enelakut Island grandfather Richard Jerman can stay in Canada. Citizen and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander ended a threemonth nightmare for Jerman, when his permanent residency application was approved in principle Feb. 25. Jerman was arrested as an illegal immigrant Dec. 11 at his home on the island formerly called Kuper. He was unavailable for comment by press time. However, Saanich-Gulf Islands MP Elizabeth May, who took on his case, said she’s thrilled by the outcome. “I’m very grateful minister Chris Alexander has granted permanent residency status for Richard. It was a real injustice what he went through, and it’s an enormous relief it’s been resolved,” the Green party leader and lawyer told the News Leader Pictorial. “A lot of people worked very hard on this case.” Without any major health or criminal-conduct concerns, Jerman’s residency was expected to be finalized soon. more on page 3

B.C. businesses say new recycling fees threaten their future Multi Material B.C. changeover: Farmers, printers join alliance to battle incoming provincial system

Jeff Nagel

Black Press

A

n alliance of business groups opposed to the new Multi Material B.C. recycling system is demanding the province halt the planned May 19 launch and go back to the drawing board. MMBC, an industry stewardship group, is poised to take responsibility for curbside blue box collection — with more containers and material types collected than before — while charging businesses for the recycling of the packaging and paper they generate. But it’s been in a bitter fight with small business groups that complain they are set to pay punishingly high fees, which will then be passed on to consumers. The battle took a new turn Monday, when the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and eight other associations launched a campaign in B.C. newspapers and online at rethinkitbc.ca to amplify the pressure on Victoria. CFIB provincial affairs director Mike Klassen predicted job losses and some business closures as a result of the MMBC regulations and fees. “This is public policy run amok,” he said. “We are asking British Columbians to talk to the B.C. government to push the pause button on its reckless and red tape-laden program.” B.C. Agriculture Council vice-chairman Stan Vander Waal said farmers can’t readily stop packaging strawberries and blueberries in plastic clamshells, because retailers insist that’s what consumers want. “We have to wear the cost,” he said, adding MMBC fees will cost his Chilliwack farm $60,000 to $100,000 a year. “It goes directly against growing agriculture.” Canadian Newspaper Association chairman Peter Kvarnstrom, who is publisher of a paper in Sechelt, warned the new system will be “catastrophic” to B.C. community and daily newspapers, resulting in job losses in an already challenged industry and reduced service to communities. The opposition groups say they support the aim of the program — to make generators of packaging pay to recycle it — but they dispute the fees and say multi-national consumer goods firms like Unilever and Walmart control MMBC and are manipulating it to their benefit, not that of local businesses. Most of the fees for container waste are double or

School limits computer, TV use

How they rank

from page 1

Rankings of the other valley elementary schools on the Fraser Institute list (out of 982):

The Grade 7 class will be doing an art show at the Robert Bateman Foundation building in Victoria this year. The school has even made a splash in local sports, with its midget basketball team winning the district championship the last two years. Among the procedures that Sunrise follows is limiting children’s exposure to television and other media. They don’t use computers in school. “We like to tell stories and like to have them use their imaginations to fill in the pictures,’’ said McDuff. The students also have the same teacher from Grades 1 through 8 for the main lessons in math, language arts, etc. “That’s boosted by a number of other subjects taught by other teachers,’’ McDuff pointed out. The school has about 22 teachers and “they all have Waldorf training,’’ he added.

structure in the valley changed, we’ve been urged to add a Grade 8 by parents looking for a more intimate high school experience for their children than they thought would be possible at a large school,’’ said communications co-ordinator Vivi de Graff. “Almost any B.C. student can have this education because we admit students based on an interview; not on ability to pay tuition.” Island Oak specializes in small school education with

owichan and Lake Cowichan teachers have joined with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation membership in delivering a strong strike mandate. Public school teachers voted 89% in favour of strike action in three stages following voting conducted during three days last week. The BCTF does not provide a breakdown of the vote tally for each local. “As for what teachers are thinking in Cowichan, I can say that they are aware that we are in the same predicament as we have been for the past 12 years,’’ noted Naomi Nilsson, president of the Cowichan District Teachers’ Association. “We have the same government in power that stripped our collective agreements of class size and composition language. “We are hopeful that the overwhelmingly positive strike vote

Push for more affordable housing begins here Cowichan Co-operative Connections: hosting two-day event it hopes might be the catalyst to create housing co-op here John McKinley

News Leader Pictorial

T

he push for more affordable housing in Cowichan could best be described as an underground hum of conversation. Cowichan Co-operative Connections is hoping a two-day event might be the catalyst to thrust it into the forefront. Thom Armstrong, executive director for the Co-op Housing Federation of B.C. will be the keynote speaker for the Duncan event, titled Housing Co-operatives: A Solution to the Affordable Housing Problem in the Cowichan Region. Housing co-ops are typically run on a non-profit basis and owned

by their members. Every month, each member pays an amount that covers their share of the operating costs of their co-op. Armstrong, who has developed such housing projects in Ontario, Saskatchewan and B.C. — including a recent partnership with the City of Vancouver to build more than 350 new affordable homes — will give a talk exploring the basics of housing co-ops and how such housing could be applied locally. His talk will springboard into a workshop exploring the steps in building co-operative housing locally. “Our affordable housing problem in the Cowichan Valley is only getting worse. We need new ideas for addressing this issue, and coops have a proven record across Canada at giving working people decent housing at a reasonable cost,” Cowichan Co-operative Connections president Rob Douglas said. “We hope this two-day event is just the start of something much bigger.” Douglas said facilitated group

discussions will give participants an opportunity to discuss the basics of the housing co-op model, how Thom Armstrong: co-ops could keynote speaker address the affordable housing problem, the typical costs of the various models such as equity and non-equity co-ops, and possible next steps for building such housing locally. The intention of the workshop is to create a core group that will lead the development of Cowichan region’s first housing co-op. Armstrong’s talk will begin at 7 p.m., Friday March 14 at the Cowichan campus of Vancouver Island University. The workshop will follow the next day from 9 a.m. to noon. The event is by donation and preregistration is not required. For more information, call 250-7153039 or 250-710-0351.

e — like 90% of the people in the valley — have absolutely no interest in resurrecting the nasty business that was the South Cowichan ECO Depot in any way shape or form. But one thing that seemed clear throughout that mess is that the CVRD is still committed to creating some kind of south-end waste recycling/transfer centre and that the people generally favour the idea, so long as it is in the right spot. If and when the search for that spot returns to the priority list everyone involved needs to do one thing before saying a word: take a trip to LadyWaste dropsmith. off site clean Last week, the Cowichan Valley Regional District quietly re-opened and userthe Peerless Road Recycling Dropfriendly off Depot — essentially, a north-end ECO Depot — after a $4 million renovation. We checked it out on the weekend and were thoroughly impressed. Well-organized, easy-to-navigate, user-friendly and impressively clean, the site almost makes waste drop-off a pleasant experience. Dual weight scales speed up the process, 21 tipping bays sit below truck level, making for easy unloading, and the site is divided into clearly marked zones — one for free dropoff, the other for paid. Everything is flat, paved and easy to manoeuvre around. The facility revolves around an attractive West Coast-style drop-off centre for more sensitive recyclables like lights and batteries. “What we were trying to create was almost a very user-friendly, Granville Island market where people can wander in and drop off items, and they’re all free,” said CVRD waste manager Bob McDonald. “We wanted to make it a very user-friendly experience.” Well Bob, consider it mission accomplished.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like

The fact Richard Jerman could be suddenly uprooted from his family and the country he’s called home for 37 years is scary business. The fact that he hasn’t been — and seems poised to officially become a permanent resident — is warm comfort that Canada is, indeed, the type of country we think it is. Thanks to all for making this happen and keeping our faith in Canada intact.

emorrhoids, heartburn, facial hair. What on earth would inspire me to use those particularly embarrassing and annoying ailments in my lead for this column? Pregnancy, that’s what. These are just a few of “If you’re the a plethora of embarslightest bit rassing and annoying side-effects expecting concerned, you women face, and often should run it by don’t expect. Which brings me to your pre-natal the gist of this piece. practitioner.” Just when you think you’ve come across the worst pregnancy symp-

tom and established it’s normal by either Googling or texting a girlfriend, something else much more odd or simply annoying will surely introduce itself. Or won’t. It’s true many gals soar through their trimesters so gracefully and beautifully that it, along with undercooked meat, makes me want to barf. But your pregnancy is likely to be completely different from someone else’s and even from the others you’ve had before. I’m learning this with my second. And quite a few women I’ve spoken with can also vouch for the same. Because this is my second go at it, I sometimes get asked for advice from first-timers. They want to know what’s the best way to prepare. What should they be ready for? As soon as they get a positive pee stick, do they rush to the bookstore to grab copies of the What To Expect books? Stock up on

The fact that B.C. teachers are, once again, in a strike position is troubling. Most will agree our school system is in need of an investment of resources and a shift from entrenched ways of thinking. Most would also agree the solution is not to simply throw money at the problem. B.C. needs both sides to step away from entrenched battle lines and work together to find a better way.

stoned wheat crackers? Strategically place them at their bedside for when the gagging starts? Do they dare Google, ‘Weirdest pregnancy symptoms’ to get it all out with a bang, right in the beginning? But before letting any of these scenarios slip into the conversation, I often bite my tongue. What if they don’t experience morning sickness? What if they never get that high school flashback breakout of bacne? Maybe bleeding gums, constipation and urinary/ yeast infections will be completely foreign to them. So instead, I might say something like be prepared for everything, anything and nothing. Toss the What to Expect book. Take it one day at a time. Learn how to use Google as an aid to search out symptoms, while at the same time avoiding discussion boards that will often

make you more nervous rather than relieved. And of course, if you’re the slightest bit concerned, you should run it by your prenatal practitioner or midwife. They’ve heard it all. And my latest note to myself has been: ‘Ashley, no matter how much you think this pregnancy is worse, this is probably (very, very likely) the last time you will ever be pregnant, so just try and enjoy it!” Now if you could please excuse me, I need to hop onto Google. I need help finding the 10 best heartburn remedies for pregnant women. Ashley Degraaf is a News Leader Pictorial reporter who writes about family issues here monthly.

YOUR TURN Next generation in pretty good shape in our valley

Dear editor Re: your Feb. 28 editorial. A couple of Saturdays ago I went for a run in Chemainus. It had snowed and when I got back to my truck I walked around for a cooldown. I noticed a couple of kids riding their bikes in the snow around Chemainus Elementary School. After the cooldown I went back to my truck to stretch. As I was leaning against the truck, using it to stretch, one of the boys took time out of his fun to ride over to ask me if I needed help. I thanked him and explained I was just stretching after a run. So, all in all, I think we’re in pretty good shape here in the valley. Rob D. Kernachan Chemainus

Fostering can make a world of difference

Dear editor Re: Aaron Bichard’s Feb. 26 column on fostering. My wife and I have had many foster children in our home over the years. Some had problems that were difficult to manage, but most just needed a loving, stable home environment. Two of our children were sisters who came to live with us at ages 10 and 11. We guided the girls through elementary and secondary school. Both girls went on to university and graduated. One was named Washington State Teacher of the Year for her work with special ed students. The other obtained an MBA. They call us Mom and Dad, and their kids call

Is Cowichan’s government doing enough to attract more businesses here?

“I don’t want business coming here, but for governments to take care of local resources to make jobs from things like fishing, but we’re messing that up. People want to open businesses but don’t have the money.”

“It doesn’t seem so. Duncan’s lacking in jobs; entertainment businesses are lacking here too. It seems (leaders) aren’t co-operating with big business. Not everyone can afford to open their own business here.”

us Grandma and Grandpa. We have others who send us Christmas cards, and pictures of their children. We still get notes thanking us for showing what a normal home could be. Sometimes foster care is the best thing that can happen to a child. Please, let’s not paint all foster kids and foster homes with the ugly brush. The following is a note we received from one of our ex-foster children when she got married: “To my parents: You moulded my life and through your own and taught me to be myself, to dream my dreams, to reach for my goals, how to give and how to love. You have always been there helping and guiding me along the way. Thank you for all you have been to me.” Ron Jeskey Crofton

Maybe a shakeup at the top is what the CVRD needs

Dear editor Why was CVRD CAO Warren Jones fired? It is unacceptable to say mutual agreement; that is umm, well you know bovine droppings! So Frank Raimondo is moving in for awhile to sort out the mess that was overdue for a shakeup. Good, now he and Tom Anderson must sort things out and restructure the dysfunctional mess that was created by Jones and a compliant and obedient CVRD board. These are two seasoned veterans and they might just do that. As a nine-year recovering survivor of the board, I sure hope so. Richard Hughes comments submitted at cowichannewsleader.com

Bad visibility, bad merge habits create crash zone

Dear editor Re: the Feb. 28 crash at Green Road and the TCH. I’m going to say someone stopped in the merge lane, and with zero visibility when entering that merge lane from the Commons, you have the resulting accident. I’ve seen too many people stop in that particular merge lane where they should be accelerating to merge with traffic. It is not a yield! It is not one of the

Andrew Leong

longest merge lanes we have in the valley, but if merging correctly — and I mean having the oncoming traffic do their part correctly — it works quite well. Oncoming traffic must make it possible for anyone in the merge lane to, well, merge, even if that means they have to slow down a bit, or move to the left-hand lane. Harry Veuger

Bill should turn his sharp eyes on the library board

Dear editor Frequent letter writer Bill Dumont is very critical of local government expenditures. I would like to suggest he apply his analytical skills to the operations of the Vancouver Island Regional Library. In the age of the internet private bookstores are going broke. Within the last couple of years VIRL has expanded. There has been loud fanfare in each of the separate communities where new library buildings have been built.

If Bill were to go over to Salt Spring he would be able to see the architectural qualities of one of the largest new buildings in Ganges. There have also been new library buildings built in Port Renfrew, Nanaimo North, Cumberland and Cowichan Lake. All these have been built with little controversy. All were built using plans developed by expensive architectural consultants. The Victoria Library has been trying for years to relocate its Central Library, but because of their municipal structure they have better oversight of their spending. Gerald McVeigh Duncan

Roundabouts a far superior alternative

Dear editor For the second time in three months, you’ve raised a yellow flag about the roundabouts being installed or planned in Chemainus, while at the same time admitting you have no expertise on the subject (Our Take, Feb. 26). This time you are quoting a resident in Saltair who says 8,000 vehicles a day at the Chemainus/River Road intersection makes for a “a rather quiet, even lazy, sort of intersection.” Well, maybe I’ve become spoiled by living in a small town, but to me that’s a lot of traffic for any twolane arterial road. Local roundaphobes say we can’t have circles at consecutive intersections only a block apart, yet they gladly accept traffic lights and multi-way stops at every block. We get no informed technical analysis from our stop-sign huggers about what will supposedly go wrong in Chemainus if we install multiple roundabouts along a single stretch of road. Instead, we just get a lot of fear-mongering. I’m no engineer either, but I know from practical experience that traffic on a road handling 8,000 vehicles per day moves more safely and efficiently through a traffic circle than through any kind of stop-controlled intersection. I’m very grateful we have politicians and engineers in North Cowichan who are determined to invest in a safe and efficient system of roads, and ignore the pennypinching naysayers who would have our municipal arterial routes turned into a local version of that hypersignalized stopway from hell, the Island Trans-Canada Highway.

Unveiling Jan Donaldson’s quilted world What speaks to me: Designer gypsy now created from Chemainus studio Eliza Faulkner

News Leader Pictorial

J

an Donaldson is a self-proclaimed gypsy. After discovering her love for quilt-making she quickly began selling her wares to magazines, dignitaries, and musicians all over North America. For three years she had a TV series called Jan Donaldson’s Quilted World and has since travelled all over Canada selling her wares at festivals and farmers markets. Her appliqued clothing has been worn by CBC’s Holger Petersen, blues musician David Gogo, and Latin guitarist Oscar Lopez (to name a few). For 35 years, Jan has been living off of her one-of-a-kind creations. This month she has opened her first showroom and studio on Willow Street in Chemainus. Jan tells Island Style about her creative process, her new shop, and how her creations have even saved marriages. What is your business and what inspired you to create what you do?

Cover Story

Cashmere & Lace

I’m a clothing designer, quilter and hand-stitch fibre artist. Jan Donaldson Designs is the name that I go by. I was inspired to do this when I was getting out of a marriage and living on a farm in Quebec. I looked at what I loved to do and I decided I would become a professional quilter. Within a year I did my first show in Montreal called Salon des Metiers D’Art. It is the biggest show in North America! After the show I sold some designs to Better Home and Gardens and from there I sold designs to the Canadian government as official gifts for visiting dignitaries. I was then offered my own TV series called Jan Donaldson’s Quilted World. It was shown all over the country for three years. What kind of training do you have or are you self-taught? I’m 100% self-taught. I actually flunked Home Ec. in high school! I’ve taught myself all about clothing design by just doing a lot of it. It’s wonderful not to be influenced by anybody. I write my own rules. In the early days I would stare at a blank piece of paper until something came to me. Now designing is just second nature. What kinds of materials do you use and where do you make your pieces? I sew with all kinds of fabrics but for clothing I use mostly cottons. For handstitching and appliqued wall hangings or jackets I use a lot of silks, velvet and

glitzes. I have thousands of metres of fabric in my new studio and I use whatever speaks to me in the moment. Tell us about your new showroom in Chemainus. I just moved into my new studio and showroom, which is on Willow Street in Chemainus. It’s a sewer’s dream studio! I moved in here four months ago after being home-based for the past 20 years. It’s great to be in a retail space again. What are some of your favourite designs and styles right now? Right now musician’s stage wear is my favourite. I’ve always loved and supported live music and now I can combine that love with my business. I create one of a kind shirts and jackets for musicians around the world. Many of them are people I meet at various music festivals across B.C. and Alberta. It feels so good to be able to create a unique look for each performer. When looking for new ideas, what do you do? Ideas just come to me. My brain is in creative overdrive all of the time. My musician’s stage wear was inspired by a line of music-inspired fabrics that one of my fabric reps had available. My new wool capes were inspired by a musician

Some of Jan Donaldson’s signature pieces involve stagewear for musicians.

Designer also does custom wall hangings

In Your Fashion

from page 12

Who are your customers mostly? Because of the stage wear line, many are musicians. I also have a huge following of women due to the ladies and kids lines that I have made for many years. Women come and buy something for themselves, their children, and their grandchildren. I also do a lot of custom wall hangings. One couple loved their wall hanging so much that when they split up it was the only thing they fought over. They shared it for a while and eventually it got them back together. Where are your products sold? I sell my pieces at different venues, music fes-

tivals, and farmers markets in B.C. and Alberta and also in my new studio in Chemainus. I also wholesale my hats to some wonderful stores around Canada. This year is my 35th anniversary of my business and I’m hoping to drive across the country to different music festivals and reconnect with some of my customers and fans from my old TV series. What is the price range? The price range is very broad. Anywhere from $9 for a neck cooler to $9,000 for a 14-foot wide and stitched wall hanging. The musicians stagewear ranges from $75 to $250 and hats are $14 to $20. For more information on Jan Donaldson Designs, visit jandonaldson.com.

Cover Story

Age: 22 What is your occupation? Professional photographer (www.berkleyvop.com) What is your passion? Photography and everything that comes along with it! I focus on fashion, creative portraiture and weddings. What inspires you most? My parents are extremely inspiring, and this beautiful island we live on, and my friends. They’re the best. My style icon is I don’t really have one. I raid my grandmother’s closet every few months as she’s kept some pretty amazing pieces. My style is best described as Mixing old with the new. I love recycling vintage clothing especially sweaters and coats. Today I am wearing A vintage wool coat that my dad got me, some Italian leather Chelsea boots, Cheap Monday skinny jeans, and a white Zara knit. My favourite piece of clothing is A gorgeous Icelandic sweater that my cousin in Iceland knit for me when I visited for the first time. I’m obsessed with cozy sweaters and that one is really special to me. To be stylish one must always Be comfortable with yourself and in the clothes you’re wearing. As long as you’re happy and expressing yourself with your outfit, you’re stylish in my books!

our minds. Or maybe it’s the simple fact that it’s spring all over again and we’re champing at the bit to get out there into nature. Whatever it is, we’ve got all things green on our minds. In celebration, we’ve made a shortlist of our favourite ecoand green fashion businesses. If Saint Patrick’s Day and Earth Day don’t get you thinking green, then these designers surely will: Hilary Else

Hilary’s hand-dyed, hand-made merino wool knits are the favourites of many local families. Layered in the winter, or worn alone in the summer, Hilary’s pieces are fantastic investments for a year-round wardrobe. You can find her pieces at local farmers markets and fairs around the valley. (More at fooelse.com) Spinning Ninny

Owner Lara Brunschot curates a

delightful selection of gifts, jewelry and clothing at her Cowichan Bay shop. Now with two locations (one for getting creative, the other for shopping) Spinning Ninny is the place to visit if you’re in need of a locally sourced gift or piece of clothing. Just to step foot in this quirky and wonderfully merchandised shop is a treat in itself. (more at spinningninny. ca) Barn Swallows Apparel

For a chic take on ecofashion, look no further than Barn Swallows Apparel. Designed and made by Shannon Wilson, her merino wools and up-cycled cashmere sweaters are a joy to wear. Infused with vintage touches and dreamy colours, Barn Swallows Apparel is a treat for the woman seeking stylish clothing with a vintage twist. (More at facebook. com/BarnSwallowsApparel)

Finding the Look

Ancient Futures

Started by local designer Ali Bertin, Ancient Futures provided the ecoconscious fashionista with colourful, draped merino wool styles. Ali works out of her home and also sells at local markets. You can also see a small

but beautiful selection of her merino wool knits at the Duncan Garage on a daily basis. (More at ancientfutures. ca.) Radway

Also located in Cowichan Bay, Radway has become a hub for the eco-conscious shopper. With brands like Nomads, Preloved, and Lilikoi, Radway has got something for everyone in your family. They also stock coveted jewelry from Pyrra in Vancouver and luscious soaps from Saltspring Island. Even if you’ve been before, be sure to visit this month and check out their brand new renovation. (more at radway.ca) Rocks & Roots Apparel

Although it started as up-cycled slippers and clothing for babies, the three busy moms behind Rocks & Roots Apparel have since added clothing and accessories for moms as well. Wool, recycled leather, applique and wooden buttons are just a few of the whimsical items that adorn these hand made, up-cycled garments. (Check facebook.com/rock. roots.apparel.)

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 15

Doomed love hits the Cowichan Theatre’s HD screen A fresh take on doomed love is how the Cowichan Theatre is billing the latest installment of its The Met Live in HD series. German tenor Jonas Kaufmann, described in the New York Times as the most in-demand, versatile and exciting tenor in opera, stars in the title role of Massenet’s Werther.

Based on Goethe’s revolutionary and tragic romance The Sorrows of Young Werther, the opera focuses on a poet in love with a woman who has made a promise to her dying mother to marry someone else. “Mr. Kaufmann is ideal in the role,” says Anthony Tommasini in the Times. “He sings with

dark colourings, melting warmth, virile intensity and powerful top notes.” The show begins at 9:55 a.m. on the Cowichan Theatre’s big screen. Tickets are $26 with discounts for students, seniors and children at the Cowichan Ticket Centre by calling 250-748-7529 or online at cowichantheatre.ca.

Cowichan chasing The Next Star Double shot: Not one, but two Duncan talents participating in musical reality show

Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

owichan is fertile ground for superstardom — seeds include local songwriters Parker Schmidt and Lynnea Bruce. Rare seeds indeed. The valley pair is among 30 finalists whittled from an original field of some 4,000 youths vying as contestants on YTV’s newest talent show The Next Star: SuperGroup. Competitions starting this week will see Canadian audiences vote for the next huge group. In this spin-off of the popular talent competition series The Next Star, Canadians will vote for the next super group in the vein of One Direction or Fifth Harmony. Bruce and Schmidt were shocked to see each other at May auditions in Vancouver, considering SuperGroup’s national scope. “Thousands auditioned, so to have two people from Duncan is pretty crazy,” said Frances Kelsey High student Schmidt, 14, who was a top-six finalist on Next Star’s season four. Next Star newbie Bruce, 16, noted two other hopefuls hailed from a Toronto arts school, but she found it extraordinary she and Schmidt are “close friends who have performed together for a couple of years.” Bruce — studying cosmetology at VIU Cowichan — hoped she and Schmidt could Skype each other while watching SuperGroup elimination episodes that began March 11. Confidentiality rules prevented the pair from talking about songs and other results from SuperGroup sessions filmed in Toronto last summer. But both found the contest a creative awakening. “It was the best experience of my entire life,” said Bruce, applauding mentoring work from

the show’s coaching pros. “I was especially nervous about the dancing,” she said, cheering tips from choreographer Nico Archambault — and working with four other females in a temporary band, versus her solo performances. Same for Schmidt. “The most valuable lesson was learning to work in groups, even if temporary, where everyone feels valued,” he said. The show is a big opportunity to lure Canadian talent into the spotlight, he explained. “There’s nothing like it in Canada or the U.S.,” Schmidt said of SuperGroup,, and ongoing commitment to his craft. “If you don’t put in the effort, you won’t go anywhere.” The multi-instrumentalist Parker Schmidt and hip-hop hoofer cited Bruno Mars as the act he’d most like to hit the stage with. “I would love to perform his song Treasure with him.” Schmidt may get his shot through Next Star by “making sure I’m open to everyone’s ideas, and not shutting them down.” Bruce — a Duncan’s Got Talent, and SunFest performer — likes so many musicians, she couldn’t pick just one she’d most enjoy performing with. “Singing with Taylor Swift would be a dream come true,” her Next Star promo material says. SuperGroup is a spin-off of YTV’s The Next Star, the six-episode series, produced by Tricon Films & Television, that takes viewers through

Lynnea Bruce

a tip-top talent showdown to crown a new mega boy- or girl group. The search follows 30 finalists who travel to Toronto and compete in groups of five amid mentoring by an expert panel. Two groups will face off in the live finale. Fans can vote online or by texting, to determine who wins the grand prize and title of The Next Star: SuperGroup. The finale will launch the pop career of the winning group that will record two original songs released by Sony Music, and earn an exclusive management deal with 21 Entertainment, managers of artists such as Fefe

Dobson, JoJo and Kreesha Turner. Host Jordan Francis leads The Next Star: SuperGroup offering coaching expertise from actress and recording artist Cory Lee (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Instant Star), and multi-platinum music producer and songwriter Damon Sharpe (The X Factor, Big Time Rush). SuperGroup’s panel of pros includes Archambault (So You Think You Can Dance Canada, Nureyev), vocal coach Sarah Morrison (Canadian Idol, Canada’s Got Talent), make-up artist Vanessa Jarman (Canada’s Next Top Model,) and stylist Corey Ng (MuchMusic, MTV). Fans can join the fun on social media and weekly videos at supergroup.ytv.com; Facebook.com/TheNextStarYTV; Twitter: @ TheNextStar, #SuperGroup; and on Instagram: @TheNextStarYTV.

T

he Cowichan Valley Capitals didn’t make the B.C. Hockey League playoffs by one point, but there was still plenty to celebrate from an individual standpoint during the 2013-14 season. The Caps held their annual awards banquet last Tuesday at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club and spread the honours

throughout the lineup. Only two players received more than one award. Goalie Robin Gusse was the most valuable player and three-star award winner while Adam Moody was recognized for academic achievement and co-winner of the unsung hero award. Captain Kyle Horsman earned a share of unsung hero status with Moody. Gusse was a workhorse for the Caps, playing in all or part of 53 of the team’s 58 regular-season games. He posted a strong

goals against average of 3.08 for a non-playoff team and a save percentage of .908. Other recipients included: Reilly O’Connor (most sportsmanlike player); Blake Butzow (most popular); Jordan Topping (most improved); Mason Malkowich (most inspirational); Colton Kehler (rookie of the year); Jarrett Brown (top gun defenceman); Rylan Bechtel and Matthew Berry-Lamontagna (top defensive defencemen); Myles Powell (leading scorer) and Jesse Neher (coaches’ award).

Cowichan women too tough to handle

Slip, sliding away: Rain-soaked game not the best for ball-handling, but Brit-Lions overpowered Don Bodger

hose rough and tough Cowichan Rugby Club women laid a 29-10 beating on Brit-Lions Saturday at the Herd Road Grounds. They were so rough, in fact, that BritLions thought they’d call the game 15 minutes into the second half. The visitors felt the referee wasn’t controlling the game and they couldn’t handle the beating Cowichan was inflicting because of it. The first game of the spring season saw Brandi Van Eeuwen score three tries while Carolyn Gudmundseth added a pair. Michelle Moore kicked two converts. “It was a wet first game back, very sloppy ball which made for a slow game,’’ observed Cowichan captain Sherry Spence. Fly half Jamaina McLeod was out of action, but Stacey Collison stepped in and played a great game in the conditions. “All the ladies played hard and put into play what we have been practicing over the past few months,’’ noted Spence. Brit-Lions awarded Cowichan players of the game honours to Moore and Gudmundseth. Cowichan’s next game this weekend is against Nanaimo.

Skaters making the most of their regional experience to improve more

SPortS WatCh

Kerry Park Skating Club members have been building on the success they obtained during the Island regional figure skating championships on home ice to further their skating. Some of the results were not available in time for the story about the event. Among those who did extremely well

were Sheryl Sizer, pictured, who placed third for the bronze medal in the Star 4 category. Brianna Mulder was fifth, Hailey Deschenes sixth and Taya Deschenes seventh in the same event. Deryn Hotel earned silver in Star 3. For Star 2, Natalie Urquhart was a silver recipient while Zohra Verduin and Jessica

Kennes each earned bronze and Emma Muller was cited for merit. “All of the competitors went into this competition with an Olympic spirit,’’ noted coach April Robson. “They all skated to their best potential, with some meeting their set goals and others setting new ones.’’

ight teams are converging on the Duncan Curling Club this week for the B.C. mixed curling championships. Wes Craig of Kerry Park represents the local hopes with Sarah Wark at third, Miles Craig at second and Michelle Allen at lead. Other rinks in the field include:

Tom Buchy of Kimberley, Ryan LeDrew of Salmon Arm, Travis Bernhardt of Prince Rupert, Derek Richardson of Juan de Fuca, Steve Kopf of Royal City, Rob Dennis of Richmond and Brian Gessner from Vancouver. The action gets under way Thursday at 1:30 p.m., with the opening ceremonies at 6. The legendary Glen Harper will throw out the first rock, leading into the second draw. Two draws Friday, three Satur-

day and two Sunday — including the final at 2 p.m. — complete the schedule. About 30 people make up the local organizing committee. “The local business community has stepped up to the plate and made their donations in exchange for their advertising, of course,’’ said DCC president Ken Percival. He’s looking forward to the event. “Some of the best curlers in the province are going to be there.’’

Connor Crichton has cranked up his offensive game for Cowichan LMG Pringle. converted a header on a nice set-up from Hughes and Ben Robson made it 3-0 at 39 minutes. “We were kind of all over them and looking good,’’ said Martin. “We had a lapse on the last play of the half.’’ But Crichton restored the three-goal lead again quickly after the break and completed the hat trick in the 60th minute. Saanich scored once more after Martin inserted some overly enthusiastic subs into the game and they forgot about defence. Div. 2 Cowichan United lost 1-0 to Nanaimo United Div. 2 Sunday evening in Ladysmith. Cowichan got caught out of position on a blocked free kick that led to the lone goal of the game. “I thought they played well enough to win,’’ said Martin, who watched the game.

rom now on, Cowichan LMG Pringle will be playing with the big boys. Cowichan completed a Jackson Cup sweep of Div. 2 Island Soccer League clubs in the first three rounds of the Jackson Cup competition with a 5-2 win over Saanich Fusion Div. 2 Saturday night at the Ladysmith Turf. Now all that’s left is rival Div. 1 powerhouses Bays United Liquor Plus and Saanich Fusion as well as upstart but unlikely challenger Nanaimo United Div. 2 in the semifinal round. Cowichan plays Bays United Friday at Victoria’s Hampton Park. The Div. 1 Fusion will likely await the winner in the final March 30 at Victoria’s Royal Athletic Park, barring a huge upset by Nanaimo. LMG has only lost three games all season — two against Bays and one to the Fusion. “It’s time to pay them back,’’ said Cowichan coach Glen Martin. “We’re coming together at the right time.’’ Cowichan is scoring goals again after a long drought, albeit against Div. 2 competition, and it’ll have to crank up the attack to have the same success against Bays or Saanich. Connor Crichton got it going for Cowichan in the quarterfinal at 15 minutes off a Tyler Hughes corner. Dan Cato

t’s going to be another productive season for girls’ high school rugby teams in the valley. Two of the local rivals, Brentwood College and Cowichan Secondary T-Birds, clashed Thursday in an exhibition game. The immense talent was readily apparent plus there’s lots of girls on both sides learning the game to become the top players in years ahead. The game was tied 12-12 at halftime, with all the best players from both sides on the field. Brentwood had Cowichan hemmed in its own end for long stretches during the half. Brentwood had to make some immediate subs to start the second half, with girls heading home for spring break. “There are eight kids who’ve never played a game of rugby in their life,’’ said Brentwood cocoach Marius Felix. “These kids are doing pretty well considering,’’ Felix added before departing himself to drive two girls who live in Fort McMurray, Alberta to the airport for the trip home during the break. Cowichan took charge in the

Adrienne Saari was a standout with three tries while Meana Manhas, Hannah Morten, Sara Lowes and Emily Lindsay had one apiece. Lindsay and Mariah Fontana kicked conversions. “Brentwood is a hard and physical team,’’ noted Cowichan coach Brad Skene. “It was great to be challenged. Our team is very keen and hard working but we need to pay attention to small details and to play to our potential each time we step on the field.’’ Hannah Colbourne and Ciel Arbour-Boehme scored tries for Brentwood.

uncan Christian School Chargers took their best shot at tough competition in the provincial A senior boys’ basketball championships and finished sixth, one notch below their pre-tournament ranking. “We knew every team was going to bring their best,’’ said DCS star Doug Groenendijk. He certainly brought his best every game at the Langley Events Centre and was rewarded with a first all-star team selection. DCS opened against No. 12 Similkameen and started on a positive note with a 58-46 victory. Nick Kapteyn (17), Jesse Van Wingerden (16) and Groenendijk (14) all provided DCS with double digit scoring. The second game of the tournament was a titanic battle with No. 4 St. Patrick’s and DCS ended up losing 68-52 despite 16 points from Groenendijk, 12 from Kapteyn and 10 from Van Wingerden. The fourth quarter decided the issue in what had been a tight game to that point, with St. Pat’s outscoring DCS 19-6. St. Pat’s eventually finished second in the tournament behind West Point Grey. DCS went on to face No. 8 Kelowna Christian and overcame a 28-15 scoring disadvantage in the third quarter to prevail 68-64. While Kapteyn went out early with a knee injury, Groenendijk exploded for 35 points.

Doug Groenendijk played a remarkable game against Kelowna Christian with 35 points on the way to being named a provincial first team allstar in Langley. “I had a crazy game,’’ he conceded. “Everything was just dropping. It was awesome.’’ Groenendijk was 13-for-22 from the field and added nine points from the free throw line. Young Mike Brandsma had an amazing game in support with 17 points. Kapteyn returned to action for the final game but DCS lost to No. 7 Immaculata 55-46. Groenendijk scored 11 and Brandsma added 10 points in vain. Groenendijk praised the young players like Brandsma and Van Wingerden for the contributions they made to the team. “They did great,’’ he said. “They improved a lot, too.’’ For coach Jim Brandsma’s take on the tournament, see the version of this story at www.cowichannewsleader.com.

Ty Brant Hard work will get you somewhere. Ty Brant is proof of that. Brant, 12, a student at Alex Aitken School, puts his head down and aims to win battles along the boards and in front of the net every game to provide a key contribution to the success of the Cowichan Valley Peewee Tier 1 Capitals’ hockey team. “I like to work hard,’’ said the Caps’ defenceman. “That’s all I need to do is work hard and achieve goals. I’m working on puck control and that stuff.’’ The fruits of Brant’s labours and the benefits to the team are obvious to coach Brett Hopwo. “His dedication to the game to get better, it’s second to none,’’ he said. “Ty’s been a warrior for us all year and I’m really proud of him actually. He’s strong both ends of the puck. He’s just intense and he’s great to have on the team.’’ Brant has already put a lot of time into his hockey development, starting at six years old. The importance of conditioning came to light for him during the Island final series against Nanaimo. “I think it was the team effort,’’ he said. “We’re well-conditioned and we had better legs than them so we had more of a jump on them.’’
