Compost contracts suspended by CRD Foundation Organics in Central Saanich still able to bring in waste from other sources Devon MacKenzie News staff

As of late last week, the Capital Regional District had suspended their contracts with Foundation Organics composting facility in Central Saanich. It was announced Thursday, Aug. 1 that the CRD was suspending the contracts with the facility on Lochside Drive that accepts food and other organic waste matter for processing “The primary into compost. Estimates from the CRD issue that’s being are that the suspension of the contracts will see an dealt with is approximate drop of 30 per odour.” cent of the facility’s overall waste intake. – Russ Smith “Our contracts running at high level make up around 30 per cent of the volume of the facility at a minimum,” said Russ Smith, the senior manager of the CRD’s environmental resource management. He added that the suspensions come on the heels of a high number of complaints from residents regarding odour from the facility as the weather has grown warmer. “The primary issue that’s being dealt with is odour,” he continued.

inning the hearts and minds of the public — including the municipality and its politicians — is at the fore of ongoing efforts by the Friends of Shoal Harbour to raise awareness of the impact people have on one of the oldest migratory bird sanctuaries on the Pacific coast. Open Saturday 12-2

Human impact on this habitat was raised most recently with the construction of a sea wall on private property in Roberts Bay. It raised the spectre of how small changes can have a long-term impact on habitat — the so-called death of a thousand cuts. Many homes on the bay have sea walls to protect against erosion, a fact that proponents of better habitat preservation say change the way the environment behaves, poten-

tially harming wildlife. Yet, members of Friends of Shoal Harbour Society say while volatile issues such as a single sea wall may raise the public’s awareness about the sanctuary, it never really lasts long enough to get people’s buy-in to protecting the environment that they love to enjoy.

Peninsula News in brief Altercation led to collision

VICTORIA — Victoria Police detectives are taking over the investigation into a serious collision at Ogden Point that left a Central Saanich man with lifethreatening injuries. On July 24 around 7:20 a.m., VicPD responded to a motorcycle and SUV collision in the parking lot at Ogden Point. Initial reports suggested the 55-year-old Central Saanich man, who was the rider of the motorcycle, was hit from behind by an SUV driven by a 55-year-old Sidney man. Police have since determined that the two drivers may have been involved in an altercation that began on the Pat Bay Highway near the Royal Oak exit. VicPD detectives are now looking for anyone who may have seen the two vehicles

Sanctuary impacts part of long-term plan Continued from page 1

“Our main goal is to raise public interest through events like our All Buffleheads Day in October,” says Hugh Richards, chair of FOSH. “This [debate over the sea wall] is not the best method of generating long-term public interest.” So, instead of rattling too many cages and being confrontational, most members of FOSH want to take a more gentle approach, offer people fun things to do and help educate them about the bird sanctuary and how they can continue to enjoy its beauty and natural environment. That said, the society is aware of long-term impacts of development and growth in North Saanich and Sidney that will affect the sanctuary, home to thousands of migratory birds, not to mention local sea life. “Public education and awareness is our hope,” said Sue Staniforth, a biologist, environmental educator and consultant and FOSH member. “People live here because it’s a spectacular space,” she continued. “Often though, it’s out-of-mind and people’s activities, while not meant to be malicious, have an impact.”

Steven Heywood/News staff

Roberts Bay in Sidney is part of the Shoal Harbour Migratory Bird Sanctuary that has existed since 1931.

Responsibility at issue FOSH hopes people will grow to value the sanctuary and the places, like Roberts Bay, that form small parts of it, because the two levels of government that are supposed to be watching over them are limited. Instead, the responsibility to protect such places is falling more often to local municipalities or citizen groups. Environmental scientist Farrell Boyce says the provincial and federal governments have been stripped to the bone and cannot provide support or field work in individual cases. “That puts the onus on the municipalities,” he said, “and their support will be key to any successes we might have.” First, however, FOSH members hope to create new partnerships with other community groups and citizens — and from there, a larger public voice can have a greater influence over local policy and be more involved in decision making. “We are trying to hit on the idea of better consultation and notification of stakeholders in and around the sanctuary,” Boyce said. “There is a public interest here and more information has to get out.” In the case of the new sea wall, the approval process was handled by Town of Sidney staff and did not go through the council, nor was it a decision made in the public eye. That’s why it took people by surprise, no more so than FOSH mem-

Friends of Shoal Harbour

The Friends of Shoal Harbour (FOSH) society grew out of the group, Concerned Citizens for the Coast (CCC) which was formed in 1991 in Sidney. FOSH has had society status for a little more than one year. It is made up of area citizens, like-minded in their dedication to the ongoing stewardship of the Shoal Harbour Migratory Bird Sanctuary, which has been in place on the coast of Sidney and North Saanich since 1931. The sanctuary has a water area of 147 hectares, split between the two municipalities. Impacts include marinas, which cover 16 per cent of the sanctuary water area in Sidney; 23 per cent in North Saanich. To help promote their activities and education about the sanctuary, FOSH hosts All Buffleheads Day in October (the 15th this year, with more events planned - watch the PNR for details), highlighting one of the more prominent bird species to stopover on their annual migration.

ber and biologist Kerry Finley, who lives on the bay and reacted strongly to the new sea wall. Town Chief Administrative Officer Randy Humble said “staff approved the building permit application based upon the application being made and the fact that it met the Town’s approval requirements – along with the other levels of government.” The work — official property sur-

veys, arborist and engineers’ reports — represented a high level of care, said Humble. The Town also verified its actions with the federal and provincial government agencies responsible. “The Town’s bylaws and policies do not discount the environmental habitat value of Roberts Bay or the Shoal Harbour Bird Sanctuary, rather the Town’s bylaws and poli-

cies supplement the protection given to this area by the federal and provincial levels of governments,” Humble stated in an email. “The Town’s bylaws and policies work in concert to provide protection in the Town’s area of jurisdiction, which is upland of the foreshore.” Mayor Larry Cross said the town did stop the work on the sea wall when they received public concerns about its construction. He said they took extra steps to confirm it was being done on private property before allowing work to resume. Cross said to change the process in mid-stream would not have been on and added he would be happy to work with FOSH and others on a long-term framework. “Council is adamant in its responsibility to protect the foreshore. We need to be careful in the sanctuary so in this case, we made all (government agencies) aware of what was happening.” A spokesperson for Environment Canada said the new sea wall falls outside of its jurisdiction. “Information about the site has been reviewed with Environment Canada staff and officials with the Town of Sidney and the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations,” stated Environment Canada media spokesperson Mark Johnson in an email. “Environment Canada understands that the Town of Sidney has reviewed the design of the seawall to meet engineering requirements and minimize impacts on vegetation.” PLEASE SEE: FOSH calls for a plan, page 4

ciencies surrounding the complaints. The bottom line is that we weren’t making sufficient progress so we’ve suspended the contracts until the deficiencies are solved,” he said. Foundation Organics applied for and received a license to run a compost facility two years ago in June. Since then, the operation has been a point of contention for neighbours of the facility who say the smell, noise and dust stemming from operations is unbearable. “The smell is absolutely wretched,” said Lee Hardy, who lives next door to the facility with her husband Ray Baker. “I’ve had nosebleeds, I get headaches and nausea, my daughter had a lung infection. It’s just nasty.” The company did not offer comment on neighbours’ complaints. Hardy said her and her husband take solace in the fact that the CRD is making moves to improve the situation. “At least now we know the CRD is taking some steps in the right direction and I hope they keep monitoring and cataloguing what’s going on there.” Central Saanich Mayor and Chair of the CRD Alastair Bryson said he’s happy something has been done to let residents know

Ray Baker stands on his property which borders the compost facility on Stanhope Farm. that the issue is being addressed. “Because it’s a bylaw enforcement issue there are aspects of the issue that have to be dealt with in-camera,” explained Bryson. “What I can say is that I’ve been fielding a significant number of complaints from the Tanner Ridge area and the Martindale Valley from people who aren’t able to take advantage of the weather because they aren’t able to open their windows or enjoy their back yards. I understand the concerns of the citizens and agree it’s unacceptable for residents to have to endure an obnoxious odour on an ongoing basis. With the actions taken by the CRD and the release sent out to the media I’m hoping it will at least inform residents that there is a high level

of activity on this file. “It’s a step in the right direction and provides a little more clarity to residents.” Although the suspensions won’t have an immediate effect on the odour front — it will take a short time for the current compost stock to be finished processing — Bryson said he’s happy that processes have been followed and residents are receiving the message. “It’s definitely an incremental process because when you work with business operators you have to follow legal steps, but at least the CRD’s choice to suspend the contracts informs the community of some of the actions that are being taken to try and address this problem,” he said. Matt Mansell, manager of the composting

facility, said the suspension of the CRD’s contracts won’t have a major impact on the facility’s bottom line. “Yes, the CRD decided to suspend their contract ... and that will have a small effect on our bottom line, but it won’t be anything major,” explained Mansell, who added that the facility also brings in organic waste from other sources including private business and restaurants. According to the CRD, if the suspension of their contracts with the facility do not alleviate some of the concerns stemming from the operation (including odour) continued non-compliance from Foundation Organics will ultimately see the facility’s operating license suspended. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com

Taking all of this as a given, Boyce said the acrimony over the project might have been avoided if stakeholder groups like FOSH were invited to comment. “There needs to be a plan, a guide put in place,” added Staniforth. Richards said the public as well would be more satisfied if they felt due process was considered — something they can only get if they can be involved in some way. “That kind of notification process, as part of local planning, would achieve a lot in avoiding those kind of hassles,” said Richards. FOSH is moving ahead with its longterm plans of researching the total interest in the Shoal Harbour Bird Sancutary — looking at everything from tourism and research, to development and the marine industry and its historical role in the area. They will continue to reach out to the public at special events and hope to generate more interest in the sanctuary. “The core group of FOSH has great experiences, knowledge and passion,” said Boyce. “But we are realists. We’re dealing with real issues, not politics and we have to be patient.” • • • •

Editor’s Note: To clarify two points stemming from the July 31 PNR editorial on this subject, the sea wall was approved by Town staff in a standard, in-house process much like issuing a building permit. Council did not approve it. As well, the Town pointed out that the province establishes the natural boundary of the shoreline, not the local municipality.

Housing report calls for higher densities Special meeting of North Saanich council set for August 13 to introduce final CTQ Consulting report Steven Heywood News staff

A housing strategy implementation plan is complete and recommends that the District of North Saanich allow higher density housing in up to four parts of the community. That is the first of 11 recommendations made in the final revisions of a Housing Strategy Implementation plan set to be debated by council at a special meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 13 at municipal hall. This report stemmed from the District’s public housing consultation process, which was submitted to the municipality last month by CTQ Consulting of Kelowna. They held a series of open houses and stakeholder group interviews in the spring to both gauge public sentiment on creating more housing in the District and look into how three recommendations from a 2008 housing study could be implemented after languishing for nearly five

The recommendations 1. Locations — Two primary areas of development of higher density housing (Southeast Quadrant in and around East Saanich Road and McDonald Park Road east of the Pat Bay Highway); two future areas of opportunity (McTavish Road West and Sandown Park). 2. Density — Allow higher densities of housing in each of those four areas. 3. Urban Containment Boundary — establish a District UCB to better control growth. 4. Servicing priorities — Confirm capacities for sewer and water systems. 5. Design Guidelines — Review and revise for form and character of higherdensity homes. 6. Redefine priority objectives — Align the OCP with these changes. 7. Communication — Strengthen communications with neighbours. 8. Seniors housing needs — Develop a strategy. 9. RGS/RCS — Decide on an approach to address Capital Regional District directives. 10. Upgrade the OCP — Enshrine new, higher-density housing policies. 11. Other — Consider: a housing task force; review development application process requirements and area planning.

years. The consultation has been controversial in the community, with opinions split mainly between those who would like to see some level of growth and those who don’t wish to see the character of the District changed. The North Saanich Residents Association even held their own survey on the issue, in an attempt to offer a different take on a similar survey conducted by the consultant.

While the issue has been polarizing, a council majority has been pushing for change and the implementation of higher housing densities in response to a stated need for workforce housing by local industrial employers. The District has already made it possible for a 40-unit, medium density residential project to proceed at 9395 East Saanich Rd. — within one of the report’s recommended areas. That project still won’t pro-

ceed pending the outcome of other negotiations on site servicing and an amenities contribution. The report from CTQ also addresses the fact that for any new project to proceed in North Saanich, the District will have to change its regional growth strategy and context statement to meet Capital Regional District requirements and might have to update its official community plan as well.

CTQ goes on to recommend that the District consider imposing an urban containment boundary around the four areas of potential development (Southeast Quadrant, McDonald Park Road, McTav-

ish Road West, and the Sandown Park area). The report summarizes the issues and concerns on the housing debate in North Saanich and offers a proposed action plan to implement the recom-

mendations over varying degrees of time. The special meeting of council starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 13 at the municipal hall on Mills Road. editor@peninsula newsreview.com

Youth helping youth through Coast Capital grants Daniel Palmer News staff

Two dozen Vancouver Island youth programs received a big boost from Coast Capital Savings last week to help improve financial literacy, spur on entrepreneurs and get more young people volunteering in the community. The Coast Capital Savings Youth Leaders Community Council is granting more than $257,000 to 24 organizations on the Island that are impacting youth for the better. “The council for youth, by youth,” said Victoria resident Ivan Watson, who chairs the Island council. “Anti-bullying is

a priority area we’ve funded, as well as financial literacy and other areas where we can make an impact.” The community council began in Victoria last year and has since spread to Vancouver and Surrey. The innovative model allows a team of eight young professionals under 30 to evaluate grant applications from organizations in their own community, said Wendy Lachance, Coast Capital’s director of community leadership. “We’re extremely proud of the way these young leaders have come together, and the discipline they’ve really put together to follow the evaluation criteria we’ve put in front of them,” she

said. Local organizations that received funding for youth programs include the Greater Victoria Volunteer Society, KidSport, Power to Be, Community Micro Lending and the Victoria READ Society. Coast Capital annually grants seven per cent of its pre-tax profits – about $4.8 million in 2013 – to non-profit organizations in B.C. In August, the financial institution will begin considering community investment grant applications for the fourth quarter of 2013. The deadline to submit an application is Aug. 23.

OUR VIEW

Small steps to labour peace W

hen the Liberal government and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation signed a short collective agreement in the summer of 2012, nobody anticipated the same players would be back at the bargaining table 12 months later. But here we are in 2013 with the re-elected B.C. Liberal government making drastic changes to how the bargaining process will go this time around. Last week’s announcement by education minister Peter Fassbender to remove school trustees from the board of the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association could be a step in the right direction for both sides. The minister’s claim that this will allow the union to negotiate directly with the government, as opposed to an intermediary whose hands are essentially tied, should give the teachers more clout at the bargaining table. For whatever reason, whenever the BCTF goes through negotiations it’s a more tumultuous, public process than other unions in the province. Having to go through a middleman – the BCPSEA – wasn’t working to anyone’s benefit, especially given that the government, which has the power to legislate teachers back to work or tear up contracts, was using BCPSEA as a wall between them and the teachers. This shift shows the province is taking a slightly softer and more direct approach to bargaining with the teachers and that’s a good thing. But it’s likely motivated in some ways by their unprecedented move to seek a 10-year agreement with the teachers. As it stands, there’s nothing in it for the BCTF to agree to such a lengthy contract. Ten years is an unbearably long time to be locked into a contract, especially when one considers the ups and downs of the Canadian economy we saw in the last decade. If the government is trying a “we scratch your back, you scratch ours” approach to bargaining, it’s not going to work. A more open bargaining process between both sides is a step in the right direction to hopefully long-term labour peace, but 10 years is too long. What do you think?

Whether the review of that coal mine is federal, provincial or combined, it requires extensive consultation with affected parties. That’s great, but goodwill could evaporate quickly if a coal mine ends up getting a permit despite Tahltan objections. Rustad’s Nechako Lakes constituency is also a focal point for oil and gas pipeline proposals. Donaldson highlighted another problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace. That agreement included a joint land-use plan. Then the Environmental Assessment Office asked the Gitanyow for its input on proposed gas pipelines through its territory, to feed the government’s liquefied natural gas plans. Again, the joint land-use plan has no provision for pipelines. The Gitanyow hereditary chiefs wrote to the B.C. government in July, threatening to go to court over the pipeline proposal and questioning the reconciliation agreement. Resource revenue sharing agreements and shared landuse plans are well-intentioned and represent real progress. But these situations show how fragile they are.

O

n behalf of the Friends of the Sidney North Saanich Library, I would like to thank the volunteers, library staff and the public who donated books and all those who attended our book sale held Saturday, June 22. We had a very successful sale and all money raised helps support the library and its programs. Eleanore Arkesteyn

P

eninsula Celebrations Society would like to thank the staff from the Town of Sidney for all their help over the July 1 long weekend. Our committee could not put together the events for June 30 or July 1 without the commitment of the staff from the Town. We cannot thank you enough for your kindness, thoroughness and willingness to be there do such a great job. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Who are the Friends of Shoal Harbour?

A

rticles in consecutive editions of the PNR (Wednesday, July 24 and Friday, July 26) refer to concerns with the Town of Sidney’s approval of new sea wall construction on All Bay Road within Roberts Bay. The July 26 article (Seawall construction goes ahead) refers to Friends of Shoal Harbour, an organization unfamiliar to many. In 2010, following a recommendation in the 2008 Marine Task Force Final Report, a joint municipally-led Sidney/North Saanich initiative was proposed in order to research an integrated plan for Shoal Harbour. The plan recognized the value of the 1931 Migratory Bird Sanctuary (Shoal Harbour and Roberts Bay)

and the public interest in a beautiful foreshore and the needs of a vibrant marine industry. After initial meetings the Town of Sidney withdrew its support and the municipally-led initiative stalled. Some of the citizen-participants in the original initiative feel that a plan as described above is very much worth pursuing and have come together in a non-profit society incorporated under the B.C. Societies Act with the name Friends of Shoal Harbour Society. In researching how an integrated plan could be brought forward, Friends of Shoal Harbour Society was assisted by the Environmental Law Clinic at the University of Victoria. Their exhaustive research led to

a report describing all the many overlapping jurisdictions, regulations etc. claimed by Federal and Provincial agencies regarding the near shore environment and harbours in particular. In this grand tangle one thing is clear, without active leadership at the municipal level and support from residents, no effective plan will result. This conclusion was confirmed by the ruckus over the sea wall construction in Roberts Bay. None of the federal or provincial agencies with oversight on such matters ventured an opinion when informed. Friends of Shoal Harbour feel that had an effective, publicly-supported municipal plan been in place, the owners of the Roberts Bay prop-

Front page ad insulted intelligence Much has been made of the new front page ads on the PNR. As is the norm, the usual whiners submitted their childish and marxist rhetoric masked as genuine concern and sentimental ponderings. I have, until now, completely disagreed with them. I applaud the paper for joining forces with business both local and from the rest of Greater Victoria to earn a few bucks and keep them in print. I do however take issue with last Wednesday’s front page ads.

Promoting local businesses is one thing, but taking tax payer money from a government agency who wants to insult our intelligence is quite another. Anyone who needs an ad like that to tell them to put on a helmet, sunscreen, life jacket or to use crosswalks would not posses the mental capacity to read the paper in the first place. John MacIntyre Central Saanich

Good laugh had by readers

Thank you for the good laugh in last Wednesday’s edition of the PNR through the brilliant advertising piece for Preventable.ca. The first headline caught us off guard but when we realized it was all in good fun we eagerly went from article to article having a chuckle at each one. Well done, whether it was your publication’s great idea, or Preventable’s. After the disappointment of the Walmart ad covers, we were happy to see the same concept applied to a good cause.

Curse the predatory butterfly A

ugust already! How can it be? It was July a couple of minutes ago! But this morning there was fog in the hills, mist on my open window and a definite chill in the air. As I walked to an appointment, I passed a woman wearing what had to be a winter jacket. I had a hard time not crying. To make matters worse there are five family birthdays in August and I don’t own an oil-well pumping out money. Do you think I could get away with just sending a card. No? I was afraid you were going to say that. Yesterday two of my daughters helped me reserve a Hawthorn tree to be picked up in late fall and planted in North Saanich in my son’s garden. It has to satisfy both his and my daughter-in-law’s August birthday as a

Over the Garden Fence gift, as it was rather expensive. Paul (my son) wanted a Hawthorn especially as he remembers the beauty we had on Melissa Street. That tree is now 40 years old and a handsome specimen, with limbs flung wide over the deck. It also produces trusses of orange berries, much loved by birds. My daughter, who

lives in Vancouver, and I visited a couple of garden centres and she bought Brussels sprouts plants to go in her garden. I resisted the temptation to buy some myself, remembering last fall’s predatory white butterfly whose eggs on the leaves produced those hungry green caterpillars who ate the leaves down to a thin lace until both the plants and I gave up. I wished that butterfly nothing but stomach cramps and a fate worse than death. I’m taking no chances this year and resisting the urge to purchase broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, in favour of empty pots which require no watering, no weeding and no anxious monitoring. It doesn’t seem natural though,  does it, not

CONSERVE & SAVE WITH NATURAL GAS FURNACES

for a gardener, anyway, to give room to empty pots. I really am getting spoiled ... my eldest daughter has given me a bouquet of large crimson gladiola that bring amazing loveliness to an otherwise drab living room. It seems early for gladiola, but of course its not. I’ve just lost track of time, living in a condominium where one day is much like the one before and almost certainly like the one coming tomorrow.

was originally built by Thomas Tubman who completed it in 1913. The public school operated until 1978 when it was closed. “Normally in those days the school district would burn down buildings like that — that they no longer wanted to use,” explained Taschereau, adding the school was saved from such a fate by one of the founders of SHAS, Maurice Michell. In 1980 with a grant from B.C. Heritage Trust to the tune of $17,000, the schoolhouse was moved to Heritage Acres and stored on temporary timber footings. In 1996 as funds were raised for the project ($80,000 in total) it was moved to a permanent foundation and restored. “They really did a beautiful job on the restoration,” said Taschereau. “It’s wonderful for people who went there as children to be able to come back and see it now.” Along with the displays of historical photos and memorabilia on the big day there will be a special commemorative plaque presentation. The model trains will also be running before and after the celebration. For more information visit www.shas.ca. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com
