Region lives up to claim as cycling capital of Canada Daniel Palmer News staff
s the annual Bike to Work Week wound down in Greater Victoria, organizers were encouraged by early reports suggesting this
year’s participant numbers will surpass 2012. More than 600 teams and 7,000 people participated in the event this year, adding fuel to the City of Victoria’s “cycling capital of Canada” label on its website. But is Victoria really the
cycling city it so willingly purports itself to be? The title is largely attributable to 2006 Statistics Canada numbers that show about 9,000 people – roughly five per cent of daily commuters in the Capital Region – reported biking to work.
Only 1.6 per cent of Vancouverites reported cycling to work. Mild climate, relatively flat topography and a compact urban area account for higher cycling in the region, but Victoria’s 25 kilometres of painted bike lanes continue to keep more cautious
commuters from taking the leap to bicycle, said Ray Straatsma, Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition board member. Please see: Numbers don’t tell the whole story, Page A6

GOLDSTREAM NEWS GAZETTE - Wednesday, June 5, 2013
A new day for Monday Rejuvenated magazine to hit newsstands June 27
Black Press’ Monday Magazine shifts from an alternative news weekly to a comprehensive monthly arts and entertainment guide June 27. Along with the revitalized magazine comes a revamped website with weekly blogs, videos and updates from our writers with plenty of room for readers to share their thoughts and ideas. Readers will also enjoy expanded arts and entertainment coverage twice weekly in Black Press’ community newspapers. “Monday has a solid reputation in the arts community,” said publisher Penny Sakamoto. “Now more than ever, Monday’s focus is celebrating the wealth of talent and culture our city offers.” After 39 years as Victoria’s premier weekly read, Black Press is excited to announce the new monthly iteration of its local flagship brand. Alongside the familiar voice of film reviewer Robert Moyes and the ever-popular horoscopes by Georgia Nicols, Monday will now feature CTV entertainment reporter Adam Sawatsky, fashion it-girl Emma Yardley, gastronaut Don Genova, arts maven Janis La Couvée, independent film advice from Victoria Film Fest director Kathy Kay, the contemporary musings of CBC Radio host Jo-Ann Roberts and some comedic relief from Mike Delamont. The vibrant, full-colour Monday also offers extensive coverage of outdoor recreation, sports, interior design, and an expanded events calendar — available in print and online at MondayMag.com and VicNews.com. Black Press’ Victoria community newspapers — Victoria News, Saanich News, Oak Bay News and the Goldstream News Gazette — will also host an expanded arts and entertainment section complete with an events calendar. “This is a brand new Monday with plenty of features and information on what’s happening in Greater Victoria that no one else is providing,” said Sakamoto. “The new Monday is for the person who is active, engaged, loves to go out and take part in our community and discover new things.” Black Press, the largest independentlyowned media company in Canada, decided on the move in response to a shifting marketplace, which has affected alt-weeklies across North America, including massive layoffs at the Village Voice and the Boston Phoenix, which recently closed. email@example.com mon

Women at risk clean out Anney’s Closet
ging out of the foster care system can be scary for anyone. Now young women on the West Shore can access a free store that provides home furnishings free-of-charge to atrisk girls. “When some of the girls age out of foster care they leave with a small $250 stipend and are given a bachelor apartment,” said Joan Jackson, a volunteer at Anney’s Closet. “We had Charla Huber one girl leave care with only two paper bags (of Reporting belongings).” The 18-year-old left the View Royal free store with a bed, bedding, tables, chair and towels. “She kept asking if there were strings attached,” said Jackson. Anney’s Closet caters to teen and young mothers as well as teens aging out of the foster care system. Many get a small one-time stipend to purchase items for their home. Income from any other charity can affect that stipend, so Anney’s Closet offers items free. Sharlene Law, an outreach team lead for the Umbrella Society, accompanied one of her clients to the free store to help furnish a new bachelor apartment. “I was not expecting it to be as good

as it is. It’s so organized,” said Law, adding she’s not aware of any other facility like it in Greater Victoria. “Normally the best we do is go to a thrift store and try to get a voucher to buy things.” Without Anney’s Closet, Law’s client, a former homeless youth, would have been living in an apartment with just a donated microwave. “She took home a bed, pots, pans, mugs, cups, a table and bedding. She
was able to go and sleep in her bed that night,” Law said. “We live in such a disposable society I’d like to see more people donate here.” Soroptomist International of Victoria West Shore operates the free store. The club has about 30 members and meets twice a month in Langford. “We’ve been doing this quietly for a year, but we are ready for our official launch,” said Jackson. It is not open to the public and clients are only connected through a social worker or social agency. However they’ll host an open house at Westshore U-Lock, 1621 Island Highway, June 8 from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Volunteers will be on hand to offer tours and answer questions. For more information or to organize a donation go to www.anneyscloset. com firstname.lastname@example.org
The real Anney
Anney Ardiel works at ActTogether Moving Services, a company that helps seniors downsize belongings when shifting into retirement. Shortly after becoming a member of the West Shore Soroptomist International group, Ardiel brainstormed with other members about what they could do with the donated goods to help the club and community. “I was donating truckloads of stuff to charities,” Ardiel said. At first, items were sold to raise money to help women and girls on the West Shore. “A lot of it is very nice stuff. The seniors would keep it, but they don’t have room … When I tell them it will help a young girl starting out in their lives, suddenly they donate more.” Westshore U-Lock donated two large storage units for Anney’s Closet to store items.

Strawberry tea turns 30
Christine van Reeuwyk With a giggle and a grin Bev Somers plops a berry onto a fresh whip-creamed portion of cake. The dollop of cream came at the capable hands of Donna Brandle and before that, Barb Gossman cut the cake and doled out the berries. They are the young-at-heart type of women who refer to themselves as “the girls” who started the Strawberry Tea three decades ago. “When I first moved to the West Shore I didn’t have very many friends,” Somers said. “So I joined this church.” The trio, along with Darleen Terlson, started as friends in the young mothers group that met on Thursday mornings. “We didn’t have a nursery and we didn’t have funds, so we started this fundraiser,” Gossman said. This year, the 28th at Colwood’s Church of the Advent (the first two were held in St. John the Baptist), is the 30th consecutive strawberry tea. They attribute longevity to friendship and fun. “You have to have champions. We persevered and believed in it,” Brandle said. It started with serving 50 slices of cake on a Thursday afternoon. Now they require 50 volunteers, working in shifts, to feed the masses. “We have had up to 500 but we usually serve about 300,” Brandle said of the now weekend event. The tea, with craft sale added a couple decades ago, is as much about camaraderie and inclusion

as fundraising. “Some people you see and you don’t get to know them. When you work with them you get to know them,” said Gossman. “All ages get involved,” Brandle said. “That’s a real draw I think.” With the nursery built long ago, the money now goes into general coffers for things like youth programs. “We also try to support outside of our church, like Compassionate Warehouse or the food bank,” Brandle added. “We’re not just thinking of ourselves.” The Strawberry Tea and Craft Fair is Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Church of the Advent, 510 Mount View Rd. in Colwood. email@example.com

Numbers don’t tell whole story Continued from Page A1
“The (cycling) numbers don’t tell the whole story,” he said. “If you take those numbers in isolation, Victoria is still the highest (for cycling commuters). But if you go into neighbourhoods, you start to see cycling usage between seven, eight and nine per cent.” Those higher percentages are shown in Victoria, Vancouver and other Canadian neighbourhoods as well, said Straatsma, who cycles 15 minutes to work each day in Saanich. CRD core municipalities should focus on the “interested, but concerned” cyclists who don’t want to take the risk of sharing the road with vehicle traffic, he said. Each year over the past five years, an average of 280 cyclists have been injured in collisions with vehicles on Vancouver Island, according to statistics kept by ICBC. “But if you provide people the right kind
of (cycling) infrastructure, they will use it,” Straatsma said. Part of the difficulty for city planners and councillors is a definitive and reliable count of daily bicycle commuters – apart from Statistics Canada numbers – doesn’t exist, a void the CRD is working to fill with its newly expanded cycling count program. The program will see volunteers spread throughout the city every three months for a morning and afternoon bike count, building on data collected annually since 2011. Bike to Work Week will continue to focus on getting vehicle commuters excited about life on two wheels, said Frank Hudson, executive director of Bike to Work Week Greater Victoria. “Last year, we had 880 new riders and 7,000 participants … and we know from the celebration stations we’ve done so far, we’re busier than we were last year,” he said. email@example.com

Langford first for Quality Foods
COMMUNITY EVENTS IN BRIEF
Bulldogs football hosts jamboree
The Belmont Bulldogs are hosting a full day jamboree of back-toback football games, June 7. Varsity and junior varsity teams from Belmont, Edward Milne, Pitt Meadows and Spectrum will compete. The games start at 9:30 a.m. and the last game is at 6 p.m. The Belmont Bulldogs Spring Jamboree is at the Westhills Stadium, 1089 Langford Parkway.
Second store to open in View Royal Quality Foods is coming to Langford in May 2014. The company’s three founding partners, John Briuolo, Ken Schley and Noel Hayward believe the time is right for a move to Victoria. “We have been working very hard for several years to create a presence south of the Malahat, so this is very exciting to be able to finally be involved with these communities as a good neighbour, reliable employer and exceptional grocer,” said Ken Schley, director of operations. Although transformation of an existing building on the Langford Parkway has yet to begin, Hayward says the recruiting process begins this week. “It’s not too early to get the right people lined up with the right duties,” he said in a press release. “We want everyone to be in top form once the store opens, and that requires a lot of preparation and planning.” Those interested in becoming part of the Quality Foods experience can visit the QualityFoods.com website for how to apply. “The store will have a mix of local talent and imports from other QF stores.” Briuolo estimates between 75 and 100 spots will be filled initially, made up primarily of front-line customer service people to senior management. “We will be looking at all positions and all departments right away. It’s wide open right now.” QF Langford is the first of two stores planned for the Greater Victoria area. “The other site, slated for View Royal’s Eagle Creek Village, was announced last fall and will open after the Langford location is operational,” Hayward explained. editor@goldstream gazette.com

Greater Victoria: boring but busy The tongue-in-cheek Boring Awards declared Victoria the fourth most boring city in Canada (see story at vicnews.com). Not only is Victoria dull, but its an underachiever in dullness. Ottawa was ranked the No. 1 most boring city, which is inhabited by even more bureaucrats than this region. With a little work (or not) Victoria could elevate itself to be the most boring place in the country. And that’s OK – boring is safe and steady. Not boring are near-riots every Saturday night as nightclubs let out, like in Vancouver; gangland shootings like in Surrey; and being ruled over by a chaotic administration like in Toronto (Rob Ford earned the Least Boring Canadian award). That kind of action is good for journalists, and bad for everyone else. Labelling Victoria as boring can be justified. It can be tough find a good restaurant open after 9 p.m., which is the same time as much of the downtown shuts down. The city once held a number of colourful 24-hour or latenight restaurants and coffee shops, and had a vigorous nightlife. Not so much in the past two decades. On the other hand, the region is so crammed with outdoor festivals, fairs, farmers markets, concerts and sporting events, it’s hard to find a weekend to relax. Just in the past few weekends we’ve had the Highland Games, the Luxton Pro Rodeo, the Oak Bay Tea Party, festivities at the University of Victoria with Congress 2013, the Goddess Run, and the Bastion Grand Prix cycle races. Residents still have a big Canada Day party to look forward too, Buccaneer Days, the Busker Festival, the Chalk Art Festival, Symphony Splash, the Saanich Fair, HarbourCats baseball, Highlanders soccer and Shamrocks lacrosse. Big celebrities and bands are coming here now – Sting and Jerry Seinfeld recently; Kiss and John Cleese in upcoming months. No longer do we peer across the water at Vancouver with envy. So is Victoria boring? If you’re looking to party until 6 a.m. or find a bistro at 2 a.m., yes, most likely. If you’re a family or a senior, the city can be boring and not boring in just the right doses. What do you think? Give us your comments by email: email@example.com or fax 250-478-6545.

mixed with sediments that increase its density. These are pertinent conditions if heavy oil were to leak into a river in springtime, when water runs fast and cold and brown with sediment. Then there are the obstacles presented by responding to a spill in remote wilderness and heavy snow. Given both provincial and aboriginal opposition in B.C., the Enbridge pipeline is unlikely to be imposed, and last week Conservative cabinet minister James Moore clearly ruled that out. The B.C. government has consistently maintained that the current project does not meet Clark’s often-repeated five conditions, including the vaguely defined “fair share” of revenues, and Moore said the federal government agrees with those conditions. The B.C. government has to face some other uncomfortable realities as well. If heavy oil pipelines are such a risk, how does B.C. manage the one that has stretched across remote and populated areas for 60 years? Does the government take a stand against new pipelines, and then watch as rail cars full of heavy oil cross those same rivers? No permit is required for that, and in fact there are more hazardous materials than oil moving by rail and road across the province today. –Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press firstname.lastname@example.org

Letters to the editor
Grad fears facing the real world My peers and I, Belmont’s graduating class of 2013, stand at the precipice of something great. The weeks dwindle by and slowly the end approaches: graduation. Soon, we will be thrust into the world of adults, with naught but our families’, friends’, and teachers’ advice to keep us afloat in the ever-changing seas of society. Many of my peers are nothing but excited for this glorious dawn; not I, however. I have generally been a confident young man the entirety of my life, always excited to take on whatever challenge faced me and persevere through it. Sprinting hard to get that ball or tearing apart an equation to find out how it works, I am always assured of my inevitable success. And that’s done me quite well so far, but, for the first time in my life, I am scared. Growing up, teachers, television, family, and friends have told me that I’m God’s gift to earth. I’m the best and the brightest and no one else radiates the same way I do. But now that the day to prove this is staring me in the eye, I’ve never been more terrified in my life. What if I don’t do well? What if I fail? What if I’m meant to be an actor? What if I’m not as intelligent as everyone makes me out to be? These
Tristan Cyr Youth perspective questions have battered my mind since the start of Grade 12, and I don’t have an answer for any of them. I’ve never had a fear. Some people are scared of spiders, bears, lightning, ghosts, etc. but not me. Certainly, I would jump at scary movies and hear bumps in the night when I was young, but nothing really phases me… except failure. I’m sure many near-graduates like me share the feeling. Whenever I see myself getting a mark on a test that’s less than an 80, my heart sinks, and if I get lower than a 70, I go to a very dark place. The nice thing about failure in high school is that you can almost always go back and rectify your mistake, but not in “the real world”. When you fail out there, it’s permanent, and I
don’t know if I can handle that. I don’t know whose decision it was to abolish failing grades, but it was a stupid decision. A person getting 50 per cent is becoming more and more the norm. Participation is an accolade to be strived for, while the person who got first place gets barely any more recognition than the ones who walked during the race. I’m so unprepared to deal with failure because I’ve never had to truly deal with it. So, this intelligent kid who’s succeeded his entire life is now faced with a real challenge and the possibility of failure. Stack that on top of an inability to deal with anything but a near perfect score, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. Growing up I looked down on intelligent people who “wasted” their intelligence by working RG-ad-BP-1202.indd nine-to-fives when they could be building the next generation of manufacturing robotics, curing cancer, or sending man to Mars, but what if I become one of those people. What if I end up wasting my intelligence and throw away all the talent I’ve been given? I hope that none of the other grads feel like this, because the death of my confidence is tearing me apart. Tristan Cyr and his peers will celebrate graduation from Belmont
LETTERS No Democracy without Fair Representation I would strongly encourage voters in B.C. to visit the Fair Vote Canada webpage. This is a non-partisan citizens’ movement for voting reform. The argument is that, under the present system of voting, the majority of voters rarely have fair representation in their governing legislature. Fair representation can only be achieved by awarding seats in the legislature on the percentage of votes received. It is an interesting read which presents the real facts about the B.C. election results. If seats in the legislature were awarded on the percentage of votes received, the result would have been six Green, four Conservative, 33 New Democrat and 41 Liberal. This would have been a true representation of the wishes of B.C. voters. With less than half the votes, the Liberal party has 50 seats and all the power, while the Green and Conservative parties, collectively with 13 per cent of the votes and only one seat, are virtually shut out. There is something seriously wrong with this winner-take-all
voting system. Sorry Christy, but you really don’t have a majority mandate from the people of B.C. What you do have is a phony majority government. It is time for change and it should begin with a voting system based on proportional representation where people can trust that their vote is valuable and can be counted on to make a difference. Until all voters have fair representation in the legislature, we cannot call ourselves a truly democratic society. Patricia Murphy Colwood
Sobering thought for Senate chamber Re: Elect Senate or abolish it (Our View, May 31) I think there is a simple solution to all the problems with the Canadian Senate: just convert the Senate chamber into a giant public bar and call it “The House of Drunken Second Thought.” This would not only stop the waste of taxpayers’ money but would also generate a lot of local revenue.

Garden City reputation at risk Tell me friend, when did the Capital Regional District abandon reason for madness? Thumbing its nose to scientific, economic, and social expertise and its own recommendations, the CRD will try and place a bio-solids plant firmly in an 1890 heritage middle-class neighbourhood. Liquid sewage processing is one thing but bio-solids processing is a high-risk proposition when shoe-horned into a high-density residential area along-side schools, parks, grocery stores, etc. What? There’s no buffer zone? Safety aside, morally you don’t put a pit bull into a playground full of children because it is safer for you. It’s just not compatible. Remember which way the wind blows in Victoria. Come on people it’s time to wake up and rein-in this CRD gone rogue. Victoria’s garden city reputation is at stake. Peter Wills Victoria West

Sun shines on Goddess run Christine van Reeuwyk News staff
Tiaras, tutus and sunglasses made up many a costume during the second annual Victoria Goddess Run under sunny skies in Langford Sunday. “Women like to bond together and run together. Often they find the mixed races intimidating and with a little bit too much competition,” said Louise HodgsonJones, media co-ordinator for the Goddess. “They dress up... and they just have a lot of fun.” More than 3,200 women ranging in age from 10 to 75 participated in either the Red Barn Market half marathon, Westhills 10k or BMO 5k. “Part of what we believe in is finding a way to celebrate physical activity and getting out there,” said Shelly Jensen, vice president, Vancouver Island for BMO Bank of Montreal. She’s among 14 BMO employees from across the province that participated in the run. “It doesn’t all have to be about business plans and kids and our hectic lives there’s something special that happens when women get together like this.”

Women race for the finish line at City Centre Park during the second annual Victoria Goddess Run in Langford on Sunday. The Victoria Goddess Run supports three charities. The Victoria Women’s Transition House Society provides emergency shelter services and counselling to more than 160 women plus their children each year. Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Center supports survivors of sexualized violence and increases public awareness of the issue. ProMotion Plus is a non-profit
society dedicated to increasing opportunities for girls and women in sport and recreation. “We are thrilled to contribute over $26,000 to three valuable female focused organizations. Thank you to Langford for hosting us and to all of our incredible sponsors,” said Andrea Carey, co-race director Visit victoriagoddess.com for run results. firstname.lastname@example.org
Fishing for cash

Hundred-dollar fish silently await anglers to hook them in B.C. waters. Now through fall 2013, the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. is marking about 300 catchable size, hatchery-raised rainbow trout with neonpink tags bearing a tollfree number. The trout will be released into 40 fishing lakes around the province. “We need the help of B.C. anglers to conduct this research, and it’s only fair to reward them for their efforts,” said Adrian Clarke, vice president, science. “The data gathered will help us continue to improve the province’s small lakes fisheries.” Anglers who catch one of these tagged fish are asked to remove the tag and call the toll-free number. The FFSBC will send the first 150 “tag reporters” a $100 reward. Subsequent tag reporters will receive gift certificates of various values for fishing supplies. Specific locations remain a closely guarded secret, but Vancouver Island lakes are among them. editor@goldstream gazette.com

Mad art show collects a crowd Online art grouping site creates connections Kyle Wells News staff
It’s nice to be in good company. That’s how the members of the MadArters group in Victoria feel, as they come together to host their first collective show and raise money for an art initiative. The show is a first for group members, who started getting in touch with each other about a year ago through a Victoria art group on meetup.com. There are 207 online members of the art group, 10 of whom have come together to form the MadArters and put on the show. Members of the MadArters get together regularly to attend shows, participate in art walks and generally discuss art. “Some are brand new to art shows and some of us are more experienced,” Aurafidelitie Arindam said. “The energy that’s come from it and motivation is really fascinating to me. Usually artists are so individual and isolated, but this has really brought us out.” Arindam is known for her paintings of botanical flowers, mainly in acrylics. She discovered her passion for flowers only after moving to Victoria and has now had showings at Butchart Gardens and Sooke Harbour House. She is moving into doing large seascapes and is still finding inspiration in her natural
see a range of paintings, photography, sculpture, jewelry and others. Arindam said it has been great to see it all come together. Putting on a show as a group also helps cut down the cost for each member, as opposed to hosting individual shows. “It’s a visionary way of bringing all the arts in Victoria together,” Arindam said. “We’re really proud of supporting that.” The MadArters have another show lined up, at the Zanzibar Café in Brentwood Bay this August. There will also be opportunities for new members to come aboard for future shows. An auction held at the show’s opening was also used a way to raise money for the development of the InterArts Centre for Creators. This initiative is an attempt to create a centre with resources such as a metalworks shop, office space, a 3-D printer Photo by Erhan Baydar and others available for memArtists Burcu Arat Sup, left, Susan Kerr, Natalia Mainprize, Melodie Hutmacher, Aura Arindam, ber artists.

White Hot Jet ready to launch
Imagine a hybrid of Joan Jett and Veruca Salt, with a dash of Adele thrown in for good measure – that’s Victoria’s White Hot Jet, which released its debut single, Never Comin’ Down, on Monday. In October 2011, music producer James Kasper decided to hold auditions for an all-girl rock band, with the plan of launching the band six months later under his community record label Blue Water Gun Records. Through a series of transitions, auditions, long distance connections and chance meetings, the band came together. But instead of the estimated six months, it took a staggering 20 months to manifest. Now that White Hot Jet has its final lineup set and has rehearsed incessantly, they are ready for their official debut live performance this Friday (June 7) at Victoria’s Rehab Nightclub, 502 Discovery St. Doors open at 9 p.m., with special guests This Day Burns opening the show at 10. Tickets are $12 in advance, call 778-265-8462 to reserve or for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org

Views to the Strait of Juan de Fuca are rarely visible along the stretch of road past Jordan River, but now the water is visible amid the noise of logging equipment and chainsaws. District Lot 569, one of the properties owned by Ender Ilkay, is being logged by a partnership between the Pacheedaht First Nation and Anderson Pacific Forest Products and managed by Queesto Community Forest. “Here’s the fact,” said Ender Ilkay. “When the zoning application was turned down, myself and my partners thought we would give it six months to see if any level of government would step forward. We gave it 18 months as we looked for a solution. This was not a knee jerk reaction. We’ve been dealing with this for five years. It’s just time.” Angus Hope, P.Eng., RPF, heading the logging of the property said they bought the timber on the stump on DL 569 from Ilkay. Some of the timber is destined for overseas markets, but most will remain on the domestic market for plywood, pulp and specialty logs. “Not a lot will be exported,” said Hope. “No cedar, no fir. The lower quality logs may be exported.” Logging is expected to take another month and so far there hasn’t been any word or action from those same environmental groups who protested Ilkay’s plans for a resort. Hope said Ilkay had three choices and that was to develop it, log it or sell it. “If you can’t change the zoning, you have to use it for what its zoned for,” said Hope.

Buffers will be created on the lower end of the lot, 50 metres off the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. Buffers will also be created around creeks in the block and to within 10 metres of the bottom of the lot. There is also logging taking place across the highway from Lot 569, also being done by Pacheedaht Andersen Timber Holdings Ltd. (PATH). The 50-50 partnership is keeping everybody working, said Hope. This means they don’t have to take the logs to the other side of the Island. PATH is the new owner of Tree Farm Licence (TFL) 61. This TFL is a subdivision of Block 1 from TFL 25. There is no private land attached to this TFL. PATH is a partnership between the Pacheedaht First Nation and Andersen Timber, a family-owned company in Vancouver. This partnership will be managed by their General Partner, Queesto Community Forest Ltd. “I am surprised but not shocked that they are logging. We had a choice between buying the land for park, preserving 85 per cent of the land and building cabins on the remainder, or clear-cutting all of the land. We only gave Mr. Ilkay the option of clear-cutting and that is what we will have to live with every 50 years,” said Juan de Fuca Electoral Area director Mike Hicks. In the end Hicks had voted against the rezoning application. “I said it all along,” stated Ilkay, “this was not my first choice by any stretch of the imagination.” Ilkay and his partners are looking at their costs to date and they are in the $6-million dollar range. email@example.com

B.C. rejects Enbridge pipeline plan Tom Fletcher Black Press
The B.C. government has recommended rejection of the Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline project its final written submission to the federal environmental panel. Environment Minister Terry Lake announced the decision Friday, two weeks after an election where pipeline politics played a key role. He said the B.C. government isn’t satisfied with the company’s plans for spill control on the twin pipeline proposed to run from northern Alberta to a tanker port at Kitimat. “Northern Gateway has said that they would provide effective spill response in all cases,” Lake said. “However, they have presented little evidence as to how they will respond.” Lake said any heavy oil proposal would
be subject to the B.C. government’s five conditions, which include spill prevention and response, aboriginal participation and a share of oil export revenues for B.C. Enbridge Northern Gateway vice-president Janet Holder said Friday the province’s position is not the end of the discussion. “The five conditions cannot be fully met until the end of the Joint Review Panel process,” Holder said. “We are working hard to meet the conditions and earn the confidence of the government and the people of B.C.” Ministry staff evaluated the 192 conditions proposed by the Joint Review Panel, the federal agency that will make a recommendation for permits to Ottawa next fall. The B.C. government and Northern Gateway officials will give their final oral arguments to the panel when hearings
resume in Terrace on June 17. Enbridge has argued that its submissions to the federal panel included 7,000 pages of technical reports and nine separate witness panels have answered every environmental question put to it. The panel has conducted
69 days of cross-examination of company officials by B.C. and other representatives. Lake said the B.C. government is not opposed to heavy oil pipeline projects in general, such as the pending application to twin the 60-year-old Trans Mountain pipe-
line from Alberta to port and refinery facilities in Burnaby and Washington state. firstname.lastname@example.org

Viewing a computer screen clearly and comfortably can be a challenge for users experiencing agerelated vision changes. People over 50 may require prescription eyeglasses designed specifically for computer use. Regular bifocal lenses can provide good distance and near vision but do not function well at those intermediate distances where the computer screen is often positioned. Options for computer users range from monovision or bifocal contact lenses to glasses focused for intermediate and near distance, wide-band trifocals, or even specially designed progressive lenses. Another source of irritation for older computer users can be dry eye. Aging tends to make the eye drier, and this condition can be aggravated by the tendency of computer users to stare at the screen and therefore blink less often. Artificial tears can bring relief. Mature computer users should discuss their requirements and vision-related difficulties with their optometrist, who can find them the best solution.

Wind slows Belmont golfers
indy weather and inexperience hindered the Belmont golf team from taking provincials by storm. “We were very happy to get there, we played well in our first competitions (of the season), but in the B.C.’s our inexperience caught up with us,” said coach Ken Lowe. Weather made the high school championships challenging across the board, said Lowe. The average student score was 86 on the 72 Charla Huber par course. Reporting Belmont finished in 18th place at Crown Isle Golf Course in Courtney last week. The Belmont golf team won the Lower Island Championships and placed second at Island Championships to earn the spot at provincials. “This group has surprised me all year,” said
coach Ken Lowe. “This group was unknown to me, I thought it was a rebuilding year.” Last year, the golf team had four Grade 12 students and Dylan Bell who was in Grade 11. Bell, now in Grade 12 is the only senior on the team. He won the high school police tournament at Olympic View Golf Club. “He’s a great role model. He consistently shoots par or close to it,” Lowe said. While Lowe said Bell is the No. 1 player on the team, at each event other players scores are added together building a team score. The younger players have impressed the coach. “It is a different mentality playing on a team and not for myself,” said Tyler Stanton, 17. Stanton said he’s strongest at hitting the ball off the tee and his teammate Tyson Girardet,16, is more skilled at short play involving putting a chipping. The two youngest players on the team are Grade 9 students Bryce Tickner and Ryan Backhouse. firstname.lastname@example.org

Gabe Campbell, left, and Bracia Tyler will play for their respective Victoria IceHawks hockey teams next year. They received the 4,999th and 5,000th grants given out by KidSport Victoria since it started here in 2000. “It’s completely coincidental that they are from the same sport and organization,” said KidSport Victoria chair Patti Hunter.

The benefits are immeasurable but the numbers aren’t. Last week KidSport Greater Victoria made Victoria Minor Hockey Association players Gabriel Campbell, 15, and Bracia Tyler, 11, the 4,999th and 5,000th kids to receive a grant towards the cost of registration in organized sports. “As a single mom of a very active teenage boy, the funding I received from KidSport this years, and in past years, has been vital in allowing Gabe to participate in hockey,” said Melanie Matherly, Campbell’s mom. Campbell is student at Spectrum Community School where he’s part of the Spectrum Hockey Academy. KidSport helps him play midget hockey for the Victoria IceHawks, as he hopes to play hockey at university while pursuing a degree in electrical engineering. Not bad for a kid who was once considered “at risk” for behavioural issues. “His dedication to hockey has positively impacted every aspect of his life,”
Travis Paterson/ News staff
Matherly said. Without KidSport, Tyler would also be on the sidelines. Bracia has a twin brother and the costs for sports, hockey especially, climb in a hurry for the family, just as it does for hundreds of families in Victoria. KidSport started in Victoria in 2002 and funded 86 children for a season of sport. In 2012, KidSport Victoria helped more than 800
kids play in 170 different sport clubs in the city, a cost of nearly $200,000. “We believe that sport and physical activity provides a lifelong opportunity for goal setting, commitment, fair play, teamwork and the acquisition of lifelong social and fundamental movement skills leading to healthier lifestyles now and later in life,” said KidSport Victoria chair Patti Hunter.
Historically, KidSport Victoria’s top funded sports have been soccer, with 1,491 children funded at a cost of $275,300; hockey, with 771 children funded at a cost of $171,430; football, 293 kids, $103,300; baseball, 504 kids at $56,600; and lacrosse, 343 kids, $52,700.
