School board opposes 10-year contract Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

School District 72’s board of education is speaking out against the provincial government’s push for a decade long contract with B.C. teachers. The BC Teachers Federation (BCTF) and its employer, the BC Public School Employers’ Association were working towards a new two- to three-year deal up until the May provincial election. But Premier Christy Clark made a promise during her election campaign that the province would implement a 10-year contract with teachers to achieve labour peace in classrooms. However, teachers say that’s too long to be locked in to a contract. At the board of education meeting June 25, School District 72 trustees agreed and voted to send a letter, written by board chair Michele Babchuk to Education Minister Peter Fassbender, opposing the changes.

Shovels in the ground soon on $4.045 million project Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Drivers can expect traffic delays in and around the St. Ann’s block downtown starting early next week. The city’s downtown revitalization project, which includes an overhaul of the city’s aging underground infrastructure as well as landscaping improvements above ground to create a more walkable, pedestrian-friendly space, is expected to get underway as early as Monday. The project broke ground at a ceremony Wednesday morning near the Alder and Beech street intersection. Jason Hartley, the city’s capital works manager, said the estimated $4.045 million project will be done in sections at two separate times. “The current plan sees the project delivered in two phases and that’s done intentionally to attempt to minimize traffic disruptions,” Hartley said. Construction, which will be done by Upland Excavating Ltd. of Campbell River, will be broken up into a summer and a winter phase. Because the project involves a full re-construction of the sewer, water, and storm drainage systems, the streets within the St. Ann’s block will have to be torn up and then re-surfaced. During summer construction, which is targeted to be done between

Andy Adams get the first shovels in the dirt during a ground breaking ceremony Wednesday afternoon to kick off the city’s St. Ann’s block downtown revitalization project.

July and August, St. Ann’s Road will be closed to traffic in both directions between Alder and Shoppers Row (the street alongside Chances Casino). Detours will be via Alder Street and 10th Avenue. Also during summer construction, Dubeau Street (behind CIBC) will be closed to all traffic from St. Ann’s Road to Beech Street. Detours will be via St. Ann’s Road and Beech Street. With both road closures, local traffic trying to access nearby businesses will be allowed through. During the fall con-

struction, road closures will be in effect from September to October. Alder Street will be closed from Beech Street to 10th Avenue. Traffic will be detoured via Beech and Dubeau streets. Alder will also be closed between Beech and St. Ann’s, with detours via St. Ann’s and Alder (north). Finally, Beech Street will be closed to traffic between Alder and Dubeau streets with detours via the Dubeau alley and Alder. Mayor Walter Jakeway admitted the project, while important to Campbell River, will have an impact on nearby

businesses. “We’re very aware that this underground work will be an inconvenience to our neighbourhood this summer,” Jakeway. “Traffic is going to be interrupted and there will be surprises when you’re re-building an aging infrastructure like we have here that dates up to 60-years-old. The key is take the time, do it right and be flexible. This is an exciting time for Campbell River and this is a big step forward.” The city’s project is aimed at complimenting construction on Seymour Pacific’s new headquarters building in

the same area. While city council had identified downtown revitalization as a strategic priority some years ago, with construction already underway on Seymour Pacific’s building, the perfect opportunity presented itself.

Coun. Andy Adams said he was thankful the current council and city staff have embraced downtown revitalization and have worked to get things moving. “I like to say that it’s a downtown triangle. We’ve got Rose Harbour that’s just nearing completion (on Dogwood Street), we have this project that’s just kicking off and we have Berwick over near the waterfront,” Adams said. “If we fill in that triangle – we’ve already got other major developments in city hall for major development permits and people exploring and taking a look at what else can happen in the downtown core.” Coun. Mary Storry, who has the public works portfolio, said she’s happy to see the area returning to its former glory. “I’m so excited to see it have new life again, this whole area, have new life. The exciting part for me is going to be the outdoor park areas that are going to create a place where people want to sit, come from work, have your lunch, relax.” Storry recalled. For

Colleen Evans, president of the Chamber of Commerce, the project shows that Campbell River is open for business development and growth and promotes a healthy economy. “It’s an indicator of an exciting time for Campbell River,” Evans said. “Clearly this is a time of growth and redevelopment. Today’s announcement (comes) on the heels of the John Hart Dam project, Berwick, the new North Island Hospitals project, the LNG initiative (at the former mill site); it just feels like every week there’s a new announcement.” But while downtown was celebrating, Jackway was quick to point out that other areas of the city will not be neglected. “There are other areas of our city to the north and to the south that still need infrastructure,” Jakeway said. “Don’t think that because it’s happening here that you’re going to be forgotten. There’s a list of about $35 million in infrastructure that needs to be done and it’s just going to take some time.”

School board writes to provincial government Continued from A1

A composite image partially shows what the view of Maurelle Island will be like following logging which will take place over the next two years.

Visual impacts to be minimal, say logging supporters Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The government and a forestry lobby group are firing back at tourist operators who are unhappy with logging operations on Maurelle Island. “I would argue the tourism community has got much more than lip service. They’ve been heard and accommodated,” said Dwight Yochim, executive director of the Truck Loggers Association. The Discovery Islands Marine Tourism Group, a lobby group of 15 tourism-related businesses, has expressed its disappointment that logging will proceed on Maurelle Island, located just off

the northeast coast of Quadra Island. “All we ever asked for was a temporary halt to logging in three critical corridors until all the local stakeholders could get together and work out a land use plan,” said spokesman Ralph Keller, who operates a kayaking business on Quadra. “It’s only fair we get more than lip service when it comes to forestry management.” The Discovery Islands group point out they annually contribute millions of dollars to the local economy and deserve to be heard by government. Keller added they’re not against logging, but they’re concerned logging in the lower

Okisollo Channel will spoil the views enjoyed by locals and visiting tourists. However, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Forests and BC Timber Sales, contends that concerns raised by the Discovery Islands Group were heard. “In this instance, BC Timber Sales had numerous meetings with the Discovery Islands Marine Tourism Group and made accommodations to address their concerns,” said Vivian Thomas, communications director for the Ministry of Forests, L ands and Natural Resource Operations. According to Thomas, visual impac ts are expected to be minimal

and one of the conditions in the recently awarded timber sale licence is there will be no barging of logs during the summer when tourist operations are at their peak. There will, however, be falling when the weather allows. JWM Forestry won the auction to log two areas on Maurelle. The timber sale licence is expected to generate $4.85 million in stumpage revenue for the province and another $4 million for the local economy. “ T h e gove r n m e nt believes that both tourism and forestry can coexist in the Discovery Islands and is working with the tourism, forestry, small business and First Nations interest in

the area to address the concerns being raised,” said Thomas in an e-mail to the Mirror. Yochim also weighed in after reading Wednesday’s front page story (Logging to proceed in spite of opposition). “Campbell River’s tourism industry has grown over the last 20 years alongside active logging and harvested blocks,” he said. “I think that’s good news because it means tourism and logging can thrive side-by-side in the Georgia Strait.” He added that cutblock boundaries were adjusted to minimize visual impacts from the waterline and logging will take place over two years during the offtourism months.

“Although we understand the inefficiencies of continually negotiating two-year contracts, we also have some significant concerns around issues arising from contracts that are a decade in length, especially if there is a possibility of those contract being imposed instead of working through an agreed upon collective bargaining process,” Babchuk wrote on behalf of the board. “In School District 72, we place great value on the relationship we have built with our educational partners and are highly concerned about the continued government/labour unrest in this sector.” The most recent tussle between the two sides occurred last school year after the teachers’ contract had expired. Teachers started out the 2011/2012 school year with minimal job action – refraining from writing formal report cards and supervising students on the playground at lunch and recess. From there, the job action escalated to a three-day strike in early March during which time teachers worked “stick-it” lines in front of local schools, passing out informational pamphlets and marching downtown in a show of solidarity. The strike was halted by the province’s Bill 22 which legislated teachers back to work. In late June, 2012 teachers reluctantly accepted a new contract which expired last weekend, on June 30. Just 52 per cent of B.C.’s 21,044 teachers cast a ballot in the vote to ratify the agreement which then-Education Minister George Abbott said had no concessions (contract stripping) and included improvements to most teachers’ benefits. Teachers, on the the other hand, weren’t satisfied with the contract because it didn’t address class size and composition or provide what they deemed a reasonable salary increase for B.C. teachers.

Strathcona Park horse debate settled Paul ruDan

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

After seven years, a high-end resort will finally be allowed to conduct horse tours into Strathcona Provincial Park. In 2006, Tofino-based Clayoquot Wilderness Resort applied to the province to take paying guests on guided horse tours along the Bedwell Creek trail. Since then, they’ve

battled the Friends of Strathcona Park which opposed the issuing of a permit to allow horses. But on June 26, the BC Supreme Court ruled against the Friends and upheld the permit issued by the Ministry of the Environment and supported by BC Parks. “The decision to issue a park use permit is a matter of discretion for the minister based on questions of mixed fact and law,” wrote Justice

Jon Sigurdson in his decision. “The minister’s committee clearly had expertise to deal with this application. It appears to have considered all submissions, including, importantly, the Master Plan that received significant public input before it was amended in 2010.” The resort’s application was also supported by the nearby Ahousaht First Nation, Strathcona Park Lodge and the Wilderness Tourism Asso-

ciation. However, the Friends of Strathcona expressed concern about using horses, public access and commercial use of the park. “The Friends contend that a high-impact commercial horse operation doesn’t belong in a fragile rain forest valley in the park,” wrote Karl Stevenson of Royston on the Friends’ website. Another member of the group, Marlene Smith, doesn’t expect the

Friends to continue the legal challenge, but the group is considering its options. “This is just one arrow in our quiver and it missed the mark. We have others,” she said during a phone interview Thursday. “It’s a unique trail – the only opportunity to hike from one side of the island to the other.” A representative of the the resort was not available for comment at deadline.

Area D water rate hikes put off for now Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Strathcona Regional District Director Brenda Leigh convinced other directors to hold off on a substantial water rate increase for Area D. Regional district staff were looking for direction from the board at its meeting last week as to how to deal with rates which are set to go up by 21 per cent this year. The City of Campbell River supplies bulk treated water to the northern portion of Area D (Crawford Road area) and notified the regional district that rates were going up to $0.80 per cubic metre when the water supply agreement expired in May 2012. The new rate took effect Jan. 1, 2013. Tom Yates, acting chief

administrative officer for the Strathcona Regional District, pointed out that the regional board of directors approved a financial plan that projects a water user rate revenue of $351,721 based on a 21 per cent increase over the 2012 rates and if directors do not officially approve of increasing the rates, there will be a deficit. “The current user rates will not generate sufficient revenue to cover the costs of providing the service in 2013,” Yates said in a report to the board. “Unless the Area D water rates bylaw is amended, staff will issue bills to users of the water system at the current bylaw rates ($232 minimum residential charge), which will incur a revenue shortfall from

Just Gas Ltd. “THE GAS EXPERTS”

2013 financial plan targets and may result in a 2013 deficit in the range of $62,000.” Leigh said she would prefer to wait until after Aug. 1 to make a decision since Area D residents have until Dec. 31 of this year to pay the fees without incurring interest charges. “The issue of a potential deficit is unknown right now because of a board motion that said a professional mediator will be appointed,” Leigh said. “It’s premature to set the rates and charges now when we can do it after August 1 when we know what the situation is.” Leigh was referring to talks between the regional district and the city that have been on going for more than

a year and a half and are expected to continue over the next few months. The city has said the water rate is fair and will bring Area D customers in line with the city’s fee structure for all water customers outside its boundaries. The city’s rates are established based on the funding required to cover the annual operating and maintenance costs for the water system, as well as upgrading and replacing the various components of the water system (pipes, pumps, treatment facilities, reservoirs, etc.) as the water system ages. Wate rates are higher for customers located outside the city limits to reflect the higher cost of delivering water to the outer limits of the city’s

water system and compensate for water charges that customers within city boundaries pay, but that the city is unable to collect from customers outside city limits. Leigh has said Area D is the victim of an unfair system that’s taxing residents without representation. “Area D is currently subject to an unfair system where our taxpayers are not represented on any water committee,” Leigh said. “We are not told what we are being asked to pay for, except that the proposed increases are city policy. This is the anti-thesis of democracy. This is unfair.” Directors in the end voted to defer further consideration of the matter until after August 1.

Drive Smart BC Collector Licence Plates

2X14

It’s show and shine season and the carefully maintained and restored older vehicles are out for our appreciation. I watched one vehicle from the early 50’s pass by me the other day and I noticed that it was equipped with a center brake light and angel eyes in the headlights. It also sported a collector licence plate and that got me to thinking, were either of the two “enhancements” that I noticed allowed on a collector plated vehicle?

TYEE CHEV

My understanding of vehicles that displayed collector licence plates was not extensive, but I knew that they were for the pleasure use of motorcycles, cars and light trucks and very few modifications from stock were allowed. To satisfy my curiosity, I visited ICBC’s website. I found that I was right about the use restrictions, but the list of allowable updates was a lot longer than I would have thought. Safety upgrades such as disc brakes, stainless steel brake lines, seat belts and a theft alarm system are allowed. Obvious ride height changes, non-era correct paint, sound system and colour anodized engine dress up kits are not. For a more extensive information on what is and isn’t allowed on a collector plated vehicle, contact ICBC’s Specialty Licensing Department. Making non-approved modifications after obtaining collector licence plates or mis-using them for business or to and from work may result in loss of collector status and the privileges that these licence plates bring. This gentleman will have to remove the angel eyes for more reasons than one. They are not era correct and are not in compliance with the lighting regulations for that vehicle.

Our View

Boost in security is coming News of a terrorism plot involving the B.C. legislature and pressure cookers filled with nails has sent shock waves through the province, and nowhere is the news hitting with more impact than in Victoria, where the iconic Parliament We say: B.C. Buildings draw tourists year round. A Canada Day event there on Monday residents can no (the event the terrorists were targeting) longer say it can’t attracted about 40,000 people to the legislative lawns. happen here B.C. residents may say “it can’t happen here,” but it can and it does. People in Boston likely felt much the same about the Boston Marathon, before the bombing incident this year, which apparently inspired the

B.C. couple alleged to be at the centre of this plot. Whether inspired by religion, politics or just mischief, acts of terror are on the rise in North America. Since the infamous acts of Sept. 11, 2001, a host of plots have been uncovered and several attacks, such as the Boston one, have actually been carried out. Three people were killed and 170 injured in Boston. This has led to a dramatic increase in security at the borders and airports, in particular, but also at large public events such as the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. The original budget for security at the Olympics was projected at $175 million. The actual cost was $900 million. Events such as Canada Day celebrations have not been

seen as likely targets for acts of terror, but they do attract large crowds. The Canada Day event in Cloverdale, the main Surrey event, has attracted as many as 100,000 people. The downtown Vancouver event is also a large one. Security has usually been pretty straightforward at such events. But it seems likely it will have to be boosted in the future, whether to ensure that wannabe terrorists have no chance to get near an event, or drunken partiers are barred from the grounds. We may not want more security, but as citizens we appreciate extra efforts to make us safe. -Black Press

Recycling is not about making a profit I wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Bradley, I could not believe it when I heard he was told we can’t profit from recycling the glass. I thought the point of recycling was to make a difference to the planet not to make money! I know we can’t just keep paying out the taxpayers money but we do already pay for recycling right? The average household in Campbell River produces 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of garbage each month. By finding ways to lower this number we can reduce our environmental impact and stretch the life of our over-burdened landfill. There was also a comment in the media,that there is too many articles like bottle caps, etc., in the bins, I believe that would be an education issue. If we don’t recycle, the next park you want to spend millions on will be a converted landfill. Please reconsider this idea.

Clark resumes the Campbell Liberals’ arrogance

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

Call it the Beach Blanket Budget. Despite having to campaign once again to win a seat in a byelection, Premier Christy Clark has ordered the legislature to sit without her through most of July to pass the budget that was tabled before the election. This rare summer session ensures a couple of things. First, there will be less time for real financial results to contradict the rosy predictions made by Finance Minister Mike de Jong in February. Second, it ensures that there will be minimum public attention paid to the deliberations, as people focus on their summer vacations and put the business of running the province aside again. B.C. Liberal house leader Mike de Jong

insists there has been no decision made on whether the legislature will sit again in the fall. The standard schedule, put in place under former premier Gordon Campbell, calls for MLAs to assemble in October and November, to consider legislation, after a spring devoted to the budget and ministry spending. This was a serious reform that went along with four-year scheduled elections. But Campbell soon abandoned this noble approach, with fall sessions dwindling to a few days to deal with urgent issues or disappearing altogether. I expected Clark to reverse that after she led the party to victory in May and consigned the Campbell era to the history books. Open, accountable government and all that.

So why the summer session? I’m inclined to agree with NDP house leader John Horgan, who meets privately with de Jong in his role of government house leader to thrash out schedules. Here’s Horgan’s message to Clark and her government as he emerged from the latest meeting: “You ran on a platform that you claimed you were ready to implement. And what we’re getting instead is, ‘let’s jam ’em in here while the media’s on holidays, while people are at the beach thinking about other things. We’ll pass our bogus budget and then we’ll see you in February’.” Is the budget accurate, or “bogus,” or somewhere in between? They’re always projections, so that can’t be determined

until next year. But the proposal to keep the increase in overall spending to less than two per cent, with nearly all the increase going to health and education, is difficult to accept. During his time, Campbell topped the Fraser Institute’s ranking of most fiscally responsible premiers, limiting spending growth to 4.4 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.

Turf the Robron project; we need roads more than fake grass Re: The Three Amigos and city council, June 27 Depending on how you look at an entire cast of characters, you can assign labels as a group or as individuals. That is not always complimentary but so far, so good. Spendthrifts, or intransigents, fiscally irresponsible, or as Amigos (which sometimes they are not). Our mayor and council are individuals but they need to act as a group to reach consensus and that has not always been easy. I voted for Mayor Jakeway because he promised zero tax increases. I voted for a couple of experienced council-

lors because it seemed like a good idea to have continuity – someone to show the ropes, who had contacts and knowledge of ongoing issues in our city. Some of those councillors took this election as carte blanche to impose what they want on Campbell River because we elected them. We did elect them, but I thought it was with the understanding that council would listen, then speak and act on our behalf; and they would make the utmost effort to be frugal and thoughtful with our tax dollars. I don’t think this is completely the case right

now. The Amigos and the infrastructure funding and overall city spending is an ongoing battle. In a referendum, Campbell River rejected the Robron development as part of a $20 million package but some on council are now saying that we actually do want the $4.8 million Robron development after all. I for one say nay to that but the majority of council – four persons – say aye. Coming from the point of view that our city has only so much money, and quite a few projects, we – and council – have to think carefully about

how the limited monies should be spent. In harsh terms, Catalyst is dead gone and buried, and the $8 million or so of tax revenue is not there. The council’s spending plan is not reflecting that financial reality. I think the mayor, the council, and city manager Laidlaw all agreed to begin with, that the infrastructure needs upgrading, it is not a want but a need, and the funding for that must go forward. But the point had to be driven home, given the limited budget, that some things have to wait. Infrastructure can’t wait;

Robron can wait. Borrowing funds is possible but it just isn’t smart. Taxpayers will, at some point, say that enough is enough and the story of the Amigos will be just a memory of more pleasant times. Maybe in a few years when Campbell River has the wherewithal for the Robron project, it can be done. Now is not a good time when infrastructure needs attention – and financing. Many people will not like me for saying this, but: we need roads before we need astroturf. Marina Mactavish Campbell River

Continued from A8

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 increase 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.

Fletcher: Debate should be in public not in press releases

Question: What can be done for crooked front teeth?

Answer: There are several ways to address

crooked front teeth, but it depends on the degree of crowding. Severe crowding is often best treated with orthodontics (braces) to straighten the teeth. Moderate to mild crowding can also be treated with Invisalign, which utilizes clear trays that are custom made and move teeth gradually and gently. This can Dr. Joseph Schafermeyer be done at your family dental office. Another way to change the appearance of teeth is with composites. These are tooth-coloured resin fillings that are bonded to repair decayed, chipped, fractured, or discoloured teeth. They can also be used to close spaces between teeth, make teeth look longer, or change the shape or colour of teeth. They usually last several years, depend on how much bonding was done and oral/biting habits. Other options include porcelain veneers and crowns. These are thin layers of porcelain that are placed and bonded to prepared teeth. They can be used in situations where one wishes to change the shape, colour, or overall appearance of his or her teeth. They are very lifelike and can last for many years with proper care. In order to find out which treatment would work best for you, please speak to your dentist, or call us for an exam or free Invisilign consultation.

Storage ‘war’ Taggers targeted again NEWS NEWS

KRisten douglas

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The city is cracking down on the use of shipping containers after learning that some residents are illegally using them for storage. Council gave first and second reading to a bylaw that last week that will restrict the use of shipping containers to the city’s four industrial zones only. The proposed bylaw will also go to a public hearing. City planner Chris Osborne said the bylaw was in response to an increasing number of shipping containers being used for purposes other than what they’re designed for. “They are intended for the hauling of freight, typically on ships and rail cars and have a corresponding form and function,” said Osborne in a report to council. “However, there are a number of residential properties in the city where the containers are placed in the front yard or driveway for long-term ancillary storage purposes. Osborne said that leads to devaluing of nearby residential homes, public complaints, and an emerging enforcement problem. He added that shipping containers are also being used by commercial businesses instead of constructing proper buildings. “In general, they are used for additional on-site storage and in some cases, form the majority of buildings in some mini-storage facilities,” Osborne said. “This is of particular concern given the evolution of the local economy and the greater and

emerging prominence of tourism as a significant component of jobs and investment.” A big concern is residents and businesses illegally placing shipping containers on their properties. “It would appear that an increasing number of residents are turning to the use of shipping containers as an alternative to traditional ancillary building construction in an effort to avoid the costs associated with building permits, including survey and engineering costs,” Osborne said. “In the case of commercial properties, businesses are generally turning to their use out of convenience and relatively low cost, in addition to efforts to avoid development permits, works and services and development cost charges.” Osborne noted that in both cases, the shipping containers are being used on the “mistaken assumption” that the containers are not buildings and do not require permits. City staff recommended that the best way to control their use is to restrict them to the city’s four industrial zones. However, if the bylaw is adopted, there will be some flexibility to allow shipping containers to be temporarily used in order to move goods. “The proposed bylaw...permits shipping containers to be placed on any lot for not more than 30 days per calendar year, and further, that with written justification, this period may be extended up to 90 days” Osborne said. The bylaw would also allow shipping containers to be temporarily used for security, storage or site office purposes on construction sites.

The grainy image from the surveillance camera shows what appears to be a teenaged boy standing in the Sportsplex Skatepark at night. Campbell River RCMP believe he’s just one of the city’s many taggers who spray paint buildings, signs, bus stops and other public places. “Graffiti costs businesses and taxpayers a lot of money and erodes the beauty of our community,” said Cpl. Poppy Hallam in a news release. “It’s our community and we need to work together to stop this senseless crime.” The term “tagging” is more appropriate than “graffiti” which is often the work of someone with actual artistic talent. Tagging usually involves spray painting a signature or a scrawl of sloppy letters. On June 26 and again on June 23, police responded to complaints of taggers at Sportsplex, located at Willow Point Park. They’ve released surveillance images of the young suspect in the hope someone can help

identify him. The images are available at the Crime Stoppers website, campbellriver.crimestoppersweb. com, under “Crime of

the Week.” Along with the Skatepark, Mounties have investigated recent tagging of highway signs, hydro boxes, benches, bus stops, public parks and buildings throughout the city. “The City of Campbell River and local businesses have been diligent in promptly removing the graffiti,” said Hallam. “However, it often reappears, which is very frustrating to business owners as this is a costly and irritating crime.” Graffiti and tagging is considered Mischief under the Criminal Code of Canada and carries a maximum penalty of two years in jail or fines. “C a m p b e l l R i v e r RCMP have charged some offenders, but that has not been a deterrent for some culprits as

the same style graffiti is reappearing and there is information that at least one of the recently charged offenders is out tagging again,” Hallam added. The city has a public nuisance bylaw which covers graffiti, with a fine of $200 for offenders and $150 for businesses that don’t remove tags. As well, the Mounties maintain a comprehensive database of photographs of tags from both known and unidentified offenders. Offenders have a signature style so once an offender is identified, police can check the database and link the offender’s tags to other locations and this can result in multiple charges. Anyone with information can call RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

SPCA volunteer ‘raising the roof’ Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

When Tom Burton signed up to help volunteer with the Campbell River SPCA he figured it would be an opportunity to be around some of the animals and get some light exercise. But what he ended up with is a friend for life. Burton, who was a volunteer dog walker with the SPCA for just over a year, fell in love with Violet, a three-year-old Hungarian vizsla and redbone coonhound cross, who lived at the shelter. “She was picked up as a stray,” Burton said. “I started walking her and I saw the potential in that dog.” Burton said he was attracted to her spunky personality. “She was an escape artist,” Burton said. “She climbed a six-foot chain link fence to get into

Buster’s (a pit bull that’s since been adopted) kennel to play with him. So I fostered her and then I adopted her.” Burton is so thankful for the SPCA and the animal welfare services it provided in Campbell River that he’s trying to give back to SPCA. Burton has visited several big box stores in Campbell River to drum up some support for a donation program to the Campbell River SPCA Building Fund – an account set up by the BC SPCA at Scotia Bank for money earmarked to go towards a shelter owned and operated by the SPCA. Burton approached Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Home Hardware, London Drugs, Save-On-Foods, Staples, Target, Thrifty’s, and Wal-Mart but so far has only received a definite response from one of

those stores.

“Save-On-Foods jumped on the bandwagon immediately,” Burton said. “Save-On-Foods got back to me in three days. They’re terrific, absolutely terrific.” What the store is doing to help is allowing customers who are a part of the Save-On More rewards program to redeem their points in 1,000 point increments towards the SPCA’s build-

ing fund. Each 1,000 points will be converted into $1 and Save-On-Foods will then match all of the points donated by its customers. Burton said Save-OnFoods will continue with the fundraising program as long as there’s activity in the account. Burton and other SPCA volunteers plan to set up a table at Save-On every Sunday to promote the fundraiser, dubbed Raise

the Roof, as well as set up collection tins for people who are not Save-On rewards card holders but wish to make a donation. The SPCA meanwhile is moving ahead with plans to lease an undisclosed building for a period of two to three years or until enough money can be raised to build a new shelter. The SPCA plans to relocate back to Campbell River around July 31.

Erasing racism

Local service providers, college students, youth and community members were joined by Raj Gill, the Director of Prosperity Circles Coaching International in B.C. from the Lower Mainland, to receive basic training on how to respond with compassion when facing discrimination or conflict. The training was part of the MythBusters Action Team project funded by the province and is led by the Immigrant Welcome Centre. Forty-four participants came together on June 6 at the Museum at Campbell River to learn practical skills in development of supportive social circles and displacement of negative emotions during uncomfortable interactions including discriminatory situations. The Immigrant Welcome Centre also conducted a survey with 50 community members before the course took place and found interesting results. The data collected from 50 community members show that over 95 per cent of respondents have experienced, witnessed or heard cases of discrimination against immigrants. Among all types of discrimination, the top three are ethnic backgrounds (29.66 per cent), language (26.2 per cent) and colour (20.69 per cent). The data also re veals that the majority of respondents (51 per cent) feel that they possess average or below skills when dealing with language barriers. The second MythBuste rs t r ai n i ng course is scheduled in September. It is open to the public, free of charge. To learn more about future courses and the Mythbusters Action Team project, contact project coordinator Vienna Yeung at 250-830-0171. The Immigrant Welcome C ent re provides services to immigrants to help them integrate and settle into Canada.

Grandmothers to Grandmothers gets a boost A truly exceptional exhibit of artwork has been circulating the western provinces for the past few months and opens at the Campbell River Museum today.   Not only is the work exceptional, but the artists who produced the work did so with the intent of giving to a cause.  In this case, the cause is one that has been taken up by participants in the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign – launched by the Stephen Lewis Foundation to financially assist grandmothers in Africa caring for children orphaned by HIV and AIDS.  The Royal City Gogos of New Westminster (gogo means grandmother in Zulu) is the group behind this latest exhibit. Local grandmothers will be in attendance throughout the show, and will be selling their Kazuri jewellery at the Museum on the 6th and 7th. Maria Box of the Comox Valley is one of five artists who produced textile work for the multi-media show called Celebrating African Grandmothers, Heroes of the Continent.  In total, 35 artists worldwide participated and 40

pieces were produced.  Box heard about the opportunity to participate through her membership with Comox Valley Glacier Grannies and was involved with the previous travelling show, Turning the Tide, one ripple at a time.  Box has been sewing from an early age, acquiring her first sewing machine at the age of six.  She began as a textile artist but took up quilting to develop discipline in her art.  Her work and methods are unusual as she uses recycled clothing and synthetic fabrics to

produce her work, and teaches her methods to others. The piece of art she contributed to this show, entitled Sisters took her about two months to make. She found inspiration for the work from the notion that in Third World countries, many people subsist on the three sisters – corn, squash and beans. It proved to be a fitting allegory for the collaborative nature of working on the art show with a group of similar minded ladies who, she says, are highly motivated and hard workers.

ENTERTAINMENT ENTERTAINMENT

Filberg Festival releases its line up of musical acts Continued from A18

opportunities to listen to groups of musicians playing together, communicating with the audience, and each, other through the language of the well crafted song. Friday Blues Panel Host of the Blues Panel concert this year is guitarist Sam Hurrie who will be joined by multiinstrumentalist Michael Jerome Browne, guitarists Ken Hamm, and Paul Pigat, harmonica player Gary Preston, and Anita Bonkowski on bass/percussion.

Each performer is an accomplished musician with their own individual style, but on Friday afternoon they come together and share their extensive knowledge of the Blues with the audience. Their material might range from their own original compositions, to tunes by their Blues heroes from the past, such as Robert Johnson, Elmore James or Sonny Boy Williamson. Each musician takes a turn as lead performer as they showcase the Blues past and present, teaching you a little Blues history along the way.

Saturday Song Swap Ridley Bent and Sean Hogan, both country singer songwriters, get together to swap songs on the main stage. Bent, with his unique blend of country, rock and hiphop, and Hogan, with his unique blend of altcountry and modern pop roots come together to share tunes and communicate with one another through their music. Ridley Bent is an exceptional lyricist who seems to have an endless cast of characters running around in his head. With numerous awards and accolades to his name, it

is clear that Bent’s enthusiastic story telling has not gone unheard. In 2008 and 2009 he was nominated for more than twenty awards, including CCMA and BCCMA awards. With three acclaimed albums under his hat already, the multiaward winning singersongwriter and outlaw storyteller is an incisive, witty, and an exceptionally literate lyricist. His albums read like a collection of short stories, showcasing Bent’s keen fascination for characters whose life on the straight and narrow rarely lasts past the nearest exit to a

short, crooked road. Hogan is known for his well-written soulful songs. The response to his debut album in 1996 was extraordinary, immediately catching the attention of country radio and music fans across Canada, leading to his first CCMA award. His next two albums were each named Best Country Album at the West Coast Music Awards, and were followed up with the CCMA’s Roots Artist of the Year award in 2003. The next album won three more music industry awards and was named the second best

album of 2005 by the Country Music News. Sunday Fiddle Panel For the first time ever Filberg presents a Fiddle Panel Concert featuring musical guests from across the country. The performers include: PEAR: a husband and wife duo from Alberta. Denis and Lynae were formerly members of Barrage, the most successful fiddle show in the world. Patti Lamoureux with multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Rusu: from Manitoba. Lamoureux was the first woman in history to win the pres-

tigious Canadian Grand Masters Fiddling Championship. Carli and Julie Kennedy: a powerhouse duo, from B.C., who play a fusion of country, folk, jazz and Celtic tunes. Daniel Lapp: also from B.C., Daniel is a legendary force in Canada’s fiddle scene. Monday Great Canadian Songs This year the festival has one of Canada’s most influential songwriters, Canadian folk icon Murray McLauchlan. Murray has been a part of the fabric of Canadian folk music for many years.

3 Options for your glass containers

The glass collection bins will be removed from the recycling depots July 15, 2013.

CVRD

The depots are for the collection of products that can be recycled. For glass to be recycled, it must be sorted and shipped to out-of-province factories to be made into new glass, as there is no longer a glass recycling facility in BC. The glass collected at the recycling depots is of a poor quality in that it is often contaminated with other material, meaning that, in many instances, the product cannot be recycled anywhere.

3 Dispose

1

Residents are encouraged to reuse their non-refundable glass containers as many times as possible. Many glass containers (such as pop, juice, wine, beer and liquor bottles) require a deposit to be paid when the product is purchased, so residents should take those containers back to the point of purchase or to the Return-It bottle depots.

2

Residents can drop off their non-refundable glass containers in the bins that have been moved to secured and safe locations at the Campbell River and Comox Valley waste management centres. The glass accepted at these locations will be repurposed as aggregate for roads or ground cover in the landfill. Unlike food waste, glass is an inert material that does not decompose in the landfill to produce leachate or emit harmful greenhouse gases.

3

Residents can choose to place their non-refundable glass containers in their household garbage for pick up.

*NOTE: It is important to remember that glass containers are not accepted in the blue box municipal curbside recycling programs. For more information visit

Works begins on new BC Hydro office in Campbell River Architectural rendering of the new BC Hydro office at Quinsam Crossing.

C ons t r u c t i on h a s begun on a new BC Hydro office in Campbell River. The building will replace the current building located on Evergreen Road. The $23 million project will create and sustain about 60 jobs during the 16-month construction period. “For a number of years we have looked at options for the 40-year old Evergreen Road building and eventually arrived at the best longterm solution by moving to the new location,” says BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. “The Quinsam Crossing site is ideal for our office and light industrial land use activities, is clean from an environmental perspective, and it provides easy access to the highway for crews needing to respond to outages and emergencies.” Omicron, a Vancouver-based construction company, was awarded the contract for the con-

very pleased to see the work that’s started on the 7.8-acre lot. It’s the beginning of a long-term business relationship with BC Hydro. “It’s also the first time in the province that a BC Hydro building has been located onto Indian Reserve lands. This is precedence setting and we’re proud to be part of it.”   BC Hydro employees focused on the powerline side of the business will move into the building in early 2015. “These are our employees responsible for building and maintaining the lines that get power to your homes and businesses,” says Watson. “Depending on the final site configuration chosen for the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project, to be known this summer, employees from power generation could also move to the new building,” adds Watson. “We will be starting upgrade work at the Campbell

River Commons around mid-July so that staff at the John Hart office can temporarily move offsite this fall during the John Hart project construction period. We’ll know this summer if they’ll end up going back to the same office at John Hart, or move to the new office at the Quinsam Crossing.” BC Hydro says they must relocate from the office on Evergreen Road for a number of reasons, such as the building not being seismically sound because of soil liquefaction, there is no fire suppression system, the air quality in the vehicle bays is not sufficient and the building is too small. “People have heard about our major rebuilds for our aging transmission and hydroelectric generation assets, such as John Hart, that were built decades ago,” says Watson. “What is not as well-known is some of our field office buildings like Evergreen are in that same category.”

Omicron is in the process of awarding subcontractor work, with some already in place, with further work to be awarded in the near future. Waycor Holdings has started the earthworks to prepare the site. Omicron and B C Hydro recently met with the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce.

2012. Included in the deficit is a $1.1 million tax shortfall carried over from 2011, plus a $1.3 million increase in costs related to contract commitments and inflationary increases, said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services. If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city. That one per cent increase would mean roughly $12 more per year in property taxes for the average homeowner. The city’s operating budget is approximately $37 million which Continued on A3

Ravens earn berth in bantam provincials The Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam A Ravens started their first round playoff series against Cowichan Valley Thunder (CVT)in Duncan on Sat June 29. CVT took it to the Ravens who took it on the chin in this one, losing 9-4. One key to success in life is getting right back up after being knocked down. Fortunately, the Ravens had an opportunity to put that to the test as game two of the series began at noon in Courtenay on Sunday, June 30.  The Ravens shut CVT down in this game with a 5-4 victory to tie the series at one game apiece, forcing a third and deciding game. Neither team would get much rest as the third game began less than two hours after the first one ended.  The Ravens jumped out to an early lead as Lukas Lund got the ball to Fair and he fired a low howitzer into the back of the net; 1-0 Ravens.  They built up a 7-2 lead but CVT proved they weren’t going to go quietly as they kept the pressure on the Ravens, scoring twice to make it 7-4 before the Ravens scored another short-handed goal to make it 8-4 with less than three minutes to play. CVT pulled their goalie and kept a fast-tempo pace as they scored twice more in the last minute of the game but came up a bit short as the buzzer went in the Ravens’ 8-6 victory. This series win means that the Booster Juice Bantam A Ravens will now compete for the Island banner against either Nanaimo or Peninsula (to be determined later this week). They’ve also earned a berth in the provincial championships to be held in the Lower Mainland July 18 to 21.

River girls ride rugby wave to provincial victory It was the little team that could and did. After only three practice sessions together, the Vancouver Island Tsunami U16 Girls, with local players Georgia Bellamy and Kristine Osachuk, both 16, won the B2Gold Provincial Regional Championships with an intense display of defence over favourites Fraser Valley in the finals, coming out on top with a score of 10-7. The last 10 minutes

were spent in Tsunami’s end, with incredible commitment to tackle after tackle giving Fraser Valley limited options. Dave Ward, Tsunami’s support coach currently based in Vancouver, said of their performance, “I have to say that in the final game I was standing behind their (the Tsunami) posts as Tsunami were defending big time – those young women really had to give everything for each other and

It was a really tough game, actually none were easy and it took good teamwork to get through, so the Island U16 Tsunami women did a fantastic job.” “After seeing the first trial camp and the skill and athleticism of all 35 participants, I knew this team would turn heads at provincials.
