Clark speech focuses on job creation I funding for Malahat approved. By Karl yu The News BulleTiN

Jobs were the focus of B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s 2013 election campaign and also of her address at the 2013 State of the Island Economic Summit Wednesday afternoon in Nanaimo. While she spoke at length about jobs in the liquefied natural gas industry, Clark also talked about the one million job openings between now and 2020. The provincial government announced earlier in the day that Vancouver Island University’s Nanaimo campus would be getting $144,000 from the province to pay for a total of 30 student spaces for the baking program and a trades discovery pilot program. “We’re going to have to make sure

we are investing in our skills training programs across the board,” Clark said. “The employment skills access program at [Vancouver Island University] is incredibly important. “We need to make sure we reverse engineer our education system so that we’re supplying the grads that our economy needs. Start in postsecondary, figure out how we’re going to fill those needs in the economy. Make sure our apprenticeship programs are seamless so that young people can get straight into the workforce as quickly as possible.” The economic summit is an annual conference hosted by the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance featuring panel discussions and keynote speakers, including Gary Mason, Globe and Mail national columnist, and Ferio Pugliese, president of WestJet Encore.

City seeks assurance on tax revenue prior to rezoning for pot By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Christy Clark, B.C. premier, gave the closing speech Wednesday at the 2013 State of the island Economic Summit. Clark focused her talk on economic opportunities awaiting the province from exports of B.C. natural gas.

Clark also announced there would be $15 million in upgrades to the Malahat highway. The government said 2.3 kilometres of median barrier would be added to

A potential tax loophole has Nanaimo city council thinking twice about rezoning land for a medical marijuana grow operation. U.S.-based Privateer Holdings is hoping to get land rezoned at the Duke Point industrial park to make way for its first Canadian medical marijuana production facility. Time “is of the essence” according to the company’s chief executive officer, who wants to plant a crop 90 days before Health Canada’s regulations for medical marijuana come into effect April 1. A building on the property still needs to be renovated. But Nanaimo city council isn’t prepared to allow rezoning before B.C. Assessment makes a final determination on how medical marijuana operations can be taxed. They passed the first two readings to rezone the property Monday to give city staff members time to resolve tax concerns. According to the City of Nanaimo, the assessment authority has indicated production of medical marijuana will be considered an agriculture use, but has yet to make a final decision. Mayor John Ruttan says if the city allows the company to rezone the land from I2 to I4 for marijuana production and it applies for farm status, Nanaimo could lose out on higher tax revenues. Erosion of the industrial tax base is also considered a ‘serious risk.’ Privateer Holdings has indicated interest in signing a legal document promising never to apply for agriculture status, but Nanaimo city staff have not yet found a legal method to prevent the company from changing its property designation. “We have a finite amount of industrial land available,” said Ruttan.“I can only speak for myself, but if there is a mechanism that you [Privateer Holdings] or any company can come along and apply under agriculture and get it exempt and not pay a dime in taxes, I’d have a real problem with that. This is expensive land and ... if it’s gone, we can’t get it back.” u See ‘EQUITY’ /7

Mounties aim to get bikes to owners

Police offer tips for safe halloween

By Chris Bush

Police in Nanaimo are warning drivers to watch out for little monsters on the roads and for parents to keep trick or treaters dressed and prepared for a safe night out. Halloween should be a little scary and a lot of fun, not fraught with the terrifying aftermath of a serious injury. On Halloween night hundreds of children will be sharing the roads with motor vehicles, so police are asking drivers to use extreme caution, especially during trick or treating prime time from 5-8 p.m. Excited children can suddenly dash across roads with no regard for oncoming traffic, so it’s a good idea to slow down and be prepared to hit the brakes on short notice. Parents are also asked to take the time to check over their child’s costume to make sure children can see clearly through masks, that costumes have reflective material, won’t be a tripping hazard and that kids are have proper footwear. Parents should carry flashlights with extra batteries and never allow children to venture inside the homes of strangers. If the front porch light is out on a home it usually means they are not handing out candy and it’s best to respect their wishes and not venture onto the property. Don’t blow off safety tips when it comes to fireworks, either. Since 2007 it has been illegal to possess, sell or set off fireworks in Nanaimo without a permit. The fine for breaking the bylaw is $200. Officials credit the bylaw with reducing burn injuries and the number accidental fires each year, but for those putting on a backyard pyrotechnics show it’s a good idea to keep a hose handy and avoid setting off fireworks around dry grass or wooded areas. Also be considerate of farms with horses and livestock, and neighbours with pets that can be frightened by fireworks. Fireworks should only be handled by adults, too – sober ones. Firecrackers – considered an explosive – are prohibited throughout B.C.

Cyclists who have had bikes stolen might find them in the hands of the Nanaimo RCMP. In recent months thieves have been stealing upwards of four bikes a day. Those stolen bikes are often found abandoned in ditches, tossed off to the side of the road and are even found in a few residences when police are conducting other business. Members store stolen bikes at Nanaimo RCMP detachment for up to 90 days while they try to reunite them with their owners. Bikes that have not been claimed within 90 days are turned over to Nanaimo Recycling Exchange for resale or disposal. To help return more bikes to their proper owners, two investigators have recently been assigned to deal with the ever-rising inventory of stolen bikes. “The bikes currently stored at the Nanaimo RCMP detachment are being catalogued, serial numbers searched for ownership and significant markings noted for identification purposes,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. O’Brien added that charges have been laid recently against bike theft suspects, which has caused a slight drop in bike thefts, but that decline might also be due to colder seasonal weather with bikes being put away for the winter. Anyone who has had a bike stolen is asked to call Const. Derek Segstro at 250-755-3193, Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please have the serial number for your bike handy or information particular to your bike that can help identify it. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

City wants to ban ‘barbaric’ traps

I

pRoVINCE muSt give municipalities authority on bylaw.

By Tamara Cunningham The News bulleTiN

The City of Nanaimo is counting on the provincial government to give teeth to its potential ban on “barbaric” animal traps. Nanaimo city council opted to create a municipal bylaw against the use of body-gripping traps, which politicians called a cruel practice. Councillors also agreed the municipality will no longer use traps to manage nuisance beavers. According to the City of Nanaimo, debate about trapping regulation and public safety was triggered earlier this month when hikers stumbled upon six devices on private property in Linley Valley. The traps were sanctioned to deal with a problem beaver.

Coun. Fred Pattje, who put forward the motion to ban traps, said there are other, non-lethal ways of dealing with beavers, including water flow management devices. The city can and should try to prohibit body-gripping traps, which are “too cruel a way” to deal with the animals. Coun. George Anderson felt the bid to ban was a knee-jerk reaction to public concern and wanted to wait until the city collected more information on the environmental and financial implications of the more humane management methods. City staff members have promised a report in a year on the effect of internal changes for beaver management. But the remaining eight councillors say it’s important to get started on a bylaw now. The provincial government would need to approve the bylaw and it is currently reviewing existing trapping regulations. While the city’s ban is unenforceable now, it

& LIQUOR STORE

will be joining other similar proposals put forward by Vernon, Surrey and Sechelt. “The more cities who ask the minister for this authority, the more likely I think we are to get it. I think it’s timely,” said Coun. Diane Brennan. “This is virtually a lobbying effort.” The City of Nanaimo currently doesn’t regulate or approve trapping and isn’t given notice of traps set on private property like Linley Valley. The provincial government regulates trapping activity under the Wildlife Act. There are 23 dams in the community that are monitored by the City of Nanaimo and beaver-related issues are estimated to cost the majority of a $60,000 annual budget for management of watercourses. City staff members say they did not routinely trap beavers, pointing out the last time was three years ago. Now, as a result of council’s decision, they will no longer use trapping methods at all. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Fire limited to exterior

The sharp eye of an off-duty firefighter prevented a fire in a planter box from turning into a tragedy Tuesday. The firefighter spotted the blaze at about 11:30 p.m. while driving past a home on the 2100 block of Jingle Pot Road. Ennis Mond, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer, said in an e-mail to the News Bulletin the firefighter woke up the tenants of the house and started extinguishing the flames, which had already spread into the home’s vinyl siding, until fire crews arrived. The fire was contained to the house exterior and caused no damage to the home interior and no injuries. Mond said the fire was accidentally started by what appeared to be poorly discarded smoking material. The owner of the house is insured.

District looks at washroom policy By Karl yu The News BulleTiN

imagine parents and maybe even students,” she said. School board chair Jamie Brennan said the the working group will determine the pace in which genderneutral washrooms can be provided. He said there is a specific project in the works in the district. “The re-design of the Cedar secondary school, that project will ensure that there are gender-neutral washrooms in the school when it’s repurposed as an elementary school, that’s a particular project,” said Brennan. The issue was brought to trustees in March of this year by a transgendered youth who said he faced issues over which washroom to use.

2013

The Nanaimo school district will consider adding gender-neutral washrooms in its schools. The school district board approved a motion at its meeting last week that will see a gender-neutral washroom working group established. The group will examine a Sept. 18 district staff report on the topic and make recommendations to the school board’s business committee in January. The report said genderneutral washrooms “may be feasible” as part of new construction or renovation projects. Dot Neary, school trustee and business committee chairwoman, said the issue is more complex than first

thought. A gender-neutral policy needs to be adopted, something the district is looking toward doing as well, she said. “In order to adapt existing facilities, if you’ve got new construction, I think it’s a bit more feasible to include gender-neutral [washrooms] in those facilities. But in existing facilities, I think there are all kinds of issues, that at first glance, have not necessarily been considered,” Neary said, adding the working group will look at the gender-neutral issue as a whole with recommendations on policy and how to implement it. District staff will assemble the group but Neary said it should include a number of different people. “I don’t think we really discussed it in depth but it should include a trustee, an assistant superintendent and there will be some school principals there, and facilities department representation, and I would

and robs women of healthy body image that can lead to dissatisfaction in intimate relationships. “Basically, porn is like a drug and it can lead to addiction,” Isham said. “It affects the same part of the brain that alcohol and drugs do when somebody becomes addicted.” Isham said the largest group of viewers of pornography is children age 12 to 17. “I have children as young as six years old accessing porn, sometimes intentionally and sometimes accidentally,” Isham said. “This is really because porn is so accessible – and it’s free to kids – that anybody’s child is at risk of seeing pornography. Whether they tell their parents or not is probably dependent on the type of family they have.” Isham said it’s important to for parents and caregivers to have open dialogue early and often with their children about what they’re viewing and discuss openly the hidden negative messages in media, music, fashion, advertising and other sources. Parents need to monitor what their kids are viewing and set limits on what they are allowed to view. Parents also need to educate themselves about what children are viewing, compare notes with other parents about how they monitor what their children are accessing and attend workshops that help parents understand trends in youth culture. Isham, who said she has made educating people about pornography and its effects on children her mission, is presenting Six Conversations You Must Have With Your Teen at Beban Park Social Centre, Wednesday (Nov. 6) 6:30-8:30 p.m. Admission is $25 per person.

Equity firm searching for facility to invest in u From /1 Ruttan said he does not support the legalization of marijuana and is cautious about a sanctioned medical production facility. But he would find the operation more palatable if it compensated the city fairly for industrial land. Coun. Diane Brennan said the new industry is an interesting opportunity city council might seize, but “without giving the applicant false hope that we are going to solve this tax revenue issue.” Privateer Holdings, a private equity firm for the cannabis industry, is the first to apply for medical marijuana growing in Nanaimo. The company has been looking across Canada for an entity or medical marijuana facility to invest in and found an “ideal” property at Duke Point. At the time, it didn’t realize it wasn’t zoned I4, the only kind of property medical marijuana production is allowed. Kennedy said his com-

pany likes the close proximity of Duke Point to the Lower Mainland and the relative isolation from city neighbourhoods, whose residents might be concerned about living close to a production facility. “We liked the Duke Point area and on Vancouver Island historically there are a lot of people that have been involved in this industry and there is a lot of knowledge of this industry and the product. So ... you have a skilled workforce,” said Kennedy, who hopes to offer 20 to 40 full-time jobs. The company would start growing in February so it can begin shipping to patients when Health Canada brings in its new Marijuana for Medicinal Purposes regulation in April. It will continue to look at other sites while Nanaimo contemplates the tax issue. If rezoning moves ahead, the production facility will go to a public hearing. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin 7

Nanaimo’s heroes honoured Life-saving acts earn recognition for local residents By Chris Bush The News bulleTiN

Mounties and civilians were recognized for long service, charity fundraising, community support and for saving lives at an awards ceremony last week. The event was hosted at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 256 Oct. 22 when the awards were presented by Chief Superintendent Randy Wilson, Vancouver Island district commander. Among those who received special honours were Cpl. Dave LaBerge, head of Nanaimo RCMP’s Bike Patrol Unit, who was presented with the St. John Life Saving award. LaBerge was having lunch with colleagues Sept. 29 when a man began to choke, was unable to breathe, turned blue and collapsed. LaBerge quickly applied several abdomi-

nal thrusts to the victim to clear the obstruction from the man’s wind pipe. The victim started breathing and regained consciousness. LaBerge was commended for his quick action and use of first aid to save the man’s life. Constables Keihin Herault and Nick Fleming were each presented with a certificate of appreciation for physically intervening to save the life of a suicidal woman in February. Matthew Lettington of Nanaimo and an offduty constable from North Cowichan/Duncan detachment were also each presented with the St. John Life Saving Award for their role in resuscitating a man found unconscious and not breathing in downtown Nanaimo on March 9. Cpl. Norm Smith, head of Nanaimo RCMP Traffic Services, was presented with the Commanding Officer’s Commendation for Outstanding Service in recognition for volunteer service in the com-

munity throughout his 24-year career. In 1995 Smith organized an old-timers’ hockey game to raise money for new equipment for Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, rooms for grieving families and medical scholarships. Smith served as a celebrity waiter to raise money for the SPCA and Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock and the Canadian Cancer Society through various fundraisers, which has included perching himself atop a

scissor lift. He has volunteered as a motorcycle escort since 2007 and as a support crew member and fundraiser for Tour de Rock, which raises cash to battle pediatric cancer. Smith has also organized fundraisers and partnerships supporting Special Olympics and the Nanaimo Child Development Centre and also leads a high school program that teaches students about the dangers of drinking and driving. Matt Wilson, of Nanaimo, is a civilian presented with a certificate of appreciation for his role in helping police reel in suspects of a string of 28 known thefts of cigarettes from Costco customers across B.C. that totalled nearly $100,000 in lost merchandise. On Dec. 5, 2012, Wilson reported the vehicle and licence plate number of a van associated to the thefts. The information ultimately led to the arrest and conviction of a suspect in the case. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Ali Baba celebrates Nanaimo location with free pizza! One thing that really sets us apart is our crust. We use a unique bread dough, for a hearty crust similar to a freshbaked artisan bread. We also recognize that options are important so we make a Multigrain crust with flax seeds for the health conscious, a thin, crispy Italian for the connoisseur, and a gluten-free crust for the wheatfree folks. Whether you like a thick New York-style crust or a thin, Italian-style pizza, the options are all delicious!

Ali Baba Pizza is looking forward to the opening of their newest location, in Nanaimo’s Bowen Centre.

The news Nanaimo pizza fans have been waiting for has arrived – Ali Baba Pizza is opening its first Nanaimo location next week at Bowen Centre, near Beban Park! To get all the details about what this news means for locals, we chatted with Ali Baba’s Mark Murr. Q. Why was the time right to bring Ali Baba Pizza to Nanaimo? A. Ali Baba Pizza is a Victoria-based, family-run business employing close to 100 people across the south Island. Believing in slow, controlled growth rather than global domination, we love our Island lifestyle and feel continued success requires bringing our unique

pizza further north. With our Duncan location such a huge success, it just made sense to continue on to Nanaimo. Q. What sets Ali Baba apart from other pizzerias? A. Most pizzerias make the same claims: fresh, fast, cheap. Our recipes go back to 1986 when founder Georges Murr opened the first Ali Baba Pizza in a little storefront in Victoria. Our staff start early each morning preparing fresh dough, mixing sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes and chopping local veggies to generously top your pizza.

Q. For people who haven’t tried Ali Baba pizza during their visits to Victoria or Duncan, what should they expect? A. The first thing most people notice is our friendly staff. We love what we do and when you’re proud of the product you serve, it shows. Most first-time customers are also blown away by the incredible value as they enjoy a HUGE slice of pizza (1/4 of an XL pizza) for only $5 – we serve the cheapest lunch in town!

Q. Do you have an opening date set? Any special plans to celebrate? A. We are excited to announce our Grand Opening Friday. Nov. 8! Stop by our new Nanaimo location to enjoy a free slice of pizza from 12 to 4 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. We look forward to meeting the local community and showing the people of Nanaimo what a treat they’re in for. Q. You have a great central location, but for those who prefer to order from home, will you deliver? A. We chose Bowen Centre for its central location and easy access. We will be open for slices, take-out and delivery orders from 10:30 a.m. to late night, with deliveries throughout Nanaimo. In addition, Ali Baba Pizza specializes in office, business and school deliveries starting during the day, understanding that office and school deliveries take expert timing. We can’t wait to cater your next event or meeting!

EDITORIAL

Take sober look at pot zoning Taking a sobering look at rezoning for a medical marijuana operation was a responsible move by Nanaimo city council. Nanaimo heard this week that Privateer Holdings and its Canadian company Lafitte Ventures Ltd., want a Duke Point property rezoned to I4, which is the only kind of zoning that permits sanctioned medical marijuana operations. But there are still unanswered questions about whether the company will be able to apply for agriculture status with B.C. Assessment and if that potential loophole can be closed by the City of Nanaimo. The designation would allow the company to pay significantly lower taxes than its neighbours in the Duke Point industrial park. That doesn’t seem like a good deal for Nanaimo. Industrial medical marijuana operations are just starting in this country as a result of new Health Canada regulations, but it stands to reason the industry could become big business. If companies like Lafitte Ventures believe Nanaimo’s industrial parks are ideal locations to put these new operations, they should pay a fair share of the taxes. This company is the first operation to apply to set up within Nanaimo’s boundaries and has indicated it’s interested in signing a deal never to apply for agriculture status, but the city hasn’t yet been able to find a way to create a legal contract. Unless the city has long-term guarantees the company won’t be taxed as agriculture, it would seem rezoning would set a worrisome precedent for other medical marijuana producers looking to set up within an industrial park. The medical marijuana industry will no doubt present opportunities to the community, adding to the diversity of the local economy and new jobs. But the last thing we need is a shrinking industrial tax base. The city is right to proceed with caution.

enterprises. But he does detail the disastrous effects of passive resource wealth bestowed on impoverished aboriginal communities, and contrasts it with the success stories of reserves that build their own enterprises through hard work. On public sector pensions: Milke notes that historically, public employees traded higher wages for better benefits and job security. Now their wages are generally higher, and taxpayers have to cover their personal pension contributions (as a portion of those wages) as well as the employer contributions, plus the “defined benefit” payout, which has to be subsidized far beyond what the pension fund can support. On the debt-financed welfare state, there are memorable observations, like this one: “For the record, the generous Quebec welfare state and its ostensibly more progressive model are paid for in part with the taxes of other Canadians; Quebec is merely the North American equivalent of Greece.” The recent B.C. political crisis over adoption of the harmonized sales tax showed that there is too much emotion and too little knowledge about how taxes work. This book is a step toward addressing that. u Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Nanaimo News Bulletin 9

Consider alternatives to incineration To the Editor,

Incinerators have been presented to Nanaimo as a benefit to the community. Please consider that incinerators are more expensive to build and operate than true alternative energy sources like wind and solar. Recycling creates 10 times or more jobs than incineration because recycling requires more sorting of materials and more processes to turn recyclables into new materials. Incineration retards the movement to create a true zero-waste society, because of the fact that incinerators need waste to burn.

There are better alternatives: mixed material recovery facilities, anaerobic digestion facilities, monofill, redesigning/reducing/ recycling packaging. These processes change the whole concept of waste, compared with the need to feed the machine. Cities have fallen deep into debt, even bankruptcy because of their incinerators. Detroit’s $500 million facility finally cost the city $1 billion because the city was not generating sufficient waste to meet contract obligations. Other municipalities filed for bankruptcy for the same reason.

Compared to other options, incinerators are a very poor choice. Say no to the incinerator.

David Wang Nanaimo

Incinerator towns not worth visiting To the Editor,

Garbage burning is an unquestionable bad choice. Transporting, barging and storing of waste is costly and environmentally unbecoming. Incinerators emit carbon dioxide and produce toxic ash that needs to be landfilled. Burning discharges in the air toxic dioxins, mercury and cad-

mium and other nanoparticles that make a joke of even the most sophisticated filtration systems. This likelihood of our children and young people getting slowly poisoned over time or prospects of having property values #40 swiftly plunging is indisputably not funny. Visitors and the cruise ship tours will not find a garbage incinerator town a worthwhile attraction. Vancouver Island residents should voice their opposition on this important matter by contacting city councillors.

To the Editor, Re: Councillor calls for theatre cost review, Oct. 24. The free lunch servings continue at city council. And the rest of us keep picking up the tab at the all-you-can-eat buffet. At the Oct. 21 funding dispersal a whole bunch of councillors said they did not think giving away $34,700 of your money is a big deal, voting to give this sum to Nanaimo Centre Stage for further repair work, costs the Nanaimo Ratepayers Association say could eventually end up running into the millions of dollars. And keep in mind these are for new repair costs in addition to the taxpayer funding already given for other repairs and upkeep since the city purchased the 120-year-old building five years ago – a building which was bought with $460,000 of your public tax

2013

Time to lower the curtain on Centre Stage money but is only assessed at half that value. Even more disturbing is theatre president Camela Tang, having the highfalutin attitude of refusing to help do any fundraising, saying it’s the city’s responsibility. The building was bought for the organization by taxpayers and the theatre groups get to occupy and use it for free and even get paid by the city to manage it. A city hall watcher said each week, council doles out $100,000 of our money in gifts, grants, exemptions and other discretionary funds to all those who simply come knocking. So remember that, fellow Nanaimoites, when you’re in the poor house or heading to the food bank.

City hall must stop offering funding to anyone who comes knocking, says letter writer.

Dam repair costs don’t sound like a very good deal To the Editor,

Re: Council approves dam remediation process, Letters, Oct. 24. Local newspapers are failing to provide all the information in their coverage of the Colliery dams issue. As a ratepayer, I’m concerned with the costs involved. The only estimates of dam repair are still reported as those of Klohn Crippen Berger, the company that was expecting to do the work. It claimed it would cost about $7.5 million to knock the dams down and build new ones, but between $12 and $30

million to repair them. Local engineers and workmen who have worked on other dams on the Chase River report total project costs of less than $500,000 each. Westwood Lake holds over three times the volume of water held by both Colliery dams. It’s also above a residential area, and a direct earthquake would have same effect or worse. It was brought up to code (presumably) three years ago for less than $500,000. An astute business person on council might figure out when we are being had

and give KBR its walking papers. We presume actual estimates and repair work will be widely tendered.

focus on remediation of the Colliery dams. Sadly the community is still being bombarded with inflated costs. Krohn Crippen Berger’s report only looked at five options towards remediation, eliminating a number of others. By continuing to bandy about costs of remediation in the tens of millions of dollars simply promotes added and unneeded controversy in efforts to save this valuable resource for future generations of Nanaimoites to enjoy.

is better. Behind the grille are “active shutters” that close at higher speeds to help send the wind around the vehicle to improve aerodynamic efficiency. The same idea was also behind the longer side step, which helps reduce buffeting down the side of the trucks. One option that I find fascinating, and would seriously consider, is the $1500 air suspension that can be lowered for easier entry into the RAM or loading into the bed. Plus this system automatically lowers over 100km/h to also reduce aerodynamic drag. At lower speeds and for off-road duties, the air suspension can be raised for better ground clearance. Having had a chance to drive several RAM trucks with this feature I notice the already smooth ride is even better and the cabin is further insulated from vibration. Inside In the past trucks were typically used for work. Today, trucks have grown in popularity because they can be rugged on a work site and luxurious for all occupants. Having driven the Ford and new GM trucks recently, I can easily say that RAM still has the lead in interior design and finish with the Chevrolet and GMC right behind.

The full-size truck market is big business for automakers and a big deal for the businesses and people who depend on them. For almost five decades the Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck, with little chance they will lose that crown in the near future. What has been happening, over the last few years, is a strong shift from General Motors to RAM in terms of establishing the second best selling truck brand. The rise in RAM popularity can be traced back to a few key changes over the last several years, from muscular styling to class-leading interiors, a refined ride, plus engine and transmission advancements. I drove the 2014 RAM model range recently, on a beautiful fall day, just outside of Toronto. The “RAM Roundup” was a great opportunity to get my hands on these new trucks well before they arrive at BC dealerships.

Always shooting for the perfect drive BY KEITH MORGAN

Ross Bentley, left, coaches upcoming young racer Colin Braun.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Don’t turn into a pumpkin,

I keep hearing TV F1 commentary teams talking about the perfect race in relation to the now four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel. As I watched the German driver for Infiniti-Red Bull race team take the chequered flag in India on Sunday, the repeated reference to his perfect race reminded me of another open-wheel racer. Back in the early 1990s, Vancouver Indy racer Ross Bentley strived for what he called the ‘Perfect Drive’, not on the track but on the

YOUR CHARIOT AWAITS

roads of B.C. Ross, now coaching race drivers and street drivers in Washington state, always told me that he found the racetrack a safer place to drive. On the track he pretty much knew what other drivers were going to do, whereas drivers on the street were very unpredictable. And I was reminded of that the other morning when a young driver whizzed by me in the curb lane, then cut in front and crossed two more lanes to turn left at an intersection just a block ahead. Of course, he didn’t signal when he got there either! Ross devised a little game that he played every day while travelling to and from work across town. The Perfect Drive Concept was designed to help drivers concentrate and I can’t help it would a great game for us all to play some 20 years on from when he first outlined the idea to me. “The idea is to drive smoothly at a constant speed with minimal braking,” explains Ross, who tells me he still tries to achieve the Perfect Drive daily. “To do so, you must anticipate light changes and ease off when you approach a stale green. You have to slow in such a way that if your passengers had their eyes closed they wouldn’t be aware of the exact point you stopped.” Keeping a healthy distance between your car and the one you are following is key. Others do cut into the space but they disappear as fast as they arrive. And

‘‘

Keith Morgan

even if you ease off to open it up the gap again, Ross figured if even 10 cars did that to you and stayed during the average trip you might lose a minute in travel time. “The Perfect Drive can be ruined by others so I try to figure out what crazy things they might do and adjust accordingly. If I have to brake jerkily in anticipation of the other driver’s move, I don’t deduct any points!” However, if you hold up traffic or disrupt the flow then you deduct points. If you can let somebody in smoothly or provide an opportunity for somebody else to turn then you’re assisting the flow so he figured that was worth a few bonus points.” “The Perfect Drive can be different for everybody and you can work out your own scoring technique. I keep it simple and figure if I drop four points then that was nowhere near the Perfect Drive. I love his final comment: “Oh, and if you drop a point halfway through, you don’t give up and drive the rest of the way like a jerk.” Give it a try, it’s fun. keith.morgan @drivewaybc.ca

The car that conquered the world BY BOB McHUGH Toyota Corolla 2010 to 2012 More than 30 million Corollas had already been produced when an all-new a tenth-generation 2009 Toyota Corolla hit the streets with a new body and chassis, increased interior space, more power and a revised suspension system. It isn’t about what a Corolla does, it’s about what a Corolla doesn’t do – stop working. In fact, Corolla could be a substitute for the word ‘durable’ in the dictionary. While the competition has certainly made great strides to improved product quality, Corolla is still the benchmark and consumer confidence in this compact car is reflected in used prices. Ironically, from a used car buyer perspective, it may also be its biggest drawback ... good luck with finding a good used Toyota Corolla at a bargain price. The 2009 Corolla came in CE, S, LE and XRS trim levels. The highline Corolla LE added power windows and locks, climate control air conditioning, a 4-speed automatic transmission, a wood-grain interior trim package, a push-button keyless start system and more. Most Corolla models come

with a 1.8-litre (132-horsepower) engine and the base versions came with a smooth-shifting five-speed manual with a light, easy to operate clutch. A four speed automatic was the optional transmission and fuel economy is excellent, with a 7.5/5.6 L/100 km city/highway rating. The sporty Corolla XRS offered a bigger engine, better brakes and tires plus other stuff. Powered by a 2.4-litre (158-horsepower) engine it came with 17inch tires on alloy wheels, electronic stability control, traction control, rear disc brakes and a strut tower brace. It was also the only

version with a 5-speed automatic option. On the inside, this Corolla is roomier than the previous generation, with more shoulder room, legroom and trunk storage space. A tilt/telescoping steering column was standard on all trim levels and it came with two glove boxes, as seemingly past owners had complained about a lack of cabin storage space. Almost all Corolla models come with the same safety features, which includes six airbags and the front seats come with active head restraints. An anti-lock brake system is also standard, but only the XRS trim has electronic stability control and traction control. Stability control was included as standard on S and LE trim levels and optional on CE, in 2010. In 2011, stability control was made a standard feature on all Corolla trim levels. It also got a minor styling revamp, which included new headlights, grille, front and rear bumpers, taillights and trunk lid. No significant changes in 2012, other than some re-packaging of options offered. The Toyota Corolla has a loyal consumer following who appreciate the finer virtue of this car – outstanding product quality. bob.mchugh @drivewaybc.ca

PRO or CON

The Toyota Corolla, XRS model shown, boasts excellent fuel economy. Recalls on the 2009 to 2012 Toyota Corolla: 2009 - Due to improperly applied grease, the driver’s side power window master switch may stick or become inoperative. 2009/2010 – The trunk lid may begin to close after it has been opened. 2009/2010 - Accelerator pedal movement may become rough, slow to return, or the pedal may stick in a depressed position. 2009/2010 - The accelerator pedal may become stuck in the wide open position due to an unsecured or incompatible driver’s floor mat. 2009/2010 - In extremely low ambient temperatures, the intake manifold suction port for the brake vacuum can become blocked due to freezing of condensation.

Green Car of the Year about to be revealed

The Honda Accord is in the running for the Green Car of the Year.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Green Car Journal has identified its five finalists for the magazine’s highprofile 2014 Green Car of the Year program. The five 2014 models include the Audi A6 TDI, BMW 328d, Honda Accord, Mazda3, and Toyota Corolla. These five finalists are also honoured as Green Car Journal’s Top 5 Green Cars for 2014. An increasing number of vehicle models are considered for the program each year, a reflection of the auto industry’s expanding efforts in offering new vehicles with higher efficiency and improved environmental impact.

Green Car Journal has been honouring the most important “green” vehicles every year at the LA Auto Show, since its inaugural award announced at the show in 2005. “The diversity of this field of finalists illustrates not only that ‘green’ has gone mainstream, but also that there is no single approach to achieving ever higher levels of fuel efficiency and environmental performance,” says Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange. com. “There’s something for everyone in this year’s field of finalists, including clean diesel, high efficiency gasoline,

and hybrid/plug-in hybrid power featured in mainstream, sporty, and executive models.” Finalists are selected for their achievements in raising the bar in environmental performance. Availability to the mass market is a factor to ensure honored models have the potential to make a real difference in environmental impact, and finalists must be available for sale by Jan. 1 of the award year. Green Car of the Year jurors include auto enthusiast and host Jay Leno, plus leaders of the nation’s major environmental organizations.

Porsche opens up Vancouver dealership An all-new, multi-million-dollar Porsche dealership has been opened in Vancouver by the Dilawri Automotive Group of Companies. The sole Porsche Centre located in Vancouver is led by dealer principal Ajay Dilawri, who welcomed guests at the formal grand opening ceremony. “Beautiful sights are synonymous with Vancouver and this new Porsche Centre is another great example,” said Bernhard Maier, Porsche AG board member. “This building is a great foundation to offer an exclusive purchase and ownership experience as well as foster the appreciation for the brand.” “Vancouver is an important and growing part of Canada,” added Alexander Pollich, Porsche Canada’s president and CEO.

ROB MICKELBERRY’S JOURNEY TO THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY

U

Crazy!

After nearly a year travelling on a “rock star” bus from one end of North America to another, Rob Mickelberry, his wife and three children were ready to re-establish permanent roots back home in Victoria. “We bought a property while we were on the road,” says Rob, “then lived in the old house while we sub-divided the lot and built a new home that would be ours.” Because Rob wanted the home – completed in May 2013 – “for the long haul,” he was determined it would not cost a fortune to run.

?

Rob Mickelberry

By calling in certified energy advisors City Green Solutions early in the design process, Rob was able to build-in a number of refinements – including an air source heat pump, triple glazing, a heat recovery ventilation system and extra insulation – that resulted in the home achieving a remarkable EnerGuide 88 rating from Natural Resources Canada.

Drives-U-Crazy. . .

That makes it, says Mike Young of City Green, “approximately 59 per cent more energy efficient than if this home had been built to BC Building Code standards.” It will also save Rob an estimated $1,500 to $1,800 a year on his energy bills.

Icing on the cake: the high EnerGuide rating also qualified Rob for $2,000 in incentives from the BC Hydro Power Smart New Home Program, and he’s eligible for the ENERGY STAR® Package incentive of $150 per home for installing qualified energy-efficient lighting and appliances.

(nee Herchak)

Our beloved mother, stepmother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin and friend passed September 22, 2013 at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. She was born on November 3, 1954 in Shoal Lake, Manitoba.

Linda was raised in Calgary where she attended St. Francias high school. Later she attended the University of Lethbridge, then Olds College. At Olds College Linda found her passion in horticulture. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree in Linda’s case as her family roots were well set in gardens and fields. Linda’s passion sent her to Victoria, where she was employed at Royal Roads Military College tending the beautiful landscapes. It was in those gardens where Linda was married to Larry Warde, with her step-daughter Tina Warde as her flower girl. Later Linda moved to Nanaimo and had her children, Tyler and Jaime Warde. Linda was a committed volunteer at Chase River Elementary where her children attended, and she would often volunteer time in her community. For Linda, knowing the difference between right from wrong was natural; and it was those values Linda shared with everyone she touched. Sitting, reading her book, Linda would almost be waiting for you to query her, then thoughtfully she would give you a really honest answer – never fail. Linda had a way of telling you what you needed to hear. Linda is survived and missed by her son, Tyler Warde; her daughter, Jaime Warde; her step-daughter, Tina Henderson (nee Warde); her father, James Herchak; her brother, Pat Herchak; her sisters, Ellen Bessala (nee Herchak) and Jackie Smith (nee Herchak). Linda will be embraced by her mother, Helen Herchak (nee Dutkywich) and her brother, Terry Herchak who predeceased her. “We don’t have control over what happens to us, but we do have control over how we respond...Live bravely.” A Celebration of Life (open house) will be held on November 2, 2013 at the family home beginning at noon.

December 25, 1931 - October 7, 2013

Passed peacefully at Dufferin Place in Nanaimo BC. Born the youngest of 3 children to William James and Morna Aileen, in Comox BC. Survived by his 1st wife, Laura (nee Lemberg) and their 5 children: Jeff (Mary), Janice, Gerald, John, Joanne; one grandchild, Karina; his brother, Jim (Joyce); numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his 2nd wife, Evelyn (nee Ward) and his sister, Margaret. Noted for his sense of humour, generous nature and positive attitude, he will be greatly missed by family and friends. A celebration of Dad's life will be held November 16th at 2pm in the Cedar Hall, 2388 Cedar Rd., Nanaimo. In lieu of flowers, donations in his name may be made to BC Cancer Society or the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital Palliative Care Unit.

Tustian, Barbara McKnead July 17, 1924 – October 14, 2013

It is with heartfelt family love that we say goodbye to our mother and grannie, Barbara McKnead Tustian (nee Fleming). Barbara was born in Greenock, Scotland. She met and married our dad and granddad, Royal Canadian Navy Seaman, William Reid Tustian, in 1944 at the height of WWII. She raised her family in East Vancouver before retiring to Vancouver Island in 1995. She is survived by her children: Margaret (Don), Bob (Pipi), Wayne (Cherryl) along with ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In her passing she has been, at last, reunited with her eldest son, Ken and her husband, Bill. Barbara loved her family and she will continue to be a model of strength, courage, good sense and good humour for all of us. At her request there will be no public service. Please instead, toast her life with a cup of tea and hug the ones you love. Our thanks to the caring and dedicated staff of Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, VIHA and Lakeside Gardens.

V.I. Raiders’ veterans try for perfect ending BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Braydon Luscombe skis the slalom at an event at Sestriere alpine village at Turin, Italy. Luscombe has reached the qualifying standards for the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games and is expected to officially be named to Team Canada.

Skier knows no limitations Braydon Luscombe expects to make Paralympic Games BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

B

raydon Luscombe is at his fastest on one ski, hurtling down a hill. But when he comes back down from the mountain, he’s still active and athletic and ambitious and he needs his prosthetic leg to be able to keep up. “This whole business of prosthetics, it’s not just to get someone a leg so they can walk,” he said. “It’s so they can do absolutely everything they want to do, or need to do.” The 20-year-old aspiring Paralympian is from Duncan, but has been coming to Nanaimo’s B.D. Mitchell Prosthetic and Orthotic Services as long as he can remember. At age five, Luscombe lost his right leg to flesh-eating disease, a complication of an infection from chicken pox. He’s never allowed his handicap to hobble him. “Right from the beginning, he wanted to ride his bike to the beach and with the same leg, negotiate rocks down to the shoreline and go swimming and then get back on the bike,” said prosthetist Bryan Mitchell. So whether Luscombe was subjecting his artificial leg to salt water, or jarring the components, or busting a bearing, he was certainly getting every step’s worth.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Braydon Luscombe consults with Bryan Mitchell of Nanaimo’s B.D. Mitchell Prosthetic and Orthotic Services.

B.D. Mitchell has fitted him with six or seven prosthetic legs over the years, some more waterproof than others, some with titanium shocks, even one with flames painted on the side. “He always sort of maximized the potential of any prosthetics that we could create for him,” Mitchell said. And Luscombe is still determining maximum potential. As a member of Canada’s para-alpine national team, he’s been getting faster and faster and is all but

assured of skiing in the Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia, this coming winter. The Games have been a dream for a long time, he said. Former Paralympic skier Gord Tuck, from Lake Cowichan, was a family friend and a childhood inspiration. Luscombe has always been comfortable on one ski – it’s the only way he’s ever known. It’s taken him to the world’s greatest ski resorts, down a mountain at 125 kilometres an hour, and in a few months, to a summit in Sochi. That thought has driven his training to new heights. He wants to know, when he’s at the top of that hill, that he did everything he possibly could to be at his best. That’s meant practice, weight training, cycling and generally putting a whole lot of kilometres on his prosthetic leg. Luscombe never complains of limitations, said Mitchell, so the prosthetist tries to be proactive and look for ways to help his client improve performance. “Because he’s motivated, we’re motivated…” Mitchell said. “We’re proud to know that we’ve had the chance to work with him and we’re all rooting for him.” It’s the “ultimate dream,” Luscombe said, to go to the Paralympics and do well. “That’s what you’ve been working for … to wait for that minute you have on that course. It’s a huge buildup and if it produces something good, [it would be] a crazy good feeling.” sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The V.I. Raiders make it to the Canadian Bowl more often than most teams, but even still, they know that these opportunities are fleeting, rare, special. The Raiders will play for a Canadian Junior Football League championship Nov. 9 in Saskatchewan against the Regina Thunder. “It’s the perfect way to go out, I guess, you can’t ask for anything better,” said Whitman Tomusiak, V.I. receiver, who is in his final year of junior. “It’s interesting, too, that it’s back in Saskatchewan. I get a chance to sort of redeem myself.” The last time Nanaimo made it to the Canadian Bowl was 2010, Tomusiak’s rookie season, when the Raiders lost 34-23 to the Saskatoon Hilltops on the Prairies. That was offensive lineman Tyler Oldendorf’s first year on the Island, too, and as he gears up for his last game in the black, white and red, he recalls the lessons of that 2010 loss. “It gives you that hunger, that desire to get back there, and when you do get back there you don’t want to lose it again,” he said. For some players, the journey back to the big bowl game has been a few years in the making, but really, this is about the 2013 group. At camp the Raiders had youth, talent and potential, and over the course of the season, they became a team, then contenders, then champions. “I thought we were going to be a championship team coming into the year and I still believed it when we were 1-2 and I’ll believe it now that we’re going to a national championship,” Oldendorf said. When you do The Raiders are winning right now, he get back there said, because they’re simply playing really you don’t want good football. They to lose it again. believe in each other and trust one another. If they continue to do those things in Regina, that should be enough. “I’m just going to go out and play how I’ve always played and whatever happens, happens,” Oldendorf said. Tomusiak said it’s a bit of different feel reaching this game in his final season, now as a captain, leader and star player. “When it really comes down to it, I play the exact same position where I started as a rookie, so my job’s still the same,” he said. “I expect a lot of myself – I did back then, too – but I’m going to prepare really hard this week and next week and I expect to play really well.” As the Raiders head to their fifth Canadian Bowl in their nine-year history, they have cagey veterans, leading brash, brave teammates who haven’t learned that they’re supposed to be daunted by bowl games. Together they’ve won 10 straight football games and they don’t intend to lose now. “It’s probably going to be a close game. I don’t really see a huge favourite in it; I don’t know who’s the underdog,” Tomusiak said. “I think we’re somewhat equal teams going into it and it’s just going to come down to who plays better on the day … I think our chances are really good.” GAME ON … The Canadian Bowl will be played Nov. 9 at Mosaic Stadium in Regina at 2 p.m. Central Time, noon Pacific.

JR. A hockey team to play three games in three days.

This road trip will tell the Shipmen a lot about where they stand in their division. The Nanaimo Clippers (8-80-1) play three games in three days this coming weekend, playing the Powell River Kings on Friday (Nov. 1) and Saturday before taking on the Cowichan Valley Capitals on Sunday. The Kings (13-2-0-1) are first in the Island Division – and the B.C. Hockey League – and the Caps (10-9-0-1) sit second on the Island. “As long as we play our game, we can play with anybody,” said Korey Morgan, Clippers forward. “When we’re on, we’re really on and everybody’s going.” The Clips have shown they can skate with the league’s elite. “You’ve really got to be ready when you’re playing the top team like that,” Morgan said. “I think we’re really pumped up to play with good teams.”

The Clippers and Kings played each other early this season, a game that the Clippers led in the third period before falling 6-4. “The last time we played them it was a close game. They scored mostly on our mistakes,” said Devin Brosseau, an alternate captain on the Clippers. “So we’re going to try to play mistakefree hockey and just keep our

work ethic going.” It should be simple enough for the Shipmen to find motivation, he said. “They’re first in the BCHL, they’re second in the country, so obviously you’re kind of pumped,” said Brosseau. “You want to beat them; you want to bring them back to earth.” Next home action for the Clippers isn’t until Nov. 8. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

That means setting goals, like limiting yardage and points against. “We hang our hat on our defence and it’s going to be ready to go,” said Stevenson. “Fangs will be bared.” If his team lets up against NDSS, he said, then it’s doing a poor job of playoff preparation. “We’re going to play our guys just like we always do and try to get as close as we can to the perfect Barsby game.” GAME ON … The Kocher Classic kicks off Friday (Nov. 1) at 1:45 p.m. The Island’s at Merle Logan Field.

It’s turned out that there’s plenty to play for in the last regular-season game of the fall. The John Barsby Bulldogs and the Nanaimo District Islanders AA varsity football teams close out their schedules by playing each other in the annual Kocher Classic game this Friday (Nov. 1). Barsby (5-0) finished first in B.C. High School Football’s AA Western Conference, while NDSS (2-3) will miss the post-season. So the Kocher Classic is a playoff warmup for the Bulldogs and one last chance to take to the turf for the Isles. “Physically this game is going to be as tough or tougher than any we’ve played this year,” said Rob Stevenson, Barsby coach. “They’re

Students take Shakespeare to steampunk era

I H

VIU THEATRE gives audiences Taming of the Shrew. BY SHARI BISHOP BOWES

ead backstage with Vancouver Island University’s Theatre students as they prepare for their upcoming production of Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, and you’ll get a healthy dose of debate over the play’s controversial ending, along with a visual feast of set décor and costumes from another era. “It’s steampunk meets commedia dell’arte in our adaptation of Shakespeare’s most outrageous comedy,” said Leon Potter, theatre professor and director of the 15 students involved in the play. Potter and his cast and crew began rehearsals in early October in preparation for opening night of The Taming of the Shrew in VIU’s Malaspina Theatre Nov. 7. Evening and

matinee performances run until Nov. 16. The audience can expect an adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew that marries the hot trend of a retro-futuristic steampunk design aesthetic with the comic elements and masked characters represented in 16th century commedia dell’arte. “It’s a visually stunning time period, and a really interesting genre to work in,” said Potter, who thought it would be interesting to depict the play’s controversial ending in the steampunked Victorian era known for its buttoned-up social mores and suffragette movement. The play, for those who may have missed its reading in high school, focuses on two sisters in the Italian city of Padua who must be married off. The modest, demure Bianca has no shortage of suitors, while the ‘shrewish’ Katherina leaves the audience wondering who might ever agree to marry a woman so bold and ungov-

ernable. The gold-digging Petruchio, as maddeningly strong willed and perverse as Katherina herself, is presented as a suitor who may well be equal to the task of bullying her to the altar. Potter spent the early days of rehearsals with his cast and crew working through a script that, taken in the way many believe Shakespeare intended, explores relationships and an ending that are anything but obvious. “It always struck me that the play wasn’t about the submission of a woman and a ‘taming of a shrew’,” said Potter. “What

we discovered in rehearsal is that Petruchio was actually shielding Kate from the society that she’s surrounded in.” Theatre student Tom Favreau, who plays Petruchio’s servant Grumio, found working through the early stages of rehearsals interesting and thought provoking. “I’m looking at it in a totally different way than I was before. It just opens up a lot more ways to interpret the entire play.” With a thoughtful, spirited interpretation of the 16th century classic by its cast, professional set design by Vancouver’s Brian Ball and costumes by Theatre program alumna Michelle Kuzilla-Spoor, The Taming of the Shrew is sure to present an evening of great entertainment followed by some interesting debate on the drive home. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors, and are available at the Malaspina Theatre Box Office, or may be reserved at 250-7406100.

After more than two decades of putting pen to paper, Gabriola poet Naomi Beth Wakan has become well-versed in the art of self-expression. Now the 82-year-old wordsmith hopes to inspire others to discover their creative outlets. Meet Nanaimo’s first ever poet laureate. Wakan, an established poet and essayist, was picked last week from seven contenders to officially become the people’s poet. She became a frontrunner early on for the quality of her work and the sheer volume of books she’s had published, said Kim Smythe, member of the selection committee. At last count, Wakan had 50 titles. As the city’s new cultural ambassador, Wakan will now spend a three-year term adding poetic flair to major events and showcasing creative and cultural community. It’s a job Wakan is surprised to get, but she said she’s enthusiastic about the new tasks. “I did tell [the committee] I may be dead before the contract is up ... so they know what they are getting with an 82-year-old lady,” she said, laughing. “[But] I am always full of wild ideas.” The Gabriola poet hopes to showcase Nanaimo in a positive light and introduce the community to its creative talent. Wakan said she can think of at least 20 poets who could have been just as suitable to be the city’s first poet laureate and plans to introduce them to the city. ◆ See ‘POET’ /B4

Chamber music festival returns to era of romanticism, mystery

I

Two-dAy evenT happens downtown Friday and saturday. By Beth hendry-yim The News bulleTiN

Internationally renowned performers, Sacabuche open the Vancouver Island Chamber Music Festival with a signature performance of early Baroque and late Renaissance masterpieces. Sacabuche , a premiere sackbut and violin ensemble, based at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music’s Early Music Institute, perform a lesser-known repertoire of baroque trombones, organ and voice. Winners of the 2009 Early Music America Collegium Musicum grant competition, they have headlined standing-roomonly events in China and the United States and have been voted and reviewed as presenting flawless performances. Sacabuche performs Friday (Nov. 1) at 7 p.m. In its third year, the annual festival, produced by the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music, boasts two days of varied chamber performances featuring local and visiting professional musicians this weekend (Nov. 1-2). “It’s an amazing opportu-

nity, not just for the audience but for the downtown core,” said Alexis Deighton Harrison, marketing and communication for the conservatory, adding that the annual event offers a special experience with an impressive line up of talent. Under the direction of Pippa Williams, the festival this year promises to transport audiences to an earlier time of romanticism, mystery and vibrant music as well as introduce contemporary compositions. Saturday’s line up of artists includes, young mezzosoprano Kristin Hoff. Her voice, heard at many of the world’s most coveted venues, like Carnegie Hall and Boston Pops, has been reviewed as combining both body and beauty. Currently, she is a resident artist with the Vancouver Opera. Twin Shores Trombone Quartet presents a brass extravaganza showcasing the works of J.S. Bach, and Victoria-based contemporary composer Ian MacDougall. For the evening performance, under the direction of violinist Karl Rainer, the Sonora String Quartet will bring the audience back to the 21st century with Phillip Glass’ otherworldly String Quartet No. 5.

publishing house in Vancouver and eventually retired to Gabriola. They took risks on things they were curious about, not knowing if they would pan out, she said. “You just have to

trust the process and if you fall on your face – and we have been broke – you just adapt,” she said. Wakan said she never imagined she’d be where she is today as an

established author and the city’s first poet laureate. She is grateful to those that put her name forward. Coun. Fred Pattje, chairman of the cultural committee, is looking forward to seeing how the new poet laureate position works. Other communities have their own poets to help draw attention to culture and generate pride of place and that “is something we can do here,” he said. “I think cultural activities in this municipality are underestimated and we have a huge pool of talent in this city,” he said. “I think a poet laureate could ... help expose some of that.” The poet laureate position will be a three-year trial and pays $1,000 annually. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Burlesque mashes up holidays

I

Show offeRS Halloween and Christmas.

Naughty and Spice burlesque troupe decided to mash up the holidays to create a show that offers something for everyone. Since the troupe’s inception in 2009, the girls of Naughty and Spice worked tirelessly to make their Halloween show the event of the season, with preparations often beginning in the spring or early summer. “On our second year as a troupe we started planning in April,” said Roxee Lee, founding member. “We laughed at first thinking that it was just way too early, but the planning paid off and

we put on a great show. Since then, we’ve always started planning well in advance.” This year, however, inspiration came with a twist. “Halloween is great,” said Luscious Lottabottom, with a roll of her eyes. “But I love Christmas, and the two are just too close together for us to plan two separate theatre shows. This year though, I wasn’t gonna let my dream of a big Christmas show slip away.” A simple crossover, half Halloween, half Christmas, soon became a full-on mashup with holiday tropes and glitter flying through the air, until the Nightmare Before Christmas was born. Well received by the public so far with VIP tables quickly selling

out, the girls anticipate a great show. A concession will be on hand and there will be both a Halloween costume contest, as well as a Christmas ugly sweater contest, with prizes from Tranceformations Tattoo and Bodypiercing and Beauty Queen Salon.

The show will be held Saturday (Nov. 2), with doors opening at 7 p.m., and the show starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20/ advance at Tranceformations, 3-4047 Norwell Dr., or online at www.naughtyand spiceburlesque.com; $25/door.

VIU students study abroad I fUNdINg aIds research goals overseas.

By Shari BiShop BoweS

Two Vancouver Island University students have a deeper passion for their chosen fields of study after receiving scholarships to support their international internships in Bulgaria and Ecuador. Brent Whitford, a fourth-year anthropology student, and Megan Kingwill, in her fourth year of a global studies major and anthropology minor at VIU, each received a $6,000 Premier’s International Scholarship to pay for internships taken this past summer. Kingwill spent the summer as a community development intern with the Arajuno Road Project, a small non-profit organization working with rural schools on the edge of the Amazon in Ecuador. “My experience in Ecuador has not only affirmed passions I already had for food security and community development, but also initiated a strong interest in Latin American culture and politics,” Kingwill said. “I am hoping to pursue this through research during my final year at VIU, and at a master’s level in the coming years.” In her Latin American internship, Kingwill developed guidance materials for the organization, built and maintained school gardens with community members, developed experimental permaculture plots to be used by schools and families, and met with government officials to request resources for the schools. Whitford travelled to Bulgaria for a 10-week internship last summer to supervise archeological digs and groups of students in an early neolithic settlement along the

Struma River Valley. It was his second trip to the site, as he spent a month there in the summer of 2012 on a study abroad experience. “I’m attempting to specialize in GIS (geographic information systems) for archeology methods,” Whitford said. “My project has been developing the methods for documenting the excavation of our archeological sites, using GIS. My time abroad consisted mostly of data collection, and now that I have that data, I’m putting it all together.” Whitford has always nurtured an interest in pre-history and archeology, but it wasn’t until he was 24 and working for his ninth year as a cook in Ontario that he decided to pursue studies in that field. “I was sitting at home watching a documentary on the Maya, and noticed for the first time that the person speaking on television had a job title under his name,” he said. “No joke, the following day I applied to VIU for an anthropology major, and I’ve been there ever since.” One of Whitford’s mentors in his internship, the curator of the Blagoevgrad Regional Museum of History, has offered him an opportunity to return to Bulgaria next summer once he has graduated. He will have the chance to review information collected on an excavation that began in the late 1970s, digitize maps used at the dig sites, and publish the results of his analyses. Premier’s International Scholarships, offered by the Irving K. Barber British Columbia Scholarship Society for study abroad, are funded from the returns on a $15-million endowment fund established by the Province of B.C. for international education.

Award recognizes student’s impact Nanaimo student Kennedy Baker won a Standing Tall award worth $5,000 from Coast Capital Savings for her courage in facing a series of personal challenges, including the death of her father and recovering from a gunshot wound she sustained while out running one evening. The credit union awarded 16 Standing Tall awards to youth who have made a positive impact on their commu-

nities in the face of personal adversity. “This award recognizes the journey that I’ve taken and the challenges I’ve overcome in getting where I am today,” said Baker, who just started pursuing a psychology degree at Vancouver Island University. Her education will help Baker grow her not-for-profit organization, STAND, which supports Canadians living below the poverty line.
