Ed Nicholson honoured by Rotary Club P. 5

P. 11

To mark World Food Day Wednesday, Oct. 16, students, staff and parents from St. Joseph’s School in Chemainus held a food walk through the community. The World Food Day walk is an initiative of the Island Catholic Schools and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul to raise awareness of hunger issues around the globe and within the community. Leading up to the walk, students at St. Joseph’s collected about 25 bags of groceries for the food bank. “Our purpose in going downtown is to walk as a community and show the community we care,” said principal Bern Muller. “The initiative is promoting an awareness, not only for our students that others are in need and we need to share with them, but also with the community that this is an issue. I told the children they are empowered — they are actively doing something. This is a way everyone can be empowered without everyone bringing a loonie.” LINDSAY CHUNG

Petition created to keep École Davis Road open Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

A petition is circulating to express support for keeping École Davis Road (EDR) Elementary open. EDR is at risk of closure at the end of this school year as part of School District 68’s 10-year Enhanced Facilities for Learning plan. Last spring, the school board extended the consultation on this decision until Dec. 1, and a working group has been created to meet and discuss potential options. A final decision will be made by Dec. 18. In collaboration with the EDR Parent Advisory Council (PAC), EDR parents Jessica Lowry and Graeme Rouse created a petition to demonstrate the support to keep EDR open. “Its target audience is Ladysmith residents, current Davis Road parents and future parents,” said Lowry. “Our hope is that during this decision making time,

this petition can help with a positive outcome for the school, for south-end Ladysmith and the entire Ladysmith community. With a large amount of support, there will be positive pressure applied to the Town of Ladysmith and to the Board of Education to really consider the short and long term effects of closing such a popular school, with a great educational track record and one that serves as the community hub of the growing south end of Ladysmith.” The petition is directed to Ladysmith’s mayor and council and to the board of education and senior administration at SD68. “We hope to gather as much support over the next month or so, to reflect the community’s support to keep Davis Road Elementary open before the Dec. 18 decision,” said Lowry. As of Monday morning, the online petition had 175 signatures, and Lowry says “ a lot of great, personal feedback” has

park continues in Chemainus Peter W. Rusland THE CHRONICLE

Vocal Chemainiacs demanded all of publicly-owned Echo Heights forest be preserved as parkland Wednesday, Oct. 16, while council remained split on that idea. After heated debate, council voted to send a planning department report — based on saving 80 per cent of Echo Heights as park — to three committees for debate and recommendations to council. A public meeting would follow those committee reports. The other 20 per cent is targeted for 54 residential lots, on 4.2 hectares, for phased sale to developers, given market conditions. Those sales could reap an estimated $3 million to fund council’s various other projects. Mayor Jon Lefebure later noted no final decision has been made about how much of Echo Heights to save. He voiced concerns the 20 per cent area, basically ground already cleared for development, could impact the forest, marsh, and meadowlands. Those ecosystems are described as rare and precious by the Chemainus Residents Association members, plus various scientists and First Nations representatives. Lefebure suggested a phone

poll of residents to help gauge their appetite for saving all of 22.12-hectare Echo Heights. “A high percentage of our residents are in favour of that. It might help give guidance to council,” he said, citing an earlier phone survey about North Cowichan’s climate-action tax. Aware of CRA demands, the mayor and Councillor Kate Marsh later voted against sending the 80/20 plan to the Chemainus advisory, community planning, and climate-change advisory committees. “I’d like to see us save all of it,” Marsh said. “We already own this land. I can’t see how saving a forest would be the wrong thing to do, in terms of climate (action).” But Councillor John Koury, head of council’s economic development committee, seemed sick of talking about saving any more than 80 per cent. He pulled staff’s recommendation to send the planning report to the EDC. Koury miffed the mayor by suggesting Lefebure was basically “indifferent” about how much of Echo Heights to save. Lefebure objected as some councillors and residents walked out of the tense chambers. That happened after CRA members told council why all of Echo Heights must be saved, a tune they’ve sung to council for years.

Echo Heights supporters crowded the North Cowichan council chamber Wednesday armed with petitions and stickers. PETER W. RUSLAND Biologist Kelly Bannister suggested councillors accept expert advice available about Echo Heights’ ecological, scientific and cultural values, noting studies done so far are “quick and dirty assessments.” For instance, she cited further archaeological and hydrological data needed — finding it “ironic” council officially received its climate-action plan award Wednesday before debating the controversial forest. Tom Masters said there’s no community support for developing the Heights. “It comes down to the people want it saved, and it’s the right thing to do.” Gus Lolaric explained housing projects already underway in Mural Town are selling slowly,

despite reduced prices. “Spend (taxpayer) money on projects of more benefit to the community. Don’t cut down the trees for short-term gain.” Diana Hardacker told how school kids learn about nature on Echo Heights field trips. “Nature deficit disorder is rampant among children today,” she said. Mary Dolan said folks have used the Heights as a park for years, as it is “remarkable in its diversity”, before CRA chairman Bernie Jones pointed to some 1,400 petition signatures so far to save the site. Lefebure said he didn’t expect a public meeting about Echo Heights until January, after the planning report is discussed by the three committees.”

Nick Epp-Evans, station leader for Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) Unit 29 Ladysmith, expects the unit’s new rescue vessel to be training in our local waters in mid-December. The new vessel, seen here under construction, will replace a vessel that has been in service since 1999, and it will provide greater crew safety, better performance and more capability for search and rescue work. “Unit 29 wishes to thank everybody who has donated time, money or both,” says Epp-Evans. According to Epp-Evans, a further $25,000 is needed to fully equip the vessel and to provide upgrades to the unit’s boat shed and boat lift. Tax-deductible donations can be made online at www. rcmsar29.com or by calling 250-6682993. Ladysmith RCM-SAR Station 29 is sponsored by the Ladysmith and District Marine Rescue Society and provides marine search and rescue services for the northern section of the Gulf Island region including the islands and waters between Dodds Narrows to the north and Sansum Narrows to the south. Ladysmith is one of the busiest units in the Pacific region, responding to more than 3,000 calls since its inception. PHOTO SUBMITTED

Nicholson’s impact on the ® CAREVEST MIC FUNDS community recognized Mike D’Amour the chronicle

Ed Nicholson got up from his chair, looked through the viewer of his camera and prepared to take a photo of the newest recipient of the Ladysmith Rotarian of the Year. “I got my camera all poised, waiting for the person to walk up,” the 70-year-old retired professor of education recalled. “Then there’s applause and my wife is tapping me on the back. “I said, ‘What? I’m taking a picture.’ “She said: ‘That’s you.’” That’s how Nicholson learned he’d won the highest honour given by his service club. “Honest to God, it was totally unexpected — I had voted for someone else. I didn’t have the slightest clue — I was just stunned,” he said of

the June event. The award was even more significant given the fact Nicholson had been a member less than five years. “He sure has had a heck of an impact in a short amount of time,” said Ron Howe, who was Rotary president at the time of Nicholson’s win “Everyone likes him; he’s a very positive individual.” The Rotarian of the Year is awarded to one Rotarian in the club and is voted by private ballot by the 36 members. “(Nicholson) won largely because of his involvement in our different projects,” said Howe. “He’s our sergeant-atarms and is a very creative, knowledgeable, intelligent individual.” Nicholson also heads up a couple of our major events each year, one of them being the Rotary Garden Tour. “He works very hard

at fundraising at the event as well as the King and Country event coming up in November,” said Howe. The King and Country is an event where Rotarians and Legionnaires join to recognize soldiers from Ladysmith who were killed during a war are honoured with an “empty chair” dinner. “During that night, everything is focused on that individual and his family — it’s the only event of its kind,” Howe said. Nicholson, who writes the Chronicle’s historical columns each month, spent much of his education career in Alberta before he agreed to develop a faculty of education in Guangdong Province, a job that saw him spend eight years on the South China Sea. He eventually retired and could only think of one place

for he and his wife to spend their golden years. “Ladysmith was always home for me,” said Nicholson, who noted his family was Ladysmith pioneers. “I’m now less than a half-kilometre from where I lived as a small guy.” Nicholson said he’s more than pleased to be a Rotarian. “Rotary epitomizes all I believe in: honesty, integrity — in both person and profession — and giving back to your community.”

Shelve Echo Heights plan

YOUR WORDS

“Everyone likes him; he’s a very positive individual.” Ron Howe, Page 5

Y

es, we have blasted North Cowichan in this space for financial irresponsibility. Yes, just last issue we were calling on the community to create more affordable housing. And yes, the 20-per-cent proposal for Echo Heights forest could be a significant step toward addressing each of those concerns. But we’ve come to the conclusion any plans to develop this chunk of municipal forestland should be shelved for the foreseeable future. The reason is not because it is a precious piece of rare ecology — it’s not. And the reason is not because council has no place in the development business, or that there are better places to build. No, the reason is better than those, or any of the many other reasons that have been put forth in the past decade. Our reason is much more basic: the community does not want it. There were plenty of good reasons to build a recycling depot on Cameron-Taggart Road. We supported the idea when it was first proposed. But within a few weeks we had reversed that position. It very quickly became clear the community simply did not want it. And the first lesson of democratic government should be “give the people what they want.” If the CVRD had heeded that guideline in the ECO Depot fiasco, it could have saved taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, and buckets of ill will. The Echo Heights proposal has been around much longer than the ECO Depot was, and, if anything, opposition to the idea has intensified. If the community doesn’t want it, council needs to accept that. That’s why this is called a democracy. —Cowichan News Leader Pictorial

of news to our local community. Journalism is a path I have wanted to go down since early on in my teenage years. Now, at 21, I feel very lucky and privileged to have been given an opportunity to practise something I know I’m going to love. Having been born to Scottish parents in England, I moved to Vancouver back in September 2008 in search of a new adventure. Writing has been a longterm passion, having had both poetry and short stories published in recent times. Now, that passion, combined with my enjoyment of news and the thrill of presenting stories to the public, I see as being the perfect catalyst in making this first step in what I hope to be a long and successful career. At Langara’s journalism school, I was trained by some of the most experienced journalists in Canada. Most importantly, my teachers taught me what

North American champion. I also won the 12-years title at the world championships back in 2004. My exploits and escapades in highland dancing are what first brought me to the Cowichan Valley. My close friend Judy Hogg runs local dance studio Celtic Rhythm Dancers based in Maple Bay and first asked me to do a workshop for the group back in February 2011. The rest is history. I am an avid sports guy, in particular soccer and basketball, and as a general sports fan, this area of writing news stories I would say is a particular strength. Country would be a favourite of mine on the music front — I guess Canada has taken its toll that way. Being much-travelled, I believe Vancouver Island to be one of the most beautiful places on earth and I’m excited to develop more friends beginning from my new working base in Ladysmith. Hope to see you around town one day.

And that’s in the summer! The winter recovery rate would be more like three per cent. Talk radio and website headlines set the narrative in minutes. How could anyone even consider running oil tankers through that pristine B.C. coastal area? It’s crazy! Call ourthe big fact clearly stated Here’s Classifed in the study by U.S.-based Nuka Department Research and Planning Group, and ignored by most of the media and public. There are hundreds of 1-855-310-3535

tankers filled with crude oil sailing through these stormy seas every year. It’s been going on since Alaska North Slope crude was developed in the 1970s. Six of the seven oil spill simulations run by Nuka are based on Alaska crude, because that’s overwhelmingly what has been shipped along B.C.’s North Coast for 40 years. This lack of crude oil spill response capability has existed the entire time, without a whisper of protest or media attention, even after the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster near the oil’s point of origin. The current narrative, hammered home by U.S.-controlled environmental groups and their aboriginal partners in the “Great Bear Rainforest,” is that only Canadian oil is a threat. How much Alaska crude is shipped down the B.C. coast? According to Nuka’s analysis, it’s currently about 38 million cubic metres each year. That’s enough to fill B.C. Place stadium to the roof — 15 times. The Sierra-Greenpeace-For-

estEthics-Dogwood gang, a sort of billionaire-bankrolled green Team America, has worked hard to promote the falsehood that “tar sands” oil is vastly worse than that nice fair-trade Alaska stuff. Their claims about acidity and abrasiveness of diluted bitumen didn’t hold up, and it’s still hotly contested whether the heavy oil in diluted bitumen would float, emulsify or sink in actual sea conditions. When the federal government announced a study to determine what spilled bitumen would do in North Coast waters, that too was attacked by the Green Party as a secret scheme to prop up Enbridge’s pipeline proposal. So it’s a scandal when you don’t know the answers, and it’s a scandal when you try to find them. Another question that gets little attention is whether it’s better for spilled oil to sink rather than wash up on beaches. Crude oil is, if you’ll pardon the expression, organic. Spills produce a huge spike in oil-eating bacteria that leads to an increase

in fish populations at a certain stage. This was documented in a 1994 book called Degrees of Disaster, written by an expert who stayed on in Valdez for four years, long after the TV cameras and grandstanding politicians went home. Victoria-based Dogwood seized on a 2012 Nuka study done for the Haisla Nation at Kitimat, which found that in ocean conditions that are present more than half of the time, there would be no immediate way to respond to a spill at sea. Dogwood’s “no tankers campaign director” hinted that this information was intentionally left out of the B.C. government study, and the media ate it up. No tankers? Better check again. Dogwood’s mission is clearly not to protect the B.C. coast from oil spills. If it were, they would be protesting the ongoing risk from Alaska tankers.

Steve Van Der Minne, unit chief for B.C. Ambulance Service Station 159 in Ladysmith, says a training session like this is very helpful. “It helps from our point of view when dealing with patients to anticipate what the firefighters are going to do,” he said. “It helps to know the fire department’s capability in getting patients out. It also makes us more aware of safety considerations when we’re at an accident scene.” With major trauma like a highway collision, time is of the essence, emphasized Van Der Minne. “They used to talk about the ‘golden hour,’ and now the [International Trauma Life Support] course paramedics do emphasized you might not have an hour,” he said. “That’s why the fire department practises how to get people safely and quickly out.

The Heiress ‘full of great characters’ Mike D’Amour THE CHRONICLE

It’s been a theatrical staple for more than 65 years, now the Ladysmith Little Theatre has inherited The Heiress. “Absolutely audiences will enjoy this play,” said director Bill Johnston. “This is top-notch, and I’m not just saying that because I’m in charge of it,” he said. “I think everything from the actors to the costumes and the set are incredible.” Written in 1947 by Ruth and Augustus Goetz, The Heiress, based on Henry James’ novel, Washington Square, has been performed many times. “There have been a few adaptations over the years,” said Johnston. “Of course the famous movie version that won Olivia de Havilland an Oscar for best actress, and there’s been a recent revival on Broadway.” The play is about a young woman, Catherine Sloper, who lives with her father, a man who begrudges the fact his wife died giving birth to Catherine. “The mother was a great beauty, a clever, charming woman,” said Johnston. The daughter, unfortunately, inherited

The Heiress, which is being directed by Bill Johnston, runs Oct. 24 to Nov. 10.M MIKE DIETRICH none of those traits. “So, when a young man — who’s a bit of a fortune hunter — comes along and takes an interest in her, the father immediately wants to break them up,” said Johnston. Catherine decides to follow her heart and finds the price of her desires is the threat of disinheritance from her father. Ultimately, The Heiress is a tale of love and regret, duty and desire and ultimate empowerment.

Despite the somber tone, Johnston said the play has plenty of comedy. “It’s extremely well written, cleverly written,” he said. “What’s really nice is the comedy comes from the characters and how they react to any given situation.” What’s more is this is a play with one terrific ending, he said. Nine actors take part

in the two-act play, and Kyla Mitrovic plays the lead. “She’s an incredible, award-winning actress and we’re so lucky to have her,” said Johnston, who was quick to point out his entire cast is gifted. “People should know this is not a boring play,” he said. “It’s a period piece, but not a staid boring piece

— it’s full of great characters.” The play runs Oct. 24 to Nov. 10 at Ladysmith Little Theatre (www.ladysmith theatre.com/).

I’ve always been a fan of spooky stories and sitting on the edge-of-your-seat plots. But unfortunately, Chemainus Theatre’s version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula didn’t get one scream, gasp, or jump out of my seat from me. Although the theatre’s latest Edwardian, Sherlock Holmes-style world of the Count created by director Bernard Cuffling had several cool factors, it was slack in its scariness. The excitement, anger and fear from character’s Ian Butcher’s Count Dracula Dr. Seward (Erin Ormond), was stellar, but overall the Seward’s daughter and Chemainus Theatre adapDracula victim Lucy Seward tation of the classic needs (Masae Day) and Lucy’s hus- sharper fangs. Andrew Leong band Jonathan Harker (Daryl King) fell a tad flat. And Lucy’s bed, was pretty nifty, the signature Psycho-esque as well as his pasty face apshower scene shriek used pearing in the painting. The closing stage set shift, in Cuffling’s bat scenes was overkill. A less recognizable where Renfield, Dracula, sound effect would have Van Helsing, Dr. Seward and Harker, travelled into been much more spookier.

Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

You’ll find community, costumes and cyclocross this Sunday at Transfer Beach. Ladysmith hosts Crosstoberfest, the fourth race in the Cross on the Rock series, Sunday, Oct. 27, starting at 11 a.m. This will be the third year Cross on the Rock cyclocross series comes to Ladysmith. “It’s by far our most beautiful venue we use,” said Normon Thibault, who organizes the race series with Wendy Simms and the Council of Cross. “Even if it’s bad weather, it’s very picturesque. We have a great course mapped out. Every year, Mike and Tara Pollock refine the course, and it’s just been getting better and better.” Thibault says the kids’ course at Transfer Beach is one of the better ones because it’s so central, and the atmosphere is fun because the race is so close to Halloween. “A lot of people race in costumes; there’s been some crazy costumes over the years, which makes it a little more fun too,” he said. Crosstoberfest was the second-most popular race in the Cross on the Rock series in 2012, with 208 racers. The Cross on the Rocks series as a whole has been growing each year. The first Island Cup Series was held in 2006 with 159 riders and has increased each year. There were 331 participants in 2011, and that number jumped to 438 in 2012. Thibault thinks the family-friendly and competitive-but-not-cutthroat atmosphere helps makes cyclocross popular. “The races are hard, but they’re not super long so you don’t have to train a lot,” he said. “You can do a race with minimal fitness. You can do well without a lot of training. People make fun of themselves, but they also want to do well. It accommodates such a wide range of people, and nobody really cares. It’s competitive, but that’s not the main focus. The main focus is just going out and having fun. It’s just not cutthroat.” “We just want to keep the focus on fun

This Sunday’s Crosstoberfest cyclocross race at Transfer Beach features a kids’ race so the whole family can get involved. Registration is at 10 a.m., a beginner clinic takes place at 10:15 a.m., and racing starts at 11 a.m. FILE PHOTO events, a safe environment and atmosphere where families can come,” he added. “We have families where all four or five people are racing throughout the day. That to us is super, super cool since both Wendy and I have kids. It provides a really cool introductory environment for more families to get into bike racing.” Pollock, the local organizer of the event, says Crosstoberfest has grown over the years, and with the way the Cross on the Rocks races have been going so far this year, she thinks it’s going to be another big number. Pollock thinks the location has a lot to do with Crosstoberfest’s popularity. “Transfer Beach is absolutely beautiful, so when people come to race, they’re racing by the ocean and all kinds of terrain,” she said. “The location is also very central. We’ve gotten rave reviews of Transfer Beach overall as a course — it has beach, hills, mud, everything the racers like.” This year, a number of new sponsors have come on board to make Crosstoberfest even more of a community event.

Old Town Bakery will supply cinnamon buns as prizes, and the Ladysmith Lions Club will serve bratwurst to fit the Crosstoberfest theme — and they’ll be using meat from Bouma Meats. Wolf Brewing in Nanaimo is sponsoring the beer garden, while Black and White Coffee in Crofton and Cowichan Cycles are also involved. “It’s really a community-driven event,” said Pollock. “The Town of Ladysmith has been great too in putting this together.” Crosstoberfest takes place Sunday, Oct. 27 at 11 a.m. at Transfer Beach. A beginner clinic will take place at 10:15 a.m. Once the racing gets going, there will be categories for beginner men and women, youth men and women, intermediate men and women, children younger than 12, masters men, open women, and expert. Anyone interested in participating can register online at www.raceonline.ca/ events/details/?id=469. There is registration on the day of the race at 10 a.m., but Pollock encourages people to pre-register, as it will make everything go quicker.
