Sidney seeks SBA debt
Loss of street market left SBA without major source of revenue Steven Heywood News staff
The Town of Sidney will explore additional collections options in order to recover nearly $20,000 owed to the municipality by the Sidney Business Association (SBA). Town staff sought leave to write off the debt, created when the SBA did not pay the Town’s cost associated with the SBA’s running of the Thursday night street market in 2012. Only $1,000 has been recovered and the Town has since awarded the contract to run the summer market to another operator — with the same cost recovery stipulation. Andrew Hicik, director of corporate services, said it isn’t likely the Town will be able to collect on the debt and had asked council to approve wiping it off the books. Councillor Tim Chad questioned that during a meeting of council recently, asking if staff had sought all collection options before coming to council. “There’s nothing to collect against,” Hicik replied. That sparked questions from council on the status of the SBA. “Is it still running?” asked Coun. Steve Price. Hicik said it still has an office that’s open but added it’s activity of late seems low. Bill Buckley, president of the SBA, says the organization is still operating but admitted losing the summer market did hurt their bottom line. “We didn’t have buckets of money to begin with,” he said, adding the Town didn’t seem to want to support them when it decided to take away the market last year. He said the SBA hasn’t been able to catch up to the payments on this debt. He added they had been using revenue from the markets to cover the previous year’s costs. Now, without that source of income, they have to find other repayment options and that was the subject of a meeting with Town officials late last month. Buckley said he met with Town CAO Randy Humble to discuss the outstanding debt. Humble told the PNR, however, that meeting did not address this issue. Humble added the Town has not yet determined how it will recover the debt, and that will involve a specific meeting with the SBA. Buckley said when they first started running the markets, the cost charged by the Town was low but continued to go up. PleASe See: Sidney Pier Council would like to see, page 10

Crews clear brush off property at 9395 East Saanich Rd. The land is the site of what has been dubbed Canora Mews, a 40-unit small-lot residential development. Steven Heywood/News staff
Half of new homes in North Saanich spoken for Small lot development on East Saanich Road offered workers a pre-sale opportunity Steven Heywood News staff
As the brush is cleared from property at 9395 East Saanich Rd., more than half of the 40 residential lots planned for the site are being spoken for by people who work for businesses based in North Saanich. Keycorp Consulting offered the lots to employees within the umbrella of the Sidney and North Saanich Industrial Group, Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce and North Saanich Volunteer Fire Department. As of the conclusion of the initial offering and open houses last week, 27 couples or individuals had expressed an interest in buying one of the new homes. The two weeks between Sept. 7 and 21 is the period allowed for financing to be secured and down
payments placed on each lot. “The vast majority of them work in North Saanich but do not live there,” says Rohan Rupf, director of Keycorp’s marketing branch. “We’re very happy with that response.” Chris Fudge, executive director of the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, said the initial response by some of their members’ employees was good. “It piqued some interest,” he said. The project, now called Canora Mews, was the subject of more than a year of debate and controversy in the District of North Saanich. The development is planning to put 40 units on smaller-than-typcial lots within the municipality, with an option for secondary suites, and that had local politicians split over how affordable,workforce housing could
be attained in North Saanich. That division continues, as council prepares to debate a consultant’s report on the District’s housing strategy at a meeting on Sept. 9. Gary Lunn, one of the project developers, said Canora Mews is not the model for future growth in North Saanich. It is, he said, an appropriate development for the location within the municipality. The response to their initial sales offering, Lunn agreed, confirmed the need for workforce housing in North Saanich at a price point below the average house price in the community. The homes at Canora Mews will cost between $399,000 and “the high $400,000s” said Rupf. Lunn added the down payments will be kept in trust until construction can begin. With permits in place to clear the
land, Lunn said the development still has to follow North Saanich’s policies to proceed with construction of the homes. While he said he’s not anticipating any snags, there is still the outstanding issue of connecting the site to the District’s sewer system. Lunn said they have already committed to paying $15,000 per lot to cover the infrastructure costs. He said the District is still looking into its connection options, but the developers will still pay what they agreed on. “There will always be permit issues in any process,” Lunn said “but we’re not expecting any serious issues. We’re confident we’ll be able to deliver these new homes on time.” firstname.lastname@example.org

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?

We are repeatedly labour disputes. reminded not only that the last raise First up are 27,000 support was 2009, but that the staff, in a legal strike “average” pay is a mere position. These are $24,000 a year. If that’s the teacher aides, accurate, it reflects a large custodians, bus drivers number of part-timers. and crossing guards.

The B.C. government moved from top rate is $26.59, or $28.78 for workers who qualify for a “trades the post-recession wage freeze to adjustment.” a system they call “co-operative All contracts have rigid seniority gains,” where raises must be and “bumping” clauses to ensure financed by savings in other that new employees absorb any areas of the operation.

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 privatesector 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.

Affordable housing, not higher density Letters to the Editor
o we need affordable houses? Yes. Do we need higher density in North Saanich? No. How can we solve this problem? We are told to never trust a statistic. The same is true for surveys. You can pose a question so that you get the answer you want. It’s called a statistical fallacy. This is not only inaccurate but misleading. If you ask developers, business, industry and stakeholders, you will get their wish list. If you ask residents the answer is different, as we have seen from the survey of the North Saanich Residents Association, who contacted more than 3,500 households.
We have to see the larger picture. North Saanich is the most northern tip of the Peninsula. It has a unique purpose, other than Langford, View Royal or any other CRD municipality. North Saanich is not an isolated municipality either, it is linked to Sidney. We have to see North Saanich and Sidney in a balance to create a healthy environment. Don’t destroy that for some shortsighted reasons. Think of a body. Each body part has its unique purpose, otherwise the body can’t function. North Saanich serves a certain purpose which would be lost in higher density. Don’t let yourself be fooled as if we need higher density - the reason for being successful in North Saanich is
Readers respond: Wrong location Some of the people who have written in about the composting facility in Central Saanich either don’t live in the areas affected or must have major olfactory problems. Sure, living near farms comes with smells but the odour that’s afflicted well over a thousand homes in the Tanner Ridge, Keating, Island View, Martindale and Hunt Valley areas this summer is completely different from the occasional farm aroma. What has been generated by the Foundation Organics composting facility at Stanhope has been unrelenting, rancid and cloying. Contrary to the Stanhope Farms and Foundation Organics lawyer’s claim that the odour has nothing to do with the composting, the stink didn’t start until the plant got into production. How many ways can this composting facility be in the wrong? By composting huge amounts of waste that
it can’t possibly use on site? By generating massive truck traffic, noise and leachate issues? By producing horrific odour affecting thousands of people? Only to name a few. I’m left with many questions. For the partners in Foundation Organics: is being green really about the money for you? For Central Saanich council: why was a building permit issued for this operation when it was so obviously out of character with the surrounding neighbourhood? For the CRD: how much longer will Foundation Organics be allowed to operate outside the rules? And perhaps the most important question of all: what was the CRD thinking to license this business in that location in the first place? Dolores Bell Tanner Ridge
Compost research There has been much back-and-forth on this
larger lots, agricultural, rural, recreational and marine assets - not just for residents but beyond our own municipality. If you take this away, others will suffer as well. It is the secret of successful manipulation: if you tell a story often enough, finally people will believe you and repeat what they heard. But we have to learn to come to a sound judgment. What seems good for one party can destroy the other. To do the right thing is not to follow those who shout the loudest. Let’s work together for a better place to live and leave for future generations.

issue, so how to bridge the gap? On the pro side, the rhetoric boils down to: “composting is good, and farms smell ... get over it.” But there are smells and then there are smells. Having lived near agricultural areas all my life, I am used to farm smells. When manure is spread, the air is ripe for a few hours at a time (a few days at worst) and even when the smells aren’t necessarily pleasant, they always have that natural, earthy, organic undertone. The odour coming from Foundation Organics resembles the odours of vomit and putrefaction and are from the processing of food wastes that are not usual to farming operations. I think we can all agree that as our world shrinks and wastes grow, we definitely need to be more proactive and responsible about how we process our waste materials as a society.
But that doesn’t mean that giving those food-based materials to a farming operation to compost in traditional fashion is the best - or even the only - answer to the problem. When the Regional District of Nanaimo instituted the mandatory processing of commercial food waste a number of years ago (which was expanded into curb-side composting collection), the contract was given to ICC Group (located in Duke Point), which uses a process involving large drum digesters which heat and break down food waste. This process occurs in a mostly sealed environment to prevent the kinds of odours that we in Tanner Ridge have all been choking on. The CRD needs to investigate and work with a company (or companies) that are willing to invest in the appropriate facilities to properly compost food wastes without stinking out the neighbours. This is the win/win
solution we need in Central Saanich. Andree Penrice Tanner Ridge
Two way street I have lived in Sidney for just over two years. During that period I have met at least three cars coming at me the wrong way from the Pier Hotel end of Beacon Avenue. In mentioning it to one of the business owners they said it was almost a common, if not daily, occurrence. How about surveying some of the shop owners and asking them about what they see on an every day basis? Personally, I think that not being able to have this street as a fully operational one way all the way up and down is part of the problem. In my view, having Beacon Avenue a full two way street all the way down is the only sensible and safe way to go. W. Eckersley Sidney

LETTERS Killing deer not a plan for the long term About 14 years ago, I worked with a group of concerned citizens in Central Saanich to preserve wildlife habitat and corridors. Even when our group was on the agenda to make a presentation, we felt that we were blocked from council meetings while developers were given a slap on the wrist after clear cutting areas
that had been marked for preservation by a dedicated environmental assessment team. As far as I know, nothing has ever been done in the Central Saanich area to provide wildlife with space and corridors. Now people are being told that it is illegal to help these animals and that starving them and killing them is the new plan. Native animals are residents with rights and play a vital part in the ecosystem upon which we all
depend. In North Saanich, people clearcut acres of natural habitat in order to raise a few sheep to kill. They also allow their cats to roam the neighbourhood killing our swiftly disappearing songbirds even though they are now protected by the federal Migratory Bird Act. All attempts to uphold the bylaw to protect the birds have been ignored by North Saanich council.
Non-native grey squirrels are also a major threat to both the songbirds and the native squirrels, a threat ignored by both provincial and municipal governments. Deer that are threatening no other species are now being demonized. As the summer droughts worsen due to human environmental mismanagement, no municipal council or bylaw is going to tell me that I can’t give
water to a dehydrated doe and her fawn on my own private property. They also won’t tell me that hunters can legally shoot deer on my property. Unless, of course, they justify their long history of ignorance of the environment and their current lack of compassion for the animals who suffer from it. Virginia Smith North Saanich

Foundation organics to go through CRD appeal process Devon MacKenzie News staff
A Central Saanich composting facility has appealed the Capital Regional District’s decision to suspend their licenses but cancelled a court date last week after they filed a petition in B.C. Supreme Court. Last week, public court documents revealed the company had filed a judicial review petition, but on Friday a scheduled court date was cancelled by Foundation Organics’ lawyer, John Alexander. Earlier in the week, Alexander had said that pending the review of documents by both parties, his clients were hoping a court hear-
ing could be avoided and actions taken to resolve the process through the CRD appeal channel. On Friday, Aug. 30 Andy Orr, a spokesperson for the CRD confirmed the two parties are planning to work through the CRD’s appeal process. “They have decided not to go through the courts but they are still in the appeal process with the CRD which I imagine will happen sometime in the next couple of weeks,” said Orr. Alexander said the petition was filed in response to what the company felt was stalling tactics on the CRD’s part. “The petition was filed primarily because Foundation Organics
had concerns about the speed with which the CRD was working,” Alexander said. “Their foot was on the gas to suspend the license but as soon they did they hit the brakes [on the process] pretty quick.” The suspension of the licence for the composting facility on Lochside Drive was announced Aug. 20 and focused on the acceptance of food waste at the facility. The licence suspension followed contract suspensions with Foundation Organics by the CRD in the first week of August. Alexander confirmed that a facility in the Cowichan Valley Regional District (Cobble Hill) is taking on the food waste that Foundation
Police arrest arson suspect News staff
Police have arrested a woman they believe is connected to a suspicious fire on a farm. On Aug. 25, fire crews received reports of a blaze at a farm residence in the 9400 block of West Saanich Rd. No one was injured in the fire but at the time it was deemed suspicious by investigators.
Further information revealed an earlier incident in which a threat was made to damage the farm by a farm employee. On Aug. 28, Sidney North Saanich RCMP officers were called to investigate a theft of incendiary devices from a business in Sidney. With the assistance of Central Saanich Police, a woman was
taken into custody in connection with that theft and is now facing charges of arson, uttering threats and theft under $5,000. Police are still investigating the incidents and other charges are pending. The woman was remanded in custody by the courts for 30 days with a scheduled court appearance in Victoria on Sept. 26.

the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) to figure out whether Foundation Organics is operating in violation of land use. “The provincial ALC needs to clarify whether the scale of the Foundation Organics facility is considered a permitted farm use under their regulations [and let us know] whether they consider it to be a commercial industrial composting facility that requires special ALC approval. They should certainly be concerned if the volume of compost being produced by the facility exceeds the amount that can be safely and beneficially applied to the land area being farmed,” he explained. email@example.com

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE is hereby given of a PUBLIC HEARING to be held in the Central Saanich Municipal Council Chamber, 1903 Mt. Newton Cross Road, Saanichton, BC, at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, September 9, 2013 with regard to the following proposed Bylaws to amend Land Use Bylaw No. 1309, 1999, and with regard to a proposed Development Variance Permits.
CENTRAL SAANICH LAND USE BYLAW AMENDMENT BYLAW NO. 1812, 2013 (7226 WEST SAANICH ROAD)
Bylaw No. 1812, 2013 - Subject Property
In general terms, the purpose of the proposed Bylaw is to amend Appendix “A” of the Central Saanich Land Use Bylaw No. 1309, 1999 to rezone the area of land legally described as Lot 10, Section 10, Range 1 West, South Saanich District, Plan 12715 (7226 West Saanich Road), as shown shaded on the map, from Service Station Commercial (C-4) to Core Commercial (C-1). The intent of the proposed bylaw amendment is to permit the re-development of the building and site for a medical office.
memberships, its newsletter, a street banners program and Sidney guide. “Membership is solid,” he said. “We have stable numbers.” Buckley admitted the market was the SBA’s largest source of revenue and losing it meant they’ve had to cut back on expenses. “Council didn’t look at the SBA’s books,” he said, “and took someone else’s word on our finances and then took
the market away from us. If they were trying to eliminate us, that would be a good way of doing it.” Buckley said the SBA is still open, but facing an uncertain future. Sidney councillors moved ahead with plans to recoup the debt. “I’m not comfortable about forgiving debts while a group is still running,” Price said. Coun. Marilyn Loveless agreed, saying
she would like to see those costs — already incurred by the taxpayer when the Town provided services at the 2012 street market

A Development Variance Permit has also been requested in respect to 7226 West Saanich Road to vary the regulations in section 42 (12) of Land Use Bylaw No. 1309, 1999 to allow off-street parking within 2.5m of a lot line.
Chris Fudge is looking for any last-minute nominations for the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce’s annual excel-
lence awards gala next month. The chamber is extending the deadline for its seventh annual Island Savings Crystal Awards to Thursday, Sept. 5 (tomorrow) — giving people an extra

CENTRAL SAANICH OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN BYLAW AMENDMENT BYLAW 1792, 2012 (Tourist Commercial – South of Keating Cross Road and East of West Saanich Road) In general terms, the purpose of the proposed Bylaw is to: a. amend the Central Saanich Official Community Plan Schedule ‘A’ Land Use Plan by changing the land use designation of the Easterly 196.4 Feet of Lot 3, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 1423 (1515 Keating Cross Road), and those portions of both Lot B, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 13537 (1509 Keating Cross Road) and Lot 2, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 1423, shown shaded on the map, from Tourist Commercial to Multi-Family Residential; and, b. amend the Central Saanich Official Community Plan Schedule ‘D’ Development Permit Areas by designating the properties legally described the Easterly 196.4 Feet of Lot 3, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 1423 (1515 Keating Cross Road), and those portions of both Lot B, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 13537 (1509 Keating Cross Road) and Lot 2, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 1423 as a Development Permit Area for Multi-Family Residential. 2. CENTRAL SAANICH LAND USE BYLAW AMENDMENT BYLAW NO. 1793, 2012 (Artisan Properties – 4 Lots at Keating Cross Road and West Saanich Road) In general terms, the purpose of the proposed Bylaw is to: a. amend the text in the Central Saanich Land Use Bylaw No. 1309, 1999 in Subsection 12 of Section 38 of Part 5 by adding “Restaurant” in appropriate alphabetical order to the list of permitted uses for the Tourist Commercial (C-5) zone; b. amend Schedule 1 (Zoning Map) in the Central Saanich Land Use Bylaw No. 1309, 1999 by changing the zoning designation of the Easterly 196.4 Feet of Lot 3, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 1423 (1515 Keating Cross Road), and those portions of both Lot B, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 13537 (1509 Keating Cross Road) and Lot 2, Section 14, Range 1 East, SSD, Plan 1423, as shown shaded on the map from Tourist Commercial (C-5) to Residential Attached (RM-3). 3. CENTRAL SAANICH OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN BYLAW AMENDMENT BYLAW 1796, 2012 (Tourist Commercial – South of Keating Cross Road and East of West Saanich Road) In general terms, the purpose of the proposed Bylaw is to amend the text in Central Saanich Official Community Plan Bylaw 1600, 2008 by adding the following at the end of Section 4.2: “Policy 11 A cluster of commercial properties exists at the crossroads of Keating Cross Road and West Saanich Road, outside the Urban Settlement Area. The initial commercial designation and development of these properties dates back to the 1950’s, prior to the introduction of an Urban Settlement Area within municipal bylaws or the adoption of the first Regional Growth Strategy. The historical provision of urban services to this area is an anomaly to the general pattern of urban servicing otherwise supported by this OCP. Recognizing the existing level of urban services already provided to these lands, despite Section 4.2 Policy 3, a more intensive form of residential development may be approved in conjunction with tourist-oriented uses on adjacent parcels designated Tourist Commercial lying south of Keating Cross Road and east of West Saanich Road.”
