Hydro to build Quinsam Crossing office building and lease space at CR Common By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander The next year is going to be a huge game of musical chairs for about 90 BC Hydro employees who work out of Campbell River. With the almost $1 billion John Hart Generating Station relocation project starting to roll, BC Hydro will be building new offices on the We Wai Kai (Cape Mudge) First Nation’s Quinsam Crossing development. That will be the new home of transmission and distribution staff currently working out of the Evergreen Road site in Campbell River. Meanwhile, staff at the generating station site will move to new digs in Photo by Barb Akelaitis the Campbell River Common mall. Depending on the eventual relocation of the generating station, that also may be their permanent home once A group of avid Beaver Lodge Land users came across this young black bear in a tree Wednesday morning. the project is complete. The 20th anniversary of the BLL was Saturday, marking the year when the lands were saved from becoming “There will be some shuffling a housing development. The bear was up the tree on McIver Trail, which was named after Don McIver whose going on over the next year with hard work and perseverance helped saved the forest lands in the middle of the city. some permanent and temporary

moves,” says BC Hydro spokesperson Stephen Watson. “Our generation staff will eventually need to move twice.” For several years BC Hydro was looking to relocate its aged Evergreen Road office and eventually decided on the We Wai Kai lands. A deal was signed in 2011 for a long-term lease. Construction of the building will begin this summer. BC Hydro says it will provide more information to the community on the new office building in the next few weeks. The John Hart staff will be moving to the mall likely around the end of September. A building permit will be submitted to the City of Campbell River early next week with the renovations beginning soon. The permanent office location for staff will depend on where the new John Hart Generating Station is located. If it’s located to the south of the existing station then the current administration office will have to be removed. Continued on page 4.

$57,000 raised in Relay for Life in Campbell River By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

While the final numbers still have to be tabulated in Victoria, the Campbell River Relay for Life has raised over $57,000 from the 12-hour overnight fund raising event that took place on the weekend. This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Society that brings communities together to celebrate life and fight cancer. The Courier-Islander caught up with team members to find out how their experience was. Tanya Gogo of Mainstream Canada said their team raised $1,000 in relay donations and $600 from their salmon barbecue. “The experience was awesome as usual,” she said. “I walked all 12 hours and took minimal breaks because it was so cold. I powered through though for Ross and my family members.” Dana Henderson of team “Do it for Dana” raised $955 “But we still have some monies coming in from our barbecue fund raiser down at the Discovery Harbor fuel dock,” she said. “The experience of Relay for Life is like no other. For myself I feel empowered and so honoured to be around all those surviving and fighting cancer. It’s very therapeutic and just nice to get together with friends and to make new friends.”

Henderson said highlights of the night included the warmup before the survivor lap and walking the survivor lap with the cancer survivors, hearing the speakers talk about their cancer experiences and being there to tell their story. “Unfortunately I did get tired due to the medication for my cancer treatment,” said Henderson. “I now have arthritis, so I couldn’t do as many laps as I would have liked. But I will do it again next year and will participate each year I am cancer free. It’s a great way to meet people who feel and understand what you are going through. People sometimes look at you and see that you look fine on the outside but some people don’t know what you go through on the inside mentally, emotionally, spiritually. Relay for Life has made me realize there is life after cancer, it’s never a guarantee but I look at life in a whole different way. I feel so blessed to be here and I want to help any way I can to win this fight against cancer. I want to show my two sons to never give up, stay positive and anything is possible.” Brenda Duffy and sons Korey, 14, and Tyler, 11, were “Digging for a Cure”, relaying for the boys’ grandfather, Les Doherty. The young brothers said they raised over $7,000 as Nystar gave the team a $5,000 donation. “The experience was good,” said Korey. “It

If that happens, contingencies are in place for the Quinsam Crossing office design so that it can be extended to include the generation staff, said Watson. “Under that scenario all BC Hydro staff will be at one work location,” says Watson. “However, if the generation station is located anywhere else on the property then the existing administration office at John Hart will stay and the employees will be able

Now that’s a real ‘hangover’ Approved plan could

North Vancouver Island RCMP traffic service officers may make your hangover even worse. That’s if you don’t give your body enough time to expel all that booze you were chugging the night before. On the weekend, bright and early in the morning, RCMP set up a check stop on Cumberland Road, in Courtenay and another in Campbell River. They were looking for people who thought they had slept one off. Within the span of a few hours

they identified four souses who were served Immediate Roadside Prohibitions and had their vehicles impounded. The following day, the unit set up a stop check in Campbell River. That ‘good morning’ check stop resulted in three Immediate Roadside Prohibitions and three vehicle impoundments. In most of the cases encountered, the drivers were on their way to work, say RCMP. “The public is reminded that

going to sleep for a few hours after a night of drinking does not ensure sobriety in the morning,” said an RCMP press release. “The more alcohol a person consumes, the longer it takes for their body to metabolize the drug out of the body. “So if you may have overdone your merry making the night before, please use a cab ride or a sober friend as a means of getting around the morning after. “Remember the rule, don’t drink and drive.”

Reedel to be back in court on Friday William Irving Reedel, 27, of Campbell River, will be back in Victoria court on Friday after being remanded in custody and charged with the home invasion and assault on an elderly man and his 59-year-old daughter in their Saanich home on May 20. Reedel, who was arrested for this crime in Campbell River, is well known to police and the courts here with many convictions for violent offences.

He has appeared in Campbell River court on a variety of charges nine times since 2006. Prior to coming to Campbell River, Reedel lived in Abbotsford and appeared in court there on seven times between 1996 and 2007. He has also appeared twice to answer to charges in Chilliwack and Smithers in 2002. Police continue to seek public help in locating a light-brown 1999 Toyota Camry stolen from the home. The BC licence plate number is HWM644. Saanich police ask anyone with information to call the police major-crime tip line at 250-475-4356 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477

e are people hemmed in by time. We measure our lives and distances by time. Then we try to measure our universe with time (light years). But we struggle to understand time. Even when we talk of thousands of years, our minds cannot comprehend it. So when we think of the word “eternity”, it is totally inconceivable.

Francis Schrieffer wrote a book entitled, “How Then Shall We Live?” It may seem out of our comfort zone, but it is very important to think of our future and our destiny. We are invited to think of living our lives in light of eternal values, knowing that we will be facing God to give an account of our lives. Choosing to live our lives knowing that God sees and knows all that we do gives us a greater perspective on life as a whole. This makes

me realize that my choices in life not only affect me, and others, it also affects my eternal destiny. I once was afraid to die because I did not know what was on the other side of the grave. Then there was a time I committed my life to Jesus and asked Him to forgive my sins and to help me live a life that would be fulfilling and purposeful. The Bible has become my reference book and daily guide. I encourage you to search out the truth. God will show Himself to you because He is a God of truth, grace and love. He desires us to come to Him in prayer. God will not fail you.

create waste diversion rate of 70 per cent

A recently approved plan may achieve a waste diversion rate for the region of 70 per cent. The Comox Strathcona waste management (CSWM) service says it has received approval of the solid waste management plan (CSSWMP) from Terry Lake, Minister of Environment (MoE). The SWMP is a guiding document that identifies how the region will manage waste now and into the future. The plan prepared by AECOM Canada Ltd., dated December 2012, outlines enhanced waste and organics reduction, reuse and recycling. After full implementation, the CS-SWMP is projected to achieve a waste diversion rate for this region of over 70 per cent. The plan that was submitted to the MoE for approval was the combined effort of 22 representatives who committed their time to the regional solid waste management committee — including community groups, local politicians, First Nations, local businesses, environment groups, industry professionals — plus the region-wide public consultation process that happened in the spring of 2012. In the CS-SWMP approval letter, the MoE places three conditions on the plan: 1. The Comox Valley waste management centre landfill lateral expan-

sion may proceed in compliance with an operational certificate issued by a director. 2. The CS-SWMP proposes a feasibility assessment and conceptual design before possible future lateral expansion of the Campbell River waste management landfill and continued exploration and consideration of waste-to-energy technologies and costs before possible future inclusion in the plan. Any such amendments must first be submitted and approved by the MoE before these or other possible future waste management options be authorized to proceed. 3. That the “Comox Strathcona waste management 2012 solid waste management plan” replace the previous CVRD SWMP. “The CSWM board wants to acknowledge and thank the public for participating with their feedback on the solid waste management plan,” said Edwin Grieve, chair of the Comox Strathcona waste management board. “The input that was received was valuable in helping us to make decisions about the management of our region’s waste and ultimately led to the endorsement of the plan by the Ministry.” For a copy of the updated solid waste management plan and to review the approval letter from the MoE, visit www.cswm.ca/plan.

Grizzly shot near Beaver Cove Road

A lone dog collar was all that remained of a Rottweiler that was killed near a fish farm hatchery located off Beaver Cove Road on Sunday. Conservation officers shot and killed the culprit, a 500-pound grizzly bear they believe swam over to the island to seek out new territory. Prior to killing the bear, which conservation officers believed was displaying desensitized behavior — having broken into some properties and causing damage — they

consulted with a biologist from the Ministry of Environment. The bear had been successfully trapped and was put down on Monday morning. Steve Petrovcic, an officer with the BC Conservation Service said that they believe there might be another grizzly bear on the North Island right now. While Vancouver Island is black bear country, there have been a few cases of buoyant grizzlies spotted on northern Vancouver Island, presumably after swimming over from

the mainland. In 2006 a grizzly bear was shot and killed in Sayward. A threeyear-old male grizzly, weighing about 350 pounds was shot dead by Fred Bellerby who feared for his granddaughter’s safety. She was playing outside at the time, when the large carnivore approached and tried to get through a fence around his house, about 15 metres away. That grizzly was believed to have swum over from one of the neighbouring islands. Prior to that only one other

grizzly bear in the past three years was also known to have reached Vancouver Island by water. It was also shot and killed. An earlier reported killing of a grizzly within the past decade, in the Campbell River area, has not been authenticated. Known as highly intelligent animals, there are about 17,000 grizzly bears and 160,000 black bears in B.C. There are an estimated 10,000 black bears on Vancouver Island but no grizzly bears.

Dog owners warned about leaving them in vehicles By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Dog tradedies in overheated cars are occurring with amazing frequency despite numerous public awareness campaigns. The BC SPCA reports that over 500 complaints of dogs being left in cars in hot weather are received every year. With the Campbell River SPCA not currently providing animal protection services, some local dog lovers are not sure who to call if they see a dog suffering in a carturned oven. Coastal Animal Control Services took over animal control and bylaw enforcement for Campbell River on April 1 but for cases of overheated dogs in cars, the Campbell River public can call CAC at 1-888-7541397 to report this and an officer will attend. In cases where the animal is in urgent distress, people can also call the non-emergency line of the RCMP. “With hot dog calls, as Peace Officers, we will authorize a tow company to do a lock out on the vehicle and we will transport the dog to a vet clinic for immediate treatment,” said Trevor Hughes of Coastal Animal Control. “In extreme cases, we will have the RCMP break the window. Once the dog has been stabilized and has recovered, it will be taken to the pound.” Hughes said they don’t charge an impound on dogs taken from hot cars as there is no provision in the bylaw to do so. “We would make sure the dog is licenced upon release,” he said. Many dogs die from being left

in hot cars, with even the least likely people not realizing how lethal a hot car can be. That was demonstrated by the much publicized recent deaths of two British police dogs left all day in a hot vehicle and a police dog left in a patrol car for 15 minutes in the Texas heat last summer.” The temperature inside a car and outside is staggeringly different. Cars can become ovens with tempertures soaring to 49C within six to 10 minutes. Even with the windows open it can take just 10 minutes for dogs to suffer from heatstroke and to die an agonizing death. The BC SPCA says to never leave a dog unattended in a car

even with the windows down and water available. They instruct dog owners to either leave them at home or take them out of the car and leave them in a secure cool and shaded place with access to cool water. Never let your dog take part in unnecessary exertion or stand in exposed sunlight for any length of time. Never pass by a dog if you see one suffering inside a car. Minutes count. Dogs and cats cool themselves by panting and by releasing heat through their

A grandmother’s hope for her granddaughter By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

As a grandmother, Lois Jarvis would love nothing more than to sit down with her granddaughter Lauren and enjoy some milk and cookies, bake her a birthday cake, take her out for pizza, or go on a family picnic. But she can’t. Her granddaughter Lauren Paulsen, 19, is deathly allergic to food. For the honour student, talented artist with a sunny disposition and infectious smile, life has been precarious, surgery and treatment have become as routine as the feeding tube that keeps her alive. For Jarvis, who is a powerful and outspoken advocate for an organization in Campbell River called ‘Citizens for Quality Health Care’, she can only hope her granddaughter gets exactly that. At the age of eight Lauren was diagnosed with rare auto-immune disease, Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis (EGE). “Lauren is one of two kids in BC with this illness,” said Jarvis. “All kids with these rare diseases don’t get the help or funding that other kids do with illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, or heart disease. Drug companies don’t want to invest in finding treatments for orphan diseases because they don’t get the promise of a big profit from them.” As long as Lauren can remember, she suffered from stomach aches.

“All our bodies have white blood cells called ‘eosinophils’ which are there to protect the digestive tract from foreign invaders,” said Jarvis. “In her case, the eosinophils release

a substance that is supposed to attack the invader but in the process, when she eats food, it recognizes food. It is extremely painful.” EGE has not only affected Lauren profoundly but all her family as well. They cannot live like other families do. Most socialization for people Lauren’s age all centres around food. Their opportunities for holidays and travel are very restricted. Jarvis said that Lauren was sick all the time and missed a great deal of school. “She gradually had no friends left as they all drifted away and she became isolated due to her illness,” said Jarvis. “During the night when she was sleeping Lauren was fed a special hypo-allergenic formula through a Nasogastric Feeding nose tube to her stomach. She was sustained for three months on strictly the formula, and then introduced to plain white rice. Much later, she was able to add potatoes to her diet while on the formula. It was very difficult for the rest of us to eat a meal while she sat with a plain solitary potato on her plate.” She was tethered to an I.V. pole for hours while feeding. Lauren was teased by children and stared at by both children and adults due to the N.G. tube. She did her best to ignore all of that, even being called “snotty nose” along with other names at school. Lauren was very weak and tired easily, unable to walk through a store. She became very depressed

and discouraged in trying to cope with her illness. Lauren was trying to cope in a social environment watching everyone enjoy eating while she was unable to participate. Lauren wrote a very moving story on her blog entitled “Sick for awhile”, dated March 10, 2013. It is a story on what it is like to be her. “For years I have been working at the level of ‘barely-functional.’ To try and explain this, I am going to use the Spoon Theory. In a sense, everyone has spoons, each one representing the energy and ability to do something in a day. Getting dressed uses up a spoon. Continued on page 13.

The only refuge is in humility, an utterly convinced, completely self-effacing humility before the complexity of truth and the even greater complexity of human nature, in the solemn certainty that complete impartiality and complete honesty are beyond the power of man, no matter how he may strain for them. In this there is a measure of help towards the proper balance of head and heart and law that yields a fair decision. - Roderick Haig-Brown

Our View Tagging taggers a good idea

It is probably one of the most noticeable crimes in the city. Over the course of a year it causes businesses, government and private citizens thousands of dollars. It’s tagging. That’s the imbecilic practice of spray painting sides of buildings, cars, mailboxes — whatever happens to catch their fancy. And it is time to put a stop to it. Increasing the punishment for those caught doing the vandalism might help. But there has to be a better way. Would it be an imposition on business to somehow track and record sales of the paint? We’re not saying the vendor has to be a mind reader to figure out if the person they are selling the stuff to is going to re-paint something around the home or desecrate buildings and private property. But it would be possible to take an educated guess at the customer’s intention. This type of local control would work to some degree, but the possibility of imported goods from other communities or even the internet would not make it a sure thing. The damage these idiots cause ranges from replacing signs, repainting whole buildings and repainting cars. If you want a real idea of how sick this practice is, take a look at the back wall of the iconic Willow Point Hall. So if punishment is to be part of prevention perhaps we come up with something that suits the crime. How about once the perpetrators are caught they are forded to clean up or re-paint at their own cost? And then the added bonus would be to give some of our local tattoo artists in town tagging opportunities on the forehead of the criminal. Something like “I Love Tagging” or, even more appropriate, “I Am An Idiot.” Previous poll: Do you think the city will eventually want to encroach on the Beaver Lodge Lands again? 58% said yes. New poll: Should more be done to crack down on taggers? Vote at www.courierislander.com

From our readers

Thank you CRCF The management and staff at Forde House in Willow Point would like to thank Campbell River Community Foundation for their generous donation towards our new gardening program. Earlier this spring Marine Harvest gave us a dozen fish totes which we needed to make our new raised garden beds. We installed these new beds with a lot of hard work from our gardener, Vince Wood. The beds are the perfect height for our residents who have mobility issues. They can now sit on their walkers or in their scooters and garden to their hearts content. The gardens here at Willow Point Supportive Living have become quite a social meeting place not only for our residents but also for the community. Many stroll the grounds and enjoy seeing what-

ever is in bloom at the time. Over the past few years we have won two garden awards of which the residents are quite proud and so they should be, as they helped with a number of the tasks. The contribution from Campbell River Community Foundation will go towards installing paths around the new beds. These are being built with the help of several volunteers from the Storey Creek Golf Course. Our gardeners are eagerly looking forward to the flowers and vegetables they will be able to grow. Many thanks to all those who have helped to make our new gardens a reality. What a wonderful community we live in. The Residents of Forde House

It’s a fine line that’s called Chupidity

The great comedian George Carlin once said something that scared the hell out of me. “The average I.Q. is 100,” said George. “This means that half of all humanity is stupider than that.” But how can that be? We live in an age when we have an abundance of universities and libraries, educators and scholars, the Internet, TED talks…. A time when people can read and consult and collaborate and… access wisdom more than ever before, and yet… Read the news. 21 INJURED BY WALKING ON HOT COALS blares one headline. Apparently, nearly two dozen mature adults attending a motivational seminar in San Jose, California were treated by firefighters for second and third-degree burns which they received after being encouraged to walk barefoot on white-hot coals by self-help guru Tony Robbins. Burned from walking barefoot on glowing coals heated up to 1,100 degrees C. Who could possibly have foreseen?

It seems those sky-high salaries the players command when they’re on the ice are killing the owners financially. So it’s come to this: based on the team’s projections, the only way for the Phoenix Coyotes to make money is if they never play. Nice deke, Mister B!

our local sponsors...Swicked Cycles, Boston Pizza, Healthyway, Associated Tire & Auto and Coastal EyeCare. Thank you to all our participants, sponsors and supporters for seeing the need for community events and supporting us in our quest to enhance Campbell River and grow our healthy community! We love doing it and hope to see you out again next year! Your local Muddy Team, Chris Flood, Chenoa and James There have been so many “thorns” to drivers lately, and how pedestrians really become targets. A cross walk at Dogwood and Merecroft is more than dangerous. DO NOT assume because you have a “Walk” sign you are safe. Cars turn right on to Dogwood without even looking to see if someone is in the crosswalk; then there are those who turn left off Merecroft on to Dogwood and being in the crosswalk means absolutely nothing. Don’t assume these drivers are going to stop for you, they aren’t! A Very Cautious Walker

Life Children’s Centre sorted and labeled numerous totes of supplies and toys. The library was also sorted and purged under the direction of Librarian Lucy.

Thank you Paul and Rob from Telus, CLCC staff Melanie, Wendy, Monica, Brenda, Gina, Tanya, Lucy, Meg &Teresa who went above and beyond the call of duty to make the day-to-day operation run as smoothly as those tidy totes glide on the newly built organizational system.

Blessings on each of you. Shelley Gereluk on behalf of Christian Life Children’s Centre Board of Directors

Lauren in her grad dress. Continued from page 9. Brushing your teeth uses up a spoon. In all these little things, we don’t really take into consideration the amount of energy we are using to accomplish them. The reason people don’t think about it is because they have enough spoons that they don’t have to worry about running out. However, I have a very limited numb er of spoons. And I mean, extremely limited. I have to be careful about what to use my spoons on, or I will run out and won’t be able to function for several days.” At her “barely functioning level, Lauren is only able to do the necessities. “What I mean by this is that when I am attending college, it uses up a lot of my spoons going every day, so I cannot go out and do other things that would be more fun. If I did, I wouldn’t be able to go to college. So I have to use my spoons wisely. It can get pretty depressing so sometimes I cry myself to sleep. And yes, I tend to think of ways to end my life to end the pain and misery, but I would never do it because I know how much it would hurt the people that care about me.” This year, Lauren had withdraw from college due to her health declining and at one point she almost lost her battle. What does Grandma Lois do to prepare for a visit from her granddaughter? “We put all the dishes, pots, pans, cutlery and cutlery trays in the house and camper van through the sani cycle in the dishwasher,” said Jarvis. “We use the camper van daily on outings so we can have a fridge and stove to cook food for them. We wash drawers to ensure there are no residual crumbs. We clean and sanitize all counters well and then shop at a specialty health food store. We change our cooking and eating habits to ensure there is no cross-contamination of food. We have switched household products to the products they use at their home. We purchased some cookware to be used exclusively for Lauren’s food. There is lots of extra hand washing too.” And who would have thought a little blessing would come their way from the local farmers’ market in Campbell River? “It was very exciting to discover more food to add to her diet from the Campbell River Farmers’ Market,” said Jarvis. “Larry and Angelina of Watrin Farms (Comox) have wonderful pure products that Lauren can eat. Angelina’s popsicles made from apple juice with mango or strawberry juice are a rare treat so we purchase anywhere from 20 to 50 at once. Island Bison is another discovery which has added to her diet. We also make trips

The Scrap is on for the CRHF

Let the challenge begin… The Campbell River Hospital Foundation has partnered with the Courier-Islander, ABC Recycling and the Eagle 97.3 FM to bring Campbell River the second annual Scrap Metal Challenge. It is now underway and the competitors are: Finning Canada, Shaw, A.J. Forsyth (a division of Russel Metals), McGrath Contracting, City of Campbell River and Fountain Tire. This event is geared towards raising money for the Campbell River Hospital Foundation through the collection of scrap metal. The company that donates the most scrap will win the coveted Scrap Metal Cup (donated by McTavish Welding). Companies can still take part by donating their scrap metal proceeds for the month of June. In addition, there are two ways the public can participate; they can either take their scrap to the community bin at the Dogwood Operation Yard at 385 S. Dogwood St. or they can take it directly to ABC Recycling at 4318 Terminal Place. Funds raised from this year’s event will be allocated towards an Argon Laser System for the Ophthalmology Department.

Camp Day helps kids get to ‘sleep next to a tree’

George Carlin said that some (campgrounds) have long waiting lists for camping reservations. “When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.” Thanks to loyal Tim Hortons guests and generous restaurant owners, kids between the ages of nine and 12 will not have to wait to go to camp. Camp Day, at the two Tim Hortons restaurants, took place on Wednesday and many customers were on hand to be served by the Campbell River Fire Department, St. John’s Ambulance personnel, paramedics with the BC Ambulance Service and Mayor Walter Jakeway with members of council. Every time a guest bought a coffee at Tim Hortons, every cent of their purchase went to the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation. This year Campbell River kids will attend a 10-day wilderness adventure camp at the Tim Hortons Ranch in Kananaskis, Alberta. The Tim Hortons Children’s Ranch, which opened in 1991, is nestled on 150 acres in beautiful Kananaskis Country, Alberta.

Participants at “the Ranch” have the unique experience of living in the Canadian Rockies, and enjoying activities such as horseback riding, rock climbing and white water rafting as well as other traditional camp activities. Tim Hortons Children’s Ranch hosts residential campers throughout the summer months. Schools, youth groups and other community organizations that meet the Foundation’s selection criteria can also benefit from year-round programming. Tim Hortons will help send more than 16,000 kids, who could otherwise not afford it, on the camping adventure of a lifetime. All children who attend one of the Foundation’s six camps in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and the state of Kentucky. Tim Hortons restaurant owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to select children. Last year Tim Hortons Camp Day raised a record $11 million, which helped to send more than 15,000 deserving kids from economically disadvantaged homes on a once-in alifetime camping adventure.

Beach clean up anyone?

City Councillor Larry Samson mans the drive through at Tim Hortons downtown while Jennifer Kane, supervisor, keeps an eye on him. Every time a guest bought a coffee at Tim Hortons on Wednesday’s “Camp Day”, every cent of their purchase went to the Tim Hortons Children’s Foundation.

The Young Professionals of Campbell River (YPCR) is excited for the second annual Oceans Day Beach Clean Up Saturday, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Ken Forde Park and everyone is invited. With over 50 people attending last year, the YPCR is hoping for another great turnout this year. “With the Oceans Day festival happening at the Maritime Heritage Centre a beach clean-up is a great way to support the message about the importance of our oceans and how lucky we are to be steps away from the ocean here in Campbell River. It’s also a great excuse to get outside and enjoy the sunny weather,” said Sara Crowhurst, owner of the Travel Place, YPCR Member and Event Committee Member. Community involvement is one of the YPCR’s four pillars and last year the Oceans Day clean up saw the community collect 75 kg of garbage from local beaches. “It’s a low key and fun event where we take pictures of all attendees as they arrive and when they return with their bags full of garbage recognizing the difference they made,” said Maria Woodward, BMO Financial Services Manager, YPCR Member and Event Committee Member. YPCR will provide gloves, bags and maps to anyone who participates along with a table of delicious homemade goodies!

Bantam Ravens top Warriors, lose to Tigers

The Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam A Ravens travelled south Saturday, May 25, to play the Peninsula Warriors. The travel proved to be the least of the Ravens concerns as their flight south was uneventful. They jumped out to an early lead as Zach Lontayao scored followed by a Quin Nelson tally to take a 2-0 lead. The Warriors got one past Ravens goalie Will McLean but Liam Rivett responded in the best possible way as he buried the ball in the back of the net after receiving a nice pass from Bryce Turko. Peninsula closed the gap to 3-2 at the end of the first period. Rivett got things back on track with his second goal of the game. Ian Hall got in on the action as he scored, assisted by Lontayao. The second period ended 5-2 for the Ravens. In the third, Nolan Fair put the biscuit in the basket, assisted by Nelson. Peninsula scored to make it 6-3 but Turko added one more for the Ravens. The Ravens had two players in the penalty box for the last minute

of the game but Peninsula wasn’t able to take advantage of it; final score 7-3 for the Ravens. On Sunday, the Ravens hosted Saanich Tigers A1 team. Both teams were missing a few key players; the Ravens had two players out due to game misconducts from the prior game plus one on the sick list while the Tigers were missing a player due to Team BC Basketball obligations. The Tigers player is also on Team BC Lacrosse so he’s at least a twosport threat. Making the most of an unfortunate situation, the players who did dress gave it everything they had. Matthew Leard opened the scoring as he took a pass from Lukas Lund while cutting through the heart of the house and wired it stick side. The Tigers came right back as they executed a two-on-one to perfection to tie the score at 1-1. Saanich took the lead after they had sustained pressure in the Ravens zone. This was going to become a frequent occurrence in this game as McLean made back-toback-stops but couldn’t stop them

low corner making it 6-2. McLean grabbed a rebound and sent a long bomb pass to Aidan Probyn. Probyn caught the ball in stride, took it in on goal and wired it waist high just before the buzzer went for the end of the second period, 6-3 for the Tigers.

Unfortunately that turned out to be the final goal for the Ravens while the Tigers continued to run their motion offence and win one-on-one battles. They ultimately put a few more in the back of the net to make the final score 11-3 for the Tigers. McLean faced a total of 85 shots on goal in this game, stopping 74 of them. As Ravens head coach Todd Fair observed, “Saanich showed us what can happen when players commit whole-heartedly to the motion offence. They were very well-coached and maintained their discipline. They ran the floor and at times passed over top of our forecheck relatively easily. We are trying to instill in our players that they have to play closer to their check than in the past. “I’m proud of the way that we kept working to the final buzzer. Some of our players are hanging their heads, taking responsibility for the team’s loss. At the end of the game, if they can honestly say that they did the best they could for the entire game, that’s all that matters. “We are now 3-1 in terms of games played in the A division. If anyone told us at the start of the season that we’d be at the point and still improving, we would take that in a heartbeat.”

Local gym making big impact in Fitness World By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor West Coast Muscle & Fitness (WCM) is putting its competitive stamp on the fitness world and in the process making Campbell River front and centre on the Canadian competitive fitness map. Recently three competitors from WCM competed at the Western Canadian Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships in Kelowna. Ryan Bell won a Western Canadian title in the open men’s lightweight division, while Nicole Janveaux captured the women’s bodybuilding championship. The third WCM competitor, Kaylee Mascia, placed sixth in women’s bikini. For the WCM trio, it took hundreds of hours in the gym to get ready for a competition. “This sport requires a huge amount of drive and dedication,” said Janveaux. “I dieted for over 20 weeks for this competition, as well as spending numerous hours a day in the gym and many sacrifices. This was my first show and will be moving on to Nationals (world qualifier) next spring, with the goal being to get to the worlds.” West Coast Muscle has been under new ownership and guidance of Jeff Messinger and Sarah MacDonald, since last September. It is regarded as one of the only remaining hardcore gyms in Campbell River. MacDonald recently placed third in Canada for Figure and is hungry to compete again in August at another national event in Vancouver. Messinger and Bell are off to Vancouver June 22, to compete in the BC Provincial Bodybuilding Championships in Vancouver. “Here at WCM we are all about making every rep count and focusing on proper training technique to achieve maximum results,” said Messinger. “WCM will Photos submitted be running bootcamps this summer as well as specializing Left, Nicole Janveaux and right, in personal training and diet.” Ryan Bell.

Ravens rule!

The Subway Peewee B Ravens had two impressive wins this weekend to increase their record in the Vancouver Island Lacrosse Association standings to 9-2. The Ravens hosted Port Alberni on Saturday and dominated play to end with a 6-1 victory. Sunday the team made the journey to Peninsula for the second game of the weekend. The team got off to a quick start scoring three goals. In the second the Ravens ran into some penalty trouble. Strong defensive play and an offensive surge in the third led to a 9-2 victory for the Ravens. Come out and watch the Ravens next home game Sunday, at 1:30 p.m. at Strathcona Gardens.

GOLF CLASSIC DINNER & AUCTION In SATURDAY support of Campbell River Chapter www.crcf.ca JUNE 22nd, 2013 With Thanks To PLATINUM SPONSOR

“Building A Better Future For Those With CF” Public Relations Director Amanda Raleigh of Seymour Pacific Developments Ltd., with husband Dustin, (2nd from left), host Rod, and NHLers Ryan NugentHopkins (far left) and Chad LaRose (far right). Photo Courtesy of Erin Wallis Photography

When Rod Brind’Amour returned home with the Stanley Cup in 2006, it sparked an outpouring of community pride and an elevated interest in Rod’s involvement with fighting Cystic Fibrosis (CF). For the Mailman family, that spark quickly flamed into action and Seymour Pacific Developments Ltd. made a substantial monetary contribution to Cystic Fibrosis Canada (CFC) that year. They also paid tribute to Rod by dedicating a street after him in their local Ocean Grove subdivision, ‘Rod Brind’Amour Drive’. Several years ago, the company stepped up to the Gold Sponsorship level and the year after to the highest Platinum level. Their support of the CF cause is amazing. Born and raised in Campbell River himself, company founder and Chairman Kris Mailman and wife Cheryl share a strong belief that they have raised their 2 children in one of the best places on earth. Best known for their success in land development and construction of residential and multi-family housing, they are also revered for their philanthropist ways, donating time and money to many local charities including the CR Community Foundation, CR Salmon Foundation, CR SPCA and others. In 2011, the Mailmans and Seymour Pacific dedicated the 'Ed and Mary Mailman Lifeskills House' built at Timberline School, to allow SD72 to assist special needs students become independent. The Canadian headquarters of Seymour Pacific Developments and Broadstreet Properties is currently under construction in the heart of the city. Daughter Amanda Raleigh is the firm’s Public Relations Director and has known Kim Black’s family for years, since they were neighbours as teenagers. Amanda and Kim both attended Danette’s Dance Studio back then, which did several fund raisers for CF. Amanda got a real taste for what it was like for Kim to live with CF and wanted to help. Amanda and her children still remember meeting Rod for the first time in 2009 and her family looks forward to helping Rod and Kim promote the CF cause in Campbell River each year. Amanda is pleased that Seymour Pacific Developments is able to give back to the community and equally proud of the work the company does in building value from start to finish with quality, cost-effective single and multi-family dwellings across western Canada. Amanda would like to thank all those involved with the Rod Brind’Amour CF event each year for their time, effort and donations to make it an annual success.

Campbell River’s world class mountain biking

I think most of us know what an amazing place we live when it comes to outdoor activities and healthy living. Well I recently attended the Mountain Biking BC tourism symposium. This was a workshop based around creating or increasing mounJames Durand tain bike tourism in British Columbia. There are many great areas around our province, but the more people I talked to and the more communities I become familiar with. I was reminded time and time again why I chose to live and ride in Campbell River. We have it all here. It doesn’t matter what discipline of mountain biking you love, or what level you ride at, Campbell River offers something for everyone. We have the Beaver Lodge Lands with so many beginner trails, The Pump House and Snowden Forest with over 100 km of world class intermediate and advanced trails, or more extreme riding out at Menzies Mountain. The riding, and community, have attracted riders from all over BC and the world through exposure from things like the Ride Guide television show, the BC Bike Race that comes through Campbell River each July, and general word of mouth from riders bragging about their time here. We are also lucky enough to have strong trail builders in town, a forestry industry that understands the benefits of recreation and a riding community that is friendly and open. What we have is unique in many ways and the potential to be a mountain bike destination is huge, and that benefits our entire community. I’m James Durand and I’m goin’ ridin’…right in my back yard!

Fragrant Roses

For many of us, fragrant is a must for roses. We can’t stop ourselves from sticking our noses into a rose, closing our eyes, as we innately know by cutting off our sense of sight only serves to enhance our sense of smell. When we are rewarded with a fragrance we breathe it in deep and nod as if confirming to ourselves all is the way it should be. It is then that we usually smile and want to share our discovery. Stop and smell the roses… perhaps this little old saying is more fitting in our busy world than ever. When you are shopping for roses the fragrance can be classified many ways and with many words; slight, moderate, mild, medium, gentle, etc. However if fragrance is really important to you, you need to look for descriptions such as strong, heady, intense and know that moderate, for you, will just not cut it. Here are a few of our favourite very fragrant roses: Julia Child - Floribunda – Julia Child selected this rose herself and it is fitting that its blooms are a delicious butter-yellow. The strongly fragrant flowers continue the “foodie” theme being scented licorice candy and spice. Super glossy green leaves with great disease resistance make Julia Child a wonderful floribunda rose. Ch-Ching - Grandiflora –Loads of lemon yellow flowers with strong sweet spice and fruit fragrance make this vigorous and bushy grandiflora rose a delight. Francis Meilland - Hybrid Tea – Don’t let the delicate pink colour fool you… this rose shows the promise of strong disease resistance and strong fragrance. Brand new for 2013 and named to honour the 100th birthday of the famous rose breeder, Francis Meilland, the breeder behind the historic Peace rose. Francis Meilland hybrid tea rose has been chosen as the winner of the 2013 AARS (All American Rose Selection) and it is the first hybrid tea rose to win under no-spray

conditions. The plant is tall with large double, classically formed flowers of beautiful shell pink. White Licorice - Floribunda – Strong licorice and lemon blossom fragrance compliments delicately shaded cream flowers with lemon hearts. To keep things interesting warmer temperatures create whiter blooms while cooler temperatures lead to more yellow tones. Large classically formed roses sit atop the vigorous rose bush. Munstead Wood - David Austin – Large blooms of rich, deep, crimson carry the classic David Austin attributes of cupped shape blooms and a strong old rose fragrance. This is a wonderful rose named after the personal garden of the famous English gardener and writer, Gerturde Jekyll (1843-1932). Wollerton Old Hall - David AustinWollerton Old Hall has a rich strong myrrh scent and is considered one of the most fragrant of all David Austin roses (and that is saying something!). The delicate colour is creamy buff with hits of peachy-pink within the cup shaped blooms. Wollerton Old Hall can be grown either as a shrub or a climber of up to eight foot. Harlow Carr - David Austin– Masses of medium sized pure rose pink flowers are beautifully shaped and scented with a strong old rose fragrance. Harlow Carr is a very lovely shaped shrub with excellent winter hardiness. Hansa - Rugosa – Tough as nails, impervious to black spot with a rich heady fragrance; Hansa has got to be the easiest rose to grow. Hansa is grown on its own roots and is very winter hardy too. The flowers are loose carnation shaped, the colour where dark pink meets rosy-purple and the fragrance is strong spicy clove. Whichever rose takes your fancy be sure to plant fragrant roses near where you can sit and Photo submitted enjoy their beautiful scent. Enjoy!

PLANNING FOR LIFE CHANGES So you’re thinking about downsizing and moving

Are you getting tired of cutting the grass and shoveling snow? Are you uncomfortable lugging laundry baskets and groceries up and down stairs? Perhaps the thought of moving sounds good, but the thought of selling your home and moving to a smaller place overwhelms you. If so, you are not alone! Anne Delaney Making the decision to move to a smaller place is extremely difficult for many older adults. If you’ve lived in your home for several decades, then leaving it may feel like an enormous loss. If your children have moved on, it may feel like your house is all you have left. You may think that your house keeps you connected to those happy memories of years past. But none of that matters if your house is no longer safe for you. It is estimated that it takes a minimum of 80 hours to completely sort and pack an average home. This is an enormous task. It will be easier if you break the tasks of downsizing into small segments, which may begin with 15 minute sessions a couple of times throughout the day. The key is to take small steps, one drawer at a time, one box at a time. Share with your family and friends cherished items and heirlooms and take Photo submitted comfort in knowing that these possessions will be appreciated.

Books for Babes program will help young moms

Photo submitted

Getting behind the Books for Babes program are from left to right, Aleisha Thomas-Lebid, Dianne Borton, Cheryl Lagos, Karen Miller, Niky Burnett, Braden Elke and Cheryl Jordan.

Campbell River Literacy Now wants all new parents to know that reading begins at birth. It is never too early to begin reading to your baby. Reading early and often will give your child the best chance for learning to read when they enter school, they say and research is clear that the more books a child is exposed to the easier time they will have with written words. In order to share this information Literacy Now has partnered with several community groups to prepare 400 Books for Babies bags to be distributed by Public Health Nurses. This wonderful bag is filled with a great children’s board book, a CD by Charlotte Diamond to teach babies songs, a DVD that focuses on reading, math, and speaking skills and lots of helpful information. Working closely with Success by Six, Literacy Now is working to improve the literacy of young children in order to make them better prepared for entering Kindergarten. Information from UBC research indicates one in three Campbell River children enter the school system not prepared for learning. This project is made possible with support from several community groups and organizations. Literacy Now would like to thank, Hug Bug Music, Coho Books, Success By Six, Altrusa Campbell River, School District 72, Daybreak Rotary, Coastal Eye Care Centres and Coastal Community Credit Union. Funds raised at the Sunset Cinema sponsored by Coastal Community Credit Union were donated through Success by Six to Books for Babies. Make sure you don’t miss out on this great gift. If you are a new mom and have been missed, please contact the Public Health Unit and ask for your Books for Babies bag.

Urban Dance performing at Tidemark

This is weekend marks the end of a fantastic season of dance for Urban Dance Connection. Join the celebration at the Tidemark Theatre June 8 and 9. The year end recital “Through the Kaleidoscope” will showcase the UDC Performance and Competitive teams as well as the dancers from the recreational and preschool programs. This has been a season full of success and fun for the UDC dancers. The competitive dances season kicked off with the North Island Festival of the Performing Arts back in February. This competition awarded the teams with two “Most Entertaining” awards. Garnet Nicolle received this award for her Ballet Solo and Michelle Devra for her Hip Hop Solo. Teegan Stoudt was awarded the “Most Promising Ballerina Award” and Melinda Coetzee was chosen as a Provincial Representative for Ballet. Melinda spent this past week at the BC Performing Arts Festival in Chilliwack. These awards were the icing on the cake after taking the stage for over 80 successful performances at the Festival.

Public invited to unveiling of fascinating art installation

Everyone is invited to attend the unveiling of a largescale art installation by renowned Ontario artist Amanda McCavour Thursday, June 13 at 7:20 p.m. If you walk through the lobby of the Centennial Building from June 10 to June 13 you’ll notice the exhibition space at the Campbell River Art Gallery is curtained off so the public can’t peek as McCavour busily works to transform the Main and Discovery galleries into a wonderland of embroidery. McCavour creates everything from household rooms to verdant gardens from embroidery that is unlike anything you’ve seen before. She creates her work by sewing into fabric that dissolves in water, leaving only stitched lines behind. This results in delicate furniture, flowers, leaves, snowflakes and other shapes that have a ghostly quality. McCavour, who will present an illustrated lecture at the June 13 opening, has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from York University and has completed artist residences at numerous studios and institutes. Her embroidered installations seem ghostly and lace like, as they are suspended in mid-air. She presents everything from rooms in her childhood home to imagined floral displays. Thread – a seemingly fragile material – becomes an incredibly strong medium. Staff and volunteers at the Campbell River Art Gallery and exhibition sponsor, Denise Mitchell Interiors, look forward to welcoming the public to meet McCavour and hear her speak. Make sure to mark your calendars for Thursday, June 13 at 7:20 p.m. so you’ll be there when the curtain is pulled aside and the stunning results of McCavour’s days of work are unveiled. The Campbell River Art Gallery is open Monday to Saturday from 10 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, please contact the Gallery at 250-287-2261 or by email at contact@crartgallery.ca.

Motorists are advised that Traffic control will be in place on Hwy 19A from Pinecrest to Merecroft. Please follow directions on signs and watch for flaggers. Seawalk users will be detoured around the construction activities as well. Thank you for your patience.
