Good Samaritan stabbed while trying to break up fight

polICe aRReSt one suspect, still searching for another. By Tamara CunningHam ThE NEwS BULLETiN

A 21-year-old Good Samaritan is recovering at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital after being stabbed twice in an early

morning brawl Saturday. The Nanaimo RCMP say the 21-year-old was stabbed in the back and abdomen after coming to the rescue of a 27-yearold man being beaten by two young adult males Saturday. The 27-year-old had refused to hand over more than one cigarette, prompting the attack, police say. Both victims were hospitalized with stab wounds.

The 27-year-old was recently released. Police say they have arrested one male, a 21-yearold Nanaimo man found near where the attack happened at Albert Street and Victoria Crescent. They continue to search for a second 21-yearold suspect, but say they do not believe he is a danger to the public. The stabbings were report-

edly the result of what appears to be an “instigated incident” over cigarettes, said Const. Kate Mooney with the Nanaimo RCMP. The suspect is not likely “going around ... looking for more trouble.” Police say the 27-year-old victime was mouthy toward his attackers and their reaction was to fight him. A witness to the fight flagged

down a Nanaimo RCMP constable who was patrolling the area around 3:30 a.m. The wounded Good Samaritan had to undergo surgery and will remain in the hospital for another week, according to police. They commend his actions but say it’s never a good idea for people to get involved in a brawl. u See ‘POLICE’ /4

Police bag drugs, suspect A search of a home by Nanaimo Mounties bagged drugs, cash and two suspects last week. Police seized illicit street drugs, plus $2,000 in cash in a home in the 600 block of Pine Street. Investigators arrested a 40-yearold man who tried to flee the premises. A 23-year-old woman also at the home when police arrived was taken into custody, but was later released without charges.

Communication plan aids information flow I goal to also improve transparency, promote discussion opportunites. By GreG Sakaki The News BulleTiN

A lot of people want to get through to the City of Nanaimo these days, and now there’s a plan in place so that can happen. Last Monday, council adopted the City of Nanaimo Communication Plan. The document was presented by Philip Cooper, the city’s communications manager. The plan was prepared last November and December and a draft was publicly presented in March. “It’s a work in progress but I think it has a lot of benefit to it and we’re hoping that the public and the taxpayers will support the concept and participate in it,” said Mayor John Ruttan. Cooper said the plan fulfils three needs: it guides the flow of information, offers transparency, and promotes communication over a diversity of channels. “It’s a document designed to demonstrate what we’re doing, how we’re doing it and create an opportunity for conversations and

dialogue to occur,” Cooper told council. The plan is split into four sections: external communications, internal communications, public participation and relationship building. Each of those goals is accompanied by more specific action items, 60 in all. Seven community members made presentations on the communications plan at last Monday’s meeting. “It’s a document and a document translated into practice is a different deal. That’s the important issue,” said Jeff Solomon. “Anybody can produce a document. Acting on that document and making it work, is the work.” Cooper said part of the plan is to gauge the effectiveness of the city’s communications. “It’s extremely important to measure it because so much of what we hear is sometimes on the negative side and there’s a ton of positive stuff,” he said. Ruttan said he is hopeful that the communication plan will be beneficial both to the city and to residents. “Particularly those that may feel they’re most affected or want to be heard, this is the perfect opportunity,” he said. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Premier Christy Clark is pitching B.C.’s carbon tax to her fellow premiers, bolstered by a study that shows it is reducing fossil fuel use compared to other provinces. As premiers gathered last week in Niagaraon-the-Lake, Ont., for a Council of the Federation meeting, B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak said B.C. needs other provinces and U.S. states to get on board before moving further on carbon pricing. Introduced in 2008, B.C.’s carbon tax now adds about seven cents to the cost of a litre of gasoline, with comparable taxes on coal, fuel oil, propane and other fuels. Legislation requires that carbon tax revenue be offset by reductions in business and personal income tax, so it encourages fuel efficiency. The B.C. Liberal Party campaigned in the May election to freeze the rate for five years. Polak said results so far show it is reducing per-capita fuel consumption without depressing the overall economy, but the province has gone as far as it can on its own. The study by University of Ottawa law professor Stewart Elgie found that per-capita use of fossil fuels has declined, while it has increased in the rest of Canada. “B.C.’s carbon tax shift is only four years old, so it is too early to draw firm conclusions, but its greenhouse gas reductions are trending in the same direction as those seen in European countries with more than 15 years of data,” the study says. “Indeed B.C.’s reductions to date appear to be even greater, consistent with the fact that its carbon tax rate is now higher and more comprehensive than most European countries.” NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert agreed that the carbon tax is working, but said the five-year freeze indicates the government has lost its leadership position. The NDP is calling for the tax to be extended to emissions from industrial processing such as cement making, which is currently subject to tax only on natural gas or other fuel used. Polak said some industries are already at a disadvantage because B.C. is going it alone. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Frustration mounts over delays to restart rail service By Neil horNer Black Press

Discussion amongst Regional District of Nanaimo board members shows growing frustration for definitive action on the Island rail corridor. Speaking at last week’s regular board meeting, Qualicum Beach director Dave Willie highlighted his municipality’s letter to RDN CAO Paul Thorkelson that called for discussions about the future use of the corridor and to examine alternatives, other than rail, for both the corridor and the $15-million dedicated to it from the provincial and federal governments. “There are serious concerns being expressed,” Willie said. “The corridor is a tremendous asset to the Island and we need all options on the table for discussion. I have a grave concern that the board is focused on one option only.” Thorkelson stressed the district looks at the corridor as a venue for many types of transportation. “I don’t think they are mutually exclusive,” he said. “Discussion of rail can continue and we can talk about alternatives for pedestrians and other transportation options.” Willie received strong support from his colleagues around the table. “The time is appropriate and the temperature is right for us to make some significant inquiries about the finish line,” said Nanaimo director Bill Bestwick. Bowser director Bill Veenhof agreed. “Perhaps we should look at a motion to terminate our agreement with the fund,” he said. Nanaimo director Jim Kipp urged caution however. “We are in a quagmire but we have an August deadline now,” he said. “Can we sit on everything until then and then make a decision as soon as possible?” Despite the discussion, the board only agreed to receive the letter from Qualicum and took no further action. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo company helps kids get to class

FUNDRAISING WILL buy boats for families in Philippines. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

A Nanaimo-based company that creates online presentations for yachts, business jets and luxury hotels has thrown its marketing savvy behind a foundation that raises money to build boats to help children in the Philippines get to school. Vincent Finetti, chief executive officer of Prestige Vision, was on the final leg of a flight home in December, idly checking messages and surfing the net on his iPad, when he happened upon a video depicting children in the Philippines who faced an almost unbelievable daily challenge just to get to school and home again. The video was shot in the mangrove village of Layag Layag, located on one of the more than 7,000 islands that make up the Philippines. Homes, families, life in general on many of the islands is surrounded by water and mangroves children have to wade and swim through, for as much as two hours each way, just to get to their schools. By the time they get to classes their books and school supplies are often soaked and water damaged. Prestige Vision has offices in Manila and Finetti saw an opportunity to make a positive impact for impoverished children in a country in which the company operates. “I started Prestige Vision a few years ago and it’s all about boats and yachts,” Finetti said. “We have a team that operates all around the world and we help yachting and boating companies sell their boats.” The YouTube video Finetti happened upon was posted by the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation, which is working with 13 communities across the Philippines to provide yellow school boats to get the kids to classes. The foundation now also gives support with school supplies, dental and medical missions, scholarships and

people have to swim, wade or travel by boat. Yellow Boat of Hope boats are painted, appropriately, school bus yellow and come in various sizes, from small outrigger canoes that can carry a couple of children, to larger boats that carry up to 25 children. Every boat benefits an entire community. After the children are taken to school their parents use the boats for fishing or working in seaweed farms near the villages until the children have to be picked up from their classes. “It was very nice to see the good things that can be done with just $200,” Finetti said. “Sometimes we don’t realize what we can get for $200, but they can get a boat to use for six to eight years every day for school and every day for work and that’s huge.” The boats are also built in the villages, which provides spinoff economic benefits for the whole community. About 200 boats have been purchased for villages so far and Prestige Vision and its clients have helped sponsor 22 of those. “I know many more will come,” Finetti said. “I know that for so many years all those kids and parents will use those boats. It makes us all really happy. We’re really proud of this.” To raise cash so far, Finetti started what he calls the $1 campaign in which he mails a letter with one U.S. dollar stapled to it to clients around the world detailing his experiences in the Philippines and the benefits the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation provides to the people living in the mangrove villages. Finetti’s letter campaign has generated interest and cash, but he wants to share this opportunity with Nanaimo’s boating community to drum up interest in sponsoring more yellow boats. “You put out the money and you hope that more will come back,” Finetti said. “It’s like fishing with a lure.” To learn more about the Yellow Boat of Hope Foundation, please visit www.yellowboat. org. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Snowbirds take to skies above Nanaimo harbour for show

Canada’s famous aerial demonstration team will perform over Nanaimo Harbour to entertain the crowds and raise awareness sky high for the CHILD Foundation. The RCAF Snowbirds 431 Air Demonstration Squadron, known the world over for its unique form of precision formation flying, will fill the skies over Nanaimo Harbour Wednesday (July 31) at 6 p.m. with the roar of jet engines and music accompanying the show. The last time the demonstration team performed here was in 2009. Each year the Snowbirds fly under a theme, which for the 2013 season is The Pursuit of Excellence. For 2013 the team is also celebrating the 70th anniversary of its formation as a bomber squadron plus their 50th anniversary of flying the Canadian designed and built Canadair CT-114 Tutor jet aircraft, which has proven its longevity and durability in

its trainer and demonstration roles. People can expect to see the Snowbirds’ world class performance with a few changes, said Capt. Thomas Edelson, team spokesman. “Each year we change the order of the manoeuvres and the formations,” Edelson said. “We add some manoeuvres and formations and some get dropped as well, but it’s a 35-minute show – timed to music – in duration. “It’s still nine planes in the air and it’s still what people come to expect from the Snowbirds.” Team members perform with the squadron for two years with about half the team rotating through at a time, ensuring a continual blend of seasoned pilots training new team members. The squadron has 11 aircraft. Nine are flown in shows with two spares kept in reserve. During the 35-minute performance, pilots and aircraft will pull G-force loads ranging from minus-two to plus-six. At six Gs, or six times normal Earth gravity, a man who weighs 80 kilograms will feel as if he weighs 480 kg. In other words, if the average person’s arm weighs nine kg, at six Gs it will weigh 54

Safety zone in effect during show The Nanaimo Port Authority will start clearing a safety zone in the harbour at 5 p.m., with a full closure to all shipping and aircraft in the harbour in effect by 5:30 p.m. All craft must have cleared the safety zone before the show can start. The harbour will be re-opened

to traffic at 6:50 p.m. pending confirmation that all aircraft have cleared the area. The safety area perimeter will be marked with white buoys at its corners and yellow buoys along its sides. harbour Patrol vessels will be positioned outside the safety area.

kg. Snowbird pilots endure those physical stresses, while working their aircraft’s controls and maintaining mental concentration, all without the benefits of G-suits, normally worn by jet fighter pilots, that help maintain blood flow to the lungs and brain to prevent pilots from blacking out under high-G manoeuvres. Snowbird pilots wear normal flight suits. Edelson, although not a pilot himself, has flown in the backseat for several shows, describes what appears to be an aerial ballet to observers on the ground as a fight in the cockpit. “It’s quite exhausting, that’s for sure,” Edelson said. “It’s a very intensive 35 minutes with a lot of focus. A lot of people don’t know actually how physical it is when you’re in a very confined little space. It’s very warm and

you’re fighting the G forces a lot, so it’s not a walk in the park.” Edelson, speaking from Fort Saint John where the team had just arrived for a performance Thursday, said audiences are rarely aware of the training, preparation for the shows or even the logistics of simply moving 11 aircraft and 24 air and ground crew around Canada and the U.S. The Snowbirds also have one support truck that follows the squadron, otherwise the team has to travel light. “It’s essentially like going camping in a [Mazda] Miata all summer,” Edelson said. The Snowbirds will fly for Nanaimo Wednesday (July 31) at 6 p.m., but they will arrive at Nanaimo Airport on a special mission today (July 30) where they’ll fly an aerial demonstration before meeting with children suffering

from intestinal and liver disorders, their caregivers and CHILD Foundation representatives for a private barbecue at the Nanaimo Flying Club. The team will base their aircraft at Nanaimo Airport overnight prior to performing Wednesday. The Snowbirds started promoting for the CHILD Foundation in 2002. The foundation raises money to find a cure for children suffering from inflammatory bowel disease. “Each year we participate with one of our primary charities and do a show for the public, but there are aspects of that show where it’s a private social function for some of the kids and families who are working through life with various intestinal and liver problems,” Edelson said. “We just basically bring visibility to their organization.” The team is encouraging the public to come to the waterfront, watch the show and buy Snowbirds T-shirts and WestJet raffle tickets, proceeds from which support the CHILD Foundation.

TOP: One of the performers with Cirque Jeunesse En Equilibre gets a little help from young audience members to get on his feet during the circus troupe’s performance in Diana Krall Plaza Friday. ABOVE: Jerry Hong, right, throws up his hands in apparent defeat and disgust at the sight of Celena Olson, who launches a devastating frontal assault on her melon, splattering nearby contestants and cameras, during the adult category of the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association’s watermelon eating contest.

he tubs got tossed around this year, but tubbers showed toughness and finished the Great International World Championship Bathtub Race. Nanaimo’s Brandon Leigh won this year’s event, as he and his super-modified tub made it to Departure Bay beach in one hour, 30 minutes, 42 seconds. Leigh is a second-generation tubber and first-time champion. “I rode the waves, I was on top of them, I wasn’t slugging it out like everybody else, and it really worked to my advantage,” said Leigh. He had a huge lead for the second half of the race and he knew it, so he just needed to maintain focus. He ended up finishing more than 15 minutes ahead of the rest of the field. “It’s more of an endurance race than a speed race,” Leigh said. “So you’ve got to keep your wits about you the whole time because you can catch an edge and you can submarine and it’s all over in seconds.” Runner-up this year was Shawn Lamoureux. The former champ said conditions were rough this year, with

He said the seas were rough for the duration of the race. “It seemed to never let up anywhere, even coming in here [to Departure Bay],” he said. The tubbers had been advised of the forecast in their morning meeting, said Katharine Lamoureux, first lady to finish the race. “They told us to expect some serious wind and waves,” she said. “I was prepared for it but it was still intense no matter how much you know what it’s going to be like out there.” There were some close calls, said the three-time finisher and first-time winner. “I think my escort boat thought I was going down at least 10 times,” Katharine Lamoureux said. “I wasn’t so sure a few times, too.” Brad Davis won the stock class and was third overall and Kevin Saunders won the modified division. Darren Logan won Oldest Tubber to Finish and also the Last Place Survivor award. Mike McKillican won the Silver Plunger Award as first tubber to sink. Madison Crawford won for Best Sportsmanship. Jaime Garcia won Heaviest Tubber to Finish and Trevor Short was Youngest Tubber to Finish.

Top 10 finishers (at the beach): Brandon leigh (SM) – 1:30:24 shawn lamoureux (SM) – 1:47:04 Brad Davis (S) – 1:50:10 Cooper Rey (S) – 1:54:37 Dan Faux (S) – 1:56:58 Kailen elander (S) – 1:59:22 Rob saywell (S) – 2:01:01 Jaime Garcia (SM) – 2:12:05 Nathan Barlow (SM) – 2:12:10 Clint heine (SM) – 2:14:59

four- and five-foot waves heading toward the Winchelsea Islands. “I try not to hit the big waves head on, but sometimes when you launch over 400-500 of them, you’re going to hit a couple of them head on,” he said. “I definitely got my bell rung a couple times.” The defending champ, Clint Heine, was side by side with Leigh at around Neck Point, but took a spill there. “My hand came off on a wave and [the tub] got too high in the front, came down and got water in the back and got sloshed by another wave and it killed the motor,” Heine said. He was dumped into the drink, and needed his escort boat to help him get his tub back afloat.

Uphill battle for referendum

People in B.C. buy, sell, grow and consume marijuana mostly without fear of serious consequences from the law. Elections B.C. has given approval in principle to Dana Larsen’s initiative petition to amend the Police Act. More specifically, Larsen wants to decriminalize marijuana possession – a reminder that pot remains illegal. Any move to shake up drugs laws in this country is largely seen as a good thing. But pot smokers shouldn’t have a victory toke yet – it’s not clear this initiative will even get off the ground, and, if it does, will the province give it the time of day? Similar to the ultimately successful drive to oust the HST, Larsen and his supporters need to collect signatures of at least 10 per cent of elected voters in each of the 85 ridings. And if they do manage that, then it will be forwarded to a committee which will either send a draft bill to the Legislature for debate or to the Chief Electoral Officer to conduct a referendum. The gross mishandling of the HST by the Liberals made it easy to whip up voter anger. Many people in B.C. may support laxer laws around possessing marijuana, but the issue is unlikely to inflame the same passions as a government perceived as dishonest and shifting tax burdens from business to citizens. The drive for a possible marijuana referendum could help to get voting-adverse young adults more engaged in the political life of B.C. If a change to marijuana possession law were to succeed anywhere in Canada, it should be B.C. But even if Larsen and his allies win, the victory will be non-binding and symbolic – the B.C. Liberals don’t have to support the vote. B.C. may have a permissive pot culture, but this isn’t the U.S., where, for better or worse, voter propositions are binding. And unlike Canadian provinces, states like Washington and Colorado will defy their federal government based on the will of the people.

hours, we become hungry. But before there was life on Earth there was no food for animals like us because everything we eat was once alive. We consume the carcasses of animals and plants and absorb their molecules to form every part of our bodies. We also anticipated that and brought food. In fact, I expected to stay a while and brought seeds to grow greens. But where could I plant them? 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. 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. 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 – air, water, photosynthesis, soil and food – are made possible by the web of life that evolved on a once-sterile planet. Without nature, we would not be here. How do we put an economic value on that? www.davidsuzuki.org.

Either gender can lead, innovate To the Editor,

Re: Post-secondary is unbalanced, Letters, July 11. When Mr. Southward expressed disappointment at a celebration of women outnumbering men in universities, it’s quite apparent that he sees the high female rate as posing a threat to men’s status as “leaders and innovators of the future” when he suggests we “balance the deficit.” In light of the high number of university students/grads deep in tuition-induced debt without a subsequently relevant job to follow, he worries more about the male’s reputation in this phantom brain drain. Trade skills are equally as vital and honourable a position as a universityeducated job. As for the “phantom oncoming trade shortage,” I hear, see and read more evidence of the contrary. Plumbers, construction workers, electricians, welders, etc. are not “short-term pros-

pects of resource exploitation.” Perhaps men “have always been … the leaders and innovators,” but doesn’t insisting that they hold this title well into the future smack of sexist values right there? Have women not made strides as leaders and innovators in a man’s world? Haven’t their opportunities been limited because of their gender? (Not for a lack of volunteers.) Don’t they deserve a chance at it, even though the majority of them get paid less to do the same job, and just as efficiently as men? (Think of the savings that governments and corporations would gain.) I am not a big women’s lib advocate, but let’s keep the ego out of this and keep the population ratio genderless, and let every man and woman decide for themselves what direction they want to take in life.

After years of continual tax increase – and wasteful spending by the city bureaucracy and varied councils – the taxpayers of Nanaimo are looking for improvements, and with the new change in hierarchy, promises of little change. Each city manager successor gets the job by promotion from within. For years, council and bureaucrats have had free run of taxpayer dollars and have made many inane choices. Not to even mention the Colliery Dams, the lack of concern when the Port Authority was prepared to give away the Boat Basin for 30 years, and the small matter of a liquor bureaucrat’s decision to crack down on beer league hockey tournaments. Other communities have estab-

Consolidation of schools won’t benefit all students To the Editor,

Women outnumbering men at post-secondary institutions shouldn’t be viewed as any kind of threat, argues letter writer.

Core review might be a good idea after all lished core reviews with dramatic improvement to the taxpayer – a very large reduction in duplication of city staff and no tax increases. When a motion was made to order a core review for Nanaimo, this current council summarily dismissed the motion. Our employees owe the taxpayer more consideration.

School district priorities seem to be misplaced To the Editor,

Re: Due process needed in bullying cases, Letters, July 16. The school district spent valuable time and resources concluding that

“While there had been incidents of conflict between children this was not a situation where bullying took place.” Says who? Adults? Cops? Bullying has taken place and will continue to take place in every public school. Perhaps this parent was just trying to point out a flaw in the system and felt that the only place to have these concerns heard on neutral ground was via the newspaper. If the energy spent conducting this bullying investigation was focused on giving the kids more opportunities in academic and artistic areas this would go a long way in preventing incidents of conflict between children.

Re: Opposition mounts to coming closures of Cedar schools, July 18th Jamie Brennan says consolidating secondary students will allow students access to better support services, more extra-curricular opportunities and increased course selections. My daughter was consolidated in John Barsby School in 1998. Her brothers attended Cedar Community Secondary School from 2000-10. My sons had access to better support services, more extra-curricular opportunities and increased course selections than their sister ever did. Getting her into Barsby for basketball practice and games was a nightmare. On the other hand when her brothers were involved in extra-curricular opportunities at Cedar, if my husband and I were unavailable to pick them up they walked home with no serious consequences. As to support services, my learning disabled son had tremendous support at Cedar which did not happen at Barsby for my daughter’s peers who were learning disabled. Course selections were similar for both schools and my boys got better support for the more difficult courses they chose to take like Calculus 12. My daughter was a bright but quiet student who received not a single bursary or scholarship from the district although she qualified for scholarships at university. Her brothers both received district scholarships, some of which came from local businesses in Cedar which were acquired by school staff visiting local businesses and convincing them to support our grads. I have no children in the school district now but I’m still passionate about the best education for our children. Many parents moved to Cedar in the last decade because there was a high school for their children. Please don’t destroy our community and our children’s future so the school board can “move forward.”

Nanaimo News Bulletin Tuesday, July 30, 2013

www.nanaimobulletin.com

An open letter to all Canadians Bell Canada is taking the unusual step of writing to all Canadians today. As the nation’s longest-serving telecommunications company, established shortly after Confederation in 1880, we would like to ensure Canadians clearly understand a critical situation impacting their world-leading wireless industry. Verizon Communications, a $120-billion US telecommunications giant with 100 million wireless customers, is considering entering the Canadian market. A company of this scale certainly doesn’t need handouts from Canadians or special regulatory advantages over Canadian companies. But that is exactly what they get in the new federal wireless regulations. Bell welcomes any competitor, but they should compete on a level playing field. Fair competition is something Canadians demand and something Bell expects too after 133 years of investment in delivering world-class communications services to Canadians.

Unintended advantages for American giants: How we got here The federal government has recently taken an activist role in regulating Canada’s wireless industry. That includes giving various benefits to small startup wireless competitors. With Ottawa’s help, the new companies have become part of the vigorously competitive Canadian wireless marketplace. But the government inadvertently left holes in the wireless rules that would give big US corporations the same extraordinary advantages as the small startups. And all Canadians are on the hook to pay. Verizon has said it’s looking at taking advantage of this unique opportunity. We do not believe a US company 4x the size of Canada’s entire wireless industry combined requires special help from Canada. It’s profoundly unfair to all Canadians, and Ottawa needs to close the loopholes.

3 loopholes in the rules Under federal regulations originally designed for startup competitors, Verizon would actually get these benefits… 1. Verizon would be able to buy twice as much of Canada’s airwaves as Canadian companies like Bell can in an upcoming auction of wireless spectrum – the airwaves that carry your calls and data. These airwaves are a public resource, and access to them is critical to providing you with world-leading wireless services. When Ottawa auctions off Canada’s airwaves for use by telecommunications companies, it gets significant revenues. These are public funds. It is inappropriate for our own government to essentially reserve a public resource for a company like Verizon to the detriment of Canadian companies. In doing so, the government will also reduce federal auction revenue significantly – by potentially hundreds of millions of dollars. A loophole that gives US companies access to twice as much of our airwaves and at a lower cost is an unfair advantage, paid for by Canadians. 2. They get to piggyback on the networks of Canadian carriers wherever they don’t want to invest and build their own. Under the rules, Verizon would have the right to offer wireless service using the advanced networks funded by Canadian companies and built by Canadian workers. Industry experts say a Verizon wouldn’t need to build its own network throughout Canada, invest in Canada’s rural communities, or support Canadian jobs like Canadian wireless companies do. Instead, they would concentrate on a few big urban centres, forcing Canadian carriers to do the same while potentially cutting jobs and slashing costs in order to compete. 3. Verizon can acquire smaller Canadian competitors – but Bell and other Canadian wireless companies can’t even try. American players like Verizon can buy up new Canadian wireless companies like Wind Mobile and Mobilicity at cut-rate prices – including their existing spectrum holdings previously subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. Yet Canadian carriers like Bell are restricted from competing to acquire these Canadian startups, even if the new companies want it to happen. That means Verizon gets them for below-market value. What did Ottawa get from the United States in return for this unprecedented access to Canada? Nothing. No reciprocity in the US for Canadian companies. In fact, can you even imagine Canadian wireless companies getting preferred access to New York, Los Angeles or Chicago?

3 straightforward ways to close the loopholes The Bell team is ready to compete with anyone for your business on a level playing field. But big US companies taking advantage of rules designed to help Canadian startups is just not on the level. To get wireless policy back on track, we propose that… 1. Canadian wireless carriers should be able to bid for the same amount of Canada’s airwaves as Americans can. 2. US operators entering Canada should roll out wireless service across the country, just as Canadian companies have. 3. If a small Canadian wireless company seeks a buyer, Canadian carriers should be allowed to bid, just as the Americans can. US giants don’t need special help from the Canadian government, and Canadians shouldn’t have to pay their way into the country. Instead, let’s give Canada’s own communications companies a fair chance to compete with them. Sincerely,

George Cope, President and CEO, Bell Canada and BCE

Nanaimo News Bulletin 11

We’re not the only ones concerned “Why would Ottawa create a policy environment that favours a U.S. telecom giant and deliberately trashes the shareholders of the major Canadian wireless players?” Terence Corcoran, Financial Post, June 27, 2013

“But there is no basis for the Commission to give certain large companies a regulatory hand-out… so they can acquire spectrum… at a substantial discount over the price that would otherwise be received.” Verizon, Regulatory filing to the FCC on U.S. Incentive Auctions, March 12, 2013

“In fact a report published last week commissioned by the CRTC suggested a similar conclusion (that wireless prices have come down meaningfully since 2008) – so we’re not entirely sure where Industry Canada is getting its data about the market not being competitive. Then again, the government wouldn’t let a little data get in the way of a good lever for getting votes, and that’s clearly what is going on here.” Bob Bek, CIBC World Markets, July 12, 2013

“The perception that Canadian prices are high relative to other jurisdictions has been seized upon by the government as an invitation to intervene and deliver lower prices. But the perception is false and the invitation is illogical.” Dr. Jeffrey Church and Andrew Wilkins of the University of Calgary, The Globe and Mail, July 8, 2013

“…the federal government’s anything-goes market interventions to support a fourth carrier have so gerrymandered the rules to favour Verizon sweeping in that any investor seriously interested in buying shares in Canadian telecom companies should be spooked.” Sean Silcoff, The Globe and Mail, June 27, 2013

“This will mean significant layoffs which could easily trump the hiring to be done by Verizon, which besides a needed presence in retail outlets, should be able to initially handle a lot of functions (marketing, billing) from the United States.” Adam Shine, National Bank Financial, June 26, 2013

“Unlike the national incumbents in Canada, we wonder if Verizon has a strategy for wireless broadband in rural markets, a key political consideration for the current Conservative Government.” Dvai Ghose, Canaccord Genuity, July 2, 2013

The authors, publications and corporate or academic institutions referenced have not approved or endorsed any statement or position of Bell. No endorsement by them of this message by Bell is intended or implied.

Once you have set your renovation goals and priorities, you need to find the right contractor to carry out your project. Many homeowners enjoy taking on home improvement projects themselves. Today, there is a tremendous amount of do-it-yourself information available from building supply retailers, specialty television programs, bookstores and on-line. If saving money is the main reason you are considering doing the work yourself, consider talking to a professional renovation contractor first. They may be able to suggest ways they could do the work while controlling costs or they may be able to divide the work into more affordable stages for you. The type of renovation professional you need will depend on what’s involved in your project. • For simple projects involving only one activity such as replacement of roofing, siding or windows, a specialized trade contractor or contract installer may be best. • If your project involves changes to your heating, electrical or plumbing systems, you should consult a licensed trade contractor. • For renovation projects that will involve more than one trade or require structural changes to your home, you should look for a general renovation contractor who can manage all aspects of the work, including development of detailed plans. To get your job done right the first time you can find the names of local professional contractors on our website at www.chbacvi.com. You can also often get contractor leads from friends and neighbours who have carried out renovations similar to those you plan. It is important to interview any prospective contractor, check their references and get their quotes in writing before deciding who to hire.

 If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.  ~ Red Adair Custom Homes|Renovations|Design & Build

Cartoonist shares the soul of Seoul

E

ditorial cartoons by a popular South Korean artist are the featured exhibit at Nanaimo Arts Council gallery in August. Gyoung-il Ko’s work will be on display at the gallery in Nanaimo North Town Centre from Aug. 1-22. An opening reception is planned for Aug. 8. Gyoung-il Ko is an associate professor in the department of cartoon and digital contents at Sangmyung University in Seoul, South Korea. He teaches drawing, painting and caricature animation there. He also contributes political caricature cartoons to the newspaper and publishing company Han-Kyoreh, one of most liberal daily newspapers in South Korea, and Dong-A, a weekly magazine. Ko was born in 1968 in South Korea. In 1993 he graduated from Chungju teachers college with a teaching certificate for fine arts. At that time, however, South Korea had been ruled by dictatorial powers which created serious political tensions. Instead of teaching, Ko began publishing political cartoons that were a stinging satire on the government and its policies. Having become famous for cartoons that mercilessly lampooned the dictator of the day, Ko found his work more and more suppressed by the government. In order to escape from the dictatorial government’s attempt to gag him, Ko went to Japan and attended Kyoto Seika graduate school, studying fine arts, science and the caricature process for a master’s degree in 1998. Ko returned to South Korea and got a part-time lecturing position in a Korean universities. He also continuously released his works as a cartoonist. In 2000, Ko became a full-time lecturer in the department of cartoon at Kyoto Seika Univer-

the university by their appearance in the media. In 2009, the International Exchange Award was given to Ko from Kyoto international Cartoon Forum because of significant contributions of facilitating the international exchange of cartoons in Korea, Japan and China. Currently Ko is publishing a 20-piece series in the Hankyoreh newspaper in Seoul. South Korea has had rapid economic growth in the past generation, through years of military dictatorships and more recently democracy. However, individual freedoms have not always kept pace with this economic development.

Ko’s work is representative of this conflict, portraying Seoul as the city of joy and sorrow, hardship and overcoming the pain of living with the 21st century. Korea is seemingly wearing the clothes of a modern democracy, but underneath still suffers from the remnants of colonialism, dictatorships and the Japanese Occupation. The gallery is open Monday, Tuesday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Wednesday to Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sundays and holidays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the exhibit please visit www. nanaimoartscouncil.ca.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:

UP TO AUG. 5th, 2013

Aries

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, a challenge arises that requires you to have the utmost confidence in your abilities. Some self-confidence and hard work are all you need to successfully tackle this challenge.

Taurus

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you can choose from among many paths, but this week you will have to carefully think about which way to go. Otherwise you may end up having to backtrack and start over.

Gemini

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, unless you change your line of thinking, you may have trouble in the romance department this week. You don’t have to be a smooth operator, but just sweeten your sentiments.

Cancer

Leo

Virgo

Libra

Scorpio

Sagittarius

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, sometimes you like being the center of attention, and other times you are content to blend into the background. This week you will have to embrace the spotlight. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, after letting things slide for awhile, you will need to get a better handle on your finances this week. If you feel as though things have gotten out of control, then talk to a professional.

Capricorn

Aquarius

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Issues at work may have you contemplating a career change, Virgo. But you may want to hold off on changes for a little while longer until things settle down.

Pisces

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 A quick visit with family can make you feel refreshed and renewed, Libra. There is nothing like spending time with the ones you love to improve your mood. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, catch up on some overdue health screenings. There has never been a better time to get these things done, and you don’t want to put your health on the back burner. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, there is only so much persuading you can do before you must let others choose their own paths. A difficult conversation has you second-guessing something.

Attendees are encouraged to bring books to exchange with other participants. Nicolle Nattrass will also be on hand with a little beauty treatment from Arbonne.

the B.C. SPCA, in a news release. Some of the photos entered in previous contests have been

featured in the B.C. SPCA’s AnimalSense and Bark magazines, local newspapers and even a book City Critters: Wildlife in the Urban Jungle, authored by journalist Nicholas Read. The annual contest encourages participants to explore greenspaces, roadsides, beaches and even backyards to find striking images that represent the resiliency of local wildlife living at the interface with humans. Wildlife includes free-living birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and insects, but not exotic, feral or domestic animals, or wildlife in zoos or

rehabilitation facilities. Prizes will be awarded for the top three photos in each of two categories: wild settings and urban habitats. Wild settings photos should feature animals in their natural habitats. Urban habitats should highlight people’s special relationship with animals in their backyards. The contest is open to all adult (age 14 years and up) backyard and amateur photographers residing in B.C. Learn more at spca.bc.ca/ wildlife-in-focus.

V.I. WINS 35-10 in road game to begin 2013.

Nanaimo boxla teams winners

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The V.I. Raiders won their first game, and they intend to only get better. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team started the 2013 season with a 35-10 win over the Westshore Rebels on Saturday night in Victoria. The game was disjointed, with tons of penalties and a few too many plays going awry. “You could sure tell on the field today, I think both teams would agree, it felt like a preseason game and we’ve got a lot of work to do,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. The turning point came late in the third quarter with the score 18-10 for Nanaimo. After the Rebels came up with their third interception of the game, Raiders linebacker Dylan Chapdelaine intercepted the ball back, leading to a 16-yard touchdown run from V.I. quarterback Jahmari Bennett. “I liked the way we played in the second half,” Blokker said. “I thought we got our spirit a little bit more and we got a little more physical and kind of took over.” Taylor Flavel scored the first touchdown of the season on a one-yard run

five minutes after kickoff. Jordan Kuziek got his team the ball back right away with a fumble recovery, and one play later Bennett found Dustin Rodriguez for a 20-yard TD reception. The second quarter was all Rebels, as they scored a one-yard rushing touchdown and hit a 34-yard

field goal. After the Raiders regained control in the third, they kept coming in the fourth. Ash Gayat’s fumble recovery led to a 22-yard field goal from Ryan Jones, then V.I. quarterback Jaeden Marwick eluded Westshore’s entire defence and dove into the endzone for a

54-yard TD run. Raiders defensive end Quinton Bowles, who had a sack, said players decided at halftime that they needed to start being the bullies. “Once we were in the locker room we realized that we needed to get our intensity a lot higher,” he said.

Nigel Henry, Raiders linebacker, said his team realized it played “stupid” in the first half and tried to put that in the past. “We just had to get our energy up and make sure that we didn’t get down on ourselves for the mistakes that we made,” he said. ◆ See ‘WIN’ /30

Palladian wins championship as fastball series goes distance The fastball finalists this season were about as evenly matched as it gets, but one team managed to prevail. Palladian Developments defeated the Wheatsheaf Fastball Club 5-4 in the rubber match of a best-of-three series Thursday at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park to win the Nanaimo Senior Men’s Fastball League championship. Palladian won Game 1 by a 3-2 score and Wheatsheaf won the next game 3-0, setting up the finale. The game appropriately came down to the seventh and

last inning, when Reid Swanson hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the inning to score Trevor MacIntyre. Mike Peters was the winning pitcher in Game 3 after throwing the whole series for Palladian. Lee Lucas pitched all three games for Wheatsheaf. Both teams finished the regular season with identical 13-3 records. Lucas was named Most Valuable Player in the NSMFL this season and Peters was chosen Top Pitcher. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Wheatsheaf baserunner Todd Helton is tagged out at home plate by Palladian catcher Trevor MacIntyre during Wednesday’s game at Pioneer Park.

Nanaimo District Lacrosse Association squads wrapped up solid seasons with fine performances at provincials. The Nanaimo Timbermen peewee A2 team had the best result, winning provincial gold with a 4-2 win over the Maple Ridge Burrards earlier this month in Kamloops. Goal scorers in the final were Fisher Zawasky, Ethan Jones, Jake McGonigle with the winner and Josh Zary with an empty netter. Colby Bowman picked up the win in net. McGonigle was the final game MVP and Zary made the tournament all-star team. Winning game MVP honours leading up to the final were Bowman, Evan Soucy, Andrew Mjoen and Zary. The Timbermen midget C team won silver this past weekend at Port Coquitlam and the bantam A2 T-men were the most sportsmanlike team at provincials in Delta in mid-July. Bantam A2 coach Steve Bishop was the Fair Play Coach award winner at that tourney.

Stilwell races to new record Nanoose Bay’s Michelle Stilwell set a world record in the women’s wheelchair T52 classification 800-metres Thursday at the International Paralympic Committee world championships in Lyon, France. She won the race in two minutes 14.79 seconds, eclipsing the previous world record of 2:16.71 set in 2005 by Canadian Lisa Franks. Stilwell – a multiple medal winner at the 2004 and 2008 Paralympics and multiple world record holder – won a gold medal in the 200m and a silver in the 100m race at the Paralympic Games in London last summer.

‘Freakish’ finish sinks squad

I

ACME TIMBERMEN lose 8-7 in overtime to Tri-City Bandits. BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

A brief playoff run came to a frustrating finish for the Acme Timbermen. The city’s senior B lacrosse team lost a bizarre 8-7 overtime game to the Tri-City Bandits on Sunday night at Frank Crane Arena to drop a best-of-five series three games to none. The loss eliminates Nanaimo from the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association playoffs. The T-men feel as though they deserved a different outcome in Game 3. They led 6-3 going into the third period, but the Bandits tied the game

when they scored on a penalty shot with nine seconds left. Then in overtime, the senior B T-men managed to tie things 7-7 but then scored on their own net with a minute left. “Tonight was just a freakish night,” said Mike Maughan, the team’s coach. “One of the weirdest games I’ve seen in my 35 years of lacrosse.” The Acme Painting Timbermen were rolling along until they felt some of the calls went against them, and they couldn’t keep their cool. Shawn Swanson, T-men general manager, said it can be difficult to keep focus in that sort of situation. “It’s really tough,” he said. “It’s something that good teams do well and average teams don’t do well and we’re in between … So sometimes that can be our downfall.” In the final minute the T-men

repeatedly threw the ball away to the other team. Those missed chances to close out the game caught up to them when they sent out too many men on the floor with nine seconds left in regulation. It was a close call, but the rules call for a penalty shot in that situation, and the Bandits made good on the opportunity. “They’re a strong team and they’re a tough team to beat – they showed that all year…” said Maughan. “But we know how strong a team we have and how capable we are so it’s just really frustrating for it to end this quickly.” LACROSSE TALK … Nick Patterson made 46 saves in defeat. Ryan Forslund, Jon Diplock and Blair Pinnock each had two-goal games and Ryan Dietterle was Nanaimo’s other scorer. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The mistakes are correctible, said Matt Blokker. He saw a lack of cohesion in some of the units, and saw guys turning the wrong way, and said those are the sort of

Kenneth Henry (Ken) Medland

(“Millie�)

May 23, 1925 – July 24, 2013

Anderson

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Ken Medland, surrounded by his family, after a difficult illness, met with courage and fortitude. Ken was born in Chemainus, B.C. to Elinor Robertson and Henry Medland. He was pre-deceased by his beloved wife, Marie, in December 2011. Ken is survived by devoted daughters, Dorina Medland and Darlene Collinson; very valued sons-in-law, Larry Dudeck and Ted Collinson. Three cherished grandchildren of whom he was extremely proud, also survive: Jill Collinson (Ben Lanthier), Alex Collinson, and Blair Dudeck. Also mourning his passing are special cousins: Lorraine Buchanan, Fred Smith, Sally and Lorne Rozzano. He further leaves countless life-long friends from his many community involvements over the years, and a large extended family. Ken was raised by his grandmother, Anne Little Robertson, in Ladysmith, B.C. He attended Ladysmith High School where he excelled in academics, track and field, and softball. Ken attended U.B.C. and graduated from its first Pharmacy class in 1949. He and Marie were married that year and he began working for Cunningham Drugs, where he won the “Manager of the Year Award� four times. He became a manager of the Terminal Park store which later became Shoppers Drug Mart. Ken retired in 1985 and he and Marie were able to travel extensively in Canada, Europe, the United States, China, Israel and Mexico. At retirement, he and Marie were then freed up to attend the activities of their three grandchildren. Ken spent countless hours attending their games and other activities and giving them encouragement whenever he could. During his professional career Ken was also actively involved in civic politics as an Alderman (1965 – 1975) and was made a Freeman of the City of Nanaimo in 2009. He served on the newly amalgamated Nanaimo City Council and the Nanaimo Regional District. Ken was secretary of the Nanaimo Timbermen’s Lacrosse team when it won the Mann Cup in 1956 and president of the Nanaimo Labatt’s Lacrosse team when it won the 1960 B.C. Championship. He was inducted with the Timbermen in Nanaimo’s First Sports Hall of Fame in 2008. Ken was a board member of the BC College of Pharmacists from 1986–1990 and was a 1986 recipient of the A.H. Robbins “Bowl of Hygea Award� that recognizes pharmacists for community service. Ken was a lifetime member of the Nanaimo Lions Club, since 1952, serving as president in 1965/66 and the Nanaimo Curling Club, participating fully for over 60 years and was a past president. He was also a vice-president of the Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association. He continued curling and volunteering right up to December 2012. Ken was also a member of the Nanaimo Probus Investment Club for many years and had served as vice chair. Ken enjoyed the game of golf but his passion was curling. In 1998 he travelled with his great friend, Nori Nishio, to Scotland to participate in the Strathcona Cup, representing Canada which won that year. Ken organized many bonspiels over the years but he especially enjoyed the Nanaimo Family Bonspiel and relished being the oldest curler participating each year, with his immediate family, for over ten years. Ken believed in respect and equality for all people and he instilled these values in his daughters and grandchildren by modeling them throughout his life. He had a great sense of humour, loved to tell jokes and always did a stand-up performance at the Senior Men’s Curling wind-up. Ken had an outgoing personality and loved to meet new friends wherever he went which continued right up to the end of his life. A Celebration of Life will take place at the Nanaimo Curling Centre, 106 Wall Street, Nanaimo, BC on Thursday, August 1st at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, donations in Ken’s memory may be made to the Nanaimo Curling Centre, 106 Wall Street, Nanaimo, BC or the Nanaimo Lions Club (larriet@shaw. ca or jim-wilson@shaw.ca), or the charity of your choice. “Just as the sun will set then rise with each and every dawn, the souls of those who lived life well, eternally live on.�

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mildred (“Millie�) Anderson (nee Haughton) July 21st, 2013 at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, just short of her 80th birthday. She will be missed tremendously by her daughter, Cathy (Ed) of Everett, Washington, and her siblings Dorothy Hutchinson of Langley, Pat Wright and Loraine Erickson of Nanaimo, John Haughton of Kamloops, and Barb Moir of Elmsdale, Nova Scotia, as well as by her many nieces and nephews, and their children. Millie was born in Kamloops, B.C. on July 24th, 1933, and was known throughout her life for her great sense of humor and quick wit. She had a creative mind and enjoyed all kinds of games, especially word games and jigsaw puzzles. She had an affinity for nature, and loved to spend time outdoors, particularly near the ocean. Millie lived in both Kamloops and Vancouver during her working years, and developed many long-standing friendships through her employment at Royal Inland Hospital (1970’s) and at Vancouver Vocational Institute (1980’s to 90’s). She retired to Nanaimo in 1994, and made many new friends through her participation in seniors’ classes at Bowen Park, as well as through her unique ability to connect with people she met in her everyday activities. Millie didn’t own a car, but with her knapsack on her back, she walked everywhere she could, even as her health declined. She believed in self-determination, hard work, laughter, and the importance of gratitude. She loved her family, and enjoyed spending time with them, both in person and – sometimes for hours – on the phone. Her passing leaves us with a gap in our hearts and a lot less laughter in our lives. There will be no service by request. Condolences may be offered at telfordn@shaw.ca Telford’s Nanaimo 250-591-6644
