A tender for View Royal’s new fire hall is going ahead amid concerns over the status of certain portions of the funding. Complications are due to some setbacks for Eagle Creek, an intended commercial and residential development on land at the corner of Watkiss Way and Helmcken Road. One million dollars in amenity contributions from the development is earmarked for the fire hall, but delays beyond the control of the town mean it’s unknown when the money will be available. With the approval of a referendum, the town will borrow $5.49 million for the $7.9 million project. A further $1 million is slated to come from the sale of the old fire hall. A request for qualifications earlier in the year yielded a list of 13 contractors interested in submitting tenders. City staff is concerned if the tender is not issued soon, some of these companies may no longer be available. The intention is to put out a call for tenders late this month, with the hopes of awarding the project sometime in October, at the latest. Please see: Council divided on casino, Page A4

Saanich police believe the arrest of an active property thief could put an end to the recent rash of thefts from vehicles. A man, well known to police, was arrested at Tillicum Centre around 5:40 p.m. on June 4, by an officer who identified him earlier that day as a suspect caught on video breaking in to cars. Liam Charles Williams, a 32-year-old Langford resident, faces charges of theft from vehicles and possession of stolen property. Sgt. Steve Eassie said Williams was arrested in late May by Central Saanich police and was released on conditions. Since his release, there was â€œa dramatic spikeâ€? in thefts from vehicles in Saanich. Earlier this month Saanich police said 14 thefts from autos were reported in the first four days of June. A total of 37 were reported in May, which was at least double the number from recent months. Williams is being held until his next court appearance on June 26, where heâ€™ll face a raft of charges from offences in Saanich and Central Saanich. email@example.com

Colwood Crawl faces more truck traffic Kyle Wells News staff
Iseri Rivas Castillo, 3, reads to brother Marlon McCalman, 1, at the Juan de Fuca branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library. The library’s Summer Reading Club starts up on June 27 for children 12 and under. Kyle Wells/News staff
Spend summer with good books GVPL encourages kids to read over the break Kyle Wells News staff
Summer can be a time for outdoor adventures, camping and dips in the local swimming hole, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time to read. Juan de Fuca library Children and Family Literacy Librarian Leah Pearse goes a step further, believing children who read during the summer sharpen their skills and have an easier time at school when it starts up again in the fall. To encourage summertime reading, the Greater Victoria Public Library is taking part in the provincial Kids’ B.C. Summer Reading Club 2013. “It’s all these fun programs that are tied to reading, so the whole experience is fun for the kids,” Pearse said. “There’s always a lot going on. I feel we really kick it up a notch in the summer.” The theme for this year’s club is Up, Up and Away, celebrating books on anything that flies, from superheroes to planes to dinosaurs to birds. Starting on June 27, the last day of school for many students, children 12
and under can swing by any branch of GVPL to pick up a reading record, featuring artwork by Victoria artist Eliska Liska. In the record book, the young participants will write down every day they read for 20 minutes or more. For every seven days of reading, the child will get a small prize, such as a bookmark, a temporary tattoo or a swim pass. One week will also feature a mystery prize. Children who read consistently for the entire seven weeks of the program will receive either a medal or a book prize for their accomplishments.
“It keeps the kids reading, and I think it’s because we make it so fun.” – Leah Pearse
“It’s just amazing to see how excited they are, because it’s a huge accomplishment for some of them,” said Pearse. For younger children, the club can be used for parents who read to or with their children. For flight-related children’s books Pearse recommends Mo Willems’ Today I Will Fly, from his Elephant and Piggie series of books. There are also a number of science-related books on some surpris-
ing animals that fly, such as flying squirrels and flying snakes. Children are welcome to read anything they like for the club though, including fiction, non-fiction, magazines, e-books etc. “It keeps the kids reading, and I think it’s because we make it so fun,” Pearse said. “It’s just another motivation to keep reading.” A whole host of other programs are being offered at the Juan de Fuca branch over the summer, for children, teens and adults alike. One highlight is the puppet workshops, where children get to enjoy puppet shows and make puppets of their own. Puppeteer Tim Gosley will be coming in for the July 23 session. Other programs revolve around superheroes, science, knitting and storytelling. All programs are free and registration is online at gvpl.ca. A tie-in with the Royal B.C. Museum’s Race to the End of the Earth exhibit will also give way to a Choose Your Own Adventure: Antarctic Expedition game. The scavenger hunt style game will see children finding clues throughout the library. Game cards will be posted at every library location from July 11 to August 31. firstname.lastname@example.org
Already busy View Royal roads could get even busier, with the added traffic of trucks hauling sediments from the Esquimalt Graving Dock remediation project. The agencies behind the project, including the federal ministry of public works and government services, are asking the Town of View Royal for its blessing to use the Island Highway as a route to truck dredged material from the dock to Highwest Landfill in Highlands. The Craigflower Bridge replacement cut off the most obvious route to the Trans-Canada Highway. Materials were scheduled to start being trucked June 17. Council members “That is going had concerns over to have such a wear and tear to the road, which was not huge impact on designed for largeour residents and scale use by heavy trucks. commuter traffic. The expectation is It’s just going to be for eight to 10 trucks to make the trip per a gong show.” hour. – David Screech “We’re talking 20,000 truck loads during this project, on a road that was never meant to be a truck route,” said John Rosenberg, director of engineering. Rosenberg said he hopes for a road condition survey and possible mitigation if roads are affected. The town may not have the authority to stop the trucking, but councillors did talk about enforcing a bylaw recently ignored for the Craigflower Bridge project, which disallows using the road as a truck route. There was also talk of imposing a legal axel-load limit to restrict load sizes. Benefits include work being done on reserve lands as a part of the project. “It would have been so much better had we been doing this at a time when we had a Craigflower bridge,” said Mayor Graham Hill. “It’s a huge, huge impact.” “I’m not sure what the answer is but I don’t see how we can be amenable to something like that,” said Coun. David Screech. “That is going to have such a huge impact on our residents and commuter traffic. It’s just going to be a gong show.” Council asked staff to meet with the ministry and proponents to discuss the impact to View Royal with more specific details, and come back to council with the results. The trucks are not expected to release any contaminants en route, but Screech asked for assurances this is accurate. email@example.com

Council divided on casino funds Continued from Page A1
Council agreed to move forward with a split contract, including a Part A which will be awarded to the lowest tender and a Part B, which establishes the terms of the agreement and can be delayed or cancelled if the money isn’t in place. “The tender documents themselves will reinforce that if we do go to tender and the funding is not in place, we will not enter into Contract B,” said CAO Kim Anema. “At that date, we will have an opportunity to review the situation.” If the money from Eagle Creek is not in place, there is potential to take funds from other areas, such as from a projected $786,000 of available funds from casino revenue in 2014. The rest would come from reserves and surpluses. With the already over-budget Craigflower Bridge project and the potential for other surprise expenses, some members of council were not sold on the idea of scraping the bottom of the town’s coffers, should the amenity money not be available. “I’m really hesitant to commit the casino (dollars). I don’t even think that should be in the picture, for that amount,” Coun.
Eagle Creek setbacks The Eagle Creek project is stalled after items of archeological interest were found on the property, said Coun. John Rogers, chair of the planning and development committee. The developer, Omicron, had to go through the appropriate process to determine if the lands are a site of archeological interest. Complicating matters is the provincial government, which recently lost a case in Oak Bay and was held liable for costs awarded to a homeowner for an assessment. As a result, the government is reassessing policies and put a freeze on archeological assessments on private property developments. Interim measures are expected to be in place by the end of this week, a ministry spokesperson said, allowing assessments to move forward.
John Rogers said. “I would be very, very nervous if available funding assumes we must commit our casino.” Coun. Heidi Rast understands the concern, but feels moving ahead with the tender will put council in a better position to make decisions. “That’s the big unknown, what the pricing is. So if it does come back under it gives much more flexibility,” Rast said. “Let’s hope this works, we get a bit of luck, and it comes back in our favour. Until that information is provided, it will lead to a much more detailed discussion later on.” Speaking to the possibility of the old fire hall selling for less than $1 million, Anema did not rule out the possibility
of increasing taxes, in a worst case scenario, and only with the approval of council. “If the funds aren’t available from the sale of the fire hall, the funds have to be made available otherwise,” Anema said. “I can’t commit that it will be done on the basis of existing resources, it may well end up being what we don’t really want to see happen, is some form of tax increase. But all the other alternatives will be explored first.” The situation is now wait and see. If the tenders come in and the money is not in place, the project could be delayed or cancelled, or council can approve other ways to cover the cost. If the money is in place, the project would proceed as planned. email@example.com

Feds abandon science education Many parts of the Greater Victoria offer a view of the large white dome atop of Observatory Hill in Saanich. At the end of the summer, that’s about the only way people will get to take in the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. The National Research Council reluctantly admitted last week that it plans to close the Centre of the Universe interpretive centre and end all public outreach connected with astronomy and astrophysics at the attached Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics. This will likely be the first time in the facility’s nearly 100 year history the public has been shut out of this local national historic site. Greater Victorian’s have a lot to be proud of with the observatory – for a brief moment, the Plaskett telescope was the largest in the world, and it is a site that continues to make significant contributions to precision technology and our understanding of the universe. The scientific research arm of the site, the NRC Herzberg Institute, isn’t closing and will continue to employ more than 100 people. But the federal government’s mandate to reorganize the NRC as an “industry-focused” organization certainly doesn’t inspire confidence. Closing the Centre of the Universe is being framed as a cost saving measure under a regime of restricted budgets, and not a consequence of the NRC’s new approach. It’s not a stretch to say that the federal government has decided to abandon public education linked to its federal science. Closing the Centre of the Universe will save the NRC about $230,000 of its $900 million budget, making the decision driven by an ideology suspicious of and hostile to science, rather than saving a few public tax dollars. If the government wants “industry-focused” research and advanced technology, closing the door of research centres to young people is short sighted and counterproductive. Out of the thousands of kids that visit the Centre of the Universe each year, if only a handful are inspired to enter engineering, math and the sciences, the centre has proved its worth.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Pedestrian overpass needed at Spencer I have lived on Florence Lake Road for 20 years. I first learned of the Spencer Road closure when I read the Gazette recently. I am concerned that the closure of the crosswalk will inconvenience many people. I used the intersection daily myself, and while I do not mind taking a different route in my vehicle, it seems the many people who used the crosswalk will now have difficulty getting to where they want to go in a timely fashion. For those who walk or bike that crosswalk is important. I saw students walking to school using that crosswalk. I am astounded that the closure would happen without first building a pedestrian overpass. That is absolutely necessary and practical, and should be a priority. Investment in infrastructure that promotes healthy activities like walking and cycling is crucial to ensuring a healthy community. I hope Langford will show some leadership and get
this done, whether that means tapping the province for funds or making this a priority for the municipal budget. It is simply necessary. Susan Loney Langford
Drug charge accused should be in jail Re: Media photo-op just not enough (Our View, June 19) I fully agree with your editorial comment on the arrest of ‘top-level’ suspected drug traffickers. This should have been an ‘incarceration arrest’ – with the men detained in jail. It would appear there were sufficient grounds to arrest. Given the supposed reputation of these two suspects, the laying of one serious, indictable offence charge would have been enough to hold them in custody. People have a right to apply for bail. A defence lawyer and Crown Counsel argue the merits of that before a judge to determine whether or not
bail should be granted, and under what conditions. If the police wish to continue their investigation, they can certainly do so, then apply to the Crown to lay further charges. I think people in the community are right to be concerned in this case. John C. Smith Esquimalt

President of Victoria Bowmen Archery Club, Al Wills takes aim at a target in View Royal.
Arrows fly in View Royal competition Victoria Bowmen Archery hosted a World Archery Round this past weekend, June 21 and 22. The men shot at four distances spanning 90, 70, 50 and 30 metres. The archers shot 36 arrows at each distance totalling 144. Six men competed in the event in three classes: bow hunter open, compound and recurve. On Sunday, Sergey Bolutenko shot 144 arrows from one distance in two 72-arrow rounds. He was the only competitor in the event shooting in the senior division in the recurve class. “Shooting 144 arrows is fairly gruelling,” said Al Wills, president of Victoria Bowmen Archery. “Every time you draw the string back it’s 40 pounds.” At a standard archery event each competitor generally shoots between 60 to 90 arrows. The View Royal competition was a registered round with all scores registered in Archery Canada’s ranking system. email@example.com

Kids learn art of creative process Daniel Palmer News staff
Imaginary friends, toys with elaborate back stories and innate curiosity mean creative writing is generally second-nature to most children. For the past two years, Paisley Aiken and her team of volunteers have introduced elementary and middle school kids to the world of creative writing with a program called Story Studio. “One of the most powerful aspects of the program is the ownership the kids feel over their story,” Aiken says. Over a three-day period, each child comes up with a character and story, which then gets published and returned to them by Story Studio a few weeks later.
www.vicnews.com • A13
“The first day we go in, we have the kids come up with a character, and we do a lot of interactive activities around each step,” Aiken says. “With the younger kids, we’ll use clay and we’ll do some drama to help them get ideas to develop their character, then we’ll set up sensory stations and get kids to describe their settings.” The non-profit program relies on private donations and the help of sponsors. “We bind their stories into little books and they get to bring it home,” Aiken says. “The kids are thrilled … suddenly, they see they’re an author.” To learn more visit storystudio.ca or call 250-388-4418. firstname.lastname@example.org

Sunglasses, clip-ons and tinted lenses are used to block out the glare of bright sunlight. They can also filter out ultra-violet (UV) rays. These rays are invisible to the eye, yet potentially harmful. UV is thought to be mostly absorbed at the corneal level. This is the cause of “snow blindness,” an extremely painful condition. However, UV exposure is also a risk factor for increasing the formation of cataracts and the development of macular degeneration. Misconceptions exist regarding sunglass selection and protection. It is true that you can’t tell how much UV a pair of sunglasses is blocking by the color or the density of tint. Blocking UV light does not have to be difficult or expensive. Even a basic pair of sunglasses that claims to block 100% of UV almost certainly does. The advantage of some premium products lies in the quality of their optics and the ability to enhance the vision of the wearer. To get the best advice about sunglasses talk to an optometrist.
