Tsawout Seafood Festival returns Event will draw over 2,000 people to Tsawout First Nation on June 14 Devon MacKenzie News staff
After a two year hiatus due to budgetary constraints, the Tsawout First Nation’s popular Seafood Festival will be back June 14. The festival, started by Dan Claxton of Salish Strait Seafoods, draws people from all over Victoria and the Island and this year organizers are expecting more than 2,000 attendees. “We had about 2,000 people at our last festival so we’re expecting to top that this year,” said Tsawout Recreation Administrative Assistant Becky Wilson. Claxton spearheaded the festival about a half dozen years ago after he noticed a decline in the access to fresh seafood among local First Nations members. “Years ago I would deliver fresh seafood to our elders and I would notice time and time again that the younger people were asking about the various types of fish and shellfish because they didn’t know what they were,” he explained. “The festival is a way to reintroduce and reincorporate traditional foods and plants into our culture because many people aren’t in touch with this side of our culture.” Claxton said the festival will feature clams, prawns, crab, sea urchin, mussels, octopus and salmon — all locally sourced by Tsawout’s own fishermen or from other First Nations. “Things like salmon, prawns and crab we can fish here but things like clams and mussels we get from up island either by trading with other First Nations or private companies,” he said. The festival will also demonstrate traditional cooking methods like a pit cook and salmon cooking on an open fire. “The goal is to show people how important traditional food and knowledge is to

Request for Proposal Iroquois Park Concession Facility Lease Opportunity
MASTER OF COUNSELLING
The Town is seeking proposals for the operation of the Iroquois Park concession facility for the coming summer season, and possibly beyond. If you are a service club, not for profit organization, or private contractor, the Town is prepared to work cooperatively to enhance the amenities at this popular public park. We wish to see the concession facility being used, especially during the warmer months, to create vibrancy in the park and provide additional services to users.
With your Master of Counselling from CityU, you’ll be prepared to help others when they need it most. If you have a bachelor’s degree and want a career as a Registered Clinical Counsellor, CityU’s Master of Counselling program could be a great fit.
Iroquois Park, located at the south west corner of Fifth Street and Ocean Avenue, is an accessible, well used recreational facility with water spray park, playground, sports field, tennis courts and other playing surfaces. The concession facility includes change rooms, a concession room, meeting/activity room and public washrooms. The concession is not currently equipped with appliances. Enquiries to inspect the facility can be directed to Brian Robinson, Manager of Public Works & Parks: 250-655-5430. The Town is willing to consider a variety of proposals for both short (through this summer) and longer-term (up to 5 years) lease of the facility. Tell us what your ideas for the concession facility are, and we will endeavor to work with you.
Learn more at a Tuesday info session:
Proposals must be received at the Town Hall, located at 2440 Sidney Avenue, no later than 3:00 p.m. on Friday, June 20, 2014. Please address to the Attention: Director of Corporate Services.

Crime statistics from the RCMP in North Saanich show a slight decline in incidents requiring police, says Staff Sergeant Dennis O’Gorman. The detachment commander of the Sidney North Saanich RCMP presented his first quarter report to North Saanich council on May 26. Other than a small jump in fraud and property damage files, other crime in the community is down over the same time frame in 2013. Those numbers hold true for both North Saanich and the Town of Sidney. “We have had a few serious incidents, such as a bank robbery and some domestic disputes,” he said. “But there is no real trend or spike in the S/Sgt. Dennis numbers in much of anything. “Crime trends have been O’Gorman level this quarter over the quarter in 2013.” Panhandling same The detachment’s focus problems this year, O’Gorman continS/Sgt. ued, includes fraud prevenO’Gorman tion and education.

He said “I find we are really welldealing with served by the RCMP in this them is community,” said Councillor complicated. Ted Daly. Coun. Elsie McMurphy asked O’Gorman about the RCMP’s role in the regional crime unit of Greater Victoria which has seen member municipalities drop out, putting its future into question. “Sidney and North Saanich were the first municipalities to critically look at it,” O’Gorman said. “They looked at the number of files in this area and the effectiveness of the unit in this area. The decision was made some time ago to withdraw.” He added a fear over the loss of the unit is the potential for a gap in an investigation, such as in prolific offenders to cross local municipal boundaries. To address that, O’Gorman said the Town of Sidney agreed to get another officer faster than usual to help form a local, two-member prolific offender unit. Police statistics in 2014 have seen an increase in the number of traffic tickets issued. Drivers have received 597 tickets in the first three months of 2014 in North Saanich, compared with 464 in 2013. In Sidney, there were 586 tickets written, compared with 306 last year. O’Gorman reported traffic remains a big focus of the detachment. In one weekend earlier this year, he said officers wrote more than 100 tickets on local roads in Sidney and North Saanich. Those range from seat belt infractions to distracted driving. “Our officers write a lot of tickets. For a community this size, we write the most tickets between our two traffic officers.” Other areas of emphasis for the police include property theft, community relations, organized crime (drugs) and leadership development. Marinas are a focus, said O’Gorman, noting there has been an increase in incidents there. He said police are working with marina owners on educating their users and on implementing security plans. Crime stats in the area’s four First Nations communities are also down by six files overall. O’Gorman said the detachment is seeing a drop in reported crime and a decline in violent incidents. email@example.com

Task force ponders long-term goals Steven Heywood News staff
While the initial focus of Sidney’s task force on downtown revitalization has been on quick, easily-implemented ideas, Mayor Larry Cross says the members are exploring long-term plans as well. Cross, who struck the task force in April to address the threat of increased commercial competition outside of
Larry Cross the community, said the group has been powerful in its planning with an eye on the big
picture for Sidney. “We need to get good data,” Cross said, noting the task force will conduct market surveys this spring and early summer. That data will hopefully tell the task force what’s needed in the downtown and help guide future planning. Short-term plans out of the new task force include creating a new events calendar, refreshing street mark-
ings for a fresh look and encouraging store owners to better coordinate their open hours with local events. Long-term ideas include the potential for tax incentives from the Town and the proposed gateway project across the highway near the airport. These plans and more will be the subject of public input sessions in the near future, Cross said.
One of the greatest pleasures in life is dining well. The best part of my day? Dishing up a good meal.

A hand up, not the boot R
umblings behind the scenes about how to handle Sidney’s recent influx of panhandlers seem somewhat heartless. This spring, a few panhandlers have turned up on Beacon Avenue. These are not the usual buskers who perform for their meals. They are what might be considered homeless individuals who are looking for a handout or perhaps even a hand up. Instead, it appears local leaders are looking for ways to force them to move on. Staff Sergeant Dennis O’Gorman recently reported that the Town of Sidney is exploring ways — including bylaws — to address the matter. What that might be is anyone’s guess but judging by some of the recent letters to the editor on the issue, a lot of people want the panhandlers gone. To where, is a hard question to answer. O’Gorman says some of those individuals choose to be on the street. Others have drug or mental health issues. He said working with them and the rest of the community is complicated and must be done in a humane way. A bylaw — possibly to restrict their comings and goings — doesn’t seem very humane. And it would put the police into a position they should not be in — a situation better left to social welfare organizations. O’Gorman says a generous population contributes to keeping the panhandlers around. Does that have to be a bad thing? If enough people of that generous nature put their minds together, perhaps they could find solutions that give people an out from life on the street — not just the boot from one community to another. Reasons behind why some people panhandle on the streets of downtown Sidney and elsewhere can be complex. A knee-jerk reaction to situations that make us uncomfortable — and pushing them out of the community — is perhaps not the type of generosity the Saanich Peninsula wants to be known for.

that needs to be fixed? It’s a good question that the government did not adequately answer. And credit also goes to the new agriculture minister, Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, who inherited a public relations mess left by the brief and boneheaded performance of Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm. Braving the heckling at the end, Letnick put aside his partisan talking points and gave his personal assurance that the government’s intention is to support farming in those places where non-farm income is the only thing that keeps people on the land. As soon as the theatrics had died down, the B.C. NDP sent out a fundraising plea to its members to help “save” the ALR. The party is broke and desperate after losing its fourth straight election and it hopes to activate its declining donor base by portraying the changes as the imminent slaughter of its most sacred cow. Voters have three years before the next election to assess this situation. If there is a flood of exclusions of prime agricultural land, then the NDP will be able to make its case that its warnings were at least partially true. If this does not take place, then the government’s position will be vindicated. We’ll find out the truth.

Core values reflected here I
t was exciting to see the Parkland 40th anniversary celebrations unfold May 30 and carry on through the weekend. Working in the wings, it was very informative for me to see just how big a role our high school has played in shaping our little towns north of Victoria. People from every era and every persuasion were present and one couldn’t help but feel special — being a part of something bigger, not just a place of education but the base of the community. A high school forms the core values and beliefs of a community and it acts as a network where everyone has some common ground. In recent years, this bedrock of the Saanich Peninsula has been threatened by groups that have become dissatisfied with progress and opportunity. Insofar as their desire to prevent families from becoming a
part of our Parkland community they are guilty, as we need that housing growth to survive. With a strong economy which doesn’t require large families, it becomes difficult to keep schools open due to declining enrollment. While there are many other costs to consider, it is key that there be ‘bums in seats’ in the future such that Parkland, and to a larger extent the Saanich Peninsula, can stay open for business. As we are heading into a fall election, I would suggest to our municipal leaders that we find ways to make progressive, sustainable housing growth work so we can keep our community healthy with our favourite school.

Readers respond: Teacher job action Take a page on education from Scandinavia I agree with Eileen Nattrass’ comments (PNR May 28, 2014) regarding the teachers strike. When my children were growing up, attending elementary and high school in Quebec, there were no Teachers Unions, never a teachers strike and the teachers did a wonderful job without outside interference from government, parents or the media. I volunteer at the Sidney Elementary school with the sevenand-eight-year-olds

with the respect they deserve. I am also a retired nurse. It is shocking to me to see the way in which both teachers and nurses are being treated by this government. Two of the most important professions in our society — education and medical care — are certainly
not being given the respect or compensation they deserve. I recently heard a report about how Scandinavian countries put education at the top of their list of priorities. Maybe it is time our government took a page from those countries. Louise Worrall Sidney

Peninsula News Review readers have made their choice The 2014 Peninsula News Review’s Readers’ Choice Awards was notable for much this year but one thing really stands out: the ties. There were 16 ties among the 58 categories in the contest — from people’s favourite places to catch up with friends, to the friendliest firefighters on the Saanich Peninsula. That is the highest tally of ties in Readers’ Choice Awards recent history. It speaks to the high regard PNR readers have for the individuals, businesses and organizations in their communities. It certainly seemed like voters in this year’s contest had a hard time picking the best of the best — so they split the difference to recognize excellence all around. The enthusiasm showed by the more than 600 online and print entries in the 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards repeated itself on Tuesday, May 27 — the night of the awards presentation at The Muse Winery in North Saanich. More than 100 people turned out to the PNR-hosted event — one of the largest turnouts in memory, according to staff at the News Review. What’s more is that the people stayed longer to enjoy the celebration of business excellence — and to enjoy the appies served by Stonestreet Catering (a Readers’ Choice winner) and hospitality from The Muse (another winner this year). There were plenty of cheers for each of the top three finishers in each category, big smiles and many folks reported afterwards that they had a great time. For a complete list of the 2014 Readers’ Choice winners and profiles of some of this year’s finishers, go to www.vicnews.com and click on e-editions to find a digital copy of this year’s winners booklet.

Grand ‘rebirth’ of Peninsula Gallery New gallery owners hosting reception and show Saturday Devon MacKenzie News staff
Peninsula Gallery is celebrating new beginnings with their show Rebirth this weekend. The show, which will feature 60 new works in the gallery space at the corner of Beacon Avenue and Second Street, is in celebration of the recent sale of the business to new co-owners, Jonathan Jia and Vivian Chen. Jia and Chen bought the gallery, with other co-owner Ying Tang, a movie director and producer in Shanghai, from Larry and Gillian Hanlon in early spring. The two took over the business April 1. “We’ve felt so welcomed by the local residents and customers,” said Jia. “Everyone here is so warm and friendly and they even come in and say welcome to Sidney. It has been really nice.” Jia, who worked for many years as a tax partner with a major international accounting firm out of Beijing, has spent the last 20 years working between Victoria, Beijing and Calgary. Last year, after retiring from the accounting world and moving back to Victoria with his wife (Chen), the two heard about the Hanlons selling the gallery. “My wife and I love art so this has been the perfect change for

Peninsula Gallery’s new co-owner, Jonathan Jia is looking forward to welcoming artists and customers to the gallery’s grand “Rebirth” show on June 7. us,” Jia said, adding that it’s a nice change of pace. “Accounting can be pretty tiring after a while,” he laughed. The two say they chose the gallery for it’s top-notch collection of artists. “The gallery just has such a great artist base full of worldclass west coast artists,” said Jia. And even though the business is vastly different from accounting, Jia said there are some similarities. “It comes down to customer service and helping each and every customer find the right piece of art for their home. It’s the personal aspect that’s simi-
lar. People are letting you in to their lives and you’re helping them pick out something that will compliment their personal tastes. We get to deal with wonderful customers every day, that’s the beauty of it.” The Grand Rebirth Show is taking place June 7 to 29 with the gala happening on the evening of June 7. Jia said over 25 artists will be in attendance as well as the Hanlons. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,” he added.

Rhonda Brown courses, kayaking trips and other outings taken by her boys Zack Van Den Bussche, now 20, and younger brother Colton, now 16. Locally, Jumpstart provides $80,000 annually to thousands of kids across Greater Victoria. More than 9,300 kids have been helped since 2011. Across the country, 332 Jumpstart boards help 2,500 organizations discreetly identify youth who need a financial boost to cover sports expenses such as registration, equipment and transportation costs. “That’s the beauty of this model: we’re reaching the right kids with appropriate funding – like a pair of basketball shoes or a bus pass – that allows them to participate with dignity,” says Rhonda Brown, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Victoria and chair of the
Victoria chapter of the Jumpstart program. While the majority of local Jumpstart kids are in middle school, the program accepts applications from families with children as young as four. “Our goal is to really have the funding support as many kids as we can,” she says. It’s the difference between participating and not participating – there’s no halfway for many of these families.” Grants are allocated twice a year to a maximum of $300 per child with a focus on recreational sports. The concept is that recreational activities such as soccer, swimming or dance help kids gain life-long health benefits, confidence and social skills that come from being active at an early age. Staff at Greater Victoria rec centres also help identify kids in need, Brown says. “They helped me raise great kids,” Campbell said. “Being able to go and hang out with their friends, and do things I was not really able to afford for them to do, by myself.” National Jumpstart Day was May 31 across Canada. Call 1-877-6166600 to find a local Jumpstart chapter.
