Candidates talk business at chamber forum Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The North Island’s three candidates got down to business at Wednesday’s all-candidates meeting. They didn’t have much choice. The Campbell River Chamber of Commerce hosted the sold-out event and, naturally, the questions were business related. “If we look at employment we can see that approximately 1,027,900 people were employed by small business in B.C. in 2011,” said Corby Lamb, the chamber’s vice-chair. “This accounts for 56 per cent of all private sector employment – second in the country – and 45 per cent of total employment including public sector.” Lamb moderated the question and answer session at the Royal Continued on A5 Kristen Douglas/the Mirror

Residents showed their support for the SPCA Wednesday at city hall during a proclamation to kick off a month-long fundraiser. About 50 people gathered on the front lawn of city hall as Acting Mayor Larry Samson declared May to be SPCA month in Campbell River.

The SPCA lowered its asking price in a bid to resume its services in Campbell River. Veterinarian Helen Kwong said the latest proposal from the SPCA

Week

(Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is to run the animal shelter for $80,000 per year; the SPCA originally asked the city for $95,000. Kwong said while what the SPCA did is admirable, she can’t see the lower price being financially sus-

tainable for the society which said it costs $400,000 each year to run the Campbell River shelter. “I know the SPCA made a proposal to the city and the amount they provided is $80,000,” Kwong told a crowd of SPCA supporters gathered at city hall Wednesday

City will match SPCA donations up to $10,000 Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

A

bout 50 people congregated on the lush green grass in front of city hall Wednesday afternoon as Acting Mayor Larry Samson declared May to be SPCA month in Campbell River. SPCA supporters treated Samson to a round of applause as he not only proclaimed May as Go Loonie for the SPCA month but pledged to contribute to the fundraiser to bring back the SPCA. “City council is proud

to support the SPCA Go Loonie fundraiser,” Samson said. “City council has pledged to match all funds raised up to a maximum of $10,000.” Veterinarian Helen Kwong said the city better be ready to step up and fulfil its commitment because the fundraiser has already raised $9,000 as of Wednesday – day one of the 31-day campaign. “This tells you how much community support we have for the SPCA,” Kwong said. “Our Go Loonie for the SPCA will be a wake up call for the city. We want action

and we want it now. This is what Campbell River wants and by goodness, this is what Campbell River will get.” SPCA supporter Carol Chapman, who has volunteered her time to be the face of the fundraiser, told the crowd gathered at city hall she has confidence in the community. “We’re going to build a new shelter to house the SPCA and we’re going to raise the money,” Chapman said. “We need to make this fundraiser huge and put this town on the map as the town that could and will raise money for a shelter for

the SPCA to do their business. It’s people like you guys who will make this dream a reality. It’s going to be hard work and it’s going to be long term but we’re going to do it.” Samson also acknowledged the community’s loyalty to and support for the SPCA. “ The residents of Campbell River continue to show time and time again when things are not going the way they want, they are willing to step up and face the challenge,” he said. “Your presence today shows how animal welfare in

the city is important to you.” Samson said council recognizes that there will be long-term financial challenges in respect to the SPCA. The goal of the Go Loonie fundraiser is to help subsidize the SPCA, which was losing $10,000 per year at its Campbell River branch. The campaign is set up as a challenge. Companies and individuals are encouraged to challenge other businesses or their neighbours to see who can raise the most money through creative fundraisers such as bake sales,

book sales, garage sales, auctions, dog washing, or coffee sales. SPCA supporter Krista Hack plans to shave her head June 1 in exchange for donations to the SPCA. Her locks will be donated to an organization which makes wigs for cancer patients. Discovery Trekking Outfitters is vying to win a small business contest and donate the entire $5,000 in winnings to the SPCA. The link to vote is: www.loveourlocalbusiness.com Campbell River Avon is selling beauty kits for

$29.99, and $5 from each purchase will go towards the SPCA. Additionally, for each person who joins Curves’ complete diet during the month of May, $10 will be donated to the SPCA. Kwong said all of the dollars raised in the community will stay in the community. She’s confident that the SPCA will return and all the monies will go towards the Campbell River branch. An account to drop off donations is now open at Scotia Bank. All donations must be made by May 31.

used towards its operations. Without that extra money, the SPCA was forced to turn down the city’s offer of $58,000 to run the animal shelter plus an additional $34,000 grant-in-aid. Since then, the community has lobbied city council to change its mind and bring the SPCA back. Part of the problem is the city only

budgeted $164,000 for both animal control and pound services; the SPCA’s quote would put council over that figure. Kwong said a meeting two weeks ago between herself, SPCA chief executive officer Craig Daniell, SPCA supporter Cyriel DeBruyne and city council did not resolve some of the long-standing issues, particularly

the conditions that the SPCA was working in. “What was discussed and what is being offered is uncons cionable,” Kwong said. “It has been suggested that the former SPCA building be split into two separate buildings with the SPCA taking about 40 per cent and Coastal Animal Control Services taking the remaining 60 per

cent. The Campbell River SPCA was bulging at the seams already and you want to stuff them in less than 50 per cent of the space? In the summer, the staff ran fans with ice in front of them to cool the animals and in the winter, the heating was inadequate. Why spend thousands of dollars to commission an engineering study and split a

dysfunctional building?” But Wednesday during the proclamation at city hall, Acting Mayor Larry Samson said council recognizes that the shelter is in need of major renovations. The difficulty is most of the SPCA’s f undraising ef for ts went towards the costly upkeep of the animals – its number one priority – rather than a new

building, and the city’s SPCA reserve fund only has around $2,700 in it as of last September. Kwong would be satisfied with having the SPCA move back into the shelter on Merecroft Road and share the space with Coastal Animal Control until the community can raise enough money to build a new shelter.

Candidates: Business topic of the day Continued from A1

Coachman with NDP incumbent Claire Trevena, Liberal candidate Nick Facey and Conservative representative Bob Bray. Facing a largely proLiberal audience, Facey was able to open with one of the best lines of the luncheon. “There’s nothing small about small business in B.C.,” he said. Facey said the Liberals plan to offer small business owners a tax cut, to help them re-invest, and to streamline the bidding process for modest government contracts. He also affirmed the party’s commitment to big business. Facey said the North Island region would benefit from a new mine and sawmill, and he touted the oil and gas sector, offering support for David Black’s plan to build an oil refinery in Kitimat that would bring in oil from the proposed Northern Gateway Enbridge pipeline. Trevena didn’t back down from her party’s policy which is firmly against building an oil pipeline from the Alberta oil sands to the B.C. coast. She also said big business has to pay its way, pointing out that Campbell River has “borne the brunt” of Catalyst

abandoning the Elk Falls paper mill. “Industry can’t get a free ride…and industry benefits from the services offered in the community,” said Trevena, who pointed out the NDP’s one per cent corporate tax hike would pay for training and education. She also tried to appease the small business community by say the NDP offers stability and “no surprises,” citing the Liberal’s debacle of trying to implement the harmonized sales tax. Trevena also said the NDP would freeze small business taxes and all the campaign promises are accounted for, based on “restrained” economic growth. For the most part, Bray preached the Conservatives’ very conservative platform: balance the budget, keep taxes low and create a business-

friendly government. He also took a shot at the flip-flop on provincial and harmonized sales taxes. “The PST isn’t business friendly,” he said. “There is some work to do.” Bray also supported resource development and believes the risks involved in transporting oil are “exaggerated.” He said the Conservatives would implement plans to mitigate potential risks. The subject of a balanced provincial budget provided one of the more interesting exchanges of the meeting. Facey reaffirmed his party’s commitment to balancing the budget and to pay down debt so that, “we don’t burden the future generations with the decisions we make.” Trevena countered that eight of the last 13 Liberal budgets have not been balanced and she

questioned this year’s figures too. “No one really thinks it’s a balanced budget,” she said. Quick notes n On the subject of BC Ferries, Facey said government needs to find the roots of the problems and not patch it up with a “bandaid solution.”

May 6-17. That survey will ask residents what they think is the most important issue facing the community, how the quality of life is in Campbell River, how the quality of life has changed in the past three years, and the cause of the change in quality of life. Residents will also be asked to rank their satisfaction with city services such as maintenance, cleaning and upgrading of streets and sidewalks, recreation programs, parks, trails and other green space mainte-

nance and development, cultural facilities, and the library. Finally, the survey will poll residents on the value they feel they’re getting for their tax dollars, their preference for balancing taxation and service levels, information citizens want from the city, the best method for the city to communicate information to citizens, the frequency of contact with the city for information/service, and the level of satisfaction with city customer service. Julie Douglas, the city’s

communications advisor, said in a report to council that extra questions could be added to the survey for a cost. “Should council wish to address other issues not in the core survey, staff have the opportunity to add additional questions prior to May 1,” Douglas said. “The cost for custom questions is $900 each.” However, at last week’s council meeting, no councillor put forward a motion to formally add another question, though Mayor Walter Jakeway expressed his

concern that the survey didn’t include any questions about Robron Park – a multi-million dollar improvement project that will more than likely involve borrowing money. “I don’t see anything about Robron park – that’s a sizeable expenditure,” Jakeway said. Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services, confirmed that city staff did not craft a question regarding Robron, but added council could direct staff to add such a question.

Council in the end, however, only received Douglas’ report as information. City staff expect to have the results of the survey by mid-June and will prepare a report detailing the outcome for the next council meeting after the results arrive. This will be the first time since 2006 the city has conducted a statistically-valid satisfaction survey of local residents. The previous survey generated 400 responses over the phone and cost the city approximately $10,000.

Fighting the good fight

The bright yellow plant, which kills native species, has spread across the city in recent years but local volunteers have worked feverishly to

eradicate broom. The Communities in Bloom Committee and the Noon Hour Rotary Club joined forces April 13 to pull out the broom at Tyee Spit. Kerr said 42 volunteers turned out to conquer the invasive species. “I dare you to go down to Tyee Spit and find any broom,” Kerr told council last week. That event was followed up by a Broom Bash meeting at the Eagles last Saturday. Kerr has been the driving force on council in a bid to

eradicate broom. He put forward a motion in March directing city staff to prepare a policy for the eradication of broom from all city-owned properties as well as a policy to motivate property owners to remove the plant from their own properties. That policy is still being worked on by staff.

One year later, woman’s death remains a mystery Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The death of Kingcome Inlet woman, found south of the city last year, remains a mystery. The body of Elizabeth Lagis, 33, was found by the side of the Inland Island Highway, just south of Hamm Road, on March 9, 2011. “Since that date, an investigative team from the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit, with the support of the BC Coroners Service, has conducted an exhaustive investigation into the circumstances

su r rou nd i ng L ag is’ death,” said RCMP Cpl. Darren Lagan in a news release. “Key findings of the investigation reveal that no criminality was involved in her death. The investigation also revealed that Elizabeth is believed to have passed away on March 7, at the location where her body was found.” Lagis had arrived by plane in Campbell River for two days of medical tests on March 6-7. She didn’t have a vehicle and called family members in Kingcome Inlet around 10:30 p.m. on March 6.

It was the last time they ever heard from her. She didn’t attend her next day’s appointments which led to a search. RCMP air and grounds crews, along with Campbell River Search and Rescue, conducted an exhaustive search of multiple areas of interest in and around Campbell River. Finally, on March 9, a passing motorist found her body. She was found eight-and-a-half metres down an embankment, off the highway, in a location obscured by a drainage culvert. However, more than a year later, police aren’t

saying how Lagis died or why she was found more than 25 kilometres away from the hotel where she was staying in downtown Campbell River. “Investigators met with Elizabeth’s family (Wednesday) and shared the findings of their investigation,” said Cpl. Lagan. “The family wishes to grieve in private.” Kingcome Inlet is a tiny community of about 100 people located on the Central Coast. Lagis worked part-time at the village council office, helped care for her mother, took part in the

fishing activities, and spent most of her time caring for her teenaged daughter. “My sister was just awesome,” her brother Percy told the Mirror last year. “She helped preserve food for the family, she helped with the fishing; smoking fish, canning them. She loved to eat crab. She could eat crab all week. She was a big part of the community and I’m going to really miss her.” The police investigation is officially over and the case has now been turned over to the BC Coroners Service.

p.m. at Courtenay Elementary School. This year’s theme “I Care About You” will be expressed throughout the evening as community members from both areas share their thoughts (brief speeches at 5 p.m.) about child and youth mental health, and families are engaged into important conversations about mental health. This day is also about giving every child a sense of belonging –

with family, friends, and their community. Parents can browse the various resource tables provided by local service providers from both communities so that they can learn more about the support systems available to them in both communities. Youth will have an opportunity to play games, participate in craft stations, contribute to our community quilting project, and have their faces painted.

Our View

Why are the feds playing by different rules? Chapter eight of the 2013 Spring Report of the Auditor General of Canada should ruffle the feathers of every taxpayer in this country. The title of chapter eight is “Spending on the Public Security and Anti-Terrorism Initiative.” The word “uncontrolled” should have We say: We all been at the front of that title. The spring report is the result of a performance have to fill out audit designed to identify “… how well our income tax government is managing its activities, responsibilities, and resources.” properly The conclusion of the Attorney General on the massive spending program geared to keep Canadians safe from terror is that, “…departments

and agencies reported spending $9.8 billion on PSAT Initiative activities, but information on whether departments used $3.1 billion in Initiative funding was not available.” Information on where $3.1 billion went is just not available? Why? It’s tax time and Canadians are being asked to provide proof of income and expenses to ensure we’re following rules to keep our economy humming along. Why is the federal government playing under a different set of rules? The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat mandate is to provide advice and support to Treasury Board ministers and provide oversight of the financial management of government. Given that they have identified three possible scenarios that might account

for what happened to the money (they are at least good at that) it shouldn’t be a big leap to drill down a little further. Money should be something easy to track. This department received X amount, then X gave it Y who spent it on Z. Here’s the paperwork about what Z is. According to the report, weaknesses in the way the government assesses proposals for funding and their reporting processes, were identified as far back as 2004. This isn’t pocket change, so the question needs to be asked: How well is the government managing activities, responsibilities and resources in this case? In a word: badly. – Black Press

Letters

Hospital not put at risk

Re: Liberals’ Statements in Friday, May 1 Mirror I am pleased to see the Liberal candidate is now involved with our hospital issue since it was the Liberals who tried to reduce our Campbell River Hospital to nothing more than a first aid station but were overwelmed with opposition which eventually changed that plan. I feel I need to clarify a couple of statements issued by the Liberals in their advertisement on May 1 in the Mirror as they are not correct. The statement that Claire Trevena opposes development of resource jobs is erroneous. The statement that she and the BC NDP are placing the new hospital and promised 36 more alternate level care beds at risk is completely false. The true fact is that Claire has worked hard for six years to ensure Campbell River and the Comox Valley both have a fully functioning acute care hospital with all the current services retained. She has convened regular hospital stakeholder meetings for six years, worked with the doctors, North Island mayors and councillors, First Nations, Citizens for Quality Health Care, nurses, other hospital employees, CR Hospital Foundation, CR Hospital Auxiliary, Chamber of Commerce, etc. as well as all levels of government. Having attended all those meetings, we can all attest to her continual devotion to our hospital, related services and her constituents. Claire has also worked hard on getting the alternate level care beds which have been promised. She has proven herself to be a very capable, experienced hard working MLA. Lois Jarvis

Just one all-candidates meeting left before election

Paul Rudan No, really

Good on the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce for holding one of the few all-candidates meetings in the city. Wednesday’s luncheon meeting was a packed house upstairs at the Royal Coachman as candidates were thoroughly quizzed on small business-related affairs for almost two hours. I’m not sure the candidates had time to wolf down the delightful lunch as the rest of us dined on salads, steamed veggies and chicken cordon bleu. But that’s small business folk – they keep politicians on their toes. I thought NDP incumbent Claire Trevena and Liberal hopeful Nick Facey provided the best answers. Both are well-drilled in current party policy and both well-acquainted with the riding, its history, and our various wants

and needs. It’s hard to say who had the edge. Trevena is the more polished speaker, but Facey and the Liberals have a lot of support in the business community. Bob Bray, candidate for the new BC Conservative Party, is a knowledgeable and nice guy. But he needs to learn more about the riding and he’s disadvantaged because a lot of his party policy is evolving with the campaign. Ah well, we’ll find out on May 14. Actually, I over-stated the “few” allcandidates meetings. Two would be precise. The only other all-candidates forum is taking place on Monday at the seniors centre, located at Campbell River Common mall. The meeting is open to everyone. And – drum roll please – for a mere

$8, you get homemade lasagna and ribs, dessert and tea or coffee. Dinner’s from 5-6 p.m., meeting after – good deal! Stop by the centre today and get your ticket so the chefs can get a head-start this weekend. It’s a little disappointing there isn’t an all-candidates forum taking place in a larger venue, but then it’s hard to know if enough people would show up to fill 300-400 seats. During Wednesday’s forum, Bray pointed out that in the last provincial election, just 40 per cent of eligible voters in the North Island riding actually voted. That’s sad and pathetic, and Bray, to his credit, is encouraging more people to vote. And on the subject of more voters, the two high schools in Port McNeill

and Port Hardy hosted all-candidates meetings last week. As well, chambers of commerce in the two North Island communities also hosted public forums for the candidates. Unfortunately, in Campbell River, there are no scheduled all-candidates meetings for either public high school. And that’s not the choice of the candidates – all they needed was an invitation. Someone is interested in politics at the secondary level. I do know that because this week students were encouraged to vote on the Mirror’s online poll to support the Robron field project and we had one of our biggest responses ever. Good for the students and I hope they’re are just as motivated to vote when they reach 18. paulr@campbellrivermirror.com

Imagine Living On An Island that has been declared a Genetically Engineered (GE) Free Zone? That first step, perhaps eventually leading to a virtual Garden of Eden, was taken by a Metchosin councillor, Moralea Milne, at last month’s convention of the Assoc. of Vancouver Island Coastal Communities (AVICC). The motion that Moralea brought forward read “….therefore be it be resolved that AVICC ask the B.C. government to legislate the prohibition of importing, exporting and growing of plants and seeds containing genetically engineered DNA, the raising of GE animals and in the waters nearby, and to declare, through legislation, that the area encompassed by AVICC is a GE Free

our students will be “climbing the walls.” Your generosity is very much appreciated. Thank you so much. – Barb Baldwin on behalf of Penfield Elementary PAC HERO – On Saturday March 23, at least 100 family and friends gathered at the north end of the Tyee Spit to say farewell to a real special friend who left us far too soon. Even though he suffered with his own health, he was right there when a friend needed help. He always had a smile and a wave. In the summer he would ride his motorcycle to the Spit with his little trusted friend, wearing her doggles, sitting behind him. There was one little girl at the memorial who wasn’t there to say goodbye. She was there looking for her daddy. She was so excited because they always

went to the Spit together. All the years we have known her, she never once barked. She barked that day because out of all those people she couldn’t find her daddy. Her name is Scruffy. I am crying right now as I wonder what she was thinking. Harold Berg, we all will miss you so much and I know Scruffy will miss you even more because she does not know why you are gone. Rest in Peace, Harold. No more pain.... Rest in Peace, dear friend. – Joy Shuster HEROES – All of our KidStart mentors for giving their time, energy, and encouragement to local children and youth every week.

Aquarium on track to open June 8 by the pier Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

As Discovery Passage SeaLife Society nears its targeted June 8 opening date for a downtown aquarium, more details about the seasonal attraction are being revealed. The society, which received charitable status this week, is accepting donations and plans to unveil the aquarium on June 8, Ocean’s Day.

The aquarium will feature approximately 30 tanks with creatures that are native to the area. Mark Wunsch, president of the SeaLife Society, said the intent is to give people a better understanding of the surrounding environment. “The intention is to represent the local environment and highlight special habitats,” Wunsch said. To do that, the society

plans to set up a three feet wide by four feet high cylindrical tank to house smolts and tell the story of the salmon. Wunsch said visitors will also be able to see plankton (which the salmon feed on), rock fish, crabs, sponges, corals, sea cucumbers, and sand dollars, among other things. There are also plans to have a few touch tanks so visitors to the aquarium can reach in and

experience what it’s like to touch a sea star, which Wunsch said smells like garlic, or a sea slug. “We’ll be covering quite a bit of ground,” Wunsch said. “The small, diverse life on the sea floor and swimming in the water.” Lorrie Bewza, vicepresident of Discovery Passage SeaLife Society, said the society expects to collect the sea life this month in preparation for the aquarium’s grand opening. The plan is to release all of the creatures back to the ocean in Septem-

ber. That process will be repeated each year, and the aquarium will be open annually from May to September. While the aquarium will cater to locals and tourists, Bewza said the number one priority will be the welfare of the sea life. “We’ll be pumping in salt water from the ocean and running it through the tanks to keep the tanks cool and provide oxygen and nutrition,” Bewza said. “The building will always be kept cool or cold because it’s about the creatures first.”

2012. Included in the deficit is a $1.1 million tax shortfall carried over from 2011, plus a $1.3 million increase in costs related to contract commitments and inflationary increases, said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services. If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city. That one per cent increase would mean roughly $12 more per year in property taxes for the average homeowner. The city’s operating budget is approximately $37 million which Continued on A3

In 1940, a plane crash in Seymour Narrows took the lives of five RCAF airmen, including H.L. Gordon Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Peter Gordon never knew his father. He was just 16 months old when his dad, Hugh Lockhart Gordon, perished in a plane crash along with four other men. The date was August 14, 1940. All five men were members of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and were on a routine flight from Alliford Bay in the Queen Charlotte Islands to Patricia Bay in Victoria. They never made it. “I’m not morose about never knowing my father,” says Peter. “I just never had the chance... Apparently I’m a dead ringer for him, the mannerisms and everything.” Saturday is a special day for the Gordon family and their friends who will reunite in Campbell River. They’re coming to scatter the ashes of Gordon’s mother Helen, who died a year ago at age 101. She had been married to Gordon for less than two years when he was tragically killed. “She deeply loved him (and) she had him taken away from her in the prime of his life,” says Peter from his home in Duncan. When Gordon died, Helen was taking care of Peter, just a toddler,

and another son, Hugh Donald, who was just 13 days old. Tragically, his brother would die in a drowning accident when he was just 21. “My mother had a tough life,” says Peter. Ironically, Helen’s maiden name was Gordon when she met Hugh Gordon. They would marry in Toronto in November 1938. He ha d atte nd e d Royal Military College in Kingston, Ontario, obtained a degree in accounting and then went to work at a prestigious firm in Montreal. But then came war and Hugh enlisted in the RCAF. Helen went to stay with family in Regina while Hugh was sent west to Victoria. On the fateful day, their pontoon-equipped plane was heading south, homeward bound, when they passed over a luxury yacht. According to the newspaper account from the Victoria Daily Times, a witness described the crash: “The plane made a big circle over the yacht as if inspecting it. Then it made second circle at a lower altitude. After this, it headed south again. “It hadn’t gone more than 1,000 feet when it seemed to dive right into the ocean. It struck with a terrific crash and spray flew up 60 feet.” Boaters in the area

With a parachute strapped to his back, Hugh Lockhart Gordon climbs aboard a Royal Canadian Air Force plane. He died in August, 1940, along with four other men when their plane crashed just north of Campbell River.

Pictured above is Peter Gordon, son of Hugh and Helen Gordon on their wedding day in Toronto in November, 1938.

came to the rescue, but the only thing they managed to save was a pontoon. The bodies of the men were never found which isn’t unusual given the strong tides in Seymour Narrows. Peter and a good friend

have some theories about why the plane crashed, but no one will ever know for sure. Helen would later remarry and have another son, but her heart was always with Hugh. Before her death, she told Peter

it was her wish to have her ashes “joined” with Hugh’s. That takes place tomorrow, after a reception at the museum. “My son Patrick and myself will spread the ashes,” said Peter.

| CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR | FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2013

assandra McInnes begins and ends every day by doing several hours of demanding physical and inhalation therapy to help clear her lungs and airways of the tenacious secretions that can make breathing difficult. As well, she takes many different medications to help her digest her food and improve her nutritional status. It is essential that she include daily exercise in her regime and dances, walks her dogs and has recently taken up horseback riding. McInnes has been doing the necessary treatments since she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of eight months. She has grown up not knowing any different – dealing with CF has become a way of life for McInnes and her family. She lives in Gold River with her

family and must travel to Vancouver for specialized care at the CF Clinic at St. Paul’s Hospital at least every three months and has had to stay in the hospital for intensive treatment with IV antibiotics a few times. McIinnes said “I mean there are times when I forget I have Cystic Fibrosis. I know it affects the people around me more than I realize. This is something I live with everyday I can’t hide from it. I find I need to live in the moment and what happens, happens. I don’t like to think about my CF.” Currently, there is no cure for Canadians with cystic fibrosis. Each week in Canada, two children are diagnosed and one person dies from this disease. McInnes is inviting everyone to join in the

Urging Campbell Riverites to take part in the Great Strides Walk for cystic fibrosis are (from left) Jim Costain of Dairy Queen, Cassandra McInnes, Ian Roberts of Marine Harvest and Kinsman Bob Nichols.

Great Strides walk on Sunday, May 26. The walk will take place at Penfield School in Campbell River with registration beginning at 10:30 a.m. and the walk starts at 11 a.m. Walk organizer Krista Homef

Houston would like people to know it is a very family friendly walk. People can get all the details and register on line at www.cysticfibrosis.ca/greatstrides. Houston said, “a special thanks to

Dairy Queen Owner Jim Costain who has donated hamburgers and hotdogs for the barbecue and ice cream.” Barbecuing will be done by Kinsmen Club members. Other sponsors include Marine

Harvest, Capacity Forest Management, Thrifty Foods, Quinsam Coal, Bounce-A-Rama Rentals and All in One Party Shop. Houston also welcomes a new team of walkers this year from Walmart who have planned some extra fund raisers in support of the Great Strides Walk. Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. It is a multi-system disease that mainly affects the lungs and the digestive system. Most deaths related to cystic fibrosis are due to lung disease. Severe respiratory problems result from a build-up of thick mucus in the lungs of CF patients, where the effects are most devastating. Mucus and protein also build up in the digestive tract, making

it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. There are 4,000 Canadians living with cystic fibrosis. The fund raised from the Great Strides Walk will support vital CF research and clinical care. McGinnes said, “I am so grateful to everyone who is supporting Great Strides. It means so much to know people care and want to help.” You can help by participating in or supporting the Great Strides Walk - taking strides so those who fight CF everyday know that someone is in their corner. We know it is not going to be one big step to find a cure but all of us taking little steps- together. For more information about Cystic Fibrosis and how you can donate or participate in an event, visit our website at www.crcf.ca.

2012. Included in the deficit is a $1.1 million tax shortfall carried over from 2011, plus a $1.3 million increase in costs related to contract commitments and inflationary increases, said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services. If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city. That one per cent increase would mean roughly $12 more per year in property taxes for the average homeowner. The city’s operating budget is approximately $37 million which Continued on A3

Garage organization 101 G

arages are coveted by homeowners across the country, offering a space to park a car and protect it from the elements. But many people do not park a car in their garage, only to find the garage become a home to clutter. Garages tend to become the official catch-all of a home. When an item cannot be crammed into a hiding space elsewhere, it often ends up dumped into the garage, where it joins the long list of other abandoned items. It can be easy to let garages become a wasteland because everything put inside a garage is behind a closed door. That mess can quickly build up, and reclaiming your garage requires energy, time, organization, and a plan. Organizing a garage will take some time. An entire weekend or two consecutive days may be necessary depending on the level of disarray. Taking everything out of the garage and going through the sorting process may take the most time. When sorting, separate any broken items, which can immediately be put at the curb for trash pick-up. Examine things that you

There may be things in the “keep” pile that are simply out of place in the garage and may be better stored elsewhere. Think about which items can be moved to a basement or attic because of their infrequency of use, such as holiday decorations, suitcases, and collectibles. You may prefer to move lawn and garden items out of the garage and into a shed in the backyard. After completing the sort-

7x14

ing process, look at the garage as a blank space and measure out the room that you have. This will provide an empty canvas as a starting off point. To maximize the amount of space you have as a work area or a place to park your car, invest in as many tools as possible to utilize vertical space. Shelving, hooks and cabinetry will take things off of the floor, while storage units with doors can hide items that lack aesthetic appeal. Rolling tool caddies and cabinets can keep all tools neat and in organized drawers so you’re never

A17

hunting and pecking for a tool again. A cabinet that has a lock and key can be utilized for dangerous chemicals that need to be kept out of the hands of children and away from pets. Think about how the garage will appear from the curb when the door is raised and create a design that will be functional and neat. Take the opportunity while the garage is empty to give walls and floors a fresh coat of paint and improve the lighting in the garage. A brighter garage makes for a better work station.

have not used in some time. If you haven’t missed it, there’s a good chance that you can discard the item or donate it. Create separate piles for donations and trash. Move the items that will

be kept into a separate pile. After all of the trash and donations are removed from the premises, then you can look at what is remaining and begin planning out a more organized storage system.

Mirror parent company named title sponsor of prestigious Van Isle 360 yacht race FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2013 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Chris Bush Black Press

Black Press community newspapers will chart a course alongside sailing yachts from across the Pacific Northwest for the Black Press Van Isle 360° 2013 International Yacht Race. With a race organizer in place, Black Press announced its sponsorship of the event Monday. Formerly known as the Cadillac Van Isle 360° International Yacht Race, the event, which starts and finishes in Nanaimo, has run since 1999 when Nanaimo yachters Wayne Gorrie and Janine Bell organized the competition and attracted 14 boats to circumnavigate  Vancouver Island. The race has run every other year on the odd year since 2001 and has become the most challenging yachting event in the region. In 2011 Blast Performance Sailing acquired the rights to the event with Jeffrey Motley, owner of the Vancouverbased company, and his wife Sylvia becoming the race’s lead organizers. “They were looking for someone to take it over and it was one of those things where the sailing community really didn’t want to see the race disappear,” Motley said.

Paul Rudan/MiRRoR File

The Van Isle 360 yacht race returns this summer with a new sponsor, Black Press, parent company of the Campbell River Mirror.

“The long and the short is we decided to take it on and keep it going.” Black Press was asked to sponsor this year’s race because of the news agency’s ability to provide in-depth coverage both regionally and at a community level. Mark Warner, president of Black Press Vancouver Island operations, said he considers being given the opportunity to become title sponsor of the event an honour. “As our staff, readers and customers are residents throughout western Canada and the U.S.A., we feel it is important to invest and participate in the activities and organizations that make our communities a better place to live

and play,” Warner said. “Many of us grew up on or near the ocean, and we respect the beauty and incredible experiences it has to offer.” Motley and Black Press share the same goals to promote the race and the communities taking part, and enhance Island tourism. “What we want to do, if we can, is build the race to the same level as the (Rolex) Sydney Hobart Yacht Race in Australia where people wake up on Boxing Day and watch a sailboat race,” Motley said. The Van Isle 360° is truly an international event with two-thirds of entrants drawn from the Island and Lower Mainland, and one-third of

contenders from the U.S. Pacific Northwest. Motley is also trying to make people aware of the world-class levels of competition happening in local waters, hoping they aspire to race one day. The big races are the drivers of the industry. “In the Pacific Northwest this is the race,” Motley said. “Where else can you have two weeks of summer adult camp, chasing everybody around the rock and just having a great time?” It can be a dangerous venture, too. In 2011, crews were hit with 100

so important?

Answer: Fluoride has long been a topic of debate and although fluoride use has its critics, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention consider the introduction of fluoride to improve oral health one of the top 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century. Dr. Kevin Lathangue Fluoride has a very unique property in that it can replace Calcium in our enamel. So when our teeth are exposed to acid (which is how decay starts) the acid leaches (pulls) calcium out of our enamel thereby weakening our teeth. Fluoride, when available, replaces the calcium in our enamel and makes our teeth more resistant to acid. So, in essence, fluoride makes our teeth stronger because acid from bacteria won’t be as effective at decaying our teeth. It’s still very important to brush and floss because, even with fluoride replacing our calcium, our teeth are still susceptible to decay. So 2-3 minutes twice a day for brushing and flossing every day is still the Canadian Dental Association recommendation.

Heavier items are expected  to arrive with higher frequency throughout the spring and summer of 2013. “One of most interesting aspects – and we don’t know how big it’s going to be – is the potential for tsunami debris off the West Coast,” Motley said.

Asking the challenging questions

FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2013 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Want to know the answer to something? Just google it. That’s the common phrase now. We rely on the internet to help us solve all sorts of problems. Have you ever googled a question, and thought to yourself, “wow, this person is really an expert, wish I could find out how they learned that.”

The Baptist Church has invited some of Canada’s top experts in the area of faith, Christianity and how it fits in our world – with a special focus on youth today. Teaming up with the church is the pop group, “Starfield,” who will entertain and engage the local teens. But as adults, we also wonder how beliefs and faith can fit into our lives,

too? We want to believe in something, and many of us do believe in some kind of higher power – but organized religion gives us the impression that we have to be pushed into a box. And what exactly is “organized religion?” Perhaps you’ve  heard what Christian’s believe, but haven’t actually asked one personally how it all

works out in their lives. You may have had some questions growing in the back of your head over the years, but haven’t found a non threatening place to seek out these answers – a place where you can seem anonymous and still listen and seek out some answers. On Saturday, the Baptist church on Dogwood has designed a day for

adults to join in the discussion with these same experts. A safe place to ask the challenging questions, or just listen. For complete information, and/or to register for the student day, youth evening and concert, Saturday workshop, or Banquet on Saturday night, go to www.crbaptist.bc.ca.

The Rotary Club of Campbell River, (Noon) has announced that it is now accepting applications for bursaries for the 2013 year. The bursaries are awarded each year by the Campbell River Rotary Club Foundation. Application blanks may be obtained from school councilors or by

going on the clubs Website at “campbellriverrotary.org/documents/ Bursary_Application. pdf ”. Click on the Club Business tab, then select Bursar y Scholarship Application. Download the form, fill it out completely and mail to Chairman, Bursary Committee, Rotary Club of Campbell River, P.O.

Box72, Campbell River BC, V9W 5Z9. Applications may also be dropped off at the Above Shore Dental Centre, attention of Dr. Bruce Woermke. Only hard copies of the application will be accepted. Deadline for the applications is June 15. To qualify for a bursary, the applicant must

be a graduate of a District 72 school. Adults are considered and any type of advanced education will qualify, including trade and vocational schools and post graduate college education. Financial need is considered as well as scholastic abilities. Funds for the bursa-

ries are obtained from investment returns from the Foundation and from a portion of the Bingo funds earned by the club. Size of the bursaries are determined by the selection committee according to the funds available for distribution. Last year, nine bursaries of $1,000 each were distributed.

Drive Smart BC Unsafe Headlight 2X14 Conversions Could you perhaps comment on poorly focused hi intensity illegal conversions done to forward lighting on vehicles asks a reader. He has had many of my friends comment on how newer vehicles with hi tech headlights have made night driving uncomfortable and unsafe for them. I’ve noticed that some of these conversions are also difficult to look at during the day as well. All of the components of the lighting system must be marked by the manufacturer to show that they meet standards. For headlights with filaments, you will find a North American SAE code or a European E code on the lens that starts with an H. The filament bulbs meant for use in these headlight housings will also start with an H. The newer gas discharge headlights similarly start with a D. It is both dangerous and illegal to mix these, and the most common conversion is to put a D type discharge capsule into an H type housing. This results in significant glare for other road users because the housings can no longer focus the light from the lamp properly. It also means the loss of ability to switch between high and low beam for vehicles with only one headlight on each side. Beware! Some “good deals” on eBay and through less scrupulous suppliers are marked with SAE, DOT or E markings but are counterfeit and do not do the intended job properly. Inspection facilities have reference material to help the inspector determine if a “fake” is being used and when they are found the vehicle must be failed. This effectively removes the vehicle from the road until satisfactory repairs are carried out. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience.

Ravens hot off the mark

Kristen Douglas/the Mirror

Let ‘er rip

Bantam player Colsen Simper of the Blue Jays lets it fly during a ball game Saturday at Nunns Creek Park. The Campbell River Minor Baseball season kicked off two weekends ago and continues until June. Campbell River players also have the opportunity to sign up for a summer baseball camp in Nanaimo which provides players with instruction from Blue Jays alumni. The Nanaimo camp runs from Aug. 19-21 and will be taught by Roberto Alomar, Jesse Barfield, Lloyd Moseby and Duane Ward.

The Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam B Ravens hosted the Saanich Tigers in a tiering game on Saturday, April 27.  The first home game of the season allowed more friends and family a chance to see how the team is starting to gain an appreciation of the fact that continuous effort pays huge dividends.  The first period Saturday started with both goalies playing well.  Saanich’s goalie had the heavier workload but Ravens goalie Will McLean also made a couple of nice saves to keep it scoreless halfway through the period.  Raven Zach Lontayao saw Quinn Pedersen make a cut and fired the pass to the top of the crease.  Pedersen lit the red goal light giving the Ravens a 1-0 lead at the end of the first period. The Ravens started the second period with great ball movement and some well-timed picks in the defensive and offensive zones. Bryce Turko fed a wide-open Lukas Lund near the goal. Lund shifted and wired a shot past the Saanich goalie to extend the lead; 2-0.  Shortly after that, Gavin Hope put a shot on net. The Saanich goalie made the save but the rebound came directly to Lontayao who put the ball over the goalie’s shoulder for a goal.  Mason Osterhout-Code is becoming a dominant force at both ends of the floor. While he was picking up the loose ball, both Saanich players

were picking themselves up from the concrete floor.  Osterhout-Code took the ball in on net and scored.  Shortly after that, Ross Rickman made the check of the night.  The Saanich ball-carrier was at least four inches taller than Rickman and probably more than twice Rickman’s weight.

Rickman used perfect technique to “angle” the Saanich player into the Ravens corner.  He then controlled the Saanich player and pinned him along the boards.  He stayed engaged on his check until the 30 second shot clock went off.  It was truly an unselfish play.  It reminds us that it’s

not the size of the Raven in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the Raven. Lontayao was in the right spot for another rebound as he scored to make it 4-0. Nolan Fair got the ball to Turko while short-handed and he made no mistake to extend the lead.  Ravens led 5-0 at the end of the second period. The third period saw a bit of everything. Turko scored on a behind-thehead shot and Raven Nolan Fair also scored, followed by additional goals from Reilly Doney and Pedersen. Fittingly, Rickman had the final check of the game and again did not allow the Saanich player to get the ball on net in the last 25 seconds of the game to preserve the shutout as the Ravens won 9-0. On Sunday, April 28, Nick Kool and Kari Martynyk were called up from the Bantam C team as the Bantam B team hosted the Nanaimo Timbermen.  Both adapted very well and contributed at both ends of the floor. The Ravens started applying pressure on the Timbermen from the opening face-off as they flew down the floor on the attack and on the back-check.  Their sustained and concerted effort paid off as they started to fill the back of the Timbermen’s net. The Ravens went on to a decisive 12-1 win. The Bantam B Ravens play Port Alberni at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, the last of six tiering games.  Expectations are for the Ravens to be shifted into the A division.

MINING WEEK 2013 Supporting Campbell River & The Comox Valley

Over this past week, the British Columbia Mining Industry has been LTD. celebrating Mining Week 2013 which has been our opportunity to share information about our A Division of Russel Metals Inc. industry and the impact it has in our METAL SERVICES CENTRES Province and local communities. Dependability since 1908 For many people, mining is an industry that is considered to be “done somewhere else” and we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about how mining affects our lives and lifestyles. In reality, mining is a big industry in British Columbia, including our local area, and is very important to all of us. Campbell River Florist The Flower Shop at Willow Point On a Provincial scale, the employee base in 2012 was 14,100 direct jobs and is projected to continue to NEW! grow. In addition, for every direct mining job there are 3 to 4 jobs that are created to support the mining industry. Looking in our own back LTD.

A number of years ago we saw bumper stickers appearing that read “If It Can’t Be Grown, It Has To Be Mined”. This explains quite well the scope of mining. If we take a few moments and look around us, most everything you see is attached to mining. Some items are easily understood because they are mostly metal like cars, boats, planes, etc. Other items need more understanding of their composition to realize they too come from mining. Plastic products come from petroleum resources that are “mined” from the ground. Glass,

concrete, asphalt, drywall, wiring, cell phone and computer materials, batteries, sun protection, health products, all come from mining… and the list goes on-and-on, making it clear what an impact mining has on our lives. Mining in Canada, and particularly British Columbia, has made great strides to ensure the extraction of resources is done with the utmost focus on safety, environmental, and social responsibilities. Mining in BC is on record as the safest heavy industry in the Province with fewer accidents and fatalities than any other resource sector. Environmental regulations and monitoring to ensure compliance is a significant part of the business, and is an area that mining companies take very seriously. Mining also values its social responsibilities and is constantly extending its favorable relationships with First Nation’s, community agencies, and Government entities at all levels. Again this year the Mining Industry has joined with our business partners, many of whom are shown around the perimeter of this page, to focus on how the mining industry worldwide affects our everyday lives. We are pleased to share how our industry affects all of us. Much more information on Mining is available through the Mining Association of BC’s website at www. mining.bc.ca. We also encourage everyone to inform themselves on the role Government plays in mining issues as we enter our Provincial Election. Information on candidate positions is available at www.votemining.ca. On behalf of all the employees at Quinsam Coal and Nyrstar Myra Falls, join us in celebrating Mining Week 2013. We look forward to a long and prosperous future for all of us!

speed of their passing increased. In doing this they were able to create more space than in the first half and they began to take control of the game. As the game was heading to penalties a flowing move from Carihi saw Eilidh “Razza” Rasmussen score the first goal. With only minutes left Brooks pushed on to try and tie the game. This left some space at the back and Selena Lasota was quick to exploit the space and scored a second goal with seconds remaining. It was a thrilling win in a very enjoyable game of soccer where both teams played very well. Carihi would like to acknowledge Jonathan at Intersport for his continued support and the grounds staff at SD 72. The Tyees have completed their regular season play, which saw them go undefeated with six wins. The North Island Championship is Monday, May 6 at Carihi with the semi-finals at 11:30 a.m. and the finals at 3:30 p.m.

Carihi’s girls soccer team enjoyed more success as it won the ninth annual Intersport Invitation last week. The Tyees’ first game saw a comfortable 8-0 win over Port Hardy Secondary. Their second game saw an encounter with North Island Secondary School from Port McNeill and once again the Tyees recorded a solid victory with a score of 4-0. Meanwhile, on the other side of the draw, Brooks of Powell River also progressed to the final. The meeting of Carihi and Brooks brought the only undefeated teams in the High School North Division together. Carihi was due to play Brooks at home on Wednesday but this game was to count as a “double header” and act as both the Cup Final and the final league game of the season. Brooks started as the stronger team and had the Tyees under pressure early but Tyee keeper Haley Craddock was alert and took charge whenever the ball entered her six yard area. The second half saw a much stronger performance from the Carihi team. Their movement was improved and the

Carihi band members found inspiration in Whistler but it wasn’t on the ski slopes. The Carihi Concert band and the Carihi Jazz band travelled to Whistler last weekend to participate in the 14th annual Con Brio Festival that attracted 33 bands from Western Canada and the USA. The founder of the festival, producer, arranger and award-winning composer Doug Macaulay says, “The goal of the festival is to create opportunities for musicians, educators and music students to learn, be inspired and find true joy in music.” The Carihi bands were indeed inspired by the festival. All the  faculty members at the festival have a passion for music and music education and the ability to communicate effectively and positively with stu-

dents of all ages and at all stages of musical development. They are leaders in composition, conducting and education theory, philosophy and practice. The Carihi concert band was adjudicated by Dr Wayne Jeffrey, Director of Ensembles of the Kwantlen University Department of Music, Ralph Ford, composer and professor of Music at Troy University in Alabama, Dr. Gerald King, Professor and Director of the School of Music at the University of Victoria.   The Carihi Concert band received a superior rating (gold) from these adjudicators for their performance. Dr. Jeffrey told the band during a post performance rehearsal that in his judgement this band is probably among the top 10-12 bands in the Continued on B2
