‘Two-spirited’ man inspires understanding

Langford to ticket drinkers in parks

First Nations LGBT youth gain resource in West Shore

Enforcement help added for summer

L

aurie McDonald is looking to help pave the way for aboriginal youth in the LGBT community. As an aboriginal social work instructor at Caring for First Nations Children’s Society who identifies as two-spirited – a First Nations term encmpassing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered – McDonald is sensitive to the needs of such individuals. “Sometimes the word ‘gay’ can associated with derogatory words,” he said. Charla Huber “Spiritism isn’t about sexuality, but a role. Every tribe had a Reporting word for it. In 1996 tribes from the U.S, Mexico, South America and Canada came together to reclaim the use of ‘twospirited.’” Being two-spirited was a natural role of honour, said McDonald, a member of the Enoch Cree First Nation. “It’s a role we were given as a gift and with all gifts you get, there are trials and tribulations.” McDonald, 64, came out to his family when he was a young boy. “Growing up, my family supported me,” he said. It wasn’t until he was sent to the Ermineskin Residential School in Hobbema, Alta. at 12 that his two-spirited nature was looked down upon. “At residential school you had to go underground,” he said. McDonald knew of other two-spirited students who ran away, while others committed suicide.

There is no blind eye to public drinking in Langford. “The parks bylaw has never allowed the consumption of liquor,” said Lorne Fletcher, Langford’s manager of community safety and municipal bylaw enforcement. “Under the Liquor Licensing Act, you can’t consume it in public, period.” Previously, he says, people who were found drinking alcohol in a park may have been told to pour it out. This summer, those caught imbibing in a public park will have to dump it and be handed a $100 fine. “There is a right time and a right place and our parks are not the right place,” Fletcher said. The enforcement stems from residents’ concerns. “We don’t want any glass or alcohol on our beaches,” said Mayor Stew Young. “We want to make our parks as safe as possible. Our parks are family friendly.” Two additional bylaw officers are patrolling Langford this summer, with a range of duties that includes monitoring parks. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

The City of Colwood continues to look at options for sewage treatment and is delving into the possibility of a community treatment plant, separate from the Capital Regional District’s plans. Because of its rate of growth, Colwood has been a complicated player in regional sewage treatment plans. Under plans for the regional plant, the city is being asked to pay not only for current capacity needs, but also for its projected capacity 20 years from now. To potentially avoid this conundrum, the city has been in talks with Capital City Centre to partner on a treatment plant serving both the development and the 14 per cent of Colwood homes currently on sewer, as well as future users. While the plan is still in its

early stages, Coun. Judith Cullington said the research is moving forward. “We’re very much working with CRD and the Ministry of Environment on this one, so we’re not disappearing off on our own,” she said. Capital City Centre also intends to recover heat from the system for reuse and to use tertiary treatment to produce non-potable water for use in toilets and for irrigation. The goal is to have the development’s residents save 60 per cent on energy bills and 40 per cent off water bills. “They’re very keen on it. They were the ones who came to us,” Cullington said. “We had expressed interest for quite some time in doing more inno-

vative sewage treatment.” Affordability is a key component of the plan. The city has said partnering on such a project would not proceed if the projected cost to Colwood taxpayers was more than taking part in the CRD’s proposed sewage treatment system. While no date has yet been set, the Colwood treatment option will eventually be discussed by a committee, then city council. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Long battle over for recognition The creation of a special day to honour Korean War veterans marks the culmination of years of hard work

W

hen, after 60 years of prodding, the first national Korean War Veterans Day is celebrated July 27, Fred MacDonald will be thinking of his brother. Bruce MacDonald was among 516 Canadian soldiers who didn’t come home from the war. He was a machine gunner, killed by the enemy while defending a hill from the Chinese during the Battle of Kapyong, as recounted in John Melady’s quintessential book Korea: Canada’s Forgotten War. MacDonald had only been in Korea for about Kyle Wells a month. Reporting “He got killed April 25, ’51. He had only left Seattle at the end of March,” said Fred MacDonald, who lives in Langford. “Hardly gives you time to look around and see what’s going on. Not very nice.” Last month Minister of Veterans Affairs Steven Blaney, Sen. Yonah Martin and Saskatchewan MP Blaine Calkins announced the adoption of Bill S-213, which created Korean War Veterans Day, to be celebrated annually on July 27, the day the war ended. It’s been a long struggle to gain recognition for the veterans of a war largely ignored at the time and to this day, MacDonald said. “It seems like forever we’ve been trying something, and nothing’s happened.” The Korean War lasted from 1950 to 1953. It was a conflict between Republic of Korea (South Korea), supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), supported by China and the Soviet Union. In the war, which was initially regarded as a police action, 26,000 Canadians participated. MacDonald’s friend, Gary W. Hall, who grew up in Victoria, joined in Feb. 1951. Hall was inspired by the stories his own brother brought back from his time with the Air Force in the Second World War. “When I finished Grade 10, I joined up. I was 17,” Hall said. “At that age your parents had to sign and my mother signed, but my father wouldn’t because he said one son was enough. But eventually he came around.”

Kyle Wells/News staff

Korean War veterans Fred MacDonald of Langford and Gary W. Hall, from Oak Bay, hold up a flag representing MacDonald’s brother Bruce, who died during the conflict. The first ever Korean War Veterans Day will be held on July 27, marking 60 years since the end of the war. A ceremony will be held in Ottawa to mark the anniversary. Fred MacDonald joined the army in 1950 in Peterborough, Ont. and was assigned to artillery. He was stationed in Victoria and shipped out to the war in 1952. He worked in brigade headquarters there and managed to keep away from the front lines, unlike his brother. After Bruce’s death, their mother received his outstanding pay and the Silver Cross in his honour, but nothing more. “I tried to get recognition for him. No way. (The government) wouldn’t even give me a letter saying ‘thanks,’” Fred said. “That’s what makes me mad, too.” When the soldiers returned at the end of the war, or after a one-year rotation, many people didn’t even realize Canada was taking part in the conflict, MacDonald said. “Nobody knew we went, nobody knew we came home, the government didn’t recognize us.” With the day of honour now in place,

“Nobody knew we went, nobody knew we came home, the government didn’t recognize us.” – Korean War veteran Fred MacDonald MacDonald and Hall agreed Martin, who was born in Korea, is largely responsible for helping Korean War vets get the recognition they deserve. “If it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t have any recognition right now at all,” MacDonald said. “She’s the one that’s done it all.” In a press release, Martin wrote, “I owe my life to all those who served and sacrificed in the Korean War. The passage of this bill is one more way of ensuring that future generations remember and honour the sacrifices made by our

Canadian veterans.” Even with the struggles for recognition, the two local veterans believe what they accomplished in Korea was worth the sacrifice. To this day, Koreans are extremely appreciative of what the soldiers did 60 years ago. “It’s akin to the Dutch about the Canadians during the Second World War. Maybe even more so,” Hall said. “Very appreciative.” MacDonald is returning to Korea with other veterans for a visit in November, his third time returning to the country since the war. He will be there for Remembrance Day, which is the intention of the trip. Hall hasn’t returned, but is on the wait list for the November trip, should anyone not be able to make it. As of yet, no celebration is planned for the Greater Victoria area. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

OUR VIEW

Season of fires, water safety here Victoria finally has its summer heat wave, with no signs of letting up, at least into next weekend. For many Greater Victorians that means trips to regional watering holes such at Thetis and Elk lakes, popular beaches like Willows, plenty of barbecuing and catching some rays. If history is any guide, Victoria summers can also be busy time for first responders. At the temperature soars for any length of time, more people, often teens and young adults, put themselves at risk for drowning in boating mishaps, cliff jumping missteps and over-confident swimming skills. Thetis Lake has been the scence for falling injuries and a drowning death every few years. The Sooke Potholes also sees a few broken bones from poorly aimed cliff jumps and the occasional drowning tragedy. These deaths and injuries are preventable, and usually go hand in hand with intoxication, bravado and high temperatures. B.C. had four water-related deaths in the first five days of July, prompting a plea by the Corners Service of B.C. for people to contemplate water safety and to better understand the risks of jumping into unfamiliar rivers and lakes. The Capital Region is a playground of parks, lakes and rivers for summer fun, and most have plenty of information available on hazards. But mostly, safety comes with caution and common sense. The other hot weather disasters waiting to happen are the annual highway-side brush and forest fires. The region’s commuter routes continue to be the region’s ashtray. Flicking cigarette butts into dry grass is a choice people make, and only by fast-acting fire response has the city avoided major property damage from grassfires. More problematic are the city’s prized urban forests and large regional parks. Most of these areas have large fuel loads of deadfall, leaves and brush built up over decades or longer. During these dry days, a careless cigarette or an illicit campfire could spark a major forest fire near residential neighbourhoods. Victoria’s lucky streak is bound to run out one of these summers.

mainly to the shortage of highskill 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 B.C. Hydro through the wringer in 2011. Coleman soon abandoned his idea of putting off the Ruskin and John Hart upgrades (again) to keep rates low through the election, and saw the B.C. Utilities Commission jack up the rate by 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, B.C. Hydro needs regional emergency centres capable of functioning after a Japansized quake, plus expansion. Bennett came clean on another reason for rate increases – the government’s increasing dependence on taking a “dividend” as B.C. 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.

Readers respond: Dan Spinner, Royal Bay, Florence Lake litter Chamber CEO applauded ferry plan

While most of us agree that proper use of land needs to consider the density, it must be looked at in context with the surrounding, already constructed development. After dealing with this issue for almost 10 months, I unfortunately have no choice but to believe that the planning department supported the initial application, which was for 128 units, consisting of two large, seven-floor buildings. The city has certainly provided no evidence to the contrary. The planning department should have simply rejected it, as its scale was so obviously inappropriate. I support an individual’s right to develop their property to its highest and best use, but I also request the planning department has as its primary mandate the protection of the surrounding residents and their investments. This lot is the final piece in a wonderful

Lake litterbug’s act riles beach goer On June 23 I found a mess at the beach access to Florence Lake. This is supposed to be a nice place for people to spend time. There is a garbage can available nearby to keep it clean, but the mess was right beside the can. Would it have been so hard to actually use the garbage can? Then again, the container is rather small, so perhaps the bags would not fit. But it’s hard to believe anyone would be so rude and disgusting as to leave bags of

garbage on the beach. Maybe this person put the bags there thinking they would magically be taken away. Anyone who thinks about it for a moment will realize bags of garbage with food waste inside will eventually be torn apart by otters, neighbourhood dogs and cats, racoons or birds. Whoever is responsible for this should be ashamed of themselves, but I fear that anyone rude enough to do this probably has no consideration for others. Susan Loney Langford

If your eyes get tired or inflamed occasionally, taking eye drops to make them feel better may actually increase the risk of future problems. Your eyes are very precious and delicate. They should never be treated without the advice of your eye care professional. Valuable time may be lost in detecting vision problems if you decide to treat tired or inflamed eyes yourself. It could be that the eye drops feel soothing or you believe washing out your eyes with a home remedy is all you need to relieve a minor eye problem. True, not all inflamed eyes are a sign of something serious, and perhaps the condition will soon alleviate itself. However, any persistent eye problem, even a minor one, should have professional care, as it could be a symptom of something more serious. You should have your eyes examined regularly, even if you’ve never had a problem in seeing clearly. You should have them examined to ensure they remain healthy and function properly.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING The City of Langford is considering an amendment to the Master Development Agreement for all lands within the CD6 (Comprehensive Development 6 – Bear Mountain) Zone. All persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed change to the Master Development Agreement will be afforded an opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting the proposal at a Public Hearing to be held in the CITY OF LANGFORD COUNCIL CHAMBERS, Third Floor, 877 Goldstream Avenue, Langford BC, on Monday, July 15th, 2013, at 7:00pm. Please be advised that no representations may be received by Council after the close of the Public Hearing and any submissions made to Council, whether orally or in writing, will form part of a public record. Proposal: To modify the Master Development Agreement that is registered as a Covenant under Section 219 of the Land Title Act against title to lands within the CD6 (Comprehensive Development 6 – Bear Mountain) Zone so that development proposals for four (4) or more dwellings that are located in areas that are separate or discreet from other residential dwellings may express a form and character other than the Traditional English Arts and Crafts style that is required, provided that all of the dwellings within the development proposal are designed in the same architectural style and that exterior finishes and materials are similar and complimentary.

Workshop builds two-spirit support Continued from Page A1 “If you ran, you were isolated after you were caught. If you lived close enough, you could go home (to reserve) once a month, but if you tried to run you couldn’t go home for a year.” If a child ran from the school their parents could get six

months in prison for sheltering them, he added. “Fortunately it is a lot more accepted now.” McDonald’s partner of 37 years, Peter Dawson-McDonald, wishes there was more acceptance when he was growing up. “When I told my mother I was gay, she asked if I wanted to

see a psychiatrist,” he recalled. “My dad just didn’t talk about it. My mom and dad didn’t put me down, but they just never really talked about it.” Dawson-McDonald, 59, revealed his sexuality to his family at 13. His siblings always supported him, he said, and that was comforting.

Applicant: City of Langford lands within the CD6 (Comprehensive Location: All Development 6 – Bear Mountain) Zone, as shown on the attached sketch. COPIES of the proposed amendment to the Master Development Agreement and all other material that the Council may consider in relation to this Public Hearing may be viewed from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday (holidays excluded) from Friday, June 28th, 2013 to Monday, July 15th, 2013, inclusive, at Langford City Hall, Second Floor, 877 Goldstream Avenue, Langford BC, V9B 2X8.

“We need to be more open with kids and explain to them that it’s OK,” he said. “My sister said, ‘It’s OK and it’s not the end of the world.’ That was more comforting to me than not talking about it.” Caring for First Nations Children’s Society recently hosted its first-ever workshop focusing on accepting and supporting twospirited aboriginal youth. It was organized to coincide with Pride Week in Victoria. Prior to the workshop, a community feast and traditional drumming and songs were shared among participants. “This workshop is sharing the history and identity of twospirited people,” said Kelly Legge, policy analyst for Caring for First Nations Children’s Society. “Two spirit is a special identity. Two-spirited people were leaders in the community, they were mediators, elders and politicians.” Also attending the event were representatives from Hulitan Family and Community Services Society, the Victoria Native Friendship Centre, Island Metis Family and Community Services, Surrounded by Cedar, and various foster parents. “We are going outside of our comfort zone with this,” said Laurie McDonald. “We have started today with a feast and drumming, because this is a celebration of life.” charla@goldstream gazette.com

Wednesday, July 10, 2013 - GOLDSTREAM

Freedom to some 11 year olds might be a trip on a city bus alone. But for Keagan Tait and Isaiah Emerson, it’s spending a month in Amsterdam, parentfree. The Langford boys are members of Children’s International Summer Villages Canada, a charitable, independent non-political organization. They

leave today (July 10) for Amsterdam, where they’ll create a global village with 11-yearolds from other countries including China, Portugal and France. For two weekends they will live with host families in the city to taste the local culture. Digital communication with family is not allowed during their stay – laptops, iPods and cell phones were left behind – but the boys can send post-

connecting with the 48 other kids at the village. “I really want to learn about other cultures,” he said. With so many children from across the globe, Keagan hopes to “learn a bit of another language.” Such trips are a part of life for both boys’ families. Isiah’s sister, Emma, 14, travelled to Portugal with CISV two years ago and is off to Ecuador this summer. Keagan’s mom, Shannon Tait, shared her home with CISV girls from Germany and Mexico at age six and has travelled abroad with Rotary. charla@goldstream gazette.com

The CRD Sewage Plan Is a Failure FACT: It’s not solving the problem; sewage will still go into the ocean. FACT: It uses outdated technology on inappropriate sites. FACT: It fails to fix leaky pipes, meaning we’ll pay millions more than needed to treat clean rainwater. FACT: It’s a band-aid fix that will need more of your taxdollars within 12 years. FACT: The full costs aren’t known, but could be more than $1 billion. This is not affordable. FACT: The CRD sewage plan has lost public support.

Fragrant purple flowers have been the highlight of Linda Dowling’s farm for a quarter of a century. A sea of lavender blows in the breeze at Happy Valley Farm in Langford, which started with 500 cuttings Dowling took off one plant. Now, she grows up to 35 different varieties. She sells fresh lavender, dried lavender and potted lavender plants, as well as dried herb blends and floral teas. Before focusing on lavender, Dowling grew an assortment of herbs, mainly

this little oasis.” With the main lavender harvest happening July 21, she added, anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty of this year’s crop should come prior to that. “You can come and smell it, feel it and see what a lavender field looks like.” The greater farm property, which celebrated its 100th year in 2010, originally belonged to Dowling’s late grandmother, who willed the land to her three grandchildren. “It was a gentleman’s farm just for the family,” said Dowling, who received 2.5 acres. “There was a goat pasture and an orchard.” For information on the farm or its product lines, visit happyvalleylavender. com charla@goldstream gazette.com

Shoreline grows with garden project Students getting used to eating greens at school Don Descoteau

DISTRICT OF METCHOSIN NOTICE OF ANNUAL MEETING

News staff

Lucas Roos can’t quite remember how old he was when he first spied a nasturtium in his family’s garden, picked it, then chomped away on the colourful orange flower. He’s eaten them ever since. And he can hardly wait until the edible plants can be harvested from the new garden on the grounds of Shoreline Community middle school. “I eat them plain,” says Lucas, 11, who just finished Grade 6. Asked what he thinks of the garden idea, he looks at the collection of young apple trees, raised beds stocked with vegetable, herb and fruit seedlings, strawberry plants and more. “I think it’s great.” Three days a week during the summer, he’ll ride his bike or scooter down the hill from his home in View Royal, unlatch the gate, fill up his watering can with the onsite rain barrels and water the plants. That participation is a continuation of the direct student involvement in this project, says Grade 6 teacher Cam Thurbide. “There were 40 kids involved in this from startup to building the boxes,” he says. “They moved about seven yards of soil and moved all the wood chips in here. They’ve probably done about 90 per cent of the work.” Principal Kim Strom says the garden idea grew out of the school’s soup and salad bar program (see Shoreline Food Revolution on Facebook). The school had applied for and received a grant from the Public Health Association of B.C., to facilitate serving farm-fresh produce to students. “That started us thinking ‘maybe we could grow our own fruits and vegetables,’” she says. To help advance the garden and promote getting back to the earth, Songhees First Nation donated three Salish variety apple trees to the school. The school’s student population is 27 per cent aboriginal. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

The list is getting longer for junior B hockey players graduating to the next level for the 2013-14 season. Shawn McBride of the Saanich Braves will suit up for the Victoria Grizzlies of the B.C. Hockey League. And with junior A camps running summer long there will likely be more players from the Braves, Westshore Wolves, Victoria Cougars and Peninsula Panthers to make the jump before the September start to the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. The VIJHL has long been a feeder league for the BCHL. What’s new is the consistent number of VIJHL grads, particularly from Greater Victoria, who are moving on to college. Leading the way is Braves captain Ty Jones, MVP of the VIJHL in 2011-12. The Spectrum Community school grad has finally settled on a school and will play for the University of Oklahoma Sooners

Nick Smith rigs his laser standard prior to a training run at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club in Oak Bay. He is in Hungary for the Balaton Laser Worlds 2013 Championships on Lake Balaton, the landlocked country’s biggest lake. 420 starter dinghy) then to the standard when I was strong enough,” he said. “To be only 17 at this world championship is young, so my expectation is to make the top-60 of the top 150 boats in the world.” Smith is heading into Grade 12 next year and has lots of time to improve. His most promising result this season was at the Midwinter Regatta in Los Angeles where he came 23rd among a

field with the top laser standard sailors from western North America. When he gets to Hungary, he’ll set up a chartered laser with the rigging, lines and sail from his boat at RVYC. “They only provide a hull and it’s my first time chartering a boat. Any time you go to a competition you have to derig your boat for the trailer so it’s not that different.” sports@vicnews.com

Jr. B skaters make offseason noise Travis Paterson

Hesjedal jersey fetches $1,775 Ryder Hesjedal’s race-worn and autographed Tour de France jersey sold for $1,775 on Saturday through eBay. The money goes to the Ryders Cycling Society of Canada, a foundation Hesjedal started to support up-and-coming cyclists in Canada and to promote the sport of cycling in North America. Hesjedal wore the jersey for Stage 5 of the 2012 Tour de France. Bidding closed on Saturday, July 6. “It’s a great way to celebrate the start of the Tour de France and raise funds to support cycling in Canada,” said Cody Graham, director of Victoriabased Media One Multimedia and the RCSC. “Ryder is an inspiration to so many young cyclists and proceeds from this auction will help them in their athletic pursuits. It’s a pretty neat piece of sports memorabilia as well.” To support RCSC visit ryderscyclingsociety.org or to registration for Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria on Sept. 22 see tourdevictoria.com.

Travis Paterson Nick Smith didn’t know he could race at the world championships. The 17-year-old Mount Douglas secondary student applied and qualified in February to race at the Balaton Laser Worlds 2013 Championships in Balatonfüred, Hungary, which start next week. Smith is competing in the laser standard under-21 Men’s World and European Championship category, July 14 to 21. “Once I qualified it changed sailing for me. It’s made me much more devoted to the sport,” he said on Sunday, derigging his boat before flying out on Monday. “In the boat I train three times a week, but once I qualified I added four to five (gym) workouts to boost myself for the world level, and it’s helped.” Smith will be joined by Max Gallant, a teammate from the Royal Victoria Yacht Club junior sailing program in Oak Bay under coach Eric Vanderpol. Together they make up two of the five Canadians headed to Hungary for the laser standard U21 world championships. “There’s only eight of us in total going from North America so I think it’s pretty cool we have two of the eight from Victoria,” Smith said. Gym training has helped the Gordon Head resident grow far more comfortable and hungry, if you will, when racing the 4.2-metre-long boat. “I’ve been a RVYC member since 2008 and moved to the laser radial (from the

in the American Collegiate Hockey Association. Jones spearheaded the Braves’ best season in the modern junior B era as the team finished second in 2012-13 with 30 wins in 48 games and made it to the VIJHL semifinals. The Sooners play in Div. 1 of the ACHA, an alternative organization to the NCAA, albeit a tier below, which has grown leaps and bounds in terms of its on ice product and status, said Braves coach Brad Cook. “We have five guys moving on to college which is pretty exciting, not just for the players and the team but for our league. It’s a huge step in the right direction for us.” Braves committed to play in the ACHA next year are defenceman Chad Roorda to the University of Central Oklahoma Bronchos, and forwards Justin Polischuk and Sam Johnston to the Adrian College Bulldogs in Michigan, which ranked No. 1 in the ACHA last year. More Braves are expected to sign

including Garrett Kemmler, the top defenceman of the year, and forwards Josh Gray and Josh McGladery. Perhaps the most coveted VIJHL player, Brody Coulter, opted not to explore his U.S.A. and Canadian college options and will play for the UVic Vikes of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League. Coulter was the VIJHL MVP in 2012-13 and half of the Cougars’ dynamic duo. The other half was assistant captain Sam Rice, who will join the Braves’ Roorda on the Central Oklahoma Bronchos. “It has been the best four years of my life (with the Cougars) and I am sad that it is over,” Rice said. The Cougars are also expecting to announce additional player advancements this summer, coach Mark Van Helvoirt said. This summer Wade Murphy (185th, Nashville Predators) and Nolan De Jong (197th, Minnesota Wild) were the first two Spectrum hockey academy players drafted to the NHL. sports@vicnews.com

A broken rib suffered in a crash on Stage 1 of the 2013 Tour de France hasn’t stopped Ryder Hesjedal. The Victoria cyclist and Garmin-Sharp team member held strong through the flat stages but slipped in the first two mountainous legs of the tour, Stages 8 and 9 on Saturday and Sunday. Garmin-Sharp teammate Dan Martin won Stage 9 on Sunday but by that time Hesjedal was down 26 minutes from the lead. To his credit, Hesjedal was part of a five-man break which was caught earlier in the day that forced the peloton’s hill climbers to chase them down and ultimately helped Martin win. However, mountains tend to be Hesjedal’s strength, and the 18 minutes Hesjedal dropped back of the lead on Sunday signals a limitation to his output, and an end to his attack on the general classification. His role will now involve helping or protecting Dan Martin and, for Canadian cycling fans, hopefully chasing a stage win. “I have had some discomfort since the crash I was involved in during Stage 1,” Hesjedal said last week. “A scan (July 3) confirmed a fracture so at least now we know what we’re dealing with. A lot of times with rib injuries fractures don’t show up right away, so waiting until today we were able to confirm what’s going on. There’s not much you can do about a fractured rib except for deal with the discomfort so that is what I’ve been doing and will keep doing.”

Volleyball star carries flag at world Universiade games in Russia National team volleyball player Shanice Marcelle, a former Spectrum Community school student, carried Canada’s flag at the opening ceremonies of the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan, Russia, on Saturday. Marcelle and the volleyball team defeated Norway in three straight sets on Sunday and are set to play Brazil today (July 10). Canada sent a record-setting 442 athletes to the Universiade, which are the world university games. Marcelle, a 6-foot-tall outside hitter, was named the top CIS athlete in 2013 and represented Canada in the Pan American Cup in Peru last month. sports@vicnews.com
