Soil opponents still skeptical after provincial testing results

RIDING PENNY FARTHING TAKES EXPERIENCE

SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

A community open house has yielded more questions than answers for residents about the safety of the drinking water supply in Shawnigan Lake and the activities of the area’s industrial neighbours. Thursday night’s meeting featured representatives from the Ministries of Environment and Energy and Mines who presented the results of provincial sampling related to the South Island Aggregates (otherwise known as Cobble Hill Holdings) site on Stebbings Road. The official word was the testing, conducted on May 13, “found no exceedances of concern for provincial drinking water guidelines and aquatic life guidelines.” “Some of the groundwater results showed elevated levels of some parameters which are known to be naturally elevated on Vancouver Island, such as arsenic. Some soil sampling results showed isolated and infrequent locations marginally exceeding provincial contaminated sites regulations for lead and zinc,” said the MOE’s infor-

mation bulletin. “All surface water results met B.C. water quality guidelines.” The province’s test results differ from those of Dr. Andrew Weaver, climate scientist and Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA. The Green Party member took his own samples in the area and concluded that while he agrees with the ministry that there is no public health risk as of yet, too many questions remain to drop the issue. Weaver believes his below-thesurface tests have more telling results than the province’s top layer testing. “If you want to know whether compliance has occurred, you want to know what’s below the surface, not what’s at the surface,” he explained. Weaver took his samples on the covenant between the property line and Shawnigan Creek from a pool of water that’s part of a little run-off stream that goes from the site to the creek. The renowned scientist said high levels of chemicals like thorium jumped out at him as being unusual.

Fire destroys vacant house Tuesday night SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Neighbours lauded firefighters for their speed and efficiency after an abandoned house went up in flames around midnight Tuesday. The blaze took down the old blue house on Cowichan Lake Road. “The firefighters were amazing,” said nearby resident Amy Powell, who managed to snap a few photos of the volunteer crews hard at work. “It could have been a different outcome especially if the trees caught fire,” she added. The risk of spreading is what South End fire hall deputy chief Brad Coleman said prompted the call for mutual aid from the Duncan Fire Department. “There was a lot of exposure to the brush and trees,” he said. “They helped us initially and then they peeled away and we finished off.” At the peak, about 35 firefighters were on the scene. It only took about a half an hour to knock the flames down, Coleman said, but the rest of the overnight hours were spent mopping

up hot spots. Firefighters monitored the site and were back in the morning to ensure a rekindle wouldn’t happen. “The roof came in and there was a lot of brick and debris on the floor so we basically just flooded it from outside and then it still had a little bit of heat in the floor joists so we couldn’t get at it,” he explained. “I brought a machine in this morning and we went through all of the debris with a machine and hosed it as he was digging through it.” The benefit of the abandoned structure burning right to the ground is safety, said the deputy chief. “At least it’s level and more safe now,” Coleman said. “It’s pretty much flattened out as opposed to a semi-standing structure.” It’s the third fire at an abandoned home in the last month. Fires at two abandoned houses in Duncan in mid June left police and firefighters on heightened alert and on the lookout for a firebug. The first fire was on Festubert Street and repor ted about

Police and safety agencies from up and down the Island gathered in the Cowichan Valley on July 10, for an evening of Counterattack roadside check stops. Officers checked out about 2,500 vehicles at two different locations in what became an expensive night for some motorists. One 90-day immediate roadside prohibition was issued. That citation includes a 30-day vehicle impoundment. Three other drivers got three-day immediate roadside prohibitions which include three-day vehicle impoundments. Cops also gave one driver a 24-hour drug related suspension and another driver, who sported an ‘N’ a 12-hour alcohol-related suspension. All suspended drivers will have to apply to have their licence reinstated after they pay hefty fines upwards of $500. They are also on the hook for the tow bill and the subsequent storage bill for their vehicle. Several other motorists were issued violation tickets under various sections of

the Motor Vehicle Act and one excessive speeder who was caught travelling more than 40 kilometres per hour above the posted speed limit, was ticketed, and had his vehicle towed away and impounded for seven days. “All in all it was a very costly Friday evening for some Cowichan Valley motorists, but it’s only money,” Hobday said. “The toll on a family that loses a family member to a drunk driver cannot be measured.”

An armed man with an Australian accent held up the Crofton Hotel Wine and Beer store Monday night. The incident left the lone female employee “understandably shaken,” said police. “A masked man entered the store just before 11 p.m. Monday night, wielding a knife and demanding all of the cash in the till,” North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday said. “The female employee handed over the cash and the man fled.” It was only after he left that the staffer was able to call for help. “Duncan RCMP Victim Services attended

the scene and offered their services to the visibly shaken employee,” Hobday said. Despite the terror of her ordeal, the employee was able to tell police they’re looking for a very pale, freckled Caucasian man standing about five-foot-six inches tall. He has a slender build, blue eyes, and is about 25 years old. The man wore a black balaclava with two turquoise horizontal stripes, a dark hoodie and gloves. He is believed to have possibly left the area in a dark-coloured Sunfire. Those with information regarding this or any other crime are encouraged to contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250748-5522 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

POLICE beat

Left-hand turn leads to pickup truck crash SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

One man was transported to hospital and a father and his daughter were left shaken after two pickup trucks collided on the Trans Canada Highway at Allenby Road Monday night at about 8 p.m. According to North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday, a 45-year-old American man and his nine-yearold daughter were headed south in the left lane on the highway when a 39-year-old man from Cowichan Bay turned in front of them. He had been headed north and

was trying to turn left onto Allenby Road at the time. “Both vehicles collided in the intersection as they proceeded on an amber light,” Hobday described. The 2005 Chevrolet Colorado driven by the Americans and the 1998 Toyota Tacoma driven by the local man both required towing. The Valley resident was taken to hospital for neck and shoulder pain. Ever yone was wearing seatbelts. A violation ticket was issued to the Toyota driver “for turning left in front of the other driver,” Hobday said.

it and going over it with a crew and really watching for dry and hot spots,” Coleman added. The golf course did sustain some damage in the fire, but not enough to shut it down. “It’s business as usual,” Duncan Meadows superintendent Dave Brummitt said. “There’s obviously damage; you can’t have a fire with 50km/h winds and not have damage, but the damage to the course itself is minimal.” Brummitt said power was restored to the course on Tuesday afternoon. The course is well-prepared for incidents like fires, he added. “We have fire-suppression equipment,” he said. “We have a backup generator. Those sorts of things. [Owner Ming Hui] and I have been doing this for a long time, but you can’t expect the unexpected.” Brummitt expressed his thanks to the staff and volunteers at the golf course, as well as the firefighters and BC Wildfire Service crews that got things under control so quickly. “There were quite a number of people there,” he said. “We were very impressed with the community support.”

Hot spots continued to make work for firefighters days after the initial blaze was extinguished at Duncan Meadows Golf Course, but business at the course has continued. South End Fire Hall’s deputy chief Brad Coleman said crews from his hall and from Khowutzun Forest Services have continued to monitor the site since Monday. “Any time you have that magnitude of a fire, there’s going to be roots in the ground and various things that still hold some heat,” Coleman said. “Over time they just tend to get going.” A downed power line charged a fence which resulted in flames running along about 1.2 kilometres of Highway 18. Winds allowed the fire to jump across the street and into a farmer’s field. Members from the South End hall were joined by North Cowichan’s Maple Bay and Crofton fire halls, and crews and equipment from the Duncan, Sahtlam, Cowichan Bay, Ladysmith and North Oyster

fire departments. The BC Wildfire Service sent a ground crew and a helicopter to put out the Monday afternoon fire. “The overwhelming response from our neighbours who helped our firefighters by supplying additional crews and equipment is a g reat demonstration of the quality of our firefighting services in the Cowichan Valley,” North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure said. They were called out at 2:45 p.m. and had things under control by 6 p.m. Monitoring and mop-up work has continued ever since. Khowutzun Forest Services has kept an active watch on the site while the South End firefighters have gone over regularly to check it out as well. “It really takes a few days sometimes to see little things that flare up,” Coleman said. “Especially, you can imagine, old stumps that go into the ground because the fire tends to chase the roots so you find little places that are just burning under the ground sometimes.” The dry ground exacerbates things as well. “It’s a matter of fine-tuning

OUR VIEW

Let your kids have some fun; we all survived

W

hen investigating the disappearance of the much-loved rope swing at Bright Angel Park this week, we couldn’t help but consider the possibility that somebody arbitrarily decided it was too dangerous and removed it. From photos sent to the paper, it certainly appears that the branch to which it was tied was deliberately cut with a chainsaw of some kind. While simple vandalism is a more likely explanation, it got us thinking further of the kind of unfettered summer fun most of us who are now adults experi-

enced when we were children, and how a lot of the things we did are now off-limits to many kids, deemed too unsafe by their parents. The terms helicopter parents and bubble-wrapped kids are well-known to most of us today. They’re descriptive of behaviours that have become prevalent in parenting, as a generation of moms and dads attempt to keep their kids out of harm’s way both physically and emotionally — to a fault sometimes, we would argue. One case in the U.S. brought the whole thing to a head earlier

ABOUT US

OTHER VIEWS

this year when a mom and dad from Maryland were investigated by Child Protection Services because they let their kids, 10 and six, walk to and from a neighbourhood park with just each other for company. Someone called in a complaint, seeing the duo walking together, and police were called and it turned into a ridiculous hullabaloo. Most of us remember that when we were kids we ran around our neighbourhoods — and even further afield — from daybreak to sunset with maybe a few check-ins during the day

Nobody called the police, and nobody was injured beyond the usual childhood scrapes, tears and the occasional broken bone. Somehow, we all survived. And it was a heck of a lot of fun. We’d push logs out into the ocean, clinging to them as we kicked away from shore where parents were watching. We’d compete to see who could jump from the highest step, who could climb the highest. But, paedophiles, crime, the argument goes. Facts help here. Crime rates are down from when we ran wild.

It can be hard to let your kid start to be independent. But you have to arm them with knowledge, then send them out into the world. Not all kids will be ready at the same age. Helicopter behaviour, in the end, can create kids who are immature, afraid of the world, don’t know how to solve their own problems, are overly dependent on their parents and don’t know how to properly assess risks they will inevitably come across in their lives. It’s a disservice to them, not a gift. We have to let kids be kids and have fun — like we did.

Dam at Copper Canyon might be good for future Revisit Copper Canyon. With the recent water shortages, perhaps we should look again at a plan regarding the Copper Canyon watershed. If a dam was put in at Windy Point, on Mt. Sicker, it is about the narrowest part of the Copper Canyon. Most, if not all the good timber has been taken out of the canyon all the way up. If an 18 to 20 mile long lake was formed in this watershed, the lower reaches of the Chemainus River could have the flow controlled much better than what happens now. Electricity could be generated through turbines and this area of the Island could use another source for power. A

large hatchery and then salmon runs could be brought back to the Chemainus River with controlled water flow. Drinking water would be plentiful as well as a great new recreation site. Just my thought with the changing climate situation. Paul Bottomley Ladysmith

Not so good for Regina Drive residents Re: July 17 park/trail swap What a great deal! The land developer gets to turn an “overgrown buffer zone” park into a driveway, while the rest of the North Cowichan

landowners get a trail that they will have to pay more in taxes to maintain. This new “walking trail” will probably turn into another offroad motorized track, just like some of the other trails in the area. I am sure the owners of the property are very happy with this “awesome trade”, but I would guess the residents of Regina Drive are not so happy.

It’s always disappointing when people who disagree with you question your sincerity. Mark Williams does so to the dozens of One Cowichan supporters working to make Cowichan the solar capital of B.C., who are doing so in part because of these considerations. First, Cowichan households will send well over a billion dollars out of the Valley in the next decade to pay for energy — money that could be invested in local jobs and the local economy if we generated more of our electricity here and began to switch to electric vehicles. Second, all energy, including solar, has impacts. Just ask the farmers in Peace River now fighting the massive Site C proposal how benign they consider hydro power to be. It’s a matter of weighing these impacts, and demanding they be reduced, as we must also do with solar manufacturers who are now moving to implement recycling programs for panels. Third, the future of energy is electric as we move off fossil fuels. We will need more diverse electricity sources, a more decentralized and resilient system, and more smart technology applications to reduce emissions, as other countries are now doing. The time has come for solar to play its part in a low carbon energy mix, and Cowichan can be a leader in this regard.

◆ LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Septic fields don’t make soil dumping okay In response to Mr. Brackenbury’s letter and comments re: Shawnigan Lake septic and the Shawnigan Residents Association, nobody denies that some septic fields leak, but that is in the purview of Health agencies. The association is strictly volunteer, with no legal powers. Its budget comes entirely from its members. Campaigns cost money. As to the SRA feeling they are more qualified than both the Ministry of the Environment, and the Appeal Board, that is not so. When the association had questions, it hired professional scientists and used contributed professional engineers’ opinions, all of which indicated a serious problem with the SIA plan and chosen dumping site. Ours, and other lawyers, agree that the Appeal Board was wrong which is why the SRA launched a judicial appeal. The association would be happy to “hound” residents

about their septic fields, and would be pleased to use Mr. Brackenbury’s contribution to the association to help pay for that campaign.

Misguided special interests pushing solar

Unleashed dogs attacking chickens Re: Dog owners no respect To all you irresponsible dog owners. I am sick and tired of people who feel they can let their dogs run wild on the Trans Canada Trail near the Kinsol Trestle. Over the last four years we have had numerous attacks on our chickens and goat because people pay no attention to the signs at each gate stating all dogs must be leashed, but just let their dogs run wild. We are senior citizens trying to make a few dollars by having chickens, therefore we sell free range eggs and our hens are bing attacked in our yard and chicken coop. The CVRD needs to enlarge

Marlene Spaeth Duncan

I can understand if individuals want to do their own personal installations of solar panels at their own cost — have at it! But there is no way local government should be using our property taxes to finance this money losing proposition, as advocated by Mayor Lefebure and councillors Kate Marsh, Rob Douglas and Maeve Maguire who all support the Climate Action Energy Plan, that includes using our property taxes to do just that. Why does Mayor Lefebure insist he makes money with his home installation of solar panels when the plain facts indicate otherwise? I attended a solar panel presentation last fall put on by the carbon busters. The mayor was there too. One of the contractors at the presentation told me

that the average cost to install an average home’s 4.4 kilowatt capacity was about $17,600 and about $22,400 if financing was required. He also stated that North Cowichan had about 1,100 hours of sunlight for operation. The contractor said that a 20 year amortization (years of operation) was a reasonable life expectancy for the system. Given those facts, the cost to produce a kilowatt is $0.23 for solar power. Why would anyone produce solar power when you can buy clean, green, and unlike wind and solar power, on demand, BC Hydro power for $.08 kw? If you sell your solar generated power back to BC Hydro, the solar provider gets a credit of $0.10 per kw. How does Mayor Lefebure figure he is making a profit when the solar producer is in fact losing anywhere from $0.13 to $0.15 per kw? Sounds like misguided special interests taking over North Cowichan council to me. Don Swiatlowski North Cowichan

Opinion

| Cowichan Valley Citizen ◆ LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The climate change argument continues — just follow the government money!

7045494

After doing a little searching I happened upon http://climatechange.procon. org/#background showing both sides of the coin and all I see are world governments spending tax dollars proclaiming solutions that never seem to amount to anything other than more taxation and regulation. Locally, we have governments at two levels who believe they have the answer. The B.C. government has the carbon tax and North Cowichan has the Climate Action & Energy Plan. The province charges .07/litre on gas and the revenue goes into tax reductions including: • income tax credits for low income individuals • lowering the first two personal income tax rates by five per cent • providing northern and rural homeowners a benefit of up to $200 annually • lowering business taxes North Cowichan gave us the Climate Action & Energy Plan, a .5 per cent tax increase. If I understand the plan correctly, this fund helps buy capital items to replace energy consuming items such as fuel dependent cars with electric cars etc. So, in essence, instead of taking money from an existing budget that was already in place, they added another tax and rather

7081867

large capital work plan under the “climate change” moniker. From 1998-2009 the U.S. government spent $99 billion for work related to climate change and yet they still fail to meet their goals in terms of C02 reductions. Regardless of which side of the coin you’re on, when it comes to the climate change question, one thing is for certain. If you follow the money, it will always lead to a government body who believes every good solution involves new taxes and a healthy dose of social engineering. Rob Saare North Cowichan

Double standard water restrictions Okay, what happens to grass when it turns brown? The politicians inform us that our lawns don’t die but instead go dormant. However, the municipality and school districts continue watering the playing fields in order to, and I quote, “avoid having to do costly replacements of turf in the fall”. Doesn’t the grass on the playing fields go dormant after it turns brown? Hubert Crevels Lake Cowichan

More than 350 people gathered at Kerry Park to hear the results of the province’s water testing. [GEORGIA COLLINS PHOTO] is very difficult to earn trust on future activities.” That’s why some 350 people attended Thursday night’s open house, said Shawnigan Lake Area Director Sonia Furstenau. She said her community has no trust in the Ministry of Environment, and even less after the meeting. “If the province is so confident about the results and the decisions they are making around the site, then why did they feel the need to limit public questions?” she asked. “Why wouldn’t they answer the questions that were asked publicly last night?” she wondered. “Why didn’t they send

somebody that had the capacity to answer those questions? This government is saying one thing and behaving in a very different way.” Furstenau maintains the community will never give up on its future and on the safety of its drinking water. “What’s astonishing to me is that no matter how much information comes to light about the past behaviour of this company, the secret deals, the concealed information, the ministry seems determined to act in the interest of the private company and not in the interest of the community,” she said. “We won’t ever give up.”

Have a cough that just won’t go away? Does your chest hurt when you breathe deeply? Do you often wheeze or are short of breath? Do you ever cough up phlegm with blood in it? You may not have lung cancer but it’s worthwhile having it checked. Lung cancer has no early warning signs in its early stages but as with most diseases, early detection increases the chances of better treatment.

“Thorium is not something that’s just in the background at this location so it begs the question, what is actually below the surface? Frankly, that’s what’s concerning the people of Shawnigan Lake,” Weaver said. “I think the ministry has not done due diligence on this and I’m really quite shocked that they would try to imply that nothing’s wrong with what’s buried there when they did not test below the surface.” He found 16 other chemicals at varying levels above what’s normal. “There are enough questions from these results that I did to imply that more research needs to be done on the site,” Weaver said, though he couldn’t say what, if anything, is under there. “I have hunches, of course. My hypothesis is that there’s some kind of industrial parts buried under there that I would test for. I would love more than anything else for my hypothesis to be false, but I would test it.” It all comes down to trust, Weaver said. “The question is not are people at risk today? That’s not an issue. I would agree with the ministry because nobody’s health is at risk today,” he said, adding that nobody would ever be drinking out of the water he took his samples from. “The question is can people trust that what’s being deposited on that site is not only permitted material, but that it’s staying within its authorized boundaries? “If there are outstanding questions on prior activities, it

Junior Council offers taste of public life to Valley’s youths KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

For the second year in a row, the City of Duncan’s Junior Council was tasked with taking the concerns of young people in the Cowichan Valley to local governments. Junior Council held its annual meeting at City Hall in late July, addressing a wide range of issues important to local youth, including a safe gathering place, a “food forest strategy,” texting and driving, and the possibility of hosting a large sporting event for young people. Led by Junior Mayor Jenni Capps and including councillors Alberta Blue, Chelsea George, Nikolai Lampson, Emma Kononowicz and Raven Myren, Junior Council consists largely of current students, former students and recent graduates from Cowichan Secondary, with one each from Island Oak and the Cowichan Valley Open Learning Cooperative, and rounded out by an international student who had to leave Canada once school ended and missed the council meeting. Junior Councillors serve two-year terms that are offset so half turn over each cycle. Although Junior Council got its start with Safe Youth Cowichan, only three of the members —

including Mayor Capps — joined through that organization. Kononowicz, a second-year council member, was dragged out by a friend. “My friend asked me to come to a meeting. She didn’t even say what it was for.” Most recruitment for Junior Council is done at schools. In the run-up to this year’s session, Junior Council made presentations at several schools, including the main and Quamichan campuses of Cowichan Secondary, Frances Kelsey, and CVOLC. “Schools are the best places to find a larger group,” Capps said. Although there was an internal election for mayor in the 2013/14 year when Capps was picked, there have so far been just enough volunteers to fill the available council positions. They haven’t yet determined what would be done if there were more candidates than spots. “We haven’t had to have an election,” Capps said. “It would be cool if we had to organize an external election. We’d have to discuss that.” Since joining Junior Council, Kononowicz has also become a full-fledged member of the city’s environment committee. One of the resolutions out of last month’s meeting requested that the city ask for a member of Junior Council to be appointed to the CVRD’s regional transit committee because of the importance of transit for young people. Junior Council will begin its process earlier next year, with an election in November, orientation in January, a Committee of the Whole meeting in February, and a Council meeting in March. The June meeting was the last for out-going Mayor Capps, but it probably won’t be the last that Valley residents hear from her, as she has already demonstrated serious interest in politics, having run for North Cowichan municipal council last fall. Her time on Junior Council has been extremely positive, she noted. “It’s been a really great opportunity,” she said. “Everyone has such cool ideas.”

The Cowichan Valley Regional District has approved $5,000 for an Incubator Farm pilot project. Judy Stafford of Cowichan Green Community, which will be running the project, was on hand to answer questions about the endeavour from the board last week. On July 15, North Cowichan council authorized a standard five-year licence of occupation for a three-and-a-half acre parcel on Lakes Road on the southwest side of the Beverly Street dike. Along with the funding from the CVRD, the CGC has secured $30,000 in other grants for the project to date, Stafford reported to the board. The plan is to start putting infrastructure in place on the farm and restoring the land, which was once used for farming but has fallen into disuse. The final goal is to build a working seed farm, with a seed school. Planting is not in the cards for this summer, Stafford said, as the bone

Museum digs in for national collection PAT FOSTER SPECIAL TO THE CITIZEN

The Cowichan Lake Community Forest Co-op presented a $2,000 cheque to the Kaatza Station Museum on Monday, July 6 during a groundbreaking ceremony held at the museum to celebrate the commencement of building an addition there late in the fall of 2015. This addition will house the 250 boxes of the International Woodworkers of America’s (IWA) provincial and national collection. This includes documents, maps, banners, films and other artifacts that need to be preserved. Cowichan Valley MLA Bill Routley spoke about the importance of having this collection in a safe accessible place so it is available for the public and researchers. The Cowichan Lake area played a lead role in the formation of the IWA and many of the leaders in the union movement have come from this area. At the celebration, John Mountain, job evaluator with the United Steelworkers’ District 3, spoke on behalf of the district’s director, Stephen Hunt, who

Lorne Scheffer, chair of the Cowichan Lake Community Forest Co-operative added that the co-op is very proud that the collection is going to be in Lake Cowichan. H e a l s o e m p h a s i z e d h ow important the union has been to the safety and wellbeing of workers in the industry. Bruce Ingram, finance chair of the Forest Co-op presented a cheque in the amount of $2,000 to Pat Foster, President of the Kaatza Historical Society. This cheque will assist the fundraising committee in their efforts to raise funds for the addition.

COLOURFUL CULTURE ON CUPE STAGE

The Wilmer Gold collection includes priceless pieces of logging history. [IWA WILMER GOLD COLLECTION]

Kaatza asks for public cash support LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

6955607

The Cowichan Lake Community Forest Co-operative is asking retired and active loggers in and around Duncan for financial help to support an expansion of the Kaatza Museum in Lake Cowichan to house the Wilmer Gold collection of photographs as well as 250 banker boxes holding the B.C. and national collection of photographs assembled over the years by the IWA and the International Steelworkers. The Kaatza Historical Society has embarked on a $110,000 expansion to safely preserve in controlled refrigeration the collection of the over 1,000 negatives that comprise the Gold collection, shelving the union collection in preparation for eventual cataloguing. The Community Forest Co-operative has pledged to match every personal donation made towards the project, up to a total maximum of $30,000 – provided the donation is made prior to the end of 2015. Co-op chairman Lorne Scheffer is proud to see this collection come to the Cowichan Lake area, a cradle of the IWA. “We exist as a forest co-operative in order to deliver benefits to local communities and local loggers — and all workers in the forest industry — and we believe it is important to preserve this historic record,” Scheffer said. Gold’s work appeared in Time, Life, Look and MacLean’s magazines. He also authored the book Logging As It Was containing many of his photographs, which traced the lives of the loggers and evolution of logging on Vancouver Island. He died on April 14, 1992, just a few weeks short of his 99th birthday. During his working life, Gold had a portable developing lab custom built and towed it behind his car. This trailer has been restored and can be seen at the Kaatza Museum as well. To help sponsor the museum’s expansion, check out kaatzamuseum.ca for more information.

He cautioned Connelly that books written on British Columbia “exaggerate some things but, on the whole, they are not far out. There is plenty of game, but you must know how to get it, also plenty of fish, but it will not come out of the rivers or the sea of its own account, as they would lead you to suppose. I killed, myself, in an hour, in the river that runs through one of our claims, 16 trout, some weighing over three pounds. “I was the first of any one of the settlers round [here] that ever caught anything [in the river near his farm]. They say that in the summer you can catch all you want, but I have not been here a summer yet, and I found it just as good sport, shooting duck, geese, grouse and snipe here as at home, only they are more plentiful here, but as wild...” Such was, at least for William H. Lee and his mother, life on the Vancouver Island frontier of 128 years ago. It was a life of hard physical labour but one of immeasurable rewards, and it sounds almost idyllic today. Except for that hard physical labour, of course. www.twpaterson.com

Andrew Brown accepted at $1,000 donation on behalf of Providence Farm from poppy chairperson Alyce Joy Blom at the legion meeting on June 21. Two cheques of $140 each were presented by Blom to Alexandra Gelinas on behalf of Duncan’s Navy League, one for RCSCC Admiral Mainguy branch and one for the RCSS Summerville branch. • Cowichan Valley artist Keith Chisholm is one of 52 finalists for the first ever Salt Spring National Art Prize. Chosen from over 800 artists and 1,367 works, these 52 artists will contend for $25,000 in prize money and have an opportunity to elevate their careers by gleaning exposure and valuable industry recognition. A jury made up of Vicky Chainey Gagnon (St. John’s, NL.), Holger Kalberg (Winnipeg, MB.) and Ian Thomas (Salt Spring Island, B.C.) chose artists from four regions. The show will be unveiled Sept. 25 with the announcement of prizes about a month later.

• Ray Wheeler of the Golfers Against Cancer committee presents the proceeds from the 26th annual event held at Mt. Brenton, Cowichan and Arbutus Ridge golf courses on June 12 to volunteers, Margaret Davis and Maureen Hyde, of the Canadian Cancer Society Cowichan Valley Unit. This year’s event raised $35,500 for the Canadian Cancer Society bringing the total raised to over $500,000, Hyde said, praising “the very generous support from the three golf clubs, the golfers who participate and all of those who donate auction items each year.”

ON THE

A Lifejacket Only Works if Your Wear It Here are some things to consider:

Around 100 people die in boating-related accidents every year. For many, wearing a properly sized lifejacket or personal flotation device would have made the difference between life and death. The law requires that all recreational boats have enough Canadian-approved flotation devices of the appropriate size, for everyone on board. You may choose between a lifejacket or a personal flotation device (PFD).

nd

How big is your boat? • Large vessel (with cabin[s]) • Open small boat (under 6m/20 ft) Where will you be? • Open water (ocean, big lakes), • Near shore (small lakes, calm rivers), or • Fast water (white water or flood conditions) What will you do? • Go canoeing, kayaking, or paddle boarding • Enjoy towing sports • Sail • Fish and hunt • Cruise How should it fit? • Comfort is important, so shop around for a lifejacket that will look and feel great on you. • It must fit snugly so it doesn’t ride up over your chin or ears. • Do not buy a size for a child to “grow into.” It must fit now. Also look for the handle on the collar and crotch strap when buying a child’s PFDs. • Test your new PFD in the water to learn how it works. Swim, float and play in the water so you are comfortable wearing it.

Does it still float? • Don’t rely on a worn out lifejacket. Regularly check to make sure it still floats properly. To learn more about lifejackets, PFDs and boating safety, visit the Transport Canada website at www.tc.gc.ca/boatingsafety.

H.W. Wallace 250-701-0001 5285 Polkey Rd., Duncan

Born in Barnston, County of Stanstead, Quebec Edna passed away quietly at home, as was her wish. Predeceased by her husband Clifford in 1996. Edna will be missed by her friends Mary and Margaret, her tea party partners, her Rosewood family, and many others.  All who knew her, embraced her quiet presence, quick wit, mischievous twinkle, incredibly warm smile, and her delight in giving and receiving a hug. Thanks to Dr. Booth, Dr Masuda, and the Home Care Nurses, for their care and guidance. Special thanks to Joseph (Edna’s knight in shining armour), his co-workers, and to Edna’s Team (Sabine, Kelly, Bette, Emilie, and Jane), whom she graciously accepted  to care for her, maintaining her comfort and dignity, with love. TEA When the world is all at odds And the mind is all at sea Then cease the useless tedium And brew a cup of tea.

HOLDEN, Elizabeth Ann (nee Liersch)

There is magic in its fragrance There is solace in its taste And the laden moments vanish Somehow into space.

It is with mixed emotions that the Robert E. Holden family announce the passing of Elizabeth Ann Holden (nee Liersch) showing her usual grace, in the early morning at home July 20, 2015. Together, we thank Ann’s Khenipsen Road friends along with all Ann’s other special friends that took part in her journey through a wonderful life.

And the world becomes a lovely thing There’s beauty as you’ll see All because you briefly stopped To brew a cup of tea.

We also are most grateful to Dr. Lyn Pascoe, doctors and nurses at CDH and the wonderful nurses and care givers of the Home and Community Care support group, also Nurses Next Door, all, whose presence was never an intrusion.

We will take a moment, Edna, to enjoy a cup of tea, brewed in a Brown Betty (if possible), in a proper china cup, in remembrance of you! No service by request. Donations maybe made, in memory, to the Cowichan Valley SPCA. Edna’s remains will be sent for burial in the McKee Family Plot in Danville, Quebec.   Online condolences may be made at www.hwwallacecbc.com

The personal counsel of the Reverend Deborah Rivet, Minister of St. Peters Anglican Church, has been a wonderful experience, helping Ann and family through the transition from this life to her future one. Service will be held at St. Peters Anglican Church (off Maple Bay Road) on Saturday July 25, 2015 at 1 pm. A private Burial Service will be held thereafter, followed by a gathering for friends and family at home, 1168 Khenipsen Road.

Thunder walk away with banner MISMATCH: Cowichan

sweeps into provincials KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

For an Island championship series, the intermediate B battle between the Cowichan Valley Thunder and the Juan de Fuca Whalers was a mismatch of ridiculous proportions. In sweeping the best-of-three series two games to none, the Thunder outscored the Whalers by more than a five-to-one margin, winning 18-3 at the Island Savings Centre last Friday and 25-5 at Colwood’s Q Centre on Wednesday night. The Whalers jumped out to a two-goal lead last Friday, but it didn’t take long for the Thunder to put them in their place. Cowichan got four goals from Colin Winship that night, three each from Tyson Black and Kyle Page, and two each from James Taylor, Brody Black and Brayden Zunti, while Mathieu Jung and Olin Webb added singles. Jung and Tyson Black each had five assists, Winship added four, Taylor had three, Zunti and Brody Black had two apiece, and Page, Liam Clinging, Travis Clark, Thomas Charlie and Dallas

McLaughlin had one each. Kain Stewart earned the win in goal. On Wednesday night, Jung and Winship each scored five times, James Taylor and Tyson Black had hat tricks, and Zunti, Kyle Page and Steven Robertson each had two, with singles from Brody Black, Clayton Vickers and Jacob Taylor. Jung and Tyson Black added five assists apiece, James Taylor and Mitch Page each had four helpers, Kyle Page had three, Winship had two, and Zunti, Robertson, Jacob Taylor, Brody Black, Dawson Webb and Tyler Weidenfeld had one each. Stewart and McLaughlin split duties in net. Combining regular-season and playoff results, the Thunder finished the Island season with 14 wins and two losses, scoring 248 goals and allowing just 78. Next up for the Thunder are the provincial championships in Langley on July 31 to Aug. 3, where they will face the Ridge Meadows Burrards, Delta Islanders and the winner of the playoff series between the Coquitlam Adanacs and Langley Warriors. The Thunder haven’t played any teams off the Island yet, so they don’t know what to expect from the provincial tournament.

After a 25-5 victory on Wednesday, the Thunder are through to the B.C. intermediate B championships. Black had six points over the two nights. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN]

Box lacrosse opportunities should boost sport for women KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Hoping to reinvigorate women’s lacrosse in the Cowichan Valley, the Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association and Cowichan Storm are looking for athletes of any age who are interested in trying out box lacrosse. While women’s field lacrosse has a long history in the Cowichan Valley, there hasn’t been a box program here, and organizer Naomi Walser is hoping that a box program will kickstart both

field and box disciplines. “To date, the only place for females in Cowichan to play has been in women’s field lacrosse [with the Cowichan Storm] with one team to play against in Victoria during the summer months,” Walser said. “With soccer and girls field hockey in the same season we want to offer something free and fun for girls to try lacrosse too.” Until this year, Nanaimo hosted the only female box lacrosse program on Vancouver Island, with

teams for players between the ages of eight and 21. This year, a new program also started in Victoria. Both the Nanaimo and Victoria programs send teams over to the Lower Mainland to play. With the creation of the box program, Victoria has also adapted their field lacrosse program to align with the Lower Mainland field lacrosse leagues that play from September to December. Box lacrosse is played during the summer months on the same surfaces as ice hockey, so it

makes sense to play field in the fall and winter. The skills from the two sports transfer back and forth very well. “With B.C.’s mild climate, lacrosse players are able to take the sport back to the field during the winter with competition lasting from fall to spring,” Walser said. “We would ideally like to align with the rest of the province for season of play, but the first step is finding players.” Walser also pointed out that field lacrosse is the biggest

NCAA scholarship opportunity for women. “Many players from B.C. are taking advantage of lacrosse opportunities and we want to be able to provide a place to play for females here in Cowichan as well,” she said. Free drop-in women-only sessions are running every Wednesday from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Island Savings Centre until Aug. 19. All players ages eight and up are welcome, and basic equipment is provided.

GCFP falls behind in final series King’s overtime goal leads Warriors to rec lacrosse championship KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

A “wild and crazy game” at Glenora’s Waldon Park on Tuesday evening gave Wheatsheaf the lead over Gord Closson Forest Products in the Nanaimo Senior Men’s Fastball League championship series. Wheatsheaf got an astonishing 17 hits in the contest as they surged to an 11-6 victory over GCFP. In most games, six runs is enough to win, but Wheatsheaf’s onslaught on Tuesday was impossible for GCFP to catch. The score was tied 3-3 after the first and 4-4 after the second, but then Wheatsheaf pulled away. “I thought the game was decided in the [top of the] first inning,” GCFP manager Joe DiLalla said. “Playing catch-up is not a good way to play.” It didn’t help GCFP’s cause that Wheatsheaf hit four home runs while the home team didn’t have any balls leave the yard. “The ball was going out for them, but not for us,” DiLalla said. “Sometimes bats get hot for a team, and that’s what happened for them.” GCFP was held to only five hits by Wheatsheaf hurler Chris McCormick. “Give credit to their pitcher,” DiLalla said. “He shut our bats down.” McCormick did allow eight walks, including two each to

Dom Mansueti connects for a two-RBI single in the first inning of Tuesday’s championship series opener. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN] “It just goes to show you don’t need to get a hit every time,” DiLalla said. The playoff series resumed Thursday night at Wheatsheaf Park in Cedar, and the third game, if necessary, will also be played at Wheatsheaf next Tuesday. DiLalla hopes the team is still in action next week. “We knew it was going to be tough,” he said. “Hopefully we can answer back. I’d love to see a third game.”

Brad Robinson, Dave Devana and Dan Whiteford. “Usually that will hurt a pitcher, but he got away with it,” DiLalla said. “He pitched a good game; he pitched around our strong hitters.” Dennis Young had the best night at the plate, picking up a double on his lone hit. Whiteford, Trevor Gicas, Dom Mansueti and Craig Snyder each had singles. Brad Robinson recorded two RBIs despite not recording a hit.

Ryan King scored his second goal of the game on a pass from Dallas Johnson early in overtime to win the 2015 Cowichan Rec Lacrosse League for the Warriors last Saturday. The Warriors battled back from a 5-4 deficit going into the third period of the league final to force the extra session and win 8-7 over the Cowboys, ending the Cowboys’ two-year reign as league champions. In addition to King’s pair, the Warriors also got goals from Johnson, Luke Van Huizen, Ross Howie, Clarence Klassen, Nick Prangley and Kyle Kaltiainen. Prangley added a pair of assists, while King, Van Huizen, Kaltiainen, Johnson and Naomi Walser added singles. The Cowboys got a hat trick from Pete VandenDungen and two goals from Neil Gailey in the losing effort. Jinder Dhami and Hugh Small also scored, while Bruce Klaassen had four assists, and Gailey and Jamie Rigby had one apiece. The Warriors’ Ardie Sloat ended up on the winning side of the

goaltenders’ duel, allowing one fewer goal than his counterpart, Chris Alphonse. The semifinal on the previous Wednesday wasn’t as close, with the Cowboys defeating the Thunder 10-4. Bruce Klaassen had three goals for the Cowboys, Prangley added a pair, and Dhami, Gailey, Howie, Brent Collett and Scott Paziuk also scored. The Thunder got their scoring in the semifinal from VandenDungen, Johnson, Van Huizen and Chuck Seymour. In the year-end awards ceremony, Prangley received the inaugural Blair Pigeon Trophy as league MVP, Johnson was named Rookie of the Year, and Clarence Klassen was named Most Dedicated Player. Prangley finished the season with 46 goals and 16 assists for 62 points over 17 regular-season and playoff games, leading the league in all offensive categories. He was followed by Ben VandenDungen (37 goals and nine assists for 46 points), Pete VandenDungen (27-12-39), Van Huizen (17-13-30), and Bruce Klaassen (14-10-24).

Summer fun for QMS riders KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Valley duo to represent B.C. at national lacrosse tourneys KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Two young lacrosse players are making sure the Cowichan Valley has representation in the national championships for both box and field lacrosse. At the end of this month, Colton Lidstone will head to Whitby, Ontario for the Canadian U16 box lacrosse championships. In late August, Mathieu Jung will head to Halifax with Team BC for the national U18 field lacrosse championships. This will be Lidstone’s first time with a provincial team after 12 years in the sport. After making the top 30 at the initial tryouts, be was informed in an interview with the head coach that he cracked the final roster. “It felt pretty good,” he said. “I was pretty surprised.” Lidstone played box lacrosse this summer with the Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association’s midget A Thunder. In the fall, he will play field for the Mid Island Lightning as well as Claremont Secondary School, where he and Jung both attend the lacrosse academy. “It’s fun,” Lidstone said of Claremont. “There’s a lot of lacrosse.” Lidstone prefers box lacrosse to field, but he did try out for the U18 field lacrosse team, making the second round of cuts despite being two years younger than some other players. In early 2016

he will be eligible for the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League’s draft of graduating midget players. Helping to make his trip to Ontario possible are some sponsors, including the Cowichan Valley Lacrosse Association and the Galley Grill in Shawnigan Lake. For Jung, this will be the second trip to the field lacrosse nationals after he helped B.C. to silver at the U16 tournament in Edmonton in 2014. “It’s a pretty good feeling, knowing you’re one of the best players at your position in B.C.,” he said. This being a return trip to the tryouts, Jung was feeling better about his chances. “I think there was a sense of confidence from having been there before,” he said. “My coach this year is the brother of my coach from last year, so we practiced with him a lot.” Even though he has been to nationals before, he’s anticipating the trip to Nova Scotia even more. “I’m more excited. I haven’t been past Ontario, so it will be nice to see that side of Canada,” he said. “Plus, we’ve got a good roster with quite a few guys committed to schools.” Some of those players will be heading to their new colleges and checking in right before they join Team BC in Nova Scotia. With any luck, Jung will be in that same boat next year, as he has set the firm goal of getting a scholarship before his Grade 12 year at Claremont is over.

Summer vacation doesn’t mean an end to the riding season for members of the Queen Margaret’s School equestrian team. Earlier this month, riders from the school brought home some major awards from the Westcoast Classic at Thunderbird Showpark in Langley. “Thunderbird Showpark continues to be one of our favourite venues to compete at,” QMS equestrian head coach Cheryl Keith said. “Our students and their horses feel comfortable on the course and really enjoy entering the arena each time. When a horse and their rider find that ‘zone,’ great results are bound to happen.” Grade 10 student Emily Cake won consistent ribbons on her mounts, Te Amo and Marlowe in the children’s jumpers, junior hunters and Mini CET Medal rounds. “Emily continues to develop nicely as a rider,” Keith said. “She displays confidence in the saddle and creates positive bonds with the horses she competes on.” Grade 12 rider Kassidy Keith rode Wallabee to victory in the Cobblestone Junior Amateur Hunter Derby and the CET Medal, and placed second in the McClay Medal. Keith also won the WHIS Medal overall on Crackerjack and was reserve champion in pre green hunter on Maplebrook’s Heaven, helping her to the High Point Jun-

Cake and Keith also teamed up with another rider to enter the Just World Fundraiser Costume Class. “The girls dressed up as characters of Frozen while they competed, and they won first place,” Cheryl Keith said. “That class is really fun, yet still competitive.” Coach Keith isn’t one to sit and watch while her students compete. She also took part in competition on Dreamscape Farm’s Farscape DSF, placing second in the Canadian Hunter Derby and earning reserve champion in the hunter 3’6 division.
