Seniors feeling Pride But Victoria’s aging queer population fears move to long-term care

R E N O VAT I O N S

Ruth Simkin holds a photo of the love of her life, “Lela,” who died in the 1960s. At age 70, and with compounding disabilities, Simkin is one of countless lesbians in the community who refuses to move into a care facility. She’s lived her whole life as an ‘out-of-the-closet advocate,’ and will leave her future care up to friends in her community.

When Linda Swanton had a heart attack, she realized senior care might be a challenge for her. At 60, she had lived her life “in and out of the closet” as a lesbian, but when her partner was not allowed to come in the elevator with her at the emergency room, she knew the issues she may Danielle Pope be facing were just beginning. Reporting “At the end of the day, it doesn’t

really matter what rights you have on paper – it comes down to what your doctor’s beliefs are at that time and, right there, you don’t have the strength to fight it,” says Swanton, now 64. “We’re a community that’s spent our whole lives fighting to be together.” Four years ago, she created a group called South Island Pride specifically to address the issues that seniors living in the queer community face as they age. The group has since turned its focus toward queer youth needs since Swanton left the helm last year. Yet as Pride Week celebrates Victoria’s rainbow community from

July 1 to 7, seniors living “out” with pride is still a largely undiscussed issue. “People in this community are simply terrified of aging, and what it would mean to have to go into a (care) home, or not be allowed to live their lifestyles,” Swanton says. “They would rather do anything than have to give up what they’ve worked so hard to achieve. There are suicides that go unreported over this issue.” Ruth Simkin is an outspoken lesbian author and retired physician who understands these issues well.

A pro-amalgamation group has unveiled what it hopes will be a referendum question on the next municipal ballot in 2014. Amalgamation Yes spokesman John Vickers stressed the group is not proposing a specific model of amalgamation for the Capital Region, but simply wants to gauge public support for a formal provincial study. “The question we are proposing to municipalities is this: ‘Are you in favour of reducing the number of municipalities in the CRD through amalgamation?’” he said. Over the next four to six months, organizers will contact mayors and councils in all 13 Capital Region municipalities with the proposed question, Vickers added. “We also have a committee that will focus on going out and letting people know what we’re doing. It all comes down to a full-court press to see how people feel about the current state of regional governance,” he said. For more information, visit amalgamationyes.ca. dpalmer@vicnews.com

The Rankin File: six months in

Rock Bay cleanup proceeding

A conversation with Victoria’s rookie Member of Parliament Daniel Palmer News staff

Since joining the House of Commons last December, Victoria MP Murray Rankin has become one of the NDP’s go-to critics, drawing on decades of legal expertise in areas ranging from aboriginal treaty negotiations and environment protection to national security. The News sat down with Rankin to find out what he’s learned in his first six months representing the people of Victoria, Oak Bay and a little of Saanich. Q. Your current portfolio (national revenue critic) isn’t exactly in your areas of expertise. What have you been able to accomplish in that role? “I’m on the most senior committee in Ottawa, the finance committee. Most people think it’s just boring tax stuff, but then we’ve had this tax haven issue. And the harassment of environmental organizations by this government to see if they’re abusing their charitable status, I never thought that would come about. Thirdly, the service cuts that the (Canada Revenue Agency) is making are affecting seniors in this community. I’m advocating for them. And lastly, I’m trying to figure out how to harness the Income Tax Act to provide incentives to go to a lower carbon economy.” Q. What have you learned about the business of Ottawa since becoming an MP? “There was a time when I was very critical

of the parliamentary system. I was a believer in the U.S. checks and balances system. I don’t believe that at all anymore. Look at the (U.S.) Senate that can hold up the President with filibusters … it’s just gridlock. And I never anticipated that, frankly, in my respect for the American system. You kind of take Parliament for granted. I’m just really excited about the potential of Parliament.” Q. Do you have any disappointments about your experiences so far? “I wish it wasn’t such a hyper-partisan environment. Even at the committee level, there’s still a friendliness and an ability to work together, but others tell me it’s much less of a co-operative place because the Conservatives have put their parliamentary secretaries for each of their departments at the relevant committees. Well, that makes it very hard for us to come up with independent recommendations. And when we do, they invariably vote them down, even when they tell you in candour it’s a good idea but the Prime Minister’s Office won’t let them support it. I’m disappointed in that. I wish we could flex the muscles of committees more.” Q. Why haven’t you followed Saanich-Gulf Island MP Elizabeth May’s lead and disclosed your expenses? “Well first of all, my expenses as a new MP, having only been sworn in on Dec. 8, haven’t yet been approved by the House of Commons. I wrote the Freedom of Information law here in B.C. and I’ve done work for the federal

Victoria MP Murray Rankin, here at Pioneer Park in the heart of the riding, marked his first six months in office in June. He has already garnered national attention for his performances at Question Period in Parliament and for drawing attention to staff cuts inside the Canada Revenue Agency. privacy commissioner. I want to do this, but we also want structural change. Then people can compare apples to apples and see who’s spending what. Hopefully we can do that this fall.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

One of Murray Rankin’s first tasks as Victoria MP was to make sure Transport Canada was still planning to clean up the contaminated soil in Rock Bay. Coal and gas production took place on the shoreline from the 1860s to the 1950s, leaving highly toxic sediment in the soil and seabed below. Two phases of cleanup have already taken place, but the final phase was delayed due to higher than expected contamination levels, said Sau Sau Liu, Transport Canada spokeswoman. “We are taking more time to study and plan the remaining cleanup,” she said. Rankin said he’s been assured by Transport Minister Denis Lebel that funding for the project is in place. “Rock Bay could be a real gem. Contaminated sites can be very tricky and time-consuming, but thank goodness the money is there to do it,” Rankin said. Phase 3 of the cleanup should be complete by the end of 2016, Liu said.

Metal recycling business courts CRD for biosolids site Company breaks silence about negotiations Daniel Palmer News staff

As if the Capital Region’s sewage treatment plans needed another wild card. Schnitzer Steel, which operates scrap metal yard Steel Pacific Recycling on Victoria’s upper harbour, revealed last week it was willing to vacate half of its leased heavy industrial property to make way for the Capital Regional District’s biosolids processing plant. The company said it wanted to offer an alternative solution to the

controversy surrounding properties at Esquimalt’s light industrial park on Viewfield Road and at Saanich’s Hartland landfill for the biosolids plant. A separate wastewater treatment facility is slated for McLoughlin Point. In the 11th-hour announcement, Schnitzer said efficiencies in its recycling process mean 1.6 hectares of its 3.2 ha property at 307 David St. are up for grabs, if the CRD offers the right price. Property owner Fred Berman is on board with the plan, but negotiations with the CRD already fell apart once when neither party could agree on a purchase price, said Michael Geoghegan, media consultant for Schnitzer. Complicating the proposal is the need to remediate the soil,

which has been used for industrial purposes for more than a century. Instead of purchasing the land, the CRD could take out a 50-year lease to avoid clean-up costs at a comparable overall cost to the Viewfield site, Geoghegan said. “We thought we’d approach

Geoghegan suggested the CRD could also take advantage of a rebuilt dock at the David Street facility to barge biosolids waste instead of using trucks through urban areas. The assessed value of the David Street property is about $1.5 million, according to City of Victoria documents. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Esq. biosolids site on hold Daniel Palmer News staff

Capital Regional District directors could pull the plug on plans for an Esquimalt sewage sludge plant today (July 3), thanks to overwhelming public opposition. CRD directors are considering an interim report compiled from public surveys on the siting of its biosolids facility, part of the region’s $783-million secondary sewage treatment project. Two locations have been proposed for the plant – Hartland landfill in Saanich and Viewfield Road in Esquimalt. The CRD paid $17 mil-

lion for the Viewfield site in March. “This is only an interim report. There are two recommendations that the board will review, but there is considerable opposition to Viewfield as a site,” said Andy Orr, CRD spokesman. Nearly all respondents living in Esquimalt, Vic West and Burnside Gorge neighbourhoods opposed a biosolids plant at Viewfield Road, Orr said. Directors also have the option of delaying a decision until a final report on the public consultation is compiled. Orr said the CRD will likely have to sell the

property if it’s not chosen for the sewage facility. “I don’t think the CRD has another use for the property,” he said. Vic West resident Justine Semmens said she hopes CRD directors put an end to what has been a bitter fight thus far. “I’m curious to see what’s going to happen.

OUR VIEW

New era possible for deadly road The placing of concrete dividers on the Malahat, in areas prone to crashes, is a good step in the right direction, from a safety perspective and one of highway continuity, even as driver common sense remains paramount. While it is critical that emergency crews be able to quickly reach drivers involved in collisions on the road, it is also imperative that at least one lane of the road remains open to keep traffic moving. At this time of the year, more families will be hitting the road for summer holidays, and many of those will be travelling up or down the Malahat to reach their destinations. There have been many calls over the years to do something to address the potential for problems and tragedy on this hilly, windy section of Highway 1 between Goldstream Park and Mill Bay. Some of those suggestions, or demands, had a snowball’s chance in Haiti of being followed through on, like the bridge and tunnel ideas. But the one that always seemed to make the most sense – a better system of dividers – has finally been acted upon by the Ministry of Transportation. This is the same department that spent hundreds of millions of dollars on the Inland Island Highway from Parksville to Courtenay some years back, then extended it to Campbell River, so people could rumble along at 120 kilometres per hour or more between areas that produce far less traffic than the Malahat on a daily basis. But those were the days when government had more money to throw around and such megaprojects could be justified with the number of full-time jobs that were created. Things are different today, and finding solutions that cost less and are more efficient uses of funds are the norm. That said, there is and will always be the matter of driver behaviour on a road that has sustained many tragic crashes – some due to conditions, but virtually all traceable back to some level of driver error. As on any road, we need to practise safe driving when tackling the Malahat and not let added dividers lull us into a false sense of security. Driving for the conditions is the mantra for this tricky, but very scenic and beautiful stretch of highway – that and always maintaining complete control of your vehicle. Thanks for the extra safety features, but we’ll still be keeping our eyes wide open and our heads up.

New barriers on Malahat not the only solution

per cent. During those same years, average provincial economic growth was only 4.1 per cent, meaning that under the supposedly tight-fisted, tax-cutting Campbell, government continued to grow to more than 20 per cent of gross domestic product. Clark has indicated several times since her surprise election win that she intends to make government smaller. That’s the difference between her “core review” of government programs and the one conducted by Campbell in the painful first years of his mandate. This is why I mentioned last week that one of the more significant instructions given to Clark’s cabinet ministers was to examine turning the Liquor Distribution Branch into a separate corporation with its own board of directors. That in itself may slightly increases the size of government. But it could be a preliminary step to selling the whole thing off and reducing the government’s role to taxing and regulating booze sales. You can imagine how that would go over with the NDP, with former liquor store union boss George Heyman among the loudest opposition MLAs. This is the kind of change that should be debated in public, not by press release. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

VICTORIA NEWS - Wednesday, July 3, 2013

LETTERS CRD committee ignores the smell of reality I am appalled by the blatant incongruity of critical thinking and oversight in planning to even consider placing a biosolids facility on Viewfield Road. This location is low in elevation amidst residential populations and schools. A biosolids processing facility feasibly will contain chimney stack ventilation, which will cast particulate high into the atmosphere and then blow into Vic West, downtown Victoria and Esquimalt, including prestigious

Rockheights and the Swallows Landing adjacent the ocean. Anaerobic slurry stores which require oxygen for their rapid decomposition, causing offensive odours, will be abundant. Cold air falls, but then warm molecules comprised of fecal odour would become abundant within the atmosphere. More notable is the lack of foresight in terms of planning for this plant. I have resided in eight other provinces in

Canada, all of which have their solids facilities on the outskirts of cities, with the exception of one in Winnipeg. When the wind blows the wrong way, one shuts up the windows a kilometre away. I have yet to come across political leaders within the CRD who make sound decisions for the demographics within their ridings. Instead they choose to ignore the comments and concerns. You, sirs and madams, should be ashamed. For

the past five years your insolence and ignorance to the truth has allowed you to perseverate in continuing to plan for this facility in the Esquimalt Industrial Park, and this has contributed to the elevation in the facility’s expense. Attempting to ignore the facts and actualities, with hopes that over time the controversy surrounding this decision will become absolved, stinks. Jamie Firman Esquimalt

Readers respond: Sewage consultation, B.C. Ferries, derelict boats Here is a proposal to help in the decision for the biosolids and sewage treatment facilities. Mandate the provincial and federal ministers of finance to the sit down with a Ouija board, with which the two politicians could spell out possible sites. Words such as “Albert Head” would quickly and clearly be spelled upon the board. A second turn might spell out another possible location: “Legislative Buildings,” a waterfront location known for its toxic environment and source of pollution. The wizards of finance could then request the board to reveal the location of the biosolids facility. Qualified observers would see the words “boondoggle” or “nonsense” revealed. The wisdom of the board might then be used to advise the Capital Regional District board to upgrade storm drains, fix the Malahat and build express bus and bike lanes, not spend on unnecessary sewage

treatment and biosolids facilities. The CRD should use the same method for consultation and not a $50,000 advertising campaign with biased open houses to sway public opinion. Finally, the Ouija board could instruct the CRD to follow the expert advice of marine biologists and find ways to reduce future debts passed onto the taxpayer. By following this procedure, the CRD can blame the Ouija board for decisions, not each other. Art Bickerton Saanich

Support for ferries needs to be analyzed B.C. Ferries boss Mike Corrigan recently proclaimed a “modest profit” of $15.5 million for the 2013 fiscal year. He indicated that aggressive cost containment helped post these numbers. Revenues came mainly from fares, which increased by 4.1 per cent in April 2012 and by the same amount in April 2013. Similar fare increases are planned over the next two years, despite

passenger counts being down 1.2 per cent from the previous year. People seem to be rejecting this continual increasing of fares, so B.C. Ferries is once again dependant on B.C. taxpayers for its modest profits. The province supported the ferry system this past year with payments totalling $237 million. If I had a debt of $10,000 and someone gave me a cheque for $15,000, wouldn’t I also show a modest profit? The province needs to get on with its core review program, especially for B.C. Ferries, as financial stability is sadly warranted for this outof-control corporation. Martin Battle Victoria

She practised family medicine for 25 years in the community as an “out-of-the-closet” advocate. Now 70, Simkin has compounding disabilities, but refuses to go into a care facility. The one time she tried, she got as far as signing the lease, but overwhelming anxiety and an understanding son helped her back out. “I just knew, I absolutely couldn’t live there,” she says. “I like being in my home and I’m just more comfortable living out. Lying is a terrible thing.” It’s a situation Swanton has seen play out before. “This is largely what happens – friends looking after friends, because there are precious few other options in this city,” she says. “And it isn’t always the care staff people are worried about; it’s the people who will become your neighbours, how those folks feel about living beside ‘a queer’ and what that can mean.” South Island Pride held a meeting series in 2010 to discuss options for elderly care. More than 40 people of all backgrounds attended the first session, yet with a sense of panic, people wanted answers, not discussion. With none available, no one turned up to the following meetings. “The people who we see needing care now are people who, in their 20s and 30s, went through some pretty heavy stuff,” Swanton says. “They were the people on the front lines of ‘coming out,’ and whether or not our world has changed, they have not. They know the violence and brutality they’ve faced, and receiving care for them means going back into the closet.” The News contacted over a dozen senior care facilities in the region, including independent living, assisted living and home care, and the responses were identical: no staff had ever heard of housing any clients from the gay or lesbian community. This isn’t so surprising,

Splash soloists introduced Two Vancouver Island teens will play the concert of their lives as the featured young soloists for the Victoria Symphony Splash. Victoria’s Eric Manning, 17, and Campbell River’s Carter Johnson, 16, both pianists, will perform in front of an expected 45,000 people on a barge in the Inner Harbour Aug. 4. Symphony maestra and music director Tania Miller introduced the duo at the Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour Hotel Thursday. Miller said she’s humbled and

amazed by how many people travel to Victoria for Canada’s most popular symphony concert. Manning, a Lighthouse Christian Academy grad, won B.C.’s Provincial Music Festival in 2010 and performed for Lt.-Gov. Steven Point’s farewell at Government House last year. The event is also a chance to donate to the Victoria Symphony, and this year organizers are introducing mobile giving for the first time. For more information, visit victoriasymphony.ca/splash.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

TAKE NOTICE THAT A PUBLIC HEARING will be held on Monday, July 8, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. Archie Browning Sports Centre, 1151 Esquimalt Road, Esquimalt, B.C., to allow the Public to make representations to the Municipal Council respecting matters contained in the following amending bylaw:

a. b. c. d. e. f.

CORPORATION OF THE TOWNSHIP OF ESQUIMALT

Design Guidelines: Development consistent with conditions identified in the document entitled “Design Guidelines – McLoughlin Point Wastewater Treatment Plant” prepared by CitySpaces Consulting Ltd. (Revised May 2013), a copy of which is attached to the Official Community Plan, in particular those that are not attainable through normal development permit authority. Upgrades to Water/ Firefighting Protection: Consistently designed and themed upgrades to the fire hydrants and support equipment parts, to coincide with waterworks upgrades necessary for the treatment facility, such hydrants and other necessary above-ground components being distinct from the rest of the Township, unique to the proponent, including recognition of provision by the proponent further to this bylaw. Hydro Power Grid System: Provision of underground conduit and other appurtenances to facilitate undergrounding of all utilities, including electrical

infrastructure upgrades, so as to minimize impacts on surrounding community. Road Upgrades: Reinstatement of all roads (including but not limited to paved areas, sidewalks, boulevards) affected by establishment of wastewater treatment plant of this density of use, to a condition equal to or better than existed before to construction. Lyall Street Enhancement: Given the proponent’s recognition that Lyall Street and surrounding residents will receive a disproportionate share of the direct impacts during construction of the project, and the identification of Lyall Street as a “commuter, recreational, cycling route” in the Township’s Official Community Plan, the proponent has agreed to make a significant financial contribution toward the planning and infrastructure of an upgraded pathway and bikeway system, approximate value of $950,000, including for upgrades and connection to the West Bay Walkway. Education and Interpretive Centre: Provision of a dedicated conference room on-site for students and the public to learn about wastewater treatment and management, made available at no charge to and for use by schools, government bodies, non-profit organizations and individuals as requested during normal hours of operation. Public Access and Public Walkway: Design of building and development of site to incorporate public accessible trails. Trail connection to West Bay should access through abutting Department of National Defence lands.

In addition this Bylaw includes the requested 34 parking spaces and height of 15m. AND FURTHERMORE TAKE NOTICE that copies of the proposed Bylaw and relevant background documents may be inspected at the offices of Development Services, Municipal Hall, 1229 Esquimalt Road, Esquimalt, B.C., anytime between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. until July 3rd, 2013, and anytime between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. between July 3rd and July 8th, 2013 [excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Statutory Holidays].

Anika Todd’s first road bike was a Christmas gift from her exboyfriend two years ago. The 23-year-old Victoria resident has come a long way since then, winning silver in the elite pro women’s time trial at the national cycling championships in St. George’s, Que., on June 20. Todd, of Pro City Cycles, is one of two local bike shop employees to surprise at the nationals, as Russ Hay’s bike mechanic Curtis Dearden, 29, won the men’s time trial the same day. Dearden’s story is equally impressive. The former UBC rower has been cycling for years, having previously attended the nationals. Todd started racing in 2013. “My ex-boyfriend wanted to go professional but I wasn’t a cyclist at the time and didn’t ride that bike he gave me very often,” Todd says. That bike is a not-so-shabby Cervelo Soloist (the same Canadian-made bikes that Ryder Hesjedal’s team rides) and for a long time it sat around mostly, unused until last summer when Todd finally decided to take it out for a casual “coffee shop ride” with the Tripleshot Cycling club. One ride turned into more and it was clear she showed promise on the bike, keeping pace with Tripleshot’s A group. And it turns out you never know who you’re going to meet when you go for a group ride in Victoria. For Todd, it was happenstance that Peter Lawless is also a key member of Tripleshot. The lawyer and cycling fanatic is also the coach of three-time Paralympic wheelchair gold-medalist Michelle Stillwell. He suggested Todd might be good in a race. “Frankly (Todd) needed new people to crush,’ Lawless said. “The Tripleshot A group is a pretty competitive and pretty fast bunch of folks who really mean business (or as much business as you can mean at 6 a.m. on a weekday) and Todd was keeping up just fine.” As time went on she wasn’t just a participant but an animator of the ride.

Travis Paterson/News staff

Silver medal winning national time trial (TT) cyclist Anika Todd works at Pro City Cycles in Vic West, and races for the shop’s Pro City race team. “it was easy math that she start racing.” he said. Historically, Todd has always been a strong athlete. During high school in Germany (dad was stationed there with the Canadian Forces) Todd was on the varsity track, cross country and wrestling teams and credits her wrestling coach for her building her discipline and mental toughness.

Todd leads the pack during the Caleb Pike hill climb in the Victoria Cycling League on Wednesday night. The VCL helped Todd jump from casual rider to silver at the national championships within a year. “I think thats what has made me excel at cycling. Some of it is obviously fitness and natural ability but ultimately it comes down to who will suffer more and who will push their body further. Who will be aggressive and not give up,” she said. All that aside, Todd only started racing six months ago. During the same stretch of time she also finished her honours degree at UVic in biology, where she researched retinal development on a cellular and molecular

level. Academically, she’s thinking medical school or post-graduate studies. On the bike, it’s a different approach. “I don’t think (my cycling progress) too much. Lawless sends me a four-week training schedule for a race and I follow it. I just ride the bike, he makes the decisions,” she added, smiling. So far it’s led to multiple successes for Todd, including a win in her first time trial event, Race the Ridge in Maple Ridge on April 27. As a newbie in Category 3 and 4, and on a road bike, Todd won the Race the Ridge TT by 10 minutes. She since accumulated enough points for the elite Cat. 1-2 in B.C. and about two months ago received word the national cycling championships would be a reality. The rolling 27-kilometre TT route outside of St. George’s played to her strengths as she finished 20 seconds back of champion Joelle Numainville, a previous winner from Laval, Que. “Because you’re on you’re own in the time trial you don’t really know if you’re doing well overall but you kind of know you’re riding well,” Todd said. One tipoff was catching and passing three riders ahead of her, as each TT start is staggered a minute apart. The next was keeping Olympic track cycling bronze medalist Gillian Carleton in her sights. “I finished and then waited anxiously. One after another crossed the line and my time still stood.” Next up for Todd is B.C. Superweek, a collaboration of nine different races around the Lower Mainland July 5 to 14, including the Gastown Grand Prix.

n 19th annual Victoria News Best of the City Awards n June 27 n The Wellesley Retirement Residence

Best of the City results highlight businesses, communities

Voted

Best City

The readers have spoken and determined this year’s Best of the City winners in dozens of different categories. 19 Representatives from voters’ No. 1 choices for such things as best restaurant for Thai food (Baan Thai) and Japanese food (Japanese Village), best used book store (Russell Books), best flower shop (Brown’s the Florist), best wine store (Everything Wine) were among those welcomed at The Wellesley retirement community on Thursday (June 27), as Black Press unveiled the annual community awards. Visitors enjoyed a continental breakfast provided by staff of The Wellesley, one of two retirement complexes operated in Victoria by Retirement Concepts. A number of businesses, community service providers and even an individual – morning man Ed Bain of 100.3 The Q radio, who doubles as weather man on CHEK-TV – took top spot in multiple categories. Some merchants added to longstanding titles atop their respective categories, such as Thrifty Foods for best grocery store, and Ming’s Restaurant, which captured a 10th straight win for best Chinese food. For these Greater Victoria icons and all of the top three finishers in this year’s Best of the City awards, the results proved they are among the best reasons to live in the Capital Region. Best of the City was delivered in select copies of the June 28 Victoria News. of the
