Oak Bay mayor becomes peace advocate Mayors for Peace earns commitment from Oak Bay Danielle Pope News staff

Nils Jensen will add his name to the long list of mayors who advocate for peace, thanks to a motion passed at the Oak Bay Council meeting on Monday, Sept. 9. Mayors for Peace, an organization that strives to raise international public awareness for the need to abolish nuclear weapons, was created in 1982 in an effort to recognize the world-wide trauma of the bombing of Hiroshima. While the event that spurred the group happened in 1945, a Nils Jensen motion for Oak Bay’s mayor to sign into official membership with the organization was passed Monday night, in part to recognize the impending need for peace. “The motion seemed apropos, given the state of geo-political affairs that we are seeing in the Middle East,” said Jensen. “Yes, this is a little outside Oak Bay’s normal jurisdiction, but this is a sentiment that affects us all, and we could all commit, as a council, to the goal of peace.” There is no anticipated fee for Jensen to join the group, and he notes that he is not expected to attend any international conferences. To learn more about the organization, visit mayorsforpeace.org. news@mondaymag.com

The idea was the brainchild of Oak Bay High School alumnus, Matt Tanner of Merry Maids of Victoria and his brother, Barbarians assistant coach, Dylan Tanner, as a way to give back to the community and to help raise money for the team’s 2014 Rugby tour to South America. In return for its service, the team earned a $2,000 donation from Merry Maids of Victoria that will help pay for their trip to Argentina next spring. Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Breathing new life into ocean research Google executive’s foundation funds UVic project Edward Hill News staff

Not long after Eric Schmidt spent $60 million outfitting a ship with the latest high-tech gear for marine science, Ocean Networks Canada fell onto his radar. Perhaps the executive chairman of Google googled the University of Victoria’s research agency. Two years later, an 18-person scientific team from ONC has set sail from Ogden Point on the R/V Falkor to study low oxygen zones in the Saanich Inlet and the Salish Sea. The ship time is funded entirely by Schmidt’s foundation, the Schmidt Ocean Institute. “This is a unique opportunity. Most research vessels are linked with universities or governments,” said Richard Dewey, assistant director, science with Ocean Networks Canada. “This foundation has an open mandate ... this ship gives us free run to direct the science and do what we want to do.” This month, ONC scientists have been exploring the ecosystems of naturally occurring low oxygen zones in the Saanich Inlet as part of a broader study to understand how low-oxygen water flows from the deep Pacific Ocean into the seas surrounding southern Vancouver Island. Among other tools, they are employing ROPOS, a high-tech remotely operated vehicle, a kind of underwater robot, created by Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility based in North Saanich. Research teams from UVic and other Canadian universities will use multiple high-resolution video cameras on the boxy yellow machine to take a fine-grain look at how life survives in the inlet.

Technician Peter Milne prepares the ROPOS remotely operated vehicle aboard the R/V Falkor at Ogden Point on Sept. 5. UVic’s Ocean Networks Canada is conducting a month of offshore scientific research using the Falkor, a research ship funded by the Schmidt Ocean Institute, a non-profit created by Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Google, and his wife Wendy. code on the side of a lifeboat box “(We) will do two dives with ROPOS to explore cliff walls some that links to the Schmidt Ocean Institute website. 200 metres in depth, looking at Jackson Chu, a UVic PhD stuorganisms in low oxygen waters,” dent in marine said Kim Juniper, biology and a vetscience director “This foundation eran of offshore of ONC. “We want to capture the biohas an open mandate research, plans to study fish spediversity between ... this ship gives us cies that thrive in high-oxygen and low-oxygen ocean low-oxygen zones.” free run to direct the Unlike everyThe Falkor is an science and do what water. thing else on the 83-metre former ship, catching fish German fishing we want to do.” remains low-tech boat refitted with - Richard Dewey – he plans to use a modern laborasmall net. tories, advanced “This is pretty awesome.

I’ve seen,” Chu said. “It’s very technically advanced with all its integrated systems.” Two years ago, Schmidt Ocean Institute approached ONC and suggested it submit a research proposal. “They were looking for something to do with this vessel,” Juniper said. “I’m told Eric Schmidt went online and said ‘These people look interesting. Go see them.’” Victor Zykov, director of research for Schmidt Ocean Institute, said ONC caught the institute’s attention due to its Neptune and Venus underwater observatories. Neptune’s 800-kilometre loop

of instruments monitors the Pacific Ocean off southern Vancouver Island, and Venus has 40-km of cable in the Strait of Georgia. Both feed near-real time oceanographic data through the Internet, free and open to anyone. The information is used to study everything from whales to tectonic plates. “(Neptune and Venus) were very attractive to us for the example of effectively using technology, and engaging the global community of why the oceans are so important,” Zykov said. Schmidt Ocean Institute pays the cost of operating the ship, about $60,000 per day using the ROPOS system, and $40,000 per day for the mapping surveys. The basis of ONC’s project is to understand how water low in oxygen and high in carbon dioxide (i.e. acidic water) migrates from the deep Pacific Ocean to the continental shelf, into the Strait of Juan de Fuca and beyond, a phenomenon which can stress and kill fish and shellfish. ONC scientists spent part of August surveying properties of water layers across the Neptune network to construct a complete picture of how sub-surface currents flow in and around Vancouver Island. “Our main goal was to find the pathways of the low-oxygen water. Our suspected path was a dud. The main path is through Barkley Canyon, where fortunately we have Neptune,” Juniper said. “Turns out we’ve got the network in just the right place.” Juniper hopes this project will allow ONC to create tools to forecast the movement and inflow of low-oxygen water around Vancouver Island. The work will also add to the growing body of research on ocean acidification and the growth of ocean “dead zones.” Learn more at oceannetworks.ca/cruise13. editor@saanichnews.com

Court is back in session United Way campaign kicks off with $6M goal The Oak Bay tennis bubble is back in operation for tennis players. On Monday, Sept. 16, the popular recreation spot reopened after a new, high-reflective, insulated inner lining was installed. “The tradition of providing top quality tennis programs since its inception in 1975 continues,” said Ed Bakker, tennis co-ordinator for Recreation Oak Bay. “The replacement of the bubble is perfect timing for the upcoming indoor season.”   The Oak Bay four court bubble – beside the neighbouring three court bubble – helps support a growing community of tennis players that now stands at 4,500 to 5,000 players regionwide. Through Recreation

Oak Bay, the two bubbles and 14 outdoor courts help service the diverse needs of tennis players from age five and up to the 70-plus demographic. “Programs are in place for children, teens and adults looking for beginner to advanced instructional programs, social programs or a little of both,” said Bakker. “High intense drill sessions or just one-on-one privates lessons are also available.” School tennis programs can also be accessed through Recreation Oak Bay. Call 250-595-7946 to reserve your time on the tennis court. editor@oakbaynews.com

agency that funneled roughly $4 million into partner service providers last year. “The United Way has got the history of being the social safety net for our community,” he said. “I’m a big believer in us all supporting and helping our community. You have to grow where you live.” At a pancake breakfast yesterday at Ogden Point, Schneider helped unveil this year’s campaign slogan, “Are You an Agent of Change?” and announced the 2013 fundraising goal is $6 million, about what was raised last year. With the need for public services and requests for funding always outstripping the money available, United Way constantly faces the challenge of determining where best to direct donations, Schneider said. “I think the important thing that we want to look at is, is your money that you’ve contributed making an impact? That’s one thing that we in United Way are uber-focused on, is aligning the money with the impact.” United Way annually re-evaluates the community service providers it funds and the work they do, to meet the challenge of ensuring the best strategic use of donor money. This year 66 organizations in the Capital Region will receive help. “The beauty of Victoria isn’t our ocean and the beautiful area, it’s our people and the caring and the giving,” Schneider said. “We all know there are challenges out there, but time and time again the community rises to that.” Public individual or corporate donations can be made now. Greater Victoria workplace campaigns will ramp up soon, encouraging employees to give through payroll deductions.

OUR VIEW

Festival furor part of the deal Rifflandia, the increasingly popular music festival that took over Royal Athletic Park and other outdoor and indoor venues last weekend, was heard far and wide by residents of Victoria, Saanich and even Oak Bay. While the event attracted thousands of happy concertgoers, not everyone enjoyed the tunes pumping from the speakers at RAP and behind Phillips Brewery on Government Street. Police departments and the city bylaw officials fielded dozens of calls about noise levels, from neighbouring residents and even those who live well away from the outdoor venues. Based solely on that record, some might jump to the conclusion that the festival has overstayed its welcome in Victoria. But one has to look at the other side of the equation before passing judgment. Not only does the festival provide economic benefits to the city and region, the efforts organizers make to create an environment that is respectful, flexible and family friendly is commendable. City staffers confirmed this week that the festival operated within the limits from a decibel perspective, outside of a handful of times when they were told to turn down the volume, which they did promptly. Residents of Victoria have seen festivals come and go, for various reasons. Here we have a festival lauded as a well-run, family friendly event – not without its bumps and challenges – that has the potential to further enhance the city’s image as a musical haven for established and up-and-coming performers. Festival producers Atomique Productions, familiar with the city’s tendency to listen closely to residents’ complaints, are well aware that any missteps could cost them an opportunity to hold future concerts at this venue, which has proven to be its most popular based on numbers. It’s in their best interest to play by the rules, and so far they have. If we want to continue attracting important cultural events such as this, we need to grin and bear it for a few days, tough as that can sometimes be. What do you think?

In August, I reported that as many as 20 of B.C. Hydro’s existing private power purchase contracts will be cancelled or deferred. This was also seized upon to portray private power as the root of all evil, both financially and environmentally. In fact the attrition rate on these projects has always been about one out of three. This is what happens when the risks of expanding the provincial electrical grid are shared with private investors. These run-of-river and wind projects were promoted to maximize clean energy sources, as well as to spread the grid to remote areas. This was Gordon Campbell’s climate change strategy. Then came the gas boom. Clark seized upon liquefied natural gas exports as the key to future prosperity, and the government soon declared burning gas “clean” as long as it facilitates LNG production. Bennett now acknowledges that gas-fired power plants are an option for the future. They are cheaper than hydro, small or large. Bennett’s two tasks are to supply industry with cheap power and get consumer rates under control. It looks as if the gas is being turned up, and Site C is moving to the back burner.

This council, for the most part, is ignoring the residents of the area and pursuing what it thinks is best. Coun. Cairine Green’s change of vote  from no to yes after listening  to young people at her son’s wedding express a desire to “afford” to live in Oak Bay makes a mockery of the process. Ian Baird Oak Bay ✍✍✍✍ In response to Coun. Cairine Green’s comment as to why she changed her vote regarding the Clive project, I can only add that I am certain there are many young people who would want to live in Oak Bay. There are many people who would love to live in Victoria. I am not a young person and I would love to live in the Uplands but can’t. Is that any reason to agree to a development project which obviously bothers many people? George Barrows Oak Bay ✍✍✍✍ The Oak Bay News has asked readers what they think about the Clive development proposal. Having attended all council meetings and some developer meetings on the subject and, being very experienced with working with many municipal councils, here’s what I think: Firstly, although your Sept. 13, article (Residents ruffled over Clive proposal) provides some insight and viewpoints expressed by councillors opposed to the proposal – it does not tell the whole story. There are developments that are appropriate and there are those that are inappropriate. This development falls into the inappropriate category by definition. This has been pointed out now several times in staff reports that have called for modifications. The developer has said this is not possible given the profit margins (economics) and therefore has made little change from the outset.

The requested density and variances do not comply with Oak Bay zoning and parking bylaws or the Official Community Plan. Council seems not to understand their role in approving variances. Bylaws are set based on what the community wants by way of density, liveability and fairness to neighbours. Therefore council must use its discretion to approve minor adjustments, if necessary, not approve major discrepancies and throw out all the legislation and guidelines. These facts have been pointed out by council members opposed to the development in its present form. Council has asked the local community to “work it out” with the developer. Given the impasse, this in effect means council wants the community to make all the concessions and accept the many resulting problems the overbuilding will cause. These problems are not speculative but have been clearly explained to them by the residents. Additionally, the amount of blasting has not been disclosed and there are many buildings in close proximity. Unfortunately, these days, council makes decisions that put more and more building on less and less land or, allow certain kinds of development in inappropriate locations. This only leads to attempts to deal with the resultant impacts after the fact and in many cases the problems are insoluble. Anthony Mears Oak Bay ✍✍✍✍ Congratulations to Oak Bay council on moving this thoughtful and well planned project to Oak Bay’s advisory design panel for consultation. Tom and Jill Croft Oak Bay ✍✍✍✍ The letter in Wednesday’s Oak Bay News (It’s time to stop the ‘uglification’ of Oak Bay village) demonizing development in Oak Bay is about one individual’s personal taste and is not supported by facts. The proposed Clive building is three

storeys not four. It features more glass and wood than the old building and is clearly not “wall-to-wall concrete.” The writer needs to provide facts on wildlife and vegetation destruction, increased pollution etc. Increased density should actually decrease pollution; people walking to amenities means less road traffic. The building sits on solid rock, not in a forest. Wildlife is not evident on or near this property.   If the letter-writer had his way there would be no Ottavio’s or Winchester Gallery, there would be no Penny Farthing, there would be no Athlone court; there wouldn’t be a seniors’  care home at Elgin Road and Oak Bay Ave. These developments, all of them welcome in my mind, have evolved over the 30 years I have been living in the neighbourhood.  I look forward to a new Clive building, a place where my elderly parents could rent an apartment and walk to everything they need. A building I, too, will likely look forward to living in when the burden of home ownership and driving become too much. Oak Bay suffers a shortage of modern, accessible rental units for those of us who wish sell our homes and vehicles and remain in the community. The Clive proposal is the first proposal in decades to address this shortage.  Ed Lien Oak Bay

Lt.-Gov. hears truth on First Nations schools The national Truth and Reconciliation Commission stopped in to Government House last week to induct Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon as an honorary witness. Through five years of hearings, the commission is preparing a comprehensive historical record on the policies and operations of Indian residential schools and their impact on First Nations people. It will produce a report that will include recommendations to the federal government. At last Thursday’s event, Guichon met with commissioners and heard from former B.C. residential school students about their experiences. The Truth and Reconciliation B.C. national event is being held Sept. 18 to 21 on the grounds of the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver. dpalmer@vicnews. com

Despite a flurry of noise complaints over the weekend, City of Victoria officials say a four-day music festival rocked well within its sound limits. Rifflandia wrapped up Sunday evening in Royal Athletic Park, while night stages at Phillips Brewery on Government Street, and Market Square, were open Thursday through Saturday. “We’re figuring it’s upwards of 75 to 80 (noise) complaints … within our own department and through Victoria Police Department,” said Kate Friars, city director of parks, recreation and culture. “It’s not a normal weekend for us, but we feel the operators operated within their decibel (limit).” Saanich police were “inundated” with noise complaints over the weekend from both Saanich and Oak Bay residents, said Sgt. Steve Eassie. Callers were referred to Victoria’s 24-hour bylaw enforcement line. “One lady even said her win-

a short period of time. Those were brought to the attention of the organizer and they brought it down right away,” she said. Friars said Atomique Productions, which produces Rifflandia, are “a great group of people to work with” and are always respectful of noise concerns. Bowen Osoko, VicPD spokesman, said officers were busy both at Rifflandia and several outdoor events in Esquimalt, but there were no major incidents to report. “We had a large presence (at Rifflandia),” Osoko said. “We went early and often and as a result, there were no problems that escalated.” VicPD didn’t keep track of liquor pour-outs or minor incidents over the weekend, he said. Parks officials will now turn to restoring the grass at Royal Athletic Park, which was soaked by heavy rains two weeks ago and again on Sunday. “We’ve had to cancel a couple of football games for this coming weekend,” Friars said. “Certainly we’re looking to try and get the field back up and running, I’d say within a few weeks.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

Metchosin artist takes a bow for business Charla Huber News staff

Each day Charmaine Welch struggles with what bow tie to wear, often resorting to her favourite – Cat in the Hat. Welch has been making bow ties for two-and -half years, ever since she stumbled upon a bow tie pattern, gathered up some scraps and went to work. “Anyone who sews knows that fabric stashes just happen,” Welch says. While it was new and a novelty, Welch never expected bow ties would take over her life. “Now I am just addicted to them,” says Welch, who lives in Metchosin. Before she made her first bow tie, she had a little store on the craft website Etsy. She was selling apple cozies and baby booties and figured she’d throw her bow tie online too. Initially, she sold one here and there and she was having fun making them. Then, one day she made a bow tie using fabric with Superman on it and put a photo on her virtual shop. “That’s the one that sold the ship for me,” she says with excitement. “Overnight, I sold

eight and then in three days I sold 17.” Drawn to the flashy pattern, bloggers found her bow tie and shared the image on their blogs – more than 65 times on Tumblr.com alone. With the ball rolling, Welch is now busy making bow ties for orders she’s received from 25 countries. In June, she quit her job at Save-on-Foods to work on her business, Sew Fairy Cute, full time. “I’ve always wanted to work for myself and now with great spirit, I can run with this,” she says. She has learned

many things through the business and found her most popular bow ties are ones with superheroes on them. She’s even filled large orders of superhero bow ties for superherothemed weddings. “Most (superherothemed) weddings have Spider-Man, Batman and Captain America,” she says. Her clients from the U.S. have more superhero weddings than anywhere else. Running the business has taught her more than just sewing; she has had to learn to be computer savvy and how to display and market her product.

“I am very creative. There is a difference between being creative and artistic,” says Welch. She makes bow ties for both children and adults, but adult sizes sell much faster. Her biggest sellers are clip-ons, but she also makes pre-tied with an adjustable strap and freestyle bows as well. “I really want to get everyone in Canada wearing bow ties,” Welch says.

he fourth annual Latin American and Spanish Film Week hand picks some of the biggest Latin films from around the world and screens them at the University of Victoria’s Cinecenta until Sept. 22. But don’t call it a festival, says organizer Prof. Dan Russek of UVic’s Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies. “Because our event is such a manageable size, usually about five to seven films, it allows us to choose from some of the very best movies,” he said. Spanish Film Week is here to stay as Russek and UVic compatriots formed the non-profit Hispanic Film Society of Victoria to help ensure it’s future. “We wanted to create this to go beyond the classroom and academia and into the community, and films are a great medium for that,” Russek said. “We’re not just targeting students, everyone is welcome, and all films are shown with English subtitles.” Anchoring this year’s roster is Blancanieves, a black and white, silent movie adaptation of Snow White that won 10 Goya Awards (the Spanish film awards) including Best Film in 2012. Blancanieves will wrap up Film Week on Sunday with 7 and 9 p.m. showings.

It should have been in the same conversation as The Artist, which won the Oscar’s best picture award, but didn’t come out until later. The re-imagination is set in Southern Spain in the ‘20s and is a personal drama about a young women, Carmen, who fights different odds with quirky elements, including a group of dwarf bullfighters. “Snow White began filming before The Artist but finished afterwards, he feels bad that Snow White arrived later. It shows that you can do a great movie, black and white, and silent. The Artist went on to prominence so it’s a shame, Snow White could have earned more discussion as they are contemporaries,” Russek said. Tonight’s showing is Spanish Film Week’s first animated feature, Chico y Rita. The animation captures the flavour and lighting of Havana and New York City, as the protagonists move between the two. “It has great visuals and the jazz music, and the movie really, is an homage to Bebo Valdes, the piano player who was involved in making the movie,” Russek said. Chico y Rita, which dates back to 2010, won multiple Goyas and an Oscar nomination for best animated film. View the full lineup at hispfilmvic.ca, or visit cinecenta.com for more.

Vision Matters Dr. Neil Paterson

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Glass or plastic lenses Once you have your prescription for eyeglass lenses there are a number of decisions you must make. Perhaps one of the most important is whether to have your corrective lenses made out of glass or plastic. Today, in Canada, most spectacle lenses are made of plastic. Plastic lenses have improved so much over the last 20 years, that plastic has become the lens material of choice. If glass lenses are chosen it is imperative to get shatter resistant lenses. There is no such thing as shatter-proof glass. So, for occupations that require safety eyewear, glass is not acceptable. Plastic lenses can absorb much more punishment. Some plastic materials are extremely safe and therefore afford good protection in certain high risk occupations. Both glass and plastic can be made in “thin” or high index materials which are more practical for strong prescriptions. Because plastic is softer than glass, there is a misconception that plastic lenses will scratch easily. This does not have to be the case provided proper care is taken. Elaborate cleaning measures are not necessary, just simple common sense precautions. Plastic lenses will not become scratched from normal use; they get scratched when exposed to abrasives. Today’s scratch coatings make plastic lens surfaces very durable. Ask your Optometrist about the different types of lens materials available for your prescription.

For end-of-the-week regulars at the Pandora Avenue McDonald’s, Sharon Sailor provides consistency. Whether it’s greeting customers stopping in for a morning coffee, wiping down tables or keeping an eye on children horsing around in the restaurant’s play place, the tall, smiling lady in black makes people feel welcome. Sailor has plenty of experience at this sometimes forgotten craft. For the past three-plus decades, she has been a fixture at this fast food outlet. Last week, restaurant owners Bobi and Glen Bishop honoured her with a cake and a gift of a wristwatch to mark her 35th anniversary with McDonald’s – all at the same location. “She really cares about people in the restaurant,” Bobi said, “and she brings a lot of high energy to the store.” Sailor, 55, started the year after she graduated from St. Margaret’s school and has missed very few days of work since 1978. Glen Bishop, who along with his wife also owns McDonald’s locations at Douglas and View, Hillside Avenue and Hillside Mall, values that stability. “I think it’s great that the customers get to see her on a regular basis,” he said. Several people who shared in the cake offered congratulations or noted they always see her

Asked what she likes most about her job – she works Thursdays and Fridays – Sailor said, “It’s fun. I like coming to work and being happy.” She enjoys visiting with customers, but drew a blank on memorable people over the years. She did, however, bring up the only period when she didn’t come to work on Pandora Avenue. “I remember the fire in 1994,”

she said. The blaze destroyed the original building and Sailor found herself transferred to the McDonald’s at Douglas and View streets for six months. “The day it reopened was the same day as the opening of the Commonwealth Games.” Sailor’s mother, Joyce, who lives with and cares for her daughter in Saanich, was also on hand for the presentation. “She’s always enjoyed it and never complains,” Joyce said,

Vic runner changing strides

Catrin Jones, a contender to win next month’s Victoria Marathon, finished sixth overall in the 10-kilometre race at the World Francophone Games in Nice. It’s the latest success for the long distance runner who won Squamish’s Arc’Teryx 50K ultra last month.

Crashing ahead Canuck kids win silver, bronze at U23 Worlds Travis Paterson News staff

Ellen Pennock is making a name for herself as one to watch on the international triathlon scene. At just 20-years-old, Pennock won silver at the under-23 World Triathlon Grand Final in London, England on Thursday. It’s part of a massive day for the Canadian women with three in the top-five as Amelie Kretz won bronze and Joanna Brown was fifth. The trio raced most of the bike and run together, an impressive feat considering Pennock’s effort to recover after she crashed her

bike on the first corner. “I crashed twice at my first junior worlds so I thought, ‘Here we go again,’” Pennock said. “But I got back on and got with the second pack so the ride was good. We worked awesome on the bike and did a lot of work for the pack. (Brown and Kretz) are so strong, they were pulling their fair share.” The three Canadians ran with a group of six, including gold medal winner Charlotte McShane, who pulled out the win by 1.5 seconds over Pennock and Kretz. “I felt awesome in the run, on the last corner I tried to pull a ‘Paula Findlay’ and run it in but I didn’t have the finish,” Pennock said. Last year Pennock finished 13th at the World U23 final. It follows a strong Canadian history as Kirsten Sweetland, a training

partner of Pennock’s, won silver at the same race in 2010. “This is Amelie’s first U23 (world championship) and she came third with (Brown) right there, no other country had three in the top 10,” Pennock said. The group spent the summer training in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain, under the watch of Triathlon Canada, thanks to Own the Podium’s support. Pennock is now due back for some “mad catching up” in the third year of her Earth and Ocean Sciences major at UVic. “There’s nothing quite like walking off the plane and smelling (Victoria’s) fresh, clean salty air. That, and the bakery section at Thrifty’s.” Victoria’s Matt Sharpe finished 24th in the men’s under-23 Grand Final on Thursday.

Arnold Lim/ITU

Victoria based triathlete Ellen Pennock, a former UVic Vikes athlete who moved here from Calgary, spent the summer training in Spain and has a bright future in Canada’s triathlon program.

An increase in numbers has bumped the Belmont Bulldogs into the AAA tier, the highest competitive level of play in the B.C. High School Football league. And the team is ready, says coach Kevin Harrington. The Bulldogs are coming off three wins in the preseason and take on the West Vancouver Highlanders at 4:30 p.m. on Friday (Sept. 18) at Gaudy Turf, the upper field of Langford’s City Centre Park. “It’s our first competition at the AAA level and we’re going in with a positive outlook,” Harrington said. They’re also going in with a smoking hot running game that scored six touchdowns in the Bulldogs’ 48-35 win over the Ballenas Whalers on Saturday, a strong AA team out of Qualicum/Parksville. “We know Ballenas will be good at their level so we feel confident. We powered the ball on the ground against them for 339 yards,” Harrington said. Leading the charge are Grade 12 running backs Jordan Worth, who racked up 209 yards rushed and four TDs against Ballenas, and Sam Varao, who rushed for 130 yards and two TDs. The Bulldogs won two other preseason matches, trouncing the AA Pitt Meadows Mauraders 35-6 and beating Central Linn 35-26 during a trip to Oregon.

The Chiefs embraced it, though they don’t have them back home. “A lot of controversy came out over the drums because some of our fans didn’t like them but I’m glad they didn’t ban it, it’s great atmosphere,” Heyes said. “It’s tough playing in a barn like this but when you’ve got the support we have, all the drums and our native brothers and sisters that came to support us, it’s not home but it feels like home,” said the Chiefs’ Cody Jamieson, named the Mike Kelly Memorial Trophy award winner as the series MVP.

It ended with the Chiefs’ 8-5 win in Game 6 on Friday. “There’s a lot of would-a-could-ashould-a,” Shamrocks coach Bob Heyes said on Monday. “We were 10 minutes from Game 7, where all of a sudden it’s a winner-take-all game. The atmosphere was electric and would have been over the top, I think we would definitely would have come out the winners.” The drumming, led by a crew of First Nations lacrosse fans from the Island, was the lace that tied the series together.

Police suspect same man could be responsible Kyle Slavin

The 7-Eleven store at Tillicum and Carey roads was robbed for a fourth time in recent months on Saturday morning. Saanich police suspect the same man could be responsible for at least three, if not all four, of the robberies. A clerk called police Saturday at 5:45 a.m. to report he had been robbed by a man brandishing a tire iron. The suspect made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. “Armed robberies are few and far between ... in this day and age. The risks outweigh the benefits,” Sgt. Steve Eassie said. “Most convenience stores have been educated as to how to prevent the loss of large sums of money. What was once a fairly good return for someone committing armed robbery, it is no longer. “So having multiple incidents occurring within a relatively short time period like this is extremely rare.” The same convenience store was robbed on June 25, July 15 and Sept. 10 in a similar fashion: a man entered the store in the early morning hours when the clerk was alone, wielding a weapon and demanding cash. A screwdriver was the weapon of choice in June, and a switchblade knife was produced in the other two robberies. The suspect, a white man approximately 5-foot10, was wearing a brown hoodie, and his face was masked with a bandana and sunglasses in the robbery on Saturday. “It’s not known why it’s simply this location. It’s not know why it’s occurred at the same time. It could be that the person that is responsible is comfortable with the neighbourhood, it could be that they have knowledge of the timing when staff are on,” Eassie said, noting that investigators are working to determine conclusively why this location is being targeted repeatedly. Eassie said investigators have provided the 7-Eleven owners with information on how to better prevent similar incidents, including ensuring employees are never working alone, and possibility of locking the front doors overnight. No one has been injured in any of robberies. Although rare, repeated targeted robberies aren’t unheard of in Victoria. A career criminal robbed a CIBC bank in Colwood three times in a span of three months in 2011. At his sentencing hearing, Lorne Rodway told the court that particular branch was an easy mark due to its setup and surrounding roadways. On Saturday, patrol officers and a police canine unit were called in but were unable to locate a suspect. Investigators canvassed for witnesses throughout the day, and forensics investigators are reviewing surveillance footage from the store. Saanich police are appealing for public help to solve these robberies. Anyone in the Carey and Tillicum area and who saw any suspicious persons between 5:30 and 6 a.m. on Saturday morning can contact the Saanich police at 250475-4321. kslavin@saanichnews.com
