The new owners of the Elk Falls mill site have yet to make a formal announcement, but there’s already speculation it could become a liquified natural gas (LNG) plant. “We can’t offer a lot of details right now,” said David Erdman of Quicksilver Resources. “Our intent is to start a feasibility study on suitable uses. It could include LNG, working with potential partners.” On Friday, Catalyst Paper announced it had finally sold the former pulp and paper mill site to to Quicksilver Resources of Canada Inc. for $8.6 million. Quicksilver Resources is based in Fort Worth, Texas, while its whollyowned Canadian subsidiary is located in Calgary. The private company has about 500 employees in Canada and the U.S., and explores for, produces and acquires natural gas and oil reserves. “I think it’s excellent news,” said Vic Goodman, executive director of Rivercorp, Campbell River’s economic development agency. “We’ll be working with (Quicksilver) to reestablish the industrial tax base – it’s time to put that valuable property to good use.” Goodman wouldn’t say what the Continued on A2

400-acre industrial site will be used for, only that Quicksilver will be releasing more information in the coming weeks. However, with a plentiful supply of relatively cheap natural gas and a deep-water port, rumours abound Elk Falls could become an LNG plant. That would hardly be a surprise. There are already six proposals to build LNG plants in Kitimat and Prince Rupert, and last month the province announced there are proposals for another four plants in B.C. Building a new LNG plant at Elk Falls would cost billions. For example, in Melford, Nova Scotia, the Indian company H-Energy is planning to build a $3-billion LNG plant and export terminal capable of exporting 1.5 billion

cubic feet of natural gas per day. According to Goodman, Rivercorp has been assisting Quicksilver since last fall. That’s about the time when Catalyst’s tentative sales agreement with an Alberta investor, Harold Jahn, began to crumble. In a phone interview Tuesday from his office in Fort Worth, Erdman said Quicksilver would need to form partnerships and a consortium if it pursues the LNG route. He also said the company will soon be in contact with the province to discuss site remediation and “will engage the community” about potential uses for the Elk Falls site. “We have some great opportunities,” said Erdman.

The couple were caretakers at Pacific Outback Resort, located on Hanson Island, about eight kilometres northeast of Telegraph Cove. McPherson was last seen on April 29. Following an extensive search, her remains were discovered May 6, leading to Andretti’s arrest.

He’s been held in custody since then at the Vancouver Island Regional Correction Centre in Victoria. However, at his first court appearance, by video, he requested to be in Campbell River provincial court for Monday’s bail hearing. However, with no lawyer, the bail hearing did not proceed, and the judge gave Andretti another week to secure counsel. “Work hard at getting a lawyer. You need one badly,” stated Judge Saunderson.

Campbell River turns out to defeat depression D efeat Depression events took place in over two dozen communities across Canada on Sunday to raise awareness about mental illness, reduce stigma, and to encourage Canadians to become more involved with their mental well being. In Campbell River people gathered under mostly sunny skies; first in ones and twos as volunteers from the Beacon Club, BC Schizophrenia Society, Peer Support Workers from VIHA Mental Health and Substance Abuse and others came to help set up tables, put up banners, and generally arrange everything. Then they began arriving in threes, fours, and groups larger still as those who were participating in support Campbell River’s first Defeat Depression Walk started to arrive. The organizers were hoping for at least 50 participants. They were surprised and delighted when over 165 people came to show their support and help shine a light on depression, an illness that is regarded by many as shameful

and something best not talked about. Just before the 11 a.m. start, Barbara Swanston, one of the organizers spoke to the crowd. She told them she was there because she had lost her son, Terry, to suicide in August 2010, a result of suffering from a profound depression.

She said he would not go for help because he felt ashamed and worthless, a typical result of the stigma that keeps people silent. Two other organizers have children who died by suicide and all of organizing committee have experience with mental illness either themselves or

to remember a loved one they had lost to suicide or any means. The crowd fell silent and there were tears in many eyes as they remembered lost loved ones. Then she asked people to turn to someone in the crowd and say that name out loud. She spoke the names of her son, Terry, and also Greg, Josie Laslo’s son, and Hayden, Barb Kozeletski’s daughter, who also died by suicide. Josie and Barb are fellow organizers.

If you have a brain, you have mental health (we all have mental health) and anyone can fall victim to mental illness – a disruption in their mental health. She went on to say that like any other serious illness, depression can be fatal and the fatality is by suicide.

District in good shape Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The Strathcona Regional District is in better financial shape than its B.C. counterparts, but an auditor warns tough times could be ahead. Chartered accountant Brad Piercy of Meyers Norris Penny said the regional district’s debt and expenses are low compared to other regional districts across the province. Expenses for 2012 were $9.9 million, up from 2012’s figure of $9.5 million, but revenue was up to $10.2 million in 2012 from $9.8 million in 2011. “Your assets are greater than your liabilities this year,” Piercy said. “You’re better than the other regional districts – there’s one above you, but you’re right at the top. You guys are totally great. You’re fine, and it’s because you don’t have any huge debt.” The debt stands at $493,596. The regional district also has a surplus of $347,560 in 2012 because there is

money being held over for the $1.1 million Rod Brind’Amour Arena improvement project. “You had a lot of repairs for Strathcona Gardens budgeted for 2012, but they are happening in 2013. Basically there’s a million dollars for Strathcona Gardens that’s going to get spent this year,” Piercy said. It’s those improvements to Strathcona Gardens that Piercy said will alter the Strathcona Regional District’s financial outlook. Piercy said that other regional district’s have higher debt simply because they’ve recently undertaken expensive infrastructure projects, while Strathcona Regional District has not – at least not yet. “They don’t have to replace as much assets in the future as you guys do,” Piercy said. “At some point you’ve got to put a bunch of money into Strathcona Gardens and that’s happening next year. When you look at the next 10 years, you’re going to have to beef up your capital spending.” Piercy also explained

that each year infrastructure improvements are held off, the value of the regional district’s assets depreciate in value. However, as Director Brenda Leigh (Oyster Bay-Buttle Lake) noted, lighting upgrades at Strathcona Gardens and a new ice surface for the arena would factor into the amortization of the regional district’s assets. Piercy said the regional district is in a good spot now, but that could change in future years if improvement projects are needed. “All of your trends are positive and they’re positive because all of your capital projects haven’t begun,” Piercy said. “On the flip side, your assets are more depreciated (than other regional district’s) because you haven’t spent the large dollars.” Director Larry Samson said he’s concerned what that could mean. “Keep in mind, the train is coming and future taxpayers and future (regional district) boards are going to get hit,” Samson said. Leigh said her philosophy would be to use a mixture of borrowing, taxation and draws on reserves to fund future expenses. Piercy said “there is no right answer” and it’s up to the regional district board to decide how it wants to spend its money.

Arena upgrades expected to be complete by summer Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

It’s been smooth sailing so far for the staff at Strathcona Gardens who are working to have Rod Brind’Amour Arena back in action for late summer hockey programs. The aging arena has been undergoing vital improvements since April 15. Josie Rohne, Strathcona Gardens manager, said everything has been going according to plan. “We’re on budget and on time,” Rohne said. “Maybe even a week ahead of schedule.” “But don’t jinx it,” Lorne Parker, operations manager at Strathcona Gardens, quickly chimes in as he lightly knocks on his wooden desk. The $1.1 million is expected to be complete Aug. 26 – the day the first renters are scheduled to use the new ice. The dasher boards which circle the ice surface are slated to go in June 10 and will take a week to a week and a half to put up. After that,

staff will begin to make the new ice – a process which will take 20 days. “The floor has to be cooled slowly over 10 days in order to bring the floor to freezing,” Parker said. “The first time you put in ice it will be a long process.” The concrete slab, which lies just beneath the ice and is used for lacrosse games, was poured over the last three weeks and is now finished, though it’s not completely cured yet. The new concrete was poured over top of the old slab, which was salvageable despite a large crack down the middle of the concrete. It was that crack that threatened the arena’s future. “The floor was splitting down the middle and it was putting stress on the brine lines (which cool the floor),” Parker said. “Eventually it would split the brine lines and we wouldn’t have the ability to make ice.” With the new slab over top of the old concrete, the ice surface will end

Question: What is IV sedation?

Some dental offices refer to IV sedation as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight sleep” which are both misleading - IV conscious sedation is designed to relax the patient at a light or moderate level and, in reality, you remain conscious during the procedure meaning you will understand and respond to requests from your dentist - although you may not remember because the drug typically used does two things, Dr. Kevin Lathangue 1. IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. 2. The drugs used for IV sedation produce either partial or full memory loss (amnesia) for the period of time when the drug first kicks in until it wears off. As a result, time will appear to pass quickly and you will not recall much of what happened - this is likely the reason people believe they were “asleep” during the procedure. Typically, people seek out IV sedation when they are anxious about a procedure or the needle. Although IV sedation is not a pain killer - we can use EMLA cream to prevent the needle from hurting which creates a more comfortable experience. Finally, if you are a person who has postponed your dental treatment due to fear or anxiety - this might be the perfect solution to finally get your oral health back on track.

Once the arena reopens, visitors will also notice a new, live camera feed in the lobby outside Rod Brind’Amour Arena. The feed will allow guests to look in on what’s going on on rink two. Parker said the TV will be useful to parents who have kids playing on both rinks at the same time. The Rod Brind’Amour Arena project is being funded through the Strathcona Gardens service, a function of the Strathcona Regional District, as follows: $750,400 from 2013 revenue which includes $111,000 that was put aside for the project in 2012 but was unspent that year, plus $328,800 worth of debt that is being borrowed over five years.

Over 600 of your friends and family work in the Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA). They live, work and are invested in your community - just like you.

The Downtown BIA is comprised of over 60 businesses and employers, the third largest source of employment in Campbell River. The BIA extends from Pure Self Defense in the south to the Royal Bank in the north including Tyee Plaza.

BIA merchants support local charities, causes, sports teams and events. Nonprofits receive considerably more support from local businesses than they do from out-of-town businesses. If you need help with an event you more than likely won’t talk to a merchant from Courtenay, Nanaimo or Victoria - you’ll approach a local business. BIA businesses are generous- think of the Hospital Foundation, the Angel Rock, the Community Foundation and Fashion Inferno.

When you shop with local merchants, more of your money stays close to home. Buying goods and services locally means two to three times as much money spent stays in the local economy.

A local business is much more concerned about keeping you happy by providing good customer service.

Before you head out of town, take a good look through the local shops, chances are you will find what you are looking for.

Downtown trees costing businesses thousands of dollars Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Trees that line Shoppers Row are causing major headaches for business owners who have been dealing with property damage caused by clogged underground sewer lines. The culprit is the 34 London plane trees and the 38 Japanese cherry trees that were planted along Shoppers Row and Pier Street 30 years ago. Peter Wipper, city clerk, said since then the trees have grown substantially taller and while they help beautify the area, their roots are spreading and impacting sewer lines. “Although the trees are considered beautiful, they have grown to a size which is impacting both public and private above ground and below ground property and utilities,” Wipper said in a report to council. “Namely, it is the London plane trees which are of concern.” Wipper said that over

those claims four were denied and one is pending. The worst is a tree at 970 Shoppers Row which has prompted 13 calls for service and a claim for $50,000 which is still active. It’s believed the service pipe is broken and the city is recommending council replace the pipe and install a cleanout in order to inspect and auger the line as necessary. Stephen Grant, who co-owns the building which holds Monks, Online Gourmet and Royal LePage, has lost business over damage caused by the city’s trees. Grant’s $50,000 claim to the city for repairs is currently still pending. “The tree has destroyed the pipe that connects our sewer line from the building to the sewer main and the tree has then grown up the pipe into our building (over 60 feet), causing a sewer backup,” Grant wrote in an e-mail to the Downtown BIA.

the last several years the city has received complaints relating to lifting sidewalks, blocked roof drains, obscured business signage, fallen leaves being tracked into businesses, sap dripping onto parked vehicles, tree root damage to sewer lines, and damage to building awnings caused by branches when it’s windy. The problems brought on by the downtown trees was first reported in the Mirror earlier this year. Jan Tees of the Downtown BIA, sent an e-mail to businesses after an article appeared in the January 18 edition of the paper. Tees asked affected business owners for their input and recently presented their complaints to the city. What emerged as the biggest and most expensive problem is impacted sewer lines. In the last three years, the city has received five claims for damages caused by sewer backups. Wipper said of

CAMPBELL RIVER 3X7 1498 Island Hwy

“To repair it, we had to close Online Gourmet for about three weeks to cut and jack hammer existing damaged pipes and reinstall new ones.” Grant figures that if the city refuses to repair the broken line, which is about 12 to 15 feet away from his building, he and his fellow owners will be on the hook for $200-$300 to auger the lines each time in order to avoid future back up into their building. Victor Choo, president of People’s Drug Mart at 984 Shoppers Row said the trees have caused the business “nothing but grief ” in the past few years. “Twice a year the toilets in our bathrooms have to be unclogged and twice a year our sinks in the staff room have to be unblocked,”

Choo wrote. “ The plumbers that have come in to service this problem all say that the tree roots are growing into the sewer pipes and causing a blockage. The cost of the plumbers adds up to $500 a year annually.” Michael Corday of Marco Investments said their building at 1000 to 1040 Shoppers Row has been obstructed by the trees. “The trees have grown to such an extent in front of Marco’s building…that they have made the signage useless and also they have grown over the top of the building to an extent that when the leaves fall off the trees, they are clogging the drains on our roof,” Corday said. Wipper said staff agrees the London plane

trees need to be replaced with something more suitable but first the downtown’s aging infrastructure needs to be dug up and replaced. The water system needs to be replaced as does the sanitary sewer system which is at the end of its life. The storm drainage system is undersized and electrical service to the street lights is failing, according to Wipper. “It would not make sense to replace the trees until the underground utilities have been replaced,” Wipper said. “The cost to replace this aging infrastructure is considerable and will need to be done on a block to block basis as the city’s budget allows. “The first stage is currently underway with

the redevelopment of the St. Ann’s block. Staff agreed that the trees and their roots should be managed until they can be replaced.” As a temporary fix, the city has installed cleanouts at two different problem trees but the service line still needs to be inspected. City staff are recommending council, which was presented with the downtown tree saga at Tuesday’s council meeting after the Mirror went to press, install cleanouts at four additional problem tree sites. Staff also recommend the city prepare an inventory of downtown street trees and implement a work plan to prevent roots from problem trees from blocking sewer lines.

Our View

Harper fails to act on scandal 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 We say: Voters of bilking taxpayers with improper may finally have expenses, the prime minister claims to powerless, while money is quietly had enough of the be funneled out of his office to repay the impropriety 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 has done a service to his country after all. Maybe the senator’s 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. – Black Press

Pet-lovers can buy their own facility For many years I’ve been reading in Campbell River newspapers, that we have an over-population problem in regards to dogs on our streets. To solve the problem these city nitwits want to use tax dollars to build even larger facilities to house those animals. It is an insult to all thinking Campbell Riverites (yes there are some of those left) that we can solve our problem by making it even bigger. If there really are so many concerned “pet lovers” around, let them get together, purchase a farm or compound outside city limits, and move them and their pets – preferably pronto. I am not willing to pay extra taxes for “too many dogs and cats.” I am sure that there are one or even two more like-minded people in this town.

BC Teachers Federation digs in for endless wars

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

Like those Japanese soldiers who didn’t hear about the end of World War II, the militant fringe that controls the B.C. Teachers’ Federation is digging in for endless battle against the B.C. government. Their nemesis, Premier Christy Clark, reiterated last week that seeking a 10-year agreement with the BCTF is a top priority when the legislature is recalled this summer. The current one-year truce ends June 30. The BCTF grudgingly agreed to that extension last year, then ran TV ads calling for an NDP government that promised concessions and union bosses on both sides of the negotiating table. “You know, I may be a lame duck,” outgoing BCTF president Susan Lambert crowed to cheering classroom-warfare

radicals at the union’s convention in March, “but I think Christy’s goose is cooked.” We’ll never know how much this sort of gloating contributed to the epic collapse of the NDP, champion of public sector union members whose pay and benefits make them the new upper class. But I can tell you the prospects for sparing children from this ideological warfare are not good. Last week the B.C. Court of Appeal handed down an ivory-tower decision that upheld the “right” of teachers to bring their union demands into the classroom in the form of posters, buttons and black armbands that to some self-absorbed teachers symbolize the “death” of education. During the election campaign, The

Globe and Mail carried a story on one of those mock elections held in schools around the province. An elementarylevel student was quoted as saying she voted against the B.C. Liberals because Clark “caused a teachers’ strike.” If this kid was talking about the most recent strike, I wonder where she got that idea? In a negotiating performance that was appalling even by BCTF standards, Lambert and her team conducted months of disruptive work-to-rule action before they could even articulate a wage and benefit demand. When they finally did, it was outrageously out of touch with reality. An indication of how the union’s ruling class wants to conduct itself in the classroom can be found in the latest issue of the BCTF newsletter to its

members. Joanna Larson, president of the Prince Rupert union local, contributes an article headlined: “What kind of citizen do we hope to graduate from our K-12 public schools?” Larson first quotes the education ministry’s current goals. They include preparing citizens who are “creative, flexible, self-motivated, and who have a positive self-image.” Another goal is citizens who are “skilled and who can contribute to society generally, including the world of work.” Larson then mocks these goals, as follows: “Essentially, the Ministry of Education has a vision of citizens who will maintain the status quo, not rock the boat, and participate on a superficial level

Visiting hiker found in Sayward woods A vacationing hiker spent a chilly night in the bush near Sayward. The 54-year-old man and his wife were visiting from the United Kingdom when they decided to go hiking Saturday in the densely forested area above the Village of Sayward. He was last seen by his wife around 1:30 p.m., who then contacted authorities an hour later. That sparked a largescale search involving the

RCMP helicopter, other officers and emergency service volunteers, a police dog, and members of the Campbell River, Comox Valley, Parksville and Nanaimo search and rescue teams. “Apart from searching the logging roads, the terrain was very difficult, with dense secondgrowth forest and steep cliffs,” said Tim Fairbank of Campbell River Search and Rescue in a news release.

The search continued throughout the night. Then on Sunday, at 7:30 a.m., the missing man was spotted by the police chopper crew nearby where he was last seen. Ground rescue crews immediately attended to the location where he was found to be in good health. He had the necessary food and clothing with him to remain safe throughout the night. “It is astounding to see how many volunteer

search and rescue crews, volunteer firefighters, rescuers and community members step forward at a time like this to offer their support,” said Cpl. Milo Ramsey of the Sayward RCMP in a news release. “We were able to amass a professional, highly-trained and dedicated team within a short time frame, leading to the safe rescue of this man.” The volunteer search teams were also

in aspects of political and societal change. It doesn’t challenge individuals to take direct action against exploitation, marginalization and violence.” In case you missed

the political message, Larson later asserts: “The educated citizens we graduate from our schools cannot just be content to wear a pink shirt once a year…. Educated, engaged citizens must be willing to take

direct action to change and shape our society for the better.” What is this ghastly “status quo” that must be challenged by “direct action”? In these campus-radical screeds, the final

impressed by the hospitality. “The folks in the village of Sayward were remarkable in their support of the search mission, supplying meals, accommodation and logistical support for the RCMP and volunteers the entire time,” said Fairbank. “When you drop what you’re doing, be it paid work or a weekend with family, and go help someone in need, it really feels good to be appreciated.”

answer is generally the same: capitalism.  This call to arms is a blend of the NDP election platform and a rant from the Occupy Vancouver squat of a couple of years ago.  It’s no wonder we

Cortes Nation wants to build marina NEWS

WEDNESDAY, MAY 29, 2013 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Klahoose need to go through rezoning process first before a decision can be made on Squirrel Cove plan Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The Klahoose First Nation on Cortes Island wants to build a marina and a commercial moorage facility in Squirrel Cove. At a board meeting last Thursday, Strathcona Regional District directors gave first reading to a rezoning bylaw necessary to accommodate the operations. The project will also involve the relocation of a 3.2-hectare shellfish tenure. Klahoose Resort Limited Partnership wants to develop a marine resort in front of Tork Reserve

in Squirrel Cove. “The proposal would involve development of a marina comprised of 69 berths and 46 single point moorings along with a fuel dock, waste pump-out facility, power and water provision, a laundry, and float plane and water taxi docks covering an area of 16 hectares,” said Tom Yates, acting chief administrative officer of the Strathcona Regional District. “The proposed development of the marina and associated moorings has triggered the requirement for the relocation of an existing shellfish tenure.” The applicant has also

applied for a .4 hectare tenure to be used for commercial moorage to allow access to part of the reserve that is cut off from shore access. The project has triggered a rezoning application because the current zoning does not allow for the proposed marine development or the relocation of the shellfish tenure. Directors passed first reading of the rezoning on the recommendation of Yates, who acknowledged the economic benefits for the Klahoose First Nation that will come with the project. But following first reading, directors got caught up trying to decide on a date and location for a public hearing – the next step required in the rezoning process. Directors wanted a neutral setting but the only site – Manson’s Hall – is booked through

Hatchery fence stolen Police are asking for the public’s help in catching two men who stole fencing from Marine Harvest’s Montague Creek Hatchery. According to Sayward RCMP, on May 19, around 4 p.m., two men operating a light cream-colured pickup truck were seen dismantling a large section of chain

link fence and two gates. The theft occurred at the hatchery located approximately 25 kilometres north of the Sayward Junction. Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 250-282-5522 or go online to Crime Stoppers at www. bccrimestoppers.com

June. The Klahoose were also planning to hold its own public information meeting at the Klahoose First Nation Multi-Purpose Centre just hours before the public hearing and some directors thought it would be preferable to have the two meetings in the same building. “Having both the public information session and the public hearing at the Klahoose site would be advantageous for people so they would not have to move from one site to another for

the same information,” said Mike Moore, alternate director for Cortes Island. “Many people travel by bike and some may even be coming by boat as this deals with Squirrel Cove.” Having said that, Moore acknowledged he understood there “may be issues of giving over control to the Klahoose if it’s in their traditional territory.” A re a D D i re c tor Brenda Leigh (Oyster Bay-Buttle Lake) preferred a neutral location.

“It would be more convenient for staff and directors to have it in one location, however, there’s so many differences of opinion on this issue,” Leigh said. “People who want to speak, if they’re on the applicant’s grounds, they may feel inhibited. It should be in a neutral location. I would be in favour of Manson’s, even if we have to go into the week or July.” In the end, directors voted to hold the public hearing at Manson’s Hall on July 6, at 1 p.m. with

A11

Cortes Director Noba Anderson chairing the meeting and Leigh acting as vice-chair. Gerald Whalley, Area A director (NootkaSayward), suggested that since the public hearing is more than a month away, the Klahoose hold its information session a few weeks prior “so the public has the chance to digest and mull it through instead of jamming it all through.” Moore agreed and said he would bring it up with Director Anderson and the Klahoose.

MANAGING YOUR MONEY Are you ‘average’? Defi nitely not! 4x10 4x10

Kathy Furmaniak CFP, CPCA Financial Consultant

Here’s one dictionary definition of average: Lacking any extraordinary, untypical, or exceptional characteristic. Does that describe you? Of course not – you are unique. Yet, many Canadians will hear the word average a lot as they go about their retirement planning. They’ll hear things like, “If you are now 30 years old (or 40, or 50) you will need to average $X amount in savings and investments for your retirement.” “As you get closer to the average age for retirement, you will need to move all of your investments into safe, but lower-returning, investments.”

be taken in by the ‘flaw’ of averages – be sure your financial plan is precisely tailored for you alone according to your needs and goals.

But don’t throw away every average because some can be effective as planning tools. Take the average life expectancy, for example: Statistics are clear that, on average, Canadians are living longer. That means you can reasonably expect to live through many years of retirement – so the prudent and practical thing to do is design a financial plan that will deliver the income you need to ensure you will have the retirement lifestyle of your dreams for all your years.

INVESTORS GROUP

The key is to know exactly what that lifestyle will be – what you want to do in retirement. Then you’ll know how much it will cost and you can begin working on the important financial details that will support that – like organizing sufficient retirement income, tax planning, and your insurance needs in retirement.

Be prepared for change, though. Your life will take directions you can’t see right now – so a flexible plan that is frequently updated is also necessary to reach and retain retirement success. Sound like a lot of work? Here’s how to make it easier: The Investors Group Retirement Readiness Quiz – at www.investorsgroup. com it is designed to give you a head start on your retirement planning. Your professional advisor is also a great resource for developing a plan that ensures your savings and investing levels will match your retirement dreams. And there will be nothing average about it.

The Strathcona Regional District’s review of the Official Community Plan (OCP) for Electoral Area ‘D’ (Oyster Bay – Buttle Lake) is well underway. We invite you to assist in developing a visionary and inspirational document that reflects the community's desired future for Area ‘D’.

SRD

We have recently moved into step two of the process - community visioning meetings. The first step concluded following three initial start up meetings that were held for three planning areas: Strathcona Park / Upper Campbell Lake, Oyster River / Oyster Bay and Shelter Point / Stories Beach. The community visioning meetings are land use focussed and allow for public identification and discussion on land use issues and plan content in more detail. Facilitation in a round table format will provide for detailed discussion on topics and issues of interest to Area ‘D’ residents. The next land use focus meeting is intended to generate discussion regarding land use issues of particular interest to the Shelter Point / Stories Beach area scheduled as follows: Wednesday, May 29th, 2013 Oyster Bay Resorts - Horst Henning Hall 4357 South Island Highway 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. You are invited to attend to share your thoughts and ideas. Please watch for future notices highlighting upcoming meetings and opportunities to review a draft plan.

Further information can also be obtained from Beth Rees at planning@strathconard.ca, or 250-830-6711.

September 23,1948 April 27, 2013 With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved Ernie, husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend.  Predeceased by his father Robert, in 1975, and his mother Joyce, in 2011, he is survived by his wife Bonnie, son Robert (Lisa), grandchildren Adam and Lindsey, son Steven (Earla), brothers; Bruce, Robert & Dave (Liz), sister Gail (Al) Folstrom, nieces, nephews and many friends.  Still so full of life and looking forward to the warmer spring days ahead, Ernie left all of us too soon.  He passed away at his home early Saturday morning on April 27th.  With a strong, easy, gentle confidence, Ernie was very friendly to all he met, and always had a smart remark to make you smile.   He loved the innocence and sincerity in children, and told his wife he will miss seeing his small grandchildren grow up.  After 4-1/2 long years of a slow deteriorating lung disease, Ernie still looked forward to each day, and on his last Friday, he still asked his wife “What have we got planned for the weekend Honey?”  Now free from his silent struggle, Ernie has begun his next adventure, where he’s waiting for us to tell his stories to, about what he’s been up to since he left us.  Ernie was unique in every way and will always remain, UNFORGETTABLE……………..…Till then Ernie, we love you and miss you. Please join the family for his Celebration of Life on Saturday, June 1st, 2013 at 1:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall on 11th  Avenue.  Ernie was laid to rest by his family on May 2, 2013 at the Elk Falls Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, Ernie would have appreciated donations be made to the CR SPCA in his memory, as he loved dogs and had rescued many from the shelter over the years.

RELAY FOR LIFE

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is a celebration of survival and a tribute to the lives of loved ones who have been touched by cancer.

PROCESS

Cancer outreach depends on motivated, caring people who take the time to inform our community about cancer research, statistics, symptoms and the latest medical interventions available. Together these people make up our nation’s many cancer organizations. Because of them, it’s possible for volunteers to contribute time, energy and money to a specific group or organization they know they can trust. Most importantly, these cancer organizations provide continued support and advice to cancer patients, their friends and family members.

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

BC Children’s Hospital helps kids get care closer to7x14 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.”

BC Children’s Hospital receives over 200,000 visits from patients from across the province every year.

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.

In previous years they would go around the track averaging 20-25 seconds, now they are using the dirt jumps located on turn 4, making for a motocross style of racing. Joel Forth and Brad Taddeo battled hard in the lap 10 lap main event, with Forth taking the lead on the last lap and not looking back from there. Three different winners were declared for three different races in the I.M.C.A Modified division. Tim Openshaw took the dash, Gregg Sagmoen took the eight-lap heat, and Dano Bryant who had been struggling all night, found his way in the main, holding off Openshaw to win their 20 lap feature. Eleven cars took to the track in the Bomber car division. Travis Stevenson won the B heat, with the A going to Mike Dionne. Last year’s bomber car champion Stewart Lee continued his winning

ways in the main event, taking the lead on lap 31 of 40 from Stevenson, and he never looked back from there, winning his first Brian Sullivan memorial race. In the drifting division, Hayden Barnes and Alex Davidson out drifted the rest of the field to get themselves to the final drift off. Barnes and Davidson were matching each other drift for drift, but Barnes would edge out Davidson to take first place and win the first round of the drifting competition. Extra laps... The Crash to Pass, Hornets, Roadrunners and Figure 8’s are all on the card for next weekend sponsored by Surfwood Equipment. Going into the night, Raymond Fortier holds a 65 point lead over second place Jeremy Stormo, who is on a two main event winning streak in the Hornet B class. In the Hornet A class, Kevin Lawrenuk holds a 74 point lead over second place Kyle Fallowfield. Jeff May holds a 69-point lead over his cousin Matt May in the Crash to Pass division. Finally, Dan Kemp holds a 131 point lead over Nick Leavitt in the Roadrunner division. With all these point races heating up, this Saturday will be a night you wont want to miss.

Vernon, BC. She became the primary researcher and author of three core intergenerational government resources, linking health and education. MacKenzie continues to work closely with agencies and groups in the fight against ageism, always pushing for awareness of how bridging generations respectfully restores and strengthens community. As a result of the hard work of MacKenzie, Executive Director of BC based i2i Intergenerational Society of Canada ( www.intergenerational.ca) and a small group of volunteers, this 4th annual IG Day Canada includes a record number of Canadian cities. “We reached out to cities across Canada and everyone embraced the idea.” says MacKenzie.

“The number of Canadian cities acknowledging this focus day has grown from seven to 88 in just one year with representation from every province and 2 territories. Four provincial governments have proclaimed the day as well.” Intergenerational Day Canada June 1 provides an easy opportunity to raise awareness in classrooms and in daily life of the many benefits that simple and respectful connections between generations bring to education, health and community safety. Stereotypes of both young and older people are broken down when they learn about each other. Isolation is diminished and empathy grows in both directions. Intergenerational Day Canada makes a power-

epiphany. “The kids realized that the best way to stop ageism and mistreatment of people of any age, was to prevent it. Perhaps a special national day that encouraged building relationships between younger and older people was the key,” MacKenzie says. June 1 was chosen because of its close proximity to UN World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, June 15. It was billed as a reminder that there is a solution for mistreatment of all ages.

mobile in our country due to work and educational opportunities, making it difficult to maintain regular contact between generations. Immigration, high costs of travel and family breakdowns all contribute to shifting social circles which can lead to isolation and generational disconnect. Workers often travel in age-related networks, young children are in primary schools, teens are in high schools, older adults are moving to retirement communities and seniors homes. We do all of this with an eye to efficiency of service, but what is our loss in breaking these generational connections? Intergenerational activities are an untapped resource. They are rich in personal connections and provide opportunities to practice personal responsibility and empathy. We spend tax dollars attempting to help isolated teens, neglected children and disconnected older adults. In many cases these two generations would solve their own problems just being together, guided by a respectful and safe plan. Reaching out to one another is a priceless first step. Celebration of Intergenerational Day Canada June 1 can be as simple as giving a smile or a kind word, making a phone call to your grandmother or saying hello to a skateboarder. Calgary is taking this one step further with two public events where they are expecting over 900 youth and seniors (info@link-ages.ca) to celebrate together. Beyond a one-day event, an innovative intergenerational immersion project in Williams Lake, BC sees an elementary school class move into a temporary classroom in a seniors’ residence for two full months of the school year. They combine curriculum, volunteerism and one-on-one visitations. The project is a life-changer for all participants.

Beaver Lodge Lands Trust

Celebrate 20 years of the Beaver Lodge Forest Lands Trust Party to mark the popular public forest’s anniversary

I

t’s been called Campbell River’s Stanley Park, so special is the Beaver Lodge Forest. Walkers, joggers, cyclists, equestrians, naturalists, photographers – all manner of people use Campbell River’s Beaver Ldoge Forest Lands. It’s hard to imagine this community without it. But there was a time over 20 years ago when it was nearly lost to urban development. However, a dedicated band of enviornmentalists saved this special forest for use as a public space and forestry research and education. And 20 years ago, through Bill 52 – Beaver Lodge Trust Lands renewal Act, the Province of British Columbia enshrined the presevation of the forest into its own specific piece of legislation and protected it as an experimental forest and public space. June 1 has been formally declared Beaver Lodge Land Trust Day in Campbell River, and it will be quite an occasion. This is a great opportunity to celebrate, honor and enjoy this won-

derful community asset. Not only will there be opportunities to go on guided tours into the Beaver Lodge Lands (BLL) gift area and all its amazing and wonderful beauty and springtime glory (starting from the North Island College lower parking lot at 10 a.m.), but there will also be presentations by some of the main people who were most closely involved in the whole controversy about the formation of the BLL back in 1991-93. And then at noon, Marine Harvest Canada has agreed to bring in a chef to lead a team of volunteers in cooking delicious Atlantic salmon on the company’s shared mobile barbecue rig. The company has raised thousands of dollars for many charities and worthy causes in the immediate Campbell River area over the last few years, and this time, the money from the $5-a-salmon burger – which comes with dressings – will go, through the Greenways Lands Trust, towards the cost of the celebrations and the ongoing work on the BLL by the BLL Trust Com-

mittee which operates under the provincial government’s forests and lands ministry. And as if that’s not enough, there also will be entertainment donated by musical group Freeman and Hill, both before the brief speeches and presentations and after. Speakers at the event, to give their perspective on this unique BLL gift to the community both then and now, will include: Mayor Walter Jakeway, former Mayor Mary Ashley, former Attorney-General Colin Gabelmann, and still-active environmentalists Stan Goodrich and Don McIver, who were so instrumental in halting the development plans for the forest. And to wrap it all up, there will also be a few more guided tours by knowledgeable people (on the Beaver Lodge Lands and its botany, etc.) into the Beaver Lodge Lands after the barbecue lunch, for those who can’t make it during the morning. Those begin at 1 p.m. The four groups go in during the morning at 10:15 a.m.

Booming community needed land for housing Continued from B3

of Vancouver Island alone plied the waters of the inland sea that dominates the view from the hillside. Those trees saw Capt. George Vancouver make his naval forays into the region, exploring it for the benefit of his British homeland. And it was those trees that brought people from other continents back to the coastal slope to turn the forest into the wealth of a young nation and its most western province. A train route had been pushed north up the eastern side of Vancouver Island through the forest to terminate at the river north of the 50th parallel. That river would give its name to a community that would grow to envelope the forest with roads, houses, water pipes and electrical wires.

But decades before that urban expansion would take place, the trees were cut down as private corporations reaped wealth from their massive trunks. Jobs were created and families were fed from the forest’s bounty. After that harvesting was complete, one man looked at the denuded land and thought that this rate of consumption could not be sustained. R.L. Cobb, an executive with the International Timber Company, believed that his industry needed to look to the future and consider ways to make the newlycut land productive again. He decided that a piece of land was necessary to experiment with replanting trees to develop another crop that would be ready for harvest long after the logging industry innova-

tor was gone. So Cobb offered the provincial government 12,000 acres originally but the bureaucrats in the government didn’t catch Cobb’s vision and rejected the offer. Perhaps the cost of administering and conducting an experiment on that scale was too high for government. Undaunted, Cobb made another offer from his company, now called Elk River Timber, and this time less land was offered, about 1,000 acres. But this time, the government sent in an up and coming forest manager, Findlay McKinnon, who evaluated the tract of land and decided the province should accept the offer for the land and use it for reforestation and forest management. The lawyers were set to work and the land

was formally entrusted to the province. The documents were filed and the replanting work was prescribed. Fifteen thousand trees of varying species were ordered and workers hired to plant them. The work done, those involved stepped back and surveyed their work. Satisfied with the result, they went about their lives and the decades rolled on. In a file in Victoria, legal documents sat and yellowed with age, all but forgotten. Meanwhile, a dot on the map suddenly exploded with activity as heavy industry came to the region and the population exploded. From the 1950s onward, the community of Campbell River would grow to more than 30,000 people. And those people

wanted houses. Up to the 1990s, Campbell River had followed a traditional settlement pattern by spreading along the foreshore of Discovery Passage. The municipal government that administered the community discovered that settlement pattern was difficult to deliver water and sewer services to. Moving water long distances requires expensive infrastructure and civic planners decreed that the city had to stop snaking along the shoreline and push inland so that services would not be strained to the point of ineffectiveness. Inland meant into the only tract of undeveloped land available: the former plantation that had been deeded to the province. By now the forest had regrown, approaching a mature

state. Trails criss-crossed the forest as many a child and adult had hiked, biked and fished in the forest over the decades, oblivious to the fact that it was all second growth. Somehow, the land managers had forgotten that the forest had been given to the province in trust to be used for experimental forestry. The small city now eyed the lands and prescribed a development plan that called for subdivisions and municipal thoroughfares. Thousands of suburban homes were envisioned – housing for a booming community. Planners nodded their heads and felt reassured this would serve the needs of the vibrant community. Official community plans described in detail the future of the tract

of land. Once again the trees were slated to disappear. This time covered over with asphalt and concrete. But as those plans were presented to the community, longtime residents began to feel a disquiet. Back in the collective mind of the community was something about this forest being preserved. A committee of environmentalists were informed by a source that there had been a decree entrusting the land to the province. A deed existed. Somewhere. A pair of longstanding residents set off to Victoria to pick up the legal documents that had been requested of the Ministry of Forests. There they sat on a counter awaiting them. And so, today’s story begins...

A growing malaise and disquiet developed By Quentin Dodd It was a little over 26 years ago now, back in the spring of 1987, that a small piece appeared in one of the local newspapers stating that the provincial government might start selling off bits of the Beaver Lodge Lands (BLL) in Campbell River. There had, in fact, been a number of plans drawn up by the municipal council of those days, going back several years before that, to build houses in subdivisions in the BLL. One called for 700 houses to be built on the eastern one-third of the area, while another

dating back to 1982 called for about 2,100 houses to be built over the entire area. And as the Ministry of Forests moved deeper and deeper into selling chunks of the BLL along McPhedran and area, a growing malaise and disquiet developed, especially among residents in that part of the community and among environmentalists, dog owners and walkers. Through contact with Ron Burrell, now on the Greenways Land Trust board of directors and then a senior local member of the ministry charged with conducting the sales, local environmental council members

Don McIver and Stan Goodrich learned there was likely a record of the gift of the BLL by the Elk River Timber Co. to the provincial government in the ministry archives in Victoria. So a search was conducted through the documents in the basement of the ministry and sure enough: a certificate of Indefeasible Title on the BLL property had been formally registered with the government on March 7, 1931 at 10:46 a.m. The documents and negotiations with Victoria had been handled through Lawson and Clark, Barristers and Solicitors, who were

located in the Standard Bank Building in Vancouver. And it was stated that the government had agreed to use the land “for experimental work for reforestation and forest management only.” It was announced in the Comox Argus of Aug. 20, 1931 that the Elk River Timber Co – formerly the International Timber Co. – had given a 1,000-acre tract of land “considered highly desirable for experiments in reforestation and scientific forest management” to the provincial government. The company, the Argus said, had been logging in the Campbell River area for more than

20 years and “realized the advisability of managing cutover lands in productive condition.” That was after it was revealed in the Argus in March of that year that 15,000 two-year-old trees had been taken to Campbell River to start the government reforestation plan there. The Argus called it “the first large-scale reforestation of logged-off land in B.C.” So when the documents recording ERT’s gift of the BLL to Victoria for forest experimentation came to light through long-time resident, mill worker and activist McIver and by Goodrich, his colleague

in the environmental movement, all of the municipality’s development plans were placed in jeopardy, much to the concern of the council of the day in 1992, under Mayor Mary Ashley. By that time the NDP had come to power with local MLA Colin Gabelmann, a member of cabinet as Attorney General. finding himself in a very difficult position. As Attorney General, he was also officially trustee for the Beaver Lodge Lands Trust but as a cabinet member he was expected to support both the development side led by council with the support of the

Chamber of Commerce, who wanted to see the town develop as quickly and strongly as possible, or the anti-development side, which coalesced into the Friends of Beaver Lodge Lands ad-hoc organization behind new public figure Norma Soderholm. Gabelmann said recently that, technically, the final decision about what would be allowed would rest not with the government but with the trustee. He said at the time that it had “always” been his opinion that legislation needed to be brought in to “deal at least” with what he

Beaver Lodge Lands Trust

Beaver Lodge Forest Lands managed by a trust committee By Quentin Dodd

W

hile many people may well know about the Beaver Lodge Trust Lands (BLL) and even have some recollection of all of the incredible effort that went into the preservation of those trust lands through the special Bill 52 in 1993. But probably far fewer are aware of the BLL Trust Committee that has been in operation in the 20 years since then. One heck of a lot of water has passed under the proverbial bridge in those two decades; there’s been a huge amount of discussion by the committee and many decisions have been made by the committee in that time, some of them very tough and hard-fought over months and even years. But they have all had one thing in the forefront of the committee members’ minds: to make the right decision

for the best protection and furtherance of the Beaver Lodge Lands and the good of the Campbell River community at large. That is the task that was given to the committee. When the legislation was passed to preserve and protect and defend the BLL in its new and altered form, it was fully realized by the provincial government that there was going to need to be a local committee formed, to which members of the public could belong and from which advice could be given to the authorities on what to do when issues arose – as they were bound to do. Volunteers were called for to belong to a committee which would operate under the chairmanship of a representative of the local Ministry of Forests officials, under whose jurisdiction the Lands continue to this day. There was no shortage of people prepared to step forward in the

beginning. The gigantic controversy that had arisen – and then, fortunately, resolved – had now dissipated leaving enormous concern over the BLL in the hearts and minds of local residents. So considerable numbers of people put their name on the list to volunteer their time to take part in the committee’s discussions. It was, after all, not really a political, environmental or employment issue any more. So the task appealed to a lot of people who might otherwise have shied away. That, of course, included numbers of people who had been on the cutting edge of the controversy when it was at its hottest. People such as the late Norma Soderholm, who had been the much cherished and delightfullyoutspoken leader of the forces most determined to protect the trust lands from municipal development. Soderholm was joined

on the committee by numbers of others who proved to be stalwarts over the years. People like Tom Easton, also now sadly departed, an articulate man who always managed to bring excellent balance to the

committee discussion. And people like Betty Frost, a local pensioner who, unlike Soderhom, doesn’t have a dog to walk in the BLL, but has an impressive knack of boring straight down to the centre of the discus-

sions and producing a touchingly gentle and insightful view that somehow brings in a reminder of the need for committee members to never forget the much bigger picture surrounding the BLL. It was Frost, who still remains on the committee, who more recently began calling the BLL the “Lungs of Campbell River” because of the way it was producing good clean air for people to breathe, in sharp and marked contrast to polluted emissions that for a long time poured out of the Elk Falls Pulp and Paper Mill. The committee was for many years chaired by Ron Burrell who had been central all those years ago, first in the sale of bits and pieces of the BLL and then later in the preservation and conservation of the Trust Lands. Burrell is now retired from the forest service, but is extremely active with the Greenways Lands Trust, which for

many years did nearly all the maintenance of bridges and trails in the BLL without a contract. That agreement was only inked a few scant weeks ago. Burrell is now back on the committee as a member of the public, often delivering reports and information on behalf of Greenways, without the hard work and careful attention of which the BLL would now be a pale and almost indistinguishable shadow of its present self. It’s Burrell who usually reminds the committee members that the BLL is not technically a park; it’s an adored area of forestry designated for forestry and reforestation experimentation and research. Others have also joined the committee to represent sectors such as hikers, joggers, pedalcyclists, and streamkeepers looking after the salmon runs in the creeks running through the BLL.

termed “illegal” Orders in Council allowing the government to remove land from trust. In November 1992, Gabelmann basically told Campbell Riverites to get on with building a consensus around a plan of what to do with the BLL and resolve the conflict between municipal council and the Friends, who had developed a strong following and adamant and unmoving support. In the end, it was agreed as a compromise that Dogwood Street

would be extended down the hill through the BLL, and North Island College and School District 72 would be allowed to build a new joint college campus and secondary school on the eastern side – but only on the condition that twice as much land was added to the area out towards the new Inland Island Highway as had been taken away. No further development would be permitted in the BLL on the western side of Dogwood. The rest of the BLL

would be preserved permanently for the purposes originally agreed on. The compromise took some time and a fair amount of yelling and pleading to reach, including a meeting between Mayor Ashley, her council and seven members of cabinet – as well as Premier Mike Harcourt, who attended personally to help ensure everything went as smoothly as possible – though not necessarily in council’s favour. Suitable legislation was then drafted and finally passed into law in 1993,

granting Gabelmann his confirmed wish that the BLL eventually be “enshrined” in law, so that it couldn’t be overridden later by Order in Cabinet. The Friends of Beaver Lodge Lands organization, which had even started to put out its own newsletter to keep the public informed under then president and treasurer Linda Nagle, eventually faded from existence, having achieved its main objective of getting the BLL gift preserved forever in law at the forefront of everyone’s conscious-

ness, rather than forgotten and gathering dust in the ministry archives in Victoria. The government also decided, in light of what had happened, that the Beaver Lodge trust lands also needed further permanent monitoring and watchdog from the public to make sure the trust wasn’t breached or abused in future. The Beaver Lodge Forest Trust Committee continues to meet several times a year and is now looking to expand its ranks of unpaid volunteers to discuss policy, programs actions, issues

and proposals that come forward from time to time. It is chaired by a senior representative of the forests ministry and continues to put forward advice to the municipality and the government regarding the BLL, as it deems necessary. The BLL continues to be a place of wonder, education, recreation and occasional experimentation, filled with miles of shaded trails, stands of large and increasingly ancient trees, with suitable paths for walking and biking, equipped with maps and

signage and providing a unique park-like setting that many would argue rivals Stanley Park for Campbell River residents and visitors to the area. Much of the maintenance and upkeep of things such as bridges over the watercourses is carried out by member volunteers from the Greenways Lands Trust, which has a much wider mandate than just the BLL and was not formed until the BLL legislation had passed and all the sometimes-heated controversy was over.

Beaver Lodge Forest Lands gets a helping hand

(From left) Erin Nowak, Greenways Land Trust (GLT) operations manager; Greg Goldstone, Beaver Lodge Forest Lands (BLFL) Trust Committee chair and operations manager (Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resources Operation; and Ron Burrell, BLFL Trust Committee member and GLT Director were on hand for the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations announcement of a new Trail Maintenance Agreement in partnership with Greenways Land Trust for the Beaver Lodge Forest Lands. This agreement was signed on April 4 – just in time for the 20th anniversary BLFL Celebration on June 1 at North Island College. Greenways Land Trust volunteers will be working to improve trail conditions when needed and ongoing maintenance activities. For more information on how to become involved as a volunteer, contact GLT at volunteer@greenwaystrust.ca.

ooking after the Beaver Lodge Forest is a matter of trust. The forest itself is managed by a trust committee. But it’s another trust whose volunteers roll up their sleeves and do the manual work involved in the maintenance of the Beaver Lodge Forest. That job has been taken on by the Greenways Land Trust or Greenways, as they’re more commonly known by. “For the past eight years, we’ve had different agreements with the Ministry of Forests to maintain and care for the site and the trails,” said Ron Burrell, a member of the Greenways Land Trust board. Burrell has a unique perspective of the forest. He was responsible for it at the Ministry of Forests when the forest was created and chaired the first Beaver Lodge trust Committee when it started and for years

afterwards until his retirement. He then kept active through serving on the Greenways Land Trust board. Burrell is intimately familiar with the responsibilities of all the agencies connected with the first. “The (B.C.) Forest Service looks after the major roads and the bridges (in the Beaver Lodge Forest),” Burrell said. “They are just too expensive for Greenways to look after. “We use our volunteer base to clean up and maintain trails as required.” Unfortunately, Greenways also has to demolish structures and unauthorized trails in sensitive areas of the forest. The forest is used recreationally by many groups and some of them feel free to build mountain bike jumps and push routes into secluded areas. But those structures and that kind of use is hard

on stream crossings and plant communities. The relationship with the Beaver Lodge Lands is fostered by an opportunity in 2002 to salvage timber in the Beaver Lodge Lands. The sale of that timber earned about $25,000, Burrell said. “Of which we have about $18,000 left,” he added. Greenways holds those funds to turn them back into the cost of maintaining the forest like replanting the areas that were salvaged. Ongoing trail maintenance is an important job. The number of users of the Beaver Lodge Forest Lands has quadrupled in recent years, Burrell said but the trails are in tip-top condition. “I am extremely pleased with the condition of the trails,” Burrell said. Burrell is also pleased with how much public use of the trails there is.

crowns of their heads enabling them to see more than 180 degrees both vertically and horizontally allowing them to keep an eye on an approaching predator. Canada geese are very social birds with over 10 different calls allowing them to communicate a variety of messages and their vocalization is not easy to replicate. Specialized beaks are equipped with “lamellae” along the edges, these small, serrated, teeth like adaptations allow the geese to cut or strip their food. These geese are certainly not fussy eaters dining on a huge variety of aquatic vegetation. In spring and summer, leaves, flowers, berries, seeds and roots keep them feeding for up to 12 hours in the day. Needless to say, the unpleasant part of their voracious appetites is their ability to produce copious amounts of waste which can present a problem in local parks, farm lands and golf courses. Their excrement is high in nitrogen and phosphorous which

We ask people to be aware of how to behave if you find baby ducklings which differs from how you would proceed with a gosling. Due to the number of babies a mother duck will often take half her brood to seek the water, returning for the rest later. Many times well meaning people think the remaining ducklings are abandoned. If you intervene, the mother will not take the “abandoned” babies back to her care. However a gosling is much larger and has the protection of both parents that will gladly accept and care for the errant gosling. Please do not assume baby wildlife has been abandoned. Call us before attempting to rescue ducklings’ or any other wildlife babies. To report injured or “orphaned” wildlife please call 1-800-3-49968, for other calls 250897-0337.

id you know the bark of the cedar tree can be used to make clothing? The International Women’s Group learned first hand what this natural material can be used for and how to pull it from the tree. On May 15, 14 First Nations youth from the Laichwiltach Learning Program, along with Elder Wayne Bell, hosted an experiential cedar bark pulling field trip for the International Women’s Group of the Immigrant Welcome Centre. In the forest near Rock Bay, the group shared in a cultural exchange as part of a project organized by the Immigrant Welcome Centre. The year long project is intended to foster understanding between cultural groups as they learn about one another through teachings, celebrations and stories. Each exchange is made into a short video to be shown at various community events to share how the community is learning from each

other, working together and breaking down barriers by participating in cross-cultural events. Khammy Quan, born in Laos, said, “I learned how to pull bark from the cedar tree! We spent the day with the youth sharing food and learning together from the Elder, it was good team effort. I never would have experienced this otherwise.” In return for these teachings, Quan and fellow volunteer, Sudesh Kumar, visited the youth class afterwards to share their own stories about how and why they came to Canada. They also shared what it was like in their country of origin while enjoying a meal with the youth of traditional foods from their homelands in Asia. The next Cultural Exchange, A Taste of Asia, takes place Saturday, June 8 at the Maritime Heritage Centre from 10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Activities include tastings of traditional food, bubble tea, Taiwanese children’s games and live performances such
