Biological station earns heritage status By KarL yu ThE NEwS BULLETiN

The Pacific Biological Station has been recognized by the Government of Canada for its 105 years of contributions to fishery and aquatic research. The station on Hammond Bay Road was designated as a site of national historic significance by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada and Parks Canada Tuesday. One of the first fishery-based research

facilities in Canada, the station has been crucial to the study of commercial fish population and knowledge of salmon stock distribution. Mark Saunders, Pacific Biological Station division manager for salmon and freshwater ecosystems, said he was excited about the recognition. “I started my career here about 32 years ago and just have an appreciation for the sense of history, having been with a couple of generations of scientists that

have been in the biological station and the contributions that they make both domestically with our fisheries here and internationally,” Saunders said. “The work that’s been done out of this station is pretty phenomenal.” Among notable research at the station was that of the late William E. Ricker, which examined the effects of fishing on fish production and led to a better understanding of fish population. u See ‘RESEARCH’ /5

Tutors will target higher grad rates I CENTRE WANTS to find mentors for aboriginal students.

By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

A new group of volunteers will help Nanaimo’s aboriginal students make the grade. Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre has launched a volunteer recruitment effort, with aims of connecting more than 50 mentors and tutors with students struggling to reach their potential. It’s part of a new push to boost high school graduation rates. According to the Nanaimo school district, 22 per cent fewer aboriginal students earned Dogwood diplomas last year compared to the general school population. In 2011, 52 per cent of aboriginal students completed high school versus 69.6 per cent of students overall. The not-for-profit wants to see graduate rates for aboriginal students bumped up to 100 per cent – and pairing students with afterschool support is being seen as a key part of reaching the goal. Research shows mentors benefit teens by giving them encouragement and help with homework, said the aboriginal centre’s executive director Chris Beaton, adding that 52 per cent of students are less likely to skip classes if they have a mentoring relationship. “For a lot of our kids, they need that one-on-one support to know someone cares; that someone is watching their success and believes in their potential and supports them,” he said. “For some students that’s all it is going to take to push them forward and complete high school.” The Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre was launched in June

CHRIS BUSH/THe NewS BUlleTIN

Rudy, Operation Red Nose mascot, signs the permission form allowing Cpl. Norm Smith, head of Nanaimo RCMP Traffic Services, to do a criminal background check at the 2013 Operation Red Nose kickoff luncheon Tuesday. About 20 volunteers signed up at the kickoff and more are still needed for the holiday-season designated driver service.

Designated driver service provides safe rides By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Operation Red Nose aims to get drivers and their passengers home safely this holiday season. The launch event for the 18th campaign in Nanaimo was hosted at Nanaimo Golf Club Tuesday, attended by Operation Red Nose organizers and representatives from the RCMP, ICBC, the community, corporate sponsors and about 20 volunteers. Operation Red Nose provides a safe way for people and their vehicles to get home from holiday festivities rather than risk the dangers and potentially costly consequences of drinking and driving. The designated driver service is confidential and for anyone who does not feel they should drive home for any reason in the Nanaimo region from Lantzville to Ladysmith. With just a phone call, Operation Red Nose volunteers will come out with a car and a designated driver, pick up vehicle owners, their passengers and vehicles and drive everyone and their vehicles home safely. The service is provided for

donations, which support PacificSport programs to help local athletes, youth leadership programs and children’s sport camps. Donations also finance the Don Long Memorial Bursary given annually to one PacificSport student/athlete for outstanding volunteer efforts, dedication to their chosen sport, performance in that sport and commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Don Allan, program coordinator, said last year the designated driver program got 1,600 people in Nanaimo home safely and raised nearly $15,000. He hopes to see at least $20,000 raised

from this year’s program, but it will take a lot of volunteers to fill the demands for rides. “Right now we’re sitting at about 80 volunteers and we’d like to double that in the next couple of weeks,” Allan said. “We’d like to have 160. The more we have the smoother the program runs and it’s a little easier on everybody.” Corporate sponsors, such as Budget Car and Truck Rentals, Columbia Fuels, Tom Harris Cellular and Van Houtte and others provide vehicles, fuel, coffee, communications and some of the Red Nose volunteers. This year’s service is available 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., beginning Nov. 29-30 and Dec. 6-7, 13-14, 20-21, 27-28 and Dec. 31. To book a ride, please call 250755-6969. For more information or to volunteer, please call Allan at 250740-6572 or e-mail don.allan@ viu.ca.

with a vision to help more students succeed in the education system. Aboriginal students are lagging behind their non-aboriginal counterparts and efforts to change graduation rates don’t seem to be improving the numbers fast enough, according to Beaton, whose organization is searching for solutions. “I think the silver bullet is a puzzle, and it’s when we bring all those pieces together that we’ll really be able to achieve what we want,” he said. “Mentors and tutors are an important piece of that puzzle.” The new pool of volunteers will be aimed at not only providing mentorship to teenagers several hours each month, but free tutoring to people in university struggling to afford academic aid. Sherry McCarthy, aboriginal student representative for Vancouver Island University’s student union, said the budding resource is “awesome” and an initiative students success could depend on. There are those who need help from tutors, but “tutors are not exactly very cheap,” said McCarthy, who pegs the average cost at $25 an hour. If students are on academic probation, they are given one semester to correct their studies or face being “kicked out of school for a year and then it’s hard to get the kids to come back. It’s better to just keep them where they are at [and] this is something to help,” she said. Tutors are needed for a wide variety of subjects, from physics and anthropology to English. To mentor a high school student or become a tutor contact the Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre at 250-753-6911 or e-mail cbeaton@nanaimoaboriginal centre.ca.

VIU students leading privacy workshop

Research continues at station u From /1 His Ricker Curve math model is still used by fisheries in Canada and around the world. The road leading into the station, Ricker’s Curve, is named after him. “Bill Ricker was a scientist here and really one of the first scientists that began to put some quantitative modelling around the ideas about spawning and recruitment and what it was that maintains salmon populations,” said Susan Farlinger, Pacific region director general from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. “Really only after he initiated that, that a lot of the modern work in fish population dynamics come about, so he really was a pioneer,” she said. “He’s certainly a scientist to be proud of and there are many scientists after him that have followed in that tradition here at the Pacific Biological Station.” Research currently taking place at the station includes stock assessment, aquaculture and ocean science. Since its establishment in 1908, the station has expanded to include 22 structures on site. Along with the Pacific Biological Station, the St. Andrews Biological Station in New Brunswick, which was also established in 1908, was also commemorated Tuesday. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

previous years there has been a wait list of vendors looking to join in the event, which hosts an average 10,000 shoppers

over four days. Nanaimo offered the right opportunities to expand, she said, adding she likes the ‘huge’ population

base, central location, larger venue. The event will kick off today (Nov. 14) at the Beban Park social centre, which used to host the Nanaimo Christmas Market. The event was cancelled indefinitely by city staff members this year because of declining table sales and attendance. “I think global warming has affected us and we’re moving south,” said von Conruhds. “This is just a great, great opportunity to have all the Kringle family and all it’s fun and festivities become part of Nanaimo’s Christmas events.” The market was started in Qualicum Beach two decades ago by von Conruhds, who wanted to create a familyfriendly event that inspired the joy and happiness of the holiday season. In 2010, the market moved to Parksville and this year it will celebrate its 20th season in the Harbour City. Its organizer hopes to attract a recordbreaking 12,000 people to the market this season with an array of entertainers, door prizes and more than 150 crafters. Chris Barfoot, City recreation coordinator, said city staff members are pleased to see the Kris Kringle market step in and fill any gaps that might have been left by the cancellation of Nanaimo’s own Christmas market. The annual market had been put on by the city for more than a decade to showcase handmade crafts, but was cancelled because of a trend in declining vendors. There was a 70-per cent drop in early table sales this year over 2012. There were also only 2,400 shoppers last year compared to about 5,000 in 2004. The Kris Kringle event kicks off with a ribbon cutting ceremony, cake and balloons at noon. The market is open Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10; $8/students and seniors; free/children under 12. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Cedar Community Secondary School students Kirstyn Nygren, left, Katrina Vizely, Jenna Pritchard and Emilia Smith are hoping to build a school in a Third World country as a legacy for the soon-to-be closed school.

Cedar students building school’s legacy By Karl yu the News BulletiN

Despite the acrimony surrounding the impending closure of Cedar Community Secondary School, students are looking to leave a positive legacy. Students at the school are working with charitable organization Free The Children and aim to raise $10,000, which will be used to build a school in a developing country. “Because our school’s closing down, we want to be able to build a legacy for Cedar and by doing that, we want to be able to give a school to a child in need in a developing country, so by building a school there, they can have education and have something that a lot of kids at Cedar are losing,” said Katrina Vizely, a Grade 12 student. The site of where the school will be built is yet to be determined as the students have a

Facebook group where members are researching and voting on different countries – Kenya is currently in the lead – and not only will donations from students be needed but also from the community. A number of community fundraisers are being planned with a movie night, beer and burger dinner, and Mother’s Day tea among the events scheduled. The group is accepting donations on five levels – platinum, gold, silver, bronze, and in-kind and corporate sponsorship will be welcomed as well. “We have little brick house cardboard boxes and we’re going to put those in local businesses and stores where people can donate money to that,” said Jenna Pritchard, another Grade 12 student. Pritchard is relieved to be graduating but said that it will be a difficult transition for current Cedar students that will go either to

John Barsby Community School or Ladysmith Secondary School. “Cedar is a community and home and there are so many people who feel comfortable here and thrive here because it’s smaller and it’s accepting and I think it’s going to be really hard to go to bigger schools and different schools,” she said. Kelly Barnum, who teaches drama at the school and is sponsor teacher, said that the project is a testament to the character of the students. “I think it says a lot ... it really shows the maturity that these girls and the rest of the group have, in that they want to leave something behind,” Barnum said. “They’re not focusing on the loss, they’re really just looking at, ‘What can we do to be remembered by?’” Anyone who wants to take part can contact the school at 250-7222414 or e-mail cedarlegacy@gmail. com. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Five years after purchasing Nanaimo Centre Stage, civic leaders want to know if it’s worth further investment. Nanaimo city council has commissioned a new ‘comprehensive’ report to set the stage for future debate on investment in the 100-seat theatre. The call for information was unanimous during a budget meeting Nov. 6 and will look at issues ranging from potential funding requirements to the number of user groups and costs to operate Centre Stage. According to Mayor John Ruttan, there is “lots” of community concern the city is throwing good money after bad with the Victoria Road building. At the same time, the Port Theatre wants to know if the city plans to contribute to its proposed performance stage. Before any decisions are made, councillors need to know the condition of the city-owned Centre Stage building and what it will take to make it viable, he said. Early estimates pegged the cost to renovate the building’s exterior at $800,000, but city staff members warned they won’t know the total expense until they open up the building. They also said there will be ongoing costs to maintain the 118-year-old structure. “[People have asked] is this still a building worth investing in and the answer is we need more background information,” Ruttan said. “With that, we can sit down

and look at what we’ve got and make a decision on how best to move ahead.” If the report determines the costs to keep Centre Stage are massive, “it will definitely have bearing on how we will proceed,” he said, adding he’d rather see a heavy investment made in the Port Theatre. Discussion about theatre expenses was revived in October, when city councillors agreed to increase the budget for wall repairs by $34,700. Coun. Bill McKay said then that he believed the additional expense was only the tip of the iceberg and called for officials to consider investment alternatives, like the Port Theatre’s studio stage. He recently made the motion for staff to prepare a report, which he says will give the city proven figures to determine whether Centre Stage is the best place for investment. “My concern is investing another million dollars in a ... building that really doesn’t have any significant heritage value. It’s just a building and is there other solutions out there that we can look at?” McKay asked. Camela Tang, president of the group managing Centre Stage, expects the report will show the theatre is a good investment. But she says it is unfortunate city officials are seeing two theatre venues as an ‘either-or’ situation. “Could they not both exist?” she asked of the Port Theatre studio and Centre Stage. “We are on the heels of ... the cultural plan, where it was very clearly identified that we must explore the need for small performance spaces. We should think [about] how we can accommodate both.” news@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Report shows venue potential Governments are often criticized for continual commissioning of studies, not only for the cost to taxpayers but also for the lack of progress on given issues. But in the ongoing case of Nanaimo Centre Stage, proceeding slowly and with caution is likely the best way to decide whether this downtown arts venue is truly the answer to the question of a small performance space for local artists. Last week city councillors supported a motion by Coun. Bill McKay to study the repairs needed to the Victoria Road theatre. The building is 118 years old and in need of external envelope repairs, but city staff and council worry the cost could increase if further repairs are needed once work begins. Council was reluctant to spend the money when the repairs first came to light last year but heart-felt presentations by artists who use the building convinced councillors of its value. Moving forward with a viability report means decisions are made not on emotion, but on fact. Complicating matters is the potential expansion of the Port Theatre to create a brand-new small performance space connected to the world-class theatre. Council is currently considering this an either-or decision but some advocates are asking why the city can’t have both. The city’s cultural report show a $150-million impact from the arts and culture sector on the Nanaimo economy, and with an estimated 70,000 tourists from the conference centre hotel alone expected annually in the downtown core, the city needs a vibrant arts district to keep visitors and residents alike engaged and entertained. But like any public project, only so much money is available. Whether the city invests in Centre Stage, the Port Theatre expansion or both, the decision must be made with clear information on the future potential of each project’s viability and the patience of the Nanaimo taxpayer in mind.

endorsed Redford’s proposed “Canadian Energy Strategy,” which B.C. rejected last year. A draft of the strategy released last summer contains no specifics on how it would facilitate a pipeline project from Alberta to B.C. It talks about developing Canada’s energy reserves and at the same time somehow reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promises a final version next spring. Oh, and Quebec refuses to participate. Ottawa has sole jurisdiction over inter-provincial projects such as Northern Gateway and the proposal by Kinder Morgan Canada to expand the 60-yearold Trans Mountain pipeline. If there is to be some extra revenue for B.C. from oil traffic, it could theoretically take the form of a toll on pipelines. Redford pointed out the problem with that idea in her speech to an energy forum in Vancouver last week. She noted that 42 per cent of B.C. natural gas is piped through Alberta to markets. If B.C. can toll Alberta oil, the same could be done with B.C. gas. None of B.C.’s five conditions has yet been met. Legally, they don’t have to be, except for the one about accommodating aboriginal title. u Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com.

City hits wrong note in trumpeting arts To the Editor,

Re: Study charts arts economic impact, Nov. 12. How convenient that the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation has released a study showing the arts and culture sector here amounts to about $150 million a year in direct business and spin-offs. Well this really adds some weight to council’s recent investments, doesn’t it? It helps justify our tax dollars being spent on the purchase of a theatre, the renovation of the art gallery, and subsidies for Port

Place and the convention centre, to name only a few examples. I mean what’s a couple million dollars’ investment in light of the hundreds of millions the booming arts and culture scene will produce for Nanaimo, right? Wrong. Taking a closer look at NEDC’s study, it’s lumped in such things as software development (creating web pages, making games), and publishing (newspapers, magazines). While these areas might fall into someone’s definition of arts and culture, these

businesses are doing fine without any subsidies from Nanaimo city council, not because they want to, but because they’ve had to. The portion of the sector that is receiving money from council probably amounts to less than 10 per cent of economic activity in this sector. But now with council’s investments, that should show a measureable increase next year, at least in the construction sector. I just don’t see the rationale behind council’s investments. It skimps and saves on the basic services

we all need, meanwhile it’s totally spend happy with pet projects and salaries. What I’d like council to do is stop spending on frivolous things until such time as it gets its house in order. Show us you can go one year without increasing taxes or bumping up our rates. Because in the real world people don’t get two to three per cent pay increases every year, and a visit to the new art gallery is not going to help us pay our bills.

Clark’s job promises just pipe(line) dreams To the Editor,

Re: Clark speech focuses on job creation, Oct. 31. Professional politician Christy Clark is just giving us the all-too-familiar job creation song and dance numbers, plus using the fake gold-painted carrot on a string to hypnotize us even further into believing her sales pitch that good times are a coming. This is nothing more than the usual pipeline dream, filled with a lot of hot air, which, as usual, will cost the taxpayers a lot more money than we can afford, especially these days. Nanaimo city council will approve the Duke Point pot rezoning because of a lot of continuing tax revenue that it will generate. Isn’t that illegal to get money from the proceeds from a grow-op? The taxpayers’ money is yet again being spirited away on these very foolish boondoggles.

Pipeline deal is dangerous To the Editor,

Re: Premiers find common pipeline ground, Nov. 7. Apparently Christy Clark and Alison Redford have patched up their faux uneasy relationship. It was always clear that the initial tough stance Clark took with her “five conditions” was simply a get-elected ruse for we B.C. lemming voters and that deals for pipelines, tar sands bitumen,

Re: Island Health seeks feedback on health care, Nov. 5. I was delighted to read this. One hopes parents take note and insist their children are sent out to play with friends instead of remaining indoors in front of the Internet. Childhood obesity is truly worrisome and can be attributed in part to spending too much time indoors on the Internet. A sedentary life should be avoided.

Change’s report on global warming and climate change is both alarming and devastating. Canada is now the premier global pariah regarding environmental and climate sustainability. Clark and Redford are fighting it out as to who will be the gold medal flag bearer that will lead us over the cliff for a few shekels of gold. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is cheering them on.

Bring on pot, garbage To the Editor,

Re: Take sober look at pot zoning, Editorial, Oct. 31. We paid heavily for Duke Point to be blasted 30 years ago and civic leaders still can’t attract industry to fill it. Civic leaders show no restraint on raising residential taxes yearly. We need the pot growers and the waste to energy, for starters.

Neil Saunders Nanaimo

Watching the Remembrance Day ceremonies, I was again reminded of the sacrifice of those who fought and died for our freedom. I also wonder what they think about the right of a monopoly corporation to demand, either that we accept their active radiation device on our homes and castles, or alternatively, that we pay an extortionate fee for the privilege of not having it? Hydro doesn’t have to do this. It can put its smart meter transmitter on the other end of the unique line that brings power to my home. I recently heard a local lady proudly tell how she had reduced her hydro bill to only $15 per month. Does she realize that unless she takes a smartmeter her bill will increase by 200 per cent? I have no quarrel with those who accept the device on their home. We have found ourselves at similar junctions before and have made our individual choices: to smoke or not to smoke; to use asbestos insulation or not, etc. But never before have we been told that unless we take a product like an active radio transmitter on our home, we will be forced to pay an extortionate fee to a monopoly for the privilege of not having one.

FOUNDaTION GIveS $50,000 toward Travellers Lodge.

A $50,000 donation from the Nanaimo Foundation will help a non-profit society build a new care facility for people with advanced dementia. The Nanaimo Travellers Lodge Society, a non-profit society which cares for nearly 100 Nanaimo residents with advanced dementia, will

put the grant toward the construction of Eden Gardens, a new care facility that will be built at 1917 Northfield Rd. “The new building project will enhance the elders’ living space,” said Janeane Coutu, Nanaimo Travellers Lodge board director. “It will create an environment that embodies and fosters caring, interacting with other living things, spontaneity, and joyful moments.” Since 1982, the Nanaimo Foundation has granted more than one million dol-

lars to many organizations and worthwhile projects in the central Vancouver Island area. “Our role in the community is to connect and share with people who care,” said Ted Carson, foundation chairman. “This significant donation will help elders with dementia who need around the clock health care. We are happy to have helped in this project.” For more, please visit www. nanaimocommunity foundation.com.

Charities earn money by cleaning up litter on city streets Workshop provides Alzheimer’s information For the 11th year in a row, Nanaimo non-profit groups were out on city streets, picking up litter while earning money to support their organization’s community activities. The 2013 Partners in a Cleaner

Community program involved 15 registered non-profit organizations that cleaned up more than 200 kilometres of neighbourhood streets, park areas and boulevards. Five hundred volunteers par-

ticipated in the litter collection drive, collecting more than 450 bags of paper, plastic, glass, tires and other debris. Participating groups received $50 per kilometre for the routes covered, raising a total of $10,000 for

the groups involved. Groups interested in participating in the 2014 program should watch for announcements in February. For more information, please call Nanaimo Public Works at 250-758-5222.

Alzheimer’s disease is the second most feared disease for Canadians as they age. With nearly 20,000 Nanaimo residents 65 years of age or older according to the latest census, dementia is becoming a pressing health issue locally. To help residents, the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. brings its free workshop, Getting to Know Dementia, to Nanaimo on Nov. 21. “Participants will receive basic information on dementia and the impact it has on the individual, their care partners, and their support network,” said Jane Hope, the society’s support and education coordinator for the central Island. The introductory session reviews the challenges of receiving a diagnosis of dementia. Participants will learn about the different types of support available throughout the dementia journey, how to begin planning for the future, and strategies for living well. People with a diagnosis of dementia, care partners and family members are all invited to attend. The workshop is not intended for the general public or health-care providers. It runs from 10 a.m. to noon at the Alzheimer Society Resource Centre, 200-1585 Bowen Road, Nanaimo. Pre-registration is required. For information and to register contact Hope 250-734-4170 or jhope@alzheimerbc. org.

By Shari BiShop BoweS A decadent chocolate mousse dessert created by a Vancouver Island University baking and pastry arts student won top prize in a competition focused solely on an ingredient that is near and dear to millions: chocolate. Miriam Popma almost didn’t enter the Gourmet Warehouse Cacao Barry Callebaut Chocolate Challenge because she thought she wouldn’t have enough time to create a recipe and test results before the Oct. 10 competition in Vancouver. Encouragement from baking instructors Martin Barnett and Ken Harper changed Popma’s mind, so she set out with five other VIU competitors to create her entry, a dessert of chocolate mousse layered with cake crumbs and a light orange curd. Coated in chocolate ganache, the dessert was finished with a raspberry sauce, fresh raspberries, and some candied orange zest. “Miriam’s dessert was unbelievable, and the judges said it was hands-down the best dessert,” said Mark Pennington, regional sales manager for Barry Callebaut Chocolate. Popma created the mousse and other ingredients in advance, and transported them to Vancouver in a cooler. “I thought it was going to melt, but it didn’t,” said Popma, who is two months into the 10-month Trades and Applied Technology program. After judging, 250 guests attending the event were offered samples of prize-winning desserts and chocolate delicacies created by three student finalists and three home cook finalists. Popma, whose home town is Duncan, attended the event with family members and accepted a whisk-topped trophy and prize package worth approximately $1,000. She says she is sure to use the Cuisinart stand mixer and other professional baking tools, and will find lots of ways to use the 23 kilograms of chocolate she took home as part of her winnings.

Activities mark diabetes day

I

vIU sTUdeNTs plan activities to raise money.

Vancouver Island University students are inviting the public to help them celebrate World Diabetes Day today (Nov. 14). World Diabetes Day marks the birthday of Dr. Frederick Banting, the Canadian co-discoverer of insulin, which saved millions of lives worldwide. Nov. 14 is celebrated as World Diabetes Day in more than 80 countries with landmarks around the word lit up in blue in support. Today has been proclaimed World Diabetes Day by Mayor John Ruttan for the City of Nanaimo. In Canada there are approximately nine million people with either diabetes or pre-diabetes. Of those about 90 per cent are Type 2 diabetic. Aboriginal people are three to five times more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than the rest of the Canadian population. In 2012 there were an estimated 17,000 diabetes related deaths in Canada

VOTE AND

for people of the ages 20-79. Diabetes is now considered the leading cause of death by disease in Canada. However, according to the Canadian Diabetes Association, Canada is No. 1 in diabetic research worldwide. Events will be held in VIU’s upper cafeteria, building 300, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be information, prize draws, and the Canadian Diabetes Association will be receiving donations for their Clothesline fundraiser project of used clothing, all cloth-based items, small household items, and small electronics.

Tourism grad will try to make difference in Kenya

I

VIU STUdeNT studies sustainability, habitat protection in Africa. By Shari BiShop BoweS

Kenya’s Campi ya Kanzi has hosted celebrity guests like Naomi Watts and Edward Norton, who have travelled there on vacation to enjoy beautiful views of Mount Kilimanjaro and a luxury-filled safari experience across vast acres of East African wild land. While the views and wildlife are equally exciting for VIU graduate Katie Schneider, her attraction to this luxury safari camp is more about the work it has been doing since 1996 to promote sustainable tourism and protect wildlife and habitat, while providing employment for the Maasai people in the area. Schneider, who graduated this year from VIU’s bachelor in tourism management program, left in early October for a one-year internship with Campi ya Kanzi and the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. Last April, Schneider accompanied VIU recreation and tourism

Weighill to continue an ongoing study of tourism in the region. Those first two experiences in Western Africa involved data collection at the Wechiau Hippo Sanctuary, which operates with a community conservation model similar to that followed by Kenya’s Maasai Wilderness

Conservation Trust. In both tourism locations, tourism revenue from guests, along with money paid in a daily conservation fee, are used to benefit the people living within the community. A major difference for Schneider will be the length of time she will have to spend working within the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, and learning about a new region of Africa that she expects will be quite different than she encountered in Ghana. The intern role will provide her the chance to witness the operation of a program that employs 90 per cent local people and a total of 200 people across the region. Schneider, who hopes to continue her education in VIU’s master of arts in sustainable leisure management program in a few years, says she hopes to learn as much as possible from building relationships and gaining new experience in her work with the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust and Campi ya Kanzi. “I do love research and I love learning new things, so the relationship building piece is really important.”

Inbrief community

Speaker talks food safety GE Free Nanaimo partnered with the Society for a GE Free B.C. and the Greenpeace Vancouver Local Group to bring Genetically Engineered Foods and Human Health: A Cross-Canada Speaker’s Tour to the Harbour City. On Saturday (Nov. 16) there will be an opportunity for the public to discuss concerns regarding genetically engineered foods. The talk will feature a presentation by Thierry Vrain, a retired soil biologist and genetic engineer who after a 30-year career with Agriculture Canada now speaks against genetically engineered technology. The goal of his presentation will be to address the topic of genetically engineered foods and human health from a scientific perspective. The event takes place at Vancouver Island University, building 356, room 109. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. Admission is by donation of $5 or more. For more information, please e-mail gefree nanaimobc@gmail.com.

Trucks light up for charity Members of the Mid Island Truck and Equipment Association are once again lighting up the night with their trucks. Members compete against each other for trophies and bragging rights as they show off their brightly coloured rigs and equipment to the public. This year’s event is set for Nov. 30, 7-9 p.m., in the parking lot at the Mid Island Co-op on Bowen Road. Members of the public are invited to vote on the people’s choice award. During the past seven years, the event raised thousands of dollars and truckloads of new toys, food and clothing that was then donated to various local community organizations. Refreshments are available in exchange for toy, food and cash donations. For more information, please contact Norm Jones at 250-756-5744.

BCHL TEAM has won five of last six.

Raiders lose in Regina

THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Clippers proved again they can skate with the best, defeating the Penticton Vees on Saturday in the best game of the season so far. The Clips won 3-2 in overtime, scoring twice in the third period to come back from a 2-0 deficit, force OT and win. “It was a true team victory,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach. “We had contributions from a lot of different people so I’m pretty proud of my team.” Nick Gushue was the hero, scoring two goals including the overtime winner and assisting on the other. On the winning goal, he stickhandled his way across the Vees zone and while fans implored him to shoot, he waited until he was in position in the slot and then fired the puck into the back of the net. The entire team mobbed him in celebration, he got to skate out as first star and then his teammates serenaded him with “Happy Birthday” in the locker room on what is sure to be a memorable

19th for Gushue. “It was awesome,” he said. He recalled that the Clippers won a home game on his birthday last year, too, but this one, against the powerhouse Vees, was definitely a bigger win. “I think we just stuck with it,” Gushue said. “The first period we were a little tight on our sticks but we just battled through it and as Mike said in the intermissions, we’ve just got to keep going and goals will come.” Vandekamp said

he actually outlined the whole comeback in the second intermission. “We said, when we do get a power play, we have to score on it and then we’ll get one late. We can give those guys a point, they’re not in our division,” the coach said. “It was really quite funny because we actually told the story in the intermission and it played out.” Gushue scored his first on a five-onthree power play early in the third period, then Austin Dick scored on a point shot with two

and a half minutes left in regulation. Gushue’s winner came halfway through the first OT frame. Jayson Argue was the winning goalie, making 22 saves. The night before, the Clips defeated the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 2-1, also at Frank Crane Arena. Mason Mitchell scored the gamewinning goal in that one seven minutes into the third period and Sheldon Rempal had Nanaimo’s other goal. Argue made 33 saves for the ‘W’ that night. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Clippers are playing some of their best hockey of the season and they’ll try to pack it on the bus with them. The Clips head off on a road trip this weekend, visiting the Trail Smoke Eaters on Friday (Nov. 15), the Penticton Vees on Saturday and then the Merritt Centennials on Sunday. Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach, said the team would try to get healthy this week and try to have positive practices to prepare. “We’re going to work real hard and give ourselves the best chance to keep this momentum going,” he said. Nanaimo has won five of its last six B.C. Hockey League games, a stretch that includes wins over both the Smoke Eaters and the Vees. “We’re really looking forward to a road trip,” Vandekamp said. “Road trips are fun for the team and we don’t have many in this Island Division so I think it will be a good, fun trip for the boys.”

The V.I. Raiders couldn’t keep up with the high-flying Regina Thunder in the Canadian Bowl. The Thunder won their first-ever Canadian Junior Football League championship, storming over the Raiders 55-26 on Saturday at Regina’s Mosaic Stadium. “They outplayed us,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. “They were the better team in all three phases of the game. As a team we didn’t play very good and we didn’t play good enough to win.” The home team used an efficient pass attack to create separation and was never really threatened, leading 7-3 after one quarter, 28-6 at halftime and 38-13 after three quarters. Blokker said Regina’s offensive line gave its quarterback Asher Hastings all the time he needed, and the Thunder receivers also showed their talent. None of those things surprised the Raiders – they knew going in that they were playing a good team, they were just unable to match their opponent on game day.

Redmen kick off playoffs versus Giants The Nanaimo Redmen have momentum on their side as they step onto the playoff gridiron. The city’s Vancouver Mainland Football League midget team won its last regular-season game 26-17 on Sunday against the firstplaced Langley Stampeders. “The game meant a lot to us,” said Sean Roden, the team’s coach. “Securing home field, getting third place instead of fifth was enormous for us, and the boys played like it.” Third place means the Redmen (7-2-1) get to host a playoff game this Sunday (Nov. 17) against the Chilliwack Giants (5-5).

“They’re bigger than us, but we think that we’re faster,” Roden said. “They have some very good players but they don’t have a game-breaking player.” The Redmen are ready for playoffs, as they seem to be rounding out their game with a more consistent offence to go with their bend-but-don’t-break defence, the coach said. “If we can stay healthy and eliminate our own mistakes, we will be competitive with any team in the league,” he said. GAME ON … The Redmen and Giants kick off at 1 p.m. Sunday at Pioneer Park. Admission is free.

Barsby Bulldogs focused for next playoff challenge The Barsby Bulldogs are looking to cross another opponent off of their playoff to-do list. The AA varsity ’Dawgs take to the football field this Saturday (Nov. 16) to face the Holy Cross Crusaders at Merle Logan Field in the provincial quarter-finals. The Bulldogs are coming off a dominant 55-7 win over the Pitt Meadows Marauders in last Saturday’s playoff game at Merle Logan Field. Even though the scoreboard says that the ’Dawgs won easily, they know this is the time of year when the games are toughest. “ I t ’s b a s i c a l l y another season…” said Brandon Parker, Barsby running back. “You start getting more focused, practices get more intense and basically you’ve got to focus more and go harder.” The Crusaders advanced to the quarterfinals on the strength of a 32-0 shutout win over Val-

leyview last weekend. S h a w n A r a b s k y, Bulldogs defensive back, said Holy Cross is a physical team, but said Barsby will try to do the same things that have worked against other opponents. “We just grind on people,” he said. “Our offence grinds, our defence punishes people so by the third and fourth quarters, the other team’s a lot more tired.” Against Pitt, Kyle Vollet led the ’Dawgs with two rushing touchdowns and also scored a major on an interception return. Parker, Cole Virtanen and Chance MacKayTopley also scored rushing TDs and Justin Cook caught a TD pass from Brody Taylor. Parker Bowles made 10 tackles and Blair Gould, Arabsky, Sheldon Robertson and Vollet had picks. GAME ON … This Saturday’s kickoff is 1 p.m. and admission is free. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

VIU basketball teams win big in home gym

I

MEN, WOMEN are both off to perfect 3-0 starts in Pacwest season. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEwS BULLETIN

The VIU Mariners made it a perfect home-opening weekend in their gym. Vancouver Island University’s men’s and women’s basketball teams swept their games Friday at Saturday, defeating the Columbia Bible College Bearcats and Kwantlen Eagles, respectively. The men’s M’s handled the Bearcats 89-59 and then soared past the Eagles 101-67. VIU’s women won 72-34 and 65-45. “Both games this weekend, I thought we started off really well, our starters set the tone,” said Matt Kuzminski, coach of the M’s men. He said in the Kwantlen game his team focused on limiting turnovers and was successful, with point guard Brandon Jones dishing 12 assists against just one turnover. “When he’s rolling and getting everybody the ball, we’re rolling,” said Seth Goodman, M’s forward. Goodman said VIU’s positive results on the weekend were a product of practice. “We go hard every day, so this is the fruit of our labour,” he said.

The first game Jones had 20 points, Jason Fortin had 12 points and 10 rebounds, Harrison Stupich had 12 points and Goodman had 11 points and 13 boards. The next day, Goodman had 22 points and 13 rebounds, Fortin also scored 22 and Jones added 17. “We’ve got some momentum now,” said Kuzminski. “We’ve won three games and we’ve played pretty well for this early in the season.” For VIU’s women, Jocelyn Jones had 18 points against CBC, Heather McCarthy added 15 points and Jenna Carver and Shayna Worthington scored 11 apiece. The next day it was McCarthy’s 20-point outing leading the way, while Jones scored 18 points and Worthington had 10 points and nine rebounds. “Good weekend with two league wins, got contributions from several different people,” said Bill McWhinnie, coach of the VIU women, in a press release. GAME ON … The Mariners hoops program continues its homestand with games Friday (Nov. 15) and Saturday against the Quest Kermodes and Capilano Blues, respectively. On Friday the VIU women tip off at 6 p.m. with the men’s game to follow at 8 p.m.; on Saturday the M’s women play at 1 p.m. followed by the men at 3 p.m. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

United to play first-placed foe Nanaimo United is getting ready for one of the biggest games of the regular season. The Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 men’s team (5-2) will take on first-placed Cowichan FC (7-1-1) this Saturday (Nov. 16) in Ladysmith. The teams played two months ago at Merle Logan Field, a match that the visitors won 1-0. Both sides step onto the pitch this weekend carrying fourgame winning streaks. The match is technically a home game for Cowichan, but the neutral site means United has a chance to hijack home-field advantage if it gets supporters out to the pitch. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

Raiders routed in final Scoreboard u From /B1

“It was almost like we had no clue or idea of how to play,” Matt Blokker said. “It wasn’t even so much what they did, we couldn’t even execute our own things.” The visiting Raiders twice fumbled the ball away, with the Thunder turning both those extra possessions into touchdowns. Blokker said the first turnover, in particular, might have been a turning point as the Raiders were at the Thunder five-yard line and threatening to go up 10-7. Asher Hastings was chosen Offensive Player of the Game, completing 23-of-36 passes for 377 yards and five touchdowns to tie a Canadian Bowl record. V.I. quarterback Jahmari Bennett scored all three of his team’s touchdowns, two on oneyard plunges and one from two yards out. Raiders kicker Ryan Jones was 2-for-2 on field-goal attempts, one from 40 yards and one from 24 yards. Jaeden Marwick got the start at quarterback for the Raiders and went 3-for-5 before suffering a groin injury that sidelined him the rest of the way. Bennett came in for one series, and then Jamie Ybarra played most of the second half, going 9-for-16 for 201 yards before Bennett finished up. Whitman Tomusiak led the Raiders with 83 receiving yards and Dylan Schrot had 78 yards. Andrew Deleon was the Raiders’

top rusher with 71 yards. Thunder receiver Mitch Thompson torched his former team for nine catches and 189 yards and two touchdowns and Brady Keller, Jacob Carr and Justin Banin also caught TD passes for the champs. Nick Brown scored a 48-yard rushing touchdown for Regina and finished with 203 rushing yards and Matt Frass also scored a rushing TD. The Thunder’s Brett Selinger was selected Defensive Player of the Game with eight tackles. Mason Dick had a fumble recovery and a sack and Chris Tunnicliffe had a fumble recovery and an interception. Landon Walter also intercepted a pass. Defensively for the Raiders, Jaxxen Wylie made an interception and Cole Bishop had a teamhigh five tackles. Blokker said the point spread in the Canadian Bowl doesn’t matter, and said nobody will even remember who was the runner-up team six months from now. He said it was disappointing that after playing so well in reaching the CJFL final, his team wasn’t able to play its best in the bowl game. “It’s very, very valuable experience, this run that we got on,” he said. “There’s a lot of learning lessons, including this loss, that a lot of these young guys can take.”

The Vancouver Island Symphony’s artistic director, Pierre Simard, couldn’t have pulled together a more complementary combination of music and guest artists for the London-Majesty concert on Saturday (Nov. 16) – Isaiah Bell, a Victoria tenor who loves to sing song cycles, and Andrew Clark, a French horn player who comes from London. The music, with words from the great poets Tennyson, Cotton, Blake, Jonson and Keats, features British composer Benjamin Britten who created Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, a songcycle on the subject of night. “Here Britten tells the story of different aspects of night: pastoral tranquility, covert excitement, dirty dealing, sleep – like looking at a statue from different angles,” Bell said. “What appeals to me is that a song cycle brings together the world of concert and drama. It’s not about set and props and costumes, it’s about telling a story, like chamber opera.” Bell’s passion for the arts began while attending high school in Fort St. John where he sang in musicals and wrote and directed plays. “I had no training. A choir teacher offered to give me voice lessons for free. I wouldn’t have come to classical music if it hadn’t been for her.” Then, in spite of not being able to read music or sing harmony, he auditioned for the classical program at the University of Victoria.

“It was a big learning curve,” said Bell. “Now I compose and do a lot of music. I love what I do, creating something that’s really beautiful.” Bell is no newcomer to Britten’s compositions. “I performed the Serenade in university, and I’m rediscovering it as I work through it. It is a special piece. And the music is incredible.” Clark, a resident of Ladysmith, and principal French horn with the symphony, has not only had a highly successful career as a soloist, playing with orchestras in the U.K. and Europe, he also manufactures French horns and trumpets. He met his first horn at school when he was 10. “I joined the youth orchestra, and at 12 got a taste of symphonic music, joined the National Youth Orchestra in 1979 then went to the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.” Clark was offered work with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and in 1990 he was appointed principal horn for the London Classical Players, then the Academy of Ancient Music, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. “My father is a very keen singer,” said Clark. “When I was a teenager playing the horn he wanted to sing with me and we performed some of the Serenade. He lives in the U.K. so it’s a pity he can’t see this performance.” In addition to Britten’s hauntingly beautiful Serenade, the symphony will be performing Haydn’s March for the Royal Society of Musicians and Symphony 104 (London). ◆ See ‘LEARN’ /B3

Singing workshop aims to lower stress, increase energy Research shows singing leads to less stress, increases energy, encourages self-expression, strengthens brain and language development and encourages us to breathe deeply. Sing with Shivon Robinsong Saturday (Nov. 16) in a one-day workshop Come Sing For Your Life at

St. Philip’s By the Sea from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Robinson has known for years that music is one of the quickest ways to create community and bring people together. For years she has promoted the simple act of singing and created a legacy based on her belief that

everyone can sing. Growing up as a non-prodigy in an intensely musical family, Shivon often felt she must be the “unmusical one.” But after leading her first song, Robinson knew she had finally found her instrument. Robinson has a degree in psy-

chology from the University of Manitoba. After teaching and counselling adults, she moved to Cortes Island, where she cofounded Hollyhock, Canada’s leading holistic learning center. For more information, please call 250-751-7873 or e-mail swende@shaw.ca. TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

Music students picked for band Five Wellington Secondary Jazz Academy students were chosen to participate in the 2013 British Columbia Music Educators Honour Jazz Band and Vocal Jazz Choir. Grade 12 jazz students Austin Perison on drums and Marcus Morosan on piano, Grade 10 student Kenton Dick on alto sax, Grade 11 vocal student Lauryn Collins, and Bradyn Malcolm on drums, were selected from among thousands of eligible jazz instrumental and vocal students from across B.C. Featuring the finest high school musicians in the province, the honour ensembles’ performances were the highlight of the annual British Columbia Music Educators’ Association Conference, held last month at the River Rock Casino in Richmond. Students were asked to send in an application and audition tape consisting of various musical techniques and songs. These tapes were then adjudicated and members for the various ensembles were picked. Chas Baker, a trombone player and educator from Michigan, directed the 16-member

No debate on comedian’s talent

I

STeveN PATTeRSoN from CBC’s The Debaters performs. By Beth hendry-yim The News BulleTiN

There’s no debate – Steven Patterson likes Canada’s current government. “I wake up every morning thanking them for providing such a wealth of material,” he said. Host of CBC’s The Debaters and two-time winner of the Canadian Comedy Awards, Best Male Stand-Up Comedian, 2011 and 2013, Patterson finishes a whirlwind tour of the West Coast at the Port Theatre Tuesday (Nov 19). Promising a combination of spice and edge, the Montrealborn, Irish-Canadian said he’d be fielding more than opposing viewpoints. “This is my chance to share everything I don’t get

to express on the Debaters. There’s no referee here, just me.” Though Patterson made his stand-up debut in his teens, it took a stint with pre-law and a detour into business as a copywriter to show him his true calling as Canada’s funniest man. “I wrote an ad for an amusement park that was too amusing,” he said and subsequently lost his job. Ten years later, in 2007, after touring the international and national stage, he landed the hosting gig on the Debaters. With more than half a million weekly listeners his witty commentary earned him several spots on the TV show Just for Laughs. Hosted by actor/comedian Steve Martin, Patterson’s performance prompted Martin to comment, “If I’d known he was going to be that good, I would have cancelled him.” Patterson’s talent for finding the absurd in everyday events

is what keeps his material fresh and new. “I read the local papers,” he said, plucking material from the headlines, making every show, in every city different and unique. Last year he hosted an event in Vancouver when the legalization of marijuana headlined every major paper. He couldn’t have asked for a better gift. “I do try to make a point,” he said. “I am proud to be a Canadian. I want to make people laugh, but I also want to make them think, just not too deep. ” Whether it’s political commentary, discussions of life as a newly wed or ponderings on life as a homeowner, Patterson said his bottom line message is simple and very Canadian, “Don’t be an arsehole.” The 90-minute-one-man show, “This Is Not Debatable!” begins at 7:30pm. All seats are $42. Please call 250-754-8550 or visit www.porttheatre.com.

p.m. in the Port Theatre’s Harmac Room. Tickets for the show are $33-$59; $20/students. Tickets are available by calling the Port Theatre ticket centre at 250-754-8550 or visiting www. porttheatre.com. For more information, please visit www. vancouverislandsymphony.com. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

The Bra Lady

Is Coming to Size You Up

At AVALON CINEMA Sundays 1, 4 & 7pm Mondays 7pm

Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in.

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Chapman is coming to NANAIMO ON WEDNESDAY NOV. 27TH to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly.

2013–2014 Showcase Season UNDER THE DIRECTION OF

Bruce Farquharson ACCOMPANIST

Nov. 17 - 18

Sharon Wishart

“Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,” Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.”

Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: • Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably? • Does your bust line “bounce” when you walk while wearing your “everyday” bra? • Do you overflow the cup of your bra? • Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? • Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to give you added support? • Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.

Yellowpoint show set to razzle and dazzle

I

ThRee dATeS scheduled for Port Theatre.

By Lindsay Chung Black Press

Mauve Friday is Coming. Black Friday will never be the same.

Mauve Friday is Coming. Black Friday will never be the same.

This December, the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular will dazzle and delight area families for the seventh year in a row. And this year, the show will be performed at the Port Theatre for the first time. The singing and dancing extravaganza includes a Queen tribute, a James Bond medley and a Sound of Music medley, Michael Bublé songs, a nostalgia tribute as well as many more classical hits and Christmas favourites. When it comes to choosing the musical features each year,

show creator Katy Bowen-Roberts, who grew up in Ladysmith, explains she has a program plan every year, and she has sets in which she tries to fit in songs of a similar idea. “Where last year I had a Tom Jones act and I tried to have a flashy first-act ending, this year, I’m doing Queen,” she said. Bowen-Roberts chooses the music, and her music arranger, James Mark, arranges it for the band and four singers. BowenRoberts, who produces the show as a family affair, with her husband and her parents, is looking forward to bringing the Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular to the Port Theatre. “We think it will give audience members a chance to see it in different forms; it will probably seem like a different show each time.” Bowen-Roberts has been working a lot with James on the music, and she said

together.” Bowen-Roberts says this year, she is also particularly excited about trying the show at the Port Theatre and about the costumes, which she chose during a trip to London, England this summer. “We have an exciting new cast, lots of new faces,” she added. “We have very talented dancers from Vancouver, and our singers are from across Canada. It’s always a pleasure to work with the band, who have been with us for seven years. We look forward to getting the show on the stage and hope groups and families get together again to celebrate live theatre.” The Yellowpoint Christmas Spectacular runs Dec. 6-21. Ten performances are slated on the calendar at the Cedar Community Hall and three performances are at the Port Theatre. The four matinée performances at the Cedar Community Hall are sold out. For tickets for the Cedar or Nanaimo shows, call 250-754-8550 or visit www.porttheatre.com.

Island writer offers free read A Vancouver Island writer, who has taken a theme reminiscent of The DaVinci Code into deeper and darker territory, has decided to give away his book. Former weekly columnist for a central Island newspaper, Nick Kelly recently published a Kindle e-thriller called Crypt Code, and in keeping with the dark and spooky time of year, he will offer for a free download for two days on Friday and Saturday (Nov. 15-16). “It has supernatural elements to it which are something on people’s minds this time of year,” Kelly said. In Crypt Code, an ultra-liberal French nun, Magdalene, is in serious trouble with the Vatican. In search of ammunition, she hires a North American archeologist to help her find a scroll from a lost book of the Bible viewed as catastrophic for the Vatican. Kelly decided to create and publish his book in the electronic format only. “It’s the wave of the future. The paperback may not exist in five years,” he said. Crypt Code is normally available on Amazon.com and will be available for free download onto e-readers or any device that supports Kindle.

Program helps reduce unwanted pets The B.C. SPCA is offering spay/neuter grants next year to help communities across British Columbia address pet overpopulation. Through several private donations designated to the B.C. SPCA for spay/neuter programs, the society is providing $87,500 in grants – $80,000 for cats and $7,500 for dogs and rabbits. Now in its second year,

the program allocates money to registered animal charities and non-profits, municipalities, veterinarians, B.C. SPCA branches, aboriginal governments and First Nations tribal councils. Successful applicants must meet specific criteria and be able to administer the grant. “Each year thousands of cats and kittens are dropped off at SPCA shel-

ters or simply abandoned by their guardians in public areas,” said Craig Daniell, chief executive officer of the B.C. SPCA. “By providing communities with spay/ neuter support we believe we can reduce the number of unwanted litters and help end the suffering of homeless cats.” The B.C. SPCA spends nearly $2 million a year on spay/neuter initia-

tives across the province, including the provision of free and low-cost spay/ neuter operations through SPCA clinics and by ensuring that every cat, dog and rabbit leaving the SPCA is sterilized prior to adoption. Deadline to apply for a B.C. SPCA grant is Feb. 1. For more information, please visit spca.bc.ca/ spayneutergrant to download the application guide.

Campaign car helps United Way fundraise

I

vehICle paId by Woodgrove Chrysler.

For the fourth year the United Way Central and Northern Vancouver Island team has a dedicated campaign car, insurance and gas to use during their fall fundraising campaign. The United Way aims to raise $750,000 for 33 programs in the central Island area. “During our busy campaign time our team covers a big area and clocks a lot of kilometers. We have over 130 different workplace locations. The campaign car, gas and insurance donated is an enormous help to keep costs down and focus on fundraising for programs that make a real impact and difference in our community,” said Signy Madden, executive director of the United Way. The campaign car will be used by the United Way office staff and volunteers until the end of January to get around during busy campaign time to make presentations to workplaces, bank deposits, attend meetings, visit partner agencies and to drop off campaign supplies. Woodgrove Chrysler donated the campaign car, a branded Dodge Caliber, and Vancouver Island Insurance Centres donated the insurance. MidIsland Co-op has donated $2,000 worth of gas to

keep the campaign team on the road. The decaling on the car was donated by Scribble Signs. “As a past campaign team member, I know how hard that team works and how many places they visit. Supporting United Way in their campaign by donating the car to support fundraising efforts is a practical way we are able to give back,” said Mike Heyes, Woodgrove Chrysler. For more information, please call 250729-7400 or e-mail info@uwcnvi.ca. United Way of Central Vancouver Island provides support for programs and groups from Nanaimo to the Comox Valley.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest luxury brands, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Zack Spencer

Visit the Cadillac CTS photo gallery at drivewayBC.ca

The CTS model is a lighter car, made of high tensile steel. It is stiffer, safer, handles better, and above all, is more efficient.

ZACK SPENCER

Question OF THE WEEK:

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class. It’s a full 173kg lighter than the benchmark BMW 5-Series it competes against, and 34kg lighter than the outgoing car. A lighter car, made of

The carryover engine is the direct injection one weak area is the back. It lacks the 3.6L V6 with 321hp, again more than same visual punch as the impressive the 300hp in the 535i.

You It’s not as wide and the back seat is a guessed it, more power than the 400hp bit shorter. Front seat passengers are found in the V8 550i. The Vsport is only treated to plenty of room and a view sold as a rear wheel drive car (RWD) onto the dash is impressive. The centre where all the others are available with console has a touch-screen system all wheel drive (AWD).

GET UP TO

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

Alexandra Straub

B.C. racecar driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is an accomplished racecar driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What followed, even she didn’t think would happen. She recently took home the championship title for the B Spec series in her Mazda2 for the 2013 race season. She grew up in a motorsports household but it wasn’t until she actually got behind the wheel at the driving course that her mindset changed. “I was just overwhelmed with all of the technical aspects that

The same thing goes for driving. Except there’s no poster in the cubicle for that! We need to be an active participant, not a wallflower. Anyone who has taken advanced driving courses will know exactly what Cherie is talking about. It’s not just about knowing how to shift gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand that this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love. Kind of like laundry or grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion. Myself included. Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively en-

Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the three-day racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer. And avoid going through insurance claims.

E-class in its own class Mercedes-Benz EClass 2010 to 2012 An all-new 2010-model year E-Class Coupe beat its sedan counterpart into Canadian Mercedes-Benz dealerships, in mid-2009. Style, safety and comfort are fundamental characteristics of an E-Class, which is considered to be one of the safest cars in the world. This generation E-Class came with ten air bags and a new Pre-Safe system that readies all on-board safety systems, when it detects that a collision may be about to happen. A car to savour on a long road trip, this E-Class came with a new “Intelligent” body structure that’s 30 per cent more rigid than its predecessor, incredibly comfortable seating and a newly developed suspension with shock absorbers that automatically adjust to a driving situation. An optional air suspension was also available with an electronic damping system. The E350 (coupe or sedan) is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 with 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The E550 (coupe or sedan) has a 5.5L V8 that can generate 382 hp and 391 lb-ft of torque. The sedan also comes in a high-performance AMG 63 edition with a 6.2-litre V8 that makes 518 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. All three engines are mated to a seven-speed automatic transmission and drive goes to the rear wheels of the coupe and to all four wheels of the sedan. The rear-drive 3.5L V6 gets best fuel economy at 11.9 L/100 kilometres in the city and 7.6 L/100km

At highway cruising speeds you can barely hear the E350 BlueTEC diesel engine, throttle response is fast (for a diesel) and pulling power (398 lb ft of torque from 1600 to 2400 rpm) is phenomenal. Engine upgrades followed in 2012. The E350 4MATIC got a direct-injection 3.5-litre V6. The E550 4MATIC got a 4.6-litre bi-turbo V8 and the E63 AMG got a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8. All models also receive a revised transmission and electric power steering. Even though owner costs tend to be higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ ‘Recommended list of cars to buy and the E350 BlueTEC was singled out for special praise. If style, comfort and safety top your auto wish list, and you’ve got the money, consider the remarkable Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Truck tires tread lightly in snow 2010

BY IAN HARWOOD The temperature is starting to drop, the leaves are clogging up the streets and snow is beginning to fall in parts in parts of B.C. Driving in the winter season brings challenges no matter which part of the province you call home. My remarks are aimed chiefly at truck owners but the message is common for all: driver and vehicles must be equally prepared. In winter, braking and stopping vehicles of all kinds is perhaps where most of us get into trouble. The tires play a critical role in stopping the vehicle, and so they need even more care and attention than in the other seasons. Most SUVs have a passenger car tire classification with M+S stamped on the sidewall, for Mud and Snow and are considered all- season tires. If it is not, your vehicle must be fitted with tires suitable for any type of climate, even the most severe ones.

In winter the pressure of the tire must also be controlled more frequently. This is because a reduction of the outside temperature causes a contraction of the air inside the tire, accelerating the normal and gradual pressure loss process by a value around 1-2 PSI for each 5° C decrease in temperature. Contrary to popular opinion, a lower inflation pressure than normal does not improve tire traction on snow. It makes them much more prone to damage. Always remember that in any season and with any temperature, insufficient pressure is always the main cause of tire damage. Use brakes carefully. Brake early. Brake correctly. It takes more time and distance to stop in icy conditions. Watch for slippery bridge decks, even when the rest of the pavement is in good condition. Bridge decks will ice up sooner than the pavement. Do not use the cruise control in winter conditions. Even roads that appear clear can have sudden slippery spots

Smart car tends to get last laugh People point and laugh at Jim Knowles when he drives his Smart Fortwo Electric Drive through downtown Campbell River. But he and his wife Catherine have the last laugh when they open up their hydro bill. “I think the last bill was just a few dollars more than the one we got before we bought the car in July so that’s inexpensive driving,” said Knowles. “I work out at the airport and so I travel about 10 kilometres each way every day. I never let the battery

Smart cars are cheap to fill up. go below 20 per cent but I still find I can sometimes go four days before I plug it in overnight.” In the summer, Knowles said he can easily get up to the 160km range on a single charge but knows the Vancouver Island winter will take that down to around 120 as the wipers and heater take their

and the short touch of your brakes to deactivate the cruise control feature can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Don’t get overconfident in your 4x4 vehicle. Remember that your fourwheel drive vehicle may help you get going quicker than other vehicles but it won’t help you stop any faster. Besides, many 4x4 vehicles are heavier than passenger vehicles and actually may take longer to stop. And don’t bank on your 4x4’s traction. Your 4x4 can lose traction as quickly as a twowheel drive vehicle. If your vehicle is equipped with antilock brakes, do not pump them in attempting to stop. The right way is to steer into the skid while applying the brake pedal evenly. Look farther ahead in traffic than you normally do. Actions by cars and trucks will alert you quicker to problems and give you a split second extra time to react safely. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca
