aralympic skier Braydon Luscombe aims to follow his team’s slogan and “put the metal to the carpet” — and land on the podium in Sochi, Russia. Slalom may be Luscombe’s best shot at gold in the March 11 to 18 Games, he explained sitting at home near North Cowichan’s Art Mann Park with faithful dachshund, Lola, snoozing on his lap. If that sounds like a lofty goal, it’s not without reason. Olympic athletes can test courses in countries set to host the games one year earlier. Luscombe liked what he saw. “I placed fifth in test event for slalom last year,” he said of runs at Sochi. “Really, I’ll just do my best and see what that can give me, but I’m aiming for fifth or better in slalom.” But to standing-skier Luscombe, 21, there definitely is no ‘I’ in teamwork. “Our team’s attitude is that we’re really adaptable,” he said, citing his four committed Que-

uncan’s Paul Francisty ventured to Sochi, Russia to work at the Olympic Winter Games, but you know what they say about all work and no play. Francisty found plenty of time for play and to enjoy the atmosphere of the Games while doing his part as a course worker for alpine skiing events at the Rosa Khutor Resort. Francisty’s responsibilities were to “maintain a course and the gate you’re attached to,’’ he explained. Francisty experienced first-hand the inner workings of the Games, just as he did at Whistler during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and will do again in Don Bodger four years’ time in Korea. Paul Francisty and his green bib. “I got excited about Sochi because it’s a different country, same thing with Korea,’’ Francisty said. The only thing is the travel to that part of the world from here can be rather arduous. It was a 43-hour ordeal from start to finish for Francisty before he returned home to the valley Monday night. “The connections are not the best,’’ he understated. Now just how did Francisty attain such as prime assignment? Well, he’s been around the slopes of Mount Washington and beyond for a long time, for starters. “I’ve been involved with alpine racing for 20 years now,’’ he said. “I do all the World Cups. This was a no-brainer.’’ The invitations went out to apply for placement at the Olympics two years ago and Francisty jumped at it. The process got bogged down in the later stages leading up to the Games. “Russians like their paperwork and you follow it,’’ Francisty said. It took a while to sort everything out, and he didn’t actually book his trip until mid-January. Francisty said it took some 27,000 volunteers to run the Olympics compared to 10,000 in Vancouver. “The Russians wanted to run the Olympics themselves,’’ he said. “They didn’t want international workers.’’ more on page 14 bchonda.com

Vancouver students spend week here soaking in Salish culture Grade 6 and 7: Cowichan sweaters spark week-long field trip Ashley Degraaf

er own love of knitting and admiration of the Cowichan sweater is what inspired Vancouver’s Bayview Community School teacher Gina Wane. Wane recently facilitated a cross-cultural class project in Cowichan. Wane’s Grade 6 and 7 students visited the Warm Land last week, hopping a ferry to visit Penelakut Island earlier in the week then hosting a tea honouring Cowichan knitters at the Quw’utsun’ Cultural Centre on Friday. “Since September we have been studying about the Coast Salish people...,” said Wane. “I am a knitter and an admirer of Cowichan knitting since my youth. While visiting the island I saw that knock-off Cowichan sweaters were being sold in the shops. “This catapulted me on a mission to teach my students about Cowichan knitting so they would appreciate and admire the Cowichan people and their culture.” Wane researched and read everything she could on Cowichan knitters. “Wanting to make the Coast Salish the theme of our year, I found a novel Count“This catapulted me ing on Hope by on a mission to teach Sylvia Olsen — a novel which my students about partly takes Cowichan knitting.” place on Penelakut Island.” Olsen’s historical book, which takes place in the early days of colonization on and around Penelakut Island, formerly known as Kuper Island until 2010, was the perfect fit for her student’s studies.

Wane

Vancouver’s Bayview students listen to author Sylvia Olsen Friday during a cultural exchange project the class particpated in last week. Learning from Olsen’s novel led to the next stage in the project. “One day during discussions in the class, I mentioned that we should invite some Cowichan knitters to come to our school for an in-class field trip. One of my students, Hannah, shouted out from the depths of a twelve-year-old, ‘Why don’t we go there?’ “I said, ‘Let’s do it.’” Wane called the elementary school on Penelakut. Principal Roxanne Harris was glad to help. “After consulting with the chief’s council and a teacher at the school, the project was put into motion,” said Wane. The students spent four days with the Penelakut Island students and community. “One of my students, Charlotte, leaving the ferry last night said, ‘Gina if someone

asked me what was the most surprising thing about the trip it would be that we spent more than one hour on welcoming us to Penelakut and thanking us for coming. That was so cool.’” The city students got a taste of the Penelakut school’s talking circle, how to introduce themselves in traditional fashion, archery, sewing, Coast Salish wool and weaving, Metis rap, cooking Indian fry bread, First Nations music and drum making. A day was also spent in Victoria at the legislature and the Royal B.C. Museum and the Spaghetti Factory. On their last day of the trip, the class stopped by the Qwu’tsun’ Cultural Centre where they hosted a tea for the knitters. “My students had made paper Cowichan sweaters,” Wane said.

“As a perfect ending to a magical four days, Sylvia Olsen, the author of the book we read, captured the students for forty-five minutes telling her story of how she ended up living with the Tsartlip People as a white woman married to a First Nations man and with children of mixed heritage. “There are so many more magical moments such as a double full rainbow as we left the Island, an eagle soaring in a circle above us while John, our tour guide at the Qwu’tsun’ Centre told stories at the totem poles, children’s hearts opened and were touched by love. “All the students have had their lives touched and changed.” Wane’s class is in the process of making a short film from raw footage captured during the trip.

Confidence.

“In Duncan I have a good friend who noticed I had problems following conversations in background noise . . . he suggested I make an appointment with his audiologist, Dr. Miranda. Since birth I, now 77 years old, have had profound hearing loss and have been to many audiologists, clinics and hearing aid technicians looking for help. Owing to this experience, it puts me in the position to judge the quality of examinations . . . I must say that I have never had such a good examination as I had with Dr. Miranda. Also, my wife was impressed . . . Dr. Miranda has my fullest confidence.”

Cowichan teachers preparing to join colleagues in strike vote in wake of ‘unacceptable offer’

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

C

owichan Valley teachers will be taking a strike vote Tuesday through Thursday along with their provincial counterparts. “The BCTF has come to the table with packages that are totally unacceptable,’’ said Cowichan District Teachers’ Association president Naomi Nilsson. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Jim Iker announced B.C. teachers will vote on another strike mandate due to “unreasonable proposals’’ from the province’s negotiating team that includes wages lower than what other public sector unions have received, and a continual refusal to put class size and special needs support limits back into the contract. “Essentially with regard to the strike vote, it is just a vote at this point,’’ said Nilsson. “There is no date for job action if it is going to happen.’’ A BCTF news release indicated once a strike vote is taken, the union would have 90 days to activate some sort of job action. Job action would occur in stages, the release said, but would not involve school closures or disruption for students, withdrawal of teachers from extracurricular activities or affect report cards and communication with parents. “We’re not talking about a full escalation,’’ said Nilsson. “I don’t think in the history of the BCTF we’ve had a ‘no’ vote,’’ she added. “We’ve tended to always be in support of what’s

CDTA president Naomi Nilsson said no date is set for job action, if it does happen. happening provincially.’’ Peter Cameron, appointed last year as chief negotiator for B.C.’s 60 school boards, said Tuesday he is surprised the union is going to a strike vote without tabling its complete position. Meanwhile, the B.C. Court of Appeal suspended a lower court ruling Wednesday that would force B.C.’s school districts to reorganize around teacher contract terms scrapped by the government in 2002. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said the latest turn in the long-running legal battle with the BCTF allows stability for parents and students while negotiations continue on class size and other issues. He said the decision provides a “stable environment’’ for school districts to prepare for next September under existing arrange-

ments. B.C. School Trustees Association president Teresa Rezansoff said in a news release the association welcomes the news. “Through the stay ruling, there is a recognition of the disruption that would have been felt by the public education system and boards of education had there been immediate implementation of the January 27 ruling,’’ she said. “I believe they still need to see if the appeal will be heard at this point and the appeal still needs to be ruled on,’’ said Nilsson. Neither Cowichan School District superintendent Joe Rhodes nor secretary-treasurer Bob Harper would comment due to the speculative nature of the ruling. On another note, SD 79 changed the format for its parent-teacher interviews. They were not being run after school and into the evening but only until the dismissal bell. “The reason for the proposed change is to allow the district to utilize their days in lieu as staff development days,’’ pointed out Nilsson in a news release. “Teachers believe evening parent teacher interviews are more valuable to student learning than district-led staff development days. The district may opt for the afternoon interview format in the 2014-15 school year, Nilsson added. With that in mind, she suggested parents make their opinions known to the district via email or by attending the Wednesday board meeting at the Cowichan Secondary School Quamichan Campus at 7 p.m. — with a file from Tom Fletcher

Lock it up Lake Cowichan, thieves busy

Warning: RCMP say take care, multiple thieves targetting homes, sheds and vehicles Ross Armour

here are thieves on the loose in Lake Cowichan and RCMP officers are emphasizing the importance of locking up. A number of thefts has taken place in the Cowichan Lake area recently, not only involving vehicles, but break-ins to residences, sheds and outbuildings as well. “Most of the offences are occurring in the early morning hours between midnight and 5 a.m., however three residences along Grant’s Lake Road were broken into during the day…when the homeowner was out of the house,” said Sgt. Wes Olsen in a press release. “ Thieves are targeting small change, electronics and tools from the unlocked vehicles, hand and power tools from sheds and outbuildings and cash and jewelry from the residences.” Olsen says unlocked vehicles are an easy target and the thieves have also been reported breaking into buildings or sheds by cutting locks. “Most of the time the culprits are believed to be on foot or bicycle but one early morning B&E to

Police are warning the public to take extra care with their vehicles and their homes due to a rash of break-ins to both. a shed in the 200 block of Grant’s Lake Road on Feb. 10 required a vehicle as a set of four tires on chrome rims was stolen.” Police believe there is more than one gang of thieves on the loose. “Evidence at some scenes suggest just one suspect, whereas recently two suspicious males were seen in Point Ideal around 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 20 going into yards where no lights were on checking vehicles and residences.”  A resident on Tal Road noted the two males and their suspicious behaviour and called police. The males were confronted by two dif-

ferent residents who followed them in their vehicles and scared them out of the area prior to police arrival.  “The most recent B&E occurred sometime after midnight on Feb. 23, where a culprit or culprits broke into the St. Christopher’s Anglican Church on Cowichan Avenue West and stole a small sum of money. The rear door of the church was forced open with a crowbar which police recovered from the scene.” As well as locking up properly, RCMP are also encouraging locals to record serial numbers of items.

yes and ears are being placed around Shawnigan Lake to be on the lookout and listen for unsafe practices through a volunteer-driven program. Lake Watch is a South Cowichan Community Policing program that has the full support of the Shawnigan RCMP, similar to programs that have been operating to great success in other communities. “Through consistent and verifiable reporting, the RCMP will be in a better position to act on unsafe or unseemly conduct on the lake and to dispatch the police boat when necessary or follow up on complaints,’’ noted Alison Philp, program coordinator for South Cowichan Community Policing. Residents and users of Shawnigan Lake are being sought to form an action committee that will advise on the webpage, signage and tracking mechanisms as well as recruiting people to

Tracking will be a means to identify problematic boaters and for the Cowichan Valley Regional District to maintain statistics on lake usage. The webpage and tracking documents can be found under the Programs heading at the website southcowichancommunitypolicing.ca. Philp indicated Lake Watch has the support in principle of not only the RCMP and CVRD, but Shawnigan Lake B.C.

Looming local government change: happening at the request of B.C. municipalities

Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

L

ike most things, there can be good and bad in change. But Cowichan’s elected government leaders are mostly seeing the plusses of a decision to extend municipal terms from three to four years. “I think it’s actually going to be a real good thing,” said Duncan Councillor Joe Thorne, who’s currently serving his second term. “When I first came into council, it took me about a year to fully understand what I was doing and if you really want to take care of a community, you really have to understand it. If we didn’t have the passion and commitment, we wouldn’t be doing it.” North Cowichan Councillor Barb

Lines agreed. “I think in the terms of a new person coming in and getting up to speed, I think it’s great,” she said. “I think it’s not really until your second year when you understand the issues deeply.” Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Coralee Oakes made the announcement Tuesday she will introduce legislation to extend the local government terms. That will take effect in time for elections this fall. Oakes said the change comes after Union of B.C. Municipalities support at its convention last September. The issue has been debated many times and been divisive over the years, with some rural politicians arguing against extending the commitment for jobs with little pay. Lines wondered for some political servants if a four-year term was too much of commitment. “I’m hoping it won’t discourage people from running,” she said. Lines, who’s currently serving her second term, also sees the bonus in savings with less money spent on

elections. Thorne also liked the idea of more time to move important projects forward. “The reason why provinces across Canada have moved to four years is it provides greater certainty in communities to move those very important projects forward, things such as infrastructure improvements,” Oakes said. “It provides opportunities for local government officials to understand their projects and to carry them through.” The change would mean the next municipal election after 2014 would be held in 2018, on a schedule that follows provincial elections by one year. Oakes said there was no intent to avoid having both elections at the same time, and she is acting in response to the UBCM’s vote to go ahead. Extending the term of office will apply to B.C.’s mayors and all elected officials serving municipalities, regional districts, parks boards, school boards and the Islands Trust. —With files from Tom Fletcher

North Cowichan: Councillor wants to use surplus to give taxpayer a break

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

N

orth Cowichan council budget debate Wednesday will revolve around a notice of motion made by Councillor John Koury to cap the budget increase at 1%. “North Cowichan’s priority setting and planning for the future has come at a cost,’’ pointed out Koury in a letter to the News Leader Pictorial. “The new addition to the municipal hall, the expansion and re-organizing of planning and engineering has increased capital and operational costs significantly. These government increases were made during tough economic times.’’ Combined with tax shifting since 2009, this has resulted in major property tax increases for North Cowichan Valley Branch 50+ years of service in our community

Cowichan homeowners, Koury pointed out. “I support the sensible measures and systems that have added to the cost of government. The planning we do now in slow times is designed to streamline operations and create attractive investment conditions for increased planned growth. We’re getting ready for when good times return. “Where I depart from administration at this point during the budget review is how the municipality pays for all the things it wants and needs. From what I can see in the proposed budget, administration needs about $700,000 more this year than it needed last year.’’ Koury added he’s going to ask the chief administrative officer to draft a budget that raises taxes by 1% that would account for $250,000 and then use reserves to cover the rest. “I will ask council not to shoulder #205-169 Craig Street (250) 746-4058 Cowichan@bc.sja.ca www.sja.ca/bc

the entire cost of future planning onto today’s taxpayer.’’ Koury feels North Cowichan can easily take a contribution from surplus without any harm. “I believe we’re also due to get a rundown of those reserve accounts, how much each one has in it, what the money’s earmarked for and what the implications would be of raiding those funds to finance our operations,’’ pointed out fellow Councillor Al Siebring. Siebring isn’t convinced Koury’s proposal is going to fly. “If council wants to limit tax increases, the only way to do that is to take the hard decisions on which services are essential, which are important and which are nice to have, but not either essential or important. “That’s a debate I’ve been waiting to have since I got elected in ‘08, but there never seems to be either the time or the political stomach for it.’’

Angels with shovels: Sometimes the simplest of initiatives can make a huge difference

T

wo young guys with shovels, strong backs and a little time on their hands. Most would praise their initiative and some their entrepreneurial spirit as they slung those shovels over their shoulders Sunday and marched around the Sherman Road area, knocking on doors. Linda Hodding, however, was using stronger superlatives. To Linda and her husband Doug, the nameless pair are best described as miracle workers. As the flakes began to fall on Friday, You never the older couple was heading for bed, in the early stages of falling prey to know what a some nasty sickness. helping hand They didn’t resurface until Sunday morning. Their house was dark and might mean cold, their fridge empty. And they were socked in —their driveway thoroughly blocked by the nearly 50 centimetres of snow that had fallen during their 36 hours of mostly slumber. Exhaustion, fear and despair melted into a puddle in Linda’s stomach as she considered the likelihood of getting out of the house anytime before a thaw. And that’s when she saw the shovels waving up toward her front door. The faces that appeared after she answered the knock appeared to be in their late teens. They asked if she wanted her driveway and sidewalk cleared. “For what.” she asked. “Whatever you think is fair,” they replied. Then they went to work. She didn’t get their names. But their memories will endure. To most, they were just a couple of enterprising young guys. To Linda, they were a light that pierced the darkness.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: four-year council terms The case against

The case for

Three-year terms are funny beasts. You spend the first year learning the ropes and the players, the second trying to implement changes and the third putting things on hold because there is an election taking place. Four-year terms would allow for much greater consistency, much more actual governing to take place. And isn’t good governance what we elect them for?

A re-elected Phil Kent would be around for another four years under a planned elections change.

Four years may make sense to those glass-half-full folks. The rest of us have a bigger concern: what happens if we elect a bunch of duds? How do we protect ourselves from the amount of damage they can wreak during a longer term in office. No four-year term should be acceptable without a mechanism in place that allows for recall.

t was pointed out to me that fellow columnist Aaron Bichard and I covered a very similar theme just days apart last month. We wrote about how, when trying to effect positive change, we all need to keep a level head and communicate openly and rationally. One would think these opinions would be met with support. I mean, it’s a no-brainer, right? Common sense prevails? Sadly, both columns were met with people who disagreed. It’s almost as if the positive, “work hard for the betterment of us all,” message was a 747 that some people pushed the mute button on as it ripped by right over their heads. Or they’d already made up their minds that our idea would never work, even before said message got off the ground.

Everybody’s got their “button” subject — that one thing that sets them off. Maybe there’s a cavalcade of buttons, or folks who apply a sliding scale of button-ness. But one thing’s for certain — if you push that button (whatever it might be) it’s on. As a columnist, you have to be prepared to feel the heat from those who disagree with your opinions, and the wrath of those who disagree vehemently. Sometimes it’s your purpose to step up and slam those buttons like you’re standing next to the late Richard Dawson in a back-catalogue episode of Family Feud. But sometimes you slam one even when you think you are treading with the best of intentions on safe ground. There are internet trolls everywhere, looking to spark reactions and “keyboard commandos” cruising for a war of words. We live in a society where — thanks to technology — anyone who has an opinion can get it out there in seconds. But when met

with detractors, things often devolve real quick-like. Even more often, they devolve into an unproductive backand-forth of disparate ideas. Why? Because the respondents involved are more than likely inflexible in their positions (myself included.) Unless one eschews the public realm altogether, it’s virtually impossible to avoid someone who has something critical to say about you. Even Canadian music icon Burton Cummings apparently isn’t immune. “The hatred really hurts,” he wrote on Facebook in regard to recent criticism of a post he made. “I’m still stunned by the abundance of mediocre thinking in an age immersed in computer chip shenanigans,” he stated. He was lamenting the fact that with so many time-saving devices in use, few people apparently use their saved time to read and educate themselves. His comments had already received more

than a thousand likes and hundreds of comments. Some people offered suggestions on how to reasonably deal with the unreasonable respondents. Me? My approach is a bit more straightfor-the-jugular. That’s how, after a quick search, I ended up at howtoarguewithanidiot.com. I clicked on the link and it was a black page, with white, very large, lower-case letters spelling out the most poignant and simplest of messages:

No, I don’t think they should have that much authority and power.

Animals depend on us humans for their care, so yes they should be able to seize them while they sort out the details of the situation.

Building on a floodplain is bad development

Dear editor I returned recently from the River Restoration Northwest conference in the Columbia Gorge at Skamania Lodge on the Washington/Oregon border. There, I co-taught a short course on soil bioengineering. Speakers from around the world presented talks on a variety of topics, but the theme that kept coming through was the importance of allowing watercourses to reclaim their floodplains. In Seattle for instance, they have a drainage tax that is used to buy floodplain properties and remove levies and dikes. In Colorado they are moving out of the floodplains, removing channel constraining constructions (e.g. rip-rap) and re-establishing natural floodplain vegetation. All over the world people in responsible positions are moving away from developments in floodplains. I hope we can look to these examples and not make the costly mistakes of continuing to build in floodplain areas. I hope North Cowichan council can recognize continued development in the Cowichan River (including tributary streams) floodplain is the wrong thing to do. Building in the floodplain with attendant loss of ecological services will result in increased flooding and will eventually cost the taxpayers more than if we let the natural systems provide the goods and services, including flood control, carbon sequestration, pollution abatement and a host of others, that they have been doing for free for millennia. David Polster Duncan

Tell your director the CVRD needs to take a stand on salaries

Dear editor In early January, I sent an email to all directors in the CVRD. It was regarding how the CVRD is going to handle our coming tax rate. I wanted their views. Most ignored me. Mill Bay’s Mike Walker replied and told me the CVRD has established a committee of the board to take up the salary issue, on a systematic basis, so the committee can address long-term solutions to an acknowledged problem. He said he is a member of that committee and will be working to help devise solutions that are respectful of both the taxpayers and staff. I appreciated his

It will all be done in closed session, exactly what only a few directors are against, and contrary to what the public has been demanding for some time. Here we go again. The CVRD has historically only discussed and debated remuneration and compensation issues in closed session. We have now seen the Town of Sidney put in a two-year wage freeze on management staff and the City of Victoria froze the wages of 71 of its non-union staff. Mike Walker says the committee should have something in place by the March budget conclusion. I strongly urge all taxpayers in the CVRD to contact their director and make your views known. My director, Loren Duncan, has been most helpful. I for one will not tolerate another eight-plus % increase like the last go-round and consider between a zero to the rate of inflation to be the only option on the table. If that means wage rollbacks and wage freezes to the CVRD staff, so be it. The CVRD has now posted, on its web site, the Statement of Financial Information and you can now see the numbers for most of the staff remuneration and expenses. Ken Johnson Sahtlam

Mill Bay ferry needs investment

Dear editor Please upgrade the Mill Bay ferry. If it had two larger, faster boats on it, and better docks, it could siphon Saanich’s traffic from the Malahat. Steve Cooley comments submitted at cowichannewsleader.com

So you want a letter published? Here are some tips: Keep it short — 300 words or less; Keep it local — letters raised in response to issues raised in our pages get top priority; Keep it clean — attack the issue, not the individual. You must include your full name, home community and a phone number where we can reach you during office hours. Addresses and phone numbers will not be published. Letters will be edited for clarity, grammar, length and good taste. Name-withheld letters will not be published. We receive more letters than we have space for. Publication is not guaranteed.

For the record Due to an editing error, these two letters ran in our Feb. 26 edition with the names of the writers reversed — each attached to the wrong set of comments. This is the way they should have run. The News Leader Pictorial apologizes for the mistake.

For-profit philosophy does not belong in seniors care

Dear editor Re: Sunridge Place terminations: These facilities should not be run as a business for profit! It is wrong to take advantage of the frail people who need 24-hour care and their families that can no longer care for them just to fatten the pockets of the already rich. This is absolutely appalling to me. Claudine Cloey Evans, Duncan comments submitted at cowichannewleader.com

Changes all about almighty dollar

Dear editor I can almost guarantee the fired workers at Sunridge Place will be able to re-apply and get re-hired if they agree to another pay cut. This is what happened the last time and it should be illegal! Owners also don’t have to pay severance as workers were given more than 60 days notice. They know all the tricks and loopholes and use them to their advantage.In my opinion the owners of Sunridge Place don’t care about the residents or staff, and it’s all about the almighty dollar. Sue Litster, Youbou comments submitted at cowichannewleader.com

How to reach us We want to hear your opinion on just about any matter of local interest. Here’s how to send it to us: • Email your thoughts to editor@cowichannewsleader.com • Mail your letter to Unit 2, 5380 Trans-Canada Highway, Duncan B.C., V9L 6W4 • Fax it to us at 250-746-8529 • Log onto www.cowichannewsleader.com and post your comments directly underneath the story that caught your interest.

lthough it sounds like a good idea, this one might be from the careful-what-you-wish-for department. Earlier this year, the City of Duncan adopted a resolution calling on the provincial government “to begin a consultation to design a Social Policy Framework for British Columbia.” The vote came after a group called the Board Voice Society of B.C. made a presentation to Duncan’s city council. “It’s time for the province to have a coordinated approach to social policy to better focus and co-ordinate our resources to help individuals and communities thrive,” Duncan Mayor Phil Kent said in a news release about the vote distributed by Board Voice B.C. Just who, or what, is Board Voice B.C.? Its vision statement sounds reasonable enough: “A clear and effective voice for volunteer community-based boards supporting high quality social services and strong vibrant communities.” Its chairman is Michael Davis, former president of Vancouver’s Non-Partisan Association, a long-standing political organization in that city. Board Voice B.C. has dozens of members from most regions of the province, generally non-profit organizations that do good work in social services delivery. Oddly, Board Voice B.C. has no member organizations in our region (Nanoose Bay to Deep Bay). That may speak volumes about the cohesiveness of our region’s non-profit groups, led by the Society of Organized Services (SOS) and the Salvation Army. “We are in an enviable position here,” says Renate Sutherland, executive director of the SOS. “We collaborate very well here. We aren’t fighting for the same dollar like they are in other jurisdictions.” Back to our original thought. Is the City of Duncan trying to be a bigger player in the delivery of social services? In these days of downloading, we’re not sure any municipality wants to poke that bear. It’s our understanding that municipalities have a difficult enough time funding their base responsibilities (potholes and parks, etc.) Or perhaps Duncan feels the need to do that, and to solicit the advice and help of Board Voice B.C., because they don’t enjoy the expertise and togetherness our nonprofits provide. Either way, we should feel fortunate in Parksville-Qualicum Beach. John Harding is the editor of the Parksville-Qualicum Beach News.

y February 1980 and after a hiatus of several years, it seemed musical theatre was on the upswing in Cowichan: rehearsals were about to begin for Pip, a musical written by Duncan’s Michael Crosbie, based on Charles Dickens’ novel Great Expectations. According to show producer Christine Proctor, auditions brought aspiring actors, singers, dancers and musicians from as far away as Courtenay and Victoria. Cast in major roles in the show directed by Bindon Kinghorn were Robert Hazard as Magwidge; Jim Winfrey as Joe Gargery; and Vera Auchinachie playing Mrs. Joe. The role of Pip as a boy went to Art Blundell; while Don Marwood was cast as Pip the elder. The writer’s daughter Nicole Crosbie was young Estelle, and Valerie Baker would play older Estella. Jean Davis was cast as Miss Haversham. Others in the troupe were Danny Hughes, Mark Tibando, Bert Johnston, Kate Walsh, Greg Blundell, Harry Cossey, Bill Cockburn and Barbara Desprez. Meanwhile, January Players were offering Heaven Can Wait – directed by Arlene Blundell. Included in the cast were Mark Ribando, Tim Moir, Dave Scotthorne, Greg Anderson, Sarah Wilson and Danna Mattin.

Sponsors help make trip

Still, slalom is the favorite of oneleg racers as “it’s where we can carry the most speed,” he said. Luscombe’s paralympic team gets gear discounts from suppliers, dropping ski prices from about $1,100 a pair to $700. Sponsors help too. His personal sponsor is Vancouver International Airport (YVR). The team’s benefactors are Cisco Systems, Audi, Sport Chek, and Hermes Bank. Through the Canadian Paralympic Committee , Sochi flights and hotel tabs are paid. The hosting Russians will lay on the food. But there’s no sponsor for his family. A recent fundraiser at Just Jake’s, a silent auction to help pay

their way to cheer him on, raised thousands. “It’s pretty cool,” said Hannah. “It’ll be a good experience for our family.” Her brother’s Sochi experience starts after Italy’s World Cup finals Feb. 24 to 27. He hoped Sochi’s snow isn’t the slushy, sticky stuff he rode last year, yielding slow times. Luscombe’s focused on Sochi races March 8 (downhill), ninth (super-G), 11 (super-combo), 13 (slalom), and 15 (giant slalom). His Russian is zilch. He hasn’t watched Dr. Zhivago, and doesn’t drink much vodka. But Luscombe hasn’t ruled out meeting President Vladimir Putin in Sochi. “I don’t know; we’ll see.”

t’s hard to quench the classical heat of Kostour and Hensley. But 50 centimetres of snow can apparently turn the truck. The Feb. 23 St. Michael’s Present performance of violinist Tatiana Kostour and guitarist Douglas Hensley had to be cancelled because of the steady fall of fluffy white crystals. But the event has already been

rescheduled for this Sunday. The same musicians will play the same program at the same time (2 p.m.) in the same place (St. Michael’s Church in downtown Chemainus) — just a week later. The Latin fire of Italian composer Niccolò Paganini and Argentine composer Ástor Piazzolla will now bookend a century of music on Mar. 2. The Iskra violin and guitar duo

will perform a selection of works from the early 19th through the late 20th centuries, including duos by Paganini, Satie, Saint-Saëns, Piazzolla, Coulthard, and Rebay, event promo material states. The afternoon will include the usual artists meet-and-greet after the performance. Tickets are $15 in advance from the usual outlets or $20 at the door. Call 250-748-8383 for information.

192 athletes from Vancouver Island - Central Coast competed at the 2014 BC Winter Games bringing home 44 medals. Thank you to the coaches, officials, volunteers, and families who support these growing champions. See photos, videos and results at

Hard driving mainstream jazz comes to Crofton

ON STAGE

If original mainstream jazz is your thing, then Sunday afternoon is the time and Crofton is the place. The drummer-led Jon Miller Quartet will perform its hard-driving repertoire at the Crofton Hotel Pub on Sunday as the latest installment of the Sunday afternoon jazz series. The Victoria-based band, with Monik Nordine on saxophones, Rob Cheramy on guitar and James

Young on bass, is influenced by the likes of guitarist John Scofield, the early fusion of Miles Davis, Brian Blade, Jessica Williams, Gil Evans as well as many that blur the boundaries of the jazz realm, according to its web site. The quartet is working on lots of new music with a follow-up to its 2009 debut CD Orchidology in the works.

Its repertoire “is now by turns more playful, darker and diverse than in the past, incorporating influences from sources both within and outside the jazz vein including fusion and world music,” the web site says. The show runs Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Crofton Hotel Pub. Admission is $10. For information, call 250-324-2245.

othing boosts confidence like surviving performing in the Cowichan Music Festival. Joyce Scott, co-owner of Carlson’s School of Dance, said the 65th-annual CMF lent soaring self-assurance to thousands of performers of all ages, abilities and disciplines, who hit the boards starting Feb. 11. While adjudication of the festival’s regular routines has wrapped, organizers were busy at press time deciding who will appear in CMF’s highlights concerts in the Cowichan Theatre Sunday at 1:30 p.m., and Wednesday at 7 p.m. But reaching that spotlight, or maybe a slot at June’s provincials, isn’t really the name of the performing game. “For a little, or a big, person to get on our fabulous stage to perform is a big step in a lot of their lives; some are confident and used to it, but for some it’s their first time,” she said. Scott saluted good attendance at the festival’s various venues. She was most familiar with dance action — more than 100 Carlson students alone – in ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, street, tap, musical theatre and

modern stage. Respective dance adjudicators were James Gnam, Julio Fuentes, Carlo Atienza, and Janice Tooby-MacDonald. “Dancers learn to work together as a team,” Scott said. “Their minds have to be sharp; they have to learn the choreography and overcome nerves.” Jitters were also faced by performers in instruments (woodwinds, brass and bands), strings, piano, vocal-choral (classical and musical theatre), plus speech arts. “Parents of speech artists said to stand up and speak on a topic is so confidence building if you can get past the ‘I’m too afraid’ step, and out of your comfort zone,” said Scott. That zone was stretched by constructive comments from CMF 65’s pro adjudicators, explained Scott, citing dance work. “It was amazing. The ones I heard all gave encouraging comments, and gave them something to work on as a critique.” Students nine years and younger are non-competitive but still get an adjudication. “Teachers get that adjudication sheet, and talk with students about the comments in depth ‚ made by someone else.” Dance attendance was heavy, especially during the hip-hop night Feb. 23 where pupils of

Carlsons’ A.J. Kambere, and Hannah Schneider, hit the stage. Turn-out at CMF’s dance master classes, led by adjudicators, was packed too. “They had 18 in the ballet intermediate class, which was huge,” said Scott, returning to confidence smarts. “Even if you don’t agree with adjudication placement, the festival is for the experience.” A new bursary award from the Cowichan Valley Performing Arts Foundation is among many being presented at the end of the festival hosting youth to senior competitors. Most study privately with val-

ley teachers toward competing in the demanding CMF, led by Leslie Sjoberg’s team. The B.C.’s are set for Penticton from June 3 to 7. Cowichan’s three-week, volunteer-run festival is unique as it gets no regular annual grant funding. Instead, it’s backed by ticket sales, plus donations from families, individuals and businesses providing awards and services. Other revenues come from chocolate-bar and souvenir sales. For details on the highlights concerts, call the theatre’s ticket centre at 250-748-7529.

Chemainus seniors go Way Out West Different: Country themes and memories power centre’s spring variety show Lindsay Chung

News Leader Pictorial

T

he Chemainus Seniors’ Drop-In Centre will bring you back to the Wild West during its upcoming musical show, Way Out West. Choreographer Alma Hughes says Way Out West, which features a cast of about 35 and runs March 14 to 16, is quite a different show than what the seniors’ centre offers each year. This is the story of an older couple who live on a ranch, who are reading a diary and going back in their memories to when they first came to this town, she explained. “Each memory has a scene, so you can see their memories all the way through,” she said. Lesley Lambert, who is directing the show with Jo Kelly, was raised with country and western music, and she always thought she wanted to do a show about

western themes. “I thought I wanted it to be about couples’ lives,” she said. “This basically goes from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Johnny Cash to Shania Twain, so we have a real mix.” As the performances near, Hughes says everything is going well. “A lot of talented men have painted and decorated the scenery for us; the talent in the seniors’ centre isn’t just performing,” she noted. “It’s all done here at the seniors’ centre, so anyone who wants to join us, there’s always something to do.” Cast members sing, dance and act, and Hughes says they have some wonderful singers from the choir. “It’s so much fun,” said Margaret Maltby, a member of the chorus. “I think if the audience has as much fun as we are having in rehearsals, it’s going to be a knockout show.” “It’s great to get out here with so many people,” said Gail O’Hara, a

member of the chorus. “There’s so much talent.” Many talented seniors are performing on stage, but there are also many people working behind the scenes, making the scenery, costumes and props. “It’s a real concerted effort for everyone who wants to be in it,” said Lambert. “Everyone puts the time in and hopefully enjoys the time they put in, and it’s great.” The Chemainus Seniors’ Drop-In Centre presents Way Out West Friday, March 14 at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 15 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 16 at 2 p.m. at 9824 Willow St. The shows are reserved seating, and tickets, which are $15 each, can be purchased Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Chemainus Seniors’ Drop-In Centre. If those times do not work for you, you can call Lambert at 250-924-4865 and she will arrange to meet you at the centre at another time.

H.W. Wallace 5285 Polkey Rd. 250-701-0001 ARMSTRONG, Lenore Lenore died peacefully on Sunday February 23, 2014 in Duncan, BC. She was born on April 11, 1939 in Swan River, Manitoba. Predeceased by her husband Jim in 1977, Lenore is survived by her son Kevin (Melanie) Armstrong of Calgary and their two sons Trajan (Bryanne) Ogden and Kemper Ogden and her daughter Melody (Dale) Marat of Shawnigan Lake and their two daughters Delaney and Cassidy Marat. Lenore is also survived by her siblings Bob (Melba) Tibble of Swan River, Ted (Betty) Tibble of Calgary, Irene Schell of Winnipeg and Gwen (Dave) Sigurdson of Swan River along with her numerous nephews and nieces in which she cherished. Born and raised in Swan River, MB once Mom finished school she moved to the big city of Winnipeg in which she met and fell deeply in love with our dad Jim Armstrong. They married and soon Kevin arrived to the party. Dad’s journalism career moved the family to Calgary and a few years later Melody was born. Mom excelled as an administrator and worked in Calgary at Burns Foods, Wickam Industries and Clarkson Gordon. One of her career highlights was her work and dedication to the 1988 Calgary Olympics Arts Festival. After her contract with the Olympics ended, Mom packed up and moved to Victoria. Quickly, Lenore found employment with BC Systems in which she enjoyed the new challenges and friendships. Mom retired in 2004 and moved to Duncan in 2008 to be closer to her granddaughters. Mom loved being Grandma Lenore and Delaney and Cassidy always knew Grandma was close by! Mom enjoyed volunteering and over years helped with Jazz Festivals, Curling Bonspiels and other events. But it was in recent years she treasured the friendships she made at the Cowichan Valley Senior Centre where she sang in the choir and helped serve lunch on Mondays. When Mom was not running around with her grandchildren or volunteering, as an avid reader, you would find her with a good book or working on he Times Colonist crossword.

Gerhard Brauer, Doctor of Education July 14, 1944 – January 13, 2014 Gerhard was a visionary, he had a passion for the health and well being of future generations and a keen interest in teaching, philosophy, social reform, sustainability to name a few. He started his professional life in New Zealand with the World Health Organization, then back in BC with National Defence, Workman’s Compensation, VIHA and University of Victoria, retiring in 2010. Gerhard had a tremendous impact on his students, many were to say that he taught them the most important lesson of all and that was critical thinking. He was also a talented artist and a sensitive poet. Gerhard leaves his much loved sons Chris (Paula) and Ben (Jenn) and his grandsons Nicholas and Adam, as well as sisters Margrit and Erika (Jim) Sawyer and brother Herb (Michi) and best friends Anne and Jim. There will be a private family gathering at a later date.

GARY, Calvin Ernest Nov 24, 1938 - Feb 20, 2014 The family of Calvin Ernest Gary is deeply saddened to announce his sudden passing at the age of 75 in Duncan on Thursday Feb 20, 2014, after a nine year struggle with Alzheimer’s. He is survived by his wife of 36 years (Linda), their sons Reed (Erika), Colin (Julie) and Mason (Amy), his daughters Alyson (Regina) and Lisa (Tucson), and 11 grandchildren. He was predeceased by his sister Carole, and is survived by his sisters Myrna, Janet and Judy. He was born in Flin Flon on Nov 24, 1938 and lived in both Regina and Calgary before settling in Duncan in 1984. While still in his teens Cal learned to fly and bought a Panther motorcycle, and these two passions continued until his late years. Being an entrepreneur, he started, ran and sold various businesses in Cowichan Valley, including Great Fermentations and Caledonian Water Systems. He had an imagination for invention and a quick and quirky sense of humour that we greatly miss. A Celebration of Life will be held at Bethel Baptist Church, 463 Ypres Street, Duncan at 1pm on Saturday March 1, 2014. Heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Sunridge Place for their loving care of Cal. Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society in lieu of flowers.

Cowichan girls beaten in challenge at Carihi

C

owichan Thunderbirds senior girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team had one last shot at making the North Island tournament, but it fell short. The T-Birds couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a sustained attack going, according to coach Jim Nugent, and lost 61-39 at Campbell River to Carihi. The game obviously didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go the way Cowichan had hoped and being short two players didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was certainly not from a lack of effort but due somewhat to nerves, inexperience and Carihi playing better,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; pointed out Nugent. Crystal Brandt was the leading scorer for Cowichan with nine points and Sartaj Dale had six. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a disappointing end to our league play but the girls made huge strides and stuck together through the struggles,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; offered Nugent. Cowichan finished fifth in the league standings and had a chance in the game to unseat Carihi, which sat in fourth. But Carihi obviously maintained its position. The T-Birds also played an exhibition game against Duncan Christian School Feb. 18 and prevailed 62-44. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an exciting game for our play-

ers and the fans, as DCS would never quit and played hard right until the end,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; observed Nugent. Ashton Aumen was the leading scorer with 17 points, Robin Thomas had her best game of the year with 16 and Brandt tallied 11. â&#x20AC;˘ Brentwood Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basketball team overcame an opening loss to St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to beat Edward Milne, Shawnigan Lake and Parkland in consecutive games for third place in the South Island AA tournament. Brentwood beat Shawnigan for the first time in four meetings this season, sparked by local product Tajzha Doman who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play in the previous three games. An inspirational speech from headmaster Bud Patel sparked the girls to play their best basketball of the season in their 61-54 victory over Shawnigan Lake and 55-49 win against Parkland. The results qualified the team for the Island tournament at Mark Isfeld. During the Mid-Island League, Brentwood finished in the middle of the three teams at 2-2. Shawnigan Lake was undefeated and Gulf Islands winless in four games. Shawnigan held a 32-30 lead on Brentwood after three quarters before pulling away in the last league meeting of the rivals. Brentwood beat Gulf Islands 38-25.

Difficult defeat for third place

T-Birds head into Islands ready to roll

Brentwood close: Lead against Highland holds up until the last 30 seconds

Overcoming adversity: Vanier stages a rally in Saturday’s North Island final but Cowichan pulls away

News Leader Pictorial

I

t was there for the taking, but Brentwood College’s senior boys’ basketball team couldn’t quite grab onto third place in the Island championships at Lambrick Park to earn a spot in the provincial playdowns. Brentwood led for most of Saturday’s third-place game against Vanier. The margin was eight with five minutes to go. But Highland fought back in the late stages and took the lead with 30 seconds remaining. The 62-58 loss was a heartbreaker for Brentwood because it meant no trip to the B.C. tournament at the Langley Events Centre. “I’m not used to not having anything to do at this time of the year,’’ quipped Brentwood coach Blake Gage. “I’m disappointed. It was right there for us. We definitely played well enough to win. “They hit some huge shots down the stretch.’’ It was still a great tournament for Brentwood and the players gave it their all right to the end. Brentwood opened with a tight 63-59 triumph over John Barsby of Nanaimo and then fell 79-38 to one of the two South Island powerhouses, Lambrick Park, before bouncing back to defeat Kwalikum 68-52 that led to the titanic battle with Highland for the final qualifying spot. Paul Lee, an eventual all-star team selection, iced the first game against Barsby with two late free throws. Against Lambrick Park, “the guys played really well,’’ said Gage. “The score’s a little deceiving.’’ Knowing Brentwood was going to have two tough games Saturday, Gage rested some of his regulars. “A bunch of our Grade 10s came in and played their hearts out,’’ he said. “I loved the energy. The guys on the floor never stopped.’’ Skylar Rustad was on fire in the Kwalikum game, hitting six of seven shots from beyond the arc and finishing with 19 points. Lee, who had a very strong tournament, nailed 14. The goal of reaching the provincials didn’t quite materialize against Highland. St. Michael’s nipped Lambrick 74-72 in the final. Shawnigan Lake School has fought through injuries all season and bowed out in two games, losing 57-35 to Highland and 60-37 to Kwalikum.

verlapping curling events didn’t pose any problem for the valley’s Wes Craig, other than the physical impossibility of being in two places at the same time. Craig, 55, and his Victoria teammates, third Blair Cusack, second Tony Anslow and lead Kevin Britt, went undefeated in the B.C. senior men’s curling championships at Courtenay to win a spot in the nationals at Yellowknife March 20 to 30. “I’ve never been up there,’’ said Craig. “I’m looking forward to it.’’ The last time Craig made it to the nationals in Ottawa four years ago, the championship was won by Mark Johnson, who will be at Yellowknife again but skipping a different rink from Alberta. Craig and company beat defending cham-

pion Craig Lepine of Peace Arch in the B.C. final 8-5. Craig scored deuces in the fourth, sixth and eighth ends to secure the win. For seven straight games, Craig’s team had the hammer. “One of the things they do in curling, we draw for the hammer before the game,’’ said Craig. “My team, we actually practiced this several times.’’ Practice obviously made perfect. At the same time, Craig had a mixed team with Sarah Wark, Miles Craig and Michelle Allen that qualified for the B.C. finals to be held in Duncan March 13 to 16. Neil Dangerfield filled in for Craig while he was at the B.C. seniors. But Craig returned to wrap things up. “I showed up Sunday and played the last two games and we won them both,’’ said Craig. The team went 1-1 the previous day under Dangerfield’s command.

at Vanier. The T-Birds knocked off No. 4 Alberni 78-44 while No. 3 Vanier upset No. 2 Dover Bay 8373 in the opening round Friday. Dover Bay went on to edge Alberni 68-60 for third place while Cowichan took top spot in the North with a 71-63 victory over Vanier Saturday. Josh Charles led the scoring against Alberni with 26 points. Tyler Hudson stepped up his production to 14, Jordy Frost had 10 and Braydon Aumen and Travis McDonald contributed eight apiece. “It was pretty good for the most part,’’ said Cowichan coach Sandeep Heer. The final result of the Vanier game being just an eight-point win was a bit deceiving, he said, because Cowichan led by more than 20 points at one stage. “We lost a bit of momentum,’’ said Heer. “They made a bit of a run. “The kids had to battle through that adversity of the other team coming back.’’ But the mission was accomplished and “our guys picked it up and played a little harder,’’ said Heer. “I hope we can do that at the Islands.’’ The No. 4 team in the South, Belmont, was Cowichan’s first opponent in the Island championships at Alberni Thursday. Claremont goes in as South 1, Mount Douglas 2 and Oak Bay 3. Only the top two teams advance to the provincial championships at Langley.

The open concept worked well for the ladies involved in the Kerry Park men’s curling bonspiel. Three ladies shared in the glory on the Creative Woodcraft A event winners, with Christine MacDonald, Lorraine Gagnon and Christine Fishwick joining Scott MacDonald.

Kristi Zinkiew was part of the Island Bakery B event champs with Randy Zinkiew, Mike Croft and Brent Anderson. The Island Moving C event winners included: Doug Gamble, Victor Gamble, Brent Winnitoy and Richard Odo. Al Brown, Dick McCarthy, Phil Chutka and Peter Henne won the United Floors D event.

The bonspiel — open to curlers of any age and either gender — was a huge success, with 16 teams split into four groups. A three-game round robin series was then played with a Brandon draw and, according to finish, teams were pitted against another group for a one-game playoff to determine Sunday event entries.

The Victoria HarbourCats of the West Coast League announced they’re going to play an exhibition game in Duncan against the Langley Blaze of the Pacific International League, a team containing former college and ex-pro players. “We think this is an exciting day for us and youth baseball in Duncan,’’ said HarbourCats’ general manager Jim Swanson. “It’s our pleasure to be at a great facility like this.’’ Swanson said it will be a nine-inning game with good old-fashioned wooden bats and “our franchise is very proud to have a lot of Canadians and Islanders on our roster.’’ The game will be part of Duncan’s season-end wind-up, with Peewee and Mosquito teams playing earlier in wooden bat games followed by

Baseball seems a long way off, especially after the recent winter weather that hit the valley. But it was the hot topic Wednesday, with the Victoria HarbourCats announcing an exhibition game here on June 22. Above, mascot Harvey, general manager Jim Swanson, Duncan Junior Baseball president Kevin Olender, marketing director Brad Norris-Jones and Fraser Campbell gather for the announcement. Right, Harvey and Swanson are pumped about being in Duncan. team awards. The HarbourCats and Blaze will take the field at 11:30 a.m. for warm-ups in preparation for the 1:05 p.m. game. Nicole Post, who grew up close to Evans Park, is the HarbourCats’ ticket manager and in charge of social media. “I grew up playing sports in this community,’’ she said. “To be able to bring my team here really means a lot. I’m honoured to be a part of the organization.’’

“I’m just excited we have this day to bring this up,’’ said Kevin Olender, Duncan Junior Baseball Association president. “I think it’s going to be an awesome day.’’ Olender said there is a cost involved to bring the HarbourCats here, but the plan is to do fundraising and people can see the game free of charge “so we can make it affordable for all families to come.’’ A donation box will be set up at the field to help cover costs as well.

Olender said a decision will be made by April 1 whether or not there will be a charge for the game. Brad Norris-Jones, the HarbourCats’ marketing director, said it’s a great opportunity for the team to expand its fan base and showcase the talents of the players. “Last year, we were a new team,’’

Capturing medals a delight for athletes

he said. “We had to show everyone how we did. We want to take it to the next level. “In the States, a lot of these exhibition games happen. Langley’s a very good baseball team. It’s a show. People will see a high-calibre opposing team to play against the HarbourCats.’’

B.C. Winter Games: Small group takes a big haul from Mission

Valley athletes winning medals at the B.C. Winter Games in Mission include: Bree Castle (above), Todd Heard (right) and Darby McInytre (far right).

oung valley athletes were no doubt inspired by the Olympic Winter Games to win their own collection of medals at the B.C. Winter Games in Mission. Darby McIntyre of Salt Spring Island, a member of the Duncan Dynamics Gymnastics Club, practically needed a truck to bring home her haul of medals that included a gold on beam, gold on bars, gold all-around, silver on vault and a bronze for the Zone 6 team. “I was really excited, but I kind of knew I would do good in some ways,’’ said McIntyre. “I’m a Level 5, competing Level 4. But I didn’t know I would do as well as I did.’’ McIntyre overcame some adversity along the way to do that well. “I got a fever, a cold and a sore throat which I had to compete with but I put in all my effort and I did it,’’ she noted. “I’m very proud of myself, not just because

I won, but because I pulled through and didn’t give up — even with a fever.’’ Dynamics’ teammate Keerstin Arden captured a silver medal on the beam, a great effort considering it’s her first year in Level 4. Meanwhile, Todd Heard of Duncan won a pair of silver medals for freestyle skiing in moguls and slopestyle. Bree Castle of Queen Margaret’s School got into the act with

a bronze in the individual 6K girls’ junior biathlon. She was also fifth in the sprint competition, covering 4K. Anna Clark from Duncan claimed a bronze medal in judo for women’s under 52 kg. Cobble Hill’s Jeremy Perkins came ninth in men’s under 66 kg judo. Jacob Marcelic from Lake Cowichan, who trains at the Fernando Correia School of Karate, received a bronze medal in the

boys’ +55 kg kumite event. Lake Cowichan’s Katie Ferguson just missed a medal with a fourth-place finish on the Zone 6 female hockey team. Sion Griffiths of Cowichan Bay shot the second highest score on the second day of archery and fourth highest per 20 rounds overall, but it wasn’t quite enough to launch him into the top four total scores needed to make the medal round.

“The Guys Who Know Cars”

The man from BMW once called me a hooker. Surprisingly, I wasn’t that offended. I actually laughed at such a descriptor, as did everyone else around me. I didn’t feel so bad because I wasn’t the only one in the group labelled thusly at the brand’s Driver Training; a full day of driving 3 Series sedans (back then) to improve our own car control. I didn’t have too many years of driving experience back then but I unfortunately I had picked up a few bad habits on the road. What’s a ‘hooker’, according to the instructors at the German automaker’s training? Someone who hooks his or her hand into the steering wheel when making a turn. It’s a big boo-boo and not an effective way to drive. It’s also totally unsafe should an accident occur in the process. Needless to say, pointing out the ‘hooker’ in me caused me to change my habits for the better. And in the most recent installment of learning car control with BMW, no such noun was used when relating to my technique. Thank goodness. It’s minus 15 degrees at the ICAR track in Mirabel, Quebec. The sun is out and there’s a lineup of all-new 435i coupes just begging to be driven. Some are equipped with the brand’s

all-wheel drive system. Some are rearwheel drive. Regardless, I’ll have my way with both configurations by the end of the day, so to speak. The adventure is better known as the Winter Driver Training program, offered exclusively at the ICAR location. The day starts out with an in-class session that goes over theory and what will be executed throughout the various exercises. It’s kept relatively short so we have more drive time. It’s mentioned that we’ll be practicing manouevres with and without electronic help, to put both power and performance to the test. Oh yeah. Proper seating position is outlined when we initially get behind the wheel. Then we’re off. You might ask what is the point behind putting one of BMW’s latest products sideways on an ice track in subzero temperatures. My initial answer is only three letters long and to the point: fun. But that’s only a byproduct of what the impetus behind the program is; a program that started back in 1977 and is now offered in 35 countries. The main goal is safety. It’s designed to introduce drivers to techniques that might help correct the car if it is not doing what you want it to for whatever reason. For example, if your wheels are pointed in one direction, but your car is going straight ahead, what should

you do? That’s called understeer. The instinctual thing to do is keep adding more steering, but that won’t help. Ease off the throttle and try to straighten your wheel so your tires can regain grip. Or, if you feel the back end of the car breaking loose, how do you wrangle it in? You countersteer and don’t lift off the throttle. It sounds easier said than done, but the techniques do work! Heck, if you knock over a few cones, no one will judge you either. It’s all part of the process. There are also dynamic braking exercises that teach you how the car reacts when you have ABS, and what you can do in these conditions. You’ll even learn reverse 180s. Philippe Létourneau is the head instructor of the program and says, “People learn a lot more when they’re having fun.” I agree. He also mentions that if people walk away from the course with a couple of newly established driving habits that make them overall a safe driver, that’s ideal. However, if your face doesn’t feel stiff from smiling, or your abs don’t hurt from laughing, perhaps you weren’t trying hard enough. What’s not to like about that?

Volvo circles the wagon for success pass in the low speed limit state park! Volvo says it will hit 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds if given the lead foot treatment. (The T6 in sedan tells a slightly racier story. Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating but only a little and I look forward pressing the pedal to the metal where I can legally do so.) The T5 fuel economy ratings fare well in comparison with the market competition – 9.4/6.3/8.1 L/100km (city/ hwy/combined). These numbers are squeezed out of the power plant with the help of the standard engine stop/ start system and the efficient new eight-speed transmission, which slips into a neutral coasting mode when you lift your foot off the gas. Inside, the instrument panel stretches the span of the car and features an attractive floating centre console, which mixes good looks with functionality. Swedes are safety conscious, of course, and that means lane change, cross traffic, blind spot warnings and alerts. The front seating is comfortable if a little soft on a long drive. Rear seating ditto and headroom is good despite the coupe-style slope of the rear. And a good view of the road fore, fore aft and side is enjoyed by all. Great stowage room in the rear. The 40/20/40 split second row folds flat to provide enough space to move a small apartment’s furniture. Just kidding but you get the picture.

By Keith Morgan

Las Vegas, Nevada – Volvo is hitching some of its revival hopes to a wagon – the 2015 Volvo V60 Sportswagon. Its grille is clearly all-Volvo but those typically boxy looks that characterized the make from your dad’s day are gone. In looks it’s a design variation of the S60 sedan and it will be a welcome sight for loyalists of the Swedish brand, having witnessed the demise here of the V50 and midsize V70 wagons. The wagon featured recently along with the S60 and XC60 crossover at a launch event in the Nevada desert. The Volvo execs present proudly talked about their new Drive-E powertrains, developed thanks to the megabucks available now that the company is owned by the Chinese Geely Automotive. Ford ownership may now be retreating in Volvo’s rearview mirror but it is still beholden to the US manufacturer for the platforms upon which these three 2015 models ride. That will change later this year when the fullsize XC90 crossover is set to sit atop Volvo’s so-called Scalable Product Architecture platform. Model year 2014 saw a refresh of all three midsize Volvo models showing in the desert so this was truly about the new engines. The Drive-E family of gas, diesel and hybrid (the latter not yet, but soon) engines are built around a single, 2.0-litre four-cylinder powerplant. It’s a brave gamble, worthy of Vegas, when you ponder the XC90 relying on such a small engine. Asked if this were a safe bet, the Swedes just smiled and promised the performance of the four-cylinder configuration will equal their big brothers by using such technologies as direct fuel injection, turbo-

charging, supercharging and . . . electrification. Here in the Great White North, just the two gas engines will be offered initially – the new turbocharged T5 pumps out 240 horsepower, while the turbo’ed and supercharged T6 adds another 62 horses. The base front-wheel-drive V60 T5, with a new eight-speed automatic transmission, will set you back $39,800. Volvos have never been cheap. The other three Sportswagons will continue to use existing powerplants, six-speed automatic transmissions and Haldex all-wheeldrive systems. Did a little shopping off the strip in the XC60, which came into its own, its cavernous rear swallowing up my bulky purchases. I’ll reserve comments on the crossover until I’ve had a chance to put it through its paces in BC. However, I got much more seat time in the V60 and S60 (S60 with T5 $37,750. T6 $42,850), taking in the awe-inspiring beauty of the Valley of Fire state park and Red Rock Canyon. The T5-equipped wagon is a smooth operator in performance and ride. And while you won’t burn rubber at the green light, it will take off when necessary . . . not that we got any chance to

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Can Toyota’s Tundra ride alongside heavyweight brands like Ford, GM or Ram?

Tugging at the tails of top selling trucks If there is one segment of the auto business that takes dynamite to get people to change brands, it’s the full-size pickup truck category, I’m sure most of us know of someone who is a “Ford guy” or The Tundra is “Chevy diehard” owner, even as capable as and getting him or her to move to a new many of the domestic truck would be almost brands but in some impossible. ways it still has a way It wasn’t until the last to go to truly be an Toyota Tundra was introduced in 2007 that alternative to Ford, Toyota was a real conGM and Ram. tender. That 2007 Tundra and this refreshed 2014 Zack Spencer model are designed, engineered and even built in America, helping to pull loyal domestic buyers away. The Tundra is even as capable as many of the domestic brands but in some ways it still has a way to go to truly be an alternative to Ford, GM and Ram.

‘‘

is a step up from the lower trims but not nearly as supple and luxurious as the new batch of interiors from Ram and GM. Those trucks, in particular, have almost luxury-sedan interiors that make the driver forget they are in a truck. The Tundra, in comparison, is a bit stark, featuring a hard, simple plastic dash and door pieces that don’t compare. The centre screen is smaller than many competitors are, and the screen embedded in the instrument cluster is small. What has been improved is the overall layout of the centre console. The back seat is massive and flips up with just one hand to make room for interior storage. I found the last Tundra to have a very high seating position that limited headroom. This new 2014 seems to have a better seating position, no longer crimping headroom for taller drivers. Drive Powering the Tundra are two V8 gasoline engines. The base model has a 4.6L V8 with 310hp and 327 lb.-ft. of torque. The larger 5.7L has 381hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. This is one area that the Toyota cannot compete; there is no V6 offered and no diesel (Ram only), which the domestic makers do offer. By limiting the available engine options and not having a heavy-duty model that will certainly diminish the

number of domestic buyers willing to give Tundra a try. On the road, I was surprised at just how rough the ride is in comparison to the all-new GM trucks, which really are like driving a big sedan. I would also place the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 a very close second in ride comfort. The Tundra is choppy on rough roads and the noise level is on the high side. Toyota claims to have improved ride quality on this refreshed 2014 model but I am not a fan of the ride. Verdict The Tundra is a capable truck. When equipped it can tow up to 4760 kg, which is on the high side in this class. What surprised me the most was the real “trucky” ride. I have had extensive seat time in all three domestic brands over the past year and I have to say that they are best sellers for a reason – the refinement is rather dramatic. The Lowdown Power: 4.6L V8 with 310hp or 5.7L V8 with 381hp Fill-up: 15.8L/11.0L/100km (city/highway 5.6L) Sticker price: $26,750-$54,000 zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca

Looks As part of the 2014 redesign, Toyota went about setting up a slightly different look for each of its trim levels. Sold as an SR5, Limited and Platinum, each has a variation of the oversized front grille. The wheel openings are now larger and squarer, framing wheel sizes ranging from 18-inches on the SR5 and Limited and 20-inches on the Platinum. The Tailgate has a soft open feature, stopping it from slamming down, that is fantastic but there is no side step or ladder into the bed the way Ford and the new GM trucks have. Sold as a regular car, double cab or Crew Cab, there is a model for most buyers. Inside Just as the outside was redesigned to have a unique character for each trim, the inside mimics this idea. The Platinum model I tested is covered with a diamond pattern, or quilted look used on the leather seatbacks, side door inserts and dash front panel. It
