Trustees approve district land deal Multiple-property transaction with city must be completed by end of March 2014 By Jenn McgarrigLe ThE NEwS BULLETiN

Nanaimo school trustees gave the official stamp of approval to a major land exchange deal with the city, as well as three right-of-way requests, at Wednesday’s board meeting. The board passed four property disposal bylaws for lands intended to go to the city as part of the land swap deal announced last December – the Harewood playing field, the old Northfield school site, a portion of the district’s Oliver Woods property and the Dickinson Road property, known as Pioneer Park. Phil Turin, the district’s secretary-treasurer, said the district had to first obtain approval from the Education Ministry to dispose of the lands before passing the bylaws that formalize the deal. “That’s a big job, to get the minister to approve it,” he said. The province’s approval is contingent on the transactions being completed by March 31 of next year. Turin said he hopes the work can be finished in this time frame – earlier this year, city officials expected the land swap deals to complete by Dec. 31, 2014 – so he doesn’t have to go back to

the Education Minister and get permission to extend the approval order. He called the agreement with the city an exciting step for the district. “I don’t think it’s ever happened between the city and the district before and the parties have been working very well together,” said Turin, adding a number of conditions on various properties need to be met for the deal to go through. At the same time the district received approval for the land swap, the province also approved the sale of the old Waterloo school site, and Diamond school site. The Waterloo property is for sale and the Diamond site is being sold to the Ladsmith Little Theatre Society. Trustees also approved requests by B.C. Hydro and the city for right-of-ways on district property. The Hydro request is to replace and move a pole that is currently in the middle of the sidewalk in front of Quarterway Elementary School to another location on the property for safety reasons. The city has two requests – to construct a public sidewalk and bus bay in front of Woodlands Secondary School and a pedestrian/bicycle connection to the E&N Trail at the corner of the Woodlands property near Northfield Road. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

NDP reviews election performance By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Adrian Dix is staying on as B.C. NDP leader while the party reviews its performance in the May 14 election and prepares for four more years in opposition. Dix didn’t specify a time frame for the election post-mortem, but said he will work to prepare the NDP opposition to hold the government to its election commitments. “I assure you this

review will spare nothing and no one, least of all me,” Dix told a news conference in Vancouver Wednesday. “It must address the strategy and tactics we employed in the election, and it must examine the fundamental question of who we are as a party and our relationship with the people of B.C.” Dix took responsibility for mishandling a campaign that began with the NDP expecting a strong

majority government after four years of turmoil in B.C. Liberal ranks over the harmonized sales tax and other issues. He singled out as a significant error his surprise mid-campaign decision to turn against the proposal to expand the TransMountain oil pipeline that runs from northern Alberta to Burnaby and Washington state. Dix expressed no regret for avoiding negative advertising, although he was tar-

geted by a long string of ads questioning his personal integrity and competence. He stood by his choice as an attempt to engage more voters, but the campaign didn’t deliver a significant increase in the 51 per cent participation rate of the 2009 vote. “I don’t believe last week’s results are the end of positive politics in B.C.,” Dix said. “The answer to the Liberals’ populist, right-wing playbook is not to simply adopt it.” Instead of pushing Premier Christy Clark out of the job, the NDP ended up down three seats to 33 and the B.C. Liberals increased their majority to 50 seats. Delta South independent Vicki Hunt i n g t o n w a s re elected, and the B.C.

Stakeholders can still input facilities plan

Inbrief city scene

Public invited to talk taxes Harbour City residents are invited to the inaugural public meeting of the newly formed Nanaimo Ratepayers Association on Wednesday (May 29). The association, a non-partisan group, hopes to provide alternatives to tax increases without sacrificing public safety or services. Another focus is to encourage greater transparency and accountability at city hall by insisting in-camera agendas and minutes be made public once the genuine need for secrecy has passed. A third objective is encouraging zero-based budgeting and taxpayer savings reviews. The meeting takes place at the Kin Hut in Departure Bay starting at 7 p.m. For more information, please contact Don Graham at 250-7580667 or Jim Taylor at 250-753-6019.

The two-month public consultation process on Nanaimo school district’s proposed 10-year facilities plan is nearing the halfway mark. But parents, students, district employees and community members can still have a say at any of the four meetings scheduled for next month: June 12 at Cedar Secondary School for all Cedar and John Barsbyzone schools; June 13 at Woodlands Secondary School for all NDSS and Woodlandszone schools; June 17 at Ladysmith Secondary School for the Ladysmith area; and June 19 at Dover Bay Secondary School for all Dover Bay and Wellington-zone schools. Consultation began April 26 with a separate online public engagement process for each school in the district as well as one for the general public. D o n n a R e i m e r, school district spokeswoman, said in each online process, people were asked to share their thoughts on the plan. Similar thoughts will be grouped together and then the feedback returned to participants to prioritize. “It gives us a really good idea of the concerns people have, what they see as the positives,” she said, adding the response so far has been good,

Walkers protest closing schools By Jenn McGarriGle THE NEWs BuLLETIN

A group of parents, students and school district employees concerned about proposed school closures walked from Ladysmith to Nanaimo Saturday to raise awareness about the issue. The district’s draft 10-year facilities plan calls for closing a net total of 10 school facilities over the next decade, starting with South Wellington and North Oyster elementary schools and the junior learning alternatives site at Five Acres this June. In response, several parents of South Wellington students formed the group Stand Up for Public Education Rights. The group organized a 22-kilometre walk starting from NanaimoNorth Cowichan MLA Doug Routley’s constituency office on First Avenue in Ladysmith and ending at his constituency office at Southgate Mall. More than 50 people par-

ticipated – some walking the entire distance and others walking part of the way – taking about four and a half hours to make the trek, said Tiffany Nelson, SUPER spokeswoman. “It was a good walk, the weather held,” she said. “We had a really broad representation from stakeholder groups. I feel like we did raise community awareness.” The walk included representatives from the South Wellington and North Oyster communities, Cedar Secondary School students, support workers and teachers. The group’s mission statement is to support the right of students throughout the district to access quality public education within their home communities. “The argument is that the communities affected have the right to make that decision for themselves,” said Nelson. “Rural is an equally valid lifestyle and educational choice to urban cen-

tres. We don’t want to see a bigger is better agenda pushed on communities.” The group believes the provincial funding structure results in chronic underfunding and there is fiscal mismanagement at the district level as well, she said. Closing South Wellington will mean a net loss of funding for the district, as the school receives extra funding through a small schools grant, Nelson added. Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, said the district receives extra funding for both South Wellington and North Oyster, but the focus of the facilities plan is on providing better learning environments for students and better teaching environments for teachers, not on saving money.

with more than 4,000 thoughts collected from participants as of last week. The goal is to have the online process finished by June 11 – in time for a report on feedback at the public meetings. People can also write a letter to the school board until June 24. Reimer said district officials are meeting with parent advisory groups at all schools to share information and discuss the format of the zone meetings and the district has hired Donald Golob, who helps organizations with facilitation, public participation and strategic planning, to help. Trustees will consider all of the input on the plan at a June 26 board meeting. J a m i e B re n n a n , school board chairman, said trustees are open to feedback and suggestions. “All of this is open for discussion as far as I’m concerned,” he said. “I haven’t made my mind up.” The plan includes closing a net total of 10 school facilities, rebuilding four facilities, pursuing the addition of enrichment programs to a number of schools, relocating the learning alternative programs, adjusting the French immersion program and relocating administrative functions. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

A liquefied natural gas tanker of the kind that would load at proposed B.C. terminals at Kitimat and Prince Rupert.

LNG impact study underway BY TOM FLETCHER Black press

B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office is proceeding with impact studies on proposed liquefied natural gas development, including pipelines across the Rocky Mountains and marine terminals in the Kitimat-Prince Rupert area. The EAO is advertising for a contractor to do a “socioeconomic analysis” of the range of projects, which may include five or more separate facilities to process and ship LNG to Asian markets. Proposals are being accepted until June 3, according to a request for proposals posted on the government’s BC Bid website. While the number of potential pipelines and LNG plants remains uncertain, the EAO has identified broad issues for the largest industrial proj-

ect ever proposed in B.C. They include: “potential social and economic issues arising from large and mobile capital construction workforces, injection of longerterm residential workforces in communities with proposed facility projects; potential impacts from increased dust, noise and vibration; water management and potential short-term negative visual impacts.” Aboriginal consultation covers the

study corridors for pipelines of up to 48 centimetres diameter, with right-of-way between 18 and 40 metres wide and up to 800 kilometres long. A British Gas executive told the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce last week that he expects only two or three of the six current proposals will proceed, as B.C. competes with Australia, Qatar and other gas exporting countries for Pacific Rim sales.

Nanaimo News Bulletin 7

News Bulletin celebrates 25th It’s been a quarter century since Roy Linder and Tom Thomas approached Black Press with the goal to establish a new community newspaper in Nanaimo. Since then, the publication grew from a simple shopper to the three times per week community newspaper that

it is now. Current and former staff joined members of the community at an anniversary celebration Friday afternoon at the paper’s office on Poplar Street. A barbecue with help from M&M Meat Shops, a giant cake from Quality Foods and

entertainment from students at Wellington Secondary School’s music department helped mark the occasion. For more information on the News Bulletin’s history, please visit www. nanaimobulletin.com/eeditions and click on the Thursday, May 23 edition.

EDITORIAL

Scandal must force reform

In the blink of an eye, the Conservative government can strip away the retirement dreams of millions of Canadians. But when a loyal soldier of the government stands accused of bilking taxpayers with improper expenses, the prime minister claims to be powerless, while money is quietly funneled out of his office to repay the alleged wrongdoing. But this time, Canadians may finally have had enough. The cloud of scandal continues to grow over the head of embattled Senator Mike Duffy. The former TV journalist is accused of fudging his expense account, eventually repaying the improperly claimed expenses with $90,000 he received from Nigel Wright, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s chief of staff who has since resigned. Duffy has now quit the Conservative caucus in the Senate, but he is so far rejecting calls to resign as a senator. And the prime minister seems unwilling to push him out the door. Harper said he was “not happy” and “very upset” with the conduct of some parliamentarians and his own office, before hopping on a plane for a South American trade mission without answering questions from reporters. The same prime minister who has shown the powers of a majority government are almost limitless is now unable to even mention the name of his disgraced colleague. Apart from apparently filing bogus expense claims, most Canadians would be hard pressed to name a single duty that senators fulfill. Maybe Mike Duffy, and other senators also facing questions about their filing of expenses, has done a service to his country after all. Maybe the senators’ actions will be the straw that broke the camel’s back and prompt Canadians to demand an end to the political embarrassment that is this nation’s Senate.

I rushed out to plant carrots and beets last week – about two weeks ahead of when I was thinking of planting – to take advantage of the rain promised in the forecast. Carrot seeds can take longer than two weeks to germinate and it is hard to keep that top layer of soil moist at all times, which is what the seeds require. Another mistake I make constantly is planting corn too late – the plants don’t have enough time to make the corn before fall sets in – or planting things too early. I wasted a batch of lettuce seeds by planting them just before a cold spell earlier this spring. And as for the growing medium, light soil is better for growing root vegetables – I try to work all of the chunks out of the soil with my hands and dig deep to make it easier for my carrots to grow down. Pick as many rocks out of your garden as you can, although they seem to multiply in the rain. Lighten up a clay-based soil with organic materials like compost and applying fertilizer of some sort is important. And final tip of the day – on the subject of pests – I deter cats from digging by placing a square of chicken wire or similar material over plants while they are small. As plants grow and expand across the dirt and your garden starts looking less like a litter box, our feline friends are not so attracted to it any more. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin 9

Tornado opportunists wrong on all counts with climate changes NEWS BULLETIN fILE

Occupation of Colliery Dam Park by Veterans of Clayoquot can be avoided by members of city council changing thier minds on saving the two dams, says letter writer.

Park protest can be avoided To the Editor,

Re: Council approves demolition of dams, May 16. In order to avoid a long summer of confrontation, let us employ some common sense in dealing with the Colliery dams. The provincial dam safety board wants the ‘danger level’ lowered. No problem. Simply lower the water level in one dam by deepening one sluiceway and replace one dam a year starting next year. Ripping out both dams will kill two ecosystems including all those fair sized turtles in the lakes. There will inevitably be sediment loss that will end up in the lower river area and destroy the fish habitat and may well cause flooding. Dumping pieces of the dams in the empty black holes will not prevent the walls of the lakes collapsing into the mess at the bottom. The upper dam is mostly bedrock. Are we going to dynamite it to provide slag? As covered by the News Bulletin, Veterans of Clayoquot will utilize direct action to prevent the destruction of our beloved park. This can be easily avoided by at least one more member of council to see the light and vote to act rationally.

Dave Cutts Nanaimo

Got an opinion? Why not share it? LETTERS POLiCy: Letters should be no longer than 250 words and will be edited. Preference is given to letters expressing an opinion on issues of local relevance or responding to items published in the News Bulletin. Include your address and phone number (although those won’t be published) and a first name or two initials, and a surname. Unsigned letters or third-party letters (those specifically addressing someone else) will not be published. MaiL: Letters, Nanaimo News Bulletin, 777 Poplar St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9S 2H7 Fax: 250-753-0788 E-MaiL: editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Election a lesson to be learned To the Editor,

From what we saw on election night, there were two clear lessons for everyone that came out of this upset. If any leader or campaign manager ever suggests taking the ‘high road’ and running a positive campaign, the rest of his or her members should stand them in a corner and make them repeat “British Columbia” 100 times. The same punishment should be dished out to every voter who writes a letter complaining about so-called ‘negative advertising’ or campaigning. Nice guys, as the saying goes, really do finish last. Second, pollsters and polling during elections has now lost so much credibility that it now serves absolutely no purpose. A clue to what happened here is perhaps to be found

in the fact that more than 50 per cent of voters made up their minds way before election day. The likelihood is they kept their decision to themselves when the pollsters called so they finished up in the 20 per cent ‘undecided’ which actually wasn’t undecided at all. Charles Reid Nanaimo

B.C. doesn’t need a Liberal sell-off To the Editor,

Re: Voters still remember follies of 90s NDP, Letters, May 18. In response to Dave Cansell’s reasoning why the NDP did not pull out a victory, I agree about the weak leadership choice. But taking a stand against “big oil” is a risk that needs to be taken as our corrupt governments in power right now do nothing to stop the sale of Canada’s finite natural resources to China

and other developing worlds creating useless consumer goods, trinkets and plastic toys, and inferior products. The temporary jobs that would be created keep people employed for a few years, but most will be brought in from other provinces and countries for the work. Having a political party in power that puts out minimal effort or resources to emerging technology to create a better province to live in is what we need to lead us into the future and help create a better place for our kids and grandchildren. We don’t need a political party selling off everything like a Sunday yard sale.

Jayson Wall Nanaimo

Alcohol on board a bad suggestion To the Editor,

Re: CEO admits ferry system expensive, May 18. I was amazed to read that “one chamber member suggested the sales of alcohol on board might mitigate some of the expenses.” What is he thinking? A 90-minute or two-hour ferry ride with alcohol sales on board? And then these people get in their cars and drive off the ferry? Wouldn’t B.C. Ferries be opening themselves up to some big liability issues?

Jazz Affair sparks music passion BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

C

onnecting with other jazz musicians pushes your creativity, said Cameron Wong. Wong, 17, has participated in Jazz Affair, a fundraiser for The Friends of Nanaimo Jazz Society, for the past five years. He said hearing the guest artists and learning from them is inspirational. It was a few years ago that Christine Jensen performed at the event. That moment made Wong fall in love with the musical abilities of the saxophone. Wong said the way Jensen played the saxophone made him take up the instrument. He now plays both the alto and soprano saxophone. “It was intense and soft at the same time,” said Wong about Jensen’s playing. “It was a real pleasure to hear her play.” Playing during Jazz Affair is also special for Wong. “It’s the connection between the other musicians. If you play a note or a lick and it resonates with the group the group will respond to it,” s a i d Wo n g . “It’s like a conversation but completely creative and in the moment.” The event

Jazz Affair features the vocal talents of Sara Gazarek, a jazz artist from Los Angeles. Cameron Wong, 17, left, started to play the saxophone after hearing Christine Jensen play at a previous event.

has had a wide variety of guest artists over the years and the experience and knowledge they share is invaluable, said Wong. Mentoring youth is an important part of why this year’s guest artist Sara Gazarek, a jazz artist from Los Angeles is performing at the event. “I understand how important it is to engage young people in the beauty of the art form,” said Gazarek. “It comes down to us knowing we wouldn’t be here unless someone ignited the flame in us.” Gazarek said she loves the mentorship Jazz Affair provides and that it helps to inform young people that they

Inbrief

have a place in this art form. Gazarek was born in Seattle. When she was in high school she signed up for the theatre program. She said most of the passion for jazz was ignited by Scott Brown the instructor. He took students to jazz festivals and exposed them to jazz greats. Unlike theatre singing the festival allowed her to present herself, not a character. The ability to be herself onstage made her fall in love with singing. Gazarek and her band sing classic and their own original songs. For classic jazz hits putting their own voice to it is a natural process, she said. “For us it’s just about approaching every song like it is our own song,” said Gazarek. Jazz Affair supports young musicians with scholarships to attend summer jazz camps in central and northern Vancouver Island. Carmella Luvisotto, band director at Wellington Secondary School, said scholarships are open to students throughout the central Island not just Nanaimo. Jazz Affair is Friday (May 31) at Beban Park. Tickets are $25 and are available at Fascinating Rhythm, Seadrift Fish Market, Arbutus Music and Guava in Woodgrove Centre, by calling 250668-6794 or e-mailing tickets@ friendsofnanaimojazz.com.

Beading project created to honour women

Gallery auctioning painting

Women are invited to create art to honour the memory of indigenous women who have gone missing or were murdered across Canada. The Nanaimo Arts Council and Nanaimo Women’s Centre are partnering to offer residents the chance to participate in the national art project called Walking With Our Sisters. Participants will create moccasin tops that will become part of a travelling exhibit that will be shown across the country. Participants don’t have to have beading or artistic experience.

The Nanaimo Art Gallery is auctioning a painting created by Yvonne Vander Kooi for last year’s Art in Public Spaces program. The piece called Snuneymuxw, Meeting place was exhibited at the Beban Park Social Centre for the program and now is on display at the gallery’s downtown location.

The project is seeking teachers and mentors. Artists are also asked to become part of the project to help interpret participants’ vision. Donations of beads or money to purchase supplies is welcome. The gatherings are scheduled for June. The deadline to apply is Friday (May 31). To apply please call 250-729-3947 or e-mail admin@nanaimoartscouncil.ca or coordinator@nanaimowomen. com. For more information please go to www.nanaimoartscouncil. ca.

Vander Kooi has lived and worked on Vancouver Island for 15 years. She owns Bird Studios, which is located at 345 Haliburton St. The auction closes on June 8 at 4 p.m. and the starting bid is $2,000. People can place their bids at the gallery, by calling 250-754-1750 or e-mailing julieb@ nanaimogallery.ca.

Sagittarius

Capricorn

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, remain modest about your personal and professional accomplishments this week. Now is not the time to show off. Be humble in your conversations.

Aquarius

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, as inviting as a situation may look, appearances can be deceiving. You may want to dip your toe into the water before you dive right into something.

Pisces

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, this week you need to be extra cautious if you are in the middle of any business dealings. All it can take is the slightest misstep to turn everything around. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, things beyond your control may be contributing to sour feelings this week. Look at the bright side of any situation and you can probably find a solution that works. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you are seldom soft spoken, but this week you may have to be even more assertive to get your point across. Otherwise your opinions might fall on deaf ears. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Try to get outside as much as possible this week, Capricorn. The fresh air and sunshine can do wonders for your mood. Plus, you can get in some exercise. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Do not follow the examples of others when they act irrationally to a certain situation, Aquarius. Although it can be difficult, you need to take the high road. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Take a chance and express all of your goals and hopes this week, Pisces. Others may be surprised at what you have to say.

SENIOR B box lacrosse team wins 11-4.

The Nanaimo Acme Painting Timbermen had some added firepower, and it was more than enough to win. The city’s senior B lacrosse team (4-1) defeated the Port Moody Thunder 11-4 on Saturday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. New addition Blair Pinnock scored four

goals in his debut to lead the T-men offence. “A new team, you want to go out and just fit in, play well with the guys…” Pinnock said. “I was just finding the open space and guys were hitting me.” There were plenty of other contributors, too, as the T-men built a 5-1 first-period lead and weren’t really threatened. Shane Chalker scored twice and Rick Fields, Steve

Higgs, Stephen MacFarlane, Joey Fendick and Graeme Ross also tallied. Danny Walters made 26 stops. “We worked hard, worked as a team,” Pinnock said. “A lot of ball movement. The more you move the ball around, the more the defence gets scrambling.” GAME ON … The senior B T-men play road games Saturday (June 1) and Sunday at Langley and Royal City, respectively.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Acme Timbermen senior B lacrosse player Blair Pinnock scores his fourth of the game on Saturday night at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

The Nanaimo Pirates won most of the time this past weekend – their only loss came in a strange, sudden-death ball game. The Hub City Paving Pirates swept the Whalley Chiefs on Saturday at Serauxmen Stadium, 4-1 and 6-4. The next day at Serauxmen the Pirates played the last two innings of a suspended game against the White Rock Tritons, losing 4-3, but shut out the Tritons 5-0 in a rematch. “That shortened game was a tough one to overcome because it breaks your heart instantly because you only have two innings to try to do something positive…” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. “Guys were down.” The Pirates came out sluggish in the rematch, said the manager, but strong pitching from Devon Geary kept the score 0-0 and the Pirates broke through in the fifth inning with four runs. Aidan Goodall led the attack, going 2-for-2 with two walks and two RBIs. Tristan Olsen THE NEWS BULLETIN doubled and Geary Nanaimo Pirates pitcher finished with a Devon Gear y throws a complete-game strike Sunday afternoon. three-hitter. “Our bats have really come around,” said Goodall. “Early in the season we were striking out a lot; we weren’t putting the ball in play … Now we have that hitting, we’re manufacturing runs.” Goodall got the ‘W’ in the first game of the weekend, with Braeden Mousseau going 4-for-4 in that one and Zach Diewert going 2-for-3 with two RBIs. In Saturday’s second game Tom Negrin singled and doubled and drove in three runs, Brady Rogers was 2-for-4 and Alex Rogers threw a complete game, striking out 10 batters. GAME ON … The Pirates (12-11) host the Parksville Royals (2-13) on Wednesday (May 29) at 6 p.m. at Serauxmen Stadium.

Roller derby makes return

I

BRASS KNUCKLE Derby Dames defeat visiting NwO squad 154-150. BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

It was only the home opener, and yet it was so much more. The city’s newest roller derby team, the Brass Knuckle Derby Dames, won its first-ever bout on Saturday night, defeating Chilliwack’s NWO Roller Girls 154-150 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. “The fact that we did this is amazing,” said Amanda (Miss B. Haven) Gould, assistant captain. “We’ve got some great girls and we’ve brought everything together and it’s just been wonderful.” The matchup came down to the final jam, and while the NWO women were able to make it close, they couldn’t quite catch up. There was a nervous moment

for the home team as officials tallied the points, and when the final score was revealed, the Brass Knuckles celebrated as though they’d won a championship. “We have a little bit of a track record – we don’t usually win,” Gould said. Not many of the BKDDs had ever won a roller derby bout before Saturday, as some are former members of the winless Nanaimo Nemesis team. But that was then, this is now. “We just had a core group of girls that were here to skate, to have fun, to be part of a great community,” Gould said. The victory capped off a perfect derby doubleheader, as Nanaimo’s co-ed junior team, the Candy Crushers, handled the NWO Honey Badgers by a 345-255 score. DERBY DETAILS … There are no other scheduled derby bouts in Nanaimo until the Vancouver Island Exhibition in mid-August. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin 27

THe 26TH ANNuAl BC CHilDreN’s HOsPiTAl’s MirACle WeekeND

BC Children’s Hospital helps kids get care closer to home Jonathan Dean recently took up horseback riding and, while climbing onto the back of a huge and powerful animal might intimidate some small children, the five-year-old Nanaimo boy took it in stride. Horseback riding just happens to be his latest achievement and his mother, Grace Dean, credits Errington Therapeutic Riding Association’s riding therapy, which requires balance and core strength, with helping Jonathan learn to walk. Jonathan has a genetic condition called CHARGE syndrome and is deaf and blind and requires specialized care in speech therapy, audiology, respirology and ophthalmology. This means he’s had to overcome a many challenges since birth. Fortunately, one challenge – the frequent and inconvenient trips his family had to make to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver – was removed with the opening of a pediatric clinic at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital in 2009. Although Jonathan still goes to BC Children’s a least once a year for checkups, most of his care is now managed by caregivers at the Nanaimo facility. “Being able to go to Nanaimo has made such a difference,” says Grace Dean, Jonathan’s mother. “It’s helped our home life. I don’t have to take a full day or two from work. I can’t even put into words how much it’s helped us.” Construction of the pediatric clinic in Nanaimo was supported by Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital. Among the goals of Child Health BC are improved access to BC Children’s specialists, reduced travel for children requiring treatment, standardized care for children throughout BC, and improved pediatric services in the various regions of the province. “The fact that Jonathan is able to receive specialized care so close to home is exactly what we’re looking for,” says Dr. Maureen O’Donnell, executive director of Child Health BC. Child Health BC’s activities took off after Overwaitea Food Group became the lead benefactor with a pledge of $20 million in support in 2007. TELUS and Scotiabank later made gifts of $5 million and $1 million, respectively. This support had an immediate impact, says O’Donnell. Pediatric clinics established with Child Health BC’s support in Nanaimo and Prince George have thousands of patient visits annually; additional travelling clinics are staffed by BC Children’s caregivers in communities across the province; and over 1,000 health professionals have participated in Child Health BC’s workshops. O’Donnell credits Overwaitea Food Group’s donation with Child Health BC’s growing reach across the province, noting that it’s a perfect fit for an organization with a presence in so many BC communities. Overwaitea Food Group President Darrell Jones agrees. “We’re committed to the health and wellness of kids and families in BC,” says Jones. “We’ve been proud to support BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades – and

with the help of our communities, we’ve contributed millions of dollars toward hospital improvement projects, advocacy programs and important research initiatives. We’re grateful for the amazing support of our local communities, team members, customers and supplier partners who have all played a key role in making this fundraising success possible.” Child Health BC is part of a larger transformation in the way BC’s children receive care, says Larry Gold, president of BC Children’s Hospital and Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children. The transformation also includes the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. “We want to ensure children have access to a consistent standard of care, whether they live in Smithers, Campbell River or Castlegar; and there will always be children who need care that’s only available in a children’s hospital,” says Gold. BC Children’s Hospital Foundation has raised close to $170 million, including Overwaitea Food Group’s gift and $25 million from Teck Resources Limited, in its $200-million capital campaign to support construction of the new hospital and Child Health BC. Gold says that the new hospital, which will open in 2018, will be family-friendly, making it easier

for families from outside the Lower Mainland to remain with their children. Beyond the money being raised for the new hospital and Child Health BC, Gold says the hospital also counts on donations of about $14 million a year to support research, equipment purchases and training. On June 1 and 2 BC Children’s Hospital Foundation will hold its annual Miracle Weekend celebration on Global BC, to raise the millions the hospital needs to cover its urgent annual needs. Grace Dean understands the importance of supporting the hospital: “Jonathan has received great care at BC Children’s and at the clinic in Nanaimo. As far as I’m concerned, the fact that my son, despite all his challenges, is walking on his own, is learning to communicate with me, and is even riding horses, shows just how much children can accomplish when they get the right care. BC Children’s Hospital has been there for us every step of the way.”

Between April 2009 and March 2011, approximately 1,200 families made over 3,200 visits to the Nanaimo Pediatric Ambulatory Health Clinic.

At the Overwaitea Food Group, we’re very proud of our longstanding commitment to investing in the health of kids and their families. We’re grateful to everyone who supports us in this effort. Our team members, customers and suppliers have all played a key role in our fundraising success over the years. We’ve been supporting BC Children’s Hospital for more than two decades, and we’ve raised millions of dollars in support of capital improvement projects, important research initiatives and advocacy programs designed to help keep our kids safe by reducing preventable injuries. In 2007, we made a $20 million pledge to support Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital that helps get kids in BC get the care they need, closer to home. Since then, we’ve raised more than $10.7 million toward our goal, and Child Health BC has been able to put this concept into action in a number of communities throughout BC. We are grateful for the amazing commitment and fund raising efforts driven by OFG team members who encourage the generosity of our customers and suppliers.
