Whale watch No longer threatened: As humpbacks make slow return to Cowichan, watcher says status decision a mistake Peter W. Rusland

hales swim in the centre of Cowichanian Simon Pidcock’s tourism business. So when asked if Ottawa should return North Pacific humpbacks to Canada’s endangered list — after being dropped last week to the lesser species-of-concern ranking — the Ocean Ecoventures’ owner didn’t hesitate in answering “100%.” Pidcock’s blunt response was backed by his reporting humpbacks have returned to Cowichan waters, and south-island seas, after being wiped out in the past century. “From the 1970s to 1995 we saw very few, then we saw our first humpbacks coming back.

Whale watchers take in the breaching of a humpback in the Salish Sea during one of the tours run out of Cowichan Bay by Ocean Ecoventures. “Last year, we were up to 70 humpbacks in the southern Salish Sea, from Nanaimo to the Sooke area,” said the valley-raised captain who launched his Cowichan Bay whale-watching operation in 2003. To Pidcock, protecting migratory humpbacks — and the whole West Coast ecosystem — from a catastrophic oil-tanker rupture off Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline port at Kitimat, was a no-brainer. “(An oil release) would greatly affect me because the whales we view travel through there,” he said, citing humpbacks, and orcas. “Tourism losses up and down this coast would be huge.” That’s why he was suspicious about why the pro-pipeline feds dropped humpbacks’ status. “I find the timing very interesting, especially with Kitimat’s city council voting ‘No’ for the pipeline (last week),” Pidcock said, noting recent “muzzling” of federal scientists. But Ottawa’s decision cites a significant rebound in humpback populations

teachers. “The district is sending a letter home with students today or tomorrow explaining recess will be cancelled at the seven schools that have it,’’ noted Cowichan District Teachers’ Association president Naomi Nilsson Thursday. School District 79 superintendent Joe Rhodes confirmed the letters were going to those attending the impacted schools and will be effective Monday. “We will be adjusting the day without affecting bus schedules to cancel them as we cannot expect school-based administration to safely supervise and it is too disruptive to send district staff out for 15 minutes in the middle of the work day,’’ added Rhodes. Job action across B.C. in the teachers’ three-phase contract dispute with the provincial government began Wednesday with the withdrawal of supervisory activities. “Supervision is covered off and we recognize that teachers will not be meeting with administration except for emergency reasons,’’ Rhodes pointed out. Phase 2 plans would involve rotating one-day walkouts around the province, but there’s no timeline yet for launching that part of the campaign. bchonda.com

“In Duncan I have a good friend who noticed I had problems following conversations in background noise . . . he suggested I make an appointment with his audiologist, Dr. Miranda. Since birth I, now 77 years old, have had profound hearing loss and have been to many audiologists, clinics and hearing aid technicians looking for help. Owing to this experience, it puts me in the position to judge the quality of examinations . . . I must say that I have never had such a good examination as I had with Dr. Miranda.

Parkland Place fire ruled accidental, but actual cause remains undetermined

After closer inspection: Duncan building inspector pinpoints possible causes within third-floor unit

T

he specific cause of the massive January fire at the Parkland Place apartment building in Duncan remains undetermined. “The most probable ignition sources were deemed accidental, either cigarettes or an electric heater that may have been affected by an animal,’’ indicated David Hewetson, the City of Duncan’s building inspector and local assistant fire commissioner. The fire started in a

third-floor unit at the south end of the four-story complex and displaced more than 100 people from their homes for a few days. A few in the most heavily-damaged units were out longer. Hewetson pointed out the initial site investigation took about a week, with follow-up interviews taking a further two weeks. “The investigation indicated the area of origin and fire spread pattern,’’ he noted. “The fire started within the suite.’’ It quickly spread to units above and beside it but was contained to a few suites. “The building is divided

Considerable smoke poured out from the Parkland Place apartment fire. by firewalls into five sections,’’ explained Hewetson. “The suite of origin was significantly damaged by fire and the two suites directly above had more minor fire damage as a result of exterior fire spread. “There was water damage in a further eight suites ranging in severity. Smoke damage was limited to the south section, principally

in the top two floors. “The fire was contained to the suite of origin and the only fire spread to other suites was through the exterior balconies. This means the interior suite fire separations performed as they were intended. The smoke detector within the suite was operational and the heat detectors caused the fire alarm to sound.’’

Fire fund being collected for mobile home owner

trust fund has been established for the public to make donations to Jim Angus, the Shawnigan Lake resident who lost virtually everything in a fire at his mobile home Monday. Donations to the Jim Angus Trust Fund can be made directly at any Island Savings Credit Union branch, according to neighbour Kirsten Wahl, who set up the account. Cheques can also be mailed to Island Savings, P.O. Box 100, #38-

2720 Mill Bay Rd., Mill Bay, B.C. V0R 2P0. If banking online, Wahl indicated a money transfer can be emailed to AngusFamilyFund@hotmail.com which will also go into the Jim Angus Trust Fund. If asked to create a password, Wahl suggested using “jimandjake”. “I’ve had one donation so far,’’ Wahl said Thursday. “I actually just got the account fully set up yesterday at Island Savings.’’ Besides monetary donations, household items are being sought for donation and Wahl has said she’s willing to accept them at her place in

the Shawnigan Mobile Home Park. “They can actually drop them off at our place which is directly across from his place.’’ Wahl added she’s also looking into whether the Salvation Army in Mill Bay will accept donations. Angus has been staying with neighbours before one of them stepped up in a big way. “One of the neighbours he doesn’t even know is bringing down a camper on the spot,’’ said Wahl. Enquires about donations can be directed to Wahl at 250-361-7396 or email to AngusFamilyFund@ hotmail.com.

f you are using one of those medications that comes in a patch, here’s a safe way to dispose of it after use. Fold the sticky sides together then put the patch in a safe place for return to the pharmacy. Don’t throw them in the garbage or flush them down the toilet. Drugs that can be applied as a patch include a powerful pain medication, hormones and nicotine replacement treatments. Dementia, of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form, affects 44 million people worldwide. That number will increase to 135 million by 2050. There hasn’t been any new drugs created for the past ten years to treat the disease. A Danish company has a new drug that it hopes to release in about three years. World Malaria day is commemorated every year on April 25. Half the world’s population is at risk of contracting malaria. In 2009, 790,000 people in Africa alone died from the disease. The incidence of the disease can be reduced by the use of insecticide-treated bed nets, treatment of the disease with medications and using preventative treatment of pregnant women. Smoking is a definite risk factor for still births. This applies to marijuana-smoking as well. With the legalization of marijuana sales in a couple of U.S. states, it’s important to ensure that the dangers to the fetus of smoking are emphasized. This risk also applies to second-hand smoke as well.

Norovirus infects five seniors at Cowichan Lodge

Acute stomach flu, known as norovirus, has infected five senior residents at Cowichan Lodge, Island Health officials confirmed Wednesday morning. No staff had called the workplace call centre to report they are ill with noro-like symptoms, IH’s Val Wilson emailed the News Leader Pictorial Wednesday.

“The outbreak is on the seniors’ wing only — there is no noro-like illness on the adult wing. “All family contacts of residents on the seniors’ wing have been contacted and advised of the illness, and have been asked not to visit, if possible, until the outbreak is declared over,” she says. Enhanced cleaning is in place to help prevent

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 5 the virus’ spread. Noroviruses are a group of viruses that cause acute gastroenteritis, also known as stomach flu. This is not influenza or the flu, which is a respiratory infection caused by the influenza virus, Wilson noted. Norovirus outbreaks strike B.C. communities every year.

This kid’s a CHAMP Malcolm Taylor: There’s no slowing down this energetic boy, born without a left forearm

M

alcolm Taylor is a Champ in every sense of the word. The seven-year-old is known as a CHAMP, a Child Amputee under the War Amps program, but is also a winner for not letting the fact he was born without a left forearm to slow him down. He rides a bike. He swims. He can do most everything other young kids can with the aid of prosthetics. Taylor is also a goodwill ambassador of sorts, helping to educate other children at Discovery Elementary where he’s a Grade 1 student about amputations and his own particular situation. Taylor has made presentations at his school to explain it all to other kids, and is very articulate for his age. One question, in particular, always annoys Taylor. “They say, ‘how did you break your arm?’ I did not break my arm,’’ he said. Dad Adam has attended a couple of Malcolm’s class presentations. Malcolm got through the second one especially well, all on his own. Adam and wife Jacquie are grateful for everything the War Amps’ CHAMP program provides. It is funded solely through the War Amps’ key tag and address label service, providing prosthetics and valuable information for parents of CHAMPs whenever needed. “They provide a lot of things we’re just starting to get interested in with daily living aids,’’ said Adam. “They pay for the prosthetics which is no small thing. Some things are covered through the provincial medical system — only things that are prescribed. War Amps cover anything else.’’

Don Bodger

War Amps CHAMP Malcolm Taylor, 7, uses a prosthetic to hook onto a swing in his yard. “If we have questions, we contact them,’’ said Jacquie. The Taylors recently attended the annual CHAMPs seminar at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort and Spa which is a great place for interaction with kids of all ages having a variety of amputations. To say Malcolm loved the seminar is an understatement. “Boy, do they pick good hotels and good food,’’ he raved. “I also like I get to see other CHAMPs,’’ Malcolm said. “One of the things they encourage kids to do at the seminar is to give a presentation at school and he did that,’’ said Jacquie. “You get a lot of questions.’’ Kids are naturally curious, Adam said. The first seminar the Taylors attended with Malcolm was in Vancouver when he was six

months old. “It was great to connect with everybody,’’ said Jacquie. “You get a sense of just how capable these kids are.’’ Doctors couldn’t explain why Malcolm was born without his left forearm but it did show up on his 20-week ultrasound. “They said, ‘we couldn’t find the left arm there, but no big deal,’’’ recalled Adam. But that missing limb never appeared. “It was a little nerve-racking until he was born,’’ Adam said. “Aside from his missing arm, he was fine. “At that point, you’re new parents. You have no idea what kind of impact this is going to have on your life.’’ The Taylors have since had a young daughter without complications. Malcolm hasn’t required any surgery at this

point with his growing body. “It occasionally happens if the bone grows faster than the muscle tissue,’’ explained Jacquie. But Malcolm’s already on his third basic arm since the prosthetics endure a lot of wear and tear. In the meantime, Malcolm goes on living life to the fullest, but perhaps a little wiser about the world than most kids his age. As well as he does, there are difficulties. “Sometimes it’s kind of hard to do stuff,’’ he said. “I never go on monkey bars. My arm will fall off and then I’ll fall off. “And it’s kind of hard for me to play baseball.’’ There are thoughts that come to his mind about what might have been. “At night, I wonder what it would be like to have two hands,’’ he said. “I can’t imagine it.’’

I

t is the annoying pimple of Cowichan’s cover girl face. This blight on our landscape surfaces time and again on backroads, riverbanks, trails, deserted lots and dead-end streets, with no corner of the valley safe. And Brian Duncan has had enough. Duncan, the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s manager of inspection and enforcement, is fed up with the steady stream of garbage dumped in Cowichan and has reached out to the media in a bid to put a lid on the problem.

“There are many who call the Cowichan Valley home and do their best to recycle and dispose of their garbage at a local facility. I am one of them,” he said. “And there are those who don’t care.” His plea was sparked by a recent incident at a Koksilah Road property where a gate was opened, a vehicle backed in and a load of trash dumped. “This beautiful property belongs to a local dairy farm whose cows supply milk for lots of people in the calley. We don’t know who the garbage belongs to — yet. But we’ll find out soon enough,” he said. But this case is hardly alone. He can produce picture after picture of similar incidents: a burning mattress on the banks of the Chemainus River, four neatly tied bags of leaves — free to dump at Bing’s Creek — left at the end of a road, piles of trash strewn across paths and service

roads off Highway 18 near Hillcrest, off Riverbottom and on Mayo Road. The public is urged to support officials in their bid to catch the perpetrators. It’s not always hard. Some of the dumpers are about as smart as they are lazy. “In their haste to dump garbage, sometimes information is left behind which incriminates the perpetrator. We have found identification in the past and the owners have been ticketed,” he said. Composting and recycling can be dropped free of charge, and garbage for as little as $5 at Bing’s. If you’ve witnessed illegal dumping or want to report an illegal dumpsite, call the CVRD at 250-746-2500, or after-hours Bylaw Enforcement at 250-746-2600. Fines range from $100 to $500. “This is an issue which isn’t going to end any time soon.”

Community outcry from drivers means Hill 60 getting its highway camera back 60, contacted me and shared how important the images from the Hill 60 site were for making decisions about travel during the inclement weather in the winter,” Morrison said. “I pressed the fact that Highway 18 can be a dangerous stretch of road and that when driving conditions are less than perfect, the number of accidents and vehicles that end up in the ditch increases dramatically. I insisted that based on comments I had received, nothing less than a new webcam at Hill 60 would satisfy the community’s demands.” He said 24-hour access to webcam images may eventually become possible in the winter, but it would require funding for a lighting project at the webcam site. The previous camera at Hill 60 was moved last year to a new site near Mesachie Lake. It was owned and operated by the maintenance contractor Mainroad, who felt it would be more useful to them there.

core one for the people who want to be prepared. The public outcry from those who wanted the Highway 18 traffic camera returned to Hill 60 has worked, according to Skutz Falls Director Ian Morrison. “Ministry (of Transportation) staff confirmed to me last week that new, state-of-the-art, DriveBC webcam equipment will be installed this spring/summer and will be in operation for next fall and winter’s viewing,” Morrison said in a letter to local media. “I have been promised we will have at least the same level of service provided by the old Mainroad

Whale concern tied to pipeline concern observer says from page 1

“Continued recovery of humpback whales is completely incompatible with a massive increase in oil tanker traffic on B.C.’s coast, which is what they will face if the Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipeline, and tanker proposals, proceed.” Pidcock signalled a tanker wreck in whale territory would be tragically inevitable. “It’s a given; boats run aground,” he said, citing rocks, islands, extreme weather, and narrow channels faced by tanker crews. Whales are seen as vulnerable to vessel strikes and underwater noise, plus entanglement in fishing gear. “We need to take into account all aspects, and look at tourism and these animals,” said Pidcock. “It’s (risk) huge; it’s the whole ecosystem, and would affect all keystone species all the way up the food chain.” — with a file from Jeff Nagel

Timing of whale decision seems very convenient

No longer threatened: humpbacks, or pipelines?

I

s there anyone out there who isn’t at least slightly skeptical of the removal of the humpback whale from Canada’s threatened wildlife list? Sure, the stats indicate this awe-inspiring creature’s numbers have rebounded nicely in the past half-century, after the whaling exploits of previous generations cut hard into the coastal B.C. population. And yes, the total of humpbacks drifting through north Pacific waters is up to 18,000 (2,200 off B.C.) now, up by more than 50% from the totals that existed around the time of the Second World War. But is there anyone out there who Is this really actually believes this move has absoin the whales’ lutely nothing to do with the ongoing bid to ship bitumen from the Alberta best interest? tarsands along the B.C. coastline. The arguments surrounding the Northern Gateway pipeline project are well-made elsewhere, including one from this newspaper’s owner that runs directly underneath this space. For the moment, we will leave that debate to others. We would like to focus simply on the whales. The legislation protecting them specifically pointed to ships as posing a risk — both in the case of spills, but also through routine traffic. The threatened species designation was cited in a lawsuit attempting to block the pipeline. And the decision to lift the designation specifically mentioned “small benefits to industry.” The recovery of the humpback is a success story, one we would like to see continued through increased population growth.If the slow and steady growth of the past 65 years has been aided and abetted by the threatened species designation, why would you stop now? Just because you think you know the answer doesn’t make it easier to swallow.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: North Cowichan tax hike The case against

The case for

North Cowichan is a changing municipality, weaning itself from an over-reliance on heavy industry and populated by people who care about their services and their environment. The fact that taxes have risen considerably in the past few years is indicative of public demand. Now with most of those adjustments over, the tax hike is back in the range of 2 to 3%, exactly where it should be.

North Cowichan recently approved a tax hike of 2.64%.

Refinery benefits B.C. economy and environment David Black

News Leader Pictorial

T

his is the second of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime. The Alberta oil industry’s Northern Gateway plan is to export bitumen to Asia via tankers from the B.C. coast. Under no circumstances should we allow that. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hundreds of years. The solution that is best for Canada is to build a refinery in Kitimat. It will convert the bitumen to very light fuels that would float and evaporate if ever spilled. There are other enormous benefits: There will be a major reduction in greenhouse gases. We will use new cutting-edge Canadian technology in our refinery. It will be so clean that, in combination with

oilsands extraction, there will be less CO2 than in the huge conventional oilfields and refineries of Iraq and Nigeria. The Kitimat refinery will neutralize the extra greenhouse gases generated in Canada’s oilsands. This refinery will be built in Asia if not in Kitimat, and if so it will emit double the CO2 of our new design. This is the reason Andrew Weaver of the B.C. Green Party is in favour of a Canadian refinery. An Asian refinery will also generate 100 train cars a day of very dirty coke which will be burnt in the atmosphere. The Kitimat refinery will not result in the production of any coke. It is far better for the global environment to build this refinery in Canada. Construction of the refinery will create 6,000 jobs in B.C. for five years. Operations will result in more permanent jobs than any project has ever created in B.C. — approximately 3,000 direct jobs. These will be highly paid permanent jobs, available for the life of the refinery, which should be in excess of 50

North Cowichan has been using the reality of the industrial tax shift to mask its unwillingness to set aside any of its pet projects or swelling numbers of employees. The fact is, when your septic system is failing, you cancel your Hawaiian vacation and spend your money on a new septic system. This year’s hike may be easier to take, but cuts are actually what is in order.

BC VIEWS

years. There will be thousands more jobs created in spinoff local petrochemical companies and in indirect employment throughout the province. The Canadian and provincial governments, local regional districts and municipalities, and many First Nations, will share in billions of new tax dollars each year. Unfortunately our Canadian oil companies are not interested in building a new major refinery. They are focused on extraction which is more profitable than refining. One of them challenged me to spearhead the refinery myself, so I am doing that. We have a solid business plan. As a consequence Chinese banks and other institutions are prepared to lend us most of the funds required to build the greenest and most efficient refinery in the world. We are moving ahead with engineering and environmental design. We will also build a safe pipeline from Alberta to the refinery, with the active participation of First Nations. Modern pipelines

can be built and operated safely. Leak data available on Canadian and U.S. government websites proves recently constructed pipelines are not leaking. Some of the best pipelining companies in the world are Canadian. We will build a fleet of new tankers, powered by LNG to transport the refined products to Asia. This way we know the tankers will be state-of-the-art and as safe as possible. The fleet will be owned by a B.C. company. so it cannot shirk its legal liability if there ever is a spill at sea. If you agree we should not put bitumen in tankers, please contact your MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on Northern Gateway next month. David Black is the majority owner of Black Press, the company that owns this newspaper.

Heavy-handed enforcement needs to change

Dear editor Re; Duncan’s three-hour parking limit and the city’s parking enforcement. I’m a contractor who is always buying material at Griffith’s Plumbing. I’m in there two or three times a day on some occasions. Also I have a “bad” habit of eating in local restaurants that are in the downtown area. Never, I repeat, never am I parked more than an hour. I have work to do. I just got a “reminder ticket” that I park “too often” in the downtown. The signs say maximum three hours. They don’t say you can only park once a day. The people who abuse the three-hour parking are those who actually work in businesses downtown. Everybody knows it and everyone complains about it. If the city wants to harass people, then go after the right people. Better yet, get rid of three-hour parking and open the parking to shoppers who want to spend money. I for one don’t mind paying a “ticket” when I actually deserve it. Victor Smith Duncan

Sick children should be able to enjoy the playhouse after the home opens in April. factors involved in such a project? Do you have any real experience of this type of rail service? It would be, at best, a regular commuter train. As such, how much better would it be after you have spent all that money than what we had two years ago? I beg you to run this proposal past some people who understand the complexities of rail transport and also some people who understand finance. If you could get someone such as Warren Buffet or more locally David Black to invest substantial sums in this project then I believe the project may be worthwhile. But until then, I strongly advise against any level of government from local to national, putting any more money into what will be at best a drain on the finances, and at worst a complete waste of money. At the end, what will we have achieved, we will have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to provide a service no better than the Greyhound bus service that is already in existence and

her decision to home birth. As a mother of two home-birthed girls, who had her first home birth almost six years ago — far before it was as widely accepted and recognized as it has become — it is great this option for expectant mothers is getting some time in the limelight. For far too long, too many people have remained uneducated and unaware of the ability and freedom women have in this province to choose where they birth their children and under what kind of care. There is also so much misinformation about the supposed risks and not enough information about all the benefits. We are not only lucky to live in a province that supports women’s choices, but even more so to have access to the exceptional, high quality of care available, at no extra cost to the mother, at the Cowichan Midwifery Group here in Duncan. Yes, this is a shameless plug for the incredible women who attended both of my home deliveries and the holistic and whole-person approach they take to caring for not only the physical health of the baby and mother, but the whole woman; emotions and fears and anxieties, body, soul and spirit. Thanks Ashley, for using your voice to get educated and make the best decision, whether that was home or hospital, for you and your husband to have the best birthing experience you can.

early all Cowichan Valley school district employees are represented by of one of three unions: The British Columbia Teachers’ Union; Canadian Union of Public Employees; and the United Steelworkers, whose members formerly belonged to the International Woodworkers of America. In April 1976, IWA Local 1-80 was at loggerheads with the local school board about a wage increase, and its 90 janitors, bus drivers and ground maintenance workers were off the job resulting in the closure of 28 Cowichan district schools. CUPE clerical and secretarial staff honoured the picket lines, which came down between 9 and 10 a.m. every school morning for students to collect homework and return assignments. Teachers, who had not yet unionized, remained on the job. The Cowichan District Teachers’ Association supported the union’s right to strike, and at the same time the union recognized the teachers’ obligations to fulfill their contracts with the Cowichan school board, said CDTA president Phil Van Seters. The board had offered a rate of $6.16 an hour, while the union was asking $6.60. Any wage increase was subject to a ruling by the province’s anti-inflation board.

uncan and North Cowichan’s decision to ask the public about opening a dialogue on amalgamation isn’t the only concrete evidence to surface recently about their budding friendship. It was preceded by warm handshakes on a new protocol deal. The deal — dubbed the Inter-Municipal Relationship Protocol — was officially signed April 14. According to joint media release, the InterMunicipal Relationship Protocol establishes clear guidelines for effectively working together on interconnected matters and represents a unique opportunity to encourage information sharing and to work cooperatively on a variety of issues of common interest. The protocol addresses three areas: promotion of inter- municipal and community relationships, development of communication protocols and problem-solving and conflict resolution. Each clearly defines expectations and accountability for each council and staff. — John McKinley

Youbou urges TimberWest to scrub its proposed car wash location Reaction: Residents say site too close to town and lake

Malcolm Chalmers

News Leader Pictorial

A

rea residents have said “no” to the placement of a long-awaited truck wash at the west entrance to Youbou. About 20 people attended an April 8 evening meeting at the Youbou Hall to hear the update from TimberWest. By the end, they were not ready to accept the proposed location. The truck wash has long been discussed as a solution to the community’s longstanding issues with logging truck dust and mud. Tim-

berWest communications manager Sue Handel, and Frank Limshue, director of planning and zoning for the firm’s real estate arm, made a short presentation to explain the process they went through to find its best location. Limshue said the truck wash could be running in four weeks if everyone agrees to “Site A,” a small sliver of property situated next to the paved road, 47 metres from Cowichan Lake and 150 metres from the nearest Youbou residence. John and Trish Waddington, the owners of the residence nearest to the site, said it is not acceptable. They had many concerns about Site A, ranging from proximity to the lake and property values to nearby houses and harm to the local frog population. “We only get one chance at this,

we want it to be done right,” Trish Waddington said. Dennis Martel, meanwhile, voiced his concern about the wetness of Site A and wanted to know how dirty water from that location would be kept from leaking into the lake. Other audience members questioned why a proposed site two kilometres down TimberWest’s logging road was not chosen over the site in town. The response: TimberWest didn’t want the newly washed trucks to exit on to a gravel road and possibly pick up more dirt before entering Youbou. TimberWest still feels this Site A is a better location than their other option, “Site B.” Site B is located across the road on parkland behind the Youbou Firehall.

Malcolm Chalmers

Frank Limshue (left) and Pat Weaver (second from right) discuss the proposed location of the TimberWest truck wash with concerned residents. That location is also not favoured by the residents. Discussions continued for almost an hour, holding up the CVRD Parks and Recreation meeting that

followed. It is not clear what the next move will be. “There’s been no decision,” said Youbou Director Pat Weaver. “I’m waiting to hear back from them.”

That bang sounds Saturday with the latest edition of the Met Live in HD series. “We’re very happy to announce that the first HD broadcast on our new, brighter, sharper projection screen will be this amazing production of Mozart’s beloved comic opera Così Fan Tutte,” theatre publicist Brian Kroeker said. “Young love, fidelity, sexual attraction and the exploration of forbidden desires is showcased by Mozart’s sublime music and an inspired cast,” show promotional material states. “The Mozart comedy is about a scheming manipulator who goads two young soldiers into testing the fidelity of their fiancées. The soldiers bet their sweethearts will be true and set out to falsely woo them while in disguise. “I don’t think I have ever heard a more vibrant, masterly and natural performance than this Così Fan Tutte,” wrote a New York Times reviewer. The show starts at 9:55 a.m. April 26. Tickets are $26, with discounts for students, seniors and children. Call 250-7487529.

The Great Plains rumble through the valley

ON STAGE

The Great Plains come to Duncan this weekend. No strangers to the valley, the duo also known as Saskia and Darrel bring their musical slice of Canadiana Sunday for a show in the Duncan United Church. Islands Folk Festival veterans, they’ve toured extensively with Gary Fjellgaard for the past 10

years,in addition to their own shows, “Great Plains are a veteran touring act; with an easy, crowd-friendly style that instantly endears them to any audience,” their PR material states. “This is true Canadiana; real songs drenched in our culture and heritage delivered in a comfortable highly skilled set with oodles of self-poking humour. “They delight their audience with tales about

Prairie Elevator, War brides, Patchwork Quilts, Louis Riel and David Thompson and then surprisingly will break into Swiss yodeling, some fabulous blues, or sing in Gaelic, Spanish, Dutch, German or French.” Great Plains performs April 27 starting at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance at the church or by calling 250-746-6043, or $12 at the door.

Murder mystery thriller tackles domestic violence Shawnigan Players: stage the whodunit Murder in Green Meadows Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

M

urder In Green Meadows promises to plow deep emotional fields concerning spousal abuse during Shawnigan Players’ psychological thriller opening this week. “It’s about infidelity, domestic violence, physical and mental abuse, and punishment in the shape of a plan so neatly constructed no one could possibly see through it — unless they were part of it,” director/ producer Maggie Sullivan said of Douglas Post’s 1991 play. But the Players have never been shy about exploring heavier topics. “It’s a murder mystery, so there are lots of twists, and people will have fun trying to figure out the end,” said actor Jessie Mann, depicting Joan Devereaux, who’s abused by husband, Thomas (Erin Butler). “Thomas wants to be in control; it’s always about him,” explained Sullivan. “He likes to brag a lot; he’s very self-centered.”

The four-member drama, set in present-day Illinois, also involves Carolyn and Jeff Symons (portrayed by Deanna Attwood and Nick Brown). Meadows has proven fertile ground in coaxing Mann beyond some lighter roles. “The past couple of plays I’ve done have been farces, so it’s a different style of acting. As soon as I read it, I wanted to be in it. “I’ve known of family members who’ve gone through certain things. I hope everybody comes away from this play as if they’ve been touched by abuse, and can probably relate,” Mann said, adding she wants to create understanding about the hold the abuser has on a person. “It can be tough seeing a loved one go through that.” Meadows’ plot was familiar to Jane Sterk, executive director of Cowichan Women Against Violence. “Some situations can be controlling — and pretty subtle, as this play suggests. There can be verbal and physical ways people use to control,” she said. “If you let it go by early in the relationship, it can escalate to something equivalent to spousal abuse.” Sterk cited a recent case in which a woman in Clearwater was murdered within a month of leaving her abusive common-law husband. Early

Deanna Attwood is Carolyn Symons and Erin Butler is Thomas Devereaux in the Shawnigan Players Murder in Green Meadows. detection and action about abuse is key, she indicated. “If there’s surprise or shock when you first get into a relationship, you need to find a means to deal with that. “We’re working with women to develop a safety plan if they’re making changes in their relationship that could potentially (violently)

escalate.” Expanding awareness in that area is a good thing, Mann agrees, although she declined to give Meadows a moral. “I just hope the audience has a great time, and I’m sure they’ll be on the edge of their seats,” Mann said. “I’d rather not give people a heads up.”

She was wearing leathers, You only have one head. Use it. And protect it. gloves, protective boots, and a helmet. Granted, not everyone is as lucky, but Jackets: you get my point.

Kevlar jeans are getting better and better as more research and development is conducted. I say, if you’re going for the “cool” look, spend a little more for the added protection. Boots: Not everyone will want heavily reinforced boots. That’s fine. But if you’re going to ride, get leather footwear that at least covers your anklebone. Speaking of which, have you ever hit your anklebone on a table leg? Hurts, doesn’t it. Now imagine a 220-kilo machine falling on it. Think safety. What’s great about the industry now, is the availability to cool riding shoes that have reinforced heels and ankle protection. You can look good and be protected. Bonus.

riders will also add a chest protector/ breastplate, gloves, boots and goggles. Along with their helmet, of course. Accessories: If you want added piece of mind, that’s available, too. I ride with a back protector with built-in kidney protectors that I put on under my jacket. I look like a Ninja Turtle, but I don’t care! They work. A full chest protector is also available along with I’ve only scratched the surface for gear out there, but these are the basics to getting started.

Weights and vitamins keep that machine’s operation smooth, And a few extra ointments help those aches to soothe, You’ve got to take this old age thing with a grain of salt,

So Happy 91st Birthday to you Albin Falt. Love from all the family xxxooo

Spring Challenge: Doubles teams put on quite a show in quest for the best Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

A

total of 28 teams entered the two-day Spring Challenge Doubles Tournament at Brentwood College as high school tennis made its return to the outdoor courts. Players from Brentwood, Shawnigan Lake School, Frances Kelsey, Cowichan Secondary and Victoria took part in the triple knockout tournament. Brentwood’s Nick McLean and Christopher Chan defeated Jonathan Waslen and Stephen Wyatt from Shawnigan Lake to capture top spot in the boys’ division. “The boys’ final was a match between two of the top high school doubles teams in the province and came down to a third-set tiebreaker to decide the winner,’’ noted Brentwood coach Marci McLean. “These boys are terrific tennis players and there were many excellent shots made throughout the match.’’ On the girls’ side, Natalia Saavedra of Duncan and Victoria’s Sybella Garvin combined to outrally Ingrid Chui and Nancy Mao of Brentwood for top honours. Both A division finals featured a high level of shotmaking and skill, according to McLean. The boys’ B final was captured by Matayea Radisavljevic and Daniel Diemer of Victoria following a victory over Shawnigan’s Jack Xie and Yuji Akimoto in another terrific match decided by a third-set tiebreaker. Sarina Soetarjo and Cassie Hauser of Shawnigan defeated Natalie Lawrence-Ramirez and Alexa Aguilar-Castellano of Brentwood in the girls’ B final. The boys’ C final was won by Brandon Chung and Jordan Frances of Shawnigan over Wasay Chaudhry and Alejandro Godin-Gonzalez of Brentwood. An all-Shawnigan girls’ C final ended with the team

Taking a bite out of the competition en route to a gold medal performance in doubles are Brentwood College’s Nick McLean and Christopher Chan. of Lena Brown and Declen Goparma defeating Carly Grabher and Karen Wong. A good time was had by all, with lots of action on the courts and a non-stop barbecue for two days.

magine an organization which has donated funds for more than 65 consecutive years to support cancer patient care, research and equipment. Now imagine the commitment of thousands of members hosting socials and teas, bazaars, raffles and other fund-raisers, as well as giving freely of their time to meet their charitable goals. According to Ruth Foster, Director of Cancer Activities for the O.E.S., “There are four categories of annual giving: educational bursaries, equipment, supplies and Cancer Dressings.” Last year, $8,362.29 was collected from the sale of cancelled stamps and postcards throughout British Columbia and Yukon to be distributed for Cancer Research or Cancer Dressings, wherever it is needed. (We must thank our friends in the community for keeping us well supplied with stamps.) Sunset Chapter #44, Duncan has one of our 39 Cancer Dressing Stations, located downstairs in the Mercury Theatre on Brae Road, Duncan. Last year, throughout our jurisdiction, 170 dedicated members volunteered 8120 hours producing 69,708 cancer dressings at a cost of $9,599.91. (We’ve used up inventory on hand, which once again reduced expenses. There is a need for dressings in Northern BC, so these numbers will likely increase next year.)

p m a t S Out r e c n a C

Presently, sterilization is only being done by certain Hospitals and Clinics by trained and qualified staff in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna and d Prince George. The present method of distribution on is - the hospital staff will give the patient a supplyy of cancer dressings to take home. Local cancer patients requiring dressings are asked to contact the Canadian Cancer Society Office at 250-746-4134. Cancer is a dreadful disease without the added burden of the expense of dressings often required. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHARGE TO THE PATIENT. All that is required is a doctor’s referral. By supporting our Stamp Project, attending bazaars and teas, the Cabaret Night or buying tickets on our annual Cancer Draw, you enable us to continue our efforts in the fight against cancer. We’ve had a Polar Swim each February since 2005, first at Transfer Beach in Ladysmith and starting this year, at Departure Bay in Nanaimo. Thanks to pledges/donations, the members willing to brave the chilly water, have raised over $50,000.00 for Cancer Projects. Please drop off your used stamps at the Cowichan News Leader/Pictorial Office between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Mon. to Fri., #2-5380 Trans Canada Hwy., the United Steelworkers Office, 351 Brae Road, or the local Cancer Office, #100-394 Duncan Street. NB: Our Stamps Dealers dictate how the stamps are to be trimmed, so we are asking our friends in the community NOT to TRIM stamps off envelopes. Just leave the stamps intact and we’ll do the rest. We don’t want any stamps to be spoiled. Thanks.

badminton and soccer doubleheader brought considerable success and excitement at Queen Margaret’s School. The QMS Royals badminton squad hosted Brentwood College School in a friendly season-opener and took all nine matches involving singles and doubles teams. “Our returning players showed strength and experience on the court,’’ noted QMS head coach Carol Ingledew. Students new to the Royals’ senior team also played well, including rookie Urara Niwata, who earned her first singles victory during a hard-fought three-game match. The QMS Royals senior girls’ soccer team posted a convincing win over Lake Cowichan in its first home game of the season. Coached by Stacy Paton and Dominic Smith, the Royals put their offensive strength into play.

hawnigan Lake School’s girls’ rugby team is making life difficult for its opponents this season. Another case in point came Thursday, as Shawnigan hosted Cowichan Secondary and posted a 12-0 shutout. Cowichan coach Brad Skene acknowledged there are some gifted players who’ve joined the Shawnigan team this season and they’re clearly making a difference. The most significant among them is Hannah Darling, who is involved with the national women’s sevens team and she “was a massive influence in the game,’’ noted Skene. Cowichan’s record of close, hard-fought games against Shawnigan continued. “It was great to play a difficult game with a number of athletes who challenged us and it was great preparation for the playoffs,’’ noted Skene. “We had a lot of possession and territory but couldn’t turn this into points.’’

he much-improved Roofco Sirens still have some work to do to catch the elite team of the Cowichan Women’s Football League. The Sirens have been racking up the victories in the early going of the season, but ran into the Crew Sunday at McAdam Park and lost 40-7. Christine Switzer put the lone touchdown on the board for the Sirens, with a convert from Tara Brooks. The Sirens temporarily halted the Crew’s offense with an interception from Tara McCaffery and two quarterback sacks from Sabrina Desrochers. The Crew spread its scoring throughout the lineup, with two TDs from Alita Mattin and Jessica Lines-Wikkerink plus singles by Janelle Mould and Jade Scott.

Ball appears to be slipping through the grasp of the Crew’s Janelle Mould, but she manages to hang on for the reception against tough defence from the Sirens’ Tara McCaffery. Willy Toews, Marilou Sullivan, Jennie Hittinger and Mould also put converts on the board. The Crew also played tenacious defence with interceptions from Mould, Mattin, Scott and Toews. The barnburner of the week was a 28-27 win for Moo’s Law over the Ravens. The Law’s scoring came courtesy of two TDs by Kim Scafe, one TD from Rachel Hastings, a TD and three points on converts for Leanne Closson and a one-point convert by Jackie Poznecov. Crystal Gotto and Closson were tough on the ball with two interceptions each. The Ravens’ Rikki Wylie scored three TDs, including one of her two interceptions that went 45 yards to the end zone. Dana Thorne contributed a TD and one-

point convert and Lauren James rounded out the scoring with a pair of one-point converts. The Wild came out strong in its game against Blue Steel, but couldn’t sustain it and lost 19-1. Sue Glenn kicked for a point that gave the Wild a 1-0 lead at the half. Blue Steel switched things up on both sides of the ball in the second half and found its groove. Quarterback Holly Graham found Heidi Padjen for two TDs and Padjen’s twin sister Mila Main snagged a tipped ball for another TD. Kara Espeseth added a convert. Main, Padjen and Sam Miller had interceptions for Blue Steel. Rhiannon Kemmler and Keri McKelvie recorded interceptions for the Wild and Ginette Bilina recorded four sacks.

owichan’s Pre-atom Bulldogs were without seven regulars for a football game against the Westshore Warriors last weekend. Jeevan Nijjar reeled in a couple of nice passes from Jaxson Jones while Ethan Bell and Thoran Koyote ran for TDs but the Bulldogs fell a few short of the bigger Westshore team. Evan Mayer made some great open-field tackles on defence. Parker Lawrence shut down the middle of the field and Nico Harris recovered a fumble and made some hard-hitting tackles. “The boys are loving the game and I have some very motivated players,’’ noted coach Ted Harris. The team let a 7-6 halftime lead slip away the previous week in a loss to the Gordon Head Raiders. Jones ran for a TD and converted it that had the Bulldogs on top. Running back Treyton McCuaig-Jones made several fine rushes.

owichan Chaos U14 girls are the sole survivors from the Cowichan Valley Soccer Association in intense Coastal Cup playoff games. Coach Brian Johnston’s squad prevailed over the North Shore Vipers 1-0 in a barnburner in one of two games played at Sherman Road Park. “It was a very tight game,’’ said Johnston. Emma Dewit scored the lone goal from 25 yards out with about five minutes left in the first half. With the lead, Cowichan stayed the course in the second half and the tone of the game stayed very tight. “I thought we were probably a little bit more dangerous attacking inside,’’ said Johnston. “They moved the ball around a little better than we did.’’ The back four for Cowichan of Danielle Wince, Kristen Banasch, Kylie Kidd and Hannah Tuplin did a great job of defensive work against the Vipers. Cowichan had good pace out wide with Dewit, Ricki-Ann Keen, Kayleigh Ferguson and MacKenzie Johnston. “Those four rotated around from the outside,’’ said Brian Johnston. “That’s where our attack came from.’’ Cowichan takes on Marpole Phoenix from the Lower Mainland in the Coastal Cup final in Richmond Sunday. The other game at Sherman Road pitted coach David Doughty’s U16 Gold

Cowichan Valley Spartans against the powerful Ladner Celtic. The visitors poured it on for a 7-0 win. “They’re an old Metro team and now they’ve moved into what’s called the A League,’’ said Doughty. Cowichan was under the gun from the start without regular goalkeeper Nathaniel White, who’s still recovering from a concussion. “I think the game would have been close,’’ said Doughty had White been available. “I think we would have still lost. That team was very good.’’ Doughty said now his team knows what it will be up against in the provincials in July. He’ll be conducting two practices a week until then. Al Longair’s U15 Gold Cowichan Grizzlies boys hit the road and were beaten 3-0 by South Burnaby Metro Ford in Burnaby. “I think the boys were kind of overwhelmed by the facility over there,’’ said Longair. “They were a better team, but our guys held their own. They had to win to qualify for the provincials. We already had a place there.’’ Goalkeeper Noah Wickham had an outstanding game for Cowichan. He didn’t have a chance on any of the goals that beat him. Cowichan trailed 2-0 at the half and the final goal came in the late stages. “It was a good learning experience for them when they go over in July (to provincials),’’ said Longair. “It won’t be such a shock to their system.’’

Fall ball: Coels going to Durham College, Groenendijk to Thompson Rivers

ecisions, decisions. Student athletes preparing to graduate soon face some tough ones about where they’re going to attend school and continue their sports pursuits in the fall. Two prominent athletes recently came up with game plans. Softball player and Queen Margaret’s School student Caleigh Coels is going to Durham College in Oshawa, Ont. and Duncan Christian School’s Douglas Groenendijk has elected to become a student and volleyball player at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops. Coels’ move was rather prophetic, as she goes from being a Royal to a Lord. “I was always interested in going to school for ball and stuff,’’ said Coels, a longtime member of the Victoria Devils’ organization. “I wanted to go to the States more.’’ She didn’t know of many opportunities in Canada but her university prep teacher did some digging and uncovered Durham. Another ball player from Duncan, Jolene Bull, was a student there last year. “I’ve known her through ball for a while,’’ said Coels. It all came together quickly for Coels. She visited Durham in March and officially signed at the end of the month. “It’s a really nice school,’’ said Coels. “I was really impressed.’’ The softball situation seemed to suit her as well. “They’re looking to improve so they’re playing a full season of softball.’’

The new season is just getting going for Coels with the ‘96 Devils. “We’re hosting provincials this year,’’ she said. “We’re aiming for nationals. I hope we go. It’s my last year.’’ Groenendijk picked Thompson Rivers over a couple of other schools he was considering. “It’s a pretty high calibre volleyball up there,’’ he said. “There’s a bunch of guys I know going there next year.’’ Groenendijk visited Thompson Rivers in January and had a familiarity for the place after playing there with Team B.C. last summer. Brother Cameron attends Redeemer Christian University in Ontario and Douglas had given some thought to going there before deciding to stay in B.C. “I wanted to play CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) and I decided I wanted to stay in the West,’’ he said. “It’s really nice knowing where I’m going next year.’’ Pat Hennelly, coach of the WolfPack, is pleased to be getting Groenendijk. “He has good vertical and a long reach,’’ noted Hennelly. “When I look at the Team B.C. roster and look for guys (touching) over 11 feet, I noticed Doug touched 11’5’’ this past summer.’’ Groenendijk is also six-foot-four but plays even larger than his height. “I don’t even have a position for the team yet,’’ he said. “He (Hennelly) just wanted me and I said ‘yeah.’’’ Groenendijk is playing club volleyball for the Victoria Volleyball Association and hopes to be on Team B.C. again this summer.

talented young Frances Kelsey senior boys’ rugby team is starting to understand what it takes to be successful against tough competition. No less than seven juniors started in a league game against Nanaimo District Secondary last Thursday and Kelsey posted a 22-0 win. “I believe that they can only get better as they mature both physically and mentally,’’ noted Tom Fogarty, assistant to head coach Craig Schmidt. The first half of the NDSS game was a forwards battle, as rain poured down on the players. No. 8 Karl Mattison went over for two powerful tries before having to come off due to injury. The weather cleared as the second half got underway and the backs began to show what they could do with the ball in their hands. Outside centre Saxon Ashbee and fullback Landon Conville put the game out of reach by scoring breakaway tries. Dallas (Moose) McLaughlin, playing tight head, was man of the match for Kelsey. According to Fogarty, McLaughlin “made an insane amount of tackles on the day and was instrumental in destroying the NDSS front row at scrum time.’’ Previously in Scrumfest at Claremont, Kelsey managed wins against Stelly’s and Grand Forks, and had a close loss to G.W. Graham. A couple of players suffered broken noses during the games, but the boys held their against some big runners from all three teams.
