Wartime memories of father remain for Oak Bay man Remembrance Day ceremony Monday Bill Maconachie has two distinct memories of his dad. One is from late 1943, when Bill was a toddler. He and his younger brother Ross, and their mom Margaret, were living in an Edmonton motel, as Roy, a new Royal Canadian Air Christopher Sun Force recruit, Reporting was being

trained in navigation. “I remember dad was with us when I was maybe three or four, but that’s it,” Bill said. “I remember how bloody cold it was and living in very small accommodation. I remember my mother saying it was so cold this particular winter, the gas line broke.” The second memory, when he was four, was from sometime in December 1944 or January 1945. Roy was on leave back home in Oak Bay with his young family after serving his first tour of duty.

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Oak Bay resident Bill Maconachie stands at the Oak Bay Cenotaph on Beach Drive with a photo of his father, Roy, an aviator who died during the Second World War when Bill was very young. “He had put us in a bungalow on Gurney Street,” Bill said. “I remember mom and dad were planning on what they were going to do once the war ended.” About a month after making

those post-war plans, Roy was back in war-torn Europe, flying over the English Channel to Germany every night in a Mosquito bomber. On one of those trips in late

February 1945, Roy’s plane was shot up and had one engine rendered useless.

Wartime website focuses on Victoria’s early days Victoria during the First World War era was a varied mix of beliefs and behaviours Don Descoteau News staff

Victoria around the time of the First World War was not all glory and young men proudly going off to fight for Crown and colony. Despite stories of people like a 41-yearold city accountant identified only as Adams, who went to war in 1916 and died at Vimy Ridge; and former schoolteacher Arthur Currie, who rose to command Canada’s army and was later knighted, there were signs Victoria had a dark side as well. University of Victoria history PhD candidate Jim Kempling has discovered both during the assembly of a new website called A City Goes to War. “It’s important that we remember the sacrifices, but also the nasty stuff that went on,” he said. The city, with its heavy British colonial influences, was actually a rather racist place, he added. The website, unveiled this week, features numerous newspaper headlines and stories that cast a negative light on race in the days before and during the war. Among the news items was the arrival of a boat filled with potential refugees from India, the moves local authorities made to prevent them from landing in Victoria, and the efforts taken to deport them (a court challenge saw them allowed to stay). Another web page details an anti-

if anyone really knew anything about these people.” While annual Remembrance Day ceremonies centre around the tagline, “We Will Remember” – a phrase originally referring to those killed in the First World War – Kempling said, “We’ve really forgotten who these people were.” The site includes more than 2,000 photos, newspaper articles, letters and other documents, and a database with the service records of 6,000 Victorians who served in the First World War. While it currently only contains information about Victoria, the goal is to expand the website to include similar details and stories about Winnipeg and Toronto. Submissions will be solicited from academic sources and moderated, Kempling said, to ensure information is historically accurate. “But there’s still quite a bit to do here. People are still discovering the shoebox in the attic (filled with Photo courtesy University of Victoria Archives & Special Collections memorabilia).” The research project, funded by Canadian soldiers on a troop ship leave Victoria’s Inner Harbour in 1916, with the Empress Hotel in the background.

OUR VIEW

Will Canada remember them? On Monday when people honour our fallen soldiers of wars long past and those serving in uniform now, Canadians will need to start thinking about the future of Remembrance Day and how it will remain connected to new generations. Memories and stories of the First World War now entirely reside in photos, films and text. Those with living memories of D-Day or hunting U-boats on the Atlantic or fighting on the Korean Peninsula become fewer every year. There will be a future not far off when students in Victoria won’t be able to hear first hand from veterans of the Second World War and the Korean War why they fought for the freedoms of others. More recently, Canadians fought and died in the mountains and badlands of Afghanistan, trying nobly, but perhaps futilely, to bring peace and security to a nation with more entrenched problems than can be solved by military action. Although that conflict certainly won’t be far from the memories of the veterans and families of that conflict, Afghanistan is also fading as a significant era for many Canadians. Understanding our past and linking it in meaningful ways to the messages and meaning of Remembrance Day remains a challenge for our society. It will require parents and grandparents to teach their kids their family stories and personal connections with past conflicts to drive home what sacrifice really means. Canada, to varying degrees, is ambivalent about its military and wartime history. Remembrance Day isn’t a statutory holiday in Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and Nova Scotia. Our southern neighbour offers two official days of the year to celebrate its veterans and to remember past conflicts. The frontline face of Remembrance Day in Victoria are dedicated Legion volunteers, a group also aging and with few new people willing to take up the cause. For Remembrance Day to survive, the values of sacrifice, service and courage of the past need to be rekindled for the future. What do you think?

LETTERS

Letters to the Editor

Games will spotlight human rights The line demarcating sport and politics has been blurred in the lead-up to February’s Sochi Winter Olympics. Russian governance has deemed homosexual acts and propaganda in all forms illegal, forcing tremors of controversy to permeate within the international community. The International Olympic Committee has refrained from taking a partisan stance on the issue, attempting to absolve itself of any responsibility for legislation passed by nations hosting one of its semi-annual games. The organization finds itself in a unique position. Its decision to act or not is fated to set a massive precedent for gay and civil rights writ large. Remaining silent undoubtedly yields the best immediate

payoff for the IOC, but may cripple age-old pursuits striving to universalize LGBT tolerance on a global scale. Victoria locals are embedded in a culture that is largely in favour of the right to sexual freedoms, who collectively advocate for equal rights among race, gender and sexual orientation. The attitude here differs greatly from that of Russia; the two settings offer a polarizing glimpse into the dichotomous world of human rights interpretation. This had birthed the question currently stapled to the collective lips of Victoria’s civic consciousness: how can Russian opinion evolve to accommodate the needs of its own LGBT community? Colin McKenna, a provincially

Electronic devices can help save lives In recent cases of people who fell in their residence and were not discovered for days, it is unfortunate they did not have help-summoning systems.  Those use a button worn on wrist or around neck, that communicates by radio waves with a base station connected to a telephone line. An operator answers via speakerphone, which has surprising range. The operator has the individual’s personal help contacts to phone and can phone emergency services. The system works well, provided the monitoring service bureaucracy has competent operators.  There is a significant monthly cost, especially with the optional necklace that detects a fall. Of course they won’t work as well for mentally confused people, who may not press the button.  As well, residence facilities should have a sign on the door to an individual’s apartment or room, with procedure that others will investigate if the sign is not turned around by mid-morning.  Keith Sketchley Saanich

renowned gay-rights advocate, offers a practical approach to locating a resolution. He says, “I think greater education is what’s needed, and that should be coming from other world powers … via the world’s media.” This vision champions empathy and compassion as potential catalysts for positive change. Essentially, McKenna espouses the concept of treating others as you would treat yourself. Such a simple, yet transcendental ideology is the key to recognizing the errors of prejudice. Perhaps Olympic media presents a justifiable starting point, as sport oversteps cultural difference for two weeks. Gray Leigh Victoria

A Victoria-based Chinese association meets Sunday to discuss their hopes for the province’s planned apology for discriminatory treatment Chinese people endured in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Thomas Chan, president of the Victoria Consolidated Benevolent Association, said such an apology should also include

broader public education about the difficulties faced by Chinese immigrants in B.C. at that time. “The education part is more meaningful to the Chinese community,” Chan said, adding this part of Canadian history should not be forgotten nor repeated. “There are a lot of second- and third-generation (Chinese in B.C.) whose family paid that (head) tax. I personally know a few of them.” Between 1885 and 1923, various pieces of discriminatory legislation against Chinese people were enacted, including a federally imposed head tax on all immigrants from China. From 1923 to 1947, the Chi-

nese Exclusion Act restricted potential Chinese immigrants from entering Canada. In 2006, the federal government formally apologized for past discriminations and paid $20,000 to survivors or their spouses. The province announced last week it is beginning consultation with the Chinese community and associations to discuss the wording for a formal apology. Chan acknowledged the Liberals were criticized by the NDP for bringing up the issue during the 2013 election campaign. What was dismissed as a symbolic gesture appears more genuine now, he added. reporter@vicnews.com

Kayaker rescued after three-plus hours in water Christopher Sun News staff

A 50-year-old man is lucky to be alive after his kayak capsized near Discovery Island, leaving him stranded and in the frigid water for more than three hours

LEAF CLEARING

Leaves from the trees that give Oak Bay its name are now falling, and municipal crews have readied the leaf vacuuming equipment for the campaign which will begin soon to clear them from streets and gutters all over the Municipality. The leaf clearing program begins in late October and will continue until all leaves are collected rather than on a pre-determined street by street schedule. The reason for this annual blitz is to prevent catch basins and storm drains from becoming clogged to the point where they cannot cope with the runoff from a moderate to heavy rainfall. It takes quite a while to cover the entire Municipality, however, and the more leaves there are on the street at any one time, the more likely it is that problems will occur before our crews can get to the area. We can handle the leaves deposited on the street by the normal forces of nature. We run into difficulty, however, when residents rake leaves onto the street from their own properties in anticipation of the arrival of our vacuum, or leave other garden refuse or tree prunings on the boulevard expecting it to be picked up with the leaves. Piles of leaves on the roads also create safety hazards for cyclists. We will pick up only leaves from the boulevard (no garden refuse or tree prunings), but please DO NOT RAKE LEAVES ONTO THE STREET! Please do not place leaves in plastic bags as they get caught in the vacuum! In the interest of pedestrian safety, please do not place leaves on the sidewalk. Thank you for your cooperation. “LEAVES ON STREETS = BLOCKED CATCH BASINS = FLOODED BASEMENTS” Phil Barnett, Superintendent of Public Works

taken to hospital. Oak Bay Sea Rescue spokesman Kim Bentzon said it’s uncommon for someone to last more than three hours in the water. “It comes down to the temperature of the water (currently 8 C) and body mass as to how long a person can survive,” he said. The man was wearing multiple layers of clothing, a windbreaker and personal flotation

device when he was found. He had lashed himself to the kayak. Bentzon said the boat had no emergency signalling equipment. Rescue personnel were dispatched at 5:30 p.m. after the rental kayak company reported the man missing. Bentzon added kayakers should carry flares, a whistle or some kind of sounding device and a cellphone. reporter@vicnews.com

F

ilmmakers in Greater Victoria are sharpening their pencils, tightening up their scripts and thinking a little bigger this fall. With the announcement that CineVic, Victoria’s Society of Independent Filmmakers, has been named a recommending partner for the second year of Telefilm Canada’s Micro-Budget Production program, local filmmakers have a chance to secure $120,000 toward their project. While that may seem a sizeable amount of cash, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to the overall budget of most feature films. Nonetheless, says CineVic director Bryan Skinner, the grant represents a serious breakthrough for local filmmakers. “This is a really incredible opportunity for filmmakers to make a narrative film and use Victoria as part of that,” he says. “Normally people who make narrative films have to finance it themselves. Having $120,000 free and clear to start your low-budget, quarter-million dollar feature is a big leg up.” Skinner, chair of the selection committee that will judge the Victoria projects and pick one film to forward on to Telefilm, expects a large number of local entries. He sees CineVic’s involvement in the competition as a “catalyst” that will help teach filmmakers to prepare their work for serious scrutiny by juries that can influence funding decisions. While filmmaking begins more as a labour of love for those involved, finding the cash to bring ideas to the big screen takes determination and a bit of financial knowhow,

University of Victoria associate professor, filmmaker and writer of the film Two4One Maureen Bradley and CineVic President and producer Daniel Hogg take some time out at UVic. Two4One was selected to receive funding through Telefilm Canada’s Micro-Budget Production Program last year – the same program which will see CineVic recommend a local filmmaker for $120,000 towards their first feature film this winter.

says filmmaker and University of Victoria fine arts professor Maureen Bradley. She earned one of the Telefilm grants last year after applying through Vancouver-based Women in Film and is in the

process of finding an extra $100,000 or more to begin filming her next movie. “You have to be an entrepreneur to be an independent filmmaker,” she says, noting that she spent most of the previous weekend on Facebook trying to drum up support for her Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for her featurelength film, Two 4 One. The grant money means the difference between cobbling together a short film using volunteers, she says, and keeping people around for three weeks to create something more substantial. Bradley has also secured funding from various other grants, including one from the B.C. Arts Council, in her bid to raise enough capital to create a narrative film. Her goal is to complete production by May and have it ready for submission to the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Bradley, who is encouraging some of her film students at UVic to consider submitting projects to CineVic, acknowledges that Victoria has more recently been a centre for documentary films as opposed to narrative-style projects. Skinner emphasizes that both styles are welcome under the grant program. “It’s aimed at people who have done shorts, but have not directed or produced a feature in the past,” he says. “This is a career-enhancing program.” Selection by the CineVic jury early next year does not guarantee a filmmaker the cash. The Victoria society is just one of 28 recommending partners across Canada that will be submitting an entry for consideration by the Telefilm jury. In the end, eight or nine will be selected to receive funding. The deadline for submission to CineVic is Dec. 20. For more information on submitting a feature film idea for funding, visit CineVic.ca/node/21283 or call Skinner at 250-3891590.

War stories collected through years Continued from Page A1 While he and the pilot miraculously made it back to England after five hours of flying, their bullet-riddled plane crash-landed, killing them both. Roy was 35. A few months later Germany surrendered. “They were nicknamed widow makers, flying coffins,” Bill said of the Mosquitoes, largely made of wood. “If it was ever hit, they were toast.” Bill is among those Canadians who grew up without their father. His feelings about his dad have been shaped by stories from other people. Roy was born in Calgary in 1910 and grew up in Oak Bay, graduating from the local high school. He studied at Victoria College, which would become the University of Victoria, and graduated in 1935 with a geology degree from UBC. He married Margaret Elizabeth Watson at St. Mary’s Church in March 1936. In 1939, the year Bill was

born, the couple came back to Oak Bay. When war broke out, Roy joined the reserves. His father, Charles Maconachie, was a veteran of the Boer War and First World War. Roy grew up listening to his dad’s war stories – one had him leading a group of 1,000 soldiers on horseback . Bill thinks those stories influenced his dad’s interest in the military. “When the war did start, numerous young people volunteered because they couldn’t get work anywhere else,” he said. “For others it was a patriotic duty.” After Roy’s death, Margaret became a store clerk and later a secretary with the school board and Victoria College. She retired in the 1960s, remarried in 1969 and died in 2004. Bill visited his father’s grave in 1965, located outside of London, England. He also met people and distant relatives who knew his dad. He learned that Roy flew toward Germany at 11:30 p.m. every night,

returning at five or six in the morning. Because of the darkness, Roy apparently wondered at times if he was flying upside down, as he couldn’t see the horizon. Bill, a retired teacher, annually attends the Oak Bay’s Remembrance Day service at Uplands Park with his wife. “To me it brings back a lot of memories,” he said. When he began his career, many of his co-workers were veterans and they told him war stories. “Gradually (my) kids decided they wanted to come too. I think as they got older, they began to realize it was a significant part, not just of history in general, but pretty significant in the country’s history and in our family.” Oak Bay’s Remembrance Day ceremony happens at the memorial cenotaph in the 2800block of Beach Dr. on Monday (Nov. 11), starting at 10:55 a.m. An extended version of this story is at vicnews.com. reporter@vicnews.com

Rams await winner of Bulldogs’ playoff game

The Mount Douglas Rams are considered the top high school football team in the country, and are the next in line for the winner of the Belmont Bulldogs and St. Thomas More Knights AAA playoff game at 3 p.m. today (Nov. 8) at Burnaby Lake. The Rams will host the Bulldogs or Knights at Westhills Stadium on Friday, Nov. 15, with a 2 p.m. kickoff. The Bulldogs are currently enjoying their best season ever and are looking no further than today’s test against the Knights, despite dropping a 69-6 loss to the Rams at Westhills last week. To be fair, the Rams have crushed every AAA team they’ve faced and the Bulldogs are only one of two teams to score against the Rams in league play.

Grizzlies on six game point streak

It was the sixth straight game in which the Grizzlies (11-6-21) earned a point, as the club is now third in the B.C. Hockey League’s Island division. The Grizz are in Duncan tonight against the Cowichan Capitals and home to the Caps tomorrow at Bear Mountain Arena, 7:15 p.m. face off. The Grizz earned five of a possible six points on its interior road trip last weekend, all within a 43-hour span, in which they tied the Trail Smoke Eaters 4-4 on Friday (Nov. 1), beat the Salmon Arm Silverbacks 3-2 on Saturday and beat Vernon on Sunday.

Blue Jags, Rams roll into hockey playoffs

The St. Michaels University Blue Jaguars senior girls field hockey team wraps up the final day of the AA provincial championships in West Vancouver today. On Monday the first place Jags shut out the second-place Mount Douglas Rams 4-0 in the city championship May Tully Cup. Olivia Donald scored twice for the Jags and Aveen Glen and Kasey Boyle added one each. The AAA Rams are also advancing to provincials, Nov. 13 to 15 in Burnaby, after grabbing a wildcard spot on Tuesday. After the Rams finished third at the AAA Islands behind Cowichan and Frances Kelsey, respectively, the team qualified to play Churchill and West Vancouver for the final spot at provincials. Rams star Lindsay Cole, a U18 provinicial player, scored twice in a 3-2 loss to West Van. But Cole and U18 teammate Lexi de Armond (Grade 11) combined for a seven goals in a 7-3 win over Churchill to secure a spot at AAA provincials.

Cougars slowed by injuries Cougars relinquish hold on top spot for first time since 2011-12 season Travis Paterson News staff

The injury bug doesn’t take favourites and the Victoria Cougars, who’ve enjoyed a mostly healthy run the past few seasons, is in the midst of an injury shakedown. Missing as many as nine of its regulars of late has cost the Cougars first place in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League for the first time in well over two seasons with a 5-3 loss to the surging Campbell River Storm at Archie Browning Sports Centre on Sunday. It was only the Cougars’ (14-2-1-1) second regulation loss of the season but, coupled with an overtime loss earlier this season, it was enough to dislodge the crew from its current hold on first place. The Cougars played Sunday’s game without captain Mark Walton, Michael Fretz, Nicholas Bower, Wade Johnson and Jordan Marciniak. By the time it was over, Blake Roney and Jordan Davie were injured too. It’s meant moving defencemen to forward, leaning on some affiliate call-ups from midget, and also using a pair of forwards from the UVic men’s team in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League, Joe Gauthier and Cody Mueller. The Cougars visit the Peninsula Panthers (8-8-2-1) tonight at Panorama Rec. Centre, while the Saanich Braves (7-9-1-0) host the Storm at Pearkes arena. Since suffering a pedestrian 4-1 loss to the Oceanside Generals on Dec. 3 of 2011, the Cougars have earned points in 75 out of 78 games, just three regulation losses in that span, making it to two straight gold medal finals of the Fred “Cyclone” Taylor Cup provincial championship. It’s dominant, but it’s also set the bar for the VIJHL, as the second-year Nanaimo Buccaneers (16-3-0-0) are now first in the league

Meanwhile mid-pack teams such as the Storm (9-7-1-1) and Westshore Wolves (8-8-3-2) threaten every night with the league’s most dangerous scorers. The Storm’s Brendan deVries leads the league with 15 goals and 31 points in 17 games, with teammate Brayden Taekema third in scoring at 15 goals and 29 points. The Wolves’ Brett Lervold is second overall with 11 goals and 30 points in 19 games. The Braves dropped a 5-2 loss at home to the Comox Valley Glacier Kings on Friday (Nov. 1) with both goals coming from James Sneddon. On Wednesday it was

announced that former Saanich Brave Jack Palmer was traded from the Brandon Wheat Kings to the Victoria Royals as the local Western Hockey League team sent two fifth round bantam picks for the 6-foot-2, 180-lbs. forward. Palmer, born in 1995, hasn’t found the scoring touch in the WHL that he had with former VIJHL MVP Ty Jones on the Braves two years ago, when Palmer scored 24 goals and 29 assists in 37 games as a 16-year-old rookie. The Royals are on the road in Seattle tonight and Portland tomorrow. sports@vicnews.com
