Deal signals city, band relationship on upswing Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR
There was a mutual feeling of relief and optimism after the city and the Campbell River Indian Band signed a new 10-year municipal services agreement on Tuesday. “This wasn’t an easy agreement,” admitted Chief Bob Pollard of the Wei Wai Kum First Nation. Earlier this year, both Chief Pollard and Chief Ralph Dick of the Cape Mudge Indian Band criticized the city for the poor working relationship between the municipality and the bands. However, with Tuesday’s agreement, it appears things are improving between the city and the Campbell River band. Everyone from city council – with the exceptions of councillors Andy Adams and Ryan Mennie who couldn’t make it – attended the signing held in the We Wai Kum council chamber. “In lieu of good fences, we have a good agreement…and that also Continued on A4

makes for good neighbours,” said Mayor Walter Jakeway. As well, the fact that city council signed the agreement on the We Wai Kum’s land was hugely symbolic in terms of moving forward in a positive manner. “This is a significant pact which enhances the relationship between the municipality and the
band – we need to celebrate this,” said band manager Ken Cooper, who added the agreement shows leadership to other B.C. municipalities and First Nations which are also going through the difficult process of signing service agreements. Under the agreement, which runs until Dec. 31, 2023, the band will pay city rates for water and sewer ser vices.
The We Wai Kum will also receive fire protection, animal control and building inspection for commercial properties. As well, the band and the city have also agreed to pool funds collected prior to the signing of the renewed agreement to build sidewalks and install lighting along 16th Avenue within two years. Approximately $258,242 was collected as
development cost charge equivalent payments related to construction on Wei Wai Kum leasehold property. Within two years of the agreement, approximately $190,000 will be spent by each party. The Band will pay for the upgrades from Ironwood to Dogwood, and the city will be pay upgrades from Walmart to Ironwood. The remaining balance
shall be contributed by each party toward construction of a sidewalk along Spit Road, including a pedestrian-activated cross walk signal at the Net Loft crossing. The city is also working out a new services agreement with the Homalco First Nation – the current agreement has expired. The services agreement with the Cape Mudge Indian Band expires in 2015.

Raise available for CUPE, if budget cuts are found Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
Local CUPE education workers have voted to strike as the second week of summer vacation for most students comes to a close. CUPE workers have not had a wage increase since 2009 and are looking for an agreement similar to what other public sector employees have achieved. “C U PE e du c at i on
workers want a fair settlement with the provincial government,” said Colin Pawson, chair of the CUPE B.C. K-12 presidents’ council. “Without any adjustments of wages for more than four years, it is time the people who keep our children’s schools working are respected.” But what CUPE workers are looking for will have to come from the provincial government’s Cooperative Gains Man-
date, under which B.C. school districts are asked to come up with ways to fund wage increases locally through budget savings. The savings are intended to free up funding for pay increases for support staff in schools. Former Education Minister Don McRae last winter asked all school districts across the province to come up with a 1.5 per cent savings in district operations and to submit the savings
plan by January 15. He also said that the savings must not impact educational programs. However, School District 72’s board of education fired back in a letter dated January 15 that it would be impossible to provide a savings plan that would not impact students and indicated the board would be submitting a zero savings plan. Now, following on the heels of a CUPE strike
vote (Campbell River’s CUPE local 723 voted June 26) the board is reiterating that it simply cannot afford to pay for wage increases. “As a board of education we support a fair wage settlement for all of our employee groups,” wrote Michele Babchuk, on behalf of the board, to current Education Minister Peter Fassbender. “However, as we indicated in our letter dated January 15, 2013,
Regional board agrees to cooperate with city request for annexing information Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
The Strathcona Regional District will hand over information the city needs to consider annexing Area D though the area director says her constituents want nothing to do with joining the city. The board of directors, at its meeting Wednesday afternoon, elected to give the city information such as geospatial data, property assessment value, service budgets and other information as part of an extensive study into the feasibility of the
city extending its southern boundary to take in residents between Jubilee Parkway and Henry Road. A re a D D i re c tor Brenda Leigh wanted the board to deny the city’s request for information and put an end to the process, saying Area D residents like the rural setting they’ve chosen to make their home. “We do not want to join Campbell River,” Leigh said. “Every molecule of my body does not want to join Campbell River.

bell River but I love the countryside, I love our atmosphere, I love the rural character of our community. I think this move by Campbell River is completely disrespectful of me as a director who has served this area, and for the residents.” Mayor Walter Jakeway took exception to Leigh’s statements and said the city is only considering annexation as a way to provide sewer service to Area D – a service residents indicated they wanted in a 2006 referendum in which residents voted in favour of borrowing money to
hook up to the city’s system, though at the time joining the city was not on the table. Rather, the city would have extended its service outside its boundary. “Campbell River gets nothing by taking over Area D, we’re trying to help Area D get sewer service,” Jakeway said. “If you don’t want your people to ever get sewers, then proceed.” Other directors were in favour of the regional district providing information to the city but thought the regional district should in turn bill

Mayor puts brakes on downtown tax exemption bylaw Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
Council held off on adopting changes to the city’s downtown tax exemption bylaw Tuesday night on the advice of the mayor. Currently, improvements on facilities located within a special commercial area in and around the St. Ann’s block are eligible for a commercial tax exemption of 50 per cent on building improvements for
three years. The city wants to change that to increase the tax incentive to 100 per cent for five years to encourage development in the downtown core. The exemption is triggered if renovations to an existing building cause the value of the building to increase. But Mayor Walter Jakeway said he was voting opposed to the changes because he believes the general tax exemption area which runs from Highway 19A near 5th Avenue to the
south and to Roberts Reach and Highway 19A to the north, should be expanded. “I believe the area being considered is too small,” Jakeway said. “I believe it should be going from the Maritime Heritage Centre to the bridge (over the Campbell River in Campbellton).” Jakeway also didn’t like the idea of passing all three readings of a bylaw amendment at the same meeting and he thought the exemption was
too much. “I believe the 100 per cent exemption is too high, it should be 70 per cent,” Jakeway said. “I also have a problem approving a bylaw on the first time seeing it.” Coun. Larry Samson agreed and made a motion to give only first and second reading of the bylaw change, which was subsequently approved by council. The bylaw likely will be up for third reading in two weeks. If approved,
new and re-developed multifamily complexes, and new or re-developed commercial buildings within the downtown general tax exemption area would be eligible for the tax incentives. A LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum or Goldrated building located within the St. Ann’s block special commercial area would be eligible for the 100 per cent tax exemption for seven years.

the city for its time. “If the regional district is going to involve planning staff time, administrative staff time, financial staff time, since the City of Campbell River, which has initiated this move to amalgamation, then the City of Campbell River, or perhaps the province, should be paying for our time,” Director Jim Abram (Quadra Island) said. However, Acting Chief Administrative Officer Tom Yates explained the process would not be “too onerous” and likely would not take too much staff time. Director Ron Kerr also pointed out that the city pays the bulk of the contributions from all of the electoral areas to the Strathcona Regional District, so the city would potentially be paying itself. A vote on billing the city was subsequently defeated by the board. But Leigh continued to push for the regional district to not get involved in the city’s business. “This is a tax raid and nothing more,” Leigh said. “I’m pretty sure there’s going to be a major wake up call for Campbell River when they see the results (of a referendum).” Director Claire Moglove said it was in Area D’s best interest to have the regional district provide the city with the information so that affected residents can make an informed decision. “You either want accurate information for the regional district residents or you don’t. This is the most frustrating discussion I’ve had in two weeks,” said Moglove, referencing the stalemate at the last board meeting between the four rural area directors on where to hold a public hearing on Cortes Island. “I know that this subject is quite emotional for Director Leigh. I used to live in Area D so I understand. The residents of Area D need to know, ‘if we join the city our taxes will go up this much or our cost for sewer and water will be this much.’ In order for the information to be accurate, the regional district needs to provide information to the city. If the information does not come from the regional district, the city will get it elsewhere and it may not be accurate.” A consulting firm will conduct its feasibility study through the summer and then hold a public consultation meeting in the fall.
Business expansion approved despite concerns FRIDAY, JULY 12, 2013 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |
Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
Council Tuesday night granted trucking company Bailey Western Star a permit to expand its business despite complaints from a Campbellton group. Darr yn Striga, on behalf of the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association (made up of Campbellton residents and businesses), told council to hold off on making a decision to grant a major development permit to expand Bailey Western Star’s business. The permit will allow the company, which specializes in truck repair and servicing, to build a vehicle wash bay as well as a two-storey indoor shop area. “I want to make it clear that I’m not here tonight to suggest the permit be denied,” Striga said. “On the contrary. Bailey
Western Star is a very long-term community business in the Campbellton area and their success should rightfully be applauded. I do in fact wish to see their business grow. “That being said, I feel it is incumbent upon the city when considering the development permit application to ensure that Bailey Western Star remain a positively contributing corporate citizen of our community.” Striga then proceeded to show a slideshow of photos of large trucks parked along the side of the road in and around Redwood Road. “The activity generated by the success of Bailey Western Star often results in large vehicles being parked on the road, limiting visibility and depleting the aesthetics of the area,” said Striga who flipped to another photo. “This image shows a large

truck parked alongside a house, though in the interest of being candid I cannot confirm for a fact that this truck or trailer is owned by Bailey Western Star, just the proximity to the business.” When contacted by the Mirror, Bailey Western Star did not want to comment but a staff member did say the trucks parked along the side of the road are not the company’s, but rather, customers’ vehicles. Striga said the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association did an extensive survey on the walkability, mobility, security, assets and liability of the area and encouraged council to take a look at the study before making a decision on Bailey Western Star’s permit. Striga also suggested the city first consider its own walkability study which was recently conducted. Striga said some of the suggestions to improve
10 more audits to give away on a first-come, first-served basis for Campbell River residents. The rebates are valued at $150 plus tax and cover the cost of an energy assessment conducted by a certified energy advisor. “By participating in this program,
the area around Bailey Western Star are to paint the curb to create a noparking zone and plant some trees and shrubs around the property line. “I’m asking council merely to defer the matter until the content of a walkability study can be examined or until you choose to view what the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association has assessed,” Striga said. C ouncil, however, chose to proceed with the application and issued Bailey Western Star its major development permit. Coun. Claire Moglove said issues such as beautification and traffic should be dealt with at the building stage and are not relevant to the development permit application. “This is a major development permit application and if it fits within the zoning, if it fits within the form and charac-
home owners will learn ways to reduce energy use, add value to their home, and help lower greenhouse gas emissions in Campbell River,” says Amy van den Hooven, project coordinator. For more, see www.campbellriver. ca/residents/greencity.

ter guidelines, then it fits within the form and character guidelines,” Moglove said. “I will have some questions for staff in terms of a landscape plan but I don’t think to defer until a walkability assessment report has a bearing on whether or not a development permit goes forward on an area that is zoned for the use in which is it being proposed. I did hear the concerns raised but I don’t think denying the development permit at this stage is the way to alleviate those concerns.” Coun. Ron Kerr, who has the Campbellton portfolio, disagreed. “This one little neighbourhood is an area basically where trucks rule and in terms of walkability and public safety, it’s not been taken into consideration,” Kerr

Working through their differences The simplest gesture sometimes holds great significance. That was the case Tuesday when Campbell River City council had the good grace to sign an agreement in the council chambers of the We say: City Campbell River Indian Band. The politicians along with the band officials show manager and city bureaucrats were there willingness to to put their names on a new 10-year services agreement between the city and the cooperate band. That’s important. More significant though was the fact the mayor and coun-
cillors left the high ground of their own council chambers to honour all members of the Campbell River Band on the home reserve of the We Wai Kum First Nation. The agreement and the gesture show the two sides can work together guided by policy and goodwill to make this a better community for all. It’s also a sign of good faith to the Cape Mudge and the Homalco First Nations that the city is willing to listen and bargain as their services agreements come up for renewal. And the gesture couldn’t have come at a better time. Earlier this year, the chiefs of both the Cape Mudge and Campbell River bands blasted the city for what they viewed as a
lack of co-operation and respect for both bands’ respective economic development initiatives. That was the last thing the city needed, to be fighting with the First Nations communities, when Campbell River is ready to boom with the big new hydro and hospital projects as well as downtown redevelopment. Everyone needs to be a part of this economic growth and that’s why Tuesday’s signing was so significant. We commend the leaders of both sides for working through their differences. They have come to a mutually beneficial agreement that paves the way for more co-operative efforts which benefit everyone in this community.
Point of View
Authorities did their job
Two people were charged last week in one of the most disturbing terrorist plots to be hatched on Canadian soil. John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody were arrested July 1 on terrorism-related charges after the planting of disabled pressure cooker bombs outside the legislature in Victoria. Yet, only days later, civil libertarians were calling for more detail on how police investigated the Canada Day bomb plot, to see if officers came too close to entrapping the accused Surrey couple. Doubts have grown in some minds about the pair’s ability to carry out an act of terrorism as more information emerged about their impoverished life, living on social assistance without a vehicle and getting methadone treatment for drug addiction. Police say they became “self-radicalized” to support the Al-Qaeda ideology and posed a serious threat to kill or maim people. Micheal Vonn, policy director for the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said the concern is that undercover officers may have interacted with the suspects to further the plot and provide assistance. Vonn sees parallels to the “Mr. Big” investigations where officers pose as a crime boss and his henchmen, and goad a suspect to say or do incriminating things in order to become part of the organization. It is hard to imagine two people voluntarily agreeing to be involved in a plan to kill and wound hundreds of Canada Day revellers. Kudos to the Canadian secret service and the RCMP for doing their jobs – the protection of innocent people. – Black Press
Logging roads, forest recreation sites are not dumps
Out On A Limb @AlstrT
I managed to get a night’s camping in last weekend at Amor Lake, one of the bodies of water northwest of Campbell River that is part of the Sayward Forest Canoe Route. Rather than paddle out onto the lake – which is fast becoming one of my favourite lakes in the region – and camp on one of the wilderness sites on its shore, we decided to park and camp at the B.C. Recreation Site at the access boat launch off of Blackwater Lake Road. There are two or three campsites on the south side of the creek draining Amor Lake. They’re pretty nice but I was not impressed by the garbage left by previous campers. It wasn’t a lot but it was completely unnecessary to leave what was there. I mean how hard is it to toss a
battery package into a garbage bag rather than on the ground? I really like (that’s sarcasm) how the previous campers had themselves a good old bonfire but obviously misjudged how much wood they needed and left behind about 10-15 chunks of partially burnt logs. If they had used half that amount of wood, they could have burnt it all and left nothing but ash. There was so much wood still left in these chunks that we used a little bit of the wood I had brought from home to start a fire and then burnt these charcoal leftovers for the rest of the evening! I really shake my head and wonder about people’s attitude towards the local environment. The old adage is carry it in, carry it out. That seems to be too much
trouble for some people. It’s particularly applicable to drive-in campsites. The wilderness sites are pristine because people who will make that kind of effort to camp in the wild generally care about the environment. But the drive-in sites are a mess. And what does that say about the people who use them? Well, I can leave that to you to conclude. There’s a local group of great people who have taken to cleaning up the local logging roads where people have been dumping piles of garbage for years. Shame the Logging Road Dumpers should be knighted for their efforts. These people are taking their own time, sweat equity and money to clean up the garbage piles being dumped on our logging roads by people who are
too lazy or cheap to take garbage to the dump or recycling facilities. The same lack of respect is shown for some of the recreation sites, at least the smaller, less popular ones. These recreation sites are a great amenity. Sure, some of them are “primitive” as they say but the off-the-beaten-track nature of some of them is part of the appeal. They’re not provincial parks but some of the locations are as nice as any park. Users need to take more ownership of them because they’re not serviced to the same level as provincial parks. The province has started sinking more resources into them in recent years and that’s good but there’s still an onus on users to pick up their garbage. It’s not too much to ask.

Since the launch of the portal in November of 2011, the site has profiled the capabilities and capacities of local suppliers of construction equipment, processes, labour and support services through a searchable database that uses construction and contracting industry coding.

After discussing with BC Hydro, partners involved in the North Island Hospitals Project and other major project contractors and in consultation with local real estate advisors, it was determined that there would be a benefit served by using the Major Projects Portal
site to provide information about suppliers of various types of rental accommodation in Campbell River and the surrounding area. This allows suppliers of accommodation to promote their rentals to the major bid proponents and project managers of these major construction projects. Once accommodation suppliers have registered and paid a one time registration fee of $50, they will be able to profile, update and modify their available accommodation 24/7 on an ongoing
NOTICE OF REVITALIZATION TAX EXEMPTION Pursuant to section 227 of the Community Charter, Council for the City of Campbell River gives notice that Council proposes to adopt Downtown Revitalization Tax Exemption Bylaw No 3506, 2013.

Community Foundation for their generous donation towards our new gardening program. Earlier this spring Marine Harvest gave us a dozen fish totes which we needed to make our new raised garden beds. We installed these new beds with a lot of hard work from our gardener, Vince Wood. The beds are the perfect height for our residents who have mobility issues. They can now sit on their walkers or in their scooters and garden to their hearts content. The gardens here at Willow Point Supportive Living have become quite a social meeting place not only for our residents but also for the community. Many stroll the grounds and enjoy seeing whatever is in bloom at the time. Over the past few years we have won two garden awards of which the residents are quite proud and so they should be, as they helped with a number of the tasks. The contribution from Campbell River Community Foundation will go towards installing paths around the new beds. These are being built with the help of several volunteers from the Storey Creek Golf Course. Our gardeners are eagerly looking forward to the flowers and vegetables they will be able to grow. Many thanks to all those who have helped to make our new gardens a reality. What a wonderful community we live in. – Terry Fulton on behalf of the residents of Forde House
Don’t get ticked off this summer Now that summer is here, many of us will be heading into the great outdoors to enjoy hiking, camping and other recreational activities. If you’re spending time in tall grass, brush or wooded areas, you may be exposed to insect or tick bites. Ticks are tiny arachnids that feed on the blood of humans and animals and in very rare cases, can transmit disease-causing bacteria. While less than 1% of ticks in BC carry the bacteria that can cause Lyme disease, the condition can be serious for those infected. “There are a number of precautions you can take to protect yourself against tick bites,” says Dr. Dee Hoyano, Medical Health Officer for the Vancouver Island Health Authority. “First, make sure you’re coveredup; wear light-coloured clothing including a long-sleeved shirt that you can tuck into your pants and then tuck your pants into your boots or socks.” Other steps you can take to protect yourself against tick and insect
bites: n Walk on cleared trails wherever possible. n Apply insect repellent containing DEET on all uncovered skin and reapply as directed. n Carefully check clothing, scalp (whether wearing a hat or not) and any exposed skin when leaving an area where ticks might live. n Regularly check pets for ticks. “Ly me dis e as e is uncommon on Vancouver Island,” adds Dr. Hoyano. “The disease can be serious however, so it’s worth taking steps to avoid being bitten.” Ticks are easiest to spot when they are actually sucking blood. The feeding tick’s mouth will be under the skin, but the rest of it (which is bluegrey in colour) will be visible. A tick should be removed carefully, without crushing it. To find out more about ticks or what to do if you find one: n Healthlink BC: http://www.healthlinkbc. ca/healthfiles/hfile01. stm. What should I do if I
find a tick on my skin? If you find a tick on your skin, you will need to remove it as soon as possible. Check your whole body and clothing. Do not stop when you find one tick. When to get a doctor to remove the tick You should see and ask your health care professional to remove the tick if it has buried itself deep into your skin. Removing a tick If you can remove the tick yourself, follow these instructions. n Use tweezers to gently get a hold of the tick as close to its mouth as
possible. The body of the tick will be above your skin. Do not touch the tick with your hands. Wear gloves if possible. Steadily lift the tick straight off the skin. Do not squeeze the tick because this can force its stomach contents into the wound and increase the chance of an infection. Do not jerk, unscrew or twist the tick because this may separate the head from the body. It is very important to make sure that all of the tick, including the mouth parts buried in your skin, is removed. Once the tick has been removed, clean the area with soap and water. You may also put a small amount of antibiotic ointment on the area.

A proposal for a new tri-plex on Alder Street brought a handful of concerned neighbours to council chambers Tuesday evening for a public hearing. David Welyechko, the owner of 741 Alder Street near the corner of Alder and 7th Avenue, is planning to build three 1,300 square foot, threebedroom units. Jared Welyechko, who
would be ideal for a retired couple or a small family looking for entry level housing.” But several of the homeowners who live in the vicinity of the property are encouraging council to turn down the Welyechko’s application to re-zone the property from Residential-One to Residential-Three (to allow multi-unit housing) and presented council with a 15-signature petition opposing the three-storey development. Rob Archer, who has lived in his home on Thulin Street just behind the proposed develop-
spoke to council Tuesday about the project, said the proposal fits with the area. “The neighbourhood already includes many multiplex unit properties, with a duplex only two lots over from this one,” Welyechko said. “The construction and development of a threeplex on this property would create new, reasonably priced housing within walking distance of a revitalized downtown core. The units
ment for 26 years, is concerned about privacy. “Few people would care to enjoy a site located directly under the gaze of such a high-density development,” Archer told council. “According to the plans, the views are all focused directly at us. Apart from loss of privacy, we can foresee very busy noise patterns. Imagine one or two diesel trucks warming up each morning with the sound reflecting off the three-storey house very near to our bedroom.” Tyson Mielke who lives next door to the subject property, said that a triplex does not fit in with
the area which is mostly single family homes. “When you purchase a home we feel that there’s a reasonable expectation that the neighbourhood will not change too dramatically and we feel that this tri-plex is quite a dramatic change,” said Mielke who outlined a number of concerns. “Number one is privacy, the height of the structure will allow tenants to peer unimpeded into our backyard and deck. Even with fences and trees this will not prevent us from becoming unwilling participants in a bit of a voyeuristic nightmare.” Mielke was also con-

have to spend the rest of her life living in a fish bowl.” Howard Milner, who lives on 7th Avenue, said if the proposal is granted his view will be obstructed. He is also concerned that the tri-plexes will become rental properties and not add the desired ambience for the main entry into downtown. Jared Welyechko said views should be a nonissue becomes homes across from the proposed property are on zonings that allow homes to be more than 12 metres higher than the proposed tri-plex will be. As for renters, he said the homes are designed to be strata-titled and each would be individually owned and not suited to owners renting them out. Welyechko said traffic concerns should also be alleviated with the new left-hand turning lane the system has installed along Alder in front of the property. After hearing both sides, council will have the final say on the development, likely at the next council meeting on July 23.

cerned that the driveway for the tri-plex is proposed to run along the side of his property and consequently lower the property value of his home. “We’re not against change and nothing personal against the developers,” Mielke said. “We just feel it might not be the best idea for our area.” Lorne Harron, who spoke on behalf of Gladys Derraugh who has owned her home on Alder for more than 30 years, said Derraugh’s property, which she has spent all her savings and time trying to fancy up, will be de-valued if the tri-plex goes ahead. Harron also noted that the development will add to the already high volume of traffic on Alder Street. “Alder Street has become a traffic nightmare,” Harron said. “To get in and out of all these properties is a nightmare and there is no on-street parking in that whole block. If the property re-zoning passes, Gladys will have to look at a 35-foot high wall by approximately 40 feet if it’s solid. If it has windows, then Gladys will

Art gallery offers bursaries for class participants
Gerry Barnum Blues Band will take to the Spirit Square stage Thursday as part of the Uniglobe Charity Jazz and Blues Weekend.
Did you know that the Campbell River Art Gallery has a bursary program for people who want to learn more about art and could use some assistance with costs? The bursaries, offered thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Friends of the Campbell River Art Gallery, cover 50 per cent of the cost of a class. Only one bursary can be received per family per year and bursaries are available on a first come, first served basis. Interested students, or their parents, need only complete a registration form, available at the art gallery office. The gallery offers a wealth of programming for people of all ages, including two summer camps this year for kids aged 7 to 12 - one in July and one in August. The first camp, called ‘Fabulous Art,’ runs from Monday, July 15 to Friday, July 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Young artists will have an opportunity to work with artists Mary Deveau and Shannon McKirgan to investigate a variety
of materials, including paint, collage materials, clay, pencil and much more. Kids should be prepared to make a mess as they become immersed in creating. All supplies are included. From Monday, Aug. 12 to Friday, Aug. 16, kids can take part in the ‘Art Extravaganza’ summer camp with artists Keely Chadwick and Jessica Blue. Students will work with a variety of tools and techniques and will also have a chance to work outside, so they’re inspired by Campbell River’s natural beauty. Students are asked to bring an article of white or light-coloured clothing, like a shirt or socks, for a tie dye activity. All other materials are provided. This camp also runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost for each camp is $175 for art gallery members and $185 for non-members. Drop by the Gallery or call 250-287-2261 for registration information.

Couple finds berry nice way to make a living Morgan ostler Special to the Mirror
aking the transition from dairy farmer to berry farmer seems a natural progression for Ron Shann, a retired UBC Farm manager. It was a transition paved with long months of back breaking, hard
work for Ron and his wife Leslie. This month marks a very successful opening of Campbell River’s first berry farm. The u-pick operation is attracting a constant flow of customers. It is an astonishing sight to follow the pathway beside the Island Highway. to the rear of the Shanns’ attractive home and to

Drive Smart BC Caution: Mower Ahead!
I like to talk about road safety with people I meet because it often ends up producing a good topic for these articles. Yesterday I stopped to speak with the road maintenance contractor operating the mower clearing the shoulder of the roads in my neighbourhood. He was quick to offer three observations, heed the signs, keep your distance and wait behind when there is oncoming traffic.

PUBLIC NOTICE 5x7.5
RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT
This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013.
Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising. Registration applications are available from Elections BC.
The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act.
Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, September 9, 2013 may sign the initiative petition. Individuals may only sign the petition once, and must sign the petition sheet for the electoral district in which they are registered at the time of signing. Signed petitions are available for public inspection.
Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

You were a constable he said, you know exactly what I mean about signs. I’ve had drivers stop to scream at me and give me the finger because there was no warning of the mower. I’d love to tell them to go back and have another look because the signs are there. If you see one, be careful because I often cannot put them as close to the mower as I would like to. Cyclists are a bigger headache than most traffic. They pass by the mower with what seems only inches to spare. If I have to move left to avoid a sign or obstacle they would be under the wheels in an instant he said. There was one once that I don’t know how I avoided squashing I had to move and he was right beside me! I don’t know what many drivers are thinking. They come up behind me and swing out to the left to go by with oncoming traffic in the lane they are moving into! There’s even a sign to remind them to yield to oncoming traffic on the back of the mower. Everyone is in a hurry and they won’t even wait a few seconds for safety’s sake. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www.drivesmartbc.ca Cst. Tim Schewe (Rtd.), DriveSmartBC

Beach shaping helps mitigate storm damage
Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR
No, the city isn’t building another boat ramp near the 50th Parallel sign. Rather, the 100-metre strip is being reshaped to return the beach to a more natural slope that helps protect the Seawalk and underground services from storm damage, and provides better public access to the beach. “Preserving these areas are critical,” says Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. “We know we’re going to see more storms and more severe storms.” The stretch of beach, along the Island Highway just north of the parallel marker, is the just the latest to receive a natural makeover. Beach sloping projects have already taken place near Rockland Road and the Island Highway, and at Rotary, Dick Murphy and Ellis parks. “The areas we’ve done have been very successful,” says Milnthorp. The city has a priority list of beaches to be reshaped and is currently doing about one a year. The list is updated regularly and priority areas may shift depending on storm damages. Money for the projects doesn’t come from the municipal tax coffer, but from the Community Works Fund (funded through the federal gas tax). The latest project is costing $45,000-$50,000 and is expected to be finished today. The timing was also good because work had just been completed in the same area to install new underground services. Milnthorp says the Seawalk section will be repaved by the end of the July and the riparian zone replanted this fall. The difficulty with this section of beach is there isn’t a lot of room to work with between the high water mark and the Seawalk. As a result, it won’t be as gentle a slope as some of the other beaches, but it’s expected to help minimize storm damage as well as providing the public with easier access to the beach. The work involved burying 240 cubic yards of riprap to provide a stable base and then covering it in 720 cubic metres of beach gravel reclaimed from the Ken Forde boat ramp. The driftwood was also saved to be scattered back on the beach.
Paul Rudan/The MiRRoR
The 720 cubic metres of gravel and sand being used to reshape the beach comes from all the natural beach gravel deposited at Ken Ford boat ramp during winter storms.

An operator deposits sand and gravel onto the beach by the Island Highway. The material is then contoured to return the beach to a more natural slope which helps prevent erosion and damage to the adjacent Seawalk, particularly during violent winter storms.

His father Ernest Johnston (Mary) of Fernley, Nevada. His many friends in Campbell River who supported him through his illness. Family service at a later date.

Swim lessons on tap at the outdoor pool Summer is here, and it’s time for swim lessons again at the Centennial outdoor pool. The Centennial pool offers a full range of swim lessons from Sea Turtle to Swim Kids 10. The Sea Turtle, Sea Otter and Salamander lessons are taught in the wading pool – affectionately known as the Marvin. Temperature in the wading pool is 84 – 86 F (29 – 30 C) degrees and with a maximum class size of four, children will experience comfortable and personal swim instruction.
All other swim levels are offered in the main pool, where the temperature is maintained between 78 and 80 F (25 – 26C) degrees. In addition to the Red Cross swim lessons, there is a Bronze Cross course (July 15 to 18 from 8:30 a.m. to noon). This is a great way to wrap up a lifesaving certification in one week and still have all afternoon to play. Younger, aspiring lifeguards, (8 to 13 years old) can register for the Junior Lifeguard camp August 12 to 16. Participants learn basic lifesaving skills and develop confidence and teamwork in an aquatic environment.

3 Options for your glass containers
The glass collection bins will be removed from the recycling depots July 15, 2013.
The depots are for the collection of products that can be recycled. For glass to be recycled, it must be sorted and shipped to out-of-province factories to be made into new glass, as there is no longer a glass recycling facility in BC. The glass collected at the recycling depots is of a poor quality in that it is often contaminated with other material, meaning that, in many instances, the product cannot be recycled anywhere.
Residents are encouraged to reuse their non-refundable glass containers as many times as possible. Many glass containers (such as pop, juice, wine, beer and liquor bottles) require a deposit to be paid when the product is purchased, so residents should take those containers back to the point of purchase or to the Return-It bottle depots.
Residents can drop off their non-refundable glass containers in the bins that have been moved to secured and safe locations at the Campbell River and Comox Valley waste management centres. The glass accepted at these locations will be repurposed as aggregate for roads or ground cover in the landfill. Unlike food waste, glass is an inert material that does not decompose in the landfill to produce leachate or emit harmful greenhouse gases.
Residents can choose to place their non-refundable glass containers in their household garbage for pick up.
*NOTE: It is important to remember that glass containers are not accepted in the blue box municipal curbside recycling programs. For more information visit

Answer: Dentists have extensive knowledge of the
head and neck anatomy, as it is the area they work on daily. Dentists are skilled at injections as they routinely give injections in sensitive areas. Botox has therapeutic uses and is not just for cosmetics. If you clench or grind excessively, Botox can reduce these habits, saving your teeth and relaxing Dr. Jana Lamb DMD your tense facial muscles. People who suffer from headaches are getting relief with Botox. Also, people who suffer from excessive sweating can use Botox to inhibit the sweat glands. In 1992 it was two Canadian ophthalmologists who first used Botox to treat wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. This treatment has been approved by the FDA and it is reported to last up 4-6 months. Botox treatment offers advantages for men and women. Botox is a purified protein which is safely metabolized by the body. The appointments are short and you are able to carry on with your day as it allows for natural movement of the face. Results last up to 6 months or even longer with repeated use. The CDSBC has approved the use of Botox in dental offices. For more information or to find out if Botox will work for you please contact Dr. Jana Lamb for a Complimentary Cosmetic Consult at 250-287-7343.

Positive Aquaculture Awareness hosted its 17th Annual BC Aquaculture Slow-Pitch Tournament at Willow Point Park last weekend. Six teams from Campbell River and four teams from Port Hardy competed – all teams in the tournament have ties to the aquaculture industry. The Division A trophy, after spending last year in Tofino, has returned to Campbell River to spend a year with the Mainstream Canada team sponsored team, the Maniacs. The team was awarded the trophy after a very competitive final game with the Port Hardy Marine Harvest Canada sponsored team, the Stray Katz. The B division trophy is leaving Campbell River and travelling to Port Hardy to spend the year with the Marine Harvest Canada sponsored team, Something Fishy. The Something Fishy team played off the Mainstream Canada sponsored team, Slammin. A great final game was played with the two teams tied throughout the game until the final inning when Something Fishy took the lead. Delicious BBQ farmed salmon, donated by Mainstream Canada was served on Saturday with proceeds going to Campbell River’s Northwest Shito-Kai Competitive Team. Campbell River Search and Rescue volunteers ran the Tournament Beer Gardens with proceeds going to their organization.
