Barrie Keefe, president of the Saanich Fusion FC soccer association, stands outside the organization’s Gordon Head clubhouse at Tyndall Park. The soccer club is asking neighbours to keep an eye out for mischievous behaviour, as the field and clubhouse have been vandalized in two separate incidents in the past six months, costing the not-for-profit community soccer club thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs. Travis Paterson/News staff
Vandals wreak havoc on Gordon Head pitch Saanich Fusion soccer field damaged twice in six-month period Travis Paterson News staff
Vandals struck at Saanich Fusion FC’s Tyndall Park turf soccer pitch and clubhouse for the second time in six months earlier this month. During the night of Saturday, June 7, a table was destroyed, the clubhouse barbecue was tipped over and damaged, and garbage was strewn about the grounds at 4368 Tyndall Ave. Some of the sponsor
signs along the fence were defaced with unsavoury language. “A door to storage had been left unlocked, unfortunately, allowing (the vandals) access to equipment and more than a hundred soccer balls which were kicked all over the place,” said Fusion president Barrie Keefe. It’s the second time Tyndall has been targeted in about six months. Both incidents were reported to Saanich Police. “We had a previous incident at Christmastime. Someone used a knife to cut three of our soccer nets off. They were thrown about, one of them onto a stop sign along Tyndall Avenue,” Keefe said. The nets cost up to $400 each to replace, he added.
“Generally speaking we don’t any have problems because there’s so often one or another type of user group providing security here.” - Barrie Keefe
There was also a significant slash to the artificial turf, which has to be repaired by a qualified worker to retain the 15-year warranty. “It means bringing someone over from Vancouver at our own cost to sew the turf up properly,” Keefe said. “Generally speaking we don’t any have problems because there’s so often one or another type of user group providing
security here,” Keefe said. “Hopefully the neighbourhood will heighten its awareness of any suspicious activity.” Saanich police Sgt. Steve Eassie says there haven’t been any other notable vandalism incidents reported in the area. He recommends residents remain vigilant and report any suspicious people or activity. The clubhouse and turf field are flanked by houses along the south side. But the property becomes quite dark when the lights go out at 10 p.m. If anyone has information or knows of any similar incidents that have occurred in the area, they can call Saanich police at 250-475-4321. email@example.com

Cougar sightings ‘not unexpected’ Saanich police warn of animals’ presence Travis Paterson News staff
Cougar season is here and Saanich police want to remind residents that we’ve successfully co-existed with the predatory animals with few incidents for years. A sighting late Saturday night prompted a Cordova Bay woman to report the animal’s whereabouts, around Wesley Road and Alvarado Court at 11:30 p.m. “With large tracts of space and greenbelts just beyond Cordova Bay, it’s not unexpected to see them there,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. “Nearby is a large number of natural food sources, including deer, for example.
“The concern for people is when the animal begins acting like a predator or is targeting animals or people. In this case it was just traveling through the area.” Earlier this month, on June 7, there were two sightings reported from residents living near the Cedar Hill Golf Course. “At 7 a.m. there was a reported cougar on the golf course, then in a backyard at 9 a.m. A place like Cedar Hill is surrounded entirely by residences. Cougars aren’t expected to be there so that’s where there can be some concern. But there are deer there so, again, cougars have reason to be there.” Eassie cautions visitors to the trails and remote areas of Saanich to use common sense when travelling in those areas, make noise and keep small animals and children nearby. firstname.lastname@example.org

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: email@example.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

Time for change and advocacy Dear Education Minister Peter Fassbender and BC Teachers’ Federation President Jim Iker: It is time to change the way we do business in education. The current process for settling labour matters and funding the education system is not working. Over the past number of years, there has been an almost constant political battle between the two entities you represent. We need you to find another way to settle your differences. As parents, we are invited constantly to take one side or the other. We are subjected to a deluge of information telling us everything from “we have one of the best education systems in the world” to “our system is deteriorating drastically.” We see the effects of this ongoing dispute on a daily basis in our schools. Students are put in the middle of the battle and relationships between parents
and teachers are tested. Some students are identified as being the proximate cause of our need for more resources and are being targeted as the reason that the needs of other students are not being met. We profess to believe that all students belong in the classroom but our system operates in ways that do not support this principle. We talk about the terrific potential of our students but we identify and label them based on what we perceive to be their weaknesses. We do not find the current situation acceptable. As the primary advocates for our children, it is clearly time for us to become more engaged in our education system. Moving forward, the following are some of our key priorities: 1. We will advocate for a funding formula that protects student services and classroom
supports. 2. We will advocate for and seek an active voice on issues related to learning conditions. 3. We will advocate for appropriate classroom resources for all our children and our schools. 4. We will advocate for structures and processes that align with our core beliefs. 5. We will advocate for an active parent/teacher/student partnership to ensure that each and every student’s strengths are optimized and that each and every student’s needs are met. 6. We will advocate for a positive and collaborative school culture where the voices of students, staff and parents are all included and where the rights of everyone are understood and protected.

Taxpayers deserve better bang for buck in schools The government continues to put the needs of a few ahead of the needs of the many. While mixed composition classrooms may benefit a few students, the negative affects are felt by many other students, teachers, parents, and taxpayers. It is time to go back to separate
special needs classrooms, increase regular class sizes, and tell the teachers no more money. I would also like to see teachers’ personal attendance made public. Taxpayers should be entitled to their employees performance. Darren Garner Saanich

A courageous young man remembered Celebration of life for former Lambrick student on Thursday Don Descoteau News staff
In the difficult few weeks since the passing of their son, Zack, at the tender age of 18, Tania and Wayne
Downey have been floored by the outpouring of support from people around their various communities. “I didn’t really realize the impact Zack and our journey had on people until he passed away,” Tania said. “We’re just blown away, to be quite honest.” Zack, who had been a student at Lambrick Park secondary in Saanich, died May 25 after a long battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a form

of cancer that affects the lymphatic system. A celebration of life will be held tomorrow (June 19) at The Q Centre from 1 to 4 p.m. The site was an easy choice, not only for the expectation of 1,000 or more mourners, but because West Shore Parks and Recreation was the hub of Zack’s sports life growing up in Langford, Tania said. “He played basketball and lacrosse there, rode his bike on the BMX track, played on the soccer field, played ice hockey in the rink.” While he remained a huge basketball fan to the end, baseball was his passion. He was a member of the Victoria Mariners midget team and attended the baseball academy at Lambrick Park. He had already begun eyeing potential colleges for a baseball scholarship by the time he was diagnosed in Grade 11, in November of 2012. The news, and the resulting treatment – it lasted 16 months – set him back somewhat, Tania said, but his determination really kept him going. His simple goal, after being told in March that his cancer was incurable, was to make it to his high school graduation ceremony. He missed it by about a week. “Right up to the last, he was

optimistic that he’d get there,” his mom said. While Zack was weakened from treatments, she said, “all he wanted was to go to school, be with his friends and sit in a class, those simple things that people take for granted. He wanted that so bad during treatment.” While the family, including daughter Brooklyn, 14, has received an overwhelming amount of well-wishes and condolences around the school, baseball and general communities, that hasn’t told them anything they didn’t already know about their son. “We always knew how great a
kid Zack was,” Tania said. “He went through this amazing battle very stoically. We are so proud of him as a family and we do hope that he’s made a little bit of a difference in everybody’s life he touched. He’s a pretty amazing kid and will be missed greatly.” While their grief is still very much at the surface, she said, the Downeys hope that at some point they’re able to help other families who may be going through similar situations. “Our community was there for us and we’re so grateful for that.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Saanich trades student earns national attention Kyle Slavin News staff
Sara Wilson is 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 the 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, figure out how 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.” Wilson was nominated by Local 276 of the Sheet Metal Workers International Association to represent Vancouver Island at the competition in Windsor, Ont. Competing against 10 other apprentices – all men – participants had a drafting test, theory exam and a building component to complete in just two days. “It was stressful,” she said. “I didn’t think I would’ve done so well, but they called my name for second place and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face.” MacDonald says more and more women are taking the trades programs at Camosun, specifically in the last couple of years. “It’s taken a while to get to that point. It’s not perfect, but it’s getting better,” he said about the gender balance in the trades. “A lot of (women) really have an affinity for working with their hands, once they (find) they can do the work. It might be because sheet metal is a little bit more creative.” According to the 2011 National Household Survey, only 5.9 per cent of tradespeople in Canada are women. And 98.1 per cent of sheet metal workers in the country are men. The numbers don’t bother Wilson, who says she’s treated just like any other employee at Victoria Shipyards. “Ninety-nine per cent of the guys don’t mind you’re there, as long as you’re working hard,” she said. The best part, Wilson said, is following a career path she’s proud of, and going to a job she truly enjoys. “Every day in a coffee shop is the same – it’s all repetitive. But working with your hands, actually building something, it’s always different and you leave at the end of the day with a concrete result,” she said. “I love that.” To learn more about Camosun’s trades programs, visit camosun.ca/ learn/areas/trades-apprenticeships. html. firstname.lastname@example.org

United Way ‘invests’ $4.9M into Greater Vic United Way is investing $4.9 million to a network of social services serving Greater Victoria’s most vulnerable citizens. The contribution is focused on addressing the region’s pressing social issues related to children, poverty and building a “strong and caring community,” said the United Way of Greater Victoria in a press release.

Competitive cyclist Katie Rushton won’t join her Russ Hay’s Accent Inns teammates at the Canadian National Championships in Quebec next week, but is instead focusing on B.C. Super Week on the Lower Mainland in early July.
It’s been a strong season for the Russ Hay’s Accent Inns Cycling Team as its riders are now gearing up for the Canadian National Championships, June 26-29 in Lac-Megantic, Que. Reigning national time trial champion Curtis Dearden is looking to repeat and though he’s had some disappointing results this spring, the course looks to be in his favour. “Curtis suffered a setback at the B.C. Time Trials last week, finishing third, (but) it’s added motivation for fine tuning,” said RHAI team manager Jon Watkin, a former elite cyclist and Saanich resident. “In terms of the national time trial course, this year’s course is even more suitable towards his strengths than last year. It was rolling hills in 2013, but this year’s is flatter, and that’s where Curtis excels.” Dearden will be joined by four RHAI teammates: Dylan Davies, who won the Bastion Criterium of the Robert Cameron Law Series on June 1; Cody Canning, who won the B.C. Road Cycling championship as the second overall finisher in the Robert Cameron Law Series Cycling Classic in Metchosin on May 31; Jordan Cheyne, a 23-year-old on the path to going pro; and Dylan Cunningham. Another Saanichite, Anika Todd, is eyeing up a
return to the podium where she surprised many by winning silver in the 2013 national time trial championship. It was just her first year of competitive racing. Todd is a rookie again this season, racing pro for TIBCO, currently the top-ranked team on the United States’ National Racing Calendar. She’ll be racing all three events at the national championships, the time trial, road race and criterium. It’s been a season of transition for RHAI’s Katie Rushton, as the 28-year-old is adjusting to life as a competitive cyclist. The former national team field hockey player is focusing on B.C. Super Week, July 4-13 in the Lower Mainland.

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.

nizes the treaties are part of his nation’s history, and he felt it was important to stand with the museum in acknowledging their significance. “A lot of people forget we did sign treaties here,” Sam said. “There is some back and forth over whether we honour them or want to forget about them. We’re in court right now battling over one of our Douglas treaties, but it is important for us to acknowledge them.” The Songhees and
Esquimalt First Nations filed separate lawsuits covering 376 acres in Saanich’s Cadboro Bay in 2012, a matter still before the courts. The latest announcement coincides with UNESCO’s annual general meeting, held in Victoria for the first time last week. UNESCO officials met with Sam and Esquimalt Chief Andy Thomas, and the original Douglas Treaties were brought from the B.C. Archives to the Songhees Wellness Centre during a community dinner earlier
this month. “I believe that’s the first time they’ve ever left the building,” Lohman said. Sam said the community dinner provided a chance for UNESCO officials to learn about Songhees Nation traditions and aspirations with their new conference centre at 1100 Admirals Rd. Lohman said he’s still awaiting word on whether the Douglas Treaties will receive world heritage status from UNESCO’s Memory of the World com-
mittee in France. “We have such great diversity of living heritage here through First Nations living languages,” he said. “My sense is that B.C. should and must lead Canada in a new recognition of intangible cultural heritage.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Two boys who developed a skin reaction from a plant species they were clearing near their school earlier this month can feel lucky it wasn’t giant hogweed. The plants in question, which had grown in a Garry oak meadow, turned out to be cow parsnip, or Heracleum maximum. It’s a native species and member of the carrot family that has mild photoreactive properties, meaning its secretions can cause minor irritation or blistering in people with more sensitive skin. Cow parsnip, although generally much smaller and featuring different physical characteristics, resembles giant hogweed. That invasive species contains a highly toxic sap on its leaves and stem hairs which can cause hypersensitivity to the sun if contacted on the skin. Both have umbrella-like clusters of white flowers at the end of long stems, but the leaves are different and hogweed can grow to five or six metres high, compare to a maximum of about two metres for cow parsnip.

The leaves of the giant hogweed, left, are distinctly serrated, while those of the native cow parsnip, right, tend to be threepronged, almost like a maple leaf. Rachelle McElroy is executive director with the Saanich-based Coastal Invasive Species Committee, which works with municipal and regional jurisdictions to combat invasive species here. She said one of their subcontractors visited the school and treated the plants with a herbicide, a rare move given that cow parsnip is native, but one taken due to the reaction it caused. While the boys did suffer some discomfort, she said the incident – and the time of year – provide a good opportunity to learn the difference between cow parsnip and the giant hogweed, and to identify other invasive species or potentially harmful plants. “I think the message here is that not all plants are created equal,” she said. “It’s important, as part of environmental educa-
tion and to know for yourself, about certain types of plants.” Private property owners are responsible for taking care of their own land, McElroy said. On public land, the various municipal and regional jurisdictions, working with Coastal ISC contractors, have combined to do a good job of controlling hogweed in the region, she said. While her group fields many calls at this time of year from people either reporting hogweed or asking questions about what they might have discovered, most often the plant in question is cow parsnip or one of several similar looking native plants.
