The BC Ferry Powell River Queen departs Campbell River en route to Quadra Island Wednesday afternoon. BC Ferries has announced changes to the schedules for the Campbell River-Quadra Island and Quadra Island-Cortes Island routes effective Feb. 9.
Schedule adjustment ‘falls short’ J.r. rArdon Campbell RiveR miRRoR
Commuters from Campbell River to Quadra Island will soon have their evening sailing back. But a change of schedules announced this week by BC Ferries falls short of addressing the larger problems facing the service, said Jim Abram, chair of the Strathcona Regional District. And it does not restore ferry runs cut last April in a cost-saving move by BC Ferries. “We’re going to have another re-jig after this schedule goes into place,” Abram said. “I’m sure there will be lots of input from the pub-
lic; then we’re going to have to go back to BC Ferries and say, ‘Now what are you going to do?’” Citing feeback from customers and from the Quadra-Cortes Ferry Advisory Committee, BC Ferries will restore one early evening sailing and adjust several other schedules for the Quadra IslandCampbell River and Cortes IslandQuadra Island routes. The changes take effect Monday, Feb. 9. The cornerstone of the new schedule is a shift in the last evening sailing from Campbell River with a Quadra-Cortes connector. That sailing will move from 5:45 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., the same time

slot it held before that route was cut in April of 2014. The corresponding connector ferry from Quadra to Cortes Island will continue to depart at 6:45 p.m., except on weekends, where it shifts forward 20 minutes to 6:25 p.m. Several other sailings will be adjusted by periods ranging from five to 20 minutes, while others are unchanged. The total number of sailings each way does not change. “We’ll go back to a similar schedule to what we had, where we’ll have a lot of the ferries leaving on the half-hour from Campbell River and some leaving on the hour Continued on Pg. 3

There are times when there’s no ferry and times when ferries don’t meet for shift workers.” One other change that could impact late-night riders is a 10-minute shift forward in the final sailing each night. The Friday-Saturday run from Campbell River moves from 10:55 to 10:45 p.m., while the last run from Quadra Island moves from 10:25 to 10:15 p.m. All other nights, the final sailing is at 9:45 p.m. from Campbell River (previously

have the same standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Spooner took over the Campbell River Storm four years ago when the franchise was suffering poor attendance of around 300 people a game and poor on-ice performance. He has since improved the team to the top of the standings in that time and is drawing up to 1,000 spectators a game. He hopes the community will judge him on the positive things he’s accomplished and the positive environment now surrounding the team. “This team and this town means so much to me,” he said. Spooner said although the story has received provincial attention, he has had many calls and emails of support from around B.C.

around sailing and wait times that were experienced with the schedules that went into effect last April, but Abrams said those issues were clear to local riders as soon as they were announced. “They told us if it was found to not be workable, and we need to go to the old schedule and some revisions, it was no problem,” Abram said. “Within a month, we were adamant it wasn’t working, but they said, ‘We want to see how it plays out; we want to wait until after the summer season.’” In a written release, BC Ferries stated it expects
the upcoming changes will provide notable improvements for customers travelling to and from the two islands while still meeting the net cost savings targets established by the Province as part of its service level adjustment process earlier in 2014. T h at gove r n m e nt mandate, for a $185,000 cost savings on the two routes, resulted in the two route cuts. The schedule pages for these two routes have now been updated on bcferries.com and specific sailing times can be viewed on the site’s schedules link.

Any downtown business owners opposed to the renewal of the Heart of the City Business Improvement Area (BIA) have until March 4 at 4:30 p.m. to notify the city. City council will proceed with establishing another five year term for the BIA unless at least 50 per cent of the
owners, who will be subject to a local service tax under the BIA, sign a petition in opposition. Those who sign a petition must also own property that in total, represents at least 50 per cent of the assessed value of land that would be subject to the tax. This tax has been collected by the city from downtown businesses that lie within the BIA boundaries. “The funds raised through the local service tax have enabled the (BIA) to promote the downtown core through marketing and beautifi-

Marilyn Hutchinson, a director with Grieg Seafood, said the company already has a salmon farm in the area that has been in operation for seven years. “Further, Grieg has signed a long-term agreement with the Tlowitsis Tribe, in whose traditional territory all the farms would be located, and enjoys a positive relationship with the nation’s council,” Hutchinson wrote in a letter to city council.

Council takes issue with Canada Post KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
City council is supporting Canadian postal workers who want the federal government to reverse Canada Post’s plans to eliminate doorto-door mail delivery. Council, at its Monday night meeting, endorsed asking the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to request the federal government consult with the public before allowing Canada Post to move forward with the changes. But it may be too little too late. Home delivery has already been scrapped in Calgary, Winnipeg, Fort McMurray, and the Ottawa suburb of Kanata. Still, after receiving a letter from Denis Lemelin, president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, council agreed that more discussion is necessary. Coun. Larry Samson said he has several concerns with Canada Post’s move to not only end home delivery but downsize and close
some post offices. “It’s not only going to have an impact on the employees but the services to our population,” said Samson who added he’s also not happy with “changes on the downloading to our municipalities such as the location of these (community mailboxes) affecting safety as vehicles turn off and stop, and the maintenance and longterm complications of the upkeep of (the mailboxes).” In Campbell River, Canada Post has served notice that it will be converting 8,543 households who still have door-to-door delivery to community postal boxes; that’s expected to take effect this fall. Mayor Andy Adams said Monday night that the previous council did receive a binder full of information informing the city of its intentions and the city was asked for comment. Adams said while he was supportive of council’s motion to ask the federal government to consult with the public
over the changes, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities already dealt with the issue last year. “This was a very hotly debated topic at FCM last June and the majority of FCM delegates voted not to support such a motion,” Adams said, “but I see no harm in putting our concerns forward.” Coun. Charlie Cornfield said he took issue with how Canada Post handled the situation. “I think the communities were left out,” Cornfield said. “What bothered me particularly about how Canada Post has gone about this is I don’t think that they properly consulted with us. I know I’ve received surveys in the mail but it wasn’t about whether I wanted to see boxes or not boxes, but it was how far away do you want your (community mailbox) and that was the sum total of it. “I don’t consider that consultation to find out what we need,” Cornfield added. “I was pretty
disappointed with it and the way it was undertaken.” According to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Canada Post has closed 40 urban and 75 rural post offices since 2012 and more closures are expected. Door-to-door delivery is expected to end to five million Canadian households within the next couple of years which the union says will create problems for seniors and people with mobility issues and will destroy 6,000 to 8,000 jobs. Canada Post also hiked the price of single stamps by 59 per cent on March 31 of last year and the price of buying a book of stamps to 35 per cent. T h e c o r p o r at i o n announced those plans last year, citing financial losses due to a decrease in mail because of increasing use of online services. According to Canada Post, Canadians in 2013 sent nearly 1.2 billion fewer pieces of mail than they did in 2006.

Liberals make camping harder to afford Camping fees, like everything else (MSP, Hydro, ICBC), are going up. The Liberal government has announced that, as of March 15, fees to camp in provincial parks will increase $2 to $5. That might not sound like much, but it’s going to cost $33 a night to sleep on the ground in Miracle Beach Provincial Park. Over a long weekend, that would total $99. Add on the cost of travel, food and other necessities, and camping is no longer a cheap option for young families, or young adults working minimum-wage jobs. According to the MinWe say: Add the istry of Environment, fee hike to that of this is the first provincewide increase in campother services ing fees since 2010. The varied rate increases take into account local demand and economic conditions, as well as private camping availability. The province collected about $17 million from its park and recreation fees last year, while spending $22 million on direct park operating costs. Meanwhile, campsite use is on the rise in B.C. since the introduction of an online reservation service. Discover Camping handled 133,000 reservations last year, nearly a 10 per cent increase over 2013. Campgrounds get families outdoors, together. They are where kids learn to respect nature, to start a fire, where they chop wood and swim in the lake, roast marshmallows and gaze at the stars. They also attract tourists, who spend money in town.

The weather outside was frightful but the end result was delightful! The 41st edition of the Community Christmas Hamper Fund organized by the Knights of Columbus is now a piece of history. In spite of the unkind weather conditions a large number of volunteers appeared on Saturday, Dec. 20 to do the job. The job was the assembling and delivery of 1156 hampers to families and singles in need in Campbell River and surrounding area. Three thousand five hundred and ninety-two people received these hampers 692 of which also contained donated gifts for both children 16 and younger and/or seniors 65 and older. The task could not have been completed without an incredible amount of support from the community at large, local groups, organizations, schools and businesses. Our two local newspapers along with 2dayfm 99.7 played a huge role is making everyone aware of our endeavor. Thanks to the generous and caring citizens and local groups who donated non-perishable food, toys and money to allow us to carry out the task to a “delightful” conclusion.

Contemplating a new Logger Mike My ears perked up much like Coun. Charlie Cornfield’s did at Monday’s council meeting when I first heard they were replacing Logger Mike, the downtown carving that pays tribute to Campbell River’s forestry heritage. What! Not that I’m that sentimental about it but the carving has been there so long and as a newsperson, my radar went off on a potential furore in the making. My Spidey Sense started tingling, so to speak. But alas, it’s not as bad as you might think, although it still has the potential to get everybody’s dander up. There’s still a chance. I guess the idea is that a carver has been lined up and as soon as the city forks over some money, a new Logger Mike will be carved. Because, you see, a time comes in every carving’s life when the ravages of wind, rain and snow become too much for even poly filla to cover. Another coat of shellac just ain’t gonna do it.

The range of imagination on display every summer at the Shoreline Arts Society’s annual chainsaw carving competition is always delightful and awe-inspiring. It just feels funny to think that Logger Mike – who has presided over the daily comings and goings of Campbell Riverites for the last 30 years (why did we let that anniversary pass last year without acknowledgement?) – won’t be up there any more. Sure, they can try and replicate him but it won’t be the same Mike. Will it? This calls for a committee! Although, we all know what happens to things that are designed by a committee. Maybe Mike will be depicted as a Sasquatch transforming into a Saxon fantasy-warrior being picked up by a flaming dragon-eagle with a golden salmon-halibut in its beak! The mind boggles with the possibilities.

Greenwashing creates Article is stone-aged, head-in-the-sand an image of caring YOUR VIEW
Wow! I am ver y offended by the article “Hippy Science is Easy, and Wrong” (BC Views, Wed., Jan. 21). I’m not a Hippy, but I do fully understand the derogatory inference of the opinion in this article. In my understanding of unnecessary ‘hate’ comments, this would be up at the top of the list. After mulling over what I would say to the grossly prejudiced statements made by the author, I can barely bring myself to mention the errors. Really Tom? Reading online, over the incensed remarks of those who had something to say, including a ‘rationalist’ (supposed) person’s retorts. Oh my! The article is stoneaged, head-in-the-sand to say the least. There is way too much s c i e nt i f i c a l l y - b a s e d information out there to dispute this writers hateful remarks on a legitimate, alternative/prevention-based medicine protocol, for an article like this to be deemed acceptable reporting, or
freelance opinion. This was stomping over a scientific area of health that has taken numerous years, and millions of dollars to obtain evidence of harm, from say, pesticides, GMOs, and certain vaccinations – not to mention the large sums of money for those professionals to earn their degrees to research and practice naturopathic medicine. Many people rely on conventional medicine for a good reason. I do. But, I also rely on preventative medicine, as all wise people should do. It is not as some consider – just a fad. Those, who, with prejudice, stomp on that which they haven’t
seriously considered, or desired, have not taken the time to fully understand or implement healthful practices in their lives for optimal health. I truly was embarrassed for the writer of this article. I am pretty sure professionals in the area of naturopathic medicine and research are shaking their heads at this assault. I just don’t know what else to say. Shameful. I feel sorry for the people who may have read the article and been misled, yet could be helped by having knowledge of legitimate, alternative, naturopathic medicine. I would encourage
people to be conscientious of their ability to prevent many illnesses in their lives, with simple every day life style changes, and awareness of some dangerous environmental factors. It’s no secret that we are all challenged with these things. Debbie Williams Campbell River

Move to closed containment
FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 2015 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR | 9
From Pg. 7
other countries producing the same product. In a majority of cases one will find that these are the very same corporations involved in those other countries. There are a variety of reasons why labelling is important to global corporations such as Marine Har vest and others involved in the industry but I will stick with two of the basics. First is marketing of the product and a need to address society?s growing sensitivity to environmental, health, food security and sustainability issues on the subject of food. Using some form of third party certification is of importance as it conveys that there is someone else monitoring the activity of the producer and looking out for your interests. My guess here is that former statements such as this product was produced using “Best Aquaculture Practises” (BAP) just does not seem to cut it anymore.
Second point with respect to the use of third party certifications is to establish a degree of political goodwill in addressing concerns in order to obtain required approvals for new sites to place their farms. Attempt to convince residents, local politicians in a given area of how benign this industry is and that there will be very limited impacts on new area and this has been certified by. If the players involved are truly concerned with wild stock populations, then why are fish farms continually placed on the known migratory routes of our native species of salmon leaving open the real potential risks of transfer of diseases and parasites? Why is there the insistence to introduce a foreign species – dare one say, an invasive species – that will aggressively compete for survival following their escape from open net pens? How can anyone certify it an environmentally-sound practice for
fish farms to introduce antibiotics, pesticides into natural aquatic surroundings, then fill those surroundings with piles of excrement and other waste? The article makes mention of responsible disease management so we are to assume that the attempts to control sea lice problems by dumping bleach (hydrogen peroxide) into the fish pens is both sound environmental procedure and is good animal
husbandry? That statement may not be of particular relevance to the Marine Harvest Marsh Bay site but then again this is the same company who has received provincial government approval to use hydrogen peroxide at its farm sites in Quatsino Sound. I believe that there are some six farms involved with this little known gem. One gets angry with the regular postings from this Industry on
their “gold” standards, highly questionable certifications and it is time we all take a stand and tell them to grow up and get the hell out of our waterways. Time to move to closed containment systems and then you can speak about being environmentally-friendly and non-obtrusive to our natural surroundings and wild stocks. Thank you.

Shoreline Arts proposes changes to handle carvings KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The group behind the city’s annual carving competition is proposing changes that could mean the sculptures will be on display for a limited time and then removed indefinitely. A carving walk, which would feature all of the carvings from the past summer’s event in one place for a period of one year, is the latest idea floated by the Shoreline Arts Society. Marcia McKay, sec-
retary of the Shoreline Arts Society, said the group couldn’t help but notice that people kept coming to look at the carvings well after the competition last year. “This past year we noticed how popular Frank James Park has been since the carvings were left in place for a few extra months and we would like to propose that the city establish a carving walk,” McKay said. She told council at its Monday night meeting that a carving walk

would keep all the carvings in place year round.
“We’d arrange that most of the carvings
remain on display until the following year when they would be replaced with new ones,” McKay said. “It would keep the display fresh and be a sustained tourist attraction, whether at Frank James Park, the Spit, in Campbellton, or even at Robert Ostler Park.” McKay said that with Frank James Park able to accommodate 26 to 28 carvers every year, that would mean 26 to 28 new carvings for people to look at each year, no matter the time of year. With the carvings
being replaced on an annual basis, it would also mean less upkeep for the society. “We would propose that the walkway – or the area that you give us – be made up of those carvings and then we would replace them every year,” McKay said. “The older carvings would go to the sponsors or they could go elsewhere, depending on how popular they are. “If we had a turnover of these 25 to 30 (carvings) we think it would be quite healthy.”
Following advice from Mayor Andy Adams and City Clerk Peter Wipper, McKay said Shoreline Arts will provide a formal, written request to the city to consider a carving walk. Meanwhile, McKay said the society is gearing up for its 19th carving competition, which runs from June 24 to 28 this year. She added that the society is once again expecting a full slate of carvers and even have a registrant from as far away as the Netherlands.

Rates for backcountry camping and use of sani-stations remain at $5, and fees for mooring buoys, picnic shelters and group camping are unchanged. Parking fees for dayuse lots, a failed experiment from 10 years ago, are not being reintroduced. The fee increases are largely restricted to prime season, “frontcountry” campsites. Winter camping rates remain unchanged as well as year-round rates at many remote locations, including Cape Scott Provincial Park on the northern tip of Vancouver Island and Schoen Lake Park, located between Sayward and Woss. The ministry says the varied rate increases take into account local demand and economic conditions as well as private camping availability. Sought-after locations such as Cultus Lake and Shuswap Lake charge $35 a night for a site with up to four adults,
while nearby private campgrounds charge higher rates. The province collected about $17 million from its park and recreation fees last year, while spending $22 million on direct park operating costs. Campsite use is on the rise in B.C. since the introduction of an online reservation service called Discover Camping, which opens for the season at 9 a.m. on March 15. The system handled 133,000 reservations last year, nearly a 10 per cent increase over 2013.

Poets slam audience at Literacy Week event J.R. RARDON CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Ten minutes before the start of Tuesday’s poetry slam demonstration at Carihi, Campbell River Literacy Now outreach coordinator Kat Eddy was growing worried. “There are only, like, eight people in there,” said Eddy, who helped coordinate the event as the cornerstone of her group’s National Literacy Week activities in the community. In the end, she had no worries. More than 30 people filled the band’s chairs and were held rapt by performances from Scott Thompson and Morgan Purvis of the Victoria poetry collective Raising Voices. Even better, as far as Eddy was concerned, two local youth stepped forward to perform as well, and drew big applause. “I wasn’t 100 per cent sure if I was going to perform,” said Sarah Pineda, 17, a student at Timberline Secondary who had never before read her poetry in public. “I brought a piece of mine because I wanted to see what it would be like to perform in a small audience, or just perform in an audience at all. For me it was just a matter of getting out there and trying it out.” Literac y Week in Campbell River kicked off with a free swim Sunday at Strathcona Gar-

on some of those social issues. “I really like performing because I can be very vocal and nobody interrupts me,” she said. “Also, I can talk about my gender. Typically, venues where I perform you would get thrown out for telling someone that being transgendered wasn’t valid.” J.R.

Documentary makes Canadian premier on Cortes “Who Are My People?” the first film to investigate the dark side of green energy development in California, will premiere in Canada’s Manson’s Hall on Cortes Island, 7 p.m., Feb. 6. The film, from documentary filmmaker/ investigative journalist Robert Lundahl, explores
the destruction of Native American cultural sites, intact desert ecosystems, and biodiversity values, in the rush to profit from “Green Energy.” “It may seem inconceivable to those on the left,” said Lundahl, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, “that their own ambitions could be aligned in the his-

torical context with ‘Indian fighters,’ John C. Fremont and General George Armstrong Custer, who suffered defeat at the Little Big Horn.” In the quest to develop green energy in the deserts of California, for example, some say environmentalists and green energy supporters lack an understanding of the consequences of their actions and choices. Global energy firms like NextEra, Brightsource, and Iberdrola participate in what some have called a “gold rush” for the new green energy profits. At risk are a fantastic array of Native American cultural sites, now facing the bulldozer. The Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT) have litigated the issue, filing a complaint on Dec. 4 while alleging the religion and culture of CRIT’s members are » NEWS » SPORTS » BUSINESS » ENTERTAINMENT » COMMUNITY LIFESTYLES » OPINION

strongly connected to the physical environment of the area, including the ancient trails, petroglyphs, grindstones, hammerstones, and other cultural resources known to exist there. “There is a lack of awareness on behalf of
the environmental community of indigenous rights,” said Lundahl, himself an active environmentalist. Mainstream environmental groups like the Sierra Club and NRDC have supported large solar despite environ-
mental and cultural degradation. The issue has come to a head in the California deserts where the ARRA stimulus program loan guarantees and cash grants have provided upfront capital for developers in the hundreds of
millions of dollars. “Isn’t it great that the big environmental groups and the utilities can agree on strategy?” solar power expert Bill Powers explains in the film. “It just happens to be a very high-impact strategy.” Lundahl’s film, “Who A r e My Pe o p l e ? ” includes gorgeous aerial photography and haunting descriptions of over 20 large geoglyphs, now endangered. They form a mythic landscape, one from another time or dimension of experience, located along the Colorado River. Indigenous elders, Ron Van Fleet (Mojave), Phil Smith (Chemehuevi), Alfredo Figueroa (Chemehuevi), and Preston Arrow-weed (Quechan), tell the story.

Artists’ program kicks off Artists take note: ‘Open Studio’ at the Campbell River Art Gallery begins its season Tuesday, February 3 for six weekly sessions. Open Studio is a longstanding Gallery tradition that features live model figure, providing the opportunity for artists to work with live models for the past 20 years. Artists gather together to paint, sketch or sculpt from a different live model each week. The range of five models for this session provides the group with a variety of body shapes and posing styles. Each model includes long poses, which give participants time to complete their work. It brings together artists
in the community and the surrounding region and allows for creative dialogue among the participants. Open Studio will take place every Tuesday from February 3 to March 10 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The drop-in fee to participate is $12.50 (GST included). Artists can also pre-register for all six sessions at a reduced rate of $62.50. For more information about Open Studio or to register by phone, call 250-287-2261, or drop by the Campbell River Art Gallery in the Tyee Plaza, Tuesday to Saturday, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Check the Gallery’s website at www.crartgallery.ca for more information.

Brayden Patrick works with an interactive touch-screen in the computer programming display during Work BC’s Find Your Fit career exploration event at Southgate Middle School last week.
Campbell River students and parents were invited to take part in an interactive, hands-on career exploration event hosted by Campbell River School District earlier this month. Work BC’s touring Find Your Fit program features a series of hands-on, interactive displays to help students learn about in-demand jobs, explore career options and training opportunities in the province. Two sessions were held at Southgate Middle School during the tour’s stop in Campbell River Jan. 8. The student session during the day was primarily targeted to middle school students from Southgate, Phoenix and Robron Centre as part of an effort to increase career exploration and investigation opportunities for this age group within the district. A second session from was held for parents and secondary students that evening. Invitations were s ent through phone calls and emails using Synervoice and
Beach survey ongoing Make your opinion heard; how do you feel about having beach access at Ostler Park? A survey asking for public feedback on the future of Ostler Park is open until Jan. 31. With sections of riprap (large boulders) along the shore of Ostler Park damaged and collapsing because of wave action and recent storms, the City is asking whether
the community prefers replacing the riprap or establishing a beach stretching nearly 200 metres along the park. Unless it’s completely rebuilt, riprap would need to be repaired again and again. The beach option is consistent with the community’s vision and guidelines for shoreline protection as described in the Official Commu-
nity Plan. Work on either option would take place from August through October 2015. To see more information about the options to restore the shoreline, and to complete the survey, go to www.campbellriver.ca/What’s New.

The evening session was well-attended, according to District staff, with many students who had attended the student session during the day coming back to further explore the stations with their parents. Find Your Fit allowed students to explore a variety of careers, including nursing, carpentry, construction inspection, computer programming, truck driving, mechanical engineering and electrical technology. There were also several iPad kiosks where students could watch short videos on approximately 100 other varied careers such as accountant, graphic designer, physiotherapist, civil engineer, conservation officer, dentist, and helicopter pilot, to name a few.

Bob Dice, Greenway Land Trust president, and former director Jerry Fletcher do some planting along the Myrt Thompson trail in 2012.
Myrt Thompson trail to undergo soil experiment G r e e nw a y s L a n d Trust, the City of Campbell River, the Campbell River Indian Band and Renuable Resources are collaborating on an experimental project this week to improve the soils along the Myrt Thompson trail in preparation for planting this fall. In the past, the poor soils along the trail have made re-establishing native vegetation difficult due to poor growth and competition from invasive species. “Gre enways L and Trust has sponsored several projects on the
Myrt Thompson Trail over the last ten years, focused mainly on invasive plant removal and native planting,” says Chuck DeSorcy of Greenways. “We have found that the invasive plants are reduced for a few years, but unless there are native plants to compete with them, they come right back.” The project is building on principles of organic soil care to help build healthy soil along the trail for the long term. The first step is depositing organic material which has been donated by Renuable Resources
and delivered by the City of Campbell River; the next steps in the project involve putting in a ‘cover crop’ to protect the organic material and help break it down further, and this fall native ‘pioneer species’ will be planted to continue to build the soil and keep out invasives. Greenways will monitor whether this process helps to establish native vegetation more quickly over the next few years. For more information, contact Greenways Land Trust at (250) 287-3785 or www.greenwaystrust. ca

A Look Back
THE HISTORY OF THE CAMPBELL RIVER AREA
Oyster Bay has a history of good eating CATHERINE GILBERT MUSEUM AT CAMPBELL RIVER
trip to Downtown Oyster Bay in 1974 would inevitably have meant a visit to the Driftwood Dining Lounge. Praised for its excellent homestyle cooking, it was a popular truck and dining stop south of Willow Point. Today it is the only visual reminder of what used to be a very busy place. The Driftwood began as the Blue Grouse cafe in 1946, then in 1968 was purchased by Bill and Elinor Coward. Their daughter Marcia Wilson said her parents worked hard to improve the restaurant’s reputation. They were determined to keep the restaurant open year round and her father’s goal was to entice truckers using the Island Highway to stop in. In those years, the coastal Island Highway was the only one that ran north and south on Vancouver Island. Coward would ensure that trucks could enter the parking lot even after the worst snow storms. He put a piece of plywood on the front of his truck and would plough all the snow clear. Coward knew his clientele. As a newspaper man wrote in the Entertainer in 1974 - “If the truckers stop – the food is good.” Oddly enough, this was the Cowards’ first venture into the food business. As friend and writer Arthur Mayse said; “They took a frightening plunge... but Up-Islanders have this habit of biting off more than they can chew and managing somehow to handle it.” Elinor told him that they

didn’t know anything about restaurant cooking when they started out, but just cooked as they did for themselves and their children. Their formula worked, and while husband Bill was away working at Upland Excavating to support the restaurant, Elinor and the staff were building a reputation for good food and pleasant surroundings. A restaurant critic gave the following description in the Entertainer of February 1974: “The licensed dining room in the Driftwood has the atmosphere of a country inn with the panelled wood walls, the grandfather clock and fireplace flanked with a gigantic dief-
fenbachia.” He also went on to rave about the food, noting that the restaurant specialized in seafood. “The plate was heaped with prawns in crispy batter, breaded oysters which were huge and juicy, tender scallops and cod in batter.” And like many customers, he completed his meal with homemade pie, that daughter Marcia said was a speciality of her grandmother’s. The restaurant by this time had 38 staff and Marcia described it as a ‘happening place’. But it took a few years to get it to that point. One of their biggest challenges in
the early years was providing enough water for the restaurant. Marcia remembers her father filling garbage cans full of water from an outside pump to meet the needs of the restaurant for cooking, cleaning and consumption. Finally, in 1971, they were able to put in a drilled well and plumbing, and no longer needed to haul water. They also had a gas pump installed, sold ice cream from an old fuel shed, and added on a 13 seat cocktail lounge that her father named the K444, after one of the ships that had formed the Oyster Bay breakwater. Most of the breakwater had been taken apart by 1956, but
the K444 was there into the late 1970s, and Marcia’s father had salvaged some mementos from it for his lounge. The idea for the breakwater came from Alfred Simpson, who had purchased the land for the purpose of logging in the early 1940s and soon found that the fierce southeast storms that blew in winter were tossing logs in all directions. The first ship to arrive was the St Paul in 1942, a three masted sailing ship. Then he added a couple more. However, it wasn’t very effective as the ships weren’t stable and shifted around, and the bay still wasn’t protected. Locals nicknamed the breakwater ‘Simpson’s Folly’. In 1944, HR MacMillan took over the logging operations, named the business Iron River Logging and brought in more than one hundred houses to accommodate workers and families. MacMillan also brought in more vessels and stabilized the breakwater. Included in the breakwater were the destroyer Burns, the Union Steamship steamer Lady Pam, the Consolidated Whaling Company tender Gray, the Island Tug and Barge Company’s barges Drumwall and Betsey Ross, the San Francisco car ferry Golden Bear, the steam freighter Chatham, and freighter Border Queen, the tug Cape Scott, and two naval vessels, HMCS Levis (K400) and HMCS Matane (K444). For the full story on the breakwater, read Rick James’ fascinating account that forms part of the temporary exhibit ‘Rust in Peace’ at the Museum at Campbell River.

J.R. RARDON CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Ever y b o dy ag re es the Timberline senior boys basketball team is improving. But the Wolves have a little way to go to catch up with their cross-town rivals. Brodie Doherty scored a game-high 20 points and teammate Jaret Knowles added 19 as the Carihi Tyees rolled to a 65-46 AAA North league victory over Timberline at Carihi Tuesday night. “That was nowhere near as strong as we’ve been playing lately,” Carihi coach Donnie Fitzpatrick said. “But our defense was outstanding. We got out and scored a lot of baskets in transition.” Leading 31-20 at halftime, the Tyees broke the game open with a 13-2 run to open the third quarter. Doherty had 10 points and Braxton Barnes scored seven of his 14 in the period as Carihi extended its lead to 53-27 before Timberline mounted a late rally. “In that third quarter we definitely lost the handle on the game,” Timberline coach Gord Hay said. “But we did come back and outscore them in the fourth, and our turnovers were down in the second half. I’m very pleased with the guys’ output.” Post man Dale Straw led Timberline (2-7) with 18 points and Midah Ash added 13 in the loss. Both teams played with fewer than eight players,

and Fitzpatrick credited Barnes for a “phenomenal” game while battling back from a bout with the flu. Hay noted the short bench dictated the Wolves’ tempo and style of play, limiting opportunities to press or force a fast-break attack. “You can still be aggressive, but you’ve also got to stay controlled,” Hay said.
Carihi sits in second place in the three-team North division, following a recent loss to Mark Isfeld Secondary of Courtenay. Timberline trails the pack, but is making strides to close the gap. “Overall, that was a good effort,” said Fitzpatrick. “Their team is getting better.”
Carihi 65, Timberline 46 Timberline scoring – Dale Straw 18, Midah Ash 13, Kyle Dawson 6, Drew Savery 4, Greg Hay 4, Dalton Marchand 1. Carihi scoring – Brodie Doherty 20, Jaret Knowles 19, Braxton Barnes 14, Dace Harle 7, Hunter Korol 6, Ross Griffin 3.
The Carihi girls basketball team should be in over their head. But the AA squad playing against AAA oponents are undefeated in league play so far this season and have done well in tournament action. “We started off the year as a AAA team as they went by numbers last year,” coach Dana Dunsmore said, “and realized in the beginning of December that we actually were a AA team. So, the AAA league schedule was already out and we didn’t want to disrupt things, so decided to continue playing AAA teams.” No problem, though. The team is undefeated in the AAA North Island league. They will be competing in the AA North Island championships, however, and potentially the AA Islands. The team’s first tournament of the season was at Vanier where they beat Alberni District Secondary School 64-30. They had not beat Alberni the previous year, so the girls gained a lot of confidence after this win, Dunsmore said. “In the semi-finals we lost to Wellington Secondary School 46-52. Wellington shot lights out from behind the 3 point line to beat us,” she said. They then beat Belmont Secondary School 45-29 and ended up getting third place. They then beat Alberni and Cowichan in their AAA league games the next week, 55-39 and 55-21. Their second tournament was at Wellington where they beat Dover Bay 58-23 to start the tournament, then beat DW Poppy (Vancouver) 52-25 to advance to the finals. They again played Wellington and fell short losing 42-47. “The girls played a lot better this time against Wellington, but fell apart on defense and had key turnovers in the last five minutes,” Dunsmore said. “We were up on them the entire game until the end. So, the girls got second place.”

The Tyees then had three key victories in league play against Dover Bay 58-24, G.P. Vanier 57-40 and Nanaimo District Secondary School 59-34. Their most recent tournament was at Isfeld where the girls again came in second. The girls started off the tournament beating Credo (from Vancouver) 72-48. They then went on to beat Shawnigan 52-26 in the semi-finals. “We went into the finals against the host team Isfeld on quite a high, as the girls had played great since the loss to Wellington in the final of their tournament,” Dunsmore said. “We knew Isfeld had a superstar and keyed our defense to try to stop her. In the end, she scored 48 points, and we lost 59-75. “This tournament was a good one for us, as all but two teams were AA schools. Ballenas, Wellington and Isfeld are all at the top of the AA League so far this season, and they were all at this tournament.” The Carihi Tyees currently hold a solid 11-3 record. “We have learned a lot from our losses and have steadily improved throughout the season,” Dunsmore said. “I’m hoping this loss gives them more motivation to work harder in practice and learn how to stop a team who has one key standout player. The Tyees are trying to peak for the North Islands in just over a week.

Looks like it came out of the Nissan/Infiniti design studios, and thatâ€™s not a criticism.

Toyota FT1 Toyota was all about the roar of the engines in Montreal, which certainly pleased the gathered Quebec auto journos, who to a man/woman always appear to be race crazy to me (Given the market reality in Quebec, that doesnâ€™t appear to be reflected in car buyer choices). Nevertheless, most would surely enjoy the sleek lines of the Toyota FT-1, designed to be at home on the track and a heck of a ticket magnet on the highway. Up next is the Toronto Show, which takes the name The Canadian International Auto Show. Bite your lip, Morgan. The Calgary show follows, then the new-look, re-imagined Vancouver International Auto Show debuts March 24-29.

FREE SESSIONS ON CHANGES TO BC BUILDING CODE AND PERMIT APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS
COMMUNITY UPDATE JANUARY 30, 2015
Local builders and developers are invited to the City of Campbell River’s free information sessions on the new amendments to the BC Building Code that came into effect in December. Sessions will also introduce new requirements for City building permit applications.
NOTICE OF PROPOSAL TO ESTABLISH DOWNTOWN BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT AREA Notice is hereby given that the City of Campbell River, in cooperation with the Heart of the City Business Improvement Area Society (HoCBIAS), is proposing to establish a business improvement area in the downtown core for a 5 year term. Over the past 5 years the owners of Class 6 Business/Other property lying within the Heart of the City Business Improvement Area (HoCBIA) have paid a “local service tax”. The tax is collected by the City of Campbell River to be used by the HoCBIAS to operate a “business promotional scheme”. The funds raised through the local service tax have enabled the HoCBIAS to promote the downtown core through marketing and beautification projects. The boundaries of the HoCBIA are defined on the following map. In order for the HoCBIA to continue operating, City Council must adopt a new bylaw which would re-establish the HoCBIA for 5 years. The Society has asked that the bylaw be processed as a “Council initiative” under the authority of the Community Charter – Part 7, Division 5. Under the “Council initiative” method, Council may, by bylaw, proceed with the renewal of the HoCBIA unless at least 50% of the owners of the parcels that would be subject to the local service tax sign a petition against, and the persons signing are the owners of parcels that in total represent at least 50% of the assessed value of land and improvements that would be subject to the local service tax.
YOU ASKED: WHAT’S CITY COUNCIL WORKING ON?
In Progress: • Council Orientation (January) • Strategic Planning (February 3-18) – considering community service requests and setting priorities • Financial Planning (February 23-27) – reviewing service options and confirming a five-year plan for the City budget
January 30, February 4 from 9 a.m. until noon Enterprise Centre
Coffee and tea will be provided. To register contact: Ruth Laviolette at 250-286-5725
Coming Soon! Starting in early spring, Task Forces will be formed to work on plans to support: • Forestry • Development (review of development processes, land use, permit applications, etc.) • Public Waterfront (options/plans for 3.5-acre site) To share your ideas with Council, contact them at City Hall. Telephone: 250.286.5708 Email: email@example.com
HoCBIAS’ proposed budget for 2015 is $42,586, with a 7% increase the first year and 5% annual increase thereafter. In order to raise the funds requested by the HoCBIAS for 2015, owners of Class 6 property lying within the HoCBIA would be required to pay a local service tax at a rate of approximately $2.25 per $1,000 of assessed value of the improvements (buildings) on their property. The Discovery Inn and Harbourside Inn are included in the HoCBIA boundaries on the basis that it will pay a percentage of its assessed improvement value representing the retail portion of the building. Owners of Class 6 property located within the HoCBIA boundary, that are opposed to the renewal of the HoCBIA, must notify the City in writing no later than 4:30 p.m. on March 4, 2015. Information relating to the renewal of the Heart of the City Business Improvement Area, including copies of the relevant legislation, is available for inspection during business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday at Campbell River City Hall, 301 St. Ann’s Road. Information can also be obtained by e-mailing tracy.bate@campbellriver. ca, or by calling 250-286-5705. For more information on the HoCBIAS’ business promotional scheme please contact HoCBIAS President, John Wheat at (250) 286-1233. Tracy Bate, Deputy City Clerk

Killer Whales capture first B.C. record in seven years
ast weekend the Campbell River Killer Whales competed in Victoria at the Vancouver Island Regional (VIR) Championships, racing against the top swimmers from across the Island. CRKW sent down one of their youngest teams ever, made up of some of the up-and-coming stars on the team, as well as swimmers that were attending the VIR Championships for the first time. “It was a great meet for the whole team, with some of the younger swimmers stepping up into more of a leadership role,” coach Darryl Rudolf said. “The coaches were ver y impressed with the results from the meet, and can’t wait to see some more fast swimming as we head into some of our most competitive meets of the year.” Catalina Manders, Cailyn Collis, Cianna Dunn and Melayna Beaudin all had great results over the three-day meet, and were also great leaders to all the younger swimmers that were at the meet. Melayna Beaudin, a backstroke specialist, swam to a silver medal in both the 100 backstroke and 200 backstroke, posting times that put her in the top 10 in the country for 13-year-old girls. Cianna Dunn had a breakthrough meet, and put together races that got her noticed by everyone on the Island. Dunn stood at the top of the podium in the 800 Freestyle and 200 But-
terfly, as well as earned silver medals in both the 400 IM and 400 Freestyle. Cailyn Collis also had a breakout performance, putting together an incredible 1500 Freestyle on the first day. Collis ended up winning the 1500 Freestyle, putting up a time that qualifies her for the Western National Championships coming up in late February. Catalina Manders was one of the top CRKW swimmers of the meet, posting 100 per cent best times over the course of the weekend, something that she has not done for over two-and-a-half years. After struggling with performing at meets for a number of years her perseverance helped her put together one of her best meets ever, and she is now qualified for the Swim BC Open Provincial Championships in March. The big swim of the weekend was done by a very special group of 11-12 girls. Jasmine Skuse, Lilan Forsyth, Emmy Stapff and Jamiliya Wellard, came together as a team to break two Swim BC Provincial Records in the 200 Medley and 200 Freestyle Relay. On Friday evening the team smashed the old record by two seconds, but were beat to the wall by 0.06 seconds by one of the Victoria teams. When it came to the final relay of the weekend, the 200 Freestyle Relay, the girls were going to do whatever they could to make sure they got to the
wall first. With some of the top 12 and under girls in the country being on the Island, the CRKW team knew that whoever won the race would capture the provincial record as well. With some amazing swims by all four girls, the team once again destroyed the old record by two seconds, and won the race. This is the first provincial record held by the Campbell River Killer Whales in seven years, and the first held by a female swimmer. “There were some amazing swims over the course of the weekend, with swimmers winning medals, qualifying for meets, and hitting best times,” Rudolf said Kara Beauregard broke club records in the 200 and 800 Freestyle and also achieved her second AAA standard in the 100 backstroke, qualifying herself for the AAA Provincial Championships. Brooke Wenger had a breakthrough swim in the 200 butterfly on the last night of the meet to go a best time by three seconds, passing a swimmer during the last 20 meters of the race to win a Bronze medal. We n g e r w a s n o stranger to the podium, having many medaling swims during the swim meet, making herself a swimmer to watch as we head into the second half of the season. Other swimmers that put up exceptional performances were Carson Dunn, Summer Wenger, Sofia Simard, and Owen Willard.

Storm head down the home stretch The Campbell River Storm has already locked up first place in the VIJHL North Division standings and is assured of finishing with their best record in more than a decade. So with just seven games left on their regular season schedule, Head Coach Lee Stone plans to have his club concentrating on the finer points of the game in preparation for the playoffs. “I think we really need to focus on playing better team defense,” he says, “You’re not going to win a provincial championship game 9-3 – you just don’t see those kind of scores. It’s going to be more
like 2-1 or 3-2, and it’s often an ugly goal that wins it. Right now we give up too many high-end scoring chances, simply because the way we play in our d-zone or we’re not back-checking hard enough. Those are things we need to work on during these last seven games.” The Storm (33-4-1-3) rolls into the home stretch this weekend with games against a pair of opponents locked in a battle for second place in the North Division standings. Campbell River plays host to the Nanaimo Buccaneers tonight at Rod Brind’Amour Arena, and then

Back-up goaltender Riley Welyk will make his fifth straight start in net for the Storm as starter Jesse Michel is still nursing a lower body injury. Welyk is 3-1 since coming over from the Westshore Wolves in a trade earlier this month. The Annual Storm vs Alumni Game held last Sunday was a great success, attracting a crowd of nearly 400. The Alumni came out victorious, but the real winner was charity as over $2,000 was raised for the Cameryn’s Cause for Kids Society.

Donald Ivan Gardner January 20, 1942 – January 14, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, and uncle just shy of his 73rd birthday. Don was predeceased by his parents Ivan and Ena, as well as his son Robert. He is survived by his devoted wife Ann who was by his side until the very end, his daughter Patricia, his sisters Gladys and Myrna, daughter-inlaw Carol, his 4 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, and countless loving family and friends. Don was born in Ladysmith and moved to Campbell River in 1978. Don’s wife Ann was the love of his life and along with her family brought him endless joy and support for the past 37 years. Don’s smile and charm never failed to light up a room, always made new friends wherever he went, constantly created a lasting impression with people he met, making him forever unforgettable. He had a great zest for life, sharp mind, quick wit, a big heart and loved to dance. Don was proud to have been a member of the Ladysmith Volunteer Fire Department from 1964-1976. His many accomplishments and charitable duties included the Masons, Shriners, Lions and Curling Club, all of Campbell River. Don was a commercial fisherman and an engineer on a seine boat. He was a skilled tradesman, and owned and operated ALDI Heating Services Ltd for over 30 years, as well as trained and mentored many service technicians. At the onset of his illness, Don enjoyed the activities at the Campbell River Adult Daycare Centre. He put up a courageous battle with his illness. The family would like to thank the staff on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Campbell River Hospital, and a special thanks to the entire staff at New Horizons Community of Care, for all their compassionate and loving care over the past two years. Our heartfelt gratitude to his friends and buddies who visited him in the hospital and at New Horizons (you know who you are). In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Don’s memory to Gizeh Shrine Transportation Fund or the charity of your choice. Please join us for a Celebration of Life for Don at 2pm on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at the Campbell River Masonic Discovery Lodge #149, 2905 Island Hwy, Campbell River, BC.

WILLIAMSON, William Graham November 7, 1941 – January 22, 2015 After a brief illness at C.R. General Hospital, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bill Williamson. Bill was predeceased by his wife of 52 years, Goldie; his parents William and Elizabeth Williamson, and his nephew Steven Feller. Dad leaves behind to mourn his sister Grace (August) Feller, brother-in-law Dan (Sheila) Hartman, daughter Suzanne (Kim) Morin, sons Robert (Lorraine) Williamson and William Thomas Williamson, grand-children Candice (Corey) Silliker, Damian Kudoba, Anthony Lambert, Tara Williamson, Matthew Williamson, Kyle Dufton, and one great-grandson, Blake. He also leaves his many relatives in the Cumberland area to mourn. Together, Bill and Goldie were loving foster parents to many children over a 25 year span. Notably, Carl Dick, Laura Page, David (Michelle) Roemer, and Shelly Roemer, who all became permanent members of our family. Bill was born in Comox, B.C. and spent his early years growing up in Cumberland. Grandpa Williamson moved the family to Campbell River in 1950, where Dad eventually met the love of his life, Goldie. During his service in the Canadian Navy, the newlyweds lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia. After which, they returned to Campbell River to start and raise their family. Bill worked at Elk Falls Pulp and Paper for well over 30 years, beginning on the Boom Crew, and then becoming a Journeyman Carpenter. He found many lifelong friends among his co-workers, and also through several volunteer organizations within the community. In particular, as a member of the Eagles, as an executive member with C.E.P. local 1123, and as a longstanding director on the Credit Union board. Dad held an undeniably strong passion as an outdoorsman; he found incredible peace and joy through fishing, hunting, and camping. He shared and passed on this passion with his children and grandchildren, making outdoor life a family affair. There will be a celebration of life for Bill on Saturday, January 31, 2015 at the Eagles Hall (1999 14th Avenue, Campbell River, B.C.) from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Please join us to share and remember a devoted father, brother, papa, and friend to many.

JORDAN MILBRANDT 1981 - 2015
A wonderful, generous heart stopped beating Jan. 17. Our much beloved son, Jordan, passed away, accidentally. He treasured his family, his mom and dad Penny and Ted, his brother Jamie, Uncle Jim, his Grandma Peggy, his Grand Jo-Anne and his beloved dog, Odysseus (Ody). Also, left to mourn are his girlfriend Tanya, Brycon, his Aunt Jane, Uncle Dave, cousins Amanda, Andrew and Tony and their families, his second cousins, great-aunts and uncles and many friends. Jordan was predeceased by his Grandpa Jack, his Poppa Bill and his Nana Valerie. Jordan loved creating electronic music, some of which has been played on radio stations throughout Canada and can be listened to on Soundcloud. He loved DJing as Doc Loveless. He started locally with Wired 4 Sound, Greyzone and Redeye Jedi. We thank his many special friends who shared his love for music and enriched his life. A Celebration of Jordanâ€™s life will be held at 2 pm on Sunday, February 1st at the Eagleâ€™s Hall, Campbell River. As Jordan was a collector and lover of ball caps, we ask that you wear one to his celebration in his memory if you wish. We look forward to meeting all of Jordanâ€™s friends. Donations in Jordanâ€™s memory may be made to the Campbell River SPCA. We are so thankful for all the love and support weâ€™ve received and would like Jordanâ€™s friends to call or come by the house and share their stories of our wonderful son.
