Camosun student is making a name for herself Kyle Slavin News staff

Sara Wilson is quickly making a name for herself in a very male-dominated industry. The sheet metal apprentice worker was recently recognized by Camosun College for being the school’s top all-round trades student, and came in second in a national competition for sheet metal apprentices. “It doesn’t surprise me,” said Ken MacDonald, Camosun’s sheet metal program leader. “Year after year, she was the top of her class. She’s quiet, poised – she’s a model student. And her skills were not only good with textbooks and written tests, she was also very good in the shop working with

her hands and the materials.” Wilson, 29, is newly graduated and now finishing her apprenticeship at Seaspan Victoria Shipyards. And having received Camosun’s John Drysdale Memorial Award and a second-place finish at Canadian Sheet Metal Apprenticeship Competition in May, she should have no trouble finding a career upon completing her red-seal journeyman certification. “Right after high school I went to university and got my Bachelor of Arts. I worked at a coffee shop for a while before I realized I wanted a career that I enjoyed,” Wilson said. “I wanted to find a career I would love and I was thinking of things I enjoyed growing up – hands on things like Lego and Meccano.”

Her first taste of the trades was through Camosun’s trades exploration course, where students get to try their hand at a variety of trades before choosing a more focused path. She quickly discovered sheet metal was where her passion lied. “Just the laying out of the pattern on the metal, figuring out to to fit it on there, cutting it out and folding it up, putting all the pieces together. It’s like a puzzle,” Wilson said of her trade. “It’s very cerebral. You have to do a lot of thinking, and a lot of hands-on work. Time just flies, I have a lot of fun doing it.” Please see: Following a career path she’s proud of, page 3

Recording the history of B.C.’s wartime militia

Victoria author David Clark seeks information on the Sidney and James Island Rangers Steven Heywood News staff

Between the years 1942 and 1945, there were an estimated 15,000 members of a B.C. militia group tasked with protecting the west coast in the event of an invasion. Yet, many people have not heard about these men — a fact that Victoria author David Clark hopes to change. Clark, author of Pacific Coastal Militia Rangers, a pictoral history, is looking to add more information to his collection about Rangers units from the Saanich Peninsula, specifically from Sidney, Brentwood Bay and James Island. The problem is, he says, there is very little official information on the Rangers retained by the Department of National Defence (DND) following the Second World War. These days, Clark says he’s relying on people’s collections and family histories to come up with photos and muster rolls for the various militia companies on Vancouver Island and across the province. For instance, Clark says he has worked with Jim White, a member of a Victoria-area rifle club that grew out of the Southern Vancouver Island Rangers Company No. 1. The club, Clark says, held onto the historical artifacts from their parent unit and were a wealth of information for his book. Details on other units, however, has

He does have some photos of the unit in his book — one is a black and white image of a training exercise showing a group of Rangers storming a Saanich Peninsula beach. Clark says he’s relying on the families of former Rangers to find material to round out his history of the organization. Ranger units formed following the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1942, Clark says. They were informal groups of men and boys age 13 to 87 were were unpaid volunteers. They

were eventually placed under the control of the DND at the time. Armed with their personal rifles and outfitted in their own clothes and often

their own scrounged equipment, the Rangers throughout B.C. guarded vital infrastructure and coastlines against an attack from Japan. While their equipment gradually improved, the Rangers were still considered a sort of home guard — local people who knew well their own backyards. Clark says there were four Rangers units between Victoria and the Saanich Peninsula and covered territory from there to the Malahat and as far as Jordan River. James Island, at the time an explosive manufacturing site, was protected by Company 133 due to its strategic importance. After the war, the units were stood down and disbanded. Neither DND, says Clark, nor Library and Archives Canada retained any photographs or lists of the names of these men. That’s why Clark is asking people for their help. If anyone has information about local Rangers, or who had family members in the units, they can contact Clarke at pcmr.history@ shaw.ca. “Most people don’t realize these groups existed. But they were at one time acknowledged as a major contributor to the security of the west coast.” Any remaining Rangers, Clark continues are either in their 80s or have since died. He hopes he can collect as much information as possible to keep their history alive. editor@peninsula newsreview.com

Teachers vote in favour of full-scale strike 2.75% Jeff Nagel BC Local News

B.C. teachers have voted in favour of a full walkout to put maximum pressure on the provincial government, but their union did not immediately move to issue 72-hour strike notice. The result of the vote, conducted Monday and Tuesday, was 86 per cent in favour, or 28,809 out of 33,387 ballots cast. B.C. Teachers Federation president Jim Iker called it a “very strong message” to the province. “So far this government has come to the table empty-handed, it’s time to change that,” Iker said Tuesday night. He said while teachers are prepared to go to a full-scale strike that’s “a decision we never take lightly” and would depend on how talks proceed with the provincial government. “You’ve got to remain hopeful that government has learned from the past mistakes they’ve made,” Iker said, who referred to the union’s legal battle with the province over class size and composition and “the government’s chaotic lockout.” The earliest a full-scale strike could begin is Monday and with no strike notice issued as of Wednesday it appeared the strike start could shift to next Tuesday or later.

OURCATS SPECIAL

A full strike would close elementary and middle schools – parents will be advised to make child care arrangements if necessary –  while secondary schools would be open only to conduct exams for Grade 10 to 12 students. The lack of $50-a-day strike pay – the BCTF’s strike fund was expected to be exhausted at the end of this week –  was apparently a non-issue for most teachers. Sooke Teachers Association president Ian Johnston said the strike vote was held mainly to increase pressure on the government. “It’s more the signal it sends to government; how strong is our resolve. That’s really what it’s all about,” he said. The Labour Relations Board was to hear arguments Wednesday on the province’s application to declare exams and final grades an essential service in the event of a full strike. The province has also pledged to end its partial lockout of teachers at the end of the school year to enable summer school operations. The government has saved $12 million in salaries in each week of the teachers’ rotating strike, plus nearly $5 million more by cutting wages 10 per cent based on lockout-retricted

teaching hours. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said the result was not unexpected. “While the BCTF leadership received the mandate they sought, no one should interpret this as any kind of enthusiasm on the part of teachers to shut down schools,” he said. He said teachers, parents and students would all rather finish the school year on a positive note, adding it took just five days of hard bargaining to secure a new contract for school support staff. The province has offered teachers a $1,200 signing bonus if teachers accept its proposal of 7.25 per cent in wage increases over six years by June 30. The BCTF’s latest proposal is for increases totaling 9.75 per cent over four years, plus costof-living adjustments in each year tied to inflation. The two sides have differing estimates of the compounded grand total of the union’s wage demand – the BCTF estimates it at 12.75 per cent over four years, while BCPSEA pegs it at 14.7 per cent and says other non-wage compensation costs will further increase the bill, perhaps beyond 19 per cent.

Sunny days prove risky for Canadians C

anadians love the sun so much, it’s killing us. After being cooped up for months at a time to shelter from the snow and cold and, in the case of southwestern British Columbia, interminable rain, we rejoice at the first days of warm sunshine. By July we’re positively basking in it. And that’s leading to an alarming increase in skin cancer, according to a report released by the Canadian Cancer Society, Statistics Canada and the Public Health Agency of Canada. The report says there will be about 6,500 new cases of malignant melanoma diagnosed in After being Canada this year. That’s cooped up the deadliest, most insidious form of skin for months at cancer that will kill more a time...we than 1,000 Canadians. Another 76,100 cases rejoice at the of non-melanoma skin first days of cancers will also be warm sunshine. diagnosed. Those are less serious and can usually be treated in the doctor’s office. Unlike many other forms of cancer, the incidence of skin cancer is actually going up rather than down. For men, the incidence rate went up two per cent between 1986 and 2010. For women it increased 1.5 per cent. Mortality rates also increased. Those are sobering statistics worth thinking about the next time the seven-day weather forecast shows a solid run of glowing, golden orbs. Especially since it’s so easy to prevent skin cancer. While it might be a little much to ask people to stay indoors, it’s not a big deal to put on that shirt, roll down those sleeves, slap on that hat, slop on that sunscreen. And pay heed to that UV index that’s become a standard feature of most weather forecasts to avoid the sun’s rays when they’re at their most damaging. A little summertime prevention will mean being able to enjoy a lot more sunny seasons to come. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@peninsulanewsreview.com or fax 250-656-5526.

Return bike racks to Beacon In an era where most communities are supporting the trend to carbon emission reduction by encouraging cycling and installing bike lanes and the much appreciated track around the airport, I notice someone in authority has decreed that all bike racks on Beacon Avenue be removed. I wonder if this individual was also involved in the design of the McTavish Interchange? Robert Heywood Sidney

Let’s call it a day on perfume As a resident of a retirement community, I am constantly bombarded by various scents. I understand that perfumes, at one time, were designed to mask the smell of ones hair or clothes during a by-gone era when nobody but royalty had a bath tub. But now it’s 2014 and we make perfumes out of toxic chemicals. Chemicals that are so carcinogenic that the people who make the perfume have to wear hazmat suits and respirators. In this era Joe Average can’t have a smoke on the sidewalk because of secondhand smoke, but Betty White’s grandma can put 35 sprays of methylene chloride and terpineol all over her outfit?

Harper should listen to his own advice on science I almost drove off the road while listening to Prime Minister Harper’s recent statement about vaccines on the morning radio news.   He clearly stated that parents should get their children vaccinated, science is behind it, and he does not understand how people can go off with their own theories that are not supported by scientific fact. Northern Gateway and the Alberta tar sands, greenhouse gas emission control and reduction, fish farms, muzzling of government scientists, firing of same, planning for climate change impacts, and many, many other environmental concerns — all come to mind. These are situations where he has deliberately chosen to ignore science. He needs to take his own advice very seriously and start right now to listen to the people who know much more than he does — the scientists.    Linda Brown North Saanich

Last Week

we asked you:

Bronze statue tells an important story I was dismayed to see Nathan Scott’s bronze fisherman on Beacon Avenue was “rotated to offer better passage for pedestrians.” Undoubtedly familiar to many, the man was portrayed by Scott looking up into the sky, and he still does, but at what? The whole point of the sculpture has been lost with this change, and strikes me as an affront to both the artist and the phrase “Sidney by the Sea.”  The fisherman’s gaze used to be fixed on the immovable North Star, which, through the ages, has guided countless sea farers. Even in downtown Sidney it was always there on clear nights, or between clouds. Shoes off and relaxed, the fisherman silently reminisced with anyone sharing his bench and following his gaze.  It is pointless to have him looking anywhere but at Polaris. I suggest the bench be moved nearer the sea, and away from the brightly lit street where people’s minds are on other things than stars. It is a fascinating sculpture and a real asset to Sidney, and it is well worthy of a better location and perhaps a sign, encouraging people to sit and follow his gaze. Robert Meldrum Sidney

Task force to hit the streets SIDNEY — The Mayor’s Downtown Revitalization Task Force will be undertaking a major marketing research project in Sidney beginning June 18 and running until June 27. The project will include conducting 500 in-person surveys with shoppers to gain critical data on the current retail climate and shopping trends in downtown Sidney. Additionally, two other surveys will be conducted by mail-out, with business owners and property owners. “The data collected through these surveys will be invaluable to the Task Force in identifying the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities in our downtown,” said Mayor Larry Cross. “They will provide insight for community leaders and local business owners and will certainly influence decisions made which will shape the future of

School district queries exemption Information obtained by FOI request called ‘troubling’ Devon MacKenzie News staff

A system for managing student information is a the centre of a query by the Saanich School District into the Ministry of Education’s actions. Three years ago, the school district developed a new system for managing student information called openStudent. “SD63 believed strongly in the need for a system that met the

specific needs of B.C. schools and was fully on track to implement this high quality, low cost system in September 2014,” said a release from the district. In March of this year, the district says it was informed by the Deputy Minister of Education that it had to comply with the government’s identity management standard which includes being able to work with a B.C. Services Card. As a result, the open-

Student program would no longer be functional and at the time, the district decided to scale back the development of their program. However, through a recent freedom of information request the district says that it discovered the Ministry of Education had applied for and received an exemption from the identity management standard rules until February of 2018. At that time the ministry would then have

the option to reapply for continued exemption. According to the District, they were never made aware that an exemption was a possibility. “The Saanich Board of Education finds this information very troubling and will convene next week in order to consider its response to this new information,” said the release.

Local vet helps to extend sense of community Daniel Palmer and Devon MacKenzie News staff

An Esquimalt painter wants to pay it forward after a local pet hospital saved her beloved dog in response to an online plea. Sarah Bell posted an ad to UsedVictoria.com in February requesting emergency dental help for 10-year-old Allie Mae in exchange for painting work. “I was laid off four days before Christmas, and then Allie’s tooth broke,” Bell said. “I didn’t want charity, but I didn’t get any responses.” A month went by before Bell got a call from Carly Russell-Huntley, community coordinator with the #usedhelps program. “We try to find ways of helping people in our community who post on our site, and this one really stuck out to me because she

just couldn’t afford to pay,” Russell-Huntley said. After some phone calls, Russell-Huntley was able to connect with Dean Park Pet Hospital in North Saanich who donated about $3,000 in dental work for Bell and Allie Mae. “We got a phone call asking if we’d be willing to help and we said sure,” said Dr. Sue McTaggart of Dean Park Pet Hospital, who added that many local vets do pro-bono work for those who can’t afford to have their pet’s medical needs taken care of. “It’s about giving back to the community what you can, and we had the ability to help in this situation,” said McTaggart, who is one of only 11 veterinary dentists in Canada. McTaggart did the extraction free of charge and didn’t take up Bell on her offer

Russell-Huntley agrees. “Ally Mae is her best friend, she’d do anything for this dog, and now she really wants to pay it forward,” she explained. As a result, Bell has recently posted a second ad offering her skills to a worthwhile person, non-profit or cause. UsedVictoria. com will cover paint costs up to $150 while potential recipients are asked to respond before June 16. Today, Allie Mae is healthy and full of energy, while Saskatoon transplant Bell is feeling the love from the Greater Victoria community. “I’m so thankful to the hospital staff who donated their time, the incredible vet and especially to Carly who did not give up and went the distance for us.” To view Bell’s painting services ad online, visit bit.ly/Ui07J7.

Reduce Belly Fat! Increase Energy! Testosterone levels begin to diminish in men around age 30. In fact, by the time men are 60 years old, they typically produce 60% less testosterone than they did at age 20 (a man’s sexual peak). Many men over the age of 35 may already be feeling the effects of lower testosterone including:

Increased Belly Fat Low Energy

Low Libido Mood Changes

Decreased Muscle Strength Prostate Problems and more...

Unfortunately at the same time testosterone is decreasing, estrogen levels are increasing, causing further muscle loss and gain in body fat, making it extremely difficult to maintain a healthy metabolism.

SENIORS IN FOCUS

Seniors reaching out to help shed loneliness and isolation Steven Heywood News staff

There’s a small group of seniors in Sidney who are reaching out to their peers with hands of friendship to help shed loneliness or isolation. Many of the members of this club have been in the same situation, brought about by the death of a loved one or a move to a new community that meant leaving a lot of friends behind. Gillian Else says this club has been around since 2003 to help create new friendships and prevent people from becoming too lonely. The Sidney Single Seniors 55-plus club has been flying under the radar for some time now, but with 63 members and a full slate of monthly events, it’s a group that still enjoys each other. Else, who has been with the club since 2004, says she found the group when she came to Sidney from South Africa and didn’t know a soul here, apart from her daughter. It was her daughter, she says, who mentioned the singles group, so she gave it a try. Sidney Single Seniors is not about dating, Else says, but a group of friends that enjoy each other’s company and support. They meet three times a week for coffee, she continues, two times a month to play a little golf and to

Plus, she says, they arrange trips all over the Island. “The club was started in 2003 by Ivy Buchanan,” Else says. “She was a real gogetter and at the heart of many things in the community.” It began under the auspices of Peninsula Community Services, since renamed to Beacon Community Services. Members first met at the Wakefield Manor but these days use space at the SHOAL Centre on Resthaven Drive. Else says the group is grateful for the work done by BCS staff

to facilitate their meetings and club events at SHOAL. The club was designed as a way for men and women who are bereaved or lonely to get out of the house and meet new people. It’s a supportive, fun environment, Else says, without any pressure that might lead to dates. That said, she notes some folks have hooked up and got married. Getting hitched, however, means you’re out of the club. That doesn’t mean friendships are over, she continues. Exmembers are always welcome back to the coffee sessions and friendships continue on outside of the group

setting as well. “We’re all just friends. It has gotten me through some terrible times. I find, just by being with those people, it gets you away from all the drama in your life.” Else says she hopes more people learn about their group, including medical professionals, and realize it’s one way to help prevent loneliness after major life changes.

Pictured here at her previous role at Beacon Community Services, Isobel Mackenzie has now been the province’s seniors advocate for two months. This is work that we all need to do.” As the B.C. Seniors Advocate, Mackenzie said it’s her job to listen to people, their families, caregivers and more about the issues facing seniors. “This office is not a single-issue panel but a permanent position and we’ll have to develop a plan on how to tackle the issues one at a time,” she explained. “I have a lot more travel yet to come and then we’ll take the summer to assess the impacts of what we’ve heard and what issue we are going to tackle first.”

The advocate is tasked with preparing reports to government and the public about immediate or long-term concerns facing seniors in the province. While her recommendations are not binding, they are made public and can have an impact on provincial policy. Mackenzie said people have been grateful that her office has been created and noted it’s a long-term commitment to help address issues in the province. “People are expecting I will be able to give voice to their concerns, making them public and reaching the gov-

ernment as well.” One of her biggest surprizes while traveling the province this spring has been learning about the high costs of medical travel from the interior to specialists in the lower mainland. “Living on the Island, I didn’t quite appreciate the hardship on people,” she said, adding she heard many stories from many different places about the costs to see medical specialists – and the desire to find a way to reduce those impacts for necessary treatment. Mackenzie will be hearing more from seniors this month. She resumes a busy travel schedule this week, visiting Kamloops, Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, Penticton, Castlegar, Cranbrook and White Rock. She plans on meeting with local officials as well as seniors and will tour housing and care facilities. e r i c

Acknowledging hearing loss can be a huge psychological hurdle. The hearing aid discussion can be less daunting when you know what questions to ask. A full audiological evaluation, not a quick screening is essential. How much hearing loss is present, whether one ear hears better than the other and where the hearing loss is, are necessary pieces of information for hearing aid discussion. Whether the clinic is independent or owned by a particular hearing aid manufacturer is important to establish. Independent clinics will work with a wide variety of manufacturers to best fit your hearing loss as opposed to just working with one manufacturer. There are different technology levels with subsequent price differences. Hearing the television better or improving conversation in quiet may be better suited to one level of technology versus someone who is a socially active, attends important meetings or are often in groups or background noise. More expensive does not necessarily mean best suited for your lifestyle. Dexterity is also important. Difficulty moving fingers and joints may dictate one style over another as well as the size of battery needed. Another discussion is fully automatic hearing aids that adjust to the environment on their own versus ‘customization’ allowing you to control the volume and environment. Lastly, “one hearing aid or two” is a common discussion. Eyes work together for depth perception, ears do the same for sound. However there may be reasons why only one hearing aid is appropriate. There are many questions to discuss with your audiologist and at McNeill Audiology questions are always welcome.

Questions to Ask When Getting Hearing Aids for the First Time

It takes a long time to become young. W Aw in ar ni d ng !

In her travels around the province, the newly-minted seniors advocate for British Columbia has received an earful from people explaining they sometimes feel frustrated about ageism. Isobel Mackenzie, named B.C.’s first seniors advocate two months ago, says many seniors are tired of other people telling them what they should be doing as they grow older. These are people who have lived their lives in their own way, she said, and now that they are older, some are facing changes being imposed on them from society and even various levels of government. “Yes, we all have an obligation to talk about age issues, such as mobility,” Mackenzie said. “But for some of these people, there’s a sense that they are being told – or forced – to do things that is not what they want.” She said these people have differences like

anyone else, and what might be right for one person, isn’t necessarily correct for another. “Many people still want to be able to take care of themselves,” she continued. “They want the tools to be able to do that.” The seniors Mackenzie has heard in places like Prince George, Terrace, Kelowna and the lower mainland, expressed the desire to have better access to things like transportation and housing, with continued challenges in being able to afford dental care and prescription drugs. All this while continuing to be active members of the community. Mackenzie said many seniors volunteer and even continue to work in their communities. Losing their contribution, she added, would be a blow to the provincial economy. “These issues run throughout all levels of government – from sidewalks being cleared in the winter and affordable housing to access to home care nurses and cleaning services.

Aside from the 6-speed manual, Subaru offers their version of a Continuously Variable Transmission, aka the Lineartronic CVT.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK!

Safety Tip: This early summer weather means more cyclists on the road, so as a driver shoulder checking is very important – especially when making right hand turns at intersections, before pulling away from a curb and before you open your vehicle door.

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Friday, June 13, 2014 

DrivewayBC.ca

Finishing touches for a magnificent Mustang installation of original Ford front disc-brakes; these are a must in today’s traffic. Collector vehicle drivers are very cautious. Invariably when accidents occur, it is the drivers around you that are not paying attention or cutting you off. 360 have done their research and paid a lot of attention to detail during this rebuild, right down to avoiding the temptation of installing an exhaust

Our classic and collector car expert continues today with the third part of his four-part series on the restoration of public relations executive Laura Ballance’s rare 1967 Ford Mustang. The Mustang T5 body shell has been painted, clear coated, wet-sanded, recleared and finally polished to a show quality finish. Now comes the fun part of a restoration, the reassembly, opening boxes and fitting all of those new parts. This is as close as you can get to being a car factory assembly line worker except you are doing every task instead of just one, and you have all the time that is needed and you don’t have to work to the speed of a moving production line. One of the upgrades that the T5 will receive is a new product designed to dampen and suppress the driveline and road noise, making the inner cabin as quiet as possible and a bit like a modern car. The foil-covered pads have a peel-off backing and are adhered to every inner sheet metal panel such as the roof, floor, doors and

bulkhead. The next step is to install the new wiring harness; old wiring harnesses become brittle over time due to heat and corrosion at the joints and terminals, ask the owner of any British sports car from that era! The interior has been completely renewed from top to bottom staring with the headliner, trim panels, carpets and dash pads and the seats have all been reupholstered. Before the new back glass and windshield are installed (all of the other glass panels have been replaced) the new vinyl top is installed. Installing a vinyl roof is not a task that is performed very often these days, but

360 have the skills to do this in-house. LKQ stocks a huge selection of high quality muscle car sheet metal and parts. “If you are doing a premium muscle car restoration the only sheet metal you want to use is from LKQ,” said Rick Francoeur at 360. The exterior panels will soon have their final fitting. They have been fitted and removed during the restoration process countless times to make sure that the panel gaps are correct. The final fitting process will involve two or three people to make sure that the paint does not get chipped or damaged. Before the original V-8

engine was removed from the car it underwent a compression check, all of the cylinders had equal and strong readings so a complete re-build was not necessary. The carburetor has been replaced with a new two-barrel, the automatic transmission has been completely re-built, as has the rear axle. Rick talked Laura out of fitting a modern rack and pinion power steering kit or even upgrading the manual steering box to a power-assisted unit so it will be reliving the Armstrong steering experience for Laura when parking at low speeds! One safety upgrade is the

system with two tailpipes. Next week, we will explore what exactly a T5 is; how rare they are and explore some of the events that Laura and her brand new old car will attend in this 50th anniversary year of the Ford Mustang. Nigel Matthews is the director of sales and marketing for Hagerty Insurance Canada. nmatthews@ hagerty.com

there are no carry-over body panels. A domed hood, bigger grille and new headlamps also give this Escape a slightly more aggressive look and it has better off-road attributes in terms of approach, breakover and departure angle capabilities. A base front-drive Escape XLS is powered by a 2.3-litre engine. Moving up a step, the XLT trim allowed a 3.0-litre V6 option and a tow package that bumped trailer-hauling capability to 1,588 kg (3500 lb). The top-line Limited came with leather, dual climate control air conditioning and Audiophile sound system, more power features, and the V6 engine. Four-wheel-drive was an option with every trim level. If an urban commute is your vehicles primary job and good fuel economy is important there’s also a hybrid version of the Escape. It has a smoother and quieter powertrain than the first generation Escape Hybrid,

While stability control was standard on all gas-engine versions of the ’08 Escape, it wasn’t available on the Hybrid. Same story for a related new safety feature on the ’08, called Roll Stability Control. Both of these important active safety features were made standard on the ‘09 and newer Escape Hybrid. The Escape Hybrid is a full hybrid and capable of running purely on electric power up to about 40 km/ hour. It also uses a continuously variable transmission. The 2010 model year brought trim upgrades to Escape and all models got standard Blind Spot Mirrors.

Resale prices are reasonable and there’s typically a good supply of used Ford Escape models out there.

Paint that Nissan clean

Washing a car can be a chore and a costly one at that. In response, Nissan in Europe has begun tests on innovative paint technology that repels mud, rain and everyday dirt, meaning drivers may never have to clean their car again. The specially engineered super-hydrophobic and oleophobic paint, which repels water and oils, has been applied to the all-new European market Nissan Note to create the world’s first self-cleaning car. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

It’s been many years since the key organizer of the Mad Catter’s Tea Party cat show first began to breed Maine Coons and just one since she gave it up. Lifelong animal lover Gillian Huber was breeding Scottish Deer Hounds at the time when the sight of what

she considers the manliest of all feline varieties caught her eye at a show and sent her husbandry in a different direction. That path led her to leading the nowdefunct Island Cat Fanciers and eventually yielded a shimmering star of the cat show circuit, Ché Purrie’s El Bandito of Hu-King, or Bandit, who after 13

years as a show champion – supreme grand champion, to be exact – left this world and took with him Huber’s desire to continue working with the breed. She had already seen the best. “He loved people,” says Huber, from behind the counter of Huber’s Lock and Safe, where she sells security products and prize ribbons, including an in-progress batch to be awarded at Mad Catter’s. “He loved the whole show bit. He just did it. He embraced the whole thing.” Huber dusts off a plaque bearing the image of a Maine Coon with its eyes squinted shut and its head cocked cheerfully to one side. Even after he retired from show business, recognized for exemplifying both breed standards and charisma, the little guy in the photo wasn’t ready to leave the lifestyle behind. “He used to put himself in my bag when I was packing to go to another show. ... He just kept doing it. He just kept winning shows. One time I picked up the carrier. There was supposed to be one cat in it and I couldn’t believe how heavy it was. I looked in and he was in there, too. He was my love.” Huber’s voice quivers with emotion as she revisits some of Bandit’s career highlights. Though she has lost the embodiment of her love, she’s far from lost her love for showing cats. Aided by co-organizer Susan Marshall, Huber remains a driving force behind the show, set to take Mary Winspear Centre June 21 and 22. About 125 cats of different breeds compete in their individual class against one another in five rings for judges’ honours, each accumulating points towards recognition that weekend and at year end regionals. Just as with dog shows, particular protocols are in place and the competition can be fierce. Unlike its canine

Tilly, an Abbyssianian kitten. The Mad Catter’s Tea Party cat show takes place June 21 and 22 at the Winspear Centre. counterpart, cat shows are also a place where judges are often seen chatting with curious spectators and cat lovers of all stripes are welcomed to (register) and compete in the household pet category. “You see all sorts of everyday, normal pets: some with bent ears; domestic short hair; long hair, cross-breed,” Marshall says. “Anybody that has a cat sitting around their house can show as a household pet. ... It’s a fun competition for people who want to go out with their kitty and think their kitty is the best kitty in the world.” Considering taking that plunge? Bring the cat out young, and at least give it a bath. If there’s a chance Fluffy will bite a judge, maybe leave her at home, Huber says. Some of the breeders will bring enough tension regardless. “You get people who are what we call ‘campaigners’ and they’re out for blood,” Marshall says. “They want that win, but for the most part, we want to see new exhibitors come, have a good time, feel welcome, get their kids involved. We like to think of cat shows as a family event, something the entire family can get involved in, or at least come to and enjoy.” The show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $6 for adults, $3 for kids 12 and free for children up to 5. See marywinspear. ca for more information. arts@mondaymag.com

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Friday, June 13, 2014 

Celtic Vespers celebrate Father’s Day ORCCA something to sing about NORTH SAANICH — With deep Asturian and Breton roots, Canadian born Qristina and Quinn Bachand have quickly emerged at the top of the international Celtic music world, winning 2010 Top Traditional Group and 2011 Top Duo at the Irish Music Awards. Since 2009 the duo have also received three Canadian Folk Music Award nominations, a 2012 Western Canadian Music Award nomination for World Recording of the Year and four 2013 Vancouver Island Music Award nominations, winning the Award for Young Performer of the Year. Known for her expressive and passionate fiddling style, Qristina is a consummate performer

who is clearly at ease on stage. She captivates audiences with a spirited performance that showcases not just her fiddling and vocal talents, but also her energy and her love of Celtic music. As a vocalist, Qristina enjoys performing a repertoire of original and traditional songs that bring out deep emotions with which people can easily relate. With diverse musical talents and a bottomless pool of creativity Quinn is recognized as the “Young lion” of the Celtic guitar (Daniel Lapp) and “Canada’s top Celtic guitarist” (Ashley MacIsaac). His virtuosic playing is more than eye-catching fret-board fireworks. A gifted and creative guitar player, Quinn adds a con-

temporary edge to traditional Celtic music. Quinn is also an in-demand sideman who has toured nationally and internationally, performing with Canadian fiddling icons Ashley MacIsaac and Natalie MacMaster. The Celtic Vespers service begins at 7 p.m. on Sunday, June 15 at St. John’s United Church (10990 West Saanich Rd.) in Deep Cove. There is no admission charge. An offering will be taken to cover the cost of the musicians and the Vespers program.  For further information, call 250-656-5273 or email eve.kerr@ telus.net to be included on an email list of upcoming concerts. — Submitted

SIDNEY — Almost everyone has experienced some type of dental or oral problem in their lifetime. Now, imagine that you’re one of the close to 50,000 people living in poverty in the Capital Regional District and you don’t have the means or resources to fix those problems. Under the leadership of Kenny Podmore and Travis Stewart, local community members are presenting benefit concert to support dental care for children and youth from low income families. On June 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. the free concert, ORCCA Sings, will take place at the end of Beacon Avenue at the bandshell and proceeds from the concert will go to ORCCA (Oral Care for Children and Adolescents), a non-profit dental clinic in Sidney Elementary School.

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.

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.

NEWS REVIEW

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.

Q: WHAT ARE SOME TIPS FOR SELLING MY HOME DURING THE SUMMER? Mow your lawn regularly – If you’re watering regularly, grass grows especially fast when the hot sun is beating down so make sure to keep it trim and tidy. Trim bushes and plant flowers if you have time and look into painting your house number on your curb. Keep it bright inside – Increase the perceived size of the home by opening it up, removing heavy drapes and pulling all your blinds up. The nose knows – Sometimes air fresheners can work against you. Vanilla can smell great, but it can overwhelm if not used sparingly. If needed, consider natural fragrances such as cut roses, flower petals.

SELLER’S TIP | Unless you’re motivated, don’t expect buyers to beat down your door in summer

Market heading into summer with a bang Balanced market good for buyers, sellers: VREB prez Don Descoteau News staff

When the numbers show continued growth in the real estate market, it’s hard not to be excited. May’s sales figures for the Greater Victoria region showed the best numbers since 2010, according to Victoria Real Estate Board president and active agent Tim Ayres. But the best of 2014 may well be yet to come. “I haven’t seen a start to June like this in a while,” he said this week, when asked for his thoughts on the state of the local market. “It’s healthy.” Forget the old expression about March coming in like a lion. Early sales for this month have local agents on pace to knock out the June 2013 numbers. That said, Ayers and others continue to describe the Capital Region housing market as “balanced,” meaning neither buyers nor sellers have the upper hand in negotiations. “It’s one of those funny markets,” he said. “You don’t really have the buyers beating down your door. At the same time, we don’t really see an end to the busy season.” From a cost perspective, prices are remaining fairly constant, with only a one-per-cent upward blip in the region’s benchmark price for a typical home. With no pressure up or down on

The selection of single family homes on the Greater Victoria real estate market is good, but well-priced, well-shown homes continue to sell quickly and command prices closest to asking price. price, and interest rates remaining low, there’s less chaos in the market and agents have more time to spend working with buyers to ensure they find a home that is the right fit, Ayers said. “Whether you’re a Realtor or a seller, you want to be sure the buyer wants your property. There’s less complications that way.” Bill Ethier, president of Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty, noted that when it’s a buyers or sellers’ market, it’s usually a sign that something not

so good is on the horizon. Having a balanced market helps “put confidence back in the marketplace,” he said. “These times are like a nice, stoked fire going along nicely,” Ethier said. “Buyers have a chance to look around and take time and be cautious, but at the same time we’re seeing multiple offers, like any market, if it shows well and is priced well, it’s going to go quickly.” He said the $450,000 to $600,000 price range continues to be the

sweet spot for sales in the region. Helping keep the market on an even keel is the absence of impending regulatory changes, such as the shorter amortization periods from late 2012 that prompted many people to jump into the market quickly ahead of that change.
