A Ladysmith RCMP officer and bystander discuss the aftermath of a rollover crash that happened shortly before 8 a.m. on a sharp curve of Cedar Road near North Oyster Elementary School Wednesday. Wet road conditions were a likely factor in the crash. The woman driving the car was taken to hospital with unknown injuries. The curve is one of the Nanaimo region’s frequent crash spots that become more dangerous when rains lift a slippery mix of oil and rubber from road surfaces after a long dry spell.

Sanctuary lake drained to fix broken pipe By Chris Bush THe NewS BULLeTiN

Morrell Lake in Morrell Nature Sanctuary is about to be drained to repair a bent shaft on an emergency release valve. The valve, positioned about 20 metres from the dam that forms

the lake and about seven metres under water, can be opened to decrease the lake’s water volume in case of severe flooding or an earthquake. Patrick Ansell, Morrell Sanctuary Society director, said the problem first came to light during a recent test when the valve

cock proved really difficult to open. A team of divers was sent down to investigate the problem and found the 15-metre long shaft that opens the valve is bent about 2.5 metres above the valve body. u See ‘SANCTUARY’ /3

Businesses in the Harbour City are preparing for a Chinese tourist boom – beginning with language lessons. Downtown Nanaimo is banking on construction of a new $50-million conference centre hotel to drive up Chinese tourism with an estimated 70,000 visitors each year. It’s a major market, according to businesses and tourism organizations now taking steps to roll out the welcome mat. The Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association and Literacy Central Vancouver Island plan to boost cultural sensitivity by teaching shop owners and front-line staff Mandarin and Chinese business customs. Businesses are seeking new products to appeal to Chinese visitors and translated signs for tourists could be placed downtown. The first tour group will be brought to Nanaimo by hotel owner SSS Manhao this fall in anticipation of the company building its new hotel. It will be a test run for downtown shops, according to Cory

Hostetter, general manager of the DNBIA. “This will definitely be a learning experience to find out what we can do to make the visitor experience a little more pleasant,” she said. “If we think of [70,000] tourists coming throughout city ... that number is huge. Obviously we want to be as best prepared [as possible] to have them.” The City of Nanaimo unanimously approved selling its Gordon Street property to SSS Manhao International Tourism Group in July under the condition the new build is completed within three years. The company has already started to advertise Nanaimo as a destination for tourists and plans to eventually bring tens of thousands of Chinese visitors into the city for overnight stays. Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation CEO Sasha Angus said the market will be a “real asset” for the city but there is a lot of work ahead to make sure Nanaimo is ready for the visitor influx. Businesses are interested in the growing tourism market, but still have questions about how they can take advantage of the opportunity, he said, adding workshops in rudimentary Mandarin and business customs will help. u See ‘BUSINESSES’ /5

Strike threat looms over schools The pall of two possible work stoppages looms over the upcoming 201314 school year in Nanaimo school district. The Canadian Union of Public Employees and the B.C. Teachers’ Federation have been in the process of negotiating with the province and earlier talks have not yielded any deals. CUPE Local 606 President Rob Zver said there is a favourable mandate for a strike and the union’s provincial team will be going back to the bargaining table on Wednesday (Sept. 4). “As it stands right now, we’ve all taken strike votes. In Nanaimo-Ladysmith, we have initiated our mandate for 72-hour strike notice, so if called upon we would be able to re-issue another one to take the necessary steps based on what will happen at the bargaining table in the next few days that will come up in September,” Zver said. Mike Ball, president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, said negotiations with the province are set to resume in early October due to a court case involving issues from 2002, the year the government of the time stripped class size

repairs have been timed to follow the toad’s breeding season. Work is scheduled to start Friday (Aug. 30) when divers open the valve to drain the lake. Draining will take about three weeks before the water level is low enough to access the shaft and complete the repairs. Water levels in the lake should return to normal by January. The work will not affect access to the wildlife sanctuary.

A cross-Island E&N trail could help steer tourists into Nanaimo into the cycling tourism market, but municipalities need to get on board with a strategy, says city councillor George Anderson. Anderson wants Nanaimo city council to help lead local governments and the Island Corridor Foundation into discussions of a potential Island-wide E&N trail. Municipalities have talked about a major trail network for years, but until now communities have focused resources on building their own pathways. There has been no co-ordinated effort to link communities, despite potential benefits around safety, recreation and tourism, Anderson said. “I’m not asking council to put any money down … [but] this is something municipalities along the corridor have been talking about for a while and I want to see us actually have a dialogue on how to achieve it,” he said. “It [wouldn’t] only provide recreational ability, but commute between communities and potential revenues for tourism as well.” According to Nanaimo tourism experts, cycling tourism is becoming big business and a connector across the Island could help steer Nanaimo into the market. Dan Brady, chairman of the tourism leadership committee, said international and B.C. tourists are looking for places where they can book day cycles and longer-term trips between communities. The Capital Region’s Galloping Goose and Lochside Trails, for example, are an inter-city connector that allows people to travel from Swartz Bay to Sidney and Victoria. While the Harbour City has trails, Brady believes an inter-city connector could build on the momentum of sport tourism and make highways safer for cyclists and pedestrians interested in traveling across the Island. “I know a ton of people constantly ride back and forth to Victoria … and you are fighting traffic and almost getting run over,” Brady said. “The thought of the E&N being cycle-friendly … or a hiking route where people can [catch] the ferry to Victoria … ride up through Lake Cowichan and Duncan to Nanaimo – it would be world class.” Brady and others interested in an Island link say one of the biggest questions in a project of this scope would be funding. A single kilometre of E&N trail can cost between $200,000 and $500,000, according to the City of Nanaimo. Some areas of the E&N trail – including Nanaimo’s north end – also have trestles and steep rock cliffs that are expensive to build across. Anderson is set to start discussion about a new strategy for a cross-Island route during an open meeting Sept. 9.

plan and let parents know. Mainly we just ask parents to keep an eye on the news and as soon as we’re aware of anything parents need to know about, we’ll definitely let parents know,” Reimer said. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Sanctuary remains open during work u From /1 The valve itself appeared to be in good shape. “We don’t know how that bend occurred,” Ansell said. “It’s a straight rod about 40 or 50 feet long and theoretically nothing could bend it. It’s an inch (diameter) cast-iron rod, but something did. It could have been a log or ice – we don’t know.” Vancouver Island University uses Morrell Lake for biological research

since it is home to a wide variety of native amphibian and insect species that thrive there because there are no fish in the lake that prey on them. The last time Morrell Lake was drained was for valve testing in 2004. The outflow, some of which connected to the Chase River and Colliery Dams, from that test was minimal and went mostly unnoticed. Ansell said since Morrell Lake is a breeding water for the western toad,

and composition language from the contract. Teachers have not issued strike notice nor do they have plans to strike at the moment but the teachers’ union will be interested in what transpires between CUPE and the province. “Certainly we’re interested to see how it’s going to go and we’ll be on the outside looking in but if CUPE does decide to strike, teachers won’t cross the picket lines,” Ball said. In terms of the federation’s negotiations, Ball said he is hoping the province brings more to the table. “Unless the government brings more resources to the table, I don’t see there’s a possibility of a resolution. If they start to impose some form of 10-year deal, which they’ve been threatening, with our wages tied to the percentage of other groups of public service workers’ increases, really that’s not collective bargaining; it’s certainly not full and free collective bargaining, which I don’t think will sit well with teachers,” Ball said. “If they impose a 10-year structure … that wouldn’t be a positive. At the local table, we’ve been making progress and dealing with issues and been signing off some language and continued to have discussions with them.” Public schools in Nanaimo will have plans in place in case of any sort of disruption – a full strike by either union would mean schools

Canadian Blood Services continues to call for donors from Nanaimo and across Canada. Marcelo Dominguez, B.C./ Yukon communications specialist for Canadian Blood Services, says the non-profit organization would like to fill blood donation appointment slots locally over the next two weeks. “We’re trying to collect just over 900 blood donations and we’ve had great support, as we typically do in that part of Vancouver Island, but we’re still trying to fill about 100 open appointments,” Dominguez said. “If that could happen in the next 14 days, preferably before Labour Day, that would be terrific.” Canadian Blood Services is also looking to fill approximately 15,000 appointments nationally. “We have a national inventory system, so thankfully that helps us prevent any kind of issue.

If we ever need to have additional blood units to a particular part of the country, we can leverage that national inventory,” Dominguez said. “It’s a point of pride for Canada’s blood system; I think it’s actually terrific but having said that, we still have certain collection levels we want to maintain to make sure we can service our hospital partners and make sure we can deliver products as needed just in time.” He said filling the 15,000 appointments by Labour Day long weekend would be put Canadian Blood Services in good position. “Because of the nature of blood, it’s something we’re always in a constant demand for, simply just because red cells, for example, last 42 days, platelets five days, plasma can only be frozen up to a year. It’s like a carton of milk, you just have to keep getting new, fresh blood,” Dominguez said. The clinics run today (Aug. 29) and also on Tuesday and Wednesday (Sept. 3-4) of next week and people interested in donating can go to www.blood.ca or call 1-888236-6283 to find the closest clinic.

and hotdogs over a backyard campfire over the Labour Day weekend. Due to the recent rain and cooler weather, Nanaimo Fire Rescue has lifted the burning ban for ceremonial fires and residential backyard cooking fires as well as campfires in

CampfirE, CookiNg fire restrictions eased ahead of weekend.

Nanaimo Fire Rescue has good news for people wanting to roast marshmallows

privately owned and commercial campgrounds. Backyard burning, however, is still banned within city limits. A campfire ban has also been lifted in the coastal fire region due to decreased risk of wildfires.

Campfires cannot be larger than a half-metre wide by halfmetre high. A hand tool, such as a shovel, must be nearby, plus at least eight litres of water 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. For more information on fire restrictions, please visit www. bcwildfire.ca. For information on burning rules within the City of Nanaimo, please visit www.nanaimo.ca.

Businesses recognize financial benefits of tourists u From /1 The corporation plans to help businesses tap into the potential tourism windfall with new, translated marketing material and an online profile of the city. It is also mulling tourist signs in Mandarin to make the city feel more hospitable for its new visitors. Other potential changes in downtown Nanaimo include altered menus to appeal to the palates of tour groups

and new store products. Willow Friday, owner of House of Indigo Boutique, said she recognizes the potential for her business to benefit from the new tourism growth and is glad she’ll be able to tap into lessons in language and etiquette. She plans to open a larger store and wants to offer the right activities, gifts and attitude to pique tourists’ interest and persuade them to open their wallets.

“I think [this market] will bring in some big changes to the city ... obviously 70,000 [people] a year is going to be significant,” she said. “To not pay attention to that as a business owner would not be wise.” news@nanaimobulletin.com

RCMP hunts for suspect in robbery of Chuckwagon market in Cedar RCMP bagged the suspects involved in an attempted armed robbery in Yellow Point after their getaway car crashed in Nanaimo

on the weekend. The series of incidents leading up to the arrests started about 10:30 p.m. Friday when Ladysmith RCMP responded

to an attempted armed robbery at the Chuckwagon Market, located at the south intersection of Cedar and Yellow Point roads.

Police files A man walked into the store, produced a large knife and demanded the clerk

hand over cash. That plan fell apart when the clerk recognized the suspect and spoke to him causing the suspect to run out of the store.

Police arrived moments later and found a vehicle in the store’s parking lot believed to be related to the robbery. The driver departed at a

high rate of speed, followed by police who were unable to safely catch up with the car and broke off the chase. Police eventually caught up with the car about two hours later when it was involved in a crash on the 2100 block of Maxey Road in Nanaimo at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Mounties arrested two suspects at the crash scene, but not the man police believe is responsible for the attempted robbery. Charges related to the robbery are pending against a 45-year-old Nanaimo man and the 21-yearold Langford man who was driving the car. Police requested a warrant for the arrest of a 20-year-old Nanaimo man who is still at large. u The Independent Investigations Office B.C. determined a Nanaimo RCMP officer is not responsible for injuries a man suffered when he fell over a cliff on Skinner Street in June. The incident happened shortly before 2 a.m. June 29 when an RCMP officer, on foot patrol with the Bar Watch program, spotted a man who appeared to be urinating in a parking lot next to Club 241, according to the report the investigations office released last week. When the officer announced himself and shined a flashlight on the the man, he turned his head toward the officer while stepping away and fell almost nine metres over a cliff. The man sustained serious head injuries from the fall. The officer and his partner searched for the man and called an ambulance when they found him unresponsive at the bottom of the cliff. Witnesses that included the second police officer on patrol and two Club 241 employees verified the officer’s account of what happened and said that he was never in physical contact with the man prior to the fall. When interviewed, the man had no recollection about how he was injured.

Graham Bruce, ICF president, has launched a campaign urging the public to turn up the heat on VIA Rail, as the corporation remains mum on signing a passenger rail agreement. According to Bruce, the company hasn’t responded to a pitch for passenger rail submitted five months ago and the waiting game could put critical government funding at risk. Passenger service was suspended in 2011 because of unsafe rail conditions. It can’t be revived until VIA Rail inks a deal to take on the service, triggering the release of $21 million in government funding set aside for trestle and track improvements. ICF members had planned on securing the agreement before September so it could start construction, but with no response and the clock ticking, it’s now calling

on the public to pressure the Crown corporation. Government and industry officials, like Seaspan, have already sided with the foundation with calls for VIA Rail to go back to the bargaining table. VIA Rail spokesman Jacques Gagnon said the corporation is “more than happy to resume activities” with passenger rail, but it has given ICF detailed and specific conditions and none of them have been met. There are desires for a rail station in Victoria, maintenance centre and reassurance there will be no further increase in its operating deficit. “If you are doing a business proposal through your partner and you don’t hear back from [them] … it’s because you have to amend your proposal,” Gagnon said. “We are not negotiating this in the public domain, but we are stating there are fairly specific issues that need to be addressed and if they are not addressed ... how can we resume activities?” ICF and VIA Rail have been in on-and-off again talks for 12 months about passenger service, which the corridor foundation says could be key to sustaining rail on the Island. The corridor foundation – made up of First Nations and regional governments – believes Island communities could capitalize on significant economic benefits

of rail, from redevelopment to increased port activity and tourism. It’s a critical link between half a million people on Vancouver Island, said Bruce. But before the foundation can help unlock the Island’s rail potential, they need to ensure there’s an anchor service that can put any doubts of the longevity of rail to rest. Federal, provincial and local governments have offered support for track improvements needed to restore passenger service, but it’s contingent on VIA Rail and ICF’s operator, Southern Rail, entering into an agreement. Bruce is still confident a deal can be reached, but is concerned VIA Rail’s slow response could put funding in jeopardy. No government has threatened to withdraw dollars,

but there is money set aside for this year and 2014. The longer construction is pushed back, the less likely the funding will remain in reserve, Bruce said. The ICF president says the proposal they sent VIA Rail “isn’t rocket science” and the company had more than enough time to come back with some kind of response. The delay is very close to bad faith, according to the organization. “This is all about political will now – both from the standpoint of elected officials ... and the people of Vancouver Island,” Bruce said. news@nanaimobulletin.com

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers is concerned Canada Post is on its way to shutting down the retail postal outlet in Nanaimo. John Bail, national director for the union’s Pacific region, pointed to a similar situation in Campbell River where a new privatized outlet was built in close proximity from the long-time retail post office, with a store in between, and an outlet was shut down in Port Alberni. However, Phil Legault, media relations manager for Canada Post, said it will be status quo for Nanaimo. “We do not have plans at the moment to add a postal outlet in a retail location in Nanaimo,” Legault said. But Bail said the proposal for a new retail outlet was discussed during consultation with the union. “What they’ve done is they say they’re building a franchise outlet nearby the Nanaimo outlet – that’s going to take away all the business – then they shut down the outlet,” said Bail. “They haven’t put one in yet, they’re just serving us notice. What they say is, they’re giving us a chance to give them a business plan, but we’re not in any position to give them a business plan – they’re just notifying us that they’re intending to put a fairly large privatized outlet nearby the other outlet. “They give us a bunch of figures about how much business that franchise will take, which is usually similar to the amount that the corporate retail outlet takes in, and then they give us a street corner – they don’t tell us what location exactly, they just give us an area within seven kilometres,” he said. Legault said Canada Post stands to lose money if changes aren’t made, adding the company evaluates all of its post offices across the country regularly in order to ensure efficiency in its delivery system. According to the Conference Board of Canada’s Future of Postal Service in Canada report released this past April, the Crown corporation is projected to lose approximately $1 billion a year by 2020. Legault said from 2006-12, Canada Post is delivering one billion fewer pieces of mail and Canadians are using mail, parcel and delivery systems differently. “A lot of people are going online much more these days, whether it’s by e-mail or the payment of bills, people are moving so much towards the electronic means in communicating,” he said. “We’ve got to take a look at shifting with how our customers are viewing us and how our customers are using us.” Legault said people can comment about the future of the postal service at www.canadapost.ca.

EDITORIAL

Rail service support crucial Negotiations between the Island Corridor Foundation and VIA Rail to restart passenger service on the Island seem to have gone off the tracks. The foundation claims VIA Rail won’t return to the negotiating table, and doesn’t know why. VIA Rail, however, says that it laid out clearly to the foundation the list of conditions that it would take to restart passenger service and the foundation has yet to meet any of those terms. Until then, VIA says, there’s no point in negotiating. Both companies are pointing fingers at the other to take responsibility, with the foundation going so far as to ask the public to pressure VIA Rail. If the public is to be used as a political tool, it needs all the necessary information to properly evaluate the process. Based on claims by both sides it seems as though the public is missing key information. Regardless, it’s not the public’s responsibility to restart negotiations – that lies with the two companies involved. Last year, regional districts across the Island, the provincial and federal governments all pledged money to upgrade the rails and make passenger service safe – dollars dependent on passenger rail actually running on that corridor. As the bickering in the media continues, government support for passenger rail service dwindles daily, with politicians looking to other projects to support with much quicker payoff than what they’re seeing with the foundation and VIA Rail right now. The public is also looking for alternative uses for this valuable tract of land as people become more and more used to a lack of passenger rail and more apathetic as talks drag on. It’s time for all sides to stop placing blame on others and take responsibility for restarting passenger rail service on the Island. The longer they wait, the more likely rail service will simply be a nostalgic memory.

‘It’s like a carton of milk, you just have to keep getting new, fresh blood.’

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 British Columbia. 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 oilslick road. ◆ Alistair Taylor is managing editor of the Campbell River Mirror.

No one ignored in facilities plan To the Editor,

Re: School plan might destroy neighbourhood, Letters, Aug. 27. I would like to start by clearly stating that I speak only for myself and not for any group or body. I want to set a few things right regarding Jeff Solomon’s recent letter. I have never advocated for any single community. We have seen only too well the results of a board reacting to the loud shouts of one or two groups instead of doing what is best for all. Political pressure from one group or another have led to the dire financial and educational crisis that I see we are now in. A close to $5 million shortfall and the inability for a child to get all the courses he or she needs to continue at a post-secondary institution absolutely had to be addressed. Mr. Solomon claims that the city, and the board “... make a plan, don’t include those that will be affected, and even if everyone disagrees with it, keep to it at all costs.” All stakeholders were included in an invitation to take part. This means parents, staff, students, Snuneymuxw First Nation, the Regional District of Nanaimo, and unions. Most of whom accepted, and contributed. Mr. Solomon also is under the impression that “everyone” disagrees with this plan. Wrong again. Many people understand the need to put this house in order if it is going to, once again, offer excellent facilities for learning. Reinforcing the myth that “ youth will always be considered outsiders and never feel this is their place” is absolutely false. Cedar students were previously bused to Barsby and felt very much a part of the school family, and will again. There is no good time to move to another school, but we must, whether it be from Grades 7 to 8 or public to post-secondary schools. While there are advantages to smaller schools, multiple grade-split classes are not ideal, and children going to a larger school have different benefits and allow children to continue to go to school with all their friends and neighbours within their own community. Mr. Solomon seems to interpret not doing as some wish as being ignored. I have read every single piece of correspondence sent to me. I have spoken to Cedar residents personally, and over the phone. I have ignored no one. I must give credit to the Cedar group. They are fighting for what they feel is the best thing for their children. We all do what is in our children’s best interest without favouring one over the other. I campaigned on the issues and now must do what I feel is best for all 13,000 of my children.

Parking problems detract from summertime fun downtown To the Editor,

A friend and I were fortunate to attend the wonderful, and free, Summertime Pops By The Sea earlier this month. It was at the ever-lovely Maffeo Sutton Park, in Nanaimo. The weather was perfect and there was lots of free parking. When we arrived at the parking entrance at 5 p.m. (show was to start at 6

p.m.), we were turned away by a sign indicating the parking lot was full. I saw a sprawling parking lot with lots of unoccupied spaces, so I asked the attendant at the entrance what was going on, and he said that the spaces were being saved for people with disabilities. Being a good citizen, I moved along Comox Road and found a spot across

from the park. I didn’t spot a sign that said I couldn’t park there, so I did (lucky me I thought). Not so. Robbins Parking did its usual fine job, and ticketed me. I went back the next day, to see if there really was a sign. There was. The owner of the property made sure he was covered for every day of the week. The concert was a fundraiser, and everyone gave

something to the volunteers, who were collecting, to support this special event. We must be wary of taking advantage of anything we do in this city, even on a summer Saturday night, especially when we’re trying to attract visitors, and the rest of us to our downtown.

the city of Nanaimo should have better investigated ways to save money by converting its Zamboni fleet to electric power.

Taxpayers taken for Zamboni ride To the Editor, A recent council meeting showed glaringly how little the mayor and four of our city councillors think about saving us money. And how they follow whatever senior staff says like sheep in a field. Last year staff dictated that council spend close to $170,000 to buy a new electric Zamboni to clean the ice at one of our skating complexes. Council complied. Monday night staff asked council for a

lot less, just $30,000 to convert another Zamboni from propane to electric to extend its shelf life. And again, most councilors silently followed staff wishes and jumped eagerly into their pen. The truth of the matter, a year ago staff should have revealed the simple conversion project would be the best choice to save taxpayers almost $140,000 and there was no need to buy a new expensive ice cleaner. At the very

least the $170,000 could have been used to convert all six Zambonis in Nanaimo’s fleet, extending the shelf life of all the vehicles instead of spending the entire cash-load on just one new cleaner. Whoops. It should be graciously noted that councillors Bill Bestwick, Jim Kipp and Bill McKay questioned staff relentlessly for this momentous screwup.

Clippers get better with game action I BCHL TEAM looking forward to pre-season matchups this week. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Clippers are taking the next step toward a new season. The city’s B.C. Hockey League club is busy this week with four pre-season games in five nights. The club opened training camp last week and is continuing to turn its collection of hockey players into a hockey team. “We have a lot of speed and skill and we’ve also got some grind, too, so I think we’ve got the right mix of players here,” said Jayson Argue, veteran goalie. The first week of camp was a tough physical challenge, said veteran forward Mason Mitchell, so guys who were up to it showed themselves in a good light. The pre-season games, he said, will be another opportunity. “You don’t know anybody so you can’t really predict what it’s going to be like, who’s going to score, who’s going to do this, what line’s going to play the best,” Mitchell said. “I guess it’s just a big test when you get out there and it’s a surprise when you start to play.” The Clippers tied the Cowichan Valley Capitals 4-4 on Saturday in an all-rookie game at Lake Cowichan. The pre-season continued Tuesday and Wednesday with a home-and-home series against the Caps, and Nanaimo will play another home-and-home against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Friday (Aug. 30) and Saturday. Argue said the Clippers hope

The B.C. Football Conference has a new all-time winningest coach, and most of his wins came at Caledonia Park in Nanaimo. The V.I. Raiders’ Matthew (Snoop) Blokker earned his 84th career coaching victory on Saturday in the Interior, 37-27 versus the Kamloops Broncos. It improved Blokker’s regular-season record to 84-13-2. “Normally when you get one of those kinds of records, it just means that you’ve outlasted everybody…” Blokker said. “It makes me really proud, to be able to do it in less than 100 games. We got on such a run as a program.” Blokker won one B.C. championship with the Victoria Rebels, then won six provincial titles and three national championships with the Raiders. After Saturday’s milestone win, Blokker and his staff gathered for a photo that the coach said he plans to get blown up and framed. “[The record] gets put under my name – I look at that

as a coaching staff award,” he said. “Most of us have been together for so long and have been together fighting for every single one of those wins … I guess it’s a consistency and a work ethic that we preach and now here’s an opportunity for us coaches to be able to share that.”

He said he and his family are proud, but it’s the current season that’s mostly on his mind with his team 3-2 at the bye week. “I think it’s something down the road you reflect on a little bit more and enjoy a little bit more,” he said. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin Thursday, August 29, 2013

If the government let a giant foreign corporation buy up half of Canada’s water, you would be outraged. Then why are we letting them buy half of Canada’s newest prime airwaves? Like water, Canada’s airwaves are a limited, precious national resource. So precious, that the government auctions them off for billions of dollars. Now, the Canadian government’s auction rules will allow a giant foreign cellphone corporation to buy 2 of these 4 prime blocks – half the total! The cellphone companies most Canadians use can only buy 1 block, leaving you at a disadvantage. This rule could put half of this national resource under foreign ownership and control. Canadians should be outraged. In fact, the results are in and 81% of Canadians said no to special treatment for foreign corporations.*

PRE-SEASON starting up in Prince George.

The Barsby Bulldogs want to make sure that a long road trip is worthwhile. John Barsby Secondary School’s AA varsity football team begins its pre-season this Saturday (Aug. 31) in Prince George against Duchess Park. School isn’t back in session yet, but at this time of year, football players around the province already have a week and a half of practice under their belts. “We’re getting 100 per cent attendance at practice, guys are excited about playing football,” said Rob Stevenson, coach of the Bulldogs. The strength of the Barsby program means that the players – whether they’re returning to the senior team or moving up from junior varsity – are well-versed in ’Dawgs football.

GREG SAKAKI/ThE NEwS BullETIN

Barsby Bulldogs player Kalven Kellock, left, and his teammates practise Monday night at John Barsby Secondary School’s Canem Field. The AA varsity football team opens the pre-season Saturday (Aug. 31).

“You can see the carry-over from years past,” Stevenson said. “We’re working on a few new things with our systems, but there’s a lot they know. We’ve just got to get the rust off and get better at it and go

faster at it.” The coach has been analyzing “player combinations,” he said, figuring out which guys work well alongside each other. He’ll get a chance to test those combos against Duchess Park,

a team that possesses a lot of size and goes into 2013 as a favourite in its conference. The ’Dawgs will be hungry for a win; they’re sure travelling a long way to try for one. “Really importantly,

I’ve got a captive audience for 16 hours, so I intend to do a lot of teaching on the bus, football-wise,” Stevenson said. GRID BITS … Barsby’s first home game isn’t until Oct. 4. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Buchholz, Helmut Franz William July 25, 1928 - August 23, 2013

Helmut passed away peacefully early Friday morning. He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Irmgard; children, Ursula (Lester) Owre and Ralph (Grace) Buchholz; grandchildren, Christi (Jeff) Krawchuk, Nicole and Jennifer Buchholz; and great grandchildren, Erika and Erin Krawchuk. Helmut lived to travel. He travelled extensively with his wife throughout the world. Helmut also enjoyed gardening in his spare time. Helmut was a dedicated father and husband. Flowers gratefully declined. If you wish, donations may be made to Parkinson Society Canada. You will be sorrowfully missed by your family.

Ed Alexander passed away peacefully to be with his Lord on August 22, 2013, surrounded by his loving family. He is survived and remembered with deep love by his devoted wife of 66 years, Olly, and his children Ned (Sheila), Susan (Dan), Tim, and Leah (Brian). Missing their grandpa (Boppa) are Amy (Phil), Lily (Drew), Angela (Raj), Matt (Hayley), Faith, Tim (Meghan), Sarah (Luke), Michael, Charlotte (Michael), Emily and his three great-grandchildren Josh, Freya and Kiran. Missing him is his sister Marjorie. Ed was predeceased by his sister Winnifred and grandson Nathan. Ed was born in Prince George to Chester and Rita Alexander. There he met the love of his life, Olly, who he married in 1946. Prior to joining the Navy, he was a telegrapher with CN. In the Navy he rose to the rank of Lt. Cmdr. in an adventurous career seeing the world. Upon retirement he worked with the Town of Esquimalt in its housing restoration program. His love of the sea influenced his second retirement to Nanoose Bay and Parksville. He then worked with the City of Nanaimo helping people refurbish their homes. He also loved hockey, fishing and a good game of crib. Ed, a man of faith, and Olly joined the Christian Fellowship Centre in Qualicum Beach and eventually he served as Pastor for 11 years, retiring for the fourth time in 1993. He was thankful for the opportunity to provide leadership, fatherly support and loving encouragment for his church community. Most of all he intensely loved his family and all occasions that brought them together. His family would like to thank the church family and many friends for their loving support and prayers. Thanks also to the staff and volunteers at NRGH Palliative Care for their sensitive care in Ed’s final days and to Dr. Hancock for his concern and care for Ed over the years. A special thank-you for the loving, caring relationship of brother-in-law Norman Woodcock. A Memorial and Celebration of Life will take place at 2pm on Monday, September 2 at Christian Fellowship Centre, Qualicum Beach. We would be honoured if, in lieu of flowers, a donation was made to a charity of your choice.

Musicians have more in common than name The Gords perform at Simon Holt restaurant during hiatus from Ian Tyson’s band

T

hree guys named Gord will make Nanaimo their third stop on their western Canada tour. The Gords – Gord Matthews, Gord Maxwell and Gordon Lee Worden – who describe themselves as an adult contemporary, folk-based, vocal trio are performing at Simon Holt Friday (Aug. 30). That description might be a tad modest. “Adult” in this case really means there’s a tremendous depth to their vocal harmonies and guitar instrumentals distilled from a long and successful history in the music business dating back three decades and that has produced some incredible bios on the band’s website. Matthews and Maxwell appeared on four Ian Tyson albums recorded between 1998 and 2008. Maxwell and Warden are still touring and recording with Tyson. Matthews was a member of KD Lang and the Reclines – for those who remember Lang’s evolution from country punk to the smooth classic country swing style that characterized Absolute Torch and Twang – from 1983-90. Matthews has appeared on David Letterman, Saturday Night Live twice, Austin City Limits, the 1990 Grammy Awards and five times on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Maxwell was lead singer and bassist in One Horse Blue and wrote the songs Colour of Lover, Baby Don’t Cry and Hopeless Love, which became the first independent single to reach the No. 1 spot in Canada. Worden’s career goes back to

• LOWEST PRICES • QUALITY FRAMES • OUTSTANDING WARRANTY

the days of Sweeney Todd and Nick Gilder back in the early 1980s. His resume also lists work with Sue Medley, Mike Reno, Barney Bentall, Brad Johner and Lisa Brokop. The Gords formed out of three coincidences. They all have the same first name and all played with Ian Tyson, whose period of difficulty with his voice left a lull in their work schedules. “So we said, come on let’s make a band,” Worden said. “So, we had all these elaborate plans because Gord Matthews lives in Edmonton and Gord Maxwell lives in Coquitlam and I live in Oregon, so we were thinking everything was going to be great. We were getting all excited, but then there was that moment when we actually met in Maxwell’s basement and we starting singing that we really knew we had something worth fighting for because our voices just naturally blended so well and you can’t manufacture that with auto-tune and all those gadgets. It either blends or it doesn’t.” Their western Canada tour will help promote Pick, the album that came out of that meeting and ongoing collaboration. “It’s a year old,” said Worden. “We haven’t really played all that much so it’s still fresh for us.” Worden plays guitar and all the keyboards on Pick. “We were trying for a Crosby, Stills and Nash or The Eagles kind of sound, but basically we just wanted to make songs that we really wanted to play live, so if it sounds retro it’s because we’re retro, baby,” Worden said. Sort of, but their sound is

uniquely their own. Combined with Matthews’ lead guitar style – silky country licks, blended with a jazz flavour a bit reminiscent of Lee Ritenour – it contributes to a recipe for a smooth, more contemporary sound. “He’s really exciting to me because we both sort of play lead guitar, but we can’t play each other’s licks at all,” Worden. “Matthews, with KD Lang and that, was in on the ground floor of that new western kind

of movement (country punk) and I played in a punk band – the first recorded punk band on Vancouver Island, apparently – called The Mix.” Since all of The Gords are song writers they had plenty of material to lay down on Pick. “We’ve actually got a lot of material for future projects,” Worden said. Those projects will have to wait now that surgery has restored Tyson’s voice.

Choir director taking on larger ensemble It’s a cliché of course – “their loss is our gain” – but in this instance it’s very true. For Island Bel Canto Singers, their loss is artistic director Lionel Tanod. He will be moving on to the Malaspina Choir as interim director beginning January 2014. For the Malaspina Choir, its gain is a talented and dedicated musician. Since the fall of 2005, Tanod has devoted considerable time and energy to Island Bel Canto Singers, an allwoman’s auditioned community choir. Under his direction, the choir steadily improved its level of performance and established a solid following in the com-

munity. It auditioned for and was accepted as a participant/ competitor in the International Choral Kathaumixw in Powell River in 2012 – a real achievement to be included in such a prestigious event and a tribute to Tanod’s success with the choir. Before moving to Nanaimo in 2004, Tanod was director of music at Ashbury College in Ottawa for 20 years. There, he was responsible for the entire music program including choirs, bands, theory, music history and appreciation. Tanod immersed himself in Nanaimo’s vibrant music scene. He directs Harbour City Singers, a mixed-voice choir

he founded and presents as a seniors course at Bowen Park Recreation Centre. Tanod was also a founding member of Nanaimo Sings! Choral Festival Society. In the meantime,

There will be an opportunity to briefly showcase a special skill (singing, dancing, etc.) or contrasting monologue if desired; however, there will not be an accompanist present.

CAEA members are asked to bring their membership card to the audition. Mann has more than 30 years’ experience in professional theatre across Canada as an artistic director, director, actor, manager, dramaturge,

teacher, business representative and writer. He has directed or acted in more than 100 professional productions and has extensive experience in the development and production of new works for the stage. He has been artistic director for Sunshine Theatre in Kelowna, TheatreOne, Workshop West Theatre Edmonton, and Kam Theatre in Thunder Bay, Ont. He is currently working at the Evergreen Cultural Centre

in Vancouver and has recently taken over as TheatreOne’s new artistic director. Please bring an updated hard copy photo and resume to the audition. Please also send photo and resume to Mann by e-mail at ad@theatreone.org or mail to TheatreOne, 150 Commercial St., Nanaimo, B.C., V9R 5G6. Deadline to submit is Sept. 20.

Community groups support habitat To the Editor,

Habitat for Humanity MidVancouver Island is in the midst of building its 13th and 14th homes in the mid-Island area, a duplex in downtown Nanaimo. A major part of our fundraising success is the local businesses who have contributed to this project through donations, both in the form of financial contributions and time. Thank you to RBC, Coast Realty Group, the Home Depot Foundation, Mid-Island Co-op,

Windsor Plywood, TD Bank and the Brick for raising $90,000 for Habitat, as well as putting together volunteer teams to help construct the home in the coming months. Habitat also had the Young Professionals of Nanaimo participate in their first volunteer build in August. We have just over $90,000 left to raise and are looking to our community to help make this project a reality.

Heaslip raises bar for care

I

ChIldreN beNefIT from weightlifting event next month.

Rhonda Heaslip is helping to raise the bar for children’s medical care in the province. She started the campaign Raise the Bar for Kids to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Foundation. Nanaimo’s Studio Kitchens recently donated $500 to help support Heaslip’s goal. Heaslip, the winner of multiple national powerlifting championships and the current ational and Commonwealth powerlifting record holder, created the Raise the Bar for Kids campaign. She’s hosting an event Sept. 7 at 2 p.m. at Woodgrove Centre. She’ll lift more than 158 kilograms. The weight lifting event is to raise more awareness about her campaign. Her goal is to raise $15,000 for the foundation. “As a mother of three and grandmother of three, I want to help the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation. I am positive that everyone knows someone who has either been a patient in, or had or knows a child who

was a patient in this wonderful life-saving hospital,” said Heaslip, in a press release. “I want to do the heavy lifting, so the kids don’t have to.” After high school, Heaslip became a certified airframe technician working in search and rescue squadrons with the Canadian Armed Forces. Following her military experience, she became a journeyman carpenter through a four-year apprenticeship program with Local 527 in Nanaimo and worked for several years in that field.

KNOW THE RULES

Her fitness interests led her to power lifting during her military career and, despite years of bringing home medals from competitions around the world, she has never stopped trying to raise the bar on her own abilities. “At age 53 I broke all my own national records again and totaled 15 kilos more than I did at age 36,” she said.

Compact sport-ute comes packed with spirit I MERCEDEZ BENZ SUV gets refreshed stying for 2013.

BY LORNE DRURY he baby of the MercedesBenz SUV lineup, the GLK only joined the fleet in 2010 but already it is getting its first makeover in 2013. It will take a GLK-class aficionado to notice the changes outside although there are a few, but where the big news lies is under the hood. New for 2013 is a new fourcylinder turbo diesel engine that is simply loaded with torque. Mercedes says this is the most powerful fourcylinder diesel engine in the SUV world, putting out 200 horsepower while delivering impressive fuel economy numbers of 7.2 litres per 100 kilometres for combined city/ highway driving. It is available in the GLK 250 BluTEC 4-Matic. For those who prefer to go the gasoline engine route, the GLK 350 4-Matic sports a 3.5L direct injection V6 engine that makes 302hp. Mercedes-Benz Canada sells more than 5,000 GLK models a year and expects sales to spike even more this year with the introduction of the four-cylinder diesel. For the 2013 model year,

Mercedes-Benz’s smallest SUV, the GLK-Class, has been around since 2010 and gets a facelift for 2013. The major change is two new engine choices, including a 2.2-litre twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel engine.

the GLK again features short overhangs, an upright front end, a steep windshield and taut roof line. There is more use of exterior chrome as accent pieces and as part of a new front grille treatment that has the Mercedes emblem front and centre, much like on other passenger car models. The back end gets a newly designed bumper and tail-

light look with LED lights and chrome skid plate incorporating twin tailpipes. Driver and passengers are coddled in luxury as the interior enhancements on the GLK-Class result in a premium look and feel. The direct shift selector for the seven-speed automatic transmission is now on the steering column, creating space in the centre

console for cup holders, which can be concealed with a retractable cover. The dash has been completely redesigned with poshlooking dark ash trim in the GLK 250 and aluminum in the GLK 350. A six-speaker sound system is standard and part of the infotainment setup featuring a 5.8-inch colour display and

Bluetooth interface for handsfree phone operation. My driving partner and I had an opportunity to test both the GLK 250 and 350 and both had the optional command navigation package with its larger seven-inch display with rearview camera and enhanced voice command. A premium package adds Sirius satellite radio, parking assist, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, media interface and power tailgate. Optional safety features are included in a driver assistance package that includes blind spot assist and lane keeping assist. I drove the gasoline-powered GLK 350 on the first day and quite enjoyed it. It is quick (0-100km/h in 6.5 seconds, according to MercedesBenz), quiet and smooth. It handles well, more like a car than an SUV like others in that compact SUV segment. There is a bit of body roll on hard cornering, but otherwise it is a very composed vehicle except when you encounter the worst potholes that winter can throw at you. The electric steering is light, but does offer feedback. The GLK is not for everyone. But for those who want the Mercedes badge and the prestige that comes with it, the GLK makes driving a whole lot of fun.

Latest Ford Edge sharper than ever

I

CROSSOVER utility vehicle suits families.

BY ROB BEINTEMA The Ford Edge seems such a fixture in the Ford stable that it’s easy to forget that it is still a fairly recent addition to the lineup, a purpose-built crossover utility vehicle that was first introduced as a made-in Canada model for 2007. The Edge is a natural stepping stone to the larger, full-size Flex crossover but, with roomy tworow, five-passenger dimensions, the Edge itself offers plenty of family-friendly accommodation. It slots neatly between the Escape and Explorer, two former truck-based SUVs that have also converted to the crossover formula with unibody con-

struction and all the inherent qualities of a car-like ride, improved handling and better fuel economy. The Edge was eagerly adopted by Canadian consumers, earning top-selling numbers in its initial years but Ford did not hesitate to make changes halfway through the first generation lifespan, adding more diversity and choice to the lineup of this important midsize family hauler. For the 2011 model year, major revisions included an exterior redesign, a better quality interior build, new technologies, new powertrains and new levels of performance. A re-engineered chassis and upgraded suspension came wrapped in refreshed bodywork with a new, more prominent grille,

added LED running lights and new 17- to 22-inch wheel styles. New four-wheel disc brakes added better bite and a firmer feel, along with allowing for added brake-related features such as hill start assist, trailer sway control, hydraulic brake assist and a segmentfirst adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support. The Edge’s standard 3.5-litre V6 engine with twin independent variable cam timing was upgraded to 285 horsepower (up 20hp) along with improved fuel efficiencies. Since those major revisions there have been some other minor yearly adjustments including aerodynamic tweaks for 2012 and some packaging changes and new colours for 2013,

The 2013 Ford Edge AWD, a made-in-Canada solution for family transport needs, offers dynamic crossover styling, five-passenger comforts and a full list of amenities.

including the new metallic red paint job on our tested model. The Edge comes in a choice of four trim levels – SE, SEL, Limited and Sport. The base SE comes with the 3.5-litre V6 and in front-wheel drive only. Our 2013 Ford Edge tested here, comes in Limited trim with optional AWD and the standard 3.5L V6. This may be the base

motor but it offers enough oomph to satisfy. Acceleration is brisk and handling and ride qualities are more than acceptable for this class of vehicle. The 3.5-litre V6 engine is rated at 11.8 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 7.8L/100km on the highway. Inside, the Edge Limited features a handsome cabin

dressed in leather with wood grain accents. Ford does interiors well and the Edge design blends technological sophistication with ergonomic simplicity. The smooth, iPhone-like surfaces on the instrument panel and touch screen will not be to everyone’s taste but this driverconnect technology replaces most of the

traditional vehicle buttons, knobs and gauges with touch-sensitive LCD screens and five-way controls like those found on MP3 players. In sum total, the Edge provides a wide variety of available price and content levels, a good blend of amenities and a viable made-inCanada solution for families.

The next-generation Audi A8 featuring new MatrixBeam LED headlights will bow at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. The headlights sense oncoming vehicles and mask sections of light accordingly.

New A8 will be ahead of its time

The new-generation Audi A8 should be a technological marvel. The vehicle, which makes its debut at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, combines revisions to its weight-optimized, predominantly aluminum body with a raft of technological advances including new MatrixBeam LED

headlights and an upgraded lineup of engines. The visual appeal, visibility and active safety of the new generation A8 can also now be enhanced by new optional headlights. The high-beam function uses 25 individual LEDs per unit that can be switched on and off or dimmed

individually depending on the situation. This enables the headlight system to react extremely precisely to other vehicles while always brightly illuminating the road. When the on-board camera detects other vehicles ahead, the headlights mask the relevant sections of the high beam by dimming or shutting off individual diodes. Very bright illumination is preserved in the remaining zones. The lighting system in the A8 uses predictive route data from the navigation system to adjust the distribution of light in response to the current driving situ-

ation, and can recognize and act on route data, such as corners and road classifications. The A8 offers a choice of seven gasoline and TDI engines, the majority of which have been revised to improve performance and efficiency. The luxuriously equipped Audi A8 L W12 quattro occupies the top rung in the A8 line-up. The lightweight engine with its W layout displaces 6.3 litres and produces 500 horsepower.The 520 hp S8 is at the top of Audi’s sports sedan rung. Its 4.0 TFSI engine blasts it from 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds.

Unlocking car doors? There’s an app for that

Photo submitted

Volvo has been honoured with this year’s Techies award for Best Car Safety System for its cyclist detection.

Car manufacturer cares about cyclists

I

TECHIES AWARDS praise safey system in new Volvo autos.

Volvo has earned industry recognition for its revolutionary cyclist detection system after winning the Best Car Safety System award at the 2013 BusinessCar Fleet Technology awards - the Techies. A cyclist swerving out in front of the car is one inci-

dent type that is addressed by the pedestrian and cyclist detection, which is now available on the all-new V40, S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80 models.  Cyclist detection has been developed after much research and development as the natural extension to the award-winning city safety autonomous emergency braking technology that is now standard on all new Volvos except the XC90.

The advanced cyclist detection sensor system scans the area ahead. If a cyclist heading in the same direction as the car suddenly swerves out in front of the car and a collision is imminent, there’s an instant warning and full braking power is applied. The system is another working step towards Volvo’s pledge that by 2020 nobody will be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo.

When the OnStar RemoteLink mobile app launched, it was the first app from an automaker to offer drivers remote access to their vehicle. Now RemoteLink can claim the distinction of being the first remote app from an automaker to work on all four primary smartphone platforms – iPhone, Android, Blackberry and now Microsoft Windows phones. RemoteLink, which is available for nearly all GM models, has been downloaded more than 1.7 million times. The most common use of the app is checking vehicle data such as oil life, tire pressure and fuel level. These requests get made nearly 600,000 times every month. The app will support Canadian English and French Canadian language options. RemoteLink’s key-fob based features – remote start, lock, unlock and horn and lights activation – will be standard for five years on all new GM vehicles. This launch means that GM drivers with select Windows phones will be able to access RemoteLink key-fob features as well. RemoteLink connects to a driver’s vehicle in a secure fashion, requiring a username and password to log in and a four-digit PIN to make a remote vehicle command. OnStar subscribers can download the application at onstar.com.

Honda be-leafs in green goals Honda Canada will plant more than 18,000 trees across Canada. For every Honda ATV and lawn-care product sold between April 13 and July 31 this year, a tree was purchased on behalf of Honda’s customers. The Forest Recovery Canada program will plant trees native to their chosen area nationwide. Tree planting will take place this fall through to spring 2014 and will greatly contribute to the beautification of local communities.  “We make every effort to ensure the preservation of the environment in all of our corporate activities,” said Jeff Stralak, a senior manager at Honda Canada Inc.

Beefs & bouquets BOUQUET To Medina of A Wee Cupcakery for the excellent sugar-free birthday cake you made for us. You made one diabetic (and all his guests) very happy. BEEF To the same thief who is stealing gas atop Duke Point ferry terminal. You got me twice in two weeks. Thanks for the drill hole in my tank. You will be caught. BOUQUET To the young man who stopped on the shore to call out to me sitting on a rocky outcrop surrounded by water. He kindly and considerately pointed out that if I sat there much longer I would be swimming back to shore rather than rock hopping as the tide was coming in.

BEEF To the recycling depot that claims they are a non-profit society but pays their manager just under $9,000 a month.

gas stove. Have been without an oven now for more than five weeks. Service what you sell.

BOUQUET To the staff at the north end Home Hardware store. When all the other hardware stores offer next to nothing in customer service, you always come through, over and above what is expected.

BEEF To Nanaimo bus system for not having extra buses for Bathtub fireworks and the Snowbirds. You keep saying transit is going to get better – when?

BEEF To the City of Nanaimo for not doing anything about the dogs in Mansfield Park. A large sign on every entrance – no dogs allowed in park. BOUQUET To the people who operated the free street library on Dover Road and Lewis Road. It was just a little box but it was always full of good books. It will be missed as you move on.

BEEF To persons who stole an ornate concrete bird feeder in the early hours of Aug. 9. The lady who owns it is enduring chemotherapy for cancer. BOUQUET To Tara McNeil from The Shape You’re In for a great summer exercise program. The running and stairs were an excellent way to keep in shape for the summer. My personal goals were achieved, thanks to you, and I feel great. BEEF To the person who stapled underwear to the post on Lantzville Road. Please take it down. BOUQUET To all the generous people of Nanaimo who donate their hard earned money to the charity I fundraise for. Not only do you share your money, you often confide your or your loved one’s stories of neurological illness. BEEF To the music instructor who cut my granddaughter’s solo from the choir concert at the last minute. BOUQUET To B.C. Ambulance Service and staff for being extremely helpful and completely understanding in situations where humanitarian and compassion is required. May karma reward you and keep you safe.

BEEF To the beefer on dumpster divers. Why don’t you leave your empty bottles for them? Don’t you realize how much they save the environment by collecting and returning bottles from all over, while making a bit of income for themselves? BOUQUET to the wonderful staff at Concise Systems Corp. I went in looking for advice to simplify my multi-media violence prevention school presentations for Haven Society and they did it free of charge because that’s just the kind of communityminded local business they are. BEEF To the drivers who think Stewart Avenue is a racetrack – especially the one who killed our kitten on a Saturday night. BOUQUET To the captain on B.C. Ferries who pushed me in my wheelchair off the ship, wouldn’t leave me alone and waited with me for my ride. When the ride didn’t arrive after more than 30 minutes and couldn’t be reached by phone, the captain gave me a ride home. The service I have received on my crossings has been great and this was exceptional.

BOUQUET To John, Brad and all the other wonderful mechanics at Hammond Bay Road Midas for recently replacing my burnt-out indicator light for free and at a moment’s notice. I’ve been there a few times lately and have always received exceptional service. BEEF To health officials for handing out medical marijuana exemptions a little too freely. Hypochondriac dope-smoking idlers should be subjected to the same social discrimination as every other pothead. BOUQUET To Brian, Sunny, Bill, Ralph and Fred and the cleanup crew of Milne’s Roofing for their exemplary work ethic,

skill, honesty and considerate manner of installing a new roof on my home.

BEEF To ICBC Driver’s Licensing branch. I have a problem with a two-month waiting period to get young drivers tested and a wait of another two months if they were super nervous and failed their test. The ICBC road test form states that they are able to re-take the test after two weeks. BOUQUET To Colliery Dam Preservation Society. Thank goodness someone has the courage to say “no” to this spendthrift council. BEEF To the people in the car that drove through Tim Hortons drive-thru at Nanaimo North Town Centre. They dropped garbage out of their car, then proceeded to throw out the paper bag when they were arriving at Mostar Road and the Parkway intersection. BOUQUET To Nanaimo’s geography whiz kid, Jacob Burnley, chosen to represent Canada at the National Geographic World Championships in Russia and bringing home second place. BEEF To the people fishing north of Neck Point who thought it was OK to chase down and follow two killer whales. It is illegal and unsafe to approach these animals especially in a high-powered, speeding boat and you were much closer than the minimum 100 metres required distance. BOUQUET To all the helpful people. Rolf and Maleas at the Columbia Bakery and for Donna and Karl, you are always there for me. The world could use a lot more people as nice as you. BEEF To the person who spray painted the obscenity at Georgia Avenue Elementary School. Staff removed it before the new, young students would see it.

Youths aid conservation projects

I

TeaMS HeLP with work in the field.

The Nature Trust of British Columbia hires crews each summer to tackle a wide variety of conservation activities on properties across the province and learn valuable skills for future employment. Training includes first aid and Bear Aware as well as the safe handling of power tools. “Having the chance to work outdoors and make a positive impact on the environment is very rewarding,” said Dawson Clermont, member of the Vancouver Island HSBC Conservation Youth Crew. “My family has a long history in the conservation field – my dad working in the field for 30 years and my mom on the Garry Oak ecosystem recovery team -- so I’ve had a bit of interest in that sort of thing for most of my life.” On Vancouver Island, the crew has worked on conservation properties from the Nanaimo River Estuary and Buttertubs Marsh to Lazo Marsh and the

Salmon River Estuary. “I’ve learned a lot about many different species of birds and plants both native and invasive,” Clermont said. “Being able to perform hands-on field work has really been beneficial to what and how I’ve learned.”

When asked about his most challenging tasks, he said, “Some of the Scotch Broom removals, especially in wet weather, became a bit difficult as well as the Spartina removal because of the very dense and rocky ground.” The crews perform on-the-ground work

as well as attending workshops from specialists in the field on topics such as bird counts, and forest and wetland ecology. They also contribute to the local community in a variety of ways. “We feel like most of our work contributes to the communities,” Clermont said. “But in particular we’ve installed many helpful signs, coordinated broom removals, maintained trail systems and many other things that benefit not only these communities but the environment.” Clermont recently finished his first year of engineering at the University of Victoria and plans to attend the renewable energy program at Camosun College. As a leading non profit land conservation organization, the nature trust is dedicated to protecting B.C.’s natural diversity of plants and animals through the acquisition and management of critical habitats. Since 1971 the trust, along with their partners, invested more than $80 million to secure more than 70,000 hectares across British Columbia.

Car show boosts Hospice campaign Nanaimo Community Hospice recently accepted a donation of $2,800 from the Redliners Car Club from its Classic Car Show on July 14 at Montana’s Cookhouse. The money come from the entry fees of the more than 175 custom-built hot rods, muscle cars and antiques on display. Last month, Hospice moved into its new home at 1080 St.George Cres., just a year and half after beginning its fundraising campaign. “At Hospice we feel very fortunate to have so many groups from the community like the Redliners Car Club approach us about donating funds from events they host,” said Wendy Pratt, executive director, Nanaimo Community Hospice. “It is because of this Hospice has had a successful fundraising campaign and we are confident that we can raise the remaining $200,000 needed to reach our goal.” Expand the Heart of Hospice fundraising campaign has been a success due to the generosity of the community, but Hospice is still looking to raise another $200,000 toward its new home. Donations can be made through Canada Helps online at www.nanaimohospice.com, at the new Hos-

Credit union shaves heads for fundraiser Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation and Coastal Community Credit Union are once again partnering to raise money for the foundation’s Stock the Lockers campaign. The foundation’s campaign goal is $50,000, which will go toward purchasing school supplies for youngsters in need within the Nanaimo school district. Back by popular demand is the credit union’s head shaving fundraiser, which takes on a tiered approach this year. If Coastal Community successfully raises $15,000 by Sept. 5, six Nanaimoites will be donning new haircuts – including four Coastal Community employees, as well as city councillor and foundation director George Anderson. “By participating in this fundraiser, I’m encouraged to know that students within our district will continue to be able to reach their full potential,” Anderson said. “NLSF does so much for our community. The foundation creates equal opportunity and empowers students within the district by making it possible for them to attend post secondary.” Donations to Coastal Community’s head shaving event can be made at any of its Nanaimo branches or online at nlsf.ca. Donations of $20 or more are also eligible for a tax receipt. The head shaving takes place Sept. 5 at Diana Krall Plaza during the Stock the Locker’s wrap-up barbecue, starting at 11:30 am. Child poverty remains a major issue in the community, with the Nanaimo school district repeatedly ranking among the highest in B.C. in terms of poverty-stricken students. The foundation’s Student Support Fund was created four years ago to get money directly to assist vulnerable students. For more information, please visit www.nlsf.ca.
