Foundations receive $1.4M Dick Close estate assists community NORA O’MALLEY nora.omalley@westerlynews.ca

Nearly $1.4 million in bequests from the Dick Close estate have been given to the Pacific Rim Foundation and the Tofino General Hospital Foundation. On Saturday, Pacific Rim Foundation, a scholarship fund for Ucluelet Secondary School students, received more than $1 million and the Tofino General Hospital Foundation (TGHF) received more than $375,000. “What it means is we are able to continue the Dick Close Scholarship for a number of years,” said Gary Marks, president of Pacific Rim Foundation. “And hopefully our investment strategy will make that go even longer.” Chair of the TGHF, Arlene McGinnis, said the generous contribution will help the Tofino hospital in numerous ways. “We need to move very carefully. We don’t want to spend this money foolishly. We will be moving cautiously,” said McGinnis. Richard (Dick) Close passed away on Feb. 24, 2016 at his home on Cox Bay in Tofino. He developed Weigh West Marina (now Tofino Resort and Marina), was instrumental in developing the Long Beach Golf Course, and was was active in creating the Tofino Salmon Enhancement Society. McGinnis recalls working alongside Close to get a care facility built beside the hospital. “It fell through which was quite a shame. Dick really cared deeply about the lack of support in our community for the sick and the elderly in need of extended care. Our whole group worked really hard to get something going. It was a long struggle but it didn’t pan out,” she said. “From there on, Dick more or less let go. It was hard for him to sit back and see nothing happening. In his own quiet way, because he never wanted anyone to know what he was doing, he left the Foundation in his will and left us a wonderful amount of money.” Continued on Page A3

Tofino mayor says plastic bag ban is inevitable ANDREW BAILEY andrew.bailey@westerlynews.ca

Mayor Josie Osborne is confident that an eventual ban on plastic bags is inevitable in Tofino, but believes education must come before enforcement. Tofino’s council received a presen-

tation from Surfrider Pacific Rim members Michelle Hall and Laura Griffith-Cochrane on April 23 that spoke about the dangers plastic bags are posing to local ecosystems and wildlife and called for a community-wide ban. Hall said she and Griffith-Co-

chrane brought roughly 6,642 pieces of litter collected during April 22’s Earth Day cleanup of Tofino’s Multi-Use Path, including 202 plastic bags and 264 soft plastics. “The presentation was very well received,” said Osborne. Continued on Page A3

UCLUELET CO-OP ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING MAY 30, 2018 • 7:00 PM UCLUELET COMMUNITY CENTRE Agenda: Board Reports Manager’s Report Auditor’s Report Voting on Change in Resolutions Election of Directors - 3 positions Director Nomination Packages can be picked up at Administration Offices, and must be completed and returned by 7 pm, May 16 to qualify. For information on changes to our Co-op Rules, details are available at the administration office Mon – Fri 9 am – 4 pm. Rules being affected: Rule 78 – reducing number of directors from 9 to 7 Rule 106 & 120 – recording attendance at regular and committee meetings in the minutes rather than signing a book Rule 69, 96, and 109 – remove the words “telex” and “telegram” from method of notification delivery as these methods no longer used Rule 111 – Directors rate of pay to change from set amount per meeting until members change it, to set percentage of Federated Cooperatives Limited Directors pay. Door prizes awarded after the meeting

Funding for Tofino-based environmental group Clayoquot CleanUp has received a big boost with a $100,000 donation from tourism operator Clayoquot Wilderness Resort. First championed by Clayoquot Wilderness Resort Founder Rick Genovese and sustained by his family and resort team, the donation marks a significant turning point in Clayoquot CleanUp’s coastal restoration work in British Columbia. In their first year of operation, Clayoquot CleanUp has successfully rehabilitated more than 40 kilometres of coastline and removed more than 50,000 kilograms of ocean plastics and marine debris from the shores of Vancouver Island. Their

work continues in 2018 with planned cleanups throughout Clayoquot Sound to combat plastic pollutants. To date Clayoquot CleanUp has been funded entirely by community members and private business; the donation by Clayoquot Wilderness Resort will partially serve to fill the gap between local fundraising efforts and budget requirements. Donations of this size draw attention to the community that keeps Clayoquot CleanUp running, and simultaneously points to a lack of industry and government responsibility. Clayoquot CleanUp Founder Capt. Josh Temple stressed the significance of this private donation. “Thankfully we have organizations like Clayoquot Wilderness

Resort willing to step in and make significant commitments to combating the ocean plastics problem,” he said. “I hope that this donation serves as a catalyst for the Canadian government to finally address this growing crisis and allocate funding to organizations like Clayoquot CleanUp who are on the frontlines of the fight against ocean plastics and marine debris in British Columbia.” Bradley Goian and Antonella Puglisi, general managers of Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, hope the donation will not only help with operational costs but spur a greater conversation about finding solutions to protect the coastal environment. » To read an extended version of this story, visit www.westerlynews.com

Arlene McGinnis, chair of the Tofino General Hospital Foundation and Gary Marks president of the Pacific Rim Foundation, accept endowment funds from Brian McDaniel,left, and Dan Little, co-executors of Dick Close’s estate, on Saturday in Tofino.

Close fought hard for care facility Continued from Page A1 McGinnis hopes that, one day, the West Coast will have the care facility that Dick had fought for, or even get the entirely new hospital that the TGHF is pushing for. “It’s a lot of money to try and come up with plans for the new hospital. And to work with VIHA and the ministry and try to encour-

age them to step up and help us out sooner than later,” she said. “We’ve been told for years that we are 10 on the list. And this has gone on and on for over 30 years. The hospital is getting old.” McGinnis claims the emergency room is too small and the waiting room is too small. “There is nowhere to expand,” she said.

Marks told the Westerly the Pacific Rim Foundation’s annual $40,000 Dick Close Scholarship is now in its 10th year. “We’re obviously overwhelmed and quite humbled by Dick’s gifting this to the Pacific Rim Foundation. It’s a wonderful thing. It’s the biggest scholarship offered at USS. We are championing the education that students

get,” he said. Ucluelet’s Tyler Krueger received the scholastic honour last year. The 2018 recipient will be announced at the end of June. “Dick believed in life-long learning. His intent was to create a wonderful opportunity for some qualified young person. We are carrying-on his mission,” said Marks.

Mayor believes most Tofino residents are ‘more than ready’ to see plastic bags nixed Continued from Page A1 She added council voiced “no opposition to the idea of undertaking the work to implement a bag ban.” Osborne said though the district’s staff are already under heavy workloads so council agreed to do some investigating themselves by reaching out to other municipalities that have experience with bag bans and gather some more information from Surfrider. “I expect to see direction come from Council within the next month or so,” she said. “This will give us the opportunity to thoughtfully discuss a disposable plastic bag ban, how it could be implemented and what alternatives to plastics are most appropriate, and how education and enforcement will occur.”

Tofino Mayor Josie Osborne says she believes residents are ‘more than ready’ to see plastic bags nixed from their community. She said she believes most Tofitians are “more than ready” to see plastic bags nixed from their community and that locals should not view council’s reluctance to have their staff immediately begin working on a bag ban as evidence of hesitance. “For starters, it’s important

to recognize that a bylaw in and of itself does little. People don’t instantly follow a new rule without understanding why it’s being established, without education and understanding about why the rule is set,” she said. “The real heavy lifting is all the work Surfrider Pacific Rim has done, the

education and helping people and businesses shift in their behaviour…I hope that implementing a plastic bag ban will be relatively straightforward, but it will still require outreach the few remanning businesses using them, as well as reaching community members who may feel taken by surprise.” She added an eventual ban on plastic bags seems inevitable in the community as Canada in general is moving away from plastics. “For Tofino, moving towards banning single use plastic is not a case of ‘if,’ it’s just a case of ‘when,’” she said. “We are ready for this. An oft-cited criticism of plastic bag bans is ‘Why focus on bags? It’s such a small part of the problem.’ That’s true, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it.”

B.C. VIEWS

Fletcher: Waiting for a secret referendum How do you like minority government so far? We have a range war with Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ottawa over our NDP government’s theory that it can rewrite the Canadian constitution. We have record-high gasoline prices, fuelled by an early increase in the carbon tax insisted on by the three-member B.C. Green Party. And we’ve got a Green leader who throws tantrums, floats empty threats to bring down the NDP government he put into power, and tries to use most of his time in the legislature to attack the opposition. If you like that, great, because Premier John Horgan is doing everything he can to make sure fringe parties are elevated permanently, through some formula of proportional representation that won’t be disclosed until a month or so before a mail-in ballot this fall. Press gallery reporters got one of our brief opportunities to question the premier before

the legislature took a break last week. Horgan He hasn’t said anything about the results assured us that while the public will be told or the distribution of responses. They’re still nothing until the fall, they’ll have more than processing the “metadata” and stuff. But by enough information to answer the still-secret golly, more than 88,000 people self-selected to question (or questions) before the November respond to the survey, and that’s the biggest consultation ever! deadline to mail in ballots. “We are months and months Indeed, 88,000 people is slightaway,” Horgan said. “I’m fairly ly more than the population of certain there won’t be too many Chilliwack. Heck, it’s enough summer barbecues where the people to vote in the referentopic of conversation is produm to reshape the voting system, since there is no minimum portional representation.” He’s made sure of that by turnout this time. Here’s what the keeping the preparations and NDP’s 2017 election platform the ballot question in the said: “We’ll hold a referendum Tom Fletcher hands of Attorney General on changing our voting system David Eby and his political staff. There’s so that every vote counts. We’ll ensure B.C.’s nothing to discuss yet. regions are all represented fairly. And we’ll For his part, Eby is so enthusiastic about campaign for the yes side.” I guess they could the response to his slanted online survey now argue that two out of three ain’t bad. on the subject that he can hardly stand it. The “regions” are intentionally not represent-

ed fairly, as they were in two previous referendums. This time urban B.C. will decide the outcome, because that favours the NDP and Greens. The B.C. Liberal opposition pressed the NDP government in the legislature in late April, and after Eby did most of the deflecting in a raucous question period, Horgan rose to mock the opposition’s objections. “How outrageous of us to join with the Green Party, who also campaigned on that commitment, to make sure that we get proportional representation in this house,” Horgan said. “That’s what we campaigned on; that’s what we’re going to deliver.” So the fix is in, officially. The government’s going to fund a yes and no side, after barbecue season of course. But there are already two “yes” campaigns. One, VotePRBC, is fundraising. The other, YesPRBC, doesn’t seem worried about money, almost as if it expects public funding.

Emergency opioid overdose training kits, like the one pictured above, feature Naloxone, a medication that quickly reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids such as heroin, methadone, fentanyl and morphine.

Take Naloxone training and become a potential life-saver B.C. has a program that trains people to respond to opioid overdoses MARCIE CALLEWAERT Special to the Westerly

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, has become a household name in British Columbia over the past two years. The rise in fentanyl and carfentanyl overdoses has brought this tragic crisis to the forefront of the media. On the coast, many of us likely thought we would be spared, but it has reached our streets and homes, too. Naloxone can restore breathing during an opioid overdose and reduce deaths, brain damage and other harm due to oxygen deprivation during an overdose. There is no simple solution to this crisis. There is something every community member can do though, to take action. Naloxone clinics are free and open to everyone. With every trained person, we are one step closer to saving a life when another overdose occurs. Naloxone is simple to use and safe to administer. There are virtually no risks to giving it to a patient who is suspected of overdosing. Training sessions cover the signs and symptoms to watch for, procedures to open vials, how to draw and prepare the dose into the needle, and how to inject the needle. Needles are designed to retreat into the plastic case once injected so there is no risk of needle pricks after the dose has been given. Class participants

will even get to practise giving doses into a training prop. Tofino Fire Chief Brent Baker is a Naloxone educator and ran the first community training session on April 26 at the Tofino Fire Department. “The session lasted approximately one hour and the feedback from the participants was very positive”, Baker said. Community members with Naloxone training greatly assist first responders and paramedics. “These are time sensitive matters that require quick thinking and action. The faster treatment can begin, the better the chances are of survival,” Baker said. “Whether we are involved, or are witness to an overdose, this is going to be an experience that may change your life and the best way to prepare for that is to have the knowledge to make a difference and to do so safely.”

BC Emergency Health Services, Island Health, Rural and Remote Division of Family Practice and the Nuu-ChahNulth Tribal Council have been working together “to identify any gaps in service and create a strategic plan to carry out public training sessions for the various communities on the coast,” according to Baker. “Currently the working group is in the process of identifying appropriate times and locations for upcoming workshops in a number of other communities on the coast.” Anyone interested in participating in Naloxone training should talk to their area health nurse for upcoming classes or one-on-one sessions as time allows. Many Indigenous communities also have classes running. Contact the local public health administrator for more information at: 250-725-4020.

This Cambridge-bound future astronomer, with his sweet vulnerability, only enters the brick-and-mortar school intending to ace his high-school equivalency exam – that is, until he spots Anastasia (Siobhan Williams), the popular one-legged girl. “Walking through those doors is going to change my life forever – like some supernova explosion of love,” opines Liam in the trailer. Now he needs to convince his helicopter mom that his doover (after deliberately failing) involves attending classes in this “institution of low expectations” and “mediocrity”. From American Pie to The Breakfast Club, the fish-out-ofwater in high school has been a source of comedy gold but Adventures offers a fresh twist – the love story at its heart is the one between mother and son as she hilariously supports his bid for independence and the girl. Director and co-writer, Kyle Rideout says he wanted to focus in on this relationship where instead of typical complaints about parents, this teen’s mother is his best and only friend. “How far can we go if she’s trying to teach him about rebellion and keep him safe? It’s coming from a place of heart,” he points out, because her own life went in a different direction than she wanted with her teen pregnancy. She’s trying to right those mistakes through how she raises her son. Doheny’s breakout performance as Liam has been compared by Variety to Tom Hanks’ early work. “Daniel was incredible,” says Rideout, explaining auditions were held

“How far can we go if she’s trying to teach him about rebellion and keep him safe? It’s coming from a place of heart.” – Kyle Rideout cross-country. “He came from the theatre world. We asked to bring him in for our Vancouver casting directors and he really blew us away.”

As a director, Rideout relies on the acting background he balances with filmmaking. He has worked with co-writer and producer Josh Epstein since both performed in Kevin Kerr’s play Studies in Motion, later adapted as their first feature, biopic Eadweard. “Both Josh and I knew some homeschooled kids,” say Rideout of the spark for this second feature. The creative duo talked to teens and parents to inspire ideas. The concept became more grounded:

originally Liam lived in the woods and his best friend was a bear. They developed the story over two years through their company, Motion 58 Entertainment and via programs including Comedy Lab and Features at Canadian Film Centre (CFC), all “fantastic at getting the project out there – without them it would have been a bigger struggle.” Despite their success with distribution, comedy doesn’t always travel. “What we find funny here

in Canada,” explains Rideout, may not translate to audiences in Australia or Japan, whose experience of homeschool may differ. “Kyle just began the theatrical run on April 27, so our little cinema is a first-run theatre this weekend,” says cousin Sandi Rideout, thanks in part to Wickaninnish Inn donating accommodation. Director and producer will host a Q&A with Saturday May 12th’s screening at Clayoquot Sound Community Theatre.

A total of $80,000 recently handed out ANDREW BAILEY andrew.bailey@westerlynews.ca

Coastal difference-makers recently received an $80,000 infusion into their unique and inspiring initiatives. The Carving on the Edge Society, Surfrider Pacific Rim, Raincoast Education Society and Kliilth Pi-taap Taaqumths Men’s Group each received $20,000 cheques from the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust during a recent celebration held at the Tofino Botanical Gardens. The Carving on the Edge Festival Society plans to spend their funding on their ‘Putting the culture in the hands of our children’ project where they will partner with the Language Keepers Society and cultural educator Gisele Martin to offer intergenerational language and culture programming. “There’s going to be a lot to cover over the next few months and then a lot of it will be shared at the Carving on the Edge Festival in September,” said project coordinator Helene Descoteaux at the April 20 event. The local Surfrider crew will put their funding towards a partnership with the Ahousaht First Nation to organize remote beach cleans and tackle garbage that’s piling up on hidden beaches “We’ve noticed since starting remote cleans that it is such a massive need. Those beaches are in dire need of our help,” said Surfrider Pacific Rim chair Jason Sam. “We are super excited to go out and undertake all this awesomeness.” The Raincoast Education Society’s funding will go towards the field school program it plans to offer to Ucluelet Elementary School students. The program has been running at Tofino’s Wickaninnish Community School since 2014 and meshes the B.C. curriculum with the West Coast’s natural environment to create outdoor classrooms where students enjoy experiential and educational learning. “Instead of learning about science from a textbook inside, they can go out onto the beach and learn about ecosystems,” said RES executive director Mark Maftei. “We’ve been running the program in Tofino for a few years now and it’s been a dream for a while to run it in Ukee as well,”

Surfrider Pacific Rim’s youth team recently tackled Flores Island and the foundation is set to partner with the Ahousaht First Nation to conduct more remote beach cleanups thanks to funding from the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust. added Field School Coordinator Ariane Batic. “Giving everyone that equal opportunity to have those hands-on, outdoor experiences…and to create opportunities for our youth in Tofino and Ucluelet to work together in this partnership as well.” The Kliilth Pi-taap Taaqumths Men’s Group was formed to help communities heal together by supporting each other. “Part of healing is not just talking about it. It’s about our culture. Bringing our culture back, bringing our language back. Having the singing changes the energy, it uplifts people, it transforms people, it allows us to be who we are, and if we don’t have that how can we move forward together?” said group member Dwayne Martin. “We put our health and social needs on the back-burners too much. We’ve got to be about action, not just words. Our men are standing up because often, sadly, it is the men in our community that cause a lot of the dysfunction, a lot of the abuse, a lot of the alcohol. We’re trying to change that in a healthy way. Not to preach to anybody. Not to look down on anybody. Just to stand together as healthy men.” He said the group set up a centre at the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nation’s Long Beach community and weekly gatherings at the centre are open to everyone. “We’re trying to be more than just a healthy men’s group. We want to impact people in our community. Families, mothers, youth, children,” he said. “There’s no limits to what we can do when we work together.” The funding stemmed from the CBT’s new Vital Grants

funding stream, which is a reinvention of its Call for Projects Grants. In the past, the Call for Projects dished out annual small grants to about 20 organizations but, after consulting with community stakeholders and funding colleagues, the Trust decided fewer, larger, grants would better help tackle the region’s regional priorities and complex challenges, according to the CBT’s executive director Rebecca Hurwitz. “We heard a lot of appreciation for the flexibility of our programs and for the work that we’re doing in the communities, but one comment really stood out and that was one grantee simply stated, ‘Small grants make it difficult to address big issues,’” Hurwitz said. “That comment really hit a chord with us.” She said the CBT has spent the past 18 years promoting cultural, social, economic and environmental sustainability through a variety of funding streams in an effort to work towards the “ambitious aim to solve some of the world’s most critical sustainability issues by 2030” set by the United Nations “The CBT is making every effort to address these goals with local community action, research, education and programs that promote the health of individuals, communities and ecosystems,” she said at the April 20 event adding that she is excited to see what the first four Vital Grant recipients produce. “Supporting projects like yours, is one of the ways that we can work together to meet these goals and the shared mandates of creating a better future both locally and internationally.”

Bylaw makes room for tiny homes in Tofino ANDREW BAILEY andrew.bailey@westerlynews.ca

The burgeoning tiny home trend could be coming to Tofino while owners of large homes face being barred from the local tourism industry. District staff have been working on a complete rewrite of the town’s zoning bylaws for the past two years and one of the most significant changes might be what they’ve left out of the final draft. “We’re removing minimum dwelling size,” said manager of community sustainability Aaron Rodgers. “People can decide to build whatever size of house that suits them. ” Under the current bylaw, homes must be a minimum of 750 sq. ft., but Rodgers said that mandate has forced some property owners to build houses larger than they desired and put an unnecessary barrier in the way of affordability. “We’re trying to be more flexible. People’s needs are changing over the years. Not everybody wants to build a bigger house,” he said. “We’re offering more choice and more flexibility in the housing market.” The zoning bylaw’s revision was ordered by Tofino’s municipal council in 2016 as part of its proactive fight against illegal vacation rentals and Rodgers said much of the changes his team has presented involve clarifying definitions and cleaning up roughly 20 years worth of zoning bylaw accumulation. “We’re basically just tight-

“People can decide to build whatever size of house that suits them.” – Aaron Rodgers ening up the vacation rental and bed and breakfast rules so that, as we move forward, they’re clearer, more transparent and easily enforceable,” he said. “The zoning bylaw is old and cranky and missing words. So, if you interpret it to the letter of the bylaw, which we do, we can’t do things that were probably intended to happen.” While the revised bylaw looks to nix minimum house sizes, it’s also putting a new maximum size restriction on residences that offer a bed and breakfast or short term rental. Homes with more than three bedrooms will not be permitted to offer short term rentals and homes with more than four bedrooms will not be permitted to operate a bed and breakfast. Currently, all homes within Tofino’s residential zones are permitted to operate a B and B, provided they have a business licence and only rent out a maximum of three rooms, but Rodgers said the district’s bylaw team has struggled to monitor operations closely enough to know how many rooms a residence is renting out. He said for-profit accommodation is meant to be a secondary use for a family residence, but the district is seeing illegal “mini-hotels”

popping up. “We walk away and the next thing we know, they’re renting out all six rooms,” he said. “We just want to make sure that the rules are tight and fair across the board,” Rodgers said anyone currently holding a business licence for either a short term rental or B and B would be grandfathered in as legal, regardless of the amount of rooms in their home, but any new applications would be subject to the size limit. He added that the use must be continuous in order to remain grandfathered, meaning anyone who stops operating their rental or B and B for six months would be forced into the new legislation. He said property values should stay safe as a sold home’s grandfathered use as a B and B or vacation rental will remain intact as long as the new owner applies for a business licence early in the process. “As long as the use continues, you’re fine,” he said. The proposed bylaw was expected to go through a public hearing process on April 24, but an internal error at the district office caused an advertising mixup that forced the hearing to be rescheduled to May 22. » We want to hear from you.

This building at 551 Campbell St., Tofino won the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s Top Award of Excellence at the VIREB awards on April 19.

New Cypre Corner building wins award of excellence ADAM KVETON adam.kveton@pqbnews.com

What might have been a bus station has instead become an award-winning retail building in Tofino’s gateway area. Located at 551 Campbell St., the building, designed by Tofino’s Flo Design, now houses a pizzeria and three-artist studio/gallery. But the plan for the site had been quite different, said Cypre Corner’s owner, Dylan Green. Also the owner of the Tofino Bus Company, Green said he’d had the land since 2005 and had hoped it could be a bus station for the bus company. “We were running smaller equipment (and) we were hoping this would become the bus station, because my original bus

station was across the street,” said Green. The site ended up being too small, but Green went ahead with rezoning the site for general retail, “and this is the result,” he said. “It was exciting to have been nominated, and it was even more surprising to win the award,” Green said. “We felt that it was a small project compared to some of the other nominees, but we really did focus on design. Because it’s a small project, it allowed us more opportunity to focus on design. “And especially it being on the main entrance to Tofino, we were really focused on making a building exciting — adding to the Gateway. We are in the Gateway zone of Tofino, so we really

wanted to add to the appeal of the entrance to Tofino.” The shape of the lot was both a hurdle and an inspiration for the design of the building, Green said. “We had to work with the angles of the lot, but that became the main feature — that big corner.” Creating a roof overhang proved both complicated and interesting, leading to the decision to keep the roof work exposed inside the building. “It looks so cool when you see how it’s put together,” said Green. “I’m excited that the building has won the award, and hopefully it will bring more business… and people are attracted to it and check it out,” he said.

– Andrew Purdey The route is scheduled to land adjacent to Tofino Resort and Marina. Andrew Purdey, co-owner of Tofino Resort and Manager, called the partnership a strategic alliance that will enhance the whole West Coast experience. “It’s going to be able to bring some of our clients more effectively from the Seattle market,” said Purdey. “When we first bought [Tofino Resort] my whole vision was to tie the West Coast together. That is to take from the Gulf Islands through our marina in Port Sidney to Port Renfrew to Bamfield to Tofino is tying it all together. Now people can come up on their yachts and the business [folks] can come in and catch up to their families on their yachts all up and down the West Coast. This is a real critical component of putting all of that together.” Harbour Air will primarily use a new nine-passenger, executive seating, Caravan EX aircraft for the Vancouver-Tofino service. “It’s a brand new, million-dollar aircraft. Has all the latest safety and top-of-the-line navigational equipment,” Wright said.

North America’s first carbon neutral airline, Harbour Air Seaplanes, held a launch party last week to announce a new service between downtown Vancouver and the Tofino harbour. Flights begin operating on May 10, running once per day, Thursday through Monday. Trips from the city to Tofino depart at 11:30 a.m. and trips from Tofino to the Coal Harbour terminal in Vancouver depart at 1 p.m. Locals and a guest may fly standby for 50 per cent off the regular rate when they show proper Tofino or Ucluelet identification. “We need your support on this for it to be successful. I know Highway 4 is in trouble this year with construction, this will be a one-hour flight from downtown Vancouver to here for your guests,” said Harbour Air president, Randy Wright, at the launch party. He went on to stress the importance of safety. “Our number one value and our number one priority is that a good pilot recognizes the weather and will park the airplane.” The float-plane company is currently looking at the Ucluelet Harbour as an alternate landing spot for inclement weather, and according to Wright, they are also in discussion with local Indigenous communities. “Otherwise we go to Port Alberni and bus in,” he said.

Devries captures eighth national title

Surf champions are crowned at Wickaninnish Beach

T

ofino surfer Peter Devries won his eighth national title Saturday at Wickaninnish Beach in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The win gets him one step closer to qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. “It’s great to see the level of Canadian surfing being pushed. Thanks to all my supporters and sponsors that have supported me for so long,” Devries said at the awards ceremony. In the final heat of the day, which unfortunately featured windy, junky wave conditions, Devries beat out Costa Rican-based Sean Foerster, Hawaii-based Cody Young, and Tofino’s Michael Darling. Californian-Canadian Bethany Zelasko claimed the women’s open title. Sanoa Dempfle-Olin, last year’s champion, was runner up. Hawaii resident and big wave surfer Paige Alms, who is originally from Victoria, was third and Mathea Dempfle-Olin was fourth. Sanoa said it was so windy when they ran the final heat that she couldn’t hear a thing. “I was just thinking, just go out there and surf and hope for the best.” She said she felt like she performed well, considering. “I mean you’re never fully satisfied unless you win, but I mean I felt like there is always room to improve,” said Sanoa. Zelasko, 18, also won the under-18 girls division. The victories guarantee her a spot on Team Canada as they head to ISA junior Worlds and Pan American Games. “Going into [Surf Nationals] I was thinking I should try and win every heat because I know I have the surfing. God gifted me with this talent and I might as well use it to the best of my ability,” said Zelasko. “My goal was to win every heat and then go and win the finals which I did.” Twelve-year-old Wheeler Hasburgh from Encinitas, California won the under-18 boys division. Even though he was born in Canada and his mom is from Richmond, Hasburgh said this was the first time surfing in Canada. “It was an awesome experience. I came in a little bit before the contest and it was super exciting,” said Hasburgh. Tofino’s Reed Platenius claimed

It was a great event and I’m super excited to surf with my friends from Maui, California and of course Tofino. Hanging out and surfing with everyone before and after the competition has been really fun,” said Platenius, a member of the USS Surfrider Youth Club. At the awards ceremony, Devries made a point of thanking contest organizer and president of Surf Canada, Dom

Domic. “Definitely everybody should give a huge round of applause to Dom here. He’s put in so much time to get this organized. Countless hours so thanks to Dom for getting it off the ground,” said Devries. On the last day of competition, Wick Beach provided gorgeous, clean little waves for the longboard and SUP surf events. Mathea Dempfle-Olin defended her girls under-16 title and her title as Canada’s longboard queen in a suspenseful final heat between Tofino’s Lydia Ricard, Hanna Scott, and Leah Oke. Ri-

card had the lead with the best two wave total up until one-minute remaining on the clock when Mathea caught one last wave to get the score she needed for the win. “But nothing gave me more joy then the tandem ride in with Hanna Scott. It reminded me what surfing is all about,” she wrote on her Instagram @ Mathea_Olin. Former pro surfer Christian Thomson claimed the men’s longboard title in another tight heat between young goofy footer Reed Platenius, Jean-Laurence Vachon Vigneault, and Ucluelet’s Jeremy Bowery. In the SUP surf category,

Hawaii-based Jeffrey Spencer nabbed the men’s title and Tofino’s dear Catherine Bruhwiler took home the gold medal in the women’s. The veteran surfer also placed fifth in the women’s shortboard. “I’m stoked to have got good waves beyond the result,” said Bruhwiler, who was one of five Bruhwiler’s to compete in the Canadian Surf Nationals. (It would have been six, but Raph Bruhwiler withdrew due to illness.) “It’s super exciting to see what’s happening in surfing in Canada,” she said. “I love the lifestyle of the sport. It keeps me healthy and in shape. I get to train with Kalum and the other kids.”
