Sidney’s ready to handle most disasters Disaster management students from Royal Roads say the community still needs better communication Steven Heywood News staff
In the event of a major disaster, Sidney has the infrastructure at the ready to help its residents — but it stands to improve. Those were the findings of a group of Royal Roads University students taking their masters degree in Disaster and Emergency Management. Over the last few months, the group has been meeting with local officials, emergency services and business own-
ers to see how Sidney stacks up to a United Nations risk reduction model. Peter Lemieux, from Edmonton, says overall Sidney did quite well. “There’s always an opportunity to become more resilient,” he said. “Sidney needs to collect independent plans and come up with an overall strategic plan.” Those independent plans, he explained, are those created by different organizations, levels of government and businesses. This, however, is not unique to Sidney,
Lemieux said, noting that it’s a fairly easy fix. What that will do, he continued, is help ensure that in the event of a disaster, all efforts to recover are coordinated and there’s a plan in place for business continuity. In the recent example of flooding in High River, Alberta, businesses there were forced out due to high water didn’t have plans to save their important documents. That, coupled with material losses has meant many businesses will not re-open.
The risk resilience report shows Sidney is making progress in most essential areas graded — from budgeting for a disaster and updating emergency plans, to installing early warning systems and education programs. Sidney is doing very well in performing risk and infrastructure assessments and enforcing realistic building regulations. Councillor Tim Chad says he learned more than he was able to provide to the Royal Roads students. When asked what the Town
will do with this report, Chad said they will use it as a road map. “We can do a lot with it. We can do more of the things that are needed to reduce risk. We can make the Town a bit safer and ensure we get out of the way of the people doing the job and make sure they have the resources they need.” Chad said this will help the Town create a new public safety plan.

Peninsula News in brief Carbon offsets
SIDNEY — The Town of Sidney plans to continue buying carbon offsets for around $9,000 from Offsetters General Portfolio of Vancouver. In doing so in 2012, Sidney achieved carbon neutrality status through B.C. government’s Climate Action Charter. This year, however, council agreed to drop that status to level two, or into a carbon neutral management phase.

Deep sea voyage goes online
UVic’s Ocean Networks Canada live streaming its latest undersea scientific research Steven Heywood News staff
cientists still cannot predict when the next big earthquake will occur, but new equipment being placed at the bottom of the sea this week could give Vancouver Island more than a minute of early warning. The University of Victoria’s Ocean Networks Canada, which operates the NEPTUNE and VENUS cabled ocean observatories, has sent an expedition 300 kilometers west of Victoria. Researchers plan to perform maintenance and support research at the Cascadia Basin and Endeavour and Clayoquot Slopes. Part of the mission, says Adrian Round, expedition leader, will be to place seismic instruments on the Juan de Fuca plate. “We’re putting sensors down there to enable us to detect P-wave events,” said Round, who is also ONC’s director of observatory operations. P-waves, he explained, occur before the arrival of the more destructive S-waves created by an upthrust movement of tectonic plates. The new instruments being placed, Round said, will be able to detect the early indications of an earthquake. They can relay a warning between 30 to 90 seconds before the shock wave actually hits. What can be done in 30 to 90 seconds? Round said that is enough time for people to shut off gas lines and other vital infrastructure, such as sewage pipes. “This voyage will be to put the first of those seismic sensors down there.” Already, the ocean observatories monitored by UVic researchers and scientists around the world, has equipment that can detect tsunamis — part of a global catastrophe monitoring system — as well as water and sediment conditions in the event of a quake. To get that equipment up to 2.6 kilometers under the ocean, Round said they have leased the ROPOS remote underwater vehicle (ROV) from the Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility. Operators will join scientists on board the Canadian Coast Guard vessel John P. Tully until May 27, where they will be conducting dive missions 24 hours a day. Round said since this is one of the only times of the year that researchers can get out to the deep sea sites, they must make the most of every minute they have. To that end, the expedition will conduct experiments, collect data from the ocean floor and replace equipment that needs maintenance. Specialized equipment like the ROV is

needed to do that, Round explained, to withstand the immense pressures at such a depth. The ROV mounts a series of lights (Round says after about 50 meters, there is little to no light in the ocean) and cameras. This enables operators to see what they’re doing and provides a unique opportunity for everyone else back on land. Coming with the crew, mounted on board the John P. Tully, is a large satellite dish. This, as well as heavyduty fiber optic cables, will allow the undersea activity to be streamed live online. The dish, says Virginia Keast, media relations for ONC, will provide high bandwidth video, data and voice service. Not only will it enable 24/7 ship-toshore communication, Keast added it will enable scientists around the world to check data and see what’s happening in real time. This also means anyone can watch the ROV in action online. People can do so by visiting www.oceannetworks.ca and clinking on the “This voyage live video link. People will will be to put be able to the first of those see the ROV sensors down deliver equipment to the there.

Keast warns people, however, that is can take up to two hours for the ROV to descend, so they may wish to time their viewing hours. Once down there, places like the Endeavour hydrothermal vents offer unique views. “These hot vents are unique from a world perspective,” Round said. “They’re not as viewed as they are here.” The vents have created an ecosystem like no other and Round said they have to be careful with how much light exposure and activity they do there. Sea life, such as tube worms and crab, are not used to light at all. Human impact is monitored even so far down. Loaded with crates of instruments, computer monitors, testing material and more, the John P. Tully is expected to return to the jetty at the Institute of Ocean Sciences in North Saanich on May 27. The expedition, said Round, will keep the entire crew busy around the clock. “There’s no shortage of things to do.” firstname.lastname@example.org

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 its 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. 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 haven’t been found guilty of a crime. 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 it is in the U.S. or was 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. But 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?

Washington State. Atlas editor Keith Thor Carlson summarized the research this way: “Viewed from the perspective of the aggressor, raids and attacks appear to have been motivated primarily by a desire to obtain quick wealth (in the form of slaves and property such as dried and smoked salmon) or to exact revenge for previous insults.” Archaeological study of stone fortifications and weapons at fishing sites in the Fraser Canyon traces a history of inter-community violence back at least 3,000 years. Historians characterize some of this as warfare. British colonial authorities had some “settler constructs” about these activities: they saw them as assault, robbery, abduction, murder and slavery. This is the seldom-discussed backdrop for the European settlement of British Columbia, the imposition of British law and the later establishment of church-run residential schools. None of this is to excuse the forced removal of aboriginal children from their families, the horrendous abuse and neglect or the multigenerational damage to a culture already weakened by waves of smallpox. This 1928 plan to fix what was called the “Indian problem” deserves to be understood by everyone. But glossing over historical context and presenting a guilt trip to students would serve no one well.

Industry responds to David Black Letters to the Editor
David Black responds:
Half-truths on dilbit from CAPP Editor, In a letter to this paper Greg Stringham, on behalf of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, makes assertions about the behavior of diluted bitumen (dilbit) in salt water that are at best half-truths. He states that dilbit floats on salt water and that it is no more dangerous at sea than other types of oil. That is wrong. It is more dangerous at sea, and infinitely more so than refined fuels like diesel and gasoline. What Stringham doesn’t mention is that the same report from Environment Canada that he quotes from, goes
on to say that dilbit sinks in seawater when there is sediment present. Another study by a top U.S. environmental chemist, Jeff Short, says the same thing. It was filed by the Gitxaala Nation to the National Energy Board in March 2013, so Stringham is well aware of it. That study says animal and plant matter like plankton, as well as sediment, cause the dilbit to sink. Our entire coast has sediment and plankton in abundance. All our rivers are glacial and full of silt. Plankton is omnipresent, which is why the whales are here, and shallow seas like Hecate Strait throw up huge amounts of sediment from the bottom in storms. Dilbit will sink in our waters
if there is a spill and it will harden up like caulking material on beaches and the intertidal zone. The intertidal zone includes large mud flats in the midcoast because the tidal range is more than 20 feet there. How would we ever get them clean again? Stringham also says our Canadian oil industry is interested in the Kitimat refinery idea. That is news to me. I have talked to all the companies and there is no interest whatsoever. That is why I am spearheading the project. It will keep dilbit out of tankers and provide an enormous valueadd for B.C. Canada’s oil industry needs a west coast pipeline. Coastal
First Nations, the Yinka Dene First Nations, Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Terrace, Smithers, the provincial and federal NDP, the federal Liberals, the provincial and federal Green Party, many blue collar unions and the majority of folks in B.C. are against Northern Gateway’s idea of putting dilbit in tankers. A refinery is economically viable. Why is it so hard for our oil industry to see that the way forward is to build a green refinery which will cut greenhouse gases by 50 per cent, create thousands of jobs, generate billions of new annual taxes, and gain acceptance for a safe pipeline?

Province offers teachers a signing bonus VICTORIA – The B.C. government is offering teachers a $1,200 signing bonus and reducing its proposed contract length from 10 years to six. The latest proposal was presented Friday to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation by Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for the
province’s 60 school districts. The bonus is contingent on settling the dispute before the end of the school year. Cameron also informed the union that it will begin cutting teachers’ pay by 5% if teachers continue to refuse to perform some of their duties. The union would have to apply
to the Labour Relations Board if it wants to contest it. There was no change to the BCPSEA’s latest general wage proposal, a 6.5% increase over six years. BCTF president Jim Iker earlier termed it a “lowball offer” that B.C.’s 40,000 teachers would be unlikely to accept.

New market ready to roll Organizer Jill Walker excited for market opening in July Devon MacKenzie News staff

Gabriel Sam (left), Francis Bob (right) and Elmer George (back) perform a blessing during a ceremony at NIL TU,O Child and Family Services Society last Thursday.
A new market is coming to town and organizer Jill Walker says she is looking forward to seeing Brentwood Bay come alive on Sundays in the summer. The market, which is set to start in July, will take place in Pioneer Park and can feature up to 25 vendors. “The park is booked, council has given their blessing and we’re getting good feedback from vendors interested in participating. It’s all coming together,” said Walker of the event, which is less than six weeks from opening. Walker said the focus of the market
will be on local vendors with unique items. “Of course there will be fresh fruit and veggies and all the usual market stuff, but I’m also focusing on having vendors who have small home business and specialize in up-cycled or recycled items,” she said. Walker had tried to get the idea off the ground last summer in Verdier Park but encountered issues around timing and parking. “With the location in Pioneer Park, there’s parking, lots of space and it’s a central area in Brentwood, so it’s a great place to have a market,” Walker said, adding she also hopes to have acoustic entertainment during the event. Space is still available for vendors at the Sunday market. Those interested can contact Walker at email@example.com. firstname.lastname@example.org

Sidney Deputy Fire Chief Brett Mikkelsen asked with 400-plus business in Sidney’s downtown area, how can his department better engage them. Lemieux said places like North Vancouver are working with chambers of commerce on education plans. Those help business owners realize the importance of having a disaster plan in place. The risk report, now in the hands of the municipality, out-

lines Sidney’s performance in 10 essential areas, as well as where improvements can be made. Key findings, said Lemieux, include: • good leadership and Town management • little debt and high reserve funds • a caring community • excellent response capability • stakeholders have emergency plans available. The report also suggests both short-and-long-term fixes with the ultimate goal of making the
community more resilient to disaster. Those range from joint exercises and creating flood zone maps, to updating emergency response plans and earthquake retrofitting. The students’ primary recommendations are for more community engagement on the issues of risk and recovery and using education to mitigate potential losses in a disaster. Lemieux said if Sidney works a bit harder, it can become a role model community in the U.N.’s resilient cities campaign.

• Sidney councillors are adding their voice to those asking the province not to close the Victoria youth custody centre. Coun. Tim Chad, who sits on the CRD’s regional youth justice committee says the impact will be felt throughout the system. He suggested council wait for a report from the committee before acting. Mayor Larry Cross added the closure amounts to a downloading of costs onto lower levels of government. • The Town’s beautification project along Beacon Avenue has begun. Sidney spent $150,000 this year to upgrade its planter boxes, benches and garbage cans along the main street. • Council sent a development permit application at 2060 White Birch Rd. on to its Advisory Planning Committee for review and comment. The owner of the property is proposing a four-story, 34-unit multi-family building — which is allowed under the land’s current zoning. • Council approved a request by Marker Development to build a cover over four parking stalls — and a municipal sewer rightof-way — at 9829 Seaport Place.

The Parkland Secondary School alumni association is working hard to put the finishing touches on the 40th celebration and reunion for the school at the end of the month. According to organizer Eleanor Jones, the last few plans are falling into place for what is sure to be a weekend full of celebration, memories and old friends reuniting. Parkland alumni will flood Sidney during the last weekend of May for the celebrations. “The weekend kicks off with registration package pickup and the official welcome at Parkland school followed by Alumni Social at the Mary Winspear Centre,” said Jones, adding that Friday evening’s social which includes a bar, “Retro Sidney” appetizers, a photo booth and memorabilia displays, is for past students and past and current teachers and staff. On Saturday at the school from noon to 4 p.m. the alumni group is hosting a community open house and family day with games provided by Panorama Recreation. Later that night dinner,

Glenda Korella and the Peninsula Singers entertained residents recently at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Extended Care Unit.
Novel explores fight for freedom Saanich Peninsula author Caren Powell releases new book News staff
“At the time, says Caren Powell, “everything was changing.” She is speaking about South Africa where she and her husband Nick lived for 38 years. Powell has vivid memories of the turmoil, violence and uncertainty surrounding massive change in that country as apartheid, its system of racial segregation, was coming to an end. It’s this time in her life — and how it affected her family, friends and neighbours — that is the basis for her self-published book, The Dark Side of the Rainbow. “I had so many vivid memories of living in South Africa,” said Powell, who emigrated to Canada with Nick after they decided to leave. She said there were splits in the communities that were springing up as Africans gained more freedoms — as well as plenty of push back from the predominantly white authorities. “Many people at that time were stuck in their ways,” she said.
Saanich Peninsula resident Caren Powell’s new book. The story is about a family farm, its white owners, black labourers, the strangers and other characters coming in and out of the lives of the protagonists. While the novel itself is fiction, Powell said the stories are true — they happened during her life in South Africa on her family farm. Only the names have been changed, she explained.
In writing her book, Powell said there were times she would feel angry or sad, adding she relied on Nick to help keep her going. Other times the words would just flow — even in the middle of the night — and she’d have to get them down or lose the ideas completely. Each chapter in The Dark Side of the Rainbow follows a certain time period in the lives of the characters. The story, Powell explained, is her attempt at bringing out the differences that occurred at the time — from those living in extreme poverty to the harsh politics of the day and the divisions between black and white. Powell said the cover of her novel represents the vision of the late Nelson Mandela, who helped lead South Africa through its time of change. While the rainbow is a symbol of hope and freedom, Powell said, there was a lot of darkness before its arrival. The Dark Side of the Rainbow officially launched in late April.

Cops for Cancer team set for Tour de Rock 2014 Christine van Reeuwyk News staff
When Dean Norris-Jones rides 1,100 kilometres this fall he’ll have roughly the same amount of people behind him. The vice-principal at Reynolds secondary attributes his role as rider on this year’s Tour de Rock to the students who have, for 10 years, taken ownership of a nine-day Cops for Cancer fundraising frenzy. Norris-Jones was announced as special guest rider in the 2014 Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock rider during Friday’s official team launch at Reynolds. NorrisJones will represent the support schools across Vancouver Island. “It’s a bit humbling because I’m being recognized as a rider, but it’s a symbol of what everyone else has done,” Norris-Jones said prior to the announcement. “It’s recognition of all the hard work that the thousands of kids have put in.” The teacher battled and
defeated thyroid cancer more than a decade ago and subsequently suggested supporting the tour with some school fundraising. Kids helping kids after all is a great story. “That first year we set a goal to see if we could raise $5 for every person in the building that’s $5,000,” They amassed $16,000. Since then students and staff have sculpted the twoweek campaign designed to combat fundraising fatigue. It starts the Tuesday eight school days before the Canadian Cancer Society tour riders roll through the front door. “The kids have really come to own the fundraising and it really galvanizes the staff and students in the school,” he said. “This is a great 10th year for us, with any luck we’ll pass the half million mark in fundraising.” Last year they raised $101,000 “It’s pretty impressive stuff. The staff here is so amazing and the kids are just incredible,” NorrisJones said. “It’s a cause

that came easy at 25 and 35 aren’t coming as easy as they were,” he said. “For sure it’s testing me, but it’s kind of ‘hurts so good’,” Many a rider has attested over the past 16 annual rides that the emotional often outweighs the physi-
cal anyway. Things could get heady when he rolls back to the roost of Reynolds in early October. But he’s not phased. “I’m more about the journey than the goal, the end line. I’m going to take every day as it comes. I live in the
