West Shore homes needed for temporary youth housing Kyle Wells News staff

As the number of families grows on the West Shore, so to does the need for temporary housing for troubled youth. The Boys & Girls Club Services of Greater Victoria is putting out the word it is looking for homes on the West Shore willing to temporarily house youth in need of a place to stay.

“These are pretty high-needs, vulnerable kids,” said youth and family services manager Ellie James. “You can’t heal from trauma until you feel safe and secure.” Langford resident Laurie Falk takes part in the program for young mothers. Her home has an extra suite, so she gives either pregnant youth or young mothers, typically between 16 to 21 years old, a place to stay. The youth come into the program during pregnancy and stay for one

year. “I love it,” Falk said. “This is something that I’ve actually wanted to do for a very long time. I’m happy to have this opportunity to do it.” So far Falk has hosted one youth and said there hasn’t been any problems, only benefits. She said she has enjoyed making friends with other care home parents and has found helping out in the community rewarding.

“We think of our gal as just an extension of our family. … You have to understand young people, perhaps understand what it could be like for them.” On the West Shore the need is primarily for housing for youth dealing with either addiction, youth justice or sexual exploitation.

Black Press files

The makeup of the B.C. legislature remains almost the same as it has been for the past four years, although there are numerous new faces on both sides.

Ian Franklin and Sylvain Audy

Black Press

More than 1.8 million people voted in the May 14 provincial election, for a turnout of 58 per cent of eligible voters, up from the all-time low of 51 per cent in 2009. The 2013 turnout rebounded to the same level as the 2005 election. Going back to 1983 vote, more than 70 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots, but the turnout steadily declined after that to 55 per cent in 2001. The number of eligible voters has risen over the years with population growth. As a result, the B.C. Liberals got nearly 44,000 more votes this year than they did in 2009, with the NDP total increasing by 24,000. Overall, 161,000 more people voted in this election than four years ago. Elections BC completed its final count Wednesday, including 180,000 ballots cast by people outside their home constituencies. That was double the 2009 total for absentee ballots, and accounted for much of the increase in turnout over four years ago. Absentee ballots reversed one close result, giving NDP candidate Selina Robinson a 35-vote win over B.C. Liberal Steve Kim in Coquitlam-Maillardville. That result will be subject to a judicial recount, where a judge examines all 21,000 ballots to confirm the outcome. If the count is upheld, Robinson becomes the 34th NDP MLA, facing off against 49 B.C. Liberals in a legislature that has almost the same party division as in the past four years. Delta South independent Vicki Huntington and the B.C. Green Party’s Andrew Weaver in Oak Bay-Gordon Head round out the 85-seat legislature. In another close race, Saanich North and the Islands, NDP candidate Gary Holman extended his margin of victory to 163 votes once absentee ballots were added to the election-night total that had him 50 votes ahead. Once the results are made official June 5, MLAs can be sworn in and Premier Christy Clark can announce her cabinet lineup. Clark will also reveal where she will seek a seat, having lost VancouverPoint Grey to the NDP’s David Eby. Clark has said several B.C. Liberal MLAs have offered to step aside for her, and she is considering running for a seat outside her home city of Vancouver.

Planting for prom Charla Huber Reporting


Portables rummaged at Belmont

Five portable classrooms were broken into at Belmont secondary school last weekend when someone entered them damaging the portable doors in the process. A laptop monitor was smashed in one of the classrooms, while an iPad, a laptop, some DVDs and about $80 in cash were missing in others. “The damage to the property and the theft of the items impacts our teachers, our students and forces the school district to use funds to pay for repairs and replacements,” Cst. Kathy Rochlitz said. West Shore RCMP ask that anyone with information call the detachment at 250-474-2264.

Missing: missing dog posters

Belmont students help build new park at Glen Lake

On April 30 a seven-year-old Jack Russell terrier named Maulie went missing from its Highlands home on Emma Dixon Road. Owner Tracy Patterson and her family put up ‘missing’ posters only to find out that somebody was tearing them down. Another family with a missing dog experienced the same problem. In each case only the dog posters were torn down, not the others around them. “It’s been very peculiar,” Patterson said. “It drew our attention away from trying to find our dog for the first little while, to the point where we were just angry.” Patterson’s son even staked out a poster to try and catch someone in the act, with no success. The family called West Shore RCMP to report the poster dam- Maulie age. While there likely isn’t anything illegal about removing the posters, RCMP still ask that anyone with information call either the detachment at 250-474-2264 or the dog’s owners at 250-474-5103. A reward is being offered for Maulie, who is described as being timid but approachable.


ripping in mud on a gloomy rainy day, Grade 12 students from Belmont secondary school earn their keep or in this case, their grad party. “It’s a great way to help the environment and it makes the community look so much better,” said Metchosin teen Courtney Guss. About 20 students gearing up for grad spent a day in the mud planting native riparian plants at Glen Lake Park in Langford. The city gave the school $10,000 for its dry grad activities held at City Centre Park June 15 and in turn asked student volunteers to help with the project. “We are very enthusiastic they are here,” said Jane Waters, Langford park planner. “I think it’s going to be their successors at the new Belmont (high school), who will come down here to enjoy water sports or for a biology or botany class.” The students planted skunk cabbage, iris flowers and sedges as part of the infiltration rain garden. “Instead of us having culverts on the roads we are directing the water to the lake through the plants that uptake the toxins,” said Waters.


‘Spoofing’ causes concern Charla Huber/News staff

Emily Besler-Dean plants sedges as Grade 12 students volunteer at Glen Lake Park to thank Langford for its $10,000 to Belmont secondary school’s dry grad. Left: Courtney Guss cuts morning glory and blackberry bushes at Glen Lake Park. Emily Besler-Dean was happy to volunteer her day carrying stones and building the rain garden. “This is a great way for us to spend the day giving back to our community, it’s the least we can do for the donation from the city,” said the Colwood teen. Glen Lake Park, with a beach, playground, picnic tables and field, will officially open at the end of June.

Phone scammers using technology to make caller IDs display legitimate business names and/or numbers are giving RCMP in Greater Victoria some grief. West Shore RCMP received a call on Monday from a View Royal woman who got a suspicious call about winning a trip. The woman checked the number displayed on her caller ID, and found out it was the number to a local RCMP detachment. She confronted the caller and the caller hung up. This trick has become known as “spoofing” and it is a way for scammers to add apparent legitimacy to their calls. “It’s been happening in the Victoria area, it’s been popping up with different companies and agencies, not always the RCMP,” said Cst. Kathy Rochlitz. The RCMP does not solicit over the phone, nor does it offer any giveaways.

Belmont music students ready for showcase


elmont students are shining up their horns and clearing out their spit valves as they prepare for their annual Year End Concert at the school on June 6. Every year the music department gives its students the chance to showcase all they’ve learned over the past year and entertain the public with a top-notch year end extravaganza. “We have an immense amount of talent here at Belmont and it never ceases to amaze me, the amount of creativity that comes out of these students.” said music director Mandart Chan. “There’s some guiding ... but it’s not teacher driven, it’s all within themselves.” Kyle Wells Grade 10 student Justin Reporting Lavoie is excited to take part in his first Year End Concert. “I pursued it in middle school and then I really wanted to pursue it here because I already knew the music program was really awesome,” Lavoie said. “It’s been my first year and it’s gone really well. It’s like its own little family here.” Lavoie looks forward to performing “It Was a Lover and His Lass” with the choir, a tune based on a Shakespeare poem and arranged by the Swingle Sisters. “It’s an upbeat, kind of love jazzy tune. It’s nice,” Lavoie said. “It’s not just a high school performance, it’s actually a bunch of musicians getting together and putting on a real show.” Katie Gray, who graduates from Belmont this year, has been involved in music from a young age, growing up in a musical family. “It’s kind of the one thing here at Belmont that’s kept me sane,” Gray said. “It’s a community, sort of a family group of people. It’s really cool to see how everyone builds each other up.” Gray looks forward to performing the African song “Shosholoza” and “Lassus Trombone,” for which there will be 13 trombones playing, including current and former student musicians.

Dr. Cameron McCrodan, Dr. Brent Morrison, Dr. Ann-Marie Stewart and Dr. Chris Snow Your Sight Is Our Vision • Comprehensive eye exams with the latest equipment, including Optomap ultra-wide retinal imaging

• Prescription lenses including wide field progressive, high index lenses, and prescription sunglasses

• Contact lens fittings with new developments for sports, extended wear, astigmatism correction, and bifocal contacts

• On-site lens edging with a large selection of frames and sunglasses in stock, and a custom order service available

Multiple stages will be set up ahead of time to keep the flow of the evening moving and to maximize the music. There will be a stage for choral groups, one for the jazz bands and another for the concert band. “We basically transform our south gym into this spectacular concert hall,” said Chan. “No one notices that it’s even the gym anymore.” The night will also feature student-led combos and soloists, featuring music the students prepared themselves. Sometimes this includes original pieces. One Grade 10 combo will play a Red Hot Chilli Peppers song and the Grade 12 musicians will be perform an original composition by peer Jordan Beischer. “It’s a very heartfelt composition that he wrote,” Chan said. “It truly incorporates his 13 years in the Sooke School District and it’s a bit of tearjerker.” The night will include seven performance ensembles, including concert band, two jazz bands, concert choir, two vocal jazz groups and the R&B band. Jazz combos will also be featured, along with the solo combos. The concert starts at 6 p.m. and runs until about 8 p.m. Admission is by donation and the concert is open to the public.

Kyle Wells/News staff

Katie Gray, Grade 12, and Justin Lavoie, Grade 10, will be performing along with the rest of Belmont secondary school’s music students for the school’s year end concert on Thursday.

New guide opens trails Partnership work highlights accessibility A new publication of easyto-use trails to walk, wheel and hike in the outdoors is now available in Greater Victoria. A Guide to User-Friendly Trails is a pilot project developed through a partnership between CRD Regional Parks, the Intermunicipal Advisory Committee on Disability Issues and West Shore Parks and Recreation. “A Guide to User-Friendly Trails is a new tool created as a result of the partnership to show opportunities that are suitable to individuals of diverse ages, levels of mobility and endurance,” said CRD Regional Parks Committee Chair Susan Brice. “Our collective

parks contribute to the overall quality of life and well-being of all residents of the Capital Regional District and this guide reflects that.” The guide contains 48 pages of full colour photographs, maps and descriptions of userfriendly trails within Capital Regional District parks and West Shore municipalities. It highlights trails welcoming to all ages and individuals with diverse levels of mobility and endurance, providing visitors with trail profiles and information to enable them to determine which parks and amenities to visit based on their own levels of ability. “West Shore Parks and Recreation is dedicated to providing diverse and accessible recreation opportunities and excellent experiences for healthy

active lifestyles,” said Bobbi Neal, community development coordinator of West Shore Parks and Recreation. “The power of partnerships demonstrates how together we can do more through leveraging grant funding, combining internal resources, community involvement and by fostering inclusion,” said Marnie Essery, chair of IACDI. “We invite you to use this guide to go beyond the parking lot and experience user-friendly trails in your community.” Pick up A Guide to UserFriendly Trails at Capital Regional District offices, recreation centres, and West Shore municipal halls. It is available for download at

Kids need families offering flexibility Continued from Page A1

“They come into our program with the idea that they’re moving on somewhere,” James said. The ideal length of time is six months. After that the youth are expected to move on, either back to their families, to self-sufficiency or, at times, into foster care. “They are kids who have had a hard time,”

Funding woes The West Shore Youth Housing Task Force continues to seek funding to establish a youth shelter on the West Shore. Chair Bill McIlroy said there are plenty of houses available, but the startup and operating funds must be in place before anything can move forward. “There’s lots of houses we can rent, there’s lots of places we can buy, but it’s the startup,” McIlroy said. “I’m optimistic. Things are moving along in the right direction, although much slower than I’d like.” The group is talking with a foundation in Vancouver over the next couple of weeks in the hopes of securing some more funds.

James said. “On the other side of it, they’re just kids. They’re just kids who need a safe, secure place to live and we want families who are willing to … establish a relationship with them.” The ideal homes are those with flexible schedules, with occupants who like youth and are open to working with them. The newly retired are considered ideal participants, but all ages and stages of families take part. Anyone interested must go through a screening process and then ongoing monitoring. All youth involved also have a family worker they work with and on-call support is available from the Boys and Girls Club at all times. Homes which take part in the program are paid a retainer for being available and a per diem based on the expectations of what housing the youth will require. Anyone interested in taking part is asked to call Erin Dusdal at the Boys and Girls Club at 250-6869114 or visit

Elect senate or abolish it In the minds of many Canadians, the purpose of the Canadian Senate is a bit of a mystery. It’s a body that’s not elected, what it accomplishes is less than clear, and news about it only erupts when politicians talk about reform, or more recently, when senators play fast and loose with the purse strings of taxpayers. The original purpose of the Senate was to give a sober second thought to bills passed by elected Members of Parliament, and, according to its website, to bolster underrepresented groups, such as women, aboriginal people and minorities. When it comes to being a champion of aboriginal, women’s or minority rights, the Senate is perhaps the last organization that leaps to mind. As well intentioned as the Senate was when created in 1867, today the body is effectively a patronage system for the ruling party to reward loyal and often high-profile Canadians with prestigious well-paid jobs. A more cynical interpretation is the Senate acts as no more than a slush fund to carry out political favours. This week B.C. Premier Christy Clark reiterated her stance that the Senate should be abolished. She said if that’s not possible, B.C. will start electing its senators in an attempt to bring some validity to the body which cost Canadians $106 million in 2012 (minus the $90,000 paid back by senator Mike Duffy). Prime Minister Stephen Harper has long advocated reforming Senate terms and appointment procedures, or even doing away with it altogether. That hasn’t stopped Harper from appointing 56 Conservative senators (and two elected in Alberta) over his time in office. If Parliament can’t abolish the Senate or it accepts that it has a reason to exist, change is desperately needed. The number of senators per province isn’t based on population and it’s not supposed to be, but the current distribution is all over the map. Does it make sense that New Brunswick and Nova Scotia have 10 senators each and Quebec has 24, while Alberta has six and B.C. has five? For the Senate to have credibility, rather than act as a vehicle for patronage and self-serving party loyalty, each province should have an equal number of elected senators, perhaps two or four each. Senators themselves should not be sitting silent, and should be seeking to reform an institution that has no accountability or credibility in terms of working in the interests of Canadians.

VicPD deputy accepts challenge to 3,000 to 5,000 false calls per year Last week in the News, Saanich and allowed us to direct scarce Mayor Frank Leonard threw down resources to providing actual police somewhat of an editorial gauntlet service to the community, in front of VicPD with not window dressing. his views on community I’ve been writing for policing and Saanich’s “no nearly four years now on policing call too small” a blog about the work of policy. our officers on the streets Mayor Leonard’s words of Esquimalt and Victoria. were clear enough, but Whether it’s helping an his unspoken implication elderly person get back is also pretty simple: into their bed, or rescuing Saanich provides a dog from an overheated a comprehensive car, I remain amazed at community-based John Ducker the number of “small approach to policing, Guest column calls” our uniformed which works, while response officers routinely Victoria and Esquimalt handle with courteous and diligent provide a limited, reactive call professionalism. response approach, which doesn’t. In addition, as I scan our Unfortunately, most of Mayor organizational chart I see that we Leonard’s assertions are false or inaccurate and I’m mystified why he devote approximately 17 full-time staff members to what I consider feels the need to keep taking these community policing functions, be shots at us. they community resource officers, For example, Mayor Leonard school liaison, integrated outreach asserts that VicPD does not attend teams or volunteer co-ordinators. false alarms, noisy house parties Many of our programs have and break and enters.

This has saved our areas, which most certainly taxpayers the costs of responding

includes Saanich. The criminal element of these groups ply their trade on the streets of our downtown core and often retire to the bedroom communities, where not enough attention is paid to them. After 34 years I could fill a police notebook with instances where outlying agencies have either declined outright or simply don’t have the true capacity to deal with serious criminal elements living in their communities, leaving it to VicPD to handle or simply allow the problem to be ignored. The model of regional integration currently being discussed won’t help either. It doesn’t go far enough to include core policing functions such as traffic, identification units, detectives or K9 and how we could use economy of scale to reduce all of our workloads. It unfortunately has remained at the level of things like the dive team, used by VicPD once in the last two years, and other ancillary functions which have virtually no meaningful impact on anyone’s policing services. It also creates a cumbersome process of management by consensus, where four or more people end up being in charge and no one is actually accountable for service delivery. So to respond to Mayor Leonard’s question: “Are you willing to pay for the cost of this community policing model?” My answer is: “I wish I could afford to, by freeing up the taxpayers and officers of Esquimalt and Victoria from having to subsidize your luxury.” John Ducker is deputy chief for administration with the Victoria Police Department.

LETTERS ‘Greenest neighbourhood’ a fallacy Re: “A one-man green machine” (News, May 17) The first sentence claims “Gordon Head is the greenest neighbourhood in the country.” What a sad and astonishing statement. Oak Bay-Gordon Head may have elected a Green party candidate, but there is pathetically little evidence to demonstrate that the residents are “green” in any meaningful way. Just putting a blue box at the curb doesn’t cut it. I live in the riding and during the election had a close look at the houses that put up Green party signs. One would expect these residences to stand out as examples of environmentally friendly living. Not so. I have no way of knowing whether Green party voters grow all the food they eat, weave all their own clothes and make their own shoes. But when it comes to transport, I can verify they get around just the same as everyone else. Many homes I checked had multiple vehicles in the driveway and more

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Green party MLA-elect for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, Andrew Weaver, celebrates with party leader Jane Sterk after he was elected May 14. than half had an SUV, the most inefficient and polluting class of passenger vehicles. I saw more pickup trucks than hybrids and not one electric car. It is easy to observe that Green voters behave just like the rest of the population, in which commuters overwhelmingly choose private cars over the bus and only a handful bike to work. One expects Green party supporters to be avid users of solar power, but I saw only one

or two solar hot-water panels and no solar-electric arrays on any of the houses. Even if they heed Capital Regional District watering restrictions, Green party voters should be keen water conservationists. I saw no evidence of rainwater recovery systems. Planted roofs? Didn’t see one. The riding is characterized by aging, conventionally built, single-family homes on separate lots, normally kept tidy with highly polluting gas mowers and trimmers. If all this makes Gordon Head “the greenest neighbourhood” in Canada, our species is doomed for sure. The past 12 years and the recent election have shown that the B.C. Liberals care little about facts, scientific evidence or the truth. In the face of this and as the only MLA for his party, Andrew Weaver may find, ironically, that his speeches in the legislature achieve little more than an incremental rise in global warming. Don White Saanich

Readers respond: Viewfield biosolids plant option Details still missing from sewage coverage While I appreciate that the News continues to explore the sewage treatment issue, please reflect the complexity of the situation in your editorial. Give us the details about the painstaking and costly studies that were undertaken, because it is my understanding that that is exactly the problem, there were little or no studies and much money has been spent with minimal community involvement. And some of the studies that were done recommend a very different approach than the one the Capital Regional District is bullishly pursuing, i.e. smaller operations throughout the region and extraction of materials for re-use;  the shaming headline that the Esquimalt/Vic West community is passing the sewage buck, while a catchy phrase is very misleading. Historically this area has more than done its share. It has been the site of industries that left a legacy of pollution that is only now being remedied. It is becoming a vibrant community with families proudly reclaiming the older houses and new and innovative housing and businesses, including Dockside Green, that unlike the CRD proposal, produces drinkable water from its more technologically advanced sewage treatment system. I am concerned that

the members of the CRD committee, now that they have spent so much money as well as risked their personal reputations by backing a flawed approach, will no longer be able to make an unbiased decision. Our region voted in 2007 not to have centralized sewage treatment. There is no hurry to do this. Let’s take the time to get it right. We are all in this together and we all live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Susan Webber Victoria

Other choices available for sewage plants The Viewfield Road site in Esquimalt is the wrong choice for a sludge plant, given its small size as well as close proximity to residences, schools, a grocery store and many other businesses. And no, I am not happy that my house is a mere 400 metres downwind from the site – more than 200 residences are within 600 metres. Perhaps the complete treatment facility could be built on the McLaughlin point site if only DND would release some adjacent land for sludge treatment. That is unlikely to happen, as the release of such lands by the federal government would likely be met by an instantaneous land claim from the relevant First Nations. So why doesn’t the Capital

Regional District expropriate a bigger, better site? Why not build these facilities on any golf club in the area, or the south part of Government House property in Victoria, or in Beacon Hill Park, or Uplands Park, or unused land at the University of Victoria, etc. That will not happen of course – the underlying criterion here appears to be ‘no effluent near the affluent.’ I’m sure that none of the councillors on the CRD sewage committee who are pressing for the Viewfield site live anywhere near it. Just whom are they serving? I hope Esquimalt council does all it can to block the Viewfield site. Roel Hurkens Victoria

CRD traffic commission focuses on crotches

The Capital Regional District is targeting drivers who continue to use phones while driving with a new eyebrow-raising public awareness campaign. ‘Crotches Kill’ is the brainchild of the CRD Traffic Safety Commission, targeting drivers who leave phones on their laps in an attempt to evade police officers. “Everyone who sees you looking at your crotch knows exactly what you’re doing, and it’s stupidly dangerous,” said Staff Sgt. Frank Wright, head • A11

Victoria art gallery eyes expansion Board of directors decides to keep facility at its Moss Street location Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

A Victoria institution will root in its historic site on Moss Street, after three decades of seeking space downtown. “We’ve been looking 33 years for a place downtown,” said Jon Tupper, director of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. “If it didn’t happen in the last 30 years, it’s not going to happen in the next 10 years.” Spencer Mansion was donated by Sarah Spencer in 1951. Today the site includes several adjacent galleries. “It’s a beautiful building, and they have built on the modern additions, so what we need to do is build on that and make it better,” said Joan Huzar, member of the Associates of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, which promotes

neighbourhood – it’s strange but strange in a positive way.” The gallery at 1040 Moss St. is removed from the bustle of downtown, but the director, volunteers and Tourism Victoria don’t see location as a hindrance. “The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is one of Canada’s finest art museums,” said Holly Lenk, manager of travel media relations for Tourism Victoria. “Its location, just five minutes outside of downtown Victoria, is easily accessible and just a couple of blocks from Don Denton/Black Press Craigdarroch Castle.” Besides, pedestrian Art Gallery of Greater Victoria director Jon Tupper: ‘It’s a beautiful location. It’s unique – we’re in a residential neighbourhood – it’s strange traffic isn’t a consideration, Tupper but strange in a positive way.’ said. “When people leave “If we had an extra 10,000 square and fundraises for the gallery. their door or their hotel room they feet we could stay here another 10 After a feasibility study, know exactly where they’re going,” architects said it would be unlikely years and maybe longer,” Tupper he said. “They will look you up and said. “It’s a beautiful location.

Tourists only make up 25 per cent of visitors to the gallery. “We’re here for our local community first and foremost that’s our primary audience,” Tupper said. Space for more functions and programs would also generate revenue, he added. Currently the gallery is 40 per cent government funded. “Right now we see government’s retreating more and more from being involved in culture … We have to fill that in,” Tupper said. “We have to be able to keep the doors open.” With the decision to stay, last fall the gallery issued a request for proposals seeking architects who could add the required space, while maintaining the look of the neighbourhood. “We’re not doing a good job of that,” Tupper said, citing the Moss Street side as an example. “It needs to be fixed up so it looks a little bit more like the neighbourhood … make it a real gem of a building … that’s in harmony with the place we’re situated.”

Bentall celebrates 25 years News staff

Barney Bentall and the Legendary Hearts hit the stage next month at the Mary Winspear Centre. The show, presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment and 100.3 the Q!, features the Vancouver-based Bentall, who has been creating music since 1978. The band's debut album featured three songs, Something to Live For, House of Love (is Haunted) and Come Back to Me, that became instant hits and the six albums that followed were also

well-received. Their self-titled debut reached platinum status in Canada and garnered a Juno Award for Most Promising Group of the Year in 1989. In addition, the group was nominated for a Genie Award for Restless Dreamer in 1990. The Sidney show includes special guest Nicola Linde, a powerful singer, songwriter and musician. Her intense lyrics are delivered with big vocals. An artist with an edge, her perspective is definitely female. With a strong stance and assertive delivery, she has the energy and passion to stand

out from the crowd. With such songs as Cream For Your Coffee, This Time and The Other Woman, Linde reveals her thoughts on being a young woman today in a way that transcends gender. She gives forth on love gone wrong and jobs that didn’t go right, heartache, soul-searching and triumph with songs that are raw, confessional and emotional. For more information, go to For tickets to the show ($37.50) on Wednesday, June 5 at 7 p.m. call 250-656-0275 or go

An enthusiastic hybrid vehicle owner from Saanich is launching a “Prius and Tesla Club” for Victoria. Heinz Nussbaumer, who bought a Prius hybrid car last September, and is trying unite hybrid and electric vehicle drivers together to trade advice and information on what are still evolving technologies. Nussbaumer said he’s primarily focusing on Prius and Telsa drivers, since Prius was the first mainstream hybrid, but is open to anyone with any model hybrid or electric vehicle. “I’m interested in meeting other hybrid owners. I think we’d have a lot in common,” said Nussbaumer, who lives in Gordon Head. Having Tesla owners show up is more aspirational than realistic – Nussbaumer said Victoria might have one or two Tesla vehicles, and the closest place to buy one is Seattle. “This is my wife’s car,” he said, referring to the Prius. “My goal is to drive a Tesla.” Check out www. or meet at My Chosin Cafe on Sunday at 11 a.m., 4492 Happy Valley Rd, in Metchosin.

When he retired, the lumber business gave way to soil, mulch and aggregates at James Blackstock’s Buy the Yard Gravel Mart, but people still stop by looking for the former resident. James directs them up the hill to “We hear if often, “Chateau Louie,” customers thrilled where the former with the BTY website logger and lumberman lives with and the diversity of his partner, Shar quality products we Turnbull, and their have on hand.” classic cars. Proud to be a lifeJames Blackstock long Islander, Louie Neff was born in a house at the corner of Winter and Happy Valley roads. After logging for a time, Louie opened the sawmill at 4050 Happy Valley Rd., where Buy the Yard now sits. His grandfather had owned the land once upon a time, so things came full circle when Louie was able to purchase the property in 1980. At Louie’s home up the hill, you’ll find several restored antique cars, a small replica of an old gas station with the pumps restored and so much more. A 1912 Fordson tractor is one of three built specifically for the Canadian Pacific Railway for use in Victoria, Nanaimo and Vancouver to haul luggage off the ferries. Extra special to Louie is his cherry red 1910 Motel T “Torpedo,” and locals may remember waving at Louie and Shar in the local parades. Today they simply love touring in their antique

Belmont leaps to provincials Five and 11 are lucky numbers for Megan Koblun. Both marked significant strides for the track athlete in her final year at Belmont secondary, scoring a spot at provincials as well as a scholarship. She first dabbled in track and field in Grade 4 and began to take it seriously in Grade 7. Now in Grade 12, the 17-yearold long jumper and triple jumper broke her personal record for long jump, leaping exactly five metres during Island Championships. The jump earned her a spot at provincial championships. “It’s awesome, I have been wanting to break five metres for a while,” Koblun said. The week before, she broke her triple jump record with an exact 11-metre finish during Lower Island

Championships. “A triple jump is when you add a hop, step and a jump to it,” she explained. Her athletic performance earned her a scholarship to the University of Regina in the fall. “Megan has been serious about track and field for a long time and she puts in a lot of time and effort into her training,” said Belmont coach Tiffany Evans. Koblun is also on the Pacific Athletics track and field team. Belmont high jumper Riley Gestwa, Grade 11, also earned a spot on the provincial team. “He has an incredible natural ability, he is competing against Grade 12 students,” Evans said. The two-day provincial competition is in Langley starting May 31.

The Langford Midget C1 celebrates gold at the Richmond tournament last weekend.

Langford dominates in Richmond Charla Huber News staff

The Langford Midget C1 team are golden after winning the Richmond Girls Softball Tournament. It was the first time the team attended the tournament and the first year many of the players have been on a team

together. The girls earned a bye into semi-finals by winning three games and ending the other in a tie last Saturday. “It was really good competition and it was a really tight tournament all around,” said Dave Saunders, one of the coaches. “Our girls were hitting so hard they broke two bats.”

In the semi-finals the team defeated Fleetwood 8-5 to move on to finals against Richmond a team they tied the day before. They dominated on Sunday, winning 12-1. “This is great for the girls (who) this is their last year playing and they will age out of minor sports,” said Saunders.

High school triathlon debuts at Shawnigan Saanich teens lead way at Shawnigan Lake Subaru Tri Series Travis Paterson News staff

Holly Henry’s experience at the inaugural Western High School Canadian Triathlon Championship was a chilly one. The 14-year-old student of Mount Douglas secondary was first out of the water after the 500-metre swim in the super sprint division, the newly added high school event at the Subaru Shawnigan Lake Triathlon on Sunday. Henry looked in control as she remained in first after the 10-kilometre bike too, before she lost function in her fingers, and couldn’t transition fast enough from the bike to the four-km run. “I had a really good swim and had a 45-second lead on the next girl after the bike but when I got to the (final) transition I couldn’t take my helmet off and put my shoes on because my fingers were frozen,” Henry said. “I had to ask an official to help me take off my helmet.” Because of the slow transition she dropped from first to fourth. Among those who passed her were little sister Hannah, 13, who attends Arbutus middle school. Hannah finished second and Holly fourth. “I was disappointed with the

It was pretty hairy, so I can’t complain about the Bastion Grand Prix, though it does have crash corner. You always have to be careful.” Crashes have happened in many parts of the Grand Prix but the corner of Yates and Wharf is particularly dangerous. It’s also a great viewing spot for the race.
