Elk Falls provided quite a show on Tuesday

No replacement for sick engineer cancels last sailings of day Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Six sailings between Campbell River and Quadra Island were cancelled Monday night as BC Ferries was unable to fill a key staffing position onboard the Powell River Queen. Darin Guenette, manager of public affairs for BC Ferries, confirmed that the last three round trips of the night had to be cancelled, starting with the 7 p.m. sailing leaving Quadra Island. “At that point, one of our engineers on board, a licensed, certified position, was unable to continue due to illness and we couldn’t get a replacement,” Guenette said. Area C Director Jim Abram said it was the second time within about a month that sailings were cancelled due to a staffing shortage. He said the incident on Monday left people who live on Quadra but work in Campbell River stranded and shoppers with cars full of groceries had to leave their food overnight. Abram said while BC Ferries did provide a water taxi, that didn’t help with the vehicles. “There’s no excuse for this to happen, it’s completely inexcusable on the operations side,” Abram said. “We have, on Quadra Island, at least four recently retired skippers that all keep their certification current and they pay every year to maintain the ability to run the ferry for emergency purposes.”

But Guenette said BC Ferries needed an engineer with an engineer’s certificate – a Transport Canada requirement under BC Ferries’ crewing regulations. “His position is called a third engineer,” said Guenette. “With these positions you have to have the same licensing.” Guenette said it was the same situation in early December – an engineer became ill and sailings had to be cancelled. “Obviously it’s not ideal, but illness happens,” Guenette said. “We do our best to find the nearest employee to fill in. It’s unfortunate, certainly, we never want any customers to be inconvenienced when we can’t sail. We always try to have the right people on our vessels.” Abram said some of the staffing challenges could be solved if BC Ferries committed to more local hires. “They’re hiring more and more people from off Island and it becomes limiting to people working, especially when the ferry leaves from (the Quadra) side,” Abram said. “The situation on Quadra Island is there are more than enough people working, and they’re ticketed to work on the ferry, and they’re not being hired.” Abram said the Ferry Advisory Committee for the Campbell River/ Quadra/Cortes run will get a chance to air its grievances when it meets with BC Ferries’ general manager of operations for the northern routes on Feb. 1.

Water thunders over Elk Falls on Tuesday after BC Hydro opened the floodgates and allowed 10 times the normal flow through the John Hart Dam. See a video of the falls at www.campbellrivermirror.com.

ven the weather couldn’t keep away the hundreds of people who made their way up to Elk Falls on Tuesday. They made the trip to see our natural wonder flowing at 10 times its normal volume as BC Hydro diverted flow from its penstocks at the John Hart Dam and sent them down the canyon instead. The flow was increased in order to deal with grass and wood debris that collects behind the dam. This debris needs to be removed a few times per year, as it restricts the water flow into the penstocks. Only once per year, however, do they need to reduce flows into the penstocks in order to do the work, diverting the water down the canyon, and producing the spectacular show at the falls. The public will only get two more chances to see the falls at this kind of velocity. After the completion of the new generating station, there will no longer be a need to divert the flow to clean the water intake because of the way the new generating station works, so next year and 2018 will be public’s last two chances to see this kind of power flowing over Elk Falls. Head over to campbellrivermirror.com for a video of the falls on Tuesday.

In a story published in the Jan. 13 Campbell River Mirror, a statement by the Health Employees Union appeared to be attributed to New Horizons Director of Care Sandra Murphy. The article, about a letter to city council that Murphy wrote, quoted the passage “…we have subjected our original calculations to closer review and believe that we were missing the key information that may have led to errors in those calculations” and that the union is “less clear as to how the staffing changes will impact the LPN (Licenses Practical Nurses) and RN (Registered Nurses) staffing at New Horizons.” Murphy was quoting the HEU as having made that statement and the choice of wording in the article did not make that clear and we apologize for that.

Quadra resident ordered to connect to sewer system KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Strathcona Regional District has ordered a Quadra Islander to connect his property to a community sewer system despite the owner’s claim that he can’t afford it. The owners of a property and hostel on Green Road have, for several years, resisted hooking up to the sewer line installed by the regional district. Last week, the regional district board had enough and directed staff to issue an Order to Connect which requires the owner to connect his property to the Quathiaski Cove sewer system on or before March 31 or the regional district may undertake the work at the owner’s expense. Quadra Director Jim Abram said at last week’s Wednesday board meeting that the order to connect is a legal matter. “It’s a matter of staff dealing with the law. There isn’t, in my opinion, any room to try and convince us politically that we should break the law,” Abram said. “The law is there. Action should happen and it hasn’t happened. They’ve had letter after letter that’s gone ignored or just not happened. This is a property that should have been connected years ago and it hasn’t been.” The regional district sent letters to the property on on March 14, 2014 and June 3, 2015 asking the property owner to take measures to hook up his property but no application was submitted to the regional district for a sewer connection. Gordon Humphreys, owner of the property, wrote in a letter to the regional district that he has already had to pay $7,000 to pave a road being destroyed by runoff after the discharge line was first installed. “We would certainly be in agreement with our hook up but we cannot afford to spend thousands of dollars when there is nothing wrong with the system we have,” Humphreys wrote. “This system has already cost us $7,000 and we

are not even close to being hooked up. It would have been prudent to hook us up at the time as everyone else, while all the equipment was there; digging up the whole of Q Cove, and through the middle of our property. Yet no one made any move to get this to happen.” “We would like to be on the system but we are unable to effectively do that and since our septic system is working well with little maintenance, we can’t justify the hook up as we have no idea of cost and who will be responsible for this,” he said. Patti Wells, operations engineer for the regional district, and Ralda Hansen, community services manager, wrote in a joint report to the board that Island Health has no record of approving that waste disposal system so the carrying capacity of the system is questionable. They wrote that it is also “worrisome” that the property has a water course bisecting the property. “Pidcock Creek bisects the western portion of the property and is, in accordance with the Sensitive Habitat Atlas 2006, designated as a wetland area,” Wells and Hansen wrote. “The existing sanitary sewer main is situated on the east side of Green Road which fronts the property. A sewer service connection installation is feasible and would require an open trench cutting across Green Road.” The board agreed with the joint report and approved the Order to Connect at the Jan. 13 board meeting. At that same meeting, Humphreys was allotted time to address the board despite a previous letter to the regional district stating he would be unable to attend that meeting. Humphreys instead suggested he could meet with regional district staff in February. But the board approved the order despite Cortes Director Noba Anderson suggesting it seemed to be “not in good faith” to approve the order when the board had received correspondence that the owner would not be in attendance.

In the early days of this new year, readers have advised me to do several things. I’ll go with one that seems relatively painless, embracing the “sunny ways” of our new federal government and seeking optimism in these fragile times. For starters, we have a building boom going on in the southwest. Here in Victoria, cranes dot the skyline as new residential-commercial projects emerge from bedrock, and hardhats are mostly on construction workers, scratched and backwards, rather than shiny and forward on politicians. Shipyards are busy, with Royal Canadian Navy work and cruise ship refits to reduce their emissions, plus work on ferries, tugboats and barges. Most of the activity is private investment, much of it in a hot housing market. Surrey has just recorded its second-highest total for building permits in history, a value of $1.46 billion nearly matching the pre-reces-

sion peak of 2007. Thousands of provincial employees get a small raise in February, based on stronger than forecast economic growth in 2014. He a lt h c a re costs are rising less dramatically. That should ease the crisis atmosphere at provincial and federal health ministers’ negotiations over the funding formula, taking place this week in Vancouver. Health Minister Terry Lake announced last week that the province is increasing funding for a promising program in cancer research, using genetic analysis to improve targeting for drugs to treat the hundreds of different cancers diagnosed in B.C. patients each year.

The forest industry is being helped by the low Canadian dollar and a steady recovery in the U.S. economy, and tourism is expected to have another strong year as Americans take advantage of a discount on visits to B.C.

Things are going well in B.C. VIEWS

Canada’s banknotes are polymer, counterfeit-resistant, holographic and modern. And they’re hopelessly behind the times. Canadian women need to be represented on Canadian currency. It’s a notion that was put forward by a citizens’ movement in Victoria and has now been championed by Nanaimo-Ladysmith MP Sheila Malcolmson, the NDP’s critic for the status of women. The lack of women on our bills wasn’t always this concerning. Our $50 notes used to feature the Famous Five and Thérèse Casgrain, advocates for women’s voting rights. But those ladies have long since been replaced by a decidedly masculine-looking Arctic icebreaker. With the removal of the human-rights heroines, that leaves us with an anonymous clip-art medical researcher on the back of the $100 and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the $20. The problem won’t solve itself. After the Queen’s passing – long may she – the monarchy will We say: It’s only live be headed by king after right and it’s only king after king. And although we fully expect fair they appear Canada will elect female on our money prime ministers over the coming decades, it takes a long time for partisan politicians to become respected historical figures. It’s only right and it’s only fair that women appear on our money. Our country’s cabinet is 50 per cent women because it’s 2016, and other institutions should be similarly scrutinized. There are countless candidates whom we can honour on our banknotes. If worthy women don’t come to mind, then we aren’t looking hard enough. Their stories are under-represented in history texts, but of course women have always been here, building our country, our culture and our identity right alongside the men. Our polymer bills, however durable, will wear out, and we will need to print new ones, and we should always try to find ways to celebrate different segments of our society. Leaders, pioneers, artists, thinkers and difference-makers. Heroes and heroines. -Black Press

may not sound like much, but compared to Alberta’s oildependent economy, it’s pretty good. Construction of a new dam on the Peace River is expected to ramp up this year, bringing workers home from Alberta, and the federal government is planning to fast-track its promised infrastructure spending to create work across the country. Not much sun on mining stocks these days, but Energy and Mines Minister Bill Bennetts sales pitch to an investor luncheon included reference to two more mines under construction in northwest B.C., the province’s Pacific Rim trade advantage, and revenue sharing with First Nations that is attracting attention of other provinces. The Conference Board of Canada has forecast that B.C.’s economy will “lead the country by a wide margin over the near term,” with unemployment declining in 2016. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

War medals should not be for sale Sierra Club rep Letters

This past week, I went into a local antique shop, looking for some items for a friend, when I happened upon a disturbing sight. Six World War II medals, in a display case, for sale. These medals were even more unique, in that they were in their original issue boxes and showed no signs of having ever been worn. Amongst them were the France-Germany Star and the Italy Star, meaning that the owner had fought throughout the European theatre of operations. There was a history of courage and sacrifice, behind these medals, now worth $150 on a shelf. I returned to the shop, the next day and purchased all six medals, having imagined the worst. I pictured the medals being worn as jewelry on someone’s jacket, or melted down for their value in silver. Even worse, being worn by someone pretending to be a Veteran. Some have mentioned

that the medals probably meant little to the owner because they were never even worn or taken out of their box. The reason for this is likely more complex than that. I know Veterans that cannot look at their medals, as they remind

far from lurking

According to Tom Fletcher, “an employee of the B.C. branch plant of Sierra Club lurks, apparently coordinating media and protesters” regarding logging in the Walbran Valley (Avatar Sequel Bombs in Walbran, Jan 12). He’s referring to me. Far from lurking, I’m proud to be campaigning with Sierra Club BC to save some of the last significant stands of unprotected old-growth on Vancouver Island. (And, to correct but one of the many misleading or false claims in Fletcher’s piece, Sierra Club BC is entirely independent.)   Fletcher’s diatribe reveals him as Teal Jones’ willing stenographer, uncritically regurgitating the logging company’s talking points. Fletcher and Teal Jones may believe it is morally and ecologically acceptable to cut down these magnificent trees and destroy complex, delicate ecosystems. Sierra Club BC doesn’t, and

nor do the majority of British Columbians, who support concerted action to defend endangered old-growth trees, wildlife, a stable climate, clean water and clean air.   British Columbians know that these things form the life-support system of our planet and support long-term prosperity and a diverse economy, including sustainable second-growth forestry for current and future generations. A growing list of independent reports from B.C.’s Auditor General, the Forest Practices Board and even a Liberal MLA highlight the need for urgent action to save our forests.  It’s long past time for the provincial government to reverse the damage done when it gutted the rules governing logging. Fourteen years of trusting corporate interests to manage our forests with little or no oversight has got to stop. Mark Worthing Sierra Club BC

and story that deserves the respect, living or dead. If you have medals of a friend or family member who has passed and are unsure what to do with them, seek out your local Legion or museum and find a suitable place for them to reside. Their unseen value far outweighs any monetary amount that can be acquired for them. I am unsure, right now, where these particular medals will end up. I may donate them to our Legion or museum. I may send them to one of the many Military Museums, to be displayed for all to see. I may hold on to them, to carry with me on Remembrance Day and show children in schools, telling the story of our Nation at War. Wherever they end up, I know that they will be treated with reverence and respect appropriate for the person and events they represent, with the pride of a Nation.

Campbell River wrestling has another successful day of competition Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Campbell River Invite in the Carihi Gym. In the team results, the Phoenix girls placed first of 10 teams in the Junior division, while the boys placed third. In the Senior division, the Timberline boys placed third, the Carihi Girls placed fourth, and the Carihi boys placed fourth. It was a fun day of wrestling that saw Campbell River crown multiple champions. From Carihi, Alex Jinda, Ali McPhee, and Ering Geddes won gold medals, as did Conlan Foy from Timberline. Also winning were, from Phoenix, Cash Simon, Hailey Ricard, and Quin Golobar, as well as Southgate’s lone entry, Riory Young. An exciting culmination at the end of the tournament featured three challenge matches, seeing champions of individual weight classes wrestle to determine the Most Outstanding Wrestler of the Tournament. Conlan Foy stepped up to wrestle 2015 Cadet National silver medalist Aaron Badovinic of ADSS (Port Alberni). Badovinic (70 kg) won the weight class above Foy (66kg) at this tournament. In front of everyone at the tournament, in the last match of the day, Foy defeated the larger Badovinic 10-0, showing why he is considered one of the best wrestlers in the province. For the win, Foy won a Most Outstanding Wrestler Championship Belt. Coach Jason Kerluck reflected thoughtfully on the day, “We feel that we run one of the best tournaments of the year here. I am very proud that we had such a strong showing from both our Junior and Senior athletes. Seeing Conlan step up and pick apart the bigger wrestler was a treat to watch. He really earned that belt today.” The teams have three tournament remaining before the Island Championships on Saltspring Island. “We are looking forward to having a strong showing at Islands, and carrying that momentum through to the Provincial Championships,” said Carihi coach Scott McKenzie.

#29 Team: Blue Bombers It was an easy choice to pick the player of the week. One of our goalies, Coen (#29) had his best game of the year last weekend when the team travelled to Nanaimo. The Bomber won the game 7-3. Coen channelled his play from his idol Ken Dryden and kept the team alive during the first period by making multiple key saves while the team was up against a fast skating Nanaimo squad. The team responded with a great effort and clinched the win for Coen. Great job and keep up the hard work.

Gear Up for Fun this Winter

have had success using a fly rod and getting out a little deeper and throwing out a buck tail fly and it worked, as the fly resembles baitfish like a herring needlefish or even squid.

In the Campbell River and Courtenay area, fishing pressure is down to a minimal at key locations that are normally fished in January. With weather permitting, the people getting out are fishing off Willow Point up to the Hump and Lighthouse. Catch reports are varied from fair to good for springs and the area south of Courtenay may be fishing better if you can find the hotspot. Hornby Island has been good in the past few weeks with some unidentified locations fishing very good. Bates Beach and Kitty Coleman will be coming on. During the summer months, fishing guide Matt Conelley from Courtenay guides up north and his boat will be used on the West Coast. During the winter he will look at spots that were once fished commercially and he has had great fishing this month for winter springs. Catch size can be from 9-15 pounds and found in areas not fished on a regular basis. In Campbell River, most boats will be

January catch of winter Springs in the Courtenay area for Matt Conelley. out of the water but, at times, when the weather window opens, there are a number of locals that will launch their boat at the Big Rock area and head out for a few hours. Some will take out light tackle and head to the Hump and fish for grey cod and – if you can anchor at some kelp – greenling cod. The nice thing about jigging for cod this time of year is that the dogfish are gone and grey cod have been hitting jigs around the Hump. Some anglers have been using Buzz Bomb lures or Twister Tails casting from a boat. Certain times of the year I

For any type of cod always check the regulations for closures in the area. In the past year, I noticed that there are more people fishing for cod in the Campbell River area because of its good eating quality with mild flavour and flaky texture. In the past number of months, I have received a number of emails from people moving to Campbell River from Alberta and Saskatchewan who have fished for walleye and perch but will now fish for salmon or trout. In northern Alberta, there are a number of lakes that offer great trout fishing and in the Campbell River area the lakes will see some new faces when the weather warms and there will more people out casting a fly or lure in the river. I received five inquiries to my introductory to fly tying basics and will be in touch with those who called or emailed me their name and telephone number.

Storm: Costly night for the Buccaneers after losing forward Braeden Cyra From Pg. 17

why we came out on top.” It was a costly night for the team on Thursday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. Within a minute of scoring what would be the game winning goal, at 3:19 of the first period, Braeden Cyra was knocked out of the game. While gathering the puck behind his own net he received a jolting hit from Buccaneer forward, Patrick Poets. The twenty year old received medical attention, including stitches, and will be out of the Campbell River line-up for an undetermined period of time. Following the hit, the game took on a nasty tone with over 210 penalty minutes and numerous ejections. Keenan Scardina continued his scoring ways picking up a nice goal early in the third period. After receiving a pass from Carter Hikichi behind the oppo-

sition net, Scardina weaved his way to the faceoff circle and fired a shot over the shoulder of goalie Alex Orth. Josh Coblenz would finish the night’s scoring midway through the frame, on the power play, off a Colin Blake rebound. The newest Storm player, Jake Mullen, made his debut on the road in Nanaimo and acquitted himself well turning aside 23 shots and receiving first star honours for his effort. On Friday night, the Storm edged the visiting Kerry Park Islanders on a late goal from Colpron. It was his third goal of the night and tied him for second with Karl Hagg (2009 season) on the team’s all-time goal scoring leaderboard at 108. Jason Jaques (2004 season) leads all with 128 goals in his four seasons with Campbell River. Kerry Park came back twice from two goal deficits and thanks

to the incredible goaltending of Chase Anderson were in a position to force overtime. Colpron’s winner came with just 29 seconds left in regulation and launched the 972 fans out of their seats. On a turnover in the neutral zone, Alex Rosolowsky pushed the puck into the Islanders zone where the captain took over in typical Colpron fashion. Head Coach, Lee Stone, talked about his star player after the game, “He makes me looks good. It’s pretty nice when you can put out a guy like that, he makes a one handed toe-drag and goes short side shelf.” For Colpron, it was his 44th goal of the season, tops in the league. Christian Brandt also had a strong night picking up two goals, his twelfth and thirteenth. Next action for the Storm is a Friday home game against the Westshore Wolves.

Fostering the future of forestry Mike Davies Campbell RiveR miRRoR

T

he only thing missing was the sawdust. Carihi’s Multi-Purpose Room was full of student projects, industry professionals looking for prospective talent and informational displays touting the benefits of forestry Tuesday – including some of the equipment used in the trade. It was all part of the school’s annual Forestry Day. Jason Kerluck, who teaches the school’s forestry program, was directing traffic around the room, touting his program to prospective students and directing current students to various booths and industry representatives who circulated, as well. “The average age of a forestry worker on the coast is about 55,” Kerluck told the crowd

of interested students assembled to hear one of his presentations, “and over the next decade, a lot of those workers are going to be retiring, and the industry will be needing to replace those jobs.” In fact, Kerluck says, the industry needs to be training 96 logging machine operators, 95 logging truck drivers, 86 entry-level logging workers, 85 hand fallers, 78 heavy equipment operators and 37 heavy duty mechanics every year, according to research provided by Western Forest Products, just to keep up with the current demand. And Carihi’s forestry program is one of only five high school forestry programs in the province, Kerluck says, which makes it difficult to keep up with the industry’s hiring needs. Part of the reason

there are so few programs is the lack of qualified instructors who want to teach them. “I started out logging, and then went to school in forestry, and then did some engineering in forestry, and then went back to school to become a teacher,” Kerluck says, which obviously isn’t a path many high school teachers take. “There are very few teachers who are like me – with a forestry background. For someone to take this on, they need to have that piece and be passionate about it.” It’s also a lot of work. “I have to create the curriculum, I have to get my own funding, I have to advertise and promote. It’s a lot of extra work, but it’s very rewarding.” Jeff Lontayao, Carihi’s career facilitator, says they’re fortunate to have been given the opportunity to have a program like Kerluck’s. “The school district and the school itself – and I know (Timberline) does this, too – have been really open to letting teachers teach their passion, to include the kids in your passion. It’s cool, because we’ve developed a ton of cool programs. It’s been fantastic.” One of the district’s trustees, Ted Foster, was on hand to see the projects and take in the day, and echoed those sentiments. “This is really excel-

lent,” Foster says, looking around the room at the bustle of activity. “It’s a great opportunity for these kids to see what there is in terms of real work available and how that work really happens, and gives them a sense of whether it’s something they want to do. “We really strive to give as many opportunities like this as we can to the kids when we have someone like (Kerluck), who has a passion and expertise in a subject and wants to pass it on.” Lontayao says programs like Carihi’s forestry offerings add another, invaluable dimension to the education system that shouldn’t be overlooked. “These kids, when they put on that vest, they feel like they’re somebody – like they have a purpose,” he says, beaming. “It’s a huge confidence builder for them to have a direction,” he says, recounting the story of his own son, who took Carihi’s carpentry program. “When he put on that uniform, his chest puffed out, and his eyes lit up,” he says. “And that’s what this kind of thing does for these kids.” That’s not all it does. Three bursaries of $500 were also given out at Forestry day for “Top Project,” “Top Student,” and “Top Worker,” meaning a few exceptional students were just

given yet another leg up if they decide they want to get into that industry. But Kerluck thinks the courses hold value even for students who decide forestry isn’t really for them. “When they leave,

regardless of whether they go into a career in it – some do and some don’t – they’ll have a better understanding of forestry and how it’s managed in the province, and at least be able to identify the trees

around their campground when they go camping – and there’s value in that.” For more information about the program, contact Kerluck by email at jason.kerluck@sd72. bc.ca

Do you push the big man in front of the runaway trolley? Timberline adds Philosophy 12 to next year’s course offerings Mike Davies Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Y

ou are operating a trolley. The trolley is rolling down a track, but your brakes have given out and there are five workers on the track ahead. You are going to kill them all. They can’t hear you coming due to the noise from their machinery. You have an out, though. There’s a way to switch tracks where there is only one worker who will be killed by the runaway trolley. Do you switch tracks? Most people will say, “Of course you switch tracks and kill fewer people! What kind of question is that?” Okay, so how about this one: There’s a runaway trolley. This time you’re not operating it, but watching the scenario take place. Again, it’s headed for those same five workers and will

surely kill them. But there’s a very large man leaning over in front of you, watching the same thing you are. One little nudge would push him onto the tracks in front of the trolley, which will certainly kill him, but he’s big enough to stop it from killing the workers. Do you push him? Most people, says Timberline Secondary teacher Tylere Couture, would not push the large man to save the five workers. “What’s the difference?” Couture rhetorically asked the crowd at a School District 72 Board of Trustees meeting last week. You might be asking yourself a different question right now. Maybe something like, “Why are they talking about killing people with trains at a School Board meeting?” Well, Couture was asking the board to approve a Philosophy

12 course he developed for implementation next year. “Philosophy is a passion of mine, and obviously I’d like to teach my passions,” Couture told the board. “We ask (our students) in every course to think critically – we ask them to apply critical thinking skills everywhere – but we don’t actually have the opportunity to teach them those critical thinking skills. I think this course provides an opportunity to fill that gap.” What’s the right thing to do? What is “truth?” And what did the greatest thinkers throughout history think about these fundamental or foundational questions that govern our lives and our society? In the above scenario, where you’re driving the trolley, Couture says the foundational principal is an ethical framework called utilitarianism.

“You’re trying to do the most good for the most people, so you obviously switch tracks. It sounds simple and obvious,” Couture summarized. But if you’re using that principle – doing the most good for the most people – why wouldn’t you also push the big man onto the track to save the five workers? That’s clearly the choice to be made using that foundational ideal. But the world is a complicated place, and ethics and fundamental theories of thought are no different. There are no right answers in philosophy, just more questions, which Couture says is the whole point. Whatever answer you come up with to answer the question “what is the right thing to do?” there’s another scenario that, “throws a wrench into what you thought

Plan for new curriculum training has begun Mike Davies Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Those involved with planning the implementation of the new provincial curriculum within School District 72 have begun meeting and planning in advance of the upcoming three “Curriculum Implementation Days.” Assistant Superintendent Nevenka Fair told the with the Board of Education at last week’s public meeting that the curriculum implementation team had met to begin planning for the full day training session on Feb. 22 and the

two half-day sessions on March 11 and April 22. The purpose of the initial meeting was, “just to talk about what our hopes would be and some priorities for year one of implementation,” Fair said, adding that the people involved in the discussions, “were pretty well on the same page.” “Despite all the difficulties and challenges in terms of financial stuff in education right now, where curriculum and information is going is certainly exciting,” Fair told the board. The curriculum implementation team consists of several teach-

ers, administrators, the Campbell River District Teachers’ Association president, educational members of the district’s senior management team, the district’s Pro-D coordinator, and some instructional support teachers, who will now work to determine the structure and framework for the three implementation days. More information about the implementation schedule, as well as changes in the bussing schedules on the two half-days that children will not be in their classrooms, can be found at sd72.bc.ca

was the right decision,” Couture said. “Part of the goal of the course is to play a small part in creating more self-aware citizens, but to install a little epistemic humility, as well.” “It’s reminding me of my own time studying philosophy at university,” said board chair Susan Wilson during the discussion about approving the course. “It was such a mindopening experience, and I really think it’s fantastic that you’re offering it to students at the high school level. It’s something that I wish everybody could experience – to have that opportunity to open your mind to different ways of thinking.” The course was unanimously approved by the board and will be offered during the 201617 school year at Timberline as an academic elective.

River NDP MP Rachel Blaney says she has heard from multiple constituents who have

DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN Pest Management Plan: BC Hydro Power Line Corridors 2016-2021

5x11.71 BC Hydro

The use of pesticides is intended within the area to which the Pest Management Plan (PMP) applies. The purpose of the proposed PMP is to control vegetation under, above and near BC Hydro’s power lines in order to maintain the safe and reliable delivery of electricity to our customers. This plan applies to all areas of British Columbia where BC Hydro manages its transmission and distribution system and associated power line corridors, access roads and helipads. The proposed duration of the PMP is from April 2016 to April 2021. Vegetation incompatible with the operation of the power system will be controlled using: physical (manual brushing, mowing, girdling, grooming, pruning, tree removal), cultural (compatible land use), biological (release of parasitic insects to control invasive plants), and chemical (herbicide application) techniques, or any combination of these methods. The active ingredients and trade names of the herbicides proposed for use under this plan include: ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

aminocyclopyrachlor and metsulfuron-methyl – Navius or equivalent aminopyralid – Milestone or equivalent aminopyralid and metsulfuron-methyl – ClearView or equivalent aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl, and fluroxypyr – Sightline or equivalent aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl and triclopyr – Clearview Brush or equivalent Chondrostereum purpureum – Chontrol or equivalent clopyralid – Lontrel or equivalent diflufenzopyr and dicamba – Distinct, Overdrive, or equivalent glyphosate – Vantage, Vision or equivalent imazapyr – Arsenal Powerline or equivalent metsulfuron-methyl – Escort or equivalent picloram and 2,4-D – Aspect or equivalent triclopyr – Garlon products or equivalent 2,4-D – LV700 or equivalent

Adjuvant products may also be combined on occasion with an herbicide to improve its effectiveness, such as: nonylphenoxy polyethoxy ethanol – Agral 90, paraffinic oils – Gateway, octadec-9-enoic acid as methyl and ethyl esters – Hasten NT, or siloxylated polyether – Xiameter or equivalents. The proposed methods for applying herbicides include: cut surface, basal bark, backpack foliar (low pressure spray), mechanical foliar (boom, nozzle, powerhose, or wick), or injection (hack and squirt, lance or syringe) techniques. A draft copy of the proposed PMP is available at bchydro.com/pestplanforcorridors. Alternatively, it’s available in person at 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby; 1401 Kalamalka Lake Road, Vernon; 18475 128 Street, Surrey; 400 Madsen Road, Nanaimo; 3333 22 Avenue, Prince George. BC Hydro, the applicant for the proposed PMP, is located at 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby, B.C., V3N 4X8. Please contact Tom Wells, Vegetation Program Manager, at 604 516 8943 or thomas.wells@bchydro.com for more information. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the pest management plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the above address within 30 days of the publication notice.

delivery, but to this day no word on the services.” In December, MP B l a n e y m e t w it h CUPW (C anadi an Union of Postal Workers) representative Monica Judd to discuss the implementation of community mailboxes (CMBs). In Campbell River, the hardworking staff have not been given a plan and did not have the proper systems in place for the upcoming winter, according to Blaney’s release. “According to constituents, Canada Post made no attempt to remove snow around CMBs, nor did they salt the ice,” Judd said in the release. “Some locations reported the area around their boxes to be skating rinks. Crunchy frozen snow, ice, locks freezing are all new winter additions to the plethora of complaints customers already had.” Not only are these community mailboxes causing problems to the residents of Campbell River, but also to Canada Post workers who are also having difficulties accessing the mailboxes, according to the release. In her release, Blaney says the average letter carrier in Campbell River has put in 140 hours of overtime since the onset of this exercise. The forced overtime came as a result of cutting positions, but has put overwhelming demands on the workers, impacting quality of life, ability to spend time with their families and resulting in physical exhaustion. “I have heard terrible stories from constituents of all ages and abilities who have been hurt attempting to access their mailbox. This is exactly the concerns the NDP has raised in

the House in the previous Parliament” said Blaney. “The NDP will continue to pressure the Liberal government to ensure they deliver on their election promise and restore home mail delivery.” The conversion from door-to-door mail delivery to community mailboxes has been suspended since late October. “We will work collaboratively with the Government of Canada to determine the best path forward given the ongoing challenges faced by the Canadian postal system,” Canada Post said in a statement on its website. “Efforts are now underway to place the comprehensive program on hold in an orderly fashion. This involves roughly 460,000 address es across the country which are currently in the process to be converted to community mailboxes. As a result, all conversions planned for November and December 2015 and those announced for 2016 will be placed on hold.” In December, Campbell River council received a letter from Canada Post stating that delivery to the door has been maintained to those homes that were not converted to community mailboxes in the fall, and that won’t be changing any time soon. All mailbox installations were put on hold, and Canada Post was removing any community mailboxes that were installed but had not yet been put in use. Canada Post has said that those communities that have already made the switch, which includes most of Campbell River, will continue to use community mailboxes until the program is reviewed.

BC Hydro is advising anglers to be cautious around the Campbell River from Jan. 1 to Feb. 15. River flows on hydroelectric systems can change whether through planned or unplanned adjustments. BC Hydro has permanent public warning signage along the river and sirens that initiate once a certain flow rate threshold is reached. “BC Hydro has the ability in our water licence to adjust operations at our John Hart facility to respond to electric system demands, planned outages within our grid system, and to make the most economic use through market conditions of water stored in our reservoirs,” says BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. “We are least restricted through our licence in January and the first two weeks of February, and that’s because it’s tied to the fish life-cycle. Salmon eggs are in the gravel. And there are no adult salmon; they’ve finished the spawning cycle.” Watson said the fish habitat is fully covered with water at about 80 cubic metres per second and that Hydro will not go below that level. However, they can adjust discharges out of the generating station above that flow rate up to about 130 m3/s quite quickly and hold it there for hours before going back down. “The electricity spot market is generally lower at night and higher during the day,” says Watson. “BC Hydro is fortunate with our many hydroelectric facilities across the province to be able to conserve water at night and then increase power generation during the day to look after our domestic load needs and take advantage of the favourable market conditions. It helps keep our rates lower.” BC Hydro has four hydroelectric watersheds on Vancouver Island, with the three others being the Puntledge, Ash and Jordan river facilities. BC Hydro can adjust operations for daily market conditions on all of them except for Puntledge. The ability to be able to “load factor” as BC Hydro calls it, came from the community water use planning process completed years ago and implemented beginning in November 2012. This is the first time the water conditions have allowed BC Hydro to employ this operational flexibility at the John Hart facility. BC Hydro has done this for years at the Strathcona generating facility in the upper Campbell River watershed. “We ask that fishers that may be in or around the river to be aware of this operational flexibility and to be cautious during this six-week period. We will try to ramp up the flows in the early morning before daylight, but the timing of flow changes ultimately depends on electric system conditions and how much water is available in the Campbell River system reservoirs.”

An abundance of research has been done on this very subject, and it shows without a doubt that there are many benefits of bringing children to museums.  Museums allow us to get a glimpse of other times and places and to learn about how other people lived.  This develops curiosity, empathy, critical thinking and other skills.  Guests at the museum are encouraged to ask questions and have discussions about what they see. Erika Anderson works at the Museum at Campbell River and has a six-year-old son who visits the

Museum frequently. “I have been bringing my son to museums since he was a toddler,” she says. “He has been to the Museum at Campbell River dozens of times, and every time he notices something new, he comes up with different questions to ask, and we have discussions on different topics relating to what he has seen.” Take some time with your kids, your grandparents, your aunts and uncles or your friends to enjoy a memorable immersive learning experience during Literacy Week Jan. 26 to 29. You’ll enjoy the trip, gain all kinds of benefits and it will be free!  The Museum is open from Noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.  For more information call 250-2873103 or go to crmuseum.ca

From mini readings of Tarot cards to essential oils, acupressure and reflexology, the Centre for Spiritual Learning has it covered on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Orange Naturals products are designed to be easy to use and easy to understand. Because we believe medicine should be safe, effective and accessible for everyone.

he start of a new year seems to motivate many to renew their interest in their health and refocus on things like diet, physical activity and find new possibilities for self-care. The Centre for Spiritual Living is trying to help, by presenting a Wellness Market and Fair on Saturday, Jan 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., which will showcase a wide range of wellness products and services available locally. Many products to enhance a healthy approach to life will be

presented for sale, including hand crafted soaps and mindfully designed jewelry. Providers of massage, acupressure, reiki, reflexology, and many more healing modalities will be present to answer questions and provide mini sessions of their treatments. Nia dancers will be on hand showing how that activity is enjoyable as well as being a healthy benefit, and locally grown organic produce will be sold as well. An essential oil expert will

show which oils can be used to make home cleaning products, saving money, and avoiding extra environmental chemicals, and don’t forget the intuitive mini readings of Tarot cards. For anyone interested in a healthy lifestyle, this event promises to be a “One Stop Shop.” Located at 561 S Dogwood St, the Centre is developing as a Wellness Centre for body, mind, and spirit.

Campbell River ‘champ’ benefits from Key Tag Service now in its 70th year

As The War Amps 2016 Key Tags are mailed to B.C. residents this week, the service marks 70 years of returning lost keys to their owners. Donations to the Key Tag Service assist members of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program, including Garrett Warkentin, 7, of Campbell River. Warkentin was born a left arm amputee and has received financial assistance for the cost of artificial limbs and recreational devices. Growing up, he has also attended regional CHAMP seminars where Champs and parents learn about the latest in artificial limbs, dealing with teasing and bullying and parenting an amputee child. “Thanks to CHAMP’s support, there’s nothing Garrett can’t do. He was recently fitted with a bike device that allows him to hold onto the handlebars, giving him more control and confidence when riding,” says mom, Julia Warkentin. The War Amps Key Tag Service was launched in 1946 so that returning war amputees could not only work for competitive wages, but also provide a service to Canadians that would generate funds for the Association. The Key Tag Service continues to employ amputees and people with disabilities. Each key tag has a confidentially coded number. Should the keys be lost, the finder can call the toll-free number on the back of the tag, or

deposit them in any mailbox, and the keys will be returned to the owner by bonded courier. “Thanks to the public’s support of the Key Tag Service, young amputees like Warkentin are able to live full and active lives,” says Danita Chisholm, Executive Director of the CHAMP Program. The War Amps receives no government grants and its programs are possible through public support of the Key Tag and Address Label Service.

Island Avalanche Bulletin has been serving the Island for eight years now Upcoming fundraiser helps keep it going

B

y many measures, snow sports industry analysts and business people agree that human powered pursuits have been the fastest growing segment of the snow sports industry for a number of years now. Anecdotally at least we can say that this is true here on Vancouver Island. One need only stand at the chairlift line up at Mount Washington doing a count of the number of people skiing on backcountry equipment or look at the hundreds of people signing up for avalanche education each winter (see related story on Page 39) to guess that this is the trend here on the Island as well. So where are all these people going? Well the backcountry of course is the answer and it raises some interesting issues. We all know that the backcountry poses risks that patrolled and man-

aged ski areas do not. We can all easily imagine an increased need for rescue services and the like as backcountry user numbers grow. In addition to a reactive response to increasing numbers in the backcountry (rescue capability) it behooves us to also use a proactive approach. This typically comes in the form of education. Avalanche Canada has done a tremendous job in spreading the gospel of avalanche education through it’s Avalanche Skills Training program. Delivered by local providers across the country, this program has arguably become the most successful recreational avalanche education program in the world and it’s success can easily be seen with the numbers taking courses here on Vancouver Island.

an avalanche course they do so armed with a number of tools to manage their risk in the backcountry. A big portion of what they have learned is to focus on pre trip planning. This planning process relies heavily on an avalanche bulletin. Enter the Vancouver Island Avalanche Bulletin. Eight years back now, Island based guides, avalanche forecasters and avalanche educators Cliff Umpleby and Jan Neuspiel saw a need for an avalanche bulletin on Vancouver Island that was not being filled. So they started a homegrown avalanche bulletin. This grassroots effort is supported entirely by island based businesses and users and is a unique model for a locallysupported avalanche warning product. The bulletin is supported primarily by two annual fund rais-

ing events: The Party for the Bulletin and the Backcountry Festival. The party for the bulletin is coming up on Saturday, Jan. 23 at the Riding Fool Hostel in Cumberland. Live music, beer from Cumberland Brewing and an amazing silent auction including a lot of fine backcountry gear are all features of this event. Ten-dollar tickets are available at Tarbell’s Deli in Cumberland, Ski Tak Hut in Courtenay and on line at Eventbrite (search for the 8th Annual Party for the Bulletin). Doors open at 8 p.m. The event always sells out so getting tickets soon is advised.

SNOW SKILLS

SEARCH AND RESCUE GETS UP TO SPEED

O

n the second weekend of January, Campbell River Search and Rescue (CRSAR) sent nine members, along with three from Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue, to an intensive avalanche training workshop at Mount Cain. Two full days were spent refreshing all avalanche-related skills, like snowpack evaluation, risk assessment, rescue scenarios, terrain strategies, and understanding weather and its implications. Leading the program was Lyle Fast, a fully certified Association of Canadian Mountain Guides ski guide, and long-time associate of Mount Cain.

The group spent some of their time familiarizing themselves with the more popular outof-bounds areas of the mountain, in preparation for any event where they may be needed in these areas. CRSAR holds an event like this at least every other winter, to keep skills refreshed, and to be able to socialize in the evenings in a cabin, which is a rare opportunity for most of the members. Tim Fairbank, a search manager with the group, pointed out “I’m especially pleased that we were able to invite some of our counterparts from the Comox Valley, since we often do work together on tasks, so training together is

important. Trevor Provost, Mountain Rescue team leader with CRSAR, said, “The best part about this year’s training was that everyone came with some level of formal training already, so we were able to take our skills to the next level.” For more information, see the website: crsar.ca . Winter recreationists, whether they are alpine skiers, snowmobilers, snowshoers or backcountry skiers, are reminded that if you go into uncontrolled mountainous terrain, carry a beacon, probe and shovel, and take a course in avalanche awareness. Courses are available locally from Island Alpine Guides: islandalpineguides.com .

2013 (326280) $15.05 blends Pinot Gris, Riesling and Chardonnay into a fruit filled sizzler, very bright and tantalizingly tasty. Oodles of crisp apple and pear aromas and flavours slide into cantaloupe and ripe honeydew melon. An interesting afterwisp of candied lime rind lingers in the last sipé Jack Fraser and family purchased Thornhaven Winery in 2005 from cousin Dennis Fraser. Thornhaven sits on Little Giant’s Head Mountain, with a spectacular view of both Okanagan Lake and the magnificent surrounding mountains, an area many people have likened to Tuscany.  Thornhaven Pinot Noir 2011 (732768) $19.10 is a light Burgundian-styled Pinot Noir aged in French oak barrels. Spicy peppery tannins underly flavours and aromas of ripe cherry and dried straw-

berry. Elegant and ‘lean’, this is a great bridge in any dinner as you move from lighter whites to more full-bodied reds. If you’re attending the 38th Vancouver International Wine Festival in a few weeks – and you’re also putting aside your prejudices and paying attention to the quality of the wines you’re sampling? – you may be surprised by just how well our own local BC produced wines compare with the international competition. Fruit farmers in the Okanagan Valley since 1995, in 2007 Sant and Gurbachan Gill started planting grape vines. In 2009, they decided to open a winery and chose their prime vineyard on the slopes of a hill along the Golden Mile, between Oliver and Osoyoos. They called it Gold Hill because of its location along this famous stretch–and because they wanted to produce

the very best wine possible. Gold Hill Viognier (570952) $20.05 is a full-throttled version of this honeysuckle and raisin flavoured wine, high in alcohol. Peaches and apricots ooze from the glass, slowly sliding into honeyed melon and apple pie as the wine warms in the glass. Petite Milo is one of several hybrids created by Switzerland’s Vladimir Blattner, it is cold hardy, disease resistant and early ripening. The variety is not an over producer but consistent and will ripen

its grapes in very short seasons less than 150 frost free days. Nestled in the foothills of Mill Bay, surrounded by pasture and minutes away from the Pacific Ocean, Unsworth Vineyards’ Cowichan Valley setting provides the perfect coastal climate for growing some of the world’s finest and most unique wine grapes. Unsworth Petit Milo (610253) $24.10 intrigues any honest wine lover with ripe pink grapefruit aromas and flavours highlighted by white peach and lime. True – it doesn’t

quite taste like any wine you know but the midpalate delivers of hard lemon candy, lime and very obvious notes of guava. Organic winemaking practices have been an integral part of Summerhill Pyramid Winery since the Kelowna vineyard was purchased by the Cipes family in 1986. Producing wine organically has a meaningful benefit to the environment, and Ezra Cipes maintains that eating organic foods greatly benefits our health. A blend of 87 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and 13 per cent Cabernet Franc aged 27 months in French and American oak barrels, Summerhill Pyramid Winery Cabernets 2010 (849885) $28.05 offers classic Cabernet aromas of cassis, plum and black cherry with undertones of dark chocolate, cedar, and a twist of peppery spiciness.

Museum celebrates logging locomotives I f you like to take a walk in the woods around Campbell River you have probably come across old railway grades, or even remnants of old trestles. The Museum at Campbell River’s new temporary exhibit brings the time when those railways were built and in operation back to life.  Logging Locomotives is a photographic exhibit that features a selection of the Campbell River region’s more prominent logging camps, and their trusty steam engines. 

From the comical tales of Lamb Lumber’s combined logging camp and farm operation, to the tragic wreckage of Bloedel, Stewart and Welch’s iconic Shay, this new exhibit explores some of the stories from the history of our logging industry. “This exhibit shows how something as short-lived as the railroad logging era can still have a profound impact on a region, both socially and geographically,” says interim curator Suzanne Bonner.

“The exhibit hopes to spark memories from those who recall the days of railroad logging, and the interests of budding locomotive enthusiasts.” Logging Locomotives runs until Feb. 21 at the Museum at Campbell River. The exhibit can also be viewed during the Annual Train Show with the North Island Railroaders January 30 and 31.  For more information call 250-287-3103 or go online to www.crmuseum.ca

Central Island artists sought for Valley studio tour Comox Valley Arts has announced a new season of Studio Tour. Twice this year, the public will have the opportunity to visit working studios and discover the incredible breadth and depth of creativity right here in the central Island. Registration is now

open for artists of all disciplines, throughout Central Vancouver Island, who wish to participate and open their doors to the public. Previous tours have stretched between Oyster River and Parksville. To be eligible to participate as a studio: You must be a current

member of the Comox Valley Arts to participate. You must have studio space suitable for public entry - a rented space, an outbuilding, a dedicated space in your home You must be a “working artist” - meaning, this is your full time profession (even if you have

a “day job” to keep the lights on). New this year: Artists who do not have public studios of their own may collaborate with those who do*. Also new this year: Commercial galleries with a minimum of 80 per cent Central Island representation are also

eligible to participate this year*. The tour is not limited to visual arts, although they do dominate the tour. Professional level performing, video, digital and recording arts studios are welcome to participate. The goal is to offer an inside glimpse of how

art in all forms is created and of the people who create it. Registration deadline for the spring tour is Febr. 18. Registration fees start at $90. Full details on website. Spring tour dates are May 27-29. The tour is promoted

as a free, self-guided journey of artistic exploration – and a unique opportunity to purchase original art directly from the artist - throughout Central Vancouver Island. For complete details and to register as a studio, visit www.comoxvalleyarts.com/studiotours

Comox Valley Airport reports record annual passenger count

The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) announced it ser ved a record 351,530 passengers in 2015, an increase of 10 per cent over the previous year. YQQ has grown an impressive 90 per cent since the opening of the new terminal building in 2004, with 2015 being the busiest year yet for the airport. The previous passenger record was set in 2012 with almost

328,000 guests moving through the terminal. “We are simply ecstatic to see such a high rate of growth for the year at YQQ,” said Comox Valley Airport CEO Fred Bigelow.  “These record breaking numbers are directly attributable to Air Canada’s new service to Vancouver and the additional capacity and scheduling improvements by WestJet and WestJet Encore on our

Calgary route.” Additional daily service to Calgary with WestJet Encore began in January 2015 and provided scheduling improvements by adding additional frequency to WestJet’s Calgary hub from Comox.  Then in May, Air Canada began its twice-daily service from Comox to Vancouver, providing additional connection options within the Air Canada

MANAGING YOUR MONEY

PAC now to 3x8retire well Investors Group

It’s an undeniable fiscal fact: Filling up your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) contribution room each year is a great way to maximize the size of your retirement nest egg. But many Canadians have trouble coming up with a sizeable chunk of money as the contribution deadline looms (as it is now) – and as a consequence, that contribution room goes unfilled and their retirement savings are diminished.

But there is an easy solution: A PreAuthorized Contribution Program (PAC), an easy way to invest – so easy you may actually forget you are investing – that delivers these significant financial benefits: • Your regular contributions have longer to grow and thanks to the miracle of compounding, you add significantly to your retirement nest egg. • You enjoy the benefits of dollar cost averaging – meaning that you buy fewer units of an RRSP-eligible mutual fund (for example) when prices are high and more units when prices are low. Over time, this strategy reduces the impact of volatility and usually results in a lower average cost to you and the accumulation of more units.

your savings or chequing account on a regular basis that is contributed to your RRSP (or additionally or alternatively to a Tax-Free Savings Account or your nonregistered portfolio). You’ll be amazed at the long-term growth your PAC can deliver – here’s an example: PAC $250 into your RRSP each month and (at an annual compounding rate of return of 6%) you’ll have $243,628 of pre-tax assets after thirty years.* But if you wait until the end of each year to invest a lump sum of $3,000, you’ll only have $237,174. So by PAC-ing each month, you potentially add $6,454 to your retirement fund without costing you one additional penny!

There’s no doubt that a PAC can be instrumental to reaching your long-term goals, but it is only one element of a comprehensive financial plan that should also include such strategies as asset allocation, portfolio balance/rebalance, tax-reduction, estate planning and other strategies tailored especially for you. Your professional advisor can help you pick the PAC and financial plan that works best for you. *The rate of return is used as an illustration only and is not intended to reflect future returns on investment.

route network and a continued code share arrangement with Central Mountain Air.   “A key focus of the Comox Valley Airport in 2015 was to increase the number of same-day connections available from YQQ,” explained Bigelow. “It is now easier than ever for passengers to start their journey from the Comox Valley Airport.” Air Canada’s new Vancouver route offers about 30 connections for Comox passengers, including: Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Seoul, Osaka, Beijing, Shanghai, Honolulu, Maui, and London Heathrow. WestJet’s

added capacity opened up more than 14 additional WestJet connections for YQQ passengers, including sunspot destinations like Varadero, Orlando, Palm Springs, Fort Lauderdale and Cabo San Lucas. While YQQ does not expect to see such a high rate of growth sustained in the coming years, Bigelow says he is confident of the Comox Valley Airport’s position moving forward. “We are very fortunate in this economic climate to have experienced growth in 2015. Particularly given the elimination of weekly energy sector charter flights and large scale layoffs in Alberta that can have

ripple effects in our community,” explained Bigelow. “We are prepared to withstand some impact to our future growth as the economy in Alberta finds its footing. However, we believe the demographics of the Comox Valley, combined with our great air service options, will help us to ride out this turbulent period.”   About the Comox Valley Airport   The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) is an economic driver for Northern Vancouver Island, supporting about 193 direct jobs including airlines, airport management, security, food

and beverage, retail and ground transportation. The airport and tourism business community together generate $367 million in Gross Domestic Product and $701 million in direct economic output for the community. YQQ is operated by the Comox Valley Airport Commission, which was established in 1996 as a nonshare capital and notfor-profit organization to operate the civil aviation facilities, including the terminal and apron.  The airfield and its associated systems, including air traffic control, are operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force at 19 Wing Comox on a continuous 24-hour basis.

(Watershed Sentinel, Nov., 2015). It seems inconceivable that anyone would even consider a product that deliberately disperses irretrievable particles of plastic into a world already awash with the toxic stuff. Granted, a number of companies are now transitioning from plastic microbeads to harmless oatmeal, bamboo, ground apricot pits and powered walnut and pecan shells — an option that was available before they started using microbeads. But their gesture of gradual reform required pressure from some 65 non-

Fossil fuel companies producing gas, oil and coal also find themselves transitioning into a new category of ethically dubious products as global climate change gains prominence with worsening weather. The same applies to forestry. The rationale for logging old growth forests has vanished in concert with the vanishing forests.

OF GREEN Ray Grigg

Microbeads: A Foolish Idea The use of plastic microbeads as abrasives in hundreds of products ranging from face washes to toothpaste must be one of the more foolish ideas ever conceived by marketers and manufacturers. About the size of grains of sand, these indestructible tidbits of plastic get flushed down drains to enter rivers, lakes and oceans at a rate of about 8 trillion per day in the United States alone; about 800 trillion more per day are collected in wastewater and sewage treatment plants than spread on land in sludge

principles of ecological preservation and carbon sequestration. Ocean net-pen salmon farming is also losing its ethical respectability. A profitable idea decades ago is looking less acceptable as the ramifications and complications of this industry multiply. As viruses proliferate and mutate in the densely populated net-pens, and as sea lice develop immunity to the conventional prophylactics, more toxic and extreme measures must be taken to make their operations viable. The spread of lice and viruses to wild stocks has meant stringent constraints on

European operations. Not yet so in British Columbia. In scientific journals, hidden behind the glowing self-promotion of the salmon farming industry, are rumblings of concern and trouble. If the profit motive of any industry is to be respected and endorsed in a modern society, it must function within the context of human and environmental ethics. Some products, such as microbeads, were never a good idea. Others lose their legitimacy over time. Progress, like profits, should be guided by ethics.

Jessie Lagos In loving memory of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who left us on January 23, 1992. Somewhere beyond the sunset, where the loveliness never dies, she dwells in a beautiful garden, with the blue and the gold of the skies.

Walter Michael (Mike) McCluskey September 18, 1936-January 14, 2016 Mike is survived by his wife and partner of 34 years, Linda, sons Scott (Sherry) and Michael Jr., daughters Wendy and Carmen (Sean), nine grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, nephew Steven, niece Melissa, and his beloved cat Tonchie. Mike had a long and varied career in the aviation industry, flying many types of aircraft, on floats, skiis, and wheels, as well as copilot on Cessna Citation 500. He received his pilots license in 1955, and flew commercially until his retirement in 1995. Beginning in Ontario, he worked in many of the eastern provinces and territories, including Quebec, Labrador and Newfoundland, before moving his young family west to Campbell River in the mid 1960s. Mike was a “jack of all trades” and avid outdoor enthusiast. Always busy, he built houses, hiked, biked and generally loved the outdoors. In 2003, he completed the “Great Walk” from Tahsis to Gold River with his friend Klaus. He also held a ticket as a “Tool and Die Maker”, and when not flying, worked in that trade for one of the Engineering outfits in Campbell River. Mike loved to travel and along with Linda, had visited many countries, Peru, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Egypt, most of Europe, China, Tibet, Greece, Turkey, Singapore, Antarctica, and The Amazon to name a few. Many winters were spent in Mexico, enjoying the warm Mexican sunshine and comradery of friends. Mike was an inspiration to his children and grandchildren, and will be forever missed and loved, especially by his wife Linda. Mike donated his brain to the UBC clinic for Alzheimer Disease at UBC Hospital. Donations can be made in Mike’s memory to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. A private gathering was held for Mike on Jan 17, 2016. There will be an informal scattering and celebration of life held for Mike at a later date.

Albert Karl Tarkanen May 5, 1931- January 20, 2016

It is with much sadness that the family of Albert Karl Tarkanen announce his death which occurred on January 20, 2016 at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. Born May 5, 1931 in Alert Bay, BC., he was the only child of the late Jack and Esther Tarkanen. He was also predeceased by his first wife and mother of his children Eija (Jarvinen); second wife Fran (Drury) and his special grandson Brent Tarkanen. Albert is survived by his partner and best friend Mary Parkes; his three children Steve Tarkanen (Crystal), Linda Sjoberg (Campbell), Carleen Palo (Barry), daughter-in-law Jean Tarkanen, sons-in-law Tim Church and Gerald Sjoberg; seven grandchildren Tanya, Jason and Troy Sjoberg, Jory Tarkanen, Jaylene Atkinson, Dylan and Katie Church as well as nieces and nephews. At the age of six Albert moved with his parents to Sointula, BC., where as a teenager he began his lifelong and dearly loved career as commercial fisherman. Albert’s knowledge of BC coastal waters was phenomenal and his happiest days were those spent fishing halibut, rock cod, herring, trolling for salmon and gill netting. His many boats from the Sturgeon1 to Island Reward were his pride and joy. Albert’s success as businessman and fisherman can be attributed to his ability to accept change, welcome new technology and his special skill of finding talented people to work with him. He will be missed not only at his Marine Ways, Freezer Plant and Net Loft in Sointula but by his network of commercial fisherman families and associated businesses all along the BC Coast. A service celebrating Albert’s life will be held in Sointula Hall at 2pm on January 30, 2016. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Sointula Cemetery Fund.

Peter James Shaw

December 4, 1925 – December 18, 2015 Husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, sailor, hunter, golfer and the best damn grader operator anywhere has left for greener pastures where every shot is a hole in one and every meal has Yorkshire Pudding and key lime pie. Dad was born in Parksville and, although he travelled far, his heart was always on the Island. After time in the logging industry, he joined the war effort and sailed with the Atlantic convoys during WW II on HMCS Prince Rupert. After the war’s end, he joined the Surfacing Branch of what was to become the Ministry of Highways and laid a lot of the first blacktop in the Okanagan, Princeton and Cariboo areas. He met Mom while in Vernon and they got married in Parksville in 1951. Dad started looking for a job where he wouldn’t be away from home so much. They ended up in Quesnel where Dad was a foreman for Highways for many years. In 1964, Dad took a giant risk, quit Highways, bought his first grader and embarked on another adventure, building and maintaining logging roads and plowing snow. Another grader followed and Peter J Shaw Ltd. eventually had 2 graders, a loader and a truck plow. The opportunity to return to the Island came in 1975 and Dad sold off all the equipment except for the one grader and moved everyone to Campbell River. There followed many years of grading roads and plowing snow, mainly from Gold River to Head Bay but other places as well. Dad eventually sold the grader and retired but it didn’t stick and he went back to work running grader for various outfits, including Holbrook Dyson Logging and Onion Lake Logging before really retiring in February 1989. Mom and Dad moved from South McCarthy to the place in Shelter Bay in 1984, where they spent many years; Mom digging in the garden and Dad golfing at Stories Creek or out fishing in the Topper III. While it was an idyllic life, it didn’t stop them from running away to Yuma in the winter or to Cranbrook for hunting with his sons. When the stairs became too much, Mom and Dad moved to the Forde House in Willow Point in 2013 and then to Berwick in 2015. Mary, children Ed (Linda), John, He leaves behind his wife Mary; Peter (Tina), Paul and Cilka (Mark), many grandchildren and greatgrandkids. great-grandkids. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 137 in Campbell River on Saturday May 21, 2016 from 1 to 4 pm. Flowers gratefully declined.

More nurses for us? Island Health knows what kind of nurses they’ll hire, just now where they will go

FRIDAY, JANUARY JANUARY 22, 22, 2016 2016 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || 63 63 FRIDAY,

www.CampbellRiverMirror.com www.CampbellRiverMirror.com

MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

It’s too early to tell what relief is coming for Campbell River nurses after the province’s announcement of over 1,600 additional nursing positions being added to the health system province-wide. The province announced the creation of the 1,643 additional regular nursing positions, 290 of which will

be within Island Health ( f o r m e r l y V I HA ) , thoug h the health authority has not established where on the Island those positions will be made available. Health Minister Terry Lake and B.C. Nurses’ Union (BCNU) president Gayle Duteil announced Tuesday they have reached a staff increase agreement that has been the main obstacle to signing a new contract.

The previous deal expired nearly two years ago, and the dispute over staffing was headed for arbitration. “Nurses are important, highly-skilled members of health care teams throughout British Columbia, and today’s announcement acknowledges their integral role in the health system,” Lake said in the release about the agreement. “Over the past year,

we have been working closely with nurses to make health care improvements that benefit both patients and staff. We are confident this spirit of partnership will continue as we work together on a new collective agreement that meets the goals of nurses, health authorities and the Province.” Valerie Wilson of Island Health says that their 290 permanent nursing positions will

be posted by the end of March, but, “we don’t have a breakdown yet around where all of the positions will be located.” She did, however, have a breakdown of the types of positions that are expected to be available, which include, “new positions for Registered Nurses or Registered Psychiatric Nurses,” and be broken down as, “140 Specialty Education positions at major

sites in Island Health, 110 positions regularizing relief and creating full-time opportunities for new graduates of nursing programs and 40 new positions in Community Care and Primary Care.” Wilson also said Island Health will be holding hiring fairs for new nursing students in early March. “To nurses who are trying to provide safe patient care while work-

ing short in ERs and operating rooms and nurses who cope with overwhelming workloads, this agreement means that relief is on the way,” Duteil said in Tuesday’s announcement, encouraging any nurses who are working casual shifts and want a permanent position to email hireanurse@ bcnu.org, as BCNU is acting as the first point of contact in the hiring process.

Beat the winter blues W

arm up the winter with another g re at p e r for m an c e brought to you by the Quadra Cultural Committee. Coming to the Quadra Island Community Centre on Friday, Feb. 12 is Còig (Ko-ig), an exciting ensemble of musicians from Cape Breton, said to be one of that island’s most captivating young bands. Originally coming together for a promotional tour for the Celtic Colours International Festival, the formation proved to be something special, and the group decided to continue to tour together as a band. Proving to be a serious force to be reckoned with in the traditional music scene with their driving tunes, haunting songs and infectious energy, Còig is a treat for the ears of every audience they meet. Fiddler Chrissy Crowley, from Margaree, Cape Breton has an impressive list of awards, nominations, and international appearances. Crowley embraces her Celtic roots and makes them her own, through original compositions coupled with contemporary arrangements of traditional tunes. Darren McMullen, from Hardwood Lands, NS, is a highly sought after multi-instrumental-

ist. Easily switching between guitar, mandolin, whistle and banjo with Còig, this “Swissarmy knife” keeps the rhythm sound diverse, and is sure to impress with his lead playing of his various “on-stage weapons.” Rachel Davis from Baddeck, Cape Breton spends her time switching from international festival stages to small local dances at home. In a genre that sees many performers pushing the envelope and testing new waters, her style of playing tradi-

tional tunes in a traditional way is a refreshing reminder of why the Cape Breton fiddle style drives so hard, and is so sought after. Jason Roach, from Chéticamp, Cape Breton is one of the most impressive piano players you will ever hear. With a style all his own, and an unparalleled intensity on the keys, you’ll have to remind yourself that there’s other players on the stage. With a combined total of more than 30 nominations and awards, each of Còig’s talented

musicians have released their own successful solo albums, and have toured both at home and abroad before coming together as this exciting super group. Their much anticipated debut album “Five” was released in June, 2014 to rave reviews, and has earned the band the 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Album of the Year, the Music Nova Scotia Award for Traditional/Roots Recording of the Year, and most recently, the 2015 East Coast Music Award for

Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year. Tickets for this performance can be purchased on Quadra Island at Works of H’Art in Heriot Bay, Inspirations in Quathiaski Cove and in Campbell River, at the Music Plant.   Advance tickets are $17 or $20 at the door. Performances are made possible with sponsorship and funding from Quadra Island Recreation Centre, BC Arts Council, the Government of Canada and the Strathcona Regional District.

n a fantastic tribute to the spirit of Robbie Burns, this Saturday, the Fiddlejam Funtime Fiddlers will play at the Big Yellow Merville Hall.  Along with the bagpipes, the fiddle is the musical instrument of choice for strapping, bare legged, kilted Scots and the local Fiddlejam Fiddlers who know how to shake the thistles and spurtles to get the dancers onto the floor. Celtic Caller June Cannon will guide the dancers with her clear and clever instructions.  Nobody gets left behind and everyone will have a good time. Guaranteed. Doors open at 7 p.m., with a complimentary Contra Dance workshop right before the dance to loosen you up and to prepare you for the spins and lively steps of the Virginia Reel and the Gay Gordon.  Dancing begins at

7:30 and families and single dancers are welcome. Singles can pair up with anyone during the Contras – sets last about 15 to 20 minutes. Old time waltzes and reels; jigs and swing; schottisches and foxtrots will all be played. There is a dance for everyone at this Highland Hoedown. In a toast of the poetry of Robbie Burns and the new tradition of Scottish Contra Dances, there will be healthy helpings of ‘haggis’ to titillate the tastebuds, along with other treats, from the contra canteen.  Kilts are great for dancing in, wear your colours with flare. So on Saturday, steer your Shetland Pony in the direction of the Big Yellow Merville Dance Hall, on the Old Island Highway.  Cost is $10/ adults, $5/youth and $22 for a family.  For more information, call 250-339-4249. Slainte!

more than 20 years. “Constantly there is garbage and refuse strewn about with little regard for the environment. Vehicles also park and engage in all sorts of mischief from lighting fireworks to drinking and leaving alcoholic bottles behind,” LeNaour wrote in a letter to the regional district.“Not wanting to just complain without giving solution, I am writing to inquire about the possibility of the Strathcona Regional District to consider selling this lot to myself.” LeNaour said he and his grandfather have for years been cleaning the lot up and trying to keep it from becoming an eyesore. Strathcona Regional District directors considered LeNaour’s letter at the board’s Jan. 13 meeting. Are a D Direc tor Brenda Leigh said she would hate to see the regional district give up a piece of property that allows access to the Oyster River. “We have had issues with the Oyster River bank protection project, getting easement through people’s property to do protection

and it’s very costly to go through the legal process if anyone protests,” Leigh said. “I don’t want to put my constituents in the position that if the regional district has to access the dyke through that property right of way that we now have to go through someone’s property.” Victoria Smith, special projects and sustainability manager, and Aniko Nelson, parks and planning manager, wrote in a report to the board that the property is at high risk of flooding. “The regional district has an interest in controlling development within flood prone areas,” they wrote. Smith and Nelson confirmed that the property has been used for illegal dumping, vehicular access and the occasional campfire and gathering. However, $2,000 will be allocated in the Area D parks budget to address maintenance issues. Director Leigh said the Comox Strathcona Waste Management service is also debating tougher enforcement of penalties for illegal dumping. Currently, the inactive

park land consists of a short walking trail that connects to an adjacent parcel of Crown land. There is another piece of inactive park owned by the regional district on the far side of the Crown land. The regional district purchased those two lots in 1992 with the intention of acquiring the Crown land in the middle to create a community park. Leigh said there is the potential to develop the site in the future. “The Area D Greenways plan does have a 50-year horizon for acquiring lands that might connect as greenway trails and greenway parks,” Leigh said. LeNaour said his intention with the land would be to keep it in a semi-natural state and use the lot as an extension to his backyard to plant vegetables, beautify and take care of. “Currently the SRD (Strathcona Regional District) is not protecting this lot,” LeNaour wrote. “I believe that the SRD would benefit in this by taking the monies made by the sale of this lot and putting it into the Parkland Acquisition Reserve Fund. With the monies made, the right site can be chosen for another park based on the criteria set in the community plan.” But despite LeNaour’s suggestions, the board ultimately decided to decline his offer, taking into account the advice of regional district staff to hold onto the property for flood management purposes.
