Containers: Proposed bylaw would restrict use Continued from A1

residences have them. If the bylaw goes through, they would be required to remove their containers and either construct a new building or rent space at a storage warehouse. For business people like Fear and Ted Arbour, who each own storage facilities as well as rent out shipping containers, the bylaw is seen as a clear “anti-business” message from the city. “As always the commercial or business properties in Campbell River will have to take the brunt of the financial end,” Arbour wrote in a letter to the Mirror. “Campbell River is far from being back on its

feet business-wise and now (we’re) getting hit with this?” Fear and Arbour both agree that shipping containers are not suitable for residential properties, but they’re firmly against the bylaw restricting them to industrial properties only. Businesses use them because they provide secure storage in a relatively small space. And adding onto a building or constructing something new is often too expensive for business owners still climbing out of a lengthy recession. “ B u s i n e s s e s h av e enough of a day-today struggle,” wrote Arbour. “Why not offer help instead of hindering them. Aren’t there

enough empty commercial spaces in Campbell River?” And what’s the alternative, asked Fear, if businesses aren’t prepared to go along with the bylaw? Businesses could use commercial trailers or tents, and there’s nothing in the new bylaw to prevent their use. And there is another good use for shipping containers: advertising. At the far end of the city, in the industrial park, Mayor Walter Jakeway owns CR Storage Warehouses and uses a shipping container by the roadside to support the advertising sign for his business. The public meeting takes place Tuesday, 6:30 p.m., at City Hall.

Van Huong (Mark) Nguyen, 49, is charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and obstructing a police officer. He’s been released from custody on a recognizance and is due to appear in provincial court at a later date. On July 11, a 25-yearold local man was arrested on suspicion of running a dial-a-dope operation. He was allegedly found with a small amount of

cocaine and is facing a possible trafficking charge. His name has not yet been released and he’s due to appear in court at a future date.

Vandals couldn’t wait for stop sign unveiling CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || FRIDAY, FRIDAY, JULY 19, 2013 || CAMPBELL

Kristen Douglas

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Vandals made their mark on a brand-new stop sign just days before the new four-way stop at Merecroft and Alder was rolled out. The sign at the south end of the intersection on Alder Street was ruined before it had even been uncovered. The two new stop signs – both on Alder Street – as well as small white signs reading ‘4-Way’ at all four stop signs were put in place last week but were covered with orange wrapping. The cover on the damaged stop sign was partially ripped away and the sign was tagged with white spray paint. Drew Hadfield, the city’s transportation manager, found out the sign had been vandal-

ized just prior to the stop sign’s unveiling but said it would not delay the opening of the four-way which was expected to go into effect Thursday morning as the Mirror was going to press. “We will be putting a new sign up when we open it up, at an additional cost of approximately $100 to replace (the sign),” Hadfield said Wednesday. The new traffic pattern was approved by council June 25 in response to a presentation to council from Alder Street resident Ted Haylow. Haylow urged council to take measures to slow down what’s become heavy traffic on Alder Street. “Ever since the reconfiguration to the lights on Dogwood and the modifications to the roadways on Murphy Street and Highway 19A, Alder

Street has become a freeway for speeders and heavy traffic,” Haylow said. “Cars constantly speed, tail gate and most of all, drive without due care and attention. Our patience has run out; they use stop signs to slow traffic on four-lane roads in Palm Springs. Let’s learn something to save our roads and our lives.” Hadfield said while the four-way won’t necessarily affect the volume of traffic it will force motorists to change their driving patterns. “The four-way stop will provide a break in the flow of traffic along Alder between Rockland and 2nd,” Hadfield said. “In addition to that, it will assist traffic on Merecroft entering on to Alder Street. Four-way stops provide traffic control but are not generally

The city is reminding cyclists and pedestrians to be aware of the change and make eye contact with drivers before proceeding through the intersection. LIVE IN CONCERT

Further improvements to Alder Street may still be coming. This fall, the city is conducting an Alder Street corridor study to look at longterm traffic management along the route. The study will look at impacts on adjacent streets and other main routes and include a public consultation process to gather community input.

City won’t demolish abandoned home despite complaints Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Travelling down Colwyn Street there’s one house that stands out among the others. The home at 501 Colwyn is abandoned and unkempt, which has raised the ire of some concerned neighbours. Dennis Brunt said there have been complaints from nearby residents for years but no one knew how to resolve the situation. So he went to city hall. His first e-mail was to City Clerk Peter Wipper on June 8, 2011. Brunt noted in his e-mail that he and his wife “walk by (the house) almost every day and it is a disgrace.” Along with long grass, weeds, overgrown trees and a mossy roof, there were several old vehicles

parked in the yard. Wipper said since that time the city has been on the property and the derelict vehicles were removed, except for a red, orange, and yellow striped commercial-style bus with the destination head reading ? Mystery Trip ?, which is parked in the back of the house. Brunt said the city needs to do more. “I have contacted the city numerous times and they say they can do nothing about it,” Brunt said. “A house like this lowers property values on a street. It is abandoned and is extremely messy and unsightly. Who would want that kind of place in their neighbourhood?” The city says it has limited powers when it comes to dealing with

abandoned houses. Wipper said the city can use its remediation tool which gives a property owner 30 days from the time of notice to clean up its property, whether it be cutting the grass, taking down an old dilapidated shed, removing garbage from the property, or cutting overgrown hedges. If the property owner does not comply, the city will go in and do the work at the owner’s expense. Wipper said in the case of the Colwyn house, the owner has been served notice to tidy up his property. “The owner has been given 30 days, I believe that’ll expire in a week and a half so they have some more time to tidy up the grounds,” Wipper said. “I know we have one resident that feels it should be demolished but no, we wouldn’t be demolishing the house at this point so long as it’s secure. But we would want the property tidied up so it meets our bylaw standards.” Wipper said the city understands that the house is indeed vacant but because it’s boarded up, it’s deemed safe and secure by the city. Brunt can’t believe the city’s response. “I find it kind of amazing that the city can deem

that house acceptable,” Brunt said. “It looks like the roof ’s going to cave in.” And after doing some research, Brunt said it appears the owner of the

property is out of compliance with the city bylaw, which he said the city is not enforcing. He noted that the city bylaw regarding unsightly properties,

section 5.16, states that “every owner of real property shall maintain the general appearance and repair of the real property to the standards of other similar proper-

Drive Smart BC The Older Pedestrian Older pedestrians are less likely to survive a collision than younger people. It is also a fact of life that aging brings with it a reduction 2x14 in perceptual abilities such as poorer vision, depth perception and increased chance of Tyee confusion. Add badChev walking habits to the mix and an already risky situation becomes worse. All of the things that we teach our children to survive in traffic are equally applicable to older pedestrians. Use a sidewalk if one is available, otherwise, walk facing the traffic. This will either remove you from the normal path of motor vehicles or allow you to watch them approach and decide to get out of the way if necessary. Cross at intersections or in marked crosswalks after stopping to look and listen carefully. Hearing loss coupled with very quiet automobiles requires that an older pedestrian use all of the senses available to them to avoid stepping out in front of an approaching vehicle. If you are walking at twilight or in the dark, at least wear light coloured clothing. Better still, wear reflective clothing and carry a flashlight. Consider the purchase of a flashing light band meant to be worn on an arm or a clip on light for your belt. You cannot be too visible!


Habitat for Humanity announces site of its next Campbell River build Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Habitat for Humanity is building its second Campbell River home at 480 Hilchey Road. The property, which is a few houses east of Penfield Road and Hilchey, was recently purchased by Habitat for Humanity and is unique to the nonprofit. “The lot on Hilchey is very narrow,” said Deb Roth, executive director of Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North. “The property is zoned for a duplex but it’s very long and thin. It’s only about 50 feet wide.” Roth said the habitat steering committee has been pitching ideas

to get the community involved and is considering holding a contest among local engineers as to how the home should be designed. Roth said she hopes to have signs up on the property July 22 advertising the site as the future home of a Habitat for Humanity house. “It’s not really a ground breaking (because) it’s so difficult to engage volunteers over the summer so we’re probably going to push for a September launch,” Roth said. As part of the launch, Habitat for Humanity plans to hold a public information session September 21 at 2 p.m. at the Campbell River Community Centre. Volunteers

ing on the city to donate land. Roth made a presentation to city council in late April and at that time Habitat was offered two pieces of property. Habitat chose a piece of land on Westgate Road and a report from city staff will be in front of city council at Tuesday’s council meeting outlining how much the Development Cost Charges would be that Habitat wants the city to waive as well as what providing the land would entail and other possible costs to the city. But above all, Roth is trying to drive home the point of how important it is for the city and Habitat for Humanity to work together to try and secure funding that is available for affordable housing. Roth said that Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty committed $253 million for affordable housing each year for five years in the 2013 budget. “I want them to understand there’s money available for our community but we can’t get it,” Roth said. “A non-profit can’t go after it but all of us together can work to draw money here.”

But before that can happen Habitat for Humanity needs to raise $200,000 to build both homes. To kick off the fundraising campaign, Habitat has partnered with WalMart which will be selling paper bricks for one week, from July 19-July 25. Wal-Mart shoppers will be asked at the check-out if they would like to purchase a brick for the wall to help Habitat build the duplex. Wal-Mart is also promoting Habitat’s Kids Crooked House fundraiser. The crooked house is a playhouse built by volunteers at the Campbell River Habitat for Humanity ReStore. The goal of this campaign is to raise $5,000 towards the Hilchey build through $5 donations. With each donation, the donor has the chance to win the playhouse through a draw that will take place once the $5,000 goal is reached. Roth said that while Habitat is thrilled to finally be getting its second Campbell River build underway – the first was a duplex on Maple Street in 2009 – she is still wait-

will be recruited and two families selected for the duplex. Roth said Habitat is aiming to start building in June, 2014. Families selected to own a Habitat home contribute 500 hours of sweat equity toward the purchase of their home, meaning they help build the home, and in return are provided with affordable, interest-free loans with no down payment. Monthly payments towards the loan are based on approximately 25 per cent to 30 per cent of gross monthly household income. Family selection criteria includes housing need, ability to pay a mortgage and willingness to partner with Habitat.

Band launches campaign to restore poles Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre on Quadra Island is mounting a fundraising campaign to return its welcome poles to back where they belong. The poles are sitting in storage inside the museum waiting to be restored but the project has a $51,000 budget. Jodi Simkin, executive director of the Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre, who spoke at the Strathcona Regional District board meeting July 10, said it’s important the poles are resurrected. “We need to get the poles back up,” Simkin said. “Traditionally, they’re used to welcome visitors.” The poles also help showcase the work of local aboriginal artists, strengthen the historical understanding of First Nations culture, expand the aboriginal public art inventory, and establish a legacy project in memory of the three original carvers. The poles, which are called the Cook Poles, were commissioned in the late 1960s and erected in 1978 in front of the Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre to commemorate the Walkus Poles. The Walkus Poles were gifted by Chief Numus Walkus to John Dick of the We Wai Kai and sat on the beach until the 1950s when they were removed by the City of Campbell River to be restored. Unfortunately, one of the poles was destroyed during the restoration. Now the Cook Poles are waiting to go through a similar process. “They’ve been removed

from outside and stored in humidic conditions inside, at 43 degrees celsius,” Simkin said. “They’re now at the point they can be restored successfully. They need to be re-carved and resculpted.” The lead carver is Brad Assu and it’s expected that once the restoration process gets underway, it could take 75 days to finish. Simkin said she would welcome a donation from the Strathcona Regional District towards the project. Quadra Director Jim Abram said he has donated $5,000 towards the Nuyumbalees Cultural Centre from his electoral area’s budget. Brenda Leigh, director for Area D (Oyster Bay), said the $50,000 in the Area D grant-in-aid budget has already been allocated but added that if there are “any groups at the last minute that don’t need the money or have a bit left over, I could send it your way.” The Nuyumbalees Cultural C entre in Cape Mudge, opened in 1979 as the Kwagiulth Museum.

Our View

VIHA cost-cutting wounds seniors Everyone wants to keep health care costs down, but we have to take a second look at the Vancouver Island Health Authority’s decision to cut hours at community labs and cut out home visits for those who are unable to access labs on their We say: Need to own. Years ago, our health care system accommodate, began to move away from the attitude not alienate our that institutionalization is best. Cutting costs by amalgamating lab services seniors might make good financial sense, but it doesn’t make sense when we want to promote good, preventative medical care. There are many more support services available to help

keep our senior population at home longer, under the care of family members or even under their own care where possible, in order to keep our health care system from being overburdened. Removing services that allow easier access to health care is a start down a slippery slope to a decline in the overall health of our senior population that we don’t care to see. As the “sandwich generation” works to put kids through university while taking care of elderly parents, the availability of home lab technician visits or weekend lab hours is just one more service that allows those of all generations to maintain good health. Seniors are the people that helped build our health care system. Centralizing lab services or leaving them to the

private sector only helps to reinforce the belief the system is now abandoning them. The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, in its Make Health Last campaign, states that Canadians are living longer, but not necessarily healthier. It says on average, we spend our final 10 years dealing with sickness and disease. However, our health care decisions can have an impact on how healthy our final years are, and the services we are able to access will be a big part of that overall picture. With our quickly aging population, VIHA must begin now to look for ways to accommodate, rather than alienate our seniors. – Black Press


We needed leadership

Re: Strathcona board agrees to cooperate with city request for annexing information Let it be known that (Area D director) Ms. Leigh does not speak for all property owners that have an invested interest in providing services and valuation in Area D. It had occured to myself and many others that it was in Ms. Leigh’s best interest to proceed with the sewer installation in the most cost efficient and timely manner. By her own lack of leadership that time has come and gone. Now those that care ultimately for the environment will be subject to the emotional, irrational reactive state of Ms. Leigh until this matter is resolved. I believe she is of the particular psychologic makeup of being a critical/controller with ultimately her own best interests in mind. She has never displayed such fight response until the prospect of losing her power over Area D by the annexation from Campbell River. Clearly she would have served her community and herself better by adhering to the wishes of her voting constituents in 2006, not fatiguing this sewer process into non-existence. Her reality would be one of a prevailer and leader had she done what served the good of the environment. Continued on A9

I was standing just outside the barrier, at the intersection with Shoppers Row and the Island Highway, when I heard a voice. “You! You’re a reporter aren’t you?” asked realtor Dan Samson as we shook hands. “What would you think if we made all of this green space?” He swept his hand in front of the construction zone to illustrate exactly where he was talking about. It surprised me to hear that, especially from someone who sells real estate and whose business depends on economic development. But Samson is also trea-

surer of the Campbell River Downtown Business Improvement Area and his office stands right beside the construction zone. “Think about it,” he urged. “We could have an almost continuous park from city hall right down to Robert Ostler Park on the foreshore...” He smiled as my brain conjured up the mental image of grass, trees, benches and paths along this stretch of road being torn up as we spoke. The work is part of a downtown redevelopment project. The city is burying most overhead services, replacing old underground services, spiffing up the sidewalks and adding a whole bunch of greenery. And the work coincides with the con-

struction of Seymour Pacific Development’s new office, just up the road from where we stood. I nodded my head in agreement as the image of Samson’s vision became a little clearer in my head, and he continued on with the sales pitch. By turning this area into green space, he said, the wonky intersection by Chances Casino would be improved, traffic pressures would likely lessen for Alder Street residents, it would make the area far more friendly for pedestrians and their four-legged friends, and there would be a nice green belt stretching from the sea to city hall. It’s a great idea, but destined to be paved over by the city and driven over by motorists who can’t imagine being

inconvenienced for an extra minute. It’s also unfortunate for Alder residents who are fed up with the higher traffic volumes and speeding commuters – largely created by the stop light nightmare on nearby Dogwood Street which runs parallel to Alder. The new construction won’t do a thing about traffic on Alder street and just to make sure the residents are really ticked off, the city recently painted new road lines on Alder just below 7th Avenue. The new lines effectively eliminate all roadside parking for residents’ guests which, in a way, does affect their property values. Perhaps if they had a new park at the end of the street, they wouldn’t feel as if they were being “driven crazy.”

I don’t agree with limiting the use of shipping containers Further to reading the article in the July 5, 2013 newspaper with regards to the City of Campbell River cracking down on the use of shipping containers, I agree on limited use of shipping containers on smaller residential properties but when it comes to properties of ¾ of an acre or more I certainly do not agree. People with larger properties should be able to put a container out of sight and make use of them conservatively. What really concerns me is that there are some people who will want to make homes or smaller residences out of containers. I’ve visited and viewed in Victoria, BC a con-

tainer residence which was extremely nice and very affordable to make. It would have had to go through proper channels of building permits, engineering, electrical, etc. It looks like to me that Campbell River will lose this opportunity for more affordable housing. As always the commercial or business properties in Campbell River will have to take the brunt of the financial end. Campbell River is far from being back on its feet business wise and now getting hit with this. One thing for sure higher property taxes being doled out each year along with taking

away our privileges at the same time, a double whammy for sure. Maybe if getting building permits didn’t take so long and the expenses and the amount of hoops you are required to jump through to get one and very high Development Cost charges (DCC’s) lowered then there would be less containers being used. Maybe the thought should be much like the home based businesses, where eventually they’ll want to work out of commercial space instead of their home. If commercial is left alone, eventually they’ll want an addition or a totally new larger building.

Businesses have enough of a day to day struggle. Why not offer help instead of hindering them. Aren’t there enough empty commercial spaces in Campbell River? When it comes to Industrial properties they won’t be able to stack containers more than one high, yet in Vancouver on the Industrial properties they stack them eight high. How ridiculous as they should be at least a minimum of two or three high. Now let’s talk about public area zonings. All of the above zonings can’t use containers or they have restrictions but no mention of Pub-

lic Areas at all. Public areas would be the City Hall, schools, ice arena, public works yard, RCMP, etc. I guess it’s OK for them to have containers but not you. Maybe the City of Campbell River should spend more time looking around town at vehicles with no wheels, campers or commercial type trailers being used for who knows what or the temporary shelters around, some of them look awful. If you’re concerned about losing some of your privileges, I’d suggest you voice your opinion at the Public Hearing prior to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday July 23, 2013 at City Hall. Ted Arbour

The trade of electrician requires patience, precision, and caution as well as a great deal of manual dexterity. Electricians must also have good colour vision in order to distinguish between the different electrical wires when connecting them: red with red, black with black — we don’t want anything to go up in flames! Electricians are also skilled in renovating outmoded electrical systems. Wiring and devices age over time, and during a renovation project these elements should be replaced by materials that conform to current standards. The work of electricians is no longer limited to supplying power to lights and heating devices. They now install cabling for telephones, televisions, alarm systems, computer networks, and electronic gadgets which require a stable power supply. Some people like to do their own electrical work in order to save money, but it is never a good idea. Imagine, for a second, that you have lost your home and all its contents in a fire because you messed up an electrical job. It’s just not worth the risk. What’s more, your insurance company could penalize you because the work was not done by a qualified electrician.

Summer music on Cortes Island Cortes Island Music Festival is an annual two day music festival; established in 2001 by Milan Starcic, an enthusiastic local musician that recognized the need for smaller acts to a have a place to perform and grow. Using the flat bed of a truck as a stage in a field provided by a friend and some help from fellow music enthusiasts the festival has grown to become a special part the island’s summers. Over the years the festival changed hands and eventually re-located in 2008 from Manson’s Landing to the backyard of Trude’s Cafe in Whaletown. Trude, who was recently crowned the Queen of Cortes, has continued to lend her beautiful property to the festival for the past five years.

out Trude’s Cafe, the grounds are surrounded by forest and stream. Local and travelling vendors set up on the grass overlooking the community built main stage that has a giant maple tree for a back drop. Look forward to a laid back early afternoon start and as the sun goes down, we pick up the pace with the electronic acts dance party at the Gorge Hall. Day passes are available and kids under 12 are free. They ask that you donate $40 for entry or bring an item for the silent auction.  You can see links to the full line-up and get any other information at: and at

The festival is the largest free outdoor art exhibition on the North Island and provides an excellent venue for artists and art admirers to connect and interact. Artists working in a wide variety of mediums will share their inspirations with the public creating an exciting cross-section of the arts on the North Island, including painting, carving, pottery, jewelry and so much more. The concept of the festival is to keep the registration fees low, making it easily affordable for local artists, while offering free public admission to create a spectacular event that will surely entertain and inspire. The festival is growing and is poised to become a landmark event for the city of Campbell River with the addition this year of a performance stage and a theatrical performance by the Black Crow Theater Company, as well as musicians dispersed throughout the grounds. The exhibition will be accompanied by The Pink Salmon Festival happening just down the street at The Robert Osler Park which will also have its own array of entertainment and family fun creating a truly unique day in Campbell River. Since its inception the River City Arts Fest has been gaining momentum and the ultimate goal is to create a festival that will become a cornerstone for arts and entertainment on Vancouver Island. Another addition to this year festival will be a culinary arts component which will feature food specials from own our local, downtown restauranteurs. The menus will include: Misty Fins: Pulled Pork Sandwich $6 & Italian Soda’s $3 On Line Gourmet: Poutine $7 Banners: 24 Flavors of Hard Ice-cream Whether you’re interested in buying art, being inspired, or simply just having a fun time with the kids while enjoying the educational qualities of the festival, it will be a great opportunity to get out and experience the amazing artistic talent of the North Island and surrounding communities.

Celebrating more than a century of farming on Cortes Island tributing to the economic growth of our agriculture sector,” says Minister of Agriculture Pat Pimm. John Manson arrived at Cortes Island from the Shetland Islands in 1887 and joined his older brother Mike. They set up a small trading post at the site known today as Manson’s Landing. Not long after, 20-yearold John walked the island looking for a homestead site. In 1888, he found 46.5 hectares (115 acres) of suitable land that he later purchased. The farm raised sheep, pork and poultry and produced

It’s been an excellent growing season, yet there’s one crop disappointing Cortes Island farmer Mike Manson. “The apples,” he says. “There’s not a lot this year. It’s like that all over the island.” The blue berries and veggies are doing just fine at Sunny Brae Farm, yet the apple trees – some more than 100 years old – blossomed too early when the bees weren’t buzzing and the natural result is, well, a lot less fruit. That’s a farmer’s life and

The Century Farm Award was presented Sunday during the Museum of C ortes Island’s celebration of the 125th anniversary of the arrival of the Manson brothers on Cortes. Manson’s Landing is named after the family. “We we re pre tt y excited to receive the award – there’s a lot of pride in this family farm and part of the pleasure is sharing it with others. It’s a beautiful place by the water,” says Manson, who joked about the farm’s longevity. “By attrition you get recognized!

potatoes, vegetables, apples, eggs, cream and butter. Produce was sold to local families and logging camps as far away as Vancouver. The first orchard was planted in 1908. Today, many of these trees still survive and are in full production. In 1982, Nicol Manson, son of John Manson, planted 240 apple trees. In 1984, high bush blueberries were added as a crop. Today, Mike is the third generation Manson to act as the farm’s steward. The farm has been in production for 106 of the past 125 years and Mike says it was his father’s vision for the farm to keep moving forward. That’s why Sunny Brae became fully organic in 1992. The farm is primarily known for its

Predators on medal prowl The North Island Predators were at it again, at one of the biggest meets of the year. The Comox Valley Sharks and Campbell River Killer Whales came together to compete at the BC Provincial AAA long course championships at UBC earlier this month. With 25 swimmers, one of the biggest teams ever from the region, the Predators brought home 24 medals, with five gold, nine silver and 10 bronze. The meet star ted strong for the Predators, with the 12-, 13- and 14-year-old girls competing in the 800 freestyle. Gabrielle Wolfe and Amelia Elder were two of the first girls to race in the marathon of an event, both putting up huge best times, and getting themselves placed in the top eight. Brooke Lamoureux and Mackenzie Paddington were placed high enough to get themselves into the final. Lamoureux took control of the race from the very beginning, winning the event in a best time, and showed everyone that she was some-

one to watch heading into Nationals and Age Group Nationals. Paddington put together one of her best 800 freestyles of the year, sneaking onto the podium in third, beating out some of the top distance freestylers in province. Sydney Boyle had one of the most exciting races of the first night of the competition. After getting a place in the final because of a late scratch, Boyle swam her way to her first AAA podium, placing third. Other medal winners from the 1st night of competition were Ben Neufeld with silver in the 100 backstroke, Lamoureux with gold in the 200 freestyle, Conner Skuse with a third in the 200 breaststroke, and David Palmer with his first AAA individual podium, a bronze in the 200 breaststroke. Day two was all about Skuse. The Killer Whales swimmer had a busy night of competition with both the 1500 freestyle and 200 butterfly on the agenda for finals. He started with a big win in the 1500 freestyle,

winning by over 30 seconds in the longest race in the competition. Next up for the young swimmer was the 200 butterfly, where he got himself on the podium again, placing second with a landmark best time. Paddington also was able to reach the podium on Day two with a bronze in the 200 IM, and a silver medal along with her teammates Jordyn Ryan, Lamoureux, and Jenna Beaudin in the 4x200 freestyle relay. Saturday night of finals started off with a great swim by Melayna Beaudin in the 100 freestyle, placing third overall. She would reach the podium again in the 200 backstroke, earning another bronze, and achieving her first AGN qualifying time. Paddington was also at it again, winning the 100 freestyle in a personal best time. She also just missed finishing under the one-minute mark in one of the glamour races of swimming.

Lamoureux was the queen of the distance events at the meet, winning the 400 freestyle, with Paddington placing second just behind her.

The Mount Washington Tube Park is moving to a new location beside the Alpine Lodge and will be expanding its operations this coming winter.

Tube park to move, expand The Ozone Tubing Park will literally be packed up and moved over the next few months to an area being prepped beside the mountain’s Alpine Lodge. The move a l lows Mount Washington to open an additional ski run at the old Ozone site which brings the total number of runs in Easy Acres to six.

“The benefits of the move are two fold,” explains Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “Our Tubing Park will become more accessible for guests next winter and increase in size. “The move then allows us to open up more terrain and an improved experience for beginner skiers and boarders using

Easy Acres.” The project, budgeted at close to $750,000, will be completed and ready for opening day this winter season. Preparation work for the new Tubing Park had already begun in earnest two years ago during the initial Easy Acres development. That development came in just shy of $3

million and introduced skiers and boarders to four new Magic Carpet lifts and a complete overhaul to Mount Washington’s beginner skiing and snowboarding product. The new Tubing Park, located on the way down a run called The Big Easy, will bring a fifth Magic Carpet to the mountain and increase uphill tubing capacity from 250 to a whopping 2,000 riders per hour. This translates into minimal wait times and increases the number of runs tubers can enjoy over the course of a two hour pass. “Our new Tubing Park increases the value our guests receive significantly,” adds Sharpe. “On top of the increased capacity, tubers will now have five lanes of sliding to choose from versus three lanes at the old park. We will also have more variety in the types of sliding lanes available.” Tubers will still be able to enjoy the classic straightforward, smooth downhill lanes they’ve grown to know and love. In addition to these, steeper lanes with more speed and lanes with rollers and whoop-dee-doos will added for thrills and excitement. “We introduced more adventurous features last winter to some of the lanes and our tubers loved it.” In addition to expanded terrain for Easy Acres and more lanes for tubers, the new development will improve overall accessibility around the resort. Access to facilities, restaurants, rentals and retail is expected to improve significantly due to the Tubing Park’s relocation.

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. The reason for the bylaw is to increase the tax exemption for projects within the City Centre Downtown (as defined in Downtown Revitalization Tax Exemption Bylaw No. 3392, 2009 shown on the plan below). The purpose is the revitalization of the downtown through the promotion of both multi-family and commercial development.

The maximum term of a tax exemption within the Downtown is 5 Years and 7 years for LEED gold or platinum projects within the Special Improvement Area. Comments will be accepted until July 31, 2013.

Make Your Home Safe for Independent Living

It soon be time to cross the Passage. Saturday, Aug. 17 is the date of the 7th annual Discovery Passage Passage. The crossing from Campbell River to Quadra Island has become a popular summer event for a variety of human powered watercraft. The “Passage Passage “ draws as many as 150 participants young and old, accompanied by the Coast Guard and safety boats in a flotilla that comes ashore at Cape Mudge Village where a traditional greeting welcomes the paddlers. The event which is timed to the tide will commence at 2 p.m., at the same spot as previous years, the marine ways on the waterfront side of 871

Island Highway. All craft should be in the water by 1:45 p.m. Pallan Timber has given permission to use their adjacent parking lot. If the lot is full drop your boat at the launch site (in the parking lot) where a crew will be there to assist you, then proceed to Ostler Park. This is a fun event, not a fund raiser. It’s free and non competitive; no motors are allowed. For those interested in participating, registration which is mandatory for safety reasons, can be done online at or for anyone without Internet access registration can be made by calling 250830-4056.

Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for


easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.

In Loving Memory

Christine Margaret Lee

Dec. 24, 1920-July 20, 2003 You gave us many things in life Gifts both great and small, But most of all You gave us love The greatest gift of all.

Joseph Nicholas


July 31, 1920July 9, 2013 It is with sad hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of a treasured gentleman, Joe Antonelli, just days before his 93rd birthday. Joe was born in Newton, BC on July 31, 1920 to Nick and Della Antonelli. His schooling began in Newton and continued at Cloverdale High School. As the oldest of five siblings, he was their leader for many adventures around then rural Whalley. He developed a keen knowledge and deep appreciation of the outdoors that grew throughout his life. He was no stranger to hard work including shake cutting until 1938 when he began work at Green Timbers Forest Nursery. He cleared trails and sites for fire lookouts, arriving in Campbell River in 1939 with the BC Forest Service. He moved to Courtenay working for Wood Bros. Logging and Comox Logging at Comox Lake until enlisting in the Air Force during WWII, where he served his country for four years as an air frame mechanic and learning and developing a passion for flying. Post war, he returned to the BC Forest Service, planting trees and felling snags. He became a camp foreman at Qualicum and Horn Lake. He advanced to forest ranger with postings throughout BC until he left the service in Pemberton where he met Frances Decker who became his wife and the mother of their three children. He was self employed; first sawmilling and then trucking throughout the Pemberton Valley until the remarkable age of 79. Joe returned to Campbell River where he and his brother Ken, spent countless hours revisiting people and places from their early years. His huge heart had plenty of room for new friends, especially Amy and Dieter and namesake ‘Joe’ Voss. Joe was predeceased by his wife Frances, brother Marsh and grandson Corey. He had a gift of touching the lives of all who knew him. He is survived by his sister Grace, brothers Ken (Lin) and Dan (Deidre); his children Debbie, Nick and David; grandchildren Tyranne, Anja and Franklin as well as many extended family members and longtime and new dear friends who will fondly remember and miss him. The family extends special thanks to Dr. de Bruin and Janine from Palliative Care, for their support and understanding during Joe’s short illness. A Memory of Life gathering will be held on Sunday, July 21 at 1:00p.m. at Eagles Hall, 1999 14th Ave. in Campbell River. A memorial in Pemberton will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Joe’s memory to a charity of your choice.
