With the city’s dump slated to close within two years, some residents fear a new landfill could be located near the closed Elk Falls mill. “Everyone in Campbell River needs to know about this,” says Corinne Matheson. Matheson operates Mystic Woods Landscape Design located at the north end of the city. She and several other Gordon Road residents are trying to put the kibosh on any proposal to turn the former paper mill, and nearby ash dump, into a new municipal landfill site. “Who would want to come here with a major dump on the ocean?” she asks. “The big scary picture is barge loads of Vancouver’s garbage being brought up here.” Matheson, along with several other supporters, plan to voice their opposition at Thursday’s meeting of the regional district’s Solid Waste Management Plan Advisory Committee. The meeting takes place at the Maritime Heritage Centre at 1 p.m. Catalyst Paper permanently

Youth lead the fight against racism Youth are important to the promotion of harmony among different races, as well as to fight against racism in B.C., says the Campbell River Multicultural and Immigrant Services Association. “Last year when I was watching the Olympic Games on TV, I was really impressed by how youth volunteers from different backg rounds could work together so well, so happily. After a year, the government is going to give more funding to youth to help increase inclusion and decrease racism. This action is really encouraging in 2011,” says Vienna Yeung, the project coordina-

tor of Campbell River Multicultural and Immigrant Services Association. Executive director Rachel Blaney says, “I always see youth coming to our organization to provide help. They are creative; they have dreams; they have a kind heart. But the most important thing is, they express themselves directly, they tell the truth. Youth really have the courage to say what they think. Sometimes they have very great ideas and definitely need more support from the community to make their ideas work.” Yeung says, “They are eager to fight against racism and bullying.

One time I saw some of them help the Youth 4 Diversity coordinator, Moss Dance, to prepare materials for the Human Rights Day. They were so energetic and excited to help. And from time to time, some ideas popped up in their mind, they would say it loudly. I remembered I had the same energy like them when I was in high school. But I gradually lost this energy when I did not get the recognition from anyone. The youth give me hope again.” E ve r yo n e k n ow s “Youth are our future p i l l a r s, ” bu t h ow many people can truly understand the deep meaning of this sen-

Landfill: City looks at options Continued from Page 1

closed the Elk Falls mill last July. In April 2010, Campbell River Mayor Charlie Cornfield asked regional district staff to prepare a report on, “the potential of processing solid waste at the Campbell River pulp mill.” The report for the solid waste committee is being prepared by a consultant and is expected to be done in May. During a phone interview on Monday, Cornfield says the committee has to look at all its

options, because time is running out for the city’s landfill. “We haven’t made any decisions, but we have a responsibility to check out all the options,” he says. “We don’t know what’s in Catalyst’s landfill, but we have to do our due diligence…Does it have merit? I don’t know.” The committee is also researching methods of converting garbage into energy. As the mayor puts it, waste needs to be viewed as a resource rather than trash that is simply buried.

“We have to look at it as an opportunity,” he says. On Monday, Catalyst Paper announced it had received $13.3 million in federal funding – through the Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program – to burn wood waste, and convert that energy into electricity, at its mill in Powell River. “…our Powell River mill becomes one of the most logical and low-impact places in Canada to generate green energy from biomass,” Bob Lindstrom, Catalyst’s vice-

president of energy and information technology, says in a news release. According to Lyn Brown, Catalyst’s vicepresident of corporate relations, there’s no such plan in place for the Elk Falls mill, but the company is open to, “alternate industrial applications.” E-mail paulr@campbellrivermirror.com

Thief escapes in cab A jewelry store thief who made his getaway in an awaiting taxi cab was arrested hours later by police. According to RCMP, the suspect entered Thongs Jewelers in the Elm Street Plaza, last Thursday just before 10 a.m. It is believed he stole several necklaces and then fled the store. An employee tried to tackle him, but he still managed to escape and made off in a cab. The culprit jumped out of the cab in Campbellton and fled again, this time on foot. However, around 8 p.m., officers arrested a 31-year-old suspect who

is known to police. The man remains in custody, but has not been formally charged. His name was not released. Meanwhile, on Saturday, around 1:45 p.m., police were called to the downtown Dairy Queen after a female stole gift cards and change from a donation jar. An employee followed her which helped police make a quick arrest. The donation funds were returned to the restaurant. Mounties have also released more information regarding the thief who robbed the Willows Beer and Wine

store on Rockland Road, on the night of Feb. 22. The culprit is described as a Caucasian male in his mid30s. He’s about 5’10” with short brown hair and bushy eyebrows. And on Feb. 21, police received a report of a robbery, which had occurred on Feb. 19. The male victim told police he had left the Riptide Liquor Store a n d w a s k n o cke d unconscious by an u n k n ow n s u s p e c t . He awoke to find his backpack and money missing. This investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP.

Cracked valve sets off sprinklers, fire alarm and forces Wal-Mart evacuation KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

More than 70 WalMart employees and shoppers had to be evacuated from the store Sunday afternoon. After Wal-Mar t’s smoke alarms sounded around 3:24 p.m., everyone inside the building was ushered out to the parking lot, with employees on one side and customers on the other.

Some shoppers took shelter from the rain in their vehicles while others waited just outside the doors. Dean Spry, fire chief, said sprinklers over the garden centre went off which triggered the smoke alarms. “Anytime a building’s sprinkler system is tied into the fire alarms and there is a water flow the alarms will go off because the water indicates that something’s wrong,”

said Spry. Spry figures it was about 20 minutes to half an hour before Wal-Mart staff – and then customers – was allowed back in the building. “Fire fighters had to get the alarm system working again and they had to drain the sprinkler system,” said Spry. The sprinkler system was activated when a valve froze and then cracked, said Spry.

Okay! Everybody back into the pool KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

After months of delays, the pool at Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex opened for business Monday. Swimming lessons, chronic disease management pro g rams and Killer Whales Swim Club practices were all underway two days ago but drop-in swimming had to be cancelled because only one change room was available. “We could only fit so many people because we o n ly h a d o n e change room complete and we made it a family change room,” said Susan Bullock, manager of programs at

Strathcona Gardens. But yesterday the pool opened its doors at 6 a.m. and it was business as usual, with a second change room up and running. Bullock said the family change room, which has been enlarged, will be finished in a couple of weeks. All change rooms now have three private shower stalls and one also houses a toilet to make them more accessible to those with physical disabilities. “Those who are disabled don’t have to use the family change room anymore,” said Bullock who added the change rooms also have lifts to help those in wheelchairs go from their chair to the toi-

let or from an aquatic medical bed back to their wheelchair. There is new tiling on the pool deck and new signage bearing pool rules. The bulk of the work was done underneath the pool, to fix drainage issues. Construction began last summer but unexpected structural issues kept delaying the re-opening of the pool. Originally the pool was slated to be ready to go by the end of December but that was changed to late January and then, finally, late February. A grand opening is scheduled for March 12 with free swimming and use of the weight room.

The Strathcona Gardens Pool was open Monday to its first users in months after long-delayed renovations were completed.

Lengths are open from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. that day and there are two different everyone welcome sessions, from 12:30-4 p.m. and then again from 5-9 p.m. The first session will have games, water balloons and the big inflatable snake will be brought out.

NIC connects local employers with students eager to work North Island Colle ge’s Employment Resource Centre is hosting two career fairs to bring together local employers and NIC students seeking employment. On March 18 in the Comox Valley and March 25 in Campbell River, employers representing local organizations and industries will have the opportunity to meet, mingle and even interview NIC students. Treena Nadon, North Island College’s Employment Service Advisor, explains this event will afford local employers the opportunity to speak with our students first, before they consider other options. “Employers

who attend the Career Fair will have an inside track to our current talent,” states Nadon. “Between the two campuses NIC is home to almost 3,000 students enrolled in credit programs, many of whom are about ready to enter the workforce.” Nadon is anticipating a very good turnout from students and alumni, as students are now turning their attention to their job search and what career opportunities are available to them. Nadon notes, “Most are looking to remain in the area, which is a win-win-win for local employers, our students and our communities in general. Employing these stu-

Our View

Liberals have edge over the NDP With the Liberal leadership race decided and Christy Clark set to take over as B.C.’s next premier, the attention now shifts to the NDP. Or does it? We say: The For the New Democrats, who select their new leader in April, Clark’s win opposition Saturday is likely the worst-case sceeffectively stuck nario. Despite her record during her previous incarnation as a Campbellin neutral era Liberal MLA, much of which she spent as either a senior cabinet minister or deputy premier for some of the government’s most vicious cuts,

Clark was in fact the candidate furthest removed from the current regime. She’s been out of politics since the 2005 election and earned just one current MLA’s support for her successful leadership bid. Clark’s image has softened considerably in her time on the sidelines, while her emphasis on ‘family first’, job creation and tackling poverty also cut deep into typical NDP territory. While Clark gets to work assembling her cabinet team and addressing the issues (and possibly even getting elected), the NDP will be effectively stuck in neutral (just as the Liberal government was in recent months)

as the party’s leadership hopefuls hash out their own positions and attempt to garner both in-party and general populace support. While the New Democrats will undoubtedly use Clark’s earlier political record as fodder for attacks on her leadership, the party is at a distinct disadvantage as a ship being guided by a placeholder captain until a new Opposition leader is chosen in two months. While the NDP will attempt to use those weeks to generate new interest through its leadership contest, it’ll be in tough getting public attention away from an already established new premier. – Black Press

Good point: Hiring The following is in regard to the recent article “Proposed hiring freeze shot down” by Kristen Douglas in the Feb. 25 edition of the Campbell River Mirror. For the record I would like to thank Councillor Ziggy Stewart for bringing forward a motion to implement a hiring freeze at City Hall. He may not have been successful in gaining support for this motion from his fellow Councillors; but, he has been successful in increasing the awareness that a major revenue problem exists in the City’s budget. Hard decisions are going to have to made by council to compensate for $1.4 million of lost tax revenue from Catalyst along with the continued operating cost increases in replacing infrastructure and maintaining existing services. If the city’s administration is unwilling to present budget cost reduction options to council, then council needs to take the bull by the horns and freeze operating cost increases before we really get in trouble. As council is no doubt aware, the majority of the citizens of Campbell River are not in support of further tax increases, especially under the present fragile economic environment. Council simply needs to focus on maintaining existing services/infrastructure as best they can. On a very positive side, I do believe that council is actively searching for alternate revenue sources that may help to decrease some of the city’s cost increases; but, please ….. not another Cruise Ship Terminal. One question I do have for council is: are we actually making any additional money from our runway investment at the airport? At least to offset the capital cost? Jim Forsyth

Somali pirate tales are reminiscent of our own coast

Paul Rudan No, really

I was hardly alone in my thoughts when I read about the four American pleasure boaters killed by pirates off the coast of Somalia last week. “What were they thinking?” I asked myself. The story read like one of Wilbur Smith’s African adventure novel which always seem to end in death and destruction. Mind you, Smith’s stories are set between the 17th and 19th centuries. But here were four knowledgeable Americans, all well-adept at sailing oceans, and yet they chose to ignore every warning and cruised through one of the world’s most dangerous areas. And it cost them their lives. Just days after their demise, seven Danish sailors, including three chil-

dren, were captured by Somali pirates and now we await to hear of their fate. There are apparently as many as 800 people being held hostage by the pirates who demand ransoms ranging upwards from $1 million. Are people that stupid, naive or do they just choose to wear mental blinders? I don’t know and don’t intend to find out by cruising the African coast in a tin boat snapping photos and requesting interviews with the pirate overlords. However, it did get me thinking about our own coast. I’ve been told by many mariners that the local waters surrounding the Discovery Islands and Desolation Sound are among the most beautiful cruising areas anywhere on this

planet. And I would have to agree after going on several boating and kayaking adventures over the years. But what really got me thinking was our own past. Or, more precisely, the past of the aboriginal people who’ve made this coast their home for thousands of years. I once had the pleasure of visiting Village Island, perched at the entrance of Knight Inlet. The First Nations people call it Mamalilaculla. It’s been abandoned for years, but it was once a thriving winter village used by the native people. As the stories go, they were also quite adept at raiding the northern villages near Bella Bella and Bella Coola. Raiding parties from Mamalilaculla would slaughter the warriors

and then bring home slaves to do the heavy labour. These slaves, I was told, had the soles of their feet slashed to prevent them from running away. And, just to be sure, once the wounds mostly healed, they were slashed again to further hobble the escape-minded slave. The Haida warriors were particularly feared and routinely raided villages right down to the Strait of Georgia, as it is now known. As for the people of Mamalilaculla, they too were eventually slaughtered by warriors of the northern villages. The point is, as long as we’ve had boats, we’ve also had pirates or warring tribes. And the message to visiting sailors should always be: Steer clear of the danger.


OPINION

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 2011| CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Minister can’t see that sulfur concentrations in Quinsam Coal’s expansion are higher than present This letter is in response to the article that appeared in your Feb. 23, edition under the headline, Ministry Rejects Arsenic Increase Claim, written by, Kristen Douglas. The article describes a recent letter reportedly sent to our city c o u n c i l by n ew ly appointed Provincial Minister of Environment, Murray Coell. The lead sentence for the article states, “Quinsam Coal mine operations have not increased arsenic levels in nearby Long Lake says the Ministry of Environment.� H oweve r, i n t h e fourth column of the article Douglas quotes Minister Coell as stating, “The ministry acknowledges that data indicate Long Lake sediment arsenic levels have increased from those that existed prior to the mine.� This quote seems very inconsistent with both the article’s headline and the author’s lead sentence. If it is accurate it may represent a positive shift on the part of the provincial government. I have not seen Minister Coell’s letter and so I am somewhat reticent to comment on statements attributed to him. If however, Minister Coell has indicated

that arsenic concentrations in the water of Long Lake comply with B C Guidelines, and there is no obvious problem with fish health, I would say that he is correct on both counts. However, it would be very inappropriate of him to try and reframe the issue as one of present arsenic concentrations in the water or present fish health within the lake. The problem is with the sediment in the bottom of the lake and what it will mean for our river system in the future. Re a d e r s s h o u l d be aware that in an attempt to protect our environment, the B C government has set up contamination guidelines for many specific aspects of it. We have BC Water Guidelines for Fresh Water Aquatic Life, BC Water Guidelines for Drinking Water, BC Sediment Guidelines for Fresh Water Aquatic life, etc. These contamination guidelines have been carefully worked out using the best available research. They all serve an indispensable purpose. It is extremely inappropriate to try and abort these guidelines by playing a game of revolving chairs as some have done in the

past. When there is a problem with toxic substances in the sediment exceeding the B.C. sediment guidelines, change the subject to water quality. When there is a problem with sulphate concentrations exceeding the guidelines for fresh water aquatic life, change the subject to drinking water. The difficulty we are facing is that sediment samples from Long Lake contain arsenic concentrations that exceed the British Columbia Sediment Guidelines for Fresh Water Aquatic Life by as much as 30 times in places close to the mine. Sediment in water bodies is extremely important as it forms the basis for the food web. Some problems first demonstrate themselves in the sediment and then move to the water column. T he Ministry of Environment is aware of these factors. That is why they have established specific guidelines for sediment. The arsenic problem that devastated the drinking water in Bangladesh in the 1990s started in the sediment. That is one of the reasons the three scientists from the Canadian Water Network are involved. Their

expectation is that the arsenic in the sediment of Long Lake will eventually enter the water column as the lake ages. When it does, the effects in Long Lake and all areas downstream will be most unpleasant. The Canadian Water Network scientists haven’t put a time line on this as their investigative efforts are continuing. They have made it very clear to all parties involved that adding to the arsenic deposit is not prudent. They believe that the proposed mine expansion as it stood in April of 2 010, would do exactly that. I am not surprised that the Canadian Water Network scientists are of the opinion that the majority of arsenic in Long Lake sediment is the result of mining operations by Quinsam Coal. If Environment Minister Coell has doubts about this I would refer him to his own ministry’s 2006 document, “An Evaluation of Sediment Quality and Invertebrate Benthic Communities of Long and Middle Quinsam Lakes With Regard to Local Coal Mining Activity,� authored by Dr. Rick Nordin of the University of Victoria, and a 2008 study by Quinsam Coal’s con-

sulting firm Golder Associates titled, “Preliminary Sediment Quality Assessment for Long Lake Quinsam Mine.� While these two earlier documents are not as definitive as the more recent Canadian Water Network reports they both point toward the mine as the source of the contamination. If Mr. Coell cannot see how the sulfur content of the coal in the new seam to be mined with Quinsam Coal’s expansion (7 South #4 coal seam) is higher than that presently being mined ( 5 South) others, including the company, can. I refer him to page one, topic one of the Nov. 4, 2009 Quinsam Coal Environmental Technical Review Committee Public Meeting Minutes where the company described its proposal. The sulfur content of the coal is of environmental concer n because sulphates come from the sulfur in the coal. According to the Canadian Water Network the sulphates are leading to the arsenic concentrations in the sediment of Long Lake. Stanley Goodrich Campbell River

Vancouver Island North NDP select candidate Courtenay city councillor Ronna-Rae Leonard, the newly-nominated NDP candidate for Vancouver Island North, says the HST, pensions for seniors, and protecting the coast from oil spills will be key issues in the next federal election campaign. “By working together we will win this riding back for the New Democrats. People know they can count us to stand up for our communities in Parliament,” Leonard said after winning the NDP nomination on

Sunday. “I will work to make life more affordable for people, generate jobs, and protect the wild salmon that are so much a part of our culture,” she said. “I will work to strengthen public health care by training and hiring more doctors and nurses and investing in home support for our seniors.” “That’s the kind of leadership I am offering to the people of Vancouver Island North, and that’s the kind of leadership Jack Layton is offering

to Canadians across the country.” Leonard said people are disappointed with the Harper Conservatives and are looking to Jack Layton and the New Democrats as a positive alternative. “People here were upset when John Duncan, along with every other Conservative and Liberal MP, voted to impose the HST on British Columbians,” she said. “This is the most blatant example of how the Conservatives have turned their backs on the people of B.C.”

“That’s why I am so proud that every single New Democrat MP stood up and voted against the HST.” Leonard said she is also proud that the New Democrats have lead the way in Parliament on issues like improving pensions, banning oil tankers on the north coast, and fighting climate change. The nomination results were announced at a Sunday meeting at the Native Sons Hall in Courtenay. Most NDP members voted by mail ballot, but many

Ronna-Rae Leonard

others voted in person at the meeting. Leonard won on the first ballot, edging out Port McNeill Town Councillor Shirley Ackland and former Courtenay City Councillor Erik Eriksson.

Guest speaker Peter Julian, MP for Burnaby-New Westminster, said Leonard will join a proud tradition of New Democrat MPs from Vancouver Island North. He paid special tribute to Catherine Bell, who he described as one of the hardestworking MPs in Parliament during her term from 2006 and 2008. “I am very excited about the nomination of Ronna-Rae Leonard, “said Julian. “She will make a great addition to Jack Layton’s team and I look forward to working with her to make a real difference

D i s a p p o i n t e d by council’s decision to shelve an anti-idling policy for one year, the Environmental Advisory Commission is giving it another shot. After a city staff report, outlining an anti-idling implementation strategy, was deferred for a year by councillors at a Feb. 1 council meeting, the commission went to work re-drafting the policy. “We were urged to bring forward a report without a bylaw so we’re bringing it forward again this time with just an anti-idling campaign which we thought would be more palatable to council at this time,” said Peter Woods, chair of the Environmental Advisory Commission. The original packaged created by the commission and brought to council last November, asked council to draft an antiidling bylaw after first running a media campaign to raise awareness. Wo o d s s a i d t h i s time the education campaign (which was before council Tuesday night after the Mirror went to press) would last for an undetermined amount of time and would not lead up to a bylaw. It also gives the city the chance to build on School District 72’s anti-idling initiative which is focusing on implementing an idle-

free zone for all schools through the Hub for A c t i o n o n S ch o o l Transportation Emissions campaign. As part of the education campaign, Woods said air quality in relation to idling could be incorporated into the city’s already existing woodstove exchange program, Earth Week celebrations in April and during Bike to Work Week in May and June including shared messaging for Clean Air Day. Woods said costs associated with an anti-idling education campaign would be minimal. The school district has offered the city a number of free Idle-Free signs for city facility parking lots and limited quantities of Idle-Free decals. Wo o d s s a i d t h e commission was disap p o i n t e d c o u n c i l deferred the anti-idling policy and decided to try again after Mayor Charlie Cornfield and Councillor Roy Grant suggested Woods submit a new report that did not have a bylaw attached. He said the commission came to a consensus last year that an anti-idling policy would be in the best interest of Campbell River residents. Woods noted idling contributes to local pollution and the production of greenhouse gases and research shows localized air pollution negatively impacts the respiratory systems of children and seniors.

City gives plankton Aquaculture awards handed out project $1,000 KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A project aimed at predicting salmon returns received some financial support from council last week. The BC Centre for Aquatic Health Sciences’ Discovery Passage Plankton project is now in its fifth and final year but as a small, not for profit, the organization relies on funding from external sources. T h e c i t y, wh i c h donated $1,000 to the project last year, agreed to match that again for 2011. “We really are a wonderful resource to have, our research facility is working on the health of our community,” said Paula Galloway, marketing and communication manager of the organization. Mayor Charlie Cornfield agreed. “I think the project you’re working on is very significant for the community of Campbell River. I think it could go a long ways into the future in terms of enhancement of our fishery,” said Cornfield. The plankton project looks at what food is available to juvenile coho from late February to late June and

what changes. “Over time hatcheries along the coast saw a huge decrease in coho returns – less than one per cent returns,” said Galloway. “We felt that changing ocean conditions were changing the food available to the fish and so they were not making it once they were out in the open environment.” This year, retur n data will be available for the first time in the project. The data will allow the project’s partners to assess the matching food availability to release times for juvenile coho and whether food availability in the near shore environment can be used as a predictive tool for returns and thereby enhance the ability of government agencies to make decisions that support fish populations. “While the data collected has already been useful to Quinsam Hatchery, trends cannot be fully assessed without the addition of return data in this final study year,” said Elan Downey, research assistant for BC Centre for Aquatic Health Sciences. Galloway adds that the hope is that by fill-

ing in the return data it will allow the organization to use zooplankton monitoring as a tool to predict salmon returns. “The goals for the project are to build open the hypothesis that when more food is available, the fish will eat more and then we will see higher returns,” said Galloway.

The 12th Annual BC Aquaculture Achievement Awards were announced in Campbell River on Saturday. The annual event is hosted by the Positive Aquaculture Awareness (PAA), a grassroots group of industry suppliers and workers with a simple goal – to promote positive awareness of the aquaculture industry. “It was wonderful to attend the sold out event. Congratulations to all of the nominees and award winners for their commitment, efforts and progress in the industry,” said Campbell River Mayor Charlie Cornfield. “It is very refreshing to see the

A yard waste drop-off centre could open as early as this month. Ron Neufeld, the city’s manager of operations, said last week that he suspects the new service could be up and running by the end of March. Neufeld said the city is currently finalizing an access agreement with the Wei Wai Kai First Nation because the centre will be located on their lands, about one kilometre from the Shell gas station. The drop-off centre will be manned and likely open Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., year round and will serve as a transfer station to the Comox processing facility.

Vancouver Island Real Estate Board 60th anniversary leaves a legacy of learning T h e Va n c o u v e r Island Real Estate Board (VIREB) held its 60th Anniversay Celebration and Realtor Awards at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre in Nanaimo on February 24th with presentation of the Realtors Care Awards, Realtor of the Year Award and announcement of a legacy endowment fund to Vancouver Island University (VIU) and North Island Colledge (NIC). The event concluded at the AGM on Feb. 25 with the installation of

its 2011 Board of Directors. Initial communications began with VIU, NIC and the Real Estate Foundation of B.C. (REFBC) each having the key component of a matching fund program. VIU and NIC serve the entire catchment area of VIREB and offer extensive trades training programs, in addition to traditional academic fields of study. The REFBC is a nonprofit organization formed in 1985 and it is dedicated to the

respectful and wise use of land throughout B.C. This organization is also committed to providing education opportunities in the form of grants to students throughout B.C. By providing funding for Island students to study at either VIU or NIC these students could stay connected to their families, friends and communities. The collaboration between VIREB and REFBC established a $60,000 Endowment Fund at both VIU and NIC. Each zone within VIREB has a commit-

ment to assisting high school students seeking post-secondary education. Now with the support of the REFBC and the Foundations of VIU and NIC, VIREB has created a permanent endowment fund that VIREB, members or future alumni may augment and grow. “When we be gan planning for the celebration of VIREB’s 60th anniversary a number of alternatives for a legacy project presented themselves. The challenge for our committee and the directors was to find una-

year bring you all health and happiness. – The Second Chance Recovery House HEROES – The Campbell River Bottle Depot and ReturnIt Center as well as Curt’s Tree Chipping for hosting our tree chipping fundraiser on Jan. 8. Also many thanks to those who delivered their trees to us and their donations. Another year has passed and without the generosity of our volunteers as well as the various businesses in the community we would not be able to carry on providing lunch on Saturday. Our numbers have grown considerably over the past six months and our free clothes closet continues to be a huge success. Be assured that any and all donations are well received by our clients. Thank you again. – United Church Outreach Program, the Saturday Soup Kitchen. HEROES – The month of December brought with it many items donated to the C.R. Seniors’ Centre Society that enhanced the interior of our space. Members would like to let it be known that Jack Revoy is a hero, for his donation of the giant Christmas tree that lit up our Centre - it was an awesome tree! Also, another hero surfaced in the personage of Ken Hall of Catalyst Mill, for the donation of tables and chairs that allowed the Seniors’ Centre to seat everyone attending our Christmas luncheon – it was wonderful to behold! We sincerely thank these communityminded heroes for their consideration of the C.R. Seniors’ Centre Society. Also, our thanks goes to Mr. and Mrs. Stan Proctor for their donation of a beautiful portrait of our Queen Elizabeth II, and to Jack Carr for his donation of a painting of the “Swiftsure” coming round Cape Mudge. More heroes in our midst thank you!’ – CRSCS

HEROES – Keep Your Shirt On business in Campbellton for their generosity and wonderful support in helping to make the Trinity Presbyterian Church Nov. 6 Silent Auction fundraising efforts a resounding success. This was a fun evening of fellowship and outpouring of generosity and a substantial sum of money was raised. Our church will be breaking ground in the Spring to start construction on a major addition. Again, our heartfelt thanks. – From Trinity Presbyterian Church Fundraising Committee. HEROES – On Sunday Jan. 2, our dog went missing in the woods by Robert’s Lake. We managed to get him back on Sunday January 9th after he spent a cold week in the woods. Words cannot adequately express how grateful we are to all the heroes who helped us successfully get Lyle back. We know of some of the heroes who helped us but there are others we may not know who came to help out of the goodness of

their hearts. Thank you to the entire staff of Storey Creek Trading Ltd. for their time and patience, Lorna and Walter from the Robert’s Lake Store, Steve Harding, Chris Francis, Ryan Stanyer, Leslie Kaardal and others from Search and Rescue, Campbell River SPCA, Coastland Vet Hospital, Janice Leach, Pat Brown Clayton, Al Mose and his crew at Robert’s Lake, Kimberly Dorrington (and Yanick) of Seriously Dogs, Karle Granlund, Susan and Richard Michael, Ken and Ruth Mackenzie, Gord Bennett, and Adam Siu whose keen eyesight spotted Lyle. Without the help of all these people plus others who we might not know or didn’t get their names, the story may not have had such a happy ending. One may say that this was a lot of work and effort spent on a dog, and certainly not a perfect dog, but this dog is a member of our family. Thank you again to all these heroes who helped make our family complete again. – The Higgins Family

their products so unwary consumers will pay an inflated price. Recently, my wife went shopping for a TV, I won’t mention the store or the town because it is not just a Campbell River problem, before she went she checked some prices online at the major dealers on the Island, so she had an idea what the price ranges were. When

she saw one she liked it was priced about $200 more than the listed price the same store was showing online. When a clerk was questioned about the discrepancy in pricing he said, “Oh I guess it must be on sale.” I wonder what he would have done if she had just said “I’ll take it.” Get with it merchants.

Young rappers have the power and the cash Two young rappers showed “the power” to win a $2,000 prize from B.C. Hydro. Former Timberline Secondary Students Andrew Baskin and Tanner Waller teamed up to write, perform and video their song “Energy Rap.” They entered it in Hydro’s “Invent the Future” contest, which called for songs, videos and essays on energy conservation, and won the $2,000 prize in the 16- to 19-year-old category. Baskin and Waller submitted the humourous song/video last November. “I plan to raise awareness about the importance of energy conservation with a video that makes people laugh, while giving them a strong clear message about energy,” Baskin wrote in his submission. Judges evaluated submissions on originality, innovation, creativity, scope and potential to change behaviour in B.C. In addition to the prize money, winners get the opportunity to further develop their creative skills by spending a week at the Gulf Islands Film and Television School.

Tenth anniversary year for Jacqueline Chadwick Academy J

acqueline Elizabeth Chadwick, best known for her roles in Britain’s leading soap operas: Linda Bladwin in Coronation Street and Tina Dingle in Emmerdale Farm, is making this a year to remember. “2011 marks the 10-year anniversary of the Jacqueline Chadwick Academy and we want the children of Campbell River and the UK branches to experience the thrill of stage and screen training,” said Chadwick. As a shy child with a lack of confidence Jackie stumbled upon the drama training that would lead to an amazing career as an actress. At the age of 10, Chadwick was chosen to join an elite group made up of a small number of talented youngsters from underprivileged areas of England. Her ensuing eight years of training was intense and opened the doors to fabulous opportunities from working directly with the RSC

The youth of the Chadwick Academy have put on two performances at the Tidemark Theatre since the academy began operations in Campbell River in 2009.

to a New York student exchange program. It was that early training that provided the inspiration for the Jacqueline Chadwick Academy of Performing Arts. By the age of 11, Chadwick was already appearing in a drama series on ITV. Her career then went from

strength to strength with performances in film,stage and the infamous soap operas. In 2001, following the birth of her second child, Chadwick stepped away from her high profile acting career in order to focus on her role as a mother and to give back by teach-

ing full time. Within her first year as the Principle of The Jacqueline Chadwick Academy of Performing Arts, 12 branches were established throughout England and Central Scotland and thousands of children were benefitting from the unique, expert training on

offer. In 2009, Chadwick relocated to Canada with her family and launched her first Canadian branches here in Campbell River. “Over the past two years I have been working with the children of Campbell river and their talent is amazing, we have held two shows at the Tidemark Theatre and are currently working on a television and film production,” she said. “The shows were full and the feedback from parents is quite humbling,” said Chadwick, “seeing the kids on stage and living their dream means the world to me and the comments from parents on how our classes have improved confidence and life skills of hundreds of children makes me so proud. “We have children staring on stage and screen through our casting agency and one of our teachers recently starred in the final of Britain’s got talent. It’s great to see the results of our hard work and dedication are paying off and people are reaching their goals.” Chadwick teaches the Campbell River Academy herself and said she would have it no other way: “Teaching is my passion, I really did not like the fame side of acting, I’m to much of a private person. I teach my classes here in Canada. I miss my children from the UK classes but I speak to the teachers each week and the kids e-mail me all the time.” The academy runs five times a week at several locations in Campbell River, classes run in two age groups – 6-10 and 10-plus. Classes cover everything form confidence building to advanced drama, theatre and television technique.

diversity. Four of our members have developmental disabilities, but our variety moves beyond this aspect to include age, ethnicity, race. “We love to create opportunities for community members of all ages to see, first-

hand, the ability levels and performance competency that can be achieved by anyone with a desire and a goal. We wish to spread the message that while some people achieve goals more easily than others, most worthwhile goals can

be reached with time, effort and perhaps someone who believes in you. Everyone has gifts to contribute.” Inclusion and other local performers will appear Saturday at the Walk Away from Racism at the Community Centre at 10:30 a.m

Grieg Seafood Atom A Tyees played a fantastic exhibition game at home against the higher tiered Comox Valley Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. The Tyees came out strong and Sage Cameron, with a nice pass from affiliate player Hayden Cross, put the team on the scoreboard within one minute of play. The period was played with a lot of fast skating and back-and-forth play between the teams. The Tyees carved out a 3-0 by the end of the first, with affliate player Gordon Ludvigson (Parker), and alternate captain River Fahey (Jacob Hartley) putting the puck in the Chiefs net. Two minutes in to the second period Comox got on the scoreboard. With penalties being served by each team it was five minutes later before Cameron (Ludvigson) buried another puck in the net. The Chiefs answered with a short handed goal less than two minutes later to make the score 4-2. Before the end of the second Seth Parker (Cameron) added to the Tyees points and the Chiefs added two more goals making it a close 5-4 game in favour of Campbell River. In the third, Tyees goaltender Carson Borgfjord kept the team ahead, making numerous saves. The Tyees continued to pass the puck and got it out of their end on the power play to gain a two goal lead when Braydon Kratzmann (Kaden Barnes) scored. That was enough as the Tyees went on to win 6-4. “The boys have learned the value of teamwork, trusting each other, and hard work at practice and it is showing at game time,” commented coach Bill Rennie. The game was very exciting and was played well by all and with excellent goaltending by both Matthew Johnson and Carson Borgfjord.” Dr. Mike Finn came out early Friday mornings to work with both goaltenders. The team will be practicing for the next few weeks to prepare for a tournament in Victoria March 25-27.

Peewees: Playing in shadow of last year Continued from A31

just had to be more aggressive than them. But it was tight. If we didn’t get good goaltending things could have easily gone their way,” said Stapley. It’s been a tumultuous season for the young Tyees, playing in the shadow of last year’s squad that only lost one game all year. They started slowly and were thrashed 8-1 by the Grizzlies in their first meeting back in November. But according to Stapley the players bonded and showed steady improvement as the season went along. “We really came together as a team,” he said. “When one player fell down, a teammate was there to help him up. We’ve had different players pitching in at different times to make things happen and it really worked out well. (Sunday) for example, Nick Ordano had a great game in net, Tyler Dickson scored a fantastic goal and Marcellus Wilson made a key shot block.” According to team m a n a g e r Vi c t o r Coblenz, the coaching staff of Stapley, Vince Devlin, Craig Schelter and Jim Ross also deserves a lot of credit. “This team includes seven first year players, including both goalies, and a couple of others that have never played ‘A’ rep hockey before,” said Coblenz. “The coaches were able to combine them with the experienced second years and mould them together as a team. You can see many of the new kids are playing with a huge amount of confidence now. For Vince (Devlin) and Paul (Stapley), this is two years in a row they have guided teams to Island Championships. It’s really an extraordinary achievement.” The Tyees will now attempt to repeat as BC Champions. They travel to the Lower Mainland next month to represent Vancouver Island at the Tier 2 Provincials, which are set for March 20 to 25 in Aldergrove.

The Grant Family took the Campbell River Mirror to Disneyland. It was the first time for the kids and mom and dad too. Both girls went to the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique and were dressed up as princesses for the day. Jordana is on the left dressed as Snow white and Jada is dressed as Alice in wonderland. They had a hard time getting the little one to smile for the camera as she was so tuckered out.
