So long, summer

school trustee publicly scolded Don Descoteau News staff

William Shepherd/News staff

Lynn Baffe of Whitehorse and Mike Bolli of Prince George, meet for a cup of coffee at Starbucks at Government and Yates streets on Monday. The pair was enjoying another great day of summer weather.

As fall beckons, Victorians bask in the glory of a great summer Don Descoteau News staff

Like the last drops of juice being squeezed from an orange, the sun shines brightly on one of summer’s final days as passengers disembark the Norwegian Sun cruise ship at Ogden Point. Down the road a ways, a foursome of shorts-clad elderly men bash a tennis

ball around the court. And in the Inner Harbour, a mostly full MV Coho drops off another load of passengers and vehicles to the city as a full parking lot of visitors prepare to say so long to Victoria. As locals and visitors alike say so long to summer 2013 on Sunday with the heralding of the first day of fall, a look back at an awesome summer is in order. Greater Victoria residents will likely

talk about the fabulous rain-free July, with its multitude of events from Northwest Deuce Days and Buskers Festival to Rock the Shores and Canada Day, as a highlight. But overall, summer has been memorable from various perspectives.

Greater Victoria school district Trustee Deborah Nohr has been censured by the board of education for alleged harassment of a senior district staff member. The move, announced in a statement by board chair Peg Orcherton at a meeting Monday night, follows an independent investigation into the matter by Vancouver lawyer Judith Anderson. Orcherton confirmed Wednesday the decision to publicly censure Nohr was made after trustees reviewed Anderson’s findings at a special meeting Sept. 12. Orcherton wouldn’t say who was in attendance at that meeting or comment further on the matter. Censure is typically a written expression of formal disapproval for one’s actions but does not disqualify a trustee from serving on the board. It has rarely been used by school boards in B.C. and Orcherton said it’s the first time such action has been taken in her 11 years on the Greater Victoria board. The statement she read Monday listed allegations against Nohr: n Failing to respect the will of the majority of the board. n Sending an email of which the timing, content and distribution was offensive and derogatory to a senior staff member. n Communicating directly with an agency in a manner that could have led to sanctions and penalties on the school district.

Munro’s Books celebrates 50 years in business this Saturday

n keeping with his personable nature, Jim Munro sits in front of his heavy antique desk for an interview rather than behind it. The owner and operator of Munro’s Books, which officially celebrates its 50th year in business tomorrow (Sept. 21), looks around his corner office in the 1909 former Royal Bank building at 1108 Government St. Surrounded by specialorder books for pickup, a washroom, a computer on a separate desk and various other pieces of memorabilia, Munro says he originally designed it to feel like a bank manager’s office. An old poster sits high on a ledge between a large, colourful tapestry by his wife, the noted fabric artist Carole Sabiston, and the streetside stained glass Don Descoteau window.

New Victoria police chief hiring in limbo Daniel Palmer News staff

Victoria’s new police chief will have to wait in the wings while the B.C. government finds police board members conducive to its vision for regional policing. The terms of four provincially appointed members on the Victoria-Esquimalt Police Board expired Sunday, delaying the board’s ability to approve a replacement for VicPD Chief Const. Jamie Graham, who is retiring. Although not officially announced, it is being reported that Frank Eisner has been selected as the next Victoria

police chief. Eisner has more than 30 years of policing experience. He is the current chief of the Greater Sudbury police department. “Currently, we have only four members on the board and we need nine in order to function,” said Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins, police board vice-chair. In a statement, Justice Minister Suzanne Anton said the delayed appointments aren’t expected to hinder the hiring of a new VicPD chief, and said her ministry has already completed interviews and is in the candidate selection process for replacement police board members. “I have to ensure a police

board has the talent and capacity to take on its strategic goals and maintain co-operative police work across its municipal boundaries,” Anton said. “To these ends, we are changing the provincial complement of appointees to support the mediator’s work and ultimately strengthen the Victoria-Esquimalt policing relationship.” Anton did not confirm when the new board members will be appointed. For more than a year, the police board – comprised of Desjardins, Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin, two municipal and up to five provincial appointees – has been negotiating behind closed

Cyclist hopes to conquer Tour de Victoria on one leg Phil Chew says it’s all about focus Daniel Palmer News staff

Phil Chew sees longdistancing cycling like a chess game: make subtle but strategic moves early on and you’ll start to see dividends when the board thins out. So on Sunday, when the 61-year-old hits the first of over 1,500 metres of incline during Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria, he’ll take advantage of his missing leg where he can. “I’m a really good climber because I’m so light. With one leg, I’m not as fast on the flats,” Chew says from his home in Whistler. “I love ripping the face off any two-legged person out there, that’s my goal.” Chew lost his leg to cancer in 1977 and shared the same rehabilitative ward as Terry Fox at the B.C. Cancer Control Agency in Vancouver. While his old friend became the poster child for conquering the disease, Chew fought his own mental and physical battle to become one

Phil Chew, 61, is ready to take on Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria this Sunday. of the world’s top downhill skiers of the 1980s and 1990s. More than three decades later, Chew is regularly competing in dozens of granfondo-style races, most recently pulling off a top seven per cent finish in his age group at this year’s GranFondo Whistler, a gruelling 122km ride up the Sea-toSky Highway with more than 1,700 metres of climbing.

“I’’ve met a few guys over the years who do (one-legged cycling) … but I still don’t have a direct comparison,” he says. “A lot of amputees are too smart to do that long a distance.” About 1,600 people are registered for the third annual Tour de Victoria this weekend, with about 1,000 cyclists set to ride alongside Chew and Hesjedal on the 140km route. Shorter 100km and 50-km routes are

also available for less competitive riders. “We do tend to get a lot of last-minute registrations,” says organizer Seamus McGrath. “We hit 1,750 last year, but it’s hard to say at this point. If it pours rain, we might stay at that. If it’s sunny, we could hit 2,000.” McGrath says he’s been most impressed with how the community rallies behind the event, despite an organizational nightmare with six police departments through nearly every Capital Region jurisdiction. “There’s never been anything negative, we just have to go through the right channels and everyone supports it wholeheartedly,” he says. Chew hopes to complete this year’s Tour de Victoria in under five hours after running into mechanical problems during last year’s ride. “I think I can do maybe under 4:50, realistically. … I’m doing this is to show others that people with disabilities can achieve some unbelievable things, not just amongst disabled people, but amongst the ten-toed freaks too.”

Riders ready to roll Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria is a massparticipation cycling event that transverses most of Greater Victoria. The routes include: n 140 kilometres: The route includes several challenging climbs and showcases some of the best roads in Greater Victoria. Riders will cycle through Colwood, Metchosin, the Highlands, the Saanich Peninsula and Victoria’s waterfront. Start time: 7 a.m., B.C. legislature n 100 kilometres: The course offers some

challenging hills, but gets them out of the way first. Riders cycle through Langford, the Highlands, Saanich Peninsula and Victoria’s waterfront. Start time: 8:15 a.m., Langford City Centre Park. n 50 kilometres: The course is relatively flat, with just three challenging but short hills to test the legs.

teloo were reappointed by the province in October 2012 by then-Justice Minister Shirley Bond. Municipal appointees Peter Ryan and Joan Kotarski have been reappointed to their board positions along with Fortin and Desjardins. Graham’s retirement is effective Dec. 31.

Tour de Rock begins this weekend Two-week bike trek raises funds for pediatric cancer research Kyle Slavin News staff

This year’s 21-member Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team will begin its twoweek fundraising journey on Saturday (Sept. 21), raising

money for pediatric cancer research. The team will be sent off in style Saturday morning, with a community send-off at Admirals Walk in View Royal. “Saturday’s send-off isn’t about sending the riders up-Island, it’s about community and showing support for an important cause that can have a deep impact on communities everywhere on the Island,” said Black Press media rider Arnold Lim.

Lim and his fellow teammates – police officers, media members and special guests – will cycle nearly 1,100 kilometres from Sept. 21 to Oct. 4 from Port Alice to Victoria. Money raised goes to pediatric cancer research and support programs for children living with cancer. Lim says he’s looking forward to Tour, after having spent the last eight months training on the bike and fundraising.

“What I’m quickly realizing now is that the training that prepared us physically isn’t necessarily the toughest part. There’s a lot, mentally and emotionally, that’s happening already and that will happen when we’re on Tour,” he said. “I’m trying to mentally and emotionally prepare myself for what I believe will be the most intense two weeks of my life.” Saturday’s send-off runs

from 7 to 9 a.m. in front of the Admirals Walk Coast Capital Savings branch (1499 Admirals Rd.). Refreshments and snacks will be served before the Tour riders begin their journey.

y l i m a f Service providers on front line at UWay kickoff play Don Descoteau News staff

Visitors to Ogden Point Tuesday morning got a glimpse into the work being done in their community for those in need. Staff from roughly two dozen service providers, from Our Place to B.C. Families in Transition to Community Microlending, set up shop temporarily inside the terminal building as part of the 2013 campaign kickoff for the Greater Victoria United Way. All of the agencies are funded by United Way, and their representatives did their best to get the message across to visitors how the money they receive helps those in need. Claire Reynolds, a 40-year registered nurse who works in the intensive care unit at Victoria General Hospital, began volunteering with United Way in Grade 10 and hasn’t looked back. Her first experience as a loaned rep

– employers pay their employees’ salary while they work with the organization to help guide workplace campaigns – opened her eyes to the work United Way does to target groups that do the most good in the community. On a tour of service provider sites, she was amazed at the army of volunteers who make things work behind the scenes and on the front lines. “After the first visit, I promised myself I would give all of my donation to them,” she recalled. “The next one changed my mind, and by about the fifth agency, I was thinking ‘I’m just going to give it to United Way and let them figure out where best to put the money.’ Everybody out there is doing amazing work.” Part of the reward of volunteering, she said, is helping others who may not know some of these support agencies exist in the community. Under the guise of fedoras and trenchcoats – this year’s slo-

WATER MAIN FLUSHING IN VICTORIA Each year, Victoria’s water mains are “flushed” to remove sediment and maintain high quality drinking water. This fall the City of Victoria wil be doing this work between October 1 and November 29, in the following areas: • Ross Bay West • Beacon Hill South • Gonzales • Beacon Hill North • Fairfield During this time, short periods of water discolouration and low water pressure may be experienced. To prevent any staining from discoloured water, run the cold tap in your shower or bath until the water is clear. Commercial establishments such as laundromats, beauty salons, hotels and restaurants are invited to contact Public Works at 250.361.0400 for further details and advance warning of flushing dates in their specific location.

gan is Be an Agent of Change – United Way board members unveiled the 2013 campaign goal of $6 million. Interim CEO Heather Gardiner said of the slogan: “It’s an empowering role that people can play. Change is one of those things that is a constant in life. We’ve got to frame it so people see it as positive.” She said the board was comfortable setting the goal at roughly what was raised last year. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

Parents know if you take your child to the park they will play. If there are other children there, the children will often end up playing together and the parents watch. Why does this happen? It may surprise adults to find out the reason that many children prefer to play with other children is due to the fact that their parent(s) seemed to have forgotten how to play. Really get down and play. To prove their point, when was the last time you were rolling down a grassy hill or were “it” in a game of tag? Saanich Recreation is offering a new free program in local playgrounds to help connect families with the joy of playing together. You will play many of the games and activities kids play at camp.

OUR VIEW

Celebrating a Victoria icon When a locally owned, independent business survives 50 years, it’s something to be celebrated. When it’s a bookstore that has elegantly survived the disruptive technology of cheap online books, paperless e-books and big box stores, that sends a hopeful message – not all consumer culture has to devolve to the click of a button or exist under the glare of fluorescent lights in warehouse shopping centres. This Saturday, Munro’s Books celebrates 50 years of business. Jim Munro and his first wife Alice Munro (the author) opened in 1963 in the alley near the Odeon Theatre on Yates Street. The store has since thrived for 29 years in its current Old Town Government Street location. More akin to a small cathedral than a bookstore, the 1909 neo-classical stone building, Roman columns and arched ceilings draw locals and visitors for the architecture and atmosphere (think live string quartets at Christmas) almost as much as its selection of books, literature and obscure magazines. Those 29 years ago, Jim Munro took a big risk in rescuing and restoring the grand old building the Royal Bank covered over in 1950s banality. Book-selling isn’t a high-margin business, but Munro’s gamble has paid off in terms of its reputation as a must-see tourist venue and a place for locals to peruse the best in new nonfiction and novels. Aside from its charm and good looks, Munro’s has stayed the course in terms of stocking a smart mix of literature, non-fiction, Canadian writing and local authors on its bookshelves. At the same time it bucked the trend that suggests a bleak future for independent bookstores, Its employees are famously loyal, educated and long-standing. Some have been authors themselves or have gone on to open their own bookstores. Munro’s Books represents the best of what Greater Victorians like to see in an independent business. An architectural delight and a cultural touchstone, the city should be proud of this institution. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@vicnews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

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.

LETTERS Columnist’s views on CUPE rile reader Re: Back to school labour woes (B.C. Views, Sept. 4) What’s with Tom Fletcher’s animosity towards public education? Did he serve one too many detentions as a lad? Has he forgotten the bumper sticker, “If you can read this, thank a teacher”? Not content to trash teachers, he’s now moved on to the rest of the school staff, twisting facts to suit his purposes. Here are three of the more egregious examples: (1) “Only two provincial employee groups have yet to do this [move to co-operative gains]: school support staff and teachers.” The groups have nothing to offer; but the school boards have had to repeatedly cut back district budgets. (2) “CUPE … has a sophisticated media campaign

to generate public sympathy …” This is paid for out of members’ dues; the government toots its own horn with taxpayers’ dollars. (3) Fletcher looks at CUPE benefits “on behalf of those selfemployed taxpayers who have no paid holidays, no employer pension or benefits …” Selfemployed people are that way by their own choice! And some of them do very well, financially. It must be wonderful to sit at one’s computer and trash people for a living. If Mr. Fletcher is upset about CUPE contract provisions, he must be incensed about Liberal appointees’ bonuses. Lorraine Lindsay Saanich

Smart meter opt-out leaves little choice I’m getting a little confused with B.C. Hydro. Months ago I phoned them and said I do not

want the meter changed and gave them my address in Esquimalt. I also told them that my husband and I have a house in Saanich. It’s a rental property and we didn’t want the meter changed on that one, either. The person on the line told me, “It’s up to the person that lives in the house, not you.” When I asked why, telling them that I own the house, they said, “That doesn’t matter, we don’t know if you really own the house in Saanich.” Last Friday (Sept. 13) a form came to our house in Esquimalt addressed to my father, who has not lived here for years and has given me permission to read his mail. Both his name and mine are on the B.C. Hydro bill and I legally own half the house. When I phoned B.C. Hydro again I was told they would not send me a form (requesting no smart meter) since I was not on the account, and asked me to

send the form to my father and have him sign and return it. I was also asked to get my father to phone B.C. Hydro so my name could be put on the account. That did not make sense, especially since when I get the bill in the mail my name is on it. Right now, it looks like I have no say in any of my homes. We know our renters cannot afford to pay more for their hydro and we cannot afford to pay more, so we feel we are forced to give in. Sandra Dixon, Keith McGregor   Esquimalt

Hydro letter causes confusion I received my letter from B.C. Hydro laying out my options regarding smart meters. One of the last lines of the letter is, “Costs will be reviewed by the B.C. Utilities Commission.”

The B.C. Utilities Commission has a record of often adjusting the fees proposed by B.C. Hydro. The costs proposed by B.C. Hydro appear to be ridiculously high – I use approximately $30 worth of power in a two-month billing period during the summer, about $15 a month. So B.C. Hydro intends to charge me $35 to determine I owe them $15? There is a strong possibility the Utility Commission will determine the proposed B.C. Hydro fee increases are inappropriate and will order them to be lowered. If the rates may be other than the B.C. Hydro letter proposes, I can not be considered fully informed and am at a considerable disadvantage if I sign their opt-out card. I do not know what the fees will be after the B.C. Utilities Commission reviews them. Norm Ryder Saanichton

Online art auction helps Tour de Rock fundraising 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 to start the tour 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. Online auction bids for the beautifully finished artwork are being accepted at vicnews.com/contests. Bid deadline is Oct. 4. editor@vicnews.com

Businesses warm to great season Continued from Page A1

“It’s been great for sure. We had a really, really successful season,” said Ben Duthie, Victoria sales and operations manager for Prince of Whales whale watching. “In a way, September is my favourite time of year because there’s more whales around than we have people looking to whale-watch.” In his third season at the helm, Duthie said it seemed more locals took tours this summer. “That was not only due to the good weather, but an increase in awareness for whale watching. We’re trying to reach out to locals more and let them know that this area is globally recognized as one of the best places to watch killer whales.” Scott Renton, general manager at Canoe Brewpub, which has a large outdoor patio overlooking the Upper Harbour, said they had a “solid start to the summer.” “It always feels like one of the months is great and one is hit and miss, it just depends on where that month comes up for us,” he said. While September began rather drearily with grey skies and intermittent rain, he said events such as Great Canadian Beerfest, Rifflandia and others help carry summer out with a bang. “It’s nice to see all those events in September; nice to see that activity.” From a weather standpoint, Vancouver-based Environment Canada meteorologist David Jones agreed that July and even early August were “spectacular.”

Spectacular summer n Summer began with about average warm temperatures in late June, but cranked up the heat the last few days, hitting 31 C on June 30. n July set a record for hours of sunshine with 432.8, beating the old record of 421.5 set in 1985. The rainless month was only the fourth on record for the Capital Region n August temperatures continued warm, with 22 days at or above the norm of 21 or 22 C. The 31.9 millimetres of rain recorded was above the average of 20 mm. n With the exception of a few hotter-thanaverage days last week (the 31 C high on Sept. 11 set a new record), September has so far had slightly above average highs temperatures and about average rainfall.

“June was better than it has been lately, and August was OK, but the standout is July,” he said. “Lately, we’ve had good Septembers, but by the time we get to Oct. 1, you’re kind of holding your breath waiting for the rain to start.” So as one season comes to a close tomorrow (Sept. 21) and the typical signs of fall arrive – rain is predicted through the weekend – take a moment to contemplate summer 2013, a good example of why most of us love living in Greater Victoria. We hope it’ll warm your heart.

Choices grow for BISG E U S I women with childbirth ■ EDWARD HILL, NEWS STAFF

Until the 1950s, many Canadian women gave birth under a haze of drugs in what was called a “twilight sleep.” In the 1960s and ’70s breastfeeding fell out of vogue in favour of bottle-fed formula. And until relatively recently, newborns were whisked away from their moms and wheeled into a nursery. Attitudes and ideas on pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum care in Canada and North America have evolved dramatically over the last century. In the early

1900s, most childbirths took place at home under the care of a midwife or family doctor. Medical science took hold of labour with the rise of pain medications and technology, reducing infant and mother mortality, while pathologizing pregnancy. These days, more women and their partners are seeking the best of both worlds: adopting the wisdom of the past and having a midwife as their primary care provider, while having the modern medical system as a strong safety net.

“We made a decision to go with a midwife based a lot on friends’ birth experiences. The best birth experiences had a midwife,” says Meaghan Sibbett, 32, who is having her first child with husband Kush Bubbar, 34. Both attended prenatal classes at Mothering Touch in Victoria. “For me it seemed a more holistic way. (Midwives) spend more time with you and support the birth partner more than the medical model,” she says. “I think of the medical model in terms of control. Doctors are medical experts, but during

Pets that go beep, beep

Reliving the tamagotchi effect

VICTORIA

VICTORIA VICTORIA VICTORIA VICTORIA VICTORIA VICTORIA

Now, of course, you can Google it and see there are names for it (the “Tamagotchi effect”), debates about it (“ . . .is virtual reality a ■ SUSAN LUNDY FEATURE WRITER means of escaping the problems of modern-day life?”), warnings from psychologists (amid “fears of gender stereotyping”); as well as ongoing controversy among parents, school officials and even animal rights activists. Back then, it was just a Tamagotchi or, in our case, a Giga Pet — and those of you who have never had the honour of handling one of these beeping, insistent little monsters should immediately fall to the ground in humble thanks. The watch-size computer games offer the handler an irritating little pet, which to grow — even live — must be fed, burped, exercised and cooed at. Imagine placing a virtual life into the hands of a child who cannot hold onto a pair of socks from one day to the next. But over 10 million Tamagotchis have been sold since their debut in 1996. I confess to purchasing two of the little beasts in one of those air-headed moments. Thankfully, these Giga Pets were aimed at young players, and had a magical feature: a pause button. My daughters, Danica and Sierra, played

frantically with their new toys — beep, beep, beep — for about a week until one day (thank god) the batteries died. But this was not before Sierra, then five, was traumatized by the Tamagotchi effect (“the development of emotional attachment with machines or robots or even software agents”). Both pets were based on The Little Mermaid story. At any given time the pets were a fish, sea horse, jellyfish or crab. Pets that became too unhappy, hungry, out of shape, sick or merely petulant (all from lack of attention to the pause button) disappeared by means of a great hook that dragged them off the screen to Ursula, the wicked sea witch. Sierra had become particularly attached to her “crabbie.” After all, a pet is a pet. So when the hook dragged off crabbie while I was at work, I received a call from a devastated child. “Sob, gasp, sob.” “Sierra, what’s the matter?” “Sob. Ursula g-g-got crabbie.” “Oh. You sound very sad. Good thing it’s just a computer and crabbie’s not real.” “Gasp, sob, weep. What will Ursula do with crabbie?” “Ursula’s not really there. It’s just pretend.” “D-D-Daddy said Ursula’s going to have crab sandwiches for dinner.” “Oh, sweetheart, of course not!”

Famıly victoria

Pause. “Put your father on the phone.” About a year later, good ole dad decided to buy new Giga Pet batteries. By then only one could be found, so after tearing the house part, I reluctantly purchased another. Of course, the only virtual pet left in the entire universe was much more difficult and, horrifyingly, it had no pause button. My elder daughter took on care of it, but unfortunately, she had to sleep, the pet required 24hour care, and I could only grasp a basic understanding of how this pet worked. Danica — patient, but on the edge of hysteria — explained all I must do throughout the night to prevent the death of her pet. Sleeping with a twist of anxiety in my stomach, I pulled myself from bed around 2 a.m., exercised the miserable thing and managed to keep it alive until morning. Thankfully, after several more stress-filled days and nights, she lost it and it disappeared forever. Today, online, you can read a CNN story about a Tamagotchi cemetery in the UK; and find references to virtual resting places for dead virtual pets. And you can check out newer pet versions — they’re even more complicated with a Face Morph component, and the opportunity to teach six of them how to dance and sing together! What I haven’t found, but I think is a stellar idea, is an online support group for virtual grandparents. ●

VICTORIA NEWS - Friday, September 20, 2013

Victoria Family Choices grow for women with childbirth continued from 11 fundamental shifts in thinking about how women and their partners approach childbirth. Laura Warren, a childbirth educator and a doula who runs prenatal classes at Mothering Touch, reenforces the idea that women have choices – midwife or doctor; home birth or hospital birth; options around drugs during labour; conditions of the delivery room or even the operating theatre in cases of Caesarian birth. “Now it’s all about teaching women what their bodies are capable of doing and that (childbirth) is a natural process, rather than a medical procedure,” Warren says. “I want to make sure women come out, not fearless, but with a lot less fear.” Warren estimates 20 per cent of pregnant couples take prenatal classes, which unpacks the process of labour, techniques to manage pain, and dispels pregnancy myths cemented into society. And the myths are rife. A book recently profiled in Maclean’s magazine, Expecting Better: How to Fight the Pregnancy Establishment with Facts, argues that there is little credible evidence that moderate amounts of alcohol, caffeine, raw fish and many other pregnancy no-nos can harm the baby in utero. “There is a lot of mixed information out there. One book to the next had totally different advice,” says Sibbett, a case worker for Bridges for Women Society. “It’s wonderful to clarify information and prenatal class makes

(giving birth) seem more possible, to have it laid out clearly with options for pain relief. It makes it more real and imaginable.” Warren said when she had her first child in 1985, prenatal class focused more on breathing techniques and less on practical knowledge. “I came out knowing nothing about childbirth,” she laughed. “My labour was unlike anything I had learned. “I found I was scared. I had very good doctor, but I remember going into labour very fearful. Prenatal instruction has come a long way in my experience.” Key differences for hospital births in recent decades is that newborns are given directly to their mom for skin to skin contact, to help regulate the newborn’s body temperature and promote bonding. Long gone are nursery wards. Breastfeeding, almost abandoned in North America 50 years ago for formula, made a resurgence under doctors like Jack Newman. Although breastfeeding in public can stir controversy and debate continues on what pregnant women can and can’t consume, childbirth is starting to find an equilibrium between nature and modern medicine. “I can’t imagine not having witnessed the delivery, holding the baby and keeping here there,” Warren says. “I can’t imagine the days when you delivered and weren’t clear headed and the baby was taken away to the nursery.” ● editor@saanichnews.com

Q&A

Kristy Taylor loves living in the beautiful city of Victoria raising her two great kids Toven, 8, and Ceyla, 6. She and her husband, Ryan Taylor own Caffe Fantastico, a local coffee roastery with three locations in Victoria. She volunteers on the Quadra Village Day committee and was the vice-president of the George Jay elementary PAC last year. “I believe strongly in being an active member in my community and feel that it is important to model this for my children,” she says.

Q A

How do you find time for “you,” in addition to your role as “mom”? I have not exactly mastered finding time for myself in my life, but I like to find time to enjoy moments – things like enjoying time watering my garden while my children are happy playing outside or just enjoying cleaning up around the house while my kids are reading or drawing. I like to do yoga after my kids are in bed. I really try to go out with my close friends for a wine and popcorn night at Tre Fantastico at least once a month and I have a great group of moms that I get together with once a month for a documentary night. What are you reading right now? What do you read with (your son/ daughter/kids)? I love reading and so do my kids. I am reading The Flood by Margaret Atwood and Dear Life by Alice Munrow. My husband and son are reading A Wrinkle in Time right now and I am reading a lot of Winnie the Witch, Berenstein Bears, and Skippy Jon Jones with my daughter. We are enjoying the summer reading program at the library.

Q A

What is your family’s favourite activity to share together? One of our favorite things to do is spend time at our cabin in Port Renfrew. We love to have campfires, hike down to botanical beach for picnics and enjoy time in the hammocks. When we are in the city on the weekends we love to go for long bike rides on the Galloping Goose or Lochside trails. Last year we biked to the ferry and biked to the waterslides in Tsawwassen which was a super fun adventure.

Q A

The part of your day you most look forward to? When school is in, I absolutely love picking my kids up at school, hearing about all their fun times during the day, hanging out at the playground and getting to know their friends. It is also a great time to talk and get to know other parents and teachers. ●

FILM LIstINgs OPENINg

★★★★★ WiZard oF oZ, 3d -(SilverCity) Dorothy and her ruby slippers are back, as one of the most magical movies of all times gets a rerelease in 3D! priSonerS -(Empire 6/SilverCity/ Empire Uni 4) Quebec director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies) has been getting through-the-roof praise for this thriller about two kidnapped girls and the dad who will do anything to get them back. The superb cast includes Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, and Melissa Leo. SalinGer -(Odeon) J.D. Salinger, the reclusive literary icon who gave us Catcher in the Rye, surrenders a few of his secrets in this intriguing biopic and memoir with contributions from such cinematic luminaries as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Edward Norton, John Cusack, Tom Wolfe, and Gore Vidal. the art oF the Steal -(Empire Uni 4) Kurt Russell plays a third-tier motorcycle daredevil and part-time thief who comes up with the idea to steal one of the most valuable books in the world. With Jay Baruchel, Terence Stamp, and Matt Dillon. Battle oF the year -(SilverCity) Here comes another of those flashy “dance off” movies, this one featuring dance teams from around the world. ★★★ you’re neXt -(Roxy, 7 pm) Gore fans should definitely check out this clever and darkly funny home-invasion splatterfest about a gang of maniacs that attacks a family . . . only to discover that someone in the house is even better at killing than they are. ★★★ 2 GunS -(Caprice) Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg play rival Drug Enforcement agents who think they are investigating each

other but have actually been set up by the mob . . . and now have to shoot their way out of a world of trouble. Lots of fun!

cONtINuINg

20 Feet From Stardom -(Odeon) The lives of talented but nearly anonymous back-up singers in some of the biggest bands in the world are explored in a marvellous documentary that includes archival footage and interviews. Featuring Darlene Love, Merry Clayton ... and slightly more famous performers like David Bowie, Sheryl Crow, Mick Jagger, and Ray Charles. Anyone who enjoys Motown and R&B will love this ravishing showcase of fullthrottle singing. ★★★★ Blue JaSmine -(Odeon) Cate Blanchett is headed for an Oscar nomination for her role as an emotionally fragile woman struggling to recover after her life as a glamorous socialite implodes. Complete with a great cast, this is one of Woody Allen’s best films. Ever. chennai eXpreSS -(Empire 6) South India is the setting for this exuberant, Bollywood-style actioncomedy starring Shah Rukh Khan. ★★½ cloSed circuit - (Empire 6) Eric Bana stars in a timely albeit disappointingly tepid British political thriller about a lawyer asked to represent a man accused of a terrorist bombing. When he looks a little too deeply into the case, Britain’s security apparatus starts to take a threatening interest in his activities. the croodS - (Caprice) A prehistoric family taking an unexpected “road trip” into a magical land is the plot of this whimsical animated charmer (which has been getting great reviews). With the vocal talents of Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, and Ryan Reynolds. ★★½ deSpicaBle me 2 (Westshore) The 2010 original, about a loathsome criminal mastermind who was reformed by the love of three young orphan girls, was a goofy delight. The sequel, although still clever, is much more scattershot, with an unimaginative plot and unwelcome dashes of mean spiritedness. Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, and Russell Brand supply the voices. ★★½ elySium -(SilverCity) Matt Damon and Jodie Foster star in a futuristic sci-fi thriller where the Earth has become a polluted ghetto and the lucky few get to live in luxury on a floating space station orbiting languidly above. Well, that’s about to change. It’s hard to argue with the politics, but this new film by the writer-director of District 9 is too heavy-handed and cliched to take seriously. the Family -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Westshore/Empire Uni 4) Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer star in a lame and mostly unfunny black comedy about a mob guy who goes into Witness Protection and gets himself and his family relocated to a small town in France. Pfeiffer is pretty good, but overall this is a wreck. Fruitvale Station -(Odeon) There is lots of buzz around this truthbased reenactment of the turbulent last day of a young black man in 2008. inSidiouS: chapter 2 -(Empire 6/SilverCity/Westshore) The poor old Lambert family once again finds themselves doing battle with evil entities from the darkest corners of the spirit world in this nightmarish but rather jumbled sequel. With Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, and Barbara Hershey. kick-aSS 2 -(Caprice) Expect more hard-edged laughs and jokey violence in this sequel to the big hit about a teenage girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) who was trained as a vigilante by her father. The costars include Jim Carrey, Morris Chestnut, and John Leguizamo. lee danielS’ the Butler -(Odeon/Empire Uni 4) Forest Whitaker heads up an amazing cast in a drama about a black butler at the White House whose long tenure there overlapped with many powerful domestic and international political events. Costarring Vanessa Redgrave, Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo, Terrence Howard, James Marsden, Jane Fonda and Alan Rickman. ★★½ the heat -(Caprice) In this raucous and sometimes hit-and-miss comedy from Paul Feig (Knocked Up), Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) play odd-

couple cops who will have to learn to work together if they are to stand a chance of taking down the drug lord who’s their assigned target. ★★ the lone ranGer -(Caprice) More proves to be less, as the classic western TV show from the 1950s that featured a masked lawman and his Native American sidekick gets a predictably bombastic treatment from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. monSterS univerSity -(Caprice) In this prequel to the 2001 animated smash about fuzzy plush-toy monsters, we go back to the early days when Sully (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) met at university. the mortal inStrumentS: city oF BoneS -(Westshore/ SilverCity) Only the bones were left after the critics universally savaged this derivative, overwrought tale of a young woman who discovers that she has unusual powers as she gets drawn into a battle involving a band of angel-like creatures struggling to squash a demonic threat to the entire world. ★★★ thiS iS the end -(Empire 6) In this truly wacked comedy, stars such as Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and Jonah Hill play themselves as they party at James Franco’s house -- only to find themselves confronting a terrifying, demon-filled apocalypse. Although a bit oversold and rather slapdash, this is very funny (and very rude). planeS -(Empire 6/SilverCity/ Westshore) The same people who made Cars have taken to the skies with a similar family-friendly animated tale about a crop-dusting plane with dreams of winning a famous aerial race. ★★½ red 2 -(Caprice) Newcomer Anthony Hopkins joins Helen Mirren, John Malkovich, Bruce Willis, and Mary-Louise Parker as they reprise their roles as retired CIA “black ops” agents marked for death by their own agency. Although not as good as the 2010 original, this is entertaining enough, mostly due to the sly dialogue and killer performances. SmurFS 2 -(SilverCity/Westshore) The blue munchkins are back for more pint-sized adventures, this one involving a sorcerer and a diabolical kidnapping. ★★ riddick -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Westshore) Vin Diesel blasts back into outer space for the latest iteration of this gory and terrifying sci-fi series about a fugitive who once again finds himself battling alien predators and bounty hunters who want his head — literally. See review. ★ r.i.p.d. -(Caprice) Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star in a dismal action comedy that is nothing more than a crass ripoff of Men In Black. Bridges, who plays an “undead cop” who patrols the Earth looking for weird monsters to exterminate, should probably return the Oscar he received for Crazy Heart. turBo -(Caprice) The latest from Dreamworks Animation is a family comedy about an ordinary garden snail who acquires magic powers – and the chance to achieve his dream of winning the Indy 500. With the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Maya Rudolph, and Samuel L. Jackson. ★★½ the World’S end -(Odeon/SilverCity/Westshore) In a disappointing but occasionally funny follow-up from the makers of Shaun of the Dead, five old friends reunite for a pub crawl only to find themselves in a droll sci-fi action-adventure of epic proportions. Starring Simon Pegg. ★★½ We’re the millerS -(Westshore/SilverCity) Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston star in a crass comedy about a longtime pot dealer who hires a stripper and two feral teens to pretend to be his middle class family as cover for when he smuggles a massive load of weed across the border from Mexico to the States. Intermittently quite funny, this is a case of talented performers struggling with a second-rate script. ★★★ World War Z -(Roxy,8:45pm) Countries topple and armies shatter in the face of a zombie pandemic, as a shaggy-haired Brad Pitt tries to save the world. This is an intense and intelligent movie that uses zombies to embody the more plausible horror of a SARS-like threat to the planet. more online at mondaymaG.com/ calendar

Riddick rampage

C

alifornia-born writer-director David Twohy caused a bit of a splash 20 years ago with his script for The Fugitive, but really made a name in 2000 when he wrote and directed Pitch Black. This aptly named and truly scary scihorror outing introduced the galaxy to Riddick (gravel-voiced Vin Diesel), a lethal fugitive with glow-in-the-dark eyes and shockingly brutal survival skills. The movie itself also proved to be a survivor: the threequel has just landed in the cineplex under the reductive name of Riddick. Left for dead on a hostile planet, Riddick fights off all sorts of nasty critters till he makes it to an abandoned security station where he punches the alarm button, thus activating a bioscan that he knows will identify him as a fugitive. The plan is to steal the spaceship of any bounty hunters who arrive to capture him. Things get tricky when two rival squads appear: one leader is a blustering goof who literally wants to bring home Riddick’s head in a glass box; the other guy, more disciplined, is intent on taking him

alive. (Could there be a hidden agenda at work?) And so it goes, with lots of macho posturing and man-on-man mayhem – until, that is, hundreds of the planet’s alligator-sized scorpion beasties invite themselves to a tasty human banquet. Although not the strongest entry in the series, Riddick mostly rises above its low-budget look and sometimes-silly special effects. Diesel remains a compelling screen presence, and has a lot of fun interacting with the movie’s lone female, a babe of a bounty hunter who “isn’t into guys” – a point she makes with amusing force on a couple of occasions. For genre fans, this is a decent enough time-waster.

Goodnight Desdemona

A

nn-Marie MacDonald’s award-winning comedy, Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is coming to the Belfry Theatre, and it promises to be a crowd-pleaser. The multitalented actor, playwright, author and broadcaster is best known for her international best-selling novels Fall On Your Knees and The Way The Crow Flies and as host of CBC’s Doc Zone. And Goodnight is no exception to MacDonald’s storytelling talent. The play follows lovelorn academic Constance Ledbelly, who in her obsession with her thesis is magically transported into the middle of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet. In her quest to earn the respect of her double-crossing mentor, Prof. Claude Night, Ledbelly jumps through time and space and soon discovers the characters of Romeo, Juliet, Othello, Iago and Desdemona aren’t the people she imagined them to be.

The play runs Sept. 17 to Oct. 20 and stars Daniela Vlaskalic (The Drowning Girls), Michael Dufays, Nicola Elbro, Pippa Mackie and Jameson Matthew Parker, who wowed the Belfry audience last year in his role as Mark Rothko’s assistant in Red. The Belfry is teaming up with several community partners to promote the play, including an offstage Shakespeare performance (Sept. 21) and casual lunches with Goodnight performers (Sept. 24, 27, Oct. 1 and 4) at the Greater Victoria Public Library, central branch. The Belfry will also stay open for post-play cocktails and mingling on designated nights (Sept. 24 to 28, Oct. 8 to 12), and offer a Q&A with the actors (Sept. 26). See the full event listings at belfry.bc.ca. Tickets for Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) are $25 to $40 (plus GST) and available by calling 250-385-6815 or online at tickets.belfry.bc.ca. dpalmer@vicnews.com

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!

We’ll play them (at UVic on Sept. 28 and 29) without most of their starters. Maybe we beat them and get ahead of them in the standings, but they’ll be a different team come CIS nationals, when they get their starters back,” Beecroft said. “We’ll give it our best shot.” Making the CIS nationals requires finishing first or second in the three-team Canada West conference. If not, the Vikes have an automatic berth as the hosts. “It’s what we’re working for,” Kirby said. “We don’t want to rely on the host spot. In 2009 we were a high-calibre team and still had to work hard to earn the spot. And for me, I want to earn my way in for my final year.”

Mack goes pro with Ospreys News staff

Get your wallet out if you want to watch Phil Mack during his upcoming stint playing scrum half for the Ospreys. Mack signed a short-term, four-week contract with the Ospreys of Swansea (Wales) earlier this week after a summer of tremendous success playing scrum half for Canada in the Pacific Nations Cup and RWC qualifying series versus the U.S.A. The Ospreys, of the RaboDirect Pro 12, one of the three elite pro leagues in Europe, are shown here on Sportsnet World at a

It means time off from the Vikes, as the Oak Bay High grad and former James Bay Athletic Association joins a short list of about a dozen Canadians playing rugby for money. “This is the first time I have been looked at or been in search of a professional job,” Mack said from Wales. “I’m extremely excited that it turned out to be the Ospreys given the caliber of play. It is a proud moment and I’m going to work hard and just try and contribute as best I can.”

Pan Am Cup Vikes alumnae Danielle Hennig, Kaitlyn Williams and Thea Culley, and Oak Bay’s Maddie Secco (Stanford), are on Team Canada at the Pan American Cup in Mendoza, Argentina, Sept. 21-28.

Lak Siddartha can finally compete in front of friends and family. The longtime Victoria wrestler has helped a pair of up-Island promoters launch Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling, which debuts in Victoria at the Velox Rugby Club on Saturday (Sept. 21). The first match is 7:30 p.m. “I’m so excited, I’ve been waiting to wrestle on the Island and in Victoria for years,” Siddartha said. “We’re looking to make some interesting storylines so fans will want to come and see our product.” Siddartha will face Scotty Mac out of Surrey, one of the two main events. The other main event sees current V.I. champion B.J. Laredo of Nanaimo against Eddy Osbourne of Campbell River. “We just want to bring wrestling back here like it used to be,” said co-promoter Brent Laplante (B.J. Laredo). “The idea is to stick to four main towns, Victoria, Port Alberni, Duncan and Nanaimo, with each town getting a show every two months.” Dates are still being settled on for the next show at Velox in midNovember. The Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling promotion used to hold shows in Victoria but there has been little to none in recent years.

Phil Mack is going pro with the Ospreys of Swansea, Wales. Rugby fans will know the Ospreys as the home of legendary winger Shane Williams, who Mack, 5-foot-8, has looked up to as a role model.

Lak Siddartha Siddartha ran his own program four years ago and was part of the last pro wrestling show in Victoria, a Canadian National Wrestling Alliance event at Langford’s Luxton Hall in April 2012. “I have four shows this month and more in October, including Halloween Hell, one of the bigger draws of the year in Surrey, so it’s nice to have shows to keep me here on the Island,” Siddartha said. Saturday’s card will feature Victoria’s Pete Powers vs. Tony Baroni and a women’s match between Riea Von Slasher and Bambi Hall, with Island and mainland wrestlers Cremator Von Slasher, Ravenous Randy Myers, Moondog Manson, Krofton and more. Tickets are $15 at the door, $12 in advance, or $10 for a group of four or more, and are available by phone or at Dragon Impact (764-B Yates St.), or by calling Brent Laplante at 250619-2216. For more info visit VIprowrestling.com or visit the event’s site on Facebook. sports@vicnews.com

“I have always liked to watch Shane Williams play given the fact he was an undersized player but played above his size. A definite player that inspired me.” Already in the Ospreys dressing room are Canadians Jeff Hassler and Tyler Ardron. Mack’s former teammates are still avaible to watch live for $5 to $7 locally in Barnard Cup Island rugby union play. The UVic Vikes visit the Castaway Wanderers at Windsor Park on Saturday (Sept. 21), first division at 1 p.m. and premiers at 2:45 p.m. James Bay AA hosts the Velox Valhallians at MacDonald Park, first division at 1 p.m. and premiers at 2:45 p.m. The Velox Valkyries host Cowichan in senior women’s play, 11:30 a.m. at Velox field on Saturday while the Vikes women host Lethbridge tonight at 7 p.m. on Wallace Field.

Two weeks ago Quinn Van Gylswyk kicked a 23-yard field goal in overtime to lift the UBC Thunderbirds to victory. It was a clutch win, as Van Gylswyk kicked a 30-yard field goal with 0.6 seconds left to send the game into overtime. And it was the biggest moment of the season so far for Van Gylswyk, a former Westshore Rebels player and Spectrum Community school grad, who capped the T-Birds rally from a 27-point deficit to defeat the Alberta Golden Bears 39-36 in Edmonton. Van Gylswyk also contributed in that game with a surprise run, as the 6-foot-5, 200-pound kicker faked a punt and dashed 44 yards. Unfortunately the Thunderbirds have since dropped to 1-2 on the season. On Saturday the T-Birds let a 17-point lead slip away in a 36-32 loss to the Manitoba Bisons. Tomorrow the T-Birds play in Regina (1-2).

Sharpe attributes his succes to spending the summer training with fellow Canadians from the national triathlon team in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. “(Own the Podium) has helped cover my pool fees, coaching fees, travel to Europe and accommodation. They see this as an important investment and they have been amazing with their support,” he said. All other expenses, including

races, are covered by Sharpe. It’s logical, he says, but becomes quite costly. He foresees spending upwards of nine months away for training and racing next year as he moves towards the goal of competing in Rio. Sharpe’s last race of the season is Oct. 13 in San Juan, Puerto Rico, afterwhich it’s his goal to find a financial partner to assist him in his campaign for Rio. “(Frist) I will take a few weeks off to appreciate some of the people and activities I’ve neglected over the past season.”

Tour fundraising a team effort Charla Huber Black Press

Training for the Tour de Rock may be more daunting than the actual tour, but riders Donna Fraser and Mike Oliver are gearing up for the challenge. And both riders are thrilled their spouses are so supportive. Learning to clip into peddles on a bicycle was the first skill novice rider Donna Fraser learned for the 2013 Tour de Rock. “I’d never clipped into peddles before, it took a tumble or two to get it, but I don’t think I will go back now,” she said. The West Shore RCMP auxiliary constable is no stranger to the tour, – her husband, West Shore RCMP Const. Rod Fraser, was a tour rider in 2011. “As an alumni rider I can come out on the training rides,” Rod said. “It’s really neat to see her doing it.” Rod trains with the team whenever he isn’t working. “He’s awesome to have supporting me, especially knowing he’s done it before,” Donna said. “He has helped me tremendously and he’s been an awesome support.” Before being accepted for the Tour team, neither Rod nor Donna were avid cyclists, but the couple has found a passion for cycling and say it’s something they will continue to do together after the Tour. “I know what she’s going through as far as training is going,” Rod said. “Right now they are training her for the physical aspects but nothing can prepare you for the emotional part. For me it was very emotional.”

Tour de Rock team members Sgt. Mike Oliver, military police, and West Shore RCMP auxiliary officer Donna Fraser have found strong fundraising support from their spouses. Arnold Lim/News staff

Meanwhile, Sgt. Mike Oliver is happy to have a stable posting at CFB Esquimalt as a military police officer. A 16-year military veteran who joined the police in 2002, he has spent much of career deployed overseas, including hotspots like Bosnia and Afghanistan. This year he joined the tour as he was fortunate enough to be in the country and was eager to take part. “I’ve spent a lot of my time deployed and I have been helping people abroad,” Oliver said. Oliver’s wife Tracey has been

NEW 2 LEVEL

instrumental in his fundraising. “This has been for her as much of a journey as it’s been for me,” he said. “She’s been on board with every fundraiser. She’s been in the dunk tank and done car washes.” Mike’s fundraisers have been so successful he reached his initial goal of $5,000 months ago. He doubled his goal to $10,000 and just surpassed that one too. Oliver has always led an active lifestyle through running, going to the gym and playing hockey. This is the first time he’s ever spent so much time training on a bike.

“Riding in a group setting isn’t the same as just riding on the road. You really have to pay attention to what you are doing,” he said. The 2013 Tour de Rock team began training in March and has trained hard three days a week working on hills, speed and distance training. Originally from Ottawa, training for the Tour has been a way for Mike to explore Greater Victoria and have a chance to see Vancouver Island tip-to-tip. “I’ve never been past Courtenay,” he said. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Bob and Vicki Elsdon’s restored Sateen Silver, fuelinjected 1962 Corvette has a remarkable history. The car was a recent trophy winner ALYN EDWARDS among dozens of the CLASSIC top restored classic RIDES vehicles in the Pacific Northwest displayed at Vancouver’s Luxury and SuperCar Weekend held on the grounds of VanDusen Botanical Garden. The Elsdon’s Corvette was purchased from the original owner who, on his deathbed, made the new owners promise to restore the car and not modify it. The promise was kept. The car’s history goes back to Winnipeg in the early 1960s when three brothers all bought new Corvettes with the rare high-performance fuel injection option. General Motors had introduced Rochester mechanical fuel injection on their 1957 Chevrolet cars and Corvette models to boost the horsepower of the 283 cubic inch V8

model, flanked by his brothers in their 1961 models. All three cars sported the fuel injection badging on the front fenders indicating they have the very lowproduction, high-performance optional engines under the hood. Gordon became a civil engineer and his brother Churchill ‘Church’ Russell played for the New York Rangers and Vancouver Canucks in the National Hockey League. Gordon’s career took him all over Canada and he faithfully shipped his Corvette to many destinations. When he had mechanical trouble with the Corvette, he disassembled the engine and made plywood boxes, held together with brass screws, for the major mechanical parts. Everything was labeled and stored away as the car languished for 27 years, with just 42,000 miles on it. Retired roof consulting company owner Bob Elsdon had owned a series of desirable Corvettes, including a 1972 LT1 coupe and a multi-award-winning red 1967 roadster with the 427 cubic inch 435 horsepower engine option. He decided he wanted to restore another rare model when he heard about a 1962 Corvette stored for decades at a home in Sidney through an appraiser hired to value the car. The elderly owner was terminally ill and wanted to see his prized Corvette go to a new owner who would look after the car. It was to be his last wish. Bob had a knowledgeable friend look at the car and sent a deposit right away. When Bob and Vicki, along with Corvette restorer Gary Yorke and his wife, Jan, went to pick up the car, Bob was able to chat briefly with Gordon Russell about his car. “He wanted me to promise that I wouldn’t modify his car and that I would restore it,” Bob recalls. Just before leaving, Mr. Russell handed him a photograph taken more than 50 years earlier of him and his brothers with their new Corvette sports cars. “We were there with his wife Barbara as we said goodbye and there wasn’t a dry eye among us,” Vicki Elsdon recalls. Gordon Russell passed away three days later.

Bob brought the car back to his shop and systematically disassembled every piece. He contracted Gary Yorke of Classic and Performance Cars Ltd. to do the expert restoration work on the car. “Gary told me it would take the time that it took and cost what it cost,” Bob recalls. That restoration would take 13 years to complete with the meticulous restoration of every piece of the car. An estimated 2,500 hours of labour went into the restoration with a total cost exceeding $150,000. The car has earned the prestigious top flight status awarded by the National Corvette Restorers Society. “It’s wonderful that Bob had so much to work with, that the original owner kept every nut and bolt,” says NCRS judge Michael Moore, who was involved in its judging and selected the 11 cars to be displayed at VanDusen Gardens. “This near-perfect car was only held back by the lack of not having been painted in original lacquer paint.” Bob and Vicki Elsdon have a stable of rare, show-ready, special-interest cars, including a 1932 Ford roadster, two 1966 Chevelle big block cars, a 1934 Ford Sedan, a 375 horsepower 1990 Corvette ZR1 that Bob bought new, and an all original ‘survivor’ 1966 Corvette with the 427 cubic inch 425 horsepower engine option. “If any of our cars are keepers, this is the one,” Vicki says of their NCRS-quality Sateen Silver 1962 Corvette with factory fuel injection. “I feel that if Gordon Russell is looking down, he’d be happy it turned out like it did.” Several weeks ago, Bob and Vicki Elsdon honoured a promise they made at the time they purchased the car. They took Gordon Russell’s widow Barbara to lunch. That was followed with a ride in the Corvette her husband took delivery of on a cold February day in Winnipeg more than 50 years ago.

Nissan is entering final development of the e-NV200 zero emission compact van, scheduled for launch in 2014.

Nissan E-NV200 zero emission van in final development phase Nissan is in the final development phase of its second mass-production, zero-emission vehicle, the e-NV200 compact van. Electric vehicles are ideal for urban delivery applications, and this vehicle is envisaged for use as a delivery van that offers a breakthrough type of mobility for entrepreneurs, featuring efficiency and green consciousness. The company has been working with several large commercial fleets in global markets since 2011 to understand how the e-NV200 test car performs under real operating conditions. So far the e-NV200 has received positive comments for its quiet, comfortable driving with no emissions and low noise, CO2 reduction and generous carrying capacity. Feedback will help Nissan adapt future battery-powered light commercial vehicles to better fulfill exacting customer requirements. The 100 per cent electric compact van, e-NV200, is scheduled for launch in 2014. As Nissan’s second global electric vehicle, it follows Nissan LEAF, the world’s first affordable 100 per cent EV for the mass market. The model offers all the spaciousness, versatility and practicality of its base vehicle, the multipurpose commercial van NV200. It delivers advanced performance that can only be achieved through the powertrain of the Nissan LEAF. The e-NV200 provides exceptionally smooth acceleration and quietness, driving characteristics that are unique to EVs, while emitting no CO2 emissions at the point of use. e-NV200 displays great potential for businesses, with its advanced telematics system and power-supply function in the cargo compartment. Also, the model’s enviable running cost – a priority for most companies – will be highly attractive when competing in the commercial vehicle marketplace.

Luxury taken to the next level: The new generation Audi A8 Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com

The new generation Audi A8, which makes its debut at next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, combines revisions to its weight-optimized, predominantly aluminum body with a raft of technological advances including new MatrixBeam LED headlights and an upgraded line-up of EU6-compliant engines. The visual appeal, visibility and active safety of the new generation A8 can also now be enhanced by new optional headlights employing MatrixBeam Light Emitting Diode technology which sets new benchmarks. The high-beam function in these unique headlights uses 25 individual LEDs per unit that can be switched on and off or dimmed individually depending on the situation. This enables the headlight system to react extremely precisely to other vehicles while always brightly illuminating the road. When the on-board camera detects

other vehicles ahead, the Audi MatrixBeam LED headlights mask the relevant sections of the high beam by dimming or shutting off individual diodes. Very bright illumination is preserved in the remaining zones. The lighting system in the A8 uses predictive route data from the navigation system with MMI Touch to adjust the distribution of light in response to the current driving situation, and can recognize and act on route data, such as corners and road classifications. The A8 offers a choice of seven gasoline and TDI engines, the majority of which have been revised to improve performance and efficiency. The luxuriously equipped Audi A8 L W12 quattro occupies the top rung in the A8 line-up. The short and lightweight engine with its W layout displaces 6.3-litres and produces 500 hp. The 520 hp S8 fulfills a different brief as the ultimate Audi sports sedan. Its 4.0 TFSI engine blasts it from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds.

The Volvo Concept Coupé combines the design heritage of the P1800 with modern Scandinavian lifestyle and design.

When Vincentric presented its inaugural Best Value in Canada awards last year, Toyota claimed the brand award for passenger cars while also being recognized with best value awards for 10 individual vehicles.

A total of 11 Toyota and Lexus vehicles including Prius (shown) were recognized with individual 2013 Vincentric Best Value in Canada awards.

To determine the 2013 Vincentric Best Value in Canada awards, Vincentric analyzed more than 1,800 vehicle configurations, measuring cost-of-ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost and repairs. Using a statistical model, the company identified Vincentric Best Value in Canada winners by measuring which vehicles had lower

Already a leader in cutting-edge safety technology, Mazda will start trials in October of a world-unique system enabling vehicles and trams to communicate with one another. The company will also begin testing its Mazda6 ASV-5 (Advanced Safety Vehicle) on public roads in Japan. A first of its kind in the world, the system communicates using 700 MHz radio waves, allowing cars and trams to share a variety of data, including the type and location of a vehicle, the direction they’re heading, and braking and turn signal information. The ASV-5 sedan is equipped with autonomous millimetre wave and microwave sensors as well as cameras to monitor its surroundings and keep track

The purpose of the trials is to confirm the communication system’s ability to prevent accidents. They will be conducted on the streets of Hiroshima, where trams carry 150,000 people daily and, as in many European cities, represent a vital public transportation link. Compared with Jetta, the Cruze Diesel offers standard equipment including the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system, larger 17-inch alloy wheels, leather-appointed seating, and a longer five-year 160,000-km powertrain limited warranty.

0.0% Ford gave “breakfast to go” a whole new meaning by wrapping a 2014 Ford Fiesta in bacon to mark International Bacon Day Aug. 31

Ford introduces first bacon-wrapped car, satisfying even the most insatiable appetite METROLAND MEDIA WHEELSTALK.COM

Bacon has been a cornerstone of cuisine since ancient Rome. In recent years the cured meat has transformed from a food to a lifestyle, inspiring everything from medical supplies to plush toys. On Aug. 31, International Bacon Day, Ford savoured the salty sidedish with the introduction of what is believed to be the first bacon-wrapped car – a 2014 Ford Fiesta. Ford is announcing the availability of custom bacon graphics that pork purists can have installed on their new Fiesta. The piece de resistance is the full “Bacon Wrap” – 10 giant strips of delicious bacon rolled around the entire Fiesta for a carb-free ride. While the bacon-wrapped Fiesta has all the looks of indulgence, it’s incredibly lean at the pump – with an EPA-estimated rating of up to (US) 41 mpg on the highway. And unlike bacon grease, nothing gets sizzled away from the Fiesta interior, with technology and features worthy of a blue ribbon at any county fair. The bacon graphics are just a few custom exterior vinyl graphics Fiesta buyers can have installed on their ride to express their personalities. The wraps are produced by Ford Custom Graphics, along with 3M Original Wraps, and are available at www.fordcustomgraphics.com

Infiniti releases first image of sleek, seductive Q30 Concept Metroland Media WheelsTalk.com This is the first photo to be released by Infiniti of its Q30 premium compact concept car.

Infiniti has provided a first look at the Q30 Concept which will have its world premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show as the next step in Infiniti’s foray into new premium segments. The Infiniti Q30 Concept signals the contemporary design vision for a compact Infiniti vehicle which will target a new generation of premium customers. The Q30 Concept

embodies Infiniti’s vision to deliver head-turning design, innovative materials with precise fit and finish and passionate craftsmanship, while provoking a radical shift in the premium compact segment. The shape of the Infiniti Q30 Concept deliberately challenges categorisation – not a coupe, not a hatch and not a crossover but a fusion of the three body styles. It’s designed for younger customers seeking an alternative

to traditional premium compact vehicles and open to convention-challenging approaches. Infiniti is confident this merging of the dynamic design and sportiness of a coupe, the roominess of a hatch and the higher stance of a crossover will resonate with these customers. The Q30 Concept signals the next step in an aggressive strategy to extend the Infiniti brand into new premium segments.

Civic Sedan and Coupe remain only small cars to achieve top IIHS crash ratings Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

The 2013 Honda Civic Sedan and Coupe remain the only small cars to earn the top rating of “good” in the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) stringent small overlap front crash test. The Civic Sedan and Coupe are also the only small cars to earn both the highest possible rating of TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the IIHS and the top Five-Star Overall Vehicle Score in the U.S. NHTSA’s New Car Assessment Program. The Civic Sedan, significantly reengineered for 2013, is equipped with Honda’s next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE™ II) body structure, which plays a critical role in making Civic the first small car to earn a TOP SAFETY PICK+ crash safety rating, and the first

— and to date, only — to earn the highest rating of “good” in the IIHS’ new small overlap front crash test (sometimes called a ‘narrow offset’ test). This aggressive test is designed to simulate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object such as a tree or utility pole at high speed. The reinforced ACE body structure found on the 2013 Civic further enhances the absorption of frontal crash energy through a wider range of these offset and oblique collision scenarios. Additional standard safety equipment on all Civic models include: Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control; an Anti-lock Braking System; side curtain airbags; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; and driver and front passenger side airbags.

Ford S-Max Concept blends crafted design with smart technology Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

New S-MAX Concept reveals Ford’s vision for future sport activity vehicles. The S-MAX Concept builds upon pioneering style of the current model’s “no compromise” ethos with sleek design, detailed craftsmanship, advanced technologies and more flexible interior.

Ford of Europe has revealed the new Ford S-MAX Concept, a sport activity vehicle that takes the style-without-compromise ethos of the popular current S-MAX to new levels with a sharper design, advanced technology and premium craftsmanship.   The new S-MAX Concept employs the latest Ford global design language with a high mounted grille, swept-back headlamps and a unique treatment of the vehicle’s lower fascia incorporating design elements that appear to float within the lower front aperture and above the spoiler. The characteristic S-MAX profile has been honed with the front bonnet sweeping seamlessly into the sharply raked front screen, which in turn flows into the dynamic arc of the roof to create a unique glass graphic. This sleek silhouette surrounds a spacious and versatile interior

that offers anything from four to seven-seat configurations. Further exterior design cues include a feature line running along the flank to create an impression of length and speed, sculptured muscular shoulders and distinctive headlamps featuring Organic LEDs – the latest lighting that offers greater flexibility in terms of positioning and design, fast response and colour range. The S-MAX Concept interior is an expression of cutting-edge design, convenience, connectivity, flexibility and craftsmanship. The front cabin places the focus firmly on the driver. Dynamic shapes and forms combine in a high-set instrument panel that cuts back in the centre console and creates a feeling of space. The door panels are similarly sculptured and an innovative interior roof design maximizes the feeling of spaciousness. High quality materials include an ultra-soft leather wrap for the instrument panel, and leather and carbon fibre detailing for the sculptured seats.

Porsche genetic blueprint for the future: 918 Spyder with high-performance hybrid Metroland Media Carguide Magazine

Debuting at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show, the 918 Spyder is the continuation of the traditional Porsche DNA in a ground breaking sports car. Designed from the start to be a highperformance hybrid, the 918 Spyder boasts an unprecedented combination of performance (offering the 887 hp output of a super sports car)

and the virtually silent, emission-free travel of an electric vehicle. The vehicle is able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and offers an average standard fuel consumption of between 94 mpg and 85 mpg. The 918 Spyder also allows a combustion engine to be combined with an electric motorbased drive to generate new functions that further optimize the dynamic performance.

The much-anticipated Porsche 918 Spyder was shown at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show.
