Campbell River’s Coast Discovery Inn will re-open Monday May 12. Campbell River’s downtown hotel closed its doors March 7 after a labour dispute. General Manager/Owner Sukhy Bains confirmed Thursday that all 35 employees would be coming back with the same pay scale, wages and benefits. Bains also confirmed the hotel would re-open its restaurant on June 1. He said the hotel would be undergoing many renovations in preparation for the upcoming season. Bains, whose hotel has helped many local charities, including the Rod Brind’Amour Cystic Fibrosis Golf Tournament and was the weekly meeting venue for the Noon Rotary Club of Campbell River, said it has been a difficult time but the future looks bright. “I want to thank our community, our guests and our clients for your patience during our recent closure,” he said. “Your support over the years has meant so much to me and to

TimberWest booting campers, anglers out No trespass signs up from Sooke to Gold River NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

TimberWest has posted no trespassing notices on Vancouver Island locations long-used as recreational sites by residents and tourists alike. TimberWest owns large swaths of land from Sooke to Gold River on the Island and recently posted signs at sites and on logging roads warning people to stay out or face the consequences. Sue Handel, Manager of Communications for TimberWest, said the company posted the signs and notices on its land, not on recreational sites. “TimberWest has posted ‘no-camping’ signs in locations on its private forest lands that aren’t, and never were, officially designated for recreational use,” she wrote in response to a Courier-Islander inquiry. “We do however recognize there is a demand for camping in the area and, starting this summer, have formally designated a supervised 10-site campground at Willington Point on Upper Quinsam Lake. Reservation information is available at www.timberwest.com. There is a 14-

A notice posted at Fry Lake. night maximum stay.” On its website the company gives further reasons for the signage. “As a private land owner it is in TimberWest’s interest to manage access to its lands. TimberWest manages access to its private managed forest lands for a number of reasons including concern for public safety, protection of assets, to mitigate liability, to reduce the risk of vandalism, and to mitigate the risk of wildfire. TimberWest says it pays

over half a million dollars each year in fire suppression costs The company also says that every two-to-three years, large wildfires on TimberWest lands cost over a million dollars to put out; fires it says are person-caused (preventable) and not related to TimberWest operations They also say that vandalism to TimberWest gates, seedlings, and roads is a regular occurrence. The company says access to their land is managed using signage, gates, deactivation of inactive roads and in some instances, formal land use agreements with parties who meet TimberWest’s terms and conditions. They also said areas of restricted access change geographically and seasonally in light of factors such as harvesting operations and hot, dry weather conditions. The company says access restrictions remain necessary for certain portions of TimberWest’s private lands, however designated areas of TimberWest land may be open to public access.

Hosptial Foundation gets OK for Scrap Metal Challenge COURIER-ISLANDER

The Campbell River Hospital Foundation will once again be allowed to keep a scrap metal bin at the city’s Dogwood Operations facility as part of their Scrap Metal Challenge. In two years the Scrap Metal Challenge has raised $36,000 for the foundation, said CRHF Event Manager Patti Mertz at council. Mertz also said the foundation expects those totals to climb with the addition of junk

cars into the donation mix. ABC recycling and Coastland Towing and Transport are the main event sponsors. The public is also invited to join in, dropping off their scrap metal in a bin provided by a local business or at ABC Recycling. By donating your scrap metal, either from your home or business, you will be helping your community raise money for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation and vital health equipment.

Resident wants law against feeding eagles SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

It’s not well-fed pigeons that Lisa Schofield is worried about, it’s the eagles who are being fed by people in residential areas. And that is not boding well for cats, people, or the birds themselves. Schofield wants the city bylaw changed so that it is also illegal to feed the larger scavenger and predatory birds, and not just

pigeons. She has been trying to get this done since 2010. “I would like to petition the City of Campbell River to pass a new bylaw to prevent the feeding of eagles and other wildlife within the city limits, especially in residential neighbourhoods,” said Schofield in a letter to then-Mayor Charlie Cornfield back in 2010. “I have come into your offices and spoken to the bylaw officer about the current laws and there is only

one that prohibits the feeding of pigeons. If it is because of the mess that they make, please picture what it is like to have hundreds of much larger scavenger and predatory birds defecating on our new home, yard items, and vehicles.” Since moving into her new home in Ocean Grove, Schofield has witnessed residents feeding eagles that then come into local yards and show no fear of people. Her nine year old Siamese cat, Leo, went missing on Jan. 15, 2010, and in her efforts to find him, she met neighbours who said they felt threatened and terrorized by two eagles in particular, and not only

Thankfully it was not our going on and there was a feeding Leo but something a person had frenzy across from our house,” fed them just minutes before. These two eagles have been trained to come to our yards for food, not to the ocean where they should be hunting naturally.’ Mayor Walter Jakeway responded to Schofield’s renewed concern in light of Courier-Islander coverage of recent, suspected cat killings. “I can understand (Schofield’s) concern and frustration,” he said. “I have never seen eagles being Now fed by humans in Campbell River. In-Stock! It seems like a waste of time. We live right next to a very busy eagle tree at Rotary Beach and the birds seem to do quite well catching their own food. We also suspect that we lost our little cat “Gus” to an eagle in 2004.” While Jakeway doesn’t disagree with trying to keep people from feeding wild birds, he said he has trouble enacting bylaws that he knows will never get enforced. “To deceive taxpayers into thinking that local government will perform a function, knowing full well that it will never happen is dishonest,” he said. “The city has trouble (long delays) enforcing public nuisance and dilapidated building laws and recently it has struggled with parking enforcement. Monitoring and controlling the feeding of birds could be even more awkward. The city of Campbell Enter ou r River does not have the capacity Jewellery Box to enforce most bylaws in a Draw timely manner.”

Quote of the day: Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives. Andy Rooney

‘This land is their land, this land is their land’ No more Mr. Nice Guy? Is that what it’s about? TimberWest has recently posted some pretty straightforward notices at many locations on their private managed forest lands on Vancouver Island. ‘No Trespassing’ sums it up pretty well. The sites are of course used by various members of the general public, from families, to anglers, to recreationalists. It has been a long-held tradition that these lands have been used for camping, boating and fishing. Now, however, TimberWest has had enough, it seems. The notice that was posted at a local lake campsite was clear: “Please be advised that you are

camped on private property and considered in trespass. We request that you remove your camping units within 14 days, commencing May 1. Those in non-compliance after May 14 will be removed with no further notification.” It is not sure how extensive these postings are, but Sue Handel, Manager of Communications for TimberWest, said the company “has posted ‘no-camping’ signs in locations on its private forest lands that aren’t, and never were, officially designated for recreational use.” That could be a lot of signs. The company can’t be blamed in some circumstances for keeping the public out of some of their lands. The first concern is

safety and fire hazards. TimberWest pays over $500,000 each year in fire suppression costs. Another concern is the morons who go to the sites and leave behind mounds of garbage which the company then has to deal with. For the most part, those using the sites are responsible families and individuals who know the first rule of camping — leave the site cleaner than how you found it. The steps by TimberWest come at a time when the camping season is just heating up. They own vast areas of land from Sooke to Gold River, that could be putting a severe demand on available camp sites, even though in

responding to the no trespass signs, Handel said TimberWest has for the first time provided a 10-site supervised campground at Willington Point on Upper Quinsam Lake. And they’re taking reservations as of now. Generous. These closures will have a devastating affect on tourism. But the truth is that the company has the right to manage access to their lands. And there’s nothing anyone can do about it, except find another camping spot if you’re lucky. Or wait until the provincial government allows TimberWest to turn the forest lands into subdivisions and you can buy back a piece of your Vancouver Island.

» Reader Feedback // Letters: editor@courierislander.com Seniors have earned better respect than this Re: Editorial in the Friday May 2 Courier-Islander. I, as a over-the-hill senior, as is my wife, both read this pitiful treatment of the thousands of us who have worked all our lives, paid the “taxes” and paid the price that kept this country moving ahead and now we cannot even get a meeting place in Campbell River to call our own, where we can meet and congregate and socialize. This is a sad reflection of what society thinks of us it seems. The theme in this article as usual returns to what benefits the “businesses” of this town could reap if we seniors had a place, in town to call our own. What else is new? The council has reluctantly agreed that we should have such a place, how big hearted of them. FINALLY. It is damn time that Campbell River and any other town who has not accommodated us seniors with places to meet do so. We have earned that right. So just maybe this newspaper can push our council and all others to get off their collective duffs and find/ build us deserving seniors a place of our own. We have earned it. K.

Chances are you’ll take a Mexican vacation next fall. Chances are you’ll find yourself on a sandy beach overlooking the Gulf, slurping back a Margarita as you work on your tan. Chances are you’ll notice a pudgy guy in sunglasses and Bermuda shorts doing the same thing in a chaise lounge next to you. Chances are that’ll be Ian Thow. You remember him — the guy who, as an ‘investment adviser’ in Victoria, bilked at least 20 clients — senior citizens, mostly — out of their life savings — eight million

FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2014 dollars that we know about — while he lived high on the hog, in a fivestar condo with a private plane at his disposal, enjoying all the perks that go with having millions of other peoples’ dollars in your pocket. Yeah, well. The Canadian Justice system caught up with Mister Thow and came down on him with both boots. He was tried, convicted and sentenced to nine years in the slammer back in 2010. Less than three years later, the Parole Board of Canada has decided that Mister Thow has suffered enough. The board has okayed a one week Mexican vacation for Mis-

ter Thow next October. But he’ll be watched by guards, right? The Mexican constabulary will keep him under tabs? He’ll wear an ankle monitor at least? Nah. That would be too...intrusive. A spokesman for the board notes that Mister Thow ‘has made a commitment to living pro-socially’. Whatever that means. As for the possibility that after his fun in the sun, Thow might just decide to, you know, not...board the Air Canada flight back home? “The Correctional Services and the parole officer are of the opinion that that is not a likelihood.” Ah, well. That’s alright then. Besides, it’s not as if Thow

As far as the supervisor getting a pink slip, she got hers the same day you got yours, we all did. Tired of the BS in the workplace from those who want a happy, friendly, environment. Not afraid of posting my name unlike the other two writers. Debbie A camper full of thorns to TimberWest. We use a campsite or actually a clearing on a lake which has been used for about 45 years. We learned this from some of the oldtimers who go there to launch their boats, belly boats, canoes and fish for the day or weekend. The campsite is always left much better than we find it, as winter weekend parties leave litter all over the place. One year we even loaded a pick-up truck full of garbage. Anyway my point is that we were told by a TimberWest employee that they might close this site down, maybe half way through summer or at the end of summer, for logging and adding more sites. Well on May 1 we arrived at the site to find what I consider a nasty notice. Nothing about logging or more sites, just ‘you’re trespassing.’ Does this arrogant company own the land or just

the timber rights? We believe that if the notice was explaining the situation better we would not be as upset as we are. I have a suspicion that TimberWest employees will be on that site, probably by the long weekend. On the TimberWest website I found that gates and signs are up from Sooke to Gold River. Where do we go? Thanks TimberWest (NOT). A PO’d Taxpayer

He hit 37 banks in New York before they finally took him down. Mind you he didn’t exactly rob the banks. He didn’t take any money at all. He swiped their front door mats. “I sell them to bodegas,” explained Footman. “Their floors get wet.” Mister Footman is awaiting sentencing as I write. Betcha he does more time than Ian Thow and Earl Jones combined.

Playthings For Your Plaything

Roses&Thorns I find it necessary to let the public know that the housekeeping supervisor at the Campbell River Hospital is not going around the hallways swearing and yelling at her employees. If these people witnessing all these outbursts and writing the thorns in the paper are so concerned, why are they not going straight to the department manager, the site director, or security. The reason is, it is a inside job, this is a group of disgruntled housekeepers, who have concocted these stories and maybe have their buddies in the public sending them in. Some arrive at work armed with the thorns and roses article with photocopies to pass out, so they are definitely aware when it will be in the paper. A lot of the wording they are using is just not known to the general public, like policies, and job titles, clothing, all kinds of clothes are worn, I have seen doctors in shorts and flip-flops, even a kilt, jeans, professional people in VIHA do not have a dress code. Since they also know about the bullying and fowl language they should also know about the Respectful Workplace Policy. Most of the other employees can pretty much figure out the several other housekeepers that are involved, these people should get over it and do the job they are paid to do. If they can’t

It’s an idea that’s used various business promotions, so why not with a municipality. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation believes local governments should be actively recruiting corporate sponsorships for publicly provided facilities and services. Campbell River City Manager Andy Laidlaw says this is a good idea when used appropriately. “In larger communities, corporate sponsorship can provide financial benefits to local government while providing branding opportunities for business,” Laidlaw says. “These are often the naming of recreation facilities such as arenas or pools. Many arenas in Canada have score clocks and perimeter boards and other facilities branded.” In smaller communities where businesses are often smaller or franchise operations, it’s more difficult. “In these municipalities, local governments are reticent to compete with the many local volunteer community organizations for limited sponsorship funds,” said Laidlaw. “Sports, cultural, and environmental organizations all seek local sponsorship from their business community.” So what would it be like if the city actually started competing for funding that would otherwise go to a non-profit organization? “The idea contradicts the underlying philosophy of local government support for community or volunteer organizations,” said Laidlaw. And, with limited opportun-

✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔ ✔

ities to gain corporate interest, “branding” or sponsorship must offer business something of value — at the very least community goodwill or name recognition, added Laidlaw. But it still is not as simple as it may seem. “Local government staff are hired for professional expertise in providing community services, and navigating the complex matrix of the marketing business is typically out of our realm,” Laidlaw said. “Further, it’s not clear which corporate logo the public would be willing to accept on, say, emergency or civic vehicles. In the extreme, imagine civic employees wearing sponsorship clothing like a NASCAR driver promoting corporate interests.” And then there is always the question of taste and morals. What if Sportsplex worker uniforms were sponsored by a condom company? There are all sorts of pit falls

that have to be navigated. And Laidlaw agrees. He said corporate sponsorships must also be carefully considered to minimize the chance of aligning the local government with a business or activity that members of the public might object to. While looking for corporate sponsorships is viable for local governments to consider, Laidlaw summed it up: “We must be aware of the public’s acceptance for branding of taxpayer resources with corporate logos and do our best not to compete with community organizations who also seek sponsorship support.” Current examples of local sponsorship are: · Splash Park · Lacrosse Box · Nunns Creek Ball Diamonds · Recreation programs — multiple local businesses contribute supplies, food, etc. ncameron@courierislander.com

Great Strides enters 10th anniversary

Scott Cessford Planning For Life

COURIER-ISLANDER

As an owner of a corporation, you have several innovative strategies available to help you reduce or defer corporate income tax and enhance your income in retirement. Individual Pension Plan (IPP) An IPP is an employersponsored registered pension plan that enables you to make potentially higher taxdeductible contributions compared to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RSP). Your corporation claims the tax deductions, as opposed to an RSP, where you claim them personally. You can also make tax-deductible contributions for past service or to “top up” your IPP. IPPs are ideal for self-employed incorporated business owners or professionals aged 40-71 who earn at least $127,611 annually. Unlike a regular pension plan, an IPP is usually established for just one person, although a spouse employed by the same company can also be a plan member in some cases. While offering several key advantages, there are some considerations with an IPP. First, it essentially replaces your RSP, rather than supplementing it. There are also addi-

tional administrative requirements, including an actuarial valuation every three years. Retirement compensation arrangement (RCA) Often referred to as the “super-sized pension”, an RCA is a non-registered plan set up by your company to provide benefits when you retire. An RCA is designed to reduce the “pension gap” that high-income executives and business owners face due to contribution caps on regular registered retirement plans. Because of these caps, high-income earners are often unable to contribute enough to ensure they receive an adequate retirement income, considered by many financial planners to be 70% of pre-retirement income. An RCA can help you overcome this shortfall. With an RCA, your company makes 100% taxdeductible contributions, and you don’t pay personal taxes until you start receiving payments from the RCA after you retire. This article appears in the RBC Dominion Securities guidebook, Family Wealth Management – Ten Strategies to Build and Protect Your Family’s Wealth.

his year marks the 10th year for the Great Strides Walk in Canada and Campbell River has supported all 10. This year the 3 km walk will begin at Penfield School with registration at 10:30 and the walk starting at 11 a.m. The walk will be followed by a barbecue thanks to the generosity of local Dairy Queen owner Jim Costain and his fellow Kinsmen who will help out. Other major sponsors include Marine Harvest, Boston Pizza, Quinsman Coal, Capacity Forest Products and Thrifty Foods. Media sponsors are 97.3 Eagle FM and the CourierIslander newspaper. Joining the walk for the first time will be two and a half year old Maysa Milligan, who has cystic fibrosis, and her family. “I am so grateful for all the funds being raised to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis,” said Sarah Milligan, Maysa’s mother. “I have so much hope that Maysa will live a full life thanks to people who support events like the Great Strides Walk. “ While at this time there is no cure for cystic fibrosis there is hope that a cure will be found soon. Each week in Canada, two chil-

18 || CAMPBELL RIVER COURIER-ISLANDER || FRIDAY, MAY 9, 2014 CLARIFICATION The following are clarifications from a story published May 7 in the Courier-Islander. Leona Adams and her group are not banding all the 1,000 geese that are estimated to be in the estuary, only

some of them. Also, the Campbell River Environmental Committee did not put the ‘carex’ in the estuary but is protecting it. Adams advocacy for the 9.5 acre site as mistakenly reported is for the 3.5 acre site only.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Adams has long argued that the Quinsam Coal mine continually exceeds water quality guidelines, not waste permit standards. Adams was reported as saying that Quinsam Coal effluent threatens aquatic life in the Quinsam and Campbell Rivers. In fact, Adams PRESENTED BY COURTENAY

The Strathcona Regional District cannot consider any representations made after the close of the public hearing.

independent scientific evidence for all industry is a threat to the environment. Adams did not believe the plans for the construction of Walmart could be modified and still believes it should not have been built and as of today still does not belong in the estuary.

Purpose of proposed Bylaw No. 194: In general terms the bylaw, if adopted, would rezone the subject area from Rural One (RU-1) to a newly created Institutional Two (P-2) zone to permit private educational institutional use consisting of the following principal uses: conference facility, research laboratory, data processing centre, administrative offices, and dormitory use. The proposed new P-2 zone contains regulations related to such matters as the number of buildings per lot, overall lot coverage, occupancy levels for conference attendance and dormitory use. Additionally, the proposed bylaw, if adopted, will introduce definitions in the zoning bylaw for the terms ‘conference facility’, ‘data processing centre’ and ‘research facility’.

The public hearing will be held by a delegation of Electoral Area directors representing the Strathcona Regional District Board. Anyone who believes their interests are affected by the proposed bylaw will be given an opportunity to be heard or to file a written submission at the public hearing.

Andrews mines more Danish gold Former Tyee win his fifth Danish Elite League playoff championship playing with SonderjyskE KEN ZAHARIA COURIER-ISLANDER

Another dramatic game seven win, another Danish Elite League championship, and a fifth gold helmet to go on Campbell River’s Daryl Andrews burgeoning trophy case. Playing in this seven season with SonderjyskE, Andrews, 37, collected an assist in a 4-2 game seven victory over Herning Blue Fox in the Danish Elite League (DEL) championship series. Last season SonderjyskE also won a DEL title in a game seven win against Fredrickshavn. Andrews said it was a tough series against Herning, especially trying to create any offence. “Our team lost the first two games, as Herning plays a very defensive system,” said Andrews, who was a New Jersey Devils seventh round pick in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft and played five seasons in the American Hockey League before heading over the Atlantic to ply his blueline skills in Europe. “It was hard to create offence, we changed a few things, and came back and won three in a row before losing game six. In the final game we scored all four goals during the second period.” This championship was special for Andrews and his SonderjyskE teammates coming in front of the hometown fans. “It was great to win at home, in our new arena that opened three years ago,” said Andrews who played Tyees rep hockey in Campbell River through to second year peewee.

thing he never would have though to have happened when he first went to play in Europe in the 2004-05 season in England for the Sheffield Steelers. “I never imagined playing for the same team (SonderjyskE ) for so many seasons, it’s been a great experience,” said Andrews who is back home in Canada in Calgary.

Andrews is excited looking forward to see what next season brings, “After 14 seasons playing I am not ready to retire,” said 6’2” 205 lb. defenceman. “My body feels great, I’ve been lucky to have never had a serious injury. I’m not sure yet as to what I’m going to do next season, but the plan is to play another season in Europe.”

Back Yard Adventure

ROLLER DERBY

Remember when you were James Durand a little kid playing in the My Spin On backyard. That tree became a Your Ride castle, the big cardboard box became a fort, and figuring out how to climb up on the roof of the house was a whole day project. We found adventure in what ever we had at our disposal and had loads of fun doing it. As we grew we all ventured off our block, into the next town or maybe around the world. The adventures expanded and the experiences were enhanced along the way. But do we ever forget the simplicity of those early days and making the best of what we had? When it comes to mountain biking, once we’ve ridden for a while, we can all get bored of our local trails and wish we had more riding, more variety and more adventure. Well, if we take a slightly different approach to our riding, we do have those things. A couple guys I know through the shop headed out last week to explore the back roads and some of the local lakes. It ended up being 138 km of mountain biking in one day. A great experience that was very different than the norm. This coming Saturday another couple guys have decided to ride every trail in the Snowden Forest. That’s 100 km of technical single track in one day...a huge challenge and a great way to change the feel of trails they’ve ridden hundreds of times. Now you don’t have to commit to massive distances to add a bit of adventure to your regular rides. Just switch it up a bit. Start from a different parking lot than normal and the ride will have a new feel, ride your favourite trails backwards once in a while and you’ll barely recognize them, or take out some new riders and show them some good ride loops; you’ll see them differently yourself next time you ride. We don’t all have the time to travel to the more famous riding locations around the world, but we are very, very lucky to have such amazing riding in our backyard. If we take the time to look at the scenery a bit, change up the ride style a little or set some small challenges, the adventure will come back into your riding before you know it. I’m James Durand and I’m Goin’ Ridin’.

The local roller derby season begins this Saturday, May 10 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. A doubleheader event hosted by the Brick House Betties will debut the Betties’ junior derby team, the Stone Cold Stellas, made up of young skaters ages 12-17. In their first public game, the Stone Cold Stellas will take on the Candy Crushers, Nanaimo’s junior derby team. Junior derby players start out playing with positional blocking only, but these skaters have advanced to play a contact game. The Stellas are coached by two of the Betties’ veteran skaters, Wright Krazy and Icesis. “Sometimes coaching the juniors is like herding cats,” said coach Icesis, “but the light bulb has gone on for them lately. I’m really excited to see our juniors play.” The Brick House Betties will dish out hits, 70s-style, in the second game of the night against Nanaimo’s Brass Knuckle Derby Dames.

It’s a rare sight to see one or maybe two deuces on your scorecard, but how about three! That’s what Ann Vogt did in Storey Creek Ladies Club play Tuesday, April 29. Vogt holed out her birdie putts on the par three holes No. 3, 5 and 13 at Storey Creek. Despite the triple birdie day, Vogt didn’t top play, that was carded by Faye Dahoy with an 85. Julia Free and Linda Hayes tied for second.

Low net went to Jacquie Tarasoff with a 71, followed by Brenda Kelly in second, Nanette Manson and Liza Hadfield tied for third. Last Thursday, May 1, the game was Substitute Par (you can substitute your worst hole with a par). Mary Jane Kerr finished first with a 39, Cathy McCartney was runner-up. There was a tie, at 31 each, for low net between Bernice Melissa and Nancy Curley. Angela Lee was third, Julie Brown was fourth.

Sunday’s play was a Triple Play Fun Day Partner Tournament. Kerr and Sandy Anderson finished first, Jacquie Tarasoff and Patty Bueckert second, Betty Campbell and Trish Piercy third, Free and Hadfield fourth.

Strathcona Nordics want to help your garden grow COURIER-ISLANDER

The Strathcona Nordics youth and teen racing teams would like to give a boost to your flower garden and lawn. They are selling bags of SkyRocket (a biosolids fertilizer from the Regional District with guaranteed amazing results) in Campbell River this Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10. The Nordics say, “At just $5/30 litre bag, this is a great opportunity to help your garden and to help the club’s young racers

at the same time!” You can drive up to the Shar-Kare parking lot at 950 Ironwood Road in Campbell River and they’ll load the bags into your car or truck for you this Friday, from 3-6 p.m. and Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. (or until supplies last). The Nordics would like to thank to Shar-Kare for their generous support. All proceeds go to support Strathcona Nordics Devo and Junior Racing teams. Visit StrathconaNordics.com to learn more about the club.

Thinking of installing a secondary suite?

301 St. Ann’s Road Campbell River, BC V9W 4C7 Telephone: 250-286-5700 info@campbellriver.ca www.campbellriver.ca

BIKE ROUTES

Do you have enough room for required parking spaces? In addition to the two spaces required for the main house, one more parking space must be provided for a secondary suite. Are you in the correct zone for a secondary suite? Only certain zones in the City permit secondary suites. If your property is not located in a zone that permits secondary suites, you will need to seek approval from the City to change it. Do you have a building permit? Apply at the City for a building permit to ensure that a secondary suite is constructed to meet health and safety requirements of the BC Building Code. Does your site require a development permit due to steep slopes, streams or eagle trees? Check the City’s Official Community Plan on the website, or visit us at City Hall to find out.

QUESTIONS? The Land Use Services Department can help you through this process. Please contact us at 250-286-5726 or visit us at City Hall.

It’s time to get fit to a new beat! Sign up now for Drums Alive – a fun new fitness class provided by the City of Campbell River Recreation & Culture Department at the Sportsplex.

“Drums Alive fits every age group and level of fitness, and it combines all the benefits of a traditional physical fitness program with the positive combined effects to the brain of music and rhythm.” The first class is free and runs Saturday, May 10 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Sportsplex. Bring along a 55-centimetre fitness ball. Classes will continue May 17 and 31 and June 7, 21, 28 for five sessions. Pre-registration is

required for the free class and the five sessions. The cost of the five-session program is $64. For more information, please call the Community Centre, 250-286-1161, or the Sportsplex, 250-923-7911.

Residential Curbside Recycling is EXPANDING

If you live in Campbell River and currently take part in residential curbside Blue Box recycling, your options expand on May 19. Here’s what you need to know about the change:

What happens on May 19? Non-profit organization Multi-Material BC (MMBC) will assume responsibility for managing residential packaging and printed paper recycling in Campbell River and other communities across BC. For more information and a list of items that can now go in your Blue Box visit: www.campbellriver.ca/city-services/garbage-recycling-yard-waste

Recycling Depots – CAMPBELL RIVER There are changes to local recycling depots too. Here’s an overview of changes starting May 19:

Campbell River Waste Management Centre, Argonaut Rd.

• Will expand to accept new materials including plastic foam packaging (i.e. Styrofoam), plastic bags/film wrap, glass

Did you know there are more than 85 km of bicycle routes throughout Campbell River? They come in all shapes and sizes, from multi-use pathways (such as the ERT and the Sea Walk) to paved shoulders (such as Highway 19A) to local bikeways (such as Murphy Street and Galerno Road). Watch for “Bike Route” signs and bicycle pavement markings.

Sportsplex / Strathcona Gardens Recycling Depots

• Will continue to be drop-off location for cardboard, hard plastics, and metal containers. • Will not be expanding to take new types of items

Island Return-It Centre, Willow St. and Suncoast Eco Depot, Maple St.

• Will continue to offer refunds for refundable items. • Will expand to offer packaging and printed paper recycling.

For up-to-date information on local depots visit www.cswm.ca/depots

Ask Luke HOME SWEET HOME HOME SWEET HOME

If a secondary suite was constructed without a permit, now what? To make an existing secondary suite legal, the property must be zoned appropriately and a building permit issued. The zone makes the secondary suite a permitted use, and the building permit ensures the suite meets the minimum safety standards for secondary suites as required by the 2012 BC Building Code. Protect your interests: Not having a building permit, or correct zoning for secondary suites may have implications for home insurance.

COURIER-ISLANDER

• You can now include NEW items in your Blue Box such as milk cartons, aerosol cans, spiral wound containers (for frozen juice, cookie dough, etc.), hot and cold drink cups (cardboard and plastic), plastic plant pots and trays • As before, no glass should go into your Blue Box but it can be brought to depots • There will be no change to your curbside recycling pick up schedule, day, or contractor

There are size restrictions for a secondary suite. • Secondary suites can be no larger than 90 square metres (approximately 970 square feet)

• Secondary suites can have a maximum of two bedrooms

New Drums Alive fitness class

If you live in Campbell River

Before you set up a rental suite with separate cooking, sleeping and bathroom facilities inside your house or on your property, consider this:

• Secondary suites can be no larger than 40% of the main house
