Healing and redemption in the garden Revolving door of justice system for mentally ill, drug addicted ends at a Blenkinsop Road plot Edward Hill News staff

At this garden, the guy picking beans might be working across from his former probation officer and the judge that sentenced him to jail. Everyone is equal when their hands are in the soil at Seven Oaks community garden Chris Lepage, 31, picks chard with quiet concentration, separating out the best leaves for sale. Many of his co-workers have been “sentenced” to Seven Oaks as court-ordered community service. Lepage volunteers his time to build work experience. “I do everything except prune tomatoes,” he said. “That’s one job that requires more patience than I have. I do a lot of the hard work that needs to be done. A lot of the heavy lifting.” Lepage lives at Cool Aid’s Swift House for people who have struggled with homelessness. Garden work gives him a bit of extra money, fresh vegetables and a new perspective – there is an entire world outside Victoria’s downtown core. “You can’t be mad when you go home from here. I’m always in a good mood out here, being outside. It’s not just the work, it’s the surroundings,” he said, amid farm fields and oak trees in Saanich’s Blenkinsop Valley. The 7,600 square foot garden exploding with vegetables is helping break the cycle of petty crime, arrests, court hearings and

Gardening volunteer Chris Lepage hunts out ripe chard at the Seven Oaks community garden on Blenkinsop Road in Saanich. The Victoria Integrated Court often sends offenders with mental health and addiction issues to the garden to complete community service, to learn skills and as therapy. jail for people living with mental illness and drug addictions. Fresh air and nature beats lockup at Wilkinson Road any day of the week. Kevin, 44, spends the rainy morning washing carrots, beans and chard in preparation for packaging. He’s found his green thumb here since trading habitual drug use for organic gardening. “This gets me out of the inner city core. It’s fulfilling. I like doing something with my hands and have a product come out of it. Especially strawberries,” he said, smiling. “I got into the drug scene and it helps keep me out of the drug scene.” The community garden as a therapy tool is in its first full year of food production at Seven Oaks, a mental health facility run by the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Clients, usually about 10 per session, are

bused in from downtown, many of them completing community service handed down through the Victoria Integrated Court. At the garden, they’re under the watch of staff from the Assertive Community Treatment and Victoria Integrated Community Outreach Team (ACT-VICOT), teams of social workers, health professionals, police and probation officers. The Victoria Integrated Court and the ACT-VICOT teams work hand in glove to focus on repeat offenders who are usually drug-addicted, mentally ill and homeless or living in shelters. Provincial court Judge Ernie Quantz and Sharon Bristow, retired probation officer, haul wheelbarrows of soil, pick veggies and prune leaves alongside clients completing community service. Both were instrumental in establishing the Victoria Integrated

Court after witnessing the lineup of mentally ill people rotating through the justice system. They also realized that part of the solution was removing offenders from the downtown core and into constructive, therapeutic activities, like a garden. Quantz and garden co-ordinator David Stott approached Seven Oaks, which had an existing plot, and found support through the John Howard Society and the Blenkinsop Valley Community Association, to back its significant expansion. Two years later the garden produces enough veggies each week to sell to staff at Seven Oaks and the Ministry of Justice in the Sussex Building downtown. PlEASE SEE: Therapy garden, Page A6

Capturing Saanich’s untold stories Archive’s oral history project well into third decade Kyle Slavin News staff

It's difficult to imagine what life in Saanich was like 100 years ago. While the municipal archives has century-old legal documentation around property ownership and a great trove of aging photographs, the municipality has spent the better part of 36 years capturing the undocumented stories from the people that helped build the municipality. The Saanich Oral History Project, which began in the late 1970s, has seen archivists sit down and record interviews with Saanich pioneers, longtime residents, municipal employees and politicians about their experiences in the municipality. “Archival material is great and it gives us so much, however it doesn't always give you these personal tidbits of knowledge that wouldn't otherwise be anywhere except for someone's personal memories,” said archives specialist Sonia Nicholson. On July 5, 1977, Saanich archivist Louise Ditmars sat down with former Mayor Les Passmore. He served as mayor (or reeve, as the position was called in 1941) for one year, but spent a total of 37 years on council. “(Saanich has) changed to a very a great degree because in

those days the roads were just dirt roads, the ditches were all open, we had no sewers, no sewers anywhere in Saanich, all septic tanks. And, well, it was pretty rural, as was all Saanich at that time,” Passmore said in his interview at age 78 of his memories of the 1930s. His oral history touches on his memories of the politics of bringing a sewer system into Saanich, abolishing a municipal ward system and the transition from wooden to concrete sidewalks. “It helps paint a more complete pictures of Saanich. It adds to our knowledge base and helps fill in those details about our history,” Nicholson said. Archivists have recorded some 240 interviews over the years, and are always looking for more Saanich residents to offer their memories of change. “Saanich recognized that a lot of the municipality's early history wasn't written down, but was remembered by the people who had lived it – many of whom were getting on in years,” said archivist Caroline Duncan. “As a result, an oral history program was started … to record these memories for the future.” Originally, interviews were recorded on cassettes and then transcribed. Now Nicholson and fellow archivists record interviews digitally and upload them to Saanich's oral history computer at the archives, inside the Centennial library branch. “I love the personal memories: the holidays, the family tradi-

The social history is what i'm interested in,” Nicholson said. These experiences, only shared through the Oral History Project, are all aspects of Saanich life that wouldn't have been otherwise documented. The archives also periodically receives donations that help add to the Oral History Project, such

as the recent acquisition of radio interviews with former Saanich police chief Burt Pearson from the mid-1960s. While Nicholson says there are no long-term plans for the all the interviews, Saanichites can come to the archives and listen to (or read transcripts) from interviews conducted over the last 36 years. Interview subjects range from family history and family tradi-

tions, to work or neighbourhood history. Nicholson hopes to find more Saanich residents who are willing to share their memories – historical or anecdotal – of living in the municipality over the years. Anyone interested in participating in the Saanich Oral History Project can contact Nicholson at sonia.nicholson@saanich.ca. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Saanich 7-Eleven robbed for fourth time Kyle Slavin News staff

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-foot-10, 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 loca-

tion. It’s not known 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. No one has been injured in any of the 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. Laurie Smith, communications manager for 7-Eleven Canada, says repeat incidents like these are rare for their company,

although she wouldn’t comment specifically on the targeted store. “All 7-Eleven store employees are trained to deal in robbery avoidance to ensure employees and guests are safe,” Smith said. “Employees have personal safety devices and there are numerous tactics instore such as bright lighting, areas clear of signage and low-cash levels that make the store less attractive to robbers.” She added that the company regularly reviews safety procedures at individual stores whenever an incident occurs. Saanich police are appealing for public help to solve these robberies. Anyone in the Carey and Tillicum area who saw any suspicious persons between 5:30 and 6 a.m. on Saturday can contact the Saanich police at 250-475-4321.

With nearly 20 years’ involvement with United Way, Jim Schneider knows well the reach the non-profit funding organization has within a community. As the 2013 campaign chair for the United Way of Greater Victoria, he is the public face for an 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 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. For information on either program, visit unitedagents.ca, call 250-3856708 or stop by the United Way office at 1144 Fort St. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

Backyard blooms thanks to generous donor $45,000 given anonymously to home for people with cognitive disabilities Edward Hill News staff

At their weekly meetings, residents of Harriet House usually gave Geoff Robards a hard time about the backyard. The lawn was lumpy and uneven and paths too narrow for wheelchairs. For a home with 15 residents, all with cognitive impairments and mobility challenges, the outdoor space was deceivingly treacherous.

At best, Robards, the care team leader and an RN, hoped to fund improvements incrementally over a few years. “I was routinely pilloried about the backyard. I said ‘yes, we hope to raise the money,’” he said. “Then I got to come over one day and said: ‘actually, we have the money, and it’s going to happen.’ ‘When?’ they asked. ‘Monday.’” Last May an anonymous donor handed over $45,000 through the Victoria Foundation to renovate the yard and garden to make it accessible and useful, and insisted the work be completed in time for the residents to enjoy during the summer. The donor, a woman in Victoria, who read about it in a newsletter from Broadmead Care,

which manages Harriet House and its sister Nigel House, both in Saanich and collectively called the Nigel Program for Adults with Disabilities. “She thought everyone should have a garden and be able to use it,” said Kathy Baan, the director of development for Broadmead Care. “We fasttracked the garden reno. It’s an amazing transformation.” “We get anonymous donations occasionally, but not in that quantity and in that time period,” Robards said. “There are lots of little things we’d like to have, and we plan for the distant future or a bit at a time. I wasn’t prepared that it would happen in ... six weeks.” The yard was dug up and the project was completed

is funded through the Vancouver Island Health Authority and B.C. Housing. For people with memory and other neurological problems, large outings to places like Beacon Hill Park can be impractical, Robards said. “The likelihood of having a safe place to congregate is remote. This fills that role for them,” he said. “This place is like an outdoor dining room and rec room. It’s a great place for residents to have a picnic or lunch together ... this adds to their lives, and it would have been impossible without the generosity of the donor.”

over June and July. Cedar pergolas frame an ornamental garden and picnic tables, in a yard split by large concrete patio and a levelled lawn. Waist-high planters give residents relatively easy access to regular horticulture therapy and gardening. “I like this one better. I like the seating and the garden and the fountain. It’s set up like a Starbucks outside with umbrellas and tables,” observed resident Suzanne Bristow, who has been part of the Nigel program for 20 years. “I come here and have coffee. It’s peaceful and quiet.” Robards said it’s hard to overstate how the space will enhance the lives of residents of Harriet House, which

Clients receive a daily stipend, free veggies, and split the sales revenue based on hours spent at the garden over the growing season. “When you are in a situation of being mentally disordered or drug addicted and you live on the street, your sense of community is very narrow. Their community is the 900-block of Pandora,” Quantz said. “This helps develop a sense of a broader community, and where if you work hard, you can make money. “You have street-involved people selling flowers and vegetables to the deputy attorney general. In part, it gives participants a sense that they are part of the community too, that we aren’t in separate worlds.” The key to breaking the cycle of crime and addiction, and to secure the success of projects like the Seven Oaks garden, are the dedicated ACT-VICOT teams, the judge said. “Drug addicted and mentally disordered tend to cycle through the courts, through Eric Martin (hospital), through the emergency room. The key to ACT-VICOT is day-to-day supervision and guidance, and

It’s an amazing resource for the justice system and it’s why I and my wife volunteer here and support them now.” Quantz works with people he’s sent to jail.

helps him with his memory. We were all surprised to hear that,” remarked Jackie Robson, the assistant garden co-ordinator. Bristow, a retired probation officer and a volunteer since the garden broke sod, said the program is still in early days in terms of seeing if it will help break the cycles of addiction and crime for its clients. Anecdotally, the therapeutic successes are obvious and are ready to be adopted by other organizations. Community Living B.C., and Manchester House for offenders on parole, plan to send clients to the Seven Oaks garden. “There are still questions if it will work, but this year we’ve had such an impressive group. The clients all want to be here,” Bristow said. “I know some of them from court. To see them show up clean and sober, that is the influence. (For them) to show up and make a commitment twice a week every week for months – that has an impact,” she said. “It’s little steps for sure.” To donate to the Seven Oaks community garden or to volunteer, contact the John Howard Society at 250-386-3428 or johnhoward.victoria.bc.ca.

Close call for long-boarding teen

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

A collision between a trio of teenaged long-boarders and a pickup truck in Saanich could have ended much worse, after one of the teens escaped serious injury despite being pinned under the vehicle. Saanich police say the incident occurred along the narrow, winding Gordon Point Drive in Gordon Head around 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 28. The three 14-year-old boarders encountered the truck travelling in the opposite direction. While one teen avoided hitting the truck, another fell off his longboard and slid along the road under the vehicle, and the third avoided being hit but grabbed and damaged the tailgate. “Thankfully the driver was travelling extremely slowly at time … and stopped her vehicle prior to

the long-boarder sliding underneath her vehicle,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. “We can’t stress this point enough: when people are using items such as longboards or skateboards of any fashion ... it’s extremely important for them to be able to stop. At the speed (these teens) were travelling, we consider all three fortunate that the injuries were not severe.” The teen that was briefly pinned under the truck sustained only road rash and skin abrasions. Eassie said all three teens took responsibility for their actions and will be paying the $1,000 to $1,500 repair bill for the truck. Skateboarders are allowed to ride on roads and sidewalks in Saanich “however they must do so safety,” Eassie said. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Festival furor part of the deal R

ifflandia, 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 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.

LETTERS Why has SD63 rejected dry grad donations?

Saanich should seek more recreation opportunities

I did not see any headlines blaring the deaths or injuries of intoxicated students. This could be in part to the massive volunteer undertaking of parents to facilitate engaging all-night dry grad events. It is a vast shame that the District 63 school board is repugnant of a donation on behalf of concerned drinkers to help fund dry grad events. Concerned citizens donate thousands of dollars at the liquor board tills that go towards dry grad activities. It is disheartening to learn that all donations made at the Saanich, Broadmead, Brentwood Bay and Sidney liquor stores do not go to Stellys, Parkland or Claremont dry grad activities, but end up in the Victoria and Sooke districts. The District 63 school board is the only board in B.C. that rejects the available funds because of their personal convictions. On Sept. 18 the matter will hopefully, once again, be before the SD 63 board of education. I would like to see all former grads of any school show up at the district parking lot (2125 Keating Cross Rd.) and encourage the elected representatives of the community to change the current policy -- to promote dry grad activities instead of discouraging such a helpful event. Kerry Steinemann Saanich

Re: Rec opportunities abound in Saanich, (Frank Leonard, Aug. 30) It was interesting to read the guest column by Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard. I agree that Saanich has done pretty well over the years promoting parks and recreation and am pleased with the resources that they have put into various recreation programming and maintenance of parks land.  What I would love to see though is Saanich departments becoming more proactive instead of reactive. It shouldn’t always have to be the community members requesting changes and making recommendations. It would be wonderful if at times Saanich could take the initiative and consult with the community in a meaningful way and this could mean to “think outside the box.” A great example would be in the Shelbourne Village, Mount Tolmie areas. Statistics and from surveys conducted for the Shelbourne Valley Action Plan, we know we have a high population of seniors and students who live in this area. But what we don’t have is a community centre.  The ideal spot for one would be the vacant Rogers Video space on Shelbourne Street.  It wouldn’t take that much too run and guaranteed that many volunteers would come forward to help with programming, etc.  And what a wonderful community collaboration of seniors, students,

youth, local merchants and the municipality it could be. This is just one example of community engagement and a reminder to all residents not to be shy about sending your ideas and interests to Saanich. We know that not everything is feasible, but as taxpayers you do have a right to voice your opinion. Maybe this is something to keep in mind as the next municipal election is coming up in 2014. Marlene Bergstrom Saanich

Roadways and sidewalks also used for recreation Re: Rec opportunities abound in Saanich, (Frank Leonard, Aug. 30) Saanich has made some great progress with recreation facilities and getting people active, but the largest recreation facility has been overlooked in this column. The roads and sidewalks throughout the region are used by walkers, runners and cyclists for recreation in numbers that dwarf the patrons using indoor facilities. Mr. Leonard recognizes dedicated facilities such as the Lochside Trail, which are excellent, but these only represent a fraction of users. Of course, the same sidewalks and roadways used for recreation double as facilities for active transportation and are critical to the development of a livable community. Greg Miller Oak Bay

Cuts at UVic will achieve little Re: UVic president inherits tough budget (News, Sept. 13) Making four percent cuts in UVic’s budget sounds like a bureaucratic approach that will achieve little while doing injustice to excellent people there. Small reductions to be more efficient and avoid doing what isn’t necessary should have already been made by each department and cell. As a political organization, UVic will likely decide on the basis of pandering, not performance. B.C.’s universities have traditionally been slow to adapt to needs, again they are out of step on graduating teachers. Private educational companies can change more quickly, shifting some staff to courses of increasing demand and eliminating other courses. UVic is in somewhat of an awkward position as the main university on an island, thus is under pressure to have more faculties than they might otherwise justify. At the same time, however, I point to duplication – look at SFU and UBC for much of that, which often occurs in a fad field such as climate science. A key problem is indirect funding of the ivory tower approach through force of taxation, rather than the values-based decision-making by each individual or benefactor out of their own pocket.

Longtime McD’s employee still lovin’ it

Saanich’s Sharon Sailor lauded for 35 years of service

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 cheerfully working away. 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 cus-

For 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. Earlier this month, restaurant owners Bobi and Glen Bishop honoured her with 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

tomers and recalls 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, joking that she tells Sharon she’ll have to keep working to be able to take care of her mother.

T

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.

Downtown Victoria’s commercial district appears years away from healthy recovery

awn PartridgeWood was full of optimism in the days before opening her dream business in the heart of downtown Victoria. She and her partner, Sterling Daniel Palmer Wood, were eager to fill their new Reporting storefront window with delicate metal sculptures, antique shelving and home decor accents. “When we were starting the business and we talked to the bank, they more or less were saying, ‘We’re at the bottom now. There’s nowhere to go but up,’” Sterling-Wood says. “That’s what other retailers were saying, too,” adds Wood. “And it never went up.” Those happy days three years ago are now just a fading memory, as About The House becomes yet another small business in the downtown core to fall victim to a stagnant economic recovery. The Woods’ story is all too familiar across downtown, as many retailers are faced with either renewing their lease at

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.

blithely increased the rates on commercial property in order to keep residential rates down, and really harmed the future in order to prevent immediate pain,” says Coun. Geoff Young, an economist by trade. Slick new retail space outside Victoria isn’t something council can control, but Young said the city can help by improving transit and continuing to “chip away” at property tax rates. “My private business occupies rental space in the downtown and (property tax) is a very significant part of total occupancy cost. So that is one of the main factors that we’re conscious of and are trying to affect by keeping our rate of budget growth down.” Commercial spaces tend to sit empty for months because landlords are justifiably cautious about who they’re allowing to use the space, Young says. “With retail tenants and restaurants, it’s very expensive to move in and you want someone who’s going to be there for a long time.” Another factor in empty retail space is that commercial real estate valuations tend to be reflective of longer-term economic outlooks. Some contracts signed prior to the 2008 recession are only coming up for renewal now, Young says. If there are vacant spaces that are offering cheaper rent, it could take years before the market rate properly adjusts to the new reality. But an eventual drop in retail lease rates may never come, if early tourism indicators are any indication, said Bruce Carter, CEO of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce. “We’re having a very strong tourism season and very strong retail sales this summer, but it will take awhile before that turns itself into tenants,” he says. Carter is less enthusiastic about the city leading the charge on economic development, but says one small-scale fix would be to revert Yates and Fort streets to two-way streets. “We could use a much more comprehensive strategy as a community, perhaps a citizens committee, going after the festivals and conferences we want, not waiting for them to come to us. And you’d start to see a positive impact on delegate days.” Any grand plans come too late for SterlingWood, who plans to find a retail job in home decor and put to rest her “labour of love.” “I wish I had more positive input for what the city could do to improve things,” she says. “We’re not that optimistic about the economy improving in the next two years, five years – we just don’t know.”

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.

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.

Esquimalt targets stores selling ‘drug paraphernalia’ Daniel Palmer News staff

Esquimalt bong stores could go up in smoke next year, thanks to a proposed bylaw change put forward at a council meeting last week. Following on the heels of Coun. Tim Morrison’s attempt to outlaw a bong

mascot in the township earlier this year, the updated business licence and regulation bylaw includes the following: “Any business selling drug paraphernalia will not be permitted to operate within a three-kilometre radius from any school grounds.” As Esquimalt is only seven square kilometres in total, the ban would effectively

apply to the entire municipality. Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins admitted staff may have difficulty defining what constitutes “drug paraphernalia,” should the bylaw be approved. “Maybe a syringe, those are commonly sold at drug stores for diabetics. Hookah pipes may be a culturally significant

apparatus that has no implication with drug use, but can be used for that purpose,” she said. Ryan Place, owner of The Bong Warehouse, said council is wasting its time by pursuing the agenda of a minority of people. “We’re right in the middle of a referendum for the decriminalization of marijuana going on right now, and they’re talking about going after paraphernalia stores,” he said. “Anyone who’s worried about this store being three kilometres away from their kid, I think that’s more of a parenting issue than anything.”
