Council discusses location for a new library Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

A Notice of Motion was brought forward by Councillor Kerrie Reay to find a location for the new Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) in Sooke - with emphasis on reconsidering the John Phillips Memorial Park (JPMP) location. The matter was brought back into light at Monday night’s council meeting because the current VIRL library (located on Anna Marie Road) is already at maximum capacity - and that further delay on making a final decision on the

library’s new location may result in Sooke not having a new library until 2020 or later. According to Reay’s report, Sooke was one of the first jurisdictions to express desire to proceed, putting the District of Sooke on top of VIRL’s consolidated library list. In 2012, VIRL conducted a community consultation in Sooke to identify a parcel of land for the library. “But this was delayed by the municipality again. For the past two years, the district has been unable to identify a parcel of land for its location,” Reay said.

The suggested JPMP location- which has been subject to intense public discussion since 2010 due to site’s history and cultural significance to Sooke - was met with opposition from members of the public as well as councillors Brenda Parkinson and Ebony Logins. “There is so much opposition to that location, and I can’t support it either, just because I can’t get that parkland back; once it’s gone, it’s gone,” Logins said. “Unless the district has a plan around bringing in parkland in other downtown locations, giving up that space doesn’t sit right

with me.” A final decision has been in limbo for two years; with discussions from council considering multiple options that have either been too small, too costly, or just not wanted by the public. Even a possible land swap with the Lions was brought up at one point, though the piece of property was just too small. “We even thought to go to developers and owners of land who want to grow their projects and do business, but that proved to be too expensive,” said Councillor Rick Kasper. With public focus and

opposition remaining firm on protecting the John Phillips Park location, Kasper noted a final decision still needs to be made soon. “The emotional record on what we decide to do with that piece of land is a bit long in tooth,” Kasper said. “If we show some leadership in conjunction with the VIRL, perhaps we’ll see a brand-new facility there in less than two years. Otherwise, we’ll be here in 2020 going around in circles over and over.” Mayor Maja Tait noted another path to take would be setting the focus on the town centre - and perhaps

fitting the new library into those set of plans. “I would like us to look at the options; would a developer be interested in providing the land as an amenity instead of the other things are always looking at?” Tait said. “I just struggle with us putting a building outside the town centre when that’s been an ongoing priority for this council.” For the time being council will currently hold out on Reay’s motion to progress with the JPMP location of the new library, with a decision to be considered in the next council report on the matter.

Police Beat Sooke RCMP and West Shore RCMP are actively investigating a series of fraudulent purchases, using fake $50 Canadian bills reported between March 1 and March 3, 2015 in Langford and Sooke. In those four occurrences, the same fake $50 bill with the same serial number (AHT9461314) was passed. “The seized counterfeit bill in Sooke appears to have the transparent holograph window from an actual $5 bill, carefully cut out and taped on to the counterfeit 50 dollar bill portion.” said S/Sgt. Jeff McArthur of Sooke Detachment. - The first incidents occurred at Fairway Market in Langford (March 1) and Wendy’s restaurant (March 1) - The second incidents occurred at Western Foods and Costco in Langford (March 3) - The last reported incident occurred at Western Foods in Sooke (March 3). West Shore RCMP Financial Crime investigator is also assisting with the investigation. Investigators are examining video surveillance from the different establishment in hope to identify any suspects. “West Shore RCMP are asking the public’s assistance with this investigation,” said Cst. Alex Berube, spokesperson of the West Shore RCMP Detachment, “We believe there is a strong possibility that other businesses were affected by these counterfeit bills and encourage them to come forward and report it to their local police agency.” If anyone has information on this crime please contact our office at 250-474-2264 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS.”

Reay endorses candidate The new federal riding of Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke could soon have a new - yet familiar - face vying to represent its citizens in the up-coming federal election following today’s announcement by Shari Lukens that she has entered the race for

the Conservative nomination. “Three years in municipal politics gave me the ability to understand the issues, the challenges and the opportunities in Colwood and the region,” said Lukens, “I know and care passionately about what matters to residents in the riding.” Lukens has been an active part of the Capital Region since moving to Colwood in 2009. Prior to that she lived in the Cowichan Valley and Vancouver. Previously she had a successful career as a television journalist, a competitive athlete, and spent time overseas as an elite figure skating coach. “Conservatives in Esquimalt-SaanichSooke have an important decision to make on March 21,” stated Kerrie Reay, Past President of the local Conservative Riding Association. They need and deserve someone with experience, passion and commitment to provide strong representation in the federal election and Shari has demonstrated she has those qualities along with the work ethic required to be a great MP.”

A few excerpts from the District of Sooke’s draft five-year financial plan which was presented at the COW meeting on March 2, 2015. This is the executive summary: Council approved their 2014 – 2015 Corporate Strategic Plan on April 28, 2014. These priorities have been the primary guidance for the 2015 – 2019 Five Year Financial Plan. In the 2014 – 2015 Corporate Strategic Plan, council identified four strategic priorities: Fiscal Responsibility, Town Centre, Economic Revitalization, Community Planning. The 2015 budget integrates each of these priorities. Fiscal Responsibility: The District will strive towards longterm financial sustainability. It will prepare for the future by ensuring adequate contributions are made towards required long-term capital infrastructure needs while living within current means. The 2015 budget maintains a 2.49 per cent tax increase. This increase includes contractually obligated increases to expenditures that equate to approximately 2 per cent overall. Addressing the long-term contributions towards capital infrastructure needs, there is an additional $130,000 budgeted to be transferred into the Capital Asset Replacement Reserve. This is above and beyond the minimum required by bylaw. With long-term sustainability a critical element to strong fiscal responsibility an additional $291,000 is projected to be transferred into the Capital Asset

Replacement Reserve. This is the revenue that is expected to be received from new assessment within the District which is called Non-market Change assessment. A 2.49 per cent tax increase has been achieved in the current year while setting aside $612,939 into reserves for future use, of which $421,000 is not currently required by bylaw. This represents strong fiscal responsibility. Town Centre: The Town Centre is a significant priority of council. The district is striving towards making the Town Centre a vibrant, clean and well-maintained node. The initial focus will be on transportation flow, pedestrian safety improvements and meeting appropriate maintenance standards. Implementation of the Town Centre Plan will require many different efforts, including some capital projects, land acquisition and road realignments. Considerable work is needed to improve sidewalks and pedestrian safety. Additionally, actions are required to improve the appearance and functionality of the area. Some of the completed projects include; land purchases, Church Road Multi-use Trail, completion of the first phase of the Connector Wadams Way, construction of the Wadams Way Multi-use Trail. Included in 2015 of the Proposed Financial Plan are the following projects: • Design and begin construction of the second phase of the Connector (Phillips to Charters Rd.) • Hwy 14 Round-

The chamber looks forward to the next event, the Business Excellence Awards Gala on April 11. Tickets are online at www. sookeregionchamber. com and at the chamber office, 201-2015 Sheilds Rd.

55 years ago a short romance flourished

Sooke Says

Just For You!

Pirjo Raits

Sooke News Mirror

Vera Banner Appleby had a good chuckle last Friday when she saw her maiden name stamped into an aluminum token. The tokens, which were popular at midways and carnivals during the 1950s and early 1960s, was found by Ivan Bjornholt with his metal detector at Woodside farm along West Coast Road. After Word War II, the Wilford’s, who own Woodside, had Dutch families living and working on the farm and the Van Ek family name was a common one in Sooke. The story has it that young Vera Banner was dating Benny Van Ek for a short while and it was Van Ek who must have enshrined the relationship onto the token. The tokens were printed one letter at a time from a dial on a machine at midways and the cost was about 25 cents. Both of the youngsters went to Milne’s Landing high school and as these high

Debbie & Pete Fiddler married Feb. 18, 2015 in Mexico. Thanks to all of Sooke for keeping the surprise wedding a secret from the bride! What an amazing surprise. Pirjo Raits photos

Vera Banner Appleby holds the token found by Ivan Bjornholt with his metal detector. The Woodside farmhouse is in the background. school romances go, it was over before it really began and Van Ek either lost, buried or tossed the token into a field by the farmhouse. “It’s nice to know after 55 years some things are still kicking around,” said an amused Banner. Banner was back visiting Sooke and had heard about the token from her cousin Darla

on Facebook. “History comes back and gets you,” she said. Bjornholt, who unearthed the token was excited that the long lost token was recognized. “Everything has a story behind it, some you can only imagine, but this one — we found the story behind it. I get a kick out of it if I can trace things back,”

said Bjornholt. He said he found the token about two-feet down in the middle of the field at Woodside. He is enthused about finding old bits and pieces with his metal detector. “Most of the time it’s just nails and scrap iron.” Woodside Farm is the oldest continually operated farm in Brit-

ish Columbia. Pete Wilfred said the field has been continually plowed up for the past 50 years. There are plans afoot to see the history of the Woodside farm made into a movie or video. Woodside Farm was settled by the Muir family in 1851.

Community Scrabble tournament raises funds for literacy

What is a seven-letter, 14-point word for all-ages fun? S-c-r-a-b-bl-e, the world’s leading board game and one renowned for helping players develop essential vocabulary, spelling, math and spatial relation skills. The EMCS Society is hosting its first Scrabble tournament on Saturday, March 28 from 1 to 5 p.m at Edward Milne Community School. Players can register in “casual” or “competitive” categories by calling the EMCS Society office at (250) 642-6371. The $10 entry fee guarantees a minimum of three 20-minute games. Top scorers from the opening rounds will then enter a knock-out tournament leading to the semi-final and finals. These games

will be broadcast on the theatre’s big screen in front of an audience sworn to silence as the players ponder their moves. This is a BYOB&D (bring your own board and dictionary) tournament. As the competition continues, eliminated players will be encouraged to set up games of their own in the lobby under the whale. Word challenges will be adjudicated by Sooke Mayor Maja Tait based on the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary. Anne Boquist and Diane Kent, who have matched wits most weekday mornings at the Stick in the Mud since the cafe opened, will be on hand to teach “squabble,” their lively variation on the traditional game. Spectators are welcome by donation (toonie suggested). A student art show and silent auction of donated merchandise and services will also help raise funds. Proceeds will be split

between the annual EMCS Society Play and Learn Camp, which helps youngsters aged six to nine catch up on literacy skills during the summer break, and the Sooke Region Literacy Task Group’s book-buying program

YA R D S A L E

for young readers. A portion of the day’s take will also go to the EMCS Society’s “munch card” program, which funds nutritious lunches and other healthy initiatives for students through EMCS Culinary Arts.

Charming Country Estate With Views

In a way it seems like yesterday but it’s actually 50 years since this photo was taken of the teaching staff of Edward Milne Secondary School. The high school had started out in 1946 as Milne’s Landing High, and much later, in 1987, it became Edward Milne Community School. This photo was taken in the gymnasium of the earlier building which stood further back in the field than the current distinctive whale-tailed school structure. Many folk, whether resident in Sooke or throughout the western world, and now of middle age, will remember being taught by these teachers. Standing, rear: Mr Creed, Mrs. Creed, Dennis Kershaw, Ingrid Greenlees, Stella Lajeunesse, Paul Rothe. Seated, front: Mr. Rennison, Peggy Oke, Kay Maughan, principal Eugene Maglio, Lewis Seens, Mrs. Carr, Sheila Scrase. Five of the teachers in this photo were living in Sooke: Ingrid Greenlees, Stella Lajeunesse, Peggy Oke, Kay Maughan and Eugene

Maglio, with the balance commuting from Victoria. Dennis Kershaw taught Math at the school for many years and became wellknown in the community. Ingrid Greenlees taught at Leechtown, at Sooke Elementary, then Milne’s Landing, then went on to Bridge River in the Interior. Stella Lajeunesse taught at Sooke School, then it was on to New Math at Milne’s Landing. She became known for volunteering her time at home to tutor students in Math. Two of her own youngsters survive her in Sooke today, Gail Hall and Danny Lajeunesse. If my memory is right, Paul Rothe taught Physical Education and Sheila Scrase taught Home Economics. Kay Maughan taught English and she and her husband boarded the Port Renfrew students during the week at their spacious home on Felton Road. Peggy Oke taught French, History, served as Librarian, and was mother to a large family, most of whom are living in our area today. One of her daughters

in particular, Patricia Handy, is well known to many, as she is the manager of the Visitor Info Centre at the Sooke Region Museum, besides playing “Tilly” in Moss Cottage. When Eugene Maglio, from the Interior, became principal, he and his wife and family of five moved to Sooke. They weren’t here long, though, as

he responded to a call as principal at Yellowknife, YT. Lewis Seens of Victoria followed him as principal until he moved on in 1972. It’s a bit of a shock to realize that today the teaching staff numbers 70, under principal Pat Swinburnson. Elida Peers, Historian Sooke Region Museum

EDITORIAL CARTOON

Pets and wildlife fill council agenda Animals, animals, and more animals were the focal point of delegations coming before District of Sooke council on Monday night. A representative came forward once again to request land for a cat shelter even though her organization is no longer based in Sooke. The complaint was that Sooke did not support the efforts of the organization in rescuing cats and the CRD was paid to look after animal control. One does not get the support of any elected body when they continually slam the council and berate their decisions. Another came to the microphone to complain about cats and the mess and smell they left in her yard. She wanted some controls over cats, like one would with dogs. Then a gentleman came to plead his case about snakes. He bred snakes and he wanted the list of approved snakes in the exotic pet category to include some non-dangerous species of boas and pythons. The council supported an amendment to the Animal Regulation and Impounding Bylaw to prohibit the feeding of wildlife within the district. So it is with animals. People are passionate about their pets and many care for them like they are part of the family. Others dump cats and leave it to others to take care of them. Many feed the deer, rabbits, squirrels etc. thereby lessening their fear of humans. They become acclimatized to urban areas and many end up being hit by cars. And no one wants all their plants and flowers eaten by deer unafraid of humans. So what is the most humane solution? Can feral cats be domesticated? Probably not. Should we include boas and pythons as breeding stock? That would depend on an individual situation. Should we feed wildlife. That answer would have to be ‘no.’ Caring and empathy for animals needs to be realistic not idealistic. We don’t live in Disneyland.

ANOTHER VIEW

Seniors’ advocate strikes a chord B.C. Views B.C.’s new seniors’ advocate has issued her second report, and the media mostly ignored it. When this new office was promised by a campaigning Premier Christy Clark two years ago, I suggested that B.C. already has 85 seniors’ advocates. They’re called MLAs, and inquiries go to their local offices. Much to the chagrin of the opposition, Seniors’ Advocate Isobel Mackenzie’s mandate is not to pursue individual cases, and so she won’t be serving up a fresh assortment of horror stories to embarrass the government. Instead, it is to look for “systemic challenges” and recommend ways to deal with them. The latest report is based on a survey of more than 500 seniors from around the province, and the key finding was not what she expected. “We were surprised to learn of the lack of awareness among seniors, particularly low-income seniors, of government programs and the subsidies available to assist them,” Mackenzie said. The survey found that 60 per cent of seniors living on $30,000 or less annual income didn’t know they are eligible for discounts on Medical Services Plan premiums. For income less than $22,000, the entire $864 cost of individual MSP premiums is waived.

Other frequently overlooked programs are a monthly rent subsidy called Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER), grants for disability modifications called Home Adaptations for Independence, drug cost assistance called Fair Pharmacare, property tax deferment and the federal Guaranteed Income Supplement program. Those older than 75 with income of less than $30,000 reported the lowest awareness of assistance designed specifically for them. But you don’t get these benefits unless you apply and show that your income qualifies. The survey also found that the biggest fear of low-income seniors is that they won’t be able to afford to stay in their homes. See home adaptation, property tax and rent subsidy programs above. Awareness and usage of the SAFER program was lowest in the north and highest in urban areas, perhaps not surprising since the B.C. government exists more in theory than in fact in many remote places. So what should the government do about this? Well, it could advertise these programs. The government does lots of advertising, but not about old news like the SAFER program, which dates back to the 1970s. Clark’s government did a whack of advertising in the election year, 2013. Much of it was about the B.C. Jobs Plan, heavy on the hardhats and blueprint-style graphics and arc

welding and stuff like that. Then last year the government’s big ad campaign was around the teachers’ strike, and the payments to parents to help with child care while teachers demanded twice as big a raise as all the other unions. Education Minister Peter Fassbender is still bragging about the response rate for $40-a-day parental strike pay, which was snapped up by almost 100 per cent of eligible parents. This demonstrates that the government can indeed give away money with great efficiency, just by telling people how to get it. The NDP’s version of seniors’ advocacy is to find the most tragic problems from complaints coming into constituency offices, and use those to ambush the government. A popular choice is an elderly couple who have to be separated because their medical needs are too different to keep them in the same facility. TV news loves that one. People cry on camera and denounce politicians for being heartless, as if the health minister stayed up late plotting how to break their granny’s heart. Maybe this seniors’ advocate wasn’t such a bad idea after all. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Twitter: @tomfletcherbc Email: tfletcher@ blackpress.ca

Bullying awareness On behalf of all who stood together on this cold and damp day, I thank you for coming out. But I would sincerely like to apologize to all you school children who did not see us, as you drove by on the buses, and we were not there to give you the encouragement so many of you were entitled to. If your mom or dad should read this to you, know full well our hearts go out to you. Our group will be out again someday and I know we can and will do better. Bill Jones Sooke

Food bank need increases An interesting arti-

Wednesday, MARCH March 11, 2015 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR WEDNESDAY,

letters

cle appeared in your Letters to the Editor, March 4 edition. A letter from Ted Roberts titled “Tax the careless.” At the Sooke Food Bank there is an accountability structure in place that documents the number of our clients. It seems that the preferred fiscal year for any tax or rate increase begins on April 1. Last year on that date, Hydro rates were raised by 24 per cent. It takes some time for cause and effect and coincidentally our client numbers for the Sooke Food Bank increased from a monthly average of 243 hampers from January to May, to an average of 295 from June to November. That’s an additional 52 households. I suspect that our clients preferred to spend

their small monthly earnings on necessary heat, hot water and light. It is but for the grace of the many kind citizens of Sooke and area, and some limited small grants that we diligently apply for, from anywhere we can get them, that they got food on the table for their children. It is an excellent budgeting practice for big business and government to project costs for the fiscal year, however our clients have to budget day to day, they do not have the luxury of a credit line nor have any other alternative for food survival. I firmly believe the Sooke Food Bank provides an essential service to the community and are there to assist in times like these. April 1 is coming again. Mike Thomas Sooke Food Bank

Kids speak Our names are Chloe Unger (11) and Finn Unger (8). On February 23, our Sooke council unanimously passed Rupert Yakelashek’s motion to declare our right to a healthy environment. We attended that council meeting, which was our first, and we were so impressed and inspired by our mayor and the councillors, who listened and responded so positively. The peoples of the T’Sou-ke Nation tell us that the Sooke hills, the rivers and streams, the beaches, and all the land in our region is our backyard, our garden, and provides us with everything that we need and will every need – food, energy, water, fresh air, play, joy and happiness. But the oceans are getting acidic and the seafood is dying. The rivers are polluted Cont’d from page 22

IF YOU WERE AN OWNER OF A VESSEL THAT WAS ISSUED A CATEGORY L COMMERCIAL HALIBUT FISHING LICENSE BETWEEN 2001 AND 2006 IF YOU WERE AN OWNER OF A VESSEL THAT WAS ISSUED YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS COULD BEFISHING AFFECTED BY A CLASS A CATEGORY L COMMERCIAL HALIBUT LICENSE BETWEEN 2001ACTION AND 2006 YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS COULD BE AFFECTED BY A CLASS ACTION Background A class action has been certified that alleges that a Department of Fisheries and Oceans scheme to divert individual vessel quota (IVQ) representing 10% of the Total Allowable Catch to the Pacific Halibut Management Association (“PHMA”) for resale back to individual commercial halibut license holders was unlawful and seeks restitution on behalf of members of the Class and Subclass for additional amounts paid by them for the diverted IVQ. The Class Action A class action lawsuit, Burnell v. Canada (Attorney General) (British Columbia Supreme Court Action No. S077807) (the “Class Action”) was brought against the Attorney General of Canada (the “Defendant”) alleging that the conduct of the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans with respect to the fisheries management program it implemented through PHMA was unlawful and enriched the federal government unlawfully at the expense of the Class and Subclass members. The Class Action was certified by the Court on February 18, 2014 (amended on June 13, 2014) on behalf of a Class, represented by Barry Jim Burnell, consisting of: All owners of fishing vessels with a Category L Commercial Halibut License to fish for halibut issued by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans (“Licensed Vessels”) at any time between 2001 and 2006 inclusive who purchased quota from PHMA, except for the following: (i) the holder of license L-437; (ii) First Nations fishers holding Category FL Commercial Halibut Fishing licenses; and, (iii) members of the subclass. Individuals who meet this definition qualify as Class Members and are represented by the law firms of Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman and Ellis Business Lawyers (“Class Counsel”). In addition, on June 13, 2014, the action was certified on behalf of a Subclass, represented by Lorne Nels David Iverson, consisting of: All owners of fishing vessels with a Category L Commercial Halibut License to fish for halibut issued by the Minster of Fisheries and Oceans (“Licensed Vessels”) between 2001 and 2006 inclusive (the “Material Time”) for which quota was purchased from PHMA and: (a) who at any time during the Material Time: i. were directors of PHMA; or, ii. were corporations in which a PHMA director owned more than 50% of the shares; or (b) who claim that they were in a partnership with a PHMA director in relation to a Licensed Vessel and the purchase of quota from PHMA at any time during the Material Time. Individuals who meet this definition qualify as Subclass Members and are represented by the law firm of Underhill, Boies Parker (“Subclass Counsel”). The claims of the representative plaintiffs (Barry Burnell and Lorne Iverson) will be used to determine the legal responsibility of the Defendant to compensate the Class and Subclass members for the alleged losses suffered.

Judgment on the common issues for the Class and Subclass whether favourable or not will bind all Class Members and Subclass Members who do not opt out of the proceeding. You will be bound by the result of the Class Action whether the lawsuit is successful or unsuccessful and will not be able to start or pursue your own legal claim against the Defendant. The common issues can be found at www.cfmlawyers.ca/active-litigation/commercial-halibut-fishing/ or by request from Class Counsel or Subclass Counsel. If the Class Action is successful in obtaining recovery from the Defendant on behalf of the Class Members and Subclass Members, then they will be entitled to share in the recovery. If you opt out of the Class Action, you do not have this right. Class Members or Subclass Members who opt out of the Class Action may start their own lawsuits, but will not be able to claim any recovery in this Class Action whether through judgment or settlement. Residents of British Columbia If you are a resident of British Columbia and qualify as a Class Member or Subclass Member and you wish to participate in the Class Action, you do not have to do anything. You will automatically be included in the Class. If you do not wish to participate in the class action you must opt-out by completing and mailing the opt-out form to Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman, 4th Floor, 856 Homer Street, Vancouver, BC V6B 2W5 postmarked by no later than May 4, 2015. The opt-out form can be found at: www.cfmlawyers.ca/active-litigation/commercial-halibut-fishing/ or can be requested by contacting Lise Carmichael at 604-689-7555. If you do not opt-out by the deadline you will automatically be included in the Class Action. Non-residents of British Columbia If you are a non-resident of British Columbia, qualify as a Class Member or Subclass Member, and you wish to participate in the Class Action, then you must opt-in by completing and mailing the optin form to: Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman, 4th Floor, 856 Homer St., Vancouver, B.C., V6B 2W5 postmarked by no later than May 4, 2015. The opt-in form can be found at: www.cfmlawyers.ca/active-litigation/commercial-halibut-fishing/ or can be requested by contacting Lise Carmichael at 604-689-7555. Class Counsel and Subclass Counsel The law firms of Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman (604-6897555) and Ellis Business Lawyers (604-688-7374) represent the Class Members. Underhill, Boies Parker (604-696-9828) represents the Subclass Members. Firm websites are found online at www.cfmlawyers.ca; www.ellislawyers.com and www.ubplaw.ca. If you are uncertain whether you belong to the Class or the Subclass, you may contact either of the firms above and they will assist you accordingly. Class Counsel and Subclass Counsel will together be seeking fees up to a maximum of one third of the value of any settlement or judgment plus disbursements and applicable taxes as a first charge on any recovery, to be approved by the British Columbia Supreme Court. The fee agreement is subject to court approval and the approved fee may be less than the maximum. This notice has been approved by the British Columbia Supreme Court.

The Pastor's Pen Living on the Edge

Many road accidents are caused when drivers get too close to the edge of the road, and then get pulled into the gravel shoulder. Loss of control, through the rapid change in the road surface quickly pulls the vehicle where it should not go! In the same way, as we journey through life, we can easily be lured into living so close to the edge that we often fall in to bad behaviours. How close to the edge we find ourselves with what we fill our pastimes with, such as what we are watching on television or reading in books and magazines! Are these really the values we want in our lives? How close to the edge we find ourselves when we fill our lives with busyness! Happiness and contentment are not measured by activity, but by the value found in quiet and reflective moments that add depth to life. How close to the edge we find ourselves when we are not content with all that we have so we constantly seek more! Fulfillment is never found in the gathering of ‘things’ but only in deep and committed relationships. Just as the person who drives too close to the edge may not be aware of how close they are to losing control, we need to be more careful, and find those sources of wisdom to direct us. The Bible is a “rumble strip” to wake us up and give us clear warnings that we are near the edge, and shows us how to keep on the straight and narrow. The Bible is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Timothy 3:16.

comes in handy when Roy tapes his semi-regular and popular Snap Crackle Pop show for CBC Radio. And, as of April 2006, Roy now does a weekly radio show for CKUA Radio Network – Roy’s Record Room. Roy gives back to his community by participating as a resource leader at songwriting workshops across Canada, an offshoot of his work with the Songwriters Association of Canada. Roy sat on the board of that organization for eight years. In June, 2007, Northern Lights College gave Roy an honourary arts degree, in recognition of his work over the past three and a half decades. As well, the City of Dawson Creek named a street in his honour – Roy Forbes Drive. Roy’s long awaited new album is finally ready for release. Strikin’ Matches - LIVE! was recorded at several of Roy’s solo shows between 2011 and 2013. The entire combina-

This Sunday evening, March 15, the Sooke Folk Music Society is extremely proud and honoured to be presenting Roy Forbes, one of this country’s most gifted singer/songwriters at Holy Trinity Anglican Church. In July 1971, 18-yearold Roy Forbes left Dawson Creek for the bright lights of Vancouver. His songwriting, singing and guitar playing landed him immediate local attention with a late 1971 headlinemaking appearance at Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Roy and his trusty Gurian guitar have toured extensively in Canada and the U.S. over these past three decades. From the early days of small coffee houses and opening act slots with artists like John Lee Hooker, Supertramp, The Earl Scruggs Revue and Santana to eventually selling out his own shows and headlining most of the major folk music festivals in Canada, Forbes has developed into one of Canada’s best loved acoustic performers. Through the years Roy made a bunch of solo albums plus two with UHF (the ‘oncein-a-while’ group he shares with Shari Ulrich and Bill Henderson), as well as a Christmas album with Connie Kaldor. The first, Kid Full Of Dreams, received a Juno nomination in 1976 while 1998’s Crazy Old Moon, received a 1999 Juno nomination and a 1999 West Coast Music Award, one of several WCMAs Roy has received over the years. One sunny day in June 2005 he decided to make a musical present for his mother and went into a studio with Vancouver guitar ace Robbie Steininger, laying down 14 tracks between 10 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. Of those he kept 12. In 2006, he released the new album - Some Tunes For That Mother Of Mine. The wonderfully austere collection of 11 covers and one jaw-dropping new original pays tribute to the songs he grew up hearing in his snowy Dawson Creek hometown. Forbes’ songs have always been performed and recorded by other people: Susan Jacks (of the Poppy Fam-

Letters and the salmon aren’t surviving. The eagles’ eggs are so fragile, and eaglets are not hatching. The land is contaminated by pesticides and fertilizers, and the food that we eat from it is contaminating us. I think our own eggs are becoming fragile. Without clean water and clear air and healthy soil, we have nothing. Rupert is our friend, and we are very proud and inspired by him. He is influencing all sorts of communities, many on the south island, to pass this motion. We love what he is doing to protect what we still have of our natural environment. We have our lives still ahead of us and will need our environment to be healthy for a long time still. My grandparents just don’t seem to get how serious that is, how scary it is for us and Rupert and Franny his sister, our friends Nathan and Erin and a few others who are thinking about all this and what our future is going to look like. We can’t vote or be councillors yet, but our voices should still be heard. We need to have some sort of say in decisions you make but won’t be around for to see if it actually all works out. Thank you Sooke council, Mayor Tait and all the Sooke councillors (especially Brenda Parkinson who made sure it got voted on) for protecting our right to a healthy environment in Sooke, on Vancouver Island (where so far Victoria, North Saanich, the Highlands, Langford, and Metchosin have passed it too, and everywhere.

DEATHS

Ken MacDonald

30 March 1944 - 3 March 2015 Ken MacDonald passed away peacefully 3 March 2015 at his home surrounded by his wife Mim, and all four of his children. He was born in Port au Port Newfoundland. He is survived and will be dearly missed by his wife Mim, children Christie, Tammy (Paul), Marcus (Kim), Scott (Claudia), and stepdaughter Leah. Grandchildren, Braden, Trentin, Cassidy, Sonia, Kelsey and Liam. His siblings Karl, Jean, Julie, Margaret and Gennie. He is remembered by many special friends too many to mention. He served with the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1961 to 1992 and settled in Sooke BC in 1992. His postings included, Rivers Manitoba, Zweibrucken Germany, Winnipeg Manitoba, Summerside PEI, Baden Germany, Comox BC, and Toronto Ont. After retirement he worked for 16 years selling Real Estate in the Sooke Area. He loved the water and spent his retirement years skiing, fishing, golfing, playing shuffleboard and organizing pool and Golf Tournaments. An active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, he will be missed by the Golf and Pool players and all the other members for his Newfie jokes and humour. He was a benevolent man who with his wife strongly supported the Legion (especially as Mim’s Souschef for all the Remembrance Day Ceremonies etc), the Lions, the Lionesses, the Food Bank and other charitable organizations. Ken asked that in lieu of flowers donations be made to RCL Branch 54 General Fund. A Celebration of Life will be held in the RCL Branch #54 Sooke BC 22 March 2015 at 1 pm.

How the Ball Rolls: Sooke Soccer Association News With the sun shining and fields nice and green this past Saturday, Sooke’s soccer teams were all charged and ready kick butt. SSC is proud to announce that six out of nine youth teams have made it to District Cup Finals! U13 boys beat Gorge 3-1 to kick off the weekend of Cup play.  U13 girls lost against Cowichan in overtime PK sudden death shoot out.  It was a very exciting nail biter of a game with the fields lined with parents and players cheering the girls on as their game delayed the start of the next two games.  Tough way to lose but the girls should be proud of their efforts this season... a tight-knit team coached by the amazing Jay Wright and Paul Homer.  This team is going to go far in the future!  The U14 Boys played their District Cup Semi-Final game vs Peninsula under the lights Thursday evening. 

SNIPPET ⍟ SEAPARC Spring Break

Peninsula was short a few players and the final score was 8-0 for Sooke. The boys are looking forward to the Finals March 28/29 on home turf.   Coach Tim Satterford, Manager Cherie Duncan   U14 girls triumphant victory over Juan de Fuca (JDF) 2-0 makes these Wildcats hungry for the cup! Tight game with super pressure from Sooke off the get go made this extremely exciting to watch, and coach! Battle battle battle, pressure pressure pressure... Sooke gets a PK because of a foul by JDF goalie on striker Layla.  Faith called to take the PK.  She’s like what, me? I’m like Yeah.  You.  Like you can.  With calm confidence she rocked it into the top left corner and had us up 1-0 at the half.

Campers, set your alarm clocks to wake up from dreams of roasted hotdogs and riverside hikes, Discover Camping, the Province’s camping reservation system, opens for business at 9 a.m. Sunday, March 15, 2015. Just a few clicks is all it takes to reserve a frontcountry campsite in many provincial parks, up to three months in advance through the Discover Camping website (www.DiscoverCamping.ca). Bookings can also be made throughthe call centre

at 1 800 689-9025. Up to three reservations can be made easily for those avid explorers looking to book more than one camping excursion. New for the 2015 camping season, families can now reserve campsites in Summit Lake, Juniper Lake, Whiskers Point and Kootenay Lake provincial parks. More campsites are also available in Mount Robson and Kentucky Alleyne provincial parks. This year, Haynes Point and Okanagan

Falls provincial parks are being managed by the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB). Campers to these Interior parks can expect the same recreational opportunities enjoyed previously. The Province and OIB are working to have both parks open April 1, 2015, for the camping season, and for Haynes Point to be on the Discover Camping system. The campground at Okanagan Falls remains first-come, first-serve. The interactive reservation website transports campers to their

Sooke’s Wildcats sparing no kicks against JDF at last Saturday’s soccer match. Momentum was strong and the girls were fired up. Scared us coaches a bit here and there, but then baddabing-baddaboom here comes Chalmers with a chance, running up the side like a gazelle, she cuts in and fires her rocket of a lefty shot to find the back of the net.  2-0 Sooke.  Gotta say we were all pretty pumped at that point!  With our solid defence line - the magnificent Makenna, speedy Sky, bulldozer Shae and gonna-get-em Georgia, super sweepers smarty pants Ciara and happening Hannah Paige sweeping up spectacularly, strong midfielders – the gritty Grace, amazing Alex and chopper Chalmers, and strong strikers - fabulous Faith, sensible Sarah, Emazing Emma, leader Layla and admirable Addison, these Wildcats kept up the pressure until the clock ran out. Outstanding performance by our aggressive attacking GK - the exceptional Ella got herself a much deserved shut out!  After a tough season with many ties and many 1 or 2 goal losses... we want the cup.  We want it bad. Cup Finals will be held at Fred Milne Park March 28 - 29. Coach Laura Lockhart and Dave Peters   U15/16 girls made it into the finals by default as their opponent forfeited. U15 and U17/18 boys lost tough battles against JDF.    The U16 Sooke Shredders proved hard work pays off. Cowichan drew first but our Sooke boys tied it up in the first half with a goal from Matthew Miller and assist from Chris Berkeley. We started the second half tied and credit needs to be given to both goalies as they were very busy however Sooke prevailed with a beauty of a goal from Matthew Miller which was assisted by Hagen Harold’s awesome in direct kick! End result Sooke 2 Cowichan 1. Coach Michelle Berkeley   What a game on Sunday (March 8) for the U17 Autobots  playing against Bays U18 girls at Fred Milne Park.  Sooke strikers scored first in the tenth minute by Taylor Benard assisted by Hailey Dimock.  Sooke back line being challenged,  Sidney Drysdale,  Kiomi Yates,  Katija Pallot,  Rachael Wiebe played tight with vision,  winning the ball with good distribution.  Sooke Mid fielders Jaime LafonContinued from page 27

taine, Chloe Mitchell,  Riley McLean,  Hailey Bryant,  Cheyenne Williamson,  played with finesse. Sooke having many opportunies,  how ever Bays tied it up with a goal in the second half,  Bays scored a second goal to take the lead,  Sooke had many shots on goal to score,  they would not go in. Hailey Dimock scored big in the 88 min. to tie it up.  Regulation time ended with it tied 2-2.  Extra time was played,  both teams battling for a goal,  Sooke had many opportunities,  but were not able to score.  The match was still tied at over time,  Both teams went to a shut out.  Goal keeper Hope Millard was stellar under pressure,  saving two shots,  shooters for Sooke Autobots,  Taylor Benard, Riliey McLean,  Kiomi Yates,  Kaija Pallot all were successful,  thanks Tim, Sooke Autobots advance to Finals of District Cup  meeting Peninsula Coach Wendy Cole

From last week:

A win, a loss, and a tie for the Sooke U10 Girls Strikers Prospect Lake tournament (February 28, 29). First game Saturday, Strikers win big 3-1. Second game Saturday, though top notch goalie Shaela saves repeated shots from JDF, Strikers, Madeline, Sadie, and Chloe’s attempts to score were met with resistance from JDF, with a loss of 1-3. Sunday, the Strikers were well rested and ready to put the heat on the Zebra Tacos! With a perfect chip to top corner from the Zebra Tacos forward, goalie Danielle Lembcke had no chance to concede the only goal by the Zebra Tacos.  Striker’s defence, Hailey, Madeline and Sofia shut the forward line down at the half to give forward Allison, the opportunity, who brought her A game and persistence, even though shot after shot, Allison just couldnt break past the Zebra Tacos spectacular Goalie, but finally with seconds left before the whistle, Allison gets a beautiful rebound off the Zebra Tacos defender, and sends the ball to the back of the net! A tie to end the tournament weekend. A well-played tournament by all the Sooke Strikers! Colleen Lembcke Asst.Coach and Manager

Reminder: Get your kit together Sooke area Residents - including Port Renfrew to East Sooke and all points between - last week we announced here a program in which local businesses would offer some discount on items which you may want to include in building your home based Disaster Preparedness Kit. Imagine something the size of an outside garbage can - fairly strong, weather resistant, rodent proof, not too big to carry or drag with your name on it. Whether is be a severe earthquake, wildfire, heavy isolating snow or rain and wind storm the potential exists for any of us  as individuals or communities to be isolated from supplies, food, electricity and our neighbours for a significant period of time. A well-chosen emergency kit   containing your daily healthcare items, spare clothing, shelter and food items, communication devices such as hand crank radios and lights, medium sized tarp, water or filter straw and sanitation items. Copies of passport information, insurance , family or contacts from out-of-town, photos of your family, pets and home can all be kept on a memory device, and several days worth of

long lasting food items are all things to consider. The Canadian Red Cross and other agencies list items of considered essential and recommended on their websites - the B.C. governments site “Personal and Family Preparedness” is an excellent resource providing ideas on planning, regional resources and more. Complete kits of various sizes will be offered at discounts as well. Next we we get the ball rolling - homebased Disaster Preparedness Kit. It’s one of those things you’d rather have, than wish you had. You probably won’t be able to just go to the store for many of the items when you need them. We are reminding you, many local businesses are helping you - now it’s up to you. Stay tuned   and watch for next weeks coupon, and just do it and ‘Get your Kit together!’ - See you next week!

Angling licence revenue to benefit anglers One hundred per cent of revenue generated from fishing licences will directly benefit anglers effective April 1, 2015, under an agreement announced today between the province and the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. Under the agreement the total amount to be transferred to the society for 2015-16 will be approximately $10 million, an increase of about $3 million annually over what the society currently receives. Previously the society’s activities were focused primarily on stocking of smaller lakes. The additional funding will allow the society to work with provincial biologists to improve angling opportunities in small lakes, large lakes and rivers. This includes angler access improvements, stock assessment to help inform management decisions, and resources to enhance capacity for compliance monitoring and enforcement on both stocked and wild waterbodies. Just recently, Kemp and Poirier Lakes have been restocked. Surcharges on licences for the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund will not be affected by the new arrangement. The fund will continue to receive 100% of the licence surcharge dedicated to habitat conservation under the new arrangement. In 2003, the Province signed a 30-year contract with the Freshwa-

ter Fisheries Society of BC to be a non-profit delivery partner with a mandate to conserve and enhance freshwater fishing opportunities in B.C. The agreement is now amended to reflect the additional revenue that will be directed to the society. The society is now recognized as one of the most progressive and accomplished fisheries management organizations in North America generating economic benefits and providing world-class angling opportunities.

Quick Facts: -The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC stocks about 800 waterbodies with over eight million trout, char and kokanee produced from the five provincial fish hatcheries operated by the society for that purpose. - There are approximately 330,000 anglers throughout the province. - There are 24 species of fish available for angling. - Over 150,000 youth and their families have participated in the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC’s Learn to Fish program since its inception in 2006.
