Puzzling Padmore death case returns to court Laura Lavin News staff

Project fills generation gaps Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

When tasked with filtering information from a senior for a school project, three pre-teen girls didn’t expect to make a new friend. But Rielle Bohnet, 12, Sam McKinlay, 11, and Eden Marshall, 12, talk of Audrey Bruce, 88, almost as if she is a pal. Perhaps that’s because they came to know her as a person, recreating “A Day in the Life of Audrey Bruce” for their top-marked project at Monterey middle school. As part of the intergenerational project

to both educate and celebrate the school’s 100th year, three classes of students made their way to Monterey recreation centre to meet with seniors in the Craft Carnival and iPad clubs. When Karen MacEwan, vice principal at the middle school brought the idea to Lesely Cobus, co-ordinator at the rec. centre it was a no-brainer. “I embraced it absolutely,” Cobus said. “So often life gets divided up to different ages and stages, but the bottom line is we all have one life. We need to share the joys and trials. There’s so much to be learned from people that have ‘been there done

that.’” Approaching a stranger is tough enough when you’re 12, but proposing a school project adds to the pressure. Plus there are the preconceived notions and expectations. “I thought I would hate it because I’m a totally shy person. You had to find somebody yourself,” said Bohnet. “It was super awkward but the teacher pushed us. We had a lovely conversation about school.” PLEASE SEE: Friendships formed, Page A8

Vancouver police officer Stephen Todd is once again in a courtroom. This time, he is fighting to clear his name after an investigation determined that he used police information to help his cousin, who was being investigated in the Oak Bay death of Owen Padmore, and lied to investigators about what he knew. Padmore, 31, died on Dec. 11, 2001. He had been visiting his mother’s house on Hampshire Road the previous day. At one point, he left the house and when he returned, he had suffered a head injury. His mother called an ambulance, and Padmore later died at Victoria General Hospital. Initially, investigators suspected foul play, but a coroner’s report and witness statements at the time resulted in the death being classified as non-suspicious. The case remained closed until 2008, when Oak Bay police received new information. In 2011, a suspect was arrested for manslaughter but no charges were laid. Last July, it was revealed that Todd had admitted to investigators that his cousin allegedly “made admissions” which were relevant to the investigation. The information received by the office of the police complaint commissioner also alleged “during his March 2011 interview, Todd also admitted that in September 2010, approximately two months after his cousin had made a confession to him, he provided information to his cousin on how to avoid police investigative techniques, including wire taps and surveillance.” Police say one month later, Todd recanted the evidence he gave to homicide investigators. In response to the result of the inquiry, Todd requested a public hearing into the matter. It is being heard this month in Vancouver court by retired B.C. Court of Appeal judge Wally Oppal. editor@oakbaynews.com

Oak Bay boathouse build underway Engineering and piling costs exceed budgeted donations Laura Lavin News staff

Oak Bay Sea Rescue’s boathouse building project is underway, but organizers still need donations to support higher than expected engineering and piling costs. “We are thrilled to announce that we have awarded our Rescue Station project to the Oak Bay Marine Group, and that work will start immediately,” said OBSR society president Terry Calveley. The current boathouse is too small and the rescue boat it houses doesn’t properly fit inside. The boathouse bounces and sways, especially when the water is choppy, requiring people to hold themselves up or risk falling into the water. “We had four different vendors (apply),” said Calveley. “The Oak Bay Marine Group’s proposal was much broader and covered a spectrum of work in terms of responsibility, timing and subcontracting the n Engineering piling.” services: about She is pleased the contract went to a $12,000 local business as well. n Building permit: “The price point was one thing, but about $1,500 the other part, their ability to deliver n Rescue station and the skills that they offered. … It build: $110,000 was a concise proposal.” n Pilings: Building of the station is a major $25,000 to project and milestone for the society. $50,000 “It is not just a ‘boathouse’ – it will have an inside mezzanine level for crew training and rescue triage; and also has a dry, or “ready” room where crew equipment and safety gear will be stored. Additionally, because of the prevailing weather in the marina, three to four new pilings will be required,” said Calveley. While the society has budgeted and saved for the project, the engineering costs are nearly double what was expected. Estimates for the new pilings are also significantly higher than anticipated due to unknowns in the sea bed and the type of pilings required to support the rescue station and dock.  “Realistically, so as to not deplete our operational budget, we find ourselves needing to reach out to supporters to help us with about $30,000 to $40,000 for the piling costs,” Calveley said.

An anonymous donor has come forward to supply bridge financing of the shortfall to enable the society to complete the project this summer, while they complete fundraising for the project.  “In addition, this supporter has offered a matching donation of up to $5,000 of funds raised specifically for this project,” Calveley added. Construction on the boathouse began in early June at the Oak Bay Marine Group site in Ladysmith and, barring any major issues, is expected to be complete in late July.

Year-end strike not about kids B.C. teachers were expected to fall into a full-scale strike yesterday (Tuesday), after the News’ deadline. As local teachers contemplated strike action, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation will use it to exert “maximum pressure” on Students are the the provincial biggest losers government. Should Victoria in union battle decide not to cave in to the BCTF’s demands – which it cannot – and push come to shove, teachers could be out of their classrooms in the final weeks of the school year. That is simply unconscionable, and unethical. Students across the province have already been negatively impacted by three weeks of rotating one-day teacher walkouts in every district. While the government has guaranteed final exam marking and grades, kids undergoing final lessons, year-end review, and in some cases, getting extra help in attaining the best marks possible in final unit tests and exams – top academics and learning challenged alike – have missed vital instructional time. This is certainly not “about the children” as the BCTF insists. This is about a prolonged, self-serving spitting contest between the provincial government and one of the most militant unions in B.C. Staging a full-scale strike in the critical closing frames of a school year would be nothing more than deliberately detrimental for tens of thousands of public school children and teens who have already paid a price in this unacceptable battle. There is nothing about jeopardizing the achievement and enjoyment of this year’s crop of students – especially the Grade 12 grads – that is justifiable in principle or practicality. When this battle finally ends, these kids will be the losers. And that is just wrong. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@oakbaynews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

Instead, she won a majority and now has to implement her pie-inthe-sky promises. Ontario is bracing for a downgrade in its credit rating based on the election result, and is about to go into province-wide bargaining with public service unions who want their share from the Liberal money tree. Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak ran on a plan that sounded similar to the one presented by Christy Clark in 2013: hold the line on spending, balance the budget, reduce the size of government, stimulate job creation. Hudak was rejected for a second time, and resigned the leadership on election night. B.C. voters now have three years to see how the Ontario version of Liberal government plays out, compared to the B.C. Liberal version. For us, much depends on resource development, including forest products, natural gas and other trade with Asia. If all goes well here, B.C. can continue to send transfer payments to the fantasyland of Ontario. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

LETTERS Taxpayers foot the bill for multiple municipalities Here is something to think about as you pay your municipal taxes at the end of June. In the Capital Region we have 91 elected mayors and councillors, 13 city halls, seven police chiefs, 13 fire chiefs, 13 city administrators, and 13 planning departments. Using the data provided by the province for the 2012 fiscal year, the average annual municipal taxes collected by the 13 municipalities in the Capital Region were $883 per capita. The City of Surrey is the same size as the Capital Region and has a total population about 25 per cent higher. It

Show your moral compass Congratulations to Satya Varon and Jesse Beauvilliers for their poignant editorial cartoon in Wednesday’s edition (June 11), and to the Oak Bay News for publishing it. Moral compass? Like them I am hoping mayor and council do follow their moral compasses when it comes to the deer and to their ideas about rampant development. Of course they may claim the printing in the cartoon was too small to read and didn’t get it. But the voters did I am sure. Greg Haskins Oak Bay

Bikini-clad protestor a hard-working woman Tom Fletcher’s June 11 column mentioned a bikini-wearing oil pipeline protestor at the Legislative building in Victoria and wondered who paid her. I am sorry to disappoint him, but no one paid my granddaughter to protest. She made an individual decision to demonstrate her position to protect the land, rivers and oceans. She did use molasses to effectively

simulate oil. She is an intelligent young woman who had the courage to express her beliefs. She also works hard as a server and also makes and sells jewelry. I hope Black Press will encourage Mr. Fletcher to do basic fact checking before spouting his propaganda. Ronald Allen Oak Bay

Failing to plan is planning to fail Views recently expressed in your pages about Oak Bay’s new draft Official Community Plan are untenable both morally and fiscally. Anthony Mears (New OCP may be a developer’s dream, letters, June 6) and Bruce Filan (More people, more problems, letters, June 13) decry the draft’s recommendations that Oak Bay should prepare itself for a modest increase in population, should plan for increased demand for affordable housing and should regulate existing but unpermitted suites, among other provisions. They want to keep out newcomers, stop new housing development and pretend that the pressures to which the draft OCP responds will not happen, so that the “village” quality of life in Oak Bay can be maintained. They fail to recognize that change is already happening, and more will inevitably follow. No responsible government at any level, but especially at the local municipal level, can permit the absence of planning that has marked Oak Bay’s governance in recent years, to continue. The draft OCP explicitly recognizes the existence of many (unregulated and unpermitted) suites in Oak Bay, yet Mr. Mears and Mr. Filan seem to think that turning a blind eye to them will avoid a problem. They ignore the problem of potential municipal liability if a fire

In 2012 the municipal taxes collected in Surrey were $488 per capita. In Oak Bay, in 2012 the municipal taxes collected were $946 per capita. The mayor and council of Oak Bay have decided to protect their fiefdom and to deny you an opportunity to have a vote on municipal amalgamation. Your role has been reduced to paying the bills.

should occur in an unregulated suite. They also ignore the need to increase the municipal tax base, through increased housing stock and development of small businesses, to permit fiscal planning to meet future infrastructure demands. New housing stock and other developments forecast for Oak Bay in the draft OCP will necessitate a more comprehensive approach to planning, regulation and bylaw enforcement. Oak Bay’s current policy of complaintdriven bylaw enforcement (“Power to the Grouch!”) is out of date and patently unfair. So too, is the attitude represented by Mr. Mears and Mr. Filan, that newcomers who cannot afford to buy an existing house in Oak Bay don’t deserve to live here – while those who can afford to buy one and replace it with something larger are not welcome. Who else is not welcome? And what happens to current homeowners who face income constraints and increasing housing costs? The draft OCP faces up to challenges that some residents of Oak Bay might want to ignore, and it does so in a responsible way. It represents a significant step towards more effective local government and deserves thoughtful consideration and support. Alan Breakspear Oak Bay

Sewage debate back on today Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

A marathon CRD Core Area Liquid Waste Management meeting committee resumes today (June 18) where it left off last Wednesday discussing what Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen calls the biggest economic concern for residents right now. “I don’t think there’s any bigger economic issue than this in Oak Bay,” Jensen said. “By not proceeding with this particular plan, determined to be the best and the cheapest, it really puts many Oak Bay households in a position where any new plan would be significantly more expensive and therefore impact their utility costs.” A motion put forward by Esquimalt Mayor Barb

Desjardins to suspend the Seaterra sewage treatment program until January 2015 was discussed in-camera by the CRD’s sewage committee last Wednesday. Esquimalt denied rezoning needed for the projected The CRD’s $788-million Seaterra program is in jeopardy after Esquimalt denied rezoning needed at the McLoughlin Point site, where work was meant to begin before the end of July. Jensen, a proponent of moving forward on the project, said the biggest loss is the funding from the provincial and federal grants. “I think it’s an economic catastrophic event that awaits us if we don’t move forward,” he said. “Certainly my shortterm biggest concern is losing the $500 million that will be

pulled if we don’t submit a plan and have that plan in place by 2020. That’s a grave concern.” He fears the current estimated cost of $450 per household for Oak Bay residents could double or triple as a result. “We’re going to have to look for a way forward,” Jensen said. Those still backing the Seaterra project plan to ask the government again to intervene with a mediator or ask government to override the rezoning denial. Jensen hopes the province will reconsider getting involved, particularly in light of a push from Washington State to move forward with some form of sewage treatment. The CRD meeting is set to resume this morning (June 18). cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Police are on the lookout after a lewd act and no suspect near a school last Wednesday. On June 11 police received a report of a Caucasian man in his 50s wearing only shorts, masturbating on the beach roughly 300 meters north of Glenlyon Norfolk School. A caller told police that the man did not stop the inappropriate behaviour despite the caller walking by and that the man was watching the children on the school grounds. Police checked the area thoroughly but did not find a suspect. No suspects have yet been identified.

News staff

The governor of Washington state is asking Premier Christy Clark to take action and get sewage treatment online in Greater Victoria. In a June 10 letter to Clark, Gov. Jay Inslee said Puget Sound’s 3.5-million residents have been waiting long enough for the province to implement wastewater treatment in the Capital Region. “It is now more than 20 years since your province agreed to implement wastewater treatment in Greater Victoria,” wrote Inslee. “Delaying this work to 2020 is not acceptable.” In 1993, Washington state’s tourism bureau boycotted major conferences and hotel bookings in Victoria to express frustration with raw sewage pumping into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. In 2010, former governor Christine Gregoire supported

B.C.’s bid for the 2010 Winter Olympics with the promise of wastewater treatment in Victoria by 2016. Inslee added King County is directly supporting the Seaterra program by allowing its wastewater division director, Pam Elardo, to sit on the Seaterra commission. “Left unresolved, Victoria’s lack of wastewater treatment has the potential to colour other regional and national issues at a time when our two countries are working to re-establish steady economic growth,” Inslee continued. A motion put forward by Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins to suspend the Seaterra program until January 2015 was discussed in-camera by the CRD’s sewage committee on June 11. That in-camera discussion will is expected to continue today before any decisions are made public, said CRD spokesman Andy Orr. editor@oakbaynews.com

Friendships formed during 100th year concept Continued from Page A1

Actually, they spent a few moments comparing their experiences, two generations apart, at Willows elementary. “I thought old people would be grumpy,” said McKinlay. “She was extremely nice and interesting.” The trio didn’t start as a group, and each girl has a different first memory of meeting and speaking with Bruce. In fact the ‘Day in the Life’ format wasn’t the original project they had in mind. “We formed our whole project around Audrey because she was so interesting,” McKinlay said. “I felt like we had things in common.” “She was easy to work with,” Marshall added. “She had real conversations with us, the most interesting part was interviewing her.” At the recreation centre, the iPad club worked with teacher n A 1940s fun fact Lonn Friese’s Grade these three girls 7 students while the learned: 55 per cent Craft Club worked with of households had Lana Rudd’s Grade 6 indoor plumbing. class. A Grade 7 class, led by teacher Kelly Dodd, connected with 10 seniors from the community, grandparents and neighbours, who volunteered to come to the school once a week for a month. “It was really an experience for me because they wanted to know about my childhood,” said Bruce. “I’ve never lived anywhere else other than Oak Bay, so they had a lot of questions. It was good for my brain to think back that far.” She takes pleasure in the fact that the girls scored an A+ on the project. “They were very gracious. You can hear a lot of facts but if you can’t put it together it can be all smudged,” she said. Bruce saw the display last Wednesday when they invited all of the seniors for tea and to peruse the displays, watch video projects and even do a little old-timey dancing. “I was totally floored. I’m going back to my childhood and I thought it would be a written report,” Bruce said. “It was really an experience and enlightening situation for me to see how these children just mingled and were interested. It was very exhilarating, I learned a lot from them.” The girls created a timeline of a typical day for Bruce as a teen in the 1940s. Bohnet enjoyed looking up old advertisements and pulling up archival photos of Oak Bay for her booklet, while Marshall and McKinlay took a creative nonfiction approach to pen journals for both a weekday and weekend. “This was a wonderful way to build community and connect generations, bridge that generation gap,” said Mayor Nils Jensen, after the event. “It was wonderful to see the kids and seniors connecting. It was just such wonderful community project. The enthusiasm and joy in that room was just incredible. It was very uplifting … We have great kids that are going to be great stewards for our future.” cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Rielle Bohnet, 12, Sam McKinlay, 11, and Eden Marshall, 12, enjoy writing notes on the back of a portion of their project to give to Audrey Bruce as a memento. Christine van Reeuwyk/ News staff

OCP tweaks in the works Expected growth scaled back in draft document Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Tweaks in language, spelling and terminology dominate alterations to the draft Official Community Plan for Oak Bay as it heads toward public hearing this fall. Council made a handful of official alterations June 9 as part of the OCP review process Mayor Nils Jensen says, “isn’t a sprint. It’s a series of marathons.” Two larger changes are in direct response to comments heard at the final public open house late last month. One small number equates to one large change. The expected growth, stated at one per cent throughout the early portion of the official community plan review process, will revert back to .5 per cent. That number reflects the expected growth in both the current OCP and the Regional Growth Strategy. A .5 per cent annual growth would mean about 90 new residents or 36 new housing units per year. That relates to the second dominant change, creating clear language to assuage the

concerns over infill building or densification of the community. “The concept of ‘intensive development’ can’t describe Oak Bay in any way,” said Mayor Nils Jensen. “The way we will be using it is to look at the infill possibilities in a very gentle way, but before we get to that stage we have to come to terms with what it would look like. “It’s a tool, a valuable tool, that can’t be used until we have developed housing policies and form policies as to what we want our established neighbourhoods to look like.” The draft OCP is expected

to go to public hearing in September. But the real work, council feels, will begin after the plan is in place. “We have to develop guidelines for that,” Jensen said. “The next step isn’t just to start approving developments … This will create a huge volume of work in the future, but will benefit our community and neighbourhoods in the long run.” cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

More jobs expected over summer Brush the dust off that resume – Greater Victoria employers are expected to do more hiring this year, according to the latest Manpower Employment Outlook Survey. “Survey data reveals that 23 per cent of employers plan to hire for the upcoming quarter (July to September), while seven per cent anticipate cutbacks,” said Jeff Polkinghorne of Manpower’s Vancouver office.

upcoming quarter.  “With seasonal variations removed from the data, Victoria and the Capital Regional District’s third quarter Net Employment Outlook of 11 per cent is an increase of six percentage points when compared to the previous quarterly Outlook,” said Polkinghorne. “It is an eight percentage point decrease from the Outlook reported during the same time last year, but still indicates a hopeful hiring pace for the upcoming months.” editor@oakbaynews.com

New leader takes helm of OBMG  Peter Ciceri steps into some legendary shoes this July, as he takes over the Oak Bay Marine Group of Companies as chief executive officer.  After many years as a successful CEO, corporate director, and international executive, Victoria-based international businessman Ciceri has a successful private practice as an executive coach and corporate director, helping CEOs build through effective leadership and management practices. “Peter brings a wealth of experience to the table and we are delighted to have him aboard” said Director Sharon Halkett. “As we continue to build

upon Bob Wright’s legacy, Peter’s guidance will be a tremendous asset to the management team.” Wright started the company in 1962 with the Oak Bay Marina and was a true west coast entrepreneur, eventually operating a diverse array of businesses in three countries. Wright was known to be singularly focused on his business empire until his death in April of last year. The Oak Bay Marine Group employs approximately 600 people and operates world class resorts, marinas, and tourist attractions in Canada, the United States, and the Bahamas. reporter@oakbaynews.com

Lifetime of memories stolen on camera The Oak Bay Police investigated a number of thefts from vehicles in the South Oak Bay area over the past week. A number of items were reported stolen from a variety of cars in a two block radius on June 11, but one theft was significant in monetary, as well as sentimental, value. A Nikon D70s digital SLR with a Nikkor telephoto lens, several

memory cards and a USB cord, all contained in a black camera bag were stolen. The camera itself, along with the memory cards, contain several hundred photos the owner has collected over time, many of which were to be used in a Ph.D. thesis. “The value of the camera and equipment is considerable, but it’s the hard work and

importance of the info contained in the memory cards that are irreplaceable,” said Community Liaison Officer Const. Rick Anthony. If you have any information regarding these items, please call the Oak Bay Police at 250592-2424 and quote file #141999, or call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). editor@oakbaynews.com

Principal Dave Thomson, left, Jane Lindroos, Ella Van Neutegen, Kieran Atkinson, Mohammed Abousaleh, and Sema Hamidi represent Oak Bay Secondary at the Kiwanis Club of Victoria Annual Student Recognition reception and luncheon held at the Cedar Hill Golf Course club house. The reception is held to recognise students who have taken on leadership roles within their schools and the community.

Kiwanis kudos for giving kids Laura Lavin News staff

Six Oak Bay High students were among 42 students from seven secondary schools honoured by the Kiwanis Club of Victoria at a special reception held at the Cedar Hill Golf Club on June 3. “It is a wonderful event to recognize the students who have gone above and beyond to achieve their own personal goals and to assist others in achieving

theirs,” said Paul DeGagne, Kiwanis director and event organizer. Students chosen have the “giving back” characteristic that Kiwanis embraces and celebrates, he said. This year’s honourees included students from Esquimalt Secondary, Lambrick Park Secondary, Mount Douglas Secondary, Oak Bay High, Reynolds Secondary, Spectrum Community and Victoria High schools. Oak Bay High

students honoured for their academic acheivement include Adam Walton, Jane Lindroos, Ella Van Neutegem, Kieran Atkinson, Mohammed Abousaleh and Sema Hamidi. “The students are informed about the good that Kiwanis and other clubs provide to their communities and suggest that belonging can be both a great way to help and a great way to network as they move into adult life,” said Oak Bay High school principal Dave

Airstreams art headed for the Ave

Oak Bay school jazz finishes untarnished

Eclectic Gallery hosts Vancouver artist Taralee Guild’s exciting exhibition  Airstreams from June 16 to July 19. Guild’s paintings are based on photographs of Airstream, Bowlus and Spartan polished aluminum trailers. Derived from aeronautical design, these mid-20th century companies built streamlined riveted aluminum shells evoking the golden age of flight for the new North American leisure travel industry. Guild’s painting techniques create an object-ground relationship similar to animal mimicry, where the trailer hides in its surroundings by mirroring it. Given the degree of distortion, the metallic surface becomes an arena of forms that slip away from recognition. It’s a complicated pictorial space where abstraction exists within realism. Eclectic Gallery is located at 2170 Oak Bay Ave. Go to eclecticgallery.ca for more information. editor@oakbaynews.com

Travel can often be a deterrent when taking high school students to national competition. So when the National Music Festival hit Vancouver this year, Oak Bay High was ready. “We pretty much qualify every year but don’t always get the chance to go to nationals,” said teacher Jeff Weaver. With gold in hand from the West Coast Jazz Festival in Nanaimo, they headed for the Vancouver competition where a number of students earned individual kudos and the senior jazz band scored silver. “The kids play in quite a high class. They’re considered a Grade 12 band even though they’re in Grade 10, 11 and 12. To achieve a silver at that level is fantastic,” Weaver said. “The kids played really well …

That last was Sammy Nestico’s Margarita from the album Night Flight and drew the most passion from students. “Some of the cooler parts were our soloist awards,” Weaver said.

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Sports & Eye Injuries With the arrival of spring and summer comes a surge of energy and an abundance of outdoor sports. As a result, every year a great number of sport-related eye injuries occur; for example: an elbow in the eye in rugby, a scratch from a fingernail in basketball, or a miscalculation of the path of a fly-ball. Common sports-eye injuries include corneal abrasions, blunt injuries, and penetrating injuries. A corneal abrasion is a scrape to the outer surface of the eye, which is usually painful, but not severe. A blunt injury to the eye, from impact by a ball, fist, or elbow, can result in a black eye, or bleeding of the blood vessels which lie on top of the white, outer portion of the eye. More severe blunt trauma may cause further damage to important eye structures such as the retina or optic nerve, and can result in vision loss. Penetrating injuries occur when an object pierces the eye. Symptoms include vision loss, bleeding on the surface of the eye and foreign objects imbedded in the eye. Prompt treatment is the key to preserving your vision. With most eye injuries, it is best to have them immediately examined by an optometrist. An exception would be something sticking into the eye. Leave the object in place and go directly to Emergency. This summer, when you or your loved ones take to the field, be sure to protect your eyes with appropriate sports eyewear. Though they do not completely eliminate the eye injury, they will greatly reduce it.
