Hotrodders furious after targeted ticketing Royal Oak centre clamps down on decade-old classic car social after parking woes, merchant complaints Edward Hill News staff
Every Saturday night they roll into the Royal Oak Shopping Centre – Ford pickups from the 1930s, deuce coups, Packards, 1950s Chevys. For more than a decade, Francelli’s Coffee House has been the social hub for classic car collectors from across Greater Victoria. But last Saturday, the regular summer meet and greet went sour. After Victoria’s classic car regulars basked in the glory of polished chrome at Northwest Deuce Days, they cruised to Francelli’s for the 5 p.m. coffee. It didn’t take long for Robbins Parking staff to start ticketing cars – hotrods specifically, according to witnesses. Robbins staff handed out less than a dozen parking violation tickets before 30 or 40 classic car collectors drove off. Bob Carter, 68, owner of a 1934 Ford pickup, was barely able to order a coffee. “I walked outside Francelli’s and Robbins was giving me a ticket – I said it’s three hour parking. They just said it’s not allowed. They wouldn’t answer my questions,” Carter said. He refused to let the ticket agent touch his truck. “(Robbins) kept asking ‘who
is in charge of the car show?’ Nobody is in charge. It isn’t a car show. Everyone kept telling them it isn’t a car show,” said Leslie Hume, owner of an original-green 1949 Austin A40, and a regular at Francelli’s. “It was definitely discrimination. Any hotrod they were writing up a ticket.” For many of the classic car owners, the tickets, worth about $32, are a shocking slap to the face by Hansbraun Investments, property manager of seven shopping centres in Saanich. Most of the Saturday night hotrodders are professionals and seniors – the car scene is coffee and sandwiches, not beer and doughnuts. “These aren’t young kids screeching around. These guys are lawyers, doctors, police, old guys with passion for cars. It really is a community,” said Andy Collins, owner of Francelli’s Coffee House for the past two years, which has walls packed with photos of classic cars from locals. “These guys are customers, they spend money here, they are local and all shop here during the week. Why would a lease company try to push business away? The Saturday night car show has been here for years and suddenly they don’t like it?” Hansbraun distributed a letter to Royal Oak Shopping Centre

“These aren’t young kids screeching around. These guys are lawyers, doctors, police, old guys with passion for cars.” – Andy Collins Francelli’s Coffee House merchants in May that said the weekly car shows have never been permitted, they create liability and safety issues, and have a negative affect on businesses and customers. The company warned that vehicles would be ticketed or towed, effective May 25. Victoria Shannon, with Hansbraun Investments and the property manager for Royal Oak Shopping Centre, said the clas-
sic cars, at times more than 100, monopolize too much space, to the point where owners have put up caution tape and brought out lawn chairs. “The car show has been an unauthorized event at the centre for many years. It’s never been allowed and no one asked permission,” Shannon said. “We’ve had so many issues over the years with tenants saying the parking is full and that it’s impacting customers.” Shannon said eight parking tickets were issued Saturday, and two have since been rescinded. The ticketing came after a period of requests and warnings the car show isn’t a permitted event. “I had put it off, but I’ve been hearing from tenants that its getting worse,” she said. “We try not to discriminate against classic cars, at the same

time we can’t let the event take over the parking lot every Saturday afternoon. “It is really difficult as a property manager when one group feels entitled to use the property and not ask permission and doesn’t follow the rules.” Larry Zilinksy, owner of a 1932 Ford Roadster, said he personally talked to merchants to gauge the level of support for the weekly coffee event. Some are against it, but most are in favour, he said. “The merchants say they support (the cars). It brings in money and people,” Zilinksy said. “We thought things had settled down. That was two months ago, but all of a sudden Saturday night there were tickets – on the Saturday night of Deuce Days.”

“As it stands I don’t think I’ll go back. I don’t know if I’ll be ticketed or what,” Zilinsky said. Collins argues that the property manager had authorized the weekly event – for many years as a barbecue night under the previous owner, and then as coffee and sandwiches. “In April out of the blue Hansbraun called and said they don’t want the car show, that its totally illegal and there are safety issues,” he said. “Why has it been going on for 12 years? They’ve let it go on all this time. “It’s a bunch of people who turn up in cars. Arguably they’re here for two hours a week. Coming in and giving tickets is bang out of order.” Shannon said permission has never been granted for a car show. At the same time, she said if the classic car owners can become organized as a group and get the proper insurance, the property manager wants to find a middle ground. In September the Royal Oak Shopping Centre is planing a fundraising event for Cops for Cancer, which is an opportunity to involve classic car owners, she said. “We want to find a way for this to be a positive,” she said.

It remains to be seen if classic car owners will organize and seek accommodation with the shopping centre. As it stands now, fury and outrage is building within the community. Like other classic car owners posting to Hansbraun’s Facbook page, 85-year-old Jim Cain said he won’t shop at Royal Oak. “We spend a lot of money there. It’s a very handy mall,” he said. “Now we live in Gordon Head. If they don’t want us there Saturdays, we won’t go there anymore. “It was a good gathering. People came from all over Victoria. You’d meet friends, drink coffee. A lot people came to see the cars,” said Cain, owner of a 1951 Pontiac. Frank D’Argis said in an email to the News it was embarrassing to watch people on Saturday dig out receipts to prove they were paying customers. “I was equally embarrassed to see several car owners from the U.S.A. ... have to high tail it out of the parking lot before getting a ticket, but not before returning the goods they had purchased from mall businesses,” D’Argis wrote. Art Wood, owner of a 1951 Chevy and a longtime regular at Francelli’s, said for the Saturday night events, he and others kept the hotrods away from parking spaces near Country Grocer, for instance, and strived to share the space with regular shoppers. “I been shopping at Royal Oak mall for 34 years. I’m born and raised here. I support the mall seven days a week with groceries and the drug store,” Wood said. “To turn around and do something like that I don’t understand.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Going in circles for 24 hours Tour de Rock riders take on endurance challenge at UVic Kyle Slavin News staff
Sharon Tiffin/News staff
Saanich Const. Lisa Bruschetta, front left, Saanich police equipment officer Kevin Nunn, Oak Bay reserve Const. Aubrey Blackhall, back left, and Saanich Const. Douglas Franklin are doing a 24 hour ride to raise money for Tour de Rock.
At 1 a.m. Saturday when Doug Franklin’s legs and back are aching, and the end of his 24-hour bike ride is still 12 hours away, he’ll close his eyes for a split second and think about why he’s riding. “Going to Camp Goodtimes and witnessing these kids being kids, and seeing them laughing and smiling and just doing normal things – things that we take for granted every day,” Franklin said of his recent experience visiting the camp for kids battling cancer. “Just knowing that I can be a very, very, very small part of that process and their happiness gives me all the motivation I need to keep pedalling.” Franklin, a Saanich bike cop, is a member of the 2013 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team, and one of four Tour de Rock riders participating in a 24-hour ride around UVic’s Ring Road, beginning Friday at 1 p.m. Saanich police Const. Lisa Bruschetta, Oak Bay reserve Const. Aubrey Blackhall and Saa-
nich police quartermaster, Kevin Nunn, are also riding. “Seeing so many of my adult family and friends who’ve gone through cancer and are in remission, I can’t even imagine how hard that would be for a child,” Bruschetta said. “Sitting there and riding, and maybe having a few aches and pains, can’t compare. We can’t begin to fathom what they’re going through.” The four riders are hoping supporters will riding alongside them over the 24 hours, and donate to help funding pediatric cancer research and support programs. “One hundred per cent of what they donate is going to our kids,” said Bruschetta, a mother of two. “If they don’t have a child, it could be someone that they’re going to support down the road. We’re all eventually going to know someone who has cancer or is remission, so come out and support us to make sure that we either get a cure for this horrible disease, or we support Camp Goodtimes to bring some joy to these children.” In addition to donations being accepted to ride with the team members, there will be other fundraisers happening throughout the 24-hour period. For a $10 donation, you can take a guess on how many laps
around the 1.9-kilometre route team members will ride. The closest guess will win a downtown Victoria night-out package that includes movie tickets, a night at the Chateau Victoria and breakfast at Vista 18. A by-donation hot dog sale will also happen beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday. Bruschetta and Franklin say they feel physically and mentally prepared for the weekend’s tough ride, but know that it’ll require laser focus on their own motivations to ensure they succeed. “I think in the wee hours of the morning is where we’re just going to have to start thinking about our junior riders, the kids that we’re riding for, and the support that they need,” Bruschetta said. “This is not even a dot on the map compared to what these kids are going through – that’s what’s motivating me, that’s what’s mentally preparing me. I’m ready to do this for them,” Franklin added. The day-long ride begins at 1 p.m. today (Friday) and ends at 1 p.m. Saturday at the University of Victoria. The Tour de Rock team will cycle nearly 1,100 kilometres from Port Alice to Victoria this fall, raising money for pediatric cancer research and Camp Goodtimes. email@example.com
Alternative plans pressed for Gyro Park Cadboro Bay resident disputes Saanich park planning proposals Edward Hill News staff
After months of public open houses and workshops, Saanich has laid out a series of potential long-term changes to CadboroGyro Park – three plans that council will eventually select from. But some Cadboro Bay residents are arguing that none of the three options meet the wishes of park users and the community, and have developed a fourth plan. Dwight Waring, who sits on the Cadboro Bay Residents Association parks committee, but developed a plan independently with a small group of community members, said Saanich’s plans change too much, are too expensive and don’t properly address pressing problems, such as flooding in the winter. “In the winter the park floods terribly. Flooding is a big thing,” Waring said. Waring’s plan calls for Saanich to install sump pumps to keep Gyro Park’s fields from flooding in the winter and to purchase a piece of private land attached to the park. His plan opts not to build a wetland pond, as outlined in the district’s options. “The park drains 85 hectares of surrounding land and it has a high water table,” he said. “(Saanich) wants to dig a pond, but the pond won’t solve the problems. They are trying to make it a natural place, but our
analysis is pay for the pumps and the land and it’s still a cheap alternative.” Waring’s plan also calls for the current parking lot to be paved, but left in the same configuration. Saanich wants to reclaim parking closest to the beach for parkland and build more stalls closer to the entrance off Sinclair Road, although that didn’t find strong support in the latest surveys. Waring also argues that building a new road and roundabout for a boat drop-off will be too expensive due to soft peat under the ground. “It will be expensive to build new foundations (for a road). The existing parking is stable,” he said. “New parking will be expensive because of (utility pipe) forcemains and loading. There might be middens and unknown costs.” Waring tried to present his plans as “Option D” at a Gyro Park planning open house. He had to give his presentation outside. “We need an upgrade no doubt, but here it’s so easy to park near the water. I don’t know why they want to make it different for people,” he said. “Users don’t want big changes. They don’t want a park they don’t recognize.” Saanich for its part is emphasizing that any master plan that is approved will be phased in over a decade or more, and remains a work in progress. Gary Darrah, Saanich’s manager of parks planning, said the only changes budgeted within the next year are to pathway surfaces and grades to improve accessibility to picnic and play areas, a $675,000 project funded by Saanich and provincial grants.
Sharon Tiffin/News staff
Kids play on the newly repainted Cadborosaurus at Gyro Park. The play area is slated for expansion under changes proposed for the park. Until a master plan is approved, other potential changes haven’t been budgeted or funded, Darrah said. “It’s important to think of this as a long-term plan. It’s not something that will be implemented in one, two or three years. It will take 10 to 15 years to implement. Improvements will be phased in over time, gradually.” Other key priorities are adding to the play area and creating drainage for the grassy fields. Darrah said the wetland is the best option to control stormwater flooding in what is the lowest area in Cadboro Bay. “It’s not possible to keep the (park) dry during the winter with tides and storm events. The concept is to raise the pathways so people can use the park in the winter,” he said. “The play area floods. One goal is to create a newer, better play area that floods less in winter and can be used year-round. We hope to do that by the end of the year.” One sticking point are the two tennis
courts, which under Saanich’s plan are relocated and shrunk to one. Darrah said the parks department has heard from vocal tennis players and residents about the popularity of the courts. Keeping the courts as-is hasn’t been “unanimous,” Darrah said, but noted the planning options aren’t written in stone. As for purchasing the private Godfrey property, a half acre plot that is amid current parkland, Saanich parks manger Rae Roer said the municipality won’t comment on if it is actively pursuing the land, but the parks department is developing contingency plans with and without the land. “We are always interested (in exploring a purchase) with willing participants. Plans are going ahead regardless. We have a contingency for both,” Roer said.

It may be the middle of summer, but the Salvation Army is already looking ahead to the start of school in September. The service organization’s annual Backpack and School Supply Drive has kicked off and the public is encouraged to help out by donating supplies or cash to the cause. The goal is to accumulate enough of both to provide 5,000 children in need with the items they need to start the school year off right. “We have seen a need for it, which is why we have increased (capacity of) the program,” said Kyla Ferns, communications officer for the Salvation Army.
New partners, including Starbucks and the B.C. Chiropractic Association, have come on board to help expand the campaign’s reach. The program handed out 1,000 filled backpacks on Vancouver Island last year, including 250 in Greater Victoria. More local takeup is expected this year, said Pat Humble, Salvation Army’s community ministries director. The outreach team received a good response when it set up a stand at a pair of recent Music in the Park events in Saanich, he said. Backpacks are stuffed with standard items such as pens, pencils, paper, duotangs and binders, but Ferns said extra items

Tread carefully with ship contract
arious individuals and organizations want the province to force B.C. Ferries management to have three newly announced ships built by a B.C. shipyard. But it’s not as simple as just mandating that, and then standing back and telling the ferry corporation to just “get ’er done.” Even Brian Carter, the president of Seaspan Shipyards, which owns and operates Victoria Shipyards in Esquimalt, acknowledged his company will have to look at what’s being asked for first, before it can determine whether it even has the capacity and infrastructure to commit to such a project. A perfect scenario for the Capital Region would see the ships built in B.C., constructed on time and on budget, and with much of the work and jobs coming to Victoria Shipyards, the largest of Seaspan’s three facilities in this province. But as the ferry corporation found when it commissioned its Celebration-class vessels some years back, international companies are well-equipped to handle such orders and will provide stiff competition for B.C. firms that are only in recent years picking up steam again. We’d love to trumpet the regional economic activity that would be created by the further expansion of shipbuilding capabilities in Esquimalt. At the same time, taxpayers will be footing the bill for those ferries, and it’s the responsibility of the corporation to seek out the best value for money in this transaction. Determining whether the creation of a significant number of short-term, well-paying jobs is more important than the potential to overspend for this project, if the bidding was not opened up to a worldwide competition, is a job for government, not the B.C. Ferry Corporation. The B.C. Liberals, despite saying they will let B.C. Ferries make the final decision, have to make sure the corporation is absolutely clear on government’s viewpoint on that issue.

There would be dust, sand, clay and gravel, but no soil because it’s formed by the accumulation of molecules from the remains of plants and animals. Finally, the sun sets and although it’s warm because of greenhouse gases, we decide to build a fire so we can sit around and exchange stories. Where could we find fuel to burn? Wood, peat, dung, coal, oil and gas all store the sun’s energy as photosynthetic products that we burn to liberate fire. Before life, there was no fuel. Again, in anticipation we brought wood, kindling and paper and set them up for a fire. But fire requires oxygen, so nothing happens when we strike the match. The point of this exercise is to illustrate that the very foundations of our lives are made possible by the web of life that evolved on a once-sterile planet. Living organisms on land and in oceans, including us, create, cleanse and regenerate those vital elements. Who needs nature? We do. Without nature, we would not be here. How do we put an economic value on that?

LETTERS Columnist’s opinion another knee-jerk reaction Re: CRD losing ground in sewage debate (Simon Nattrass, July 19) Nattrass opines that flushing raw sewage, detergents, road runoff, antibiotics and other chemicals into the Strait of Juan de Fuca is a bad idea. This is the mindset that is driving us down the road to spending billions of unnecessary dollars. The poopinto-ocean-equals-bad attitude is a knee-jerk reaction not based on science. In our location it is much better for our planet and our local environment to send our nutrients into the ocean, rather than creating a land-based source of sludge that we then have to deal with. Maybe a fish farm would buy it?
road that will cost us all a lot of money, but will actually hurt the environment. Ed Christianson Colwood
As for detergents, pharmaceuticals and other chemicals, I agree we should do something about that, but the currently proposed treatment plan won’t do it. I’m not sure the technology exists to do that yet. And road runoff? That is the storm drain system and doesn’t even belong in this discussion. Please, please, please, can we get a firm scientific backing before we make the decision to spend a bunch of money now, then a bunch more every year to support this wrong-headed plan. Mr. Nattrass, I challenge you to look more deeply into this issue rather than go along with the knee-jerk reaction and further our journey down a
Sewage treatment issue can be tough to sort out Our sewage treatment issue is a thorny one, no doubt. I have struggled with coming to a definite view. Apparently the same can be said of Mr. Nattrass, who, in last week’s ‘opinion piece’ ventures no detectable opinion. I probed in vain for the sweet core of this jelly donut. He offered nothing but rhetorical dough. Tom Oak Victoria
Classic cars unfairly ticketed at Royal Oak
Classic car ticketing embarrassing
Many transgressions in Canada’s past
Classic car cruise nights at Royal Oak Shopping Center have been happening on Saturday nights for many years. A month or so ago car clubs received a letter from the lawyers of the shopping center telling the car clubs to stop publicizing the cruise nights. The car clubs complied with their wishes and didn’t attend. Many of stores realized they were missing out on business. After a couple of weeks, we were invited back to the mall for Saturday cruise nights again. Last Saturday night, we were given tickets for parking at the mall, even if we were there shopping, just because we had classic cars. Most car owners buy dinner at one of the many restaurants. Many owners do grocery shopping, pick up bread and meat, get gas and shop at the other stores there as well. So needless to say, myself and many other classic car owners will not be spending a dime at the Royal Oak Shopping Center from now on (sorry to the owners of stores that really appreciated our business). Dave and Carol LeGrand Saanich
I was disgusted to witness several classic and collector cars indiscriminately receive $30 parking tickets last Saturday evening, notwithstanding the fact that many cars had just parked there, and had receipts showing they had patronized businesses in the mall. Robbins Parking issued the tickets as authorized by Hansbraun Investments, manager of the mall. Regular cars (non-collector) were not ticketed. I was equally embarrassed to see several car owners from the U.S.A., who were attending the highly successful Deuce Days event, have to high tail it out of the parking lot before getting a ticket, but not before returning the goods they had purchased from mall businesses. I am the proud owner of a collector car, and have lived in the Royal Oak area for 34 years. I was a regular shopper at many mall businesses, spending several thousand dollars annually. The average age of the collector car mall patrons is about 60. We are peaceful. We patronize the mall and we attract business to the mall. Frank D’Argis Saanich
Re: Columnist’s portrayal of Canada was “disgusting’. (Letters, July 12). It is no surprise really that D. Gramlich sees Canada through rose-coloured glasses. Our education system has deliberately avoided teaching the truth about Canada’s history. This has been very convenient for those who want to develop the resources of the land and inhabit the land. I am 61 and have begun educating myself about what First Nations people. We cannot move into a new future without healing the rift between colonists and First Nations. The standard of living of many aboriginal people in Canada is as bad as any indigenous people in the world. I take no joy in Canada Day, Thanksgiving, Victoria Day or any celebration where we pat ourselves on the back for what we have done in 100 or 150 years. I am not proud of what we have done, as we have polluted, plundered and left much of a beautiful pristine land poisoned and uninhabitable. Dawn Heiden Saanich

Two witnesses came to the aid of the victim and called 911. The guard was taken to hospital with non lifethreatening injuries. Armed with a good description, police arrested the suspect at 3:30 a.m.
Police cruiser hits vehicle
One man was taken to hospital Tuesday morning after a police cruiser rear-ended his compact car on Bay Street. Both vehicles were traveling west on Bay Street when the compact car signalled for a left turn onto Cedar Hill Road. It was struck from behind by the police vehicle. The car driver was taken to hospital for precautions. His fouryear-old passenger was uninjured. The Independent Investigations Office has been notified as a precaution, Russell said, as has the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner.

victoria’s ultimate get out guide
promotes local music BY MARY ELLEN GREEN firstname.lastname@example.org
ome might think the library is a thing of the past — but “it’s more than a pile of old dusty books,” says circulation assistant Kaya Fraser. And Victorians should rejoice, because the Greater Victoria Public Library is an innovative one, with a mandate to find new ways to connect with the community and “inspire the joy of discovery through programs, collections and training opportunities,” according to the organization’s strategic plan. And the GVPL is doing just that when it launches a new collection dedicated solely to local music, July 29, at the three main district branches — Central, Nellie McClung and Juan de Fuca. The new collection was the idea of Cheryl Landry, music specialist and public services librarian, who pitched the concept almost three years ago. “It wasn’t until a year ago that the timing, money and logistics came together, so I put in a proposal,” she says. While there are many local music titles in the current collection, they weren’t easily searchable using the term “local.” “It’s always been lumped in with the respective genres,” says Landry. “It hasn’t been obvious, so we wanted to expand that, and decided to create a collection where local is the focus.” To begin, Landry sought out the help of the savvy staff at Ditch Records and CDs. “They gave us some great recommendations and we purchased what we could from them,” says Landry. She then put out a call to the Victoria Conservatory of Music, the department of music at UVic and the larger community using social media. “I didn’t need to go any further,” she says. “I spent the initial budget. We do have a certain amount of the CD budget earmarked to add to the collection each year, but the music has to meet a certain criteria. We had to start somewhere.” To start things off, GVPL has amassed more than 150 unique titles in the collection, often with multiple copies. The artists need to have a strong connection to Victoria, Vancouver Island or the Gulf Islands and the music had to be of professional quality, and commercially produced within the last five years.
Erin Cebula, Global BC
Say YES to BC

“It’s quite a wide range. We have the typical pop and rock, plus indie, folk, singer-songwriter, jazz, big band, choral. There’s even a violinist who’s been nominated for a Grammy,” says Landry. Landry herself studied music in university and thought the idea of a local music collection would be a great way to support the local music community while encouraging Victorians to listen to something new. “I think it’s important to support artists in general. Libraries’ roles are changing. We’re less curators of the past and more supporters of new ideas and creations. We want to create a record of musical life in the area, but also promote the artists and also inspire new collaborations — and hopefully allow the general public than might not frequent coffee houses or local music events to come across new music in a different way.” To kick off the collection, GVPL is hosting the Local MusicFest from 2-5 p.m., Saturday, July 27 in Centennial Square. The free event features live music by eight artists featured in the local music collection, including Sets in the West, Renata Young, Ethan Caleb, Alan Jossul, Balkan Babes, One Bright Morning, Ocean Noise and Kaya Fraser Band. Fraser, a roots-rock singer-songwriter, is backed by a three piece band that includes Carl Cavanagh on bass. Cavanagh works alongside Fraser and Landry as a librarian at the GVPL Central branch. “This is a very clear gesture of support for the local music community,” says Fraser. “It’s a way for people to discover things, because increasingly people want to try before they buy. Even though they’re not buying a CD when they take it out from the library, they may well go out and buy a CD or go to a show and as a musician the number one thing I want is to get into people’s ears.” “Some of the music was already in our collection, but it’s not easy to find. There’s no way to search for music that is specifically local and it’s a great idea to use local as a search term and be able to browse a separate collection. The concert is just the icing on the cake.” People in attendance will get the first crack at checking out items from the new collection, which will be available in the branches the following Monday. Bring your library card or have one made on the spot. gvpl.ca.

Musical soulmates reunite for summer tour BY TRAVIS PATERSON email@example.com
s promised, jazz singer Emily Braden has returned from the bustle of New York city, if only for a couple of shows. Braden reunites with Oliver Swain’s Big Machine tonight (July 26) at Upstairs Cabaret. The band also features fiddler Jaron Freeman-Fox and 17-year-old guitarist Quinn Bachand. It’s a homecoming for Braden, originally from Idaho, who lived here for seven years while doing her undergraduate and graduate studies in Spanish at the University of Victoria. During that time she came into her own as an artist and since relocated to pursue the jazz dream. “Living between both cities was getting to be a bit much but it feels like home in Victoria. It’s where I became myself as an artist. “Victoria is such a place for recharging, I’m looking forward to seeing all the friends here and touring some festivals. I love Canada and am looking forward to seeing different places there,” she said. Singing provides the bulk of Braden’s New York income but she also works with the Washington Heights CORNER Project, (cornerproject.org/connect-2/meet-our-par-
ticipants), a harm reduction initiative on the streets of New York City. Speaking Spanish is part of the gig and is paramount to her effectiveness, given the large Spanish-speaking population. “Music in New York is all about the hustle but it’s also such a tough thing in NYC so I’m lucky I’m so passionate about the CORNER Project,” she said. The 2012 New York City Best of the Best jazz vocalist winner was on Oliver Swain’s 2010 album In a Big Machine, so expect a lot of material from that, she said. It’s going to be a work in progress as she only arrived a week ago. Braden’s jazz vocals will be reintegrated as a backup singer to Swain, adding a gospel element to the songs. “(Swain) and I are musical soulmates. I’m more of a jazz head and he’s into more of a roots and bluegrass scene, but he helped me write my first tune in his atrium. We both like to make music and branch out, it’s going to be fun to figure out how to sing with him (again).” The group kicked off its upcoming tour in Duncan on Thursday and will hit cities throughout B.C. and Alberta well into August. Braden will return for The Victoria Django Festival on Aug. 9.

The Little Prince monday’s movies
ust as one’s DNA can reveal family traits, astrology does likewise. An astrological peek reveals the new prince George is a Cancer with Mercury, Mars and Jupiter in Cancer. If this baby had been born 36 minutes later, he would be a Leo - the sign of royalty. But he has plenty of royal company in GeorGia Cancer. NicoLs The baby’s father, Prince William, has Sun and Moon in Cancer; his mother Kate has her Moon in Cancer, and his grandmother Princess Diana was a Cancer. Cancer signs are nurturing. Meanwhile, Kate is a Capricorn and the baby has Moon in Capricorn. And his great grandmother Queen Elizabeth is Capricorn Rising. Lots of similarities. Capricorn is a perfectionist sign that rules the government. Because of his birth so close to Leo, he shares qualities of both Leo and Cancer. And indeed, Queen Elizabeth has Moon in Leo, and Prince Charles is Leo Rising. In turn, Charles is a Scorpio and the baby is Scorpio Rising. These two - the new prince and his grandfather will click amazingly. Watch for future photos. There is also a strong Sagittarius influence coming from his grandmother Diana, who was Sagittarius Rising. This gives him a freedom-seeking quality that adores travel and will love to be outside enjoying sports and physical activities. First and foremost, he will strive to become a better person in this lifetime. He’ll be attracted to self-help books, courses and activities for self-improvement. He will seek principles to govern his life so he can feel confident that by adhering to these principles, he can live fearlessly. He will also love to travel. But he will not seek out the popularity of his uncle Harry. He will have fewer friends, but steadfast, lifelong buddies. He is strong, wilful, and yet, an imaginative dreamer who thinks in pictures. There is much passion in his chart. (Oh yes, we have a little stud muffin in the making.) He’ll have heightened sexual energy, a debonair demeanour plus a love of mystery and intrigue. He will be secretive. In fact, his chart shows he will fall heir to secret information. One royal tradition that will happily be carried on - from generations before him - is his love of animals and outdoor sports. This young prince is indeed a delightful addition to the royal family.

SAANICH NEWS - Friday, July 26, 2013
ED is a fictitious (one hopes) CIA acronym for “retired, extremely dangerous” and was first used as the title of a droll and violent black comedy three years ago, wherein two retired CIA buddies were the subjects of a mysterious CIA assassination plot. Happily, Frank (Bruce Willis) and Marvin (John Malkovich) were able to show the youngsters a thing or three about lethal “wetwork,” and went on to not only save themselves but also save the day as they short-circuited a dire conspiracy. The movie was a hit and Frank and Marvin are back in RED 2, and reunited with MI6 counterpart Victoria (Helen Mirren, who claims she based her purse-lipped and murderous character on Martha Stewart) and Frank’s girlfriend, Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker), who is eager to join in on all the action even though Frank just wants to play house with his civilian cutie. Adding to the fun, Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and David Thewlis are scenery-chewing ride-alongs. Once again, these crusty, squabbling characters find themselves evading a large contingent of agents trying to blow them up or mow them down. It’s all part of a baroque, globetrotting plot that centres on a Cold War-era nuclear bomb that has been hiding somewhere in Moscow for 30 years and is now coveted by various factions. The storyline is both generic and messy, and much of the violence seems unnecessary. In truth this would just be a cable flick were it not for all the great performers, whose alchemical wit and panache elevate brutal banality into passable entertainment. Rating: ★★½ RED 2 continues at the Empire 6, SilverCity, Empire Uni 4, and Westshore.
True believers W
ith our very own terrorist bomb scare so recently in the news, it’s useful to remember that extremist anti-war groups in the 1970s such as The Weather Underground brought a shocking level of homegrown violence to American soil. That murderous legacy is examined in The Company You Keep, a thoughtful drama directed by and starring Robert Redford. Jim Grant (Redford) is a decent lawyer and family man who’s been a pillar of his community for 30 years. But the unexpected arrest of terrorist fugitive Sharon Solarz (Susan Sarandon), wanted for the long-ago murder of a bank guard, sends a keen young reporter named Ben Shepard (Shia LaBeouf) sniffing around Grant. And Grant, whose real name is Nick Sloan, is wanted on that same warrant. So he goes on the lam in the middle of the night, just steps ahead of a pugnacious FBI agent (Terrence Howard) determined to take him down. What follows is a low-key thriller as much as a drama, one that
examines the morality of violent protest as well as the scars borne by idealists who convinced themselves that the use of lethal force was appropriate when their country was engaged in an unjust war (and was beating and even killing its own student protestors). As Grant/Sloan furtively reconnects with several Weather alumni in search of an ex-lover of the time (Julie Christie) who may hold the key to his dilemma, he is pursued by Shepard as well as the FBI. And the film suggests that both an FBI agent ruthlessly wielding state power and an ambitious reporter with no regard for the collateral damage his front-page stories inflict on the innocent, are carrying their own payload of moral taint. A decent albeit occasionally talky film, Company should get an award for its amazing cast, which includes Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper, Stanley Tucci, and Brendan Gleeson. Although it lacks the savvy political edge of All The President’s Men, this is part of cinema’s vanishing breed: a film for adults. Rating: ★★★ The Company You Keep plays July 26-27 at UVic’s Cinecenta.

Mark Brett/Black Press
Victoria United reserves defender Ivica Bratanovic, right, kicks the feet out from under James Fraser of Penticton Pinnacles during the second half of the Pacific Coast Soccer League U-21 men’s reserve match Sunday in Penticton. Bratanovic was red carded, part of a frustrated United squad that lost 8-0 to the Pinnacles.

IN BRIEF Adanacs lead 2-0 over Shamrocks The Victoria Jr. Shamrocks have no room for error as they attempt to solve the Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs in Game 3 of the B.C.

Teddy Jenner knew he needed to make a better impression to get onto Sportsnet Drafted. After four years of failed attempts, Jenner has cracked the reality show’s final 24 and will attend a four day bootcamp in Toronto beginning Aug. 11. Audtitions took place in Vancouver during a weekend in May, and Jenner was in the area with the Juan de Fuca pee wee A2 boys lacrosse team, which he coached. Auditions took place on a Saturday, but Jenner’s first audition didn’t sit well, so he went back on Sunday. “They were surprised, but I didn’t need any prep time. I talked about what the Canucks need to do to succeed, which is not my team. I had to show them I’m more than just a one-trick pony.” His trick, if you can
Victoria United U-21 men’s squad ended its season with a disappointing 8-0 drubbing by the Penticton Pinnacles on Sunday. Both of United’s premier and U-21 squads finished outside of the playoffs in the Pacific Coast Soccer League reserves division. “It’s a bit of a disappointment not playing at RAP for the first time in 20 years but we had both teams practising on the field at the same time at Braefoot Park and had a great transition year there,” said Bill Anderson of United’s board of directors. United carried around 45 players on its two teams this year despite being bumped from RAP by baseball’s Victoria HarbourCats and the PDL Victoria Highlanders. The Highlanders men are off to California for the PDL Western Conference Championship semifinals against the Ventura County Fusion. Meanwhile the powerhouse Peninsula Co-op Highlanders women’s team has drawn the Kamloops Heat for Saturday. It’s the first match in the Pacific Coast Soccer League’s Dave Fryatt Challenge Cup playoffs in Coquitlam. A win puts the Co-op Highlanders into Sunday’s final. email@example.com

CFAX reporter and WLA play-by-play announcer Teddy Jenner is hoping to win Drafted and earn a year-long contract with Sportsnet. call it that, is lacrosse. But anyone who knows the former Victoria Shamrocks player (and Mann Cup winner) knows he is passionate about sports, and isn’t confined to box lacrosse. It just so happens, however, that he’s become the Bob McKenzie of box lacrosse in Canada. He hosts a weekly radio show Off the Crosse Bar, which features the games’ top athletes, coaches and general
managers. The lacrosse community isn’t big, but it’s tight, and he’s constantly under the microscope. Now he’s out to prove that he can handle the same pressure as a Sportsnet sportscaster. When he got the call in June it came from last year’s winner, Matt Drapel, and it didn’t come easy. “He called me ‘fivetime Teddy,’ and actually had me convinced
I wasn’t on the show, but was just toying with me because I want it so bad.” Jenner is second in online voting, which would give him immunity into the final six. For a month he’ll live in Toronto and compete against 24 other contestants including Victoria’s Justin Kelly, who was featured in the News recently. Visit Teddy Jenner’s Drafted Facebook site to vote for him.

Relationship-building through cultural exchange Japanese students visit Saanich to learn and explore
Fifteen-yearold Japanese exchange students Yui Matsumiya and Reina Yanagisawa are flanked by their homestay mom Alicia Brown, left, and Sarah Carrie, program co-ordinator for the Victoria division of Muskoka Language International.

While most teenagers are probably not too interested in spending part of their overseas summer vacation in a classroom, 14 students from Kitakamakura Girls’ high school in Japan have no problem with it. The Japanese girls, on an exchange in Saanich this week through Muskoka Language International, are getting an authentic B.C. experience as ESL students at Pacific Christian Secondary and as tourists. “So far they’ve been having a good time in classroom studies. They’ve learned a little bit about the provinces and territories, and we’ve had a lot of activities to try and get them communicating details about themselves in English: favourite foods, pets, family members,” said Sarah Carrie, program co-ordinator for the Victoria division of MLI. “Here (in Canada) is when they work on their spoken language. They can practise writing in English at home, but when they’re here it’s important they start practising how they say the words.” But the exchange doesn’t see the girls stuck in a classroom the entire time. Hikes through Goldstream Provincial Park and Christmas Hill, and visits to the Royal B.C.

Museum, The Butchart Gardens, Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary and Victoria Butterfly Gardens are also part of their weeklong experience in Greater Victoria. MLI sends upwards of 450 Japanese students to Saanich on an annual basis, allowing both local and foreign teenagers the chance to get up close and personal with a drastically different culture. “I think it’s really important for them to have the experience of exchange,” Carrie said. “For the Japanese students, this gives them the cultural experience and it also shows them the diversity of our city – the history, the natural history, the First Nations history.”
Alicia Brown, a home stay parent currently hosting two Kitakamakura students, says the cultural differences and language barriers are easy to overcome when a young traveller comes in to your home. “It’s really quite interesting because I wasn’t sure at first how we were going to manage, but they’re so polite. I have two children and they are so excited every time we have students,” Brown says. “They’re just so much joy to the kids. They have a lot of fun and they play with the children. That cultural interaction is so important.” Brown says she provides an authentic experience to the students by treating them as her own children, knowing full
well they may be scared travelling without their parents and staying with strangers. “They’re well taken care of here, like my children, and they’re very loved when they come to my home,” she said. “I love to take them downtown and show them what Victoria’s all about. And they’re amazed. They feel so blessed being part of it – you can see it in their eyes how they get so excited.” Aya Okada, a Grade 10 student, said her first impressions of Canada were how relaxed people are and how beautiful our natural environment is. “Canada is very big,” the 15-year-old said. She and her classmates will spend the rest of the week in Victoria, then travel to Vancouver on Monday. Students from Kitakamakura have been coming to Victoria for the past eight years, thanks to an ever-growing relationship between Carrie and Ms. Oda, a Grade 10 teacher from the Japanese school. Carrie says she’s continually impressed by how open the Japanese students are to the experience. “The international program does bring a lot to our local community and economy, in terms of the learning, cultural exchange and the downtown and Saanich economies,” she said. “It’s an equal sharing experience on both sides. It’s not just about ‘this is what we do here.’ The students love to learn about other cultures because it can only make it better for awareness.” email@example.com
