Justice centre honoured with multiple awards Mandy Larade Record Staff

The Comox Valley Community Justice Centre (CJC) has been presented with three awards all within a week’s time. The Community Justice Centre was the recipient of the Provincial Nesika Award for Excellence in Cultural Diversity for 2013. The award was presented by minister responsible for multiculturalism, Teresa Wat, at the fifth annual Provincial Nesika Awards in Vancouver at the Telus Science World OMNIMAX Theatre on Apr. 4. There were five Nesika Awards presented to different categories: Individual, Business, Organization, Youth, and a newly added category, Multicultural Excellence in Government. Out of the 124 nominees in the Organization category, the Comox Valley Community Justice Centre won. Chief administrator of the CJC, Bruce Curtis, is impressed with the victory. “We were very surprised — it’s a large category,” Curtis said. The other two awards were presented at the Volunteer Impact Awards by Volunteer Comox Valley. The Volunteer Comox Valley Volunteer Impact Award for Education and Lifelong Learning was given to all the volunteers of the CJC for their contribution to

The Volunteer Comox Valley Volunteer Impact Award for Social Justice was given to Larry Winter of the CJC. Winter coordinates the Comox Valley Youth as Caregivers program. The program helps anyone up to the age of 25 who is responsible for providing primary or significant care to an individual in their family or to their family as a whole. “We were quite

proud of him,” Curtis noted. The CJC is one of the largest volunteer organizations in the Comox Valley with 150 people dedicating their time and services. Although the number of volunteers is quite high, community restorative justice work requires a level of

confidentiality, which means that much of the CJC’s accomplishments might remain unknown, Curtis adds. The CJC works with 22 different sources to receive referrals for cases that they can help with. The CJC dealt with youth cases when it first began operating in 1998, but has since grown and taken on cases with people of all ages. Curtis says that the youth and adult cases are almost equal in numbers. “We’ve expanded and developed.” Curtis believes that having a restorative justice program within the community saves money and cuts out costs that would exist in normal court cases. The costs of a typical court case can be numerous, from paying individuals such as judges and and sheriffs to simpler matters

such as heating the court building. Curtis points out that these practical

Casino staff surprise co-worker with cash Online fundraising campaign brings in $6,000 to assist cancer-stricken associate Scott Stanfield Record Staff

An online campaign generated about $6,000 to assist Donald Playfair in his battle against Myelodysplastic Syndrome, also known as pre-leukemia. The 63-year-old Merville resident has undergone a successful stem-cell transplant and chemotherapy at Vancouver General

Hospital. Before returning home, he needs to spend another three months at the Jean C. Barber Lodge near VGH. At the end of his four-month stay, the bill will be $5,500. But thanks to the efforts of friends, he could be going home with about $1,000, which will help pay for a home care nurse. Playfair’s former Courte-

nay casino co-workers Lindsy McLaughlin, Sid Hamel and Barb Mills initiated the fundraising campaign. “It’s simply amazing,” Playfair said. “The company did really well by me.” In addition to online donations, Playtime Gaming Courtenay (Chances) hosted a couple of fundraisers. Patrons at Courtenay Return It Depot also chipped in.

Playfair last worked at the casino in August but he plans to eventually resume his job. He also plans to volunteer with a cancer support group. “What goes around comes around,” Playfair said. “The future looks bright so far. As long as there’s no major side efforts from the chemo, I should be OK.” reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

MMBC opponents heading to court

Business opponents of Multi Material BC are planning a court challenge to reverse the takeover of B.C.’s curbside recycling system by the stewardship agency. They continue to urge the provincial government to freeze the new MMBC system before it takes effect May 19, but are also laying the groundwork for a legal battle. Kelvin McCulloch, CEO of the Buckerfield’s chain of farm supply stores, is urging other businesses to sign and submit their MMBC contract but then give notice to the government that they won’t pay fees or otherwise cooperate with the new system to collect packaging and printed paper. McCulloch intends to gather opt-out letters from numerous businesses across B.C. and deliver them to the province. If the MMBC rollout continues, he said, they will argue in court that the MMBC contracts were invalid and they were coerced to

join the government-created recycling monopoly. “We’re fairly confident at this point it will be struck down,” McCulloch said. “No company in their right mind would sign that contract of their own free will.” The Province contends MMBC is voluntary and various industries could instead form their own separate waste-collecting organization. That option is not practical or reasonable, McCulloch said. “The suggestion that we are able to launch our own stewardship program independent of MMBC is a sham.” The MMBC program aims to transfer recycling costs from municipal taxpayers to the producers who generate packaging and printed paper, while collecting more containers and material types than before. But many businesses argue they’re unfairly compelled to pay far higher fees than a similar system run in Ontario. Continued on page A10

Comox council approves slight tax increase in 2014 financial plan Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Comox council approved first, second and third reading to the 2014 financial plan, which sees a general tax increase of 1.1 per

cent on top of 2013 taxes. Subsequent years still budget an overall 2.7-per-cent general taxation increase. There will be no tax increase for businesses within the Town this year. In March, Don Jacquest, director of finance for the Town, stated

in his report to council core expenditures are increasing between one and two per cent for 2012. A two-per-cent increase would mean the Town would have to find $215,000 more revenue. He also added another critical factor in the financial plan

are the Town’s proposed capital expenditures. In the past, large capital budgets were generally funded around $1 million per year from general revenue (property taxes). This year, Jacquest said the Town has focused on projects

L’Arche given official go-ahead by Courtenay council

Record Staff

Courtenay council has given the green light to L’Arche Comox Valley to construct a second residence to house developmentally disabled clients. Amended zoning permits an outreach centre and residential suites at a two-storey property at 1465 Grieve Ave. near Courtenay Elementary. The non-profit charity opened its first residence, Jubilee House, in 2000. The entire project will cost an estimated $1.44 million. A fundraising campaign has generated about $300,000. The target is $800,000. L’Arche hopes to

break ground early in 2015, with occupancy about a year later. To donate, visit www. larchecomoxvalley.org. ••• The Vancouver Island Water Watch

Cumberland residents wishing to express their views about the planned closure of a section of Ulverston Avenue between the two schools can do so at the May 12 council meeting. Cumberland council gave first and second reading last week to the bylaw to close and dispose of the section of Ulverston Avenue between Egremont Road and First Street. The land would be traded with School District 71 for a piece of land at the corner of Silecroft Road and Beaufort Avenue. The district plans to merge the elementary and junior schools to create a learning campus; the road closure would ensure the safety of students and staff as they move from each building. The community can voice its opinion to council at the May 12 meeting or submit it in writing. ••• Council provided feedback on a staff report outlining options for a street closure and special event policy. Among other things, the report listed options for street closure fees, noting example fee rates from other municipalities. But, council voted not to move forward with any fees for street closures. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Local vet helps the flying wounded

Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Although he sees his share of dogs and cats, it’s not uncommon for Comox veterinarian Stacey Gastis to find himself operating on an eagle. Gastis estimates he’s performed around 100 surgeries on birds such as the one he was operating on Tuesday — an injured eagle found on Quadra Island last weekend. Gastis said the injury – a broken bone in the bird’s right wing – is common this time of the year. “It’s probably the most common injury we see, especially depending on when they’re flying, what’s going on, and when they’re roadside,” he explained. “It seems to be this time of year. The birds are going through their mating rituals, and adults are watching and challenging for territory.” The bird was caught and is under the care of the Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, which works with Gastis to assess injured wildlife and rehabilitate them for eventual release into the wild. Gastis — who has been working with the organization for more than 20 years — performs the surgeries free of charge. Reg Westcott, wildlife rescue educational outreach worker, noted despite the fracture, the eagle should be able to return to the wild within around four weeks of recovery. With animals starting to nest next month, the public is encouraged to report orphaned, ill or injured wildlife, before interfering, to MARS at 250-337-202. To raise funds and awareness, the organization is hosting its third annual Walk for Wildlife at the Courtenay Airpark, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information on the event or the organization, visit www.wingtips.org or search for MARS on Facebook. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

‘The track the riders built’

Renee Andor Record Staff

Coal Hills BMXers are riding a fresh new track this season, thanks to a recently completed facelift of the track in Cumberland. Coal Hills BMX VP Linda Yaretz says the upgrade was done partly because the track will host a national race this summer. But, “it’s not just for the nationals; we really want to do this for the start of our season so the riders have an opportunity to race the track at its best,” continues Yaretz, noting all upgrade work was done on a volunteer basis. “The community has come together. We put it out there that this is what we were doing — we used social media and e-mail … and all members have been taking part, whether they put in 10 minutes or six hours.” Preliminary work started in February with the brunt of it done in March. The whole track received two or three inches of new soil, which had to be smoothed out using machinery and by raking the track by hand. Kids and parents worked to get the track ready in time for the first race of the season Saturday, April 19. Yaretz says the refinished track has been dubbed, ‘The

track the riders built’ because riders suggested ways it could be improved once the decision was made to do the upgrade. Kayt Chambers’ husband Andrew Templer and their sevenyear-old son Isaac use

Kayt Chambers the track regularly and the family volunteered to help with the track work. Chambers notes Isaac has been BMXing since he was three, as she points out the sense of community at Coal Hills. “The atmosphere at this club is really about participation; it’s not a competitive environment,” says Chambers, adding it’s very much a familyfriendly organization.

Grant money will help build a better Friendship Mandy Larade Record staff

The Wachiay Friendship Centre Society is receiving a $34,500 grant from the BC Creative Spaces program to help expand usable space at the McPhee Avenue facility. Wachiay’s executive director Michael Colclough said that the grant will be a huge help to the centre. “We’ve already had to move someone out of this office to make room for screen printing,” Colclough said. The society has a 35-week screen printing course for students. Recently having been approved, students are now able to count this program for course credits in their high school education. More improvements are in the works, including the addition of another level to the centre’s indoor space, while getting rid of the drop ceiling. The money was one of 41 grants presented to non-profit cultural organizations, First Nations and friendship centres, totalling $804,000. Grants for various arts and cultural organizations were given to improve facilities, develop new spaces and upgrade equipment. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Coralee Oakes spoke in a press release on Apr. 9, announcing the grants given. “Arts and culture organizations add vitality and expression to community life,” Oakes said. “Arts infrastructure funding will enable great local organizations and First Nations communities to expand, renovate and improve their creative spaces.

MMBC: Fight not over yet Continued from A3

Critics say MMBC’s three-member interim board is controlled by executives with multinational firms like Unilever and Proctor and Gamble who have manipulated the launch of the new program to their benefit rather than the interests of most B.C. businesses. Mike Klassen, B.C. director of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, said he’s not aware of any cities reducing property taxes as a result of expected MMBC savings. “That’s one of the things that’s been most misleading – the idea that this was going to save money for the general taxpayer,” he said. Klassen argues consumers will pay twice – their local taxes won’t go down but they’ll also pay higher retail prices as businesses pass along MMBC charges. He said most mayors and councils are being cautious and aren’t spending MMBC savings until they actually arrive –  meaning there’s still opportunity to freeze the rollout. “That suggests to me they’re also very wary of the program and have a fallback program in case things don’t work,” Klassen said. “The world doesn’t all of a sudden turn upside down if we pause this program and take some time to reflect on how to do this well.” Small businesses with single storefronts have been exempted by the Province from MMBC’s requirements.

help British Columbia’s vibrant cultural life continue to flourish.” The Wachiay Friendship Centre Society is under the British Columbia Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres (BCAAFC). Other organizations that received grants include the Evergreen Cultural Centre Society in Coquitlam, the Island Mountain Arts Society in Wells, the Stage North Theatre Society in Fort St. John and the Okanagan Symphony Society. Over the 2014-2015 year, the government of British Columbia plans to invest more than $60 million into artists, art organizations and cultural institutions.

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Having a chance to drive the base car all the way up to the Golf R showed just how good the base car is. Zack Spencer Visit the photo gallery at DrivewayCanada.ca

I have already had a chance to drive three examples of the new Inside edition in Europe so I can offer The upside to having a slightly you a sneak peek at what this bigger platform is interior space very popular VW has going for it and the cabin of the latest Golf This new Golf before it arrives here. does feel bigger, especially sideThe all-new car might look like to-side. The centre console is family is set to the previous Golf but it is built on wider and the dash is fitted with take on some very a platform that is shared across all-new switches and dials.

Having a chance to German manufacturer. drive the base car all the way up segment. This new platform, called MQB, to the Golf R showed just how Zack Spencer enables the engineers to build all good the base car is. The only kinds of new products, be they difference is the sportier seats bigger, smaller, wider or taller. What went into and splashier trim on the more expensive cars, the design of the Golf represents a big step but the overall design is the same from car to forward for Volkswagen as the latest model is car and all exemplify the simple, yet elegant 100kg lighter than the outgoing car but it is approach VW takes with all its interiors. bigger, stiffer and safer than before. Drive Looks Gone is the old 2.5-litre. 5-cylinder, replaced It could be argued that the new Golf looks too by an all-new 1.8-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder much like the older model but interacting with base engine. This engine too produces 170 but this new product quickly displays a level of is more efficient, responsive and features state refinement and finish that might be found in an of the art technology.

the S3. A smart shopper might want to wait for the R over the S. Verdict This new Golf family is set to take on some very established players in the compact segment. With a hatchback design, this car has always been a more practical design than sedans like the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. With superb road manners, advanced engines and German engineering, the starting price looks like a winner. A big reason for this is the Golf is assembled in Mexico and these cars come into Canada without duty, (Thanks NAFTA) so VW added more content and kept the price low. The good news for diesel lovers is that the TDI engine will be available right out of the gate and now represents about 50 percent of Golf sales. This engine too has been modified to make it as fuel efficient as possible. All told, the Golf is more polished car than much of the competition and offers a trim level and price for all types of buyers, from basic to flat-out performance. zack.spencer@drivewaybc.ca The Lowdown Power: 1.8L turbo with 170hp, 2.0L turbo with 210hp, 2.0L turbo with 300hp and 2.0L diesel.

2015 Hyundai Sonata three years after introducing a redesign. It incorporates design touches now appearing in sibling models, including a deeper grille that more resembles an upmarket Lexus. Interior materials are upgraded and a large central display matches the design trend of its competitors. Two trims are added; a sporty XSE with some luxury touches and a Hybrid SE. Toyota sticks with its 2.5-litre, four-cylinder, and 3.5-litre, six-cylinder engines plus its Hybrid Synergy Drive.

Hyundai would like to put a serious dent in the Toyota Camry success story with its own mid-size sedan – the redesigned Sonata. It’s likely the introduction of a sharp-looking Sonata in 2011 helped prompt Toyota into taking a serious look at upping the ante in the Camry. Other competitors have also risen to the challenge. Now the seventh-generation, newly styled, sharper-looking 2015 Sonata raises the

Truck tents come in a variety of shapes and sizes for a wide range of vehicles.

Truck tents all the rage this year

‘‘

Invest in an air mattress or you will be sporting a set of marks on your back resembling the ribs in the truck’s bed. Ian Harwood

Hyundai

The one domestic manufacturer that did show up with something more exciting than the rest was Jeep, which introduced the compact Renegade. It is the iconic brand’s first foray into the small SUV segment. Its funky looks and fuel efficiency should make it an urban dweller hit but it also boasts best-in-class off-road capability, which may just bring in buyers from the growing outdoor adventure seekers. Two engine choices: a 2.4-litre Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 paired to the segment’s first nine-speed automatic transmission, or a 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine with six-speed manual transmission. Prices for all of the above will be announced closer to launch, after pencils have been sharpened and each company figures out how it can undercut competitors. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

Camping is fun and most of us have done it at one time or another. Of course, it can be miserable without a decent tent that is easy to set up and keeps you dry and comfortable. One of the hottest products on the market today is called “truck tent.” Napier Enterprises developed it and it makes sense for those people that like to go camping, but do not like to sleep on the ground. The truck tent is exactly as it sounds: A tent for your truck. This tent sits in the open bed of your truck with the tent poles designed to fit in the

stake pockets of your box rail. The tent also comes with a fly for the rain and an awning off the back to cover climbing in and out. And they have tents

available for just about any truck. The cost is around $289, depending on the truck. Invest in an air mattress or you will be sporting a set of marks on your back resembling the ribs in the truck’s bed, don’t ask me how I know. SUV owners should especially like the tents that are designed with them in mind. These tents feature a docking collar that fits around the back of your sport-ute so your vehicle is inside your tent. When you need your vehicle, you just remove the collar and zip it up. Cost is $379. For hunters there is a Camo version featuring the Mossy Oak break up design. Just be careful sticking your head out the back in the early morning. The newest tent to their product line is the Backroadz truck tent. This value priced tent line fits most pickups and sleeps two comfortably. Easy setup utilizing shock-corded fibreglass poles and offers 65 inches of head room.

I surprised my family with a trip to Hawaii. They didn’t have a clue how I paid for it. But they thought I was the best dad in the world. While we were away, I bought a car on eBay. It had over 350,000 km on it. No one will want to buy this piece of junk, I thought. Unless. I could just lower the mileage on it a little bit. And it won’t hurt anybody, right? One problem – I had no idea how to change an odometer*. But as it turns out, it’s much easier than I’d expected. With an odometer tool, I changed the reading to 164,500 km. Still a lot, but less than half the real clicks. My ad: “Minivan – old but in great condition! Only 164,500kms - it sat in my garage for the last 5 years. Must sell. If you’re looking for an older, but reliable and safe vehicle, call my cell and we’ll negotiate.” Looking back, I realized I’d knocked almost 200,000 km off the vehicle. But I shined it up and put some newer used tires on it so they wouldn’t give away its true condition. Will this get me in trouble? I wondered. I wasn’t doing anything wrong, really – this just gives me a chance to make some more money on the vehicle. I got a phone call from a young single mom who could only afford an older vehicle. We decided to meet at her son’s school. As I was showing her the car, I noticed the carpet, the door handles and the pedals kind of gave away its true condition. Hopefully she’s too naïve to notice, I thought.

Forty minutes later, our exchange was complete. I probably made an extra $2,000 because of the odometer! If I’d only done this to all the other cars I sold! Suddenly, my mind began processing the implications. That minivan was pretty much at the end of its life. That young mom is expecting the vehicle to last her for a few more years. At best, I see it lasting one more. Parts will start failing, calling for expensive repairs. I’m certain she doesn’t have the money for that. All I’m hoping is that it doesn’t break down on the highway. Maybe there was a reason I never did it before. Maybe, just maybe, I had a conscience up until now.

*Odometer: The law allows an odometer to be replaced when broken, but the repair must be recorded and the true mileage needs to be disclosed. CarProof and ICBC vehicle history reports can reveal more about how far a vehicle has really traveled. Even AirCare, where available, can help. And Walt is wrong; altering an odometer is a crime.

“I’d knocked off 200,000 km. Hopefully, she’s too naïve to notice”

Three cars either loved or loathed By Rob Sass The old saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” wasn’t coined in reference to cars, but it might as well have been. Some cars, such as the 1963-67 Corvette Sting Ray and Jaguar E-Type, are almost universally admired, while others are passionately loved by some and loathed by others. Here are three of the most polarizing: 1. 1963-64 Studebaker Avanti: The Avanti was a “Hail Mary” play to save the ailing Stude-

baker Corporation, with a stunning European-style GT car. Ardent Avanti fans point to its timeless styling, which was supervised by the great Raymond Loewy, and the fact that the car remained in production in one form or another for five decades. Non-fans find the grille-less front end and porthole-like headlights to be a non-starter. 2. 1971-73 Buick Riviera: The Boattail Riviera was one of the last truly audacious GM creations, and William Mitchell pulled out all of the stops with a huge, dramatic design including a T:8.5”of some great 1930s pointed boattail reminiscent

cars. Haters just find it huge and over-the-top. 3. 1955-75 Citroën DS: In its native France, the DS can do no wrong. The letters “D-S” in French sound remarkably like the French word for “goddess.” Then the French also think that Jerry Lewis is a god. To most Americans, the sci-fi style of the DS just comes off as whale-like and weird. Rob Sass is the vice-president of content for Hagerty Insurance, the world’s leading specialist provider of classic car and boat insurance. Learn more at hagerty.ca and you can email rsass@hagerty.com

Truck tents: Protective straps an essential extra A quick tip: Order the Sportz strap protectors for $24.99. These strap protectors will save the finish on the side of your truck and prevent scratches as the wind moves you and your tent around. There are many combinations available from this company, so look them up at www. napierenterprises.com.

YES SELFISH NOT shellfish, owing

to the mindset running rampant in the aquaculture industry that the government (us hard working taxpayers) owe them and need to constantly support them financially. Recently, there have been numerous media reports about acidification devastating the local scallop farm. I’m sure we are all sympathetic that jobs are lost due to our use of fossil fuels, but the industry must accept some of the responsibility. Boats and small engine emissions are not regulated and when at their tenures, they are constantly spewing carbon into the atmosphere which adds significantly to the acidification of the oceans. As is the norm, when anything goes wrong in the “selfish” industry, the government is lobbied to throw more taxpayer $$$$ at the problem. The company in the news was given $128,000 in 2010, $25,000 in 2011 and $70,000 in 2012 and who knows how much more. In the meantime, they seem unconcerned when their equipment goes astray. Local beaches have been littered over the years with approximately 100 large (400 mm) black floats imprinted with their company name. This lost equipment attitude is indicative of most “selfish” companies and even though collected and offered back, no one seems interested in re-using perfectly good equipment. Tons of plastic then ends up in the landfill, yet they want more and more government grant money.

This shellfishery calls itself green and sustainable yet the “selfish” industry’s definition of sustainable pertains to their product only and does not include the marine ecosystems. DFO has now passed

off tenure installation and maintenance inspections to the licence holder which opens up a whole new can of sea worms! Lastly, with all this media attention on the effect of acidification on the “selfish” industry, we have neglected to consider the real issue-soon all calcium dependent creatures, indigenous or implanted will cease to exist due to acidification of our oceans. How sad is that?

IS THE CBC so desperate, or just so plain disrespectful, that they need to chime in with the rest of the world when it comes to being willing to blaspheme the name of God for the sake of a chuckle? Just because a woman in Newfoundland is at her snowbound front door with her son stuck in the snowdrift and he ends up knocking some snow inside, does that justify using the Lord’s name in vain and then putting it on the national news? God said don’t use His name in vain.  It was one of His Ten Commandments, not His Ten Suggestions. Does that somehow get nullified if it’s just a joke? My Bible has a warning in Galatians 6: 7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Thankfully God loves us and will forgive us if we come to the place where we trust in the redeeming blood of the very Holy One whose name you have partaken in blaspheming. What do you think would happen if you did that with Muhammad?  How well would a “laugh” like that go over? Does freedom mean licence to disrespect, insult, mock and laugh at God?  I understand that on the Internet, anything goes. Silly me, somehow I expected more from our national television news providers.   I guess the joke is on me.

mented that the risk to occupants from flooding at Maple Pool Campground is low and is limited simply to “wet feet”. We must point out, once again, that the risk is indeed real and significant. The City witnessed flooding in some occupied campsites at Maple Pool that was knee-deep or higher. The Comox Valley Emergency Program created Emergency Evacuation guidelines for Maple Pool in 2010, which included guidelines on which campsites were unsafe to occupy during the flooding season (October 15 to May 1). However in both the 2011/2012 and 2012/2013 flood seasons, Maple Pool was found in violation of these guidelines, placing several trailers in the high risk zone. Maple Pool has a history of significant flooding in recent years, in both 2009 and 2010, which required evacuation. The City provided assistance with these evacuations. Concerns over resident safety and the hazards witnessed during these floods motivated these legal proceedings. The property nearly flooded again in 2011. This cluster of floods demonstrates that we are not simply dealing

has reviewed the recent court judgment by Justice Baird to allow additional parties to an existing court action between the City of Courtenay and the owner of the Maple Pool Campground. After careful consideration and deliberation, Courtenay council has resolved to proceed with the enforcement of the City’s bylaws in relation to zoning, Official Community Plan (OCP), and flood hazard issues on property. There are many aspects to this case that we are not able to discuss publicly due to the ongoing litigation. Here are the facts that we can talk about: Some have com-

with flood events that only occur “once in 200 years”, although protecting this area and its occupants from the significant major flood that is likely to occur at some point every 200 years remains an important concern. The risks aren’t limited to water. In one November 2011 incident, fast-moving water currents pushed a large fallen tree into a campsite, narrowly missing a resident’s trailer that had pulled away only minutes before. We have attempted to resolve this situation outside the courts numerous times. Rezoning and OCP amendment applications would provide the necessary starting point to address both the legal and safety issues at this site. The City has no motivation other than the very real risks to the campground’s occupants and our taxpayers. While the addition of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms argument by a Maple Pool resident adds another layer of complexity to an already difficult situation, we do not feel this justifies allowing the property owner to continue to ignore municipal regulations. The homeless and vulnerable in our City deserve housing that meets flood protection requirements, and the City is committed to working toward safe housing alternatives for the residents. We appreciate and understand the concerns of those in the community worried about Maple Pool residents. We share those concerns. In February, Council resolved to ask the court that the property owner be allowed a reasonable amount of time to address the zoning and flood hazard issues, or for residents to find alternative housing. Courtenay council is comprised of members from across the political spectrum; yet the majority, fully informed of the facts in the case, believes that this case must continue.

Selling your home sweet home Spring seems to be a typical time for people to test the housing market by listing their homes. Interest rates have remained low over the last couple of years, so more people have been thinking about taking the plunge before rates start to rise.

Sometimes there's not much you can do: •If you're located on a busy street or the local school district is subpar, you probably won't fetch as much as for the same house in a better neighbourhood. • If your house is the only contemporary model in a sea of colo-

Pumped up prices predictable

T

he angst at the pump this week was predictable. Anytime somebody informs you the cost of living is going up by a few hundred dollars, or more, during the next year, the groans are inevitable. Unfortunately, what also seems inevitable is the resignation. Gas price hikes aren’t new, or unusual – particularly, it seems, when a long weekend approaches. It wasn’t that long ago that prices were under a dollar per litre, and at least half the people reading this are going to remember filling up when that rate was less than 30 cents a litre. Every time those rates jumped, people greeted the jump with the same type of response we heard Thursday. And every time, by and large, people continued to do what they’ve always done — filled up their cars and headed out to the highway. The simple fact of the situation is all of us are slaves to the gas pump. Try as we might to avoid it, our society is built around the automobile and has been for at least 60 years. Where we live, where we work, where we learn, where we eat and where we play are often impractical and sometimes impossible to link without the aid of a gas-powered vehicle. Most of us don’t think we can do anything about it; it doesn’t occur to some of us why we should even try. But we need to. We need to start directing our society away from its reliance on gas. It’s easy for some to dismiss the climate change crowd as intellectual zealots, and the 100-mile diet people as trendy hipsters, but the fact remains: we can’t continue down the path. Never mind the environmental issues, we simply will not be able to afford it financially. The future is coming and our lives are going to be different. Start embracing change before change buries us all. – Cowichan News Leader Pictorial/Black Press

Say no to bitumen exports M

y name is David Black. I am the majority owner of Black Press, the company that owns this newspaper. This is the first of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime. I am a reasonably sensible and conservative businessman, not an alarmist. All of the information in this column can be confirmed from public sources. The oil industry wants to export Alberta bitumen to Asia via tankers. Under no circumstances should we allow that to happen. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hundreds of years. Bitumen, even if it is diluted, does not float in sea water if there is sediment present. This has been proven many times, most recently in a thorough Environment Canada study published on November 30, 2013. Page 51 of the study provides graphic evidence of sunken bitumen. Given that there is an abundance of sediment along the B.C. coast, the bitumen will sink rapidly and there will be little chance of recovering any of it if there is a spill. By Northern Gateway’s own admission the likelihood of a bitumen spill at sea is higher than 10 per cent over the next 50 years. Others say that it is much higher than that. We are in agreement with the position taken by the Coastal First Nations that even the slightest risk of a spill of bitumen at sea is unacceptable.  The grounding of the Exxon Valdez in Alaska in 1989 is often held up as an example of how bad an oil spill at sea can be, however, a spill of bitumen at sea

DAVID BLACK would be much worse. The Exxon Valdez carried light crude and lost 250,000 barrels, one eighth of a tanker load. The light oil floated and could be removed from the beaches. Even so, after four years of work with up to 11,000 workers and 1,400 boats involved, less than 10 per cent of it was recovered. Roughly 200,000 birds and many kinds of other wildlife were killed. Approximately 1,300 miles of shoreline were affected and the fishery has yet to fully recover. Bitumen is very different. It would harden up on shore and much of it would sink to the bottom, making it unrecoverable and killing virtually everything with which it came in contact. Imagine if we lost a full tanker load. Some say that, with GPSbased navigation and double hulls, spills such as Exxon Valdez are not possible today. They are wrong. Double hulls do not prevent hull fracture if there is a collision at speed, only if there is a gentle scrape. As for the GPS claim, most marine accidents are caused by human inattention, not by a lack of knowledge about position. All ships carried systems to indicate their location before GPS came along. The Exxon Valdez crew could have glanced at their instruments to determine their location but they didn’t, neither did the crew on the Queen of the North. Marine disasters regularly occur and

a quick search of the internet shows human error is most often the problem. Undoubtedly there will be many more marine accidents in future. Our grandchildren will not thank us if we willingly risk the destruction of the B.C. coast on our watch. Fortunately there is a solution that is beneficial for all concerned: All we have to do is build a refinery at Kitimat. The refinery will convert the bitumen to gasoline, diesel and jet fuel which float and evaporate if they are spilled. Often, little or no spill remediation is required. These refined fuels simply do not cause the habitat destruction of conventional or synthetic crude oil, or anywhere near the devastation caused by bitumen. The second part of this OPED will run in the next issue. It will discuss the enormous valueadd benefits and environmental advantages of a modern green refinery. The pipeline from Alberta and the tanker fleet to export the refined fuels will also be considered. Let me declare my biases. I am for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in BC. I am for creating billions of new tax dollars for government coffers. I am for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. I am for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a modern tanker fleet that carries only refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. I am against shipping bitumen in tankers. If you agree that we should not put bitumen in tankers please contact your local MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on this next month.

Time has come for peace in the Pool

Dear editor, It is time to let the residents and owners at Maple Pool continue to live in peace within the family they have formed. How lucky they are to have such a close and caring community. We should all be so fortunate to live within an area of landowners as generous and philanthropic as the owners of Maple Pool. If the waters of the river rise, they will deal with it, as will many others that have property along the river. Can this unfortunate situation with the city of Courtenay be put to rest and they all just call it finished? The homeless situation in the Valley appears to be a very negative agenda item at council meetings and I for one am really convinced the homeless are never going to get a facility nor will the Maple Pool residents find closure to their plight. Are there really not other issues of importance after so many years that can be dealt with at council meetings? That appears to be the only situation ongoing since I moved to this Valley. Is it yet time to move on to other battles (sorry, I mean issues). Valerie Desharnais, Comox Valley

Big-box profit comes at social cost Dear editor, As yet another box store comes to Courtenay at the Crown Isle Shopping Centre in the form of Dollarama, another fast food McDonald’s outlet, and another Jiffy Lube, we witness the Comox Valley’s ‘race to the bottom’ and the one-of-a-kind character of our community being lost. With decisions to site more cheap chain outlets here, is the goal to have the Comox Valley become so bland and impoverished that any trace of diversity in our communities eventually vanishes? Box stores and large chain stores fail the definition of ‘economic development’ — because they pack a weak bang for the buck, compared to other economic activity. To measure the ripple effects of a new business, one needs to look ‘upstream’ to see how many supplier jobs the area would gain, and then look ‘downstream’ to see how many jobs would be created by the buying power of the people who work at the new business. The upstream of a box or chain store creates very few jobs for the local economy (i.e., made in

China) and the downstream effects are usually terrible. The retail jobs offered by such stores are often part-time, minimum wage, with no health care or other benefits. Employees of these stores generally have small disposable incomes: after paying for bare necessities, little is left to stimulate the local economy. Building this type of new retail space we’re seeing at Crown Isle just moves sales and low-paying jobs around. It doesn't grow the economy on a long-term basis. And it mostly expands precarious service jobs, rather than attracting valueadded family supporting jobs. The failure of most box stores, chains and fast-food eateries to provide workers with a living wage, full-time or permanent part-time hours with benefits, often forces employees and their families to seek out the assistance of social programs. These are funded by taxpayers and add up to a significant hidden cost that such stores bring into a community. The opening of the ‘new’ retail space at the Crown Isle mall creates the false illusion that the regional economy is

Thanks for the Friendship

Dear editor, I am writing today to tell about a community service that has helped my family through some mighty rough times lately. My family is in the middle of a time beyond times and we found ourselves sitting at the Wachiay Friendship Centre. They not only helped with some support as to what we were going through, they had a safe place for us to talk with the government agency, they gave us a place to sit and be calm after and they fed us. They all went about their very busy day as if there wasn’t anything unusual going on at all. I was so amazed at how much this one small community service does, and how many people work through there. They provided a safe community place for us to feel safe and loved. Thank you to the Wachiay Friendship Centre for doing what they do so well. Alice Knott, Black Creek



prosperous, never mind the closure of stores like Safeway that provides living wages, full-time jobs and benefits to a significant number of people. One need only look at the “for lease”, “for rent” or “for sale” signs spreading over our downtown cores to see there is confusion about prosperity. Whose vision is being realized with this Crown Isle retail expansion - our elected city councillors, Comox Valley Economic Development Society, Regional District, or land developers and paving contractors? A patch of forest is down to make way for the cement monoculture. In the absence of unique development, what about the trees’ value as eco-assets, or the value of trails to the physical and mental well-being of residents? It is time to reprioritize. We have two ways of voting – casting our ballots in the November municipal elections and with our wallets – if we have a choice, do we really need to shop and eat at these retail outlets?

examined in fresh ways. The seminar runs Friday 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday 9:30 a.m. to noon, and Saturday at 5:40 p.m. concluding with a light supper.

Radiothon returns to raise funds

The Children’s Charity and 97.3 The Eagle will team up April 30 and May 1 to present the sixth annual Variety Children’s Radiothon, a fundraiser to help families in the Courtenay and Campbell River areas with children who have special needs — families like Kelsey and James Ruttan and their little girl Talia. Born two and a half months premature, doctors were not confident that Talia would survive. She received specialized care in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at an out-of-community hospital, and after three months was finally strong enough to return home with her parents. Variety helped the Ruttans by covering Kelsey’s accommodation expenses so she could be near Talia in the NICU every day. As Kelsey recalls, “It was a huge weight off our minds and it enabled us to focus on Talia’s care.” Today Talia has a form of cerebral palsy, is G-tube fed, has hearing aids due to partial hearing loss, needs oral therapy to help her learn to swallow, and physiotherapy and occupational therapy to help loosen and stretch her muscles. But her mom says she is a happy one-year-old and her future looks bright. “Courtenay and Campbell River and the surrounding communities have always been very supportive of our Radiothon fundraiser, and we’re grateful for that,” says Bernice Scholten, executive director of Variety. “It’s about families helping families which is very powerful. We’re asking for your support

tions for wheelchairs, transportation and accommodation costs for families whose child is receiving treatment and an out-ofcommunity hospital, and communication devices and therapies. On April 30 and May 1 tune in to 97.3 The Eagle, donate to the Variety Children’s Radiothon and make a difference in the life of a child who has special needs.

COURTENAY, B.C.

James brings comedy stylings to ‘rockin’ audience’ Mandy Larade Record Staff

After two years, comedic powerhouse Ron James is returning to the Comox Valley on tour, and it could be the last time for awhile. Beginning in St. John’s, N.L., James’ ‘Take No Prisoners’ tour has gone from the East Coast to Ontario this year. After coming to B.C., the tour will continue on through the prairies and back to Ontario. Through the numerous stand-up tours across Canada, James says, “The country and I discovered each other one kilometre at a time.” With The Ron James

Show wrapped up after five seasons on CBC, James is relieved that there’s more time on his hands. “It was non-stop work. I might be looking at a sabbatical after this tour... I need to recharge the batteries, and take a minute to look at the river,” James says. He plans to travel to Europe and Australia once his tours for this year are completed. James explains that with any profession people are passionate about, it’s necessary to take breaks after working so hard, adding that a comedian’s goal of ‘lightening the load’ can’t quite be accomplished if the come-

JAMES IS CONTINUING his tour, including a show in Courtenay, May 8. PHOTO BY MANDY LARADE dian himself is burnt out. “I think that it’s important to try and shift

gears from time to time, and make sense of the chaos we’re all walking

through.” On Thursday May 8, James will be entertaining at the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay. Describing the Comox Valley as always being “a rockin’ audience,” James is excited to travel west next month. “I like B.C. in particular. It leaves a magical spell over you,” James says. Along with addressing local issues in each community he visits, James is eager to provoke constant laughter from his audiences across the country. “If an usher’s not wiping the seats down after you’ve left, I’m not doing my job,” he says. The maritimer comedian has continually grown

a passion for the heart of comedy, seeking to bring its spirit wherever he goes. “It [comedy] is about real life. It’s about the daily struggle; the victories and baby steps; trying to make sense of this rapidly changing planet,” James says. Although the world itself may be large and complicated, James states that the mission of comedy is straight-forward. “As the world gets complex in its issues, the equation for comedy is simple: get laughs or get off.” To purchase tickets, call the Sid Williams Theatre ticket centre at 250-3382430 ext. 1.

All-girl rock ‘n’ roll at The Wav From the high mountain hunting grounds of northern B.C. emerges Miss Quincy; knife strapped to her leg and guitar slung over her back, ready to rock ‘n’ roll like the bad ass … excuse me, lady, she is. Trusty sidewomen in The Showdown at the ready, Quincy gives a sly glance and launches into a raunchy blues riff, promising the expectant audience, “This one’s gonna hurt…” It’s truth in imagery for Canadian all-girl rock ‘n’ roll band Miss Quincy and the Showdown, who just released Roadside Recovery, the third full-length album for Quincy and first for the full band, April 8. The album is a testament to the touring warriors Quincy and the band truly are; having clocked more than 100,000 km while honing their musi-

cal skills crossing no less than seven countries, playing every dirty barroom, music club, house concert and festival on the way. Now, they are making their way to The Waverley Hotel May 2. They’ve mostly seen it all, made their choices good or bad, and now they’re gonna tell you all about it. You won’t find them singing pretty pages out of their diaries, this is down and dirty roots & blues and straight up rock n’ roll. Roadside Recovery was produced and recorded by Matt Rogers (The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer) at Afterlife Studio and Neighborhood Studios, who took the road grit and whiskey regrets from the band and liberally scrubbed every track with them. ”Bad Love” leads with

a thumping heartbeat, building to a screeching riff; it’s a hot little number that makes you wanna crank it to eleven and jump up on the speakers. The album secures it’s fate with “What is Life If It Ain’t Strange” and “Making Money“, while it settles in with slow cookers like “Talkin Trash” and “Take It To The Well“. Roadside Recovery is full of soul and vibrant life, breaking boundaries for Miss Quincy and the Showdown, or rather, smashing them down in the style of Joan Jett or the Black Keys. Miss Quincy began her music career in the wild mountains of northern B.C., though she’s been a touring warrior since the beginning, releasing her debut Your Mama Don’t Like Me in 2010, and follow-up Like The Devil Does in 2012.

MISS QUINCY BEGAN her music career in the wild mountains of northern B.C. Her all-girl rock ‘n’ roll band - including the Showdown - are coming to The Waverley May 2. In the past two years with The Showdown, Miss Quincy has chalked up over 250 shows and 15 festivals through seven countries throughout Europe and North America, winning fans from near and

far. These days it’s full steam ahead for the band, who with Roadside Recovery, will cross Canada and return to play throughout Europe again in 2014. Tickets are $12 in

advance, and available at Bop City, The Waverley Hotel, online or by calling 250-336-8322. For more information, visit http://missquincy.ca/ — Cumberland Village Works

Painting duo reunited at Pearl Ellis

Wilma Richardson and Carole Goodwin had their first show together nearly 25 years ago, entitled ‘Oil and Water DO Mix.’ Now, all these years later, they celebrate their reunion at Pearl Ellis Gallery. Richardson, then and now, is a very traditional oil painter, creating beautiful florals and landscapes in infinite detail. Her paintings are a feast for the eye and pure wonder for the heart and soul. Goodwin began as a watercolour painter and currently is working in a different medium: experimental and abstract painting. She prepares the surface with texture and gold leafing before beginning to paint, using acrylics. This process allows the work to evolve spontaneously. Painting together twice a week, the duo have continued to develop their own styles, and at the same time share a deepening friendship of support for one another as artists.

WiL brings back legendary live show From the time WiL Mimnaugh can remember he was sitting in on ‘The Friday Night Garage Sessions’ where his parents would gather friends and jam to the likes of Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins and Hank Williams. Before reaching his teens he would practice on his father's old Yamaki. Noting his son’s aptitude, ‘Billy’ woke on Christmas 1981 to find his very own Fender acoustic sitting under the tree. He headed to Vancouver to try his hand as a chalkboard artist for restaurants. But music was never far from his mind so he decided to head home to Calgary. An impromptu acoustic performance led to his first gig. Soon enough, he was playing covers to a packed house five nights a week. Being the early ‘90s, that meant Nirvana, Jeff Buckley, Pearl Jam and Radiohead, but one day he decided to write his own music. In 2002 WiL released his debut album Both Hands, which sold 6,000 copies in its first year. He received three WCMA nominations including a nod for Producer and Best Live Act. He then toured the next three years with the likes of Colin James, Xavier Rudd, The Tea Party and Matthew Good. WiL became intrigued with writ-

ing for film in 2008 when Big Life was placed in a hospital scene in the ABC TV series Eli Stone, yet it was while recording In This Together, and working with producer/ composer Bruce Leitl, that WiL started coming into his own as a songwriter. The pairing, by friend/mentor Dan McManus, was initiated to develop songwriting skills and melody structure. Tragically, Bruce passed away before the album was finished. “Bruce was the Porsche and I was the pickup," WiL says. "He and I had vastly different musical tastes but differences aside he helped me become a better songwriter." In 2011, his song Roam was chosen to represent a Travel Alberta ad campaign. WiL was then commissioned to compose the theme song (called Ride) for the Calgary Stampede’s 100th anniversary. WiL is producing/ recording his fifth album. He performs May 3 at the Little Red Church in Comox. Doors at 7 p.m. show at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are $18, available at Bop City, Polka Dot Pants, (250) 336-0303 or cumberlandvillageworks.com. Cost is $22 at the door. http://www.ibreakstrings.com/

Tinkling the ivories at Comox golf club The Comox Golf Club is hosting a concert on April 27, that chamber music enthusiasts will not want to miss. Japanese pianist Shoko Inoue will be performing a selection of classical music from composers including Johann Sebastien Bach, Franz Schubert and Franz Liszt. Inoue was a prize winner at the Cleveland International Piano Competition,

first-prize winner for contemporary music at the Frinna Awerbuch Competition and first prize winner at the Chopin Competition in New York, where she made her Carnegie Hall debut. Other notable appearances include a solo recital at the World Piano Pedagogy Conference in Las Vegas, the Shostakovich Festival in Rome St. Cecilia Hall, a recital in Palm Beach, Fla. and sever-

al solo concerts at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Ont. In addition to her commitment to enhance life through music, Inoue is active as a soloist, chamber musician, recitalist and teacher in Canada, the United States, Japan and Europe. Her broad and varied repertoire is remarkable and extremely well received, and successful performances attest to her ability

to bring the transcendental world of the composers’ vision to listeners. Inoue began playing the piano at the age of three, studying with Shun Sato and Takashi Hironaka. Following her appearance at the Casadesis International Competition, she traveled to the United States to study under full scholarship with Sergei Babayan, world renowned concert pianist, teacher, and art-

ist in residence at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Following that, Inoue studied with Marc Durand and John Perry in Toronto. As a student of Marc Durand, she received her M.A. in Piano Performance from the University of Montreal, Quebec. The performance starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 and available at the door. - Comox Golf Club

Annual Hornby Blues Week coming to Sid

Hornby Island’s Blues Week has become an annual rite of spring in the music world. For the last 15 years, Hornby has come alive with blues aficionados who come from all over North America to gather for one purpose: to learn, make and propagate blues and roots music under the guidance of some of best musicians in Canada. For Hornby, spring is marked by Blues Week and the singing and crying of Stratocasters, the Piedmont thrum of an acoustic J50, and a thumping bass or a bluesy harmonica train rift. Then, after working all week at the Hornby Island Blues Workshop and firming up their groove in two mid-week concerts, these 10 worldclass musicians are ready to bring you a

one-night-only performance exclusive to the Sid Theatre. Loaded with three hours of all the blues you love - Memphis,

... the Blues ❝ Odyssey is quite

simply the best blues review that you will see this year.

Delta, or country; and whatever blues shake you down, be they jump, juke or barrelhouse, The Blues Odyssey is quite simply the best blues review that you will see this year. The list of headliners includes 2014’s Maple Blues Award Guitar Player of the Year, Paul Deslauriers, 2014 Maple Blues Award Female Vocalist of the Year, Angel For-

rest and 2014’s Maple Blues Bassist of the Year, Gary Kendall. Odyssey’s remaining players are no stranger to blues awards themselves, having compiled enough of that kind of hardware to fill a railcar. They include drummer fatale, Maureen Brown Gratton; ace guitarist, Jack de Keyser; groove master, Rick Fines; the impressive roll and shake guitarist Brandon Isaak; one of Canada’s top harp players, Al Lerman and closing out the lineup the incomparable Kenny ‚‘Blues Boss’ Wayne. Tickets for the May 10 concert can be

purchased at the Sid Williams Theatre or online at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com/tick-

Get walking for wildlife Sale to help YANA The Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) will hold its third annual Walk for Wildlife fundraiser Saturday, April 26 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. This fundraising event takes place at the north end of the Courtenay Airpark by the Park Café (Cliffe & 20th St. behind Comox Valley Kayaks & Canoes), one of nature’s most interesting theatres for bird watching. The walk is an enjoyable 1km stroll along the banks of the Courtenay River Estuary. The paved pathway easily accommodates wheelchairs and strollers. Of course the family pooch is welcome to tag along on leash. Whether you like to meander, jaunt, skip or scoot, ‘The Walk’ is an excellent way for animal lovers and everyone concerned with the environment to support a very important cause. All proceeds go toward the demanding expense of providing 24/7 hospital facilities plus costly medicine and food for over 400 injured and/or sick wildlife which come to MARS each year. The walk will also be part of the Earth

The Comox Valley Kids’ Clutter next sale is on Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Courtenay Legion on Cliffe Avenue. The sale offers local families the opportunity to either buy and/or sell gently used children’s clothing, toys and equipment. This semi-annual event has grown over the years and has been run by Chelsey Newton. Chelsey has supported local charities, such as YANA by donating partial proceeds from the sale. Recently, Newton chose to donate the Kids’ Clutter Sale to YANA, so for the first time, this will be the YANA Kids’ Clutter Sale. The Kids’ Clutter Sale makes selling items much easier and also offers the opportunity to buy well-

priced and gently-used items for children. There are hundreds of items to choose from and items often disappear quickly at this popular sale. Partial proceeds from the sale are returned to the sellers and the balance will help YANA with the work they do for families. YANA is a local charity that provides accommodation and funding to Comox Valley families who need to travel outside the community for medical treatment for a child under 19 or for a pregnant mother. If you are interested in selling items, volunteering at the event or want to get in on the great deals, visit www.yanacomoxvalley.com, find us on facebook, or e-mail us at yanakidsclutter@gmail.com.  — YANA (You Are Not Alone) 

MARS Ambassador Birds will accompany educational outreach worker Reg Westcott to the Walk for Wildlife. File Photo Day celebrations, organized by the Comox Valley Conservation Strategy in an effort to make all of us aware of our environment. Those of you who participated in the Walk in 2012 may recall that during the Walk, MARS was called out to rescue an Osprey which became entangled with an eagle. The Osprey was in rehab for 16 months and was released in August of 2013 along the Courtenay estuary. MARS Ambassador Birds will accompany our educational outreach worker Reg Westcott, who will

answer your questions and outline some of the challenges that face a wildlife rescue organization. MARS Founder and manager, Maj Birch will also be on hand to share her vast knowledge with the public. Registration and the walk begin at 10 a.m. The $10 registration fee is waived if participants obtain sponsoring pledges from their friends,

neighbours, co-workers and families. You may download pledge sheets online at www. wingtips.org. The forms are also available for pick-up from various Comox Valley merchants listed on the MARS website. Adult and child prizes will be awarded for the most pledges and most funds raised. — Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Puzzling… Fun by the Numbers: Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

SOLUTION TO LAST WEEK’S PUZZLES

APR. 27 to May 3, 2014 The luckiest signs this week: Leo, Virgo and LIbra

ARIES You may feel trapped in the middle of a whirlwind this week. Try and slow down a bit before you feel dizzy. Work at channeling your ener­ gies more profitably. TAURUS There’s a good chance that you have to replace a colleague at work for an indefinite period of time. This will cause you some additional stress, but it will be very profitable for you in the end. GEMINI People under this sign are great communicators. You are treated to the opportunity of speaking in front of a large crowd. A few people might dare to criticize you; don’t take it personally. CANCER It’s not always easy to reconcile work and family life. You have to juggle your schedule in order to meet all your responsibilities on both fronts.

LEO You may decide to leave on a trip on the spur of the moment. You probably need this break in order to come to a difficult decision and find peace of mind. VIRGO You might have to reconsider who your friends really are. Fortunately, some of them could finally manage to repay you what they owe. LIBRA Go through your bills and see if any mistakes have been made. You might have to devote a good part of the week to recovering your money. SCORPIO You finally receive the right treat­ ment where your health is con­ cerned, or you discover a new diet that suits you and brings some quick results.

SAGITTARIUS You are suddenly very popular with your friends. If you’re single, you are rather surprised to realize that suitors are vying against one another in trying to seduce you. CAPRICORN Your family takes centre stage in your life this week. Your loved ones are very demanding of you. Your plans to move are also looming on the horizon. AQUARIUS Your comings and goings are more complicated than usual, or maybe communications are not always very clear. Your straight talking has a posi­ tive impact on those close to you. PISCES Money is a source of worry, on oc­ casion. Don’t hesitate to take the time to negotiate with the people involved in order to resolve your financial situation.

essary to guide the art-making experience and to help the individual find personal meaning through it along the way. The art making/creative process in art therapy is an opportunity to express oneself imaginatively, authentically, and spontaneously. This experience can lead to personal fulfillment, emotional healing, and transformation.  Also, the art is a means of symbolic communication. In a nutshell, we’re dealing with two main components; the process and the product. Art therapy is a combination of these components and is fulfilling, rewarding, satisfying, and, most of all, healing.  Art therapy sessions can be short or long-term. The use of art can assist in getting at the problem and the solution through a concrete process with art materials.  This is a gentle method of exploration that can be beneficial through making the problem visible and tangible. The materials provided are varied.  To ask a question of the counsellors, for a response in future columns, e-mail info@pacifictherapy.ca.

They’re coming from all over the world to compete in the 32nd annual Royal LePage Comox Valley Snow to Surf Adventure Relay Race. This year’s mountain-tomarina event goes Sunday, April 27. Teams of nine or 10 people will ski, snowshoe, run, kayak, bike and canoe from Mount Washington to the Comox Marina. The race gets underway around 9 a.m., with the first teams hitting the finish line shortly before noon. There are multiple age categories and all levels of competition, from intense to weekend warrior. Entries come from all over Vancouver Island, Lower Mainland, and the Pacific Northwest. But as always, local interest will focus on the Old HouseComox Valley Nissan Banzai. Although their combined age qualifies them for the Masters category, the perennial Snow to Surf powerhouse will be in the Open Men’s division again this year. Bill Brett formed the team in 1995, and there are still five original members on the squad. Brett has brought in some new members this year, and says the Banzai expects tough competition from the North Island Tanks as well as a veteran Victoria squad and an unknown entity from Calgary. Motorists are asked to obey course marshals along the route. For more information, visit www.snowtosurf.com.

Wiebe vs. the world Earle Couper Record Staff

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It certainly will be this Saturday for Aleasha Wiebe as there is a pancake breakfast fundraiser to help the young Cumberland BMX racer go to the world championships. Wiebe has been racing for 14 years and ranked nationally and provincially for the last 10 years. She is now planning to attend the UCI BMX World Championships in Rotterdam, Holland on July 22-27. She is currently fundraising to attend this event and is looking for any help that is available from the public. The Cumberland Br. 28 Legion is putting on a pancake breakfast this Saturday, April 26 from 8 to 10 a.m. Admission is by donation and all are welcome. sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

The road to obtaining an athletic scholarship can be long and winding. Bill Green can show parents of talented student-athletes the steps necessary to navigate that road. Green’s major success story is his son Taylor, who is a member of the MLB Milwaukee Brewers organization. Bill emphasizes that charting the right course early on is essential. “Due to Tayor’s hard work on the field and in school, and my hard work learning about scholarships and the recruiting process, Taylor received interest from 91 colleges and universities.” That interest allowed Taylor to find the right fit for his academic and athletic criteria. After honing his skills with the Comox Valley Blizzard and Parksville Royals, Taylor went to Cypress College. Drafted by the Brewers in 2005, Green climbed quickly through their farm system, twice earning Brewers Organiza-

Since helping his son with the process, Green has worked with over 500 families in B.C. and Washington state and notes his work is attracting interest in Denver, Phoenix and Las Vegas. Now he is turning his attention to the Comox Valley. Green is presenting four free information sessions on athletic scholarships for parents of male/female studentathletes (of all sports)

in Grade 7 to 12 on April 28 and 29 at Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School (Taylor’s alma mater). To accommodate parents’ busy schedules, sessions run at 6:30 p.m. or 8 p.m. both nights, with Monday’s in the library and Tuesday’s in the choir room. Green can be reached at billgreen6@ gmail.com. As a school administrator, teacher and coach, Green understands how athletes can use the education system to their advantage. He designs athlete’s academic, athletic and social lives

around their goals and dreams. Green says it is not enough to sit back and wait for recruiters to come knocking. “This myth might be true for sports’ most outstanding athletes, but it is simply not true for the majority of athletes. You have to take charge of your life and make things happen for yourself.” This realization led Green to turn the recruiting process around – recruiting schools and not vice versa. “My goal is to help families understand the process involved in recruiting and college/ university scholarships so that more kids can feel the joy and fulfillment of combining their academic and athletics at the highest level,” Green said. “The key is to have a clear plan of action so that you are properly prepared as a studentathlete. Without a plan to prepare yourself properly, you will be promoting an inferior product and recruiters will cross you off their lists.” sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

David Arsenault

Family Album

Dec 5, 1943 – April 21, 2014 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of David after a courageous battle with cancer. Dave is survived by his loving wife, Margaret, predeceased by their daughter Michelle. Survived by his stepson Mark, and brothers, Allison (Sharon), Mike (Shirley), Gary (Mary), and sister Annette (Dallas), predeceased by 2 brothers, 2 sisters and his parents. It is with great sadness we have had to say goodbye to Grant Vincent Clements, our loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and brother. He passed away peacefully in Palm Springs, CA at the Eisenhower Medical Center on April 10, 2014 with his loving family with him. He was just shy of 80 years of age and leaves behind; Mary, his wife of 55 years; children Lynn (Glenn), Jeff and Kelly (Jeff); grandchildren Jaclynn and Robyn; and one great-grandchild, Levi. Grant was born to the late Harry Clements and Florence Hayter on April 24th, 1934 in White Sands, PEI. He was the eldest child of the family, predeceased by his brothers William, Angus and Winston; leaving his two sisters Shirlene Keenan and Linda Clements. He grew up and went to school in White Sands, PEI while working on the family potato farm. He was a passionate hockey player in his youth and in his late teens left and went to Prince of Wales College. Grant briefly taught for two years in the early 1950’s in Wood Islands, PEI before embarking upon a career in the RCAF. After completing his NAV training in 1957, he got his operational training in CF100’s in Cold Lake, AB in early 1958. This started a career of thousands of hours flying in a variety of fighter squadrons navigating CF-100’s, CF-101’s and T-33’s. This took him and his family to live all across Canada and Europe including Belgium, France and Germany. His biggest passion in the military was buzzing around up in the clouds, most clearly articulated in one of his favourite poems, ‘High Flight’. After his flying days, he became Base Commander of CFB Beaverlodge, AB from 1973-75. He ended his military career in Winnipeg as one of the original members of Air Command and worked there in Plans until his retirement as a Major in 1981. One to never slow down, the next career would be real estate, joining his wife shortly after his retirement from the military. Grant was still actively working in the business this year with his daughter Kelly. He spent 33 successful years selling, inspiring, mentoring and educating many. He was generous with his time in the community, with friends and business associates. His biggest community accomplishment was his high level of involvement in the Minor Hockey Association in the 1970’s in Comox, BC. Outside of his work, he had a variety of interests; travel, reading, golf, hunting, fishing and of course the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Winnipeg Jets. One of the big occasions every year - one he never missed in over 35 years - was the September Ashern One Box Sharptail Hunt with all of his hunting buddies. He always let it be known that they were hunting, but never seemed to arrive with any spoils from the hunt. Above all, the most important thing to Grant - Dad - was his family. He met his beloved wife Mary Bilinsky in 1957 and married her on July 5, 1958 in Winnipeg. He was incredibly proud of his three children, two grandchildren and the most recent addition, a great-grandchild. A man of the highest integrity with a strong work ethic. A leader. One of curiosity and passions. A grand storyteller full of love and laughter, he will be sorely missed. Viewing will be at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, April 25th, with the service at noon in The 17 Wing Community Chapel located at 2235 Silver Ave off Wihuri (formerly Whytewold Road) to be followed by a Celebration of Life.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Association may be made in Grant’s memory. Funeral arrangements are in care of Gilbart Funeral Home, 309 Eveline Street, Selkirk, Manitoba.  www.gilbartfuneralhome.com

HAPPY 99th BIRTHDAY

Dave had many nieces and nephews whom he adored but had a special bond with Karen and Brock made closer in the last few months during his fight with cancer. A long time member of the Comox Recreation Centre, Dave had many friends he worked out with. He was an avid golf player and enjoyed playing with his golf buddies. Born in Summerside PEI, Dave moved to Ontario first where he worked and after retiring he moved to Comox, a place he loved to live. He loved to walk around Comox and many a time would stop and chat with someone he knew. Cremation has taken place and there will be a Celebration of life at a future date.

Margaret Mary Colquhoun Jones (nee MacLeod) Margaret passed away peacefully on April 16th 2014 at Glacier View Lodge. Margaret was predeceased by her husband Gordon, her son Peter, and her daughter Lorna. She is survived by son Robert (Kathy) in Campbell River, son Donald in San Francisco, and grandchildren Travis (Shannon), Tyler (Jenni), Kieran (Naomi), and Justin. Margaret was born in Newton Mearns, Scotland April 5th 1926. She was raised in Glasgow, Scotland and at 18 she joined the British Army. While serving overseas in Italy, she met her husband-to-be Gordon Jones. They were married in Glasgow August 30, 1947, and eventually had 4 children, Robert, Peter, Lorna, and Donald. The family immigrated to Canada in 1952 and resided in Victoria for many years before moving to Campbell River in 1967. In their retirement Margaret and Gordon were snowbirds and spent many happy winters in southern California. Margaret loved plants and had a good knowledge of horticulture and a passion for gardening. She loved to read, knit, and play card games with friends. Road trips and camping were also favourite activities of hers. Margaret especially loved travelling to visit relatives in Australia and Scotland. In addition she found time to volunteer with the Girl Guides, Glee Club, and Women’s Legion Auxiliary. We would like to acknowledge and thank Glacier View Lodge staff and Dr. Harris for the wonderful care they provided Margaret in her later years. A celebration of Margaret’s life to be announced at a later date. “May your soul’s energy be in a peaceful place, Mum. You will be lovingly remembered by your family�.

Bee talk at Filberg The Comox Valley Horticultural Society is pleased to welcome master beekeeper Brenda Jager to the April 28 meeting. The evening begins at 7 p.m. at the Florence Filberg Centre. Brenda Jager is a master beekeeper, bee breeder, and the apiary inspector for Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Under the Ministry of Agriculture, Brenda provides inspection services on for beekeepers selling bees and is involved with outreach and education programs

throughout communities. She has worked for the last seven years with the BC Bee Breeders’ in research and breeding projects, whose initial goal was to improve the honey bees’ natural resistance to Varroa mites. Brenda started the first cooperative BC Bee Breeders’ Assessment and Training Yard on the coast which is currently involved in assessing cold hardy bee stock from across Canada to supply BC beekeepers with the best possible

stock. ‘Many Bees Live Here’ is the topic of Brenda’s lecture and although she is, without a doubt, an expert on Apis Mellifera, the common European honey bee, she will also speak on life cycles and habitat of a variety of native bees in local gardens and fields. Brenda operates her own bee yards on Gabriola Island, ‘Brenda’s Bees’; selling bees, queens and honey. For more information about the evening or the CVHS please

From Earth Day to Earth Month Earth Hour, Earth Day, Earth Week, Earth Month. It is heartening to see the growth in environmental awareness through the events honouring these momentous titles. What started with twenty million people on April 22, 1970 as a teach-in at numerous American schools and universities to raise awareness of environmental concerns has expanded to 192 countries and well over a billion people in 2013. Even more spectacular is the fact this growing global movement transcends race, religion and social status. Participants from diverse backgrounds are united and focused on saving our planet. No other event in the world accomplishes this phenomenon. And so we should stand together. Through sheer numbers, we are capable of making our governments realize how important our environment and planet are to our continued existence. This is what generates change. We need change. Just think about our province without its forests. They are one of the ecosystems that sets us apart. Fortunately, some forested areas are protected under federal or provincial acts. Even so, changes are in the works to undermine the sanctity of our heritage. So sad. When I need a change of scenery...or a place to walk Sadie...I love to visit one of the local forested parks or green spaces in our Valley. Especially in spring. Anyone who knows me, knows how passionate I am about spring... the constant wonderment of re-birth. The ground is finally waking up from its winter slumber. Every day there is new joy to witness and celebrate. Such pleasure is seeing Trillium ovatum coming into bloom. Many may be more familiar with its common names: Pacific trillium, western white trillium or western wake robin. I like the last one, so designated supposedly because the plant comes into flower just as the robins are “waking up”. So often such events lend themselves to the naming of plants. As pretty as the trillium is, it has great

Erythronium revolutum, AKA pink fawn lilies, are starting to carpet Comox Valley forest floors. Photo by John Cox is Erythronium revolutum, the pink fawn lily. Carpets of them are now appearing in many parts of the valley right now. Such a treat on Easter weekend! I have a special fondness for the Erythronium species. Back when I was a kid, my parents would plan a picnic day in April every year, almost without fail, for my brother, sister and me. Our destination was a little church just outside of Victoria where the surrounding grounds were

richly carpeted with thousands upon thousands of delicate white fawn lilies, Erythronium oregonum. Such a wondrous sight...the memory of which is still awe-inspiring for me years later. These too, were used as food plants by the native peoples. The bulb was collected to be eaten fresh or dried for storage. Saving the Earth... whether it be by the Hour, the Day, by the Week or by the Month... is an important under-
