Alleged dog beater pleads not guilty

To all charges: Date for high-profile trial still to be determined

uncan’s Brandon Harrison pleaded not guilty this morning to charges in connection with the April 21 beating incident of a Boston terrier/French bulldog cross. A lawyer spoke on behalf of Harrison, 26, in Duncan provincial court confirming to Crown the accused will be fighting all charges he’s facing. These include two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm; two counts of criminal harassment; one count of causing an animal to continue to be in distress; and one count of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal. A trial date has not yet been determined, but Harrison’s lawyer Seth A. Cooper of Infinity Law estimated it could span 2 1/2 days. Harrison previously pleaded not guilty in provincial court in May to three separate charges in connection with the beating. But following that plea, an extra charge was stacked against Harrison. Two more witnesses have came forward, leading to this week’s second not-guilty plea. Chris and Leigh Davies were witnesses to the April 21 incident on Cowichan Lake Road involving the pooch they call Terry. “We are both very surprised at Brandon Scott Harrison’s not-guilty plea entered today,” the Davies wrote in a statement following the decision. “However, we are now looking forward to the trial and more importantly, justice for little Terry, the poor abused Boston terrier mix. We sincerely hope that our day in court will bring about a better life for little Terry.” According to the Davies, on April 21 a man pinned the dog by the neck to the road and punched him three times in the head, before throwing the dog into the ditch. The Davies addressed the man and heated words were exchanged, including what Chris said was a nasty threat by the man to his wife when she said she was going to call 9-11. “He said, ‘I’ll f---ing kill you if you dial 9-11,” Davies recalled in a previous article. In the meantime, nearly 24,000 folks signed a petition, ‘Justice for Terry’ supporting maximum sentencing against Harrison. On behalf of petition creator and animal cruelty legislation advocate Charlene Myers, Crofton’s Brandon Meyer handed the signatures to Crown Counsel Dec. 2.

Antoniuk, 49, also received three years probation, with strict conditions. Those strings include no use of alcohol or drugs, no possession of weapons, and no contact with his father Marvin Antoniuk Sr., nor brother Myles. But court heard how Antoniuk’s actions had become intimately linked to those of his father — and Antoniuk’s alcoholism. “Alcohol has become a longstanding issue for Mr. Antoniuk. He also clearly suffered trauma as a child,” Wishart later said of the accused’s lifelong abuse by his father. Still, she said her ruling serves to leash Antoniuk’s violence, ensure public safety, and boost his chances of healing and finally staying straight. Jan. 27 saw the near-tragic end to an

with an arrow. “I feel terrible and ashamed for what I’ve done,” he said Friday, dabbing away tears to address Duncan court Judge Susan Wishart. Antoniuk’s guilty plea to aggravated assault saw the Cowichan-raised offender receive three years in prison, less the 10 1/2 months he has spent in custody since the Jan. 27 bow shooting at his family’s home on Maple Bay Road.

emotionally charged night that started with watching TV. It swelled into a violent argument. Myles heard yelling, entered the room, saw his wounded dad, then confronted his brother. He gave Antoniuk a wicked beating after the compound-bow arrow pierced their father’s heart. Incredibly, court heard, their dad pulled the projectile from his chest, then tried to stop the fight between his boys as police and paramedics arrived. Antoniuk Sr. spent about nine days in hospital and has recovered, court heard during four hours of arguments by Crown counsel Brad Tomlin, and Antoniuk’s lawyer Jeffrey Arndt. more on page 4 bchonda.com

Elliott sentencing pushed back until the spring

UP FRONT

A pre-trial conference before sentencing of the confessed killer of local women Karrie Ann Stone and Tyeshia Jones will take place Feb. 4, 2014 in Victoria. The new date on second-degree murder charges facing Cowichan’s William Gordon Robert Elliott was determined Monday. Elliott appeared via

video for proceedings in Victoria. A possible sentencing date will now be April 14, 2014 in Duncan but could depend on a variety of circumstances, conceded an official with the Supreme Court of B.C.’s scheduling division. In July, Crown said it would seek a maximum sentence in the murders of Jones and Stone after

the court finally heard details of the high-profile 2010 and 2011 killings of the two Duncan women. Elliott pleaded guilty July 19 to the seconddegree murders. Duncan Judge Keith Bracken had been expected to rule Dec. 16 on Elliott’s parole-eligibility date of anywhere between 10 and 25 years.

rumming, singing, and signs of courage against growing on-reserve crime — and fear of possible gang activity — were seen and heard during Saturday’s Safety March by Cowichan Tribes and its supporters. Tzinquaw dancers thumped drums while elders, youths and other locals walked down Boys Road to Statlou Road, then along Thiek Road to the highway. The message from 100 or so folks was clear: we’re not afraid; we’re standing strong for safe reserve lands. “The main thing is safety,” said Chelsea George. “We just want to be heard.” Chantel George agreed.

“The neighbourhood’s not very safe, and we want that to change.” Changes could come from Tribes’ members living on reserve, as newly elected Chief Chip Seymour and council address a raft of issues confronting their people. “It’s part of the legacy of our need to continue with reconciliation,” Maureen Tommy, Tribes’ general manager, said of issues resonating from the legacy of the residential-school abuse suffered by some of her people. “It’s part of all nations coming together.” She signalled Tribes has been tackling many issues, seemingly symbolized during the January 2011 murder of Tribes’ teen Tyeshia Jones. “After we had the loss of our beloved one (Jones), we were experiencing gang violence at the same time.”

So the march was designed to reach reserve areas, identified by former Koksilah school students as those where they didn’t feel safe, Tommy explained. That message was heard by Safe Youth Cowichan, and Tribes during Saturday’s march and dialogue at the Friendship Centre. Organizer Angela Underwood explained the idea is gathering community as one voice against violence, bullying and promotion of understanding. Tribes member Norm Thorne indicated some misguided youths believe gangs are cool; Saturday’s march would show them different. “They’re not necessarily gangsters, but wannabees. “That’s a problem because they should want to be something else,” he said.

owichan Tribes won’t head to a byelection after all to find a council replacement for newly elected Chief Chip Seymour. “We’re staying at 11 councillors,” firsttime councillor Garrett Elliott said of the previously planned byelection after Seymour was voted onto Tribes’ 12-member council Dec. 5 — and to the chief’s chair. The chief can’t hold both posts. “We’re still governed by the Indian Act, and Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada — under them we’re not to have a byelection unless we don’t Debra Toporowski: reach a (voting) quorum,” many hands Elliott said. Tribes’ council must “really push to come up with a (workable) governance model,” he noted. “Cowichan Tribes needs an election code that’s unique and distinct to Cowichan people, then submit it to the feds.” Like Seymour, who named communication with his people as job-one, Elliott felt the same as he took part in Saturday’s Safety Walk across the reserve. “We’re elected by the people, for the people. “There’s always potential for breakdown without communication.” That’s why fellow newly elected councillor, Debra Toporowksi, wants a safe community as the first step toward helping Cowichan’s Aboriginal folks face a slew of issues spanning suicide and mouldy housing, to unemployment. “One person can’t fix an issue by themselves, but many hands help build a healthy community.” Tribes’ 12 councillors were elected from among 62 candidates for a two-year term. They also include Charlie Arvid Charlie, Andrew Canute, Albie Charlie, Stephanie Charlie, Cindy Daniels, Diane Daniels, Matthew Louie, Chuck Seymour, and Dora Wilson.

Antoniuk can’t remember the night in question vengeance on his father, and to protect society. But Arndt painted a picture of his client as a model for other prisoners in Vancouver Island Correctional Institute. But his painful childhood pushed the aspiring athlete to become a loner, boozer and doper — amid attempts at counseling, Alcoholics Anonymous, and rehab. He was also in cultural limbo between his white father’s world, and his Aboriginal mother’s spiritual world. “He chose alcohol over relationships. He was a drunk and a druggie,” he said, noting liquor could cause Antoniuk’s “dissociated moments.” Maybe that’s why Antoniuk couldn’t remember if he drank one mickey or two, the night he nearly killed his dad. “It makes me sick to my stomach to hear what I did that night,” Antoniuk told the court. Still, his crime was impulsive, not premeditated, Arndt

from page one

Both regretted a Gladue report into Antoniuk’s Native background and his behaviour wasn’t available for the court. Psychiatric and risk assessments were done. The two lawyers cited cases — laced with violence, weapons, and substance abuse — that spelled sentences between 16 months and six years for similar aggravatedassault charges. “Obviously, no two cases are the same,” Wishart said later. Tomlin explained some of the abuse Antoniuk, a bowman, suffered at the hands of his father — perhaps the reason that arrow was fired from about 10 feet away. Antoniuk even tried to reload his bow, Crown said. “There’s no reason to believe he wasn’t aiming for the centre of the heart. It was done with indifference as to whether his father lived or died.” Tomlin recommended a fiveyear prison sentence to stop Antoniuk from seeking further

explained. Antoniuk’s sister, Myra, also told court her brother has had a lifelong struggle primarily with booze, likely due to their father’s vicious physical abuse against Antoniuk, her other brothers, and their mother during their “chaotic” home life. And when Antoniuk, a Cowichan High grad, tried to stop his father from beating their mother — a residential-school victim — he was thumped, Myra explained. Wishart also heard the Antoniuk family was basically disowned by their mom’s Tlowitsis First Nations family — isolating them in “a no-man’s land” from spiritual help that may have been offered to the troubled family. “We weren’t connected to my mom’s family because of my father.” Myra also seemed to support Tomlin’s statement that liquor could cause a “Jekyll and Hyde” effect on Antoniuk. “Suddenly, it was like a switch

would go off,” she said of her brother who would “check out” during intermittent violent acts. “Alcohol and drugs are a way of masking the pain,” she said. “He’s suffering the trauma from growing up.” That trauma pushed Antoniuk to attempt suicide after their mother died, Arndt noted of his client who also turned to cocaine and crack cocaine. Myra compared her brother’s hurt to a deep emotional gash. “It’s like putting Polysporin on the top layer, but underneath it’s infected. There’s likely more Marvin doesn’t remember about our childhood.” She hoped carpentry-trained Antoniuk will help rebuild her mother’s village near Campbell River, once he’s out of jail. “For a family to heal, it has to start somewhere.” It started with Antoniuk’s apology to his father. “I do care about my dad,” he said. “I hope he can find peace in his life.”

Door-to-door mail delivery on its way out

Mailing it in: Canada Post to trim labour force, deficit by 2018 by addressing new consumer habits and facing new-age competition Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

G

et set to walk down the block for your letters — costing more to mail — and small parcels. Superboxes will replace thousands of posties handling home delivery of personal mail in the next five years, a Canada Post official said. The looming changes follow national citizen-feedback sessions that revealed shifting consumer habits such as on-line shopping, explained spokeswoman Anick Losier. “People want to track their parcels, and still know it’s put in a secure place,” she told the News Leader Pictorial from Ottawa. “People told us in community meetings they don’t want to pay for Canada Post’s deficit.” A Conference Board of Canada report last spring found Canada Post would face annual losses of $1 billion by 2020 without major reforms. The reduced workforce, and other changes, are expected to save Canada Post up to $900 million per year, while competing with other mail methods such as couriers, email — even experimental drones. Some 8,000 letter carriers, including an unknown number in Cowichan, will be phased out

Peter W. Rusland

Laura Anderson checks her postal box near Maple Bay, an activity that will become standard throughout the valley as Canada Post phases out its letter carriers. by attrition, such as retirement, or be shifted to other duties, she explained. “Job security won’t be impacted. That’s why it’s important to start this action now and build a strong, viable Canada Post for the future.” That future will see the Crown corporation use a five-point restructuring scheme. That plan spans moving Canada’s remaining third of homes and businesses to mailbox use, from door-to-door delivery; higher prices for stamps (rising to $1 in March from the current 63); more in-store post-office franchises; and fine-tuning of sorting and deliveryroute issues. “They’ll still deliver to community mail boxes, centralized delivery systems like apartment boxes, group boxes, and general delivery.” The move to mailboxes won’t be that big, Losier signalled, since

most new suburbs have the redmetal community boxes now. Some folks say those mailboxes can be vandalized. Postal crime is a problem constantly considered by Losier’s bosses. “Crime is a social problem everywhere; we’re not immune to that. We’re testing new equipment such as anti-pry boxes.” Other Canadians suggested delivering mail say, every other day. But that might not work so well for business owners. “Some people really depend on the mail so we have to keep it daily,” she said. “We want to be a viable economic engine for them.” It’s all aimed at lowering Canada Post’s debt load. “We had a $129-million loss in the last quarter,” Losier said of July to September. “This is the beginning of a new postal system that fits people’s busy lives.”

Warplane wreckage found in wilderness Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Details pending: Investigation underway after local logging crews discovered 70-year-old military plane Ross Armour

News Leader Pictorial

A

Second World War military plane has been found in a mountain area southwest of Lake

Cowichan. The plane, more than 70 yearsold, was found by local loggers working out of the Mesachie Lake area for forestry company Teal-Jones last week.

Capt. Matt Zalot, public affairs officer with the National Defence and Canadian Armed Forces in Ottawa, confirmed the plane to be an Avro Anson that was used and crashed during the Second World War. “We’re still conducting the investigation to see if anything is found such as human remains and that will be a major determination in what happens next,” said Zalot who noted the discovery is exciting nonetheless. Matt Carter, from the TealJones Group, said the plane was found “in the vicinity of Port Renfrew.” Zalot explained that if human remains are found, he and his colleagues would have to begin necessary procedures to find close

Ralliers deserve your attention and support

Neighbourhood fears: These are legitimate fears in our backyard that we need to address

W

hen you earn your living writing about your community it is pretty hard not to find yourself inside one of your stories from time to time. But Saturday’s rally focused on youth violence in a Cowichan Tribes reserve neighbourhood south of the river put a whole new emphasis on that reality: the neighbourhood in question is our neighbourhood. The News Leader Pictorial office fronts the Island Highway on its west just south of the Silver Bridge. The We can make side, homes being terrorized are right across the highway — a subdivision east of a difference highway squeezed between the Boys for our neigh- the and Allenby traffic lights. Residents are tired of wannabe gangbours sters ruling the roost and they want to reclaim the personal security one should find in their homes. Now we wouldn’t say we feel unsafe coming and going from work; We don’t, even though circumstances perhaps indicate we should. In addition to the youth gang episodes, there have been a few violent shooting deaths in a nearby trailer park and a number of traffic tragedies at the Boys Road traffic lights. But the point of this editorial is not to fear-monger, or be disparaging about our neighbourhood — quite the opposite. The intent is to praise the people who organized Saturday’s rally and urge the police, local government and Cowichan Tribes officials and the rest of the neighbourhood to step up and support them. Cowichan has the people and resources to make sure residents in every neighbourhood feel safe. And because most of us already do feel secure, it is sometimes difficult to accept the reality that others don’t. Even when it is right in our own backyard.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like

There are probably a few Grinches out there who are sick to death of reading and hearing about all the Christmas good deeds out there. We certainly are not among them. Whether it is Christmas baking on a massive scale as practised by Stacy Middlemiss and her elves, or the personal comfort being provided the homeless through Operation: Underpants, creative locals are making a difference.

Operation: Underpants is collecting until Friday.

Valley agriculture sector needs support to thrive Robert Douglas

News Leader Pictorial

A

s many of our local farmers near retirement, the question is who will take over their farms? Farmers are generally much older than the rest of the population, with the average age across Canada being 60 years. And the majority of them don’t have successors in place. Some of these farmers will pass the business on through the family, but for others the situation is far more complex, as their children may have little interest in following in their parents’ footsteps. At the same time, a growing number of young people are interested in getting into the business, but don’t have the money to acquire agricultural land or the expertise to run a farm. The price of farmland has skyrocketed across Canada in recent years, increasing an

average of 12% a year since 2008. The issue of farm business succession should be a major concern not only to farmers but to all of us concerned about local food security. We only produce 20% of our local food supply in the Cowichan region, importing much of the other 80% from industrial farms in California, Mexico and China. If we hope to develop a more resilient food system that can better withstand the supply disruptions caused by climate change, then we will need to get more people farming. In recent years we have seen progress, although it has been much slower than many of us would like. The Cowichan Valley Regional District has identified farmer succession planning as a critical issue in the Area Agricultural Plan, a document released in 2009 that outlines a wide range of actions to increase local food security. It proposes to help young people interested

The folks given the task of keeping our wintry roads safe say nothing has changed in the makeup of our road grit. Our eyes and windshields tell a different story. We need our roads properly sanded for maximum safety. But there has to be some attention paid to the potential damage sanding can cause to the very vehicles it is designed to protect.

COWICHAN LEADERS

in farming by creating new programs that would develop and promote farm co-operatives, leasing of farmland, information exchange and mentoring. Our largest municipality in the region has taken steps in the right direction as well. North Cowichan recently adopted a new Climate Action and Energy Plan that commits to a number of initiatives to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions over the next decade. These include building an agricultural development centre on municipally owned land that would act as an incubator farm and help young people get into the business, offering them access to training, land, capital and markets, knowledge of equipment operation and maintenance. Efforts are already underway to implement both of these of these planning documents, but much work remains if we are to solve

this growing problem. Let’s hope 2014 sees major progress in this area, where new training programs are put in place to assist young farmers, municipal land is made available to those interested getting into the business, and shovels hit the dirt to build a new incubator farm. Because our farmers aren’t getting any younger, and far too many young people continue to face bleak employment prospects. Rob Douglas is Constituency President of the Cowichan Valley NDP.

David Pompeo was just doing his job

Time has come to limit the number of kids

Dear editor Your columnist Aaron Bichard is absolutely right that there is a perverse amount of food being wasted between agriculture, transportation, retail and in our own homes. Even if we get everyone licking their plates though, population growth will cancel any efficiencies that we can wring from the system. No one wants to state it, but to me it’s become obvious that for human survival, in terms of food availability and the environment as a whole, the entire world, not just China (which has watered theirs down), needs a one- (or two)-child policy. Warren Chapman

am very glad Const. David Pompeo did not lose his job, and that he did what he was trained to do. My sister worked many years as a jail guard in a men’s prison and as an Auxiliary RCMP. She also was an ambulance attendant, so she was a person that cared Duncan deeply for people and cared for them. She was also on the other side of the situation, when those people were threatening her.

B

y the way, did you hear: • Maeve Maguire wants to remind readers this week is their last chance for clean underwear. Or at least to donate some to Operation: Underpants, the local campaign to gather brand-new underwear for Cowichan’s street people. “Last year, Operation: Underpants gathered more than 500 pairs, most of which was given to Fatima da Silva’s Boxing Day dinner guests at Bistro 161,” she writes. “Outreach worker Chuck McCandless handed out the rest of the new skivvies as the need arose throughout the year. Buy new undies and drop them off in Duncan at Cycle Therapy, Cowichan Green Community, Maple Bay Rowing Club, and Bound to be Different in Chemainus before noon on Dec. 20. • Meet the new Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce board of directors, picked Nov. 26 at Vancouver Island University.

Internet a safe place for those who play safe Personal protection: Expert schools local parents in the art of ensuring online safety for their kids Malcolm Chalmers

News Leader Pictorial

G

ood news parents, your kids are doing “Super cool things on line.” That was one message given by Darren Laur of Personal Protection Systems when he spoke about internet and social media privacy to a dozen parents at Lake Cowichan School, Dec. 10. “Although the majority of kids are doing good things there is still a small percentage of people doing bad things and those predators are the people we need to protect our children from.” Laur feels kids are “Digital Citizens” and adults “Digital Immigrants” who have to be taught about the internet our kids are using. In the two-hour session for parents, he taught participants some of the internet language their kids use online, some of the social media sites they are on and some of the pitfalls to look out for. “The biggest threat to our kids is not sexual exploitation online like a lot of people think it is,” he said. “It is about their privacy and how their privacy is under attack, and what they are

posting on their social networks today can come back on them later on.” In the future, information or photos they share may be used against them when they apply for college, scholarships, and even for a job. Identity theft is on the rise. Children as young as seven are having their personal information harvested. Names, addresses and birth dates are used to steal more than just credit “Parents have the right to parent. If your child still believes in the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and leprechauns, then your child has no right to privacy online. We, as parents, need to be supervising what they are doing.” Laur suggested monitoring children’s use by using software to check what your younger kids are doing online. “What kids really hate is when you spy on them and don’t tell them,” he said. “What they don’t mind is you monitoring what it is that they are doing, then, as they get older, they earn the right to privacy by showing really good digital citizenship” Laur showed some of the privacy settings available to make sure too much information is not been seen by people other than friends. He also spoke about the importance of protecting our passwords. “Like your toothbrush or underwear, don’t share them,” he said. Laur also speaks to children. In fact, he has spoken to more than 137,000 students in Grades 6 to 12 in B.C., Saskatchewan and Washington State.

Parental Guidance

Malcolm Chalmers

Darren Laur explains the internet to parents who he calls digital immigrants. It’s the kids who he considers the ‘digital citizens, and adults need to keep up with them. Before he speaks at a school, he goes online and gathers information about students by ‘creeping’ their social media sites. He says he has creeped more than a million students. Then, at his assemblies, he shows them just how much information he can gather about them sometimes in as little as 15 minutes. He then explains how that information can be used against them. He has also created a false Facebook persona where he portrays himself as a 15-year-old girl. There he can interact with internet predators who are online. Sexting, punking, creeping and trolling are things he looks out for. After the assemblies he encourages kids to get in touch with him if they are having problems

with cyberbullying. He credits this work in saving 68 kids from harming themselves. Even though there are not as many predators stalking the internet some might think, they are out there, and precautions are necessary. “The internet can be like inviting a stranger into your child’s bedroom unsupervised,” he said. Get their laptops and smart phones out of their bedrooms is his suggestion. Lake Cowichan parent Jodie McKenzie appreciated the information. “We have roles in learning what to do and what not to do online,” she said. “Every parent that has a child should have been here tonight.” For more, go to personalprotectionsystems.ca.

The Cowichan Camerata String Orchestra is gearing up to put its stamp on Christmas. The group will host its Christmas concert Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at Duncan United Church. Some sing-along carols will be performed, giving folks the opportunity to be accom-

or Dolores Kirkwood, the most wonderful part of ballet is connecting folks from all over the world. In particular, the artistic director for the Royal City Youth Ballet’s Nutcracker performance swooping onto the Cowichan Theatre stage Dec. 20 and 21 is working with three male dancers from Brazil. “There are three fellows from Brazil and they’re such lovely people,” the long-time dancer, teacher and director said last week as her company was readying for its Surrey performances. “Two of them can’t speak English yet, but they’re learning. We train people to speak English as well as dance. They’re very high standard. They know they’re going back, one in six months, and one has been here for five years, and the other one has to go back in three months.” “You address your Based out of New audience and give Westminster, to each and every the RCYB is a unique one of them.” society of young people who attend daily classes at its individual dance schools and meet every weekend to attend company classes and rehearse full-length ballets such as the Nutcracker. Performing the classic Christ-

Kirkwood

mas ballet for 24 years, RCYB has worked its way into many folk’s hearts. And that works for audience members who attend the show on a yearly-basis, as well as dancers who bloom life-time careers under Kirkwood’s direction. “When I grew up, and had my stage experience, it was invaluable,” said Kirkwood. “This goes back to when I was 13, 14 years old. I was never afraid to go on stage. “I always thought this is just what you do, you address your audience and give to each and every one of them.” After many years working with dancers and directing the Nutcracker, Kirkwood’s still extremely enthusiastic about the company’s new blood and changes to the annual holiday production. “They can see that and if I love it, they love it too,” she said. Tchaikovsky’s lyrical and memorable score is widely known, while the tale of young Clara’s magical evening appeals to the believers in all of us. The RCYB’s cast of 100-plus dedicated dancers, with beautiful set designs by Jean Claude Olivier and extravagant, colourful costumes by Chris Sinosich make their version a wonderful visual feast as well. “This year, there are a lot of new costumes, because it had been some time since they had been replaced,” Kirkwood said. “This year there’s a new Mouse King and he’s added some new things that he does. There’s also a new Snowflake, with new costumes as well as

Ballet School this season because they didn’t have enough male dancers. “There are a good number of modern dancers, but that’s a different discipline,” she said. “The idea with the training, is it’s interchanging. Now some of our students would like to go for a three-month stint in Brazil. “I think creating the international contacts are so important.” With soldiers, the Snow King and Queen, Waltz of the Flowers, Arabian, Spanish and other favourite dances, the Nutcracker is a magical

choreography. “We often bring in different teachers and choreographers. The Spanish part is one that needs redoing often.” Kirkwood noted they’ve recently seen a noticeable shortage in local male dancers. “Most boys have gone to Europe, because as one dancer said to me, ‘They treat us like real people here, with medical, dental, regular pay scale, holidays,’” she explained. “But we have trained quite a few boys from Brazil.” Kirkwood contacted the National

WRIGHT, James Stewart Feb 8th, 1950 – Dec 9th, 2013 A genuine ‘one of a kind’ man has left us. Jim was a multi-talented person, a loyal husband and family man, and a hardworking provider who had a successful stucco contracting business until a devastating accident in 1994 left him burdened with chronic pain. Throughout, Jim was dedicated and involved family man who was known as the hill climbing crew chief for his boys. In the community he held court at the pool table, roamed the valley on his Shovelhead Harley and earlier, was an avid outdoorsman. A gregarious storyteller with an excellent memory, Jim was a friend to many. He had a warm spot for the underdog and that included animals too. This was most true with his constant companion, Cal the Cat. Jim’s death has left a deep hole in the lives of many. He was predeceased by his youngest son John in 2004. He is survived by his wife of 35 years Debbie, his son Michael, his brother Alex (Tammy) and his beloved granddaughters, Charlotte and Alexandra. A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at First Memorial Services, 375 Brae Road, Duncan on Friday December 20 at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations to Jim’s favorite charity the Cowichan Cat Rescue would be greatly appreciated.

HAWKSFORD Winnifred Maude,â€?Winnieâ€? (nee Hillyard) June 14,1914, Dec 4, 2013. Winnie passed away suddenly with family by her side, at Cowichan District Hospital, Duncan. BC. Born in York England, the family moved to Canada in 1924, settling in Duncan in 1927. She is survived by daughter Judy Gloster and Son Peter, grandchildren Kari (Gavin), Ken, Jacquie, Steve, David (Kim) Robert (Mhairi) Predeceased by brother Tony Hillyard and sister Betty Haggart. She always enjoyed family gatherings and we were planning and looking forward to celebrating her 100th birthday. Recently she would correct us when you say she is 99. “I’m 99 ½ you knowâ€?. She was looking forward to receiving a letter from the Queen for her birthday. She so enjoyed having family; especially little children visit, making for special moments. Special thanks to Judy and Jacquie for support over the years. Winnie until recent years loved her garden and dearly loved her pets. She loved to tell about her youthful fond memories of East Sooke and enjoying horse back riding throughout the Cowichan Valley with her sister Betty. She had a deep love of her birthplace Yorkshire, and made many enjoyable visits. Memories of Winnie will live on in all of us. A funeral Mass and celebration of life will be announced at a later date. In Lieu of flowers please donate to a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Joan. She was born and raised in London, England and came to Canada as a war bride in 1946. She raised her family in Saskatoon and Calgary, before moving to Duncan, B.C. in 1971. Joan enjoyed gardening, cooking, walking, good humour and entertaining her family and friends. She and Vern experienced many enjoyable trips camping in B.C. and travelling throughout Canada, the US, Hawaii and Europe. It didn’t take Joan long to pack her bags when there was an opportunity to travel. In her spare time Joan volunteered in the community, including serving as Senior Regent in the Moose Lodge. Predeceased by her son Keith, she is survived by her husband Vern, children Vivian (Barry), Les (Jeannie), Ruth (Trevor), Sharon and Gary; grandchildren Lori, Jennifer, Shauna, Kathleen, Greg, Daniel, John, Brandy, Michael, Kerri and Keith; great grandchildren Matthew, Nicholas, Liam, Dustin, Cara, Megan, Damien, Dayton, Anders and Gibson and many nieces and nephews. Special thanks to the staff at Sunridge Lodge for their care and compassion over the past five years – there are many that loved her dearly. Joan will live forever in our hearts and minds. A celebration of her life will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation in Joan’s name would be appreciated. SANDS of DUNCAN 250-746-5212

Wrestling crowd overflows gym

Cougar Classic: CVWC event still growing in size and intensity after nine years

Wedgwood House

News Leader Pictorial

T

he Cougar Classic continues to pack them in, no matter what the venue. The ninth-annual Cowichan Valley Wrestling Club event attracted a record number of 215 athletes to the Cowichan Secondary School gymnasium. Island wrestlers have always flocked to the event, but now “the teams from the Mainland are starting to come over,’’ said CVWC coach and organizer Nick Zuback. The event that began with 63 kids and has outgrown facilities at Queen of Angels, Mount Prevost and Chemainus Secondary is likely in need of another venue change. “We were bursting out of the seams there at Cow High,’’ said Zuback. “It was so jam-packed in there.’’ The quality of the wrestling competition in all classes was first-rate. Cowichan placed second overall in the junior team standings with 81 points, short of only winner Abbotsford Traditional’s 101. “We had a couple of kids that were out which would have been huge to that team title,’’ said Zuback. Alberni District was the runaway winner of the senior category with 94 points. Cowichan was sixth with 24. “We’re definitely a younger team,’’ said Zuback. “We had a lot of kids that graduated from the program.’’ Among those is Maegan Kuruvita, who’s doing very well at SFU. Chelsea Warke was a standout among the juniors, beating

clubmate Hannah Tuplin in the 51-kilogram girls’ final. “Hannah’s definitely one to watch,’’ said Zuback. “She’s firstyear. She’s like a sponge.’’ Many Cowichan wrestlers were winners in their respective categories. Damian McCuaig-Jones was among the other impressive rookies. Zuback also has a great group of elementary wrestlers.

Youth Athlete of the Week

Danielle Schmidt The oars are in the water, steering Danielle Schmidt toward a promising future in rowing. Shawnigan Lake School Grade 12 student Schmidt, 17, has a win in the national high school championships at St. Catharines, Ont. and a trip to Boston on her resume in the pursuit of a scholarship. “I’m kind of looking into San Diego,’’ she said. “That’s like my No. 1 school I’d really love to go to.’’ The University of Massachusetts Amherst, Ohio and West Virginia are other possibilities. For now, Schmidt’s rowing hard under the direction of coach Meghan Montgomery. “With Danielle having aspirations to row as she moves on to university, I’m definitely thinking about pushing her and making sure she’s prepared for the next level,’’ said Montgomery. Schmidt appreciates having Montgomery, who boasts Olympic rowing experience, as her coach. “It’s really cool to listen to some of the stories that she tells us and she gives us some advice as she’s heard from her coaches,’’ said Schmidt. The feeling’s mututal. “I’m new to coaching the girls’ team this year,’’ said Montgomery. “I’m definitely learning a lot about Danielle and I appreciate her leadership.’’

Paltry goal total costly for Caps Power shortage: Offensive production still sputtering Don Bodger

s long as the Cowichan Valley Capitals continue with the secondlowest goal total in the B.C. Hockey League, it’s going to be tough to win games. Miraculously, the Caps managed to win one of two games on back-to-back nights at Cowichan Arena while scoring just three goals, beating the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 2-1 Friday and losing 5-1 to the Penticton Vees Saturday. The Trail Smoke Eaters, who pay a visit to Cowichan Arena Thursday night, are the only team with less goals scored than the Caps. Nanaimo Clippers are here to complete the pre-Christmas portion of the schedule. “Right now, the important thing is we’re trying to keep the kids focused and not thinking about

going home to see family,’’ said assistant coach Aaron Plumb of two important games for the Caps. Jesse Neher scored on a first-period power play and Colton Kehler notched the winner with 7:49 left in the third — just enough to beat the Bulldogs. But the offense could only produce a second-period marker from Myles Powell against the Vees. Former Capital Steen Cooper had a goal and an assist for the Vees. “It’s good for him, at least,’’ said Plumb of Cooper. “He’s attacking the net and good things happen.’’ Cooper already has four goals since joining the Vees. He only had three before that with the Caps. “When you’ve been around the game as long as I have, it’s not a big deal,’’ said Plumb of Cooper’s return. “It’s just another game. “For the guys, I’m sure it was a bit of a distraction.’’ The Caps simply need to find a

Special teams would be a good start, said Plumb. “To get that cleaned up, that’s even one or two extra goals a game. “It’s frustrating. One line you get going and the other three don’t seem to do much. Not that they’re not trying. They just don’t know how to generate scoring opportunities.’’

Road Runners contribute $1,450 to KidSport Cowichan

ATHLeTiCS

The Ceevacs Road Runners continue to pump funds into the community. As a result of the Shawnigan Kinsol Half Marathon and 10.5-kilometre races held Oct. 27, the club made a donation Dec. 3 of $1,450 to KidSport Cowichan. The donations came from race participants and registrations. Danna Hadden, race director of the Shawnigan

Kinsol races, makes the donation to Deb Savory Wright of KidSport Cowichan, pictured. Through its many events, Ceevacs supports several charities in the valley, including KidSport Cowichan for its fall half marathon and 10-km races. KidSport provides a vital service to the youth of the valley who might not otherwise be able to participate in sports.

hawnigan Lake School emerged as the champions of the four-team Duncan Christian School senior girls’ Welcome Back basketball tournament. Shawnigan swept through its three games undefeated, winning 71-24 over Ucluelet, 42-26 over Cowichan Secondary and 52-33 over the host DCS Chargers. Cowichan edged DCS 40-38 in the opening game Friday that wound up determining second place. Cowichan also won 59-27 over Ucluelet. DCS finished third by defeating Ucluelet 87-36. It was a great chance for the local players to get in some intense basketball action before the holidays. Young seemed to be the operative word for the Cowichan and DCS teams. “I am happy with the progress of this very young team,’’ noted Cowichan coach Jim Nugent, who’s being assisted by daughter Danielle Nugent and Michele Keserich. DCS coach Michelle Nederlof reiterated the young theme for her team with three

seniors. The good news for her is she has a full bench of 11 players. DCS decided to forego putting a junior girls’ team on the court and run a Grade 8 program that will build the nucleus for a strong future. “That being said, after a few practices, I was thrilled to see how the girls functioned on the court as a team,’’ Nederlof indicated. With team captains Becky Bazinet and Carli Paterson doing a great job of mentoring, Nederlof feels the Chargers are bound to have a successful season. “The other veterans really stepped up in leadership as well,’’ Nederlof indicated. “I am more than impressed.’’ She cited the fantastic play of Lauren King-Nyberg, who overcame a sore foot all weekend and no one would have known the difference by the way she handled the ball and got back on defence. That helped King-Nyberg earn all-star status. Nederlof noted DCS has embraced ‘Rise Up’ as its theme. “Rising to the occasion is what we know we have to do this year with so many young players.’’ Tournament MVPs
