Father of two: Early indications are incident that killed man near Lake Cowichan was an accident

he Salt Spring Island man who died after being struck by a falling tree in a logging site in Lake Cowichan Monday has been identified as 41-year-old Ryan Burch. The Gulf Islands Driftwood newspaper reported Burch worked full-time on Vancouver Island as a faller. He often commuted to the job site from a fifth-wheel trailer parked in Crofton, usually leaving before dawn to reach his workplace. “He used to work all day, come back to coach and run a practice for his kids’ baseball team,” Ken Byron, Burch’s father-in-law, told the Driftwood. Burch leaves behind his wife Chelsea, four young children and many caring family members, friends and acquaintances. “It’s very tragic. There’s a family out there dealing with this news,” said Lake courtesy Gulf Islands Driftwood Cowichan RCMP Cpl. Ryan Burch, with his sons. Larry Olson. He confirmed police have handed the investigation over to the B.C. Coroners Service and Work Safe B.C. Barbara McLintock of the coroners service agreed with Olson early indications show nothing to suggest the incident was anything more than accidental. “We believe it was accidental and not criminal,” Olson said Wednesday. Burch was working along the Meade Creek Mainline on Meade Road near Lake Cowichan when he was struck by a tree just before 1:30 p.m. on Monday. “They were clearing a right-of-way on Meade Road,” said Work Safe B.C. communications officer Megan Johnston. “Investigators arrived on scene Monday and what they’re looking for are any violations of occupational health and safety practices as well as other safety factors. They will also have an eye out for ways to prevent similar incidents.” Johnston said their investigation could take anywhere from three weeks to a month. She confirmed Mount Sicker Logging as the prime contractor at the site. Initial police reports stated Burch had been working for Hancock Forest Management. A Mount Sicker representative reached by phone declined comment.

North Cowichan resident Donna Skene is hopeful her sunflower bloom will land her in this year’s Cowichan Exhibition Fair as the tallest sunflower entry at approximately 14 feet in height.

he Shawnigan Residents Association applied to the Ministry of Environment yesterday for a stay of contaminated soil dumping in the Shawnigan watershed until its Aug. 26 appeal of the dumping permit is heard. It is the first step of many expected as opponents attempt to reverse a 50-year provincial permit allowing South Island Aggregates to dump five million tonnes of soil into a quarry off Stebbings Road, south of the lake. B.C.’s Environmental Appeal Board will also hear from the Cowichan Valley Regional District during a 30-day window ending Sept. 21, the start of an appeal process that could take months. SRA has prepared for a costly fight against the permit issued Aug. 21 by environment ministry bureaucrat Hubert Bunce. SRA’s Jason Walker didn’t have estimates handy about how much “incredibly expensive” legal bills will total from lawyers Sean Hern and Robert Anderson. “We’ve submitted a notice of appeal, and we’re asking for an oral appeal so witnesses can be called and examined,” he said. more on page 15 bchonda.com

Obesity research is going in the direction of the microchip. In the future, it’s hoped that a microchip can be implanted in the vagus nerve. This nerve sends hunger signals to the brain. The chip may be able to send another message to override the vagus message and, in essence, control appetite. Still a little way in the future.

xercises like swimming, jogging and cycling are aerobic because the muscles demand a continuous stream of oxygen to burn the energy stored in their cells. Strength-training exercises like weight-lifting are considered non-aerobic since the energy is derived mainly from biochemical reactions not oxygen. But both types of exercises are important to good health.

In Canada, over 3 million women and one million men suffer from migraine headaches. Sixty percent have more than one attack per month. One of the many triggers of migraine headaches is dehydration. You can avoid that trigger by drinking more water and limiting caffeine intake. Simple things, but just may help. Pharmacists and doctors encourage you to take most antibiotic medication for a set length of time. It is based on research on how long it takes to eradicate an infection. This varies with the bacteria and the antibiotic. So to get the most out of your antibiotic prescription, take it for the number of days the doctor orders.

Negotiations renewed as support staff strike hangs over schools

UP FRONT

CUPE Local 606 has a strike mandate like the rest of its provincial brethren in school districts, but is taking a wait-and-see approach with negotiations with the B.C. government. “There will no interruption on the first day of school,’’ said Rob Zver, who was elected Local 606 president in June. The union represents “inside’’ workers in

Back to school has new look for local kids

Cowichan as well as members in the LadysmithNanaimo School District. “We will be getting information depending on what the provincial government and our bargaining team is able to come up with,’’ said Zver. “The last thing we want to do is to have to interfere with student education.’’ On the other hand, Zver pointed out employees

haven’t received a raise in four years and simply want an equitable agreement to those being reached by the government and other parties. “We’re just looking for fairness,’’ said Zver. Negotiations broke off in August and Education Minister Peter Fassbender is hopeful an agreement can be reached without any impact on students when talks are held for three days next week.

Duncan Staples general manager Jeff Forsyth (bottom) and divisional sales manager Marc Lunn stock the shelves at the local store this week. Staples is currently busy with its annual school supplies fundraiser Stock the Lockers, which helps provide returning students with basic necessities, including school lunch and breakfast programs for children in need.

New era: Restructuring requires a great deal of work from School District 79 staff during the summer

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

S

chool District 79 staff feels it’s done its homework during the summer and is well-prepared to open the book on a new chapter in the local education system following the restructuring process. Extensive groundwork kept employees busy throughout July and August to make sure everything was ready for the opening of schools Tuesday in a new-look district. To refresh your memory, the district has gone to an elementary K-7 and secondary 8-12 model. “We’re really excited about getting past the uncertainty stage and getting to Sept. 3,’’ said superintendent Joe Rhodes. “We think we’re as well-prepared as we can. “There’s so many things we’re excited about getting started and we hope seeing positive moves forward. We need to get going and that’s what I’m waiting for.’’ A.B. Greenwell, Yount, Koksilah, Somenos and Ecole Mill Bay elementary facilities were closed and there’s been a considerable shuffling of students. Instituting bus fees ranging from $200 to $400 per family has also required major work preparing schedules. Rhodes said bus registration is typically between 2,500 and 2,800 and he expects the numbers for 2013-14 to be at the high end. “As far as I know, it’s kind of a normal year in terms of registration,’’ he said. “But we won’t know till next week.’’ On top of that, the actual work inside the schools from maintenance and building personnel to get everything ready has been extensive. “Our crews really did a yeoman’s service to get us to where we are Tuesday,’’ said secretary-treasurer Bob Harper. “All of our staff have been moved into their new facilities.’’ The district did not want to have a lot of renovation and construction work still going on when school starts. “One that came to mind if you keep doing things the same way you’ll get the same result so we’ve done things quite differently. It was a real opportunity for us to try things differently with our staff, ’’ said Director of Operations Monroe Grobe. “We had bus drivers and custodians just

give it 110% all summer long. It’s exciting to see what was accomplished.’’ Mount Prevost and George Bonner schools were the big tasks, Grobe said. Work included wrapping up the Spooksville TV series filming, which provided some challenges. Bonner and Frances Kelsey were also used as sets for a Disney movie. Shooting just wrapped up at Bonner this week. “Something completely new and not something I would recommend throwing into a summer like we’ve had,’’ said Grobe. The district is most proud of the evolution of the old Koksilah elementary school site into the Koksilah Trades Training Centre. “Right now if you went over there, you would say there’s no way you’re going to start courses down there on Tuesday,’’ said Ron Nunweiler, District Principal of Careers and Distributed

Education. But there will be heating and ventilation, and welding programs starting, with hairdressing, carpentry and much more to follow soon. “In a nutshell, it’s rolling along,’’ said Nunweiler. “We’re pretty excited about it.’’ Official trustee Mike McKay said those completing the programs will have an opportunity to step into some of the high-paying jobs that are becoming more in demand and they won’t be carrying heavy student loan debt. “It’ll be a lighthouse for the valley, it’ll be a lighthouse for the province,’’ said McKay. The district still needs to sort out how services may need to be tailored to the exact number of students who show up to classes next week. “We’ll use the September month as a transition month as that whole attendance issue settles down,’’ said Harper.

t seems to take teenage brains a little longer to kick in during the morning so School District 79 has opted for a slight change to school starting and finishing times. “The entire district was revamped,’’ said superintendent Joe Rhodes. “As a general rule, the elementary (students) are getting out earlier and the secondary later. It varies from school to school how much it’s adjusted.’’ All secondary schools are now starting at or close to 9 a.m. The biggest change is at Cowichan Secondary School where the Grade 10-12 students used to begin classes at 8 a.m., but they will now be in school from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Cowichan Secondary dual campus principal Charlie Coleman noted the change not only supports research on teenage brains, but was also made to find efficiencies in the transportation system. “We start one hour later. Lunch is one hour later. Lunch is 15 minutes longer to accommodate the dual campus (Quamichan),’’ he pointed out. “So the end of day is one hour, 15 minutes later. Our new times align closely to most high schools in Victoria. “We won’t know the pros, cons or challenges until we try it.’’ Coleman added a prior newspaper ad cited an incorrect lunchtime at Cowichan. It actually runs from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Elementary starting times range from 8:20 a.m. at Khowhemun, Maple Bay and Ecole Cobble Hill elementary to 9 a.m. at Palsson and Chemainus elementary, with all the other schools falling in between. The full list of the starting and finishing times is listed on the School District 79 website. “It’s a work in progress,’’ said official trustee Mike McKay. “We need to be sensitive to change.’’

Major upgrade coming to Rotary Park

owichan Bulldogs’ football players wagged with happiness as $314,000 in taxpayer improvements to Duncan’s Rotary Park were unveiled Wednesday. “It looks better and everything,” said Bulldog Travis McDonald, 15, after Minister of State John Duncan and Mayor Phil Kent hiked funds for fencing, irrigation, turf improvements, bleachers, lighting, bridge replacements, and water fountains in the busy riverside park used for

football, soccer and other sports. “Overall, this will help out,” McDonald said. Duncan remembered living on nearby Marchmont Street as he announced Ottawa’s $157,000 from the federal Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund. “This will have a long-lasting, positive impact,” the chief government whip and Vancouver Island North MP said, noting economic activity and jobs should spring from the local funds. “We need an ongoing commitment to infrastructure in Canada.” Kent and Rotary Club president Mike Lee also cheered city and Ot-

tawa cash to upgrade Rotary fields beside Fish Gut Alley. “The football clubs are very strong,” said soccer coach Kent. “This is a very well-used facility.” City staff noted Robin Pederson from Construction Drilling donated approximately $10,000. That involved use of the equipment and piping to install foundations for the park’s overhead lights. The only bill Pederson submitted was $2,500 to cover his staff wages. The park upgrades twin city hall’s ongoing drive to create a liveable community, the mayor said of the parkland donated by the Rotary Club in 1966.

The Creation and Care of Gold Jewellery Materials used traditionally for jewellery and other ornaments are gold, silver, copper, tin, zinc, nickel and platinum. The jewellery maker of today uses mostly gold - with various combinations and mixtures of the metals mentioned. Any of these metals in their pure form are too soft or brittle to support a strong or complex design structure, but when any of the metals are combined in an alloy, they develop a tensile strength and hardness. The percentage of alloy metals added to pure gold determine quality, colour and price of the finished jewellery product.

There are many mixtures of metals which would actually change the colour slightly in one direction or another. Price is determined by the pure gold content and the difficulty in producting the alloy. Caring for jewellery is just a matter of gentle common sense. When taking off chains, fasten clasp to prevent tangling while being stored. Flat chains should be fastened and hung to prevent kinking or breaking. Wipe all jewels with a soft cloth, both before and after wearing to avoid contamination with perfumes, hairsprays or cosmetics. Discolouration of one’s skin by gold jewellery is caused by either skin secretions, perspiration and/ or contact with chlorides and sulfides. The coast areas produce mostly chlorides. Fumes such as smog, produce a dioxide and phospate which will also tarnish gold of a lower pure gold content. Higher karat golds, white gold and platinum are usually resistant to corrosive actions. Jewellery that has gemstones or diamond settings must be checked and cleaned once or twice a year by a reputable and reliable jeweller to previent stone loss. Care and purchase of gemstones will be covered in a later article. Enjoy your jewellery and wear it in good health!

Suck up all the changes and let the kids learn Back to school: All the shuffling and uncertainty needs to be pushed aside in the classroom

C

hange is never easy. And it will be return to school marked by many changes for the Cowichan Valley School District this year. Middle school students are making early adjustments to high school environments. Students who attended recently closed schools are adjusting to new schools entirely. Schools are being used for completely new purposes. Consider Mount Prevost (housing the curriculum that used to be at DunLet the kids can Elementary), Quamichan (now a campus of Cowichan Secondary), adjust in Lake Cowichan (now Grades 4 to 12) stability and and Koksilah (home to the new trades program) as just a start. support Then there is the issue of the new fee for transportation and the new timetable, not to mention the shuffling of staff needed to make all this work. On top of that, there is the uncertainty of a new teachers’ contract, the spectre of a support staff strike and the pending fall election to replace a school board that was fired more than a year ago. One would be naive to expect anything other than a fair amount of grumbling to accompany all this. Politics have the potential to dominate the agenda in our halls of learning this year and that would be a shame. With the transition that has happened it would be best of the kids to adjust in an environment of stability and support. It’s been a pretty good summer for Cowichan school children, full of sunshine and the finest things the Cowichan Valley has to offer. Let’s transfer that to our fall classrooms as best we can.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: Lake Cowichan’s new nurse The case against

The case for

Those pushing for health care improvements in Lake Cowichan have had nothing but positive things to say about the help and support they have been getting from the Vancouver Island Health Authority. The addition of a nurse practitioner to the community’s resource base will address many of the issues caused by the flight of the Lake’s doctors to greener pastures.

Lake Cowichan will be getting a nurse practitioner sometime later this fall.

Your old TV experience ain’t what it used to be Jay Siska

I

went on a bender for two nights in a row this week. And no, it’s not what you’re thinking. I got back into watching all the series television I’ve missed out on — an addiction I’m sure more than a few readers can identify with. Earlier this month, I lost a few days of my life watching all three seasons of The Walking Dead. Then I decided I needed something with — no pun intended — a little more bite. I ended up with Netflix’s House of Cards. Bye-bye Monday and Tuesday night, and welcome back to that familiar place where you’re considering whether staying up until 2 a.m. will be a good idea, just so you can just finish the season. I have a busy schedule. I also have a laptop

and a smart-phone, and no cable television. There’s Netflix, YouTube, and a host of other places to go for film, TV, and other media that cost very little or nothing at all (and I’m not talking about torrents, which I don’t use.) House of Cards star Kevin Spacey recently spoke at the Edinburgh International Television Festival. His talk not only eviscerated the North American TV model in two key points, but outlined what he feels is the future of entertainment media in the broader sense. “Give people what they want, when they want it, in the form they want it in, at a reasonable price — and they’ll more likely pay for it rather than steal it,” he said. By my experience, this is true. Why take the time to download 12 episodes from a torrent site, when I could simply pay the meagre cost of a subscription Netflix is an inexpensive subscription-based streaming service) and start watching right

A nurse practitioner will be a valuable asset to the lake, adding a professional, capable voice to help address a number of ailments in a convenient fashion. But the simple fact of the matter is a nurse practitioner is not a doctor. And what the Lake Cowichan area needs are doctors. Ideally the community should strive to acheive a community health care centre model like Ladysmith’s.

now? Secondly: “The audience has spoken. They want stories. They’re dying for them.” So essentially, content is king. If you give your target audience a top-notch product and make them passionate fans of what you do, they’ll happily support it as long as you don’t price yourself out of the market. In the clips I saw of Spacey’s talk, he touched on the other aspect of the show’s success: the people creating it wanted the freedom to tell their story and not be hampered by both the “pilot episode” model and schedule of commercial breaks used by standard television. Netflix has no commercials, so House of Cards episodes vary in length from 40-ish minutes long to 50-ish minutes. It’s also a subscription service so the content of the show is free from the constraints of television censors.

The result? An outstanding show garnering nine Emmy Award nominations, including best drama series and, as Variety reported, “making history as the first time that television’s top awards have recognized a program delivered online as equal in quality to the best that TV has to offer.” Is this concept the future? Maybe yes, or maybe not completely. Headed in the right direction? Absolutely. How can I be sure? All I’m thinking about right now is getting back from work and watching those last two episodes I couldn’t last night. Freedom for both the creator and the consumer, is the reason why.

The new school year comes with change

It’s time we all realized how important our watershed is

Dear editor If every small voice in defense of the environment does count as your editorial (Aug. 9) suggests, then the power of a chorus must truly bring transformative change. The new improved control protocol for the Cowichan Lake weir discharge is a matter of good public and environmental policy. Cowichan water sustains and nourishes every aspect of our collective well-being. As neighbours, we need to share responsibility for enlightened water management. We must staunch every leak, conserve every drop, and learn to be profoundly mindful of this vital resource. At times, we must even sacrifice private convenience for the common good, and do so with magnanimity. By the same token, it is time for private forest land operators to recognize the responsibility they owe to downstream neighbours by improving their practices. Over many decades, industrial logging has inflicted tremendous damage to the upper reaches of the Cowichan watershed. The loss of full-profile, richly biodiverse, mature forest ecosystems has led to a cascade of hydrological difficulties. For example, upslope runoff has become more rapid, or flashy, and cumulative sediment loading in the lower Cowichan means that river channels require dredging at great public expense. Soils that once cloaked uplands, nourished forests, and stored water have been swept downstream where they now choke fish habitat and increase the flood hazard. The thick verdant forests that once sheltered melting snow and slowed the release of water through the seasons are now but a thin and impoverished shadow, unable to protect essential watershed processes. The good news is this decline in hydrological function can be reversed. Determined changes in forest management practices can eventually restore to us a healthy watershed. It is time we all joined this choir. Roger Wiles North Cowichan

cases, very educational as well. All the participating merchants in the centre and the Mill Bay Historical Society are to be most highly commended for their creativity, ingenuity and sense of humour, as well as the hours of labour in producing these incredible figures. Voting for the best in several categories was virtually impossible as every figure was amazingly unique and uniquely amazing. The Big Kahuna in charge of the weather also seemed to get into the spirit of the Old Daze: not a drop of rain the entire 10 days that would have ruined some of the figures. Apparently the Daze may happen again next year even bigger and better. Can’t wait. Don’t miss it. Thank you so much to all involved for a most enjoyable entertaining way to promote the area.

simple smoke and mirrors. Along with a hefty wage, CVRD senior management receive a generous benefit package, expense account and a pension plan. In the private sector the bottom line of profit and accountability are the driving factors. Do your job or get fired. However, in the cash-for-life lottery that is the CVRD, Mr. Jones is not accountable for the $1.3 million boondoggle that is the ECO Depot. Instead he gets a big fat raise. I was surprised to discover Debra Oakman, the CAO of the similarly sized Comox Regional District made $161,000 in 2011. That is $18,000 less than Warren Jones for the very same job. Even though the numbers are not out for that area yet, it would not surprise me to see she did not receive the same $20,000 increase. Mr. Jones and the rest of the senior brass have honed their skills of talking in circles, delivering the usual rhetoric and wasting taxpayers hard-earned money with no accountablity. Perhaps upon retirement an appointment to the senate seems imminent. To put things in perspective, President Obama’s Chief of Staff makes only $172,000, a whopping $23,000 less than Mr. Jones.

CVRD staff job looks like a lottery for life

Dear editor I applaud Director Bruce Fraser on wanting to cap senior management wages at the CVRD. However, nothing short of a rollback seems in order. After reading the Public Bodies report, I was astounded to learn CVRD CAO Warren Jones made $179,000 and was then further rewarded with a shocking 11% increase to round up his wage to $199,000 from 2011 to 2012. To add insult to injury, many other management and exempt top wage staff members received an increase of six to 11% as well. The long-standing argument of having to pay top dollar to employ qualified staff and justify it against the private sector wages is

elcome to the 2013/14 school year, a time during which we will activate significant changes throughout our school system. Those changes were initiated to allow the district and its community to deliver on its highest priorities for student learning. Throughout the restructuring work, there has been tremendous effort and good will contributed by staff, by parent representatives who have advocated on behalf of their school communities, and by families impacted by the changes. I particularly want to thank those staff whose hard work and skill this summer has meant that our schools are ready for start MIke McKay: up. Not every improvepositive impact ment is fully completed, but it is remarkable to see the magnitude of the transformation since the restructuring decisions made in May. I also appreciate the support of families as many students settle into new routines, new school communities and changes to transportation services. The fee structure, while new to us, is in place in many B.C. districts and we have learned a lot from their experiences. Staff will be monitoring and adjusting as needed to support a transportation system that meets family and community needs within a sustainable financial envelope. It is also important to acknowledge that daily schedules for some schools have been adjusted to accommodate the transportation efficiencies. Those changes may impact, either positively or negatively, some students beforeor after-school work, extra-curricular or home commitments. We appreciate your patience and engagement in work that will be done at the school level to mitigate inconvenience where possible. Throughout The Road Ahead community discussions last year, there was no question that our priority in Cowichan Valley School District must be to allocate resources to support student learning. I am confident that as this school year begins, we will see the positive impact of the decisions that were made: more focus on early learning support; increased resources for our most vulnerable learners; attractive and current trades and careers learning; and, attention to literacy throughout the system. On Tuesday, more than 7,500 students will arrive in our schools with all the hopes and dreams kids have every September for new friendships, new learning and new adventures. They will be met by staff who have the skill and the capacity to engage them in a relevant, dynamic and positive learning environment: the kind our youngsters need and community deserves. I look forward to continuing to work with the staff and community during the term of my appointment. Mike McKay is the official trustee for School District 79, Cowichan Valley.

DATELINE: COWICHAN

1983: welfare

1983: jobs

by Ann Andersen

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 11

The Cowichan Valley Unemployed Committee, led by Ken Brown, called on the provincial government to commit itself to long-term funding of work programs for the unemployed hit by local mill closures and forestry job losses.

1983: economy

According to Ken Brown, if the federal government hadn’t stepped in to fund a provincial government program for several hundred local jobs under the community recovery program, hundreds more people would be on the welfare rolls.

Government NEED projects are valuable, not only because they employ people but also because they bring long-term economic gain to the area, said North Cowichan’s municipal forester Dave Haley.

erry Giles’ history in local politics has been long, steady and discerning. “It’s time the south end talked about incorporation,” the regional district chairwoman said during an interview in August 1983. Taxpayers would get a better deal for their money — and more autonomy in decision-making — if the south end formed its own municipality, she said. She proposed a municipality of South Cowichan, a region that would be bigger than North Cowichan. At the time, she said the people of the south end were not adequately or fairly represented at the regional district level. “We have to look at a better way,” she insisted. Her proposal had two options: a new municipality that would include electoral Areas A (Mill Bay), B (Shawnigan Lake), C (Cobble Hill), and D (Cowichan Bay) or all those areas plus Area E (Sahtlam) and the city of Duncan. Giles didn’t expect opposition from Duncan which has always firmly rejected any thoughts of amalgamation with North Cowichan. Her plan would be more attractive, she said, because it offered the city “room to grow.” At present, she said, Duncan was being virtually swallowed by surrounding areas.

Ken Evans dealership relocating near the Cowichan Commons as Flagship Ford Nov. 1 target: Customers should benefit from the amenities of new 24,000-square feet Don Bodger

T

he countdown is on for Ken Evans Ford. A clock inside the dealership is counting down the days, minutes and seconds before it sets up shop as Flagship Ford in a new location near the Cowichan Commons. The target date for opening is Nov. 1. “New location, new name, same great team,’’ said Ken Evans ownerpresident Vic Scudder. The Scudder family kept the Ken Evans name intact for 10 years after taking over the dealership. “Ken built the place. It was his dream,’’ said Vic Scudder. But now it’s the Scudders’ realization of a dream with the pending opening of the new building. It’s been a relatively quick process actually, since the groundbreaking at the end of February, with light now at the end of the tunnel. Paving in front of the new building was just completed last week. “We’re going from 13,000 square feet to 24,000 square feet,’’ said Vic. “We’re going from nine service bays to 15, which will also offer five noappointment necessary quick lanes.’’ Scudder said the relocation of his dealership basically creates an auto

We wanted to make sure we made life as easy as possible for our customers.’’ Vic said a move has been three years in the making, including seeking a suitable location. Now that it’s close, “it’s really exciting,’’ said Bernadette.

Vic Scudder said the new location will even offer an electric-vehicle plug-in station among many amenities. “I think customers are just going to be really surprised,’’ said Bernadette. “It’s really based on the customer experience. It’s a real comfortable environment.’’ Part of the hype surrounding the new location will be the chance to win a 1949 Ford convertible. It’s currently on display at the TransCanada Highway location. “It’s an original from the factory, completely restored,’’ said Vic. “It runs like a clock.’’

B.C. Liberals boast job creation as job one Happy Labour Day B.C. Jobs Plan: Province says one million openings by 2020 Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

J

ob creation remains the government’s top priority. This was the reassurance offered recently by Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour, Shirley Bond. That and the promise of a hefty goal of one million job openings by 2020 in sectors including liquefied natural gas, mining, forestry and others. “Tremendous economic opportunities lie ahead for our province — opportunities that will translate into one million job openings,” Bond said earlier this month. She’s referring to a plan published in September 2011 titled Canada Starts Here: The B.C. Jobs Plan. What’s promoted as a living plan for creating long-term jobs and investment in B.C. and strengthening the economy through low taxes

for families and business, controlled spending and balancing budgets, and new investment in skills training, is the cornerstone of the government’s goal. “Since the release of our B.C. Jobs Plan, one new mine has opened, five more are under construction and six existing mines have announced expansions,” said Bond. “The five LNG plants that are planned are expected to deliver over $1 trillion in GDP benefits to B.C. by 2046 and LNG means more than 75,000 new jobs throughout the province, once the five proposed plants are fully operational.” The strategies of the jobs plan leverage B.C.’s advantages in eight key industry sectors (forestry, mining, natural gas, agrifoods, tourism, transportation, international education and technology), “to enable job creation, maintain investor confidence with fiscal discipline and ensure our workforce will meet the needs of the future by encouraging and improving skills and trades training throughout the province,” states the government’s website. Of the one million job openings ahead for folks, the government assures 43% will need trades and

The Liberals take on their record: When the B.C. Jobs Plan was introduced: • 2,270,300 people were employed in the province. As of today, 2,309,000 people are employed in the province. The difference is 38,700 more people working. • 1,747,300 people were employed in full-time positions in the province. As of today, 1,830,900 people are employed in full-time positions. The difference is 83,600 more people in full-time positions. • The unemployment rate in the province was 7.5%. As of today, the unemployment rate is 6.7%, below the national average of 7.2%.

technical training. That’s where their Skills and Training Plan comes in. “(The plan) represents Shirley Bond: fundamental opportunities change to how we prepare British Columbians for the jobs of tomorrow,” reads its website. “The Skills and Training Plan is the result of numerous conversations with industry, employers and post-secondary institutions. To find their needs, conversations took place through regional workforce tables, sectorbased tables and through one-onone conversations. “The plan ensures British Columbians can take advantage of the incredible job opportunities today and in the years ahead, and help address the rising shortage of workers.” The plan is built on a $500 million annual investment in training British Columbians for the jobs associated with economic growth. In addition, the plan includes investing $75 million to improve training facilities and equipment. “Aboriginal participation increased 103 per cent between 2006 and 2011,” its website indicated. “In the past year, the number of women participating in apprenticeship programs has increased by five. “Since the Industry Training Authority was first established in 2004, the number of apprentices has doubled in B.C., with 32,000 people in the trades training system today.” Page 14, the Opposition responds.

they want most on the job is a Red Seal ticketed tradesmen. “What they’re trying to do is break trades down into components so they can reduce cost for industry but it has not been working.” The Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program was established more than 50 years ago to provide greater mobility across Canada for skilled workers. It represents a standard of excellence where tradespersons are able to obtain an interprovincial endorsement on their provincial/territorial certificates. The Routleys strongly suggest the government reinstate B.C.’s involvement in that program.

Employment for men older than 25 was up by 2,700 jobs while women in that age group lost 6,700 jobs.

s recent surveys indicate job losses and part-time employment dips, Cowichan’s NDP MLAs Bill and Doug Routley are calling for immediate action. “Right now the issue of youth and employment is becoming a crisis, and a chronic problem,” said Nanaimo-North Cowichan’s Doug. “We have jobs without people, and people without jobs.” Routley’s referring to a recent July 2013 Labour Force Survey — particularly, the net decline of 11,700 jobs in July and part-time employment dropping to 17,800. Government officials maintain dips are likely due to typical monthly fluctuations. But that doesn’t cut it for the Cowichan Friday, September 2, 2011 Friday, September 2, 2011 duo. “I think with the minister’s spin, people would be more appreciative if they’d take Friday, September 2, 2011 more responsibility,” said Doug, noting more focus should be on assisting postcollege grads into the work place.

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 15

Ministry: Shawnigan should not worry from page 1

“We’re fighting our own government, and they have deep pockets; the burden of this (cost) is on the backs of residents.” Shawnigan Lake Director Bruce Fraser signalled the deck was stacked against 300-odd folks who made submissions to the MOE opposing the treatment plan. “The process is only sensitive to technical material. Public concern was not relevant,” he said. “This was not Hubert Bunce’s problem; the government set the legislation in motion.” Bunce and Environment Minister Mark Polak were unavailable to talk to the News Leader Pictorial. However, the ministry’s Jennifer McGuire explained Bunce outlines his reasons for issuing the permit

— and the conditions governing it — in a 20-page letter. The ruling, McGuire explained, was based on provable data supporting the proposal concerning treatment, safeguards, monitoring and more. “The weight for issuing a permit is the same for denying a permit,” she said. SIA must meet a list of ministry guidelines on site refuse discharge, water treatment systems, settling ponds, treatable materials, holding areas, weather protection, erosion, dust and odour control, and more. Sampling of incoming and treated soil, ground- and surface water, and air quality to provincial standards, plus quarterly and annual environmental reports, are also stipulated. Ministry agents visit high-risk

facilities a minimum of once a year, McGuire said, more if noncompliance is suspected. The ministry can levy $1 million fines per infraction, tickets, remedy orders and more, she explained. That’s cold comfort to residents fearing water pollution and drowned property values. Still, Saanich-area resident McGuire answered ‘No’ when asked if she’d be worried by Bunce’s decision if she lived in Shawnigan. SIA announced last week it would begin using what will be the island’s largest contaminated-soil treatment facility immediately. If an appeal succeeds, the EAB would provide directions about any soil processed during the appeal. A response to the stay application was pending at press time Thursday.

ocal photographer Kurt Knock is showing just how patience pays off in his latest photo exhibition: Kidding Around. “A while back I was asked to do another photo exhibition at Coffee on the Moon. This is where I had my first-ever photo exhibition and this new one will be my third time there,” explained Knock. “At first I couldn’t think of what to do that would be new and interesting. Then I thought, September is back-to-school month, and kids.” That, and the fact the Duncan resident had a number of ideas for kids’ photos he wanted to try. “One of the first challenges I faced was finding a time to do these photos. For the summer look I wanted, I needed to be shooting around sunset (around 8 p.m.). But this is pretty late for little ones and this led to some challenging situations with kids up past their bedtime.” This is where patience came into play. “I learned to just let things happen and not worry.

Canadian boy creates some American Fiction

ON STAGE Bringing a great Canadian to life Pat Lepoidvin was born in rural B.C. and nurtured in Scotland, The Maritimes and the Yukon. Yet it is the American part of his soul he chases in his latest album. That album, American Fiction will be the focus of his show tomorrow in Duncan.

“The son of an American-born artist, LePoidevin has held dual citizenship since birth, yet has never felt different from any other Canadian boy,” his promo material states. “In search of his half-American identity, LePoidevin teamed up with his best friend from childhood and fellow Patrick Roy enthusiast Lewis Smith.

“Together, they wrote about ten small American towns, drawing inspiration from their own experiences in rural Canada. Accompanying the songs is a book of short stories written by Smith.” LePoidevin plays the Duncan Garage Showroom, Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Call 250-748-7246.

Arrows of Desire: One-man play profiles Tommy Douglas, the father of Medicare Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

“Courage my friends; ‘tis not too late to build a better world.” - Tommy Douglas

T

courtesy Gregg Perry

Veteran West Coast actor John Nolan returns to the valley stage this week with his acclaimed one-man exploration of political icon Tommy Douglas.

he guy CBC viewers voted The Greatest Canadian will be immortalized in Duncan next week during actor John Nolan’s bioplay Tommy Douglas: The Arrows of Desire. Nolan’s chore was researching then cramming the vast accomplishments of Canada’s late father of medicare (1966) — and two-term (1972 and ‘74) Nanaimo-Cowichan NDP MP — into a play reflecting the Baptist minister’s magnetic personality. Results appear in his one-person, two-hour play debuting locally at the Mercury Theatre. “It’s a tale about an honest, genuine person,” Nolan, 62, said from home in Victoria. “I had to figure out where the platinum was in the gold.” Douglas has had some 70 stagings after thespian-lifer Nolan spent two decades scouring Tommy’s life for the script premiered on Douglas’ 100th birthday, Oct. 20, 2004, in the former Saskatchewan premier’s hometown of Weyburn. “I honestly believe in what Tommy had to say,” Nolan said of the founder of Canada’s unemployment insurance and pension plan. “He’d tell the truth, and often suffered for it during elections. “Some people get excited hearing things Tommy talked about — it’s a call to arms.” Richard Hughes, Cobble Hill’s former director, heard that call before he saw Nolan’s play in Victoria. “What Tommy talked about is just as relevant

today,” Hughes said of the “pragmatic democratic socialist” who sat on his lap for a 1977 interview at CKAY radio after the station’s mike broke. “He stood for things; he fought, fell, and got back up. Tommy didn’t launder his comments or positions to win favour of his opponents.” Such as doctors fearing lost income under universal medicare. The NDP’s first leader (1961) created the publicly owned Saskatchewan Power Corp., and Canada’s first publicly owned automotive insurance service, called the Saskatchewan Government Insurance Office, and other Crown corporations. The frugal politician also forged laws allowing unionization of public services, and Saskatchewan’s Bill of Rights that ushered the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights. That’s why Hughes called Douglas a fierce advocate for downtrodden folks. “We need that kind of commitment and unselfish politics now.” That idea shines through Nolan’s play. “It’s an education with Douglas, unplugged,” Nolan said of “channeling” his legendary character, who was actor Kiefer Sutherland’s grandfather. “He tells some jokes, and talks about his life and things that went right and wrong. “Tommy was just one of those people you felt good about being around.” Your ticket What: Tommy Douglas; The Arrows Of Desire When: Sept. 5 to 7, 12 to 14, 8 p.m.; 2:30 p.m. Sept. 8.

She could always find the humour in any situation and provided unwavering support and stability to her family. She was a loyal, humble person whose goodness and generosity was an example to us all. She has left the world a better place; “If ever there was a person who belonged in heaven, it was Bea.� Thanks to all those people who compassionately cared and supported Bea during her lengthy illness at home; the Nurse Next-Door Team( especially Karen and Debbie)and the many others for their devoted care over the years . Thanks to Dover House for their kind support in her final month. In true Bea fashion, we will be having a celebration memorial tea at Arbutus Ridge Golf Club (3515 Telegraph Rd, Cobble Hill) on Sunday, September 15th, 2013 at 2pm to 4pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bea’s favorite causes- a charity that supports children or animals.

Caps conclude exhibition season with two versus Victoria

owichan Valley Capitals are 1-1-2 after four B.C. Hockey League exhibition games. The Caps split a pair of games with the Clippers this week, losing 3-2 at Lake Cowichan Tuesday night and winning 5-3 at Nanaimo Wednesday.

The team concludes exhibition play Friday at Juan de Fuca against Victoria and hosts the Grizzlies Saturday at Cowichan Arena. The regular season starts next weekend with the second-annual Showcase tournament at Chilliwack. The Caps play Prince George Sept. 7 and Trail Sept. 8. The Caps brought their roster down to a more manageable number by sending Nathan Deyell and Mitch Crisanti to the

Dauphin Kings of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for future considerations. Meanwhile, Caps’ owner Cory Wanner has extended his season ticket offer until game time Saturday at 7 p.m. Wanner will pay the first $100 on any season ticket purchased up until that time. That will amount to a cost of a mere $197 season ticket for adults, $145 for seniors, $120 for students and $39.50 for children.

rounds of 87 and 86. Young Emily Adams of Mount Brenton was the low net runner-up. She sports an eight handicap and came in at 146 after rounds of 78 and 84. Georgina Hermans of Cottonwood, also an eight-handicapper, finished at 148 with rounds of 81 and 83. Susan Kubisheski of Mount Brenton also tallied a 148 low net when her 23 handicap was factored into scores of 92 and 102. Laurie Randall of Uplands, who sports a 10 handicap, was fifth in low net with a 149. She shot 85 and 84. The tournament marks the end of a long tenure for organizer Darleen Michell and husband Rick, who coordinates the results. “I’ve been doing it for 12 years,’’ said Darleen. “We turned it into two days 12 years ago.’’ The tournament was an immediate success after the switch. “We had 112 (players) with a waiting list,’’ said Michell. It’s been a bit of a struggle to keep the numbers up for a variety of reasons. Most tournaments are experiencing declines. “I think it’s a little bit of everything and including the economy,’’ said Michell. Nonetheless, Mount Brenton still offered players plenty of incentive to participate. “This year, we had a $6,000 prize table,’’ said Michell. “We have an amazing sponsorship from local business.’’ Michell went straight to Vernon after the tournament for the Canadian senior women’s championship. She did extremely well, making the cut after the second round and then shooting a 79 on the third day to move up to 44th overall in the final standings.

tight enough in line and length. But once the first two batsmen went out playing rash shots and a change in bowling occurred, Cowichan curbed the run rate. Carico appeared headed for a sub-200 total at 147 for six, as the spin bowlers proved effective in the change of fortune. But when the bowling attack reverted back to speed, runs began to flow again and Carico ended with a flourish to close at 241 after 43 overs. Nagy Thomas took three wickets for 31 runs, Adam Benning three for 36 and Charles Swart an economical one for 21. Cowichan’s reply began cautiously but

there was a feeling the run rate could be raised with the fast outfield once the opening attack had been blunted. The first wicket fell at 33 and the score moved to 71 for two, with a strong middle order still to come. Rohn Mahen, batting at No. 4, produced a highlight of the Cowichan season, eventually making 102 and was the last man out in a valiant effort to score 43 off the last four overs. He ran out of partners as wickets steadily fell. Thomas (19) and Rodney Hender (16) were the only others to show some resistance. Cowichan closed at 198 all out.

alley versatility in sports showed at the B.C. Seniors Games in Kamloops, with medals won in everything from ice hockey and track and field to archery. Ageless Hazura Sangha of Duncan has now stepped into the 80 to 84 men’s age group in track and field and is still going strong. “I’ve been 17 years continuously,’’ Sangha said. He won gold medals in the 800 metres, 1,500, 5,000 and 10 kilometre road race, with a silver in his shortest event — the 400. Sangha does 10 to 11 km of road running every third day. “On the track, I go just before the Games,’’ he said. Sangha added the Games were very well organized. Other track and field prowess was shown by Marg Radcliffe of Lake Cowichan with five gold medals and two silver in women’s 70 to 74 events. The Chemainus Hendrie and Shook contingents made their presence felt. Nola Hendrie claimed silver medals in the long jump and pole vault plus a bronze in the women’s 55 to 59 100 metres. Tim Hendrie got into the act with a silver in men’s 60 to 64 high jump. Vern Shook brought back three bronze medals and two silver from his men’s 70 to 74 track events. Karen Shook received a silver medal in the women’s 60 to 64 400 metres. Doug Miller from Cobble Hill was a three-time silver medalist in men’s 70 to 74 1,500, 10K and 5,000.

Valley flavour to Canada’s rugby win over the U.S. in Toronto

Got a sports story? email sports@cowichannewsleader.com phone 250-856-0045

ATHLeTICS

It’s always a big deal when Canada beats the rival United States in any sport. A big triumph by Canada in rugby, 13-11 over the United States, Saturday in Toronto had a decided Cowichan Valley flavour to it. The Canadian side is coached

by none other than Shawnigan Lake resident Kieran Crowley, with Shawnigan Lake School grad Matt Evans, pictured, among the team members. Just for good measure, valley photographer Caity McCulloch was there to capture the action.

It doesn’t get any better than that. And the victory qualified Canada for the 2015 Rugby World Cup so it was an important one. Crowley wasn’t entirely happy with the way his team played, but qualifying to play in England in two years made up for it.

Tuck aims to add world title to national gold

Inspirational skier: Sets new Canadian record in comeback, off to Italy for worlds at month’s end Nick Bekolay

lad in a custom drysuit, Gord Tuck spent last winter carving across Cowichan Lake’s bonechilling waters. It was a training regimen that paid off for the 40-year-old adaptive skier Aug. 12 in the form of a national championship title and a new Canadian record. Tuck set back-to-back records in the Adaptive Slalom category of the 2013 Waterski Nationals — held at Calgary’s Predator Bay Waterski Club August 10 to 14 — carving out a spot for himself at this year’s World Disabled Waterski Championships in the process. Tuck rounded 1.5 buoys at 51.5 kilometres per hour in his first slalom run on Sunday, Aug.11, said Tuck’s coach Shawn Shorsky, breaking the Canadian record of four buoys at 45 km/h, set by Tuck himself in 2008. The following day, Tuck improved on that record by rounding two full buoys at 32 mph, Shorsky added. Shorsky credited Tuck’s record-setting performance at nationals to his training regimen. “He’s been busting his chops all season,” Shorsky said. “He’s been at the gym lots. He’s been on the water lots. He developed himself a solid yearly training plan and he’s been working solid on that.” The 40-year-old father of two has taken his record-setting comeback in stride. Tuck lost his left leg in a logging accident in 1991 at the age of 18.

An avid athlete and hobby skier during his youth, Tuck said he began playing sports again shortly after losing his leg. His penchant for sport led him to spend 10 years — from 1995 through 2005 — competing with the Canadian Para-Alpine ski team and three seasons — from 2003 to 2005 — competing as a member of the national adaptive waterski team. Tuck retired in 2005 when fatherhood — his daughters, aged six and nine, will cheer him on from home when he competes at the WDWC, he said — and running his own business proved to be too taxing. He came out of retirement briefly in 2008 to set a new national record at Waterski Nationals, but he turned down an invitation to rejoin the team, leaving him free to focus on work and family. Tuck owns and operates his own trucking and excavating company, an endeavour that saw him working seven days a week for extended periods of time, he said. His workload has since eased and he’s now able to “work less and ski more,” he added. Last summer, Shorsky — a neighbour and regular waterski partner — encouraged him to return to competition, Tuck said, and by midwinter, he “got serious.” “Shawn and I have been skiing regularly all winter long out on Cowichan Lake,” Tuck added. “It’s cold, but it’s not unbearable.” Tuck skied through spring and into summer, swapping his drysuit for a wetsuit as the mercury creeped up to tolerable levels. Logging countless hours on the lake over the last year led to tangible improvements in

Gord Tuck is carving out a whole new niche for himself as a prolific water skier after an extensive career in alpine skiing events that brought considerable success. Tuck’s skiing, he said, and he’s carved training runs on Cowichan Lake that would best his performance in Calgary. Before leaving for Milan, Italy — host city to the 2013 WDWC — Tuck said: “If I can ski what I know I’m capable of, I should do alright.” Tuck trained in Milan from Aug. 22 to 25, Shorsky said. Preliminaries began Aug. 29 and finals are scheduled for Sept. 1.

Shorsky confirmed that Tuck has “an exceptionally good chance of finishing on the podium” in Milan. Tuck’s an “inspirational” athlete, Shorsky added, “and it’s hard to have a bad day when you’ve got somebody like him around. To watch what he does on the water is remarkable.” Follow Tuck’s performance at the 2013 WDWC online at http://www.2013wdwc.com.

Staying on top of the men’s and junior field was the aim of Gavin Hollebakken and he did it.

he list of winners during the Cowichan Golf Club’s club championships looked a lot like last year. That’s because Gavin Hollebakken repeated as overall men’s low gross winner, Don Frenette as seniors’ champion, Mary Braithwaite as overall women’s winner and Melinda Spoor as senior women’s champ. Hollebakken carded a two-day 146 to lead the men’s pack. Callum Davison

It bears repeating: Hollebakken, Frenette, Braithwaite and Spoor all back in winning form

landed one shot behind at 147 for first in First Flight 0-11, with Aaron Keller and Darrin Moilanen — both at 148 — nipping at his heels. Russ Harris had a 172 to top the Second Flight 12 and over, with Warren Ulrich and Glen Powell both close behind at 173. Frenette carded 156 for the seniors lead.

Braithwaite had a 10-shot cushion over Spoor in women’s overall with her 163. Mary-Lynn Boxem came third at 186. Hollebakken’s 146 was also the best of the juniors. In low net, Ken Paton was the overall men’s winner at 133. He was also the senior men’s low net champion. In First Flight 0-11, a pair of Ians led

A logjam occurred for women’s first overall with three players at 148. When it eventually got sorted out, Glenda Barrett was first, Marianne Hunt second and Ellen Lyon third. Barrett also got top spot for the senior women and Andrea Morris’ 216 was the low net for the juniors.
