Family seeks help after Cordero Lodge break in www.CampbellRiverMirror.com www.CampbellRiverMirror.com
J.R. RARDON BLACK PRESS
The family of a Qualicum Beach man was devastated this week when his remote fishing lodge north of Campbell River suffered $10,000 in theft and extensive damage. Cordero Lodge, located just across Cordero Channel from East Thurlow Island, had been put up for sale last year, around the time that 72-year-old Lorrie Tanguay was diagnosed with bladder cancer. “Whoever did this obviously didn’t understand the amount of damage they caused,” said Ken Tanguay, Lorrie’s son. Lorrie Tanguay is at home under palliative nursing care, his son said. He added the family has not shared the news of the theft and damage with their father. “He’s always been a fighter,” Ken Tanguay said. “But I think hearing this would just suck the last bit of energy out of him.” Sayward RCMP are seeking information into the break-in, theft and vandalism. The mooring lines to the floating lodge were then cut and the buildings were left adrift, said Ken Tanguay, who estimated total losses and damage at about $30,000. The damage was discovered Sunday morning by Shaun Tinney, a friend of Tanguay’s who has been looking in on the lodge while it is closed in the off-season. “We just want to get the word out that there’s pirates out there,” said Tinney. “People don’t think there’s pirates on our coast, but they’re out there.”
The gangway at Cordero Lodge was completely destroyed when the site was broken into sometime between Jan. 19 and 29.
Tang u ay s ai d h e believes more than one person was involved, as some of the stolen items would have been too large for a single person to handle. RCMP said the breakin occurred sometime between Jan. 19 and 29. Tanguay believes it took place either Thursday or Friday last week, as the realtor involved with the listing visited Tuesday, Jan. 24, to take photos of the property — including aerial video footage. Under super vision of the Canadian Coast Guard, Tinney lashed the bulk of the lodge to the shoreline temporar-
ily. He and Ken Tanguay have been recruiting interested volunteers for a potential work crew, and Tinney said he was planning to travel back to the lodge Wednesday night to prepare for the work ahead. “I want to snap a whole bunch of pictures and take measurements of what needs to be replaced and built,” Tinney said. “The gangway is completely destroyed, and we’re gonna need a 400-foot piece of twoand-a-half inch braided rope to get everything secured in place again.” The lodge is only accessible by boat and is 30
minutes to an hour away from the Browns Bay launches. Tanguay said his father purchased the property in May of 2015 both as a business and a retirement getaway. “This was his dream,” said Tanguay. “When he learned he was sick he said, ‘I like this place. I’d rather sell my house in Qualicum and move up here.” The family has set up a Go Fund Me page, with donations going to materials, repairs, replacement of goods and equipment stolen in the theft. It is also asking for trades people willing to donate time to join a work party to help rescue the lodge so family members can remain near their father’s bedside. Contact information and links can be found through the Cordero Lodge Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ CoderoLodge (Cordero misspelled in URL). Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the Sayward RCMP at 250-282-5522, or place an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

a living history documentary. “It is amazing how smoothly they work, how they can see that vision in the wood and bring it to life,” said Sandra Parish, executive director at the museum. Henderson did his first carving at sevenyears-old. He was 16 when his father carved the centennial pole and he did the painting for the project. Everything he knows he learned from his father and now he is passing on his knowl-
edge to his nephew. “I know dad would be very proud of us, what we reincarnated of his work,” Henderson said. Working from photos of the original pole, Henderson and Junior replicated it as best they could. Though Henderson wouldn’t usually paint the entire pole white, the original pole had a white background and he wanted them to be as close as possible. “I never did like the white background on the old poles,” he said. “I’d rather just have the wood, but when I did

the colouring on it it turned out perfect.” Throughout the process Henderson felt connected not only to his father, but to his brother Mark as well, who Henderson said would have been involved in the project if he was still around. In a back room at the carving shop he found paints that Mark had picked out for a project and decided to use them on the pole. “There was just enough for us to finish the pole, it worked out really neat,” he said. The thunderbird and
the bear are the crests of Henderson’s mother’s family, the Quocksisters. He said there are many stories associated with the thunderbird. It came down from the peaks of mountains and was so powerful it could pick up a killer whale and when it flapped its wings it sounded like thunder. Henderson and Parish are planning to raise the pole on May 20, the day before Sam Henderson’s birthday. “I can’t wait until it goes up,” Bill said. “It came full circle and back to life.”

That revitalization will include upgrading the course design, creating a new practice area and the addition of a driving range. “Golf itself will only be a portion of the experience,” says Amanda Raleigh, Kris’ daughter. The current clubhouse will be renovated to provide new dining experiences, upgraded meeting rooms and banquet facilities. The potential addition of a spa and wellness centre
and retail options will be contributing factors to creating the new total club experience. “We plan on keeping the club a familyfocused experience,” says Cheryl Mailman, Kris’ wife.

he Brown family has announced the sale of Sequoia Springs Golf Course to the Mailman family. The completion of the sale is set for March 1, 2017. After 41 years of owning and managing Sequoia Springs, the Browns say they are happy to have the golf course going to another long-time Campbell River family. “Keeping the business in the community was really important to us,” says Linda Brown, Sequoia Springs owner, “and we couldn’t be happier to have the Mailman family taking over the club.” The Brown family purchased the Glen Alder Golf Course in 1976 with partners Jim and Julie Camp. At the time when they acquired the course it was only nine holes. In 1986, the Browns renamed the course Sequoia Springs and expanded it to 18 holes. “This business was always a labour of love for my dad,” says Craig Brown, Sequoia Springs manager, referring to his late father Barrie Brown, who passed away in 2013. “He did everything around here

Premier Christy Clark’s “jobs plan” propaganda is gearing up for another election, complete with heavy-rotation TV ads assuring B.C. hockey and football fans that “our opportunity is here.” The stated purpose of these feel-good ads is to highlight overdue investments in trades and technical education, and extol the virtues of the government’s housing policies. The jobs plan has been Clark’s marketing vehicle since she assumed the leadership of the BC Liberal Party in 2011. It was inspired by former prime minister Stephen Harper’s “economic action plan,” faded billboards for which can still be seen around B.C. This marketing must work regardless of government ideology, because Alberta NDP Premier Rachel Notley now has an “Alberta jobs plan” that also involves her standing in front of smiling people wearing hardhats. Unfortunately, in most areas of B.C. as well as Alberta, what’s lacking are actual jobs. Clark constantly repeats the figure of 191,000 net new jobs in B.C. in the past five years, and glosses

over the fact that all of that job growth has occurred in southwest urban areas around Vancouver and Victoria. The rest of the province has seen a net loss of jobs. Mills and mines have shut down or reduced production, and the gas fields of the northeast hit a low ebb with a series of delays to liquefied natural gas export proposals. There is recovery in energy and commodity markets. I’m assured by Dawson Creek Mayor Dale Bumstead among others that drill rigs are returning to the Montney shale, a rich source of petroleum liquids that can be mixed with the Alberta heavy oil that will eventually start moving south and west in greater quantities. The forest industry is in uncertain times, with declining timber supply and U.S. trade threats, and it’s looking for a break from the B.C. gov-

ernment in the pre-election budget that will be revealed in February. A legacy of B.C.’s resurrected provincial sales tax is that we’re the only B.C. place left in Canada where PST is charged on electricity bills. And for all of Clark’s rhetoric about the lowest personal income taxes, the business tax environment is not attractive. According to the government’s own Commission on Tax Competitiveness, sales tax still lands on most machinery and equipment, for which B.C. has the third lowest investment rate in the country. Combining corporate income tax, sales tax and non-residential property tax, B.C. comes in well above the national average, with a “marginal effective tax rate” of 27.9 per cent compared to 18.9 per cent for the rest of Canada. In the urban southwest, there is a building boom, an increase

As the world watches the nation that has come to represent freedom and liberty turn its back on those it once inspired, the focus turns to Canada in hopes that we can fill the void. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.” These words inscribed on a plaque at the foot of the Statue of Liberty, welcoming refugees to America’s shores for more than 130 years, now ring empty and meaningless – drenched in an irony created by the actions of the new American president. U.S. President Donald Trump implemented a 90-day ban on travellers from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and sparking large We say: Canada Yemen, spontaneous protests at must continue to airports across the U.S. Apart from the fact that hold the moral these seven countries are high ground predominantly Muslim, there would appear to be little other rationale for a ban. The majority of those who have brought terror to America’s shores were citizens of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. Yet those countries are excluded from the ban. Coincidently, President Trump has business interests in those two countries and not the seven subject to the ban. But let us be clear, we are not opposing the ban because it takes aim at the wrong nations, but because the mere notion of the ban is counterproductive. After all, armed toddlers are responsible for exponentially more American deaths than Islamic jihadist immigrants. The main thing the travel ban has accomplished is allow those who do wish to expand the reach of terror to argue that the West has turned its back on Islam, greatly aiding their recruitment efforts. Canada has taken a diametrically opposed stance to the ban imposed by the U.S. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to the American president’s preferred form of communication to tweet out: “To those fleeing persecution, terror and war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength. #WelcomeToCanada.” As the American president throws old alliances into turmoil, it is important that Canada reassure an anxious world that this nation’s principles still endure. – Black Press
in service and technology jobs and steeply increasing cost of living driven by real estate prices. So we have areas with jobs but no place to live, and areas with cheap housing and no jobs. The latest official version of Clark’s “jobs plan” was rolled out last week. The deadline for three LNG plants moves to construction underway by 2020, and mine opening and expansion goals are also kicked down the road. The new headliner is “innovation,” with UBC president Santa Ono heading an effort to stimulate growth of new technology businesses through university research. There will also be a “climate action” jobs plan, which seems even more vague. My guess is, look for lots of tree planting as well as paving this spring. I wish I could tell you the NDP opposition has a clearer strategy for 2017, but so far that’s not the case. More on that in a subsequent column.

At that point we were wishing for the rain again. At least we could ride in the mud, but this snow was killing any chance to ride in the trails. Just a few weeks ago the trails were still buried in snow and not nice snow either. There were
trails instead. The traction was awesome, the trails were rolling fast and we had some of the best January conditions I have ever seen. None of us knows how long this will last, but maybe we’re getting rewarded for suffering through the tragic 2016 with a very early 2017 Spring, and a bunch of hero dirt. I’m crossing my fingers that it stays this way through Summer, but just in case it turns ugly again, I’m riding as much as I can right now on all my favourite trails. I’m James Durand and I’m Goin’ Ridin’...

Fishing Corner with
The long month of January is over and the fishing activity has picked up a little between Port Hardy and Courtenay and with Campbell River in the middle, few anglers have ventured south to fish the Stamp River. The Stamp River has one of the largest returns of winter steelhead in the province. Already in the past few months there has been a steady stream of anglers hit the Stamp in hopes of catching a steelhead by using fly or spinning gear. A fly pattern that has had great success is a Popsicle fly made of purple and pink or red marabou with some flash added. For those who want to fish closer to home can fish the Campbell River in the upper region and fly fishing only but those who fish the Quinsam are finding fish and the pressure should pick up later in the month. Expect the Gold and Salmon rivers to see more anglers fishing in weeks to come. The Salmon has big fish and

is more of a challenge as the canyon areas are hard to get to but the locals know the pools and keep them secret As for saltwater fishing for winter springs in the Campbell River area, those getting out to the Hump and Lighthouse are reporting fair fishing for undersize salmon and the larger salmon are in areas north and east of Quadra Island. Shelter Point has been okay and larger salmon can be caught. There has been some good fishing north of Denman Island and the bait should be around. The switch

Many lakes are still covered with ice and more warmer weather and wind will be needed to gets things ice free. There are lakes that don’t get iced over and if you can fish from shore using Power Bait or gulp eggs and even worms you can get fish.

Voters are rattling their cages Some of the most important insights we have learned about ourselves have come from studying animals, particularly the social ones such as primates, elephants, dolphins and corvids. This was profoundly illustrated in an experiment done with capuchin monkeys by the Dutch-American primatologist, Frans de Waal (Guardian Weekly, Oct. 28/16). De Waal’s experiment, described in his book, Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are?, and presented in a TED talk, was illuminating. Two capuchin monkeys were rewarded with a piece of cucumber for learning to do the same simple task. The capuchins, situated in adjoining cages so they could see each other, happily engaged in the game, routinely doing their task and each getting their piece of cucumber. Then the researcher changed the game. One of the capuchins, instead of getting a piece of cucumber, was rewarded with a grape, regarded by

be fair. Wealth and benefits are not being distributed equally — the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, and the middle class is shrinking. The economic system has been breaking the social contract, and the voters responded with the equivalent of a capuchin tantrum. All the political pundits who were bewildered by the outcome should have been attentive to such people as a 68-year-old retired carpenter, Edward Tucker, living in the unemployed industrial heartland of America. “I think Trump is nuts, but I’d love to have him as president to see what happens,” he said. “I wouldn’t want to end up in some kind of war or anything,” he added. “But something is going to change if [Trump] is president. We just don’t know what” (Ibid., Nov. 18/16). The change they want is to a system that is violating their fundamental sense of social fairness. So the voters are rattling their cages and throwing cucumbers.

More street banners to go up in Campbellton KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
T h e C a mp b e l lt on Neighbourhood Association is planning to expand its banner program this year. The group intends to use part of its annual beautification grant, which is given to the association by the City of Campbell River, to put up at least 20 banners. The two-sided salmon art banners are slated
for light posts along 14th Avenue between the Eagles building and Petersen Road, and along 16th Avenue between Tamarac and Petersen. “The art represents the mighty Campbell River, a world class asset to the city and North Island,” wrote the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association in a letter to city council. The banners will expand on a program the association under-
includes new garden beds, deer fencing and signage. T h e C a mp b e l lt on Neighbourhood Association has completed a second phase at the community garden, which has added 21 new garden beds. One of those is dedicated as a community herb bed, which yields herbs for all the garden-
took in 2015 when it erected 40 fish banners around Tamarac and Willow streets. The current project is expected to cost $8,000 which is to be funded through the beautification grant, approved in principle by city council last week. The grant, which totals $10,000, will also be put towards improving and expanding the association’s community garden at the 15th Street Park in Campbellton. Work

Former franchise owner goes into business for himself JOCELYN DOLL CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Jason Zotek stepped away from his job as a heavy duty mechanic in Fort McMurray two and a half years ago because of an injury. He ran the Jiffy Lube in Courtenay for awhile after that but didn’t enjoy it. “I just didn’t want to work for the franchise stores anymore, I decided I wanted to do something myself,” he said. Following in the footsteps of a friend in Leduc, Alta., Zotek decided to open a butcher shop in Campbell River. At JKs Local Meat Cave customers will find a variety of meats, premade food like pot pies and perogies, and goods like honey, mustard and pickles. “It is as local as possible,” Zotek said. All of the meat is sourced from the Black Creek area and the other products are from the Island or the Lower Mainland. This week they were

starting to make sausage and Zotek is waiting to get approval from Island Health so he can smoke meat on the property. The plan is to eventu-
ally be selling fresh fish and other sea food as well. And when he has the equipment for it, he will be able to process wild
game for the hunters in the area. “I am looking forward to this venture for sure,” he said. “It is a little nerve wracking.”
The K in JKs Local Meat Cave stands for Kelly Everill, Zotek’s fiancé and creator of both the logo and the catch phrase.
“When I was ready to give up she was my strength, she stood beside me,” Zotek said. With his friend’s shop in Leduc to inspire him,
Zotek designed the meat cave to be welcoming and homey, choosing light colours and installing a fire place on the wall. He said that his business partner, JR Justesen, told him he hasn’t seen anyone’s vision come to life so exactly. The shop is located in the strip mall in the same parking lot as Home Depot at 1270 Dogwood St. After only being open since Jan. 19, Zotek is already making plans for expanding into the other half of the space he has leased. Zotek is also more than willing to get involved with the community. He was already approached by the fire department for a donation for an upcoming event where the proceeds will go to support people with muscular dystrophy. “Getting to know all these people and suppliers and stuff is really good,” he said. “My suppliers are good to me so I try to pay that forward to the customers as well.”

In January 2017, 245 single-family homes sold on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) System compared to 258 last January, a decrease of five per cent. Sales were virtually unchanged from December, which saw 243 sales. VIREB attributes this static sales activity to inventory challenges rather than insufficient demand. Active listings of single-family homes did increase by four per cent in January to 893 from December’s 852, which typically happens at the beginning of the year, with 389 properties coming onto the market last month. However, inventory is still down by 38 per cent from one year ago, a significant reduction from the 1,431 available properties in January 2016.
The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that housing demand in the VIREB area and t hroug hout Br it ish Columbia is being driven by a provincial economy that continues to outperform the rest of Canada. Although BCREA does expect B.C.’s economy to weaken somewhat this year, strong job and population growth will continue to have a net positive effect on the housing market. “Although BCREA anticipates that less robust economic conditions combined with government policy constraints will slow housing demand by more than 15 per cent in 2017, unit sales should remain well above the 10-year average of 85,000,” says Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief
Economist. “Sales in the VIREB area this year will likely trend lower than in 2016, but this is merely the market returning to more normal levels from last year’s unprecedented sales activity.” Janice Stromar, 2017 VIREB President, reaffirms that housing sales in the VIREB area would be much higher if there were more homes available. “We’ve been in a sellers’ market for several months now, with buyers snapping up available properties and multiple offers a common occurrence,” says Stromar. “But real estate is cyclical, and these conditions won’t last forever. If you’ve been thinking of selling, I strongly encourage you to take advantage of our current market situation.”

Physical Literacy in Kids: Move more and sit less
by: Sophia Sauter, Registered Sports Physiotherapist, Owner of Active Living Physiotherapy, and active mother of two young active boys.
Most of us have heard by now that the rates of childhood obesity and inactivity are clearly on the rise. In order to prevent a generation of children growing up with chronic health problems we must take action NOW. Research shows that being physically active later in life depends on feeling confident in an activity setting; and that confidence, as an adult, most often comes from having learned fundamental movement and sport skills as a child. Canadian 24 hour Movement Guidelines (from the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology or CSEP) for children and youth are a great starting point to guide children's activity levels: For optimal health benefits, children and youth (aged 5-17 years) should achieve high
levels of physical activity, low levels of sedentary behaviour, and sufficient sleep each day. A healthy 24 hours includes:
those aged 5-13 years and 8 to 10 hours per night for those aged 14-17 years, with consistent bed and wake-up times;
SWEAT: MODERATE TO VIGOROUS PHYSICAL ACTIVITY An accumulation of at least 60 minutes per day of moderate to vigorous physical activity involving a variety of aerobic activities. Vigorous physical activities, and muscle and bone strengthening activities should each be incorporated at least 3 days per week;
SIT: SEDENTARY BEHAVIOUR
STEP: LIGHT PHYSICAL ACTIVITY Several hours of a variety of structured and unstructured light physical activities; SLEEP
Uninterrupted 9 to 12 hours of sleep per night for

Our children need to move more and sit less. Furthermore, to create a future active and healthy population, children need a sound foundation of movement and sport skills to build on later in life; this foundation is called Physical Literacy. The learning and practice of fundamental movement skills is the basic building block for the development of physical literacy. Much like learning the alphabet and phonics are the fundamental skills needed to eventually read, or recognizing numbers
and learning to add and subtract are the fundamental skills needed to eventually have an understanding of currency, the development of fundamental movement skills and sport skills, is critical if children are to feel confident when they engage in physical activity for fun and for health, or for competition and the pursuit of excellence. Research shows that without the development of physical literacy, many children and youth withdraw from physical activity and sport and turn to more inactive and/or unhealthy choices during their leisure time. Physical Literacy: What Exactly is it? Physical literacy is the development of fundamental movement skills (like running, throwing, catching, sliding, landing, skating/skiing, swimming and jumping) and fundamental sport skills (like throwing a good pitch, landing a ski jump, and completing a basketball lay-up) that permit a child to move confidently and with control. Physical literacy also includes the ability to “read” what is going on around them in an activity

setting and react appropriately to those events. For full physical literacy children should learn fundamental movement and sport skills in each of the four basic environments: On the ground – as the basis for most games, sports, dance and physical activities In the water – as the basis for all aquatic activities On snow and ice – as the basis for all winter sliding activities In the air – basis for gymnastics, diving and other aerial activities Parents and caregivers play a crucial role in ensuring that their child is provided with ample opportunities to develop physical literacy, starting right from birth. What you can do: 1) Ensure your child has access to a quality physical education program. Quality physical education provides the most accessible opportunity for a child to develop physical literacy since physical education has the means to reach EVERY child in Canada, regardless of
age, ability, socio-economic status, gender, or culture. PHE Canada has a great check-list for parents: www.phecanada. ca/programs/physical-literacy/ information-parents/whatyou-can-do-0 2) Enrol your child in community recreation and sport programs to increase opportunities to develop physical literacy. When selecting programs, try to find those programs that cover a range of skills, rather than single sport programs. To develop a child's ABCs -agility, balance, coordination and speed- an important part of physical literacy, most experts recommend gymnastics, track and field, swimming, skating or skiing, soccer and cycling. Most importantly, select activities that your child enjoys and wants to participate in to ensure a positive experience and ongoing participation. The emphasis should be on FUN. 3) Children and youth should practice healthy sleep hygiene (habits and practices that are conducive to sleeping well), limit sedentary behaviours (especially screen
time), and participate in a range of physical activities in a variety of environments (e.g., home/school/community; indoors/outdoors; land/water; summer/winter) and contexts (e.g., play, recreation, sport, active transportation, hobbies, and chores). Maybe kids could walk or bike to school? Let them play outside with the neighbourhood kids, and play on the playground after school. Make an effort to integrate physical activity and sport activities into your family lifestyle. This makes for quality family time and studies show that active parents are more apt to have healthy, active kids. Be a great role model and reap the benefits of physical activity for yourself!

What is Amygdala
Submitted by Niels Christensen, Acupuncture & Body Care Clinic The amygdala is a pair of almond shaped clusters of brain cells that determine whether a smell, sound, image, sensation or event is safe or if it is a threat. If a threat is perceived it sends signals to the body creating a fight, flight or freeze reaction. This is a handy evolutionary development for our survival. When our ancestors encountered a Saber Toothed Tiger for the first time the amygdala aided in the quick response to fight or escape the tiger. It and other brain structures, made sure that the memory of this experience was burned into the grey matters of their brains so the next time a flash of yellow appeared in the bush, their response time was immediate. They would kill or escape from the tiger or be killed themselves. The crisis would end and their body’s stress levels would normalize. Furthermore, only Saber Toothed Tigers, and the like, would provoke such a reaction within them. Traumatic life altering incidents like unexpected deaths, childhood abuse and accidents can change our reactions to stimuli that remind us of the trauma. Smelling the perfume of his deceased wife can bring back a flood of memories for a widowed husband. If we imagine that he was baking bread when he received the shocking
news it may be the last time he wants to bake bread. He may even find that the smell of baked bread makes him nauseous or anxious. There is a saying “neurons that fire together, wire together.” The same visceral response happens when we survive other traumatic events. It is common for victims of abuse to respond to reminders of their trauma as if they are waiting for the tiger to return. Over time the tension that their bodies hold may manifest as physical pain like sore shoulders, headaches or stomach upset. The widowed husband may find over time that he has asthmatic reactions on top of the grief that still grips his chest. The good news is that there is help. It may be a combination of approaches that works. Medication, massage, chiropractic, physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture, yoga , meditation and professional counselling are available in this community. Self-education too may help. A good book is “ The Body Keeps The Score” by Bessel Van Der Kolk. When our feelings or the reactions that arise within our bodies do not diminish with time, trauma based counselling may be beneficial. Campbell River is fortunate to have North Island Survivors’ Healing SocietyTrauma and Abuse Counselling Centre. Check out their website www.nishs.ca for more info.

Local groups help update fish and wildlife priorities Local conservation groups, First Nations, local, federal and provincial government agencies, consultants, forestry companies and interested citizens attended a recent workshop hosted by the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP). The Campbell River watershed workshop was a chance for the FWCP to discuss local conservation priorities and potential fish and wildlife projects with people who live and work in the area. “We’re updating our plans to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by BC Hydro dams in the Campbell River watershed and we want to get input on our draft ideas,” explains Julie Fournier, manager of the FWCP’s Coastal Region. “Our next step is to review the ideas we’ve received and consider

which ones are within our mandate and appropriate for us to pursue in the future.” Together, the group of more than 45 talked about fish, wildlife, the watershed and the kinds of projects the FWCP could fund in the future. The discussion identified many areas of interest including invasive species, at-risk species,
and salmon. Participants underscored the need to consider climate change and First Nations traditional knowledge in potential projects. Habitat mapping, purchasing land for conservation purposes, and effectiveness monitoring of restoration activities, such as the placement of spawning gravel in the Elk Falls Canyon and the
Campbell River, were some of the other discussion themes. Proposed actions for this watershed are online and at fwcp.ca. “Many who attended the workshop told us it was a positive discussion and they’re looking forward to the next steps and turning the discussion into action,” says Fournier, adding that the
FWCP’s Coastal Region Board will finalize the draft watershed action plan, which will be available for public comment by spring 2017. Subscribe to FWCP news at fwcp.ca/subscribe to receive updates on the next steps and opportunities to comment on the draft action plan. Since 1999, the FWCP has invested more than $10 million in 200 projects on Vancouver Island. In the Campbell River watershed, the FWCP has invested $5.5
million in 108 fish and wildlife projects. Learn more at fwcp.ca. “Our action plans define the projects we fund and we will have the Campbell River Watershed action plan finalized before we open our annual intake of grant applications in spring
2017,” says Fournier. The FWCP is a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of BC, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations and Public Stakeholders to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by BC Hydro dams.

Stomp the floorboards at the Big Yellow Merville Hall tonight with Lonesome Ace I
t is time to give the Lonesome Ace Stringband some love tonight as they are on a Western Canada tour and are touching down at the Big Yellow Merville hall. The Lonesome Ace Stringband brings grit, skill and abandon to old-time, Appalachian folk songs and fiddle/ banjo tunes. The songs and tunes are of life and all of its occasions: festivals, dances, wars, parties and funerals. The band members are Chris Coole on banjo, John Showman on fiddle and Max Heineman on bass. All three are from The Foggy Hogtown Boys, the band that rocked the
Merville hall two years ago with a bombastic blast of bluegrass. With two albums under their belts, they are now on the road bringing old-time music to today’s old souls and new ears. Their records are done live to tape with no overdubs. They stand right next to each other, playing just like they would be if they were jamming or doing a gig. Chris Coole is a crackerjack banjo picker who has been on the oldtime and roots music scene for going on 20 years. John Showman is known as one of Canada’s finest fiddle players. He’s a strong
and versatile musician known for his work with the FHB, New Country Rehab and Creaking Tree String Quartet. Max Heineman’s powerful and unique voice carries the listener straight to the heart of the music. His bass playing supports and compliments the music perfectly, both driving the rhythm and gliding right along with the melody to give the trio its distinctive sound. The Aces can slide between being a bluegrass band or an oldtime band with remarkable ease and authority. Even a casual listener can tell that the Lonesome Aces owe as much to the country music
The Lonesome Ace Stringband will rock the Big Yellow Merville Hall Feb. 3 with their driving bluegrass sounds.

Relive the moments of the Memphis Flash with hits like Hound Dog, Don’t Be Cruel, Love Me Tender and All Shook Up. Then travel into the 60’s with the hits It’s Now or Never and Viva Las

Donny Edwards performance is so authentic you’ll feel as if you’re watching the King himself. With Edwards’ looks, moves and voice backed by the fabulous
Cadillac Kings band it’s a performance not to be missed. Donny Edwards is an Internationally known, multi award winning veteran entertainer, performing his tribute to The King of Rock n Roll to sold out audiences, worldwide. He is a Las Vegas casino headliner act and is the only Tribute Artist ever

‘Industry takeover’ clips local seniors … and they love it MIKE DAVIES
CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
here’s an empty storefront at the end of the Campbell River Commons mall with a wooden floor and a wall filled mostly with mirrors. Although it’s the furthest space from the Campbell River Seniors’ Centre that’s still inside the mall itself, they use it for some of their programming. On Monday afternoon, however, it was filled by Samantha Hubbard and the ladies from Industry Hair and Body Care who brought their chairs, tables, clippers, scissors, nail polishes and other equipment over to pamper some of the seniors for free. “A lot of seniors can’t afford to go get their hair done or get a manicure, so this is a really special treat for them,” says Linda Tucker, who currently serves as the activities director for the Seniors’ Centre Society. “We had such a big response that I had to draw names to see who would get a spot, because there were just too many who wanted one, and I wanted it to be fair.” Lauren Rice, who is in charge of this initiative and other outreach projects for Industry, says she’s excited about this particular program,
which they are calling, “Industry Takeover.” “The community has given us so much support over the past few years that we really just wanted to show our appreciation for that and give something back,” Rice says. “We love where we live and the people who live here.” Hubbard says they plan on trying to arrange for these “takeovers” with as many organizations as possible – “hopefully about once a month for any business with a charity base that wants to celebrate its staff or the people they serve.” So how did they settle on the Seniors’ Centre for the first one? “We were looking at seniors homes and that kind of thing,” Rice says, “but we didn’t want to take anything away from anybody who may already be going into those places and doing this type of thing, so when we thought of the Seniors’ Centre, we thought it would be the perfect place to come, because we can offer it to a huge range of people from right across Campbell River.” Tucker says the use of the space at the end of the mall the Industry ladies have taken over for the day is one area she’d like to see expand, so when Rice suggested this takeover, she was
more than happy to welcome them. The room is currently only utilized three mornings per week, so there are two more mornings and five afternoons where it sits empty. “This room only gets used for line dancing and yoga, so I’m trying to get different things in here to use the room, and so when this was offered, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to do just that,” Tucker says. As far as what’s next for the Industry ladies, Rice says they’ve got some ideas, but they’re looking for more. “We want to try and do something for different areas of the community over the next few months,” Rice says. “I mean, sometimes it gets a bit crazy busy at the salon in the summer, but we still want to give back as much as we can, so we want to look at different ideas about what we can do to reach out and give back. “We’ve got some really exciting ideas that we’ve been thinking about,” she continues, “but we’re not letting them out of the bag just yet,” she says with a laugh, although she hints that one of them will likely surround breast cancer awareness month in October. Anyone with an idea for increasing the seniors’ program-

MANAGING YOUR MONEY Talking about money is sexy
Financial health – or rather, the lack of it – can be a romance killer. Financial issues are among the biggest reasons why couples split up.* In fact, it’s been estimated that money problems are the prime cause of 90% of divorces**. So, if you’re entering a relationship, already in one, or newly married, how do you talk about what could be the biggest elephant in your emotional room: your personal finances as they are now and as you want them to be through your life together?
The experts tell us that communication, building trust, and honesty are vital keys to healthy relationships***. And that’s why talking about money is sexy – because it’s a very good way to be open and honest with your partner while taking necessary positive steps for building your relationship and a solid financial future together. Here are some tips for successfully integrating your financial lives fairly and in ways that match your shared lifestyle. • Never keep big or small financial secrets! Each of you should disclose assets, financial commitments (such as loans) and credit history. Full disclosure is a must because if you’re considering sharing a credit card or applying for a loan together, your partner’s bad credit history could lead to some unpleasant surprises. • Recognize your differences. You may be a saver; your partner may be a spender – create a financial framework and budget that suits both of you. • Decide if it’s best to maintain separate bank accounts, credit cards and investments or to merge some or all of these financial items to eliminate duplication and enhance financial benefits. (For example, by pooling your investments you may enjoy a more robust portfolio.) Make your decisions with a clear understanding of tax and legal implications. • Decide who will manage day-to-day finances – paying the bills and so on – and who will manage your overall financial affairs. If one or both of you brought personal assets into the relationship – a car or home, for example – should you keep them or sell them?
• Have a frank discussion about how you are going to achieve your financial goals such as buying a home or starting a family. Talk about your finances and financial goals regularly. • A marriage contract or prenuptial agreement isn’t the most romantic notion. But they’re especially important if you want to exclude certain assets from an equalization of family property upon relationship breakdown, like a business or family cottage, or to protect assets for children from a prior relationship. Don’t wait for irreconcilable differences to arise before speaking with a family lawyer. • Plan to save on taxes. Although couples must file separate individual tax returns, there are many tax-planning strategies that can reduce your total tax bill now and in the future. Take advantage of all your deductions and income-splitting opportunities including, where appropriate, pension incomesplitting and/or spousal Registered Retirement Savings Plans (spousal RRSPs), both of which can deliver tax savings. • Arrange life, disability and other insurance coverage to ensure each of you is protected if one partner becomes disabled or dies.
Yes, talking about money is sexy and necessary for the good health of your relationship and financial future together. Your professional advisor can help you build the right financial plan for your shared future. * http://www.huffingtonpost.com/yourtango/10-mostcommon-reasons-people-divorce_b_8086312.html; http:// www.couplescounselingchicago.net/reasons-for-divorce-top10-reasons-marriages-end/ ** https://www.thebalance.com/couples-and-money-1289269 *** American Psychological Association -- http://www.apa. org/helpcenter/healthy-relationships.aspx; https://www. psychologytoday.com/blog/compassion-matters/201506/5ways-build-trust-and-honesty-in-your-relationship

Applying for REEF funds would be 'morally corrupt'
MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The Campbell River School District (SD72) will not pretend to consider closing any of the district’s rural schools just to get the additional funding from the government that it takes to properly operate those facilities. And so, at this week’s public meeting, the board of education voted not to apply for the next intake of the province’s Rural Education Enhancement Fund (REEF). The provincial government recently announced they would again be accepting intake applications for REEF funding – which they implemented last year as a way to help districts keep rural schools open – but the SD72 board says the application criteria to receive the funding is too restrictive and applying for the funds would require toying with the public’s emotions and playing political games. Secretary-Treasurer Kevin Patrick told the board Tuesday night
that Surge Narrows, Quadra, Cortes and Sayward Elementary would all qualify for additional funding from the government should they apply, but there is no telling how much funding they would receive and the board would have to meet one more requirement put forth in the application criteria – that those facilities be under consideration for closure. “To suggest that, so that we can get some more money, we would have a conversation with a community (about potential school closures) when actually our intent is not to close those schools, is morally corrupt, in my mind,” said Trustee Darryl Hagen. Trustee Joyce McMann agreed. “I think we could play the game and say that we’re considering closing the schools for whatever money we’re hoping to gain out of it, but the pain and disruption it would cause and the dishonesty involved in that, I just can’t support.” Trustee Richard Frank-
lin added this grant application requirement and approval criteria is yet another another example of how flawed the government’s funding model is. “It does cost more per pupil to run isolated and rural schools, and the government knows that, but our district, though our 10-Year Facility Plan, made a commitment to keep those schools open for the benefit of those students,” Franklin said. “It’s ironic that the district that has the foresight to make a 10-year plan is now shut out from additional funding from the province. What should be happening here is that the province should know that it costs more to run these rural schools, so the funding for those schools should be commensurably more. It’s unfortunate that we can’t access those funds due to our own foresight, efficiency and effectiveness.” Trustee John Kerr, meanwhile, took that argument one step further, saying he thinks the government put that particular criteria

in place for the funding in order to limit the number of districts who would qualify for the funding. “That condition about the school being at risk for being closed … boxes us out from being to access any of that funding, because I don’t think any of us around this table would be prepared to be dishonest enough to go to a community and tell them we’re considering closing their school just to get our 30 pieces of silver,” Kerr said. “These terms of reference seem very deliberately set to make sure that the minimum number of districts can apply. I mean, we would have justification to apply for four schools to get this funding had that condition that it be considered for closure not been included.” The motion to not apply for REEF funding passed unanimously, with Kerr adding, “I think it’s unfortunate that whatever money is being made available isn’t available to us, but I guess we’ll have to just move on from it.”

Ricky Potter and h i s f i v e - y e a rold son Gregory work on refurbishing a bike they will donate to someone in need within the community.
MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
When a 26-year-old Ricky Potter moved out to Campbell River from Alberta in 2015, he came with his wife, their yearand-a-half-old daughter, their three year-old son, his mother-in-law and that side of the family – and they had very little in terms of physical belongings. But they had each other. And it turns out they’d come to a very generous community. “We just went on Facebook and said we’re a young family who just moved out here from Alberta and we need some help,” Potter says, “and the next thing you know people were, like, ‘I’ve got a TV for you,’ and, ‘I’ve got a couch for you,’ or, ’I’ve got a really nice something you can have for $20.’ The community pretty much set us up.” So now he’s turned to that same platform – social media – to give something back to the community that was so generous to him and his family. “I’m a strong believer in Karma. What goes around comes around, and this is what I see as my opportunity to pay back the good karma that I’ve received,” he says, pulling out his ratchet set
to work on a kid’s bike in his backyard. “I’ve lived a life with some serious lows, so I know what it can be like for people. I’ve been on the streets and I’ve dealt with mental health issues, so I know what life can be like for people and I know that lots of people just can’t afford a couple hundred bucks for a bike. Even $100 for a bike is way too much for some people,” he says. So he launched Double Wheel Customs, a Facebook Page also linked to Instagram and Twitter accounts, and put out a call – the same way he did when his family first got here, except this time looking for bikes and equipment to fix them up for others instead of furnishings for his house. “I’ve been having lots of people say they’ve got bikes for me,” he says excitedly. “There’s a guy coming up from Courtenay with a load the next time he comes up. It’s starting to pick up, for sure. I’m jumping for joy, because this is something I want to do to help people, because I’ve been there on the bottom.” He says he doesn’t have a background in bike repair or anything, but he’s got “people who will come help me if I need it who know more than I do if I need them.” That’s part of what he

likes about the endeavour. He’s also teaching himself a new skill. “I’m just kind of a hands-on kind of guy, I guess.” There’s a selfish aspect to it, as well, however. He’s also using the endeavour to help himself. “I have severe anxiety and working with my hands seems to help with that. I guess I’m turning my mental illness into something that’ll end up helping other people out, and that makes me feel awesome. I guess it’s kinda selfish, in that way, because I’m doing this to help myself while I’m helping other people.” And he’s got the time to do it. He was working as a general labourer for a while after spending a few years in restaurants, but his hearing impairment – which he’s had since birth – has been getting progressively worse, and now, he says, he’s considered a “safety liability” on job sites. “I have about 25 per cent in this ear and maybe 40 per cent in this
ear,” he says. Potter has also started a crowdfunding page on youcaring.com where he is looking for $500 to buy supplies like chain grease, paint and other things to help his efforts. “I’m not looking to make any money off this,” Potter insists. “In fact, I’m putting my own money into it, too. I just don’t have enough to put in for enough stuff like that if I’m going to do this at any serious level.” For more on his efforts, to get in touch about donating supplies or needing a bike, contact him through Facebook by searching Double Wheel Customs. “And it’s not just for kids,” he says. “If there are parents out there who need one because they want to get out there and ride as a family, I’m more than happy to try to make that happen for them, too. I mean, just look around us. There’s no better place to be and no better way to spend time with your family than on two wheels, so if I can help with that, I’m happy.”

The Campbell River environmental organization is moving into its new digs and that has new Office Manager Lydia Stratemann smiling. “Our previous location was a little cramped,” she said. “But the new office has lots of room, making it much better and we even have a meeting area.” That meeting area would seem vital, considering the many projects and organizations with which Greenways is involved – like Baikie Island and the Estuary, school programs, the

Those new friends also include the family of Mark Wunsch, president of the Discovery Passage SeaLife Society (DPSS), who she found out has twice lived in the exact same streets in the same town in Germany prior to their move to Canada. “That was a funny coincidence and the Wunsches really helped a lot,” she said. Stratemann has also been volunteering on the marketing committee of the Aquarium and Explorer Lab since May last year. This was her first step and outreach into the community and she noticed Greenways activities. She said she was amazed at the energy and leadership of the organization. “It’s just amazing, what these people do,” she said. “They are so involved, and care so much about what they do, it’s a little humbling to be a part of it all. And Cynthia (Greenways’ Executive Director, Cynthia Bendickson) is so positive, knowledgable and brings so much to the causes.” With a background in journalism and marketing, Stratemann is ready to reach out to the community and bring the Greenways message forward. And she realizes she
has big shoes to fill. Those shoes belonged to Erin Nowak, who worked with the charity for nine years. “That’s a lot of history and a lot of knowledge and a lot of catching up for me to do,” she said. “But I have great support and that will help a lot.” Greenways mission is to “restore, sustain and protect natural areas and critical habitats, particularly ecological and recreational greenways, for the benefit of our community.” That, said Stratemann, is quite the incentive. “I didn’t quite know what to think of Campbell River at first, but the nature speaks for itself,” she said. “It’s so beautiful and to think I can be a part of doing something that is beneficial to it and will make it better, is inspiring.” Her favourite Campbell River trail? The Canyon View. Her favourite place to be? Rebecca Spit. And her last words in the interview? “Greenways` members are so important,” she said. “It’s only $20 a year, $50 for three years and there’s family memberships. That is a way in which everyone who loves our local greenways as much as we do, can help add energy to a really great cause.”

EILEEN CECILIA (DRADER) ODOWICHUK (1926-2017) Eileen left us peacefully, surrounded by family on January 20, 2017. She was born in Radway, Alberta, on February 11, 1926, to Bert and Ida Drader. In 1934, the Drader family moved to Victoria, where ten years later, at the age of 18, Eileen enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces. In April of 1945, Eileen married Mike Odowichuk. The first of their eight children was born in April of 1946. After moves to Victoria, Campbell River and Needles, BC, Mike and Eileen returned to Campbell River in 1952, where five more children were born and where Mike and Eileen eventually retired. Tailor, quilter, upholsterer, incredible cook, homemaker, toymaker, joke teller, historian, and bold traveler – Eileen’s talents, creativity, skill and courage seemed endless. Her warmth, humor, intelligence and generosity touched generations of relatives, friends and even casual acquaintances. Eileen lived for her family, whom she loved unreservedly and unconditionally. Creative, spontaneous, outspoken and willing to defy convention, Eileen remained true to herself and empowered others to do the same. In adversity, she found the strength to carry on when many would have faltered. She lived life to the fullest and has left behind a wealth of stories, handmade treasures, life lessons and anecdotes. Mom, Grandma, sister, aunt, friend, we are forever grateful for the time spent with you, and for the example you set for us all. Eileen was predeceased her parents Bert and Ida; her husband Mike; sister Nellie and brother Bill; three of her sons, Stephen, Patrick and David; her Grandson Drew and Great Granddaughter Corrina. She is survived by five children: Ron Odowichuk (Judy), Julie Jackson (Gerry), Michael Odowichuk, Jenny Sawatzky (Howard), and Connie Davidson (Barrie). She is also survived by 7 grandchildren: Stefan (Amy), Margo (Evan), Corey (Becca), Gabrielle (Grant), Madeleine (Jay), Bryan (Leanne) and Dylan (Leora), 7 great-grandchildren: Brett, Gavin, Ashley, Shayla, Kieran, Hannah and Wesley; sisters Julie and Flo (Trev), sisters-in-law Rosemarie and Mary, and her dear friends Rosemary and Betty. Eileen’s family offer heartfelt thanks to Dr. Angela Logan, and to the staff at both Ironwood Place and Evergreen Seniors Home, for their incredible patience, care and compassion. A celebration of Eileen’s life will be held in Campbell River, Friday, May 19th, 2017. For those wishing to join us to share memories, please contact any of the “kids” for details. Having lived in Campbell River for over six decades, Mom is certain to have established friendships that we are not even aware of. We would love to hear your stories! In honour of Eileen, please offer a random act of kindness or attempt something that, on another day, you would think impossible. A more complete story of Eileen’s life will be posted at dignitymemorial.com.

Burnice Lucille Davis October 16, 1930 - January 18, 2017
On January 18th, 2017 we lost a Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and dear friend, Burnice Lucille “Lou” Davis who was 86 years old. Born October 16th, 1930 in Brandon Manitoba, Lou later moved to British Columbia and married Russell Scott Davis. Lou is survived by her daughter Gwendolynn, her granddaughter Gwen Adeline and great-granddaughter Jenna, including many distant relatives and friends. Lou was an influential icon in the post war modern women’s rights movement and became the first woman in North America to hold a licensed Blaster’s Certificate. Lou and her husband Russell were engineers in the planning of the world’s largest non-atomic blast in Ripple Rock, Campbell River, BC in 1958. They owned and operated C.I.L. Explosives and Accessories where Lou was a distributor and handler of all types of explosives. After the sudden passing of her husband Russell, Lou went on to build and operate the Lost Erra Resort and Trailer Park in Campbell River, BC from 19701981. Lou retired on her farm in Pritchard, BC and was an active member of The Royal Purple for many decades volunteering countless hours to their charities, fundraising events and functions. Lou played key leadership roles serving as District Deputy, Honored Royal Lady and Secretary. Forever in our hearts and memories, a private service for close friends and family will be held in honor and celebration of her life. A special thank you to Kamloops Funeral Home and Associates. The greatest comfort during sorrow is the expression of sympathy conveyed in many ways. We thank you most sincerely and appreciate your thoughtfulness. Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS DEATHS
Marvin Grant Brimacombe
It is with great sadness that I, Katheryn (Kat) Brimacombe, announce that my husband and best friend, Marvin Grant Brimacombe, passed away late on Sunday, January 22, 2017, with his family and friends by his side. Marve was born in Melville, Saskatchewan, on March 12, 1945. His family travelled to British Columbia when he was nine months old, which Province he called home forever after. He was a proud father to his sons, Curtis (Shelley) and Ian, and grandfather to Saige, Michael, and Arlen Brimacombe. He was proud of his extended family, through his father, Cyril Brimacombe, William and Kelly Brimacombe (Valerie, Jaylene, Billie, Jocelyn, Carson and Brody) and his sister Linda Olney (Shelly, Shannon, Lyle, and their children). He was also very proud of his nephews Lenard Ianson and Robert (Bob) Marquis. Marve had lived an absolutely amazing life; riding his Harley from a young age all over the North American Continent with friends, family, or all on his own. He loved adventure and he loved learning. For him, there was no such thing as impossible, “the impossible only takes a little longer”, he would always say. Marve had an energy that was bigger than life; nothing could or would hold him back. He was a logger, welder, hockey coach, sponsor, sand drag racer, and the best HarleyDavidson mechanic around. He could fix anything. Marve had friendships all over the world, from Germany to Florida to the Bahamas. He loved to travel and made friends wherever he went. His many friends (Len T./Roy W./Dave C./Rick F./Fred W./Ron H., to name just a few) know exactly who they are because Marve made sure to tell them. An OPEN HOUSE at his SHOP, Marve’s Speed Shop (1365 Mile End Road, Cobble Hill, BC), will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017, from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. A spring motorcycle ride will be held in his honour once plans have been finalized. Riding his Harley was his greatest passion and it is my honour to arrange an appropriate tribute to him. The family wishes to thank the following people: Dr. William Reynolds and his lovely assistants (Michelle and Dawn) for their unwavering support through Marve’s illness, the local Community Health Nurses, who came to aid for his last moments; gentle and kind, and the Pharmacists and staff at Mill Bay Pharmasave for their compassion and support throughout. Condolences may be expressed through Facebook under Marve’s SPEED SHOP or Katheryn Brimacombe. I would love to hear the many stories that anyone wishes to share.

The City of Campbell River will provide northern Area D residents with drinking water for at least one more year. At last week’s board meeting, Strathcona Regional District directors agreed to extend an existing agreement with the city. The water ser vice agreement, under which the city provides water services to the area north of the Oyster River to Ocean Grove Road and west to the boundary of Strathcona Provincial Park, was implemented on Dec. 21, 2011. It expired, however, just over one month ago, on Dec. 31. Dave Leitch, CAO of the regional district, suggested the board take the city up on its offer

to extend the agreement until the end of this year. “During the past fiveyear term, the city has provided exemplar y technical and operational support to the regional district,” Leitch said. “It is recommended that the regional board support an extension of the agreement to provide an un-interrupted water service to the residents of northern electoral Area D.” The City of Campbell River offered the extension based on a three per cent inflationary adjustment. That same increase in service fees has been applied annually throughout the fiveyear term of the agreement. The annual fee for water service delivery was $81,149 in 2016. In the 2017 budget, Area D residents are

estimated to be paying $97.43 in taxes for water. The service, though, has not been without controversy. Last year, Area D Director Brenda Leigh was angry with the regional district board’s approval of a more than 50 per cent increase for Area D water rates. At that time, in order to meet the revenue targets in the 2016 financial plan, residential water rates in Area D had to increase from $260 to $402 annually and nonresidential rates from $286 to $442. Leigh, though, said she couldn’t see any justification for the rate hike. “There’s no rationale behind this bylaw,” Leigh said last August. “An increase to our utility bills by 54 per cent by the City of Campbell River is absolutely unconscionable.” Area D’s water rates are 1.6 times the annual rate that the City of Campbell River charges. The city charges higher rates to water users outside of the city limits in order to cover water delivery costs. The city’s water rates are based on the funding required to cover the annual operating and maintenance costs for the water system, as well as upgrading and replacing the various components of the water system (pipes, pumps, treatment facilities and reservoirs) as it ages and the community grows.
