Massive trade deals opposed

Scott Stanfield Record Staff

The Comox Valley and other communities throughout the Pacific Rim banded together Friday on the Inter-Continental Day of Action against trade deals and corporate power. The local chapter of the Council of Canadians, which organized a gathering at the corner of Fifth and England in downtown Courtenay, fears

trade agreements will make it more difficult for Valley residents to protect and strengthen public services and the environment. The council says the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) threatens Canada’s ability to make local, democratic decisions. Among other things, it says Canadians have paid $160 million, and are facing another $2.5 billion, in North American Free Trade Agree-

ment (NAFTA) claims. “Our public health-care system has been challenged,” council member Barb Biley said. “Safety and building codes are at risk. Green jobs and sustainable energy are being threatened. Challenges made because Crown corporations give preferential treatment. Pharmaceutical companies failing to deliver on drug promises are challenging patent laws.” ... see CONCERN ■ 3

Courtenay’s Ken MacLeod recently opened his mail to discover a hand-signed letter from iconic Second World War songstress Dame Vera Lynn. MacLeod had written to her earlier on behalf of a group of Comox Valley performers who put on a musical tribute called Memories of the War Years: A Musical Tribute to Veterans. “It was a thrill and it was certainly a very personable letter,” MacLeod says of Lynn’s response, which he shared right away with Len Wilkie and the Lensmen and members of the Evergreen Choristers who performed in the tribute. “Everybody’s thrilled. They think so highly of her, they really do. She’s very well thought of, very highly esteemed.” The English singer, who is now 96, was known as The Forces’ Sweetheart during the Second World War as she travelled during the war to perform concerts for the troops. She was very famous, and MacLeod recalls hearing her voice fill his home when he was young. “My mother had — everybody’s mother had — Vera Lynn records, so I knew of her music for years,” recalls MacLeod. The musical tribute to veterans — which was performed in early November at the Florence Filberg Centre Conference Hall — featured a couple of Lynn’s songs famous during the Second World War, White Cliffs of Dover and We’ll Meet Again. The performance was dedicated to Lynn and to veterans in the audience. MacLeod’s wife shot a video of

the musical tribute and MacLeod sent the video and some photos of the cast along with the letter. Though MacLeod says he’s thrilled she responded, he’s not surprised because she has always been “the heart of the people.” Lynn thanks MacLeod for his letter saying “it is so nice to hear from people from Canada,” and that she really enjoyed performing here, noting one concert on Vancouver Island in particular. “Thank you for the tape and (keeping) these wonderful songs going, we must never forget those that gave their lives for us,” she continues, calling the tribute “marvellous.” “Give my best wishes to all the boys and girls from the show and yourself, of course.”

Herb Bradley organizers praying for some snow

Mount Washington is closed for skiing, at least for the time being, though the organizers of an adaptive snowsports event still hope to host an annual fundraiser on the slopes. Despite the lack of snow, organizers hope to host the annual Herb Bradley Pepsi Challenge on Feb. 16. Named after the founder of adaptive snowsports in the Comox Valley, the event is the main fundraiser for the Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports. Proceeds support programs for 500-plus participants each season.    “To join in the fun, just round up three people willing to attach themselves to skis or snowboards and navigate down a gentle slalom course,” said Brian Lees, co-organizer of the 2014 HBPC. “No experience is required.” Entry fee is $300, which includes lift tickets and lunch. For more information, contact Lees at 250-202-1513 or twinsport@shaw.ca, or Brian Gorman at 250-218-6335 or givebrianahug@gmail.com. You can also visit www. visasweb.ca. The Mount Washington Alpine Resort received a double whammy of no precipitation in recent weeks combined with an aggressive inversion weather pattern. As a

THE 2013 HERB Bradley Pepsi Challenge was a success, although the 2014 event needs snow on Mount Washington. result, the snowpack is too lean to continue with alpine and Nordic operations. For the time being, the Nordic Centre is open on weekends only. For the latest mountain information and to check webcams, visit

mountwashington.ca. “We knew we could make it through the first inversion which began a few days after our opening day on Jan. 12,” said resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. “But the next inversion wave was even warmer

and deteriorated our snowpack so much it has forced us to close the mountain. Our plan is to reopen with the next significant snowfall.” In a move to put season passholders’ minds at ease, Mount

Washington will implement a new ‘100 day assurance’ clause that guarantees 100 days (which is equal to 100 per cent) of skiing or boarding per winter season. The mountain will then deduct a point per day that the mountain is open. So for this season, the mountain is counting 14 days of open operations from Jan. 12 to 26. With the 100 day assurance, passholders are entitled to an 86 per cent credit towards the cost of next winter’s season pass. Mount Washington is waiting to see what the season brings before making a decision on what to do with 6ixPak customers. The mountain would

reopen if the drought breaks and snow returns. The inversion, a weather phenomenon where temperatures

rise with elevation, brought temperatures as high as 16 Celsius to Mount Washington’s alpine.

Concern remains about FIPPA

College tuition fees rising over students’ objections Renee Andor Record Staff

North Island College students will pay two per cent more for their domestic tuition again next year. The college’s Board of Governors voted last week to approve the two-per-cent increase for tuition and mandatory fees for courses and programs starting after Aug. 15. Two per cent is the maximum allowable increase

for domestic tuition under the Province’s tuition limit policy. The two student representatives on the board — Jacelyn Lobay and Amitej Walia — opposed the tuition increase, according to NIC director of college and community relations Susan Auchterlonie. Lobay “stated that while the students recognize that the college’s current fiscal situation is difficult, annual tuition increases are, of

course, compounding, and as such, the rising cost of tuition is having a great impact on our students,” recalled Auchterlonie. While Auchterlonie said the board understood Lobay’s concerns, it needs to be able to balance its budget. This tuition increase means $74,000 in additional revenue for programs funded by the college’s base operating grant from the Province. As it did last

year, the college expects to receive a reduced operating grant from the Ministry of Advanced Education this year. “We have been advised that we will be receiving a reduced operating grant which makes it, in the board’s perspective and the administration’s perspective, all that much more difficult to balance our budget,” said Auchterlonie, noting reduced operating grants are part of the Prov-

ince’s plan to save $50 million in advanced education spending over three years. “Everyone was very respectful,” Auchterlonie said of the board’s discussion about the domestic tuition increase. “The students certainly understood the need from a budgetary point of view but also really wanted to impress the fact that our mandate is access and affordability, and by continuing to increase tuition it is becoming less

affordable for students from our region to attend. “There’s a great deal of sympathy on the board for the students’ position. It would, I believe, be the board’s preference not to have to increase tuition, if we were to be appropriately funded.” Despite the tuition increase, NIC continues to have the lowest tuition of post-secondary institutions on Vancouver Island.

Annual Spin-a-Thon raises money to help kids play sports Erin Haluschak Record Staff

He just keeps on spinning, but it’s not just in circles.

Glenn Hascarl, a fitness instructor with the Comox Recreation Commission, is organizing the third annual Spin-a-Thon, a

24-hour spin bike fundraiser with all proceeds raised benefiting the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program. The organization

helps financially disadvantaged kids participate in physical recreation. “This year, we’ve got a larger facility (Gym A), there will be snacks, a play area for kids, and I’m hoping to have more people stick around to create a social atmosphere,” explained Hascarl. The event is scheduled for March 1 and 2, beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday and running until 3 p.m. Sunday. There will be a wrapup following the last hour, and Hascarl hopes to beat his goal of $16,000 raised last year. “The goal this year is to surpass $20,000,” he said. “All money raised in the fundraiser stays in the Comox Valley.” He encourages riders from all experiences levels, adding participants don’t have to be cyclists or regular gym attendees to join. People can organize a team from six to 24 people, with an entry of $300/team, or sign up as an individual and join a team. There is room for 15 to 20 teams, and Hascarl added partici-

The ‘O’-Spot will feature oyster and geoduck bars paired with award-winning wine and beer as well as an endless array of gourmet eats from Tria Fine Catering featuring shellfish and seafood, and a medley of non-seafood choices for those who prefer something from the land rather than the ocean. Featured entertainers Rosie Bitts Burlesque and The Dirty Boys, a five-piece band from Victoria playing prohibition-era jazz and country swing, will have guests throwing caution to the wind and dancing up a storm.

Help for Bates coming Scott Stanfield Record Staff

An online campaign has generated more than $20,000 for Gayle Bates, a popular Comox Valley resident who is battling breast cancer. Over the years, Gayle has emceed various fundraising events, instructed customer service training programs and taught waste reduction classes. She also sits on various boards. The single, self-employed mother and grandmother will not be able to work for about a year during treatments.

“Thank you so much for the peace of mind that you kind souls have afforded our mom,” Gayle’s children Jackson Tegu and Ashley Hoffart state on the campaign page. Three business owners have insisted Gayle accept their services or goods without compensation. Upwards of 270 people have made online donations. Visit www.gofundme.com/gayle-bates. A fundraising event with a Bollywood theme is being held April 4 at the Filberg Centre. The goal is to raise about $10,000 for reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com Bates.

The Comox Valley boy underwent surgery at BC Children’s Hospital in October to remove one of two tumours on his brain. Although the surgery was considered successful, doctors were not able to remove all of the large tumour, as portions of it are embedded in the brain and cannot be removed surgically, say fundraiser organizers. “We are hoping to help Mark and Yvonne financially as they fight through this life-changing event so they can be by their son’s side in Vancouver, which will be upwards of another six months,” they add. “Markus’ dad Mark works out of town most of the time, as his job takes him to various places renovating and constructing, however his life has been put on hold as he stays by his son on his road to recovery.

THE FIVE-TIME GRAMMY-WINNING Blind Boys of Alabama will be at MusicFest 2014.

Storied Blind Boys will ‘spiritually uplift’ VIMF crowd For those who regularly attend the Vancouver Island MusicFest, the Sunday morning Gospel Show has become one of the most anticipated performances of the weekend. This year, executive producer Doug Cox has booked the fivetime Grammy-winning gospel group Blind Boys of Alabama to headline the MusicFest mainstage on Sunday morning, July 13. “Sunday mornings at the festival have always had a sort of

magic about them,” says Cox. “I can only imagine how special it will be this year when Blind Boys of Alabama take the stage.” The Blind Boys of Alabama first sang together in 1944. Since then, the group’s output has spanned seven decades of tours and appearances. The performing core of the group consists of seven musicians, including three blind singers, original founding member Jimmy Carter, Ben Moore, and Eric (Ricky) McKinnie, guitarist

and musical director Joey Williams and a keyboard player, a bass player, and a drummer. Since their formation, the Blind Boys have made it their self-proclaimed goal to “spiritually uplift audiences.” The gospel group has been a source of inspiration for those with disabilities. In the words of McKinnie, “Our disability doesn’t have to be a handicap. It’s not about what you can’t do. It’s about what you do. And what we do is sing good gospel music.”

Thursday Jazz Night has special treat this week And now for something completely different! (Musically speaking, that is.) Georgia Straight Jazz Society Thursday night performances usually feature fine musicians from this region of Vancouver Island, but this week will be a significant digression from the ordinary when the highly respected Edmonton-based Don Berner Sextet takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. This out-of-the-ordinary event occurs due to the band having a spare Thursday evening in their Western Canada tour schedule, which just happened to coincide with the jazz club schedule. So this is your first local opportunity to see and listen to this muchvaunted lineup of fine jazz musicians, including one of Canada’s fastest-rising saxophone stars. The sextet features the compositional talents of all of its members, who are all very capable bandleaders and composers in their own right. The horns in the sextet consist of Doug Berner, Don Berner, and Audrey Ochoa, while the rhythm section is filled out by Chris Andrew at the keys, Marc Beaudin on bass, and Juno Award nominee Sandro Dominelli at the drum kit. Those folks who know the contemporary jazz scene in Canada will know that this is a group not to be

The Georgia Straight Jazz Society presents: “ONE OF CANADA’S fastest-rising saxophone stars,” Don Berner leads a sextet this Thursday at the Avalanche Bar and Grill.

I don’t wear a fedora, I don’t ❝ wear zoot suits, and I don’t sleep in till noon. Don Berner ❞ missed. They’ve been recorded by the CBC and broadcast on both Tonic and Canada Live as well as being found online at CBC’s Concerts on Demand. If you’re a fan of the high energy, heavy swing, and intricate compositions of the groups of Dave Holland, Art Blakey, or the Marsalis Brothers, this is a band that car-

ries on those traditions while engaging in new and original material. “I don’t wear a fedora, I don’t wear zoot suits, and I don’t sleep in till noon,” says Berner. He’s a regular performer at the Edmonton Jazz Festival, served as its co-producer for two years, and has been a featured performer at the

Montreal Jazz Festival. He’s also played alongside the Temptations, and performed at the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico, to name only a few accomplishments.  Juno Award winner P.J. Perry has called Don Berner “one of Canada’s fastest-rising saxophone stars. Reeds, doubles, solos, he does it all.” Berner is the lead alto player in the Edmonton Jazz Orchestra. He can be heard on numerous CDs including his own debut CD Sextet and

the sextet’s latest, Love Letters to a Rat Free Capital. Copies of these and other Berner CDs will be on sale at the club this Thursday. This will be a popular event, so plan on arriving a little earlier than usual if you want to meet friends and get the best seats.

The Comox  Valley Art Gallery is hosting a hello/ goodbye party on Wednesday evening to say farewell to two key staff members and introduce their replacements. Curator Anh Le, who joined the gallery in 2007, is moving to Vancouver. She began as program co-ordinator, became executive director in 2010, and has been the curator since 2011. The gallery is also saying a temporary farewell to executive director Sharon Karsten, who recently gave birth to her second child. Karsten will be on maternity leave for one year. “Anh did a magnificent job over the past six years,” said Roger Albert, president of the gallery’s board of directors. “While we’re very sad to see her go, we’re excited to see her pursue new opportunities.” Albert said the gallery is also excited to welcome Angela Somerset as the new curator/program direc-

tor. Somerset has a strong background in interdisciplinary art practice, with a focus on installation art, visual art, video and sound art, performance, print media and artist’s books. “Angela brings a great deal of energy, passion and skill to the job,” he said. “Her background and experience will help with a smooth transition.” Albert said Wednesday’s party will also give people a chance to get to know Glen Sanford, who will serve as executive director while Karsten is on maternity leave, and Sue Pyper, who joined the gallery gift shop team in December. The hello/goodbye party will take place Feb. 5 at the Comox Valley Art Gallery at 580 Duncan Ave. in Courtenay. There will be a cash bar, and light snacks will be served.

Gogo possesses lengthy resumé Don’t sing the blues this Valentine’s Day — let David Gogo and his band do that for you in The Venue Formerly Known As Joe’s Garage in Courtenay. As one of Canada’s hardest-working and most prolific blues guitar virtuosos, Gogo has amassed a worldwide fanbase and an impressive list of accomplishments. He has earned four Juno Award nominations, the 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year, the CBC Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year. In March 2013, he was the supporting act for blues legend B.B. King for the third time in his career, this time at the Port Theatre in Gogo’s hometown of Nanaimo. Gogo has released 13 albums to date and has been a guest on a number of recordings. He has composed music for television and major motion pictures and his songs have been performed and recorded by musicians worldwide. He continues to tour relentlessly, performing across North America and Europe in venues ranging from small blues bars to massive blues festivals. Because of limitations set out in the rules for the special occasions license, tickets must be purchased in advance of the show and are available at Bop City Records.

Bee is a folk/indie singer and songwriter from Hornby Island who uses her natural facility with voice, words and images, melodies and chords to paint pictures both sweet and savage, to captivate the imagination and inspire thought and feeling. Bee happily makes the journey to the Valley from Hornby to offer her voice and songs (and song interpretations). Her music has a raw, sweet sound with a soft edge of pleasurable intimacy. Raised in the North with nothing but homegrown music, she feels like a missionary of song, drawn to contribute her unique voice to the modern musical

North Island College’s Institute of War and Peace will present a screening of Waltz with Bashir on Feb. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Stan Hagen Theatre on NIC’s Comox Valley campus. All are welcome and there is no charge to attend. One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari Folman about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night, the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there is a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early ‘80s. Ari is surprised that he cannot remember a thing anymore about that period of his life. Intrigued by this riddle, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Ari delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up in surreal images. Waltz with Bashir is the result — a stirring, award-winning documentary about the 1982 Lebanon War, the siege of Beirut, the relationship between the Israeli army and Bashir Gemayel, senior commander of the Lebanese Christian militia (the Phalangists) and soon-to-be President of Lebanon, and the Phalangist massacre of Palestinian refugee

North Division title race in home stretch

Second-place Glacier Kings and first-place Storm both have five RS games left Earle Couper Record Staff

Gimme five. That’s the number of points by which the Comox Valley Glacier Kings trail the Campbell River Storm in their race for top spot in the North Division of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. Both teams have five regular season games left in which to decide the issue, including a Feb. 10 showdown in Campbell River. The Yetis fell a bit farther back of the Storm after splitting their last two games while C.R. is on a three-game winning streak. On Jan. 31 in Courtenay, the Glacier Kings got fourpoint performances from first star Eric Margo (1g, 3a) and second star Duncan Pernal (2g, 2a) in a 6-1 rout of North Division cellar-dwellers Oceanside Generals. Third star Liam Shaw added two assists. The Generals out-shot the G-Kings 36-28, with Michael Hails picking up the win. The visitors were 0-for-5 on the power play while the Yetis went 2-for-4. Comox Valley led 2-1 after one period and 5-1 after

Whalers keep it close

PARTICIPANTS PREPARE FOR fundraising fun at last year’s Herb Bradley Pepsi Challenge on Mount Washington.

VISAS fundraiser on tap There’s still time to register a team for the 2014 Herb Bradley Pepsi Challenge, which is scheduled to take place Sunday, Feb. 16 on Mount Washington. Over the years many Vancouver Island businesses and families have supported this annual event by entering a team for a fun day on the slopes. The Herb Bradley Pepsi Challenge (HBPC), named after the founder of adaptive snowsports in the Comox Valley, is Vancouver Island Society for Adaptive Snowsports’ (VISAS) main fundraiser. Pro-

Families can try horseshoes

The Comox Valley Horseshoe Club is holding its annual meeting Sunday, Feb. 23 at 1 p.m. sharp in the Salish Building at Lewis Park in Courtenay. The club wants everyone to play the game, and has a family plan (“A first for British Columbia,” spokesperson Oliver Watkins says) where mom and dad (adults) pay $25 while two or three kids (8 to 17 years) are free. “Sign up early as space is limited,” Watkins said. The season starts April 3 at 6 p.m. For more information, phone 250-3362148 or 250-338-8941. – Comox Valley Horseshoe Club

ceeds support adaptive snowboard and ski programs for 500-plus participants each season.    “This fundraiser,” said Brian Lees, coorganizer of the 2014 HBPC, “provides the dollars to run our Winter Sports Festival, the racing program, and upgrade our adaptive ski and snowboard equipment.” With the generous support from Peter Gibson and his team at Mount Washington, VISAS’s program has grown to be one of the biggest in Canada, offering people with physical challenges

or who are developmentally delayed the opportunity to get out each winter and have fun on the slopes and trails. “To join in the fun on Feb. 16 just round up three people willing to attach themselves to skis or snowboards and navigate down a gentle slalom course,” added Lees. “No experience is required.” The entry fee is only $300 and includes lift tickets for the day and lunch, charitable donations are welcomed. “Each team will be allocated one of our smiling students for the race. And the team

closest to their guestimate time is the winner,” added Lees. “The short race takes place in the morning and you have the rest of the day to enjoy the mountain experience.” For more information contact Lees at 250-202-1513, e-mail: twinsport@shaw.ca or Brian Gorman at 250218-6335, e-mail: givebrianahug@gmail.com.

Dental Care for the Whole Family

On Saturday Jan. 25, the Whalers made it to Port Alberni despite the foggy roads and were greeted with a much younger and faster host. Hockey being the fastest growing sport in Canada for women, it is unusual to find many experienced players in their midthirties and up. Most “older” ladies joined hockey in their adult life and face the continual challenge of learning this new sport. The Whalers presented a much higher age average than the fresh out of high school Alberni team. The experience, skills and fitness demonstrated by the Whalers’ counterparts was impressive if not at times

overwhelming, but at least the intensity level by both teams was definitely a good match. The Whalers were able to minimize the damages with a constant effort  by all their players. Netminder Megan Canning kept the team in the game from the drop of the puck in the first period until the much-needed

buzzer at the end of the game. She blocked, caught, dove, flopped and got up again, frustrating the opposition to no end! The final score was an acceptable 2-1 for Alberni. The Whalers host a rematch with Alberni on Saturday, Feb. 1. Puck drop 7 p.m. at Sports Centre #1. – Courtenay Whalers

The Comox Legion is hosting a Ladies Open Darts Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 15. There will be a doubles and a singles event. Entry fee is $10 per player per event. Doubles start at 10 a.m. with singles to follow.

There will be prizes for high score and high out on the day. Lunch will be available. Preregister at the bar, or you can phone (250339-9592) or e-mail (dcwillington@gmail. com) your intent to participate. – Comox Legion

Kenneth Camroux Cooke

March 19,1921 - January 15, 2014

:PVS$PNNVOJUZ  :PVS$MBTTJmFET 

Ken Cooke was born in Langham, Saskatchewan, to Stella and Heber Cooke. The family moved to Courtenay, BC in 1922 when Mr. Cooke opened his Rexall drugstore on Union St. (now 5th St.). Ken attended Courtenay Elementary school and was in the 14 boys choir at St. John’s Anglican church. He attended high school at Brentwood College and in 1936 began a 4-year apprenticeship in Victoria to become a journeyman carpenter. His graduation project was to design and build a house for his parents in Comox, where his parents retired in 1941. The house still stands, on Ellis Street. Ken joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1942. At the end of World War II he returned to the construction industry and worked on the building of the original BC Hydro power station at Elk Falls. After two years he re-enlisted in the Canadian Navy, and as a Chief Petty Officer shipwright, served as an instructor in Halifax, did tours of duty in the Pacific and the Orient, and retired after 20 years, in 1970. After working for two years in the construction industry around the Comox Valley, Ken joined the crew of the ComoxPowell River ferry for two years. Then the call of a warm climate led him and his wife Marion, to Mesa, Arizona, where they resided for 30 years, while Ken was employed as builder and facilities manager for the major ambulance company in Phoenix. He retired in 2002 and they settled at the Springs of East Mesa retirement center where he made many friends. His wife, Marion, passed away in 2006. Ken was predeceased by his first wife Audrey and their daughter Barbara, by his second wife Marion, by his older brother Ranson, by his niece Jill and her son Matthew. He is survived by his younger brother Norman, his grandson David Dodd (Dina), his grand daughter Yvonne Bishop (Rob), his nephews William Cooke and Dale Cooke (Judy) and niece Maida Goff (Tom), great grand children and great nephews and nieces. He was an easy going likeable guy who loved family gatherings. He will be particularly missed by his companion of the last five years, Vena Chesley. Ken’s favourite hobby was building and sailing wooden models of famous sailing vessels and navy ships. Sail on in peace, dear Ken. We love you and miss you.

Patricia Irene Christie It is with heavy heart and great sadness that I announce the passing of Patricia Irene Christie who lost her 2 year battle with cancer on January 22nd. She was the beloved wife of husband David for 47 years and devoted mother to her 3 children daughter, Diane and sons, Micheal and James. She was a very special grandmother who cherished all of her family members, brothers Kevin and Mark, and her many friends. Patricia was predeceased by her parents Frank and Betty Connolly, and brother Barrie. Patricia was born in England and came to Canada as a very young child. She spent her growing up years travelling throughout Canada and overseas with her CF parents as a dependent. She and Dave met in Chatham, NB and were married in Comox and as a Forces wife, continued to travel overseas and all over Canada making many friends at the various postings they stayed at. After Dave retired in Comox she enjoyed travelling with their trailer to campgrounds in the US and Canada. One of her favourite places to camp was at the CFB TeePee park campground. She enjoyed the beach, walking around the perimeter road and feeding the many rabbits there. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

Lawrence David Brune May 19, 1919 – January 23, 2014 Lawrence (Lofty) Brune passed away peacefully in his sleep at home on the afternoon of January 23, 2014. He left this world the way he had said he wanted to go, sitting in the kitchen looking out at the mountains. Left to mourn his passing is his wife (Eloise), 3 children (Karl, Larry and Dee), 7 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, greatgreat-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends. Dad was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He joined the RCAF in 1941, trained as a pilot and was stationed in England from 1943 to 1945 flying patrols for U-boats in the North Atlantic. He briefly left the air-force at the end of the war, working in a logging camp on Vancouver Island, before rejoining the air-force in 1946 and serving until retirement in 1964. Lawrence and Eloise moved to the Comox Valley in 1965 where Dad worked at various jobs including installing furnaces, working at the copper mine at Mt Washington and driving taxi in Campbell River, before getting a job as a deckhand on the (at that time) Kelsey Bay to Prince Rupert ferry. He moved into the engine room, began training as a Marine Engineer and eventually became the chief engineer on the Comox to Powell River ferry route before retiring from his second career. His final employment was for a season in the Arctic on a dredger building islands for oil rigs before officially retiring for good in the early 1980s.

Dad spent his retirement years enjoying his hobbies on the small farm he and Eloise bought in 1965. He liked to tinker with machinery, play his accordion and host parties. Dad loved music (he taught himself to play several instruments, his favorite being the accordion), and was part of a music group well into his 80s that went and played in retirement homes. He was also fond of jokes, good food and good wine. Dad had a keen intellect and was an avid reader. He had an interest in mathematics and was learning calculus up until a few months before his death. He also had a particularly good memory for off-colour songs and poems from time spent during the war in English pubs.

Bob loved camping, gardening, raising chickens and pigeons, fishing, hunting, golf and skiing.  He was very generous with his stained glass creations such as lamps, ornaments and designs making sure he made something for everyone.  He also had a small saw hammering/filing business where he met many friends.

With the upcoming winter season, please note the following regarding: During snowfall and ice events, the Town of Comox will make every effort to provide for the reasonably safe movement of vehicular and pedestrian trafďŹ c. As with all services provided by the Town of Comox, snow and ice control is limited by staff, equipment and budget restrictions. In keeping with Town Policy 4037R, the Town of Comox will proceed with the ploughing of roads upon accumulation of 100 mm of snow or when lesser accumulations have resulted in dangerous conditions. This policy grants priority to the various routes in the following order: 1. Arterial Roads 2. Collector Roads 3. Local Roads 4. Cul-de-sacs 5. Lanes In addition to the above, priority is also given to the routes serving public facilities including the Fire Hall, St. Joseph’s Hospital, Municipal Hall, School Zones, Bus Routes and the Comox Recreation Centre. Snow removal and de-icing from sidewalks shall be limited to sidewalks along arterial and major collector roads, with ďŹ rst priority given to opening one side only. Municipal staff will also endeavour to clear snow from sidewalks fronting properties owned by the Town of Comox, while removal of snow from sidewalks in commercial zones remains the responsibility of the individual property owners. Ploughing of snow will result in a windrow of snow across private driveways and business accesses. The Town of Comox regrets this; however, we simply do not have the resources to clear these windrows from individual driveways. During snowfall events, the Town of Comox would offer the following HELPFUL HINTS: 1. Avoid depositing snow removed from driveways, sidewalks and parking areas onto the adjacent roadway. In most cases the Town of Comox will have little choice but to redirect it back into the area from which it came. 2. Remove all parked vehicles from the streets until such time as ploughing has been completed. 3. Ensure your vehicle is equipped with good snow tires and add additional weight if required. 4. Allow for additional travel time between home and work, drive slowly and stay well back from the trafďŹ c in front of you. 5. Do not attempt to pass snow ploughs or sand trucks. 6. Please assist the Town in reducing ooding problems by clearing snow and debris away from and around catch basins. 7. The Town of Comox encourages everyone to assist the elderly and inďŹ rmed with removal of snow from sidewalks and driveways.

New clinic employs modern approach

New chiropractor Dr. Clay Ward has opened a health-care clinic in Courtenay dubbed Dynamic Spine, Sport & Wellness. “We focus on pain, prevention and performance,” says Ward. “Function is the foundation of our care – whether it be a repetitive strain injury from work, an ICBC claimant recovering from an auto accident, or an elite athlete training for the Olympics, our focus is the same — to help improve how the body functions.” As a modern chiropractor, Ward takes a functional approach to assess, diagnose and manage injuries not only of the spine but also for any joint or muscle in the body. With the clinic also offering massage therapy and exercise rehabilitation, many aspects of care are addressed. “Finding the right treatment at the right time is critical for any injury cycle or for injury prevention,” says Ward. Modern chiropractors are no longer just back specialists. “By addressing problems in the joints and muscles, then developing appropriate exercises to restore function, care is more efficient and effective than ever before.” However, not every problem is an easy fix, Ward says.

“Many conditions are the result of years of microtrauma, poor

Conditions treated range from back or neck pain to headache and extremity pain to repetitive strain disorders from work, and overuse injuries from sports training and competition. For this reason, Ward uses various cutting edge soft tissue techniques and traditional chiropractic treatment to help patients. Intensive post-graduate training provides Ward with the top training in Canada for treatment and rehabilitation for injuries of both the spine and extremities. “Quality of care is improved by utilizing what has worked in the past and merging it with the best soft tissue techniques and modalities that we now have.” Ward has a Doctor of Chiropractic from the University of Western States in Portland, Ore. After practising four years in Alberta and Victoria, Ward and his wife Natalie moved to the Comox Valley, where she grew up. He recently represented the Valley at the Xterra World Championships this past year in Maui, HI. Ward is also involved with the Comox Valley Road Runners and Triathlon Club, and is the team chiropractor for the Vancouver Island Performance Youth Racing Squad. Dynamic Spine, Sport & Wellness is located at Suite 1021532 Cliffe Ave. along the Riverway Trail. www.dynamicspinesportwellness.com.

A problem small firms can help fix If the federal government wants to grow the economy and get job numbers back on track, it need look no further than solutions recommended by the small business community. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business presented its top prebudget priorities in a meeting with federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty.  “The latest job numbers show how fragile our economy continues to be,” said CFIB president Dan Kelly. “Small business can be a big part of the solution, but needs government to help create the right environment for growth.” Key budget priorities for small business include:  Small business tax rate: lower the rate from 11 to nine per cent over time, starting with a 0.5 per cent decrease in 2014. EI hiring and training credit: recognize the costs of on-thejob training by small business by retaining the Hiring Credit.

Public sector pensions: end the bridge benefit and phase-out early retirement. “CFIB began our meeting by thanking Flaherty for his government’s leadership in pushing back against plans to hike Canada Pension Plan and Quebec Pension Plan premiums,” Kelly said. “We asked him to consider lowering the small business tax rate and keeping the EI credit to serve as direct incentives to growth and hiring.”           In addition to keeping the focus on eliminating the deficit by 2015 by restraint on public sector compensation, benefits and pensions, CFIB asked Flaherty for early help to address rapidly rising credit card processing fees for merchants and consumers.  During CFIB’s Red Tape Awareness Week last week, Kelly shared with Flaherty ways to reduce the regulatory burden on small firms as a lowcost way to stimulate the economy and create jobs.

Do oil and water mix?

The debate about oil pipelines and supertankers in this province is entering a significant new phase. In its first report, a B.C.-Alberta government working group on energy development recommends increasing “the public’s energy literacy on oil transportation, production and impacts on daily life.” Since the group was formed by Premier Alison Redford, whose province’s economy runs on oil, and Christy Clark, whose province has serious economic challenges, expect the group to favour oil and gas development. As reported by Black Press B.C. legislature reporter Tom Fletcher, the report notes a “disconnect between public perception and the reality” of the importance of oil and gas to the Canadian economy. There’s truth to this. While many people understand the devastating effects of an oil spill, the economic upside is a case industry and government still have to truly make. For starters, the industry is the largest contributor to Canada’s balance of trade. Canada is losing an estimated $50 million a day in potential revenue due to lack of access to oil customers outside the U.S., adds the report. It further urges a better effort to educate people in communities, First Nations and schools about the upside of the industry to counter “misinformation on numerous fronts.” Speaking of which, the report paints a rosy picture of oil spill response off the B.C. coast in spite of a B.C. government study showing little capacity to recover crude oil spilled off the North Coast. As usual in a battle for our hearts and minds with so much at stake, expect misinformation from both sides. To make the best possible decision, though, in a referendum or an election that will decide the matter, we should educate ourselves. At the heart of this is weighing the economic benefits against inevitable environmental catastrophe. If oil and gas exploration doesn’t happen, we might have to make some lifestyle changes. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Record Question of the Week

This week: Fifty per cent of respondents so far say they will miss the Comox Valley Highland Games. The Games, on the Victoria Day long weekend, have been cancelled. Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord.com and vote on the mainpage. The story of seven-year-old Sam Sterk, who has raised almost $1,400 to train therapy dogs, should inspire people much older than him.

Coun. Kate Greening is trying to represent the people of Cumberland well, but nitpicking and opposing everything is not constructive.

Airport ‘travesty’ grinding on

Dear editor, I vigorously support Carol Arnold’s letter (Record, Jan. 23) regarding trees blocking flights. She clearly articulated her personal travails involving flight delays and cancellations. I have experienced the same delays and cancellations (which lately have been almost daily) and frequently observed the frustration of friends and family who must commute by air to jobs or make connecting flights for business reasons or vacation. The current long, drawnout litigation process may be the usual recourse, but surely there must be a way to expedite resolution for this most vexing of issues that holds our entire community hostage. To suggest otherwise is to admit our system is dysfunctional and broken. The issue is bizarre. A property owner bordering the landing and takeoff corridor at Comox airport has some tall trees on his/her property. Said property owner refuses to allow removal or topping of these trees, apparently citing concern for nesting birds, and has tied the matter up in prolonged litigation for several years. The tall trees raise minimum landing height restrictions by several hundred feet in accordance with Transport Canada regulations. This means that

service such as WestJet with its regular domestic and international flights to Comox must frequently delay, cancel or divert their flights to where landing minimums are not affected by tall trees.  Friends who work at the airport inform me there is profound

The current long, ❝ drawn-out litigation

process may be the usual recourse, but surely there must be a way to expedite resolution for this most vexing of issues that holds our entire community hostage.

Win Hunter

concern that if this debacle is not soon resolved, the Comox Valley may lose WestJet and other carriers as early as next fall. This may please the property owner and handful of supporters who are responsible for this travesty, but it is already causing untold hardship for the hundreds of North Islanders who are inconvenienced each day by delayed or cancelled flights. All of this to protect a few birds, which if displaced will obviously find nesting places

elsewhere. The cost in lost wages, missed vacations and cancelled trips is incalculable and surely outweighs such environmental concerns (if indeed that is the issue).  We must blame not just the behaviour of whomever is holding the community hostage in the courts, we must also blame our federal government and airport authority for allowing this travesty to continue unresolved. The federal government and local authority have stood back and allowed the issue to grind on in the courts. Such complacency and inaction is unacceptable when thousands of people representing not only the Comox Valley, but communities north and south, may lose their domestic and international air service that has taken many years and hundreds of millions of dollars to build. Our leaders such as our MP John Duncan need to be proactively seeking resolution by means of expropriation, ministerial executive order or whatever means necessary. As a local Conservative supporter, I need to publicly hear from my member of Parliament regarding this issue. Do you condemn this situation, Mr. Duncan, and what are you doing about it?  Win Hunter, Area B

Columnist sampling tailing ponds? Dear editor, Re: Old man, take a look at your facts (B.C. Views, Jan. 22). Tom Fletcher should stop taking Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver’s advice. Drinking from tailings ponds does not appear to be bringing any clarity to his argument. The fact that similar environmental destruction exists in the U.S. means Canadians should

shut up and ignore what goes on in our country? Would Fletcher at least concede that any industrial development of this size comes at a significant cost to the environment? I agree that the oilsands are extremely important to the Canadian economy and provide thousands of high-paying jobs to people across this country, but surely there’s room for a balanced discussion.

Perhaps we could start somewhere between shutting it down as Neil Young would prefer or expanding it as fast as humanly possible, the clear choice of the present federal and Alberta governments. If Young’s comments lead to discussions at dinner tables across this country then he did us all a great service. Bob Tanner, Campbell River

Federal government treatment of veterans stinks Dear editor, Just thought I’d share my opinion on the lack of services to military personnel and veterans. It stinks on ice. The closure of the Veterans Affairs offices will have a direct impact on services to veterans. The workers at Veteran Affairs are specialists. The people at Service Canada are generalists. It isn’t as if Veteran Affairs workers are being sent to the Service Canada offices, as in co-locating. Mr. Harper may want us to believe this is a cost-cutting measure but it is not unreasonable to conclude this is

You don’t start out trying to ‘save ❝ money’ by harming those who have

served this country well. They ought to be afforded our respect and services.

❞ E.A. Foster

part of the Conservatives’ continued attack on federal government workers. Veterans simply got in the way. We have all heard of the reports how veterans are being treated, especially those who complained about their treatment. Their files were viewed by every idiot who wanted a look at them. They were referred to as troublemakers. There simply

hasn’t been sufficient support for veterans. I understand it costs money. However, as a taxpayer, I’m willing to pay for it. If the government can’t afford services to veterans, then raise taxes. Now that may cause shrieks and gnashing of teeth amongst the Conservatives’ corporate friends, but each time the Conservatives lower taxes, they are in fact impoverishing the government.

Hence the lack of money for veterans and the huge deficit. The military simply isn’t doing enough for those currently in either. Any organization which has 10 people kill themselves in two months has a problem. Hiding from it or saying they didn’t ask for help is ridiculous. There have been previous suicides. It isn’t new. What is new, with the current government, is the lack of caring by the Conservatives. They send people into wars. When they come home, broken, they are of no longer any use to the Conservatives, so they

are cut adrift. All Conservative MPs will collect pensions much larger than former military personnel who fought in wars they sent them into. Where is the justice in that? You don’t start out trying to “save money” by harming those who have served this country well. They ought to be afforded our respect and services. No one returns from a war undamaged. Some are simply better at dealing with it. The Conservatives have tried to portray themselves as supportive of the military, but the Conservative actions leave a great deal to be desired.

We need real dollars from resources

Dear editor, The issue of moving Raven Coal to and through Port Alberni onto ships bound for overseas market is being raised again. We have the resource and can market it to power plants

and factories in the Orient. Are we going to accommodate economic wealth development for the greater good or do we remain subject to the minority pressure spreading fear of the negative difficul-

ties of the proposed coal movement? We need real dollars from the resource economy. We need good-paying jobs either trained or starter positions for our youth. Continually being negative to develop-

ment stifles activity and community life. Road safety comes from good drivers and not from irresponsible timed travellers speeding over the highways. Traffic congestion can be mitigated by considerate truckers, patient

Cruel, barbaric act not hunting

Dear editor, I recently came across “the one that got away” in Henry Bay on the north end of Denman Island. It was struggling to make its way back to the water. At first glance I thought it had a broken leg but as I

picked it up to help it, the damage was far worse. This small duck fit in the palm of my hand and had severe damage done to its left side that included the damage to its leg, wing and exposed rib cage where a firearm had

left a hole big enough for a pencil to fit in. I was amazed it was still alive and knew it wouldn’t be for much longer as I gently placed it back in the ocean. Is this really considered “hunting” when a boatload of “men”

Dear editor, Nova Scotia’s Health Minister Leo Glavine recently announced that his province will develop a strategy to prepare for a quickly growing concern — dementia. As a person living with dementia (I was diagnosed in 2008 at age 57), I am encouraged by Nova Scotia’s news. I am also pleased by the attention the

disease is getting here in B.C. Premier Clark’s recent comments about her personal connection to dementia have started a valuable discussion in our province. The premier’s support is particularly critical as provincial and territorial premiers prepare to discuss dementia at the Council of the Federation meetings this August.

The need for a comprehensive, funded dementia plan, which supports people with dementia and their families, is urgent. Please join me in spreading awareness about the need for B.C.’s own dementia plan. Jim Mann Editor’s note: Jim Mann is a volunteer board member for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Dementia in B.C. news

hide behind a driftwood shelter and wait for the ducks to come close enough to blast them out of existence? Why? Is this for food or the perverted pleasure of being able to destroy life in such an incredibly violent way. This is not “sport,” this is not “hunting;” this is cruel and barbaric. Until this type of “sport” is recognized for what it is and stopped, and “hunters” continue to have an overwhelming desire to kill things they don’t intend on eating, I hope they will at least kill their prey outright to prevent unnecessary suffering. Have a little compassion- if you’re at all capable and if not, seek help from a mental health professional! Edina Johnston, Denman Island

The former airline operations specialist has served as a director since September 2012.

Comox vet goes on road

On Feb. 5, Dr. David MacDonald of Comox Valley Animal Hospital, and Newbark Canine Rescue & Rehoming Society will travel to Gold River. While there, they will offer no-charge spays and neuters at Tsaxana Reserve in a mobile surgery unit.  Up to 20 surgeries can be done in a day, which should accommodate all owned dogs on the small reserve. Newbark will also accept any dogs that aren’t wanted, and will rehome them.  It will also provide basic DA2PP Vaccine, Drontil and Revolution at no charge, in hopes that dog owners continue a regular basic health-care routine. Dog food, recovery blankets and large crates are much-needed donation items. If you would like to donate funds so that initiatives like this can happen again, Newbark Rescue’s account is open for deposits at Comox Valley Animal Hospital, or Coastal Community Credit Union.  — Newbark Canine Rescue & Rehoming Society
