Colwood against custody closure Kyle Wells News staff

Pitch perfect Colwood deputy city engineer and View Royal resident Emmet McCusker has been making guitars since 2005 and is starting to get some notice from musicians for his handiwork. See story on A13 Kyle Wells/News staff

Colwood city council has decided to send a letter to the minister of children and family development opposing the upcoming closure of the Victoria Youth Custody Services Centre in View Royal. Mayor Carol Hamilton, who worked at the centre as a correctional officer for 10 years, when it was at another Victoria location, said the centre is necessary to keep troubled youth close to their families and community supports. “The good news story is we don’t have as many kids perhaps in custody,” Hamilton said. “The bad news story of it is the kids we have in custody are the ones who need the most attention, most often and they need to be closer to those resources and as many of those community ties as possible.” Colwood’s suggestion is to keep the facility open and use part of it to house female inmates, as no custody facilities for women currently exist on Vancouver Island. Female offenders in the local court system have to be held in local police cells or placed in custody facilities in the Lower Mainland. Hamilton would like to see the issue come before the next Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) meeting in September to garner support from communities throughout the province. “In the meantime we just might start pushing it out to other communities on the Island and see where it goes,” Hamilton said. “I just think it’s a bad move.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

Few sports bring all ages, skill levels and neighbourhoods together in Greater Victoria quite like cycling. And while nearly six per cent of Greater Victorians commute to work via bicycle (about five times the Canadian average), most residents don’t see cycling as a viable option for commuting, said Frank Hudson, executive director of the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Week Society. “There’s actually not much of a difference between taking a bike or a vehicle into downtown (Victoria), even from as far away as Colwood corners,” he said. To prove the point, Hudson and his team organize an annual commuter challenge in the run-up to Bike to Work Week, pitting cyclists against drivers on their morning commutes. Colwood Coun. Judith Cullington works from home most days, but is jumping in her

electric Nissan Leaf to challenge Colwood resident Randy Scott to his workplace in downtown Victoria. “I may drive an electric car, but I’m also an avid cyclist,” she said. Cullington often makes the quick trip to city hall via bicycle, but said longer distances do require more than a willing rider. “If you live on the top of Triangle Mountain, you’re not going to want to make that trip home every day from Victoria,” she said. “It also depends on what’s on the other end. If you arrive at your office and there are showers, that makes a big difference. All these pieces need to come together.” The Bike to Work Week commuter challenge takes place today (May 21), while Bike to Work Week runs May 26 to June 2. Organizers will have four celebration stations on the West Shore this year at Crossroads Park Station in Langford; Sooke Road and Aldeane Avenue in Colwood; Portage Park in

Tech centre a beloved alternative Kyle Wells News staff

Metchosin Technical Centre is hosting an open house this weekend, as it prepares for changes to School District 62’s alternative education landscape. Students choose to attend the tech school, typically because they are interested in the trades and are attracted to the real hands-on, project-based learning offered there. “It’s open, they allow lots of different things,” Grade 9 student Jake Clark said. “You can fall through the cracks if you go to the bigger schools if you don’t exactly fit in.” Clark hopes to become either an electrician or a welder, so the tech school seemed like an obvious choice. He said he likes the smaller classes, the camaraderie and the physicality of the courses. Clark said he doesn’t know how students in regular classes do it. “Terrible. I don’t know if I could even go through that, I’m so used to this now.” “It was designed to re-engage kids in activities at school. Because by Grade 9, end of Grade 8, boys in particular, school becomes

pretty unimportant in the scheme of things,” vice principal Keith Boggs said. “The transition between Grade 9 and 10 is pretty difficult.” Attendance rates are “phenomenal”, Boggs said, and the school is typically on par with or above provincial averages for testing, despite about 60 per cent of its students having some sort of special learning designation. The school has smaller class sizes and puts an emphasis on learning outside of the classroom, with lots of field trips around the community, including a year-end camping trip. There is an emphasis on health at the school too, with physical education classes every day and no junk food allowed on school property. Fruit and veggies are provided to students at no cost as an alternative. “Once (students) come they don’t want to leave,” Boggs said. Starting this September, the tech school is going back to being exclusively Grade 9 and 10, after having Grade 11 and 12 students for the past few years. The move is a part of School District 62’s consolidation of its alternative schooling pro-

grams, which includes the relocation of Pacific secondary school programs to the West Shore Learning Centre Annex in Colwood. “We’re trying to get out of lease agreements, it’s an ongoing pressure to the operating budget and money’s tight,” SD62 superintendent Jim Cambridge said. The Annex will be home for students in the Grade 8 to 10 range, along with the tech school, and the WestShore Centre campus on Goldstream Ave. in Langford will be for students in grades 11 and 12. Staffing levels will stay the same. “This can be a challenge, but the whole school, all the different campuses, have come together to work on this,” Bogg said. “Instead of looking at it as a challenge, we’re looking at this as a brighter future.” Part of that bright future is hoped to be synchronizing school timetables so students are able to take courses at the various schools, even if they attend another one. Metchosin Technical Centre day, on Saturday, May 24, will give the public a chance to drop by, see what students at the school are

The importance of eye care Vision is one of our most valuable assets. Most people take their sight for granted and yet almost everything we do in life depends on it. Maintaining eye health and vision is an important part of our health care system. Having regular eye exams by a doctor of optometry can ensure that not only is your vision functioning properly, but also, that your eyes are healthy. Many health problems can be detected through the eyes. For example, diabetic patients should have yearly eye exams to rule out damage to the back of the eyes, because loss of vision can result if left untreated. During the eye exam, the optometrist will determine if corrective lenses would significantly improve your vision. Often people, who have never had an eye exam, do not realize what they are missing. This is particularly true of children. The optometrist can put all doubts aside, and if corrective lenses are required, a prescription will be provided to meet your specific vision requirements. A visit to the optometrist will ensure your vision and eye health remain at their best.

OUR VIEW

Youth custody closure a mistake It’s not always popular to speak on the side of those in jail, but the recently announced closure of the Victoria Youth Custody Services Centre in View Royal should make us all scratch our heads over just what our corrections system is for. Ideally it’s not simply to keep criminals out of society. That is one of its roles, yes, but it’s too expensive to house inmates and too uncaring to imagine this as their only role. Corrections facilities should give equal attention to helping inmates work through the problems that lead them to crime, whether it be addiction, mental health problems, a lack of support and resources or any other reason. Not all, probably not even most, will be helped, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying. And part of what can help those who do have a chance for redemption is to encourage strong ties to family and community. With the closure of the centre, it means there is nowhere on Vancouver Island to house youth in custody. The same is already true for women. This also means young people who are in custody while working their way through the local court system don’t have anywhere to stay except local jail cells, which have been described as inadequate, or a facility on the Lower Mainland, making court appearances by video or escorted travel. This means a complete separation from what little support these youth may have. And these are people who aren’t even guilty yet. The 1970s saw a prisoners’ rights movement come to life in the United States, demanding better treatment for those in custody. We don’t tend to worry much about prisoners rights these days, and the situation certainly isn’t as extreme as in the States or in the 1970s, but all it takes is visiting court for a day to realize most people in custody are scared, humiliated and emotionally fragile. Some have done terrible things and deserve to be locked away. All deserve a chance to do better, even if within the corrections system. The closure of this youth centre is a step back for a society which supposedly prides itself on its justice system. What do you think?

LETTERS Sewage petition is a step in right direction

Amalgamation could save millions for region

The petition for an independent review of the CRD’s sewage treatment plan is vital because the CRD’s sewage treatment system is incorrectly designated as high-risk by the federal government. The federal government does allow for deadline extensions if the application is made before July, 2014. One benefit to correctly reclassifying our risk rating will allow more time to find better sites and better technology. As well, it gives time for that independent review of the CRD sewage plan as well as necessary cost-benefit and risk analyses that have still not been done. It’s important that these analyses must include our marine-based sewage treatment system because besides being incredibly less-expensive then land-based sewage plants, our current system enjoys two important environmental advantages: it produces virtually no bio-hazardous sewage sludge nor does it require precious urban space for more sewage plants. John Newcomb Saanich

In 2011, Greater Victoria municipalities spent $1.5 million for the salaries of 13 fire chiefs to serve a mere 335,000 population. Compare that with Surrey (pop. 468,000), which spent less than $200,000, or Burnaby (pop. 223,000), which spent $170,000 for their fire chief. Overall our costs are 7 to 8 times higher for the same service. Greater Victoria municipalities spent $1.7 million on salaries for all the directors of engineering. Surrey (remember, a population 40% higher than Greater Victoria) spent $234,000. In total, chief administrative officers (city managers) in Greater Victoria were paid over $1.9 million. Surrey paid their CAO $326,000, while Burnaby paid $237,000. Why? Because they each need only one CAO. We have 13. Extend the same basic comparison to the costs of multiple police chiefs, deputy fire chiefs, senior financial officers and the many other senior management staff in each municipality in the CRD. It amounts to millions of dollars squandered annually on

inane redundancies. It’s easy to tally up over $10 million on the back of a napkin, just for salaries alone. Don’t believe a politician who maintains that costs are well managed in your municipality. If Greater Victoria mayors and councillors truly had the best financial and economic interests of their communities in mind, the opportunities for mutual assistance at the senior management level would be vigorously pursued, at a bare minimum. Some municipal councils have so far refused to receive their residents’ views on studying potential efficiencies via a non-binding referendum question on the November municipal ballot. Until then, it’s time to consider supporting those bold, brave, confident municipal candidates who have a transforming vision for Greater Victoria. Candidates who are committed to using limited resources more effectively and who can take our community of neighbourhoods to the next great level. Lesley Ewing Oak Bay

Victoria-based band Current Swell were in the West Shore last week, shooting a music video for their song “Keys to the Kingdom.” On Thursday, May 15 the band headed to Millstream Self Storage for the video, which is a spoof on the TV show Storage Wars. A fake meth lab was set up in one of the units, á la Breaking Bad, and members of the band pretended to bid on the contents within, with local radio host Dylan Willows playing auctioneer. “We’re just trying to have a bit of fun,” frontman Scott Stanton said. “Usually they send us to Vancouver, we’ve shot in Toronto too. It’s nice to know I’ll be slepping in my own bed tonight.” Expect to see the video released in late June. news@goldstream gazette.com

Hobby strikes a chord Kyle Wells News staff

Emmet McCusker has a rather intricate and time-consuming hobby. When he’s not filling his role as deputy city engineer with the City of Colwood, McCusker spends his time building guitars from scratch, a hobby which is blooming into a side-gig, as notable musicians begin to take notice of his work. His all-consuming hobby started in 2005 when McCusker’s wife bought him a Gibson Les Paul guitar. Always a tinkerer, McCusker decided he wanted to try a different pickup (the device which picks up the vibrations in the instrument for electric amplification) in the guitar. When he took it apart he noticed the woodworking in the guitar and thought “I could do that.” “That was the beginning of it and it just went from there,” McCusker said. “It’s kind of more than hobby, but it’s in an interesting place right now, it’s in a real transition.” Now McCusker is starting to build guitars to order for musicians he knows, including American musician Marcus Eaton, who played guitar on the latest David Crosby album. The guitar for Eaton is an acoustic, which McCusker has

only built a few of. They present a whole other level of challenge because every choice you make will affect what the guitar ultimately sounds like.

Kyle Wells/News staff

“The electrics are fun to make, but basically the electrics are probably a little bit better than high-end furniture making,” McCusker said. “When you’re into an acoustic it’s science and magic.” A player since the age of 15, McCusker has been in a couple of bands and continues to play back up guitar for some local musicians. With a hobbyist background in woodworking, building guitars has seen passions merge for McCusker and has become

a new obsession. His house is full of guitars and the walk to his front door is lined with slabs of wood drying for guitar building. “It’s the sense of creating something and the absolute thrill of playing something you’ve worked, in the case of an acoustic, upwards of 180 hours on to build,” he said. “It’s a great thing.” The concentration needed while doing the work is also nearly meditative, McCusker said. His latest electric is made mainly from local maple, a material he said forestry companies often consider as firewood but is actually quite sought after by guitar makers for its distinctive rippling grain. Looks come second for McCusker though, whose main focus is tone and playability. “If I want to build something that looks nice, I’ll build furniture,” he said. “I’ll make them look nice, but it’s all about tone.” Visit vicnews.com for a video of McCusker playing the first acoustic guitar he ever made. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com
