New life for old site At left, David Erdman, Director, Investor and Media Relations from Quicksilver’s U.S. Office (left) and David Rushford, Senior VP and COO from Quicksilver’s Canadian office during Monday’s Meet and Greet at the closed Elk Falls Paper Mill site. Over 400 people attended the RSVP event. Quicksilver Resources purchased the Elk Falls site for $8.6 million. They are investigating options to build and operate natural gas liquefaction, storage and on-loading facilities, renaming the site Discovery LNG. The potential multi-billion dollar project will first undergo a feasibility study and then seek regulatory approval. Once approval is received and financing is in place, Quicksilver would begin construction. It’s expected the facility would be operational by 2019 or 2020, with its major customers for their liquefied natural gas being China, Korea and Japan. Said Rushford, “This site is by far the best location for an LNG facility in British Columbia. The community is extremely supportive, it (the site) has access to a deep water port, it’s a brownfield site, excellent infrastructure and Campbell River has a highly educated workforce – we couldn’t be happier.”

Public invited to help shape this downtown visioning workshop In preparation for an upcoming downtown visioning and design charrette, members of the public are invited to share their ideas at an open house/workshop. This fall, the City of Campbell River will host an intensive visioning and design charrette to develop a community-supported concept for vacant land on the waterfront near Roberts Reach Road. This exercise will fine-tune the community vision for this area that was established through the Sustainable Official Community Plan process. “A charrette is a collaborative design and planning session that combines the interests of a diverse group of people to achieve a viable land use and urban design concept,” explains Ross Blackwell, the City’s manager of land use services. “Ideas gathered during the pre-charrette sessions will help structure the charrette

led by a consulting team later this fall.” Pre-charrette workshops will take place: • 7 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 18 – Room 2, Campbell River Community Centre • 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19 – Room 2, Campbell River Community Centre “The charrette later this fall will also offer opportunities for additional public education and input,” Blackwell confirms. The consulting team that will lead the charrette has not yet been selected, but is expected to include experts in architecture and landscape architecture, engineering, city planning and land economics. The area that will be the focus of the charrette is considered a key location for downtown revitalization due to the visual prominence of the site and its proximity to the downtown core.

Fire Department Open House Sept. 21 The Campbell River Fire Department will hold an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 at Fire Hall No. 1 (Dogwood Street). Last year’s event drew a keen crowd when hundreds of Campbell River residents turned out for the event. “Fire Hall No. 1 was crawling with kids for four hours,” says Fire Chief Ian Baikie. “There

‘There is so much beauty in hospice’ - Dwyer By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

That library includes literature for grieving parents, grief after suicide, grief support for children and teens, relaxation techniques, coping with holidays and anniversaries and practical advice and comfort measures for caregivers. In April 2012, Carol-Ann Dwyer noticed her speech was Carol-Ann currently receives home visits from a volunteer slurred and assumed it was caused by some dental work she had where they talk about her life memories. “We talk about almost recently. everything, there is a lot of laughter, it is nice to be able to do The long time Campbell River therapist and owner of Carol’s this and it gives me a break just to go over memories and what I Counselling and Consulting, Women’s Centre local board memam doing with all of that.” ber and group facilitator did not expect what would come 10 As she gets sicker she will access more of the services they months later. offer.

I would love to have said. “I am sure glad hospice is here.” in Victoria, due to the fact Campbell River will no longer See Dwyer on page 4. Carol-Ann described her experience with hospice in Victoria have a facility by the end of Oct. when her youngest brother, 49, was dying of esophageal cancer. “In his last weeks he was staying in hospice and all his siblngs, there are 10 of us, came and stayed with him. There was always someone with him. We sat around and shared stories, up to 15 of us sometimes and there U N F O R G E T TA B L E M O M E N T S was never a limit on visitors or visiting hours. You don’t get that in a hospital. It was a very respectful way to Present allow him and our family to be together and say goodbye. He knew he was safe and in good hands. There is so much beauty in hospice.” Carol-Ann, whose lung capacity has deteriorated and her ability to speak and swallow is impaired, has lost 30 pounds this year and said that when her time comes she wants to go to that (Victoria) hospice. “With this disease, as the muscles no longer work and I get to a place where I am ‘locked in’, meaning I cannot blink or move a finger to communicate even yes or no, it will be very hard for my husband to care for me 24/7,” she said. “He says he can do it but I don’t want our last weeks together spent with him being exhausted. And I want to know I am safe and in good hands. Just like I am now.” Carol-Ann is referring to the care she is receiving from the Campbell River Hospice Society, “I first used their services when my brother was dying,” she said. “I used their library.”

Dwyer from page 3. a local space so I wouldn’t worry about him and what it is doing to him. Wouldn’t it be nice if builders got together and did a spec home they could donate to hospice? Campbell River is such a giving community. Is there the will here and in government circles to have a hospice home available in our community?” Currently the space hospice has in Campbell River is a rented office and they have to vacate that at the end of October. “After 27 years of being renters the society sees the potential in owning a place of our own, especially given the current buyer’s market,” said Iona Wharton, Executive Director of Campbell River Hospice Society, which has won the Campbell River Non Profit of the Year award in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2011. “The house, we need should be big enough to continue the programs we do offer and expand to allow us to do day programs for palliative patients and their caregivers,” she said. “Nobody is really doing this in BC yet, other than Kamloops. When a patient is still well enough to be transported to our house, we would have a nurse on location and the person would spend four to five hours per day having speakers, lunch, relaxation, self care, group time talking to each other, maybe watch a movie have some popcorn, pet therapy, music therapy, having fun and learning together. This time also gives the caregiver a

break.” Wharton stressed that the Society is not part of the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA), and they stand alone as a non-profit charitable organization. They do not receive core funding and rely heavily on their own fundraising measures, grants, donations and membership fees to keep Hospice going. They also accept points from Quality Foods, Heriot Bay Tru Valu, Save on Foods, Canadian Tire Money and bottle returns to the CR Bottle Depot. “It is a well-known fact by those of us in this line of work that Hospice care costs half as much to provide as hospital care does,” said Wharton. “The cost of an acute hospital bed is in the region of $1,000/day whereas the cost of a hospice bed is $275/day, roughly a quarter of the price. This could then free up an acute care bed in the hospital.” “Although saving money isn’t part of our goal, hospice care can greatly reduce costs while providing far better outcomes for families including comfort and peace of mind,” said Wharton. If you would like to support the Campbell River Hospice and their search for a house to call their own, please contact the Society at 250286-1121 or email reception@crhospice.org. Tax receipts are issued for all donations of $10 or more. sthomson@courierislander.com

USED CARS TO BE SOLD AT $77.00 AND UP

The number one volume dealer in Campbell River is overstocked again with used car inventory and will be selling used cars and trucks for as low as seventy-seven dollars and up Saturday, September 14, 2013. Rain or shine. Steve Somerset, General Sales Manager for Bill Howich Chrysler, announced plans to hold the 23rd Annual used car and truck event with used vehicles starting at seventyseven dollars and up Saturday, September 14, 2013. According to Mr. Somerset, sales from the last few months have resulted in an extra amount of used cars and trucks. “In the last few months we have increased our used inventory at a tremendous rate. Now we need to reduce the number of cars and trucks on our lot. During this seventyseven dollar sale every used car and truck will be sold for hundreds to thousands below the original price.” Mr. Somerset said, “Our customers should find these prices as low as auction prices in many cases.” This is the 23rd $77 Sale at our dealership and we have

sold over 750 vehicles into the Campbell River North Island region. Here, every used car and truck is on sale. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED AND NO BIDDING. It’s the perfect opportunity to get a good quality used product at the lowest price possible, including cars for only seventy-seven dollars. All cars and trucks will be on display at 2777 North Island Highway, Campbell River. At 8:30 a.m. all vehicles will be opened so that buyers may inspect the vehicles for one hour before the sale begins at 9:30 a.m. Whomever is sitting behind the wheel at 9:30 a.m. when the prices are DRASTICALLY REDUCED on the windshield will be given first opportunity to purchase the vehicle at the DRASTICALLY REDUCED price. This innovative approach to selling used vehicles will make it easy and quick for anybody in the market to own a good used car or truck at a very low price with no hassle. “We have business managers who will help buyers arrange

low-cost financing, as well as bank representatives that will be present. We’ve got over 3 million dollars in used inventory to choose from. Our total inventory will be over 200 used cars and trucks, including our X-lease inventory. We want to remind everybody that this is a one-day sale only! When our inventory has been reduced, we will remove the sale prices and return to normal operations. “Since we are a local business, we would like to give back to the community,” Mr. Somerset said. “We would rather allow local people to buy these vehicles than wholesale them at an auction.” Any questions can be directed-to 1-877-280-9555 or 250287-9555. Bill Howich Chrysler opens at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 14, 2013, and the sale starts at 9:30 a.m. SHARP! Buyers must be 19 years or older with a valid driver’s license. Just a reminder that all new cars and trucks will also be on sale for this event with savings up to $11,750 off MSRP on some models!

Giant Garage Sale Sensible BC Campaign setting up at Pier runs Sept. 22 on Quadra Island By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

The Quadra Philippines Connection presents its 19th annual Giant Garage Sale to be held on Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Quadra Community Centre from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. All items are by donation and it is advised to come early to take advantage of a multitude of recycled treasures filling the expanse of the community centre including furniture, appliances, household goods, toys, tools, books, clothing and more. A concession selling homebaked goodies, pizza and fresh roasted Aroma coffee will be available to sustain you while you shop. Proceeds from the giant garage sale go to Quadra’s sponsorship of the Basao-Dilag and Lubo-Hilltop preschool/daycare programs in remote areas of Luzon in the northern Philippines. The $5,500 raised annually provides supplies, teacher stipends and bonuses for the two daycares as well as financing special projects such as community backyard gardening and typhoon relief. The Quadra Philippines Connection began in 1994 through IAT (the International Association for Transformation), a small non-profit organization operating out of lower Vancouver Island. IAT has been involved in child sponsorship in the Philippines for over 30 years with a focus on education, leadership skills and youth empowerment. You can check out their website at www. iatcan.org. For more information about the Giant Garage Sale or the Quadra Philippines Connection, contact Carol at 250285-3035.

Learn to square dance Ripple Rockets Square Dance Club started in Campbell River in the early 1950s and is still thriving today. Their current caller couple, Jake and Diana Ring, makes sure that dancing is fun. Square dancing is a wonderful prescription for better health by reducing stress, improving memory, and is a great exercise for mind and body. It is done world-wide and there are many travel opportunities to dance at other clubs. Square dance classes are held at the Eagles Hall, 1999 – 14th Ave. on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The next free lesson is Sept. 16. There are also dances for more advanced dancers on other evenings. For more information contact Chris and Terry Trehearne at 250923-9492.

If you get the munchies then ice cream cones are available at the concession nearby but there is no smoking on Discovery Pier. This is just a reminder because the Sensible BC Campaign is setting up their information and petition signing on the Pier starting today. Matthew Wilkinson, canvasser for the campaign, said that they will be there from noon to 5 p.m. every day through to late November, “We are allowed to be there because it is a public place,” said Wilkinson, a canvasser for the group which has struggled to find locations where they can set up. “We have over 30 canvassers here in Campbell River so there will be a variety of people available to serve anyone who is on the provincial voters list and who wishes to endorse this campaign.” Dana Larsen, Sensible BC Director is the force behind the Sensible BC Campaign, a group which is working to decriminalize the simple possession of cannabis in British Columbia through the Sensible Policing Act. The Sensible Policing Act would

to force a vote,” said Larsen. “To have a provincial vote in September 2014, we need to get the signed support of 10 per cent of registered voters in every riding.” The Sensible BC organizers said that British Columbia has Canada’s highest rate of police reported incidents for simple possession of marijuana. They report that police spend about twice as much time and money as the national average on dealing with marijuana possession. On their website, they report that BC police spent their time on over 19,000 incidents of marijuana possession in 2010 alone, a rate of 420 incidents per 100,000 people. The national average is just 220 per 100,000. Over 3,580 British Columbians were charged with simple possession of marijuana last year. This is close to double the rate of charges of any other province. “The Sensible Policing Act still allows police to deal with drivers impaired by marijuana or any other substance in the exact same way they always have,” said Larsen. “There are no changes in this regard and it treats possession of marijuana by a minor in the exact same way as alcohol.” sthomson@courierislander.com

amend the Police Act, to redirect all police in the province from taking any action, including searches, seizures, citations or arrests, in cases of simple cannabis possession by adults. This would apply to all RCMP and municipal police in BC. “It is true that marijuana is prohibited under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, which is federal legislation,” said Larsen. “However, the provinces control the administration of justice which includes policing and police priorities. All police in BC operate under the authority of the BC Police Act. Directing the use of police resources through an amendment to the Police Act is entirely within provincial jurisdiction.” The group is promoting a provincial referendum on the Sensible Policing Act. To hold a referendum they will need to collect over 350,000 signatures from voters all across the Province. BC’s referendum system has fixed election dates. The next one is scheduled for September 2014. “It’s not easy to get on the ballot, the HST referendum campaign is the only one ever to succeed in getting enough signatures

St. Ann’s project on target As the official end of summer approaches, work on the St. Ann’s upgrade project is on track, and contractors are planning ahead to the start of the second phase and related road detours. “The project is on schedule and on budget,” said Jason Hartley, Manager of Capital Works for the City of Campbell River. “To date we have had no significant issues that would have changed the contractor’s timing estimate.” As of the first week of September, all underground work along St. Ann’s Road on the west side of Alder Street is complete, and this section has been paved. The contractor has also installed new storm system piping on Dubeau and Beech streets. The installation of electrical conduits has begun, starting at the Alder and St. Ann’s intersection. The next steps for the project include preparing to pave the road-

ways of the excavated areas, which involves compacting road’s base and sub base material. “The excellent summer weather has been a big help at keeping close to the project schedule, with a bit of rain keeping the dust to a minimum,” said Mayor Walter Jakeway. “To the general community and specifically the businesses in the area: thank you for your patience and for working around the project so well. As the amount of completed work increases, the new look of the area will start to be apparent, and the benefits of improved infrastructure will last long into the future. Opportunities to complete major upgrades of buried services infrastructure, at key intersections, doesn’t happen often for a busy city.” Current road detours will stay in place until the end of September or early October. It is anticipated that St. Ann’s Road will re-open to traffic in both directions at that time.

Once St. Ann’s is re-opened, Alder Street (between St. Ann’s and 10th Avenue) will then close to traffic for work on the second phase of the project. “The goal of ‘swapped’ road closures is to ensure there is manageable traffic flow into the downtown core at all times during the project,” Hartley explained. “To date this has been achieved by routing St. Ann’s traffic onto Alder.” The second phase closure (Alder Street) is anticipated to go into late November, with completion of road surface restoration and final landscaping anticipated to carry on into the new year. A detailed map of the new detours will be posted in local newspapers and on the City website. For full project details, visit the Downtown Revitalization project pages under Capital Projects on the City’s website (www.campbellriver. ca).

Popular Haig-Brown Festival set for Sunday, Sept. 29

This year the Haig-Brown Festival will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29, from noon to 4 p.m. The festival is held each year on World Rivers Day at the Haig-Brown House property at 2250 Campbell River Rd (on the Gold River Hwy). “The festival is a great family event with lots to see and do. If you’ve never been to the Haig-Brown property, the festival offers a great chance to explore the house and the grounds, and to find out more about some of our local community groups that work to fulfill the Haig-Browns’ legacy,” says festival organizer Cynthia Bendickson. The festival explores the themes of fishing, literature and conservation, with the addition of outdoor recreation and safety, and recognition is also given to Ann (Elmore) Haig-Brown who assisted vulnerable women.

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 We need to step up and help out Our community has received a cry for help from those people who will be there for every one of us during our darkest hour. We need to build a house for hospice. Or, someone needs to donate a house and we need to pay for the necessary renovations. It is as simple as that. And yes, it is simple, only because of our track record in Campbell River. When there is a cause, we give, and give some more. We are the gold standard for philanthropy. We are all going to die, some of us sooner than others. And all of us want that time to be peaceful, free of pain, dignified, and to be surrounded by those we love and feel safe with. Hospice staff members help manage pain and symptoms and provide emotional and spiritual support so patients and their caregivers can make the most of each day. Death does not have to be depressing, sad or scary. But without bricks and mortar, how can end-of-life care work? Without one single designated hospice bed in the new hospital, our small town needs to come together to meet the needs of those community members who are passing away. The Vancouver Island Health Authority has a responsibility to contribute to hospice palliative and end-of-life care services, and they do. The problem is the inequality of funding between Victoria and the other nine hospices on the island. Victoria Hospice receives roughly half of its funding from VIHA, about $3 million a year. VIHA recently announced a new contract for that hospice, over seven years approximately $20 million. Every other hospice on the Island got one time funding of $11,700 each in the 2010/11 fiscal year for a total of $105,300. There is something wrong with this picture. The wheels of government move slowly. Campbell River cannot wait for an epiphany from VIHA that our community members need a Hospice just as much as those who live in the Capital. We need to roll up our sleeves and get this done. Some people do not have a lot of time to wait. Poll: What’s your favourite football league to watch, CFL or NFL? Vote at www.courierislander.com

From our readers

Referendum needed for the $15 million borrowing bylaws I am writing this letter expressing my profound disagreement with City Council’s adoption of the borrowing bylaws (totaling $15 million) without going to referendum. I, for one, want a voice in how the City decides to spend taxpayer’s money. Every elector in this city should have the opportunity to mark a ballot expressing their wishes in this matter, rather than letting Council only make the decisions. An elector has to be 18 years of age or older, a Canadian citizen, lived in BC for six months and lived in the City of Campbell River for 30 days before sign-

ing the forms. To that end I am encouraging all electors in the City to get the forms (two for each person - one for each bylaw) complete them and get them delivered to City Hall not later than Sept. 23, 2013 at 4:30 p.m. In fact have them delivered earlier than that if you possibly can. If anyone requires forms I will provide them and have them delivered to City Hall for you. Just call me at 250-203-1741, and if busy leave a message, and I will arrange to have forms provided and delivered for you. Darlene Wood

of a chimpanzee, a baby’s heartbeat, a mother’s kiss, and a burst of belly laughter. Also, the music of Bach and Mozart. Plus Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny Be Good’. It was a galactic leap of faith. When Voyager 2 launched, the planet was knotted in a Cold War, famine and disease stalked huge swathes of Asia and Africa. A spectre called Aids was just beginning to cast its shadow. The world, as it usually is, was a mess. But out of the chaos, this: a cry to the universe that says: We’re good. We can do beautiful things. We matter. Carl Sagan, who helped choose the sound bites on the golden disc, said “The launching of this bottle into the cosmic ocean says something very hopeful about life on this planet.” Indeed it does. It’s a message any Canadian voyageur would understand in his bones.

A Legion full of poppies to Marlene Wocks for her dedication and commitment to the Royal Canadian Legion Br. #137. You did not deserve to be publicly bullied and humiliated in front of your fellow comrades. Let us just say, we resoundingly appreciate you and your efforts to keep our Legion viable. Your Comrades So we’re out walking one night, down the Mac’s Alder hill. Nice night, people out and this young lad and his little white dog are walking toward us. He sees us, walks off the sidewalk taking his dog with him, who he makes sit down on the shoulder while we pass. So considerate. Your mom and dad should be proud of the way they brought you up, and the way you chose to handle yourself. Nice to see :) A large fast food meal of Thorns to the old lady (and her bystander daughter) who decided the evening of Sept. 2 was a great day to harass and bully my sister at work. You came up to my sister, completely unprovoked, and told her she (and “everyone in Campbell River”) looked miserable. You made your order, and sniggered at her from the sidelines, like some high school gossiper, because she was concentrating on filling all of the orders and was stressed out. You called her names and yelled and screamed and embarrassed not only her, but yourself as well. You took advantage of the new girl at work. You knew that because you are older and not the one currently working, she would feel afraid to say something. Well I am not!! Nobody forced you to move here, lady. And you may feel entitled to it, but you have NO right to treat my sister or any fast-food worker with such disrespect. You are a BULLY and you are cruel and if anyone is the miserable one...it is YOU! You should feel ashamed of yourself. I hope Campbell River displeases you in EVERY way so that you are driven out of this town — goodness knows I do not want you here, and neither does anybody who witnessed your harassment, browbeating, and absolutely repulsive behaviour. You won’t last long here if that’s

how you mean to treat the community members. And if someday we meet, Ill have even more of a mouthful of thorns to fling your way. Not Happy A tire full of thorns to the grumpy man with the convertible white porsche. I don’t know if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed or if this is normally how you treat people. Standing in line with my one year old and four year old boys, you started yelling at me about how I cut in line. If you had eyes in the back of your head (joking) maybe you would have seen it from a different view. I did not intentionally go in front of you in the line up. I apologized and in return I got a grumpy old guy yelling at me in front of my boys. I composed myself and asked, “sir, you do not have to be so rude to me”, in return you yell back, “I’M NOT THE ONE BEING RUDE!!”. If you ask anyone in that store at that time, they would beg to differ. Also thorns to the two cashiers who just stood there not saying anything. I was so upset when he left, I started getting tears in my eyes, still you ignored the situation. As a mom I try and teach my boys how to respect and be kind to people. I hope that you read this and realize that even the little choices that you make in life make a difference. What were you thinking Roses to Campbell River’s Downtown BIA! Thank you for Campbell River’s newest attraction; the HUGE frame at Robert Ostler Park. Kim Brown We would like to send a bambi-bucket full of roses to Ed and Vicki of E&B Helicopters. They were so accommodating to take our cousin, from South Africa, up for a ride and an eagle’s eye view of beautiful Campbell River. Ed, you make a great tour guide and have helped give Sandra a holiday she will never forget. Thanks so much. The Wilson Family Thorns to the bus driver on the Alder 3 p.m. route who gave no help to three elderly passengers, includ-

ing a wheelchair, oxygen bound handicapped lady. This slack of compassion included not even securing her wheelchair (which skidded across the bus when a turn was made). No help whatsoever. Shame, shame, shame. A very embarrassed CR resident The Nunns Creek Stewards would like to thank Rob Kaiser of Innovating Plant Products for donating the use of his excavator and Dan Obzera, highly skilled operator, of Hard Rock and Road Inc. for donating time on Aug. 25 to clear a log jam in Nunns Creek. Nunns Creek is a wild coho and chum creek. It also supports fry from the Quinsam Hatchery. The Nunns Creek Stewards began a project of installing large woody debris sites in the creek, starting in 2002, to increase spawning habitat. Because of climate change (wetter winters) and development (loss of wetlands and stream vegetation coverage) flash floods are now a concern. Thank you also to Barry Peters, former DFO Community Advisor, for organizing the clean up. Please support those who support our creeks. Sylvia Jago To the person in a certain trailer park who used a weed eater on my cat. Have you any concept of the agony you caused that animal??? Of course you do because that’s what you intended, you jerk! The cat was on your lot, right? I guess you don’t own a water hose, just a weed eater. A water hose will

Inflatable boat full of roses to Colleen, Greg and David who rescued my dog from the ocean. What started out as a lovely day for a walk and a quick dip in the water for my nine year old lab, Maya, turned into a terrifying experience as she swam further and further out into the ocean. First on the scene to offer assistance was Colleen who offered to run home and come back with family and a canoe. Some passers by offered to call the police, which I did eventually and was advised that the canoe offered by Colleen was my best hope. Before Colleen could make it back, two men named Greg and David sprung into action. They had been watching the events unfold from their home and brought their inflatable motorized boat out to rescue my dog. According to Brian, Maya was chasing seals. I apologize profusely to all for not being a more responsible dog owner and I am so thankful that the right people were there to rescue Maya, thus saving me from a lot of heartache. They dropped what they were doing to rescue a dog for a stranger. Words cannot express my gratitude to all of you. Brooke De Maiffe

REVIEW COMMITTEE REPORT – AUGUST 2013 Waste Management Permit PE-07008 was issued December 23, 1987, to the company presently known as Quinsam Coal Corporation (QCC) for discharge of effluent to the environment. The permit specifies environmental conditions and establishes the Environmental Technical Review Committee (ETRC) to co-ordinate an annual review of monitoring results. This committee is composed of technical representatives from the Ministry of Environment (MOE); the Ministry of Energy and Mines; the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans; Environment Canada; the City of Campbell River; and QCC. The committee reviews all monitoring data for the mine site and reports to the public. This notice reports on the twenty-forth Annual Report covering the period from April 2011 to March 2012. Delays in publication of this notice are in due in part to the timing of the ETRC meeting in December 2012, and subsequent public meeting in March 2013. There were no exceedances of the maximum permitted effluent discharge quantity limits during this reporting period. The maximum permitted concentration of total suspended solids was exceeded on five occasions at the discharges of Settling Pond 1 and 4. These were attributed to heavy rainfall and sampling error. Improvements to the sampling method were made to reduce future sampling error. There were no other exceedances of the maximum permitted effluent discharge quality limits during this reporting period.

A number of receiving environment sulphate samples exceeded the provincial sulphate guideline, which was 100 mg/L during the reporting period. In Long Lake, sulphate concentrations were comparable to past years’ results, with a maximum of 79 mg/L at the surface of the lake and a maximum of 160 mg/L in deeper waters. Reduction in sulphate levels is one of the main goals of the Long Lake Seep treatment system.

In Middle Quinsam Lake, the maximum sulphate concentration was 170 mg/L at the lake bottom. Sulphate levels were below the provincial guidelines at all other depths in Middle Quinsam Lake. Sulphate levels at the outlet of Middle Quinsam Lake continued to be well below the provincial sulphate guideline.

In addition to the work done by QCC, the Canadian Water Network and MOE continue to evaluate the current extent, background levels, sources and risks of contaminants of concern in Long Lake sediment. It is the opinion of the Environmental Technical Review Committee that water quality in Middle Quinsam Lake and the Quinsam River remains good. Although outside the reporting period, it is notable that QCC’s effluent permit was amended in January 2013. The amendment allows discharge from QCC’s 7-South operation and includes environmental protection requirements. The discharge enters the Quinsam River via an ephemeral stream and wetland. Monitoring is ongoing in this area and results will be included in subsequent reports.

QCC conducted a comparison of metal and metalloid concentrations in the receiving environment with the Provincial Water Quality Guidelines (WQG). Arsenic, iron and manganese concentrations were all found to be within the WQG. Elevated levels of cadmium and mercury were found at some stream and lake sample locations. MOE requested QCC to retain a qualified professional to evaluate current and historic cadmium and mercury levels in the receiving environment.

BC SPCA wildlife photo contest deadline Sept. 30

Martin Smart, won first place in the Backyard Habitats category in last year’s contest.

If you’re an amateur photographer with an eye for wildlife, don’t miss out on your chance to see your best photo featured in the BC SPCA’s Fifth Annual Wildlife-InFocus Photography Contest. Digital photos are being accepted until Sept. 30 in the contest, which raises funds for the society’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC) on southern Vancouver Island, where more than 2,500 orphaned and injured wild animals are cared for every year. “With the nation’s greatest diversity of wildlife in our own province, we are excited to help backyard and amateur photographers showcase these amazing animals,” says Sara Dubois, manager of wildlife services for the BC SPCA. Some of the photos entered in previous contests have been featured in the BC SPCA’s AnimalSense and Bark! magazines, local newspapers and even a book City Critters: Wildlife in the Urban Jungle, authored by local journalist Nicholas Read. Dubois notes, “It’s a testament to the calibre of photos that are entered.” Prizes will be awarded for the top three photos in each of two categories: Wild Settings and Backyard Habitats.

The contest is open to all adult (age 14 years and up) backyard and amateur photographers residing in BC. Learn more about this year’s contest and see winners from past contests at spca.bc.ca/wildlife-infocus. The annual contest encourages participants to explore greenspaces, roadsides, beaches and even backyards to find striking images that represent the resiliency of local wildlife living at the interface with humans. Wildlife includes free-living birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish and insects, but not exotic, feral or domestic animals, or wildlife in zoos or rehabilitation facilities.

Next local builders Lunch ‘n’ Learn focuses in on water The City of Campbell River’s next one-hour lunch ’n’ learn session for local builders and developers will focus on water Wednesday, Sept. 18. The City of Campbell River provides safe drinking water within City boundaries and by contract to some neighbouring areas. “A vital component of delivering high quality drinking water is the cross connection and backflow prevention program,” says Nathalie Viau, the City’s utilities project supervisor. Forum participants will meet the City’s Utilities Project Supervisor and discuss how

to keep contaminants out of the water supply system through cross connections and backflow (reversal of water flow) prevention as well as ways to avoid water quality problems. Local industry professionals interested in attending are reminded to bring their own brown bag lunch. Please note these forums are now held on a quarterly basis. The forum will take place at noon, Wednesday, Sept. 18 in the committee room at City Hall – please note the venue change for this one event. Seating is limited to 16 attendees.

The Campbell River Arts Council, the HaigBrown Institute, the Museum at Campbell River and School District 72 are partnering this year to present the 2013 Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture. The lecture will take place on Saturday evening, Sept. 28, from 6:308:30 p.m., at the newly renovated Rivercity Stage Theatre, 1080 Hemlock Street in Campbell River. This year’s lecture, entitled “Land For The People: A New Environmental Photo submitted Language Author Harold Rhenisch for British Columbia”, will be delivered by noted Canadian author Harold Rhenisch. Rhenisch wrote ‘Motherstone: British Columbia’s Volcanic Plateau’ and edited ‘Spirit in the Grass’ with the photographer Chris Harris. Along with these two large format environmental photographic books about Central British Columbia, he is the author of ‘Winging Home’, an ecological book about British Columbia birds. Rhenisch has written 25 other books of history, literature and poetry. For 22 months, he has been working on two environmental projects: one about the salmon of the Okanagan and their

link to the Manhattan Project, and one about developing new green technologies to harness the power of earth and sun to capture, store and move energy. His research and photographs for those projects are documented on his blog, www.okanaganokanogan.com. From 2007 to 2011 he lived in Campbell River, where he wrote a play about Roderick Haig-Brown, and started the Roderick Haig-Brown Memorial Lectures working with Ken Blackburn of the Arts Council. The Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture Series was created by the Arts Council in 2009. The intention is to honour the legacy of both Roderick Haig-Brown and Ann Haig-Brown (nee Elmore). Roderick Haig-Brown (19081976) applied his passion equally to fishing, writing, conservation, and public service and left behind a strong legacy of literary excellence, centered on the rivers of British Columbia. His work represented an early environmental voice. Ann Elmore was a major force for social justice issues in Campbell River, notably around the challenges facing women. The Ann Elmore Transition House is named in her honour. The Haig-Brown Memorial Lectures were created to provide an annual forum for writers to inspire a new generation with their vision for the environment, social issues and literary excellence. A signed and numbered collectable chapbook of the 2013 Lecture has been produced and will be available at the Rivercity Stage Theatre. Call the Arts Council at 250923-0213 to reserve a seat for this historic event. The cost for the Lecture is $10. All proceeds go to support the Memorial Lecture.

Lettuce Grow Workshops

‘Tis the season for saving seeds Interested in saving your own seeds for next year’s garden? Learn how at the next Lettuce Grow Workshop Sunday, Sept. 15. “How to Save Your Own Veggie Seeds” will be led by Robin Sturley, co-founder of Edible Earth Seeds, from 10 a.m. to noon, Sunday at North Island College. The workshop will cover all the basics of saving high-quality vegetable seeds including tips and tricks and a chance to try winnowing, screening and decanting seed cleaning techniques. Participants will also take home regionallyadapted seeds for next year’s garden.

“This workshop will teach people how to save seeds to grow the same vegetable variety next year that’s just as delicious,” says Kira DeSorcy, Lettuce Grow lead instructor. “Say yes to nurturing that heirloom variety of squash!” Not all seeds produce healthy offspring, DeSorcy warns. “Many hybrids and genetically-modified plants do not yield viable seeds, so people who want to save seeds from their vegetables for the next year should only buy open pollinated seeds,” DeSorcy adds. “Edible Earth Seeds will teach people about saving vibrant, untreated, regionally-adapted seeds through organic tech-

niques for seed saving used in the Cowichan Valley,” says Sturley. “We are committed to ensuring bio-regional food sovereignty through the stewardship of heirloom and traditional vegetable, herb and flower varieties.” For more information, or to register for a Lettuce Grow workshop, please visit http://www.nic. bc.ca/continuingeducation/ and search for GENI 7937 or visit your local campus.

Zentangle classes in Campbell River At right, Barb Round, Certified Zentangle Teacher, shows off a couple of samples she has made for her upcoming classes in Campbell River and Courtenay in September and October. Class 1: Introduction to Zentangle Class is followed by Classes 2 and 3, which take students beyond the basics. Students may sign up for one or all three. In addition, Barb has developed a new class, “ZIA Gardens” which will debut at Sybil Andrews Cottage on Sept. 28. So...what exactly is Zentangle? This new art form can be mastered by both children and adults and used for simple decoration or complex art pieces. Requiring only a good fine-tip black pen, a soft lead pencil and a small “tile” of quality paper, Zentangle does not require a huge investment in supplies, and can be done anywhere (on the ferry, or waiting for an appointment). Developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, Zentangle consists of a series of simple steps, forming complex-looking patterns. Zentangle has therapeutic value as well. Drawings are created using structured designs in repetitive patterns, a very absorbing process which

takes your complete focus, creating a sense of calm...hence the “Zen” part of the name. It has been found to be very helpful with eye-hand coordination, improving concentration skills and provides stress relief. For more information contact Barb at 250-923-0739 or email: barb. czt@gmail.com. Class registration is online at barbroundczt.weebly.com under the “Classes and Events”.

Revamped Tidemark Theatre features new ticketing system The Tidemark Theatre re-opened on Aug. 27 after the annual summer shutdown, showcasing a renovated Box Office and a brand new ticketing system. These improvements to the facility are part of the T25 Capital Upgrade Project. The project, which features the modernization of the existing historical Tidemark Theatre with new seating, state-of-the-art computerized lighting, in house projection equipment, monitor system, and an online ticketing system, is funded by the City of Campbell River ($250,000), Island Coastal Sustainability Trust

($153,000), Coast Sustainability Trust ($153,000), and the Tidemark Theatre’s own fundraising efforts, which have raised just over $125,000 since the start of the T25 Capital Campaign in January 2012. The total budget for the T25 Capital Upgrade Project is estimated to be just over $600,000. In January 2013, the Tidemark Theatre installed a brand new in house projection system, featuring a state-of-the-art projector and screen. Over the past month, the Tidemark Theatre’s new ticketing system, Theatre Manager, was installed and the Box Office was completely renovated. The new ticketing system will help the facility better serve their patrons. Previously, the theatre had a paper-based system for selling tickets. With the installation of the new ticketing

Campbell River’s Tyler Miller, 11, runs a drill at the rugby 7s youth clinic.

Lucky seven learn from the world’s best 7s players Seven Campbell River Athletics youth rugby players had the chance to learn from two of the world’s best rugby 7s players, England’s Ben Gollings, and Fiji’s Waisale Serevi, at a youth clinic last weekend at the University of Victoria, in conjunction with the Victoria International 7s Tournament. They were put through their paces with three hours of high-tempo drills that emphasized quick decision making, communication, fitness, and

The lucky seven Riverites making the trip to Victoria included Kyle Watson, 11, Tyler Miller, 11, Henry Young, 10, Nolan Young, 13, Gloria Figueroa, 17, Georgia Bellamy, 16 and Haley Wingert, 11. “This was a great way to kick-start our season,” says Campbell River club president Erin Young. “We are very lucky to live and play rugby here on the Island where exposure to high level coaches and players like these

The Campbell River Storm held the Wolves at bay for 58 minutes and 30 seconds Wednesday night at Westshore. But then the Wolves went wild, scoring three goals in the final 1:30, and then the winner 32 seconds into overtime, for a bizarre 6-5 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League OT victory over the Storm. The game was all but in the win column when Josiah Friesen gave the Storm a 5-2 led at the 18:09 mark of the third period. But then the Wolves found their offensive bite with two straight goals from Brett Lervold, the first at 18:30 and the second at 19:03. Westshore then tied the game, and sent it into OT, on a Trevor Parkhouse tally with just three ticks left on the clock. Besides the defensive lapse in blowing the three goal lead, the Storm ran into a red hot Wolves netminder in Matt Chester. The Storm fired 21 shots Chester’s way after the first period, but trailed 1-0. The Storm then solved Chester in the second period, but they had to up their shot count to an amazing 31 which amounted to four Campbell River goals and a 4-1 lead heading into the final period. Final shot totals ended up 70-31 in the Storm’s favour. With the OT loss, the single point moved the 2-1-1 Storm into first place in the North Division, one point up on Nanaimo. The Storm start a home doubleheader tonight at Rod Brind’Amour Arena when they take on the Kerry Park Islanders. Saturday the Storm host the Saanich Braves. Game time for both games is 7:30 p.m. Campbell River was once again led offensively by their ‘twin tower’ connection of 6’2” Brendan DeVries and 6’3” Brayden Taekema. DeVries scored twice and added an assist, while Taekema chipped in with a goal and a helper. Both players now have eight points, on five goals and three assists each, in the Storm’s four games. Colin Blake had the other Campbell River goal, plus he collected an assist for a two point outing. Tyson Smith had a pair of assists, single helpers went to Jordan Kamprath and Keenan Grant.

Sequoia ladies results The Sequoia Ladies Club took to the links Tuesday, Sept. 3 for a game called circle nine. Each player picks their favorite nine holes, counts that score, minus half their handicap. The winner was Grace Schmidt with an amazing net 23. Runner up was Arlene Robinson with a net 34, followed by Claire Brown and Betty Smith with a 34.5 each. This past Tuesday the club held its annual Roadrunner Tournament. On every second hole was a different fun

thing to do like teeing off and playing the hole with a nine iron or teeing off with a child’s driver etc. The winning team of Brown, Marilyn Liebel, Jackie Winspear and Karen Todoruk came in with a 74. Runners up was the team of Smith, Linda Ciochetti, Johnna Dodd and Vanessa Sjostrom with 79. Closest to the Roadrunner on No. 3 was Dodd. A potluck lunch, hosted by Chris Jones at her pond-side home, was enjoyed by all.

NIC exhib starts Sept. 20 Art lovers – mark your calendars for Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:20 p.m. for the grand opening of the North Island College Faculty Exhibition at the Campbell River Art Gallery. This group exhibition features work created by 10 Fine Arts faculty members from North Island College. Working in a range of media from painting to video, this exhibition provides the opportunity for these talented artists to exhibit current work and projects never before seen in Campbell River. Sponsored by CR Fitness, this exhibition will encompass both the Main and Discovery Galleries, allowing space for each artist to exhibit work they are excited about. The Discovery Gallery will be transformed into a screening room to showcase the video projections of two faculty

members. Other art forms included in the exhibition are: photography, printmaking, painting, sculpture, and ceramics. As accomplished artists who focus a majority of the academic year on fostering their students’ artwork, the opportunity to exhibit their own creations has sparked creativity and empowered these faculty members to take chances within their respective medium. Don’t miss the opportunity to see cutting edge artwork from NIC’s talented Fine Arts Faculty. Everyone is welcome at an opening reception for the NIC Faculty show on Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:20 p.m. For more information, contact the Campbell River Art Gallery at 250287-2261 or curator@crartgallery. ca.

Keeping Learning Safe It’s that time of year again… when we’re setting the tone for the year ahead. Will it be, here we go again, what a grind? Will it be anxious and fearful? Or will it be positive and optimistic? As children and teens head back to school, I’ve heard comments like, “I can’t wait to start school,” “I’m excited about all I’m going to learn this year,” and “I’m really looking forward to band because this year I get to play percussion.” Children and teens naturally look forward to new learning, new possibilities, re-connecting with friends and making new friends. Our job as parents is to encourage and support them. The main questions I’m hearing from parents are about how to do that, in a world of social media.

Professional Counselling

encouraging, our child’s and teen’s passions, is one thing we can do especially this time of year. We have the opportunity to join with them in their enthusiasm for learning, while keeping them safe and, of course, teaching them the discipline that they’ll need to be successful as well. This is a good time of year to re-focus on all our relationships, to be proactive in creating the kind of relationship, and the kind of family, we want. What will we do together this fall to celebrate and appreciate each other? What can I do or say today, to make sure that each member of my family knows he or she is loved?

Help shape downtown visioning workshop This fall, the City of Campbell River will host an intensive visioning and design charrette to develop a community-supported concept for vacant land on the waterfront near Roberts Reach Road. This exercise will fine-tune the community vision for this area that was established through the Sustainable Official Community Plan process. In preparation for the charrette, members of the public are invited to share their ideas for this area at an open house / workshop. Ideas gathered during the pre-charrette sessions will help structure the charrette led by a consulting team later this fall. Join us: 7 to 8:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 18 – Room 2, Campbell River Community Centre 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., Thursday, September 19 – Room 2, Campbell River Community Centre A charrette is a collaborative design and planning session that combines the interests of a diverse group of people to achieve a viable land use and urban design concept. The charrette later this fall will also offer opportunities for additional public education and input. Questions?
