Ukee council denies three applications NORA O’MALLEY nora.omalley@westerlynews.ca

Ucluelet’s municipal council defeated three separate applications for cannabis retail sales on Wednesday night, Nov. 20. Council’s decision to quash all three pot shop applications came directly after a well-attended public hearing and cannabis open house. “I’m disappointed that there will still be a delay,” said longtime Ucluelet resident Laurie Crozier. “Ucluelet will be behind the times.” Crozier was one of 23 individuals to address council during the Nov. 20 public hearing. “[Marijuana] is a choice you get to make. Mayco Noel Adults should be able to make that choice and adults in our community should be able to do it legally,” said Crozier. Recreational cannabis has been legal in Canada for over a year. According to the Government of British Columbia, there are currently more than 200 legally licensed cannabis stores in the province. Mayor Mayco Noël voted in opposition of approving applications from ‘Ucluelet Cannabis Co.’ located behind the Ucluelet Liquor Store at 1786 Peninsula Road and ‘Green Leaves Cannabis’ located down the hill from the Ucluelet Co-op Pharmacy (formerly Barry’s).

“I feel the current environment of the community, there may be some models that are available to us and the community that have not been presented to us yet. Reasons allowing cannabis retail sales cannot be based on convenience and tourism. This really needs to be a true fit and benefit the entire community. And, I’m not getting that [from these applicants],” said Noël. “I understand that it’s legal and I have that in mind, but we need to make sure that we have the best option that’s presented to the community,” he said. Ucluelet’s mayor recused himself from voting on the third application, ‘Platinum Cannabis’ located on 1972 Peninsula Road beside Abbondanza’s Pizza, due to a conflict of interest; his brotherin-law owns the building. Councillor Marilyn McEwen voted in favour of approving applications from ‘Ucluelet Cannabis Co.’ and ‘Green Leaves Cannabis’. In fact, McEwen was the only councillor on Nov. 20 to raise a hand in favour of bringing cannabis retail to Ucluelet. “I don’t think as a councillor my job is to tell a business person what business they can or cannot open. However, land use decisions are what this council is here to provide for the community. The two questions I’ve asked myself are, ‘Is this applicant one of the best to take this on and is this the best location’,” said McEwen. Greg Ralston has lived in Ucluelet for 49 years. He read a speech to council at the Nov. 20 cannabis retail public hearing. “You guys don’t have to rush into it. Take your time. Let other communities make the mistakes and read how they go about it. I’m not against it. I’ve inhaled marijuana. Ucluelet needs to own the licence. We need to benefit from the profits. Not

“ We need someone that is going to be there for us and give back to the community.” – Shane Magnussen just hand that golden ticket to an individual from out of town or one person and they get all the cake. Ucluelet should own that licence,” he said. Ucluelet resident Shane Magnussen also spoke at the public hearing. He told the Westerly he was happy with council’s decision to wait on selecting a cannabis retailer. “I agree with council’s decision on taking their time to pick the right candidate as opposed to hiring the first person that comes along. We need someone that is going to be there for us and give back to the community. To me, what the community gets out of this is more important. It’s a licence for money. You might see it as a small building, but it’s big business. Those are millions of dollars, they’re not like the corner store,” Magnussen said. On Aug. 12, 2019, Tofino’s municipal council approved temporary use permits (TUP) for two cannabis retail shops: West Coast Cannabis Store at 1182 Pacific Rim Highway and Daylight Cannabis at 1-671 Industrial Way. The TUP’s are valid for three years, and could be renewed for another three years once they expire. On the other hand, if Ucluelet’s cannabis retail sales applicants had been successful, they would have had no time limit as their applications were for a rezoning to allow cannabis retail as an additional principal use on the property. “The rezoning would not expire,” notes Bruce Greig, Ucluelet’s manager of community planning.

Algae bloom killing farmed fish NORA O’MALLEY nora.omalley@westerlynews.ca

A rash of farmed salmon deaths at a collection of fish farms near Tofino is being blamed on a naturally occuring algae bloom. Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) confirmed four Cermaq Canada salmon farms (Binns Island, Bawden Point, Ross Pass and Millar Channel) north of Tofino in the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Region are affected. According to DFO, the farmed fish are non-infectious. Cermaq first reported these mortalities on Nov. 7, as required by the conditions of licence for marine finfish aquaculture. “As a condition of licence, farms are required to report fish mortality events when they reach the threshold of two per cent of the farm’s population in 24 hours, or four metric tonnes (about 800 fish of harvestable Gord Johns size). Updates must be provided every 10 days,” read a statement from DFO. A media release posted to the Cermaq Canada website on Nov. 15, initially pointed to three fish farms are being impacted – Binns Island, Bawden Point and Ross Pass. “We are seeing two particular types of algae in these regions – chaetoceros concavicornis and chaetoceros convolutes, which are both native to the Pacific Ocean,” said David Kiemele, Managing Director for Cermaq Canada, in the release. “These particular algae have rigid “spines” that are harmful to fish when they come in contact with gills. Blooms are often associated with low dissolved oxygen events and warm ocean water temperatures and weather changes – all of which we are, or have been experiencing.” Cermaq did not disclose the approximate number of dead fish. “We don’t release mortality numbers for commercial reasons, but

“They need to stop putting fish into open net fish farms immediately.” – Gord Johns we can confirm that we did have mortalities at three sites. No other farms were impacted by the naturally occurring algae bloom,” said Amy Jonsson, Cermaq’s communications and engagement manager, in a Nov. 19, email to the Westerly. The company has yet to respond to a follow-up inquiry about the Miller Channel site cited by DFO. DFO said it is satisfied that the facility operators are managing these fish health events appropriately, consistent with their licence and fish health management plan. Departmental staff are scheduled to visit some of the sites during the week of Nov. 25 to 29 as part of its audit and monitoring program. Cermaq noted that they also provided notice of the recent algae bloom and resulting mortalities to the Ahousaht First Nation, in whose territory these farms are operated. “The fish are improving and the water conditions are improving,” reads Cermaq’s Nov. 15 media release. Last week, a Clayoquot Action team found dive crews at work, and bio-waste trailers being loaded with dead fish, at Cermaq’s Binns Island salmon farm near Ahousaht. Similar activity was observed at the adjacent Bawden Bay farm, according to a Nov. 18 press release issued by Clayoquot Action. “The algae blooms are made worse by the nutrient runoff from the farms. This has been exasperated by the climate crisis. We haven’t had rain. The water is very warm. The additional nutrient loading from the 20 fish farms that we have in Clayoquot Sound are probably causing the situation to be worse,” said Clayoquot Action campaigner Bonny Glambeck. “If we’re having a mass die-off on the fish farms, one has to wonder what is happening to the wild fish. There are marine creatures that live in the inlet where these farms are

located. Young wild salmon that are rearing in the inlet as well as there are rockfish conservancies and there may still be salmon waiting to go up the river to spawn. All of these fish are going to be impacted negatively, similarly to what is happening to the fish on the farms. They don’t have the benefit of having oxygen pumped into their environment like the farmed fish do,” said Glambeck. As part of its 2019 federal election campaign, the Liberal Party pledged to move all aquaculture in B.C. to closed containment by 2025. “In British Columbia, we will work with the province to develop a responsible plan to transition from open net pen salmon farming in coastal waters to closed containment systems by 2025,”states page 36 of the Liberal Party’s campaign platform. Courtenay-Alberni MP Gord Johns believes the Liberals need to advance that agenda. “They need to stop putting fish into open net fish farms immediately. Why run another cycle, when you’ve got all these conditions and you haven’t addressed the issue. The concerns related to sea lice, the PRV and now you’ve got an algae bloom. This is clear that they don’t have a solution to remedy these issues,” Johns said. “The newly appointed minister [Bernadette Jordan] needs to get out to the West Coast immediately. This is an urgent situation. She needs to see it first hand. She doesn’t want to see what happened to the Atlantic cod,” he said. “She needs to see for herself the crisis that our salmon are in.” On Nov. 22, Cermaq Canada released an updated statement regarding the algae. “The recent elevated harmful algae seen at our farms off the west coast of Vancouver Island continues to dissipate, and we are returning to normal operations. Our fish are recovering, and we have resumed feeding at the majority of our farms in the area,” said Kiemele. “We want to provide the most recent operational update to help clarify some of the unfortunate misinformation seen on social media. It looks as though

a total of about 10 per cent of our population across the impacted sites will be lost. Mortalities are collected, stored and transported under strict biosecurity protocols, for use in rendering or fertilizer. These recent mortalities are a result of the elevated harmful algae seen in the region, and not related to disease, our Hydrolicer operations or any other causes. The harmful algae embedded into the gills of our fish causing damage which unfortunately, can be fatal.” Locky MacLean is the campaign director for Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, an international non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organization. Sea Shepherd crew members have been on the water documenting the fish mortalities. Maclean said he observed an oily slick leaching into the surrounding waters of Herbert Inlet on the west coast of Vancouver island, a sign the fish are decomposing inside the pens. “We have drone footage as recent as Nov. 24,” said MacLean. “What we are still seeing is this big, oily slick. They have not done anything to address that or clean that up at all. That, in our view, is pollution. It’s biological matter from a foreign invasive species, it’s an exotic species that doesn’t belong in British Columbian waters. It’s like you brought in a bio-security hazard and let it loose in the environment. That’s what we’ve go here,” he said. “It’s really irresponsible for Cermaq to say they are back to work and everything is normal. That’s just pure PR. That’s not what we are seeing on the ground. They are still emptying dead fish into trailers. They are still barging the oil. Chunks of matter are still floating and leaching out of these farms,” said MacLean. Sea Shepherd believes the fish mortality rate is much higher than Cermaq claims. “We are inclined to think 400,000 fish could have been affected. That wouldn’t be eight per cent, that would be more like 20 per cent or 25 per cent. We wouldn’t be surprised if that number keeps growing,” said MacLean.

Transportation options can be few in B.C. communities

The biggest news story in Metro Vancouver in recent weeks has concerned a transit operators’ strike that, as of Nov. 7, has had no effect other than to idle several SeaBus sailings between North Vancouver and Waterfront station in downtown Vancouver each day. The union has threatened escalation, but its biggest success has been in planting fear in the minds of many who use the transit system. Transit use in Metro Vancouver is up substantially. For many people, a total shutdown would leave them with few alternatives. However, SkyTrain would likely keep running, because there are no drivers – one reason the Bill Bennett provincial government chose the technology in the early 1980s, when transit strikes were a much more regular occurrence. The hot air about transit must seem amusing to residents in other parts of B.C., when thinking of their lack of transportation alternatives. BC Transit operates urban transit systems in most

B.C. urban areas, but intercity transprivate bus operators have stepped up portation options are often minimal. to help fill some of the gaps, notably In some areas such as the West between Vancouver and Calgary, KaKootenay, residents can travel bemloops and Kelowna, and Kelowna tween cities such as Trail, Castlegar and Nelson. and Nelson via BC Transit.

This A modest expansion of existing train service left much of the province with few intercity transportation options, other than flying. A number of (and perhaps a new Via route restoring the former

BC Rail passenger service between Vancouver and Prince George) could provide a few more intercity options. The Cariboo region has few intercity options, and such a service could help. The public seems unaware of the train option. Several years ago, we were on the Via train from Vancouver to Toronto, leaving Vancouver on a Friday night in February. The highway through the Fraser Canyon was closed because of snow conditions, but the trains were running. Yet most people trying to get to Kamloops or points between by bus thought they had no options – the train only had a few extra passengers. Intercity transportation is important. That’s exactly why all levels of government need to do a better job in expanding transportation options to those not served, and to those who can’t afford airfare.

TRENDING ONLINE SD70 MULLS NEW SCHOOL NAMES, ASKS FOR FEEDBACK The idea that a school should be renamed because some, or even most of the students to don’t live in the region it’s named for seems ridiculous. Most colleges and universities are named for their location yet attract students from all over the country or beyond. Whatever the cost to change the name, including the time spent talking about it might be better spent on something with a direct educational value to the students.

Geoff Johnson

I quite like Ucluelet Secondary. Waste of time and money to change it. I am a life long local and find the idea ridiculous. Where is the pride?!

Celena Cook

Unnecessary. Don’t waste time or money on this please.

Wednesday, November 27, 2019 A5

TRENDING ONLINE Should rename everything on the coast Pac Rim? Or maybe call everything in the province BC, or the country Canada, everything in the continent North America, and then everything on the planet Earth. Are we going to rename the Tofino Hospital, ‘cause I go there but don’t live in Tuff, change the name of the airport, the beaches, the golf course? If we let this start, it will not end.

Peter Desserud

Ucluelet Secondary School is fine. It’s in Ucluelet just as the Tofino General Hospital is in Tofino.

Marissa Mack

How about that money goes to text books or something important? I don’t know, just a real idea. When I went to school there, I used the same text book my English teacher did when he was in school. Just an idea. Tofino, think of the kids not your town.

Cameron Graham As as been pointed out, it must mean the Tofino Hospital is being renamed too, as it also serves all the west coast.

The board of education for School District 70 has proposed several new names for the district and two of its schools. Trustees have been searching for a new name for the school district as a whole that better represents the region. They have proposed that SD70 (Alberni) become either SD70 (Pacific Rim) or SD70 (Alberni-Pacific Rim). “At a district level, trustees understand that following amalgamation with SD79 (Ucluelet-Tofino) in 1970, the name ‘Alberni’ has failed to capture the geographic diversity served by the district,” said Pam Craig, board chair, in a press release. Trustees have also proposed that Ucluelet Secondary School (USS) be renamed Pacific Rim Secondary School or West Coast Secondary School because it serves students all along the West Coast. “Currently, USS is in the early stages of seismic renovations and upgrades that will

essentially result in a new secondary school, suggesting the time is right to consider a new school name that reflects its entire catchment area,” said Craig. Finally, trustees have proposed that AW Neill Elementary School become either Compton Elementary School or Kitsuksis Elementary School. “Much discussion has taken place about the values and actions of A.W. Neill and whether or not AW Neill Elementary School should continue to bear this individual’s name,” Craig explained. The names suggested are in keeping with the school district’s new administrative procedure, which outlines the criteria and process by which schools are named or renamed. The board of education will make a final decision in the spring of 2020. In the meantime, trustees have asked for feedback from the public. Email namechange@sd70.bc.ca to let trustees know if you support the name changes, which names you prefer or if you have an alternate name for consideration.

Ucluelet ready for annual shopping celebration

ANDREW BAILEY andrew.bailey@westerlynews.ca

West Coast residents will kick off their holiday shopping sprees with a festive bang this weekend as Midnight Madness cheers through Ucluelet. Local stores will stay open late, offering happy patrons a bevvy of bargains and ample Christmas merriment on Nov. 29. “This type of event is great for both communities, shopping locally not only brings our community together during the holidays, but our environmental impact is reduced,” municipal councillor and Ucluelet chamber of commerce manager Lara Kemps told the Westerly News. “It provides a local economic stimulus and as we all see by our local businesses, they invest in our community. This is just another great reason for the citizens of our community to come together and celebrate the joys of living on our beautiful coast.” Ucluelet mayor Mayco Noel assured he will be one of the night’s many revellers and he’s excited to see what the town’s unique shops have in store. “It’s a rite of passage for our community. It happens every year and we always look forward to it…Everybody’s cheery and merry and it’s just a real celebration that Christmas is upon us,” Noel told the Westerly. “Our community is full of entrepreneurs and this is one night that they really get to showcase some of the great things they’re doing.” Courtenay-Alberni MP Gord Johns told the Westerly that Midnight Madness is an important event both socially and economically. “It’s always about the West Coast and keeping our dollars on the West Coast,” Johns said. “It’s about the West Coast coming together to support local businesses, making sure they get through the winter and thrive. That’s something that I think we all understand is really important. Small business is the job creator and the economic driver of the West Coast.” Jan Draeseke, a Midnight Madness pioneer and the owner of Ucluelet’s longest-running store The Crow’s

Susan Lee is looking forward to welcoming the weekend’s Midnight Madness merriment into her Blackberry Cove Marketplace. Nest, said merchants are annually thrilled with the opportunity to offer great deals to locals. “It gets everybody in the community out and about to all the different stores, there’s lots of socializing, the kids get to stay out late, it’s fun, it’s festive, it’s a tradition,” she said. “It’s really about the local community and businesses being able to give back to the people who live here.” She said the spirit of the shopping spree has stayed strong over the years, though online and out-of-town draws have lured local dollars, causing an unfortunately draining impact. “It’s not quite as busy as it used to be because people are focused on out of town shopping more than they used to be,” she said. “People always used to shop locally, now they do that less,” she said. She hopes to see shoppers revitalize their commitment to their community.

“When you shop locally, you’re dealing with somebody that you know. If you have a problem with an item, you go back to the store. When you walk into the store, you get personalized service; people greet you they say, ‘Hello, how are you?’ You have a little gossip with them about their lives and it creates community,” she said. “Community is what we enjoy in a town like Ucluelet, where people get to interact at the Co-op at the post office in the stores walking the trails; you see each other and you stop and you talk and you interact. It gives a quality of life that is not available to people living in large urban centres and it’s what makes living here magical.” Gypsy Drifter owner Nicola Buston is excitedly preparing for her store’s fourth Midnight Madness experience and said she’s looking forward to

seeing all the smiling faces the event induces. “The community all taking part in it and everyone being able to come together and celebrate the upcoming holiday season,” she said. Susan Lee of Blackberry Cove Marketplace said the festive event brings shoppers into stores that might not yet be part of their local shopping routine. “It’s one of the things that makes living here special,” she said. “It’s such a community event. It’s an opportunity for folks to get out and have fun with other folks and support the businesses. I love it because it’s a fun night for me as a store owner and I get to meet people I don’t see all the time, so it’s a way to introduce people to the store.” Kristen O’Keefe will be celebrating her third Midnight Madness event at The Den.

“Midnight Madness to me is so awesome because it’s locals supporting locals and we’re all shopping local. It’s rad,” she said. “It is about supporting one another in our businesses and also helping local artists thrive in our community.” She added that shopping locally also helps support the environment. “It reduces your carbon footprint to shop locally and also you’re able to purchase all package-free and save on single use items like plastic and unnecessary packaging,” she said. Longtime Midnight Madness enthusiast Sandra Leslie said it’s vital for Ucluelet to support its vibrant and diverse local merchant community. “If we didn’t support these stores we wouldn’t have anything in our towns that wasn’t just junk and cheap stuff and not individual,” she said.

Tofino housing project clears zoning hurdle ANDREW BAILEY andrew.bailey@westerlynews.ca

Tofino is moving ahead with its affordable housing project on Sharpe Road after hearing concerns from residents around potential environmental impacts and traffic increases as well as questions around whether local governments belong in the housing business. “The thing I heard in the public hearing that I really do want to address is the sense from some members of the community that the private market can solve our problem,” Tofino mayor Josie Osborne said during the Nov. 12th municipal council meeting. “The private market cannot solve this problem. If it could, it would have. I really believe that.” Through a partnership with the Tofino Housing Corporation, the district has laid out a 14-unit multi-family affordable housing development for a municipally owned lot at 700 Sharpe Road that Josie Osborne would be constructed and managed by Catalyst Community Developments. The roughly 0.5-acre lot was zoned as Park and Public Use District, which allows for cultural or recreational facilities, a playground, public parking and boat moorage, or a campground. Council approved rezoning the lot to allow for the residential housing project and, with that approval in place, shovels could hit the ground in early 2020, according to Tofino’s manager of community sustainability Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers told the Westerly News last week that development permits and a housing agreement still need to be worked out and a potential housing agreement bylaw is expected to land on council’s table in January. “They’ll be pretty much ready to build early in the New Year as long as they meet all the conditions of the development permit and building permit,” he said. “It should go pretty quick here. I know they want to get moving on it fast.” A housing agreement bylaw will be worked through to determine, in part, how the units will be rented and to whom they will be rented. “I want to state unequivocally, I believe so much in the municipality getting involved in the provision of below market housing,” Osborne said. “I’m not going to call it low income housing. In fact, I think that’s the wrong way to characterize this. This is about providing housing for people who live in Tofino with wages that are not unreasonable, but are still too low to be able to afford the true market price of housing.”

“The private market cannot solve this problem. If it could, it would have.” – Josie Osborne During a public hearing held on Oct. 22nd, council heard concerns from area residents around the dangers the project could pose to nearby Mackenzie Creek, a salmon-bearing stream. The land’s zoning mandates a 15-metre buffer between the creek and any construction work, but the housing project is calling for that buffer to be reduced to 10 metres. Coun. Al Anderson said he wanted to see the project move ahead, but expressed concern over encroaching on the sensitive riparian area. Coun. Duncan McMaster suggested the district has done “everything we can”to address possible complications, including collaborating with a biologist. “I don’t think there’s much more we can do, rather than just saying no,” he said. Coun. Andrea McQuade agreed. “This has been an extremely thorough, vocal and engaged process and I believe wholeheartedly that this is the right thing to do moving forward,” she said. Coun. Dan Law expressed concern over the project’s location and design. “I am concerned with the environmental impacts of Mackenzie Creek and the type of development in general, which is to bulldoze, flatten and put in a large parking lot. I think that proposes a lot of problems for runoff and the use of the land,”he said. “I would hope that in the future for low income housing or developments that there is other options than simply to flatten an area and build a large parking lot and housing.” Law later clarified that he is “100 per cent”in support of affordable housing. “I just have concerns about environmental impacts and the design considerations for this particular project,” he said. Mayor Osborne suggested any future residents of the proposed housing project must be educated on the sensitivity of the nearby stream habitat. “That, probably, is one of my biggest concerns, because I have seen it in other neighbourhoods in Tofino that are adjacent to forests right now, the number of trails and incursions that are made and it’s a natural thing that we do,” she said. Osborne also spoke to concerns residents have expressed about developments being approved within Tofino’s tsunami inundation zones. “This puts it back onto the district of Tofino to be very responsible in its need to provide strong evacuation planning and communication with that neighbourhood,” she said.

Tofino Bus closes depot in Port Alberni

The Tofino Bus depot in Port Alberni is closing, but there will still be Island-wide bus service, says the company’s general manager. “Bus service will continue, just the actual depot itself will be closing,” says Travis Wilson of Wilson Transportation. Tofino Bus was sold to Wilson’s Group in 2018. A sign went up last week in the window at the bus depot that the depot will close as of Nov. 30. People who use the bus are concerned it means the bus will no longer service Port Alberni. Wilson said there will be two different spots in Port Alberni where people will be able to pick up the inter-city bus—he will be finalizing those locations this week. Wilson is slowly remodelling its inter-city busing structure to curbside service. Tofino’s bus depot will remain the same, as it is a small place where people wait for the bus, Wilson said. Tofino doesn’t supply a depot agent anymore; the bus driver sells tickets in this case. Parksville’s bus depot closed a little while ago and patrons now pick up the bus in front of a local community centre. Courtenay’s bus depot is already closed; patrons are picked up at a BC Transit bus stop now at the corner of Kilpatrick and 27th Street. Wilson said he hopes to find a community centre or business in Port Alberni where people who are paying cash or with a credit card can still buy tickets in person. People will still be able to buy tickets from the bus driver. “Drivers are equipped to sell tickets in every market,” he added. Whether Tofino Bus continues with shipping is to be determined, Wilson said. “The freight market on inter-city bus service isn’t what it used to be.” They have offered Vancouver Island-only service since September 2018, after Greyhound Package Express was discontinued. “Freight is being reviewed to determine viability with what the service has now become.” – www.albernivalleynews.com

Webb said Canada has a history of assimilationist educational policy towards indigenous children, specifically the residential school system, which has contributed to the disparities between indigenous and non-indigenous students today. She said the court should consider the “broader” historical context when rendering a decision. “It would be an error for this court to consider [the case] in isolation from that broader context,” she said, adding that evidence suggests that 14 to 15 per cent of students at John Howitt Elementary are indigenous. In order to address the “horrors” of the residential school system and to make the public education system in British Columbia more inclusive for everyone, Webb said the province began integrating a new curriculum with a focus on indigenous learning in 2016. She said the smudging ceremony reflects the efforts made by the school to implement that curriculum. – www.nanaimobulletin.com

A sign was recently posted in the Port Alberni bus depot’s window advising that it will be closing on Nov. 30.

ISLAND IN BRIEF

Province argues for smudging in schools, says it relates to curriculums A five-day hearing for a Supreme Court case that could determine whether indigenous smudging ceremonies can happen in public schools concluded today in a Nanaimo courtroom.

Candice Servatius, a Christian mother from Port Alberni, filed a petition against Alberni School District 70, claiming that her daughter’s religious rights were infringed on when forced to participate in a Nuu-chah-nulth smudging ceremony at John Howitt Elementary School in 2015. Servatius is seeking a court-ordered ban on the practice in schools across the province. The Attorney General of B.C. is also named as a respondent in Servatius’s petition. Throughout the week, lawyers from

all sides presented their arguments in front of Justice Douglas Thompson, who will be ruling on the matter. During Friday’s session, Katie Webb, legal counsel for the attorney general’s office, told the court that the province takes no position with regards to the accusation that the school board wronged Servatius or her daughter, but opposes any order that would ban smudging ceremonies in schools. “The proposed order would be in conflict with aspects of the provincial curriculum requiring the incorporation of indigenous knowledge,” she said.

Shawnigan man found guilty of murder in California Anthony Michael Kubica has been found guilty of first-degree murder in a California courtroom. The 63-year-old, originally from Shawnigan Lake, was convicted by jury on Nov. 19 of killing Marie Darling, 78, 29 years ago after just a single day of deliberations in Banning, California. The jury found him guilty of kidnapping and murdering the wealthy Palm Springs resident who disappeared from her home in 1990. Her body was found wrapped in a sleeping bag by hikers alongside a highway, with her feet bound in duct tape. An autopsy performed on the body at the time found the cause of death to be blunt force trauma to the head. Kubica’s sentencing is set for Jan. 10. His lawyers have already filed a motion to dismiss the verdict. – www.cowichanvalleycitizen.com
