Medical fax story prompts changes at imaging clinic Privacy breached for hundreds of patients
Daniel Palmer Reporting
A Victoria medical imaging clinic is changing its fax number and notifying doctors of privacy rules after a Victoria man received hundreds of private medical imaging requests to his home fax machine in error. After the News exclusively told David Mason's story last week, the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner fol-
lowed up with both Mason and the intended receiving clinic, whose fax number differed from Mason's by one digit. “The clinic has decided to change its fax number,” said Cara McGregor, privacy commissioner spokesperson. The new fax number, along with privacy guidelines for faxing and emailing personal information, is being distributed by the clinic to all relevant physician offices, McGregor said. The medical imaging clinic, CML Health-
care Inc., did not return calls for comment. Vancouver-based West Coast Medical Imaging, which purchased CML clinics from an Ontario-based company inCUSTOM February,JEWELLERS was FINE unavailable for comment. Mason received more than 200 medical imaging requests to his home fax machine since 2005, thanks to misdialled calls from sending physicians. After his story went public, Mason removed his fax machine for good. email@example.com

The Monterey Note-Ables are treading the boards in Oak Bay once again. Their new show Enjoy Yourself!, is on at the Monterey Recreation Centre, 1442 Monterey Ave. for three performances, Saturday, April 5 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 6 at 2 p.m. The Monterey Note-Ables are a group of seniors ages 50 to 90 who meet at the Monterey Recreation Centre to produce a musical variety show each spring.

Community rallies to save Sundance school Supporters of Sundance elementary are hosting a community gathering in an effort to save the school from closure. Greater Victoria school board trustees are slated to vote on whether to keep the school open at a meeting next Thursday (March 27). The community gathering is set for Tuesday (March 25) from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the school, located at 1625 Bank St. The event will feature music, a barbecue, displays of student art and school projects as well as school
registration and program information. There is also an an online petition at Facebook.com/SaveSundance. “This is a great opportunity for people to come together as a community and celebrate what Sundance means to our students, our parents and our neighbors,” says Sundance spokesperson John Balogh. “We hope people will come out to the school both as a show of support for our school and to find out more about what makes Sundance special.” Sundance elementary is one of three
Schools of Choice in School District 61 where children living anywhere in the district can attend. Greater Victoria school district is facing a budget shortfall. This is due to the impact of enrolment decline and unfunded cost pressures, say district officials. Between 2008 and 2013, the school district lost 542 students. The enrolment is forcast to decline by 97 students over the next two years. Sundance elementary has 85 students attending classes. firstname.lastname@example.org

Rethink recycling program The provincial push for a producer-pay recycling system is based on the concept of charging manufacturers whose products contribute to the waste stream, such as plastic packaging. But the soon to become governmentmandated program is going to penalize some unfairly, including citizens. For instance, it will hit the newspaper industry with a 20 cent per kilogram cost for its “packaging” – the very paper the newspapers are printed on. That vested interest aside, it’s debatable whether the new system will achieve its environmental goals, while simultaneously driving up costs for consumers. Although the MMBC collection system may have benefits for communities that currently do not have adequate curbside recycling programs, it is not needed in Greater Victoria, where the city has been achieving high rates of waste diversion through its own recycling collection. Maintaining Victoria’s current program is good for the environment, and residents who receive curbside pickup of glass containers and other recyclables that MMBC wants separated. Local consumers will effectively pay the cost of recycling twice, as producers build the price of the MMBC program into their products, and taxpayers foot the bill for curbside pickup. Though MMBC recently provided exemptions for small businesses, the program will negatively impact local economic engines such as berry farming, where consumer preference drives the use of plastic clamshell containers for retail sales – dumping the cost onto farmers, and ultimately, customers. This is a program that needs to be put on hold and reconsidered in its entirety.

‘Asinine subjects’ keep voters down Re: Politics is not entertainment (Opinion, March 14) In his novel Seeing, the 1998 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Jose Saramago, proposes an interesting option for voter apathy and rebellion: voting in mass, but in blank. Voter apathy reflects the disconnection existing between the electorate and a political system based on narrow partisan loyalties, personalities, popcorn-and-fluff, showbiz, glitz, and plenty of money whereby differences among parties are mostly cosmetic. The elites donate to all political parties indistinctly because none of the parties represents a serious threat of change to the status quo. Voters have freely elected Brian Mulroney, Jean Chretien, Rob Ford, Bill Vander Zalm and others who have taken us to wars of aggression, removed social safety nets, privatized our infrastructure, destroyed our national industry, created homelessness, closed hospitals and made soup kitchens necessary. In free societies, such as Canada, controlling people by open violence is not necessary when other ideological means are available that are far more subtle and successful than a bayonet or a club. A population immersed in asinine subjects such TV shows, mindless sports, gossip journalism and sensationalist crime stories cannot
possibly be expected to be discerning and alert when it comes to identifying the differences between competing political and class interests, including their own interest. Any political system that can form a federal “majority” government with 39 per cent of the votes in elections where 40 per cent of the people did not vote is a system that lacks legitimacy and can only exist by using deceit, manipulation and money. Voting is not the problem: lack of imagination, political education and civic culture is. Carlos Flores Victoria
Local governance key for taxpayers’ budgets Of all the levels of government that we are affected by in Canada, the municipal level is by far the one that impacts our lives the most: more than the Capital Regional District and the provincial and federal
governments. Our property taxes are often the biggest bill that property owners have to pay. Renters’ rents are affected by property taxes and so renters should be very concerned by city/ municipal governance. The City of Victoria’s property taxes have risen by about 27 per cent in the last five years (as it happens, the current mayor’s term of office) which is more than double our inflation rate. With such an impact on our lives, the younger generations would be wise to pay attention to our closest democratic representatives which are Victoria’s mayor and council. I applaud Lisa Helps for making the effort to recruit the younger generations to come and vote in our November municipal election as that is the way to make our city more affordable, sustainable and livable. Andrew Laks Victoria

Feed deer, face a fine Christopher Sun

Read my story at
If you feed deer in Oak Bay, be prepared to also feed the municipality’s coffers a $300 fine. Oak Bay council voted unanimously on Tuesday to up the fine from the current $100 to $300. Originally, council proposed introducing a two-tiered system of $300 for a first offence and $500 for repeat offences. However, legal advice found legislation does not allow for that. Coun. Cairine Green said $500 was just too much at this time. “Without understanding the significance of the problem, I can’t support a $500 fine,” Green said. “I think that’s steep.” Coun. Kevin Murdoch said he supports the stiffer $500 fine, but after reviewing the list of fines regarding animal control, he felt $300 was more appropriate. “If you look at the other fines, $200 for (obstruction of) a poundkeeper, $500 (looks excessive),” Murdoch said. No fines have been issued for feeding deer since Oak Bay prohibited it in 2010. Oak Bay will also ask the province to provide funding for its deer management strategy, which includes culling of up to 25 deer at an estimated cost of $12,500. Municipal staff has set aside $25,000 to cover the cost of implementing the strategy, which also includes public education. email@example.com

A request to change Beaverbrooke Street into resident-only parking by St. Michaels University Junior School has been turned down. Instead, Oak Bay council directed municipal staff to work with residents, the school and parents on a solution, as granting the request would have pushed the problem to the another street. According to a staff report, issues regarding parking have at times escalated to where police involvement “was almost required.” Common complaints include parents parking their vehicles too close to driveways, sometimes blocking them during drop-off and pick-up hours at the school. The school currently has about 175 students with plans to redevelop and increase the student population to 210 in the next few years. firstname.lastname@example.org

Collaboration celebrates fiddling Christine van Reeuwyk News staff
Nellie Quinn plans to bring a pub vibe to church this weekend. The celebrated Greater Victoria fiddler returned to her Sidney roots about a year ago after graduating from Newcastle University in the United Kingdom. In her four years studying folk music abroad, she developed a new family of musicians in the pub scene. Among them she met “amazing” Scottish musician Chris Meredith and since her return to B.C. for multiple teaching gigs, the pair developed a West Coast tour as Punters Reunion The tour kicked off last week at the Deep Cove Folk Club, continues this week at the Vancouver Celtic Festival and wraps Saturday in Fairfield. “It’ll be nice to finish the tour in Victoria,” she says. “I think it’ll be off the cuff. We’re quite relaxed. We’ve always played in pubs together so we’re going to try
Nellie Quinn brings Punters Reunion to the Fairfield United Church March 22. and bring that feel.” They’ll interact with the audience, joking and telling tales of their pub days in Newcastle. “All the folk music really derives from the pubs in Europe. It’s going to be a strong Canadian and Scottish focus for our repertoire,” she says. Divided by oceans, the duo recorded
songs via Facetime and rehearsed indivdual parts, well, individually, then shared those through technology. “We’re just going for it, you know. It’s just happening. It’s not too forced.” Each has a handful of original tunes they’ll mix into the loose set list, that could feature music as newly minted

as that afternoon. “It’s all very new and I’m sure we’ll be writing some tunes together this week, and playing them the same day we write them,” she says with a laugh. Both fiddle, Meredith adds guitar and there’s a slight chance his banjo could make an appearance. “You never know it might show up,” Quinn says. “We’re totally playing it by ear, it’ll be fun.” Youth fiddle group Coastline will open the show under the direction of Ivonne Hernandez, another well-known Greater Victoria fiddler. “She tours quite a bit so I sub for her,” Quinn says. The 15 young fiddlers she calls “hot shots of Victoria” come with a couple of cellists, piano and violin to round out the performance. “Ivonne really pushes them and they’re hungry for the music, which is great,” Quinn says. “We might do a tune or two with them.” Punters Reunion plays on Salt Spring Island Friday night then returns for the Victoria gig Saturday, March 22 alongside Coastline at Fairfield United Church, 1303 Fairfield Rd. Tickets $15 adult/$10 students – available at Larsen Music, Long & McQuade and Ivy’s Books. reporter@saanichnews. com

Championship league ready to take on 2014 News staff
Beacon Hill Little League is hoping its 2014 season is as good as last year. In 2013, the league celebrated its most successful season ever, winning three championships: the major boys and minor boys allstars captured the District 7 championship, while the minor girls softball team was crowned city champs. This year’s opening Tak Niketas ceremonies will be held April 13 at Hollywood Park. The season runs through to the end of June. More than 330 children, ranging from Blastball for kids from 3 to 4 years of age all the way up to junior girls softball, are expected to take to the field this year. The teams play in James Bay, Fairfield, Rockland and South Oak Bay. Tak Niketas, the district media relations manager, says Little League baseball is all about having fun. “I remember playing Little League in the 1970s,” he says. “There was nothing better than getting up, riding your bike to the park, playing with friends and improving your skills.” Along with house league teams, Beacon Hill Little League also has all-star squads that play at local, regional and provincials levels. There is still room for players to register for this year’s season, go to beaconhilllittleleague.pointstreaksites.com for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org

Q: WHAT ARE SOME POINTERS FOR THE MOVING PROCESS? If you’re using a moving company, get three quotes – Check their rating with the Better Business Bureau and ask them to come to your home first to help avoid surprise charges Separate your ‘immediate need’ boxes – Keep items you use daily apart from other boxes for quick access Buy enough supplies and collect boxes ahead of time if you’re packing – Running out when you’re nearing moving day adds one more job to an already busy time Start out right in your new home, consider the elements of feng shui – Don’t simply move the clutter from your old home to the new one. Seriously think about getting rid of items you haven’t used or looked at in a year or more Do you have a homebuying or selling story you’d like to share with us?

BUYING TIP | Read a blank sales agreement ahead of time to familiarize yourself with what’s involved
Checklists handy when moving time comes Being organized can go a long way toward reducing your stress level Don Descoteau News staff
For home buyers, moving can be stressful, no matter if one is a firsttime purchaser, scaling down to a smaller place or moving up to a larger home. If you want to remove a fair chunk of that stress, there are various strategies for reducing it. And the nice part is, most can be utilized long before the sales agreement is signed or the moving company is booked. Barbara McDonell with Clutter Queen Services often works with people to get rid of unwanted items in advance of move. “I get them look at one item and ask, ‘do I love it and do I use it?’ If not, they should seriously consider donating it or selling it,” she says. “If they can’t answer right away that they love it, they usually don’t.” She recommends starting with large items to maximize downsizing efforts and get you thinking about whether your old furniture will fit in the new place. Another area ripe for decluttering, she says, is storage lockers. “I find that people are paying a lot of money for (outside) storage. People will often discover things they haven’t used in ages and may never use again, like 30 copies of a university thesis. If you don’t get rid of it, you’re paying to move it, if you happen to be gong to another city.” By the time you’re ready to start looking seriously for a new home – maybe you’ve already found one that fits your needs – there are certain logistical steps to take.
Don Descoteau/News staff
Packing up your belongings early, or getting rid of unwanted items, is an action that can make your life easier ahead of a move. Once clients settle on his services, says Realtor John Hircock, he works with people to find out where they are in the buying procedure. “I do a bit of an interview to see if they’re pre-approved (for a loan) and who their mortgage broker is,” he says. “I want to make sure they have a little better understanding of the process.” He helps clients understand what they need to have in place before they buy, but also has a good checklist that includes other service providers who can help make buying a home a smooth experience. “The real estate agent is just one of the professionals that people are going to use,” Hircock says, listing such tasks as hiring a home inspec-

tor and a moving company, and having documents vetted and signed by a lawyer or notary public. “There’s a whole bunch of people who are going to be involved in that transaction, perhaps even an accountant.” Part of the package he offers includes a closing costs worksheet to help eliminate surprises or underestimation of the funds needed to complete a deal. “You need to have a bit of money set aside to transfer your services (such as hydro, cable, phone and home heating) in addition to all the closing costs, like the property transfer tax (for which exemptions are available for firsttime buyers).” Once the house search gets down to the offer stage, only three things
can happen: the seller can reject it, they can counter with a different price, or they can accept it. Regardless of the seeming simplicity of the transaction, it can still be a stressful time, Hircock says. “It takes time and sometimes there’s multiple offers. Explaining that process, letting a client read through a blank contract of purchase and sale, helps people have at least a general understanding of the process (going in).” When the moving date is confirmed, people can do various things to prepare, says Cathy Haynes, the Downsize Diva. One of her first suggestions? If you plan to use movers, book them early (mid-month specials are often available). If you plan to pack your own boxes, use strong ones that can close at the top and be stacked and list contents clearly on the side. As for the aforementioned service transfers, book well ahead so as not to have service interrupted. Other items to change include licences and insurance, credit cards, bank information, subscriptions and getting your mail forwarded to the new address for up to six months. If those are the “must-dos,” Haynes says, the “nice-to-dos” include leaving things for your home’s buyer, such as warranties and instruction manuals for appliances and dated invoices for major renovations. “You also want to let them know where the shutoffs are for the water, and leave behind paint cans from recent painting jobs for touchups,” she says. “It’s also nice to leave the names of a couple neighbours, especially the Block Watch captain; your favourite cafés and maybe a parks and rec booklet. Oh and don’t forget the remotes for the garage doors.” Overall, a little forward planning can help make the moving process a pleasure rather than a chore.
