School district projecting increase in enrolment By Karl yu

THE NEwS BULLETiN

Final student enrolment numbers for the school year have not been released but Nanaimo’s school district is projecting a slight increase. The district is estimat-

ing that there will be about 12,833 students for 201314. “We’re expecting around 7,500 elementary and 5,300 secondary for this school year,” said Nanaimo school district communications director Donna Reimer. Last year, school district

enrolment was at 12,808 for elementary and secondary, not including any alternative educational programs or international students, but it’s too soon to say if numbers actually increased. “It may not be an overall increase, we won’t know

until we finish the final [numbers] and the verification takes awhile while we go back and forth with the Ministry of Education to verify the numbers. Once we get the final numbers, we’ll take a look and see,” Reimer said u See ‘ENROLMENT’ /4

A commissionaire’s too-close-for-comfort brush with a cougar that ultimately ended the animal’s life carries lessons and warnings for the public, says a conservation officer. The incident happened at the Saltair Mill in Ladysmith on Sept. 22 at about 8 a.m. when the watchman spotted the cat eyeing him from some lumber piles in the mill yard about 100 metres away. “It was coming towards him, so he runs to his guard shack,” said Stuart Bates, conservation officer. “He had to cover about 10 metres and when got to the guard shack and closed the door, the cougar was behind him outside the door, which means that cougar covered 100 metres in the time it took him to cover 10 – which is why we tell people, ‘Don’t run.’” Because the cougar stayed near the mill, located on Ludrow Road on the Ladysmith waterfront, following the incident, the time of day it occurred and that the animal had no qualms about chasing a full-grown man, Bates responded to the scene with a houndsman. Within 10 minutes of arriving, the dogs tracked the cougar to an old office building, within 50 metres of the guard shack. “[It was] 10 metres behind that building, it was still sitting there,” Bates said. “A young male about three years old, and yes it was put down unfortunately. When they start showing that kind of behaviour in that kind of location … Transfer Beach is right there if it wants to keep going.” u See ‘COUGAR’ /5

Inbrief Centre targets aboriginal graduation rates

Prorogation happens often The news article Prorogration a normal parliamentary device, says MP, in the News Bulletin’s sept. 19 issue contained incorrect information. Parliament has been prorogued 126 times in its 146-year history. The News Bulletin regrets the error and any confusion it might have caused.

By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

There is a growing gap in aboriginal graduation rates, and it’s up to the community to help fill it, says Nanaimo’s new champion for education. “If a large group of our students – and a growing group – is not having success in education, it impacts all of us,” said Chris Beaton, executive director of the new, not-for-profit Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre. “We can’t get to the stage of being able to call ourselves a successful city if we don’t all move forward together.” The not-for-profit launched in June with aims of raising the bar on aboriginal education. As the fastest growing demographic in Canada, aboriginal youth are anticipated to fill national labour shortages and be major economic contributors, but experts agree education is key. In the Harbour City, aboriginal students are still lagging behind non-aboriginal counterparts. According to the Nanaimo school district, 49.9 per cent of aboriginal students received their Dog-

family activity nights and youth mentorship. The centre will be reaching out to the private sector and other not-for-profits to take part in initiatives that help address education issues. Angie Barnard, co-owner of the Painted Turtle Guesthouse, said she looks forward to seeing the projects the organization takes on. She will be among those lending support. “You achieve much greater results when you work together and I think it’s easy to own this issue because education is really the foundation of the future,” she said.

The centre’s mission kicks off with Aboriginal Family Night on Oct 8, an event where different aboriginal groups can share culture and build community. It also plans to launch the Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative’s accounting mentorship program in Nanaimo, which will give high school students job shadowing opportunities. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo city council votes to reinstall nuclear-free zone signs By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo residents will see the return of signs declaring the city a nuclear weapons free zone. Nanaimo city council unanimously agreed to replace signs designating the city as a nuke-free zone during its committee of the whole meeting Monday. The signs represent Nanaimo’s historic peace movement and are an important statement that the Harbour City continues to support global peace, says Coun. Diane Brennan. The signs were originally installed shortly after city officials passed a bylaw in 1987 that banned the manufacture, transportation and storage of nuclear weapons within city boundaries. The move was in response

to concerns nuclear-capable and nuclear-powered American submarines were coming into Nanoose Bay. The signs disappeared in 2008, prompting activists to call for their return. Nanaimo city staff members were reportedly unaware the signs went missing. ““I think they are still [relevant]. We live in really insecure times right now and very violent times,” said Brennan.”For me, the signs are a reminder as you come and go from Nanaimo that we are a community that stands for peace and that we are aware of our need to push forward a peace agenda locally and worldwide. “[That phrase] think globally, act locally – it’s more of what this is.” Dyane Brown, with the Women’s International League for Peace

This is a council that has supported activities that are concerned with disarmament

and Freedom, advocated for the signs to be returned to the city’s entrances. The group has felt a lot of pride in the city’s status as a nuclear-free zone and wants others to feel the same, she said, adding that the signs are an important part of Nanaimo’s identity.

She said she’s happy but not surprised city officials are taking steps to replace the nuclearweapons free signs. “This is a council that has supported activities that are concerned with disarmament,” Brown said. “[The signs] give a sense of what’s happening in the world and why we still need to be concerned.” The signs were put up at the entrances of the city, including Stewart Avenue, Chase Hill and Woodgrove Mall on the old Island Highway. They first went missing and were reinstalled in 2003. Nanaimo city staff will be approaching the B.C. Ministry of Transportation for permission to reinstall the nuke-free signs. If the bid fails, the signs will be put on city streets.

wood diplomas in 2012 compared to a general graduation rate of 71.6 per cent. In 2011, 52 per cent of aboriginal students completed high school versus 69.6 per cent of students overall. Graduation rates are not improving fast enough, according to Beaton, who calls the problem a local crisis. The new Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre hopes to partner with local community groups this year to apply fresh ideas and solutions to lingering education challenges. It’s goal is to see a 100 per cent grad rate. Solutions found could also be applied to non-aboriginal students struggling in the school system, the organization’s members say. “This is a social issue as much as an economic challenge and [we need to bring] best practices to the table ... in order to affect change because the reality is it’s not changing or changing at the pace anyone is happy with,” Beaton said. Michael Leggett, a member of the centre’s eight-person board, said the organization is still exploring ways to achieve its graduation mission, but among the options is advocacy work on curriculum content that resonates better with First Nations students. It also plans to focus on early childhood education,

Cougar sightings rise sharply

KARL YU/The News BULLeTiN

Juggling in the rain Moumoudou Diallo, a performer with Cirque Jeunesse en Équilibre, was amongst the performers at the Arte de Carnaval on Saturday. Originally scheduled for Diana Krall Plaza, rain forced organizers to move events into the Vancouver Island Conference Centre but Diallo braved the elements to do a little juggling.

u From /1 It’s the second incident in the mid-Island where conservation officers shot a cougar – last month officers killed a cougar in north Nanaimo. They also killed small bear south of the city in the same week. Incidents between cougars and humans are still rare, but the numbers of calls about cougar sightings have risen sharply since the 2010-11 province’s fiscal year (April 1 to March 31) when people reported 640 sitings on Vancouver Island. For 2011-12, complaints leapt to 1,861 and 201213 tallied 1,712 calls. “So far this year we’re at 1,411,” Bates said. “It’s been a very, very, very busy year for cougars for us.” The reason for the sharp rise in numbers is simple, Bates said. Deer populations are rising

down a bear. “With a bear, if you stare him in the eyes, you’re saying, ‘I’m tougher than you,’ and he’s going to prove you wrong,” Bates said. “You stare a cougar in the eyes, it’s your way of saying, ‘I see you and if you attack me I’m going to hurt you.’ Cougars can’t afford to get injured or they won’t hunt, so they can’t risk an injury.”

rapidly in urban and semi-urban areas and more deer draw more cougars following their food source. “Cougar attacks do happen,” Bates said. “They’re more common on Vancouver Island than other places, but they’re still not that common.” The most recent attack in the Island region happened in Cow Bay on

remote Flores Island, about 20 kilometres north of Tofino, Sept. 9 when a woman was attacked. Her husband fought off and ultimately killed the animal with a spear. Vancouver Island has a large cougar population, Bates said, and sub-adult cougars recently separated from their mothers will seek out easy meals

The best way to fend off a cougar is to make yourself look big, stare it in the eyes and back away slowly while talking in a low, clear voice. Conservation officer Stuart Bates recommends saying something to the effect of, “Hey, cougar. Hey cougar,” so everyone in earshot becomes aware of the danger. The method works for cougars. Never try to stare

and are the most common cougars conservation officers deal with. “The best advice I can give people is don’t feed deer and don’t feed racoons in your yard because you will attract cougars,” Bates said. Pets are at risk too. House cats and small dogs should be kept indoors at night. When cougars take down a deer, house cats will be drawn to the smell. A cougar will kill a cat just for showing up at its kill. Bates said people need to be aware cougars are around and to be vigilant and remember two things if they encounter a cat. “Don’t run and don’t scream,” Bates said. “You do one of those two things and you can cause an attack. It’s a predator. If you run from a predator, he assumes you’re edible.”

Cities benefit from having a more diverse range of perspectives and a direct link to young leaders. But advocates warn that in order for the councils to work city leaders must sincerely listen and act on advice from youth. Kluane Buser-Rivet is the coordinator for the City of Victoria Youth Council, which was created in 2005. She said not truly making an effort to value youths’ opinions can hurt the sense of empowerment and ownership councils give its members. The councils need to be created for the right reasons, she said. “Bottom line – young people care about the community and want to make it better and youth councils take that desire and gives them a venue to do that and make a difference,” Buser-Rivet said. Nanaimo city council is expected to consider a youth advisory group on Monday. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Friends support friend’s cancer battle

I

aNNuaL RuN for the Cure takes place this sunday.

By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

When Kelli Jennison laces up for the annual CIBC Run for the Cure, it will be to honour a long-time friend’s battle to beat breast cancer. Jennison and Dawn Sparks have been close friends for nearly four decades. They shared the excitement of childhood birthday parties and Christmas mornings; the experience of getting married and the heartbreak of divorce. When Sparks learned she had breast cancer last spring, Jennison was one of the first people she called to break the news. “The day after she saw her doctor, she called me,” Jennison said, her voice hitching. “It was devastating. It is still hard to talk about. I was concerned … about the unknown.��� Sparks, a mother of three, was diagnosed with cancer in both breasts after she found a lump in a self-exam last spring. She had a double mastectomy and underwent chemotherapy over the summer. Next week, Sparks starts 28 days of radiation treatment. Jennison and a group of

Runners take off from Beban Park as part of last year’s Run for the Cure, which raises money for breast cancer research and awareness. Last year’s run raised $180,000.

mutual high school friends have been rallying together to help Sparks with the battle, offering rides, cleaning her house and filling her freezer with food. On Sunday, they will take their support one step further by participating in CIBC’s Run for the Cure. More than 60 co-workers, friends and family have been brought together under the

banner, Dawn’s Divas. It’s the largest group of its kind registered for the annual event. “[This is] to honour her and show her how much support she has with friends and family. That she is not alone,” Jennison said. “[But] it is also to support other women and bring awareness … to make sure they are doing their selfexams and getting a mammogram.”

For Jennison, it’s also a testimony to the strength of friendship. “She was there on my wedding day as my maid of honour and was there for me when it ended – one of the hardest times in my life. [She] never judged,” Jennison said. “Now I want to be there for her.” The 22nd annual CIBC Run for the Cure launches at Beban Park Oct. 6 to raise money for breast cancer awareness and treatment. According to the Breast Cancer Foundation, cancer continues to be the single-highest cause of death among Canadian women – affecting one in nine over their lifetime. Nanaimo run director Shelley McKenna said the local event is touching and fun – not only raising money to help find a cure, but celebrating survival and friendship. Last year more than 1,000 people took part in the run, raising $180,379. Registration for the event starts at 8:30 a.m. at Beban Park while the run/walk kicks off at 10 a.m. There will be speeches, a clown for children and a bagpipe-led survivors’ parade. Organizers continue to look for volunteers, who can register online at www.runfor thecure.com. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Library balances books as part of 10-year plan The board of Vancouver Island Regional Library adopted a balanced operating budget of $23,038,586 for 2014, allowing for higher technology, facility and maintenance costs. Municipal and rural levies will contribute $18,678,364 to the library budget, which represents an increase of 6.94 per cent, or an average per capita amount of $2.89, according to a

press release from the library. The increase in costs drives the Vancouver Island Regional Library’s strategic 10-year plan to financial sustainability and service level expectations to the 38 communities it serves. In June of 2010, the board approved a 10-year plan to deal with more than $2.4 million in deferred maintenance issues at branch libraries.Now in the fourth year of

that plan, this year’s budget both balances the redevelopment and maintenance of these branch facilities while investing in technology services that will offset the demands of bricks and mortar library locations in the future. “We are balancing redevelopment and maintenance of facilities by taking advantage of new technologies. We are staying the course towards achieving sustain-

ability by utilizing moderate budget increases to support long term plans,” said Adrian Maas, director of finance, Vancouver Island Regional Library. The remainder of the budgeted revenues come from overdue and other fees, and investment income. “We’re driven to provide the public with services that meets their expectations while operating within

a balanced budget and we believe that we’ve accomplished this,” said board chairman Bruce Jolliffe. Vancouver Island Regional Library is the fourth largest library system in British Columbia, serving more than 430,000 people on Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and Bella Coola through 38 branch libraries, a virtual branch, and a booksby-mail service.

Learning fund money goes into classrooms By KarL yu The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo school district approved a spending plan at last week’s regular board meeting which will allocate close to $1.5 million from the provincial government. The Learning Improvement Fund is part of the Education Improvement Act and the school district will be using the $1.5 million to advance its response to invervention strategy, which it says ensures that all students are supported by appropriate interventions when there is a perceived risk of failure.

She said the $334,126 reserve fund allocation has to be used for purposes related to the fund. “One of the purposes of the Learning Improvement Fund is to address class composition issues and so we keep the reserve fund to use during the year as situations arise that we may need to address,” Reimer said.

EDITORIAL

Youth council worth pursuing Nanaimo has some great examples of youths doing amazing things. Students helping the homeless, setting world hockey records or simply furthering their education to one day make a significant medical breakthrough. So it’s surprising that only now is the City of Nanaimo looking to tap into that resource through a youth council. Coun. George Anderson is spearheading the inititative that would see youths in Nanaimo sit on a council that would look at issues facing the community and provide feedback from their unique perspectives. Youth councils proved successful in other municipalities, including Saanich and Victoria, particularly when the actual elected council listened to initiatives and ideas put forth, empowering the youths to continue developing their ideas. But a few caveats are needed to make a youth council successful and not simply a forum to plan the next skateboard park fundraiser. Youths need guidance on city hall’s expectations and goals of the council, and a strong mandate to focus their efforts on issues affecting the community. Dozens of students in Nanaimo school district want to help their community grow and prosper, but many lack the venue to do so. A youth council might just provide that by giving them a platform to speak and an opportunity to see their efforts put into action. They have the ear of their peers and can reach a significant pool of expertise, ideas and labour to help the community develop economically and socially. And hopefully youth councillors would spur not only their peers, but also their parents – Nanaimo has a lack of engagement among a significant portion of its adult population as well. Seeing children setting a positive civic example could encourage more adults to participate in local government.

The debate pitted hobby

farmers against professionals. Peace region grain farmers said such a ban would put them out of business. Others pointed out that the province has no jurisdiction and that scientific decisions shouldn’t be influenced by emotion. The session ended with a classic pseudo-scientific claim. A woman who used to have a couple of bee boxes said someone’s bees died and there was a Roundup-ready canola field next door. Case closed. The misguided “G.E.-free B.C.” motion was supported by a narrow majority. As it turns out, there are agricultural pesticides that may be harmful to bees. The David Suzuki Foundation is part of an effort to get one of them banned in Canada. The problem is, it’s not Roundup, and it’s got nothing to do with genetic engineering. They’re called “neonicotinoids,” because they’re similar to nicotine. Old sheep farmers may recall using a crude version: tobacco soaked in water to kill insects on sheep. It’s ironic that as the information age accelerates, our society, overwhelmed by conflicting messages, slips back toward superstition. u Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Cedar advocates aren’t wavering To the Editor,

I attended the school board meeting last week at Nanaimo District Secondary School and was very impressed by the two presenters from Save Cedar Schools. Their diligence in getting the information correct and the unwavering devotion to advocating for their children is admirable. It is inconceivable that Nanaimo school district is making an effort to sell their community on the idea that the facilities plan is really in their best interests. Why would anyone believe this? Ripping the heart out of the community by having all of the high school youth bused elsewhere and pushing all of the elementary kids into one school is a poor plan. It is neither fiscally nor morally defensible. Give these parents some credit for knowing what makes sense for their families.

Jeff Solomon Nanaimo

Let’s not get duped by incinerator proposal To the Editor,

The idea to construct an incinerator at Duke Point for Vancouver’s garbage is currently entertained by city hall and the Regional District of Nanaimo. As with all controversial projects, the ‘jobs’ promise is used as persuasive argument. Strict observance of provincial, federal and what have you, standards is the next promise. However, whenever a train derails, oil tanker sinks, nuclear plants melts down or oil spills over lakes and rivers, people find that they were duped by corporations, politicians and bureaucrats. This incinerator haze seems a doubtful proposition and therefore, when in doubt, say no.

City isn’t wheelchair friendly To the Editor,

Re: What’s so great about downtown?, Looking Good Nanaimo, Sept. 24. I do not agree Nanaimo’s downtown welcomes all. It does not welcome disabled people in wheelchairs. As I drove around in my electric wheelchair in the Old City Quarter at a Thanksgiving event, I found most of the shops had steps or small doorways. I also tried to enter a deli and the door weighed a ton and inside was not accessible. I travel around the U.K. and they are trying their hardest to accommodate us all. In this day when everywhere is supposed to provide access for all equally I am quite upset at Nanaimo city council for not addressing this issue. I guess Nanaimo does not want disabled tourists either, as they advertise friendly downtown Nanaimo, come one and all.

Chainsaws make community a little less beautiful To the Editor,

Re: Hydro cleans up after tree-fall blunder, Sept. 24. We had a similar experience with B.C. Hydro ‘trimming.’ Our lovely flowering tree that stood over 10 feet tall (but barely touched the lines) was felled to a pitiful stump. Sadly, we have no recourse since technically it was growing a little outside our property line. It took 10 years to grow, 30 seconds to cut down. I’m not disputing the legality of this, just the compassion. B.C. Hydro is threatening to

increase their bills 26.5 per cent. It’s these type of monopolies that leave me feeling – dare I say it – powerless. And used. And angry. A step B.C. Hydro could take that might mollify me a bit would be to promptly discontinue using the tree butchers they hired from an out-of-town company and, next year, hire a local company that might care a bit more about the beauty of its community.

B.C. Hydro trying to intimidate smart meter holdouts To the Editor,

Nanaimo News Bulletin 9

Education strengthens middle class To the Editor,

B.C. Hydro is being very aggressive in its endeavour to overcome the will of the people to hold back on the smart meter issue. B.C. Hydro has sent out letters to all the smart meter holdouts, stating that they will be charging $35 a month extra

on your bill as of January 2014 if you keep your old meter. And then they state that the British Columbia Utilities Commission will be reviewing the costs. Well, how can they tell you that they are going to charge you $35 a month if the BCUC has not reviewed this issue?

Does that mean that Hydro has the provincial government and the BCUC in its back pocket? Obviously they are expecting a decision on their behalf, and are jumping the gun by sending out intimidating letters.

MOVIE LISTING AD

The Canadian promise, that if you get educated and work hard, you can guarantee a better life for yourself and for your kids, is being seriously questioned. Middle-class incomes have stalled for a generation, leaving many Canadians feeling anxious about whether we can afford the education our kids will need and whether we can afford to upgrade our own skills and knowledge to keep pace in an economy where 7 of 10 jobs will require a diploma, degree or skilled trade. While the provinces have constitutional responsibility for education, there is a long history of federal efforts to supplement provincial policies. The federal government should support the efforts of individual Canadians to go to university, college or trade school, as well as to continue their education throughout their lives. Yet the education policies of the Conservative government have been failures. They have ignored a serious problem with low graduation rates for apprentices, which deprive the economy of highly skilled people. They have done almost nothing to help offset the growing costs of education, letting student debt skyrocket under their watch. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has argued that Canada needs a new national focus on education, which would build Canada’s competitive advantage around a highly skilled, creative and innovative workforce, because Canadians’ ingenuity and work ethic represent the best investment we can make in an era when change is the only constant.

Ladysmith RCMP press release. Mounties are continuing to investigate the crash with the assistance of a traffic analyst and recon-

The Nanaimo Clippers junior A hockey team has a few goals in mind – one of them is to help fill tummies. T h e c i t y ’s B . C . Hockey League club is participating in the league’s Five Hole for Food Challenge this season. Each of the province’s 16 junior A hockey communities is designating one home game for the initiative and asking fans to donate as many non-perishable food items as they can to the cause. As it happens, the Clippers are the first team to host their challenge night this Friday (Oct. 4) when the Clips take on the Cowichan Valley Capitals at Frank Crane Arena. “We are extremely excited to kick off the BCHL’s food bank challenge this Friday at Frank Crane,” said Jen Kennedy, Clippers marketing director, in a press release. “This is our favorite type of competition, when it is our community that wins.” Another aspect of the Five Hole for Food Bank Challenge is a jersey bet. Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan and his fellow mayors agreed that the each of the 15 runners-up will wear the victorious community’s hockey jersey at a future council meeting. “Our teams receive great support from their respective communities,” said John Grisdale, BCHL commissioner. “Some genuine rivalries exist between towns because of that.” Each community’s food donations will benefit its local food bank; the Clippers will drop off the groceries at Loaves and Fishes. The Clippers and Capitals face off at 7 p.m. Friday at Frank Crane Arena. The team has another home game Saturday against the West Kelowna Warriors, also at 7 p.m. Fans who buy a ticket to Friday’s game get a ticket for the next night’s tilt at half price.

The title, if not the lyrics, to the Rolling Stones song Gimme Shelter, could apply to Island Roots Market Co-operataive. The Nanaimobased farmers market co-operative was founded in July 2012, has attracted upwards of 160 members and even has a tentative opening date set for spring 2014, but is still looking for a place to set up shop. The concept is to have a year-round, indoor market for local farmers and artisans. “We’re again without a home,” said Larry Whaley, market co-founder. “We’ve thought we had a home twice, but it’s looking like neither one is going to work out.” The first was in the old Medical Arts Building at 350 Albert St. “That didn’t work because the owners decided they would rather tear it down and build a parking lot,” Whaley said. Heavy equipment was on site demolishing the building last month. Hopes have been

Organizers behind Island Roots Market hoped they’d found a home for the year-round indoor farmers’ market only to run into zoning issues and seismic stability with a building on Milton Street.

dashed again, at least temporarily, for moving into another location at the old Sun Glo Lumber building at 540 Milton St. The plan there was to set up the market in what was once a covered lumber warehouse area at the back of the main building, but the city wants seismic upgrades made to the structure before it can be re-designated for retail use. “At this stage we don’t know how much that might cost or even what needs to be done,” Whaley said. Tthe spot would be great for a market, he said, if the co-operative can get in there. “We want the public to be safe, so we’re not annoyed or anything

at the city,” Whaley said. “It’s just difficult because it keeps putting on delays and adding costs and at this stage we don’t know what the costs might be and whether it’s affordable or not.” Paul Manhas, the building’s owner, said he brought in Herold Engineering and architect Ian Niamath to survey the structure. Manhas said the warehouse was used as a retail space for many years, but it was never officially re-designated as such and consequently there are no records with the city stating it was ever anything other than warehouse space. “We’re trying to get

an estimate what it would cost to comply,” Manhas said. For the time being, at least, all plans are on hold until the engineering and architectural cost estimates come in. “If that is something between us – we and the owner – can manage, we will be going there,” Whaley said. “If not, we’ll be in search

of another place.” Whaley said organizers have not pushed hard to increase membership because of uncertainty about where and when the market will open, but once it finds a home he expect membership to increase dramatically. “So, that’s where it sits,” Whaley said. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Manson to pursue education at the then Malaspina College. It was the elders from Snuneymeuxw who urged her to use her skills and compassion to train as a ‘pre-elder’, rather than continuing to train and work directly in health care. “They said, ‘We need you here, to continue to learn the language, the land, the history, and be our legs and our eyes when we can no longer do so,” Manson says. Through her work, Manson met former VIU elder-in-residence Ellen White. “She was the one who continued my training when the elders were no more,” she said. “Auntie Ellen was the first elder-inresidence at VIU, and she is my mentor and advisor.” Today, with a full and busy life including three children, eight grandchildren, and one great grandchild, Manson can be found welcoming faculty to a regular gathering, counselling a student at Shq’apthut, or working with new students. She shares her wisdom where it’s required, and “if I can’t offer it, I will bring in other traditional knowledge keepers.” editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Customer finds meter fee too high By Karl yu The News BulleTiN

A Nanaimo man is worried B.C. Hydro’s proposed $35 monthly fee to keep his analog meter will increase his bill 59 per cent. S.I. Petersen said he estimated the 59-per cent increase was by taking the amount he has paid over the last 12 months – usage fees, hydro etc. – adding up the $35 monthly fee (plus tax) over a year and adding that to his current bill. “It seems a bit ridiculous,” Petersen said. “For instance, you can hire a security company to come up to your house and check it; come inside, check that all the windows are intact and the plumbing’s not leaking etc. for less than $11 a visit. Why does it cost so much to read a meter?” B.C. Hydro spokesman Ted Olynyk said the analog meter system is becoming obsolete and the $35 is a cost recovery fee that is charged so that customers who have smart meters aren’t subsidizing the minority that don’t. He said the $35 is for more than just reading meters. “They include, the cost of adding and maintaining resources, equipment, systems that have already been automated to new, modern meters,” Olynyk said. “An example would be working around customers without the new meters. We have to install additional telecommunications equipment to ensure that the grid can work as planned.” He said the proposed fees will be reviewed by the B.C. Utilities Commission to ensure that they’re appropriate and will be submitted in an application in the coming weeks. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin 13

Minister issues cabinet order on meter fees Energy Minister Bill Bennett has issued a cabinet order to the B.C. Utilities Commission to make sure it approves fees high enough to cover the costs of customers opting out of B.C. Hydro’s smart meter

program. The order in council, signed by Bennett and Environment Minister Mary Polak, instructs the independent regulator to approve extra fees sufficient to meet the cost of manually reading mechan-

ical electricity meters that remain in use, or collecting readings from digital meters that have their radio transmitter turned off on request of the customer. The order also directs

the commission to approve fees to cover the costs of “failed installations,” either because the customer refused or because an obstacle was placed in the way of the installer.

A spokesman for Bennett confirmed that the commission may still decide to lower the opt-out fees proposed by B.C. Hydro, or it may increase them if costs warrant. editor@nanaimobulletin.com TELUS STORE OR AUThORizED DEALER

Scouts fundraising for new roof

I

CampaIgN tOOK two years to do. By Karl yu The News bulleTiN

Thanks in part to the generosity of the community, the First Nanaimo Scout group will see a new roof for its scout hut. Scout group treasurer and parent Stacy Desjardines said the group’s Comox Road hut is a heritage building that has been around since 1927 and the roof was last replaced after a fire in 1977. The work needs to be done, as there is leakage, and the porch is starting to fall into disrepair because of the leakage.

Donations from the Mid Island Co-op community foundation and the Rotary Club of Nanaimo North, as well as money raised from numerous bottle drives, will pay for the cost of supplies, according to Desjardines. The original plan called for replacement of both roof and porch but that became too expensive. The porch replacement will be a project for another day but the porch will still be demolished due to safety concerns when roof replacement takes place the weekend of Oct. 18. Volunteers from the scout group will be on hand assisting. SL Roofing from Cranbook, B.C. will be doing the work

down the whole roof and because half of our roof is plywood and half of it is shiplap. We have to replywood the whole entire roof and then go on to putting the shingles on,” Desjardines said. The scout group is responsible for its own finances and building. It had another financial concern last week when it lost the use of hot water in the building, as the hot water tank was shut down. “Mount Benson Mechanical has come in and (it is) donating a new hot water tank, so that’s a great thing to mention because they know how much we struggle to raise funds,” she said. The First Nanaimo Scout group has been raising money for the new roof for about two years.

Regional board considers tanker traffic

I

KiNdEr morgaN meets with directors to explain effects of expansion on strait of Georgia. By Karl yu The News BulleTiN

A Kinder Morgan Canada proposal to expand its Trans Mountain pipeline system could lead to increased tanker traffic in the area. The energy company made a presentation at the Regional District of Nanaimo board meeting last week, detailing the expansion of the pipeline, which runs from Edmonton to the Westbridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. If approved, the flow of oil would increase

from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000. The tanker route runs from Burnaby through to the Strait of Georgia, the Gulf Islands, through Haro Strait, Boundary Pass and through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Michael Davies, Kinder Morgan Canada senior director of marine development, told the regional district board that tanker traffic at Westbridge could increase from five to 34 a month if the expansion is approved. Regional District

of Nanaimo Area A director Alec McPherson is concerned with the routing and said there is much potential for environmental damage, but likes how Kinder Morgan has gone about keeping people apprised of its plans. “I like the way Kinder Morgan is supplying information but I’m sitting, waiting to see what else they tell us and they have been very good at going through all these different steps and they seem to be going

that step beyond to try and make people comfortable,” he said. Kinder Morgan is planning to file an application with the National Energy Board in December, which Davies said will be the beginning of a review process by the energy board. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin Thursday, October 3, 2013

Planning begins for next year’s Empire Days celebration Planning is already underway for next year’s Empire Days celebration. The Nanaimo Empire Days Celebration Society starts work with a meeting Tuesday

(Oct. 8), 7 p.m., at St. John Ambulance on Labieux Road to elect officers and appointees to committees. Some of the plans and suggestions for the Victoria Day long

weekend will then be discussed, including the May Queen crowning ceremony, the annual heritage tea, the Empire Day Parade in conjuction with the Nanaimo Lions and the cel-

ebration fireworks over the harbour. New members and community support are welcomed. Grant funding is not yet in place for 2014 to assist with the event, but even with similar

financial support as last year, there will be a shortfall of many thousands of dollars to carry out all the society’s programs. Parade assistance is also greatly needed.

To get involved, please contact society president Nettley Mark at nettleymark@ hotmail.com or parade chairwoman Diana Lilley at dianalilley@telus.net. TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

Association wants to hear forests’ stories If a tree falls in the forest and no one’s around to tell the story, that would be a shame. Coast Forest Products Association has launched a new website with the goal of starting a conversation about the significance of British Columbia’s coastal forest industry. Visitors to the website, www.ourforestsourroots.org, have the option to share their own stories, show support for the modern industry, gather insights about the history and the future of the coastal forest industry. “Coastal forest companies have made enormous strides over the last decade, becoming part of a sustainable, modern, innovative industry through hard work and collaboration,” said Rick Jeffrey, association president. “Thanks to these efforts, this industry has plenty to be proud of and a bright future ahead.” Forestry is an integral part of the economic fabric of coastal communities, from the Lower Mainland to Port Hardy to Haida Gwaii. More than 38,000 people rely on a healthy coastal forestry sector for jobs and livelihoods. Today’s coastal forest industry not only successfully co-exists with other resource sectors, such as transportation and tourism, but also supports them, as many of these workers consider these coastal communities home. “Each and every person involved in our industry – as well as their families, colleagues and entire communities, now have the opportunity with ‘Our Forests – Our Roots’ to have their voices heard. We want people to speak up in support and build some real momentum. We all depend on a healthy and thriving coastal forest sector,” Jeffrey said. Coast Forest Products Association represents forestry companies that produce logs, lumber and pulp and paper.

leaving on her own terms, close to her sisters in the city she was born in. Predeceased by her husband, Bernard; her sons, James and Christopher; her siblings, Peggy, Nelly, Edie; and her brother Jim. Survived by her children: Cindy (Jerry), Norm (Jeanne), Neil (June), DeeDee (Don), and Sheila who was like another daughter to her; 18 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Her sisters were her best friends: Lorna (Amanda – niece), twin sister, Violet (Don), Treva (Sam), and Faye; her special friend, Lloyd; and Patch, her precious cat. Mom was the anchor of the home, raising kids, cooking (always feeding friends of the kids), cleaning, gardening and running the house. With Bernie, kids and pets, they moved all over Alberta and BC, eventually settling in Richmond for many years before retiring to Nanaimo. After Bernie passed in 1991, Mom didn’t slow down; she kept busy with family and friends, with bowling, and winning gold medals in horseshoes at the BC Games. Mom was a real sports fan....a loyal Canuck, BC Lions and Jays follower. Mom was a loyal friend to many. She had a quick smile and a pleasant happy nature, and we will hold her in our hearts. Mom loved to sing; at the mere mention of a song or word she’d break into song (the whole song). She loved unconditionally. With wisdom and her sense of humor, she’d laugh through it all. The family would like to thank VIHA for the wonderful care they provided which allowed Mom to remain in her home. Thanks to Gail Cohrane of the VIHA; she saw Mom as a person and not just a patient. Also a special thanks for the kindness of the team at Chase River Pharmasave Pharmacy. A celebration will be held on October 7th at 2:00 pm at the Moose Lodge, 1356 Cranberry Ave., Nanaimo BC V9R 6Z7.

Outboards followed and when he moved his family to Nanaimo in 1968, one of his first purchases was an old cabin cruiser. Six years and three boats later Bob commissioned Matsumoto Shipyards to build the 66 foot Survey Vessel Bastion City, a ship that would become legendary on the West Coast. During the next 20 years he piloted the Bastion City from Friday Harbour to Anyox and all points in between. She made eight trips around Vancouver Island and 18 crossings of the Hecate Strait with teams of scientists, academics, and naturalists on board. At the age of 70, Bob opened Living Forest Oceanside Campground on property he had purchased 23 years previously. It has developed to become Nanaimo’s largest tourist accommodation by far. Bob only retired from the front desk in 2009, at age 85.

The family wishes to express our sincere thanks to Margie and the Staff at Arbour House for their devoted care and Bob led a rich and varied life. He will be greatly missed by his sons, daughter-in-law, attention to Lil. grandchildren and great grandchildren. Bob’s mobility decreased greatly in the last months of his life and consequently he moved into Dufferin Place. His family would like to thank both Dufferin’s staff and Dr. Cancade for their exceptional care.

Eileen Barbara ANGUS (nee Pegg)

Aged 87, died Tuesday, September 24, 2013 after a mercifully short illness. Barb was predeceased by her husband, Doug and is survived by children: Robert, Susan Ushock (Don), James (Karen), and Andrew (Caroline), Paula Tassie; and grandchildren: Adam, Simon, Kyle, Liane, Nicholas, Holly, Jessica and Jacqueline. Mum was also thrilled to have welcomed Lauren to the family as her first great granddaughter. Mum was born April 15th 1926 in Kettering England and came to Canada in 1937. The Pegg family settled in Winnipeg, Manitoba where Mum met and married Dad. Their life in the Air Force took them through Calgary, Cold Lake, Summerside, and back to Winnipeg. After retirement they moved to Richmond BC, and Mum subsequently settled in Nanaimo. Mum will also be sorely missed by her sister, Marilyn Cooper; many nieces and nephews, and all her friends at Lakeside Gardens. Our lives will all be sadder without the sound of Barb’s unmistakable laughter. Cremation and a private family memorial have been held. At Mum’s request, in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.

Shipmen determined to start strong I

BCHL TEAM at home for two straight.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Clippers saw their potential during the first month of the season. Finishing September 4-3, said coach Mike Vandekamp, puts them as an above-average club. Another win, they would have been 5-2 and an elite club. One of the ways the Clippers can approach that status is with consistently strong starts in hockey games, and they realize that. “We just need to play with more emotion and come out flying right from the start,” said Bo Brauer, Clippers forward. “If we can get that going and we can play all game through, then we can be a really good team.” He said it starts with practice. Hard work during the

Nanaimo Clippers goalie Jayson Argue makes a save as defenceman Chris Newton clears out the front of the net during Sunday’s game against the Langley Rivermen at Frank Crane Arena.

week, Brauer said, should carry right through to puck drop. “We’ve just got to be mentally and physically focused before the game,” said Austin Dick, Clippers defence-

man. “Just prepared in general.” Preparation is up to both players and coaches, but energy is up to the guys skating around the ice. If they’re not going full speed, it’s a helpless feeling for

coaches, Vandekamp said. “You can’t really do anything. You can juggle things up and try to find somebody that’s got a little fire and maybe play them a little bit more,” he said.

The Clippers expect to have no shortage of fire for their back-to-back home games this weekend against the Cowichan Valley Capitals and the West Kelowna Warriors. They know a

little bit about both opponents, having played the Caps three times in the pre-season and then opening the regular season against the Warriors a month ago. Dick said the Clippers need to execute their game plan, and Brauer said players need to do the things the coaching staff has been stressing. “Come game time we just need to move our feet as much as we can … work our hardest and play the body and get in front of shots,” he said. The game against the Caps on Friday (Oct. 4) is the BCHL Five Hole for Food Challenge and the Clippers are asking fans to bring nonperishable food items. For more information, see page 10. GAME ON … The Clippers and Caps face off at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. Saturday’s game against the Warriors is another 7 p.m. start. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Regular season finale significant for Raiders’ quarterbacks BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The last game of the regular season matters to the Raiders for a few reasons. Not the least of which is, it’s the last chance to get the passing game ready for playoff football. The V.I. Raiders will host the Westshore Rebels this Saturday (Oct. 5) at Caledonia Park. Nanaimo needs to win to clinch first place in the B.C. Football Conference, but it also needs to start thinking about playoffs. Right now, the Raiders aren’t sure who’s going to be their starting quarterback in the semifinals later this month, and that’s a bit unusual for a first-placed team. But after Jamie Ybarra broke his collarbone in last Saturday’s game, it was left to backups Jaeden Marwick and Jahmari Bennett to close out the win. It will be up to one or both of those guys to direct the

offence the rest of the way. “These guys have all got game experience, they’ve all played against the top teams…” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker. “From that standpoint, nothing that way should be new.” He said by leaning on all three quarterbacks throughout the season, it puts the Raiders in a better position now, when it’s turned out that they’ve needed all three. Marwick and Bennett know the game plan and they know to be ready when called upon. So it’s not as though the two backups are starting from scratch. “During practice … me and Jahmari and Jamie are all equally successful and we’re pretty used to the receivers and what they’re capable of,” Marwick said. “I don’t think by game time it will be any different.” Nevertheless, this week’s matchup against the Rebels will mean important reps.

Nanaimo News Bulletin 27

“For me and Jaeden, it’s definitely going to be a game for us to figure out what we can work on and what we need to improve on,” said Bennett. “This game is … a chance to improve those skills and give us a chance to see where we stand and what we know.” Both guys are excited to get a chance to line up under centre during the best part of football season. Marwick was hurt last weekend but hopes to be 100 per cent later this week. Bennett said he’s completely focused. “I definitely don’t want to let this opportunity slip,” he said. “I’m very excited but at the same time I’m going to be taking it very seriously each practice. It’s going to be all business for me this week and playoffs.” GAME ON … The Raiders and Rebels kick off at 1 p.m. Saturday. For a preview, visit www. nanaimobulletin.com tomorrow. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

THE NEWS BULLETIN

V.I. Raiders quarterback Jahmari Bennett looks to throw on the run.

Border Battle looming The Barsby Bulldogs have enjoyed taking a big bite out of football season so far, and they can’t wait to serve some up for fans in Nanaimo. The Bulldogs AA varsity football team plays its annual Border Battle game on Friday (Oct. 4) against the Ballenas Whalers. “It’s got the big red circle around it on the calendar,” said Rob Stevenson, the team’s coach. Barsby has started the regular season with two road wins, both shutouts. “I’m really happy with the way we’ve started and coalesced as a football team…” said the coach. “The guys are really hitting their stride in terms of working together.” The defence, he said, is something to behold. “We play a real teamconcept defence. We don’t hang ourselves out to dry blitzing all the time. We play assignment football and we get a lot of football players to the ball [with] our physical style of play, on top of that. Our guys relish the contact.” The Bulldogs’ D will have to watch out for both the run and the pass, said Stevenson, as the Whalers can rush the ball inside or throw deep. “They’re going to come at you hard and they’re going to come at you smart.” GRID BITS … Kickoff is at 6 p.m. Friday at Merle Logan Field following a 1:45 p.m. game that afternoon between the Nanaimo District Islanders and Windsor Dukes … Admission to the Border Battle game is free but fans are asked to bring a nonperishable food item for Barsby’s hamper program as well as a donation for Barsby’s Chef Bruce Chandler bursary. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Golfers card terrific rounds this season

Recent heavy rains and the transition into October are reminders that another local golf season is coming to an end. There are still some rounds to be played, but championship titles have now been decided and the official golf season is just about done for another year.

Assistant pro Chris Wilson reports that 116 men and 20 women took part in this year’s two-day competition. For the men, the 2013 club champion (under 55) was Zach Anderson, who edged out Merrick Dennill with a 144 total. Third low gross was Al Jensen.

Among his other accomplishments this season, Anderson won the CN Future Links Championship and placed fourth at the B.C. Golf Junior Championships. Meanwhile, Shirin Anjarwalla won the junior girls’ Order of Merit title thanks to her fine play over the summer and was a repeat winner of the Player of the Year crown. Anjarwalla posted several tournament wins and finished fourth at the 16-and-under juvenile girls’ championship. As mentioned, there is still some golf to be played. The VIU Mariners team continues its fall season with a tournament in Chilliwack this weekend. And a late highlight to the season will come later this month, when Nanaimo’s Sandy Harper will be honoured with induction into the B.C. Golf Hall of Fame.

The Bucs host the second-place Campbell River Storm (3-4-1-1) tonight (Oct. 3). Riel Gibson, Nanaimo forward, said his team is keeping up its intensity throughout the winning streak. “When we start to slack off, [our coach] lets us know and it keeps us motivated, which is good, because it’s easy to get overconfident and let up,” said Gibson. The Buccaneers host the Storm tonight at 7:15 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Tickets are $9 at the door. The Bucs then visit the Oceanside Generals (1-7-1) on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Parksville’s Oceanside Place.

Yellow Point Drama Group seeing stars in fall play BY LINDSAY CHUNG BLACK PRESS

NANAIMO THEATRE Group stages Boeing Boeing this month.

t’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier – a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms. Boeing Boeing is a classic

farce, written by Marc Camoletti, and was once listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most performed French play in the world. Arlene Blundell, who produced My Fair Lady at the Port Theatre, directs the comedy for Nanaimo Theatre Group. An innocent farce about how technological advances can unravel a life of meticulous precision, this production features new actors Kelly Kijek, Brett Trimble and Natasha Koch, the seasoned actor and theatre group president, Sheila Coultish, and regulars Cindy Peters and Lauren Janolino. The flamboyant ’60s set is designed by Jolyon Brown

Imagine the excitement of finding out major stars like Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift are filming a movie in your small town. This is how the residents of Natchez, Miss., are feeling in 1956 in Seeing Stars in Dixie, the fall play presented by the Yellow Point Drama Group Oct. 3-19. It’s the days before the paparazzi, and star-struck locals are hoping to spot Taylor and Clift nearby shooting a movie. But there’s much more going on in the play than the movie production. Seeing Stars in Dixie, written by Ron Osborne and directed by Joanne Rowland for the Yellow Point Drama Group, centers around Clemmie’s Tea Room, where an insecure proprietress attracts a secret admirer, directs her own cast of customers and competes for a moment in the spotlight. This lighthearted comedy stars Patricia Zogar as Clemmie; Evelyn Applin as Tootie, her opinionated friend; Tabi Jasper as former beauty queen Jo Beth; Michael Robinson as Glease, a man with a welldeveloped fashion sense; and Inge Cathers as devious social climber Marjorie. “It’s a lovely, gentle comedy set in the 1950s, and I think it’s relative to today because there are a lot of relationship issues in the play,” said Brian March, drama group president. “The things they have to overcome are things we still have to deal with today, failure and how we deal with it. Really, it’s a story of how the characters within the play deal with their own personal issues of inadequacy and the problems they have in their personal lives, and how they get through it through the excitement of a movie coming to town. There is a lot of good stuff in it. It has that lovely

appeal of the southern U.S. in its set, the accents and the costumes of the period.” Rowland agrees the play is “really quite fun.” “They learn a lot about themselves in this play,” she said. “They take chances they’ve never taken before; they overcome obstacles in their life that makes them enjoy life more.” Rowland feels the play is quite relatable. “We watch these real people discover something about themselves, and I think we’re all looking to do that,” she said. “It has some humor, but there are also some life stories in it.” Seeing Stars in Dixie is Rowland’s directorial debut for the drama group. She has been an actor for many years, and she says she has enjoyed learning a lot about acting from the various directors she has worked with and by listening to adjudicators at the Theatre BC Mainstage festival in Kamloops. The actors, who are all volunteers, have been rehearsing for seven weeks, and Rowland says there is mix of experience levels, and they’ve all really supported one another. “They’re all so generous with helping each other and trusting each other,” she said. “It’s a good ensemble cast.” Seeing Stars in Dixie opens Thursday (Oct. 3) with a discounted preview evening when tickets are $12, and the play runs Oct. 4-5, 11-12, 18 and 19. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $17; $12/youth. On Oct. 12, doors open at 6 p.m. for a special 8 p.m. dinner-theatre presentation. Tickets are $35 and include a three-course dinner. On Oct. 19, doors open at 1 p.m. for a 2 p.m. matinee performance; tickets are $12. Tickets are available at the door at Cedar hall or by calling 250-245-7516. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Author explores Island cougars Vancouver Island is known not only for having the highest density of cougars, but also the most aggressive cougar population in North America. Author Paula Wild gives a slideshow presentation Oct. 12 on her new book, The Cougar: Beautiful, Wild and Dangerous, that explores the evolving relationship with this enigmatic animal. Cougars, mountain lions, pumas – no matter what you call them, these powerful animals are undoubtedly impressive. The cougar is the largest cat in Canada, weighing in at up to 230 pounds, 90 per cent of which is pure muscle. They can leap nearly six metres up from a standstill, and 14 metres across. Their large padded paws allow this elusive predator to travel great distances in near silence and they’re absolute masters at blending in. Chances are anyone who spends time in the woods in cougar country has been close to a cougar, whether they knew it or not. It can be a scary thought, especially combined with the lengthy

history of recorded encounters that have occurred on Vancouver Island in the last two hundred years or more, many of which are told in Wild’s The Cougar.

was attacked two separate times by the same cougar in one day, it had so fixated on her as prey; and surprising accounts of encounters occurring where you’d least expect it, like the parking garage at the Empress Hotel in Victoria. However, as Wild says in The Cougar, “co-existing with cougars isn’t about fear, it’s about knowledge.” Through a

blend of natural history, scientific research and many first-hand accounts, along with amazing photos and detailed information on what to do in the case of a cougar encounter, Wild explores what makes this animal that has both fascinated and frightened Vancouver Islanders throughout history so beautiful, so dangerous, and why cougars remain such an important and valuable part of our environment. Wild is the author of several books, including One River, Two Cultures, The Comox Valley and Sointula: Island Utopia, winner of a B.C. Historical Federation Certificate of Merit. She has also written for numerous periodicals, including Beautiful British Columbia, Reader’s Digest and Canada’s History Magazine. She lives in Courtenay with her partner, Rick James. The event takes place at Nanaimo Museum, beginning at 2 p.m. Admission to Wild’s presentation is free and all are welcome.

Tours reveal hidden ghost stories

I

nAnAimo muSeum received requests for history walks.

There are hidden histories and even ghost stories connected with several downtown Nanaimo locations. The Nanaimo Museum is hosting a new Lantern Tour this October featuring stories of a grisly axe murder from 145 years ago, public hangings, and reputed ghost sightings. The Lantern Tour will take participants on a walk through downtown. The group will stop outside various locations including the old provincial jail, courthouse, hotel and the former Foundry site. “The tour highlights the history of the locations and

archival photos will show buildings that no longer exist,” said Aimee Greenaway, program and volunteer coordinator. “Some of the stories, like Brother XII, are well-known locally but the stories of Peter Kakua and the Flying Dutchman are not.” Peter Kakua committed a gruesome murder downtown in the 1860s and the Flying Dutchman was the last person to be hanged in Nanaimo. The Lantern Tour was inspired by requests from the public and the popularity of ghost tours in other regions. “The Lantern Tour is a history tour with darker themes like murders, hangings, cults,” said Greenaway. “The tour is really about people and places from the

Club takes young music fans backstage It’s an opportunity – for kids only – to walk through the stage door, hang around backstage, meet musicians, watch a symphony in rehearsal, get a sneak peek behind the scenes, and find out all about the magic and wonder of music. It’s the Vancouver Island Symphony’s NoteworthyKids Music Fan Club for children ages eight to 12. They don’t have to learn or play an instrument – just love music. In addition to the backstage pass to Noteworthy Kids events, the

children also get a T-shirt. They meet a new symphony musician at each event and learn about their instrument. The children then sit anywhere in the theatre during a rehearsal with artistic director Pierre Simard. The next event for Noteworthy Kids is set for Oct. 25. To register, please call the symphony at 250754-0177. The cost is $40 for the year, and includes the T-shirt and tickets to a show. Bursaries are available based on financial need.

® CAREVEST MIC FUNDS Involve family in healthy habits The start of the school year is a busy time for teens and younger students. It’s also a great time to establish healthy habits for eating and exercise. Those habits are much more likely to be successful if the whole family is involved, according to members of the Central Island Healthy Weights: Shapedown B.C. team. “Parents do not have to take on the role of being the ‘food police’ or ‘exercise police’,” said Island Health psychologist Glynis Marks, co-ordinator of the Nanaimo-based Healthy Weights program. Marks and other members of the team encourage families to make simple lifestyle changes that support overall health – with a strong emphasis on fun. “Fall is a beauti-

ful time on the West Coast for families to get out on a trail, take your bikes out or head to the park with a soccer ball,” said Healthy Weights team member Damon Johnston, recreation coordinator with the City of Nanaimo. Tara McNeil, another team member and wellness coach, says the end of summer can be challenging for students who are back at their school desks with less time for activities. “A lot of your time at school is sitting down,” she said. “You’re sitting again doing homework. Think of fun activities with your friends that don’t involve more sitting – go for a walk or dance rather than watch a movie.” The team offers tips for teens, suggesting they start each day with a nourishing, satisfying breakfast, followed by a healthy

balanced lunch. When hunger strikes after school, they should go for fruit and veggies, rather than chips and other high-calorie processed foods. Physical activity should be part of a daily routine whether it’s walking the dog, riding a bike to school or taking part in sports. The Central Island Healthy Weights:

Shapedown B.C. program helps children ages 6-17 and their families make realistic and meaningful lifestyle changes that can lead to improved health, enhanced emotional well being and healthy weight management.

undergone an extensive remodel and energy upgrade.  The initial project included lifting the house approximately 2 feet, upgrading all mechanical and electrical systems, and insulating the house to 21st century standards.  The home’s floor plan has been revised to increase the sense of light and space, with a more open, flowing feel.  Original doors, trim, fixtures, brick, windows, and flooring were all salvaged and re-used where possible to maintain the character of the home.  Cypress trees were removed to increase light in the yard; the wood was milled and reused in the front porch railings.

The title, if not the lyrics, to the Rolling Stones song Gimme Shelter, could apply to Island Roots Market Co-operataive. The Nanaimobased farmers market co-operative was founded in July 2012, has attracted upwards of 160 members and even has a tentative opening date set for spring 2014, but is still looking for a place to set up shop. The concept is to have a year-round, indoor market for local farmers and artisans. “We’re again without a home,” said Larry Whaley, market co-founder. “We’ve thought we had a home twice, but it’s looking like neither one is going to work out.” The first was in the old Medical Arts Building at 350 Albert St. “That didn’t work because the owners decided they would rather tear it down and build a parking lot,” Whaley said. Heavy equipment was on site demolishing the building last month. Hopes have been

Organizers behind Island Roots Market hoped they’d found a home for the year-round indoor farmers’ market only to run into zoning issues and seismic stability with a building on Milton Street.

dashed again, at least temporarily, for moving into another location at the old Sun Glo Lumber building at 540 Milton St. The plan there was to set up the market in what was once a covered lumber warehouse area at the back of the main building, but the city wants seismic upgrades made to the structure before it can be re-designated for retail use. “At this stage we don’t know how much that might cost or even what needs to be done,” Whaley said. Tthe spot would be great for a market, he said, if the co-operative can get in there. “We want the public to be safe, so we’re not annoyed or anything

at the city,” Whaley said. “It’s just difficult because it keeps putting on delays and adding costs and at this stage we don’t know what the costs might be and whether it’s affordable or not.” Paul Manhas, the building’s owner, said he brought in Herold Engineering and architect Ian Niamath to survey the structure. Manhas said the warehouse was used as a retail space for many years, but it was never officially re-designated as such and consequently there are no records with the city stating it was ever anything other than warehouse space. “We’re trying to get

an estimate what it would cost to comply,” Manhas said. For the time being, at least, all plans are on hold until the engineering and architectural cost estimates come in. “If that is something between us – we and the owner – can manage, we will be going there,” Whaley said. “If not, we’ll be in search

of another place.” Whaley said organizers have not pushed hard to increase membership because of uncertainty about where and when the market will open, but once it finds a home he expect membership to increase dramatically. “So, that’s where it sits,” Whaley said. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Manson to pursue education at the then Malaspina College. It was the elders from Snuneymeuxw who urged her to use her skills and compassion to train as a ‘pre-elder’, rather than continuing to train and work directly in health care. “They said, ‘We need you here, to continue to learn the language, the land, the history, and be our legs and our eyes when we can no longer do so,” Manson says. Through her work, Manson met former VIU elder-in-residence Ellen White. “She was the one who continued my training when the elders were no more,” she said. “Auntie Ellen was the first elder-inresidence at VIU, and she is my mentor and advisor.” Today, with a full and busy life including three children, eight grandchildren, and one great grandchild, Manson can be found welcoming faculty to a regular gathering, counselling a student at Shq’apthut, or working with new students. She shares her wisdom where it’s required, and “if I can’t offer it, I will bring in other traditional knowledge keepers.” editor@nanaimobulletin.com

BEEF To the people who keep dumping all their used baby and children’s items, and household items on the sidewalk in front of our homes on the 4600 block of Hammond Bay Road. We’re getting tired of having to pick up your stuff and take it all to the dump for you. BOUQUET To the person who found my lost car keys at Buttertubs and took them to the police station.

Planning begins for next year’s Empire Days celebration Planning is already underway for next year’s Empire Days celebration. The Nanaimo Empire Days Celebration Society starts work with a meeting Tuesday

(Oct. 8), 7 p.m., at St. John Ambulance on Labieux Road to elect officers and appointees to committees. Some of the plans and suggestions for the Victoria Day long

weekend will then be discussed, including the May Queen crowning ceremony, the annual heritage tea, the Empire Day Parade in conjuction with the Nanaimo Lions and the cel-

ebration fireworks over the harbour. New members and community support are welcomed. Grant funding is not yet in place for 2014 to assist with the event, but even with similar

financial support as last year, there will be a shortfall of many thousands of dollars to carry out all the society’s programs. Parade assistance is also greatly needed.

To get involved, please contact society president Nettley Mark at nettleymark@ hotmail.com or parade chairwoman Diana Lilley at dianalilley@telus.net. TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

Association wants to hear forests’ stories If a tree falls in the forest and no one’s around to tell the story, that would be a shame. Coast Forest Products Association has launched a new website with the goal of starting a conversation about the significance of British Columbia’s coastal forest industry. Visitors to the website, www.ourforestsourroots.org, have the option to share their own stories, show support for the modern industry, gather insights about the history and the future of the coastal forest industry. “Coastal forest companies have made enormous strides over the last decade, becoming part of a sustainable, modern, innovative industry through hard work and collaboration,” said Rick Jeffrey, association president. “Thanks to these efforts, this industry has plenty to be proud of and a bright future ahead.” Forestry is an integral part of the economic fabric of coastal communities, from the Lower Mainland to Port Hardy to Haida Gwaii. More than 38,000 people rely on a healthy coastal forestry sector for jobs and livelihoods. Today’s coastal forest industry not only successfully co-exists with other resource sectors, such as transportation and tourism, but also supports them, as many of these workers consider these coastal communities home. “Each and every person involved in our industry – as well as their families, colleagues and entire communities, now have the opportunity with ‘Our Forests – Our Roots’ to have their voices heard. We want people to speak up in support and build some real momentum. We all depend on a healthy and thriving coastal forest sector,” Jeffrey said. Coast Forest Products Association represents forestry companies that produce logs, lumber and pulp and paper.

Among his other accomplishments this season, Anderson won the CN Future Links Championship and placed fourth at the B.C. Golf Junior Championships. Meanwhile, Shirin Anjarwalla won the junior girls’ Order of Merit title thanks to her fine play over the summer and was a repeat winner of the Player of the Year crown. Anjarwalla posted several tournament wins and finished fourth at the 16-and-under juvenile girls’ championship. As mentioned, there is still some golf to be played.
