Campbell River runner escapes Boston Marathon explosion KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A Campbell River teacher running in the Boston Marathon is safe after explosions rocked the historic race Monday. Sandra Milligan, a biology instructor at North Island College and director of the Aquatic SeaLife Society working to bring a public aquarium to Campbell River, said she and her family are all okay after missing the exploSandra Milligan sion by minutes. “The bombs went off about 30 minutes after I crossed the finish line so none of us saw the actual event but heard the bombs and all the subsequent chaos,” Milligan, 46, said. “My parents and daughter were about one kilometre before the finish line with many other spectators (before the explosions).” Milligan was gingerly walking back from the finish line towards an apartment where she was staying with her family, about one kilometre from the Continued on A4

Meet your North Island candidates

A3 A3

As of Tuesday, three in the running for MLA PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

With the BC Liberals trailing the New Democrats by double digits in the polls, North Island candidate Nick Facey faces a tough battle. That’s why he’s been vigorously campaigning against NDP incumbent Claire Trevena for more than a month. But the real campaigning began Tuesday with three candidates vying for North Island MLA in the May 14 provincial election. The third is Bob Bray for the BC Conservative Party. Trevena, the region’s MLA since 2005, is the front-runner. The latest public opinion polls (Angus Reid and Ipso Reid) show the NDP leading the Liberals by about 20 points with an approval rate ranging from 48-51 per cent, with the Liberals trailing at 28-32 per cent. The Conservatives are far back along with the BC Green Party which has yet to announce a candidate for the North Island region. The Greens are running a candidate in the Comox Valley. In the coming weeks, the Mirror will follow their

campaigns and question the candidates on the issues. Today though, let’s meet the candidates:

Claire Trevena, NDP incumbent The 50-year-old Quadra Island resident was first elected in 2005 and reelected in 2009. In the early 1990s Trevena was the BBC’s Canadian correspondent and later was employed by the CBC. Subsequently, she worked overseas on democratic development projects for which she was awarded the Canada Peacekeeping Medal.

And prior to the 2005 election, Trevena ran a small communications business with her husband Mike McIvor. She has served as the NDP’s critic for children and family development, women’s issues, employment and income assistance, and also served as a Deputy Speaker of the House. In 2007, Trevena was instrumental in delivering a 19,000-name petition to the Legislature which supported hospitals in both Campbell River and the Comox Valley. Last year, the province, in partnership with the Comox-Strathcona Hospital Board, announced the building of two new hospitals in both communities at a cost of $600.

finish line, when she started to hear sirens. “At one intersection, a couple walked past and the woman was quite hysterical,” Milligan said. “As I continued along I saw people just standing around in small groups, looking bewildered. “I stopped at one group and asked if something had happened and they said that two bombs went off at the finish line and spectators were badly hurt. “Of course I was very concerned for my family and tried to speed up the remaining two blocks. I was very happy to see my daughter in the window, and she seemed equally happy to see me, as they heard the bombs, had the news on the television, and were very concerned.” Milligan’s 14-year-old daughter Maeve was with her grandparents who came from Ontario to watch their daughter race when pandemonium set in. “We returned from the race leisurely, having no information concerning the bombs,” Maeve said. “A man came sprinting past, practically dragging his young daughter behind him. She was crying and asking where her mommy was while he screamed into the phone.” Maeve heard the man yelling that he had heard bombs at the finish line, which prompted Maeve and her par-

a goal for which I have worked for month,” Milligan said. “Today I am very conflicted, as a smile will appear and immediately I feel awful. “I am very saddened by this terrible event, particularly after enjoying the amazing hospitality of the people of Boston over the last few days,” Milligan added. “The spectators embrace and encourage the runners along the entire race course. I feel so sad that this enjoyment may be forever tainted. “This event, and large marathons and sporting events in general, will never be the same.” The Boston Marathon has been held on the U.S. national holiday, Patriots Day, since 1897. The race begins in Hopkinton, Massachusetts and wraps up at Boston’s Copley Square. Around 20,000 people participate in the 42.19 kilometre marathon each year. The day before the race, in a Facebook post, Milligan expressed her excitement for the marathon. “In Boston, with 26,999 other runners ready to run 42.2 km tomorrow,” Milligan said. “Feeling like the wave of human emotion in that crowd will just carry me along. Maybe the first time the new River Runners shirts will be in Boston.” At press time, it was not known who planned and carried out the explosions at the Boston Marathon and police had not determined a motive for the attack.

The blast happened more than five hours after the start of the race and about one and a half hours after the first runners crossed the finish line, when most of the top runners were finished but slower and amateur runners were still on the course. Maeve described the scene after the explosions as eerily quiet. “The roads that were bustling became those of a ghost town,” she recounted. “Few cars or people walk by and those who do are in a hurried rush. The subways have shut down and buses, as well as airport flights have been delayed. Having dinner out isn’t a very pleasant idea, as a terror has carpeted the streets of Boston.” Milligan, who is a member of the River Runners club, said the tragic event has dampened her spirits and left a black mark on her accomplishment. “Personally, after completing a sporting event like this I usually had a ‘perm-grin’ – happy, satisfied and emotional about accomplishing

RD to look at selling Strathcona Gardens KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Campbell River councillors say every attempt by the city to try and coordinate recreational programs with the Strathcona Regional District in order to save taxpayers money has been thwarted and now regional directors want to look at selling Strathcona Gardens. Director and city councillor Claire Moglove said at last week’s regional district board meeting that often recreation programs offered at city facilities can also be found at Strathcona Gardens. “There is duplicity of service, there is duplicity of programs,” Moglove said. “We, the City of Campbell River, are trying the best we can to have a regional function so that everyone would benefit and in my view the city has been stymied at every step along the way.” The city asked the regional district last year to participate in a joint review of recreational services to determine if there is a way to better co-ordinate programs and activities. But the regional district balked, with electoral directors refusing to pay the money for what it viewed as the city trying

to get a better hold on its recreational facilities and programs. Director Walter Jakeway, and city mayor, suggested the regional district consider selling Strathcona Gardens to the city after lengthy discussions during financial planning over a human resource position at Strathcona Gardens, which the Strathcona Gardens Commission (which runs the complex) did not want but others on the regional district board did. “After listening to all the anguish the board was going through over the last several months about money to fix the arena floor, the HR position, and such, I thought to maybe look at selling Strathcona Gardens would offload a lot of money and anguish for the regional district,” Jakeway said. “The city could use its horse power to modernize it. It needs a facelift and I doubt the regional district is able to afford that, where the city could probably do it through grants.” That raised the ire of Brenda Leigh, director for Area D which has helped fund Strathcona Gardens and will be contributing $515,000 of a $3.4 million budget in 2013. “Strathcona Gardens is one of the best run organizations in the region…

there is no anguish going on,” Leigh said. “The only anguish going on is an employee phoning me saying there’s rumours going around that the regional district is going to abandon them. I don’t think the city’s thinking clearly by how much they benefit by having Strathcona Gardens as a regional facility and how much they benefit by Area D’s contribution to that facility.” Moglove agreed the city would miss Area D’s contribution and said that while she understood where Jakeway was coming from, she would prefer to see the facility further expanded as a regional service. “I think Director Jakeway, because of the length of time it’s taken to get anything going, said ‘okay, let’s buy it and see what happens,’” Moglove said. “Only three things can happen – let’s leave it as it is, the city buys it or the Strathcona Regional District contracts it out to the city. I think we need a report (from staff). I’m not personally in favour of the city buying Strathcona Gardens but we need to do something.” Directors John MacDonald (Sayward) and Gerald Whalley (Kyuquot-Sayward) were in favour of selling Strathcona Gardens

to the city, as both represent areas detached from Strathcona Gardens. But Whalley said that is changing as the Strathcona Gardens Human Resource position is being funded from the regional district’s administration budget and not the Strathcona Gardens budget, much to his dismay. “Now that Area A, with every other director at this table, is paying for the HR position, I become a participant and I don’t want to become a participant,” Whalley said. “Director Jakeway’s report shows me how I can get out of this.” In the end the board voted in favour of a report from regional district staff investigating the feasibility, costs, and implications of having the city purchase Strathcona Gardens. Directors Jim Abram, Noba Anderson, Craig Anderson, Ryan Mennie, and Leigh were opposed to Jakeway’s motion for a report.

Spirit Square money clarified KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city has released an informational report on Spirit Square after public outcry over the city’s use of funding. When the SPCA left Campbell River because the city awarded its animal control contract to a lower bidder to save money, several SPCA supporters took to Facebook to criticize the city for spending money on Spirit Square. Now the city

is clarifying why a glass roof was being put on the downtown gathering place at the same time the SPCA was packing up and vacating the old animal shelter. “The stage shelter project is funded by $60,000 in surplus funds from the original project,” reads a report on the city’s website. “This funding cannot be reallocated to a project other than Spirit Square.” But that was not originally made clear to the public, as was evident on the Mirror’s Facebook page.

One reader posts “Did we ask for a cover, costing $60,000, over the stage at Spirit Square? I think not. This money could have gone to the SPCA instead.” The cover was considered by the city after organizers were forced to drape temporary tarps over the stage during poor weather. Spirit Square opened on November 2, 2009 just in time for the Olympic Torch Relay. The square was built downtown for $1.7 million.

Brenda Leigh, director for Area D, said MSP coverage is necessary as soon as salaries increase. “There are reasons why MSP premiums were likely not offered to directors in the past because my remuneration is below the poverty line and below the basic requirement for paying premiums,” Leigh said at last week’s regional board meeting. “If you’re below $22,000 (a year) you can apply for basic premium assistance so there was no need. But if our salaries are going up a little, we’ll have to pay.” Electoral directors’ salaries, which included Leigh, are going up from $20,699 to $31,128 retroactive to 2012 while municipal directors’ salaries will increase from $10,372 to $12,072 effective in 2015. The chair’s $33,145 addition to his regular directors’ pay will decrease to $19,872 but not until Jan. 1, 2014. For those with an annual income of $30,000 or more, MSP monthly charges are:

$66.50 for one person, $120.50 for a family of two and $133 for a family of three or more.

Emergency program dissolved Strathcona Regional District directors officially dissolved the emergency grant-in-aid program which provided grants to emergency groups for emergency supplies. The program was once designed for all regional areas to get involved, but Areas A, C, and D recently opted out, which left Campbell River and Cortes Island left to foot the bill. That prompted Campbell River to leave the program in February, and Cortes director Noba Anderson reluctantly chose to pull the plug on the program last month. “Other rural areas have opted out,” Anderson said. “I’m not interested in this just being a Cortes service. I think there is value in this being a regional service. I guess I would suggest that the service as presented be dissolved, much to my disappointment.” Brenda Leigh, director for Area D, said the regional district will save money by ending the program and ensured emergency programs will still have access to regional district grants. “We’re not abandoning Search and Rescue, we’ll still be supplying them with a grant-in-aid,” Leigh said.

KRISTEN DOUGLAS/THE MIRROR

A convicted drug dealer may lose $15,000 bail. Cu o n g Lu o n g , 5 2 , appeared in provincial court Monday where he pleaded guilty to two counts of trafficking and one count of breaching a bail order. They were his third and fourth convictions from selling drugs. Luong, who’s been in custody since March 14, was sentenced to another 17 months jail and he may lose a lot more than his freedom. Federal Crown prosecutor Paul Corbett also wants Luong to forfeit the $15,000 bail posted last year, when he was first busted by Campbell River Mounties. On May 16, 2012, RCMP were following up on a tip about a Vietnamese man delivering drugs to someone nicknamed “Tiny” at a trailer park in North Campbell River. Officers followed as Luong’s vehicle pulled up to the residence. When Luong spotted police, he ran into the trailer and tossed aside

The machine was made possible by a generous donation from a slopitch tournament organized by the Crosses.

logging road. There he was spotted making a transaction with a Caucasian man. No arrests were made, but on March 14, police again followed Luong to the same spot. This time he was arrested and found in possession of heroin, crack cocaine, powdered cocaine, and two cell phones. At the same time, RCMP were executing a bust at Luong’s residence in Campbell River. According to Corbett, no drugs were found at the home, but Mounties did seize $42,000. Luong’s spouse, Thi Ngo, was arrested at the scene and is charged with breach of a court order. She is free on bail and due back in court on April 22. A judge will determine at a future hearing whether or not Luong forfeits his bail money. However, at Monday’s sentencing, Judge Brian Saunderson ordered the forfeiture of Luong’s older model truck, the cash seized in the 2012 bust, drugs and other paraphernalia.

a baggy and a cell phone. The baggie contained 17 “spitballs” (i.e. individual hits) of heroin, 11 of crack cocaine and three of powdered cocaine. Also seized from Luong was $1,070 in Canadian currency and $262 in American cash. Police also noted at least two calls and several text messages coming in on the cell phone, asking to buy drugs. Luong was arrested and later released on $15,000 bail. He was also ordered to not have more than two cell phones in his possession. The large amount for bail was partly due to the fact that Luong has two previous convictions, in 1996 and 2001, for dealing drugs as well as a 1995 conviction for simple possession. In January, Luong was being tried on the 2012 trafficking charge when the trial was delayed. Later, police received word that Luong may be up to his old tricks. On March 8, Mounties observed Luong driving his grey 1992 Toyota 4x4 out to the Duncan Bay Main

Our View

Don’t snooze through the election The 2013 provincial election will be one of the most important in a generation. At a time when the economy appears to be in slow motion, yet demands on the public purse are increasing, voters need to pay attention to who’s running. We say: We Of course, we say this for every election — to no avail. Last time around, in the must hold our 2009 provincial election, only about 50% of politicians voters bothered to cast a vote. accountable Who is to blame and will things be any different this year? It’s hard to say. Is it negative advertising that turns people off? BC NDP leader Adrian Dix says so and has promised a more

positive campaign. But will that end indifference or will people turn away from boredom. Is it helplessness and apathy that keep people away from the polls? Many people simply don’t connect with government. BC Liberal leader Christy Clark has tried to be a populist (pandering?) premier, appealing to the hockey mom vote, but has failed to attract women’s support, pundits say. Why? Perhaps B.C. voters simply distrust anything politicians say. Clearly there is a disconnect and the media may have contributed to this malaise by blowing every little incident out of proportion. As in the story of the boy who cried wolf, many voters simply tune out after a while, yet, sadly, when there is a real issue

many eligible voters simply don’t see the connection between their vote and government policy. Instead, they leave the field to special interest groups — business, unions, lobbyists — to hijack the results. The truth is that politicians will only be accountable if we hold them accountable. We have a right to toss any of them out if they don’t do what they promised so voters need to pay attention to what politicians say and they need to find out who they are. Over the next few weeks, the Campbell River Mirror will be covering this region’s four ridings with information from our local candidates. The rest is up to you. – Black Press

Ensure clean food I am a consumer, mother and grandmother and I deeply value my right to have access to clean food. I am passionate about this beautiful planet I call home and I am committed, heart and soul to doing what I can to ensure that I leave her healthy and whole so that the generations that follow will continue to benefit from the bounty she has to offer. So yes, I am very emotional about clean food! As a parent and grandparent, I am concerned that there is not a single long-term study of the health impacts of GMO?s and Monsanto or other Bio Tech giants funded the studies available. This seems highly suspect to me. How can we suggest that there is no long-term health impact when there is no long-term study to verify this. The concern is that the novel proteins produced in GMOs are like nothing our bodies have ever seen. There is the potential for allergic reactions and long term responses like kidney and liver issues as our bodies try to detoxify these alien proteins. It also worries me that the same agency that mandates certified organic farmers produce only non-genetically modified product is poised to approve the sale of GE Alfalfa in Canada. This will make it virtually impossible for many organic farmers to remain organic. Unlike other GE crops, Alfalfa is a perennial crop that is pollinated by bees. There is no way to prevent organic alfalfa from Continued on A9

Don’t count B.C. Conservatives out this election

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

As the B.C. NDP launched its election campaign last week with a package of income tax hikes, higher than those in the B.C. Liberals’ election budget of February, a third party leader confirmed his own plan to increase personal and business income tax rates. It’s not readily apparent from his recently released ‚fiscal framework document, but B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins told me his plan to phase out B.C.‚‘s carbon tax does indeed include raising income tax rates that were lowered to make the carbon tax “revenue neutral.” I reached Cummins in Prince George, where he was continuing his aggressive courtship of northern B.C. with an announcement that federal gas tax revenues would be redirected to a new fund for locally determined road improvements. Earlier he vowed to study the deplorable state of north-

ern ambulance service. Cummins has more good news for the north: that’s where a regionally phased elimination of the carbon tax would begin. It’s also the area of thinnest population, meaning the impact on the B.C. treasury would be less. This, after all, a tax budgeted to bring in $1.2 billion in the current year. The B.C. Conservatives continually remind people that the carbon tax falls disproportionately on rural, remote and particularly northern folks who face long distances, long winters, and public transit options ranging from slim to none. This has ceased to be much of an issue for the urban B.C. majority, who are focused on bridge tolls, ferry fares and the like. The B.C. Conservatives decry the population decline of rural B.C., with international immigration almost exclusively going to

big cities, while temporary foreign workers increasingly fill agricultural and industrial jobs in the Interior. The party’s still-evolving platform echoes the NDP’s call for more skills training and increased completion rates for trade apprentices. Cummins is in favour of the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline and the massive buildup of infrastructure needed to add liquefied natural gas to B.C.‚‘s energy export mix. He sees that enormous industrial expansion as the path to shift population growth beyond the south of the province. Cummins is surprisingly cool to one industrial project, the proposed Site C dam on the Peace River, calling himself undecided. He also sounds skeptical about the B.C. Liberal plan to extend B.C.‚‘s electricity grid and use that to develop further independent power. This sounds to me like political position-

ing rather than economic analysis. An antiSite C independent candidate has significant support in Peace River North, creating a three-way struggle for a key B.C. Conservative target The B.C. Conservative platform also totals up the billions in long-term electricity contracts with private power producers and¬†suggests¬†the price for this clean energy has been set too high. This is another echo of the NDP’s vague position. So if the B.C. Conservatives are gung-ho on oil and gas and think the carbon tax is¬†a mistake, do they think there should be any effort to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions? Cummins sidestepped that question, preferring to talk about conventional¬†air pollution, whether it’s in the Fraser Valley or as a by-product of a northern industrial boom. Continued on A9


Food: Use my voice

Continued from A8

cross-pollinating with GE alfalfa. Alfalfa is a primary source of feed for dairy and cattle farmers, making it virtually impossible for these farmers to ensure that their product remains certified organic. Nearly one hundred years ago man discovered penicillin. For many decades, we believed that penicillin was a panacea for many of our health concerns. Thirty years ago doctors prescribed antibiotics like candy and we as consumer were thrilled to take them. Mother nature had something else in mind and the result of our over use of antibiotics is a proliferation of antibiotic resistant super bugs. This example should

be a call to use caution when it comes to GMOs. As human beings we may think that we have it figured out, but all to often nature has a different idea. She demonstrated this with antibiotics and she is beginning to demonstrate this with the advent of herbicide resistant weeds and pesticide resistant insects. I am heartened to note that in British Columbia there are already 13 jurisdictions that have resolved to be GE free zones. I am also thrilled to see that in many of those jurisdictions the needs of non-organic farmers are supported. The AVICC (Association of Vancouver Island Coastal Communities) met April 13th and agreed to ask the Minister

of Agriculture for BC to put forward a resolution to make Vancouver Island a GE free zone. It is incredible to see that so many of our local leaders are ready to take their place on the right side of history. As a passionate consumer, I whole-heartedly support them. This letter is about standing for a clean, organic and non-genetically engineered food supply. As a consumer, I continue to invest my food dollar with local, organic farmers whenever possible and I use my voice to ensure that my right to have access to clean food is maintained now and into the future for generations to come.

Airport lighting to get $1.3 million upgrade

Airfield lighting and electrical systems at the Campbell River Airport will be improved thanks to a grant worth more than $1.3 million from Transport Canada. The total estimated cost of the project is $1,401.044, and Transport Canada will fund $1,331,002 (95 per cent of the cost), with the City funding the remaining upgrade from its Airport Improvement Fee. The improvement work will ensure the airfield lighting system meets current regulatory requirements. Upgrades will focus on: apron and taxiway lighting as well as runway edge lighting circuits and respacing these lights. Aging airfield lighting components will also be replaced and new airfield electrical regulators and lighting control system as well as new runway guard lights will be installed – all to Canadian Aviation Regulations standards. “Replacing aging electrical infrastructure will help more planes safely take off from the Campbell River Airport in reduced visibility conditions and ensure seamless commercial and general aviation operations in all weather conditions,” says Susan Sinnott of the Campbell River Airport Authority. “These improvements are another step in making the Campbell River Airport attractive to new customers and business investors.” Companies interested in bidding on this project should stay tuned for a request for proposals later.

It’s easy but… There is a lot of information right at your ngertips but how reliable is it? Key your investment-related question into a search engine and just look at all the websites you have to choose from. You have to sort through a hodgepodge of unltered, unveried sources. That can not only be a lengthy and frustrating process, it can also lead you to plenty of poorly researched or incorrect

information and a risk you may make decisions based on false evidence or ideas that are not in the best interest of you and your family. It’s one-size-ts-all It can be tough to tell if the information you’ve sourced is correct or not but even if it is, you can be certain the advice was not customized for you. You’re getting information that may not reect your personal lifestyle and goals or the changes that take place in all of the unique facets of your life over time. Even if you manage to hit on reliable Internet information, how can you tell that it’s right for your specic circumstances?

Question: I’ve recently been diagnosed with uncontrolled diabetes and my doctor suggested I see my dentist. Why?

Answer: Diabetes affects many Canadians each year ~ it can lower your resistance to infection & can slow the healing process. The most common oral health problems associated Dr. Kevin Lathangue with diabetes are tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease which leads to tooth loss. When diabetes is not controlled properly, high sugar levels in saliva may help bacteria thrive. Plaque that is not removed can eventually harden (calcify) into calculus. When calculus collects above the gumline, it cannot be removed by brushing. This can create conditions that lead to chronic inflammation and infection in the mouth. Periodontal disease often is linked to the control of diabetes. For example, patients with inadequate blood sugar control appear to develop periodontal disease more often and more severely, and they lose more teeth than do people who have good control of their diabetes. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, cleaning once a day between your teeth with floss and seeing your dentist regularly for an exam will help you to maintain your overall health.

Big Rock beaver is alive and well in rehab WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2013

“Busy as a beaver” certainly describes these industrious animals that are Canada’s national animal emblem. Next to capybaras, beavers are the largest semiaquatic rodents in the world. These animals are found across Canada and America with the exception of Florida and parts of southern California. Hunted and trapped for their luxurious fur, beavers were almost hunted to extinction in the 1700s to meet the demands of the European fashion market. Easily recognizable with their large flat tails and protruding front teeth, their dense brown fur is maintained with waterproofing oil allowing them to spend most of their time submerged under water. Other adaptations that allow them to dive include loose lips which can be pulled together making their mouths waterproof, together with transparent eyelids which act as goggles under water. Beaver’s hind feet are clawed and webbed resembling flippers, their front legs have fingers and claws that they use to hold food or strip the bark off wood. The most important and recognizable feature is the beaver tail, this paddle shaped tail acts as a rudder to steer them through the water whilst swimming but is also used to warn other beavers of danger when

More trees, promise NDP TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

NDP leader Adrian Dix released his party’s forestry platform in Prince George Monday, including a pledge to double the number of trees planted on Crown land. Dix also promised to increase spending on forest inventory research and establish a “jobs protection

commissioner” to manage the reduction in timber supply that is expected across Interior areas depleted by beetle infestation. The five-point plan promises action to reduce the export of logs from B.C., but as in the party’s 2009 election platform, the party offers no specifics. The NDP promises only to “work with stakeholders to reduce raw log exports and

create more value-added forestry jobs.” Dix said if the NDP form a government, forest spending will increase by $30 million in the first year, with further increases up to $100 million beyond current spending over five years. NDP critics have focused on B.C. Liberal budget cuts to forest management, as the government merged natural resource operations

into a single ministry. Forests Minister Steve Thomson called the NDP announcement a “photo op” that provided little new about the NDP’s plans. In January, Thomson announced a 20 per cent increase in the export fee for logs from southern Vancouver Island and the adjacent south coast. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald said at the

time the increase was too small to make a difference as Asian buyers bid up the price of B.C. logs, but he offered no alternative. Dix said the federal and provincial governments have done a good job increasing lumber exports to China, and as premier he would continue the trade missions and marketing efforts that have led to the growth.

campaign event in Vancouver, challenging NDP leader Adrian Dix to do the same and to participate in a oneon-one debate on the different visions for the province. The B.C. Liberals’ personal tax freeze does not extend to income above $150,000, which was subject to a 2.1 per cent increase in the government’s February budget. That increase was budgeted to last only two years before returning to the current 14.7 per cent rate. The NDP has proposed to raise the rate on income above $150,000 a year to 19 per cent, permanently.

The B.C. Liberals had earlier planned to eliminate income tax for small businesses with annual revenues of $500,000 or less. But faced with deficits after the 2008-09 financial crisis and the rejection of the harmonized sales tax, the government decided in 2012 to hold the small business tax rate at 2.5 per cent until the province’s financial picture improved. The party’s new plan is more modest, trimming the small business rate by half a point in 2015 and another half point by 2017. The B.C. Liberal platform leans heavily on long-term

debt repayment for government, BC Ferries and BC Hydro using liquefied natural gas export revenues. Clark said a conservative scenario of two large LNG export facilities and three smaller ones could provide enough revenue to pay off the province’s debt in 15 years. “The NDP’s fiscal plan is a plan to kill liquefied natural gas,” Clark said. NDP MLA Carole James rejected that claim, saying the party has endorsed LNG exports. “LNG revenue is an opportunity, but it’s not going to solve all of our

challenges,” James said. The NDP has decided on a staged release of policies, which started in Prince George Monday with promises for new investment in reforestation. Other highlights of the B.C. Liberal platform include: ■ $3 million a year to upgrade rest stops and visitor centres around B.C. ■ A B.C. film promotion office in Los Angeles. ■ Funds to develop an aerospace and defence contractor industry. ■ A five-year freeze of the carbon tax, previously announced.

B.C. Liberals vow to freeze income tax Also pledge to lower small biz tax TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

Horrors! Little Shop opens tomorrow It’s Spring Musical time at Carihi again, and a maneating plant has taken over the theatre! This year’s show Little Shop of Horrors promises to be the best one yet. The show tells the story of Seymour Krelborn who works in a down and out florist shop on Skid Row. His luck changes when he discovers a “strange and unusual plant” that helps him achieve everything he’s ever wanted, including the love of his co-worker Audrey. The talented group of students at Carihi is very excited about opening night, including Michael Bernard, who plays Seymour Krelborn. “I love this show,” says Bernard. “It’s unlike anything I have ever worked on and everyone is really committed to doing a great show. I think audiences will really enjoy it.” Director Christine Knight agrees. “I was able to fond amazing people to help me this year,” says Knight, “so the dancing is great, the singing is amazing, and the set

looks fantastic.” With Phil Cassidy as musical director, choreography from Heather Gordon Murphy and Lisa Marie

Thomson, Vocal coaching from Amy Lelliot, and set design from John Bailey, you can expect to see a polished show, in all aspects of

the production. The show opens tomorrow and runs until Sunday, April 21. Curtain is at 7 p.m., with matinees on Sat-

Author Jerry Hirsch will read from his recent book 100 Vignettes: the Box of Chocolates Approach to Everyday Life at the Campbell River Library on Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m. This book is a collection of light essays describing everyday life situations and issues, based on his own experiences, or from topics described in the news or the Internet.

Many vignettes are humorous, some are factual, others illustrate his own unique personal biases, and many reflect his practical Christian perspective. This book is a thoughtful and humorous blend of Rick Mercer and the grumpy old men from The Muppets sprinkled with a touch of wisdom. Each page is a thoughtprovoking vignette of our

society with a number of “aha” moments of agreement. ■ Have you ever wondered why Europeans can’t be more like us? ■ Did you know that people who snore may feel like they have leprosy? ■ Are computers male or female? ■ Check out the “ultimate trivia quiz” to see how your brain functions

Jerry Hirsch is retired and lives in Abbotsford, BC. He has a PhD in Pharmacology and worked for many years for Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in Vancouver. This is a free program, and all are welcome. For more information, please call 250-287-3655, or check the Events section of our website at www.virl. bc.ca.

The cast of Carihi’s Little of Shop of Horrors will be experiencing opening night thrills tomorrow when their production of the popular music opens for a run until Sunday.

Exhibit details artist’s double life Come to the Campbell River Art Gallery Thursday, April 25 at 5:30 p.m. to see a performance piece and hear an illustrated artist’s talk at the opening of two new exhibitions. The exhibition, Sara Robichaud: Double Life, is in the Main Gallery and features the work of Nanaimo artist Sara Robichaud. Robichaud’s large scale abstract paintings are full of lush color and a careful manipulation of the acrylic medium. Hard edged, raised lines of paint sweep across the canvases and intersect with more organic shapes to create visually interesting compositions. The repetitive shapes found throughout the exhibition symbolize objects of importance in Robichaud’s life as a mother and wife in a home environment. These shapes, in conjunction with the bold colors and technical excellence in the painterly process, highlight the dual roles the artist plays as family member and professional artist. The opening of this exhibition will include a performance piece and an illustrated artist’s talk about Robichaud’s progression as an artist and the pieces in the show. Also opening on Thursday April 25 in the Discovery Gallery is Albertan artist Audra Schoblocher’s exhibition Etiquette Depiction. Schoblocher’s small metal sculptures bring to mind utensils or tools. They spark questions of purpose, physical movement and historical age. With the physical marks of the artist present on each piece, the metal is transformed from mere medium to a functional tool. Presented in boxes suggesting an archaeological context, or in photographs documenting usage, the sculptures have a narrative quality that invites the viewer to use their imagination. Staff and volunteers at the Campbell River Art Gallery look forward to welcoming the public to view both exhibitions and meet Sara Robichaud at the opening reception Thursday, April 25 at 5:30 p.m. The Campbell River Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Starting Monday, May 20th, the Gallery will revert to summer hours, Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Students talk environmental action Join the city at the upcoming Earth Week Film Festival on Friday, Apr. 19 and help support local students taking environmental action in the community. The a c t i on-packe d event is hosted by the City of Campbell River and School District 72 and will include community booths, student films and the 2012 Compost Video Challenge, which follows six Campbell River families as they compete to reduce their waste and capture video footage that will inspire others to start composting. The evening’s awardwinning feature film Bag it delves into the effects of plastic on human health and the environment – and ways to address the issue. The annual festival brings people together to celebrate Earth Week, creates awareness about environmental issues that are affecting our planet and encourages people to think about how they can make a difference. “I think it’s important for us to become aware of how everyday decisions, like throwing plastic into the garbage, can affect the

environment,” says Nya Harley, Chair of the Youth Action Committee, and a Grade 11 student from Carihi. “Once we are aware, we can become inspired to make change.” “It’s the small actions that add up to make a big difference,” says Manesha Bains, Youth Action Committee member and a Grade 10 student from Carihi, who also competed in the 2012 Compost Video Challenge with

her family. “Some things that I do are recycle, compost and use reusable bags instead of plastic ones.” Bains and Harley are both members of the City’s Youth Action Committee (YAC), which provides a youth perspective for staff and city council on many community issues, including the environment. Every year, the committee helps organize the annual Earth Week Film Festival, and at this year’s festival, they will also be

selling reusable bags to help raise funds for student environmental projects. Come early to visit community booths and learn about composting, recycling and green initiatives in Campbell River. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the film begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, Apr. 19 at the Tidemark Theatre. Admission is by donation, with proceeds going to support student environmental projects.

Each year, the Youth Action Committee determines which projects are supported by the monies raised at the festival. Last year, the donations went to Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, a student environmental bursary for a graduating SD 72 student’s post-secondary education, and the community garden at Robron School. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Tidemark Theatre.

Keith Macadam June 8, 1943April 10, 2013

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Keith Lynwood Macadam. Keith left us after a short but courageous battle with cancer surrounded by

family and friends at home. Keith was predeceased by his parents Gerry and Lillian of C.R. Keith is survived by his loving wife Lois White-Macadam, sisters Linda [Carvil] and Diane[Terry], sons Mark and Wade [Wendy], daughters Penny, Melissa, Melody, Erin, Monica, and stepmom Gloria White. Keith was especially proud of his grandchildren Melissa, Clinton, Virginia, Ariana, Izabella, and Sebastian. Keith was born in Vancouver and grew up in Calgary where his first job was picture framing before becoming an autobody repairman. True happiness for Keith was fishing and camping with family or friends and this is what led Keith to pack up the family and move from Calgary to Campbell River in 1975. As anyone who was here then knows, it truly was the best fishing anywhere, whether in the lakes, rivers or ocean. Keith spent many happy days camping, fishing and gold panning the Oyster River and was fond of his camping trips to Miller Creek with friends. He was very proud to call Campbell River home. To know Keith was to like him, a man of generous heart cracking jokes to the end. A memorial service will take place 1:00 p.m. Saturday April 20, 2013 at Suttons Campbell River Funeral Home to be followed by a Celebration of Life at 1631-20th Ave., Campbell River, immediately afterwards. The family invites all of Keith’s friends to bring a picture and a story if they wish and to join us in this celebration of Keith’s life. Those wishing, donatations in Keith’s memory can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Special thanks to all the friends and home care staff who kept Keith comfortable at home. “Happy Camping�

Five Campbell River mounties were recently recognized for making our roads safer. The local RCMP officers are members of Alexa’s Team, formed in 2008 and which boasts those police officers who are the top impaired driving investigators in the province. The BCAA Road Safety Foundation, ICBC and Alexa Middelaer’s family honoured the five police officers from Campbell River as members of Alexa’s Team in recognition of their diligent efforts. The local officers part of Alexa’s Team are: Cst. Kyle Ushock (Campbell River General Duty), Cst. Mark Blacklock  (Campbell River Municipal Traffic), Cst. David Dormuth (Campbell River Municipal Traffic), Cst. Travis Draper (North Vancouver Island Traffic Services), and Cst. Jason Maclean  (North Vancouver Island Traffic Services). The officers together removed a total of 140 impaired drivers. B.C. reports that the

number of fatalities related to impaired driving (drugs, alcohol, prescription medication) continues to drop, from 126 in 2010 to 73 in 2011, and preliminary data for 2012 shows a historic low of 59. Preliminary RCMP data for 2012 also indicates that the number of impaired drivers on the road has significantly decreased with fewer drivers being charged. Combined with the reduction in fatalities, this suggests that public attitudes and behaviours are changing significantly when it comes to impaired driving. “The recent drop in impaired-related motor vehicle fatalities is the ‘good news’ story,” stated Insp. Ted Emanuels, Officer in Charge for RCMP Lower Mainland District Traffic Services. “In 2011 and 2012, 120 people were not killed by impaired driving and 120 families were not devastated for life.” Inspector Emanuels attributes the dramatic decrease in impaired driv-

ing in B.C. to effective partnerships between the police and government and private strategic road safety partners, and more importantly, the change in attitude and behaviour of the public. More than ever, impaired driving is not acceptable in B.C. “Today we recognize Alexa’s Team members who work hard every day to reduce the number of alcohol-related injuries and fatalities on our roads – and the strategy is working,” said Shirley Bond, Minister of Justice and Attorney General. “The fight against impaired driving is about saving lives and protecting families and that’s exactly what Alexa’s Team members and police officers are doing in communities right across the province.” ICBC thanked the RCMP members who worked hard to remove impaired drivers from B.C. roads.  “We want to sincerely thank all of the police officers on Alexa’s Team for their exceptional dedication and commitment to

Council tours St. Ann’s block in advance of project Campbell River city council recently toured the St Ann’s Block area as part of the lead up to the downtown revitalization and upgrade work about to happen in this area. “Downtown revitalization is a council priority. This project is a good start on creating an improved downtown core area,” said Mayor Walter Jakeway. “During the tour it became evident that we need to upgrade the infrastructure in this area. When a city has buried wood stave drainage pipe, it’s time to modernize before serious problems arise. I’m looking forward to seeing the work start and believe it will be worth the investment.” The St Ann’s project involves upgrading underground services—such as sewer, water, storm drainage, etc.—and making above-ground improvements to roads, landscaping, sidewalks and public areas that connect 10th Avenue to Shoppers Row via the St. Ann’s block area (defined by the northsouth boundary of Beech Street and St. Ann’s Road and the east-west boundary of Dubeau and Alder streets.) “Residents in other areas of the city should not feel forgotten, they are not being ignored, however the timing of this St. Ann’s work fits with the major  new building con-

project involve finalizing design and tendering for the construction work, which is expected to begin in June. Once the tender is awarded the city will work with the contractor to establish a Traffic Management Plan that will endeavour to minimize disruptions to local businesses, visitors, and residents. The city has established a website project page here to share information and will offer regular updates via local media, e-mail and directly to site neighbours to keep everyone informed.

struction,” Jakeway added. The tour, led by Campbell River Capital Works Manager, Jason Hartley, P.Eng, covered above and below ground works, hydro and utilities, road and sidewalk plans, landscaping and outlined some of the challenges of the site. Some of these include the poor condition of the soil with the presence of beach gravels and organic matters as the project site was once much close to the beach and waterfront. It is expected that these upgrades alongside the new Seymour Pacific office building being built in the

same block, will drastically change the entire area. For example, the aboveground upgrades will help to create inviting spaces for pedestrians, cyclists and visitors. New trees, plus small park-like spaces and garden areas will work together to create places where visitors and shoppers might mingle with workers on lunch hour. New streetlights (similar to those in Willow Point and on Highway 19A) will improve lighting in the evening and creative paving stones and the inclusion of artistic elements will lend visual interest

to streets and lane ways. Options for sidewalk patio space allow for the activities and energy inside the spaces to be brought out into the public realm. The next steps in the

with a comfortable 6-0 victory over Parkland, Victoria. Goalscorers were Selena Lasote with a hat trick, Claire Pomeroy, Jenna Manners and Talise Lindenbach. The second game brought a far sterner challenge with Clayton Heights, of Surrey, Vancouver. The Surrey team started well and out battled the host team and went into a deserved 1-0 lead. This shook up the Tyees and they responded well. After a good spell of pressure Eilidh “Razza” Rasmussen finished well to level the scores. Six minutes later an excellent run down the left hand side of the pitch saw a cross from Manners which we met by the onrushing Lasote who showed “Sergio Aquero” like pace to reach the ball ahead of the Clayton Heights defender before slotting the goal past

the keeper. The second half saw an excellent performance from the Carihi team. The central defensive partnership of Alana Smith and Jocelyn Cormier were outstanding and were ably supported by full backs Carrie Gage, Marisa Boyle and Taylor Marsh. The score remained the same and the Tyees advanced to the semi final the following day against Ballenas. On the other side Stelly’s of Victoria had defeated both Dover Bay and Argyle to advance to their semi final against Panarama Ridge. SEMI FINAL The Tyees semi final saw a comfortable 6-0 victory over an injury plagued and much weakened Ballenas side. Ballenas had won two excellent games the previous day but had to leave four players behind on the

Friday due to Community Soccer “A” cup play on the Saturday. Goalscorers in this game were Karlyn Healy with a brace, Lasote, Razza, Gage and Haley Craddock. The pick of the goals was a superb header from Craddock from about ten yards out after an excellent cross by Healy. The game was won in the first 20 minutes and it provided the opportunity for the Tyees to build upon the style of play they want to use in the more challenging games. In the middle of the park Olivia Curry, Lindenbach and Manners showed excellent composure and Bethan Curnow made a very encouraging school debut. On the other pitch Stelly’s defeated Panarama Ridge in a thrilling 2-1 game. FINAL The Cup final was an outstanding game of soccer.

The chances to score were few and far between as the two teams played solid defence with great shape and discipline. Stelly’s had a long speculative shot well saved by Tyee keeper Craddock in the early stages of the game and in return the Stelly’s keeper came out quickly to close down a couple of half chances by Lasote and Razza. There was a playoff style atmosphere and despite being a very physical game it was played in an outstanding spirit. It was no surprise that the game ended in a 0-0 tie and it went straight to a shoot out. Stelly’s put every shot into the corner leaving back up keeper Anika Shelrud with no chance of making a save. In doing so it was Stelly’s who stole the Fairy tale ending this heavily Grade 12 Tyees team were seeking. Selena Lasote was awarded the Carihi MVP

for the Tournament. Carihi also had their Senior B and Junior Girls playing in the Plate side of the tournament. Both enjoyed a win during the tournament and had a lot of fun.

NEXT WEEK The Tyees Senior “A” Girls have their fourth league game against Mark Isfeld today. The girls hope to make it 4 wins in 4 and maintain their place at the top of the Division with Brooks of Powell River. The following day the team travel to the prestigious UVIC classic which is another 24 team Tournament. The Tyees Senior “B” team host Highland on Wednesday. The Tyees Junior Girls travel to Cumberland on Monday and travel to Brooks, Powell River.

Herman’s gold wrestles a national team spot Eight of Campbell River’s top wrestlers travelled to this year’s Canadian National Wrestling tournament in Saskatoon, to compete against the best qualifying wrestlers Canada has to offer. The wrestlers competed in the freestyle catagory during the first two days of competition. Leading the way was two time provincial champion Ashley Osachuk, who had an outstanding performance earning herself a silver medal in the 52kg juvenile girls division (grade 11 & 12). Closely behind was the performance of Conlan Foy in the cadet boys 46kg division (grade 9 & 10), earning himself a bronze medal in his first year competing at the national level. Hailey Dean earned a respectable fifth place in the cadet girls 46kg division, while Ali Mcphee rounded out the top six finishers with a sixth place in the 60kg cadet girls. Other strong performances that fell short of the podium came from Brett Nelson (Juvenile 58kg), Dawson McKay (Cadet 85kg), Mike Herman (Juvenile 50kg) and Alex Jinda (Cadet 76kg).

Mariners a hardy group as they shrug off early grey skies to pack the Ocean Pacific Marine and Boat Show

Scene & Heard

CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || WEDNESDAY, WEDNESDAY, APRIL APRIL 17, 17, 2013 2013 || CAMPBELL

It was all hands on deck at the Ocean Pacific boatyard Saturday as hundreds took in the Marine and Boat show. Early morning grey skies wore off quickly and became sunny conditions as marine suppliers demonstrated their products and boat owners and marine industry workers looked to scoop up the good deals. The event also raised money for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation through an auction.

Like everybody else at the Marine and Boat Show, Jasmine (left) and Juliana Martin dreamed of being able to take the $700,000 MV Great Dane out for a spin. All they could do, though, was settle for a tour of the dry-docked vessel and try out the captain’s chair.
