Amelia Allen obeys the summertime dog restrictions on Gyro beach by walking with Bernie west of the stormwater outfall. Saanich pound officers say many other dog owners disregard rules that prohibit the animals from being on the popular beach, as well as at Cordova Bay and Mount Douglas beaches, and Whitehead Park.

Pooch prohibition poses problems Summertime sees dogs banned from four of 170 parks Kyle Slavin News staff

Summertime on Saanich beaches appears to be when many dog owners want what they can’t have. Case in point: man’s best friend is keeping Saanich pound officers busy at Gyro beach, Cordova Bay beach, Mount Douglas Park beach and Whitehead Park (Prospect Lake), the only four parks in Saanich where these animals aren’t

allowed in the summer months. “It’s about public safety. These are highly utilized beaches and parks when the weather warms up; lots of kids and families,” said Saanich pound inspector Susan Ryan. “It’s only these four parks that restrict dogs in the summer; these four parks, that’s all we’re asking.” From May 1 to August 31, dogs are prohibited from Gyro beach and Cordova Bay beach after 9 a.m. daily. (At Gyro beach, the animals are allowed west of the stormwater outfall.) Dogs are completely restricted at Mount Doug (in the section of the park north of Mount Douglas Parkway) and at Whitehead Park.

But Ryan says she and her colleagues are running into many dog owners in these spots who knowingly flout the rules and become aggressive and rude when they’re informed that their dog isn’t allowed there.

“Please respect the bylaw and go to one of the 160 other parks in Saanich that allow dogs.” - Pound inspector Susan Ryan “Our goal is education – we don’t want to go to that level of giving you a ticket,” she said. “As the resistance is increasing though, we’re just going to give ISTING

months. The warm weather bring with it more dog attacks, barking complaints and dogs left in parked vehicles. “When the days get warmer we get hundreds of emergency calls to rescue dogs whose lives are endangered because they are left in hot cars by their guardians,” said Lorie Chortyk, the BC SPCA’s general manager of community relations. “Many well-meaning guardians leave their dogs unattended in parked cars while they run errands. Tragically, this can lead to serious heatstroke and even death for their pets.”

tickets. And it’s not one person every hour, it’s constant. These parks are very well signed. It’s just a constant disregard for the bylaw.” Having your dog in a prohibited area comes with a minimum $100 ticket. Pound officers and the Saanich Police Department ask dog owners to avoid these few restricted areas, as they and their animals are welcome at the more than 160 parks in the municipality. “There are many other beaches and parks where you can be with your dog all year round, off leash,” Ryan said. Dog-related issues increase exponentially in the summer

Weather prognosticators predicting Greater Victoria is in for one hot summer Kevin Laird News staff

Fear not Greater Victorians, a warm, dry summer is on the way. Weather forecasters are predicting above-normal temperatures and less rainfall along B.C.’s south coast this summer. “The combination of high pressure and above-normal sea surface temperatures in the northeast Pacific will lead to a slightly warmer-than-normal summer with reduced chances of rainfall,” said the season forecast from Accu-Weather, a for-profit weather forecasting service. The prediction is good news for those who make their living in the region and depend on good weather. Jay Basi, manager of Mattick’s Farm Mini Golf, says even though the business’ success is heavily dependent on the weather, they are lucky to have a spot at the popular farm destination that’s covered by large trees. “The weather is extremely important to us,” he says. “It’s what brings people out. And since we’re in a nice sheltered spot, it gives

people a little respite on those hot sunny days. It’s the best of both worlds for us.” The 18-hole course opened for the season on Mother’s Day weekend and basked in the glory of great weather for their entire first week open. “We hope it’s like this all season,” Basi adds. First Nation carver Alex Spence spends most of his days along the Inner Harbour honing his craft. He notices a change of attitude from people when the sun shines. “People are friendlier when it’s warmer,” he says. “They love their hot weather here. We’re very fortunate.” Victoria boasts the highest average maximum temperature in Canada at 15.3 C and the highest average minimum at 7.1 C. The region records on average 2,109 hours of sunshine every year and is blessed with 308 sunny days. Paul Nursey, president and CEO of Tourism Victoria, says while sunny, warm weather is a surprise when tourists visit here, it doesn’t draw them to the region. “Customers choose to come to

Two Saanich sport groups are set to receive financial assistance from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development to host sporting events in the district this year. The province announced $192,000 in funding for Hosting BC programs for 43 events in 33 communities around the province last Thursday (May 15) to support a range of events including volleyball, sailing, and taekwondo competitions.  Elk Lake-based Victoria City

Rowing Club, which hosts the 2014 RCA National Rowing Championships, and Victoria International Sevens Society, hosting the Victoria International Sevens Rugby, were each awarded $5,000. “Hosting BC events bring thousands of visitors to our province, generating revenue and jobs for B.C. families and inspiring British Columbians to get active. It’s a winning program that we’re proud of,” said Cathy Priestner Allinger, CEO

of ViaSport, the organization administering the funds. “It’s thrilling to see a growing number of high-calibre sport events held across our province, each bringing a sense of excitement, camaraderie and pride into every host community.” Hosting BC has invested $4.5 million since 2004 in sporting events in communities throughout the province, building B.C.’s reputation as a prime sport-hosting destination. reporter@saanichnews.com

THE NEW RX 350. REDESIGNED TO YOUR YO SPECIFICATIONS.

Lambrick students’ oil pad cleans up at national science fair Lambrick Park Secondary students Vicki Kleu, 18, and Austin Sawyer, 17, doubled the wins at the 53rd annual Canada Wide Science Fair held last week at the University of Windsor. Their project, a reusable and fully biodegradable oil adsorption pad, won the pair $500 cash prize as one of eight Manning Innovation Achievement Award winners, the Senior Excellence Bronze Medal and their choice of an entrance scholarship to one of two Canadian universities. The team wanted to find an inexpensive alternative to the expensive booms that are currently being used to enclose oil spills. Kleu and Sawyer took it a step further than just containment – they also devised a material that would absorb and retain the spilled oil. They came up with a design that would not only allow the oil to be adsorbed, but would not allow the boom to sink from the weight. The Canada Wide Science Fair drew 463 young scientists in Grades 7-12 to compete for close to $1 million in cash, prizes and scholarships and to showcase bright minds that are innovating for Canada. The Ernest C. Manning Innovation Awards Foundation selects eight winning projects, four of which earn the $4,500 Manning Young Canadian Innovator Awards, and four others earn $500 Manning Innovation Achievement Awards. reporter@saanichnews.com

HCP garden needs help

The Horticulture Centre of the Pacific

hopes a volunteer will overhaul its ornamental grass garden. The garden was created in the early days of HCP but was abandoned for a number of years. The area was redesigned and brought back to life in 1999, but has increased in size and in plant varieties in the years since. Now a small group of dedicated volunteers work in it a few hours a week. That crew is in search of someone to plan and design a work plan for the grass garden to develop an even more spectacular area than it already is.

The vaccine being produced for next winter includes H1N1 and common seasonal flus H3N2 and influenza B.

YOUR VIEW

Park space is to be shared Didn’t we all learn about the importance of empathy and sharing back in kindergarten? It seems silly that Saanich pound officers are having to hand out tickets to dog owners who apparently missed those lessons. These officers aren’t just getting push back from some owners; every week they’re getting an earful from enraged dog walkers who say that banning dogs from certain parks is unfair, who feel discriminated against, and who say issuing tickets for blatantly disobeying the bylaw is simply a tax grab for the municipality. Let’s put empathy in a different context. Just as a lot of people have fears of snakes and bears, there are also many people who are terrified of dogs, big or small. You might be agitated or upset if somebody let their off-leash boa constrictor slither through the grass at Gyro Park and come up to your family to say hello. You know nothing of that animal’s temperament or how friendly it really is. Just because dogs are a more acceptable domesticated pet than a snake and you choose to be an animal owner doesn’t give you the right to impact on someone else’s ability to enjoy a public space. Especially if that space is somewhere that has restrictions on animals. These restrictions give every park user (dog lovers included) a little bit more peace of mind that they, and others, can fully enjoy their time in the sun. Saanich has more than 160 parks in its stockpile and only six of them don’t allow dogs in the summer. With such an overabundance of dog-friendly parks, there is no reason dog owners need to bring their pet to a restricted area. Your dog will be just as happy playing at Arbutus Cove beach as it would be playing at Mount Douglas Park beach. Its enjoyment of a public space should not supercede another person’s ability to share that same park. Empathy doesn’t need to be a deep, emotional movement. It’s as simple as having courtesy for those around us. Sharing really is caring. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@saanichnews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

You can also take steps to minimize allergic reactions, such as going outside later in the day when pollen levels are lower and reducing allergens inside your home. If your allergies are severe, it’s a good idea to get tested by an allergist or doctor to pinpoint causes. From there, you can often find effective treatments. Doing all we can to prevent climate change from getting worse won’t do much for allergies this season or next, but in the long run, it will make life easier for all of us, and our children and grandchildren. After all, this isn’t about plants being bad for people. We can’t live without them. It’s more about the natural systems that keep us alive and healthy being put out of whack by our reckless behaviour. This year’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report concludes that climate change is real and that humans are largely responsible, mostly through burning fossil fuels and damaging or destroying carbon “sinks”, including forests, wetlands and oceans. The report also shows we still have time and opportunities to avoid the worst impacts, but only if we act quickly to protect and restore forests and green spaces and reduce our consumption of fossil fuels through energy conservation and shifting to renewable sources. There are many benefits to addressing climate change. One is that we’ll all be able to breathe easier.

nor does it require precious urban space for more sewage plants. John Newcomb Saanich

Greens could see changes in next election Re: MLA not green enough, (Your View, May 14) The letter-writer succinctly expresses the frustrations felt by many who are represented by both Canada’s only elected Green Member of Parliament and only elected Green Provincial Member of the Legislative Assembly. And

it’s from a double hit that Gordon Head voters must recover. To explain such unique election results let’s not revert to the old left-coast granola metaphor (nuts, fruits and flakes) to describe errant voters. That MLA Andrew Weaver has demonstrated a secular ability to support some export-oriented natural resource proposals is a positive sign he may last as a political entity – as either a (nonreligious) Green or, by recanting, he might even be welcomed as a member of British Columbia’s current governing party. Despite well deserved praise

for her work with constituents requiring assistance, in the next election the majority of voters are not likely to support MP Elizabeth May with her consistently negative arguments against industrial or natural resource development. It’s unlikely she’ll again be able to split the two main-party votes for a plurality win. In both Saanich and Oak Bay there’s hope that the voters’ former and long-established federal and provincial political acumen will be restored. Ron Johnson Saanich

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 five per cent if teachers continue to refuse to perform some of their duties. That will be imposed “soon” and the union would have to apply to the Labour Relations Board if it wants to contest it, Cameron said. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association has dropped its plan to

start billing the union for the cost of benefits, estimated at $5 million a month, opting for the pay cut in an effort to persuade the union to stop its phase one strike action. There was no change to BCPSEA’s latest general wage proposal, a 6.5 per cent increase over six years. BCTF president Jim Iker earlier termed that a “lowball offer” that B.C.’s 40,000 teachers would be unlikely to accept. The new term length is a small modification of the earlier proposal, which was for a 10-year deal with wage negotiations to reopen for the final four years. That proposal would have meant the BCTF couldn’t strike after six years if they didn’t accept the wage extension, because they would still be under contract. The BCTF began work-to-rule action in April, refusing supervision outside classrooms and communication with school management. A March strike vote gives the BCTF a mandate to begin rotating strikes at any time. editor@saanichnews.com

Time to Check Your Windows and Screens! Did you know windows are great insulators no matter what time of the year it is? They help keep rooms cool in the warm months, and warm in the cold ones! It's important to maintain them by cleaning the glass and window tracks, and make sure weep holes are not blocked (this includes sliding door tracks - lubricate openers and track rollers with silicone spray). While you're at it, why not check your window screens! Let the breeze in and keep the bugs out by repairing your screens if needed. If you need help, you know where to find us!

Time to Check Your Windows and Screens! Did you know windows are great insulators no matter what time of the year it is? They help keep rooms cool in the warm months, and warm in the cold ones! It's important to maintain them by cleaning the glass and window tracks, and make sure weep holes are not blocked (this includes sliding door tracks - lubricate openers and track rollers with silicone spray). While you're at it, why not check your window screens! Let the breeze in and keep the bugs out by repairing your screens if needed. If you need help, you know where to find us!

As for the park restrictions, Ryan says dog owners should make themselves aware of the restrictions and simply be considerate to other users. “Not everyone likes dogs or is comfortable around dogs. … There’s limited spaces where these people can go that don’t have dogs. Please respect the bylaw and go to one of the 160 other parks that allow dogs,” she said. editor@saanichnews.com

HIV tests offered to all B.C. adults Routine HIV-AIDS testing is being offered once every five years to all B.C. residents aged 18-70, building on infection control efforts that have been recognized around the world in reducing disease transmission and death. B.C.’s “Treatment as Prevention” strategy has proven so effective in pilot programs in Vancouver and Prince George that the government is extending its outreach efforts across the province. Routine testing of pregnant women has all but eliminated mother-child transmission, and anti-viral therapies have cut the death toll of AIDS by 90 per cent since 1996. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall said going beyond identified risk groups has proven effective in finding infected people in time to provide effective drug treatment. The treatment not only extends life to nearly normal lifespan, it also prevents most transmission of the virus once the patient is being treated. “These guidelines hold the promise that by expanding HIV testing as we have done, we will be taking another great step towards potentially eliminating HIV in the province of British

Columbia,” Kendall said. Dr. Julio Montaner, director of the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV-AIDS, said the United Nations continues to use B.C. as a model for its global effort to eliminate the disease. “Back in 1995 we used to have one person or more dying per day at St. Paul’s Hospital alone, every year because of HIV and AIDS,” Montaner said. “Today, my (physician) residents don’t know what that looks like. We virtually have eliminated death from HIV.” Health Minister Terry Lake said the program is funded with $19.9 million a year, and is recognized as an investment in prevention that saves the province money as well as improving individual wellbeing for patients. Doctors will continue to offer HIV-AIDS tests to patients of any age who present with new or worsening medical conditions that require lab tests, show symptoms of HIV infection, are pregnant or if they request an HIV test.

packaging and plant pots are just a few of the new items accepted curbside under the Multi-Material BC system. But figuring out what can go in will be tricky. Just about all plastic jugs, bottles, jars and clear clamshells can go in the blue box. But plastic foam trays from the grocery store meat counter have to be taken to a depot, as does the plastic shrink wrap on top of it, grocery store plastic bags and various other film plastics and Styrofoam. And there’s a long list of other items that either aren’t accepted or can only go to depots. (A full list is at recyclinginbc.ca.) Also required to go to a depot is any glass to prevent bottles and jars from breaking and contaminating other

recyclables. B.C. Bottle Depot Association executive director Corinne Atwood predicts plenty of confusion surrounding the rules on what can go in blue boxes. “People aren’t going to pack their glass jars to depots,” she said. “They’re going to pitch them in the garbage bag.” Depots won’t necessarily accept everything that MMBC directs their way either – she said many have decided there’s not enough money in it for them. MMBC managing director Allen Langdon said the decision to accept mainly soft plastics at depots only and refuse some types –  such as crinkly cellophane from flower bouquets –  is because there are better local

markets for some recyclables than others. Langdon predicts consumers will like the new system. One of the advantages, he said, is that the list of what’s accepted in blue bins, what isn’t and what has to go to depots will now be consistent across B.C. “We have a common list of materials accepted so that you’re not having to reeducate yourself – the same list of materials is accepted whether you’re in Surrey, Vancouver or Langley.” But it’s far from a universal system, with some Lower Mainland cities –  such as Delta and Abbotsford – opting out, at least for now. And MMBC has yet to strike deals covering some other areas of the province as well.

“At launch we’ll be covering 75 per cent of the province,” Langdon said, adding MMBC will see what its budget allows in future years to plug “strategic gaps” in the collection system. “This is going to be evolution,” he said. “I don’t see where we are today to be necessarily permanent.” The provincially mandated system is intended to make companies that generate waste responsible for recovering it, allowing municipalities to potentially reduce their property taxes. But critics like Atwood contend MMBC’s member companies will raise their prices to consumers to cover their costs and residents whose cities have opted out of the system will end up paying twice. “When you break down the fees they’re often less than a cent per unit,” Langdon responded. “I don’t know that you can necessarily say there are going to be higher consumer prices.” Some big question marks remain – including whether the newspaper industry, which refuses to pay MMBC fees, will set up its own stewardship system and redirect newsprint that generates much of the revenue from recyclables that MMBC depends on. There are also other business sectors continuing to fight the MMBC model, demanding more accountability and other reforms, in some cases threatening legal action. “There’s just so many confusing and complex aspects to this program from the perspective of business,” said Mike Klassen, B.C. director for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business. “That’s why we asked for a time out. But the government is pressing ahead.” editor@saanichnews.com

Footballers miss Guinness mark While a world record eluded Greater Victoria soccer enthusiasts, the annual Anneswer to Cancer event set a new Canadian record earlier this month. It also scored for Victoria Hospice, with the soccer tournament raising $60,000 to support end-of-life This year, organizers attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive soccer passes of more than 12 yards. They came up about 100 people short on the world record, but players set a Canadian record. reporter@ saanichnews.com

Anti-Cancer Nutrition -

The drive to serve you better.

Hillary Krupa, RNCP

At ICBC, we want you to feel confident that you’ve brought your vehicle to an auto body shop you can trust. That’s why every year we independently survey approximately 60,000 customers who use ICBC-accredited c.a.r. shop VALET facilities for repairs to find out which shops are delivering top-quality work and service.

Fireside Chat on Integrative Care -

This year, 15 top-performing shops in BC earned the AutocheX Award for achieving the highest customer satisfaction scores among thousands of auto body shops in North America. These shops provided on-time deliveries, high standards for repairs, and kept customers informed throughout the repair process.

As a holistic nutritionist, Hillary encourages healing and balance through the use of healing whole foods for cancer prevention and healing.

This informative session provides an opportunity to learn about integrative cancer care, the supporting medical evidence and to ask questions about InspireHealth’s classes and programs. While the information is of special interest to people with a cancer diagnosis, it is also of benefit for prevention.
