More cars than ever expected at Brits on the Beach Nick Bekolay

THE CHRONICLE

British motoring enthusiasts will roll into Ladysmith Sunday, July 14, as hundreds of British cars and motorcycles converge on Transfer Beach Park for Brits on the Beach. The “all-British car and motorcycle event,” hosted by the Central Island branch of the Old English Car Club of British Columbia (OECC), returns to Ladysmith for its 14th year with a bigger-than-ever selection of exotic roadsters and classic cruisers. OECC member Steve Wareing said the show attracts, on average, 200 vehicles every year, but with the OECC’s annual general meeting scheduled to take place in Nanaimo July 12-13, event organizers are anticipating their biggest turnout to date. Car clubs from across Vancouver Island are regular participants in the festival, Wareing said, drawing significant numbers of Jaguars, Minis, Austin-Healeys, MGs and Triumphs to the event every year. Alongside Britain’s most popular automotive brands, festivalgoers are likely to encounter more rare and exotic cars from the likes of Rolls Royce and Bentley, Wareing added, and a selection of bikes from Triumph, Royal Enfield, BSA, Norton and Vincent, but organizers won’t know what the final lineup will look like until the day Kai Schwarz wields a trio of Phantasticks to help promote the Schwarzes’ family-run toy business to pass- of the festival. ersby at the Chemainus Giant Street Market Saturday, July 6.

in decades,” Wareing said. “It’s always interesting to see what turns up.” Wareing owns a 1972 MGB GT that he acquired in 2007. He’s since welded new sills onto his car before having it repainted. That experience offered him an appreciation for how much time and energy owners invest in maintaining and restoring cars in their collections. Some of the cars on display at Brits on the Beach will be complete restorations in near-mint condition, Wareing said, while a select few will bear the telltale signs of long yet careful use. “A couple of years ago, out of the blue, we saw a 1926 Bentley Roadster,” Wareing said. “A huge, huge roadster. The owner drove it up from Victoria. It had been in his family since 1936. It was his grandfather’s car, then his father’s car and then his. I couldn’t even guess at the value of the thing, but it was so neat that it had been in the family for so many years. And the other thing was: it hadn’t been restored as such. It was used, so there were some dents on it and some scratches on it and the paint wasn’t that shiny, but the beautiful thing about it was that it was used. In other words, it wasn’t just made to look nice and then put in a museum somewhere. It’s actually on the road.” Wareing encourages anyone who owns a made-in-the-U.K. car, truck or motorcycle to bring it down to Transfer Beach Park for the show See Entrance Page 4

Around the council table

At its latest meeting on July 2, Ladysmith council gave first and second reading to a zoning amendment bylaw that would amend the Tourist Recreational Commercial (C-4) Zone to permit three additional uses: single-family residential dwelling; home occupation; and professional and business office. The C-4 Zone applies to properties on both the east and west side of Esplanade Avenue. There are commercial buildings and singlefamily dwellings in this area, and some of the single-family homes have been converted to business use, according to a staff report from Felicity Adams, the Town’s director of development services. Recently, property owners in this area have identified zoning issues, which prompted staff to bring forward this proposed bylaw amendment, according to Adams. Permitting home occupation use within a single-family dwelling is appropriate to consider, she added. A public hearing will be held at a future date. *** Council has approved a Temporary Use Permit to allow a mobile food service at 930 Ludlow Rd. for two years. The food service is north of the Wash-Me on Ludlow building. Operating out of a small RV trailer on wheels and offering options such as french fries, hamburgers and hot dogs, it is intended to be temporary and seasonal in nature.

THE CHRONICLE

He said there are a number of natural history books on the market, but most cruise passengers aren’t likely to cart a large reference book around with them.

Ladysmith’s Bruce Whittington is a passionate naturalist who is sharing his love of the great outdoors with those travelling the coastline from B.C. to Alaska. He recently published Alaska Cruise Wildlife Watch, a book that provides information on many of the spectacular sights and sounds cruisers can expect to see as they make their way north. The book is an updated version of his popular 2007 guide, but with some additional information and improved photographs.

“My intent was to produce a book that somebody could have with them, in their pocket, when they’re on deck,” said Whittington. “Alaska is just such an amazing place, and for people to not be prepared for what they might see, to me, is a wasted opportunity.”

The previous version of the guide proved popular, selling all 5,000 printed copies, and the new version has been picked up by Alaska Geographic. That company supplies books to American national parks visitor centres and to park rangers who go on board h Alaskan cruises c u s t s ju to provide Alaska is , g place in z information to a m a an to le passengers. p o e p

Ladysmith naturalist, photographer and writer Bruce Whittington has released an updated version of his popular wildlife book which focuses on the flora and fauna passengers are likely to see while cruising the coast from B.C. to Alaska.

The whales then shoot up from below, mouths open, trapping the fish and breaking the surface all at once. “It’s just stunning to see it; it’s so breathtaking,” said Whittington. He hopes that by sharing some of his knowledge, he can inspire others to help conserve the environment. “When you give people a bit of information about something, they take some ownership of it and it becomes more important to them. So when you see people with their mouths open having just watched a humpback whale breech or an iceberg crashing

into the sea, it just opens up all kinds of questions about, ‘Are we looking after this? What do we need to do as a species to live in harmony with this amazing ecosystem?’” Whittington has also written another book entitled What’s That Island? which provides information on the sites one can see from the ferry between Victoria and Tsawwassen. Alaska Cruise Wildlife Watch and What’s That Island? are available at select stores, including Ladysmith’s Bayview Framing & Art and Salamander Books, as well as online at www. strayfeathers.ca, for $14.95.

Newspapers alive and well

60th years after the end of the Korean War

Canadians want their community newspapers Suzanne Raitt

Newspapers Canada

Newspapers are alive and well in Canada. Eight in 10 Canadians have read a newspaper in the last week in print or online. And each day, more than half of Canadians read. If we just consider print newspapers for a moment, there are 21 per cent more print newspapers than there were in 1970. Furthermore, there were 10 new print newspapers launched in last year. Canadians love print newspapers.

Eight in 10 Canadians have read a newspaper in the last week in print or online.

Many newspapers offer �lyers in print and electronic form. Eighty-�ive per cent of Canadians use �lyers – and by far (90 per cent) they tell us they use the print �lyer. Canadians are embracing newspapers across all devices. Research shows the average Canadian touches newspaper media six times in a day: twice each in print and online, once via tablet and once on a phone. Canadians want newspapers. They also want newspaper ads. They expect newspapers to have ads. And they trust ads in newspapers, both in print and online, more than ads in other media. Why the misperception about newspapers? The data for Canadian newspapers is not the case in the United States. And their bad news spills over the border.

Suzanne Raitt

In the U.S., a city might have one local paper. In Canada, many of our cities have lots of options in terms of newspapers. More papers equals more competition, which keeps the industry on its toes. As such, Canadian papers provide lots of interesting options such as more colour, unique ad shapes and placement, QR codes, multimedia opportunities and more. In the U.S., papers had the opportunity to get sleepy (and they did). Newspapers in Canada are vibrant. About one quarter of all ad dollars spend in media in Canada is spent in newspapers. This roughly matches the amount spent on TV. This is also more than the amount spent on internet advertising. Advertisers clearly agree on the power of newspapers.

We lead the way in print and online.

Korean War Veteran Clarence Dockstader — second from left — and fellow Veterans Gary Phillips, Roy Empey, Brian Wood and Bob Nelson marked the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War at the Ladysmith Cenotaph Saturday, July 6. Dockstader served in Korea aboard the Royal Canadian Navy’s HMCS Crusader during a conflict that claimed the lives of an estimated 2.5 million civilians and 500,000-plus soldiers, including 516 Canadians. Fighting ended July 27, 1960, through the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement, a ceasefire agreement which remains in effect today. Nick Bekolay/Chronicle

YOUR WORDS

“Don’t be surprised if you hear a little bit of everything when you hear us.” Tom Mitchell, Page 10

T

he parade is always such a big highlight of Ladysmith Days, and with the countdown to this year’s event on, it’s time to start thinking about entering a float. The Ladysmith Kinsmen Club, in conjunction with the Ladysmith Days Committee, is inviting local businesses, groups, societies and organizations to participate in this year’s parade, which will take place Saturday, Aug. 3. The theme for Ladysmith Days 2013 is “Friends and Neighbours — Ladysmith Has It All.” The parade lineup will start at 7 a.m. on Aug. 3, while judging will begin at 8:30 a.m., and the parade will start at 10:15 a.m. Ribbons will be presented in a variety of categories, including marching/dancing unit, band, float, decorated bike, best theme entry and “neatest” antique vehicle. There is no entry fee for the parade, and participants will be able to enjoy light refreshments during a reception at Aggie Hall immediately following the parade. The Kinsmen ask that groups who wish to hand out candy or other items during the parade do so by having people walk beside the floats. Parade participants are not allowed to throw anything from their floats while the parade is moving. For more information or to obtain an entry form, contact Mike Sumpter at 250-245-2104 or Duck Paterson at 250-245-2263. You can pick up entry forms at the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce office at 411B First Ave., and Paterson is willing to drop them off to you in person. —Lindsay Chung

Get ready for Hydro rate hikes BC Views

by Tom Fletcher

T

here’s a new sheriff in town for BC Hydro, and it didn’t take long for the political range war to resume. The new sheriff, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett, found himself on the barricades as soon as he got the hugely complex responsibility for energy and mines. His saddlebags bulge with reports on BC Hydro’s seemingly runaway costs, along with Premier Christy Clark’s “core review” to cut $50 million a year from government operations. NDP energy critic John Horgan highlighted the latest BC Hydro troubles in his assault on the B.C. Liberal budget. First there was a $140-million cost overrun on the Northwest Transmission Line, under construction north from Terrace to the tiny Tahltan village of Iskut and adjacent mine properties. Then BC Hydro revealed results of an audit of its earthquake preparedness.

“Condition red” was the key message. Basically, the sprawling utility has disaster plans for each of its dams or other power facilities, but no overall way to get the provincial power grid back up after a major earthquake. Horgan recited his list of BC Hydro sins after a decade of meddling by the BC Liberals: huge deferred debt revealed by the Auditor General, enormous liabilities for private power contracts, and more rate increases that Bennett has already admitted are on the way. And now they can’t even keep us safe from the big one. Bennett fired back. About $2 billion of that debt is for seismic upgrades for the 80-year-old Ruskin Dam in Maple Ridge, and the equally frail John Hart Dam on the Campbell River, built with wooden water pipes. Major BC Hydro works slowed down after completion of Revelstoke and Mica dams in the 1980s, and now the work is more expensive. The Northwest Transmis-

keep rates low through the election, and saw the B.C. Utilities Commission jack up the rate increase to seven per cent to help slow the ballooning debt. What’s ahead for rates? The utility is looking for 32 per cent in the next three years, says energy lawyer David Austin. He calculates that only 2.5 per cent is attributable to increased private power costs. Among other things, BC Hydro needs regional emergency centres capable of functioning after a Japan-sized quake, plus expansion. Bennett came clean on another reason for rate increases — the government’s increasing dependence on taking a “dividend” as BC Hydro’s lone “shareholder.” The newly updated budget tells us this annual “dividend” is past $500 million and rising fast: $545 million this year, $611 million next year and $684 million the year after.

sion Line is a partnership with Imperial Metals, which wants to power its Red Chris copper-gold-silver mine. Bennett said the company is not only paying for the last section to Iskut and the mine site, but pitching in for the main line as well. Ottawa paid $130 million to get remote communities off decades of dependence on diesel generators. AltaGas, owner of one of those private power projects in the region, puts in $180 million to get connected to the grid. The line will open up more mining and hydro possibilities. The cost overrun traces back mainly to the shortage of high-skill labour such as geotechnical engineering that the remote region already faces. And this is before natural gas pipelines and LNG plants gear up. Bennett takes over from the last sheriff, Rich Coleman, who put BC Hydro through the wringer in 2011. Coleman soon abandoned his idea of putting off the Ruskin and John Hart upgrades (again) to

Editor: The Food Bank in Ladysmith serves 350-400 clients every Tuesday between 9 a.m. and noon! For that job, the food bank needs 120 hours of volunteer time each week! The Ladysmith Food Bank is located in the Ladysmith Resources Centre at 630 Second Ave. The Resources Centre’s phone number is 250-245-3079, and entrance to the food bank is at the north end near Buller Street on the lower level. People come to the food bank for various reasons: reduced income due to temporary job loss or changing life circumstances because of illness, accident or divorce. Some need food assistance for a week or a month until their situation improves. Others need to use the food bank for a longer period. One way you could help is to donate non-perishable food items at your church or in the Ladysmith Food Bank bins at Safeway or 49th Parallel grocery stores. Our clients are thankful for peanut butter, cans of meat or tuna, pasta and pasta sauce. You could give dollars to the food bank at the Ladysmith Resources Centre or hold an event to raise money (a concert or hot dog sale) with the proceeds going to the food bank. Our purchasing team watches for sales and arranges for special discounts from suppliers so that the money you have donated provides almost 10 times as much food as our individual buying power. Your donated dollars grow: $10 times 10 equals $100 of nutritious food. Another way to help is to volunteer a few hours per month working at the food bank. You will be given a newsletter full of information about what the food bank does for their clients and a description of each volunteer job. The volunteer co-

Ladysmith RCM-SAR amazed by donation Editor: As a part of Ladysmith Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR)’s ongoing fundraising for a replacement rescue vessel, Ladysmith resident Betty Weibe contacted us and said that after reading a newspaper article as to our needs and activities, she decided to assist in raising funds by selling her homemade fudge in the local area.

After hearing her efforts, I was expecting to hear that she had raised some $60 to $80 or so (in itself, greatly appreciated). Not so — Betty had made and sold $1,100 worth of fudge! Amazing! After talking to Betty, I learned that following the loss of a loved one through a terrible illness, on an annual basis, she, on her own, raises and donates money for local charities. If this is not a perfect example of community spirit, then I do not know what is. RCM-SAR Unit 29, myself, and our whole community should be gratitude to this wonderful lady.

Playing at the amphitheatre in Ladysmith’s Transfer Beach Park is a dream gig for Victoria-based band Roadstars, who’ll be there Sunday, July 14 as part of the Concerts in the Park series. “I’ve been trying to get our band in the venue for a couple of years now,” said guitarist and singer Tom Mitchell, who encourages people to come out and enjoy an evening of outdoor entertainment. “Don’t be surprised if you hear a little bit of everything when you hear us,” he said. “We

prefer to play a variety of stuff.” The four-piece Roadstars are known for their county rock and classic rock but they also enjoy blues and newer rock as well. All four members of the band — guitar players Mitchell and Steve Lezect, bassist Julie Hughes and drummer Vance Anderson — sing and write their own music. Sunday’s show will include well-known audience favourites with a few original songs mixed in. “I think the important thing is just to keep moving forward, keep practising, keep getting better,” said Mitch-

Sports

More than 100 runners conquer Ladysmith GutBuster Ladysmith hosted the third race in the Frontrunners GutBuster Trail Running Series Sunday, July 7 at Transfer Beach. The race — a 16-kilometre long-course run or a nine-kilometre short-course race — featured a beach start, big climbs, awesome views of Holland Creek and the waterfall, and the lung-busting climb to Heart Lake for longcourse runners. In the long-course race, Shawn Nelson of Frontrunners Athletic Club finished first overall with a time of 1:09:52. The shortcourse overall winner was Clay Ward, who crossed the finish line in 41:06. One hundred and thirty-four runners completed the Ladysmith Gutbuster, with 67 finishing the short-course race and 67 completing the longcourse run. For photos and full results, see next week’s Chronicle.

Stz’uminus tournament being hailed as a success Lindsay Chung

THE CHRONICLE

It keeps on growing, and this year’s Stz’uminus Second Annual Soccer Tournament is being hailed as another success. Eight women’s teams and 10 men’s teams from all over Vancouver Island and from the Mainland took part in the tournament, which took place June 29July 1 on various fields around Ladysmith. As well, about 25 youth teams participated in the tournament, with players ranging in age from five to 14. Stz’uminus won the seven-and-under youth championship, while Alert Bay won the 10-and-under championship, and the Squamish Nation Thunder won both the 12-andunder and the 14-andunder titles. The men’s and women’s finals were both a repeat of last year’s final. The Alert Bay Cormorants beat the Cowichan Eagles 2-1 in overtime to claim the men’s championship, while the Alert Bay Thunderettes defeated the Saanich Hurricanes 4-1 to win the women’s title. Organizer Tim Harris is thrilled with the turnout and the weather, and he was happy that Ladysmith Mayor Rob Hutchins and Stz’uminus First Nation councillors Harvey Seymour and Herb Seymour spoke at the tournament. “We were really happy,” he said. “We heard from 49th Parallel Grocery that the tournament brought in a lot of revenue and people shopping. It helps the local community. I saw how busy the local restaurants were.” The tournament is a double-knockout tournament, and Har-

The Alert Bay Cormorants beat the Cowichan Eagles 2-1 in overtime to claim the men’s championship title for the second straight year at the Stz’uminus Second Annual Soccer Tournament in Ladysmith. PHOTO SUBMITTED ris says one of his favourite things during the weekend was seeing a team like the Saanich Hurricanes pull through to make it to the women’s final and also seeing the Cowichan Eagles play so many games to make it to the final and then play so well. Harris was also impressed with the players’ attitudes on and off the field. “The sportsmanship of the players was another great thing to see,” he said. The finals were played at Forrest Field, and Harris says everyone enjoyed playing on the turf field and appreciated the seating for spectators. “It was really packed,” he said. Harris is grateful to everyone who helped make this tournament such a success, including the Stz’uminus First Nation, the Town of Ladysmith, School District 68, 49th Parallel Grocery, Bouma Meats, and accommodations like the Fuller Lake Motel and Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn that offered deals for participants.

“We couldn’t do it without all these people helping out,” he said. He’s also very grateful to his organizing committee. “I can’t say anything about the tournament without recognizing our committee,” he said. “We have a real strong committee, and I can’t say enough. Sue Glenn from the Town of Ladysmith plays a huge role in organizing it from the Town’s perspective. When the tournament comes, our committee does so much running around.” The tournament is non-profit, and Harris feels the fact it is allnative helps build connections within and among nations. “It’s not a fundraiser; it’s just something we do for our people to keep us busy,” he said. “It’s something to look forward to for our youth and something to keep everyone fit. It’s all-native. We only have so many events that we call our own — it’s just about things we can do together and about getting together with other tribes. Soccer’s just a part of it —

it’s really bringing people together, a social event. A lot of people I’m friends with are because of soccer.” The organizing committee is already getting excited for next year’s tournament, which will be held during the Canada Day long weekend. Harris says the tournament is getting bigger and better. “People are knowing more about it every year, and it continues to grow,” he said. “We’re looking at more teams probably next year.” Harris encourages everyone to come out to watch the games next year. “It’s open for everyone,” he said. “It’s not just our tournament —  it’s the town’s. It’s really high-calibre soccer.” Organizing committee member Robin Harris says the tournament is getting bigger, and with that, the committee is always looking for more volunteers. “Every year, we’re growing and there are more participants,” she said. “We’re looking forward to next year.”
