Quentin Kayne, director of food and beverage for the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, left, unveils a tribute to David Foster as Foster, his wife Yolanda, and Kevin and Shawna Walker look on. Last Friday was the official opening of the David Foster Foundation Theatre in the Oak Bay Beach Hotel and the unveiling of the tribute wall dedicated to the famed music producer and composer.

David Foster Theatre officially opens Famed composer on hand to celebrate Kyle Wells News staff

Amid a camera flash-heavy atmosphere, composer David Foster watched as a rope was pulled in the lobby of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel on Friday to reveal a tribute wall dedicated to the man and his successes. An acclaimed music producer and

philanthropist, the Victoria-raised Foster was at the hotel to officially open the David Foster Foundation Theatre and celebrate the partnership between the hotel and the foundation. This was Foster’s first trip to the hotel since its opening last year. With his wife Yolanda Hadid at his side, Foster shook hands with familiar faces and congratulated owners Shawna and Kevin Walker on their work. “It’s so rare to find two people that are as committed as the two of you are to everything we do,” said Foster. “I don’t think we can underplay the importance of what

the two of you mean to this community and to our foundation.” The tribute wall features an autographed photo of Foster, along with framed showcases of three eras of his career. There is also a multimedia touchscreen on which guests can bring up video clips of Foster and the music he has helped create over the years, along with information about the foundation. “How do we pay tribute to a man who has done so much?” foundation CEO Mike Ravenhill asked. “Not only in the music industry, but as a humanitarian, a philanthropist.”

Foster poked a little fun at himself about the display. “You see on there Alice Cooper, St. Elmo’s Fire the movie, Dionne Warwick, my solo albums – which were kind of pathetic and nobody bought them,” he joked. “I did,” came a voice from the crowd. “You’re the one that bought them? Because I saw that statement: one sale,” Foster laughed. “I’m not going to get maudlin about this or go on and on, but it does make you reflect.” please see: Hotel gives foundation a boost Page A8

OUR VIEW

Tanker paranoia doesn’t help us During election campaigns, any talk of economic development tends to be taken with a grain of salt, often viewed as overly optimistic predictions. It’s no surprise then, that as the B.C. NDP and B.C. Liberals vie to become our next government, the issues of pipeline projects and the prospect of additional tanker traffic on B.C.’s coast have voters the most fired up. In Greater Victoria, for example, many people find abhorrent the notion that dozens more oil tankers could one day be sailing past our pristine waterfront areas, if Kinder Morgan is granted permission to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby. It’s easy to forget, as we stroll, run or bike along the Dallas Road walkway, or pathways in Oak Bay or Cadboro Bay, that the ocean which makes our views so scenic is a commercial waterway. Has been for years. Asked why having more oil tankers on that marine highway is a bad thing, people inevitably warn of the potential for an environmental disaster, should a ship run aground or spring a leak in its double-hulled steel. They’ll point to the Exxon Valdez as an example of the environmental havoc a marine accident can wreak. Let’s face it, when it comes to operating anything mechanical, whether it’s heavy equipment, a motor vehicle, a jet airplane or a huge ship, human error is always a possibility. And the consequences can be devastating. But do we ban flying because planes can crash? Or ban motor vehicles knowing that people die every year in collisions? Out of the hundreds of large ships that annually traverse the Strait of Juan de Fuca oil tankers and container ships alike – how many have run aground in anyone’s memory? No one can predict when or if such a disaster might happen. But limiting such a vital transportation link and economic driver is akin to pulling the sheets over our heads and staying in bed. That’s not the mindset that will help B.C. grow and prosper, especially at a time when we’re struggling to find our competitive niche in a still-shaky global economy. What do you think?

NDP to B.C. voters: trust us in the NDP leadership contest two When Adrian Dix took over as years ago. B.C.

All So it was a surprise a few weeks ago when the NDP signaled it would you have to do to find out is elect them. essentially not offer a policy on Labour code changes are another log exports.

They The NDP election platform punts don’t have an answer to the this issue until after the election industry’s point that the high price as well, promising an independent gained by premium logs in foreign markets is what keeps many loggers expert panel to decide on issues working, and subsidizes the harvest like whether to end secret-ballot votes for union certification. of other logs for B.C. coastal mills. This isn’t just a bad idea, it’s a Another thing the NDP doesn’t 30-year-old bad idea. It’s based like is private power development. on the destructive old notion This issue featured prominently

that employers are the enemy of workers, and only a union can protect them. The long decline of union membership in the private sector isn’t caused by employer bullying or secret-ballot votes that protect employees’ freedom of choice. The cause is global competition. The only protection workers have from that is their own efficiency. Balancing the budget? An NDP government will strive to do that over “the business cycle,” says finance critic Bruce Ralston. Oldtimers might remember this one. It’s taken from the NDP’s 1991 election platform. Yes, 22 years ago there was a widespread belief in a predictable four-year cycle of commodity prices and other economic determinants. Whatever was left of that dusty, faded picture was erased with the financial collapse of 2008. If you still believe in a predictable “business cycle,” you may be willing to accept that an NDP-led B.C. will become the first jurisdiction in human history to eliminate poverty, by setting annual targets and paying out borrowed money to low-income parents. On ferries, fracking, union contracts, capital construction and other weighty matters, the NDP’s answer is the same: trust us. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

‘Balancing the budget over the business cycle is from the NDP’s 1991 platform.’

Stop studying and start doing I am appalled at the Capital Regional District and the municipalities refusal to deal with the urban deer pest population.  Exposing your citizens to deer-carried lyme disease, a serious and debilitating illness, is totally reprehensible. Why are the animals which spread lyme disease allowed to roam our gardens and streets? Many people face illnesses or chronic conditions that lower their resistance. Municipalities are there to keep our streets and lands safe and clean for our use. You have utterly failed to protect your citizens and their pets by letting deer spread infected feces and lyme diseased ticks in our parks and communities.  Allowing the destruction of our fragile native species in oasis parks, like Uplands in Oak Bay, by damage from concentrated deer populations, gives the lie to all the CRD and municipal noise and pretty pamphlets on their efforts to support native plant species. As well, we have seen many near accidents with deer, cars and bicyclists, making it clear that at some point we are going to be facing injuries to people.  And not just on the roads. The very busy public foot path on Henderson Lane has seen several near-miss serious accidents with frightened deer pelting along it. Why are you waiting? In our own case, as homeowners, it has been a nightmare for us these last three years as deer – up to four at a time, destroy our cherished trees, plants and vegetables, in our front and back gardens.  In the front, we have had to deer proof our fruit trees and plants into three big swathes of netting which are still under constant attack –

which leaves bits of netting floating out to catch in your feet or glasses, precipitating trips and falls. While in the back garden, which is fully netted around our boundary, we now have to have a second set of barriers inside those barriers. Nothing stops the deer – they put their heads down and rip the outside netting or pull it down from its seven-foot height and jump over it. The deer have destroyed our garden and native plants and eaten all (thousands) of the seedling Garry Oaks we used to give away. They have  made it impossible to grow vegetables. We have spent more than $700 trying to keep them out and nothing works.  When we want to go into our own back garden – which is invaded on average twice a week – we first search out the window, and then going out, pick up a rake for protection and search around carefully for deer, to avoid provoking an attack on ourselves. When we startle hidden deer they bolt wildly or threaten us, especially when they are protecting does. This is not what we had in mind when we created a wild garden habitat in our back garden. I know that some householders, especially those with dogs do not have the problems we have, and don’t understand how awful it is to live under siege like this.  Surely the goals of protecting human and pet health, growing one’s own fruit and vegetables, feeling safe in your community, and nourishing a viable, workable natural garden are important goals for everyone. It is what the communities within the CRD promote – they just don’t do it.   Terri Hunter Oak Bay

to the event directly a number of weeks ago by the event’s organizers. Van der Veen also attended the event as an audience member and supporter. “I saw that it was happening, and I thought it’s important for me to be at this regional event,” Van der Veen said. “We respect the decision on who they chose to invite. That’s it.” Van der Veen said she is more than willing to take part in debates. “I’ve done four debates and they were excellent experiences,” she said. “I’ll go to any debate that anyone invites me to. I’d be delighted to.” editor@oakbaynews.com

Oak Bay-Gordon Head NDP candidate Jessica Van der Veen is clearing up misinformation surrounding a candidates forum held by the Victoria Chinese Community Association on Tuesday, April 30. The regional event featured all the candidates from Oak Bay-Gordon Head except for Van der Veen, with Victoria-Swan Lake candidate Rob Fleming representing the NDP. Some suggested Van der Veen chose not to take part in the event, asking Fleming to fill in for her. Both Fleming and Van der Veen confirmed Fleming was invited

Hotel gives foundation a boost Continued from Page A1

The David Foster Foundation raises money to support the families of children who are receiving organ transplants. The money allows families to temporarily live near the hospital while their child is being treated, without having to worry about the financial stress. A portion of the profit from every ticket sold to events at the David Foster Foundation Theatre goes toward the foundation. About 800 families have benefitted from the foundation. Nearly $300,000 has been raised so far at the hotel for the cause. “When you can find a partner that actually speaks, talks, eats and breaths our foundation, it’s amazing,” Ravenhill said. “We can’t do it without the great support of the community and of corporate sponsors and partners, such as the Walkers and the Oak Bay Beach Hotel.” editor@oakbaynews.com

HOT TICKET Richie Woodland Band

BAY NEWS

The all new Richie Woodland Band with Eric the Red (alto and tenor saxophone and percussive instruments), Pedro Arbour (drums and backing vocals) and Richie Woodland (vocals, semi-acoustic electric guitar and keyboard) debuts at Swan’s Brewpub, 506 Pandora, on May 9 at 9 p.m. No minors, no cover charge.

Battle of the Bands aids kids camp Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Listening to music in a postdental surgery drug-induced haze, Zoe Clint thought to herself: “music, that’s a great way to fundraise for something.” Now she’s the Tim Hortons Camp Day fundraising co-ordinator for three of Langford’s Tim Hortons locations. “I ran with it,” she said. “I wanted to make other people feel good.” Her co-workers at the Goldstream location loved the idea, so she secured Eagle Ridge Park as a venue and set July 6 as the Tim Hortons Camp Day Battle of the Bands to raise funds for underprivileged children to attend summer camp. On stage at America’s Got Talent four years ago, John Johnston, better known as Johnny Bagpipes, felt like he’d

Did you know? ■ The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation was established in 1974 by Ron Joyce, Co-Founder of the Tim Hortons chain, to honour Tim Horton’s love for children and his desire to help those less fortunate. ■ The Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable organization committed to providing a funfilled camp environment for children from economically disadvantaged homes.

been had. As a judge for the fundraising band battle, he’s determined not to convey those feelings to participants. “I know what it’s like to have your hopes and dreams shot down from America’s Got Talent,” Johnston said. “I don’t like to see that, but I think (competition is) fun because it makes all the bands do their peak performances, because they’re being judged. I hate seeing people get discouraged because they didn’t win. There are no losers. “I love rock and roll. I love live music and I think live music needs to be supported. We’ve seen it fading out in Victoria and the Western Communities, and it needs to come back,” he added.   He’ll bring his prior experience as a judge for Victoria’s Got Talent with him. “Little girls would come out there and sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star … you think ‘dang it. I love you’ (said with Blaine Shelton twang). Then you say that and the little girl doesn’t win and you face the parents,” said Johnston. Peter Bodman co-owner of ManKind Studio will judge alongside Johnny Bagpipes. “There’s a spark to certain acts. There’s a certain something that’s hard to define. … you can usually hear it in bands that have it,” said Trevor Timmermann, co-owner of ManKind. “We’re always looking for new stuff you never know.” Bands will compete for a recording prize offered by ManKind Studio during the twohour battle.   Deadline for bands to apply, via

demonstration and instruction, kids’ events, food vendors and acting troupes. The Battle of the Bands starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults with those 12 and younger free. “We want it to be affordable to all families,” Clint said. “It’s going to be pretty spectacular.” Tim Hortons Camp Day Battle of the Bands is July 6 from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Eagle Ridge City Center, 1089 Langford Pkwy. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Women in Need expands services

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.

Stolen dog enters protective custody A nine-month old husky is in protective custody after a woman, who allegedly stole the dog from a Saanich home in April, returned to the scene of the crime. Saanich police arrested a 30-year-old Squamish woman on May 2 after she came to the home in the 700-block of Haliburton Rd., in breach of a court order. Police allege the same woman stole Timber the dog from the home and took him to the Mainland on April 23. Whistler RCMP arrested her on suspicion of break and enter and theft, and she was released under conditions. Last Thursday the family, which had adopted the dog a few weeks ago, reported to police the woman came to their home and pleaded for the return of Timber. “The family opted not to take the dog back for this very reason,” said Saanich police Sgt. Steve Eassie. “They were concerned the previous owner would come back.” The woman went to the Victoria SPCA shelter in a presumed attempt to locate the dog, and was arrested for breaching a court order. Eassie said the dog is in an undisclosed location but isn't at the SPCA.

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 one participant.

Undetected farsightedness (HYPEROPIA) is a common cause of eyestrain. How can farsightedness go undetected? It can’t, of course, if you have your eyes examined routinely. People can mask small to moderate amounts of farsightedness by using the eye muscles to see distant objects. Even more muscular effort is required to focus on near objects. This action is known as “ACCOMMODATION”. Constant accommodation to see causes significant eyestrain and fatigue. Ideally, the eyes should not require any focusing to see faraway objects clearly. The eye muscles should be totally relaxed. This would leave all the accommodation available to focus in on near tasks. When the eyes are already focusing to see distant objects, the added effort to focus on near work can be very tiring. When we are young we accommodate unconsciously and small amounts of farsightedness can be ignored if vision is good. Since children have a huge capacity to accommodate a parent may miss the sometimes subtle signs of higher amounts of hyperopia. The resulting eyestrain can lead to the avoidance of near tasks. Slower reading development is common in children with significant hyperopia. In some farsighted children the focusing effort may even cause crossed eyes. A person’s ability to accommodate decreases with age. Eventually most farsighted people seek help, but they first may have endured years of unnecessary discomfort. Children should be examined, even in the absence of complaints because they may not be aware that they are working their eyes harder than is necessary.

Early bye a chance for Highlanders to prep Highlanders top Kitsap Pumas 3-0 Travis Paterson News staff

Brett Levis’ debut was a sharp one as the dynamic striker was in on all three goals for the Victoria Highlanders on Saturday at Royal Athletic Park. Levis scored once and assisted on goals by Thomas Mallette and Jordie Hughes as the Highlanders won its Professional Development League home opener 3-0 over the visiting Kitsap Pumas. “We hoped for a good performance and good result, and I think 3-0 is more than we’d really expected, a good start,” said head coach Steve Simonson. Victoria soccer fans will have to wait two weeks for the next home match. The Highlanders top men’s side now enters a bye week followed by a road game against the Vancouver Whitecaps under-23 on Friday (May 17) and a home game versus the Seattle Sounders under-23 on Sunday (May 19) at RAP. “The way the schedule is set up this year, to accommodate the multi-use park we’ve got to get our home games in early. It’s also based on a tight schedule

for everyone else in the PDL,” Simonson said. Having an early bye week is not all bad. It gives the club more time to prepare as a team, as the club finalized key additions, such as Brett Levis, last week. “We need to work towards where we want to be and definitely have more work to do,” Simonson said. It’s Simonson’s first full season at the helm, having come on late in 2012 and his recruiting has paid early dividends. Levis, in particular, signed last week and comes from the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. The striker finished second in scoring in the Canada West conference this year with nine goals and six assists while being named a Second Team All-Canadian. “Levis came to us through dialogue between Huskies coach Bryce Chapman and I,” Simonson said. “He is always looking to help his players move on and it opened the door to bringing him here.” Levis, pronounced in the same fashion as the famous blue jeans brand, is a dynamic and shifty player who is dangerous in many ways, as shown on Saturday with a goal and two assists.

“He’s a good dribbler and is so comfortable on the ball, he can toy his way through defenders, and it has that cascading effect, it opens up play for somebody else,” Simonson said. Despite the win it’s still too early to gauge the Highlanders.

“The May 17 to 19 weekend will be a telling one,” Simonson said, as the Highlanders take on two of the three top teams, the Whitecaps, with players on pro contracts, and the reigning division champion Sounders. sports@vicnews.com

Bays, Valkyries at home for finals UVic’s Wallace Field will host day of rugby championships Travis Paterson News staff

The historic James Bay Athletic Association will take a crack at its favourite trophy against Burnaby Lake in the Rounsefell Cup provincial men’s rugby championship game this weekend. The second-place Bays upended third-place Capilano 34-27 in overtime of the CDI Premier League semifinal at McDonald Park on Saturday. First place Burnaby Lake dented the hopes of an all-Island final beating the fourth-seed Castaway Wanderers 26-10 in the other semifinal. Because the Bays have reached the final, the Rounsefell Cup premier men’s B.C. championship will be played at UVic’s Wallace Field on Saturday, May 11. The Rounsefell Cup location rotates between Vancouver Island and the Mainland but will

only happen here if an Island team qualifies, which it has. In other men’s rugby, the Velox Valhallians hosted a triple header on Saturday and fell short in all three. It ends the Valhallians’ cam-

paign for promotion to the CDI Premier league as they fell 19-15 to Abbotsford in the Okanagan Spring Brewery League semifinals. Abbotsford edged Velox’s Academy side 46-29 in the Okanagan Brewery League Div. 1 semifinals. Earlier in the day the Brit Lions scored heavily in a 48-17 win over the Valhallians Div. 3 side, also a provincial semifinal. The UVic Norsemen advance to the Ceili’s Div. 1 provincial final with a 23-12 win over Meraloma. It all sets the stage for a day of rugby finals at UVic on May 11 with Victoria clubs in both premier finals as the Velox Valkyries will face Burnaby Lake in the Women’s Adidas Premiership Gordon Harris Cup. Velox won last year’s Harris Cup and makes its third straight appearance in the final. sports@vicnews.com

OAK BAY NEWS - Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Dog whisperers teach owners as well as animals It’s 11:15 on a sunny Sunday morning at Clover Point and owners with leashed pooches in tow begin to gather around Asia and Jim Moore. The couple have operated K-9 Superheroes Dog Whispering service for the past six years and host a group dog walk with current Don Descoteau and past clients on weekends, Biz Beat rain or shine. Teaching “dog psychology” – the more clinical name for dog whispering – is their primary stock in trade and applies to both the animals and their owners, Asia says. “There’s lots of dog lovers out there, but loving a dog is not enough,” she says. “People continue to get dogs when they don’t have the capacity to give them what they need.” Socialization, one of the main reasons for the regular group walks, is crucial for dogs, she says. Similar to wild counterparts such as wolves, dogs have a pack mentality and are looking to follow, Asia says, and that means owners must lead in a way the dog understands. The Moores do their best to teach

both dog and owner a common language in two sessions, which last as long as required to make progress. That language has nothing to do with instilling fear, Asia notes, but is about being consistent. “A dog needs rules and boundaries – actions that tell it what it’s supposed to be doing.” When dogs are perceived to be behaving badly, they are simply acting out in the only way they know how, she says. K-9’s one-on-one service – they offer no group classes – is primarily aimed at helping people eliminate such behaviours in their dog as jumping on visitors, barking incessantly or acting aggressively toward people or other dogs. But there are positive byproducts. “For a lot of people, (having success working with their dog) helps them feel better about themselves and feel like more of a confident person,” Asia says. Asia grew up on Salt Spring Island and found training dogs came naturally to her. Along the way, she says, she learned to communicate with humans, an important skill in a venture that sees the couple interview clients before beginning work with the dog. Jim Moore grew up around horses and brings a decidedly male perspective to the business, Asia says. “If you’re not afraid of horses, you’re not going to be afraid of dogs,” she says.

From a business perspective, working as a couple is an advantage, Jim says, in that some dog owners respond better to a man than a woman. “I think with our interpersonal skills and life experience, we bring a lot to the table,” he says. The Moores, who also work with rescued dogs and help place problem animals, schedule no more than one session a day so they can give clients the time they need, Asia says. As for the Sunday walks, getting the animals together – both the four-legged and twolegged varieties – is a good opportunity for both species to check in. “Dogs need socialization,” Asia says, adding that the owners frequently have questions for them. For more information on this canine training service, visit k-9superheroesdogwhispering. com or call 778-678-DOGS (3647). Send your business news to editor@vicnews.com.
