Search: Worst-case scenario for retrieval encountered by rescuers Continued from Page A1

to recover the deceased pilot from Thursday’s (April 28) plane crash on Mt. Hkusam. The Provincial Emergency Program tasked CRSAR to locate the wreckage and remove the body of the pilot from the wreckage. Two members flew a recon flight Friday night to locate and deter mine the best way to remove the deceased from a very steep mountainous area. The removal was hampered by the fact that the wreckage was on a very steep snowcovered slope. Once we assessed the area, we realized it was a worst-case scenario for an easy retrieval. The wreckage had come to rest at the base of a vertical cliff face, on a 50-degree slope right below an active avalanche chute and right beside another very large slide path with a large overhanging cornice. We determined we would need to bring in an avalanche technician to assess the risk. Saturday morning two members of the alpine rescue team with the avalanche tech flew to the site by helicopter and the tech determined that the slope, while risky, was manageable due to the snow conditions and the fact that it was early a.m., when the snow was still frozen. The helicopter pilot

did what is referred to as a “toe in” where the helicopter doesn’t actually touch the ground but hovers adjacent to the slope and the two techs climbed out onto the skid and lowered themselves to the ground. The snow conditions were decent at the time and we were moving unaided (un-roped) on a steep slope, in about knee-high snow. The helicopter flew overhead with the avalanche tech keeping an eye on the slope and weather conditions The recovery was quick and we managed to remove the deceased to a safe location off the mountain. We had to remove the alpine techs sooner then planned as the weather changed, but the operation went off without a hitch and the risk was managed well. The deceased was turned over to the coroner’s service and crews flew back to Campbell River. Stranded hiker On Sunday night we received a call that a helicopter rescue team was to be utilized in a rescue call Monday morning. A man and two dogs had been hiking on the north side of Cameron Lake – just west of Coombs – and had become trapped on a steep ledge where he could no longer safely go up or down.

THEY SAID IT: “The wreckage had come to rest at the base of a vertical cliff face.” – Grant Cromer, Campbell River Search & Rescue Co-op instructor

That night the Ar rowsmith SAR team had attempted to rappel down to the subject, but the rescue had been hampered by very steep and unstable terrain as well as darkness. The man and his dogs as well as the threemember rope rescue team spent a cold night trapped on the side of Mount Wesley. Campbell River SAR’s special helicopter rescue team flew to the site early Monday morning to rescue the subject, his dogs as well as the three SAR members. Conditions at the time were terrible. It was blowing very hard at the higher elevations with sleet and heavy rain, and very cold temperatures. There was a lot of low cloud too we had to work in and that hampered us from even seeing the subject. We were grounded for several hours while we waited for the fog to clear. We managed to find a small break in the weather and we sent

ing to watch it blow in and out. A decision was made to abort the operation with the 407 helicopter and call in the Cormorant from 442 Rescue Squadron at CFB Comox. Basically, they are better equipped to hover in unstable weather. The three SAR members were subsequently removed uninjured by the Cormorant. For our first heli-rescue operation it went very well considering the conditions we had to work in. We will be modifying our response to evacuate dogs on future calls. The dogs threw a wrench into the rescue as we don’t have a harness or equipment to lift a dog out; all of our harnesses are designed for humans. We do need to purchase some kind of rescue harness for dogs as we seem to get a lot of dog rescues and a lot of people hike with dogs so it’s bound to happen again. We will be fundraising for a suitable harness for dogs and hope to use it in the future.

The tech had to find a route down the steep slope with the dogs as they had become a g g re s s ive at t h e thought of a ride on the end of a 200-foot line, doing 40 kilometres an hour in a blowing snow storm. The SAR member managed to find a way down the slope and was picked up by ground resources. The weather moved in again and the three SAR rope rescue members were unable to get to a location where the rescue helicopter, a Bell 407, could access them due to terrain and weather conditions. This was the first time we have used our heli-rescue team in an operation. We trained last summer and this was the first opportunity we have had to use this resource. It was a constant fight against the cloud ceiling. We needed to extract the three members from an altitude of about 2,500 feet, but we need to work 200-300 feet above that with the helicopter, and the cloud bank was stuck at 1,900-2,200 feet.

The next night in Vancouver, at the Ma Murray Awards for B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Association, the Mirror took second place for Best Collaborative Ad in the over 25,000 circulation class. The silver went to Mirror advertising representative Cynthia Dunsmore and creative consultant Rachael Beckley who teamed up to create an eye-popping ad to promote a paint sale at the local Home Hardware store.

This Ain’t Your Dad’ s Metal Roof Campbell River homeowners discovering the benefits of “Ironwood Shake” roofs Advertorial Ironwood Shake and Tile With Spring upon us, many Campbell River homeowners are thinking about replacing their aging roofs after a nasty wet season. Although there are just about as many roofing options as there are rainstorms in a Vancouver Island winter, more and more homeowners are choosing to invest in a roofing material known as “Ironwood Shake,” a type of metal roof that many say strikes the perfect balance of beauty, durability and affordability. “Often when people hear ‘metal roof’ they immediately think of those longform metal roofs that you see on barns and country houses,” says Len Anglin, owner of Ironwood Shake and Tile. “But Ironwood Shake looks just like other high-end roofs, like concrete tile. You wouldn’t even know it’s metal to look at it.” Ironwood Shake is just

Advertorial

Forget everything you think you know about metal roofing! Permanent metal roofs, such as these Ironwood Shake roofs, are beautiful, eco-friendly and last forever. one style of what Anglin calls “permanent metal roofs,” a category that also includes European tile and heavy shake styles, as well as a stunning new “Iron Slate” profile that was introduced on Vancouver Island just this year. Like concrete tile roofs, Ironwood Shake is guaranteed for life, has great “curb appeal” and tends to considerably increase the value of a home. However, concrete tiles can become

porous if not treated regularly, and their incredible weight – about 10 pounds per square foot – essentially makes concrete a non-option unless the home was built with a specially engineered truss. Ironwood Shake, on the other hand, can be installed over just about any existing roof, and once installed the roof lasts for decades without any maintenance. In Ontario, says Anglin, there are homes with 100-year-

old metal roofs that still look great. Another explanation for Ironwood Shake’s rise in popularity is its growing reputation as an ecofriendly roofing option. Its heat-reflecting properties have earned it an Energy Star rating and the manufacturer is located in nearby Surrey, which means fewer emissions due to transport. In addition, the roofing materials are recyclable and therefore don’t end up in

landfills, and rainwater running off an Ironwood Shake roof is free from toxic waste from oil refining, a concern with cheaper asphalt or fiberglass shingle roofs. Anglin, who lives in Courtenay and has been in the metal roofing industry for more than 35 years, says he’s installed “thousands” of permanent metal roofs on Vancouver Island. In fact, he’s never installed any other type of roof. “I have no confidence in

them,” he explains. “If you want a beautiful, eco-friendly roof that will last forever and increase the value of your home, you can’t do better than a permanent metal roof. It’s the least expensive architecturally designed metal roof on the market, yet it’s superior in many ways to other materials. I absolutely believe this is the best product and the best price.” To learn more about Iron-

wood Shake and other permanent metal roofing options, visit www.ironwoodshakeandtile.com and www.vancouverislandsbestroof.com.

Hydro to fence off death trap KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A power-generating canal that has been a “torturous” death trap for Roosevelt elk will be fenced off by BC Hydro. The Salmon River diversion canal, located west of the city and commissioned in 1958 to divert water from the Salmon River into the Lower Campbell reservoir, is a threekilometre long concrete flume that has been the deathbed of at least five elk in the past two years. Particularly in the winter, when everything free z es, it’s believed the elk slip and slide down the three-metre high concrete walls. “They fall in and once they get their hooves wet, they can’t get out,” said Mike Gage, director of the Campbell River Salmon Foundation who found one elk carcass in the canal last spring and has seen pictures of four others. “It’s a horrible death, it’s not a quick death and they suffer.” He said when the canal is empty of water, the elk starve to death and if it’s full, they drown. “It’s a tor turous

death for the elk and it’s so unnecessary,” said Gage, who has been fighting to have the canal fenced off for nearly two years. He was disappointed when the Salmon Foundation and the Sayward Fish and Game Club’s joint application for a wildlife fence was turned down. S t e p h e n Wat s o n , spokesperson for BC Hydro, said the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program, which is a partnership between BC Hydro, the province and Fisheries and Oceans Canada that sets aside $1.6 million each year for projects that help manage the impact BC Hydro facilities have on the environment, rejected the proposal because it did not address the highest ranking issues

in the coastal area. But BC Hydro, as facility owner, conducted its own review into the public safety risk the canal presents and possible safety mitigation measures and as a result has decided to fence off the canal to limit potential falls. “The implications could be serious from a three-metre fall into the canal if dry, or possibly drowning if water is being diverted,” said Watson. “BC Hydro is committing to the community that it will fence the length of the canal on both sides. The eight inch wood post and wire fence should address both public safety risk and prevent wildlife incidents. The fence can direct elk across the existing four bridges. Some sections of the

canal will require chain link fencing, where danger to the public is greater and a higher level of access prevention is desired.” Watson said the work, which will cost about $500,000, is expected to take about two months to complete and is anticipated to begin in late summer 2011. The Salmon River Diversion Canal is typically used to divert water in the fall and late spring, early summer. BC Hydro only uses the canal when there is enough water in the Salmon River to do so and only when there is a need to divert water. This year, with so much water expected to come from the upcoming snow melt, Hydro has yet to divert any water from the river and has no immediate plans to do so.

A notorious town eyesore is slowly becoming more pleasant to look at. The old Hillcrest Store, on the corner of 9th Avenue and Dogwood Street, will soon be the new home of the Campbell River Head Injury Support Society, which is renovating the entire building. “It’s an eyesore. You drive by and that corner is abysmal to look it,” said Shelley Howard, executive director of the Head Injury Support Society. “When we purchased the building we noticed afterwards that there was a lot wrong with it. The roofing was done three and

a half years ago and we found out it was done by one of those fly by night companies. It leaks and there’s no one to go after. That was a shocker.” Howard told city council on Tuesday night the society is ready to begin renovations, which will be costly, particularly the tubed fencing that will go up around the property to deter vandals and graffiti artists. “We have found a fence but it is a little costly, $32,000, because it is metal, but it will definitely improve the look of the corner,” said Howard. Coun. Ziggy Stewart agreed the corner does not look good. “Anything we can do

Once finished, there will be four living units on the top floor, with offices on the bottom. Outside a communal garden will provide therapy for the clients and a special area of the garden will be set aside to grow food for the food bank. Clients can rent out the suites on a scale based on their income.

Jailed man pleads guilty to another break and enter, gets additional day’s jail PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A long-time offender currently behind bars has pleaded guilty to another vessel breakin. Last December, Wade Cahill, 41, received a one-year jail sentence – less 96 days for time already served – after pleading guilty to stealing items from a local grocery store as well as breaking into a boat moored at Quathiaski Cove on Quadra Island. On Sept. 7, 2010, Cahill and a female accomplice broke into the Seymour Winds and were seen leaving the dock with a 33-inch television, laptop computer, DVD player and a sleeping bag. The next day, the two were arrested after Cahill stole items from the Real Canadian Superstore in Campbell River. During his sentencing hearing in December, the court heard that Cahill had been

addicted to cocaine for the past 15 years. He entered guilty pleas to the two charges in order to help turn his life around. “He told me he’s getting too old for this lifestyle and wants to get his life together otherwise he might die in jail,” said his lawyer, Chantal Sutton, on Dec. 13, in provincial court. But what the judge didn’t hear about was the Sept. 4, 2010 breakin of another vessel. In that instance, Cahill and the accomplice broke through a locked hatch, soiled a mattress and made off with liquor. However, Cahill left behind a finger and palm print on a bottle in the boat’s refrigerator. On Monday, in Campbell River provincial court, Cahill appeared by video from jail cells in Victoria. He pleaded guilty to the Sept. 4 break-in, but Crown prosecutor Bruce Goddard said the crime should have

been included during the sentencing hearing last December. Regardless, the jail ter m would have been about the same and so Judge Brian Saunderson imposed a one-day jail sentence to be served concurrently with his

Drive Smart BC Left Turn Into 2X14 the Wrong Lane

Woman bilks welfare of $20,000 PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

I’ve noticed a new way to do left turns onto a TYEE busy CHEV four lane highway near my home. You stop at the stop sign on the side road, look both ways, then turn left, head on into the left turn lane on the highway. Once there, you check behind and move right into the fast lane if there is room. If not, you stop and wait until there is room to proceed. This does make life exciting if there is oncoming traffic wanting to use their left turn lane but it helps avoid the highway traffic that rarely slows to the posted 60 km/h limit. I’ve often thought that selfish drivers on the highway can’t see a reason to slow from 90 until they are trying to enter the highway from a side road here. The trouble is, they don’t seem to remember that difficulty when the duty is to slow for other drivers. When the driver on the side road stops and yields to traffic on the highway close enough to be a hazard, the rules then allow them to proceed with caution. Traffic on the highway must now yield and let the driver enter. Never rely on right of way in this situation as it is unlikely that traffic on the highway will yield. Don’t make a practice of this new method of turning left. It’s illegal! One must always make the turn to arrive in the first available lane to the right of the center line before you leave the intersection. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www. drivesmartbc.ca. Cst. Tim Schewe (Rtd.), DriveSmartBC

A local woman won’t be going to jail after defrauding welfare of more than $20,000. Paula Young, 61, was given a six-month con-

ditional jail sentence on Monday in Campbell River provincial court after pleading guilty to theft over $5,000. T h e C row n a l s o obtained a standing restitution order of

$20,359 against Young. That’s the amount she defrauded social assistance of from Sept. 1, 2007, to June 30, 2009. During that period, Young was receiving welfare but was also

receiving additional revenues which she failed to disclose to the province. Young, who has some mental health issues, told the court she didn’t fully understand the rules and did not

intentionally defraud the social assistance program. She had no previous criminal record and the conditional sentence did not include a condition for house arrest.

The following question will be asked of the Registered Voters of the Wei Wai Kum First Nation by ballot:

12:50 p.m., a thief tried to gain entry to the restaurant, located on the North Island Highway, but failed to get inside. But on Monday, sometime around 2:30 a.m., there was another break-in to the cafe. This time the culprit broke a window, went inside and then fled with a quantity of liquor. The police dog was unable to track the thief, but did help find additional evidence.

RCMP continue to investigate these incidents, as well as an attempted break-in at the Best Buy Liquor Store, located at the Elm Street Plaza on Dogwood Street. On Sunday, at 8:05 a.m., investigators found the front door damaged, but the culprit had failed to get inside. And on April 27, at 8:40 p.m., residents in the 600 block of Otter Rd. reported hearing a

door being forced open. The resident explored the disruption and discovered the home had been forcibly entered. A male suspect was then spotted fleeing the scene in an awaiting vehicle.

Road user safety tips for Bike to Work Week, May 30 to June 5 Bike to Work Week is just five weeks away and with longer, warmer days, more cyclists will be on the road. According to ICBC there are approximately 1,300 crashes and 1,400 injuries involving cyclists each year in B.C. By following the rules of the road and respecting all road users we can lower the number of accidents. Both drivers and cyclists need to yield to pedestrians and follow stop signs and red lights. Here are some tips from ICBC to keep yourself and others safe while driving: ■ No. 1 – Keep your eyes on the road Actively look for cyclists on the road. If a cyclist is near, make eye contact with them

to indicate that you have seen them. The other form of communication cyclists’ use are hand signals. Make sure you are familiar with the hand signals, if not, take a moment to refresh your traffic skills. ■ No. 2 – Keep your distance Drivers must keep at least three seconds following distance away from cyclists. Keeping this distance will give you more time to react safely as bicycle movement can be unpredictable. When passing a cyclist, make sure you leave enough room between your vehicle and the bicycle. It is also important to shoulder check, especially when opening your vehicle door or when making right turns.

■ No. 3 – Be considerate Cyclists are vulnerable road users. They do not have the physical protection vehicles have. Only use your horn when warming a cyclist. A loud honk

Campbell River Christian School business education and foods class wants to be part of the solution to eradicating global poverty Youth from the Campbell River Christian School are presenting an Opportunity International Canada MarketDay today. They are raising awareness and funds for microfinance programs in the developing world to help eradicate world poverty. Microfinance is a concept developed to alleviate chronic world poverty through lending to the poor. In 2006,

the Nobel Peace Prize was given to an organization in Bangladesh using the microfinance model. Opportunity International has been using this model successfully in almost 30 countries since 1971. Participants in the Opportunity MarketDay will set up shops, like a city or country market, selling their creative products and services. The profit they make will be

donated to Opportunity Inter national Canada to create small loans for the entrepreneurial poor. The youth learn the valuable lessons of the challenges of building a business with limited start-up funds – effectively demonstrating the almost hopeless challenge 600 million poor but creative entrepreneurs face every day. The Campbell River

Christian School Opportunity MarketDay will be held 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. in the school gym. For more information about Opportunity International Canada, visit www.opportunityinternational.ca and to find out how to get involved with an Opportunity Market Day, e-mail Leona Marks at lmarks@ opportunityinter national.ca.

Her father works as a security guard earning a minimum wage of 8,000 pesos or approximately $180 Canadian per month. She has two younger siblings and the family lives in a one room house, fetching water from a community tap. Their diet consists of rice supplemented with snails and edible herbs gathered from

the forest and river. She is on the honour role at school and dreams of becoming a teacher. The funds will boost Angelica and her family as they face the difficulties of living in the developing world.

Hop aboard the Misty Isles for a cruise to Mitlenatch Island, one of four trips planned by the Cortest Museum this year.

Explore Mitlenatch Island Cortes Island Museum’s first cruise of the season sets sail for Mitlenatch Island on Sat., May 14 aboard the 43-foot gaff-rigged Misty Isles. While on board, skipper and naturalist Mike Moore and his wife, Samantha, will share a wealth of information and stories about this wildlife sanctuary in the Salish Sea. Once on land, walk meadows ablaze with Death Camas, Columbia and chocolate lilies plus sea blush, monkey flowers and field chickweed. Search rocky outcrops for prickly pear cactus growing in the warm, dry environment of Mitlenatch Island. Search for owl pellets as you hike island trails and beaches. Watch territorial and nesting activities of many native birds.

Slowly cruise in a zodiac around the shores of Mitlenatch to glimpse seabird cliff rookeries, and Steller and California Sea Lions. Mitlenatch Island, which is a provincial park, is the largest bird sanctuary in the Salish Sea, favoured for nesting because it’s protected from predators. Mitlenatch, which lies in the rain shadow of mountains that make rain clouds drop more than half their moisture on Vancouver Island, has an annual rainfall of only 75 cm (30 inches), compared to 153 cm in Campbell River. For $115, cruise participants will travel on the 8:30 a.m. ferry from Campbell River to Quadra, take the 9:05 a.m. ferry from Heriot Bay to Cortes for a 10:30 a.m. departure from Cortes Bay.

On Cortes free shuttle service is available between the ferry and Cortes Bay. Bring a lunch, binoculars and spare shoes. For more information on this and other Cortes Museum tours call Lynne Jordan at 250-9356472 or e-mail cimas@ twincomm.ca or leave a

message at the museum 250-935-6340. Upcoming trips include a dinner cruise to Okeover Inlet June 19, a two-day visit to the waterfalls of Toba Inlet June 11-12 and a new day trip this year to Cassel Lake waterfall in Teakerne Arm

Discover the priceless tidal treasures of this amazing region. Enjoy the beauty of intertidal life. On Wednesday, May 18, from 12-2 p.m., the Museum at Campbell River will offer a guided walk along the intertidal seashore. Biologist Sandra Milligan will lead a journey of discovery to the tip of the real Willow Point. The walk will look closely at all that “seaweed” and discover dozens of animals and algae, from crabs and chitons, to gastropods and gumboot chitons. You’ ll hone your observational skills to find the most elegant of intertidal life: the opalescent nudibranch and the flexible arm brittle stars. Once you know the names of your new friends, you’ll discover the amazing strategies they’ve developed to live in this challenging environment. It will be a day to remember and an investment for future enjoyment of intertidal life. Dress for the weather, including rubber boots and a spirit for adventure. Please note that the walk can be extremely slippery and wet. The cost for the Intertidal Walk is $10. Call the Museum at 287-3103 to register.

Why you dirty rat – Carihi stages Bugsy Malone Students at Carihi have been hard at work on this year’s Musical Production of Bugsy Malone, a musical comedy set in the 1920’s, spoofing the old gangster films of the times. Instead of machine guns, there are splurge guns that shoot silly string. Instead of hand guns, there are pies in the face. And on top of all that there is great music and a love story. The students are looking forward to opening night. “It is a lot of work, but it’s completely worth it in the end” says Jillian Legare, who plays “Knuckles” in the musical. Director Bill Young is pleased with how the students respond to the pressure. “They are really stepping up and working hard. It’s going to be a great show.” The show runs from May 12-15 on the Carihi stage. Curtains open at 7 p.m. and doors open at 6:30. There are matinees on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at the Carihi office for $10 each, or at the door.

CAROL SHEEHAN Bach, Vivaldi, Kreisler Chopin, Bruch – bringing them all together, Blaine Waldbauer of Campbell R ive r a n d D a n i e l Dowker have designed a stunning violin piano recital that is both ambitious and delightful. As founder and concer tmaster of the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra and popular teacher of violin, Blaine Walbauer has had little time in recent years to follow what he describes as “the unwritten protocol” or tradition of orchestra concertmasters to perform in a solo recital. “It’s the opportunity for the concertmaster to demonstrate just why a musician owns

that position – has in effect, earned the first chair,” says Walbauer. “Our program pushes some limits and is wonderfully challenging. It is designed to move our audience through the sheer power of the music.” Audiences are guaranteed to be moved with this prog ram – especially those starved for live chamber music and concerto duets – that opens with Jo h a n n S e b a s t i a n Bach’s Partita No. 3 in E Major for solo violin that requires masterful bowing technique. “There are lots of notes in this piece,” says Walbauer, “and every time I play it, I find something new or different to appreciate. Following the Bach will be two movements from Antonio Vivaldi’s

Blaine Waldbauer and Daniel Dowker will perform a violin and piano recital May 14. The Vivaldi will be Le quarto stagioni – The Four Seasons – a followed by the long timeless set of violin lyrical phrases and concertos composed rich textures of Fritz in 1723. The varied tex- Kreisler’s Praeludium tures of each concerto and Allegro. One of are a musical reference the great standards for to the season for which violin, the piece was it is named. Walbauer composed in 1918. Pianist Daniel Dowkwill perform, appropriately, La Primavera er’s solo performance (Spring) and L’estate of Frédéric Chopin’s Ballade No. 1 in G (Summer).

Minor, Op.23 will highlight this young pianist’s mastery of one of the most challenging pieces in the standard piano repertoire. Chopin is often credited with developing the ballade as a form of music associated with poems. Many of the passages in this work require rapid scale changes and difficult fingerings. The Blaine Walbauer – Daniel Dowker Violin Piano Recital takes place at St. George’s United Church, Courtenay on Saturday, May 14 at 7 p.m. (Doors open at 6:30.) Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, and are available at the door. Advance tickets may be purchased at GotitNeedit-Wantit Musical Instruments, Courtenay (250-338-8807).

The boxes, which are worth $750, contain a tent, blanket and all the equipment someone would need to survive after a disaster. The disaster boxes are purchased and distributed through Disaster Aid Canada, which is supported by the Rotary Club. The organization also has family survival packs that have allowed Disaster Aid Canada to connect several tents to form schools, hospitals and even community centres. To pick-up ($110) and pre-order wood ($150), please call Barb Izard at 250-923-9500 ext. 218 or e-mail barb.izard@ sd72.bc.ca

Our View

Democracy in B.C. lives Just as the fight against global terrorism hasn’t ended because Osama bin Laden was exterminated, the opportunities for democracy to We say: Pressing work its magic haven’t ended with the close of another federal election. matters involve With little chance to take a deep breath and reflect on the new politiour active cal landscape here and in Ottawa, participation British Columbians must now turn their attention to a couple of other pressing matters that will affect them. One is the harmonized sales tax. The B.C. government is out to seal the deal. It’s using key ministers to

facilitate phone-in “town hall” meetings for residents around the province, as a way to hear suggestions and opinions about the oft-maligned HST, and give its own justification for keeping the consumption tax intact. The meetings have proven popular so far, showing that people around the province are engaged in the information-gathering process – and in democracy. The other democratic action available to us is completing the 2011 Canadian census. While everyone must answer the basic short-form census, one third of us will have to choose whether to answer Statistics Canada’s lengthier National Household Survey. Before you think about turfing the NHS

forms, remember that detailed data paints an important social and demographic picture of communities for planners, from the municipal level on up to the feds. That information goes a long way toward determining where money needs to be spent, on health care and public works infrastructure, and community amenities such as libraries. Census data also helps the academic world contribute valuable research on demographic and social trends in our cities and towns. Whether or not you voted Monday, remember that your opinion and contributions matter to us all. – Black Press

Good point: Language A language barrier is a big challenge people face when they are in a multicultural setting. In spite of the popularity of English, there are thousands of languages in the world and not everyone knows English. As Campbell River is moving towards a diverse and energetic community that attracts more and more immigrants, language barrier becomes one of the utmost important problems that needs to be dealt with. Currently, the Immigrant Welcome Centre of Campbell River, also known as Campbell River and Area Multicultural and Immigrant Services Association, (MISA) has a list of interpreters that help service providers to communicate with people who know a little or no English. But there is exciting news. Four interpreters participated in an online interpreter-training course developed by the Provincial Language Service under the Provincial Health Services Authority. Upon finishing the course, they have the knowledge and skills to provide community interpretation skills. A trained interpretation means that the interpreter follows strict rules to respect the privacy of clients and uses abilities that can facilitate an efficient, effective and clear interpretation. Having local residents trained is definitely a benefit Continued on A23

Well, that was an election worth watching

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

What was it I said last Friday? Another boring, predictable election? Ho-hum? Well, was I wrong or what? Not about the Conservatives. I didn’t indicate it in my column but I was not surprised that the Harper government won the election and even got a majority. The NDP surge, however, was a huge surprise. Although, I have always thought that the NDP was the natural choice for Bloc Quebecois (BQ) voters, should they ever become disillusioned with separatism. I never thought they would actually ever become disillusioned with separatism but I was well aware that the BQ was a socially and politically liberal (small-l) party like the NDP. That meant, ideologically, BQ sup-

porters would be most compatible with the NDP. Especially since the Liberals (big-l) did nothing to appeal to Bloc voters and Harper is universally reviled in La Belle Province. So the NDP was the only choice. Does it mean separatism is dead? I doubt it but it will take years, perhaps decades, to regain the momentum it had when the Bloc had significant influence in the national parliament. The NDP now has to appeal to – some might say appease – the nationalist identity in Quebec. It won’t be easy and a strategy of favouring Quebecois distinctiveness might threaten its appeal in the West, where the NDP has been strong, and in Ontario, another base. Still, these are interesting times for

the little third party that thought it could but never did quite. Now it’s the official opposition which means it gets to ask the first question in Question Period. Whoopee. Actually, the NDP’s position gives it top billing when it comes to criticizing the government but all it can do is carp from the sidelines because of the Tory majority. The NDP actually had more power in a minority government than it does as the official opposition, such is the tyranny of a parliamentary majority. Harper can do whatever he wants. The esteemed Conrad Black actually made an interesting statement to the CBC that said the NDP success and the Liberal and Bloc failure means Canada is becoming a true two-party political system.

I see our national politics mimicking B.C. politics in that the federal scene will now have conservatives and leftists going at it with little middle ground. And we know what a whacky political reputation B.C. has because of its left-right conflict. Interesting times for sure. Meanwhile, good riddance to Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff. He just never could connect with the people in this country. A Liberal intellectual in the tradition of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, Ignatieff just seemed aloof and distant whereas Trudeau at least seemed to revel in the adoration he received from the people. I read one British opinion piece that suggested this election showed Canada was becoming too parochial for Continued on A23

Immigrants: Interpreters available Continued from A22

to both new immigrants and service providers. Executive Director, Rachel Blaney, says, “Interpreters are an important tool to facilitate effective communications. When language is a barrier, interpreters are the tools to break that bar-

rier. There is no need to be frustrated or stop communication. Through the use of interpreters, communication can happen. People feel themselves respected and heard. That’s the way to create a welcoming and inclusive community.“ She continues, “Currently we have over 10 languages available.

We keep on building the list. “Some of them also help us translate our new website, www. welcome2campbellriver.ca, into different languages. They are assets of the community.” Thuy Sin, the settlement manager, says, “The four newly trained interpreters

Taylor: Duncan has his work cut out for him Continued from A22 a modern, prosperous state. Ignatieff ’s return to Canada from decades abroad was used as a weapon against him by the Conservatives and it worked. The resentment against a returning, arrogant intellectual gained some traction with voters and contributed to Ignatieff ’s image. It means that perhaps Canada’s tolerance of internationalism is low and it doesn’t reflect positively upon us as a mature political society. It makes us look like a bunch of backwood hicks “who don’t like no uppity ferners.”

Our economy will benefit from a government that is perceived inter nationally as being stable and prudent fiscal managers. That will attract investors and help to keep the economic recovery going. Locally, we’ve rehired John Duncan and if he continues to hold a cabinet post, we stand to benefit in Vancouver Island North. Given that the Conservatives were afraid they might lose this riding (and it was another close one), they may continue to lavish attention on it to strengthen the party’s hold. We’ll see. Goodness

knows, we could use a little federal help around here after they (and the provincial government) ignored the effect of the forest industry downturn on this riding until it was too late. But it’s going to take a little more than highway improvement projects and lacrosse box contributions to restore the local economy to its former glory. Duncan has his work cut out for him.

About cystic fibrosis and Cystic Fibrosis Canada Cystic fibrosis is a multi-system disease that affects mainly the lungs and the digestive system. In the lungs, where the effects are most devastating, a build-up of thick mucus causes severe respiratory problems. Mucus and protein also build up in the digestive tract making it difficult to digest and absorb nutrients from food. Thick mucus builds up and blocks the ducts of the pancreas, preventing enzymes, which help to digest food, from reaching the intestines. As improved therapies have helped to address the malnutrition issues, virtually all cystic fibrosis deaths are due to lung disease. Cystic Fibrosis Canada is a national health charity committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis, and to helping people and families affected by cystic fibrosis cope with their daily fight.

Gymnast ‘beams’ with silver medal Aimee Clark rebounds after error

Everyone makes mistakes, even judges. That’s what Aimee Clark found out at the Wester n Canadian Gymnastics Championships in Grand Prairie, Alberta. T he member of the Campbell River Gymnastics Association is one of the top gymnasts in B.C., in the Level 5 division, and qualified for the Westerns at a recent meet in Surrey. “This was her first time at a competition this big and she handled the pressure well,” said coach Todd Sader. Clark finished in ninth place despite a judging error which would have given her fifth All-Around. She did make a couple of minor errors, one on the floor and two on the bars which cost her a podium finish. On the bars, she lost a half point on a free hip to handstand that was short and an early release on a shoot up to the high rail which created a muscled swing to handstand cost her another half a point.

Killer Whales take third

Aimee Clark of the Campbell River Gymnastics Club helped Team B.C. win gold at the Western Canadian Championships. She also won a silver medal on the balance beam.

But Clark and her B.C. teammates did come home with the gold medal in the team finals against clubs from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon and the Northwest Territories. T h e i n d iv i d u a l finals were held on the second day of competition where Clark qualified for two events, balance beam and vault. For tunately, the judging error that

On vault, she just squeaked into the finals in eighth place and then moved up three spots to finish fifth overall. This was a great experience for Clark, but she doesn’t have much time to rest as she competes in Delta this weekend.

The Campbell River Killer Whales put in their best performance of the year at the Pacific Coast Wavemaker Invitational in Victoria. The Killer Whales challenged the bigger teams and came home with third overall out of 12 teams. “Our team did exceptional at this swim meet,” said coach Chris Koopmans. “We got contributions from everybody. The two teams ahead of us have over 100 members in their club, so coming in third with just 34 swimmers is excellent.” Conner Skuse, 11, led the team with five gold medals, four silver medals, and set two meet records. James Sidhu, 12, swimming at his first competition, was able to get a silver in the 100 metre breaststroke and three bronze medals. Rylan Valentine,

11, also raced his way to a silver in the 50 metre butterfly. “This was our first long course meet and, for many of our swimmers, their first taste of a 50-metre pool, They certainly rose to the occasion,” said Koopmans. The 10 and over girls really shined at this meet, led by Melayan Beaudin who won three gold and two silver medals. “Melayna really challenged herself in the 100 metre back final,” said coach Dave Healy. Sydney Boyle also showed deter mination in the 100 metre butterfly coming from behind on the last 50 metres to out-touch her opponent. Boyle also received a silver medal in the 400 metre free and a bronze in the 200 IM. Cianna Dunn showed that she has been developing her technique over the past

month as she won the 200 metre breaststroke by quite a wide margin. With every race her confidence grew and she ended the meet with two silver and three bronze medals. “Our club had a couple of break-through races,” noted Koopmans. “Mackenzie Padington came from behind to win the

200 breaststroke and qualified for the Provincial Triple-A meet and Jenna Beaudin executed a perfect race in the 400 IM, knocking off 33 seconds off her best time, to win gold and also qualified for Triple-A’s.” When all was done, the club had amassed 25 gold, 20 silver and 20 bronze medals.

Attract pine siskins with a niger (thistle) feeder, where they may join a flock of their finch cousins, the more colourful goldfinches, house finches or purple finches.

Troublesome landscapes? Try these ideas There are many homeowners who aspire to have an award-winning landscape. The trouble is, not every yard is a perfect canvas for plantings. In most cases, there are one or more spots in a landscape that can prove troublesome and require different strategies. One such strategy is using succulents and rocks to contend with the weak areas of the yard. A rock garden accented with succulent plants can help make the most of dry

patches or areas of steep inclines where planting lawn or other foliage is difficult. Other areas of the yard may be marred by tree roots or sandy soil. Providing remedies for these areas can be as simple as arranging low-maintenance plants and decorative rocks. Succulents are plants that thrive with minimal care and water. They store water in their leaves (cacti are a subset of succulents). Because they are drought-

tolerant, succulents work well in sandy soil or areas that tend to be dry. They also produce shallow roots, which helps them thrive even in poor soil. Many succulents are perennial plants, meaning they will come back year after year. They also work well in containers, which can be moved and rearranged to create different looks all around the yard. To accent succulents in the garden, homeowners can enhance them with rocks and other decorative

items. Rocks will help improve water flow and prevent runoff of soil. O f t e n t i m e s, g a rd e n ers can take a clipping of a succulent plant and replant it somewhere else. This makes succulents an affordable addition to the yard because they can typically spread and prosper easily. Here are some popular succulents that can adapt to many landscapes: ● Hens and chicks: These spreading plants are lowgrowing green leaves that

form rosettes. Each rosette can grow around 5 inches wide. ● Autumn Joy: This succulent emerges in very early spring and develops into a dense, cabbage-shaped plant. Late in summer the succulent will sprout stalks of pink-shaded flowers, which will darken to a russet hue as the autumn approaches. A perennial, this plant requires almost no upkeep. ● Yellow Ice Plant:A lateblooming, flowering succulent that features yellow blooms against dark foli-

age. The foliage turns red in the winter. ● Agave: A large succulent with blade-like foliage. It enjoys full sun but thrives in partial shade as well. ● Jade: The tree-like variety Crassula ovata can grow up to 6 feet tall. It prefers full sun and drying out between watering. ● Aloe: This healing plant is a succulent that can be a welcome addition to the landscape. Troublesome areas in the landscape can be remedied with beautiful, low-maintenance succulent plants.

The Heart of Your Backyard – the wooden deck Building a Deck. Thinking of building a brand new deck? What a great way to enhance your backyard! According to the 2010-2011 Cost vs. Value Report from Remodeling mag azine, homeowners can expect to recoup 72.8 per cent (on average) of the cost of building a wood deck vs. only 66.2 per cent if building with composites. Deck substructures are

built using pressure-treated wood anyway; if it’s strong and durable enough to hold up your deck, it’s strong enough to actually be your decking surface. Pressure-treated wood is a builder favorite and has been the number one decking material for decades. It’s natural, real -- and it looks fantastic. Resurfacing a deck. If you already have a wood deck but it’s more than 20

The deck is the heart of a backyard. It’s where the family gathers for dinner, the perfect spot for grilling, a great place to hang out with friends and the ideal location for relaxing after a long day. Whether you’re thinking of building a new deck or your old one needs resurfacing, be sure and choose the right decking product: choose real wood.

years old, consider a resurfacing project. This is where the decking surface is replaced, while the substructure remains. (It’s always a good idea to have a decking professional check the entire deck for soundness.) Resurfacing is easy, and it’s a great way to refresh your outdoor living areas without blowing your budget. Maintaining a deck. Every building material

designed for outdoor use requires maintenance; luckily, real wood decks are very easy to maintain. Once a year, check your deck to see if it needs cleaning or perhaps another coat of sealant. Perform the cup of water test: if a cup of water poured on the deck boards immediately soaks into the wood, it’s time to apply water repellant. Why choose wood? Your

Home Improvement: Top tips for the best first impression It’s called “curb appeal,” that good impression people get of your home when they pull up in a car, or when walking by. Real estate agents can be as pleased with exterior curb appeal as they are with a well-maintained house on the inside. When it comes to residential property value, this book is indeed judged by its cover. Exterior trouble areas include peeling paint; rotting wood on window frames; buckled roof shingles; overgrown shrubs; ignored lawns; and weeds growing through interlock paths, steps and the driveway. “The lawns and landscaping that frame our home are as important as the quality inside,” says Reinie Drygala, lawncare products manager for Clear Choice, a leading name in innovative garden products. “And the good news is: when it comes to first impressions just a few little tips and tricks can make a big difference quickly. “If you’re frustrated about overgrown weeds, for example, the newest herbicide technology is tackling that,” Drygala continued. “Now there are alternatives to traditional herbicides that effectively kill weeds, but also provide the homeowner with options if they are looking for ways

to have less impact on the environment. The formulation for our Clear Choice selective herbicide, for example, contains up to 85 percent less active ingredients as compared to other products using the same ingredients. “As importantly, microtechnology built into the formulation creates much smaller droplets that more efficiently deliver the herbicide to the plant. Clear Choice is effective on over 60 varieties of broadleaf weeds, killing them quickly while being friendly to your lawn.” In addition to beautifying your lawn, try these quick tricks to give your home instant curb appeal: ● Scrape and spot-paint problem areas. This might be a temporary fix, but even a touch up is better than peeling paint. ● Add colour by planting some annuals in the front yard flowerbeds. ● Replace or paint rusty fixtures like the mailbox, railings, house number, and more. ● Tackle pesky weeds on interlock paths and driveway. Use hand sprays for targeted jobs, or larger jugs for a big surface area. More information at www. todaysclearchoice.com. ● Install lighting along your walkways and steps, or to spotlight the shape and architecture.

Green Technology For Your Home Perhaps no decade has witnessed more rapid technological advancements than the opening decade of the 21st century. At the turn of the century, cellular phones had still yet to catch on universally, and few households had high-definition televisions. Ten years later, cell phones are so prevalent even many school-aged children have them, and rare is the household that has not embraced HDTV. And technology has advanced in other areas as well. Among the more notable advancements is the increase in ecofriendly technologies. Homeowners hoping to make their homes more environmentally friendly have a host of options at

their beck and call that enable them to do just that. No matter which area of the home needs to be addressed, chances are homeowners can find ways to improve their homes in an eco-friendly way. Carpeting Cost-conscious homeowners often love how eco-friendly carpeting options are typically lower in price. Recyclable carpets require few, if any, toxic materials to manufacture. What’s more, homeowners who enjoy changing their home’s decor from time to time will find ecofriendly carpet tiles are easy to install and subsequently replace when the

When building a dream home, homeowners also have a host of green building materials at their disposals. Be it mold-resistant drywall made from recycled paper or eco-friendly siding options, homeowners building their dream home or adding on to an existing home can choose eco-friendly building materials for both the interior and exterior of their homes.

ing. Fortunately, there are several eco-friendly flooring options that use recycled and reliable wood from old buildings. In addition, homeowners can choose eco-friendly options like cork, rubber or even bamboo for their home’s flooring. But eco-friendly flooring is not necessarily limited to wood flooring. Recyclable linoleum flooring is also available, and these new products are typically far less toxic than the linoleum floors of yesteryear.

An increasing percentage of homeowners prefer wood flooring over carpet-

it easier for employees to get their work done without having to head into the office. For homeowners who want to add a home office to their homes, it’s easy to make that home office environmentally friendly. Lighting fixtures are often a primary concern when designing a home office, in which men and women want to mirror the well-lit environment they’re accustomed to at traditional office buildings. To illuminate the room in an effective and ecofriendly way, individuals can install LED lighting fixtures. Such fixtures have a long life expectancy and use far less energy than their

incandescent counterparts. Another way to go green at the home office without spending much money is to make room for some plants in the office. Plants will absorb toxins in the air and also improve the indoor air quality, which many office workers cite as a problem in traditional offices that don’t place too great an emphasis on indoor air quality. When going green, it’s easy to assume technology will be detrimental to the environment. However, advancements in eco-friendly technology have made it easier for homeowners to build their dream homes in ecofriendly ways.

How to Avoid Do-It-Yourself Project Injuries Tough economic times call for even tougher measures – and for many homeowners this means getting hands-on with home improvement projects. Although DIY projects can save money in theory, they also may result in a trip to the hospital if safety precautions aren’t followed. According to recent statistics, 85 per cent of homeowners are tackling projects around the house rather than hiring outside contractors. In this difficult economy, emergency rooms are see-

ing an influx of people coming in with injuries ranging from lacerations to puncture wounds from nail guns. John and Jane Do-ItYourselfer has easy access to home-improvement supplies and tools at the local home center. He or she also may be inspired by any of the myriad shows on television instructing individuals to give renovations a try. However, many homeowners are not schooled in proper safety procedures or do not know how to use tools correctly. This is a

recipe for injury. Common injuries include: ● falls from ladders or scaffolding ● hand and finger injuries -- including amputation -- from power saws and grinder/sanders ● nail gun injuries; since 1991, these injuries have increased by 200 percent ● eye injuries and breathing difficulties Homeowners should con-

sider the risks of improvements before beginning. They should also take precautions to do improvements in the safest manner possible. ● Always read the manufacturers’ safety information and usage guidelines for any tools before the are put to use. ● Turn off electrical current to rooms and outlets prior to doing any electrical repairs. ● Wear proper safety equipment, including gog-

gles, dust masks or respirators, boots, and gloves. ● Store chemicals in a locked cabinet or on a high shelf out of reach of children and pets. ● Be cautious of power cords. Always unplug tools and turn off the switches when the item is not in use. ● Do not climb past the top rung of ladders. Do not use furniture or stacked items as a ladder. ● Jobs such as electrical

work, roof work, gas projects, or major plumbing issues are better left to a skilled contractor. ● Make sure drill bits and saw blades are sharp. Dull tools can result in injuries. ● Keep fire extinguishers and a good first aid kit readily available at all times. There is no cost savings that make risking a disability worth it. If a project is beyond an individual’s scope of ability, hire a professional instead.

Make Entertaining the Focal Point of Kitchen “No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best.” This saying has adorned wall plaques in many people’s kitchens, and for most individuals the sentiment is quite true. The kitchen tends to be the gathering place for the family. When thinking about renovating the kitchen, it pays to have entertaining in mind. It is widely known that improvements to kitchens and bathrooms often reap the greatest return on investment. When making changes to the kitchen, paying attention to the trend of kitchen entertaining can make the room even more valuable – should a homeowner choose to sell at a later

point in time. Gearing renovations around kitchen entertaining also can make the space desireable for current homeowners. Here are some renovation decisions to consider that can make the kitchen an ideal gathering spot for family and friends. ● Space: The best kitchens for entertaining are roomy and feature an open floor plan. For homeowners who have limited space, the first decision may be to expand the kitchen by building an extension on the home or taking down a wall. Many homeowners find that spacious eat-in-kitchens are preferable over a small kitchen and formal dining area. So if a dining

room abuts the kitchen, remove the wall to create a large kitchen space. ● Multiple islands: Instead of one large island, consider two islands. They are less cumbersome, making it easier for guests to easily traverse the kitchen. One island can be set up with a prep sink and wine cooler, while the other can feature a countertop-mounted induction stovetop for convenience and safety. A few tall stools around the back of one island can provide seating while prepping, or for simple conversation. ● Company cleanup: Think about large sinks that can accommodate tall pots and pans, such as a

double-basin apron sink. Drawer-style dishwashers can be installed so that delicate china and glassware can be washed separately from grimy pots. This segregated style means homeowners can save money by washing smaller loads as needed. ● Gathering niche: A butler’s pantry or another alcove equipped with beverage center enables guests to gather in an area away from the main cooking and preparation space. ● Breakfast nook: Cozy banquette seating nestled next to a picture window is a great spot for early-morning coffee or when overnight guests trickle down for a hearty breakfast. Decorative brick or stone

– or even a fireplace next to the nook -- completes the warm and fuzzy feel of the area. ● Large table: Homeowners who do a lot of hosting can benefit from a table that seats many. Purchase a large table or one that can be expanded with a drop-in leaf. ● Hidden appliances: The kitchen should be decorated according to homeowners’ preferences. Key appliances such as dishwashers, refrigerators and even ovens can be masked with cabinet facing, so they blend right into the rest of the cabinetry. A larger refrigerator with features for entertaining, such as room for platters or bakery cakes, is ideal for

the host and hostess. A separate beverage drawer eliminates the need to open the refrigerator repeatedly, plus it’s at a great height for kids looking for juice boxes. ● Lighting: Homeowners should consider many different lighting sources. Pendant lights over islands illuminate these work stations. Recessed lighting under cabinets can brighten countertop areas that tend to be dark. A chandelier or bold fixture over the table shows off the amazing meal. Because the kitchen is such a gathering spot, renovations to this room should reflect how much foot traffic and use the kitchen gets

Mud Glorious Mud tips for your house (NC)—Any parent knows that children come with lots of baggage, literally. Mud rooms in homes often become a dumping ground for coats, boots, knapsacks and sporting equipment as they enter and exit the home on a daily basis. A little organization can go a long way in keeping this space neat and tidy and helping to prevent dirt from being tracked in and out. Here are a few tips to consider when designing an effective mud room: Store It Storage is the most important aspect of any mud room. A custom wall

unit with built in shelves can store shoes and boots and free up floor space for a bench or chair, perfect for donning footwear. Locker–style cabinets for each member of the family can help to keep each individual’s items organized in one spot and provide storage for off–season items that aren’t worn often.

A good first impression can move a buyer to take a closer look.

Landscaping boosts value

(NC)—A well–landscaped yard can provide a lot more than good looks. Landscaping can also increase property value, eoffer home–energy savings dand provide privacy and rhome security. a “We’ve all seen how a good -first impression can move a buyer to take a closer look and be more willing to over-look shortcomings a propyerty may have,” say Carlo Racioppo, broker/owner at sRoyal LePage Realty Plus. -“However, landscaping goes beyond curb appeal rand offers some added ben-efits as well.” e Proper ty value: In dcontrast to many home simprovements, the value of an investment in landscape improvement increases sover time, since the growth -and maturity of trees dand shrubs continues to -enhance aesthetic appeal. n The value of an attrac-

tive landscape to the selling price of a home is often cited at between 10 and 12 per cent. However, a 2009 Virginia State University study concluded that design sophistication was the highest ranked factor to add perceived value of a home, followed by plant size. Thus, securing the services of a landscape design professional could optimize your retur n on investment. Energy savings: Strategic placement of trees around your home can significantly reduce monthly utility bills. Deciduous trees, when placed to shade windows that receive a lot of sunshine, can lower energy bills with a lower draw on air conditioning. Since deciduous trees lose their leaves in winter, the sun can shine in during

the cooler months, serving to warm the house. To save on heating bills in winter, a thick evergreen hedge can block cold winds from robbing a house of heat. Privacy and security: A thorny hedge at key points around a property provides a good deterrent to intruders. Prickly shrubs around windows can also ward off burglars, but be sure to trim back regularly since shrubs that have grown too tall can have the opposite effect. Trees and shrubs also serve to provide privacy in a yard and to block unwanted views outside your property.
