Marijuana policy needs B.C. approach: advocates With public opinion supporting a study on decriminalization and regulation of B.C.’s biggest cash crop, candidates are being urged to share their views Provincial politicians need to step up and reveal their views on the legalization of marijuana, according to several B.C. advocacy groups. Ted Smith, former head of the Victoriabased Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada, said the province needs to take action on the decriminaDaniel Palmer lization of Reporting marijuana and stop deflecting responsibility onto the federal government. “The provincial government (has always given) a lameduck excuse that it’s not their responsibility, because it’s a federal law,” Smith said. “But it is their responsibility, because the provinces and municipalities are paying for bad policy every day through our police departments. (The province) isn’t even defending these laws at all anymore, they’re just saying ‘it’s not our job.’” Advocates argue public opinion has reached a tipping point, as evidenced by a recent Angus Reid poll that shows 73 per cent of British Columbians want the province to undertake a comprehensive pilot study on the regulation of marijuana. Stop the Violence B.C., a multifaceted lobby group including law enforcement and health

officials, legal experts, academic professionals and current and former politicians, commissioned the poll. The group argues a regulated marijuana market will improve public health and safety by taking the drug out of the hands of criminal organizations and allowing government to develop a message for its responsible use by adults. “We manage to regulate one of the deadliest drugs, and that’s tobacco, and we want to examine that same model … for legalizing cannabis, much in the same way some of the U.S. states have done,” said John Anderson, a criminologist at Vancouver Island University and a Stop the Violence B.C. member. The poll also shows only 12 per cent of British Columbians would look unfavourably on their own political party for supporting a trial study on cannabis regulation. Last September, the Union of B.C. Municipalities passed a resolution urging the federal government to consider decriminalizing marijuana possession, a crime that accounted for 54 per cent of all reported drug crimes in Canada in 2011, according to Statistics Canada numbers. The onerous burden on police forces, as well as the health risks associated with an uncontrolled product, were two reasons given by the Canadian senate in 2002 when it recommended legalizing and regulating marijuana.

“We manage to regulate one of the deadliest drugs, and that’s tobacco, and we want to examine that same model … for legalizing cannabis … – John Anderson, Stop the Violence B.C.

And a UNICEF research study released last month revealed that 28 per cent of Canadian children aged 11, 13 and 15 reported having used cannabis in 20092010, the highest reported use among 29 developed countries. While the federal government has given no indication it would support marijuana regulation,

preliminary action by provincial politicians is overdue, said Geoff Plant, former B.C. attorney general. “British Columbians clearly want their politicians to show leadership on marijuana policy reform,” he said in a statement. “With the province facing an election in a few weeks, now is the time for all political parties to let the public know whether they will support the proposed research trial of cannabis taxation and regulation.” Stop the Violence B.C. has sent a questionnaire to all B.C. candidates asking their opinion on cannabis legalization; organizers plan to release any responses before the election. “Politicians are running

out of excuses not to act,” Anderson said. “You can’t put your personal viewpoints ahead of what the science says. Criminalizing cannabis is leading to more violence in society, not less.” In Monday’s televised debate, all four party leaders acknowledged current laws relating to marijuana are federal, but the NDP’s Adrian Dix and Green’s Jane Sterk reiterated their support for decriminalization. Premier Christy Clark avoided giving an opinion on the matter, while Conservative leader John Cummins said any changes would require discussions with Ottawa and the U.S. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Breaking the barrier

ELECTION NEWS IN BRIEF

Jasmine Parr steers her motorized wheelchair along the Ogden Point breakwater for the first time, after the structure was reopened with guardrails Tuesday. Parr, who has often watched people enviously from the nearby Ogden Pointe Café, was asked by the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority to be first member of the public to use the top level of the breakwater. It had been closed to public use for nearly three months during installation of the railings.

Candidate forums set for west ridings

The Esquimalt Residents Association is hosting an all-candidates forum at the Esquimalt Legion, 622 Admirals Rd. on Tuesday (May 7). The forum begins at 7 p.m. and includes MLA and NDP candidate Maurine Karagianis, Susan Low (Green), Chris Ricketts (Liberal) and Josh Steffler (Independent). Suggested topics include transportation, social services and healthcare, balanced budgets, trade and investment, sewage and amalgamation. A pair of forums are also scheduled for the VictoriaSwan Lake riding. The first happens May 7, 6:30 p.m., at the Burnside Gorge Community Centre, 471 Cecelia Rd. The other goes May 9, 7 p.m., at the Garth Homer Centre Auditorium, 813 Darwin Ave. in Saanich. Candidates for VictoriaSwan Lake are MLA Rob Fleming (NDP), Christina Bates (Liberal) and Spencer Malthouse (Green).

Leaders square off in TV debate

Economic and resource issues dominated Monday’s televised leaders debate. B.C.Liberal leader Christy Clark pressed her attack on Adrian Dix, the front-running leader of the NDP, accusing him of advocating big spending on government programs and restrictive environmental views that deter industrial development. “The NDP plan would rob Peter to pay Paul, hoping Paul will vote NDP,” Clark said. “My plan is to put both Peter and Paul to work.” Dix referred to B.C.’s ninth-place position in provincial job growth so far this year. “Neither Peter nor Paul are working,” he said. Green leader Jane Sterk and B.C. Conservative John Cummins also participated in the debate.

B.C. ELECTION

Some topics glossed over in campaign University panel spars over silent election issues Daniel Palmer News staff

The dominating theme of the 2013 B.C. election campaign is undoubtedly the economy, as resource development, environmental concerns and the rising provincial debt loom in the minds of politicians and voters. But what isn’t being discussed in the run-up to May 14? A panel of political academics and former and present politicians addressed that question Tuesday at the University of Victoria in front of about 150 people. “This has been an election of abstractions – who can manage the economy, create jobs, growth, lower taxes and debts. They mean something to some voters, but a great many people don’t connect with them,” said former UVic political scientist Dennis Pilon, now at York University in Toronto. George Abbott, former B.C. Liberal health minister and selfdescribed “recovering politician,” said health-care costs are a pending crisis in the province, due to the fact people are living longer.

Health-care costs are about $3,300 per year for the average 60-year-old, but $11,600 for an 80-year-old, according to Ministry of Health numbers Abbott presented. B.C. residents lucky enough to live to 90 cost the system more than $22,000 on average each year, he said. “(Health-care spending) is going to be a challenge for the next 10, 20, 30 years. We are going to have to find ways of managing those pressures that we haven’t had before,” he said. Politicians vying to become premier should be talking more about preventative and primary care, such as finding ways to reduce the use of tobacco, Abbott added. “I wish the next government well in meeting this challenge, (but) it’s not going to go away. It’s going to eat into the opportunity to make investments in other social services.” Adrienne Carr, a Vancouver councillor and former B.C. Green leader, said the non-issues in the campaign are global warming, poverty and the larger economic crisis. She said politicians need to find ways to strengthen local economies instead of relying on the global economy for growth. Carr characterized election campaigns as primarily “popularity contests” in which

Women in Need expands services Victoria group hopes to put 100 women through programs Daniel Palmer News staff

Self-sufficiency is one of life’s privileges paid little attention to unless it is lost or under threat. Climbing back from the psychological abyss of an abusive relationship, job loss or drug use is often a shielded journey shared by only those closest to the process. For the past 20 years, Women in Need and its volunteers have quietly celebrated those successes, helping more than 18,000 women in the Capital Region work through trauma and transition. But organizers need community support to expand two successful programs that help women rebuild their lives. “Our goal in 2013 is for 100 women to participate in our programs, and that means raising $100,000 over the next year,” said Clare Yazganoglu, WIN executive director. WIN recently launched its new Transitions program and revamped Self-Sufficiency program. Most of the women who attend the programs are living in transitional housing, Yazganoglu said. Transitions teaches effective communication skills and how to set personal boundaries in

relationships, while Self-Sufficiency provides one-on-one support and financial assistance to women looking to build a career or return to school. “These are women who want to make shifts towards becoming vibrant members in the community,” Yazganoglu said. While WIN maintains strict confidentiality with its clients, “respect,” “integrity” and “grateful” pepper the anonymous comments made by graduates of the programs. “It is one thing to have dreams, but feeling supported and accountable to the generosity of donors in actualizing those dreams is immeasurable,” said

SEPARATING

OIL WATER from

Kyle Slavin News staff

A 16-year-old Saanich student is giving Mother Nature a run for her money by using an innovative science fair project to potentially improve the health of the natural environment. Vicki Kleu spent less than $10 on materials to invent a biodegradable adsorbent pad that could revolutionize clean-up of marine oil spills. “If you go down to the water you can always see a thin film of oil that’s on the water. No one really thinks that small amount is going to damage, they think, ‘It’s a small amount, it’ll be fine.’ No, it harms the ecosystem,” said Kleu, a Grade 11 Lambrick Park secondary student. “It’s a part of protecting our environment that needs to be done.” Her functioning prototype pads – called Oil RiDD’rs – are made of natural fibres and have proven to hold 50 times their weight of outboard motor oil. With Kleu’s design, oil clings to the surface of the pads in a process called adsorption (as

opposed to absorption, where one substance permeates the volume of another substance), allowing at least 95 per cent of the oil to be recovered. “(The pad) could be rolled up, stored – it’s not very big. So it could just get thrown out onto the spill,” Kleu said. “Because the fibres prefer the oil to the water, they don’t let go of the oil – they prefer to hold onto it. It could sit there for a while, even with wave action, and it picks up more oil than water.” Cheryl Nigh, a teacher at Gordon Head middle school, is Kleu’s science fair mentor. She says “the sky’s the limit” for the invention. “This, for me, is going to be the highlight of my career,” Nigh said. “I don’t think I’ll ever come across another science fair student that matches Vicki’s dedication so well. … She was able to step back and look for a simple solution to a big problem. Based on her science knowledge, she was able to see the forest for the trees.” Kleu participated in the Vancouver Island Regional Science

Fair in April at the University of Victoria, and her project earned first place overall (plus nine awards and scholarships). She now heads to the CanadaWide Science Fair in Lethbridge, Alta. beginning next week. She’ll compete against some 500 other bright students for awards, money and prizes. “Vicki’s project is a welldesigned innovation and it’s well tested. And it’s apparent she worked hard at this,” said Randy Enkin, president of the Society for the Advancement of Young Scientists, which organized the VIRSF. Kleu is no stranger to the Canada-Wide Science Fair. This will be her third consecutive year representing Vancouver Island, having previously won a silver medal nationally in 2011. The adsorption materials Kleu used and her exact design remain under lock and key. Kleu and Nigh are currently in the process of patenting the clean-up technology. Once that is complete, they’ll be looking for financial backing to manufacture and market the pads. Kleu isn’t looking to make money off the product – all she wants to do in life is provide solutions that make life better for those around her. “Even if I get nothing out of it, that’s fine. I just want it to be available. I want something available to marinas to use so there’s a method (to clean up oil spills) which is cheap and actually works,” she said. “I like helping people. And I feel like that’s my passion.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

OUR VIEW

Don’t put stock in TV debate Televised political debates in B.C. serve a few purposes. Viewers can see how party leaders engage in spirited discussion, how sincere they seem, how well they know the issues and how party policy relates to those issues. But anyone can click on a political party website to find policy statements, and reams of information can be found on news sites that offer a sense of where individuals stand on certain issues. In essence, then, the TV debate is primarily a chance for leaders to stand before the cameras, without their respective entourages, and prove they deserve to lead the province. Or, in the case of the Greens and Conservatives, that their party deserves your vote. The sad fact is, if one turned off the picture and only listened to the sound portion of Monday’s highly scripted, made-for-TV debate, it could have been mistaken for question period in the B.C. legislature. Frontrunners Christy Clark of the Liberals and Adrian Dix of the NDP frequently spoke over each other’s answers, and on several occasions avoided responding directly to public questions, if at all, choosing instead to repeat party slogans. While both provided moments of calm clarity in the debate, the leaders with no chance of forming government – Jane Sterk of the Green Party and John Cummins of the Conservatives – were merely spectators to the main verbal jousting between the others. Largely absent from debate around the overarching themes of “growing B.C.’s economy” (Clark) and “telling people how we’re going to pay for programs” (Dix) was talk of B.C.’s longtime top voter priorities – health care and education. They may not be the topics du jour for the leaders or their parties, but funding those areas remains a huge challenge and will affect all taxpayers. The bickering-filled program came off more as cheesy reality TV than meaningful discussion about our province’s future. While the debate likely failed to inspire fence-sitters to get out and vote May 14, there are thankfully still opportunities before election day to learn where candidates and their parties stand.

LETTERS B.C. gang police scratching surface Re: Anti-gang police publish first community report (vicnews.com) With the B.C. Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit’s “Go Public” campaign, I breathed a sigh of frustration. Over the last six years there has been a steady increase in gang activities, contrary to the “successes” tooted by the integrated team. And with each bust there is a corresponding rise in the numbers of emerging organized crime groups in the province. The performance and effectiveness of this agency and its partner members also has declined, and alarmingly so, as far as public security is concerned. When I read the limited, but nonetheless colourful explanation of this new idea, I can barely keep my breakfast down. I fail to see just how this taskforce is actually going to stop drive-by shootings.

There is evidence that the intelligence gathering is flawed, and how we don’t deal with the root causes in our community, choosing to throw money at policing instead. The unit is now out to capture a bigger public profile, but so far has removed a drop in an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Kathryn Perry Victoria

Cartoonist off mark on candidate ’toon Usually I enjoy your cartoons, but last Friday’s political cartoon crosses a line. The last I heard, it was the leader of the B.C. Conservatives who had a problem with some of his candidates, not NDP leader Adrian Dix. Hence the cartoon makes no sense. The only thing it does is to increase my dislike of your editorial judgment.

We know how that every possible challenge and turned out. scenario ahead of a four-year Manitobans are watching the term in office, taxpayers want a same movie right now. Before predictable pattern set out. the last election, NDP Premier How would a premier Greg Selinger said, flat-out, that deal with plunging resource he wouldn’t raise the Provincial

revenues? What would happen if a crime wave or a natural disaster struck? What would the premier do if unemployment jumped or a Crown Corporation malfunctioned? Taxpayers need to see a predictable pattern of leadership to know. NDP leader Adrian Dix knows the cornerstone issue for many voters in this campaign is trust. “We will say what we’re going to do, and we will say how we will pay for it,” he said in the televised leaders’ debate April 29. That’s what makes two recent Dix announcements so concerning; he is shifting longheld positions seemingly on a whim. During the spring budget debate, Dix and his NDP team criticized the sale of government assets. “It’s important that we not do something as foolhardy as sell the long-term interests of the province out for the short-term interests of the governing party,”

he said at the time. That comment would have led most taxpayers to predict that Dix opposed asset sales. No wonder his announcement last week that he would like to sell off B.C. Place Stadium came as such a shock. Daryl Walker of the B.C. Government Employees Union was stunned by Dix’s plan. “I guess the fact that they’re simply looking at it, and that there will be an opportunity to have input into it gives us a little more solace, but certainly we’re concerned about the rights of our members,” Walker said. Dix is right to change his tune on this one: if B.C. Place was sold, taxpayers would be far better off; we don’t pay taxes in order to be in the stadium business (or liquor or car insurance or a few other things for that matter). Still, it’s a quick jump away from his longstanding philosophy. The second flip-flop was just

as unpredictable. After months of saying he wouldn’t make any decisions on the Kinder Morgan pipeline until they filed an application, he essentially ruled it out on Earth Day. “I think as a matter of principle, you should actually see what the application is before you address it,” he said on April 11. On April 22, he all but killed it. Political leaders should be able to change their mind as circumstances change, but nothing had changed about asset sales or Kinder Morgan. Is this lack of predictability a harbinger that British Columbians are about to elect another Greg Selinger? With a double-digit lead in the polls, Dix has a clear path to the premier’s office. That seems an easy prediction, unlike his actions of the past few weeks. Jordan Bateman is executive director of the CanadianTaxpayers’ Federation.

Social media experts, newbies flock to Victoria Attendees of three-day ‘camp’ learn best ways to get messages out there Daniel Palmer News staff

Businesses need to be social-media savvy in order to avoid becoming obsolete. That’s the advice from organizer Chris Burdge to the hundreds expected to attend the fourth annual Social Media Camp, starting Monday (May 6) at the Victoria Conference Centre. The three-day event attracts online gurus, and curious business owners from across Canada who hope to learn just what makes online platforms so powerful. “When we first put on the event we really didn’t know what to expect,” said

Burdge, camp co-founder and owner of social media consulting firm bWest Interactive. It turned out the local appetite to learn more was strong, as more than 450 people showed up for the initial conference. Burdge expects at least 600 attendees this year. They’ll hear the likes of keynote speaker Mari Smith, who recently ranked fourth on Forbes Magazine’s top 50 social media power influencers, and marketing pro and author C.C. Chapman. “Social Media Camp appeals to a pretty broad audience,” Burdge said. “We created sessions that appeal to different levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. And this year we’ve got sessions directly

targeted to human resources professionals to look at recruiting, hiring and the legal aspects of using social media in the workplace.” The camp also features social media streams for government, small business, non-profit organizations and general marketing. A highlight of the event is the 2013 Social Media Awards, hosted by TV tech geek Steve Dotto on Tuesday night. Among the award categories are excellence in engagement, excellence in customer service and best personal blog. For more information or to buy tickets, visit socialmediacamp.ca. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Six years into her retirement, it’s starting all over again for Phillipa Hudson.

I always knew I would paint when I got the chance, and now I love it,” Hudson said. Her paintings, which can be seen online at phillipahudson. com, are gaining notice and income, which is not what she expected from the hobby venture. A collection of Hudson’s work, including the original two by three-foot proofs of the three paintings going to the Fairmont at Lake Louise, will be on display at the Eclectic Gallery in Oak Bay, May 6 to June 15.

Then each of the three had to be recreated three times, in similar but slightly different form, until the final selections were made. All are of prominent landscapes from the region: Lake McArthur in Yoho National Park, Mount Rundle in Banff National Park and the Three Sisters above Canmore. Each feature golden fauna from the fall season swaying in the foreground, larch trees, aspens and marshes. “Adjusting to the size of the canvas was easier than I thought it would be,” Hudson said. “Though I did think I was going to be painting them in the garage.” Gracefully, HBA allowed her to scale the height of the canvases down to fivefeet-six-inches from the original six-feet, because they didn’t fit through her studio door. To bring consistency between the three paintings, Hudson limited herself to 12 colours. “One of the things they wanted was vibrancy and colour, a touch of abstract, not totally realistic.” It’s a considerable jump into being a professional painter as Hudson started as an adult and has only been painting since she sold Mineral World six years ago. She’s had to lay out the massive canvases on the same studio tables of her North Saanich home where she crafted jewelry. “I’ve been mountaineering and hiking for decades and always shooting pictures. It’s those which I use for inspiration and to paint from. This is my retirement. I love it. I hope more can come from it.” sports@vicnews.com

innipeg post-punk trio This Hisses unleashed its dark and cinematic sophomore album, Anhedonia, on Feb. 5 with critics swooning over lead Julia Ryckman’s pipes. Now, the band is ready to share its new music and raw live performance with audiences across their home country. Recorded in the spring of

2012, Anhedonia is the follow up to the band’s debut album Surf Noir. The album holds a darkly cinematic, yet decidedly rock n’ roll esthetic, inspired by David Lynch and Wim Wenders as much as by The Stooges and Nick Cave. From songs like Blacksmith, with its condensed punk chords, sweetened by crystalline arpeggios, to the dark murder ballad My Love He Shot A Sparrow, the album

is a collection of songs for the jilted, haunted and sentimental. This Hisses gives a powerful live show as commanding as the music itself. This Hisses play May 4 at The Copper Owl, 1900 Douglas St. with Bloody Wilma, Clunt & The Scrunts and Stolen Organ Family Band. Tickets are $10 at the door, go to copperowl.ca for more information. llavin@vicnews.com

Caleigh Bachop is the captain, a leader and one of the reasons the Mount Douglas Rams track and field team has blown up to 85 members this year. The team isn’t just big, it also stars a large number of contenders in many of the events, including the throwing events, which the Rams’ have struggled with in years past. The Rams are chipping away at Oak Bay High’s monopoly of the Lower Island and Island track and field championships. But Bachop just wants to see her team do its best and draw another 85 athletes out next year, when the Grade 12 student will be in her first year the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on the leadership-based Morehead-Cain Scholarship program. “(Mount Doug’s) goal for track is just maximum participation,” Bachop said. “If everyone comes out and runs their horses off, I’ll be so proud. The momentum is building, if we aim for that title the program will keep going.” Bachop’s specialty is the 800-metre though she’s also an accomplished crosscountry and 1,500m runner too. The 800m is in her blood, so to speak. Her dad, Steve, ran the 1,500m and 800m for the UVic Vikings. Her mom, Cindy, ran the 1,500m and 800m at the University of Alberta. “Getting Mount Doug’s team this big has been a group effort between coach Al Niezen and sponsor teachers,” Bachop said. “We have 12 coaches, a lot of them alumni who’ve come back, and for a team of 85 athletes that’s awesome. Students are coming in who haven’t done any events and there’s a coach for each. Bachop believes the variety of options boosts the numbers.” “About 70 of the track and field athletes show up regularly for training,” Niezen said. “Bachop has been really trying to inspire the team to new heights. She’s talked to the team and is trying to install a positive work ethic, and to try new events.” The Rams are trying to gain points for the Island championship but Niezen is

The Velox Valhallians are on the precipice of returning to the province’s top rugby competition, the CDI Premier League. The Valhallians topped the Nanaimo Hornets 46-20 at home on Saturday to win the Cowichan Cup, Tier 2 Island championship. The Valhallians host the Tier 2 provincial semifinal on Saturday, 3 p.m., against Abbotsford. The winner advances to the B.C. final and a chance at promotion to the eight-team CDI Premier League. “When you look at the club’s history we’ve never won a (men’s) B.C. final,” said first year men’s coach Aaron Frisby. The former Velox premier player coached the Velox Valkyries to the B.C. women’s championship last year. “It’s a big ask but it’s expected of us. When you’re not playing premier rugby the support falls off. It’s hard to get premier quality players when you’re not in the CDI Premier League.” Abbotsford is 11-4-1 in Tier 2 Mainland play this season after being relegated with just one win in 14 CDI matches last season. Velox was relegated in 2011 and has toiled in Tier 2 the past two seasons in the confusingly named Okanagan Brewery League 1. This year Velox played in the Island’s Tier 2 equivalent Cowichan Cup. Velox also played two exhibition games against premier sides, losing to Capilano 19-10 and the Castaway Wanderers 32-12. “Obviously the exhibition scores are not far off, certainly nowhere near some of the lopsided premier scores of late,” Frisby pointed out. The key is getting premier quality players and national level players. Once the door opens, more will follow. Across town, the James Bay and Castaway Wanderers have both benefitted by bringing in national team players who are here training with Rugby Canada. Velox hasn’t had a sniff of Rugby Canada carded players the past three years despite fielding several in the past. “We’re looking at other options, including UVic, which we believe has a lot of premierquality players that don’t get identified because the program is so deep.” Saturday (May 4) is a triple header for Velox men’s rugby as they host a Div. 3 semifinal vs. the Brit Lions at 11:30 a.m. At 1:15 p.m. Velox faces Abbotsford in the Okanagan Brewery League 2 semifinal. sports@vicnews.com

VicSoccer offers players a new option

ANNUAL PUBLIC GENERAL MEETING

Games played at Hampton

Board Chair Lindalee Brougham, on behalf of the Board of Directors, and Geoff Dickson, President and CEO, invite the public to attend the Victoria Airport Authority’s Annual Public General Meeting

Travis Paterson News staff

VicSoccer’s debut as a rec soccer league couldn’t have started on a busier day. The first game was Sunday at 5 p.m., about eight hours after many of the city’s most active residents ran the TC10K. Eighteen players showed up to play the inaugural VicSoccer match at Hampton Park. Not a bad turnout despite the original time being bumped two hours by the Gorge FC women’s provincial B Cup soccer match. “It’s going to take a little time but the word of mouth is getting out there,” said VicSoccer organizer Steve Teska. “The main message we want to spread is that we are not trying to compete or take away from any of the other leagues in the city. We are just giving another option for the players to have a run around.” The next match is Saturday, 3 p.m. at Hampton Park. Signup is online at vicsoccer.ca. “It’s a pretty good response since only a handful of people are promoting it around the city so far,” Teska said. The soccer fanatic is willing to roll with the punches that come with getting a league off the ground, especially one that’s a bit outside the box compared to what the city is used to. “It’s a new concept,” Teska said. “The way it works is there’s no official teams in VicSoccer. Players are competing for themselves and everyone else.” When you sign up you choose a side, possibly with your friend, for example, and your position, which is on a first-come-first-serve basis. “You show up, get your jersey, take your position and you go from there. It’s amazing to see how well the people gel and come together. It’s very interactive and social.” Though it’s new in Victoria the league is based on a proven model, KWSoccer, in Teska’s hometown of Kitchener-Waterloo.

7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, Thursday, May 9, 2013 Mary Winspear Centre, 2243 Beacon Avenue, Sidney (southeast corner of Beacon Avenue and Pat Bay Highway)

Public Comments and Questions Welcome Enquiries: (250) 953-7501 Travis Paterson/News staff

VicSoccer organizer Steve Teska, a former Victoria Highlanders employee, sees a market for a flexible but competitive soccer league in Victoria. “KWSoccer is successfully entering its fourth year with over 2,000 followers, which is about five percent of the soccer community in KitchenerWaterloo,” Teska said. “It takes a while but people come to understand it. Stats are kept online, and prizes go to the top point getters, etc. We are competitive, but it’s a completely new concept and the players learn that.” All 11-a-side matches are officiated as are most nine-a-side matches. Teska plans to host games big and small. “In three years there’s been zero cards issued, not a suspension or ejection, no fights or anything. It’s a respect thing. We know we’re not out to win the World Cup.” VicSoccer is for players 16-and-over and Teska is hoping to add women’s and masters age games, run year-round, and expand to other fields. “With registrants interacting through social media we can do so much. The league is about flexbility. Prices vary but they’re quite reasonable and we provide a true soccer experience.” sports@vicnews.com

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

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

It’s so easy to get started… call

Hike for Hospice

Gardens bring Peace and Comfort

SUSAN LUNDY Black Press

As people lace up their shoes and set off on the second annual Hike for Hospice this Sunday, they’ll be walking together in celebration of those who receive hospice care and those who deliver it. “We see the relationship between Victoria Hospice and the community as a supportive and necessary one,” says Dave Traynor, communications manager of the Victoria Hospice. “We use the phrase ‘we care for the community we depend on.’ And it’s a pleasure to see the community come out to support us.” Check in time for the hike is 9 a.m., May 5, at Fisherman’s Wharf, and the 3.5 kilometre route, winding along Victoria’s scenic waterfront, gets underway at 10 a.m. Registration is at the site or online at www.victoriahospice.org/ hike-for-hospice. The hike gives people a chance to remember loved ones, raise awareness of hospice palliative care in general and promote work done by volunteers and professionals in the field. But it also rasies funds for the Victoria Hospice, a not-for-profit entity, which depends on collecting half of its annual $7 million budget directly from the community through donations. “Without that support, we don’t continue,” says Traynor. More than 150 people (and many four-legged companions) took part in the inaugural event last year. Most of the teams had their own theme, displayed prominently during the colourful “Parade of Teams,” which kicked off the day’s festivities. The Victoria Hike for Hospice is

T

actually part of a larger, national event, organized by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association, as part of National Hospice Palliative Care Week, May 5-11. The national theme — “Canadians are aging. We’ve done the math. Have you?” — encourages professionals, caregivers and the public to advocate for better hospice palliative care . . . especially as the population ages. The local message is similar, says Traynor, “but it’s about the so-called ‘Silver Tsunami’ that is coming.” He adds, “The Boomer demographic is a force of nature that has affected every age group it’s rolled over since World War 2. Awareness of the need for effective end-of-life strategies and programs is growing, and we’re going to see this become a much more public part of the health-care discussion. We believe that Victoria Hospice has a significant role to play, both in being part of the solution (increased availability of hospice care) as well as leading the growth and expertise of end-of-life care, which is about much more than just hospice care. It’s about living well until you die.”

A flourishing rooftop garden is a much-loved feature of Victoria Hospice’s In-Patient Unit at the Richmond Pavillion. “Gardens bring peace and comfort, and the rooftop garden is about having something visual and not clinical as patients and their families take a breather from hospice,” says Kelly Redlin, an organizer of Victoria Hospice’s fundraising Teeny Tiny Garden Tour. “Gardens are life affirming.” “Gardens and hospice care have strong links,” adds Dave Traynor, also of Victoria Hospice. The rooftop garden was part of the inspiration to launch an annual fundraising garden tour — coming up on Sunday, June 9. The eighth annual event promises to be as popular, fun and informative as ever. Participants will visit 14 small gardens, including a rose lovers’ haven, a garden that successfully works around rock, a water feature garden, and a garden that includes two beehives amid a miniature Garry Oak ecosystem. The decision to focus on small, mostly backyard gardens sets this garden tour apart from others in Victoria. “The name comes from the contrast between the gardens on our tour, which are usually in people’s back yards, and not something like Butchart, or large, multi-acre set-ups,” says Traynor. “But each one is unique and there’s always something special about them. The group of volunteers that organize the tour each year are passionate about their own gardens and they love to highlight those extraspecial ones they find in their travels.” An added feature this year will be inclusion of a master gardener available to answer questions at two of the locations. Tickets for the June 9 event can be purchased at Thrifty Foods locations, Dig This or the Victoria Hospice Thrift Boutique, at 1315 Cook St.

Victoria Hospice is a registered charity that provides end-of-life care, offered in patients’ homes, or within the hospice’s 17-bed in-patient unit. It also provides medical consultation to patients in other health care facilities. Hospice staff and trained volunteers offer comfort for patients and support for their families, rather than attempting to cure progressive and life-limiting illness. Donations to Victoria Hospice can be made online at www.VictoriaHospice.org.

Car show brings big surprise for cousin Aldergrove vintage fire truck restorer and collector Brian Beard met his cousin Buck Slater at the Abbotsford Airport on Saturday, April 20 after his arrival on a flight from ALYN EDWARDS Edmonton. CLASSIC They walked across RIDES the parking lot to the BC Classic and Custom Car Show at the Tradex Centre to meet a group of car craftsmen and artisans. The Metro Vancouver Firefighters Band marched them in as they walked toward a vehicle under a car cover. Buck, an Alberta rancher and heavy equipment operator, had never met any of them but they were about to unveil his dream machine – the hot rod he always wanted. The chain of events began half a century ago when cousins Buck Slater and Brian Beard were teenagers growing up on farms outside Fort Saskatchewan in Northern Alberta. Buck’s first car was a bulbous fat fender 1938 Dodge sedan with suicide doors. “Cousin Buck was a wild child and I remember driving with him going in and out of ditches mowing down mail boxes,” Brian recalls. At the age of 18, Brian factory ordered a 1967 Mercury 4X4 pickup truck which became his pride and joy. But Buck ended up with the truck on the farm when Brian began studying engineering in Edmonton and could no longer afford the payments. Buck ran the truck hard on the farm and eventually parked the remains by the equipment shed where it remained

Six years ago, Buck called Brian to say he was going to give him back the truck “in the condition you gave it me.” Buck had the truck completely restored to show standards and shipped it to Brian’s Fraser Valley home east of Vancouver. Brian was overwhelmed. “I wanted to do something for Buck that would be very special in his life,” Brian says. “Buck never had the time or patience to build a hot rod but he always

Ford and Schaeffler demonstrate eWheelDrive project Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

Ford and technology partner Schaeffler have demonstrated a Fiesta-based eWheelDrive research car, powered by independent electric motors in both rear wheels in place of a conventional engine.

Ford Motor Company and its technology partner Schaeffler demonstrated the Fiesta-based eWheelDrive car, a drivable research vehicle that could lead to improvements in urban mobility and parking by making possible smaller, more agile cars. Powered by independent electric motors in each of the rear wheels, eWheelDrive technology offers space under the bonnet that in conventional cars is occupied by the engine and transmission, and in electric cars by a central motor. This technology could in the future support the development of a four-person car that only occupies the space of a two-person car today.

At the same time, eWheelDrive steering system designs could enable vehicles to move sideways into parking spaces – a potential breakthrough as cities become more populated and congested. With in-wheel motors, the components required for drive, deceleration and driver assistance technologies are installed in an integrated wheel hub drive – including the electric motor, braking and cooling systems. Many industry experts see in-wheel electric motors as a potentially important future technology enabler for city cars as the world becomes more crowded and urbanized. It is projected that by 2050 the number of people living in cities globally will have increased from 3.4 billion to 6.4 billion, and the number of cars worldwide will have increased fourfold.

When he thought of his cousin as being “wild in his day,” he came up with “Buck Wild.” So he had a logo designed with a buck’s head sewn into the yellow and black seat covers by upholsterer Brent Sidon. The crowning touch is the work of airbrush artist Maella Ginn.

Brian had met her at a previous Tradex classic car show and asked her to come up with a design to be airbrushed on the hot rod’s trunk. He gave her a photograph of a deer from the internet. “She told me that would be better for a motor home from the 1970s,” Brian says. Maella came up with her own design and the resulting artwork has blown everyone away. The airbrushed name ‘Buck’ alongside the moon has been overlaid with a deer with full antlers that spells the word ‘Wild’ when closely examined. Beneath is the deer skull. “The moon means transition and the deer symbolizes the young Buck. The skull speaks of older quieter times,” Maella says of her design. “The car project is so inspiring and definitely shows how the family and community can come together to build a dream.” New friendships have formed with the car project. “None of us had met this fellow and, to do this for someone you haven’t met means it’s much bigger than just the car,” says hot rod builder Gary Wright. Brian concurs, saying “everyone performed to the highest standard. This is as nice a hot rod as you will find.” Buck Slater was almost speechless. “I’m flabbergasted and shocked,” he said as the cover came off the car to cheers from the builders and strangers attending the show who had gathered for the event. “It fulfills a dream that I’ve had all

my life. I have wanted a car like this since I was a boy.” Buck has plans for this special car. He’s extra pleased that, despite the top being chopped, he can still wear his Stetson. “When I get the car home, I’m going to pick up my favourite lady and go for a trip,” he said enthusiastically.
