Eye of the Dragon

Dragon boat team Sync or Swim competes in last year’s Victoria Dragon Boat Festival. More than 2,000 paddlers are expected to take part in this year’s event, which kicks off today (Friday) with the eye-dotting ceremony at 1 p.m. and the Lights of Courage lanternlighting ceremony at 9 p.m., both at Ship Point. Races takes place all day Saturday and Sunday in the Inner Harbour. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

City eyes lower speed limits in James Bay Pilot project would likely see speeds reduced to 40 km/h from 50 km/h Daniel Palmer News staff

A City of Victoria resolution to create a 40 km/h default speed limit across B.C. is poised to spark debate at the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention next month in Vancouver. But even if the resolution fails to gain support from a majority of communities at the Sept. 16-20 meetings, at least one Victoria councillor wants to set up a pilot

study with lowered speed limits in James Bay. “We’re hoping to take leadership as the capital city of B.C.,” said acting mayor Shellie Gudgeon. “Several councillors and I are going to put forward a motion (in October) to do a pilot project in a City of Victoria neighbourhood.” The city’s UBCM resolution calls on the provincial government to lower the default speed limit for vehicles by 10 km/h. Currently, any street void of speed limit sig-

nage allows drivers to travel 50 km/h, and posting lowered speed limits can be a big expense to cash-strapped municipalities. “Even laneways can be 50 km/h if it’s not signed,” Gudgeon said. “It’s far too fast for neighbourhoods and families.” James Bay is an ideal neighbourhood to test a 40 km/h speed limit, she said, as it sits on a natural peninsula and would require minimum signage at major entrance points. The idea is supported by the James Bay Neighbourhood Association, said chair Marg Gardiner, who expressed some skepticism

at moving forward. “The city administration have been talking about this for 20 years,” Gardiner said. “But where there’s a will, there’s a way. James Bay is an ideal location for a street pilot study or for a complete neighbourhood study.” Gudgeon said major roadways like Blanshard Street could also be reviewed to potentially increase the speed limit. “I don’t want to raise terror in anyone but there are certain arteries that perhaps could be looked at differently (or) raised to 60 km/h,” she said. Gudgeon noted officials in Ham-

ilton, Ont. have just launched a five-year, 30 km/h pilot study in its North End neighbourhood after residents lobbied council for more than a decade. “It’s an idea whose time has come if you look worldwide,” she said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Move more navy ships to Pacific, says analyst

Sterk steps down as Green Party leader Led Greens to first-seat breakthrough, but couldn’t win own seat despite repeated tries

Daniel Palmer News staff

The Canadian Navy should relocate the majority of its vessels from CFB Halifax to the West Coast, says a national defence analyst. David McDonough, a research fellow at the University of British Columbia, said Canada needs to increase its presence at CFB Esquimalt and in the Pacific Ocean to remain relevant to ever-increasing Asia-Pacific trade and diplomacy. “I’ve basically proposed a 60/40 split in surface warships (frigates, destroyers) favouring the Pacific over the Atlantic, rather than today’s 60/40 split in those ships favouring the Atlantic,” McDonough said. Canada is keen to gain a seat at the Association of Southeast Asian Nations meeting of defence ministers, a key appointment if it hopes to bolster trade, McDonough said. The so-called “Asia-Pacific rebalancing” is already being carried out by the U.S. Navy, which plans to have 60 per cent of its fleet in the Pacific Ocean by 2020. But with a defence budget 33 times larger than Canada’s, the Harper government would do better to focus on creating a renewed defence strategy and asking tough questions about

More Navy ships should be based at CFB Esquimalt than on the East Coast for strategic reasons, says a University of B.C. researcher. the role of Canada’s military in the 21st century, said Jack Harris, NDP defence critic. “We need to define what Canadians want,” Harris said. “We’ve taken the position for quite some time that there really needs to be a rethink of the military positioning for Canada’s defence strategy.” Doing that, said Harris, requires a formal review and stakeholder input from all interested parties. There are five frigates and one

destroyer assigned to CFB Esquimalt, while CFB Halifax is home base for seven frigates and two destroyers. “We’re not talking about the movement of one or two ships influencing world strategy here,” Harris said. “If that’s the perspective from which (McDonough) is coming, you have to wonder what strength to give to the opinions here. It’s speculative.” Defence Ministry officials did not respond to requests for comment. dpalmer@vicnews.com

B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk is quitting politics. Sterk led the party to the breakthrough election of its first B.C. MLA – high profile climate scientist Andrew Weaver – in the Victoria constituency of Oak Bay-Gordon Head. But Weaver's win came thanks to a concentrated campaign – Greens running elsewhere in B.C. didn't come close to victory in the May provincial election. The party got 146,000 votes or 8.1 per cent of the popular vote. Sterk announced her decision Tuesday on Twitter, saying she will resign Aug. 24 at the B.C. Green Party annual general meeting. "Had a good run, at best b4 date, want new adventures," Sterk tweeted. It's not yet clear if Weaver will seek the party's leadership, but Sterk told CKNW she hopes he puts his name forward in the coming leadership race. Sterk, 66, was an Esquimalt councillor before becoming B.C. Green Party leader in 2007, replacing Adriane Carr. She fell short of winning a Green seat in the 2005, 2009 and 2013 provincial elections and the federal election of 2004. Sterk ran this spring against Carole James in the former NDP leader's Victoria-Beacon Hill riding. B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix paid tribute to Sterk's contribution and wished her well. "Our politics is healthier when more British Columbians see their voice reflected in our public debate," Dix said. "Jane's contribution attracted many who might otherwise have forsaken party politics."

A nondescript 1970sera home in the Uptown area of Saanich holds six simple but tidy bedrooms, gardens, offices and a long dinner table. For young men struggling with drug or alcohol addictions in Greater Victoria, it’s the home away from home to regain control of their lives. “There are very few treatment centres for youth (in B.C.). You’ve got to scour the province for a place to take youth and have it not cost a fortune. This program is really needed in the Capital Region. Youth need a place to go,” said Maj. Kathie Chiu, executive director of the Salvation Army’s addictions and rehabilitation centre. Chiu and other Salvation Army staff gave community groups an inside look at the renewed Beacon of Hope House last Friday, which relocated from Vic West to Saanich earlier this year. Up to six young men between 13 and 18 years old can stay at the house at any given time, typically for a month to three months. “It is a very home-like atmosphere,” said Sarah Jenkinson, a counsellor at Hope House. “It’s important for youth in detox not to be institutionalized. This (facility) blends in well with the neighbourhood.” The Vancouver Island Health Authority chips in 25 per cent of the Hope House’s $550,000 annual operating costs, and the Salvation Army funds the remainder for six beds, and 14 counsellors and residential staff members. Youth can find their way to Hope House through referrals from youth detention, probation officers and counsellors, but Chiu said all clients will leave the house with direction in their lives and a new support network. “This is small, intimate and is an opportunity for young men to bond and rebuild relationships and get counselling,” she said. “For many of these

young men, their family atmosphere is not healthy. This give them the opportunity to live like a family. The staff become like parents, aunts and uncles.” Turning around the lives of drug addicted youths, who are often alienated from family, friends and school, requires a full-court press of services and planning. Keltie Manderville, Hope House co-ordinator, said its about giving the youth structure, tempered with flexibility. Morning involves one-on-one and group counselling, and then activities like golf, basketball, swimming or hikes. Staff members are currently offering the clients Japanese and Spanish lessons, and the house has frequent guests to engage the kids through music, writing, poetry and arts. Staff teach them life skills like cooking or resume building or job hunting. “We try to draw out their passions, be it through arts, music, drawing or writing. We draw out what they’re passionate about and build on that,” Manderville said. “Art is huge in the house, although not all youth like art. So it could be bookmaking or bookbinding and we have gardening. It’s about choices and feeling as much apart of a real family as we can.” Hope House started accepting clients in March after a long hunt for a new facility, when their former location was sold. Online classified ad company UsedVictoria (owned by Black Press, which owns Victoria News) helped outfit the house with donated sports gear, TVs and a barbecue. Manderville said they’ve taken the opportunity to revamp and expand Hope House programs, to make broader connections with agencies throughout Greater Victoria and the province. For one, it’s now connected with the South Island Distance Education school to allow the

“It evolves from wanting to stay off drugs and wanting to build relationships with family members, to wanting to get back to school and back to friends, and wanting their life back,” Manderville said. But it’s those community connections that are crucial for postHope House. Ensuring the youth returns to a safe home environment and to school or work is key to keeping them off the trajectory of using drugs or engaging in crime. “Reintegrating the youth into the community is a big challenge,” Chiu said. “We can’t do everything. We have to partner with community agencies.” editor@vicnews.com

The altercation turned violent and the group swarmed the male. Concerned citizens called police. The victim was hospitalized. He suffered a broken orbital bone, fractures to his sinus cavity and a severe laceration to his head. It is believed that many people would have seen or heard the assault, as there were several youths in the park at the time.

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF

Electrical tape puts cyclist in hospital The Victoria Police Department is investigating a prank gone horribly wrong after a Victoria cyclist struck electrical tape and suffered serious injuries. On Aug. 9 around 4:40 a.m., CBC radio producer Sterling Eyford, 34, was headed to work on Kings Road near Prior Street when his bike hit a piece of electrical tape that had been strung across the street. Eyford broke his jaw and teeth and hyper-extended his neck in the collision. “We couldn’t estimate a time frame on when the tape could have been put up, and we’re not attributing it to being a malicious attempt to hurt a cyclist,” said Const. Mike Russell. “It could have been a prank intended for a vehicle gone horribly wrong.” It’s the second such incident in the Capital Region in recent months. In June, Derek Kidd, 26, cut his neck on a gauge wire while mountain biking near Durrance

Lake in Saanich. At the time, Saanich police said there was no evidence the wire was placed to intentionally injure anyone.

Police bust Quadra drug operation

Long reach

The Victoria Police Department arrested seven people and seized nearly $70,000 in cash and drugs on Aug. 9, part of a network of drug dealers police say were operating in the Quadra Village area. Dubbed “Operation Village People,” police completed undercover drug buys and executed a search warrant in the 1800-block of Fern St. and three other search warrants in the 2500block of Wark St. last week. “This project was initiated by some very astute officers who put together this information, based on concerns from the community, and came up with a great project,” said Sgt. Barrie Cockle. Among those charged with drugrelated offences is Kirk Thomas, a 39-year-old Surrey resident, and two Victoria women in their 30s.

OUR VIEW

Speed limits need a rethink T

he debate around the current 50 km/h default speed limit in British Columbia, and by extension, much of North America, will be front and centre at next month’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver. While UBCM won’t release its final list of resolutions until the week before the event, City of Victoria councillors are confident their unanimous suggestion to lower the default speed limit to 40 km/h is an idea worth their counterparts’ time. The “us versus them mentality” that tends to flare up between drivers and alternative transportation advocates is a misguided and nonconstructive approach, particularly when one examines the majority of Capital Region community plans that call for greater emphasis on cycling and pedestrianfriendly greenways. But will lowering the default speed limit on residential streets by 10 km/hr really serve that end? B.C. Coroner Barb McLintock, who also sits on the Capital Regional District’s traffic safety commission, notes there hasn’t been a pedestrian or cyclist fatality on a residential road in the Capital Region for five years, although she admits injury statistics are more difficult to calculate. But safety is only one piece of a complex puzzle that hasn’t been rethought since the 1950s, when speed limits were set primarily to fan the embers of urban sprawl. The CRD traffic commission, comprised of police, public health, school and government officials, plans to issue a public stance on lowering the default speed limit in September just before the UBCM convention. Yet even if the speed limit resolution fails or the province chooses to ignore it, Victoria councillors will likely still push on with a 40 km/h pilot study in James Bay, something the local neighbourhood association has been requesting for nearly two decades. And as Victoria Coun. Shellie Gudgeon points out, speed limits on main transportation arteries like Blanshard Street could even be raised to accommodate vehicles. A 40 km/h default speed limit won’t create a cohesive approach to shared road space overnight, but it is an effective conversation starter to rethink 70 years of unencumbered car-centric infrastructure development. Local groups like the Saanich-based Community Advocates for Reduced Speed are doing well to spur on debate across the Capital Region, whose municipalities should join Victoria in advocating for a lower default speed limit across B.C.

homebuyers paying for amenities providing a public benefit. Certainly the tree canopy falls squarely in the category of a public benefit for all members of the community. The purpose of taxing the general population is to pay for amenities benefiting the public. By charging a disproportionate cost to new homebuyers, fairness is undermined and governments expose themselves and taxpayers to judgments addressing this inequity. Also, when costs are added to the development of housing, they are passed on to the purchaser. This is true of any product manufactured for consumers. Since most consumers take out significant mortgages to pay for homes, the added costs may double over 25 years. So $5,000 may become $10,000 depending on the homebuyer’s interest rate and mortgage term. Saanich’s proposed bylaw is under review and now is the time to achieve fair and equitable treatment for new homebuyers, farmers and residents. The responsibility and cost of protecting the region’s tree canopy should be fairly distributed throughout the community via property taxes, tree-planting incentives and credits and other means. Certainly the discussion presents an opportunity to establish a new approach to financing and protecting public amenities enjoyed by all.  Casey Edge is the executive director of the Victoria Home Builders Association.

Cycling is as diverse a sport as they come Re: Time to lose the ‘isms’ (Sports, Aug. 7) “A race for white guys” is how Travis Paterson described the Tour de France in a recent sports column. I hope that’s not what others see. A quick look at the entry list shows the incredible diversity in the peloton. Thirty-four nations were represented in 2013. Is there another single sporting event that’s even close? Even accepting your very narrow view of human diversity, sporting events are cultural. The person you interviewed remarked: “In Asia and South Asia bikes

are a dominant mode of transportation, yet you’re not seeing many Asians on the tour.” Did it occur to her (or you) that Asians might not want to spend three weeks racing around France? Perhaps their childhood heroes did something else. Next, you emphasize the racism point by calling the Tour de France ‘Eurocentric.’ You know where France is right? “Some sort of long-term plan for equality” is a recommendation made. Here you’ve missed the point of professional sports. Fractions of a second separate winners from losers. We add over-time and then ‘sudden

death.’ Equality isn’t the goal. Professional cycling, hockey, football, badminton, etc., are not ‘inclusive’ clubs. Members are often very similar, culturally and physically. Lots of people over 40 cycle, yet you’re not seeing many on the tour. It seems you should add ageism (to sexism and racism) in this criticism of the Tour de France. The column ends with the hope that queer and transgendered athletes might one day be able to participate. Is that because there aren’t any gay professional cyclists now?   John Taylor Oak Bay

Sewage ‘quick fix’ not the answer Sydney built an opera house on its harbour. Why do we want to put a sewage treatment plant on the entrance to ours? In its rush to secure federal and provincial money, the Capital Regional District is planning to build the region’s sewage treatment plant at McLoughlin Point across from the cruise ship terminal and adjacent to the West Bay Walkway and Marina. Although at first look it would be a fast fix for the city’s sewage problem, is it really the legacy that we want to leave the city and our provincial capital? Will cruise ship passengers be as eager to return? Will odours occasionally escape and waffle over the B.C. legislature and downtown area? Seagull droppings may be a small problem by comparison. Why do we spend so much money and effort to

beautify the Inner Harbour and reclaim the Rock Bay area but so easily give away the amazing potential of McLoughlin Point? Sewage treatment is an important environmental issue that needs to be addressed but is McLoughlin Point the best choice? At a cost of almost $1 billion, a sewage treatment plant has the potential of being either an extreme benefit or an extreme disaster.  A flawed sewage plant would be harder to dispose of than a flawed fast ferry. Do we want to trust the sewage committee’s fast fix? Aren’t there other possible sites? Shouldn’t the citizens who will ultimately pay for the project have a say? Can’t we save both the fish and the harbour? Norma Brown Esquimalt 

Let’s sell our sludge to be treated elsewhere I’m tired of hearing and reading about our sewage treatment debacle for that’s what it surely is. I was going to say we, but it is they: our Capital Regional District leaders who have spent tens of millions of dollars on staff time, studies and land and they still don’t know what to do. Now they want to put the brakes on, but the car isn’t even out of the garage yet. I say we should divert the present outfall to where it can be pumped into barges or ships and sold, as is, to the highest bidder and let someone else treat it. It would save the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars and

bring in a revenue stream. There’s a few problems with treating our sewage locally, apart from the fact that the group we have running the show right now have come up with nothing after six or so years. No one’s going to want it built in their backyard. It will diminish property values, smell or no smell – it’s the psychology of living near a sewage treatment plant. Why build a plant with such a large footprint when land is at such a premium here (possibly future taxgenerating land)? Piping sludge out to Hartland will involve incredible amounts of environmental damage in the

construction. Routing would have to be planned so as to diminish impact and minimize the inconvenience of having construction going on for years. If there should be a spill or leak, better it be on sea than land because that’s where it’s already going. We could use the saved money to repair broken infrastructure and start to deal with ground water run off and see if we could get some of the provincial and federal government funding diverted to that cause, or just keep the savings to keep taxes lower.

Bombings were a political choice Re: Reflections of Japan, 68 years after surrender (Letters, Aug. 9) Two women of South Korean and Japanese descent I heard, recently, said the American interventions in their countries was neither “moral” nor for the “defence of individuals,” as Keith Sketchley asserted. “We have never been told the about the horrors and real purpose for using the A-bombs,” the Japanese woman told us. She spoke at the annual Hiroshima-Nagasaki Commemoration Day in Tillicum-Gorge Park.

There wasn’t even a hint that the United States “saved” Japan from tyranny in 1945. Brig.-Gen. Hugh Hester affirmed this. He noted that top military leaders of Great Britain and the United States are on record as stating there was no military necessity for dropping the bombs. The conclusion is, therefore, inescapable that the decision to drop them was political: a warning to the Soviet Union, wrote Hester in his book Twenty-six Disastrous Years. Larry Wartel Victoria

Painted crosswalks a matter of safety The news, the other day, had a story of a cyclist being hit by a car at the Galloping Goose crossing at McKenzie Avenue.

Critics offer up parking options Continued from Page A3

Harrison said the city should introduce a limited number of cheaper monthly parkade passes for downtown employees, particular those who work for minimum wage. She also urged the city to tighten its rules around municipal and police vehicles making casual use of on-street parking. “The (Victoria Police Department) should have to pay for their space when they’re sitting and having lunch down the street, and not use commercial spaces,” she said, a practice she notices occasionally. “If they’re not conducting business, they shouldn’t have that right.” Guy Le Monnier, manager of the Ambrosia Conference and Event Centre (638 Fisgard St.), said the city could help downtown businesses by allowing drivers to pay past the maximum 90-minute time limit with certain on-street meters. “As long as you pay, what’s the problem? We’re trying to promote people to come downtown, so if they pay the parking, however long they stay, they shouldn’t get a ticket,” Le Monnier said. Existing parking bylaws allow downtown businesses to pay $20 per day for temporary use of an on-street parking space for commercial use, but Le Monnier said he can’t be bothered with the application process in his day-today operations. Council hopes to implement parking changes that could include partial automation of city parkades, advertising in parkades and increased rates by January 2014. Husu said he responds to public inquiries on an ongoing basis at parkingservices@ victoria.ca. “Those comments come directly to me,” he said. “The whole key phrase is making sure people can find a parking space easily. Let’s figure out how we can do that.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

THE BACK TO SCHOOL ABCs Helping your younger student prepare for the first days back at school will encourage a successful start to the school year. By Jennifer Blyth With 23 years in early primary education, Oaklands Elementary Grade 1 teacher Sandy Smith knows a thing or two about helping youngsters adjust to the first days back at school. Working with this younger age group has always been a passion for Smith, mom to two teen boys. “I love the fact that they love learning, and there’s such incredible growth at this stage that’s so rewarding to see,” she says.

The recent change to full-day kindergarten has eased the transition to Grade 1 – kids have already experienced lunch and recess, plus a day full of learning and play. “They’re just coming in more prepared,” she explains. While school is one piece of the education puzzle, much learning happens within the family environment as well, both before kindergarten and throughout the student’s education career. “If the parents read with their kids – reading to them, but also

lessons, and good nutrition – starting the day with a healthy breakfast and refueling during the day with a nutritious lunch, snacks and plenty of water. Communication between parents and teacher is also essential. “I do a newsletter every month and send out emails, so parents know they can contact me with any questions,” Smith says. “I think the parents really appreciate that.” It’s also important that parents know they can speak to the

having kids read to parents – that really is huge,” Smith says. At the same time, incorporating board games, card games and other activities with a little reading and counting can make learning fun, she adds, suggesting card games like 21 and crib that encourage basic math skills. “They’re having fun but they’re also learning.” The building blocks for learning also include enough physical activity, which not only builds motor skills but also helps children focus on their in-class

While middle school brings the expectation of more independence with school work, students still require parents’ support to stay on track. Saanich educator Katherine Tevaarwerk calls on her extensive middle school experience to help families stay organized and on task this school year. Organization: Have children post their timetable to help remind them what they need to bring to school every day (especially helpful for PE strip), Tevaarwerk notes. “It’s also helpful for parents, because the standard ‘How was school today?’ question can become ‘What did you do in science today?’ This may seem like a small difference, but knowing what subject your child has each day helps keep you more involved and your child more accountable. It can also lead to more meaningful discussions about what happened at school.” A homework planner can be another important resource for organization, or the online home work and assignment postings many middle school teachers use. Most use schoolnotes.com, but some create their own blogs. Students and parents can check in daily, or sign up to be notified when the site is updated. Homework: The best way to tackle homework is to start with a routine, especially for those busy with extra-curriular activities, Tevaarwerk says. Try avoiding distractions such as video games and Facebook by scheduling an hour of homework at a set time, every day. “At our house we also have a FIRST... THEN rule: First you do your homework, then you can have time on the computer,” Tevaarwerk says. “On occasions we’ve forgotten this, time just seems to slip by, and then it’s time for bed and the homework still hasn’t been done.”

If students regularly say they have no homework, or you know your child has difficulty staying on top of assignments, contact teachers and ask about overdue assignments. You can even arrange to check in once a month. Projects: Independent and group projects increase substantially in middle school and can be a difficult learning experience for everyone. Best friends may not make the best project partner and while working with someone else can be a valuable experience, it also involves coordination and lots of communication. Most teachers have project criteria sheets, a critical guide outlining what needs to be done, by when, and how many points are assigned to each section. Many students struggle initially in Grade 6 to monitor their own progress on projects, so try to review the criteria together. Tests: Studying for tests can be seem daunting and in most students start by rereading the Cont. on Back to School page 3

It is a ritual to get together with the family that last weekend before school starts. Even though we are all in Victoria, it seems important, especially for the cousins spending time together before they get busy again with school work. – Kelly B., Saanich

BACKtoSCHOOL

PARENTS’ GUIDE

Going the distance: Studying far from home The decision to leave the comfort of home to study in a different city can be one of the biggest decision a student will make, not only financially, but also socially and emotionally. Samantha Postle, a Lambrick Park secondary grad, was entering her third year studying kinesiology at the University of Victoria when she decided to explore a little farther afield. She spent this past year at York University in Toronto. Black Press: What led you to head away to school ? Samantha Postle: I decided to go away to school because I needed a change in my life. I only applied to one school out of high school so I decided I wanted to apply to a bunch of schools to see if I could get in. I finally decided on York because a student who had lived with us was from Toronto and worked at York. BP: Did you have any concerns about going away for school? How did you prepare? SP: I had many concerns about adapting to living away from home in a new city I had never been to. I was very nervous to be going away, especially because I was a third-year student so people in many classes already had their groups. My family made things a lot easier with their support and how they helped me adapt to being on my own. Before I left I talked to a lot of people I knew who had gone away to school and asked about their experiences. Seeing other people’s perspectives helped me find my own ways to get used to all the changes I had in store. BP: What were some of the challenges of being at a new school in a new city? SP: Some of the main challenges involved finding my way around and adapting to the differences between the Toronto lifestyle and the lifestyle I’m used to in Victoria. I had to get my bearings in a very big campus (about four times as big as UVic) and all the different buildings. For me, being the shy person that I am, I think the biggest challenge was meeting new people. I also found it hard being away from my family. I rely so much on my parents and so them not being in the same city whenever I needed them was a huge adjustment for me.

helped in meeting new people. We were all students going through the same ups and downs so it was easy to find common ground and make great friendships. BP: Can you offer a few tips for students who may be nervous about the experience? SP: Mostly I’d suggest just getting out and meeting new people – join intramural teams or clubs or find a job on campus to meet other students who share your interests. Also, don’t forget friends and family back home – they may be far away but they’re still part of your support system and still have a lot of help to give. Overall you just need to keep an open mind. University is one of the most

diverse places young people will go to, with so much to experience and so many new people to meet. BP: What were the rewards of the experience? SP: The biggest reward is the memories and the friendships you make and so many opportunities to try new things. It took me a while to feel comfortable to leave my comfort zone, which is probably my only regret, as I didn’t start meeting new people and trying new things as soon as I got there. But once I did it was lots of fun! Even though I only went for one year I wouldn’t take back my experience for anything; it was a great year full of good memories and lots of fun.

Samantha Postle left the familiarity of home and school to study for a year in Toronto.

BP: How did you address those challenges? SP: Thankfully social media is a great tool for students leaving home. Being able to Skype with my family and feel like I was back at home like nothing had changed really made my transition a whole lot easier. Getting my jobs on campus and work study jobs

textbook and their notes – not usually the most effective or most efficient method for studying. For a big unit test, allocate at least two or three study sessions, Tevaarwerk advises. First, establish what they know and what they don’t know. For social studies, science or language arts, students can create an outline by writing down chapter headings, subheadings and keywords from their text and notes. Then, close the book and write down as many details as possible for each, revealing which areas need the most revision. For math, students can complete an end of unit review from their textbook. Many of the educational publishers also have online sites that accompany the textbooks, often with a section of quizzes and tests for students to check their understanding. Now studying can be more focused. For math, practice areas of difficulty using questions from the textbook, or getting some extra practice from the teacher. “For other subjects, students can use the initial outline they created and write down the missing details from their textbook and notes. Point form only though. It is important to try and determine what are the most important ideas and facts to remember. When the outline is complete, students can quiz themselves again using the headings and keywords, or have others test their knowledge.”

At Island Catholic Schools, we are committed to excellence, and that means helping your child to develop excellence in his or her own way. We are not satisfied with academic achievement alone. We believe in a values-based approach that educates the whole child academically, emotionally and spiritually, and that social responsibility and community provide the solid foundation of a healthy learning environment.

Here in Greater Victoria, back to school time often coincides with back to soccer, back to hockey, back to music, and any number of other activities. To keep everyone in the family where they need to be, when they need to be there, organization is key – here are a few ideas from the B.C. Ministry of Education:

• Create a “launch pad” for items your child needs for school each day — a space for backpacks, lunch kits, shoes, jackets and school assignments. This will help keep your child organized and ease the morning rush. • For parents of primary students, confirm start times for the first day of school and the entire first week as these can vary

“My mom had always taken photos on the first day of school and it’s a tradition I’ve continued with my own boys. It’s fun to see how they change through the years, in a less formal setting than the school photos.” – Jen B., Saanich

they’ll wear and what they’d like for snacks,” Smith suggests. “It lets the kids feel a part of it.” For children nervous about heading back, reassure them about the positive experience to come and that they have the skills to work through any nerves. When they are successful in overcoming the anxiety, be sure to praise their efforts. Smith urges parents not to play into the child’s nervousness by hovering around the classroom or telling the child they can come home early if they don’t feel better. “More often than not the

Ask teens to review their schedules and make an appointment with a school counsellor if they are concerned about possible conflicts or mistakes. • Post your child’s schedule of assignments in a central place and include dates of exams and other activities. • Consider volunteering as a way to be involved in the school community, and to get to know your children’s teachers and other parents.

Good communication can also help identify issues such as hearing or vision concerns that may crop up in either the home or classroom setting. As the first week of school approaches, Smith recommends families start getting back to a regular bedtime and a school-time routine. “For some of the kids who might be anxious, try a little countdown – how many sleeps are left – and start talking about things like what

PARENTS’ GUIDE

Reading tip round-up for primary students By Jennifer Blyth Encouraging a love for reading is an important goal for many parents, yet it doesn’t come as easily for some children as others. Patience is key, while also recognizing that what works for one child might not work for another, explains Tammy Moore, a teacher with the READ Society who offers a few ideas about how to make reading both easier and more fun. It’s important parents are supportive of their young reader’s efforts but not step in too soon, a common mistake.“Reading is a skill like any other skill,” Moore says. “You didn’t score a goal the first time you played hockey, but how did you learn? Practice, practice, practice. Give them time to work it out.” That doesn’t mean reading has to be boring. Try making a game of it – make words out of license plate letters when driving or pick up alphabet dice and come up with a word beginning with the letter rolled. Reading together – both parent reading to the child and child reading to the parent – will also help share learning and the love for a good story, but patience is key. Sounding out words the child doesn’t know is still the most common technique, but some kids need more visual clues, such as looking for the “e” at the end of the word. Where there’s a word like “head” in a sentence, which could also be pronounced “heed”, suggest the reader try it several different ways and consider which makes most sense in context. Many children will struggle “sight words,” such as “and”, “the” and “is”, words that once recognized on-sight, no longer need to be sounded out, allowing readers to focus on the less common words. Several lists are available to help students learn these words, including the Dolch list, which groups the words according to grade for kindergarten to Grade 3, the Fry List, and the Tarasoff list, which presents the words in families. The difference in approach recognizes that kids learn differently, explains Moore, who typically specializes in the Grades 2 to 7 age group. Offering choices can go a long way toward encouraging children to pick up a book to read. “Don’t make them read what you read,” Moore advises. “Take them to a library or a book store and ask them to go find a book that interests them.” If they return saying they couldn’t find anything, send them back with instructions to find a book that

Popular picks for primary and pre-teen readers While girls will typically pick up a wider variety of titles than boys, some particular favourites include: • For younger readers, any Robert Munsch books. • The Whatever After series by Sarah Mlynowski, good for about Grades 3 to 6. Boys can be a little more choosy in the books they’ll tuck into, but some that have proved popular with Moore’s students include: • Bad Kitty, an illustrated series by Nick Bruel, popular with primary readers. • The Zac Power spy series by H.I. Larry, for Grades 2/3. • The Jack Stalwart adventure series by Elizabeth Singer Hunt, for around Grade 4/5. • New on the shelves is a series by TV’s Survivor host Jeff Probst, Stranded, for around the Grade 5/6 level. • Bad Island, a graphic novel by Doug TenNapel. • Diary of a Wimpy Kid, for Grades 4 to 6.

looks interesting, read a sentence, a paragraph or a page so they can tell you what the story is about. Having taken that approach with her own children, now grown, “I actually had to hunt them down because they had settled in and started reading,” Moore says. The trick is to go when you have time – not when you’re rushed – and to make sure it becomes part of the routine, and not something you only do when school is out. “If reading is an enjoyable experience, they can work it in at any time of the day and through the year.” Parents modeling the reading habit is also crucial, as is sharing an interest in what children are reading, asking questions about the story. The READ Society helps children, youth and adults gain literacy and essential skills, including reading, writing and math. For information, call 250-388-7552 or visit www. readsociety.bc.ca

With a survey of Canadian teachers and educators indicating one-third of school-aged children are set to head back to school without the necessary supplies, the eighth annual Staples for Students School Supply Drive offers the community a way to help. Running until  September 9, the goal this year is to raise more than $1.5 million in supplies for local charities, schools and school boards across the country, including the 1UP Victoria Single Parent Resource Centre and local school districts. “Students deserve the opportunity to start the new school year with essential supplies,” says Steve Matyas, president of Staples Cana-

da. “We all want students to do their best at school and later in life, and having basic supplies plays a surprisingly important role in having the confidence to do that. Not having a pen or notebook may seem small, but in reality it often represents a major setback for young students, especially at the start of the school year.” The survey indicated the leading factors contributing to the shortage of essential supplies include: financial strains, cost of supplies, and reliance on schools for supplies, in addition to uncertainty about what to purchase. To make sure customers get exactly what they need, Staples stores are equipped with resources such as lists of basic supplies needed for each grade. The school supply drive has collected more than $6.3 million dollars in supplies and donations since 2005, with all proceeds raised staying within the local community.

Welcome activities at Camosun College, UVic and Royal Roads can help new students settle in.

andmade scarves, sweaters and other woolen garments or items can offer a wonderful experience, either through wearing them or giving them as gifts. Intricate designs, often tribal or traditional in nature; and various colours, alone or in combination, produce a feeling that the item is something special. But few people outside this specific and creative aspect of crafting likely think much about the process that went into making it. “The time that gets put into these things, the hours and hours of work, people sometimes aren’t aware of that,” says Tierre Joline Taylor, a local milliner, or hatmaker. “It’s usually done with so much love.” Taylor is among 50 or so vendors, and members of craft guilds dedicated to knitting, quilting, embroidering and weaving, who will turn St. Ann’s Academy grounds into a sea of colour on Sunday (Aug. 18) for the third annual Fibrations, a celebration of fibre arts. As part of the day’s events, Taylor will

crafts that have been done for many, many years,” she says. “It’s such a fundamental thing, but this is a very real look at that – what does it look like to spin yarn? There’s something that’s very primal about it, but there’s also some-

thing so functional.” Fibrations organizer Ryan Davis, with his partner Stephanie Papik, runs Knotty by Nature, a gathering place for people looking to become more immersed in fibre arts. Sunday’s event, which has attracted people from Vancouver and Seattle, offers a look back in time as well as examples of modern methods of working with natural fibres, he says. “The history of weaving goes back almost to the dawn of time,” he says by example. “We’re going to have a really cool demo of backstrap weaving, which is a more traditional style. People will also see some brand new types of weaving, with computerized programs to create their weaves.” The Jacquard loom, Davis points out, was considered pretty much the first computer, given that it used punched cards, like the first actual computers, to determine the pattern of weave. Fibrations includes a variety of demonstrations including one on needle felting by Heather Thurston, a toonie raffle with locally crafted prizes and the availability of numerous handcrafted items. It runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at St. Ann’s Academy, 835 Humboldt St. For a list of demos or more information visit fibrationsvic.wordpress.com or call 250-412-0198.

Woody gets serious

A

Kind of blue- Cate Blanchett turns in an Oscar-worthy performance approved

in the new, serious Woody Allen film Blue Jasmine, which starts at Cineplex Odeon Victoria today. Supplied photo.

u stralia’s Cate Blanchett (Lord of the Rings, The Aviator) is a great actress, and boy does she have an Oscar-worthy role in Blue Jasmine, the latest film from Woody Allen. She stars as Jasmine, a socialite whose limo lifestyle has imploded since her husband (Alec Baldwin) was jailed for stealing millions. Penniless and emotionally fragile – she’s washing down Xanax with endless Stolle martinis, and talking to herself – Jasmine has retreated from Manhattan to San Francisco to move in with her working class sister, Ginger (Sally Hawkins), and lick her wounds. Abrasive, self-absorbed and clinging to memories of her past, Jasmine does a poor job of trying to reconcile with Ginger and to fit in with her blue collar boyfriend, Chili (Bobby Cannavale). There are shards of dark wit embedded throughout Blue, but this is primarily a drama, and Allen’s bleakest film since 1989’s Crimes and Misdemeanors. He is non-patronizing as he explores the working class milieu of Ginger and her friends, and the

Drop-off: Sat., August 17, 9am - 1pm Black Press Group Office at 818 Broughton Street, Victoria

cast – including Louis C.K., Peter Sarsgaard, and a surprisingly effective Andrew Dice Clay – is uniformly excellent. But this is Blanchett’s film all the way, and her tour de force performance as a brittle woman whose personality is slowly unraveling is a painful revelation. Rating: ★★ ★★

Sci-fi allegory crash-lands South African writer-director Neill Blomkamp delivered a powerful political allegory in his debut film, District 9, where Apartheid was critiqued via a strange sci-fi tale. He still has politics on his mind in his sophomore feature, Elysium, but this portrait of the savage divide between haves and have-nots is so heavy-handed it undermines what could have been a decent film. Blomkamp’s future dystopia is set on a terribly polluted Earth that has become one giant ghetto policed by brutal robocops. The lucky few get to live above it all – literally, as they dwell on an orbiting space colony that has been landscaped

weekend by RobeRt Moyes arts@mondaymag.com to resemble a gated community in Palm Desert. Enter our Everyman hero, Max (Matt Damon), who works in a factory. When an industrial accident gives him a lethal dose of radiation, Max has five days to get to Elysium where his life can be saved. That is the nub of the movie, which has various other subplots that don’t add up to much. Damon is, as always, marvelous. And Alice Braga (City of God) is effective as Max’s sort-of girlfriend. But Jodie Foster delivers a surprisingly one-dimensional portrait of bureaucratic evil as Elysium’s head of Homeland Security, while her thuggish enforcer, Kruger (Sharlito Copley), seems like a knock-off of the Dark Knight Rises Bane: scruffily anti-social and, instead of a voice-muffling device stuck over his mouth, an abrasive South African accent. Full of routine action sequences and lame characterization, this is a disappointment. Rating: ★★½

OPENING

★★★★ BLUE JASMINE -(Odeon) Cate Blanchett is headed for an Oscar nomination for her role as an emotionally fragile woman struggling to recover after her life as a glamorous socialite implodes. Complete with a great cast, this is one of Woody Allen’s best films. Ever. Starts Fri. See review. LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER -(Odeon/Empire Uni 4) Forest Whitaker heads up an amazing cast in a drama about a black butler at the White House whose long tenure there overlapped with many powerful domestic and international political events. Costarring Vanessa Redgrave, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Terrence Howard, James Marsden, Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman. Starts Fri. KICK-ASS 2 -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Westshore) Expect more hardedged laughs and jokey violence in this sequel to the big hit about a teenage girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) who was trained as a vigilante by her father. The costars include Jim Carrey, Morris Chestnut, and John Leguizamo. Starts Fri. JOBS -(Empire 6/Empire Uni 4) Ashton Kutcher stars in a promising portrait of Steve Jobs, the college dropout who started a computer revolution that helped define and beautify the wireless world. Starts Fri. PARANOIA -(Empire 6/SilverCity) Lethal corporate espionage is at the centre of this slick thriller starring Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman, and Australian hunk-du-jour Liam Hemsworth (Hunger Games). Starts Fri. FRUITVALE STATION -(Odeon) There is lots of buzz around this truthbased reenactment of the turbulent last day of a young black man in 2008. Starts Fri.

CONTINUING

CHENNAI EXPRESS -(Empire 6) South India is the setting for this

exuberant, Bollywood-style actioncomedy starring Shah Rukh Khan. ★★★ THE CONJURING -(Caprice) An elite cast including Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, and Lili Taylor star in a clever haunted house chiller about a pair of paranormal investigators who get in over their heads when they confront a powerful entity. This is an old-school spookfest, interested in atmosphere more so than splatter. ★★½ ELYSIUM -(Odeon/Empire Uni 4/SilverCity) Matt Damon and Jodie Foster star in a futuristic sci-fi thriller where the Earth has become a polluted ghetto and the lucky few get to live in luxury on a floating space station orbiting languidly above. Well, that’s about to change. It’s hard to argue with the politics, but this new film by the writer-director of District 9 is too heavy-handed and cliched to take seriously. See review. ★★½ THE HEAT -(SilverCity/ Caprice) In this raucous and sometimes hit-and-miss comedy from Paul Feig (Knocked Up), Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) play odd-couple cops who will have to learn to work together if they are to stand a chance of taking down the drug lord who’s their assigned target. ★★ THE LONE RANGER -(Caprice) More proves to be less, as the classic western TV show from the 1950s that featured a masked lawman and his Native American sidekick gets a predictably bombastic treatment from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. ★★ NOW YOU SEE ME -(Roxy, 9:00) The FBI and Interpol combine forces to battle a clever crew of Las Vegas illusionists who seem to be robbing banks … while simultaneously performing for a casino audience. Despite a great cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, and Jesse Eisenberg, this is a flabby caper film with little magic to it.

★★★½ PACIFIC RIM -(SilverCity/Caprice) Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) helms this Transformersish epic about monsters that attack Earth and are opposed by giant robots controlled by human “pilots.” This is a skillfully directed and highly imaginative tribute to all those schlocky Godzilla movies of old. ★★ PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS -(Empire 6/SilverCity) In this newest addition to the blandly derivative fantasy series that riffs on Greek mythology, the half-human son of Poseidon and his buddies embark on a magical quest to find the Golden Fleece in order to stop an ancient evil from destroying the world. PLANES -(Empire 6/SilverCity/ Westshore) The same people who made Cars have taken to the skies with a similar family-friend animated tale about a crop-dusting plane with dreams of winning a famous aerial race. SMURFS 2 -(SilverCity/Westshore) The blue munchkins are back for more pint-sized adventures, this one involving a sorcerer and a diabolical kidnapping. TURBO -(Caprice) The latest from Dreamworks Animation is a family comedy about an ordinary garden snail who acquires magic powers – and the chance to achieve his dream of winning the Indy 500. With the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Maya Rudolph, and Samuel L. Jackson. ★★★½ THE WAY WAY BACK -(Odeon) A hit at Sundance, this is a funny and touching coming-of-age story about a 14-year-old boy who feels ignored by his mother and pushed around by her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell). Also starring Allison Janney, Toni Collette and Sam Rockwell.

weekend ★★½ WE’RE THE MILLERS -(Odeon/SilverCity/Empire Uni 4) Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston star in a crass comedy about a longtime pot dealer who hires a stripper and two feral teens to pretend to be his middle class family as cover for when he smuggles a massive load of weed across the border from Mexico to the States. Intermittently quite funny, this is a case of talented performers struggling with a secondrate script. ★★★ WOLVERINE -(SilverCity/ Westshore) Hairy-faced and Adamantium-clawed Hugh Jackman travels to Japan to confront the diabolical Silver Samurai, in an entertaining Marvel Comics smackdown that combines X-men flair with martial arts and yakuza elements. Directed by James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 to Yuma). ★★★ WORLD WAR Z -(Empire 6/ Caprice/Roxy, 7:00) Countries topple and armies shatter in the face of a zombie pandemic, as a shaggy-haired Brad Pitt tries to save the world. This is an intense and intelligent movie that uses zombies to embody the more plausible horror of a SARS-like threat to the planet.

The art of downsizing

ISSUE

■ DANIELLE POPE, NEWS STAFF

Downsizing is tricky at the best of times, as Cathy Haynes knows. It takes care, compassion and sometimes comedy. But whether helping parents or grandparents move, Haynes says the trick is to start small, and start today. “Even one drawer sorted is a reason to celebrate,” says Haynes, who runs Downsizing Diva, a professional senior move management franchise in Greater Victoria. “It takes years to accumulate our stuff and, when you begin to downsize early, you remain in control. Don’t wait for a health or financial crisis or a sudden vacancy in a retirement residence. Start sooner and have your life be less about

stuff and clutter and more about the things that really make you feel good.” Haynes, who is a certified professional consultant on aging, says that working with family members can be challenging due to baggage or conflicting ideas, and cautions that strong opinions must be tempered with gentle patience. “Even a simple thing like giving away an outfit that is seldom worn can be an issue – every outfit or gadget we have bought originally held some kind of promise for us,” she says. “To let it go is also to let go of that promise in a way.” Downsizing is often associated with a loss – either of health, a partner, finances

25

or the ability to balance a larger home. One word Haynes’ hears a lot is “overwhelmed.” But there is hope: it may be that the house is manageable after all when it is de-cluttered, she says. “Family members can help sort and shed some of the clutter to create a home that is safer and easier to manage,”

While most seniors have retired from the workforce, a majority want to grow old in their homes and take an active part in society, Turcotte concluded. However, “their desire to remain in their homes is not very realistic unless they have adequate transportation (and) in most residential areas this means having access to a private vehicle.” The Stats Canada analyst suggested that most urban public transportation is not designed with our aging population in mind. “The relatively infrequent use of public transit compared with other means of transportation is possibly attributable to the fact that seniors, like the rest of the population, tend to live in low residential density neighbourhoods (where) public transit is designed primarily to meet the needs of workers (at rush hour periods).” Two things are obvious from this study: seniors are addicted to their vehicles, and overwhelmingly reject public transport as a viable option to driving. How we resolve this conundrum is beyond me. I guess that’s no surprise … I’m a senior hooked on my car and the last place you will find me is on a bus.   ●

Victoria Senior The art of downsizing

The Senior Life

continued from 23

Haynes says. “Adult children and grandchildren should be encouraged to remove any of their stuff that has been stored in their parents’ or grandparents’ garages or attics. It’s tough enough to downsize your own stuff without worrying about what to do with someone else’s stuff.” While Haynes doesn’t force people to get rid of things, she guides them with her simple mantra: Do you use it? Do you need it? Do you love it? “This makes room for the sentimental ‘we just love it!’, but deals with the ‘maybe it will be handy one day’ or ‘I looked great in that outfit in 1993’ type of stuff which we all tend to accumulate but have to say goodbye to,” she says. For those downsizing into a smaller home, Haynes suggests the It takes years to addition of “will it fit?” She also suggests PITCH accumulate our (toss out obvious stuff), stuff and, when PATCH (get honest you begin to about whether you will ever sew that hem), downsize early, PASS ALONG (to family, you remain in friends or sell) and PACK. control.” “Recently in Calgary, a lot of people had just a few hours to get their most important treasures out of the way of flood waters,” Haynes says. “Sometimes, if we imagine what we would save if we had only a few hours – and a man with a truck – and think about the things that are replaceable, it makes it clearer.” ●

Q&A

James Lawler, 88, moved to Victoria 10 years ago but wishes he had come sooner. He moved after an especially bad winter in Orilla, Ont. when, “the snow was up to here, and the temperature was down to there, so that was it.” While in Ontario, he owned and operated a lottery outlet and once sold a million-dollar winner. After moving to Victoria he joined the Monterey Centre and became involved in the Note-ables and has only missed one show since. His hobby has become his passion and he is now a full-time professional artist and teaches at the centre. The highlight of his entertainment career came in July when he placed third in the Senior Star talent contest against experienced performers, which was no small achievement. He now can’t imagine what his next challenge will be, so he keeps looking. “I’ll be back,” he says.

Q A

What is your favourite Oak Bay destination or activity? Why?  Monterey Centre because I love playing the clarinet with the sing-a-long group and rehearsals with the Note-ables. And teaching a wildlife painting course. What words of wisdom have you strived to follow from your parents?

Q

James Lawler has discovered his artistic side in SHARON TIFFIN/NEWS STAFF retirement.

A Q A Q A

Be a good boy and brush your teeth. What’s top of your bucket list?  Just living. To enjoy what’s a pretty good life.

What is your proudest achievement? Two great moments were playing clarinet with the world-class vibraphonist Peter Appleyard on a cruise ship and later meeting my musical idol clarinet man Peter Fountain in New Orleans, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Q A

What are you reading right now? Biographies of Louis Armstrong and Artie Shaw.  ●

Age 70 Margaret Bragg was raised in Victoria but spent her life living up and down the Island. She was happy to move back because she loves the weather and people in Victoria. Before retiring in Victoria she worked in retail at the Boots Drugstore. She volunteers working in the cafeteria at the Monterey Centre and the gift shop at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. Margaret says she does volunteer work for the social life and because it makes her feel useful.  ●

Royal Jubilee Hospital, Volunteer

Linda Hanrahan

Age 73 Carol Buczkowskiis has been a member of the Esquimalt Lions for six years. She joined after spending about seven years tagging along with her husband Joe to help at events and was talked into joining the club – she is very glad she did. “I just love to volunteer, that about says it all. I think, maybe, seeing the smiles and thanks I get – all volunteers get – that means more to me than a plaque or certificate.” She has been a volunteer at Our Place since January 2012 and can be found in the clothing area. When not volunteering, she still finds time to do a little bit of knitting.  ●

If you know someone who is making a difference in your community, please email your comments to editor@vicnews.com

Age 64 When a friend convinced Linda Hanrahan to volunteer at the Royal Jubilee Hospital gift shop she enjoyed it so much she became the president of the RJH Auxiliary. She finds working in the gift shop interesting and gets to meet a lot of people to connect with for at least a few minutes. She joined the Monterey Centre in Oak Bay last year for additional social activity. Volunteering takes a bit of her time but she feels she would be lost without it.  “I highly recommend volunteering for anyone who finds time on their hands and would like to meet lots of different people, they will not be disappointed.”  ●

Emotions ride high for the Tour No better motivation for officers than kids battling cancer Danielle Pope and Kyle Slavin

(Above) Victoria police officers Mike Russell and Marie Bourque, and Oak Bay police reserve officer Aubrey Blackhall (below) are part of the 2013 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team.

Aubrey Blackhall has been pulling for Tour de Rock since he was in high school. Each year from Grades 9 to 12, the Oak Bay High grad raised money and shaved his head to support the cause. Now, the 21-year-old reserve constable with Oak Bay police is getting an opportunity to ride. “I was really nervous going into the selection process, because I knew that, as a reserve constable, maybe I wouldn’t have the kind of standing that other officers would,” says Blackhall, who has been a reserve officer for a year and a half. “But it seems like what they really wanted to see was that your heart was in the right place.” Blackhall’s heart is there. The young rider lost his grandmother to “an ugly, three-year battle with cancer” when she was only 63 – a loss that motivates him on this ride. Victoria police Const. Marie Bourque has also seen the toll a disease can have on loved ones. In 2001, she learned her father was failing from frontal-lobe dementia and would lose most of his motor skills very quickly. “Even though family is No. 1, caregiving is so tough,” says Bourque, 40. “My dad was 60 years old, which is young, but at least he had 60 years. Caregiving for a child – I just couldn’t imagine that, and what you’d have to go through.”

Tour de Rock is a fundraiser that benefits children living with cancer and their families, which helps the riders put things into perspective. “We’re all here for the same reason: we’re all gunning for a cure,” says VicPD Const. Mike Russell. “I’m a huge believer of trying to get the kids to have some sort of normalcy when they go through their treat-

NEW 2 LEVEL

ment. This is about finding a cure for cancer. This is about not losing any more kids to cancer.” Russell, 33, a father of three, says meeting kids who are going through cancer and are the same age as his children takes an emotional toll. “I really want to get to know these kids we’re fighting for, their families, on a more personal level. To get to

know them will add another level of motivation for me,” he says. Tour de Rock has raised almost $18 million for the Canadian Cancer Society since 1998 – money aimed to fund pediatric cancer research and support programs for kids and their families, like Camp Goodtimes. “I get the most gratitude from helping people, and I want this to be the year that cancer ends. Whether or not that happens, I can help a lot of kids get to camp,” Blackhall says. Bourque says she’s riding to support families who have to go through the emotions of seeing their child go through treatment. “What’s not fair is that life has to strike any kids with illness. Kids just want to be kids. They want to move forward and not get stuck in all that,” she says. “They may have struggles, but you can’t see it on their faces. You might get tired (riding), but then you realize the effort you will put in. How could you not? They are your inspiration.” news@mondaymag.com

Smiling, happy children and babies gathered at Victoria General Hospital last week with one thing in common: a hard start to life. Elise Simard spent the first 169 days of her life in hospital after being born at 26 weeks. Now three-and-a-half years old, Elise is still dealing with the impact of her premature birth, but not without improvements. Her mother, Christy, came to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) reunion with good news for the staff who once cared for Elise: her vocal chords, paralyzed since birth, now have movement and she is on the way to having her tracheostomy tube removed. “Having great staff, having the technology and equipment available, it makes the recovery so much faster. It allows you to be a family,” Christy said. “Without the technology, without the staff here, without these people, she wouldn’t have survived.” The 29th Annual NICU Reunion Party is the Vancouver Island Health Authority’s chance to bring together parents and their children with other families who have gone through similar trying circumstances. It’s also a chance for nurses and doctors to see the happy endings to their work.

“It’s better than Christmas for me,” said Jennifer Peters, a registered nurse. “I would give up any holiday of the year for this day. It makes your job so much more important. It shows you, you do actually make a difference; for the sad days this makes up for it tenfold.” With five years in the unit, Peters said she remembers nearly everyone who comes back to the reunions. The premature babies often need help breathing and are unable to feed on their own, problems the unit can tackle. The babies are often kept in incubators and need IVs. Once the babies are healthier and of a certain weight they are able to go home. For many this can take months. Some never make it. “Every little obstacle they beat is just one more step to going home,” Peters said. “You get thrown every hardship that you could possibly imagine, as a new parent, so I think this is the end result, the big finale, where they can come back every year and show us exactly how great they’re doing.” Colleen Robertson’s daughter Faithlyn, 3, looked like the happiest little girl in the world as she followed Daisy, Island Farms’ cow mascot, around the reunion in awe and reverence. But when she was born at 27 weeks her

life was in the hands of the staff of the NICU, as she relied on a breathing machine to live. “It was nothing I’d want anyone to ever have to go through, but they did an amazing job with the circumstances,” said Robertson, a Colwood resident. “They offered us more help than we could take. They were wonderful.” Among the babies and toddlers a 17-year-old girl, about to enter Grade 12 at Claremont secondary school, healthy and happy, may not be noticed, but Rebekah Bolinder is a NICU alum as well. “I was two months early and I was three pounds,” Bolinder said. Her experience of being at the reunion is a bit surreal, Bolinder said. She obviously does not remember her time at VGH, but says she still looks at photographs and videos and reflects on her rocky start to life. “I’m really glad for all the support that I had, and family. My brother would come visit me, my older brother, he was four at the time,” Bolinder said. “It’s just really nice to see how much support I had from everyone. “This is great, coming back and seeing all the little kids who have gone through the same experience as me.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Eagle still flying after 125 ultras Cancer survivor lives life on the trails Travis Paterson News staff

Moe “The Eagle” Beaulieu points to his smart-phone sized belt buckle holding up a pair of high-tech trekking pants. It’s kind of an odd combo, as the style of the buckle is traditionally found mounted on the jeans of a Texas cowboy. Yet it makes perfect sense. “I got this from a 100-mile run in Virginia 19 years ago,” he says. The 68-year-old is also wearing a hat, vest and athletic shirt, all displaying the logo of his vegan food sponsor, Green Foods. But it’s the buckle, or “buckling,” I learn, that is one of the most coveted ultra-marathon awards. “I don’t know if it came from the Western States, which is the original 100-ultra-marathon and used to be a 100mile horse race, or from somewhere else. But some runners used to skip a race if it didn’t have a buckle. They’d seek out the Texas-sized buckle and go race there.” That’s the old days, Beaulieu adds. The sport, in his eyes, has grown as much in the last five years as it did in its first 30 years. Moe The Eagle is known by many in the B.C. and northwest ultra-marathon community. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Beaulieu grew to love the outdoors through hunting with his uncles. He spent most of his adult life between the Okanagan, mainly Penticton, and Victoria. He’s been back in Victoria for three years after spending time here during his 27-year career in sales for radio and television. In the ultra-marathon world,

he’s a legend in the making. On Saturday (Aug. 10) he completed his 125th ultra-marathon, the Arc-Teryx Squamish 50-kilometre (the race has three distances: the 50-miler, 50-km and 23-km). It took him nine hours and 55 minutes, 133rd out of the 160 starters who finished, with 46 more who were unable to finish the race. “It was hotter and more humid than in years past,” Beaulieu says. “I was 40 kilometres in when I knew I had to cool down. I sat in a creek up to my waist and when I got out I went to an aid station and asked them for some ice. I stuck it under my hat.

SPORTS NEWS IN BRIEF Shamrocks sked released for WLA final

The Victoria Shamrocks will host the Langley Thunder tonight (Aug. 16) for Game 2 of the Western Lacrosse Association final, 7:45 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena. Visit vicnews.com for results from Game 1 on Wednesday in Langley. The Shamrocks will also host Games 4 and 6 (if necessary), Friday, Aug. 23 and Thursday, Aug. 29 at the Bear. Langley will host Game 3, Aug. 21 and, if necessary, Games 5 on Aug. 27 and 7 on Sept. 1 at the Langley Events Centre.

You can’t ignore your core temperature. You have to be stubborn out there not to let yourself quit, but you can also end up in a coma from heat exhaustion.” Another pack of ice went into his shorts. The aid station attendant said he’d only seen one other ultra-marathoner do that and it was another elder runner. “You guys are tough,” he told Beaulieu. “I told him I’m not tough, I’m just trying to stay alive!” Did Not Finish is a common label on the results page of ultramarathons and one of Beaulieu’s first DNF came on one of his first 100-milers in 1987, his first

attempt at the same Virginia race where he eventually earned a buckle in 1994. “When I first ran it the horses and runners still did the race at the same time. I was 80 miles in and a horse stepped on my foot. You couldn’t see anything particularly bad but the blood was pooling in my foot. I think that was the last year horses and runners shared the race trail.” Two years ago, Beaulieu faced his biggest setback so far, when he overcame stage four throat cancer. He not only beat it and is nearing 24-months remission, but is starting a support group for cancer patients and survivors with long-distance cyclist Dan Young. “The ultra community is like a family. When you have cancer, you’re kind of on you’re own.

I wanted to start visiting people but I thought, ‘I’m going to get attached and I won’t be able to commit to as many,’ so we’re trying to make it a group. Maybe in a little while down the road the group will exist on its own and we can move on to start another one.” Cancer also prompted Beaulieu to change his diet to strictly vegan, and now a few weeks before his 69th birthday on Sept. 5, says he is recovering faster than he did at 59. “It’s like a high performance race car. You only want to put the best fuel in it. Now I feel even better.” Beaulieu’s son Logan, one of his three kids, was already a vegan and helped convince Moe. Logan has his own story, as he suffered a horrific car accident and was told he might not walk again. At 41, he’s now done 75 ultras. The two plan to run the Javelina 100 km in Arizona at Halloween. The support group’s first meeting is Sept. 16. More information can be found through this story online or by calling 778-265-2086 or emailing cancersurvivalgroup@gmail.com. sports@vicnews.com

The Eagle ■ Beaulieu earned the name Moe the Eagle from a couple of different stories. In the 1970s Beaulieu used to donate money to restoring the eagle population, then depleted. He also had a penchant for finding eagle feathers. ■ In 1996 he organized The Eagle ultra-marathon, a 100miler that finished with a 5,000-foot climb up Apex ski resort in Penticton. It ran again in 1997 and ’98, and from 2004 to 2006.

What a sport KidSport Victoria chair Patti Hunter shows her surprise and Ryan O’Byrne cheers as he presents a $40,156.23 cheque to KidSport at Kirby’s Source for Sports from the 2013 Ryan O’Byrne Charity Camp. The one-week hockey school ran at the Ian Stewart Complex Aug. 5 to 9. “We’re absolutely blown away, we thought it would be $25,000, the same as last year. But this is enough to fund the registration grants of 133 kids,” Hunter said. Travis Paterson/News staff

Oak Bay’s Jack Nyren, who starred with B.C.’s U16 championship team last year, was with B.C.’s U17 team that went undefeated into the plate (consolation) final of the U18 second division, but lost 26-7 to Ontario’s third team.

Greater Victoria had a healthy representation at the Youth Rugby Nationals held in Vancouver last weekend, including a crew of Castaway Wanderers who spurred B.C.’s U16 Gold and Blue teams to gold and bronze, respectively. U16 Gold players Sophie De Goede, at scrum half, and Caroline Crossley, at fullback, helped defeat Ontario 19-0 in the championship final. It’s the first year the nationals had a U16 division for women. Rugby Canada’s female coach of the year Jen Ross led team Gold to an undefeated record. “Our aim was to engage and enhance their love of rugby and for us to set some expectations of fitness and skill level. It was an amazing experience for us all,” Ross said to B.C. Rugby. Crossley led the U16 division with six tries. Five more Castaway Wanderers, Cachelin Hall, Miranda Llewellyn, Alexandria Bos, Adrienne Graham and Imogen White, were named to the U16 Blue roster that finished fourth.

Bob had made repeated tours to California to buy parts for his deuce (1932 Ford) roadster. He lay awake at night designing the car in his mind. He went across the U.S. border to Pyramid Street Rods several times a week to work on his car.

Renault-Nissan sells its 100,000th zero-emission car METROLAND MEDIA CARGUIDE MAGAZINE

The Renault-Nissan Alliance has sold its 100,000th zero-emission car. Electric cars from Renault and Nissan have driven approximately 841 million zeroemission kilometres – enough to circle the earth more than 20,000 times. Together, they represent 53 million litres of oil saved and 124 million kg of CO2 that have not been emitted. Renault-Nissan has sold more zeroemission cars than all other major automakers combined. The very first EV from the Alliance is a Nissan LEAF owned by engineer Olivier Chalouhi in California’s Silicon Valley. He bought the LEAF when it debuted in December 2010.

VICTORIA

The 100,000th customer was American graduate student Allison Howard, who became an owner of Nissan LEAF earlier this month and drives the car to Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, Georgia. More than 71,000 people worldwide have bought Nissan LEAF, the world’s best-selling electric vehicle. LEAF makes up more than half of all global sales of pure electric cars. Nissan LEAF won the 2011 World Car of the Year, European Car of the Year 2011 and Car of the Year Japan 2011-2012 awards. More than 80 per cent of LEAF buyers globally exchange cars from other automakers, making the LEAF one of the industry’s most innovative “conquest vehicles.” The majority of customers say the LEAF, which consumes no petroleum whatsoever, has replaced their conventional

‘14 Ram 1500 achieves best-in-class tow rating The 2014 Ram 1500 is claiming top spot in base V6 gasoline towing capacity at 3,379 kg (7,450 lb). To reach the best-in-class number, Ram powertrain engineers added a more robust parking gear to the classexclusive TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic for a higher capacity rating. “There was more towing capacity in the V6 Ram 1500 but we needed to upgrade the transmission to hold the truck and trailer when parked on steep grades,” said Mike Cairns, Chief Engineer, Ram Truck. “Now that we’re building the

transmissions ourselves, the improvements are included in the new assembly.” Ram has finalized the maximum towing rating for the exclusive Ram 1500 3.0-litre EcoDiesel V6. In a 2WD, two-door, long bed configuration, the new EcoDiesel will also tow up to 4,173 kg (9,200 lb). The new diesel engine approaches much larger displacement V8 towing capability with a small but powerful 3.0-litre V6 and bestin-class fuel efficiency of better than 7.8L/100 km (36 mpg) on the highway.

The latest event to help mark the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911 was held July 28 when 1,208 examples filled the Silverstone race circuit in England.

Porsche 911 parade sets new world record A glittering parade of more than 1,200 Porsche 911s took to the Silverstone Grand Prix circuit in England on July 28 as part of the Silverstone Classic that celebrated the 50th anniversary of the world’s most iconic sportscar. In the spirit of being the biggest and best classic motor racing event in the world, the plan to produce a parade of 911 x 911s was almost immediately exceeded when the celebrations were announced, with registrations building hugely in the months leading up to the event. Records are there to be broken, however, so rather than settling for the initial target, organizers manage to squeeze an incredible 1,208 of the Porsches on to a packed circuit. Mark Porsche, son of 911 designer

Ferdinand ‘Butzi’ Porsche and greatgrandson of the marque’s original founder, Ferdinand Porsche, got proceedings underway and he was joined by a number of the sportscar manufacturer’s most successful racing drivers. Former F1 driver and five-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell MBE drove a 911 as part of the parade and Richard Attwood – winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours for Porsche in 1970 – was also on hand to pilot another 911. Since its launch at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1963, the 911 has been at the heart of the Porsche brand with more than 820,000 having been built in the proceeding five decades – making it the most successful sportscar in the world.

ANNOUNCEMENT Is now your exclusive dealer for Vancouver Island.

From near the bottom, the Canadian-made 2014 Chevrolet Impala has gone to the top position in the Consumer Reports ratings for all sedans. The top raking had been held by either Japanese or European models 20 years.

Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

The Canadian-made 2014 Chevrolet Impala has topped the Consumer Reports for all sedans. The top rating has been held by Japanese and European models for the last 20 years. The Impala has gone from the bottom of its class in Consumer Reports ratings, with a mediocre test score of 63 – too low to be CR Recommended – to an “Excellent” 95 that places it not only at the top of its “large sedan” category, but also among the top-rated vehicles Consumer Reports has tested. Only two vehicles have a higher test score: the Tesla Model S hatchback and the BMW 135i coupe.

Consumer Reports engineers found the Impala rides like a luxury sedan, with a cushy and controlled demeanor, while delivering surprisingly agile handling, capable acceleration and excellent braking. Inside, the spacious cabin sets a new standard for Chevrolet fit and finish, with generally high-quality materials and trim. The backseat is roomy and comfortable, the trunk is huge and controls are refreshingly intuitive and easy to use. Despite its high test score, this Impala is too new for Consumer Reports to have reliability data, so it can’t be recommended. To be recommended, a vehicle must perform well in CR’s battery of tests, have average or better reliability in CR’s annual auto survey, and perform well in government and industry crash tests.
