North Saanich consultant wants more Council to consider paying more for a report they voted to shelve Steven Heywood News staff
North Saanich council will consider paying a consultant nearly double the original price for work on their housing strategy and at the same time essentially shelved the consultant’s report until further notice. A majority of councillors voted Feb. 3 to ratify an earlier decision to consider paying Ed Grifone of CTQ Consltants Ltd. an estimated $68,595 for the District’s housing strategy implementation plan. That’s $29,595 more than an earlier agreed-upon price of $39,000 — and well above the original contract of only $19,000 set in late 2012. Council had agreed on the jump from $19,000 to $39,000 following Grifone’s first meeting in early 2013 with staff and council and the realization the project would be more involved than initially thought. Grifone, in a Dec. 13 letter to council, said the complexity of the assignment pushed his costs to more than $68,000. Council has decided to consider this increase as long as Grifone supplies an itemized and detailed account of additional services over and above the original terms of reference. Council Ed Grifone also voted to only do so if Grifone turns over his raw data from the housing plan. This was approved Feb. 3 in a 4-3 vote. Council has also asked Grifone to return to give a presentation to council on either Feb. 24 or April 14, and pay him an hourly rate of $170, plus expenses. The consultant had been to council to speak to his work in August, 2013 but that meeting was cut short when Councillors Dunstan Browne and Conny McBride walked out in protest of questions levelled at Grifone from Mayor Alice Finall, Coun. Elsie McMurphy and various citizens. “It was very unfortunate that your meeting of Aug. 19, 2013 ended so abruptly when I was prepared to address all matters related to the project,” Grifone stated in his Dec. 13 letter.

Peninsula News in brief Correction
The Feb. 7 story on Seaport Place in Sidney contained an error on building height. Land use restrictions there allow for only two-story buildings, not three, as was reported. The Town’s rezoning process will only address the issue of residential use on the property. Mayor Larry Cross says he would not support changing the height limit at this site and comments attributed to him to the opposite were incorrect. The News Review apologizes for the error. — Editor

Boats break free in winter storm Vessels wash up on the beach in Tsehum Harbour Steven Heywood News staff
Boats were torn from their moorings in Tsehum Harbour during high winds recently and washed up on shore, starting the challenge of getting them back in the water. Overnight Tuesday, Feb. 4, a storm blew up in the harbour and two vessels were sent onto the beach in front of Sidney waterfront residents. Accompanying them was a large amount of debris from another three vessels that sank.
Janet Rooke, harbour master at the Tsehum Harbour Authority, says at least one derelict sailboat had sunk in the first winter storm back in November and is still out there. The two sailboats on the beach, she continued, have been there at least once before. “Two months ago, the smaller one broke free and washed up in almost the same place,” she said. The boat was dug out and towed back into the harbour to a new mooring. The owner was notified. The larger of the two has
also broken loose in the past, Rooke said, but she does not know who owns it. Despite that, she said it was returned to a mooring prior to the most recent storm. Rooke said it’s up to the boat owners to arrange to have them towed off of the beach. In the event an owner cannot be found, she said people like herself and her husband spend their own time getting the vessels upright again. Another of those people is Mark Smith, who was checking the beached vessels on Thursday, Feb. 6. He says
he’s a diver and has salvaged boats in the harbour. He said he lives aboard one of the sailboats moored in Tsehum Harbour and had to be rescued by the Coast Guard Tuesday night during the high winds. He said he is none the worse for wear, but expressed dismay at the sinking of a couple of the vessels. “This one here, she’s a pretty good boat, it’s too bad she’s on her side,” Smith said of the larger of the two on the beach. “There’s no numbers on her at all anywhere.” Smith said he plans to get
Eleven people hospitalized in house fire Up to 16 people in the house at the time Steven Heywood News staff
Eleven people were taken to hospital after an early morning fire erupted in a house on the Pauquachin First Nation in North Saanich. Police were called to the home at around 2:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 5, says Cpl. Erin Fraser of the Sidney
North Saanich RCMP. One man suffered serious burns and smoke inhalation, she said, and is expected to remain in hospital at least overnight. She reported later Thursday afternoon that the man, in his 20s, is in serious condition with burns to his back. The other 10 people taken to hos-
pital were expected to be released later today after treatment for smoke inhalation. There were 15 or 16 people in the house at the time, Fraser said, adding police have been interviewing witnesses and the occupants to get further information about what happened and how many people were inside.

At the Marina Park Marina, employee Keijo Isomaa said a small boat broke loose and drifted into a walkway at their facility. He called the RCMP and they quickly identified the owner and have contacted them. Isomaa said the incidents highlight a growing concern about older or derelict boats moored in the area, causing navigation hazards and even environmental damage.

Residents blaming council Continued from page 1
“We cannot begin to understand the politics of your community. However, we are professionals and we have no reservations about returning to North Saanich to explain our findings…” Some residents are blaming the council for not hearing out Grifone when he was in the community and are now faced with even more costs association to this project. “CTQ did come to address council and councillors walked out,” said Lorrene Soellner, a resident and outspoken critic of the council majority. “No debate was even allowed then.” Coun. Ted Daly noted during the debate that if he was Mr. Grifone, he wouldn’t come back to North Saanich.
Consultant’s report approved, but shelved
North Saanich’s council majority seems to think it got what it wanted out of the CTQ Consultants report on housing in the district for now and have voted to take no further action on it. On Feb. 3, Coun. Dunstan Browne amended a motion to approve the report in principle subject to changes council may wish to make — adding that staff is not required to take any further action. Mayor Alice Finall and Coun. Elsie McMurphy called the motion irrational and beyond understanding. “I am against this,” said McMurphy. “There has been no wide consultation on (the report) in the community. And council has already adopted some things contrary to what’s in the report.” She also wondered about council stating it can change the consultant’s work. “I’m worried council would adopt this without consultation or a clear understanding of the issues within it,” added Finall, repeating her call for an affordable housing strategy and even a full Dunstan Browne review of North Saanich’s official community plan in the wake of the consultant’s findings. North Saanich chief administrative officer Rob Buchan said council already accepted the consultant’s report in the fall of 2013 and at the same time, accepted two recommended areas for housing growth — the McTavish Road area and land along McDonald Park Road. Buchan said council at that time directed staff to proceed with developing policy on those areas. “What we don’t know,” he continued, “is what council wants staff to do with (the rest) of the report.” “What this means,” Browne said, “is we’ll tell (staff) what to do. Right now, there’s nothing more to do.” The motion passed, 4-3.

View the Guide to find: • the minimum required performance of new homes • more than 200 performance guidelines, and • criteria to help consumers self-evaluate possible defects in 15 major construction categories.
Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertips to help them better understand how their new home should perform and how their home warranty insurance works. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is available on the Homeowner Protection Office website www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains the basics of a well constructed home and how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes.

Sidney cool to amalgamation
Central Saanich will consider new committee
Mayor says there are no plans to poll citizens in November Steven Heywood News staff
Sidney’s mayor doesn’t expect his town to consider amalgamating with its Greater Victoria neighbours any time soon. Amalgamation Yes, of the Capital Region Municipal Amalgamation Society, recently presented their case to council. They are seeking a non-binding municipal amalgamation referendum question during the next local elections in November. The society sees amalgamation as one way to reduce costs to taxpayers in a variety of service areas and are asking that the advantages and disadvantages of the idea be debated publicly.

He said he doesn’t want to dissuade citizens from the issue, but added “people really need to think about it carefully.” According to amalgamationyes.ca, the City of Victoria has agreed to add the nonbinding question on amalgamation in the November, 2014 municipal election. editor@peninsula newsreview.com

Winter’s blast mild to some A classic winter e-blast from Vancouver Island to friends or relatives east of us features a golfer in shorts under sunny skies. That was true for January, as we had a little less rain and slightly warmer than usual temperatures. Then came February. Tourists posed for photos in front of the ice-caked fountain on the front lawn of the Weather warms provincial legislature building. People dug quickly here around in forgotten on the Island corners of the closet for a parka to cover the -7 C (plus wind chill) daytime lows. That’s still positively balmy for winter in most of Canada. Yes, we live here because of the mild — as opposed to wild — climate, but we really can’t complain. In relation to the wildly low temps hitting our Prairies and East Coast counterparts, this is still the warm land. A ski hill in Calgary closed one day last week because it was too cold. Temperatures there ranged from -21 C to -26 C with the wind chill. Once things warmed up Thursday, they were as cold as we were at the chilliest point of our week of winter. In central B.C. east to Manitoba, a freeze set in that featured average norms of -20 C or colder when normal temperatures range from -1 C to -6 C. Folks who shifted here from the northern part of the province, or elsewhere in Canada, scoff as we don that never-needed, too-warm sweater or mitts and toques. This isn’t real winter to them. Yes cold records were broken on the south coast. But while we may find it uncomfortable, we’re among the luckiest in the nation. A dip to -10 C (with the wind chill) is what we call a deep-freeze winter … and we are, after all, still in mid-winter. Clear and cold, as opposed to wet and warm is the way of winter. Besides, a certain contingent of Greater Victorians will complain about the weather no matter what. But don’t worry, these stretches generally only last a week or so, then folks can go back to complaining about the rain. What do you think?

Marijuana facility a burden to the taxpayers
believe that marijuana growth in North Saanich should be prohibited. This type of operation is not appropriate in a residential area for many reasons. North Saanich council has not considered the experience
of other municipalities and appears to be rushing their decision before the release of federal guidelines. I believe property values will decline, the facilities produce obnoxious odours that prevent neighbours from going outdoors, that these same facili-
ties need to have security strictly enforced and that it raises the potential for crime and therefore the need for additional policing in these areas. This will, I am sure, subsequently prove to be yet another burden to the taxpayers.
I am outraged that North Saanich council would consider allowing these businesses to utilize our precious Agricultural Land Reserve. This land is desperately needed for the growth of food for the Island. It is beyond comprehension
that business enterprises should be allowed to utilize this land and have reduced taxes. Surely such enterprises belong in an industrial area along with all the other businesses. N. Masson North Saanich
Readers respond: Medical marijuana production in North Saanich; opinions rejected Your editorial (Feb. 7, PNR) suggests problems associated with grow-ops only apply to illegal ones but that is not true. My friend lives near a small registered grow-op in North Saanich and says the odour is extremely unpleasant. Since the ALC has indicated that marijuana production is an approved use for ALR land, any neighbours adversely affected by odour will likely run up against the Right to Farm Act. Even legal grow-ops are attractants to the criminal element. Otherwise, why would they have barbed-wire fences, ground sensors, security guards and guard dogs — as in the case of one registered grow-op in Abbotsford? And why would the government require this crop be
grown in secure closed buildings, when it can easily be grown in the field? However one feels about the use of marijuana, medicinally or recreationally, the issue of whether to prohibit grow-ops in North Saanich is really about land-use. At a time when our food supply is threatened by drought, development pressure, climate change and other issues, is this how we want to use our fertile agricultural land? An industrial area or land with very questionable food-producing potential would be a more appropriate location. And while some believe this crop may provide farmers with a viable income, the reality is that most farmers don’t want to grow it and our Agricultural Advisory Commission recommended it not be allowed on agricultural
land. I applaud Mayor Finall and Councillors McMurphy, Stock, Browne and Mearns, who voted to take a cautious approach to this issue until we know more about the implications for our community and our food security, though too late to stop the grow-op on McTavish. Bernadette Greene North Saanich
attempt to prevent the motion that took away this citizen’s rights. I am outraged by
this behavior! In spite of the council’s unwillingness to take note of anyone’s opinion,
I would suggest that this survey is, at best, flawed. This fact adds to my concern over the
housing implementation policy. L. Wingate North Saanich
I’m everyone’s son-in-law. The best part of my day? Speaking the universal language of laughter.

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES Kick up your heels at Brentwood’s Kimura Shukokai Brentwood Bay karate dojo hosting fundraiser this month Devon MacKenzie News staff
Members at Kimura Sukokai Karate in Brentwood Bay are hoping to expand their knowledge and love of the sport through international experts, but they need a little help getting there. “In our style of karate we have experts who have been teaching for over 40 years all over the world,” explained Peter Johnson, a member of the dojo in Brentwood Bay. “One of the most exciting things for us is to be able to bring in one of these experts every couple of years to teach and inspire us.” The Kimura Shukokai dojo in Brentwood Bay was started by Sensei Dave Bentley in 2000 and he has since expanded into having dojos
in North Saanich, Sooke and on the Westshore. Bentley, a world-class fifth-level blackbelt, has spent over 30 years practising the Shukokai style and has travelled all over the world with the sport. “That’s one of the things I really love about this style of karate is that there is such a huge worldwide connection,” said Johnson. “There’s so many opportunities to travel and meet people from other countries as well as bring in people to our local dojos who have worldwide experience.” Johnson started training in Shukokai Karate 10 years ago with his son. “It’s really family oriented here, it’s common to see a whole family who all train here together. That’s another great part about

Instructor Rob Walker takes students through exercises during a class at Kimura Shukokai Karate in Brentwood Bay. this style of karate is that it’s accessible for all skill levels,” Johnson explained,
adding that their members range in age from as young as three to over 60.
In order to keep learning and expanding their knowledge of the practice of Shu-
kokai karate, the Brentwood Bay dojo is hosting a fundraiser this month with The Sutcliffes, a Beatles tribute band. “Hosting the fundraiser will allow us to be able to bring in an expert who we can all learn from,” Johnson explained. The fundraiser is taking place at Brentwood Hall (7082 Wallace Dr.) on Saturday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. The music is slotted to start at 8 p.m. along with a silent auction and refreshments. Tickets for the event ($20) are available in advance at Stonestreet Cafe in Sidney and Keating and at CIBC in Saanichton at the door.

Legendary Platters at the Winspear SIDNEY — The Legendary Platters and the Inkspots are at the Mary Winspear Centre for two shows next weekend. On Feb. 21 and 22 the two groups take the stage at 7:30 p.m. The Platters were one of the top vocal groups of the 50s scene and achieved their success with their crooning, pop-oriented and harmony-rich material. Their distinctive sound was a bridge between the Tin Pan Alley tradition and the burgeoning new genre of Rock ‘n Roll. The Platters toured the world as international ambassadors of musical goodwill.

The Inkspots play with the Legendary Platters next weekend in the Charlie White Theatre. That vibe continues today as their music lives on in such legendary titles as Only You, The Great Pretender and Earth Angel. In an era where ‘the single’ was the thing,
The Legendary Platters released a total of 38 singles and sold fiftythree million records. They were also among the first DooWop groups to be inducted into the Rock

Association celebrating sister city SIDNEY — This year the Sidney Sister Cities Association (SSCA) celebrates the 30th anniversary of welcoming Cairns, Australia as Sidney’s first sister city. Although it was 1984 when the agreement was signed, SSCA was not formed until the 90s. “Prior to that it was the Sister Cities Advisory Committee, reporting directly to the Town Council,” explained SSCA president Lesley Nicholls. Following a number of official
and private visits between the two towns, the relationship was little more than an exchange of Christmas cards. In 2008 SSCA received an invitation from Cairns for ceramicists in Sidney to take part in an exhibition of work by artists from all seven of Cairns’ sister cities. The association spread the word throughout the arts community, and through the following two years Sidney also participated in photographic and fibre
arts exhibits. A highlight of the 30th anniversary celebrations will be a display at the Sidney Museum, which will feature gifts SSCA has received over the years from Cairns, Anacortes in Washington State, and Niimi in Japan. Any contributions of memorabilia and travel treasures can be submitted before the end of April. Contact Nicholls at email@example.com. — Submitted by the Sidney Sister Cities Association

Sidney, BIA to combine jobs SIDNEY — Sidney and its new business improvement association have agreed in principle to combine two jobs into one that would help promote local events. The Town of Sidney and Sidney Business Improvement Area (SBIA) plan to combine the role of the SBIA’s marketing director and an event liaison position. Mayor Larry Cross says they have formed an advisory group to develop the event co-ordinator position portion of the role. It would, he said, see
better development of local events while ensuring they do not overlap at the expense of any one local event. Cross said that under the plan, the different jobs would form two separate contracts, only one of which would be partially funded by the Town, both lasting one year in a trial period. — Steven Heywood

Milligan, 20, will be counted on to score goals and add experience to the Panthers’ roster in the playoffs. tools to go on a long playoff run — we have experience, goal-scoring, solid defence and above-average goaltending, so we just have to get in the playoff mode in game one against the Wolves.” The Panthers controlled the regular-season series against the Wolves however the playoffs is a brand new season, said team manager, Pete Zuberky. “I like our squad as much as any team we’ve had since Coreen and I jumped back into ownership with John Wilson,” he said. “Anything can happen in the playoffs and that’s what makes this
time of year so exciting. “We respect the Wolves and the firepower that they possess. They can run up the score as quickly as any team in the league and they’re comfortable playing a run-andgun high-scoring game.
