Sidney’s scooter plan runs out of juice Tom Fletcher Black Press
A bid by the Town of Sidney to regulate the use of mobility scooters on sidewalks was rejected in a split vote by local politicians Wednesday. On the advice of the executive, delegates to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention voted to drop a request for provincial licensing of sidewalk scooters, and
to exclude motorized wheelchairs from any restrictions. But a majority of delegates voted against any kind of regulation. Sidney Mayor Larry Cross urged support, telling delegates there has been one fatality in his community, and two “serious rollovers” this past summer as scooters shared sidewalks with pedestrians. “We’re kind of the canary in the mine in terms of the aging popula-
tion, and the incidents and conflicts can only grow over time,” Cross said. Other council members were unimpressed. “If you have a problem with your sidewalks and people are rolling over, maybe you need to fix the sidewalks,” said Langley Township councillor Bob Long. “There are motorized bicycles, so is that the next thing, we’re going to license bicycles?”
Sidney councillor Melissa Hailey said the community has “wonderful sidewalks,” but education and some regulation is needed. “There is no real legislation or any ability to deal with unsafe scootering on our sidewalks,” Hailey said. “Drinking and scootering is very hard to enforce.” Nelson councillor Robin Cherbo said some solution is needed. His community has narrow sidewalks

and some scooter users take to the roadway, without flags or lights. Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski was opposed, after talking with scooter and wheelchair users in his community. Saanich councillor Vic Derman agreed that scooter users and pedestrians need education, but communities should focus on local improvements to give scooter users more safe routes.

Tour de Rock rider grateful for donations Don Descoteau News staff
Arnold Lim recalls the days when noted Greater Victoria artist Ted Harrison would come into his restaurant, Korean Gardens, for dinner with his son. The two were fast friends, to the point where Harrison donated a framed print of one of his colourful paintings as a wedding gift to Lim and his wife 10 years ago. While that piece of artwork sadly was destroyed later in a flood, Black
Press freelancer and former staffer Lim has been gifted another Harrison print. This time it’s a donation to help his fundraising efforts as a media rider on the 2013 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. “That’s pretty exciting for me,” says Lim, who leaves for Port Alice this weekend with his fellow media and police riders. “He’s just a really special guy and part of the fabric of the community in Victoria.” The print of “Land and Sea,” a 1989 work by Harrison, was donated by a
Black Press staffer and framed professionally by Prestige Picture Framing Etc., located two doors away from Harrison’s former gallery space on Oak Bay Avenue. Online auction bids for the beautifully finished artwork are being accepted at vicnews.com/contests. Bid deadline is Oct. 4. If you’d like to donate otherwise to Lim’s Tour de Rock fundraising efforts, or any other rider, visit tourderock.ca and follow the links. firstname.lastname@example.org

Costs of recycling shakeup under fire at UBCM Municipalities refused to sign on the MMBC by the Monday deadline Jeff Nagel Black Press
B.C. civic leaders on Monday grilled the head of a new industry-led recycling agency over the costs and downsides of the new system set to replace municipally run blue box pick up next spring. Vancouver Councillor Adriane Carr said she’s “gravely concerned” that Multi Material B.C.’s $110-million annual budget to recover packaging and printed paper province-
wide is much lower than the $190 million already spent each year in Metro Vancouver alone on recycling services. “If there are significant cost reductions, you have to ask what are the service reductions,” said Carr, who warned it would be “backwards” if cities that have built strong recycling programs now see them shrivel under MMBC. She and other municipal delegates at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conven-

tion in Vancouver this week pressed MMBC managing director Allen Langdon to increase the prices offered to local cities to act as collectors under the new system. Langdon said he’s willing to talk to concerned cities but gave no sign of sweetening the offers already made. “There’s a limit to what producers can actually sustain,” he said, referring to the firms that are responsible for recovering packaging and paper under new provincial regulations.
Nor would he commit to specific targets for reducing the amount of packaging encasing goods sold in B.C. Langdon said producers will pay their share of the program based on how much packaging they generate, giving them a price signal to reduce their packaging or make it more recyclable. But Carr said that could still allow producers and retailers to simply pass the extra costs along to consumers. Many cities refused to
sign on by a Monday deadline to act as collectors of recyclables under proposed contracts, either indicating they’ll keep running their own systems without MMBC financial aid or else they’ll leave the job entirely for MMBC to contract out to private collectors. MMBC agreed to let cities take more time and join the program after the scheduled May 19 launch date, setting the stage for more negotiations. — Black Press

Spending habits need to change A call by municipalities for the province to share some of its revenues at this week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities conference in Vancouver is an attempt to get more of the monies generated in local communities, which they can then use to put back into their infrastructure. The effort is led by Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard and is realistic in that it’s not asking for that money now — but in the future when so-called boom times arrive in this province. Municipalities are hoping that the province will return a larger share of money collected for such things as the property transfer tax on local real estate sales. It would be used to pay for infrastructure — water and sewer upgrades and transit improvements. The effort places its hopes that the economy will once again boom in B.C. and local communities will get their share. At least the municipalities are being realistic about having to wait for such a program to come to pass — if the province even agrees to it. Whether it’s realistic to expect an economic boom derived from such plans as the province’s liquefied natural gas focus — that remains to be seen. In the meantime, municipalities facing huge infrastructure costs are going to have to tighten their belts and set their priorities. There’s little doubt they have been doing that for years but for those towns and cities facing enormous costs for water or sewer treatment facilities — or even just the ongoing breakdown of their decades-old pipes and streets — they will probably have to sacrifice the extras their citizens have come to expect. B.C. municipalities facing added costs down the road should heed the 2012 spending report conducted by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. It showed, in general, that spending has outpaced municipal growth. In Sidney’s case, the town saw an increase of 25 per cent in its spending over 10 years (2000-2010) compared with a three per cent population growth. That’s one of the better ratios in B.C. Central and North Saanich fall in the middle of the pack. Sidney, Central Saanich and North Saanich do not appear to have major infrastructure challenges right now and have sought contributions for their infrastructure from developers. As such, Sidney and North Saanich are able to afford the luxury of $35,000 grants-in-aid programs. Other municipalities have much smaller budgets for this or none at all.

Incineration is also expensive and inefficient. Once we start the practice, we come to rely on waste as a fuel commodity, and it’s tough to go back to more environmentally sound methods of dealing with it. As has been seen in Sweden and Germany, improving efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle can actually result in shortages of waste “fuel”! We need to find ways to manage waste and to generate energy without relying on diminishing and increasingly expensive supplies of polluting fossil fuels. Sending trash to landfills is clearly not the best solution. But we have better options than landfills and incineration, starting with reducing the amount of waste we produce. Through education and regulation, we can reduce obvious sources and divert more compostable, recyclable and reusable materials away from the dump. It’s simply wasteful to incinerate it. It would be far better to sort trash into organics, recyclables and products that require careful disposal. We could then divert these different streams to minimize our waste impacts and produce new commodities. Organics used in biomass energy systems could offset fossil fuel use while creating supplies of fertilizers. Diversion and recycling lessen the need to extract new resources and disrupt the environment while creating more value and jobs. davidsuzuki.org.

Composter squandered opportunity
oubling the composting facility along ‘Toxide’ Drive? Under the CRD suspension, Foundation Organics has been offered a unique opportunity which they have completely squandered. With the reduced incoming tonnage, they could have proven the technology, improved their handling of the raw product and proven their role as a socially responsible corporation. However, even with this opportunity, they still can’t get it right. Therefore, their application to CRD to increase the incoming raw material from 10,000 tons to 18,500 tons per
annum should be denied and in addition, the existing facility should be shut down. I was able to read their Aug. 30 application to the CRD with interest and a great deal of skepticism. I am aghast at the sheer effrontery of the application, the spurious claims made therein and the questionable science used to bolster their arguments. For example, they have not provided a barrier to rats. A gentleman mentioned at the Central Saanich Council meeting of Sept. 3 that he followed a loaded truck into the building. What’s to stop the rats from doing the same thing? According to a news report last
week, Vancouver Island is in the midst of a rat population explosion. In the application it is stated that they haven’t noticed any rats. In addition, most of the residents of Central Saanich affected by the odour live outside the arbitrary 500m zone referred to on the final page of the application. Why even draw a 500m circle? Municipal bylaw states smells are not to leave the property. Therefore we can assume that Foundation Organics don’t intend to abide by that law from the get go. R. Viggers Central Saanich
Readers respond: North Saanich council, McTavish roundabout Courage, council The Sept. 9 North Saanich council meet demonstrated the difference between Counsellors Brown, Daly, McBride and Mearns compared to Mayor Finall with Counsellors McMurphy and Stock. With standing room only, citizens expressed concern about the reports’ quality, impact on tax payers and failure to address affordable housing. Emphasis on increased density ignored alternative housing such as nanny suites, legal suites and housing for elderly or disabled. Defeat of the staff recommendation to have a public review when impact information is available demonstrates contempt for citizen involvement. I admire intelligent, thoughtful and courageous people who contribute to our community.
Thanks to recorded meetings, you can witness Mayor Finall, and Counsellors McMurphy and Stock steadfastly address issues through clear informed principles a contrast to off-thecuff opinion and drama.
Noreen Campbell North Saanich
Council or Senate? It seems that some councillors have mistaken North Saanich for the Canadian Senate. Councillors Browne, Mearns and McBride find it is acceptable to walk off the job. In most employment situations other than the Senate, that would be grounds for dismissal. However they feel not only can they walk off the job, but that the recently held public hearing process involves only hearing and not actually listening to the con-
cerns repeatedly raised about their drive to impose high density, market priced housing on the District. Their plans do nothing to ease our affordable housing shortfall. If they cannot be removed from office for dereliction of duty then they at least should do the right thing and resign since they do not have the public interest at heart. Tom Gore North Saanich
A cruel joke The Kelset Elementary School Grade 3 class “Let’s Design A Traffic Roundabout” contest was great fun but it’s time to be serious again. There is no point on beating this to death, as all are aware of the hilarious out-
come of a long and expensive project. As it has been functioning in it’s twisted manner for some time now, people are starting to become familiar with the drill. I had the pleasure recently of instant religion when on a wet morning an SUV pilot decided he had to channel Danica Patrick on the last S curve feeding onto the McTavish roundabout. As he fishtailed towards me I felt just a little queasy. Others are also deciding that they have to “whip” through the curves and attempt to straddle the poor mesmerized tourists yearning to return to Alberta by locating the exit for B.C. Ferries. Nobody is laughing anymore. Fix this cruel joke now and make all of us safer. Dave Dennis Saanichton

Europe’s Beauty Secret Clinically Proven!
Fewer lines and wrinkles, thicker hair, stronger nails and denser bones.
Collagen is the key. Molecular biologists have pinpointed the key structural protein for creating smooth skin, thick strong hair, and strong nails. It’s your body’s beauty protein, collagen. During youth, you have a rich abundance of collagen. In addition, the collagen forms itself in a resilient “tight mesh” matrix. This “ideal” collagen condition prevents wrinkles from forming, gives skin elasticity, helps create thick, beautiful hair and strong nails. But over the years, collagen diminishes. Starting at age 21, collagen diminishes by 1% per year. By age 30, signs of reduced collagen on skin, hair and nails become visible, not to mention the increase risk of fracture for bones. Say the words “healthy bones,” and the first word that probably pops up is calcium, but did you know that bones are made up of 30% collagen? Collagen provides strength and flexibility to bones. When collagen diminishes – your risk of fracture increases! Now, genuine collagen regeneration is possible with clinically proven BioSil™. BioSil, a patented cholinestabilized orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA®) complex, helps your body to generate its own collagen to provide support for denser and more flexible bones as well as beautiful skin, hair and nails. BioSil has been tested in rigorous double-blind placebo controlled trials for both efficacy and safety. Regenerate Collagen with BioSil, the only clinically proven product with ch-OSA – the most absorbable form of silicon.
Guaranteed to work!

Green Drinks on the Peninsula Saanich Peninsula chapter started by Alicia Cormier
Devon MacKenzie News staff
A new monthly networking group is set to meet on the Peninsula. Green Drinks is an international organization that started in 1989 at a pub called the Slug and Lettuce in North London. Edwin Datschefski was sitting with green design colleagues and noticed an envirominded acquaintance at a nearby table. As it turned out, the friend was also sitting with
other like minded individuals and the the movement was born. “A Victoria chapter has been running for a number of years and I was hearing from many people that a local chapter for the Peninsula would be a good idea so I decided to get the ball rolling,” said Alicia Cormier. The Saanich Peninsula chapter will hold their meetings on the last Tuesday of every month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The first three meet-
Alicia Cormier ings (Sept. 24, Oct. 29 and Nov. 26) will be held at Zanzibar Café (1164 Stelly’s X Rd.) Cost to attend is $10 and includes appetizers.
NOTICE OF TAX SALE
“There are lots of benefits to green drinks; they are hard to quantify, but when you have seen people come and make new contacts, learn from one another and work together on new ideas and interesting projects it’s a good feeling,” said Cormier. Those interested in learning more about the meetings can contact Cormier for details at 250-893-5070.
In accordance with Section 254 of the Community Charter, the following properties will be offered for sale by public auction, to be held in the Council Chambers of Central Saanich Municipal Hall, 1903 Mt.

When Default took a breather, Smith said he decided to literally jump right in and pursue his country dreams and came out with his debut album Jumped Right In. “The album title describes how this experience has gone for me,” said Smith.
“I kind of closed my eyes and made that leap of faith.” The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $39.50 through the Mary Winspear box office. Charge by phone at 250-656-0275 or online at www.marywinspear. ca. — Submitted

IN MEMORIAM GIFTS
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE BC Help Tomorrowâ€™s Families Todayâ€“ leave a gift in your will. email@example.com
DEATHS Noreen Johnston November 28, 1921 ~ September 9, 2013 She was brought up in Vancouver where she helped build planes at Boeingâ€™s during the War. She married a RCAF Pilot soon after and later was dedicated to her daughter Jessoa Darwel and her husband Alexander Charles Johnston who increasingly became a disabled War Vet and passed away in 1971. In 1955 she began 11 years of service as President of the Vancouver Red Cross Volunteer Corps â€œof 1800â€? after 8 simultaneous blood transfusions saved her life. In the 1970â€™s and 80â€™s she volunteered in Victoria at Blood Donor Clinics, she worked at â€˜Tridentâ€™ on the Peninsula in the late 1970â€™s. She traveled across Canada - and extensively on the West Coast of the US - in her travel trailer, gold panning in the far North more than once. Her daughter profoundly respects her unwavering honesty, courage, patience and humility by which she never ceased to live her life.
