New care facility gets its license Sidney All Care created after church project failed Devon MacKenzie News staff

A new private care facility in Sidney has been given the green light from the Vancouver Island Health Authority and will be hosting a grand opening and open house next weekend. Sidney All Care on Mills Road (the old Bethel Church facility) was formally issued its operating license this week from VIHA, along with already having operating permits in place from the Town of Sidney. Administrator Blake Mooney said he is looking forward to bringing the public into the facility during the open house they can see what “It will be nice so it’s all about. “It will be nice for for the public to the public to be able be able to see the to see the facility and learn about the scope facility.” of care we’ll be provid– Blake Mooney ing here,” he said of the event they have planned for July 6. Mooney and his business partner Casey Van Dongen purchased the property last summer for $11.2 million and have been working to get the facility ready for occupation since. The centre, which was built in 2009 under the name Bethel Community Baptist Church Care Centre, was the source of much conflict when investors, many of them seniors and members of the Bethel Church congregation, lost millions when the project fell through. Mooney, a registered nurse who was born and raised on the Saanich Peninsula, said he always dreamed of opening a care facility in the area. Please see: Eighty-eight bed facility, page 3

person teams of amateur boat builders. Fea said that events usually gets between 4,000 and 5,000 people watching and cheering when the boats tip and their riders take a swim.

When it comes to honouring Canada, the Peninsula Celebrations Society has got it all together. The fun begins Sunday night, June 30 and continues all day on Canada Day Monday, July 1. Society president Sheilah Fea says their volunteers are ready to go, as are the many sponsor businesses and organizations that make the annual Sidney Days such a success. “It’s looking good,” Fea said before the festivities began. The Canada Day parade down Beacon Avenue has 75 floats, performers and community groups signed up, said Fea. It’s not as big as last year (81 floats) but Fea said their goal is to keep the parade to about an hour to ensure families have the energy to take in many more events. “It’s really amazing, people start lining up for the parade at 8:30 or 9 in the morning. That’s a long day for families already.” Fea said she was putting the finishing touches on a few events this week — including confirmation of a military helicopter fly-by over Iroqouis Park at around 1 p.m. Monday. “It will get down to around 500 feet over the park,” Fea said. That’s also where the Sidney File photo Days Family Fun Fair events Everyone loves a parade and Sidney has a great one on Canada Day Monday. take place from noon to 4 p.m. The coast guard will be on hand to New this year, she continued, Road closures for Canada Day help ensure the event goes off without is a variety of kids’ games — a hitch. from a hamster ball you can ride Sidney residents should be aware of road “Some of the boat builders are getting in, to bean bag rocket launchclosures for the July 1 Canada Day parade. too good,” Fea said. “People do look for ers provided by Games To You.

Affordable housing at risk says architect

Peninsula News in brief

Architect for McDonald Park Estates calls development delay a “rezoning purgatory”

Steven Heywood News staff

Lt-Gov. in Sidney on June 30

SIDNEY — The Honourable Judith Guichon, Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia will be attending the Citizenship Reaffirmation Ceremony during the Opening Celebrations of Sidney Days. The event takes place on June 30 beginning at 7 p.m. in the Beacon Park Pavilion. “We are so honoured and sincerely grateful that the Lieutenant Governor has taken the time out of her busy schedule to visit Sidney and be a part of this important community event. I cannot think of a more fitting guest to have in attendance, as we celebrate the Town and our Country during Canada Day”, commented Mayor Larry Cross. —Town of Sidney

An architect with a firm looking to build 54 condominium units on McDonald Park Road in North Saanich says if the district continues on it current path, it will never get any affordable housing built. Kyle Shick of Finlayson Bonet Architecture slammed North Saanich council on June 19, particularly Mayor Alice Finall and councillors he calls “obstructionist,” for what he says is an unreasonable amount of time taken to process their plans for three multi-storey buildings next to Parkland Secondary School. He has appeared twice before council this month, levelling charges of interference, intimidation and collusion against certain councillors and municipal staff in relation to what

A proposal for three condo buildings near Parkland Secondary School in North Saanich has been held up in the approvals process. he feels are delays in approving the project. Calling North Saanich a “rezoning purgatory,” Shick said it took two months to get the first response from staff after he submitted plans for the

condos on April 30, 2012. While he did say the application did progress, after about a year the district planner he was working with indicated they were close to a completed development agreement. That

changed on June 7 of this year, he said, when the district’s Director of Planning, Mark Brodrick told him they wanted a new agreement as council was finishing its housing consultation and new amenities bylaw. “The amenities contribution was originally going to be $400,000,” he said. “The new one came back at over $1.2 million. If you guys adopt that, you’ll never have an affordable development in North Saanich ever again.” Finall says the McDonald Park Estates proposal — as are others seeking increased housing density in the district — is on hold. “His application is waiting, upon council’s direction, for staff to complete the amenity policy,” Finall said.

Now, he and his team at Sidney All Care said they are looking forward to opening their doors to the public and filling rooms in the 88-bed, private facility which will provide a range of care. “There are definitely benefits to a private facility,” noted Terra Munro, the marketing coordinator for the facility. “We have services that a publicly funded facility might not, for instance, respite care which can essentially be booked on demand. If someone has a loved one who they care for and they need to go away unexpectedly, we can offer short-term respite care for that individual.” Munro also added that the facility is physically wellequipped compared to others, with private showers in most of the rooms, a guest suite that can be booked for visiting family members and all the facility’s food made on-site. “The location is also ideal

Smiles of students a highlight of a long career Shirley Galloway retires after more than three decades with Saanich School District Devon MacKenzie News staff

After 34 years with the Saanich School District and 32 years at Brentwood Elementary, Shirley Galloway is hanging up her many hats. Galloway, who works in the office of the school, is known to many as the cement of Brentwood Elementary. Her last day at the school is today (Friday) and a retirement tea was held for her Monday afternoon along with an assembly that included the whole student body on Tuesday morning. “She is loved so much by everybody in the school,” said Coral Fast, Galloway’s daughter who also works in the school as an education assistant. “She’s been in the community for so long and so many students and co-workers have been through the school since she’s worked there. She’ll really be missed.” Galloway began her time with the Saanich School District in 1979 at Royal Oak School. She was part of an initiative called the Chance

Galloway also spent time at Cordova Bay Elementary school before moving on to Brentwood Elementary in 1981. She has worked there ever since. “The reason I’ve stayed here as long as I have is the kids,” Gallo-

way said. “I’m really going to miss them and their smiles. The best feeling is when you know one of them is having a bad day and just needs someone to talk to or lean on. When you see that smile it’s amazing.” One of the most rewarding parts of her job she said, is seeing stu-

Extreme changes in North Saanich Continued from page 3

Outside of a project planned for 9395 East Saanich Rd., Finall said the Capital Regional District (CRD) is asking that North Saanich change its Regional Growth Strategy to reflect plans to allow more urban development. “Their application is for a multifamily unit not currently permitted in our official community plan (OCP) and zoning bylaws,” the mayor continued. “Those are extreme changes.” Finall said there has been a “crush” of similar applications in the district and taking that into account, she doesn’t think Shick’s wait has been a long one. Compounding the situation, she said, is the fact the municipality’s planning department of four saw two people resign this month. Finall took issue with Shick’s comments and accusations, especially his remark that there’s a “culture of

fear” among some staff members. “I’m just not sure what he means. The department is under extra stress and workload.” An increase in development applications — an estimated 387 units are currently being proposed in the district — plus a constant stream of requests by council represents “a significant impact on staff time,” Finall said. Shick appeared again at the June 24 council meeting, asking for a timeline on his application process. Finall said the director of planning is on vacation until early July and the one person left in the department is not up to speed on Shick’s proposal. Chief administrative officer Rob Buchan said staff are working on the application but there are areas of disagreement between both sides. “Staff will be seeking the direction of council on a variety of issues,” he said.

n celebrating Canada this weekend in Sidney, people will be having a great time in a community full of energy, with plenty to offer families, visitors and longtime residents alike. It is a big party. After all, it’s Canada’s 146th birthday. We can look forward to some patriotic events during Sidney Days this Sunday and Monday —such as flag-waving, wearing of the nation’s colours, singing the national anthem and re-affirming one’s allegiance to the country. Then, we shoot off a bunch of fireworks We can be glad in a colourful we live somewhere display that, while an exclusively where we have the not Canadian tradition, ability to help lead announces another year in this great change country. Along the way, we hope that people will think on what it means to be Canadian and the role our communities play in keeping the country strong. A big part of that is our citizens’ willingness to stand up and be counted on matters of local, provincial, national and even international importance. We can be glad we live somewhere where we have the ability to help lead change — in both large and small areas. It could be said that many of us spend our time worrying over so-called First World problems, but we do live in a country that isn’t plagued by violence, unrest or overwhelming disaster. Yes, Canada has its problems and we can all find at least one thing to lament. But at least we can have capacity to do something about it. Whether its voting in elections, volunteering time to help others or setting a positive example to those around you, you are living what it means to be Canadian. There is a certain level of freedom in this country, enabling us to seek change, to seek a better life — or even to do little and simply enjoy what Canada has to offer. That’s yet another choice that we have the freedom to make. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@peninsulanewsreview.com or fax 250-656-5526.

In Victoria, the Northern Junk and Janion buildings sat vacant for years before the city was able to force the owner to sell the downtown properties. The Residential Tenancy Act doesn’t provide much help either and tenants’ advocates in government are few and far between, prompting Godfrey to wonder, “Where do residents turn when it comes to housing that is being allowed to rot down?” In recent weeks, most of the region has been consumed with deciding the fate of its dung and the rest seems content to view housing creation as a race to build the greatest number of luxury homes. While vacancy rates continue to plateau far below the Canadian average and more and more residents struggle to find a home, I’m left wondering how long it will take before we pull our heads out of our sewage and look up.

Admirably, she wants to set an example for the rest of the world and change the tar-sands area into a Research Centre for the development of renewable and green fuel resources. No more pipe line talks for Western Canada or Eastern Canada. You have to hand it to her, Alison is one smart woman. The tar sands extracting industry creates greenhouse gas emission, air and water pollution, the effect of which will be felt by our children, grandchildren and all aquatic life.

These bylaw changes do not in the month. “There’s no evidence of any mean that the developer can build councillor having a change of just yet. There are still both the heart in the matter,” Browne con- development and building permits to obtain, requiring more tinued. He noted that councillors Celia public consultation and council Stock, Elsie McMurphy and Finall approvals.

Lunn has strong words for the mayor

News staff

Gary Lunn, a former MP, current owner of 9395 East Saanich Rd. and partner in Sanpen Properties Inc., says the mayor has to accept that she no longer holds a majority on North Saanich council and move on. Lunn said the details of his small lot residential housing project have been a matter of public record for some time. He said they have spoken with council many times and have been clear in their intent to offer employees of the Sidney/North Saanich industrial area preference to purchase the Gary Lunn homes. “This is nothing new,” he said. “It has been one delay after another delay.” Lunn said Mayor Alice Finall has shown a lack of respect “to the people of North Saanich” and has used up staff and council’s time in the process. “You need to accept you didn’t win a majority of this council. You need to let it go.”

Finall said she brought the matter back to council due to what she called new information about the 9395 East Saanich Rd. proposal — a preferred purchase option being offered by the developer to a local employers group and North Saanich firefighters.

“This deal is an improvement to the project, “ Finall said, “but it raises new issues.” Those, she said, include how the purchase option will work and how it might apply to future affordable or workforce housing policies in the district.

She added any discussion council might have on the matter won’t slow the project down. Both McMurphy and Stock, who have long supported Finall in opposing the project and calling for a comprehensive local housing policy, agreed the purchase option was a good idea. Yet, since the project is a departure for the community, they want to get it right and take more time to look at it again. Browne said none of this is a reason to renegotiate the plan and called for an immediate vote on reratifying the bylaws. That sparked another debate, with Coun. Daly delivering the strongest words. “It’s turned into an opportunity for another friggin’ delay,” he said. Coun. McBride said she doesn’t see anything sinister about the plan for a preferred purchase option, adding council needs to move on. Again, council voted 4-3 to reaffirm the bylaw changes. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Mother, daughter arrested in Capital Region credit card scam

gRad 2013

Daniel Palmer News staff

A mother and daughter duo have been charged with a slew of credit card frauds across the Capital Region. Vancouver Island RCMP say Christine Mauro, 46 and Karen Mauro, 63, conducted hundreds of illegal transactions across Vancouver Island totalling over $90,000 between January 2011 to March 2012. Many of the frauds had never

been reported to police and involved extensive followup with banks, merchants and other agencies, said Insp. John Ibbotson, officer in charge of the RCMP’s federal serious and organized crime operations and financial integrity. “Credit cards were altered and unauthorized credit card data was used to purchase high end electronics, furniture, merchandise and gift cards,” Ibbotson said. “These arrests and charges represent a significant success

and disruption of ongoing financial crimes.” The Mauros, who police say are part of a four-person prolific crime group, face 27 combined charges of fraud under $5,000 and use of credit card data. The women appeared in Victoria courts June 13 and are now under house arrest pending a trial date. Most of the transaction occurred within the City of Victoria and southern Island, Ibbotson said.

David Cox will take a months-long twowheeled journey cycling the Island tip to tip in a bid to end Multiple Sclerosis. The 68-year-old will ride to Port Hardy and back for the end MS cause and embark from his Triangle Mountain home on his third unsupported Van Isle End to End to end MS early this morning. “I get to start off going down a hill,” the Colwood man said indicating his steep driveway. “Really, the idea was to start at home and end at home.” At first the thenTorontonian was just “looking for a good organized bike ride”. The next year it got personal, his niece was diagnosed with MS. Within six months she was confined to a wheelchair. Cox organized a dynamic team of RBC fundraising riders and now is in his 19th year of MS bike rides. “I’m going to raise money — that’s gravy,” he said. “It keeps the whole concept that this disease does not have a cure and make people aware of it.” When he retired to B.C. in 2005, Cox continued to ride fundraisers and raise awareness, spending three years on the board for the MS Society’s South and Central Island chapter. In 2009, he started the Island-wide ride that became bi-annual after an injury in 2010. The idea is to put his own “blood, sweat and tears” into the effort. “There’s a lot of competing charities out there looking for dollars,” he explained. So Cox packed his 40 pounds of baggage on his 28-pound bike and headed out of Colwood to make his way to Port Hardy and back to Shawnigan in time for the Cowichan Valley

David Cox starts to pack the 40 pounds of gear he expects to haul up and down Vancouver Island in his bid to raise funds for the MS Society. Grape Escape MS ride that starts July 6. “My objective is to always get back for that,” he said. “I go to the (Shawnigan Lake) school, set up my tent and I’m ready to go in the morning.” He’ll do the two-day tour then head home to the West Shore. The primary goal is awareness and respect, he feels is lacking in day-to-day life, illustrated by a visit to his niece Leslie a few months ago.

“I was astounded at the rudeness of people who made her stop, made her get out of the way,” he said of his wheelchair-bound relative. “It’s important for people to recognize there’s folks out there who don’t have the quality of life we have. If they want to make a donation, all the better.” He’s nearing his current fundraising goal of $3,000. “If it looks like it

will be exceeded, I bump it up again,” he explained. “Seems better to have an objective that is harder to obtain than one that is easily exceeded.” To donate visit www. msbiketours.ca and use the “find a cyclist or team” option.

B.C. throne speech renews election vows Tom Fletcher Black Press

Sidney residents and local dignitaries attended the unveiling of an Ice Bear mural on the side of the Telus building on Resthaven Avenue. The mural has been undergoing restoration work by Ice Bear (Chris Johnson), the original artist, all month. His work was recognized on June 21, National Aboriginal Day.

Volunteers planters sought for Newman Farm CENTRAL SAANICH — Ed Johnson, society chairman of The Farmlands Trust (FLT), and farmer Ian Paul will plough the field at historic Newman Farm in Central Saanich this month. Last weekend, the pair got the field ready for a planting party this Saturday, June 29. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., volunteers will assist with planting squash and pumpkins on the farm.

FLT is seeking people to come out to the farm and help dig, plant the seeds and protect them for the growing season ahead. Anyone interested is welcome to come out and help, as well as enjoy refreshments that will be provided. FLT notes that people should wear sturdy footwear while on the farm. Spades or shovels, and a wheelbarrow for use during the work party would also be most

appreciated. Also remember to bring gloves. The Farmlands Trust (Greater Victoria) Society continues its working relationship with the District of Central Saanich in the stewardship, preservation and management of the historic Newman Farm property in Central Saanich. Directions to Newman Farm: Feel free to meet FLT

members and farmers and park near the Newman Farm access gate on Central Saanich Road, a half-kilometer north of Mount Newton Cross Road — look for the signs. At the request of the District of Central Saanich, please do not enter or park at the entrance leading to the Newman Farm heritage house gate entry (off Newman Road and Old Veyaness). — Submitted by FLT

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark sat in the visitor seats of the B.C. legislature Wednesday as her government’s throne speech renewed the B.C. Liberal commitments from the May election. Lt. Governor Judith Guichon read a brief speech to open a rare summer session of the legislature, reiterating government commitments for four consecutive balanced budgets and a freeze on carbon tax and most personal income tax rates. Clark attended before returning to duties as premier and a campaign for a seat in Westside-Kelowna in a byelection set for July 10. “Waiting to take a seat makes it a little bit harder to get down to business as quickly as I’d like, but I’m not letting that get in the way,” Clark told reporters later. “We called the legislature back before I had a seat because we want to get this balanced budget passed.” NDP house leader John Horgan called it a “bogus” budget that aims to hold health care spending below one per cent growth, a target not seen since the Social Credit restraint program of the early 1980s. The legislature is to sit until July 25. The first order of business Wednesday was the unanimous election of veteran Richmond East B.C. Liberal MLA Linda Reid as speaker of the legislature. Coquitlam-Burke Mountain B.C. Liberal MLA Doug Horne was elected deputy speaker and Burnaby-Edmonds NDP MLA Raj Chouhan is assistant deputy speaker.
