‘Yes’ vote doesn’t mean full walkout by teachers SD62 schools picketed today Don Descoteau News staff

James Menke, a practitioner and instructor of Greenland kayaking, finishes up one of 35 different rolls that competitors will be tested on at next month’s National Greenland Kayaking Championships in that country. The Langford resident and a teammate will be Canada’s first-ever team entry into the traditional Inuit event.

Tradition key to competition Langford kayaking expert heading to Greenland for national championship Don Descoteau News staff

In the calm water of Langford Lake, which sits conveniently below his Goldstream Avenue home, James Manke runs through a

series of rolls in his kayak. A practitioner of the traditional Greenland kayaking style and a professional instructor in the discipline, Manke has spent the past few years honing his technique on each of 35 different rolls included on the list for competitors in the sport. Why the need for so many different types of rolls, one might ask? “As a hunter, if you went in the water, you were dead,” he said, referring to the frigid sea temperature that even in summer hovers

a couple of degrees above freezing. The ability to escape potentially deadly situations when out on the lonely sea was critical for hunters whose primary task was to bring back food for their families to last through winter, Manke said. “Because these traditional hunters went out alone, their survival depended on it,” he said.

As members of the Sooke Teachers Association picket schools in the Sooke district today, work continues on attempting to forge a deal between B.C. teachers and the province. On Monday, Sooke Teachers Association president Ian Johnston pointed out that a yes mandate from the B.C. Teachers’ Federation membership does not necessarily mean a full-scale walkout is imminent. “A strong ‘yes’ vote does not mean the BCTF would automatically go to a full withdrawal of services,” he said. “We have no interest in going out. I don’t think it’s good for students and it’s not good for parents.” While Sooke School District teachers wound up their voting on Monday – most voted in the advance poll held Friday, when the SD62 was off on a rotating strike –  the provincial strike vote was scheduled to be completed yesterday, after the Gazette deadline. Johnston said the strike vote was held mainly to increase the pressure on the government in negotiations. “It’s more the signal it sends to government; how strong is our resolve. That’s really what it’s all about,” he said. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Juan de Fuca MLA and new B.C. NDP leader John Horgan stands outside his new office in the B.C. legislature. He’s enjoyed the transition from backbench MLA to Official Opposition Leader. Most of my friends consider me to have a sense of humour. Seeing the absurd in life gives me joy. I try really hard to continue to have fun.” He mentioned Dave Barrett’s wife, Shirley, whom he talked to before he announced he would try for the leadership. “”What would Dave say?” Horgan asked her. “She said, ‘keep smiling at ’em Horgan, cause it drives the bast**ds crazy.’” When asked what he would do about the teachers’ strike, he said one word: bargain. “Teachers want to bargain some things locally, some things provincially,” he said. SD 62 is one of the few school districts with a growing population and they need more teachers, not less, as is the case in 70 per cent of other districts in B.C., he said. The same is true for Fort St. John, which Horgan says is “on fire.” “One size doesn’t fit all… the government is provoking a fight and that is very short sighted. The teachers made their case in court twice, and the government has not bargained in good faith. To say they are going to cut wages by 10 per cent, why are

they doing that? For teachers not to monitor recess is unfortunate but it’s not devastating.” He said for the government to lock teachers out at grad time was wrong as graduates only get to do it once. Horgan felt escalating strikes at the end of the year is unnecessary, they could have negotiated a collective agreement over the summer. He said there is a level of frustration coming from parents. Many kids from 2002 on have seen only labour unrest in their school years. Horgan readily admits that the biggest issue for the NDP is earning back the trust of the voters. “From Hope to the Yukon border, that’s where I’m going to spend most of my time. I can go to a boardroom or lunchroom and speak that language with authority. I’ve been a mill worker, negotiated significant deals in government, I know how to get benefit for my clients when I was in business or in government. I can talk to business and industry, that was one of the reasons why young caucus members came to me. They said, ‘you understand government, business and

It’s hard to do.

Grand prize winner chosen from more than 80 entries Arnold Lim News staff

And the winner is, Jasmine Lowey. The I Love Colwood Selfie Contest has its grand prize winner. Lowey’s windswept hair and quaint smile, with the Fisgard Lighthouse National Historic Site in the background, was judged best among all entries and secured her an iPad. “The I Love Colwood Selfie Contest was a fun way to show off our beautiful natural surroundings and the strong sense of community we enjoy here in Colwood,” said Mayor Carol Hamilton in an email. “It was a great success, with thousands of votes on (the) images that were submitted. And we now have all those gorgeous smiling faces on display along the hallway at City Hall.” University of Victoria graduate Lowey’s self portrait or “selfie,” accompanied by the words “Exploring the Fisgard lighthouse on a windy day,” beat out 81 other candidates featuring more than a dozen locations across Colwood from the Hatley Memorial Gardens, the Esquimalt Lagoon, Hatley Castle and a number of other parks across the municipality. Five weekly winners won $20 gift cards for a variety of local businesses. The grand prize winner was selected from a group of 15 entries by Hamilton and Colwood’s chief administrative officer James Moller. The rules stated the photographs had to be taken in Colwood, be a selfie with one or more faces and convey a positive energy and make you smile. alim@vicnews.com

Residents want answers on Goldstream Ave. parking lot Former PCC land sold by Langford to developer may be home to fewer public spaces for lake users Arnold Lim News staff

Residents living near a Goldstream Avenue parking lot used by Langford Lake patrons hope redevelopment of the area won’t compromise safety on the roadway. The gravel lot, currently provided for visitors using the beachfront access to the northeast side of the lake across the street, was purchased from the City of Langford by a developer who has agreed to retain some public parking. “This is already a narrow road where someone has died because they were hit by a car,” said Wendy MacDonald, who lives on Shelby Place, adjacent to the entrance to the beach access. “The sunlight comes

“We need to know what it going on, what the plan is for this particular piece of property.” – Wendy MacDonald, Langford resident in and blinds them. This could make (the area) a whole lot more dangerous if this is not a parking lot. We need answers.” Earlier this year, Langford resident Meesha-Chan Grubisic was struck by a vehicle along the 1100-block of Goldstream Ave., not far from the parking lot. Langford director of planning Matthew Baldwin said the developer who bought the property has promised to have some parking remain in the area and city staff are currently working out

the details. Just how many spots might be available for the public is still up in the air. The property, which extends from the Trans Canada Highway down to Goldstream Avenue and was formerly owned by the Provincial Capital Commission, has been rezoned from a residential lot to permit a range of business and technology commercial uses, including a technology park. “According to the information that was given at the city hall meeting May 20, this is going to be used as a utilities corridor,” said Greg Craven who lives next to the lot. “No specifics were given in respect to what type of utilities, whether they were sewer, water, hydro, drainage or access to this new development.

OUR VIEW

Camping season is upon us now Can there be anything more Canadian than camping? Getting out into the great outdoors, setting up camp and enjoying the solitude just seems like a long thread in the fabric of our culture. It’s a pastime many people grew up with. Families did it together and often the kids were enrolled in either Boy Scouts or Girl Guides, where camping skills were routinely taught and practised. The enjoyment of the outdoors, and how you can survive comfortably in it, has been passed down from generation to generation. That’s why it seems a little sad that National Parks staff run programs to teach people how to do it. It’s a little sad, but not all that surprising. More and more people are filling Canadian cities and to a certain degree, going camping might not have the same appeal as it once had. It’s not necessarily an urban-versus-rural issue — either you enjoy camping, or you don’t. On the West Shore, we have a tailor-made situation at Goldstream Provincial Park for people who want to give camping a try, but not venture far from home. The facilities are quite civilized, with flush toilets, an outdoor theatre to take in park programs and now, a skookum playground where kids big or small can let off some of that steam from a busy week at work or school. Taking in nature from afar deprives a person of a closer connection with the outdoors and the opportunity to decompress and disconnect from the world for a short time. There can be nothing more rewarding to be out of cell range and left to your own skills and know-how to survive in the wild — even if that wild is a groomed provincial campsite that you can drive into. It’s true that for some people, disconnection from the world leaves them feeling nervous, vulnerable or simply cut off from their community. That distance can be enough to discourage some from taking the step into the great outdoors. But like many things that are unfamiliar, they just need to be practised. Soon, packing up for a camping trip will become, if not second nature, then at least less of a burden, with thoughts of the relaxation ahead motivating and inspiring you. It’s far better to accept that some people don’t have outdoor skills and need those lessons to improve their outlook when they decide the time is right to go camping. And for many Canadians, as soon as the weather turns nice, that time is right now.

LETTERS Sewage treatment model flawed Re: Public opinion wins on sewage (Our View, May 30) Four years ago the Capital Regional District asked the public which procurement method they preferred and in response well over 90 per cent selected the traditional “Design-BidBuild” model. Having asked the public what they wanted, the CRD proceeded to do the opposite. They split the plant into two so they could build the biosolids component as a P3 (design-buildoperate) and use the “Design-Build” procurement method for the sewage plant. I found it really unusual when Seaterra announced it had selected a “site specific” design and a builder for the sewage plant when they didn’t have an approved site. But then I read they had selected a consortium that included the

same multinational that was responsible for the new Halifax Wastewater Treatment Plant. That plant lasted less than a year before having a catastrophic failure. In just 20 minutes it was flooded to a depth of over 60 feet, resulting in $11 million in damage and putting it out of service for a year and a half. The postmortem revealed many

problems relating to its design and its lack of “fail-safe systems.” The P3 and DesignBuild models are more prone to this type of outcome. We are also now seeing a number of municipalities that had bought into the P3 idea, realizing it was not the best choice after all. Port Hardy cancelled a 20-year operating contract for its wastewater

plant after 10 years and hired all the contractor’s staff. Now that the pause button has been pressed, let us also hit the reset button and give serious consideration to proposals like the RITE Plan.

If there’s one thing David Black embodies, it’s organization. The owner of Black Press –  which publishes the Gazette and dozens more newspapers in B.C. and North America – wasn’t about to offer some off-the-cuff remarks to graduates and officials gathered for this morning’s (June 11) convocation ceremony at the University of Victoria. In accepting an honourary Doctor of Laws degree, the modest newspaperman will read from a prepared speech, despite the fact he’s only got five minutes to offer his pearls of wisdom. As he does with any project he’s embarked upon over the years, he takes it very seriously. “It’s pretty special to be honoured from a university like this,” he said from his home office in Oak Bay. “They’ve had a lot of growth since I’ve been in Victoria.” While he admitted to being a “little bit embarrassed” to receive the honour –  former Royal B.C. Museum CEO Pauline Rafferty received her honourary Doctor of Laws on Monday – he feels pride at being a part of the growth at UVic. Having based his growing newspaper group in Greater Victoria in the late 1980s, Black was among a group of leaders from the local business and academic communities who brainstormed the makeup and focus of UVic’s school of business in the mid2000s. “I was lucky enough to be

involved from the very beginning,” he said, adding that many good ideas were tossed around in the initial stages of the program’s development. Such aspects as mentorship, student entrepreneurship and international exposure to outside industry were brought forward as the educational strategy for the school was taking shape. “Those are still keys to the program and have been Don Denton/News staff since the beginning,” he Black Press owner David Black said. “It’s been fun watch- poses for a portrait in his office. ing (the business program), Black will be presented with an mostly from a distance.” honorary degree from UVic today. The Black Press schol“Over the many years, the uniarship program, which awards $5,000 to one student in versity and the RBCM had a very each of B.C.’s 37 school districts close partnership and I think for enrolment into UVic’s Peter that continues today, on many B.

In her early days at the ness (so named in 2010), was an effort to develop young entre- museum, a few years after it preneurs throughout B.C. as a hosted the hugely successful way to strengthen the province’s Leonardo da Vinci exhibit in 1999, UVic inquired into createconomy. Rafferty, who guided the ing a cultural tourism program museum from 2001 until retir- that would draw on the strateing in 2012, called the honou- gies used for that undertaking. Rafferty believes the program rary doctorate a great and “very created through the co-operhumbling” honour.

Icy-cold waters present a challenge Continued from Page A1

“They’re hunting who knows what – it could be a seal or it might be a narwhal, which is a big animal that could drag you a long way.” In North America, Manke is one of relatively few experts in the kayaking style. Last winter he became the first person to kayak the length of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, Greenland style – using the trademark skinny paddles and low-to-thewater kayak. When he teaches Greenland kayaking at home and elsewhere, he not only instructs people on technique and safety, he gives his students background on the Inuit traditions. “When I got into this, it inspired me to want to learn more and more about it,” he said. “There was no one around teaching this, so I would find videos of the Inuit doing this kind of stuff, videoing myself and comparing them. “When I started to teach people, at first I taught them the basic technique of rowing. Later I started sharing the culture of

James Menke of Langford, a practitioner and instructor of Greenland kayaking, eyes up one of the long, narrow paddles that are a key part of this traditional style of kayaking. rowing and sharing that passion. Now I see other people get excited about it.” Manke, a former avid dirt biker who took up kayaking a few years ago as a way to face his fear of the water, appreciates being able to help preserve this part of the heritage of the Inuit people in Greenland. For Greenlantian organization

Qaannat Kattuffiat, that preservation is their main focus and the reason they initiated the National Greenland Kayaking Championships. Manke and friend James Roberts, who lives in southern Ontario, fly to Greenland in early July to compete in the 2014 championships in the waters off Qaqortoq, on the southern tip of

the island. While other Canadians have competed as individuals in past, Manke and Roberts will compete as the first-ever Team Canada in the event. All of those entered tackle the various rolls, spear throwing and other challenges while seated in the tight confines of an ocean kayak. The Canadians will compete in handmade skin-on-frame kayaks manufactured specifically for the event. The plan is to turn them over to the local group to help promote Greenland kayaking among young people there, Manke said. Hunting from kayaks has traditionally been the realm of the most brave souls in the towns that dot the south Greenland coast. “In Greenland there’s a huge fear of the water because of the cold temperature and the frigid waters,” Manke said. As part of the experience, Manke and Roberts are making a documentary film of the trip and the competition. They’re fundraising to help defray the cost of the documentary and travel to the event, mainly through their website (greenland. qajaq.ca). The duo are more than halfway to their goal of $15,000 with a few weeks to go. In the meantime, Manke continues to practise his rolls in the quiet of Langford Lake – it’s a kind of meditation, he said –  and at the pool at Pearson College in Metchosin. “I’m good on 33 (of the 35), but I’m still working on my strait jacket roll and behindthe-back sculling. I’m working on my flexibility.” Neither his lake or pool time will quite prepare him for the icy cold waters of Greenland, so he and Roberts plan to arrive a few days early to acclimatize themselves. “As soon as you get into that water you start to seize up,” he said. All the more reason to be up to par on his rolls. editor@goldstream gazette.com

Copies of original Douglas treaties to be gifted to First Nations affected Museum brings First Nations into heritage discussions

Royal B.C. Museum CEO Prof. Jack Lohman, left, welcomes Esquimalt Nation Chief Andy Thomas and UNESCO representative JeanPierre Blackburn at the opening reception to the UNESCO annual general meeting at the museum June 5.

Daniel Palmer News staff

Esquimalt and Songhees Nations are receiving official replicas of the Douglas Treaties as the Royal B.C. Museum awaits word on the documents’ world heritage status from UNESCO. The 1850s land deal documents are being made more accessible after “entire generations” of First Nations have gone without seeing the oncesecretive treaties, said Jack Lohman, CEO. “It’s such an important part of the heritage of First Nations, and it’s part of our commitment to share our treasures with everybody,” Lohman said. “And this way, both nations have a part of their own heritage.” The Douglas treaties were signed in the 1850s and remained the only written agreements with aboriginal people in B.C. until the Nisga’a treaty in 2000. The 14 land title documents were held up by the Supreme Court of Canada as a basis to protect aboriginal rights, and they continue to fuel First Nations lawsuits and land settlements between the province and Canada. Songhees Chief Ron Sam said he recognizes the treaties are part of his nation’s history, and he felt it was important to stand with the museum in acknowledging their significance. “A lot of people forget we did sign treaties here,” Sam said. “There is some back and forth over whether we honour them or want to forget about them. We’re in court right now battling over one of our Douglas treaties, but it is important for us to acknowledge them.” The Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations filed separate lawsuits covering 376 acres in Saanich’s Cadboro Bay in 2012, a matter still before the courts. The latest announcement coincides with UNESCO’s annual general meeting, held in Victoria for the first time last week. UNESCO officials met with Sam and Esquimalt Chief Andy Thomas, and the original Douglas Treaties were brought from the B.C. Archives to the Songhees Wellness Centre during a community dinner last Friday. “I believe that’s the first time they’ve ever left the building,” Lohman said. Sam said the community dinner provided a chance for UNESCO officials to learn about Songhees Nation traditions and aspirations with their new conference centre on 1100 Admirals Rd. Lohman said he’s still awaiting word on whether the Douglas Treaties will receive world heritage status from UNESCO’s Memory of the World committee in France. “We have such great diversity of living heritage here through First Nations living languages,” he said. “My sense is that B.C. should and must lead Canada in a new recognition of intangible cultural heritage.” dpalmer@vicnews.com

Floaters

Little black spots, bugs and spider webs, … Optometrists hear these descriptions of floaters on a daily basis. What are floaters? The majority of the eyeball is filled with a jellylike substance known as vitreous. The vitreous is surrounded by the retina, the thin layer of the eye which contains the light receptor cells. The retina is like the film of a camera and is essential for sight. The vitreous is attached to the retina at a number of points within the eye. As we age the vitreous tends to condense, shrink and become less transparent. Little globs of dense gel floating around cast small shadows on the back of the eye. Those shadows are what we perceive as floaters. Over time all of us will have some of these floaters. However, not all floaters are this innocent. As the vitreous shrinks it tugs at the retina. This tugging can occasionally tear the retina and subsequently cause a retinal detachment. When a detachment occurs, vision can only be saved by prompt medical intervention to repair and reattach the retina. If you experience a sudden onset of new floaters, flashes of light, a shadow or curtain in your vision, or a sudden decrease in your vision, seek advice immediately. Don’t wait a few days to see if the symptoms decrease. If the shadow or curtain occurs on a weekend, go to Emergency. Retinal detachment is painless but serious. Your optometrist can help distinguish between normal vitreous changes and situations which require immediate referral to a medical specialist. Routine eye examinations are a great way to maintain good eye health.

Anti-graffiti paint tested on Lagoon loos Last week the City of Colwood undertook a pilot project at Esquimalt Lagoon aimed at reducing graffiti. Crews painted the public washroom facilities in the area with a special type of anti-graffiti coating they hope will make maintenance of the building easier.

The washrooms are a frequent target for vandals and the City has to spend time and money removing the tagging. The pilot will see staff monitor the situation in the coming months and will help determine whether the solution will save the City on maintenance costs. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Belmont secondary students recently gathered names on a petition calling for a ban on candy and fruit-flavoured tobacco products in B.C. The event was held in conjunction with World No Tobacco Day and mirrors a similar campaign by the Canadian Cancer Society’s B.C. division.

Students rally against flavoured tobacco Students at Belmont secondary concerned about the use of flavoured tobacco by youth have gathered more than 500 names on a petition calling for a ban on the products in B.C. Recently they held an awareness event at the school, tying it in with World No Tobacco Day. The campaign was also held in conjunction with a similar one undertaken by the B.C. and Yukon Division of the Canadian Cancer Society, which is lobbying the province to have the products removed from store shelves. “We feel that this is an important cause because cancer affects everyone and everyone deserves the right to know when they are being targeted,” said student Jonathan Grandfield, one of the petition organizers. “Awareness is huge, especially when it is something as preventable as tobacco-caused cancer.” The most recent national youth smoking survey found that of those high school students who reported using a tobacco product in the previous 30 days – about 20 per cent of those polled – slightly more than half said they had used flavoured tobacco products. Tobacco flavoured with everything from fruits and chocolate to mint, is more appealing to some smokers. The Cancer Society says young people stand more chance of becoming addicted to tobacco using such products. Specifically, certain
