There’s still no deal between the BC SPCA and the city after the two parties met Tuesday morning to discuss a way to bring the society back to Campbell River.

We both have work to do,” Daniell said. “We’re going to go away and see how we can make it work in Campbell River.” Veterinarian Helen Kwong who, along with Cyriel DeBruyne, was selected as a public representative to listen in on the meeting, was optimistic after the two sides met. “I feel more of a glimmer of hope Continued on A4

Diversity in forestry is the way to go, say Truck Loggers PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Restricting log exports won’t help B.C.’s forestry industry, but encouraging diversification will, says Dwight Yochim, executive director of The Truck Loggers Association. The coastal-based association of independent loggers has approximately 425 members, including 74 in Campbell River. “That is a pretty significant number of employers and a big part of Campbell River’s economy,” says Yochim during a stop in the city Tuesday. Yochim, a registered professional forester, is touring coastal communities making sure the association’s “voice” is heard as the provincial election ramps up. “We also want to see the parties’ platforms on forestry,” he says. “The NDP’s is interesting. For the most part it’s pretty decent. One thing to caution though is the talk of reducing log exports. It sounds great, but it’s not easy.”
It’s simple economics, he says. For several years now, demand dwindled and prices dropped. Additionally, logging on the coast, particularly Vancouver Island, is among the most costly anywhere in North America. Shipping logs overseas has kept a lot of the independent loggers going through the downturn, Yochim points out, because international buyers were simply able to offer more for the same log compared to B.C. buyers. But supply is not the problem, he insists. In the last decade, the annual allowable cut on Crown land has not been met, partly due to the lack of demand. “If we could take the annual allowable cut, we could supply all the mills, still have extra for export, and we can continue to diversify,” he says. The good news is demand is picking up, along with prices. Diversification, says Yochim, includes expansion into U.S. commercial building, the Chinese and Indian markets, and creating more products
“ Te ch n o l o g y is n’t cheap, but it’s what we need to be a nice, viable industry,” he says. Locally

such as cross-laminated timber and wood pellets. “All of that can help create demand and the prices we need to be viable. That’s the numberone and if we work on that, the issues of export
and domestic supply go away,” he says. As well, earning top dollar for logs or lumber allows companies to invest in new equipment. For example, says Yochim, New Zealand
loggers have developed a feller-buncher that can climb 140-degree slopes, by using a specialized winch. Here on the Island, where slopes are just as steep, typical feller-
bunchers can only handle a 40-degree incline. Investing in this equipment is expensive, says Yochim, but it allows companies to remain competitive in a global market.

Sea lions: First dead animal showed up in November

headless corpses. The sea lion on the Tyee Spit was shot and it’s likely the same happened to the sea lion found at Shelter Point. The latest find is also troubling because it suggests the culprit continues to kill and decapitate the mammals. When the first sea lion was found in late
November, it was one of three dead Stellars found in Campbell River and Comox over a week’s time. According to Conttrell, two were decapitated and the third had half its head and was partially skinned. A headless harbour seal was also found in Barkley Sound the same week. “It’s not easy,” he said,
referring to the effort it would take to decapitate a sea lion which can grow more than 10 feet long and weigh more than a ton. “It would be a messy job.” To the non-expert eye, it appears the heads were cleanly, and similarly, severed on the two sea lions currently decomposing on the local beaches.
But that’s unconfirmed and there’s still not much known. Conttrell said Fisheries officers have recovered some bullet fragments, but there’s not a lot of hard evidence. The other difficulty is trying to find out when and where they were killed. Conttrell said the animals decompose slower when they’re in the water, compared to
on land, which makes time of death almost impossible to narrow down. Conttrell is calling on the public to assist in the investigation. If you see a dead or injured marine mammal, call the reporting hotline at 1-800-4654336. “It is illegal to shoot a sea lion or sea without a licence,” he said.

of the SPCA coming back to Campbell River,” Kwong said. “I think council has a tad more than a rudimentary understanding of what the SPCA is all about.

will have to fundraise in a major way.” The SPCA is offering to provide animal pound services for $95,000 per year, but that’s more than the city budgeted. The city gave its animal enforcement contract to Coastal Animal Control for $105,000 but held off on awarding the animal pound contract to Coastal for $25,000 per year. Council instead agreed to meet with the BC SPCA, which requested the city reconsider its decision on the animal impound contract. At Tuesday’s meeting, council and Daniell discussed recent history and clarified each organization’s mandate. The SPCA’s goal was to give council a better under-
standing of all the services the organization provides. Kwong said council proposed a partnership between the city and the SPCA to build a new shelter. “The city will donate the land and has contractors ready to donate their time and perhaps some materials, but how will the SPCA maintain this building?” Kwong questioned. “The mayor (Walter Jakeway) has suggested that the SPCA behave like a charity rather than a contractor at which time the city would look more favourably on them and treat them with kinder words. This is a technicality that the SPCA will have to examine more closely. I fear it may be full of land mines. It it were so
easy, it probably would have (already) been thought of.” Jakeway said the meeting provided some more clarity. “It was helpful for council to meet in person with Mr. Daniell and openly discuss options for how the city and community can assist the SPCA in providing quality care services for animals in need in Campbell River,” he said. Before the two parties left the table, council asked for additional data and clarification of financial information about the Campbell River SPCA branch, which the BC SPCA agreed to provide. Before sitting down to meet, the BC SPCA and the city were thousands
of dollars apart in negotiating a deal. While the BC SPCA asked for $95,000 to provide animal impound services, the city offered the BC SPCA a contract of $58,000 for pound services, plus a $34,000 grant-in-aid to assist with animal welfare issues. The city asked the SPCA to reserve five dog runs for impounded animals and share the small, cramped office space in the shelter on Merecroft Road with Coastal Animal Control. Meanwhile, SPCA supporters will be out in full force again next week, with a walk along the Sea Walk, starting at 6:30 p.m. this Tuesday at Frank James Park in Willow Point.

City warns of hazard in the river
CONGRATS Photo by Erin Wallis
A section of unused watermain that crosses the Campbell River on the underside of the provincial highway’s Willow Street bridge has broken and is hanging into the Campbell River. Boaters are advised to use caution until the hazard can be removed. The City of Campbell River was advised on Monday, April 15 by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) that a section of broken pipe is hanging from the middle of the bridge span into the water. The City is working with MoTI to determine a plan to remove the pipe as soon as possible. Until that time, markers will be placed near the pipe to make it more visible, and boaters are advised to keep clear of the hazard. “To keep boaters safe, the City has directly notified representatives of groups who regularly boat on the river,” says Jennifer Peters, the City’s utilities manager. “We encourage people to help us spread the word to fellow boaters.” Peters confirms that

City staff are working on removing a section of unused watermain that crosses the Campbell River on the underside of the provincial highway’s Willow Street bridge and has broken and is hanging into the Campbell River.
City staff met on site with representatives from MoTI and their contractor, Emcon, and confirmed that the pipe is an unused watermain that was abandoned in the late 1990s. The old watermain, installed in
1952 by the North Campbell River Water District, and remained in place following the construction of a new watermain across the same bridge in 1999. “It appears that one of the pipe anchors holding
the pipe in place had broken, and the pipe is no longer fully supported,” Peters adds. Staff from the Navigable Waters section of Transport Canada will review plans for removal of the pipe.

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died in a helicopter crash on the Homathko River
near Stewart Island on April 13. He is Michael Kent Monson, aged 51, from Selah, Washington.
Monson was one of six aboard a helicopter on a heli-fishing trip in the Bute Inlet area on April 13.

Question: Can my dentist do botox?
Answer: Dentists have extensive knowledge of the head and neck anatomy, as it is the area they work on daily. Dentists are skilled at injections as they routinely give injections in sensitive areas. Botox has therapeutic uses and is not just for cosmetics. If you clench or grind excessively, Botox can reduce these habits, saving your teeth and relaxing Dr. Jana Lamb DMD your tense facial muscles. People who suffer from headaches are getting relief with Botox. Also, people who suffer from excessive sweating can use Botox to inhibit the sweat glands. In 1992 it was two Canadian ophthalmologists who first used Botox to treat wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. This treatment has been approved by the FDA and it is reported to last up 4-6 months. Botox treatment offers advantages for men and women. Botox is a purified protein which is safely metabolized by the body. The appointments are short and you are able to carry on with your day as it allows for natural movement of the face. Results last up to 6 months or even longer with repeated use. The CDSBC has approved the use of Botox in dental offices. For more information or to find out if Botox will work for you please contact Dr. Jana Lamb for a Complimentary Cosmetic Consult at 250-287-7343. If you have a question you would like answered please email Carmen@dogwooddental.com

The helicopter crashed shortly after take-off from one location along the Homathko River and plunged back into the river. The other five persons on board were able to exit the helicopter and were rescued; however, Monson was deceased at the scene. An RCMP underwater recovery team recovered Mr. Monson’s body on April 15. Five others on board, including the pilot, escaped with non-lifethreatening injuries. Shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, the Campbell River RCMP received a report of a helicopter crash near Bute Inlet.
This remote inlet is approximately 100 kilometres northeast of the city of Campbell River. Initial reports indicated that the helicopter, with one pilot and five passengers on board, went down and overturned in the Homathko River. The Rescue Coordination Center dispatched a Search and Rescue Team from CFB Comox after receiving details of the crash. The pilot and four passengers who were able to escape were initially transported to Campbell River hospital for examination. Four have since been released, while the fifth person, a passenger, remains in a Victoria
area hospital undergoing further treatment. The fifth passenger on board, a 48-year-old man, was trapped in the wreckage and unable to escape, Cpl. Darren Lagan said. The RCMP Underwater Recovery Team will attempt to recover his body from the submerged wreckage later today. The BC Coroner Service, Campbell River RCMP, and the RCMP Forensic Identification Section attended the crash site Sunday, and will return today to continue their investigation. All evidence to date suggests that the helicopter crashed to the ground a short time after takeoff.

Director wants SRD to chip in for SPCA KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The Strathcona Regional District is looking into the feasibility of taking on the SPCA. Director and City Councillor Larry Samson put forward a motion asking regional district staff to look at options for funding the service. Samson put forward a motion that staff look into a shared SPCA service between all the areas that make up the Strathcona Regional District. He further suggested the regional district approach the Regional District of Mount Waddington (North Island) about participating in a North Island service with cost sharing options. With the Campbell River branch ceasing its operations over the Easter weekend, there is currently no SPCA north of the Comox Valley. The SPCA had been contracted out by the city to provide animal control services for the past 30 years. Brenda Leigh, director for Area D, said her area has also made annual contributions to the SPCA, including $59,000 in both 2012 and
2013. Area D dog owners also purchase licences for their dogs. Leigh said as a contributer to the SPCA, she doesn’t understand why the city never consulted her when it decided to award its animal services contract to a different company. “Area D has been paying through their taxes and we buy dog licences,” Leigh said. “I want to formally object that we were not consulted about the change in contract. Campbell River made this decision behind closed doors and without consulting us and I’m very, very unhappy with that. I want the SPCA back for my constituents.” But other electoral directors had no interest in a regional SPCA. “I understand about animal welfare but this is not something I could take back to my community and ask them to pay for,” said Craig Anderson, director representing Gold River. Gerald Whalley, Area A director, said the same thing. “This isn’t something I can take back to my constituents in Kyuquot or Sayward, it’s just

not appropriate for us,” Whalley said. Director and City Councillor Ron Kerr was unimpressed with the electoral directors’ disinterest. “The one thing I’ve heard a lot of is ‘I can’t take this back to my community’. But what we’ve come to realize in the past couple of months is a lot of the electoral areas and North Island communities are bringing their animals to our shelter,” Kerr said. “It may not be appropriate at this very instant to deal with it, but it is an important issue and we can’t let it slide.” Ted Lewis, director representing Zeballos, said he would be happy with such a service as his community does not have the capacity to run an animal shelter. “This is something I’d gladly take to my council because we’ve spent hours talking about this with no solution,” Lewis said. In the end, the board voted to have staff look into a regional SPCA shelter. Leigh, John MacDonald (Sayward), Abram, and Anderson were opposed.
Change rooms in the park on the way KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
City council is choosing not to go with the lowest bidder in awarding the contract for construction of change rooms in Willow Point Park. Council has typically gone with the lower quote to save taxpayers money but in this case, the lowest bidder did not provide the city with what it was looking for. A request for proposals was issued by the city to build and install a flush washroom and change building to serve the new splash park, playground, tennis and basketball courts, and park users. Three companies – RecTec Industries, Scott Richmond, and K&L Spooner – responded and each provided a different price tag for the work. Clinton Crook, the city’s senior buyer, said RecTec provided the highest quote ($161,793) while Scott Richmond ($117,800) gave the lowest. “Even though Scott Richmond Ltd. did submit a lower price, their offer consisted of two separate buildings, instead of one, with potable water tanks, grey water sewage tanks, and did not offer several
of the preferred features including electric heat and water, electric hand dryers, exhaust fans, and floor drains,” said Crook in a report to council. “As such, their proposal did not suit the city’s requirements.” So council on Tuesday decided to go with local company K&L Spooner Construction, which
offered its services for $142,514 and scored the highest on the city’s ranking system. The city budgeted $300,000 for the change room, which will be paid for from the city’s Parks Capital Fund. “The change house will serve as an overdue facility for Willow Point Park and the Sportsplex,” said Coun.

Refuse to live in fear We weren’t standing in the line of fire. We weren’t hit by shards of shrapnel. We didn’t smell the acrid smoke or feel the percussive thrust, but we were all hurt deeply by the horrific explosions at the Boston Marathon on Monday. We say: Fear is It’s been an emotional, fear-filled week. The aftermath of the bombings a weapon easily had most of us glued to the news, wielded, a disease hoping to learn why. The answer to that may never come, quickly spread or if it does, it may not make sense. It’s difficult to make sense of the senseless. Terrorist acts like these bombings are meant to hurt us all. Some of us physically, brutally, even more of us at an
emotional level. Fear is a weapon easily wielded, a disease that too quickly spreads. Whether or not you’re a runner, this week you likely felt that fear, that vulnerability. You likely shed tears for people you’ve never met. Perhaps you said a prayer or hugged your loved ones a little closer. Fred Rogers has been often quoted this week. The U.S. children’s TV host, Mister Rogers said: “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’” In the days after the bombings, many stories have focused on the survivors and those who came to their
rescue. Selfless bystanders who rendered aid, those who staunched the flow of blood with bare hands, those who carried the wounded to safety. Here at home, far from the scene of the carnage, we showed our support, our solidarity with those personally affected by the blasts. As the shock and anger began to subside, our community came together to remember those affected by the Boston bombings, runners wore ribbons, held vigils and made vows to support those affected. In the days ahead we may continue to feel the emotional impact of the blasts, but we must remember, we can’t run from fear, rather we should run despite it. – Black Press
Letters It’s important to know what electoral finance reform would allow and not allow (Financing provincial elections, Campbell River Mirror, April 11, 2013).

It would stop corporations and unions from writing cheques to their favourite political party, leaving the impression ? if not the reality ? of undue influence. Corporations and unions also can’t vote. But it won’t stop them from participating in the political process; it’ll just be in their voice, not someone else’s. And their spending will be limited in a campaign, as it is today; limits that have already been deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court of Canada. As the Court noted in 2004: ?If a few groups are able to flood the electoral discourse with their message, it is possible, indeed likely, that the voices of some will be drowned out? And that’s why it’s time to take big money out of B.C. politics. Since 2005, corporations and unions have donated $60 million to the B.C. Liberals and NDP. In the same period, as a result of federal legislation, not a single cent has flowed from corporations and unions to Canada’s political parties. Yet, Canada still has a “robust political tradition,” as will B.C. when similar rules are adopted here. Dermod Travis IntegrityBC Please keep your letters brief.

Election notebook: Just leave the kids at home
Paul Rudan No, really
Pity the child who’s dragged along to political events. They’re usually attended to by doting parents who trot out their pride and joy to exemplify that today’s political party “stands for the future,” i.e. the kid. The trouble is, most children could care less about politicians and even less so for their speeches. Our first example of the campaign is found in NDP leader Adrian Dix’ opening election address in Vancouver (www.bcndp.ca/video/ adrian-dix-campaign-launch). Dix is surrounded by smiling party faithful, but it doesn’t take long for one little girl in a pink shirt and jean jacket to steal the show. At exactly one minute and 11 seconds into the six-minute, 21-second video, she lets out a huge yawn followed by a full-out body stretch to indicate the
full extent of her boredom. More yawns and fidgeting follows as her mother, apparently unaware, listens intently to Dix’ speech. I can well imagine the mom’s mortification when she sees the video. Let that be a lesson to all parents who think that boring their children at political events – which they can barely comprehend – is a good idea. ●●● My first reporter’s job was in Clinton, a small farming town in southwestern Ontario. And the last stories I wrote there were about the 1990 provincial election. It was a strange time. The Liberals were doing quite well in the polls, especially after ousting the Progressive Conservatives which had ruled for 42 years! But then Liberal Premier David Petersen
committed a fatal mistake. He called a snap election, just three years into his mandate, and voters turned on him. They were suspicious of the motives, put off with the arrogant behaviour and ticked off with the waste of taxpayers’ money. On a dark and stormy September night the winds of change literally blew through Ontario in one of the greatest political upsets in Canadian history: The NDP won a majority government while the Ontario Liberals suffered its greatest defeat; even the premier got the boot from his own riding. It was a stunning victory for the NDP and perhaps most stunned by the win was the NDP candidate for Huron County. Paul Klopp was in his early 30s, married with three little kids, and his late corn crop was due to be harvested in a
week or two. But all that had to be put aside because his new job was in Toronto at Queen’s Park. As lighting flashed, thunder boomed and rains washed away the red Liberal banners, Klopp stood in a century-old creamery and ranted about David Petersen’s government. When he stepped down from the speakers’ platform I tapped him on the shoulder and said, “Criticism is fine when you’re in opposition, but YOU are now the government.” Here in B.C., I think today’s NDP is far more poised to govern than its old Ontario counterparts. But even when it appears certain the New Democrats will form the next government, nothing is for sure, especially when the voters howl and the winds of change scour the land.

Today’s issue: Forestry and log exports This week we asked the North Island’s three MLA candidates: 1. What is your party’s policy or plan for log exports? 2. How does your party’s forestry policy benefit companies, workers and the environment, specifically for the North Island? Claire Trevena, NDP An NDP government will invest significantly to help grow the forest industry and improve the health of B.C. forests. The plan will see a $100-million increase annually, phased in over five years. We will work in partnership with industry to identify new markets and increase exports. The goal will be to grow global markets and also increase the value of harvested timber through reducing raw log exports and promoting valueadded industries in B.C., to process some of that timber rather than exporting jobs with the raw logs. This would provide new jobs and benefit the economies of Campbell
River, Port McNeill and other forestry-based communities. The B.C. Liberals have badly mismanaged B.C.’s trillion-dollar forest asset; in February 2012, the Auditor General issued a scathing rebuke, saying it is leading to lower timber supply and less species diversity. Yet, the 2013 Liberal budget cut $35-million from forest health, which includes re-planting and inventory management. The NDP will invest to improve the health of B.C.’s forest base. A priority will be updating forest inventories; precise knowledge of what timber is available is essential to sustainable harvesting. Other initiatives include doubling the seedlings planted on Crown land and a renewed emphasis on land-use planning at the regional and local levels. The forest industry will also benefit from our plan to invest in apprenticeships and skills training. This strategy is the NDP’s commitment to a competitive, profitable and sustainable forest

industry that provides well-paying jobs in our forest dependent communities on the North Island. Nick Facey, B.C. Liberals B.C.’s mills are always the preferred destination for our timber and together we produce world-class value-added forest products. However, log exports are the reality of staying competitive in today’s timber market and they provide a key component to keeping workers employed in our local
forest sector. While the NDP refuses to accept and understand these facts, today’s BC Liberals are committed to an approach that meets the needs of both our mills and our economy: ■ Work with the coastal forest industry to balance the needs of those in the industry. ■ Co-sponsor with the forest industry annual trade missions to Asia to ensure continued export lumber growth in these established and emerging markets. ■ Increasing lumber demand will drive log
prices into a competitive range where they will more naturally flow to B.C. mills. ■ Direct B.C. Timber Sales to identify more wood for local sawmills without compromising our obligations under inter nat ional t rade agreements. We have modernized B.C.’s forest policy, moving away from the broken and over-regulated policies that we inherited from the NDP. The B.C. Liberal’s forest policy is an integrated platform that ensures B.C.’s forest companies

George appeared in Campbell River provincial court Monday and pleaded guilty to driving while prohibited in Port McNeill. Surprisingly, it’s the first time George has had that particular offence on his record. Of his 39 convictions, 16 are for speeding, 13 for driving without a licence, four for no insurance and two for impaired driving. Goddard wanted Judge Brian Saunderson to
impose a 10-year driving ban on George, and to consider either jail time or a fine of up to $1,000. The prosecutor added there were no mitigating circumstances in the case and, “the aggravating circumstances, of course, are this huge record.” But the Crown’s position puzzled defence lawyer Paul Corbett who interrupted the sentencing hearing. George’s case was waived from Port Hardy
provincial court to Campbell River and Corbett had apparently arranged a deal with another prosecutor. “As I understand it, it was a $500 fine and a oneyear driving prohibition?” Corbett asked. Goddard simply shook his head “no” and so the sentencing hearing was adjourned to Monday. – Paul Rudan/The Mirror

stay competitive globally, and that workers stay employed by: ■ Expanding and diversify lumber demand to create a more robust market, providing the foundation for investment in mills and logging equipment. ■ Providing training for those areas where skills are needed. Bob Bray, BC Conservatives I do not like to see barges going by in Discovery Passage loaded with logs for export.
During my campaign, however, I have learned from constituents that a premium price is paid for logs for export. These same logs, if delivered to our mills for the dimension lumber market, are valued by that market at a much lower price. I also learned that it was mainly the sale of logs for export that kept our forestry industry active in recent years. One forestry policy of the B.C. Conservative Party is to maintain access to our foreign markets by restoring the capability of the B.C. Forest Service to manage
this renewable resource. Another forestry policy of ours is to develop diversified markets for B.C.’s forest products. The B.C. Conservative Party has eight forestry policies as part of its 39 natural resources policies. Our general direction is to promote the responsible utilization of our abundant natural resources. I do not know which specific companies will benefit, but I hope all of them will. Our intent is to support the coastal forestry industry in the North Island by investing in forest research
and restoring established forest management procedures. North Island communities are fortunate that forestry is coming back to life. We will facilitate its c o nt i nu e d g row t h . Workers will benefit from increased forestry apprenticeships and high wage forestry jobs. The environment will benefit from responsible decisions made with the goal of protecting the land base in perpetuity. We believe our forests should be managed for the greatest benefit of all citizens of British Columbia.

Cortes library could re-open in four to five months KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The shuttered Cortes Island library could reopen by late summer. The Linnaea Farm Society on Cortes is working to move the library into its former schoolroom and last week inched one step closer to its goal. At a board meeting last week the Strathcona Regional District approved a bylaw that will allow public library as an accepted use in the Agricultural Land Stewardship One zone, which is where the proposed library building happens to be. As part of the bylaw amendment process, a public hearing, which drew 39 people, was held on March 27 – before the regional district approved the land use change. Andrew Smyth of the Linnaea Farm Society opened the meeting by explaining that Van-
Coming May 4th
couver Island Regional Library (VIRL) has three conditions the Linnaea Farm Society must meet. Those are: disabled access to the library via a wheelchair ramp, verifying that the floor can hold the weight of the books, and confirmation that the room could legally be used as a library. Smyth said once those conditions are met (which they now are), then “VIRL would get busy and the library could be set up by late summer.” Van c o u v e r Is l an d Regional Library has been working to re-locate the Cortes branch since it shut down the library last May due to safety concerns sur rounding
the building’s mezzanine. The library was operating out of the community hall in Manson’s Landing before an inspector found the floor was not strong enough to bear the weight of the library books and the library was closed out of fear the floor could collapse. One month later, Vancouver Island Regional Library issued a Request for Proposals for a new library space and the Linnaea Farm Society was the only respondent. The society intends to house the library in the Twinflower wing (built in 2006) of the former Linnaea School. It was in that building that the recent public hearing was held. Several Cortes Island-
ers took turns speaking in favour or against the proposed location. Andy Ellingson thought the proposal was contrary to Cortes’ Official Community Plan and said he preferred the library’s former, more central, location. “The library at Manson’s Hall was convenient,” Ellingson said, according to minutes from the public hearing. He added that the new location seems “somewhat secluded from the downtown area of Manson’s Landing” and goes against walking over driving, which is encouraged in the Official Community Plan. Resident Dianne Hentschel wrote a letter stating she also would

will be moving to an area that “has been the hub of education in the community.” Chief James Delorme also lent his support, saying the Klahoose First Nation “are in absolute favour of the library being at Linnaea Farm” and “keeping literacy central makes sense.”

Garage sale to benefit Laughing Willow Community Garden The Laughing Willow Community Garden has been four years in the making. Their garden consists of 19 beds for locals to use, a massive “soup kitchen” garden maintain by gardeners and volunteers, which produces gourmet, organic food for hungry bellies in Campbell River, a “kids” garden, and a large row of young hazelnut trees on the perimeter of the garden, that when mature will provide a tasty snack for
passers by. Their vision is to create an out-door class room for gardening workshops, to build whee chair accessible garden beds, and to continue building up a collection of fruit trees, nut trees, berries and veggies in areas around the perimeter of the garden that anyone can munch on. The garden was built by volunteers and funded by donations and grants, the Greenways Land Trust acting as our “umbrella” and
partner. On Saturday, Laughing Willow Community Garden will hold a fundraiser garage sale at the garden (1909 Simms Road) from 8 a.m. till 12 noon. People are invited to come and see what their community has built, and help keep it growing by supporting the garage sale. Donations of goods for the sale can be brought to the garden today at 2 p.m. or you can contact Chelsea at firstname.lastname@example.org to make other arrangements.

Making herbal remedies: oils and salves from local plants
Beautiful properties are featured every year on the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Annual Garden and Art Tour.
Time to line up gardens for art gallery’s annual fundraising tour
pring is here – and that means the selection committee for the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Annual Garden and Art Tour is looking for new gardens to share with the community. The committee is looking for interesting gardens to add to a selection of longtime favourites for the annual tour, which raises funds
for children’s programming at the Campbell River Art Gallery. Any and all sizes and types of gardens are considered, from beachfront acreages to small city lots. Gardeners who would like to share their love of the soil– and help raise funds for the Campbell River Art Gallery at the same time – are needed. Feel free to forward suggestions
of beautiful gardens in your neighbourhood to the selection committee. They’ll tour all suggested properties in advance. The self-guided Garden and Art Tour, sponsored by Royal LePage Campbell River, is scheduled for June 22 and 23 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and tickets are $16 per person, which includes a catalogue and
map. A tour by bus will be available through the Campbell River Community Centre. For more information about the Garden and Art Tour, call the Gallery at 250-287-2261, email email@example.com or drop by the Gallery at 1235 Shoppers Row. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon until 5p.m.
Are you interested in learning about herbal remedies you can create with locally-abundant wild and cultivated herbs? Local herbal medicine expert Janette Cormier is offering a workshop as part of the Lettuce Grow program at North Island College on Tuesday, April 23 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. “The workshop will offer participants the opportunity to get your hands on some local herbal knowledge,” says Kira DeSorcy, lead instructor for the Lettuce Grow series. “Janette will teach about herbs that can be used to make infused oils, and participants will get the chance to practice as well.” Using herbal oils, participants will learn to prepare salves. Each participant will take home a finished salve and an oil in process (great for those gardener’s hands!). All materials are included. According to Cormier, using local plants for herbal remedies is a natural fit with food security and sustain-
ability, one that encourages people to explore their connection to healing and the planet. “Herbal medicine is a much deeper, more meaningful sense of place and connection with our natural world.” Cormier says. “And, of course, herbal medicine is sustainable when we maintain healthy plants and ecosystems, which gives gardeners another reason to be careful stewards of the land.” For more information or to register for this or another Lettuce Grow workshop visit http://www.nic.bc.ca/ continuingeducation/ or call Julia Peters at 250-923-9724. Like this article? What to hear more? Is there a workshop you would like them to organize? Send your questions and requests to growlocal@ campbellriver.ca The Lettuce Grow courses and article series support the implementation of the City’s Agriculture Plan and the community sustainability goal of local food self-sufficiency and resiliency.
Help some pets in need at Bosley’s Campbell River pet retailer, Bosley’s at Mariner Square, are encouraging animal lovers to lend a paw this April to help pets in need. April 19-21 is National Adoption Weekend at Bosley’s Mariner Square — dedicated to finding new homes for abandoned, homeless and abused animals in the community. Their goal is to find homes for 10 pets. Vancouver Island Dog Rescue Society and Quadra Island Cats Society will be in-store with animals available for adoption and collecting donations in support of their charity. One hundred per cent of donations from Pet Appreciation Month and National Adoption Weekend stay in the community.
The event includes 4H petting zoo, face painting, live music, prizes and samples. Local musical talent will include Austin Burbidge, Adrian Lamothe, Collin Massle, Aleasha Attfield, Ashley Maddison, Kat Zettler and Jango Cashato. “In 2012, Bosley’s stores raised more than $40,000 for pets in need,” says Julie Johnston, VP, Marketing and Merchandising. “Last year, during our Pet Appreciation event alone, we raised over $31,000 for local pets in need, contributing to the over $600,000 raised nationally with our sister brands, Pet Valu and Paulmac’s. We’re working hard to exceed our 2013 goal of $60,000 this April.”

City ramps up Ken Forde for May 1 opening | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR | FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013
The City of Campbell River is working to have the Ken Forde boat ramp open by May 1. “Thanks to our 2012 agreement signed with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), the City is able to schedule regular maintenance of the boat ramps,” says Ross Milnthorp, the City’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. “The Ken Forde boat ramp in particular is clogged with logs and gravel from winter storms, and the agreement now allows us to stockpile and use that material to rebuild
eroded foreshore along our waterfront.” Boat ramp clearing work is timed with the tides, and an estimated 1,200 cubic yards of material will be removed from the boat ramp areas this year. The locations to be restored will be determined later this spring. The city budgets $50,000 each year for beach restoration, funded by the Federal Gas Tax Community Works Fund. In 2008, the City of Campbell River began following Mother Nature’s lead to better protect approximately
16 kilometres of the community’s stormbattered waterfront. Soft shore restoration is now the preferred approach for city-owned shoreline property. “It’s cost-efficient, looks natural, keeps land from washing into the sea, restores habitat, protects infrastructure and enhances safe public access to the foreshore,” Milnthorp explains. Soft shore restoration re-creates a natural beach slope using driftwood, logs and gravel cleared from local boat launches. Waves break offshore and lose their
power rolling up a gradual slope – rather than pounding water and debris against armouring. The natural contour also encourages the northern movement of wood and gravel up the coast, a vital link for healthy fish habitat. Video and onsite inspection indicate that soft shores help keep roads, utilities infrastructure and the community’s popular seawalk from being washed away by winter storms. The City’s first soft shore restoration was at the City’s Dick Murphy Park, where a badly-
eroded marine shore previously reinforced with waste materials and contaminants was recontoured using native materials and salvaged plants. The restoration work received a gold level rating from the Green Shores Technical Working Group, a project of the Stewardship Centre for BC. In an innovative solution to solve two problems, the City of Campbell River and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) signed an agreement in September 2012 that approves restoring damaged shoreline using
approximately 1,200 cubic yards of material that clogs the City’s boat ramps each year. Based on Campbell River’s Marine Foreshore Habitat Assessment and Restoration Plan, the agreement complies with the Federal Fisheries Act, clarifies acceptable work procedures in and around the marine foreshore and is expected to shorten the DFO review process time from months to 10 working days. The plan identifies priority foreshore locations for future restoration
and/or beach nourishment, and every year, up to 200 metres of eroding shoreline is restored – and public boat ramps are kept open. “With this agreement, Campbell River has demonstrated how seriously it takes its obligation to restore degraded and eroded foreshore areas,” Milnthorp adds. ”This approach is particularly essential in view of the anticipated rise is sea/tidal levels linked to climate change, and this agreement sets an example for other coastal communities to follow.”
Inspire creative recycling ideas and get all the raw material you need by browsing the Plant & Jumble Sale on Saturday. It all takes place in the
Community Centre gym from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Up-cycling is recycling with a twist – where a little imagination turns rummage and garage
sale finds into even better treasures. But wait, there’s more! The annual Plant & Jumble Sale attracts many gardeners seek-
ing plants, seeds, herbs, bulbs and even gardening magazines. The gym is jammed with everything garden and garage,
books and puzzles, quilting and knitting, plus a silent auction of new and nearly-new items. Upstairs in the Com-
munity Centre, a Pottery Show & Sale in the lounge and pottery demonstrations across the hall in the Craft Room will round out the fun. Add the smell of homemade baking, fresh soup and popcorn, and you have a Saturday event with something for the whole family. City of Campbell River

Get a kick out of second season of kickball The buzz has already started over the start of the second season of the Adult Kickball League. Remember when Seymour Pacific’s Psychedelic Warriors won last
year’s epic final game? Those six teams vying for the coveted championship demonstrated the popularity of the game, and the Campbell River recreation depart-
ment hopes last season’s success will help the league grow to eight or more teams this year. “A combination of baseball, soccer and dodge ball, this fun
kickball league is for adults looking to get some exercise, increase their reaction time and meet other people who enjoy having a ball thrown at them,”
explains recreation programmer Kevin Elmore. “The sport is growing in popularity across North America and provides an alternative to conventional sports – bringing out the fun-loving kid in everyone.” Also known as California kickball, the game is played on a baseball diamond, with the same field setup. Players kick a rubber ball that is pitched, instead of hitting a baseball with a bat. Once the ball is kicked, players run the
bases while the other team throws the ball to get them out. Just like baseball, the bases are safe, and if the ball is caught before it touches the ground that player is out. This year’s kickball season begins Thursday, May 2, with games running until the end of June. Games are played eveni ngs between 7 and 9 p.m. at Ecole des Deux Mondes (EDM) school. Register as a single player and/or as a teams
of eight (or more) before 3 p.m. Apr. 24 by calling or stopping into the Sportsplex. Having trouble finding enough players for a team? Contact league coordinator Kevin Elmore at the Community Centre, who might be able to arrange players to join your team. For more information and rules of play for this new rec league, please call the Sportsplex at 250-923-7911 or the Community Centre at 250-286-1161.

It’s a musical jungle out there for the Community Band
Musical humourist Todd Butler will be performing at the Heriot Bay Inn on April 27.
Whimsical wit, outrageous satire...it must be Todd Butler
If you like to laugh (and who doesn’t?) you won’t want to miss Todd Butler’s musical performance at the Heriot Bay Inn on Quadra Island. Butler continues the long tradition of using humour to help us see matters from another perspective. He applies his outrageously creative brand of social commentary to a vast array of subjects: you will definitely be entertained. His wordplay and commentary alone are enough to make Butler a humourist of note, but his grasp of
serious songwriting and mastery of guitar puts him in a new category. Butler has been guest host of CBC Radio’s Madly Off in All Directions, has performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Vancouver Comedy Festival and the Calgary Folk Festival. Saturday April 27 Todd Butler appears at the Heriot Bay Inn. Whimsical wit, outrageous political satire... and a tasty two course dinner for only $40 per person. Reserve your seats by calling the Inn: 250-285-3322.

The event, scheduled for 7:30 at the Carihi multi-purpose room, will also have have a big surprise, a guest band members are very excited about. Former Campbell River Community Band conductor Chris Unger, who is just finishing his doctoral studies at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, will be conducting the second half of the concert. Unger, who led the band for a year, has received a Frederick Fennell Fellowship for advanced conducting and has served as the assistant conductor of both the Eastman Wind Orchestra and the Eastman Wind Ensemble. The animal world is vast, and the Friday evening concert is similarly wideranging. The concert will open

Unionists mark National Day of Mourning O
ver 1000 Canadian workers die every year because their workplaces were not safe. Some die on the job. Others die because of injuries sustained at work or occupational diseases, including some types of cancer. Too often, their employers failed to ensure their safety at work. In addition, there are many others whose
FRIDAY, APRIL 19, 2013 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |
deaths are not reported because they die of a disease that wasn’t recognized as an occupational disease. The number of people killed at work each year in Canada has been increasing for the last 15 years. This is in contrast to almost every other OECD country where the incidence of workplace fatalities is declining. In many jurisdictions,
including B.C., monitoring of safety standards has been cut back or replaced by “voluntary” industry compliance. The Campbell River Courtenay and District Labour Council joins the B.C. Federation of Labour and the Canadian Labour Congress in calling for the strengthening of legislation to protect worker safety, the hiring of more health and safety inspectors, and the prosecu-
tion of employers when their actions cause death or serious injury to workers. The Day of Mourning for Workers Killed and Injured on the Job has grown into a worldwide event observed by unions, central labour bodies, labour councils, municipalities and national governments, including the Parliament of Canada which officially recognized the Day of Mourning in
1991. The Labour Council will host a national Day of Mourning ceremony at noon on Sunday, April 28 at Frank James
Park in Campbell River. Speakers will include BC NDP candidate, Claire Trevena and Campbell River, Courtenay & District Labour
Council president, Andrea Craddock. For more information, call Tom Hopkins at 250-923-5496. All are welcome.

Greenways trust has dreams of a marathon KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
ALISTAIR TAYLOR/THE MIRROR
Youth baseball players got right to the action on the opening day of the Minor Baseball season Saturday. Clockwise from above: Mets’ Tyler Duffy tags up at first by diving for the base before Yankees first baseman Jacob Wouters can tag him out; Brayden Graham makes a beeline for third during the Red Sox-Blue Jays Mosquito division tilt; while the Jays and Sox get into a squeeze play at third in the same game. Minor baseball action continues this weekend at Nunns Creek Park.

Greenways Land Trust is hosting an inaugural fun run this fall to raise awareness of the Greenways Loop – a trail that circles the city. The Frogger 15km is a friendly, non-competitive race which will raise money for a local charity – Greenways Land Trust which was established in 1996 and works to create and manage the city’s greenways networks, as well as teach the community about conservation. The non-profit is mostly run by volunteers, who put in more than 1,700 hours in 2012 to work on community projects that improved the city’s greenspaces. Erin Nowak, operations manager for Greenways, said the race will take place Sept. 21 and start and finish at Spirit Square. Participants will head west down 16th Avenue, south down the ERT Road to the Beaver Lodge Lands Rail Trail and return to Spirit Square via the same route north to the finish. The race is open to runners of all levels and relay teams. “The goals of Frogger 15 is to raise money for a local charity, raise awareness of the 25 kilometre Greenways Loop, attract people to the downtown core and promote responsible recreation,” Nowak said. The Greenways Loop is a recreational trail around the perimeter of Campbell River, that includes the Beaver Lodge Lands, the Sea Walk and the Jubilee Connector – a 2.5 kilometre trail along Jubilee Parkway and Highway 19A. The connector links South Dogwood Street to the Campbell River welcome sign. The final stage of the Greenways Loop is designed but awaiting funding. It will continue from the welcome sign to the current end of Rotary Sea Walk at Maryland Drive. Nowak said participants will be asked to pay a nominal fee to take part in the Frogger 15km and the goal is to have the registration fees annually cover the majority of the event costs. Coun. Claire Moglove wanted to know if Greenways is considering turning the Frogger into a marathon. “It would be a great attraction on a provincial scale. I don’t think there are any marathons that run through a trail,” Moglove said. “I have to say that a fun run and 15 k in the same sentence is an oxymoron.” Nowak said the ultimate goal is to turn it into a marathon, but right now that isn’t feasible without having the final stage of the Greenways Loop complete. Greenways’ goal is to have 250 people sign up for the race. Greenways launched the new event in January when it kicked off a community contest for the best logo. Heather Magee was the lucky winner, and her logo will be used to promote the race.

Cache In-Trash Out is the theme for Sunday’s Earth Day at Ken Forde Park. It’s also the name of the ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, volunteers around the globe have been beautifying their local parks and outdoor spaces, while having some fun geocaching too. This Sunday the cachers turn their collective attention to Ken Forde
Park in Willow Point. From 2-5 p.m., volunteers will be picking up garbage along the beach from the Willow Creek estuary to Dahl Road. As well, there are a couple geocaches along the SeaWalk that can be found. All volunteers will receive a Cache In-Trash Out icon on their souvenirs page. As well, bring plenty of water and something to barbecue on the beach fire to be held afterwards.
The Museum at Campbell River will host an afternoon designed to introduce people to the adventurous world of geocaching. The museum’s ‘Geocaching Day’ on Saturday, April 27 from 1-3 p.m. is open to novices and experts alike. Geocachers hide waterproof containers of various sizes in places accessible to the public, note the latitude and longitude with a GPS (global positioning system) unit, and post the locations online. Using the posted coordinates, other players attempt to track down the hidden caches. ‘Caches’ are hidden
cache to cache. The museum is also looking for local groups interested in sponsoring their own ‘Geocaching Trackable Item’. These items, as they travel the globe, can be given an online profile that includes a history of your group, photographs, or an assigned ‘special mission’. With over four million geocachers and over one million geocaches, this is a great way to put your group out into the world for explorers to see. Come to the museum on April 27 to get involved in the intriguing world of geocaching.
in any spot and vary in scale. The world’s largest geocache is in Coombs. When found, players open it to sign their name in the logbook and find a potential surprise. It is these surprises where ‘Geo-Trackables’ come in. A Trackable is a form of physical geocaching ‘game piece’. Each Trackable is etched with a unique code that can be used to log its movements on the website Geocaching. com as it travels in the real world. Some of these items have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles thanks to geocachers who move them from

I don’t know about you, but I can point to a few roadside advertising signs that I’m familiar with that cause me discomfort due to their brightness when I approach them in darkness. It is almost as if the lighting level needed to make the sign stand out during the day has not been moderated when night falls. Since your eyes quickly adapt to the brightness level but take significantly longer to return to dark vision after you pass the sign, this can be a dangerous situation. Depending on where you are driving, signs beside the highway are regulated by municipalities within their borders or the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure outside of municipalities. Either municipal bylaws or the Transportation Act provide the authority to require changes if these signs are a nuisance to passing road users. These bodies are also the authorities that grant permission to install the signs in the first place.

Nuisance Lights Lights, without a doubt the subject that generates the greatest number of requests for DriveSmartBC articles. We’ve looked at almost every kind of light connected with the operation of a vehicle or cycle on a highway in British Columbia, so it’s time to widen our view to the roadside. Have you been blinded by the light emitted by newer LED advertising signs?
I cannot find any published standards for how much light from LED signs is considered to be hazardous, so complaints about them may be difficult to satisfy. The opinion of the MOTI official or bylaw enforcement officer may or may not match yours. However, a carefully worded complaint outlining your difficulty should raise the possibility of liability for a crash with both the official and the sign owner and that may be enough to cause a change.
