Councillor won’t be ‘pushed around’ on landfill decision PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

In spite of public opposition, city councillors intend to see the completion of a report on the potential of a new landfill and waste-to-energy operation at the former Elk Falls paper mill. “I didn’t say it was going to happen…I want see what’s best for Campbell River,” said Coun. Ziggy Stewart, who was clearly agitated by the opponents. Typically, few people attend the regular meetings of the Solid Waste Management Committee. But last Thursday afternoon at the Maritime Heritage Centre, approximately 70 people came out to oppose Catalyst Paper’s Elk Falls mill as a potential site. “There are streams on the Catalyst land, on the west side of the highway, and this land slopes down to the ocean and this will affect all aquatic life,” said Corrine Matheson, who led the public delegation. “Odour, pollutants, dust, smoke, noise and vibration will be noticed by all nearby residents.” Matheson, along with many of the opponents, lives near the mill’s ash dump which is being evaluated as a potential new regional landfill. The current landfill site on Argonaut Road is nearing capacity and is slated to close next year, along with smaller dump sites in the West Coast communities of Tahsis and Zeballos. That leaves the regional district committee (which encompasses both the Strathcona and Comox regional districts) with little time to evaluate and build an Continued on Page 3

No exceptions to 80-litre garbage can limit, staff recommend KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Hundreds of people called City Hall to complain about new garbage restrictions early this year, a new city report reveals. City staff fielded 208 calls from residents between January and February regarding garbage collection, with the majority of callers complaining that garbage was not picked up. Ninety-eight callers

inquired about garbage that was not collected – mostly when the limit was enforced in January – or had general inquiries about collection services, said Jennifer Peters, the city’s utilities manager and Ron Neufeld, the city’s general manager of operations, in their joint report to city council. The 80-litre, one-can limit came into effect Jan. 1 but the city and its contractor, Emterra, gave residents a two-

week g race period where two cans were collected but the second was pasted with a warning tag to prepare residents for the change. By the third week, the new rules were implemented but many residents were unaware of the volume limit. “There were many calls to the city and the contractor from residents concerned that their garbage had not been collected as it was tagged as being over the

allowable limit,” said Peters in the report. “In assessing the public’s reaction, it was apparent that the new regulations were not fully understood by the

public, and as a result, city staff and Emterra agreed to delay the full implementation of the new limit until April 4.” Currently, one can

with up to 128 litres of garbage is allowed and some people would like to see that stick. According to the report, 22 callers said they would be satisfied if the limit was one 128-litre can while just seven said they were able to manage with the 80-litre limit. Another 21 callers said they would like to see the limit returned to the previous two cans. Of all callers, 44 said they had special cirTELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS

cumstances that would warrant two cans per week under the new regulations. Peters said those who would be considered for a special circumstances pass generally fit into six categories: large family; family with children in diapers; home-based daycare; or home care of elderly; disabled persons, or other medical condition. Peters noted staff did receive calls from residents with large families, home daycares and children in diapers who said they are able to meet the 80-litre limit. Although city council will have the final say, the report recommends the city not give out these special passes as it would mean increased service for some, while paying the exact same amount as those only receiving pick up of up to 80 litres. Staff also believe it would be difficult for households to prove they meet the eligibility requirements for a special pass. “To ensure residents would not abuse a potential special circumstances pass, residents would be required to provide proof that the household fits the defined criteria to qualify for a pass,” said Peters. “A method would need to be developed to allow for an annual review of all pass holders to confirm they still apply for the pass. “It is anticipated that the administration of such a pass would prove to be cumbersome. It is also possible that some residents, especially those with medical conditions, would find the qualification process invasive.” The report also says there is a small number of users who actually fit into the special circumstances category and the existing regulation – that those who need a second can purchase a $2 tag – is more consistent with the user-pay approach applied to the garbage collection service. The report was up for debate at Tuesday’s city council meeting after the Mirror went to press, and councillors will decide whether or not to adopt a special circumstances pass at the meeting.

Landfill: regional district committee weighs options Continued from Page 1

expensive new waste treatment and landfill facility. “There are other options besides Elk Falls,” noted Comox Mayor Paul Ives. Those options include expanding Campbell River’s dump or the Pigeon Lake facility near Cumberland. At this stage, the latter site seems the most practical since the regional district already owns the land and it’s permitted for a landfill. But the problem is, Cumberland doesn’t want it either. “Some of the concerns you’re raising have been raised by residents of Cumberland for years,” director Leslie Baird of Cumberland told the

PAUL RUDAN/THE MIRROR

City councillor Ziggy Stewart tells landfill opponents that he won’t be “pushed around” at last Thursday’s meeting of the regional district’s Solid Waste Management Committee. Elk Falls opponents. debated the practical- to-energy facility. Some The committee also ity of building a waste- directors think it’s

an option, but others believe it’s too expensive and requires far more waste than is generated by both regional districts. Gold River Mayor Craig Anderson pointed out it took more than 10 years to convert his community’s former pulp mill into a waste-to-energy facility. These facilities are expensive to build and Gold River receives barge loads of garbage from Vancouver to fuel the process. As well, the waste-toenergy plant is on the waterfront, approximately 13 kilometres away from the Village of Gold River and any residential neighbourhoods. After hearing the arguments, longtime Area D director Brenda Leigh called for a motion to drop

Elk Falls as a potential site. “I feel I don’t need more information. I know waste-to-energy isn’t viable here. I’ve heard this in several workshops,” she said. But her motion was defeated, led by all of Campbell River’s re presentatives on the board: councillors Stewart, Claire Moglove, Roy Grant and Mayor Charlie Cornfield (Coun. Ryan Mennie had to leave the meeting before the vote). “I can’t support the motion,” said Mayor Cornfield. “We’re doing our due diligence and all we’re doing is asking for information.” Director Noba Anderson of Cortes Island commended the opponents for coming forward and raising con-

cerns. “Frankly, I think you’re ahead of this board,” she said. But Director Stewart didn’t see it that way and criticized some of the questions raised by Matheson. He also stated he doesn’t want to see a traditional landfill at the mill site. “A lot of this stuff isn’t factual,” Stewart said of Matheson’s concerns, as he continued to defend the engineering report which is almost complete and is expected by the end of April. “This is just research. That’s all this is. “I just find it frustrating. I don’t want to make a bad decision for the residents of Campbell River. I don’t want to be pushed around… sorry, I won’t be pushed around.”

Resident raises landfill concerns PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

People who live in the north end of the city, don’t want a new landfill near the former Elk Falls mill, says Gordon Road resident Corinne Matheson. The owner of Mystic Woods Landscape Design led a public delegation of about 70 people who attended last Thursday’s meeting of the regional district’s Solid Waste Management Board. “There is little information available about the potential of pro-

cessing solid waste at the Campbell River mill,” she said, reading from a prepared statement. “As a result, we kindly ask that you provide information to the following questions…” Matheson is hoping the questions are answered in an engineer’s report being prepared for the board on the potential of a new landfill and wasteto-energy site in either Campbell River or the Comox Valley. The report is almost finished and is expected to be deliv-

ered to the board by the end of April. Matheson’s concerns and questions include: ■ Will waste be landfilled or burned? ■ Will there be a waste-to-energy plant? ■ What pollution will result from processing or landfilling waste? ■ What are the potential conflicts with wildlife, particularly the herd of elk which reside near the mill? ■ What are the potential economic impacts to nearby residents if a new landfill is built near the mill?

She’s also concerned with the esthetics of a potential landfill. “The industrial park is an eyesore right on the highway, which has never been screened or landscaped,” she told the board. “Adding a dump facility would add to the already ugly appearance of the north entry way into Campbell River. It would be detrimental to turn a potential tourist and retirement town into the Dump Town. “We see this as a total lack of vision for Campbell River.”

Corinne Matheson (right) questions the board about the suitability of the former Elk Falls mill site as a new landfill and waste-to-energy plant.

Plutonic merges to form green-energy company PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Plutonic Power Corporation is merging with Magma Energy Corp to form a bigger Canadian-based “green energy” company. Monday’s merger will result in a new company, Alterra Power Corp., that will operate two hydro plants and a wind farm in B.C. as well as two geothermal plants in Iceland and one in Nevada. Plutonic operates the run-of-the-river hydroelectric operation in Toba Inlet and has long-range plans for an even larger series of power plants in Bute Inlet. The Toba project began producing electricity for BC Hydro last year, but the $3.5-billion plan to

build more run-of-theriver generating stations in Bute Inlet is on hold. “2010 was a breakout year for Plutonic having completed the transition into an operating company,” said Donald McInnes, Plutonic’s vice-chairman and CEO. “A merger with Magma will provide our shareholders with the best path to further value creation achieved through a larger market size, greater liquidity, better access to capital, and diversity of geography and technology with a healthy development pipeline that provides significant g rowth opportunities.” Under the merger agreement, each Plutonic shareholder will receive 2.38 shares of Magma for each Plu-

tonic share held, and Magma will change its name to Alterra. The merger is expected to be approved by shareholders in April. McInnes has visited Campbell River several times in recent years to promote and defend the run-of-theriver projects. One of the key visits was in February 2009, during a packed and raucous public meeting at the new Quinsam Hall. McInnes will serve as the executive vicechairman for Alterra while Walter Segsworth, Plutonic’s chairman, was named to the new board of directors. Segsworth was also the former head of Westmin Resoucres when it owned the Myra Falls mine located in Strathcona Park.

Hospital taxes rise in anticipation of new facilities Hospital taxes are going up as the regional hospital district tries to minimize the amount it will have to borrow in order to build two new hospitals. The Comox-Strathcona Regional Hospital District (CSRHD) has adopted a budget of $21.4 million for 2011. The budget will see an estimated tax rate of $71.76 per $100,000 of assessed property value, which is an increase of $1.41 per $100,000 from last year. The increase reflects the board’s four-year strategy to gradually increase the tax rate over the short term in order to minimize the debt the regional hospital district will incur from the North Island hospitals project. The regional hospi-

tal district must come up with 40 per cent of the cost to build the two hospitals and will have to borrow funds through the province in order to do that. “The CSRHD’s share of the projected capital cost of two new hospital facilities – based on a cost estimate of $500 to $600 million, is approximately $240 million,” said Mayor Charlie Cornfield and regional hospital district chair. “The gradual tax rate increase from 70 to 84 cents per $1,000 of taxable value from 2010 through 2014 would bring our major capital project reserve balance up to approximately $70 million. This ‘down payment’ would substantially reduce our borrowing requirements and debt

payments.” The Vancouver Island Health Authority is proposing to build a new 90 to 95-bed hospital, on the existing Campbell River hospital site, which could be operating as soon as 2015. In addition to the budget containing $10.5 million toward the new hospitals, the regional hospital district has also allocated $1.6 million for new capital projects in the existing hospitals in the Comox Valley and Campbell River and in the other facilities supported by the regional hospital district. Approximately $3.6 million is being carried forward for previous years’ projects not yet completed, such as the purchase of a multi-pur-

pose fluoroscopy unit for the Campbell River and District General Hospital and a general X-ray machine for St. Joseph’s General Hospital. The Comox-Strathcona Regional Hospital District provides capital funding, cost shared with the provincial government on a 60/40 per cent basis, with the hospital district’s portion being 40 per cent. The facilities that the regional hospital district funds are: Campbell River & District General Hospital, St. Joseph’s Hospital, Cumberland Regional Hospital Laundry Society, Gold River Health Clinic and the health centres on Cortes and in Kyuquot, Tahsis and Zeballos.

Arsonist released after more than a year behind bars PAUL RUDAN

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

After spending more than a year in jail, Trigg Wilson is a free man. The 45-year-old member of the Homalco F i r s t N at i o n w a s released from custody Monday after pleading guilty to arson. In a joint sentencing agreement between the Crown and the defence, Wilson was given credit for serving 13 months and seven days at the Va n c o u ve r I s l a n d Regional Correctional Centre in Victoria. On Jan. 26, 2010, Wilson, a relative and a woman were drinking together at a Bute

Crescent home located on the reserve. Wilson was intoxicated when he became ang ry, apparently because the woman was paying more attention to the other man. He went outside, lit a pack of paper matches and threw them through an open bedroom window. The fire spread to the curtains, but was quickly put out by the occupants who used an extinguisher. At the time, no one knew it was Wilson, but shortly afterwards, he began apologizing for setting the fire. That led to his arrest and his confinement. For several weeks after his arrest, Wilson sat

in jail and did little to help his own cause. Just about weekly, Wilson would appear in court by video and would ask the court for more time. Finally, in March, Judge Brian Saunderson had had enough. “This has gone on for too long,” the judge said. “Most people don’t enjoy staying in jail. You seem to be the exception to the the rule.” That same day, a band social worker, Bonnie Wilson, told the judge that what Wilson did was “totally out of character.” She advised that she was trying to help Wilson find a legal aid lawyer and eventu-

The Community Accord, signed by over 40 community leaders, is testimony to their determined effort to establish a collaborative partnership to support and diversify

workforce development, says Doug Preston, Executive Director, North Island Employment Foundation Society. The goal of this remarkable accomplishment is to assist employers hire the skilled workers they need while supporting the employment, learning and career goals of employees and job seekers.

ally he did obtain legal assistance. After a bail hearing was finally held, Wilson was granted his release provided that someone sign a $3,000 no-cash surety. However, no one ever did sign for his release and Wilson languished in jail. On Monday though, Wilson changed his not guilty plea to guilty and was released from custody.

Tax planning strategies for your retirement life Tax planning is boring and absolutely necessary at any age but especially after you retire. So let’s look at some tax management strategies aimed at maximizing your retirement income.

MANAGING MANAGING YOUR YOUR MONEY MONEY

Split pension income You could reduce your family’s total tax liability by allocating up to 50 per cent of your ‘eligible pension income (which includes monthly pension payments and, where you are at least age 65, RRIF income) to your lower income spouse/partner for taxation purposes. Share CPP/QPP bene¿ts Sharing these with your spouse/partner can save signi¿cantly on taxes.

PUBLIC NOTICE PARCEL TAX ROLL REVIEW PANEL Public Notice is hereby given that the first sitting of the Parcel Tax Roll Review Panel will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, 2011 at the Strathcona Regional District boardroom. At this sitting the Review Panel will consider any complaints filed with respect to the following parcel tax rolls: •

Craig Road Water Service - applicable to part of Electoral Area D (Oyster Bay-Buttle Lake)

Electoral Area J Streetlighting Service - applicable to Quadra Island and the remainder of Electoral Area C (Discovery Islands-Mainland Inlets)

Walter’s Cove Water Supply Service - applicable to part of Electoral Area A (Kyuquot-Nootka/Sayward)

Any person who owns a parcel included on a parcel tax roll listed above may make a written complaint to the Review Panel on the basis that there is an error or omission respecting the inclusion of the parcel, an error or omission respecting the name or address associated with the parcel, or that an exemption has been improperly allowed or disallowed. The deadline for receipt of written complaints by the Regional District is 2:30 p.m. on Monday, March 14, 2011. Further information regarding this matter may be obtained by contacting the office of the Strathcona Regional District.

Use the Rule of 71 Take full advantage of the taxsheltering bene¿ts of your RRSP by making your maximum contribution up to the end of the year you turn 71, at which time you will be required by the government to wrap up your RRSP(s) and convert the proceeds, usually to a RRIF. After age 71, consider putting any extra money into a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) where the funds can continue to grow tax-free and/or contributing to a spousal RRSP until your spouse/ partner turns 71. Consider a guaranteed investment fund This is a ‘segregated fund’ that contains a guaranteed minimum withdrawal bene¿t so you can enjoy the potential investment growth of a mutual fund along with a guaranteed regular income which will not decrease. Consider a Monthly Income Portfolio This mutual fund option is more Àexible and

tax-advantaged than other non-registered options like a Guaranteed Investment Certi¿cate (GIC) which locks in your money while locking it out of potentially higher returns and creating an immediate tax bill on redemption. A Monthly Income Portfolio is designed to provide maximum investment returns along with a monthly income, a part of which is treated as return on capital – a tax-deferral strategy that can increase your after-tax monthly income.

Salmon gala raises $15,000 Pacific Salmon Foundation announces major investment in Oyster River

Caring recognized

Joanne Millar, a Realtor with Royal LePage Advance Realty, Campbell River, received a Realtor Care Award from the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board Feb. 25. The award is based on the premise that Vancouver Island Realtors not only excel as professionals in their careers but they give back to their communities in a variety of ways.

The Pacific Salmon Foundation raised more than $15,000 at the Annual Campbell River Gala Dinner and Auction on Saturday, Feb. 5. Proceeds from the dinner support salmon restoration and regeneration projects in the Campbell River region. The event was held at the Campbell River Marine Heritage Center and sold out. A committee of volunteers organized the event and included: Chair, Larry E. Stefanyk, Don McDermid, Cecil Henley, Brad Root, Jerry Fletcher and Sonora Morin. Major supporters

included: Rachel Blaney, Royal Bank of Canada, Marine Harvest, River Sportsman, Pacific Coastal Airlines, Campbell River Fly Fishers, Hester Creek Family Estate Winery, Ace Line Hauler and Islander Reels. The foundation has long been a partner of the Campbell River salmon community. Since its inception in 1987, the foundation has invested more than $680,000 in the Campbell River region. Thanks to local volunteers and donors these funds were leveraged for a total impact of $5.2 million for salmon. In 2010, more than $54,000 was granted to eight stewardship groups. Dinner chair Larry E. Stefanyk said “streamkeeper groups that provide the in-stream labor are the

Campbellton welcomes

backbone of these successful initiatives.” Committee member Cecil Henley highlighted the Oyster River Enhancement Society at the dinner. Beginning in 1983, the group’s efforts have resulted in near historic returns of salmon to the Oyster River along with healthy numbers of steelhead and cutthroat trout. This February, the Foundation granted $100,000 to Ducks Unlimited for a 161 acre protected wildlife land purchase on the Oyster River called Bear Creek Nature Park. Land title was jointly registered under Ducks Unlimited and the Comox Valley Regional District. The Oyster River Enhancement Society will be working closely with the district to provide recre-

ational and public education opportunities through operation of their volunteer-run hatchery located in the park. The society provides opportunities for involvement through events, volunteerism, sponsorship and educational programs. Campbell River is a quintessential salmon community where salmon have become inherently woven into the economy, environment and culture., said Dr. Brian Riddell, president and CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation. “Support of the Oyster River and the Oyster River Enhancement Society will have a tremendous impact for salmon in the region by protecting valuable habitat and providing long-term preservation through continuing education and awareness.”

In the past three weeks you may have read or heard about a quality assurance review that is underway into diagnostic CT scans at St. Joseph’s General Hospital. The administrative and clinical leadership at St. Joseph’s recognizes that patients who have had CT imaging performed at the hospital may have questions about their CT scan and the review process now underway. We want to assure all patients that we are taking this matter extremely seriously and we are moving as quickly as possible to carry out the review and inform patients who may be affected.

ST. JOSEPH’S HOSPITAL

The Vancouver Island Health Authority is coordinating the review under the direction of Dr. Cochrane who is Patient Safety & Quality Officer for BC. Two weeks ago, experienced Health Authority radiologists began to do second reads of certain specific CT scans that were originally read at St. Joseph’s. In order to make sure these second reads are impartial, the Health Authority radiologists do not have access to the original CT scan report. After the read has been finished, it is bundled with the original (first) CT read and sent to a third Heath Authority radiologist who reviews both reports to determine if there is a difference between the two reports, and what the significance of that difference might be. Depending on the significance and urgency of the findings, patients and patients’ physicians are being contacted by telephone, fax or registered mail. Follow up tests, care or treatment will be arranged as necessary, and will be expedited. All patients whose scans are read a second time will be notified of the outcome. Patients who do not receive a letter or phone call can be reassured they are not affected by this review. At this point, the focus of the review is on CT scans performed between August 1, 2009 and January 11, 2011. Depending on the results of the review, this timeframe may be extended. Some patients have asked about a review of other imaging types such as x-ray, mammography or ultrasound. While there is no indication of a pattern of concern for these types of scans, a quality assurance review will be done to ensure these scans were read correctly. The majority of this will be addressed after the CT scan review is complete, but the Screening Mammography Program of BC (SMPBC) will begin a similar, impartial review of screening mammograms read by the physician noted above, beginning this week. This review is also being coordinated under the direction of Dr. Cochrane. If there is any indication that follow-up care is required, SMPBC will notify patients and their family physicians as soon as possible. Patients with questions or concerns can call St. Joseph’s General Hospital at 1-877-336-1406 or Health Link BC at 81-1. Patients with concerns about their health condition should discuss these with their family doctor or medical specialist. Those with concerns regarding screening mammography done at St. Joseph's General Hospital should contact the Screening Mammography Program of BC at 1-604-877-6200. We recognize this is a stressful and uncertain situation for many patients, and for this we offer our sincere apologies. We are working as quickly as possible to complete the process, while making sure we do a complete and thorough review. Sincerely,

Our View

Walk makes a statement Another year, another successful Walk Away From Racism on Saturday. This annual event serves as a reminder that racism exists and a community must be ever-vigilant We say: Event against it. If the success of the Campbell River Multicultural and serves notice Immigrant Services Association that tolerance is event is any indication, this community is at least talking about important to us the issue. No one is deluded into believing that racism doesn’t exist in Campbell River but if there are people in the community willing to

stand up and say we’re against it, then we’re fast on the way to confronting it. The annual Walk Away From Racism proves that there are many in this community willing to take that stand. They’re saying racism is not acceptable in this community and they’re calling on all who live here to consider what they can do to eliminate racist attitudes. You can think you’re a tolerant community but it only takes one disturbing incident to make you realize that there are some among you who don’t hold the same high values as you do. The Comox Valley learned that in 2009 when a racial

confrontation was filmed and then broadcast far and wide over the Internet. It gave that community a significant black eye. How representative was that situation? Probably not very but, still, the impression it leaves is an ugly one. Those many people in that community who oppose racism are left feeling sick, knowing it doesn’t represent everybody. So, it’s a good thing that Campbell Riverites take the time to make a statement in the annual Walk Away From Racism – the 15th – so that we can say – before an ugly incident happens – that we want this to be a tolerant community.

Good point: Obesity Childhood obesity rates have almost tripled in the last 25 years. To combat that trend and engage Canadians to find a solution, governments across Canada have launched Our Health Our Future, a national dialogue that will make recommendations for action.

Time to enrich the poverty debate in B.C.

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

A couple of readers responded indignantly to this column’s recent reference to the NDP “trumpeting distorted statistics” about child poverty. I was referring to the annual ritual that goes on here at the legislature, where an activist coalition named First Call issues its report that damns B.C. for the worst child poverty in Canada. The NDP pounds away for days, crying “shame” and demanding that the B.C. Liberal government produce a plan to eliminate child poverty, with annual goals. The “distorted statistics” I referred to are in a regular survey by Statistics Canada called the Low Income Cutoff, or LICO. This survey uses

an arbitrary line, currently around $44,000 a year for a family of four, beneath which people are deemed to have “low income.” StatsCan points out in every LICO report that it is a relative measure and not a poverty line, but the activists ignore that. West Vancouver-Capilano B.C. Liberal MLA Ralph Sultan, a former bank economist, has taken this issue on. In November he published a math-heavy discussion paper called Child Poverty in West Vancouver: Fact or Fiction? When I spoke to Sultan last week, he said the weakness of LICO is easy to demonstrate. For one thing, StatsCan uses the same income level across Canada, without regard to the

huge variations in cost of housing or other factors. The LICO ignores provincial services such as dental care for social assistance clients, because it’s not income. Sultan estimates that about 10 per cent of the B.C. budget is now spent on low-income supports, including rent subsidies. Not surprisingly, Sultan found that low income correlates mainly with single mothers, immigrants and aboriginal people on reserves. More surprising is that communities with higher levels of Employment Insurance and welfare recipients are not the communities with the most low-income people. Sultan says this suggests these programs

are effective. Another surprise is that aboriginal people do just as well as other people once they are off reserve, despite the relatively low educational achievement we hear so much about. Sultan, who taught business at Harvard University for nine years, cites a recent book by Harvard historian Niall Ferguson called Civilization: The West and the Rest. Ferguson identifies six ingredients in what he calls “the secret sauce of Western civilization” and its economic success. They are competition, modern science, the rule of law and private property rights, modern medicine, the Continued on A9

British Columbia played a key role in championing and supporting the national declaration. B.C.’s provincial health officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, is the co-lead in developing this strategy, along with his federal Health Canada counterpart, Dr. Paul Gully. Through the framework, ministers responsible for health, as well as their col-

leagues in sport, physical activity and recreation, have agreed to make childhood obesity a collective priority and to champion this issue, to help create the conditions for healthy weights so that children have the healthiest possible start in life. As a result of the website feedback and in-person dialogues, a report and recommendations for action will be put together, to be presented to the meeting of federal, provincial and territorial health ministers in November 2011.

consumer society and the work ethic. Sultan says that list explains the difference between conditions on and off B.C. reserves. Sultan agrees that the political pressure to raise the minimum wage is irreversible. But like most econo-

mists, he says that will reduce the number of low-end jobs. And he is sarcastic about the NDP’s demands for government-imposed solutions: “All we need to do is pass a law and everybody will get richer overnight!” Helping single mothers get back to the workforce is his “per-

sonal cause at the moment,” and he says the new full-day kindergarten is a big step in the right direction. Subsidized daycare is another option B.C. has available. “I know in Quebec they have a very generous scheme, which apparently the rest of Canada pays for,” Sul-

tan said. Readers who demand evidence that disputes the First Call finding might start with Sultan’s discussion paper. It’s posted on his website at www.ralphsultanmla.ca under “special studies.” It ends with a quote from another noted social activist, a fellow

named Jesus Christ: “The poor shall always be with us.” No one has proven him wrong in the past 2,000 years or so. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Author of ‘brave and moving’ book to speak at library Can a committee raise a child or replace a mother’s love? That’s a question posed in Carollyne Haynes’ recent novel Raised by Committee. Set in Devon, England in the 1960’s, “Raised by Committee” tells the story of an abandoned and abused young girl’s journey as she struggles to make sense of her past. At age 12, Gail is made a ‘ward of the courts, as being in need of moral protection.’ She is placed under the care of the ubiquitous Children’s Committee and sent to live in a children’s home. Set against a backdrop of Beatlemania and the sexual revolution, Raised by Committee chronicles Gail’s roller coaster emotional ride as she rails against the restrictions put on her life and struggles to fill the void left by her parents. As much as she resents the interference of the Children’s Committee, deep down she realizes that she

needs their protection - from herself as much as anyone. Gail has a wild streak in her fuelled by hurt and anger, and a searing anguish which threatens to consume her. From runaway, to thief to top student, Gail’s life runs the gamut from despair to hope. Just when she thinks everything is fine, it blows up in her face again and again. As a board member with Nanaimo’s Haven Society, which provides shelter and support for women and children fleeing abuse, Haynes is acutely aware of the challenges facing caregivers. The work

Carollyne tells her story with great honesty, helping us to understand something, at least, of the horror of sexual abuse and abandonment…This book is valuable because it is sure to help others in similar positions to recover from their hurt. Carollyne’s writing is good, with clear narrative and authentic dialogue.” Haynes will present a slide show and talk about her book at the Campbell River Library on Tuesday, March 15 from 2-3 pm.

Dirty Harry stars in new program for BC Sport Fishing Guides Sport fishing guides on the North Island are feeling lucky today now that Harry MacDonald – aka “Dirty Harry” – is around to help them achieve the new provincial Tidal Angling Guide (TAG) Certification. MacDonald, who has seen it all during his more than two decades on the water, was one of the first sport fishing guides in B.C. to receive his professional TAG Certification. He recently completed additional training to become a TAG Assessor, one of 10 in the province qualified to certify others who want to validate their expertise in the sport fishing industry. “I wish TAG had been around 20 years ago when I first started guiding,” said MacDonald, who is the owner/ operator of Mid Island Fishing Charters and the Chair of the Campbell River Guides Association. MacDonald is quick to point out that there are guides working

today who may know how to fish, but aren’t expert at the intricacies of guiding. He has also seen instances in which some employers have allowed guides to operate unsafely. “TAG will hopefully change all that,” he added. The TAG program is unique in North America, said Arlene Keis, CEO of go2, which is responsible for managing certification and assessment for BC’s tourism, hospitality and foodservices industries. “It sets the BC sport fishing industry apart from other destinations and is a major marketing advantage for our guides and fishing lodges,” said Keis. TAG Certification is voluntary and is open to sport fishing guides who have at least 750 hours of guiding experience. Candidates write an exam and undergo a comprehensive interview with the assessor to demonstrate their

More information and details on applying are available at www.sportfishing.bc.ca or www. go2hr.ca. Apart from fostering best standards, there are other reasons why experienced guides should obtain TAG certification, according

to Owen Bird, director of best standards and practices with the Sport Fishing Institute (SFI). “For example, sport fishing businesses with as few as one certified guide will be eligible to receive medical and dental coverage and acquire liability insurance at preferential rates.” Bird adds that one of the biggest benefits for established professionals is that TAG certification provides formal recognition for all their acquired exper-

tise. “It’s a good promotional tool that lends a certain prestige.” TAG Certification is recognized and supported provincially by the Industry Training Authority. The program was developed by the Sport Fishing Institute of BC and go2, working closely with sport fishing industry representatives, federal and provincial agencies, and First Nations. About the Sport Fishing Institute The Sport Fishing Institute of British Columbia (SFI) is a registered, not-for-profit association representing the province’s recreational fishing industry.

Skyline gets into a new line of business A new initiative from the Campbell River and District Association for Community Living (CRDACL) will provide jobs for local adults with developmental disabilities and an important service for the business community. Skyline Productions Confidential Paper Shredding is a brand new venture for the association. Two young men are currently being trained to operate a commercialgrade paper shredder, purchased thanks to a grant from the Vancouver Foundation. CRDACL executive director Greg Hill said all workers in Association programs, including Skyline Productions Confidential Paper Shredding, receive minimum wage, as well as the satisfaction of having a job. Maureen Brinson, supervisor of the Association’s Supported Employment program, said she was inspired by a similar association in Powell River, which operates a successful shredding business. The CRDACL was looking at new ways to create work for adults

with developmental disabilities, when Brinson was alerted to the fact that the Vancouver Foundation had put out a call for proposals. The association applied and was approved for funding to purchase the shredder and get the new business off the ground. “We were looking for ways to create realistic employment, jobs that people with a wide variety of skill levels could do,” Brinson said. She said paper shredding fit the bill. “It’s a job with a definite start and finish and we can define a certain amount of shredding to be done in a four hour shift,” she said. “It’s perfect.” Hill has been with the association for 25 years and during that time, he’s seen the world of work open up for the association’s clients. Today clients work throughout the community in various capacities, making the same wage as anybody else. Hill describes it as “meaningful work for meaningful pay” and said supported employment is a vital component of the Association’s mandate.

The new paper shredder provides business customers with an increased sense of security because the small shred size produced by the Model 16-150 shredder provides complete secure destruction of information. Privacy and confidentiality are key in the paper shredding business, so Skyline Productions Confidential Paper Shredding provides the option of locked storage boxes for customers’ paper. Paper can be picked up on a one-time-only basis, or weekly or monthly pick-up can be arranged. The service is offered to both individuals and businesses. The shredded paper will be recycled. Brinson said paper shredding is a great option for any individual or business needing to free up space and eliminate the chance of identity theft. The service is perfect for any busi-

ness storing personal papers, credit card receipts or other private information. The Association is hoping that as demand for the paper shredding service grows, they will be able to hire more adults with developmental disabilities to operate the paper shredding machine. “If we get the demand, we can employ more people,” Brinson said. She added that it’s exciting to be offering another valuable service to the community. “We’re not looking for a hand-out,” she said. “We’re looking for an opportunity.” Hill and Brinson agree that over the years Campbell River has welcomed the Association’s business initiatives with open arms. “There hasn’t been any idea the Association has taken on that the community hasn’t supported,” Brinson

said. “We are very lucky we live in this community.” To find out more about Skyline Productions Confidential Paper Shredding, call 250-286-3217 or email shredding@cradacl. bc.ca. Skyline Productions Confidential Paper Shredding is a business initiative of the Campbell River and District Association for Community Living with the support of The Vancouver Foundation. The Campbell River and District Association for Community Living is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to advocate for services and/or provide services for people with special needs and their families. The Association’s intent is to enable these people to attain the greatest level of independence they wish and to ensure that their basic human rights are respected.

it be,” the stadium crowd erupted while the nation spoke a unanimous “wow.” We found the poet of our generation. And we weren’t even looking for one. Powerfully engaging and authentic in attitude, his explorations are relevant to our times in the way that Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Downie and Leonard Cohen are to theirs. But unlike the musicians that he’s often compared to, poets rarely infiltrate pop culture. Koyczan emerges in a new wave of 21st century poetry that dares to belong to the people and speak directly to them in their own voice. Folk rock converges with spoken word poetry as worldrenowned poet, Shane Koyczan, takes the Tidemark Stage with his band, The Short Story Long, on Thursday, March 10 at 7:30. This group will take you through a rollercoaster of feelings, bringing you laughter,

tears and perhaps even goose bumps. It will be a show well worth catching. Koyczan is both a writer and spoken word virtuoso. His first published collection, Visiting Hours, was the only work of poetry selected by both the Guardian and the Globe and Mail for their Best Books of the Year lists in 2005. Destined to become a future classic, Visiting Hours is now in its third edition, and includes We Are More, the powerful and moving poem that defines a nation often too humble to define itself, originally commissioned by the Canadian Tourism Commission and performed at the Olympics. Koyczan followed up on the success of Visiting Hours with Stickboy, a novel in verse that chronicles the dark and lonely journey of a bullied child gripped by helpless rage. Koyczan shines a light into the bleak world behind some

of the most incomprehensible acts in our culture, and also shows the healing power of love. Written for anyone who has ever been a child, Stickboy continues to be hailed by teachers, academics, and mental health experts alike for its deft handling of the subject of bullying. Shane also breathes life into the new genre of talk rock with his band the Short Story

Long. A trio whose musical range stretches from folk to funk, from ambient to rock, showcasing all of the beautiful in between, have along with Koyczan created a whole new style of song/ verse.

Storm players honoured after tough season After bowing out of the playoffs two weekends ago, the Campbell River Storm officially closed the book on its season after recognizing the efforts of its players. The Storm handed out its annual player awards recently and Brandon Tidy and Andrew Gaiga were the big winners. Gaiga, who finished the season with 29 points in 43 games and finished 30th in

league scoring, took home the hardware for Highest Scorer and Most Valuable Player. Tidy picked up the Best All Round Player award, Mike Rushton 3 Star Award for accumulating the most points in three-star selections, and the Top Academic Award which he shared with Jesse Spooner. Tidy was also a cowinner of the Toughest Piece of Meat Award, along with

Jordan Eliason, for showing toughness and edge each night. Spooner, a 17-year old Campbell River native, was selected the team’s Rookie of the Year and Dylan Budgell was recognized for his solid play on the blueline with the Best Defenceman award. Defenceman Kiefer Rivington from Pitt Meadows was chosen the team’s Most Improved Player while

Wade Bartlett was selected by the Storm captains as the player

who put forward the greatest effort to promote team concept (Captain’s Award). Other awards went to: Dan Hall (Bob Hendrickson Memorial) for his commitment to community and the game of hockey; Robert Eliason and Corey Maclachlan (Bill Walker Memorial or unsung hero) for their selfless-

ness, determination and grit, and Kieran Anderson (Jason Gow Memorial) was selected as the fan favourite. The Campbell River Storm recently
