Neighbours vow to stop berm idea Residents escalate their opposition to plans on Gardner’s Pond by Peninsula Streams Society Steven Heywood News staff

Devon MacKenzie/News staff

Ice Bear has been working to refurbish the mural at the corner of Beacon Avenue and Resthaven for the last month. The refreshed work will be unveiled today, June 21, at 11 a.m. See page 11 for more.

Residents of Mulberry Place in North Saanich vow to attend as many council meetings as possible to stay abreast of plans for nearby Gardner’s Pond — and to eventually stop them. Plans for a berm and boardwalk at the pond were revealed by the Peninsula Streams Society back in February at a North Saanich environmental advisory commission meeting. Ian Bruce, executive coordinator of the society “The residents told the News Review on are here and will keep June 12 that the plan is in the conceptual stage coming to ensure they and they have not made an application to do any are heard.” work. – Kirsteen Moore That’s not good enough for Mulberry Place residents who filled the public gallery during Monday night’s regular council meeting. They are saying that what Peninsula Streams has done to date is not good enough. They are demanding to be kept informed and are hoping to have the pond’s health evaluated. “The residents are here and will keep coming to ensure they are heard,” said Kirsteen Moore, who lives near the pond. Moore said she has never received any plans from Peninsula Streams for a berm or boardwalk and claimed her backyard would be made unusable if a berm is built to raise the water level in the pond by one meter. Bruce told the News Review the berm is being considered to raise the level of water in the pond.

Peninsula News in brief Aboriginal Day celebrations

SIDNEY — Artists, dancers and singers from First Nations communities will gather in Sidney today (Friday, June 21) to celebrate National Aboriginal Day. From noon until 5 p.m., Beacon Park will come alive with aboriginal performers, artists and speakers who invite the entire community to share the spirit.

Enjoy the Gardens

CENTRAL SAANICH — The Butchart Gardens is kicking off the 2013 Summer Season on July 1 with the launch of youth and child 12-month passes. “As the weather warms up and school breaks for the summer, there’s no need to look any further for something to do than in your own backyard,” said general manager Dave Cowen. The Gardens started the summer season earlier in June with the opening of Night Illuminations — a subtle play of light and shadow showcasing the gardens in a totally different way. Night Illuminations runs nightly until September 15. Sixty-four nights of summer entertainment and Firework Saturdays kick-off on June 29.

Running for those who can’t Marathon creates awareness of First Nations suicide issue Kyle Wells News staff

Kelly Paul’s Heliset Hále Marathon journey, which wraps up today at Tsartlip First Nation, really started about four and a half years ago, when Paul’s 17-year-old brother, Isaac Paul, took his own life. “I just wished, I never ever wanted anybody else to go through this or see this happen to them,” Paul said. “We’re just trying to create other support systems, to let people know what’s out there for them, that they’re not alone going through this. … “I do believe he goes with us everywhere we go. Same with our ancestors. They’re our strengths and support.” The Heliset Hale Marathon has Paul along with fellow Tsartlip member Bernice Smith and John Sampson of the Tsawout First Nation, running from tip to tip of Vancouver Island. The three runners headed out from Port Hardy on May 18, running from community to community, stopping to talk to First Nations reservations and various schools about the purpose behind their trip. They have been averaging about 15 to 27 kilometres per day. “It’s a long road,” said Sampson. The run is to raise awareness for suicide prevention and to bring up a topic the participants believe isn’t discussed enough. Suicide is the leading cause of death for First Nations youth and adults up to 44 years of age, according to a Health Canada study from 2003. The rate for First Nations males is 126 per 100,000 people, compared to 24 per 100,000 people for nonAboriginal males. “Suicide has been kind of a quiet thing, we haven’t spoken about it too much in our communities,” Sampson said. “It’s kind of pushed under the carpet.” “It’s a healing journey for me, but it’s also a healing journey for many other people, so they’re wanting somehow just to be connected to this,” Paul said. “It’s been a great response from everyone.” The group arrived in the West Shore on Tuesday, by canoe at Gold-

Kelly Paul and two other runners of the Heliset Hále Marathon arrived on the West Shore by canoe on Tuesday. The run is intended to raise awareness of First Nations suicide, something which touched Paul four years ago, when her brother took his own life.

Marathon celebrations at LÅU,WELNEW Tribal School Kelly Paul, Bernice Smith and John Sampson make the final run in the Heliset Håle Marathon today (Friday, june 21) from Elk Lake to the Tsartlip First Nation in Central Saanich. Marathon spokesperson Curtis Henry says there’s a planned gathering of other supporters form the community at around 10 a.m. at the Peninsula Co-op on Keating X Road. They plan to join up with the trio and run with them to the LÅU,WELNEW Tribal School, where the marathon ends. Special celebrations are planned at the school, said Henry, starting at around 10:30 a.m. stream Boathouse, due to safety concerns about running over the Malahat. From the marina, the crew received a police escort to West Shore Parkway, where they once again took to the road to run to Songhees First Nation. A community run for the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations took place later in the day.

The paddle to Goldstream gave the group a chance to catch up with family and friends. Tsartlip Chief Ivan Wayne Morris had even more reason to take part. His 26-year-old son, Wayne Morris, Jr., committed suicide just under two years ago. “My family is all real enthused to be here and just be a part of it, have

some kind of comfort in what this journey’s all about,” Morris said. He said through his role as Chief he has seen how widespread the problem of suicide in First Nations communities is, and how much need there is for help and healing. “We need to come together to find some solution to address that, because questions are in my mind yet, as to what happened. I have no answers,” Morris said. “The only way I would’ve got some answers is to talk to my son, and I can’t do that. That’s a hard thing for all of us. That’s why we’re taking part.” Some recommended websites for those dealing with mental health problems are yourlifecounts.org and cmha.ca.

Residents of Mulberry Place in North Saanich want more information on plans for a berm on Gardner’s Pond.

North Saanich council to inquire Continued from page 1

That would take the pond to its winter carrying capacity and, Bruce explained, would help keep more water flowing in Chalet Creek in the summer to better protect fish. The presence of fish in Gardner’s Pond and the creek also has some residents concerned. They said that the noise level of frogs in the pond is way down — which leads some to believe that they are being preyed upon by the fish put there by Peninsula Streams.

One resident asked council how they might get a third party ecological study done on the pond to gauge its health. Another resident also said they wanted to put the brakes on any berm project “for good.” North Saanich chief administrative officer Ron Buchan said there has been no application made to the district at this time. If one did come forward, he said it would go through a development permit process, which includes public consultation. Mayor Alice Finall vowed to get more information on the

matter and keep the residents informed. Councillor Ted Daly went further, calling the situation a “fiasco” and asking staff for a report later this month. Coun. Conny McBride said she attended that EAC meeting in February, noting that Peninsula Streams mentioned their plans in passing and that they were for some time “down the line.” Bruce told the News Review that any plans for a berm would not come up before next year, or perhaps 2015. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Town, Rotarians fund new AEDs

Pub ~ Patios ~ Atrium Dining Families ~ Weddings ~ Events

SIDNEy — Three new automated external defibrillators (AEDs) have been purchsed by the Town of Sidney with help from the local Rotary Club. On Thursday, town officials, Rotarians and representatives of the First Open Heart Society, recognized the effort to get the life-saving devices. They will be placed at town hall, the public works yard and the SHOAL Centre.

“We want to publicly say thank you to the Rotary Club of Sidney by the Sea and the First Open Heart Society for their generous contributions and for making this project happen,” said Mayor Larry Cross. “Both organizations graciously came forward and offered to purchase the necessary AEDs after the idea was presented to council by Councillor (Kenny) Podmore.” The AEDs will be part of a pub-

lic safety program launched by the town in response to statistics that indicate approximately 40,000 Canadians suffer a heart attack each year. Communities which have a public safety program have a high survival rate in cardiac arrest patients. The local fire department supports the program and will provide AED training and maintenance along with on-going CPR training. — Town of Sidney

Council, for the most part agreed with the content of the streets and traffic bylaw.

• Council approved the minutes from the committees meeting on June 10 which included the issuance of a development permit to update the facade of the Trafalger Square mall in Brentwood. Plans appear to include new landscaping, signage and an overall facelift of the complex which was built in 1977. • Two recommendations from staff for the placement of Section 57 Notices on Title were approved by council for homes in Central Saanich. One home on West Saanich Road with unauthorized additional dwelling may have a notice on title placed on it along with a property in Brentwood which has non-complying construction. The property owners now have 30 days to comply with the municipality’s requests. • Bylaw 1810, a bylaw to allow temporary use permits for non farm uses on agricultural land was given the first two readings. The bylaw will allow property owners of agricultural land to obtain a temporary use permit through the Alicia Cormier municipality to authorize a use that is not otherwise permitted by the municipal zoning while still allowing council to place conditions on the land use approval to mitigate and avoid any negative impact on the community. The bylaw will be brought a public hearing process which will be set for a later date. • Councillor Alicia Cormier brought two notices of motion to the table during the meeting. The first included three points, two of which were defeated. The third, a request to staff and council liaisons to look at scheduling a meeting or forum between the Tsartlip and Tsawout first nations and the

municipality to discuss issues of mutual interest and benefit was carried unanimously after an amendment. The second notice, a request to have staff apply for the Healthy Communities Building Grant this month, was also carried. “I would have liked to see this come forward from the agricultural community [and Carl Jensen not a member of council],” said Mayor Alastair Bryson, but councillor Carl Jensen made a valid point. “If we seek the funding out, I’m sure we can use it,” he said.

Big fish in a little pond

esidents of Mulberry place in North Saanich have got the right idea — become an ever-present force to ensure they have a say in an issue that affects them directly. They live next to a neat place called Gardner’s Pond, a small body of water that’s home to bulrushes, frogs, herons and many other types of plant and wild life. The pond has a short trail around it, a sign and a small bench to allow local use of the area. You catch more The pond certainly flies with honey seems healthy at first glance but the than with vinegar neighbours want to know for sure — and how plans to build a berm at one end of it could impact the pond and their property. The residents want more information about the project —proposed by the Peninsula Streams Society — so they know exactly what’s going on. They have also indicated they want those plans stopped and have vowed to harangue North Saanich district council over the matter. At this point, however, district council is not the place they need to be and, through some of their inflammatory remarks and reactions, they are running the risk of harming any relationship they might have had with representatives of Peninsula Streams. That is the organization the residents need to work with to learn more. Peninsula Streams volunteers and employees have been working to restore Chalet Creek to its once fish-bearing capacity. And since the creek flows out of the pond, it seems natural they would want to work with landowners in the area to ensure the pond contributes to their goal. It would make sense, then, for residents to learn more from the society directly and not shut them out or use the municipal council to exert undue pressure on them due to their contribution of grant money to the society.

Automobile is a threat to our oceans as well I

am writing to commend the students from Parkland Secondary School on their concerns about what the human race is doing to our oceans, which are now used extensively as a dump for every type of garbage imaginable. Some years ago Rachel Carson published her book Silent Spring depicting what we have done to our land. In 1967 Wesley Marx wrote The Frail Ocean, graphically describing what is being done to our oceans. Both books should be read! One of these young people made mention of oil rigs and ships, both of which have been the cause of major oil spills;

BP in the Gulf, Exxon Valdes and Torrey Canyon. All of these caused millions of dollars of damage to the environment and rightly received huge publicity. But, according to studies by the EPA, Environment Canada and Washington State, these huge disasters do not constitute the greatest danger of oil contamination to our oceans. According to these studies, the major source of contamination comes from another human obsession, the automobile, dripping oil onto our roads where it is washed by rain into the storm drains and subsequently into the oceans. It is estimated that at least 50 per cent of oil

contamination occurs from this course. Applying the methodology of the Washington State Puget Sound study to a dozen of the major cities in Canada it has been determined that oil contamination from these cities is equivalent to 10 Torrey Canyon disasters every year. Technology does exist to significantly reduce this level of contamination but the regulatory authorities seem reluctant to address this problem and municipal authorities will always seem to follow the lead of a past mayor of one of the municipalities in the CRD who expressed great interest in enacting changes to the build-

Barbecue handy prize for contest winner VICTORIA — Catching a 25-pound spring salmon with her dad after a day-long fishing trip was the epitome of happy father-daughter experiences for Cheyenne Duguay. The 16-year-old Saanich Peninsula resident submitted a photo of herself and her dad, Dan, with the prize fish they landed at the mouth of Victoria Harbour after six hours in the boat, for Black Press’ online Father’s Day Barbecue Giveaway. “What a surprise after six hours without a bite, and then finally landing this amazing and very tasty salmon,” she wrote in her submission. Duguay’s entry, one of more than 100 photographic entries received of people with their dads, was selected at random as the winner. She received a Weber charcoal barbecue and bag of charcoal briquettes, courtesy of Capital Iron, along with a $100 gift card to Glenwood Meats in Langford. Check out Black

Get reading at the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre in Sidney Sidney Library recommending great reads SIDNEY — Summer on Vancouver Island is a magical time for kids; there’s no school, the sun shines and there are tons of outdoor games and activities to participate in. But there is another widely popular activity that kids and parents often overlooked when the weather brightens: reading. To keep reading at the top of this season’s ‘to do’ list, the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre (sponsored in part by Times Colonist’s Raise a Reader program) will be launching its first ever book club on July 1 called Rockfish Readers. “The idea is to keep kids’ minds active during their break from school by challenging them to finish at least one book per week over the course of seven weeks,” said Christina Smethurst from the SODC. “And why not read about the ocean? If you ask us, it’s a pretty fascinating topic.” The club (which is free) has three age categories: preschool to kindergarten, six to eight years, and nine to 12 years, each with a list of over 15 oceanrelated fiction and nonfiction titles to choose from that have been recommended by the knowledgeable staff at the Sidney North Saanich Library. In order to keep track of all the great titles they’ve finished, there’s a printable Rockfish Readers Passport available to download from the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre website at www.oceandiscovery.ca. And as if the pure joy of curling up with a good book isn’t enough, there are prizes for completing at least seven books. Tanner’s Books in Sidney will provide gift certificates to the first

Sandy Oliver shows off the new projector that was recently installed at Star Cinema. The cinema now runs all digital films and is expecting new seats to be installed the first week in August.

A whole new Star Star Cinema now fully digital, expecting new seats to be installed this summer

Devon MacKenzie News staff

Sidney’s Star Cinema is now fully digital thanks to a new projector funded by generous donations from the community. The cinema began fundraising efforts last year to raise enough to buy two new digital projectors and seating for the local theatre. The goal of $185,000 was reached earlier this year and the second projector was purchased and installed last month. “Customers have been really happy with the picture,” said Sandy Oliver, owner of the Star. “The projection is so bright, crisp and clear from top to bottom and corner to corner. With the old 35 millimetre this type of picture was never possible so this is really nice.” Now that the cinema has its two new digital projectors up and running (the other was installed last year) and a new five-year lease signed in the building, the last piece of the puzzle is expected to fall into place in August when the new seats are

scheduled be delivered and installed. “We’re expecting to pull out the old seating, paint and install the new seating the first week in August,” said Oliver, who anticipates the theatre will close from Monday, Aug. 5 to Friday, Aug. 9. “Once we open up again we’ll have a big unveiling and grand opening. We’re really looking forward to it,” she added. Oliver said the theatre is expected to be busy through the summer up until the seat installation, with several school groups visiting to see screenings of Monsters University and The National Theatre’s The Audience featuring Helen Mirren. “The first screenings of the National Theatre’s The Audience were near sell-outs so this will be a good opportunity for those who missed it the first time,” said Oliver, adding that tickets ($24 for adults, $20 for seniors) are on sale already at the theatre.

Platinum Blonde makes a stop during their Canadian tour at the Mary Winspear Tuesday, July 2.

Sidney’s going Platinum Blonde SIDNEY — Platinum Blonde is back and hitting the stage at the Mary Winspear Centre, but don’t call it a reunion. In reality, it’s more like the band has simply taken a finger off of the pause button with the release of its new album Now and Never. With four albums that have collectively gone platinum seven times over and garnered multiple Juno Award nominations, it’s easy to wonder what else was there for Platinum Blonde to accomplish. As it turns

out, quite a lot. This summer, Platinum Blonde hits the road headlining numerous summer festivals across Canada to promote their new album including a show at the Mary Winspear Centre on Tuesday, July 2 at 7:30 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.) Tickets, $45, are available though the Mary Winspear Centre box office at www.marywinspear.ca or by calling 250-656-0275. — Submitted
