District muses over parking North Saanich winery seeking more parking for agri-tourism Steven Heywood News staff
Parking on the road near the Muse Winery in North Saanich has become a concern for district council and they are asking staff for some solutions. The owners of the winery, Peter and Jane Ellmann, have asked the district to develop a parking area on the public boulevard on the east side of Chalet Road and south side of Tatlow Road. This, they said will help keep vehicles off the road when they host agritourism events at the winery. Neighbours of the winery, John and Mary Lojek, have written in opposition to any plans to create parking and any public land in the area. They write that they would rather see the owners of Muse use their own property for parking. “The owner is obliged to provide onsite parking,” said North Saanich chief administrative officer Rob Buchan at council’s June 24 meeting. He said the owner can seek a bylaw variance to expand it, adding that seeking permission for parking along the boulevard “doesn’t satisfy the issue.” Please see: Parking report requested, page 4

Hughes honoured as a builder Steven Heywood News staff
If residents of the Town of Sidney find it easier to get around, they can thank Jeanette Hughes, says Mayor Larry Cross. Cross honoured the late Mrs. Hughes with the town’s Community Builder Award, announced June 30 is Beacon Park. Cross said in her three terms on town council, Hughes influenced the future of the community by insisting on making accessibility a priority in zoning and planning regulations. “We all miss her,” Cross said, noting Hughes’ extensive list of volunteer activities. “I’ll miss her and no one will soon forget her scooter and the red flag she always had with her.” Hughes’ daughter Maureen Wingerter accepted the award on her mother’s behalf. Hughes died on April 10 at the age of 74. “Mom was passionate about accessibility,” she said. Hughes had Multiple Sclerosis but that didn’t stop her

for about $900 for pressure-washing services that were never done. He also scammed a Oak Bay resident out of $1,220 who paid up front for driveway resealing, but he didn’t return to do the work. A joint investigation in 2012 by the Oak Bay police, Saanich police and Central Saanich police determined Gordon was responsible for a series of similar frauds across Greater Victoria. He pleaded guilty to two charges of theft from incidents in Colwood; fraud over $5,000, using a stolen
credit card and fraud under $5,000 from incidents in Saanich; and three charges of fraud under $5,000 from incidents in Oak Bay, Victoria and Saanichton. “This is a file that our detective section took an active interest in from the start,” said Oak Bay Chief Mark Fisher. “In this instance the offender actually took the victim to the bank to get cash from her account before doing the work. This type of exploitation of the elderly is despicable. The investigators were pleased to see the
offender receive a significant sentence in this instance.” Nanaimo RCMP arrested Gordon on July 14, 2012, a few days after security guards allegedly caught him trying to defraud the Wal-Mart at Uptown, but where he ran off still wearing handcuffs. Last Thursday in Victoria provincial court, Gordon received an 18-month sentence, and was ordered to make restitution upon his eventual release, as a condition of the court imposed probation.

Old age and treachery keeping Eric afloat Eric Jespersen, owner of Jespersen Wooden Boat Builders, gets ready to ship latest restoration project Steven Heywood News staff
Eric Jespersen and his boat building crew out at Canoe Cove Marina are putting the finishing touches on a restoration project that has taken two years to complete. Working for a client out of Australia, Jespersen Wooden Boat Builders has completely restored a 1960s-era Monk yacht. Jespersen says when they received the boat at the beginning of the job, it had sat for years, was waterlogged and much of the wood on board was cracked. The first challenge, he said, was to dry it out — which took up a lot of time. “It was a major project to get it sound and up to snuff,” said Jespersen, who has been a boat builder since 1969. He started with his father, Bent, who ran the family business at the time. Eric grew up around boats, not only building and repairing them, but racing them as well. It’s a sport that has taken him around the world — and most recently, around Vancouver Island in the Van Isle 360 race on board his six-meter vessel Emma. Back in the mid1980s, Eric took part in two America’s Cup yacht races. He would

He still races of course, alongside his own teenage son and nowretired father. He said he’s off to Europe in a few weeks for some more competition on the high seas. In other words, Eric comes from a strong line of mariners and uses his experience and skill (or as he put in regards to racing, “old age and treachery”) when it comes to restoring and building wooden boats at his North Saanich boathouse.
He has built a reputation for quality and it shows in the restored yacht at Canoe Cove Marina. Shining wood highlights the project — which is a long way from how the boat looked when it first arrived. “It should be boat show quality now,” Eric said. The final installations are almost done and the interior fabrics are expected soon. The yacht will then be shipped to Sydney, Australia — a task for which Eric said he had to make special preparations. “To ship it for a long time in hot tempera-
tures, we had to make sure it was dried out and we used structural resin for the cracks and separations — we made it look like it was original.” The client has been happy with the work, Eric said, having visited the shop three times over the last two years. The restoration was one of Eric’s larger projects. A typical job — such as building a wooden boat from scratch — takes about two years, he said. The time isn’t a huge factor when customers commission him to build it, he continued, but it does have to be
Farmlands Trust launches regional speaker series First presentation on urban sprawl next weekend CENTRAL SAANICH — The Farmlands Trust Society is launching its speaker series on regional issues affecting farmland next weekend. The first presentation, which will take place Saturday, July 13 is entitled Urban sprawl: The end of rural life? As many communities in Greater Victoria explore expanded housing developments, strip malls and other infrastructure, local farmland and related natural spaces in this region are being affected by urban uses which have significant implications for residents now and in the future. Guest speaker Capital Regional District (CRD) Director Vic Derman will explore and discuss how rural communities may vanish under the pressures of increased growth. The presentation begins at 7 p.m. on July 13 at St. Stephen’s Memorial Hall in Central Saanich (7921 St. Stephen’s Rd.) The event is free to attend and light refreshments and snacks will be served. — Submitted

balanced by the fact most of his clients are retired and are fulfilling a dream to own their own yacht.
Make no mistake, building a boat from the hull-up is a luxury and Eric noted that the industry has faced
tough times in recent years. His traditional market, the United States, saw a decline in orders as the Canadian dollar reached par with the Greenback — then even more so when the economy struggled after 2008. “It’s a difficult business just to jump into,” Eric said. He noted, however, his experience and skill — not to mention a good reputation in the industry — has kept his business running. He rebuilds and repairs boats as well, staying afloat in-between the big jobs. Yet, for all of its challenges Eric said the business isn’t stressful, as most of his clients are in it for the pleasure of owning their own yacht. editor@peninsula newsreview.com

Domestic terrorism a reality for Canada
mid the celebrations and fireworks Monday, Victoria suddenly found itself joined to the rarefied club of Canadian cities targeted for a high-profile terrorist attack. If the suspects had slipped under the radar and detonated pressure-cooker bombs outside the legislature during Canada Day celebrations, it could have been the worst terrorist attack in history on Canadian soil. Instead, the B.C. RCMP were able to announce two arrests — John Nuttall, a Surrey man (and former Victoria resident) with a significant criminal rap sheet and Amanda Korody, his partner. RCMP assert both of these Canadian born-and-raised suspects were “self-radicalized” by al-Qaida influence. Nuttall has been in and out of Victoria’s courts regularly for assaults, robberies, mischief and possessing weapons. In media articles, he was described as a former drug addict and a violent enforcer when it came to collecting drug debts. He’s also described as a recent convert to Islam. Whether this pair tried to copycat the pressurecooker Boston bombings, were angry antigovernment types, or were interested in promoting an Islamic caliphate in line with al-Qaida goals (or none of the above), the fact their alleged plot was identified, infiltrated and hijacked by RCMP agents is a testament to why Canada needs intelligence agencies. Organizations like the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), which tipped off the provincial RCMP to the plot, and RCMP antiterrorism departments, almost always operate behind the scenes to ferret out domestic terrorism. It’s hard to know how many credible terror plots have been halted in Canada. Beyond oil pipeline bombings in the past, police and intelligence agencies have quashed an alleged plot to blow up a Via passenger train between Toronto and New York by two foreign men who supposedly received guidance from al-Qaida agents; and the so-called “Toronto 18,” (11 were convicted) a group of young Muslim men who plotted to blow up targets across southern Ontario with fertilizer bombs. The foiled Victoria bombing can be seen as a wake-up call to Canadians that terrorism is a reality in this country, and as analysts have predicted, attacks on civilians are not an “if” but a “when.” This is also an opportunity for a national conversation on the bounds of domestic surveillance — what will people tolerate to ensure agencies have the resources to keep Canadians safe?

From offices in Fort Victoria, colonial administrators orchestrated the spread of smallpox in indigenous communities, killing as much as 90 per cent of the population in some areas, as told by Tom Swanky in The True Story of Canada’s “War” of Extermination on the Pacific. Historian Chris Arnett also notes that Fort Victoria housed the ships which bombarded indigenous villages under the guise of justice when warriors fought back against encroachment by settlers. The brutal process of colonization continues today as we celebrate the confederation of a nation on stolen land. Today, the Harper Conservatives and B.C. Liberals have failed to bring out that ‘O Canada’ feeling in many of us. Canada is cut up and tied down as pipelines creep across the West and civil disobedience is increasingly met by mass arrests and the suspension of basic rights. I am proud of some things — I am proud that many Canadians support civil rights and the ongoing struggles of indigenous peoples. I am proud that alternative stories are being told alongside those which romanticize our history and minimize our flaws. As beer-commercial patriotism slowly gives way to honesty and self-awareness, I am proud that Canadians may soon have something worth celebrating.

Saanich-Gulf Islands MP and leader of the Green Party of Canada, Elizabeth May (left), appears to relish her job as a volunteer server during the community barbecue during Sidney Days June 30 in Beacon Park. The popular dinner event raised $3,400 for the Sidney Lions Food Bank.
LETTERS Less expensive housing needed on the Island
egarding approval for small lot development in North Saanich, the council seems either incapable of making a decision they are prepared to stand by or are adroitly employing stalling tactics. Some council members are obviously horrified
at the thought that small, affordable housing might mar our rural landscape. There is no doubt that a district encompassing only five acre estates and monster homes would be attractive. If North Saanich were a suburb of 100 Mile House, this might be doable.
This district is, however, a suburb of the province’s second largest conurbation. Is it not both unrealistic and selfish to expect other local districts to absorb those with more modest means while retaining North Saanich as a fiefdom only
for the well-to-do? Less expensive housing is needed throughout the region. North Saanich needs to provide its share. Let’s start building. Chris Harker North Saanich
Readers respond: Hot summer and dogs don’t mix, North Saanich municipal affairs Keep dogs out of the summer heat Now that the hot summer weather has returned, a reminder to all pet owners is probably in order. I was amazed at the number of dogs in cars in the hot sun at the grocery store parking lot yesterday. It only takes five minutes for the temperature in your car to reach dangerous levels. This should be especially clear after the death of an Ontario toddler in a car just a few days ago. Please leave your pets at home, they should never be left in a car. Doug Dyer Sidney
Council ignores important questions
I’m disappointed to see that Gary Lunn’s arrogance has not lessened since his return from Ottawa. His recent attack on Alice Finall for her attempts to have the North Saanich OCP respected by council is, to say the least, inappropriate. He claims that “she shows a lack of respect for the people of North Saanich” when in point of fact she has attempted to respect their wishes as expressed in the approved OCP.
Lunn’s proposed development, opposed by so many in our community, may have the support of his four friends on council but it violates the OCP that we agreed to. That both Lunn and the majority of council see fit to ignore our wishes is the arrogant part of all of this. Why is a slow and careful consultation that involves the whole community, that might result in a revision of the OCP, not taking place before any development is considered? This is especially needed since much of the land in question is agricultural land that was and should again be producing food under glass. In their rush to unwanted development, the council majority ignores important questions about food security, traffic density and available school capacity. Tom Gore North Saanich
Not too late to build a better world It was depressing to read (PNR, June 28) the attack on Mayor Alice Finall by Gary Lunn. As MP, Mr. Lunn was always courteous and helpful, with a friendly word when he met you.
That he of all people should fall into the poisonous swamp of vituperation and anger which is municipal affairs in North Saanich is sad indeed. We are accustomed to the intemperate words of Mr. Schick (“rezoning purgatory”) and Councillor Daly (“friggin’ delay,” PNR, June 28) which debase public life in North Saanich, but we expected better from Mr. Lunn. Mayor Finall, a gracious and highly-principled lady, has not shown “a lack of respect for the people of North Saanich.” Rather, elected by a solid majority in 2008 and acclaimed in 2011, she has tried to respect the wishes of the citizens of North Saanich who approved their Official Community Plan. The coterie of developers supported by the council majority (which owes its majority to just 12 votes in 2011) may consider North Saanich a “rezoning purgatory,” but the electors were not asked to vote for a “rezoning paradise,” nor did they. Indeed, Councillor Elsie McMurphy, one of the minority, got hundreds more votes than Mr. Daly; Mr. Schick got none and Mr. Lunn lost his MP seat to the Green wave. We need kindness and toler-
ance, not endless profit-driven snarling anger which characterizes public life here. If not, North Saanich will become, as A.E.Housman wrote, “the land of lost content.” Let’s remember the words of Tommy Douglas: “courage my friends, it’s not too late to build a better world.” David Olsen North Saanich
Mayor is doing her best The comments by Gary Lunn “the mayor has to accept that she no longer holds a majority on
North Saanich council and move on” (PNR, Friday, June 28) represents an ever-increasing attitude that the role of elected officials is to rule rather than govern. Should not our councillors be reflecting the welfare and interests of North Saanich residents, rather than the view of the minority who don’t honour the current Official Community Plan? Perhaps it is individuals like Mr. Lunn who show a lack of respect rather than Mayor Finall who is doing her best to clarify a complicated situation. Bob Peart North Saanich

Summer Sounds set to start Concert series kicks off this Sunday
Devon MacKenzie News staff
Get your lawn chairs and blankets ready — Sidney Summer Sounds concert series kicks off this weekend in Beacon Park at the bandshell. The annual concert series features several bands playing dif-
ferent genres throughout July and August from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Sunday. This Sunday, the series kicks off with Impossible Bird — a band featuring Tyler Carson, who was born and raised on the Saanich Peninsula and former fiddler with the Carson Kids, and Nick Drummond, former front
man and songwriter for the hit Seattle band The Senate. Following Impossible Bird are several other bands with a wide array of musical genres including latin/cuban (Cuban Fire) and jazz/blues (The Maureen Washington Quintet). For more information, visit www.summersounds.ca.
Sidney Summer Sounds schedule: July 7 — Impossible Bird Impossible Bird is a duo that will shake your bones. The genre smashing duo from Seattle has been turning heads up and down the West Coast of North America with their blend of infectious songs and playful live shows. In April 2012 they released their debut self-titled EP which was instantly hailed as a musical tour-de-force by critics from across the musical spectrum, many noting that it signified the start of something truly exceptional. July 14 — Cuban Fire An award winning trio that performs original music and Latin/Cuban classics in all genres (son, salsa, bolero, etc.) They delight audiences of all ages with their warm personalities and heartfelt music. The group, now known worldwide as Cuban Fire Trio was originally founded in Villa Clara, Cuba, in 1994. They currently live and perform in the beautiful, world heritage city of Cienfuegos, where they have the honour of being listed in the Catalogue of Excellent Musicians. July 21 — Naden Band The Naden Band supports the Commander Maritime Forces Pacific in accomplishing his goal of bringing the Navy to Canadians throughout Western Canada. The band supports local communities with its active role in fund-raising for non-profit organizations, such as the United Way Campaign and the Salvation Army Annual Christmas Toy Drive. July 28 — Rukus Golden Oldies as you remember hearing them, from Elvis to The Beatles and everything in between — Rukus is devoted to the preservation of authentic 50s and 60s rock ‘N’ roll. Playing in and around Victoria, Rukus has performed since 1981 to enthusiastic audiences of all ages.
Aug. 4 — The Maureen Washington Quintet Victoria’s own award-winning Maureen Washington presents originals and standards from a Jazz and Blues repertoire. An always popular performer at a wide range of events and venues around Vancouver Island, including the Victoria International Jazz Fest, Washington was named Monday Magazine’s Jazz and Blues Artist of the Year for 2011 and 2013 and was nominated in 2011 for Female Vocalist of the Year and 2012 for Best Live Act for the Vancouver Island Music Awards. Aug. 11 — Tropical Jam feat. Brimacombe Family This versatile musical Trio specializes in old and new musical styles of the Caribbean (folk, calypso, soca, reggae) while also including light jazz and popular standards in their varied repertoire. The Trio will be visiting B.C. from the Caribbean where audiences of all ages are currently enjoying listening, singing along and dancing to their colourful arrangements. Aug. 18 — Johnny Vallis Best known as the Man of Many Voices, Johnny Vallis has been an entertainer since he was first able to speak. While still in junior high school, this talented youngster portrayed Buddy Holly as part of the wildly popular Legends Of Rock and Roll tour. Traveling the world, he has played top venues in Canada, Australia, the US and the United Kingdom.

MOVE IN NOW! NEW SIDNEY TOWNHOMES
One parent’s silent promise
t has been eight years, but I still remember my daughter’s first cry as she introduced herself to the world. Cradling six pounds and 14 ounces in my arms, I recall few things more vividly than seeing her for the first time, thinking how weightless she felt — and whispering a silent promise into her ear that I would always protect her from harm. Almost a decade later, looking out on a crowd gathered at the Royal B.C. Museum in May for the announcement of the 2013 Cops for Cancer, Tour de Rock team, I see her clapping wildly alongside my son as I am introduced as one of the riders on the tour. I recall feeling how grateful I was for their health because there were parents in that very room shedding tears because their children weren’t so lucky. After five years of covering the build up to the two-week, 1,000-kilometre ride as a journalist, photographing and writing stories about the riders, volunteers and cancer survivors, those tears still get to me. Cancer has not yet reached my immediate family. I know I am one of the fortunate few, however, I know there is no guarantee that my good luck will hold out. In fact, I know my fortune thus far is in part because of the ongoing efforts of the Canadian
Don Descoteau/News staff
Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock 2013 rider and Black Press contributor Arnold Lim films the crowd as he rides in the Oak Bay Tea Party parade last month. He will be chronicling his experiences leading up to and including the Island-wide Tour this September. Cancer Society and its supporters, who selflessly donate time and finances to the research that has improved the odds of keeping cancer away and helped
those diagnosed with the deadly disease stay healthier longer. There is no cure for the many types of cancer, so more work needs to be done, but one day there will be. I don’t know when — maybe not in my lifetime — but I know it will happen. I train believing every kilometre we ride today will take us that one pedal stroke and one kilometre closer to finding the cure. Many days it is the only thing that keeps me going, as fatigued legs scream out at me to stop. I can’t stop, because I made a promise, the same one millions of parents have made before me – and one any mother or father would lay down their life to keep. I ride because cancer is a formidable opponent that doesn’t make promises, it breaks them. And one day, the parent robbed of the ability to keep their promise to their child could be me. Arnold Lim is one of 21 riders on the 2013 Cops for Cancer, Tour de Rock. Representing Black Press on the ride, his column will be appearing every two weeks through the end of the tour. To donate to his fundraising campaign visit www. copsforcancerbc.ca/tourderock/ arnoldlim or visit his Tour de Rock Facebook page at www.facebook. com/arnoldlimtourderock and follow him on Twitter at @arnoldlimphoto.
B.C. titles for Pen Track masters Danny Daniels Contributor
Three Pen Track athletes came back from the B.C. Masters Championships in Langley last month, sporting gold medals proclaiming them as new Provincial Champions for 2013. Leading the way was Don Brodeur in the M60 category, with victories in discus and shot put. His gold medal throw of 11.15m was just below his previous season’s best, but he still has the two furthest throws in his age group in Canada this year.
Collecting his two gold medals was Les East (M70) in the high jump and the triple jump. East also added four silver medals to his total, placing second in the discus, hammer, shot and the eight throw. Rounding out a strong weekend, he took the bronze in the javelin with a throw of 20.73m. Not to be outdone by her male teammates, Anne Murfitt (W50) won her championship gold medal in discus and followed with a silver in the javelin and two bronzes in hammer and shot.
Mette Fossberg (W60), capping a season coming back from major surgery, won a bronze medal in the 200m event and just missed out by 1/100th of a second on a second bronze in the 100m. For the younger athletes, their season winds down with the upcoming B.C. Junior Development and Pentathlon Championships and the B.C. Athletics Jamboree event. Danny Daniels is a regular contributor to the Peninsula News Review for the Peninsula Track and Field Club.

Winning wine has ties to the Saanich Peninsula Church and State Wine’s Oliver winery is one of twelve wines chosen in Lieutenant-Governor’s picks VICTORIA — Twelve wines, including one from a winery with ties to the Saanich Peninsula have been chosen for the 2013 Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence in British Columbia Wines. Lieutenant-Governor Judith
Guichon announced her picks last week which included the 2010 Coyote Bowl Syrah from Church and State Wines’ Oliver winery. Guichon visited the winning wineries to present the awards last week.
“The outstanding quality of wines in British Columbia impresses our wine judges each year and makes the selection increasingly difficult,” said Guichon. “This year’s winners represent
the best of the exceptional wines from our province.” This year was the largest competition in the 11-year history of the awards, with 402 wines submitted from 109 wineries across the province. Wines submitted
had to be from 100 per cent B.C. grown grapes and produced in the province to be eligible. For a full list of the winning wines, see www.ltgov.bc.ca.
