Schools open under cloud in district Bargaining sessions underway as school year begins Charla Huber News staff

It’s business as usual for grade school students in Greater Victoria. At least for now. While teachers and school support staff are back at work and are providing regular services, the unions representing the two groups are gearing for a return to the bargaining table. CUPE locals representing support staff meet with the Provincial Bargaining Committee today (Sept. 4) through Friday in hopes of securing a new contract. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said he is hopeful a settlement with clerical staff, custodians, bus drivers and other supInside port staff can be achieved without picket lines disrupting classes. The n Labour disputes minister wouldn’t comment directly are becoming a on talks, except to say school distradition at backtricts are working to set up “savings to-school time accounts,” as they will be required Our View, A4 to fund wage increases within existing budgets for support staff. “Hopefully something will come out of that,” said Gilles Larose, CUPE 382 president. “We pay taxes just like everyone else. Everything is going up (in price) and our wages haven’t been reflecting that.” If an agreement isn’t reached soon, Larose said, it will most likely result in a provincewide strike with about 27,000 CUPE union members on the picket lines, including about 1,100 custodians, grounds and maintenance workers from CUPE 382 within the Greater Victoria School District. “We have been without a contract since June of last year (2012),” Larose said. The contract expired after a two-year wage freeze was imposed across the B.C. public service sector. CUPE is seeking raises of two per cent per year.

Nonetheless, the experience made an impact on Carter. “What I was impressed with was not only their speed in getting there, but the fact they were so caring and compassionate,” she said. “Oak Bay should be very proud of the work they do.” During this year’s 75th anniversary

celebrations for the fire department, Carter asked what she could do to help out. The topic of defibrillators came up and she was told the department was using three external units that were nearing the end of their serviceable life. Rather than contribute to the firefighter’s benevolent fund, she decided to donate a new unit to the department.

Firefighters around the district are igniting as much as they’re putting out this week, as the 2014 Greater Victoria firefighters calendar hits the streets. The calendar, a joint fundraising initiative from the four Greater Victoria professional fire departments – Oak Bay, Esquimalt, Victoria and Saanich – is an effort to raise money for southern Island pediatric units through Victoria Hospitals Foundation. While the 12-month show of fiery men will set donors back $20, proceeds go towards the group’s $250,000 pledge to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Victoria General Hospital. “What drew me into saying yes for being part of the calendar is just my commitment to raising this money,” said Lt.

And while the 2014 and future 2015 calendars still show off shirtless muscles, sculpted with some classic black-andwhite photography, the poses are much “softer,” Stewart said, than the traditional fare. “In years past, there was this real push to have these manly images with tough faces and action shots. Now, we have more of the firefighters just posing and hanging out, with more smiles and a gentle approach as opposed to a performance.” The calendars started circulating in recent weeks and Stewart said it’s been very humbling to have members of the community recognize him. “I’m not really a shy person, but this really requires you to

For the birds Oak Bay resident turns bird-feeding into an institution Danielle Pope News staff

It’s a regular sunny Monday at Oak Bay Marina – a day local residents have come to love. Not just human ones though; this is one day the seagulls and crows look forward to most. Some days, Jim Barry doesn’t even have to get out of his car for the birds to spot him in the parking lot, just before the Marina Coffee House opens. They flit above his vehicle waiting for him to get out. When he does, crows wait in nearby trees while the seagulls swarm above. The birds aren’t usually shy with their requests. Typically, passers-by gawk at the shenanigans as some seagulls swoop to catch the treats while others rest on Barry’s head, shoulders or knees when he’s sitting. “I can’t stand pigeons, though,” Barry says. “They dump on everything.” Locals regard Barry as a bit of an institution when it comes to nurturing the flying inhabitants

of Oak Bay. The soft-spoken 83-year-old has been making this part of his routine for a handful of years. He says he took over the role when an older woman, also known around the area for feeding birds, died. Yet Barry, who has lived in the area since he was seven, knows about a lot more than birds. “Oak Bay used to be a place you had to know someone to get somewhere.” As a child, he says, he collected golf balls at Victoria Golf Club and caddied for a number of people who thought they were very important. When he started playing golf as a teenager, thanks to a relationship he’d formed with the owner of the club, senior players would often give him a hard time. I might be 16, he would tell them, but I’ve got two arms, two legs and a lot of golf balls, so buzz off. “The biggest change I’ve seen in this town is that there are a lot more rich people now. There were rich people then, but more now,” he says. “I’ve always liked birds.” Barry meets regularly at the Marina Coffee House with a handful of old-time friends from the community, including former

Jim Barry feeds the birds bread, peanuts and other treats in the early mornings near Oak Bay Marina. Oak Bay fire chief Gerry Adam, to reminisce and catch up on news. He gets there early enough to reserve their favourite table, orders his $5 drink with a $5 tip to the barista and tells her no hurry. There’s plenty of time until his wife will be by to pick him up. It’s a routine he’s grown attached to. He could come every day, he says, but most weeks he makes it down Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the birds. Which, by the way, he calls people. “I feed anything,” he says. “There are times I have 20, 30, 40 people (birds) around me, flying all over my head, waiting for me.

They get used to you.” Barry used to take the stairs down to the rocky shore near the marina and play country music, his favourite, from a portable radio. The birds would follow him down, all the while anticipating peanuts, bread and any treats that would make their way out of his pocket. These days, he typically corrals them in the parking lot, after he hurt his knee in a fall. “They really do get to know you and trust you,” he says. “You stand out here with a piece of bread long enough and, you watch, they’ll come get it right from you, too.” news@mondaymag.com

Teachers’ union begins bargaining next month Continued from Page A1 “Talks are resuming and the intent is to find a solution for all parties involved,” said Scott Sutherland, Ministry of Education spokesperson. “We want to try and find a way to end this cycle of disruption. “The savings have to be found within the existing budgets to support modest wage increases for staff,” Sutherland said. The bargaining committee, he added, is creating a template for the CUPEs to follow. The government’s co-operative gains mandate required all raises to be funded by internal savings such as shared administrative functions. The teachers will need to wait until next month to take their seat at the bargaining table. “School will start as usual with

gaining table,” said Benula Larsen, Greater Victoria Teachers’ Association president. “We haven’t taken

a strike vote or anything. What we want is a deal at the table.” “Class size composition remedy is the No. 1 issue,” said Larsen, adding teachers are also hoping for improvements to salaries and preparation time allotments. “These were all taken away from us.” “There is no plan there that the school districts are going to have to pick up any of those costs. Those cost drivers are the province, and we will be negotiating that. That’s why the teachers wanted to negotiate directly with us,” said Fassbender. He said any increase to teachers’ wages would not be found through cutting any school programs or services. The Ministry of Eduction is hoping to secure a 10-year deal with the teachers across the province. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Support for arts and culture on Island announced Mary Ellen Green News staff

Oak Bay’s Canadian College of Performing Arts will receive $600,000 over two years under the Canada Arts Training Fund. The funding, highlighted in an announcement from the Department of Canadian Heritage on Friday at the Belfry Theatre, represents an increase of approximately 30 per cent, says college director Ron Schuster. “It puts us in a better position because we were falling behind in many areas. It will help us face some of our current challenges, like trying to find and develop a new facility,” he said. Maintaining the college’s standards means hiring the best faculty and keeping up with wage demands for staff and faculty, Schuster added. “It’s not quite enough to help with the facility side of things, but at least we’re in a better position to maintain a happy faculty and staff and a solid operation. Without the heritage funding I don’t know if we could have existed this long in Victoria.” Other local organizations receiving funding include the Dance Victoria Society, the Victoria Symphony Society, the Victoria International Chalk Art Society, the Victoria Foundation, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, La Société des Francophones de Victoria, Theatre SKAM Association and the Victoria Film Festival. arts@mondaymag.com

OUR VIEW

Another year, another dispute With all the busyness of the summer months now over, September is a great time to fall back into a routine. And the provincial government and unions representing teachers and school support staff appear to have their annual routines down pat by now. September, especially since their labour disputes seem to be never-ending in recent years, is when both sides of the bargaining table argue that the other party is uncooperative and doesn’t truly have students’ interests at heart. This annual back-and-forth of finger-pointing just tells us neither side truly believes it’s all about the children. Accusatory bargaining in a public forum does nothing to help the situation we’re faced with, a situation where the kids truly should be the priority. We agree with both sides when they say a deal needs to be reached soon. We agree when they both say that deal has to happen without disrupting students in the classroom. And we agree that education is essential to our kids’ futures, and is essential in growing our economy. But we can’t be teaching our kids to play nice and do good when we aren’t walking the talk ourselves. It’s the worst-kept secret that labour relations of any kind – essential service or not – are selfserving to some extent. The province and the teachers both need to quit pretending that they’re only fighting for the kids. They need to honestly acknowledge their differences and what they’re fighting for, and find a compromise that isn’t going to negatively impact the goings on in the classroom. Back-to-school season should be a happy, positive experience for everyone. That hasn’t been the case for many years now, and we need to get resolutions soon for the teachers’ and support staff’s contracts. Otherwise, we’re going to have yet another negative school year that could be severely impacted by two massive labour disputes. Let’s do this for the kids. What do you think?

hour of work can arise when it’s paid at quadruple time. The Surrey school district contract details how even “spare board” employees are to be enrolled in the municipal pension plan, a defined-benefit system most private-sector employees can only dream about. Then there are paid sick days. The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation reports that the average B.C. private sector worker took 7.4 sick days last year. The public sector average was 12. The Surrey contract details the windfall of unused sick days that must be paid out to employees who retire as early as age 55. The maximum is 150 days, for a lavish perk only available to employees hired before July 1, 1996. Even so, we’ll be paying these bonuses out for years to come. It goes on and on. Six weeks’ paid vacation after 20 years, with an extra day added for every year after that. There are many little things, such as a $60 “swimsuit allowance” for teacher aides who take part in swimming instruction. This is not to devalue the work done by these people. It is to suggest that given the growing gap between public and private employment benefits, finding savings is reasonable.

Clive Drive development unsuitable in present form The JN Development Group has applied to demolish an eight-unit apartment building at the corner of Clive Drive and Oak Bay Avenue and have requested major rezoning and bylaw variances to replace it with a 19-unit building with only 17 parking spaces. The proposed building requires a lot size of 2,000 square metres. The Clive lot is 1,116 square metres. This site would have the highest density in Oak Bay. We do have an Official Community Plan and bylaws. Most recently, council was split 3-3 on voting to move the project to the next stage. Failure to respect the existing zoning and bylaws suggests that council has forgotten its role in enforcing these bylaws. The role of council is to protect their citizens/voters by upholding current bylaws and exercising good governance. The OCP and bylaws are for everyone. Until democratically changed, these bylaws ensure appropriate, consistent community development to be adhered to by mayor and council. If this redevelopment proceeds as proposed, council will be setting a precedent for further major rezoning and bylaw variances. It will become development anarchy. Other developers will demand the same relaxation of bylaws and council will have to accommodate them. Overdevelopment will then proceed in an unruly and haphazard manner. The community must oppose the Clive/Oak Bay Avenue decision. If approved, any citizen in Oak Bay could expect an inappropriate development next to them.

Council may accommodate small variances and appropriate spot zoning. If they decide to violate the existing OCP, zoning and bylaws by approving major variances, residents will lose respect for their elected officials and Oak Bay will become a far less liveable community. Council must turn down this proposal in its current form. Peter and Pamela Gooch Oak Bay

District doing little to slow down traffic Re: Bike Lanes still a dream (News, Aug.16). Phillip Wynne’s response to this article (Letters, Aug. 28), matches our experience. Our group of residents on Foul Bay Road and Granite Street have been trying for years to get some action from Oak Bay to make Foul Bay safer, slow down traffic and install a crosswalk. The district is conspicuous by its inaction and reluctance to slow traffic. Bike lanes? Forget it. The contrast with Victoria is glaring. With new bike lanes on the south portion of Foul Bay, roundabouts throughout areas such as Fernwood and new crosswalks in many places, Victoria is following up on its policy of placing pedestrian safety and bicycles first. Strangely, there is a Centennial Trail crossing Foul Bay at Brighton Avenue, but no crosswalk. It might slow down traffic, the average speed of which is closer to 50 or 60 km/h in this 30 km/h zone. I guess we have to wait until someone is seriously injured or killed before anything is done. David Williams Oak Bay

Guide outlines ‘green’ resources Danielle Pope News staff

Going green has never been so easy, thanks to a new guide that points Islanders toward sustainable resources. Vancouver Island Green Scene, the not-for-profit producers of the guide, is kicking off the initiative with a Sept. 9 networking lunch at the Victoria Marriott Hotel featuring guest speaker Green MLA Andrew Weaver. Frances Litman, founder of the Creatively United For the Planet festival and Green Scene

spokesperson, says the aim is to ensure Vancouver Island remains a healthy and beautiful place to live, work, eat and play. “We’ve really wanted to see our green ‘scene’ develop and watch the area become more resilient,” she said. “And while events like the festival are great, we also wanted to keep the conversation going all year round.” The online resource guide links viewers with values-based businesses, organizations and resources. Monthly lunch sessions and other events are planned to attract participation.

Litman encourages people to view the group’s website at vancouverislandgreenscene.org and consider becoming a member. She admits the application process is detailed (some businesses have been rejected), but says help is available. “This really is a labour of love. We aren’t operating with any grants, but we feel we are giving a lot of value to the community, which is always growing.” Register online for the lunch by today (Sept. 4). Cost for nonmembers is $20. news@mondaymag.com

Amalgamation group kicks off signature drive Kyle Slavin News staff

The Capital Region Municipal Amalgamation Society has officially launched a petition seeking support from Greater Victoria residents who want to see a non-binding amalgamation question on the municipal ballot in 2014. John Vickers, spokesperson for the society, also known as Amalgamation Yes, says they want to collect 100,000 signatures from residents who want to have a democratic voice. “We’ve been having this discussion for too long. Even those people not necessar-

ily for amalgamation, a lot of them feel it’s time the people had their own say in a nonbinding way to get a sense (of where the region’s population stands on) how we’re governed,” he said. Regardless of the views of some Capital Region mayors, he said, it’s important that people get a chance to express their view on the issue. The petition asks that the following question be put on the ballot in each of the region’s 13 municipalities during next fall’s election: Are you in favour of reducing the number of municipalities in the Capital Regional District through amalgamation? Vickers stresses that the question isn’t about being in favour of amalgamation, it’s about exploring the possibilities of amalgamation. In July the City of Colwood

pledged to gauge their residents’ thoughts on amalgamation in the coming election. “What does it mean to people in the community?” asked Mayor Carol Hamilton of what they hope to learn in the process. “What do they think it will achieve if that were to take place? Is there an interest even in doing it?”

This fall Colwood will launch its own group to look at public consultation options. Hamilton expects it will take six to eight months of open houses and surveying the community to gauge public opinion. Vickers says Amalgamation Yes aims to spend fall and winter engaging residents in the petitioning and public consultation process. That will include public meetings and forums, canvassing neighbourhoods and setting up information booths at events. The group hopes to acquire 100,000 signatures by spring 2014, but still needs to bring the petition to the 13 municipalities in hopes of getting the question on each ballot.

While bake sales and homemade quilts might be enough for some grandmothers, a group of Victoriaarea seniors are taking active fundraising to a new level. The seventh annual Victoria Grandmothers for Africa long distance cycling event takes place Sept. 6 to 8 between Campbell River and Victoria. About 30 grandmothers and five support staff will make the 275-kilometre journey to help raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. The campaign sends much-needed supplies to women in African countries who are taking care of orphaned grandchildren. To date, local grandmas and their supporters have raised over $228,000. A celebration of their efforts will happen Sunday (Sept. 8) at the B.C. legislature, starting at 2:30 p.m. The event will include a performance by the Gettin’ Higher Choir and Wontanara Drum and Dance.

Comedy duo explores their bodies

MARy ELLEN GREEN arts@mondaymag.com

et ready for a journey into the ear of one of the funniest people to ever live in Victoria when sketch comedy duo Peter n’ Chris mount a special Fringe extension performance of their award winning comedy Peter n’ Chris Explore Their Bodies. The show will take you deep into Chris’ digestive tract, where the Hungry Games unfold. “It’s more of a fantasy genre,” says Chris Wilson, born and raised in Victoria. “My head is being taken over by hypochondria, which is personified by evil little men. They take over my body and we go inside via a magic housecoat to fight it.” “Whenever I explain it, it sounds really dumb — and it is dumb. It’s Lord of the Rings meets Narnia meets Gladiator.” The latest in the pair’s string of critically acclaimed comedies, Explore their Bodies took home a Just for Laughs Best Comedy Award at the Montreal Fringe, a Best of Fest award in Winnipeg, a Pick of the Fringe award at last year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival and was an official selection of the Chicago SketchFest and a featured act at the Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival in 2012. It’s making its Victoria debut at the Metro Studio (1411 Quadra) Sept. 4-5. Last time the duo performed a show in Victoria was at UVic’s Phoenix Theatre Spotlight on Alumni with Peter n’ Chris: The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel, a show which was recently nominated for a Canadian Comedy

Award. Peter n’ Chris were also nominated for Best Sketch Troupe at the CCA’s. Wilson moved to Toronto in January while Peter Carlone lives in Vancouver. The pair have been

collaborating and rehearsing via Skype ever since. “It’s something we did when we both lived in Vancouver. Peter lived on the East Side and I was in Kits, so it’s somewhat the same,” says Wilson. “We like to write on the road anyway. Even though it’s a busy time, there’s always some time during the day to write.” The pair cruises the Fringe circuit over the summer (they didn’t get into the Victoria or Vancouver Fringes this year), spending time with what Wilson calls the “travelling hobo gypsy theatre family,” and usually have a new show written by the end of the season. They currently have about 50 per cent of a new show written, loosely based on Back to the Future, with a working title of Backwards to the Forward Times. “Something like that, or as close to Back to the Future as we can get without getting in trouble,” Wilson says. The pair met while studying theatre at UVic in 2005. In 2008, Wilson applied for the Victoria Fringe and got in. They wrote and performed their first full-length show The Peter n’ Chris Show with Peter n’ Chris in 2009. They’ve written “four and a half” shows since, with a serious rewrite of the first show included. “It was basically what we do now, but it wasn’t any good,” says Wilson. “It was good enough that we were able to try again.” Wilson attributes the pair’s common education for making it so easy to work together. “We both came through the same program, so it was easy to get started. We speak the same language, have the same education and took the same movement classes. I think we both find each other quite funny and trust that if one of us is laughing, the audience might be too.” The Sept. 4-5 performances of Peter n’ Chris Explore their Bodies are $15 at ticketrocket.org.

The CEO of the Pacific Institute of Sports Excellence, who comes from a strong tennis background, won the recent Canadian Tennis Championships for 55- to 59-yearold singles at the Steve Stevens Senior Nationals played in Vancouver. Bettauer defeated fellow Victoria player Art Hobbs in the men’s 55 final, 7-5, 6-2.

Prospects land Royals signings

The Victoria Royals signed three forwards last week, Landon Welykholowa, Matt Dykstra and Jared Dmytriw. All three have committed to the Royals and will compete for a spot either this or next season. Welykholowa, from Calgary, was originally drafted by the Prince Albert Raiders in the 2011 WHL Bantam Draft, and landed the contract as an invite. Dykstra, a resident of Edmonton, is a fourth round pick of the Royals in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft. Dmytriw was drafted by the Royals in the fourth round of the 2013 WHL draft. Dmytriw is set to play midget for the Moose Jaw Generals this year.

Robert Bettauer and Hobbs reached the men’s 55 doubles final. Victoria’s Hannes Blum had a strong performance, finishing third in the 45 singles division, and second in the 45 men’s doubles with Shawn Lusignan. Karen Clarke also made the ladies 50 doubles final.

Evan Horvath was great with the kids during ball hockey camp at Braefoot Park last week but the question remains as to how he’ll fare on the ice for the Saanich Braves this season. The Braves kick off the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season at home on Friday (Sept. 6) against Westshore Wolves at Pearkes. Coach Brad Cook has already committed to 16-year-old Horvath of Whistler, a solid endorsement since the roster is still not set. Junior B teams tend to keep a number of spots open for returning players who are late cuts from major junior and junior A teams. “Shawn McBride is a full timer with the Victoria Grizzlies this year and Seamus McGuire has gone to Flin Flon to try and land a Jr. A spot, so we wish those guys all the best,” Cook said. Returning to lead the Braves are Nick Guerra and VIJHL defenceman of the year Garrett

Death of fallen senior prompts reminder Daniel Palmer News staff

The death of an 81-year-old Victoria man who fell in his apartment and lay undiscovered for nearly a week has sparked a reminder to seniors to keep in regular contact with family or acquaintances. Building caretakers of the 108-unit Chown Place complex, run by the Gorge View Society, found the man in his unit clinging to life on Aug. 26. He died

later in hospital. “Sometimes even with a lot of safeguards in place, there can be a perfect storm of people being away, misinformation,” said Jane Louie, administrator at Gorge View Society. Louie said the society doesn’t provide daily monitoring of its residents, as many seniors prefer an independent lifestyle. “We encourage all our residents to know each other and let us know if there are any concerns.”

Chown Place residents met last week to discuss the tragedy as well as current safeguards for monitoring. Victoria police issued an advisory to seniors and their families following another incident last week. Officers discovered a 55-year-old man in Esquimalt who suffered from a debilitating fall and had been alone for four or five days. Various organizations operate programs that help keep an eye on seniors who live alone.

The Oak Bay Volunteer Society’s Good Day program connects seniors with a daily phone call from a trained volunteer in the community. For more information, call 250595-1034. James Bay New Horizons Society also runs a no-charge seniors reassurance program, where trained staff provide daily check-in calls to seniors who live alone. For more information, call 250- 386-4432. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Children’s Eyewear Care: A primer for parents So your child is the proud owner of a pair of glasses! You should be aware that those glasses, at any given time, could be knocked to the floor, stepped on, sat on, squished in the bottom of a backpack, or even used as a sling shot. To ensure your child understands how important it is to treat his or her eyewear responsibly, here are other ideas to prolong the life of a pair of glasses: Make it an open and shut case. When the glasses aren’t in use, keep them safely tucked inside a hard case, marked with the child’s name and telephone number. Be a clean freak. Lenses should be cleaned at least once a day with warm soapy water or an appropriate lens cleaner – never wipe your lenses when they are dry! Jump in with both hands. Remind your child never to remove his or her glasses with only one hand – this is often the cause of many a misaligned and uncomfortable frame. Get adjusted. Glasses that stay in good shape are glasses that are readjusted from time to time, particularly if pressure marks appear on your child’s nose or behind his or her ears. And here’s a piece of good news: today’s eyeglasses are sturdier than ever, and meant to withstand general wear and tear.
