Travis Paterson News Staff

Mount Douglas area resident David Poje is bringing the Glendenning Road parking situation to light with rallies at Glendenning on Oct. 17 and 21 at 9 a.m. as well as a delegation to Saanich council on Oct. 26. Poje represents a group of park users who believe Saanich went too far when it installed no-parking signs along the first 150 metres of Glendenning earlier this summer. Glendenning runs north and ends with a small, five-car parking lot on the southwest corner of Mount Douglas Park. “From 9 to 11 a.m. there’s about eight cars parked here illegally every day. I’ve estimated 18,000 visitors come to the park from [the Glendenning entrance],” Poje said. Poje said his group has surveyed close to 100 people with most opposed to the ban, though more than half said they would park at nearby alternative parking if necessary. Saanich applied the no-parking signs to the shoulders of Glendenning Road, citing fire truck access as a reason. But users have been illegally parking along the shoulders of the dead-end road anyways. What makes the Glendenning Road entrance to Mount Douglas Park stand out is its accessibility to flat trails. “Families, seniors, dog walkers and people with mobility issues all use this,” Poje said. Poje has spend hundreds of hours over the past five years removing invasive species with the Friends of Mount Douglas Society and believes with a little creativity five new parking spots could be created by expanding the current parking lot about 10 metres farther into the park. Only snowberry would need to be removed, and not trees. There are other options. One of the reasons the road was brought to Saanich’s attention was the eroded walking and equestrian trail along the east side of Glendenning. Blenkinsop Valley Community Association brought the trail’s erosion, due to years of cars parking on the shoulder, to the district’s attention. Glendennng borders the Blenkinsop and Gordon Head community associations. “Saanich’s right of way for Glendenning Road is actually 66 feet so maybe we can move the trail back and expand the shoulder to allow parking,” Poje said. “Really, we are just campaigning to bring more people

David Poje is hoping to find a solution to the parking problem at the Glendenning Road entrance to Mount Douglas Park. into the process.” Coun. Colin Plant visited the site at Poje’s request and believes there is enough demand to require a solution. “One of the things we could have done when we installed the parking ban was to install signs indicating where alternative parking is in the neighbourhood, and that will be happening [soon],” Plant said. “My preference would probably be an economical purchase of some of the private land on the

neighbouring [panhandle driveway] that we can use for some spaces. That way we can go without shrinking the park,” Plant added. “The fear I have is if we increase parking it will bring more people to that entrance of the park.” Poje will be allotted 20 minutes to speak to council under the delegation format. Council does not have to vote, though motions can be put forward. reporter@saanichnews.com

The District of Saanich is following the trend taken by many of the province’s bigger municipalities by hiring a dedicated communications manager. Over the past decade cities such as Victoria have not only created a communications director position but now have entire departments (Victoria’s recently rebranded itself as civic engagement). And yet Saanich has held out with different departments handling their own communications, until now. “I was surprised not to see one here when I arrived [in January],” said CAO Andy Laidlaw.

“We had one in [Campbell River] and they are a common role in bigger municipalities today.” If taxpayers are wondering, the position isn’t a new one. Rather, it’s a re-calibration of the recently vacated communications co-ordinator role in Saanich’s legislative services department. “Having seen the mayor’s rocky start to taking up the job and the way he held press conferences, this might help,” said Michael Prince, Lansdowne professor of social policy at the University of Victoria. “It’s a major city with major issues and it’s probably a good idea to have a communications person.” The co-ordinator handled a lot of internal communications, some of which the new position will have to do as well, Laidlaw said. One of the main reasons there hasn’t been a communications manager in Saanich to this point is former mayor Frank Leonard, who was happy acting as a front line for media calls. However, there is a need for a communications officer to serve as an interface with the public by driving Saanich’s many programs and events to its residents, Laidlaw said. “We want to improve our ability to communicate to residents the many programs that Saanich has.” One example Laidlaw points to is the added public process Saanich is trying to include with budget implementation. Having someone experienced in the media and public relations role will assist with getting the message out. “This is part of that, a first step. It will be a relatively slow growth as the [role will handle] some of the same functions, as well as updating the Saanich website.” Saanich is also hiring a replacement for the IT communications person, who will work on an updated web presence. An improved website is expected for next summer.

Election fair brings UVic students to the polls Jacob Zinn News Staff

Judging by the line of students protruding from the Elections Canada office on campus, the University of Victoria Students’ Society’s all-candidates fair was quite the success. The UVSS hosted the fair last week – in partnership with the undergraduates of political science – to encourage young people to vote in this year’s federal election. Tables from the Liberals, NDP and Green Party were set up to inform students about each party’s platforms (the Conservatives were notably absent) as well as a polling station, which saw dozens of students waiting more than an hour to vote. “From what I understand, this is definitely the most succinct and unified campaign that’s ever been run on campus in terms of getting the youth vote out,” said Kenya Rogers, UVSS director of external relations. In recent years, Rogers said poor young voter turnout and a lack of representation from politicians facilitated a Catch22 that made voter engagement among the 18 to 25 demographic stagnant. But now, students are challenging the long-held notion that young people don’t vote by, well, voting. “One of the things that’s really

Kenya Rogers, UVSS director of external relations, says students are more engaged in this federal election than previous ones and are challenging the perception that young people don’t vote. spread across the country, especially coming out of the student societies, is, ‘We’re going to shift that narrative, we’re going to make leaders think about our

issues,’” she said, “and once you do that, you start to see students getting more invested and engaged. “It’s really about empowering

students, too. We’re political agents, we’re political actors, we can do this.” Lindsay Banh, a third-year student taking a double major

in political science and history, who is also working for the NDP this election, said such recent events as the passing of Bill C-51 – anti-terrorism legislation that has been criticized over privacy concerns and restrictions to freedom of expression – have gotten young voters more engaged this time around. “It’s so much more fascinating because all three major parties are so close this year – just the anticipation of actually not knowing what’s going to happen,” she said. Likewise, Keenan Miller, a third-year history student, said having such a tight electoral race in which either of the two left-leaning parties could unseat the Conservatives has generated interest among young voters. “This is my first time voting and it’s really interesting, this election, because there are three strong parties rather than a twoparty system and a weaker third party,” said Miller. Mark Erickson, also a thirdyear political science and history student, credited a stronger push through social media and technology for getting the attention of his demographic. “There’s just a better effort and larger online presence to try to get the younger vote out than there has been in the past,” he said. “They’re finding better ways to connect with younger people.”

Cycling tracks a priority in options for Shelbourne Travis Paterson News Staff

Saanich was lauded last week for taking a big step forward in the Shelbourne Valley Action Plan, a process that has been criticized by council and residents for taking too long. Council voted to receive a two-option, abbreviated version of the plan that targets alternate mobility along the heavily travelled artery, such as cycling tracks. Two options were put forward to bring improvements to the narrow four-lane street, and are explained as a transition stage towards the greater SVAP. “This has been a roller coaster ride,” said Darrell Wick, a retired Camosun College instructor and president of the Friends of Mount Douglas Society. “I was part of the cycling committee 25 years ago

advising council on Shelbourne and now it’s a 30-year-vision plan.” The Saanich resident was one of many to speak to council and endorse the second of the current report’s two options, a $9.9 million strategy that will include cycling tracks and upgraded sidewalks. Option 1 costs $10.8 million and also introduces cycle tracks on both sides of south Shelbourne between Knight and Pear streets and north Shelbourne between Feltham and Torquay (25 per cent of Shelbourne). Both options are a quarter of the $40 million total that staff estimates it would cost to begin “immediate implementation of the SVAP ultimate concept.” Option 2, known as the hybrid option, brings cycle tracks to all of Shelbourne. It was heavily endorsed by Wick and most of the 14 speakers during the public input

period of council. In Option 2 Shelbourne has a “reduced vehicle carrying capacity” with two- and three-lane configurations while retaining four lanes at all major intersections. The report estimates narrowing Shelbourne to two lanes would divert 6,000 to 9,000 vehicles per day to parallel and collector streets, Cedar Hill and Richmond roads. Hence, the hybrid retains four lanes at intersections to promote traffic flow. Saanich manager of community planning Cameron Scott delivered the synopsis of the project to council. By adding cycling lanes, Saanich believes the number of cyclists will increase dramatically. “Shelbourne is the most important nonserviced cycling corridor in Saanich,” said Coun. Vic Derman. “No other route on that side of Saanich approximates those things.

I cycle it because I have to to get where I want to go, but it’s not my favourite.” Derman pointed back to when the Galloping Goose and Lochside trails were completed and the cyclists “showed up.” “I don’t have a tool to measure it but I suspect that kind of latent demand for Shelbourne exists. We have huge turnouts, often families, every year at the Saanich Cycling Festival [on Shelbourne].”  Shelbourne’s challenges are well documented. It’s between 20 and 23 metres wide between North Dairy and McKenzie, which is far too skinny an artery for the amount of traffic it’s moving.  Expanding it has proved difficult, leading to discussions over expropriation of right-of-ways, a tactic Saanich refuses to consider to this point.

Friday’s sighting of a cougar at the Camosun College Lansdowne campus indicates there is still a cougar in the neighbourhood bordering Uplands. The animal was seen at about 1:10 a.m. by a member of Camosun security in the north parking lot of the campus, close to Foul Bay Road. The cougar casually walked away into a treed area while it was being observed, according to Saanich Police. No further sightings were reported in the following hours. The cougar may be new to the area or the same one responsible for multiple sightings in Oak Bay this summer. Either way, the area remains on cougar alert despite the Oct. 5 capture of a cougar in a residential portion of James Bay. It was speculated but not confirmed that the James Bay capture was the same animal seen in Uplands and Oak Bay. “The animal in question appeared

healthy and had no obvious injuries” said Sgt. Steve Eassie with Saanich Police, adding it’s important to note the animal did not show signs of aggression or predatory behaviour and was likely wandering in search of food. “While observing these animals in urban areas is somewhat rare, such was the case in James Bay during daylight hours, it would not be uncommon for these animals to be present in large green spaces, especially in the evening hours.” Cougar sightings are not uncommon in Saanich though they happen with more regularity north of Mount Douglas and Royal Oak. With the alert, owners of small pets are reminded that cougars generally move around in the evening hours and officials suggest keeping animals inside throughout the evenings. Small children should be accompanied when walking in these areas.

Ideally staff would like to bump the width of the street to between 28 and 30 metres wide. Among the problems are more than 300 trees to work around (and some to take down), some of which are not in ideal locations, and 90 per cent of which are in good condition. There’s also 150 driveways as well as utility poles, all adding to the costs for the

design of cycle tracks. “I think staff should be commended for bringing this along,” said Coun. Leif Wergeland. Saanich will move forward on the interim SVAP mobility plan with another stage of public consultation. The final result will likely be a hybrid of both options, said Coun. Judy Brownoff.

Parking ban limiting recreational access Saanich is blessed with an abundance of parks and greenspace for its residents to enjoy. But sometimes just getting there can be an adventure in itself. At least that’s the view of a number of Mount Douglas area residents who will be staging rallies over the coming days to protest the parking ban on Glendenning Road near Mount Douglas Park. The issue first surfaced this summer when the District of Saanich installed no-parking signs along the first 150 metres of Glendenning Road from the southwest corner of Mount Douglas Park. “From 9 to 11 a.m. there’s about eight cars parked here illegally every day, I’ve estimated 18,000 visitors come to the park from [the Glendenning entrance],” said David Poje, one of the organizers of the rallies. Judging from the letters to the editors found on the pages of this newspaper over the past few months, it’s obvious the parking ban does not sit well with a host of Saanich residents, who have voiced objection to the ban for a variety of reasons. But opposition is far from unanimous. Earlier this summer residents in the area attached leaflets to cars parked in the area, advising them of the ban and expressing concern about issues such as access for emergency vehicles. While Poje is scheduled to bring the issue before council on Oct. 26, he has already caught the attention of at least one Saanich councillor. Colin Plant has visited the site and said one potential solution is to install signs indicating where alternate parking is located. He suggested purchasing a small portion of nearby private land that could be used for parking. “The fear I have is if we increase parking it will bring more people to that entrance of the park,” Plant. Plant’s proposal seems like a good compromise. And if the additional parking brings more users to the area, improved park access that’s popular with the public doesn’t seem to be the worst problem a municipality can have. What do you think?

Practices Code,” which attempted to micromanage every detail of a timber licence, right down to inspecting for litter left at a logging site. In came “results-based” forest management, where licence holders had to produce a plan showing stream protection and other values. The Forest Practices Board has found these plans often aren’t good for much, although results are generally good when they follow up with on-the-ground audits of actual timber harvest areas. The investigation found that many of the plans cover “vast and overlapping areas of the province, and were written using legal language that makes them very difficult for public understanding or review.” Little has changed since a similar finding in 2006. During that time, the Forests Ministry was turned into Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, with greatly increased responsibility over wildlife, mining, gas drilling and so on. Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald, who traveled the province as NDP forests critic in recent years, says the problem now is there just aren’t enough people on the ground to assess what’s going on in our huge expanse of Crown land. Meanwhile the city media covers professional protesters issuing demands about the Walbran Valley. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

LETTERS Too far to go to vote For the last several elections, federal, provincial and municipal, we have been able to walk to our polling station. This time, it is not possible. We could not walk to our designated polling station, it is just too far. Before we always voted several blocks away at out local elementary school. We live south of Harriet and Burnside and we have always voted at Tillicum school or at Silver Threads, both of which are within walking distance. This time, we have to go out West Burnside to Interurban Road to Colquitz junior secondary. That’s way on the other side of the Island Highway and there are no sidewalks for much of the route since we live in Saanich. Why are there not more polling stations in our riding that are within walking distance for voters? Is this some devious plan to reduce voter turnout even more? Bill Williamson Saanich

Parking ban raises questions Re: Parking Ban on Glendenning. Ever since her birth, whenever my granddaughter from out of town would visit, we would drive down Glendenning Road, park the car and go for a wonderful walk in Mount Douglas Park. That part of the park is just the right terrain for a wee one. She is five years old now and I can imagine the next time she comes to visit and we go for our usual hike in the woods. I will be driving past Glendenning Road and she will be proclaiming that I missed the turn. I will have to explain to her that there are only five spots left and we aren’t allowed to park anywhere else on the street anymore. So we will drive through many residential blocks and park on another residential street to enter the park.

She will then query, “Why can we park on this street and not on the other street?” Kids ask the darndest questions. Why, Saanich, why? Merlayna Snyder Saanich

NDP also oppose pipelines Green Party leader Elizabeth May has stated repeatedly that her party is the only one that will stand up against tankers and pipelines to defend our coast. I would like to enter into evidence two facts which contradict this messaging. In March of this year, Kennedy Stewart, an NDP MP from Burnaby, presented a petition with over 3,000 signatures, his most-signed petitition ever, calling on the government to prevent the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. Also in the spring of this year, Nathan Cullen, an NDP MP representing the northern BC riding of Skeena-Bulkley Valley, introduced “An Act to Defend the Pacific Northwest,” which would have banned supertankers on the West Coast, reformed the NEB to increase consultation with First Nations and communities, and ensure that value-added job impacts were assessed as part of any energy project review. This legislation was also accompanied by an extensive tour of the MP throughout British Columbia, engaging citizens on the issue and in the hope of bringing Conservative MPs on board with the bill. Unfortunately, this act was defeated, being voted down by the Conservatives 141 to 120, including the 21 Conservative MPs from B.C. I appreciate Ms. May and her party’s opposition to pipelines and increased tanker traffic, and would like to hear more about their plans in this respect, but they cannot claim that there is no other party standing up on these issues, as the record clearly shows otherwise.

Conconi Family Matching Donations to BC Cancer Foundation up to $1 Million Supporting a Monumental Leap in Cancer Treatment B.C.’s Conconi family is matching gifts made to the BC Cancer Foundation up to $1 million in support of an innovative new cancer treatment for B.C. patients. Robert Conconi believes he owes his life to cancer research and the hard working scientists and clinicians at the BC Cancer Agency after successful cancer treatments years ago. It was his eldest son Alex who drew the family’s attention to immunotherapy, an emerging area that’s been hailed as the most promising advancement in cancer care since chemotherapy.

The approach is to enhance the body’s natural potential to eliminate cancer in much the same way it wards off the common cold or flu. “We believe immunotherapy is the most promising and highly personalized new cancer treatment in development,” said Alex Conconi of the family’s commitment to match donations to the BC Cancer Foundation dollar-for-dollar up to an incredible $1 million. A specific form of immunotherapy—Adoptive T cell Therapy—has been in development at the BC

ical trials, which will entail collecting, activating and expanding a patient’s own tumour-reactive T cells and infusing massive quantities of them back into the patient’s bloodstream. Dr. Nelson explained: “Each patient involved in the Agency’s immunotherapy clinical trial will have a custom treatment developed using T cells from their own body. The end goal of T cell therapy is to launch a massive attack that destroys every remaining cancer cell in the patient’s body.” The clinical trials rely on significant philanthropic funds to support the de-

velopment of each custom T cell therapy. Over 25,000 British Columbians will be diagnosed with cancer this year, and many individuals will face advanced or recurrent disease for which immunotherapy could one day provide a new treatment option. Dr. Anna Tinker, medical oncologist at the BC Cancer Agency will be running the Adoptive T Cell Therapy clinical trial. She said, “The hope for all of us is to be able to offer highly effective treatments to help people live better and longer.”

CANADA VOTES!

Candidates outline Canada’s role for refugees The Saanich News asked the candidates in Saanich-Gulf Islands the question: What should Canada’s role be in dealing with international refugees?

Elizabeth May – Green Party The current system for bringing refugees into Canada is wholly inadequate to deal with the worst migrant crisis since the Second World War. Greens believe that special measures, like temporary resident permits, should be utilized to meet the scale of this crisis, and that we must work together to fix our broken refugee process. Recent changes have unconstitutionally terminated health benefits for refugees, detained record numbers of refugees and their children in prison, arbitrarily for “irregular arrival” by boat, or sometimes for years without charge. The Green Party will overhaul Canada’s refugee protection system. We will end the shocking practice of detaining refugees, restore funding for refugee health care, and commit to taking in tens of thousands more refugees. Canada should immediately increase the number of Syrian refugees welcomed to Canada to 25,000, while committing to bring in 40,000 over the next five years, conditional on security clearance. We will also strengthen human rights protections for prospective immigrants and repeal recent changes that encourage rapid deportation, to restore Canada to a safe and inclusive society for new Canadians.

Tim Kane – Liberal Like other Canadians, I have been shocked and disappointed by the Harper Conservative government’s lack of compassion for families fleeing Syria. Canada was once known around the

world for our civility, our integrity and for our generosity. Individual Canadians and many groups and associations are responding to the crisis and it is deeply shameful that our federal government is resisting the international call to action. I am proud that Justin Trudeau has committed to accept 25,000 refugees from Syria through immediate and direct government sponsorship. Certainly we must be sure that the people who arrive to build new lives here do not pose

risks to our security, but the procedures and protocols exist. All it takes to protect our security while providing a constructive solution to this humanitarian crisis is political will.

Alicia Cormier – NDP Canada should be a force for peace and development. The human tragedy unfolding in Syria is horrifying and unacceptable. Lives are hanging in the balance, our focus must now be on saving lives and Canada must act, now. The NDP will

work to: Get 10,000 governmentsponsored refugees out of harm’s way and on the way to Canada by the end of this year through appointing a Syrian refugee co-ordinator, pulling resources from various departments including Foreign Affairs, Citizenship and Immigration and other departments; Increase presence of Canada’s diplomatic and immigration officials in the region to accelerate processing of refugees; Work with Turkey and other affected countries to remove bureaucratic obstacles to resettlement and

end Canada’s policy of discrimination, to treat all refugees equally. We will also fast-track private sponsorship, with no cap, to bring as many people as possible to Canada and increase Canada’s contributions to humanitarian assistance agencies, including the UNHCR, based on the needs on the ground, and help co-ordinate the response of the international community to the Syrian refugee crisis.

Robert Boyd – Conservative Our Conservative government is

following a balanced, compassionate approach while safeguarding Canadians’ security. The prime minister has stated the crisis must be addressed at all three levels: confronting ISIS militarily, providing humanitarian aid, and through refugee resettlement. Canada has also contributed more than three-quarters of a billion dollars to humanitarian relief in the region. And we announced early in the campaign our commitment to bring in additional persecuted religious and ethnic minorities.

Country Grocer takes local approach Jacob Zinn News Staff

When Lee Plank’s sister took her homemade hummus to a party in 1994, she had no idea she’d have to quit her job to make more of it full time. “It was never meant to be a business,� said Plank, who took over the business in 1998. “A person there owned a small restaurant, a deli, and the people at the party ended up liking it and they wanted to sell it at their stores.� Over the last 21 years, Holy Homous has gone from being stocked at one or two stores to being a recognized brand on Vancouver Island. Now the company is getting some more recognition, thanks to Country Grocer’s partnership with Localize, a program that highlights local foods in grocery stores. Holy Homous is among 111 food producers to have Localize stickers on their products at six Island Country Grocer locations, including Royal Oak. The red labels feature a quickresponse (QR) code that allows customers with smartphones to learn more about where their food was made, grown or raised. The labels also make it easier to identify and support local businesses, with

SAANICH SAANICH NEWS NEWS -- Wednesday, Wednesday, October October 14, 14, 2015 2015 

Cyclists a common sight on campus Walk-In Denture Clinic UVic marks Sustainability Week Oct. 13-16 For Kilian Loftis, cycling is a way of life. His father put him on a bike at age two and now the fourthyear UVic engineering student cycles 500 kilometres a week during summer and two-wheels his way to campus, home and around the city yearround. “I’ve never owned a car and don’t see any reason why I would,” said Loftis, president of the UVic Cycling Club and among the more than 2,000 who regularly cycle to campus. “It’s part of my lifestyle, I stay in shape and cycling is a lot of fun. It’s one less car on the road and every little bit helps.” Loftis notes his carbon footprint is further reduced, as manufacturing a bicycle creates fewer carbon emissions than assembling a car. Nearly 8,000 members of UVic’s campus community use public transit, pedal power and shoe leather in getting to and from campus every day. UVic supports sustainable transportation through dedicated bike paths, the student UPASS transit program, a subsidized employee bus pass option, and amenities and infrastructure for cyclists. Cycling, transportation options and reducing individuals’ carbon footprint are key themes of UVic’s second annual Sustainability Week, Oct. 13-16.

“At UVic, sustainability is our commitment to future generations,” said Kristi Simpson, associate vicepresident of financial planning and operations. “Our vision builds on the collective action of the university community through planning, shared learning, grassroots activities and institutional leadership.” Sustainability Week promotes sustainable

lifestyles and aims at getting people out of their cars to reduce carbon emissions, vehicle traffic on campus and parking demand. A host of activities include free bike tune-ups, a bike maintenance workshop, a mural art project at the Campus Bike Centre and a birthday celebration – with cake – to mark the centre’s second anniversary. UVic’s commitment to sustainability is

also expressed in dynamic learning. UVic integrates sustainability into more than 300 courses and experiential learning programs among faculties, departments and schools. Beyond the classroom, there are field schools addressing such issues as environmental law, sustainable social and business practices, and human dimensions of climate change.

When growing garlic the devil is in the details The myth may be Romanian in origin, but in the context of our globalized food system, there’s still some truth in it. The garlic you may be eating is likely to have been grown in China, fumigated with methyl bromide (a biotoxin), bleached white, and treated with growth Christin Geall inhibitors. The devil Cultivated really can be in the details. Now is the time to plant garlic in Victoria and I guarantee it will be one of the most rewarding plants you’ve grown. Break a bulb apart, plant one clove, wait nine months, and each clove multiplies itself into a bulb. I have managed to grow enough garlic to be self-sustaining in a raised 5x14-foot bed, planting the cloves closely, about eight inches apart. (At approximately seven cloves per bulb, I might plant only 20 bulbs worth of cloves, to yield 140 bulbs the next summer). I don’t solely plant my own ‘seed’ cloves from year to year, but also refresh my stock by ordering from Saltspring Seed Garlic, the best local provider I’ve found: send a cheque and healthy bulbs arrive by post within a week. I grow both softneck (the kind you can braid) and hardneck, which produce oily large fistsized bulbs. The growing

Now is the time to plant garlic. Varieties pictured here: red Russian, Persian star and Portuguese softnecks. requirements are the same for both types: decent drainage, soil augmented with compost, a touch of lime, a sprinkle of organic fertilizer, and at the very least a half-day of sun. That’s it: You plant in the fall and harvest the next July, truly not giving the plants much thought. In our region, the red Russian varieties do very well: the cloves are fat, easy to peel, and store well until spring (when they have tendency to sprout but are still entirely edible). Speaking of sprouting, one of the bonuses of growing your own garlic is that in June, when your stash has almost run out, the plants send up a flowering shoot, known as a scape. These can be used like cloves and

harvesting them ensures a larger bulb. Think of the scape from the plant’s perspective: it wants to reproduce, so it sends its energy into making seeds, in the form of a wonderfully sexy flower. By snipping off that single bloom, you direct the plant’s energy back into the bulb. If you don’t have time to order your bulbs, plan a trip to a farmers’ market to buy an unsprayed variety from a local producer. You may pay $5 a bulb, but you will be guaranteed a locally-adapted variety that will yield $30 of garlic next summer, curse free. lll

Travis Paterson News Staff

Mount Douglas area resident David Poje is bringing the Glendenning Road parking situation to light with rallies at Glendenning on Oct. 17 and 21 at 9 a.m. as well as a delegation to Saanich council on Oct. 26. Poje represents a group of park users who believe Saanich went too far when it installed no-parking signs along the first 150 metres of Glendenning earlier this summer. Glendenning runs north and ends with a small, five-car parking lot on the southwest corner of Mount Douglas Park. “From 9 to 11 a.m. there’s about eight cars parked here illegally every day. I’ve estimated 18,000 visitors come to the park from [the Glendenning entrance],” Poje said. Poje said his group has surveyed close to 100 people with most opposed to the ban, though more than half said they would park at nearby alternative parking if necessary. Saanich applied the no-parking signs to the shoulders of Glendenning Road, citing fire truck access as a reason. But users have been illegally parking along the shoulders of the dead-end road anyways. What makes the Glendenning Road entrance to Mount Douglas Park stand out is its accessibility to flat trails. “Families, seniors, dog walkers and people with mobility issues all use this,” Poje said. Poje has spend hundreds of hours over the past five years removing invasive species with the Friends of Mount Douglas Society and believes with a little creativity five new parking spots could be created by expanding the current parking lot about 10 metres farther into the park. Only snowberry would need to be removed, and not trees. There are other options. One of the reasons the road was brought to Saanich’s attention was the eroded walking and equestrian trail along the east side of Glendenning. Blenkinsop Valley Community Association brought the trail’s erosion, due to years of cars parking on the shoulder, to the district’s attention. Glendennng borders the Blenkinsop and Gordon Head community associations. “Saanich’s right of way for Glendenning Road is actually 66 feet so maybe we can move the trail back and expand the shoulder to allow parking,” Poje said. “Really, we are just campaigning to bring more people

Travis Paterson/News Staff

David Poje is hoping to find a solution to the parking problem at the Glendenning Road entrance to Mount Douglas Park. into the process.” Coun. Colin Plant visited the site at Poje’s request and believes there is enough demand to require a solution. “One of the things we could have done when we installed the parking ban was to install signs indicating where alternative parking is in the neighbourhood, and that will be happening [soon],” Plant said. “My preference would probably be an economical purchase of some of the private land on the

neighbouring [panhandle driveway] that we can use for some spaces. That way we can go without shrinking the park,” Plant added. “The fear I have is if we increase parking it will bring more people to that entrance of the park.” Poje will be allotted 20 minutes to speak to council under the delegation format. Council does not have to vote, though motions can be put forward. reporter@saanichnews.com
