Parking problem is a ‘good problem’

2x3.5 Congratulations Ashley and Gerry Wedding

Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Downtown parking wasn’t an issue three years ago. A world-wide recession and the permanent closure of the city’s biggest employer – Elk Falls mill – resulted in hard economic times for Campbell River. “I remember looking out and seeing those three buildings vacant. Now look at them,” points out Debra Cunningham, owner of Quay West Kitchen and Cater-

Rob and Kathy Kay, along with Dean Burry, are please to announce the upcoming wedding of their children, Ashley and Gerry. Wedding to take place July 12, 2014.

A downtown driver searches for an open parking space Wednesday afternoon in front of Robert Ostler Park.

ing. Two fitness gyms and a health office now occupy those buildings just across the road, other new businesses have moved in nearby, and parking spaces are hard to come by during the weekdays. “I’m not complaining. I think the fact that Campbell River has a downtown parking problem is a good thing,” says Cunningham. Construction is booming in downtown Campbell River and with two major projects – the new hospital and the John Hart Generating Station replacement – due to begin this year, there will be hundreds of new workers living in the city

for at least the next five years. In other words, parking is expected to be tight. “People have voiced their concerns over the state of downtown parking, and we recognize it’s a good thing,” says Ryan Phillips, chair of the Downtown Business Improvement Area. At the Quay West restaurant, the public parking lot in front of Robert Ostler Park is jammed through the daytime and the roadside spaces are filled too. Finding a free space can take some time and a few loops around the lot, but the other problem is it’s only a two-hour maximum for parking. As a result, says Cun-

ningham, she and several other workers in the Pier Street area do the “parking shuffle” every couple hours or risk getting a ticket for staying longer. “It affects the continuity of your day because you know you have to move your car in two hours…I’m sure it affects every business,” says Cunningham, who wonders what it will be like in the summer when the city closes the parking lot for big events like Canada Day and the Pink Salmon Festival. Phillips offers another point of view. He works across the street from the Tyee Plaza which has hundreds of parking spaces. But those too are

becoming quite full and Phillips says it could pose a problem for plaza businesses if employees from elsewhere park their vehicles there all day. “It’s not necessarily fair to the businesses in the Tyee plaza,” he says. “I don’t fully agree that you need to park right in front of the business where you plan on shopping. We want to encourage people to get out and walk, and support all the downtown businesses.” Phillips said the Downtown BIA has talked with the city about the issue and suggested it step up bylaw enforcement. And the city is expected to do just that as it budgeted for a new part-time bylaw enforcement officer to be hired this year. Cunningham has another suggestion. She thinks the city can do a better job of advertising where public parking spaces are and the time limits for each. As well, Quay West encourages employees to walk or ride their bikes to work, and Cunningham bought a rack to park the bicycles. “If they walk or bike you’re up for an award which is usually a luncheon,” says Cunningham as she looks out the comings and goings on a busy Wednesday morning. “Look at it out there, it looks like a city! I love downtown.”

SRD to look at arena expansion KRISTEN DOUGLAS


The Strathcona Regional District intends to spend $75,000 on a study to identify potential improvements, such as arena upgrades and a new wellness centre, for Strathcona Gardens. Strathcona Gardens Commissioners approved the study for the 2014 budget at its Jan. 30 meeting. The study was prompted by last month’s review of an arena evaluation study that was done in the fall of 2004. T h at s t u d y p r o vided the commission with three options for increasing seating at Rod Brind’Amour Arena – two of which involve renovating the existing arena and one which recommends building a new arena at Strathcona Gardens. The study also

presented the commission with conceptual drawings for a wellness centre to be build beside the swimming pool. Yves Bienvenu, Strathcona Gardens manager of facilities, said that regional district staff and the commissioners recently reviewed the three arena planning options and the wellness centre option but that an in-depth study is required to determine the most appropriate course of action. “The commission was taken on a facility tour hosted by the operations manager which provided a visual perspective of the plans,” Bienvenu wrote in a report to the commission. “Upon reviewing the existing plans and studies, it was determined that a new facility needs assessment should be conducted in order to plan effectively

Ferry cuts: Sailing trade-offs on specific times possible

Continued from Pg. 1

machines on some ships ser ving BC Ferries’ major routes, with revenues directed towards reducing the pressure on future fare increases. Stone said while it was not an easy decision to cut service, it was a necessary one. “We are making these tough decisions today in the interest of the taxpayers of B.C., and for the future of the coastal ferry

service and the communities they serve,” Stone said in a release. “Better alignment of service levels to the demand, while protecting basic levels of service, is necessary to ensure a coastal ferry service that’s affordable, efficient and sustainable for future generations.” The proposal to cut certain sailings on BC Ferries’ minor routes has not been a popular one with residents who live in

coastal communities and rely on the ferry system. Public consultation meetings through November and December, in which more than 3,700 people in affected communities participated, generated mostly negative feedback. At Quadra’s Island’s public session on Dec. 9, BC Ferries and provincial government representatives got an earful. Jim Abram, Quadra

Island director for the regional district, said the government is “killing communities” and “insulting” islanders. “The plan’s a joke, it’s an insult to our intelligence and it’s a crime against our people,” Abram said at the December meeting. “We will continue to shuffle the deck chairs on the Titanic while the ship is sinking. We will not allow our community to go down with the ship.

We had to come, we had to be here and tell you you’re wrong.” Others at the meeting were concerned that BC Ferries’ proposal to cut the last sailing leaving both Campbell River and Quadra Island would kill any extracurriculars for Quadra Islanders who play sports, attend workshops or shows, or eat out in Campbell River during the evenings. Stone said the govern-

ment has reviewed the public engagement summary report – a record of comments from the public meetings – and is directing BC Ferries to meet with affected community representatives to select sailing cuts based on input received during the public sessions. Stone said that could mean that on some routes there may be opportunities to eliminate mid-day sailings instead of early

morning or late evening sailings. The final schedules will be made public by the end of March. North Island MLA Claire Trevena, the NDP’s transportation critic, also condemned the cutbacks, “Today, the B.C. Liberals have proven that their so-called consultations with coastal communities were just window dressing on a done deal.”

Our View

New liquor rules will add responsibility Big changes are afoot in the administration of liquor in this province. And while most of the changes mark a shift toward treating adults as adults, among those who choose to drink, not everyone We say: The exhibits adult behaviour where the consumption of alcohol is concerned. operators of Part of the proposed changes include events will have eliminating beer gardens, the penned to police drinkers off areas at public events that separate “family” areas from those where carded adults may purchase and drink alcohol. On the surface, the idea of allowing people who may be attending events with underage family members to enjoy

their beverages as a family makes sense. We’d like to think that people who take their young relatives to an event aren’t going to over-consume alcohol in their presence. But the potential for problems doesn’t lie with the majority of people who will obey the law, behave themselves and ensure that only adults in their group partake in alcoholic beverages. It’s with the small minority who choose to flout the rules, get drunk and obnoxious in a “family” area and perhaps worse, buy alcohol for underaged drinkers. Promoters of music festivals and other similar largecrowd events have applauded the proposed changes, saying they will bring B.C. into the 21st century when it comes to treating people with respect and allowing them

to make the right choices. But what about festival goers who don’t make the right choices? Attendees will need to be watched closely as new rules are phased in. Based on past experience, we expect the province to shift that task onto liquor licensees, in this case, the people who stage community events. Will those organizations, many of which operate largely on a volunteer basis, have the resources or the expertise to take on the role of ensuring liquor doesn’t fall into the hands of minors? Local organizers have shown they can manage the task under the old system. What’s clear is these issues will need to be addressed before the province puts pen to paper and creates new regulations. – Black Press


Let them log it and sell it

The article regarding Timberwest’s threat to log and then sell their land has me in stitches. What a surprise. What would they do if we don’t tax them – log it and sell when convenient and most profitable? So the end result will be the same. The only difference would be when. Tax them as much as is a provincial average. Let them log it and sell it. We can only get a better owner since this company has no concern for anything other than their bottom line. So make their bottom a little lower. Corporate bums as I see it. Frans Hoogeveen Campbell River

Fletcher should move to Fort McMurray

Re: Old man, take a look at your facts (B.C. Views, Jan. 22) Well, now Tom Fletcher has done it. He has annoyed, angered, baffled and bored us over the years with his columns. However, to be so condescending and rude about Neil Young’s involvement in the anti-oilsands controversy made me respond. How does he decide which experts’ findings on the environment he judges to be the truth – the whole truth? May I make a suggestion: Fletcher should move to Fort McMurray. Enjoy the scenery! And after looking at his picture, who is calling whom an old man? Heidi Bumann Surrey

Batman propels comic ‘geek’ to Hollywood fame

Paul Rudan No, really

The coolest sweatshirt I ever owned no longer fits. Truth is, it’s long-gone and I don’t recall wearing it. But a single photograph attests to its existence. There I am, perhaps three years old, standing on the front porch of the family home. I’m wearing jeans, a red ball cap with toy binoculars around my neck, and a soft, white, cotton sweatshirt. And the best thing about it is the bold, black Batman logo emblazoned across the chest. Super-cool. Later, as a teenager and a Batman fan, I searched high and low for the same sweatshirt, but was foiled time and time again by those jokers working in the Chinese T-shirt factories. Still haven’t found it, but on Tuesday night I considered nagging Michael

Uslan to see if he had a spare Batman sweatshirt or hoodie floating about in the back of his closet. But the line-up of fellow Batman fans was long in the Tidemark Theatre lobby as Uslan took the time to sign each and every autograph, and to pose for photos with fans as well. As the producer of the mega-successful Batman series of films, Uslan could easily blow Campbell River’s entire annual city budget in a couple afternoons on the set of his next big film. He could also be eating caviar sprinkled with gold leaf in some tropical paradise, but somehow I don’t think that’s his preferred style. Instead, Uslan – multimillionaire, Hollywood juggernaut – is a down-to-earth family guy, who comes from humble roots and clearly enjoys

sharing his passion with others. And that passion is comic books. Even at 61, the youthful-looking Uslan retains a child-like enthusiasm for comics. This quality, combined with a neverever-quit attitude, and a visionary sense for what entertains movie patrons, has propelled him to the top. It also helps when your movies and the related spinoff products generate billions of dollars for the corporate overlords. But money isn’t the prime motivator for this self-admitted comic geek who accumulated 30,000 comic books in his New Jersey garage by the time he was a teen. He’s motivated by his passion, to seize opportunities and take risks, to keep evolving in a constantly changing world, and to rely on yourself to enable change.

It’s that last trait which is very Batman like. The appeal of the Caped Crusader, says Uslan, is he has no super powers like Superman or the X-Men. He’s just a regular human being – albeit a rich one – who’s motivated by the death of his parents to fight criminals in a crime-ridden city. That speaks to a lot of people, says Uslan, who spent 10 years hearing “no” as he pitched the Batman film. It was a treat to hear Uslan and see Batman again. It still holds up! Now about that sweatshirt... vvv Why does super-famous Hollywood producer come to Campbell River? Well, you can thank the super-connected Joan Miller of INfilm who invited him here.

Volunteer Centre on the move

2x3 ICBC & Injuryand Claims Frame Co • Free initial consultation


City hall will be shuffling the deck in a move that will see the Volunteer Centre re-located as well as the city’s technology department. The Volunteer Centre will be moved across the street to an unoccupied space in the Enterprise Centre which faces Alder Street while the information technology (IT) department will take over the Volunteer Centre’s space in the basement of city hall.

The move will cost the city $82,000 with $24,000 of that to be spent on renovating the Enterprise Centre space with new painting, carpeting, signage, a more welcoming back entrance and hallway, and lighting, such as skylights. The money will come from the city’s facilities reserve. Coun. Larry Samson said the volunteers are looking forward to the 75 per cent increase in space that comes with the move.

“In talking to them, they are acceptable to this move and they are excited somewhat,” Samson said. The re-location is necessary because of cramped quarters in city hall. Currently, the IT department shares a quadrant with the finance department which means 22 staff are occupying the same area – the highest concentration in any quadrant of city hall. Jason Decksheimer, the city’s asset management supervisor, said having the IT and finance department in a shared space has also presented security concerns. “Due to the nature of the IT department’s workload and the continual coming and going of staff,

Council, with the exception of Mayor Wa l t e r J a k e w a y, approved the move. Following the vote, Samson put forward a motion to allocate $5,000 from city council’s contingency fund to the Volunteer Centre and the Community Arts Council to incorporate public art into the new Volunteer Centre space. “As you come down Alder Street you see a brown, beige industrial style building with metal sheeting on the side,” Samson said. “And I think it’s important that this building be welcoming from the outside as well as the inside and I think nothing says that better than public art.” Council agreed and approved the public art along with the move.




contractors and others to their office through the finance department offices, finance staff are not able to maintain the security of the area as it relates to financial files, cash and cash instruments, and cheque processing,” said Decksheimer in a report to council, adding there is also a “reduced ability to have confidential or semi-private discussions or phone calls.” Decksheimer said it was discussed to move IT to the Enterprise Centre instead of the Volunteer Centre, however, it was determined that it would be difficult to move computers and technology between the two buildings, plus most of the department’s internal clients work in city hall which would require continual trips back and forth.

that had been on the same beach for a week. It was reported as “looking” sick, but was still able to fly. When sending out a rescue team, we always put the team’s safety first and emphasize that we cannot chase an eagle if it can fly. When we inquired further it turned out that the eagle was being fed by people who were approaching within a few feet to take photos of the bird. Once a bird is unable to fly, capture is easier but sometimes a live trap has to be used to prevent further stress and damage to the eagle. Eagles are opportunistic feeders; they are also top of the local avian food chain. There is always a chance that one or two hapless birds will come along and present them with a free meal. That brings me to another somewhat disturbing incident which includes animal cruelty involving a sea gull and a small group of kids. This incident was reported and witnessed by some bystanders. For reasons known only to them, the kids were throwing rocks at the

sea gull. Unfortunately for the gull, one rock hit its intended target. The gull provided an unexpected meal when it landed in the water right by the eagle. Please take the time with your children to reinforce how to behave around wild life and treat it with respect. Fortunately this kind of act of cruelty does not happen too often. As our urban areas expand, more buildings are encroaching on wildlife habitats resulting in more injuries

and fatalities due to the loss of safe habitats. One of the necessities of urban expansion is the increased need for power but the lines that conduct the power can have a huge impact on some birds. Fortunately, BC Hydro is a great supporter of wildlife management. They try to make the power lines more visible in areas where large groups of birds congregate. Last week we picked up the remains of an 11.8 kilogram trumpeter swan that probably mis-

judged the power line due to the heavy fog. It had not gained the necessary altitude to miss the line. It was instantly electrocuted and also sustained severe neck injuries along with badly singed feathers on its body and wings. Campbell River has a similar problem with eagles flying from perch trees to the ocean. In addition, they must cross many busy roads. Accidents are not always preventable as was the case with a bird being in the wrong place

at the wrong time. Barn owls are welcomed by the local farmers as they are great “ratters” and control the rodent population in the barns. Unfortunately for one roosting barn owl, the farmer was power washing some equipment in the barn which spooked the owl. In its panic to hide again, the owl became disoriented. Misjudging its escape route, the owl to hit a wall which resulted in fatal injuries. Some accidents are not preventable, just bad luck. These incidents have made us more determined to reach as many people as we can through education as there are still so many people that do not understand how a simple action can prove to be life threatening to wildlife. I witnessed some well meaning people feeding chickadees and nuthatches with “frosted cinnamon buns” which only provide empty calories and constipation. If you must help the songbirds, please feed them their natural food.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Honda knows how to make a good, solid car—and for 2014—things just got a little more interesting. Zack Spencer

Visit the 2014 Honda Civic gallery at

From rather ordinary to rather extraordinary Tampa, Florida – Being the best at something is an achievement, and doing it repeatedly is impressive. The Honda Civic’s 16-year streak as the best selling passenger car in Canada is nothing short of astounding. For the introduction the 2014 Civic, Honda chose usually sunny and hot Tampa, to introduce their latest update. It was sunny but anything from hot, with overnight temperatures near freezing. Honda has been improving the Civic continuously since the 7th generation model was introduced as a 2012 model. Last year, for 2013, they updated the styling, handling and interior of the 2013 model and now for 2014 they are at it again. Looks The styling focus for 2014 is on the coupe. Roughly 15 per cent of all Civics are sold as a coupe, the most dominant player in the small coupe market. Last year, this sedan received updates to the front and rear styling to help make it look more upscale and sophisticated, and this year the coupe gets a similar update to the front and back, but the changes are meant to provide a sportier look with a bit more aggression. The most aggressive version of both

addition, the front seats are very supportive and the steering wheel is low and small for a racy feel. What is new for both the sedan and this coupe is the introduction of Display Audio system that is available From fuel on the EX and Touring economy to reliability, models. This is a large iPad-like touch-screen resale value, cost design that lets the driver of ownership and access many functions Inside sportiness the 2014 from the radio to apps One of the reasons that Honda Civic is a good that piggyback off your the Civic is the best iPhone. (No Android apps selling car in Canada is choice yet but they are working the practical, yet sporty Zack Spencer on this.) This taps into the interior in both the sedan power of your phone, in and coupe. Many people, the big screen, with full including me, didn’t integration. I liked the speed and funcinitially like the split dash with the tion of the design but really missed a speedometer on the top and the tarotary dial to adjust the volume over a chometer on the bottom, but over time touch screen volume design. Yes, there this design has proven to be a winner. is a volume control on the steering I was wrong. The split design now wheel but one next to the radio would incorporates more information to see complete the package. without having to take your eyes off the road. The trip computer and other Drive functions like radio station information Honda has made one small change are just below the front window. In and one big change to help with fuel the sedan and coupe is the SI model that gets an even more forceful grille and front bumper design plus a rear spoiler and lower air diffuser. Wheel sizes have also changed with the regular coupe receiving 16-inch wheels, up from 15-inches, and the SI now bumps the size from 17-inches to 18-inches.





economy. The small one is the exhaust system has been adjusted in both the sedan and coupe to let the engine breath better, improving horsepower slightly from 140hp to 143hp. The big change is the introduction of an inhouse continuously variable transmission (CVT), replacing the old 5-speed automatic. This actually makes this little car more drivable and might be the best CVT on the market. The car snaps away from a stop and cruises with ease on the highway, with quick changes

in the gear ratio that helps mimic a conventional automatic design. In addition, there is a sport mode and paddle shifters on the steering wheel to help liven things up. Honda has done a first rate job here and their efforts have been rewarded with a six per cent improvement in city fuel economy and an overall drop from 6.2L/100km combined to 6.0L, something very hard to do with such a small car. The driving dynamics of the Civic has always been very good due to a fully independent suspension and willing engine. The 143hp is a nice match for this car and the CVT is a great complement. The 5-speed manual is a blast to drive but it could use a 6th gear on the highway, as the high-revving engine can get noisy. The steering is crisp and the car overall instills a high level of confidence. Verdict Honda admits that their Civic might not be the top choice in every reason to buy a compact car but they are near the top in all categories. From fuel economy to reliability, resale value, cost of ownership and sportiness this car is a good choice. The many improvements made to the car over the past three-model-years, has taken the Civic from rather ordinary to rather extraordinary. They know how to make a good, solid, reliable car and for 2014t hings just got a little bit more interesting. The Lowdown Power: 1.8L 4-cylinder with 143hp or 2.4L with 205hp Fill-up: 6.7L/5.0L/100km (city/highway) Sticker price: $15,690-$26,655

driveway Drives-U-Crazy… One Eyes Drives

Cars and trucks with only one headlight shining drives many readers crazy. It may not seem like a big deal to drive with a light out in the city...until you hit a fog bank. And bear in mind that in pitch black conditions in rural areas a car with a light out looks like a motorcycle from a distance. And that’s deadly. Drivers judge distance by subconsciously noting how the two beams of an oncoming car widen as it gets nearer.

Midget Tyees clip Nanaimo, take playoff lead On Saturday, the No 1 Auto Body Midget Ty e e s , h o s t e d t h e Nanaimo Clippers at Rod Brinda’amour Arena in the Tyees’ second playoff game. Nic Kirchner was in the net for the Tyees who opened the scoring on the power play at 13:45, when Travis Goodwin put home a rebound off a shot by defenseman Matt Barker. The play was fairly even throughout the first period. Campbell River got a late goal at 11:14 when Jake Mckenzie took a hit along the boards to make a pass to Travis Goodwin, who then zipped a pass to Tyson Goebel in the slot. Goebel’s shot beat the Clipper’s goalie high glove side. The first period ended with the Tyees up 2-0. Just into the second period at 17:10, the Clippers got on the board, when a loose puck off a rebound was shot past the Tyees’ goalie Kirchner. The Tyees answered at 11:09 when a point shot was tipped by Goebel and ended up on the stick

The Tyees got a second power play goal at 6:10 on a three way passing play. Defenseman Cole Rennie carried the puck into the offensive zone, then passed to Kalem Penner, who slipped a pass to Keaton Dion it past the Clippers goalie. Then Campbell River got into some penalty trouble late in the game. Goalie Nic Kirchner

high into the open side of the net. The second period break found the Tyees up by a score of 4-1. At 8:04, shortly after play resumed, the Clippers won a puck battle in the Tyees’ zone and the puck

was fired high glove side to tally the Clipper’s second goal. At 6:21, Travis Goodwin banged home a rebound off a shot by Tyson Goebel for the Tyees’ fifth goal. The Tyees started the

third period up 5-2. At 19:02 of the period, the Clippers took a tripping penalty, which lead to a Tyees power play goal at 17:24, when Jake Mckenzie took a pass from Travis Goodwin for a tap in goal.

ond half, with offensive centre midfielder Shane Dumanoir often making strong runs with the ball at the Saanich defense and keeping the home team on their heels. Mainstream Canada enjoyed complete control in the second half with Mark Ross winning the physical battles in the middle of the pitch and Alex Foge using great creativity and footwork in leading attacks. Saanich did not have an answer to the fluidity and movement of the Young Masters midfield in the second half. With

fullback Kellen Rondeau making terrific overlapping runs on the left and Kevin Shelswell’s speed and skill on the right, the Young Masters carried out a well-balanced double threat to the Saanich defense. At the 50-minute mark, Cullen netted his second goal of the game from the top of the 18 yard box with a nicely executed volley which rocketed over the goalkeeper’s hands and just under the crossbar. Fifteen minutes later, Foge’s tireless running paid off as he finished off another wonderful bit of

THINKING OF INSTALLING A SECONDARY SUITE? Before you set up a rental suite with separate cooking, sleeping and bathroom facilities inside your house or on your property, consider this:



301 St. Ann’s Road, Campbell River, BC V9W 4C7 Telephone: 250-286-5700

FOR THE RECORD A recent letter to the editor grossly inflates costs for the inlaid granite stonework in the St. Ann’s block upgrade project. The letter writer did not provide a source for this misinformation and alleged costs are between $400,000 and $500,000. In fact, the total value for all of the granite (495 square metres) used in the downtown upgrade cost $109,030. This amount is approximately $75,000 more than if standard concrete sidewalk panels had been used in place of the stone. Funding for this project was, in part, from the Federal Gas Tax (Community Works Fund), the City’s gaming reserve, Parks Parcel Tax, and a frontage improvement contribution from Seymour Pacific. The granite feature was included in the design presented to the community – a design that intentionally creates a unique and attractive people place that will help support downtown businesses. Along with being an integral beautification aspect of the upgrade project, the granite provides a visual and tactile signal to pedestrians regarding intersections and crosswalks – enhancing both the appeal and safety of this area. Find information about downtown revitalization and other projects on the City’s website www. under Capital Improvement Projects. Questions? Contact the Capital Projects team at:

There are size restrictions for a secondary suite. • Secondary suites can be no larger than 90 square meters (approximately 970 square feet) • Secondary suites can be no larger than 40% of the main house • Secondary suites can have a maximum of two bedrooms Do you have enough room for required parking spaces? In addition to the two spaces required for the main house, one more parking space must be provided for a secondary suite. Are you in the correct zone for a secondary suite? Only certain zones in the City permit secondary suites. If your property is not located in a zone that permits secondary suites, you will need approval from the City to change it. Do you have a building permit? Apply at the City for a building permit to ensure that a secondary suite is constructed to meet health and safety requirements of the BC Building Code.

Notice of 2014 Annual General Meeting

Does your site require a development permit due to steep slopes, streams or eagle trees? Check the City’s Official Community Plan on the website, or visit us at City Hall to find out.

Campbell River City Hall, Committee Room 7:30pm

If a secondary suite was constructed without a permit, now what? To make an existing secondary suite legal, the property must be zoned appropriately and a building permit issued. The zone makes the secondary suite a permitted use, and the building permit ensures the suite meets the minimum safety standards for secondary suites as required by the 2012 BC Building Code.

If you are interested in experiencing a truly unique organization that has a 30 year relationship with our Sister City Ishikari, and one of the most successful student exchange programs in Western Canada, then come join us.

Protect your interests: Not having a building permit, or correct zoning for a secondary suite may have unexpected implications for home insurance.

Olive May Girard It is with a great sense of loss that we honour the passing of Olive May Girard (nee Sinnott) in the early morning hours of January 24, 2014 at her home in Black Creek. Olive was born on December 25, 1920 in Pincher Station, Alberta. She attended teacher’s college and taught in various one room schoolhouses in small Alberta towns before meeting and eventually marrying the love of her life, Joe, on July 28, 1945. After many moves, following Joe as he worked for the R.C.A.F, they eventually settled on a farm they named Appaloosa Acres in Black Creek. Olive loved animals and was happy to work alongside her family running the farm and the trail rides that gave enjoyment to many. Joe and Olive enjoyed square dancing and travelling in their motorhome. She loved being and working outdoors, especially in the garden and affectionately became known as “the rhubarb lady.” She looked forward to her daily bicycle ride and could still be spotted riding her bike around on the farm only a few months prior to her passing. She blessed many with her talent for knitting and crocheting. Olive was active in her church community. Her faith was a source of great joy and comfort for her throughout her life and gave her great solace, especially in her final days. Her warm and welcoming personality was treasured by many in her beloved community of Black Creek. Olive was a genuinely kind and loving person who believed in living out her Christian values, blessing many lives in the process. She truly never had a bad word to say about anyone. Family was incredibly important to Olive. A devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother, she was a true matriarch and she found great joy in the simple moments she spent with her family.

In loving memory

Olive was predeceased by her husband Joe, infant son Donald, son Donovan, brother Ernie and sister Annie. She will be greatly missed by her children Jerry, Mike, Colleen, Rick, Bernadine and Tim and their spouses, her brother John, her eighteen grandchildren, numerous great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. A mass in celebration of Olive’s life will be held at 12:00 p.m. on February 15, 2014 at Christ the King Catholic Parish in Courtenay. B.C. A reception will follow in the church hall. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Olive to the B.C. Cancer Foundation or the Comox Valley Hospice Society.

Lois Eileen Morgan


1942 -2014


Lois slipped away at home on Sat. 25 Jan., leaving behind her husband Art, children, Jeffrey (Beth) grandchildren Kate and Zach in Kamloops and Shelley (Matthew) grandchildren Mary and Seamus in North Vanc. and Sister-in Law Carol Armstrong of Belleville, Ont. She was predeceased by her parents Sam & Evylena Armstrong, brother Vernon and sister-in-law Joyce of Cherry Valley Ontario and brother Floyd of Belleville Ont. Lois grew up in Cherry Valley, Ontario. It was a small village and when school started in the fall, she was the only child in the village not going. She was allowed to sit and be quiet in the 2 room school for two years before she was allowed to enroll. Of course by this time she had absorbed most everything and was about 2 years ahead. She left the High School in Picton where she was taking a business course as she thought she was wasting her time and enrolled in Ontario Business College. She graduated from there and found work easily moving up in her career and finally ended up working for Ontario Hydro. She married her high school sweetheart, Art Morgan, in 1959. He had joined the RCAF and they moved to CFB St Hubert, across the river from Montreal, where she found employment as a civilian secretary. Their son Jeff was born there shortly before Art was transferred to CFB Cold Lake, Alberta, where daughter Shelley was born. Their final Transfer was to CFB Comox in 1965. Art left the RCAF in spring of 1968 and they purchased Happy’s Sporting Goods in Courtenay which they operated for almost 20 years. Her early education proved fortuitous as she became the money manager of both their business and personal life. Lois was easy to talk to and made many friends during the following years. Her laugh was honest, often & infectious. Her children were the focus of her life and she participated in everything they became involved in. She played ladies softball, drove her daughter to uncounted swim meets, and skied. She loved a good joke, a bit of gossip, good movies & hockey. When the children left home for school in the city, she became an ardent fisherman and traveled with Art to many Island hotspots. In 1984 she survived a cerebral hemorrhage and four years later her and Art sold Happy’s and retired. She remained a happy person for the next 25 years, enjoying wintering in AZ, dining out, traveling and doing puzzles. Last year she was diagnosed with cancer of a nature that could not be treated. She remained in her beloved home until the end, with her family providing care and support. Hers was a personality which could never be duplicated. Her many friends will miss her greatly and her family so much more. The family would like to thank Dr. Wiens and Dr. Winter for their constant & compassionate attention to Lois’ care. The dedication of the South Team Homecare and Nurses to Lois’ comfort was exemplary and indispensable. Celebration of Life to take place at Piercy’s Funeral Home on Saturday 15 Feb. 3PM.

Island market showing signs of vitality in New Year 30 30 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || FRIDAY, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY FEBRUARY 7, 7, 2014 2014

Sales activity across the Vancouver Island housing market area is in full swing this January, with reports of healthy inventory levels and unit sales across the Board. A total of 212 singlefamily homes sold in

the VIREB coverage area on the MLS system in January 2014. This represents a 15 per cent increase over the 184 sales recorded in January 2013, and almost no change from last month, which reported 210 unit

sales. VIREB president, Blair Herbert, is encouraged by the healthy sales activity occurring across the market coverage area. “The market began to show signs of vitality in the latter half of 2013,

and this momentum has continued to build as we move forward into January. The numbers definitely bode well for our spring market,” he stated. In January 2014, the benchmark price for a single-family home in

the VIREB coverage area was $307,700, with an MLS HPI index value of 144.6. (This represents a 44.6 per cent increase since January 2005, when the index was 100). The benchmark price is down 0.1 per cent from last

month and increased 0.8 per cent from last year. The average price of a single-family home in the VIREB area was $318,628, the same as it was this time last year. According to BCREA economist, Brendon

More magic: Barney Bernard and the Philosopher’s Cafe


he Philosophers’ Café was a popular event hosted by Michael McIvor at the Campbell River Museum for several years. When Michael decided not to continue with the series, Peter Schwarzhoff decided to revive it. At the first Café in Nov. 12 people discussed “What to do about the senate?” “It was a lively, but respectful discussion. I learned a lot and had a great time,” said Schwarzhoff. It seems the others did too. At the second Café, on the theme “Tough on Crime versus Smart on Crime” 35 people packed into Sybil Andrews Cottage. “Again the conversation and range of views

was fascinating, but it was difficult to hear at times because we were spread the length of the room.” Fortunately, Chrystal Arnet was one of those in that conversation. She could see there was a problem and offered to open her On-Line Gourmet, normally closed in the evenings, just to host the next event. With a new venue in hand, the next topic had to be chosen. Many proposals were put forward by the attendees including “How has the Campbell River environment/natural resource issue been handled over the years?”, How about Homelessness, Immigration/Temporary Foreign Workers, Canada/First Nations

relations, Marijuana and more. On Wednesday, Feb. 12 the public is invited to join in an hour-long conversation on the theme Support to our Veterans. News items have been suggesting that we are not treating our veterans properly. Post-traumatic stress disorer is not being treated. Medical discharges are lump-sum payments rather than pensions. Poverty and suicide is the fate of too many of our returning soldiers. And yet services offices for vets are being closed. What should we do? The presenter will be Barney Bernard, Services Officer with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 137. As with

each Café, Bernard will have just 10 minutes to introduce the topic, and then the floor is open for 50 minutes of discussion. Drop in to the Philosophers’ 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. Moderator for each evening is Greg Hill, executive director of the Campbell River Community Living Association.
