Victoria senior dies after fall in home Daniel Palmer News staff

An 81-year-old Victoria man died in hospital Tuesday after falling in his apartment and lying undiscovered for nearly a week. On Monday, building caretakers entered the man’s suite in the 108unit independent living complex at 11 Chown Pl., run by the Gorge View Society, and found him cling-

ing to life. “Sometimes even with a lot of safeguards in place, there can be a perfect storm of people being away, misinformation, and I’m very aware of the feelings of the family, who are obviously devastated as all of us are,” said Jane Louie, administrator at Gorge View Society. Louie said the society doesn’t provide daily monitoring of its resi-

dents, as many seniors prefer an independent lifestyle. “We are independent living, and we encourage all our residents to know each other and let us know if there are any concerns,” she said. Chown Place residents met this week to discuss the tragedy as well as current safeguards for monitoring. Victoria police issued an advisory to seniors and their fami-

lies Tuesday, after discovering a 55-year-old man in Esquimalt who had suffered from a debilitating fall and had been alone for four or five days. “It is important that people wanting to maintain their independence, whether they are seniors or someone affected by health related issues, understand the importance of having regular contact with family, friends, an acquaintance in

their building or neighbourhood or a community service,” said Sherri Dixon, program co-ordinator at James Bay new Horizons Society. The society operates a nocharge seniors reassurance program, where trained staff provide daily check-in calls to seniors who live alone. For more information, call 250386-4432. dpalmer@vicnews.com

City axes sustainability department Daniel Palmer News staff

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Purrrfect hug Adoptable cat Ruby gets a hug from hopeful owner Hildegarde Scholtz at the Victoria BC SPCA on Napier Lane. The animal shelter will open its doors Sunday (Sept. 1), 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., for a day of interactive fun inviting animal lovers to the Fall For the Animals event. The public will get a chance to meet staff, volunteers and the animals available for adoption and to have a peek at the behind the scenes work carried out daily at one of B.C.’s busiest animal shelters.

The City of Victoria is eliminating its sustainability department in an effort to cut millions of dollars from next year’s budget. The director of sustainability, Roy Brooke, was laid off, while three staff positions within the department have been reassigned to planning and engineering. Planning and development will now be known as the department of sustainable planning and community development, said Katie Hamilton, director of communications. “It’s a tough day,” said Mayor Dean Fortin. “We recognize that when you eliminate positions, there are good people behind those positions.” A consultant’s review released Aug. 2 on city operations recommended axing the four-person sustainability department and integrating some functions into other departments, but the decision to proceed on that recommendation wasn’t announced until last Tuesday. In total, three management positions have been eliminated at city hall in the past month, which will result in $500,000 in annual sav-

ings, Fortin said, adding he doesn’t anticipate further staff reductions this year. “Those are savings that will continue each and every year,” he said.  “We feel the outcome of the organizational review is complete.” The mandate of the former sustainability department is already entrenched in many municipal decisions, thanks in part to a revamped official community plan, Fortin said. City hall will continue to work towards increasing alternative modes of transportation, affordable housing, community gardens and other sustainable initiatives, he added. Councillors are poised to approve budgets for 2014 and 2015 at the end of September and have committed to maintaining a 3.25 per cent tax increase for both years. Fortin said council is continuing to examine other sources of revenue, like naming rights for the Victoria Conference Centre and advertising at city parkades. The city’s executive director of economic development is also due to report back to council in September. “Fundamentally, we recognize economic development is top priority,” Fortin said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Police warn drivers to be cautious over long weekend Kyle Slavin News staff

It’s the last weekend before school’s back in session, meaning the roads and highways in and out of Greater Victoria will be packed with long-weekend vacationers and university students moving back to the region. And with an increase in volume typically comes an increase in crashes and injuries, especially on long weekends. ICBC this week released stats that show on average 290 crashes occur on Vancouver Island over the “More cars Labour Day long weekon the road end. Some 80 people are injured in those crashes. means more “More cars on the road means more chances of chances of stuff stuff happening, especially happening, if people are in a rush to save time before school especially if starts. Slow down, pay people are in a attention – it’s not worth rush to save time trying to save an extra 10 minutes,” said Acting Sgt. before school Mike Bainbridge, with Saastarts.” nich police’s traffic safety unit. – Acting Sgt. Mike He said Saanich cops Bainbridge will be out looking for distracted, impaired and aggressive drivers. ICBC says on average four people lose their lives on B.C. roads on the Labour Day long weekend – deaths that can be prevented. Among their reminders to be safe on the road include: ensure your vehicle (plus any boats or trailers you’re towing) is road safe; eliminate distractions inside the vehicle; and keep your distance, especially if the road is slick. “Although VicPD’s traffic section won’t be out specifically targeting motorists, our general patrol officers will be busy looking for Motor Vehicle Act infractions, ensuring our safety on our roads,” said VicPD Const. Mike Russell. “It’s every driver’s responsibility to ensure all road users arrive at their destination.” With the influx of post-secondary students returning to the Capital Region, Russell says that makes Labour Day a very busy weekend downtown. He said patrol officers will be out in full force, and working with Late Night Great Night Victoria to ensure the streets are safe. And, as another reminder, Tuesday is the first day back at school, meaning the 30 km/h speed limit in school zones are back in effect. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Labour Day Special Report

Ancient art of farrier takes modern twist Horseshoeing is unlike any other industry, says farrier Travis Paterson News staff

At 17 years of age, Diva has gone through hundreds of horseshoes, and for the past six years farrier Cole Henderson has had the pleasure of fitting them to the big girl’s hooves. Henderson and Diva renew acquaintances about every eight weeks, but you wouldn’t know it from this afternoon. “She’s being complicated and she knows she’s bad too,” says Diva’s owner Taylor Henselin, who last competed in jumping with Diva in the spring. Henderson exercises a blend of safety, patience and skill as he out-waits the fidgety mare. “Usually she locks her legs up and sleeps while I go through the motions,” he says, sighing as she pulls her foot away for the umpteenth time. “It’s not always an easy job but you get to play with horses.” The Scotsman has been working as a farrier for 40 years, off and on. He started in England, hanging around the horse racing tracks, which took him to the heart of American horse racing, Lexington, Ky.

Diva kicks again, this time knocking the hammer from his hand. “It’s not like any other industry. For starters, you have to be a blacksmith and you have to know the anatomy of the horse. There’s not many jobs where you hammer a nail into a living animal.” Racing brought him to B.C., too. Though he’s now Saanich-based and works all over the Island, Henderson has worked the racetracks of Vancouver, and with horses on some bigtime movie sets. While some things have stayed the same – composite steel is still preferred over the new plastic shoes, which are all-around better – a lot has changed since Henderson started in the 1970s. Until recently, farriers made their own tools. But the biggest change is the travel. “Back in the day, people brought their horses to the farrier’s shop. We didn’t do house visits.”   The main reasons is advent of the propane forge used to heat the shoe. Henderson’s truck, which used to serve horses at a New York racetrack, comes with its own propane forge. Farriers previously stoked a coal forge. The

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Farrier Cole Henderson works on Diva, owned by Taylor Henselin, on Oldfield Road. Henderson is extra busy this time of year with owners prepping their horses for fall fairs. portable devices took at least 30 minutes to set up and another 45 minutes to cool down, limiting the amount of daily visits. “With the propane forge I can pack up and go in five minutes. I just sold my coal forge to a blacksmithing artist last year as I never use it now,” Henderson says. Medicine has also advanced the life expectancy of horses. “Horses are kind of like people now in that they are living longer

because we can diagnose things like diabetes and blood disorders that we had no idea about horses having 40 years ago. Injuries and disease with the hoof are no longer a death sentence. Almost everything can be cured now.” A little over an hour into the job and Diva’s nearly ready. Her front shoes are on (she doesn’t wear shoes on her hind legs) and her hooves have been trimmed. The hoof, which is made of the

same component as hair, grows around the shoe and needs to be clipped, much like a fingernail. Diva relents, mostly because Henselin is holding a bale of hay up to her mouth. The snack is just enough to give Henderson a window file her hooves with an even finish. “She got her way, food and new shoes,” Henselin says. Diva is usually an accommodating horse, otherwise Henderson might think twice. “There are some very dangerous horses out there, I just don’t have anything to do with them,” Henderson says. A farrier’s Workers Compensation Board rates are among the most highest in B.C., just above underground mining and below for-

est fire fighting. There are more dangerous jobs, but they’re really just a different type of danger. “However careful you are you pick up a lot of scars – my hands are covered in them,” Henderson said. His legs are marked not just from being kicked by hooves, but by being ripped open when the horse pulls its foot away with a nail sticking out from the hoof wall.

“I’ve never had a really serious injury and haven’t had any stitches in about six years. I’ll walk away from dangerous horses rather than try to prove how brave I am,” he said, though that’s not the case with all farriers. “One of the Island’s farriers retired a couple of years ago at age 84 and I expect I’ll be working to that age if I can stay healthy.” sports@vicnews.com

healthy lives. But to those who know McLennan, this is exactly what sets him apart as one of the Island’s premium and best-regarded butchers. “I can physically take you to each of the farms I buy from and show you how well those animals are raised,” he says. “I purchase the best meats from the best cared-for animals, and people can tell the difference. It is more of an investment, but I don’t care about the cost and, at the end of the day, that care pays off and we make money anyway.” McLennan has been turning heads since taking over Cook Street’s Island Meat & Seafood in January. Yet the man who does everything from slicing to sausagemaking is far from new to the industry. McLennan has been working with meat since he was 13 years old, and created the institution better known as Red Barn Market’s butchery. McLennan, 41, works fast, and with furious precision, as he trims the grey meat off a roast, saws chicken bones and cuts por-

store manager, is the first to apprentice under McLennan. Braidwood worked in the chef industry for many years before coming to Island Meats two years ago. Now, under McLennan’s management, Braidwood says he’s seen the store blossom in ways he’s immensely proud of. “It’s the little details

that weren’t getting done before, and Meatdogg and I share that real vision for doing things the right way,” Braidwood says. “My sense of pride is back now, and time just flies when you are working here. We have a lot of fun.” While McLennan spends most of his time preparing meats

He smiles as he points to the photos on the wall displaying some of his suppliers, like Tannadice Farms in the Comox Valley, Henry & Jones Grass Fed Beef in Cowichan Bay and Kildonan Farm chickens in North Saanich. He boasts about his good friends at Portofino Bakery who have recently helped supply the store with baked goods, he even comments on how you’ll never see exotic meats like veal in his store, as the animals he butchers must be raised and be local. McLennan and his store also build a reputation on a “no growthhormones, no antibiotics” mantra. And, Island Meats recently won first runner-up for favourite local meat or poultry supplier in the We Heart Local Awards. But while the nod is appreciated, the real win for McLennan is in the relationships he’s built with members of the urban and farm communities. “I spend more time with the cuts, because I’ll never sell you anything I wouldn’t eat, and I won’t eat this,” McLennan says, pointing to the grey sinewy layer he’s just trimmed off a roast. “A lot of places will turn this part into sausage, or use it other ways, but it’s garbage for me.

Mike Waterman, owner of Old Towne Shoe Repair, patches a boot inside his shop at 605 Johnson St.

Shoe-repair business has never been better Daniel Palmer News staff

The scent of glue, vinyl, leather and polish lingers like a thin fog inside Old Towne Shoe Repair. Mike Waterman shuffles through ribbons of black dust along the concrete floor before sliding a weathered boot onto a steel arm, tracing its eroded sole beneath a neoprene rubber sheet. The cobbler’s cramped workspace in the 600-block of Johnson St. hasn’t been renovated since its 1985 opening, though a half-dozen century-old machines give the impression of a staged museum. “People come in all the time and say, ‘Don’t change a thing,’” Waterman says, his hands exploring a torn leather purse strap. He pulls out a 1905 eyelet press and thuds it on the table. Despite the proliferation of cheap, one-season footwear, Waterman

says business has never been better. “What’s really coincided with my business picking up is the recycling concept. It took a long time for the idea of less consumption to catch on, but now people fix rather than throw away.” A senior couple wander through the open shop door, peering at the stacks of mismatched shoes along the far wall. “I just couldn’t walk by without looking in here,” says the woman, on vacation from Montana. “We don’t have places like this where I’m from.” Waterman exchanges pleasantries with the couple from behind his vintage industrial sewing machine, methodically cranking its wheel while working the crest of a boot past its needle. “People can always relate to the trades,” he says as the couple disappear onto the street. dpalmer@vicnews.com

OUR VIEW

Watershed time for B.C. Greens The election of renowned climate scientist Andrew Weaver in May gave the B.C. Green party its first sitting member in the legislature in eight provincial elections. As the party moves forward without a confirmed leader, however, it risks painting itself into a corner and rendered a one-hit The time is now being wonder. for Green party With the euphoria of Weaver’s victory over to gain ground longtime Liberal cabinet minister Ida Chong in Oak Bay-Gordon Head having long since faded, the Greens must now face reality. This is a party that lost ground for a third straight election, taking barely eight per cent of the popular vote in the province after achieving a high of 12.4 per cent in 2001, when the NDP were all but wiped out. They are a party at a crossroads. Interim leader Adam Olsen, the energetic, well-spoken former Central Saanich councillor who has a clear sense of Green policy, is a placeholder for now. While he may be seen amongst party faithful as a solid banner carrier, the chances he would inspire voters outside Greater Victoria to switch allegiances seem highly unlikely. Jane Sterk, whose political experience was limited to one term on Esquimalt council, wasn’t the person to take the Greens to the next level, either locally or provincially. Weaver, the “rock star” candidate who brought instant credibility to the party, made the right decision to pass on the leadership job as he learns the ropes as a rookie MLA. The Greens, who put many of their eggs in one basket to get Weaver elected, must put the same effort into finding the right leader if they hope to become a relevant alternative to the traditional parties in B.C. in future elections. With federal leader Elizabeth May already well established in Saanich North and the Islands, the Green movement has a golden opportunity to gain even more of a foothold.

Trails were simply footpaths through existing parks back then. Now, our trail system connects the entire municipality, with more than 100 kilometres of trails connected by the Centennial Trail network and the Galloping Goose and Lochside trails. Mount Douglas Park was potentially a crew-cut park – land protected at the top, development along the slopes – but today the entire area has been acquired. More recently, Panama Flats and Haro Woods have been acquired and protected. Senior centres have been added, libraries upgraded and playgrounds are well beyond what were simple swing sets. Such achievements require significant commitment, resources and money. Saanich councils over the years have endorsed policies that provide a framework for these expansions. Our staff have embraced this as part of our culture and are keen to ensure all citizens have opportunities to lead active lives. However, none of this is possible without the support of our taxpayers. Parks and recreation is now our third largest budget expense behind police and fire. A Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan was adopted in March and is consistent with our policy of Saanich being a healthy and active community. We hope this continues to be supported, not only by citizens using our parks, trails and recreation facilities, but through council approving expenditures required to meet this need. Frank Leonard has been mayor of Saanich since 1996.

CRD fumbles over sewage plan Re: Despite protests, sewage plan marches on (News, Aug. 21) I’m a sewage plan naysayer simply because the Capital Regional District’s bad sewage plan would replace our low-risk marine treatment with a poorly planned high-risk land treatment system. Evidence of bad CRD decisions include the secret purchase in March of a high-risk sludge plant site in the middle of a dense Esquimalt neighbourhood. Evidence of CRD

negligence includes their refusal to complete an environmental impact assessment under the B.C. Environmental Assessment Act or the federal environment act. It’s absolutely incredible that an urbansited mega-sewage plant, hazardous sludge pipelines, and mega-sludge plant don’t trigger environmental assessments. John Newcomb Saanich

Readers respond: Kind motorists, deer problems Motorists comes to aid of cyclist A huge thanks to the gentleman driving a silver truck who helped get me and my bicycle off the road at the intersection of Keating Cross and Oldfield roads after a humbling crash. More thanks go out to the other drivers who stopped or slowed and allowed me to get off the road safely. My body is bruised, but my ego more so. If we cross paths again and you recognize me, let me know and I’ll buy you a round. Justin Hitchborn Central Saanich

A solution to the deer problem People are going about the deer problem from the wrong angle. I estimate 80 per cent of people want a cull and 20 per cent want the deer. The deer lovers tell the rest of us to build a giant fence for a few grand or take up fishing (which I hate) instead of gardening. I say the deer lovers build a giant fence, grow some lovely plants for the deer to eat then lock the gate and keep them in. Then they can

admire the deer every day and my yard and my neighbours’ yards can start to look nice again, instead of the moonscapes they are becoming. David Dickie Esquimalt

UVic researchers tackle the unseen injury Academics, hockey players team up to study concussions Kyle Slavin News staff

Eleven-year-old Jack Walkey concentrates on the eight floating colourful orbs on the large computer screen in front of him. A few of them flash quickly from yellow to orange and back again, then bounce around the screen – all the while the young boy’s eyes barely flinch. Walkey stays focused, trying his hardest to ensure he keeps track of which balls change colour. This is Neurotracker, a piece of software being used by researchers at the University of Victoria to better understand concussions in kids, which will hopefully lead to standardizing diagnoses and treatment of brain injuries, especially for children playing contact sports. Brian Christie, director of UVic’s neuroscience graduate program, and fellow

Kyle Slavin/News staff

Brian Christie, director of the University of Victoria’s neuroscience graduate program, is part of a team of researchers from across Canada looking to improve diagnoses and treatment of concussions. researchers across Canada are using the software to test young hockey players preand post-concussion. “Any time they get a concussion, their ability to perform the game drops dramatically, almost in half, and as they return from the concussion we can see their speed following the balls come back,” Christie said. “It actually gives us a sort of

return-to-play guideline.” Christie and other researchers were recently awarded $1.4 million over five years from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for this study, which aims to standardize concussion data across the country to better understand symptoms and long-term effects. This will give parents, players and coaches clearer

information to make better decisions around treatment and when a child is safe to get back in the game. “Before returning to play, we put them through the program again and it gives us, as parents, a greater level of comfort after our children have received a blow to the head,” said Frank Stanley with the Victoria Racquet Club.

Some 200 kids aged six to 17 from the Racquet Club have been tested using Neurotracker. “We’ve had a couple (13and 14-year-old) hockey players who have used this after receiving a concussion. It has been very practical in their return to play protocol,” Stanley said. “Even the players themselves are becoming more aware of the impact concussions can have on their playing careers and their enjoyment of the game.” “For a long time … we looked at players who suffered concussions as not really having an injury, and now we’re recognizing that these are probably the most severe injuries that players can sustain,” Stanley said. Dr. Chand Teneja, a pediatric clinical neuropsychologist, says this study is groundbreaking, as there isn’t much research into concussions on youth. “The majority of kids who do hit their head are not even going to the emergency room. Maybe the parents find symptoms a few days later: vomiting, dizziness or nausea. Oftentimes they go straight back to school and

haven’t been diagnosed,” Teneja said. “You do want to take care of those physical symptoms, but there could be other symptoms: cognitive problems and processing speeds are not as noticeable.” Recently young hockey players at Toronto Maple Leaf Ryan O’Byrne’s charity hockey camp participated in the program, too. O’Byrne, a Victoria native, said partnering with Christie was a nobrainer. “Raising this awareness and doing baseline testing at my camp has been a great success,” he said. O’Byrne said he feels the pressures in his career, especially in his role as an intimidating defenceman, to get back on the ice as soon as possible following a head injury. “I’ve done similar concussion programs with respective NHL teams in the past, nothing quite as advanced as Dr. Christie’s,” O’Byrne said. “Concussions are an injury that you can’t see. It’s difficult for people to sometimes sympathize with you. They ask ‘What’s wrong? Why aren’t you playing?’” kslavin@saanichnews.com

Record reservations set B.C. Parks campgrounds An exceptionally sunny, dry summer helped push B.C. Parks to an all-time record number of reservations at provincial campgrounds. More than 115,000 camping reservations were made through the province’s Discover Camping service, up 12 per cent from last year. Campers were allowed to make reservations at more campsites and campgrounds, including Kleanza Creek, Martha Creek, Chilliwack Lake, Mable Lake and Bowron Lake, increasing the number of reservable sites to more than 5,000 at 95 parks. While Labour Day is the traditional end to the regular camping season, B.C. Parks officials are trying to pump up shoulder season camping. They say campsites are quieter in the fall, with attractions like spawning salmon in some areas.

Gaining strength from those who can’t ride Kyle Slavin News staff

Marc Lavergne spent four years watching his father slowly lose his life, as a nonaggressive form of bladder cancer took away his independence. “He went from a very strong-willed, physical individual to a person that just had to sit down in his chair and watch life go by. And that was very hard for him,” says Lavergne, ceremonial, protocol and advisory NCO for the Island District RCMP. “I remember watching him watch people cut his grass – that was one of the most painful things. He was still at home, not physically able to get outside. That really set him back.” Lavergne, a father of three girls, says it’s impossible to fathom just how taxing going through that experience would be for a parent of a child with cancer. Trying to put himself in those parents’ shoes is what’s helping motivate him through every Tour de Rock training ride, every hill and every pedal-stroke he takes. “I can do this. It’s by no means an easy task, but I am physically able, and I want to do it,” he says. Ray Carfantan is in a very similar boat. Also a father of three girls, he knows how fortunate he is that all of them are healthy. “As a father I’m very lucky. I don’t have kids with cancer. So my hope in terms of the ride and trying to make things better for kids is a bit of an insurance policy in the event their kids are diagnosed with something. I want to do my part for cancer research and treatment, so they’re further down the road than they are today,” says Carfantan, staff sergeant in charge of the Island District general investigation section. Carfantan, like Lavergne, also watched cancer slowly take his father’s life. “That process was excruciating. Knowing the end was coming and wanting to have conversations that you haven’t had, deeper conversations that you’ve never really attempted to be able to have,” Carfantan says. “It really hits home when you talk to a parent

that lost a child to cancer.” Those parents will never have the chance to watch their child experience life, he says, and it’s that harsh reality that motivates him to ride. Jennifer Prunty, while not a parent, had her own cancer scare last summer that put the fragility of life into perspective. A pink mole above her left knee turned out to be a fast-developing melanoma. She treated it aggressively – having it twice removed and requiring a lymph node biopsy – and thankfully doctors were successful in removing it all. “That was my wake-up call. Cancer can hit any time, when you least expect it,” she says. “It kind of sent us for a Tilt-A-Whirl, and I decided everything is going on hold next year, and I’m doing the Tour de Rock.” Prunty, an RCMP officer working for the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crimes Unit, says Tour is her way giving back. “Cancer is still a really scary word. I just can’t imagine how horrible that would be to hear that your small child (who) you have all these

NEW 2 LEVEL

expectations for has cancer,” she says. That perspective makes her want to do as much as she can to raise money for a cure and support programs for these kids and their families. The three RCMP officers are all members of this year’s 21-person Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team. The team, made up of police officers, members of the media and special guests, will cycle 1,100 kilometres from Port Alice to Victoria next month raising money for pediatric cancer research and support programs. “Yeah, it would be a lot easier to make a donation, but there’s a commitment and passion involved in the Tour de Rock. It’s my responsibility as a police officer who can do this to do it,” Prunty says. “I’m healthy; I’m fit; there’s no reason why I can’t. There’s a lot of people who are going through cancer treatments who would like to do this who physically can’t so it’s my responsibility to grab it and do it.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

Labour Day 2013 around the region Greater Victorians are ready to send summer out with a bang this weekend. Sure, the calendar may say there’s another three weeks to our favourite sunny season, but for most families, Labour Day marks the end of summer and back to work and school, so let’s make the most of it! Many will take the time Monday to recognize the contributions of the country’s workers; others will spend the weekend creating special

moments with friends and neighbours, making memories to be shared for summers to come. From yummy food at Greek Fest and unique cultural activities like the Fringe Festival and Blues Bash to Butchart Gardens fireworks and the fun and games of the Saanich Fair, the only trouble may be in finding time for it all. So here we invite you to browse these pages and make a plan to enjoy a Labour Day weekend to remember.

From family fun at the Victoria Labour Council picnic to Greek Fest and the Saanich Fair, there’s lots to see and do this weekend!

erpetual blues machine Adam Karch picked up the guitar at age 12. He used to head to the barn on the family farm in L’Acadie, Que. to watch his brothers play with their band. One day, the lead guitarist showed him how to play. It was love at first strum. “The first song I learned how to play was Angie from the Stones. I just kept playing 10 hours a day,” he says from his home outside Montreal. “I don’t practise that much anymore.” “All my brothers stopped playing when I started,” he says. “Dad was really supportive … he built a stage in the barn with lights. I’d go up there with my band and practise. It got me used to playing in front of people. I’m really kind of shy. I don’t really like attention.” It wasn’t until later that he opened his mouth to sing. What happened next was a music miracle. The young man, who spoke with a stutter his whole life, was able to sing without faltering.

Singing the By MARy ELLEN GREEN

BlueS away

“I’ll be honest. I stutter. And when I sing, I don’t. It’s been like that 35 years. I have good days and bad days, but when I sing it’s gone … I remember someone telling me that my stutter was gone the first time I sang. I didn’t even notice. It’s one of those things. I enjoyed it, but I didn’t know quite why.” A few years later, the budding bluesman found himself touring Germany with the late-great Jeff Healey. While on tour, he had the chance to rub elbows with the likes of Phil Collins and James Brown. “I got to hang out with him for the month,” says Karch. “It was so nice to be with a Canadian icon.” Although Karch grew up in Quebec, he speaks primarily in English, allowing him to sing and converse with crowds in both French and English. “I’m pretty much bilingual. It’s fun when I get to go out West and play and speak in English. I don’t get to do that often.” Karch played an afternoon show at last year’s Vancouver Island Blues Bash and won over the huge audience that gathered to hear him play. The sun was glistening

on the Inner Harbour and the crowd was tuned into what he was playing. “It was amazing. It was really, really cool. I don’t get out of Quebec very often, and I couldn’t have been invited to a nicer festival. The way the audience listens to the music, the way they applaud, the way they understand it — it’s a whole new way of appreciating an artist. I felt really at home.” And so the hosts of the Blues Bash invited him back, in hopes of recreating some of that magic. “We got an overwhelming response from the 2,000 people who saw last year’s performance,” says Darryl Mar, executive director of the Victoria Jazz Society. This time around, Karch is on the same bill as Stephen Barry Band, also from Quebec, on what is being touted as Quebec Blues Night Double Bill, Sun., Sept. 1. The other ticketed performance at this year’s bash is Duke Robillard, someone Mar calls “one of the best blues artists in the world.” There are free afternoon performances in the Inner Harbour Aug. 31-Sept. 2.

lthough anything by the creators of Shaun of the Dead is potentially of great interest, their new horror-comedy The World’s End is disappointingly slapdash and a bit short on the laughs. The movie opens with aging bad-boy Gary King (Simon Pegg) cajoling his four best mates from high school into a beer-soaked reunion. The plan is to return to their hometown to finally complete the elaborate pub-crawl that ended so ignominiously for them 20 years earlier. A very bad idea, as it turns out. Unkempt and unshaven, motor-mouth Gary has remnants of his youthful panache but is mostly an immature jerk – so much so that his friends, who have all long-since become responsible adults, are ready to abandon the boozy ne’er do well after quaffing only four pints. But then they discover that the town is populated by replicant robots. Needless to say it’s soon a case of man versus machine as End upshifts from you-can’t-go-home-again bittersweet nostalgia to an apocalyptic scrap. It’s easy to want to like this movie: at its core are five decent actors playing characters who are having a collective mid-life crisis that is funny and occasionally touching. But all the sci-fi stuff that drives the plot is just silliness that doesn’t go anywhere, leading to a movie with throwaway gags and nothing much on its mind (with Shaun, the movie began with the droll idea that the citizens of London were already a bit zombiefied even before the undead starting their chomping). And although Gary is supposed to be a lovable rascal, you’re mostly rooting for one of his mates to dump a pint of ale on his annoying fat head. Rating:

T

he mayhem is much more gruesome in You’re Next, a diabolically clever slasher flick that takes the home-invasion genre and kicks it up several notches. It’s a couple’s 35th wedding anniversary, and they’re celebrating at their remote summerhouse with four adult children and various spouses and partners. During dinner a crossbow bolt shatters a window and ends up in the middle of someone’s forehead. Shock turns to horror as these terrified folk soon realize that there are maniacs out there with animal masks on their faces and butchery on their minds. And so it goes, with the body count – and the screams – steadily increasing. What could have been just a better-than-average slice of slaughter-porn suddenly gets interesting when one of the guests with an unusual survivalist background proves very resourceful when it comes to fighting back. After one of the bad guys has his skull pulped to grey jelly by an oversize meat tenderizer, the movie unexpectedly tilts from massacre to fair fight – one with a generous helping of plot twists. It’s probably impossible to really scare audiences these days but Next comes pretty close, thanks to the director’s ability to both manipulate and surprise the audience. Declining to wallow in excessive sadism, the script uses standard horror tropes in fresh ways, and also adds an impressively pitch-black sense of humour to several scenes. Not to all tastes of course, but splatter fans will have a shockingly fine time with this anything-but-peaceful visit to the country. Rating:

ith an epic pub-crawl as the plot line for World’s End, let’s limit ourselves to one epic beer: Dark Matter, by local brewing icon Sean Hoyne. Okay, maybe it’s not exactly one of the great mysteries of astrophysics, but this Dark Matter is an impressive ale indeed, one that combines aspects of a stout, a porter, and a brown ale. There is heft here, but delicacy too, alongside flavours of mocha, caramel, and a hint of chocolate and coffee. Yum!

movie listings OPENING

CLOSED CIRCUIT -(Empire 6/Empire Uni 4) Eric Bana stars in a timely British thriller about a lawyer asked to represent a man accused of a terrorist bombing. When he looks a little too deeply into the case, Britain’s security apparatus starts to take a threatening interest in his activities. Started Wed. ★★★ THE GRANDMASTER -(Odeon) Art film auteur Kar Wai Wong (In The Mood For Love) directs his first martial arts epic with this absorbing, gorgeously filmed account of the legendary martial-arts teacher Ip Man (who coached Bruce Lee). Starring the great Tony Leung (Hero) and Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Starts Fri. THE GETAWAY -(SilverCity/ Empire 6) Ethan Hawke stars in a high-velocity thriller about a gifted drag racer who gets blackmailed into doing the bidding of a scary man with a mysterious agenda. Costarring Selena Gomez and Jon Voight. Starts Fri. IN A WORLD -(Odeon) There’s quite a buzz surrounding this comedy about an underachieving vocal coach who becomes motivated to become a star in the world of movie voice-overs. Starts Fri. ONE DIRECTION: THIS IS US -(SilverCity/Westshore) This musical documentary chronicles the meteoric rise of Niall, Zayn, Louis and Harry from their small-town beginnings to world fame as rock stars. Starts Fri. ★★½ RED 2 -(Roxy, 7 pm) Newcomer Anthony Hopkins joins Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Bruce Willis, and Mary-Louise Parker as they reprise their roles as retired CIA “black ops” agents marked for death by their own agency. Although not as good as the 2010 original, this is entertaining enough, mostly due to the sly dialogue and killer performances. Starts Fri.

CONTINUING

★★★★ BLUE JASMINE -(Odeon) Cate Blanchett is headed for an Oscar nomination for her role as an emotionally fragile woman struggling to recover after her life as a glamorous socialite implodes. Complete with a great cast, this is one of Woody Allen’s best films. Ever. CHENNAI EXPRESS -(Empire 6) South India is the setting for this exuberant, Bollywood-style actioncomedy starring Shah Rukh Khan. THE CROODS -(Caprice) A prehistoric family taking an unexpected “road trip” into a magical land is the plot of this whimsical animated charmer (which has been getting great reviews). With the vocal talents of Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, and Ryan Reynolds. EPIC -(Caprice) In this animated family adventure a teenage girl is magically transported to a deep forest setting where she bands together with a wacky crew of critters to help battle a terrifyingly dark force that is threatening their world … and ours. ★★½ DESPICABLE ME 2 -(Westshore) The 2010 original, about a loathsome criminal mastermind who was reformed by

the love of three young orphan girls, was a goofy delight. The sequel, although still clever, is much more scattershot, with an unimaginative plot and unwelcome dashes of mean spiritedness. Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, and Russell Brand supply the voices. ★★½ ELYSIUM -(Odeon/Empire Uni 4/SilverCity) Matt Damon and Jodie Foster star in a futuristic sci-fi thriller where the Earth has become a polluted ghetto and the lucky few get to live in luxury on a floating space station orbiting languidly above. Well, that’s about to change. It’s hard to argue with the politics, but this new film by the writer-director of District 9 is too heavy-handed and cliched to take seriously. See review. FRUITVALE STATION -(Odeon) There is lots of buzz around this truthbased reenactment of the turbulent last day of a young black man in 2008. Starts Fri. GROWN UPS 2 -(Caprice) Despite the name, expect the humour to be decidedly juvenile in this amiable raunchfest about the reunion of five school buddies, who have aged but not matured. Starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade. JOBS -(Empire 6) Ashton Kutcher stars in a promising portrait of Steve Jobs, the college dropout who started a computer revolution that helped define and beautify the wireless world. KICK-ASS 2 -(Caprice) Expect more hard-edged laughs and jokey violence in this sequel to the big hit about a teenage girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) who was trained as a vigilante by her father. The costars include Jim Carrey, Morris Chestnut, and John Leguizamo. LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER -(Odeon/Empire Uni 4) Forest Whitaker heads up an amazing cast in a drama about a black butler at the White House whose long tenure there overlapped with many powerful domestic and international political events. Costarring Vanessa Redgrave, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Terrence Howard, James Marsden, Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman. ★★½ THE HEAT -(Caprice) In this raucous and sometimes hit-and-miss comedy from Paul Feig (Knocked Up), Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) play oddcouple cops who will have to learn to work together if they are to stand a chance of taking down the drug lord who’s their assigned target. ★★ THE LONE RANGER -(Caprice) More proves to be less, as the classic western TV show from the 1950s that featured a masked lawman and his Native American sidekick gets a predictably bombastic treatment from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES -(Empire 6/ SilverCity/Westshore) Only the bones were left after the critics universally savaged this derivative, overwrought tale of a young woman who discovers that she has unusual powers as she gets drawn into a battle involving a band of angel-like

creatures struggling to squash a demonic threat to the entire world. ★★★½ PACIFIC RIM -(Caprice) Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) helms this Transformers-ish epic about monsters that attack Earth and are opposed by giant robots controlled by human “pilots.” This is a skilfully directed and highly imaginative tribute to all those schlocky Godzilla movies of old. ★★ PERCY JACKSON: SEA OF MONSTERS -(Empire 6/SilverCity) In this newest addition to the blandly derivative fantasy series that riffs on Greek mythology, the half-human son of Poseidon and his buddies embark on a magical quest to find the Golden Fleece in order to stop an ancient evil from destroying the world. PLANES -(Empire 6/SilverCity/ Westshore) The same people who made Cars have taken to the skies with a similar family-friendly animated tale about a crop-dusting plane with dreams of winning a famous aerial race. SMURFS 2 -(SilverCity/Westshore) The blue munchkins are back for more pint-sized adventures, this one involving a sorcerer and a diabolical kidnapping. ★ R.I.P.D. -(Caprice) Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star in a dismal action comedy that is nothing more than a crass ripoff of Men In Black. Bridges, who plays an “undead cop” who patrols the Earth looking for weird monsters to exterminate, should probably return the Oscar he received for Crazy Heart. TURBO -(Caprice) The latest from Dreamworks Animation is a family comedy about an ordinary garden snail who acquires magic powers – and the chance to achieve his dream of winning the Indy 500. With the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Maya Rudolph, and Samuel L. Jackson. ★★½ THE WORLD’S END -(Odeon/SilverCity/Westshore) In a disappointing but occasionally funny follow-up from the makers of Shaun of the Dead, five old friends reunite for a pub crawl only to find themselves in a droll sci-fi action-adventure of epic proportions. Starring Simon Pegg. See review. ★★½ WE’RE THE MILLERS -(Odeon/SilverCity) Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston star in a crass comedy about a long-time pot dealer who hires a stripper and two feral teens to pretend to be his middle class family as cover for when he smuggles a massive load of weed across the border from Mexico to the States. Intermittently quite funny, this is a case of talented performers struggling with a second-rate script. ★★★ WOLVERINE -(SilverCity/ Westshore) Hairy-faced and Adamantium-clawed Hugh Jackman travels to Japan to confront the diabolical Silver Samurai, in an entertaining Marvel Comics smackdown that combines X-Men flair with martial arts and Yakuza elements. Directed by James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 to Yuma).

weekend ★★★ WORLD WAR Z -(Roxy, 9pm) Countries topple and armies shatter in the face of a zombie pandemic, as a shaggy-haired Brad Pitt tries to save the world. This is an intense and intelligent movie that uses zombies to embody the more plausible horror of a SARS-like threat to the planet. ★★★ YOU’RE NEXT -(Empire 6) If sunny summer fun isn’t your style, maybe check out this clever and darkly funny home-invasion splatterfest about a gang of maniacs that attacks a family . . . only to discover that someone in the house is even better at killing than they are.

With Pierce Brosnan. ★★★½ MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING -(Sun.-Mon., Aug. Sept. 1-2: 7:00, 9:10) Talented director Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers) takes on the Bard with a modern-day retelling of Shakespeare’s classic comedy about two pairs of lovers with very different ideas about life and love. This is a sharp, funny and engaging bit of filmmaking. ★★★★ JURASSIC PARK -(Tues., Sept. 3: 7pm, 9:20) Steven Spielberg’s classic 1993 tale of a dinosaur theme park where the toothy critters unexpectedly run amok should set the tone rather nicely for a new semester at university. ★★★THIS IS THE END -(Wed.Thurs., Sept. 4-5: 7:15, 9:20) In this truly wacked comedy, stars such as Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and Jonah Hill play themselves as they party at James Franco’s house — only to find themselves confronting a terrifying, demon-filled apocalypse. Although a bit over-praised and rather slapdash, this is also very funny (in a shamelessly crude sort of way).

National-bound Vikes sweep Ivy League tour The UVic Vikes women's field hockey team ran a perfect table during its annual New England trip this week. The tour was the team’s first test ahead of a big season as it prepares to host the CIS National Championship, Oct. 31 to Nov. 2. The Vikes beat Yale 3-1, Harvard 4-1 and Dartmouth 6-3 on Saturday, Monday and Tuesday, respectively. Second-year player Amanda Amanda Kurianowicz Kurianowicz led the Vikes with two goals against Yale and four more against Dartmouth. Kathleen Leahy and Rosie Beale both scored twice during the tour. “We may be hosting the championship this year. But we want to deserve and earn our spot at the tournament," said head coach Lynne Beecroft, in her 30th season with the club. The Vikes start the Canada West season Sept. 21 in Calgary. UVic’s home opener is against the UBC Thunderbirds on Sept. 28 and 29 at the UVic turf. For the full schedule visit govikesgo.com.

Travis Paterson News staff

While other B.C. Hockey League teams continued to cut players this week, Bill Bestwick’s biggest decision was how to configure his Victoria Grizzlies’ line pairings. The Grizzlies are on the ice at 7 p.m. tonight (Aug. 30) for an exhibition game at Juan de Fuca Arena versus the Cowichan Capitals. The two teams will play again tomorrow night in Duncan. It’s worth a reminder that general manager and head coach Bestwick’s lineup for 2013-14 is rekindled from a team that he and assistant GM/coach Craig Didmon whipped up in six weeks during a whirlwind summer of 2012. They rebuilt a mighty engine considering the short notice. That roster nearly drove the team to the 2012-13 regular season championship before getting knocked out of the playoffs in the second round. It makes this season Bestwick and Didmon’s first chance to ice a team with long-term success in mind, which meant making some tough trades in the offseason. “We traded to make room to recruit the players we want and

offence from the back end. Bestwick’s room-making trades also moved captain Zach Urban and two of the team’s bigger players from last year, Jaden Schmeisser and Kade Pilton. “We’ve brought in size, but size isn’t enough on its own. You need mobility and we’ve tried to add that as well,” Bestwick said. At 6-foot-2, 205 lbs., Adams is looking to fill the leadership gap left vacant by Urban and Jones, while also playing a multi-faceted game. “There’s a lot of young, new guys, and a lot of opportunity hopefully for me on the power play and penalty kill. I hope to be a team leader and contribute on and off the ice,” said Adams, who accrued 118 penalty minutes last season in 43 games. While Adams is also hoping to be a regular contributor to the Grizzlies’ attack, all indications so far are that Nick Charif, of Edmonton, can replace Jones. “Charif moves the puck well, will provide offence five-on-five, and can recreate (what Jones did) and there’s a chance he could be even better,” Bestwick said. The Grizzlies start the regular season at the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack agains the Penticton Vees on Sept. 6 and Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Sept. 7. sports@vicnews.com BEAUTY!

Give them power. Give them confidence. Give them control.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.

It’s so easy to get started… call

The only thing they asked is that their ALYN EDWARDS guests bring their CLASSIC classic or specialRIDES interest car for display on the streets of their neighbourhood. They also asked guests to bring their cheque book or cash for the eighth time they have organized the 30th Avenue Car Show. “The only time the neighbours complained were the years we didn’t have our car show,” Ruth says of the seven shows they have organized since 2004 with her neighbours. More than 100 special-interest vehicles lined the streets and private driveways of the small exclusive neighborhood of West Elgin Estates from noon onward. Owners of classics, hot rods and modified cars attend the show from as far away as Kamloops, Sechelt, Vancouver Island and

neighbour donated a personally handcrafted tea box made from a precious wood from South America,” Ruth says. Many local food suppliers stepped up to the table to ensure the buffet was amazing, including Sun Rich Fresh Foods with fresh cut fruit products, Freybe

Meats, GFS Food and McJac’s Roadhouse Grille & Bake Shoppe. “This is not your typical food sold at car shows,” Ruth enthuses. “There are five sevenfoot-long tables of food including beef, chicken, cabbage rolls and lasagna along with numerous salads and vegetables not to mention dessert.” The afternoon event featured door prizes, a 50/50 draw, a kids’ activity corner, a caricaturist and the cruise-ship-style baron of beef buffet. A live auction of approximately 50 donated items valued from $10 to $600 was conducted by veteran auctioneer Wild Bill Henke, including a ride in a 1952 Harvard airplane owned by Ruth’s neighbour. “The ladies like to attend this event because we offer a garden tour of our neighbour’s well known three-quarter-acre garden,” Ruth says. The idea for the event started when a group of friends attending a car local car show came back to the home Ruth shares with husband Barry Burns. “The neighbours really liked the cars that were parked

here and I got the idea to do a small neighbourhood car show the next year as a means to raise funds for Children’s Hospital,” Ruth says. The first car show in 2003 hosted at Ruth and Barry’s residence was an overwhelming success in bringing the community together with special-interest car owners. The $850 raised went to Children’s Hospital. Since then, the car show has seen $55,000 donated to Children’s Hospital. This year, Ruth and Barry’s community car show raised nearly $10,000 for the charity. Barry is an avowed car nut having spent his career managing car dealerships. He displayed his rare concoursquality 1969 Camaro Z28 at previous shows. This year, he displayed his new black Camaro ZL1 with Nickey performance enhancements. So why do they do it? Ruth says everyone knows someone who has been at Children’s Hospital. “My cousin’s daughter is alive today because of the care she received when she was from four to 15 years old. She is now 19 and healthy.”

Multi-talented: The new Mercedes-Benz GLA Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

Progressive in design, serene in dayto-day motoring and offering off-road capability, the Mercedes-Benz GLA impressively reinterprets the compact SUV segment. The first Mercedes-Benz in the fast-growing compact SUV segment is highly maneuverable around town (length x width x height: 4417 x 1804 x 1494 millimetres), lively on country roads and dynamic and efficient on the highway (Cd figure 0.29). The high-quality appointments, developed with close attention to detail, and the flexible interior clearly position the GLA as a compact premium SUV. The new GLA rounds off the

extensive SUV portfolio of MercedesBenz. With five model series (GLA, GLK, ML, GL and G) the company offers the widest range of any European premium manufacturer to meet all the individual mobility wishes of its customers. With the GLA, yet another model series becomes the leader in its segment with respect to aerodynamic efficiency. Its Cd figure is 0.29. Numerous measures have also been taken to reduce wind noise in the GLA. These include a multi-level door sealing concept, additional sealing of the joint between the tailgate and the roof and side seals on the tailgate. Particularly rigid window frames prevent the airflow from pulling on the doors at higher speeds, and reduce vibrations.

The GLA is the fifth member of the Mercedes-Benz SUV family.

Ford F-150 to offer ability to run on compressed natural gas in Canada Ford will offer the 2014 F-150 with an optional engine that has the ability to run on compressed natural gas, making Ford the only manufacturer with an available CNG/LPG-capable half-ton pickup. The 2014 Ford F-150 with 3.7-litre V6 engine will be available this fall with a factory-installed, gaseous-fuel

tank of gas, depending on the tank size selected. CNG/LPG engine prep from the factory costs approximately $375 before the customer chooses a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier to supply fuel tanks, fuel lines and unique fuel injectors. Up fit pricing will vary depending on fuel tank capacity.

prep package that includes hardened valves, valve seats, pistons and rings so it can operate on either natural gas or gasoline through separate fuel systems. When the 3.7-litre V6 F-150 is equipped with a CNG/LPG engine package, it is capable of achieving more than 1,200 kilometres on one

Customers are enthusiastically responding to this powerful array of choices. Since reintroducing the option in 2009, Ford has established itself as the leader in CNG/LPG engine sales. Ford is on pace to sell more than 15,000 CNG/LPG-prepped vehicles this year in North America, an increase of more than 25 per cent from 2012.

three configurable modes that prioritize information for daily commuting, weekend canyon carving and track events.  Flanked by three analogue gauges for speed, fuel level, and engine-coolant temperature, the eight-inch liquid-crystal display screen in the centre of the cluster is organized into sport, tour and track themes that change with the Driver Mode Selector. Each display theme is designed for a specific driving scenario and can be configured through applications found in the “app tray.” Here are 10 configurable display features that will help drivers realize the Stingray’s capabilities: 1. Tour theme – Displayed when the Stingray is in Weather, Eco, or Tour drive mode, this is the most modern display, providing essential vehicle information drivers want for commuting or long-distance driving and includes key vehicle information and multimedia displays. 2. Sport theme – Displayed when the Stingray is in Sport mode, this theme is designed to recall the classic sports-car experience, with a single, radial tachometer dominating the display. 3. Track theme – Inspired by the cluster of the Corvette

The Corvette Stingray can supply 69 unique sources of information in three advanced instrument panel cluster display modes.

Racing C6.R, this theme prioritizes the information vital for a successful track outing, including a “hockey stick” style tachometer, large gear indicator and shift lights. 4. Adjustable redline – All themes feature an adjustable redline that shows the suggested maximum engine speed as low as 3,500 rpm when the engine is cold. 5. Tachometer ‘halo’ – The Sport theme features a ring around the tachometer that glows from yellow to amber to red as engine rpms increase. 6. Shift lights – The track theme features shift lights influenced by the C6.R, which illuminate from the outside-in, transition from green to yellow to blue and flash at redline providing an easy-to-see shift notification at high speeds.

7. Friction-bubble/cornering force – The friction bubble that displays lateral and longitudinal G-forces allows drivers to measure how close they are to the Stingray’s limits. 8. Tire temperature gauge – Leveraging the existing Tire Pressure Monitoring System, this patented system informs the driver as the tires warm up from cold to warm to hot, with hot being the optimal temperature for peak grip and track performance. 9. Acceleration timer – The interactive timer features programmable start/end speeds, which enable drivers to measure any acceleration run. 10. Lap timer – Shows current, previous and best lap times, enabling drivers to measure their consistency while lapping a road course.

The Chevrolet Volt extended range electric car will have a new, lower starting price of $36,895 for the 2014 model.

$ Courtesy Cars Available

*

The Chevrolet Volt, already recognized for having the most satisfied owners, will soon come with another people pleaser: a lower price. The 2014 model will start at $36,895, plus $1,600 destination fee (excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees). If consumers include provincial consumer credits, available in Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, ranging from $5,000 to $8,231, pricing could start at $29,995. Volt owners who charge regularly typically drive more than 1,400 kilometres between fill-ups and visit the gas station about once a month. The 2014 Volt will continue to provide owners with impressive fuel consumption of just 2.4L/100km (electric) and 6.7 city/5.9

highway L/100km on gasoline power without any need to change their daily driving habits. Today’s Volt owners across North America have logged 364 million miles (585 million kilometres), including 225 million electric miles (362 million kilometres). The Volt continues to be the best selling plug-in vehicle in Canada, outselling all plug-ins and EV’s in 2012 combined, and is attracting new buyers to the Chevrolet brand. Canada’s large urban centres (Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal) continue to be Volt’s largest markets in Canada. The Volt qualifies for access to coveted HOV lanes in these markets where available. The Chevrolet Volt allows gas-free driving for 40 to 80 kilometres depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. The range-extending engine gives the Volt up to 615 kilometres (380 miles) of total driving range.
