Celebrate Canada Mark Canada’s 148th birthday at today’s big Sidney Days events

Sidney will be conducting a parking study for the downtown core of the town and will explore its options.
Parking study sought Sidney to seek proposals to study local spaces Steven Heywood News staff
As pressure over parking starts to heat up this summer, the Town of Sidney is looking to spend $15,000 on a study of its space supply. Mayor Steve Price says the town council approved plans late last month to have the municipality find a contractor to study parking in the downtown core through a request for proposals process. The last parking study done in Sidney was in 2007 and indicated parking pressure at that time was sitting at 75 per cent occupancy. That report was updated in
2011 and focussed mainly on implementing more detailed considerations out of the 2007 study. Price said a new study would help determine current occupancy rates, noting that 85 per cent is generally considered at capacity, or full. The Town of Sidney is fielding public feedback on parking in the wake of a proposed commercial and residential project that is looking to buy the Town-owned public parking lot on 3rd Street. Sidney is also seeking grant money to plan for a large parking area south of the Mary Winspear Centre. Please see: Study could establish, page 2
EACH BUMP HAS ITS OWN STORY
oday marks the nation’s 148th birthday and Sidney goes all out to celebrate. The 31st Sidney Days events take place throughout the day and include pancake breakfast, Canada Day parade down Beacon Avenue, a family fun fair in Iroquois Park, road hockey games, a dog lookalike contest and the popular Build-a-Boat Race. Events get under way at 8 a.m. today — the parade starts at 11:30 a.m. — with the family events and boat race running to 4:30 p.m. and a little bit beyond. For all of the event details, visit peninsulacelebrations.ca.
Wave the flag in celebration of Canada today. The Town of Sidney’s fireworks are always held the night before July 1.

Study could establish new parking policies Continued from page 1
Both projects have raised the profile of parking issues in the community. The study itself would seek to address development impacts on parking in the downtown and the practice of allowing less parking for new projects. It would also assess current parking occupancy, determine the
ideal number of space in the proposed lot at the Mary Winspear Centre and look into whether parking structures are required in the east end of downtown — where it might be located and how much it would cost. Price said the study would also help determine whether the Town needs to develop a new parking structure or revamp its current parking policies.
Bed Races on Beacon: Team Profile
Asked if paid parking is on their radar, Price said council and the community has been reluctant to go in that direction. “That would be the absolute last resort for council,” he said. “Hopefully we never have to (consider that).” Staff estimate a new study will cost $15,000 and will use funds out of the Town’s engineering services budget.

Border patrol seizes guns, booze and weed SIDNEY — The “nervous behaviour” of a fishing boat captain tipped off Canadian Border Services Agency officers that a vessel arriving at Bedwell Harbour at Pender Island was carrying more than the catch of the day. The Marine Enforcement Team was questioning the master in command of a vessel arriving on June 2, from Seattle, the CBSA said in a statement released June 29. The man allegedly acted nervous when asked about firearms, leading officers to take a closer look at the boat. They found 58 grams of marijuana, two prohibited handguns and 19 undeclared bottles of alcohol. The contraband was located under floor boards in the vessel’s engine
room, underneath a seating area and in drawers in the staterooms, the CBSA said. “This case was an excellent example of the work CBSA’s Marine Enforcement Team undertakes to safeguard the safety and security of Canadians,” stated James McEachern, acting superintendent of the CBSA Marine Enforcement Team. The fishing boat captain was arrested and charged under the Customs Act for smuggling narcotics and alcohol, as well as under the Criminal Code for possessing a firearm without a license. He will appear in Victoria Provincial Court on July 22. The vessel was seized and then released on payment of a penalty of $2,596.76. — News staff

National award for local brewer ‘remarkable’, says MLA Award-winning brew from Category 12 has sold out, but a new batch is in the works
Craft beer prices
Steven Heywood News staff
Category 12’s Disruption IPA has sold out but the brew master says another batch is due out in a couple weeks. The Central Saanich craft brewery won a medal at the Canadian Brewing Awards last month for its Disruption IPA — awarded top marks as the best American Style Black Ale in Canada. That award has made people sit up and take notice of Category 12, which has only been running for the past six months. Saanich North and the Islands MLA Gary Holman presented owner Michael Kuzyk with a certificate recognizing the achievement on June 25. “The award speaks highly of the skill, ingenuity of the brewery,” Holman said. “It’s a remarkable accomplishment.” Kuzyk was appreciative of Holman’s words, noting

Saanich North and the Islands MLA Gary Holman, left, presents a congratulatory certificate to Category 12 Brewing owner Michael Kuzyk. the award itself has helped increase the profile of Category 12 — and people’s interest in the beer saw the limited edition brew sell out. “But we’ve brewed another batch of the Disruption IPA,” Kuzyk said. “So many people want to try it now. We had meant it to be a seasonal ale but our next batch will be
out in a couple weeks and shipped out for summer.” Since opening, Kuzyk said Category 12 has expanded, hiring an assistant brew master and some part-time staff. They started out with three people at their brewery on Keating X Road. As well, Kuzyk said they have ordered another steel fer-
mentation vessel from Specific Mechanical Systems, just down the road in the Keating industrial area. “Eighty per cent of our equipment is locally-made,” Kuzyk said. “We try to use as many local people as possible.” He added the national award has been great for
MLA Gary Holman noted that provincial policy is having a significant impact on the pricing of B.C’s craft beer. “It’s a fast-growing sector of the economy,” he said, “and recent changes have resulted in higher prices. It’s a real concern.” In April, the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch set standard wholesale prices and by June 1, many brands of craft beer saw shelf prices jump between about five per cent to as much as eight per cent. Holman said the changes “are concerning” especially for new businesses, like Central Saanich’s Category 12 Brewing. For his part, Category 12 owner Michael Kuzyk said he works with the B.C. Brewers Guild, the organization that lobbies on behalf of craft beer makers. “It sounds like we are being heard,” he said.

Sidney woman wants scooters to slow down Steven Heywood News staff
Helen Ewing is hoping something can be done about dangerous scooter drivers, after she was struck by one two weeks ago. Ewing, a Sidney resident, says she was walking along 7th Street recently when she was struck from behind by a scooter. “You just can’t hear those things,” she said. Ewing, who is elderly, was treated by paramedics for scrapes and bruises but she said she’s still nursing a swollen leg. She added she has been in contact with the driver who hit her but isn’t sure whether she’ll be seeking legal action. Ewing told the PNR she would like more regulation of scooter drivers and even mandatory lessons on how to operate them on sidewalks — and even about showing a little common courtesy.

To park or not to park
he Town of Sidney is taking its best course of action when it comes to tackling a growing debate over parking in the downtown core. Out of a recent meeting, the Town has embarked on a search for a company to study, update, and possibly revise, a seven-yearold parking study. Done in 2007, and updated in 2011, the study is in need of revision in the wake of large construction projects that will certainly change the landscape of parking in the community. The two projects with the most potential impact are: the Town’s own proposed large parking lot at the south end of No one should the Mary Winspear and; a expect to get their Centre, proposed affordable way completely housing condo building on 3rd Street that would be built over the Town’s existing 50-stall lot next to the fire hall. There has also been, to a lesser extent, the loss of potential off-street parking spaces with other developments as they ask for a changing of the rules to allow them to build fewer spaces. Throw on top of the mix a public that seems to want to be able to park as close as possible to the shops and attractions in downtown Sidney. It’s only logical that Town council would seek to create a new plan that reflects these realities and, hopefully, there will be opportunities for interested people to give their ideas on parking in the downtown. No one should expect to get their way completely however. Sidney must balance a variety of demands — from more affordable housing and increased economic activity, to the needs of people who like to park and don’t like to walk, or who simply cannot walk long distances. Sidney is a diverse community and will have to make its own way when it comes to parking. We would like to see a parking plan that balances the needs from a variety of sectors and gives the downtown the accessibility it needs, with the amenities required to make it vibrant into the future.

Former attorney general Wally Oppal used to warn about Americanstyle influence by wealthy interest groups targeting scheduled elections. Their strategy was not so much to keep corporate money out of B.C. politics as to keep it flowing through the B.C. Liberal Party. This spring the B.C. Liberal majority passed Bill 20, the Election Amendment Act. Not only did this recognize the freedom of outsiders to weigh in on elections, it also did away with pre-campaign restrictions on registered political parties and candidates. NDP MLA Leonard Krog warned that this sets the stage for “some mad Wild West show,” with politicians so desperate to raise money they start looking for the B.C. equivalent of renting out the Lincoln bedroom in the White House. The big difference between the pre-campaign ads for this fall’s federal election and the next provincial vote in 2017 is that corporate and union donations to parties and candidates have been eliminated at the federal level. That means more money available for third-party campaigns, but it seems to be fairly well distributed between the two sides, the Conservatives and everybody else. Here in the Wild West, nothing’s going to change as long as the B.C. Liberals are in the saddle. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. email@example.com

Start the car, it’s time for summer fun and tomatoes T his morning I had a cosmopolitan breakfast: fresh Canadian raspberries on Greek yogurt and it was delicious. This is a lovely time of year, there are so many delectable fruits and vegetables available: newly picked peas, small tasty carrots (thinnings, really to allow the rest room-tofatten-up), baby beets, new potatoes, lettuces and green onions for a salad. You’ll have to buy the tomatoes and cucumbers for a while yet — which makes me jealous. That big beautiful tomato plant I bought has been blooming well, but although I’ve been trying to pollinate it with my soft
make-up brush, not a single infant tomato has shown up. It may need a mate, a different variety of tomato, to pollinate it, in order to produce fruit. Maybe I can borrow a truss of bloom from a friend, whose plant is already full of baby tomatoes to do the necessary cross- pollination. I hate it when something like this happens. I’m supposd to know things like this but sometimes I don’t. I’ve never grown a single tomato plant before, usually having at least six on the go. Another lesson. And I’ve grown tomatoes for more years than I want to admit, but I guess the old saying, “live and learn” applies here,
Over the Garden Fence even now. Across the street from my condominium building is a long structure containing four town houses and one of them is obviously occupied by one or more keen gardeners. Its garden at one end of the building, between the building and the sidewalk, is
delightful, with big pots of flowers on either side of the stairs and several other pots filled with flowers in the small garden. It also has what I originally thought was a bird bath but its surface is now full of trailing blooms. There is also a red fire hydrant, but it’s hardly noticeable amongst all the lovely plants. I plan to go over and thank them for making my outlook so attractive. A couple of interestings things occur on this day. We are celebrating Canada’s birthday today. Another interesting thing is that we have passed the solstice and it is now called “summer.” Get out the bathing suits, the sunglasses
and the bug spray — and don’t forget the beach umbrella and the cold beer.
As we celebrate Canada Day, I wish that we could laud our many successes at all levels of society. Too many of our front page news stories revere failure: failure of the various levels of government in not meeting the needs of the disadvantaged and blame for Canada’s historical handling of ethnic and racially related issues in the building of our country among the many. Collective guilt is riddling our education system and revisionist history is the order of the day. I know, let’s find new material to denigrate our country. Let’s stop shooting ourselves in the foot ... it encourages anarchy. Ernest Wahl North Saanich

ity of Sidney residents given that most live north of Beacon and now fire trucks will have to cross this busy street for the majority of calls. The proposed new facility has only projected costs of some $5 to $8 million. The cost could escalate beyond what really needs to be spent. What benefit do residents receive for borrowing over $5 million? The existing facility is only 30 years young. If a sprinkler system is mandatory, this would be
a retrofit of a few hundred thousand, not millions for the latest and greatest building found in larger cities that have a paid fire staff and much larger tax base. Sure it will be seismically superior, however, I am not aware of any fire hall that has fallen over as long as this town has existed, and the likelihood is incredibly remote. Perhaps if we had an amalgamated fire department with Central Saanich and North Saanich and a paid skeleton crew, one could justify such a new building. Obviously we all want the best in all our civic buildings, however, without material benefit to the average citizen, this appears to be essentially a politically motivated programme, naturally supported by the fire department, for an overly eager and premature proposal to construct a facility with far more cost than value.

Arts council is bursting at the seams Steven Heywood News staff
Arts are bursting at the seams on the Saanich Peninsula and one organization is feeling that more than most. Based in Sidney’s Tulista Park, the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula (CACSP) is home to all kinds of arts and cultural activities and these days, are finding that they just can’t accommodate it all. That’s why a group of their board members have formed a committee to look into how they might be able to grow over the next five years. Richard Julien, CACSP president, says the committee of five people has started doing its due diligence on potential expansion options, based on the organization’s vision, mandate and other ideas. “We are brainstorming all ideas, including on the future of our building, seeking out new space or something else,” Julien said. Late last month, Julien went before the council of the Town of Sidney, letting them know that CACSP would be asking them soon about the potential to expand or even move to another municipallyowned space. CACSP’s current location in Tulista Park — a collection of gallery space, working areas, and office and storage — is leased from
the Town for $1 a year. Julien said. The municipality looks after the maintenance of the outside, and CACSP takes care of the interior. Julien also pointed out that the Town also supports CACSP in its annual budget. CACSP itself, he said, operates on an annual budget of around $200,000, has one employee and relies on dedicated members and volunteers to put on events like the Sidney Fine Art Show or the ArtSea Fest. “That’s why,” he said, “the Town really needs to be a part of this process.” Councillor Barbara Fallot is the liaison to CACSP, he continued, and has been supportive, suggesting that they make sure the council has heard their ideas and needs prior to the summer. “We have requested a meeting again with the council by October.” Julien said the Town has been a great supporter since they acquired their current space back in 2008. Prior to that, they had operated out of people’s homes. He noted they did have some office space at the post office building downtown but ended up going back to members’ homes. He said CACSP “was over the moon” when the Town agreed to lease them the Tulista Park building. Today, however,
Steven Heywood/News staff
Richard Julien, president of the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula says their long term growth plans will require many partners, not the least of which is the Town of Sidney. Julien said the 1,000 square-foot facility is bursting. To be able to meet their mandate of being a hub for the local artistic and cultural community, he said they need to be able to provide space for the arts, as well as music, culture and more. His vision, he said, is to see CACSP at the centre of an arts and culture hub in Sidney. A Victoria Foundation grant this year is helping them get the whole process started. Whether that includes an expansion of their existing space or a move to a new
one, that has yet to be determined. Julien said the non-profit group is also trying to be realistic. They are looking to similar-sized communities with arts and culture centres of their own, for ideas — including ways to gather supporters and funds to help pay for it all. And, Julien said, they are looking at a time line of around five years to make something happen. “We’re looking for many people and groups to co-operate with the creation of a hub of arts and culture. “That’s the whole idea.”

Triathlon success paves way to Austrian event Saanich Peninsula athlete earns invitation after winning the Elk Lake 55-59 age group in June “I’d like to think that I might inspire others. You have to get past that point that everyone gets to, where you just want to quit, and keep going until it becomes a habit ... a lifestyle.”
Tim Collins News contributor
When Lori Morgan began training for her first triathlon back in 1999, she may not have anticipated that the sport would come to define a large part of her life and give her a level of success that would ultimately lead her to world travel — all in the name of competition. On June 14, Morgan crossed the finish line first in her age group (55 to 59 year old females) to win the Elk Lake 70.3 Half-Iron Victoria. And in case there’s any confusion about what is involved in this particular challenge, it means that Morgan completed a 1.9 km swim, a 90 km bike ride, and a 21 km run — and she did it faster than any of her fellow competitors; competitors who had come from across Canada and the U.S.A. to compete in the race. That win has set the stage for her next challenge, this time at Lake Zell in Austria where Morgan will compete in the 70.3 World Championship on Aug. 30. “My husband and I will be travelling there together and we are really excited,” said Morgan. “I’ve gotten an unbelievable level of support, not just from my family but from
– Lori Morgan someone does well. It’s a very supportive group.” Make no mistake about it, as much as triathlon is an individual sport, it does require the support of others to make the training possible. “I’ve put in just under 20 hours of training this week, and that amount will go up as the event in Austria gets closer,”
organization dedicated to providing athletes with high level coaching. “Lifesport was great for me,” said Morgan. “There are tons of people there. I swim with a group of about 40 people ... and there are tons of people who run and bike. “And we all want to be competitive, but we’re all happy when
Lori Morgan is getting ready for the half-ironman 70.3 World Championships in Austria at the end of August. friends and neighbours. It’s been fantastic.” Morgan’s love of an active lifestyle began in high school where the Victoria native participated in every sport she could, from basketball and field hockey to cross-country racing. “After high school I
did the usual things,” she explained. “Aerobic classes were really popular then, so I did that and also continued jogging ... running really ... just to stay in shape.” But it wasn’t until 1995 that Morgan thought to enter her
first marathon. That race stirred her competitive nature to the point where she continued to challenge herself with more events. In 1999, Morgan joined the Commonwealth Triathlon Club, and soon after moved to Lifesport, a Victoria
Morgan said. “I’m really lucky to have my husband Vince and the rest of my family who support me and make that kind of commitment possible. “I’d like to think that I might inspire others,” Morgan continued. “It really is just about commitment. You have to get past that point that everyone gets to, where you just want to quit, and keep going until it becomes a habit ... a lifestyle. “We’re lucky enough to live in a place that makes training like this possible,” she said. “It only makes sense to take advantage of that good fortune.”

Reporter Peninsula News Review January 26th, 1959 ~ March 14th, 2015 A non-denominatial memorial service honoring Tracy will take place July 5th, 2015 at the Church of Truth in James Bay beginning at 2:00pm. A light lunch will be served. She is predeceased by her Father Frank Hanton and survived by her Mother Joyce, brothers Lloyd (Marie) and Craig (Donna) and their families. Tracy was born in Winnipeg MB, with a heart abnormality that the â€œexpertsâ€? at the time predicted would, at best, only give her a few years to live. Apparently someone forgot to tell Tracy that; after heart surgery at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto at age 2, again at age 16 and once more at 21 years of age the writing was on the wall as to who was running the show. Tracy and her partner of 30 years Ken Penzes endured a few more procedures and surgeries in the years that followed, allowing them to grow older together first in Regina, SK then Victoria BC and finally in Sidney BC where Tracy fell in love again, this time with the Town. She loved to shop the stores on Beacon Ave, and savoured the beauty of the Saanich Peninsula, in particular the wildlife and nature. Her camera was always at the ready and she captured much of it, reviewing it time and time again to her delight. Tracys dog Leo (the true Love of her life) said his goodbye to her at age 14 just 10 days prior to her passing. Together forever in heaven, may their walks be everlasting and off leash. In lieu of flowers please donate to the WWF, BCSPCA or your local animal shelter.

Aquarium raises, returns salmon to the Salish Sea SIDNEY — Chinook salmon that grew up in the public eye have been released into the wilds of the Salish Sea. The salmon came to the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre three years ago as small fry. The fish were kept in the eight-foot round, where visitors could track the salmon as they grew up behind glass. On June 24, aquarium staff released more than 120 Chinooks, allowing them to complete their life cycle in coastal waters. “It was important for us to tell the story,” said Alison Barratt, executive director of the centre. She said having the salmon grow up in front of the public provided an incredible educational experience as many people only know salmon from the dinner table. “It’s such a different way to experience an animal. People definitely got to see them grow.” The salmon were donated to the aquarium by the Goldstream Hatchery in 2012. The aquarium’s husbandry team took good care of the salmon, which should increase their chances of survival to spawning age (four to six years old) when they will return to Goldstream River. Salmon also play

Heat wave means more power used, says Hydro SIDNEY — The sustained heat wave provincewide is having an impact on electricity demand. On Saturday evening, June 27, BC Hydro recorded an increase of 15 per cent in the peak hourly load over Saturday last week. On Sunday, there was an increase of 10 per cent over the previous Sunday. BC Hydro expects the higher than normal electricity demand to continue throughout the week. There are ways to save money during the heat wave: • Keep the blinds down: shade your windows and block up to 65 per cent of the heat. • Use a ceiling fan. Ensure the fan is rotating counter-clockwise. • Keep the clothes dryer off: hang your laundry to dry. • Cook outside.
• Take shorter, cooler showers.
