Beecher Bay residents face eviction 30-day notice is not long enough for residents Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

The Cheanuh First Nation (Beecher Bay First Nations, also referred to as Scia’new), located on East Sooke Road, has voted to modify their Beecher Bay Land Code Amendment to allow for development. As a result of this vote, the residents occupying the 125 campsites have been given a 30-day Notice to Vacate. “The Band held a membership-wide vote on July 10 to consider changes to its Land Code that would prepare its lands for future development,” reads the Cheanuh’s press release. “Our membership is in need of better jobs and housing,” Chief Russell Chips said in the press release. “We are committed to creating a sustainable development plan that the Cheanuh people will be proud of.” The first step in moving towards this future development is to close the campground effective August 11, 2013. The campground has 125 lots on it, and houses many permanent residents. Some, like Rene Patenaude, have lived there for decades and have come to call it home. Chipps acknowledges that this decision will sever relationships with some of the campers. When asked if they had

Right, Chief Russell Chipps. indication that they would be evicted, two of the “campers,” Gail and Rene Patenaude (aged 69 and 74 respectively), said otherwise. “None whatsoever,” said Gail. They did acknowledge that they knew about the upcoming vote, “But we still didn’t think that it would happen,” said Gail. Her husband, Rene, has been a full-time resident of the park for three decades. His skill as a carpenter has resulted in the ultimate construction of a lovely, wellcared for “home” that is about 1,500 square feet in size. It began with a trailer 30 years ago. The notion of dismantling

205-6591 Lincroft Road

their “home” and relocating within 30 days, has the couple a bit overwhelmed. One could say they are in shock. On July 12, the day after they had received the Notice to Vacate, the full extent of the impact had not quite yet registered. “It’s sickening,” says Gail, speaking to her feelings of the situation, “There’s no sleep. We’re not eating.” Rene sat quietly beside Gail, his eyes brimming with unspilled tears. Edward Ezako is another “member of this community,” having lived at the campground for 10 years. He is in a state of shock about how things are unfolding.

“People have lived here for 40 years, for heaven’s sake... My neighbour across the street has a house, he’s lived here for 40 years. There are people who have lived here for 67 years. And, like, we’re all blown away by the chief’s proposal to have us get out of here in 30 days. We’re like in shock.” Bill Mundie, a terminally ill 71-year-old man with cancer is also impacted. Half of the remaining days before eviction will be spent receiving chemotherapy, making the planning of a move nigh impossible. Regarding Mundie’s situation and condition, Chief Chipps said, “We are not animals here, and -- you saw my sister

here earlier? She’s (Sharon Cooper) been over there talking to him, and trying to see what he needs to, to um, be in or out. We understand that, what’s going on there and we’ll figure that out, with him, himself, not over in the middle of the campground. But she just came from there. He has a cancer issue. We know that. We’ll take care of him.” Sharon Cooper is sister to the chief, and a key spokesperson. Frustration from the campers also comes from the conflicting message that the Beecher Bay First Nations has allowed residents to build more permanent structures. Chief Chipps said that

in his time as chief, he has only approved the building of one structure. “I’ve approved one addition in my lifetime as chief and that was for one camper who was donating a boat... he said that he just loves it out here, and he knows that because Beecher Bay’s been involved in economic development since I became chief, and he always knew that I would be doing something sooner or later, that we would even have it taken down. And he actually asked me how much notification would I give him to tear it down and I said ‘Well I’d only give you one day.’ It’s kind of a sarcastic joke between the two of us.” According to Chipps, the camper was “fine with that.” It might be the case that the chief has only approved one addition in his eight years. According to Edward Ezako, the approval process has always been through the chief’s cousin. “We have always been told that we had to go to ... to his cousin Mike. We have always had to go to him to get approval for everything that we have done. And he has approved everything that we have done.” When asked if there was anything in writing to solidify his claim, Ezako responds, “There’s never ever been anything in writing, it’s a very... you approach him gingerly and you plead your case... Some people are allowed to build and some people aren’t. It’s that simple.”

Sooke Fine Arts Show ready to go - almost www.sookenewsmirror.com

11-day show, a summer highlight in Sooke Pirjo Raits

Sooke News Mirror

One of the most eye-catching pieces being shown at the 2013 Sooke Fine Arts Show may well be a 500 pound gorilla made from recycled car bumpers, so said show coordinator Catherine Keogan. “There’s some very exciting stuff coming through with definite stand-out pieces on the floor,” said Keogan. The submissions edged out last year’s record with an influx new artists entering their works. The gruelling task of choosing the works was a fourday process. This year the jurors selected works through an image process. “We asked the jurors to look at the piece not the presentation, most of them have done online adjudications. It was interesting to see where they agreed and where their points of view varied,” said Keogan. “It was huge job for the jurors and the online aspect allows them to spend more time with each piece.” With the selections done and the work ready to be displayed, artists who were not accepted for the 2013 show are encouraged to resubmit for 2014 as the jurors are different each year. “There’s some incredible artists in the Sooke area, I would love to see Vancouver Island recognized as Canada’s artistic hub,” said Keogan. “People are drawn here and there’s so

It takes months of preparation and hundreds of hours of volunteer time to pull it off. SEAPARC Leisure Complex is transformed into a gallery and one would never know that below is an ice surface with bleachers on the sides. It is one very large feat accomplished by 300 dedicated volunteers. Some begin setting up committees and organizing as early as December/January. “It’s extraordinary,” said Keogan. “We couldn’t do it with them. What we do is of the highest calibre, all of our volunteers wear many hats… it’s an incredible community that way, they are building many of the important parts of this community.” The show includes many of the same

events and features as in years past, beginning with the Purchasers’ Preview Night on July 25. The show opens on Friday to the public with the Artist Celebration taking place on Saturday. There are live artists’ demonstrations and talks as well as music every day. There are events for kids and seniors, a Taste of Sooke and youth art in the lobby. The Sooke Rotary provided a grant for the

youth art to be framed, giving it a more professional look. Art lovers can purchase a show pass and come as often as they wish or come for one day only. Admission tickets are available at the door. Kids under 12 get in free. There are two ticketed events, the Purchaser’s Preview ($25) and the Taste of Sooke ($12) evenings. The Purchasers Preview Night is an opportunity for art lovers to preview and purchase

artwork prior to the Sooke Fine Art Show’s public opening. Be the first to stroll the gallery and find the perfect addition for your art collection. The Taste of Sooke on August 1 is the chance to sample savoury selections of appetizers and refreshments prepared by Sooke’s outstanding culinary community. Music by the Cloverpoint Drifters will add to the ambiance. The public has the

opportunity to select their favourite works of art, and show organizers are trying to make it as interactive as possible. “Part of our mandate is to get people engaged with art and have it play a role in their lives,” said Keogan. Keogan and her partner Britton Jacob-Schram, who is the administrative coordinator, have taken on the task of the show for the past two years. They are now Sooke residents who never want to leave. “The community doesn’t show all of its secrets right away,” said Keogan. The coordinators and the volunteers are the faces of the show, but much of the support comes from the Sooke and area business community. “We get a huge amount of support from the business community,” she said, “especially in tough times it’s wonderful to know you have the support when it’s not so easy to give.” For more information on the 2013 Sooke Fine Arts show go to: www. sookefinearts.com or call 250-642-7256.

EXERCISE

Ron Kumar

Pharmacist/Owner

There are 1,440 minutes in every day. Schedule 30 of them for physical activity! Regular exercise is a critical part of staying healthy. People who are active live longer and feel better. Exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight. It can delay or prevent diabetes, some cancers, and heart problems. Most adults need atleast 30 minutes of moderate physical activity atleast five days per week. Examples include walking briskly, mowing the lawn, dancing, swimming for recreation or bicycling. Stretching and weight training can also strengthen your body and improve your fitness level. The key is to find the right exercise for you. If it is fun, you are more likely to stay motivated. You may want to walk with a friend, join our walking group or plan a group bike ride. If you’ve been inactive for awhile, use a sensible approach and start out slowly.

Eviction notices served to residents Cont’d from page 1

Sharon Cooper maintains that in spite of its years in existence, the campground was never intended to be a permanent residence. “This Cheanuh Marina has always been a campsite, and has never been a place where anyone is supposed to live. And at this time, there are people that actually do, we are aware of people that do live here. So we will be looking to clean up ‘stuff’ that people will probably be leaving behind.” This includes buildings that range from sundecks and small shacks to “quite large buildings,” acknowledged Cooper. These buildings, she said, have never been approved and they need to be removed. “The extensive developments have never been approved and people have always known that they are staying in a campsite. And anyone who goes to a campsite brings in a trailer, and can hook up their trailer and leave within a day.” Residents offer a different view, saying that the more “permanent” structures on the campground had been bought and sold, with both the band’s knowledge and consent. After a tour of their house, Rene offered to show a house that had been sold “about a month ago,” according to Gail. An expired ad on Used Victoria, posted on April 28, 2013, shows a “Cute rancher” at 914-4901 East Sooke Road for sale, for $89,900, complete with an oil-fired

water heater, forced air furnace, a back up generator, and fully serviced hydro with metre. “I’ll show you where that lady bought this house for $80,000,” offered Rene, driving to lot 914. To which Gail adds, “And they (the band) let her (Angela Whylie) buy it!” When asked about a recent sale of a structure on the campground, Chief Chipps and his sister Sharon Cooper both responded with shock and amazement. “Wow ... that’s awesome, can you find out who it was so we can get some of that?” said Cooper. “We’ve never negotiated it ourselves, per say,” Chief Chipps confirmed. “We’d really like to get some of that share, if that’s actually what supposed to come to us. I’d appreciate that, we need it, for our people,” continued Cooper. The Sooke News Mirror did receive documentation of a sale in 2010 of unit 4-14 for $25,000, for all “as-is” structures and appliances. The vote for the Beecher Bay Land Code Amendment took place on July 10. Of 179 eligible names, 90 band members turned out to vote. Seventy voted in favour of amending the Land Code, and 25 — including former Chief Burt Charles — voted against it. The amendment passed. On July 11 the notices went out. Residents of the campground have 30 days to vacate. “As of August 12th, 2013,” reads the Notice

In order to meet the targets that we’re shooting for, we have to put out our eviction notices, yesterday.” TSD is a “trust for sustainable land development” as per their website, tsd.ca. It is headed up by David Butterfield, who has also been involved in other local projects like the re-development of Shoal Point in Victoria. “As soon as the deadline comes, we’re going to start preparing the land for our future developments, our potential future developments that are happening,” said Sharon Cooper. “So once the deadline comes, we’re going to have to do a bit of clean up that’s going on, and that’s going to take some time.” The notice also indicates that a relocation coordinator is available, as is a storage location for items that cannot be moved within the allowable time. When asked about what they hoped to accomplish with a new development, Chief Chipps emphasized the need for future development that will, in the long term, benefit the band. “We want to grow. And the campsite we have right now, the way

it exists, is not going to allow us to grow. It’s not going to give us a sustainable future for our children. We need to make sure that they’re covered.” Chipps Two band members supporting the development, Junior Chipps and Louise Charles, reinforced the chief’s perspective. “It’s not like it’s a surprise,” said Junior, “everybody knew about it.” Junior reiterated the temporary nature of the campsite and that it was never meant for permanent residence. “There’s no sewage, just a silly little hose running around for water for everybody.” Over and over again, the residents stated that the problem isn’t so much that they are being asked to leave; it’s about the 30-day timeline. The senior couple, Rene and Gail Patenaude, said as much. Ideally, said Gail, they would like to get the timeline extended. “We know we have to go,” Gail said, “but we can’t find a place in 30 days” They can’t sell the house to the reserve. “They said, they’re just going to take it over,” said Gail. At the press conference on July 12, a CFAX reporter said to the Chief that the campers were asking for more time. Chipps responded, “I don’t know if you understand how hard this is to do to people I consider friends, and do I want to do it over and over again? No. No, I feel the pain for doing it right now is too much.”

The reporter then rephrased the question, stating that a one-time notice giving the campers, say, three months, Chipps responded, “I wish it was my choice, but if you turn around and look on the wall there, there is a vote and the choice has been taken from me. We’ve been mandated to carry on with our development.” When pressed that the vote did not reflect the amount of time given, Chipps responded, “We have targets.” When asked if a contract had been signed with the developer, Chief Chipps admitted, “No, we don’t have a definitive agreement.” “Our long-term vision it to get sustainable development in order for our children to live and grow, when Treaty comes around, if we do and when we do sign the treaty, that we’re prepared. We notice that a lot of treaties seem to be more valued if there is economic development on the community,” said Chipps. The intention is to enter into a partnership with the developer (TSD, with David Butterfield) that is owned 51 per cent by Beecher Bay. The duration of the contract, and the number of proposed units have not yet been definitively determined yet. A separate vote will take place on the actual development plan, which has yet to be drafted.

Lucky 13: Explore the Sooke area Pirjo Raits

Sooke News Mirror

Summer is here and it’s time to discover what is on our doorstep and what you can do to get out into the woods, beaches and trails. Can’t think of anything to do? Try some of these activities. If you are sticking close to home you can: 1. Go play a round at Sooke’s par three golf course - Demamiel Creek on Throup Road in Sooke. It costs $16 for nine holes and on Mondays and Wednesday seniors can play 18 for the price of nine up to 3 p.m. 2. Go camping. Take the kids and head for the French Beach or Juan de Fuca campsites. A party can camp for between $10-$30/ night. Many beaches offer just tenting sites for those who choose to walk in. Check with BC Parks for full details or www.hellobc.com. 3. Explore Port Renfrew. In Port Renfrew there are a number of recreation sites including Fairy Lake, Lizard Lake and the San Juan River. Each of these spots offer camping, hiking and water-related activities. No motor boats are allowed on Fairy and Lizard Lakes. Check out Avatar Grove for the gnarliest trees around and view the Harris Creek spruce. It’s a short hike to the giant Sitka spruce which is 13 feet in diameter. Driving Directions: From Lake Cowichan head west on S. Shore Road. Turn left onto Pacific Marine Road (signs for Port Renfrew). Drive 28.6km and the site will be on the left with a small sign and parking area. 4. Take the Pacific Marine Circle Route. Take a day or three and explore the area from Victoria to Duncan to Sooke to Port Ren-

frew. It’s a 255 kilometre trip. This coast to coast journey on Vancouver Island offers panoramic views of the Juan de Fuca, Haro and Georgia straits as well as the Saanich Peninsula. Enjoy a quieter way of life while visiting spectacular provincial parks, pastoral landscapes and wineries. Please note: This is a remote route with limited services. Some sections may be narrow and sharp, and driving times may vary depending on type of vehicle. Please exercise caution when driving. For information on current road conditions, please visit www.drivebc.ca. 5. Hike some of the best trails on the West Coast. Test your mettle on the West Coast Trail. One of the world’s top wilderness hikes, this week-long, 75-km trek takes you through lush rainforest and along driftwood-strewn beaches on Vancouver Island’s west coast. A challenging trip, the trail rewards with remote beaches, rugged coastal scenery and glimpses of seals, sea lions, eagles and whales. Numbers are limited on the trail and reservations are recommended. If you’re travelling independently, the West Coast Trail Express Bus can shuttle you to and from the trailheads from Victoria or Nanaimo. Several companies, including Sea to Sky Expeditions and Ecosummer Expeditions offer guided trips.   Prefer a shorter hike? The Juan de Fuca Trail, along Vancouver Island’s southwest coast, has several access points so you can enjoy rugged coastal scenery on a day trip or a multi-day trek. 6. SEAPARC Leisure Centre in Sooke has swimming and fitness programs for all ages. You can swim a lap or two for just $5.75, kids

Depending on the day it will cost you either nothing or $1 to $1.25 to chalk up your cue. There are also pool leagues in Sooke where you can compete with local pool sharks. 8. Check out the Sooke Region Museum and learn about the fascinating history of the Sooke Region. Friendly staff will point out interesting exhibits. There is usually an art exhibit in the upper gallery. 9. Stinking Fish Studio Tour. Artists in East Sooke and Metchosin

open their studio doors to art lovers on a selfguided tour. For a list of studios and participating artists go to: www. stinkingfishstudiotour. com. 10. Hire a fishing guide and go out and catch that salmon or halibut. Rent a kayak or canoe or go kite surfing or even paddle boarding. 11. Hang ten! Get your surfboard and head out to Jordan River, Sombrio or China Beach and get your groove on. 12. Walk, bike or ride your horse along the Galloping Goose trail, which extends from Victoria to Sooke. It’s a 55 kilometre multi-use trail on a former railway line. 13. The Sooke Potholes is a favourite for South Islanders and offers a variety of swimming opportunities. For dunking to floating, it’s popular place to spend a day in the heat of the summer.

EDITORIAL CARTOON

Dubious eggs or real possibilities? “The world is full of hopeful analogies and handsome dubious eggs called possibilities.” George Eliot Progress and development often go hand in hand and there are always those who decry both. But, in these days of profit and loss margins and shareholder accountability, it seems many are trying to squeeze as much out of those paying as they can while they can. You see it all over and it’s a dubious egg. Take the case of people being asked to move from the Beecher Bay Marina and campground site, so development can happen. This is not the first time that eviction notices were imminent. When another developer was interested in the site a few years ago, the residents were put on notice. Most didn’t move and they must have known at that point that development was going to happen sooner rather than later. The problem with the whole situation is poverty. Poverty for the Scia’new and poverty for many of the residents of the campground. The band wants to ensure a better future and the residents want to remain where they are because their mobile homes, in many cases, are unmoveable. But, the band should have, over the years, not allowed outbuildings, decks and patios to be built. It was supposed to be a campground. So the fault lies with all. It is a sad situation definitely but when you are renting a pad, you are not a permanent resident. When you are the “landlord” you have the right to develop your land. Let’s hope there can be a clear resolution to this sad story and the band finds the compassion to extend the notice. After all, they still have a lot to go through, including due diligence, before the bulldozer transforms the campground to a condo development.

ANOTHER VIEW

Cabinet minister responds to Horgan I am responding to the July 10, 2013, op-ed ‘Hydro rate hikes, tip of the iceberg’ by John Horgan. Stable and secure power is fundamental to growing a strong economy which is why we are investing in new and existing hydro infrastructure. While Mr. Horgan asserts there is no business case for a nation building project like the Northwest Transmission Line, a line that will bring power to a huge part of the province currently running off diesel generators, our government believes investments such as this are exactly what BC Hydro should be doing. This project will open up world class mineral deposits and support new mines, like Red Chris, one of the top 10 copper gold deposits in the world. In fact, the Mining Association of BC estimates the line could attract more than $15 billion in mining investment, creating up to 10,000 jobs and generating $300 million in annual tax revenues. None of this happens unless we build the line to provide the power these

mines need. We need to ensure we have a diverse grid that can provide reliable power today, and into the future. That’s why we continue to support new, cleaner sources of power such as wind and run of river. Do these sources produce power at a higher cost than what our heritage assets do? Of course they do. Like most other things, it costs more today to produce power than it did decades ago. But these sources are cleaner than alternatives such as coal or gas and less expensive than building brand new hydroelectric dams. In the nineties the NDP government made virtually no investments in Hydro infrastructure and did little to maintain BC Hydro’s assets. Their idea of a sound investment was a power plant in Pakistan. We have taken a different approach. We are investing in projects that are powering our needs today and ensuring we will have the power we need for our future. The unprecedented opportunity in Liquefied Natural

Gas and other growing sectors such as mining must be supported with stable, secure power. This is what we are building. You can’t make these kinds of legacy investments that will benefit all British Colombians without putting pressure on rates. Contrary to some reports, BC Hydro is managing their capital projects within their planned budget. There are a couple of projects over budget but most are under budget. I have been very clear that my mandate, as given to me by the Premier, is to minimize rate increases while continuing to make historic investments in Hydro’s infrastructure to grow our economy. I am committed to accomplishing this goal.   Honourable Bill Bennett Minister of Energy and Mines, Responsible for Core Review

letters

Bike skills are about education One letter writer last week did not like the idea of school principals supporting the proposed T’Souke Community Bike Park. This playground is directly in the interests of school students and it is entirely within administrators’ rights to advocate on issues affecting their students. Schools and recreation programs will have full free use of the bike playground for programs. Having this bike park in Sooke has a direct effect on schools’ ability to provide quality recreational programming to their student body. Currently school tax dollars are spent busing kids to recreational facilities in Victoria and beyond. Let’s keep the kids learning here in Sooke. Mountain biking is a fast-growing recreational activity that is accessible to a broad range of kids, including those who don’t enjoy or can’t afford organized team sports. Just three brief examples demonstrate this. The head of the bike program at Cedar Secondary said that, in the last few years, six times as many of their students have gotten involved in their mountain biking club.” The after-school bike program at Margaret Jenkins Elementary went from 50 to 100 kids last year. In Boothroyd, the Aboriginal Youth Mountain Bike Project

is building a bike park and the youth there are gaining skills in biking, leadership, and volunteerism.  These are just a few examples of youth and family positive initiatives happening in other communities. This is the direction we should be heading. To address another point in last week’s letter: I would trust school principals to know what they understand or not, and what is appropriate for them to say or not.  To say school administrators should not express an opinion on this  -  and that they should not even be invited to is incorrect. Michael Linehan Sooke

Trip down Memory Lane

I am writing to tell you how in 1955 my father, Andy Foley, had many of the “boys” in the grad picture of June 26 on his Sooke football team. Great to remember these players, Norma Essery, Danny Lajeunesse, Dave McClimon and Dennis Hird. Sorry I missed some of you, but you did Sooke proud as you represented Sooke in the B.C. Champions softball that year in Kamloops. Dad and mom are gone but we are still the “Baseball Nine” kids of

theirs, now all living on the Island. Thanks for the memory of 1955, Adele Morley (Foley)

Bike park will be used At the June 26 public open house on the proposed T’Souke Community Bike Park, two designs were presented for a proposed world class park in the NE wedge of John Phillips Memorial Park. Some of the neighbours expressed concerns that the underused park in their back yards would change to something they weren’t comfortable with. Their concerns were heard and noted. None of them was an insurmountable problem and the Sooke Bike Club looks forward to addressing them in subsequent designs for the park. A bike course was included in the original 2006 plan for JPMP, and ever since many dedicated individuals and groups have been trying to make headway on getting it built.  The unveiled plans have been designed to be very neighbor and family friendly. They  consist of  features that can be used by everyone, from tots to teens to more mature riders -- beginner to expert. The park will also have native landscaping, walking paths, picnic

tables and benches for everyone to enjoy. This sliver of the park will be beautiful and it will be used. Kids and families will have a playground in the centre of town, accessible by bike. We want our kids active, visible and safe. The bike park at JPMP will give us a central location, where kids will be seen and parents can join and play with them. It will be a location that will attract visitors to the park. The park will be accessible and free of charge to anyone, including school and recreation groups. JPMP is by far the best location for this community playground. Anyone who goes past John Phillips on any day can see that it is spectacularly  underutilized. Currently, it is not an attractive or natural park. It is a decommissioned golf course, living in limbo. We have the opportunity here to do something that will have a broad appeal and attract families and visitors to Sooke. Let’s stop stalling and start acting on behalf of youth and families in Sooke. Christina Schlattner Sooke

30 days notice is not enough The long time resi-

dents (125) of Cheanuh Marina Campsite have been given 30 days eviction notice on July 11. Some residents have lived here for decades and have been allowed to put major additions on trailers here. Although payment is on a monthly basis, with water supplied, all other amenities are the resident’s responsibility. So, this is not your average campsite. On a recent news interview a band member was quoted as saying ‘... back up your truck, hook up your trailer and that’s what you do.” Given the band permitted major add-ons to these trailers, the dismantling of these additions make it difficult to simply hook up one’s trailer and get out by August 11. Among the the campsites full-time resident population there are seniors, children, those on disability pensions and low income. These people will be especially impacted with the 30-day eviction notice. In the news interview on July 12, the band chief stated that the contract with devel-

Cont’d from page 9 oper David Butterfield was not signed, there was no definitive agreement. Given this information, we as residents are baffled at the necessity to get us out of Cheanuh in 30 days and that whatever we are not able to remove after August 12, becomes the property of the Beecher Bay First Nation Band. Is it unfair to ask for a little compassion? What is the rush? To sum up, we as residents, accept that the band wants to change the use of this property to benefit future generations, however we feel it is unreasonable and cruel to demand eviction in only 30 days. Owen Seeton Resident of Cheanuh Marina Campsite, East Sooke

Dumb intersection With regard to ‘possibly the dumbest intersection in Sooke’, as noted by Councillor Pearson, the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce had also sent a letter to the District of Sooke encour-

Q

letters aging them to remove the barrier and turning restrictions at the intersection of Townsend and Sooke Roads. The negative impact on the businesses accessed from Townsend Road is very significant and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. The other intersection we encouraged the district to change is at Church and Sooke Roads, the entrance/ exit to Mariner’s Village. Having turning restrictions for exiting Mariner’s Village again places definite negatives in marketing and selling Mariner’s Village to people that are interested in investing in Sooke. We, as a community, need to help our local businesses to succeed and prosper and remove unreasonable barriers to their success. Randy Welters President Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce

Cheanuh

evictions are not respectful The eviction of the ‘campers’ at Cheanuh campsite is an emotionally charged one. Long term residents of the site, some for decades, worked and lived side-by-side with Scai’new band members, forming relationships that bonded them through times of celebrations, and times of hardships. An abrupt 30-day eviction (and confiscation) notice and a “Back it up and hitch it up” attitude is how band leadership chose to end those relationships. The transition from Cheanuh for those who made it their primary home could have been so much more respectful. Why didn’t the band have the members of the camp ground community meet with them to tell them plans to develop were in the

works? Give the ‘campers’ a year to make the transition, dismantle and salvage some of their investment, and let the band say good bye to those who had deep friendships so that they could treasure their last summer at Cheanuh? Nothing will completely reverse the disrespect for those who have been treated so unfairly. But extending the eviction time frame would be a place to start. Janice St. John East Sooke

PROFESSIONALS Rebecca Armitage

Mortgages

Q: Why get a Mortgage Pre-approval? A: With a mortgage pre-approval, a licensed mortgage professional can do a complete verification prior to sending you shopping for your home, and with that done, the mortgage amount you are going shopping with is actually what you can spend. We can lock-in an interest rate for you anywhere from 60 – 120 days. You are guaranteed to get that mortgage rate or better. If interest rates drop, your rate will drop as well. However, if the interest rates go up, your rate will not, ensuring you get the best rate throughout the mortgage pre-approval process. In order to get pre-approved for a mortgage, we require a short list of information. We will explain to you the benefits of mortgage terms, the latest programs available, which mortgage products we believe will meet your needs the best, plus we will review all of the other costs involved with purchasing a home. A pre-approval is something every potential home buyer should do and only takes a few minutes of your time.

CAR CARE “MUSTS” YOU DON’T WANT TO SKIP DRIVE BELT TENSIONER

WHY: One or more rubber drive belts transfer the rotation of the engine’s crankshaft to various accessories that help your vehicle function properly. Belts that are too loose will allow slippage and reduce efficiency. Belts that are too tight can damage bearings and cause premature component failure. WHEN: Drive belt condition and tension should be checked at every oil change. Many cars today have automatic belt tensioners that require no maintenance, On others, technicians must use a belt tension guage to check and adjust the tension manually. to prevent being stranded by a broken accessory drive belt, have your car’s belts replaced every four years or 60,000 miles BOTTOM LINE: If a belt comes loose or breaks, it can cause major damage to your engine.

Sooke News Mirror

Violist Jordan Vermes is a Sooke resident who is headed to a national competition in Kitchener/Waterloo. His Collegium Quartet placed first in the B.C. Provincials in Chilliwack after only seven months as a group and also placed first on the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival. The members met while studying at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, in the Collegium Program. Vermes, 20, lives in Sooke and was home-schooled. Jordan Vermes plays viola, Blythe Allers on violin, Ethan Allers on cello and Ceilidh Briscoe plays violin. To raise money for their trip to Ontario, the quartet is performing at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Friday, July 19 at 7:30 p.m. Violinist Blythe Allers will be going to the Nationals as a soloist as well. He will perform a Beethoven Sonata and Conus Violin Concerto at the Friday concert. “We are playing the Ravel String Quartet,”

Collegium is, left to right, Jordan Vermes, Ethan Allers, Ceilidh Briscoe and Blythe Allers. said Vermes. “It’s basically the four movements.” The Quartet in F and Reval were at first rejected when submitted to the Prix de Rome and the Conservatoire de Paris in 1904, but the loss catapulted his career by a sympathetic public who rallied behind his compositions and musical style. Joseph-Maurice Ravel was a French composer known espe-

cially for his melodies, orchestral and instrumental textures and effects. Along with Claude Debussy, he was one of the most prominent figures associated with Impressionist music. In 1905, Claude Debussy wrote to Ravel: “In the name of the gods of music and in my own, do not touch a single note you have written in your Quartet.” Ravel’s string Quartet in F major

stands as one of the most widely performed chamber music works in the classical repertoire, representing Ravel’s early achievements and rise from obscurity. On CD, it is often coupled with Debussy’s own string quartet. Admission to the performance on Friday, July 19 is by donation. Holy Trinity Church is located at 1962 Murray Road.

Looking Back A look through the Sooke News Mirror archives: July 16, 2008 Silver Spray plans tent houses as part of resort Michael Thornton believes he has brought the best possible players to help develop Silver Spray and any promises made in the past were delivered — to the best of his ability. The 63.8 hectare (158 acre) planned resort and residential development has been sitting in limbo for many years as potential developers looked at the potential of the site and passed on the opportunity. At present there are only a few completed homes on the residential portion. The developers want to build at least 15 tent suites on Iron Mine Hill. These semi permanent houses would cascade down the hillside offering spectacular views of the water and the pounding surf below. The area is zoned for cottages and Thornton says the tent houses are well within the definition of “cottages.” July 16 2003 Sooke likely first in B.C.to charge all riders Even though a userpay bus policy failed in one B.C. school district, the Sooke school district is forging ahead with its plan to charge its students to ride the

bus. During budget meetings this spring, the school district personnel repeatedly said other school districts in B.C. and Albert make students pay to ride the bus. However, the only example Sooke school district board chair and Transportation Review Committee member Denise Riley could cite was the Kelowna school district. When the Sooke News Mirror called to confirm that Kelowna was making students pay to ride, it learned that their short-lived user fee policy was a flop and students are once again getting a free ride. July 15, 1998 Port Renfrew opens new Info Centre July 1 marked the grand opening of Port

Renfrew’s art and information centre. Owners Bruce Cominuik and Eleanor Amon celebrated the birth of Port Renfrew’s first permanent information centre in typical West Coast style with wine, cheese and, of course, Port Renfrew smoked salmon. Open from nine till nine, seven days a week, and nine to seven in the winter months, the centre is already serving approximately 20 people per week and 55-60 on weekends.

July 13, 1988 Sooke’s weather was cooler, wetter in June Due to the westerly winds that have prevailed over the past few weeks, Sooke’s weather during June was slightly cooler and wetter than is usual for this time of year. Records kept at the Coast Guard Radio Station on McMillan Road show that the mean temperature for the month was 12 degrees Celsius, half a degree below the 22-year average mean of 12.5. Looking ahead July is usually Sooke’s driest month with rainfall averaging only 21.6 mm and temperature average of 14 degrees. The hottest July day was July 23, 1974, when the temperature reached 29.4 degrees.

DEATHS Maxine Verna-Lou Marginet, (nee Pritchard) left us suddenly Friday July 12, 2013. Left behind to mourn are husband Ray, daughter Kim, son-in-law Steve, grandchildren Keifer, Alex, Allen, Amanda and Steven, and great grandchildren Keenan and Cash. She has gone on to join family and friends that have made this journey before her and she will now be reunited with her best friend Verna. To her we send these words: We hold back our tears When we speak your name, But the ache in our hearts Remains the same. No one knows the sorrow we’ll share, When the family will meet And you’ll not be there. We’ll laugh, we’ll smile, We’ll play our parts, But behind it all will lie our broken hearts. We’ll hold you close Within our hearts And there you will remain Till one by one we make this journey, And the chain will link again. One of her greatest joys was to be surrounded by family and friends. So please join us for a memorial tea to be held at Sands Funeral Chapel, 317 Goldstream Ave, Colwood BC Saturday July 20, 2013 at 1:00 pm.

Olive Joyce Flowers A.L.C.M. R.M.T.

1924-2013

Joyce Flowers passed away peacefully with family at her side at The Heritage Woods (The Priory) Care Home in Langford, BC on June 26,

2013 at the age of 89. She was pre-deceased by her parents, Olive Smith Fox and John Frederick Fox, and in 2002 by her husband Reg. She leaves behind her son and daughter-in-law, John and Sally Flowers of Cranbrook, BC, her sister Noreen in England, her cousin Bryan (Mandy) and numerous nieces and nephews. Joyce was born in Derby, England and married Reginald William Flowers in 1943. She attended the London Conservatory of Music and obtained her A.L.C.M. in 1945 while employed full time during the war years. Joyce immigrated to Canada in 1946 as a war bride and settled with Reg in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. She immediately commenced her music teaching practice and obtained her Registered Music Teacher (RMT) status. She taught in Moose Jaw for 30 years until 1976 when she and Reg moved to Sooke, BC. She re-established her music practice in Sooke and taught for another 31 years, bringing her total teaching career to a 61 year span. While in Saskatchewan, Joyce and Reg were well known for their garden and orchard produce, winning many local and provincial horticultural awards over the years. They enjoyed the outdoors and were avid travelers. Joyce also enjoyed photography and researching and compiling family history. The family would like to thank all the staff at Heritage Woods in Langford and at Ayre Manor in Sooke for their very excellent support, assistance and kindness during Joyce’s later years. Also a special thank you to the Home Nurses and to Knowing Heart and Allman Home Care Services for their personalized and thoughtful attention to Joyce‘s needs. There will be no funeral by request. A grave-side memorial service will be held at a future date. Condolences to Joyce’s family may be sent to www.carefuneral.com

TAUGHT HOW TO DIE

www.iDreamAuto.com DL# 7557

- BUYING - It was September 11, 2001 and the World Trade - RENTINGCentre - had just collapsed and the Pentagon damaged - SELLINGkilling - thousands of people as I got ready for work that

morning. The article that I had read the night before bcclassified.com

was now burned into my heart. It had happened after WW2 as one young man returned home and was talking to his ninth grade algebra teacher. He commented that she had taught him many things, but she had not taught him how to die–a lesson he had badly needed during the war. That teacher vowed never to let that happen again to any of her students as she boldly explained God’s Good News to her students at the beginning of each year. Imagine that happening in our public school system today. Maybe you don’t want to know, BUT, has anyone taught you how to die?

The Rev. Dwight Greiger

If you explore the words of Jesus Christ you will find that he said that He was the Way, the Truth and the Life and that no one could come to the Father except through him. Jesus came to prepare us to die so that we could really live.

Sooke has always been a sports oriented town SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Recent mention in a Victoria daily of Brian Banner, starting to become known nationally as a fastball catcher, one of a 40-man roster selected for Team Canada, reminds us that since our first Sooke soccer team photo was taken in 1907, Sooke has been outstanding as a sports community. That our many sports fields are maintained by volunteer effort is an example of the dedication of coaches and supporters in encouraging our youth. Another example is the Sooke Community Hall, built in 1937 not only as a structure to accommodate dances and public events, but especially for basketball, with a court that was one of the largest on Vancouver Island in that era. One of the basketball coaches in this 1952 photo is still wellknown in Sooke today, Rod Sullivan, far right, who earned his living as a boomman, but was out fishing when I called his house just now.

at Chemainus. While sports were important for the young boys in the photo, their careers carried them

elsewhere, and we’ve heard the following notes about their working lives. Standing, rear is John Kendrew who

became an educator in northern BC; Tim Goudie who worked as a loader operator in the woods; George

skipper on the Fraser and upcoast; and Everett Sandberg. Seated, Billy Perry, now retired from a career with BC Hydro; Len Morris who became a saw filer (Art Morris Park was named for his dad); Gordie Eve - while he’s now retired in Victoria he was a log scaler who flew his own plane to work. Glenn Bullen, end of the row, spent many years pitching fastball, though he earned his living in management at the local sawmill. Sadly, Tim Goudie, Len Morris and Glenn Bullen have passed on. The bench the boys are sitting on is one of many still doing duty for Sooke Community Association, and the big old hall is still in use for many community activities and sports, though basketball is no longer in vogue.

PUBLIC NOTICE

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. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act.

Britt Santowski photos

Fling fun

Mezzo-soprano Marion Newman, above, thrilled the crowd with her voice at the Philly Fling on Sunday, while, below, “Her Majesty the Queen” appeared and read a poem. Mayor Wendal Milne, centre was guest conductor, and Maestro Norman Nelson led the orchestra.

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.

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. 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.

Please send sports tips to Britt Santowski at: news@sookenewsmirror.com

SK8 and BMX Jam a crashing success

Photos by Gail Nash (above) and Britt Santowski (below)

Now the dog and pony show can actually include the pony. Or horse. Horse Agility is “an up-and-coming horse activity that is gaining popularity,” says Janine Wittach, owner of Cherry Lane Equine. At this event, the riderless horse responds to its owners commands and navigates an obstacle course. It “creates a curiosity and obedience in a horse” as well as a strong relationship between horse and owner. Pictured above, Shelly Donaldson and Heidi navigating an obstacle that involves walking through boxes containing some scattered rocks, and then finishing through the last box filled with water and little yellow duckies. Shelly and Heidi won the High Point Sr. award. Below is a decorative horse, ready for its performance.

The SK8 and BMX Jam, hosted by SEAPARC at the Sooke SK8 Park, was a crashing summer success. From upper right, clockwise, “Moses” and his skateboard become separated as the crowd looks on (right, lower). Seamus grabs his board and practices between sessnions (lower centre) while an unidentified boarder (whose helmet probably fell off) gets some air. “Matt” lands a move for the judges, while a BMX’er also gets some air time.

ThroTTle TherAPy

Doing the group thing There’s magic in motorcycling when riding in groups Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

I’ve done it with a group of students, I’ve done it with hundreds, and I’ve done it with just one other. Group riding, done well, can be a beautiful thing.

Creating a group

At the Vancouver Island Safety Council, we had three signals, all using the horn. One honk for regular usage; two for signal lights left on after executing a turn; and, three to indicate the group needed to pull over where it was safe and legal to do so. Four, if you count the “thumbs up” signal we’d all give before heading off. Since standard horns have limited reach, you may need to adjust your communication signals according to the size and needs of your group.

Staggering

Understanding staggered formation is a column in and of itself. For the purposes of this column, let me just say that shifting from a staggered double lane ride to a single formation ride is usually determined by the rider ahead of you. And if the rider ahead of you falls out of formation, your job is not to “correct” them; instead, you try to figure out the reason, and if there is none, fall in formation with them. Safety comes from staggered formation, not from singular oneupmanship.

Packing

Your bike’s tool kit Emergency first aid kit Rain gear Cell phone A bottle of water A tank of gas

Dos and don’ts

Do ensure your bike is mechanically sound. Do position yourself one second behind the rider staggered ahead of you. Don’t ride side by side. Ever. Do your own shoulder checks whenever changing lanes, lane position, turning, stopping or starting. Do ultimately think for yourself. Even in a group, the bottom line is you must ride your own ride, and think for yourself. Do fill your tank. Do empty your bladder before you go.

Doing it

If you want to experience a group ride, there are several coordinated rides still to come this summer.

July 21

Inaugural Canadian Women’s Ride Day This ride is organized and hosted by West Coast ROAR to “support, encourage and empower one another.” It starts at 2490 Trans Canada Highway, Mill Bay, at 10:30 a.m. Registration at 9:30 a.m. Fee is $10 and includes a drink and a hotdog. $20 if you want the t-shirt. Men are invited to attend the post-ride events on location. “Look, 100 Sexy Beautiful Women on bikes.... Good God guys, don’t miss this one!” writes Greer Stewart, one of the ROAR owners ,about this event.

August 4/5

The Memorial Road Ride Promoted by Sooke’s Kenco, our neighbourhood motorcycle shop, this ride happens on Sunday/Monday August 4/5. It’s a ride presented through the Victoria Motorcycle Club, and is described as “A fun, scenic, road ride. Everyone welcome, overnighting in Port Alberni staying at the Best Western-Barclay Hotel.” To sign up, go to the Sooke Legion on Eustace Road at 9 a.m. on the morning of the ride. It costs $10.00 per bike (excluding accommodation and meals of course), and breakfast will be served at $5 a head. For more information, call Ken at 250642-3924.

Sunday, Aug 25

The Miltary Police National Motorcycle Relay Ride is on it’s fifth year of doing a coast-tocoast fund-raising ride for underprivileged children. At this point, it’s too late to ride up for the Newfoundland departure, but you can probably still get in on the Vancouver Island leg. On Sunday, Aug 25 they are doing a 6 hour ride from Comox to Victoria, meeting up at CFB. For location and confirmation of dates, visit mpnmrr.ca.

Newspapers alive and well Canadians want their community newspapers Suzanne Raitt

Newspapers Canada

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

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

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

ho What Wh W

When W ere h y

Who goes where matters. A lot. The most experienced riders need to be strategically positioned at the front (“Lead”) and the back (“Tailgunner” or “Sweep”) of the group. Experienced is not necessarily defined by mileage but by a mature understanding of their own limits, and the limits of their motorcycle. Further, like most great leaders, they need to be primarily concerned about the people in the group and less so on their own grandiosity. Why? Because the least experienced riders need their guidance, not their ego. To best serve them, those with less experience need to be tucked in between the middle and end of the group. Should a less experienced rider run into difficulties on the road, they can pull over and be seen (and assisted) by the experienced tail gunner — without affecting the whole. Before the ride, be sure everyone knows where the pit stops are. They will be defined by the need of the least experience rider. Same with fuel stops. They will be defined by the group’s smallest gas tank. Personally, I find groups between five and eight to be most manageable. Should there be more riders (like some fundraising rides have hundreds of participants), I’d still recommend taking the initiative to define the group of riders you want to travel with. This way, if a traffic control nuisance (like a traffic light or a logging truck) splits up the group, then the small group can pull aside where it is safe and legal to do so, and re-convene at its convenience.

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

We lead the way in print and online.

Local news. Delivered.

The U12 Sooke Strikers, from left to right: Carolin Hoefele, Faith Knoles, Emma Chalmers, Georgia Jackson, Ella Dennett, Sky Langdon, Ingrid Johnston from Food Bank, Grace Bishop, Coach Laura Lockhart and Alex Peters. The U12 Sooke Strikers, a local soccer team, recently got in on the Sooke Food Bank action. They did a bottle drive and, according to coach Laura Lockhart, raised $530 for the food bank. The U12 Sooke Strikers and the U8’s are attempting to win the BMO Team of the Week (http://bmosoccer. com/en/team?t=1449 and http://bmosoccer.com/en/team?t=1420 respectively), so that they can raise funds towards a new (and less waterlogged) soccer field. To stay tuned to their efforts, visit the U12’s Facebook’s page (search for “Sooke Soccer Club” on Facebook.com).
