Housing plan seeks to re-engage province, feds Victoria plan has ‘a lot of potential,’ says Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen Christine van Reeuwyk Oak Bay News

A City of Victoria proposal of a regional funding plan to end homelessness calls for a levy of $11 per household per year through the Capital Regional Hospital District. “Housing is not something that municipalities should take on,” said Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps, also the co-chair of the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness. “But in the absence of leadership from the federal government, residents of the region can no longer sit by as people – particularly those with mental health and addictions issues – suffer on our streets.” The plan to re-engage other levels of government who used to concern themselves with housing is a good one, says Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen. “What (the City of Victoria initiative is) trying to do is reconstitute a partnership between local governments, the CRD, the province and the federal government,” Jensen said. “Housing the homeless is a priority for the CRD and this initiative I think has a lot of potential. It still requires the buy-in from the federal and provincial government.” The proposal is that the Capital Regional Hospital District serve as the lead agency, in part-

nership with social service providers and local, provincial and federal authorities, to build 367 units of new housing with supports, which the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness estimates to be the number of chronic shelter users requiring housing. They would request the federal government contribute toward the capital costs of the 367 units to reduce or eliminate the need for local contribution, consistent with the Government of Canada’s traditional role supporting the housing needs of Canadians. The proposal requests that the provincial government contribute $7.73-million annually in operating costs toward the support services required to assist the “hardest to house” in maintaining stable housing, a model that currently exists in several buildings funded by the province around the Capital Region operated by the Victoria Cool Aid Society and the Pacifica Housing Society. Oak Bay, and many communities in the region, already contribute funding to a Regional Housing Trust in similar smallscale partnerships. “The majority of the CRD municipalities are involved in the Regional Housing Trust where we pay into the trust fund and that money is levered into partnerships with other agencies including the province, the federal government and non-profit organizations,” Jensen said.

Biking to benefit quality of life Tour de Rock fundraisers and events highlight inherent generosity of Islanders Christine van Reeuwyk Oak Bay News

In the absence of an Oak Bay Police Department rider in the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock this fall, Ray Bernoties has been “adopted” by the community police, despite his role as Chief Superintendent Island District Commander, Island District RCMP. After nearly 24 years as a police officer – primarily with the RCMP – when he transferred to Victoria area 18 months ago, the Tour de Rock was already on his radar. “There are other [Cops for Cancer] Tours in the province but I had already heard about the Tour de Rock. It was on my to-do list when I moved to Victoria,” Bernoties said. “It’s an incredible team, but the whole community really embraces the Tour de Rock. I find it has infiltrated the culture of the Island, far beyond just a bunch of cops riding bikes.” An Oak Bay resident who’s eldest son enters Grade 1 at Willows elementary this fall, he already had work demands on his time that limited him to squeezing in a little T-ball and soccer coaching in the community. Diving into the Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser was a family decision, with support from his wife Carol as well as sons Trevor, 6, and Dexter, 4.

“You dedicate your life for that six to eight months to the Tour, it required a family commitment,” he said. On a personal level, he recalled about 15 years ago, when a young RCMP corporal inspired him run marathons. Sadly, despite being in his early 40s and seemingly healthy, he died of cancer, leaving behind his wife and daughters.  The loss inspired Bernoties’ early fundraising initiatives. In 2006 and 2008 he raised money by participating in ironman triathlons – swimming 3.86k, biking 180k and running 42.2k – raising just over $13,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.  “I had put it away and moved on to other activities. Not long after that my sister was diagnosed with cancer,” he said. While she’s well now, he realized his work there was not done and he joined the Tour. Training is rigorous, even for an avid cyclist. “I think I had underestimated the training, but our trainers train us to a level that will make the actual Tour de Rock enjoyable. “They take us up to a level of ability that will ensure success,” he said. “They’re ruthless but they’re Photo contributed

Tour de Rock Continued from Page A3

Lionel Gjerde, store manager for the Save-On-Foods in Saanich Plaza, is excited for the location’s launch of a pickup service – the first of its kind on Vancouver Island. Customers will be able to order their groceries online, then pick them up at the store without leaving their cars.

Save-On-Foods launches new pickup service Jacob Zinn News Staff

After a busy day of chauffeuring kids to soccer practice, swimming lessons and piano recitals, sometimes that extra stop to pick up groceries is one too many. Which is why Save-On-Foods has brought its successful grocery pickup service to its Saanich Plaza location from the Mainland. Shoppers preorder online, and, while waiting in a designated pick-up lane at the Saanich Plaza store, staff will bring the food to you. The Saanich Plaza location is the first on the Island to do so. ���It’s not just what’s in the flyer, it’s everything in our store,” said store manager Lionel Gjerde. “There’s a lookup, so if you’re looking for a specific item, you just go to the lookup, you pick what you want, add it to your shopping cart and away you go. “Pharmacy, bakery, deli – you name it, it’s all on the screen.” Save-On-Foods currently offers its pickup service in Abbotsford, North Vancouver, Port Coquitlam, New Westminster, South Surrey and Langley. Gjerde said the Saanich Plaza location’s proximity made it an ideal spot to kickoff pickup service on the Island. “It’s central, great parking, great access in and out with Vernon Avenue and Blanshard Street,” he said. “It just makes sense to be able to do your order online, drop in, pick it up and carry on.” The service is free for orders of $40 or more.

The store has converted two parking spaces into a pickup lane – shoppers just need to use the intercom when they arrive and staff will bring out their groceries. Orders placed before noon can be picked up the same day after 4 p.m., with orders placed after noon ready the next day. But Saanich Plaza won’t be alone for long with the pickup service – Gjerde said the Tillicum SaveOn-Foods is about two or three weeks away from launching its own pickup service. He added that during the ordering process, customers can select which location is best for them to pick up their groceries. “Even if you lived over by Tillicum, if our location is better because that’s where you’re going to be that day and you want to take it home or take it to a barbecue, then you can pick whatever location you want,” he said. Gjerde said the service is convenient and ideal for anyone on the go, and can be customized to suit a variety of needs. He said orders can be placed for pickup at later dates, making the service handy when returning from a trip or vacation. “When you come back from a vacation, you go home, what’s the first thing? You open up the fridge and it’s empty,” he said. “You can order in advance and put it on the calendar. “There are lots of different ways to make it work for you.” Save-On-Foods is located at 3510 Blanshard St. To use the pickup service or for more information, go to saveonfoods.com/shop/delivery-area-map.

amazing.” For the Tour, each rider is paired with a youngster facing or in recovery from cancer. Bernoties spoke with his junior rider’s mother, who was in Vancouver with her child in hospital.“I let them know that I’m there for them,” Bernoties said. But he did meet a bunch of upbeat youngsters at Camp Goodtimes, a resource funded by the Cops for Cancer bike rides. “It’s amazingly an incredibly happy place and you don’t expect that. They were dunking us and putting pies in our face and making us shake our bootie,” he said. “It was a great experience.” Following tradition, he’ll shave his head during the Tour stop at Oak Bay High, where staff and students raised more than $40,000 last year. “The other Tours in the province all added up together don’t raise as much as the Tour de Rock does and it speaks to a couple things. One is the great organization and history here, but also the generosity of folks on the Island. The Island is a uniquely compassionate culture. The Oak Bay area specifically is quite generous.” Learn more and contribute at tourderock.ca. reporter@oakbaynews.com

Many hearts, one mind. That’s the slogan behind the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, a two-week bicycle journey along the length of Vancouver Island to raise funds for the fight against childhood cancer. Throughout the 1,000-kilometre, two-week ride, 21 riders will make 122 stops in 27 communities including 46 schools. Since its inception in 1998, Tour de Rock has raised more than $20 million for the Canadian Cancer Society, with last year’s efforts totaling more than $1.1 million.

Deer headed for UBCM debate More than 150 resolutions are on the table in Vancouver Christine van Reeuwyk Oak Bay News

Four members of Oak Bay council head to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention next week (Sept 21 to 25). Mayor Nils Jensen, also a UBCM director, is among the local attendees heading to Vancouver for the annual event to share ideas and peruse more than 150 resolutions put forward for support by communities from around the province. “I’ve found over the years these have been very effective of bringing issues to the premier or ministers,” Jensen said. As the CRD chair, Jensen, along with directors Victoria Coun. Marianne Alto and Central Saanich Mayor Ryan Windsor, plan to meet with the premier regarding First Nations engagement in the Capital Region and

beyond. Alto serves as chair of the First Nations Task Force both on a CRD First Nations Task Force formed earlier this year to explore local aboriginal communities interest in bringing their governments into the CRD decision-making framework. “We’re hoping to get the province to review the governance structure of regional governments to allow First Nation representation on regional governments. Right now there are barriers,” Jensen said. Municipal council members will also debate and vote on a number of resolutions from around the province. “The main part is to do with resolutions where we as a collective of provincial municipalities look at the issues and make recommendations to the province,” Jensen said. “It covers a wide range of issues.” Resolutions range from provisions on mental health and addiction services (brought forward by Delta) to the popular environmental bill of rights supported by many communities including the CRD.

An Oak Bay-generated resolution that went to AVICC then was forwarded to UBCM calls on the provincial government to provide leadership and funding regarding urban deer. “Their role is particularly important given that these are provincial deer that are found in urban areas,” Jensen said. “They have downloaded the issue of deer to local governments. It certainly can be a costly for municipalities to deal with what is in essence a provincial issue.” A handful of mayors from around B.C. with similar concerns over deer populations in their communities have “banded together,” he said, to meet with officials from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, which looks after the management of deer and other wildlife. The Union of B.C. Municipalities convention runs Sept. 21 through 25 in Vancouver.

DFH Real Estate Ltd. plans “a bubbly reception” for a gala fundraiser to honour those lost to cancer and fundraise for a cure “We have lots of tasty nibbles and sparkling bubbles and it’s just going to be a real nice evening,” said organizer Susan Dunn. Bubbles and Bites … Popping Corks for the Cure honours DFH founder Dominic Francis Hanley who died in September 2014 after a short battle with cancer. “The BC Cancer Foundation named DFH an ambassador because the founder of our company … made a very sizeable, generous donation,” Dunn said. “They in turn wanted to nominate someone from his association as ambassador. We’re absolutely delighted to hold this fundraiser in Dom’s memory.” The Bubbles and Bites gala offers guests a variety of sparkling wines

and savoury bites from the awardwinning chefs of the Marina. The event will feature a live and silent auction and guests can use the memory ‘bubble wall’ to honour those lost to, or sick with, cancer. “The intent is that people can come and buy a bubble and inside will be a prize, but what happens when they purchase the bubble is they can put a person’s name on this special bubble wall we’re making,” Dunn said. The evening will also feature keynote speaker Dr. Julian Lum on behalf of the BC Cancer Foundation. “We’re thrilled to have him, plus we have a personal note from one of our own realtors who is going to share a story,” Dunn said. Funds raised will benefit local cancer research. “We’re focusing our [fundraising] efforts on immunotherapy,” Dunn said. The gala is Sept. 24 from 7 to 10 p.m. at The Marina Restaurant.

OUR VIEW

Bus driver attack a sad state of affairs It was more than disappointing to hear that a bus driver was attacked last week after he told a passenger they could no longer get off at a decommissioned stop at Kings Road and Douglas Street. It was even more disappointing – though perhaps not surprising – to hear that attacks on bus drivers are on the rise. In the latest incident, the passenger proceeded to beat the driver while the bus was moving. The attack continued even when the driver managed to pull the bus over at the intersection of Douglas and Bay streets. What’s even more sad is that passengers got off while the attack continued. Why didn’t anyone intervene? The attack eventually stopped once the driver got off the bus and the suspect fled the scene. He was quickly picked up by police and now faces charges of assault causing bodily harm. This driver was simply doing his job. He didn’t wake up that morning expecting to be attacked for informing a passenger about a decommissioned bus stop. He was providing an invaluable service to the many people in our community who rely upon BC Transit to get to work, school, doctors appointments or to remain otherwise connected to their community. We don’t lash out at bank tellers or cab drivers when they inform us about minor inconveniences we don’t necessarily want to hear, so what gives someone the right to hit a bus driver? The fact that assaults – whether it be verbal or physical – on bus drivers are on the rise is alarming. It’s a sad day when protective barriers have to be installed on city buses so drivers can come home unharmed at the end of a work day. What do you think?

We have a society of ‘learned helplessness’ Re: “Urban society slides into helplessness,” Tom Fletcher, Oak Bay News, Sept. 9. I couldn’t agree more with Tom Fletcher’s column on how we now need the government or some other entity to look out for us every day all day. I believe the term for it is “learned helplessness.” Lloyd Jenkins Langford

Orca assertions questioned I question Barbara Julian’s alarmism about the so-called “resident” orcas. Orcas as a species are quite versatile, their preferred diet varies around the world. For example, near Norway they catch herring by collaboration. That’s a fish hard for an individual orca to catch due its small size, and unproductive due to the amount needed to be caught to get adequate nutrition. And the “transient” orcas here prefer sea mammals. Orcas who hang around the B.C. coast and Puget Sound have ready

access to chinook salmon because it does not leave the continental shelf, and to chum salmon returning from the deep ocean in fall. Large oily chunks of food that are not difficult to catch, that’s good eating. But note they go somewhere else for a few months, perhaps to the west side of Vancouver Island, perhaps they find chinook salmon there, perhaps something else. Eco-alarmists like to claim each family or clan is a separate species, so they can claim they are “endangered.” That’s phoniness, not science. The “resident” orcas are family groups, which will die out if they aren’t adaptable. On land, animals move – caribou come and go from the Seward peninsula of Alaska, and sometimes move within Canada (in one case, flapping environmentalists avoided looking where tribal elders said they’d been before, indeed that’s where they were again). The correct question about diet is “what can orcas eat?” If there actually is a shortage of Chinook salmon, will

the orcas who hang around here much of the year adapt as others have elsewhere, or just be Darwin candidates? Gray whales may illustrate the possibilities. While most are dependent on the Bering Sea, a few hundred feed off the BC coast and a few thousand skip the commute and stay off the Oregon coast. The species will survive even if clans die out. Keith Sketchley, Saanich

Oak Bay doc earns Order of Red Cross Christine van Reeuwyk Oak Bay News

Promoting first aid is easy for emergency room physician Dr. Andrew MacPherson. The Oak Bay resident feels decent training makes his job a “heck of a lot easier” when all is said and done. Sept. 12 was World First Aid day, and MacPherson, Medical Director for the Canadian Red Cross National Medical Advisory Committee, celebrated the annual campaign to promote the importance of first aid training in preventing injuries and saving lives. “It makes my job in the emergency room a heck of a lot easier,” he said. “What Red Cross does, and what we teach, is the most current and up-to-date standard in the world. Any Red Cross training you do will be the best, bar none.” That includes everything from first aid training to babysitting to anti-bullying courses. Under his leadership, the Canadian Red Cross pioneered the inclusion of automated external defibrillation training in its first aid courses. Research later demonstrated that the use of an AED along with CPR administered immediately after cardiac arrest can double a person’s chance of survival. “We were one of the leaders including that in one of our training packages. It’s quite impressive. That was about eight years ago, the big push, since then it’s been ongoing improvements in cardiac arrest training and CPR training,” MacPherson said. MacPherson is also the lead author of the Canadian and International First Aid guide-

Board chair Sara John Fowler honors Dr. Andrew MacPherson with the prestigious Order of Red Cross. lines, a document used by all national societies for the creation of their own first aid programs. His dozen years of volunteer work and dedication led to an Order of the Red Cross earlier this year. “It’s the highest award the international movement has, so the criteria surrounding the awarding of the order is very high and very tight. There aren’t many given out,” said Sara John Fowler, national board chair. “We view the award internationally in comparison to the Order of Canada, it’s that level of an award. “For him to be recognized by his peers, and by his country – because it’s a national organization – it not only validates the work that he’s con-

tributed but the calibre of the work. It speaks to the quality of his work and the quality of the people we engage in this high level volunteer positions.” He’s had a long-serving record and is committed to the values she said, which got him through the significant vetting process of the award. “The amount of hours he’s committed, which is all voluntary, above and beyond his practice and as an emergency room physician is inspiring,” Fowler said. “We need to pay attention to our people and the good work that they do. … It’s a commitment above and beyond emergency room medicine. It’s above and beyond first aid. It’s embracing the whole mission, if you

like, of the movement.” The Red Cross mandate is to do no harm and MacPherson, she said, is one of those “ordinary people doing extraordinary things” that make a difference to the organization. “It’s our honour to work with Andrew. We’re very grateful for the contributions that he’s made to the Society but also to first aid internationally. It’s a tremendous accomplishment and we’re very proud that he’s decided to work with us in this delivery,” Fowler said. “We’re so blessed in Canada and in Victoria to have people and an individual like Andrew to do what he can at a very high level. It does ultimately help those situations.” cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Fourteen years after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, Oak Bay’s Jill Ann Siemens is releasing a children’s book, built upon her award-winning song, Sempre Vicino: A Child’s Prayer for Peace. Written in response to the the many children who had lost a friend or relative in the World Trade Centre attacks, the song won the International Song of Peace Award, and promted Siemens to launch the now multi-platiunum recording artists, the Canadian Tenors, after travelling to Ireland with Ken Lavigne to have him perform the song. The tenors have gone on to raise millions of dollars for children who are suffering in the world, Siemens says. “This was always my true desire and motivation – to create musical projects that would give me the means to help needy children by building homes, schools, hospitals, and putting food in hungry stomachs.” Now, the song takes a new form as Siemens and illustrator Sheena Lott release a brand new children’s book, A Child’s Prayer for Peace in time for the International Day of Peace Sept. 21. The song will be sung in the Sunday, Sept. 20 peace service at St. Philip’s Anglican Church on Eastdowne Road at 9 a.m., followed by book sales, with partial proceeds going to supporting an incoming Syrian refugee family. Siemens and Lott will also be at Ivy’s Bookshop Sunday afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. for a book signing. Several draws will include the original recording of the song by The Canadian Tenors, an autographed copy of the book, and an author reading at a selected school classroom. editor@oakbaynews.com

An awesome road trip through B.C. It’s hard to imagine a better way to experience Beautiful British Columbia than to tour its highways and byways in a A six-day, fully-equipped 1,200-kilometre, recreation road trip in an RV vehicle. Recently, yours through some of the truly took a six- most spectacular day, 1,200-kiscenery this province lometre, road has to offer. trip in an RV Keith Morgan through some of the most spectacular scenery this province has to offer, thanks to the generosity of the promoters of the Snowbird RV Show starting Sept. 24, and the help of Destination BC and regional tourist associations. My job puts me behind the wheel of vehicles of all sizes and power, but I must admit to suffering some anxiety about safely steering the seven-metre long, al-

most 3.5-metre tall Adventurer 23RB RV over some challenging terrain. Perhaps the best preparation were the times I have driven large rental trucks during my children’s frequent moves. First stop was a short hour’s drive from Fraserway RV’s rental centre on Annacis Island to Klahanie Campground and RV Park at the stunning Shannon Falls, along Highway 99. Enough time to get an introduction to the vehicle’s size and manoeuvrability. With a Ford V10 gas engine under the hood, power was never a problem.

SOMETIMES ADVENTURE CALLS. CALLS. SOMETIMES IT SHOUTS.

Once docked by the side of Howe Sound, I got the first real opportunity to survey the accommodation: a comfy double bed, fully equipped kitchen, dining table that folds to offer another bed, biffy with shower and yet another bed above the cab, bringing sleeping room for five. The start of Day Two found us enjoying the spectacular views from the top of the new Sea to Sky Gondola. Time to head north through Squamish, Whistler and 100-kilometre mountainous stretch that would hone my skills – the Duffey Lake

Road from just beyond Pemberton to the gorgeous head of Seton Lake and on to Lillooet. It provides awesome scenery between steep inclines, tight switchbacks and narrow one-lane bridges. The auto transmission’s tow mode smoothed out the climbs, descents and need for hard braking. A stiff shot of single-malt whisky at the Pemberton Distillery prepared my drive partner for the breathtaking and scary views deep, down into the valley below. Please see: Roadtrip route, Page A17

Fraser Cove RV Camp, Lillooet

RV roadtrip Continued from Page A13

By the time we reached the 38-degree heat of the Fraser Cove Campground, by the river at Lillooet, I was ready for a chilled Riesling from the nearby Fort Berens winery. The air conditioning worked overtime as we tucked into a warm salad – well, it was by the time it was served. Respect for fellow campers prompted a click of the AC off switch after lights-out. Day Three: Lillooet to Vernon features open highway and the chance to open up the throttle. It’s easy to push the needle to 100 klicks but frankly the higher speed take away from the visual delights displayed on both sides of the road. And as I slowed I put myself in the driver’s seat of the car behind, pulling to the side every time I spotted three cars in my mirror. The Cedar Falls Campground is a picturesque and tranquil woodland spot by Silver Star Mountain. The howling coyotes were a nice reminder that this is wilderness. A further reminder is holding your iPhone in outstretched hand to get a signal from the camp Wi-Fi. We also had mobile Wi-Fi aboard, which worked well on the road. Day Four: A slow drive through the Okanagan Valley to Kaleden, tak-

ing in The Hatch Wines and Mission Hill Estate Winery in West Kelowna and enjoying a barrel tasting at Van Westen Vineyards in Naramata. The skies darkened with a mix of rain-filled clouds and smoke drifting up the valley from the wildfires around Oliver. A gale howled as we settled for the night at the Camp-Along Tent and Trailer Resort. Day Five: Time to empty the discreetly named black water tank. Donned the plastic gloves and got on with it. It all went smoothly,

By now you know. Adding body collagen directly reduces wrinkles, increases skin elasticity, and adds vital moisture to your skin. Indirectly, collagen thickens and strengthens your hair. You may also know that collagen production slows by 1% per year after the age of 21. Can you gain it back? Yes. But not by eating collagen. You see, collagen is a protein. When you ingest it, your body breaks it down, like any other protein, and uses it as food. When you want the real beauty benefits of collagen, you have to generate it.

Vibration exercise platforms help increase strength, flexibility and circulation and improve bone density

THE NEWEST ADDITION TO OUR TEAM. FORMERLY FROM JAMES BAY, EXPERIENCED & ENTHUSIASTIC! ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.

Vibration exercise platforms work by stimulating the body’s natural stretch reflex, creating involuntary muscle contractions. This results in increased strength, flexibility, circulation and improved bone density. POSITIVE EFFECTS ON STRENGTH: We do not use all of our muscles when we move or lift weights. Vibration exercise, because it is involuntary, enables us to engage more muscles, allowing us to do more. This is important as we age since we require strength to stay mobile and maintain independence. POSITIVE EFFECTS ON CIRCULATION: Gentle, rapid contractions allow the muscle to work as a pump, resulting in increased blood flow within the circulatory system. This allows the body to dispose of waste faster, thereby enhancing circulation and recovery.

if you are limited by pain? With vibration exercise you use your own body weight, allowing for maximum joint comfort. A large amount of contractions occur in a short time putting less stress on the joints and allowing the same exercise benefits in 15/20 minutes as compared to one hour in the gym!

POSITIVE EFFECTS ON BONE: Bone responds to the physical stresses put on it. Rapid muscular contractions with vibration will lead to increased strength because of favourable stresses being placed on the bone. LESS STRESS ON JOINTS: When you think of getting stronger do you picture adding more weight to your exercise program? What

Vibration exercise is rapidly gaining popularity as a positive way to provide benefits, especially for those who may otherwise be unable to do regular exercise, or for anyone who wants faster results. Many sports teams use vibration as part of their training programs.

Carlton House celebrates 10 years on The Avenue Jennifer Blyth Oak Bay News

Carlton House marked a decade on The Avenue Tuesday with a grand celebra-

tion for residents and neighbours. “I’m so excited to be part of the success of this building,” said Terez Payette, executive director, Carlton

House of Oak Bay, in welcoming guests and dignitaries to the event. “It’s been a beautiful experience with wonderful owners and

wonderful staff and residents.” In recalling all who worked together to make the dream of a seniors’ residence in the village a reality, “I can’t believe it’s been 10 years,” said Rod Prewett, Director of Carlton House. “I can’t imagine not having Carlton House here; it seems like it’s always been here.” Prewett recalled for guests how the idea for the residence was born. “The idea of Carleton House started on June 27, the year 2000 and it was a long road ... but now here we are with Carlton House taking its place in the community,” he said, recognizing the hard work of the many who were instrumental in the process, including Dr. Brian CarrSmith and wife Sara, architects Bas Smith and Joe Newell, and community members including long-time municipal council members including Mayor Nils Jensen, former mayor Chris-

Terez Payette, Executive Director, Carlton House of Oak Bay emcees the anniversary celebrations in the courtyard. topher Causton and former councillor Peter Bunn. “It’s part of the community and it’s as if it has always been here,” Nils Jensen told the assembled crowd, which included residents Grace Telford and Murray and Merrill Cook, who have called Carlton House home for the full 10 years. Inviting guests to

raise a glass, “it’s a toast to the visionaries ... it’s a toast to the incredible staff and the third part of the toast is to the wonderful residents,” Jensen said. When plans were first underway for the building, Sara CarrHarris stipulated that the two plum trees her mother had planted on the property be retained.

Unfortunately one succumbed this year, so the celebration concluded with a treeplanting ceremony with Carr-Harris, Prewett, Jensen and Causton, who helped plant a new plum tree on the corner of Oak Bay Avenue and Elgin Road. editor @oakbaynews.com

Brokering a mortgage for your new home Jennifer Blyth Oak Bay News

Before shopping for your new home, take the time to shop for a mortgage. Traditionally, that has meant heading to your bank, but some people are appreciating the option of working with a mortgage broker. Either way, having an approved mortgage in hand before searching for your dream home will let you place an offer with confidence that the financials are in place. For Oak Bay couple Liberty and Aaron Smart, a mortgage broker was key to the purchase of their family home on a quiet road just off the Avenue. “A friend suggested contacting a mortgage broker as they offer a very personal hands-on approach and have very competitive rates,” says Liberty. The couple first contacted Paul Macara, a broker Invis-Beyer Mortgage Services, when purchasing a condo in 2010. When the time was right to move into a single-family home perfect for their growing family, Smart again called on Macara. “There were many benefits from using a broker. (He) would meet us when it was convenient for us. My husband works and we have two children Jennifer Blyth/Oak Bay News and he was open to either coming to our home or meeting somewhere convenient,” Liberty says. Aaron and Liberty Smart are enjoying their Oak Bay home, which they bought with the help One of the most compelling reasons to work and advice of a mortgage broker. with a mortgage broker is that they have access to a wide range of lending sources, making it signifi- and when.

All three have appeared at the cabaret over the previous years. Cabaret producer Jim Ricks admits he wasn’t sure how it would work out to have the women perform together. “I had a gut feeling that since they are all highly skilled and very professional in their approach, they would blend well,” Ricks said. “Our first rehearsal, their musical harmony and friendly interaction just blew me away.” The cabaret at Oak Bay United Church, is held the third Friday of each month at 7:30 p.m. It combines an open microphone show where people of all skill levels

can perform in front of warm audience of 90 to 100 people. The second part of the show features professional-level performers who enjoy working in a great environment with an appreciative audience. Also featured on the program this week will be a teaser from the coming show, Musical of Musicals, the band Just Jim and Friends, singers Jared GafterRicks, Rowan Wolfe and Amanda Engel, and monologist Braden Corby. Doors open at 6:45 p.m. Admission is $5 with coffee and treats available at breaks. Guests can also participate in a door prize draw. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com
