RCMP Const. Sarah Brophey, front left, and Const. Jennifer McRae, perform in the Musical Ride on Saturday afternoon at Arbutus Meadows Equestrian Centre at Nanoose Bay. The Rotary Club of Parksville A.M. hosted three sold-out performances over the August long weekend.

Musical Ride becomes trip down memory lane By Brenda gough he RCMP Musical Ride has a long history of performing for Canadians, and when the troop of 33 riders and horses executed their cavalry drill and intricate figures last weekend in Nanoose Bay there was likely no one more thrilled than Cliff Hobbis.

The 93-year-old Nanaimo resident was with the Musical Ride from 1956-58. Hobbis was a member of the RCMP for 10 years and was stationed in various communities across the country before retiring in Nanaimo in 1980. From his front-row seat at the Arbutus Meadows Equestrian Cen-

Significant tension, name calling and physical altercations among Nanaimo councillors and city staff members undermine any attempt at good governance and could be hurting the city’s ability to make decisions, a new governance report reveals. The recently released Watson Governance Summary Report says the city has crippled its own efforts at good governance with behaviour that could be considered “a substantial reputational risk for the city.” Distrust, name calling and sarcastic tones in correspondence between staff and council has left city staff feeling demoralized and some councillors feeling marginalized, it reports. It has also had an overall negative effect on the city’s ability to be high performing, make decisions and maintain the respect of other organizations. But city officials don’t all agree that there is a negative dynamic at City Hall or that it’s affected their ability to do a good job. They also wouldn’t comment on physical altercations mentioned in the report. Coun. Ted Greves, head of the city’s governance committee, says strife with staff members is nothing new for city councils, pointing to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford as a prime example. But he acknowledges that the practice does distract people from doing the work of the city and it needs to stop. The city might need to consult a mediator, he said. Mayor John Ruttan, however, is not convinced the situation at city hall is as dire as the consultant reports and is concerned the document has been released to the public. u See ‘REPORT’ /3

Second-degree murder charge laid By greg Sakaki The News BulleTiN

Last week’s suspicious death on Haliburton Street has resulted in a charge of second-degree murder. Police arrested and charged Leo Ronald Touchie, a 22-year-old from Nanaimo, on Friday evening in connection with the death of Harry Glen Bickle, 52. Bickle was found dead in his apartment that morning. “There was something about it that appeared suspicious. It didn’t appear to be a natural cause of death,” said Const. Kate Mooney of the Nanaimo RCMP’s serious crime unit.

Police do not believe any weapon was used. Mooney said people came forward with information that assisted the investigation. “By talking to witnesses and talking to other people and examining the scene, [Touchie] came up as the suspect,” Mooney said. She said it doesn’t appear that the victim and suspect knew one another. The arrest, she said, “went fairly smoothly, without incident.” Touchie appeared in B.C. Supreme Court in Nanaimo on Tuesday, and his next court date is scheduled for Tuesday (Aug. 13).

u From /1 City officials haven’t yet discussed the report and its recommendations, he said. This is “not a circus we are trying to promote,” Ruttan said. “It was not intended to amuse the public or create interest in the public or get media attention. It was meant to look at ourselves as mayor and council and find out what we are doing wrong and change it.” Nanaimo city officials hired Watson Inc. to review governance at City Hall earlier this year, as part of its new strategic commitments. The review acknowledged many significant steps have been taken toward good governance practice, like public consultation for the strategic plan and development of a new cultural and communications strategy. But Watson Inc. also pointed out several issues preventing the city from reaching its potential, including the ability to work well together. Negative relationships among councillors can hurt staff morale and the effectiveness of oversight and decision making. There is a degree of tension among council members that concern other officials at city hall, the report says. It also reveals other issues like a lack of common understanding among councillors about what their responsibilities are and how they can carry them out. There is no clear alignment for a strategic direction despite a new strategic plan, and an inconsistent understanding of what in camera meetings should be used for. Recommendations span from a code of conduct for council to a review of the use of in camera meetings, and written guidelines for appropriate levels of interaction with staff members. “Most of these senior staff we interact with and most of council ... agree we are not performing as best we can and I think these recommendations sort of points that out,” Greves said, adding that the report recommendations are “dead on right.” “I know we have to start getting our nose to the grindstone and start going by the rules and regulations, procedural bylaws and the community plan. We can do a lot better.” Coun. Bill McKay, who sits on the governance board, hopes the city can rebuild trust with the community through the governance review and that council gains a greater understanding and respect for each other’s roles. “Council itself needs to understand the mayor is CEO. He’s the top dog. And the mayor needs to take that role seriously and step up to the plate and be that top dog,” he said. The governance committee has already held an in camera meeting to review its internal culture but will look at the recommendations at a public meeting in early September.

A cash-strapped summer petting farm has shut down early after being targeted twice by thieves. The supervisor of the Beban 4H Barnyard shuttered the agricultural program on Monday, nearly three weeks early, after livestock was reportedly stolen in a second heist. Ducks, rabbits, wheelbarrows and feed were taken from the barnyard over the weekend. In early July, five rabbits went missing. Linda Barnett, barnyard supervisor for the Cedar 4H Club, said she felt “sick to her stomach” by the recent theft and couldn’t allow the barn to remain open in good conscience. The animals are on loan from area farms. It has made for a disappointing swan song for the organization, which expected this to be its last full season. Funding shortfalls have made the future of the 4H barnyard uncertain. “We can barely cover our wages and to have ... no security at the barn. I just couldn’t take the risk of having $6,000 in animals sitting there,” Barnett said. “I am disappointed for the community to lose what I think is an educational tool and a fun activity for little ones.” Sabrina Meyer, 19, is also upset by the theft and barnyard closure. She has been loaning her rabbits to the agricultural program for close to four years and says this is the first time she’s ever thought twice about having her animals on display. This summer 10 of her rabbits were taken. “It is shocking and appalling someone would do this,” she said. “The barnyard is a non-profit education program for the public.” Bunnies are also a dime a dozen in Nanaimo, she adds. The 4H barnyard will reopen temporarily during the Vancouver Island Exhibition, but organizers say they are unsure of the program’s future. The Cedar 4H Club has been grappling with financial challenges for the past year after the City of Nanaimo announced a plan to wean it off $5,000 in grant funding. The organization had already reported being hard hit by a drop in provincial gaming grant. Barnett said 4H members will be looking at options for the petting farm over the winter.

Police seeing fewer marijuana possession cases By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Marijuana possession cases still account for 60 per cent of drug violation reports to police in B.C., but the number of cases declined 10 per cent in

2012, according to new figures from Statistics Canada. There were 25,432 police-reported incidents of drug offences in B.C. last year, a 7.4 per cent decline from 2011. Marijuana trafficking cases

declined more than 20 per cent to 1,006 incidents, and importation and exportation of marijuana declined by 40 per cent. Marijuana growing cases declined 4.6 per cent, following a 28.6 per cent drop in 2011.

Heroin possession cases jumped more than 30 per cent to 500, and heroin trafficking cases rose 37 per cent to 224 incidents in 2012. There were 653 reported cases of possession of methamphetamine (crystal meth), a 20 per

cent increase over 2011, and 110 per cent more than 2009. The decline in B.C. marijuana cases comes as licensed medical marijuana production increases across North America. Colorado and

Government beginning review of liquor policy By Tom FleTcher Black Press

A glass of wine at the spa? A craft beer at the farmers’ market? These suggestions are part of a review of liquor policy promised by the B.C. government in its February throne speech and rolled out Wednesday. Richmond MLA John Yap has been assigned to examine regulations that unnecessarily restrict business, making recommendations to the provincial cabinet by November. One proposal is allowing under-aged children to have lunch at a pub with their parents during the day, as they can do in a licensed restaurant. As well as considering licences for farmers’ markets and spas, the review is to look at why it takes up to a year to issue a licence to a business. Letters are going out to 10,000 licence holders and rural liquor agency stores looking for feedback, and a website for public comments is to be added in September. Don’t expect a price break, however. The terms of the review include ensuring that the $1 billion annual government revenue from liquor sales and sales tax is maintained or increased. The review will not look at privatization of liquor distribution, a controversial sug-

gestion the government backed away from last year. Recent reforms in B.C. have included allowing people to bring their own wine to a restaurant and removing restrictions on buying wine from

another province for personal use. B.C. has yet to convince Ontario and other provinces to lift their protectionist wine rules. On the enforcement side, last year B.C. increased its fine

Nanaimo man badly injured in motorcycle crash in Saanich A Nanaimo man was hurt in a serious crash in Saanich. A 71-year-old is in critical condition after his motorcycle clipped a car that turned across his path on McKenzie Avenue on Tuesday morning.

Saanich police say the motorcycle was headed westbound on McKenzie Avenue toward the Trans-Canada Highway when it collided with an eastbound 2008 Toyota Yaris attempting to turn left onto Burnside Road West.

The 1995 Harley motorcycle struck the Toyota’s rear passenger side and threw the driver onto the road. He sustained serious injuries. Police ticketed an 87-year-old Saanich man for failing to yield

on a left turn. He was shaken but not injured in the collision. From 11:30 a.m., McKenzie Avenue’s westbound lanes were closed for about four hours as the collision reconstruction team investigated the incident.

VIHA names new chief executive WEEK: Ad# 40689

Dr. Brendan Carr has been named as the new president and CEO for the Vancouver Island Health Authority. “The demands and challenges that face all public sector organizations, specifically health care, require the skill and talents of a seasoned leader,” said Don Hubbard, board chairman. “I have full confidence that Dr. Carr possesses the experience and personal suitability that will allow our organization to ensure that the health and care needs of citizens and the fiscal health or our organization are met now and well into the future.” Carr has been serving as acting CEO since former president and CEO Howard Waldner retired in May, and will assume this new role immediately. Carr joined Vancouver Island Health Authority last year as executive vicepresident and chief medical officer. Prior to joining the health authority, Carr served as vice-president of medicine with the Capital District Health Authority in Halifax and as an assistant professor with Dalhousie University. Carr holds a doctorate in medicine and a master’s degree in business administration. He is an emergency room physician and advocate for transformation in health care. “I sincerely appreciate the board’s confidence in my abilities to do the job,” Carr said. “Improving the quality of care and examining how we can better integrate care across the health system is a top priority as we move forward.” As Vancouver Island’s largest employer, Vancouver Island Health Authority serves a population of more than 760,000 citizens living in both urban and rural settings, employs 18,000 staff, operates 153 health facilities and manages an operating budget of $1.9 billion.

City staff calls for more time to discuss Colliery dams fate

required as part of talks with the SFN, according to Ted Swabey, general manager of community safety and development. Council debated the recommendation last night after the press deadline for today’s paper. But Mayor John Ruttan told the News Bulletin Wednesday morning that he expected city officials would opt to support their staff’s opinion. A 30-day consultation with the SFN has precluded any reasonable chance of removing the dams this season anyway, he said. “I would have liked in many ways to continue on and get the work done, at least reduce the risk and if the dams were taken out ... eliminate [the] risk,” Ruttan said. “Now it looks like it’s not available to us because of timing.” Debate over the fate of the century-old Colliery dams has been ongoing since last year, when the B.C. Dam Safety Branch notified the city that its lower and middle dams pose a public safety hazard. Nanaimo city officials decided in May to move

Cliff Hobbis, 93, of Nanaimo, has fond memories and this photo from the days he was a member of the RCMP Musical Ride team back in the 1950s. He was thrilled to share some of his stories with the officer in charge of this year’s Musical Ride team when they performed in Nanoose Bay Aug. 3.

Hobbis recognized by current RCMP officers in Musical Ride u From /1 “We got to travel all over the country and in the United States,” Hobbis said. The former RCMP officer proudly showed a picture of himself in his scarlet uniform taken at one of his many performances over 40 years ago. He also carried a photo of his father who was a member of the North West Mounted Police. It was the early members of the North West Mounted Police who developed the Musical Ride as a way to display their riding ability and entertain themselves and the community. The Musical Ride has been performing for Canadians since 1887 and over the years its popularity has grown, becoming a world-renowned attraction. Hobbis brought along his wife, Mary, and both were beaming with pride when Supt. Marty Chesser, the Officer-in-Charge of the Musical Ride, announced to the packed auditorium that he was honoured to have met Hobbis that day. Chesser, perched in the centre of the riding ring on Piper, a 16-year-old gelding, had Hobbis stand up and be recognized for his contribution and service to the RCMP. Hobbis said he couldn’t believe it.

It took me two days to settle down after that, I was so excited. I was like a little kid.

“It took me two days to settle down after that, I was so excited. I was like a little kid.” Hobbis said he met Chesser by chance when he was checking out an RCMP display prior to the show. “I was over by the booth where they had badges and that’s where I showed him a picture of me and the ride and that’s how it all started,” he said. There will be more excitement next month for Hobbis. He and his wife will celebrate 72 years of marriage on Sept. 13. He said the secret to a long marriage is good communication. The next stops on Vancouver Island for the Musical Ride are Campbell River Aug. 10-11, Comox Aug. 13-14, Duncan Aug. 16, and Saanich Aug. 17-18. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo city staff called for more time to research lower-standard dam designs and consult with the Snuneymuxw First Nation during an open meeting Wednesday. City staff members recommended council nix tenders for the removal the middle and lower Colliery dams and revive a short-term risk mitigation plan while they continue discussions with Snuneymuxw. City officials report they’ve not yet completed a review of the Colliery dams inundation study nor wrapped up a 30-day dialogue with Snuneymuxw First Nation on mitigation options. The consultation was anticipated to end today (Aug. 8). The issues surrounding the dams are complex and it would take much longer than the August expiry date to “exhaust all possible options and considerations”

ahead on demolishing the structures and build new dams sometime next year. The process was put on hold, however, after Snuneymuxw Chief Douglas White III called for better engagement on all potential mitigation measures. The city had planned to rebuild the dams to the highest possible design standards when the B.C. Dam Safety Board only required the dams not fail catastrophically during a major quake, White said, adding that he believes alternative options, like lower standard designs, could yield significant cost changes. A report from the facilitator involved in the 30-day consultation was anticipated to be released prior to the Wednesday meeting. Updates on the decision will appear on the News Bulletin’s website at www. nanaimobulletin.com. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Under the new adjudication service, the city can now deal with up to 18 bylaw issues for $400. The recent half-day adjudication tallied $200. “It is just a better system of administering ...

Resolving bylaw disputes is already proving faster and cheaper under Nanaimo’s new adjudication service, said Randy Churchill, city bylaw services manager. Four ticket holders challenged fines at the city’s inaugural adjudication hearing last week. While the process has only been used once, Churchill said it is already living up to expectations to reduce city costs and pressure on the courts.

whelmed court resources. City officials believed the adjudicator would better handle the uptick in parking disputes anticipated once parking enforcement was pulled in-house. Under the new system people can wait close to six weeks for their challenge to be heard, compared to up to nine months in the courts. The city charges $25 for administration fees to those who lose the dispute, which Churchill expects will eventually cut down on the number of “frivolous” complaints and adjudication hearings held each year. news@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Small steps to labour peace When 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 reelected 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 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. A more open bargaining process between both sides is a step in the right direction to hopefully longterm labour peace.

Assessment Office. Whether the review of that coal mine is federal, provincial or combined, it requires extensive consultation with affected parties. That’s great, but all that goodwill could evaporate quickly if a coal mine ends up getting a permit despite Tahltan objections. Donaldson highlighted another problem. Last year the government signed a reconciliation agreement with the Gitanyow First Nation near Terrace, one of many communities struggling to get through the B.C. treaty negotiation process. 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 landuse 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 value of their hard-won 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. u Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Keep shores free of others’ garbage To the Editor,

I’ve recently been made aware that Nanaimo is being targeted as a potential site for a waste-toenergy incinerator accommodating Metro Vancouver’s surplus garbage. I am strongly opposed to this garbage incineration site. Not only does this plan run contrary to the ecological goals of Vancouver Island communities, but it presents an unnecessary risk to our coastlines from garbage moving through the Georgia Strait. Metro Vancouver does not conform to the standards for waste diversion set by the Regional District of Nanaimo, and it is not equitable to local residents if this garbage is allowed to be incinerated inregion. This incineration project has already been opposed in Powell River and the Fraser Valley, so I’m hopeful that Nanaimo city council will stand against pressures from Metro Vancouver to allow development. With potential sites being made public in November, city

cities have more voters than smaller ones that is unlikely. If this incinerator is so benign why not build it in Vancouver? If we can’t stop Vancouver from offloading their garbage on Nanaimo what is stopping other municipalities from turning us into the garbage capital of B.C.? No doubt, with economies of scale,

Why does Nanaimo have to accept garbage from another municipality? The provincial government should pass regulations that all municipalities have to look after their own garbage within their own boundaries, but since large

HEAD EXAM on the house!

Job prospects the problem for men, not sexism Re: Either gender can lead, innovate, Letters, July 30. In Ms. Lehmer’s rebuttal to my letter, she did not seem to understand my main point in my concern about there being too much emphasis on encouraging young men to enter into resource exploitation industries. Encouraging young men to go up north to work for the oil, gas and mining corporations instead of thinking about going to university is my concern because it is short term. Work is good, but our society needs to begin the paradigm shift and begin

to meet all our needs within our own region instead of being in bondage to multinational corporations. Our national debt soars no matter how much we exploit the Earth and sell our country and we need to think differently. I think we could create a society without the need for money and we would live more like a community. We would trade real goods, share the land without foreign ownership, and the greatest aspiration would be for young people to have the opportunity to find their true love.

Personal reasons to ride Family members battling cancer motivate Saanich police Tour riders Kyle Slavin News staff

E

veryone has their own personal reasons for riding in the Tour de Rock. All three of the Saanich Police Department’s members have witnessed loved ones fight cancer, and all three have felt the pain of losing loved ones to the disease. For Const. Doug Franklin, he lost a grandfather, two aunts and an uncle on his mother’s side. For Const. Lisa Bruschetta, she lost a grandmother to complications from throat cancer. Her mother was also twice diagnosed with cancer – and beat it both times, and her close friend just recently completed treatment and is now in remission. And for civilian employee Kevin Nunn, a British expat, he lost his father to lung and liver cancer hours before he was to get on a flight back to England to be with his dad. “It’s affected everyone, directly or indirectly. Given the opportunity to make a difference monetarily or emotionally or physically, I had to jump at the chance,” Franklin said, explaining his motivation to ride. The Saanich bicycle patrol cop has three kids, and says meeting families going through the emotions that come with having a child with cancer has put his life into perspective. “I thank my lucky stars because

as a special guest rider has been lifechanging. Visiting Camp Goodtimes in July, the camp for kids who’ve been diagnosed with cancer, reaffirmed to him just how good a cause he’s fighting for. “Going to Camp Goodtimes and seeing children who are going through cancer who actually don’t realize it; they’ve forgotten that they are (going through cancer) because they’re having so much fun being a child,” he said. This year’s Tour de Rock team is made up of 22 police officers, media riders and special guests. The team will cycle nearly 1,100 kilometres from Port Alice to Victoria Sept. 21 to Oct. 4 raising money for pediatric cancer research and support programs like Camp Goodtimes. All three Saanich riders say their experiences up to this point in their lives – as parents, as police officers, Arnold Lim/News staff Saanich police officers Const. Doug Franklin, left, and Const. Lisa as former military men (both Franklin Bruschetta, joined by Saanich police quartermaster Kevin Nunn, are and Nunn) – haven’t prepared them for the emotions they’ll feel on Tour. part of this year’s Tour de Rock squad. “I think that the riding is honestly going to be our easy part. I think “I want to give families the same I’m not burdened by the demands of meeting these children and families level of support I’ve received. Being having to care for one of my kids – – their stories, that’s where we’re in hospitals, being in cancer clinics who are all thankfully healthy. This is going to need to prepare ourselves,” and seeing how well they’ve taken my way to give back,” he said. Bruschetta said. “I’m a very care of my loved ones, I believe it’s Bruschetta, a mother of two, isn’t emotional person, so that’s going to a mirror image of what the Canadian as lucky when it comes to the health involve keeping my focus positive Cancer Society is doing for the of her children.

Summer brings demands on time

For some of us, summer means more leisure and vacation time. But when you’re juggling work, parenting and elder-care responsibilities, the season of vacation and warm weather can bring increased demands on your time. It’s important to find strategies to help balance work and family priorities, and to find time for yourself. A little planning can go a long way in making summer easier for everyone.

Grilling safely helps avoid burns People on Vancouver Island use their barbecues all year round, but grilling season really heats up in the summer. Burns from the barbecue are the most common injury. Keep children and pets well away. Before lighting the barbe-

cue, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Inspect the barbecue for cracks in hoses, wear, major rusting, loose connections or leaks. Use your barbecue in a well-ventilated area, away from windows, air intakes and other flammables.

Quickfacts FRINGETASTIC THEATRE FESTIVAL runs Aug. 13 to 25. Performances are at the Nanaimo Museum and the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. This year there are 10 shows and one workshop. The Fringe Hub is being hosted by The Vault. For more information or to purchase tickets please go to www.fringetastic.com. For a description of the shows please see page 25.

A fringe festival is about bringing people together, sharing things and creating a dialogue.

he footsteps Abraham was following stop. Now stranded alone in the minefield he wonders what direction to go. He’s trapped. The feeling of no escape starts to gnaw at his mind and repressed feelings from his past begin to resurface. For years he’s hidden who he is. He’s repressed his sexuality and feelings of unrequited love for a childhood friend and the love of a fellow soldier come to life in his mind. Abraham is a character from the play written by Molly Noonan and one of 10 performances being shown as part of Nanaimo’s Fringe Theatre Festival, Aug. 13-25. The idea for Noonan’s play, called Footsteps, began six years ago while she was watching an episode of M*A*S*H. During the episode a person found their way out of a minefield by following a set of footprints. It made Noonan wonder what would happen if the footsteps stopped. She said feelings of being trapped is often how some people feel about their sexuality. She said many people feel like they are not able to talk about it to their friends and family. “I’ve seen the pain it causes,” she said. During the play people meet Abraham, played by Taylor Lewis, and relive moments in his life through flashbacks. This year the Fringe Festival partnered with Crimson Coast Dance to highlight the organizations Infringing Dance Festival. Chelsee Damon, festival producer, said a fringe festival belongs to the community and it becomes what the community wants. She said when people become engaged and participate in activities, such as the ones hosted at the Fringe Hub, it enhances the experience. The Fringe Hub is being hosted at The Vault this year and people are encouraged to hang out before and after shows meet the actors and audience members to share their experiences. “Fringe Festival is about bringing people together, sharing things and creating a dialogue and letting people become engaged,” said Damon. This year’s Fringe Festival has eight theatre performances, two dance performances and one workshop, presented by Crimson Coast Dance Society. Fringe shows are decided by a lottery draw to ensure their is no bias or censorship. For more information about the Nanaimo Fringe Festival please go to http://fringetastic.com.

Arctic expedition explored at museum The Canadian Arctic Expedition of 1913-18 was one of the most significant scientific journeys into Canada’s Arctic. The mission mapped tracks of land in the Arctic that were never seen before and led to the discovery of four major islands that were eventually added to Canada’s territory. During the mission 17 people on the expedition lost their lives. The story of the explorers and their scientific discoveries is the subject of a new exhibit being displayed at the Nanaimo Museum. Expedition Arctic, was created by the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Canadian Museum of Nature and is at the Nanaimo Museum Aug. 15 to Nov. 7. “This is a timely exhibit. Climate change, Arctic sovereignty and First Nations issues are very important to Canadians today,” said Aimee Greena w a y, N a n a i m o Museum program coordinator.

The stories of expedition members are woven throughout the exhibit. “Visitors take on the role of a crew member when they enter the exhibit,” said Greenaway. “They adopt the

explorer’s persona to see the expedition through that person’s eyes and find out if they were on of the 17 people that tragically died before the journey was over.” The Junior Arche-

ologists kids program runs Thursdays, 1-3 p.m. Children will learn about archeology and First Nations History. For more information please call 250753-1821.

Beefs & bouquets BOUQUET Of multicoloured roses to a very nice lady, Mrs. Marie King, and to doctors and physiotherapists Mr. Allan, Mrs. Collen, Johana, Diane and to nice nurses at Unit Cedar at Dufferin Place. BEEF To the dad who was at the ice cream store. You not only embarrassed your child but you also physically and emotionally abused your child in public. If you do this in public I wonder what happens at home. BOUQUET To my parents John and Mary: you came to a foreign country with five kids. You left your family and friends and a place you called home for most of your life. But you left it for us to give us a better life. You gave up so much for all of us. You are the best parents anyone could ask for. You are always there when needed. I try to raise my kids the same way you raised all of us. I only hope I can do as good a job as you did. BEEF To Nanaimo buses and transit. Why do you get rid of the school-time buses during summer? There are more kids out, tourists and day camps. BOUQUET To the young man who stopped on the shore to call out to me sitting on a rocky outcrop surrounded by water. He kindly and considerately pointed out that if I sat there much longer I would be swimming back to shore rather than rock hopping as the tide was coming in. BEEF To the seniors’ facility that has decided to buy new furniture that was really not needed. You should improve your meal choices and quantity instead. BOUQUET To the Nanaimo Timbermen midget C team for winning the silver medal at the B.C. Lacrosse Association championships. Thank you to all the coaches, parents and especially the boys for making this an outstanding lacrosse season; what a great way to end the year. BEEF To the thieves on Quennell Lake. Karma will eventually get you.

BOUQUET A high five to the older gentleman who walks his dog to the stop sign every day and picks up his dog’s “business.” BEEF To whoever decided to place a toilet in front of the once-beautiful Mon Petit Choux outdoor patio adjoining the plaza so we can inhale urine and listen to the attendant sounds while eating. BOUQUET To the lovely hairstylist at First Choice on Bowen Road, for doing such a great job on my daughter’s first-ever haircut. My daughter had so much fun, she talked about it for days. BEEF To the people who are holding up the progress on the passenger train for the Island. One of the reasons I moved to Nanaimo was because it had a passenger train. I am a train lover. How come freight trains still ride the rails, many of them with huge amounts of cargo? BOUQUET To the City of Nanaimo parks department for its speedy repairs on bridge No. 4 at Westwood Lake. Thank you for preventing an injury. It is great to see my tax dollars working for me. BEEF To the couple who reported finding some cash outside the grocery store. You said you would return to see if anyone claimed it. I went to the customer service desk minutes after you left. I waited 30 minutes for your return. You never did. I left a call number – sad you couldn’t have. BOUQUET To Laird Wheaton body shop for the excellent service replacing my windshield. It was a nice touch having the car washed and polished. BEEF Shocking how expensive that new loo at Diana Krall Plaza cost. Putting it across from an outdoor bakery patio would take my appetite away.

sacrifice – a true friend of the river.

BEEF To the man who bear maced my dogs four times up the mountain. I hope you understand what bear mace is for. It is not to be cruel to domesticated pets, it is for protection. I told you my dogs were friendly and you continued to mace them. BOUQUET To the couple who let me know that my husband’s keys had fallen off the roof of my car. He found them. Thank you so much. Hope you enjoyed your trip. BEEF To City of Nanaimo for not putting a two-hour limit on street parking around Nanaimo Regional General Hospital to prohibit hospital employees from using the street parking for free all day. NRGH employees have their own dedicated parking lot. BOUQUET To the Good Samaritan that reported the hit and run last month in the movie theatre parking lot. Much appreciated that you took the time to help.

social butterfly giveaway

BEEF To the thieves who have broken into the barn at Beban Park twice to steal rabbits being cared for by the 4H Club. The 4H Club is now considering closing the barn until the VIEX because the animals in their care are unsafe. They’ve now had to spend a great deal of money securing the barn from further theft. BOUQUET To the ladies in the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 256 Wednesday morning coffee group for helping me through a special time in my life. It was a wake-up call. BEEF For all those people who leave the house to jog, walk, go to the gym, go running or to the pool to swim with no ID on them. Why not take care to avoid becoming the next John/Jane Doe? Taking a driver’s licence or a mailing label from the scores that charities send could save the unknown. BOUQUET To Judy and her team of gleaners who picked apples from our orchard on Eighth Street and left it in a very tidy condition. We appreciate your respectful and considerate attention. BEEF To the person begging for money on the street corner. Your sign claims you are ‘out of luck’ but your prominent face tattoo indicates that there were choices, not just luck, involved.

DESCHIFFART TWINS to race steeplechase.

V.I. Raiders refocused for home opener BY GREG SAKAKI

n steeplechase, you set the pace, or you get soggy. Or sometimes a bit of both. Two Nanaimo Track and Field Club athletes, in particular, must have steeplechase down to a fine science by now. Twin sisters Marita and Erica DeSchiffart, 17, have qualified to race the event this coming weekend (Aug. 9-11) at the Legion Youth Track and Field Championships in Langley. In a lot of track events, athletes basically go fast and turn left. In a 2,000-metre steeplechase there are some twists – hurdles and a water pit. “You have to be a good hurdler…” said Erica. “And the pit is one of the key things to master. That’s one of the hardest things.” The twins were already competitive distance runners when they took up the steeplechase, and Marita said she’d also run some hurdles. “The water just makes it kind of fun sometimes, too,” she said. “That’s how I got started … just combining some of the events I like together.” The trick to the water trap, said Erica, is to build up speed to leap onto the beam, then

she’ll launch herself with her power leg as far as she can and make a one-foot landing, hardly breaking stride. “You don’t want to land two feet,” said Marita. “You kind of want to do the one foot and go, because otherwise you slow down a lot.” Navigating those waters can be tricky when the race is close and competitors are bunched together. But damp sneakers come

with the territory in steeplechase. “I actually enjoy the water during races because it cools me down most of the time and I don’t usually notice the wetness,” Erica said. As the laps add up, the DeSchiffarts push each other right till the finish line. “It’s always close up until the last 400, and even then, when we finish it’s two or three seconds at the most,”

Marita said. Erica said she and her sister don’t care too much about beating the other. “If one makes the team, it’s a little bit harder, and there’s a little bit of, ‘Aww, you made it and I didn’t’ kind of thing,” she said. Marita just competed last month at the World Youth Championships in the Ukraine, returning home in time to run, jet-lagged, in the qualifier for nationals.

This weekend, both sisters made it to the starting line, and both get to take part in all the splash and dash of steeplechase. TRACK SHORTS …

Two other Nanaimo track club athletes are also competing at Legions – Jason Clare in pole vault and Rachel Jerome in long jump. Thomas and Peter Oxland, who are from Nanaimo, will run at the meet, as well.

There are a lot of things that the V.I. Raiders want to do better, and they’ve got the perfect stage – their home opener. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team takes on the Langley Rams on Saturday (Aug. 10) at Caledonia Park. The Raiders (1-1) played their first two games of 2013 on the road, beating the Westshore Rebels and then losing to the Okanagan Sun. They’re looking forward to home-field advantage. “There’s lots of new faces for the fans to get excited about,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. “We have to give that effort that people in Nanaimo expect from us. Hopefully that motivates the guys and motivates the new guys.” If they need more motivation, they can recall last fall’s B.C. championship game, when the Rams beat the Raiders at Caledonia. Or they can be motivated by last weekend’s 17-3 loss to the Sun. “I think the Raider organization, coaches all the way down to players, everyone will react positively,” said Cole Samson, V.I. linebacker. “And I think definitely this week coming up we’ll play a lot better offensively and defensively.” They will probably have to, to have a chance against a stacked Langley team. Blokker said the Rams are one of the biggest teams he’s seen in the B.C. Football Conference. ◆ See ‘RAMS’ /B3

VANCOUVER SOCCER team looks to instruct, inspire Island youths.

Local soccer players and fans will have a chance to meet the pros in mid-August. The Vancouver Whitecaps FC are visiting Ladysmith on Tuesday (Aug. 13) and Wednesday as part of the Vancouver Island Coast Salish’s Hope and Health soccer event. The event is being co-hosted by the Kwumut Lelum Child and Family Services and the Cowichan Tribes agency. “It’s basically for First Nations players, and they’ll have a host club provide a technical director who does a skills and drills session for the First Nations players, and the Whitecaps players are on the field for that,” said Mike Rankin, president of the MidIsland Soccer Club. “Additionally,

the Whitecaps players provide extra sessions.” This year, those extra sessions are a coaching clinic and a goalkeeper clinic. Whitecaps players and coaching staff will take part in an Evening of Champions opening ceremonies Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Transfer Beach Amphitheatre. This event is free and open to the public. “It’s a real cultural event and soccer event,” said Rankin. “The Evening of Champions ceremony is open to everybody, and it should be fantastic.” On Wednesday the Whitecaps are offering clinics at Forrest Field with Martin Rennie and Brad Knighton. The coaches clinic (from 9:30-11:30 a.m.) and keeper clinic (from 1:30-3:30 p.m.) are also free and open to the general public, but participants are asked to bring a registration form, available online at www.midislesoccer.com.

Rams tough opponent for home opener

Raiders suffer loss, a rare occurrence

u From /B1

Langley doesn’t just have big guys on its offensive line and defensive front seven, it also has size amongst its offensive playmakers. “It’s about field position – you’ve got to make them earn it,” said Matt Blokker. “And when we have our opportunities, we have to capitalize or else it’s going to be a long day.” There are ways the Raiders can gain an edge. Blokker said against any opponent, there are matchups where his team can find an advantage. “Whether we execute or not, that’s a different story,” said the coach. “But it comes down to consistent, fundamental football and we have to worry about doing that.” Cole Samson said he expects his team to come out strong at Caledonia Park, and maybe the Raiders can push their opponents around a little bit on home field. “We want to be the toughest team out there,” he said. “If we’re the toughest team

– and we might not be the most skilled – then we will win.” It’s just Week 3, but already the Raiders have something to prove, and something to play for, and the perfect place to do it. “We’re all looking around to see how we are going to respond and that’s the challenge,” Blokker said.

asked to bring an empty water bottle to the game, because the team’s mascot, Shank Show, is bringing red and black rocks to create noisemakers. For any false start or time-count violation on the other team, Shank Show will toss a t-shirt into the stands.

The V.I. Raiders suffered a rare defeat on the football field. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team was beaten 17-3 by the Okanagan Sun on Saturday at Kelowna’s Apple Bowl stadium. It was the only the seventh regular-season loss in the Raiders’ nine-year history. “We just shot ourselves in the foot over and over again,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. The V.I. team scored its only points in the fourth quarter on a 37-yard field goal by Ryan Jones. V.I. quarterback Jahmari Bennett was 3-for-7 for 35 yards and an interception. Alex Kutra finished with 47 receiving yards on three catches. Taylor Flavel rushed the ball 10 times for 42 yards. Ash Gayat had six tackles, a sack and a forced fumble and Jaxxen Wylie made an interception.

Ball hockey players try for record again

Thirty local youths will attempt to play for 50 straight hours, and if all goes according to plan they will reach that mark Sunday at 5:30 p.m. The same group, Yo u t h S t i c k i n g Together, made an attempt last summer at the breaking the world record for the longest game of street hockey, but stopped

30 yOuTHS want to play for 50 hours.

BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

A bunch of ball hockey players are going to make a break for it. The World’s Longest Indoor Hockey Game, as it’s being billed in advance, begins Fri-

after 50 hours, not quite halfway to its goal of 105 hours. Right after that game ended, a player asked organizer Tali Campbell, “Can we do this again next year?” Dylan Howard, one of the returning players, said last year’s experience was unforgettable, but said the memory will be even better if they can actually break a record.

“I don’t think there was any thought that we wouldn’t try again, and I’m glad that we are,” he said. Campbell said it was someone from Guinness World Records who suggested the Nanaimo group try for the less-daunting indoor record. They’re only allowed 30 players instead of 40, but still, they know 50 hours is doable because they’ve done it. Organizers have a better idea of the medical and nutritional needs, and will have a massage therapist this time around, and scheduled meal times. They’ll tr y to keep it down at bedtime, to let their teammates get their sleep. Out on the

floor, they’ll take it a little easier with their slapshots, and they’ll also attempt to conserve energy. “Last year we thought we were all NHL stars – 105 hours was just a number,” Campbell said. “What we have learned as a team is pacing yourselves, respecting everyone.” They also won’t have to play in the rain, like they did last year. So the conditions all seem to be in place for the guys to take a serious run at the record. “We all know what we’re going to get ourselves into,” Howard said. “So I think we have a far better chance this year than we did last year.” u See ‘RECORD’ /B5

Toyota 4Runner looks, acts more rugged I

SPORT UTILITY vehicle gets new engine, styling.

BY NEIL MOORE he Toyota 4Runner was by no means the first sport utility. But it did usher in a segment that, when you consider its many offshoots, accounts for a huge percentage of vehicles you see on the road today. The 4Runner bowed in mid 1984 as a 1985 model, based on Toyota’s rugged four-wheeldrive compact pickup. It bore little resemblance to the big, leather-lined models you’ll see in showrooms today, having only two front seats and a removable fibreglass top covering the cargo area. As the SUV genre evolved from enclosed pickup trucks into something more refined, Toyota dropped the fibreglass top and gradually made the 4Runner larger, more powerful and more luxurious. The company, to its credit, never gave

up on 4Runner’s offroad ability, but it did bend somewhat to market pressures that turned many SUVs into bloated, posh urban cruisers that spent more time ferrying kids to soccer practice than plying muddy trails and

fording boulder-strewn river beds. Prior to the launch of the current, fifthgeneration model, Toyota took a survey of 4Runner owners that found many believed the vehicle lacked a rugged, purposeful look to

match its true capabilities. So they responded by bucking the trend towards a car-based, unibody design and embraced its truckbased ladder frame. This was clad in a body that was devoid of soft

curves and ellipses, and instead wore pronounced, squared-off fender flares, wide shoulders, masculine grille and overall nononsense styling. The company swapped its 4.7-litre V8 option and standard 3.5-

litre V6 for a stronger yet more fuel efficient 4.0-litre six cylinder that now powers all 4Runners. It delivers 270 horsepower, up 34hp over the previous V6 and 10hp over the available V8, while matching its towing capacity. This is mated to a five-speed automatic with lock-up torque converter. But there’s more to off-road ability than a capable powertrain, and Toyota has equipped this vehicle – more or less depending on model – for the demands of the trail. Standard on every 4Runner, beginning with the base SR5, are part-time 4WD, vehicle stability control, active traction control, downhill assist control, hillstart assist, automatic disconnecting differential, and protector plates for the gas tank and transfer case. Suspension is double wishbone up front and four-link in rear (both with stabilizer bar), and you get a whopping 24 centimetres of ground clearance.

Sport ute thrives off beaten path u From /B6

BMW is set to offer its first all-electric i3 in Europe in November. The automaker is also planning a hybrid version of the vehicle.

BMW electrifies lineup, unveils brand-new i3 The BMW Group debuted the series version of its innovative electric vehicle, the BMW i3, simultaneously in New York, London and Beijing on July 29. The BMW i3 – the automaker’s first pure electric series produced model – has the same sporting genes as other BMWs. The vehicle gets a range of 130 to 160 kilometres. The BMW Group’s experience with test fleets of Mini E and BMW ActiveE cars has shown that that sort of range is sufficient for the vast majority of drivers. The average distance driven daily worldwide, according to BMW, is no more than 64km. If desired, the i3 is

also available with a range extender, which maintains the charge of the lithium-ion battery at a constant level en route, as soon as it falls below a specified value. This is performed by a two-cylinder gasoline engine with 34 horsepower, mounted adjacent to the electric motor above the rear axle. The range extender increases the car’s maximum range in day-to-day driving to around 300 kilometres. The car’s electric drivetrain generates output of 170hp. Its top speed is limited to 150 km/h for efficiency reasons. The BMW i3 will be released in Germany and other European markets in November 2013.

But for serious bush bashing, opt for the Trail Edition. You get some useful tech that includes crawl control (a kind of ‘cruise control’ for off-roading). You can dial in one of five speeds from 1.5-5 km/h, which are held regardless of terrain. All you do is steer while the system looks after throttle and braking. I’ve driven the Trail Edition and found it on par with some of the best off-road vehicles in its class. My recent tester – the seven-passenger Limited – doesn’t get the above-mentioned goodies, but with its full-time 4WD system, limited-slip centre differential, steel skid plates and other standard technologies, it is no slouch off the grid. I found the Limited very easy to live with in the urban jungle. Like all SUVs, it sits high for a commanding view of the road, and its reason-

able turning circle, light steering and strong acceleration made it a pleasurable daily driver. But if you think this sport utility provides the demure ride and hushed cabin common to many soft roaders, think again. The 4Runner is a beast, and I say this in praise. The roar of its V6 powertrain, the

sound of its big tires pawing at the asphalt and the mild bellow of exhaust all remind you that you’re driving a truck – not the family taxi. In snow and sloppy weather, the 4Runner is extremely sure-footed, with its three-mode switch set on 4WD HighFree (front/rear power split dependent on weather and

traction) or better yet on 4WD HighLocked (power split equally between front and rear axles). The 4WD-Low setting is for slow speed maneuvers, such as on the trail or when you’re stuck. Inside, the 4Runner is as well-dressed as any SUV in its class, and despite the abundance of hard plastic, there’s still a nice mix of tex-

tures and materials, with soft-touch in the doors and other areas. The instrument panel and centre console include big buttons, large knobs and easy-toread displays – ideal for aging boomers. There’s loads of knee room in the second row, but precious little in the third if you opt for the seven-seater. There are some SUVs, like the Honda Pilot tested recently on these pages, which can seat fullsize adults. The 4Runner is not one of them. This $800 option, however, will work for kids who don’t mind scrambling into small spaces. The 4Runner may not be the ideal ride for those who never venture off the pavement, but for those who do, it blends an abundance of creature comforts with a level of go-anywhere off-road prowess that’s hard to find in its segment.

Lincoln MKZ used to be stodgy, now it sizzles

I

HYBRID MODEL seems to work in luxury segment. BY NEIL MOORE

When Lincoln reinvented the MKZ midsize sedan in 2013, the company nailed it on at least two counts. No. 1, they deep-sixed its stodgy “grandpa car” look and turned to their dedicated studio for a makeover both inside and out. The new MKZ, with its swoopy lines, modern LED exterior lighting and split wing grille inspired by the 1938 Zephyr, turned plenty of heads at any auto show I attended. No. 2, they priced their hybrid right. Auto journalism has its share of curmudgeons, and depending on the writer, many scoff at hybrid price premiums that can take from a few years to decades to pay off. With the MKZ, there’s no added cost for the hybrid model – it shares the same starting price as its gas-powered sibling. Sure, there’s a trade-off in power (the entry Premiere comes with a 240-horse-

power turbo four rather than a milder non-turbo four with electric motor), but they are similarly well equipped. Our group spent the morning touring the small towns and backroads in and around Collingwood, Ont. The goal was not to test the MKZ hybrid’s driving dynamics up, down and alongside the Blue Mountain; we were tasked with finding out which of us could squeeze the best

fuel economy from this apparently penny-pinching powertrain. I say apparently, because the posted Transport Canada rating of 4.2 litres per 100 kilometres seemed far-fetched for a car this size – even a hybrid. But for the sake of this challenge, I curbed any leadfoot tendencies (and the urge to push our litres/100km well into the double digits – just for a laugh) in favour of trying

to win the title of Lincoln’s hypermiling champ. Central to our success would be the Atkinsoncycle engine, which is efficient, but on its own only produces 141 horsepower. That won’t get your heart racing, but fortunately the accompanying electric motor, with its instantaneous torque, helps offset the power shortage. To keep it charged, because this is not a plug-in hybrid, the MKZ’s

regenerative braking system captures up to 90 percent of energy normally lost during braking, with the system itself helping slow the vehicle. This hybrid system routes power seamlessly to the front wheels using the gas engine, electric motor or a combination of both, depending on terrain and driving style. Drive uphill or lean heavily on the pedal, and both the gas and electric

come into play. Step lightly and with even pressure and – depending on battery charge – you can run on electrons-only for a surprising distance. Especially if you employ gentle, steady braking and strategically use downhill coasting to keep the battery topped up. It became a bit of a game along the way, with the braking coach providing my efficiency score, the display letting me know exactly where power was coming from and when I’m recharging, and the battery monitor keeping tabs on the reserve available for EV driving. By the end of our test, I was surprised to learn that nearly half our driving was electric-only, and although we never hit the lab-tested 4.2L/100km combined, we did score a respectable 5.1L/100 km. The MKZ hybrid is no sports sedan, but does enough in terms of driving dynamics. Where it really shines is in its elegant design and build quality that should please any entry luxury buyer, and in its fuel economy that proves Lincoln is serious about green motoring.

Alfred Kuderle

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

July 22, 1925 - July 25, 2013

In the early hours of Thursday, July 25th our wonderful husband/dad's spirit flew out into a warm flower-scented night with the still, almost full moon lighting the way. With broken hearts we announce the death of our beloved Alfred, in the Palliative Care Unit of Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, due to Lymphoma. He leaves behind his loving wife, Astrid; loving daughter, Chris; and 3 beloved cats who are still searching the house looking for him. He was a true family man, kind, loving, good natured with a great sense of humour, a true gentleman. He had a love for nature, animals, music, and gardening. He enjoyed wildlife carving and his hobby railroad, but his favourite times were spent with his wife of 51 years, Astrid. After retiring from Nortel, after 33 years of service, and then moving from Ontario in 2002, Alfred enjoyed 11 years of the incredible, natural beauty on Vancouver Island. In his lifetime, he visited many countries but considered this island the most beautiful place on earth. We gratefully thank all of our friends here, especially Karin and Don, in Ontario and in Europe for caring so much. We thank the many neighbours who showed so much compassion and support, we are touched by your kindness. We express our sincere gratitude to the caring paramedics/1st responders and the doctors, nurses, staff in Emergency and the 5th Floor, and then for the one day in Palliative Care. Special thanks also to Karen from First Memorial for her compassion and for providing all necessary documents. There will be no service at his request. For those so desiring, donations in his memory can be made to environmental organizations who work to protect and preserve this island. No words can express how much we miss Alfred and our lives will never be the same without him. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.” - From a Headstone in Ireland First Memorial Funeral Services (250)754-8333

Compton, Hume We sadly announce the death of our father, Hume Compton on July 31, 2013 at age 87, 24 days after the death of his wife, Mary. Born in Kelso, Scotland, he served in the Fleet Air Arm of the British Navy. He immigrated to Canada in 1955 with his wife Isobel and their first three children. A typographer, he worked for the Daily Free Press, Evergreen Press and then the Nanaimo Credit Union, where he set up a print shop. A founding member and later president of the Mid-Island Consumers’ Cooperative, he also served as a board member of Federated Cooperatives. He was a writer, storyteller and world traveller. A kind and loving father and husband, he focused on the good in all situations and enjoyed life with warm enthusiasm. Predeceased by his first wife Isobel (1994), he leaves behind 7 children: Jean, Neil, Ian, George, Doug, Leanne and Liz, 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren, as well as the family of his late wife Mary. A memorial gathering for both Hume and Mary will be held on August 11, 3 pm at Blue Heron Park in Yellow Point, followed by a Celebration of Lives at Nanaimo Yacht Club.
