A PRODUCT OF THE CAMPBELL RIVER COURIER-ISLANDER AND COMOX VALLEY ECHO

By Grant Warkentin Special to the North Islander

Campbell River’s Carter Johnson was recently chosen as one of the world’s top three young pianists. Carter placed second in the Julia Crane International Piano Competition this fall at the Crane School of Music in New York. On Sept. 22, Carter travelled to New York for the competition, which brought together 12 competitors from as far away as China. Carter was one of four Canadians in the competition. Pianists from around the world sent in their best recordings, but only 12 were chosen to travel to New York. One of them was Carter. Carter practiced all summer — even on the neighbour’s piano while his family vacationed on Gabriola Island — so by the time of the New York competition, he was confident in the repertoire of pieces he had selected. Shortly after arriving, Carter met his competitors. Many of them had already studied at prestigious institutions such as the Juilliard school, one of them for six years. “It was a very warm atmosphere,” he says. “That was encouraging. It’s nice that I was able to meet and befriend lots of my future colleagues.” It was nothing like a reality TV show competition, he laughs. “Everyone here had competed enough that they were comfortable with the competition process,” he says. The competition spanned three days, and included several seminars. On the first day of competition, all 12 pianists performed for the international jury. Six were supposed to be selected to continue on; however, the jurors were so

Round two was the most stressful, Carter says, because the standard of playing was even higher than the first round. However, he played with confidence and was thrilled when he was selected as one of the three finalists. “My technique is to play as many different styles as possible,”

he says, explaining how he had a wide variety of shorter pieces in his repertoire instead of concentrating on a small number of longer pieces. During the final round, each of the competitors performed a concerto with the Orchestra of Northern New York, with maestro Kenneth Andrews at the baton, and Johnson was chosen as the second place winner. He says it was thrilling to make it to the final round,

where all three competitors were so polished that dividing them into first, second and third was mostly a technical exercise. Carter took home a $2,000 cash prize for his win, and also made some new friends. He still talks with some of the competitors and considers them his future colleagues in music. See Carter on page 4.

Chum returns a mixture of highs and lows Life is full of surprises, sometimes good sometimes less so. After attending the Remembrance Day ceremony in Campbell River I headed out to Menzies Creek, just up Island from town, for another scout around in search of adult salmon. Choosing to start in the lower section I received a positive surprise as soon as I accessed the creek at the footbridge on the Ripple Rock Trail. Looking over I started seeing chum salmon, counting eight or 10 before I’d hardly got my wading boots wet! And that was just the beginning as I was able to account for about 100 fish in total scattered around the lower section, including a school of about 20 chums in one pool. I know this sounds pretty modest stuff compared to many small river systems but this count was far and away the largest daily total I’d seen in 20 years of looking in this creek. In fact in 2008 and 2010 I didn’t see any sign of chums at all although in 2009, likely the contributing broodyear for many of the fish present this fall, I did see some. One useful feature of chum life-history is that they don’t all mature at the same age so the possibility exists that low or no return cycle-years will rebuild over time as fish

pre-migrant coho and steelhead juveniles as well as resident trout. All in all, other species of salmonids in a watershed do less well if the native chum stock is depressed or absent. Like many with an interest in salmon, it was a pleasure to see the story of chum salmon returning to Still Creek in western Burnaby for the second year in a row receive such prominent coverage in mainstream media. What wasn’t so clear is how this creek geographically fit into the scheme of things in the Lower Mainland. With a bit of sleuthing I can report that Still Creek is a headwater tributary of the Brunette River system, flowing into Burnaby Lake. Once they leave the Fraser River, into which the Brunette flows, those chums have quite a hike across a heavily urbanized landscape – if they can survive and hopefully prosper there they should be able to exist anywhere there’s an appropriate water supply! Funding for community-based salmon enhancement initiatives comes from an increasingly diverse array of sources. Obviously various government funds remain dominant and I See Ardent Angler on page 4.

A look at spying in Canada The Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) is the federal government’s special spy agency created in 2001 to combat terrorism by providing relevant intelligence to appropriate officials in Ottawa. More secret than the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS), CSEC is now a $400 million-a-year organization with 2,000 employees. Its attention, however, has wandered from spying on terrorists to gathering information on Brazilian mining and energy ministries, then giving this information to competing Canadian corporations. But CSEC, it seems, has also been spying on environmentalists, then sharing this information with corporations whose projects might be compromised by the constraints imposed on ecologically dangerous practices. News of this association between CSEC and corporations surfaced through information leaked to the media by Edward Snowden, the former employee of a contractor to America’s National Security Agency (NSA). The close co-operative relationship between NSA and CSEC revealed that Canada was spying on Brazil. More disturbing than the embarrassing

Brazilian exposé, however, has been the revelation that since 2005, CSEC, in the company Ray Grigg of both the RCMP and CSIS, has been meeting and briefing Canadian resource corporations about the activities of environmentalists who are critical of resource exploitation in Canada. (Elizabeth May, “Can You Keep a Secret”, Island Tides, Oct. 24/13). Through a Freedom of Information request, The Guardian newspaper, according to Green Party MP Elizabeth May (Ibid.), procured a heavily redacted agenda of one such meeting hosted by Enbridge, the energy corporation that is encountering heavy environmental resistance to its proposed Northern Gateway pipeline, the controversial project that is intended to move Alberta bitumen over pristine wilderness to tankers on BC’s coast at Kitimat. Enbridge provided the coffee, refreshments and meals for this May 2013 meeting. The agenda included such items as “cyber security initiatives”, “economic and

corporate espionage”, “threats” to energy infrastructure, “security of energy resources development” — particularly in BC — and “challenges to energy projects from environmental groups”. Where national security is involved, these subjects are appropriate areas of exploration between such state agencies as CSIS, CSEC and the RCMP. But meetings of these spying and policing agencies with corporations — particularly corporations heavily invested in controversial projects — suggest the existence of a clandestine and devious dysfunction in Canadian political and economic activity. An assault on the integrity of open and transparent democratic processes in this country has implications that are obvious and disturbing. The compelling conclusion is that these government agencies are in collusion with corporate interests against the legitimate activity of ordinary Canadians who are merely attempting to safeguard Canada’s natural ecological treas-

ures from oil spills, mining pollution, climate change and other environmental threats. This is an unsettling development because it suggests that the distinction between government and corporation in Canada is now too thin to be separated — what’s deemed good for one is deemed good for the other. Public concern is incidental, inconvenient and obstructionist; public involvement is only required for the occasional formality of elections. The apparent collusion between the agencies of government and the interests corporations is just one more indication of the recent restructuring of Canada’s information landscape. A June 2012 Environics survey of 15,398 government scientists revealed that 90 per cent of them “do not feel they can speak freely about their work to the media,” said Gary Corbett, president of the Professional Institute of Public Service of Canada. “But,” he added, “it is even more troubling that, faced with a departmental decision of action that could harm public health, safety or the environment, nearly as See Grigg on page 4.

The drastic methods used to reach this single objective are so contrary to the most fundamental environmental principles, and the compulsive agenda is so transparently obvious to thoughtful Canadians, that the collective effect is a growing national nervousness. The Prime Minister has increased this tension by offering an even more ominous comment in a candid conversation with Noah Richler, reported in the National Post (May 5/12): “You won’t recognize Canada when I’m through with it.� Indeed.

He’s been playing piano since he was a child, studying for years with local teacher Shelley Roberts, and has several major competitions and performances already listed on his rĂŠsumĂŠ. This summer, Carter was chosen to perform as a soloist with the Victoria Symphony Orchestra for the Victoria Symphony Splash. He performed Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G with the orchestra, on a barge for an audience of over 40,000 that filled the harbour and surrounding area. “I have played for crowds that I thought were big, but nothing compares to that,â€? he says. “It was quite an honour, because I was the first soloist that was not a Victorian — the first person from the North Island — and it was great to represent Campbell River on the barge.â€?

He’s not sure yet where he will end up, but one thing is certain: Carter’s talent and drive has put Campbell River on the musical map.

Ardent Angler from page 2. should note here that the federal Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnerships Program has announced it is seeking applications for the second round of project funding in this $10 million initiative started earlier this year. A recent private sector enhancement fund has been announced by Pacific Western Brewing, committing $20,000 to support grassroots salmon enhancement initiatives across BC. Recently it awarded $3,000 to a group in Port Alberni so I’m sure there are plenty of potential applicants within the readership area of this newspaper. I like the idea of buying beer knowing that some of the proceeds will go to a cause important to me so I undertook some research (twist my arm!) into Pacific Brewing’s products – so far their Genuine Draft is my favourite but I’ve several more varieties to work my way through and I encourage readers to do the same if you like both salmon and beer. Information on these enhancement funds can be found on the DFO and brewery websites.

Return to the Earth and The Promise of Spring by Cindy Dilts, flowers, wood, bone, butterflies

In the middle of a West Coast winter, what is a Season of Light? These are the months in which we may need more light to brighten the darker, shorter days of the celestial calendar. Our routines may shift, our activities change, how we dress and what we feel changes too. It is also the time of the year when we might celebrate holidays such as Christmas, Solstice, Ramadan, Kwanza, Noel, or Chanukah. The Comox Valley Art Gallery and Berwick Comox Valley team up to present an exhibit called Season of Light. Artists were invited to create a 3D miniature scene or diorama, incorporating or expressing human interaction and/or celebration of the Season of Light. Artists & designers were encouraged to use any materials such as stained glass, wood, metal, fur, bread, leather, candy, pop cans, paper, or carpet to build a scene of whimsical, innovative, theatrical and artistic endeavor. Some of the submissions explore snow play scenes, winter nature scenes, winter urban scene - there are many interpretations for this theme, all unique and creative. Everyone is invited to attend the Opening Reception & Awards, to get a first look at the artworks and celebrate the artists’ achievements. The reception will take place at Berwick CV (1700 Comox Ave) on Tuesday November 19th at 7pm-9pm. Admission is free, refreshments will be served and the artists will be attendance. The Awards presentation will also take place at around 7:30pm. The prizes, sponsored by Berwick Comox Valley, will be awarded and they are: $500 for Artistic Merit and Creative Response to “Season of Light”, $400 for Outstanding Message of Community, $300 for Most Creative Use of Materials and $300 for the People’s Choice Award (which will be awarded at the end of the exhibition). After the Reception, the artworks will be displayed in the front windows of Comox Valley Art Gallery from Friday November 22 - December 28. Friday November 22 is also the kick-off of Downtown Courtenay’s Moonight and Magic, as well as Winterfest. For more information, contact CVAG at 338-6211 or visit the website.

No matter the weather, you can insert some colour and light into November and December by visiting the Brushworks Show and Sale at the Pearl Ellis Gallery - in downtown Comox! In plenty of time for Christmas giving, The Brushworks Art Show and Sale will run from November 19th to December 8th (except Mondays when the Gallery is closed). One of the member artists will be in attendance on each afternoon that the gallery is open. The Brushworks is a diverse painting group which includes numerous well-known local artists and long-time members. The group was established in the nineties and has a total of 28 members who meet Wednesdays from September to June at the Lions Den. Together they provide one another with encouragement, challenge and inspiration in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The resulting artwork is varied and impressive. These artists are an upbeat group who welcome learning new techniques from each other and from workshops, thus keeping their work fresh and interesting. There is always a waiting list to join Brushworks, but spots do open up occasionally. A reception for the show will be held on Saturday, November 23rd. Come join us for refreshments from 1 pm to 4 pm at the Pearl Ellis Gallery located at 1729 Comox Ave. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists. Visitors can expect to see quality pieces of artwork in watercolour, acrylic and oils, by both established and emerging artists, in ranges of style to suit all tastes. At the reception, any new or existing member of the Pearl Ellis Gallery will receive a 10% discount on artwork purchased. FMI see www.pearlellisgallery.com

‘Remembering’: CV Concert Band performs show The Comox Valley Concert Band invites everyone to come out and enjoy their show, aptly named, “Remembering.” November is the month to remember. Summer is now over and the falling leaves remind us of seasons past. The art of music carries in its strains the power to resurrect the past and to connect us with memories. Guest bagpiper Esther Blackburn will be playing with the band for a few selections. This entertaining show is a fundraiser for the Evergreen Club. Tickets are just $5.00 each with tea and coffee served at intermission. Please support the Evergreen Club and the Comox Valley Concert Band; two worthy organizations with a solid reputation in our community. Did you know the CVCB has a long history all the way back to 1920 when it was named the Courtenay town band? In the late 1940’s, the band abandoned its original military discipline (and lost the scratchy uniforms.) The show is Sunday, November 24th at 2:00 PM with the doors opening at 1:30 PM in the Florence Filberg Centre, upper Conference Hall. Get your tickets through Courtenay Recreation- Florence Filberg Centre. FMI call 250-338-1000

Comox Valley Potters Club presents 22nd annual holiday sale Nov. 23 in Courtenay The Comox Valley Potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club 22nd holiday sale will be held at The Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay on Saturday, November 23 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Admission is a loonie, and partial proceeds will go to our local food bank. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Light the Fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; holiday sale has become a much anticipated event for locals, islanders and visitors alike wishing to shop for that perfect gift. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sale boasts over twenty potters, all with their own uniquely creative style. Over the years Vancouver Island and more specifically the Comox Valley has become B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pottery Mecca. Ceramic artists, in fact artists of all strips, are drawn to the island as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extreme beauty is an unyielding source of inspiration. You will see the colours, textures, local themes and even landscapes that draw people to the island in the vessels and ceramic sculptures for sale at this event. Many people, even those who have had hands-on exposure to the world of ceramics, are often surprised to know how many methods there are for firing pots. This variety gives the artists the individuality they strive for. The pieces presented at â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Light the Fireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; all come with a story told by a local artist speaking to you through their art. By purchasing work at this show you will be leaving with affordable art and knowing that you have supported your community and a local artist - because buying local just makes sense. Here are just a few of the techniques used by the artists to fire their work: ELECTRIC FIRING This is where the piece is glazed and fired in an electric kiln most often indoors. The skilled artist can achieve remarkable results with techniques and glazes tested many times. Majolica ware often captures the whimsy of the artist and electric fired crystalline glazes are a testament to the alchemy of the glaze world. There are countless ways that the potter can exploit the electric kiln. GAS KILNS These kilns are usually fired outdoors using propane or natural gas. The kilns are often built put of specialized bricks by their owners. Every potter has their own special method to fire their kiln - often making slight changes with each firing seeking to perfect the results in every unique kiln load. In all fuel fired kilns the operator controls the atmosphere within the kiln regulating the amount of oxygen allowed in and thereby altering the glaze responses within the kiln. PIT FIRING The once fired pots are gently layered with leaves, straw, wood, seaweed, banana peel, oxides etc. etc. outside in a pit. Once loaded the pit it is lit and slowly burned over about 24 hours. What goes in the pit and how long it burns is entirely up to the artist. These pots are works of art theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not meant to be functional items. As one can imagine, the pots are delicate and not every one survives the process making the ones that do just that much more special. RAKU This method has its roots in Japanese culture and has been adapted by North American potters. The pots are fired outside in a raku kiln and when the artist decides that the glazes are mature they are pulled out. While molten hot the work is placed in a reduction bin of combustible material and allowed to light on fire. The bin is then sealed and the fire extinguished. In this way the artist controls the

atmospheric oxygen, thereby creating the signature crackle, luster and metallic glazes people are drawn to. SALT FIRING The kiln used for this method of firing is used for salt-fired pottery exclusively. The characteristic orange-peel-like glaze is formed by throwing table salt into the kiln when it is very hot. The salt vaporizes and combines with the silica in the clay body and forms the textured glaze surface these pieces are known for. Colour is added via slips, oxides or liner glazes. A special wading on their base prevents the pots from sticking to the kiln shelves and creates unique markings on their underside. WOOD FIRING The pots for this type of firing are also waded on their undersides. Once loaded the specialized kiln is bricked up in a way that provides access to an area of the kiln that contains the wood fire that will heat the kiln. Wood will be added to this fire for many hours, sometimes days until the kiln reaches temperature. The pots are coated with Shinos, Oribes and glazes that favour the fly ash and the soluble salts and minerals provided by the wood used in the firing. Together these elements create the unique and beautifully earthy glazes found only in wood fired pots. These are just a few of the different ways that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Light the Fireâ&#x20AC;? artists will be firing their work for the Comox Valley Potterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club 22rd annual sale. You are encouraged to bring your friends on Saturday, November 23rd and support your community by buying local art! Partial proceeds from LIGHT THE FIRE will help to support the many community interests we have including the local food bank once again. Each year we present a bursary to a North Island College Ceramics student as well as assisting with equipment and kiln maintenance in their ceramics department. We are strong supporters of Y.A.N.N.A each year with our Chili Bowl event and we provide opportunities for community members to have a table at our Holiday Sale to fundraise for various causes. Again we look forward to seeing you on November 23rd.

A night of flamenco dancing Esencia Flamenca is a Comox Valley-based Flamenco troupe of musicians and dancers. Though not authentically from Spain, they deliver a passion for Flamenco that is straight from the heart, engaging and inspired. They perform this Thursday, November 21st at the Zocalo Café from 7-9 pm. The show is a celebration of the beautiful and multi-faceted music and dance traditions that were born in the Middle-Ages with the arrival of the gypsy people in the Andalusia region of Spain. Drawing from ancient sources, the Flamenco art form encompasses deep Arabic, Indian and African roots. The Zocalo kitchen features authentic tapas on special which, served with wine, make a perfect pairing for the Spanish-themed evening. Featured Flamenco dancers are Tomomi Osaki and her students Edith Jacob and Laura Busheikin. Oscar Robles is on guitar and Britt Bowman on vocals with Osaki and Robles also featured as vocalists at times. Fiery footwork (zapateos) and rhythmic handclaps (palmas) also contribute an essential part of

the music. As is typical of Flamenco shows in Spain, the repertoire the Esencia Flamenca group will be presenting at the Zocalo Café comprises a variety of palos -that is to say song forms; and, there are many. Rumbas and Tangos are some examples of different Flamenco palos. Alegrias, Bulerias, Soleares and Tientos are other examples, each with a unique sound and feeling. There is no cover charge to see Esencia Flamenca’s performance at the Zocalo, but donations are grate-

Esencia Flamenca

House Concert with Ray Materick Two Eagles Lodge is pleased to announce a November 22nd house concert featuring Ray Materick, Shelley Gravelle, and the BettyBGidd Band (including former Comox Valley musicians Bettyanne and Gidd Hampton). Ray Materick is a well-known Canadian singer-songwriter from Ontario, who emerged on the international music scene in the 1970s when he garnered Top 20 Radio hits with songs like, Linda Put The Coffee On, which was one of the first Cancon radio standards. Ray’s wife, Shelley Gravelle, is a slide guitar player who was raised in Ontario in a “musical family” and inspired by the greats of Blues... people like Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Ella Fitzgerald, Willie Dixon and Billie Holiday. The featured musicians met up in the northern regions of British Columbia. Gidd and BettyAnne Hampton, former Comox-Valley residents and musicians who were very active in the area’s music scene, are also quite the accomplished musical duo-now residing in Fort St. John, BC. An island native, Gidd combines his passion and extraordinary skill on guitar with a unique voice and attitude; Bettyanne, who fell in love with the accordion, not only owns one, “but actually plays it like she is pulling your heart out with each push and pull of the squeezebox,” says a fellow musician. The BettyBGidd band, formed in the couple’s new hometown of Fort St. John, also features a drummer, Dave Tolley, who has played percussion for years. He has recorded and/or toured with Xavier Rudd, Nine Mile, Dayna Manning, Danny Michel, Mike Alviano, Peter Katz, Melissa Larkin and many others.

University big band Thursday at The Little Red Church monthly jazz series On the heels of two stellar evenings of music, the monthly Fall Jazz Series at The Little Red Church continues thisThusrday at 7:30. Professor Gregory Bush is thrilled to bring the 17-piece Vancouver Island University Big Band for an evening performance. The University students are serious musicians, many of whom will be embarking on full time careers in the music industry, upon receiving their music degrees at Vancouver Island University. This will be another exceptional evening of entertainment as these music stars of tomorrow present their musical interpretation of the great standards and more. The Band is expertly conducted by Vancouver Island University Professor, Gregory Bush, who is the Valley’s very own “Marathon Music Man”, having logged in excess of 40,000 kilometers over the years from his home in Nanaimo, to support and conduct the Georgia Strait Big Band. Greg is a major contributor to the Jazz and music education scene in the Valley and is a fine musician, who loves to teach. Greg is originally from Montreal and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Concordia University and “Master of Music in Jazz Performance” from McGill University. In addition to a University teaching career, Greg has enjoyed a career as a busy freelance trumpet player, arranger and composer. As a sideman, Greg has had the good fortune of playing in bands that have accompanied artists such as Big Miller, Bobby Shew, Lee Konitz and Dizzy Gillespie. For this months’ “opening act” you will experience the “Mystic Valley Voices” choral group which is dedicated to the art of universal devotional chanting, with soothing harmonic meditations. Joining the Jazz Series team are Heather and Allison, otherwise known as “The JazzVille Cafe” and will be offering an excellent selection of home baked goodies, tea and coffee. The Little Red Church, along with “JazzVille Promotions” are looking forward to another fantastic evening of music and entertainment. Doors open at 7:00. Advance tickets are $10.00 ($12 at the door) and available at Bop City Records and The Red Carpet Boutique in Comox.

ANDERSON JAZZ SYNDICATE AT ZOCALO CAFE On Friday Nov. 29th, the Anderson Jazz Syndicate will be performing at Courtenay’s Zocalo Cafe, located at the corner of 5th and Cliffe Avenue. This trio of guitar bass and drums will once again bring its authentic jazz club vibe to the Zo. Fronted by guitarist Doug Anderson, this trio thrives on the musical interplay between the group members. John Hyde is well known across the country for his skill and musicality on stand up bass. Similarly, Aaron Amar brings an inventiveness to the drum kit that opens up the music to new vistas. Enjoy an evening of fine jazz and good food. Music starts at 7pm.
