DAVE HENUSET/SPECIAL TO THE MIRROR

Line of dolphins Anglers seem oblivious to the row of dolphins streaming towards them off the Discovery Pier Monday evening around 7:30 p.m. Dave and Linda Henuset were fishing off the pier when they heard the splashing of the approaching pod of reportedly 100-200 dolphins swimming down Discovery Passage. Dave had just bought his camera. It had barely been out of its box when the animals appeared.

Mayor won’t seek re-election ALISTAIR TAYLOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Mayor Charlie Cornfield will not be seeking re-election in November’s municipal election. And it’s not because of his health, the one-term mayor pointed out. He’s going back to his day job. “I want to make it very clear that my reason for leaving has

nothing to do with my health,” Cornfield said in a statement released Thursday morning. “I am perfectly fine. “The reason I am leaving is I have been on a leave of absence from the provincial government for the past three years. That leave expires at the end of the year. It is time to return to my career.” Cornfield is a recreation spe-

cialist with the Ministry of Forests. During his term of mayor he dealt with some personal health issues that took him away from office for a period. In recent months though, he has been as active in the office and in performing his duties at various community events as ever. “Those of you who really know me understand that I have always put our community first and

A vehicle rollover near Rosewall Creek ended in tragedy Tuesday. Ruth Oppel was a passenger in the vehicle and died as a result of the accident. Barbara Enger was the driver, and was seriously injured but is expected to recover. Both women are from Campbell River. While travelling southbound on Highway 19 at about 5:40 a.m. on Tues. Sept. 6, Enger swerved to miss a deer, according to a news release by Const. Kristi Martin of Comox Valley RCMP. Enger then lost control of the vehicle, which slid into the median ditch, and flipped over several times before coming to rest on its roof. Both women were wearing their seat belts, and speed and alcohol were not factors in this accident, Martin said. Martin asks anyone who may have witnessed this accident to call the Comox Valley RCMP Traffic Services at 250-338-1321.

has made under his tenure. “We paid off debt, borrowed no new money and delivered major projects on time and under budget. We have balanced economic and social and environmental issues while moving the community to a bright and promising future.” Cornfield presided over the city during a particularly challenging time. The global economic recession hit Campbell River hard. The forest sector in particular was slapped with job losses approaching 1,500 people. “No council has had to face a situation as serious as the permanent closing of the (Elk Falls) pulp and paper mill,” Cornfield said. “Significant change was happening and there was little we could do to stop it. The best we could hope for was to manage it and minimize the impact, while preparing for the future.” The city lost $5 million in municipal taxes which forced the city to cut services and budgets. City staff were reorganized on a cost-neutral

basis and tax increases were kept to a minimum, Cornfield said. Cornfield cited a reorganized Rivercorp, Highway 19A improvements, the completion of Spirit Square and the conversion of Campbell River to a greener community as some of the positive accomplishments by the city during his tenure. On the regrets side of the ledger, Cornfield said he needed to spend more time on council issues and with new councillors. Instead, he had to spend time on organizational issues, the lack of a Chief Administrative Officer, Rivercorp as well as dealing with the mill closure. “I wish I could have saved the mill but...would have liked to see a community forest and value-aded forestry, including a new sawmill,” Cornfield said. “Would have liked to have done more for the tourism sector marketing and promoting Campbell River.” Cornfield would also have liked to clean up the 3.5 acre waterfront lot the city owns and connect Robert Ostler Park to Discovery Harbour Marina and the Seawalk.

Salmon farmers confident Cohen will 2X6.5 YOGA SOLACE Yoga not link wild fish decline to farmed fish s o l a c e s t u d i o RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Justice Cohen will not find a link between wild salmon declines and farmed fish if he interprets the expert testimonies the same way as B.C. Salmon Farmers Association executive director Mary Ellen Walling. Started on Aug. 25, the aquaculture hearings at the Cohen Commission finished yesterday. Walling attended and said she is fairly confident Justice Cohen will not salmon farms responsible for the collapse of the Fraser River sockeye. “If he’s basing his recommendations on, and listening to the testimony that I’m hearing, then no he would have no reason to draw that conclusion, because when you go through those independent reports by the technical specialists you don’t see it.” T h e re p o r t s s h e referred to contain fish health data collected by salmon farms since 2002, and studied by provincial fish health veterinarians. The veterinarians also collected their own data to compare. During the aquaculture hearings independent experts analyzed the data and according to Walling, said they found the quantity and quality of the data “impressive,” and did not link salmon farms to the decline. Dr. Josh Korman, of Ecometric Research Inc. wrote a report outlining his conclusions, where he pointed out that during the low return year in 2009 and the high return year of 2010, salmon farm disease related deaths remained fairly constant. “Ne g ative ef fects of salmon farms on retur ns of Fraser River sockeye between 2002 and 2010 were not apparent based on a qualitative comparison with salmon farming data provided in this report,” wrote Korman. “Fraser River sockeye returns show a declining trend over this period, with exceptionally low and high returns in 2009 and 2010, respectively,” he added.

“T he number of mortalities on salmon far ms potentially caused by disease has remained relatively constant over this same period.” However, Alexandra Morton, executive director of Raincoast Research Society disag rees, saying the independent experts were not trained to read the raw data, and that the data left out a specific disease that she believes is causing sockeye salmon to decline; the disease is called marine anemia. Dr. Mark Sheppard, lead veterinarian, for Aquaculture Environmental Operations, DFO, originally analyzed the data and did not classify fish as having marine anemia, because he doesn’t believe the disease exists, according to Morton. “If you look at the data base they have the disease, I mean that’s

THEY SAID IT: “You can

what the data base says to me, but they deny it exists even though the vet has reported the symptoms of marine anemia 587 times,” said Morton, adding that the symptoms of the disease were reported, but the disease was not actually diagnosed by Sheppard. Morton wants Dr. Kristi Miller, who testified that she found marine anemia in wild salmon stocks, to be granted access to test farmed fish in time to prepare a report before Cohen writes his report. Walling said that the raw data needs to be

read by a trained fish health expert or veterinarian or else false conclusions could be drawn. If “you’re not a fish health veterinarian looking at the data you can cherry pick through the data and speculate about what the results contain,” said Walling. Morton also said that 60 per cent of salmon farm fish that die are not diagnosed, meaning the cause of death is unknown. According to Walling, the survival rate of farmed fish is around 95 to 96 per cent, while wild fish returns are between three and seven per cent. The Cohen Commission will continue on, starting the hearings for hydro, water, and temperature on Sept. 15. A number of possible impacts have already been heard, including numerous environmental factors.

Cohen’s final report is due on June 30 2012.

Babys Best Chance helps moms-to-be RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A local pro g ram believes healthy mothers make healthy babies. Funded by provincial Pregnancy Outreach P ro g r a m s ( P O P S ) , Baby’s Best Chance is designed to help ensure local mothers have the healthiest babies they can possibly have. Program coordinator Linda Kempling, who has been with Baby’s Best Chance since 1992, said she can see that the program is very important to Campbell River. “It’s huge because we really get a lot of people who are saying ‘I don’t know what I would do without it,’” explained Kempling. It offers free prenatal vitamins and supplements, food vouchers, an emergency food cupboard, rides to doctor’s appointments, and bus tickets to mothers with financial problems, among other things. Kempling said the bus tickets and emergency food cupboard are new aspects to the program created in response to a greater need in the community. “We find that so many more families are so much hungrier than they were in the past,” said Kempling. “The economy is a little scarier in Campbell River right now.” Although the program helps women in financial need, it is about more than that, according to Kempling. “The support aspect really is huge, that is one of the biggest things that we do here,” explained Kempling. The program has a developed support network for mothers-to-be and mothers-who-are, offering weekly dropin pre and postnatal groups, walking and swimming g roups, picnics, and expertise from a registered dietician and a registered nurse, among other services. Twenty-two-year-old Kari Wasylciew joined the program about eight months ago as a mother-to-be. She struggled to put into words how valuable the information and support was to her as single woman pregnant with her first baby, repeating that it was “invaluable,” and that the support and knowledge she gained

helped her greatly. “You’re getting the proper information, but you’re also getting the experience,” said Wasylciew. “To have somebody that you know is going through the exact same thing that you are is so

relieving.” T his past Tues., Wasylciew was at her last prenatal drop-in with her daughter Kaya, who is just over a month old. She was telling her birthing story to all the expectant mothers to prepare them for their own big day. And it doesn’t end there; Wasylciew has can continue on in variety of different programs until Kaya is six. The program also accommodates women who don’t like group sessions by offering one-on-one support. While designed for women who have a high risk pregnancy, that can include something like social isolation

C O N T I N U I N G E D U C AT I O N

as well as economic or medical stresses. Kempling said women who would like to participate in the program who don’t need the extra financial help are more than welcome. “It doesn’t have to be low income; it’s just for women who really truly need that extra little bit of support, maybe they’re brand new to town,” said Kempling, “if a woman feels like she needs the extra support then she feels like that for a reason.” The office is located at 487 10th Ave., and is open from 8:30 a.m.4:30 p.m. on weekdays. For more information or to set up a time for an intake interview call 250-287-2421.

Opinion

PUBLISHER: Zena Williams publisher@campbellrivermirror.com

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

Shine goes off the Order of B.C. Does disgraced ex-Premier Gordon Campbell deserve the Order of British Columbia? Well apparently some think so and a whole bunch of others don’t think so. We say: Does There is a petition floating around on the internet against Campbell receiva politician ing the OBC. automatically The Order of British Columbia is deserve an award certainly a badge of honour for recipients for years of commitment to the broader community. People who have previously been awarded the OBC have advocated for change, organized non-profit orga-

nizations, served their communities without asking for recognition and actually made a positive difference in people’s lives. Honestly, can we say this about Gordon Campbell? Sure he helped bring the Olympics here, but under his rule he cut social services, strong-armed unions and allowed scandal to rock the Liberal boat. Think BC Rail. Think DUI. Think lying about the HST. Think back. Does any politician deserve such distinction, especially when he left office in less than happy circumstances and caused a sigh of relief when he vacated

the premier’s chair? To give Gordon Campbell this civilian honour makes it appear to be a political honour instead. Politicians can and often do some good but when a cloud of controversy and suspicion follows them they are not deserving of an award that honours current or former British Columbia residents for conspicuous achievements in any field. There are so many truly worthy people who deserve this honour more than a politician with a cloud over his head. Let’s not take the shine off this prestigious medal. – Black Press

Good point: Strathcona One wonders if the Friends of Strathcona Park have really had time to meet John (the cowboy), who manages the Western Wilderness Resort, before embarking on their alternative trail initiative. Firstly the roughing in of an alternative trail to cut western wilderness resort out of the picture only disturbs more wildlife and fauna. Secondly John and company would be a great asset to the group and its maintenance of the trail. He is well know it Tofino as a supporter of environmental issues in Clayoquot Sound, and has devoted time and much money into helping save the wild salmon. He is a friend, not an enemy of the wild lands. A face to face meeting with him would be at least polite and probably a very positive step forward for the friends of the park. I marched across Vancouver island from the Bedwell to Comox Lake in 1969, as part of an elite armed forces unit’s introduction to West Coast terrain. Clearly there are many dangerous and challenging spots along the crossing. Any initial trail maintenance and emergency stations along the Bedwell end should be much welcomed, not poo poohed: They may well save lives. Finally, horses managed by the “cowboy” will be as natural an event as plodding humans with their accoutrements. Impact will be in keeping with all guidelines set Continued on A13

No Virginia, this isn’t Mister Roger’s neighbourhood

Sian Thomson Just Cause

There is just cause to suggest that we are not living in Mister Roger’s Neighborhood. Recently it was reported that prejudice on a fairly significant scale exists in Campbell River against people who rent. This “don’t you be my neighbor” mentality is reportedly supported by council who dropped a rezoning application (but still pocketed the $2,700 application fee) without exercising due process and flying in the face of their own community plan. Why does anyone equate a renter with being a sub-standard individual? Why is it assumed that renters will bring down the “form and character” of an established neighbourhood as assumed by Coun. Roy Grant? Why would the mistaken belief that

is was a duplex application give the public the “wrong impression” Mr. Grant? Why do the residents of South McLean area think that renters are synonymous with noise, traffic, drug dealing and decreased property values? Of course, in the suburbs of Campbell River, a dealer or a grow-op owner or a meth lab owner would never ever own a home, such people are only renters, right? Everyone knows renters are more inclined to crime, loud parties and shady lifestyles. Or so our sensitivities dictate. These people insist that housing values will decrease because renters have no pride or vested interest in where they live. I do agree some people have no pride but that is not a product of being a renter it is a prod-

uct of not having pride and respect. This situation does not support the “neighborhood diversity and healthy communities” of our city plan, this is blatant discrimination and constitutes an unfair intervention into the housing market to limit access for one particular group of people. In our current economy, many houses aren’t selling and as more people don’t have the credit to buy houses, more families are renting in neighbourhoods that normally wouldn’t have renters. How are the “renters” being treated by the neighbours? Do homeowners take the time to get to know them? Do homeowners invite them to the neighbourhood events? Or do they just shun them; students, young couples starting out, people who have lost jobs, ended

marriages, run out of employment insurance, lost their homes, work for minimum wages, or find themselves on income assistance. Is there no “zone” for them in our Official Community Plan except at the back end of the community? I bet some of these “renters” do everything they can to enhance their income. They probably collect bottles and other recyclables so they can pay their rent and eat, buy prescription medications or pay their hydro bills. It is apparently not such a beautiful day in the neighbourhood when these “scavengers” are lurking around the community recycling bins. Someone complained that she didn’t feel safe getting out of her car and had to go to the landfill instead. Continued on A13


OPINION

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

FOLLOW US ON...

Passage was a great adventure When my good friend from Campbell River told me about an annual event of Discovery Passage Passage, I got intrigued. Being an adventurous person at heart, I could not resist the temptation. Immediately, I registered my husband and myself for this adventure.

Mr. (Geoff) Goodship, the organizer of this event, and his wife, kindly offered us an accommodation. Now, there was only matter of finding a house /dog sitter for our 14-yearold dog. The Discovery Passage Passage was the fifth annual event of crossing the Discovery

Passage from Campbell River to Cape Mudge on Quadra Island. (In 1792 Captain George Washington came to Campbell River aboard the ship HMS Discovery, hence Discovery Passage and Cape Mudge is named after a 1st Lieutenant of HMS Discovery, Zachary Mudge. )

Cause: All these scavengers are poor Continued from A12

She wants them fined. The problem is they wouldn’t be able to pay it unless they had access to bottles. All of these scavengers are poor. They are single disabled people getting up to $375 a month to rent and $531 a month to pay for everything else. They are single parents with a couple of kids who are collecting up to $660 for rent and $376 for everything else. They are students trying to work it out on a student loan. They are full time service workers whose minimum

wage pay cheques are $640 before deductions. They have children who are suffering from the highest poverty rate in Canada and constitute over 50 per cent of food bank use. Sitting on a pail outside a recycling bin is humiliating as is waiting around with a shopping cart. A sign saying “No Scavenging” is not going to deter someone who needs their diabetic supplies or to feed their children. They are not boogey-men. They are poor men, and women, who would just really appreciate you giving them your bottles and not judg-

ing them because they are not like you. What needs to go into the landfill is your bigotry and attitudes, not your recyclables. In Mister Rogers neighbourhood you don’t have to look like everybody else and be like everybody else to be acceptable and to feel acceptable. (Fred Rogers). I wish, we, as neighbours, could live with such authenticity, wisdom and kindness. Sian Thomson is executive director of the Island (Justice, A dv o c a c y, D i g n i t y and Empowerment ) J.A.D.E. Society – www. islandjadesociety.ca

The crossing is opened to any manpowered vessel. It has to be done in a short period of slack

tide, to avoid rushing waters of changing tides. There were 151 people registered and Continued on A14

Park: shortsighted stance Continued from A12 for people, and parks can monitor the permits to everyone’s’ satisfaction. Western Wilderness Resort is a highly responsible and sensitive enterprise bringing much needed exposure to our lovely island’s interior and thus aiding the safekeeping of its beauty internationally. More talk, understanding, and good intentions would have

gone a long way further than the current direction of alienating parks and the resort and many people who know the area. I say to parks, grant the permit and encourage the friends of the park to join hands as friends with John, rather than embarking on this short sighted and conflict-ridden ideological stance.

September Thursday,

I do not wish to be critical of your reporting of the recent boat rodeo. As I watched the bathtub race I did notice that these young drivers put on an excellent show of safe boating and a great effort in sportsmanship. However, there was one young driver who should have been recognized above all others, #240 (editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note:

Nathan Barlow). Not only did he finish his laps at least five laps ahead of the the others but he did it like a true sportsman. I think what we have is a world class formula boat driver in training. To this driver, I salute you for a race done in grand style and a finish well deserved. Jerry Chappell Campbell River

Volunteer fair this Saturday The Campbell River Volunteer Society will host a volunteer fair at Spirit Square from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 10. The event includes music by Rick Benn, and Volunteer Passport prizes. “Volunteering is a great way to: Meet new people, learn new skills, give back to a cause, be connected with the community, get a reference, build your resume, keep busy and live a longer and healthier life,” said Volunteer Fair organizers in a news release. So, come on down and meet non-profit organi-

zations to hear about the work they do, and the volunteer opportunities available within their organizations. Potential volunteers can pick up a Volunteer Passport at the fair from the Campbell River Volunteer Society booth. After speaking to four agencies at the fair they can enter a draw to win prizes. Some of the agencies that will be there are: Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society, Meals on Wheels, the John Howard Society, St. John Ambulance, Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, CR Hospital Volunteer Services,

Greenways Land Trust, Salvation Army, CR Women’s Centre, North Island Transition Society, Special Olympics, Rivercity Players, and CR Head Injury. Volunteer Passport prizes include a beautiful necklace from Trends and Friends, a gift certificate towards a custom cake from Lani Cakes, and items donated from the various groups at the fair, such as a first aide kit from St. John Ambulance, brain exercise books from CR Head Injury, two tickets to a local play from Rivercity Players, volunteer appreciation items, plus many more.

As well as hearing about the volunteer opportunities available, Joanna Banana from 99.7 the River will be broadcasting from the event, we will have a “volunteer appreciation” cake donated by Lani Cakes to share, and the Salvation Army will set up their Crisis Response Unit that will serve free coffee, plus additional snacks and drinks with donations from Discovery Foods and our own volunteers. Also, near the end of the event, with support from Balloons N More Party Shop, “appreciate volunteer” balloons will be handed out.

This fall, the band will be working on a variety of autumn themed music for a November concert. New members of any age with some band experience are always welcome, and should contact Celine Ouellette at 923-6844 in advance so she can prepare a folder.

Never hug a mugger on Quadra Whodunnit, and was there marijuana involved? Quadra Island is featured as the rainforest setting of a new mystery novel in the Island Investigations International mystery series. Together, Sandy Frances Duncan and George Szanto co-author the series, which also includes titles featuring Gabriola and Whidbey Islands. The story’s detectives are sleuthing around Quadra Island in the employ of Noel’s old high school buddy, Jason Cooper. Jason and family are worried for the oldest son in the family, Derek, who was discovered badly beaten in the woods in nearby Campbell River and has remained in a deep coma for three weeks. As the two get to know the sleepy island community, they’re surprised to discover that Derek may have been in on a drug deal, but why? Others in the community describe him as a decent young man with a good head on his shoulders-what could have possibly pushed him to deal in drugs? Kyra and Noel are determined to find out what circumstances could have drawn this happy family into such dark territory. Tuesday Sept. 27, meet the authors, hear them read and have your book signed at the Quadra Island book launch, 7 p.m. at the Heriot Bay Inn; $20 includes appies and light desserts. Reservations 285-3322.

BC Hydro’s Vancouver Island facilities, such as the John Hart Generating Station, are some of the oldest generating facilities in Canada. In operation since 1947, the construction of the John Hart Generating Station employed thousands of people, supported communities, and helped to usher in an era of abundant, clean, reliable energy. Current projects on the Island, like the planned upgrades at the John Hart Generating Station, will update our aging infrastructure so it can continue to power our community, province and future generations. Projects like this one set the stage for increased industrial development and economic opportunities throughout our region.

One of the most charming and comical species of birds has to be the pileated woodpecker. Its unusual name is derived from the Latin word, “pileum,” which described a pointed cap worn by the Romans. The pileated is the largest of the thirteen species of woodpeckers, which also includes flickers and sap suckers. Locally the most common woodpeckers are the pileated, hairy and downy . Woodpeckers are very important “keystone species” and critical to the safety and well being of many other wildlife species including, squirrels,

where they excavate holes in search of food, or to create a nest. The nests are only used once. They then abandon them and many other wildlife species use them. Locally, these woodpeckers are important to our smaller owls especially the northern pygmy, saw whet and western screech owls, providing them with cavity nests. Woodpeckers are equipped with long chisel shaped beaks with special features allowing them to hammer away at a tree. When watching a woodpecker at work o n e wo n d e r s h ow

Pileated woodpeckers excavate large oblong or square holes, in contrast to flickers which are round and sapsuckers which drill a ring of small round holes circling the tree trunk, which eventually weaken or kill the tree. Pileated woodpeckers are not regular visitors to M.A.R.S. as they do not usually stray into urban areas. However, their habitat is constantly being encroached upon and dead trees are being

Drive Smart BC 2XFULL The Good Samaritan Virtually every crash scene that I attended during my policing career featured at least one good samaritan. These were people who stopped TYEE to help CHEV another in a time of need, often at some risk to themselves. This kind of selflessness is encouraged with protection granted by law in British Columbia. The Good Samaritan Act protects a lay person who is providing emergency aid to injured people at an accident scene. The protection applies unless the rescuer is grossly negligent in their actions. Gross negligence is any action or an omission in reckless disregard of the consequences to the safety or property of another. However, before you jump in to help at the next collision, remember that unless you have first aid training and know what to do it is best to do the least necessary to preserve life and prevent worsening of the injury. Paramedics are quick to caution that it is very easy to do significant damage instead applying treatment. If you have access to a cell phone, a 911 call will provide expert guidance from paramedical personnel if you are willing to remain connected and provide accurate information. Following this guidance will produce the best outcome for the injured. Should communication not be available, be cautious so that you won’t make a bad situation worse and need the protection of the Good Samaritan Act. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www.drivesmartbc.ca.

most important fundraising national event of the year and takes place in 90 communities across Canada, 11 of which are in BC. The goals are to raise $325,000 in BC and $3 million nationally. Parkinson SuperWalk is considered a celebration of life and victory over adversity. Participants view this event as a “family affair” as most walk in support of a relative. “Both my father and my father-in law had Parkinson Disease,” says Chris, a dedicated SuperWalker. When my husband was diagnosed with the disease in 2005, my concern was for my children and grandchildren. While Parkinson’s was not generally considered to be a genetic disorder, it was known to run in families.” “Parkinson Society British Columbia was there for me when I approached them with questions about the disease affecting my family,” explains Chris. “Raising funds through Superwalk pledges seemed like the

Peter Bowers 1965 – 2011

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Peter “Pete” Bowers confirm that Pete died tragically in the beautiful waters of Carrington Bay, Cortes Island, on August 26, 2011. Pete was born in Ontario, but he was a long time Campbell River resident who loved good times and good friends. He loved to play his guitar and enjoyed bringing a smile to the face of anyone he met. Pete was a carpenter, a musician, a son, brother, uncle, father and friend. We will miss his sense of humour, his carefree spirit, and his genuine love of life. Pete leaves to mourn; his mother, Madeline, his son Jason, and his seven brothers Douglas, Larry, Randy, Gordon, Billy, Rob, and Donnie. Peter did what he loved…and loved what he did. A service for Pete will be held at 2:00pm, Saturday, September 10, 2011 at the Campbell River Baptist Church, 260 South Dogwood Street, Campbell River, BC. There will be a reception downstairs immediately after the service.

Laurie Dawn Andrews

January 14, 1953 - August 26, 2011 Laurie Andrews -- beloved Mother, Nana, Sister, Friend -- passed away in peace, surrounded by loved ones, at her home in Campbell River on August 26. Laurie inspired all with her hope and courage as she continued to live a happy, full life despite a cancer diagnosis in June 2009. She fought this difficult battle with determination and grace, and she never gave up. Her bravery and strength made her a hero for many. Laurie grew up in Victoria and moved to Campbell River in 1978 to raise her family, which was always the most important thing in her life: Above all she was a devoted mother, and also became a most loving grandmother. Laurie loved reading, live theatre, relaxing near the ocean, adventuring with her best friend, and laughing with her family. For many years Laurie was actively involved in the River City Players, working behind the scenes or shining brightly on-stage. She worked for over 20 years at the local Scotiabank, greeting all of her customers with a smile. She also became a member of the Campbell River Center for Spiritual Living as part of her journey towards healing and understanding. Laurie has gone to join her parents Olaf and Olwen, sister Marilyn, and brother-in-law David. Left to love and remember her are her children Shawna (Bill), Chelsey (Keegan), Joel, and Crysta (Micah); grandchildren Kai, Bryelle, and Charlotte, and two more grandchildren expected soon; sisters Arlene (Allen), Glenys (Irven), and Kerry; best friend Diane (John); ex-husband Don; mother-in-law Doreen; brothers-in-law, Derek (Cheryl), Dennis (Ruth), Patrick, and Michael (Vicki); sister-in-law Rosemary; and many nieces and nephews. We will always remember Laurie’s caring heart and gentle spirit. All who knew her have been inspired and taught by her never-ending capacity to love. We love you, Laurie -- always and forever. There will be a memorial in November to celebrate Laurie’s life. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

INRIG, Bruce Douglas Following a life well lived; it is with great sadness the family of Bruce Douglas Inrig announce that he has taken his final flight and passed away peacefully on September 04, 2011 surrounded by family and friends following a brief illness. We are all grateful Bruce lived a full and wonderful life. Predeceased by the love of his life and wife Caroline Elizabeth “Betty” on April 30, 2003, Bruce is survived by and will be sadly missed by his sons, Doug and Scott (Glenda) and daughter Anne (Charlie) as well as his grandchildren Tyler (Nickie), Krista (Jon) and Bryan (Deirdre), along with his great grandchildren Kristian and Alli and many nieces and nephews, who will all miss his love and support. Bruce was born in Hamilton, Ontario on November 15, 1920, the youngest child of James and Catherine Inrig. Bruce is predeceased by his 5 siblings. Bruce joined the war effort in 1940, training as a fighter pilot. He left the air force in 1946 when he joined the federal fisheries. He “re-upped” to the air force to fly jet fighters until his retirement from the forces in 1964. He then started his new career in the logging industry, first as a scaler and then bullbucker, working for Canfor at Nimpkish and Vernon camps until his retirement in 1985. A gifted carpenter/finisher, Bruce set to work on he and Betty’s retirement home at Cape Lazo. Built primarily with wood milled from the Alaskan sawmill and shakes from the North Island it was a labour of love and quite an accomplishment. A “take charge” type of man, Bruce was instrumental in the construction of the Air force Association 888 Wing building, served on the Wing executive and was still volunteering his carpentry skills for the association right up until he passed. Bruce loved and was good at hunting and fishing - still hunting at last year’s successful moose and deer hunting trip. All who hunted and fished with him loved to hear his many well-told stories. Bruce was an excellent shot once being the Alberta skeet shooting champion. Bruce’s memory was amazingly sharp. He could accurately tell you the time, date and name of all involved in his many stories. His family loved to hear him sing his funny songs and tell his descriptive stories at various reunions. He was in his glory last summer at his 90th birthday celebration surrounded by his family and friends. Bruce was fortunate to be able to travel to most parts of the world during his retirement and was still traveling a few months ago to play his favourite game “Let It Ride” in Reno.

401 - 11th Ave Bring some food to share, something to grill on the BBQ or even something that needs finishing off in the oven (they have full use of the kitchen)! They have the place untill 2 p.m., so that will provide plenty of time to play games with the kids

SPECIAL DOGS FOR SPECIAL HOMES IVORY 2 ½ YEAR OLD SPAYED FEMALE PITBULL BLUE HEELER MIX

Ivory is a very busy girl with a big personality. She needs a home with a consistent routine, obedience training, and a whole lot of running (with her people of course). She is full of energy and needs to be kept active and stimulated. Ivory does know basic commands, she walks well on a leash and really does love people interaction. A family that enjoys outdoor activities or someone who wants a new jogging partner would be ideal for her. Ivory has a lot of potential. Ivory should not be left alone outside unattended as she has been known to be a bit of an escape artist! Ivory will be a great candidate for training classes, and would be best suited to go to a home with older children that have good doggy etiquette. In the right home Ivory will be a wonderful girl!

DOUG 6 YEAR OLD, MALE LABRADOR CHOW CHOW MIX

D is a special boy who has had quite a life and needs a home that has experience with Doug d and people who will work with him. Doug never got much socializing which resulted dogs i some fearful behaviours. Doug is always happy and has become very social and loving in w all the staff and volunteers. He is a nice dog, but lacks the confidence a dog his age with s should have. With a bit of patience and consistency Doug will have no problem coming a around nicely. Doug walks well on a leash, loves hands on and knows basic commands. H He needs to go to a home with no other dogs, as he does get defensive when other dogs eengage him. He should not go to a home with cats and cannot go to a home with young cchildren. Older children or teenagers would be better suited to him. The ideal home for D Doug would be a single person or a couple who have owned dogs before and have a lot oof time to dedicate to him.

The BC Ferries’ Experience™ Card is an innovative product which has replaced the old Prepaid Paper Tickets. As of October 1, 2011, Prepaid Paper Tickets for Hornby Island and Cortes Island will no longer have a monetary value and can not be exchanged onto a BC Ferries’ Experience™ Card.

Paper has established a scholarship for the most well-rounded student, as selected by faculty, graduating from the Electronics Core certificate program. The recipient must be proceeding into the Industrial Automation diploma program and have excelled academically and with handson projects, as well as demonstrated leadership in the classroom. The scholarship will be first awarded in 2012 and is valued at approximately $3,000, which will cover both tuition and textbooks. Both programs are offered at NIC’s Campbell River campus. According to Don Gillingham, NIC’s Dean of Trades and Technology, students are the primary beneficiary of this exciting donation. “We are extremely grateful to Catalyst Paper for their support of our current and future electronics students. The equipment donation will further enhance the training of our Industrial Automation students by enabling NIC instructors to create additional hands-on, real-world industrial control projects, while the scholarship to assist an Electronics Core graduate to advance to the second level of study is a clear indication of industry’s need for highlyskilled individuals to operate today’s technologically-advanced workplace.” Rick Anglin, Catalyst’s Site Manager at Elk Falls, could not agree more. “Our primary motivation for the equipment donation and in setting up the scholarship is to ensure that we continue to address the skilled trades shortage – that we grow our own workforce.” In fact, it is Anglin’s hope that the scholarship recipients end up working on one of the Catalyst Paper mill sites upon graduation. In expressing his appreciation, Cory Batch, NIC’s Electronics Instructor, noted that Catalyst has long been a strong supporter of North Island College and its students. For more information about NIC’s Electronics and Industrial Automation programs, contact an NIC Student Advisor at 1-800-7150914 or visit www.nic. bc.ca/trades.

Donated backpacks of school supplies ease back-to-school strain About 80 students in Campbell River will receive a nice surprise in time for the new school year – a backpack filled with basic school supplies they likely would not have been able to afford otherwise. Earlier this summer, local TELUS Community Ambassadors gave 80 school bags filled with supplies to elementary, secondary and alternative schools in Campbell River, which will distribute them to students in need. Across Canada, nearly 9,500 students will receive a kit this fall, thanks to the

TELUS “Kits for Kids” program. This year, TELUS Community Ambassadors in Upper Vancouver Island rolled up their sleeves and prepared 80 school bags for young students in Campbell River, filling them with the necessary school supplies for each grade: pencils, glue sticks, notebooks, loose leaf paper, scissors, erasers, pencil cases, rulers, and much more. This initiative was part of the TELUS Day of Giving, an annual event during which TELUS team members from across Canada donate their time and

help local organizations. “Going to school in September is a challenging time for many young people. They don’t need the added strain of not being able to afford the basic school supplies all their friends have, not to mention the impact that can have on their ability to learn and grow. They deserve the same chance as every other student, and we’re determined to provide it to them,” said Gordon Cromer, President of TELUS Community Ambassadors in Upper Vancouver Island. “TELUS’ Community Ambas-

sadors are volunteers who are passionate about TELUS’ ‘we give where we live’ philosophy, and this work of equipping kids for school has been an integral part of the TELUS Community Ambassador tradition for many years.” Every year, TELUS Ambassadors provide volunteer services at community events and support dozens of philanthropic programs and initiatives. In 2010, they distributed more than 8,000 school bags to kids in need and nearly 10,000 comfort kits containing personal hygiene items to the homeless.

Strathcona Triathlon Club member competes at Beijing World Championship 15-hour-a-week training regime

Strathcona Triathlon Club member Sandra Milligan is off to Beijing, China to participate in the Triathlon World Championships.

The International Triathlon Union will be hosting the Triathlon World championship in Beijing, China on Sept. 10-11. Campbell River will be represented by Sandra Milligan, a member of the Strathcona Triathlon Club. She will compete in the age group Olympic distance event on Sunday. Milligan qualified to race at the world championship level in Kelowna at the Canadian Triathlon National Championships in 2010. She will compete at the Olympic distance which is 1500m swim, a 40k bike and a 10 k run. The Beijing event will be held on the same course as the 2008 Olympic triathlon competition where Canada’s Simon Whitfield won a silver medal.

Milligan said that she has been training hard for this event. “I train about 15 hours/week, with at least three workouts for each of the swim/bike/run and then yoga, weights and core exercises to stay limber and balanced,” she said. Milligan’s children are bemused by her workout regimen. They do not understand why mom would want to get up at 5 a.m. to do a three-hour workout before they get out of bed. However Milligan’s children along with her sister and nephew from northern B.C. will be in Beijing to cheer her on. For more information on the Beijing world championship events, race video and results go to http:// beijing.triathlon.org
