Bong mascot ruffles feathers in Esquimalt

NDP would place two-year freeze on ferry fares Tom Fletcher Black Press

Councillor crafts bylaw targeting business mascots, not sports teams’ A budding business owner’s marketing ploy is prompting one Esquimalt councillor to attempt to snuff out the scheme. A costumed mascot designed to look like a bong – a filtration device used by smokers of everything from tobacco to marijuana – has been periodically seen strolling near the intersection of Esquimalt and Admirals roads to promote The Bong Warehouse, which opened in December. Owner Ryan Place said he’s being unfairly targeted by a proposed bylaw from Coun. Tim Morrison, one that would require businesses to get a permit from the township to use costumed mascots in public places. “I’ve seen mascots since I was a little boy for a whole variety of businesses,” Place said, addDaniel Palmer ing he’s not attracting unsavoury people to the Reporting neighbourhood. “There were problems in Esquimalt long before we came around. On sunny days, (the mascot) sits on the corner of the road and smiles. People like to get their picture taken with him.” Morrison said he has received dozens of complaints from both businesses and residents since the mascot began making appearances. People in Esquimalt are in favour of a more familyfriendly image for the township, he added. “If this was downtown Vancouver or Toronto, this kind of thing wouldn’t be such a big deal,” Morrison said. “But when you’re a small community like Esquimalt, it gets magnified and has the danger of becoming almost a symbol.” The proposed bylaw includes exemptions for mascot use by non-profit organizations and at various community events. Businesses using mascots without permits could be fined between $250 to $1,000 for the infraction, the proposal states. But Morrison stresses bylaw infractions are complaint-driven, so most businesses wouldn’t be affected. “It’s your constitutional right to protest marijuana usage … (but) that’s not what we’re talking about,” he said. “We’re talking about a business person trying to market their business in a

Some residents have complained that the mascot doesn’t represent a positive image for the community. public space that infringes on other businesses.” Place has been cautioned in the past for violating advertising bylaws, including parking a cube van with flashing lights in front of his shop and installing oversized signage, Morrison said. Council will debate Morrison’s motion at its April 22 meeting at 7 p.m., and Place said he plans to attend. dpalmer@vicnews.com

An NDP government would cancel a fourper-cent increase in B.C. Ferries fares scheduled for next spring, freezing rates for two years while conducting an audit to determine the future of coastal ferry service. NDP transportation critic Maurine Karagianis said Wednesday her party would provide an additional $20 million in each of the next two years to make up for fare revenue lost by cancelling the increase, which was ordered last year by B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee. Karagianis wouldn’t rule out further reductions in low-ridership sailings. She said the independent ferry commissioner’s office would continue to operate, but “certainly the ferry corporation doesn’t always take every recommendation the ferry commissioner makes.” The commissioner has authority under the Coastal Ferry Act to set rate caps for all 25 salt-water routes, and as of last year the office was also given the power to determine service levels on those routes. Macatee just completed a review of ferry operations designed to find $26 million in savings. The province launched the review in May 2012, after adding an additional $79.5 million to the coastal ferry service’s annual subsidy over four years, bringing it to about $180 million a year. Transportation Minister Mary Polak released the ferry consultation report in March, after meetings in coastal communities to set out options for cutting costs. Polak said no specific service reductions would be made until this summer at the earliest, but denied she was putting off bad news until after the May 14 election. Polak has emphasized that little-used ferry sailings cannot continue indefinitely, as overall ferry ridership has declined in recent years and B.C. Ferries has lost money even with increased subsidies. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Victoria runners show solidarity with Boston W

ith the world reeling and looking for answers about the Boston Marathon bombing, Victoria wasted no time showing solidarity, with residents and runners alike eager to lend their support. Wednesday night’s (April 17) Free Run 5K at Beacon Hill Park commemorated the victims of the Boston bombings. Runners wore ribbons on their shoes in yellow and blue, Boston Marathon’s official colours. Around town, running groups held moments of silence Travis before heading out for Paterson their regular training. Reporting Organizers of the Island Race Series anticipated a gesture of some type will be dedicated to Boston at the Sooke 10K on Sunday. The TC 10K on April 28 is also looking at opportunities to direct donations towards the Boston victims, said race sponsor Rob Reid, owner of FrontRunners. “Runners are tenacious and strong willed, and the months and the prep that goes into running a marathon shows that strong character that is at the fibre of runners globally,” said Reid, a director of the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon. A six-time veteran of the Boston Marathon, Reid feels a strong connection to those runners who were unable to share in the euphoric moment that comes at the Boston finish line. “Boston was what got us into marathoning. In the 1970s it was one of

Dave Milne, owner of Peninsula Runners and organizer of the free run in Beacon Hill Park, shows off one of the blue and yellow ribbons he will be handing out for runners to wear in memory of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. the only ones around. It’s Mount Everest for runners. I went from zero to wanting to run in Boston.” There’s definitely a buzz going around the running community that people want to stand up to this act of terrorism, said Dave Milne, who organizes regular five-kilometre “free runs” at Beacon Hill Park through his Saanich store, Peninsula Runners. “We started the free runs three years ago. They’re just open events that people can come out and participate in,” said Milne,

who is also the director of the Oak Bay Half Marathon. “By (Wednesday morning) we had gone from 80 registered to 150.” Runners were also encouraged to wear Boston Marathon running gear. “We talked about cancelling it and postponing Wednesday’s race but after a lot of talking ... we decided to dedicate the run to Boston,” Milne said. “A lot of people are running today because they can. Because of Boston.” sports@vicnews.com

TC 10K bumping up police presence Travis Paterson News staff

Within a few hours of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing on Monday, TC 10K race director Jacqui Sanderson was on the phone with Victoria police. About 13,000 people are expected for the April 28 race through downtown Victoria. Though there is no reason to suggest any added security risks in the wake of the Boston tragedy, the TC 10K will bulk up its police and security presence, just in case. “We’ll put additional resources on race weekend but there’s no evidence to suggest

www.vicnews.com • A3

any added risk. The TC 10K is a community event about the celebration of health and fitness and we want to continue promoting that celebration,” Sanderson said. At no time did organizers consider cancelling the popular run. To connect the Boston Marathon with a much smaller running event in Victoria is a stretch, said Adam Molnar, a political science doctoral student at UVic who is researching security and emergency management in the context of major sporting events. “I think it’s important that a positive tradition (such as the TC 10K) be allowed to continue in a way that maintains it as a sports

event for the community and not a security event,” Molnar said. “That being said, Victoria needs to have a security strategy proportional to the city and event.” There’s a lot less pressure for Victoria’s second biggest race, the Goodlife Fitness Victoria Marathon on Oct. 13. “Because our event is not until October we are lucky, but we will be talking about it at our next meeting in May. And we’re certainly watching how the Sun Run and Vancouver Marathon (May 5) are handling it,” said Cathy Noel, general manager of the Victoria marathon. sports@vicnews.com

Bert Robillard counts himself lucky and is thankful he completed the Boston Marathon several minutes before two explosions near the finish line. The Sidney resident was running his fourth Boston Marathon, having last done so in 2003 at age 50. Robillard was among a large group of runners and volunteers a few blocks away from the finish line, about eight minutes after he finished, picking up a participation medal and trying to meet up with his wife, Helen Watt, fellow runner Lori Stenson and her partner Don Costello. That’s when the bombs went off. “I didn’t hear the explosions,” Robillard said. “No one there did, as there was a lot of noise at the time.” Having met up with his wife and Costello, they went around the corner to their hotel so he could rest. They turned on the TV and saw the chaos unfolding at the finish line. Stenson was directed away from the finish line as the second bomb went off and eventually found her friends. Robillard said the incident left him in shock and he finds himself wondering what might have happened if he had paused to rest during his run. “I was damn lucky to be where I was.” Since he qualified for the next Boston Marathon in his 60-65 age group, Robillard, 60, said he’s asking himself whether he’ll return for his fifth race next year. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

About half of that amount was used to fund city services other than parking and bylaw enforcement. City figures show that parkade use is down significantly from prior years.

Navy base commuter ferry ends today

April 24

News staff

Employees at CFB Esquimalt are anticipating even more parking headaches next week, as the only marine passenger shuttle service between the West Shore and the base terminates service. The Baseline Ferry makes its last trip between Colwood and CFB Esquimalt this afternoon (April 19). The daily privately run service began last year to replace the base’s Blue Boat service. Barry Hobbis, vice-president of operations at Victoria Har-

bour Ferry Co., which has been operating the service, was unavailable for comment. The company website, however, blames declining ridership for its inability to continue. “The real gong show will be begin on Friday,” said Mark Miller, vice-president of the B.C Union of National Defence Employees. “We had a labour management meeting yesterday, and they told us 200 people a day use this ferry. So that means another 200 vehicles are going to be added to the Colwood crawl.” The recent closure of the

Craigflower Bridge has added another layer of congestion to a bottleneck commute each day. To help relieve traffic, the base may create dedicated carpool parking, he said, adding public transit options from the West Shore to the base need to be improved. At its peak, the Blue Boat attracted 800 passengers daily, but budgetary restrictions and aging ferries spelled the end for the service last April. Baseline ferry has been operating since June 2012 and cost $5 for a return trip. dpalmer@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Don’t let fear hold you back 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. It’s been an emotional, fear-filled week. The aftermath of the bombings had most of us glued to the news, hoping to why. Fear spreads learn The answer to that may quickly, but so never come, or if it does, may not make sense. It’s does solidarity itdifficult 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. What do you think?

all, foresight was a great human attribute that brought us to a position of dominance on the planet. We used our knowledge and experiences to look ahead and recognize potential dangers and favourable circumstances so we could take control over our destiny by acting to avoid hazards and exploit possibilities. This is Canada’s moment. We are confronting a crisis with the economy and energy. No economy can grow forever; it is simply impossible on a finite planet. Shouldn’t we ask what an economy is for? How much is enough? What are the limits? How do we build a sustainable economy? We have learned from painful experience in single-resource communities that relying primarily on one major component of the economy – logging, fishing, mining – makes for dangerous boom-and-bust cycles. Nations that export fossil fuel too often become over-reliant on that sector. That destabilizes the economy (as we’re seeing in Alberta), distorts priorities (leading to the so-called “Dutch disease,” where other parts of the economy are neglected or ignored) and undermines democracy by holding government hostage (as we saw in the enormous lobbying power of industry in the last U.S. presidential election). The future of energy in Canada will determine the fate of our society. It must be widely discussed, nationally as well as provincially, beyond the boundaries of politics and economics. This is about the type of country we will leave to our children and grandchildren. davidsuzuki.org.

LETTERS Civil disobedience may stop sewage plan I have been following the wastewater saga closely for the past year. In an effort to understand it better, I have read reports, spoken to experts and attended meetings including the Capital Regional District’s own core area liquid waste management committee. Many of my questions have been answered, but mysteries remain. Why do most members of this committee continue to stumble down this road to ruin? Assuming that we need wastewater treatment in Victoria, this is certainly not the way to go about it. This planned megaproject is an enormous waste of money. It is a short-term, unsustainable folly that will prevent the development of higher environmental priorities and cripple our tax base. There are alternatives that would cost less and be more effective. Furthermore, the CRD has so far ignored the public, bullied communities and disgraced themselves in the process. This is actually a failure of government at all levels. The federal government is to blame for creating a regulation that does not recognize local circumstances.

The provincial government is to blame for following a path of perception. Regardless, the buck should have stopped at the CRD. Obviously, it did not. Now, it is up to the public to stop this monster. And they will. The pressure is growing. Even civil disobedience has been discussed. This scandal could well result in the end of some political careers and even the CRD. Dave Ferguson Saanich

Many questions asked of provincial NDP Let me say out front that my heart is with the Greens, but for practical reasons I may vote for the B.C. NDP, as defeating the B.C. Liberals is that urgent. I’ve been trying to ascertain where the NDP stands on many environmental issues, but have been getting long, yet vague responses from my MLA and the party in general. Here’s what I’d like to know: will the NDP immediately close down or remove all fish farms, possibly replacing them with on-land certified organic containers, like they have in Ireland? Will they end all fracking for liquid natural gas? Will they

protect all forests and provide forestry workers with alternative employment? Will they oppose all pipelines and tankers carrying Alberta tarsands bitumen? Will they protect our agricultural land reserve? Will they protect Shawnigan Lake and all lakes, rivers, streams and the ocean from toxic runoff? I hope the News will give all our local candidates a chance to address these issues. If the NDP continues to be vague with their answers, I am certain they will only encourage more people to vote Green. Helene Harrison Victoria

Liberals’ TV spot didn’t impress voter Now that the election campaign has officially begun, I would like to comment on the Liberal government’s pre-election advertising spot. Not only was it crass and wasteful, it was untrue. To say that B.C. taxes are low without considering the burden of the health insurance “tax” (called premiums) is at least misleading. This tax does not exist in Alberta, Saskatchewan or Manitoba.

For my partner and I, it is more than $130 per month; not easy to take when living on a pension. The Liberals have certainly lowered taxes for their corporate friends, but for ordinary B.C. residents, we do not have the lowest provincial taxes. Far from it. Enough of this anti-NDP coalition and enough of Christy Clark. I would rather pay taxes for public services, not government advertising. Brian Cousins Victoria

Resident calls mayor on endorsement line Re: Endorsements may not matter (Guest column, April 12) If Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard sees so little value in endorsements, why is he such an avid recipient of them? During the 2011 municipal election, Leonard took endorsements from former Mayor Hugh Curtis and former MP David Anderson. Leonard then accepted endorsements from the Saanich Police Association and the Saanich Firefighters’ union, the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) Local 967.

Book showcases Victoria neighbourhoods Travis Paterson News staff

Culture shock led Anny Scoones to pen a book about Victoria’s neighbourhoods. The culture shock of a farm girl becoming a city woman. It doesn’t matter that Scoones’ previous residence, historic Glamorgan Farm in North Saanich, where she spent several years, is less than 30 minutes by car from her new home, a 1911 heritage house on Medana Street in James Bay. “It’s an eight-acre farm with heritage buildings, as old a farm on the Peninsula as it gets,” Scoones said. “A lot of what goes on here in James Bay was a shock to me. It’s all the little things. The tempo of life. And the fact people put free stuff out on the curb, and it’s taken away. And it’s some pretty nice stuff.” Beach art and shrines made of various artifacts along the shore of Dallas Road also caught her fancy. So have the abundant crops produced by urban farmers. It didn’t take long before Scoones and Robert Amos united

Travis Paterson/News staff

Robert Amos and Anny Scoones, the illustrator and author of Hometown: Out and About in Victoria’s Neighbourhoods, plan to do a book tour of local bookstores by bike, starting with their launch at Winchester Galleries on Saturday (April 20). to capture James Bay and a dozen other unique areas in Greater Victoria in a book called Hometown: Out and About in Victoria’s Neighbourhoods. The book is available now in bookstores and at the library. It’s Scoones’ fourth and Amos’

Local Market Expert

seventh book on Greater Victoria, but it’s their first collaboration. A well-known painter of Victoria landmarks and longtime arts writer for the Times Colonist, Amos previously wanted to remake two of Scoones’ earlier books, Home: Tales of a Heritage Farm, and

Corporation of the township of esquimalt

Home and Away: More Tales of a Heritage Farm. The non-fiction essays and stories are based on the farm community in North Saanich. “I had an idea they should be remade with illustrations, they were perfect for it,” said Amos, the outgoing artist in residence for the Fairmont Empress. But when the two presented the idea to Ruth Linka at Touchwood Editions, the publisher had another idea. “(Linka) gets the credit on this one,” Scoones said. “She asked us, ‘Why don’t we do a book on Victoria?’ And we did.’” Granted, the neighbourhoods idea had been seeded in Scoones and Amos, they just hadn’t put their fingers on it. “It’s not a historical book for history’s sake. It’s a quirkier look at each area,” Scoones said. “There are a lot of historical books on areas and such of Victoria, but they are very intensive. This will be more of a history of now. It will say what it’s like to live here today,” Amos said. Readers who pick up the book will be tickled by the recognition

factor, Amos added. It’s a connection you can only make when your everyday life is put into a book. Eccentricities from all over the region are highlighted in Out and About. There’s the former jam factory, which most people know as the odd-shaped building at the top of Sinclair Hill up from Cadboro Bay, the fact Oak Bay has far more non-English culture than people think, and the corner store phenomenon. “Corner stores are a tradition. They’re part of the little things you don’t notice unless you stroll through each area,” Amos said. sports@vicnews.com

Senior abuse hotline expanded

the

■ TOM FLETCHER/NEWS STAFF

The B.C. government announced a $1 million boost to its seniors’ abuse protection programs, including extending the hours for a hotline to report suspicions of abuse or neglect. The bulk of the funding is to allow the Vancouver-based Seniors Abuse and Information Line to extend its hours to 12 hours a day, seven days a week. It offers information, advice and emotional support for seniors and their friends and relatives who suspect elderly people are being abused or taken advantage of. The toll-free provincewide number is 1-866-437-1940.

Saanich councillor and former MLA Susan Brice, a volunteer with the seniors’ support organization Silver Threads, said members see cases of abuse frequently. “It’s the elderly woman who comes to her craft class with unexplained bruises,” Brice said. “It’s the couple who lose thousands of dollars through a telemarketing scam. And it’s the quietspeaking gentleman, who while living with family, appears neglected and uncared for.” Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan said he has encountered abuse and exploitation of seniors in his own

BIG

family, and the topic comes up frequently as he has travelled B.C. asking seniors and their caregivers what they need from government. Sultan acknowledged that the funding is a modest effort to bolster volunteer efforts. “It is a beginning step, but it also reflects the fact that this problem cannot be solved top-down,” Sultan said. “It will have to be

Age 68

Diana Dampsy, 65, retired in 2010 and moved to Victoria. She needed outlets for her energy and was fortunate to meet up with a friend who introduced her to the Help Fill A Dream Foundation. The foundation’s efforts to help kids with life threatening illnesses appealed to her and she began volunteering to help out. She and her husband moved to Victoria to take advantage of the moderate climate and lush surroundings and have been enjoying year round hiking, biking and golfing, something they were unable to do in Toronto. They have also become involved in the newcomer’s club. ●

Bev Hopkins, 68, has been married 50 years and has spent 38 of those years living in Esquimalt. There is no other place the couple would want to live. Victoria offers beautiful parks, golf courses and shopping, all areas she is interested in. “Now that I am retired I can really enjoy them,” she said. She volunteers for Thrifty’s sendial service, Victoria General Hospital, Esquimalt Buccaneer Days, and others. She is the past president and secretary of the Esquimalt Garden club and still sits on the board as a director and looks after the PR. She loves to walk, read and golf but is most passionate about her garden.   ●

The first pitch of the Victoria HabourCats baseball season is seven weeks away but the new West Coast League team is still in need of a home for some of its players. The team is looking to billet 27 players, give or take one or two, but only 12 are billeted so far. “We’re looking for some welcoming homes,” said Karen Russell, who is handling the billeting for the HarbourCats. “It’s a great experience for young families especially, a chance to meet a driven young man from the U.S., and help him out,” Russell said. All of the HarbourCats coming into town are from U.S. NCAA and collegiate teams. “We’re really impressed with their eagerness, and we’re really excited help them take the next step in their baseball careers.” Players are 19 to 22 years old, are here for 10 weeks from May through July and are on the road for 55 per cent of the season. Contact Russell at karen@harbourcats.com or by phone at 250-704-6718. sports@vicnews.com

Cory Conway is coming home to the Victoria Shamrocks. The pride of Brentwood Bay helped the junior A Shamrocks to the Minto Cup final in 2008 and was drafted in the first round by the Coquitlam Adanacs in 2009 before the senior Shamrocks could grab him. Since then, Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch has watched Conway graduate from being a star in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League to a star in the Western Lacrosse Association. “Over the years we’ve seen first hand, and felt the pain playing against him, of a what a great player Conway truly is,” Welch said. “It’s going to be a lot nicer having him on the team than having him play against us.”

Conway was acquired in a trade with the Nanaimo Timbermen on Wednesday, as the Timbermen continues its rebuild. In exchange for Conway, the Shamrocks sent its first- and t h i rd - ro u n d picks in the 2015 WLA Draft. Nanaimo also gets Victoria’s second round draft choice in the 2015 WLA Draft, as part of the Scott Ranger deal in February. The Shamrocks have now procured two of the Timbermen’s key strikers on offence, having acquired Ranger, the reigning WLA scoring leader and former captain of the Timbermen. “We think this move fits two big goals. One is to compete for a Mann Cup and get another banner or two in Bear Mountain Arena. It also works towards the other goal of expanding the local core, as many South Island guys

Cory Conway has 30 assists in 13 games with the Edmonton Rush in the NLL this season. as we can who can compete at this level.” Conway’s inclusion on the Shamrocks means the group of elite players produced in Victoria who are playing elsewhere just got smaller. Prominent on that list are Lewis Ratcliff (Langley Thunder), Cayle Ratcliff (Timbermen), Ryan Ward (National Lacrosse League) and Rhys Duch (NLL, Major field Lacrosse League) and blue chip prospect Cody Bremner (Timbermen). “Conway is one of the top playmakers in our game. He’s led the league in assists the last few

years and is an elite player, no question,” Welch said. Conway is in his sixth season in the NLL with the Edmonton Rush, where he plays with fellow Shamrocks attacker Corey Small. “(Conway) sees things nobody else can see, his cross floor passes are as good as anyone’s in the sport,” Welch said. “Small and Conway are roommates on the Rush and they have chemistry on the floor. Conway feeds the opposite side better than anyone in the game and Small is on that opposite side, I look forward to seeing the chemistry

develop here.” “It’s tough to put into words. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to play for the team I grew up cheering for. It’s a dream come true,” Conway said in the team’s release. “I’m excited to wear the green and white again, plus this team is scary deep. I think this group has the potential to accomplish something truly special.” The Shamrocks season opens with a tailgate party at Bear Mountain Arena prior to the May 17 game at 7:45 p.m. sports@vicnews.com

Shanice Marcelle, Canada West Female Athlete of the Year.

Saanich athlete named Canada West top athlete

Former Saanich resident Shanice Marcelle of the UBC Thunderbirds was named the top overall athlete in the Canada West conference university athletics. It’s the second time the volleyball star has been named the Canada West Female Athlete of the Year, having won it in 2011. Marcelle, a Spectrum Community school grad, recently ended her career with UBC by winning a fifth straight Canadian Interuniversity Sport volleyball championship, and was named the CIS female volleyball player of the year, which she also won in 2011. She is now shortlisted for the CIS overall athlete of the year award, which will be named at the 21st annual Borden Ladner Gervais (national law firm) Awards on Monday, April 29, in Toronto. If she wins, Marcelle will receive a $10,000 post-graduate scholarship. All finalists are provided a commemorative gold ring. Former Thunderbirds field hockey player Robyn Pendelton, a Vic High grad, was the Canada West Female Athlete or the Year in 2012. sports@vicnews.com

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.

It’s so easy to get started… call

Driving under the influence of age UVic research seeks to keep seniors safe on the road, and help them know when to quit driving Edward Hill News staff

Edward Hill/News staff

Not much stops Tony Embelton from hitting the road in his roomy Toyota Avalon. The 91-year-old cruises to Cordova Bay to visit friends, to church or other social events around Greater Victoria, day or night. In terms of an older driver, Embelton is a bit of an anomaly. With 70 years behind the wheel, the retired school principal prides himself on being a careful, steady motorist who isn’t intimidated by heavy traffic, aggressive drivers or bad weather – unlike many of his peers. “I enjoy driving. I always have,” Embelton said. “Although I didn’t start driving until late, until I was in the army (in 1943). My parents didn’t have a car.” Embelton is one of 125 senior-aged volunteers in Victoria, and 928 in Canada, participating in Candrive, a study that is taking a deep and detailed look at how to improve driving safety and quality of life for seniors. Associated with the Centre on Aging and based out of the Candrive office at the University of Victoria, the Capital Region is among seven cities in the five-year program and a prime recruiting ground due to its large population of older residents. Participants go through a battery of cognitive, reflex and perception tests, and volunteer information on their health and well-being. Their cars are rigged with a GPS and a memory card to record data on driving habits. “Part of the questions they ask here is: do you drive at night? Or in the rain? I won-

Tony Embelton, 91, visits UVic researcher Phyllis McGee every four months as part of a nationwide study that aims to find ways of making driving safer for seniors. Embelton continues to drive daily, but many of his age-group peers restrict their driving due to weather, traffic or daylight. Some have abandoned driving altogether. der why they ask that,” Embelton said at the Candrive office. “If you are careful on the road, what difference does it make?” For many of the seniors in the Candrive study, being careful doesn’t cut it anymore. At least 40 per cent have restricted their own driving, with the majority opting to not drive in bad weather, at night or in heavy traffic. Many simply feel unsafe on the road, have failing eyesight or have experienced “near misses.” Some have been advised by family or their doctor to not drive. “There is a perception in the community that older drivers aren’t changing and there should be more regulations. We are seeing that people are becoming more mindful and choosing to keep safe, and limit when and where they drive,” said Holly Tuokko, the director of the UVic Centre on Aging and lead on one of the substudies for Candrive. Tuokko’s research is digging into the process behind why seniors self-restrict or abandon driving. Her work could help inform government policy around senior drivers, and help drivers decide when they should opt to stay off the road. “People don’t just decide one day to stop driving. There is a process,” she said. “We’re looking to see if it’s the case that people are aware of changes, and then make their own choice to take themselves off the road if they don’t feel safe.”

Although male drivers between 16 and 25 by far cause the most mayhem on B.C. roads, ICBC stats show that older drivers may drive less, but per kilometre driven, they tend to crash at rates similar to young people. And for that older demographic, crashes are more likely to be fatal, or lead to broken bones and a long recovery. “We want to keep people on the road for as long as possible, but safely,” Tuokko said. “The crash rate (for seniors) is not high, but when they occur it can be quite damaging.” A broader goal of Candrive is to develop a tool for doctors to assess if their patients should keep driving, or if there is a high likelihood of a crash. This tool will be developed out of the many tests given to volunteers at the seven Candrive sites. “We hope to see which assessment tests correlate with safe and unsafe drivers,” said Phyllis McGee, the co-ordinator for Candrive at UVic. McGee’s office floor is covered in taped lines and markers on the walls to help with the three hours of physical tests and questionnaires for volunteers. During 200910, 125 seniors between age 70 and 89 funneled through her office, and the vast majority have returned every four months. “A handful of 89-year-olds signed up for a five-year drive study,” McGee said. “It’s a great example of optimism. And they’re

still in the study and still driving.” Participants in Victoria have tended to stop driving due to health problems – although a few were diagnosed with cancer, had treatment, went into remission and are still driving – while others had bad falls and broke bones. For the most part, local participants have cruised around without incident. “We’ve had crashes but not as many as expected. It’s encouraging,” McGee said. “(Seniors) are less likely to do high-risk behaviour like speeding, although a few have got speeding tickets.” Embelton said having a police officer for a father and a career as an educator made him a disciplined motorist. Driving, he observed, is more about fitness than age. “It’s not about age at all, it’s about if you are well enough and strong enough … it’s about general health,” he said. “I’m lucky that I’m as well as I am for my age.” Although not indicative of his driving record (one speeding ticket decades ago), Embelton admitted he hit a deer that leapt in front of him while driving in a line of traffic through Mount Douglas Park. The timing could have been better. “There was fur stuck to the car when you came to see me,” McGee deadpanned as he spoke to Embelton. “Bit of evidence there.” editor@saanichnews.com

Find “sailboats on trailers, dinghies, kayaks, engines – anything to do with boating,” says volunteer and sale coordinator Ann Jones. “We even get cutlery and china.” The annual fundraiser’s primary goal is to raise money for the museum’s programs and exhibits, and the sale has become something of a “staple in the boaters’ world,” Jones says. At this year’s sale, a Pixie Fairey Marine folding boat will be for sale through a silent auction. These little wooden boats were made in England in the 1950s and ‘60s. A neat feature, the Pixie comes apart for storage on deck and can easily be put back together. It also comes with two removable seats and paddles. The 10-foot hull is hot molded and is in great condition. Supported by the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, Western Stevedoring – Ogden Point, CFB Esquimalt and Trotac Marine, admission to the Massive Marine Garage Sale, in the warehouse building on Pier A at Ogden Point, is $5 (children under 12 are free) and parking is free.

Detroit Electric unveils SP:01 Car sets the new benchmark for electric vehicle performance and handling METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Emissions-free motoring has a new high-performance champion following the unveiling of the Detroit Electric SP:01, a limited edition, two-seat pure-electric sports car that sets new standards for performance and handling in the electric vehicle segment. Boasting an impressive 155 mph (249 km/h) top speed and covering the 0-100 km/h sprint in a blistering 3.7 seconds, the SP:01 is the world’s fastest pure-electric production car. The new SP:01 was launched under the brand’s mantra of ‘Pure Electric Excitement’ and was revealed at Detroit Electric’s new headquarters in the Fisher

Building in downtown Detroit. Some 999 examples will be built at Detroit Electric’s new production facility in Wayne County, Michigan, with cars sold worldwide through a network of specialist retail partners. The SP:01’s exceptional performance is owed in large part to its excellent power-to-weight ratio. The rear-wheel-drive SP:01 features a compact, mid-mounted 201 hp electric motor (delivering 166 lb ft of torque), a lightweight, purpose-designed battery pack and all-new carbon-fibre bodywork. Total weight is just 2,354 lb, contributing to the SP:01’s superior driving dynamics and class-leading handling.
