Two new city staff positions had to be justified in front of council Wednesday, the third day of budget deliberations. Council got hung up debating the addition of a second custodian for the Community Centre to address safety concerns related to working alone. The $77,000 per year position was added to help support the custodian working alone after office hours who’s had to deal with fighting and public drunkeness (see story on page A5). “We had some very, very close calls,” Ross Milnthorp, city parks, recreation and culture manager, told council. “We believe this position is integral to the safety of workers and customers.” He said a joint health and safety committee originally took a number of steps to fix the problem including setting up cameras and setting alarms on the doors of the Community Centre. In the end, the committee felt the best solution would be to add a second custodian. Coun. Claire Moglove acknowledged that having the transit exchange at the Community Centre has potentially contributed to the amount of mischief that occurs in and around that area. But Coun. Andy Adams said moving the transit system exchange to the Community Centre was the right thing to do. “I believe most parents would say they feel more safe putting

their child on a bus that ends up where it does now instead of at the former bus shelter (Tyee Plaza) which was not a very nice place,” he said. The second additional city staff position is a $84,000 per year deputy clerk, a position mandated by the city. City Manager Andy Laidlaw said the position needs to be in place in order to maintain operations. Peter Wipper, who took over the position of city clerk after Bill Halstead retired last year, said a few months ago while on holidays, he was called in to work to sign papers that were time sensitive. If the city had had a deputy clerk at the time, they could have signed the papers in Wipper’s place.

Budget: reserves discussed

PAUL RUDAN/THE MIRROR

BC Forest Safety Ombudsman Roger Harris was in Campbell River on Wednesday conducting interviews for his forthcoming report on the silviculture industry.

The most significant alteration was made to the Allowance for Assessment Appeals, a stabilization reserve that supplies the city with funds in the event someone is successful in appealing their taxes. The reserve had $729,000 in it but council, with the exception of Adams, voted to set it at $250,000 and apply the rest towards the deficit.Adams argued that it’s not sustainable to use those funds to erase the debt. “We cannot balance the books on the backs of one-time reserve dollars,” he said. Council continued to debate the budget Thursday after the Mirror went to press and are expected to resume discussion today from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. See campbellrivermirror.com for updates.

Continued from Page 1 the city’s reserve accounts on Wednesday. The information was relayed to council by Laidlaw and Laura Ciarniello, corporate services manager, via a powerpoint presentation. But Adams was not pleased to see a handout of the slideshow passed around just prior to the presentation. “It’s not appropriate to get this information so late. We need time to look it over,” said Adams. “We need some time to go through it before council can make a conscious decision.” Adams requested a 30-minute recess but that was turned down and the presentation went ahead with council given the opportunity to ask questions after each reserve was presented.

The provincial “watchdog” on forestry safety was in the city Wednesday to talk about tree planters. BC Forest Safety Ombudsman Roger Har ris also interviewed silviculturists and foresters for a review he’s doing on the industry. “When I get involved, it’s viewed things aren’t going well,” Harris said. That’s not entirely true in this case, but the review was prompted by actions of a not-so-diligent company. In January, Khaira Enterprises was penalized $3,500 and ordered to pay its workers $236,500 in unpaid wages, plus interest. The penalties were a result of an investigation into the silviculture company which operated camps in Powell River, Texada Island, Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Revelstoke and Golden. The investigation found the company had imposed poor living and working conditions last summer. “The Khaira situation is not typical of the industry, but I have received calls about health and safety conditions at silviculture camps in the past,” said Harris. “It appears that a small number of con-

tractors and operators are not acting in the best interests of workers and these types of situations continue to occur.” While most silviculture firms – which also do tree spacing and thinning – act professionally, the industry is sometimes viewed as, “The last cowboys of the forest industry,” said Harris. Part of the problem, he added, are the overlapping ministries, agencies, industry sectors and associations all connected to silviculture. Harris said they tend to look after their own narrow scopes of view, and there’s a need to co-ordinate all the services for the betterment of workers. Harris intends to make recommendations to help prevent further Khaira-like situations and to coordinate all the gover ning bodies. His review is supported by the industry. “The B.C. silviculture industry welcomes this investigation. We hope it will produce a comprehensive and impartial review of the conditions that led to the Khaira situation,” said John Betts, executive director of the Western Silviculture Contractors’ Association, in a statement.

well represented in politics, science, culture and sports and National Tartan Day is an opportunity to celebrate all Canadians who claim Scottish ancestry. On March 9, 1986, a Tartan Day to promote Scottish heritage in Canada, was proposed at a meeting of the Federation of Scottish Clans in Nova Scotia. April 6, 1320 is the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath, establishing the historical independence of Scotland and the rights of the Scottish people to choose their own sovereign, was signed. Three million Australians are either Scottish or of Scottish descent. International Tartan Day is celebrated in Australia and New Zealand. In the United States it is estimated that there are six million people who claim Scottish descent and national Tartan Day is celebrated annually on April 6. In Scotland, Angus Council, whose region includes Arbroath, established the first Tartan Day festival in Scotland on April 6, 2004. Argentina claims around 100,000 people of Scottish descent who have their own Tartan day celebra-

tions. Campbell River is named after Dr. Samuel Campbell, assistant surgeon on the HMS Plumper, a British survey ship that surveyed Johnstone Strait and this part of the B.C. coastline in the 1850s and 1860s. On Wednesday at Spirit Square there will be the reading of an official proclamation, pipers, dancers and other entertainment as well as activities for all ages. Participants are urged to were a kilt or tartan.

The City of Campbell River has released a new survey for the Sustainable Official Community Plan and is asking you to speak to the community’s future. People who complete the survey by April 4 will have their name entered in an early bird prize draw to win one of two day passes to Mount Washington. The Directions and Choices Survey will help set policy directions for Campbell River’s Sustainable Official Community Plan (SOCP). The survey questions are built on input gathered from SOCP events held over the past six months. The events included two major public forums, community outreach events, a comprehensive survey and number of stakeholder workshops. Input from hundreds of community members has been summarized and crafted into a framework of future directions and choices. The survey asks the public to help make choices for the future regarding land use, social well-being, economic development, agriculture and the environment. “Once complete, the Sustainable Official Community Plan will be the City’s most comprehensive policy document and will be used to inform Council decision making,” says Mayor Charlie Cornfield. “As we are nearing the final stages of the document’s creation, survey responses will provide input that will directly influence the nature of policy development.” Paper copies of the survey are also available at City Hall, the Sportsplex and the Community Centre. The last day to complete the survey is April 15. City staff will also be at retail outlets in the community providing paper copies of the survey.

Waterslide added to hydro project RAUL DANUP SPECIAL TO THE MIRROR

BC Hydro wants to add a little fun to their billion-dollar project to replace the John Hart Generating Station. The corporation has decided to go with the more expensive option of building a two-kilometre tunnel down General Hill to replace the current pipelines carrying water to the

surge towers. The tunnel option provides greater stability in the event of a massive earthquake. Work on the project is expected to begin in late 2012. To help offset those extra costs, hydro will build an adjacent water slide that can operate year-round. “It makes financial sense,” said hydro spokesman Jules Watt.

“This would be the longest waterslide in the world and would bring a lot of interest to the Campbell River area.” Engineers are designing the waterslide to run inside the pipeline, with some areas covered in Plexiglas to provide panoramic views of the towering Douglas fir trees in Elk Falls Provincial Park. “It will be a little like Space Mountain

at Disneyland where it’s dark and you’re not sure where you’re going,” said Watt, who can’t wait to ride the slide. “My kids are already bugging me to get it finished so we can come to Campbell River.” Watt said prices would range from $5 per ride for an adult to $25 for an all-day pass. Riders would also have the option of rent-

ing dive gear in order to snorkel with the salmon when they’re pitched into the river at the end of the run. “We’ll also be providing a warm water pool for those who can’t take the cold,” said Watt. Hydro is also holding a “Name The Waterslide Contest.” The winner will receive a life-time pass. Details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Problem drunks affect the public PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

It wasn’t a pretty sight when Jimmy Pielle was found passed out in the public washroom at the downtown Community Centre. On March 24, around 2:30 p.m., RCMP were called by staff after Pielle was found in a stall, with his pants down and his head hanging over the toilet bowl, said Crown prosecutor David Fitzsimmons on Monday in provincial court. The washroom was immediately closed until officers arrived. It then took some effort to wake a drunken Pielle who was told to wash up before being taken into custody. Reading from the police report, Fitzsimmons said the clean-up seemed like a “monumental effort” for the 31-year-old who was slow and deliberate in

his movements. It also wasn’t the first time Pielle was ar rested for being drunk in public. In February, he received a 21-day sentence for a similar offence and was on a probation order when he was arrested last week. This time Fitzsimmons asked Judge Brian Saunderson to impose a 30-day jail sentence after Pielle pleaded guilty to a single count of mischief. The prosecutor acknowledged that Pielle has a serious problem with alcohol, but his choice of hanging around the Community Centre, while impaired, affects the quality of life for everyone who goes there. Duty counsel lawyer Vince Martin said 30 days was a fit sentence and that Pielle wants to get into the 28-day detox program at the Second Chance Recov-

2X2.5

ery House. “He has a problem and he has to deal with it,” Martin said. And just after Pielle was led away to cells, another problem alcoholic appeared before the judge. Andrew Maquinna, 30, was taken into custody on March 23, in Gold River, and later charged with four counts of causing a disturbance and two

counts of failing to abide by a probation order. The court heard that a drunken Maquinna was banging on doors and trying to force his way into apartment units. All but one of the charges were dropped after he pleaded guilty to a single count of failing to comply with his probation order. Judge Saunderson then asked how much

M a q u i n n a d r i n k s. The unemployed Gold River man replied that he consumes between 24 and 48 beer almost daily. Maquinna acknowledge that he needs help and the the judge urged him to get it quickly. “Get some help. You need it and the public needs it,” said Judge Saunderson who sentenced him to time served.

take positions because they can’t get their criminal record checks back fast enough,” said Andy Laidlaw, city manager. “City staff believe the impact on the community is significant and support purchasing the equipment.” The fingerprint machine comes at a cost of $20,000 but that also includes training, said Gelinas. “If council goes ahead with the purchase of the equipment, it will expedite the timeframe,” he

said. With the new equipment, it’s expected to reduce the turnaround from Ottawa to 10-14 days. The new machine is similar to a laptop. The fingerprints are taken on the equipment and then sent off through the computer. Coun. Andy Adams suggested dollars from gaming grants be put towards the cost of the machine but council voted to defer any decision-making until its next council meeting, April 12.

munities throughout Vancouver Island to help support the needs of the dying and the bereaved. “Individuals and families who are dealing with an end of life situation are provided invaluable support by community-based hospice societies,” said Ron Cantelon, MLA for Parksville-Qualicum. “This one-time financial support recognizes the significant contribution that hospice societies make not only in Oceanside, but right across Vancouver Island.” The nine hospices are represented by the Vancouver Island Federation of Hospices (the Federation) and include Alberni Valley Hospice Society, Campbell River Hospice Society, Cowichan Valley Hospice Society, Comox Valley Hospice Society, Nanaimo Community Hospice Soci-

ety, Oceanside Hospice Society, Pacific Rim Hospice Society, Salt Spring Island Hospice and Sooke Hospice Society. With the exception of the Victoria Hospice Society, which is funded differently, each hospice society will receive a total of $11,700 in the 2010/11 fiscal year for a total of $105,300. “Hospice societies work with the dying, their caregivers and the bereaved within the VIHA catchment area,” said Wendy Pratt, President of the Vancouver Island Federation of Hospices. Pratt addressed the VIHA Board Meeting in Oceanside Wednesday where she outlined the valuable role that both volunteers and professionals working within hospice societies play in end of life care as they support individuals and families.


NEWS Weapons stolen from home Guns and an oxygen machine were stolen from residence located in the 100 block of South Thulin St. last week. The theft occurred overnight on March 21-22. RCMP say the suspects entered the resident’s unlocked car and then used the garage door opener to get inside the home. Four firearms and a Point 4 Oxygen Maintenance System were stolen from the residence. There have been no arrests and police are reminding the public that garage door openers are frequently used by thieves to gain entry into homes.

later, they will pick up the vehicles to commit further crime,” said RCMP Sgt. Craig Massey. “It is possible that these vehicles could be linked to a recent rash of copper wire thefts.” Sometime overnight on Monday and Tuesday, two pickups were stolen from Bill Howich Chrysler, located in the north end of the city. One is a white 1998 Dodge with a white canopy and some pinstriping and the other is a black 2001 Dodge. The ignition on a third vehicle was also tampered with. Anyone with information is asked to call Campbell River RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

Trucks stolen from dealership Another copper wire theft Two trucks stolen from a local dealership could be used by thieves to commit further crimes, according to police. “Often the thieves will steal vehicles and conceal them at a remote location. One to three days

The rash of copper wire thefts continues. There have been at least four significant thefts since early February. The latest was reported to Mounties on March 23, and occurred at a commercial

compound located in the 5700 block Island Hwy. The thieves targeted the exterior electrical wiring of the buildings and stole more than $10,000 worth of copper wire. RCMP Forensic Investigators are assisting in the investigation.

Two drug busts The RCMP Street Crimes Unit conducted an investigation into a suspected drug trafficker last Saturday. Officers contacted the 51-year-old man and ordered a quantity of cocaine. A short time later the suspect and a passenger were stopped and arrested. A search resulted in the seizure of cocaine and $860 in cash. Police are recommending that both suspects be charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. Also, on March 24, there was a report of an intoxicated female refusing to

leave a residence on Twillingate Road. Police attended and arrested her. During a search, some cocaine and ecstasy was found in her possession. Charges are now being recommended for possession of a controlled substance.

Vehicle thefts, accident Over the evening of March 21-22, an unlocked vehicle in the 100 block of Thulin Street was entered and numerous electronic items were stolen. On Friday, a blue 1996 Dodge Ram, BC License Plate 9154EJ, was stolen. The vehicle also had an aluminum drybox in the bed. The unlocked vehicle had been parked at a commercial

establishment on 14th Avenue. Also, last Friday, around 3 p.m., police responded to a report of a hit and run in the Tyee Plaza parking lot. A female in a blue Chevrolet pick-up backed into another vehicle while exiting a parking space, then parked and left the scene in a different vehicle. Evidence at the scene and witnesses helped identify the female driver. She was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Tagger caught A man is facing a charge of mischief for “tagging” the walls of an apartment complex on 7th Avenue. The man was caught last Saturday with red and black marker on his hands.

Drive Smart BC Defective Vehicles - A Crash Looking for2X14 a Place to Happen What do you do with a pickup that has only one operating light, a high beam headlight, being driven at night between towns? How about another being driven in the rain with wipers being operated by the passenger who was pushing and pulling on a rope with one end tied to each wiper TYEE CHEV and run through the passenger compartment via the vent windows? One driver even put black tape over the warning light that would have led him to discover no brake fluid in one reservoir of his master cylinder if he had investigated it. These examples are just a few of many that I ran into over the course of my career in traffic law enforcement. It’s glaringly obvious that these drivers chose to put other road users at risk. What might be less obvious is the dilemma I was in. Now that I had found them I was obligated to do something about it or I would risk liability myself if I were to let them continue. Once your vehicle is no longer properly equipped for use on the highway you are obligated to remove it immediately. In order to take it to repair you would call a tow truck or other vehicle capable of moving the vehicle safely such as a deck truck. This is the only legal way to move a defective vehicle on the highway. If you choose not to and are a significant hazard, police will order the vehicle removed immediately, may seize the licence plates and vehicle licence document to return to ICBC. The order will also require that you repair the vehicle and pass inspection at a designated inspection facility prior to driving the vehicle on the highway again. This is commonly known as a notice and order number one. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience.

United Way exceeds $$ goal Last year was exceptionally positive for the local United Way team as they established new community partnerships to help support those in need. Joining the campaign’s long list of supporters were the City of Campbell River, NVI Mining, Elk Falls Social Club and many others who helped raise significant amounts of dollars towards the campaign goal of $120,000. “These groups were vital to meeting our goal,” said campaign chair Jim Forsyth. “Despite the economic times, they went above and beyond to show their support for their community.” Forsyth is passing “the torch” for this year’s campaign to Ron Fisher who works at CIBC. “2011 will be another exciting year for us to help strengthen and build our community partnerships through-

CF Chapter celebrates 25 years Twenty-five years of history and success for the Campbell River Chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada was celebrated March 12. The chapter began as a branch of the Powell River Chapter when eight people held the first meeting on May 16, 1983 to strategize how they would work towards finding a cure for the devastating disease, cystic fibrosis (CF). Sixteen-monthold Kim Black had been diagnosed with CF just one month earlier. The minutes of that meeting included a heartfelt thank you: “The Black family would like to thank everyone for their terrific support in forming this branch. We feel any contribution towards the (CF) foundation means more research and increases the chances of finding a cure for Kimmy’s disease. It is our most sincere and deepest hope that a cure will soon be found so she can live as full a life as the rest of us.” These words are as meaningful today as they were then and extend to the entire Campbell River community on behalf of all families who deal with CF. While a cure has not yet been found, medical treatment for people with cystic fibrosis has improved significantly and little Kimmy Black is now almost 30-years-old, is married and works as a nurse in Vancouver. Ryan Mennie, representing the Mayor and Council welcomed 100 people who attended the event. They heard

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

Magazine’s ranking is pure bunk Let’s be clear about something: MoneySense’s ranking of Canada’s best places to live is bunk. Sure, Campbell River ranked 174th out of the magazine’s 179-place ranking. That doesn’t mean we’re the fifth worst place to We say: There live in Canada. That’s ridiculous. are so many According to the magazine’s subjective factors criteria, we’re the fifth-worst ranked community of the 179 they in liveability ranked. There are more than 5,000 municipalities in Canada. Certainly, some of those might be “better” than Campbell River, depending on your criteria but there are going to be many

“worse.” Headlines screaming worst place in Canada as determined by a magazine desperate for better circulation figures are, as we all know if we sit down and think it through, misleading. Can you honestly say that someone with a house on the Campbell River foreshore overlooking beautiful Discovery Passage and the northern Gulf Islands is in a worse-off situation than a homeless person in East Vancouver (Vancouver placed 29th in the MoneySense article)? It’s completely subjective and it’s obvious that living in any one of the cities listed in the magazine’s article is better than many (most?) places in the world.

So bully for MoneySense, they found a way to get everybody talking about their magazine just like the Fraser Institute manages to get everyone talking about their right wing think tank when they release the debatable B.C. school rankings and Maclean’s tries to get some notice with its university rankings. It’s a circulation or publicity ploy. The magazine article can have some value if it gets Campbell Riverites talking about what can we do to make our community better. We have some issues to deal with as we adapt to the post-Elk Falls Mill era. It’s going to be tough but we’ll come out ahead because...this is a nice place to live.

Good point: Volunteers National Volunteer Week is Sunday, April 10 to Saturday, April16 and there are many exciting events happening in Campbell River to acknowledge the work volunteers do in our community. The Volunteer of the Year winners will be announced at a wine and cheese reception at the museum Wednesday, April 13. The nominees are: Youth - Nicole Cunning (Yucalta Lodge), Adult - Hope Benavidez (CR Christian School), Dave Brown (MISA) and Sari Johnson (AIDS VI), and Senior - Sheridan Dahlgren (CR Literacy), Robert Donahue (CR Literacy), Anne Hamilton (Adult Care Society), Chris Kelly (Search and Rescue), Al Nelson (Habitat for Humanity), Jeanne Norton (CR Art Gallery), Sylvia Phillips (Meals on Wheels), Anne Richard (Habitat for Humanity), Rob Robinson (Hospice) and Deb Willis (CR Museum). Warren Andrews from 99.7 The River will emcee the awards ceremony. Tickets for the Volunteer Campbell River Annual Mother’s Day Raffle will also be available at the event. Monday, April 11 will feature the raising of the National Volunteer Week flag at city hall at 11:30 a.m., followed at Noon by a Criminal Record Check Information Session at the Enterprise Centre. Bring your lunch and join Volunteer Campbell River (VCR) for an interactive session with a local RCMP officer and records clerk to discuss changes and updates in the criminal record check process, the vulnerable sector search, bylaw information updates, etc.

Highlands and islands and mountain snows

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

There were some men at the Spirit Square on Wednesday afternoon who were proud to say they wear the skirts in their families. That’s because they were Scottish and we were shooting the promotional picture for Tartan Day that appears on the cover of today’s Mirror. The leader of this little clan of civic-minded individuals was Ron Kerr who is behind this idea of celebrating Scottish heritage in Campbell River. Of course, I had to get on that bandwagon – as a Lowland Scottish representative – and in a blatant display of self-interest I stuck the picture on the front. Somewhere a former owner of this paper is feeling a cold chill down his spine. He once considered a ban

on bagpipers’ pictures in the paper. I hadn’t felt there’d been too many. As Scots, we do tend to be silent in the background...well, okay you might not say that if you were with a bunch of them in the Legion or something but culturally Campbell River’s Scottish heritage has been so much a part of the mainstream it hasn’t felt the need for overt expression. I mean, is there a civic function where the Legion Pipe Band doesn’t play? And the namesake of this city is the river named after Dr. Samuel Campbell, ship’s surgeon on the HMS Plumper which surveyed this area. And Campbell’s a Scottish name, if you didn’t know. But, maybe it is time to blow our own horn...or pipes. Swing by the Tartan Day celebration at noon on

Wednesday at the Spirit Square and take in some Caledonian spirit. ●●●● Went snowshoeing up on Mount Washington on Sunday and I’d like you to know that it’s still winter up there. Snow was falling and occasionally the wind whipped up enough to make you squint your eyes against the blowing flakes. But it was a beautiful day nonetheless. There’s still a ton of snow up there. If you know the trail into Lake Helen Mackenzie, you might know a part where a small footbridge crosses a creek. The trail is basically at creek level and the bridge is a step above it to cross over. In the summer, that is. Last Sunday, we crossed the creek without realizing it until we looked

back at the bridge. The creek itself cut through a near-canyon of snow and where it passed under the bridge, there was around five metres of snow between the bridge deck and the top of the snowpack. It was amazing to see. You walk on the snow thinking like you’re at ground level but to see the snow stacked on the bridge – underneath you – really brings it home how much has fallen up there this winter. And it was still falling. Drove back down to sea level and lo and behold, it was spring again. But, to tell the truth, I’ve had it with winter so our springy weekend morphing into near-winter temperatures and drizzle during the week was not appreciated. So stop it.

and taste resemble celery or asparagus. Various species of this circumboreal plant existed in ancient Europe, where it was called coughwort or butterbur. Imaginative early botanists thought coltsfoot leaves resembled horseshoes … thus the common name. So useful were the leaves, flowers and roots that French pharmacists painted ‘Pas d’âne’ blossoms on their signposts. Scientific analysis confirms zinc, calcium, potassium, vitamin C, and tannin (an antiseptic) in coltsfoot, and it’s a potent ingredient of some cough syrups and herbal teas. Bees love it, butter improves it, our ancestors smoked it, and coughs may be cured with it, making coltsfoot an all-in-one wildflower, vegetable, medicine and tobacco! Springtime fantasies of little colts prancing along a riverbank should be enough to coax anyone outside to look for these wildflower front-runners, but don’t delay, as they’ll soon disappear beneath their own canopy of dinner plate-size leaves.

Campbell River Living The ring of life and business with Tom Pallan of the Pallan Group, Pallan remains energetic and enthusiastic about his businesses, as well as the opportunities that lie ahead. “We do business all over the world,” he says with arms spread as wide as his smile.

T

om Pallan isn’t sure where or when he lost the ring. Somewhere and some time over the past 50 years, the silver ring handed out to all forestry graduates went missing. While it wasn’t particularly valuable, it was significant. In 1958, Pallan became the first person of Indo-Canadian heritage to graduate from the Forestry program at the University of British Columbia. He was also a double-major student, earning a second degree in engineering at the age of 25, along with an iron ring that students receive upon graduation. Pallan still has his iron ring, but the silver ring was never

Beginning In 1906, Tom Pallan’s grandfather emigrated from India to Canada. He landed in Victoria and went to work in a lime quarry just outside the city. The quarry later became the worldfamous Butchart Gardens. But before there were flowers, the family patriarch worked hard removing lime from the quarry for 10 cents an hour. In the 1920s, Pallan’s parents moved from India to Canada to raise their family. He grew up speaking Punjabi and, as a result,

was kept in the first grade for two years and spent another two years in Grade 2. But like his parents and grandfather before him, Pallan worked and studied hard, and eventually earned his way into UBC. After graduating with two degrees, Pallan spent the next year at Oregon State College where he earned a Masters degree in Forestry. In 1959, Pallan and his father purchased a forestry licence on property located about 20 kilometres north of Campbell River, and began turning timber into lumber. Through the years and the economic highs and lows of the forestry industry, Pallan Timber company grew and prospered. Then, in 1970, PalContinued on A18

Continued from A16 lan, his wife Koko and their three boys moved to Campbell River. The seaside town became their home where their children and business continued to grow.

Diversifying Change is inevitable, says Tom Pallan, and must be embraced and understood for a business to survive, especially in the forestry industry. He can’t count how many forestry businesses he’s seen “come and go,” and firmly believes that diversification is the reason the Pallan Group of companies survives and thrives. For example, he says, companies which solely relied on the huge U.S. market to sell their timber and lumber products, were hammered by the Softwood Lumber Agreement and the crash in new home building. America, Pallan readily acknowledges, is a valuable market, but so are places like Japan, China and India which want B.C. logs and lumber. “There are 300 million middle class in China. It’s the same with India. They all want homes and they all want a better standard of living,” he says. The Pallan Group is based in Campbell River and has satel-

lite sales offices for timber and lumber in Japan and China. Pallan himself recently returned from a lumber trade mission to India. He was invited by Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts – due the Pallans’ business dealings in the Lower Mainland city – and spent six busy days visiting with potential new customers. “We’re already getting inquiries, but we’ll see if they turn into real business,” says Pallan, who readily enjoys the personal interaction. “If they don’t know who you are, how are they going to do business with you?” As for diversification, the Pallan Group is an “umbrella” for three company divisions: forestry through Pallan Timber; custom lumber cutting through Howe Sound Forest Products; and real estate through Pallan Holdings. The latter includes the 100-acre Forest Grove Properties residential subdivision and the commercial block in Campbellton between Willow and Tamarac streets which includes the Fountain Tire building. “That’s where our new office is going to be,” says Pallan, pointing to the empty lot beside Fountain Tire, as he drives by in his Porche SUV.

Tom Pallan shows off his new silver ring given to UBC Forestry grads. He lost the original ring he received in 1958.

The True Ring It’s hard to believe Tom Pallan is nearly 79 years old or is slowing down. His voice rings with youthful enthusiasm and there’s still a spring in his brisk step. And it’s nearly impossible not to be charmed by his wit, charisma and breadth of knowledge. But now, he admits, he spends half the week in the office and allows his sons, Rauvi and Derik, to manage business along with a dedicated core of employees. Pallan has become the quintessential family patriarch and his wisdom is rooted in the generations that came before him. Family, education and community provide the other cornerstones that form the foundation of his life. “What’s important to me is, I’ve had a good life and I want to give back and support my community, which we do,” he says. The Pallan family

has provided significant financial donations to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation, the Community Foundation and the museum. And each year they provide four scholarships to new students at North Island College in memory of their son Michael who died in 1996. Pallan is also a proud grandfather as he points to the photos of his two granddaughters on the ring of family photos that surrounds his office. Both are fluent in French and both are studying math and physics at major colleges in the U.S. As well, today is a special day for him and Koko as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. “We’re very fortunate,” he says. And Tom Pallan is also sporting a new ring. In March he was invited by the UBC Forestry Dean, John Innes, to attend a ceremony where he was presented with a new silver ring along with 84 graduating students. It was a memorable moment in a remarkable life which Pallan thoroughly cherishes. “You know, we’re not a big country, but this is a great country,” he says, as he catches himself in a moment of reflection and quickly quips, “Now don’t be writing any of that flowery stuff !”

PERSONALS

“where your family comes first”

In every generation there lives a person with such a free spirit of strength, character, kindness, gentleness, and determination that an example of life has been set for the living and generations to come. Judith Mary Burd passed away peacefully on March 24th 2011 at her home in Campbell River B.C. with her husband and life companion Warren at her loving side. Life-long friend Cecilia from Ontario and Daughter Keli tended to her for her final weeks. Her niece Jennifer also came from Ontario to visit during this time. It was only cancer that could overcome her strength at the end to take her away early from family and loved ones. Her best friend Brenda Nelson will miss their lunches and their time together. Born on May 6th 1944 to Nancy and William Hoyle in England, the family moved to Ontario, Canada when Judy and brother Tony were children. Judy was a constant adventurer, riding horses in barrel races in their home town of Oakville Ontario. A chance meeting with Warren while looking for a car started a relationship that would mature into husband and wife, partners in business, through both tough and good times and traveling companions in retirement. Forever the fountain of strength and encouragement in their lives, Judy and Warren shared countless memories and adventures. No stranger to new challenges, Judy earned her airbrake ticket so as to drive a 50,000 pound recreational bus. At age 60 Judy obtained her motorcycle license and traveled over 100 thousand miles in 6 years of riding Hondas, Victories, and Harley Davidson’s. It was clear that an open road was Judy’s path to happiness that she shared with so many. Some knew Judy as a gourmet cook, while others knew her for her charm and wit. All knew her for her straight up nature and kindness. Judy was a Master Knitter, certified by the Knitters Guild of Canada. As loving mother to Keli the two shared many motherdaughter craft weekends and vacations going to quilting conventions together. As a grandparent known as ‘Darling’ to Amelia and Andrew, she shared a bond of strength and was a constant source of encouragement. As a champion mother-in-law to Michael Hansen, she will be missed for her wit, charm and charisma. She will be missed by her extended family, and all who knew her. Cancer may have taken Judy’s life, but that victory pales when compared to Judy’s indelible mark of love that will remain on the hearts of so many. The memory of Judith Mary Burd will be forever alive. Condolences to the family may be left at www.suttonsfuneralhome.com.

IN MEMORIAM

IN MEMORIAM

Kathleen Danis May 9, 1935 - April 1, 2010 A DREAM SO REAL I glance at a dimly lit room. I enter & see your face. First I wonder, "where is this place?" All questions are tossed aside as your eyes once again meet mine. Has it already been a year? A year since we last said hello; a year since we last said goodbye? I don't want to know why; why you've decided to visit me. I'm satisfied hearing your voice, ever so softly. Softly, u whisper your motherly advice. With your words, I'll never have to think twice. U made me promise to always take care of the ones I love. Then the room slowly fades to black, & I'll never forget how I awaken in a cold sweat. Tears endlessly crawl down my face as I realize the truth of that place. It was all a dream, or so it seems it was a dream so real. Thank U for visiting me. Thank u for letting me hear your voice & see your smile. I've missed it all for a long while, as u watch on us from above, I promise to always take care of the ones I love. Love your Boys

Sandra Ruth Yeomans (nee Davis) 1964 ~ 2011 Sandy was born October 21, 1964 in Comox, BC and died peacefully at home of Endo-cervical cancer on March 29, 2011. She was a loving wife to Doug, mother to Sarah, Laura (Jeff), Evan and Owen, grandmother to Leah, daughter to Jim and Maureen Davis, and sister to Sue, Ken and Hunter. Sandy was a very loving person who especially enjoyed her work with special needs students both young and old. She will be best remembered for her endless love to her family and many, many friends. Donations made in lieu of flowers in Sandy’s name to the BC Cancer Agency are appreciated. A Service to Celebrate Sandy’s Life will be held at 2:00 pm, Saturday, April 3, 2011 at Granthall Hall, 6040 Island Highway, Merville, across from Tsolum School. Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Toneff Funeral Services.

Sports Crush squeeze opposition The Crush Chaos claimed top spot in at Sunday’s U14 girls volleyball tournament at Carihi. Strong serving and dominant net play helped the team go undefeated. The team’s first match-up was against the Crush U13 Red team which fought hard to take 13 points from the Chaos. In game two, the Chaos clobbered Port Alberni Airborne 25-7, 25-2. The girls met Parksville in their last round-robin match, winning the first set 25-12. In the second set, the Chaos scratched out a 27-25 win. Megan Turko and Sarah Chase con-

trolled the net while Kaitlyn Herbert added to the attack in the middle with some strong swings. Power hitters Nicole Herbert and Hayley Zumkeller helped the effort with some well-placed shots. Setters Kaitlyn Falk and Brooklyn Reesor did a great job setting up the attack and playing excellent defense. In the other pool, the Crush U14 Quinsam Coal Attack defeated Nanaimo in a close match 25-23, 25-19. They followed up with a win against the Campbell River Crush U13 Black team. In a strange twist, the girls played Nanaimo

a second time with the winner advancing to the final. Nanaimo came out strong taking the first set 26-25 before the Attack regrouped and took the second in a convincing manner 25-18. Nanaimo edged out the Crush U14 Attack in the tie breaker 15-11. The girls met Parksville in the bronze medal match losing the first set 20-25 before rolling over Parksville 25-7, 15-9. Tommi Corder led the scoring with her powerful serving. All four Crush teams are training for the upcoming Island Championships on April 16-17, in Nanaimo.

In the middle row are: Elaina Drewry, Tara Dickson, Cassidy Bellavance, Lisa Lloyd, Julia Wing, Taylor Rose and Megan Grant. In the front are goalies Shaylene Gjesdal and Taylor Buell.

Edge skate to B.C. title

PAUL RUDAN/THE MIRROR

Brooklyn Reesor gets set to return the serve for the Crush Chaos as the U14 girls defeated Parksville last Saturday in the Carihi gymnasium.

The girls on the North Island Edge hockey team are the queens of Midget B hockey in B.C. The Bantam A team competed in the Richmond Ice Classic last weekend and came home with the title. Edge goalies Shaylene Gjesdal and Taylor Buell led the way, allowing just three goals in five games. In game one against the Surrey Falcons, North Island opened the scoring in the second period when Taylor Rose stepped out of the penalty box, took a pass from Julia Wing and potted the team’s first goal. Sarah Kendall earned the second assist. The Edge then went up 2-0 on a top-shelf goal by Danielle Poirier. The Falcons scored later in the period, but that was it as the Edge won 2-1.

The following day, the Edge played in another tight contest and tied the Kamloops Hellcats 1-1. Poirier scored the team’s lone goal from Kendall and Wing, while Gillian Ellsay and peewee affiliate Lisa Lloyd also played a strong game for North Island. In the North Island’s second game of the day, against the Vancouver Angels, the local girls opened the scoring in the first period on Kendall’s deflection of Briana Vandenberg’s one-timer from the blue line. The score remained 1-0 heading into the third when the Angels tied the game. But the goal inspired the Edge offence which broke loose for four straight goals en route to an impressive 5-1 victory. Goal scorers were Tara Dickson, Kendall, Wing and peewee affiliate Cassidy Bellavance,

with assists to Rose, Elaina Drewry, Kendall and Wing respectively. In the final game of the round-robin, the Edge faced the host team and undefeated Richmond Ravens. In a rough contest, North Island stood up to the older girls and held on for a 1-0 victory with Gjesdal earning the shutout. The victory gave North Island first overall, with Richmond placing second, and the two teams faced off again in the final. The championship match was scoreless through the first period. Midway through the second, Taylor Rose put the Edge on the scoreboard with a wrap-around goal from Talia Boschman. Then, with 12 seconds left in the game, birthday girl Emily Yates scored into an empty net for a 2-0 victory.
