School wants field damage to stop Devon MacKenzie News staff
School administrators are appealing to the public for information after damage was done to the playing fields at LÁU,WEL,NEW School over the Easter long weekend. Over the last few years, the field at the back of the school off West Saanich Road has been the target of vandalism. “People have come in and driven around on the playing field once a year or so for the past three years,” explained LÁU,WEL,NEW School Board Administrator Curtis Olsen. “We’ve made reports to the police but since it’s such a secluded area back there we rarely get any information or leads on who does this. It’s really unfortunate.” The most recent damage was done over the Easter long weekend on either the Friday or Saturday night. Olsen said he suspects someone driving a lifted 4x4 vehicle drove up a steep embankment in order to gain access to the field which has only one vehicle access point that is kept closed with chain link fencing.

Donna Jean, show convenor for the Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Society’s Arts and Crafts Exhibition and Sale says they had more than 1,500 people through the doors at the Mary Winspear Centre on the weekend.
A showcase of Island artists Steven Heywood News staff
By the time the weekend was over, more than 1,500 people were expected to have walked into the Mary Winspear Centre for a huge arts and crafts show. The 61st annual Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Society event is a showcase of work from artists from south of the Malahat, to the Saanich Peninsula and from the Gulf Islands. Show Convenor Donna Jean, who has been with
the event for six years (and a member artist for seven), says the Arts and Crafts Exhibition gives the community access to local artists’ work. The weekend exhibit had no less than 360 hanging works of art, plus tables containing even more. Member artists gave demonstrations and guest sculptor Andreas von Zadora-Gerlof presented his gem creations on the main stage. “This is a venue for members to sell their art,” Jean said, adding judges from the Society volunteer to award
top marks to pieces in a variety of categories. There are around 290 members in SPAC (www.spacsociety.com), Jean said, and they pay a $20 hanging fee to get into the show — making it affordable to members. They had to be fully paid members as of Dec. 31 to qualify for the big exhibition. “The Mary Winspear Centre,” Jean continued, “is a nice place that reaches a lot of people. We’ll have had more than 1,500 people through.” firstname.lastname@example.org

SOS group to act as task force watchdogs As Mayor’s task force on downtown Sidney starts, the SOS keeps rolling Steven Heywood News staff
Organizers of the new Save Our Sidney working group on the future of downtown commercial fortunes, says they hope to act as watchdogs of the Mayor’s Task Force on Downtown Revitalization. More than 50 people expressed an interest to be part of SOS following a public presentation by Sidney business owner Garry Froese and international retail consultant Richard Talbot earlier this month. The presentation, Talbot’s third, outlined the threats to downtown Sidney’s commercial viability in the face of proposed large retail developments in Central and North Saanich — and step to take to retain and attract customers. Steve Duck of the TIDES Group, facilitator of the April 9 presentation, says residents and business
owners alike hope to see results from task force meetings. The task force, created by Mayor Larry Cross, met for the first time April 24 to outline its direction. “I anticipate this to be a community-based watchdog,” Duck said, “to make sure something comes out of the task force, especially with a united front.” Duck has been working closely with the Sidney Tourism Improvement Group (STIG) which has lobbied the Town for changes to the traffic flow on Beacon Avenue and local tourist signage. With traffic off the table for the task force, Duck said he hopes it looks at the bigger picture of downtown Sidney and doesn’t disregard any ideas that come forward. “Jesken and Sandown will come,” Duck said of the two commercial projects in the works. “They will bring peo-
Richard Talbot says the SOS will review the direction of the task force. ple to this area. Along with what the Sidney Business Improvement Group is doing, there will be three groups marketing the Peninsula, hoping to attract people to come here.” Duck said he hopes the task force, which does not include any representatives from STIG or SOS, brings people together — including local experts — on this common ground. “The task force needs the opportunity to do a good job. They
also need to engage the public right from the start, not at the end.” In the end, any suggestions the task force amass will require the political will to make them happen. “We shouldn’t fear Sandown or Jesken. We should fear ourselves. We are responsible for our own successes or failures.” Duck said the SOS working group will host another presentation on May 7. Talbot, who remains involved with SOS, said the plan is to hold monthly meetings
to review the “output and direction of the Dickinson Task Force” — in reference to its chair, Mark Dickinson. In an email to the PNR, Talbot said the guest speaker at its May 7 meeting will be Jan Egil Gulbrandsen. He is a Norwegian entrepreneur, co-founder of the Europris chain of general merchandise stores. He is set to talk about lessons learned from operating small stores and strategies to revitalizing downtown Sidney. The presentation will

The Victoria Harbour Boat Show returns, filling the waters of the Inner Harbour for the 24th time, with more than 100 boats of all shapes and sizes coming for what show manager Steven Threadkell said is the biggest boat show on the West Coast. Boats from across the Island and as far away as Seattle and Oregon will be on display and open to the public, alongside 30 exhibitor areas, food carts, free draws, guided tours and a kids' zone. Included in the May 1 to 4 show are a plethora of other water-based activities and demonstrations. "It's fun, healthy, outdoors and you see a perspective of B.C. many people who don't boat can't get," Threadkell said. For more ticket information and more, visit bcyba.com.

ll right folks, here’s a chance to share some of your favourite places and things in the Saanich Peninsula with the thousands of readers of the Peninsula News Review. In May, the PNR will publish our list of the Seven Wonders of the Saanich Peninsula — and we think we’ve got a pretty good sampling of natural and man-made wonders. These are places that we love seeing and enjoy visiting in Central and North Saanich and Sidney. Some of these places and things are something that many of us just couldn’t live without, as they bring constant joy and maybe even a little bit They bring of pride in our community. constant joy and Already, Butchart maybe even a little Gardens has been receiving a few bit of pride votes from readers. The fabulous attraction — one of the Island’s best — will probably feature prominently among the Wonders. We want to know what you think are the Peninsula’s most interesting attractions — not just for the hordes of tourists, but for the folks who live here year-round. Hidden gems, public spaces, favourite haunts. There are probably more than seven such items on the Saanich Peninsula, but we’re going to start with that lucky number and round out what makes this place so great with ideas from our readers. Email us at email@example.com or visit our Facebook page — www.facebook. com/peninsulanewsreview — before May 11 and make your suggestions for our Seven Wonders special section next month. We plan to include your comments and suggestions alongside our own list of the Saanich Peninsula’s Seven Wonders. We want as many as possible to let people know just what we have to offer. And you never know — we might come up with places and objects you never knew were out there. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 250-656-5526.

The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force big-box development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer. The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments, but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income less than $10,000 a year.

LETTERS Chainsaw approach to development in North Saanich Letters to the Editor A s a resident of North Saanich I am troubled about the rhetoric surrounding proposed urbanization/densification initiatives and the process of adopting them. In terms of how densification is being discussed there is, in my opinion, a chorus who paint it as addressing admirable objectives including: affordable housing, work force housing, the environment, grandparents, their children and single parents. A rezoning may or may not support these objectives but my issue is that those who do not rally behind it are painted as people who support dying communities, want to
shut the door on others from living here and don’t support families or the environment. What I find most disconcerting is the generalized negative labeling of those who query, question or wish to pause or see clarification on a development initiative. It reminds me of George Bush’s approach where an individual is defined as being either with you or if they are not, they are against you. I believe the majority who speak out against and in support actually share similar values. But in the current poisoned environment there can’t be and hasn’t been a true and meaningful dialogue on

how best to achieve shared values. Embarking upon a path that
invites discussions is truly a sure sign of a healthy community and one which I believe all North Saanich residents seek and should be embraced by their elected councilors. If these proposals are implemented, areas demarked in the broad-brush boundaries will be open for densification and rezoning. Neighbors may decide to join their lots for rezoning and their immediate neighbours may wish to retain the rural character they valued. The potential for conflict within these areas is real. This schism and divide in the
community has occurred because the process is flawed. Asking for consultation, discussion, understanding and planning is not a sign of opposition to a healthy and thriving community. In fact it is the reverse. The process of looking at how we can best support affordable workforce housing, which supports families, single parents and low wage earners has been achieved by using a chainsaw approach rather than what could be accomplished more strategically with a pair of thoughtful scissors.

Readers respond: Kitimat refinery, significant scraps in North Saanich, scooter safety Black cares about the coast I can’t thank David Black enough for writing such a straight forward piece in the paper he owns. I think it was very brave and proves that not all rich conservative business men are anti environment. How refreshing that he actually cares about the future of the B.C. coast unlike our current governments. I’m
not naive and I realize he probably stands to make a big pile of money if he’s allowed to build a refinery and I also realize, for now we still depend on fossil fuels. That being said, his words were like a breath of fresh air and actually give me hope for the future. C. Scott Stofer Brentwood Bay
Council or UFC? I eagerly anticipate
the arrival of my Peninsula News Review every Wednesday and Friday. Trying not to spook our carrier, I’ll wait until she’s left the area before retrieving my paper to settle down to the latest juicy and sordid details about how our North Saanich council has managed to disagree ... again. These scraps are always divided along the same philosophical lines. The latest argu-
ment about the semantics of “important” vs “significant” indicate to me these scraps have become personal. I blame all involved for letting this get out of hand. Who needs UFC when all I have to do
is attend my council meeting? Kevin McTavish North Saanich

it has on us,” said Gordie Elliott Sr., the operations and maintenance supervisor at LÁU,WEL,NEW School. “Soccer is very important to our people and we host tournaments here all the time. It’s important to us the field is kept in good condition.” Elliott estimates the repair costs of the latest incident at close to $1,000. “That’s money out the budget that could have been used somewhere else but instead we’re using it to fill in the ruts, roll the soil and then re-seed the damaged areas. The last time this happened it took a long time for the field to be back in perfect playing condition.” As an incentive for information on the vandalism over the Easter long weekend, Olsen and Elliott have decided to offer a reward. “We have an open file with the Sidney North Saanich RCMP on this so if anyone has information they can contact them at 250-6563931,” said Elliott. A senior men’s and women’s soccer tournament takes place this weekend at the school, which Elliott said the field will be ready for. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com

Boat Show kicks off the 2014 boating season The boating lifestyle suits Vancouver Island. With its pristine waters, scenic views and mild weather, it’s no wonder the Victoria Harbour Boat Show cruises in-land year after year. And whether you’re a seasoned sailor or a novice at the helm, the Victoria Harbour Boat Show is where you’ll want to be Thursday, May 1 through Sunday, May 4. Celebrating 24 years of bringing the best of BC boating to enthusiasts young and old, the Victoria Harbour Boat Show is Victoria’s biggest in-water show. Presented by the British Columbia Yacht Brokers Association, the popular annual event is known for showcasing hundreds of new and pre-owned boats for sale, along with premium on-land and dockside exhibitors and incredible new
features that will keep everyone wanting more. The B.C. Yacht Brokers Association is committed to promoting boating across the province and to ensuring that the process of buying or selling a boat in BC is a positive and exciting experience. This year’s show, sponsored by Boating BC and the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority, is no different. This weekend, watch for Island Flyboard’s revolutionary water sport demonstrations and the Sailing and Life Training Society’s (SALTS) two majestic tall ships, sailing into Victoria’s Inner Harbour Friday afternoon! In addition to offering boat show attendees top-of-the-line products and accessories from more than 30 exhibitors rang-
ing from boat manufacturers to destination representatives, guests at this year’s show will also have the chance to meet with premium yacht brokers from across the Island and beyond to explore a range of models for every budget and boating activity. Visitors will find expert advice on all their boating needs and leave fully equipped to start the 2014 boating season. Keeping things fresh and fun, this year’s show welcomes back Island Flyboard, while also introducing a nautical-themed Kids Zone, a visit from the Sailing and Life Training Society’s two tall ships, the Pacific Grace and the Pacific Swift, and plenty of great prizes.

MUST-SEE BOATS of the Victoria Harbour Boat Show Marlow Mainship 32
With hundreds of boats on hand for this week’s 24th annual Victoria Harbour Boat Show, there’s lots to see and do over the show’s four days. Here are a few not-to-be-missed vessels:
The 2014 Marlow Mainship 32 has an overall length of 36’ 8” and comes in two layouts with sleeping accommodations offered for three to five people. The new M32 is remarkably open and spacious for its size, and features a handsome and innovative transom that electrically opens into a large swim platform when moored. Many features are introduced on this new design, some coming from her big brother, the Marlow Explorer.
54 Heritage Europa Grand Banks Yachts
The 54EU is distinguished in its class by a large, meticulously designed engine room with up to two meters of headroom. Walk-around engines are framed by steel rails with twin fuel filters, seacocks and other related components neatly aligned for easy access and service. All systems are clearly marked and smartly arranged, with an abundance of room for aftermarket equipment and storage.
Yacht Sales West
The Catalina 445 offers an award-winning design made in the US. Catalina Yachts is an industry leader that has stayed true to their roots, listening to customers and continually improving their designs. The Catalina 445 is an impressive display of quality, design and interesting details throughout.
Marlow Hunter 37 Specialty Yachts
The Marlow Hunter 37 features a voluminous interior that offers a generous craft cabin with access to the head/shower. The galley has a large Corian countertop with considerable storage for long journeys, plus great living areas and headroom matching many 40 footers. Traveller controls, Genoa sheets and halyards are all easily accessed from the cockpit or helm station. Her large main and smaller headsail combination are also easier to control. Like the popular Marlow Hunter 40, a hard chine has been incorporated in her hull design that increases form stability while creating more interior space.
This will be the debut showing for this allnew aluminum yacht, designed by Victoria’s own Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architect Ltd. The 65’ Concord is not only Coastal Craft’s largest model to date, it also introduces a luxurious new design into the yacht lineup. Powered with twin Volvo IPS1200, she reaches speeds of more than 32 knots in comfort. Many innovative features found onboard include lithium batteries, in-floor heating, ForsaStone panels, Eplex Vessel Control, and much more.
Yacht Sales West
The Greenline 33 is the world’s first production hybrid yacht. It has truly changed the face of motorboating and is a classic in the making. Since the launch of the first one less than three years ago, Greenline has become a brand with an evolving pedigree. With more than 300 boats launched, Greenline has the largest hybrid fleet in the world. Having been honoured with 19 international awards, Greenline is building what owners want: economical boating with quality workmanship.

Island Flyboard amazes with jaw-dropping thrills Returning to this year’s Victoria Harbour Boat Show by popular demand, the Flyboard – the coolest new jet-ski accessory to hit the international market – is sure to amaze guests of all ages. Professional instructors from Victoria’s own Island Flyboard – Vancouver Island’s exclusive dealer of the Flyboard – will take to sea and sky with their jawdropping tricks and acrobatic stunts during three daily performances. Visitors can take the opportunity to ask questions and get suited up to demo or purchase their own Flyboard. Originally developed by professional jet-ski racer, Franky Zapata, the Flyboard is a watersports apparatus that allows propulsion underwater and in the air, much like a powered wakeboard. The intuitive equipment relies on a system of hand and foot propulsion nozzles combined with personal balance for optimized stability and flight precision. In just under 20 minutes, users can master the basics with an instructor. Once you’ve found your balance, you’re on your way to gliding through the water like a dolphin or soaring through the air like a bird.

PALM & TAROT ESP
MYERSCOUGH, Jean October 14, 1937 - April 14, 2014 MYERSCOUGH, Frances Jean After living a full life, the last 7 years with cancer, our beloved Jean died on April 14. Surrounded by her family. Born October 14th, 1937, to Frank & Elsie Kerr at Blundellsands, Liverpool, U.K., Jean survived the blitz bombings of Liverpool in WWII. Educated at Merchant Taylorâ€™s School for Girls, and later Manchester College, Jean studied home economics, before becoming a Member of the Institutional Management Association of Great Britian. In 1960, Jean married her soul mate and best friend David Lloyd Myerscough. Jean and David had met in kindergarten, where Jean taught David how to tie his shoes. In 1962, their first son, Ian David was born in Liverpool. In 1964, the family was accepted to immigrate to either Canada or Australia. A letter from a close friend describing the natural beauty of British Columbia and opportunities available to new immigrants convinced them to cross the seas to Canada. Sight unseen, Jean and family arrived in Vancouver in 1964 to start their new life. A second son, Richard Kerr was born in 1965. In 1966, the family moved to Sidney on Vancouver Island where they immersed themselves in the beautiful marine surroundings. Constantly on the water in various craft, the family sailed, fished and island hopped, especially to Sidney Spit for beach barbecues. At her waterfront home on Roberts Bay, Jean was known for using a very loud air horn to call her sons from rowing, sailing or running wild on the beach. In the early 1970â€™s, Jean and husband David founded the Saanich Peninsula Sailing Association. From this small local club, 2 sailors went on to represent Canada in the Olympics. Jean organized regular dinghy racing and the popular Sidney Regatta. In the mid 1970â€™s the sailing club built a boat storage compound and boat ramp at Tulista Park. The ramp continues today as the popular Sidney Anglers ramp lays on top of the original. It was Jean and David who identified this dredged location next to the Ferry as the only place close to Sidney you could ramp launch a boat at low tide. Weekly sailing club meetings were always held at the Myerscough house on Roberts Bay, with Jeans baking being the major draw. Jean was so proud of her two sons, with Ian excelling in marathon running, competing in events such as the Boston Marathon, and Richard with his windsurf racing, eventually becoming an Olympian in 1988 at Seoul. Jean loved gardening and her flowers and arrangements were always incredible and could be seen weekly at St. Andrewâ€™s Church where she was part of the altar guild. She was a natural artisit, especially drawing and cross stitching original tapestries that her family hold dear, as well as creating stunning calligraphy. Jean also authored and illustrated a childrenâ€™s book when her grandchildren were born. Jean volunteered for many years with the Canadian Cancer Society. St. Andrewâ€™s Church, Sidney, and the Strata Council of Resthaven by the Sea. Jean enjoyed travelling throughout North America, Central America, Europe, small parts of North Africa and U.K. which she and David did as often as possible once he retired. Jean leaves behind husband David of 54 years, sons Ian & Richard; sister Heather (Dr. Don Treble and family, Albany, NY); daughter-in-law Laurie Anne; her four dearly loved grandchildren; Scott, Becky, Reece and Ana; sister-in-law Sue Myerscough; two nieces, Alison & Katherine, as well as cousins and friends in the U.K. and Canada. Many thanks to Dr. Darren Biberdorf. Dr. Andrew Atwell and his team at Victoria Cancer Clinic for their kindness and care, and to Dr. Myra Lynch and all the nurses, caregivers of the ERT. Sincere thank to Dr. Forester, the nurses, caregivers and volunteers at the Paliative Care Unit of the Saanich Peninsula Hospital; Thanks also to Rev. Osita Oluigbo, The Altar Guild and congregation of St. Andrewâ€™s Church, Sidney for all their prayers. At Jeanâ€™s request, there will be a private family service, at a later date. Donations in lieu of flowers could be made to B.C. Cancer Research or the Palliative Care Unit at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital.

The other piece of the puzzle is how important these services are to families who have members struggling with the disease, which affects an estimated 100,000 Canadians and has no cure. “It effects everybody differently,” Perry said. “I could have MS right now and not even know, versus the person like my mom, where her MS just progressed really quick and she
