Council endorses anti-idling education KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

One month after an anti-idling policy was deferred for a year by city council, councillors decided to endorse an education campaign aimed at discouraging idling. The Environmental Advisory Commission put forward a report to council on Tuesday recommending city staff educate the public with an aim of promoting anti-idling. “I’m impressed by the education component,” said Coun. Ryan Mennie. “I appreciate it coming forward as it is. It’s much more attainable and there’s a low dollar amount attached to it.” When the anti-idling report came to council Feb. 1, it involved Continued on A5

City picks up lacrosse box tab KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city hesitantly agreed to help the Minor Lacrosse Association pay off its lacrosse box construction bill. The association came to city council last week after running out of money to pay off the contractor and was looking for $97,356 from the city. On Tuesday, council agreed to foot the bill but some councillors felt torn in making the decision. “I have to say I struggled with this,” said Coun. Claire Moglove. “I’m going to support this reluctantly and one of the reasons why (I’m supporting it) is because the project went into cost overruns because of the location and that location and design was mandated by the city so the city has to take some responsibility.” During construction, major drainage issues were unearthed. The lacrosse box, which is in Robron Park, is located in an area where water collects because of the way the land is sloped, said Kevin Mills of the Campbell River Minor Lacrosse Association.

Drainage problems, coupled with defective boards and other “extenuating circumstances” resulted in higher than expected costs, said Mills. This is the second time the project has gone over the original budget. In January 2010 the association discovered that the required drainage system would cost an extra $138,000, of which the city provided $40,000. To date, the city has contributed $213,285, the federal government provided $226,254 and the community and Minor Lacrosse Association raised $134,637 towards the project. Coun. Roy Grant said he also struggled with the decision to bail out the association but wants to encourage partnerships with the city. “I think we’re between a rock and a

ment and tremendous sponsorship and we have a first-class facility,” said Adams. “So I think this is an appropriate use of funds.” Mayor Charlie Cornfield agreed and said he is glad to have a lacrosse box back in the community. “It’s a valuable piece of infrastructure, it was worth the leap on this project. It’s built to our standards and I think we have an obligation to cover it.” The new box includes a score board and shot clock and an Internet security system to deter vandals at Robron Park. The facility was built at a cost of $0.46 on the dollar to the city and created over 50 man month’s worth of employment. The lacrosse season gets underway April 1. Mills said registration is up this year, about 20 to 25 per cent, from

hard place with this one,” said Grant. “Our city encouraged the lacrosse association to build this in a partnership with the city. There’s two messages here – the negative message we’re sending is that if an organization gets into trouble it can run to the city for financial help. The good message is it’s promoting sport for Campbell River youth and it encourages enthusiastic volunteer groups to come to the table with projects like this.” Coun. Andy Adams pointed out the association took on costs – related to the drainage system and electrical service – that the city would have had to bear during other phases of the Robron Park project. “At the end of the day there’s tremendous community involve-

City to twin with Chinese community KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Campbell River may soon have a direct link to China which could help attract investment from one of the world’s largest markets. The city has plans to twin with a community in China that has a similar economy and

attributes – preferably a coastal community with a demand for forest products and fish. “The twinned community should have something in common with Campbell River,� said Nigel Ross, chair of the Future of Forestry Task Force which has reviewed the idea of twinning with a

Chinese city. “There needs to be opportunities available for both communities to take advantage of in order for a long-term bilateral relationship to develop and work.� With an increasing demand for B.C. wood products, combined with funding from the province earmarked

for twinning opportunities, the task force feels now is the time to pursue a partnership with China. “Task force members felt that any opportunity to create economic development opportunities with China, for Campbell River, would be positive,� Ross said in the report.

Idling: Council endorses education plan Continued from A1 a comprehensive education campaign and an implementation strategy for an antiidling bylaw. Councillors shot it down last month citing more pressing issues, particularly involving the budget, requiring staff time. It was Coun. Andy Adams who made the motion to put off any discussion surrounding anti-idling and he was not pleased to see the report back on his desk this week. “To say I’m disappointed to see this come back to council is an understatement,� said Adams. “To see this come back in a matter of weeks but in a lesser form – I’m disappointed. While I don’t disagree with the anti-idling initiative I think we have far more important issues to deal with at this time. We have some serious financial issues to deal with. I’m sorry but anti-idling – I don’t want to see this for a year.� Coun. Roy Grant disagreed that the antiidling campaign would take away from upcoming budget deliberations. “I think it’s important and you can’t

relate it to the serious financial issues coming up. It’s simply an issue of awareness,� said Grant, who was glad to see the report come back, with no bylaw attached. “We promote building green, we have an anti-idling policy for city vehicles, we’ve passed air quality bylaws and this is something I’d like to see go ahead. I was a little disappointed we made the decision (in February) so hastily to defer this for a year.� Coun. Claire Moglove, who supported Adams’ motion to defer the February report, was more accepting of the new report because it did not involve a bylaw.

“When it came before council before it was the bylaw I disagreed with because it took up staff resources,� said Moglove. The anti-idling education campaign also comes at minimal cost and mostly involves incorporating information regarding air quality related to idling in already existing programs and events such as the city’s woodstove exchange program, Earth Week celebrations and Bike to Work Week, according to Peter Woods, chair of the Environmental Advisory Commission. Idle-free signs for parking lots can be obtained free of charge from School District 72

which is working on its own idle-free campaign to eliminate idling in school parking lots. But Adams said he was more concerned about the use of staff time than the dollar amount attached to the campaign. “We’re in a very serious fiscal challenge and I’m sorry, even though the dollars are small, if we have staff time to work on this initiative then I think we have our priorities backwards,� said Adams. In the end, the motion to endorse city staff to work on an anti-idling education campaign passed with Adams and Coun. Ziggy Stewart opposed.

Our View

New premier’s challenge The new age of British Columbia politics has arrived. Christy Clark will soon become the province’s new premier … the second woman to rise to the position. Anyone remember Rita Johnston? We say: There In case you don’t, she took over the are parallels with decimated and disgraced Social Credit Party shortly before the former premier voters blasted it into oblivion. Rita Johnson There certainly are some similarities to Clark taking over the Liberal party, whose leader was forced out by public opinion. The Liberals, however, aren’t quite

as decimated as the Bill Vander Zalm Socreds were. The Socreds were rocked by scandal after scandal involving cabinet ministers and then Vander Zalm himself. Other than sweeping the BC Rail sale deal under the carpet, the Liberals aren’t quite at the same level of scandalous behaviour as the old Socreds were. That could be the difference that saves Christy Clark from being a footnote in B.C. politics, like Rita Johnston. But it won’t be easy. By going to a third ballot and with Kevin Falcon securing 48 per cent of the points needed to become leader, it’s clear there was no clear winner Saturday night. Only 37.7 per

cent of Liberals had Clark as their first choice for leader while 28.37 per cent had Kevin Falcon as their first pick. The results show that Liberals were, and are, divided on who the leader should be. There is lots of talk now about keeping the coalition together. It’s the immediate task ahead of Clark. Like the Socreds before them, the Liberals are home to right-of-centre conservatives and to centreright liberals. That’s the coalition W.A.C. Bennett weaved together and it’s the one Gordon Campbell also weaved back together after Vander Zalm destroyed it. It’s not an easy task. – Black Press C

Good point: Hydro For many people the switching on of a light or the television is something that is not even given a second thought. But where that power comes from and how it eventually arrives to your home is no small feat. It certainly becomes evident how important electricity is when power goes out as a result of a wind storm. BC Hydro’s goal is to provide safe, reliable power, with minimal social and environmental impacts, in a way that maintains our low competitive rates. This is a very difficult balance to achieve yet one we are trying to accomplish. BC Hydro would like to provide its customers from the Comox Valley to Campbell River, and the surrounding communities, with what it is doing to keep your lights on. This ranges from power supply, to substations, to power line system improvement projects. All of this prefaced with facilities that were largely built in the 1940’s and 1950’s; it is time for regeneration. The Puntledge River and Campbell River hydroelectric facilities combined can easily generate enough power to supply the immediate region. Surplus power is sent South Island and North Island. For the oldest of these facilities, the 126 MW John Hart Generating Station, built in 1947, its time has come for replacement. For seismic and age concerns, and environmental benefit, BC Hydro is working on the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project that could begin as early as late 2012 and be in-service around Continued on A9

Gaining insight into the mind of an artist

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

I attended the Community Centre’s 10th anniversary celebration last Friday and was treated to one of the most fascinating artist’s talks I’ve ever taken in. I was also treated to a surprisingly tasty horseradish cheese that went stunningly well with jalapeno jelly and a cracker. And I’m not a fan of horseradish. In fact, I think I hate it but the cheese worked for me – with the jalapeno jelly, crucially. It was offered as part of the wine and cheese reception put on to mark the 10th anniversary of the Community Centre. Forgive me for sounding like an oldtimer but I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since the centre replaced the old Community Hall, parts of which were recycled and used around town

in other projects – like the Maritime Heritage Centre. Not that that had anything to do with the artist talk but it may have contributed to my openness to the deep topic Jim Leishman presented as part of the celebration. He was also part of the Rain and Fire Festival held the next day but, as he confessed, he couldn’t promise that the story he would tell on Saturday would be the same as the one I heard Friday. Which is too bad if it wasn’t because Leishman was fascinating to listen to. He was there to tell the story of some huge sculptures he had created and the story was captivating. Not normally a sculptor, Leishman had embarked on a sculpting project to explore the essence of intuition. He

deliberately set out to not intellectualize or plan the project or be deliberately clever in his creativity. It had to be totally intuitive. At one time in the project he tackled a huge driftwood log with a chainsaw because he wanted to hollow it out. After sawing at it for a while, he stopped, shocked by what he had just done to his piece. “What was I thinking,” Leishman said. Then he realized he wasn’t thinking and given his intent to be completely intuitive, “not thinking” was completely compatible with his approach. And so thoughtlessly gutting the piece with a chainsaw was okay, leaving him feeling better about it. It was a delightful moment in the story in which Leishman had taken

us along on his creative journey. His pieces were set up in the darkened Community Centre gym, lit by some strategically-placed spotlights. My favourite piece was a chunk of driftwood out of which Leishman had coaxed a whale, an otter, a dogfish and the front half of a northwest coast canoe. None of it planned, it all came out of the wood as Leishman allowed his intuition to guide his artistic hand. It was very appealing. The large piece, a picture of which I’ve included on page A11, was the one Leishman attacked with a chainsaw. He wanted to be able to get into it, literally, hence the hollowing out. It would take too long to reproduce Leishman’s story here. Hopefully, he’ll be able to tell it again sometime.

Fundamental misunderstanding While the front-page coverage (CR Mirror, 23/02) of the demonstration in front of MP John Duncan’s office in Courtenay by anglers protesting the continuation of the halibut allocation policy was most welcome, the same cannot be said about the column by Paul Rudan on the same issue. Other than our agreement that commercial halibut quota owners should fish it or lose it, the rest of his opinion piece was consistent with the headline – “half baked.” Firstly, the correct facts – the recreational

c) in the absence of any demonstrated greater economic benefit to Canada derived from allocating 88 per cent of the TAC to the commercial sector, why is this policy continued? Do not for a moment believe that “the real power and deep pockets behind the lobby effort are the lodge owners”. Organizations like the BC Wildlife Federation are central to the protest, support for which is fuelled by the deep-seated anger of its membership about this allocation policy that favours a few at the expense of the overwhelming major-

halibut season opens March 1 not March 12 and anglers cannot buy quota, rather they will have to lease it from commercial fishermen. More importantly it is apparent that, like John Duncan, Mr. Rudan fundamentally misunderstands the issue. If a) halibut are a common property fisheries resource, as Minister Shea keeps repeating and b) in the absence of a conservation concern for these prized fish – if there was then there wouldn’t be a 7.65 million pound total allowable catch in 2011 - and

table throughout most of the year has been removed by privatizing 88 per cent of the halibut resource. As well, along with the impact on recreational halibut opportunity of this policy is the precedent setting nature of it. I hope never to read some “half-baked” rationale by Mr. Rudan as to why recreational fishermen can no longer go after chinook salmon or prawns or crabs in the winter when the weather and prudent fisheries management allows.

ity of Canadians. People choose to live in coastal communities for many reasons, not least of which is lifestyle and, for many, the recreational fishing opportunities available to them as a result of proximity to the sea. While it is true that the majority of the recreational halibut catch occurs in the summer months, the ocean is not always rough at other times of the year and the customary recreational halibut season was Feb. 1 to Dec. 31. Now the predictable opportunity to catch a fresh halibut for the dinner

Hydro: Rate increase of 9.73 per cent proposed

Continued from A9 2016/2017. The current scope of the project, estimated at $1.35 billion, is to replace the three 1.8 km pipelines dwith a tunnel and wbuild a replacement tgenerating station beside the existing station. The project will allow continued reliaable power supply to the region, and a 10% increase in power generating capacity using the same amount of water. r Transmission lines

deliver the hydroelectric power supply to substations around the region. BC Hydro is about to construct a n ew s u b s t at i o n south of Courtenay near Buckley Bay. This project will allow BC Hydro to keep up with load growth and provide better power reliability in the area, including Denman and Hornby. Construction will likely begin next year and is targeted for completion by 2014. The project budget is

around $26 million. For the many circuits that come out of our substations to eventually deliver electricity to your home or business, for 2011, BC Hydro is planning on $3 M in power line system improvement projects. This ranges from the $1.5 million improvement project on Denman Island, to a $175,000 improvement project on Quadra Island, to a $500,000 project in Gold River. Additional funds are

Campbell River Living Campbell River stands up against racism on Saturday March 21 is the international day recognizing the events of March 21, 1960, when 69 people were killed in Sharpeville, South Africa for protesting apartheid. The Walk Away from Racism on Saturday is Campbell River’s way of supporting individuals that experience racial discrimination, where hundreds of Campbell Riverites have walked away over the past 14 years – away from racism, toward a more tolerant and inclusive community. The annual walk is a community-building event, held in commemoration of the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Rachel Blaney, Executive Coordinator of the Multicultural and Immigrant Services Association, credits the event’s success to, “the collaboration of our dedicated community partners support from City of Campbell River since the beginning, and the people of Campbell River who are committed to supporting a diverse community.” Blaney believes that “as well as making a statement against

Campbell River’s annual Walk Away from Racism will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m., starting from the Community Centre.

racism, participants also enjoy this free family-focussed, community day, full of multicultural entertainment and diversity activities. Campbell River should be proud that it holds the record for the longest standing and most highly attended event of this nature in B.C.” The event begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Community Centre on 11th Avenue, with a social gathering and live multicultural entertainment as well as,

face painting, children’s activities and crafts in Family Place (until 1 p.m). At 11 a.m., participants head out on the 1 km walk through the downtown core. “The route is wheelchair and stroller accessible,” says Blaney, “so everyone can participate. Please bring the whole family.” For more information contact Multicultural Services Association at 250-830-0171 or info@crmisa.ca.

Dragon boat festival joins Canada Day KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Add dragon boating to the Canada Day weekend’s entertainment list. Campbell River’s two dragon boat teams, the BraveHearts and River Spirit, plan to host their own festival which could attract up to 15 teams from across the Island. The Dragon Boat Society has approval from the Department of Fisheries to use the Campbell River Estuary for the race, which will be a 500 metre sprint. “T his event will market the sport to the community,” said Leslee Samson, society president. “It’s a great opportunity to show

Campbell River what great fun dragon boating is.” With the race having the potential to bring in more than 300 visitors to the community, it’s also an opportunity to showcase the city and its natural water resources, said Samson. The festival is scheduled for July 3, to run in conjunction with other Canada Day festivities. The city has given per mission for the dragon boat teams to use Dick Murphy Park as a gathering area. Samson said all teams will have their own tents set up around the park and there will be a marshalling area, likely near the bird watching platfor m,

across from the playground. Tyee Spit is also intended to be utilized as a viewing area. Campbell River’s two dragon boat teams are open to all ages and require no particular skill development when starting out, said Samson. The teams, which are made up of cancer survivors, promote cancer awareness and actively compete at festivals in the Comox Valley, Port Alberni, Victoria, Nanaimo and Port Hardy, which held its first dragon boat festival last year. Team River Spirit also participates in Relay for Life, Run for the Cure, Cops for Cancer and the Terry Fox Run.

it gets passed by when busy people are shopping and planning the evening meal. It just takes too long to cook‌unless you try my way of producing a succulent steamed beet in 10 minutes. Take a half dozen medium size beets and cut them crosswise in circles about half an inch thick or less. Melt a good knob of butter and mix with olive oil in a thick bottomed frying pan on medium heat. Cover with a lid and and 10 minutes later you’ll be serving shiny red, juicy, mouth watering beets and with no loss of nutrition as they cook in their own juice.

The food bank is in constant need of fresh produce for families in need. We know Campbell River has some of the best gardeners in the country. We ask you to share your expertise and harvest by growing a row of vegetables for the Campbell River Food Bank. Not only will this help a family in need, it also supports the sustainable “100 mile diet.� Recommended vegetables to grow are: Root vegetables however, any produce items that can be easily handled and stored, such as cabbage, carrots, peas, beans, tomatoes, radishes, parsnips, sweet peppers, summer squash, apples, and pears are welcome.

So many readers have exclaimed over the recipe for cooking kale. In fact, you can use the same process on coarse outer leaves left over after preparing beet leaves, broccoli buds and cabbage heads. Here’s another idea for turning the much maligned beet root into a delicious treat. This lonely veg is a powerhouse of nutritional value but

Factoring in Safety Few of us like to live life on the edge. We save money for a rainy day, plan ahead in our lives and expect that everything around us has a built in safety factor. If it turns out that an insufficient safety factor injures us we expect someone to be responsible for it. So, why do we often choose to impose the thinnest of margins when we drive? Look around you the next time that you are driving in a congested area. How many people leave a 4 second buffer in front of their vehicle? When stopped at a traffic light, is there at least a clear vehicle length between everyone that is stopped? Does the accelerator go to the floor the instant the light turns green or does the driver do a 180 degree scan of the intersection before they move? Do people signal their lane change and then occupy a safe space made for them by drivers in the adjacent lanes?

TYEE CHEV CHEV TYEE

These and many other safety factors allow us and those around us to anticipate errors and have the time to adjust for them and avoid collisions. They also permit us to discover unfavorable road conditions and correct for them before they become a problem. Time, or lack of it, is one of our biggest enemies when we drive. Sometimes we must make instantaneous decisions and a built in safety factor can give us an extra second or two to make that decision correctly. That is, if we are factoring in safety whenever we get behind the wheel. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience.

than honey bees. However, in recent years, fully one-quarter of North America’s honey bees have been lost to colony collapse disorder, attributed to pollen mites, long-distance trucking, toxic pesticides and viruses. Consequently, native bees must now assume a larger role in pollination of fruit trees and berry shrubs. Attracting native bees will improve garden yields, and planting early-flowering nectar sources, such as crocus and redflowering currant, will encourage nesting and reproduction. Consider planting members of the aster family, including sunflowers, gaillardia, echinacea and phace-

lia, or aromatic herbs as bee attractants. Local Mason bee aficionado Jim Dubois refers to these superpollinators as “harmless, sweet and cuddly.” He’s even been bitten by the nonaggressive bee after accidentally squeezing one, but the sting, he says, amounted to “little more than a tingle.” Mason bee houses will draw these gentle, beneficial pollinators to backyards. Wait until the weather warms in early March and a source of pollen appears. Then place the bee block in a dry south-east location, under an eave, at a “head-height” of 5-7 feet, and provide a source of mud for best results. Mason bees can only fly a maximum distance of 300 feet from their nests. Mason Bee infosession: Sunday, March 20, Campbell River farmers’ market. Noon – 3 p.m. E-mail Christine: wilderness@shaw.ca

THEY SAID IT: “If a tie is like kissing your sister, losing is like kissing your Grandma.” – George Brett

Wrestlers hit the mats at provincials Ashley Osachuck capped off a great wrestling season by winning a bronze medal at the provincials. The Timberline Secondary student captured gold and silver medals all season long at Island wrestling meets. At the B.C.’s in Abbotsford, she led all Campbell River wrestlers, finishing third in the 60 kilogram (kg) division. And it was good day all-around for local wrestlers from the middle schools and high schools as eight of the 13 competitors finished in the top six of their weight divisions. “We had the best result in years, and feel that many of our athletes turned a corner,” said coach Jason Kerluck. “We are very excited for Nationals in April and for next

season.” Carihi’s Olivia Carter (57 kg) finished the first day of competition in the running for back-side semis which she won on Saturday morning and went on to wrestle her way to a third place finish. Podium finishes, complete with medals, were also awarded to teammates Emily McIsaac (51 kg) who placed 6th and Justice Janveaux (43 kg) who finished fourth. Just missing the podium was was Jose Figueroa (84 kg) who had two wins and two losses. Timberline’s Justin Allard (78 kg) also earned a trip to the podium with a very respectable fifth place finish.
