Families await the return of warship’s crew Daniel Palmer News staff
Hundreds of families and friends of Royal Canadian Navy personnel in the Capital Region are waiting anxiously for the safe return of their loved ones after HMCS Protecteur caught fire last week off the coast of Hawaii. Protecteur had been scheduled to dock at CFB Esquimalt today (March 5), but a Feb. 27 engine room fire stranded the ship in the middle of the Pacific ocean, about 600 kilometres from Pearl Harbour. “There’s no comment on how the crew are getting home yet,” said Saanich resident Devon MacKenzie, whose partner, Leading Seaman Curt Korolyk, helped battle the blaze onboard Protecteur. “The only contact I’ve had with (Curt) has been about three minutes on a satellite phone so that’s been hard,” MacKenzie said. “I only had time to ask him if he’s OK, that sort of thing. He was fairly shaken.” There were about 300 people, including 17 family members, onboard the naval supply ship when the fire broke out Thursday. Those family members were evacuated to U.S.S. Michael Murphy and returned to Hawaii the following day. About 20 crew suffered minor injuries including smoke inhalation, exhaustion and dehydration while battling the blaze and were treated onboard. Protecteur and its 279 crew were being towed back to Pearl Harbour Monday afternoon by the U.S. fleet ocean tug USNS Sioux. Last August, Protecteur suffered cosmetic damage when she collided with HMCS Algonquin during a training exercise en route to Hawaii. Both supply ships are slated for retirement in 2015. “I’m just super proud of (the crew),” said MacKenzie, a reporter with the Peninsula News Review. “They really managed to keep it all under control, and obviously the disaster training they had was really worth it.” The Esquimalt Military Family Resource Centre continues to co-ordinate updates and support services for relatives of Protecteur’s crew. They can be reached at 250-363-2640. email@example.com

Spec-nation spins social media trend Acts of kindness counteract online neknominations
Election plans revisit mobile polls
Christine van Reeuwyk
Armed with video cameras, big hearts and a want to make a difference, students from Spectrum community school are conducting random acts of kindness throughout Greater Victoria. The surge of good deeds comes as the school aims to put a positive spin on a dangerous social media trend, known as neknominations. “Neknominations work by you videotaping yourself doing something stupid and then you nominate other friends to do something equal or worse, basically,” said Spectrum teacher Nick Van Iersel. “So we call ours SpecNominations, and the challenge is really straightforward: do something that will leave the world in a better place than you found it. “It came out of a concern of ours around neknominations; we knew some of our kids had been nominated.” Van Iersel launched SpecNominations on Feb. 17 with a video of him paying for a coffee and muffin for five people at McDonald’s. “That is the nicest thing ever,” the McDonald’s employee tells him of his $8.35 purchase. Within two days of Van Iersel posting his video to YouTube students began spreading positive change and posting their own exploits to social media. “One thing that really spoke to us was helping the less fortunate,” said Grade 12 student Pius Cuizon. He and friends Sage Barlow-Young and Jenna Lancaster were nominated by Van Iersel, and the first students to accept the nomination. The trio, along with Cuizon’s sister Eurica who filmed their good deeds, purchased 10 hamburgers and a large pizza, and offered hot food to Victoria’s homeless on a cold February night. “At first I thought it wasn’t a big deal, but I realized at the end of it that a little really does go a long way,” Cuizon said. “As long as you give the best you possibly can and have a heart and want to help others, you can make a difference.” At the end of their video, the Grade 12 students nominated their entire grad class to take on the
Saanich will break new ground come November, approaching students with enhanced voting opportunities in the municipal election. Council last week approved the 2014 Saanich Local Government Elections budget of $285,240 which will include mobile voting for University of Victoria students and a return to mobile polls at seniors residences. “We’re the first to go there,” said Mayor Frank Leonard, of adding UVic to advanced voting locations. A report to council from electoral officer Carrie McPhee, director of legislative services, outlined suggested changes to the voter process this municipal election. The idea for an advance poll at UVic came from informal surveys done at the university and Camosun last year. Camosun students did not express interest. “Students will have to make the decision when they go to register, because it changes the provincial and federal voters list,” Leonard said. McPhee’s election strategy includes $8,000 to reintroduce the mobile voting for senior residences. They were removed last election and replaced with mail-in voting. “Didn’t work,” Leonard said. “She’s reinstating a mobile poll that would drive around to retirement communities.” The cost per registered voter under this budget is $3.38. “It’s reasonable. It’s worth it if we can increase the turnout. Democracy is so precious, anything we can do to encourage people to use it,” Leonard said. “It’ll be interesting to see how many more voters we get.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Less than two hours after seeing the video, Kat Gosselin and Rahim Khan had approached half a dozen homeless people and bought them more than $150 worth of food, sweaters, shoes, socks and a sleeping bag. “We just asked them what they wanted; if there was anything that they needed,” Gosselin said. “They seemed stunned at first. They were so thankful and so happy. It made my day. I was getting jitters buying all the stuff because I was excited to see their reactions.” Victoria police Const. Paul Brookes is involved with the Greater Victoria school district’s Youth for Change and Inclusion
group. It was during a meeting of that group when Van Iersel first pitched the idea of SpecNominations. “Everybody understands the philosophy of giving, but so often they don’t go out and do it. And this kind of movement is giving that extra push to move kids out of their comfort zones and discover how gratifying, how wonderful these kinds of things are,” Brookes said. “It sets them up for life to be those change agents in our community.” Cuizon said he came away from the experience with an even greater understanding of generosity. It doesn’t matter how much or how little you have to give, every-
What are neknominations? n Someone records themself completing a challenge – typically involving drinking a large amount of hard liquor in a short amount of time. Upon completion of the challenge, they nominate other people by name to do the same. They then post the video to social media. n Recent news reports from the United Kingdom indicate police have attributed the alcohol-related deaths of five teenagers to neknominations. n Police in Ontario last week recommended a variety of charges against two teenagers after a video of their neknomination was posted to social media.
one has the potential to make a positive difference in their community, he said. “I find that people over-think giving a lot. You don’t need to be rich to help. We’re all students right now. Just because you don’t have a lot of money shouldn’t stop you from helping other people,” he said. “It feels great to trigger something onto someone to do something different, do something good.” Since launching two weeks ago, SpecNominations have extended to individuals outside of the school’s hallways. Students from other Saanich schools are taking up the challenge, as are Saanich police officers. Gosselin even nominated a friend in the United States. “It just seemed like it was a such a great idea to put a positive spin on neknominations. I have my opinions on how those are unnecessary – it’s really kind of a stupid act. But I thought this would be a great way to make someone’s day,” Gosselin said.

Sally Ann layoffs upset union Christine van Reeuwyk News staff
The BCGEU is calling on the Salvation Army to reinstate workers laid off last week in what the non-profit calls a business decision. “The business decision that was made to eliminate product sorting for Victoria’s distribution centre is rooted in efficiency and sustainability that allows us to continue to serve,” said Kyla Ferns, communications coordinator for the Salvation Army. “The layoffs were a business deci-
sion that was made to eliminate redundancies in jobs being done in different locations.” The union says the Salvation Army National Recycling Operation laid off 10 workers at its recycling centre in Saanich without warning. “These are disappointing actions from an employer who depends on the goodwill of the public and the commitment of its workers,” said BCGEU president Darryl Walker. “These workers deserve to be treated with respect, according the provisions of the collective
agreement signed by the Salvation Army National Recycling Operation.” The union claims the work will now be performed by non-union workers at each thrift store in Victoria and Duncan. “The layoffs were due to an elimination of positions and we are not adding employees or hours as a result of this action,” Ferns said. After meeting with some of the former staff that was laid off, Walker still hopes to address the decision with the Salvation Army. email@example.com
NOTICE OF WATERMAIN FLUSHING In order to maintain satisfactory water quality throughout the distribution system, water main flushing is scheduled to start February 3rd, 2014 until May 2nd, 2014, weather permitting. Business and other customers who wish advance notification of flushing in their immediate area are requested to call Waterworks at 250-475-5481 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday. Any discolouration is temporary and users are asked to minimize consumption if a change in water appearance is noticed. The District of Saanich accepts no liability for inconvenience or damages caused by water use during its flushing program. Requests for notification may also be submitted online at www.saanich.ca. Your cooperation and understanding are appreciated.

Youthful Island leader needed Politics is not a beauty contest, but there is something to be said about youthful enthusiasm, and so far the BC NDP leadership race is looking more like an ad for the Hair Club for Men. It’s not that the grey or follically challenged aren’t necessarily up for the task, NDP needs it’s just that if dynamic leadership the NDP would like a snowball’s to get ahead chance in heck of lighting a fire under voters, it’s got to get a handle on its leadership. If we learned anything from the last election, it’s that leadership is the first important step for the NDP to consider. Perhaps the right woman, or man, for the job is someone brand new with a squeaky clean reputation. Or maybe that person will take a page from Justin Trudeau’s book and lay their faults and past mistakes on the table for all to see. It’s hard for the opposition to take pot shots at you if you take away the ammo before they can load their weapons. The reality of political campaigning unfortunately seems to include the ability for the new leader to get down and dirty – to fight in the trenches so to speak. We saw all too clearly how the ‘nice guy’ approach worked last time. The new NDP leader is going to have to be able to lead with their chin. We think it’s important for an Island MLA to take the position. The party has strong support on the Island and we need good representation at some level of government. Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan is rumoured to be throwing his hat in the ring again, as is Victoria-Swan Lake MLA Rob Fleming, but one real Island dynamo is second term Saanich South MLA Lana Popham, who has yet to hint at a possible leadership run. The NDP needs a dynamic and strong leader who can represent Greater Victoria and the province as well. The higher up our representation is, the better off the people of Vancouver Island will be.

Conventional wisdom on this is that the mining company didn’t try hard enough to establish a working relationship with the Tsilhqot’in. For his part, Taseko CEO Russell Hallbauer says the chiefs refused to meet with him, which isn’t surprising from a group that doesn’t recognize the B.C. forests ministry either. Here’s a sample of the volume of evidence that may determine the future of B.C. Archeological studies presented at trial describe “18 roasting and/ or pit depressions” at Teztan Biny. It’s not clear if these were for seasonal food preparation or for pit houses, which would indicate a more permanent settlement at the lake. Nor is it clear whether these “cultural depressions” have been identified as being of Tsilhqot’in origin. Oral histories are also uncertain. Tsilhqot’in witnesses testified that Teztan Biny has been used in the 20th century as a hunting and fishing camp. The mine was rejected due to ill-defined cultural as well as environmental concerns. B.C. residents could finally see some answers this year. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

No subsidies for Saanich treeplanting program If hard-pressed taxpayers are wondering why spending, taxes and fees are out of control in Saanich, go no further than last week’s News article, “Green up your ’hood” (Feb. 28). Properties are worth many hundreds of thousands of dollars and residents expect Saanich to foot the bill to plant trees on their properties. But not to worry regarding the expense, since the pro-
gram is funded primarily by B.C. Hydro. (Little wonder B.C. Hydro rates are skyrocketing.) Rather than finding ways to increase out-ofcontrol spending and the ever-increasing tax burden on Saanich residents, is it too much to ask this “green” council to give homeowners a break, and attempt to reduce spending? And let community associations stop asking for more so-called free rides, such as tree planting, given the scenario that there is only one taxpayer to deal with all levels of gov-

Support needed in schools to stop bullying Did Travis Price, founder of the antibullying movement in Nova Scotia, realize
the minister of education explaining that they have connected the dots and the unintended consequences for our children are not OK! Breaking the chain of bullying requires support and supervision for children in schools, and cuts to supports and counselling are a direct result of Clark’s decisions while Minister.

that the person in the pink shirt last Wednesday, Christy Clark, was the Minister of Education when funding cuts resulted in significantly less counselling time and fewer adults to supervise and support student behaviour on the school grounds, hallways, in classrooms and at lunch? Of course not. He was just doing his best to be a voice and presence for good. I have spoken with parents who are desperately trying to cope with bullying. I encourage all parents and members of the community to send an email to their MLA, the premier and

Q&A Sport parenting a multi-faceted job Kara Goetze Community Spotlight: FAMILY
next Family April 2
Amid the two weeks of glued-to-the-TV Olympic sports viewing came a CBC production called Raising an Olympian – a look at moms and their roles in nurturing their young sports protégés. “Schmaltzy,” I heard my partner snort, but I was all sniffly-teary so I ignored him. Any sports mom knows damn well her little Olympian would still be playing in the tot pool without her. I was a sports mom for years; swim team, then soccer. This is no small role: it takes fitness (clutch and brake ankle muscles); multi-role playing (everything from alarm-setter to missing-shin-pad-finder); and creative food packing for all Susan Lundy those hours on the road. On the rare occasions there was no swimming or soccer, I’d stare perplexed at the stove, trying to remember what I used to cook for dinner. Swim meets were the ultimate time management nightmares. Beginning at the end of May, we’d load up our bright orange, chlorine-scented VW van and putter to swim meets for the next eight to 10 weekends. Each race took a maximum of two minutes. Each child could race up to six individual races and two relays — for a total of 16 minutes in the water. We left mid-day Friday and returned Sunday night, spending about 55 hours for those 16 minutes. During this time, we found and set up campsites, got to the pool at an ungodly hour, ensured our young athletes ate the right food at the right time, stayed warm (don’t forget the rain) or cool (when the sun blazed), made it to their races, dealt with their losses, wins or disqualifications, found dry towels and got enough sleep. The summer my daughters were seven and eight
we attended a memorable meet in Port Alberni. It started out badly when I forgot a few “essential” items, such as the high-heeled dress-up shoes (so important at a swim meet), and Sierra’s special teeth-whitening toothpaste. Danica haughtily explained that the wording on the toothpaste box amounted to consumer manipulation, and a loud altercation ensued in the campground bathroom. Also, threatening to re-emerge was Danica’s asthma cough, which often gripped her the entire night. She drifted in and out of sleep while she coughed, but the rest of us in the close-quarters van needed earplugs, pillows and thick blankets over our heads to sleep. That night, Danica crawled into the lower bed with me, and Sierra hopped into the top bunk, tossing and turning, jolted awake with each coughing spasm beneath her. Just as things started to settle, Sierra tossed, turned and fell with an enormous crash, face first, from the top bunk. There was a second of silence – then the wailing began as blood oozed from her nose and mouth. I stumbled with Sierra through the dark to the campsite office, where a teenage girl reading a novel stared at us blankly. So I hurried her to the bathroom, gently washed away the blood, found her brand new front teeth still intact and no broken nose. The next day she was proud of her swollen face and swam her races. Later that day, Danica fell on the pavement, scraping legs and arms into a bloody-gravel mess. She too raced. Me? After practicing sports medicine the night before, I became a nutritionist, dishing out timely, healthy food; manager, tracking towels, swim caps and race times; therapist, counselling my kids through good races and bad; and chauffeur, packing up, and sputtering back down highway in time to set the alarm for Monday’s 6 a.m. practice. And Olympians’ moms? You go girls.
“Mompreneur” Kara Goetze is a self-employed Registered Massage Therapist, owner of Burnside Massage Therapy and mother to daughters Danika, 6, Brielle, 4, and Cianna, 2. “For the day to run smoothly I need extra help from my husband, Rob, and parents. Usually our days run like a well-oiled machine, but there are times when you can hear the circus music playing as we try to juggle it all,” Goetze says. “It’s important for me to pick the kids up from school and to see the smiles on their faces when they accomplish a new skill or sport. If it wasn’t for the support of my parents, I would not have that flexibility.”

Amazing Argentina expedition promotes learning Saanich cadet selected for unique travel experience Christine van Reeuwyk News staff
Jayden Worth describes his trip abroad in one word: amazing. The Saanich teen is a Master Warrant Officer with the 2483 Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps and returned in January from the International Army Cadet Expedition in Patagonia, Argentina. At 18 he’s a leader in the local cadet corps, and what stood out for him in Argentina wasn’t the stunning scenery. “You can learn something from everybody,” he said. “It’s a humbling experience. I can learn so much, even
though I was one of the oldest ones on the trip.” The Camosun College marketing student worked his way up through cadets with shorter trips, from weekends away to a week-long regional trip. “I did well on those evaluations, so I think that put me ahead. As well as some of my achievements at the corps level,” he said. Worth was one of 36 cadets from across Canada chosen from hundreds of applicants based on past experience in the expedition program; outstanding fitness level; and his experience as a staff cadet for an Expedition Instructor course last summer. He has also completed the Expedition Advanced training, at Rocky Mountain National Army Cadet Summer Training Centre outside of Cochrane, Alta. The expedition in Argentina was

Inside the spoken word festival
n the time since the Victoria youth poet laureate took on the role this winter, there have been ups, downs and other times the 20-yearold files under “hilarious and weird.” Such was the case when Morgan PurvisBellamano, a former member of Esquimalt High’s Slam Club and one of the organizers of this week’s Victoria Spoken Word Festival, performed for Victoria city council. I’m used to really interactive audiences where there’s snapping and cheering – heckling even,” she said. “At city hall they don’t clap. They just stare blankly in their suits. It’s funny. I said vagina in city hall, which was awesome.” Purvis-Bellamano is expecting a far higher degree of audience engagement at the fourth annual Victoria Spoken Word Festival, for which she has been heavily involved as the volunteer co-ordinator. The official mandate of the youth poet laureate is to support other youth artists, showcase youth art and advocate for youth issues through art. One step towards achieving those goals could begin with Purvis-Bellamano’s hope to see young people take advantage of student pricing and participate in the festival, which this year includes an afternoon workshop with poet of honour, the folk-punk-accordion poet, Barbara Adler. The poet is an alumnus of Victorious Voices, a youth spoken word program, facilitated by the Victoria Poetry Project that culminates in an annual slam competition. “Hands down, every year there are people on that stage who are significantly better than the people end up on the Victoria slam team that competes nationally. The calibre of youth poets in this city is outstanding and often times better than the adults.” That level of talent springs from high school slam clubs where students have created safe environments to take some serious creative risks. Purvis-Bellamano recalls an early experience she had at Esquimalt high with a young club member, whose father had just died. In preparation for delivering his eulogy, she turned to the club and read it for a group of about 25 students. “That was a place she felt safe enough. Even to this day, I’m still shocked because high school can be such a horrible, vitriolic place, but in slam club, she felt safe.” While the poet may have finessed her craft over the last few years, her subject matter has remained as bold as her first slam piece, a commentary on sexual objectification. “I was kind of a rootin’ tootin’ feminist even back then,” she said. “I think I’ve gotten gentler over time. I used to yell on stage a lot more than I do now, which I think is good. I think I’ve matured as an artist and I hope I’ll continue to do so.” Part of Purvis-Bellamano’s evolution dovetails nicely with the overarching theme of this year’s festival, Inside Story – which festival director Missie Peters describes as an opportunity for spoken word artists to explore their role as storyteller

in our modern culture. “They are the ones telling stories around the campfire,” Peters said. What does that mean and what does that do? Often slam poetry comes from a very ‘I’ place. ‘I did this and I did that,’ so I’m trying to get inside – what happens when you talk from a character’s perspective? What happens when you tell a story that’s outside of yourself? There’s so much metaphor inside of story.” Emerging spoken word artists from across the country perform Wednesday through Saturday at the Metro Studio Theatre (1411 Quadra), where the festival has moved after selling out last year at the smaller Intrepid Theatre Club location. They’ll also be working together at improv, theatre, storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre workshops throughout the week, all with the aim of delving deeper inside story. By Saturday, they’ll be ready to channel their new perspectives into a grand finale showcase, a collaborative one-time spoken word event to follow Adler’s latest offering. Purvis-Bellamano is enthused. “It shocks me when there’s a single person in the world who doesn’t show up to that show,” she says. “It’s amazing. Last year there were Scrabble bits and playing cards and dominos being thrown into the audience and weird people with toilet brushes on our heads. It’s amazing, brilliant art.” Tickets to the festival start at $10, with full passes at $40. The workshop with Adler comes at a cost of $25 and requires registration.

Sewage public relations to cost $1.6 million Daniel Palmer News staff
A commission of appointed members at the Capital Regional District unanimously approved $1.6 million in communications contracts Friday for the CRD’s secondary sewage treatment project, Seaterra. Acumen Communications Group received a $1.5-million contract for stakeholder and public engagement through 2018. Another $100,000 contract was awarded to Taiji Brand Group to design “Seaterra program education and awareness campaign” paraphernalia, according to a staff report. “I do feel the products and the work
(Acumen) is doing is very important for the community ... and for the success of this project. You can’t necessarily have staff in-house doing this work without hiring (more) people,” said commission member Pam Elardo. Elardo is also director with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, wastewater treatment division in Washington State. Acumen has billed the CRD approximately $185,000 since May 2013 to create a strategic program communications plan and provide ongoing services. CRD spokesman Andy Orr told the Seaterra commission that the project is no longer in the public consultation phase and that ongoing communications
will focus on engagement with affected communities. “Much of the work we’re doing now is really what I’d categorize as engagement. It’s not fair to say to the people ... ‘you have a choice,’ when the decision’s been made,” Orr told commissioners. “The public doesn’t fully understand that the Seaterra program is actually now in mandation,” said Albert Sweetnam, Seaterra project director. “It’s now about engagement.” The seven-member Seaterra commission is responsible for approving all sewage-related contracts, while cost overruns must be approved by the CRD board. firstname.lastname@example.org

Better Vision for Older Adults
As one of today’s “older adults” you probably enjoy a more active lifestyle than people of your age ever have before, and your vision plays a major role in your lifestyle. You use your eyes while driving, enjoying recreational activities; reading; watching television; and performing many tasks that keep you living independently and productively. As you mature, you may begin noticing subtle changes in your vision. Although they may cause some concern, some vision changes are normal and only a few conditions are sight threatening. Here are some suggestions to help you understand your age-related vision limitations and compensate for them: 1. You will probably need more light for reading and other close tasks. Move a lamp closer to you or use a brighter bulb. 2. Amber/brown tinted lenses can reduce glare from sunlight. 3. When taking medication, be sure to read the label carefully and follow directions. Take your medication in a well-lit room to avoid confusing of www.oakbayoptometry.com mixing up medications. Dr. time Neilmay Paterson 4. Side vision and reaction reduce with Dr. Suzanne age, so keep this in mind while you are Sutter driving or Optometrists walking near traffic. 100 -2067 5. Limit night driving to well-lit roads; keep Bay headlights and windshieldsCadboro clean; and beRd. sure to 250-595-8500 keep you eyeglasses clean. Age related vision changes can’t be prevented, but they need not mean you must give up activities Dr.ByRachel Rushforth* like driving or reading. practicing good general www.admiralsvision.ca health habits and having regular Optometric eye *Denotes Optometric examinations, you should be ableCorporation to continue enjoying an active, productive and independent life. 106-1505 Admirals Rd.

The Victoria Police Department and UsedVictoria.com are forming a new community partnership in order to return recovered stolen property. The program combines two successful programs already in place that advertise lost or stolen property: VicPD’s “Is This Yours?” Pinterest board and the Found section of UsedVictoria.com will now both feature property that police are looking to return to its rightful owners. “VicPD’s Is This Yours? Pinter est board has proven itself as a very useful tool for our officers over the last year and a half,” said Mark MacIntyre, director of VicPD’s public affairs and crime prevention services. “This new community partnership will greatly strengthen our ability to return stolen
property and serve members of our communities.” Since the launch of VicPD’s Pinterest board in 2012, police have returned stolen bicycles, electric scooters, wedding photographs, iPads and iPhones to their rightful owners. Combining that success with UsedVictoria.com’s 500,000-plus unique visitors a month is likely to create more happy reunions, said Elizabeth Dutton, president of UsedEv-

Brier pickup excited to be in mix Metchosin’s Jody Epp expects ice time with Team Morris at curling event News staff
Jody Epp has been throwing curling rocks for 27 years and for the first time he’s a member of Team B.C. at the Tim Horton’s Brier, on now in Kamloops. He’s the alternate player for John Morris, whose Vernon-based rink sat 3-1 in second place (at press time) heading into Monday night’s game against Prince Edward Island. Morris, a two-time Brier champ and 2010 Olympic gold medalist with skip Kevin Martin, won the B.C. title last month in Vancouver, beating Epp’s Victoria rink handily in the final. Epp got a call from the decorated skip just two days later. “I thought he was calling me to talk about the week,” Epp said before leaving last week, adding the two are old friends. “But he asked me to be their fifth man. I
Vikes off to nationals despite basketball loss
The University of Victoria Vikes men’s basketball team erased most of a 22-point deficit in the Canada West conference final against the Alberta Golden Bears in Edmonton on Saturday, but lost 82-77. The Vikes still qualified for the CIS national championships. They play the McGill Redmen in the quarter-finals in Ottawa this Friday (March 7). Chris McLaughlin led the Vikes with 25 points and 12 rebounds against the Bears.
Grizzlies clinch first place, open playoffs vs. Bulldogs
They may have lost the overall B.C. Hockey League title, but the Victoria Grizzlies ended the regular season on a winning note, beating Cowichan Valley 5-2 last Saturday at The Q Centre (formerly Bear Mountain Arena). The win gave the Grizzlies (37-15-3-3) a
two-point margin over Powell River atop the Island Division and put them in a firstround best-of-seven
playoff matchup with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Game 2 goes tonight at 7:15 p.m. in Colwood, following
pressure on the guys.” Curling has been a big part of Epp’s life since he first set foot on the ice at the Juan de Fuca rink in 1987. “My parents took me to the Juan de Fuca Curling Club to try it out. By the time I was 15, I was curling seven days a week,” he said. “It’s a sport that’s very low cost and people can play recreationally or competitively.” Team Morris essentially has homerink advantage at the Brier with the team curling out of the Vernon Curling Club. Jim Cotter, who plays third, is also from Kamloops. The winner of the Brier continues on to represent Canada at the world championships in Beijing, March 29 to April 6. email@example.com

was really blown away. I’ve tried to get to the Brier for 20 years.” The Metchosin resident is excited to compete in the national event, but admits it’s a bittersweet experience, since he’d rather be on the ice with his teammates from the Victoria Curling Club. “When I told my teammates they were so happy Jody Epp for me,” Epp said. “I’ve curled against these guys for 20 years and I know them really well. I think I am a good fit with them. They could have picked anyone in the province and the fact they picked me was really special.” Even though he’s going as an alternate, he figures there’s about a 95 per cent chance he’ll see some game time. “It’s a long week and there is a lot of
