space.” The SPCA’s decision to look elsewhere is a blow to the Maritime Heritage Society which lobbied council to agree to have the SPCA as a tenant. M.J. (Marv) Everett, president of the Maritime Heritage Society, wrote a letter to council stressing the importance of finding a long-term renter. “It is essential to the ongoing operation of the MHS and the on-going fulfilment of our operating mandate that we find a secure and reliable tenant for the vacant MHC space,” said Everett who claimed coun-

cil has had “continued indifference and apathy to our numerous pleas over the past several years for a fair, non-oppressive contract.” Everett also said that if a re-zoning was necessary to accommodate the SPCA, the Maritime Heritage Society was prepared to do whatever it took to make the zoning changes happen. Meanwhile, the BC SPCA said it chose the Maritime Heritage Centre because it fit the animal society’s needs. “In our search between March and July, 2013, the Maritime Centre was the only leasehold space the SPCA was able

to identify which met our specific requirements,” according to the BC SPCA’s news release. “The re-zoning decision will unfortunately delay the opening of our new centre as we seek appropriate leasehold space, but we look forward to our future. “To assist us in opening as soon as possible, we are hoping that the community will come forward if they are aware of any leasehold space.” The space must meet the following criteria: n 1,600-2,100 square feet at $7-$15 a square foot. n Water, sewer and natural gas in the leasehold property

itself. n Zoned for kennelling. n Access to nearby park or walkway to walk dogs. n Good parking. n Access to public transit. Suggestions have already been making the rounds on the Campbell River SPCA’s Facebook page. Possible options floated include the former Lite Shop on 13th Avenue, Campbell River Common, Sunrise Plaza in Willow Point as well as the former Canada Trust building in Merecroft Village, though the former bank site was ruled out as the rent is out of the SPCA’s price range.

Feds hand out money for gravel

One of the newest members of the Tyee Club is helping to support future generations of salmon on the Campbell River. On Tuesday, MP John Duncan handed over $20,500 to the Campbell River Salmon Foundation on behalf of Fisheries and Oceans Canada. The money will go to the gravel replacement project on the river, specifically a site favoured by spawning chinook. “Gravel placement is an important part of rebuilding the iconic Campbell River chinook salmon population,” said foundation chairman Martin Buchanan. “This funding, as well as the funding from the BC Hydro Fish and Wildlife Compensation fund...is greatly appreciated in carrying out the ongoing gravel placement projects.” Duncan presented the funds on Monday and knows well the value of local chinook salmon. Within a 12-hour span on Aug. 16-17, the longtime politician caught two chinook over 30 pounds – 33 and 30 pounds respectively – which earned him a place in the exclusive Tyee Club. “Recreational fishing is a popular leisure activity in Campbell River that not only brings family and friends together, but also contributes to our economy by attracting tourists and creating jobs,” said Duncan. “Through partnering with our local groups like the Campbell River Salmon Foundation who work on the ground to conserve fish habitat, the Government of Canada helps promote investments in recreational fisheries habitat restoration in our province, for the benefit of our communities in years to come.” The money is coming from a $1.9 million fund to support recreational fishing projects throughout B.C.

facing charges of resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer, escaping lawful custody, possession of cocaine, possession of ammunition contrary to a probation order, and two further counts of breaching probation. During his sentencing hearing for the manslaughter conviction in

2011, the judge strongly advised Nelson to seek residential treatment for substance abuse. And according to the Prince George Citizen, Supreme Court Justice James Williams also had this advice for Nelson: “I really hope things can work out for you because if you find yourself back before the court, there really will be fewer options for you.”

The Immigrant Welcome Centre of North Vancouver Island held All the World Lives Here, a colourful event at Spirit Square on Saturday that involved numerous cultural groups like the Filipino dancers (above), the Tara School of Irish Dance (above right and centre), the Afri-Arabic drummers and more.

Additional traffic pattern change at Campbell River Hospital main entrance

VIHA 5X8.5

Site work to prepare for the new $266 million, 95-bed Campbell River Hospital will lead to some traffic disruption around the existing Campbell River Hospital entrance on 2nd Avenue in the days ahead. The regular exit from the 2nd Avenue main entrance parking lots will be closed to traffic from Tuesday, September 3rd to Saturday, September 7th. During this period, motorists will be required to enter and exit the parking lots from the regular entrance. Traffic control flag persons will be on hand to assist. This work may lead to brief delays entering and exiting the main entrance parking lot. Please take this into account and allow additional time for your hospital visit. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. This work is related to construction of a new temporary Ambulance Access Route to the existing hospital Emergency Department entrance. The new temporary Ambulance Access Route is required because construction of the new hospital next year will block the present ambulance route to and from the present Emergency entrance. Please watch for additional temporary traffic changes in the weeks to come.

Accused killer flip-flops on pleas

www.CampbellRivermirror.com www.CampbellRiverMirror.com

Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

A man accused of killing his wife is finally getting a lawyer, but it wasn’t easy. Traigo Andretti, 37, is charged with the first degree murder of his wife Jennifer McPherson, 41. He’s also charged with committing an indignity

to a human body. The Hanson Island man was arrested May 6, the same day McPherson’s remains were found on the island where they worked as resort caretakers. Since then, Andretti has made several brief appearances in Campbell River provincial court, mostly by video from

the jail cells in Victoria where he’s being held. On Monday though, Andretti appeared in person in court. A judge ordered his personal appearance because Andretti wanted to enter guilty pleas without having consulted with a lawyer. Crown prosecutor David Fitzsimmons also

agreed that Andretti should have either legal counsel or someone to advise him before pleas were entered. Andretti did have a lawyer after his first arrest, but she was removed from the case in June after she advised the court that the lawyerclient relationship had broken down.

WeDNeSDaY, WEDNESDAY, aUGUST AUGUST 28, 28, 2013 2013 || Campbell CAMPBELL RiveR RIVER miRRoR MIRROR || 55

Since then, Andretti repeatedly told judges that he doesn’t want a lawyer and at his last court appearance in July, he said he wanted to plead guilty to both charges. That prompted the personal appearance order. As well, Fitzsimmons told the provincial court

judge the matter would have to go before a B.C. Supreme Court justice. On Monday morning, Andretti appeared in the prisoner’s box in Campbell River provincial court. According to Fitzsimmons, Andretti told the judge he still wanted to plead guilty, so the case was shifted

to the next courtroom where a supreme court judge was sitting. This time though, Andretti pleaded not guilty and asked for a lawyer. The judge gave him until his next court appearance, Sept. 16, to consult with legal counsel.

Renaming 11th Avenue would HUGECBS 3x3 be too costly, city staff report SALE CLEARANCE

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Nearly one year after it was first proposed, city staff are recommending council refrain from legally changing the name of 11th Avenue in recognition of our war veterans. Instead, it’s being recommended council rename the street informally. City staff said re-naming the portion of 11th Avenue between Cedar Street and Shoppers Row to Veteran’s Way would be costly and potentially confusing. “The formal change requires a number of steps and a cost to both the process and the potential financial support to business affected by this change,” said Drew Hadfield, the city’s

transportation manager, in a report to council. “With keeping the legal name as is, there are no changes required to any business. “Utility and emergency responders would not see a change and it is common to have local names for areas for which emergency responders and the public become familiar with over time.” The solution? To give the block an honourary name change, which would limit the cost of signage and would avoid having just a small chunk of an existing road being legally known under a different name. Hadfield’s report was prompted by a recommendation from Mayor Walter Jakeway made shortly after last year’s Remembrance Day cer-

emony. Jakeway wanted council to consider changing the name of the portion of 11th Avenue that leads up to the cenotaph in Spirit Square and which runs alongside the Royal Canadian Legion. “I think it’s a great way to honour our vets, (renaming) the street right in front of their building over to the cenotaph – we all meet there November 11,” Jakeway said at a council meeting last November. “It would be wonderful if we could designate it to the honour of our vets.” Jakeway noted at the time that the name change would only affect the city’s Community Centre and three local businesses – the Legion, Uptown Willie’s cafe, and Britches and Hose Vintage Clothing. Jakeway

said affected businesses could apply to have the city reimburse change of address costs up to $2,500. Hadfield suggested the city avoid those costs altogether and adopt the honourary name change which would cost the city $500 in additional signs. “The hnourary name change would have little to no impact on the existing businesses or the community as a whole,” Hadfield said. “This change would include the placement of new street blades signifying both names, with the prominence on the honourary name being Veteran’s Way.” Hadfield’s recommendation was up for debate at Tuesday’s council meeting, after the Mirror went to press.

‘Important step’ taken towards compost facility Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city is moving forward with an organic compost facility to serve the entire region. The facility would be intended to process biosolids as well as organics generated by households, institutions and businesses across the Comox Strathcona Waste Management service area. Amber Zirnhelt, the city’s sustainability manager, said the proposed facility would be run as a private-public partnership

and would help realize the Comox Strathcona Waste Management Service’s key priority of diverting organics from the landfill. “All of the major communities within the CSWM (Comox Strathcona Waste Management) service areas have expressed interest in curbside organics collection,” Zirnhelt said. “In order to make this a reality, the region requires a facility to process organics.” Council, at its Aug. 13 meeting, voted unanimously to pro-

ceed with issuing a Request for Interest and Qualifications to evaluate respondents who are able and willing to invest in developing and operating an organic management facility in Campbell River. Coun. Andy Adams noted that the vote was an important step for the city. “I think the significance of this is we have just passed a motion to look at the possibility of having a regional compost facility right here in Campbell River that would provide services

to the Comox Valley and the Strathcona Regional District area,” Adams said. The city is considering building the compost facility on approximately 10 hectares of available land at the Norm Wood Environmental Centre (near Orange Point Road in North Campbell River) at the former biosolid application site. Zirnhelt said that development of a regional-scaled compost facility will provide potential local job opportunities related to organics processing as

Three busts, two days Police seized marijuana plants and other drugs during three busts in two days last week. On Aug. 22, Campbell River RCMP seized 50 pot plants and some dried marijuana from a home located in the 300 block of Larwood Road. Another raid took place Saturday on Westgate Road. Officers seized pot plants and are recommending charges against a male resident. The same day, officers arrested a man well-known to them. He was allegedly found with cocaine, morphine and other evidence of drug trafficking. He was arrested and later released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. His name was not released.

well as an opportunity for significant waste diversion. According to a study done by Maura Walker and Associates consulting group, there is an estimated 11,000 tonnes per year of compostable material generated in the Comox Strathcona Waste Management area. Approximately 35 per cent of residential household waste, or 1,150 tonnes in Campbell River is compostable organics, and 337 tonnes of biosolids could also be composted each year, Zirnhelt said.

The week that was For the week of Aug. 18-25, RCMP responded to 333 calls for service. Impaired driving continues to remain a priority for the detachment as seven drunk drivers were arrested last week.

Our View

Drug law reform must proceed Failed NDP leadership candidate Dana Larsen and his group Sensible BC are set to kick off their campaign next month to force a referendum on marijuana policy. Much like the We say: Debate ultimately successful Fight HST begins around a petition in 2010, Larsen hopes to use the Recall and Initiative Act to force referendum on an end to what he sees as archaic and marijuana policy draconian drug laws. Specifically, Larsen and his group want to prohibit the use of police resources in B.C. to enforce drugs laws aimed at the possession and use of

marijuana. Larsen will need to get more than 10 per cent of registered voters in each of B.C.’s 85 electoral districts to sign the petition in order to force a province-wide referendum on the issue. He’ll have 90 days to do it, beginning next month. Larsen is no doubt emboldened by the success of the Fight HST campaign, not to mention the recent move by Washington State to legalize recreational marijuana use there. And the message is clear: Marijuana prohibition does vastly more harm than good.

It’s a message that is increasingly finding an audience. An Ipsos poll conducted last year found that 66 per cent of Canadians support the decriminalization of marijuana in small amounts. Twenty-five years ago, that number was just 39 per cent. It’s an encouraging trend. Marijuana prohibition funds organized crime, wastes tax dollars, wastes police resources, and makes the drug easier for young people to obtain. Larsen should be commended for going after an issue that most politicians are too afraid to touch. His message is one that deserves to be heard. – Black Press

Beach abuse continues Re: DFO response to illegal harvesting not good enough.  (Mirror Opinion August 23) The reason local residence are “tattling” as you demeanly say,  is that our beaches are being depleted by poaching. Your editorial states that there is no reason to doubt claims by local citizens as there are photos that show groups of 25 or so of people constantly digging on the beach, filling fivegallon pails with geoduck clams, when the law allows six clams per person per day. This should be sufficient evidence. When local residents confront the poachers,  their concerns fall on deaf ears as the poachers know that up until now,  they are free to flaunt the laws. The residents reporting  the infractions are not “tattling” they are reporting an unlawful act. Our citizens plead with the DFO or the RCMP to do something.  However, what   good is reporting when no action is taken to stop them? In my opinion, the only cure for poaching is to levy heavy fines or jail time when apprehended.  This is the only language they understand. Concerned residents are terrified that our living beaches will become wastelands  if this abuse continues unabated;  we will be left with a lifeless coastline.

B.C.’s oil spill response woefully inadequate

Alistair Taylor

Out On A Limb @AlstrT

editor@campbellrivermirror.com

The B.C. government is worried that it can’t respond properly to an oil spill on the west coast. Great. A freedom of information request by Canadian Press obtained briefing notes written by B.C. Environment Ministry bureaucrats for a meeting in June, according to the Globe and Mail. Environment Minister Mary Polak’s staff told her to say that the province is concerned that B.C. doesn’t have the capacity to respond to the current oil tanker traffic on the coast, never mind increasing it by 1,000 more tanker trips if the Northern Gateway pipeline is built. A spill on the coast currently would not be dealt with adequately – right now. The way things work now, if there’s a spill, it’s up to the oil industry to provide

the response. It’s the job of government officials to ensure that the response happens and to monitor it as it goes along. Now if that doesn’t give you chills, then I don’t know what would. Who would you trust least in responding to an environmental catastrophe – the oil industry or the federal government? That’s a tough one, I know. Remember, the federal government has proven to be hostile to scientists and other bespectacled geeks in its employ. The feds’ oil spill response capacity was cut back so much that it was reduced to being operated out of – get this – Quebec! The Vancouver operations were closed. Picture the scene: “We need to consolidate operations, let’s see...who has

the most coastline? Oh, that’s right B.C.! Let’s not put our response capacity there!” Why do we never get these things right? So, now it’s taken skulduggery by the media to ferret out B.C.’s admission that we (collectively – both the feds and the province) cannot respond properly to an oil spill on the west coast. It makes me wonder if that’s the reasoning behind Victoria’s seemingly tough talk regarding the Northern Gateway pipeline. You’ll remember that Premier Christy Clark outlined five provisions that have to be met in order to receive British Columbia’s approval for the pipeline across central B.C. which would bring Alberta oil to a tanker port on the B.C.

northwest coast. Perhaps Clark was really pushing for funding for a better environmental response capacity for the B.C. coast because she knew what we have is woefully inadequate. One can only imagine how much a proper response would cost. And this is just the coast. With a Northern Gateway pipeline we have to be concerned about a spill through some pristine natural environment in the north-central region of our province. Well, we’ve got our handbasket, let’s pretend we’re Dorothy. The oil industry, Ottawa and Victoria can pretend they’re her counterparts. Who were they again? The Three Stooges...no, that’s not right. Anyway, we can all hold hands and skip our way down the oil-slick road.

Regional district shoots down Klahoose marina project Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Klahoose First Nation’s re-zoning application for a marina in Squirrel Cove has been denied by the Strathcona Regional District board. The project, a 69-berth and 46 single-point mooring marina off Cortes Island, was proposed by the Klahoose Resort Limited Partnership earlier this year. On Thursday, the application was up for third reading and was defeated after a 2-2 vote of electoral directors, with directors Jim Abram (Quadra Island) and Noba Anderson (Cortes) in favour and directors Brenda Leigh (Area D) and Gerald Whalley (Area A) opposed. Before the vote at

Thursday’s board meeting, Anderson urged her fellow directors to vote in favour of the application. “In keeping with this Cortes support for the new OCP (Official Community Plan), almost all of the local island input received through this rezoning process supported the Klahoose application,” Anderson said. “Although some support came with concern about business competition and project viability, nonethe-less Cortes Islanders overwhelmingly supported the application.” Abram sided with Anderson, saying he wanted to honour the wishes of the Cortes community and added that he hoped other directors would do the same. Howe ver, Whalle y voted against the applica-

tion because he felt the boaters would be the ones most directly affected by the application and at last month’s public hearing, most of them opposed the project. Director Leigh felt the application was inconsistent with Cortes’ Official Community Plan and said she believed the proposal was not an appropriate use of the area. Directors also gathered the opinions of more than 35 people who spoke at a public hearing July 24 at the Gorge Hall on Cortes. The public hearing itself was controversial because of the regional district’s decision to decline the Klahoose’s invitation to hold the public hearing in the First Nation’s community. The decision by the board to hold the public

hearing in what some directors dubbed a “neutral” setting, the Gorge Hall, angered many Cortes Islanders and disappointed the Klahoose as well as Anderson, who had pushed the board to change its decision. But the location was never changed and nearly one hundred people came out to the Gorge Hall to have their say. Most Cortes Islanders supported the proposal. Bob Tracy, a 30-year full-time resident of Cortes and a yachtsman and a shell fish grower, said the development of mooring buoys would be an improvement to the old booming grounds and felt the proposed sewage pump out station would be a good asset to the area. Yvonne Kipp from

Graphic Designer

Manson’s Landing on Cortes, said the development would provide a much-needed investment to the community and a vision for the future. Cortes’ Sonja Friesen said if the applicant was not from Cortes she would not support the development, but spoke in favour of the project because she wanted to see the Klahoose improve their economic situation. But not everyone was in favour. Colin Robertson of Refuge Cove Marina, the nearest community to Squirrel Cove, said he was shocked by the Klahoose’s proposal as the community has already lost its shellfish tenure and its boating fleet and the only thing that sustains their livelihood is the boating industry,

which would be taken away with the Klahoose building a marina just three kilometres away. Sheila Boutcher, president of the Council of BC Yacht Clubs, also spoke against the development on behalf of the 10,000 plus members of the BC Yacht Clubs. Boutcher said “there are serious doubts about the economics of the current proposal and boaters will not make use of the facilities if the proposal proceeds and the wilderness ambiance is lost,” according to the minutes of the public hearing. “There are a maximum of 30-70 boats in the Cove during the season, other marinas in the area are not at capacity. Congestion caused by the float planes and the fuel dock will be detrimental

to the local economy.” Despite the board’s decision, Anderson said in a director’s report to her constituents posted on the website cortesisland.com Tideline, that the Klahoose told the regional district in writing that it would still proceed with its marina development regardless of the board’s decision. Anderson said in her report that the board’s decision has the potential to have consequences. “The decision before us was not really one of the marina being developed or not but rather very simply one of supporting the will of a community and a nation or alienating a neighbouring government,” Anderson wrote. “However deeply unfortunate, we collectively chose the latter.”

Foul odours keeping Carbon Trust shunned by council some residents inside Kristen Douglas

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Campbellton residents are raising a stink about the sani-station on 17th Avenue. Christine O’Connor, who lives directly across from the sani-dump, said the smell is so bad she can’t sit outside her home. “I still can’t have a barbecue on my porch without the putrid smell of fecal matter rolling through the hot summer air,” O’Connor wrote in a letter to council. “Every Sunday during the summer the traffic is backed up down the street and a constant rolling of RVs and buses continuously dump their refuse right in front of my home.” O’Connor’s letter to council, dated July 22, is the fifth letter she’s written to council in six years asking for some help. “Over the past seven years that we have owned our home, I have been in contact with previous mayors, council members and city waste management, numerous times about the dump site,” O’Connor wrote. “All of my correspondences have either been ignored or brushed off.” But this time, with the backing of the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association and a petition with more than 100 names requesting the

closure of the sani-dump, O’Connor is finally getting a response. Jennifer Peters, the city’s utilities manager, is recommending council decommission the 17th Avenue sani-station following the end of this year’s RV season. Council was expected to consider the recommendation at Tuesday’s council meeting after the Mirror went to press. Peters said the station, which has been in operation since 1979 generally between May and September, has prompted concern from city staff and costs $3,000 per year to maintain. “Over the last few years, staff have received several complaints from area residents regarding the odours and general cleanliness of the site, including sewage spills that are not cleaned up by the users,” Peters said in a report to council. “Staff are also concerned about the use of the site and the disposal of materials that are not permitted in the sewer system. Evidence of commercial and nonRV use and prohibited waste being discharged includes the discovery of carpet fibres and other debris on the inlet screen.” Peters said to meet the needs of RV users, the sani-station should be reasonably clean and functional with water

available for flushing and filling potable water tanks as well as garbage disposal; however, the current level of service at the station does not consistently meet those needs. The other problem is the site is unsupervised. “Without staff presence, the sewer inlet is frequently plugged and not able to accept sewage until maintenance is completed,” Peters said. “Also, the water hoses are frequently damaged or stolen and therefore users are sometimes unable to clean up spills until the hoses are replaced.” Peters said one solution is to increase the level of service to provide a quicker response time to spills and plugs but that would cost $10,000 per year and would not guarantee an end to inappropriate use of the facility. Re-locating the sani-station would cost $50,000. A better solution, which would also eliminate the foul odours creeping into the nearby residential neighbour hood, is to de-commission the sani-station at a cost of $3,000, Peters said. RV users could still use sani-stations at Mohawk (South Island Highway), Shell (Quinsam Crossing), the Quinsam Campground off Highway 28, Miracle Beach, Pacific Playgrounds, and Salmon Point Resort.

e Dentist Ask th Dr. Lathangue

Question: I’ve recently been diagnosed

3x5

with uncontrolled diabetes and my doctor suggested I see my dentist. Why?

Answer: Diabetes affects many Canadians each year ~ it can lower your resistance to infection & can slow the healing process. The most common oral health problems associated Dr. Kevin Lathangue with diabetes are tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease which leads to tooth loss. When diabetes is not controlled properly, high sugar levels in saliva may help bacteria thrive. Plaque that is not removed can eventually harden (calcify) into calculus. When calculus collects above the gumline, it cannot be removed by brushing. This can create conditions that lead to chronic inflammation and infection in the mouth. Periodontal disease often is linked to the control of diabetes. For example, patients with inadequate blood sugar control appear to develop periodontal disease more often and more severely, and they lose more teeth than do people who have good control of their diabetes. Brushing twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, cleaning once a day between your teeth with floss and seeing your dentist regularly for an exam will help you to maintain your overall health.

Coun. Andy Adams wants city council to send a letter to the premier requesting an end to an emissions reduction program that penalizes communities that don’t meet carbon neutrality targets. Adams was expected to put a motion before council at its Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday endorsing the mayor to send a letter to Premier Christy Clark recommending the immediate repeal

of the B.C. Carbon Tax. Adams also wants city staff to draw up motion supporting the repeal of the Carbon Trust to be presented at next year’s Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities (AVICC) meeting and the 2014 Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) convention. The Carbon Trust was introduced in 2008 alongside the Carbon Tax and unlike the latter, the Carbon Trust has recently been called into question. “While the Carbon

Tax has been extremely successful, and recently applauded by the naysayers across the country, the B.C. Carbon Trust has not,” Adams wrote in a report to council. “The B.C. Carbon Trust has been seen as a punitive initiative to the public sectors that are mandated to pay for carbon offsets out of existing operating budgets while the private sector are not required to participate and do not contribute at all.” Adams said that last year public sector institutions, such as local

governments and hospitals, paid $18.8 million into the B.C. Carbon Trust. “The city of Campbell River was forced to allocate $40,000 out of the 2013 budget, which equates to a 0.3 per cent increase to residential taxpayers,” Adams said. The Carbon Trust is part of an effort by the provincial government to be carbon neutral. Under the program, B.C. communities are required to purchase carbon offsets to counter their greenhouse gas emissions.

MANAGING YOUR MONEY You canManaging but maybe shouldn’t Youryou Money 4x10

infighting that could eat up the assets.

Chris Nagle

B.Comm, MBA Division Director

“Easy” and “simple” decisions don’t always add up to the right financial/estate planning answers. Here are a few “because I can” decisions to consider just a bit more carefully. I will add an adult child as the joint owner of my investments or property because it will make the distribution of my estate easier. While there are certain situations in which joint ownership of assets can be a sound strategy, you need to look at it from many angles: • Are you willing to give up control of the asset(s)? • If your child separates or divorces, do you want the asset(s) potentially divided between your child and an exspouse? • What happens if your child goes bankrupt? • Are you okay with disinheriting the children of your child, if your child dies shortly before you do? • Do you intend that your joint owner should share the asset(s) with other beneficiaries (including your other children) in your will or has no obligation to share? If the joint ownership contract between you and your child is not explicitly worded, it could lead to expensive sibling

Why go to the expense of retaining a lawyer when all I need is a Will Kit? For starters, you won’t have access to expert advice about whether your clause selections are appropriate to your situation. A simple “kit” program won’t ask key questions about your family and estate structure, such as: • Is yours is a blended family? If so, you could inadvertently disinherit children from a previous relationship. • Is a beneficiary disabled? If so, it is usually advantageous to establish a discretionary trust in your will to protect that beneficiary’s ability to receive social assistance payments. If the beneficiary is mentally disabled, then a trust will also allow you to choose someone to manage the beneficiary’s inheritance. • Is the charitable organization you wish to leave your estate to properly registered with the CRA as a charity? If it isn’t, you won’t get a tax credit. Nor will a “kit” program provide tax advice or assess the different tax liabilities each beneficiary could face, leading to an inequitable distribution of your estate. In addition, when a lawyer prepares your will, the lawyer has certain

obligations under the law to make a basic assessment of your capacity, which could become important evidence later on, if some family members want to challenge your will. I will give significant sums of money to family members during my lifetime. Whether the money is “gifted” or “loaned” to your children for whatever reason, without the proper advice and direction, there could be a minefield of problems down the road. For example, if the arrangement isn’t properly documented, it could be argued that it was, indeed, a loan or may result in one child receiving a significant gift during your lifetime that unfairly reduces another’s inheritance. What you should or shouldn’t do in situations like these isn’t always clear. Your legal and professional advisors can bring clarity you need to every aspect of your financial life.

Thief shows ‘callous disregard’ for his break

Long-time thief Justin Esau caught a break when he received a conditional sentence to be served at home. Last November, the

32-year-old received a sentence of two years less a day for break and enter, and possession of stolen property. On May 21, 2012, his fingerprints were found on the inside and outside of a home on Taylor Way.

When the home owners returned, they found their car gone, along with guns and tools. Esau gave the car to his girlfriend and had earlier pawned an iMac computer which had been stolen from a local

private college. During his bail hearing in Campbell River provincial court, Crown prosecutor John B occabella outlined Esau’s criminal history which dates back to 2000 and includes convictions

Rainy weather lifts campfire ban The bad news is obvious, it’s raining and it’s still summer. The good news though is the coast-wide campfire ban has been lifted. The public is reminded that campfires cannot be larger than a half- metre high by a half-metre wide. Anyone who lights a campfire must have a hand tool (such as a shovel) or at least eight litres of water available to fully extinguish it. Never leave a campfire unattended and make sure that the ashes are completely cold to the touch before leaving the area. Category 3 open fires are permitted throughout the

A Category 3 open fire burns material in piles larger than two metres high by three metres wide, windrows or grass over an area larger than 2,000 square metres.

for thefts, frauds, break and enters, possession of stolen property, drug possession, and breaching court orders. “Mr. Esau’s record is abysmal,” he said, as the judge agreed in denying bail. D e spite h i s l ong criminal record, Esau received a conditional sentence that included s e vera l condit ions. Among them, were orders to remain under house arrest for the first eight months and to abide by a curfew for the next eight months. Still, under strict

guide- and time-lines, Esau was allowed to shop for his needs, meet with his probation supervisor and go to medical appointments. In spite of these allowances, Esau managed to breach those conditions twice and on Monday he was in court again to plead guilty to his third breach of the conditional sentence. Esau’s been in custody since Aug. 16, and Crown prosecutor Bruce Goddard asked the judge to suspend the conditional sentence and impose 21 more days jail

time on the offender, for the equivalent of a 30-day sentence. Appearing by video from the jail cells in Victoria, Esau’s lawyer asked for time served, pointing out it was just a minor breach. B u t Ju d g e B r i a n Saunderson disagreed with both lawyers. He said Esau has shown a “callous disregard” for the orders in his conditional sentence. The judge suspended the conditional sentence and ordered Esau to spend another 30 days in jail.

Museum to get up a head of steam for Labour Day It’s time for the Museum at Campbell River’s Steam Donkey to roar. In celebration of Labour Day, Monday, Sept. 2, from 12 noon to 3 p.m., the museum will fire up its steam donkey in honour of the island’s rich logging history.  It’s an amazing sight to see this old workhorse of the forest all steamed up.  As part of the festivities, a blacksmith’s forge will be on hand for demonstration. 

Restored logging trucks will be on display, including a 1932 920 Kenworth with a 1931 Hayes Anderson 15 ton trailer.  And the Museum’s amazing Lego collection will be outdoors for the kids (and parents) to play with. Free coffee will be available.  Inside the Museum be sure to check out the exhibit “Burning Snags and Raining Ashes: The Bloedel Fire of 1938 and its Aftermath.”

Horst Stotzer April 16, 1930 – August 19, 2013 Horst Stotzer was born in Jena, Germany in 1930. Dad apprenticed as a carriage maker, and after the hardships of war, looking for the outdoor life and opportunities abroad, Dad chose to come to Canada in 1952. While living in Toronto for the first two years, he met his wife, Dora. Travels took the two of them west to Alaska, then down to Vancouver Island where he felt he was in “God’s Country�. After a short stay in Forbes Landing and the next two years in Campbell River, Horst and Dora decided to settle at Miracle Beach where he would spend the rest of his life. Dad had a great love for the outdoors, from hunting crocodiles in Australia to “food fishing� with his native friends out of Alert Bay, to spending time with locals in Rankin Inlet. He enjoyed all walks of life and encouraged people to live life to the fullest. Dad will be sadly missed. He is survived by wife, Dora, daughter Karin (Gavin), son, Rolf (Veronica), grandson, Blake and daughter Monica. A special thank you to the staff at Comox Valley Senior’s Village for all of their care giving, kindness and warmth. A tea will be held at #5742, Island Hwy North (across from Island Truss) on Saturday, August 31, 2013 from 1:00pm4:00pm.

New NIC president will stay the course

www.campbellriverMirror.com www.CampbellRiverMirror.com

orth Island College (NIC) will continue to grow its healthcare and trades programs, international education, pathways to other postsecondary institutions and physical space for students. The college’s new president John Bowman just started his new position a few weeks ago, and he says his main aim is to build on the college’s successes. “North Island College is a very successful institution and an institution that’s of great importance to the region, to all of our communities,” says Bowman, pointing out the college has already made progress in many areas.  “So, really my vision is to continue to support and encourage the success the college has been having over the last number of years, and there’s certainly new opportunities that are going to present that we’re going to pursue.” Bowman was president and CEO of of the College of New Caledonia, which also has a selection of regional campuses, for seven years before he came to NIC to replace retiring president Dr. Jan Lindsay. He’s worked in the post-secondary system for 22 years. Bowman notes the two new hospital projects, in the Comox Valley and in Campbell River, are a driver for the college to increase its health sci-

ences programming, “so that’s going to be a big priority.” Trades programs will also continue to expand in the coming years, he adds, noting the muchdiscussed skilled trades worker shortage. NIC’s international education program is another area he plans to expand in the future. “We’re excited about the potential for international, both to bring students here, as well as to send our students overseas to gain international experience and learn about the world at large,” says Bowman, noting the program is relatively small, but it’s growing, and it’s financially self supporting. Bowman will also continue to build on agreements with other institutions established by Lindsay, such as the University of Victoria Dual Admission and Guaranteed Admission programs. Government funding is an ongoing challenge, says Bowman. “I think the biggest challenge we face is that the needs are far greater than the resources we currently have or that, frankly, we can realistically expect to secure in the short term,” says Bowman. “So, we’re under pressure from communities to do more and under the current fiscal environment our real capacity is shrinking so that puts pressure on us to be innovative and to find new ways to be more efficient and more effective — and we’re doing that.”

Securing special funding through contracts with other organizations and other sources is something Bowman plans to continue to focus on. Though tuition rates have risen each year for a number of years, Bowman points out NIC’s tuition rates are still low compared to other institutions. “No one wants to see tuition rates increase,” he says. “The thing that people need to know is that a collage education in particular, and college tuition rates, it’s the best value anywhere in terms of the benefit.” Bowman notes another challenge for the college is a lack of space, especially at the Comox Valley campus. “Here, we are basically bursting at the seams. We don’t have enough space, and we’re utilizing portable classrooms,” explains Bowman. “One of our major capital priorities is to

replace those portable classrooms with a new building — the teach-

a big priority. “We’d like to see it happen within the next

three years, which I think is a realistic timeframe.”

Women for Women Trail Mix Challenge funds education for Campbell River moms

Clinic will get you running in the Miracle Beach 5/10 K

Participants in a recent Miracle Beach 5 and 10 K run set off from the Nature House at the popular provincial park.

Building on the popularity of last September’s beginner run clinic, the River Runners Running club and the City of Campbell River’s Recreation and Culture Department will once again offer a beginner run clinic to train participants to run the Miracle Beach 5K or 10K event in October. Last year’s clinic hosted twice the expected number of participants, with 40 people signing

up. A participant in the 2012 clinic said: “I reluctantly took your Learn to Run clinic last fall at the insistence of a friend. I ached in my joints and the idea of running overwhelmed me. However, the instructors and other participants were so positive and encouraging. In the past year, I ran the Miracle Beach 5K the TC 10K and the Victoria Goddess 10K.” Interested? Mark your cal-

endars to be at the Sportsplex from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Saturdays, from Sept. 7 until Oct. 12. Each week the participants will head out in groups based on running speed and ability, and the clinic includes informative talks and presentations on clothing, stretching and nutrition. There is always plenty of good conversation and great support. Participants should be able

to run for 20 minutes continuously before registering for this clinic. The cost is $20, and registration starts on August 23. You can register in person at the Sportsplex or Community Centre or by phoning 250-9237911. For more information, contact the River Runners at crriverrunners@gmail.com or call the Sportsplex at 250-923-7911.

The 10th annual Women for Women Trail Mix Challenge and Kid’s Run will take place on Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Carihi Secondary School field. Since inception, the Campbell River event has raised $20,000 in bursaries to support single mothers enrolling or continuing their education at North Island College. Event organizer and founder Shelagh Germyn is excited to join forces with the Campbell River Women’s Centre and New Dawn House, both of which help improve the lives of women in need. “I felt it was important to involve other women’s groups in this initiative,” says Germyn. “We should all be working together and supporting each other towards a common goal.” In celebration of the event’s 10th anniversary, Germyn will team up with ultra-marathon runner and Campbell River resident Bob Wall in a 100 mile pre-run from Nanaimo to Campbell River. The pair will begin their run on Friday, Sept. 6 at 7 a.m. at the Nanaimo Women’s Centre and finish at the Women for Women starting line in time to kick off the morning race. Their goal is to raise awareness and pledges in support of the North Island College Foundation, the Campbell River Women’s Centre and New Dawn House. Registration in the Trail Mix Challenge is $35 per person and $25 for students. Race participants may choose the five or 10 km trail. Children may also participate in a short ‘fun run.’ Registration forms are available at the Campbell River Sportsplex, Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex, Shorerunners or on Facebook. For more information about the Women for Women Trail Mix Challenge, contact Shelagh Germyn at 250-923-1788 or visit the event page on Facebook at Women-For-Women-5k10k-TrailMix-Challenge-and-Kids-Run.
