Regional district directors concerned big-city garbage could end up here NEIL HORNER news@pqbnews.com

Is Vancouver Island going to play host to a garbage incineration facility for the Lower Mainland? Directors for the Regional District of Nanaimo believe that’s unlikely, but the possibility exists. The comments came during discussion at Tuesday night’s committee of the whole meeting in response to a report by solid waste manager Dennis Trudeau about potential site identification for a facility to incinerate Metro Vancouver waste and turn it into energy. Trudeau said Metro Vancouver is looking to shortlist locations for a facility to process 700,000 tons of waste that need to be managed. “They’re looking at an energy facility to manage that,” Trudeau said, noting he convened a conference call with other regional districts on the Island to discuss the issue.

CONTROVERSIAL QUALICUM BEACH DEVELOPMENT

Clarion approved

JOHN HARDING

editor@pqbnews.com

A 53-unit, five-storey condo development — some residents say it could change the look and character of downtown Qualicum Beach forever — received final approval Monday night. As it has at every turn in the process, a zoning bylaw that clears the way for The Clarion development in the vacant lot on First Avenue right beside town hall produced heated debate among town councillors Monday night. And just like every other reading, the bylaw was adopted by a 3-2 vote, with councillors Mary Brouilette, Bill Luchtmeijer and Dave Willie in favour, Mayor Teunis Westbroek and Coun. Scott Tanner opposed. This will be the second development (Sage at the top of Second Avenue was the first) to take advantage of a council ruling late last year that waives development cost charges entirely if certain density and green targets are met. That bylaw came into effect after the same kind of 3-2 vote. See SITE PREP, page A4

stArtInG Point Stilwell named chair of Liberal caucus JOHN HARDING

editor@pqbnews.com

The list of responsibilities keeps growing for rookie MLA Michelle Stilwell. The Parksville Qualicum representative in the B.C. Legislature was sworn-in Tuesday, a day she was also announced as the chair of the B.C. Liberal caucus. “I’m humbled to be elected by my colleagues to serve them as their Caucus Chair,” Stilwell said in a B.C. Liberal Party news release. “I look forward to fulfilling my duties as Caucus Chair while we deliver on our campaign commitments of balancing the budget, growing B.C.’s economy, controlling spending, and keeping taxes low.” The same news release described the role of the caucus chair is “to preside over Caucus meetings and act as a link or liaison between private members, cabinet and the premier.” Stilwell has also been appointed to three of the seven cabinet committees formed this week by Premier Christy Clark. These new responsibilities come after Stilwell learned last week she is the parliamentary secretary to the minister of health for healthy living, one of 14 MLAs named as parliamentary secretaries by the premier. On Monday, Stilwell was appointed to the Treasury Board, the Cabinet Committee on Secure Tomorrow and the Cabinet Working Group on Core Review. Stilwell is joining some committees chaired by the most powerful ministers in government. The Treasury Board is chaired by Finance Minister and Government House Leader Mike DeJong, while the Secure Tomorrow committee is chair by Health Minister Terry Lake. Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett chairs the Core Review committee.

New Rod and Gun owner Jeremi Burrows, left, with new general manager Dan Brodeur.

PARKSVILLE LANDMARK

Gun gets new owner Closing Monday, re-launch set for 5 p.m. Friday, June 21 JOHN HARDING editor@pqbnews.com

The new owner of the Rod and Gun says he has big plans for the iconic Parksville bar and grill. Jeremi Burrows said he wants the Gun’s new look — renovations start Monday with a re-launch set for 5 p.m. Friday, June 21 — to respect the history of the business, which first opened in 1898. Burrows, 38, once worked as a management consultant for the owners of six pubs on the Island, including the Rod and Gun. “This was the jewel of all the pubs,” said Burrows, who also owns the Bleue Coyote Bar and Grill in Brentwood Bay (yes, Bleue is spelled correctly). Burrows was asked why he bought the Rod and Gun. “I was familiar with the place, the reputation and the potential,” Burrows said Tuesday in an

interview at The Gun. “I like the building and the history behind it and I like Parksville.” Burrows lives in North Saanich with his wife Rebecca and their three children. “Rebecca will be involved in this place as well,” he said. “It’s a mom and pop operation again.” Burrows isn’t moving to Parksville but he has a new general manager to take care of day-today operations, Dan Brodeur. It seems they both will be busy in the next few weeks. Burrows said The Gun is going to get new floors, new furniture, new lighting, new bathrooms and even a new menu. “We’re not trying to get away from the whole pub-style menu, just fresher and lighter items, seafood for sure — more female friendly,” he said. “We’re not going to re-create the wheel. The changes are subtle. We are still going to be serving wings and cold beer and have live music. But I think you are going to see a lot more attention to detail, a lot more hands-on ownership and management.” See Looking, page A9

After the vote Monday clearing the way for The Clarion, Westbroek wanted to re-visit the DCC issue, specifically asking staff to produce a report on what the town is losing in DCC revenue from The Clarion. “It’s really not up to the mayor to keep bringing this up in a negative manner,” said Brouilette, seemingly asking the mayor to move on and support what are now the laws of the town and not waste staff time and taxpayer dollars on Westbroek’s “political dancing.” “Why keep looking for something to pick at constantly? The (DCC-reductions) motion was passed to encourage development,” Brouilette said. “If the (Clarion) project didn’t go forward, it (revenue to the town in the form of annual property taxes) would be a big, fat zero.” Westbroek said it was “entirely appropriate” to keep bringing up the DCC issue when a development comes to council for a bylaw reading or adoption and “if people are sensitive to the truth, then too bad.” Council also granted The

THURSDAY SPOTLIGHT: People, places and issues of the Parksville/Qualicum Beach region WATER WATER EVERYWHERE . . .

French Creek residents opt out Residents’ association president says people in French Creek don’t want to pay for a service they won’t be around to use in 20 years time AUREN RUVINSKY writer@pqbnews.com

French Creek is out of the Englishman River Water Service (ERWS) at the residents association’s urging. The ERWS is a joint venture of the Regional District of Nanaimo and City of Parksville to develop an aquifer storage and recovery system, new river water intake and treatment facility. Partly at the request of the French Creek Residents’ Association, the management board of the ERWS voted to remove French Creek at their June 6 regular meeting in Parksville. “We were told we don’t need the water until 2030-35 at the earliest,” said Michael Jessen, president of the residents association. “There’s a different kind of attitude around here, people only have a 20year horizon. People think why am I going to pay for it if I don’t need it,” he said of what was estimated to be an annual $200 to $300 per household cost. He said they held a secret ballot survey at a general meeting and though he admits it was a small sample, the vote was People think why am overwhelmingly in of leaving I going to pay for it if I support the ERWS. don’t need it “They’ve deferred those costs MICHAEL JESSEN about 20 years to future generations when they need the water,” said ERWS/AWS manager Mike Squire explaining there is a formulation included that means they will have to pay the interest on the deferred costs if or when they need the water. The RDN community will remain a partner in the related Arrowsmith Water Service which manages the Arrowsmith Dam. There is a lot of background information on the AWS/ERWS website at http://www.englishmanriverwaterservice.ca. • Meanwhile, the Englishman

River Water Service is almost ready to start testing the proposed aquifer storage and recovery system (ASR) which is an important step to building a new river water intake and treatment facility. The ERWS is a joint venture of the Regional District of Nanaimo and City of Parksville to develop an ASR which would store treated water in an underground aquifer for use in the dry season, which would allow a smaller treatment facility. At the June 6 management board meeting, hydrogeologist Dennis Lowen gave an update on the project, which would be the first in B.C. and one of the first in the country. Though new to the area, it is more common in other areas of the world, including as close as Oregon. The project is set to begin the physical test phase, with the test well expected to be drilled by the end of June. They will slowly inject water into the chosen aquifer on Kaye Road near the weigh scales from mid-July to October and then switch to pulling water out for the next couple months. The water and capacity of the aquifer will be extensively tested explained ERWS manager Mike Squire. The board heard that from the test data so far the aquifer looks ideal, contained between layers of clay and under property owned by the RDN and city. They eventually hope to reach a capacity around 70 litres per second — just below the 75 L/s provincial threshold where extensive environmental reviews kick — but plan to start slow and build up as they test and prove that the technology works. “The success of ASR is very important to our entire communities,” summed up ERWS chair Joe Stanhope. The hope is that they will know enough about whether ASR will work by February so they can start the preliminary design work on the new intake and treatment facility which will be based on the amount of water that

rDN’S Bear SmarT program

Low turnout surprises 500 black bears are killed every year in British Columbia NEIL HORNER news@pqbnews.com

It’s a little too late when the enormous head of an adult male black bear pokes around the corner of your house to wish you had taken part in the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Bear Smart education program. However, despite extensive advertising of a series of workshops with bear expert Crystal MacMillan of BearSmart Consulting, very few people actually showed up. In all, just 39 RDN residents turned up for the series of seven sessions held around the district over the past two months, with Qualicum Bay seeing only one attendee at the April 30 session and none at all at the Cranberry Hall session on April 18. Nanoose Bay and Qualicum Beach had seven and six participants respectively. Only the meeting in Cedar attracted more than 10 participants. In his report to the board, Zero Waste coordinator Jeff Ainge said other methods may be needed to get the message out.

NeWS fILe pHoTo

These bears got lucky, ending up in the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre for later release. But most bears that run into humans don’t have such a happy outcome.

“Staff believe that if the board wants to continue providing a level of bear awareness information, with a specific focus on managing attractants around the home, future funding allocations in the Solid Waste budget can be better utilized than hosting information sessions,” he said in his report. Commenting on the issue at Tuesday night’s committee of the whole meeting, Bowser/ Deep Bay director Bill Veenhof said he was unimpressed with the turnout. “I’m somewhat surprised that Area F (Coombs-Hilliers)

had more people show up than Area H,” he said. “I’m not convinced the outreach was worth the costs and if the recommendation is to consider flyers, I would support that.” Veenhof stressed that it isn’t only compost and recycling materials that attract bears. “Our experience in our area suggests they come in for the fruit trees,” he said. “When you have fruit trees, you have bears.” An average of 500 black bears are killed every year in British Columbia and most of these deaths are preventable.

Duke Point a possibility? continued from page a1

“We decided to wait to see what Metro Vancouver is doing,” he said. “If the facility was located on the Lower Mainland, that would be one thing, but if something was located on Vancouver Island, that would be more of a concern.” Trudeau said the result of the conference call was a recommendation to Vancouver Island regional districts to call for a detailed consultation process if there is a proposal that involves siting a Waste-To-Energy (WTE) facility on Vancouver Island. In his report, Trudeau noted that a 2009 study commissioned by the Capital Regional District, indicated that the CRD, the Cowichan Valley Regional District and the Nanaimo Regional District would require “at least three times more waste, or 600,000 tonnes per year would be needed to make a WTE facility viable on the Island. “The study noted that there were possible Island-based WTE facilities under consideration to address possible WTE options for Metro Vancouver. In particular, one such facility was proposed to be located in Gold River, which could be cost competitive with current landfill practices in the RDN due to its large capacity.” The Ministry of Environment, Trudeau continued, had indicated to Metro Vancouver that they are to consider the full range of possible options — both in and out of the region — in an equal and fair manner. The timeline proposed would see commissioning of a plant for Metro Vancouver’s waste

in 2018. Currently, residual solid waste is incinerated at a facility in Burnaby. Commenting on the report, Pleasant Valley director Maureen Young questioned whether the request went to all regional districts in the province or just those on Vancouver Island. To this, Trudeau had no knowledge beyond that the request had gone to all districts on the Island. Alec McPherson, the director for Cedar, expressed concern about the possibility of a private company allowing such a facility on their private land, but Trudeau stressed any such project would still be subject to permitting and zoning regulations. “They would need appropriate permits for air discharge and any residuals that needed to be discharged, water or solid waste,” he said. “On the zoning side they would need appropriate zoning. That didn’t mollify McPherson. “I get concerned when these things come up,” he said, noting he lives only a short istance away from one potential site at Duke Point. “I become very concerned when they are within 28 kilometres from where I live.” City of Parksville director Marc Lefebvre was more blunt. “When I look at the reaction to people on Vancouver Island to coal mines and smart metres, I wonder if we should be dealing with the issue of this type of operation on Vancouver Island in terms of acceptability,” Lefebvre said. “This might be a non-starter from the get go.”

NEIL HORNER news@pqbnews.com

Things got hot at the Regional District of Nanaimo committee of the whole meeting Tuesday night as two separate delegations called the board into question for their approach to the Baynes Sound Investments (BSI) development proposal for Deep Bay. The issues put on the table included questions of both the availability of water and the process used by the RDN itself. The acrimony started during the electoral area planning committee meeting, when Deep Bay resident Ian MacDonnell called the board unrepresentative and hinted he may take them to court over the BSI issue.

“I will speak about non-representative government the RDN has been providing over five years,” he said. “The only way to bring governments back in line with the people is through the courts. I believe the RDN is incompetent and biased and not deserving of being a local government.” MacDonnell said he would continue his vocal opposition to the proposal. “I will carry on committee meeting to committee meeting,” he vowed. He kept to that pledge, having registered as a delegation at the official committee of the whole meeting that followed, this time with area director Bill Veenhof as his target.

“He couldn’t wait to move ahead,” he said. Veenhof declined to respond to the delegation. Dianne Eddy also appeared to speak on the BSI proposal, but she took a very different tack, arguing that the study used to determine there was enough water for the development was flawed. “The BSI hydrological report estimated demands for this development to be three times the demand currently used,” she said. “At full development, this would be four times what is used today.” The problem, she said, was that precipitation records from Mud Bay were used to determine the water availability data. “It is well known that Mud Bay precipitation rates rank with Port Hardy rates, due

to an anomaly caused by very high mountains above Rosewall Creek,” she said. “It exceeds local stations by more than 500 millimetres a year.” Eddy questioned the report’s assumption that water levels in the aquifer were rising. “There is no information on how this conclusion was arrived at,” she said, arguing instead that her data on both precipitation rates and well levels indicate the reverse is true. “Correlation of precipitation and well depth highlights the dependency of this aquifer on rainfall,” she said. “Linear trend lines were added to precipitation rates and well levels and both trend lines indicate a drop in precipitation as well as a drop in the aquifer during the 22 years reported.”

Parksville OCP process sparks grumbling AUREN RUVINSKY

writer@pqbnews.com

Three years into Parksville’s official community plan (OCP) update process, there was a lot of grumbling at the latest public hearing. Eight residents spoke at the June 10 meeting in the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre forum with very little positive to say. “I really deplore the waste

of dollars that’s been spent on this OCP, $200,000 plus,” said Al Pastars. “The views of two committees working on the OCP have been tossed aside like old rags and the views stated in three surveys have also been ignored,” he said. “I would like a refund.” “Listening to the impact this may have on my life, I urge you to please slow

down,” said Donna Oscar, speaking specifically to proposed amendments allowing small lot developments. Some people brought up some specific issues. Charna Mcfie asked that the Jensen Avenue extension — which council removed from their capital budget in May 2010 — be removed from future land use maps. She also spoke against the

large number of areas slated for development or lacking any specific protection. Complaints ranged from the document being too complicated and the need for a Coles Notes version to understand it, to a lack of serious consideration of ecological issues and sustainability. The OCP is expected to return to the June 17 regular council meeting.

Town hires project manager ‘We all agreed we didn’t want to build a Taj Mahal’ JOHN HARDING

editor@pqbnews.com

With concerns about increasing costs ringing through the council chambers, the Town of Qualicum Beach has hired a local man, Walter Hoogland, to act as project manager for the design and construction of the new fire hall. Staff put three recommendations related to the fire hall in front of council Monday night. One asked for the hiring of Hoogland, with a maximum contract price of $25,000. It passed. Another directed staff to seek grant money through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and other sources. It passed. A third recommendation asking council to either allocate an additional $1 million to the project (bring it to a possible maximum of $5 million, still without any additional tax increase) or request an amended proposal from Johnston-Davidson Architects with a total maximum project budget of $4 million. After passing the motion to hire Hoogland, council decided to defer the big-money motions until they could get input from Hoogland. Before any-

thing was passed, some members of council expressed concern at what they perceived to be a rising budget for the new facility. “I have a problem with a fire hall that started off at $3 million and now up to $5 million,” said Coun. Scott Tanner, whose motion earlier in the night to direct staff to bring information forward about a possible referendum on the fire hall was defeated. “I’m disappointed in many ways,” said Tanner. “We were led to believe Nanoose built one for $3.2 million and we could drop one like that in Qualicum Beach and now we’re talking $5 million.” Both Coun. Mary Brouilette and Coun. Bill Luchtmeijer, who along with Mayor Teunis Westbroek attended the recent FCM convention in Vancouver, said many of the grants available for projects like this insist the building is built to post-disaster and green standards, so building the fire hall without these features could cost the town a lot of money in grants. Luchtmeijer said if “we cheap out, we probably lose our grant possibilities.” Brouilette said she also learned at the FCM the town “didn’t have to have the grant approval before you started — the funds can come in at any time in

the process.” Westbroek was in full support of Hoogland’s hiring. “We all agreed we didn’t want to build a Taj Mahal,” said the mayor. “When you are talking about this kind of money I don’t think you buy the first one off the rack.” • Council re-visited the 90-day eviction notice they issued last meeting to a caretaker who has been living rentfree on town-owned land at the Heritage Forest for at least five years. Westbroek called the eviction notice “callous” and “harsh” while Coun. Scott Tanner put a motion forward to rescind the notice and get staff to put together an agreement in writing for the caretaker. The motion was defeated, but not before some pointed comments. “This is an irregular situation,” said Brouilette. “The whole issue is not about that person — I don’t have anything against him. But before him it was someone else (living rent-free) and someone else before that. We have to start from scratch.” Tanner, who noted he is also a landlord, said he was concerned about possible legal and other costs to the town if the caretaker refuses to leave the property as instructed in the eviction notice.

The Gun is unique in many ways, not the least of which is its liquor licence, which allows it to sell liquor and play music later than any other establishment in Parksville Qualicum Beach. Many weekend nights, the bar is filled with 20-somethings enjoying deejays or rappers.

“We want to open it up to all demographics,” said Burrows. “We don’t want to rely on being the only place in town (with that certain type of liquor licence) anymore,” said Brodeur, a 34-year old who worked at The Gun from 2004-2012. “And we want quality entertainment, A-grade

Trashy balloon

A

layman’s look at the ecosystems of Vancouver Island reveal important estuaries, water-source mountain tops, prime agricultural land and vital shorelines. Not the ideal place, one would think, to locate a facility to burn garbage, let alone import the stuff from Metro Vancouver. That was a topic of discussion this week at the Regional District of Nanaimo’s board of directors meeting (see Neil Horner’s story, page A1 today). It’s not an imminent thing, but clearly the trial balloon has been floated and it caught the attention of some regional district officials up and down the Island. Metro Vancouver needs a place to dump its garbage. Burning that garbage to create energy sounds like a reasonable goal. Just not here, thank you very much. To be clear, there is no specific deal or site named for Vancouver’s trash. And this could end up being much ado about nothing, at least for Island residents. However, we applaud RDN solid waste manager Dennis Trudeau for bringing the issue to the attention of elected officials this week. A potential site for the incinerator could be Duke Point. That’s a little too close to home and scary, as an RDN director who lives less than 30 kilometres from Duke point said this week. We aren’t concerned about the fact these are early days in this discussion. We don’t care if there really is no plan to barge Vancouver’s garbage to the Island. We offer our early and strident opposition to this idea right now, even if it was just a trial balloon. The up sides? Some will say jobs, some will say the creation of a renewable energy system, some may even say that if the garbage was trucked rather than barged, and used our ferry system, it could boost the bottom line and save B.C. Ferries. All of that is rubbish, pun fully intended. It would be rude to identify specific communities and regions of the province here and now, but if anyone is asking, we could easily provide a long list of B.C. locations for Vancouver’s garbage, places which are less environmentally sensitive, less reliant on tourism dollars, less beautiful. Hey Vancouver – don’t even start looking in a westerly direction for your garbage solutions. — Editorial by John Harding

Letters review welcome

While reading an article in the Times Colonist this morning it became abundantly clear that a core review is very necessary, not for the general staff but for the bureaucrats and politicians. Although we all know that the rising costs of sound medical practices is a major concern and the resultant drain on allowable funds from the provincial coffers is unsustainable, there is no effort to address the gaping wounds of annual health costs.  No part of the government is doing any surgery. Bandages are applied to conceal the wounds, but no underlying corrective measures are taken.  B.C. Deputy Health minister Whitmarsh picks up his 300 K severance package as he exits the room. Lest we forget, he is the man that ensured the demise of Therapeutic International for approximately twice his “golden handshake.” Nowhere have I heard anything that the new Minister Brown will, and I implore the government to use the word “will,” ensure that Stephen Brown will contact all his counterparts in other provinces to ensure that a collective voice will be raised to establish a national medical plan to ensure equality across Canada and ensure the best pricing for medicines and medical equipment. Today we still need out of province insurance when we travel across this great and of ours. The provincial government cannot continue to simply bandage the continuing abrasion. The solution is not that complicated if there is a will to correct it. Get the best national service for the best price.

blessed peace Mother Theresa’s service was directed toward the needy and the impact was felt worldwide.  She became an example to those who share the need for living the scripture found in Matthew 5:9 “blessed are the peacemakers.” We find peacemakers everywhere, starting in our own backyard, our own family, maybe even the youngest of the tribe. Is their impact futile because they are the little ones?  Of course not, but so it is when considered from a larger scale.  We all can have an impact in our communities.  Rev. Andrew Twiddy of the Anglican Parish points out in his article called “Pastors Point” June 6 in The NEWS how we all can make a difference in the Israeli — Palestinian conflict.  “Mohammed (Muslim) and Rebecca (Jewish) co-directors of Kids4Peace (k4p. org, kids4peace.ca) organize camps and programs that build a platform for peace.”�� They courageously take on the prejudices of extremists.” They try hard to make a difference whatever the “other” looks like.  This is very different from what I heard from my son, who overheard a conversation of two young frustrated Arab men who are looking forward to the time when Israel would be annihilated through nuclear power.  The Reverend en-

a shocking move

scoTT FrAser, mlA

On behalf of myself and the friends that I dog-walk with in the Heritage Forest, I would like to say how shocked we are at the seemingly unfair, pending eviction of the caretaker. We are grateful for his presence as he seems to be home a lot. Just knowing he is there makes us feel safer. He keeps the place splendidly too, in our opinion. Our mayor is right, it could all be settled harmoniously. What on earth is the matter with the notorious gang of three? Do they want to erect another ugly high-rise in the forest?

now that’s service My girls and I went to the deli for Chinese food at Qualicum Foods tonight. My older daughter was carrying the tray with her and her younger sister’s food and dropped it. Immediately a woman from the kitchen came out and said she would order us a new meal and grabbed a broom to clean up the mess. Randy came over and let me know that a new meal was being put together for the girls. He walked over to the deli counter with me and promptly removed the price tag off the meal saying, ‘I’ll cover your meal. Accidents happen’. I was so touched by his gesture, as well as the response of his staff.

After an eight-year hiatus, the Comox Air Show is returning on August 17. The 2013 Comox Air Show celebrates 70 years of Canadian Air Force history in the Comox Valley and will feature a number of current and former Canadian military aircraft, in addition to several civilian performers. Officially known as the Comox Armed Forces Day and Air Show, the event will be 2013’s largest single attraction in the Comox Valley. The last air show held in Comox was 2005, when over 25,000 people attended. Given the pent-up

demand for an air show, organizers are expecting an even larger attendance this year. This year’s lineup will be headlined by the CF-18 Demonstration Team and the Canadian Armed Forces Snowbirds Air Demonstration Squadron. Several other RCAF aircraft are intending to participate. There will be a wide range of historic aircraft from Vintage Wings of Canada, Cascade Warbirds, the Heritage Flight Museum from Washington State, and vintage aircraft from across British Columbia.

oaters on the Salish Sea can take comfort in the knowledge that if they run into trouble, there are highly trained rescue technicians ready, willing and able to get them out of a jam. That training doesn’t happen by accident, as this year’s crop of SAR graduates would be more than happy to tell you as they take part in their graduation ceremony at 19 Wing Comox. The graduation ceremony kicks off today (Thursday) with the graduates parachuting onto the parade ground and immediately going on parade, which will be reviewed by Colonel Blaise Frawley, Commander of 17 Wing Winnipeg and the Air Force Training Centre. • Speaking of rescue, things looked pretty sketchy for a Vancouver family who found themselves trapped in a burning pleasure boat in the middle of the Strait of Georgia Saturday. The family of four had gone on a fishing trip near

• The Race Around the Rocks may be over, but that doesn’t mean the skippers and crew at the Schooner Cove Yacht Club are dockbound — far from it. Richard Hudson reports that several Schooner Cove boats compete in distance races and regattas around the Pacific Northwest. At the recent Thetis Island Regatta, which is a race staged by the Ladysmith Yacht Club around Thetis and Reid Islands, Tim Rann’s Amazing Grace took second place in her division. As well, Neal Berger’s

Island, Brian Robinson’s Flight took third place in her Division and Tim Rann’s Amazing Grace and Richard Hudson’s Freewind each took fifth place in their Divisions. • Cruise ship passengers to Nanimo will get a boost from the Regional District of Nanaimo. Directors have reached an agreement with the Nanaimo Port Authority to agreed to provide a shuttle bus between the ship and the downtown on Sept. 15 — at the Port Authority’s expense. • The Deep Bay Yacht Club had been scheduled to hold one of their signature races on Sunday, but fleet captain Don Manness reports there simply wasn’t enough wind. “The race on Sunday was a dead one,” he said. “We just didn’t have any wind.” The next race is in two weeks, by which time Manness hopes the breeze will have picked up a bit and the race will go ahead.

Boomer’s Ride is coming to town Fund allows forces members to give help where it’s needed most

The wheels on the bikes will be going round and round in memory of a fallen soldier this month as Boomer’s Legacy Ride once again takes to the highway. The annual fundraiser is held to raise funds for soldiers serving in foreign lands to give on-the-ground assistance to residents in the country where they’re operating — as well as back at home. The sixth-annual ride kicks off from Canadian Forces Base Comox on Friday, June 14 and will continue through two days to the legislative grounds in Victoria. More than 100 cyclists are expected to take part, including some from the Parksville Qualicum region. One of those is Maria Yerema, who is taking to her bike for the third time. “We will be coming through Parksville Qualicum on Friday and having lunch on the beach in Qualicum Beach,” she said. “It’s quite an impressive sight, with 100 riders in matching jerseys.” The ride commemorates Cpl. Andrew Eykelenboom, a Canadian Forces medical technician known to his comrades as Boomer, who perished on August 9, 2006 in Afghanistan, one

Boomer’s Legacy riders will be stopping in Qualicum Beach on Friday.

day before he was set to fly home to Comox. In commemoration of his off-duty activities in Afghanistan, the Ride for Boomer’s Legacy was created, said Yerema. “Boomer’s Legacy Fund is a fund for military personnel when they are in the theatre to help people in the country they are in,” she added. “For instance, one time they replaced a flock of sheep that had been killed by the Taliban. These are things that they often pay for out of their own pocket, such as shoes or a jacket for the kids. This gives access to funds for that.”

The cyclists hope to raise $40,000 with this year’s ride for Boomer’s Legacy Foundation, a Canadian charitable organization created in 2006. Since that time, more than $830,000 has been raised for the fund, which has been used to provide medical care for impoverished children, shoes for orphans, a midwife program, school supplies and a women and children’s centre in a number of countries as far afield as Afghanistan, Jamaica and Kosovo. The 240-kilometre fundraising ride is slated to be completed on June 15 at the B.C. legislature.

Parksville liquor application gets green light There were no responses from the neighbourhood AUREN RUVINSKY writer@pqbnews.com

Sunset Lanes could be a little more active in future, thanks to a move this week by members of Parksville city council. Council supported Sunset Lanes’ application to the B.C. Liquor Control and Licensing Branch (LCLB) to increase the facility’s indoor occupancy from 15 to 30 people.

The permanent change is meant to reconcile the license with the physical seating arrangement, explained director of community planning Blaine Russell. The staff report points out that since the proposal involves an indoor change and the surrounding properties are all commercial, the potential for generating noise complaints or other negative impacts is considered to be fairly minimal. Although the indoor portion of the facility will expand its occupancy, the patio will keep the 20 person occupancy it currently holds. The approval came after the city no-

tified neighbours and advertised the application and didn’t receive any responses. The staff report noted the city doesn’t have to comment on LCLB applications but opting out requires a council resolution and taking such a step would deny the city any influence which would likely result in the LCLB undertaking its own public consultation. “There’s nothing here too profound as far as I’m concerned,” said mayor Chris Burger, who referred to the move as a sort of housekeeping item on the part of the municipality.

The Town of Qualicum Beach announced Tuesday the competition for the “Best Blooming Business Award” as part of its 2013 Communities in Bloom program. “Just as many local residents take pride in their gardens and their home’s curb appeal, the idea of this award is to encourage decorated storefront displays, including window boxes, in our community,” said Town of Qualicum Beach Coun. Mary Brouilette, chair of the 2013 Select Committee for Communities in Bloom. “We hope to see originality and an innovative use of materials. The possibilities are endless!” Judging for the Best Blooming Business Award will take place on July 5 by members of the Communities in Bloom Committee. The competition is open to any business that holds a 2013 business license in the Town of Qualicum Beach. Entry forms are available online at www. qualicumbeach.com and at the Town Hall office at #201-660 Primrose Street, Qualicum Beach. Completed entry forms must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. on June 24. The 2013 Communities in Bloom theme is Strong Roots in our Heritage ... New Leaves in our Future. The national judges will be in Town from July 18 to 20. Recognition to the winning business, along with the winner of the town staff’s Street Style award that recognizes curb appeal, will be given at the Volunteer Appreciation Event on July 18, 2013 at the Civic Centre.

Gary and Violet Klyciak, owners of Bavaro Auto Body in Qualicum Beach, recently won their second AutocheX Premier Achiever Award.

Bavaro bags another award Only 400 of the 50,000 eligible shops on continent won awards AUREN RUVINSKY writer@pqbnews.com

Qualicum Beach’s Bavaro Auto Body and Auto Glass has won its second AutocheX Premier Achiever Award. The downtown shop won the award as one of 12 auto body shops in the province with the highest rating in a post-service survey done by Mitchell Repair Solutions. The award honours auto body shops that consistently achieve high customer satisfaction scores. “For the eleventh year in a row, we are delighted to sponsor the awards and recognize the tremendous accomplishments of Bavaro Auto Body and Auto Glass and all of the 2012 win-

ners,” Mitchell vice-president Jim O’Leary said in a news release. They awarded 400 shops out of 50,000 across the continent. “I’m not good at promoting ourselves like this, but I guess it does put us in an elite group,” said Violet Klyciak, who bought Bavaro with her husband Gary in 2001. “We don’t go out of our way to ring our own bell but I really want to thank the customers and the community for this,” she said. The survey scores are based on the shop’s ability to keep customers informed, providing on-time deliveries and repairs and the customer’s willingness to recommend the shop to others. Mitchell bills itself as a leading provider of technology, connectivity and information solutions to the property and casualty claims and collision repair industries.

When I was eight, my ultimate goal in life was to join the Beatles. My father had different priorities. Not only was he immune to the charms of the electric guitar, he downright detested the Fab Four. In fact, the surest way of getting an unwelcome trip to the barbershop was to mention their By Ray Smit names. One afternoon, in Grade 4, the teacher handed us a note to take home. It was an advertisement for piano lessons after school. I was aghast. Piano lessons? The piano was for sissies. Real men played the guitar. I deposited my copy in the nearest wastebasket. No need to burden mom and dad, I decided thoughtfully. Unfortunately, my brother took his note home. The next afternoon I was dragged off to my first piano lesson. I don’t know if it ever occurred to my dad, but it seemed odd to get lessons when we didn’t have a piano. Apparently we weren’t alone, because the teacher handed out cardboard keyboards to everyone in the class. Any child of the 1960s will remember the new math. New-style educators created a whole generation of kids who couldn’t add or subtract to save their lives. Well, this was another educational breakthrough: the new piano. Since there was only one piano and 20 students, we were all expected to practice on those cardboard mock-ups. In fact, none of us even touched a real piano while we learned on the cardboard keys. The idea was to practice silently and then transfer our new-found skills to the ivory 88 like butterflies

emerging from our cocoons. At first, I found it frustrating. But soon, whenever mom played her piano records, I would play along, my hands practically dancing on the cardboard. The folks were impressed. “We have a prodigy,” dad asserted. “He’ll be a young Liberace!” mom added. For some reason, dad was stridently against that idea. “No candelabras! He can be another Mozart.” Mom relented and I went back to practicing. A few weeks later dad bought an old piano. It was time to emerge from my cocoon. “Play some Chopin. Brilliant and loud so everyone can hear!” It was loud all right — but not brilliant. Like everyone else in my class, I didn’t have a clue. After several minutes of cacophonous clatter, mom kindly suggested I try Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. There was no twinkle and I was no star. Even Row, Row, Row Your Boat quickly sank. New piano, like new math, was an abysmal failure. I went back to pleading for a guitar. A few weeks later dad compromised and brought me a mandolin. A mandolin? Seriously? Try playing Jumpin’ Jack Flash on a mandolin with missing strings. Dad eventually gave in and bought an old acoustic six-string. By the time I learned a few chords it was abundantly clear I was no Beatle either. I morosely turned back to the piano. And, after many years, I finally learned to play it. Yes sir, nowadays I can really rock out on Itsy Bitsy Spider. So if anyone wants to get a band together, I’m ready. Just call me Amadeus!

The drive to serve you better. When visiting an auto body shop, you want to feel confident knowing you’ve brought your vehicle to a place you can trust. That’s why every year ICBC independently surveys approximately 60,000 customers who visit ICBC-accredited c.a.r. shop VALET facilities for repairs to find out which shops are delivering customers, like you, with top-quality service and repairs. This year, 15 top-performing shops in BC earned the AutocheX Award for achieving customer satisfaction scores in the top five percent of auto body shops in North America.

Do you know if your medication is safe?

ROUND THE WORLD CLOTHING & GIFTS

Something for the whole family... even Dad!

Make sure you and your doctor see through the marketing How safe are the drugs you are taking? How effective are they for their intended purpose? Where do you get that information? According to Alan Cassels, a pharmaceutical policy researcher from UVic, drug safety watchdogs may be struggling to keep afloat. Most of the information about the risks and benefits of a drug comes from studies funded by the manufacturer of the drug itself. Physicians are educated on how to prescribe medications largely by sales representatives. Pharmacists and doctors get another load of information from advertisements in journals, magazines and television. With such marketing interests it is hard to know if the By Dr. tara macart material presented is accurate and unbiased. In Canada one group called the Therapeutics Initiative (TI) based out of UBC has tried to set itself apart as an unbiased drug evaluator. Proudly stating that their research has no financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry, their work represents a potential threat to the glossy data that got a particular drug approved in the first place. Their careful dissection of data guides physicians and pharmacists on best practices for prescribing. Unfortunately, the TI may be in jeopardy due to a sudden drop of funding. This insult comes on the heels of a scandal surrounding a mass firing of employees and one co-op student from UVIC, Rod MacIsaac. Rod MacIsaac was a UVIC student working on a project that was supposed to investigate the safety and efficacy of several drugs Remember the Vioxx scandal? The used to help people quit smoking. One risk of serious cardiovascular events such drug was the new drug Champix. increased with the This drug had some use of the drug. impressive data a few years ago despite the Dr. Tara MacarT risk of unwanted side effects. Three days before the completion of his project, he was fired. Never before has a co-op student been fired. Of course, we will never know what he had hoped to share of his research now that he is deceased. My heartfelt condolences go to his family. As for the nine people who suddenly lost their jobs, grievances and lawsuits against the Ministry of Health pharmaceuticals division are in process and currently “the matter is under investigation.” What does this mean for you, the consumer? We need independent drug safety and efficacy evaluators. Even if a drug has inherent risks, it is important to have the patient understand the risk-benefit ratio before consenting to drug treatment. Remember the Vioxx scandal: The risk of serious cardiovascular events increased with the use of the drug. Nevertheless, even with this knowledge, Vioxx is pre-

MEDICINE 101

scribed today for those who choose to take that risk. In conclusion, be cautious about the hopeful benefits of a new drug. Older drugs have a track record, good or bad, but at least more known. Let us support independent evaluators because pharmaceutical interventions are inevitably a part of our culture. We want the security of knowing what we are getting into. — Dr. Tara Macart is a regular columnist with The NEWS.

fundraiser

Very special abilities Oceanside Accessibility Committee’s big event Don’t look upon people with a handicap as less of a person; think of them as people with very special abilities. That was the theme of the evening at the Oceanside Accessibility Committee’s silent auction and dinner fundraiser at the Quality Resort Bayside in Parksville June 1. Over 45 people from across the community, known as “community partners,” were welcomed to the dinner by Barb Barrett, Suzan Jennings and Jollean Chantrel, serenaded by the ‘master of the ivory keys’ Dave Klinger, entertained by MC Ronine Sharpe and prodded to spend money by ‘silent auction king’ Regan Myers. Guest speakers talked about the theme of the night including local accessibility advocate Albert Ruel, the Accessible Wilderness Society’s Dan Bauer and Jim Milina, the first quadriplegic to ascend Mount Kilimanjaro. Milina said he had a dream of winning an Olympic freestyle skiing gold for Canada and since his accident he has accomplished much more for his fellow country men and women than winning a gold medal. His contribution and accomplishments far outweigh a handful of gold medals. “It was an inspiring evening that helped fulfill a real need in Oceanside,” said committee president Greg Greenshields. The evening included dinner, the silent auction including two motorized mobility scooters and a room full of spectacular items

A Toronto band that plays ’70s and ‘80s classic reggae with a modern edge will be playing at the Errington Hall this Friday, June 14. House of David Gang played at Nanaimo’s Port Theatre last year and made some local connections, four members of the group are teaming up with two local musicians to bring their rootsy Jamaican sound to the hall. And people can expect a good time, said lead singer with the group Desmond Anderson, known as Selah. “Usually we are the fun band so every time we come around people can expect to have a lot of fun — thats what we bring, we bring fun,” he laughed. Selah moved to Canada from Jamaica at age 17 and has been living in Toronto for 30 years. In 1989 he formed the group House of David Gang, named after a house on Queen Street in Toronto that housed group members and where they hosted popular after-hour reggae parties. The group members dispersed for a while and then in 2005 two original members joined with some like-minded musicians and the group “has never looked back,” Selah said. CBC radio host Matt Galloway called the group “one of the most interesting reggae bands in the country.” Toronto members at the hall will include founding member Colin Ed-

wards, along with Jay Cleary and Snappy Homefry. Locally they will be joined by Paxton Bachman as well as another musician. The group is currently on a Vancouver Island tour promoting a new album and Selah said he hopes they can come back and do it again. “I love this place,” he said. “It’s nice the weather’s nice, it’s a little bit rainy

sometimes but its better than the cold.” The group will be playing at 8 p.m. at the Errington Hall for an all ages event. Tickets are $20 from the Errington Store, Cranky Dog Music in Parksville, and Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach. Under 12’s are $5 at the door and under 5’s are free.

Making a difference

Stepping up with music and dance

Benefit show at Malaspina Theatre to aid children suffering in Nicaragua An evening of dance, jazz, musical theatre and comedy taking place at VIU’s Malaspina Theatre June 14 will benefit abandoned and abused children in Nicaragua. It’s called Stepping Up in aid of Mission 14 and former resident and award-winning dancer Kiana Smith is producing the show. The evening will feature singer songwriter Jayden Holman, musical theatre vocalist Taylor Manns, Footclan Dance Crew (who were last year’s grand champions at the Surrey Dance Festival), as well as performances from Smith herself. Smith, who is currently in Grade 12 at Dover Bay Secondary in Nanaimo, won both the senior tap and musical theatre categories in the world online competition Dance Upon a Dream earlier this year. The evening will also see performances from a number of dance academies, Dover Bay Secondary’s Jazz Band and an improv comedy troupe. Mission 14 surrounds the endeavours of Smith’s Godfather Nick Cienski who will attempt to climb the 14 highest peaks in the world with only Sherpa support next year. National Geographic will be filming his climbs. Cienski hopes his mission will help rescue children in Nicaragua who are literally living in the garbage dumps, working on the streets and as slaves. He has been to the country a number of times and seen how these children live first-hand, and shared his stories and photographs with Smith. Smith is “stepping up to help,” and will be performing her first number on stairs to literally “step up.” The show takes place at 7 p.m., Friday, June 14 at VIU’s Malaspina Theatre. Tickets for the show are $15 and all proceeds will go towards the cause. Find them at Lady’s Mantle in Parksville, and in Nanaimo at Vibrant Dance Studios and Performing Fabrics.

William Roderick Banks We are deeply saddened by the loss of our loving husband, father, poppa, and great grandfather. Rod passed away after a lengthily battle with cancer at Eagle Park Lodge surrounded by his loving wife of 59 years and family. We will have many fond memories of Rod as he was such a dedicated community member. Born in Burnaby and moving first to Coombs and then to Parksville as an infant with his parent Bill & Lil Banks, Rod grew up in small town Parksville giving him a keen awareness of the community which he later used to pass on the history of Parksville to anyone he spoke too. Rod was a family man first and foremost. Predeceased by parents Bill & Lill Banks, Rod is survived by brother Buck, and sisters Donna-Rae and Adrienne. Rod was the proud husband to his wife of 59 years Nanette, son Doug (April), daughter Debbie (Bob), Poppa to the “Six Pack�, Shawna (Bob), Terri (Josh), Rhonda (Mike), Amber (Sean), Amanda, Lindsey. He was also equally proud of his 14 Great grandchildren Quinn, McKenna, Ben, Levi, Layla, Caden, Grady, Linden, Charlie, Brody, Evan, Sarah, Oliver, and Emily. Rod began working at an early age in the logging industry for Abernathy Timber Company as well as C&W Logging, M&E Logging and finished off his career with 33 years’ service to M&B Northwest Bay Division. Rod was a dedicated and skilled equipment operator and was well respected by his peers. Rod also served the Parksville Volunteer Fire Department with pride and distinction for 45 years, 22 years as Deputy Chief. During his career as a volunteer firefighter, he inspired many members and instilled a sense of pride in the department to those he served with. Rod dedicated countless hours to the community as a volunteer firefighter and left a lasting memory to all he touched. The family wishes to extend our gratitude to Dr. S. Noble, Tammy and the staff at Parksville Pharmasave, Parksville Home support and Home Nursing staff, Parksville Qualicum Hospice, and the staff of the Palliative Care unit at Eagle Park Lodge. Please join us for a Celebration of Life in memory of Rod Banks on Saturday June 15, 2013, at the Parksville Community and Conference Center, 132 Jensen Ave. (West) in Parksville at 4:30.

Shark Attack brings fun and games

First annual Tykes tournament hosts 16 teams from all over Vancouver Island JAMES CL ARKE sports@pqbnews.com

There was a Shark Attack in Parksville on the weekend, but not to worry, it wasn’t in the Ocean and the kids had a blast. Oceanside Minor Lacrosse hosted the first annual Shark Attack Tykes Lacrosse Tournament on the weekend and tournament coordinator Nicki Bull and company certainly brought their A-game. The tourney featured 16 teams from up and down the Island and 256 young players age 5-8 “plus their families which included many grandparents in attendance.” Played out at Oceanside Place and at the outdoor box down at Parksville Community Park, the tournament featured 32 games, starting at 8 a.m. and going until 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.  Each player received a keepsake Shark Attack tournament T-shirt at their first game, “which many of them wore all weekend long.” “We had great feedback from the teams that they all had a great time and look forward to attending next season,” said Bull, who was also quick to thank “all our Oceanside Minor Lacrosse families for all their volunteer time to make this weekend possible. I would also like to thank our great group of eight young referees that worked hard and put in many hours this weekend.” As for the hometown Sharks, the kids turned in a terrific effort, and were clearly in the spirit with many of them adding handlebar moustaches and mock scars to their game-face.

ViJHl Hockey

Generals’ prospect camp pushes hopefuls JAMES CL ARKE sports@pqbnews.com

Opening day is a ways off, but Oceanside’s Save-OnFoods Generals started the process of putting a team together for the 2013/2014 VIJHL season in earnest last Saturday with the club’s annual spring prospects camp. “I thought it went really, really well,” Gens’ returning head coach and GM Brent Demerais said after, pointing to the team effort of “the executive, the coaches, our scouts... it was really well organized, and we saw a lot of young talent.” About 50 skaters, including 10 goalies, turned out for this year’s installment, divided into a morning skills and drills and an up tempo inter-squad game in the afternoon. As expected, the players brought their work boots to the rink Saturday, as they hit the ice vying for a spot on the team.

From that camp Demerais said he expects at least 20 players, plus two others that couldn’t make it because of graduation, will be invited to the Generals’ main camp in August. “There were a few surprises out there,” he said when asked if any of the young hopefuls stood out. “There were some 15 and 16 years olds, a couple local guys, that were really impressive.” A productive camp on many fronts, the Generals have officially carded five new players — four forwards and a defence man — based on their performance at the prospects camp, with a couple more being considered. Sixteen-year-old local goalie Liam Giroux, younger brother of former Gens’ starter Kiefer Giroux,  was in the mix on Saturday, and looked sharp between the pipes. “He’s good,” said Demerais. The Generals will have around six goalies at their

main camp vying for a spot on the team. In the meantime, hockey never sleeps. “Theres a little bit of a break, but not really, we’re still looking for players, making deals, making trades,” said  Demerais, who will also be helping out at the Nanaimo Clippers upcoming main camp. WATCHING ON from behind the end glass and making notes Sunday was Scott Morgan, a scout for the Western Hockey League’s Kelowna Rockets. “Basically what I do is I come and look at the kids that have come through our camp, and other Island kids that I’ve seen in the past; just check’n on how their development’s coming along,” he said, and made the point “a lot of times there’s kids that have taken big leaps (since the year before), so it’s good to watch the process. It’s a long process, so it’s a matter of keeping an eye on them.” See junior B, page 44

VIJHL Hockey

Junior B used to be rougher continued from page a43

Morgan, from Port Alberni, is friends with Gens’ bench boss Brent Demerais and assistant coach Rob Gaudreault. “It’s not like it used to be with Jr. B hockey where (the VIJHL) used to be a rough and tumble league,”  he said when the subject shifted to kids looking to use the Island’s Jr. B league as stepping stone, confirming that “it’s really come along to the point where it’s about developing talent, so it is a good league to keep an eye on, along with Major Midget, which is another one of our focuses.” Both sessions Saturday and especially the afternoon game which had plenty of fast-paced end to end action with a bit of an edge to it. The opportunity to parlay hockey into a post secondary education aside, there are, Morgan said, “lots of kids that have moved up,” and pointed the likes of two B.C. boys who cut their teeth in Jr. B and are now lacing up in the NHL —  6’4” D-man and Sicamous native Shea Weber, 27, started his Jr. Hockey career in the Kootenay’s KIJHL, was called up to the Rockets, went on to play for Team Canada, and is now with the Nashville Predators. Island boy Jamie Benn, 23, a 6’2” centre, started out with the VIJHL’s Peninsula Panthers, played two seasons with the Vancouver Grizzlies of the BCHL and two with the Rockets, before signing with the Dallas Stars. “Kids are developing all the time, so it’s really never too late for them to take that next step. “Jr. B can definitely be a stepping stone,” he said, adding “the big thing here is that some kids will play here (Jr. B) their whole career, and that’s fine, that’s just the way it is, but not every one — other kids will have a chance to move up, it’s all about pushing your game as far as you can take it,” he said.

STUDENTS ON THE MOVE

How far would you run for ice cream? Kwalikum Secondary PE students complete 10 km run from QB to Parksville JAMES CL ARKE sports@pqbnews.com

In case you missed them, 33  Kwalikum Secondary School students ran the 10 km from KSS to the Dairy Queen on Monday morning.  According to KSS PhysEd teacher Jim Pearce, he, along with fellow teachers Barry Bevilacqua and Alli Bach, “are very proud of this group of students who set this 10 kilometre run as a goal in February of this year and reached it today. “They trained hard,” he said of those that tackled the run, which is part of their PE course. “Three days a week all semester, and their efforts and persistence paid off. We are also very proud of all of our runners who worked hard and achieved their personal run goals.”
