City of Langford: tell us and we will build it Progressive West Shore municipality has manifested the facilities its residents have called for, by building business partnerships A sea of dots covered graphic posters hung inside Eagle Ridge Community Centre on Saturday during a City of Langford open house. The dots represented residents’ use of existing recreational facilities found in the city, as well as hoped-for future amenities and public works. “It gives us an idea of what people are thinking,” said Coun. Lanny Seaton as he strolled through the visual displays set up by city staff. Garnering the most dots – residents were given the coloured stickers as they arrived – was a new cultural centre; still just an idea, but one that will likely be the subject of further discussion by the city, Seaton said. Other popular dot-getters included more traffic calming measures, additional bike Don Descoteau lanes and an indoor baseball facility. Reporting An estimated 1,000 residents of all ages attended the open house. The adult residents who came through the displays helped with the city’s impromptu research project. Langford’s track record on developing facilities to meet its residents’ requests is hard to ignore: most of City Centre Park, with its ice and dry-floor arenas, kids’ play park, bowling alley and top-level athletic fields, came out of discussions with residents in 2008. Seaton pointed out that Langford was able to move quickly on building the facilities by developing business partnerships that continue to provide a revenue stream. Langford Lanes and Eagle Ridge are owned by the city but privately managed, for example, with the city receiving revenue from both. The new YMCA-YWCA and aquatic centre to be built just up the road at Westhills is a partnership between the city, the Y and Westhills Land Corporation. At the open house, residents Debbie and Clayton Leachman were eyeing the plans for the new pool, which would be located a short drive away. The couple said they seldom need to drive into town anymore, especially for recreational outings with their children. Clayton noted the new aquatic centre would be a welcome addition to the mix, as he believes the old pool at West Shore Parks and Recreation is getting a bit dated. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Langford among buyers of green corridor land City plans to sell some of the former PCC lands, the rest to be reserved for recreation and parks Kyle Wells News staff

The City of Langford has revealed itself as one of the buyers of former Provincial Capital Commission lands alongside the Trans-Canada Highway. In meetings behind closed doors – all land decisions are conducted in-camera – council voted to spend $3 million buying multiple parcels of land from the now dismantled government agency. The agreement for the properties was reached in January and with four other PCC lands in Langford now sold publicly, details of the Langford sale have been made public. Generally speaking, the lots are located west of Leigh Road; on the east and west sides of West Shore Parkway; alongside the Trans-Canada Highway near Langford Lake, and on the north side of the Trans-Canada Highway off McCallum Road near Cavalcade Terrace. “We bought what we could, probably 36 acres,” Mayor Stew Young said. Now the city will start looking at options for what to sell and what to keep, he said. Young estimates 25 to 30 per cent will be sold to help pay for the overall purchase, while the rest will be kept and devoted to parkland, recreation facilities and other city uses. “Honestly, I don’t want to put this on the taxpayers. I want to sell some of it off, piece off what we can and preserve most of it,” he said. “We’re going to take our time and this isn’t going to be a knee-jerk decision. We’re going to do the best we can to make sure we get a value out of it.” Langford was offered first dibs on the properties before they went up for sale – for below market value. Young would

have liked to see Langford buy all of it, or better yet have the province donate it to the city, but given the cost the city bought as much as council felt it could afford. “Some of it is valuable and developable and some of it’s not. What Langford’s going to do is take the areas we want to keep and add to our system. We didn’t want to have somebody else buy some of these main pieces.” Residents in the areas around the other properties which have now sold have previously expressed concern over development and losing the green corridor surrounding the highway near the Millstream Road intersection. They say Langford’s purchase could be beneficial. “It’s good and bad. It still is going to be the loss of public green space from what we had before,” said Tricia Markle, who has been speaking to media on behalf of concerned residents. “Langford’s doing their best … It’s still really the provincial government that’s to blame here.” She hopes the majority of the land Langford retains will be left as green space, rather than be developed for recreation facilities. As for the property not purchased by the city, Young said council will keep an eye on it and as rezoning applications come to council they will consider the desire to protect the green corridor. The other four properties along the highway were sold to Goldstream Rock Products, Innovative Venture Ltd., Life Style Venture Inc. and a numbered company, for a total of around $2.9 million. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Septic workshop set for Saturday The Capital Regional District is hosting a free Septic Savvy workshop at the Greater Victoria Public Library’s Juan de Fuca branch, to help homeowners maintain their septic system and increase its lifespan.

Women in need given hand up Transition houses benefit from fundraising Don Descoteau News staff

Making a difference in the community is something real estate agents and staff with Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty take seriously. That commitment, which amounts to about $40,000 per year, is not lost on Marlene Goley, manager of women’s and family services at The Cridge Centre for the Family in Victoria. The Centre operates the Cridge Transition House for Women, one of four such regional facilities supported by the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. “The difference this support makes for the women and children we support goes beyond money,” said Goley. “It provides safety, hope, a fresh start and (recognition)

that the community cares. For our clients, those contributions are priceless.” The foundation, operated nationally by Royal LePage – which has an office in Langford – is the only charitable group in Canada administered by a real estate company. Money raised locally stays in the communities. The Cridge Centre alone has received more than $100,000 over the past decade thanks to the efforts of agents and staff. It goes toward such practical applications as driving clients to appointments or children to school, the changing of locks, plus moving and counselling fees. The foundation supports three other women’s shelters here, including the Victoria Women’s Transition House, Margaret Laurence House and the Sooke Transition Society. Royal LePage agent Sharen Warde remembers when the company first tackled fundraising for shelter services, back in 2000.

They set a goal of bringing in $500 per shelter, but raised just $437.50. By comparison, the company’s annual charity golf tournament and silent auction held last fall collected about $25,000. The remainder of the money is donated by realtors. “I guess it’s just pulling together – the community and our realtor association and our company,” Warde said, explaining the campaign’s ongoing success. “It’s been a really good mix and a good fit.” Shannon Whissell, manager of communications and fund development for the Cridge Centre for the Family, said it really helps to have the consistent support of Royal LePage. “I’ve attended the golf tournament for the past four years and I’m always amazed at their good will,” she said. “They tend to have a lot of people like mortgage brokers and others there supporting the event.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Chilco Park users set to take a hike Kyle Wells News staff

View Royal is hoping to move forward with trail-building in Chilco Park this year. The plan to create trails in the Chilco Road area has been in the works since 2011, when the town received input at an open house and developed a plan for the area. Work intended for 2013 was put off for a year due to escalating costs to the Craigflower Bridge replacement and other capital projects. The move to include the trails work for 2014 was spurred by a $50,000 commitment to the project from Limona Con-

struction, developer of The Summit at Thetis on Chilco Road. The company previously contributed $50,000 for the trails during an earlier phase of the residential development. The trails will connect to a lookout point near Mill Hill Park and will be made out of granular surfaces. A steep grade change means some steps will be needed. “The residents will be able to do walking loops through their neighbourhood,” said Coun. David Screech, chair of the parks, recreation and environment committee. “A few years ago there was a commit-

tee involved in it who traipsed all over up there and we came up with this plan. It’s a great thing if we can get it going, finally.” The plan calls for installation in three zones, with trails constructed in the areas of Haagensen Court, Bamford Court, Chilco Road and a fire lane on the View Royal/Langford border. The design of the trails in meant to link neighbourhoods and future stages will also connect to Kaleigh Lane. The green light for the project hinges upon council’s approval of the town’s 2014 budget and receipt of the money from Limona. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Close call reminds drivers to look out for cyclists Kyle Wells News staff

Vision Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

A collision between a cyclist and a vehicle abruptly exiting the Trans Canada Highway has police reminding drivers to keep their eyes open, with warmer weather bringing more riders out. The incident happened the morning of March 26, when a driver appeared to make a

last-minute decision to turn onto the exit for Island Highway and Burnside Road. A northbound cyclist on Hwy. 1 was in the white-lined triangular area that separates the exit lane from the highway – a nodriving area – when struck by the vehicle. The rider suffered minor scrapes and bruises, but was taken to Victoria General Hospital for precaution. The

driver was uninjured but was ticketed for an unsafe lane change. “Everybody’s going to be fine, which is a nice thing to hear,” West Shore RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz said. Police applauded the cyclist for wearing a helmet and a high-visibility vest and recommend all cyclists do likewise. Drivers are being reminded to

watch for cyclists and follow the rules of the road. “It’s the time of year where people are starting to get their bikes out,” Rochlitz said. “As more bikes take to the road, be extra cautious, be extra vigilant and think big picture: see further ahead and peripherally, making sure you are doing your shoulder checks.” kwells@goldstream gazette.com

Facts about “aging” eyesight

As we grow older, the lenses in our eyes tend to grow stiffer and less flexible. As this happens, the lens loses some of its ability to focus on near objects. This condition is called presbyopia, and it occurs in all of us – becoming apparent around the age of 40 and progressing as the years go by. Most of us notice this when we find ourselves holding books or newspapers further and further away – the “trombone” effect. Sooner of later this will go from being annoying to being unacceptable. The good news is that presbyopia is correctable. In fact, the optometrist today can supply you with more options to correct this problem than ever before. Among the available options are: Reading glasses: If your distance vision is still good and you only have trouble close up, full or half frame glasses may be the answer. Bifocals and trifocals: If you need glasses for both distance and close-up, the new generation of bifocal glasses can solve your problem. Modern bifocals are lightweight and attractive, unlike their predecessors. Trifocals have a section for those intermediate distances, just beyond armslength. Progressive lenses: A relatively new advance, these are designed to mimic the focusing action of the normal eye. They can provide the advantages of trifocals, but without the lines. Task specific lenses: People in certain professions, occupations and hobbies that require focus at particular distances can benefit from a variety of specialty lenses designed to meet their requirements. In addition , there are contact lenses which can help some people with presbyopia. If you are having trouble seeing close-up, talk to your optometrist.

The view of Langford Lake from the back deck of this home on Leigh Road, with regular deck siding having been replaced with glass panels, is stunning in the sunshine. The home is one of 10 to be featured on the annual Young Life Home Tour, happening April 12 and 13.

Home tour offers up ‘stunning transformation’ Totally updated Langford Lake home in the mix This year’s Young Life Home Design & Renovation Tour, set for April 12 and 13, is all about reinventing living spaces, where homes have undergone stunning transformations. The parade of 10 homes, which includes properties on the West Shore, in Victoria and the Saanich Peninsula, offers a variety of projects to suit a wide range of tastes. One of those projects is a total home renovation on Leigh Road

in Langford overseen by Esquimalt-based Mac’s Renovations. “We completely gutted the home, including knocking down some walls to open up the view of Langford Lake,” said Mac’s operations manager Blaise McDonald. “It had small windows overlooking the lake. We made it into a more open concept and raised the roof.” The modernization of the 1960s era home also included installing more energy efficient windows and insulation and putting on a metal roof and flashings. Other projects on the home tour include several newly built

modern homes, heritage restorations, transformations from older dated homes to spectacular modern living spaces and two waterfront properties built to blend with the natural West Coast landscape. Young Life Victoria, a Christian-based youth group, uses the fundraiser to support programs, camps and staff. Passport-style tickets for the self-guided tour sell for $25 and are available at several outlets including the Young Life office at 250-634-3223.

OUR VIEW

Langford works at connections The City of Langford has taken heat from residents in the region’s core municipalities – a.k.a. Victoria, Saanich, Oak Bay – over the years for its open-for-business policies and willingness to reduce red tape for large-scale development. Mayor Stew Young and his various councils over the years have heard loud and clear what residents want and need in their community. They’ve not only paved the way for businesses to set up shop, they’ve figured out ways for public facilities to be built, without overly stressing public coffers, to address and service the expanding population in Langford and across the West Shore. At last weekend’s public open house at Eagle Ridge Community Centre, it was rather refreshing that numerous city staff were on hand to greet and chat with residents about amenities already completed and those yet to be planned out. Overwhelmingly attendees were grateful for the work the city has done to create a more healthy and vibrant community for Langford and its neighbours. Many of the facilities built at City Centre Park, including Eagle Ridge, emerged from community consultation done in 2008. Since that community wish list has been largely looked after, it will be interesting to see how quickly council puts the ball in motion to consider the next wave of requests. The most common still-missing amenity identified by residents attending the open house was a community cultural centre. There are plenty of sports and recreation facilities on the West Shore between Langford and Colwood, but little in the way of high quality venues for theatrical and musical performances. Mayor Young and Langford council have worked hard to build partnerships with the business community to ease the financial burden on taxpayers for facilities built to date. We have confidence a similar scenario will emerge as the West Shore’s largest municipality moves forward into the next stage of its development. What do you think?

farmers might end up with “nonfarm neighbours,” or as we like to call them up north, “neighbours.” Again, this is an urban problem projected onto rural B.C., where costly restrictions mainly serve to accelerate the depopulation of rural and remote areas. Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is livid about the legislation, which has no effect on loss of farmland in her constituency. The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws, and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force bigbox development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer. The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments, but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income less than $10,000 a year.

I find it appalling. The City of Langford has received an application to amend Zoning Bylaw My position as of the time No. 300 by means of proposed Bylaw No. 1511. All persons who believe of this writing is this, we ain’t paying a dime to MMBC and that their interest in property is affected by the proposed Bylaw will be afforded an opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the Bylaw at a Public Hearing to be held in the CITY OF LANGFORD COUNCIL CHAMBERS, Third Floor, 877 Goldstream Avenue, Langford, BC, on Monday, 7 April 2014, at 7:00 pm. Please be advised that no representations may be received by Council after the close of the Public Hearing and any submissions made to Council, whether orally or in writing, will form part of a public record. Proposal:

The purpose of Bylaw No. 1511 is to amend the City of Langford Zoning Bylaw No. 300 by amending the zoning designation of a portion of the land that is the subject of Bylaw No. 1511 from P1 (Neighbourhood Institutional) Zone and adding to the R2A (One- and Two-Family Residential A) Zone to allow a subdivision of one new residential lot of approximately 890m2 (9,579ft2) in area for the purpose of allowing a Oneor Two-Family Dwelling.

Applicant: Albert Mrazek, A.B.M Construction Location:

The land that is the subject of Bylaw No. 1511 is 2506 Selwyn Rd as shown shaded on the plan.

COPIES of the complete proposed Bylaw and other material that the Council may consider in relation to the Bylaw may be viewed from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday (holidays excluded), from Monday, 24 March 2014 to Monday, 7 April 2014, inclusive, at Langford City Hall, 2nd Floor, 877 Goldstream Avenue, Langford, BC, V9B 2X8. Please contact Grant Liebscher in the Planning Department at 250-478-7882 with any questions on this Bylaw. Jim Bowden Administrator

Multinationals engaged in p.r. Re: “Green machine gathers in B.C.” (B.C. Views, March 19) Tom Fletcher complains people in Canada who organize to protect the environment are nothing but a “green propaganda machine … an industry … a branch plant of the U.S. … funded by (U.S.) billionaires …” Mr. Fletcher

is reversing the truth. Wealthy multinational oil and gas corporations funded by wealthy multinational shareholders have their propaganda machines rolling. They are trying to convince the people of B.C. that they are coming to take care of our environment, our economy and our poor. How? By piping billions of barrels of Alberta tar sands oil across our mountainous, earthquake-prone land and running huge super tankers loaded with tar sands oil along

our rugged, storm swept, shipwreckprone coast with its abundance of life and food. Mr. Fletcher and the people of B.C. are aware, or should be, that these same wealthy shareholders and corporations have already turned extensive areas of Alberta into a massive toxic wasteland which the rich corporations will leave to people of that province. Maybe Mr. Fletcher will join the wise, valiant people trying to prevent the same type of costly, unacceptable devastation happening

to B.C. and its people. Francis Blundell View Royal

Expense system needs overhaul I don’t blame B.C. Speaker of the House Linda Reid for using public funds for private purposes. But the people who should be consulted for giving away our money with no hesitation are the ones signing her cheques. It seems to me that very few government executives are truly dedicated to their jobs, while some are just greedy takers.

The whole thing appears to be a “charity organization” for the rich. Stefan Mieczkowski Langford

Rebels starting fresh in Langford New head coaches, local focus for football club’s roster Don Descoteau News staff

Photo contributed

The Westshore Rebels’ new head coaches, Tom Fong, left, and Andrew Axhorn, will share the load of trying to rebuild the team’s chemistry on and off the field. the players coaches and staff can combine to bring the program back to its former glory; “to be proud to say you’re a Rebel.” Based on what he’s seen in optional workouts and from the list of players committed to coming back, the team has what it takes to be competitive this season and build for the future, he said. Running back/

fullback Darcy Cherneff, an 18-yearold former Belmont Brave, hopes to be a key part of the Rebels’ offence this summer. He spent part of last season with the club, but notes there were definitely issues. “Last year we had a big problem with team chemistry. Not everybody was on the same page and the results showed on the field,” he said.

Over the years the Rebels football club has brought in dozens of players from outside Greater Victoria to bolster the lineup. The strategy has worked well some years, but in others it contributed to a lack of team chemistry, with some newcomers never quite connecting with local players who competed with or against each other through their developmental years. To help rebuild the team-first mentality, the Westshore Rebels introduced co- head coaches to guide what will be a group of mostly local players for the 2014 B.C. Junior Football League season. Tom Fong, defensive co-ordinator for both the Rebels and the Mount Douglas Rams last year, has been elevated to the top job. He’ll share the load with Edmonton native Andrew Axhorn, who played and coached in the amateur Alberta Football League and brings a ton of positive energy to the club. “I’m so passionate about football,” said Axhorn, who played quarterback, running back and defensive back at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. “Players see it and they feel it. Hopefully I’ll help get them to bring that passion out as well.” The 2-8 Rebels struggled on and off the field in 2013, with a lack of discipline in some individuals creating a rift. Axhorn, 35, has “zero tolerance for negative attitudes and bad behaviour.” He hopes to instill in his players a belief that “this is a football team, not a social team. We’re not here to party, we’re here to present ourselves in a respectable manner and represent our community well.” Fong, who has played and coached in Victoria at virtually all levels, said he believes

Cherneff figures a largely local lineup will help improve the feel around the team. He also has a good feeling about the dual head coaches. “Both of them have very different personalities. Axhorn is upbeat and joking around and coach Fong is more of a serious kind of guy.” The two-coach scenario was settled on due to other commitments both men have outside the team. Fong is expected to handle the defence and Axhorn the offence when both are on hand, but each plans on being familiar with the other side of the ball for when their counterpart is absent. The team will hold its spring camp at the end of this month. The Rebels open the season July 26 in Kamloops then host the Vancouver Island Raiders in their home opener Aug. 2 at Westhills Stadium. editor@goldstream gazette.com

Langford Legion hosting musical celebration Kyle Wells News staff

Love’s going to have a lot to do with it as Luisa Marshall brings her tribute to Tina Turner to the Langford Legion. Marshall’s love for Turner and her music started as a youth, when her sister forced her to watch a concert. When she realized she could make a living impersonating the singer she never looked back. “It’s been my bread and butter for the longest time,” Marshall said. “It’s much more of her being inspirational to a lot of people. I’m really having a lot of fun.”

Now she brings all of Turner’s hits to adoring fans, including “Private Dancer,” “The Best” and “What’s Love Got to do With It.” Marshall lives in Vancouver, but often

The performance will also see Marshall pay tribute to other female performers such as Lady Gaga, Shania Twain, Etta James and Amy Winehouse. She won’t be doing full costume changes for each performer with this strippeddown version of her performance, but through slight changes in dress and mannerisms, Marshall inhabits each of the performers. “I just sort of do a little movement like Amy Winehouse and people recognize it,” she said. The performance will be casual and interactive, Marshall said, with audience requests welcomed. During the show she’ll be looking in the crowd for the sexiest man on Vancouver Island to volunteer. For what, exactly, remains a surprise. Marshall will reveal her new Thunderdome coat as she performs “We Don’t Need Another Hero,” from the film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, in which Turner also acted. “The people are just hungry for entertainment like this,” Marshall said.

GREEK RESTAURANT & SNACK BAR Since 1979

LAMB SOUVLAKI IS BACK! About Eugene’s

Take Eugene’s camping or a nice BBQ with friends and family... our Tzatziki & Homous are a tasty treat that goes with anything or pick up our pita bread and make your own souvlaki!

In the alleyway behind the Royal Bank on Douglas and Fort Street, Victoria’s residents of the 80’s learned that Souvlaki and Spanakopita could be addictive, and they loved it. The delicious Greek specialties were created by the Vassiliadis family then… and still are today. The founder of Eugene’s Greek Restaurant, Evgeni (Eugene) Vassiliadis arrived in Victoria from his home in the bustling city of Piraeus (port of Athens) with wife Paschalina (Lina) and two young sons, Elefterios (Terry) and Pantelis (Lee) in November 1974. Only nine-year old Terry understood English and was able to help other family members to settle in. From the very beginning Eugene had a vision to open a traditional Greek Souvlaki Snack Bar in Victoria. However, having arrived in Victoria with only 2 suitcases and a trunk, Eugene began working as a brick-layer, his trade in Greece, in order to support his young family. To supplement the family’s income, Eugene began working in local Greek restaurants by night and took what construction jobs he could during the day. He quickly became head chef of a local Greek Restaurant and soon Lina—an excellent cook herself—joined him. They worked side-by-side until Eugene got a great

job offer in Edmonton and for a year he worked there, returning to see the family only once a month. Eventually, the family decided Victoria was the place for them. Lina, encouraging Eugene to open a souvlaki snack bar, found their first location in the alleyway of the Royal Bank on Douglas and Fort Street. They opened their doors November 24, 1979. Victorians slowly came to know how wonderful Greek souvlaki could be. With lines getting longer and longer, a second Eugene’s opened in May 1986 at 1280 Broad Street. Today, Terry and partner Pam own and operate the Fort & Foul bay location and Terry’s boys (Evan and Alex), can sometimes be seen carrying on the family tradition making souvlaki. Lee owns and operates Eugene’s warehouse and concentrates his energy on food production and wholesale sales. Lee’s wife Kelly and 6yr old son Evgeni also spend time at the warehouse learning the ins and outs of producing the best Greek food in Victoria. Eugene and Lina oversee from the background while enjoying their retirement, and customers of Victoria continue to enjoy the same wonderful home-made recipes that Eugene and Lina first served in 1979.
