‘I was right’ Daniel Palmer/News staff

Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell addresses reporters outside the B.C. legislature on Monday, after the Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham released a damning report into the District’s improper use of employee monitoring software. Denham launched her investigation after Atwell publicly aired his concerns over the spyware on Jan. 12.

Spyware use violated privacy laws, says watchdog Saanich staff displayed ‘deep lack of understanding’ on privacy laws: Commissioner Daniel Palmer News staff

B.C.’s privacy watchdog is blasting officials at the District of Saanich for their “deep lack of understanding” about privacy rights and laws in a report on the District’s use of employee monitoring software. The Spector 360 program, which is capable of monitoring computer keystrokes, instant messaging applications and capturing screenshots, was installed on the computer of Mayor Richard Atwell and 12 other stations on Dec. 2, the day after Atwell and councillors assumed office. Atwell made his concerns about the software publicly

And it took Elizabeth Denham to come out with tion and Privacy Commissioner. In her report, Elizabeth Denham said the her own investigation to validate what I was District failed to properly notify employees saying in the first place.” In an interview, Denham said she initiabout the installation and use of Spector ated the investigation into 360. Denham also found “the Saanich’s use of the spyDistrict’s submissions to my “This is not the ware because she noticed a office demonstrate a deep lack of understanding about 20th century anymore.” general lack of understanding around privacy rights in the most basic tenets of the Act, such as what constitutes -Elizabeth Denham, B.C. the workplace. She was also privacy commissioner concerned that the District the collection of personal would possibly continue to information.” At a press conference held Monday on use the spyware based on media reports the grounds of the B.C. legislature, Atwell at the time. “This is not the 20th century anymore,” said he feels vindicated in his belief that the Denham said. “Here was a case where there spyware crossed the line. “This is bigger than Saanich. It’s (about) appeared to be a very hurried decision to personal privacy for employees, citizens purchase off-the-shelf software to address and elected officials that goes beyond our some shortcomings in IT security with no consideration that they were even collectborders,” Atwell said. “I’m very concerned how we got to this ing personal information.”

Denham also criticized a Jan. 13 District press release that stated its employees had no reasonable expectation of privacy while using workplace computers. “Employees don’t check their privacy rights at the office door,” Denham said. “There are shades of grey … and tools that are reasonable in the office place, but keystroke logging and screen scraping and comprehensive monitoring in real-time of what employees are doing is seldom acceptable.” Also on Jan. 13, Coun. Judy Brownoff told reporters: “I want to assure the public that our security measures protect Saanich’s database and everything on the system. Our staff are in charge to ensure it’s secure.” Denham’s report makes clear that line of reasoning – that the software was installed to better protect the District’s IT resources – was faulty.

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Uptown Future Shop to open as Best Buy Future Shop closed all of its stores – including the Saanich location in Uptown – on Saturday, shutting down 66 locations for good and transition the other 65 over to Best Buy. There will be a total of 192 Best Buys in Canada. A total of 1,500 jobs will be lost with the move – 500 full-time, 1,000 parttime. The Uptown location will transition after a one-week closure into Best Buy. Future Shop’s website has already been shut down – all traffic is being re-directed to BestBuy.ca. On Vancouver Island, Future Shop locations include Saanich, Langford, Nanaimo, Duncan, and Courtenay/Cumberland. In the Interior, Future Shop had stores in Kelowna, Vernon, and Kamloops, and north in Prince George. In the Lower Mainland, stores will close/rebrand in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, Port Coquitlam, Surrey, Langley, White Rock/South Surrey, Abbotsford, Mission, and Chilliwack. ”Currently, 80 per cent of our customers are within a 15-minute drive to a store and this won’t change,” said Best Buy’s president, Ron Wilson. “Any decisions that impact our people are never taken lightly; our first priority is to support them through this change. I want to express my appreciation to the employees who are leaving, for their contributions to Best Buy Canada.” Future Shop was founded in 1982 in Vancouver by Hassan Khosrowshahi. By its 10th year, Future Shop had become the largest tech and electronic store in the country. editor@saanichnews.com

Pharmacists Jaya and Chandra Erant owned the Target pharmacy franchise that moved on March 4 (the store closed permanently on March 30). On March 5, they opened JC Pharmacy at 2113214 Douglas St. The independent pharamacy is their second attempt at going solo. Travis Paterson/News staff

Community rallies for former Target pharmacists displaced by closure Travis Paterson News staff

As the Target at Tillicum Centre closes its doors for good this week, the owners of its short-lived pharmacy within the Tillicum store are celebrating their one-month anniversary at a new location. Husband and wife pharmacist team Chandra and Jaya Erant previously owned and operated Target’s Tillicum pharmacy, which shuttered its doors permanently in a Canadawide closure Monday. On March 5, the Erants opened JC Pharmacy at 3214 Douglas St., their second attempt at owning a pharmacy. But this time, they’re going independent. “We’re very blessed to be able to open our own space, because of the loyal clientele we had at Target,” Chandra said. Both were research scientists in the pharmaceutical industry before they left Ontario for Saanich. Chandra began working at the Zellers’ pharmacy seven years ago and was the manager when it closed. He was acknowledged by Target for his cus-

tomer service, as his pharmacy had the highest sales of any Target pharmacy in Western Canada despite the Tillicum store’s struggles. Target gave his store an award for its customer service and Chandra was told just a week before the Jan. 15 announcement that the rumours of a Target closure were untrue. “I had known the (Zellers’) client base for so many years, making so many great relationships,” Chandra said. “After they came back from the (nine month wait between) Zellers’ closure until Target opened, I couldn’t digest telling them we were closing a second time.” Chandra applauded Target’s pharmacy franchise model, which demanded only that the business owners secured a $150,000 business line of credit with a fully stocked inventory of about $100,000. It saved him from losing any upfront franchise fees, and as a result he came out relatively unscathed. But he lamented over seeing so many Target workers lose their jobs. Some of those same workers have been giving out Chandra’s new address and location to wayward clients who were showing up at Target only to find the pharmacy already shut.

Chandra had a chance to sell the business, but when more than 1,500 of the Target pharmacy clients put their name and number on a loyalty list, Chandra and Jaya had the confidence to open their own pharmacy. “We called every number, it was a lot of work,” Chandra said. “I was told by local experts I couldn’t open my own pharmacy in less than 12 weeks, maybe 10, but we did it in four weeks thanks to some amazing help. Some tradesman dropped their other jobs to help us get set up and we are indebted to them.” The College of Pharmacists of B.C. escalated the process of approvals too, he said. “It’s a simple store space designed to serve prescriptions and we can add furniture as we go, but we already have the over-the-counter basics, with more coming.” Target is pulling the plug on all 133 locations across Canada. Tillicum Centre is owned and operated by national corporation RioCan, which is losing 26 Target stores across the country, representing 1.9 per cent of RioCan’s annual rent revenue. reporter@saanichnews.com

The B.C. government is giving itself new authority to regulate ongoing teacher training, possibly requiring completion of new programs for teachers to maintain certification. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said there are currently no detailed requirements for certified teachers to stay current with new education techniques. Those requirements are to be worked out with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, which was notified only hours before changes to the School Act were introduced in the legislature Thursday. “There is no legislated requirement for professional development, nor is there a definition of what the route to that might be and what some of those tools are,” Fassbender told reporters Thursday. “That is why it is important that we work with the teaching profession to define that moving forward, and that’s what this bill allows us to do.” There is no change to the five professional development days per school year that are currently part of the BCTF contract, or any requirement in the legislation that new training be delivered during those days. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Jim Iker said education ministry officials have assured him there will be two years of consultation before changes to professional development are imposed. Any changes “need to be properly funded and respect teachers’ professional autonomy,” he said. Iker was more concerned about another change that gives the ministry authority to impose shared services arrangements on school districts. He called the move “a diversion from underfunding,” after the government demanded $29 million

in administrative savings from districts, many of which say they can’t find any more savings. Fassbender said school districts will have time to develop shared service plans themselves before anything is imposed by Victoria. NDP education critic Rob Fleming said Fassbender and the B.C. Liberals have a “centralizing impulse” toward school districts, shifting authority to the education ministry that doesn’t have the capacity to make all those decisions. The government forced all school districts into a new administration computer system that didn’t work, costing $120 million, so it doesn’t have the track record to lecture school districts on efficiency, Fleming said. editor@saanichnews.com

Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell speaks to reporters on Monday following the release of a report from the Office of the information and Privacy Commissioner on the use of employee monitoring software at the District of Saanich.

Council to review privacy report at next meeting Continued from Page A1

“Spector 360’s utility ... can only provide District IT staff with the ability to review those actions after a security breach has already taken place,” Denham said. The spyware actually made Saanich’s IT security less secure “by concentrating the personal information of key employees and officers in one location, creating a ‘honeypot’ for external attackers,” Denham added. Staff also previously asserted that the installation of Spector 360 “was in response to the conclusions of a May 2014 independent, external audit of the District of Saanich computer system.” But Denham reviewed the IT audit report and said it does not make any specific recommendation about the purchase and installation of employee-monitoring software. “The audit’s author, also interviewed by my Office, confirmed that he did not make any such recommendation nor did he intend to make any recommendation that could be interpreted to recommend the installation of monitoring software such as

Spector 360,” Denham said. The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner is making five recommendations in its report including disabling Spector 360 (acting CAO Andy Laidlaw says the District took this step voluntarily in January); destroying all personal information collected by Spector 360; an update to District privacy policies; and the creation of administrator logs to track when anyone accesses IT systems that store personal information. Denham is also recommending the District of Saanich implement a comprehensive privacy management program, complete an audit of the District’s compliance with the privacy act and appoint a privacy officer. Atwell said council will discuss the privacy commissioner’s report on April 13, when they’ll discuss how to proceed with Denham’s recommendations. “We have to digest the report and find out what the implications of it are,” Atwell said. “I feel vindicated. ... My focus is going to be on the recommendations and how Saanich gets up to speed in our laws.” editor@saanichnews.com

Guest column: Feeling disillusioned after a day observing in the B.C. legislature March 26 marked Purple Day, the day we take time to throw on a purple shirt and to show some support for people with epilepsy. To mark the occasion this year, the Victoria Epilepsy Society arranged a photograph with Health Minister Terry Lake, and received an invitation to sit in the gallery to watch the proceedings of the House. During the opening statements, Minister Lake was nice enough to recognize Headway and the visitors from the society by name – including my seizure response dog Kash, who, due to eating too many milkbones, he said, will be retiring in October. A health bill regarding epilepsy was later introduced, as well as a bill addressing animal cruelty – you may like animals more than humans, but I believe one or both of these bills would generate concern or compassion for most people. After Even though I our quick recognition didn’t go in with much from the floor faith in our political I felt like the government had representatives, I left in put on a lovely tears. show. I had hoped we would get to speak to the minister, at least for a few minutes to ask some questions, but of course this was all a grand gesture rather than an opportunity to actually put anything new into motion. So I sat quietly and I watched the House at work. And even though I didn’t go in with much faith in our political representatives, I left in tears. It felt like I was watching petulant teenagers suffer through math class. I was extremely disappointed to see about half wearing purple, or the bracelets Headway sent over ? the Speaker wasn’t even setting an example in her nice red blouse. The iPads and iPhones outnumbered the people listening, by far. Of course that shouldn’t have surprised me in this era, but I never expected the overwhelming lack of attention in the proceedings from our MLAs. What truly

caught me off guard was the blatant chatting and note-passing that took place. As bills were introduced the ministers were passing notes like I used to pass in sixth grade. The longer the House sat, the more inattentive they became. My blood was boiling as I left, before the speaker even made a motion to bring the health bill back for a second reading (I’m sure it was passed, since the chorus of “aye” rung loudly at the Speaker’s cue, or was completely ignored by those less interested in the pomp and circumstance of participating). So what was the point of all this? To make me feel like they care? For the sake of propriety, I won’t name names, but is it necessary for Lower Mainland representatives to be text messaging? Or for Northern BC MLAs to be typing emails or scrolling through BC Public Service website on an iPad? I’ll admit that I’m biased. Epilepsy is a life-threatening disability that affects 65 million

people every single day, including myself. The moment I get out of bed, I’m worried about falling and injuring myself. An MLA is supposed to be “concerned about matters that effect their constituents.” Sixty-five million people isn’t a small number. I’m certain that each MLA has constituents that this bill will effect. I don’t have the money to be an influential donor and get someone to pay attention using my wallet. I must be old-fashioned since I believe that each citizen in this province has the right to an MLA that sits quietly and pays attention for the months that the House is in session. I don’t expect much from my government: I lost faith a long time ago. But I do expect politicians to at least try to make a difference. And today they didn’t even give me the respect to pretend to care. Tessa Hawkins Saanich

Atwell alone got it right on spyware Saanich Mayor Richard Atwell was walking with a bit of swagger when he addressed media on Monday in the wake of a damning report from B.C.’s privacy commissioner on Saanich’s use of employee monitoring software. Atwell raised concerns about the Spector 360 spyware program in January, but thanks in large part to its bundling with a series of other revelations – lying about an extramarital affair, possible police harassment, leaked information about a 911 call – our Mayor was framed in national media as paranoid, a blunder-prone rookie politician. It’s amazing how a few months can change perceptions so drastically. B.C.’s Information and Privacy Commisioner Elizabeth Denham left no wiggle room when she lambasted District officials for showing “a deep lack of understanding” about the province’s privacy laws. Denham told the News she was dismayed by an absence of oversight by Saanich bureaucrats to ensure that privacy rights were being appropriately respected with new security measures. Spector 360, rather than increasing Saanich’s IT security, actually made it less secure by creating a “honeypot” of passwords and other information for external attackers, Denham said. Some Saanich councillors come out of this mess looking rather sheepish in the wake of Denham’s report. They stood confidently by their staff, refusing to consider that Atwell might actually know what he’s talking about as their mayor and a former software engineer. Those naysayers will be thinking deeply about their next public steps, but what’s needed now is a willingness to collectively deal with the modernization of the District’s privacy laws. To borrow a phrase from Denham: welcome to the 21st century. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@saanichnews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

which is now accepted as being contrary to British and Canadian law. It was the blunt-spoken Pierre who first acknowledged this hasn’t worked. Some of the 50 First Nations stuck at the treaty table have borrowed too much to go on, she said last year, calling for an “exit strategy” that forgives debt. I asked Clark if her plan to settle land claims faster was anything like the 2009 attempt by Gordon Campbell’s deputy minister Jessica McDonald to negotiate a province-wide deal declaring aboriginal title. Clark sidestepped the question, saying only that the 150 B.C. First Nations not at the treaty table need a say and a solution too. (McDonald now faces a similar legal gridlock as the Clark-appointed CEO of BC Hydro, trying to build the Site C dam.) Pierre, a veteran administrator from the Ktunaxa Tribal Council in the Kootenays, made a prophetic statement when her term as chief commissioner was extended three years ago. She said if Ottawa isn’t prepared to give federal negotiators a realistic mandate on compensation and sharing of salmon rights, they should “shut ’er down.” Her advice may have been heard after all.

LETTERS LETTERS The cartoon that appeared on your editorial page on March 25 exposed the forlorn deficit of knowledge that exists amongst much of the media with reference to Islam and Arabic ways of life. It proves that even amongst the most self-assured mainstream western media there has been an appalling lack of effort to study that religion and culture that has captivated thousands of headlines since 9/11. Of course, we understand that the purpose of the cartoon was to bludgeon our prime minister as often as possible, but surely there has to be at least some basis for the insinuation that Harper should hide under a niqab. “Hide” being the key word here, since it would appear that the cartoonist approves of women hiding under the garment. As to the fine, cultural mosaic attributes of the niqab, please seek out the writings of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, or Canadian Raheel Reza who helped put together the documentary “The Honor Diaries”. Just a little effort in the study of Islam and the many cultures and sub-cultures of Arabia and North Africa will quickly knock down the stereotypes upon which this cartoon rests. Dennis R. Miller Saanich

Seniors discounts favour the wealthy A report by Ontario economist Harry Kitchen on seniors discounts argues that they benefit wealthy retirees who don’t need help. I wholeheartedly agree. Yes, there are many poor seniors living on a fixed income but the majority are far better off than the rest of us. If a private business wants to give them a discount, that’s fine with me. They can have a “half price red-head day” for all I care. It’s the government run companies like the ferries and the buses which are already losing money that really irks me. Why should we the taxpayer subsidize some rich person just because of their age? Subsidize the truly poor people regardless of their age. That makes sense to me. I shouldn’t be writing this as becoming a senior is not too far off for me and no doubt the powers that be will figure this out by the time I get there but fair is fair. Besides I’ll already be in the first group of people to have to wait until 67 years old to get my pension. Matt Taylor Saanich

Bill C-51 a disgrace to Canadian rights C-51 is a disgrace. According to the federal government, Bill C-51 is an act which should “encourage and facilitate information sharing between Government of Canada institutions in order to protect Canada against activities that undermine the security of Canada.” It seems very obvious at this point that that neat and vague phrase, although potentially true, does not encompass the true character of the bill. C-51 is a disgrace because the Conservatives have tried to take advantage of what they thought would be a vulnerable population after the Parliament Hill shootings. They were wrong, the bill goes too far and Canadians know it. It is unrealistic to think that the bill will pass given the proposed changes to charter rights and

private information sharing. Furthermore, the bill is devious in targeting peaceful protestors. C-51 gives the RCMP power to criminally charge persons involved in disrupting infrastructure. This involves, for example, First Nations groups peacefully protesting a pipeline, people who already make up a disproportionate amount of prisoners in the system. Harper sure does not understand British Columbia. All of the changes to the criminal justice system and firmly held Canadian beliefs in C-51 are unacceptable. This time Harper has gone too far. Enjoy your time in office Conservative government, the next federal election cannot come soon enough. Patrick Teague Central Saanich

Don’t knock $15 minimum wage, Fletcher Tom Fletcher, in his otherwise excellent assessment on the BC government’s callous handling of the poverty-stricken in this province, opines in part, saying “...anyone who still thinks jacking the minimum wage up to $15 an hour is a magic solution that won’t cost some entry-level jobs is clinging to a socialist dream world.” The minimum wage in Australia is $16.87/hour. Last time I noticed, Australia was far from being a “socialist dream world”. Richard Weatherill Saanich

Purple martin returning which see 30 nesting pair of martins return each year. Others went up at Royal Roads University (30 boxes total, 20 returning pairs), Goldstream Park got a few (now up to 15) and seven were installed at Pedder Inlet near Pearson College, whose boxes saw occupancy in the first year after being placed in 2013. The purple martin’s instinctual nesting habitat is in the holes woodpeckers make in old burned out trees and other dead or dying wood. These days, Lee says, those areas are forested rather than left to nature, creating a lack of area for the birds to nest upon their annual return from South America. The growth of the population also has a lot to do with luck – at least the meteorological kind. Lee says there needs to be the right kind of weather at the right time to create the natural circumstances that support increased numbers. “From 2002 to 2006 we had really good summers for bugs,” she says. Martins survive off large bugs like moths, beetles and dragonflies, as opposed to smaller ones like mosquitoes, so if those types of insects aren’t plentiful when the martins are trying to feed their young, progress is lost in the resurgence efforts. If it’s too wet at the wrong times or for too long, not enough of the birds’ preferred diet is produced for the ones that are trying to

Black Press

In 1985, there were five breeding pairs of western purple martins left in the wild. They were nesting in the portholes of an old decommissioned ship at the Department of National Defence dock in Colwood. But then people with the Victoria Natural History Society and Western Purple Martin Foundation stepped in and started putting up nesting boxes to compensate for the loss of their natural habitat. Now, there are approximately 1,000 mating pairs that return to the area each spring from their winter migration to South America. “There was a slow and steady increase over the first few years (of the nesting box program),” says foundation director Charlene Lee. By about 2002, she adds, there were approximately 200 pairs. It was evidence the program was working and the foundation received funding to expand the program. “We weren’t sure, being a swallow, that they would take to the boxes,” Lee says, as many swallows are very territorial about their nesting areas. Once the birds did start using them, it became clear that expansion of the program could be the help needed to ensure the birds’ continued survival. More boxes were put up at the DND docks, for a total of about 40,

Saturday’s Earth Hour initiative, overseen in this province by B.C. Hydro as a way to reduce electricity use, saw its lowest residential and commercial takeup since the program began. B.C.’s reduction of 15 megawatt hours of power between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. was by far the lowest since 2008, the first year B.C. Hydro joined the international event begun by the World Wildlife Fund.

Breaking news around the clock

saanichnews.com Capital Regional District Arts Development Deadlines Friday, May 1st Project Grants - provide project funding for arts organizations.

Renowned artist Bill Zuk is this year’s Ambassador of the Arts for the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts. Rick Stiebel/Black Press

Bill Zuk still involved in arts Rick Stiebel Black Press

Although his work has taken him from B.C. to the prairies and the far reaches of the Arctic, the coast of Vancouver Island maintains a mystical connection for renowned artist Bill Zuk. Currently serving as a professor emeritus in art education at the University of Victoria, Zuk has been named this year’s Ambassador of the Arts for the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts. An accomplished digital artist, printmaker and sculptor, Zuk was born in Trail, B.C. and grew up on the Prairies before earning a master’s degree in art from the University of Alberta in 1970. His passion to learn about the arts and culture of indigenous people of Canada led him to teach the Inuit in the Arctic, as well as teaching in a coastal Tsimshian village in the Pacific Northwest. Those experiences had a profound

influence on Zuk in many different ways, he acknowledged last week at an event announcing his MISSA appointment at Coast Collective Gallery. “You get a sense of the close, unique connection the arts have with the coast,” he said. “There’s a cultural richness of people on this coast dating back thousands of years that you won’t find anywhere else.” Of the 59 indigenous languages in Canada, more than half are in B.C., he noted. As for being selected as the summer school’s

Ambassador for the Arts, he considers it an honour. “It’s wonderful when the community acknowledges some of the things you have done,” said Zuk, who has a more than 20-year connection with the West Shore Arts Council and will be a jury member for Fairies, Fantasies and Folk Tales, an upcoming student show at Coast Collective. “I’ve always had an interest in the arts scene on the West Shore, particularly with students and teachers because of the

quality of the work and the people involved. Meeting the artists is always a treat.” Cindy Moyer, executive director of MISSA, said it was an honour to have Zuk as MISSA’s ambassador. “He symbolizes the lifelong connection between artists and teachers in the Sooke School District,” she said. “Artists teaching teachers who teach students who become artists embodies the lifelong cycle of the arts.” For more on the summer arts school, visit missa.ca. editor@saanichnews.com

carriers! CARRIER OF THE MONTH

TOM Tom (12 years) has been a carrier since he was 6 years old..... which is half of his life! He has had several different routes during this time, as well as ‘subbing’ for other carriers while they are away. Tom has played soccer for many years and is a Defender on the U13 Gold team for Prospect Lake Soccer Club. In his spare time, he likes to play video games and enjoys being with his friends. When asked what he likes most about delivering the Saanich News, Tom says, “For one, I earn money, which is good because I can buy things and go to the movies. Secondly, I get exercise so I stay fit; that’s what I like best about delivering papers.” Congratulations Tom on being “Carrier of the Month” and for always delivering your papers with a smile.

Saanichton resident Gavin England, centre, recieves a Silver Medal for Bravery from MLA for Burnaby North, Richard Lee, left, and Lieut. Gov. Judith Guichon last Saturday in Vancouver. Submitted photo

Local teen honoured for saving granddad’s life Travis Paterson News staff

Gavin England of Saanichton was one of 26 recipients of bravery awards at the Lifesaving Society’s 103rd Annual Honour and Rescue Award Ceremony on March 28 in Vancouver. Gavin, 13, is in Grade 8 at Bayside middle school. Last year his efforts saved his and his grandfather’s life after they were forced to abandon their boat in the Saanich Inlet. “Gavin’s dad and I are proud of him, of course, especially in his ability to improvise, persevere and think clearly under those stressful conditions,” said Gavin’s mom Gillian. “We’ve gone boating since then. Hopefully Gavin will not experience anything as extreme as this again, but at least he has shown that when the chips are down he is able to take care of himself.” Gavin was on the water in Finlayson Arm in June of 2014 with his grandfather Vern, in an 18-foot boat Vern had restored. The two were prawning 300 metres off shore near Goldstream Park when the boat took on more water than it’s already-stressed bilge pump could handle, and the bilge stopped functioning.

FINAL

“The next thing you know, I looked back and the boat was half full of water,” Vern said. As he watched the water level rise, Vern knew the situation was going to rapidly get worse. “Grandpa, we’ve got to get out of the boat,” Gavin said. Wearing lifejackets, they entered the water and were able to remain afloat. Vern didn’t have the strength to swim and Gavin towed him while assuring him not to panic. “I kept telling him that we would be fine and we were almost there,” Gavin said. They lost their shoes during the swim but reached shore, though they found themselves in a remote area with no help in sight. After navigating the rocky shoreline, Gavin walked some distance to find a house while Vern warmed up and regained his strength on the beach. They had seen a cabin earlier from the water so Gavin headed in that direction. After nearly two hours, he came upon an empty house and an old truck with keys in it. After several unsuccessful attempts, Gavin was able to start the truck. He had never driven a stick shift but

had ridden a dirt bike, so knew about clutches and shifting gears. He drove the truck up the steep driveway to find help. He made it to the Malahat where he waved down a motorist to get help. “I knew I was all right, but I was more concerned about Grandpa than myself,” Gavin said. Vern eventually made it to the abandoned house as Gavin was coming back down the hill with RCMP officers who had been called by observers. “I think (Gavin’s) a hero, I really do. He had such tenacity to just get up and find help. I’m so proud of that little guy, he’s an incredible boy,” Vern said. “I still go boating,” Gavin said. “I wasn’t really responsible for preparing the boat, but my dad is pretty particular about boating safety and having our own boat properly equipped. If something unexpected happens try not to panic, and wear your lifejacket at all times.” Each year the prestigious Honour & Rescue Award ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate the heroism and bravery of aquatic rescuers in B.C. Lifesaving Society is a not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to reduce waterrelated death and injury. reporter@saanichnews.com

Royals take lead into Prince George Brandon Magee leads Victoria Royals to 2-0 lead in WHL playoffs vs. Prince George Cougars

Greg Chase scored a highlight reel goal to give Victoria the 4-2 lead after two periods. Taylor Crunk tallied an empty net goal for the Royals in the final frame. The Cougars’ Tate Olson and Chase Witala both scored in the opening period and Kody McDonald added a goal in the third period.   Victoria goaltender Coleman Vollrath turned aside 28 of the 31 shots he faced for his first career post-season win.

Don Denton Black Press

The Victoria Royals are in Prince George tonight for Game 3 of their first round playoff series against the Cougars. Brandon Magee was named the WHL player of the week for leading the Royals to a 2-0 series lead over the Cougars in the Western Hockey League Western conference quarterfinals, with three goals on Friday and two more on Saturday. Royals fans will have fingers crossed that Brandon McGee will continue his torrid playoff scoring pace. The veteran player scored five goals in the first two matches. Friday saw McGee get his first playoff hat trick and on Saturday the second of his goals was the game winner. The Royals defeated the Cougars 5-4 on Saturday to take the 2-0 series lead in the playoffs. The Cougars tied the game twice in the third period, but Magee countered on both occasions. Jack Walker, Tyler Soy and Greg Chase notched the other markers for Victoria. Prince George’s goals were potted by Tate Olson (2), Zach Pochiro and Chase Witala. Victoria goaltender Coleman Vollrath stopped 30 of the 34 shots he faced, while Prince George netminder Ty Edmonds

Vikes grand four win regatta

The Vikes varsity eights raced through a tight field on Sunday to finish fifth in 6:47.52. “We had an excellent [Crew Classic] race but the girls felt they could have gone faster,” said Rick Crawley, Vikes women’s rowing head coach.” At Elk Lake, the women’s coxed four consisting of Jessica Bateman-Wallace, Kirsten McKay, Maxine Chapman and Emma Durham finished first in a time of 3.52.24, outperforming their teammates Courtney Smith, Hanna Jenks, Emily Peacock and Giorgia Van Brunschot who finished second in 4:00.04. The Vikes women’s and men’s crews next compete in the annual Brown Cup, hosted by UBC on Apr. 4. editor@saanichnews.com

Fusion ready for provincials Jackson Cup finalists derailed by former stars Travis Paterson News staff

Having fallen short in the Jackson Cup Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 1 championship game on Sunday, the Saanich Fusion are happily entering the provincial senior men’s A Cup soccer championships as underdogs. Cowichan FC squeaked out a 4-3 win to edge the Fusion in the centennial Jackson Cup game at Royal Athletic Park. With 1,038 fans, it was a record turnout for modern-day senior men’s soccer on the Island, part of a weekend of VISL and Lower Island Women’s Soccer Association trophy matches. The Fusion entered the weekend headliner at Royal Athletic Park as the defending 2014 Island champs but were by no means the favourite, having rejigged the roster with just seven returning players from the 2014 winning team. Among those departed players are VISL offensive threats Cooper Barry and Pat Nelson, who joined perennial powerhouse Cowichan FC. Barry scored in the final, and

Nelson set up the winner, as the duo enjoyed backto-back Jackson Cup victories. “It wasn’t on a bad note, they left on good terms,” said Fusion cocoach Steph Steiner. “They just wanted to try something different, they had friends there and we held no ill will towards them.” Returning to the Fusion from last year were Cardin Davis, who scored the club’s first goal on Sunday, with Connor McManaman, Gord Elliot, Josh Menzies, Brian Taylor, Angus Hayman and captain Leo Falzon, last year’s VISL Div. 1 rookie of the year. “Because of the retooling and season we had, I am just as proud of our club this year, even more-so, perhaps, than when we won the (VISL) and the Jackson Cup championship last year,” Steiner said. Fusion centre back Chris Peereboom was named the Jackson Cup MVP despite being on the loser’s side as he headed in two of his team’s goals. “Peereboom is one of our centre pieces, he really just has amazing will and drive, and fantastic passion for our club,” Steiner said.

The season tested the depth of Saanich Fusion’s program, as the Div. 1 team promoted six of it’s players from Div. 2, including Peerebrom, as 13 of its 20 players came through the Fusion’s youth system. “You don’t get that very often and we’re very proud,” Steiner said. It didn’t look good during training back in August, Steiner added, but by September it was a different story. The Fusion won its first three games handily and then drew its next two versus Gorge and Bays Utd. By season’s end the Fusion were 10-5-3 with 33 points, third overall behind Cowichan (12-3-3) and Vic West (11-5-2). The A Cup provincial draw was Monday night and starts April 18-19 (will be posted at VISL.org). Going into last year’s provincials as the Island champs drew a lot of attention and the Fusion were knocked out in the first round by the perennial powerhouse Coquitlam Metro Ford Wolves. This year, Steiner’s hoping they can surprise some teams.

“I am just as proud of our club this year, even more-so, perhaps, than when we won the (VISL) and the Jackson Cup championship last year.” - Steph Steiner

“We’re going into provincials thinking this is a bonus round for us,” Steiner said. “We want to continue growing as a new group, moving forward together and learning from every game we play, and we’re hopeful to win a few rounds, our players work hard and believe in each other.” The Island has five berths (up from four) in the 2015 senior men’s A Cup provincials, with Cowichan FC, Vic West, Bays Utd., and Nanaimo joining Saanich. Prospect Lake enters the A Cup women’s provincials with the Vic Athletics. Gorge FC won the Over-35 Tony Grover men’s championship on Sunday in a penalty shootout over the Saanich Fusion (over-35). Prospect Lake won the LIWSA premier leauge Terry Price Cup over Vic Athletics and Gorge FC won this year’s Doug Day Cup 1-0 in overtime versus Juan De Fuca. reporter@saanichnews.com

Village visionaries seek updated plan Travis Paterson News staff

Members of the Cadboro Bay Residents Association and Cadboro Bay Village Business Improvement Association recently met at Goward House to share ideas about the future of Caddy Bay village.

The meeting was well attended and opinions flew fast and frequent, said CBRA president Eric Dahli. The evening was moderated by Monday Magazine founder Gene Miller of New Landmarks. “Topics that came up were safe pedestrian movement around the village, village beautification, and the possible expansion of the village,” said Dahli, currently in his second

term as president seven years after his first one. Expansion is a tricky one for the tight knit community which boasts its share of NIMBYs, he said. “If there’s expansion then in what direction, up the hill? down the hill?,” Dahli asked. “The consensus seems to think we’re better served to go up the hill. But there’s still a lot of questions.” Among those questions is the ‘F word,’ which reared its head at the meeting, though ‘franchises’ have already invaded the village and the strong patronage of Starbucks, chief among them, is irrefutable. “There was a lot of great ideas, a lot of great minds, and we took down that information with a goal to present it at the CBRA annual general meeting on May 13 at the Cadboro Bay United Church,” Dahli said. “What we’d really like to do is update Saanich’s local area plan for Cadboro Bay by including these ideas. Saanich is on notice we want it renewed. Fifteen years ago if someone told me there’d be a smoothie bar, Thai and sushi restaurants, I would have said, ‘Where’s the overdone roast beef?” reporter@saanichnews.com
