Residential and business taxes will be going up this year to not only balance this year’s budget but to improve a bleak looking financial situation in 2012. Residential taxpayers will see their tax bill increase by four per cent while business taxes will rise by half a per cent, council decided Friday during its final day of budget discussions. On an average home, assessed at $268,000, that means an extra $39 per year. An average business, valued at $147,000, will see an increase of roughly $25 per year. All other tax sectors, including utilities, will not see any increase. Council had toyed with the possibility of raising residential taxes by as much as 13 per cent to help balance the budget but a number of cuts and draws from reserves allowed council to work with a smaller figure. “I think people will be very Continued on Page A2

Continued from Page 1 relieved at the small increase,” said Coun. Mary Storry. The first one per cent increase in residential taxes, which generates $147,000 for the city, will be used against the deficit for 2011. Dollars coming from the business tax increase, which generates $25,000 for the city, and the additional three per cent residential tax increase (441,639), will be put towards the deficit for 2012, which is expected to be worse than this year at $2.71 million. That was just a small part of a budget that not all councillors agreed on. Coun. Ziggy Stewart did not support the budget as he felt more could have been done to address the city’s tough financial position. “There’s a lot of

things going on and no one wants to address it. We’re just going in the wrong way and there’s something fundamentally wrong with what council’s doing right now,” said Stewart who wanted even more cuts to services. After increasing tax rates, council went to work chopping budgets in order to erase a $1.59 million deficit. R ive rc o r p ’s bu d get was the first to be slashed. InFilm ($50,000) and the Forestry Task Force ($40,500), which were previously funded through Rivercorp, will receive funds from council’s contingency fund this year, which allowed council to cut Rivercor p’s budget down to $470,180. A further $26,000 for the city’s portion of the cruise ship dock lease was also be taken out of the Rivercorp budget. “I’ve been involved

with Rivercorp for the past five years,” said Stewart. “The return on investment hasn’t been there. It hasn’t fulfilled my vision of what Rivercorp is supposed to be. I just can’t support them anymore.” Storry said the lack of support for Rivercorp runs deeper. “It’s not just council, the public’s lost faith,” said Storry. “The public has said we want these things to happen and we don’t think Rivercorp is the vehicle to do it.” The city also has to make up a $22,924 Rivercorp deficit. The RCMP budget was slashed by $36,519 in wages. Adams proposed the cut after discovering an extra staffer, a crime analyst, is not anticipated to begin work until May 1. Adams then went further, and decreased the city’s operations budget and the parks

3X8

and recreation departm e n t ’s bu d g e t by $260,000. “I’ve been repeatedly looking at how to reduce operating expenditures,” said Adams. “We need to have our house in order and we can’t continue to deplete our reserves. “We need to have some impact today (Friday) on the structural deficit. “The dollar amount isn’t a lot in the grand scheme of things but it’s a start.” Council also passed a motion for a review of all city department budgets to try and identify further reductions. Cuts to services, dipping into reserves and increasing taxes left the city with a surplus of $328,003, which will likely be put towards next year’s budget. Money taken out of reserves included: ■ $479,561 from the

Allowance for Assessment Appeals reserve to reduce the 2011 deficit. ■ $200,000 from the fleet replacement reserve to go towards the 2011 deficit. ■ $20,000 from the gaming reserve for a new RCMP finger printing machine. ■ $15,000 from the gaming reserve for Campbell River Creative Industries Council to set up a booth at a tourism and development convention. ■ $11,000 from the gaming reserve to Rivercorp for computers and a cash register. In addition, a library lighting retrofit was approved at $12,000 from the community works fund; $450,000 from the parks parcel tax will go towards improving Robron Park and $9,500 will go to the Laughing Willow Community Garden from the parks parcel tax.

Home owner fights off invader A man used a small rock pick hammer to fend off a thief climbing through his kitchen window. Campbell River RCMP say the home invasion occurred on Friday, around 2:45 a.m., in the 500 block of Rockland Rd. The home owner was awoken by the sound of the break-in, confronted the thief and hit him with the hammer before the culprit fled on foot. The resident then called 911 and Mounties showed up with the police dog. However, the dog lost the scent a few blocks away. Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

He was later released from custody on conditions, but on March 30, Johannson was arrested again for allegedly breaching his bail. Police say Johannson was a passenger in a vehicle and the male driver was found with cocaine. The driver cannot be named until he is charged. Police are recommending he be charged with trafficking. Johannson is

How to survive disaster is a valuable lesson ALISTAIR TAYLOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Emergency preparedness is on people’s minds these days. That seems to be evidenced by the popularity of the Strathcona Re gional District’s emergency preparedness seminars last Thursday. More than 50 people attended the evening session held at the Campbell River Search

and Rescue building in Willow Point and the morning session was just as full. Seminar presenter Howie Siemens was happy to see people taking responsibility for emergency planning. “Emergency planning is a shared responsibility,” Siemens said. “This is about you taking care of yourself as well. “How do you become

better prepared?” The theme of the night was taking personal responsibility for your own survival in an emergency for the first few hours or days. “If you’re well prepared, you may not have to depend on us in the first few hours and that would be a good thing,” Siemens said. A good thing because there are 57 potential

hazards facing British Columbia, although last week’s seminar focused on a handful of the largest and most likely events: earthquakes, fires, interface fires (forest fires encroaching on urban areas), tsunamis and severe weather. Not sur prisingly, given the devastating earthquake in Japan, the topic most on people’s minds is the threat of tsunami but

there was reassuring news on that front. “Our area, Campbell River, has a very low risk of a tsunami,” Siemens said. Speculation about “big event” earthquakes refers to the west coast of Vancouver Island where two geological plates interact undersea. An earthquake of magnitude 7 or larger raises the threat of a tsunami on the west

coast of the Island. O n the east coast of the Island, any tsunami will have been diminished by hitting the west coast and any residual wave will have had its force dissipated by distance and by the maze of islands in Johnstone Strait. The biggest tsunami possibility would be caused by a “mechanical” wave generated by a segment of rock shifted by an earth-

quake on the mainland on the east coast of Georgia Strait. How big that kind of wave would be is impossible to know at this stage, Siemens said. But the threat of tsunami is low and emergency plans will more likely have to respond to the other hazards. Emergency preparedness focuses on three steps that will get you through the first 72 hours of an event. Those steps are: Know the risks – Know the hazards your region faces; earthquakes in B.C., blizzards in Nunavut. Make a plan – A plan will help you and your family know what to do in case of an emergency, including if family members are apart at the time of an event. Get an emergency kit – Round up some basic supplies to be self-sufficient for at least 72 hours and keep them in an easily-accessible backpack.

Man accused of more domestic violence

10th Annual

PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A man with a history of domestic violence found himself back in jail. Mark Oleksiuk, 39, received a nine-month jail sentence last June after pleading guilty to two counts of assaulting his wife, failing to appear in court and breach of a court order. He also has another conviction for assaulting his former wife.

Xeriscaping program to teach about water-friendly gardening The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture Department and the Communities in Bloom Committee are pleased to be teaming up with Richard Barry to offer a program on xeriscaping at the end of April.

On Monday, in Campbell River provincial court, Oleksiuk was in the prisoner’s box for a bail hearing on new charges. He’s accused of assaulting his wife again and breaching a court order by contacting her. According to prosecutor Bruce Goddard, Oleksiuk ignored the court order because of a clerical error resulting in the misspelling of his wife’s name. “It’s was clear he was

to have no contact,” said Goddard. Then, in the early mor ning hours of M a r c h 2 1 , RC M P received a 911 call from his wife. The operator heard a woman screaming before the call was cut off. Police officers finally tracked down the call to an apartment on Birch Street where Oleksiuk was staying with a friend. The alleged victim was later found outside the residence

Xeriscaping refers to gardening in ways that reduce or eliminate the need for supplemental irrigation or landscaping with water conservation in mind. Richard Barry has 27 years of landscaping experience in both commercial and residential design and he is passionate about installing drought tolerant, low maintenance landscaping. In the xeriscape program, Richard

will share his knowledge of the seven principles of a beautiful garden, including: ■ Planning and design; Soil analysis; Appropriate plant selection; Practical turf areas; Efficient irrigation; Use of mulches; Appropriate maintenance The program takes place at the Community Centre, on April 30, from 10 a.m. to noon. The cost $15.

and told police she had been assaulted. However, according to defence lawyer Angie Penhall, Oleksiuk accuses his wife of being a drug addict

and the bumps on her head may have been self-inflicted. Goddard was seeking Oleksiuk’s detention, but Judge Brian Saunderson said he could be

released on bail. However, in order to get bail, Oleksiuk requires two sureties for $2,000 apiece. At press time, it’s unknown if he secured the sureties.

It’s time for behaviour to change at City Hall, says Walter Jakeway who is plotting to make that a reality. Jakeway is one of the driving forces behind the United Rate Payers Group that was initiated by Lorne Harron. The two men, who want to change how city government conducts itself, intend for the group to act as a watchdog on the actions of City Hall. Each have rented the

Community Centre out at their own expense to host the public in discussions around how city council can be more responsible with taxpayers’ money. “It’s not supposed to be a marathon meeting, we just do the agenda and then we have time at the end for people to network,” says Jakeway. Har ron adds the meetings are not for people to complain but instead to offer solutions. So far, the response has been good – 43 peo-

So far several people have shown interest in becoming a councillor, but no one for mayor,” says Jakeway. “We’re just disappointed they’re (city council) not doing better and we would like to

Wow! A tax refund – spend or save? 4x10

It’s great to get a tax refund, isn’t it? (Maybe not – but more on that later.) So, what are you going to do with it? You could spend it but then, it would just be … gone. In the interest of a long-term improvement to your personal ¿nancial picture, here are a few alternative tax refund uses to explore. RRSP it Make your 2011 RRSP contribution right now and you’ll get the bene¿t of nearly an extra year of potential long-term tax-deferred growth and a tax deduction against next year’s taxes. TFSA it You are allowed to save up to $5,000 a year in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). Your contributions are not tax-deductible but you will not be taxed on a cent of the investment income generated by your TFSA and you can recontribute any of your tax-free withdrawals in a future year. Invest it If your RRSP and TFSA are topped up, consider adding to your non-registered investments. It’s a sound strategy to hold stocks and equity mutual funds outside an RRSP or TFSA because these types of investments are taxed at a more favorable capital gains inclusion rate and Canadian investments qualify for the dividend tax credit.

hand pick candidates to help city council.” Harron says the message the group wants to get across to council is “to respect taxpayers and come up with some long and short-term goals to benefit the city of Campbell River.” Jakeway says council is out of control with its spending and is in too big a rush to make smart decisions. “Take the garbage issue,” says Jakeway. “They were in too big a rush and the 120-litre limit slipped through the cracks, there was so much talk about the one can and the weekly recycling but the volume limit never came up. In one meeting they sunk themselves.” He also cites the Highway 19A upgrade project as an example of making poor decisions. Now that the majority of the project is complete, emergency service provid-

ers have said it is difficult to maneuver their vehicles around all the traffic because of the rock islands down the centre of the highway. “Putting obstacles in the way just doesn’t make sense. Just learn from your mistakes, but they don’t,” says Jakeway, who feels change has been a long time coming. “I think we need to change council to get them to behave the way we want, we need to pick people who think the way we do and get them elected,” he says. “If we’re going to change the way it behaves, we have to change the people.” Jakeway and Harron are encouraging anyone interested in the United Rate Payers to come to their next meeting, April 27 at the Community Centre, 7 p.m. For more information e-mail riverflow2011@gmail.com.

Scouring the world for more students KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

School District 72 staff have been all over the world – but it’s no vacation. They’re working to recruit students. District employees have been attending a number of overseas fairs, along with other school districts, for the past three years to meet with agents and parents who are interested in sending their children abroad. “It’s by no means a holiday,” says Tom Longridge, superintendent of instruction. “The trips involve very intensive, 12-hour days where you’re bouncing from city to city.” Longridge says staff spend the majority of its time at the recruitment fair, where they man a booth and walk around with pamphlets promoting Campbell River. Sometimes the district’s presentation also involves a Power Point slide show. Longridge credits the program as a success, increasing the student population in light of declining enrolment and bringing in much needed revenue for a school district on a stretched budget. “We’ve been very cautious about the program and made sure the costs don’t exceed what we’re bringing in,” says Longridge. “We haven’t incurred any cost to the budget with the program – we more than broke even this year.” T h i s y e a r, t h e

school district has spent $29,719 attending recruitment fairs with another roughly $18,000 to be spent on upcoming recruitment trips but Longridge says the 22 international students who attended schools in Campbell River generated $184,000 for the school district through international student fees. The cost for one overseas student to attend a local school is $11,500 per year but that will increase to $12,000 a year in the 20011/12 school year. In 2008, the first year of the program, the district had four overseas students attend school in Campbell River and in 2009, that increased to 21 students. Long ridge points out that not all students stayed an entire school year, many only committed to two or three-month terms. He noted this year, though, students are staying for longer periods of time. School district staff have travelled to China, Hong Kong, Germany, Korea and Taiwan looking for students but the majority of international students coming to Campbell River have been from Korea. The district has a strong relationship with Sokcho in Korea. “They send about 10 kids a year for two months so that the students can visit and experience a Canadian education,” says Longridge.

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

Council drafts budget, like it or not So, after $77,000 janitors and $84,500 deputy clerks injected more than sufficient outrage in Campbell River voters, city council drafted up their 2011 budget. The final result is a four per cent We say: City residential tax increase and a halffinancial plan for per cent business tax increase. After threats of up to a 13 per cent 2011 not likely to increase in taxes, the four per cent looks less drastic. Of course, there please anybody are people who are going to say four per cent is too much but to expect no increase in your taxes is far too unrealistic.

There’s a train of thought amongst at least some voters that a tax increase could be prevented by sufficient cuts to wasteful spending. But defining wasteful spending is a political exercise that more senior levels of government would seek a mandate to conduct – i.e., run an election on it with full disclosure of what exactly that means. The aforementioned employee contract-mandated custodial position is one example people will immediately point to and that’s fine, if voters want to micro-manage the city budget they can go ahead. In the meantime, Campbell River needs an operating budget for the next year. A mix of cuts

and a tax increase is really the only way to go. The financial position of the city is dire now that the pulp mill cash cow is gone and to prevent the four per cent increase, services would have been cut drastically. Do all residents have the stomach for that? Perhaps, that’s what we should do. There’s a municipal election in October, voters can elect candidates who are willing to drastically change the way cities are run. But before anybody starts hacking and slashing city operations, they had better fully research the impact it has on delivering the quality of life residents expect. A city’s job is still to deliver services, not elminate them.

Good point: Budget So, the city clerk had to come in while on holidays to sign a document – and we are on the hook for $84,000. Is there something in the water? Where is the leadership? What if, God forbid, he had been incapacitated, would city business been halted until his return? There must be another reason to hire a deputy but if this is the only reason then we are in bigger trouble then I thought. Perhaps a temporary “acting deputy” could be appointed to cover or else a cheque writing machine could be bought for far less. I’m sure that the clerks in other jurisdictions don’t manually sign all documents. The other concern is with the problems at the Community Centre. I am aghast that any health and safety committee would suggest that a custodian, without the required training, would be forced to enter such a risky situation. Surely one would recommend that temporary competent security officers be hired at far less cost to cover the worst times. If they or off duty Mounties were there, then it would become known and those drunks and ne’er-do-wells would stay away. Of course, if this problem exists seven nights a week, then there is a bigger problem that adding another custodian would not be able to solve. By far, however, my biggest concern is how much we are now paying Mr. Paul to continue working now that Mr. Laidlaw is in place. By the way, the reason that airports were downContinued on A11

B.C. history came to a halt with the last spike

Paul Rudan No, really

Back in the day, we were under the impression there wasn’t a lick of history west of the Rocky Mountains. But what did we know? We were just another class of Ontario public school stiffs being spoon-fed the historic pablum from teachers who believed in teaching history as dryly as possible. In the seventh grade, our history/geography teacher stoically informed the class that Vancouver was on Vancouver Island and Victoria was on the mainland. “Um, sir,” I interjected. “It’s the other way around.” After staring daggers into me for a few seconds, he grabbed the atlas and looked for himself. And upon learning the truth, he stared more daggers into my heart.

That’s the way it goes in middle school when some smart-aleck knowit-all shows up the teacher. Anyhow, all we really learned about the West came from a single black and white photograph taken in the 1800s. It showed a bunch of sombre-looking men in funeral-like suits and stovepipe hats – surrounded by the working stiffs – pounding in the last spike of the Canadian Pacific Railway. And once the rail line was completed, there was nothing further to be gained by learning ANYTHING about B.C.’s history. After all, we were living in the heartland of the country, the birthplace of good and corrupt government, and the history book writers were under order of death to not write ANYTHING that

was remotely interesting, especially if it happened outside Ontario or Quebec. Well, there was the rebellion in Upper Canada which, if I recall correctly, was taught to us every year from Grade 7 to graduation. It was much later when I fully understood that it never was much of rebellion rather than a bunch of drunken farmers on Younge Street waving pitchforks, or something like that. In Toronto, that single incident became a historic event. Later, I learned that similar “rebellions” took place every Friday night in just about every watering hole in B.C. But that was expected of the Wild West and hardly worth mentioning in the holy tablets of Canadian history. You might say I was somewhat

surprised to find out there was an inkling of West Coast history after I moved to the Island. Who knew that great Indian nations ruled the coast for thousands of years? Or that the world powers of the 18th century, Spain and England, met in truly historic occasion off Nootka Island? I never knew and the same goes for millions of other history students inflicted with copious volumes of Canada’s “true history.” These days I wonder what history students are learning. I hope it’s something interesting which will help them understand something meaningful and lasting. Then again, they’re probably memorizing the names of today’s great leaders. In other words, the founders of Google and Facebook.


OPINION

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 2011

Most displeased with council’s performance Filed for publication with the Mirror: Hello Mayor and Council, I begin this unfortunate rant with a question: to each of you I request that you publish in either of the local papers a short commentary describing to the population that elected you what you believe are your responsibilities as a city councillor in the City of Campbell River. I am most displeased with the performance of city council. I have watched with utter dismay and contempt as you pass over any opportunity to constrain the relentless waste of tax dollars at City Hall. Please explain how you can absolve yourselves of the responsibility to review City Hall hiring decisions. City Hall is out of control. At last count

we have 34 managers – – do each of you know what all of these managers do? Have you ever stopped to wonder why there are so many managers in city hall? What do they do? How many staff do they have? What discretion over city resources do they have? Can any of them work the lights on Dogwood? To put things in perspective, we have 24 police constables, including supervisors, – to provide a 24 hour a day, seven days a week service, unlike City Hall which is arguably a seven-hours-a-day, five-days-a-week organization. City Hall has clearly demonstrated that it is not capable of practicing restraint and exercising fiscal prudence in difficult economic times. A city is a business and should be run as such. Our city is

run more like a garage sale. In the face of massive shortfalls in revenue, why has there been no rationalization and downsizing at City Hall? It would seem to be quite reasonable to rationalize the organization at City Hall in these difficult times. Being that most (all?) decisions are made by a consultant, I would expect that many of these positions could be eliminated. To make a point here I remind you that it seems that in spite of having a city council of seven and a city management staff of 34 we still need to hire a consultant to “evaluate” the Catalyst waterfront for a potential garbage dump site. With an increasing residential tax base (how many houses per year?), it is not unreasonable to expect that taxes should go down,

yet somehow in this fine city we find ourselves, after a decade of residential and retail expansion, with a tax shortfall and a dilapidated infrastructure. It is not fiscally prudent to spend millions of dollars on less than two kilometres of highway (turning it into a boardwalk with no parking and no room for emergency vehicles) and ignore the rest of the city. There is likely an equal number of young

families with limited income and seniors on a fixed income that should not be taxed out of their homes to fund an irresponsible city. Please do your part or excuse yourself from your station such that someone with the necessary qualifications can fulfil the role of city councillor – $77,000 for an additional janitor at the sportsplex should be the tip of the iceberg. Mike Landers Campbell River

Start teaching your children responsibility To parents within a mile or so radius of the Museum At Campbell River, Your children hang out at night at the Museum and smashed two plexiglass windows sheltering the logging truck. Once again those of us who support the Museum see our donations wasted on the stupid actions of your mindless teens. Start being responsible. B. Caldwell

Budget: Please tell me it was an April Fool’s joke Continued from A10 loaded by the feds was that they were a drain on the federal government – an airport

commission will not change that. Of course the oldest trick in the budget book is to put out these

kinds of items to be cut while not acting on other items and patting ones self on the back that the budget

was resolved. Oops, I just noticed that the date of the paper is April 1. Hopefully this is an April

COMING EVENTS 3rd AUTISM Vancouver Biennial Congress, April 7-9 2011, early bird rates! Learn from 18 renowned autism experts presenting new information that can help immediately! www.AutismVancouver.com

Orthopaedic surgeon, pilot, mentor, history buff, and awesome â&#x20AC;&#x153;JDâ&#x20AC;?, passed away peacefully at home on April 2, 2011, with his beloved wife, Rosamund, by his side. Survived by sons James (Lisa) and Ian, their mother Beverly Ann, and step-daughter Carolyn (William). Grandpa John to Hunter. Brother of Douglas and the late David and will be sorely missed by all of the Reed family. Eldest son of the late John Donald and Marjorie Catherine (Shea), John was born in St. Catharines on November 27, 1934. Obtaining his MD at UofT in 1961 he went on to a residency in orthopaedics and received his Specialist CertiďŹ cate in 1967. After travelling to Glasgow, Scotland, and Europe as a McLaughlin Travelling Fellow, he returned to practice at the Toronto General Hospital where he remained until the Department of Orthopaedics was moved to the Toronto Western site in 1991. During this time he became an Assistant Professor, teaching medical students and clinical clerks, and training future orthopaedic surgeons. In 1967 he also obtained his private pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license and went on to receive a Class I Commercial license. He combined his love of both orthopaedics and ďŹ&#x201A;ying by travelling to out-reach clinics at the Temiskaming Hospital, New Liskeard, much to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;delight/dismayâ&#x20AC;? of numerous residents. Leaving Toronto in 2002, he and Rosamund ďŹ&#x201A;ew the plane across Canada to a new practice in Campbell River, BC, where he enjoyed both the work and the scenery. John will be missed by his friends and colleagues, especially members of the Pennal Orthopaedic Society, and his cousins Eleanor (Mike) Cox and George (Genevieve) Graham. We will always remember his sense of humour and the twinkle in his eye! In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers donations to the Canadian Orthopaedic Association, the Campbell River Hospital Foundation, or the Temiskaming Hospital would be appreciated. A Celebration to honor the life of Dr. John Graham will be held on Wednesday April 6th 2011 at the Dolphins Discovery Resort, 4125 Discovery Drive, Campbell River, BC V9W 4X6 at 3.00pm. A reception will follow the celebration. Messages of condolences for the family may be left at www.suttonsfuneralhome.com

Veronica and Vernon’s Closet Are you a young person between the ages of 12 and 19? Would you like a new-to-you outfit for free? The John Howard Society of North Island (JHSNI) invites you to drop by the Activity Centre at the Campbell River Community Centre on Monday, April 11 from 3:30-6:30 p.m. for Veronica and Vernon’s Closet. Veronica and Vernon’s Closet is an event offering free clothing, shoes, and accessories for male and female youth. Hair styling and other “glam services” will also be offered for those who want to enhance their new look. A friendly barista will make specialty coffee drinks. “Many teens cannot afford to purchase clothing for job interviews and other situations requiring a ‘dress for success’ approach,” said JHSNI Youth Outreach Worker Karen Robertson, who is organizing Veronica and Vernon’s Closet. “Our plan is to help youth increase their self-confidence by offering them a new outfit, haircut, and other ‘glam services’ at no charge.” If you can donate clothing, please contact Karen at 250-286-0611 or karen@jhsni.bc.ca.

NDP aims to bring back ‘90s It’s the most shopworn cliché of the B.C. Liberal government, one that for years has induced eye-rolling in the legislature press gallery. The dark decade, the dismal decade, the decade of destruction, cabinet ministers have chanted since 2001. The 1990s, when investment, jobs and people packed up and headed for the B.C. border in response to the NDP gover nments of Mike Harcourt and Glen Clark. As the NDP leadership candidates near the end of their marathon run of debates, the front-runners are fighting to turn that around. Vancouver-Kingsway MLA Adrian Dix makes a statistical case with his usual intensity: B.C.’s economic growth averaged around three per cent per year during the 1990s, and only two per cent during the supposedly prosperous decade of Gordon Campbell. This mainly demonstrates what former premier Bill Bennett observed: B.C. is a small resource economy whose prosperity is largely at the mercy of world markets. All a B.C. government can do is create conditions that help or hinder economic growth. And there is little doubt that NDP governments of the 1990s hindered it, with taxes that caused miners to flee, choking forest regulations to appease urban environmentalists, and tantrums aimed at both the Canadian and U.S. governments. Today’s NDP has no

coherent energy policy, support jobs, and reconand has recanted oppo- structing the small porsition to the carbon tax tion of the unionized and has said all power health monopoly broken up by the projects are Campbell govevil unless ernment. they’re NDP frontshackled to runner Mike a unionized Farnworth also government scor ned the monopoly. “ re t h e r m e d ” The NDP hospital food candidates’ that is part of r e c e n t Tom Fletcher the effort to health care B.C.

local food for hospital patients, which sounds nice but can only add costs. The health care crisis is bad and getting worse. If all the NDP can do is whine about “Tim Hortons medicine” and wave an organic carrot, I suspect Tommy Douglas wouldn’t be impressed. Now the NDP strains to look ahead, but sees only the past.

Opportunity for Public Comment On Ferry Commission’s Preliminary Price Cap Decision

301 St. Ann’s Road Campbell River, BC, V9W 4C7 Telephone: 250-286-5700 Email: collecƟƟon@campbellriver.ca

The British Columbia Ferry Commission, the independent regulator of BC Ferries Services Inc. (BCFS), is seeking public comment on its preliminary decision on price caps for the company’s next performance term that begins April 1, 2012. Price caps, which are determined and enforced by the Commission, set the maximum permitted level of average ferry fares. The Commission’s preliminary decision, which includes a target for future productivity gains and reflects reductions in BCFS’ annual operating costs, is as follows: >

a 4.15% increase in average ferry fares on April 1 of each year from 2012 to 2015 on the major routes from the lower mainland to Vancouver Island and to the Sunshine Coast;

>

an 8.23% increase per year in average ferry fares on all other routes.

The Commission’s preliminary decision may be amended depending on further submissions by BCFS and possible changes to the Coastal Ferry Services Contract (CFSC) between BCFS and the Provincial Government. The Commission will make its final ruling by September 30, 2011 after consideration of such further submissions by BCFS, any substantive changes to the CSFC and public feedback. The public is invited to comment on the Commission’s preliminary price cap decision, as well as on the information provided to the Commission by BCFS including their annual and quarterly reports and/or any other information on the Commission’s website that relates to the commissioner’s powers and duties to establish price caps for the next performance term. The public is also invited to comment on the levels of ferry service under the existing CFSC or on possible service level changes identified by BCFS as opportunities to enhance efficiency. For further information, visit www.bcferrycommission.com. Comments can be e-mailed to info@bcferrycommission.com or mailed to BC Ferry Commission, RPO Hillside, Box 35119, Victoria BC, V8T 5G2. Deadline for comments or submissions is June 30, 2011.

Fefe Dobson sticks to her guns KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Fresh off the release of her latest album, pop rocker Felicia Fefe’ Dobson, 24, is back and better than ever. After releasing her debut album in 2003, the Scarborough, Ontario native hit a roadblock and, seven years later unveiled her second album, Joy, which spawned the hits Ghost and Stuttering, which have both spent time on the music charts. On Monday, the Mirror caught up by phone with Dobson in Saskatoon at the start of her 16-day tour that crosses Canada and makes a pit stop in Las Vegas. Dobson brings her already sold out show to the Tidemark Theatre April 15. Mirror: It’s been said that on your new album, Joy, you are embracing your roots. What does that mean? Fefe Dobson: Basically the whole concept of that comment is that I got to make a record independently without anyone telling me what to do and I was allowed to express myself freely and stick to my guns. I was allowed to be me and create. M: You now have three singles in rotation on Canadian radio. Why do you think people have embraced this album? FD: It’s been awhile since I released new material and I’m fortunate to have a lot of great, loyal fans who have been patient enough to wait for new music. I’m just enjoying myself and having fun and I think that comes through in my music. M: Why was your 2006, second album Sunday Love, never released? FD: It was never released because my label (Island Def Jam) and I split up because of musical differences and me having to find

worked hard with and got recognition from – just being signed by a label is a big thing, I was signed when I was just 17 – it was hard. Like any break-up it’s hard to get settled afterwards and I had to get my mind together and get inspired. I had friends that I called up, who are very creative, and I brought them together to sit down at the table to get back to creating music. Also seeing Miley Cyrus cover my song Start All Over and Jordin Sparks covering Don’t Let It Go to Your Head made me excited and inspired and made me think ‘you are noticed for having talent and don’t give up on yourself.’” M: Where did your inspiration for the tracks on Joy, come from? FD: It’s a lot about liberations and love, lots about love. M: Is Stuttering based on a real-life experience? FD: Oh for sure. My biggest fear in a relationship is someone lying and cheating.

M: Did you have any musical idols growing up? FD: Growing up, I lived in a musically diverse home. My mom religiously played Bob Marley, Martin Gaye and ABBA. My big sister listened to Guns ‘N Roses and Nirvana and I just soaked all of that up and all those artists have influenced me in day-to-day life. I listened to the Doors, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and Johnny Cash while I was making my album. M: What do you think makes you unique and sets you apart from other artists? FD: You know, I’m a different person. I have a different way of speaking and a different way or writing. I’m Felicia Dobson, I’m not anyone else.

Cup tune-up

Michael Park is sent sprawling to the pitch by Carey Cordecedo during a soccer friendly on March 27 at Carihi. But Park and his Marine Harvest U18 teammates settled the score by dumping the Comox Men’s Select team 5-0. This Sunday, Marine Harvest plays its biggest game of the season when they host the Chilliwack Storm in the Coastal Cup quarter-final. Game time is 2 p.m. at Willow Point Park.

Carihi girls hope to continue winning ways The Carihi Tyees tuned up for their home tournament by winning the “Best of the Best” tourney in Chilliwack last Friday. The senior girls soccer team captured the title with a 1-0 shootout victory over South K a m l o o p s, s e t t i n g themselves up for the 16th annual Investors Challenge. The action begins Thursday with Timberline facing Gulf Islands at Willow Point Park at 9:30 a.m. Then at 11 a.m., on the Carihi field, the Tyees take on the defending B.C. Triple-A champs from

Claremont. “We have a team that is filled with junior players and this game will provide valuable experience that we can take forward for the rest of the season,” said Carihi coach John Jepson. The championship game kicks off Friday at Carihi at 1:30 p.m. Last Thursday in Chilliwack, Carihi started the Best of the Best tournament with a 5-2 win over Sutherland of North Vancouver. Tyees’ goalie Haley Craddock made a couple of spectacular saves early on while the

offence was led by Ayla Akehurst and Eilidh “Razza” Rasmussen who scored two goals apiece. Taylor Marsh also capitalized on a superb cor ner kick from Carrie Gage. The Tyees were challenged in game two against host the school. Weather conditions made the field very muddy and despite both teams trying to play a “passing game” the field condition made a mockery of such efforts. Carihi opened the scoring on a fine inswinging corner by Jamie Tillapaugh. But

Chilliwack responded just prior to the half to tie the match 1-1. The second half saw a much-improved performance by the Tyees and they were able to hold Chilliwack to a tie. In doing so, Carihi secured first place on their side of the pool due to goal differential. In the semi-final on Friday morning, the Tyees faced a strong and well-coached team from Ballenas of Parksville. It was a well-balanced contest and Ballanas had a number of decent chances, but

keeper Craddock stood strong. The Tyees also had a number of opportunities to score but couldn’t find the net. It took a superb solo effort from Razz to open the scoring. She picked up the ball up at the halfway line and showed nimble footwork and a great turn of pace before slotting the ball into the bottom corner of the net. Ballanas was strong up front and it took some top quality defending by Kelly Wunderlich, Nicole Burns, Joceyln Cormier and Talise Lindenbach to keep them from

scoring. Despite a few anxious scares at the close of the game, Carihi held the slim 1-0 lead and advanced to the final against South Kamloops. Again, it was a very close affair with Carihi shading possession in the first half and South Kamloops pressing more in the second. But, once again, Craddock stood strong in net for the Tyees and made a number of critical one-on-one saves. Carihi also received strong play from Continued on Page A31

During his first trip to the karate nationals in 2009, Campbell River’s Kyell Erickson came home empty-handed. However, the 15-year-old did leave with experience which proved invaluable on March 24-28, in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, were he earned two bronze medals. Competing in the cadet 14-15 advanced/black belt division, Erickson placed third in kumite (sparring) and helped Team B.C. to a bronze in team sparring. Earning the two bronze was great for Erickson, but if he had placed first or second, he would have qualified for Team Canada which is heading to the Pan American Championships in Brazil in September. Erickson started karate at the age of four at the Shitoryu Club on 9th Avenue. The club is instructed by Roy Tippenhauer.

As the Vancouver Canucks stood on the blueline waiting for the singing of the national anthem a round of applause broke out. But the cheers weren’t for them – the fans were clapping for a young girl from Campbell River. Madison Oke, 10, had the thrill of a lifetime March 16, when the Canucks took on the Colorado Avalanche. Oke skated laps with the Canucks during the pre-game skate and stood beside members of her favourite hockey team during the anthems. “It was the best time of my life,” Oke said of the experience. “It was really exciting to skate with the Canucks.” Although having everyone’s attention on her as her face lit up the Jumbotron – and her name was announced over the loud speaker at Rogers Arena – was nerve racking. “I was a little bit nervous to have a lot of people looking at me.” The Campbell River Minor Hockey player,
