Music man

Royal Bay build hits roadblock

Alabama-bred bluesman David Vest will bring it on for the inaugural musical performance at Olson’s Gym in Colwood on Saturday. See story page A13.

Colwood committee says no to proposed density increase Kyle Wells News staff

Colwood’s planning and land use committee sent the developers of a parcel of Royal Bay land back to the drawing board after an application to significantly increase the number of dwellings allowed on 467 Royal Bay Drive. The application was unanimously opposed by the committee at a May 21 meeting. The application will now have to revamped by the developer in conjunction with city staff and residents. “When developers come in that are not from the community and don’t know, sometimes it takes a bit of a learning curve,” said committee chair Coun. Shari Lukens. “I think there’s a new sense of how do we get to ‘yes’ and compromise on both sides.” In 2006 council issued a development permit for the property allowing 38 units. The numbered company that currently owns the land sought to build six buildings containing 55 attached townhouses and 15 residential apartments, for a total of 70 units. The zoning amendment would have seen the density increase from 37 units per hectare to 49.7 units per hectare. One building, fronting Royal Bay Drive, was planned to hold 30 townhouse units and 15 apartments. Ian Pattullo a Promenade Crescent resident who attended the meeting, said all the homeowners in area have known since 2006 that buildings are going up, views will be at least partially blocked and the density of the area will increase. What they object to is the increase from the original plan and the intrusiveness of the Royal Bay Drive building. “They’re not dealing with any of us in good faith. … Our concerns have been ignored,” Pattullo said. He believes the developers need to increase the density in order to recoup costs. The fact city staff recommended the changes also gives Pattullo concern.

Bear Mountain is up for sale, as current owners HSBC look to find a new long -term owner for the development. HSBC planned all along to sell the development, after acquiring it three years ago in the wake of original owner Len Berries’ removal as CEO and the bank’s acquisition of the development. Colliers International has been hired to find a buyer for

the resort, the price tag for which has not been revealed. At the time of Len Berries’ removal, the resort owed HSBC $250 million. Bear Mountain Holdings CEO Gary Cowan said the rezoning applications now with the City of Langford will continue. Rezoning is part of a plan to remove nine holes of golf to make way for more low density housing, a strategy owners say is key to the future of the development but has seen opposition from a group of Bear Mountain homeowners. “We anticipate that process will take some time and therefore it allows us some time to

move ahead with the marketing and attempt to bring a new owner into the process.” Cowan said homeowners on Bear Mountain will see no change and the sale is the right move at the right time. “We feel that the time is right now to introduce a new long-term owner who is going to make the commitments going forward and that will be positive for the community of Bear Mountain,” Cowan said. “We’re excited about the future for Bear Mountain. … It’s a good time to capitalize on Bear Mountain’s next stage of growth.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Tablets part of the new school curriculum Charla Huber

Did you know?

News staff

A quick tap of a screen can now define words, identify wildlife and answer questions in a second. The Sooke School District is working on a plan to bring tablet computers into all the elementary, middle and high schools in the area. “We are rolling out the iPad strategy in the next two years,” said School District 62 superintendent Jim Cambridge. Students often carry heavy knapsacks loaded with textbooks, but soon they may have the option to trade in the weight for a small tablet computer with all the textbooks downloaded onto it. While tablet computers may be the way of the future SD 62, Cambridge is quick to point out there will always be a place for books in the schools. “We want personalized education. Some kids need three books open in front of them covered in sticky notes to learn. If we made all students use iPads, that would be standardized learning, not personalized,” he said. Some students already have access to tablets at the schools, but Cambridge said more will be added to each school. Belmont secondary school has some blended learning classes that act as a cross between distance learning and a traditional classroom. Students in these classes already have the option to use electronic text books or paper ones. “Some kids learn better by handwriting, everybody has their ability learn in their own style,” Cambridge said. “Books are important

n Two new high schools are to open in September 2015 in the Sooke School District – one to replace Belmont secondary and the other to be built in Royal Bay. n With technology improving at a rapid rate and prices fluctuating, technology will be the last thing purchased. “The libraries in the new schools will probably look different from the Belmont library, it will be a learning commons,” said superintendent Jim Cambridge, explaining there will be more open spaces with large tables where students can work on projects together.

Charla Huber/News staff

Superintendent Jim Cambridge is excited the Sooke School District is bringing more tablet computers into the school, but said books will always have a place in the education system too. they are something that will be a part of out future hopefully forever.” All of the assignments are online and the students can login and work at their own pace. “I thought all the students would use the computers, but some prefer the books because they say they get distracted by Facebook,” Cambridge said. “It just depends on the kids.”

At this point the school district is undecided on what brand of computers to invest in, “It’s not the hardware that’s important.” Cambridge enjoys taking his own iPad with him and showing different apps from Myscript Calculator, which is popular with the students. He can doodle math problems with his finger on the screen and the question is solved in seconds.

Books on tablet have functions that aren’t possible on a traditional textbook. In an electronic version, Cambridge showed how a student can highlight a word on the page and up pops the definition. “Why use a thesaurus when you can just click on the word and find six other options for ‘rent,’” he said. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

n Yellowridge Construction will build the new Belmont secondary school near Glen Lake. “This is a huge leap forward to getting these schools built- a testament of our hard work,” said board of education chair Wendy Hobbs. “Now we can focus on the design, look and functionality of the new Belmont.” Construction is expected to begin this summer for the school to open in September 2015. The final build/design team for the Royal Bay school is scheduled to be chosen in late June. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Victoria school board opts to send needs budget Natalie North News staff

Trustees on the Greater Victoria Board of Education took a different tack to their advocacy, by demonstrating what they would be able to provide with a five per cent funding increase. Traditionally, the board supplies the ministry of education with a balanced budget given funds available, and one “needs budget,” an outline of the cost of providing for all of the district’s needs. This year, trustees wrote the advocacy budget with

• 5 Grand Prize choices!

the question in mind: what could each department provide with five per cent more resources? “We thought, let’s look at things a little differently in a way that might catch government’s eye,” said board chair Peg Orcherton. “It’s a smaller amount of money, but we’re trying to get the government to take a look at (restoration).” Orcherton is hopeful that the budget – which includes 38 full-time teachers, an aboriginal cultural curriculum integration teacher and 11 elementary school learning support teachers – will spark incremental funding increases, in addition to the

district’s underlying structural deficit of about $8 million annually. The 2013-14 needs budget additions total $5,818,261 and will be sent to the as-yet unnamed provincial minister of education. Last year’s needs budget of an additional $48.5 million reflected priorities brought forward by consultation with stakeholder groups, including union representatives. The board passed a 2013-14 operating budget of $195,672,515 in April. That figure includes a surplus balance of $16,483 to be carried forward and applied to the 2014-15 structural deficit.

Auxilliary cops on the money Kyle Wells News staff

You might not be able to use it in a vending machine, but for auxiliary constable Trevor Absolon a newly minted commemorative coin is priceless. Absolon’s nationally winning coin design was unveiled at the West Shore RCMP detachment on Thursday, May 23. Absolon was presented with the first minted coin, numbered ‘001’ and honoured during a ceremony featuring RCMP brass, Absolon’s fellow auxiliary constables and local dignitaries. The non-circulation commemorative coin features a pair of male and female auxiliary constables flanked by officers performing a variety of duties they commonly take on in their role. One is directing traffic, another is helping out a person in a wheelchair, while another is patrolling the community on a bicycle, a personal favourite task for Absolon. “The auxiliary program’s been a great program,” Absolon said.

Kyle Wells/News staff

West Shore RCMP auxiliary constable Trevor Absolon displays the first minted commemorative coin celebrating 50 years of the auxiliary program. “The different things I’ve seen and done, the people I’ve met, the new experiences. … I can’t think of anything quite as exciting and fulfilling.”

Absolon has been with the auxiliary force for two years and has a day job working as a

bylaw enforcement officer with the Songhees First Nation. With some graphic art experience, Absolon just thought he’d try his hand at the contest, with no serious ambitions to win. “I thought ‘I like doing artistic things, I’ve got some skills, I’ll just try,’” Absolon said. “It was fun, it was a good project to work on and it’s a nice piece to keep. Hopefully it’ll stay around in my family and we’ll display it somewhere. It was a bit of an honour.” The main challenge was trying to represent all the auxiliary program does in one coin, Absolon said. “The auxiliary program is incredibly diverse, so how do you come up with one design that encompasses all the different aspects of the program?” Absolon said. “The only way to really show how diverse the program is is to show all the different activities people do and even so you couldn’t capture all of them.” kwells@goldstream gazette.com

OUR VIEW

Needs budget seems needless For large organizations, creating a wish list can sometimes be a good exercise to help with goal-setting and determining future direction. In the case of the Greater Victoria School District, the exercise has become an annual event that indicates what the district could accomplish with more funding from government. In the years since dramatic cuts to the education ministry budget forced many districts to do the same, school trustees around B.C. have had to balance district budgets with lower than historic levels of funding from the province. To be fair, the needs-based budget, as the Victoria trustees call their wish list, accurately reflects the difficulties that board has in balancing its budget. But with no signs on the horizon that districts will receive significant financial relief from the province, using staff and trustee time to assemble such fantasy budgets and submit them to the minister of education seems a large waste of precious resources. Similar to department heads in a medium to large-sized private company, administrators at every school in the district must submit their own budgets. And if the overall numbers don’t work, the managers get sent back to find more savings. Using the needs budget as a subtle reminder to government that more money would be put to good use has become a tired show of political will that most taxpayers would rather do without. Making education of our children a motherhood issue is fine when there’s plenty of resources to go around. But with B.C.’s economy still stumbling along – a scenario created by far more forces than the provincial government – more education funding from government could only mean higher taxes for all of us. Many people are struggling to make ends meet these days and doing their best to get through this tough financial time. We expect the same approach from school trustees and ask that they stop acting like dreamers waiting to win the lottery jackpot. What do you think?

tech and other industries are coming to take advantage not only of lower commercial real estate costs, but also the attractive lower cost of family homes and the multiple new family amenities. Whether it is marine tech, defence tech or the many other kinds of high tech, staff retention is crucial and the West Shore presents a sure opportunity for these firms. Bursting with new businesses and new facilities especially for families and youth, the West Shore is an inviting and welcoming place. It’s a place where we all want to see one another succeed and where we are all committed to a healthy community – be it the wilderness pleasures of the Highlands, the rural peacefulness of Metchosin

or the booming urban centres of Langford, Colwood and View Royal. In fact, the smart money is investing in the West Shore, starting businesses and moving out to a better lifestyle, while others still hang on to outdated views and are missing out on tremendous opportunities. It’s time to give up the old downtown biases about the West Shore and come and participate in the healthy success, creativity and innovation of one of Canada’s fastest growing regions. And, hey, you might even make some money and enjoy yourself at the same time. It’s no longer the Dog Patch; it’s the Cat’s Meow. Dan Spinner is CEO of the WestShore Chamber of Commerce

LETTERS Pedestrian highway crossing a Consider speed-reduction critical interchange piece improvements for Goldstream Closing the intersection at Spencer Road and the Trans Canada Highway before building a pedestrian overpass is, I feel, a very ill-conceived move. This will be a major obstacle for older folks, and those who use mobility scooters as their means of transportation. The Ministry of Transportation must be convinced to build a pedestrian overpass, as a top priority, at this intersection. Joan Knowles Langford

Walking along Goldstream Avenue near where it runs into the highway is already challenging most mornings with commuters rushing off to work and there being no sidewalks on either side of the road. The playground zone speed limit near Shelby is largely ignored, yet this popular swimming hole will have drastically increased traffic flow just as the weather warms up and park usage increases when Goldstream replaces Spencer Road as the exit of choice for many up-island

commuters. Increased enforcement by police is only a temporary fix at best. Langford should either install speed bumps (as other neighbouring municipalities do, with no apparent reduction in response time for emergency vehicles) or should delay the interchange opening until the whole thing is finished, including a south bound exit ramp at Leigh Road. Unfortunately, I think this rush to eliminate the “road to nowhere” moniker is going to result in serious injury or even fatal consequences. R. Partridge Langford

In defense of guest columnist Gwyn Morgan I write today to defend the reputation of Gwyn Morgan, one of Canada’s top businessmen and a Victoria resident. Gwyn wrote a column prior to the election that encouraged us to vote Liberal for economic reasons. The thesis was that our quality of life, including needed environmental improvements, depends on good jobs and a strong economy. I thought the column was excellent and asked that it be published. After the election, the News Gazette published a Letter to the Editor disparaging

Gwyn and complaining that the column should not have been run (Letters, May 17). In particular the writer pilloried Gwyn for SNC-Lavalin’s bribery scandal. I have known Gwyn for a long time. He is a fine upstanding man. His columns run regularly in the Globe and Mail. I think he is the best business columnist we have in Canada today. As an engineer, not a financier, Gwyn built the biggest oil and gas company in Canada. He has also served on numerous boards of directors, one of which was

SNC-Lavalin, a worldwide engineering and construction company based in Montreal. SNC has 33,000 employees and does $8 billion of business each year. On Gwyn’s watch as chairman of the board SNC was found to have been paying bribes to get business. Top executives were let go. I have served on boards, though none the size of SNC. Almost all information comes to boards from company executives. If they don’t tell directors the truth and if company auditors, who randomly sample past

invoices and payments don’t catch a problem, boards don’t either. Gwyn didn’t step down when the scandal broke. He stayed on and led the cleanup of the company. In my view, executives like Gwyn should be praised, not slandered.

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Dr. Cameron McCrodan, Dr. Brent Morrison, Dr. Ann-Marie Stewart and Dr. Chris Snow

Your Travel Eyewear A very sensible patient suggested that I remind patients of eye related things they should pack when traveling. Spare glasses • Sunglasses Spare contact lenses A copy of the optical prescription (if traveling outside Canada) It is not just Murphy’s Law that causes those most in need of an optical correction to experience the most difficulty getting a quick replacement lens in an emergency situation. Complex, strong or difficult prescriptions can take longer to make. If you are helpless without your glasses, be prepared for loss or breakage. Whether in the jungle, on safari or on a luxury cruise, the nearest optical lab can be a long way off. Sunglasses are a must if you are headed for a sunny spot. You can slather sunscreen on your skin but it really stings if you try it in your eyes! Sunglasses purchased in Canada will generally provide adequate protection from ultra violet light. If you wear prescription glasses, matching clip-ons, photochromic lenses (glass or plastic) or separate sunglasses are all good options. Polarized lenses are particularly good if you plan to be on or near the water. Contact lens wearers should be especially careful to anticipate problems. If you wear expensive custom made contact lenses, you may balk at the idea of buying a spare pair. Disposable contact lenses might provide tolerable vision in an emergency even if not a precise match for your correction. Discuss this idea with your Optometrist. Contact lens wearers should wear glasses for long airplane flights because of the dry air supply. In fact, everyone could benefit from lubricating drops in these dry conditions. Contact lens wearers should also be aware that some countries have high levels of air pollution and contaminated water supplies so be careful about hygiene. Fastidiously wash your hands before handling your contact lenses. Montezuma can take revenge on your eyes as well as your tummy. Bring your own solutions if you are not sure of their availability at your destination Ask your Optometrist for advice about “back-up” eyewear and don’t wait until the last minute.

Speaking their mind is something Greater Victoria high school students enjoy doing, if the results of the inaugural Royal Oak Rotary Club public speaking competition are any measure. Finalists Ian Webber of S.J. Willis alternative school, Tamiko Sianen of Mount Douglas secondary and Alysha Rose of Stelly’s secondary, who go head-to-head tomorrow (May 30) at Spectrum Community School, are the cream of the crop among more than 100 students who presented their thoughts on a variety of topics at schoolbased and semifinal showdowns. Competition co-ordinator John Saunders, a retired university professor and current Rotary member, expected a handful of local schools to take him up on the request seeking students for this new event. Saunders was pleasantly surprised when 11 schools, eight in the Greater Victoria district and three in the Saanich district, took him up on the offer. The cash prizes of $1,000 for the winner, $750 for the runner-up and $500 for the thirdplace finisher were likely good motivators. The quality of many presentations has been stunning, he added. “When I sat in on the preliminary contest at Claremont, which had 14 students, some of them were exceptional,” he said. “I think the finals are going to be spectacular – I can just imagine what the top-notch students will do.” At the school level, students had a list of 12 topics to choose from. The 11 semifinalists picked from a list of eight, and finalists have five options, with just five days to prepare. The finals are open to the public and get underway at 6 p.m. A ticketed fundraiser dinner, Th catered by the Spectrum culinary arts program, H follows the event. th editor@vicnews.com

“Staff did recommend to the planning department fo they move forward with bylaw amendments, and that’s a scary thought,” Pattullo said. di “We didn’t feel as a community that the planning ne department was as open to talking to us as they co seemed to be to talking to the developer. I think co that process needs to change.” About 160 members of the public attended the M meeting and many spoke against the proposal. C “In the end, not everybody is going to be happy,” Lukens said. “We try to do the best that we can, the right thing for the community, and to keep us moving forward and committed to what many of us campaigned on, and that was to get more development in Colwood, increase the density in some areas.” The application also included a contribution of $3,000 per unit to the Community Amenity Reserve Fund, a standard aspect of development. Contributions of $500 per unit each would also have gone towards affordable housing, public art and beautification. Lukens anticipates a new proposal could come before committee in six to eight weeks. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Writer catches the cusp of a revolution Travis Paterson News staff

The glass is half full for beer writer Joe Wiebe. This week, the Victoria-based author is launching his new book, Craft Beer Revolution, which documents B.C.’s craft brewing movement from the early 1980s to present day. Wiebe spent some of his formative years during the 1990s working at the Belfry Theatre before he turned to penning stories for money. He loved beer – “who didn’t?” he said – but was skeptical he could make a go as a beer writer. He had a taste for selling beer stories, including a piece on Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub in the short-lived national men’s magazine Toro. His lightbulb moment came in 2008. Wiebe was on a trip to California to write about wine for a magazine, a walking trip with a dozen other wine writers through the Sonoma County vineyards. “By the second night they staged an intervention. They said, ‘all you talk about is beer, you should be writing about beer,’” Wiebe said. “It lit the spark in my head. (I thought), ‘Okay, maybe there is a way to do it.’ I kind Made for families: print of scoffed at it, but then went with it.” 10.3125 x 7 in Ad He was in the right place at the right time.

Brewpub in 1984. Victoria is a hotbed for craft breweries, as is Vancouver, all part of the world famous Pacific Northwest brewing scene. And the movement is continuing to grow with Wiebe riding the wave. “I have to laugh,” he said. “If I knew as a 21 year old, moving to Victoria from Niagara-onthe-Lake, Ont., that I’d be publishing a book on beer, the 21-year-old me would’ve been pretty happy.” There are 50 craft Travis Paterson/News staff breweries in B.C. with Joe Wiebe launches his first book, Craft Beer Revolution, 12 more set to open in at Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub today (May 29).

many great people working at local breweries who have helped increase the profile of craft beer in smaller communities.” As much as the craft beer industry is alive and thriving, Wiebe’s book was nearly shelved. While working on revisions in October, Wiebe received notice his publisher, Douglas & MacIntyre, was in bankruptcy protection. Harbour Publishing bought D&M in January and the book was back on schedule. Wiebe is holding book launches for Craft Beer Revolution at brewpubs across B.C., beginning with Spinnakers today (May 29) at 7 p.m. He will speak about the book and the movement in general, while Spinnakers has brewed a cask-conditioned beer just for the event. Buy a book and you get a beer. Craft Beer Revolution is available at Chapter’s, Bolen’s, Munro’s and other bookstores, as well as Spinnakers and other breweries and brewpubs. sports@vicnews.com

Tenore bring message of hope Three-time Gospel Music Association of Canada award winners The Tenors perform June 7 at Saanich Baptist Church, 4347 Wilkinson Rd. The tenors are currently making their way home from Kampala, Uganda where they reminded the women and children of Watoto that they’ll never walk alone in their journey to change the future and bring about a new generation of leaders. Watoto, which was founded by Gary and Marilyn Skinner, was initiated in response to the growing number of vulnerable and orphaned children in Uganda. On their return, the tenors are embarking on a multi-city Canadian tour highlighting their work with Watoto and inspiring others with their music for change. The trip to Uganda is a continuation of the vision of Jill Ann Siemens, founder of The Tenors (previously known as The Canadian Tenors). Her work has encompassed creating musical projects that help the world’s most needy and vulnerable children. Through a God-given inspiration and vision that is now being carried forward by The Tenors, millions of dollars have been raised in support of Bulembu International, a tiny town in Swaziland caring for orphaned and abandoned children.

Photo contributed

World-class trio The Tenors perform at Saanich Baptist Church on June 7. After that successful endeavour, her dream of helping the world's most vulnerable continued. Siemens had been looking for another similar opportunity where she could connect her latest project, Tenore, with a humanitarian organization which and found that opportunity with Watoto. “Our overall mission is to bring joy and healing through our music and to get our hands dirty helping women and chil-

dren,” Siemens said. Tenore donates 10 per cent of all CD sales to Watoto and raises sponsorships at concerts. The Victoria concert starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Children under 12 are free. Tickets are available at Christian Book & Music Store 250-384-7534, the Saanich Baptist Church 250-7442020 and Ivy's Books 250-5982713. llavin@vicnews.com

V

eteran boogie woogie blues performer David Vest is about to step into a boxing ring for the first time in his life. His opponent: a 10-foot Steinway grand piano. The Alabama-raised Victoria import will hit the centre ring at Colwood’s Olson’s Gym (520 Mt. View Ave.) on Saturday, June 1 to play the inaugural musical concert at the sports venue. Playing with the likes of Big Joe Turner and Tammy Wynette, Vest learned his chops from some of the best, before Kyle Wells going on to become a noted Reporting musician in his own right. A Canadian woman drew Vest to Victoria, and he has since played across Canada. Last year he won a Maple Blues award for best piano player of the year. “It’s great to be away from tornados and rattlesnakes and alligators,” Vest said. “I have a nice following here.” This will be Vest’s first show on the West Shore. “It’s my first time ever, except coming to shop at Costco,” Vest said, laughing. Performing in the gym reminds Vest of the chicken shack dances he used to go to as a young man in the deep South, even if he wasn’t supposed to. “Young and old, black and white, all forgetting themselves and having a good time on the dance floor,” Vest said. “I’d like to be able to make this happen. We’re going to try our best.” Vest will bring drummer Damian Graham with him, along with some other supports he’s keeping quiet about for now. Olson’s owner Alan Olson, a longtime jazz and blues fan, saw Vest play at Hermann’s Jazz Club and was blown away by the talent and energy. He sensed at once this is music to dance to. “I’m thinking ‘why don’t we put this guy in a boxing ring,’” Olson said. “His music just gets right inside you. It’s that kind of music.

He sings, he talks, he’s just a totalpackage entertainer.” Part of the gym will be set aside for dancing, while another will have tables. The gym also has a liquor licence and will offer wine and beer. “I find at my shows, even if people are ordered not to get up and dance, they do it,” Vest said. If the event goes off well the plan is to host other concerts at the gym. “We’ve got all this Western Community and if you want to go in and listen to music, basically nobody out here is doing it,” Olsen said. “(There’s) world class musicians and they got nowhere to play.” Tickets are $20 for floor and $30 for balcony, and are available Lyle’s Place, Ditch Records and CDs and Olson’s Gym. Call 250-474-4424 for more information and reservations. Doors are at 6:30 p.m., with a 7:30 p.m. start time for the show. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Fundraising targets $375,000 toward

leading-edge scanner

for Royal Jubilee

The Victoria Hospitals Foundation launched its spring campaign last Wednesday to help fund a $1.4-million Gamma-CT Scanner for Royal Jubilee Hospital. The foundation hopes to raise $375,000. “This leading edge equipment combines two imaging technologies in one exam, which means patients receive a complete diagnosis sooner, and medical imaging waitlists are reduced for everyone,” said Alan Lowe, vice-chair of the foundation. The Gamma-CT scanner takes two scans at precisely the same time, combining a nuclear medicine scan with a CT scan. This creates one high-resolution image that captures everything doctors need for a diagnosis in just one appointment, allowing patients

Royal Jubilee Hospital has the only medical imaging department on the Island with a Gamma-CT Scanner. “To pinpoint a tumour or find the exact location of an infection or serious bone pain, a patient could previously go through two or more medical scans,” said radiologist Dr. Kevin Forkheim. “But now, the high-definition images taken with the Gamma-CT Scanner provide a real time picture of how disease is impacting a person’s body. “This means we can offer treatments or surgeries that are as precise as possible.

Approximately two weeks prior to the opening of the Leigh Road Interchange the intersection of Goldstream Avenue and Leigh Road will be changed to become a 4-way stop. It was determined that this was the safest manner in which to operate this intersection on the opening day of the interchange. Traffic travelling on Goldstream west to Leigh Road will get a dedicated and protected right hand turn lane and will not be required to stop at the 4-way stop. A traffic signal will replace the 4-way stop at Goldstream Avenue and Leigh Road at some point in the future when traffic volumes warrant it.

The 26Th annual BC ChilDren’s hOsPiTal’s MiraCle WeekenD

BC Children’s Hospital helps kids get care closer to home Keira Caillet’s parents have reason to smile when their six-year-old daughter jumps on her bicycle to go for a ride, particularly when her destination is the office of Victoriabased pediatric cardiologist Dr. Brian Sinclair. Sinclair, a partner of BC Children’s Hospital’s Children’s Heart Center, and his team provide Vancouver Island children and families with many aspects of cardiac care from diagnosis on. Those children requiring cardiac surgery or procedures receive that critical care at Children’s and return to Vancouver Island for follow up. Seeing Keira today, it’s hard to believe her life once hung in the balance. Born with a major heart defect, she received lifesaving heart surgery at BC Children’s Hospital when she was two weeks old. During the next four years, she and her parents made frequent trips to BC Children’s Hospital for specialized care. “It’s so much easier now that we have access to most of the care Keira needs here in Victoria,” says Cherie Caillet, Keira’s mother. “No more 6 a.m. ferry rides. The trip to the doctor now takes less than five minutes, or perhaps a bit more if Keira wants to go by bike.”

Sinclair sees BC Children’s Hospital patients in Victoria and in a pediatric ambulatory clinic at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, which was established with support from Child Health BC, an initiative of BC Children’s Hospital aimed at ensuring all BC children have access to a consistent standard of care no matter where in the province they live. Sinclair also sits on the steering committee of Child Health BC, evaluating issues such as provincewide access to specialty care. “The fact that Keira 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. “Every year people from across the province make donations in support of the hospital and it makes a huge difference,” says Gold. “Keira Caillet is proof of that.” Cherie Caillet couldn’t agree more. “When we got to Dr. Sinclair’s office it was so great to hear Keira tell him how awesome she is, that she rode her bike to his office without training wheels and that mommy was running really fast and could barely keep up,” she says. “There was a time when I couldn’t imagine that I would ever hear that.”

last year, 2,236 children from Vancouver island made 6,615 visits to BC Children’s hospital. Five hundred of those children came from Victoria.

JUNE 1 & 2, 2013 On June 1 and 2, tune in to Miracle Weekend, broadcast live from BC Children’s Hospital, on Global BC from 7:00pm on Saturday, June 1 until 5:30pm on Sunday, June 2 The 26th annual BC Children’s Hospital’s Miracle Weekend is a two-day celebration that showcases the best of BC Children’s Hospital: patients, their families, caregivers and supporters who come from every corner of BC. BC Children’s Hospital receives over 200,000 visits from patients from across the province every year. Donations help the hospital deliver the best in care every day, and are helping to prepare for the future by supporting the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital and better access to care for children in or close to their home communities. Please support BC Children’s Hospital.

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.

Willway team boasts one girl Madison pulls her own weight Charla Huber News staff

Charla Huber/News staff

Delaney Madison, of Willway elementary, fights to pass opponent Dylan Larratt of Hans Helgesen elementary.

Delaney Madison is a force to be reckoned with on the field. The 11-year-old is still learning the ropes of soccer, but proved herself during the one-month elementary school soccer season. Eager to lace up for her school team only to hear not enough girls were interested, Madison was invited to play on the boys team. “The school offered for me to play. I just thought they would let me practise with them, I didn’t think I would get to play games,” said the Grade 5 student at Willway elementary. On the field Madison is quick and fierce often outrunning her opponents to the ball. She hasn’t noticed much of a difference being the only girl but admits,

“Sometimes I can’t get as many goals as if I was playing against girls.” Other than a braid whipping in the air as she runs, nothing sets her apart from her teammates. “She is competitive and doesn’t shy away from the ball,” said coach and Willway vice-principal Greg Dodds. “She is fast and furious.” At the Sooke School District boy’s soccer jamboree, May 23, Delaney’s skills caught the attention of teachers and parents throughout the district who commented on how well she played and held her own against the 200 other players. “I am proud of her, she is pretty good and I think it’s neat she’s playing on this team,” said her mom Maria Madison.

He ran it really well,” said race organizer Dave Milne. “But the really impressive showing was Marilyn Arsenault breaking Cheryl Murphy’s women’s record.” Arsenault, a noted opera singer, is in the 45-49 category, and ran the half in a time of 1:17:33.

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