Ramp closed again KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Ken Forde Boat Ramp is closed to boaters again after a brief opening last month. The free public boat launch, one of just two in the community, is once again littered with debris and inaccessible. The city first cleared Ken Forde in late June after receiving approval from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to remove the approximately 300 cubic metres of gravel that clogged the boat ramp. The material was transferred to beach front just north of Rotary Park to replenish the eroded shore and Sea Walk. Continued on A3 RENÉE ANDOR/THE MIRROR

Painted piano to liven up downtown RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Downtown Campbell River will soon be home to a brightly coloured piano, which the public can use for free. The Downtown BIA came up with the idea to have a piano

downtown after seeing the same thing in Austin, Texas, and other places in the United States. “It should be a neat thing,” said Erika Anderson, chair of the BIA. “We’re always looking for new things to try to add some colour and some vibrancy (to downtown).”

This piano isn’t just any old piano either; it will be painted by a group of artists under the supervision of local artist John Bailey, during Art Appreciation Day at Spirit Square. The event happens from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. this Saturday. Bailey said although the theme

Ramp: Gravel washes over breakwater and impedes the launch while waiting to redistribute the material to another site. A timeline for how long the city may have to wait to receive the green light for removal is unknown. The previous application, to relocate gravel to the Rotary Beach area, was the city’s last request to go through the Campbell River Department of Fisheries office before application processing was centralized in Nanaimo. “This change in process makes it impossible to predict the application approval process timeline,” Milnthor p said. “I am confident that the Nanaimo office will do their best to process our application as fast as possible.” As much of a nuisance the gravel is to boaters, the material is, at the same time, an asset. “It’s actually pre-

And within the next couple of weeks it will be placed downtown… somewhere. During days with nice weather, the piano will be on display in various downtown locations, and Anderson encourages people to keep an eye out for it – and for musicians to play a tune or two. “I hope that some skilled musicians will come downtown and sit down for a while,”

she said. Each night it will be brought in to avoid vandalism, and Anderson says she hopes people will respect the piano. “There is always a chance that it will be vandalized – that’s always a possibility – but we’re just going to have faith in people,” said Anderson. Anderson also said it may not be perfectly in tune all the time. “Probably with being moved, and changing air and moisture conditions, it’s not likely to be in tune for

very long,” explained Anderson. “But this is just for fun.” The piano cost $75 from the ReStore, and was paid for by Remax Realty. And the paint was bought by Coho Books. Anderson says the main aim of the inexpensive project is to showcase art in the downtown area. “It’ll be a nice piece of public art for the rest of the summer,” said Anderson. The BIA plans to ‘play things by ear’ in regards to the piano’s future.

continue to use the material that clogs the ramps to nourish starved city beaches, Milnthorp said. The city and Department of Fisheries and

Oceans are working to develop a pre-approved schedule for moving material at both the Ken Forde and Big Rock boat ramps each spring to pre-determined locations in need of restoration. That agreement would hopefully allow the city to have the boat ramps cleared out by the start of summer. “We appreciate the community’s patience while we work to get this plan in place,” Milnthorp said. “Boat ramp maintenance must meet acceptable foreshore habitat management regulations, and the long-ter m plans we are developing will help us get the boat ramps open earlier in years to come.” The city’s other free public launch, Big Rock Boat Ramp, and a boat launch at Discovery Harbour ($10 fee per use) both remain open.

Continued from A10 The ramp, located across the street from Rona, then reopened to boaters the first week of July but was only operational for about three weeks. “Since that time, gravel that had accumulated on the riprap breakwater on the south side of the launch has been washed over the breakwater and into the launch,” said Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. “We estimate there is approximately 50 to 75 cubic metres of material, a fraction of what was in the launch in June, but enough to make the launch unusable.” Now the city has to begin the application process all over again, as Fisheries regulations stipulate the city cannot remove debris without approval nor can it stockpile gravel

MLA wants VIHA to reverse its decision on mobile MRI KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Vancouver Island Health Authority’s (VIHA) decision to not provide mobile M R I s e r v i c e s at Campbell River hospital is devastating to the medical community, says North Island MLA Claire Trevena. She said VIHA’s course of action will negatively impact hospital staff as well as the several thousands of people who live in region. “The sudden announcement that VIHA does not plan to proceed with the establishment of this new service will inevitably impact recruitment and retention of radiologists in Campbell River and the Comox Valley, at a time when the two communities are awaiting their

two new hospitals,” Trevena said in a letter to Health Minister Mike de Jong, co-written by Doug Routley, Cowichan Valley MLA. “It has been described by some in the medical community as ‘devastating’ and ‘as if the rug were pulled from under us.’” VIHA sought a fiveyear contract for 2,500 scans per year with a mobile service that would rotate between three or four locations, moving one or two times each month between Campbell River, Comox Valley and Cowichan Valley hospitals. But following a review of six proposals, VIHA decided not to award a contract to the external provider. “The cost for an external mobile service would be over

$600 per MRI scan; VIHA’s cost is approximately $250 per scan done on a site that has an existing MRI,” said a release from VIHA issued last Thursday. “Given this difference, VIHA has decided not to award a contract and will instead provide 22,764 MRI scans in-house this year, an increase from the 21,740 MRI scans that were performed in 2010/11 and 18,526 scans performed in 2009/10.” But Trevena doesn’t believe cost was the sole deciding factor. “It is disingenuous for the health authority to use cost as an excuse when it must have known that when starting its RFP (Request for Proposals) process, that the cost would be higher for a mobile MRI than

a static one. “We would hope that you would act on behalf of all the people on Vancouver Island, who expect equity in health care

provision, and ask that VIHA reverse its decision,” Trevena and Routley wrote in their joint letter to de Jong. Trevena said the benefits of having the mobile MRI services would be great. “It will reduce wait times for the approximate 3,000 people a

year who, at present, have to travel a great distance to have the MRI,” she said. “It will also reduce their travel cost and save them a great deal of time.” She added radiologists across the Island were strongly in favour of the mobile services to complement the existing, permanent services in Nanaimo and Victoria. VIHA said over the past 18 months wait times for MRI scans, a specialized technology which uses magnetic and radio waves, have decreased. The average wait time for an MRI scan in Victoria is approximately 10 weeks, down from 27 weeks in July 2010 and about 16 weeks in Nanaimo, down from 32 weeks a year ago, according to the news release.

Rebates offered for waterwise The Strathcona Regional District is offering two water efficiency rebate programs in an effort to reduce water use among home owners. The pilot programs give utility rebates on the purchase of new eligible toilets, rain barrels or cisterns to qualifying applicants. Applicants must be registered home owners of legal dwelling units and must not be serviced by private wells.

Toilet Rebate Program Flushing the toilet accounts for approximately 30 per cent of indoor household

water use. Replacing a 13 litre toilet with a dual flush (usually three litre and six litre) or high-efficiency (4.8L) toilet will reduce indoor water use by approximately 18 per cent. Home owners who purchase one of these types of toilets can apply for up to two $75 rebates through the Regional District. Applicants must present a sales receipt for a new high efficiency or dual flush toilet confirming purchase completed July 1, 2011 or later and must have a disposal receipt for each toilet for which a rebate is being applied for. These can be obtained by dispos-

ing of your old toilet at Campbell River dump, on Argonaut Road.

Rain Barrel/ Cistern Rebate Program Water consumption is about three times higher during the summer, mainly related to lawn watering. Using a rain barrel or cistern to collect rainwater can promote more efficient use of water in the yard. Every millimetre of rain on a square metre roof can result in a harvest of one litre of water. The average annual rainfall in Campbell River during the month of July is 44 mm.

Have your say

A $50 rebate is available on the purchase of a 150L to 499L capacity rain barrel and for cisterns, with 500L or greater capacity, applicants can be rebated $150. Applicants must submit the original sales receipt dated July 1,2011 or later as well as a clear photograph of the installed rain barrel/cistern. There is a maximum rebate of one per property. The rain barrel/cistern must be manufactured, be connected to a roof gutter down pipe and have a screen mesh and/or lid covering the opening to ensure animals, bugs and debris cannot get inside. Applications for both

programs are available at the Strathcona Regional District office (103-990 Cedar Street) or online at www. strathconard.ca Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis while funds last. To submit an application drop it off in person at the Regional District office or mail it to: Utility Rebate Program Community Services Department, Strathcona Regional District, 301-990 Cedar Street, Campbell River, BC., V9W 7Z8.

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

What to do about boat ramps? The Ken Forde Ramp is closed once again while the city pursues permission from Fisheries and Oceans Canada to remove gravel and debris from the boat launch. While the foreshore is finally We say: Perhaps receiving its due as a sensitive vis a vis the impacts we need a public habitat imposed on it via development, we wonder if this might be going boat ramp a little overboard. The ramp was strategy closed earlier this year while a plan was worked out to find a place to take the debris built up during wave action on the shoreline. The beach is correctly being seen now as habitat and not

just a border between land and sea. The removal and deposition of material is not being done with callous disregard for impact on the environment as has been the practice here and elsewhere in the past. So, while the “red tape” is undoubtedly frustrating to boaters and city staff, it demonstrates a justifiable sensitivity. The city is developing a long term foreshore strategy to naturalize the waterfront as much as possible. Our past practices of building on the foreshore and barricading it with tons of rip-rap have become obsolete. We stand to inherit a natural and living shoreline as a consequence. One benefit will be the positive impact on salmon, which is certainly not

lost on the residents of this community. Perhaps these boat ramps need to be revisited as a concept. Should we have them on the foreshore – on the outer shoreline, at the very least? Heresy? Some will see it as such. Boaters and anglers are seen as an economic benefit to the community and residents see the free ramps almost as a God-given right. But times change and new ideas are needed. Should taxpayers’ dollars go towards maintenance of free boat ramps? User-pay? Is there somewhere else that can accommodate access to the water? Time to ask questions. Do we want to hear the answers?

Good point: Vitality Ed. note: This letter was originally published in the Squamish Chief newspaper. We reprint it here with permission as an outsider’s perspective. It is with dismay that I read about the loss of Yiannis, and the string of other (Squamish) businesses that have closed downtown in recent months (“Recent downtown business closures eyed,” Chief, July 22). Recently a longtime client invited me and my family to Campbell River to set up a small home office. I was struck by the beauty of the place, which I had not visited for many years. But more than that, I was impressed by the affordability. Campbell River is just over twice the size of Squamish, at 32,000 people. Its trading area is almost twice that. Its downtown core is clean and pleasant, if not extravagant. The scenery is outstanding. Given these things, I felt certain the cost of living there would meet or exceed that of Squamish. I was wrong. Living in Squamish and spending almost 95 per cent of my time here, I think I’d forgotten how life was outside the bubble. You can buy a house in Campbell River for around $250,000 or less. A house! With ocean views! But there was something else that wowed me. Commercial space in much of the downtown there costs almost half what it is compared to here. This got me thinking about the steady march of businesses I’ve seen opening and closing downtown. Continued on A9

Combining two centres could create tourism synergy

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

Sometimes things just make a lot of sense. I was intrigued by the proposal to merge the Visitor Centre and the Maritime Heritage Centre (MHC). You have two adjacent facilities that are among Campbell River’s biggest tourism draws and you have a proposal to move the tourism promotion function – primarily the Visitor Centre – into one of those two facilities. The Maritime Heritage Society (MHS) board wants to create a tourism focal point by moving the Visitor Centre into the MHC. As Kristen Douglas reported Wednesday, the president of the MHS, Marv Everett, says moving the Visitor Centre into the MHC will provide for a more central and accessible point for tourists.

There’s a certain synergy that would be created because both facilities would support each other. Visitors seeking information would take a few minutes to visit the MHC and wander out onto the Discovery Pier. Makes a lot of sense to me. As it is now, the Visitor InfoCentre is connected to the Art Gallery and there certainly would be a loss of spillover traffic into the exhibits and gift store in the gallery. I wonder if the gallery could use the whole building vacated by the InfoCentre? Then there’s the loss of traffic into the Tyee Plaza which I’m sure would be missed. It’s certainly a plan that is not without impact on other parts of the downtown. But on the other hand, the Tyee Plaza is benefitting from the Spirit Square and the great job Jim Creigh-

ton is doing to make that a lively focal point of downtown. So, maybe they could give up a little something. Now, there is some challenges with diverting tourists to the MHC/Discovery Pier. One of the biggest being trying to get huge RVs into the parking lot there. The lot’s plenty big enough it’s just turning off the Old Island Highway into it that would be a challenge. Although, I’m sure it could be widened to accommodate them. There’s also the Sunday morning Farmer’s Market which Everett has proposed could be moved from the MHC to the Tyee Plaza where there’s actually more room. Everybody knows that the MHC parking lot fills up pretty quick and that parking spills out along the Island High-

way’s Pier St. area. Which brings up another issue. The Farmer’s Market was started by the Pier St. merchants to attract people to their area, of course. Losing them to the Tyee Plaza area would probably not be popular. Conversely, though, they would get all that tourist traffic that theoretically goes to the Shoppers Row/Tyee Plaza area. Although, I wonder how much spill off there is from tourists visiting the Visitor Centre and the adjacent shops. I could see visitors deciding to wander onto the pier once they’re out of their RVs (it might be kind of nerve-wracking pulling in there so they won’t be in a rush to get back in their motorhomes to drive out).

OPINION

FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 2011 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

FOLLOW US ON...

Downtown Campbell River felt alive will choose to go elsewhere. We are a beautiful place to live, but we are just one jewel in the dazzling crown that is British Columbia. There are other places in our wonderful province to be, places where the cost of living and doing business isn’t so onerous. Campbell River has four times our economic base and half the costs of doing business — that gives it an edge. You can make a go of it in a situation like that; in a way you really can’t anymore here. Until we figure out how to make Squamish affordable again, we’re going to keep watching that stream of great businesses like Yiannis come and go. Welcome to Carmel North!

vibrant. I’m not saying one community is better than the other, but I do think they planned better. Past councils here paid homage to the downtown but every development or tax decision they made undermined it. I sometimes wonder if past councils didn’t deliberately stick the knife into downtown’s back. I’ve heard a few developers (and one or two past councillors) referring to Squamish as the next Carmel, Calif. — an exclusive, gated bedroom community with no economy of its own and no need for one. We can talk all we want about creating a high-tech community and economic diversification, but as long as it remains prohibitively expensive to live and work in Squamish, people and investment

tor in hydro, telephone, Internet and even paying yourself, never mind an employee! With such a small and de pleted economic base, it’s a very dicey proposition. I’ve watched a steady stream of entrepreneurs trying to make gold out of lead downtown, and closing their doors sometimes in as little as months after starting. It’s very sad, but given the cost structure, fairly predictable, too. I’m not sure Campbell River is much better off economically than Squamish, but when I was downtown there I sensed a vitality that is almost completely lacking here. When I walk around downtown Squamish I feel like I’m in a dead zone. Downtown Campbell River felt alive,

some cases! I’ve surveyed space down in the city in areas with much higher traffic, and in a lot of cases they are similar or even cheaper than Squamish! Why is Squamish so expensive compared to Campbell River? Probably high real estate costs, which force landowners to charge higher rents to cover financing costs. These also drive up taxes, which are based on land values. There has been a steady opening of commercial space downtown with vacant spaces sitting empty for months, but I’ve not seen any movement on lease rates yet. I’ve thought many times over the 12 years I’ve been in business of opening up some space, hiring, etc. But at the end of the day I’m not convinced the math makes it worth it. You have to sell a lot of widgets to cover $1,500 a month, and that’s before you fac-



Continued from A8 The average lease rate down there is $12 to $14 per square foot, plus triple net. Triple net is your portion of the building’s land taxes, insurance and maintenance, and usually adds up to $4 to $5 per square foot or more. This is per annum, so a 1,000-square-foot space at $14 per square foot, with say $4 in triple net, equals $18,000 per year or $1,500 a month. By comparison, many spots in Campbell River could be had for as little as $5 per square foot, with similar triple net. Your monthly lease cost for something like that would be $750 by comparison. That’s a big difference! And $12 to $14 is about as low as it gets in Squamish. Up on the highway, you’re looking at closer to $22 plus triple net for groundfloor retail space. In those spaces, rents can hit between $2,000 to $4,000 per month in

Quality Foods Help Do Some Good healthcare fundraiser RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Buy Pepsi products at Quality Foods, and help support a hospital Campbell Riverites are

often referred to during the Help Do Some Good campaign. From this Sunday, Aug. 7 to Sept. 3, 75 cents from every 12 pack of participating

Pepsi products will go to the Quality Foods Health Endowment Fund. “It’s an awareness drive,” said Scott McAlpine, assistant

manager of the Campbell River Quality Foods. “Obviously this is a fund that’s needed.” The proceeds from this fundraiser will

go to the Nanaimo Re g i o n a l G e n e r a l Hospital (NRGH) for things like new equipment, renovations, and continuing education for healthcare profes-

tor for Quality Foods. MacKay says supporting NRGH is important because local families can often get the care they need in Nanaimo, rather than having to travel to Vancouver. “It’s something that people can get behind and support, and feel good about doing,” said MacKay. The Quality Foods Health Endowment Fund has been around for about four years, but MacKay says this project is different. “As a company we’ve never done anything this ambitious for healthcare before,” explained MacKay. “It’s really big.” MacKay says he hopes to raise tens of thousands of dollars from the sale of Pepsi products. Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max, 7UP, Mug, Mountain Dew, Crush, Dr Pepper, and Schwe ppes are all included in the fundraiser. Boxes of Pepsi products will be set up in a display in the front of the Campbell River Quality Foods, as well as posters with information about the Quality Foods Health Endowment Fund. “We’re really getting behind it at the store level,” said MacKay.

Campbell River Living Mushing north to the Yukon to help animals ber 2005 to aid in the rescue of thousands of animals displaced by the disaster. Emery recently joined the group with the trip to Carmacks being her first as a member of the team. She hopes next year to return to Carmacks and pay a visit to Ucluelet which has expressed interest in having the team come out.

icole Emery’s love of animals led her all the way to a small Yukon village last month to help animals who don’t have access to medical care. Emery ventured to Carmacks, Yukon, a town of about 400 people, for an animal wellness project with the Canadian Animal Assistance Team. Emery, along with other members of her team, provided veterinarian services to animals who would normally have to travel more than two hours to the nearest veterinarian clinic. The team set up a temporary animal hospital in the gym of the Carmacks community centre. “We had two surgery tables, a vaccination area and a recovery area,� said Emery, a registered animal health technologist at Coastland Veterinary Hospital in Campbell River. “At the end of our trip we spayed and neutered 75 pets – mostly dogs – and vaccinated over 170. This number still amazes me. A regular vet clinic might have four surgeries in one day and we did 75 in three and a half days.� Emery and her team also focused on deworming animals plus provided any other treatments

of their house for a few days so we could move in,� Emery said. “I was humbled by the kindness and generosity shown to the Canadian Animal Assistance Team members by the Carmacks community. Every day individuals from the community would stay and help us, including an 11-year-old girl who came every day to assist us.� She said her biggest surprise on the trip was the size of the dogs she attended to. “I guess I just assumed there would be a lot of big husky

dogs, being way up in the Yukon but that wasn’t the case, most of the dogs were small,� Emery said with laugh. “I believe that our work will significantly help the pet populations in Carmacks. We hope to go back again next year and continue our work, which will also include an educational portion for children and adults about animal care and training.� To learn more about the Canadian Animal Assistance Team or to donate to the organization visit: www.caatcanada.org

and neutered as possible.� The team included two veterinarians, six technologists and one assistant who not only provided medical care, but taught some of the kids how to teach their dogs to do tricks and create a special bond with their pet.

Mosquito A Tyees win bronze at B.C. provincials The Campbell River Mosquito A Tyees went from unknowns to favorites over a fourday tournament in the Lower Mainland. On Sunday, the Campbell River Mosquito A Tyees overcame an earlier defeat in the semifinals to capture the bronze medal game 5-4 over Cloverdale. The Tyees entered the tour nament as unknowns from the North Island and attracted little attention until the skill competition. During four events, the Tyees’ Connor Hall finished second

in a tiebreaker for the catchers’ competition, Jalen Price captured the Home Run competition and the team finished near the top at the next two competitions. By then the team had everyone’s attention. This was further confirmed over the next two days. In games on Friday and Saturday, the Tyees went 3 and 1. On Friday, the Tyees defeated Cloverdale 13-7 in game one and then lost game two to Chilliwack 10-9 in the bottom of the sixth. Continued on A15

Klatt holds on to win Round 7 Campbell River’s Dusty Klatt stepped out of his teammate Colton Facciotti’s shadow in Round 7 of the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals in Moncton, NB on Sunday with an impressive double-heat victory. Facciotti, coming off a clean sweep at Round 6 in Ste-Julie, QC, stayed in the mix to take second overall on the strength of 2-2 heats. Facciotti snared the first MX1 heat holeshot with on his heels Willard, Klatt, Jared Allison, Bobby Kiniry and Teddy Maier. Ten minutes into the heat Facciotti, making a rare mistake, went down and handed the lead to Klatt on a silver platter. Kiniry, who was running third at the time, took over second place but found

himself looking at a lot of real estate between himself and Klatt. Meanwhile, Facciotti managed to remount in third place, more than 20 seconds behind Klatt. Charging hard in a bid to reclaim the lead, Facciotti took over second place from Kiniry just before the halfway point.

E ve n t h o u g h h e shaved Klatt’s huge lead down to about five seconds by the end of the heat, Facciotti had to settle for runner-up when the checkered flag signalled the end of the race. Klatt’s and Facciotti’s pace up front was so intense they gapped third place finisher Matt Goerke by about

15 seconds and lapped up to eighth place by the time the heat came to an end. T he second heat holeshot went to PJ Stratton, but with the likes of Klatt, Facciotti, Kiniry, and Maier breathing down his neck he quickly disappeared from the top-five. Klatt was the first to pass Stratton and once in the lead, the defending champ kept it all the way to the checkered, recording his best heat of the season in the process and scoring his third heat win of the season as well as his first overall.

able to regroup and defeat Cloverdale once again in the bronze medal game in a very close 5-4 game which came down to the final out. This was an amazing weekend for the Island boys. Price was once again impressive, twice clearing the fence in game action for two very important home runs over the weekend. The young Tyees left their first provincials impressing many with the prospects of future success. As with the Islands, this took a complete

effort from the whole team and a memorable experience for all involved. Game MVP honours

were won by Price, Jamie Ingersoll, Brodie Comerford, Connor Hall, Brayden McCauley and River Fahey.

Drive Smart BC 2X14 No Laser, No Radar, is the Ticket Valid? I was issued a ticket for Speed Against a Municipal Sign for driving over 30km/hr in a playground zone. The officer had no laser and no radar; she flagged me over, saying “The speed limit here is 30--you were not doing 30.” I can’t say whether I was doing 31 or 51; my best guess based on the location I was pulled over would be somewhere between 30-40. What does the law say surrounding this? Would I have grounds to dispute this ticket?

TYEE CHEV

The law says that a municipality may regulate speed by enacting a bylaw and placing signs to limit the speeds of vehicles on municipal streets. If you pass such a sign your vehicle’s speed cannot legally exceed that shown on the sign. If it does, by one or by one hundred, the court may choose to convict. The courts will also accept estimates of speed from both police officers and the general public where the witness is credible and has knowledge and experience that would allow them to guage speed. Most drivers would have this capability through the experience of operating their own vehicle. Police officers have this capability as well as practice with it as they estimate speed and then confirm that speed with either a laser or radar in the course of their enforcement duties. It appears that you are not sure of your speed and that it could be over the limit. Being honest, if you cannot convince the court with certainty that it was 30 or less, you will have to dispute on other grounds. These may be that there was no bylaw, there was no sign, the sign was not applicable in the circumstances or the officer was mistaken in the estimate. The author is a retired constable with many years of experience in traffic law enforcement. To comment or learn more, please visit www. drivesmartbc.ca.

North Island Film Commission recognized by the province RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Vancouver Island North Film Commissionwill receive $30,000 in funding from the provincial government

this year. “We are very pleased that the government does recognize our work because it brings economic development to both the region and the province,” said Va n c o u ve r I s l a n d

on local crew, equipment, and services; and representing the interests of local communities. Since 1995, the Vancouver Island North Film Commission has been involved in film productions which generated more than $80 million in economic impact on local communities. T he $30,000 will go into the Commission’s core budget, as it is only one source of funding it receives to keep the budget on track. “We have to apply for funding from about 15 different funders and hope that the funding comes through,” said Miller. “The $30,000 that we do get from the province shows their

faith in what we do,” she explained. In total $275,000 was given out to regional film commissions and agencies across the province. B.C. is the third-largest production centre in North America after Los A n g e l e s a n d N ew York. “Since 1978, the B.C. Film Commission has successfully showcased the province as a motion picture production centre and filming destination,” said B.C. Film Commissioner Susan Croome in a news release. “Regional commissions and organizations are instrumental in building and promoting B.C.’s inventory of locations.”

Fisherman will reveal the best fishing spots RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Local fishing guru, Larry Stefanyk, loves everything about the sport; casting, reeling, and – magazines and books. As publisher of four fishing books, and one magazine, as well as another one in the works, Stefanyk said he doesn’t end up with too much time left for the actual art of fishing. “I talk about fishing more than I fish,” he said with a chuckle. Stefanyk started his career selling advertising at a fishing magazine in Parksville about 20 years ago. But about 12 years ago he decided to move to Campbell River and start his own magazine, called Island Fisherman Magazine, which he offers for free

to the public. Also, he recently put out a guide for trout fishing, called Ultimate Trout Fishing in the Pacific Northwest, which is his fourth book on fishing over the years. The new book offers important advice for beginners, like how to obtain a licence, which rods are best for children, and which lures are best for which fish. The guide also offers more in depth advice for seasoned pros to up their game, as well as interesting tidbits, such as flipping a bait worm container upside down, so when flipped up and opened, the worms are at the top. The book contains factoids about trout as well, such as all brook trout stocked in B.C. are now female trip-

go to ‘fishing school’ to learn so much about the sport. Rather, he said he’s

just picked it up along the way by going to fishing lodges and hanging out with

the experts over the years. “I’m a great believer in sharing,” said Stefanyk, of his need to get the facts about fishing out to the public. “I wanted to put it in people’s hands.” His newest project is another free magazine, which will be released next March. Although he is not sure of the title yet, a possibility is Lakes of Vancouver Island. Stefanyk is spending a “tremendous” amount of time researching the lakes of Vancouver Island. The magazine will

list information about each lake, including directions, elevation, depth, camping facilities, and what kinds of fish are in the lake, stocked and native. Although Stefanyk said some die-hard fisher men may be upset that he is telling the general public about where the best fishing holes are, it’s something he’s compelled to do. “There’s a real need for what I’m going to produce because you can’t find the information easily,” explained Stefanyk. “I’m going to spill the beans.”
