Heavy workload plagues doctors Emergency room physicians at NRGH working more than full time to keep up with demand By ToBy gorman ThE NEwS BULLETiN

GREG SAKAKI/ThE NEwS BullETIN

Write on

Author Roch Carrier, who wrote the classic Canadian children’s story The Hockey Sweater, autographs a book for 11-year-old Ava Hoechsmann at Diana Krall Plaza at Bookfest 2013 on Saturday. Hoechsmann, from St. Michael’s University School in Victoria, was in town as part of a class trip.

An already beleaguered emergency department staff at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital will face increased workloads at the end of the month with the announcement of a doctor leaving the rotation. The departure means an additional 30 shifts per month that may not be filled by an ER doctor indefinitely. “We’re hoping some people can pick up some extra shifts if they’re willing to do that but otherwise we’ll be short,” said Dr. Drew Digney, emergency department chief at NRGH. “It’s a bit tricky because we’re already working full-time, well, more than full-time in most cases. We’re given a certain number of full-time employees to staff a department but that number hasn’t gone up in three years despite the fact [ER patient] volume has gone up significantly, somewhere between 15 and 20 per cent.” In 2011 at NRGH, ER visits amounted to 53,534. That increased to 57,400 in 2012. An extra shift, which required a cut in pay and heavier workload for NRGH ER doctors, had already been put in to meet that demand. That increased workload, said Digney, has caused “critical stress” and has resulted in one doctor leaving. By voluntarily taking on

increased workloads and decreased pay, he said it will be difficult to attract any doctors to join the rotation. “We’re not competitive with anybody else,” said Digney. “But we’re doing our best to look after our patients. Temporarily we’re going to keep it going with the hopes that eventually somebody will have enough smarts to do the right thing.” He added the lost shift may never return without funding. With an upcoming provincial election, increased funding or even an attempt to solve the problem through the Health Ministry is not likely any time soon. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid has already stated no direct funding for more doctors is coming, though the government has negotiated a $90-million physician master agreement with the B.C. Medical Association. About $20 million is slated for new services, which can be used to address emergency room concerns if the association chooses. Across the province, doctors have been asking for $10 million to address ER staff shortages as patient use increases. Emergency room doctors across the province have gone public with the challenges they are facing at www.bcemergency care.com. The website is a forum for doctors to vent some frustration and give the public an inside look as to the challenges they face on a daily basis. u See ‘OTHER’ /5

Canada’s new $5 and $10 polymer notes are literally out of this world. Canadian Space Agency Astronaut and International Space Station commander Chris Hadfield helped public officials unveil the new notes from his perch more than 350 kilometres above the Earth’s surface last week. Hadfield had managed to keep the new bills a secret for four months despite numerous earthly media engagements – he gave Canadians their first glimpse at the $5 polymer note, which features the Canadarm2, via satellite. The front of the bill features a portrait of Sir Wilfred Laurier, Prime Minister from 1896-1911. “I try to inspire young Canadians to aim high. This new $5 bill should do the same,” said Hadfield while letting the

bill float in front of him. “By giving prominence to Canadian achievements in space, this bank note reminds us that not even the sky is the limit.” Chairman of VIA Rail Canada, Paul G. Smith, unveiled the $10 note at the Bank of Canada. The new bill features an image of the train winding through the Rocky Mountains, representing a feat of engineering that linked Canada’s east and west by rail. Former Prime Minister John A. Macdonald, who led the country when the railway was completed, is featured on the front. “Not only did the railway contribute to Canada’s economic prosperity by moving people and goods across this vast land, but it also gave Canadians the means to seek new frontiers of their own,”

said Smith. The new $5 and $10 bills will begin circulation in November. They join the $20, $50 and $100 polymer notes already being used by Canadians. Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney said the new polymer bills incorporate the latest in security technology while lasting 2.5 times longer than traditional cotton-based paper bank notes. He said that with sophisticated transparency and holography, the new polymer series bills are the most secure bank notes ever issued by the Bank of Canada. Like the previous polymer denominations, the Bank of Canada will work with financial institutions, retailers, and manufacturers of bank note-handling equipment to ensure a smooth transition.

Nanaimo man injured in Washington crash A Nanaimo man was listed in satisfactory condition at Olympic Medical Center Friday after the Mazda crossover he was driving collided with an SUV on U.S. Highway 101 at Blue Mountain Road. The State Patrol said John G. Helmn, 67, was driving eastbound when the Mazda crashed into a Toyota Highlander driven by Margarethe

Purviance, 66, about seven miles east of Port Angeles at noon Friday. Troopers said Purviance, of Port Angeles, was turning left from the westbound lanes onto Blue Mountain Road and did not see Helmn’s oncoming vehicle. The State Patrol said Helmn swerved to the right to avoid the impact but was hit on the

driver’s side of his vehicle. Purviance, who was not injured, was cited for failure to yield right of way. Both drivers were wearing their seat belts. Drugs or alcohol were not suspected as a cause. The Mazda was completely destroyed and the sport utility vehicle sustained reportable damage.

Nanaimo News Bulletin 3

Bikers face tickets after weekend ride Motorcycle club members could be ticketed after memorial ride through Cowichan More than 100 suspected outlaw motorcycle-gang members could be ticketed for allegedly failing to obey police commands to pull over during Saturday’s Island Highway check-stop north of Duncan, police say. Sgt. Lindsey Houghton of B.C.’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit said 150-plus members of clubs — including the Hell’s Angels, Jesters, and Devil’s Army — were intercepted at around 2:15 p.m. outside North Cowichan municipal hall by “a few dozen” officers during the clubs’ annual Zeke Ride. “They hold this ride at the same time every year, and we had information they’d be riding today,” he said. The southbound cruise of roaring Harley Davidsons was a memorial for Edward (Zeke) Mickle, a former president of Nanaimo’s Hells Angels’ chapter, who disappeared 20 years ago, he explained. Bikers who allegedly failed to stop will be traced and ticketed through police photos, and digital movie footage, of their licence plates. Tickets for failing to obey a police officer could span $150 to $200 each, he said. Another spokesperson said some bikers could face other charges, such as running red lights, after the column left Nanaimo’s Hell’s Angels’ clubhouse and headed south. The bikers, some wearing

club colours on black jackets, reached the North Cowichan road-check, then allegedly blocked the highway by stopping their bikes and cutting the engines, a spokesperson said. Some members spoke with police, then some riders pulled over at the special stop check marked by orange cones, flanked by officers in yellow safety clothing. Other bikers continued riding south. A dog-squad stood by the stoppoint dominated by a commandpost vehicle. An RCMP helicopter also circled the scene, and landed later beside the Somenos Marsh. “Aside from refusing to follow instructions from police officers, there was no violence,” Houghton said. One Hell’s Angels’ member, and one from Surrey’s Jesters club, complied politely when police asked for their documents. Houghton painted a wider picture of outlaw-club members. “These are people recognized as some of the most violent in our society,” he said of member activities including murder, extortion, drug trafficking and other crimes. Saturday’s refusal to stop stems from some bikers wanting “to thumb their nose at laws, and civil society,” he said. The special enforcement unit boasted cops from some 14 agencies, spanning Mounties to city officers, and others. – Black Press

National Geographic’s Sea Bird stopped in Nanaimo for a few hours last week. The ship and its sister vessel Sea Lion each carry 62 passengers and are the only pocket cruise ships to visit Nanaimo this year. Seven other visits by large cruise ships from Norwegian Cruise Line and Celebrity Cruises have scheduled visits for this year’s spring and fall shoulder seasons. Shifting markets could bring more summer cruise traffic in 2014.

Shifting business helps cruise ship market By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Ocean cruise line companies charting courses to new markets could mean more cruise ship visits for Nanaimo. Even with a new multimillion dollar cruise ship dock and and terminal in Nanaimo Harbour, the number of cruise ship visits scheduled for Nanaimo this summer remain in the single digits with just two pocket cruise ships from National Geographic stopping by in May and only four visits scheduled by ships from Celebrity Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line scheduled for all of May and three stops in September. The National Geographic pocket cruise ship Sea Bird spent several hours tied up in Nanaimo Harbour Thursday before moving on to Haida Gwaii and Alaska. It’s sister ship Sea Lion stopped over earlier in the week. Nine visits is a reduction from the 20-25 visits targeted by the Nanaimo Port Authority for the summer of 2015,

A new focus is going towards Asia, which is a good thing for us.

but Bernie Dumas, Nanaimo Port Authority president and CEO, said shifting markets in the cruise line business worldwide could help meet that goal. Dumas said cruise lines that have faced difficulties operating in Mexico are redeploying their ships to other markets. “A new focus is going towards Asia, which is a good thing for us because if they do an Asia season, those ships have to be deployed again after that season,” Dumas said. Short duration Pacific Northwest cruise packages could prove lucrative for carriers and communities they visit. Shorter duration

cruises mean higher passenger turnover and better returns. “If you go to Miami or Fort Lauderdale, you can do a lot of these two-, three-, four-day cruises and they’re getting a better return, of course they’re getting more people on and off,” Dumas said. Short duration, Pacific Northwest cruises could start in 2015 and could leave from Seattle, Wash., with stops in B.C. before going down to places like Astoria, Ore., and other U.S. stops. Other carriers that have moved away from B.C./ Alaska cruises are considering reviving those which could also mean more summertime cruise ship visits for Nanaimo. “Each of these carriers have about five, six or seven ships in their pool and each of these ships do about 20 calls through the season,” Dumas said. “If we get one dedicated ship to call on us in that rotation we can get our volume quite easily and then these repositioning ships which are in the spring and the fall.” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Extreme science on display Explosions, implosions, flying arrows, fire, lightning and illusions – these are some of the exciting things planned for the fifth annual Extreme Science show. The startling and occasionally loud science demonstration will entertain more than 1,200 school students in four shows in Nanaimo May 14-17. “It’s going to be a fun, entertaining hour of extreme science for a worthwhile cause,” said Vancouver Island University physics professor Ray Penner, who stars in the show with faculty from the physics and chemistry departments and two students. Extreme Science is a popular spring fundraiser for LED Africa, a charity started by Penner in 2008. The organization aims to provide solar-powered lighting systems and other assistance to rural secondary schools in Malawi, Africa. Penner devel-

oped a connection with Malawi when he taught there 20 years ago. “Many of the rural secondary schools in Malawi have evening study sessions where they use kerosene lighting,” he said. “These sessions are typically sporadic both because of the cost and the limited availability of kerosene. In addition, the smoke from the kerosene lanterns causes health concerns.” Penner and his colleagues from the University of Malawi set up a test system at a school using energy efficient LED lights powered by a solar panel on the roof. The total power required for a 50-student classroom is about 40 watts, which keeps expenses low. After a positive response from the test school, Penner created the LED Africa charity. Lighting systems were installed in classrooms at three schools in 2009. Since then a total

of 17 schools have received the lighting system with the help of technicians from the University of Malawi. The cost to set up a classroom is $1,200, with two classroom systems being installed at each school. The single solar panel, the battery, and cables which are required for each classroom are purchased from suppliers within Malawi. The battery box, which holds the battery and the controls, as well as the stands for the LED lanterns are built by local Malawian carpenters. The lanterns are all assembled by Malawians. This year the money raised by ticket sales is going towards buying textbooks for rural secondary schools. Penner adds the Extreme Science show is a lot of fun for VIU faculty because “it’s rewarding to get kids excited about science.” A public show takes place May 16 in the Malaspina Theatre at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and available from Kool and Child on Bowen Road.

Other provinces adjust funding

CHRIS BUSH/THe NewS BUlleTIN

Coast to coast course

Brian Godfrey, front left, and Bob Wilson of Nanaimo set out on Estevan Road April 30, bound for Victoria to start the first leg of their journey across Canada May 1 to raise donations for B.C. Children’s Hospital and for dementia programs at Nanaimo Travellers Lodge. Their 7,300-kilometre cross-country trek, Coast to Coast for Kids, will finish in St. John’s, Nfld., July 22. The ride’s progress, with updates from Godfrey and Wilson, is posted on the News Bulletin’s Facebook page. Wilson will blog about the journey at www. crazyguyonabike.com/bobbriancoast2coast. For more information or to make donations, please visit the Re/Max of Nanaimo website at www.remaxofnanaimo.com.

u From /1 One NRGH doctor, Kevin McMeel, expressed his frustration on camera after an extended shift earlier this year. “My shift started at six in the evening and was supposed to end at 2 a.m.,” said a tired-looking McMeel. “It’s now 5 a.m. and I’m standing outside the newest emergency room in the province that we opened in October. It was built about three times the size of the last one, bigger because we’re seeing way more patients. Despite that we don’t have any extra staff.” McMeel continues to say he arrived for his shift to “a sea of people” waiting for attention, and one patient who waited for 5.5 hours had a seizure before he could be assessed.

The website gives the NRGH ER department a failing grade for overcrowding and understaffing. Digney said other provinces employ successful staffing models that adjust funding every six months based on patient visits. “We don’t do that here in B.C.,” he said. “You have to have a big fight every time you have to do anything. The solution here is they say we’ve got a pot of money and we should just reallocate it, so take it from another department. That’s not a really good idea.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

ForESt dryiNg out quickly, putting officials on alert. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

The good news is Nanaimo broke a high temperature record on the weekend, but the bad news is wildfire hazard is climbing. Nanaimo hit 28.6 C Sunday, an all-time high temperature record for May 5. Great weather and prospects of the early onset of summer are good news for everyone wanting to hit the beaches or their favourite campsites, but rapidly drying conditions in recent weeks have staff at the B.C. Coastal Fire Centre keeping a close eye on soil dryness and humidity levels. Donna MacPherson, Coast Fire Centre fire information officer, said there are, so far, no backyard burning prohibitions in place in rural areas, but there have already been seven wildfires in the B.C. south coast region. “All of those were human-caused because we haven’t had any lightning,” MacPherson said. Dry, hot, breezy days will rapidly suck the moisture and humidity out of ground cover. Just a few days of dry,

warm weather have already raised the fire danger rating to “moderate” in the Nanaimo region. “That is something to be concerned about,” MacPherson said. “This hot weather that we’ve had has dried things out pretty fast, especially all the little crinkly stuff on top of the ground, like the leaves and twigs.” MacPherson said to be sure and check with local bylaws for any burning restrictions and to do backyard and camp fires “right.” “Right place, right size, be right by it and then put it out right,” she said. David Jones, Environment Canada meteorologist, said Sunday’s high temperature beat the previous record of 27.2 C set on May 5, 1966. “This weather is unusual, in the last couple of years, in that we just haven’t had warm weather early like this,” Jones said. “Which is fantastic because it looks like we could get a fourmonth summer. There’s no way to tell that, but an early start’s good. “We’re good for the next week. We’ll see after that. No doubt the weather will turn snotty at some point. It usually does in June, but we have good Junes, too, so here’s hoping.” Looking back 90 days, Jones said rainfall has been close to normal for the south Island, drier for

Parksville-Qualicum

Parksville-Qualicum Conservative candidate David Coupland said he is running because he believes that for upcoming generations to have a strong, prosperous future, the province needs to have a strong, trustworthy government. “I believe we need better government than what we have now,” said Coupland, the father of three university-aged children. “Future generations deserve a future full of opportunity and success and I’ve come to realize that without better government this will not happen.” Coupland completed his bachelor of science and medi-

cal doctorate at the University of Alberta before finishing his rotating internship at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria. He later completed his radiology and nuclear medicine residency at the University of British Columbia. He currently works as a radiologist at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and Madrona Imaging Inc. He says the issues he feels are a priority for people in his constituency include finding a balance between the economy and the area’s abundant natural resources while preserving and protecting the environment. “It’s a very delicate balance but we believe we have to do both and we feel B.C. can be both an environmental and economic superpower and that is the way forward,” he said. Coupland currently serves as a board director for the Vancouver Island University Foundation, volunteers at the 7-10 Club and NRGH Foundation.

Parksville-Qualicum Liberal candidate Michelle Stilwell is used to being in races, and winning them. A Paralympic champion in track and basketball events in 2000, 2008 and most recently at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London – she is the only female Paralympic athlete to win gold in two separate summer events and holds several world records

NDP candidate Barry Avis will draw on his nine years of experience as a councillor in Qualicum Beach to represent his constituents in Victoria if elected May 14. Wi t h m u n i c i p a l responsibilities that included planning, finance, water management, environment and community development, the 66-year-old grandfather said he is well equipped to handle the issues in the provincial legislature. “I really enjoy working with people and policies and improving our province ... and having been on council for a couple of years I was lucky enough to get nomi-

nated to the Association of Vancouver Island Coastal Communities, where I worked on behalf of all the mayors, regional directors and councillors with our concerns and resolutions with the provincial government,” said Avis. In his constituency, issues including health care, seniors care, and the environment are topics he is hearing most about from voters lately. Prior to his career as a politician, Avis was a manager for two major pharmaceutical and technology companies. He said that experience has helped him gain insightful knowledge into the bottom-line approach, while his public career has helped him understand the social side of the ledger. Organizations Avis has had a long association with include Coalwatch, a group keeping an eye on the proposed Raven Mine; Streamkeepers; and Oceanside Communities for Quality Education.

involved in both federal and provincial campaigns behind the scenes, and has sat on several boards, committees and panels, all with the ability to advocate for the people concerned about the issues she was addressing. Key issues she has heard from voters going door-to-door over the past few weeks are the need to control spending

while at the same time providing adequate health-care services. In June, the Oceanside Health Care Centre is scheduled to open, one of several health facilities in which the Liberal government has invested more than $8 billion to ensure B.C. residents’ health needs are met. The Liberals have also promised an additional $2.3 billion in health care spending.

EDITORIAL

Feds following 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 been at the front of that title. The spring report is the result of a performance audit designed to identify “… how well government is managing its activities, responsibilities, and resources.” 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? During tax time Canadians must provide proof of income and expenses to ensure they’re following rules to keep the economy humming along. Why are the feds using 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, 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 Z. 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. The question needs to be asked: How well is the government managing activities, responsibilities and resources in this case? In a word: badly.

In fact, the most fun I’ve had on Facebook recently is the night a friend and I carried on hours of conversation using nothing but Hannibal Lecter quotes from Silence of the Lambs. I’m finding Facebook is offering less intellectual stimulation – even at its lowest, creepiest level – these days. Maybe it’s because I expect too much from it. Social media has been credited with everything from revolutionizing advertising to perpetuating revolution and social upheaval. Humorist, speaker and social critic Brandon Mendelson argues in his book Social Media is Bullshit, that Facebook and Twitter were not primary drivers behind world movements like the ‘Arab Spring’ and that, in fact, people shied away from using social media fearing government clamp-downs on the Internet and reprisals against users. There have been numerous reports over the last year or so about Facebook users by the millions dropping out or just taking a break for a few months. Why? In a survey published by U.S.-based Pew Research Centre, people polled commented that they were “… tired of stupid comments …” or “… I had crazy friends….” Hmm … makes me wonder if I’m part of the problem. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Multiplex idea just ‘madness’ To the Editor,

Re: No multiplex on my dime, thank you, Opinion, April 27. I, and a great many Nanaimoites, agree with Chris Hamlyn’s column. Council entertaining to build a taxpayerfunded multiplex is not merely poorly conceived, but utter madness in light of past failures with taxpayer-funded ventures in this town. On top of that, council is blind to the current state of taxes in our town and the fragile state of the global economy. I find myself seething at how supposedly knowledgeable and experienced members of the public, now elected members of our council, cannot see the logic and reason for our present situation. Everyone I speak to seems to hold an opinion similar to mine – our taxes and service rates increase by leaps and bounds each year, yet city council and management is still wasting public funds on hairbrained schemes. The only explanation I can think of for their behaviour is an overwrought sense of political correctness

and workplace civility. Where every proposal and idea put forth is greeted with words of encouragement and nods of approval. No matter how bad the idea, or how terrible the writing, no one dares state the obvious. With respect to taxpayer dollars, however, we simply can’t afford a council packed with yes-men and women. We need people who will question everything, and call things as they really are. I sincerely hope those members of council still nodding in approval to this ridiculous multiplex idea will come to their senses before too long. We’ve already wasted hard earned dollars on that toxic waste dump of a property, and my grandmother always said “there’s no sense throwing away good money after bad.” Brendan Millbank Nanaimo

Take on welfare insults recipient To the Editor,

Re: NDP platform is borrow and spend, B.C. Views, May 2.

Got an opinion? MaiL: Letters, Nanaimo News Bulletin, 777 Poplar St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9S 2H7 Fax: 250-753-0788 E-MaiL: editor@nanaimobulletin.com

I don’t like what Tom Fletcher has to say about welfare recipients. When Gordon Campbell was in we received two raises in our welfare payments, both at election time as if to say ‘I want your vote.’ It would be nice to receive $20 more a month and be able to eat a little better. Try living on welfare that is way below the poverty line. The government gives single people $375 for rent and you can’t even get a room for that. I’m married and we receive $570 for rent and our rent is $655. So we have to pay $85 out of our living allowance. Everyone on welfare has to pay out of their living allowance for rent unless they are in low-income housing. Some people on welfare can’t even afford to eat because most, if not all, of their money goes to rent. The poverty line for a couple is $25,000,

and we receive less than $18,000 a year. I’m offended at Fletcher saying, “As with welfare, increasing support for bad choices can only yield more bad choices.” What bad choices is Fletcher talking about? We make a budget every month and we stick to it. Most welfare recipients spend their money in less than a week with no bills paid and no food in the house. We don’t do street drugs, smoke, drink or gamble. We are careful with our disability welfare and have to budget down to the penny to be able to live, eat and pay bills the whole month through. Some months we have to make the money stretch farther because we have to wait five weeks until we get paid. No margin for error, but we pay our bills in full every month. It sounds to me Fletcher doesn’t like

To the Editor,

Re: Teachers derail two-week break, May 2. Those parents and kids who are “disappointed” that there won’t be a two-week March break are misguided. Most parents I’ve spoken to are against the idea of a longer break. I think both the teachers and the trustees agree a twoweek spring break is disruptive to the children academically. It would be best not to cut class time at all, but why can the school year not start a week later in September when the weather is good and it does not interfere with the academic learning of the students?

CANNIE VISION • HEARING EAR • SPECIAL SKILLS • SEIZURE RESPONSE • AUTISM ASSISTANCE • DIABETIC ALERT

By Dave Witty There are a number of reasons why Nanaimo may want to engage in the emerging Successful City dialogue. There’s a chance to advance its economical, environmental and social agendas, a chance to raise the profile and importance of the built-environment and cultural considerations in that dialogue, a chance to reach out to all aspects of the community to engage in conversations, a chance to raise awareness about the important considerations that shape wellbeing and quality of life in our city, and a chance to reflect on its future from a broad multi-dimensional perspective. Anyone of those reasons is worthy of some effort. But, combined, they provide a compelling case for advancing the Successful City agenda. Recently, a news item noted the City of Nanaimo, Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce and Van-

The nomination process can be found at: http://inspire nanaimo.ca/nominations. It is anticipated individuals will be appointed for two years, meet once per month and engage with the broader community.

AND ENTERTAINMENT

Artist shares her journey back into the stage’s spotlight after struggles with scoliosis made her set dancing aside BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

M

artha Carter lost her spirit of dance inside the scar along her spine. Doctors cut her open, fused her spine, and inserted metal rods and bolts to correct the curvature when she was a teenager. After the surgery the doctors told her she was fine, but she wasn’t. Endowed with a dancer’s passion she pursued the art form, despite her body’s limitations. Every day she was surrounded by top-notch professionals and was aware she couldn’t dance like them. Her difficulties were invisible to outside observers. Her dance psyche continued to ebb away. She tried to hide her scoliosis, denied to deal with it, but that path led her to abandon dancing in the spotlight. “I lost track of the spirit,” said Carter. “I stopped dancing over the years. I couldn’t handle the difficulties my back presented.” But her passion for the art form never died. She took another path and delved into choreography and production. For 21 years she pursued this avenue and then one day she woke up and said ‘no more’. She found a surgeon to remove the rods. “ M y body was in rough shape,” she said. As part of her reha-

bilitation she started dancing again. She always knew she wanted to tell her story of the struggles she faced and always thought she would write a book, but it soon evolved into a dance piece. “It’s a personal story that traces my struggle over the years, the juxtaposition of me wanting to be a dancer even though I had a crooked spine,” said Carter. “I had to come out of my scoliosis closet, having done that I was able to free my authentic dancer.” It took Carter time to uncover the story she wanted to tell. At first she presented the piece with four other dancers, which represented her alter egos. The piece evolved into Twisted: Solo, which shows at Nanaimo’s Malaspina Theatre Saturday (May 11) at 7:30 p.m. “It’s a universal story of transformation and getting over obstacles,” said Carter. She began to realize that dance can come from all types of bodies. “You can dance any way you want, express yourself physically in the way your body allows you to,” said Carter. People with scoliosis began to approach Carter and discuss their experiences with the disease. It led her to create the Twisted Outreach Project for Backcare and Scoliosis, where she offers classes, workshops and other outreach activities. “It’s nice to think our artwork can be relevant in such a direct way,” said Carter. Meridian, a multimedia performance created by Vancouver Island University faculty and artists, is also being performed during the evening. Tickets are $20/ $18 members/ $12 students and are available from Lobelia’s Lair, House of Indigo, Arbutus Music or online at www. crimsoncoastdance.org. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

RUTH KATHERINE TINGLEY

February 13, 1926 – April 26, 2013 Ruth passed away suddenly at NRGH at the age of 87. She was predeceased by her husband, Harold; 8 siblings, and best friends, Yvonne and Win.

She loved taking care of her family, enjoyed designing and sewing her own clothing, working in her flower garden and is well known for her delicious cakes.

A Celebration of Life, with refreshments to follow, will be held on Saturday, May 11th at 2pm at the German Cultural Centre, 71 Caledonia Avenue, Nanaimo. Flowers are gratefully declined in favour of donations, in Ruth’s name, to the BC Lung Association or a charity of your choice. Sands ~ Nanaimo 250-753-2032

Surrey wins Westerns, Nanaimo’s season ends I BROOKS ALSO going to RBC tournament.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Hockey fans in Nanaimo got to be a part of Western Canada Cup history. The inaugural tournament ended Sunday after nine days of intense hockey at Frank Crane Arena. The Surrey Eagles are champions and the Brooks Bandits are runners-up. As for the Nanaimo Clippers, they were good enough to compete at Westerns, but they weren’t good enough to advance. The city’s junior A hockey club saw its season come to an end Saturday afternoon with a 5-3 loss to the Yorkton Terriers. “Obviously we’re disappointed…” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach. “We played hard this week and we had a good week here at the tournament. It had its ups and downs, it had a little bit of everything. It was kind of the story of our entire season, all balled up in one week.” With the score 3-3 m i d w a y t h ro u g h the third period, the Clippers put together a series of good shifts and just

sistency that cost us our season in the end,” he said. “And that’s something that all the other teams that are here have, is consistency.” So the Clippers’ 40th anniversary season won’t end with a storybook run to the Royal Bank Cup. “That was a goal we were striving for all year…” Fitzgerald said. “It would have been special, with this group of guys, especially.”

B.C.’s best team is also Western Canada’s best. The Surrey Eagles won the Western Canada Cup on Saturday night in Nanaimo, defeating the Brooks Bandits 4-1 at Frank Crane Arena. “At the beginning of the season, if you asked me if we would have won, it wouldn’t have crossed my mind,” said Demico Hannoun, Surrey’s player of the game. “But it’s a great feeling right now.” The B.C. Hockey League champions calmly killed off a number of penalties and continued to build a lead on the Alberta champs as the game progressed. Jordan Klimek, Hannoun, Drew Best and Craig Wyszomirski scored for the Eagles with Cam Maclise responding for the Bandits. Shots ended up 41-30 in favour of Brooks as Surrey goalie Michael Santaguida had another strong game. Brett Mulcahy, Eagles captain, lifted the Western Canada Cup trophy in celebration after the game, and indeed the Eagles had much to celebrate – the victory gave them a berth in the Royal Bank Cup national championships in Summerside, P.E.I. “It’s pretty exciting winning anything, for that matter, but it’s just another stepping stone for us,” Mulcahy said. “We’ll enjoy it … but get refocused for the next few days and take a crack at the RBC Cup.”

missed the net on a point-blank chance. The play went to the other end of the ice and the Terriers were able to bang home the winning goal past Clippers goalie Jayson Argue. “That’s just the way it went,” Vandekamp said. “They came down and threw one at the net from the corner. We had the better chance but they worked hard to get their goal.” Shots ended up 41-35 for the Terriers,

with Chris Rygus, Greg Fraser and Josh Bryan scoring for the Shipmen. “I don’t think we were quite as consistent as we wanted to be,” said Trevor Fitzgerald, Clippers captain. “A couple breakdowns, but that happens in the game of hockey. We needed to be better, more consistent, more mature.” Brock Maschmeyer, the Clippers’ player of the game, said afterward that there

are no regrets. “We came out to win and didn’t get the … results I wish we could have,” he said. “I believe we could have taken every single team. It just [depended] whether or not we were going to show up that day.” Fitzgerald, too, felt his team was right there with the best in Western Canada. “We played good hockey for the majority of the tournament, but it’s con-

Inbrief Pirates can’t supply enough run support sports

Acme T-men win first game The Nanaimo Acme Timbermen were winners in their home opener, as the Valley Rebels’ tactics didn’t work. The Acme Painting Timbermen defeated the Rebels 9-5 Saturday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre to start the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association season. “It took the first period to get our defensive bearing, figure out where we’re supposed to be and from that point on we played really well,” said Shawn Swanson, Timbermen general manager. The score was 4-4 after one period, then early in the second the Rebels asked for an equipment measurement on Nanaimo goalie Danny Walters. Walters was ejected, but Pat Mallough was excellent in relief. Jon Diplock led the senior B T-men with three goals. Next action for the Acme Timbermen is Friday (May 10) in West Vancouver against the North Shore Indians. The team then plays at the NIC the next night, hosting the Royal City Capitals at 5:45 p.m.

Hornets women second in B.C. The Nanaimo Hornets women were second best in B.C. this rugby season. The Nanaimo RFC ladies lost in the B.C. Rugby Union’s Div. 1 championship game Saturday in Vancouver, 34-10 to the Kamloops Raiders. “Nanaimo was a strong team and that was a great battle,” said Kelsey Winter, Raiders captain. Angela Buick scored both Nanaimo’s tries in the final.

BASEBALL TEAM loses three out of four at home.

The Nanaimo Pirates didn’t take advantage of a gorgeous weekend for baseball at their home park. The Hub City Paving Pirates lost three of four B.C. Premier Baseball League games at Serauxmen Stadium, falling 2-1 and 5-2 to the Coquitlam Reds on Saturday and then splitting with the North Delta Blue Jays on Sunday, winning 2-0 and losing 4-1. “It’s frustrating when you don’t win ball games that you think you’re in, or you are in,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. Nanaimo played well in its lone win on the weekend, led by starting

pitcher Devon Geary who threw a complete-game shutout. Alex Rogers led the offence with two hits and an RBI.

“It was a real tight ball game, with pitching and defence and with timely hitting, which is what you want,” Doug Rogers said.

“Second game, we were playing decently up to the fifth, sixth inning, then we fell apart.” Alex Rogers suffered

the loss, throwing 6 1/3 innings while allowing no earned runs and striking out six. Aidan Goodall had two hits and Brady Rogers doubled. The Pirates got strong pitching in both contests Saturday. Luke Skingle threw a complete game in the 2-1 loss, but his defence made five errors and T.J. Mah was the only Pirate to drive in a run. The second game needed extra innings and Goodall ended up with a no-decision after giving up no earned runs over nine innings. Braeden Mousseau hit a single and a double in that one and Zach Diewert also had a pair of hits.
