City gets green light for borrowing By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander

MASKED MAN HELPS WOLVES WIN Howe Sound tried just about everything to stop the Campbell River Timberline Wolves from scoring Saturday at Timberline field. This Howe Sound defender tried a little face masking, but to no avail. Campbell River won 12-0. See more on page 25.

The City of Campbell River has the go ahead to borrow up to $15 million needed for water and sewer upgrades. Under what is called the Alternate Approval Process, 10 per cent of the city’s 24,010 electors would have had to file their objection to force the borrowing to a referendum. The deadline for that submission was Sept. 23. The AAP involved two borrowing bylaws, one for water and one for sewer. But of the needed 2,401 objections, only 751 were received against borrowing for the water work and 743 voted against the sewer upgrades. The city has maintained all along that this doesn’t mean they will go out and borrow the money right away. The loan authorization is like a pre-approved mortgage that allows them to shop around and take advantage of matching grant monies from other sources. It allows them to be flexible and move quickly to maximize the value of the money they borrow. “On the basis of the elector response forms received, I have determined and hereby certify that elector approval in accordance with Section 86 of the Community Charter has been obtained,” wrote City Clerk Peter Wipper in a report to council Tuesday night. “Council may therefore proceed with the adoption of Loan Authorization Bylaws 3518 and 3519.” ncameron@courierislander.com

CAMPBELL RIVER COURIER-ISLANDER

A new idea for helping the homeless By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Paul Mason wants to give Campbell River something to be proud of. The Program Manager for Campbell River Housing Resource Centre said it is known as “Cargotecture”, retrofitted shipping containers that provide safe and dignified lodgings to replace the cardboard boxes, wet tents, and dirty blankets homeless people use to sleep outdoors. Those blankets and cardboard boxes do not protect these vulnerable people when the storms and cold weather hit Campbell River, said Mason. In 2011 two people who went to sleep outside, in the cold wind and snow, perished. Mason says that these temporary homeless relief shelters, a 40-foot shipping container to provide up to 16 homeless people with a temporary roof over their heads on any given winter night, are heated, lit, have reading lamps, smoke detectors, a handicapped accessible washroom, hot water, with two beds in each, an office for two highly trained and caring staff, and would be open from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. to keep people alive. They can bring their belongings, their shopping carts, even their dog. When they leave in the morning they can go over to Radiant Life Church where breakfast is on at 6:30 a.m. “It has not been done anywhere on the Island,” said Mason, who has a long local history of working with the most vulnerable members of the community. “This is a safe low barrier shelter, centrally located, mobile, and a temporary measure for the winter. We have already had a pretty bad storm and without an extreme weather shelter which would normally be opening around now, the need is immediate.” This year there is no extreme weather shelter at the Lighthouse as in past years. In the past it provided mats and shelter for about 14 people from October to March. “The only shelter is Evergreen, it is out of the town centre, quite the jaunt for someone who is cold, hungry and tired, and not open to anyone with addictions,” said Mason. “They have a zero tolerance policy. So when the police find someone sleeping or passed out in the cold, they bring them to the hospital where they are assesessed. That has to cost about $1,000, then they either go to Evergreen if they are not using, or to cells which costs more money and more police time off the road doing what they should be doing. Well, with this pilot project they can come straight to us instead of going to cells and tying up the RCMP time and funds. “This can be a feather in the cap for Campbell River and as a pilot project, the money will come from BC Housing through the CR Housing Resource Centre. It won’t cost Campbell River taxpayers anything while we showcase this safe shelter.” Shadow Lines Transportation Group of Langley is the company behind this idea, and has a unit ready to go. This same unit was used to house people who lost homes to the flooding in Hay River, Alberta earlier this year. The concept is being tried in Chilliwack by the Salvation Army. The doors don’t lock, but the shelter is surrounded by a six-foot high fence with a locking gate that is reportedly set up in 15 minutes. There are no in-and-out privileges, The shelter is designed to be delivered every evening, picked up at dawn, pressure washed, disinfected and recharged, and then returned to the compound again the next day. Mason says what they need now is public support. “Write to the paper, call the mayor, tell council that we must get this now or people will die,” he said. “Instead of hiding these people, come out and be generous as Campbell River is known for. We can’t not have this, until we figure out a permanent solution.” sthomson@courierislander.com

The ‘Cargotecture’ idea to house the homeless on cold winter nights is shown at left. The portable unit has basic accommodations, heat and water and can be moved at a moment’s notice.

Rivercorp CEO Vic Goodman, left, is taking some heat from local tourism operators, especially Jim DeHart, right, after Goodman said Campbell River tourism was ‘languishing.’

‘Languishing’ remark gets Rivercorp CEO sharp rebuke from tourism sectors By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander The Executive Director of BC River Outfitters Association and the President of the Wilderness Tourism Association of BC has said Campbell River’s economic development arm has done little to help tourism in the area. Jim DeHart was responding to Rivercorp’s CEO Vic Goodman’s statement that Campbell River’s tourism sector was “languishing”. A sector that comes under the Rivercorp arm. DeHart wrote that “in fact the sector has been very active in directly promoting and attracting visitors to the Campbell River area” and that “perhaps the only component of the tourism sector in Campbell River that is ‘languishing’ and needs to work on ways to collaborate with the tourism sector is Rivercorp itself.” DeHart’s stinging criticisms continued. “Rivercorp has provided little if any leader-

ship or direction in the tourism sector for approximately 10 years now, DeHart wrote. “The Visitor Information Centre staff and one tourism development staff member work very hard and are appreciated by the tourism section, but they are handcuffed by the minimal support received from Rivercorp.” DeHart said Campbell River and area tourism operators have accomplished a lot of great things, despite not getting Rivercorp’s support. “We have a number of tourism operations in Campbell River that are recognized for their unique, high quality tourism products,” wrote DeHart. “Operations like Knight Inlet Lodge, Strathcona Park Lodge, Destiny River Adventures, Campbell River Whale Watching, Eagle Eye Adventures, Discovery Marine Safaris and Spirit of the West Adventures have garnered significant regional, national and international media attention for Campbell River and continue to use Campbell River as their base of operations. This results in significant investment and spending in our community as well as helping Campbell River businesses that provide direct services (accommodations, food and support services) to their guests pre and post tour. “These and other tourism operators have promoted the area without the support of an effective tourism organization in Campbell River. They have come up with collaborate ways to jointly promote our area on the global scene directly.” ncameron@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 Disrespectful to taxpayers It is a question of accountability and neither the provincial or federal government has any. This has nothing to do with their policies or performance, but it has all to do with phoning in sick and telling us their dog ate their homework. Both the federal and provincial governments have cancelled yet more sittings of their respective legislatures. Both governments give feeble excuses for doing so. Feeble excuses, or lies, whatever. They are becoming akin to the person who erroneously phones in sick or the school student who comes up with excuses for not doing their homework. They are using parliamentary rules designed for important situations as a tool to avoid facing tough questions and criticisms. They effectively quiet the opposition and become semi dictators in doing so. Taxpayers deserve better. If governments continue to cancel their sittings, they should be held financially accountable and not accept their salaries for the time that is missed. It’s frustrating enough to see them sitting on their thumbs, it’s worse when they also thumb their noses at the taxpayer. Previous poll question: Do you think back country enthusiasts take search and rescue for granted? 13% said yes, 18% said no, 41% said they should pay part of the costs of the search and 29% said some of them are just as dumb as a sack of hammers. New poll: Should governments be allowed to cancel sittings of their respective legislatures? Vote at www.courierislander.com

Valuable lessons for younger anglers By Neil Cameron A few weeks ago before the coho fishing died off I happened upon the beach and saw through my binoculars my young friend Andrew Derton who was fast into a nice fish. It took me about five minutes before I elbowed in beside him. I took a few casts and noticed two coho follow my fly in as I retrieved it, but they didn’t take. I pulled my line in and got out my nail clippers. “You changing flies already?” Andrew asked. “Nope,” I said, “Just trimming it.” The ‘trimming’ was actually cutting the tail off the fly that Andrew’s cousin Brent had tied for me. Andrew joked about how Brent would be a little ticked off and then I cast. Immediately a nice coho took and started taking line. I let what loose fly line I had beside me go out and then expected to hear my reel screeching as the coho took off again. But the only sound my reel made was “glub, glub, glub.” It had come off and I could see it down beside my foot in about three feet of water. “That’s interesting,” said Andrew. Without thinking I ducked in the water and grabbed the reel. The coho was taking line again and this time I had the rod in one hand and the reel in the other and line was peeling off the reel. During

tried. And then there was a larger clearing in that mess. My fly landed and on the third pull, a nice coho took it and exploded out of the water. Unfortunately so did about 60 pounds of kelp on my line. Andrew cleaned it off for me and the fish was still on. But then weed started to accumulate and near the end of the fight I could see the coho within arms reach, but my line was enmeshed in kelp and weed. Not thinking, I pressured back on the rod and “snap”, my $600 fly rod broke in two. “Oh no,” I heard Justin say. “Ouch,” added Andrew. But the release of tension on the fish brought it right into me and after a little wrestling match it, I managed to hold it for the picture you see here. It was nice of Justin to later say, “Well Photo by Andrew Derton the old guy taught us another trick.” The coho, the kelp and the broken rod.

Campbellton gets $10,500 grant CNA A $10,500 grant to the City of Campbell River will provide a funding boost for the Campbellton Neighborhood Association’s plans to improve life for people living and working in the area. The association is gathering comprehensive block-by-block information about things to change and things to preserve in the neighbourhood. The action plan developed by the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association will address specific issues and propose solutions to neighbourhood priorities. “To move this initiative for-

ward Vancouver Island University students, with funding from the Real Estate Foundation, have been engaged to gather information and draft a plan that will ultimately support neighbourhood change,” said Ross Blackwell, the city’s land use services manager. The Foundation’s grant program supports progressive initiatives that address current challenges and plan for the future. “Real Estate Foundation grants are often key for funding important local projects that would otherwise not occur,” Blackwell adds.

The city has been assisting the newly-formed Campbellton Neighbourhood Association over the past 12 months on an ambitious exercise to develop a comprehensive, block-by-block information inventory. Early information collected in this neighbourhood-driven planning process indicates interest in community gardens, walkability, safe common areas and a directed, complimentary mix of residential and businesses to support a sustainable community. “This is a very concrete step in a series towards the develop-

ment of a neighbourhood action plan, a blueprint for change created and supported by the people in the area,” says Campbellton Neighbourhood Association cochair Brian Shaw. “Such positive grass roots efforts remind us of the change a group of committed people can achieve.” The Campbellton Neighbourhood Association is an inclusive group of residents and business owners committed to neighbourhood improvement. The association is headed out of an office on 16th Ave. near Crystal Lanes Bowling Alley.

Additional traffic pattern changes at Campbell River Hospital entrance Site work to prepare for the new $266 million, 95-bed Campbell River Hospital will lead to some traffic disruption around the existing Campbell River Hospital main entrance on 2nd Avenue October 10th and 11th, weather permitting. Please see attached image. On Thursday October 10th, the lane between the east and west parking lots will be closed. During this time, traffic control workers will help motorists enter and exit both parking lots. On Friday October 11th, the lane and the west parking lot will be closed to allow paving of a new Ambulance Access Route around the Sunshine Wellness Centre. Traffic control workers will help motorists enter and exit the east parking lot. This work may lead to brief delays entering and exiting the main entrance parking lot. Please take this into account and allow additional time for your hospital visit. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. Please remember that two new hospital parking lots are now open, offering 140 new parking stalls, off 2nd Avenue just west of Yucalta Lodge, near the Dogwood Street intersection. The new temporary Ambulance Access Route is required because construction of the new hospital next year will block the present ambulance route to and from the present Emergency entrance. Please watch for additional temporary traffic changes in the weeks to come.

taking action By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander It’s action time at Campbellton Neighbourhood Association (CNA) office. After a year of looking at development concerns facing the Campbellton community, the group is pushing forward with the “Stage One Plan” which focuses on traffic and pedestrian issues. Their requests for crosswalk, four-way stops and lighting suggestions are now in the hands of council. “The group has identified several key intersections which pose a risk to both pedestrians and motorists,” said Morgan Ostler, a member of the group. “On the top of the list is the intersection of Hwy. 19 and Peterson Rd. The present combination of a cross-walk and turn lanes at the intersection have created a major hazard. CNA’s proposal to council will include options such as traffic lights, four-way stops, crosswalk flashing lights and a no left-turn in any direction. “The other major intersections in Plan One include 16th and Walmart, 14th and Peterson and 14th and Spruce,” she said. “ Similar options will be proposed for those areas as well. It is expected that council will consider the CNA plan for its 2014 budget.” The Campbellton Neighbourhood Association has the goal of rebuilding the Campbellton area of Campbell River, one of the oldest parts of this community. In recent years, Campbellton has become home to such businesses as Wal-Mart and Home Depot, while still being home to well known locations such as The Quinsam Hotel and the Campbell River Lodge (now the Rivers Inn). An often forgotten part of this rapidly growing community, residents and business owners formed the Campbellton Neighbourhood Association. This Association has been working with the community and the local government to explore ways to improve the area and return it to its former glory and popularity. Businesses and home owners have been working to clean up old properties, encourage business development and inventory all that the neighbourhood has to offer. The association is gathering comprehensive block-by-block information about things to change and things to preserve in the neighbourhood. sthomson@courierislander.com

The North Island Hospital Project (NIHP) community information session went north in September, meeting with stakeholders and community members in Port Alice, Port Hardy and Port McNeill. The next meeting in Campbell River is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Thunderbird Hall, 1420 Weiwaikum Road. The meeting will start with a presentation, followed by a question-and-answer session. Island Health and the North Island Hospitals Project team will be on hand to answer questions and gather input. Since the last information meeting in Campbell River, North Island MLA, Claire Trevena has been pushing for extra beds for the new hospital. In a letter to the Minister of Health, Trevena has suggested using part of the current hospital to provide some extra space. Trevena said she made this suggestion ahead of the final decision on who the successful contractor is, hoping the extra beds could be integrated into the planning process. When the Legislature was sitting in July, Trevena asked the Minister whether he would expand the planned new hospital to allow for 10 extra beds. He indicated that it was unlikely. “There is no question we need our new hospital, but everyone is concerned that it will be overcrowded as soon as it opens its doors,” said Trevena.

This 10 year young, 2887 sq.ft., 3 bed, plus den, 3 bath home is big, beautiful, in a wonderful area of fine homes and looking for a new family to pamper. $469,000 MLS 360942

“And we have very many needs. We desperately need hospice beds in Campbell River; we will always likely need extra space for seniors, there are short term needs which can be met. My suggestion to the Minister is that we retain part of our existing hospital for these and other services. Not all of the existing hospital is old and it makes no sense to tear it down completely if we need the space it provides,” said Trevena. Also, Campbell River Hospice Society is looking for a new home, and in doing so, disclosed that there is not a hospice bed designated for the new hospital. In light of these issues, and less than two months before the contractor is chosen, the question and answer session at the Oct. 22 meeting should prove to be quite informative. sthomson@courierislander.com

CAMPBELL RIVER COURIER-ISLANDER

Local FEATURE BUSINESS Some trees can be pruned in winter Many homeowners may not know that pruning trees in the winter can benefit some trees. Deciduous trees are dormant in winter, so they won’t bleed sap when pruned at this time of year like they will at other times of year. In addition, many varieties of trees are less likely to attract disease or insects if pruned in the winter. Oak trees, for example, emit a strong odor when pruned, and that odor can attract a type of beetle that causes oak wilt. But this type of beetle hibernates in the winter, making this the ideal season to prune oak trees. Before pruning trees, regardless of the time of year, homeowners should learn the types of trees on their property and when the ideal pruning season is for each type of tree. Pruning also may depend on climate, so speak with a local gardening or landscaping professional to determine when is the best time to prune the trees on your property. Once the time has come to prune, keep the following tips in mind to maintain healthy and aesthetically appealing trees. * Remove limbs that appear to be competing for space. Tree limbs that are crossing, rubbing or growing parallel to one another can be pruned. Such limbs may prohibit the growth of nearby limbs. * Remove limbs that are growing in. Some tree limbs may appear to be growing toward the interior of the tree, and these limbs can be pruned. * Remove limbs growing toward the ground. A healthy tree’s limbs will grow outward, not toward the ground. * Remove dead limbs. Dead limbs simply take up space, and a dead limb is not going to grow back come the spring. Dead, broken or diseased limbs should be removed when pruning. * Do not top trees. Tree topping is the removal of large branches and/or trunks from the top of a tree. Topping leaves a tree susceptible to disease and insect infestation, and homeowners who top trees to prevent them from getting any larger should know that topping actually promotes the growth of smaller, weaker branches that eventually grow as tall, if not taller, than the original branches before the tree was topped. Topping also decreases a tree’s life expectancy.

NINE FOR NINE Nine-year-old Josh Marin pulled off quite the feat while fishing the Quinsam River on the weekend. Josh hooked and landed this nine-pound hatchery coho. The annual ‘jack’ fishery opened in the river Oct. 1 and it seems the river has had a lot of angling pressure judging from the cars parked at various access locations.

Lady and the Breadman When I was a kid we had this amazing dog named Lady. She was such an awesome dog, smart and so protective of us kids. If we were tobogganing and screamed in excitement like normal kids, Lady became a red blur in the corner of your eye and gently but firmly, she’d snatch your arm and pull you off the sleigh.

On a typical summer day, if and when the car chose to start, (that’s another story ), we would all pile in for a day at the beach with Mom and all the other wives and children of the Fishermen in Q. Cove.

The day in question happened to be a good day for Betsy, the family car, but a bad day for Ed the Breadman. Mom had left a note on the main door for Ed with the week’s order. To get to our main door, one had to come down a footpath , up a flight of stairs, and through the front porch, which was more like a mud room and Dog’s domain. The problem arose when Lady, left home to guard the family assets, considered the precious note/order for Ed to be equally as valuable as all the other assets. She was no more going to let him take the order back to the truck than she would allow one of her people be snatched. The double cement sinks on the porch, what would have been shoulder-high at the time, turned out to be a great haven for Ed the Breadman. As fortune would have it, his hiding spot from Lady’s law hadn’t been used as a sink in quite some time, and had become a great place to store old newspapers. While we enjoyed two glorious meals at the beach, Lady found herself with plenty to do and Ed caught up on his summer reading. Needless to say, Ed was quite delighted to welcome the family home and say goodbye to Lady the dog. There is a moral to this story...sometimes you’re better off with a sink full of old newspapers than a truck full of fresh bread.

Kitchen fires main theme of Fire Prevention Week This week is Fire Prevention Week. Recent data shows on average, home fires account for 30% of all fires and 73% of all fire deaths causing millions of dollars in property damage in Canada. With these statistics, Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) urges you to be mindful of fire prevention and safety. “The winter season is the worst season for fires in Canada and many of these tragedies can been avoided,” says Bill Adams, Vice-

President, Western & Pacific, IBC. “Canadians should be informed of the simple measures that can be taken to prevent a devastating fire from occurring in their homes. “ This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week is preventing kitchen fires. Kitchen fires due to cooking oil or grease igniting into flames cause the fastest-spreading and most destructive type of residential fire. When cooking with grease or oil, it is very important to plan ahead so you will know

how to react fast to fire. Here are a few kitchen safety tips to remember: Keep a pan lid or cookie sheet handy in case grease or oil catches fire. The lid or cookie sheet should be slid over the top of the pan to smother the fire. Never attempt to move a flaming pot or pan away from the stove. The movement can fan the flames and spread the fire. Don’t leave anything cooking unattended. Turn off the stove

even if you leave the room only for a few seconds. Use a safety approved fryer. Keep your oven clean. Grease and food splatters can ignite at high temperatures. Ensure that you wear oven mitts when removing cooking containers to avoid serious burns. Wear close-fitting clothing that won’t catch on pot handles. Turn pot handles inward to reduce the risk of accidentally overturning the pot and to prevent

children from grabbing it. Do not let children get closer than one meter (three feet) when you are cooking. Pre-planning and maintaining a fire safe environment helps to prevent fires from happening in your home and ensures you are better prepared to handle a fire emergency. An ounce of prevention and education can help save lives, homes and irreplaceable keepsakes.

Fire alarms and a home escape plan are key to safety This Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 6 to 12, your local fire department and your child’s school have teamed up for safety. Some of your children may have been learning about ways to prevent home fires, fire and burn hazards, working smoke alarms and home fire escape planning. The theme this year is “Prevent Kitchen Fires”. Most fatal fires occur in residential settings where people feel safest. \Fire can spread quickly through your home, leaving only precious minutes to escape. Your ability to get out fast depends on advanced warning from smoke alarms and advanced planning — creating a home fire escape plan. Reduce your family’s risk from fire by following the tips below. Smoke Alarms • Make sure everyone in your home can recognise the sound of the smoke alarm and knows exactly what to do when it sounds. • Install working smoke alarms near sleeping areas and on every level of your home. For maximum protection also install smoke alarms in bedrooms. • Smoke alarms should be tested and maintained in accordance

with manufacturer’s instructions. Alarms should be tested once a month by pushing the test button and listening for the alarm. • For battery operated smoke alarms, replace batteries at least once a year or for extended life batteries according to manufacturer’s instructions. Batteries should also be replaced when the smoke alarm makes a chirping sound. • Smoke alarms should be cleaned at least every six months, by gently vacuuming the exterior. • Smoke alarms do wear out and should be replaced at least every 10 years. Home Fire Escape Plans • Create a home fire escape plan showing 2 ways out of every room. Practise your plan with your entire family by having a home fire drill at least twice a year. • Choose a Family Meeting Place a safe distance away from your home. All family members should be taught to report to the family meeting place after leaving the home. Photo by Ken Zaharia • One person should then go to a neighbour’s house or the nearest phone in a safe location to contact Campbell River Fire Chief Ian Baikie talked about fire safety and rescue during an open house at the depar9-1-1 or your local emergency ment. This year Baikei and the fire crews want you to think of them while you’re in your kitchen. Preventing number. kitchen fires is the main theme of Fire Prevention Week.

Duncan announces funding Trevena angry legislature opportunities for seniors is not in session — again By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

Community groups have until Nov. 13 to apply to receive a portion of $2 million in federal funding for programs that address seniors’ social isolation. North Island MP John Duncan announced that approximately 20 pilot projects will be accepted into the New Horizons for Seniors initiative and will be eligible to receive between $50,000 and $100,000 of federal funding over a maximum of 24 months. Duncan said that with Campbell River’s changing demographics, programs like these can be very beneficial. “We have one of the older demographics in the country; the North Island is a retirement destination,” says Duncan. “So, I think if any place knows that there are ways to deal with this it should be locally.” Duncan said he hopes some of these pilot projects will be right here on the Island. Population projections for Campbell River, via BC Stats, estimate that between 2013 and

North Island MLA Claire Trevena is angry and hopes others are too. “It seems, sadly, to be my annual complaint,” she said in her report to the constituency issued on Monday. “Once again it is fall and once again the Legislature is not sitting. The BC Liberals have made a mockery of our parliamentary democracy, calling the Legislature into session at their whim. They have exploited people’s distrust of the political system and effectively said that our Legislature is completely unimportant.” The Liberals announced that they will spend the fall meeting with constituents and ensuring British Columbians get to know Premier Christy Clark’s new cabinet ministers. The legislature will resume sitting in February with a throne speech and the introduction of the budget. “I joined a group of Opposition MLAs on the steps of the Legislature on the day we were supposed to return to do the people’s

business,” said Trevena. “All 34 NDP MLAs would be willing and ready to be in Victoria to ask questions of the government, to debate issues important to the people of BC, to work together on bipartisan committees. This is what we are supposed to do; this is why we were elected. But the Liberal government thinks that 36 days in the House is adequate for accountability this year.” Trevena said that legislators in Manitoba, a province with a quarter the population of BC, will have sat more than three times as long by the end of the year. “The sad irony is that it was the BC Liberals who suggested fixed sessions of the Legislature; that should mean we are working in session in Victoria on behalf of the people of BC for a full six months. I am angry about it and I hope that others, too, are angry. A parliamentary democracy should provide checks and balances. But a political party and a premier that prefer to govern without transparency, without debate, through diktat, are eroding our provincial parliamentary process.” sthomson@courierislander.com

Author to give reading at Coho Books Oct. 15

Journalist Katherine Palmer Gordon has interviewed dozens of First Nations people living in British Columbia since 2004, Her book, We Are Born With the Songs Inside Us: Lives and Stories of First Nations People in British Columbia (Harbour Publishing, $24.95), collects 16 stories gleaned from those interviews. The release of this collection, along with the author and some of the people featured in the book, will take place at a reading and signing at Coho Books (1074 Shoppers Row, Campbell River) at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 15. We Are Born with the Songs Inside Us gathers the thoughts and hopes of young First Nations people living in twenty-first century Canada— artists and community leaders,

comedians and consultants, musicians and lawyers, people who are household names and those known only within their own communities. Among them is Kim Baird, former chief of the Tsawwassen First Nation, who negotiated the Tsawwassen Treaty; Gino Odjick, a former NHL star on the Vancouver Canucks; and Penny White, a marine biologist who works with coastal communities on resource management. Also included is Evan Adams, an actor and medical doctor; John Marston, a worldrenowned artist and storyteller from the Chemainus First Nation; and Tewanee Joseph who was the executive director and CEO of the Four Host First Nations Secretariat for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. These are just a few of

the people profiled in We Are Born with the Songs Inside Us, and a tiny fraction of the many stories of young First Nations people making tremendous contributions to the province. As Shawn A-in-chut Atleo writes in the introduction, “There are thousands upon thousands of young First Nations people growing up today who, together with the kind of individuals whose stories are told in this book, represent a future for this country that is brighter than it has been for a long, long time.” This free event is made possible, in part, with support from the Canada Council for the Arts. For more information about the reading, go to www.harbourpublishing.com or call Coho books at (250) 287-2336.

David Cuddy, eighth from left, at a fund raiser in Kenya for Education is Power. On Saturday, Cuddy will be holding a fund raiser in Campbell River for the cause.

Fund raiser for Africa

On Saturday, Oct.12 at Shot in the Dark Café in Campbell River there will be an incredible line up of local musicians to support Education is Power (EIP). EIP is a small scale African charity that raises tuition fees for Africans studying at African secondary and post-secondary schools whose motto is “Empower one who can empower others”. Shane Philip, Helen Austin and Daisy, Kyell Erickson and Judy and Bruce will all be performing. The night starts at 7 p.m. and continues with an Open Mic and DJ-ing by Marcel Marechal (Manager or Shot In The Dark). EIP is run by David Cuddy, an outdoor instructor at Strathcona Park Lodge since 2005. He founded the organization in 2008 after his experience in the Canada World Youth Program. He continues to run the organization as a volunteer through a network of volunteers and no administration costs. Kenyan and Tanzanian

�� �

students who are selected for funding are volunteers in their community and after receiving funding and attending school, they make visits to primary and high schools to inspire and educate others. EIP has a unique and sustainable 25% payback model where funded students are required to pay 5% of their post-secondary fees back to the organization once they gain suitable employment after graduation. Education is Power has supported 25 students to date and there are many more students on the waiting list in need of funding. Entrance will be by donation and all ages are welcome. The target for the fund raiser is $1,700, which is the same amount it costs for one year of university tuition in Kenya and it is also the amount that was raised at EIP’s fund raiser in Kenya last February. This was an astounding support from locals who contributed greatly in comparison to

their average salary of $1.50 per day in Kenya. Cuddy organized that event with other Kenyans involved in EIP. He will do a talk with pictures and video at the Oct. 12 fund raiser. Cuddy is calling out to teachers in the region to take on the project with their students and support an EIP student while also getting to have skype meetings with that same student they raise money for. He is available to do talks with pictures and videos up until Nov. 10 this year or next spring. To find out more or to donate please visit www. educationispower.org or contact Cuddy at davecuddy@gmail.

The U14 Program is the first level of Alpine Ski Racing for 12-13 year olds. This is the start of their journey as a competitive skier. The U16 Program is for members 14 to 15 years of age who are looking to continue developing their skiing and racing skills. Continued on page 27.

IN MEMORIAM

In Loving Memory of

William (Bill) Dick October 25, 1933 - Oct. 7, 2009

CHAYTOR, Patricia Judith

It is with heavy hearts we wish to announce the passing of our beloved mother, Patricia Judith Chaytor, who has passed away peacefully Monday evening, September 30 in her 72nd year. “Pat” who was known for her devotion to young people and Johnny Depp and famous for her sugar cookies will be dearly missed by her three daughters, Brenda (Tim), Sandra and Carol (Rick), her five precious grandchildren, Jesse, Steven, Kevin, Jon (Sheila) and Sierra and her special joy, her great granddaughter, Adelyn Patricia. She will also be sadly missed by her surviving family and friends, especially her two coffee “dates”, Chris and Evelyn. A celebration of life will be arranged for a later date and in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice.

DAINES - Robert, “Bob” Gordon July 28, 1938 - October 2, 2013

Our world is sadder today as we announce the passing of our husband/Dad. He died peacefully at home on October 2nd. Left to lovingly remember his devotion to family and friends, his sense of humour, and his uncanny ability to find trains wherever he traveled, are his wife of 48 years, Jeanette, son Gordon (Laurie), daughter Sandra, sister Bev, and cherished grandsons Lucas and Zachary. Bob spent much of his life in the Campbell River area, growing up in Camp 5 and attending high school at Carihi. Bob was an entrepreneur involved in the logging industry for most of his career. He enjoyed working in the woods, often coming home with stories of wildlife spotted, and the natural beauty he saw each day. We’d like to thank Dr. Marsh, Dr. Prinsloo, the Home Care Nurses, and the Home Support Team for their kindness, care and support during Bob’s illness. Please join us in a celebration of Bob’s life at the Maritime Heritage Centre on October 18th from 1-4 pm. Donations can be made in Bob’s name to the Campbell River Hospice Society or the Campbell River Museum. Condolences may be left for the family at: campbellriverfunerals.com

Four years have passed since you went away. We will miss you with each passing day. You left us so many wonderful memories to help ease our pain. Your love, laughter filled our hearts with joy. You’re a gift of life always to be cherished, kept close to our hearts, always together and never apart. Happy 80th Birthday All of our love, your family

Debater’s Patterson here Nov. 13 CHURCH SERVICES DIRECTORY

Steve Patterson, the affable host of CBC Radios’s weekly comedy show The Debaters, will be in Campbell River Nov. 13 at the Tidemark Theatre. Patterson will be on the third leg of a national tour with his 90-minute one man show - “This Is Not Debatable!” With his hallmark gift for capturing a funny turn of phrase, he gleefully seizes the opportunity to express opinions he doesn’t get to voice as moderator of The Debaters ... throwing in a couple of original satirical songs to boot. Patterson was named 2013 Male

Stand-Up Comedian of the Year at the Canadian Comedy Awards held this year in Ottawa. The comedy industry has been celebrating their own with annual presentations in a wide variety of categories since 2000. This is the second time in three years Patterson has been recognized as Best Stand-Up. To many it’s no surprise: “one of this country’s sharpest wits” Montreal Gazette; “wickedly funny” - Halifax Chronicle Herald; “Be it resolved that whip-smart Canadian comic Steve Patterson, host of the hilarious CBC radio show The Debaters, is one funny fellow.” Globe and Mail; A client recently asked me about when is it the right For tickets: time to begin teaching kids about money.

When Should you Begin to Teach Kids about Money?

God Is One But Man Is Many

“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3 If God is one, why are there so many different religions and denominations? Perhaps because man is not one, and is born of strife and is indeed strife incarnate. In comparing the Acts of the Apostles and the Quoran, one is struck by a particular similarity. Both say that they are not rejecting their religious predecessors. The seventh chapter of Acts virtually retells the story of the Hebrew Bible in recounting the preaching of Stephen, until Stephen lashes out at his hearers for not accepting the Christian message: “You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit” (Acts 7: 51). In the first section of the Quoran we find a similar summarizing of the Hebrew and the Christian Bible, ending with these words: “The Jews say the Christians are misguided, and the Christians say it is the Jews who are misguided. Yet they both read the Scriptures.” A little later the Quoran has what is almost an ecumenical profession of faith: “We believe in God and that which is revealed to us; in what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the tribes; to Moses and Jesus and the other prophets by their Lord. We make no distinction among any of them, and to God we have surrendered ourselves. We should read the scriptures with an eye for how they unite us rather than divide us from our fellow believers. – Christopher Simon
