Mountain biker embraces road cycle for Tour de Rock Cops for CanCer: Beer and burger fundraiser this coming Monday Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR
eet Const. Kyle Ushock, a member of the Campbell River RCMP, and one of the riders in this year’s Cops For Cancer Tour de Rock. Age: 30 How many years as a Mountie: 7 Postings: Bella Bella, Ucluelet, Campbell River. First bicycle: “I believe it was a blue Kuhara BMX that I had back in my Winnipeg days.” What are the challenges of being involved in Tour de Rock: “The big challenge is the time commitment. We train three times a week. We do our big ride on Sundays. Last Sunday (June 1) we did 101 kilometres from Comox to Campbell River and back to Comox. And, of course, we never seem to get the beautiful weather! It was wind and hail when we rode up Mt. Washington.” Longest ride before training for the Tour: “I did about 50 kilometres through the Snowden trails on the mountain bike with a bunch of guys from work.” Favourite type of bike: “It’s circumstantial, I guess. For me, it’s the mountain bike, but now that I’m riding back and forth to work every day, it’s definitely the road bike. The other one is a tank…[laughs] I secretly think the two bikes have it out in the garage when I’m not home.”
Are you riding for someone: “Last year I lost my grandmother to cancer. She died on the day the ride came to Campbell River. Some coworkers have also died of cancer. It all worked out for me to do the ride this year. It all aligned.” What are you looking forward to on the Tour: I’m really looking forward to being at Reynolds School in Victoria where we did the launch. It’s an unbelievable event. I’m also looking forward to coming through Campbell River. It’s really nice to have the community support. I’m looking forward to that.” What are you not looking forward to: “The wind and the rain which we always seem to get in December. One time I remember driving up Island, on my way to Bella Bella, and thinking, ‘Who would want to ride in this?’ Now it’s going to be me!”
Barring a contract settlement this weekend, today could be the last day of school for some time unless the province and teachers reach an agreement. Campbell River students were off again on Thursday as part of rotating strike action around the province and returned to class today. However, this week, B.C.’s 41,000 teachers voted 86 per cent in favour of a full-scale strike which will begin Tuesday. The full-scale school strike would begin Tuesday, but there isn’t expected to be any classes on Monday either as members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation plan to hold a study session day with their union representatives. On Thursday, B.C. Education Minister Peter Fassbender told reporters the government will continue negotiations with teachers this weekend in the hope of reaching an agreement or temporary settlement.
Support the ride You can meet Const. Ushock and help support the 2014 Tour de Rock this coming Monday at the Riptide Marine Pub. The pub, at Discovery Harbour Mall, is hosting a beer and burger night. Doors open at 6 p.m. and tickets are $20 available at the RCMP detachment and the Riptide Pub. Since 1998, Tour de Rock has raised almost $20 million to support pediatric cancer research and programs for children through the Canadian Cancer Society.

The MV Tenaka was called in to rescue a boat Wednesday. The Tenaka is the BC Ferry that sails between Quadra Island and Cortes Island. Shortly after 3 p.m., the Coast Guard called the captain on the Tenaka and requested their assistance with a 24 foot vessel in distress near Viner Point on Read Island. The vessel’s engine was reported to be overheating and the two passengers were afraid they were going to go on the rocks near Viner Point. The ferry launched a zodiac rescue boat and towed the pleasure craft

A tale of two hospices
Campbell RiveR miRRoR
In the Comox Valley the province happily hands over $250,000 for four new end-of-life beds at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Meanwhile, in Campbell River, the local hospice society awaits a reply from the premier to follow-up on a promise made last year. “Comox Valley Hospice gets their beds, there’s talk of beds for Parksville and Campbell River seems to get ignored by Victoria,” said Valery Puetz, chair of the Campbell River Hospice Society. On May 22, the society sent a letter to Premier Christy Clark enquiring about a proposal that would include three new end-of-life beds for Campbell River. Last November, Island Health announced it would issue a request for proposals in early 2014, seeking an owneroperator to provide 40 care beds in the city. The
NATURAL GAS FURNACES 1x2
Just Gas 1,000#1 REBATE
home was supposed to include 31-33 beds for residents who require complex care, 4-6 longstay rehab beds and the three end-of-life beds. On May 5, Island Health issued the request for a new 40-bed care home to be built by 2017, but there’s no mention of three end-of-life (EOL) beds, noted Puetz, just 20 complex care beds and another 20 for people with dementia. “What is of concern… is the apparent lost of the three EOL beds which were promised and which are much needed,” wrote Puetz. “Our society would also like to know where the 4-6 long-stay rehabilitation beds are?” Ideally, local hospice directors would rather
have their own home to care for dying patients, but Puetz said Island Health wants end-of-life beds in facilities under contract by the provincial board. Hospice directors were told the three end-of-life beds would first go into Yucalta Lodge and then moved to a new facility before 2017. Evergreen S eniors Home is c ur rent ly expanding and Puetz said the owners are interested in including hospice palliative suites. However, the request for proposals doesn’t include the end-of-life beds, therefore no pubic funding. If privately-run care homes, under contract to Island Health, do want to
include palliative suites, the cost is picked up by the dying and their families, and Puetz said that isn’t fair. “This creates a system in which those who can afford the cost of a private EOL bed will have access to it, whereas those who are unable to do so will be denied access,” she wrote on behalf the society. The letter asks the premier to respond by June 18, and so far there has not been a reply. On May 30, Comox Valley and Liberal MLA Don McRae, joined with that community’s hospice volunteers to announce the $250,000 provincial grant for four end-of-life beds at St. Joesph’s Hospital in Comox.

Coal drilling proposal makes residents nervous
Tests could begin next summer if approved
others who believe Hillsborough intends to begin test drilling this summer. But that’s not the case, said Gary Gould, vicepresident of Hillsborough which operates the Quinsam Coal mine located approximately 20 kilometres west of Campbell River. “We still need to consult with local communities and First Nations,” Gould said Thursday. “It would be a phased exploration and next summer would be the earliest time we would begin.” For now, Hillsborough has filed a “notice of work” application with the provincial mining ministry and expects to receive a permit to conduct test drilling in the two areas, located 5-8 kilometres southeast of the current mine site. Gould said the initial phase would be five to six drill holes, along and nearby existing logging roads. When the tests are concluded, the holes are filled with concrete and the area is reclaimed.
Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR
Hillsborough Resources wants to look for more coal and that’s causing concern for some residents living along the Oyster River watershed. “The area where the test sites are proposed is uphill from the Oyster River and adjacent to Woodhus Creek which flows into the Oyster,” wrote Father Charles Brandt in a letter to the senior inspector of mines. “There is a great deal of water flowing downhill from this area into the Oyster River and private wells through visible streams and underground sources.” The form letter is being signed and circulated by
“We regard it as zero impact,” said Gould. Hillsborough will be looking for high-quality thermal coal. It will conduct a geo-chemical assessment of the rock and coal, and will monitor water run-off and quality. Residents living along the Oyster River watershed, and who rely on well water, are concerned because the test areas are adjacent to the same areas where coal tests were conducted in the 1980s. According to the letter from Brandt, “In 1985, Nuspar Resources application to mine this same area was refused after a test pit showed unacceptable levels of acid runoff.” The octogenarian has been a tireless supporter for sound environmental management of the Oyster and Tsolum river systems. In his letter, he also pointed out that in June 2013, the Comox Valley Regional District wrote to the Ministry of Energy, Mines and

work by individuals, organizations and the government, this river and creek are so healthy,” wrote Brandt. “The numbers of salmon spawning last August and September were living proof that this is so. Must we consider putting it all into jeopardy again when we already know what happened in the past?”

Low prices and weak demand for thermal coal led to the second round of layoffs at the Quinsam Mine this year. Gould said the current production is for 150,000 tonnes this year, just onethird of what the mine was producing three years ago. “We really hope that prices pick up,” he said.

Teachers and government: make a deal, soon With little time left to get a deal done and put the current teachers’ job action to rest before the end of June, we can expect more of everything now 72 hours strike notice has been We say: It’s time that served by the BC Teachers Federation. labour dispute B.C. teachers are expected to go on comes to an end a full-scale strike as of Tuesday morning. As of Wednesday, a fresh arsenal of rhetoric is ready to be unleashed on the public as both sides will make the most of every opportunity to discredit the position
and tactics of the other. Watching from the middle of the labour battleground are the thousands of students who would far rather be thinking about their futures and how big a role education plays. Parents and guardians are naturally directly involved and rightfully concerned...but so should everyone, to some degree, be. The health and effectiveness of our education system, and the climate in which it’s run have a huge impact on our economic and social future.
As we struggle with continual labour management strife, not just between teachers and their employers, our economic competitors in other countries and provinces move ahead with the pedal to the metal. Our educational system may not be the best in the world but it’s crucial that it keeps operating while improvements are considered and implemented. There may be worse times of year for a teachers strike, but there is never a good time for one. The best time for a negotiated settlement to the current impasse...without question, is soon.
Broom removal ‘unacceptable’ As there seems to be a vendetta against the proliferation of the non-native Broom plant, I’m somewhat surprised to find on my walks, especially the trail on Jubilee Parkway, that where this plant has been hacked down, the bushes are then just dumped and left. The reason given for getting rid of this plant is because it prevents the native species from growing as the Broom spreads and chokes other plants out of existence. So is it not counter productive to dump this stuff on top of the plants that are growing in the ditches and along the hedgerow? Last year’s dumped bushes are still there and nothing can grow where they are piled up all along the trail. Apart from anything else, these black piles are unsightly and personally, I would prefer that the things are left alone if whoever chops them down can’t then be bothered to take the bushes away. I don’t care if it’s city workers or the Greenways Trust who leave this waste behind, the fact is these piles of dead and dying bushes must be disposed of in the proper way, doing half the job is unacceptable.

Red-headed urchins eat the crumbs of city’s cake WARNING: This column may be offensive to some red-headed stepchildren, not that it is intended to be offensive to the “gingers” of this world as the writer has family members who are, indeed, red-headed. – The Lawyers
Paul Rudan No, really
Our city has its “red-headed stepchildren.” You know, the areas that have been abused for years, neglected and most often ignored for reasons long forgotten. In a beautiful city such as ours, coming across these overlooked places is like finding gravel in the middle of your ice cream. Campbellton, of course, takes first prize – or was that last place? – in the redheaded stepchild contest. This Heinz 57 concoction of heavy
industry, commercial, mixed retail and the community’s oldest residential neighbourhood has been made to stand in a dark corner for years, shunned by its socalled caretaker guardians who rule from the city hall highlands. Slowly, over the past decade, after a lot of yelling and screaming – something to the effect of, “This isn’t fair!” – the highlander chieftains have lent an ear and the occasional hand to the lowly red-headed stepchildren. Kind of like watching poor little Oliver begging for more gruel! For the most part, Campbellton gets gruel and the occasional crumb, while a lot of other areas – the Golden Children – get to eat cake on a regular schedule. Yes, that would be YOU Willow Point. Don’t try to deny it, that Golden Child
face and fingers are covered in frosting! From the exquisitely trimmed fields of Willow Point Park to the seemingly weedless gardens along the promenade, it is unquestionably, the pride and joy of the city hall Highlanders. The other new favourite is downtown. In the past, there’s always been a kind of love-hate relationship between downtown and city hall, but the love-in is clearly underway. This new Golden Child is showered with tax breaks and willing servants who make sure the dirty parts are regularly scrubbed and cleaned, lest our new tower of glass reflects the old scars and warts. In a way, I understand the dilemma of the overlords who, really, have a bunch of great-looking “kids,” who have all been playing in the mudflats for too long. It
takes time to wash away the grime and get them all spiffy again, but some receive all the attention while the others get spit. “Well, at least you get spit!” is the complaint I hear now from the city’s latest red-headed stepchild, that being the south end of Dogwood Street. The intersection at Jubilee is becoming an overgrown eyesore even though it’s “liberally decorated” with cigarette butts, weeds growing through concrete and pretty shards of broken glass from accidents past. Even the new water system – for the new trees which replace the first ones that died – never seems to work right and have busted at least twice this spring! But such is the life of the red-headed stepchild who’s lucky to gets the scraps of their siblings’ fine fare.

Last chance for Area D referendum consultation KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Area D residents will have one last chance to talk to the city and gather information before casting their vote on whether or not to join the city of Campbell River. The city is hosting a pre-referendum open house on June 16 at Ocean Grove Elementary to provide information on the final proposal and referendum for the city’s boundary extension and sewer service offer for northern Area D.
The city is offering to provide sewer service to 535 Area D properties south of the city limit to McGimpsey Road, on the condition those residents agree to become a part of Campbell River. Residents within the proposed boundary extension area will vote in a referendum Saturday, June 28. Advance polls are scheduled for June 18 and June 24. The city has announced that the referendum question, with a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ option, will read: “Are you in favour
of a boundary extension to include a portion of Electoral Area D within the boundaries of the City of Campbell River for the purpose of connecting to the City of Campbell River sanitary sewer service?” City Elections Officer Lynn Ketch will oversee the referendum and is expected to be in attendance at next week’s open house to field questions relating to the voting process. Meanwhile, council has approved using the Alternate Approval Process to get support from Campbell River
residents. Coun. Larry Samson said it will be cheaper than the alternative. “ The Alternate Approval Process costs the city, I’ll say minimal or nil dollars, whereas the alternative to this is a referendum for city taxpayers which would put the cost to the city at around $60,000,” said Samson who added he was reluctant to support the boundary extension. “I’d like to get this over and done with.” Mayor Walter Jakeway, who believes the Alternate Approval Process to be undemocratic
and is against the Area D expansion proposal, was the only one on council to oppose moving forward with the voting process. The Alternate Approval method will allow council to proceed with the boundary extension unless more than 10 per cent of the city’s electors (which is 2,401) object by signing an elector response form and submit it to city hall. The process is expected to begin near the end of June and electors will have until July 21 at 4 p.m. to

There would also be a third cost for property owners – to connect their home to the sewer line. In the meantime, the city says it will be distributing a newsletter in the proposed boundary extension area to answer frequently asked questions and to provide information about the open house, referendum question, chief elections officer and voting details. The op en hous e takes place on Monday between 5 and 8 p.m. at Ocean Grove school (3773 McLelan Road).

object. If the boundary extension does go ahead, Campbell River taxpayers will be charged an extra $24 a year in user fees for 20 years – the amount of time it’s expected to take to pay off the $3.9 million project debt. Area D residents would be expected to pay $9,300 – either in one lump sum or over the course of 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.

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. 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 www.campbellriver.ca 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 (www.campbellriver.ca). 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
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. 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. The Property Tax Deferment Program is a loan program 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 www.sbr.gov.bc.ca (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.

Spreading the mesage: education is power Greta Hamilton CARIhI MIRROR
This year was a big one for Education Is Power creator Dave Cuddy. He traveled to Africa, hosted some local fundraisers, and worked with students from Phoenix middle school, as well as both local high schools. Education is Power is a Canadian (EIP) charitable organization that sponsors 35 students attending high school and university in Kenya and Tanzania. With next to no administrative costs, Cuddy runs the organization with a few volunteers. This year EIP worked in conjunction with
local youth to help raise awareness for their cause student for student. “Our main hope is that this education is going to spread. So it’s like our motto ‘to empower one is to empower others.’” Cuddy said. “We mentor our students and give them volunteer opportunities. “Which can be tutoring younger kids, working at a tree nursery planting trees, working at an orphanage. “The goal is that students are giving back while receiving an education. “So we’re hoping to get students on board here, to give them the opportunity of awareness. What is it like to go to school in Kenya or
Tanzania? “And help [students] realize their privileges and use them to help other people.” The organization has been active since 2008 and is currently hoping to take on a bicycle or dorm project to ensure means of transportation for the students in Africa. “We’re researching the idea of helping students get to school at these remote places. So we’re looking to take on maybe one or two students next year, but really we want to ensure we’re making a tangible impact,” Cuddy said. Cuddy will be speaking Sunday June 15, 8 p.m. at Strathcona Park Lodge dinning hall.
Education is Power and Cuddy will present a philosopher night with guest speakers Dave Mills from Dogwood Initiative and Brian Gunn from Concerned Engineers of BC to discuss Canadian Oil Development and Democracy (including silent auction benefit). Also, on Wednesday June 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Campbell River Library, Cuddy will do a talk on Education is Power with a goal of gaining interested people to help organize a fundraiser in Campbell River. To see what education is power is up to, you can check out the website www.educationispower.org.
Dave Cuddy is all thumbs up with his friends at a primary school in Kenya.

Charlotte weaves a web of service and excellence
Students contemplate what’s in store for 2014/15 Larissa MeLviLLe
As the school year comes to a close and finals approach, new feelings sweep over the students of Carihi. Sure school is becoming more and more important as the year edges on, and all those missing projects pile on one after another, but the summer break is coming, and probably faster than most are expecting it to. Carihi student Erin Milligan believes that the year passed quickly due to many new things she experienced this school year, which she hasn’t experienced in previous years. “Yes, this year passed by quickly because the classes have been more fun and the teachers just seemed really into what they were doing. I also met many new people.” The 2013-2014 year at Carihi has been full of original ideas, and many productions, many of which were created and organized by Carihi students. “The Nautical science program is one of many new and innovative ideas this year,” says another Carihi student Christina Kelly, “but next year I’m looking forward to more sciences and more job opportunities.” While Kelly believes that the year went by fairly slowly due to a heavier coarse load, both she and Milligan agree that now that school is ending, they will be happier overall just to indulge in a little time for themselves in the sun. “Carihi is very interactive. Their

programs are super vast and inclusive,” says Milligan, “but there are some things that Carihi could do better for next year.” Both Kelly and Milligan agree that even though there are many positive aspects, there are some things that Carihi could change for next year, like more variety at the breakfast table or more time spent outside of school on field trips. For all of the students who are graduating this year, high school will unfortunately become a past memory, but for them, life is just getting started as they will be experiencing a new beginning in the depths of the world of work.
The Glyn Fitzgerald award has honoured Carihi graduates who excel in scholarship, sportsmanship, leadership, and citizenship since 1966. This year the award went to Charlotte Morrison, a student, who, throughout her time at Carihi, has contributed to the community and strived for excellence. Glyn Cecil Fitzgerald was born on June 6, 1933 in Alert Bay. He attended school in Campbell River, and although he graduated from Lord Byng High School in Vancouver, he was well-rounded as a high school student. He was an athlete, an avid community volunteer, and the president of his student council in his Grade 12 year. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree at UBC and graduated with honours in History and Mathematics. Post-graduation, he was commissioned as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy. In 1963 he was appointed base manager and pilot of the Okanagan Helicopters establishment in Campbell River, and on Sept. 19, 1965, Fitzgerald was killed in a flying accident in rugged mountainous terrain in the Tofino/Zaballos region of Vancouver Island.
Charlotte Morrison (right) was presented the Glyn Fitzgerald Award by Carihi principal Sean Toal.
Jane Kolmatycki, a counsellor at Carihi explained the start of the annual award. “His many friends in aviation and in the village community decided to set up a Memorial Fund for an annual award to the graduating Carihi student who best exemplifies the qualities of scholarship, sportsmanship, leadership, and citizenship. So, in 1966, the year of our first graduating class, we honoured our first graduate with this award, a tradition we are still doing, some 48 years later,” she said. This year, at the Scholarship and Bursary evening, Morri-
son received the Glyn Fitzgerald award. Sean Toal, the principal of Carihi, presented her with the award and spoke of the Morrison’s achievements. “To be considered for the Glyn, it is imperative that the student demonstrate outstanding work ethic and performance in the classroom,” Toal said. “Charlotte consistently ranks at the top of her class and is described as hard working and conscientious - a student who strives to excel. “We are also honoured to recognize her contributions to the school and to the community that show her to be a well-rounded individual, who seems to be at every event and function working selflessly behind the scenes in the spirit of service leadership. It has been a pleasure getting to know this young lady over the past three years. Her positive attitude, constant smile, and genuine care and support of her friends and classmates exemplifies her worthiness of this award. Even though, after a tough test this year, she joked with me about lowering her standards to becoming a ‘C’ student to relieve the pressure she puts on herself (she has been a principal’s honour roll student since she arrived here at Carihi), I am confident that she will continue to excel in whatever she chooses to pursue.”

ided by sunny and warm weather, Campbell River and Quadra Island turned out en masse to celebrate Bike to Work Week 2014 from May 26 - June 1. There were 416 cyclists registered for the event, including 129 new riders, on 72 teams. When compared to 2013, the number of teams was down slightly but riders were up 30 per cent and new riders were up an amazing 200 per cent. Women beat out men on the participation front, making up 55 per cent of the cyclists. If everyone’s rides for the week were joined end to end, local riders would have made it to St. John’s Newfoundland and back (almost) to Campbell River with a total distance of 14,917 kilometers recorded. All of the huffing and puffing along the way burned up 447,500 calories and avoided the release of 3,200 kg of greenhouse gases. In return for their hard work, riders enjoyed fruit, yoghurt, muffins and coffee at three breakfast celebration stations and were able to chow down on fresh salmon burgers at a Spirit Square BBQ. They were also treated to a bicycle themed movie night at the Campbell River museum. Anyone who participated in the event was eligible for the Grand Prize of a Kona commuter bicycle donated by Spokes bicycle shop. The Grand Prize winner was Henry Grierson who received his new bike from Eddie Allen of Spokes. The local BTWW committee will be building on 2014’s success and has already started making preparations for Bike to Work Week 2015.
Congratulations to Teachers the grads of 2014!
We know how hard you worked to reach graduation day, and now it’s time to celebrate your accomplishments. We wish you a happy and successful future.

Women: Incontinence, bladder infections, UTI’s can be controlled within days with Bladder Control Tea for Women available in all health food stores. Stop wearing pads and diapers. Has helped tens of thousands of women. 3 million women in Canada suffer needlessly, because the World Health Organization says antibiotics lost most of their effectiveness years ago. Yes, women can go shopping and travelling without fear of wetting or odours. Free yourself from this outdated thinking. Relief guaranteed.æThe tea #4b worked and there were no side effects. After antibiotics and unsuccessful surgery I was skeptical that a tea could help. The testimonials made me try it and to my delight they were true. Angela Romualdi, 46, Maple, ON æNo more wetting accidents. Within a week I was in complete control. Deborah Haight, 49, Collingwood, ON æ After trying every medication in the last 5 years tea #4b worked better than I hoped for. Had relief in 6 days. Thank you for this great product, and above all, for truth in advertising. Marina Rosa, 57, Las Vegas, NV

I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle Products. <Many people on our website write: “Can walk again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can sleep at night” Rheumatoid arthritis in joints down 90%, same for my sister…hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.

Helps to promote healthy mood balance, relaxation, use as a sleep aid and mental stress. Stress is one of the main causes of high blood pressure. Truthful experience by people: < I am calm now in stressful situations! In the past 10 years I had a very short fuse, because my job is quite unpredictable. After I started Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 the difference was amazing. My reactions to stressful situations are totally changed. I also have more energy, too. I don’t yell at others. I have more patience and I am much happier as well. Thank you. Mary-Anne Thompson, 61, Lasalle, ON < I suffered greatly from anxiety. #66 NPN 80041855 Standard treatments did not make me feel good. So my mother bought Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 and it has been helping me a lot. I am on my 3rd bottle. Remington Fletcher, 19, Ponty Pool, ON < I have a very high stress career in the film industry. There was no time for relaxation or meditation as you are on demand for 12-15 hours a day with no breaks. Since using Bell #66I am able to focus on the tasks at hand with more patience. Thank you for your help! Christina Ollson, 36, Burnaby, BC <It’s exactly one year since we began using Bell Calming Chronix Stress #66 for our two sons. Our local health food store recommended it. Both of our sons suffer from anxiety disorders. Our older son (14) was going through puberty and had become quite unmanageable, because he is much larger than I am. We are delighted with the immediate results. Our older son became his former sweet self and our younger son’s (12) anxiety is dramatically reduced. Thank you so much.

For Father’s Day take Dad on a fascinating exploration of the mysterious Intertidal zone of Campbell River. The Museum at Campbell River is offering an Intertidal Walk on June 15, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. Biologist Sandra Milligan will lead a journey of discovery to the tip of the Willow Point Reef. “See seaweeds of all shapes and colours: the beautiful Corallina, the destructive ‘Stringy Acid Hair’, and edible ‘Soda Straws,’” says Milligan. “We’ll take a look
at the Bully-of-the-Beach and see what’s on his dinner plate. The walk will look closely at dozens of animals and algae, from crabs and chitons, to gastropods and gumboot chitons. Your observational skills will be developed and, if we’re lucky, you’ll see the most treasured and elegant of intertidal life: the opalescent nudibranch and the daisy brittle star. Once you know the names of these unusual creatures, you’ll discover the amazing strategies they’ve developed to live in this challenging environ-
ment. It will be a day to remember and an investment for future enjoyment of intertidal life!” And after the walk, why not visit the Aquarium? Dress for the weather – rubber boots are essential. The walk can be extremely slippery and wet and you should feel comfortable walking on uneven surfaces. A second walk is planned for July 11 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The cost for the Intertidal Walk is $15 for adults and $7.50 for children. Call the Museum at 250-287-3103 to register.

Councillor Ryan Mennie says good-bye KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
There will be one less body at the council table now until November’s city election. Coun. Ryan Mennie announced at Tuesday’s council meeting that he is moving to Alberta and will finish out the rest of his term on council via telephone. “I’m very sad to say that this will be my last meeting in person for the rest of my term as councillor here at city hall,” Mennie said. “After 20 years on Vancouver Island and 16 years in Campbell River, my
career as a radio broadcaster has me returning to southern Alberta.” Mennie, who hosts the afternoon show for 97.3 the Eagle, was born and raised in Alberta but moved to Campbell River in 1998. He was first elected to council in 2008 and is nearing the end of his second term. The youngest on council, Mennie has been a fierce supporter of families. He and his wife Ludy have a young daughter and recently welcomed a son to the family. Coun. Claire Moglove, who has served with
Mennie throughout his entire time on council, said the councillor brought a fresh perspective that will be missed. “Quite surprised to hear of the move and disappointed we won’t have you on council,” Moglove said. “It’s been very refreshing, in particular this term, to have your voice on council and bringing to council the perspective of a younger, family-oriented person, has been invaluable.” Coun. Andy Adams also acknowledged the

Mennie thanked council, city staff, and the community for his time as councillor. “A big thank-you to council, both this term and last, city staff for the incredibly rewarding experience working with all of you in this building, and, most importantly, thank you to the citizens of Campbell River for the opportunity to work for you as a member of council,” Mennie said. “With my wife’s family here and all the friends we’ve made over the decade, we’ll be back.”

said having Mennie on the phone will be nice, but not the same. “I will miss you. We will get to chat but it won’t be the same,” Storry said. “It has been an honour to sit beside you.” Councillors Ron Kerr and Larry Samson also had kind, parting words for Mennie and wished him well in his future endeavours. Samson said he would miss the Mennie family’s friendly faces at the city’s community events. While Mennie will continue to have a pres-

work Mennie has done to support local families. “Your advocacy for children and families in this community over the six years has been consistent and I think goes with your own personal experiences with your family,” Adams said. “I didn’t realize this would be the last time we’d see you in person but I’m used to driving around hearing your voice via the airwaves so having you dial in (to council meetings) will be appropriate.” Coun.

Fishing Corner Little girls just wanna have fun…fishing There is a special culture that exists on Discovery Pier when it comes to fishing. There are a number of tourists who arrive each year to fish the pier and who also enjoy the walk along the pier. Locals also gather at the pier on a daily basis to cast out lures in hopes of adding their name to the scoreboard. Last Sunday I watched a young family at pier and the girls were quite attentive as Dad showed them how to cast out a line. Jane and Rowan Klein from Campbell River were casting out lures with Dad’s help and they were having fun. The girls have yet to catch a fish in Campbell River, but they did catch a trout in Washington State! Fishing is a family activity and you can never be to young or old to get out and enjoy the sport of fishing

On the lakes More than 100 adults registered for the Perry Assu and Charlie Henderson Memorial Trout Derby held last weekend at Buttle Lake. The largest fish came in at 2.1 pounds and was caught by Ron Chickite of Campbell River. There were lots of prizes awarded and each year more kids come out too. The best catch and release trout fishing can be had on the Elk River. Most of the water can be unfishable, but if you can get to the pools some fun can be had on a fly rod. There are creeks that

enter the Elk and if water conditions are right those feisty little trout are fun to catch and get put back into the river.
Sockeye year? This could be a very big year for fishing guides as people are getting ready to visit Campbell River to fish for salmon in weeks to come. A big run of sockeye is expected and bookings are filling up fast. Some good reports of salmon fishing are coming from Powell River and springs are running anywhere from 14 to 19 pounds in Campbell River. Derby, Roberts Lake, Sept. 20.

WOCKS, MATTHEW TYLER Matthew â€œMattâ€? Campbell River.
HUGH BASSETT MacGREGOR of
In the early morning of June 5, 2014, Matthew passed away peacefully, after a courageous battle with cancer, comforted by family and close friends. He was 29. Matt was born in Campbell River B.C., April 26, 1985, to Robin and Leslie (Les) Wocks. In 1987, the family relocated to Port Hardy where, they remained until 1993. During that time, Matthew and his parents welcomed two more brothers to the family; Nolan (1987) and Chad (1992). Shared hobbies, adventures, homes and traits, the three brothers held an incredible bond, overflowing with laughter and loyalty. The Wocks Family settled into the small community and Matt made many friends; none as close as Shawn Milligan; a bond that formed at the tender age of two and remained until his passing day. In 1993, the Wocks family returned to Campbell River to be closer to family, and at the age of 8, Matthew met his second â€œbest budâ€? Jordan Kinakin; they also held a life long bond. Not family by blood but certainly by heart, was Katie Denne (nee Wilson) and the Wilson Family. Katie and Matt shared a very special bond. Matt always enjoyed an adventure and that often came with the outdoors; mountain biking, camping, beach days, fishing and paint ball. He also enjoyed video games and bad zombie movies; the family home was often filled with friends for marathon nights. At the age of 15, Matt found his passion for Martial Arts. It is through this practice that Matt found the mental and physical strength to carry him through some dark days. After graduating From Timberline High School in 2003, Matt remained in Campbell River for a short while before spreading his wings and moving to Fort McMurray, lured by his friend Shawn. Once there, Matt encouraged Jordan and eventually his dad and brothers to join him for work and companionship. Matt had many happy times in Fort McMurray. He made very good friends and did his best to stay close to them in spite of his illness preventing him from remaining there. Matt was a multifaceted young man. He was charming and quick witted; often keeping those around him in stitches or on their toes as he was also a practical joker. He was a straight shooter. If asked his opinion, heâ€™d give it whether you liked it or not. One of Mattâ€™s favourite quotes, â€œDo not pray for an easy life. Pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.â€? Bruce Lee.

4 March 1965 â€“ 19 May 2014
The MacGregor Ostler family announce with sad hearts the death of our much loved son and brother, Hugh MacGregor. He suffered in later years with the effects of both diabetes and other health issues and passed away quietly at home in New Westminster. Hughie was a musician for most of his life and was considered to be a very gifted guitarist, singer and composer. He was born in Campbell River and attended elementary school here. During a move to West Vancouver he attended West Bay School where his love of music first blossomed. Upon returning to Campbell River his interest in music developed more fully and he and friends formed The Elements at Campbell River Junior Secondary. Moving on to CARIHI, Hughie connected with other serious musicians who formed a senior school dance band, Big Rock. The group played at many high school functions. After graduation the band toured around B.C. and Alberta. During Expo â€™86 Big Rock members joined Randy Friskieâ€™s Elvis Show and played nightly to large crowds. Later they joined the Roy Orbison Tribute Show and toured North America accompanied by Sam Orbison, Royâ€™s brother. Hughie was raised in a large, happy, blended family. He leaves behind his mother Morgan K. Ostler and many brothers and sisters and inlaws including Jackie and Scott (Sally) MacGregor, Karen (Paul) Tate, David (Shelley Jo .d), Steve (Cheryl), Jeff, Murray, Kath (Will .d) Klassen, and Bill (Sadie) as well as his maternal aunts Shelagh John and Grace Moreau. Also missing him very much are his nephews and nieces Jasmine and Nick MacGregor, Tamara and Jason White, Tanner and Dillon Klassen, Stephanie and Matthew Ostler, Angus and Henry Ostler and their mother Barb, and Madison Ostler. He was predeceased by his father Howard MacGregor, stepfather Robert Ostler, aunts Pamela Scott and Maureen Taylor and uncle Terence Scott. He was also predeceased by his paternal uncles and aunts John, Bob, Aline and Kitty MacGregor. His many cousins on Vancouver Island and around B.C. also cherish good memories of hanging out with Hughie, who always had a guitar in his pack ready to join the music. To celebrate Hughie and his love of music, the family will hold a Ceilidh (music, dancing & story telling) at the Maritime Heritage Centre on Sunday evening, June 22 from 8-11pm. The original members of Big Rock , Clayton Hill, Steve Hillis and Dave Hillis are still playing professionally and will be together again to play the music of their old band. Members of the 1983 CARIHI grad class are especially invited to attend as well as those who loved dancing to the special sound of the Big Rock band.
Matt is predeceased by his grandfather Donald Wocks and his great-grandparents, Reginald and Dorothy Davies and Opal Darby. Grieving Matthewâ€™s loss are his parents Les and Robin Wocks, brothers Nolan and Chad Wocks, grandparents Marlene Wocks, Barry and Carolyn Davies. Aunt and Uncle Tamara Wocks (Treg) and Ron Davies. Godparents Uncle Stacy and Mimi Wilson. Family of the heart Shawn, Jordan and Kate. Plus so many friends; most notably Hans (Saundrine), Brad (Mandy), Kelvin, Adam, Dana and Whitney among others. A celebration of Mattâ€™s life will be held June 21, 2014 at 2:00pm and will be hosted by the Kunz family in their home at 3801 Island Highway, Campbell River. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Campbell River Hospice Society.

MICIC, Cindy Sue (Tabish)
October 15, 1960 - May 30, 2014 It is with great sadness that the family of Cindy Sue Micic (Tabish) announce her sudden passing on May 30, 2014 at the age of 53 years in Melbourne, Australia. She is survived by her husband John; sons: Jordan and Sean; her brothers: Larry (Gloria), Allen, David (Debbie), Loren (Debbie); her sisters: Sandra Cleveland (Dale), Donna, Peggy Carmichael (Rob); aunts: Vicki Briggs and Rose Bernard; uncle: Ed Fulowski (Ferol); numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father Vincent (Sandy) Tabish; her mother Isabel (nee Fulowski); brother Dennis and sisterin-law Leona Tabish. Cindy was born on October 15th, 1960 in Weyburn, Sask. She grew up on the family farm and attended grade school in Halbrite, Sask. At the age of ten she moved with her family to Campbell River, BC, where she finished her schooling, graduated grade 12 and moved to Edmonton where she took great pride in becoming an audio salesperson. A few years later Cindy moved to Victoria and attended Camosun College. In May 1985, she married John Micic in Victoria, BC. They moved to Melbourne, Australia in 1988 where she worked in office management and accounting. Her greatest accomplishments were her two sons Jordan and Sean. Cindy enjoyed her closest friends and a good laugh. She loved all kinds of music and loved to share her finds with others. At the time of her passing she was again, working in the retail sector, which she found quite rewarding. Cindy will be greatly missed by all that knew her. She will live on in our hearts for ever. Funeral Services were held in Melbourne on June 10, 2014. The family will be having a private memorial at a later date. Donations in Cindy's memory may be made to First Stone Stables Society, 18573-0 Avenue, Surrey BC V3S 9R9, or online at firststonestables.ca. It's a loving place where disadvantaged children get to feel accepted and safe and learn to care for horses.

A rare Ford Mustang T5 ready to make its public bow By Nigel Matthews Our classic and collector car expert continues today with the final part of his four-part series on the restoration of public relations executive Laura Ballance’s rare 1967 Ford Mustang T5 by 360 Fabrication in Abbotsford.
Mustang? – The Ford Mustang could not be sold in Germany as a Mustang because a truck manufacturer there and later a motorcycle manufacturer owned the trademarked name Mustang. Both manufacturers offered to sell the rights to Ford for $10,000 each but Ford declined and decided the solution would be to use the initial Mustang project name T5 as the solution. With all of the changes required, they should have probably paid the $10,000. With there being so many U.S. armed forces bases in Germany, export models were highly sought after. Laura had no idea how rare her
Prosecuting ‘Curbers’ is costly to the taxpayer By Keith Morgan Today, we conclude our look at so-called Curbers: con artists dedicated to separating you from your hard-earned cash by selling you a vehicle that is not all it seems to be. Bringing a curber conman to justice can cost tens of thousands of dollars. While penalties can be high, many successful prosecutions may yield a fine of just a few hundred dollars. One case currently before the courts is five days into a trial over a $288 ticket. The costs to date of further action against the offender are now approaching $80,000. At first sight, one might think it appropriate to save public cash but the problem is allowing a dismissal to occur sets a dangerous precedent that could harm future prosecutions. Because the matter is still before the court, the accused’s name is withheld but the circumstances can be revealed because they are instructive. The Surrey man has undergone continuous legal action by the VSA (in partnership with the City of Surrey). The Provincial Court found him guilty on three charges of curbing. He continued to curb so the VSA obtained an injunction from the BC Supreme Court. That did not deter him so the VSA applied to the BC Supreme Court to find him in contempt of court. If successful the man will face a fine of $10,000 if found curbing again. This form of con clearly can be very profitable, if the perpetrators figure fines and legal expenditures are merely the cost of doing business. However, the following cases illustrates typical curber practices and the penalties they could face. One prolific curber was convicted with 31 counts of fraud. He was buying vehicles wholesale from licensed dealers and selling them to the public. He rolled back more than two million kilometres. He was fined $31,000, two vehicles were
seized from him, and he was put on probation for three years. A curber from Williams Lake claimed he sold cars as a hobby. After several tickets and warnings from the VSA, Crown Counsel issued court charges against him. After pleading guilty, he was fined $2,000. The legislation allows for a maximum fine of up to $100,000 for individuals and $200,000 for corporations. A Delta man was convicted of fraud – 15 charges with evidence of odometer tampering, inaccurate vehicle histories, sales tax violations and other deliberately deceptive practices. Crown Prosecutor said he targeted the most vulnerable consumers, such as recent immigrants who had poor English. There was deliberate planning to perpetrate each fraud – finding a low priced vehicle, rolling back the odometer, detailing to improve the appearance of the vehicle, creating a false history, finding a suitable “victim,” forging official documents and tax fraud. This occurred on more than one occasion. As the buyers were “complicit” in the fraud, there was no consumer restitution for 12 of the 15 counts. They agreed to false documentation to save on taxes – a common practice used by curbers. This makes consumers fearful to go to authorities when something goes awry. He received a one-year conditional sentence (effectively house arrest, except for medical emergencies or to work, with the terms easing as the year progresses). He also agreed to perform 100 hours of community service. I’m indebted to the Vehicle Sales Authority of BC for providing the research necessary for produce last week’s typical curber profile story and today’s account of real scams. Please, if you don’t want to buy from an established dealership, do your due diligence as to the registration and condition of the vehicle you plan to buy. email@example.com

The restoration story of Laura Ballance’s Mustang T5 has been an interesting to follow and one that is not typical of this kind of project. Before I get carried away telling you what a T5 actually is, I have to report that with the help of the team at 360 Fabrication, suppliers White and Peters, BASF paint and the 200 plus hours of paint preparation, application, wet sanding and polishing by master painter Darren Emmerson, the car is finished! And here is the best part, it’s on time and under budget, almost unheard of in days gone by let alone today. So what is so special about a T5
for Laura, her two daughters and the Mustang. I suspect her father, never in his wildest dreams would have thought the car would end up as a show car let alone become a family affair involving three generations of his family. The T5 will debut at the Vancouver Classic Car Show and Auction at the PNE on June 21 and 22. A picture of it at it’s gleaming best in next week’s Driveway preview of that show. Then it will head south in July to
the Mustang Roundup in Bellevue, Washington, the world’s largest Mustang meet. The car is entered in the Concours restoration class and should place well. Because this is the 50th anniversary of the Mustang the invitations are pouring in, the most recent one from an event in North Carolina, Laura still has a day job so unfortunately will miss that one. She will finish the summer off at the Luxury SuperCar weekend at
VanDusen Gardens in September. The car will be viewed at least 30 or 31 times in a month, gracing the walls of garages and repair shops all over North America featured in a 2015 Ford calendar. This concludes a restoration project with a happy conclusion. Nigel Matthews is the director of sales and marketing for Hagerty Insurance Canada. firstname.lastname@example.org

Nyrstar, Quinsam mines big winners in rescue competition
After an intense and energetic competition, seven dedicated teams claimed victory last weekend at the 59th annual Mine Rescue and First Aid Competition in Smithers. Mine enthusiasts, family and friends gathered in Smithers on Saturday to watch nine mine rescue and eight first aid teams challenged by rope rescue rigging, complex industrial hazards and dynamic smoke and fire tasks. Teams are comprised of those working at B.C. mines with backgrounds in firefighting, emergency response and high-angle rescue, and often also lend their rescue expertise to their local communities. The competition is divided into three categories: Surface, Underground and Three Person First Aid and features life-like simulations that test skills in firefighting, first aid, rope rescue, extrication and general mine rescue knowledge. T h e Mu t u a l A i d Scramble returned for its second year as a part of the competition, mixing the teams in a trial designed to test teamwork and co-operation. The ability to adapt to working together is important if mining emergency responders are called to provide a multiple resource rescue effort. The winning team captained by Delainy Barry, Peace River Coal,

Physical Check-up for seniors by Dr. Ingrid Pincott, N.D.
re you getting the complete yearly check up that you need to obtain optimal health? Are you doing enough to stay out of the hospital? Do you want to reduce the number of medications you are taking? A yearly check up for those 55 and older should include blood work such as 25(OH) vitamin D, CRP (C –reactive protein) an inﬂ ammatory marker and ferritin (iron stores). If vitamin D levels are not optimal at 150nmol/l then there is a possible increase risk of many cancers, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression and poor energy. The list goes on! CRP is a measure of inﬂ ammation and if your body is inﬂ amed then the source needs to be identifi ed. Lowering CRP lowers the risk of all the diseases of aging including cancer, heart disease and dementia. Ferritin often increases with age and it is also an inﬂ ammatory marker and keeping it between 50- 120 is best. A comprehensive cardiovascular blood work-up done with Atherotech gives people their risk factors for insulin resistance leading to
diabetes and heart disease as well as cardiovascular risk for heart attacks and strokes. This testing measures actual levels and sizes of HDL and LDL cholesterol lipoproteins. Typical lipid panels are calculations of cholesterols rather than actual numbers counted and sizes of the cholesterols are not measured in Canada. Once your risk has been identifi ed then a treatment program is instituted and monitored until the risk is lowered and maintained. Nutritional defi ciencies are common as the digestive ability to absorb nutrients declines with age. B12, vitamin D and minerals are the most common. For example alcohol depletes B vitamins especially B12. I fi nd that many neurological symptoms including dizziness and cognitive decline, as well as fatigue and bursitis of the hips and shoulders, respond well to B12 injections. Many physicians will not give B12 injections unless the blood work shows a defi ciency. In my practice I base B12 injections therapy on symptoms and response and this water soluble B vitamin is
well tolerated at high doses and long term therapy. Most seniors are low in Vitamin D and minerals and when these are restored many symptoms improve: insomnia, energy, joint pain, depression and blood pressure. Magnesium is a must in any mineral supplement and is the most important mineral for the treatment of heart arrthymias. Identifying food sensitivities can help many with their aches and pains as well as help with weight loss and controlling blood sugars. If you are taking a non-steroidal anti-inﬂ ammatory for pain, all you are doing is cutting the wires to the fi re alarm, you are not getting to the cause of the pain. Natural anti-inﬂ ammatories and joint health remedies work very well at lowering CRP, reducing the need for yet another medication. Osteopenia and osteoporosis often respond well to naturopathic treatment without the use of prescription medication. Hormone balancing for both men and women is important at any age and can be done with neutraceuticals as well as bioidentical
hormones. Specialized testing helps provide the help that is needed. There is help for recurrent urinary tract infections and enlarged prostates! Mental health issues may often be related to defi ciencies and when corrected, and combined with the use of other remedies that balance neurotransmitters in the brain, another prescription for antidepressants may be avoided. The goal of the comprehensive naturopathic check up is to keep you out of the hospital as much as is possible. Having a strong foundation for health is true health insurance! Check out www.projectbiglife.ca for expected number of days you might spend in the hospital based on your life style.

Keeping active as we age
here are a few things that seem to become really important as we become older adults - wanting to keep active without straining and injuring ourselves, keeping ﬂ exible, maintaining good bone density & having an alert mind that is not buzzing in a stressful way. “Chitta Vritti Nirodhh” is a Yoga saying which can be translated as “the cessation of the ﬂ uctuations of the mind.” Where the restless mind is calmed and the feeling of distracting energy is directed into constructive thought or movement. This is one of the greatest benefi ts that a regular Yoga practice gives you… but can you begin Yoga when you are over 50? The great news is YES! You have probably read the statistics - Yoga not only creates a stronger, more ﬂ exible body; it also sharpens the senses, the mind and vastly increases your aerobic capacity. First, visit your doctor and inform them that you are going to begin attending Yoga. Ask them to recommend what information your Yoga teacher should know about you. Find yourself either a Beginner or Gentle Yoga class and let the teacher know that you are attending for the fi rst time, as well as any health concerns. If you have kept a physically active lifestyle Yoga may come easily to you and
the teacher may direct you to other styles of classes that may interest and challenge you. There are 5 benefi ts of a regular Yoga practice: Low-impact Exercise and Awareness In a Yoga class, you use the weight of your own body to create the dynamic poses (asanas). By bearing weight and consciously distributing it creates strength. By paying attention to your posture, you will begin to correct any bad habits you may have. Yoga includes many balancing poses which not only strengthen your body, sharpen your concentration, but also stimulate your neurons that send information to your ankles, feet and toes, which therefore become more healthy, making you less susceptible to falls. As you begin to truly feel the vibrancy of your own body, your lifestyle will naturally become healthier.
Flexibility and Bone Density “Your body is as young as your spine” says Iyengar. When ﬂ exibility is encouraged gently in the body, it is amazing how quickly the body responds. Regular Yoga increases circulation to all soft tissue in the body, resulting in an improved range of motion. You will soon choose to do certain poses at home to enjoy the sensation of your body unwinding itself. Doctor Loren Fishman, author of “Yoga for Osteoporosis” says “Yoga pits one muscle group against another to generate forces far greater than gravity. Yoga is isometric exercise.
by Lorna Seldon Burd, Ocean Mountain Yoga
It is also weight bearing. Both of these types of activity have been proven to improve bone strength. Unlike most forms of “weightbearing” activity, Yoga does not damage cartilage or lead to osteoarthritis, another peril of aging. Yoga stretches the muscles, increasing the range of motion that osteoarthritis otherwise inexorably narrows. By improving range of motion, Yoga counters the chief and sometimes terrible impairment that comes with osteoarthritis.” Breathing and Blood Pressure Yoga means “Union of breath, body & mind” so all Yoga poses are done with a focus on how you breath as well as how you maintain a correct physical pose. This practice of breath work (Pranayama) has far reaching benefi ts from calming the mind to enhancing your respiratory function. There are breath exercises to heat you up and cool
you down. Some work on digestion, improving bowel function. Breath techniques are wonderful tools to improve your quality of sleep as well as lower your blood pressure.
Improved Memory and Mood The combination of physical poses (asana) with breath work (pranayama) stimulate the nervous system and the brain, improving memory as well as relieving anxiety. Simply attending a class, can change how you feel. Every pose has it’s benefi ts, backward bending poses are known to help “lift one’s spirits”. Forward bends are calming. You might be surprised that after a few weeks some of your aches and pains disappear, that you no longer need some of your pain medications and that life seems to have taken on a rosy hue.
Sense of Humour The best part about going to a Yoga class is that you get to have fun. One of the fi rst steps of Yoga is to let go of your ego. Have no expectations of what your body will be able to do on any day. This way you will be surprised, and will enjoy the challenges with humour. Know that your Yoga practice is a deeply personal journey and be grateful for your health, as it is, every day. Namaste.

or many seniors fearful of fi nancial struggles, living on a fi xed income can be a helpful way of ensuring their future does not involve fi ling for bankruptcy. Though living on a fi xed income is a defi nite challenge and certainly offers no guarantee that bankruptcy can be avoided, it does provide a framework seniors can rely on to keep their heads above water during diffi cult economic times.
Fixed Income just how much you can spend each month.
Prioritize spending habits. Some expenses, including medications and monthly utility bills, will always remain a top priority. However, men and women who must begin living on a fi xed income need to prioritize how they spend their discretionary funds. For instance, a membership at the local country club can cost several thousands of dollars per year, whereas the local public golf course only charges players Make an honest assessment. each time they play.

Downsizing and moving from a long time home.
ownsizing and leaving a long time family home is a special passage in life and deserves time to look back, caring attention, and practical support. It is estimated that it takes a minimum of 80 combined hours to completely sort and pack an average home. This is a enormous task. Sorting through a lifetime of accumulation can be done! Delaney Relocation Services has helped many families and guided them through the process and help them gain meaning and comfort from sorting through family treasures. Imagine the array of accumulated things, furniture, silver ware, china, linens, glassware, pottery, artwork,
old photos, children’s toys, post cards, stamp collections, books, sewing items, craft items, tools and much more. Letting go of things that have been lived with for a long time is hard, but joy can be found in giving to family and friends who will cherish them. Moving is a great time for personal growth and healing, when a person settles into their new home, they can have a sense of satisfaction about the past and hope for the future. Reminiscing is a combination of a little grief and a lot of celebration. Remember you do not have to go it alone, help is at hand by calling Delaney Relocation Services at 250-334-9922.

8 to take care of themselves or manage their own fi nances. These factors make seniors especially attractive and vulnerable to con artists, particularly those who prey on well-intentioned men and women by posing as fake charities. But there are steps seniors can take to protect themselves from fraud. Be skeptical of solicitors. Many con artists will indicate that persons have given to the charity in the past, hoping that prospective victims simply won’t remember if that claim is valid or not. If a solicitor or appeal letter claims that you donated in the past, don’t simply take it at face value, especially
Precautions seniors can take when solicited for donations
harities often target certain groups of people when soliciting donations. Those groups may include past donors and people who have recently attended charitable fundraisers. It should come as no surprise that criminals posing as legitimate organizations tend to target specifi c groups of people as well. Anyone can be fooled
by a fraudulent charity, but such criminals tend to target seniors more than others. Seniors often make attractive targets to con artists because seniors are most likely to have substantial savings, own their homes and/or have excellent credit. In addition, elderly victims of fraud and other crimes are less likely to report those crimes out of fear that their families may feel they are no longer able

if you don’t recall making such a donation. Get specifi c information about alleged past donations, checking that information against your own bank records and receipts. Many donors claim donations as deductions on their tax returns, which also can be used to verify or debunk solicitors’ claims. Though not all solicitors claiming a past history of donations are dishonest, this is one way that criminals attempt to create a rapport with potential victims, so such claims should be verifi ed before making any donations. Don’t feel obligated to reciprocate a gift with a donation. Many charities send gifts, be it mailing labels or holiday cards, to prospective donors as a token of appreciation for past donations and as a way of encouraging future donations. Con artists are fully aware of this tactic and may try to imitate it in an attempt to defraud potential victims. No matter if the people behind those mailing labels or holiday ornaments are legitimate charities or con artists, you should not feel compelled to reciprocate a free gift with a fi nancial donation. Beware of solicitors pressuring you to donate. Reputable charities should
not be on the verge of shut down if you fail to make a donation, so such organizations never pressure prospective donors into making donations. If a solicitor is pressuring you into making a donation over the phone or in person, chances are strong that this person is not representing a reputable charity. In such instances, hang up the phone or, if the solicitor is on your property, politely close the door, ask the solicitor to leave your property and contact the local authorities. Send donations directly to the charity after independently conﬁrming their address. When making charitable donations, those donations should never be given directly to solicitors. Donations should only be made after you have independently confi rmed the charity’s address and mailed straight to the organization. Never make a cash donation, as cash provides no paper trail should you want to deduct your donation or should you learn that you were victimized by a con artist posing as a representative of
a reputable charity. Request personal information not be shared. Upon receiving a charitable donation, many charities share their donors’ contact information with other charities. Such actions are legal as long as no sensitive information is shared. But many donors would prefer their contact information not be shared so they don’t fi nd themselves being inundated with solicitations from other charities. Donors can ask to opt out of having their personal information shared upon making a donation. This is especially important for seniors living on fi xed incomes who simply cannot afford to support many causes no matter how compelling those causes are.

Exercise and aging Common concerns about exercise after 50
xercise is an essential element of a healthy lifestyle. Including exercise in your daily routine can lower your risk for diabetes, heart disease and stroke, and exercise can even sharpen mental acuity, reduce anxiety and improve mood. But as benefi cial as exercise can be, many men and women, particularly men and women over the age of 50, who have not laced up their sneakers in years are hesitant to begin an exercise regimen for a variety of reasons, potentially putting their long-term health at risk. Regardless of a person’s age, beginning a new exercise regimen can be intimidating. But it’s especially so for men and women over the age of 50, who might not know where to begin or how to approach adopting a healthier lifestyle. According to the National Institute on Aging, the following are a few points men and women should know as they attempt to improve their physical fi tness with a more active lifestyle. • Exercise is safe even
if you have not been physically active in a long time. Many older men and women worry that suddenly embracing physical fi tness after years of inactivity may be detrimental to their health. But that’s only true if men and women don’t exercise caution at the outset of their routines. When beginning the routine, take things very slowly at fi rst, choosing to walk or bike every day rather than hitting the treadmill and adjusting it to maximum resistance. When strength training, start off with very little weight so your muscles can grow acclimated to the motions and you can get the exercises down pat. As you grow more comfortable and your body starts to feel more up to the challenges of daily exercise, you can begin to gradually alter your cardiovascular and strength training workouts to make them more challenging. • Exercise can make existing medical conditions more manageable. Men and women over the age of 50 who have preexisting
medical conditions are likely to fi nd that exercise alleviates rather than exacerbates their physical problems. Studies have shown that regular exercise and physical activity can benefi t people with arthritis, high blood pressure and heart disease. But it’s still recommended that men and women with preexisting medical conditions consult with their physicians before making any lifestyle changes. Some conditions may affect a person’s ability to be active, and it’s best to get the go-ahead from a physician before beginning an exercise regimen. Doctors may even suggest certain activities that have been known to alleviate particular conditions. • Exercise reduces fatigue, so sitting around to preserve strength is not effective. Exercise improves strength and energy levels, so sitting on the sideline to preserve your strength is counterproductive and could lead to serious medical problems. Men and women who are inactive are almost twice as likely to develop heart disease as those who are more active. While getting adequate rest and giving your body ample time recover from physical activity is essential, your body won’t benefi t by avoiding exercise to preserve your strength. However, even moderate physical activity performed on a regular basis can reduce fatigue. • No one is too old to exercise. It’s not

uncommon for men and women in their golden years to think they are too old to exercise. Some may feel that their toned down workouts cannot possibly be making much of an impact thanks to the physical limitations old age has put on their bodies, while others may think it’s unwise for someone in their 70s or 80s to be physically active. But no one is too old to exercise, as exercise helps the body stay strong and fi t even when you can no longer max out on the bench press or squat hundreds of pounds. Scaling back your exercise routine will be
necessary as you get older, but that does not mean you cannot
still enjoy and benefi t from physical activity. Continuing to exercise as you age is a great way to improve your quality of life and stay as active as possible well into your golden years.

Managing money after 50
nvestors know that money management can be diffi cult. The ebb and ﬂ ow of the economy can be similar to a roller coaster, with soaring highs followed by steep drops, and those changes all affect investors’ bottom lines. It’s no wonder then that many investors over 50 envision the day when they can get off that
roller coaster and simply enjoy their money without having to worry about the everyday ups and downs of the market. But managing money after 50 is about more than just reducing risk. Reducing risk as retirement draws near is a sound fi nancial strategy that can safeguard men and women over 50 from the ﬂ uctuations of
the market That’s true whether investors put their money in stocks, real estate or other areas that were not immune to the ups and downs of the economy. But there are additional steps men and women can take after they turn 50 to ensure their golden years are as enjoyable and fi nancially sound as possible. • Prioritize saving for

retirement. Men and women over 50 know that retirement is right around the corner. Despite that, many people over 50 still have not prioritized saving for retirement. It’s understandable that other obligations, be it paying kids’ college tuition or offering fi nancial assistance to aging parents, may seem more immediate, but men and women over 50 should recognize that their time to save for retirement is rapidly dwindling. Just because you are retired does not mean your bills will magically disappear. In fact, some of those bills, such as the cost of
medical care, are likely to increase. So now is the time to make retirement a priority if you have not already done so. It might be nice to fi nance a child’s college education, but that should not be done at the expense of your retirement nest egg. Kids have a lifetime ahead of them to repay college loans, while adults over 50 do not have that much time to save for retirement. • Start making decisions. People retire at different times in their lives. Some people want to keep working as long as they are physically and
mentally capable of doing so, while others want to reap what their lifetime of hard work has sewn and retire early. Finances will likely play a strong role in when you can comfortably retire, so start making decisions about your long-term future. Do you intend to stay in your current home or downsize to a smaller home? Will you stay in your current area or move elsewhere? These decisions require a careful examination of your fi nances, and many will hinge on how well you have managed your money in the past and how well you manage it in the years ahead.

Marine Link Tours Freight Boat Cruise Vacations on the “MV Aurora Explorer”
ruise the inland waterways of coastal British Columbia and experience the magic of the MV Aurora Explorer, a 135 foot landing craft that transports a wide variety of heavy equipment and general freight throughout the Gulf of Georgia and the remote inlets of Johnstone and Queen Charlotte Straits. You will enjoy rugged coastal scenery, observe many species of whales and other sea life, and experience the history and inﬂuence of the early explorers, settlers, cannery workers and native populations on the coast. You’ll listen as the crew works the radio telephones or navigates the ship by radar and watch as freight is loaded and discharged along the way. The Aurora Explorer operates from a base
“A One of a Kind Journey into the Pacific Northwest’s Inside Passage” at Menzies Bay (15 km north of Campbell River, BC, Canada), and offers a dining lounge, lower deck lounge and bridge deck lounge for passenger comfort and viewing. There is a nautical and history library of coastal BC on board. The vessel has outside observation decks where passengers can observe activity on the freight deck, enjoy the passing scenery or simply lie back and soak up the sunshine and salt air. The Aurora Explorer is Transport Canada Ship Safety approved
and carries the full range of safety equipment as directed by the Canadian Coast Guard. Passenger accommodations received an upgrade during the winter 2012/13 and now offers one bunk-bed style stateroom and ﬁve twin bed style staterooms. There are six shared washrooms, three shower rooms. Passenger accommodation is offered on regular freight voyages to a variety of coastal locations. Trip packages are ﬁve days in duration. Passengers enjoy observing the ship at work, but there’s also time
for play. Going ashore for a picnic or exploring tide pools in a hidden bay, throwing in a line when the vessel is waiting on the tide and barbeques on the deck are all part of the pleasures of freight-boat cruising on the Aurora Explorer. The Georgia Straits of coastal British Columbia, Canada are dotted with hundreds of islands. This is lumber and ﬁshing country, nearly free of roads. One cargo ship delivers heavy equipment and supplies to remote camps, and takes on passengers to view the wild beauty of the straits
and inlets, with towering peaks and glaciers overlooking the sea. www.marinelinktours.com 250-286-3347
