No teachers’ deal, no school on Monday

Campbell River schools are expected to be closed Monday as teachers begin rotating strike action across the province. Monday is the first day for rotating strikes by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation which has rejected the government’s latest contract offer. All public schools on Upper Vancouver Island are expected to close for the one day next week, but the Campbell River school district superintendent is hopeful a deal can be reached. “It is the sincere hope of the Board of Education and School District 72 administration that a settlement may be reached to avoid any disruption to classroom instruction,” wrote Tom Longridge in a letter sent out to parents this week. “As negotiations… continue through the weekend it may not be possible to confirm Monday’s strike activity until the day before.” In the event of a strike, there will be no bus service and students are being told to stay at home. If an agreement is reached, parents and guardians will be notified by an automated phone call or e-mail or by radio and on

Area D referendum a go Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The province approves of Campbell River’s s out her n b oundar y extension plans and is prepared to sign off on a referendum to allow Area D residents to have their say. Coralee Oakes, minister of community, sport and cultural development, said she will give the seal of approval to a June 28 referendum on the condition that both the Strathcona Regional District and the city approve motions to hold the vote on that date. “After careful consideration, I have concluded that I would be prepared to sign an order for a referendum on Saturday, June 28, 2014, provided that I receive, before the end of day of Friday, May

23, 2014,…resolutions from the council of the City of Campbell River and the board of the Strathcona Regional District requesting the referendum,” Oakes wrote in a letter to the regional district. The regional district board met Thursday, after the Mirror went to press, and was expected to approve the June 28 referendum date while the city has scheduled a council meeting for this afternoon to do the same. Oakes said she also requires that council and the regional district board acknowledge that this is a short time frame within which to hold the referendum and as a consequence, Oakes wants commitments from the board and council that it will make every reasonable effort to provide the

best, most accurate information to residents. “I recognize the interest of both parties in a resolution of the boundary extension question well before the general local government election (to be held Nov. 15); however, I am concerned with the limited time available to organize a referendum and the ability to ensure that citizens have the information they need to make a well-informed decision on this most important question,” Oakes wrote. The question is, do Area D residents want to join the city in order to get sewer service? The city is proposing extending its southern boundary to take in 535 Area D properties south of the city limit to McGimpsey Road (an estimated population of

1,235) and hook those properties up to the city’s sewer service. If 51 per cent of the affected residents vote in favour, each property owner is expected to pay $9,300 – either in one lump sum or over 20 years, likely starting in 2015. Residents would have up to five years to connect to the city’s sewer system and pay the $1,800 connection fee. There would also be a third cost for property owners – to connect their home to the sewer line. The project, which would require the city to extend its sewer line south to Area D, would also cost Campbell River taxpayers – an extra $24 a year in user fees to be exact – which would last for 20 years until a $3.9 million project debt was paid off.

ell, folks, on the eve of Bike to Work Week, I’m digging out they spandex shorts, greasing my sprockets and pumping my tires to get in on the fun. Actually, I don’t have any spandex shorts – thankfully, for your sake and mine – but I do have a 1990s-era Peugeot mountain bike that I bought from Spokes many years ago and is still going strong.

Go to our website ( and you can see the discussion. One of the challenges of course in biking to work in this town is the hills. I have to come from the lowlands of Willow Point, up Dogwood Street to the 2nd Avenue area. It was a vigorous pedal when I last attempted to bicycle commute. Now that I’m even more out of shape, I predict I’ll be walking up the Dogwood Hill coming out of the Beaver Lodge Lands. But, hey, what’s life without few challenges, eh? So, break out the chain oil, snap the waistband on those spandex drawers and let’s get pedalling!

or a tune up. Likewise, ensure your helmet and any other gear such as lights and rain gear are in good condition. You don’t need expensive high-end equipment, but it does need to be in good operating condition to be safe. Pre-trip route planning is important. If you can pre-ride your route to work and note how long

it takes so you can allow plenty of time to get to work. With a bit of research you should be able to find a pleasant route and minimize the need to ride in traffic – a map of bike routes is available on the Campbell River City website. It may be tempting at times but riding on sidewalks is illegal and dangerous for both cyclists

and pedestrians. When you are on your bike the rules of the road apply to a bicycle same as a motor vehicle – you must obey traffic signals, and ride on the road in the same direction as traffic. If you need to use a sidewalk or crosswalk as part of your commute dismount and walk next to your bike. Check out to learn more about biking safely in

With a bit of planning, your bike commute can be an enjoyable part of your day. Often the toughest part is just getting out the door and on your bike, after that, it’s just a matter of pedalling.

Police investigate following a suicide attempt in Willow Point on Wednesday morning. The condition of the woman who set herself on fire is unknown.

Woman set herself on fire Police are saying little about a Wednesday morning incident in Willow Point. RCMP, along with fire-

fighters and ambulance paramedics were called out at 7:30 a.m. where they found a woman in distress. She was taken

by ambulance to Campbell River Hospital, but no other details were released. Witnesses told media the woman appar-

ently attempted suicide by pouring gasoline on her clothing and igniting herself. Her condition is unknown.

Council rejects mayor’s task force Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The mayor is now officially 0-for-3 on his attempts to form a series of mayor’s task forces. Last October, council rejected Mayor Walter Jakeway’s recommendations to form groups of no more than five people to look into exhibition grounds, and community gardens. Jakeway’s third suggestion, a task force to investigate developing the city’s waterfront from Jubilee Parkway to Race Point Road, was the only attempt that didn’t die at the council table. Instead, council voted to defer the issue to the city’s Advisory Planning and Environment Commission to discuss. However, the commission reported back to council last week with a recommendation that council drop that idea too. “The general consensus by the group was to not give priority to the waterfront task force at this time,” said Coun. Ryan Mennie, who chairs the commission. The advisory commission, with help from the Community Services, Recreation and Culture Commission, noted that the city already has 11 documents that regulate waterfront development, including the official

community plan, the Tyee Spit Long Range Plan, a Strategic Parks Plan, and a Downtown Waterfront Design Charrette. Mennie predicted in October, when Jakeway proposed the waterfront task force, that it would likely not pan out because the concept was too broad. “I don’t think we’re asking clearly enough what we want,” Mennie said. “I think it’s going to fail and confuse the commission.” Coun. Claire Moglove was also not supportive of Jakeway’s initiative, saying that the city already has several plans in play that take into consideration issues such

as boat ramps, marina development, sea walk expansion and other waterfront concerns. Jakeway’s intention with setting up the waterfront task force was to have a group of people investigate future marina capacity development,

The shelter will soon be transported back to Shadow Lines trucking of Langley which converted the shipping container.

The downtown shelter for the homeless is now closed and that has left some people looking for cover. “We’ve already heard complaints about people sleeping in bushes near their business,” says Paul Mason of Campbell River Family Services. It was lot different this past fall and winter with the arrival of the portable homeless shelter that was set up beside the downtown fire hall. The converted shipping container slept up to 16 people in eight rooms, was heated, had a washroom and an outdoor lockup for their belongings. It was monitored and managed by members of the Radiant Life Community Church, located across the street where guests could get breakfast and dinner. From Nov. 1 to April 30, the shelter was used 1,746 times, averaging 9-10 people a night. The low-barrier shelter also allowed for people to stay the night if they were under the influence of alcohol or drugs. And by staying at the shelter, notes Mason, it’s easier to start a dialogue with them to get help and assistance. The most important aspect was to provide the homeless with shelter during the cold months, but the community benefited as well. The shelter was endorsed by Campbell River RCMP and the number of police callouts to the downtown area fell by more than 60 per cent while the shelter was open, particularly at nights. There were other benNEWS SPORTS BUSINESS ENTERTAINMENT COMMUNITY LIFESTYLES OPINION

The problem, he adds, is there’s little cash for another cold-weather shelter and there’s a bigger need for a year-round shelter and sobering centre. The Campbell River Homelessness Coalition continues to work on this issue. “Right now there’s nothing for next year.


This was a one-off pilot project,” says Mason. “People who are homeless need somewhere to go downtown. The biggest complaint we hear is they’re hanging out at the library and community centre, but where else are they going to go when it’s windy, cold and raining?”

efits as well, says Mason, such as fewer callouts for firefighters and ambulance paramedics, and fewer visits to the hospital emergency room. “When it first opened there was some resistance,” says Mason. “But later we took a general survey and the downtown businesses really started to embrace the

shelter.” In fact, many people, groups and businesses supported the shelter through donations of cash, clothing, food and fuel. They also donated materials for fencing and landscaping. “The outcomes were all very positive and this didn’t cost local taxpayers a dime,” states Mason.

Our View

The long and short of four-year terms Okay, straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, the local electorate will be voting in their candidates for a four-year term. It has been difficult to find out that We say: It will information as Elections BC only deals with provincial elections not municipal mean a big ones. But Tom Moore, the top honcho commitment to dealing with municipal elections said it is definitely a four-year term beginning run for council with the November 2014 election. The proposed change in elections in B.C. is waiting for Royal Assent. It’s now 100 per cent certain.

So what does this mean for local voters? It could mean a number of things, some good, some not so much. Those who plan on running will be committed for four long years. That means meetings, meetings and more meetings, most likely 84 council meetings, 84 Committee of the Whole meetings and numerous in-camera meetings. And that doesn’t include the advisory committees or other organizational meetings. Forget about much of a private life. And on the down side, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to get someone off council for the length of their term. But, the up side of the whole situation is that hopefully

we will have a new, enthusiastic council that can work together over four years to make things happen. There would be enough time to set plans in action and get projects completed. How many second or third termers will we have? How many candidates for mayor? How many new faces on council? It is going to be very interesting to see if the “old guard” will be replaced or if locals like what they accomplished in the past three years. X will mark the spot. – Black Press

Need free business PR? Call the mayor and council

Paul Rudan No, really

It was good to see the Coast Discovery Inn reopen last week. The owners and staff all looked happy and genuinely pleased to be back at work. I think it’s important to have the downtown landmark back in business, because it sure beats seeing the front entrance boarded up. I can’t imagine what visitors thought seeing the hotel closed and looking as if the wrecking ball was ready to go to work. I’m sure it was perceived with curiosity given the huge amount of building and economic activity currently taking place downtown. Anyhow, good to see the DI back in business, but it was interesting to see the mayor, a former mayor and several councillors there for the re-opening. “We’re here to support business...and

it’s good to see everyone back at work with the same wages and benefits,” one councillor told me. I can’t argue with that, but it’s still surprising how our politicians pick and choose who they support and why. Look at it this way: It wasn’t as if the hotel was opening for the very first time; nor was it newly renovated; council played no part in the reopening; and lastly, it was closed for two months because management wanted the union out. To be fair, I don’t think this particular union did much to represent its employees other than to collect dues. Perhaps it deserved to be dumped by the workers who successfully decertified. That said, I wondered aloud to a few councillors why they had not been at New Horizons when the new employee

contractor took over at the beginning of the month? That remark brought some uncomfortable looks and a few raised eyebrows, but really, are both situations any different? If you recall, the private owners of the care facility decided to layoff all their employees when the union contract expired so they could hire most of them back, under a different contractor, for less money, benefits and seniority. Many went back, some did not, just like the DI. I guess the “big difference” was council was invited to attend the hotel reopening while Carecorp Senior Services prefers to “fly under the radar.” I can’t blame Carecorp because the whole process of financially screwing people who look after the elderly is disdainful to a lot of people in this community.

(By the way, the only councillor to publicly support New Horizons workers was Larry Samson who wasn’t there for the hotel reopening.) As for the DI, my best guess is the mayor and council were there to give it a much-needed public relations boost. The hotel can use the free PR too especially after losing the business of the Campbell River Rotary Club, which held its weekly luncheon meetings there for decades. The Rotarians now meet at the Maritime Heritage Centre and, I suspect, it’s not just for the better view. Anyway, tourist season approaches and the hotel staff will need to be at the top of their game. It’s election year too and that means voters will be closely watching how mayor and council play out the rest of their season.

Mayor disagrees with Tidemark grant Reporter


Cit y counci l has approved funding to help the Tidemark Theatre bring acts into town but the mayor is taking issue with council’s decision to give the money out earlier than expected. The Tidemark asked the city for a one-time, $50,000 grant in 2015 to use as ongoing programming funding which would be used for the sole purpose of booking shows. But council chose to divide the funding over two years, starting with $25,000 this year and the remaining $25,000 given out in 2015. Mayor Walter Jakeway, who opposed that motion, said he didn’t think it was fair that the Tidemark is potentially taking money away from other deserving groups. “When I look at all the groups that come to council that ask for money and get no

response, I can’t support giving money a year in advance,” Jakeway said. “I don’t know why we would twist ourselves and fiddle with our money to give the money early when the request was for 2015, and not fulfil the needs of just as legitimate groups in 2014.” Coun. Ryan Mennie said the purpose of giving the money a year in advance is so the Tidemark knows how much it has to work with when booking entertainment for next year. “The allotment we’re talking about in this motion…will really only come into effect for their 2015 season,” Mennie said. “It’s working ahead with an allotment so that they can program properly for the 2015 season.” With the funding, the Tidemark can establish an ongoing account, or reserve, that will be built up using profits from financially successful shows.

Council seeks guidance on late delegations KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

City council may start cracking down on people who sign up late to speak at a council meeting. It’s up to council to vote during a council meeting whether or not it will allow a delegation not on that meeting’s agenda and typically council approves the late delegation. People who wish to speak to council are supposed to submit a delegation form to city hall before 3 p.m. on the Wednesday prior to the council meeting. But recently council

will allow the theatre to absorb any losses without impacting its operating budget. Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture, said currently the Tidemark is forced to use money from its operating budget to cover losses from shows that have low ticket sales. “ These temporar y losses are then balanced out over the long term by other shows that are profitable,” Milnthorp said. “This practice of using operating funds for this purpose can be risky and can negatively impact the operation of the theatre by draining operating funds.” The city provides the theatre with its operating funds ($160,000 in 2014) for utilities and building maintenance and also gave the Tidemark $275,000 this year for capital projects such as the current seat replacement project and new carpeting.

has been approached by people wanting to speak who have not made the deadline to be put on the agenda. Coun. Andy Adams, at the May 13 council meeting, suggested council needs a policy or a set of guidelines to follow when dealing with late presentations. “We have had the situation where there have been a number of late delegations come on and I certainly understand the timeliness of it, however, I would like staff to sort of investigate the pros and cons of it,” Adams said. “Do we let a late delegation on for a full 10 minutes or do we

do what other municipalities and regional districts do, and that is put late delegations on at the end or maybe for a shorter amount of time, taking into consideration people who have put their presentation on the agenda and may have to wait for a much longer time that what they anticipated.” Coun. Claire Moglove, who recently has consistently voted against allowing late delega-

tions, agreed that council could benefit from a policy dealing with unexpected presentations to council. “I think I’ve made it pretty clear over the last few months that I will be voting against that, unless there’s a timeliness for that particular late delegation,” Moglove said. “But having a report from staff on how to manage it I think would be appropriate.”

When caterpillars invade, here’s how to fight back It’s a peak year for those hairy crawlers that are consuming your trees PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Hairy little crawlers are dropping in your hair, squishing underfoot and ruining your deciduous trees. The tent caterpillars are back and this year it seems like they’ve arrived with an invasion force. “Every seven years they seem to peak,” says Nigel Lambeth of Campbell River Garden Centre. Entomologists say the cycle for the western tent caterpillar is roughly every nine years with a three-year population outbreak. This would be one of those outbreak years and it’s hard not to miss the silken tents wrapped around the tender branch ends and new leaves. But then those white tents transform into dark writhing balls of hungry caterpillars which feed, cocoon and transform into moths, before starting the whole cycle again. Generally, tent cater-

pillars won’t decimate or kill larger trees, but they’re still a stressor on plants and can defoliate small trees. More than anything, they’re considered an unsightly nuisance and despised by many a gardener. “We stocked up on

BTK because we knew what sort of year it was going to be,” says Lambeth. BTK, or B acillus thuringiensis, “is found naturally in the soil and is known to cause illness in various insect larvae, including cater-

pillars,” according to the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources. The bacteria, notes Lambeth, is very effective in controlling caterpillar populations as it disrupts their digestive systems. Better still, according to the ministry website, there’s, “no known toxic effects on humans or other mammals, plants, birds, fish, honeybees, or other beneficial insects.” But there are other ways to control caterpillars which can continue the hatch through the summer. Lambeth advises to look for the eggs which appear as a “smear of brown chewing gum” on leaves. This can be easily wiped off. Another simple method is to break off the branch ends that have nests and properly dispose of them. A s l i g ht l y m o r e involved process requires plucking out the majority of caterpillars, but leaving behind the ones which have vivid white dots around the head. These dots are the eggs of parasitic wasps and flies. And if you think squishing caterpillars

tial organs so then the major organs last! It’s all natural, Lambeth says with a grin,

and the parasitic insects help keep the caterpillar populations in check throughout the summer. Finally, he adds, it’s a good idea to give infected trees a little more water and a shot of fertilizer to encourage new leaf growth. Last, but not least, it’s never a good idea to try burning caterpillar tents when they’re still in the tree. You may set fire to the entire tree and surrounding grasses, and this sort of pest eradication is sure to bring a visit from the fire department.

Allergies are a modern epidemic

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. What people experience: <I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered Bell Allergy Relief. I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around. I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB < For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days. I was amazed. On 3rd day all allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, #24 NPN 80043542 25, Dover, OH <Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX morning. Therese Noto, 58, New York, NY.

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall a sleep. In most cases also stops snoring and gasping for air (sleep apnea) first night. Stops torturing your partner all night. Good sleep prevents being tired next day. Tired people work only at half capacity. What people truly experience: < I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally #23 NPN 80045172 Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Storm name local boy captain for upcoming season


he C ampb el l River Storm Junior Hockey Club have announced Jordan Rauser, Braydon Horcoff and Josiah Friesen as captains for the upcoming 2014-2015 season. This leadership group carries several games of Junior experience between them. Local boy, Rauser will don the ‘C’ while Horcoff and Friesen will wear two of the team’s three ‘A’s. Rauser, 20, is entering his third season with his hometown team and has played in 97 games in a Storm jersey. This past season, Rauser donned an ‘A’ as one of the teams Assistant Captains and tallied 3 goals, 7 assists for 10 points and 55 penalty minutes helping the Storm finish 2nd in

Jordan Rauser (centre, #27) has been named captain of the Campbell River Storm for the 2014-2015 season.

the North Division and win their first playoff series in eight seasons against the Naniamo Buccaneers. Rauser will be looked upon to continue his solid, two-way game from the backend as well as providing grit

and toughness in what will be a young defensive core. Rauser says he doesn’t feel any pressure with being a Captain in his hometown, “it’s a great honour to be named captain of the Storm.

Being born and raised in Campbell River, it is a great feeling to be able to represent this town.” He continued to discuss some of the goals of this year’s team, “building off of last year’s success we will look to be a hard working team on the ice and a hard working group off the ice in the community. Our goal is to bring Championship Hockey back to Campbell River.” Horcoff, 20, from Prince Rupert, is entering his second season with the Storm and his fourth in Junior Hockey after winning a KIJHL Championship with the Castlegar Rebels two seasons ago. Last season Horcoff produced career highs in goals (8) assists (24) and points (32) split between the Princeton

Two players sign on with Campbell River The Campbell River Storm announced goaltender Kyle Cheema (97) and defenseman Trevor Bottomley (97) have committed to the program for the 2014/2015 season. Storm Head Coach and GM Lee Stone is happy to have the pair in the fold. “We are very pleased with both Kyle and Trevor’s decision to further their hockey development in Campbell River and the VIJHL. We look for ward to working together with them in their search of the next level.” Cheema, 17, just completed his first season of

Major Midget Hockey with the Valley West Hawks of the BCMML. The 6’0 goaltender is extremely talented and moves very well in the net, working closely with Coquitlam Express Goalie Coach Joey Ali. Bottomley, 17, recently played on the Okanagan Hockey Academy U18 prep team that won the College School Sports Hockey League. Bottomley finished with 1 goal, 16 assists for 17 points and 32 penalty minutes in 47 games played. Bottomley is a strong defensive defenseman with the ability to move the puck effectively, mak-

ing the simple plays and is known for his deter-

ers. His penalty killing acumen is a big reason why the Storm held the first ranked penalty kill throughout the season at over 90%. Last season Friesen tallied 9 goals, 13 assists for 22 points in 46 games and will be relied

Duo back by popular demand Gardeners Green Folk Music Club in Merville announced upcoming house concerts with Quinn and Qristina Bachand. Because of the popularity of these young performers, there will be two concerts, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, June 12 and Friday, June 13.   Many of you will have seen Quinn accompanying Ashley McIsaac at the Native Son’s Hall during the Winter Bites Festival – yes Quinn is that incredible young guitarist who Ashley says is the best accompaniest he’s ever played with.  And indeed Quinn, who is only 18 years old, has been accompanying McIsaac on various tours for the past five years or so.  Quinn has spent much of his life playing with his older sister Qristina, who is a classically-trained violinist and fantastic fiddler. The pair played two sold out concerts at Gardeners Green two years ago.   The siblings are at an important juncture in their lives. Qristina relo-

cated to Amsterdam in 2013, finishing a masters degree in public health. Quinn will be leaving for Boston in the fall to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where he has been awarded a full scholarship.  While they continue to be busy with many projects, including recording their third CD together, they are as committed as ever to their musical partnership, with tours and performances scheduled in Canada, the U.S. and Europe well into 2015.  Indeed,  our house concert will be sandwiched between the Orkney Folk Festival in Scotland and a tour of PEI. For more info about the Bachands and music samples, visit their website at .  Tickets to our house concerts on either the 12th or the 13th are $20 each ($10 kids) and must be reserved in advance. All the takings go directly to the performers. Tickets include hot drinks and a dessert buffet.  For further info and to reserve tickets call 250-337-5337.

Body building sisters take the podium at Western Canadians


Kaylee and Kirsty Mascia competed in the Western Canadian Bodybuilding competition in Kelowna taking first and third place.

aylee and Kirsty Mascia Competed at the Western Canadian Bodybuilding Competition in Kelowna over the May long weekend. They competed in the fitness section, which entails posing in a two piece suit and doing a fitness routine consisting of strength, flexibility, and dance/gymnastic moves. Both girls have danced from a very young age,

but only recently started serious weight training. Kaylee started weight training 18 months ago and Kirsty 10 months ago under the guidance of personal trainer Jeff Messinger owner of West Coast Muscle & Fitness. Sarah MacDonald owner of West Coast Muscle & Fitness and Ryan Bell, both personal trainers, also had a part in training them for this competition. In the final three months

of their training, fitness coach Sally Lunsford set them up with a diet and workout plan. Jeff, Sarah and Ryan, who all have won titles themselves in bodybuilding competitions, all helped with the finishing touches of teaching them how to pose for their posing round. Kaylee and Kirsty worked with their mom Kathy Mascia, who is a dance teacher and owner of Kathy Mascia School of Dance,

to choreograph their fitness routines for the competition, which they will be performing again at Kathy Mascia School of Dance recital, Stars of Tomorrow 2014 on Sunday June 8 at the Tidemark Theatre at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. After countless hours in the gym and dance studio, the Mascia sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hard work paid off when Kirsty walked away with first place and Kaylee third place.

Council rejects honey bee day, cites too many proclamations of these proclamations,” Moglove said. “I think it’s important that we not make these proclamations just because. I think we need to take them seriously.” Kerr argued the honey bee proclamation was of the “utmost importance.” Kerr, in his draft proclamation, noted that “honey bees are responsible for a third of the food we eat because they are responsible for 70 per cent of our food crop pollination.”

Ekdahl, who is from Saskatoon, Sask., wrote that honey bees are also critical in dairy, beef and pork production, which is what makes the recent decline of the honey bee all the more alarming. “In 2013 the national average of honey bee deaths was 28.6 per cent,” Ekdahl wrote. “This same 2013 report confirms that one Canadian province lost almost half of its bees and no province was shown to have a sustainable loss of 15 per cent or

lower. The national loss of honey bees is twice what is considered sustainable.” Ekdahl said while there are many explanations offered for this decline, the most glaring is the irresponsible use of pesticides. Ekdahl’s goal with dedicating one day to the honey bee is to educate people on the loss of the honey bee and how people can change their habits to reverse the trend. Coun. Andy Adams said while he is aware of

the issue, he believes it’s a matter best dealt with by senior governments. Adams noted that Ekdahl, in his letter, wrote that the B.C. government has already declared May 29 as Day of the Honey Bee and several municipalities have called on the federal government to declare a national honey bee day in Canada. “I think it’s well taken care of,” Adams said. Mayor Walter Jakeway agreed with Moglove

that the volume of proclamations is getting out of hand but at the same time acknowledged it may be worthwhile to focus some attention towards bees in another way. “I think we’re getting too many proclamations,” Jakeway said. “My father was a beekeeper so I understand the bee situation quite well. I think we should maybe highlight the importance of bees. I don’t know if a proclamation’s going to do that.”

City council won’t give the honey bee its day. Clinton Shane Ekdahl, founder of Day of the Honey Bee, wrote a letter to Campbell River council asking the city to join 328 other local governments as well as the B.C, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan provincial governments in proclaiming May 29 honey bee day. Coun. Ron Kerr presented council with a

draft proclamation and asked council to endorse it , but c ou nc i l l ors refused. Coun. Claire Moglove said council needs to be selective in its proclamations otherwise they lose their value. “I don’t have anything against the honey bee, I’m sure they do a lot of good, however, I’m concerned that we’re proclaiming days for this, that, and the other thing and it diminishes, in my opinion, the significance

CLARIFICATION RE: IRRIGATION SYSTEM FOR STREET TREES ON SOUTH DOGWOOD A recent letter to the editor provides an opportunity to clarify details about the irrigation system for street trees recently planted on South Dogwood Street. Trees planted in this location in 1999 failed to thrive, and the upgraded irrigation system for these trees improves upon the original irrigation system to ensure the new trees have adequate water for good health and survival. The City will continue to irrigate the trees on a regular schedule for three years until they are fully established. Funding for system installation came from the Parks operating budget.


Careful, Not so High! Before you start building your fence, remember there are regulations that affect height. These are intended to help create “good neighbour relations”. Residential front yard maximum fence heights are generally 1.2m (4 ft) and side and rear yards are 1.8m (6 ft).

GRANT OPPORTUNITY DOWNTOWN FAÇADE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM Interested in updating your storefront or building façade? The City’s Downtown Façade Improvement Program can help get you started! The Downtown Façade Improvement Program provides grants to renovate, restore, or redesign commercial building façades in the revitalization area of downtown Campbell River (see map). Grants are available for up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs, up to a grant maximum of $10,000. Application intake deadline is July 18, 2014. To be considered for the program, construction projects may not be started before grant approval and must be completed by December 31, 2014. Additional applications may be considered after the intake date, depending on available funding. To find out more, join us for a public information meeting at 7 p.m. on May 28, 2014 in the Rivercorp Board Room, located at 900 Alder Street. Application packages will be available at the meeting, and will also be on the City’s website ( starting June 2, 2014. For further information, please contact: Land Use Services Telephone: 250-286-5726 Or email As part of ongoing efforts to revitalize the downtown area, this grant program is designed to encourage business and building owners to invest in building upgrades, creating a more interesting and appealing streetscape that attracts more people and business to Campbell River’s downtown core.


PROPERTY TAX PAYMENTS ARE DUE BY JULY 2, 2014. The City has posted more information about property taxation on its website (under What’s New). Paper copies are available by contacting City Hall. Property owners are reminded to check tax notices and the water, sewer, and garbage/recycling solid waste charges to ensure active or de-activated secondary suites are correctly noted in the user fee calculation.

Can I pay by monthly installments? Beginning in August 2014 the City will be able to accept payments made by monthly installment through a direct-debit to your bank account. This year’s property tax notice will include an insert outlining the program and an application form for those who wish to make regular monthly payments towards their annual property taxes.


How does my property tax bill compare to the Council-approved rate? Council approves the general levy for the entire City budget, but that doesn’t mean you will see that same percentage change on your tax notice. Many factors influence the taxes on a given property making it different from the overall percentage approved by Council. Each year, some property assessments increase while others decrease, so your property assessment change may or may not be close to the average BC Assessment reports – and your taxes may or may not increase to match exactly with the rate set by Council. Another factor is that the City of Campbell River collects taxes on behalf of other groups (Schools, Hospital, Library, Strathcona Regional District, BC Assessment, and the Municipal Finance Authority). They develop their own budgets outside of the City’s control. The rate passed by Council is only for the levy included on the Municipal – City line that appears on your tax notice.

What happens if property taxes go unpaid? The City of Campbell River is governed by the Community Charter which legislates a 10 per cent penalty be imposed on any property taxes that remain outstanding after the July 2, 2014 due date (including unclaimed Home Owner Grants). This legislation does not give authority to the City to waive late penalty charges and is applied consistently to all taxpayers. Your payment and Home Owner Grant application (if eligible) must be received by the City of Campbell River on or before the due date to avoid penalty charges. Grants not claimed or incomplete are considered unpaid taxes and will result in penalty charges. Can I defer my property tax payment? The Province of British Columbia has a tax deferral program, which is available to homeowners aged 55 and older, families with children, and persons with a disability.

City currents The Property Tax Deferment Program is a loan program

Other charges such as water, sewer, garbage and recycling also appear on your notice, but are not included in the general levy. Things to remember about the Home Owner Grant • Residential property owners can claim the Home Owner Grant without paying property taxes. • Banks and financial institutions cannot claim the home owner grant for you. • Unclaimed Home Owner Grants count as unpaid taxes, and are also subject to a 10% penalty if an application is not filed by the July due date. How to apply for the Home Owner Grant • Go online to and click on “Payments” under “Online Options” then launch the Home Owner Grant application from the link at the bottom of the screen. Use your access code (called “Access” on your tax notice, beside the folio number). • Apply in person at City Hall 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays What is the amount of the grant available? For 2014, the maximum: BASIC Home Owner Grant is $770 ADDITIONAL Home Owner Grant is $1,045 ($770 + $275) Note: The Home Owner Grant amount is reduced or eliminated based on property value and minimum property tax payable. Where do I get a grant application? The grant is located on the bottom of your tax notice that will be mailed out at the end of May. If you know your folio number and access code (located on your tax notice), you may claim your grant online through the City website ( Click on “Payments” under “Online Options”. What are my payment options? Payment methods accepted by the City of Campbell River: • Online banking through your bank • Interac (ensure your daily and/or transaction limit will cover the amount of your payment) • Cheque • Cash

that allows you to defer your annual property taxes on your home. To qualify, you must have and maintain a minimum equity of 25 per cent of the current BC Assessment property value, after deducting the UPPER limit of all outstanding mortgages, lines of credit and other charges on your home.

There is a one-time administration fee of $60 for a new approved agreement and an annual $10 renewal fee. For more information, please visit (see individuals / property_taxes). What do homeowners get for property taxes paid? In 2014, the average* household in Campbell River will pay approximately $188 per month in taxes, user fees and parcel taxes to pay for more than 100 services such as: • Potable water, sanitary sewers and storm water services • Police and fire protection • Emergency response service • Garbage, recycling and yard waste collection • Road and sidewalk maintenance and repair • Street lighting and traffic control • Recreation facilities including the Sportsplex, Community Centre, Centennial Pool, city parks, tennis courts, ball fields, Discovery fishing pier and the new Splash Park • Planning and building inspection services • Bylaw enforcement • Cultural facility grants for the Tidemark Theatre, Campbell River Museum, Maritime Heritage Centre, Haig-Brown House, Campbell River Art Gallery and the Sybil Andrews Cottage • BC transit service • Campbell River Airport services • Environmental monitoring and management • Economic development, tourism and the Visitor Information Centre *Average residential property value is $256,600. DID YOU KNOW? Every $100 the average household pays in taxes is divided between the federal ($50), provincial ($42) and municipal ($8) governments. The municipal property tax payment funds more than 100 different City services.

Ombudsperson to set up office in Campbell River

People will be able to make a complaint in person with Ombudsperson staff as an Ombudsperson Office for the Day is set up in Campbell River on June 4. Nearly 7,500 inquiries and complaints were responded to and 1,900 early resolutions or investigations were completed last year by the B.C.’s Ombudsperson Office. “We serve the entire province, if people have not been successful in resolving their problems with the public agency and still feel they have not been treated fairly and reasonably, they can come to us,” says Ombudsperson Kim Carter. “While the majority of complaints are by telephone, mail or online, some people are more comfortable meeting face-to-face and I feel it’s important that this opportunity is available to people throughout the province.” B.C.’s Ombudsperson Office can investigate complaints about all provincial ministries and boards, Crown corporations, colleges and universities, schools and boards of education, health authorities, local governments and selfgoverning professions. Appointments need to be booked ahead of time by calling 1-800567-3247. While Ombudsperson staff meet with individuals, the Ombudsperson will speak privately to public agencies under her jurisdiction and with community groups. The role of t he Ombudsperson is to uphold the democratic principles of openness, transparency and accountability, to ensure that every person in B.C. is treated fairly in the provision of public services, and to promote

and foster fairness in public administration. The Ombudsperson does this by receiving and investigating individual complaints and conducting systemic investigations to consider issues from a broad perspective. Individual complaints resolved were varied last year. The Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation; the Ministry of Children and Family Development; the Ministry of Justice; WorkSafeBC and ICBC were the five most significant provincial public authorities dealt with during the year. Examples included: n Senior gets dental coverage after all from Pension Corporation n Family facing eviction doesn’t lose home following speedy action n Student continues with education after StudentAid BC reconsiders its appeal decision A number of complaints also resulted in improvements to program delivery including: n Ministry of Education refunds fee to 1,302 non practicing teachers following complaint to office n Vital Statistics Agency makes information more thorough and accessible for people   Recent systemic investigations include Time Matters which resulted in $350,000 in lost benefits paid to persons affected by government delays. Most recently, Striking a Balance made 25 recommendations of which 24 were accepted, aimed at improving gaps in how an environmental protection program was operating. The Office is currently investigating the regulations of private career training institutions.

Fishing Corner King of the pier

With three chinook salmon already caught at Discovery Pier, Jack Heemskerk is the earlyseason King of the Pier. In fact, the last time I looked at the catch-ofthe-day board, he was the only angler to land salmon from the pier this year! Jack isn’t saying what he’s using. He lives in the Lower Mainland and comes to Campbell River often to visit family, and expects to be back on the pier in July. That’s when real action begins on the pier, in June and July. Many tourists will come and fish the pier while local anglers spend countless hours in pursuit of the big one…as well as bragging rights. Winter springs are being

Ant hatch is on Local stocked lakes offer outstanding fishing as the bug hatch started a few days ago and will continue to improve. Randy Bolton – first time fly-fishing this year – caught trout and checked the stomach of the fish while cleaning them. The bellies contained ants, water beetles and snails. You can fish from shore if you don’t have a boat, canoe or pontoon boat. Worms will work and artificial baits will catch fish. Trolling with gang trolls and wedding bands is productive in deep water. For anglers who like to venture out of Campbell

caught at Bates Beach and Kitty Coleman and some good fishing is to be had on the south end of Denman Island and Deep Bay. Already nice catches of salmon are coming from the Hump, Shelter Point and the Lighthouse. Karen

River, try fishing Crest Lake just before Gold River. This is a catch-and-release lake and offers loads of fun if your trying the mountainside area. Bees will often fall in the water and this is prime food for the stocked trout. An hour south of Campbell River is Spider lake and the fish get up to four pounds! Fly fishing with a pumpkin head black leech is deadly. No bass fishing allowed at Spider. FISHING CALENDAR Perry Assu and Charlie Henderson Memorial Trout Derby Buttle Lake, June 7-8.

Quintin Miller

&).$Ă&#x2013;!Ă&#x2013; &2)%.$ 

Quintin Miller passed away May 1, 2014 in Victoria at the age of 36 years. Quintin is predeceased by his father Cary, his brother Wade and his infant son Jacob. He will be dearly missed & lovingly remembered by his mom & dad, Christine and Larry as well as his brothers Christopher, Casey and Corey. He also leaves to mourn his passing, four amazing women whom he loved and who loved him back, in their own special way. His daughter Camille, the hope of his tomorrow and the pride of his heart; Virginia whom he shared joy, hope, life and loss; Nicole with whom he shared the gift of parenthood and many years of treasured memories; and Lisa, the love of an unmarred future. Quintin will also be deeply missed by his closest cousin/sister Tiffany (Jamie) & Kaidence. He also leaves his grandparents, many aunts, uncles and friends. Quin was born in Campbell River, BC and was raised between Campbell River and Courtenay. He was a vivacious, fun loving guy who loved his family fiercely and would spend much of his free time planning ways to make their lives bright. His daughter was his world and that was evident in the placement of her needs before his own. He will certainly be remembered for his tongue washesâ&#x20AC;Śhis love of shock value and his hardworking nature. A special thanks to his employer, PCL in Saskatoon, who went above and beyond in assisting the family through this most difficult time. Their kindness and generosity will never be forgotten. There will be a service on Saturday, May 24th at 3:00 p.m. at Oyster Bay Resort. A Celebration of Life at a later date.

Robert Andrew Davison January 1, 1953 May 20, 2014

HERO: person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. Robert, known as Andy, was that exact definition to his family. His fight for his life was like no other. He battled cancer for seven long years and tried everything in his power to stay here on this earth with his high school sweetheart and partner for life, his wife Dawna Lee Davison. They had three wonderful children; Geoff his oldest son married Amery and gave him two beautiful grandchildren, Ashlyn and Aiden; Carrie his middle daughter married Travis Dashkewytch and gave him his three additional grandchildren, Carter, Kaylin and Gracie; Joni his youngest daughter, who makes him proud every single day and was widowed at a young age but gave him a son-in-law in Heaven to go fishing with, Lee Erricson. Andy immigrated to Canada from England when he was three, and then lived all over the provinces of BC and Alberta. He became a Fish and Wildlife Officer and served the province of Alberta well. He retired as a bear specialist and manager of his region. He was extremely skilled and his love for animals and the environment was like no other. He also did a six year stint as a Calgary Fire Fighter. Andy and Dawna retired in Campbell River in 2008, after falling in love with the community and the beautiful ocean. They sailed the waters here on the West Coast in their sailboat and the majestic, solemn coast seemed a peaceful place to spend the rest of their retired lives. They had many dreams of adventure that Dawna has promised to fulfill on their behalf. Dawna and Andy lived by the seat of their pants so this is why Andy did not want a conventional funeral. Dawna is opening up their home at 2717 South Alder on May 24, 2014 from 11:00 am until the last guest leaves. Please join Dawna and family at their open house and celebrate Andyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life with his family and friends. Andy was very passionate about helping young children and their families who are undergoing a health crisis with a child, and would like all donations and in lieu of any flowers to go to Camerynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cause. Donations can be sent to the following address: Camerynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cause for Kids Society #207-991 Alder St., Campbell River, BC, V9W 2R1
