Runners John Sampson, Kelly Paul and Bernice Smith join supporters of the Heliset Hale Marathon in a long embrace after completing their Island-long journey June 21 at the tribal school on the Tsartlip First Nation. More photos from the conclusion of the marathon can be found on the PNR’s Facebook page.

Marathon offers a message of prevention Steven Heywood News staff

Almost everyone who spoke out during the conclusion of the Heliset Hale Marathon on Friday, June 21, had experienced suicide within their family and hope for a new beginning of openness on the issue in their communities. It was a strong message echoed by many

people who came to the LAU,WELNEW Tribal School at the Tsartlip First Nation, as Kelly Paul, Bernice Smith, John Sampson and their support team ended the 535-kilometer marathon from Port Hardy to the Saanich Peninsula. Hundreds of people met the trio and their team at the Peninsula Co-op on West Saanich Road, joining them for the last leg of their journey. Hundreds more greeted

them at the tribal school, where they ran a victory lap before falling into each others’ arms in a long embrace. While they were happy they had completed the marathon, the runners said they heard stories and hope from people along the way — people who have been touched by suicide in their families or their communities. “All the stories, all the teachings that

were given to us along the way, that only make me stronger and made all of us stronger,” said Paul, who organized the run. “This wasn’t just our journey, this was all of our journey. Every time I ran, I was praying for somebody. Running for somebody. Praying for life.” Please see: Sorrow over and solutions to, page 4

First Nations performers share their history in Sidney’s Beacon Park Photos by Steven Heywood/News staff

Paddle club

In the Friday, June 21 PNR, we reported that the next meeting of Central Saanich council was Monday, July 22. There is in fact a council meeting on that date, but the next meeting of council is scheduled for Tuesday, July 2 at 7 p.m. because municipal hall is closed for the Canada Day holiday.

Celebrating culture and community

Three-time world hoop dancing champion Alex Wells of the Lilwat First Nation, performs a Fancy Dance in Sidney’s Beacon Park pavilion on National Aboriginal Day.

George Taylor, a director with Aboriginal Tourism B.C. and leader of the Le-La-La Dancers was the emcee June 21.

Amber and Char Wells enjoyed Sidney’s Beacon Park on National Aboriginal Day, Friday, June 21.

“Bringing nations together is so important, to share culture with all walks of life.” George Taylor spoke those words on Friday, June 21 — National Aboriginal Day — while emceeing a full day of performances in the pavilion at Sidney’s Beacon Park. He said being able to bring First Nations dance and music to Sidney speaks to the spirit of sharing between communities, which can only broaden people’s understanding of the different cultures. Taylor is a director of Aboriginal Tourism B.C. and the leader of the Le-La-La Dancers out of Saanich. It was during lunch at a local restaurant that he said he saw how perfect Sidney would be to host the National Aboriginal Day event. “I saw a beautiful place and decided to bring the celebration here.” Taylor said the Town of Sidney was enthusiastically on board, so he set about coordinating the various First Nation performers for a trip to the Saanich Peninsula. On stage were dancers and singers from the Esquimalt First Nation, the B.C. Metis Federation, the Kwakwaka’wakw Nation and the Lilwat First Nation from the mainland. A highlight of the afternoon’s performances was three-time world hoop dancing champion Alex Wells from Mount Currie, B.C. (Lilwat). He brought his daughters, Amber and Char, to Sidney as well. Wells said he has been dancing for 24 years and it has brought him many opportunities — being able to make a living and seeing many parts of the world. He has performed at the Calgary Stampede and at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Hoop dancing, he said, goes back to First Nations cultural dances and even storytelling traditions. Each nation, he explained, has its own specific stories and traditions and many of them are about the creation of life, plants and animals. Wells and his daughter Amber performed a Fancy Dance together and Amber did her own hoop dance as she continues to learn the skill. Wells said it keeps him in shape and is happy he can pass on the family tradition to his own children. National Aboriginal Day events in Sidney included a carving demonstration and art show at the Mary Winspear Centre, capped off by an unveiling of an aboriginal sculpture at the Centre, donated by the Winspear family (see related story on page 12).

Sorrow over and solutions to suicide is a shared issue Continued from page 1

Paul’s brother, Isaac, ended his life at age 17, an event that has shaped much of her life since. The Tsartlip First Nation member wanted to do something to raise awareness of the issue in aboriginal communities on Vancouver Island and elsewhere. “It’s a chance to celebrate together,” she said in her address to the crowd. We can’t change yesterday, and we don’t know what’s coming tomorrow, but

(we have) the chance to celebrate each other today.” Paul said she is thankful to have had her parents who loved her, spent time with her and supported her after the suicide of her brother. Bernice Smith who, along with John Sampson, ran alongside Paul said she is grateful to have been invited to take part in this amazing journey. “It’s a beautiful day to celebrate life, love, feelings, friendship, family,

traditions, culture,” she said. “I look at all these children here, we are so blessed and so rich. We have elders here ... we’re so alive and we celebrate that life.” Sampson said it was an emotional, healing time on the road. “We got the word out there, suicide, that has been pushed under the carpet for so long.” He said people spoke up, elders and children, coming up to them in stores and along the highway, expressing

themselves. “The mothers, the grandparents and the children ... this is just the start, this run. The beginning is just to get our message out. It doesn’t stop here.” Tsartlip Chief Wayne Morris, who lost his own son two years ago to suicide, said he is still full of questions as to why. He said both sorrow over loss and a solution to the problem is shared among the people of his community. “Kids have a future and the community has to help them reach that future,” he said. “We have to let the children know there is hope and life is not all bad.” The marathon’s goal was to raise awareness of suicide in First Nations communities and beyond. Organizers say they reached their goal — but it’s only the beginning and hope the conversation continues among their leaders and their community.

Risa Greenwood, Sylvia Morris and Lisa Elliott walked in support of the Heliset Hale Marathon. Elliott said she was doing it to remember her father, who committed suicide.

Remembering those who were lost Steven Heywood News staff

Lisa Elliott walked a portion of the Heliset Hale Marathon route on June 21, with plenty of support from her friends Risa Greenwood and Sylvia Morris. Elliott says her father committed suicide when she was six years old, so the effort of the runners has an emotional meaning for her.

Sisters shave for cancer Cora and Laura Briggs donated their long locks Devon MacKenzie News staff

With a few snips of a pair of scissors, about 20 inches of hair was donated to a wig maker. Sisters Cora and Laura Briggs both took the plunge last week and cut their waist-length hair to donate to The House of Miss Rose in Vancouver — a business that fabricates and donates wigs to cancer patients. Cora, an employee at Resthaven Lodge, started the initiative and was able to not only donate her hair, but also raise money for Cops for Cancer through the cut-a-thon. “We both felt there wasn’t much financially we could give but we both had a ton of hair,” said Cora. “This was a way we could give back to those affected by this horrible disease.” The sisters lost both their father and step-father to the disease and say that as parents and grandparents now, they couldn’t imagine losing a child to cancer. “That’s why we chose to raise funds through the hair cutting for the Cops for Cancer,” explained Cora.

The women also donated their hair to The House of Miss Rose in Vancouver who specialize in creating wigs for cancer patients. “Children who suffer from cancer should be able to go away to camp so they can just enjoy being kids and have a small time not to worry about being sick.” At the time of the cut-a-thon last Monday, the sisters had

Expect delays and gravely road conditions as Central Saanich plans for annual chipseal maintenance next week. Five locations will be chipsealed between Wednesday, July 3 and Friday, July 5. They include:

Clarke Road — cul de sac to Hagan Road, Stelly’s X Road — Walcer Place to Wallace Drive, Holm Road — cul de sac to Stelly’s X Road, Nimmo Road — cul de sac to West Saanich Road and Lawrence Road and Salmon Road to West Saanich Road. Work is scheduled between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. through the three days and public works encourages motorists to take an alternate route.

Street Smarts

I was recently in shopping for groceries when a customer of mine saw me and pulled me aside. You see, the pleasure of living and doing business in a small community is that customers and I will recognize one another and stop to talk. So when I bumped into Shelley, (not her real name but how would you possibly know that) I was surprised where the conversation went. “Headlights” she said. “What’s the deal with people and their headlights”? So we chatted for a little while longer and the story came to light. She drives to work very early in the morning and she couldn’t believe how many cars and trucks out there have either one headlamp out, or the lights are aimed incorrectly. Didn’t really occur to me as I don’t drive much in the evenings and I am still half asleep in the mornings on the way to work. So out I went last night in the rain for dinner. You know

something? She was right. Headlamps and tailamps out all over the place. I couldn’t believe it. At one stage I thought a motorcycle was coming towards me only to have another van with only one headlight. People - check your lamps. Turn your vehicle on and get your better half to do a light check for you. Indicators and license plate lamps included. Apparently it’s a fine from your fine local constabulary, along with many other offences way less important. Also, turn your headlamps on and check them against the garage door. If the lights look like they resemble Marty Feldman, please take them into a shop and get them aligned. All headlights should be working and aligned correctly. I mean, you don’t walk around with one eye closed do you? Well...

Feds abandon science education


any parts of 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 Victoria has 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 fair 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, implying the decision was driven by an ideology suspicious of and hostile to science, rather than the principle of 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 shortsighted 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 public outreach has proved its worth.

Sidney has always been a beautiful little town


would just like to start out by saying that I am not sure what Beacon Avenue Mr. Tanner is talking about being windswept and dangerous to cross (PNR letters, June 21), but I grew up in Sidney and it has always looked very close to what is does now (minus the wide sidewalks, benches, and flower pots).  I lived at Fourth and Ocean streets and I remember as a little girl my brother, sister and myself were allowed to walk to the

Readers respond: Composting odour, airport heritage Smell is getting worse As the representative of several hundred Central Saanich residents, I would like to add our voice to the complaint raised in the June 21 PNR letter to the editor, A smell so bad it can be tasted. The odour situation in the Martindale and Hunt Valley area and on Tanner Ridge has simply become intolerable. Summer has now arrived and hundreds of residents in proximity to the Stanhope compost operation cannot, or do not want to go outdoors and endure the stink. Composting odour emissions beyond the operator’s property boundary are the direct responsibility of the CRD and are a violation of Bylaw 2736. CRD policy and procedures call for escalating enforcement action for continuing offences, and possible licence cancellation when over a year. This has been going on for over two years and nothing has improved ... it is getting worse. Residents may not be aware the CRD has a contract with Stanhope to process food waste. As such they clearly have a vested interest in allowing this operation to continue and not enforcing their own bylaw. Who is looking after the interests of Central Saanich residents? I respectfully suggest it is time to stop food waste composting in close proximity to residents and relocate these operations to more appropriate sites such as

Net pen project starts on the Peninsula Sidney Anglers’ and Tsawout work together to raise 17,000 salmon smolts Devon MacKenzie News staff

A project to raise 17,000 coho salmon smolts on the Saanich Peninsula is well under way.

The Sidney Anglers’ Association along with the Tsawout First Nation installed a net pen at the James Island wharf two weeks ago and will be rearing the coho smolts

Resident Park Caretaker – Contracted Services Request For Proposals The District invites the public to submit offers to perform park caretaking services for two municipally-owned parks (Centennial and Butterfield Park), and to enter into a lease of the on-site residence at each site. These are separate and unique contracts, with a three-year term. Security experience is preferred. All inquiries should be directed to the District offices by calling 250-544-4218. An information package is available upon request. Proposals may be forwarded in confidence to: The District of Central Saanich, Attn: B.

The project is scheduled for another year so hopefully it will go ahead in 2014.” Dalziel added that the hope is the smolts will return to the area to spawn in local waterways like Sandhill Creek and Reay Creek. The Sidney Anglers’ Association is no stranger to projects to enhance local salmon stocks. The association

On May 4, the association welcomed 294 fishers into their derby

which raised around $25,000 (see photo on page 19). “This year’s derby and dinner were a huge, huge success,” said Dalziel. “We sold out the derby entries and the dinner was fantastic with 350 people. It was just a great turnout.”

The derby winner — who walked away $5,000 richer — was Chris Clements who caught a 22.2 pound spring salmon. Close on his heels was Mike Banyard with a 21.3 pound spring and in third place was Bob Hamilton with an 18.1 pound spring. The ladies category winner was Joanne Hodgson with a spring salmon weighing in at 10.4 pounds. “A big thank you should go to all the volunteers who helped out during the derby and the dinner,” said Dalziel. “We couldn’t have done it without them.” For more information on the Sidney Anglers’ Association or the net pen project, visit www. reporter@peninsula

The barbecue will be by donation ($5 minimum) and proceeds will go directly to the Sidney Lions food bank, added Podmore. “This wonderful event is also supported by Slegg Lumber who are supplying the barbecues, tents and staff as well as the Town of Sidney and 100.3 The Q,” said Podmore. On hand to cook and serve will be local dignitaries, volunteers and members of the Beacon Community Services Youth Employment Program. The barbecue runs from 4 to 6 p.m.

For the second year in a row, a community barbecue will replace the traditional community dinner on Canada Day eve, Sunday, June 30. “Up until last year there was always a community dinner but unfortunately there was nobody who could continue to organize the dinner,” explained Kenny Podmore. “Last year I contacted Thrifty Foods with the idea of making a change and have a barbecue and without hesitation they said they would be the main sponsor. I was truly blown away and I sought permission from the Mayor to organize the event and hold it in Beacon Park.”

Three life-saving devices donated to Sidney Automotic External Defibrillators placed at town hall, the public works yard and at the SHOAL Centre Steven Heywood News staff

Thanks to the efforts of Town of Sidney councillor Kenny Podmore and a timely story in the Peninsula News Review, a pair of cash donations helped the municipality buy three life-saving devices. The three new Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) were officially presented to the town on Thursday, June 20. Their purchase was made possible by a cash donation of $2,000 from the First Open Heart Society (FOHS) and $1,000 from the Sidney by the Sea Rotary Club. “Without you, we wouldn’t have done this,� said Podmore in a special ceremony at town hall. The event recognized the donations of both groups, as well as the continued dedication by the Sidney Volunteer Fire Department to train people in the use of the AEDs. Sidney’s deputy fire chief Brett Mikkelson said training in CPR gives a cardiac patient double the survival rate — and a trained AED operator with one nearby gives

donated $1,000 about two weeks ago, which paid for one of the devices. Judy Wiggins, manager of the SHOAL Activity Centre, said they’ve only had one cardiac incident at the centre in her five years there, but an AED on site will be a vital tool as they serve a predominantly senior population. “I hope it’s something we never have to use,� she said. “But if we do, it gives us a lot of confidence.� Acting mayor Steve Price added that it’s a goal of the town to improve safety among the residents of the community. He credited Podmore for his efforts in getting the AEDs. Podmore said he embarked on a quest to get support for the devices due to the town’s large population of seniors. Councillor Tim Chad, also at the event, noted later that there are two AEDs already at Panorama Recreation Centre, where some 65 people (mostly lifeguards) are trained in its use.

Winspear Family donates more art to MWC Medicine Healer unveiled Steven Heywood News staff

For artist Michel Beauvais, being reunited with a sculpture he created in 2001 was a joy. Beauvais, a Mohawk artist, is a member of the Kahnawake Mohawk Band near Montreal, Quebec. He grew up in Ste-Adele, Quebec and now lives in Sechelt, B.C. Beauvais said he was commissioned to create Medicine Healer more than a decade ago. The marble sculpture, which is around five feet tall, was even-

tually purchased by the Winspear family, who in turn has donated it to the Mary Winspear Centre MWC). At a special celebration on June 21, the artwork was revealed at the MWC, attended by Beauvais, town dignitaries, guests and members of the Winspear family. Malcolm Winspear and his wife Jill (third generation Winspears) made the trip to Sidney from San Francisco. Malcolm said the sculpture belonged to his father, Bill, who had a love of First Nations art — especially Inuit

Paterson is the current Moderator of the United Church of Canada. He is the first openly gay person to take the post since the church was formed in 1925 and the first in the world to lead a major Christian denomination. “I’ve often discovered in my own journey that when people are in conversation with

a real person, rather than a theoretical construct that is often associated with fear or rumour or prejudice, then they begin to change,” said Gary. As British Columbia becomes more and more identified as the most secular corner of North America, Paterson offers inspiration for what he calls the “spiritual but not religious” and regular church goers alike. The morning will conclude with lunch, provided on a donation basis in support of Our Place Society. — Submitted

Vera Fossum (nee Morse) September 20, 1917 - May 29, 2013 Mom passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox at the age of 95. Born in Prince Rupert, Mom spent her early years on several North Coast islands before training to become a hairdresser. She lived for a time in Stewart, B.C., before settling in Prince Rupert, marrying and raising her family. Moving to Oona River on Porcher Island, she and Dad fished aboard the ‘Fairweather’. Health issues dictated a change and they patrolled Banks Island for the Department of Fisheries aboard the ‘Bonilla Isle’. After Dad’s death in 1977, Mom lived in Prince Rupert until moving to the Comox Valley in 1987, where she resided until her passing. Predeceased by her parents Andrew and Anna, sisters Ingrid and Florence, brother Ingver (Swede) and husband Chris, she is survived by her son Gerry, granddaughter Ingrid, grandson Luke, daughter Christine, son-in-law Bill, beloved nieces and nephews and many friends. Laughter was always the way with Mom, either instigating it or encouraging it, but mostly living it, usually leaving those around her with an uplifted feeling. She had a great sense of fulfilling what she started and that included life itself, most of which she did in her own time and her own way. Mom was a great listener--she would spend hours listening to us and anyone else that asked of her time. We feel honored to have shared the years we had with her. She is with ‘the crew’ now. No service by request.
