Will we forget? As Remembrance Day approaches, is there a tendency to be complacent? Tim Collins News contributor

A

movement to re-imagine Nov. 11 appears to be nibbling away at the foundation of Canada’s day of remembrance – a day set aside to honour those who have sacrificed their lives for our country. One of these movements involves the distribution of white poppies, says Inga Kruse, executive director of the Royal Canadian Legion B.C./Yukon Command. It’s an idea started in Britain in 1933 as a protest against wars of any kind. With the rise of fascism in Europe soon after, the idea never took hold. Its resurgence now, though, has Kruse baffled. “It demonstrates a tremendous naivety and misunderstanding of the red poppy,” she said. Capt. (N) Luc Cassivi, commanding officer at CFB Esquimalt, knows Nov. 11 doesn’t resonate with some young people the way it once did but insists the day has lost none of its relevance. “(Remembrance Day) is about keeping alive in the minds of the young Sharon Tiffin/News staff how we’ve gotten to where we are today.

Island Health takes a peek into the future Public input sought for five-year plan

Kyle Wells News staff

Island Health is thinking about the future and wants the public’s input on what direction it needs to take.

The health jurisdiction, also known as Vancouver Island Health Authority, is developing a new five-year plan to help guide its activities on the road to 2018. “We do it periodi-

cally and it provides us with a strong sense of where we’re going, what our focus and priorities are,” said Island Health spokesperson Sarah Plank. “It helps to guide the decisions that we make around healthcare delivery across the region.” The authority has already identified what it sees as the pressing issues coming into the next five years. Population growth, changes and aging are all seen as factors which will influence how health care is delivered in the future. The population of the Island is expected to rise in general, and especially in specific communities. The rapid growth of the West Shore, for instance, is cited as an upcoming challenge, with the population expected to

grow by 10 per cent by 2018. Other areas, such as the West Coast of Vancouver Island are expected to decrease in population, by about 3.5 per cent. These fluctuations could lead to a need to change the delivery model and shift services from certain areas of the Island to others. The “uneven distribution of health,” as an Island Health backgrounder on the process calls it, is another concern. Life expectancy for First Nations people is six years shorter than for other residents and the rates for chronic disease are higher. Remote and rural communities also have a lower life expectancy, particularly the North Island and the Port Alberni area. In these communities the rates

for external causes of death, such as accidental poisoning, suicide and car crashes, along with alcohol and drugrelated death rates are more than double the average for the province. “There are a few challenges,” Plank said. “We want to do things better and we also want to do better things, to make sure what we’re doing is having the greatest impact.” Island Health is now turning to the public for input on the already identified areas of interest, as well as new ideas on the needs of specific regions. “We want to hear their thoughts about the opportunities and challenges we’re facing,” Plank said. “In every community there will be different issues that will be important

and that will be prominent. It’s not a cookie cutter, we need to tailor the services that we’re providing.” Community open houses are being held throughout Vancouver Island, as well as Salt Spring Island. Open houses will be held in Victoria on Nov. 26 at the Sandman Inn (2852 Douglas St.), in Sidney on Nov. 27 at the Mary Winspear Centre (2243 Beacon Ave.) and in Langford on Nov. 28 at the West Shore Parks and Recreation fieldhouse (1767 Island Hwy.). All open houses run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. A short survey is also available online at viha. fluidsur veys.com/s/ ih2018. The strategic plan is intended to be complete by this spring. editor@vicnews.com

Undersea cable pitched for clean energy Sea Breeze Power Corp. wants to build a 50-kilometre transmission cable under the Strait of Juan de Fuca Tom Fletcher Black Press

Daniel Palmer/News staff

Katharina Iwasyko, left, and Nadiya Kravchenk help with the monthly production line of handmade perogies in the basement of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church in Victoria. Both women were raised under a repressive Ukrainian regime that forbade them from speaking of a forced famine in the country’s Central and Eastern regions in 1932-1933.

Ukrainian community marks anniversary of forced famine ‘Holodomor’ saw millions killed in act of genocide by Stalinist Russians in early 1930s Daniel Palmer News staff

Once a month, hundreds of handmade perogies are expertly stuffed and folded by volunteers in the basement of St. Nicholas Ukrainian Catholic Church. In Victoria’s Ukrainian community, it’s not hard to find help when needed, especially when it comes to food. “Food is part of our culture,” says Kathy Walsh before switching to Russian and exchanging pleasantries with older volunteers. November marks a sombre month for Ukrainians, who for the past 80 years have been commemorating one of the darkest events in their history: Holodomor.

In 1932, Soviet troops swept through much of Central and Eastern Ukraine to seize stockpiles of food and control an independence uprising. While estimates vary, five million to 10 million people died from starvation and related sicknesses by the following summer. “I couldn’t speak about it, I wasn’t allowed,” said Nadiya Kravchenko, who still bears the emotional scars from her previous life, where public criticism of the Soviet regime meant certain jail time. She moved to Victoria six years ago to be closer to her adult son, who like many younger Ukrainians know little about Holodomor (“Death by hunger” in Ukrainian). “It was a manmade famine, it wasn’t war,” said Katharina Iwasyk, whose family immigrated to Canada in 1950. Iwasyk, 80, still remembers the taste of spoiled sauerkraut masked with sugar as a two-year-old girl. It was the only food her mother could salvage in the winter of 1932. “I try not to think about it,” she said. The Ukrainian government formally

recognized Holodomor as genocide in 2006. And while many of the 1.2 million Ukrainian-Canadians hold quiet annual ceremonies to commemorate the event, the local community wants to raise its public profile during Holodomor’s 80th anniversary. The University of Victoria hosts a Holodomor workshop on Nov. 15 at 1:30 in the MacLaurin Building, Room D110. On Nov. 16, visit the Ukrainian Cultural Centre for a one-man play, Holodomor: Murder by Starvation, by Father Edward Evanko, a former Broadway performer. A commemorative ceremony also takes place Nov. 23 at Cadboro Bay United Church. “It’s an event about which so little is known, and people have no appreciation for a major tragedy that is largely forgotten or hidden,” said organizer Robert Harchak, who oversees fundraising and food production at the church. “We’d like to change that,” Walsh said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

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. Manson said U.S. policy led to major wind development that leaves the Pacific Northwest with an excess of power in spring, meaning the Washington power utility has paid B.C. Hydro to take its excess when hydro dams are full. 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 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. editor@vicnews.com

A Victoria-based Chinese association meets Sunday to discuss its hopes for the provincial government’s formal apology for past discriminatory practices. Thomas Chan, president of the Victoria Consolidated Benevolent Association, has shared his own thoughts on the matter in advance of the meeting. Such an apology should include a formal acknowledgment of the poor treatment Chinese people endured in the late 1800s and early 1900s, he said,

Depart from Victoria - Over 50 tours available!

and broader education about their place in B.C. history. “The education part is more meaningful to the Chinese community,” Chan said, adding this part of Canadian history should not be forgotten or 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 Chinese Exclusion Act restricted Chinese people from entering Canada. In 2006, the federal government formally apologized for past discriminations and paid $20,000 in compensation related to the

head tax, 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 appeared then as a symbolic gesture appears more genuine now, he added. “The timing is better than in April or May, because at least people don’t see it as an election promise.” The province is not considering financial compensation. Chan said the Chinese community is not looking for that, since it was already addressed by the federal government. reporter@vicnews.com

Colbert Report skewers Esquimalt over bong shop feud U.S. film crew talks to councillors, bong shop owner in satirical coverage of mascot ban

Daniel Palmer News staff

An ongoing dispute between an Esquimalt bong shop owner and the township has drawn the attention of none other than Stephen Colbert. In a six-minute segment on The Colbert Report Nov. 5, Councillors Meagan Brame and Tim Morrison are subjected to Colbert’s satire

for their attempts to restrict the use of a bong mascot along the township’s main drag. “I don’t think we came out too bad,” Brame said. “It’s OK to poke fun of yourself a little bit.” Colbert’s film crew stopped by The Bong Warehouse in May, said owner Ryan Place. Place’s business has been the subject of complaints from neighbours since he started using

Rain garden gnomes kick-off city stormwater awareness Daniel Palmer News staff

Walking through Laura Porcher’s Gonzales property is like looking 50 years into the future. The gutters around Porcher’s roof funnel rainwater into a 1200litre cistern, which she uses to water her backyard vegetable garden and chicken coop. Near the sidewalk, a simple rain garden grows where there was once grass, while permeable concrete absorbs runoff along the driveway. “It was about sustainability for me,” said Porcher, who completed the landscaping renovation last February. “It made sense to me to have something harmonious with nature that wouldn’t require a lot of upkeep, and it’s very simple and beautiful.” In 2014, Porcher will become one of a few Victoria homeowners eligible for a full 40 per cent discount under the City of Victoria’s new stormwater utility. For residential homeowners, the city will soon begin calculating the utility charge from the “hard area” footprint, or roof coverage, of each home. Driveway footprints will be averaged at three per cent of the roof’s footprint, while annual discounts will be available for homes that have rain gardens, cisterns, green roofs or permeable surfaces. Permeable paving includes

Ed Robertson, assistant director of public works for the city of Victoria, displays one of the rain garden gnome signs that will be placed around the city to raise awareness about how stormwater is managed and used. This gnome was placed in a Robertson Streen rain garden. everything from porous concrete to gravel to “grass-crete,” or concrete stones that allow grass to grow between them, said Ed Robertson, assistant director of public works. “They’re not excessively more expensive than asphalt driveways,” he said. “The more pressure we can take off the stormwater system helps to reduce flooding in the longterm, and it would help us to delay or reduce some of the upsizing of the system.” The city is modelling its stormwater program on similar pro-

grams in Waterloo, Kitchener, Edmonton and Portland. Staff are planning a series of open houses beginning later this month to garner public input before presenting a report to council in January. Homeowners eligible for stormwater credits will be able to apply annually for fee reductions, said Brianne Czypyha, the city’s stormwater management specialist.

a promotional mascot last spring. Morrison, who takes the brunt of Colbert’s prodding, put forward a motion in April to require Esquimalt businesses to get a permit when using costumed mascots in public places. “I’ve been a long-time fan of Stephen Colbert and I’d probably rank The Colbert Report as my favourite comedy talk show, so it’s

very surreal to see yourself in your own hometown on your favourite show knowing an international audience is watching,” Morrison said. Place said he hopes the international attention is good for business. “It was like Hollywood showed up in my store,” he said. “It was fun.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

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?

OPINION

myVictoria This week’s online poll

Regional districts’ value questionable Dermod Travis Guest columnist

Who knew? Count ’em all up and B.C. has 1,660 elected officials sitting on 250 local councils and school boards across the province. That works out to one for every 2,000 registered voters. It’s also a lot of paycheques. Some of the lucky ones collect two if they happen to be chosen to sit on a regional district. The two biggies, of course, are Metro Vancouver and the Capital Regional District. According to their websites, “Metro Vancouver delivers regional services, planning and political leadership on behalf of 24 local authorities” and “the Capital Regional District is the regional government for the 13 municipalities and three electoral areas that are located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island.” That’s 40 communities with a combined population of 2.7 million or a little more than 60 per cent of B.C.’s total population, each elbowing the other for political space within the two districts. The City of Toronto is home to 2.8 million residents. Practically speaking though,

neither Metro Vancouver or the CRD have much real authority despite their lofty mission statements, because Big Brother is never really far behind. Think debating clubs with privileges. Should one of the districts actually choose to bite off something contentious, chances are it will still need Victoria’s stamp of approval. Metro Vancouver wants to burn a cool half billion dollars on a new garbage incinerator, but they’ll need Victoria’s a-OK before striking the match. In fact, they need it just to put a proposed solid waste management bylaw into effect. The folks at the CRD are being called upon to make all the politically smelly decisions regarding a new sewage treatment plant, while the purse strings remain tightly controlled over at the offices of Partnerships B.C. The federal and provincial governments called it a condition of funding. Cynics might have another expression for it. So if it’s all mostly show, imagine how local taxpayers must feel. Voters don’t get to choose their district representatives, local councils do. The power of the ballot box is far removed from the daily

goings-on at the two regional districts. That’s why it’s far easier to vote to try and place a sewage sludge treatment facility in someone else’s backyard as the CRD sewage committee wanted to do earlier this year. Although the regional district boards aren’t exactly omnipotent, sitting on one does make balancing the family budget a little easier. Last year, councillors and mayors from the Lower Mainland who were among the lucky few to be chosen as Metro Vancouver directors collectively took home $870,000 in stipends plus $61,000 in expenses; and all of it on top of their local council salaries. Christmas even came early for them. Last month, Metro Vancouver awarded its directors a 2.3-percent pay increase retroactive to the beginning of 2013. All nice work if you can get it, but likely not the most ideal model for regional governance in 2013. Two mega cities isn’t the answer, but maybe 40 communities is no longer appropriate. And it’s time for the provincial government to step up and show some leadership on the issue. Dermod Travis is executive director of IntegrityB.C.

2014 Winter Games spotlight human rights

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 midmorning.  Keith Sketchley Saanich

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.

Yes, I think it’s important to recognize the sacrifices made by previous generations to protect Canada’s sovereignty No, I don’t feel any connection to veterans, nor do I agree with glorifying war in this way Possibly, but if I don’t attend a ceremony in person I may watch either the local or national remembrance activities on TV Last week’s question: Should the Highway 1 corridor from the West Shore to downtown be further widened so crashes don’t bring commuter traffic to a standstill? • Yes, this is a major route on which traffic needs to be kept flowing during commute times (67%) • Possibly, but more emphasis should be placed on other options such as a dedicated bus lane (28%) • No, the inevitable delays after vehicle crashes are something West Shore residents have to deal with (5%) – visit vicnews.com to vote

Become an Active Choices Coach

FREE TRAINING to be a volunteer Active Choices Coach The benefits of regular physical activity include:

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 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

Feedback: Sarah, a Coach found out that inspiration and support can work both ways on the physical activity journey. She said, “when I decided to become an Active Choices Coach, I thought I’d be spending my time motivating someone else to get more active. I didn’t realize that being a Coach would motivate me to reach my activity/fitness goals too.”

CALL TODAY to register by calling Angela 1.877.522.1492 or email angela.activechoices@shaw.ca The price of physical inactivity is very high, and is estimated to cost BC $573 million every year (Colman and Walker, 2004). Couch potatoes are now being grouped with cigarette smokers as taking their lives into their own hands (Rowe and Kahn, 1998). According to the recent research report these figures have not changed much over the years.

Home sales reflect catchup from past Christopher Sun News staff

Greater Victoria home sales were up 37 per cent in October compared to last year, according to figured released by the Victoria Real Estate Board. According to the board’s multiple listing service system, 512 properties were sold last month compared to 373 in October 2012.

There were 4,322 active listings. “While we are all very pleased with the October results, we are tempering our enthusiasm,” said Shelley Mann, board president. “After a slow market for the last half of 2012, we are still climbing back to previous sales numbers.” The benchmark, or median price for a single-family home in Greater Victoria was $485,400, an increase of 0.15 per cent over the

Benchmark prices for condos and townhouses were $283,100 and $393,100, respectively. There were 17 waterfront homes sold, up two from last October, and 16 homes sold for

“There’s still a need for the human race to answer the pleas of others … to give them the same freedom we enjoy and stand against the darker side of humanity. Use this day to remember that and honour those who have already made that sacrifice.” Victoria High student Ashley Rourke, 17,

VICTORIA HOSPITALITY AWARD WINNER August 2013

The August winner was Dillon Carfoot of the Fairmont Empress. Udo Stevens, an Oxford Properties Corporate Concierge in Calgary, Alberta, wrote to us with the following story: I would like to share an exceptional hospitality story which happened recently and involves one of the Les Clefs d’Or Concierge Association members in Victoria, Dillon Carfoot, of the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Mrs. W.R., an employee of one of our tenants, shared the very unfortunate circumstances surrounding a planned trip to Victoria with her daughter, who, at only 25 years of age, has been diagnosed with incurable cancer. Mrs. W.R’s daughter chose Victoria as the city she would most like to visit while she is still able to travel. I contacted Dillon Carfoot, of the Fairmont Empress and Vice-Director BC Region, Les Clefs d’Or Canada and asked him if he might be able to assist to make this trip to Victoria extra special. Dillon was so very generous! He upgraded W.R and her daughter to the Fairmont Gold floor for their Victoria stay and also arranged complimentary LA Limousine service to and from the Victoria International Airport to the Fairmont Empress. Through Dillon’s professional relationship with Les Clefs d’Or, he was also able to procure a very special rate for a seaplane excursion from Victoria’s Inner Harbour to the Butchart Gardens which included fine dining at their restaurant and limousine transportation back to the hotel. We were able to cover the remaining cost of the seaplane excursion through our Calgary team donations and were also able to include Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Empress. Following her return from Victoria, Mrs. W.R wrote “The trip was fabulous, everything (and everybody) was perfect. My daughter felt so very special. I will treasure the memory of this trip in my heart forever”. It was Dillon’s outstanding service and assistance that made this trip to Victoriafor W.R. and her daughter possible and such an unforgettable experience.

position better than Tim Garthside, a 29-year-old veteran of the Afghanistan war. For him, Remembrance Day is about awareness that people like him have willingly gone into harm’s way and sacrificed themselves to protect the interests and moral imperatives of Canadians. He said Canadians should embrace Remembrance Day and respect that sacrifice, but that the remembrance should extend beyond Nov. 11. “Nov. 12 rolls around and it seems as though most people just go straight back on with their lives with little to no understanding that I don’t go through a day that I don’t think about those who have fallen and those who are still suffering – that I couldn’t forget if I tried,” Garthside said. The challenge may be rooted in numbers. “During the ‘great wars’, everybody knew someone who was serving … often who had died,” Kruse said. “Today’s conflicts aren’t like that, but the sacrifices of the men and women who serve are no less.” Kruse said that she feels that there is an opportunity to redefine Nov. 11 as a day when we acknowledge that there are and always have been people willing to protect what Canadians hold dear. “We should never forget that there’s a cost to our freedom and ideals,” she said. “This is the second Canada Day. It’s the day we thank those who sacrifice so that we can live in peace.” editor@vicnews.com

Attention filmmakers:

TELEFILM’$ coming

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.

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.

LayTOn bOOK haS LOCaL COnneCTIOnS

It seems fitting that Brad Lavigne is launching his new book, Building the Orange Wave, the Inside Story Behind the Historic Rise of Jack Layton and the NDP, in Victoria. Lavigne, the late NDP leader’s principal secretary for a decade and the party’s 2011 national campaign directors, attended university in the city. In those days he worked with VictoriaSwan Lake MLA Rob Fleming in the student movement. Fleming is credited in the book with

asking Layton to run for the leadership, planting the seed for a decision that helped move the party from mediocrity to the official Opposition. The former Victoria city councillor calls Lavigne’s work “the definite book on Jack Layton.” “What people will learn (from reading the book) is that none of this happened by accident,” Fleming says. “Jack had a plan and a team of smart operatives behind him and they executed that plan.” The book launches at 5pm Nov. 12 at Smith’s Pub, 777 Courtney.

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

Defenceman Kevin Massy scored his first BCHL goal in overtime to give the Victoria Grizzlies a 4-3 win over the Vernon Vipers on Sunday. 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

Campbell River Storm’s Alex Brewer, front left, checks Victoria Cougars’ David Marshall, who tries to get the puck loose from Storm goalie Jack Surgenor at Archie Browning Sports Centre on Sunday (Nov. 3). with 32 points, to the Cougars’ 30. 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

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

Rams top South Island Travis Paterson News staff

The volleyball program at Mount Douglas secondary is riding a bumper crop with two junior girls teams this year. The Rams Gold shredded the junior girls top tier this season and won the South Island junior girls championships last weekend. The Rams Purple, which competes in the second tier South Island volleyball championships this weekend, finished tied for third in the league standings. “We have a good future ahead for Mount Doug with dedicated group of Grade 9 athletes on the Rams Gold, and Grade 10 athletes on Rams Purple, who play disciplined volleyball,” said coach Brian McKinnon. The Rams Gold went into the South tournament having lost just one set during the fall sea-

Forgetful Gorge look to forge on An everyday blunder by Gorge FC cost them a forfeit loss to Cowichan last week in the top division of the Vancouver Island Soccer League. First-place Cowichan (6-1-1) got the call an hour before the Friday game that eighth-place Gorge (1-7-0) was without its ID cards and could not play, according to VISL rules, which was affirmed by commissioner Vince Greco. Gorge allegedly left the ID cards behind in a dressing room at a game one week earlier. The cards must be presented to officials before every game for verification. sports@vicnews.com

Swan Lake shakes up fundraising strategy Facing huge costs for upgrades, nature sanctuary moves to raise profile Edward Hill News staff

The floating boardwalk across Swan Lake offers views of rare turtles, eagles on the hunt and the splendor of nature, all cocooned away from the nearby hustle of busy roadways and shopping centres. But its boardwalk is in desperate need of replacement at a price tag that's a king's ransom for a nonprofit – $700,000 at least. The nature house that educates some 60,000 youth each year has aging displays designed from when their parents were kids. Like any non-profit society with land to steward and infrastructure to maintain, extra cash is always in short supply. But after nearly 40 years, the Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary Society is taking a new tack for fundraising and has shaken up its internal management structure. In September, Swan Lake eliminated its executive director position, and in its place hired a marketing and communications manager with the sole job of hunting out grants and raising the profile of the sanctuary. The municipality of Saanich provides the lion’s share of its operational funding – $310,000 in 2012 – but to upgrade key attractions like the 800-feet of boardwalk, it needs to find grants and generous donors. “We couldn’t exist without Saanich’s help, and that means our programming can’t fail. But we needed a different plan. An executive director tends to be a spender – not one that necessarily increases revenues,” said Erik Lund, the board chair for the Swan Lake society. “We need to get more aggressive with finding funding, particularly for the boardwalk. We need to raise the membership and profile of Swan Lake, we need to improve the website and (nature house) displays. We need to do things so the place looks

Lloyd Skaalen, 83, left, and 89-year-old Michael O'Hagen walk along the popular but aging boardwalk on Swan Lake. The Swan Lake society needs hundreds of thousands of dollars to replace the boardwalk, and has shaken up its management structure to fundraise more aggressively. as successful as it is.” Lund stressed that eliminating the executive director position wasn’t a signal the society was in dire straits, but a change in strategy on how to fund capital projects. School and adult programs are fully subscribed, he said, and they’re looking to add programming specifically for seniors. “Is Swan Lake solvent? Absolutely. Could we do better? Definitely,” he said. “By August we had two grant applications in the works. We should have had 20.” Swan Lake saw funding from donations and grants fall off between 2011 and 2012. The organization drew about $60,000 from a reserve fund to help finance the refurbishment of what is known as the Martelli House, a house near the nature sanctuary now rented to the Garry Oak Ecosystem Recovery Team. The society has four rental properties in all, and all need repairs. “Like all organizations they have to be creative and nimble and find ways to increase revenues, so it can promote what an amazing place it is,” said Coun. Susan Brice, the Swan Lake board liaison for Saanich council. June Pretzer, the Swan Lake site manager and one of seven employees – the site also has about 250 volunteers, said Swan Lake remains

a natural jewel for the city, but infrastructure is starting to fray at the edges. Staff also push wheelbarrows around the wetland to keep the trails maintained. “We could use equipment. We don’t even have a tractor,” she remarked. “We’re all pretty strong here, but there is a limit. “There is absolutely a lack of funds for the amount of staff and 150 acres. We really do need to find more funding.” Donations and grants funneled into Swan Lake are producing results,

Pretzer noted. After pollution and abuses lasting into the 1970s, the lake itself is seeing its water quality improve and Blenkinsop Creek is now seeing small numbers of spawning salmon. “We have fish here. We’ve improved the water quality enough that salmon can spawn,” she said. “There is a lot to be done here, but it is an urban jewel. To have access to such a unique and wonderful natural place in the middle of an urban area is quite special.” editor@saanichnews.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.

We should eat more alkaline food. We all know that swimming pools can only work if they are acidic/alkaline neutral. This is still more critical for our body. Basic information to have an alkaline body: USDA now recommended on their website. MY plate.gov 50% should be alkaline food (vegetables, salads, legumes, fruit, berries, mushrooms) 50% can be acidic food (Meat, fish, shellfish, eggs, rice, nuts, cheese. Less or no bread, noodles, cereals, cakes. No sweets, deep frieds.) Most North American diet is 90% acidic food. If you have trouble to achieve at least a 50% in alkaline food and 50% acidic food, consider to take a supplement like Bell Acidic #39 Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive and comes with a guarantee. It helps to have a healthy alkaline balanced body and prevents many discomforts, including indigestion and stomach acid reflux coming up, which a majority of people suffer with. 60 million in North America. We should not ignore that Dr. Otto Warburg M.D. was awarded 2 Nobel Prizes for proving that an alkaline balanced body can absorb up to 20 times more oxygen than an acidic body.

Circulation: 98,000 Size: 5.83”W x 14”H Half Page Colour

Ad Due: Oct 30th Ford F150 B.C. is truck country, and there is a multitude of products to pick from, whether you are a weekend odd-jobber or need something to haul your tools to the job site. Oh, yes, and many folks just like trucks. Today, I’ve just picked five trucks to give you some place to start your search for the truck that will suit you best in 2014.

2014 GMC/Chevy Silverado/ Sierra

This half-ton pickup has gone through some monumental changes this year. What an improvement over last year with a very comfortable and refined interior on all trim levels, and three engine choices: the Eco Tec 4.3L V6, 5.3L V8, and the 6.2L V8. With so many changes and enhancements to this vehicle you will really have to wait for my full review on this vehicle in the coming weeks to get the complete picture.

2014 Ford F150 EcoBoost

With more than 100,000 EcoBoost engines produced monthly, you can bet a majority of these engines are finding their way into the 2014 F150 pickup. This truck holds the record in Canada for highest pickup sales, and at 12.9/9.0 L/100 km (city/highway) it keeps the money in your wallet a little longer.

2014 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel

This is a much-anticipated truck from RAM and is one I am anxious to see. With a 3.0L V6 Diesel engine with a Torqueflite 8-speed transmission, not only will it give you 420 lb-ft of torque and plenty of towing capabilities, it will also reduce CO2 emissions and run on B20 Biodiesel. It’s a game-changer.

2014 RAM ProMaster

After a long run with the Dodge full-size RAM van there was a void in the marketplace for a spacious cargo van, a void that was quickly gobbled up by the Mercedes Sprinter and the Nissan NV. Based on the Fiat Ducato, this van has some RAM branding of its own and is available in a wide range of wheelbase options and two roof heights. Engine choices will be the Penastar 3.6L V6 or the turbocharged 3.0L EcoDiesel 4-cylinder engine.

Can the 2014 Toyota Tundra compete with the big boys? This is the year to see.

Ian Harwood

There is plenty of excitement around this vehicle.

2014 Toyota Tundra

This comes with a new body style this year, impressive hood and fender design. Toyota has also included a Western-themed truck called 1794 Edition, which happens to be the founding year of a Texas ranch where the Tundra plant is now situated. This truck’s interior is covered with Saddle tan brown leather seats and rich maple wood grain panels throughout. The Tundra is powered by a 4.6L or a 5.7L engine. Can it compete with the big boys? This is the year to see. If you want to talk trucks or chat about what might make your truck ‘purty’, please drop me a line. I would also like to see pictures of what you have done to your truck in the way of customization. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

Fun and sporty at the right price 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 me, 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.

2014 Ford Fiesta ST If its exterior colour, say the one painted in Green Envy, doesn’t catch your eye, perhaps its

exhaust note will. When you hear the 1.6L 4-cylinder, turbocharged, EcoBoost engine of the Fiesta ST rev, you’ll probably turn your head. Yes, it’s a subcompact but it doesn’t feel like it when you’re working through the gears of the 6-speed manual transmission. Ford’s newest mini powerhouse comes with a whopping 197 horsepower and 202 lb-ft of torque. It’s the same engine paired with the Focus ST, but in a smaller package. Its sport-infused suspension, gearbox, phenomenal handling and host of creature comforts make it even better to drive. You just might make your

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.

2014 Fiat 500L

If the 500 was too small for you Fiat fans, here’s your answer: the 500L. The longer wheelbase cutie is more practical than the pint-sized version and has more room. And two more doors! Powering the 500L is a 1.4L, 4-cylinder, MultiAir turbo engine that pumps out 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. Since it’s a bigger car, it feels bigger to drive. But visibility isn’t compromised and there are a couple of great gearboxes to choose from: a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed Euro Twin Clutch automatic transmission.

say it’s a funky car. 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 4-cylinder engine. There’s also a 2.0L 4-cylinder available with 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.

2014 Mazda3 Sport

For the 2014 model year, Mazda completely overhauls their No.1-selling sedan and hatchback: the 3. Expect a more mature (but not dated) styling, a driver-focused cabin and a host of technological gadgetry that makes staying “connected” behind the wheel more user friendly, without trying to take away focus from the act

of driving. Among its tweaked features, you’ll find brand new interior and exterior styling along with the implementation of their high compression ratio engines, better known as SKYACTIV. Two engines and transmissions are offered. There’s the 2.0L 4-cylinder SKYACTIV engine with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic transmission, available on either the base GX or mid-grade GS models. It produces 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. Then there’s a 2.5L, 4-cylinder SKYACTIV engine for the GT trim, which only comes with a 6-speed automatic. It generates a healthy 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque. Either is a treat to drive with excellent urban or extra urban characteristics. alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid

SUPER SAVINGS $ 00

Say ‘Hy’ to five new hybrids There’s a new breed of hybrids hitting the streets that are closer in performance and price to their gasoline counterparts. Not only has the hybrid driving experience improved, but lighter and more compact new battery technology takes away less cargo space and fuel economy is even better, especially with plug-in technology. Hybrids not only save on gasoline, they also save on

maintenance, especially brake system repairs, and they typically come with longer drivetrain warranties. These new hybrid examples are all entries for 2014 Canadian Car of the Year.

Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid is not just the first Volkswagen hybrid, it’s the first hybrid with a turbocharged gas engine

and a rapid-shift 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox (DSG), instead of the usual CVT automatic. A compact lithium-ion battery pack also takes up less trunk space and even allows a pass-through feature (with fold-down rear seats) for longer items. Preserving Jetta’s sport-sedan qualities, the hybrid’s electric motor boosts powertrain performance and optimizes fuel economy.

Honda Accord Hybrid

is the first full-hybrid from Honda. Its unique two-motor powertrain operates in three distinct driving modes in which the Atkinson cycle engine is completely de-coupled (EV), used as an electrical generator (hybrid), or drives the wheels (engine). The result is incredibly good fuel economy, considering this is a fully equipped (including leather and nav) big sedan. The under-hood powertrain gymnastics are barely discernible inside the cabin.

New hybrids are lighter, more compact, perform well Porsche Panamera S e-Hybrid

is a four-door, four-seat supercar with a lavishly luxurious interior. The “e” denotes that it’s a plug-in hybrid and it has more than double the electrical power (95 horsepower) of its hybrid predecessor, plus a new li-ion battery pack. Its electric-only driving range is 18 to 36 km and it has a top speed of 135

Infiniti Q50, the new hybrid version, offers 354 net horsepower making it a highperformance sport sedan. Impressive propulsion

comes from the combined efforts of a 3.5L 24-valve DOHC aluminum-alloy V6 gas engine and a 50 kW electric motor that’s rated at 67 horsepower, plus an innovative one-motor/twoclutch motor control system. The Q50 Hybrid is available in both rear-wheel drive and what Infiniti calls Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. Precise handling is provided by its 4-wheel independent multi-link suspension and an innovative Direct Adaptive Steering with five handling modes. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Porsche Panamera S e-Hybrid

A myth abounds among self-righteous, over-cautious drivers that only one left-turning car at a time is permitted to enter an intersection on a green light. Those who adhere to this unwritten ‘rule’ annoy those behind and hold up the flow of traffic. It is especially annoying when so many larger B.C. centres have intersections large enough to accommodate two and often three vehicles. What drives-u-crazy? keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

run-up to 2014, I will be testing a lot of what’s new and improved. Today, I offer five models to consider adding to your shopping list.

2014 Mazda3

The compact car segment is the biggest class of vehicles purchased in Canada by far, making up over 20 per cent of all vehicles sold. So, the introduction of the new Mazda3 is important because it is currently the fourth bestseller in this class. The outgoing car was already one of the best handling cars, and now with a lighter and sexier looking body, the 2014 is both eye-catching and solid on the road. The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp, thanks to direct injection. The larger 2.5L engine puts out a healthy 184hp. It’s the interior that buyers will care most about, and the Mazda3 is a nice surprise thanks to class-leading available options and a high level of finish. Starting at $15,995 and running up to $29,895, 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 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.

2014 Volkswagen Golf

This new Golf will be made in Mexico alongside 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 Jeep with 170hp – Cherokee 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 materials used inside are

almost Audi quality. No price yet, but building these new cars inside the NAFTA zone will save Volkswagen money, and that will be reflected in the price.

2014 Nissan Rogue

You might notice a trend with my 2014 model choices: they’re 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 for seven passengers. This is practical for people who require extra capacity but don’t want to buy a bigger or more expensive mid-sized or larger SUV. Under the hood is a 2.5L 4-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. The 2014 Rogues go on sale just before Christmas.

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’s smooth and quiet and a pleasure to drive. The Cherokee is also the first vehicle in the world to be equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184hp or the optional 3.2L V6 with 271hp, for just $1,300 more, offering good value. Not to worry Jeep fans, this new Cherokee is available with three AWD systems zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca
