Construction ‘pains’ provide long-term gains

Downtown businesses will remain open during construction Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Monique Reid can envision the day when she can have patio tables on a wider sidewalk bordered by trees and shrubs. It will be far more “pedestrian friendly” says the owner/operator of Misty Fin’s Eatery and Lounge. However, she also wonders what the next six months will be like when contractors start digging up downtown in and around the new construction for Seymour Pacific Development’s office. “It’s going to suck in one sense: It’s our first summer open,” she says. “We opened last August and we’re still trying to get our name out there.” Misty Fin’s is located on Alder Street right across the road from the Best Wok which is well-known Continued on A3

The city will soon be tearing up Alder Street near the new Seymour Pacific office presently under construction, and Misty Fin’s owner Monique Reid is reminding patrons her restaurant will be open while the road and underground work takes place for the next six months. Other businesses in the construction zone will also remain open.

in Campbell River, but will also face the same construction-related and access problems as its neighbours. Reid is encouraged by the city’s promise to advertise the fact that businesses in the work area are remaining open through the construction period. The $4.7-million project has been contracted to Upland Excavating, a local company, and involves replacing underground water and sewer services, and burying much of the overhead wiring. Work is expected to begin in the next week or so and will continue until December. However, according to the city’s capital works manager, Jason Hartley, the goal is to get the roads finished and paved as soon as possible, and then further work can continue on the sidewalks and landscaping. The work is purposely taking place now in order to co-ordinate construction with the Seymour-Pacific office and to minimize longterm traffic disruptions downtown. “Some of those water

and sewer lines are very old. It needs to happen – and they may as well do all the ripping up at once,” says Reid. Replacing aging services is the necessity, but the aesthetic benefit will be the streetscaping. Alder street will be narrowed a bit in order to widen the sidewalks and to have plantings on both sides. The wider sidewalk will allow restaurants to have outdoor tables. And providing shade for those el fresco diners will be oak, beech

and maple trees, not the dreaded London plane trees that border nearby Shopper’s Row. The growing root balls of the three-decade-old London planes are creating havoc for the city, downtown property owners and their tenants, as they block up sewers and grow through brick walls. The same mistake won’t happen again. The city will plant the new trees in surrounds to contain the roots and to limit their height, and cool looking metal “kelp”

grates will protect the roots while allowing rain water to feed the trees. The overall goal is to turn this old and neglected area of downtown into a park-like setting with traffic “calming” measures, more green space and “sensibly-spaced” parking. There’s still room for motorists, but the overall effect will be better for pedestrians and cyclists. “I’m glad they’re narrowing (Alder) because people just fly down here – to me, it’s a good thing,” says Reid.

The Campbell River Mirror has a new publisher. Dave Hamilton will take the helm of the Campbell River Mirror on Monday. “The Campbell River Mirror is an extraordinary community paper,” he said. “The team here has built a paper that has become a model for papers across the province and has won numerous editorial and design awards with the British Columbia and Yukon Community Newspaper Association.” Hamilton will be taking over the role from current publisher, Zena Williams, who will be taking on a new position within Black Press, as publisher of the Comox Valley Record. Hamilton has a strong business background with six years years working with Black Press, three years as a sales and marketing consultant with the Comox Valley Record and three years as publisher for three publications in the Kootenays including The Fernie Free Press, Invermere Valley Echo and The Golden Star. Prior to working in the newspaper industry, Hamilton spent five years as a business resource manager in economic development, six years as a regional director for the BCSPCA with two years served on the Execu-

Council wants Campbellton to step up Kristen Douglas

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

A group dedicated to improving Campbellton was turned down by council last week despite conducting extensive planning recommended by city staff. Jim DeHart, a member of the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association – a group of Campbellton business owners and residents who are working to beautify the northern end of town – told council the group needs some help. “We began a really ambitious planning exercise with the advice of your senior staff,” DeHart said. “We’ve got hundreds, if not thousands, of volunteer hours into the preliminary data collection as recommended by your planning staff. But in order to work with that, we need to

Buskers beware It’s no longer the wild, wild west for Campbell River street entertainers. With council adopting a street performer bylaw last week, all buskers will have to abide by a series of rules, some of which will restrict when and how long they can play in one location. The bylaw prohibits street

summarize and put together a plan and get back to our community to make sure it’s on track. We can’t do that on our own.” DeHart said the group would like to hire a summer student and asked council at its Tuesday meeting for $7,500 to hire a student to summarize the data, check back with the community, and to staff the association’s Campbellton office. DeHart also requested council allocate an additional $2,000 for community meetings over the next year and to keep the association’s office open and available for continued planning efforts. DeHart suggested the money be taken from the $50,000 council allocated in the 2013 budget for a downtown and Campbellton design charrette (intensive planning

session) for improvements and revitalization. DeHart said he would prefer to have Campbellton and the downtown area treated separately. “Our understanding was there would be a stand-alone charrette for the Campbellton area as a result of the preliminary work we did because there are significantly different issues between downtown Campbell River and Campbellton,” DeHart said. “The planning process needs to be separate because they’re much different type areas.” Coun. Ron Kerr, who said he believed it was the intent of council to support the Campbellton group when it decided on a combined charrette, made a motion to give Campbellton the $7,500 it requested for a summer student as well as the $2,000 for more meet-

ings and to keep the association’s office open. But council turned that down. Coun. Claire Moglove said she couldn’t support taking the money from the charrette. “To take this type of money from the funding that we allocated for this charrette, in my view, would mean that we would do two things not as well as we could,” Moglove said. “I think we need to focus and do one thing really well as opposed to trying to do several things averagely.” Coun. Andy Adams would prefer to see the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association try to come up with some of its own funding before approaching council, as the Willow Point BIA (Business Improvement Association) and Heart of the City BIA do. “I think the Campbellton

group has done a tremendous job and I think the work they’re doing is phenomenal and certainly supported, but when I see the Willow Point BIA and the Heart of the City BIA, that provides funding and then comes and asks for either matching funds or support, they’re bringing the initiative forward and stepping up to the plate,” Adams said. “I’m a little concerned to continue putting money into an organization at 100 per cent cost for fear of the precedent that may be set. “The idea of a summer student is great, having the office open for a portion of the day is great but I think it has to be a shared initiative and I would encourage the Campbellton group to look to see how they can do that. “I think there’s got to be a happy medium.”

City hall has floated the idea of busker bylaw for several years – since a 2007 survey of downtown businesses showed majority support for some sort of policy.

Councillors nearly had to stifle a groan at last week’s Tuesday council meeting when Coun. Claire Moglove said she still wasn’t quite ready to pass the bylaw. “I’m going to refer this to one of our committees,” Moglove said, before quickly adding, “I’m just kidding.” Coun. Andy Adams said he was “glad to see it’s finally being done.”

2012. Included in the deficit is a $1.1 million tax shortfall carried over from 2011, plus a $1.3 million increase in costs related to contract commitments and inflationary increases, said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services. If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city. That one per cent increase would mean roughly $12 more per year in property taxes for the average homeowner. The city’s operating budget is approximately $37 million which Continued on A3

Campbell River city council is supporting Member of Parliament John Duncan, who wants adjustments made to controversial boundary changes proposed for the federal Vancouver Island North riding. The boundary changes are necessary due to the addition of six new seats in B.C. – including one on the Island – due to population growth. The B.C. Electoral Boundaries Commission wants to divide the city of Courtenay in half and add Powell River to the North Island riding. The proposal would see the section of Courtenay east of the Puntledge River, as well as Comox, remain in the Vancouver Island North riding, but the other half of Courtenay as well as Cumberland, would be transferred to the NanaimoAlberni riding. Duncan opposed that change in a committee report that

was recently tabled by the House of Commons committee studying the proposed boundary changes. “The latest recommendation by the commission, which split the Comox Valley in half and removed Powell River from the Sunshine Coast and added it to Vancouver Island North, met with considerable opposition in the impacted communities,” Duncan said in a news release. “I understand that the commission’s task was a difficult one, but in the end they were solving a Lower Mainland problem at the expense of Vancouver Island. I felt that the best way to address the problem was to collaborate with the affected MPs (Members of Parliament) on Vancouver Island and the Mainland.” In Duncan’s proposal, Courtenay and Comox would stay in the Vancouver Island North and Powell River would remain in the West

Man with three domestic violence convictions jailed again Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

A man with a long criminal record and history of domestic violence is facing new charges of assaulting his spouse. Ronald Walkus, 29, was denied bail on Monday in Campbell River provincial court. According to Crown prosecutor Tim Morgan, Walkus has amassed 30 convictions since 2002, many for breaching court orders or not attending court. He also has four assault convictions. The first occurred in 2007 in Campbell River while the other three are for assaulting a female spouse. These include convictions in 2009 in Port Coquitlam, in 2011 in Surrey and again that year in Courtenay. “He has spent a considerable amount of time in custody for some of these offences,” said Morgan. Walkus is now charged with assault and uttering threats of his current spouse, and Morgan said the Crown intends to proceed by indictment in B.C. Supreme Court. He also noted that Campbell River RCMP have been to the couple’s 9th Avenue apartment several times, but Walkus’ partner was never interested in pursuing charges. That changed when another woman allegedly witnessed Walkus threaten to kill his spouse and she called police. The victim then told officers about another incident on Feb. 22. She alleges that she was in bed sleeping when Walkus came home, kicked her in the face, dragged her out of the bed and then beat her. She told police she ran to the next door apartment, but Walkus dragged her back into their residence and then wouldn’t let her seek medical treatment. Walkus has pleaded not guilty to the charges and a preliminary inquiry is scheduled for July 3.

B.C. losing people to other provinces Tom FleTcheR blaCk pRess

More people continue to move from B.C. to other provinces than migrate west, according to the latest Statistics Canada estimates. Quarterly Statistics Canada figures show a net loss of 1,611 people from B.C. to other provinces from January to March this year. That is the seventh straight quarter of net out-migration from B.C., with the last net increase of 73 people recorded in the April-June quarter of 2011. In 2012, while B.C. was a net loser of about 7,000 in interprovincial movements, Alberta gained about 43,000 and Saskatchewan gained about 2,500 people. NDP leader Adrian Dix said Wednesday the latest totals mean B.C. has lost a net 12,000 people to other provinces since Premier Christy Clark took over. Dix said the number of private sector jobs has declined since Clark launched her jobs plan, and her government continues to cut the budget for job skill training. Dix said the NDP government of the 1990s saw an increase of 129,000 people in interprovincial migration, and during Gordon Campbell’s term, there was a net increase of 64,000. Clark shrugged off the numbers Wednesday, saying B.C.’s overall population continues to grow. “More people are coming here than are leaving, and we need to continue to work to make sure that more people are staying,” Clark said. “We’re competing hard with Alberta and the oil sands to keep people here.” B.C.’s rising total population is a result of international immigration, offset by the losses to other provinces by people moving within Canada. Ontario has also steadily lost people inter-provincially in recent years, including a national high of 6,823 in the first three months of this year.

Seniors Centre on the move Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Campbell River seniors were forced to move again after talks with the owner of the Campbell River Common broke down last month. The Seniors’ Centre, which was located inside the mall in an empty store across from Bootlegger was to relocate to the former Iron Kettle space earlier this month. But Bruno Fornika, chair of the committee working to find the seniors their own building, said those plans went downhill. “After extensive discussion with our landlord, Allan Edie, the board of directors of the Seniors’ Centre Society could not reach an agreement and were asked to move,” Fornika said. “This move took place on May 31.” Since then, the Seniors Centre, which has nearly 600 members, has been operating out of the Radiant Life Community Church on Cypress Street, behind the downtown fire hall and next to Coast Realty. While the seniors, who were left virtually homeless, were thankful to be taken in, it’s a temporary solution. The Seniors’ Centre is only available and open to the public Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fri-

days from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. “The Radiant Life church has become our temporary home and we are grateful to them for taking us in,” said Helen Whitaker, a retired nurse and recorder for the seniors’ building committee. “But we need to make some plans for winter when the church becomes busy with its primary mission of service in the downtown area.” The building is also nowhere near the 8,000 square feet the seniors are looking for. “Since we only have about 1,000 square feet of space available, we have had to limit the activities that can occur,” Fornika said. There’s also not enough room to accommodate the pool tables – a staple at the former location. One thing that hasn’t changed, though, is the lunch program thanks to the kitchen at Radiant Life. Still, on the Seniors’ Centre website, the board of directors promised it is “working hard to find a new bigger location were we can be able to provide a full weekly schedule once again.” To make good on that promise, the Seniors’ Society has been “looking under every rock to find a larger, more

permanent location” Fornika said. The seniors are currently in discussions with the city to look into the possibility of acquiring the use of the former Evergreen school. Fornika said the society met with School District 72’s Secretary Treasurer, Kevin Patrick, to discuss that possibility. Fornika also plans to make a presentation to the board of education at its June 25 meeting. “We hope to make a presentation to try to convince the school board to discuss this matter with the city,” Fornika said. Whitaker said she would like to see the city get involved. “We are hoping that the city can help us negotiate access to the empty school,” Whitaker said. “With the help of the city and maybe with another not-for-profit group, we could really transform Evergreen and have it rejuvenated and humming with activities again. Hope and persistence are our primary assets the moment.” The society has already approached the city a few times in the past. The most recent was in 2009 and again this past April. The society asked city council to set aside $250,000 for the seniors

to renovate any new space they could find but that was turned down because there’s no room in this year’s budget which was set by council in January. Fornika noted that before 2009, a Seniors’ Centre didn’t even exist in Campbell River and the local group is one of the few Seniors’ Centres in the province that doesn’t get any substantial financial support from its local government. Whitaker said it’s in the city’s best interest to look after its seniors. “All the successful senior centres that keep seniors active, socially engaged, not using emergency services, and not using social services, those cities (are healthier communities),” Whitaker said. “When you have healthy seniors, you have less use of expensive social services.” Whitaker also noted that in most Island communities the working model is a partnership between seniors and the municipality, and Campbell River should be no different. Instead, it’s been up to the seniors. The first Seniors Centre opened on March 1, 2009 at Ironwood Place – a Vancouver Island Health Authority-owned building.

All’s well…

Firefighters check out a Mercedes following a near head-on collision Friday afternoon in Oyster Bay. According to Campbell River RCMP, the Mercedes was northbound on the Island Highway when it began to cross over the centre line. A family of five, heading south on vacation in a pickup truck, was southbound when the car began to veer into their path. Fortunately, dad was alert at the wheel as he quickly turned out of the way, sending the pickup onto the front lawn of a trailer park. An ambulance crew was called out and to treat a couple people for minor injuries. The elderly couple in the car were also okay, but the vehicle was damaged after it careened through a ditch.

Our View

Creature comforts A video posted to YouTube of a bear entering and exiting a pickup truck by unlatching the doors might be funny for human viewers safely ensconced in their concrete and glass condos, but encounters with wildlife in the city We say: We rarely end well. For the animals. It seems every spring there have to learn are sightings of bears in urban to co-exist with neighbourhoods ambling through backyards and down alleys tipping over wildlife garbage cans, pawing at bird feeders. Posters on light standards of missing cats and small dogs often signify a coyote is on the prowl, turning docile

pets into easy prey. Recently, a deer somehow managed to wander through the busy streets of New Westminster for hours before conservation officers were finally notified. Sadly the otherwise healthy and robust deer didn’t survive the shot from a tranquilizer gun. Ungulates like deer don’t react well to tranquilizing drugs, said Dave Cox of the Conservation Officer Service, who observed the animal for one-and-a-half hours before felling it. The stress of dodging traffic, barking dogs and curious humans probably didn’t help. One of the great allures of living in British Columbia is the vast natural wilderness that begins right in our

backyard. It’s easy to be at a grocery store in the morning and then having a picnic in the middle of a first or second growth forest, surrounded by mountains and trees for as far as the eye can see in the afternoon. Odds are there’s creatures amongst those trees. And sometimes they wander out of those woods and into our streets. At first blush it may seem an infringement on our space, but we have to remember their ancestors were here long before us. We’re encroaching on territories and behaviours bred into them for thousands of years. We need to respect their coexistence with us. – Black Press

SPCA forced to vacate

Re: Out On A Limb: Why did we have to go through all this? Why did we have to go through all this?” Those are the words of Campbell River Mirror’s editor. Why indeed did we have to go through this? It certainly wasn’t very pleasant for any of the parties involved. But to suggest that the BCSPCA pulled out of Campbell River in a “hissy fit” is quite laughable. Surely, you can’t really think that an organization such as the BCSPCA, founded in 1895, steeped in the noble tradition of animal welfare would act so irresponsibly? Once again, the CRSPCA was asked to vacate the premises, the contract for impounding and animal bylaws enforcement was not renewed. They relied on the city to heavily subsidize their operations in animal welfare by providing a “not always pleasant” job of by-laws enforcement. They had to relinquish their vehicles that they used, and no longer had a premises that they could work out of. What were they suppose to do? The SPCA were allowed to use the premises on Merecroft Road at the discretion of the city. Once the contract was not renewed, they lost their ability to generate income. Continued on A9

Past names get buried in my old ‘386 memory’

Paul Rudan No, really

The name sure rang a bell, but the face looked different. It’s usually the opposite. After working in a community for more than two decades you meet a lot of people...a lot of people! And unlike the good politician who remembers every name of every person they’ve ever met, I remember faces, but the names can be a struggle. When I run into someone I briefly met or interviewed 10 or more years ago, my brain recognizes their features and then recalls the story they were part of, but the name takes more time. I just say, “It’s my 386 at work. Recall takes some time, but there’s plenty of memory!” And for those of you who don’t know,

a 386 is an old computer. This time though the name was too familiar, Bud Logan, but the face didn’t seem to match. The short dark hair was hidden by a cowboy hat and the face had a very grey goatee. I e-mailed him and asked if his given name is Patrick? It didn’t take long before he e-mailed me back to confirm that, yes, it was indeed an old friend. I first met Patrick, better known as Bud, back in the early 1990s. He was volunteering his time to teach students native art techniques at the former Campbellton Elementary School. I remarked that his art reminded me of Carl Ray’s work. Ray, a talented Cree painter from northern Ontario, died tragically in 1978, and his works hang in

many important Canadian collections. Well, I had no idea that Cree blood also flows through blue-eyed Bud and I had just unwittingly paid him one of the biggest compliments he had ever heard at this stage in his artistic career. I wrote a couple more stories and took photos of Bud at work, and one day he stopped by the office to give me something. It was just a “small thank-you,” he said as he handed over one of his finest signed prints. I loved it. Still do, and it hangs proudly in my home. Now, almost 20 years later, our paths cross again. This time though, it’s not about art. Far from it, in fact. Bud, you may have read in Wednesday’s paper, was one of

the organizers who spearheaded last weekend’s logging road clean-up. About 25 volunteers cleared out more than 17 tons of illegally dumped trash from the logging road, located just north of the Willis Road-Inland Highway intersection. Bud figures there’s another ton left and the volunteers will be back this Saturday to finish the job. However, they’re not stopping there. There’s more illegal dump sites – because some people are just too cheap and ignorant to pay tipping fees – and more volunteers are needed to do a job no one else wants to do. I will go visit my old friend on Saturday and you should too. Check out the Facebook page: Shame The Logging Road Dumpers.


OPINION OPINION

SPCA: Let us create a new progressive chapter

Continued from A8

How long could anyone last if they were homeless and incomeless? Especially when they were suppose to house and feed 800 cats and 500 dogs per year. In my opinion, they did the only thing that they could do responsibly. Withdraw, regroup, restrategize and adapt. An adoption and education centre is definitely run on a smaller scale than a full sized shelter. An adoption centre runs with a smaller staff and relies more heavily on volunteers. And yes, a higher level of fundraising is required, yearly, because the CRSPCA is no longer subsidized. Let’s hope the City of Campbell River shows some goodwill and generosity by offering an annual operating grant. The much smaller District of Powell River bestows a $75,000 annual grant to the SPCA. How come Campbell River is one of the rare communities to pull their financial support from the SPCA? There have been other communities that could not support an SPCA and they left town quietly without any public outcry. Campbell River has shown that they were not one of those communities. Yes, we rallied together and raised a large amount of money. Let us look forward to a new beginning. Let us learn from our mistakes. Let us create a new SPCA that is progressive and becomes a showcase for our province. Let us never to become complacent. “Hissy fit” indeed! Dr. Helen Kwong Campbell River

Lawn pesticides are eminently unsafe

Re: Letter to Editor - Pesticides can be used safely (Mirror June 19). This is my response to a letter from Lorne Hepworth, President of a lobby group based in Ottawa. I am responding to his letter promoting the use of lawn pesticides, published in Campbell River Mirror on June 18, 2013. Dr. Hepworth has absolutely no credibility among independent scientists.

His faith in Health Canada’s evaluation of pesticides is entirely misplaced. Lawn pesticides are eminently unsafe, being especially harmful to children and pets. On the other hand, lawns can be maintained in an excellent condition without the use of pesticides. K. Jean Cottam, PhD Nepean, Ont.

Just wanted to put this out there and let the municipal general manager know that I have hung up a new shingle, and I am in the process of becoming a “Stop sign Installer”. I offer the city an opening day special of two stop signs, installed, plus four...

yes, four, new “Traffic Pattern Change Ahead” signs, installed, for the low, low cost of $200,000 plus tax. We might even throw in some painting of lines, but hurry, at these prices we expect to be out of business soon. Steve Ostler

We’ll see who delivers for money paid A local boy gets a real job and MLA Claire Trevena is disgusted? Let me tell you about some of us North Islanders’ disgust. A few years back the generous people of the North Island gave an underemployed (or was it unemployed?) union activist/journalist/consultant a job. Us good North Islanders paid her over a million dollars in accumulated salary and other compensations. Yes an expenses paid vacation to South Africa as well. On top of this we generously gave her

a lifetime pension for...? She has been oh so good at claiming she supported this or that North Island cause but only after surfing the headlines and then nimbly jumping on the passing community band wagon. What has Trevena really delivered on that was not already in the works by a North Islander? Let’s see who will deliver for the North Island, the $100,000/year Trevena or the $90,000/year Facey.

Buy a hammer, build community

The Home Depot Canada Foundation’s purpose is to give back to communities it serves by supporting affordable housing and building strong communities for Canadians in need. This year, Campbell River’s Home Depot Canada store has chosen Willow Point Supportive Living Society as its partner to benefit from its fundraiser. From May 30 to July 3, funds are raised by customers purchasing a $2 “Paper Hammer” at the checkouts in the store. All funds raised will go to Willow Point Supportive Living Society. Willow Point Supportive Living Society is a totally self-supporting non-profit charitable society that owns and operates a complex at 142 Larwood Road. Its mandate is ‘to provide a range of affordable housing to seniors which would tend to prevent,

City plans for property tax payment peak to reduce wait times

The Ken and Murray Forde House is run by the Willow Point Supportive Living Society, which will benefit from Home Depot’s Buy a Hammer initiative.

shorten or delay facility placement by supporting those that wish to maintain an independent life style in the environment of their choice’. The Supportive Living Society appreciates donations to cover the cost of ‘extras’ that help make living independently easier such as grab bars, levered handles on

taps and door knobs, raised toilets, walk-in tub-to-shower conversions, raised gardens and to address any other accessibility issues that come up. Donations are gratefully accepted with tax receipts given for any donations of $20 or more. Please visit the society’s website at www. wpsls.com for more.

City Hall is making room for an anticipated rush of peak period property tax payments again this year. As in past years, as of Wednesday, June 19, parking stalls on either side of city hall will be available to the public so people will have close access to the building. And again this year, in the event of a line-up, a Finance Department employee will review paperwork to make sure all forms are completed with correct details before people get to the counter. “Campbell River property tax payments done in person at City Hall tend to peak during the final week leading up to deadline,” says Laura Ciarniello, the City’s general manager of corporate services. “People can expect to wait in line a bit during this time, and between closer parking and a review of the paperwork ahead of time, we’re aiming

to reduce the payment processing time during the final rush.” In-person payments can be made at City Hall by cash, cheque or debit card. The City cannot accept payment by credit card. Property tax payments can also be mailed, and post-dated cheques are accepted. A secure and convenient drop-box for post-dated cheques is available at the main door to City Hall. “Tax notices sent at the end of May included an insert that listed all the various methods available to property owners for property tax payment,” Ciarniello says. “The easiest way for people to reduce the wait time is to pay property taxes and apply for the Homeowner Grant via the Internet.” Homeowner grants claimed online for Campbell River properties continue to increase, from 16.91 per cent of grants in 2010 to 22.31

per cent in 2012. Howto information for online payments has been posted on City’s website (www.campbellriver.ca) under What’s New. Property owners are reminded that in order to avoid a 10 per cent penalty, payment and completed Home Owner Grant Applications must be received by July 2, 2013. Things to remember about the Home Owner Grant: n Residential property owners can claim the Home Owner Grant without paying property taxes. n Banks and financial institutions cannot claim the home owner grant for you. How to apply for the Home Owner Grant Go online to www. campbellriver.ca and click on “Home Owner Grant” then launch the Home Owner Grant application from the

link at the bottom of the screen. Use your access code (called “Access” on your tax notice, beside the folio number). Apply in person at City Hall 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays. Property owners are reminded to check tax notices and water and sewer charges to ensure active or de-activated secondary suites are correctly noted in the property tax calculation. People who have not received a tax notice are asked to contact the City’s Finance Department at 250-286-5715. The City has posted information on its website that details how to pay property taxes and outlines how these funds are used to provide city services. A summary of this information has also been published in local newspapers, and a paper copy is available by contacting city hall.

FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 2013 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Topographical base maps go mobile Recreationalists and resource professionals looking for an easier way to explore B.C.’s wilderness can now leave their fold-out maps at home. GeoBC has created a series of free, highresolution topographical maps specifically designed for viewing on mobile devices. GeoBC’s popular Terrain Resource Information Management (TRIM) base map series has been redesigned to enable the GPS georeferencing functionality associated with mobile devices and allow users to zoom into small areas of the new maps without compromising detail. Over 7,000 free maps covering the entire province of British Columbia (at a scale of 1:20,000) are now available as downloadable PDF files through GeoBC’s Base Map Online Store or through its popular KML viewer (with TIFF versions coming soon). The attractive and easy-to-use maps feature elevation contours, roads, railways, airports, transmission lines, population centres, built-up

areas, municipal and regional boundaries, lakes, waterways, wetlands, wooded areas, trails, campgrounds, coastlines, parks, protected areas, place names and local landmarks. This new generation of TRIM maps is optimized for use on mobile devices, including iPhones, iPads and Android tablets and smartphones. The maps are “spatially aware,” so they show the user’s current location if the mobile device has GPS capability. When users open a downloaded PDF map for their current location, their starting position is automatically marked and they can track their movements on the map as they explore all around the area. This feature is not only useful for hikers, campers, anglers, hunters and snowmobilers, but also for researchers, engineers, biologists, archaeologists, geologists, miners, search and rescue crews, foresters and community planners. Field professionals can save time and increase productivity by plot-

ting points of interest on the downloaded PDF and then add notes, diagrams, drawings or other annotations on separate layers using a standard PDF reader. With more and more British C olumbians viewing digital maps on mobile devices, GeoBC has responded by developing new methods of delivering maps to resource professionals and the general public. GeoBC creates and manages a wide variety of geospatial information, including base maps, imagery, spatial data and other information related to natural resources and environmental stewardship in B.C. G e o B C pr i m a r i l y provides consultation services to government departments in B.C. and elsewhere in Canada, but its base mapping products are available to everyone. Quick Facts: n GeoBC’s new TRIM map series is optimized for viewing on mobile devices, but it is not a mobile app.

The maps are downloaded onto a desktop or laptop computer (currently as Adobe PDF files, with other formats coming online soon) and then transferred to mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets. n The maps are popular in rural areas where web-based map applications, such as Google Maps, may not be available due to limited Internet access. n The maps have been optimized to retain detail at high magnifications without losing detail. n There are 7,027 maps at the 1:20,000 scale available online through GeoBC, covering every area of the province. Another series of 1:250,000 scale maps is in development.

Ombudsperson investigates administration of riparian zone protection program

B.C. Ombudsperson Kim Carter announced today that she has launched a systemic investigation into the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations administration of the Riparian Areas Regulation in British Columbia. The Regulation is part of the province’s environmental protection measures and is intended to preserve fish habitat by protecting the areas next to streams and other water courses from potentially harmful residential, commercial and industrial development. As part of the investigation process, the Ombudsperson is providing an opportunity for members of the public affected by the Regulation to provide input through a confidential on-line questionnaire at www.bcombudsperson.ca. “Seventeen and a half per cent of B.C.’s land – its most populated areas - is covered by this Regulation. We have received a number of complaints from people affected by the process”, says Carter. “If there are problems with the fair and reasonable administration of this process, our investigation may shed light on these gaps and any recommendations will be aimed at improving the administration of the Riparian Areas Regulation.” The investigation will look at administrative fairness issues such as the adequacy of public information,

2012. Included in the deficit is a $1.1 million tax shortfall carried over from 2011, plus a $1.3 million increase in costs related to contract commitments and inflationary increases, said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services. If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city. That one per cent increase would mean roughly $12 more per year in property taxes for the average homeowner. The city’s operating budget is approximately $37 million which Continued on A3

Tasty event puts some flavour into fundraising On Saturday June 8, Save-On-Foods hosted a food event in support of salmon conservation, restoration and enhancement. The event showcased local ingredients, and Campbell River culinary experts were onsite to prepare dishes for the Cookout Challenge. Isl an d Fi sh e r m an Magazine publisher and Pacific Salmon Foundation volunteer, Larry E. Stefanyk, was in attendance preparing delicious samples of sockeye salmon sausage sliders. Other participants included chefs from Boston Pizza and Misty Fin’s Restaurant, an energetic Save-On-Foods team, and Rikki Tyler from 99.7 The River. More than $650 was raised at the event, and the Pacific Salmon Foundation will direct these funds towards salmon projects in the local region. “Community partnerships and local events not only provide fundraising opportunities, but also raise awareness about the Foundation’s programs and activities in the local region,” said Dr. Brian Riddell, President & CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation. Brend a McInt y re, Director of Major of Events for the foundation, attended the SaveOn-Fo o ds C o okout Challenge to answer any questions about foundation programing and local projects.

The Campbell River Arts Council, in partnership with the City of Campbell River, has unveiled another public artwork on a water utility box (or pressure reducing valve box) on Woodburn Road.   Designed by artist Alex Witcombe, the artwork depicts the complex interconnections of life both within and surrounding a river system. The art was selected through the Arts Council’s public art call and follows the unveiling of Pete the Pen’s work on a similar box on Galernoa Road a few weeks ago. The Arts Council congratulated the city on implementing a creative approach to activating public art in our community.

Are you a senior who needs some assistance with odd jobs around the house and garden but can’t afford to hire someone? Youth for Seniors can help. The Youth for Seniors project is a free “odd job” service offered by The John Howard Society of North Island (JHSNI) for seniors who are in need of assistance with household chores. These jobs are completed by youth who are looking to gain valuable work experience and employment skills. The youth are supervised by a JHSNI staff member and are paid an hourly wage for their work. This project was made possible thanks to funding provided by Service Canada – Canada Summer Jobs and generous donations from members of the community. “Youth for Seniors gives youth the opportunity to connect with different members of the community while acquiring valuable work experience,” said Morag Ramsey, Youth for Seniors Coordinator. “It’s a win-win situation for both the youth and the senior. The seniors appreciate the help and the youth gain experience to build their resume.” Wondering what kinds of jobs Youth for Seniors can help you with? Our youth perform tasks such as yard work, light housekeeping, cleaning your car, and other odd jobs. If you are a senior who is in need of some assistance with household chores, contact Youth for Seniors Coordinator, Morag Ramsey, at 250-2035044.

The City of Campbell River’s outdoor pool remains closed as work continues to repair a leak. Plans to open the pool for the summer were delayed when a leak near a floor drain was discovered June 13 during repairs to the pool’s water circulation system. “The pool basin is now over 50 years old and ensuring it remains watertight each summer is an ongoing challenge,” says Ross Milnthorp, the City’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. “Patching the aging concrete during a recent upgrade to the pool’s circulation system was underway to meet Health Code regulations, and that work led us to discover the most recent leak.” Constructed by the Rotary Club in 1960, the Centennial Pool is run by thecity and sees approximately 10,000 visitors each summer. People attend swim lessons, camps, lifesaving courses, kayak lessons, school, private and party rentals, public and length swims, fitness classes, the Rotary Duck Dip, swim club training and annual swim meet. “Our maintenance contractor and city staff have been working hard to get the pool open again since a leak was first noticed,” Milnthorp adds. “Once the leak has been repaired, we will proceed with filling it with water, heating the water and balancing the water chemistry. We’ll be sure to notify the community of the timing for opening this popular facility as soon as we can confirm the details.” The city will continue to issue updates on the pool’s status via its website and Facebook page. “We appreciate the patience of all our customers – families, swim teams, schools and the people who book the pool for private rentals. Until we are able to open the outdoor pool, we encourage swimmers to use the indoor pool at Strathcona Gardens – and people can enjoy water fun at the new splash park in Willow Point as well,” Milnthorp says.

Exchange student makes a lasting impression Edison Wang, a strong-willed 17 year old Taiwanese exchange student, has been in Campbell River since September 2012 and returns home in July 2013. Wang was determined that before he left he would make a lasting positive impression on Campbell River residents and encourage them to learn more about Taiwan. Wang began attending international events hosted by the Immigrant Welcome Centre which sparked his idea of hosting A Taste of Asia, that took place June 8  to showcase East and Southeast Asia, specifically his home country of Taiwan. “I am impressed that so many people come and have fun at the event – over 1,200,” Wang said. “I hope this will be bigger and even better next year.” Wang hosted the event with support from the Immigrant Welcome Centre and the Taipei Cultural and Economic office in Vancouver. This was Wang’s first time to Campbell River and the first year the Taipei City officially sent high school students on an exchange and only

five students in Taipei were chosen. When looking at the number of students to choose from, that fact that Wang was chosen is like winning the lottery. For perspective, the island of Taiwan is only 4,000 square kilometers larger than Vancouver Island. The key difference is that while all of Vancouver Island holds 750,000 residents, Taiwan holds over 23 million (in all of Canada there are only 35 million people). This calculates into us lucky local islanders having a population density of only 23 people per square kilometer compared with a whopping 639 people per square kilometer in Taiwan. If you think this is crowded, Wang is from Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, which holds 2.6 million people creating a population density of 9,600 people per square kilometer. “I was really lucky to be chosen and happy that I was because my eight-month experience in Campbell River has been unforgettable. I have met so many nice people and had many cool experiences,” said Wang.

City councillour Andrew Adams of the Ishikari Twinning Society working together Taiwanese exchange students Edison Wang, Aaron Lin and Minnie Chen to promote Asian culture to Campbell Riverites.

Campbell River’s exchange students who spend a year abroad are able to count a few courses towards their high school diploma. Wang will have to start a year behind when he returns home. For Wang, a regular high school day starts at 7:30 a.m. and ends at

birth. It is never too early to begin reading to your baby. Reading early and often will give your child the best chance for learning to read when they enter school. Research is clear

that the more books a child is exposed to the easier time they will have with written words. In order to share this information Literacy Now has partnered with several

tory, most students attend. After the daily marathon of school, students then finish their homework from regular school and get to bed around midnight. Wang’s perspective on school is that “school is fine but you have to spend time to know

community groups to prepare 400 Books for Babies bags to be distributed by Public Health Nurses. The bag is filled with a great children’s board book, a CD by Charlotte

why you are learning all these things, practice what you’ve learned. It will make you feel that it’s worth it.” Wang would like to thank Campbell River residents and his host family, the Koizumi’s, for making his stay memorable. Shannon Briggs,

Diamond to teach babies songs, a DVD that focuses on one of reading, math, and speaking skills and lots of helpful information. Working closely with Success by Six,

Diversity Projects Coordinator for the Immigrant Welcome Centre said, “The event was so successful and popular that we are looking to make this an annual event combined with Ocean’s Day. “Edison really did leave his mark on Campbell River.”

Literacy Now is working to improve the literacy of young children. If you are a new mom and have been missed, contact the Public Health Unit and ask for your Books for Babies bag.

Win Fabulous Prizes!

Campbell River dancer Beatrix Bellosillo, a student at Urban Dance Connection, has been awarded a scholarship to attend the Victoria Academy of Ballet Summer Intensive for three weeks this July.   Bellosillo just completed her second season with Dancestreams Youth Dance Company, a pre-professional repertory company for talented teens from all Island communities.  Dancestreams afforded her the opportunity to perform the works of professional choreographers James Gnam, Maiko Miyauchi, Crystal Pite and Hannah Stilwell during this past season.  In addition to her six hours each Sunday with Dancestreams, she studies ballet, pointe, jazz, and modern at her home studio. Dance, and especially ballet, is her favourite thing to do above all.  Bellosillo loves to dance because there are no words, and she says Dancestreams is “tons of fun!”  Bellosillo intends to pursue a professional career in dance.    Dancestreams Youth Dance Company, Vancouver Island’s longest running pre-professional company for talented teens, will hold auditions for the coming

Thank You & Farewell I started my career with Black Press more than 20 years ago at The Vernon Morning Star where I was hired into the classified department. Soon after I was asked to be part of a pilot program within the production department which unknown to me at the time would launch me into a long creative career in the industry. I transferred to the Campbell River Mirror in 1995 and was an advertising salesperson until it was decided to revamp the production department to follow what the Vernon paper had done. That was to partner advertising reps with a creative production person. The pod system was born at The Mirror and that was where I stayed until becoming the Sales Manager and then promoted to Publisher in 2006. I will be leaving The Mirror to join our sister paper in Courtenay where I will become the Publisher July 1st. I thoroughly enjoy living, working and playing in Campbell River. It has been my home for 18 years and I have made some incredible friends and business acquaintances. I will miss the camaraderie I share with the team at The Mirror and thank them for the dedication they have shown through all my years here. Jayme Nelson, Riley Crape, and Hayley Guilderson prepare for the first Museum puppet show of the season.

Museum puppets brought out of winter hibernation

The summer students at the Museum at Campbell River are pleased to announce that the puppets have returned from their winter hibernation. Each Tuesday and Sat-

urday, starting Tuesday, June 25, there will be two shows daily: one at 10:30 a.m. and one at 1:30 p.m. The shows will run through July and August and will cost $2

per person (children 3 and under get in free). The old gang will take to the stage once again and this year will feature appearances by Peter Puget, Lord Bacon, and

even Captain Vancouver. Each show is 20 minutes long and will be followed by a craft. Call 250-2873103 or email summer. programs@crmuseum. ca for more information.

There are so many people in this community I would like to thank - our readers, businesses, non profit groups and the amazing volunteers we have. I have enjoyed the committees I have had the privilege of being involved with and wish you all the very best for the future. I’d like to welcome the new Publisher, Dave Hamilton to this incredible city. I just know he will love it here - after all this is paradise! I have no doubt that the future is very bright for Campbell River and wish you all much success. I look forward to new challenges when I become Publisher for the Comox Valley Record. They are an amazing team of talented and hard working people and I am impressed by the quality of the publications they produce. Zena Williams

Desolation Sound’s a great story It can be said with some confidence that the Discovery Islands are a world class boating adventure. The history, the geography and the wildlife combine to create a unique narrative that stands strong alongside the great global tales. This summer the Museum at Campbell River is offering a series of guided Historic Tours each Sunday during July and August that explore the Discovery Islands and points north. The first trip is planned for July 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and will travel to Desolation Sound.  Considered to be one of the west coast’s premier cruising destinations, Desolation Sound abounds with the beautiful. The tour, offered through a partnership with Discovery Marine Safaris , cruises from Campbell River, heading south and east, passing historic Cape Mudge Indian Reserve on Quadra Island and the Island’s lighthouse built in 1898.  Captain Vancouver visited the Coast Salish living on Quadra in 1792, commenting that they “conducted themselves with the greatest civility and respect.” Later, Quadra Island became an important

lions and seals along the shore. Because of its unusual rainshadow climate, Mitelnatch has unique flora and fauna (cactus for example), which is not found on other Gulf Islands.  Sheep were once kept there by the Manson family of Cortes Island. Entering into Desolation Sound, it is difficult to believe that Captain

Vancouver once proclaimed the area to be so dismal, that he named it as he did. With the vista of the snow capped Coastal Mountains to the east, the verdant landscape of West Redonda Island and picturesque Lewis Channel to the north, it represents the quintessential beauty of British Columbia’s west coast.  On the southern tip of

West Redonda, the boat cruises into the sanctuary of Refuge Cove, long a boater’s safe haven. Today, it boasts a marina, fuel dock, general store, restaurant and art gallery.  The Museum’s tour includes a stop for lunch here and an opportunity to get off the boat and wander around, taking in the quaint surroundings. The tour continues with a stop at beautiful Cassel Falls in Teakerne Arm and returns around the north end of Cortes Island, along Sutil Channel passing by the shores of Read Island and southern Quadra Island.  Always a delight, wild life viewing is often a part of every trip with the crew of Discovery Marine Safaris sharing their knowledge of where and when exotic marine mammals like whales are likely to appear along the route. The Museum is offering three trips to Desolation Sound this year on the following Sundays: July 7, August 4 and Sept. 15.  The cost for these trips is $140 including the lunch stop at Refuge Cove.  To reserve a seat call the Museum at 250-2873103. For a complete listing of boat tours this summer visit the website at www.crmuseum.ca

Drive Smart BC Are Collisions an Acceptable Risk of Driving?

2X14 2X14

Collisions have not been required by law to be reported to the police for quite some time now. In many municipalities today the police don’t even attend collisions unless someone has been hurt or killed. Instead, the fire department may show up and the firefighters help participants exchange information and clear the scene. There are no traffic tickets issued to offenders who cause minor injury and property damage collisions when this is the case. ICBC tells me that it cannot provide complete and accurate collision information for the province because the police no longer report collisions. Don’t you find it odd that the agency charged with collision reduction doesn’t have a clear picture of the scope of the problem? No doubt you have heard the proverb “Look after the pennies and the dollars will look after themselves.” Can we afford to ignore collisions that through fortune didn’t turn out to be serious?

TYEE CHEV CHEV TYEE

I asked both ICBC and the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles how many collisions a driver had to cause before some corrective action was taken if the driver was not ticketed. The Superintendent directed me to ICBC and ICBC said that a prohibition from driving could result, but it would be based on the driver’s record of violations. Re-testing or mandatory training were not commented on, even though I asked about this explicitly. It appears to me that minor collisions are becoming just another acceptable risk that we assume when we drive on BC highways. The direct costs are spread among us all via insurance and the indirect costs are either not compensated for or are covered through taxation. Will the size of these acceptable risks increase in future because of the situation today? The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience.

Letitia Rampane participated in the first Digital Harvest and then went on to become one of the program’s leaders.

Digital Harvest – Setting the table for health In celebration of National Aboriginal Day on Friday June 21, Vancouver Island Health Authority is sharing this story about Digital Harvest, a program for Aboriginal youth, facilitated by the health authority’s Community Nutritionist for Aboriginal Health. Digital Harvest is a community-based initiative that brings together Aboriginal elders and youth to engage in learning about the food, land and culture of Vancouver Island. Over a weekend, elders share their cultural knowledge and practices around traditional foods. Youth then return home and, using digital cameras, create their own stories inspired by these lessons. The digital stories are shared locally and internationally, expanding the education to other youth and communities.  “I grew up eating indigenous foods and took them for granted— it had a huge impact on me to see how urban First Nations people live and to learn that they don’t have access to the foods I know so well,” says Letitia Rampane, a participant in the first workshop who went on to become one of the program’s youth leaders.  She captured her experience in a video that can be viewed here:  http://www. youtube.com/watch?v=YBYNaufoYOo. Keenan Jules, an Aboriginal youth researcher from Kyquot working at the conference brought his perspective. “Some of the kids participating aren’t used to eating foods like salmon and moose. They eat more McDonalds and drink lots of pop,” he said. Jules added that it’s important to remember where you come from. “I thought I knew a lot about traditional foods before I came to the workshop, but talking about it inspired me to cut out sugary drinks and limit how many times I go for fast food,” he said. “This is about setting the table for a healthy lifestyle, creating positive relationships to the food, land and culture of Aboriginal people,” said Fiona Devereaux, VIHA’s Community Nutritionist for Aboriginal Health. “We see an erosion in the transfer of knowledge between generations, leaving many young people without the knowledge or skills for cooking and eating— not only traditional foods, but today’s healthy foods.” Combining the teaching of the elders with digital storytelling by youth is a powerful solution. “We found a way to connect today’s youth, who are passionate about technology, with the teaching of the elders and ancestors,” added Devereaux. “These videos bring the voices of the elders and the youth together in a way

that connects the old ways of teaching with the learners of today.” Elder Barbara Whyte from Comox attended the Digital Harvest. She found it to be a powerful opportunity for elders to share their knowledge and connect with youth. “It’s important for us to hand down this information, to see our traditions and knowledge carried on to the next generation,” said Whyte. “It’s empowering for Elders to be heard.” The first Digital Harvest program came together in February 2010, facilitated by a group that included nutritionists from Vancouver Island Health’s Aboriginal Health program. Youth and elders gathered in Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, where elders shared their knowledge while traditional foods like mussels, crab, rock stickers, sea urchins and oolichan were served, many of which the youth had never tried before. The second Digital Harvest program took place earlier this year. “In my ten years of working in Aboriginal communities, this project has been one of the most satisfying,” said Devereaux. “As organizers, we all worked hard to get people there, have healthy foods and engaging learning activities. However, the magic really happened when space was created for youth and elders to learn from one another and feed off each other’s energy.”  The Digital Harvest workshop is part of Prevention and Preservation, a project led by Vancouver Island University’s Office for Community Partnerships in Health Research and generously funded by the Vancouver Foundation. Other partners include Vancouver Island Health, Aboriginal Health, Vancouver Island Coastal Communities Indigenous Food Network, and  Canadian Diabetes Association. This project aims to celebrate First Nations cultural practices and preserve cultural knowledge digitally while increasing community research capacity. Aboriginal youth will compile elders’ knowledge of healthy life ways, health foods and community history, and transmit this knowledge to other youth through the medium of digital photo stories. The project will enhance intergenerational knowledge-sharing and connection to community while promoting healthy lifestyles. The long-term goal is to reduce the disproportionate number of individuals in First Nations communities suffering from diabetes and other chronic diseases.

Bantam Ravens win one of four weekend games The Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam A Ravens played four lacrosse games last weekend to complete the regular season. The Ravens kicked things off with a “home” game in Courtenay against Nanaimo Timbermen on June 14. The Ravens seemed lethargic and Nanaimo jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Mason Osterhout-Code grabbed the ball off a face-off, took it right through the heart of the defence, and found the bottom corner of the net to put Campbell River on the scoreboard. Early in the second, Lukas Lund found Osterhout-Code cutting through the house, fed him the ball and again lit the red light. Off the ensuing face-off, Liam Rivett got the ball and wired a wicked shot to tie the game 3-3. Zach Lantayao gave the Ravens their first lead and then Matthew Leard scored to make it 5-3, but that was all the scoring the locals could muster. Nanaimo scored four answered goals and took the game 7-5. Saturday was double-header against Juan de Fuca 2 (JDF2). In the opener, the Ravens fell behind 2-0 before Osterhout-Code got them on the board, assisted by Lontayao. Campbell River tied it up when Ross Rickman picked off a loose ball and capitalized on the breakaway. Nolan Fair made a spin-spin move then let it rip to put the Ravens ahead at the end of the first, 3-2. Lund extended the lead in the second as he wired a shot into the top corner of the net. From there on, it was all Ravens as they went on to a 9-3 victory with other goals coming from Rivett, Fair, Lund, Turko and Leard. The second game of the was not as favourable as the first as JDF2 was in a must-win situation to make the playoffs. The Victoria squad pulled out all the stops and replied with a 9-3 victory. Reilly Doney led Campbell River with two goals while Lontayao netted the third. On Sunday, Juan de Fuca 1 (JDF1), one of the best teams in the province, came to Campbell River. They have beaten many Lower Mainland teams in tournaments and sent several players to the Team BC camp. They showed the Ravens what a high-tempo motion offence can do as they worked tirelessly in the offensive zone to setup many high quality shots and scoring chances in a convincing 9-2 victory. The Ravens are awaiting to find out their first round playoff opponent.

Brayden’s first run! Ten-yearold boy with cerebral palsy scores big in many ways Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Baseball firsts are always important. In the big leagues you get your first hit, they save you the ball for the trophy case. Campbell River Minor Baseball doesn’t have the extra coin to give every player a ball for their first hit, but they might consider giving home plate to Brayden Patrick for his first run. A first run may not seem that special, unless you’re a special player like Brayden. The 10-year-old has cerebral palsy, a congenital brain disorder that affects motor skills. It hasn’t affected Brayden’s ability to “motor.” He’s a swimmer, drummer and guitar player whose determination is far greater than his disability. Still, playing team sports seemed somewhat out-of-reach due to Brayden’s limited mobility. That changed this spring when Brayden decided he wanted to play baseball. “His parents gave a lot of thought before signing him up,” explains Amanda Doherty, a

family friend and avid baseball mom. “The safety risks and possibility of not being accepted by his peers were potentially huge hurdles for Brayden.” This Saturday is the season wind-up and Doherty happily reports Brayden has cleared every hurdle as a mem-

ber of the Mosquito Mariners. He practices and plays with the intention of getting better every day and he’s made many new friends. One of Brayden’s biggest “leaps” took place during a league game on June 12. “Up until this point, his coaches had let him

have the option of having a runner take over from first – this night Brayden decided he wanted to run the bases himself,” says Doherty. Brayden worked the pitcher for a walk, advanced to second and third following singles by teammates, and then the big RBI hit came

Diazinon has been implicated in over 150 mass bird die-off incidences. Five: Control your cats by keeping them inside. It’s estimated that outdoor cats kill up to 3.7 billion birds a year. Studies conducted by National Geographic Society and University of Georgia in the so-called ‘kittycam’ project revealed 44 per cent of pet cats to be cutthroats, averaging one kill every 17 hours outdoors. A freeranging cat is a free-ranging killer.

ALSO…Strat hcona Lodge will be on-site to give free Canoe rides in their extra big canoe.

ood news for those yearning to attract more songbirds to backyards; simply create your own patch of bird habitat and winged visitors will make a beeline straight to your feeder. Here are the top five ways to make a yard more bird-friendly. One: Fill clean birdbath with fresh water daily. Sometimes, especially in summer, birds need water more than they need birdseed. Put a flat stone in the centre of the birdbath and don’t fill over it, to create a useable perch. Two: Plant bushes; birds need a hiding place for quick cover and thermal protection. An option is to Christine Scott create a twig pile near the Island Wild birdbath/feeder until bushes grow. Shrubs with berries provide birds with the bonus of food. Three: Plant flowers to assure birds have insects to feed their young. Use native plants to mimic natural surroundings (and help restore urban biodiversity). Some birds even prefer native plants. Four: Determine never to use pesticides, which cause long-term negative effects like eggshell thinning.

2013 a year to freshen up the Shoreline Arts Society chainsaw carving competition By Don Daniels, President, Shoreline Arts Society

W

Don Daniels is president of the Shoreline Arts Society.

hen I decided to volunteer my time this year and give back something to the community I was looking for a fun event and something I had an interest in. Last year I went down to Frank James Park to see the carvers at work every night. From start to finish I watched in amazement what the carvers did with the logs and transform it into a piece of art. I told Barb Bitner (past president) I would be happy to help in any way I could in next year’s event.

As President of The Campbell River Shoreline Arts Society I am privileged to work with a team of directors on the most fun project I can think of - the chainsaw carving competition known as Transformations on the Shore. The first thing we did was update the website and cleanup the delivery of last year’s carvings. As a volunteer organization, we depend on sponsorships and donations from our local merchants to keep the event going each year. As I drive around Campbell River I can see the many works of the carvers and we now have a maintenance plan that will be in place to restore and

re-stain some of the carvings from the past. If you haven’t attended the carving event in the past few years come out this year and see the detailed work that these carvers do. The carvers get to work starting on Wednesday June 26 to Sunday June 30. Presentations get underway Sunday at 2 p.m. I urge you to come out and see the carvers at work, enter to win the many raffle prizes and enjoy a walk in the park to see and hear what the Shoreline Arts Society brings to Campbell River. Check us out online at www.crshorelinearts.com

Many businesses make the Transformations on the Shore happen Without the following “star companies” this great event would not happen – no wood, no carvings for our great carvers to create these incredible masterpieces.

There may be some last minute sponsors after this was created, so we apologize if anyone has been missed.

The wood moving is a big chore. Last year any of the leftover wood was taken away by Home Hardware and their truck. With Discovery Crane’s help the wood is set up for the carvers each and every year.

CORPORATE TRUCKING SPONSORS

WOOD SPONSORS Without hesitation Western Forest Products donated beautiful cedar, they even had their northern division at Beaver Cove ready to help out. Additionally Island Timberlands, (locally better known as Sayward Timber), came up with a mix of fir and cedar.

Trucking wood to the park to get ready for the big event is done with the assistance of John Ellis and his company Pacific Wood Waste Inc. At least 50 large pieces of fir or cedar are moved to the park ready for the carvers to choose their piece and all their dreams that come with it.

PAINT SPONSORS After these wood carving masterpieces are created, they need to be preserved for all kinds of conditions, dampness, cold, rain, snow, winds, etc. The following corporate sponsors came up with some great preservatives.

Any that is left over from this year’s competition will go towards the maintenance of the older carvings from previous years that need attention: Cloverdale Paint General Paint Windsor Plywood Home Depot West-Can Carpet One – Benjamin Moore Paints Again, the above corporate sponsors have donated the finishes worth thousands of dollars for preserving the incredible carvings produced at this event.

Home Hardware, like many other businesses in the Campbell River area, pitch in with the heavy lifting and procurement of essential supplies.

TRANSFORMATIONS ON THE THE SHORE SHORE TRANSFORMATIONS ON

Max and Octy made it all happen Max Chickite is a Lekwiltok First Nations artist born and raised in Cape Mudge Village on Quadra Island. He began drawing, painting and carving at age 11. His early studies of his First Nations Kwagiulth heritage is reflected in both his paintings and carving. It was Canada Day, 1996 when Max stood carving a stump on the beach in front of Campbell River. A remarkable turn of events was about to unfold. After carving for about 10 hours, a wonderful Octopus was created...Octy was born.

Octy was a gift to the city from Max. The community responded with great appreciation for this gift. Thereafter, many things started to happen. Barb Comeau was watching Max carve that day and after they talked awhile, Barb was instrumental in suggesting a carving competition would be a good idea to pursue.

shape. In 1997, Max carved Orca to help kick off the first Annual Driftwood Carving Competition held on the Canada Day long weekend. Years later, for the 10th anniversary, Max created a new logo for the competition combining Octy with the Canadian Flag. The event has grown in leaps and bounds since those early day, this year it will celebrate its 17th Annual Competition. Everyone knows if... It’s Canada Day weekend it’s ....It’s carving in Campbell River
