Salmon toss illustrates the circle of life Jacob Zinn News Staff

Peter McCully gets asked a lot about why he throws dead salmon into local rivers. Since 1992, the biologist from the Howard English Hatchery has worked with the Friends of Mount Douglas Park Society for its annual salmon carcass toss at Douglas Creek, which sees members plant salmon carcasses in the water to encourage spawning. “It’s like fertilizing the river: the nutrients that are carried in the carcasses of the salmon have been acquired at sea,” said McCully. “They’re called marinederived nutrients, and they’re what make our streams and rivers so bountiful.” Dozens of volunteers turned out for the salmon toss, along with Saanich councillors Judy Brownoff and Vicki Sanders, and Saanich South MLA Lana Popham. Because of the rainfall on the west coast, McCully said the rain tends to wash out the nutrients from local streams, making them nutrient poor and negatively impacting their ability to support production of the bottom of the food chain. However, with a little help from volunteers, Pacific salmon have a way of overcoming the washout of nutrients and eventually making streams more bountiful. “The fish will come back and spawn once and then it will die,” he said. “All of that carcass is recycled into the food chain, and when the salmon is out at sea and it’s feeding, it accumulates what we call marinederived nutrients. Things like nitrogen and carbon and phosphorus, and they’re the building blocks of the food chain in fresh water. “That’s why we’re putting dead fish into the stream.” The hatchery provided dozens of carcasses for the event, which gained permission from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to move the salmon between watersheds. Volunteers also released juvenile coho into the creek, which are expected to stay in the creek until May before heading into the ocean and, with any luck, returning to spawn 18 months later. “We did this last year, and we actually had coho come

Broadmead veterans honoured by France Six Saanich veterans presented with Legion of Honour Jacob Zinn News Staff

The Veterans Memorial Lodge at Broadmead is home to many Canadian heroes, and a half-dozen of them just received France’s highest honour. Last week, six veterans from the facility were presented with the Legion of Honour for their roles in liberating the country during the Second World War. Established by Napoleon Bonaparte during the French Revolution in 1802, the Legion of Honour commends soldiers for their exemplary service to France. “This is the highest recognition from France, and for the chief and I, it’s certainly a really significant honour in our careers to represent France and Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces in presenting these honours today,� said Commodore Marta Mulkins, who presented the medals with Formation Chief Petty Officer Mike Feltham. “You realize that when they were doing this, they were 18, 19, 20, 21 years old,� said Feltham. “It’s great that France recognizes them and Canada recognizes them.� The recipients included Jack Porter, Bill Capek, Ken Parton, Geoff Lesueur, Philip Jeffrey and Earl Clark Porter joined the South Alberta Reserve Regiment, telling recruiters that he was 19 when, in actuality, he was still in Grade 9. He served as a sergeant in charge of technical stores, landing on the beaches of Normandy with supply trucks that supported the tanks. Capek served with the Lake Superior Scottish during the invasion of Normandy, driving his carrier onto the beaches and on to Cannes, where fighting was heavy. His regiment went on to free the canals in Holland and fought their way into Germany. Parton served with the 8th Canadian Reconnaissance Regiment, driving a bren gun carrier through Holland, Belgium, Germany and France. He had many harrowing experiences while at war, including the death of a brave friend and fellow soldier at the hands of a female sniper, and a near miss by a bullet that got embedded behind his seat in the carrier. Lesueur voluntarily enlisted in the Royal Canadian Airforce in 1942 at 19. He flew 48 missions in 1944 and 1945 as a rear tail gunner in a Lancaster bomber with

Members of the Maritime Pacific Forces met with six veterans from the Veterans Memorial Lodge at Broadmead on Thursday. The war heroes were presented the French National Order of the Legion of Honour - the country’s highest decoration - in recognition of their efforts in liberating France during the Second World War. the 49th and 83rd Squadrons, including D-Day and many Pathfinder flights. Jeffrey was a leading coxswain with the 262 Landing Craft Infantry Flotilla, which stormed Juno Beach as part of the combined ops on D-Day. Clark was a logger before and during the war with the Canadian Forestry Corps in northern Scotland. His group took a Polish ship across the English Channel to Juno Beach, where they scrambled down netting from the ship’s hull to get to the landing craft. In addition to receiving their medals, the veterans

were greeted by members of the Maritime Forces Pacific, recognizing them for their efforts during the Second World War. “We lose veterans everyday, so to pass this honour now is important,� said Feltham. “That’s why we brought so many young sailors with us so they could see what their forefathers did.� “It’s really recognition of courage and sacrifice, and as long as there are Canadians to remember, these folks here will be remembered,� said Mulkins. jacob.zinn@saanichnews.com

Police investigating numerous indecent acts over past two months Saanich Police are working with police in Victoria to track down a man responsible for numerous indecent acts over the past two months. Police are investigating reports of a man accused of exposing himself and making sexually explicit comments to young women at least a dozen times over the past several weeks.

According to police, the man has either made vulgar, sexually explicit comments to the woman or exposed himself to them. All of the victims are females in

their mid teens to early twenties. Police are advising young women to remain attentive and aware of their surroundings, and to not hesitate to call 911 if they are feeling unsafe. “Both Saanich Police and the Victoria Police Department are concerned about these incidents,� said Saanich Police acting Sgt. Jereme Leslie, adding BC Transit is aware of the incidents and is

working with police. “Safety of all people in our community is paramount.� The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 40 years old, fivefoot-eight to six-feet tall, average build with a ruddy/pock marked complexion.

Saanich cyclist on the ride of his life Travis Paterson News Staff

While most of the South Island paid little attention to the recently announced routes of the 2016 Giro d’Italia and Tour de France, Saanich cyclist Jordan Landolt did the same. The difference is that Landolt will actually be on some of those routes this summer. The 28-year-old spends the summer and fall season every year guiding “cyclist guests” through the scenic stages of all three Grand Tours (Italy, France and Spain) as a seasonal bike tour guide for Trek Travel.

“We are known as tour guides but are also luggage sherpas, language translators, shuttle drivers, wine connoisseurs, local historians, cycling partners, motivational speakers, bike mechanics, bartenders, problem solvers and just smiling faces making folks comfortable on their bike in a foreign place,” says Landolt, who just finished his fourth year as a guide. It means ignoring the burn of his own legs and lungs and encouraging his physically exhausted guests (paying customers) to complete the final two kilometres of the gruelling summits of a Grand Tour.

Of course Landolt already loved tour cycling when he applied for the job in 2012. The former Saanich Braves junior player had moved on from hockey after a few pro seasons in Switzerland and, still in his early 20s, found long-distance cycling during a three-month trek through the U.S. On a whim he applied to Trek Travel and beat out dozens of contestants in a survivor-type job application scheme.

OUR VIEW

CrimeStoppers a valuable resource It isn’t only men and women in uniform who can curb crime – anyone is capable of contributing. The Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers proves that, year after year. January is Crime Stoppers Month and a fine time to recognize the valuable service that the program provides. Technology has the potential to make things easier on tipsters. Those who witness crimes don’t have to call the tipline from a pay phone and hang up; it’s simpler than ever to submit information electronically – even via your smartphone – and create useful dialogue with law enforcement. Crime will always be troubling for any community, but there are sometimes indicators that the statistics are moving in the right direction. While the overall crime rate tends to fluctuate in different communities, across Canada, the crime rate has been on an overall decline for two decades. There is an argument that society nowadays lacks good, old-fashioned values, and while that may be true, we do possess good, modern values. Forms of abuse and violence that may have been socially accepted in past generations are no longer tolerated. So if we know that crime is intolerable and unacceptable, then it shouldn’t be a stretch to want to be a part of the solution. And that’s where Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers comes in. Whatever the stats show, crime happens and will continue to happen. We often feel powerless as we watch the aftermath of heinous crimes on the evening news, but in our own communities we can make a difference. We can all be deputies, in a way – acting as eyes and ears for police through Crime Stoppers. Hopefully the situation will never arise where we’re anywhere close to a crime in progress. But when it does happen, let’s try to be Crime Stoppers. What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@saanichnews.com or fax 250386-2624.

“There are public health officials that I’ve talked to who say that the co-location of marijuana and liquor sales is not advisable from a public health perspective,” Lake said. “I think whatever we do it has to be highly regulated, quality control has to be excellent and above all we must protect young people.” Yes, liquor stores check ID. But the notion that marijuana might be sold next to beer and vodka in government stores deserves sober second thought, and serious scientific work of the kind that has shown damage to developing brains from teenage marijuana use. Of course all of this urban handwringing over pot stores ignores the de facto legalization that has existed across B.C. for decades. The Nelson Star had a funny story last week about a local woman’s discovery on Google Earth. Zooming in on area mountains, one finds not only the Purcell landmark Loki Peak, but also Weed Peak, Grow Op Peak, Cannabis Peak and Hydroponic Peak. Whatever the source of this cyberprank, it could also be applied to other regions of B.C. For the record, I’ll restate my longstanding position that legalization is the only logical answer. I’ll say the same about other drugs that drive most B.C. crime, but that’s a subject for another day. Tom Fletcher is B.C. legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

LETTERS

Letters to the Editor

Bylaw complaint not a neighbourly way to resolve dispute I’m very concerned about a pattern of incidents recently of people complaining to the Saanich bylaw office about their neighbours without going to see them first directly. This affects myself and friends and neighbours. My story is that I received a visit from a bylaw officer saying a complaint had been received about a pile of junk, a carport (illegal accessory dwelling) and an unlicensed vehicle on the property. I went around with the officer and was assured we were doing all the right things. The junk went to the dump within two days, the carport is being dismantled,

the vehicle had already been removed. But the underlying problems remain. Not of us being bad neighbours, quite the contrary. Other people right around here have junk piles, carports, aggressive dogs, buildings built or renovated without permits, etc. as well as setting off firecrackers overnight, dealing drugs and so on. I don’t try to make their life difficult or, say, prevent their kids from enjoying the treehouse they just made. If I really saw a problem I would go talk with them and see what could be done.  That’s what I did when the

neighbour’s son who sold me a vehicle misled me about repairs done, and then failed to come fix it as promised. That’s why it was sitting there so long. I’m not going to go sue him and make trouble for his parents, unless it’s an absolute last resort and I’ve talked to them and they wash their hands or are hostile. In the end he fessed up, to his credit, it just took a bit of time. A lot of the junk was cleaned up from the park that isn’t even on the property. I didn’t like seeing that and thought others would appreciate it being gone too. I’m not a hero, most people I know around here help each other

Bring end to corporate bailouts As a conservative I believe in the concept of “Laissez-faire,” which is defined as an economic system in which transactions between private parties are free from government interference such as regulations, privileges, tariffs and subsidies. To my mind free trade agreements and corporate bailouts do not qualify since they are legislated by government and thus violate the values that so-called conservatives like Tom Fletcher and his ilk espouse.  In fact, existing tariffs and regulations are not the fault of government but are the direct result of lobbying and influence peddling on the part of corporations.  In a word, bullying. Indeed, economic recessions are deliberately implemented to push an arch-conservative (read neo-conservative or fascist) agenda.  At the very least they are the direct result of incompetence at the highest executive level.  Such corporations should be allowed to fail since they are unable to compete on a playing field that is already level.  The resulting chaos would undoubtedly lead to economic hardship, the collapse of the stock market and plunge many families into dire straits, but the end result would hopefully be a rebirth of democracy and true liberal conservatism in the classic sense.  One can only hope for the collapse of the IMF and World Bank as well, but perhaps some dreams may never come to pass. Danny Roland Saanich

without making a big deal about it. It is so easy for someone to start something and then it degenerates into tit-for-tat. I am writing because you have a key role in helping put a stop to behaviour that can really poison our neighbourhoods here in Saanich. The community is only going to get more diverse and we need to be tolerant. Maybe the city can send out a bylaw newsletter so we all know what the standards are. Until then and after, give people the benefit of the doubt and try to find a solution with them first. Adam Gottlieb Saanich

No rush to learn computers Re: Coding in kindergarten. I am sad to hear that computers will be introduced as young as kindergarten. It’s always been proven that a child can learn quite quickly all they need to know with computers, even starting in Grade 6. The Waldorf School way of teaching honours this as they understand children need to be children and there is already too much ‘screen’ time early on which affects the child in other ways. There needs to be no rush and it definitely isn’t progress to ‘rush’ a child to learn computers. There is so much evidence and more coming showing the harm this does. Please let kids just be kids at least until they are a bit older. Maha Kali Victoria

Appreciating citizens’ efforts I think it fitting that councillors might see to thanking their citizenry at all official gatherings: ie. those that work tirelessly to defend Saanich sovereignty, build Saanich infrastructure, educate Saanich students, heal those Saanichites that are sick and injured etc. I’m assuring them that no “consultation” will be required to determine exactly who that varied group might include and that the “formula” will be simple. This nation is Saanich, and they are welcome. Ryan Gisler Saanich

Cyclist guides tourists over scenic European mountain passes Continued from Page A5

“I flew to Wisconsin with 25 other hopefuls and after a rigorous full-day interview of teambuilding activities, public speaking, bike mechanics, picnic prep and role playing, they narrowed it down to 10 of us,” he said. The rest of the week was spent learning and training, and by the end of the week, seven had jobs, including Landolt. “Five days later I flew to Italy to guide my first trip in the Dolomites at the Giro D’italia. That year, Ryder Hesjedal won and I had no idea who he was.” By 2013, Landolt was heavy into guiding – doing it 10 months of the year – and was beginning to take cycling seriously enough that he might consider racing. It happened during an

impromptu ride during a day off in Mallorca, Spain in 2013. “I was riding with another guide and through a mutual friend, we ended up meeting with Gerald Ciolek and Linus Gerdemann, then of African pro team MTN-Quebeka. Not household names here, but the German Ciolek wasn’t popular in Italy when he won the historic 2013 Milan San Remo (a race won seven times by cycling great Eddy Merckx).” In cycling speak, Ciolek and Gerdemann were in world class form when, according to the code of cycling, Landolt jumped to the front of the group to “take some of the wind for the fellas.” “It was a windy day and on a long flat stretch. As we turned the corner and out of the wind, [Ciolek] looked me up and down from my

Vision Matters Dr. Daisy Tao

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Eyesight and safe driving When we drive, we make most of our decisions on the basis of visual cues: the position of other vehicles and pedestrians, traffic lights, signs, hazard warnings etc. Good vision is crucial to safe driving. Vision for driving involves more than the ability to read the letters on the eye chart (central vision): Peripheral vision, depth perception and colour vision are all important factors which influence our judgment while driving. The Motor Vehicle Branch tests these visual skills when we first apply for a driver’s license. This screening is not a substitute for a full eye examination by a Doctor of Optometry who can prescribe corrective lenses or other treatment, if necessary, and evaluate the health of the eyes. Our eyes change in subtle and gradual ways as we age. We may not realize our vision has gradually deteriorated to a level that does not meet the legal and safe requirements for operating a motor vehicle. In many cases, the solution may be as simple as, www.oakbayoptometry.com new prescription lenses. Dr. Neil Paterson Glare is a common problem to most drivers when the sun is low in the sky ahead and when the road Dr. Suzanne Sutter surface is wet and shiny. Sunglasses may help, along Optometrists with cleaning your windshield.100-2067 Another cause of glare may be cataracts, which can develop Cadboro Bay Rd.as we age.

Amiri (Pacific Cycling Centre). Although tour guiding is mostly at a recreational pace, it also can provide some good impromptu training intervals, Landolt said, such as chasing down a lost guest who missed a turn or pushing a physically and mentally depleted guest the last two kilometres of Italy’s Stelvio (a climb so gruelling it’s only been in the Giro d’Italia four times). Climbing the Stelvio, for those unaware,

isn’t a Sunday ride. It’s the highest summit of all the Grand Tour. “[Our] experience gets you so close you feel like you are part of it… cycling through the flocks of fans en route to the finish line just hours before the pro peleton.” From there, the guests take a turn standing on the official podium before grabbing a cold beer and watching the nailbiting final kilometres on TV before the stage winners cross the line just meters away. “Working as a

guide with Trek Travel has taught me the foundations of cycling…” Landolt said. “More than anything it has taught me to challenge myself and to do things that scare me and feel the satisfaction of completing them or at least having the courage to try them. The 2014 B.C. ITT was a memorable and satisfying day for me, but first, or last, I would have been just as proud and content at the fact that I was there and gave it a shot.”

“Amiri provided the necessary fine tuning and training [that led to] winning the B.C. time trial,” Landolt said. Even if Landolt never wins another race, he can’t downplay a fateful moment like that. Later that summer Curtis Dearden of the Accent Inn/ Russ Hays team won the Canadian national time trial championship. Landolt had the motivation and the service of coach and mentor Houshang

Then in 2014, Landolt won the 2014 B.C. elite time trial cycling championship. Not bad for recreational tour guide.

BBB outlines scams to watch out for The Better Business Bureau of Vancouver Island is getting the word out on the top 10 frauds and scams to watch for in 2016. The BBB has put together a list of the most reported scams of 2015 and is offering tips on how consumers can protect themselves from becoming a victim. CRA Collection Scam – Aggressive telemarketers pretending to represent the Canadian Revenue Agency used aggressive and threatening tactics to scare taxpayers into paying a fictitious tax return debt. Victims were told they must make payment immediately by credit card (regular or pre-paid) or face court charges, jail or deportation. Consumer Tip: Know that the CRA will never request payment for taxes by a prepaid credit card, nor will they ask you for private information that you would not already have included on your tax return such as your passport, health card or driver’s licence numbers. CRA will never leave personal information in a message, nor ask you to leave a message containing personal information.

Unclaimed Prize Scam – Automated phone recordings pretending to come from legitimate airlines, hotels or vacation booking agents lured consumers into believing they were eligible to win a vacation prize. When consumers tried to claim the prize they were connected to an operator that insisted on acquiring personal and credit card information in order to secure the winnings. No prize winnings were ever received. Consumer Tip: Before giving out any personal information to “claim” a prize, ask to see the details of the prize in writing and carefully read the fine print. Some vacation prize giveaways may cost you more than you are willing to pay. Computer Virus Telemarketing Scam – Consumers were aggressively targeted (by phone, email and online pop-ups) by fraudsters who inform them that their computer had been infected with a virus. In order to “fix” the problem, the victim is directed to a website, asked to provide their credit card information as payment, and told to download an anti-virus program. Consumer Tip: Computer manufacturers will not contact you to let you know if there is a problem with your computer. Computer upgrades, maintenance and virus scanning are the responsibility of the computer owner. Treat all unsolicited contact with skepticism. Imposters Phishing Scam – Many computer virus and phishing scams masquerade as the emails or websites of legitimate businesses and organizations. Using the logo and good name of reputable charities, non-profits, banks, government agencies and businesses, scam artists send out a variety of legitimate looking, but fake links designed for you to click on so that they can install malware on your computer or steal your private information (such as passwords and account information). Consumer Tip: Never open an email, click on any links, or download any files unless you are certain you understand the reason you are receiving the email. If at any time you think you might have become the victim of a phishing or other computer, email or Internet scam, be sure to have your computer scanned by a trusted computer repair professional to see if any malware is present. Vacation Rental Scam – Tourists renting condos or homes from private individuals found themselves out-of-luck and out of money when vacation rentals were fake, in disrepair, promised more than they offered or were unexpectedly canceled with no refund. Consumer Tip: To avoid vacation nightmares, consumers should do careful research and work with a reliable professional rental agent to locate a vacation home rental. Get everything in writing and carefully read the fine print before making a deposit. Whenever possible pay with a credit card. Fraudulent Kiosk Vendor – Customers reported dissatisfaction with products and services provided by transient kiosk vendors. Often found at markets, festivals, fairs and shopping plazas, kiosk vendors represent a wise range of large and small businesses, some legitimate and some not. A scammer, operating a temporary kiosk and using the name of a legitimate business, tricked victims into paying for services that were never rendered. Consumer Tip: Before you make a purchase at a kiosk be sure to ask about how you can contact the vendor should you need to. Ask them about their return and exchange policy. Be sure to get a written receipt that clearly outlines the product you are purchasing and the vendors contact information. Smishing (SMS Phishing) – Bogus text messages are sent to victims in attempt to lure them into unknowingly agreeing to accept large monthly charges to their credit card or downloading a virus, or malware onto their smart phone or other mobile devices. Consumer Tip: Don’t take the bait. Stay away from promotions with phrases like “exclusive,” “shocking” or “sensational” footage. Don’t click on any links in a text unless you are certain where it is going or what it is that you will be downloading. Don’t respond to text messages from unknown sources. Don’t fall for texted opportunities to win a prize.

SAANICH SAANICH NEWS NEWS -- Wednesday, Wednesday,January January27, 27,2016 2016 

Seeds: The paradox of choice Walk-In Denture Clinic The seed catalogues have begun to arrive. They slip through the mail slot, land in piles in the hall, then migrate around the house. Like a scene from Privet Drive, they come unabated, incessantly, and I stack and read and stack again – flower glossies, full-colour vegetable books, herb lists, booklets, pamphlets, flyers.  Will this be the year for skirret and salsify? Can I fit six varieties of sweet peas or more? There’s a new Scabiosa, an annual Euphorbia, and a ‘Sahara’ Rudbeckia I must try.  How does one decide?  Here’s the trouble with seed catalogues: they push us into the paradox of choice. Why is the affluent 20-year-old thinking of ‘travelling to Europe’ a little miserable when they have all the freedom in the world? Why do we suddenly seize up when presented with 10 different styles of jeans? We can’t choose. We grow unhappy when presented too much choice. Gardening maximizers be warned: ’tis the season for indoor angst. So when faced with abundance (at $3 a packet, seeds make for exceptional fantasy fodder), my seed strategy is this: I write down everything I want. I fill in forms in pen. Really commit, in ink. Then I forget about the list for a while, look at it again, and call the company to speak to a real person, who does all the work of tallying up and shipping, tells me my total, waits for me to balk, and then I pare back my order with the benefit of their computer and my

shame. Seeds are a big subject, but here’s one guiding principle to follow as the catalogues roll in: only order from companies or growers that have climates similar to own. My definition of ‘similar’ is broadly self-serving: I use Seedaholic from Ireland, Floret from

Washington, Owl’s Acres, Chiltern and Sarah Raven from England for flowers, and West Coast Seeds from Delta for salad greens. Locally, I buy seeds from Saltspring Seeds and Metchosin Farm. I try – desperately at times – to avoid heirloom seeds from exotic locations: they just aren’t adapted to our environment and despite worthy urges to support open-pollinated varieties and genetic diversity, your money is better spent by donation to a botanic garden, seed bank or heirloom protection project. Want to grow an ancient grain or groovy gourd this year? Resist unless

you can find the seed locally. Read packets. Investigate companies. Old open-pollinated varieties of seed are the most stable (true to type), and if they come from a maritime climate like ours, you’ll increase your chance of success. And if you do succumb and buy too much this spring, remember you’ve got a few years to use the seeds you didn’t sow. If kept cool and dry, seeds will last a few years, at least. Best dig out that shoebox from last year and see what you have saved before you spend. Christin Geall teaches creative nonfiction at the University of Victoria and is an avid gardener.

Company C heads Into the Woods Christine van Reeuwyk Black Press

Company C turns fairy tales on their ears in its third production of the season. The Canadian College of the Performing Arts’ third-yearstudent performance company pitches Into the Woods on stage starting Jan. 28. The Stephen Sondheim play reintroduces classic fairy tale characters just after the “and they lived happily ever after.” “It’s not the children’s story version,” said Caitlenn Bull, who for this performance works on sets and plays mom, for both Jack and Cinderella in the performance. “The characters all really have these in-depth sides to them.” Things start rosy and fairytale-like in the first half, said R.J. Peters, production manager and mentor in light design and set design. Then it explores the reality of what the characters’ dreams fulfilled – and the consequences – look like. “It gets a little dark,” Peters said. Into the Woods is directed by renowned Canadian actor and director Sara-Jeanne Hosie. “Sara-Jeanne Hosie, is well known. We were thrilled she was able to come and work

with our students,” Peters said. “This is Into the Woods like you have never seen it before.” Hosie’s credits include Godspell (Arts Club in Vancouver), The Buddy Holly Story (Chemainus Theatre Festival), and My Fair Lady (The Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre). Sarah Carlé, a local musical theatre treasure and alum of 2005’s original Company C that staged Into the Woods, will also make an appearance in the show she first did with CCPA a decade ago. “We’ve come full circle,” Bull said. Quite literally. They’ve constructed twostorey structures to add vignette spaces to the Elgin Road performance hall and borrowed the Belfry’s revolving stage. The audience will fill risers on opposing sides. “We’re doing it in a round in a sense. The audience will really feel immersed,” Bull said. Note that Into the Woods contains scenes of death and some sexual themes. Into the Woods runs Jan. 28 to Feb. 6 in the CCPA performance hall, 1701 Elgin Rd. For tickets and ticket information, visit ccpacanada. com or call the box office at 250-595-9970.

Saanich Seniors

Friends and colleagues gather to celebrate one-of-a-kind premier This coming Sunday, there will be a celebration of the life and times of former Social Credit premier Bill Bennett at the Grand Hotel in Kelowna. I will be there with hundreds of his former colleagues and friends whose lives were impacted by this oneof-a-kind premier. Bennett died last December at age 83. He had been suffering from Alzheimer’s. His struggle with the terrible illness

and Vancouver was not generally Coastal Health. known until two Bennett years ago when announced his family friend retirement from Charles Fipke politics 30 years donated more ago during Expo than $3 million in 86. Many of you Bennett’s name will remember to Alzheimer’s that the years research at the Djavad Brian Kieran preceding Expo were harsh indeed Mowafaghian Seniors and Bennett’s Centre for restraint program, Brain Health, a designed to keep B.C. partnership between the viable through hard UBC Faculty of Medicine

economic times, earned the premier very few friends at the time. In fact, Bennett was basically losing the 1983 provincial election until NDP leader Dave Barrett, campaigning in the West Kootenay as I recall, told reporters he would dismantle the restraint program. Apparently, voters understood that the hardships imposed on them were worth the shortterm pain. Back in those days I had the greatest job in B.C., political reporter for the Vancouver Sun posted to the Legislative Press Gallery. Covering Bennett was a challenge. He had little use for sound bites and photo-ops. He was terse, rather than eloquent. Looking back I have to chuckle at Bennett’s deft ability to leave the media standing in the rain whenever he could. Caring little for another combative question about the impacts of restraint the premier discovered that he could escape the media by sending his press secretary, Hal Lieren, out to schmooze the press gallery scrum in

the driveway outside the West Annex while Bennett made his escape through the Legislature’s labyrinth of basement corridors to join his driver at the “CNIB Stand” at the East Annex. One afternoon, when I realized what was happening, the premier and I had a foot race through the basement hallways. The only reason I caught him was because the athletic premier had a terrible cold. Back in those bays my idea of exercise was a block long walk to the bar after work. So, there we were, leaning against the concrete wall wheezing, red-faced and speechless. A great moment for Politics vs the Fourth Estate. In a tribute to Bennett in 2011, former attorney general Brian Smith said: “Bennett’s personal qualities often were under appreciated during his time in office. He was not a natural orator and television sold him short. “As a friend and later as a cabinet colleague, I knew him to be warm and funny and ferociously loyal. He did not dump colleagues who were in trouble. He

stuck by them, as his father had done before him.” Smith recalled that Bennett could also crack the whip when his ministers drifted. “When the cabinet seemed captivated by a large new spending initiative, the premier called for a cabinet vote. Everyone voted for the scheme. Bennett said: ‘Ayes - 21 and Nays -1. I see the nays have it.’ We all laughed for a long time and the program died.” In 2007, Bennet received the Order of B.C. He was praised for leading our province through a challenging economic time and left office with the province poised for success in a modern, global economy. Bennett’s legacy has stood the test of time. He is remembered as a builder and an optimist who always had an upbeat vision for British Columbia. The family says that donations in Bennett’s memory can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society, Suite 307 -1664 Richter Street, Kelowna, V1Y 8N3. Brian Kieran is a veteran journalist and communications specialist.

Ask the Expert Seniors Edition

Q: I and many of my friends find the different names associated with private pay retirement communities very confusing. Can you simplfy?

A: You

are not alone. This information bears repeating as retirement communities receive inquiries daily, from clients requiring clarification/ understanding of the various options – Independent Living, Assisted Living or Complex Care. Independent Living (IL) communities are for seniors who are completely independent, managing their activities of daily living and seeking ‘hospitality services’ such as meals, laundry, cleaning, social and recreational programs, emergency response, transportation, etc. Their month to month rental suites vary in size and most are equipped with kitchenettes.

Make it a special day

Saturday, February 6th, 2pm – 4 pm Spend some quality time with your loved ones at our Family Day Celebration. Come out to enjoy live musical entertainment and have your portrait sketched by Caricaturist John Beveridge while we celebrate the day in the company of new friends.

Tours also available.

Call to RSVP today!

Complex Care (CC) communities are staffed 24/7 with RN’s or LPN’s, RCA’s and other licensed professionals, providing services such as medication administration, bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, prompting/cuing, etc. ‘CC’ communities may be either a one person assist, or, a two person assist with appropriate heavy lift equipment. They may or may not be a locked community. All clients are assessed prior to admittance.

Join us for our Family Day Celebration at Parkwood Place by Revera.

Assisted Living (AL) communities offer all of the above as well as, at additional cost, personal care assistance with services such as medication monitoring/reminders, assistance with dressing, bathing, compression stockings, etc. You will find many ‘IL’ communities offer ‘AL’ services as well. Some communities advertise as strictly ‘AL’ communities and some communities offer the full continuum lifestyle : ‘IL’ , ‘AL’ and Complex Care ‘CC’ .

What also bears repeating regularly – be proactive and don’t wait for a crisis!

THE BIGGEST CHINESE BUFFET RESTAURANT IN VICTORIA!

SUPER CHOICE DINNER

Dan Ebenal/News Staff

Chuck Pusateri stands outside the Hillside Seniors Health Centre, which houses courses is cardiac health put on the the Heart to Heart program.

*Dinner included Spring rolls or Curry beef rolls

Courses get to the heart of the matter Dan Ebenal News Staff

When Chuck Pusateri had a heart attack, questions whirled through his brain. The 41-year-old father of three had no health problems when the heart attack struck, leaving him wondering about changing his diet and how he exercised, how he could reduce stress, whether he should change jobs and just how much longer was his life going to be. “There was just a whole myriad of things that went through my head.” Pusateri found many of the answers through Island Heart to Heart, an organization he’s still associated with 22 years later. “In fact, I did change jobs to some extent and I did start exercising differently and I did start looking at food differently. I sort of started a journey over the last 22 years,” said the Saanich resident. Island Heart To Heart operates out of the Hillside Seniors Health Centre attached to the Aberdeen Hospital, passing along information on the program to cardiac patients

at Island hospitals. “We know that there’s a lot of people who are missed because we don’t get to them in hospital or they don’t hear about it from their doctor so we’re trying to go out to the public and let them know it’s there,” said Pusateri, a director with Island Heart To Heart. The program hosts a series of seven two-hour classes, offered 10 times a year. The classes feature talks from cardiologists, pharmacists, dieticians and others to help provide insight on living with heart disease. “People learn things to help themselves,” said Pusateri, who underwent his third heart surgery back in October. “After five days you leave the hospital and the hospital is very proud to have got you out in five days. But then you get home and you have a recovery – sometimes a long, painful recovery – and you start to look at, what do I do with the rest of my life, what’s the rest of my life going to be like, what can I do to help myself so that I never have to go through that again?” Pusateri said the courses

provide skills and coping mechanisms as well as answers to many of their questions. “Some people have never done any physical activity, they don’t know one side of a rec centre from another,” he said. “How to eat, they’ve been eating the same way for 50 years, how do they become vegetarian? It’s just beyond them. But we kind of get them started through these classes, to pick out some things they can do to change their lives a little bit.” He said the class of 30 or so people is also likely the first time many have been in a roomful of others who understood what they were going through. The course costs $40 for an individual and $60 for a couple for the seven sessions. “It’s not just for people that have had a heart problem,” said Pusateri. “We have some people in the class who know they have a family history of it and are trying to prevent a heart attack.” For more information on the program, visit the website www. islandhearttoheart.ca.
