Family urges stricter rules for food dyes Daughter’s neuro-toxic reaction to unnatural additives took nearly four years to diagnose Daniel Palmer News staff

There was nothing extraordinary about the first year of Annie Dreilich’s life. She hit the usual milestones, learning how to crawl, mumbling her first words and causing the occasional sleepless night for her parents, Bryan and Kati. But when Annie moved from breastfeeding to solid foods, something changed. Over time, her skin began breaking out in unpredictable rashes. When she turned two, Annie’s hair began to fall out and screaming fits became a near-daily occurrence. “It wasn’t the run-of-the-mill tem“I just felt per tantrum, this was something diffrustrated and ferent,” Bryan said. “My wife and I started weeding out the regular culangry and didn’t prits like dairy and wheat and didn’t know how to help have any luck.” The Dreilichs sought the advice my little girl.” of general practitioners, naturo– Bryan Dreilich paths and allergy specialists, but countless tests and experts failed to identify the cause of Annie’s reactions. “It was heartbreaking,” Bryan said. “There would be mornings when Annie would get up to use the bathroom and go to wash her hands and her skin would have such a bad rash that she’d scream in pain from the water on her hands. I just felt frustrated and angry and didn’t know how to help my little girl.” It took nearly four years before the Dreilichs, in an act of desperation, began researching the harmful effects of food dyes on some children. They eliminated foods with artificial colouring from Annie’s diet and noticed a change within days. After a week without foods like orange cheese, marshmallows or fruit snacks, Annie’s rash began to fade.

Kati and Bryan Dreilich with their five-year-old daughter Annie at Central Park. “This wasn’t something that was mentioned by the doctors to us at all,” Bryan said. “It was like a detox, the whole process took a few months.” The Dreilichs are now urging Health Canada, the federal ministry responsible for testing and approving all food

additives, to create stricter rules for the use of food dyes, and to consider a ban on certain chemicals altogether. PlEASE SEE: Feds won’t ban food colouring, Page A4

Manufacturers not required to disclose specific food colouring Health Canada permits dozens of artificial food dyes that use aluminium, titanium dioxide and charcoal in food products as diverse as sausages, fruit juice and caviar. Health Canada estimates five to six per cent of children suffer from a variety of food allergies, while studies in the U.K. estimate only 0.1 per cent of the general population is affected by artificial food dyes. A 2007 U.K. study published in The Lancet linked the consumption of certain food dyes to hyperactivity in

children, prompting many European countries to phase out their use. Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq said Health Canada has “identified that some people may be sensitive to certain food colours,” but it does not currently require manufacturers to list specific food colours or add warning labels to packaging. Instead, ingredients need only list “artificial colours” for foods using artificial dyes. For a list of permitted colouring agents in Canada, visit bit.ly/1bd1Kvk.

Emergency services were kept busy LAST weekend after a natural gas leak shut down a downtown city block and forced the Victoria Pride parade to reroute. Around 12:20 a.m. Sunday morning, Fortis B.C. received a report of a gas smell near Government and Belleville streets. “A technician was dispatched and did discover there were high levels of natural gas underground in a manhole,” said Michael Allison, Fortis B.C. spokesman. Crews traced the leak to an underground pipe near Humboldt and Government streets, Allison said. Gas was then shut off to 10 customers in the area from 4 a.m.

to about noon. “That allowed crews to bring in excavation equipment to dig and find the source of the leak,” Allison said. Fire and police crews locked down the streets around the Fairmont Empress Hotel, rerouting the pride parade down Broughton and Douglas streets towards James Bay. “Ensuring the area was safe was our number one priority,” Allison said. “Once crews found where the gas was venting from, they managed to vent it safely so that it dissipated quickly.” The Inner Harbour area reopened shortly after 1 p.m. editor@vicnews.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.

Neighbourhood groups applaud Viewfield decision

Sailor, 70, sails non-stop around globe

News staff

Esquimalt and Vic West residents are breathing a collective sigh of relief after battling plans for a sewage sludge plant in their neighbourhood. Last Wednesday, the Capital Regional District abandoned a proposal to place a biosolids plant at Viewfield Road in Esquimalt’s light industrial park, thanks in no small part to the roar of opposition from citizens. “It’s a huge relief to have it resolved, it was a very foolish venture in the first place,” said Diane Carr, Vic West Community Association president. Ensuring their voices were heard by the CRD meant huge time commitments from many residents at the expense of other projects, Carr said. “It’s difficult when you have to put that much energy into something that shouldn’t be happening,” she said. “The CRD has not acted in the interest of the citizens they’re supposed to be serving.” Esquimalt Residents Association cochair Nick Kovacs said he felt like he’d “won the lottery” after CRD directors unanimously rejected the Viewfield site. “I was skeptical right up until the end that the (CRD) board wouldn’t go through with it,” Kovacs said. “It shows that citizens do have a voice, and if there’s something we feel strongly enough about … the CRD will listen.” Kovacs chastised CRD officials for spending $17 million on the Viewfield site and said residents will now turn their attention to the development of McLoughlin Point, where the CRD hopes to begin construction on its wastewater treatment plant before the end of the month. “People are very quickly losing faith in the CRD, and if they keep screwing things up, it could lead to their authority being clawed back by the province,” Kovacs said. Carr said the upside of the Viewfield controversy is it has led to a much better public understanding of the CRD’s $783-million sewage treatment project, a project she initially supported. “I’m now convinced that what the CRD is proposing to do is foolish to an unbelievable degree,” she said. “But what’s that quote from Margaret Mead? ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.’” dpalmer@vicnews.com

Jeanne Socrates, 70, on her sailboat Nereida in Victoria’s Inner Harbour after completing her solo sail around the world, becoming the oldest woman to do so.

A 70-year-old British woman made history in Victoria’s Inner Harbour on Monday morning, becoming the oldest woman to sail solo non-stop around the world. Jeanne Socrates left the Strait of Juan de Fuca on October 22, 2012 on her third attempt at tackling the punishing journey. She already held the title as the oldest woman to circumnavigate the globe on a multi-stop journey. “Everyone asks me what my plans are now. I don’t know, I’ve got too many other things to think about, too many repairs to do,” Socrates said, standing on the port side of her 11-metre cruiser Nereida in the Inner Harbour . The most harrowing leg of Socrates’ journey was at Cape Horn off the coast of South Africa, where her previous journey was cut short by stormy seas. “I was coming down Cape Horn on the identical day at almost the same spot as my knockdown (in 2011),” she said. “It’s so uncomfortable, I’m damp, I’m cold … and you kind of think, ‘Why am I doing this?’” Despite the bruising weather through much of her journey, calm winds forced Socrates to anchor off Vancouver Island for two days before a Prince of Whales boat offered to tow her in. “The boating community is such a supportive group of people. You see the best side of humanity, how human beings should be to each other all the time,” she said. To read more about Socrates’ journey, visit synereida.livejournal.com.

City offers unique workshop for cyclists We’ve heard it too many times - the big one is coming. But it turns out cyclists may be the first people saving the day after an earthquake hits the Capital Region. “Cyclists may be able to access roads, pathways and bridges that vehicles can’t, to help move people, information and materials from one location to another,” said Rob Johns, City of Victoria emergency co-ordinator. To demonstrate just how important two-wheeled travel can be in a disaster response, the City of Victoria and the Greater Victoria Cycling Coalition are partnering to present the Inaugural Tour de Disaster -- Cyclist Emergency and Disaster Response Rally on Saturday, July 27 from 9

File photo

Cyclists could get around in an earthquake event. a.m. to noon. Part cycling rally, part emergency exer-

cise, the Tour de Disaster will include up to 40 cyclists working their way through a series of tasks such as moving supplies, searching for lost individuals and conducting damage assessments within a local neighbourhood – all while navigating through a simulated damaged or congested transportation system. The Tour de Disaster will start and end at the Topaz Park parking lot located off Glasgow Street. The event will also serve as an emergency communications exercise for Victoria Emergency Management Agency volunteers. Pre-register for this free event before July 23.

They enlisted the help of Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca MP Randall Garrison, who wrote to Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq in November. Garrison urged Aglukkaq to recommend banning artificial food dyes in schools and phase out other chemicals. In her response letter, Aglukkaq wrote: “To date, departmental scientists have not identified scientific data to rescind approval of food colours in Canada. If the department were to identify a health risk associated with an already approved additive, including an approved food colour, we would take action.” Aglukkaq pointed Garrison to a 2010 consultation done by Health

Canada on food additives, but the final report from that consultation has never been released. If it does anything, Health Canada is likely to recommend stricter disclosure of artificial food dyes rather than an outright ban. That’s not good enough for the Dreilichs, who believe the complexity of food additives shouldn’t be left up to the knowledge of the consumer. “This isn’t like a kid reacting to peanut butter. Annie, now 5, has a neurotoxic reaction to unnatural additives, they’re not even food ingredients,” Bryan said. To learn more about food dyes, visit cspinet.org/fooddyes or search for “food additives” on Health Canada’s website. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Keys to a happy city Daniel Palmer News staff

The height of tourist season is upon Victoria, when scarcely an intersection along Government Street is without at least a few street performers. But two particularly enticing public curiosities are helping the audience take centre stage for the second consecutive year, thanks to one motivated Victoria teenager. Make Me Sing is an outdoor piano project spearheaded by Reynolds secondary graduate Alastair Kierulf, who imported the idea after playing a public piano in London, England. “I wasn’t sure how it would go, reaching out to the public and asking them to play the piano in an open square,” Kierulf says, reflecting on last summer’s enthusiastic response from otherwise-dormant musicians. “A lot of people can play the piano, but a lot of people don’t have access to a piano, and this project provides the opportunity to play, even if you just know a few notes.” At any given time, one person might be tinkering with the keys while the next person could be mastering Chopin or Rachmaninov. The pianos sit in Centennial Square at Government and Fisgard streets and at the corner of Government and Belleville streets, near the B.C.

ing several homeless people take to the pianos to play beautiful pieces last year at CRD Square. “One of the guys said to me, ‘I haven’t played a piano in three years, but this is so great,’” he says. In the mornings, when Kierulf removes the rain covers from the pianos, he takes a few minutes to play mostly for joggers passing by. “One thing I noticed, is even if I didn’t put the cover over in the night, somebody would do that. It was really great to see the public take on the pianos as their own and look after them.” Similar projects are taking place in Vancouver, Toronto and other North American cities this year, and Kierulf plans to pass the project torch to other Reynolds students next summer.

OUR VIEW

The season of fires and water safety 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.

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.

Esquimalt streamlining community safety functions Don Descoteau News staff

Laurie Hurst knows the ins and outs of policing in Esquimalt as well as anyone outside the Victoria Police Department. Esquimalt’s chief administrative officer has overseen the file for the past three years. She guided the Township through the tendering of its policing contract, and the logistical followup to Justice Minister Shirley Bond’s decision to stick with VicPD for Esquimalt’s police services. As of this fall, however, the administration of a new policing contract will fall within the purview of a new director of community safety services. The new position is part of an organizational change at Esquimalt that will consolidate all civic functions related to community safety – policing, bylaw enforcement, building inspection and emergency preparedness – under one roof. “Before, it was fractured,” Hurst said, noting the latter three functions have been the responsibility of three different department heads. “By bringing all of what I consider to be

community safety functions under one person, you automatically get a more streamlined approach to community safety issues.” The Township began the restructuring last year when it made the bylaw enforcement position full time. “I think the community saw an improvement in our reaction time and our ability to address issues,” Hurst said. The new organizational structure, expected to be largely in place by the time the new director is hired, will provide residents and businesses with a more customer service-oriented approach, she added. “It’s all about how quickly we can respond to issues.” While having a full-time bylaw enforcement officer hasn’t yet paid for itself in extra ticket revenue, it has helped erase the backlog of bylaw complaints and improved the rate of collections. As part of the reorganization, Hurst said, the Township is in the process of setting up a follow-up response and collection system for fines. She expects a far higher recovery rate will result. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

LETTERS CRD chair should resign The Capital Regional District leadership is in crisis. A real estate purchase that wasted $17 million of our hard-earned tax dollars is just the last disgrace in the ongoing CRD sewage fiasco. The established protocol in British Columbia is that leaders are accountable for their major screw-ups by way of resignation: ■ Fantasy Gardens: Bill Vander Zalm resigns. ■ Bingo-gate: Mike Harcourt resigns. ■ Fast Ferries: Glen Clark resigns. ■ HST: Gordon Campbell resigns. CRD Sewage Fiasco: CRD Chair Alastair Bryson’s response to calls for Denise Blackwell’s resignation is that he has “full confidence in the role and position she is serving in for the CRD and that I will not be asking for her resignation.” Perhaps it’s Bryson who should be resigning. In B.C.

that is the only means by which public trust can be restored. Tim Morrison Councillor, Township of Esquimalt

City’s silence appears ominous In February I delivered a letter to Victoria council asking why a standard fixed girder bridge had not been considered to replace the Johnson Street bridge, knowing that there is so little traffic now as compared to the time when the bascule was built in the 1920s. I was informed it had been referred to a manager I haven’t had a reply from him. It’s a lack of courtesy, and ominous too. Dennis Parsons Victoria

Closure a step backward Re: Feds cut astronomy outreach (News, June 26) To abandon science is to

abandon society. Does anyone look at the past to see what has happened to a society that abandons science and research? Medicine and the welfare of our society has only come about because of research and science. The whole of humanity is 2,000 years behind, because the elite in charge have no vision past the pocketbook. To abandon any science is to reject the world for the sake of making the present livable. This is insane. The elites with no vision are taking us to the abyss to farther retard us another 1,000 years. What is wrong? Stan St. Louis Victoria

The City of Victoria received top accolades from the Planning Institute of B.C. for its Official Community Plan last week. The Gold Award for Excellence recognizes significant projects that enhance the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of communities, and demonstrate meaningful public consultation in policy development. The OCP was adopted by council in 2012 after more than two years of public consultation and policy development. The City’s previous plan was last updated in 1995.

The Red Cross is one of many agencies and groups of people who have come out to help. “There were more volunteers than there were jobs for them to do,” Vogan said. The deployment is the first for Vogan, who said it has been rewarding to help people within Canada during an emergency. “I’ve never seen disaster,” Vogan said. “It’s been a lot of hard work but it’s really rewarding to know you’re helping somebody, even by giving them a bottle of water, or just listening to their story. “Everyone is just so thankful for it too. They cry a lot.” Vogan was scheduled to return to Victoria last Friday. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Victorians are among the kind souls from across the country volunteering to help Alberta with flood recovery. Efforts in southern Alberta continue after flooding devastated areas in and around Calgary starting on June 20. Among those pitching in is Lindsay Vogan, a public relations employee for the Sooke School District and West Shore Chamber of Commerce. A volunteer with the Victoria’s Red Cross communications team, she got the call on June 26 and was told she would fly out in two hours. On July 2, Vogan was in High River, where a provincial state of emergency was still in place. “The water is just receding so slowly,” Vogan said. “They’ve just lost everything. “Mostly they’re just happy that they’re safe … The most vulnerable people are the

worst hit. Like the elderly people, it’s really hard for them, or people that just don’t have a lot of support.” Damages in Calgary and other communities range from flooded basements and lower floors to homes being completely gutted as a result of water damage. Vogan estimated a third to half of High River was still under water. Volunteers have been working every day for eight to 16 hours, providing support to people in need and other agencies, Vogan said. Assessment has been another major job, determining what people need and how to go about with the clean up. “Non-stop. It’s pretty amazing,” she said. Residents from different zones in the community are allowed to return to their homes to assess damage and recover items, but because sewage, electricity and other utilities are still down, people are still in shelters or with

Health authority urges caution around bats

✂BUY 1

100% locally owned

PREMIUM TOUCHLESS

The Vancouver Health Authority is asking residents to avoid contact with bats, due to an increased risk of rabies. Bats are the primary carriers of rabies in the province. The health authority warns people to avoid physical contact with bats, and to seek immediate medical attention if they have been bitten by, or had any physical contact with a bat. While rabies can be prevented with a vaccine after exposure to the virus, immunization is ineffective once symptoms develop. Rabies is rare among humans. There have been only two human cases of rabies in B.C. residents since 1985 – both linked to a bat strain of the virus – and both fatal. Even if the disease is rare, exposures to bats are frequent. Dr. Dee Hoyano, medical health officer for the health authority, urges people – especially those with children – to be careful and vigilant. “The best way to avoid rabies exposure is to avoid direct contact with bats. Bats are not pets; they are wild animals that can be dangerous at times. “Children and adults need to know that bats should never be directly touched or picked up, whatever the condition of the bat – dead or alive,” Hoyano added. For more information on rabies go online to bccdc.ca, call HealthLink B.C. by dialing 811 or view the B.C. HealthFiles on rabies at healthlinkbc. ca. editor@vicnews.com

Soil concern sparks federal request hazardous. “Soil that would be unacceptable for disposal on Vancouver Island would be soil that is classified as hazardous waste as defined by the British Columbia Hazardous Waste Regulation (HWR).  No hazardous waste has been identified in the sediments being remediated,” said Sébastien Bois, media relations for Public Works and Government Services.

Resident concerns over trucking contaminated soil into Highlands sparked council to seek a second look. Highlands council is asking the federal government to provide an independent, professional third-party assessment of the landfill’s design and monitoring systems since 150,000 cubic metres of contaminated sediment started making its way to the landfill June 17. The soil is part of the Esquimalt Graving Dock waterlot remediation project. It will be disposed of in the Highwest Landfill on Millstream Road, operated by Tervita Corporation. “Waste will be transported to the High7.3125" X trucks 10" that have sealed west landfill in

Over the course of two weeks, the group of youth put together the entire show, complete with memorizing lines, learning the songs, the dancing, blocking and everything else that goes along with putting on a musical. the students routinely rehearse for seven to 10 hours a day. “It’s wonderful to see how they develop over the two weeks,” said musical director Phil Hallman. “How some of the shyer kids come out of their shells and some of the more outgoing kids really hone their skills … besides learning new skills, one of the big things they learn is huge selfconfidence.” the musical, which is an adaptation of the 1980 movie, follows the lives of students at the New york High school of Performing arts.

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

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

IN BRIEF

Restaurant owners win $15,000 prize Daniel Caicedo and Beatriz Carmona, owners of La Fogata Latina at 749 View St., were all smiles last week as they accepted the $15,000 prize in the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce’s Boost Your Business contest. The basket of goodies they received from Chamber board chair Darlene Hollstein was filled with certificates for professional services provided by Chamber members, including advertising, training and travel.

Call for nominations for building awards Projects completed between June 1, 2012 and May 31 of this year are eligible for the Victoria Real Estate Board’s 22nd annual Commercial Building Awards. Last week the board announced the call for nominations for the 2013 competition, which culminates at the awards gala Nov. 22 at the Union Club. Nomination forms and criteria are available at cba.vreb.org. Entries must be received by 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 17.

Vancity recertifies as living wage employer Vancity Credit Union has extended its certification as a living wage employer to Greater Victoria and the Fraser Valley. The organization was recognized recently by the Community Social Planning Council, whose Community Action Plan on Poverty calculated the 2013 living wage in the region to be $18.73 an hour. “Paying a living wage – one that reflects the actual cost of living – is an important and achievable poverty reduction strategy for us and many employers,” Vancity senior vice-president of operations, Ellen Pekeles, said in a release.

Security firm expands downtown protection Themis Security’s recent purchase of Capital Region Protection Services has helped Themis create more of a presence in the downtown core, said owner Mirko Filipovic. Themis is developing a new model for working with a group of more than 50 downtown merchants who have come together to address their security and safety challenges. The joint model is more economical than individual businesses taking on the task themselves, Filipovic said.
