New $23 million BC Hydro offices in Campbell River precedent setting By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander Construction has started on new $23 million BC Hydro offices in Campbell River, the first such project by the corporation on Indian reserve land in the province. The Courier-Islander first broke a story earlier this month on BC Hydro’s office moves stemming from the upcoming John Hart Generating Station relocation project and a move from the Evergreen Office to the We Wai Kai lands at Quinsam Crossing. This week BC Hydro provided more information on the Quinsam Crossing development. This project will create 60 jobs over a 16 month period and is over and above the 400 jobs and major economic benefits that will come from the John Hart relocation project. The new 28,000 square foot building boasts a sustainable building design, something that wasn’t evident at the Evergreen location. BC Hydro’s Stephen Watson said they undertook two comprehensive studies of the 40-year old Evergreen Road building and came up with significant issues. Just some of the concerns included not being seismically sound because of soil liquefaction, there is no fire suppression system, the air quality in the vehicle bays is not sufficient, and the building is now too small from operational growth over the last few decades. A number of options were considered with the best one being the move to a new location, he added. Bad news in a way for BC Hydro, but good news for the local economy.

Top, artist’s conception of the new BC Hydro building in Campbell River and below, the layout of the 7.8 acre site. “It’s a $23 million project that will open in early 2015,” said Watson. “Over the 16 month construction period it will sustain about 60

jobs. Add that to the approximately 400 jobs for the John Hart project that will start this year and we are certainly fostering economic

development. Even those jobs to be created this summer for the construction upgrades at Campbell River Common to allow for the temporary office space for our John Hart office staff starting this fall, it all adds up. “The Quinsam Crossing site is ideal for the office and light industrial land use, is clean from an environmental perspective, and it provides easy access to the highway for crews needing to respond to outages and emergencies. It will also be a post-disaster field operations centre for BC Hydro that will remain functional following a seismic event.” We Wai Kai Nation Chief Ralph Dick said the process has been a long and precedent setting one. “We have been in discussions with BC Hydro on this project for a long, long time,” said Dick. “We are very pleased to see the work that’s started on the 7.8-acre lot. It’s the beginning of a long-term business relationship with BC Hydro. It’s also the first time in the province that a BC Hydro building has been located onto Indian Reserve lands. This is precedence setting and we’re proud to be part of it.” Omicron, a Vancouver-based construction company, was awarded the contract for the construction of the building along with a few other BC Hydro buildings around the province. Omicron is in the process of awarding subcontractor work, with some already in place, with further work to be awarded in the near future. Omicron and BC Hydro recently met with the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce. Continued on page 2.

control the emissions of the contractors if we at the end of the day have to pay for the credit?” she asked. “I don’t think we have an easy answer for that question,” said General Manager of Operations Ron Neufeld. “A lot of our contracting services that we rely on are big producers in terms of emissions based on the nature of their work. So the challenge for the city is to develop scopes of work that can reduce their impact as much as possible.” Neufeld said he didn’t have an exact number on the new carbon offset costs, but estimated it to be from $35,000 to $40,000. ncameron@courierislander.com

New rules from the province on carbon credits could cost Campbell River and other BC cities thousands of dollars Under the new rules the city is now also responsible for the carbon emissions of contractors it hires, something city councillor Claire Moglove said will impact the city budget. In last couple of years the carbon credit payment for the city has risen by about 15 per cent to $37,000 last year. “How do we as the city somehow try to

Highest pedestrian suspension bridge in Canada gets the last needed monies and the green light By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander Campbell River’s Elk Falls Suspension Bridge project over the Elks Falls Canyon can start being constructed after receiving $325,000 from the Island Coastal Economic Trust Wednesday. The 90 metre suspension bridge will be 72 metres above the bottom of Elk Falls Canyon, making it the highest pedestrian only suspension bridge in Canada. The project will also feature an accessible viewing platform and access trail, creating new tourism opportunities for individuals with mobility challenges and families with strollers. And although a query from the Courier-Islander to the Ministry of Environment remains unanswered, sources say ministerial approval — the last roadblock in the process — has been granted but not announced. The overall project will also include an improved access road, expanded parking designed to accommodate tour buses and public washroom facilities, which will be constructed by BC Hydro in cooperation with BC Parks. The new and unique status of being the highest suspension bridge in Canada will help transform this Artist’s conception of the Elk Falls Suspension Bridge existing natural asset into a worldto be built in Campbell River. class visitor experience, bringing significant media attention and an provincial funding dollars to work with fundincreased profile to the entire region.

Trio derails, relents on $15 million bylaws for infrastructure bucks

#

SSALES ALES EVENT

Campbell River city council went behind closed doors Tuesday night after three new members of council jettisoned two bylaws to borrow up to $15 million to replace and repair aging water and sewer infrastructure. But a little over a half an hour later they returned to council chambers and eventually passed the bylaws. The initial vote was so concerning to City Manager Andy Laidlaw that he called for an immediate closed door recess so that city staff could explain the ramifications of the vote, despite the fact that the regular in-camera session was only minutes away. Laidlaw’s main concern was outlined in the options presented to council prior to the vote which said that “canceling plans to proceed with these infrastructure upgrades would jeopardize the water and sewer systems by relying on infrastructure well past its useful life.” Mayor Walter Jakeway said the initial vote was “a good shot across the bow” and that the message he and councillors Larry Samson and Ron Kerr sent “was loud and clear — stop spending so much.” Campbell River has experienced a boom in building proposals in 2013 and some of those developments will require better water and sewer services that currently exist in an aging system. Also, other projects are in the works that would require an updated water and sewer system. The juggernaut came from the three newly elected members of council who ran on campaigns of financial austerity. The absence of councillor Ryan Mennie left the door open for the trio. They tied the

vote against councillors Andy Adams, Claire Moglove and Mary Storry, effectively scuttling the borrowing plan. In past decisions, the three new members have been a constant ‘team’ in voting, but being three against four prevented them from winning the decisions. But their success was short term because upon Mennie’s return the majority of council could then bring the bylaws back up and eventually get it passed. If the bylaws had remained as failed, the city would have had to start revising their five-year financial plan, something that could take a lot of time and money. And possibly put some major projects on hold. City staff had recommended borrowing $10.2 million for water infrastructure upgrades and $4.8 million for sewer upgrades over a 15-year period. Samson led off the attack saying he thought the city was spending too much money it doesn’t have too fast and that using reserves for some projects was the wrong idea. He said the city was already proceeding with a $4 million downtown upgrade and still has to deal with what is expected to be a $4 million tab for reconnecting the city’s water system due to BC Hydro’s John Hart relocation project. Jakeway said he was against the alternate process to referendum and wanted taxpayers to have a say in the borrowing process, saying it could be included in the upcoming referendum for expanding the city’s southern boundary which could come as early as later this year. Under the alternate proposal put forth by staff, council would approve the bylaw before sending it to the Inspector of Municipalities for approval. Then the proposal would be publicized and the public would have 30 days to respond. ncameron@courierislander.com

It is called an “Orphan Disease” and because of bone marrow transplant. Yet. this, there is no research, no funds, The Courier Islander introduced her to our readers last month.

Lauren has defied those odds. The family heard that a Vancouver doctor had success with a Crohn’s patient who had a bone marrow transplant. Crohn’s Disease has very similar symptoms. Bone marrow transplants are also being used to treat multiple sclerosis and some other auto-immune diseases where the body attacks itself. She had appointment with Dr. John Sheppard, head of the Leukemia/ Bone Marrow Transplant Program of B.C. at the Vancouver General

Hospital, on June 19, to pursue the transplant. “Lauren was sombre throughout the drive to her appointment,” said Jarvis, who accompanied her, along with Lauren’s parents, Sandi and Dan Paulsen. “She had accepted the pending bone marrow transplant, that she would be very sick but then she could be cured. She accepted that she would lose her hair through the chemotherapy treatment and had decided not to wait until it fell out as she would donate her blonde, wavy hair to the cancer society before she started the bone marrow transplant. “Dr. Sheppard said Lauren was

the first patient he ever had with Eosinophilic Gastroenteritis,” said Jarvis. (It was previously reported there are only two people in BC with this condition) “He had researched it prior to her appointment but there is very little documentation on it. He asked Lauren what symptoms she has had from the time of being diagnosed through a scoping at the age of eight. She said she has migraines and pain every day and just feels awful all the time. She is small in stature, she is pale, with dark circles around her eyes.” Lauren survives on hypo-allergenic formula fed via a tube into her stomach. She has osteoporosis from the use of steroids. She also gets eczema and dermatitis. She gets IV injections every four months for three days in a row to put calcium back into her bones, something that she will be doing for at least a decade. She feels sick all the time and spends most of her time in bed. Lauren recently had an anaphalactic reaction to an iron infusion and almost died. There are drugs that can help this young woman, and possibly restore her quality of life. It is proving very difficult to obtain them. The Special Access Programme (SAP) allows practitioners to request access to drugs that are unavailable for sale in Canada. This access is limited to patients with serious or life-threatening conditions on a compassionate or emergency basis when conventional therapies have failed, are unsuitable, or are unavailable. See Lauren on page 8.

Centennial Pool is open

After a minor delay Centennial Park Pool is now open for fun in the water.

Watering early in the day minimized moisture loss through evaporation and uses up to 30% less water.

After some technical hitches at the beginning of the season the Centennial Pool at 4th and Alder is now open for the season. The early schedule runs until June 28 and the full schedule takes effect on June 29 and runs to Aug. 25. The pool offers swim lessons, Bronze Medallion and Cross courses as well as a Junior Lifeguard camp. This year the length swimming times have been increased and there are additional family swims. New to the schedule this year are

aquafit classes and swim fit classes (a coached swim workout to improve endurance and stroke technique) which start on July 2. Every Wednesday the kids can come to the themed fun swims from 2:30 – 4 p.m. Each week has a different costume theme and there are games and prizes. On Saturday, Aug. 24 (new date) the Rotary club of Campbell River will be hosting the Duck Dip at the pool. For details and schedule information call 250-923-7911.

Lauren from page 6. “He asked if Lauren had tried a monoclonal antibody drug,” said Jarvis. Photo by Ken Zaharia “Children’s Hospital tried to get a special dispensation for the drug but was denied by Health Canada.” Drug companies do provide some compassionate access, but only on a case-by-case basis. Bristol-Meyers, the company who makes this drug, has said that fewer than 100 melanoma patients, most in the United States, have been treated with the monoclonal antibody. While some of them have shown positive results, the side-effects remain unclear. “So there will be some genetic testing,” said Jarvis. “This would strengthen the ‘business case’ in getting the drug released to Lauren and the request for funding coverage. It is a leukemia drug and it is covered by the cancer society for cancer patients but it would not be covered for Lauren and it is very expensive. RICA “The doctor can try to get it released on compassionate grounds and then if it works he will fight for her to get it covered under Pharmacare.” “We asked what the turnaround time

will be,” said Jarvis. “Dr. Sheppard said weeks but not months. He said Lauren will not fall between the cracks, he will follow up. I pointed out that people with orphan diseases do fall between the cracks and he agreed. He said that he may not be able to do anything for Lauren but it will not be for lack of trying.” Jarvis said that a bone marrow transplant has not yet been ruled out. “The doctor is not afraid of being the first to do something but a transplant is not without great risks. There would be significant morbidity and mortality.” “Everything Dr. Sheppard said makes sense but we could not help but feel let down,” said Jarvis. “Lauren was making future plans on post secondary education, future jobs, hobbies and having children. Now she must wait again for the hope of a better treatment and she is having a bit of a tough time right now in dealing with a longer wait to hope for a better quality of life as she has waited 12 years already. One thing for sure is that Lauren will be making history in the medical world.” sthomson@courierislander.com

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 Listening to the people The most recent City of Campbell River council meeting had just about every member of council voting for what they believe the electorate wanted. The first one came over the proposed Telus tower in Willow Point. The proposal would help solve poor cell phone service in that area and at the same time bring in about $15,000 in cash per year from Telus for that privilege. The problem however was that the location was in a park, near a residential neighbourhood and several residents in the area voiced their concern to council that they did not want it anywhere near there. And on Tuesday night, councillor after councillor gave their reasons for turning the Telus tower down, all underlining their stance with a statement about representing the people who elected them and carrying out their wishes. The second incident was somewhat similar. Mayor Walter Jakeway and councillors Ron Kerr and Larry Samson all ran in the last election on campaigns directed at financial austerity and how the city needed to tighten its belt. So when the bylaws to allow the city to borrow up to $15 million for badly needed water and sewer works came up, the trio voted as they have all along. This time however, the fact that councillor Ryan Mennie was not in attendance, changed the playing field entirely. It has been no secret the three seem to be on the same page on several matters and that their triangle is simply outgunned by the four other votes on council. Tuesday night they, as Jakeway pointed out, fired a “shot across the bow” of those opposed to the trio’s wishes for drastically cutting expenses and spending. Was it premeditated? Depending on the time frame you would put to it. In the short time before the council meeting when it was apparent Mennie would be a no show? Yes, perhaps there was some premeditation. But in reality all three were not exactly warm to the borrowing idea that was accepted and originally passed in the city’s five year capital plan. The real truth of the matter is that they would have voted against the bylaws anyway. Previous poll: How do you think Tortorella will do as the Canucks’ coach. 24% said they won’t make the playoffs, 44% said they would. 16% said the Sedins will have to be tougher and that Tortorella won’t make it until Christmas.

From our readers

Warm hearts and penguins It is with humility and warmth in our hearts that we extend a sincere thanks and pure gratitude to our Campbell River family. To say we are touched by the support and generosity merely scratches the surface of our feelings. We have a vision of the emperor penguins who huddle together in the winter storm with their babies at their feet protecting them and sheltering them from harm. Like the penguins, we work together as a family to meet their needs and provide for them but it is our extension of family, friends, acquaintances and the Campbell

River clan that then protects, supports and provides the shelter for us as a whole. It is in our hearts and minds to thank each and every one of you because it is as individuals that you have come together, unified, in efforts and stunning accomplishments. We return the love and deeply thank you Campbell River for reaching out to us during this tumultuous and frightening challenge. It is within this embrace that we can continue to look after our angel to her vivacious and healthy, spirited self again. Sincerely, Christa and Dax Corrigall

an up and down ride. They became less popular after World War I when men got accustomed to uniform belts. Over the years, they swung in and out of fashion; but more out than in. Somewhere along the line they became labelled as underwear, fit only to be seen on lumberjacks, sledge-hammering railroad navvies or tycoons caught with their suit jackets off. But suspenders fill a need. As all old guys learn when gravity beckons and your butt falls off, belts just won’t do the job anymore. Indeed, some health advisors consider reliance on belts to be positively unhealthy. “There are more (bulging) stomachs caused by the wearing of a belt” wrote one Chicago doctor, “than any other one thing that I

And me. But I am not trying to make a fashion statement, break into the movies or host my own TV show. I wear a belt because it gives me a place to hang the pouch of my Swiss Army knife; I wear suspenders to keep my pants up. My advice to my fellow buttless colleagues: be not afraid. Hang in there. And for those who don’t like my advice: belt up.

of Prey Pilot Project to be used at local landfills

A recent study shows that landfill birds may pose a risk of fecal contamination to our drinking water. A Bird Impact Assessment conducted for the Comox Valley and Campbell River Waste Management Centres last year, observed the behaviour of several bird species at both landfill sites that included gulls, crows, ravens and eagles and if their feces were affecting the quality of water at Comox Lake and McIvor Lake. Although the study indicates there is no public health risk from the bird population that frequents the landfills to the general public, it still suggested that animal wastes could affect water quality due to nutrient loading and introduction of pathogens. “The study recognized that there are bacteria in the natural processing of the waste of the sea gulls. So the question is, ‘is the landfill adding to a voluminous type of presence from the birds out there?” said CVRD manager of solid waste, Thomas Boatman. The chlorination treatment of drinking water applied to both lakes are deemed adequate to disinfect and eliminate bacteria such as Campylobacter and Salmonella found in gull feces. And that the transferring of pathogens to human when ingesting water while swimming at the lake has not resulted in any recorded instances of Campylobacter associated illnesses or Salmonella in North America. However, the role wild birds play in human diseases is still largely understudied according to the report, which indicated that because no specific testing of the presence Campylobacter and Salmonella has been undertaken, “it is impossible to quantify the level of risk to the public of exposure to these pathogens through primary

contact recreation.” Based on evaluated risks to the public, the study stressed that bird control measures should be undertaken at both regional waste management centres to reduce the number of scavenger birds, especially during the winter months. In January this year, peak gull numbers at the Comox landfill were 3,655 and in Campbell River 1,035. The CVRD board looked at two options - to erect an enclosure of the area via wires or netting or the use of trained birds of prey. It favoured the latter and agreed to introduce a Birds of Prey Pilot Project. Staff reported that other areas like the Nanaimo Regional Landfill and Hartland Landfill are currently employing trained birds to reduce gull and corvid numbers. “They’re using them to chase away the sea gulls,” said CVRD manager of solid waste, Thomas Boatman. “We’re now ready to go out for a request for proposal. We have it in our budget and we’re going to do that in the fall.” The project will be introduced at the Comox Valley site first on a trial basis due to Campbell River landfill having more eagles which have a tendency to keep the sea gulls away. It will be expanded to Campbell River if it is effective. Boatman said the regional district is always looking for ways to improve its landfill operations. “Our operational practices have reduced the amount of birds that are at landfills,” said Boatman. “We’ve introduced different methods of covering the waste as it is placed in the landfill.” The regional district’s composting project is also reducing the organic waste that scavenger birds prey on.

Council turns down Telus tower for Willow Point Park By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander Campbell River city council voted unanimously Tuesday night not to allow a Telus tower to be constructed in Willow Point Park. Councillor Larry Samson made the motion to axe the plan that would have garnered the city about $15,000 in payments per year. Samson said the city could not approve the deal without clear policy on commercialization in city parks. He also said people who have cell phones do that by choice, but putting a tower in the park and near residential neighbourhoods would be subjecting people to a “no choice� situation on radio frequency waves. “The city has no policy, no guidelines on commercialization in our parks and I think it is paramount, very important that we have

public consultation and we allow our commissions that we’ve recently appointed to do their work and to have public consultation as to what is considered allowable commercialization within our parks,� said Samson. “We have heard from the Telus delegation that they have tried other sites and they got turned down and there’s a reason they got turned down at other sites. So they come to our site trying to get in. The science world is divided on this issue, there are concerns expressed about the RF waves that are given off by these cell tower sites. With cell phones we do have a personal choice whether we decide to carry them or not. But with a cell tower site within our parks, there is no choice.� What followed after Samson’s motion were statements by councillor after councillor that they heard the people of the area loud

This is an interactive print newspaper

and clear and that they could no support the Telus deal. “With due respect to Telus and their cell tower I think this is an issue of neighbourhoods and communities and whether or not council respects and supports them,� said councillor Ron Kerr. “If it was my neighbourhood I certainly would hope so and if it was my neighbourhood I would hope that council would listen to my concerns. In this case I think we’ve heard from the Willow Point community and I think it is now time for Telus to consider plan B.� That plan B, however, may not be feasible according to Brent Shannon of Medallion Wireless, on behalf of Telus Mobility. “We eliminated the viable alternate locations, we have a need for improved coverage,� Shannon said at a council meeting two weeks ago.“The need is significant and will increase over time as voice data continues to increase. Telus is preparing to invest $450,000 on the site. If the proposed current location is not acceptable again, we don’t believe there is another site which will be suitable to provide improved coverage for the

residential areas surrounding Willow Point Park, to provide access to emergency services while people are in the park.� Councillor Mary Storry said she had been open minded about the issue at first, but came to the conclusion that it should not happen. “When this proposal first came up for council I expressed some concern, the same issue that councillor Samson raised about commercial enterprises on community park property, but I was prepared to wait and see what the outcome of the Telus public engagement would be,� she said. “And the result of that engagement was not positive. While they might not be in agreement with some of the reasons the public has offered for their opposition, it doesn’t change the result. To ignore the results of the process that Telus initiated and we agreed to would be negating that purpose. I believe that reasonable opportunity was offered by Telus to the neighbourhood to provide their input and that this process should be respected.� Continued on page 17.

Keep an eye on your pet this Canada Day During the Canada Day festivities, some family members may drool, tremble, pant, lose bladder and bowel control and run away from home. In fact, more dogs go missing on Canada Day (and the fourth of July) than any other time of the year. The SPCA and other animal shelters receive increased calls from distressed owners whose dogs have run away when exposed to the sound of fireworks. Many of these dogs can end up several kilometres from home. Dogs have been known to jump through plate glass windows to escape loud noises, and easily jump over, or dig their way under fences that would normally contain them. “The roaring thunder of fireworks can cause animals to panic, putting both pets and people in danger,” said Lorie Chortyk, BC SPCA general manager of community relations. “When dogs and cats are fright-

ened they are more likely to run away from their homes, jump out of open windows or dart into traffic. Stressed pets can also behave out of character, even scratching or biting people.” said Chortyk. There are things you can do to make life easier for you and your dog during the celebrations. Keep your dog indoors on fireworks night. To help muffle the noise and prevent animals from escaping, remember to close the windows of your home and draw the curtains. Some pets do well left in a separate room with the radio or television on to mask the sound of fireworks. Be sure to leave plenty of toys in the room for your pet so that he doesn’t think he’s being isolated as a punishment. Direct supervision is important to help prevent injury or escape. If you cannot supervise your dog on the night consider making alternative arrange-

%

ments so your dog will be supervised by a responsible person. Make sure your dog is microchipped and that your contact details are up to date on the microchip register. Also ensure they are wearing an ID tag so they can be easily returned if they accidentally escape. Dogs who panic can choke themselves on a collar or lead, so never tether your dog during these times and never use a choke chain to restrain your dog. Never have your pets around you when setting off fireworks in your yard and never take your dog with you to your neighborhood or town fireworks display. This won’t only keep them from getting scared and bolting, but it will also spare them the burn injuries that dogs commonly get from chasing and trying to catch or eat fireworks.

Telus tower nixed

Continued from page 16. Councillor Andy Adams said the city has already experienced some commercialization in parks, adding that he while doesn’t believe there is a danger posed from the towers he had to go with what the people in the neighbourhood made clear. “We have a form of commercialization now, and that is vending machines that provide a service to the public.” he said. “So I don’t have a problem with a portion of commercialization that helps offset operating expenses within our parks. It’s common throughout British Columbia if not Canada. “I certainly am not a scientist and I can’t comment one way or another as for the harmful or lack of effects of the tower, certainly in my personal opinion it’s a non-issue. That said, we are elected to represent the public and the neighbourhood there, as Mrs. Latchford has clearly demonstrated, has made it clear that people in that area are not in favour of this for a multitude of reasons, and because of that I can’t support the tower going ahead. I would encourage Telus who have been a good corporate sponsor for our Willow Point Park and also a good corporate citizen, to maybe look at alternate locations. The North East corner of the park, where there is no playground, there is no splash park...and is a very minimally populated area.” Councillor Claire Moglove said he heard lots of reasons for not allowing the tower from a lot of people. “The fact of the matter is that the vast, vast majority of the neigh-

bourhood do not want the cell tower in the park nor do they want it in that particular area. So I do have to respect the public process that was initiated,” she said. Meanwhile the woman who led the charge against the tower was so happy after Tuesday’s meeting she could cry. And she wasn’t happy about a possible other site in the park. “I could cry. I find it doesn’t belong there, it’s a residential area, it shouldn’t be in a residential area,” she said. “You move it there, I don’t know how close it would be to the nearest house but there is so much research going on where cell towers radiate into one direction longer than into the other and it affects certain areas much more than others. I’m not an expert, but it just doesn’t belong there. It’s a park, stay out of the park. “That cell coverage for certain people I’m sure there are issues, but it was said tonight that if you have a cell phone you use it, you don’t, your choice. You have wifi, you use it. you don’t, your choice. But somebody puts a cell tower, and it doesn’t really matter where that cell tower is, nobody has a choice any more. “You know what I have in my pocket? A radiation meter. And when I drive by the cell tower on Dogwood it changes from very little downtown even near the fire hall to going up high, high, high as I’m passing that tower. So I just feel nobody has the right to expose the community, the people to something they have not agreed to.” ncameron@courierislander.com

Unique display for Grandmothers’ cause

A truly exceptional exhibit of artwork has been circulating the Western

provinces for the past few months and is due to open at the Campbell River

Museum at 470 Island Highway on Friday, July 5. Not only is the work

exceptional, but the artists who produced the work did so with the intent of giving to a cause. In this case, the cause is one that has been taken up by participants in the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign — launched by the Stephen Lewis Foundation to financially assist grandmothers in Africa caring for children orphaned by HIV and AIDS. The Royal City Gogos of New Westminster (gogo means grandmother in Zulu) is the group behind this latest exhibit. Local ‘grandmothers’ will be in attendance throughout the show, and will be selling their Kazuri jewellery at the Museum on the July 6 and 7. Maria Box of the Comox Valley is one of five local artists who produced textile work for the multimedia show called ‘Celebrating African Grandmothers, Heroes of the Continent’. In total, 35 artists worldwide participated and 40 pieces were produced. Box heard about the opportunity to participate through her membership with Comox Valley Glacier Grannies and was involved with the previous travelling show, ‘Turning the Tide, one ripple at a time’. Box has been sewing from an early age, acquiring her first sewing machine at the age of six. She began as a textile artist but took up quilting

to develop discipline in her art. Her work and methods are unusual as she uses recycled clothing and synthetic fabrics to produce her work, and teaches her methods to others. The piece of art she contributed to this show, entitled “Sisters”, took her about two months to make. She found inspiration for the work from the notion that in Third World countries, many people subsist on the three sisters — corn, squash and beans. It proved to be a fitting allegory for the collaborative nature of working on the art show with a group of similar minded ladies who, she says, are highly motivated and hard workers. Barb Taylor was one of her students and was thrilled to have her piece chosen for this juried art show, as it was her first attempt at producing textile art. She says that she is “awed by the generosity” of all who are involved. The art work will be on view until Sunday, July 14. Admission to the Museum at Campbell River gallery is by donation, and the Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For further information call 250-287-3103. Examples of the pieces can be seen on the Museum website at www. crmuseum.ca.

Way back in 2007 I was lucky enough to compete in the first ever BC Bike Race. It was a life changing experience, and such an amazing week, that I had to go back two years later and do it again. If you haven’t heard of this race, it is a seven day mountain James Durand bike race that travels around Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and the Whistler corridor. Racers ride between 35 and 70 km each day on some of BC’s best singletrack, and the support crew move the massive base camp from town to town while fully supporting the racers for the entire week. This Canada Day, the BC Bike race comes through Campbell River. Close to 550 racers from 26 countries are here to experience the amazing trails we get to ride every day. Base camp for the race will be set up at the Sportsplex along with the big finish line. The racers will consist of some of the worlds fastest racers, some hard core amateurs looking for a huge challenge and some riders just looking for the best tour of BC trails possible. Obviously, this race is a really cool event for the participants and the spectators, but it also benefits the community in a huge way. Press from all over world travel with the race, or compete in the race. The articles written about Campbell River riding will reach the entire globe and create more exposure than we can possibly measure. Add to that the significant donations BC Bike Race has made to the local cycling club for trail work, and Campbell River wins again. Drop by the Sportsplex on July 1 and watch some passionate mountain bikers fly through the finish line on day two of this seven day adventure. I’m James Durand and I’m goin’ ridin’.

Ouellete placed first overall in the 85cc 12-16 age class as well as second overall in the supermini. Ryder Roth, also from Campbell River, placed first overall in the 50cc 7-8 class and second in the 65cc class. Roth has gone undefeated so far this season in the 50cc class. The day was marred by several crashes, including one involving Blaine Morrow of Black Creek. Morrow, 17, was racing in the MX2 Intermediate Class when he crashed coming over the finish line jump. The ambulance was called and he was taken to Campbell River Hospital and then air lifted to Victoria. He is still in serious but stable condition.

the River Rugby’s ‘golden girls’ Race rows Saturday It was the little team that could and did. After only three practice sessions together, the Vancouver Island Tsunami U16 girls, with Campbell River players Georgia Bellamy and Kristine Osachuk in the lineup, won the B2Gold Provincial Regional Rugby Championships with an intense display of defence over favourites Fraser Valley in the finals, coming out on top with a score of 10-7. The last 10 minutes were spent in Tsunami’s end, with incredible commitment to tackle after tackle giving Fraser Valley limited options. Dave Ward, Tsunami’s support coach currently based in Vancouver, described their performance, “I have to say that in the final game I was standing behind their (the Tsunami) posts as Tsunami were defending big time those young women really had to give everything for each other and the encouragement they were giving each other was fantastic. The scream when the final whistle went was deafening. I think the ref jumped a foot in the air. It was a really tough game actually none were easy and it took good teamwork to get through, so the Island U16 Tsunami women did a fantastic job.” Photo submitted “After seeing the first trial Campbell River’s Georgia Bellamy, left, and Kristine Osachuk, camp and the skill and athletiboth 16, show off their hardware. Bellamy also was awarded cism of all 35 participants, Tsunami’s Best Forward during the B2Gold Provincial I knew this team would turn Regional Championship Tournament.

Busy summer on Mount Washington Mount Washington elevates sightseeing this weekend as the resort kicks off another summer season of festivals, events and treating visitors to one of the North America’s most magnificent views. “The view from the top of the mountain is second to none,” says Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “It’s the kind of view that’s easy to show off to your visiting family and friends.” The resort opens its Mile High Chairlift Rides, family activities and Fat Teddy’s Summer Grill Friday, June 28.

heads at Provincials. They instantly gelled, in huge part to the efforts of coaches Dwayne Mills of G.P. Vanier Secondary in Courtenay and Ryan Hall of Alberni District Secondary in Port Alberni,” says Campbell River Athletic Association President Erin Young. “And having two Campbell River girls able to contribute to that showing and gain that experience is huge for them and can only help girl’s rugby development in our North Island region.” Campbell River Athletic Association’s current focus is on youth rugby with fall club age categories covering ages 7-17. Pre-season training begins in August and is also open to new players wanting to give the sport a go. September and October will see Jamborees for “co-ed minis” which is 11 and under, while the male and female juniors (12 and up) will enjoy a series of 7-aside tournaments prior to the start of their 15aside season. In the meantime, the club invites teens and adults of all experience levels to Touch Rugby on Tuesdays at the Carihi fields from 6-7:30 p.m. For more info contact Erin at 250-202-7642 or eayoung@ me.com. The club’s website is www.campbellriverrugby. webs.com or find them on Facebook - search “Campbell River Athletic Association Rugby”.

SPRING WINDUP The Campbell River Soccer Association’s Spring League had its final day of play Sunday, including action from the Small Fries Division at Robron.

Roller Derby League works well together On Saturday, there was quite a commotion in Powell River as it was taken over by derby girls in town for a doubleheader hosted by Pow!Town Roller Derby. The entire Salish Sea Rollers league was in attendance: the Brick House Betties of Cumberland, featuring several Campbell Riverites, were matched against The Committed of Saltspring Island, and the Rink Minx of Comox Valley, also with Riverites in the lineup, were up against the hosts, Pow!Town. The league’s team of referees and non-skating officials, the Coastal Call Monitors, were also on hand to ensure skaters played safely and the event ran smoothly. The opening bout was The Committed vs. the Brick House Betties. The Betties took an early and strong lead using strategies such as backwards bridging which aims to keep the opposing jammer behind the pack and minimize her scoring chances. In the second half, The Committed made a comeback and the score got close as the clock ran out. To head coach DB’s relief, the Betties won 224-179. Pow!Town put in a good effort against the Rink Minx Rollergirls in the second bout of the doubleheader, but did not have the experience to win against the Minx’s hard-hitting game. The Minx’s blockers efficiently held back Powell River’s jammers. Jamming for the Rink Minx, Whiskey Jack could not be stopped and scored a 30 point jam (a jam is a two minute play; jammers are the point-scorers). There were some hard hits exchanged, particularly between Lee-Thal Lyanimal skating for Pow!Town and Foxy McMuff of the Rink Minx. Although both teams had a tough time keeping out of the penalty box, the Minx wrapped up the game with a score of 367-206. Both the Betties and the Minx won their bouts at the doubleheader, so they are eager to play against each other in Courtenay on July 6 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre (doors at 7 p.m.). Tickets for the family-friendly event will be available soon at the following locations: Comox Community Centre, Happy’s Source for Sports, Swicked Cycle, and the Waverley Hotel. Adults $7 ($10 at the door), youth (11-18) $5, children (10 & under) free.

What is a Condominium? It is a form of legal ownership and most often thought of as high-rise residential buildings. However, this can also apply to townhouse complexes, individual houses and low-rise residential buildings. In British Columbia, condominiums are known as strata. What Do I Own When I Buy a Condominium (Strata)? You own your unit, as well as a percentage of the common property elements allocated to the unit. Such elements may be parking spots, storage facilities and green areas. What Rules and Restrictions Might I Encounter in a Strata? Every Strata is governed by its own unique rules, regulations and bylaws. These may be very strict or very relaxed depending on the nature of the strata corporation. These rules may include – pets, noise, parking and when certain amenities may be used and number of occupants per unit. Permission is also required for any changes to the exterior of the unit – example all exterior doors may be designated one colour for all. What are the Maintenance Duties? Interior – you are responsible for unit plumbing, appliances, heating, air-conditioning or electrical systems that are contained in and serve on that unit.

Riding across the country for his mother By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

Hoffman, 22, fresh out of school with a degree in biology, is on a mission. That mission started in Victoria last week and will end at the other side of the country in St. John’s, Newfoundland, sometime around the end of September. He is on a solo bike ride across Canada to raise funds for the BC

Cancer Foundation and to raise awareness of the BRCA1 gene mutation. He has no entourage, he will face his own battles head on and fight through them just like his mother and so many others who battle cancer and in his mother’s case, more than once. The BRCA1 gene mutation has been linked to an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancer. It can be inherited from either a mother or father and may continue to be passed on to future generations. “I was only eight years old when I was told my mom had breast cancer,” said Hoffman. “Although I did not fully understand the implications of such a diagnosis at the time, my mom’s determination to overcome it was clear. Not only did she survive her bout with breast cancer but she went on to compete in multiple marathons, triathlons, and two half Iron man races before setting her sights on the 2012 Ironman competition. But only two months before the event my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. Despite being unable to train leading up to the event, her passion and determination lead her to the finish line where she became a member of the elite group of Ironman finishers.” His itinerary will take him from his starting location in Victoria through to Port Hardy, on the boat to Prince Rupert, and then east, hoping all the way that people across the country donate to this cause that is close to his heart. “Four days into it I have met a lot of people and am going to be camping my way through for the most part,” he said. “I am lucky I have a good friend Melissa (St.

Louis) in Campbell River so will be able to stay with her and also take some time out for some salmon fishing later. I am really looking forward to that.” A woman’s risk of developing breast cancer and/or ovarian cancer is greatly increased if she inherits the harmful BRCA1 or 2 mutation. Men with these mutations also have an increased risk of breast cancer. The risk makes it likely to get breast cancer at an earlier age, before menopause, and often has multiple close family members who have been diagnosed with these diseases, including not just breast and ovarian cancer, but pancreatic, stomach, gallbadder and bile duct cancer and melanoma. Men with the genetic mutation have an increased risk in testicular cancer, prostrate cancer as well as breast cancer. This mutation makes people have a five times greater risk to develop breast cancer. Genetic tests are available. The cost for BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation testing usually ranges from several hundred to several thousand dollars. Insurance policies vary with regard 3 bedroom 1860 sq. ft. up to whether or not and a full 2 bedroom 1000 sq. ft. the cost of testing is covered, suite down. but insurers only Phone 250-850-9811 cover them for women thought to be at high risk because of family history of breast

or ovarian cancer or other risk factors. On June 16 he got some good news on his blog from a friend who works at the B.C. Cancer Agency. “A big win for BRCA research the other day. It is no longer patented by Myriad and we can soon offer women cheaper testing for BRCA mutations.” A Supreme Court ruling last week said that Myriad Genetics Incorporated cannot patent the BRCA genes, which are tested to check a woman’s risk for breast and ovarian cancer. Mutations in these genes are what led Angelina Jolie to have both her breasts removed because she had such a high cancer risk. Some experts think the court ruling may lead to lower cost testing because there could be more competition. In fact one of Myriad’s competitors has already announced it would offer the same test at a far lower price. “As I ride across Canada I hope to raise awareness of the BRCA gene mutations and the testing available to those who are likely to have an inherited mutation,” he said. “Genetic testing may encourage people to take steps to reduce their cancer risk and to be screened more often and at an earlier age.” Oh. Keegan got his fish. Of course, this is Campbell River.

Ron Francis and his to-scale carving of Campbell River’s first fire truck.

Truck carving too good to put up for auction Local firefighters are so impressed with the wood carving replica of Campbell River’s first fire truck that they are not willing to raffle it off. Ron Francis, a long-time Campbell River resident and talented wood carver donated a to-scale replica of the 1932 International Fire Truck, with the suggestion that it be raffled off. But the fire department considers this a very sentimental piece of art and it will be proudly displayed at the No. 1 fire station. And to honor his work, Campbell River Professional Firefighters Local 1668 are donating $500 in Ron Francis’s name to the BC Professional Firefighters Burn Fund. A registered charity established in 1978 by the BC Professional Fire Fighters Association, the Burn Fund provides life saving, life supporting, and life enriching services to the people in British Columbia. More than 3,700 professional fire fighters from 50 communities in British Columbia and the Yukon are building the Burn Fund’s vision. They dedicate their time and skills to support burn survivors and increase the public’s knowledge about fire and burn safety issues through the work the Burn Fund does with its Burn Awareness, Research and Prevention Programs.

The City of Campbell River has initiated a detailed study to explore the implications of extending the city boundary to the south. This study will be completed by Urban Systems, an independent, professional services firm with experience in this type of work. At Tuesday’s council meeting, Urban Systems introduced the study process and explained how their work will review the impacts of a boundary extension on all parties, including study area residents and property owners, the City of Campbell River, and the Strathcona Regional District. A key part of the work will also involve reviewing the costs and logistics of providing sewer service to the area.

The detailed, technical study will take place over the next two to three months. Following the completion of the technical work, a public consultation process will take place to present and discuss the study findings and to gauge the interest of residents and property owners in proceeding with a municipal boundary extension. “We expect to have the study’s findings ready to share with the community this fall to give all affected residents – both inside and outside Area D – the opportunity to fully understand the boundary extension proposal and its implications,” said James Klukas, Community Planner with Urban Systems. “Before we engage with the community in a formal way, it is important that

Boundary extension study our team first completes a comprehensive and balanced study of the implications of a boundary extension. Once the study is complete we will be able to provide all residents with a factual and complete snapshot of the impacts.” Following the technical study, the decision on a boundary extension would be made by residents and property owners. In a large boundary extension proposal such as this one, typically a referendum vote is held within the study area. For the boundary extension to proceed, a majority of residents and property owners would need to vote in favour of becoming a part of the city. Approval from the City residents is also required in a separate process.

Greatly missed by her beloved husband Ted, her children Mike and Catherine (Omid), and her dear grandchildren Thairah and Mikylee. We remember Ellen at the campsite, in the boat, cooking dinners, making music. We remember the cross-country skiing, the snow forts, the canned fruit, the fresh bread, the band trips, the cub camps, the rows of flowers in the vegetable garden, the summer vacations, and the Christmas mornings. We remember her cheering us on. Ellen was very active in the Sayward and Campbell River communities, volunteering on committees, and helping at the school. She had many hobbies, from the trombone and piano to steel-head fishing, oil painting, and choral music. She was always willing to help those in need, and she touched many lives. She was kind-hearted, scrupulous, funny, and a straight-talker. No service by request of the deceased. 273404

LIGHTFOOT - Ian Gerald Jan. 23, 1954 – June 24, 2013 Ian will be remembered for his commitment to maintaining friendships, his mostly gentle but sometimes wicked sense of humour, and his intelligence, which was not always fully recognized. Except for his birth in Alert Bay and the years he lived on the mainland attending UBC and BCIT, Ian lived most of the remainder of his life in Campbell River. He earned his accounting designation (CMA) in 1990. Ian especially enjoyed outdoor pursuits such as fishing, hunting and boating, but he also had a powerful golf swing and liked puttering in his workshop. He had a wide circle of friends from his school years, employment (Controller at both Mt. Washington Ski Resort and Fresh Water Marina) and recreational activities, so he will be missed by many people. Ian bore his many health problems (cancer, Parkinson’s disease, among others) with dignity, and tried hard not to have them interfere with his enjoyment of life. Predeceased by his father Art (2008), Ian is survived by his mother Carola, wife Claire, brothers Allan (Ann) of Victoria, Roy (Ruth) of Richmond, Wes (Janet) of Vernon, brother-in-law Craig (Susan) Tallman of Ontario, cousin Jack Clark (Campbell River), 8 nieces & nephews and numerous other relatives. The Lightfoot Family is extremely grateful for the kindness and support shown from friends and from the staff of the local Palliative Care Program, especially in Ian’s final few weeks. Donations made in Ian’s name to the Campbell River Hospice Society would be gratefully appreciated. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Saturday July 6th at 1 p.m. at the Campbell River Community Centre with reception to follow.

PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

20TH ANNIVERSARY

Photo by Ken Zaharia

The 2013 Campbell River Poker Run marked its 20th anniversary Sunday with a large turnout of motorcycles and riders at the Quinsam Hotel. Annually the Poker Run starts and finishes at the Quinsam Hotel, with stops at Griffin Pub, Backstreet Pub, Cumberland Hotel and the CR Eagles in-between. All proceeds from the popular event go to British Columbia Coalition of Motorcyclists and Campbell River Search & Rescue.

Confidence in small business holds steady Small business confidence in British Columbia held steady in June at 65.6, a sharp contrast to the national average which fell sharply, and is now at its lowest point since July 2009, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB). The Business Barometer® index for BC in May stood at 64.9. An index of between 65 and 70 is generally associated with an economy growing at its potential. “Clearly BC has bucked a trend that other provinces are experiencing,” says CFIB BC director of provincial affairs Mike Klassen. “The recent resolution of the province’s political uncertainty could be a factor, but typically political events have little or no effect on small business confidence. Nonetheless, the stabil-

ization may have helped BC small business confidence.” The national drop in optimism is centred almost entirely in Ontario and Quebec (56.8 and 55.3, respectively). Confidence remains strongest in Alberta (68.6), with Saskatchewan (67.3) edging up. Newfoundland and Labrador (66.3) and British Columbia (65.6) are also above the national average. Speaking to the national picture, Ted Mallett, CFIB’s Chief Economist & Vice-President says: “Despite weak results, there are signs we are nearing a floor. Short-term employment plans are net positive, while reporting of the general state of business health is holding steady.” In BC, 23 per cent of businesses expect to add full-time staff within

three months versus eight per cent who anticipate a reduction, and 39 per cent consider the general health of their business to be “good” against 14 per cent who replied with “bad”. Measured on a scale of 0 and 100, an index level above 50 means owners expecting their businesses’ performance to be stronger in the next year outnumber those expecting weaker performance. According to past results, index levels normally range between 65 and 70 when the economy is growing at its potential. The June 2013 findings are based on 1,708 responses, collected from a stratified random sample of CFIB members, to a controlled-access web survey. Findings are statistically accurate to +/- 2.4 per cent 19 times in 20.

Notice is hereby given that a Public Hearing regarding the following will be held in the Council Chambers of City Hall located at 301 St. Ann’s Road in Campbell River, B.C. at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, 2013. Property owners are required to provide all tenants, leaseholders and occupants with a copy of this Public Hearing Notice. A copy of this proposal may be inspected at the City Hall, Land Use Services Department on any regular business day between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday inclusive except Statutory Holidays. All persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed Bylaw will be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the Bylaw that is the subject of this hearing. Please note that legal considerations prevent Council from receiving any representations or submissions after the close of the Public Hearing. A speakers list will be available for persons wishing to speak at the Public Hearing. You may register in advance by calling 250-286-5700 or at the Public Hearing.

Proposal for 741 Alder Street: That Lot 1, District Lot 73, Sayward Land District, Plan 5773 (741 Alder Street) be rezoned from Residential One (R-1) to Residential Three (R-3) to allow for the construction of a triplex. Legal Description/Civic Address: Lot 1, District Lot 73, Sayward Land District, Plan 5773 741 Alder Street Bylaw No: 3514, 2013. Contact: City of Campbell River, Land Use Services Department at 250-286-5726.

Stroke Awareness Month reminds us to think FAST! Stroke is one of the leading causes of death and disability in Canada. June is Stroke Awareness Month and the Vancouver Island Health Authority urges residents to know the signs of stroke and get help as quickly as possible. Quick diagnosis and treatment of a stroke changes the outcome for a patient; and knowing the warning signs of stroke can ensure that every second counts. Remember, think FAST: · Facial droop: one side of face does not move as well as the other · Arm drift: one arm does not move or drifts downward when held extended

· Speech: patient slurs words, uses the wrong word, or cannot speak at all · Time: to call 9-1-1 The bottom line is, if you notice sudden loss of strength or numbness in the face, arm or leg; sudden difficulty speaking or confusion; or a sudden severe and unusual headache, call 9-1-1. “If you treat stroke patients quickly, before there is irreversible damage to the brain, they can recover completely,” said stroke researcher and neurologist Dr. Andrew Penn. The miracle treatment is a clot-buster called tPA, which is a naturally occurring protein that breaks up blood clots. “If you remove the blockage,

blood can flow freely again,” Penn adds. The Vancouver Island Health Authority continues to build on its success. The Stroke Rapid Assessment Unit, which intervenes after people develop warning signs of impending stroke, has treated over 12,000 patients from the breadth of the island since 2005, sharply reducing hospitalization for stroke. Toronto and Calgary are among Canadian centres now replicating our model of care. The health authority is also leading a $10 million research project, SpecTRA, to develop a quick and easy blood test that could revolutionize the management of this disease.
