Soil dump approved, foes armed to appeal Shawnigan: skeptic aghast as province determines watershed treatment safe

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

S

outh Island Aggregate has received the green light from the Ministry of Environment to establish a soil remediation facility within the Shawnigan Lake watershed. But the Shawnigan Residents Association and the Cowichan Valley Regional District both vow to put a stop to it yet by launching appeals. A Ministry of Environment press release indicated a statutory decision-maker, kept independent from the political process, approved the permit application. “The decision-maker looked at the proposed project, including associated environmental concerns and concluded that the proposal adheres to legislation and appropriately manages health and environmental concerns,’’ the release states. SIA is naturally pleased with the decision, allowing treatment and waste soil to be put in a landfill at its Stebbings Road facility. “The issuance of this permit reflects the rigourous environmental and technical assessment that SIA has undertaken over the past two years, demonstrating that waste can be safely treated and landfilled at this location, within the constraints of an engineered, permitted facility,’’ said president Bruce Fraser: Michael Kelly in a statement. politcal correction “We appreciate the feedback and comments received during the past year or so of consultation with the public and other stakeholders, and have incorporated this feedback into our final design and monitoring program.’’ Upon hearing of the decision, the Shawnigan Residents Association quickly announced it’s not done fighting. “We are deeply troubled by this decision,’’ said SRA director Calvin Cook in a media release. “The short and long term impact on our environment and drinking water has the potential to cripple our community. Clearly the best interests of the people of Shawnigan Lake were not the top priority in this case. We will fight this decision.’’ The SRA has retained Robert Anderson and Sean Hern to oppose the permit in front of the Environmental Appeal Board. The CVRD board of directors has also directed an appeal to the board be filed requesting the decision be overturned and a stay in the granting of the permit be issued. more on page 7

Search and rescue members scoured the Cowichan River near Skutz Falls Wednesday at about 4 p.m. for the missing woman from Tuesday’s incident.

Near Skutz Falls: Investigators fear the worst as they probe the Cowichan for woman last seen on rubber raft Ashley Degraaf

earch crews were out in full force yesterday in their second day of scouring the Cowichan River near Skutz Falls for a missing woman involved in an incident Tuesday that left an elderly man dead. “Shortly after 7:30 p.m....RCMP were dispatched to the Cowichan River, east of Skutz Falls, where witnesses had observed a body floating in the water,” stated Sgt. Wes Olsen in a press release. “Officers attended the scene and located the body in the water, near the shoreline. An RCMP diver along with members of the Lake Cowichan Volunteer Fire Department were able to retrieve the body of a deceased

elderly man.” Olsen confirmed the deceased and missing woman are from the Cowichan Valley but indications were they had recently moved here from the Lower Mainland. RCMP weren’t releasing names pending notification of next of kin, but did disclose the deceased was 84, and the missing woman 67. The B.C. Coroners Service is investigating the death, but there are no indications of foul play. “Information from other people in the area indicates the deceased was with a woman earlier in the day. He was seen fishing from the shoreline, and she was in a small inflatable boat on the water nearby,” said Olsen. “An inflatable raft has been located, overturned in the water at the base of the fish ladder.” A 12-hour search of the shoreline and waters was conducted Wednesday. Searchers

included Cowichan Search and Rescue, the RCMP dive team, an RCMP search dog, and an RCMP helicopter. “The chopper was out for a good hour and conducted an extensive search of the area the couple was last seen,” said Olsen. “And there was also an extensive search below the falls, in the area right under the falls, and the chopper also followed the length of the river for quite a ways down.” Witnesses indicated the woman was “small in stature,” which leads the search crews to the possibility the current took her farther down the river than they’d expect. “We strongly believe her to be in the water,” Olsen said. “If someone was on foot, or on water, we’d anticipate they would have seen the helicopter overhead. more on page 4

uncan’s David Knapton, the driver of a pickup truck that collided with a motorhome Aug. 9 outside Smoky Lake, Alberta, has passed away from his injuries, RCMP confirmed. Knapton, who was in his late 60s was one of three people seriously injured when the pickup, which was towing a fifth-wheel trailer, collided

with a motorhome carrying six people on Highway 28. One of the injured is Knapton’s wife Beverly. A family friend confirmed she received serious injuries but is expected to recover. Folks at the Maple Bay Yacht Club expressed their condolences to Knapton’s family. “David and his wife Bev have been active and valued members of the Maple Bay Yacht Club for the past eight years,” reads a message posted on its website. “David will certainly be missed by his friends

at this club. “The executive committee, board of directors, members and staff of MBYC wish to express their sincere condolences to David’s family in this difficult time.” No further information is currently available about a funeral or other arrangements that may be planned. A detachment spokesperson said the Smoky Lake RCMP investigation continues into the collision. Smoky Lake is 120 kilometres northeast of Edmonton.

udge Josiah Wood will either be hearing more constitutional arguments or proceeding with sentencing Sept. 3 in Duncan Provincial Court in the case of Const. David Pompeo, convicted with aggravated assault for shooting Bill Gillespie in 2009. A hearing was held in Colwood Wednesday where the defence, represented by Sarah Conroy in the absence of Ravi Hira, presented a constitutional challenge regarding the Crown’s behaviour on changing sentencing recommendaDavid Pompeo: tions for Pompeo. guilty in shooting The defence said the Crown, now represented in the case by Carmen Rogers, acted inappropriately and therefore breached Pompeo’s right to a fair trial. The Crown said it was not obligated to share anything. Sentencing guidelines between the parties started at six months in jail plus a $15,000 fine, but progressed to two years less a day in jail for Pompeo. Sentencing did not take place July 23 as originally scheduled so, in essence, there was no fault that needed remedy according to the Crown. Crown also argued in the end it’s Judge Wood’s decision anyway and the two parties could only make recommendations. Judge Wood will have to decide if the issue rises to the level of a constitutional challenge. He will be notifying the parties before Sept. 3 of his decision and then will either hear more evidence why the Crown changed its mind or proceed with sentencing. Sept. 18 and 19 appeal dates for Pompeo’s conviction are also looming.

howhemun Elementary School and Parkside Academy Childcare Society have again been awarded an operating grant to run the Smun’eem after school program. It kicks off its sixth year this September. “The program is an invaluable component of what we are trying to do as a school community,” said principal Darrell Wright. “It supports families, supports students and really adds to student’s sense

of belonging in the school. There is a reason that there is a waiting list to get into this program every year – families know how it adds to the success of their child.” In order to apply for funding from RBC Foundation, an evaluation of the program’s success was completed. Teachers and parents observed a positive change in students. Students demonstrated more responsibility, homework was always completed, and more confidence and engagement in their education was observed. All students said

they enjoyed the program, especially homework help, gym time, crafts and just having fun. The program is open for Grades 2 to 7 and registration begins Aug. 26. “With the help of the Royal Bank, we are pleased to provide a diverse after-school program that is inclusive to all children in need of a special place to come and get support academically, physically and emotionally,” said Parkside Academy’s director of programs Adriana Soler. —Ashley Degraaf

Duncan: Petition campaign viewed as too political for Saturday city square booth

F

olks with the decriminalizing marijuana campaign Sensible BC say they’ve been discriminated against by officials with the Duncan Farmer’s Market, after the Saturday market in Duncan City Square denied the not-for-profit group a booth. But market officials maintain the decision was based strictly on longstanding criteria. “We are a farmer’s market and an artisans market and basically go by the ‘You have to make it, bake it, or grow it, to be a part of it,’” said the market’s current president Mick Smith. “We try and stay Andrew Leong/file as (non-) political as we can.” Mark Primmer’s baked goods are an exSensible BC representatives, ample of what the Duncan Farmer’s Market including Duncan’s Steve LeSage gives priority to when allocating space. have been canvassing at markets, including the Mill Bay, Chemainus and lives in Duncan. and Koksilah farm markets.

a number of factora the market takes into consideration when looking at different applications. One is how full the market is. Organizers are not inclined to bump a local farmer for a group that doesn’t have anything to sell, since their top priority is showcasing local products. Even if they had space, Smith said, officials agreed Sensible BC’s campaign was too political to fit their format. Smith said he’s had no verbal contact from any of the campaign’s folks since the application was adjudicated Aug. 15. In the meantime, the marijuana referendum tour is hitting 15 Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast stops in six days, including Duncan’s Craig Street Brew Pub Saturday at 7 p.m. “We need volunteers and canvassers in every community,” said Sensible BC Director Dana Larsen in a press release announcing its Cowichan stop. “My goal is to meet local supporters and register them as canvassers so they can collect signatures this fall.” Larsen has prepared the legislation, which would effectively decriminalize marijuana. The law also calls upon the federal government to repeal marijuana prohibition, so that B.C. can legally regulate its cultivation and sale. The proposed law has been accepted by Elections B.C., and Larsen will have 90 days to collect signatures from 10% of the registered voters in every electoral district, beginning Sept. 9. These 400,000 signatures can only be collected by people who have first registered as a canvasser.

Lake Cowichan road project needs width question answered

End in sight for Donnay Drive roundabout

Nearly done: Engineers double-check to confirm project has enough space for median dividers

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

T

he new roundabout at the entrance to the Properties in Maple Bay is open after a slightly longer construction period frustrated residents. John Mackay, North Cowichan’s director of engineering and operations, said Wednesday the intersection was likely to be open to traffic again by Thursday, but by Friday, for sure. The detour route annoyed residents of the area. “The detour route is a bit longer,’’ Mackay said in comparison with other roundabouts that have been constructed. It seems the signs erected at the site before construction began caused some confusion. Residents thought the /13 meant July 13 completion after the advertised July 2 start-up, but Mackay said it meant 2013. It was obviously impossible to finish any roundabout in 10 days. “Generally, it takes us five weeks to build a roundabout,’’ he said.

North Cowichan’s latest traffic circle at the entrance to The Properties is finally ready. “This one’s taken us three extra weeks. We had some problems getting the rock out of there. It took two weeks of blasting to get the rock out.’’ This is the 14th roundabout now for North Cowichan. “All of them have been on schedule except for this one,’’ said Mackay. “We knew we had rock. We

didn’t think it was going to take that long and a gas main had to be lowered in rock.’’ Advertisements in the newspaper preceding the project actually indicated the intersection would be closed from July 2 to Aug. 16. Mackay indicated the /13 for the year on signs will probably be eliminated since people seem to keep mistaking it for the date.

medians. Road crews are awaiting word from engineers if they can proceed with plans to place a median in the centre of the road near Saywell Park. “The concern is that it’s a little tight on the road with people on the side of the road in front of the businesses, so with the median it can get pretty narrow there,” said Lake Cowichan Mayor Ross Forrest. “We know it’s wide enough, but depending on how people are getting out of their cars, there are just some safety concerns. We wanted to double check, and make sure everything was right before they proceeded any further.” Pending good news on that front, only minor setbacks, and cosmetics keep the freshly paved road and new roundabout from its mid-August completion date, said Forrest.

“The paving is pretty well finished, I don’t think the ministry has a whole lot left to do,” he said. “They’ve still got the little divider islands at the roundabout, which shouldn’t take very long, so I would think they are right on schedule or really close to it.” The weather has been co-operative, helping the project stay on time. The roadwork began in June and cost the town of Lake Cowichan $1.5 million, and the Ministry of Transportation the same amount. The project — done by Duncan Paving — took place from Youbou Road to the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena. “I don’t know if the ministry is within their budget,” said Forrest. “ I know it’s not costing the town any more, so I assume that it’s on budget—we haven’t heard anything to say otherwise.” Once the roadwork is complete, work will continue on the project’s more aesthetic aspects. There are still barriers to be installed, street lamps to go up, and crosswalks to be put in place—one of which is an enhanced crosswalk with LED lights, says Forrest.

obble Hill’s Whitney Williams thinks she can rock the Rog. That is the Rogers Arena in front of a massive crowd of Canucks fans. But that’s only if she wins the top spot in the Canucks National Anthem Contest ‘Rock the Rog’ presented by Klipsch. Williams, 19 but turning 20 soon, said she’s been selected in the Top 20 and it’s up to viewer’s votes of participant’s youtube auditions to see if she makes the next step, which is another cut of 10 hopefuls. If the classical voice student at the University of Victoria makes the next cut, she will be singing the Canadian and American national anthems in front of a panel of judges at the arena. If she’s chosen, it will be her first time singing in front of a crowd that large.

“The Shawnigan Lake Watershed is the source of drinking water for more than 7,000 people,’’ said CVRD board chair Rob Hutchins in a news release. “I am extremely disappointed in this decision by the Ministry of Environment for potentially putting the community and the environment at risk. The CVRD opposes this permit and believes the ministry has not considered the substantial public comment and opinion opposed to the issuance of this permit.’’ “What this represents is an inappropriate decision by government on a whole raft of grounds,’’ said Bruce Fraser, the Shawnigan Lake electoral area director. “The province is imposing a decision conveying a benefit to a corporation with a set of risks to a community. “This has to be corrected politically and not technically.’’ Fraser is worried about the affects of climate change in the future and the reduced quality and quantity of water available while also pointing out the island region is a seismically-active area. “There’s no way they can predict the safety of that site through the future seismic activity,’’ he said. Fraser also question the use of the term “soil remediation’’ site. “That makes it sound so benign,’’ he said. “We’re really talking about a contaminated waste dump. “All of these things add up to a complete lack of confidence on the part of the community.’’ The SRA and CVRD are banking on the appeal process. “We will be requesting an immediate stay from the Environmental Appeal Board to ensure that no contaminated soil is dumped until this matter is heard and decided,’’ noted Hern. “There’s nothing to stop the SIA from forging ahead while the appeal is happening unless the appeal board issues a stay,’’ Fraser pointed out. Kelly says SIA will now be proceeding with construction and intends to be operational in the near future. “We look forward to ongoing, meaningful dialogue with stakeholders and other interested parties,’’ he said.

Troubling queries left unaswered by soil decision Soil treatment approval: Accountability needed when public will is so clearly ignored

T

he only thing surprising about Wednesday’s announcement approving the SIA contaminated soil treatment facility in Shawnigan Lake was the timing. We expected the approval to come and we expected it to come in late summer. However, we were mildly surprised the province didn’t wait another nine days and announce it on the Friday before Labour Day in order to even further minimize its impact on the news cycle. How did we As much as the province stressed its ruling would be — and was — based let this apon solid science, and engineering, there proval hapwas no mistaking the huge political element to this decision. pen? Aside from a handful associated with South Island Aggregate and a few engineers, it is difficult, if not impossible to find people who supported this proposal. So why then is it moving ahead? Did the Ministry of Environment do its homework on this proposal and determine the safeguards were airtight? Was there any political pressure exerted from business-friendly provincial politicians to make this happen? Legal pressure? Did the CVRD do everything within its power to stand up for the wishes of its citizens? Is the legislation governing such proposals in itself flawed? No matter how you look at this situation, it is impossible to overlook the query that has dogged this idea from the beginning: contaminated soil in a sensitive watershed? Why take the risk? It remains a question without a satisfying answer. Which, of course brings us to the most pertinent unanswered question of them all: will Shawnigan residents ultimately pay the price for this decision with their drinking water?

We say:

As fun as our public beaches can be, they are also places that come with an element of risk. Having someone in place to make sure dangerous situations don’t spiral out of control and react appropriately when the do is simply common sense. North Cowichan and Youbou should be applauded for having the foresight to provide this service to their citizens, and provide jobs at the same time.

hereby respectfully petition the CVRD to extend the boundary of Area E to include my property in Sahtlam/Glenora/Cowichan Station. Or at least can they afford my property honourary membership in that noble electoral area?

bours in Duncan and North Cowichan — namely, agreeing to pay a mere pittance in extra taxes in order to qualify for the lower of the two-tier payment system for use of the Cowichan Aquatic Centre. I was vaguely aware of this two-tier system but didn’t pay much attention until I was recently checking out local gyms. I was looking for a place that would be conveniently close and affordable so I could indulge in regular workouts to make myself healthy and thereby reduce the burden I could place on our medical system as I gracefully age. I was pleasantly impressed with the gym facilities at the aquatic centre and even more pleased when I noticed that the dropin fee was a mere $4.25 for a fellow my age. Private gyms charge more than double that for drop-in rates or require a term contract to get the cost down to something reasonable. Who wants to sign up when they are not

It is the job of local officials to manage the public purse responsibly and without undue risk. The presence of a lifeguard at a public beach is known to expose the municipality to a higher degree of liability should something go wrong. And given the lack of actual lifesaving known to occur, the public is likely not receiving a good return on its investment anyway.

sure they like the facility? Anyway, I organized myself to go to this fitness centre at least two days a week, and proudly announced to my wife that I had found what I wanted to do. You can imagine my dismay when I showed up, with gym strip and water bottle in a tidy little bag, only to discover the nice lady at the front desk wanted to know where I lived. “Whatever for,” I wondered to myself. “Skutz Falls,” I blurted out. “You pay double the rate,” she said. “That will be $8.50 please.” Crushed, I dragged myself back to my car. Whatever was I going to do? I didn’t want to go to one of those private gyms populated by testosterone-fueled young men pumping iron and texting their friends about how cool and strong they are. Wait a minute, I thought. Don’t you know some of those folks at the CVRD?

Surely, they will see the injustice of it all and make some kind of arrangement so I could pay into Sahtlam Director Loren Duncan’s small aquatic centre access tax to qualify for the lower fee. Loren tells me it’s an accident of history, in any event, that my house is even in Area F. It rightfully belongs in Area E. I’m sure it’s no big deal to move these boundaries around a little — just stretch the western boundary out to include the area covered by the Sahtlam Volunteer Fire Department, which includes my house. It seems the natural thing to do, don’t you think? Patrick Hrushowy is a Cowichan writer and political consultant. Email him at phrushowy@shaw.ca

Who should pay for the Youbou truck wash? “If it’s really that much of an inconvenience to them (the tax payer) they should pay. It depends on what it would cost them. It might not be as bad as they think it is.”

Logging truck mess should not be fixed by the taxpayers

It’s wonderful seeing this young athlete develop

Dear editor It was a wonderful opportunity for my wife and I to see Cowichan track athlete Chicago Bains compete twice in the 80m hurdles Aug. 9. Chicago easily won her heat in the morning and then won the final in the afternoon in a record-breaking time while many family and friends cheered her on at the Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships held in Langley at McLeod Athletic Park. Chicago’s win brings back many memories for me recalling her mother Karmyn’s prowess in track and field when she attended George Bonner Junior Secondary School (where I taught). I have always had a soft spot for Karmyn from her Bonner days even before her marriage in the Bains family. Chicago’s dad Kam was no slouch in track either when he attended Mt. Prevost Junior Secondary School. His former teacher and track coach Ted Zinkan told me Kam “was a great distance runner and won the Junior Boys Island championship with one of the gutsiest runs I have ever seen.”   I applaud Chicago’s parents for making the extra effort to get her the coaching and training to give her the opportunity to bring out the best of her ability.  The family’s efforts as well as Chicago’s own commitment to track are paying off with great results.   H. S. Jawanda

A Big Thank You and Update on Cowichan Food Connection (The Bread Van)

Cowichan Food Connection has been in the charity food delivery business and has a history of service for over 20 years. At present Weston Bakery has now asked us to handle Nanaimo and pick up bread in Victoria starting September 1. To do this we’ve had to get big Bertha back on the road again. Thanks to a generous donation of $6000 from Peninsula CO-OP and a big Discount from Berks Intertruck Duncan we have a new rebuilt engine in her. Thanks to Robert Nikirk from OK Tire we have great new tires and Bertha has had loving care and a very generous discount from Foster of TD Repairs in Chemainus. We have a re-certified Bread-truck back in service! We can now go from delivering 2500 loaves a week to over 5000!!! But to do this this we are desperately looking for volunteer drivers and swampers to help load and unload the bread because we’re going to be back to delivering 70 charities year. We also badly need financial help. Gas alone is at present running over $2000 a month and then adding back on the big truck on now is very expensive. Expenses will be much higher than we can afford. Also we do require chains for the Malahat. Your donations of either time or money would be greatly appreciated and Charity receipts are available. For larger donations if you like we can put

How to Become a Roman Catholic

Dan Johnson

St. Francis Xavier / Our Lady Queen of the World Catholic faith community will be having sessions of “Inquiry” throughout September on how to become a Roman Catholic.

There is no charge or commitment to these sessions. They will take place at the new “Welcome Centre” on St. Francis Xavier Church grounds, 790 Kilmalu Rd., 2 p.m. until 3 p.m., Saturday.

W

e all know that smoking is bad for our health. Tests have shown that middle aged men who smoke show a more rapid decline in brain function as they age compared to men to don’t smoke. So here is another active step male smokers can make to reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Quit smoking. If you have children, it’s a good idea to have a digital thermometer in the house to take their temperature when they are ill. The advantage of the new digital units is that they can record temperatures in the mouth, armpit or rectum in under a minute. The old mercury-filled thermometers are no longer recommended. The ear thermometers are not recommended for newborns. It’s always interesting when research is done on a certain food and its effect on disease. Some good studies have shown a reduction in the risk of getting Parkinson’s Disease when people eat peppers 2-4 times a week. No one is quite sure why but making them part of your diet can’t hurt. Vision problems in the elderly can affect how medications are taken. Tell your pharmacist if you have problems reading the prescription labels on your medication. There are ways of making the printing larger or dispensing the medications in special packaging.

We have many ways of helping you to take your medications safely and accurately. Talk to our pharmacists for advice.

DATELINE: COWICHAN

1948: birthdays

1948: cinemas

by Ann Andersen

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 23

A smart modern box office, replacement front canopy and a new “big-city” sign were among upgrades planned for Duncan’s Capital Theatre on the north side of Station Street. New equipment for the projection room would improve screen lighting.

Mrs. E. B. Denny celebrated her 90th birthday with daughters N. C. Denny, co-headmistress of Queen Margaret’s School, and Iris Denny; and sons T. H. Denny M. B. E., H. A. M Denny and A. de C. Denny.

1948: planes

Duncan Aero Club had two aircraft on its float based at Quamichan Lake: a two-seat Cessna 140 and a four-seat Stinson station wagon. Miss Helen Harrison, the club’s instructress, and Mr. John Boak were the two pilots based there.

H

ave a notion to play golf this weekend? Five choices in the Cowichan Valley await your selection including the granddaddy of them all – Cowichan Golf and Country Club. Scoffers and skeptics abounded when a group of golfing enthusiasts announced plans to purchase 72 acres three miles south of Duncan for a golf course. By August 1948, $5,600 had secured the land, and work was underway to transform 65 acres of the forested rolling property into a golf course. Eight-and-one-half fairways were now ready for preparation, said golf club president W. W. Seymour. Soon, ploughing, levelling and forming the greens would start with expert advice from Victoria’s A. V. Macan on where to place tees and greens. The course would be seeded in September, but the eighth fairway would be shorter than planned because of heavy slashing required. A dam had been built to provide storage for a water hazard, and for watering the greens. By the end of September, the $25,000 raised would be used up. Another $10,000 would be raised for a clubhouse and a water distribution system. Plans for the clubhouse called for a large basement below and a lounge and other facilities upstairs.

Turn the HiFi on in Crofton this weekend

ARTISTS

In this digital world it’s still a good idea for music fans to listen to the hi-fi. Or, more precisely, The HiFi. The acclaimed Victoria four-piece brings its high-energy New Orleans-inspired funk to the Crofton Hotel Pub stage on Sunday. “Along with superstar pianist Art Booker and

drummer Damian Graham — who have played together for two decades — are trombonist Nick La Riviere, whom Graham calls ‘our secret weapon,’ and the band’s newest member, bassist Ryan Tandy,” an event promo piece reads. Booker, said Graham, is “one of those talents that you walk away from seeing perform and

say to yourself, ‘If in my life I never see someone play the piano with that much passion and skill again, I won’t be surprised.’” The show, part of the continuing Jazz at the Crofton Hotel series runs from 2 to 5 p.m. Admission is $10. For information, phone 250324-2245.

Escape to the best place on Planet Earth Luke Carroll: Hollywood producer finds a haven in Cowichan after rescuing big-budget animated movie

Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

L

uke Carroll isn’t Scorch Supernova — but Cowichan’s newest Hollywood producer helped rescue an animated film from a fiscal black hole. Carroll and his family are settling in to their Cowichan Station home where he’s decompressing from three years’ work on Escape From Planet Earth. But legal wrangling nearly buried Earth, a 3-D, computer-animated, sci-fi adventure flick produced by Vancouver’s Rainmaker Entertainment. “The movie just wasn’t happening after a falling out between the original company and the Weinsteins,” Carroll said of iconic Hollywood producers Harvey and Bob Weinstein, co-founders of Miramax. “They asked me to take the money that was left, and take the movie to the finish line.” Mission accomplished. Their $40-million, 90-minute film was released Feb. 15. It’s made more than $69 million at box offices so far, making the Weinsteins happy. “They’re delighted; it’s their most successful animated film yet,” the 42-year-old Londonborn producer explained of Earth, imbedded with voices by Brendan Fraser, William Shatner, Sara Jessica Parker, Rob Cordrry, Rickie Gervais and other stars. The plot — packed with odd characters and computers — sees astronaut Supernova (Fraser) caught in a trap when answering an SOS from a notoriously dangerous alien planet run

by General Shanker (Shatner), the evil head of Area 51. Back on Earth, Carroll became a production-team hero of sorts under director Cal Brunker’s crew. “I was the right guy at the right time.” But reaching the right place took years of paying dues working on various films, including Barbie movies for toy-giant Mattel. “Barbie was a great boot camp for learning how to make a little go a long way.” Now Carroll’s stoked about using Escape to teach a Victoria College of Art course on making an animated blockbuster. He’s also taught at the Vancouver Film School. A bachelor of social sciences from Durham University, was later joined by Carroll’s MFA in creative writing and film production from UBC. “My joy is all aspects of indie film,” said the guy who’s glad to be living in the Warm Land. (His wife, Frances, lived here with her parents for about five years. She moved to England, and met Carroll, who fell for Cowichan while visiting.) Offbeat British flick Withnail & I was cited among his favourites. “It’s reasonably funny with a real heart to it.” Simple entertainment values may also explain how Carroll picked Terry Gilliam and François Truffaut as inspirational directors. “The ones with a real stamp,” stated Carroll. “Quirky character-driven films are where I lean. I like movies with heart, that make you laugh.” Smiling with pride about Earth in his career garden, Carroll was ambiguous about his next project — Hollywood’s secretive that way. “I’ve got some irons in the fire. “For now, I’m most stoked about standing on my deck looking at the most beautiful part of the world.”

GILES: Elizabeth Mai August 16, 1915 - August 15, 2013 Elizabeth Mai Giles (nee Robertson) passed away peacefully at the Chemainus Health Care Centre with members of her family in attendance. Mai was predeceased by her husband Laurence, son Donald, and brother Ross. She is survived by her son Ken, brothers Ian (Muriel) and Hamish (Anne), grandchildren Madeleine (Kim), Michael, Lexi (Chad), James, Mark, great grandchildren Laina and Paul, daughter-in-law Karen (Bill) and sister-in-law Pat (Jim), as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Mai was born in Kings Daughter’s Hospital in Duncan BC. Her early years were spent in the Cowichan Valley where her family ran general stores at various times in Chemainus, Duncan, and Cowichan Station. In 1940 she went to Zeballos BC and worked in the general store there. It was in Zeballos that she met her future husband Laurence, who operated the taxi company. They wed in 1942, with Laurence going off to war in 1943, and returning in 1945 to Zeballos until 1952, when they moved to Victoria and opened Mai’s Cafe, which they ran until retirement in 1975. In retirement Laurence and Mai traveled extensively, visiting friends across Canada and making new ones. They belonged to the Golden Rods & Reels and were long time square dancers with the Mavericks. They also went to many Air Force reunions, both in Canada and in Britain. Mai was a delight to all who knew her, with her sunny disposition and ready smile. She loved to entertain, and held many family dinners over the years. Her love for her family ran deep, and she was supportive and accepting in all they got up to, well most of it. Till the very end Mai made friends, and the family was touched by the love for her displayed by the staff at Chemainus. She was a truly good person who touched all that met her, and she will be deeply missed. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to the staff of the Chemainus Health Care Centre for the exemplary care they took of Mai, and to Iris, Edith and Vaughn for the friendship they displayed. In Lieu of flowers please make donations to the Chemainus Health Care Auxiliary, 9909 Esplanade, Chemainus B.C., V0R 1K1 A service will be held at Sands Memorial Chapel,1803 Quadra Street Victoria, BC V8T 4B8 Saturday August 24, 2013 at 1 PM, reception to follow.

MITCHELL, Richard Dec 23, 1939 – Aug 17, 2013 Richard Mitchell received his promotion to heaven in the early hours of August 17, 2013, peacefully, and with a smile on his face, at Cowichan District Hospital. Richard was born in Glenridge, New Jersey, to Thomas and Helen Mitchell, and grew up in Bloomfield, NJ. In 1962 Richard had the opportunity to visit missionary friends in Nigeria. That same year he met Anne Sheppard, of Duncan, BC, who was also working in Nigeria, as a volunteer nurse. Richard and Anne were married on September 2, 1963, in Maple Bay. Richard trained and certified as a mechanic with Volkswagen which enabled them to return to Nigeria. During the Biafran civil war of 1967 they attended Bible college in California but soon returned to Nigeria where they devoted the next 15 years to missionary work. In 1980 they handed over their mission work in Nigeria and returned to Duncan to raise their family. Richard fixed bicycles and continued his service to the church, visiting care homes & seniors’ homes, running Bible camps, playing the guitar and singing. Always ready with a story or a song, many people say they felt blessed by his words, compassion and friendship. Richard leaves behind his loving wife of 50 years, Anne, sons Mark (of Hampshire, England), Andrew (of Duncan), Peter (of Edmonton) and daughter Martha Ainslie (of Florida) and beloved grand-children Andrew James, Karrighan, Jordyn, Brooklyn, Rozalina and Ethan. A celebration of Richard’s life will be held on Saturday August 31 at 1pm, at New Life Church, 1839 Tzouhalem Road, Duncan. All who knew him are welcome. Richard’s family give thanks for his life and for the dedicated care of the Duncan Ambulance Service and the medical staff at Cowichan District Hospital.

HAGELAND, Torbjoun December 5, 1950 – August 14, 2013 After a long and courageous battle with cancer Toby passed away peacefully at age of 62. He is survived by his loving son Kyle and daughter Kristine. He will be sadly missed by his many friends, including ex-wife and friend Valerie. Before he retired Toby worked for Crofton Mill and many years as a driller/blaster in the Forest Industry. We wish to thank the staff at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, special thanks to his nurse Keisha, also the kind and caring staff at Hospice. A celebration of life will be held at the Shawnigan Legion to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers kindly donate to Toby’s charity of choice, The Cancer Society.

LAMONT: Joseph Daniel “Danny� May 25, 1951 – August 19, 2013 It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Danny, at home with his loving wife Deb of 38 years by his side. Danny was born in Vancouver, raised in Caycuse (Camp 6) by his predeceased parents Joe and Phyllis Lamont. Danny will be forever remembered and dearly missed by his family; son Clint (Sheila); daughter Carla (Brent); grandchildren Bailey, Brock, Landon and Riley; brother Dennis (Laurie) and sister Sherry. Danny spent his employment years in logging and enjoyed fishing and camping with his family and his 2 four legged best friends “Pheobe and Harley�. Danny also had a passion for old vehicles and spent much time monkey wrenching with his good friends the Ketch’s. Thank you to the Stone Brothers (vehicle restoration) for their kindness. Thank you to Dr. N. Robertson and all the nursing staff for their compassionate care. A Celebration of Danny’s life will be held on Saturday, August 31, 2013 at 1p.m. at Duncan Meadows Golf Course, 6507 North Road, Duncan, BC. In lieu of flowers, those desiring may make donations to the BC Cancer Foundation. SANDS of DUNCAN 250-746-5212

Duncan duo dynamite for Burnaby at westerns

SPortS wAtCh

Two members of the Duncan Cardinals were great pick-ups for the Burnaby team that represented B.C. in the Western Canadian Peewee AA baseball tournament in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Brayden Radcliffe, far left, and Cam LeSergent helped power the team to

the championship. At one point, Radcliffe was catching when LeSergent was pitching, putting the two Duncan players in key positions at the same time. The Cardinals and their new teammates went undefeated in all five games played to bring back the gold medal.

Stony Brook the choice of field lacrosse options

McLean Chicquen: Full-ride scholarship starts next year, giving him time to bulk up and become even better Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

M

cLean Chicquen’s future in lacrosse is secured. The long-time Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association Thunder player has spent most of his years in lacrosse playing the boxla variety, but it’s the field version where his talents will be put to the test in a high-level program. After much consideration, Chicquen decided to accept a full-ride scholarship to Stony Brook University on Long Island, New York from seven schools he considered. He won’t actually be going to Stony Brook for one more year, giving him the opportunity to further develop and prepare within the Claremont Sports Institute program. “I actually get credits for playing lacrosse which is pretty cool,’’ said Chicquen. Chicquen attracted considerable attention during the past year, primarily for his play with the Victoria Shamrocks Intermediate A box lacrosse team. There’s such a crossover between the sports, the field programs follow the box lacrosse players and results very closely. “Box lacrosse was part of the reason I got a scholarship,’’ said Chicquen. “I had a really strong year.’’ He was one of four valley players

Kasey Eriksen

Playing top-level lacrosse for the Victoria Shamrocks Intermediate A team this season gave McLean Chicquen prime exposure among talent scouts, including those with field lacrosse teams to stock south of the border. on the Intermediate A Shamrocks along with Graham Winship, Jamie Jensen and Ryan Taylor who helped the team to third place in the provincials, although that wasn’t the result they were seeking. “We really thought we were going to win it this year,’’ said Chicquen. Nonetheless, his own play on the team plus past field experience with Mid-Island, Vic Field and Nanaimo led to him having serious discussions with Div. 1 U.S. schools. Chicquen narrowed the list down and visited three, including Provi-

dence College and Stony Brook on the same weekend in late June, and Bellarmine University in Kentucky in early July. “I knew Stony Brook was the fit for me,’’ said Chicquen after the official visits. “No. 1 was probably the facility there. Their training facility and stadium was unmatched. I just got chills standing in the stadium.’’ Chicquen decided it would be best for him to remain with the Claremont program another year, play for the Junior Shamrocks, take dual

credit university courses and then go to Stony Brook next August. “I chose to take the year off to get bigger and better,’’ he added. “I want to make a big impact as soon as I step on the field.’’ The availability of scholarships was another factor in his decision. Stony Brook already gave out its allotment of scholarships for 2013. “A full ride scholarship’s one of three they can give out per year,’’ explained Chicquen. B.C. lacrosse standouts Brody Eastwood and Challen Rogers are

already attending Stony Brook and enjoying great success in the American East Conference, making that option even more attractive to Chicquen. It may be a long way from home, but Stony Brook’s location in the Hamptons seems appealing to Chicquen. “It is about as far away as I could get from Vancouver Island, but that was just coincidence,’’ he indicated. “It is a beautiful location and the athletic and academic support at Stony Brook was most impressive.’’

atalia Garriock’s timing wasn’t good. We’re not talking about the ace Duncan Stingrays’ swimmer’s performance in the pool during the Canadian age group championships in Montreal. “I was sick for the whole meet,’’ said Garriock. Luckily, she was better for the 50-metre fly, her signature event. “I’m always way better in finals,’’ Gar-

riock said. “It gets me way more excited.’’ She placed sixth in the event for 16- to 18-year-old females, moving up from a pre-meet ranking of 14th. Garriock’s 28.62 time was a Stingrays’ club record that she’d broken twice previously herself. That event made Garriock just the fifth member of the Stingrays in club history to become a senior national qualifier. It gives her the opportunity to qualify for a spot on Team Canada for such competitions as the world trials next April. Garriock also raced in the 100 fly, 50 free, 200 I.M. and 100 free at age group

I guess my cold caught up to me.’’ The 50 free was also a good race for her, she said, with a clocking just 0.2 off a personal best. It was actually Garriock’s first time at nationals even though she’d qualified to go twice previously. “That was cool for me to come in sixth in Canada (50 fly) since I’d never gone before,’’ she said. Stingrays’ coach Leanne Sirup noted this was the largest and fastest age group

With that came a change where a standard of three qualifying times was needed to gain entrance. That cut the competition down to 1,100 qualified and 901 attending, including Garriock. Garriock also climbed in the rankings in three of her other swims: from 42nd to 25th in the 50 free, from 24th to 21st in the 100 fly and from 62nd to 48th in the 200 I.M.

Todd Hearn, 14, tows the line while doing a trick manoeuvre during the Victoria Aqua Ski Club’s novice tournament at Shawnigan Lake Saturday.

hawnigan Lake’s Leech lads led the charge for Cowichan water skiers at the Western Canadian and national championships. Jed Leech placed first in all three disciplines for first overall at the Westerns in Abbotsford for Junior Men. “In every single event — slalom, trick and jump — I PB’d (personal bests) in every event,’’ said Jed. Younger brother Ben Leech claimed third overall in the division with third place in both the tricks and jump and sixth in slalom. “I think it was pretty good,’’ said Ben. Desman Perry, the third Cowichan skier in the division, was third in jump, fourth in

tricking and fifth in slalom. Jim Lindsay finished fourth for slalom in Men’s 3. Victoria Aqua Ski Club members Jake Metcalfe and Tyler Lindsay competed in Boys’ 3. Metcalfe placed fourth in slalom and jump and fifth in trick while Lindsay was fourth in trick, 11th in jump and 14th in slalom. Quamichan club’s Kyle Fredrickson and Todd Heard came second and fifth, respectively, in slalom. Qualifiers then went on to the nationals in Calgary. Jed Leech placed first overall in the Junior Men’s event with firsts in slalom and jump and second in trick. “Obviously, there was twice as much competition,’’ said Jed Leech. “I skied pretty good, but I didn’t ski crazy like the week

Jim Lindsay was 11th in slalom for Men’s 3. In Boys’ 3, Fredrickson took second for slalom; Tyler Lindsay came fifth in trick and seventh in jump and slalom; and Metcalfe wound up fifth in slalom and jump and seventh in trick.

Playoffs out of reach Last gasp: Cricket team’s impressive run at United total falls just short Don Bodger

owichan’s slim chances Andrew Leong of making Cowichan’s Steve Cannon tries the Victoria to bowl over United Victoria and District Saturday at Shawnigan Lake. Cricket Association playoffs were dashed when it lost to United Victoria by 54 runs Saturday at Shawnigan Lake. United won the toss and elected to bat first. Cowichan usually likes to be in that position but didn’t get a choice this time. United is already in the playoffs and batsmen didn’t feel any pressure like the Cowichan bowlers did. Early success resulted in two wickets falling with the score at 35 but a stand of more than 100 had Cowichan reeling. The United scoreboard reached 138 for two but then the Cowichan bowlers began to make inroads with the middle of the order and removed half the batting at 155 for five. All was well from then on, with one exception. United’s Tanzil Rehman cut loose to score 53 off just 18 balls. United went all out after 44 overs, but raised its total to 275. Six Cowichan bowlers were wicket-takers. The best of the bunch was Steve Cannon at two for 22 while Nagy Thomas contributed two for 37. Adam Benning, Clayton Bodkyn and Cannon — Cowichan’s three key batsmen — couldn’t come through to give the team a run at the United total. Despite losing the trio in the early innings, Cowichan still made a serious effort to win. Thomas made 42 and Mits Nakagawa piled up a hard-hitting 78 in keeping with recent strong performances. Charles Swart (19 not out) and Lucien Nel kept the fight alive, as Cowichan reached 221 after only 34 overs. But the steady fall of wickets meant there was no one to take advantage of a further 11 overs to score the 55 runs needed for the win. Cowichan finished at 221 all out. The final league game of the season is Sunday against Carico at Shawnigan Lake.

T

he Div. 1 Island Soccer League schedule hasn’t been released yet, but Cowichan LMG Pringle is forging ahead with diligent preparations. Coach Glen Martin is expecting to open at home Friday, Sept. 6 in keeping with past practice. “For about eight years now, we’ve started on the Friday night,’’ said Martin. Few changes are likely to either the Cowichan lineup or the order of the league standings this season. Cowichan is only losing George Horne and Bram Taylor from its regular roster last season while veterans Darcy Kulai, George Thomas and Brad Thorne are all attempting to make a comeback with the team. Hopes of acquiring high-profile player Blair Sturrock may not materialize. “He’s up in the air,’’ said Martin. “He’s got a bit of an injury. He can’t really train. It’s between us and Bays to get him.’’ Nigerian John Emejuru has been out to practice but not certain of sticking with the team. He’s also currently nursing an injury. Martin is proceeding as if neither player will be available. In the meantime, he has some great young talent from Vancouver Island University still in the mix. “We’re definitely going to be older, more experienced and not as fast,’’ Martin said. Despite that, he figures Cowichan will be among the top contenders again this year along with Bays United Liquor Plus and Saanich Fusion, with Vic West and Nanaimo not far behind.

Coach Glen Martin, right, expects Andre to be among his top scorers again and likes how the return of Thorne, George Thomas and Darcy Kulai could add a lot more depth and experience to the lineup.

The U18 men and women both made it to the Cup final of their divisions, but lost to Ontario. The B.C. U18 men fell 29-21 to Ontario. Shawnigan Lake School’s Guisseppe Du Toit kept the B.C. boys in the game early with three penalty goals. Other Shawnigan Lake representation on the squad came from Nik Hildebrand, Chris Miles and Jenner Teufel. The second B.C. team in the men’s competition, the U17 True Blues, went down to a 26-7 defeat against Ontario in the division’s Plate final. Local members of that B.C.-2 team included: Shawnigan Lake School’s Tyler Beselt, Michael Henderson and captain Wes Wong. The B.C. U18 women were led into their final against Ontario by Cowichan’s Sam Jory, Hannah Lauridsen, Adrienne Saari, Leah Theobald and Allie White and Shawnigan Lake School’s Nicole Crowley, who all

played hard in the 25-5 loss to Ontario for the gold medal. “We had Ontario in our pool — they beat us in our pool play, too,’’ said Crowley. “It was closer in the final. It was really bad conditions. It was really wet.’’ A silver medal helped brighten the spirits of the girls on one of the few gloomy days of the past two months. “They were strong, overpowered us,’’ conceded Crowley of the Ontario team. In the men’s U16 Cup final, B.C.-1 walked all over Ontario 50-0, with George Barton scoring one of the tries. He had six tries in the tournament. Callahan McMaster, Cole Milne and Simon Gray were the other Shawnigan players joining Barton on the squad. Carl Smit played for the U16 B.C.-2 Blue team that went 3-3 overall. The U16 B.C.-1 Gold women romped to a 19-0 victory over Ontario in the title game, with Brentwood College’s Ciel Arbour-Boehme, McKenna Haz and Avi Sharabi playing starring roles. Arbour-Boehme posted three tries in the tournament. The U16 B.C.-2 Blue women’s development squad included Cowichan’s Hannah Morten.
