Public forums on school plan underway By Jenn M c gaRRigLe THE NEwS BULLETiN

Public meetings to collect feedback on Nanaimo school district’s proposed 10-year facilities plan are underway. With two weeks left in the two-month public consultation process, school officials are urging people to attend one of the forums – the first of which happened after the News Bulletin’s deadline last night – that are designed to encourage dialogue and discussion about the draft plan,

including proposed school closures. The plan proposes major changes to facilities across the district, including closing a net total of 10 school facilities, rebuilding four facilities, pursuing the addition of enrichment programs to a number of schools, relocating the learning alternative programs, adjusting the French immersion program and relocating administrative functions. The most immediate actions include closing the South Wel-

lington and North Oyster elementary schools and the junior learning alternatives site at Five Acres at the end of June. Consultation began April 26 with a separate online public engagement process for each school in the district as well as one for the general public, in which people were asked to share their thoughts on the plan and similar thoughts were grouped together and then the feedback returned to participants to prioritize. u See ‘FORMAT’ /15

marathoners run to awaken life within

I

ISlaNd EVENT aims to bring awareness to issue of suicide. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

An aboriginal running team is making its way down Vancouver Island to raise awareness about suicide prevention by cherishing life. Kelly Paul is leading the Heliset Hále Marathon with teammates John Sampson and Bernice Smith. The runners and their team of supporters are of the Tsartlip First Nation, located on the Saanich Peninsula. Their goal is to run 535 kilometres from Port Hardy to Tsartlip territory, visiting First Nation communities, high schools and middle schools along the way to share Paul’s story in hopes of inspiring other young people. The team started its marathon May 18 and will finish in Tsartlip territory June 21 for National Aboriginal Day. The team visited Snuneymuxw

First Nation Tuesday. “We’re running for suicide prevention,” Paul said. “About four years ago I lost a brother. He was very young at the age of 17. It was very hard and tragic for the family to go through and we’re trying to create a positive spin from something that was hard for us to something that could be a healing journey for others that could create awareness as well.” Heliset Hále means ‘awaken life within.’ Paul’s intention is to help others value life by becoming aware of their potential, honour their gifts and to establish healthy communities by working together to gather strength. Paul, Sampson and Smith chose a running event over cycling or another sport because they are all half-marathoners with years of running experience between them that has provided each of them physical, mental and emotional health benefits. They run 21 km per day, four days in a row, followed by a day of rest. Paul hopes to make the run a local annual event for suicide

prevention awareness within First Nations communities. She said suicide in aboriginal communities has been on the rise, but has been a taboo subject for a number of reasons, including the stigma associated with suicide and fear that talking about

suicide could actually encourage others to take their own lives. “By talking about it we create healing,” Paul said. “We need to be able to offer some kind of way to open up and talk about this, so that’s what we’re try-

ing to do.” Paul said suicide frequency tends to rise and fall in waves and that conditions resulting from colonization, such as residential schools, loss of language, culture and knowledge from elders, have contributed to a worsening issue. Finding identity and a sense of purpose, Paul said, will bring healing. She also recognizes suicide is not just a First Nations problem. Societal complications and pressures impact everyone and knowledge gained from finding ways to deal with those can be shared by all cultures. “We are, as human people, suffering through this together,” Paul said. “We all have our own story within each of us and I think every person just needs to be heard, needs to be listened to… We are human beings, not human doings. We need to ‘be’. We need to experience life that little bit and need to be able to cheer up one another, so I believe it’s just that, going back to ‘mankind’ and listening to one another.” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Council unmoved on dam destruction despite impassioned speakers Not be Moved before council, a traditional Nanaimo song once sung by miners on the picket line. The pleas, or the song, didn’t move council, which voted 5-4 once again to issue a public tender and continue with the removal of the dams, scheduled for sometime in July when water flow is at its lowest. Earlier on Monday, the B.C. Supreme Court stayed a decision on an application for an injunction by the city in an attempt to pre-emptively address threatened civil disobedience by a local group. That hearing is rescheduled for early July. Coun. Fred Pattje said until now his personal policy has been to defend decisions council ultimately makes regardless of how he voted. He broke that policy Monday night. “The first order of business, for me as an individual councillor, is to try to regain some

of that trust, if not all of it. We need to do that before anything else because whatever we do is doomed to failure if we do not get that trust back,” he said. Pattje, who did not vote in favour of issuing the tender, added that he felt city staff and council have not adequately followed up on an offer from Nanaimo-North Cowichan NDP MLA Doug Routley to pursue the issue at the provincial level. “We’ve got an offer to help from a provincial MLA. I think I want to take advantage of that offer mostly because ... we need to hear from the Dam Safety Branch’s bosses, that being the Minister of Natural Resources and the Minister of the Environment,” he said. A recent engineering report estimates that the total cost to remove both dams and rebuild them will cost $11.2 million. Removing both dams and replacing only the lower dam would cost about $9.5 million. Coun. Diane Brennan, who

made the approved motion to remove the dams immediately and rebuild them over time, said citizen safety is paramount. “We understand that the area is critically important to the people of Harewood and, in fact, to the people of Nanaimo ... but even the Save the Colliery Dam Preservation Society understands the dams have to come down, they just want to stage it differently,” she said, adding her motion wasn’t “pulled out of thin air”, as some delegations accused, but was based on the engineer’s report. “If I am going to err, I’m going to err on the side of public safety. It would be unconscionable of us to ask the people of Harewood to accept a lower standard of safety than any other area in the province,” said Brennan. The duration of the meeting forced council to move the remainder of the agenda to a later date.

It was a dam filibuster. More than 40 citizens, concerned about what might become of Colliery Dam Park once the middle and lower dams are removed, pleaded their cases over almost four hours Monday night in an attempt to move council off its decision. Last month, city council voted 5-4 to remove the dams and rebuild them over time, though there is no definitive plan in place. That vote came after Coun. Fred Pattje’s motion to stave off demolition of both dams until spring 2014 and remove and rebuild both dams in stages until 2015 was voted down 5-4, an option most speakers indicated they were in favour of. Monday’s opportunity for citizens to address council came through a council vote to obtain authorization for a public tender call to find a company to

remove the dams. Some speeches by delegations brought tears, others laughter, though all carried the common theme of passion for what many consider a south end gem. Some quotes of those who went before council: Tim McGrath: “When it comes to reconstruction, there are no permits, no plan, no budget. Failing to plan is like planning to fail.” Fredrik Collin: “I know council will find justification for not rebuilding them.” Cathy Davis: “You’ve finally done it, you’ve managed to unite the north and south ends.” Brunie Brunie: “Why is council not bending over backward to preserve such a beautiful place?” Ron Stead: “I’ve been known to be nasty. If this goes any further I’m really going to get nasty.” At one point, led by banjoplaying delegation Jim Erkiletian, the entire gallery of about 200 people sang We Shall

It’s not unusual for emergency response agencies to regularly call upon one another for assistance, but the reasons for the call can take on a unique flavour from time to time. Nanaimo Mounties called Nanaimo Fire Rescue for help with a barbecue fire they came upon at a home on the 1900 block of Northfield Road shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday. The call wasn’t for an overdone late night snack, but to snuff out plastic insulation being burned off of copper wire on the grill of a propane barbecue. “I haven’t been able to get hold of the tenant who lives in the house, but it looks like he’s a bit of a recycler,” said Ennis Mond, Nanaimo

Fire Rescue fire prevention officer. “Last night he, or somebody, took a gas barbecue and filled the cooking area up with scraps of wire to burn the insulation off.” Mond said the operation was likely carried out in the dark to lessen the chance of black smoke being noticed as it billowed from the grill, which happened to be burning right next to several panels of corrugated plastic sheathing. Fortunately the fire was contained to the barbecue. “That was about the extent of it,” Mond said. “There was no damage other than the barbecue’s all gummed up with insulation now.” The wire being salvaged appeared to be scrap cut ends gathered at a construction site and not collected through illegal activity.

Talks stalled as school support workers cast strike vote

I

UNioN rEprESENtS custodial staff, secretaries and educational assistants in district.

By Jenn M c GarriGle The News BulleTiN

Support workers in Nanaimo school district are one step closer to job action. T h e d i s t r i c t ’s support workers recently voted 89 per cent in favour of strike action. Support worker contracts expired last June and union officials say contract talks have stalled. Rob Zver, president of CUPE Local 606, said bargaining at the provincial table is at a standstill and at the local table union officials were told improvements to

contracts can only be discussed under the provincial government’s co-operative gains mandate, which requires employers to pay for any wage increases within the existing budget. But in December, when Education Minister Don McRae sent districts letters asking that boards find savings in their budgets equal to 1.5 per cent of support staff compensation both this year and next year to pay for wage increases, school board chairman Jamie Brennan replied with a letter stating the district

would not comply with the request and that it would be impossible to do so without affecting services for students. Zver said the main issues are job security and wages – workers haven’t had a wage increase since 2009 and the union is concerned that even if workers give up something to get a wage increase, this could translate into more job losses in the future because the province isn’t funding the system adequately. “We’ve done our years of zeros,” he said. “You have to give up something, but it doesn’t mean funding is available in the future. We want some job security built in, too.”

Zver said the union would have to serve 72-hour strike notice through the B.C. Labour Relations Board before any job action takes place and it doesn’t look like any action is likely before the end of the school year. “ We s t i l l h a v e another date to go into negotiations this month … and we’ll see how it goes from there,” he said. School support workers across the province are taking strike votes. Bill Pegler, CUPE B.C.’s K-12 coordinator, said 34 locals have successfully c omp le t ed s tr ik e votes and he expects all 57 to have completed voting by the end of June. He said the prov-

Any job action would likely be coordinated provincewide, he added. J a m i e B re n n a n , school board chairman, said trustees would have to make cuts to programs and services to pay for any wage increases

out of the existing budget. “We don’t have any money and that’s what CUPE wants,” he said. “I haven’t

heard there’s any change in the position of government with regard to funding pay increases.” reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Guilty plea nets 13 years Oceanside RCMP say a Nanaimo man received a 13-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to manslaughter in relation to the July 2011 death of Errington resident Douglas Trebble. Police say as a result of the exhaustive investigation by Oceanside Mounties and Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit, charges were laid against 37-year-old Clayton Donald Brewer, of Nanaimo, on Nov. 27, 2011. On May 31, 2013, Brewer pled guilty to manslaughter in Nanaimo Supreme Court. “The support of our partners such as VIIMCU and forensic specialists is key to ensuring a successful outcome, and maintaining the safety of our community,” said Staff Sgt. Brian Hunter, in a news release.

Nanaimo News Bulletin Thursday, June 13, 2013

RCMP investigates alleged assault Nanaimo Mounties are investigating an alleged assault in which a man pepper sprayed a dog and its owner and beat them with a stick. The incident happened at Invermere beach, an off-leash dog park in north Nanaimo, on Monday at about 2:45 p.m. A woman was at the beach with two adult friends and their four dogs when a man walked by and started screaming he hated dogs. One of the four dogs, a oneyear-old pit bull, came within two metres of the man who hit the dog with a stick he was carrying before pepper spraying the dog. When the dog’s owner approached to retrieve her pet, she was also hit with the stick and pepper sprayed on the side of her face. The man then walked toward another large group of dogs and

their owners and started yelling about how he hated dogs. The woman who was assaulted left with her friends and dogs. She had her dog checked over by a veterinarian who determined the dog was fine. She is scheduled for x-rays of her shoulder where she was struck by the stick. The suspect is Caucasian, 50-60 years old, 5’ 7” to 5’ 9” tall with a thin build. He was wearing a Cowichan sweater, blue and red shorts, a brown baseball hat and work boots. Anyone with information about this incident or the suspect’s identity is asked to call Const. Ben Lanthier of the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.

Charge thrown out due to delay

I

timE takEN to get case to court too long, judge rules. By Jenn McGarriGle The News BulleTiN

A B.C. Supreme Court judge has stayed an extortion charge against a Nanaimo man because it was taking too long to get the matter to trial. Robert Frederick Widdifield, charged along with three other men with allegedly attempting to induce someone to pay back a claimed debt, applied for a judicial stay of proceedings on the grounds that his right to be tried within a reasonable time had been breached. Judge Robert Johnston agreed. His written reasons for judgment, released June 3, noted that with a trial scheduled to start in October and expected

to take eight weeks to complete, it will be more than 37 months from the end of October 2010, when the charges were first laid, to the anticipated end of the trial. The Crown alleges that between February and October 2010, the four accused joined together in attempts to compel the complainant – referred to by Johnston as “Mr. H” – to repay a debt he owed and that during the process, all or some of them inflated the alleged debt. The Crown also alleges that Widdifield and another of the accused are full-patch members of the Nanaimo Hells Angels and that the other two accused are “at minimum fellow travellers, who perhaps act as enforcers,” reads the decision. Johnston found that a delay was caused by the Crown when it asked the defence to return some disclosure materials. When former coun-

sel for one of Widdifield’s co-accused did not reply promptly to the request, the Crown should have applied for an order for its return, but instead the Crown did nothing for months except repeat its requests then seek to enlist the court to add some persuasive weight to the request, he wrote. Johnston also found that the Crown should have proceeded to trial against Widdifield alone when adjournment applications were made by co-accused last November. Johnston’s decision also notes that Widdifield has been unable to travel to the U.S. with his wife, the November adjournment cost him an additional $25,000 in legal fees and Widdifield has “sworn to the stress and anxiety he has felt, as has his wife, as a result of the outstanding charges, and the cost of defending them.” reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Mountie riding for community I

and turns. Communication between riders is a key component of safety when riding in a group. “You keep your head in it a little bit more when you’re in a group,” de Jong said. He set his personal fundraising goal at $50,000. All money raised supports Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for child cancer patients, and cancer research and programs supported through the Canadian Cancer Society. “The reason I did that is I know Gabriola Islanders are very supportive and generous and I figure $10 per resident on Gabriola is not unreasonable, so thats how I came up with the number, so $45,000 to $50,000 is my goal,”

Nanaimo school district teachers and support staff have new leaders. The Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association holds elections every year and at its recent annual general meeting, Mike Ball was elected president. Ball, who is currently first vice-president and a member-at-large on the B.C. Teachers’ Federation executive, will take over from Justin Green as president of the union local on July 1. “I feel good about doing the job,” he said. “A little trepidation, but ready for whatever challenges arise. Having been in the office this year as first V.P. has given me that feeling for it.” Ball expects a busy year ahead, between provincial bargaining and potential curriculum changes the Ministry of Education is considering and changes at the district level – the proposed 10-year facilities plan, the new learning services teams, a new approach to supporting students There’s a lot of and promotion of the self-regulated change in the learning model. system. The “There’s a lot of change in the sysfacilities plan tem,” he said. “The facilities plan is is going to be going to be foremost foremost in our in our minds.” Ball said he continminds. ues on as a memberat-large at the provincial table for another year, so he’ll be able to bring a provincial perspective to the local table and take local issues to the provincial table. Green, who decided not to throw his name in the hat this year, said he’s going to miss working at NDTA headquarters, but he wants to spend more time with his two young boys. “I’m stepping away to be a dad,” he said. As for the district’s support workers, CUPE Local 606, which represents mid-Island school district employees, recently elected a new president. Rob Zver, who served as president between 2007 and 2011, returns to that position for two years. He expects an uphill battle with collective bargaining – the contract for the local’s 900 workers expired almost a year ago and at the end of May, workers voted 89 per cent in favour of job action. Zver said the other hot-button issue is the district’s proposed 10-year facilities plan, which calls for school closures, and he will be paying close attention to the impact that will have on members’ jobs if all or part of that plan goes forward.

Payback is the biggest motivator for a Tour de Rock rider representing Gabriola Island. Const. Ed de Jong, 43, is a recent arrival to the central Island region. He moved to Gabriola with his family in January after serving in Terrace, B.C. His reason for getting in the saddle for the 2013 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is simply to offer something back to the community in which he works. “I first heard about the tours when I was up in Terrace – with the Tour de North – and I never had a chance to do it up there,” de Jong said. “For me, being in the position I’m in as an RCMP member, the ability to give back to the community is a big thing for me and just the fact that this event supports kids with cancer makes it such an easy decision to do.” With two children – a son, 11, and daughter, 14 – who are healthy, de Jong counts his blessings. His father-in-law is a cancer survivor. De Jong wasn’t an avid cyclist prior to joining the team. He bought a mountain bike in Terrace, but time restrictions never allowed him to get in as much riding as he wanted. “This is the first time I’ve been on a road bike since high school, so it has been a long time,” de Jong said. Training has gone well, even if it has meant sore muscles. The hardest part of it, though, the time commitment, which takes away from valuable family time. Living on Gabriola Island means catching a ferry to Nanaimo to meet up with other team members for training rides out of Parksville and Nanaimo. The time and transportation restrictions have translated into de Jong doing most of his training alone on Gabriola roads. A 90 kilometre ride means three laps around the island. When this interview was conducted in late May, he was in Parksville to do a speed night training ride with other team members for the first time since training started in early March. Cellphone apps allow him to keep track of distance,

RCMP Const. Ed de Jong, of Gabriola, has two healthy children and a family relatively unscathed by cancer. For him, filling a position on the 2013 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team is about giving back to the community where he works and an opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause.

speed, calories burned, elevations climbed and other factors to ensure he is matching the efforts of the group. When on tour, the team maintains an average pace of 25 km/h, but a faster pace is maintained in training. “It gets lonely sometimes, especially on the long rides,” he said. “I did 90k on Sunday and it’s a long time, like four hours, of riding alone.” When he does get together with the team – six riders from the central and north Island communities are training together and the balance of this year’s 22-member team train in Victoria – they remind him to make warning calls for switching positions in the group, debris, cars

Pay increases hard to justify

“Don’t do as we do, do as we say.” That’s the message the B.C. Liberals are sending to all residents of the province following the announcement that salaries for senior political staff in government ministries and Premier Christy Clark’s office are not just going up, but going up an obscene amount. B.C. Cabinet orders dated earlier this month provide for an 18-per cent wage increase for Dan Doyle, Clark’s chief of staff, to a maximum salary of $230,000. This from a premier who campaigned on fiscal responsibility to help families and gain some ground on an out-of-control deficit. This from a government that has continually told teachers, educational support staff, nurses and others in the health-care industry to tighten their belts because there is nothing in the kitty for wage increases. Most in the private sector have already tightened their belts to the max, not seeing any wage relief in years. Add to that the burden of increased taxes, a jump in utility rates and the rising cost of day-today living, and residents of B.C. are wondering how they’re going to get by. That’s when citizens need to have faith in government – all levels of government – to come to the rescue and pull the country, province or city out of trouble. But it’s getting harder to have faith in government officials. Whether it’s senators in Ottawa charging thousands of dollars in outlandish expenses from the public’s purse, or government officials in Victoria receiving unfathomable pay increases, it’s no wonder residents are so apathetic when it comes to voting in a leader. Who can you trust? Voters sent the B.C. Liberals back to Victoria with a majority government, and a mandate to set the province on the road to economic recovery. Helping themselves before helping the many in the province who are suffering is not what the people had in mind.

Cheers. You can imagine how well that worked out. As one observer put it, the system was not only open to abuse, it was actually designed for it. Here in B.C., the next step is obvious. If you go to the website of Alberta Premier Alison Redford, you can easily find the link to her detailed expense reports, itemized for travel, meals, hotel rooms and so forth. Alberta cabinet ministers provide the same disclosure. B.C. cabinet ministers’ travel expenses are now reported, but only as an occasional lump sum. As a result of Doyle’s revelations last summer, B.C.’s Legislative Assembly Management Committee now meets in public, with transcripts of proceedings available. But MLA expenses are still not itemized. Total expenditures are being reported on a quarterly basis, but with no detail to explain why some MLAs have much higher totals than others. It’s time to sweep out the cobwebs. u Tom Fletcher is a legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

City ignores growing deer population

four councillors and supporters who want to save Colliery Dam Park.

To the Editor,

When I first moved to Nanaimo some 20-plus years ago, you simply could not find a deer in the neighborhoods around Departure Bay. However, in the last six to eight years there’s been a monumental change, and now you can’t drive a street in any of these same neighborhoods without encountering at least one deer. What caused this change I do not know. Perhaps a shift in deer sociology, an increase in deer populations or some combination of the two. But what I do know is the damage they cause to suburban vegetable gardens and the danger they pose to vehicle traffic. I’ve also heard some staggering figures about how many deer are killed each year on our streets. I’ve lost a dog because it couldn’t resist the thrill of the chase, and followed a deer into the road. I know cougars have followed the deer into town and I’m certain their numbers will increase as well. Now, after so many years trying to cope with deer in our neighborhoods, I find rabbits are becoming a common sight as well. But there seems to be little or nothing anyone can do but fortify their yards, because there’s absolutely nothing being done by the city to address or even acknowledge these problems. I do think its time

to start looking at some practice or policy to curtail these problems, and dissuade further wildlife from moving into town. I know of a few instances where people have been feeding deer, and I think this is one area where a clear message needs to be sent – feeding wildlife is an absolute no-no.

Colliery’s lakes best swim option To the Editor,

Nanaimo by some people’s standards is the best place in the world. Yet, it has no truly natural place to go swimming. The ocean-access parks are all next to a sewage outfall, Westwood is not a lake but a goose poop-infested beaver pond and the best spots on the Nanaimo River are privately owned. The lakes at Colliery Dam Park are not natural, but are

the best Nanaimo has to offer its residents. Too bad it’s not in the north end, because if anyone believes the dams will be replaced after removal, wake up.

Five on council have no sympathy To the Editor,

Re: City seeks court order ahead of Colliery protest, June 6. I attended the city council meeting June 10 to support the people trying to save the Colliery dams and to see for myself if our mayor and councillors are as unsympathetic as they have been made out to be in the media. The presenters ranged from teenagers to seniors – ordinary people, professionals, etc., and I was impressed with what they said and the emotions shown when they addressed council. There were a couple of new ideas pre-

sented that would have helped ease the tension between council and the public, yet, they were shot down without even being considered. I was, however, not impressed with the reaction from certain council members and Mayor John Ruttan – especially when presenters voiced their comments directly to individual councillors. Mayor and councillors are elected to represent and listen to the concerns of the people of Nanaimo. Yet, five members of council seem to be doing the opposite – doing what they want, not what the public wants. I was also impressed with the closing remarks made by councillors Fred Pattje and Bill Bestwick … very emotional and, in my opinion, from the heart. It showed they are listening to the public. Thank you to the

Re: Nanaimo cuts management due to budget pressures, June 6. Nanaimo city councillors apparently concur, no doubt enthusiastically, with the city taking the initiative to reduce its administration costs. Several councillors say they support city manager Al Kenning’s plan to eliminate a top position at city hall as a costsaving measure. Too bad they didn’t think of that before they hired a totally unnecessary communications officer – also known as a PR flack – several months ago. But that was before we all became aware of the current tax increases. Now that we are aware, Mayor John Ruttan and the councillors have to go through their annual theatrical motions to be concerned about it. What about costcutting proposals during the rest of the year? And there are no details of Douglas Holmes’s severance package. I trust the PR flack will come up with something appropriate once this has all died down. No rush, it’s just taxpayers’ money being flushed down the drain, again.

Collective thinking on climate change based on emotion To the Editor,

Re: Tornado opportunists wrong on all accounts with climate changes, Guest Comment, May 29. With all collective thinking, whether it be a belief in global warming caused by humans, global warming caused by the sun and the Earth’s orbit, or no global warming, it is easy to pick out flaws. This is because collective thinking is strongly based on the raw emotional intelligence becoming of an ant colony rather than common sense of one thoughtful individual. The international climate change coalition, whom Tom Harris represents, took the opportunity to refute that global warming causes an increase in tornados, but the contrary because of certain studies. He gave no specifics. Harris also used the opportunity to encourage the continued use of oil over other alternate forms of

energy. Common sense says the Earth’s climate has always been strongly dominated by the ocean and geography. And when cooler summers prevail, the ocean and the wind does not distribute the equatorial heat as much, leaving a more striking contrast between cold fronts and warm fronts which is conducive for tornados. Common sense also says the present human way of life of raping the Earth of its resources for the sake of materialism and the subsequent tax revenue to keep the unsustainable government systems going is destroying the planet. World trade was to add a spice to life, but not dominate it. Oil will run scarce and hugely expensive in the future and unless you plan for the future, society will be short lived.

Celebration about Victoria To the Editor,

Re: No room for ‘Empire’ in today’s society, Letters, June 8. Considering all that’s wrong with today’s world, I can’t help but wonder what kind of life these people complaining about Empire Days lead. In Canada, May 24 is celebrated as Victoria Day in honour of Queen Victoria. Period.

Grad Class of 2013

Congratulations to Nanaimo Christian School’s Class of 2013! This small but amazing group of young men and women captured our hearts over the years we got to know them. Never afraid to show that they know how to let loose and just play, this group could also show amazing, Godly leadership and make a stand for their beliefs. In choosing the Bible passage from Titus, they are declaring that they understand that Christian teenagers are to…

7 … set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness 8 and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned, so that those who oppose you may be ashamed because they have nothing bad to say about us. Titus 2. Each member of this group of smiling, beautiful women and men are fully capable of making a huge, positive impact on our world. The Class of 2013 is soon to be unleashed, and the teachers who have taught them and love them look forward seeing God’s wonderful plans for each of them begin to unfold.

When the original experiments were carried out, no one could have anticipated that these enzymes would turn out to be critical tools for genetic engineering. It was just good science. If we’re serious about creating partnerships between science and business, we have to support the best scientists so they are competitive with any around the world. We also have to recognize that innovation and discoveries don’t always come from market-driven research. We should recognize truly internationally groundbreaking work to inspire young people who will grow up knowing they can be as good as scientists anywhere. This takes commitment from governments, more generous grants and long-term support.

If her research proposals had been assessed for relevance or potential applications, she wouldn’t have received funding for her early, trailblazing work. As a graduate student, I also studied the experiments of microbial geneticists Werner Arber and Daniel Nathans, and biochemist Hamilton Smith, who were investigating an esoteric phenomenon: bacteria that resisted infection by viruses called bacteriophages (meaning “eaters of bacteria”). The bacteria produced enzymes that cut DNA into pieces. They were called “restriction enzymes” and acted by recognizing specific sequences within the DNA and cutting at that point. Various bacterial species evolved

Popular kennel club show expands Unexpectedly high entry numbers have forced Nanaimo Kennel Club to expand its venue for its upcoming show. Close to 1,000 dogs from across B.C., Alberta and the U.S. Pacific Northwest are entered in the four-day show at Beban Park, which starts today and runs through Sunday (June 13-16). The response has forced show organizers to add another show ring and hire an extra judge. “This is absolutely amazing in these days when entries are falling at shows,” said Sandi Malcolm, club spokeswoman, in an e-mail to the News Bulletin.

Quickfacts

NANAIMO KENNEL CLUB show at Beban Park runs today to Sunday (June 13-16). Events include walk for canine cancer; Breeder’s Classic; costume contest; poodle contest; obedience. Visit www.nanaimokennelclub.ca.

Events begin Thursday with the Smiling Blue Skies Walk for Canine Cancer, starting at 4:45 p.m., around the Beban Park Golf Course and off-leash park. The walk supports canine cancer patients and honours pets that have succumbed to the disease.

Format allows for more dialogue from participants u From /1 Donna Reimer, school district spokeswoman, said more than 7,700 thoughts were posted about the proposed plan and the district has also received about 70 written submissions. “I think the information we’ve received to date … has made it very clear what people’s concerns are,” she said. The forums will include a short opening session followed by discussion groups based on concerns people

brought up in the online process. People can choose to participate in more than one of the discussion groups. Reimer said this format is intended to allow more dialogue to happen, rather than the one-way discussion of a presentation-style meeting, and people are welcome to suggest alternatives or bring up points they feel have not been addressed yet.

I would collect a garbage bag a week full of debris off the boulevard. Now I get none. Thank you to the students of John Barsby Secondary School, other schools in the area as well as the citizens for using the garbage can. Thanks as well to the Harewood 7 Eleven for donating the garbage bags and garbage container. Everyone can make it work in their neighborhood as well. All it takes is a little time and for someone to put their best foot forward. We all want a clean city, so let’s get together and make it so.

Native plants resistant to weather

Darcy Cyre harvests wild blueberries at the Nanaimo and Area Land Trust’s Native Plant Nursery in Cassidy for use in the organization’s first Wild Foods Festival. The nursery is now open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Dozens upon dozens of native plants can be found at the Nanaimo and Area Land Trust’s Native Plant Nursery in Cassidy. Stock for sale includes trees, shrubs, flowers, vines, ferns and grasses, some of which are edible and all of which can be found growing wild in the mid-Island area. “There are a lot of native plants that are very beautiful, such as flowering shrubs,” said Gail Adrienne, NALT executive director, adding that people aren’t always aware of them when choosing more exotic plants. For residents wishing to bring a little local colour and flavour – many of the plants that look good in landscaping are edible – into their gardens, the nursery has extended its hours and will be open Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The nursery operation got its start when NALT staff and volunteers were doing some stream restoration work

about a dozen years ago and needed some native plants to put around the bank, said Adrienne. After putting out a call to the community and receiving plenty of stock, the seed of an idea for a nursery was planted. “It started as a small gathering of native plants in the back garden of a house we were renting in the Old City Quarter,” she said. Then the provincial ministry of forests gave the group about 5,000 fir seedlings and with nowhere to put them, two Cassidy residents and NALT supporters, Peter and Anneke Van Kerkoerle, offered up part of their property on Frost Road in Cassidy. Six years ago, the group secured funding through a job creation program to build a greenhouse on site and a couple of years later, an edible plant demonstration garden was added. Adrienne said the group is working to expand the stock available and the number of larger orders the nursery receives – in recent years, the nursery has supplied native plants for the city, the regional district and local developers. She said there are several advantages to choosing native plants over exotic ones. “Native plants don’t need pesticides, they are adapted

to the pests around here, and they also don’t need as much watering,” said Adrienne. Popular plants include berries, salal, ferns and spring greens. While native plants are much easier to care for, the plants still need to be watered the first year until the roots get established, said Adrienne, adding that once established, people can go away for extended periods of time and not worry about the plants. Adrienne said people should research which plants like sun and which like shade, as well as how big the plant is expected to get to ensure the right size space has been allotted before putting the plant in the ground. She suggests stopping by to talk to nursery manager Susan Fisher or looking in resource books to find the information needed to ensure a plant is properly placed in your yard. And if people don’t have room to grow these plants in their yard and want to harvest edible plants in the forest, they should not pick more than 10 per cent of the berries or greens in an area, said Adrienne.

Gardening is a rewarding hobby with thousands of devotees. Backyard gardens provide beauty and aesthetic appeal to a

landscape, and they can be a source of homegrown food and a natural habitat for outdoor wildlife. A self-sustaining garden can be an effi-

cient addition to any home, but gardens require upkeep and a certain measure of dedication. A self-sufficient garden is a garden that sustains itself through proper planning and execution. Such gardens can almost take care of themselves so long

as the soil is healthy soil, the seeds are reused and organic material is produced. Self-sustaining gardens also represent a lifestyle where individuals are responsible for producing their own foods -- thus sustaining themselves without the need to shop for produce elsewhere. When planting your own self-sustaining garden, consider the following tips. u Start with soil. Healthy soil is essential to a thriving garden. The soil must have the right pH, correct texture and composition, and be full of nutrients. Very often the native soil in yards is not adequate to keep a garden thriving. In such instances, the soil needs to be improved. Adding compost -- which can be produced in the yard as well -- to the soil will enrich it with nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. u Maintain proper consistency. Soil

Creating a sustainable garden provides not only an aesthetically appealing landscape, but are also a source of home grown food and natural habitat for outdoor wildlife.

that is the right consistency, meaning the optimum balance of sand, clay and actual soil, is another necessity for a self-sustaining garden. The ideal ratio should be 40 percent sand, 40 percent silt and 20 percent clay. Having the right balance can secure root formation and promote proper drainage. u Test the pH. Certain plants need a specific pH in order to grow. A neutral range is typically ideal for growing vegetables. A pH tester can be purchased

from a gardening center. Amend the soil accordingly to get the soil back to its correct level. u Know the growing season. Vegetables should be planted during the season in which they will thrive. Peas, beets and cabbage, for example, are cold-temperature vegetables, while cucumbers, squash and melons thrive in warm climates. Plant accordingly so that the vegetables will have the best chances for success. u Purchase quality seeds. Use fresh

seeds, particularly ones that have been harvested from your own garden the year before, to have the best chances for germination. Or buy seeds from a reputable source, like a garden center or an online retailer who specializes in vegetable seeds. u Start seedlings indoors. You may want to work with seedlings indoors so that you can monitor growth and care for them more easily. Transplant them outside when they are ready for the elements.

Dancer steps up for charity mission BY RACHEL STERN

I

t’s hard to hear about the suffering of children in countries around the world and not do anything about it. Once Nanaimo’s Kiana Smith saw an opportunity to make a difference she began planning an event to help change the lives of children in poverty. The chance to help came from a conversation with her godfather Nick Cienski, who lives in Baltimore. Cienski is embarking on Mission 14. His goal is to climb 14 of the world’s highest mountains in one year to raise awareness about poverty in Nicaragua and the United States and raise money to help fight it. Children are facing under-education, human trafficking and abuse, malnutrition, unemployment and the loss of family. “He’s been to Nicaragua a number of times on missions and seen firsthand the abuse and situations these children withstand,” said Smith. “Knowing there are so many kids who are suffering in many parts of Nicaragua is hard to take in. “I’ve always been passionate about working with kids. I thought it was an amazing thing to get involved with.” Smith, a Grade 12 student at Dover Bay

Kiana Smith performs during Stepping Up in Aid for Mission 14 Friday (June 14) at Malaspina Theatre. The event also features performances by Jayden Holman, bottom left, The Footclan Dance Crew, bottom centre, and Makaila Tombe, bottom right.

Secondary School, is hosting a fundraising event called Stepping Up For Mission 14 Friday (June 14) at Vancouver Island University’s Malaspina Theatre, starting at 7 p.m. The evening features a tap dance routine Smith created specifically for the event called stepping up. It also includes performances by Jayden Holman, the Dover Bay Secondary School Jazz Band, the Footclan Dance Crew, Vanessa Croome and Makaila Tombe. According to the Mission 14 website only 27 people have climbed the 14 highest mountains in the world. It takes people an average of eight to 16 years to achieve the feat. Cienski will attempt to climb all 14 peaks in one year. “The challenges of this expedition will mirror the challenges of people in poverty throughout the world,” said Smith. The initial fundraising will support the expedition and once the mission begins efforts will start to raise money for charities. Tickets for Stepping Up in Aid of Mission 14 are $15 in advance and are available at Vibrant Dance Studios, Performing Fabrics and Dancewear, e-mailing kianasmith@shaw.ca or $20 at the door.

Get out the spandex, tease your hair and get ready to rock tonight at the Queen’s. Hair Nation is bringing the arena rock of the ’80s to the bar during its show. “We are essentially a tribute to ’80s hair bands,” said Jason Atkinson, lead vocalist for Hair Nation. The foursome performs songs by Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Mötley Crüe and others. The members have been involved in the Island music scene for decades but decided last year they wanted to form a band to perform some of the ’80s music they love. “It’s just the beginning of something great,” said Atkinson. “We are bringing the energy of the arena rock show to a small club.” Band members love to get out among audience members and entertain. Atkinson said people can expect high energy and a fun show. Hair Nation performs at the Queen’s tonight (June 13) starting at 9 p.m. Tickets are $5 in advance from band members, Money Maxx and the bar or $8 at the door. For more information about Hair Nation please vist the band’s Facebook page.

The Poor Young Things are touring Canada to celebrate its album, The Heart. The Head. The End. The high school friends left their hometown of Thunder Bay two years ago to pursue their musical career in Toronto. The move led to a record deal with marquee management and a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year from Sirius XM. The band includes singer/guitarist Matt Fratpietro, guitarists Michael Kondakow and Dave Grant, bassist Scott Burk and drummer Konrad Commisso.

The group is becoming known for its poprock music. “This record is a reflection of getting older and thinking about that. We are all going to be 27 this year,” said Matt Fratpietro, singer/ guitarist for the band, in a press release. Sign of the Times (the album’s first single) is based on what the world is like today. But the overarching theme is experiences we’ve had – on the road, relationship-y things. There are also songs on there about having a good time and meeting people. Revolver is one of those.” u See ‘SONG’ /30

Gallery Row unveils annual art exhibit

I

OutdOOr display gives established and emerging artists a place to show their work. from noon to 3 p.m. with the official gallery unveiling ceremony at 1 p.m. for the 2013-14 display. Beaudoin-Lobb said many people don’t know where the gallery is located. The best way to find it is to go to G.EM. Fabrications Ltd. on Fitzwilliam Street. The gallery is behind the business. Admission to Art Fest is free. The event features live entertainment, children’s activities such as face painting, a silent auction of items donated from local businesses and the artwork displayed for 2012-13. The art auction is a way for artists to get money for their creations said BeaudoinLobb. Beaudoin-Lobb said the event wouldn’t be possible without the support of the Old City Quarter and the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association. She said the annual celebration and display strengthens community ties and highlights the value of art and culture in the city. For more information about Gallery Row please go to www.galleryrow.ca.

By Rachel SteRn the news bulletin

Three years ago the first piece of art was unveiled at Gallery Row. The exhibit has helped emerging artists gain exposure and aims at celebrating the art and culture in the community. This year nearly 25 art pieces are being unveiled Saturday (June 15) at the third annual Art Fest. “The display is to give artists exposure,” said Sadie Beaudoin-Lobb, event coordinator. “It’s to celebrate the local arts community and emerging artists to give them exposure.” She said some of the artists have had people commission work because they saw their artwork on the Gallery Row exhibit. The festival is presented annually by G.E.M. Fabrications Ltd. Artists are invited to submit their work, which will be juried, to be displayed for one year on the outdoor gallery. Artwork in the exhibit includes glasswork, sculptures, paintings and other mediums. The event runs

the experiences of immigrants trying to establish themselves in Canada and of First Nations dealing with the loss of the traditional territory their ancestors have called home for generations. The book, which is a collection of essays from B.C. Studies, has some poignant points that resonate with anyone who has ever felt the pains of homesickness and delves into the question of home, hearth and community. A quote that particularly touched me was an excerpt from an article by Lynne Davis about environmentalists fighting to turn a

section of the Heiltsuk territory into a protected park, the Great Bear Rainforest. She quotes a leader as follows: “Our territory is our home. It’s our home, it’s where we lived our whole life, it’s what we’re about. It’s where we get our food. And I said [to the environmentalist] ‘Okay how about I come to your house, I come unannounced, I walk in without knocking, and I start moving your furniture around ... I slide your couch under your window or in front of your front door and whether you like it or not, that’s where it stays.” The great thing about

Song lyrics capture vibe of ‘togetherness’ ◆ From /28 Fratpietro writes most of the lyrics. The songs are created first and the lyrics come after. He said the band just jams until it gets the song right, which helps capture the vibe of togetherness. He said songs like Revolver and Black Lightning almost seemed to write themselves. Black Lightning features backing vocals by Koady Chaisson. “Black Lightning took a couple of days. And that was

Sweet taste of victory inspires track athletes Local track and field athletes took to the track in search of a sugar rush. The Nanaimo Track and Field Club played host again this year to a qualifying meet for the Hershey’s Track and Field Games. The annual meet in Hershey, Pa., brings together the best

runners from every Canadian province and territory and every U.S. state. The games will be held over the August long weekend. For the first time this year, the Nanaimo Track and Field Club opened up the free qualifying meet to anyone, not just

club members. Coach Tyler Heisterman said probably half the participants were from outside the club. Athletes won’t know if they get to go to Pennsylvania until all the qualifying times from around the province have been recorded.

V.I. Raider Girls recruiting

I

DANCE TEAM a part of junior football scene in Nanaimo.

The V.I. Raiders are nearly unbeatable at Caledonia Park, and one of the reasons is because the V.I. Raider Girls add to the home-field advantage atmosphere. The dance team is holding auditions for the coming season this Sunday (June 16) at the Beban Park Social Centre. The Raider Girls are looking for experienced hip hop or jazz dancers, or gymnasts who can keep a beat and keep up with fast-paced music. Alysha Grisé, the team’s new coach, said she’s looking for energetic, dedicated and positive girls/young women at least 15 years old who will be comfortable dancing in front of a crowd. Grisé will teach the group a short routine, which the girls will then be asked to perform in small groups.

The junior A Nanaimo Timbermen got blitzed in the first period and couldn’t manage to get back in the game. The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team lost 19-11 to the Victoria Shamrocks on Tuesday down the Malahat. The Shamrocks roared out of the gate, taking a 9-2 lead after the first period, and held on from there. Nanaimo scored six times in the third period to keep pace. Nick Sanderson scored a hat trick against his old team, Mitch Parker had two goals and four assists and Corey Shires had two goals and three assists. Brett Fleming and Terrin Davies also had two-goal games for the T-men. The junior Timbermen host the Coquitlam Adanacs back-to-back days at Frank Crane Arena, Saturday (June 15) at 5 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.

and we’re creating a good relationship with those kids,” said Vandekamp. “[And] we definitely found some kids at the camp that we didn’t know that much about that ended up being real good players.” The GM had a chance to meet with every single player at the camp last weekend and extended some invitations to main camp at the end of the summer.

Even this late in the off-season, there is still work to be done as far as building a roster. Vandekamp is looking at adding some out-of-province players. “We’re waiting for a few releases to go through so we can make a couple of commitments more public…” he said. “It’s coming together pretty well, actually.”

The general managing never really stops in junior hockey. The Nanaimo Clippers held a spring player-identification camp earlier this month at Cliff McNabb Arena, looking at prospects for this coming season and beyond. There were enough registrants to make up six teams, and players played a series of scrimmage games before two rosters were selected for an orange-versusblack finale. “The players played hard and we were really, really happy…” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach and general manager. “It was a balanced mix of guys that we look at a bit more for the longterm future and then some that would get some consideration for now.” Many of the participants were local teens who have been on the Clippers’ radar for some time, and there were a few who were new to the mix. “ We ’ r e g e t t i n g to know the local area kids a lot better, that’s for sure,

Acme T-men add talent

TWO GUYS join senior B boxla team.

BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

The Nanaimo Acme Timbermen are right near the top of the standings, but they still intend to get better. The city’s senior B lacrosse team returns to the floor this Saturday (June 15) and Sunday after nearly a two-week break. “It was nice to heal up some bodies and kind of go back to basics,” said Shawn Swanson, the team’s general manager. “The record, we’re happy with, but our play, we could get quite a bit better. There’s definitely a lot of room for improvement on

some of the sloppy play.” The GM was busy over the break signing two more players to the roster. Russell Thomas – who was one of the team’s best players during last summer’s playoff run – returns, and the Acme T-men also signed goaltender Nick Patterson. Patterson is a senior A veteran who also has National Lacrosse League experience. Swanson said all the guys are fine with a three-man goaltending unit. “We carried three goalies last year,” said the GM. “We prefer to do that – you get more goalies in practice, more goalies available for all games and when you’re going into a playoff run you want to make sure that if one … goes down

with an injury or is not playing up to standard, you’ve g o t t h a t t h i rd goalie.” The Timbermen look forward to the home games this weekend, as it’s an opportunity to build on their shiny record in front of their home fans and showcase all the talent they have this season. “We’re deep with quality ball players,” Swanson said. “Ever y guy can catch and pass and run and score.” GAME ON … The Acme Painting Timbermen (6-1) host the North Shore Indians (3-31-1) on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Sunday’s game against the Langley Warriors (2-6-0-1) is a 5 p.m. faceoff at the NIC. Tickets will be available at the door. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Inbrief Players prepare for ultimate game of ultimate sports

Bowen hosts lawn bowlers The Nanaimo Lawn Bowling Club featured some fine play last month at its Centennial Mixed Fours tournament. Parksville’s Stu MacNaughton and his team won the tourney. A team made up of Nanaimo and Qualicum players placed second. Cor Poland, Jeff Dixon, Pam Coward and Eleana Poland comprised that squad. In third place was the Nanaimo entry of Archi Prosperi-Porta, Hiroshi Kawaguchi, Kathleen Sherry and Emilly Lawson. “The visiting teams were generous in their appreciation of the volunteers who help to co-ordinate the tournament,” noted a club press release.

Weightlifter sets bar high Nanaimo power lifter Rhonda Heaslip is thinking about her individual goals, but she’s also thinking about others. Heaslip is promoting her Raise the Bar for Kids campaign as she targets a lift of 350 pounds at Woodgrove Centre in September. She will be promoting the campaign, which benefits the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, this Friday (June 14) with a meet and greet at the RBC branch at Brooks Landing from 3-4 p.m. She holds Canadian and Commonwealth powerlifting records and is continuing to train in hopes of breaking those records.

It will take place in 27 cities over 29 hours, and still, it’s expected to be a close game. The 2013 Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game is set to go Friday (June 14) and Saturday. The ultimate Frisbee match starts in Yellowknife, N.W.T., and relays its way back and forth across the country, ending in Nanaimo. In each city, players are split into a white team and a red team, representing two different charities, and they take the field for an hour. When time is up, they text the score to the next city and players take it from there. Remarkably, the game has always ended up being decided by three points or fewer – last year’s final score was 288-285 for the white team. “It’s been fairly close,” said Dirk Heydemann of the Nanaimo Ultimate

Association. “Which is pretty phenomenal considering it’s played in [27] different communities across the country.” The star t time in Nanaimo isn’t exactly fan-friendly, as players will take to the pitch at Merle Logan Field at 11 p.m. Saturday. But spectators are welcome and there will be food and music at the field starting from about 9:30 p.m. Ultimate Frisbee players there will be happy to sing the praises of their sport. “ We ’ r e a l w a y s keen to have more recruits. It’s a grow-

ing sport for us here in Nanaimo,” Heydemann said. “I myself am somewhat biased; I think it’s one of the best games around. The spirit of the game is a really important factor and the level of play is great, and the athleticism.” This year’s Art Hawkins game supports the Boys and Girls Club of Canada and Ottawa-based Christie Lake Kids.

Colliery Dam Update MIDDLE AND LOWER DAMS REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT PROCESS The following information is being provided by the City of Nanaimo on the topic of the Colliery Dams. Residents and visitors wishing to learn more are encouraged to visit the City’s website at www.nanaimo.ca/goto/dams or email us at collierydams@nanaimo.ca What is the current status of the Colliery Dams? At its May 13, 2013 meeting, City Council passed a motion that staff proceed with the immediate removal of the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams and take the necessary steps to build replacements for both dams while also preparing the lower dam for future hydro generation. The Lower and Middle Colliery Dams are owned by the City of Nanaimo and were constructed in 1911. Engineering studies have concluded that the dams do not meet current dam safety standards. Under the Water Act, the Province has the authority and responsibility to order dam owners, in this case the City of Nanaimo, to immediately address hazardous conditions. The Dam Safety Section of the Water Management Branch, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, has informed the City that the Province has assigned the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams its highest classification level – extreme risk – which requires that corrective action be taken. They stated that the dams, in their current condition, are a public safety hazard. The Dam Safety Section accepts Council’s decision to mitigate the hazard by draining the reservoirs and removing the dams in 2013. What is the process for removing the dams? Removal of the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams will take place in accordance with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans fish protection requirements. The first step involves a temporary diversion of the Chase River followed by draining both reservoirs, which is expected to take place in July. An environmental management plan, including erosion and sediment control, has been prepared. Concrete and rock material will be used to stabilize the river channel along the empty reservoirs. This step is required in order to prevent the siltation of the Chase River until the planned replacement of the dams, targeted for the summer of 2014, is completed. All in-stream work related to dam removal must be completed by late fall. Work outside of the river bed will continue until early winter. The process of removing the dams involves the use of heavy construction equipment and will include hauling material offsite. This work is planned for August. Describe the process for replacing the dams The process of designing and replacing the dams will start this summer with the selection of a qualified engineering consultant using an advertised request for proposals process. Additional topographic, geotechnical, geological and any other investigations required by other levels of government will also be conducted. And finally, the conceptual level cost estimates will be further developed following which a financing strategy for the project (based on either short-term or long-term borrowing) will be prepared. Prior to starting construction, the City will commence dialogue with Snuneymuxw First Nation, residents and stakeholders and obtain all necessary approvals to ensure the new dams meet the standards for an extreme classification. Users of Colliery Dam Park are advised that sections of walking pathways and trails will be closed with marked signs during the removal and replacement of the dams. Similarly, construction within the Park will also require the installation of fencing around work areas. What environmental precautions are being taken? In the past the Lower and Middle Colliery Dam reservoirs were annually stocked with rainbow trout. Fishing in both reservoirs is encouraged up until the time the removal of the dams begins. Prior to the Lower and Middle Colliery Dam reservoirs being drained, any remaining stocked trout will be relocated to the Upper Colliery Dam Reservoir which will remain stocked with fish and available for fishing. In addition to moving trout, all other aquatic or semi-aquatic amphibians and reptiles that require relocating to a safe water body will be transported to the Upper Reservoir. A pre-construction sweep for terrestrial amphibians and reptiles will take place prior to the arrival of heavy equipment. Any terrestrial amphibians and reptiles that require relocation will be transported to safe habitat next to Harewood Creek. As a further measure of environmental mitigation, Vancouver Island University Fisheries and Aquaculture Program will be engaged to collect 2,000 Coho salmon fry, which is about 10% of the estimated population in the Chase River. VIU will maintain the fry in their hatchery on the upper Chase River. Tell me about the land surrounding Colliery Dam Park In addition to the work taking place in Colliery Dam Park, new recreational opportunities for City owned land located on the west side of the Nanaimo Parkway along Nanaimo Lakes Road are being explored. One example includes the use of the soon to be decommissioned open air reservoir. This reservoir will no longer be used for the City’s water supply system when the new water treatment plant begins operations in the spring of 2015, making it an ideal City owned asset to expand recreation amenities. What are some of the key timelines for this project? q June - staff will release the tender for the removal of both dams q July – reservoir draining is planned to begin in accordance with summer low water flow rates and Department of Fisheries and Oceans fish protection requirements q August – dam removal is planned to start q Summer 2013 through Spring 2014 - commence the design and approval process to build replacement dams q Summer 2014 – planned construction targeted for new dams For more information on the Colliery Dams, please visit the City’s website at www.nanaimo.ca/goto/dams or email collierydams@nanaimo.ca

Service highlights lightning dangers During the summer in Canada, lightning strikes every three seconds. Besides causing power outages and forest fires, lightning strikes can also seriously injure or kill. Through recent advances in detection technology, Environment Canada’s meteorological service has improved its ability to track lightning and display high risk lightning areas. The new Canadian Lightning Danger Map can be found at http://weather.gc.ca/lightning/index_e.html.

These maps are updated at an interval of 10 minutes and are based on recent lightning observations. A new video on how to use the map can be found at www. ec.gc.ca/foudre-lightning. The video helps users understand how to use the new lightning danger map and stay safe. Most importantly, if the map indicates a person is in a danger area, or if they hear thunder, they should go to a safe location, either a building with plumbing and wiring or an all metal vehicle.

Stay there for 30 minutes following the last rumble of thunder. Research in North America shows that one third of lightning injuries and fatalities occur in the early stages of a storm, one third at the peak of a storm and one third once the peak of the storm has passed by. Environment Canada issues severe thunderstorm watches and warnings when severe weather such as large hail, strong winds, heavy downpours, or even tornadoes are possible.

PUBLIC NOTICE Annual Municipal Report The Community Charter requires that each year by June 30, a municipality must prepare an Annual Report to be considered at a public meeting. Therefore, notice is hereby given that the District of Lantzville 2012 Annual Report, including Audited Financial Statements will be presented to Council at its Regular Meeting scheduled for Monday, June 24th, 2013, at 7:00 pm at the District of Lantzville Office, 7192 Lantzville Road – second floor, Lantzville, BC. Copies of the draft 2012 Annual Report are available for inspection at the address noted above during regular business hours (8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday) commencing June 12 or by visiting the District’s website at www.lantzville.ca

A Big BikE TO WOrk WEEk BOUQUET to the lovely man who stopped his car and checked on me after I fell off my bike on Hammond Bay Road. Thank you for your concern and the offer to help. Another big appreciative bouquet to the kind policeman who strapped my bike in his trunk and drove me home. I wouldn’t have made it there without you. The doctor’s diagnosis: a cracked kneecap. AThlETiC BOUQUETS to the Heisterman family for their successes in track and field representing Nanaimo.

Beefs

&

bouquets mANY ThANkS to Telus for having a technician available and willing to help us seniors get our TV going again. It relieves our frustration with all the new gadgets nowadays. The technician’s name is Terry Doty. Telus should hang on to this man and give him a good reason to stay with the company, like a big raise. He is worth it. A hUgE vOTE Of ThANkS to the wonderful staff and volunteers at the Nanaimo and District SPCA shelter. Your dedication to the needy animals is appreciated. rOSES to the staff and volunteers at Nanaimo Cancer Clinic. God bless you. A BOUQUET. The crabs were delicious, flowers beautiful and yes, I remember. All appreciated. Nice gesture. A CONSCiENTiOUS BOUQUET for Jared, a helpful young man at Home Depot who is dedicated to his job. His customer service is exceptional and it is appreciated. A hUgE BOUQUET Of flOWErS to Wellington Secondary School students for hosting a wonderful outing for our seniors. An amazing spread of sandwiches, fresh fruit and delicious desserts were served by attentive, caring student council members. We look forward to seeing

you again next year. From the Mid Island Abilities and Independent Living Society. kUdOS to the pleasant, helpful young lady at the Nanaimo News Bulletin’s reception desk. You are a good representative for the paper. A BEEf. I sure wish the Island Corridor Foundation would give up on passenger rail service. I sure do not care for it. It is so peaceful without the whistles. A hUgE dOggiE dUmp to a local store. I am a disabled woman who wanted to buy something there. I told the owner I have a registered therapy dog before I went in. We just stood at the till, my dog in sit position at my side. She told me that if my dog peed on her stock, I would have to pay for it, that someone could slip on the puddle and fall, and that I had to be responsible for my own dog. A BEEf in response to all the letters stating that we must get assurance that the dams will be rebuilt. The dams were originally built for use in the production of coal. We no longer use them for that purpose, so what would the reason to rebuild them be? I can see the writing on the wall. The dams will be gone along with the lakes. Leave them alone.

Nanaimo News Bulletin B13

A Big BEEf to folks who take up too much editorial space with their thoughts on others in Nanaimo. I, too, enjoy the newspaper and other people’s thoughts and ideas, but some folks just like to rant and rave over what other people have to say. A NASTY BEEf to the root that tripped me on a local trail recently and caused me to fall hard on my arm. I am thinking of going back and painting you yellow as a warning to others. A BEEf about the health authority’s plan to replace registered nurses and licensed practical nurses with long-term care aides. Perhaps we should take our loved ones to a long-term care facility instead of emergency. A BEEf to all the drivers who don’t stop at the crosswalk at Brickyard and Hammond Bay roads. I am terrified because I have to cross it daily and shocked at how many of you whip by without even looking at us pedestrians. And a second beef to the city for not having a flashing light put there yet. Is it going to take someone getting hit? A BEEf to people who drop off their pet rabbits at a seniors’ residence. They multiplied by nine and there are more on the way. A BEEf to the lady who contacted me about my mattress for sale. You said it was filthy when it wasn’t, lowballed me and then when I wouldn’t fall for your ploys, you cut it up. Your friends seemed embarrassed by your actions. I ignored your rude remarks and bit my tongue, but honestly, you should be less rude to strangers. A BEEf to the protesters downtown who felt it necessary to disturb my graduation ceremony. Our years of hard work have nothing to do with the removal of dams at Colliery Dam Park. A BEEf to pyjama pants. They’re just an easy choice for lazy people in the morning and they’re probably a drain on our nation’s productivity.

This Week’s Winner BARB BURTWISTLE wins a bouquet from Turley’s Florist.

Bill passed away at Nanaimo Seniors Village at the age of 91. He was predeceased in December 2012 by Eva, his loving wife and soulmate of 64 years. He is lovingly remembered by his family, Dr. Bill Cook (Wendy Carty); Sharon Horncastle (Jim); Paul Cook (Debbie); and Dr. Timothy Cook (Jamie).
