External agencies trash community plan Sustainability questioned, consultation ‘lacking’ KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Several outside agencies are rejecting the city’s new community plan. The Regional District, a First Nation council, the Ministry of Forests and the Agricultural Land Commission are among the latest groups to voice concerns over the Sustainable Official Community Plan. The plan, which is designed to shape the community’s future, needs to be adopted by council by Feb. 28, if the city wants to be reimbursed $160,000 it spent on creating the plan. But the city only forwarded the plan to external organizations in early January. The short timeline had most groups feeling the pinch. “This is clearly an unacceptable and unreasonable timeline for us to meet and respectfully request additional time to give due con-

sideration to this document,” said Jim Abram, regional director for Area C, on behalf of the Electoral Area Services Committee. “I speak for all of the Electoral Area Directors when we say we need more time to fully understand the draft Campbell River Sustainable Official Community Plan. “In its current form the plan is unacceptable.” Abram criticized the plan for limiting the provision of water services to Electoral Area D for fire suppression, and said the plan is not what it claims to be. “Campbell River’s ‘sustainability’ plan is not sustainable,” Abram said. “The plan proposes to locate high-density sub-divisions in Menzies Bay and in Jubilee Heights. In our view, these are unsustainable because of the extensive distances from Campbell River’s centre...this plan would actually increase greenhouse gas emissions.” The We Wai Kai said the document did not fully consult with First Nations, something it claims to be. “The participation of our Nation in the SOCP process is not to be construed as consultation,” said Brian Kelly, administrator for the We Wai Kai/Cape Mudge Band Council. “The document seems to provide a great deal of Continued on A3

It’s repeat season for TV thief Gordon Nelson pleads guilty, again, to stealing three TVs from Superstore PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

It was just another TV rerun for Gordon Nelson. Back in August 2009, Nelson received a jail sentence of two years less a day after pleading guilty to break and enter, possession of cocaine, and the theft of three flatscreen televisions from the Real Canadian Superstore. It was his 16th conviction for theft. O n M o n d ay, t h e 32-year-old was back in Campbell River provincial court pleading guilty to his 17th theft conviction – for once again stealing three TVs from the same Superstore. “ O b v i o u s l y, M r. Nelson is not easily

deterred,” noted Judge Thomas Dohm who sentenced Nelson in 2009. According to Crown prosecutor David Fitzsimmons, on Nov. 27, 2011, Nelson entered the Superstore at Discovery Harbour Mall and was seen on video surveillance walking into the warehouse at the back of the store. Nelson then climbed up to the second floor of the warehouse and proceeded to unwrap the plastic packaging protecting the televisions. The TVs, valued at more than $1,600 for all of them, went out the back door and have never been recovered. However, just like the first theft of three TVs in June 2009, store security identified Nelson’s face from the surveillance tape. Nelson also left his fingerprints behind, again, on the plastic wrap. Fitzsimmons asked Judge Dohm to impose a sentence similar to

the one Nelson received in 2009, as well as probation. Fitzsimmons reasoned that a maximum provincial sentence, followed by a lengthy probation order, would provide the public with more protection and would allow authorities to keep tabs on Nelson who has a long criminal record. Defence lawyer Mike Munro disagreed. He said Nelson pleaded guilty at a rather early date and the father of three young children has also found legitimate work when he he’s not in jail. “To his credit, he’s accepted responsibility,” said Munro, who asked the judge to impose a six-month jail sentence. Nelson didn’t say a word during his appearance by video, from holding cells in Victoria where he’s been for the past 72 days. Speaking on behalf

of his client, Munro also entered two other guilty pleas for breaching of a court order. Twice last year, Nelson was found in Campbell River when he was ordered to remain on Quadra Island. Judge Dohm said he would have been inclined to follow Munro’s suggestion of a six-month sentence, but wasn’t impressed by Nelson’s repeat performance. “This is a blatant and audacious theft. It is not a novelty for Mr. Nelson,” he said. Nelson was handed a one-year jail sentence for the latest theft and two six-month terms, to run concurrently, for the breaches. Nelson was given credit for time already served, and, following his release, will be on probation for 18 months. As well, during his p ro b at i o n , N e l s o n cannot go to any Real Canadian Superstore on Vancouver Island.

protectionism for the downtown core of the city at the detriment to other areas including First Nations lands.” Kelly said the plan goes into detail regarding consultation but fails to acknowledge what he says is the city’s duty to consult with First Nations. “First Nations are now leading players in many areas of the community,” Kelly said. “The problem is they are not being recognized as such.” Agricultural Land Commission staff also expressed concern with the document. “As the plan appears to include provisions that run the risk of inconsistency with the Agricultural Land Commission Act, it is important that changes be made to the plan,” said Roger Cheetham, regional planner with the Agricultural Land Commission. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations also found some holes in the plan. Maggie Henigman said the plan

neglected to address a number of things – such as protecting nearby great blue heron colonies and several bald eagle nest trees. “If, in future, these birds (blue herons) establish nests within Campbell River’s remnant forest stands we would hope you would provide appropriate protection by way of buffers, however this will obviously not be possible if the OCP (Official Community Plan) lacks the supporting language,” Henigman said. “For this document to truly represent a sustainable vision for Campbell River into the future, I suggest you include protection language for other species.” The Sustainable Official Community Plan will likely go before council again on Feb. 21 at which time council can choose to either adopt the plan or make any changes. If major changes are made, the plan would have to go through a second public hearing and would require two weeks notice. If council wants the $160,000 it will have to adopt a plan that many do not support.

ing grass trimming and manual mowing in all parks; reducing garbage pick-up in parks by 25 per cent; and reducing mowing and sports field maintenance by 50-70 per cent. Grass cutting in parks would be reduced from once per week to once every three weeks and grass clippings would not be bagged. Sports fields would be mowed once a week, instead of twice a week. Other service cuts under consideration include: increasing business license fees; having all economic initiatives such as Tourism, Visitor Information Centre, INFilm and Creative Indust r i e s c o - o rd i n at e d by Rivercorp which would allocate funding and manage activities; reducing council/ mayor travel and conference expenses; and reducing the city’s vehicle fleet. Council is also considering not participating in Communities in Bloom, which would save $26,000, as well as looking at increasing park user fees; reducing the number of Blackberry phones given to city staff; deleting the skate board park hosts; and exploring contract adjustments with Emterra in regard to garbage, recycling, and yard waste pick-up.

In addition, auxiliary firefighters would be expected to respond more frequently. “This additional response requirement may have an adverse effect on retention and morale,” Ciar niello said. Council will also consider closing the Sportsplex for either one year – freeing up $453,500 in the 2012 budget – or for six months which would mean a savings of $464,000. Closing the Sportsplex would mean eliminating facility rentals for special events such as the Hospital Foundation Trivia Night, Home Show, dances, toy and craft sale, and indoor sports tournaments, Ciarniello said. It would also displace 18 user groups such as the badminton club, Campbell River Volleyball Club, and Stroke Recovery Peer Support. Another option is to close Centennial Outdoor Pool, which would save the city $121,000 per year but cancel 216 hours of swimming lessons.

Dentist has plan to extract Dogwood Street pain out of city’s mouth KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A retired Campbell River dentist says he has the solution to the Dogwood Street traffic lights. Dr. Donald Neratini wrote a report for council with suggestions to ease what he calls the “Dogwood Street congestion problem.” Since the city implemented the three-way cycle, computer-controlled traffic lights in 2009, traffic on Dogwood has slowed. Council has fielded several complaints from the community regarding the lights and last week, Mayor Walter Jakeway welcomed Neratini’s suggestions. “This is how you get consulting done for free,” Jakeway said at last week’s council

meeting. Neratini, who uses Dogwood on a regular basis, said although there is not enough real estate to create dedicated left-turn lanes at the intersections, there are compromises to keep traffic moving while still keeping the advance left-turn arrows intact. “Currently, traffic moves only in one direction at any given time, leaving the other traffic stopped,” Neratini said. “I feel this is one of the biggest problems that could be easily addressed. The actual timing of the lights could be adjusted at each intersection, depending upon how busy it is.” Neratini said the solution is to first activate the green, left-turn arrows for both north and south

bound traffic at the same time for about 15 seconds, then turn to amber and then go out. “This would give any left turners a chance to make their turn, unobstructed, at the beginning of the cycle,” Neratini said. Then, vehicles in both the north and south lanes would receive the green light to travel straight through at the same time for at least another one and a quarter minutes before the lights go red. “Needless to say, left turns could be made at any time in the cycle, when it is safe to do so,” Neratini said. Any side street traffic and pedestrians would have a maximum waiting time of two minutes, until the

Dogwood Street cycle is complete. “In the event that there is no traffic approaching from the side streets, the Dogwood Street traffic would continue in both directions until vehicles or pedestrians arrive and wish to cross the street,” Neratini said. “If the side street traffic arrives one-and-a-half minutes or earlier during the Dogwood Street two-minute cycle, they would have to wait until the cycle is completed naturally.” If the traffic arrives after the Dogwood Street cycle has passed the one-and-ahalf minute mark, it would have to wait 30 seconds for the light to change in their favour, Neratini said. Once the light changes for the side street traffic, the

green light would be active for 30 seconds, or the recommended interval for a pedestrian to safely cross the street. Neratini said after the 30-second interval for side street traffic is complete, the two-minute cycle for north and south bound traffic would begin again. “I feel Dogwood Street should have traffic moving simultaneously in both directions and would run continuously until interrupted by traffic from the side streets,” Neratini said.

What to do about homelessness Coalition “ seeks pilot projects BRIAN KIERAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

With as many as 20 Campbell River citizens living under tarps and in makeshift shelters in alleys and the woods, the city’s Homelessness Coalition is inviting community organizations to come forward with emergency housing proposals. Coalition co-chair P a u l M a s o n s ay s the group will soon be adver tising for “expressions of interest” for pilot projects to address homelessness in Campbell River. Mason, who is the outreach co-ordinator for the Island Jade Society, says a 24/7, low barrier shelter is “absolutely” a priority. Low barrier means that a homeless person with addiction issues is not turned away. T he coalition is approaching the issue of homelessness from a “housing first” perspective. “That’s what the coalition is modelling its actions on,” Mason says. “It has been proven in many studies of people in that demographic that finding people housing has

very positive results. You find people housing first then you deal with the other stuff like addiction and mental health issues.” Mason believes Campbell River also needs a sobering centre similar to one in Victoria. Org anizations or companies interested in responding to the city’s request for expressions of interest have until Feb. 29 to send a preliminary submission to city hall. Information meetings to review the guidelines will be held Feb 10 and 16. Since coming into office Mayor Walter Jakeway has been concerned about a lack of progress at city hall when it comes to addressing the homelessness issue. In fact, he has put himself on the coalition because he says up to now it has failed to address the very problem it was created to solve. “The coalition hasn’t dealt with one homeless person yet, after three years. The same people are on the street. Nothing’s happened. Somehow the bureaucracy has constipated the process and they have not been able to get anything done,” Jakeway says. T h e m ayo r s ay s one of the possible solutions to the lack of 24/7, low barrier accommodation is the purchase of shipping containers that are

divided into compartments with two bunks in each compartment. “You’ve got sleeping accommodation for 20 people. It isn’t very nice but at least they aren’t sleeping in the woods. We have lots of people living in the woods,” he says. Jakeway is currently trying to identify a site where such a container shelter can be placed. Mason agrees with the mayor that there has been “a lot of talk, but little action.” “I think the mayor is right on track. It’s nice to see someone who actually understands the homeless and sees it as a huge issue in our city.” He says it is an absolute fact that “a fragile micro community” of 15 to 20 homeless are living in alleys and woods surrounding the city. “We’re not just talking about two or three people. We’ve had a tent population ... that live in the woods, that live under tarps and makeshift shelters.” The Salvation Army operates two shelters, but each has opera-

It is a “high barrier” facility. There are rules and one is that “guests” need to be sober. And it is not running at capacity. When the homeless leave these shelters in the morning many make their way to the Radiant Life Community Church behind the fire hall where Pastor Art Vander Holst and his volunteers serve a hot breakfast for up to 35 homeless people. The church also provides sleeping bags, tarps, clothing and toiletries. Vander Holst says between 25 and 30 homeless people are sleeping in alleys and the woods ... anywhere they can find shelter. He is “very supportive” of the mayor’s agenda. “That’s one of the things we don’t have here is a low barrier shelter.” He also agrees the city also needs a facility where the homeless can “get sobered up.”

We have a community committee that monitors weather reports. We relay that information to one another and then make a decision whether or not to activate the shelter.” The shelter on Cedar Street, which can open from November through to the end of March, is funded through the Crown agency BC Housing. It provides 12 mats, PJs, toiletries and a shower. BC Housing criteria dictates that the shelter can open when the temperature hits zero degrees Celsius or when wind, rain or snow conditions are extreme. It has been open continuously for the past three weeks. “It would be helpful if we were able to receive funding throughout the duration of winter,” Mack says. The extreme weather shelter is a “low barrier” shelter. Homeless people who are intoxicated are not turned away as long as they

City doesn’t want to get soaked by water park KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

City council was unable to commit last week to helping the Rotary Club with a water park for Willow Point Park. The park, which is a joint project between both local Rotary Clubs and the Campbell River Firefighters Association, is scheduled to be fully operational this summer, with construction to begin in April. According to the blueprints, the park would be divided into three sections – one for families, one for teens and one aimed at toddlers. The family section

is supposed to have a major attraction – a Mega Soaker, which would be the first of its kind in B.C. But at last week’s Tuesday council meeting, city staff weren’t able to guarantee the funding to provide the water or to provide ongoing maintenance for the park. A report to councillors recommended council provide $75,000 from the Parks Parcel Tax reserve in 2012 for the provision of utility services to the water park site, but when the item came up at the meeting the recommendation changed. Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager of parks, recreation

and culture, said upon further review staff recommended that council defer any decision to provide utility services for the water park to the 2012 budget deliberations. “Staff have reviewed the site servicing plan and it will cost $75,000 to provide utility services to the site and another annual $30,000 for maintenance and litter pick-up (as well a s ro u t i n e s a f e t y checks, annual servicing and electricity fees),” Milnthorp said. Ian Baikie, deputy fire chief, said the Rotary Club is still looking for about $50,000 to finance the project, but if council doesn’t make a deci-

sion by late March, the group could be in a tough spot. “We’d like to begin construction in April for a June start and if this decision is not made by April one, that would definitely be a problem,” Baikie said. Mayor Walter Jakeway said he would ensure there are no obstacles. “I think we should assure the Rotary Clubs that no matter where we are in the budget deliberations we (council) won’t slow you down,” Jakeway said. “If you need the money, we’ll come up with the money. “If you need to get going with your contractor, don’t let us

slow you down. We’ll catch up.” However, in a city financial document, the $30,000 for Willow Point Splash Park operations and the $75,000 for the utilities are on the “not recommended list” of service level change requests,

which were vetted by senior management. Despite that, council will still have the final say. “Should council wish, items can be taken from this list and included in the draft financial plan,” said Laura Ciarniello, the

Our View

Ottawa shifts burden onto next generation Canada’s finance minister last week put the final exclamation mark on the legacy of the Me Generation. After saddling our children with a burgeoning debt and allowing tuition fees to climb to a level that We say: They’ll puts post-secondary education tighten their belt out of reach for far too many when it suits their Canadians, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said that those under 50 purposes should not expect the same pension benefits enjoyed by their parents Speaking at an event in Oshawa, Ont. Friday, Flaherty said any changes to Old Age Security won’t take effect until at least 2020. It is the ultimate profile

in political cowardice. It is a move designed to shift the financial burden onto the next generation, thus mitigating the political risk of alienating Canada’s seniors and the political clout they wield. Yes, Canada’s debt is reaching unsustainable levels. And yes, governments at all levels need to take action to bring spending under control. But the government has an obligation to look at all areas for potential cuts and a duty to investigate any possible new revenue sources. Most importantly, the government must ensure that the sacrifice is shared by those from all walks of life and all income levels. But the Conservatives have kept any other trial balloons tethered tightly to the ground. Ottawa is

still committed to spending billions on F-35 fighter jets for the Canadian military. Prime Minister Stephen Harper hasn’t backed off his support of Bill C-10 and the funding it will commit to the construction of more prisons. And when a group of politicians of all political stripes — backed by provincial health officers — called for changes to Canada’s marijuana laws, the prime minister dismissed it out of hand. The Conservative government has shown it is in no hurry to tighten its belt on issues it has an appetite for, only a willingness to stick the next generation with the tab. – Black Press

Stealing grandkids’ future Reading in the Jan. 27 edition Brian Kieran’s alarming delusions of the current partisan raw log export war just makes me weep. The battle will soon be obsolete because all the trees and jobs these silly politicians are joisting about will be no more. As in Long Gone for a Long Time. Has Pat Bell been informed yet that the second growth forests his sawmill fantasy will utilize have already been cut and sold in the round? Does Dave Lewis of the TLA realize that his “uneconomic to harvest for domestic buyers” rant means unswerving support for the big landowners who are now pre-emptively logging juvenile saplings to sell to an offshore dunnage market that cares less if we turn BC into a bald rock? Has Cristy Clarke even a clue when she’s talking about community economics? Wake up folks, the current “falldown-then-overcut” timber industry is just another facet of what appears to be a consensus kleptocracy – brazenly stealing your grandchildrens’ future forests and local value-added jobs to make a fast buck today. And the money is more mobile than trees, so that will quickly vanish into offshore tax-free accounts as well, while the laggard politicians are still fighting over who killed the appurtenancy clause in what’s left of BC’s flimsy forest laws. This region used to be the proud home of the Tall Timber Jamboree. Do we really have to settle for stunted and malnourished 3rd growth plantations so soon? David Shipway

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

Communication is a two-way street. Not only do you have to be told what’s going on. You also have to ask what’s going on. The process of government informing people about what’s going on always interests me. And I’m not talking about government agents spying on the populace or compiling internet activity profiles and other civil liberty violations we all know is going on, right? I’m talking on a little more realistic and practical level. Whenever the city has a rezoning plan or a development approved nobody ever seems to have seen it coming. “We didn’t know anything about

this!” is a common refrain from Gordon Road, to the Old Island Highway and now to Peterson Road. And everywhere in between. Nobody ever seems to know anything about these developments. Is the city so secretive that it negotiates these developments behind closed doors – the infamous in-camera meeting? Not exactly. I’m not defending the city’s communication habits. I’d be the first to say they could connect with the community a whole lot better (if they had the money for it – a whole other discussion in this current fiscal climate). But you have to put out some effort to get information yourself. It’s more

reliable than expecting the city to do it. It’s not just people’s overwhelming sense of entitlement these days that makes them think they have to be spoon fed information from the authorities. It’s compounded by the fact that we’re all busy making our living; the issues are complex and perhaps require an engineering degree to fully understand; and the regulatory process is knee-deep in studies, rezoning bylaws and, yes, official community plans. The city has legal requirements to inform neighbours of pending development applications but people never seem to have received any of them if you judge by the constant parade of

public hearings. Now I can’t generalize about every development permit process that’s ever been done but explanations vary. A common one recently has been people finding out about a development that conforms to a rezoning that was done a decade or so ago. New residents arriving afterwards don’t get the rezoning notice because it’s already been done. “We were never informed!” – well, that may be because you weren’t here 12 years ago when the notice was sent out. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just pointing out what occurs and sometimes it’s just accidental. How you defend yourself against that happening is find out all you Continued on A11

North America floating on a sea of gas Premier Christy Clark’s recent fanfare about developing a natural gas export industry in northern B.C. included a major change in electricity policy. Last year Clark’s gover nment forced BC Hydro to trim its operations and keep its next two annual rate increases below four per cent. Part of the savings will come from redefining former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate strategy, which required BC Hydro to be self-sufficient in even low-water years, with no net electricity imports.

Today, Washington state producers are actually paying BC Hydro to take their excess power because they need to move it into the grid, and B.C. is the only place that can store it using dam capacity. NDP energy critic John Horgan is celebrating this change in BC Hydro policy. He says the government made a multi-billiondollar miscalculation by assuming California’s electricity shortage would continue indefinitely, and sur-

plus power would be profitable. He says independent power contracts are part of BC Hydro’s current financial problems, but political interference in planning is the bigger issue. Horgan would not endorse the Wilderness Committee’s call to cancel electricity purchase contracts BC Hydro has signed for more run-of-river developments.

Heck, find out about what the zoning is for your whole community. That’s what the official community plan is about. N ow, o f c o u r s e, that doesn’t take into account the fact that

a zoning is sometimes simply an application away from being changed. Instead of being spoon fed information, you have to seek it. The city has an obligation – a legal obligation – to inform you but you have an obligation to get the information yourself. It’s out there. Keep

Campbell’s greenhouse gas targets to be abandoned Continued from A11

ern Vancouver Island. Most are aboriginal partnerships. Energy Minister Rich Coleman told me no contracts will be cancelled, and he rejected my suggestion that BC Hydro could end up

with too much power in the wrong places and at the wrong time of year. BC Hydro can move power around as well as store it, and that ability will improve when the smart grid is completed. Independent power

doesn’t end there. It shifts to northern B.C., where three liquefied natural gas projects will need output equivalent to two and a half Site C dams to operate. Coleman confirmed that at least one modern gas-fired power plant will be needed

to develop LNG, which is expected to be in business before Site C could be built. That powerhouse will likely be built by the LNG developers, and used to back up new intermittent sources of offshore and land-based wind and any river or

geothermal sites available along a new northwest power line. B.C. will likely have a second gas-fired power plant in the northeast corner, to supply the Horn River shale gas development and processing plant now underway. Cole-

man says that plant should be able to capture carbon dioxide and sequester it deep underground. Fort Nelson and points north will remain off the BC Hydro grid. Even with carbon capture in the northeast, Campbell’s green-

house gas targets look to be the next part of his legacy to be abandoned. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress. ca

Explore Mayan calendar at the library Are you ready for the coming apocalypse? Many survivalists across the world are seriously preparing for an “end of days”, with one of the first deadlines being Dec. 21, 2012. Some see this as a literal world disaster, while others view it as a symbolic transition between levels of consciousness. On our calendars, for special days, we can find explanations such as Christmas or “Winter Begins.” Under the equiva-

lent of the date Dec. 21, 2012, would the Maya of 1,200 years ago have written an entire page of possible catastrophes, including “collision with big rock from outer space”, “communication with aliens” and “change to another species after entering galactic beam”? We probably will never know the annotations on the calendar of a typical Mayan kitchen. Less open to speculation are the basics of how the Maya counted days. Camp-

bell River resident Roy Myers, who holds

a PhD in astronomy, will present an illus-

trated program on the mechanics of the Mayan calendars at the Campbell River branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 6:30 p.m. Although he is acquainted with a number of disaster scenarios proposed for the end of the world in Dec. 2012, Mr. Myers will not attempt to persuade the audience to accept or reject any particular viewpoint. Instead, he would like to focus on three areas. First, he will explain

areas and even use manmade nest boxes. Barn owls are very infrequent visitors to Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) and usually the rescue calls are from farmers who find them in barns. So it was very surprising to be called to a residential home in Comox. “Ash” and “Sooty,” a mated pair of barn owls for reasons only known to them decided to play “Santa” and go down the chimney. Perhaps seeking shelter and warmth during the last cold spell, or looking for a cozy nest site, they entered the chimney, but were unable to go back up and landed in the hearth of a fireplace. Fortunately, for them and the homeowners, the fireplace had glass doors and a screen which prevented the owls from creating a mess in the living room. The two owls were snuggled together, covered in soot and ash and did not put up a struggle when removed from the fireplace. Ash, the female was having considerable breathing difficulties

either from soot inhalation or stress, but Sooty did not appear to be in any acute distress. Both owls were put in an incubator with a humidifier to help them breathe. They have now been relocated to an outside aviary complete with a nest box in case Ash is carrying eggs. Both are eating and gaining weight. If any farmers in the Comox area around the Dyke Road are interested in adopting these owls into a barn please contact us at 250-337-2021. This is a great reminder to homeowners who have open chimneys to make sure you have a grate or screen on top of the opening as not only owls but starlings and chimney swifts may also come looking for a warm sheltered spot and they can create havoc if they nest or find their way into your living area.

NIC students guaranteed entrance to UVic programs RENÉE ANDOR BLACK PRESS

North Island College students now have guaranteed admission and course transfer to many programs at the University of Victoria. The two post-secondary institutions recently signed an agreement allowing NIC students to use their academic performance at the college for UVic admission rather than their high school transcripts. “We really believe that North Island College can act as a hub for post-secondary education in our region,” said NIC director of college and community relations Susan Auchterlonie. “It’s another example of us seeking out partnerships with other post-secondary institutions to ensure that the residents of our region have access to an increasing number of degree completion opportunities.”

Jan Lindsay, president of North Island College.

NIC and UVic signed a dual admission ag reement, implemented this past September, allowing students accepted to UVic via their high school transcripts to take courses at NIC. Now, new and current NIC students can transfer over to UVic starting this September, using their NIC credits. This creates a previously unavailable admission guarantee

for mature students, current NIC students, individuals who may not have completed Grade 12, or students whose final high school grades may not have met UVic’s competitive first-year entry levels. NIC students must complete at least 24 University Studies credits, (eight courses), of UVic transfer courses, chosen with help from a NIC student adviser. Students who achieve a 2.0 Grade Point Average, (C letter grade), are guaranteed admission at UVic. Auchterlonie said UVic is a highly desirable university and the agreement is great news for NIC, but it’s good news for the university, too. “The University of Victoria’s done the research,” said Auchterlonie. “They know that students transferring in from colleges do exceeding well because they’re very well prepared, they

know how to study, they’ve learned the skills and they’ve done that from a place of comfort.” According to NIC president Jan Lindsay, increasing degree completion opportunities for the NIC region, through expanded partnerships with other post-secondary institutions, is an integral component of the college’s mandate. “At NIC, students have access to an ever-growing network of university partnerships and degree pathways,”Lindsay said in a news release. “Whatever degree or university a student may want, we are actively working to ensure that starting at NIC will get them there.” For more information, call 1-800-715-0914 to book an appointment with Kelly Shopland, NIC’s advisor for UVic admission programs, or visit www.nic.bc.ca.

For the fourth year, London Drugs is supporting the powerful Pink Shirt Day campaign with the official Anti-bullying Pink Shirt Day shirts available at the Campbell River store. The net proceeds from the $9.80 T-shirts directly support local Boys and Girls Clubs in communities across Western Canada. Boys and Girls Clubs foster self-esteem, social engagement, a c a d e m i c s u c c e s s, inclusion, acceptance, respect for self and others, and connection to community - all key elements of bullying

prevention. “We encourage everyone to take a stand against bullying and wear your pink shirt on Pink Shirt Day, Wednesday, February 29,” said Wynne Powell, London Drugs president and CEO. “We are proud to be supporting the fifth annual Pink Shirt Day with T-shirts sales going directly to Boys and Girls Clubs in each community we serve, helping to foster local anti-bullying programs.” In 2011, London Drugs raised more than $100,000 for Boys and Girls Clubs in Western

Canada through the Pink Shirt Day Campaign. Pink Day T-shirts are available at London Drugs in both adult and youth sizes ranging from small to XXL as well as online at www.pinkshirtday.ca CKNW started Pink Shirt Day five years ago following an antibulling stand of two grade 12 Nova Scotia students. The students took action after witnessing a Grade 9 student being bullied for wearing pink to school and encouraged their schoolmates to wear pink to send a message against bullying.

| CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR | WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2012

Elder College gardening series kicks off next week It’s getting to be that time of year again, when the daylight grows longer and hopefully the temperatures rise, so thoughts turn towards spring. Once more, many people start to long to get their hands dirty and get back to working the garden. So once again, Campbell River Elder College is offering another series of unique talks aimed at enhancing seniors’ green thumbs. The series begins Tues., Feb. 28, and runs for six weeks, starting at 1 p.m. Each week features a different gardening topic. Appropriately, the series kicks off with Preparing the Garden for the New Planting

Season under the guidance of Nigel Lambeth, owner of the Campbell River Garden Centre. Plant Physiology and Pruning is the title of week two’s session March 6, when Chris Trehearne will discuss plant makeup and how plants grow, with special attention to how to help them do that by prudent pruning. Invasive Plants is the topic March 13 with Barb Phipps, an experienced gardener who will explain how to deal with those nasty intruders: identification, elimination and proper disposal. And the ever-popular Growing and Saving Dahlias will be back again March 20 under expert Rick Monchak, who is always in charge

of that for the sell-out section of St. Peter’s Anglican Church Garden Sale. And last, but not least, on March 27, Dr. Thierry Vrain will be on hand as a knowledgeable soil biologist to talk about GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) and Responsible Care of the Soil. The retired biologist from the Department of Agriculture, who is also an avid gardener, is expected to provide a thought-provoking discussion. Fee for the series is $30, but members of Elder College can also sign up for individual classes at $7 each. Register in person at North Island College or online at www.nic.bc.ca/eldercollege

CROSSWORD

Hans Peter Meyer, the curator of this photographic exhibit on the recent history of logging, will be on hand to speak about his work. Meyer says that this exhibit is part of a larger project, a pictorial book project he is producing on logging in the 21st Century. Meyer is a writer and photographer living in the Comox Valley who grew up with logging. His family members worked in coastal logging from the 1930s

and up to recent times. “As a young man, I worked in the woods and on the booms, and then for several more years in reforestation also,” Meyer says. His photog raphs provide a record of both men and women working in this vital industry, often in remote and dangerous places, and celebrates an important aspect of the story of British Columbia. For information, call the Museum at (250) 287-3103.

Bantam Tyees advance to semi-finals The No. 1 Auto Body Bantam A Tyees have advanced to the Island Tier 2 semi-finals after thrashing the Oceanside Generals 8-1 Sunday afternoon at Rod Brind’Amour Arena. It was a must-win for the Tyees, who were facing elimination after a 3-2 upset loss to Port Alberni the weekend before. Tyees head coach Pe t e r M a r t i n w a s pleased with the way his players responded to the adversity. “ L o s i n g t o Po r t Alberni was a wake-up call,” he said, “Today everyone was much better prepared and brought excellent energy, intensity, and focus. We talked about kee ping our shots low and getting to the front of the net for rebounds.” The Tyees received a huge boost before the game with the return of a couple of key veterans to the line-up. Right-winger Travis Goodwin missed over two months with a broken ankle, while defenceman Joe Gage had been sidelined since mid-January with a concussion. Goodwin opened the scoring on

his first shift, snapping in a rebound just 90 seconds into the contest. Gage also hit the score sheet, blasting home a point shot in the third period. “Travis definitely adds some offensive pop to our line-up,” coach Martin said. “He scored the first time he touched the puck – unreal! And Joe adds a lot of stability to our defence. He’s a good puck-mover and has great vision.” The Tyees led 3-0 after the first period and 5-1 after two. They dominated from the opening face off, out shooting the Generals by a final count of 54-5. Goodwin’s line mate Tyson Goebel tallied twice for the Black and Orange. Singles went to Austin Simper, Gavin Rauser, Rio Massee, and Andy Stevens. Tyees Grady McInnes and Josh Coblenz each had a pair of assists. The Tyees travel to Victoria this weekend to take on the Juan de Fuca Grizzles in a one game, sudden death semi-final. The winner advances to the Island Finals against either Port Alberni or Saanich.

Who will be crowned King of the Hill? Skier cross is coming to Mount Washington. It is a race with humps and bumps and corners, where four skiers all race at the same time. This very exciting event was originally under the freestyle umbrella but it later became part of the ski racing umbrella. Which makes a person wonder who will win, a freestyler or a racer. Podium of Life Ski Academy co-owner Shane Harle says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have excellent skiers in our school, both racers and freestyle skiers. I do not know which style will come out ahead on this event. It may just

depend on who gets the best start.â&#x20AC;? This is a chance for skiers who are not in a competitive program to compete in this newest skiing contest. Podium of Life Ski Academy has invited Mat Leduc, a national calibre skier cross racer, to help coach their students prior to the event.

Coaches inspire at B.C. Games

A31

Kim’s Acupuncture & Acupressure Clinic 28 Years Experience

Coaches can sometimes be the unsung heroes of athletic success. The images we see in the media are of gold-medal-winning athletes standing on podiums with their coach nowhere to be seen. But almost without fail, athletes will credit their coach for their success ahead of anyone else. Coaches lead and inspire athletes from community programs to the Olympic and Paralympic podiums. At the BC Games, coach education and training is a priority with all coaches at the Games requiring certification from the National Coaching Cer tification Program. Coaches BC is the provincial organization responsible for coaching education programs and the ongoing support and development of coaches. “A coach’s preparation for the BC Games, or any other competitive environment, is just as important as an athlete’s preparation,” says Gord May, Coaches BC Executive Director. “Every successful athlete has been trained by someone who has taken the time to learn about the technical aspects of their sport and how to prepare their athletes both mentally and physically. Excellence will come about when you have the right tools and use them the right way.” The Provincial Sport Organizations involved in the BC Winter and BC Summ e r G a m e s h ave demonstrated that they are committed to coach development

Coaches play a vital role in the development of young athletes. A group of 232 coaches will lead more than a thousand athletes at this year’s BC Winter Games in Greater Vernon.

throughout the province. Many sports utilize the BC Games as a unique opportunity for coach mentorship and training. Karate BC developed a junior coach mentorship program as part of the BC Winter Games where youth coaches have the opportunity to work with a certified adult coach. Six coaches ranging in age from 15 to 18 years old will be part of the program at the 2012 BC Winter Games. “The BC Games is an ideal way of furthering (development of) our young athletes into future coaches,” says Fernando Correia, the Duncan-

based Provincial Advisor for Karate BC. “I am excited about our new program and I know that our junior coaches are looking forward to attending the BC Winter Games and having the opportunity to develop new skills under the tutelage of some of Karate BC’s best coaches.” Another successful mentorship program developed by the BC Games Society, Coaches BC and Promotion Plus, supports the education of female coaches. For Laura Watson, Technical Director with Coaches BC and ringette coach, this has been a terrific opportunity for both

her and her apprentice coach. “As I started out in coaching I wish that I had had an opportunity to study from a seasoned coach. It would have provided me with the opportunity to see how an effective coach really operates,” she says. “The BC Games experience that we have for our apprentice coach is absolutely the best experience that we could ever offer someone.” The dedication and commitment of coaches around the province strengthens the overall sport system and contributes to communities and social development.

Thank You!

For many, coaching is a way of life. Gary Ricks, a Level 3 certified coach at Key City Gymnastics in Cranbrook, reflects on the impact of coaching on his life. “Coaching helps you take stock of where you are now in all aspects of your life and how that compares to where you would like to be,” he says. Over his 31-year c o a c h i n g c a r e e r, Ricks has been no stranger to the BC Winter Games having attended over 12 times. It will be a family affair this year at the BC Winter Games in Vernon as Ricks coaches the Kootenays Zone 1 team; his wife Michelle is the Provincial Advisor for Gymnastics and his niece Madysen will be a competing athlete. The BC Games is an important step in the life of a coach, just as it is for the life of an athlete. These Games are a major springboard for coaches looking to move on up to the Canada Games and what they learn in this multi-sport environment will prepare them for future opportunities. A total of 122 head coaches and 110 assistant coaches will lead 1,148 athletes at the 2012 BC Winter Games, which run February 23-26 in Vernon.

Coming to Campbell River MICHAEL CAMPBELL ~One Day Only!~ Friday, March 2nd

Johnathan Hinds (left) and Phillip Marchand make up the acoustic guitar duo Fiftieth Parallel who will be performing Feb. 17 at Island Style Creative Studio.

Fifitieth Parallel shows off their Island style The reception of Fiftieth Parallel’s debut album, Weapon of the Future, has been fantastic. Since its release in December their music has spread far and wide beyond Vancouver Island. The duo consists of Jonathan Hinds on acoustic guitar and djembe, and Philip Marchand on acoustic guitar. Combining the acoustic sounds of Australian guitarist John Butler and the influential Michael Hedges with the hypnotic sounds of Kyuss and Pink Floyd, Fiftieth Parallel has cre-

ated a unique style that only adds to the already dynamic Vancouver Island music scene. During their recent performance at Nesbitt’s Island Coffee on the verge of a winter storm, they “played up a storm of the wild and wonderful kind” that “left the place echoing.” And with plans for a tour in the pipeline, they’re counting on the fact that they can repeat the feat. On Feb. 17 you can catch Fiftieth Parallel performing at Island Style Creative Studios –

on Shopper’s Row opposite the Foreshore park. Doors open at 7 p.m. and music runs 8-10 p.m. Tickets can be found at Island Style Creative Studios for $7 in advance, $10 at the door. Fiftieth Parallel’s full-length album Weapon of the Future is now available for $15 at: Serious Coffee, Willow Point; Impressions Art Supplies, Shopper’s Row; Nesbitt’s Island Coffee, near the Tidemark Theatre; and at MusicPlant in downtown Campbell River.

Meow! Old Willow Point Hall turns into cathouse PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

S

taid ol’ Willow Point Hall became a cathouse Saturday night when the feisty felines

of Sweet Tease Burlesque took over the stage in a pur-r-rfect prelude to Valentine’s Day. They scratched, they pranced and they spanked to the delight

of the packed house who rollicked with the risque show. “I just love the Willow Point Hall. It’s small, it’s lovely,” says Heather Gordon, one of the lead pussy cats.

Oh yes, there was even a few songs, including one by Stray Cat Sue who sang about pussy cats…sort of. Anyhow, it had the crowd laughing and singing along too. “It’s just a lot of fun. That’s what this is all about,” says Gordon, who helped form the group five years ago. For many years Gordon ran a dance school in Campbell River. She also has a fine resume in musi-

cal theatre. And then there’s a bit of a punk streak that runs through Gordon. When it came time for her to do something different, it all added up to the Sweet Tease Burlesque gig which is still going strong. “All of us are originally from Campbell River. Three have now moved to Vancouver, but they all come back for this,” she says. This is not a full nudity act, but rather strip tease. Classic burlesque, Gordon

calls it, recalling the days of vaudeville and music hall style shows. “It started with a couple of girls and we found a home at the bowling alley,” she recalls. “It grew into a core group of six to eight girls, and we had some big successes with our Halloween shows.” From Sointula to Quadra Island, and many other scratching posts as well, the Sweet Tease felines have entertained a variety of audiences who keep coming

back for more. Gordon believes it’s because everyone works together so well. “We’re much more of an ensemble. There are no stars; we don’t work that way,” she says. “We really support each other and that’s not the same as a lot of burlesque shows.” Gordon promises there will be more shows. To learn more about Za Za, Lovely Lola Peach, Lucky, Tia, Cherry, Sue and Tiger Lily, visit their Sweet Tease Burlesque Facebook page.
