Obstinate Rob Ford a warning Longer municipal terms could spell trouble in B.C. Kyle Slavin News staff

Crack cocaine use, drunken stupors and alleged criminal associations. This is how Toronto is becoming known around the world, thanks to the ongoing saga that is Mayor Rob Ford. And as fruitless calls for his resignation get louder, a former University of Victoria political scientist says British Columbia should use this unfolding story as a political learning opportunity. Dennis Pilon, now an associate professor in the political science department at Toronto’s York University, warns that issues like this – although rare – should deter B.C.’s provincial government from increasing terms for municipal politicians from three years to four. Despite what Ford has admitted and ongoing criminal matters, Torontonians and councillors have no power to force Ford to step down. It would be the same situation in B.C. Under the Community Charter, municipally elected officials can only be disqualified from office as a result of unethical council-related conduct (ie. for a conflict of interest or an unauthorized used of municipal funds) or for missing four consecutive meetings.

Macduff (Justin Lavoie), left, locks swords with Macbeth (Nick Powell) during a rehearsal for Belmont secondary school’s futuristic retelling of the essential Shakespeare tragedy, running Nov. 26 and Nov. 27.

Post-apocalyptic Macbeth gets technical Kyle Wells News staff

Something wicked this way comes. Wicked good, that is. While the wordplay should perhaps be left to Shakespeare, it is true that the drama students of Belmont secondary school are

bringing a unique and highly professional version of Macbeth to the school stage. Belmont’s interpretation of the play sees Macbeth hungry for power in a post-apocalyptic future, where technology has been destroyed and its remnants are feared and misunderstood. “We’re so connected to technology, that is

such an important part of our lives,” director Melissa Young said. “I definitely think the play is relevant, regardless of where we set it. But I wanted it to be accessible to students.” PlEASE SEE: ‘The Scottish play’ brings luck, Page A13

Highlands wins web overhaul

Colwood kids step up to help youth in Philippines

T

Charla Huber News staff

Kids worried about kids in the Philippines sparked change in a Colwood classroom. When Deanna Brajcibh, a Grade 3/4 teacher at Wishart elementary, overheard students taking about the typhoon she asked her 22-kid class to take action. Now through Nov. 26 students will collect money for the Save the Children organization. “We chose this charity because it’s about children helping children,” Brajcibh said. The money collected with help struggling families and children get food, medicine and clean water among other supplies. “We don’t have a goal set because I don’t want the students to get disappointed if we don’t meet it,” said Brajcibh. “Anything they raise will help make a difference.” Donations can be dropped off in the office at Wishart elementary school, 3310 Wishart Rd., or online at savethechildren.ca. Brajcibh asked that anyone donating online on behalf of the school to email her at dbrajcibh@sd62.bc.ca so she can add it to the grand tally. charla@goldstream gazette.com

Jaimey Hamilton, middle, and her teachers Brian Hobson and Kris Johnson of Dunsmuir middle school raised $10,000 for the B.C. Childhood Cancer Parent’s Association.

Grade 9 in remission helps Dunsmuir donate $10,000 Charla Huber News staff

Jaimey Hamilton inspired her teachers and peers at Dunsmuir middle school to Give it Back. The Grade 9 student overcame two bouts of leukemia: one when she was five years old and the second when she was nine. She has been in remission since August 2012 after receiving a bone marrow transplant in Vancouver at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Through her years of doctors appointments, chemotherapy and other treatments, she spent a lot of time travelling to Vancouver. “It took up a lot of time for travelling and stuff,” Hamilton said. “It was kind of a pain.”

The school raised $10,000 through a fun fair carnival and silent auction at the school last May and the money will be donated to B.C. Childhood Cancer Parent’s Association today (Nov. 20) at a school assembly. The school hopes the money can be used to get children with cancer treatment on the Island so they don’t have to go to Vancouver as often. “The money was raised for children with pediatric cancer and it will go directly to help families on Vancouver Island,” said Brian Hobson, head of Dunsmuir’s soccer academy. “The whole school was involved in this and it was really a community effort.” charla@goldstreamgazette.com

hanks to a little luck on the part of Mayor Jane Mendum, the District of Highlands has a shiny new website, with improved access to information for residents. In 2012 Mendum, of her own volition, entered the Extreme Website Makeover competition with a company called CivicPlus, a developer of government websites. Highlands was Kyle Wells the lone CanaReporting dian community among the 12 picked of 161 finalists to win a free website redesign. “I said to staff ‘Do you want me to do this?’ and they said ‘Oh sure, go for it,’” Mendum said. “We’re so excited about it. … It was a great opportunity to upgrade capabilities.” The communities were selected based on an interview and how well it engaged with the community while campaigning for the new website. The district also receives training and two years worth of annual fees waived. Along with a more visually pleasing and easily navigable website, residents can sign up for alerts, which will email important city information automatically. Anyone can subscribe to items such as council agendas and community events. “It’s much timelier than mailing something out,” Mendum said. “It’s all about improving engagement.” Mendum said revamping the district’s website is something that likely would not have bee a priority for some time. “We were just in time to keep up with everyone, which is really great for a small municipality,” Mendum said. “There’s a great pride in what staff has delivered as far as the improvements in accessibility and transparency.” The previous website was developed about four years ago.

Eagle Creek Village gets ‘mini-Y’ Phase 1 targets 2015 finish Kyle Wells News staff

A satellite YMCA-YWCA will be part of the Eagle Creek Village development in View Royal. The announcement came Thursday as the shovels turned to commemorate the beginning of construction for the $100-million, mixed-use development across Watkiss Way from Victoria General Hospital. The project is the brainchild of Omicron, the company also behind the Coho development in View Royal. The satellite YMCA-YWCA will be housed in a 10,000 square foot, self-standing building within the development and will include a licensed childcare centre with 36 spaces for infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children, along with programs for teens and youth and fitness and wellness facilities for all. “A mini-Y,” said Jennie Edgecombe, CEO for Greater Victoria YMCA-YWCA. This facility and another set to be built at Langford’s Westhills are the result of a direct effort of the YMCA-YWCA to branch out into the West Shore, Edgecombe said. “We’ve seen there’s a need for Y services out here,” she said. “Particularly we do so much work with young families, it’s just been a perfect fit.” The new facility will help make up for the loss of around 40 daycare spaces over the last few

Greater Victoria YMCA-YWCA CEO Jennie Edgecombe and View Royal Mayor Graham Hill announce a new satellite ‘Y’ to be built at the Eagle Creek Village development, bringing 36 new daycare spaces to the area. years in View Royal, she said. It will also create employment and volunteer opportunities in the community. The beginning of construction marks the end of a long road for Omicron, who started tackling the project in 2006. For the past two years the developer has worked closely with the Town of View Royal and mayor and council to reach project approval. Concerns over traffic flow and building height were dealt with and the two parties came to an agreement both believe will be mutually beneficial. “They drove us hard, they got their pound of flesh, but that’s their job,” said Peter Laughlin, project manager. “With the team that we have here now and with the tenants that we have in place, it’s going to be an absolutely outstanding project.” Grocer Quality Foods, Cascadia Liqour, Forbes Pharmacy, Tim Horton’s and Starbucks are committed to opening locations at Eagle Creek. The development will also include residential units and professional and medical services. “At the end of the day the project is a better project for it. We’re really happy,” Laughlin said. The hope is to have the first phase of the development finished by 2015. “The (project) adds a new vitality to this corner of our town, and we are just delighted,” said Mayor Graham Hill. “View Royal is fussy. This council works hard, they turn every page … getting here has been quite a challenge. So here we are celebrating today. It’s come along well.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Ford should resign says CRD mayor Continued from Page A1

Under Sec. 110 of the Community Charter: “An elected official may be disqualified from office in a number of circumstances. Disqualification may include:   failing to take the required oath, an absence from council meetings for 60 days or missing 4 consecutive council meetings…, a conflict of interest…, an unauthorized use of money, or a disqualification as a result of not meeting qualifications to hold office.” If an elected official is charged with a criminal offence, the only relevant portion of the charter to apply for potential disqualification would be if they miss a series of council meetings. Once the potential for disqualification is met, the municipal government or 10 electors can then apply to the Supreme Court for an order to address the issue. That means if a mayor or councillor in B.C. admitted to unsavoury activities and refused to step down – and still did their job – residents would have to wait until the next municipal election to oust that elected official. “Government at a municipal level is very rigid. To be rigid

Flowers feed future dreams Country Grocer will once again help Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands children with life-threatening conditions with every ‘dream bouquet’, paper shirt or Island-grown Christmas tree sold between now and Dec. 14. Proceeds will go to the Help Fill a Dream Foundation. “For a child facing the uncertainty of a lifethreatening condition, hope and happiness help the healing process,” said Craig Smith, executive director for the foundation. “They are carried from a place of uncertainty and are shown that good things can still happen in their future.” editor@goldstream gazette.com

Obstinance and compliance

• In January 2003, then-premier Gordon Campbell was arrested in Hawaii for drunk driving. Campbell didn’t step down. He tearfully apologized to British Columbians, swore off alcohol and was subsequently re-elected twice. • In May 2008, Highlands councillor Ken Brotherston was charged with murder. As a result, he asked for an indefinite leave of absence from council. In 2010 he was found not guilty of the murder. • In April 2007, Port Coquitlam Mayor Scott Young was charged with assault and break and enter, among other charges, for an attack on a former girlfriend and her friend. Despite his council twice asking him to resign, Young stayed on as mayor. He ultimately pleaded guilty to assault and breaching an order, and received a conditional sentence, which included a curfew. He successfully appealed to have his curfew extended on Monday nights to allow him to attend council meetings. He did not earn a seat on council in 2008.

for four years, I think, is more dangerous,” Pilon said. “It’s fundamentally undemocratic to remove the public’s ability to comment on the politicians. … Extending the length of council terms looks really dumb now. The argument of why municipal terms should be shorter is precisely to give the public relief from a misbehaving councillor or mayor.” Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard says the exception shouldn’t make the rule. Regardless of term length, an elected official can act up in their first year or their last

year. He says any politicians who admits to the conduct that Ford has admitted to should resign. “We are elected to be lawmakers, not lawbreakers – period. He must step down if he has any respect for the position of trust he holds,” Leonard said. “It is not about individuals in the end – it is about the elected positions we are privileged to occupy temporarily. We must hold them with humility. … Once you bring disrepute to an elected office, you must resign.” In September, 60 per cent of

voting delegates at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference endorsed having local elections every four years like most other provinces in Canada. That resolution is to go to the provincial government, which has the authority to make that change. While citizens have no powers to remove a municipal politician, B.C. is the only province in Canada with recall legislation that gives residents an opportunity to dethrone a sitting MLA. All 24 attempts at recall since 1997 have failed. Provincial and federal governments can also fall, Pilon noted, forcing elections sooner than the four-year terms. Pilon calls the Ford situation “a boon for drawing out political lessons.” What lessons, though, remains to be seen. “It appears that politicians are able to push past some of the traditional third rails of politics – drugs, bad personal behaviour, marital infidelity. These were all things that would kill a career once upon a time. It appears politicians can now get away with it,” he said. “It’s not necessarily stopping them from getting re-elected.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

Looking good is an important factor in how we feel and the self confidence that we project. It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, so what we put in front of our eyes is very important window dressing. Apart from their critical role in correcting our vision, spectacles, in recent years, have acquired the status of a fashion accessory. The choices and styles in fashionable eye wear today reflect this trend. Frames are available to suit almost any taste and complement any look. If you prefer not to wear eye glasses, your optometrist can discuss the options available in contact lenses. Some of the many choices include rigid gas permeable lenses, soft contacts, tinted contacts, disposable contacts, bifocal contact and toric contact lenses that correct astigmatism. Some people prefer contact lenses to spectacles and find them more convenient for some activities. Refractive surgery is becoming a more mainstream alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Your optometrist can discuss with you the different techniques available to correct your specific refractive condition and recommend the best procedure for you. Most importantly, you should be wearing the corrective lenses that are most comfortable for you and provide you with optimum vision for all your needs.

OUR VIEW

Ford example is informative The behaviour of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has long since surpassed the realm of quirky and seen him sink to the depths to become a detriment to his community. That said, residents of Greater Victoria can feel lucky we’re not facing a similar situation among our elected civic politicians. While the examples have been rare around here of a rogue mayor or councillor embarrassing themselves publicly or shedding a negative light on their municipality, extending municipal terms to four years from three, as Union of B.C. Municipalities members endorsed this fall, is not a good idea. The B.C. Community Charter states that councillors can only be disqualified from office for not taking the required oath, missing meetings for 60 days or four consecutive meetings for reasons other than ill health or by leave of council, conflict of interest where influence or inside knowledge is used inappropriately, or the unauthorized use of money. The vast majority of councillors take seriously their oath of office and pecuniary responsibility to constituents. In the event individuals run into conflict, perceived or real, or exhibit questionable behaviour, councils are generally good at policing themselves. When further action clearly needs to be taken, the onus falls on the individual to do the right thing. As we’ve seen with Ford and local politicians, the results can be mixed. Former Highlands councillor Ken Brotherston stepped down from council while on trial for murder, for which he was acquitted in 2010, and did not run for re-election in 2011. In North Saanich in 2004, then-councillor Bill Bird admitted to a non-pecuniary conflict in a rezoning application made by a business partner. Bird stayed on, but was found later in court to have benefitted financially from the decision. He was ordered to step down until the next election but did not run again, either. With few mechanisms at our disposal to oust individuals who prompt serious consideration of termination or forced resignation, the best avenue is still the ballot box. What do you think?

Add the temporary foundation, skirting, well hookup, power, landscaping, driveway, and a mobile home that will lose its value if it has to be moved, and the property owner takes a loss of $150,000 or more. That’s why the removal rule is routinely ignored in rural B.C., Hanoski said. These second homes are the only rental stock there is, providing modest income for marginal farms, and should be allowed permanent foundations.

I asked Bill Bennett, the cabinet minister in charge of the latest agricultural land review, about a rumoured proposal to split the province into two zones with different rules. He declined to comment, but described the case of Fort Steele Farms, the East Kootenay community’s only market garden that almost closed because the next generation was initially refused permission for a second home. The two zones approach deserves serious consideration. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter

LETTERS No sense dumping biosolids on land Dumping sludge biosolids into the ocean is prohibited because it’s considered a toxic pollutant to fish. So why on earth could dumping it on land be any less polluting? Are we less important than fish? Logic and commonsense show this is crazy. The pollutants in ‘biosolids’ can’t be eliminated. When applied to land, they not only accumulate, but end up back in the ocean, polluting other waterways along the way. Studies showing effects of long term use are sparse because the bodies that have the funds don’t have the incentive to pay for those studies. This doesn’t translate into “scientific studies show it’s harmless.” That’s spin, PR, manipulation of facts. The CRD’s own website warns: “Persistent Organic Pollutants (one of the eight main pollutants identified) are

very slow to break down in the environment, and in many cases have an affinity for the fat tissues in animals. Therefore they are difficult to eliminate, and many are subject to bio-magnification. This means that they become more highly concentrated as they move up the food chain.” These are serious concerns. Marsha Henderson Saanich

Gasification a solution to sewage sludge Capital Regional District director Judy Brownoff states that gasification technology was looked at in 2009. So, what have the consultants hired by the CRD been doing since that time

with respect to updating this research? There are successful gasification operations with respect to sewage sludge in Florida, Japan and Germany, to name just a few. I have no confidence in this project when directors are satisfied with information relating to technology that is five years out of date. With the current ban on the land application of biosolids still firmly in place, it behooves the CRD to look to gasification as a possible answer to this problem, namely: What to do with the sewage sludge at the end of the day?

Mayor of Millstream Village issues important proclamation Christmas selection, savings and service cited as reasons for prestigious designation At a town hall meeting last night, the Mayor of Millstream V i l l a ge i s s ue d a proclamation officially granting “Heart of the Christmas Spirit” status to Langford ’s own Millstream Village. “This shopping centre has earned the designation based on its tradition of delivering excellence when it comes to selection, savings and helpful service,” the Mayor said.

Nearly $25,000 will help with operating costs at Jeneece Place Charla Huber News staff

The Canadian Police Canine Association and Saanich police donated just under $25,000 to Jeneece Place on Friday, the haven for parents with a child in Victoria General Hospital. “We all have kids and realize we could have all easily been in the position to use a facility like this,” said Saanich police Sgt. Glen MacKenzie, a father of two. “We’ve all watched Jeneece grow up and have witnessed her selflessness.” The contribution is the largest non-estate donation to Jeence Place since it opened its doors in January 2012. The money was raised during the national police canine championships hosted by Saanich Police in September. Funds came through corporate sponsorships, private donations, 50-50 draws and events. Saanich Const. Jon Zelinksi and police dog Zeke won the event two years running. Jeence Edroff accepted the cheque for $24,930.66 on behalf of the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island, which owns and operates Jeneece Place, and “It’s just absolutely incredible and it’s great they chose for the money to go towards Jeneece Place and to help out the families,” Edroff said. The money will go towards upkeep and operating the facility, which offers low-cost accomodations for outof-town families. charla@goldstream gazette.com

hat happens when you walk into a conversation between three intoxicated local performers, known for their entertaining bantering in real life? Find out at Intrepid Theatre’s Stories by the Glass on Nov. 28. The intimate show — only 50 tickets to be sold, is a fundraiser for the annual Victoria Spoken Word Festival, held each March. Artistic director Missie Peters came up with the idea after seeing the three well-known local performers, Ian Case, Dave Morris and David Radford, interact in real life numerous times. “Whenever these guy are together, they are always oneupping each other with their stories,” Peters said. “I then thought, ‘I wanna see these guys on stage.’” There is no script and no direction, other than having to be on stage and drinking an hour before the show starts. Peters wants the audience to feel like they are stepping into the middle of a conversation between three outgoing and comedic chums as they story-tell, laugh and feed off each other’s material. “Stories by the Glass isn’t about watching men get trashed on stage,” Peters said. “It’s about the wonderment that comes out of breaking bread together, stuff you share together over drinks. I’m really interested in the storytelling aspect of it.” After the theatre performance, attendees are invited to come along for the second half of the of the show, an afterparty at Veneto. “I would love to see everybody go over and keep that conversation going,” Peters added. Tickets are $25 and available at the Intrepid Theatre or ticketrocket.org. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. The next Spoken Word Festival is March 4-9, 2014 and the theme will be “Inside Story,” with workshops exploring storytelling.

Storytellers David Radford, left, Ian Case and Dave Morris will welcome an intimate audience in for an evening of booze and banter during Stories by the Glass, a fundraiser for the Victoria Spoken Word Festival, Nov. 28.

it’s hammerin’ time

The colourful domain known as the Marvel Universe is threatened with a singularly crepuscular gloom in Thor: The Dark World. In one of those convoluted plots peculiar to fantasy movies, the “nine realms” (including Earth and Asgard) are due for their once-every-5,000-years convergence. This makes them vulnerable to the dark energy of The Aether, which can destroy the universe by turning it into utter darkness. And, wouldn’t you know, Malekith (Christopher Eccleston), the villain capable of engineering this feat, has just been awakened ... and he’s in a pissy mood. Luckily for us, hammer-hurling Thor (Chris hemsworth) is on the case. Once again he is united with his Earthly ladylove, Jane (Natalie Portman), who – wouldn’t you know it? – just happens to be an astrophysicist with the skills and gear necessary to help gum up the diabolical plans of Malekith and his army of Dark Elves. So Thor defies Odin (Anthony hopkins) and risks banishment to pursue a course that may be the only hope to save our universe. (Which, it must be said, has been needing a lot of saving ever since all these Marvel-ous movies have been clogging up the cineplex.) Although Dark initially staggers from one battle to the next with a lack of imagination, it gradually builds up some of the comedic energy and charm that made the original movie tolerable fun. The returning cast add considerably to the entertainment levels. The CGI work is decent enough to render plausible all sorts of strange battles and alternate worlds. And fans in the audience cheered lustily at the end when a sequel became clearly inevitable. Rating: ★★1/2 (Thor: The Dark World continues at the Odeon, SilverCity, Empire Uni 4, & Westshore).

This theme of technology’s influence on our lives runs throughout the play. Even the play’s famous witches live in a shack made of remnants of cell phones and electronics, which they also drop into their spell cauldron, along with the usual eye of newt, toe of frog etc. Macbeth is being put on by the Belmont Senior Acting Company, a group of 31 dedicated drama students who had to audition to join the yearlong course. “It’s focused on performance and it’s aimed at students who are passionate about performing arts or want to pursue this as a career,” teacher Melissa Young said. “These kids, they’re working really hard.” In the lead role is Nick Powell, a Grade 12 student, a longtime drama student taking on Belmont’s advanced acting program for the first time. “Macbeth is the kind of man who would do anything to get the certain thing that he wants,” Powell said. “He’s incredibly fun to play. … I’m not really an angry kind of person, so it’s very interesting and challenging for me to branch out that way.” In his first year in any drama program, Justin Lavoie, Grade 11, is playing the part of Macduff, the Thane of Fife, paradoxically both the antagonist and the hero of the play. “It’s a totally new experience,” Lavoie said. “Just getting into the role of a character and really getting to play it out, it’s an amazing feeling.” Both said the Shakespearian English was hard to wrap their tongues around at first, but with practice came a sense of the rhythm and eventual mastery. “Especially with so many lines to memorize,” Powell said. “But when you’re on stage and you have memorized the lines and you’ve gotten it all right, it really is a powerful feeling.” Young said the young thespians are

doing well and the play is coming together nicely. “(It’s) a fast-paced thrill ride, I have to say,” Young said. “Especially when we get into Act 2 and we have a series of fight scenes, it just moves.” As for the old theatrical superstition that you should not speak the name of “the Scottish play” while putting on a production, Young believes she found a

Rams into football’s final four Rams one win away from playing for third straight B.C. championship Travis Paterson News staff

Like all eight teams that faced the Mount Douglas football squad this season, the St. Thomas More Knights couldn’t stop the Rams.. The Rams won the quarterfinal playoff match over the Knights 56-24 at Westhills Stadium on Friday. It puts Mount Doug into the semifinals against the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers at UBC on Saturday with a 5 p.m. kickoff. The Knights’ 24 points was the most scored on the Rams this season. Of course, giving up 24 points is a non-issue when you routinely crack 50 points. Still, the Panthers will be a challenge, but are the underdog against the Rams, who are in a hunt for their third straight AAA B.C. championship, said Rams coach Mark Townsend.

In particular, the Rams will need to contain the Panthers star running back Jamel Lyles, who has 21 of the team’s 27 rushing touchdowns. “Lyles is a special player who has shown he can dominate the game. He runs the football with great speed and power, has excellent hands catching the ball too,” Townsend said. “We will not be able to completely contain Jamel but our focus will be to limit his big plays.” Perhaps Lyles does dominate the game, or perhaps it becomes a game of anything you can do, I can do better, when it comes to Rams star Marcus Davis. Against the Knights, Davis rushed for 217 yards and four touchdowns, one which was 65 yards, and caught a 65-yard TD pass. Seye Farinu rushed for 145 yards and two TD’s of his own. “The Panthers are an attack-

The Oak Bay Barbers are the latest winners in the ongoing season series against the Belmont Bulldogs. The host Barbers bested the Bulldogs in straight sets on Saturday night to win the Island senior boys AAA volleyball championship final 26-24, 26-24, 25-22. It was the third meeting between the teams in recent weeks as the Barbers beat the Bulldogs at the Lower Island championships and the Bulldogs won the Judy Bourne city crossover championships. “We have to play at a near

The Reynolds Roadrunners defeated Dover Bay in four sets for third place. Those two teams join Oak Bay and Belmont at the AAA provincial championships in Kelowna, Nov. 27 to 30. The Barbers and Bulldogs are in the same power pool for provincials. The Belmont Bulldogs senior women finished second as hosts of the AAAA Islands and join Oak Bay in a six-team wild card tournament for the final two berths at provincials.

Wrestler sees light, turns heel Pro wrestling gets new life at Velox Travis Paterson News staff

Lak Siddartha is making new enemies despite following the light. The pro wrestler still carries the past of his underworld persona. But when he enters the ring inside Velox Rugby Club on Friday (Nov. 22), he will no longer be the once-proud representative of Saanich. “Siddartha has followed a wayward path under the leadership of rogue manager Father Juan. It will be hard for fans to cheer for him,” said B.J. Laredo, current holder of the Vancouver Island Pro Wrestling championship belt. Siddartha won a VIPW battle royale in Port Alberni in Septem-

lines in Duncan anyway. It’s a bad-blood plot twist that’s brought the fledgling VIPW storyline to life. “With Father Juan ringside, I might as well be fighting two guys, you know he’s going to do something to help Lak,” Laredo said. Laredo won the Island belt from the Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling in 2012 and appropriated it to the VIPW, which he helped launch in September. VIPW hopes to run monthly shows on the Island in 2014 with six dates in Victoria. On the card Friday are Riea Von Slasher vs. KC Spinelli, Cremator vs. Eddy Osborne and Victoria’s Pete Powers vs. Tony Baroni. Also appearing is Victoria’s John Atlas.
