Deadline extended, a bit, for New Horizons employees Paul Rudan CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

It isn’t much, but employees of New Horizons care home have at least one more week of guaranteed work. Approximately 120 unionized employees of the extended care facility on 14th Avenue were informed Dec. 30 they would be laid off this

spring. The layoffs were expected to occur April 21, but this week employees received a letter telling them their final day will be April 30. “It’s still causing a great deal of anxiety for our members,” said Mike Old of the Hospital Employees Union which represents the vast majority of the employees. Last September, the

94-bed complex was sold to Park Place Seniors Living. It’s a private company owned by Al and Jenny Jina of Vancouver who operate 17 care facilities in B.C. and Alberta. However, the facility is still funded by Island Health. The health authority determines the care and service standards as well as the

amount of funding operators are allotted. The sticking point is the contract between the union and the employer which expires at the end of April. According to Park Place spokesman Ian West, the province has instructed care home operators to tighten their budgets. As a result, Park Place has chosen to hire a contractor to fill the

positions which may or may not include the current employees. “Contracting out is one of the few options we have to manage costs, which are increasing each year,” said West, vice-president of operations. “This is the best way to manage costs in a way that has the least impact on both our residents and our employ-

ees.” Old said the move will lead to less pay and benefits for employees, who are in this field because they enjoy helping others and not “to make a fortune.” “This is happening all over (B.C.)…but the concern is this hasn’t happened on the North Island before…families are worried about

the continuity of care for their loved ones,” he added. The union continues to meet with employees to discuss any updates and strategies. Old will also meet with Park Place representatives for further discussions. “Under the collective agreement the employer is required to speak with us,” he said.

says Smith. Hildering also went diving with Smith last month and was pleasantly surprised to see loads of healthy sea stars. However, she urges the public to keep a close watch on the shorelines, particularly at low tides, and report any possible findings and photographs of Sea Star Wasting Syndrome to the Vancouver Aquarium (www.vanaqua.org/act/ research/sea-stars). The website has a map showing where sea star populations have been hit along the B.C. coast, but a more complete map of the Canadian and American west coast is found on the University of California Santa Cruz website (www.eeb.ucsc. edu). Hildering is hopeful the two groups combine

their data and the mapping, and she urges local residents to report their observations to the Vancouver Aquarium to get a “better picture” of sea star health on the B.C. coast. “It’s important for the public to share their observations,” she said.

of Georgia, but divers began noticing sick and dying stars in early September 2013. n The phenomenon seems to be affecting a number of species including purple stars, pink stars, mottled stars and several others. However, the sunflower star appears to be the hardest hit species, with dense aggregations disappearing in a matter of weeks. n When sea stars are affected white lesions appear on an animal. Within hours or days the sea star becomes limp and its arms may fall off. Necrosis eventually takes over and the animal dies.

Sea stars: Coastal universities actively investigating mysterious die-off

Continued from Pg. 1

Researchers at the Vancouver Aquarium, the University of California Santa Cruz and Cornel University in New York State are among the think-tanks actively involved in the search for the reason for the decay, but they also need the public’s help. “We have huge gaps in observation,” says Hildering. “We need ‘citizen science’ to help us know what’s going on… this is a massive geographic effort.” Un d e r w at e r p h o tographer Eiko Jones and Smith regularly dive around Campbell River and the Discovery Islands, and are among the citizen scientists keeping close watch on local sea stars populations which appear as abundant as ever.

While the waters around Campbell River appear unaffected, sea star wasting has been found at the north end of Vancouver Island. Jackie Hildering took this photo of a deflated leather star with wasting syndrome at Bear Cove, near Port Hardy, on Dec. 21, 2013.

“Ever ything looks healthy. No sign of wasting,” says Jones, who dives 2-3 times a week

Council bucks up Get in your ‘two cents’ for no-shooting signs before budget’s decided Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Council demonstrated Tuesday night that it’s willing to help those who are willing to help themselves and the community. Council was faced with a funding request from the Campbell River Fish and Wildlife Club for two new signs – each costing $400. Impressed with the club’s initiative, Coun. Larry Samson encouraged council to grant the request. “My point is, it costs $800 for the two signs and here we have volunteers that are out in our countryside or rural areas, overseeing illegal activity, whether it be dumping of garbage, whether it be poaching of wildlife,” Samson said. “All they’re requesting is $400 per sign. I think it’s something we can step up and help them with.” The Wildlife Club is looking to replace two “no discharge of firearms” signs that it put up on the city boundaries a number of years ago. Jaysson Greenfield, wilderness

director of the fish and wildlife club, wrote in a letter to council that the signs include a map showing your location and the boundaries of the city. “The signs are there to assist hunters in identifying legal hunting areas and protect workers and other people enjoying the wilderness from injury from stray bullets,” Greenfield wrote. “They also state that the area is patrolled by wilderness watch volunteers, which is a great deterrent to poachers and polluters.” Two of the three signs the club put up, however, are in need of replacement and Greenfield hoped the city could help out with funding, which will include the City of Campbell River logo and outline the city bylaw for no discharge of firearms within the city limits. Council agreed to pay for the signs and approved a motion from Samson to fund the two firearm signs, with the money to come from either the 2014 roads department budget or the council contingency fund.

With the new year comes a new budget for the city and council is set to round out its financial planning meetings by month’s end. Originally slated for next Friday, the second of three meetings has been re-scheduled and is set to go Monday, Jan. 20, 9 a.m. at city hall. That meeting will focus on making any changes in city service levels that council sees fit as well as finding room for any new additions in the 2014 budget. The final part of the budget – the capital budget which includes sewer and water infrastructure projects – will be debated Wednesday, Jan. 29, 9 a.m. at city hall. Both meetings are open to the

public and can be viewed live or at a later date through the Council Webcast section of the city’s website (campbellriver.ca). The meetings will also be aired on Shaw TV the day following each meeting. Council has also set aside time at the beginning of each meeting for those who wish to speak to council on the budget; each person is allotted a maximum of five minutes. Currently, the city’s 2014 budget contains a 2.25 per cent residential tax increase and a zero per cent tax increase for business. For residents, the increase amunts to $31.72 for the average home assessed at $255,000. Council arrived at that figure after spending about three hours working on the base budget at its first financial planning meeting

Dec. 9. At that meeting council also agreed to increase taxes for managed forest lands and utilities (class 2). TimberWest, a major contributor from the managed forest lands tax sector, is scheduled to make a presentation to council at its Jan. 21 council meeting regarding that decision. The tax increase is expected to be phased in over the next three years and set at the average rate charged by other B.C. communities in order to generate an additional $100,031 in revenue for the city. The tax hike for utilities will be implemented over four years, with this year’s increase to be just onehalf of the increase in the three subsequent years.

Maritime directors wanted

Can you help the Maritime Heritage Centre?

The society that runs the waterfront centre is choosing its new board of directors and is currently accepting nominations. Do you want to see the Maritime Heritage Society enhanced as the place to visit, explore, and enjoy? You can make a difference,” says operations manager Trish Whiteside. Society members can self-nominate or nomi-

nate another member for a position on the board. All nominations will be considered and accepted contingent upon the nominee’s acceptance of the nomination. The benefits of volunteering with the Maritime Heritage Society are many. Directors hold leadership positions in the society and initiate exciting new ideas and projects that positively

impact the prosperity of the centre. Directors serve on committees and will be expected to be active with task forces, events, and other Maritime Heritage Society activities. Nominations will be accepted up to midnight on Feb. 20. For more information, contact Whiteside at 250-286-3161 or e-mail maritimeheritage.centre@crnfp.net

‘Two wise women’ bear gifts from Ishikari parade. A total of $14,500 was spent to host the delegates from Ishikari who came to Campbell River in July and $29,350 was

Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Though it was nearly two weeks after Christmas, “two wise women bearing gifts and a report” descended on city council Tuesday evening. That was how Lesia Davis described herself and Mary Ashley who, after seeing a busy night for council at its last meeting on Dec. 17, decided to give council a break and move their presentation to this week’s meeting. Davis and Ashley, who were a part of the celebration committee to mark the 30th anniversary of the sister city agreement between Campbell River and Ishikari, Japan, did indeed come bearing gifts and a slideshow of photos. “In late September, 19 delegates travelled to Ishikari,” said Davis. “The delegates met with the mayor and other government officials to discuss economic opportunities and the success of our student and cultural exchange program.” Chamber of Commerce representatives from both cities also got together and the delegates had the opportunity to tour Ishikari’s LNG plant which opened in December, 2012. The Campbell River visitors also participated in Ishikari’s 50th annual Salmon Festival, an anniversary celebration banquet and a Sayonara Celebration. They were sent back to Campbell River with gifts from Ishikari officials. Ashley and Lesia presented Mayor Walter Jakeway with the gifts at

spent to send the delegates to Ishikari. Ashley said there’s currently approximately $500 left in the Ishikari reserve fund.

CITY CURRENTS

30 years of sisterhood

City council received gifts from Ishikari to mark the 30th anniversary of its sister city relationship with the Japanese city. Pictured left to right are, Coun. Ryan Mennie, Coun. Ron Kerr, Freeman Mary Ashley (Ishikari anniversary committee), Coun. Mary Storry, Mayor Walter Jakeway, Coun. Claire Moglove, Coun. Andy Adams, Lesia Davis (Ishikari anniversary committee), and Coun. Larry Samson.

Tuesday’s council meeting. First up was a framed silk print from Pengzhou, China – Ishikari’s third sister city which was established in 2000. Then came a doll from Vanino, Russia – which has been a sister city of Ishikari’s since 1993. Lastly, Lesia and Davis presented Jakeway with the gifts from Ishikari – a wall clock to display the time in Campbell River; a lacquered stand with a clock on one side to display the time in Ishikari with two cranes flying over the rising sun painted on the other side; and a lacquered platter epitomizing the simplicity of Japanese art. Campbell River’s gift to Ishikari was a beautiful First Nations mask, Salmon Man, which was carved by Bill Henderson of the Wei Wai Kum First Nation. The carving is symbolic of the common

bond between the two cities – salmon, and it honours Ishikari’s annual Salmon Festival. Ashley told council that the gifts from Ishikari are to be displayed proudly. “These gifts are to be prominently displayed to remind us of the 30-year relationship that has resulted in the most successful cultural exchange program in Hokkaido and all of British Columbia,” Ashley said. “Seeing over 850 children visiting and studying between Ishikari and Campbell River, the relationship is founded on the strong ties that both communities have in common – the sea, and particularly salmon.” Ashley encouraged council to begin putting money into the Ishikari exchange reserve in preparation for the 40th anniversary celebration in 2023 after a running into a few challenges for

the 30th celebration. “C ounci l init i a l ly approve d rel e as i ng $37,000 from the Ishikari anniversar y reser ve fund, which was established 20 years ago and it has not been added to since 2003,” Ashley said. “I think it just slipped by us and we want to make sure that doesn’t happen

Hearing no objections, council approves workshop Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A variance to increase the maximum permitted height of a working garage to a home in the Painter-Barclay area was granted by council Tuesday night with no opposition from the neighbours. As part of the variance process, the owners were

s ™

SANDRA ALLEN CFP, TEP Financial Consultant sandra.allen@investorsgroup.com (250) 923-3121

tasked with holding a neighbourhood meeting to discuss their proposal, but nobody showed up. Council also did not receive any letters voicing concern by the start of Tuesday’s council meeting. Mayor Walter Jakeway said he couldn’t see anything wrong with the application to build the garage/workshop in the

owner’s back yard. “I went and looked at it today. It looks like it’ll fit just fine and the neighbours shouldn’t be offended,” Jakeway said. “The lots out there are all large and the neighbour out there that’s the closest has a fairly substantial evergreen hedge so they probably won’t see the building anyway. It looks like a good location.”

A report to council from Chris Osborne, city planner, agrees with Jakeway’s assessment that the closest neighbour, on Pengelly Road, should not be too greatly impacted. “There is a denselyspaced line of cedars along the lot boundary, approximately five metres high, which would very effectively

screen the building,” wrote Osborne, who recommended council approve the variance. “The proposed variance would not have a significant adverse impact on neighbouring properties, beyond that which might otherwise occur from a building of smaller floor area. The variance would not have an unacceptable impact on the character

and appearance of the area.” The proposed 110 square-metre garage is intended to be built to accommodate vintage logging trucks. Jakeway said the owner also plans to work on restoring vintage fire trucks. The garage is expected to be clad in wood or Hardieplank style vinyl siding in order to blend in with the

neighbourhood, as per a request from city staff. “Initially the applicant supplied images of a steel-clad building of industrial appearance,” Osborne wrote. “Staff voiced concern that this finishing, in combination with a larger building would introduce an unwelcome and discordant feature into a residential neighbourhood.”

Our View

First search, then rescue and then charge Another day, another story about outdoorsy people getting lost in the wilderness. As usual, when this kind of emergency occurs, it’s up to the dedicated people at search and rescue to leave their homes, put on their We say: Tax gear and comb the woods, mountain or whereever this particular person has payers should managed to misplace themselves. be compensated While the most recent story had a happy ending — two lost adventurers somewhat found their own way out of Mother Nature’s icy, deadly grasp — they don’t all end that way. Some searches require a huge amount of manpower,

machinery and a huge cost. The question that is always debated at this time of year is who should pay the usually significant cost to stage a rescue attempt? Some argue that the government should cover the costs, after all it’s our tax money. But wait! If you need an ambulance, isn’t there a surcharge for that service? So doesn’t it makes sense that a lost hiker, skier, snowmobiler or whomever, should at least pay something towards their rescue efforts? In British Columbia, where outdoor tourism is hugely important, shouldn’t there be a penalty on those who put themselves in dangerous situations? Accidents do happen, but in many cases the situation occurs because

of lack of planning, lack of experience or just a flagrant disregard for safety. People should pay something for those mistakes. If people are going out of bounds in ski areas or are acting contrary to conventional risk management precautions, then they should shoulder some of the cost of the rescue. It’s not realistic to charge them for the full cost of the rescue but some kind of penalty – sorry, contribution – is not unreasonable. Tourism is important to the province and we don’t want to deter people from enjoying the great outdoors. Our tax dollars do support search and rescue and rightly so if people take reasonable precautions but a contribution from people who do stupid things is warranted.

Letters

Must express anger

I must express the concern and anger I feel with respect to decision of Park Place the owners of the New Horizons senior care facility to give the 118 workers at the facility layoff notices. As detailed in the Mirror and Islander this action will facilitate the contracting out of those workers jobs. A New Horizons press release states “in line with the BC government’s directive to control costs, Island Health is looking at all operators to deliver care and services within their assigned funding.” Does anyone really believe this is the motive behind the action? I do not. I believe it’s about profit plain and simple and it is wrong on so many levels. First and foremost, we must be concerned about the residents of the facility. They are our mothers and fathers who have worked their whole lives and who deserve to live out their twilight years in comfort, dignity, and respect. They have formed real bonds with their caregivers. Recent experience with “contracting out” at other facilities suggests it leads to a lower standard of care. We need only look to our local hospitals for examples. Is this what we want for our seniors? Second are the jobs themselves. Are you prepared to let a Continued on Pg. 9

The movies aren’t great, but I still love the memories

Paul Rudan No, really

The film quality sucks. The images are grainy, spotty, scratched and there are small hairs obviously floating around between the lens and film. It gets worse, the colour is either washed-out or garish, and this isn’t helped by the fact the camera operator tends to over- or under-expose the film stock. The hand-held shakiness can also make you queasy and the editing...well...I’d say they did a better job on “Plan 9 From Outer Space,” widely regarded as one of the worst-made movies ever. Now that I got that off my chest, let me also tell you these are the finest films I’ve seen in years. Not that you would be interested, unless you are enthralled by someone

else’s home movies. Yep, there’s Paul as a happy toddler, a goofy kid wildly jumping into a small wading pool, and the long-haired, somewhat surly teenager who acts like “he knows it all.” The films also record the rest of the Rudan clan – all six of us – as we grow as a family through the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s. Christmases, birthdays, holidays and special events are all documented through the decades, just like all home movies. They show the friends I’ve grown up with all my life and it’s the “living historic record” of my grandparents and too many relatives no longer with us. It’s been more than 20 years since I watched any of these home movies and

the memories of them had slipped into the back albums of my mind. But on Christmas Day, Dad presented his four children with a gift of a lifetime: He had all the movies put onto fourDVDs, and we each received copies. After our gift exchange, we sat together and watched the first two hours with a mix of emotion. How can I not laugh at myself, just six or seven years old and mugging like an ape for the camera? And it’s nearly impossible not to shed a few tears seeing the people oh-so-important in our lives, but have left this life. They’re all there and seeing them again helps rekindle and refine old memories. So why am I telling you about the Rudan family’s old movies?

Well, I’m betting there’s a chest drawer somewhere in your home that has a bunch of old movies collecting dust. They haven’t been watched for years because the light in the projector blew out years ago and getting another is next to impossible. The other problem is the film stock is becoming brittle; films can break and then crumble. Those memories deserve better. These movies need to be preserved and watched, and today’s gadgets make viewing more accessible than ever. Do it for your kids or better still, do it for your aging parents and relatives. It’s one of the best gives you can ever give. paulr@campbellrivermirror.com

Well, now that the streets are open and the screwed up downtown is technically operating when are they going to remove those dumb stop signs at 10th and Shoppers Row? They cause traffic to back up past 11th intersection and do nothing for traffic flow. There was never a problem until the brianwave who designed the traffic flow got

involved. I think we need to promote the person or persons who designed the downtown so that maybe they don’t do so much damage (peter principle) in the future. There will be other places in that area that will have to be “fixed” at our cost. It will just take a few collisions before they get fixed. We have places like at 9th and

Dogwood that they can’t bother to put a lane sign on the light signal pole so drivers in the inside lane can see they must turn. I continually see cars on the inside lane still going straight down hill. I suppose a few more accidents will need to occur before that happens. Frans Hoogeveen Campbell River

Alberta. The average family struggles to make ends meet. This is a trend that must come to an end. Third, we need to look to the future. We must protect and create jobs that will allow our children to stay in this community and raise their families. Unfortunately, this action by

Park Place takes us in the opposite direction. I hope that that concerned citizens will contact their MLAs to demand action and when the next election comes around demand that the candidates take a stand for “Quality Health Care”. Tom Hopkins President, Northern Vancouver Island Area Council, PSAC

As we get set to put the finishing touches on 2013 in just a few weeks, it’s a good time to take stock of one of British Columbia’s most important industries – about where it is and where we’d like to see it go. The latest studies by PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and Coast Forest Products Association have unveiled an exciting snapshot of where coast forestry is today. It reveals a peoplefocussed industry that has undergone exciting transformations and emerged dynamic, modern, sustainable and high-tech. We pride ourselves on being highly integrated across industries with our member companies offering a plethora of opportunities that positively impact the lifestyles and livelihoods of thousands of British Columbians. Above all, Coast Forest member companies are people-focussed, paying more than $373 million per year in salaries with surveyed companies paying an average of $40/hour in wages and benefits to their employees. An estimated 38,000 people in communities throughout BC rely on a healthy coastal forest industry for their jobs

4x7 bc assessment

(direct, indirect, induced) – and this includes an estimated 5,735 direct jobs from contract logging. Further, coastal forestry in B.C. supports an important and valuable manufacturing sector in our province. More than 3,100 people work in over 100 companies producing value-added solid wood products like flooring, architectural woodwork and cabinets while 2700 people work directly for pulp and paper companies that manufacture newsprint, specialty paper and other products. As a stabilizing influence central to the health of our communities, we’re planning for the future. The coast forest products industry accounts for approximately 11 per cent of GDP in coastal B.C. and comprises an estimated 10 per cent of total jobs. We’re investing in our people and in innovation with more than $543 million put into mill upgrades, new equipment, and skills training over the past five years. Our snapshot tells a story about connection, integration and a plan for growing a bright future. So as we look ahead to 2014, we intend to continue our work with government and build on the momentum of transformation. Rick Jeffrey is President and CEO of the Coast Forest Products Association

Randy Friskie returns with Elvis’ movie music

Randy Elvis Friskie will perform Elvis’ tunes from his 50s, 60s ad 70s movies on Jan. 25 at the Tidemark Theatre.

Artist Trading Card event brings artists together for fun Artists of all ages who would like to create and trade miniature works of art are invited to attend the next Artist Trading Card event at the Campbell River Art Gallery, Thursday, Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. This is a fun, social and creative program that meets four times a year to swap trading cards. The only difference between these and sports trading cards is that you create your own homemade 2 ½ x 3 ½ inch trading card like a miniature work of art. Bring 15-20 art cards

to trade. New faces are always welcome. Just come and bring a friend if you like. Cards should be 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches exactly so they fit in the sleeves that are used for saving  baseball cards. The theme is open. Bring original cards, not photocopies. The cards are miniature works of art and are meant to be traded, not bought or sold. Your cards can be painted, collaged, mixed media, photographs, three dimensional shapes, or found objects.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT

It’s up to you where your creativity leads you. Sign the back as you would any art work and add your contact information if you wish ATCs have grown in popularity since their invention in 1996 in Switzerland. The Campbell River Art Gallery was the first place in BC to host an ATC event in 1999. The Gallery is located at 1235 Shoppers Row (the same building as the Visitor Info Centre). For more info call 250-2872261 or email contact@ crartgallery.ca.

Friday Jan 10

Randy Elvis Friskie and his Las Vegas Show Band are returning to Campbell River with a brand new show. That’s The Way It Is Tour will showcase on stage some of the most memorable moments and music from Elvis’ movies. Relive the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s movie scenes and songs from Blue Hawaii to Viva Las Vegas – including duets with Ann-Margret, Marilyn Monroe, Shelley Fabares and more. “I knew I was going to sing Elvis from the time I was a little boy and I saw Love Me Tender and cried when he died,” Friskie says. “My Mom had to tell me it was just a movie and that he was still alive. I started watching and singing and moving like him from from the time I was like five. I came from a musical family, played drums

and guitar but whenever I sang, I always had an Elvis sound and feel. I just knew it was meant to be and to this day I don’t know how I know some of the songs.” When he started out there were a few guys doing Elvis that called themselves Impersonators which was fine for them but Friskie said that he didn’t want to be an impersonator that he just wanted to do a ”Tribute” to the greatest performer that ever lived. “A tribute – not a copy – as I believe Elvis was so cool ‘cause he felt the music and lived it and made people live it with him and feel and that’s what I wanted to do,” Friskie says. “I didn’t want to fake and try to be Elvis. I wanted to be natural as he was and give people a chance to see what it might have been like to see Elvis live and

natural as I believe that’s when he was his best. That is why I made up tribute artist and that is what everyone uses now. “I just love to perform and believe its what I was put on this earth for. I just love people and music and making people happy and smile. It is truly what I believe a real performer lives for the people and the music is what drives us. I don’t really think fame or making it is really all that important if we can do what we truly love to do and make people happy, guess that’s what I think making it is. I truly feel like I’ve made it when we do a really good fun entertaining show and the people stand and clap and dance and show you that what you have lived for is touching them and they laugh and cry and say how it was a great show or the best they’ve

ever seen or how they met at one of the shows or they thought it was like seeing Elvis and I up there as one. “We are doing something that has never been done before. We have received so many requests for movie songs and hearing people state that they remember certain songs from many of the different Elvis movies. So we have put together a show featuring the hits from Elvis’ movies so people can relive the excitement. There will be duets from the movies with Ann-Margret, Shelley Fabares and more. This gives people a chance to relive and remember.” That’s the Way it Is Tour comes to Campbell River on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 7:30 p.m. at the Tidemark Theatre. Tickets: $39.50. 250-287-PINK (7465).

NIC’s Coastal Log Scaling program begins in February North Island College will offer a Coastal Log Scaling certificate beginning February 24 at NIC’s Campbell River campus. The full-time, 13-week program is designed for students looking for an in-demand forestry career. Graduates are prepared to write the Ministry of Forests theoretical and practical Coastal Log Scaling exam, required to work as a licensed log scaler. The program emphasizes practical skills. Students spend the majority of their time on dry-land log sorts, learning the steps required in weight scaling, how to grade logs and identify log species commonly found in

coastal log sorts, and more. Class lectures, directed home study, and field work are also required. In addition, students earn their Occupational First Aid Level One certificate. To participate, students must: n be physically fit and able to work in varied weather conditions n complete an interview with the instructor n be able to commit an average of 60 hours a week for classroom and home studies n successfully pass the log scaling math assessment Preference will be given to applicants with a minimum Grade 10 completion.

The Truck Loggers Association has generously donated funding to support program students. Six $1,000 awards are available to applicants who demonstrate clear career goals in the forestry sector and financial need. The ministry exam fee is not included in course fee. While the program is scheduled to conclude May 30, 2014, the course end date may be adjusted to align with Ministry exam dates. For more information and the Truck Loggers Association Award application, please contact www.nic.bc.ca/trades or Wendy Samaroden, Training Officer with NIC’s Continuing Education, at 250-923-9728.

Did You Know. . . Following a rehabilitation program is very important to your legal case. In law, the plaintiff (injured party) has an obligation to mitigate his or her losses. This means the plaintiff must take reasonable steps to minimize the losses he or she suffers by following the doctor’s advice regarding treatment and getting back to work as quickly as possible. By following a coordinated rehabilitation program, the client will be able to show the court he or she has made best efforts to improve injuries and function. Rehabilitation programs often involve the input of your family doctor, an occupational therapist or physiotherapist. Your personal injury lawyer must work with your doctor or physiotherapist (as well as other medical treators) to identify a reasonable rehabilitation program for your situation.

Looks Toyota has always been a logical purchase, based on reliability and durability but now its designs too are capturing buyers with a visual, desirable esthetic. The 2014 edition is 7.5cm longer (mostly in the rear seat and cargo area), 1.5cm wider and 3cm lower. The stance is wide and lower, making more of a visual impact. Combine this with a large grille borrowed from the Tundra pickup truck and the Highlander has a very rugged, yet polished, look that

The cup holder is large and the centre armrest has a massive storage area inside; this is thanks to the removal of the stowaway seat that used to hide under the centre armrest. Now in the second row of seats there are three permanent seats or two captain’s chairs in the top Limited model. The previous hideaway idea was simple but not so comfortable. The biggest change takes place in the third row of seats, where three people can sit rather than just two. In addition,

there is 100L of cargo space behind the third row of seats offering much better functionality. It has all the interior amenities that one expects in a modern three-row crossover, even a system that allows the driver’s voice to be amplified through the stereo for easier conversations with passengers in the very back, but there seems to be a lack of sophistication compared to its competition. Drive The previous Highlander was available with a 4-cylinder engine and front wheel drive (FWD). It’s with a standard 3.5L V6 with 270hp, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission, also with FWD. The starting price stays at $31,680; factoring in the backup camera there is good value here. When it arrives later this month, the base LE with all wheel drive (AWD) starts at $34,180. I think most people will opt for the LE with convenience package that includes 8-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, three-zone climate control, satellite radio and leather steering wheel to name a few. This brings the price up to $34,480 for the FWD and $36,980 for the AWD. On the road, the AWD system sends power to just the front wheels as often as possible with only 10 per cent of the torque shifting when cornering. The system has the ability to shift or lock up to 50 per cent of the power for better traction but limiting it to times

Question

when it is truly needed helps improve fuel economy. The other part of the fuel economy story is the all-new 6-speed automatic. The official fuel rating for the most popular AWD model is 11.5L/100km in the city and 8.2L on the highway, which is almost a full litre improvement in combined highway/city economy over the 2013 model. The rear suspension has been modified for a slightly more dynamic drive and improved ride. The steering is rather light and vague but the buyers of this type of product will appreciate the ease of use.

OF THE WEEK:

Verdict The Highlander is a functional vehicle for young buyers with kids and friends that need to get to practice and carry all the sports equipment that goes with it. Overall, a very good family crossover that will get the job done every day.

Safety Tip:

What do you think is the best special feature available in today’s cars and trucks? Please explain why you have made that decision.

Go to drivewayBC.ca to submit your answer.

With challenging road conditions across the province, January is always one of the highest months for crashes in B.C. Take some small steps to prepare your vehicle for the conditions, such as checking your tire pressure – tires deflate more quickly in cold weather – and top up your vehicle’s anti-freeze, windshield washer fluid, and gas.

Directors unsure about Tides Canada CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Kristen Douglas

A controversial funding request at Wednesd a y ’s S t r a t h c o n a Regional District meeting caused one director to take exception and prompted the board to ask for a review of its grant process. Cortes Island Director Noba Anderson brought forward an application for a grant-in-aid request, which would be paid out of Anderson’s electoral area budget. However, the group that would first recieve the grant, made some directors uneasy. Anderson made a motion to give a $2,500 grant-in-aid to Reel Youth, but the money would have to flow through Tides Canada – the Canadian branch of a U.S. foundation which gathers donations from foreign donors who want to donate to environmental and socialjustice projects, but can’t

because they don’t have charitable status. A re a D D i re c tor Brenda Leigh said she didn’t want the regional district to be affiliated with Tides Canada, which has recently come under scrutiny by the federal government, in any way. “I don’t feel we should be sending any money to Tides Canada because they are a multi-million dollar organization,” Leigh said. “If Reel Youth wants to make an appli-

cation for a grant-in-aid in their name I would support that, but I don’t want to send money to Tides Canada. They’re subject to a federal audit right now and I don’t want to be involved with them.” Anderson tried to assure Leigh that Reel Youth, which was asking for the funding to run a program to bring youth, adults, and seniors together to produce short films, is independent from Tides Canada.

“Reel Youth is a standalone project. They are under the umbrella of Tides Canada but they are a stand-alone board,” said Anderson who explained the money had to go through Tides Canada because Reel Youth doesn’t have charity status. That still didn’t please Leigh, who wanted the money to be designated specifically to Reel Youth and not Tides Canada. “My understanding is Tides Canada Foun-

and public-relations firms that have made significant political contributions to Vision Vancouver.” However, the Vancouver-based organization denies it has ever supported political parties or candidates. Still, the situation the board found itself in during Wednesday’s meeting called into question the grant-in-aid program,

which allows community groups in the regional district’s electoral areas to submit applications to their directors for community grants. The grants are then voted on by the board as a whole, and many directors are voting on groups they don’t know anything about. Zeballos Director Ted Lewis said the Tides Canada application put him in “an awkward situation” and suggested

staff review the process and perhaps clarify each grant-in-aid application at the staff level before it gets to the board for a vote. Leigh agreed. “When we don’t have that background info, that’s what makes me uncomfortable,” Leigh said. Director Andy Adams, and Campbell River city councillor, said while there was no doubt in his mind that electoral

directors do their due diligence in bringing forward grant applications, he suggested it wouldn’t hurt to have staff canvass other regional districts to see how they deal with grant-in-aid applications and the subsequent voting process. The board agreed and voted to have staff review the existing grant policy to determine an appropriate process for considering grant-in-aid requests.

Debate the issues of our time

Sandra Harrison will kick off the debate on crime at the next Philosophers’ Cafe.

Philosophers’ Café is an informal evening of dialogue hosted by a facilitator in which participants discuss current topics. On Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 6:30 p.m., the public is invited to join in an hour-long conversation on the theme “Tough on Crime or Smart on Crime?” The government says they will help keep our streets and communities

safe by enhancing victim’s rights and making offenders accountable. Critics say the government’s tough-on-crime policies do nothing to reduce crime. How do we deter crime, protect citizens and rehabilitate offenders? Is there a balance required between victim’s rights and offender’s rights? Does a minimum sentence make sense or should a judge be free to make the pun-

Busters Action Team will incorporate all these elements to bring participants a new training experience. Four local immigrants will share their immigration stories while cooking; participants can ask them questions and get first hand knowledge of interacting with immigrants.” The team was created in 2012 in Campbell River based on a successful campaign called the Anti-Rumors Strategy initiated by Barcelona City Council in Spain. The program expanded to the Comox Valley in 2013 and offered its first training to the Valley residents last year in September. The first Culture

Kitchen will take place 5:30-8 p.m. in both communities, on Jan. 29 at Robron Centre (Campbell River) and on Jan. 30 at the Comox Valley Family Services Association (Comox Valley). The training is open to the public; registration is required. For more information visit immigrantwelcome.ca/ mythbusters. The Immigrant Welcome Centre serves the Comox Valley, Campbell River and North Island. They provide services to immigrants to help them integrate and settle into Canada. Over 600 clients have been served in the past year as immigration continues to bring newcomers to the community.

ishment fit the crime? Is there a place for restorative justice? What do the experts say? What do you think? The presenter will be Sandra Harrison, former executive director with Alberta Correctional Services. As with each Café, Harrison will have just 10 minutes to introduce the topic, and then the floor is open for 50 minutes of discussion. Drop in to the Philoso-

phers’ Café in Campbell River, a friendly forum for reflection where you can join the conversation, or just sit back and listen. Members of the public are welcome to propose topics and introduce them at future Cafés. Themes should be of broad interest and national significance, and have an element of controversy to them. The moderator for

each evening is Greg Hill, executive director of the Campbell River Community Living Association. The Philosophers Cafe will be held in Sybil Andrews Cottage (Next to the Willow Point Hall) Wednesday, Jan. 15 6:307:30 p.m. Admission is free and there will be tea, coffee and cookies. For more information, call: Peter Schwarzhoff, rigoletto@ shaw.ca, (250) 778-0333.

Taking a bite out of local immigrant cuisine

The MythBusters Action Team partners with four local immigrants to launch their first Culture Kitchen workshop, an educational-based cooking demo, in Campbell River on Jan. 29 and the Comox Valley on Jan. 30. The team jumps outside their normal “classroom-type” diversity training and offers a “sit back and relax” style of fun and educational class. The MythBusters Action Team, a campaign initiated by the Immigrant Welcome Centre and funded by the provincial government, partners with four local immigrants from Mexico, Taiwan, France, and Italy to provide a different training experience to the communities. “As local demographics change and people are looking for more innovative and fun

training, the MythBusters Action Team is hoping to provide a relaxed style of afterwork educational experience to the public. Participants will learn cultural recipes, take a bite of authentic ethnic food, and get develop understanding on cultural differences and local immigration trends. At the same time, participants learn how to be MythBusters Agents who are committed to strengthening inclusivity in our communities,” said Rachel Blaney, Executive Director of the Immigrant Welcome Centre. Barbara Walker, President of the organization said, “Fun, food, and education can mix together very well. Members of the community have expressed to us that they prefer experiential education. “To respond to this request, the Myth-

Host of prizes for top Bowl for Breath fundraisers T he 26th Annual Bowl for Breath will take place on Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2 at Crystal Lanes Bowling Centre in Campbell River. The event raises funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and elementary, middle and secondary students can participate. Students can register at participating schools by contacting the school coordinator or checking in the school office for a registration form. Registration forms need to be returned to the school by Friday, Jan. 24 (earlier to make sure you get your preferred bowling time) or call Cindy Stewart at 923-3382 after that date. There are several shifts to choose from and each participant bowls two games. Students can participate by collecting pledges or making a minimum $10 donation to Cystic Fibrosis Canada Campbell River Chapter. Cindy Stewart, event

organizer says, “This year we are encouraging adults to register to bowl on Sat., Feb. 1 for the evening  - it is a lot of fun – bring your staff or friends and enter a team. You will have a good time and will feel great about helping people with cystic fibrosis at the same time.� Adults can participate by collecting pledges or make a minimum $20 donation per team member. Cystic fibrosis affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In cases where the lungs are most seriously affected, individuals find taking a breath a difficult chore.  For others, the disease starves their bodies by interfering with the absorption of nutrients as food travels through their digestive system. Most people with cystic fibrosis die from lung infection. In 1989, when the first Bowl for Breath was held, a person with cystic fibrosis was fortunate to live to fin-

ish high school. Today, thanks to improvements in medical care, 50 percent of people with cystic fibrosis are expected to live to reach their mid forties.  You are invited to join the Campbell River chapter in a fun day of bowling while making a difference in the lives of all people who cope with CF each and every day.  Participants are eligible for all kinds of prizes, but special recognition and prizes (including entry into a draw for a helicopter ride for five, courtesy of West Coast Helicopters) will be given for outstanding fund-raising efforts. Other major supporters include McDonalds, Shoppers Drug Mart, D.A. Roset Accounting, Save On Foods, London Drugs, Strathcona Gardens,Little Caesars, Superstore and Walmart.  Special recognition to the Campbell River Kinsmen who have strongly supported this event since it began 26 years ago.

Another helicopter ride is up for grabs for this year’s top fundraiser for the CF Bowl for Breath. Picture is Jens and Mary Rolinski, owners of McDonalds, Bob Nicoll of the Campbell River Kin, Cameron Michalko – last hear’s helicopter ride winner, Laine Valentine – West Coast Helicopters and Cindy Stewart CF volunteer and Bowl for Breath organizer.

Roger Dale GIONET February 29, 1952December 24, 2013

In loving memory

Sadly, our beloved Roger Dale Gionet left us on Christmas Eve, 2013 after a brief illness. Roger passed away peacefully at Vancouver General Hospital with his partner Debbie, son Matt and daughter Nikki by his side. Roger was the son of Leo and Helen Gionet, both of whom predeceased Roger. He is lovingly survived by his long term partner Debbie Leger, her daughters Denie, Leah and Gabrielle, his children Nikki Stewart (Andy) and Matt (Sylvia), brothers Barry (Cathy), Ron (Carole) and Wayne (Melinda), grandchildren Dakota, Brody and Kate as well as many other extended family members. Roger was born in Vancouver, raised in Toronto, and came to Vancouver Island as a young adult. As a successful young entrepreneur, he was a devoted friend and family member and could always be enticed to help out on any project or chore. He loved the outdoors and was instrumental in cultivating a strong work ethic in his young family by working at Elk Falls Mill as well as by following his own passions in home building and landscaping. First and foremost, Roger thrived on helping his friends and his family. After retiring, Roger became very active in various sporting activities, including triathlons, cycling, kayaking, and running. In his retirement as in his working life, he was a valued and important member of his community and many people came to rely on his giving spirit, active nature and wonderful smile. As a family, we would like all the nurses and doctors at the Campbell River Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital ICU to know how grateful we are for all your efforts and devotion. A special thank you to Doctors Mahoney and Grace, Nurses Brad and Tess (Campbell River ER/ICU), and Anita and Robert (VGH ICU). We will never forget all the compassion and determination you showed. In honour of Roger Gionet, please join his family and friends in a Celebration of Life on February 1, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at the Campbell River Sportsplex, 1800 S. Alder St. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Roger's name to Greenways Land Trust or the Campbell River Hospital Foundation.

MILLER, John Alexander

December 22, 1948 December 28, 2013 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of John Alexander Miller, who passed peacefully in his sleep in the comfort of his home surrounded by the ones he loved. John was a man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He was a passionate cook, he loved everything to do with hockey, great music especially in concert, cold beer, being with his grandchildren in any way he could, especially taking in the sun at the park and watching them smile and laugh. John is a man who will forever be remembered as a loyal and loving husband to his wife of 33 years, Deborah Lynn Davidsen; as an attentive, proud and devoted father to his children; Lisa May Miller, Sheryl Lynn Miller and Alan Karl Miller, and as a grandfather like no other to his most precious valued gems grandchildren Kacee Stranaghan, Nevaeh Stranaghan, Jayden Crossley, Brooklyn Crossley and Ryder Crossley One of John’s most recent and treasured experiences was a suprise trip to Vancouver to take his grandson Kacee to his first Canucks game. An experienced he truly valued. John was a man who had a fire to his character that couldn’t be missed. He told it how it was, with or without sugar. His often blunt nature was cherished wildly by the people who loved him. Above all else, John’s main ambition was sharing his great passion for love and life with those he loved. He never missed an opportunity to throw a hug in someone’s direction and say ‘I love you’ whenever he could. John had an ability to see the the very best in everything and everyone, he loved fully and selflessly and will be eternally missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him. ‘You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you’re always by our side.’ In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Lung Association would be appreciated. Celebration of Life at a later date. A special thanks to Dr. Veerappan for all of his help and the nurses and staff at CR Hospital. Dr. Veerapan is the best. A special thanks for the outpouring of love and support.

Tough break

Above, the Comox Valley Chiefs goaltender takes a moment after allowing a fourth straight goal against the Peewee A Tyees Sunday at Rod Brind’Amour Arena. Things would get better, though, as his team rallied to knock off the Tyees 8-6. Above right, Tyee Jalen Price gets a hold of the puck through traffic near the Comox goalie’s crease.

Five from Storm selected to play in all-star game The 2014 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL) All-Star Classic will feature five players from the Campbell River Storm. The roster also includes 16 of the top 20 scorers in the VIJHL, including the top five – Brendan deVries (Campbell River), Connor Logan (Peninsula), Garrett Dunlop (Nanaimo), Brayden Taekema (Campbell

River), and Alex Milligan (Kerry Park). For Team North, snipers include the high scoring duo from Campbell River deVries and Taekema who will be supported by their Storm team mate James Severs, and an exciting cast of players that include Comox Valley Glacier King’s Duncan Pernal, Ali Gotmy and Brendyn Smith; second in team

scoring Jordan Levesque (Nanaimo) and veteran Daniel Foglietta. Travis Flug and Brodie Smith (Oceanside) who are first and second respectively in their team scoring, round out the forwards for the North along with Nate Fitzpatrick (Oceanside) . The defensive side for the North includes Campbell River’s Trent Johnson and Alex Brewer

who lead defensively in points for their team, Nick Tupper (Comox), Noah Russie and Dayton Boutillier (Nanaimo) and Liam Peel (Oceanside). For Team South, forwards include Sam McMullen (Saanich), Jackson Skerratt (Peninsula), Mark Walton (Victoria), and Brett Lervold (Westshore). Rounding out the forward lines for the South are rookie Tate

Coughlin (Peninsula), Dayne Ellison (Saanich), Blake Roney (Victoria), David Marshall (Victoria), and Connor Krupa (Westshore). On the defensive side, the South will be led by Graham Zagrodney (Victoria) who sits first in league scoring by defencemen. Additional rear-guards include Garrett Kemmler (Saanich), Sean Buchanan (Penin-

sula), Robert Zadra (Victoria), and Tyson Young (Westshore). The battle between the pipes pitts the North’s Jack Surgenor (Campbell River), Michael Hails (Comox) and Ryan Waldhause from Nanaimo against the South’s Stephen Heslop (Peninsula) along with Conner Beauchamp and Nathan Hargrave – both from Victoria.

The North All Stars will be coached by Brad Knight from the Buccaneers and the South All Stars will be led by Mark van Helvoirt from the Cougars. The puck drops at 3 p.m. at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan on Sunday, Jan. 26. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and $6 for children and will be available at the door.

FRIDAY, JANUARY JANUARY 10, 10, 2014 2014 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || 27 27 FRIDAY,

Peewee Tyees meet some unfamiliar foes After some early morning on-ice conditioning sessions to burn off turkey dinners the Mainstream Biological Consulting Peewee B Tyees returned to play just down the road at the Comox Chiefs tournament January 3-5. On the first morning of the tournament the Tyees faced the Nanaimo C lipp ers. Nanaimo got on the scoreboard first but Tyee defenceman Heydon Campbell ripped a slap shot from the blue line to get the Tyees’ first goal. The Tyees used the momentum to keep the puck in Nanaimo’s end and Ethan Mainprize was in perfect position in front of the net to tap in a rebound to tie the game at two. A bit of back and forth offence followed. On a 5-on-3 powerplay for the Tyees, the Tyees capitalized. Improved passing and playmaking gave the Tyees more room and time to create scoring chances and the game ended in an 8-4 win for the Tyees. Next up that afternoon was the host Comox Chiefs. The Tyees’ Nathan Lagos scored an incredible four goals, with a fifth coming from Kyle Billy. Goaltender Jayce Hudak came up with some great saves for the Tyees but the Comox offence was strong as well. The game was tied at five when the Tyees took a chance on a power play and pulled Hudak to get a 6-on-4 situation but Comox scored with about a minute left in the third period to make it 6-5 for the home team. The next morning the Tyees faced unknown opponent Sooke “A”. Sooke got on the board first as the puck was deflected off a Tyee’s shin pad. Billy answered back for the Tyees but the tie situation didn’t last long as Sooke rallied with five straight goals. Billy was brought down on his way to another goal and was awarded a penalty shot late in the third period. Using amazing patience and stick handling he

waited for the big Sooke goaltender to go down and raised the puck up and over to get the Tyees’ third goal. Despite a huge effort, the game ended in a 6-3 loss to the higher-tiered Sooke

team. The last round robin game saw the Tyees face Oceanside - another higher-tiered team. A win would result in a second place standing, a loss or tie would put the

Tyees in fourth. The game would have a number of penalty calls, but in the first minutes the Tyees found themselves on numerous power plays. Tyees Nathan Lagos and Rob-

ert Gurney each had powerplay goals to open the scoring but soon the Tyees found themselves in the penalty box and Oceanside used the advantage to get on the scoreboard.

After trading goals back and forth, the game ended in a 4-4 tie. In the Tyees final game, again versus the Nanaimo Clippers, the Tyees came up with a big 6-1 win to end on a
