Razors tossed into trash for Movember BY TAMARA CUNNINGHAM THE NEWS BULLETIN

Faces across the Harbour City are bristling with new moustaches this month as the annual Movember campaign kicks off. The charity movement has thousands of men across the globe tossing out razors at the start of November to begin a 30-day long effort to grow a ’stache. The event is all about sporting a mo’ to raise awareness and donations for prostate and testicular cancer research and in Nanaimo, men are taking up the challenge.

That ’50s Barber Shop owner Dave Lawrence was shaving off beards last week as men prepared for the contest and said the event seems to have just “blown up.” “It seems each year this movement gets bigger and bigger and more people take part in it,” he said. “It’s exciting at the end of the month to see so many guys with these little moustaches ... and the money being raised is ... staggering.” The Canadian Movember campaign raised $42.6 million in 2012 thanks to moustachioed men and their supporters. And while campaigners

are eager to raise the bar on donations, they are also enjoying the fun of growing a mo’ for a good cause. “There is a little bit of an embarrassment to it ... and I enjoy that side,” said Adam Hawryluk, president of the Young Professionals of Nanaimo. It also doesn’t take much to get involved in the fundraiser, he said. “In fact, it’s a lack of action that means you are involved. All you have to do is not shave.” This is Hawryluk’s fourth year in the contest and he said this time he is aiming to raise $2,500. ◆ See ‘FUN’ /9

Operational review seeking efficiency

Jesse Kennedy, left, and Matthew Sheena, Vancouver island university resource management officer technology students, check out the overnight catch made by a camera set up to count coho as they swim up the Millstone river. about 100 of the fish have been spotted this year as they return to the river to spawn.

to 94 salmon conservation projects in and around Nanaimo from Duncan to Fanny Bay. The foundation – a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to conserving and restoring salmon and their habitat – will host its 11th annual charity dinner, dance and auction in Nanaimo, chaired by Mel Sheng, head of Fisheries and Oceans Canada salmon enhancement programs on the south B.C. Coast, at Beban Park Nov. 23. The event includes live and silent auctions and raffles offering prizes such as fishing adventures, original artwork, giftware, jewelry and more. Tickets, $60 each, are available in Nanaimo at Gone Fishin’, 600-2980 North Island Highway, and Wholesale Sports Outdoor Outfitters, 4900 Wellington Rd. Prior to the gala, get a first-hand look at how the Millstone River side channel benefits salmon by participating in one of two Spawner Spotting Workshops, geared for children and hosted by the city, with Charles Thirkill, fisheries biologist. Join Thirkill at the Bowen Park Duck Pond for a one-hour informative stream-side walk to learn about the life cycle of salmon and spot fish preparing to spawn in the river. The workshops happen Nov. 16 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and Nov. 24 from 1-2 p.m. Admission is $10, free for parent. Please call Nanaimo parks and recreation at 250-756-5200 to register.

Staff and community input will be sought as the Regional District of Nanaimo conducts an operational and efficiency review expected to take six months. The district board approved a motion for the review at last month’s board meeting. Paul Thorkelsson, regional district chief administrative officer, said it will be an internal review of the organization that will be driven at the staff level. The process hasn’t been undertaken by the Regional District of Nanaimo before, he said. “It’s essentially an interview process with every staff member within the organization about our processes, looking for places where people that actually do the work see the possibilities for efficiencies, increases in effectiveness, where there’s gaps, where there’s pieces missing in the services that we provide to the community, where we’re meeting the expectations of the community, where we’re not meeting those expectations,” Thorkelsson said. He said the review is aimed at seeing whether the regional district is enabled to meet current expectations of the communities it serves and future challenges in those communities, adding it is important not to “pre-suppose potential outcomes” and assume there will be job losses. “It needs to grow organically out of the information and data that’s collected but my expectation overall is that we will see areas where we can improve efficiency and effectiveness and we’ll also undoubtedly see areas where we’re not adequately resourced to meet the expectations of the community,” Thorkelsson said. “So then we have to have that discussion what that means for the board, whether that’s dedicating new resources to certain areas or shifting of resources from different areas.” Thorkelsson said he met with CUPE Local 401 president Blaine Gurrie and reviewed the proposal and said Gurrie expressed the union’s support for the review process. “The key and central part of it is that our CUPE employees are participating directly in the process and it’s important that certainly the president understood it and I had the president’s support in taking this forward to the board,” Thorkelsson said. Gurrie was contacted for comment but did not respond in time for press. Thorkelsson also said there would be external involvement with a community survey asking similar questions to the public, as well as interviews with stakeholder groups for particular service areas and elected officials. Thorkelsson said the community survey would likely be out by the end of the year but the internal interview process will take longer. “By spring or early summer of [2014] we should be reporting back to the board on some recommendations,” Thorkelsson said.

Salmon returning to Millstone River

I

fuNdraiSEr hElpS further work of foundation in repairing streams. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Take a walk through Bowen Park and you’ll see salmon resting in the duck pond before they move up river to spawn. Increasing numbers of salmon are swimming up the Millstone River, thanks in a big way to money provided by the Pacific Salmon Foundation, which in 2007 helped create the Millstone River side channel to give salmon an easier migration route around two steep waterfalls to get to spawning grounds upriver and in Brannen Lake. The project also rejuvenated Bowen Park as it opened up new pathways and created a centre for delivering environmental education programs to children. Already more than 100 coho have been counted in the side channel and this year John Morgan, a professor with Vancouver Island University’s Natural Resource Protection Program, is hoping for a record coho run. “Typically [coho] live to be three years old,” Morgan said. “So [the side channel] was seeded for the first couple of years from Nanaimo Fish Hatchery, but in 2010, 500 came back and about two dozen spawned in the channel, so there was fish in the channel for people to see.”

TRIO GRANDE SATURDAY NOVEMBER 7

2013 has been a good year for coho runs, but there has been little of the rain needed to raise water levels so the fish can move upstream. A strong rain at the end of September got about 100 coho up to the Bowen Park duck pond where they were stuck until recent heavy rains allowed them to move farther upriver. “We’re expecting at least 500, hopefully 1,000, once it starts raining,” Morgan said. “So that will be a fair number of fish in that channel again for people to see and starting from zero six years ago, up to 1,000 for coho is actually pretty good.” This will also be the first coho run of offspring spawned in the Millstone River. “In 2010, those were the progeny of the seeded fish and these are the first naturalized fish,” Morgan said. “They haven’t all shown up yet, but they’re starting to come now.” People will have to peer carefully into the water to see them, though. Coho, unlike brightly coloured chum salmon, are shy, well camouflaged and like to hide in the shadows in the daytime and only spawn at night. That behaviour makes it tough for spectators wanting to witness the cycle of life, but they are perfect traits for a fish to breed in a relatively shallow urban stream, like the Millstone River. “They’re not the best spectator sport fish, but they’re well adapted to small streams,” Morgan said. Since 1991 the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s community salmon program has contributed more than $651,000

Community fundraising effort aims to cover funeral costs

I

MUSICIAN lIvEd in Nanaimo for seven years. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

KARL YU/The News BULLeTiN

Whittle while you work Gunther Griffel of the Mid Island Carving Club works on a figurine during the Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors Woodcarving Club’s 19th annual woodcarving show and competition at Bowen Park Complex Saturday. Along with wood-carved art, this year’s show had paintings, ceramics and pottery.

Friends and supporters are raising money to help ship a man’s body home to his family. Hugmar Baarh, a man well known on the local music scene and the skateboarding community, was found dead from accidental causes in his home recently. Baarh had lived in Nanaimo since 2006, studied at Vancouver Island University’s jazz music program and gave private music lessons. “He did a lot of open jam nights around town and he had performed here and there,” said Russ Morland, of The Electric Umbrella tattoo and gallery. “Lots of people would know him and he also worked as a chef in kitchens, so the chefs around town would know him as well.” Morland has taken up the challenge to raise cash to have Baarh’s body

returned to his family in Aruba, a small country in the Caribbean. There are cultural and legal issues around cremation in Aruba and storing and shipping human remains is costly. Because Baarh’s family does not have the means to cover the transport costs, estimated at about $10,000, they need the community’s help to get his body home to Aruba. Morland is raising additional money to help Baarh’s mother, Marieta Hernandis, fly to Nanaimo to claim her son’s body and to cover accommodation costs or to find someone who could offer her a place to stay. Hernandis hopes to return to Aruba with her son’s remains early next week. “I think they’re pretty much blue collar type of people, for sure, from what I can tell,” Morland said. “I mean, not many people just have $10,000 sitting around.” People in Aruba are also raising money to help cover costs of funeral services there, Morland said. There are also plans to

build an additional feature at the Nanaimo Skate Bowl dedicated in Baarh’s name. “We’re hoping to do something for Hugmar here at the downtown skatepark, which is in dire need of replenishment anyway,” Morland said. Donations have have poured in from local supporters, friends and from Baarh’s friends and extended family in the Netherlands. To learn more or to make a donation, please visit Electric Umbrella’s Facebook page at www.face book.com/theelectric umbrella or go directly to the fundraising website at www.gofundme. com/535l0k.

Organizers choose access to urban water as focus issue at film festival By Karl yu The News BulleTiN

Water issues will be a major focus of the eighth annual Urban Issues Film Festival tomorrow (Nov. 8) at Vancouver Island University. Chris Sholberg, the city’s community planner and member of the Planning Institute of B.C.’s North Island chapter, said the film festival – which is cosponsored by the university’s geography department and the institute – will have a number of films focusing on the role water plays with respect to urban planning, particularly when there is too much or too little. “You can’t have a city without a water system. Look at Lantzville, look at

that whole [water sharing agreement with Nanaimo] situation. For a city to grow it does need an adequate water system and we’re in the same boat in Nanaimo,” Sholberg said. “We’re looking at our projections for up to 2020 and the question is will we have enough water to support the growth that we’re going to have here?” While there will be films like A World Without Water, Designs that Hold Water: Sustainable Drainage Systems, Revolutionizing The Role of Water in Urban Planning, there will be others that deal with non water-related planning issues. Sholberg will be talking about the short documentary The Walkable City, which deals with overdependence on cars, and the films

Urbanized and Walk in Beauty: Clean Energy For A Changeable World will also be screened. As a matter of coincidence, the date of this year’s festival falls in line with the international World Town Planning Day, which promotes public awareness of urban planning, something Sholberg said is fitting. “We thought, ‘Let’s also feature that

and try to work with the theme that World Town Planning Day had,’ which is the use of water in urban areas,” Sholberg said. “It’s really just us trying to do at a local level the same thing that’s being done internationally, which is to promote awareness of urban planning and the planning profession here in Nanaimo.” The film festival begins at 3 p.m. at Room 109 at the Nanaimo campus’ Building 356 and runs until 9 p.m. While the event is free, Sholberg recommends pre-registering at www.urbanfilmfest. eventbrite.ca as space is limited. Food and beverages will be provided. More information can be found at www. facebook.com/urbanfilmfest. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Transportation tough to plan It’s rare to be stuck in a traffic jam in Nanaimo, and ideally, that will always be the case. The municipality, working on a long-term transportation plan, is entering the final phase of public consultation. As city staff await input from residents, they’re coming up with a few ideas of their own. Green, clean travel is being held up as an ideal. Right now 12 per cent of Nanaimoites get to and fro by walking, cycling or taking the bus and the city would like to double that percentage over the next 25 years. That’s going to be a challenge. Right now, Nanaimo is about as car-friendly as it gets. Traffic is light, parking costs peanuts, and a trip from north Nanaimo to downtown is simplest on four wheels. And there is isn’t a lot of incentive for commuters to change their ways. We keep hearing that our gas-guzzling, exhaust-choking SUVs are an unsustainable mode of travel, but industry keeps finding ways to pipeline more fuel our way. The people who are most likely to contribute to this transportation talk are those who face challenges in their daily commute – the bus riders who aren’t wellserviced by current routes, or the cyclists who are getting sideswiped by sport utes. We feel some sympathy, but in a city this size, those travellers are in the minority and any major transportation infrastructure investment had better be for the greater good. One of the challenges of a long-term transportation plan is that we don’t know exactly where we’re going. It’s difficult to predict population growth, or urban sprawl, or the efficacy of downtown revitalization. We don’t know where people will be travelling to, or from, over the coming years. We don’t know if it will be in hybrid electrics or hovercars. The best we can do is to try to create a transportation plan that’s idealistic yet realistic. The road ahead beckons. Let’s get a move on it. The Nanaimo News Bulletin is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

The Ministry of Health warns: “you can spread influenza for 24 hours before you have any symptoms.” What would cause educated health care workers to defy common sense? A hint is provided by professional union promoter and publicist Bill Tieleman, who railed about the decision on his blog. This regulation is inspired by big bad U.S. health care corporations that would rather impose immunization than pay for sick days, Tieleman asserts. Ah, so an infected health care employee should wander the wards until symptoms emerge, and then go home for a few days of paid rest. What a perfectly stupid idea. Last week BCNU president Debra McPherson was warning about “chaos” at the new Surrey Memorial emergency ward, her latest of a career of media protests. The big new facility is already overflowing, and more beds and more staff are needed, stat! Perhaps if better preventive measures were taken by nurses, doctors and other staff, this chronic “chaos” would be reduced and these unions would have more credibility. u Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com.

Pot smokers need to spark their interest To the Editor, Now is the time for all marijuana smokers to step out of the closet and sign the Sensible B.C. referendum in your area. There will be no better time than now. For decades, pot smokers have hidden behind the imposed curtain of a constructed social stigma that neither accurately reflects the smokers

nor the plant. You have been labelled, marginalized, jailed, fined, lied about and pushed to the fringes of your community. The manufactured lies about the harmful effects have not been borne out, yet you allow them to run the agenda. At a time when several U.S. states have decriminalized marijuana, Macleans Magazine has called

for it’s legalization, a former B.C. attorney general has weighed in on decriminalization and the B.C. Municipalities Association has called for the end to this nonsense of jailing smokers, you the smokers, the very people that one would expect to roll up their sleeves and step forward, still stay closeted in your own fear of coming out for what

Let foot ferry sink or swim be successful. If it is too low there will be no return of investment for the shareholders so they won’t risk it. As far as thinking of the $400,000 a year payment as a $300,000 subsidy, how about thinking of it as a total gain compared to the nothing we get now. Lastly, there can be no cost for the infrastructure to the taxpayer. The neverbuilt new sportsplex that was proposed at no cost to the city was shown to be a total cost to the city and was rejected. I hope our council is just as astute for this venture.

To the Editor,

Re: Passenger-only ferry not at all essential, Letters, Oct. 29. The foot ferry is not an essential service per se. It could be a successful business. Personally, I like the idea of a toll bridge joining the Island to the mainland as the best alternative to the ferry system. All of that aside, the foot ferry business needs to have a business model that as accurately as possible puts the costs to the user up front. What does it matter what the fare is? If it is too high the ferry will not have the loads it needs to

J. Sharpe Nanaimo

Bridge has been proven possible To the Editor,

Re: Bridge to mainland just isn’t possible, Letters, Nov. 5. You state that a bridge to the mainland is not possible, have you not been to Prince Edward Island or read about the Confederation Bridge that connects it to the mainland of New Brunswick? I have driven over it with a semi.

If we could get a government that was not afraid to tackle the issue it would be possible, I personally outlined a possible solution to this matter a few months ago, it meant island hopping to Tsawwassen. It would be a lot easier than the Confederation Bridge that they built, high enough to handle sea traffic. We would need

two spans in my theory, a short and a long, ending up in Tsawwassen. It is the day of high technology and anything is possible, the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick to P.E.I. is proof of this. We can do it, all it takes is a government that is not afraid to tackle the job.

u From /1 According to Smythe, the best action would be to evaluate proposals based on what’s good for the community and weigh whether environmental or health issues are surmountable. “Then we have the opportunity to say to other investors, we looked at that deal closely ... and it didn’t meet the environmental criteria and health standards Nanaimo demands,” he said. The city’s mayor believes council will continue to investigate and listen to both sides of the incinerator issue before a decision is made. He said he still has mixed feelings about the project, with questions about potential health implications and would like to get more information. But a decision might also not be far off. On Nov. 15, nine companies will have the chance to put forward options to Metro Vancouver for in and out-of-region sites they have secured. On Nov. 21 Metro Vancouver officials will make the list public.

It is anticipated that Seaspan, Wheelabrator Technologies and Urbaser will put forward Duke Point for a $500-million facility. If the city is announced as a potential site, the mayor said it could be time to arrive at a decision. While the community likely has two or three months to take a stance on an incinerator, “I suggest the public will want a commitment from council much sooner than that,” Ruttan said. “It is prudent to wait 10 days to see if Duke Point is under final determination … at that point we will really get at it and support or reject it.” As part of Metro Vancouver’s multi-staged selection process, project proponents will be crafting design plans based on sites presented this November. Paul Henderson, Metro Vancouver’s general manager of solid waste services, said there will be public consultation and “community support will be a really critical element” in moving projects forward. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Fun event carries serious message u From /1 Roger Paquette is looking to carry the momentum of his son’s memorial team, which he said raised close to $55,000 last year. In 2011, the community raised $115,000 in memory of his son, Garrett Paquette, helping to propel him into the No. 1 fundraising spot in the world. Garrett, 30, was killed in an ATV accident shortly after registering for Movember in 2011. “It was the last thing he did in life and I wanted to continue on with that,” Paquette said. The Garrett Paquette Memorial Team will be joining the Clippers to fundraise for Movember, and will host cupcake drives and a seafood dinner to drive up donations. For Nanaimo resident and prostate cancer survivor El Martel the 11th month is also an important time to spread awareness – even if people don’t take part in the official contest. He has been growing his his hair for the past two years and his moustache for 40. He’ll shave it all off at the end of the month after a 30-day long effort to speak with men and women about the importance of early detection and physical exams.

Top five tips to get the best ’stache Men across Nanaimo are prepared to grow moustaches for the annual Movember contest, but it is no easy feat to get a good mo’ in 30 days, according to That 50’s Barber shop owner Dave lawrence. “a month growth is a little stubbly and [looks a little] ’70s plumber – you can’t see anything impressive,” lawrence said. To get a better ’stache, take note: Men should consider a moustache design that’s cool and a little different – like a Fu Manchu that droops down the sides of the mouth or “one over your upper lip with more shape to it” and it should suit their face, lawrence said. “I have a friend ... with a very long face and a long nose and he

Martel was diagnosed with prostate cancer four years ago but because it was caught early, has been able to control and live with it without any side effects. “I think [Movember] is a serious thing. We are proud to display our manhood by growing a ’stache and we also want to make people aware that prostate cancer can destroy your manhood,” he said. “For me, it’s basically put-

tends to grow a moustache and goatee that droops down pretty far and it just makes his face look that much longer. You want to avoid that.” If you aren’t following the official mo’ rules, take a shortcut. according to lawrence the best way to get an impressive moustache is to grow a beard and then shave it off to get the ’stache. That way “you don’t go through a slow process [and] the awkward stages. You just have this built in moustache. It’s how I do it every time.” Get moustache wax for the edge of your ’stache. “The problem about having a big moustache is you are always eating with a napkin nearby ... but wax it out of the way and it’s a clean event.”

ting out the message about early detection.” Martel said he hopes through his campaign he can save lives because he doesn’t believe enough men know the value of physical exams. As part of the effort he will shave off 9.5 inches of hair at the Hammond Bay Coastal Community Credit Union at noon Nov. 30. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Spending fails to reach aboriginal children By Tom FleTcher Black Press

The B.C. government has spent 10 years and $66 million on meetings and consultants to discuss aboriginal “governance” of children in protective care, while actual services such as domestic violence safe houses remain inadequate to meet the need. That conclusion emerges from a new report from B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth, Mary Ellen TurpelLafond, who calls it a “confused, unstable and bizarre area of public policy” where millions continue to be spent without accountability. “For example,” Turpel-

Lafond wrote, “nearly $35 million was spent discussing regional aboriginal authorities, including large expenditures on paying people to meet, hiring consultants to facilitate those meetings, and producing materials of questionable practical value following such meetings that almost never addressed the actual difficulties children and youth were experiencing in their lives – issues such as parental addiction, domestic violence, poverty, neglect and the need for mental health services or special needs support.” Stephanie Cadieux, B.C.’s Minister of Children and Family Development, said Wednes-

day she accepts the findings of the report, and agrees that the ministry “strayed from its mandate to provide direct services.” A new deputy minister appointed two years ago has worked to redirect ministry spending to services for those in need, Cadieux said. She acknowledged that another $8 million is being spent this fiscal year on impractical “nation to nation” talks before consulting contracts expire. NDP children and families critic Carole James said it’s “appalling” that millions are spent on high-level meetings while there is an eight-month waiting list for youth mental health services.

Plan aims to drive residents toward alternative transportation Improved transit system, cycling trails part of ongoing discussion By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo city staff members are pitching a new rapid transit route and more cycling trails to help drive residents toward alternative transportation. The City of Nanaimo is presenting new transportation possibilities during the last wave of public consultation for a budding master plan this month. The first-ever long term transportation plan, launched last year, is aimed at directing decisionmaking for the next 25 years, including polices to encourage people to travel any other way but car. According to a new report by B.C.-based Urban Systems, 88 per cent of trips made each day in the Harbour City are via car, compared to 12 per cent made by walking, cycling and bus. The

city wants to double the number of people using sustainable travel by 2041 with strategies like a faster, more direct transit service and “complete streets” that are safe and attractive for cyclists and pedestrians. Some projects have already started to roll out, including piecemeal bike lanes on residential roads. The latest public consultation series will allow people to weigh in on whether the new strategies are on track so more complete networks can be created, said Gordon Foy, the city’s traffic and transportation planning engineer. “By pulling and putting together a strategic plan it gives us a much stronger piece of policy to work with and a clear sense of direction on where we are going,” Foy

NEWS BULLETIN fILE

A comprehensive transportation study is looking at ways to improve and speed up public transit in the city.

said. “Instead of incremental, small changes we basically have a road map – no pun intended – to move this forward.” The latest draft plan presents transportation goals and ways to meet them, from more pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods to more convenient bus routes. According to the city’s early research, people that live close to service centres like the downtown core and Woodgrove Centre are trending more toward walking and cycling. The plan is

to invest in making it easier for people to travel within those hubs and densify neighbourhoods to encourage shorter trips. Nanaimo is considering sidewalks, street lighting, weather protection and curb extensions at intersections so people wouldn’t have to cross as far. Bike networks and a “spine” of transit facilities where people could access frequent transit at 15-minute intervals and a new ‘express’ bus would also be available on

the Island Highway. Coun. George Anderson, chairman of the transportation advisory committee,

believes with the right mix of strategies more people can be encouraged to pick sustainable modes of travel.

“Look at Bellingham, a community roughly the same size as Nanaimo,” he said. “They have an 18 per cent [alternative] mode share in their community right now and currently Nanaimo is at 12 per cent. It does show potential to encourage people to use alternative modes of transportation.” Public consultation happens at University Village at 3 p.m. Friday (Nov. 8), as well as Port Place and Woodgrove Centre on Saturday (Nov. 9). The plan is slated for completion in 2014. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Dry grad event could dry up without more volunteers

I

group SEEkS people to sit on board. By Chris Bush the News BulletiN

The NanaimoLadysmith Dry Grad could evaporate if volunteers can’t be found to fill positions on the organization’s executive board and subcommittee. In an effort to buy time to find new blood, the dry grad society has postponed its annual general meeting until Nov. 21. After that date the society could dissolve, bringing an end – at least temporarily – to a long tradition of providing a safe, alcohol and drug-free event for students to celebrate their graduations, warns Rebecca Leigh, society entertainment coordinator. “What we need is enough people to fill our executive and committee positions,” Leigh said. Over the last 10 years there has been a core group of people organizing the event who now want to pass the reins off to others in the community, but so far there have been few willing to climb in the saddle. “So now a lot of people have stepped down, so there are a lot of new positions,” Leigh said. “I came on last year because they put a call out for help, saying sort of the same situation – that they were looking at having to cancel the event if they didn’t get any help.” Nanaimo-Ladysmith Dry Grad is run by a non-profit society, which must have certain executive and board direct positions filled to maintain society status and receive operating money through donations and grants. About 14 positions need to be filled in total. “Quite a few of us who are on the committee now are brand new, but we’re still not able to fill our full committee,” Leigh said. She said the Nanaimo-Ladysmith

Dry Grad, held annually at Beban Park, includes all high schools, public and private, in the school district and is the largest event of its kind in B.C. Planning for dry grad usually starts in October, so even if a delay in filling those positions doesn’t shut down the soci-

ety permanently it means the committee won’t be able to confirm vendors and entertainment for Dry Grad 2014, which could force the event to be cancelled. People interested in stepping up to pitch in don’t have to be parents of students or even connected with schools or par-

ent advisory committees. “I’m 25. I just came in because it was a great opportunity to get involved in the community and it was an event that I attended when I was in high school,” Leigh said. “I’m nowhere near having kids in the education system. We’re

looking for anybody who’s passionate and believes they have a skill set that they can contribute.” Parents and interested community members are encouraged to attend and bring their friends to the NanaimoLadysmith Dry Grad annual general meeting Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.

in the Woodlands Secondary School in Library. For more information, please visit the NanaimoLadysmith Dry Grad website at www. nanaimodrygrad. ca, e-mail info@ nanaimodrygrad.ca or call Leigh at 250816-0728.

Premiers find common pipeline ground

I

AgREEmENT REAChEd for oil expansion.

By Tom FleTcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark met Alberta Premier Alison Redford in Vancouver Thursday to announce what they are calling a “framework agreement” for heavy oil pipeline expansion to the West Coast. Alber ta agrees to support B.C.’s demand for a revenue share from the oil production and export, as long as it doesn’t come from Alberta’s resource royalties. B.C. agrees to support Alberta’s call for a national energy strategy, Clark and Redford said Tuesday. “Alberta has reached a broader understanding and acceptance of British Columbia’s five conditions, and our province had agreed to join the Canadian Energy Strategy discussions started by Premier Redford,” Clark told reporters at an energy conference in Vancouver. In previous meetings, Redford has been adamant that none of Alberta’s resource royalties from oilsands crude will be shared. B.C. has argued that the oil producers and the federal government have to find a solution to the conditions for approval laid down by Clark. Redford said her proposed national strategy is to address interprovincial projects such as pipelines, recognizing that energy is provincial jurisdiction. “We don’t think this is about quid pro quo or gotcha politics,” Redford said. “This is about putting in place economic models that are going to work for Canada, for each of our economies, and allow for product to move.” Clark said she is pleased that Redford accepted her conditions, and the assurance she gave at their June meeting in Kelowna that B.C. isn’t after Alberta’s resource royalties. B.C. makes

substantial royalties from natural gas and hopes to increase that substantially with exports, Clark said. NDP leader Adrian Dix contrasted Tuesday’s statements with Clark’s position before the May election, where the government told the federal review panel on

the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal it was opposed. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said B.C. has also changed its position to say oil shipments are “going to happen, whether by train or by pipeline.” Redford visited B.C.

to give a keynote speech to an energy forum hosted by the Vancouver Board of Trade. The soldout event included a panel discussion with Redford and Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson, whose company is proposing to expand its Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta

to its Burnaby marine terminal and refineries in Burnaby and Washington. Anderson was asked by Black Press how his company would respond if B.C. proposes a specific tax or toll on each barrel of oil shipped through the twinned Trans Mountain pipeline. “I think it’s far too early to be talking about those kinds of concepts,” Anderson said. “We’re looking to define and deliver the benefits from our project directly to communities in British Columbia. The extent to which the B.C. government evaluates those, they’ll do so on their o w n a c c o rd a n d they’ll call me if they need to.” A federal review panel is preparing to make recommendations on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline proposed to run from Alberta to a new marine terminal at Kitimat.

With B.C. Hydro struggling to control electricity rate increases and cutting back on private power acquisition, a company known mostly for wind projects is reviving a proposal to connect the Vancouver Island and Washington electricity grids. Sea Breeze Power Corp. wants to build a 50-kilometre transmission cable under the Strait of Juan de Fuca to connect substations near Port

Angeles and Victoria. To finance the project, it’s looking for a 10-year deal to assemble surplus U.S. power and sell it to B.C. Hydro at a flat rate of $69 per megawatt hour. Sea Breeze CEO Paul Manson said the power purchase would finance the construction of the cable and deliver a steady source of electricity to B.C. at lower cost than new sources built in the province. It would also improve power quality and reliability for Vancouver Island residents, he said. First proposed in 2006, the project has received environmental permits from both sides of the border. It

was rejected by the B.C. Utilities Commission, which approved upgrading the existing power line from the B.C. mainland to Vancouver Island instead. Sea Breeze developed a wind project at Cape Scott on northern Vancouver Island, and has plans and permits for other wind sites on the B.C. coast and the Peace River region. Manson said the Juan de Fuca cable would stabilize wind power supply on the B.C. coast, where wind speeds peak in winter, with inland Washington sites where it’s windiest in summer. The cable would also give B.C. more capacity to buy cheap overnight coal and nuclear power from the U.S., which B.C. Hydro already does with its main connecting line along Interstate 5, he said. Energy Minister Bill Bennett said the Juan de Fuca cable is one of many proposals that came forward as B.C. Hydro developed its

Proponents of a new power cable between Vancouver Island and Washington say it would make wind power a more stable source.

integrated resource plan. That plan estimates that with conservation and efficiency improvements in B.C., the province will need more electricity supplies within eight years.

A word from a

The company has not yet demonstrated that it can assemble the firm electricity it proposes to sell, and the project has “a pretty steep slope to climb,” Bennett said. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

DEATHS

March 12, 1919 ~ October 31, 2013

After a life well-lived, Dad passed away at the Lodge on 4th. He had lived there for 6 years, where his care was exceptional by staff Countryand Club workers 756-0381 both past and Dickinsonpresent. Crossing 390-1595 Dad served in the European Theatre during WWII with the RCAMSC-13th Field Ambulance. Amazingly, Dad was the longest living survivor of his unit. As a young man, Dad played the accordion at many dances. His accordion travelled with him during the war. His career as an Industrial First Aid Attendant was as close as possible to his goal of becoming a doctor. Dad was raised in Cassidy, BC and began his young family there. In the early 1950s he moved his family to Ladysmith where he became a lifelong resident. He supported many service clubs and organizations. He was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Eagles. He particularly enjoyed being a marriage commissioner. We affectionately called him â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marrying Samâ&#x20AC;?. Last year, Dad was the proud recipient of the Queens Diamond Jubilee Medal for service to country and community. Predeceased by his wife, Rose and son, Bob; he is survived by daughters, Sheila and Sharron, and son-in-law, Carl Anderson; grandsons, Rob and Dayle (Ellie); and great grandson, Andy. Many thanks to Dr. E. Fritsch for his care, and to Irene and Wayne â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very special friends. It would please Dad if everyone was very dedicated to their health. He tried very hard to live forever! In Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory, a donation to either of the following would be appreciated. Heart & Stroke Foundation, 401-495 Dunsmuir St, Nanaimo, BC V9R 6B9 or Ladysmith First United Church, P.O. Box 124, Ladysmith, BC, V0R 2E0. Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final resting place will be in Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens in the Field of Honor. A

WWII Veteran at rest.

21st Field Artillery Regiment in the Royal Canadian Army. Served in WWII from 1942-1945.

A wonderful soul was lost, unexpectedly, on October 30, 2013. Wanda endured so much pain, but it was her good nature never to complain. She will be missed by those who truly knew and loved her. She is survived by her daughter, Meghan; son, Coulton; family and friends.

December 17, 1951 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; October 25, 2013

Jan passed away peacefully at NRGH with her family by her side. She is predeceased by her mother, Helen; father, Gordon; and brother, Vic. She is survived by her devoted husband, Wayne; daughter, Megan (Curtis); brother, Doug (Susan); nephews, Chris (Shannon) and Sean (Natasha), their respective children, Chace and Kaydence; sister-in-law, Lois (Darrell); brother-in-law, Don (Susan) and many dear friends in BC and Alberta. Jan was born in North Battleford, Sask., grew up in Saskatoon and moved to Edmonton where she met her husband, Wayne. After some time living in Prince George, Jan and family moved to Nanaimo, in 1993. Here she worked many years at Canadian Northern Shield Insurance Company and was a member of the Nanaimo Quilters Guild. Jan enjoyed many crafty activities including pottery, tole painting, sewing, quilting, cross-stitching, cake decorating, gardening and cooking. After retirement, Wayne and Jan enjoyed traveling to Yuma, Az and touring in their TR6 with the Old English Car Club. Jan will be remembered watching football with her family, especially her Edmonton Eskimos, caring for the dogs in her life and working in her beautiful garden. At her request no service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Janet Peddie Memorial Fund at VIU to support a deserving Horticultural student. This is to reflect Janâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of gardening. Online donations can be made at VIU.ca/giving Condolences may be offered at telfordn@shaw.ca Telfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of Nanaimo 250-591-6644

He was born to Arthur and Jennie Hook on August 9th, 1950, in Calgary, Alberta. After graduating with a Degree in Commerce from the University of Alberta, he was a long-term employee of the Public Service Commission in several BC locations.

The most effective way to reach an incredible number of BC Sportsmen & women. Two year edition- terrific presence for your business.

Large in life and large with love for the family who called him their own, Timothy Junior was a lot of things to a lot of people. He was hard working, and always gave more than he took. TJâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laugh was full bodied and inviting. His greatest love was his family, and he proudly displayed this love through his body art of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Familyâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Faithâ&#x20AC;?, and Dakotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand print. So much more than a partner, a son and a brother, he was a treasured friend. He was a great father, in love with his children Dakota and Koen, and will forever be their guardian angel.

A Funeral Service will be held at 3 p.m. on Friday, November 8, 2013 at Telfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Funeral Home, 595 Townsite Road, Nanaimo. Friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s may say good-bye to Timothy from 2 p.m. A Reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a charity of your choice.

Beefs & bouquets BOUQUET To Dairy Queen at Country Club Centre for making my son’s fourth birthday cake so wonderful. The excavator you put on it was amazing and he loved it.

BOUQUET To karma. We thought you forgot about all of us since it’s been a few years. We all got the shaft and now it’s her turn to pay. Hip, hip hooray, it made our day.

BEEF I am very disappointed with someone handing out Halloween treats with ‘God loves you,’ or people handing out their business cards. It’s supposed to be a fun day, not for you to push religion or advertise your business. Next year just turn out the lights.

BOUQUET To the lady who tracked me down and told me she saw that I had dropped my wallet in the Longwood Station parking lot.

BOUQUET To Raceeta MacKenzie for being such a wonderful chiropractor for my dog, Piper. Driving to Bellevue Veterinary Hospital at Errington for your gentle, skilled treatments is the best decision I made for Piper’s ongoing, active lifestyle, and overall good health. BOUQUET To Kal Tire on Norwell Drive for staying open late to make sure my flat tire got changed on Halloween. It was a busy day and your wonderful service is greatly appreciated.

BOUQUET To our daughter Marion for being such a never-ending kind person. You truly do have a heart of gold and as I have said so many times, you are your nona reincarnated. Sunday was a very special day for Dad and I and we say thank you, and we love you very, very much.

BOUQUET To Three Point Motors’ service department. We have been in twice within a few months for work on our Mercedes and received excellent service from them each time. We were pleasantly surprised to have our last visit covered under an extended warranty we didn’t know we had. BOUQUET To all those who honored our request on Halloween in the Davies Lane/Mallard/Duggan area not to knock on the door or ring the bell, as all that noise terrifies our dogs and we have to tranquilize them. We all had a very peaceful night.

Canadian Bowl all set to kick off I

V.I. RAIDERS go to Regina to vie for CJFL crown. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

It’s Canadian Bowl week. It’s the climax of the Canadian Junior Football League season. And now that Nanaimo’s V.I. Raiders have made it this far, there’s nothing to do but try for a win, a trophy and a perfect ending to 2013. The Raiders will take the field Saturday (Nov. 9) at Regina’s Mosaic Stadium to play the host Thunder for a national championship. “This is what we’ve worked for,” said Jordan Kuziek, Raiders lineman. “If you’re not excited for this, then there’s no reason why you should be playing football.” This Nanaimo-Regina matchup was anything but a foregone conclusion this season. The Raiders can never really be considered underdogs, but they’ve felt like their backs were against the wall ever since their 1-2 start in the B.C. Football Conference. They reeled off 10 straight wins, though, to put themselves back in the big bowl game. As for the Thunder, they had to move a mountain and defeat the nearly unbeatable Saskatoon Hilltops in the Prairie Football Conference final. “They just work hard, and in big games, that’s

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

V.I. Raiders players including Paul Childs, left, and Jordan Kuziek, at practice in Nanaimo on Monday at Merle Logan FIeld, will try to flex their muscle in the Canadian Bowl on Saturday (Nov. 9) when they visit the Regina Thunder.

all you really need, to execute and have a little effort,” Kuziek said. “I think this game’s going to be pretty good.” The finalists have a lot

of similarities, boasting balance on offence and speed and physicality on defence. “You’re going to play a really good opponent for 60 minutes – that’s the biggest thing that we’ve realized in film,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. The Thunder offence is led by quarterback Asher Hastings and his stable of talented, fast receivers. “We have to mix it up and challenge them with different coverages and challenge them with different blitzes and hopefully knock them off their game,” Blokker said. “And be consistent

and relentless.” V.I. linebacker Cole Samson said it starts with shutting down Regina’s run game. “Once we do that they’re going to pass and all we’ve got to do is get our hands on the receivers because they’re not used to being touched,” he said. “So we’ll re-route them and stop the pass.” The Raiders centre their offence around all-star receiver Whitman Tomusiak, but they intend to open up the pass with the run. Kuziek said the Thunder defence will give up holes and if the Raiders’ O-line times things right,

it can take advantage. “Our running backs are so smart and so fast,” he said. “One step and they’re gone. That’s all we need to give them.” Blokker said earlier this week that Jaeden Marwick will be the starting quarterback against Regina. “I think we match up very well,” said Marwick. “I think in the trenches, we have a little size on them. But around the board, the Thunder’s a very talented team, a very well-coached team and they’re going to be one of the toughest challenges of the year.”

The Nanaimo Clippers play one of the league’s last-placed teams, and then one of the league’s best teams. They intend to bring the same kind of energy both nights. The Clips host the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Friday (Nov. 8) at Frank Crane Arena, then entertain the Penticton Vees the next night at the Frank. “They’re all exciting,” said Mason Mitchell, Clippers forward. “It doesn’t matter what team it is, you’ve got to come consistently every night. If we don’t have a good game we aren’t going to win. Whether it’s a top team or bottom team, we’re going to play like we usually do and hopefully we win.” Bo Brauer, Clippers forward, said his team wants to play with emotion this coming weekend. “We’ve got to bring high energy and enthusiasm to our next games and if we can do that then I think we can play really well,” he said. “If you’re not excited for every game you play, it’s really not a good way to go about it.” GAME ON … Friday’s game against the Bulldogs and Saturday’s tilt with the Vees are both 7 p.m. faceoffs at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Raiders chase ultimate goal u From /B1

“They’re going to come out and play, but I don’t think they’re at the level we’re at,” he said. “We’re ready to lay it all out there.” The Raiders have reached this game. Now they can try to reach their goal. “If you win this game,” said Matt Blokker, “then every memory you’ve had throughout the year will stay alive for the rest of your life.”

The Raiders feel as though they haven’t yet played a perfect football game, and they may have one more gear for one last game day. “Hopefully this one we can turn up to the next level,” Jordan Kuziek said. “Who knows? It all comes down to how we travel, show up. We have to be mentally ready.” Jaeden Marwick said the Raiders try not to over-hype the Canadian Bowl or think about what’s on the line at the end of four more quarters of football. “We try to act like it’s another game and keep our minds right and stay focused on the goal ahead,” he said. Cole Samson said if the Raiders stay on track with with their preparations and do all the right things on game day, they’ll beat the Thunder.

Quarterback a prodigal son Raiders quarterback Jaeden Marwick couldn’t have hoped for a better homecoming than this. The rookie, who is from Regina, chose to move west and join the Vancouver Island Raiders. Beginning the year as a backup, he took advantage of his opportunities and was MVP of the B.C. Football Conference final.

Now he leads the Raiders into Regina in a national championship game. “Marwick’s been our starting quarterback since [Jamie] Ybarra got hurt so nothing’s changed in that department at all,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. “We still expect Marwick to be the starting

quarterback.” The pivot said he was trying to put aside the pressure and was looking forward to the Canadian Bowl. “I can’t wait to be back in Regina,” he said. “It’s going to be a blast. Playing football in November and getting a chance at a national title? You can’t have more fun than that.”

The V.I. Raiders sure needed their depth at quarterback, and they might need it one last time. “As of now, we’re going to travel with three quarterbacks and dress three quarterbacks in the game if all three are healthy to go,” said Blokker. Jamie Ybarra, who was the BCFC’s Rookie of the Year and an all-star, was back practising with the Raiders last week and was expecting to receive medical clearance to play after breaking his collarbone in a game in Langley on Sept. 28. “This whole team’s mindset has been that we’re going to be in the national championship,” Ybarra said. “So when I got injured and they told me I’d be out for four to six weeks, I did the calculations and I realized that if I healed fast, then I’d be able to come back for this game. So it was always my intention and I just needed the team to pull through.”

It was nervewracking having to watch the games, he said. Blokker said “it’s huge” if Ybarra is back and able to contribute in the Canadian Bowl. “Everybody got to see, when he got on a little bit of a run, what type of quarterback he is,” said the coach.

all big men and I was way smaller than them,” he recalled. Whether or not the good-luck gesture helped, the Raiders won the championship that day, 27-26 over the Edmonton Wildcats. In his last year of junior eligibility, Samson decided he wanted to play for his hometown Raiders, the team he used to cheer for, and try to win with them. “Coach Snoop said the first day we met that this was going to be a national championship team. So he’s kept his word and I kept mine – I came on the team and I was a leader,” Samson said. “So it’s come down to this.”

Raiders fan now a leader One member of the V.I. Raiders is coming full circle as he takes the field in the Canadian Bowl. Cole Samson, hardhitting linebacker, used to be one of the Raiders’ biggest fans back when he was playing minor football with the Nanaimo Redmen. In 2006, Cole kissed a loonie and his dad Wayne buried it at the centre of the field at Caledonia Park before that November’s national championship game. “In 2006, they were

Hoops season tips off

VIU women’s basketball team sets goals, expectations high BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

No matter what, opening night will bring a new basketball season, new bleachers and a banner. All the VIU Mariners need to bring is their A game. Vancouver Island University’s men’s basketball team holds its home opener on Friday (Nov. 8) when it entertains the Columbia Bible College Bearcats in Pacific Western Athletic Association action. The Mariners tipped off the season last week in Victoria, defeating the Camosun Chargers 77-66. “I feel like we’re on the right track,” said Jason Fortin, VIU forward. “We still have a long way to go.” The Mariners know a lot about the journey after last year’s national championship campaign. u See ‘BANNER’ /33

Vancouver Island University’s women’s basketball team broke through to win a provincial championship last season. It was a special achievement – but it doesn’t count for a single point in the standings now that a new season has arrived. “It’s a clean slate,” said Bill McWhinnie, Mariners coach. “Our team’s different, many of the teams in our league are different. We have nothing to defend – we’re pursuing a new [banner].” The Mariners women opened the Pacific Western Athletic Association campaign last week with a 57-43 road win over the Camosun Chargers. The team showed encouraging signs, but also room for improvement, just as it would expect in early November. “We can only get better,” said Jocelyn Jones, VIU guard. Jones, the MVP of provincials last year, will again be a leader at both ends of the court. Much of the rest of the core is also back, including guard Heather McCarthy and for wards Shayna Worthington, Erin Vekic and Jenna Carver. Post player Alica Grossi and guard Jamie MacFarlane also return, but won’t be able to take the court until next semester. Amanda Tapia, a guard who has trans-

ferred from the States, and local players Mariah Van Sickle and Taelar Keir are some of the newcomers. The group is working well together so far, said Jones. Even if they don’t view this season as a title defence, the Mariners have a boatload of experience to draw on in PacWest play. “It helps a lot, because we know what to expect and we know what we need to do to be able to go out and compete,” Jones said. If the Mariners get back to the big game at the end of the season, they’ll know how to handle it, said the coach. That big game is a long ways off, but the

Mariners know what they need to do in the meantime. “If anything, they’re more focused than they’ve ever been,” McWhinnie said. “I think the experience of winning not only created a great offseason for us, but the girls put in more work than they ever have. “Now they know what to expect, now they know what is sitting for them at the end if they are successful.” GAME ON … The VIU women’s basketball team hosts the Columbia Bible College Bearcats on Friday (Nov. 8) at 6 p.m. at the VIU gym and host the Kwantlen Eagles Saturday at 1 p.m. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

“We won last year and it was such a big moment of all our lives,” Jason Fortin said. “And on the other hand, we’ve got a whole new team [this year]. We’ve got to basically be

leaders and show them what it took last year to get there. And if we work hard enough, anything’s possible.” Fortin and guards Brandon Jones and Clayton Billett are core returnees and

forwards Jerod Dorby and Seth Goodman and guard Liam Horne are newcomers who will contribute. Matt Kuzminski, Mariners coach, said his players have set a goal of trying to repeat as national

champions. “We focus more on the process of getting there,” he said. “So we have an end destination, but we have certain things we want to do on a nightly basis.”

Choir chooses grand night for singing

Members of the Malaspina Choir get some inspiration for their song Ezekiel Saw the Wheel, which they will perform during a concert Nov. 17. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

Malaspina Choir performs concert BY KATHRYN-JANE HAZEL

I

t’s always a grand night for singing when you belong to a choir. Not only is it fun, but it has a load of health benefits, too. As U.S. writer Stacy Horn has said: “Group singing is cheaper than therapy, healthier than drinking, and certainly more fun than working out.” Researchers at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden have discovered that choral singing has as calming an effect as yoga or meditation. A University of Cardiff study found that lung cancer patients who sang in a choir were able to breathe better. A joint study by HarSinging vard and Yale universibroadens my ties of choral singers in Connecticut concluded shoulders, that group singing increased their life improves my expectancy. Other studbalance, opens ies have shown that can boost the my throat and singing immune system, reduce stress levels, alleviate sharpens my depression and anxiety, and help relieve chronic ears. pain. And that’s just the health benefits. The social benefits are also huge. Choral singing reinforces feelings of togetherness and trust, encourages cooperation, and prevents isolation. Malaspina Choir members would certainly agree. “Besides the pleasure from producing beautiful sounds with friends, singing broadens my shoulders, improves my balance, opens my throat and sharpens my ears,” said Charlotte Richardson.   Sue Meredith testifies to the relaxing effects of singing. ◆ See ‘SINGING’ /B5

Mysteries of sound revealed during symphony’s community day

I

open ReheARSAl shows preparations for evening concert.

The mysteries of sound – what instrument makes what noise – are solved during an open house with the Vancouver Island Symphony. When we listen to music on our iPhones, iPods, computers, TVs and at the movie theatre we hear sounds, but do we know the instruments they

come from? And how do all the sounds come together to make music? The symphony reveals the answers to these mysteries on Nov. 16 with its popular Symphony Community Day. The event kicks off at 11 a.m. with the Musical Instrument Zoo, where you can find out what it feels and sounds like to play a trumpet, among other instruments. Symphony musicians will be in the lobby of the Port Theatre to help kids huff and puff

and have a blow, zing some strings and pull a bow, make a toot or have a hoot, or try some rhythm with percussion precision. Many a musician will declare that all it took was someone showing them an instrument for them to decide and declare that was what they wanted to be when they grew up – a violinist, cellist, flutist, trumpeter, etc. The musician of the day is still a mystery to be uncovered during the Noteworthy Kids

event from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The symphony’s fan club meets and learns about a musician and his or her instrument. The day concludes with an open rehearsal with the symphony as it prepares for its evening concert. Find a seat in the theatre, take in a symphony rehearsal, and watch as all the musicians and their instruments come together to make music. Conductor and the symphony’s artistic director, Pierre Simard, will gesture

with his baton and work with the musicians and guest artist to change a phrase here, add an expression there, to give the music just the right feel for that night’s concert, called London – Majesty. The concert, beginning at 7:30 p.m., features Andrew Clark, on French horn, and tenor Isaiah Bell. Tickets for the community day are free but must be reserved in advance. Please call the Port Theatre at 250754-8550 or visit www.port theatre.com.

Orchestra features French horns

I

gueST muSiCiANS join group for fall concert.

Musicians with the Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra say they are fortunate to have, as soloists, two distinguished horn players to bring the music of Telemann and Leopold Mozart to life. Andrew Clark, principal horn, and Heather Walker both play with the Vancouver Island Symphony. Clark recently re-located to the West Coast from the U.K. where he had played with world-class ensembles such as The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. The Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra, directed by Karl Rainer, will perform a program called Horns of Plenty that covers a large palette of repertoire for strings. Georg Philipp Telemann’s Concerto in E-Flat Major and Leopold Mozart’s Concerto for Two Horns in E-Flat will feature the two soloists. The musical colours extend through Robert Volkmann’s Baroque Serenade No. 1, the very Rus-

Singing is a sharing experience u From /B1 “When you are practising you are so intently focused on what you are doing that everything else going on in your life fades to the background and out of your mind, so you leave any stress behind,” Meredith said. Rosalyn Rosher has sung in choirs all her life. For her, singing is both stimulating and joyful. “In the Malaspina choir we learn different kinds of music and new music which is a learning experience in itself,” Rosher said. “It is fun to sing with other people who share your interests and your joy.” And for Malaspina choir president Kathryn Grant, choral singing connects her to the larger world. “I love the synchronicity of a group

CADEt pERfoRMs for veterans, Remembrance Day ceremonies.

Despite this, she still feels nervous before performing. “I’m not really a person who gets nervous that easily but I think I get butterflies for it because I care about it a lot,” Welte said. “I want to do well at it and I want it to be meaningful to other people.” She does more than just perform Last Post and Reveille for veterans, however. She volunteers to set up and serve meals for the Royal Canadian Legion and sells poppies. She enjoys hearing the stories that war vets tell, and knowing their experiences adds to her performance. “When I’m playing it, that’s what I want people [to feel], that’s why I play it slow and I play it really meaningful. I want people to really feel the emotion of it because that’s what it’s meant to be,” said Welte. Besides volunteering and performing for members of the armed forces, Welte also aspires to become a pilot with the Canadian Forces. “I’ve wanted to become a pilot forever,” she said. “Once my brother went into the military, I was like, ‘Oh, that looks like fun.’

The significance of Remembrance Day and the sacrifice of war veterans may be lost on some youth but not on Victoria Welte. Welte, 14, a flight corporal with the Royal Canadian Air Cadets 205 Nanaimo, is drum major for her cadet branch and official trumpeter with the Nanaimo Korean Veteran’s Association and Royal Canadian Legion branches in Nanaimo (Harewood) and Lantzville. The status means she performs Last Post and Reveille at a number of events, including those on Remembrance Day. Welte took up the trumpet to follow in the footsteps of her brother. She spends time honing her craft and said it took a long time to be able to play Last Post and Reveille properly, with many hours of practice.

When Pat Patterson came home from Korea, some of his friends wondered where he’d been because they hadn’t seen him for a while. Patterson had been gone almost two years serving in a conflict often referred to as “the forgotten war.” It was both the first major conflict of post Second World War superpower muscle flexing and residual fallout from Japan’s defeat in 1945 that ended the Japanese empire’s 35-year rule over the Korean peninsula, leaving the victors to divide Korea, politically and ideologically, north from south along the 38th parallel. When war broke out between the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (north) and the Republic of Korea (south) on June 25, 1950, barely five years after the end of the biggest conflict in human history, the world had little appetite for renewed bloody conflict. After three years and millions more military and civilian lives lost as opposing sides battled to a stalemate, a cessation of hostilities was signed July 27, 1953 and troops from 17 United Nations countries that fought the war against North Korea, the Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China, started returning to their homelands, including Cana-

dians, many of whom made their only got their tanks upon arriving way by train across the country in Korea.

SPECIAL EVENTS NOV. 11TH

CHRIS BUSH/THe NewS BUlleTIN

Pat Patterson, who spent more than a year on the front lines with the Lord Strathcona’s Horse armoured regiment, shares his memories of “the Forgotten War.”

u From /B10 Patterson’s replacement tank was hit on Hill 222 during those operations. “We took a hit there,” he said. “Our driver was wounded and our gunner went haywire – right off his rocker.” It was nightfall before the casualties could be moved off the hill and replacement crew brought in. Soon after they moved from there to Hill 187 to support the Royal Canadian Regiment. “We had a pretty soft touch there because we must have been the farthest away from [hill] 166, which was Chinese held and aside from a few mortars and some shelling...” Patterson said and paused to pull out a black and white snapshot of their position depicting a barren, grey blasted moonscape. “It had been covered with trees when we got there and that’s the result of shell fire.” Whatever timber was left was used to shore up trenches and bunkers on the hill. Digging in was back-breaking hard labour. “And we didn’t do it well, either, because we had no idea how long we’d be there, but we stayed the whole rest of the war on that line of hills,” he said. Over time Patterson and his crew were moved closer to Chineseheld positions on the front line, including Hill 355, located about 40 kilometres north of Seoul, which was occupied primarily by U.S. troops. “That was a real mean place to be,” he said. “It was called Little

Gibraltar. I didn’t know it at the time.” Between attacks and patrols, life on the line went on. The men took some of the timbers they’d salvaged and used them to dam up a small stream to make a swimming hole. There were no showers or bathing facilities. “I don’t think I recall having a shower the whole time I was up there,” Patterson said. The fall and winter was bitterly cold and Canadians, sent over with summer gear for an anticipated short conflict, hadn’t received winter supplies, so they cut ponchos out of blankets and improvised to make life as comfortable as possible. “We got one beer a day when we were in the line,” Patterson said. “They’d come up with a case of beer. They’d bring two dozen out and we only had 20 guys, so those four were saved up until the next case came until we could drink more than one beer a day.” They made toilet seats for their latrines by cutting holes out of the wooden Asahi beer cases. A mortar round from a British mortar battery fell short one night and blew up their latrine. The last move they made was to a position called “the Hook” – the brigade front 5 km from their previous position and the site of a major battle between Chinese and U.N. forces in May 1953, two months before the end of hostilities. “I don’t know how long we were on the Hook until we were withdrawn. We were replaced

by B Squadron because we had been there [on the front] a year at this time,” Patterson said. “I don’t know what happened to me. One day I went into the orderly room and volunteered to stay for another year.” Patterson was reassigned to B Squadron, but spent most of his time as a radio operator behind the front line in the battalion’s tactical headquarters with occasional trips to the front to relieve radio operators on leave. “Nothing particularly happened. It was just the regular harassing fire that came in, “ Patterson said. “No matter what hill you were on, you got that.” Patterson stayed until late 1952 when he caught malaria. He was flown back to Canada in December 1952 after spending some time recovering in Japan. “It was certainly an unpopular war here in Canada,” Patterson said. “People didn’t even know what was going on, as a matter of fact. When I came back home people said, ‘Where you been? I haven’t seen you around.’ They had no idea.” Of the roughly 26,000 Canadians who served in Korea, 516 lost their lives there. 2013 is the Year of the Korean War Veteran, celebrated July 27, on the 60th anniversary of end of hostilities. North and South Korea are still technically at war. Patterson retired from the military in 1976. He is currently the director of weapons exhibits at Vancouver Island Military Museum. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

While overseas, Zuber kept a sketch book, which he later used to create paintings from his experiences in war. Thirteen of his works hang in the Canadian War Museum. In 1991, he went to war again, this time for Operation Friction in the Persian Gulf, as a war artist.

teer” in the 1950s, Bieling said. He got involved in the observation nearly a decade ago. During an inventory of military-issued tombstones for the Old Cemeteries Society, he met volunteers at Mountain View Cemetery concerned that people would eventually forget the location of the grave sites. Most of the veterans’ locations were known only by memory or scraps of paper. “In a lot of cases they were being forgotten, especially the vast number of veterans who had tombstones put there by their families,” Bieling said. “They don’t indicate anything at all that the husband or wife had any kind of military service and within a generation or two, the families don’t even know. It’s why it’s so important to get these things written down.” To help, Bieling created a database of graves that could be a guide to new generations of observers across the mid-Island. The map has been expanded to include other cemeteries in the Cowichan Valley and a legion of volunteers has taken on the task of laying down poppies, cedar and crosses at the tombstones. Nanaimo’s special needs students were included with local sea and army cadets to reenergize the Remembrance Day tradition. “We are trying to spread the tradition around the Cowichan Valley and it seems to be taking root again,” he said, adding the Old Cemeteries Society hopes to eventually bring commemoration to every cemetery in the region. Events recognize those that were members of Northwest Mounted Police and the British Indian Army, as well as those who participated in different wars. news@nanaimobulletin.com

The painting on the cover of this special supplement is called Contact, part of the Beaverbrook Collection of War Art in the Canadian War Museum. During an interview in July 1999, Zuber described the events of the night depicted: “They overran us about 10:30 [p.m.] that night. I remember the officer yelling at this guy to pick up the radio. The damn thing was dead, too.”

Lantzville legion’s fundraising efforts focus on cenotaph, memorial walkway

I

pRojECt Cost estimated to be $150,000. By Karl yu The News bulleTiN

The Ministry of Veteran Affairs will provide upwards of $50,000 for a war memorial project in Lantzville. Royal Canadian Legion Branch 257 has been working on a plan for a cenotaph and memorial pathway at Huddlestone Park, with assistance from the District of Lantzville, and was approved for the federal government’s Community War Memorial program, which will match any amount raised up to $50,000. The total cost of the project is estimated at $150,000. As part of fundraising efforts, people can purchase stone markers and have names of Armed Forces veterans, RCMP officers and fire-

fighters engraved on markers that will line the pathway leading to and circling the cenotaph, according to Jim McEwan, Branch 257 cenotaph fundraising committee chairman. The markers cost $300 each. “They are being sold at this time now and people are embracing it quite well, as a matter of fact. It’s quite a popular item,” said McEwan, adding that the path will also provide easy access for people with mobility issues. Jack de Jong, District of Lantzville mayor, said the project has been in the works for two years. The district donated the land and said it is important that donations be quantified as everything raised will be matched by the federal government. “So if we give labour or anything of that nature, the federal government matches the funds, so we’ve kept the record and I think

to date we’re close to $20,000 that the district has allocated to this in terms of land and inkind donations to some extent,” de Jong said. He is optimistic that the rest of the money can be raised, as Lantzville is a generous community. Nanaimo-Alberni Member of Parliament James Lunney said he will be contributing some of his own money to the project. “I’ll be taking one [memorial stone] for my own dad. I made a commitment to that today, and I hope residents of Lantzville and others

that come from north Nanaimo will join in the fundraising effort to make sure this comes to pass so we have the best monument possible right here in Lantzville,” Lunney said. McEwan estimates construction will begin in late-spring and with funding from the federal government could come money from its provincial counterpart. “We’ve made an official application and they [provincial government] are considering it very seriously,” McEwan said. The cenotaph and memorial path are expected to be completed by Remembrance Day 2014. For more information on the project, or to donate, please call the legion at 250-390-2841. This year, Remembrance Day events will take place at the Lantzville legion’s current location. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

It’s Important to us all... On October 8, at a general information meeting, our people were asked: “Should we close on Remembrance Day ?” The overwhelming response was “YES!” So, to recognize those who served in the cause of peace and freedom around the world over the years, and still today...

All Quality Foods stores will be closed Monday, November 11 Remembrance helps us understand the country we live in today and how we can build a better future together. Whether they served in distant lands or here at home, during the epic battles of last century or the strained conflicts of the last few years, we all owe these Canadians a debt of gratitude now and in the future. Quality Foods joins the nation in recognizing the sacrifices and achievements of those who have served in the cause of peace and freedom around the world over the years for the benefit all Canadians. Also important is the need to guard wisely against allowing history to repeat, while helping our young people to understand and to remember what these men and women have done during times of war, military conflict and peace.

“For the Fallen” They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. www.qualityfoods.com

Regular maintenance costs are easily figured but some cars can be very expensive if parts have to be brought in from around the world. Once you have a handle on the above, you can narrow your choice. It is important you like the looks of the second most expensive purchase of your life. However, make sure it serves its intended purpose by answering some questions. Typically, how many people do you need to transport and how far? Is there enough stowage space in the cabin and the trunk or luggage compartment? Do you need V8 power or will an economical four-cylinder suffice? Now go and kick some tires at a variety of dealerships and consider multiple brands because they all have much to offer.

New batch of vehicles will suit any motorist’s style 132hp 1.8L engine from the last model, with one exception. The LE Eco model has a modified valve system to improve fuel economy and pump the power to 140hp. The biggest change is the introduction of a continuously variable transmission for a greater range of gears, improved economy, and a smooth drive.

The Nissan Rogue is practical for people who require extra capacity but don’t want a larger SUV. BY ZACK SPENCER

‘‘

Compact cars or compact SUVs: This is the direction Canadians are heading when it comes to buying a new vehicle. Zack Spencer

’’

So many cars to choose from, so few words available in this tight space! Yes, I know that’s the complaint of every writer, but we truly do have a lot of choice today. And the quality of vehicles is so much higher than it ever was so there is much to celebrate. In the runup to 2014, I will be testing a lot of what’s new and improved. Today, I’ll just offer you five models to consider adding to your shopping list. 2014 Mazda3 The compact car segment in Canada is the biggest by far, with

PHOTO SUBMITTED

over 20 per cent of all vehicles sold. So, the introduction of the Mazda3 is important because it is currently the fourth best seller in this class. The outgoing car was already one of the best handling cars and now with a lighter and sexier looking body, this new car is both eye catching and solid on the road. The base engine is a 2.0L four-cylinder with 155hp, thanks to direct injection. The larger 2.5L engine puts out a healthy 184hp. It is the interior buyers will care most about, and the Mazda3 is a nice surprise, due to class leading available options and a high level of finish. There is a Mazda3 for all budgets.

2014 Toyota Corolla Continuing with the compact car theme, the Toyota Corolla is the third best selling car in Canada but Toyota believes this new model can take the overall sales crown away from the Honda Civic. This new 2014 model is made, and partly designed, right here in Canada with our needs in mind. The Corolla now has a longer wheelbase for amazing interior space, especially in the back seat. The dash is wide and flat for ample room and covered in nice looking and feeling materials, plus there is an available centre screen to use for the radio and backup camera. Powering the 2014 Corolla is the same

2014 Volkswagen Golf This new Golf will be made in Mexico along side the Beetle and Jetta sedan and will go on sale in the spring of 2014. It is wider and longer than the last Golf but also significantly lighter and safer. The base engine will be a new turbocharged 1.8L engine with 170hp but don’t worry the TDI diesel is carried over. The sportier GTI trim is fantastic, with an estimated 225hp, in the Canadian model, thanks to a new 2.0L turbo engine. The interior materials used inside are almost Audi quality. No price yet, but building these new cars inside the NAFTA zone will save money and that will be reflected in the price. 2014 Jeep Cherokee The Cherokee is back and it looks nothing like the boxy truck of old. In fact, this new, small SUV is based on the same Alfa Romeo platform used in the Dodge Dart. It is smooth and

quiet and a pleasure to drive. The Cherokee is also the first vehicle in the world to be equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184hp or the optional 3.2L V6 with 271hp, for just a little more, offering good value. Not to worry Jeep fans, this new Cherokee is available with three AWD systems. 2014 Nissan Rogue You might notice a trend with my 2014 model choices are all compact cars or compact SUVs. This is the direction Canadians are heading when it comes to buying a new vehicle. With this in mind Nissan has an all-new Rogue compact SUV with enough room inside for three rows of seats and room for seven passengers. This is practical for people who require extra capacity but don’t want to buy a bigger or more expensive midsized or larger SUV. Under the hood is a 2.5L four-cylinder used in other Nissan products and is matched to a new continually variable transmission featuring more available ratios and reduced friction. The interior is very well executed, with a dash that looks similar to the bigger Pathfinder. Goes on sale just before Christmas. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

Non- signallers: I want to scream when I am stuck behind a car that fails to signal an intent to turn left until the traffic light turns green. It has to be one of the most inconsiderate acts, especially in congested areas. It’s also an offence, which carries a $121 fine and two-point penalty. Considerate drivers would realize their error and drive on. Ha! They don’t exist.

A few pocket rockets on the market get the party started.

A vehicle doesn’t have to be exorbitantly expensive, have mega horsepower or a fancy Italian badge on it to be fun to drive. In fact, a lot of people seem to agree with that statement, too, since there are a few pocket rockets available on the market that might not compete for the top power specs, but can certainly get the party started.

Toyota Corolla No, you’re not reading that wrong. I did include the 2014 Toyota Corolla on my list. Yes, it’s like automotive bread and butter; you always know what you’re getting and it’s very predictable. But with a complete overhaul for 2014, you could say the Japanese manufacturer has added some jam on top to make it sweeter. New styling on the inside and out makes it more desirable to the eyes. It’s still not as exciting as most of its competitors but the 1.8L, four cylinder does a bang-up job of delivering 132 horsepower and 128 lb-ft of torque.

Kia Soul Kia’s box-mobile continues to deliver strong sales despite angularly-shaped vehicles becoming a trend of the past. Why? Because it has personality. Describing it in one word, I’d say it’s funky. And now, the all-new soul is built on a bigger platform, increasing legroom up front and in the rear. It’s also quieter on the road when revving its 1.6L, four-cylinder engine. There’s also a 2.0L four-cylinder available with 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
