Record numbers in advance poll KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

People came out in record numbers to vote in this year’s advance polls. Wednesday was the last of two advance voting opportunities for Saturday’s municipal election. Peter Wipper, chief election officer, was impressed with this week’s turnout. “Despite the poor weather, 1,240 voters turned up at yesterday’s advance poll (at the Campbell River Baptist Church),” Wipper said. That number, combined with the 643 people who cast a ballot in last week’s advance poll, Continued on A3

Margaret nears the century mark RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Long-time Campbell Riverite Margaret Carlin will celebrate her hundredth birthday on Monday. Born in a small town in Saskatchewan in 1911, Carlin grew up on a farm. But she knew she didn’t want to be a farmer at a young age, according to her niece Frances Hudock and her nephew Ron Cameron, who told their aunt’s story because she was too tired to talk. “Grandpa gave her a cow every year to raise,” said Hudock. “Each of the kids had these to raise, but she decided she didn’t want to be a farmer, she wanted to be a nurse.” Cameron added that she helped her parents with work on the family farm in trade for the cow each year. “So she saved them up, and when she graduated from high school she sold her cattle to pay for her nursing,” he explained. When she was 18 years old, Carlin came out to B.C. by herself to study, and Hudock said this was certainly not the norm for a young woman in the late 1920’s. “Especially for a woman

to sort of go off on her own and have her own money and do that,” said Hudock. “It shocked her father that she was going to leave home and go to New Westminster to

Royal Columbian and take up nursing.” Carlin graduated from Royal Columbian in 1933. She worked for a couple of years in Powell River and went

back to school in Chicago to upgrade her nursing skills. She then went on to manage a clinic in Prineville, Oregon from about 1937-60, where she met and married her late husband, Henry Carlin, in the early 1940s. The couple moved up to Campbell River around 1960, and she took a break from her nursing career for several years when they bought a store here, then moved to Duncan and ran a store there. By the mid-1960s they moved back to Campbell River and Margaret started nursing again. She worked at the Quinsam clinic for many years, which is where Hudock said many Campbell Riverites would know her from. Besides nursing, Hudock said Margaret’s passions have been knitting, crocheting, sewing and volunteering in the community. She would knit baby outfits “by the hundreds” to fundraise for senior housing, and spent many hours volunteering at local resident care facility, Yucalta Lodge, in her later years. “She would say, ‘I’m going down to help the old people,’ and she was older than them,” explained Hudock with a laugh.

B & E on Montana Drive Campbell river RCMP received a report of a residential break and enter in the 3500 block of Montana Drive at 11 a.m. this past Saturday. The complainant said that in the preceding days unknown suspect(s) had entered the residence, stealing numerous items including a 52 inch television and a 40 inch television. They were seen fleeing in a black 2007 Ford pick-up. Entry was gained through a back bedroom window. The Ford truck was found abandoned on Glacier Crescent later in the day, and investigators discovered that it was stolen. General duty and forensic investigators continue to pursue viable leads for this offenc.

Poll: Surge at the ballot box Continued from A1 brings the total number to 1,883 which Wipper said “is a new record for voting at the city’s advance polls.” After last week’s numbers were tallied, it appeared voter turnout would be low, compared with the past two elections. However, such a large turnout this week caused this year’s figure to more than double the advance poll voter turnout in the 2005 election. To compare, 1,534 total ballots were case at the two advance polls held in 2008 and just 694 were cast at the two advance polls held in 2005. Overall, 9,537 people, or 40 per cent of the population eligible to vote, cast a ballot in the 2008 election, the highest ever turnout, and the city hopes to increase that number this year. Voting takes place this Saturday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. in the gym at Discovery Passage school (2050 Pengelley Rd.), Phoenix school (400-7th Ave.) and Southgate school (740 Holm Rd).

Planning for Life Changes Types of Mortgages

2X14

Mortgages can be a confusing subject. Buying and selling or refinancing a home is an emotional decision and can be very stressful. Understanding the options available is important to help you make a decision on the best possible Mike Parkinson mortgage for your needs.

REYNEN PLANNING FOR FUTURE

In Canada, there are two major categories that mortgages fall into, either closed or open. Most mortgages are closed, meaning that you cannot pay out the mortgage in full without paying a penalty to the lender. You can, however, often make lump sum or extra payments each year. Every lender has different privileges with this, so make sure you are aware of how much you can pre-pay. An open mortgage allows you to pay out the mortgage anytime without penalty. But you typically pay a higher rate when opting for the same version. Open mortgages may also have an administration fee if you do, in fact, decide to fully pay off the mortgage (depends on the lender). Make sure you always find out if this is the case or not before you make your decision. In most cases, it is better to take the closed product if you do not intend to fully pay out the mortgage in a short period of time since the rate is usually lower. Remember that most lenders allow pre-payment privileges each year, which range from 15-25% of the original principal amount, so you can still pay off a closed mortgage fairly quickly if you wish to. Closed fixed-rate mortgages are offered in terms starting at six months and the interest rate does not change during that term. The term should not be confused with amortization. Amortization is the time period it would take to fully pay off the mortgage by making regular payments. Variablerate mortgages, on the other hand, have a rate that floats with the prime rate and are often closed. Getting proper advice and understanding all the mortgage options available will help you choose the best scenario for your specific mortgage needs.

Spree: Police alerted about group Continued from A1 “These folks had set up camp on the beach last week and drew suspicions of the residents,” said Quadra Island RCMP’s Cpl. Shane Worth. “It wasn’t quite adding up for everybody that was living there.” According to a news release from Quadra Island RCMP, police were further alerted to the possibility that members of this group may have broken in to area residences. The investigation determined that three Read Island residences had been broken into with various items stolen, and the campers were arrested on Read Island on Tuesday morning. According to the release, the four campers were held in custody and appeared before a Justice of the Peace. The three

male adult campers have been remanded in custody facing several property related offences. Their first court appearance is scheduled for Monday in Campbell River Provincial Court. The one female young offender was released from custody and charged with two counts of break and enter and is scheduled to appear in Campbell River Provincial Court on Monday, Nov. 28. The four individuals are from Calgary and Regina. Then, on Wednesday, Quadra Island RCMP were busy with a series of thefts and break and enters, followed by a stolen boat chase. According to the release, at about 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Quadra Island RCMP received a report that a Quadra Island resi-

dent’s truck had just been stolen from their driveway. The truck was immediately recovered in the parking lot of the Heriot Bay Inn. However, shor tly after the truck was recovered, a second truck was reported stolen from a residence on Cortes Island. Then the report of the stolen truck on Cortes Island was soon followed by reports of break and enters to the Cortes Market and the Squirrel Cove General Store. According to the release, Cortes Island residents were alerted to the stolen truck and soon located it as it was driven to the Whaletown Gover nment dock. At the dock, the suspects believed to have stolen the Cortes Island truck and who were believed to have

committed the break and enters were seen by witnesses stealing a forty foot ex-fishing vessel from a mooring buoy and fleeing Whaletown Harbour. The stolen vessel was followed by witnesses across Sutil Channel. The stolen vessel was subsequently tracked by police helicopter and the Canadian Coast Guard vessel Cape Palmerston to the Heriot Bay Inn docks where two adult males we re i m m e d i at e ly arrested by police. “It was tracked from the air and the water, and subsequently followed to Heriot Bay where two people were arrested without incident,” said Worth. A significant amount of property believed to have been stolen from the two Cortes Island businesses was recovered from the stolen vessel, according to the release. The two male suspects appeared before a Justice of the Peace, and were remanded to appear in Campbell

River Provincial Court on this coming Monday. The pair, 21- and 2 6 - ye a r s - o l d f r o m Campbell River, are currently charged with theft of vessel, dangerous operation of a vessel, and mischief. This investigation continues, and further charges may be laid, according to the release. “Property offences on Quadra Island are few and far between, being a small island, a safe island where everybody knows everybody, so it’s very rare to have something like that happen over here,” said Worth. “People here are very cognizant of their neighbours and their surroundings and if something doesn’t look right then they’ll phone the police.” Quadra Island RCMP ask anyone who has information on these crimes, or who believes they are a victim of theft or break and enter to call the detachment at (250) 285-3631 or toll free at 1-866-888-0088.

Young local man dead after accident RENÉE ANDOR

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A 24-year-old Campbell River man is dead after he was hit by a van at work Monday evening. According to a news release from Sayward RCMP, the young man was hit by a crew van while it was backing out of a parking area

near the Mount Cain turnoff on Highway 19 at about 5:15 p.m. “He was killed instantly,” said Sayward RCMP Cpl. Rod Pick. “He was either going to close the gate behind the vans that were exiting the parking lot, or he was going to a third van that was parked on the logging road and

Roberts Lake crash A two vehicle collision near Roberts Lake sent two people to hospital over the weekend. Sayward RCMP and North Island Traffic Services responded to a report of a two vehicle collision on the Island Highway near Robert’s Lake at about 11 a.m. on Saturday. According to a news release from Sayward RCMP, both drivers were hospitalized as a result of their injuries. The driver of a Toyota pick up, a 36-year-

old man from Cumberland, was airlifted to a Victoria area hospital with serious injuries. A 29-year-old Victoria man driving the second vehicle, a GMC Sierra pick-up, was transported to Campbell River hospital via ambulance, but was later released. Neither vehicle had passengers. “Fresh snow – slippery conditions definitely contributed to it (the accident),” said North Island Traffic Services’ Sgt. Mark Whitworth.

jumping in that van. There’s two stories there – why he was out of the van and everybody else had jumped into the van.” The driver of the crew van was a 22-yearold Port McNeill man. Several other employees were in the area and witnessed the accident. RCMP victim ser-

vices are offering support to some of the witnesses. “I’ve been in the RCMP for almost 19 years and it was one of the most horrific gruesome scenes I’ve been to,” said Pick. “It was really a harsh one on the guys there.” The victim, driver and witnesses were

travelling from their worksites with Holbrook Dyson at the time of the accident, according to Pick. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the accident, according to Pick. “Investigations by the B.C. Coroner Service, WorkSafe B.C. and the RCMP are ongoing,” said Pick.

(In some cases, Council can also decide to allocate funding from other budget areas if they want to conƟnue with the project.) • With regards to the Robron Park project, Council endorsed a grant applicaƟon at its Nov. 8 meeƟng. No City money has been spent (nor did Council commit to spend the funds now tentaƟvely marked for this project). • Once grant money is awarded, the Robron Park project would return to Council for further debate about project scope and Įnancial commitment.

Cedar school students Lucy Vi, left, and Shelagh Dinney conduct an energy audit by testing the energy usage of items on the teacher’s desk. The energy audit helps the students understand which appliances and electronics suck up the most energy and encourages them to turn off lights, computers and other technology when not in use. The audit is just one of several student-led projects that are helping to reduce the city’s carbon footprint. “I’m really pleased with the work we’ve accomplished as a district,” said Drew Williams, the school district’s environmental co-ordinator. “The recent strategic goal to become more

sustainable has been a priority that students and staff have embraced.” School District 72 has been an important partner to the city in creating the new City Energy and Emissions Plan. The plan encourages energy efficiency in buildings, renewable energy and multi-modal transportation. The school district has been practising several of the initiatives identified in the city’s plan. Custodians have switched to only using “green-friendly” cleaning products and biodegradable garbage bags while at the school board office, only unbleached paper towels are used.

There is a composting program in nearly every school and school district office and a few schools have green teams to spread the message of the benefits of contributing to sustainable living. Carihi student Kyell Erickson said the green team goes to the elementary schools to teach the younger students about energy conservation and encourage them to be environmental stewards. The students also hope to inspire the younger kids to start their own green teams. “We want to promote green, we want everyone to realize it’s healthy to recycle, that it’s healthy to compost,” Erickson

said. The school district is also realizing energy savings in its operations. Lighting upgrades in Discovery Passage Elementary, Ocean Grove Elementary, Pinecrest Elementary and Sayward Elementary are estimated to save 196,500 kilowatt hours per year while an upgrade to lighting in Carihi is estimated to save 127,500 kilowatt hours per year. The district also sold off seven surplus portables which is expected to save roughly $11,000 per year in fossil fuel costs. The school district has plans to do lighting retrofits in four more schools which will be a further savings of 462,000 kilowatt hours and almost $50,000. And the district isn’t done. It’s currently completing a Green Information Technology study to identify further opportunities to reduce energy use and save money.

IVORY 2 ½ YEAR OLD SPAYED FEMALE PITBULL BLUE HEELER MIX

Ivory is a very busy girl with a big personality. She needs a home with a consistent routine, obedience training, and a whole lot of running (with her people of course). She is full of energy and needs to be kept active and stimulated. Ivory does know basic commands, she walks well on a leash and really does love people interaction. A family that enjoys outdoor activities or someone who wants a new jogging partner would be ideal for her. Ivory has a lot of potential. Ivory should not be left alone outside unattended as she has been known to be a bit of an escape artist! Ivory will be a great candidate for training classes, and would be best suited to go to a home with older children that have good doggy etiquette. In the right home Ivory will be a wonderful girl!

Nature lover’s memory lives on KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Avid nature photographer and philanthropist Jim Dubois touched so many lives that people he didn’t even know bought him a bench to commemorate his memory. Dubois’ new, wooden park bench is just one of 100 that will be resurrected around the province in celebration of BC Parks’ 100-year anniversary. The province is selling the limited-edition benches for $1,500 each to improve park facilities across B.C. A group of people from around the world, some who had never met Dubois but simply enjoyed looking at his photos on Flickr, banded together to purchase a bench for their friend. Greg Pond met

JOHN ALEXANDER/SPECIAL TO THE MIRROR

Greg Pond, from left, who met the late Jim Dubois, pictured far right with wife Linda, over the social media site Flickr, collected donations for a special BC Parks Bench in Dubois’ name to be installed in Elk Falls Park. Dubois on Flickr in 2005 after joining the social media site that allows users to network through photos. “Somehow you gravitate towards certain people,” Pond said. “He was very personable, a real character, smart and witty. He would post pictures, mostly nature pictures and

he would often tell an amusing story with the photos. He was really popular on Flickr. Everybody loved him, but it turned out he was sick.” Dubois had chronic obstructive lung disease and routinely travelled to Vancouver for treatment. It was on one such occasion that Pond finally met his Flickr friend after exchanging e-mails. After that, Pond would often meet up with Dubois and his wife Linda when he came to the city for medical treatment. Three years ago, Dubois had a lung transplant and fellow nature lover and friend Christine Scott said he didn’t waste a second of those next three years he would live. “He was an advocate for organ donation and after his transplant he was outdoors all the

time,” Scott said. But in May, Dubois’ disease and pneumonia caught up to him and after his death, Scott – who writes the Island Wild column in the Mirror – suggested everyone on Flickr buy a bench in Dubois’ memory. “There was a large community of people who were grieving Jim’s loss,” Scott said. “I thought the bench would be a fitting tribute and a lasting tribute to the contribution he made to everything wild out there.” Pond said 30 people contributed money and of those 30 people, only about four or five personally knew Dubois. Scott said she was fortunate to know Dubois.She said not only was Dubois a student of the environment, but he was also very generous. Scott said often Dubois would donate his framed photos – to be raffled off – to community non-profit groups to help them with their work. Dubois’ bench has yet to be installed by BC Parks and there is no timeline as to when that will happen. The bench is expected to be installed along the Canyon View Trail near the John Hart Dam, overlooking the Campbell River. Right where Dubois would want it to be.

Here’s your chance to act like a Secret Santa this Christmas First Insurance Agencies , along with sponsors Jet FM and the Campbell River Mirror, are pleased to announce that the annual Secret Santa Program is now underway, and will run right up till Dec. 15. This is the program’s 11th year, and organizers expect it to be bigger than ever. Since its inception in 2001, Secret Santa has provided an increasing number of gifts to families in need. This year it’s expected that through the public’s generosity, over 700 children in Campbell River and the

Comox Valley will be reached. The Secret Santa concept is a simple one: There are a great many families in our communities for whom Christmas is a financial burden that simply cannot be overcome. Rather than leave these children without gifts this holiday season, Secret Santa provides a means for individuals to anonymously purchase a gift from a real child’s wishlist, and have that gift connected with the child in time for Christmas. Children’s names are submitted to a central registry at First Insur-

ance. Those names and wishes are recorded and then given a pseudonym to protect the individual’s privacy. Next, that information is transferred to a gift tag decoration which is placed on a participating Christmas tree at one of several partner locations throughout the participating communities. Anyone who wishes to purchase a gift for one of these special children can pick a tag off any tree, go shopping and then return the unwrapped gift to the same location, or any one of the First Insurance offices. Finally, volunteers

anonymously deliver the gifts to the parents of the registered children, for opening on Christmas day. Pamela Jolin, a longtime staff member with First Insurance, has enjoyed participating as the program has evolved. “Over the years, the Secret Santa program has grown tremendously. It’s so humbling and always reminds us of the true meaning of the season” says Jolin. The stories of people touched by the Secret Santa program have left a permanent impression on those who volunteer their time

“BORN LEADER who knows how to roll up his sleeves and get things done...” Testimonial for Ziggy Stewart

or generously donate gifts and cash to the program. Some of the most heartwarming and memorable Christmas wishes are those that were the most modest: not flashy toys or sophisticated electronics, instead things like warm winter boots or new bedding. This year, trees will be located in the First Insurance office on Cedar Street, Discovery Chiropractic and United Carpet. In the Comox Valley trees are located at the following retail partners: Ascent Physio, Cour tenay Family Chiropractic, Cumberland Dental,

Curves (Courtenay), Dairy Queen, Driftwood Dental, Glacier Greens, Plates, Shoppers Drug Mart, South Country Feed, and Fitness Excellence. To register a child, simply fill out and return one of the registration forms published in the Campbell River Mirror, or pick up a form from any one of the First Insurance offices. The identities of registered families is held in the strictest confidence and great care is taken to ensure that the gifts are delivered discreetly. To purchase a gift for one of these

children (maximum value $50), just pick a tag off any of the Secret Santa trees and go shopping. It is the goal of program organizers that no child in the community is left to greet Christmas mor ning without a gift, so they really need your help. If you are unable to shop, you can also participate by donating to the program, and one of the Secret Santa volunteers will do the shopping for you. For more information, call First Insurance at 250-703-0858 or 1-800-655-5255 or visit any one of the offices.

Dancers kick up their heels Autumn On Nov. 5, a group of dancers from the Campbell River Highland Dance Association made the journey down island to compete in the 17th Annual Duncan Competition. With over 160 dancers competing in all levels, including some Provincial champions and top ranked National competitors, the competition was tough for the local girls. Breagh Kobayashi had a stellar day which included four medal performances, first - Strathspey and Highland Reel, second Seann Truibhas and two third place finishes in the Sword dance and the Highland Fling in the Novice 14 and over category. Kobayashi is striving to reach the Intermediate level and all the hard work is starting to pay off with results like this. Davan McEachren can breath a sigh of relief as a strong performance in the Beginner 9 Years old Strathspey and Highland Reel netted her the Gold Medal and a long

awaited move up to the Novice category. Her practice in the studio has paid off and I’m sure with continued hard work the results in the higher level will continue to roll in. Another dancer enjoying a fine day was Emily Hill, competing in the tough Intermediate 12 & over group, Hill high cutted her way to two third place finishes in the Fling and the Sean Truibhas. She will be soon moving up to the top Premier level and the top finishes should keep on coming with the effort she puts in on a weekly basis with her teacher. The local dancers are all excited about a two week tour of Scotland which is upcoming this summer. They will not only get to travel the old country, but will also compete in three competitions while in the birthplace of Highland dancing. This will be an experience none of them will ever forget.

leaves reading tour The Vancouver Island Regional Library presents award-winning writers Theresa Kishkan and John Pass for readings from their newly released books of memoir and poetry. The Autumn Leaves Reading Tour features Kishkan reading from her imaginative and highly original memoir, Mnemonic: A Book of Trees ($19.95, Goose Lane), and Pass reading from crawlspace ($18.95, Harbour Publishing), his first collection of poetry since he won the Governor General’s Award for Poetry in 2006. They will be appearing at the Coho Books, 1074 Shoppers Row in Campbell River, on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 11 a.m. In Mnemonic: A Book of Trees, novelist and essayist Theresa Kishkan intertwines the mysteries of trees with the defining moments in life. For Kishkan, trees are memory markers of life, and through the pages of she explores the presence of trees in nature, in culture and in her personal history. The poems in John Pass’s crawlspace work within the narrowing passages imposed upon us by the inevitable strictures and limitations of living and experience: aging, love and loss, tightening or unraveling family ties. Close to home as always, in one instance literally under the house he has built, Pass’s work is grounded too in the wider world. This reading is free and open to the public, and is made possible with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts. For more infor mation, please phone Coho Books at (250) 287-2336.

Got a hankerin’ for bluegrass? If it’s bluegrass, country and old time music that you hanker after, then John Reischman and the Jaybirds are the players for you. A top-flight band delivering a truly fresh blend of original songs and instrumentals, old-time heritage, and bluegrass power, these musicians will be on fire for your toasty enjoyment on Sunday, Dec. 4 at the Big Yellow Merville Hall in sunny, downtown Merville. Celebrating the release of Vintage & Unique, their fifth album, they’ll be highlighting songs from the new album where once again they have recorded a collection of songs that showcases what they do best. They go back to the roots of bluegrass and old-time music for their inspiration, and spin these roots into a new sound. On Vintage & Unique, you’ll hear the Jaybirds cover songs and tunes from Bill Monroe, Hobart Smith, and Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard. But the real gems of the album are the band’s originals. While these songs and tunes are clearly informed by the tradition, John Reischman & The Jaybirds have an eclectic creativity that guides their refreshing excursions in acoustic roots

Add to that the fun of watching the Jaybirds skillfully weave around one microphone and the often humorous exchanges as the next song is introduced, and you’ve got a very entertaining experience. Opening for the Jaybirds will be local fiddle whiz, Trent Freeman, a recent graduate of Boston’s Berkley College of Music, who is currently making his own way in the world of music. Freeman has toured with bluegrass bands in the south

eastern and north western United States, and this September did a tour as fiddler with the Wailin’ Jennies. Freeman, presently based in Vancouver, has been busy recording his latest tunes at Dove Creek studios and, in the new year, is planning on making the promotional record tour to Toronto, Montreal and New York. So now is your chance to catch this hot young fiddler, in your own backyard, before he’s‌ out there‌way out there! If you’re a fan of acoustic music, it doesn’t get much better than this.

After you’ve finished voting and the ink on your thumb is dry, dosi-do with your partner down to the Big Yellow Merville Hall on Saturday for the last Contra Dance of the season. Slip on your fancy dancing shoes and join in with the other dancers forming those long contra lines up and down the hardwood floor. The merry Funtime Fiddlers will play medlies of tunes while June Cannon calls the moves. Contra dancing is a style of folk dance in which the dancers form a set of two parallel lines which run the length of the hall. Many of the basic moves in Contra dancing are similar to those in square dancing (swings, promenades, dos-à-dos, allemandes). The difference is that the dancers progress up or down the line

ENTERTAINMENT

Cast your ballot in favour of dancing tomorrow eventually dancing with every other couple in the line. Each dance is taught by the caller before it is danced, with the caller prompting the dancers as needed. Contra dances are very easy to lear n because the pattern of moves of each Contra dance is repeated often. Contra dancers form a community of friendly, active people and they welcome new dancers of all ages. Of course, the fiddlers will have other dance style in between the Contras. It’s an old style Saturday night with a modern twist. There will be a Contra Dance workshop right before the dance. From 6:457:15 p.m., June will introduce the dancers to new moves as well as teach the basic moves. This workshop is free of charge. At 7:30 p.m., the Fun-

Our View

Local elections no less important This Saturday is election day, an important day in the city’s history. And its important that all eligible voters get out and vote. We say: Campbell Traditionally, voter turnout for municipal elections is far lower River is at a in federal and provincial crucial moment in than elections. its history But municipal elections, though lacking the same level of publicity as elections at the federal and provincial level, are just as important, if not more.

Municipal government is the closest level of government to the average citizen and shape the attitude and direction of the city. It also has the greatest impact on our lives. Transportation, sewer, water, policing, fire, and garbage disposal are all under the city’s jurisdiction as is, more obviously, property taxes. It’s important to have your voice heard on Nov. 19 and vote for the candidates you feel will best represent you, and the city as a whole. Campbell River will be facing some challenging times ahead.

The city is still in transition, trying to attract other industry to replace the Catalyst Elk Falls mill and huge tax base it provided for city council. The city needs people who are up to the task of balancing a tight budget while still providing the quality of life we as citizens of Campbell River have come to expect. Last year, a record 40 per cent of eligible voters in Campbell River cast a ballot, or 9,537 people. This year, lets surpass that and set a new record. Remember, voting is a right that others in countries less fortunate would die for.

Good point: Feedback So, how was that for you? The City of Campbell River is interested to know whether its most recent outreach activities have worked for you. “We’ve been trying to reach as many people with as many different perspectives as possible to capture their vision of the future,” says Ross Blackwell, Land Use Manager for the City of Campbell River. “We want to make sure we’re talking to people from all walks of life and interests, to know we’re capturing diverse perspectives and an accurate picture of what’s important to the greater community.” The City of Campbell River’s most recent consultation process has focused on big picture projects such as the Sustainable Official Community Plan, the Agriculture Plan and the Master Transportation Plan. To create an effective two-way exchange of knowledge and understanding, the City has introduced the Sustainable Campbell River website and Facebook page, offered prizes for survey participation and welcomed input at community events (Canada Day, film nights, the Home Show and more). It has also hosted stakeholder meetings, workshops and open houses at various stages in the planning process. Drop by City Hall to share comments with Blackwell in person, call him at 250-286-5748, or send email comments to ross.blackwell@campbellriver.ca. To learn more about City services, events and information, phone 250-286-5700, email info@campbellriver.ca.

Here’s an idea – bring a friend to the polls tomorrow I’ve been racking my brains trying to come up with passionate and powerful reasons to make sure you are compelled to get out and cast your ballot in the municipal elections this Saturday, Nov. 19. But to be honest, I have nothing you probably haven’t heard before. • Voting is critical to the democratic system. A democratic community can only survive if its citizens see participation in the political process as a duty and a responsibility. • People have laid down their lives so you have the right to help choose your leaders.

There is no need to preregister to vote; however, you must have resided in B.C. for at least six months and have owned property or have resided in the City of Campbell River for 30 days. Two pieces of identification are required, which will prove both residency and identity, but picture identification is not necessary. Keep in mind, while you can cast your vote for six council-

lors, you are not obliged to vote for that many. While the electronic voting resembles those “bubble tests” you used to take in high school, the preferred method of voting is not to close your eyes, spin your pencil over the paper and fill in whatever circle your point hits just to make six marks on the paper. If you only feel comfortable voting for three candidates, that is entirely up to you. To reiterate: Vote this Saturday. Bring a friend. Bring ID. Tracy Hughes writes for the Salmon Arm Observer.

School district gets funds for new playgrounds RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Money for school playgrounds will start rolling in soon, and that should include Discovery Passage Elementary. Peter Neale, secretary-treasurer for School District 72 announced at Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting that the school district will soon receive $100,000 to build adventure-style playgrounds at Campbell River’s two middle schools, Phoenix and

Southgate. Neither school currently has a playground, but they’re on the list for a one-time grant of $50,000 each from a capital program announced by the province. The schools, parents and students will soon begin a consultation process regarding the new playgrounds, and Neale said he expects many “wins around the table.” Board trustee Warren Harle then asked about Discovery Passage Elementary. “In this win-win situ-

ation does Discovery Passage still lose-lose,” Harle asked. The school’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC) fundraised for seven years to obtain an addition to the school’s playground, and it was built. However, early this year, the old part of the playground equipment was taken down by the school district due to safety issues, leaving the school with only the new, smaller piece of playground equipment. Neale said he doesn’t believe the

school will be left out by the capital program, and pointed out that it actually has three phases. Phase one grants funds to elementary and middle schools with no playground – like Phoenix and Southgate – but phase two is reimbursement to schools and parent g roups that purchased and installed playgrounds during 2011. While Neale acknowledged that the project at Discovery Passage school

was started in 2010, he expects the PAC will be reimbursed. “The timing of the purchase may have been a little bit off, but because we installed it and we excepted that playg round equipment in the window (of time), we have applied on their behalf to get reimbursement,” explained Neale. He is awaiting a confir mation letter from the province, but expects the $8000 in reimbursement.

As young children scrambled over mats and through tunnels during Family Gym at the Community Centre on Mon. Nov. 7, stakeholders from across the community renewed their commitment to the Success By 6 Early Years Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). And they welcomed Lynell Anderson from the University of British Columbia and the Human Early Learning Partnership, who presented to many business and community leaders. Anderson addressed the decline in the standard of living for the generation raising young children today, and how they are squeezed for time at home, squeezed for income because of the high cost of housing, and squeezed for services like child care that would help them balance earning a living with raising a family. She said the business community pays a price when employees with young children bring their time and service squeeze to their jobs.

The Success By 6 Early Years Memorandum of Understanding was signed community representatives on Mon. Nov. 7.

School board candidate can’t make full commitment School trustee candidate Murray Grant is not stepping down but would take a “less active role” if elected. “Regrettably, due to circumstances which have changed since

my nomination, if elected, I would necessarily have to take a less active role on the board of trustees than I would desire, and indeed take a less active role than I feel to

be optimal for the students, parents, teachers and communities of Campbell River,” wrote Grant in a letter. However, Grant is continuing to run for a trustee position.

“I am not stepping down from my nomination,” said Grant. “I wo u l d ve r y m u ch enjoy being a trustee but in the interests of transparency, full disclosure, and respect to

the fellow nominees, the electorate, the position, and the democratic process, I needed to state clearly what I can and can not bring to the position.” “ G ive n t h a t , i f

elected, I still would contribute to the best of my ability,” said Grant. He took all his elementary and secondary schooling in Campbell River, and TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS

has worked in schools, colleges and technological institutes for the past twenty years as a teacher and administrator. “Particularly important pedagogical issues to me are, how technology integrates with student centred lear ning, and how traditional cultures transmit learning and experiences in this technological age,” said Grant. “If we do not seriously address such issues and develop local policy and local programs for such modern realities, challenges and opportunities, we chance our students’ success, our teachers’ and parents’ satisfaction, and much of our various communities cultural heritage; in fact we would risk becoming passive acceptors of policy and programs scripted outside Campbell River.” Grant said he lived and worked in cultures that have less respect for human rights or the tenets of collective bargaining in particular. He said advocation is important. “I am a full believer in, and advocate for all reasonable persons, groups and communities who have the courage to stand up and insist upon both their rights and the rights of those who have no voice,” explained Grant. While Grant is still officially running, he said he wants to let voters know that he can commit less time to trustee duties so that they can make the most educated decision possible when voting. “Civic elections are so important that I wish everyone to cast an informed and reasoned ballot for the nominees of their choice and know that they have contributed to making Campbell River the best city it can be,” said Grant.

Knight Inlet Lodge bullish on the bear market RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

B

lack Creek resident Dean Wyatt saw a potential market years ago, and it’s turned out to be a cash… bear. Wyatt bought a fishing lodge, called Knight Inlet Lodge, in 1996, which is located in Glendale Cove in Knight Inlet, about 80 kilometres north of Campbell River. But within two years, he changed the entire business plan of the floating lodge, and rather than selling fishing, Wyatt decided to sell bears. “We have an incredible product,” said Wyatt. “I saw the bears and I thought ‘oh no the market’s

not the fishing,’ ‘cause the fishing was on decline, ‘the market’s the bears.’” The lodge offers grizzly bear viewing tours from the end of June to mid-October. The lodge is already about 45 per cent booked for next year’s season, and Wyatt expects that it will be fully booked by the end of March. Knight Inlet Lodge has garnered high ratings from many travel agencies over the years, and in early summer, the lodge was rated fifth on Tripadvisor’s list of the top 10 all inclusive resorts in the world – the only resort in Canada to even make the list. The lodge did not apply for the top 10 award, it’s solely

the people... come because they’re bear nuts.” – Dean Wyatt, lodge owner

based on ratings and comments from guests. Wyatt said the high rating of customer satisfaction feels great. “It’s pretty cool for a place out here in the middle of nowhere that nobody really knows about, that our clients are going away so jazzed that they write into these guys saying this place is an absolute – saying it’s unbelievable,” said Wyatt. Guests fly out of Campbell River via float plane, and within 25 minutes, are essentially in the middle of nowhere on a floating lodge surrounded by steep walls draped in trees that seem to drop straight into the water. Within another half hour they are out looking for grizzly bears and Wyatt said the appeal to “bear nuts” is huge. “Most of the people who come, come because they’re bear nuts,” said Wyatt. “We had a lady last week tell us that she loves coming because Continued on B2

Lodge: Salmon enhancement a priority Continued from B1 she’s an arctophile,” he added, then explained he had to look the word up in a dictionary. An arctophile is, “a Teddy bear lover. She has this thing about Teddy bears so she had to come and see bears in the wild.” However, the people who come to the lodge are not local. In fact, Wyatt said he’s never had someone from Campbell River come as a paying guest. Instead the resort’s success is international. According to Wyatt, about 30 per cent of guests are from Australia, and 40 per cent are from the United Kingdom, with the rest mostly from

Europe. The lodge has an eco-friendly focus, and educates its guests while letting them experience nature at the same time. “We’re an educational experiential holiday,” said Wyatt. “We really get people engaged in the education side of it, but the experience side of it – to walk on that trail that you know there was a bear there last night rubbing on that trail (because of video cameras the resort has set up to monitor the bears), and then you come to the tree and there’s all the hair on the back of the tree and people are picking the hair off – and that’s what really gets the people going.”

Among activities like kayaking tours, whale watching tours, and nature walks, guests can also release coho fry from the business’ fish hatchery into a river that grizzlies frequently feed from. “It’s an educational tool for our clients, but it’s a chance to enhance the stock,” said Wyatt. “Our clients are actually really into this, because we take 15 fry at a time… and we go to the river and the clients put the fish back in.” The lodge has been catching native stock and releasing fish each year for six years. It released 2,000 fish in 2010 and this year Wyatt hopes to

release 3,000. However, he said it can be hard to catch the fish in the first place. “It’s very difficult,” Wyatt said. “One year we caught three fish and we were so excited then we found out they were all males, that was really a bummer.” He said it’s a learning experience and resort staff are getting better at the hatching process now. The resort also works closely with the Department of Fisheries on juvenile salmon out migration studies, escapement monitoring and wild Coho enumeration. It’s involved in grizzly bear studies, and donates money to conservation groups

RENÉE ANDOR/THE MIRROR

Knight Inlet Lodge uses this weir to count the numbers of salmon coming through the waterway. Unsurprisingly, it’s also a hot spot for grizzly bear viewing in salmon spawning season.

in Canada and the United States. And to top it off, Knight Inlet Lodge is a founding member of the Commercial Bear Viewing Association of British Columbia. Wyatt said in the late 1990’s he fought hard through this organization to ensure strict guidelines around grizzly bear viewing were enforced by government. The company can do four viewings a day, for

two hours each, with a limit 12 people on a tour at a time. According to Wyatt, these restrictions mean that the resort can’t expand even though business is going so well. It has 15 rooms, with a total maximum of 40 guests in the high viewing season. A company fighting to be regulated more closely by government may not be the norm, but Wyatt said he felt

it important. “It sounds backwards, but in fact I think our view has always been progressive, because it’s not about me it’s about the bears,” explained Wyatt. “If the bears leave, we have nothing, so the reality of it is that we have to leave the smallest footprint that we can so that we have the least impact upon the way that they live their lives.”

Drive Smart BC Yielding to an Emergency Vehicle 2X14 “Well, I thought that you were trying to catch that car aheadTYEE of me.” CHEV This is a common reply when drivers are stopped to explain why they didn’t pull over for the police vehicle trying to catch an obvious violator. The vehicle ahead of these drivers might be the object of the pursuit, but how is that driver to know? The driver doesn’t need to know. On the approach or an emergency vehicle, police, fire or ambulance, that is sounding a siren and showing a flashing red light a driver must yield the right of way and IMMEDIATELY drive to a position parallel to and as close as possible to the nearest edge of the roadway clear of an intersection, STOP, and REMAIN STOPPED until the emergency vehicle has passed. A driver doesn’t have to consider who is being pulled over because EVERYONE must pull over and stop. This includes drivers on BOTH SIDES OF THE ROADWAY regardless how many lanes wide it might be. What if you don’t hear a siren? This doesn’t mean that one is not being used as emergency vehicles approaching from the rear are seldom heard before they are seen if the driver is paying attention. Pull over and stop even if you don’t hear a siren as this will avoid possible charges if you are in error. Consider for a moment that when you require one of the emergency services it is very important to you that they arrive as soon as possible. You would appreciate other drivers making room to keep that precious time short, wouldn’t you? Regardless of what the law might say you must be prepared to extend that same courtesy to others by getting out of the way yourself. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www. drivesmartbc.ca. Cst. Tim Schewe (Rtd.), DriveSmartBC

Education changes people’s lives Years ago a principal and a teacher reached into school board candidate Daryl Hagen’s “struggling young life and changed my whole future ... in the end I graduated from college president of my class.” Hagen is running for re-election to school board in tomorrow’s election. “Education changes peoples’ lives and we need to support that process where the rubber hits the road,” Hagen said. “For the past 21 years I have been a school trustee

Library Board adopts balanced budget The Board of Vancouver Island Regional Library has adopted a balanced operating budget of $18,213,906 for 2012. Under the Library

Daryl Hagen...running for school board. here in Campbell River ... some of the positions I have held are Board Chair, Vice Chair, Board member of BCPSEA, Vancouver Island Re g i o n a l L i b r a r y

Board, Vice Chair of the then Mentally Handicapped Board. I am employed by MCFD as shift supervisor of a corrections facility for young offenders. I have a passion for kids and in a way I am trying to repay that principle and teacher for the effort they put into my life.” Hagen said there are three major issues that face us: Stable funding. “We need to be able to plan our future as the largest employer in Campbell River. We are continually reacting

to the government’s whims of the day making decision that are not good for kids in an effort to comply with level of funding we receive.” Class room size and composition. “How can best practices occur when we jam as many kids as we can in a classroom (despite the fit and the challenges) in an effort to comply with a poorly envisioned contract. Positive working relationships. “We are in the middle of a contract labour dispute and in it all we

need to maintain the great working relationship that we have all worked hard to build ... the last thing we need is the petty sabre rattling that sometimes occurs at the provincial level to trickle down and ruin some of the good things that are occurring.” “We have one of the best districts in the province and I want to assist in making it even better,” Hagen said. “It has been an honour to serve on the Board for the past years. I would ask for your support again this term.”

Act, public libraries are required to adopt a balanced budget for the following year prior to Dec. 31. This year, the provincial government provided $1,265,213 – $79,294 more than last year – which included grants for BC One Card and

Literacy Equity that were expected to be eliminated after 2010. The government announced that it will require comprehensive reporting for the grants to meet provincial priorities, develop local capacities and ensure

accountability. This fiscal year, BC government’s budget for the public library sector is $13,990,000. Municipal and rural levies will contribute $16,486,603 to the library budget, which includes increases to cover expenditures due to

provincial minimum wage and pension rate adjustments, and expenditures for future new or expanded facilities. In June of last year, the Board approved a 10-year plan to deal with the more than $2.4 million in deferred maintenance at VIRL’s 38 branches.

Boise Broncos add Taylor Padington Taylor Padington of Campbell River, British Columbia, is the newest member of the Boise State women’s swimming and diving team, head coach Kristin Hill announced, Tuesday. Padington, currently a senior at Claremont Secondary School, swims freestyle events. “Taylor is one of the fastest recruits we have ever signed, particularly in the 200, 500 and 1000 freestyle,” Hill said. “She also has some speed, so our relays will continue to be strong with Taylor as a potential leg on all of our freestyle relays. Taylor is motivated in training and competition, and her desire to represent Canada and Boise State at the international level is something we are excited to help her accomplish.” Padington is coached by Aaron Dahl at Island Swimming. She was the recipient of the 201011 Age Group Trophy for achieving the highest aggregate Fina points in the 15-17 age group for the season. She holds Canadian Olympic Trials cuts in the 100-, 200-, 400-, 800- and 1500-meter freestyle events. Padington is a Swim BC champion in the 200-, 400- and 800-meter freestyle events. She also helped Island Swimming to provincial records in the 200-meter medley relay and 800-meter freestyle relay. Padington is the captain of the Claremont swim team. Outside of the pool, she is a four-time honor roll student and a member of the Slam Poetry Club and student leadership at Claremont. “Before I even had the chance to visit Boise I liked it,” Padington said. “Coach Hill was a great help throughout my entire recruiting process, it felt as if I knew her before I even met her. When I had the chance to go on my recruiting trip I fell in love with Boise. The team is super close and made me feel welcomed which was really important to me. When I got the opportunity to watch the team swim I saw what a great job coach Kristin and Justin (Brosseau) are doing within the practice. The Boise State swimming and diving team is improving rapidly and I can’t wait to be part of their growing success.” Boise State swimming and diving is in its first season as a member of the Mountain West after winning back-to-back Western Athletic Conference Championships. The program is in its sixth year of existence. Padington is one of seven signees for the Broncos in the fall signing period.

Campbell River kayaker on a roll Kayak enthusiasts, in particular Greenland style paddlers from the West Coast regions of North America travelled to the Seattle area October 26-30 for the North American Greenland Kayak Competition, a celebration of traditional kayaking skills being held at Kayak Academy’s Center at Lake Sammamish State Park in Issaquah, Washington. The competition included traditional Greenland events of distance racing, kayak rolling, ropes gymnastics and harpoon throwing.

Local Greenland paddler Allan Dunham won Gold in the premier event of Greenland Kayak Rolling. Actually the podium was swept by Vancouver Island… with second and third places being taken by two Victoria rollers. There are 35 different rolls in a Greenland competition. Rolls using a Greenland paddle, some with a Norsaq (Throwing Stick), and others that are just using your hands or a clinched fist. There are even a couple of rolls that the competitor

A skirt of skin was worn by the paddler and sewn to the boat to prevent the frigid water of the region from entering the kayak. Because a wet exit wasn’t possible once sewn into the boat, the Eskimo roll maneuver became a critical means of righting the kayak without leaving the cockpit.

(Qaannat Kattuffiat) organized national kayaking championships and compiled a selection of rolling manoeuvres for competition. Rolling purely as a self-rescue technique is like jumping off a diving board without doing any twists or flips. It has a tendency to get boring once the initial intimidation is overcome. Kayakers who master the basic rolls often have an inclination toward creating more difficult tricks. “Because I can,” is often the only rationale for rolling a kayak in ways that have little basis in real-life capsize situations. With the growing popularity in North America of traditional kayaking techniques, and the continuing activity of Greenland paddling in kayak clubs, new ideas and innovations have advanced the state of the art. Vancouver Island, and in particular the Campbell River and Comox Valley areas are becoming a Greenland Kayaking hotbed, boasting a large number of Greenland paddlers and is attracting the all the top Greenland kayak instructors and teachers. Interested people can contact Campbell River Paddlers at crpaddlers.com. Campbell River Paddlers is a local paddling club that hosts a large spectrum of paddlers from beginners to experts.

Vanier was assessed its first pass interference penalty that cost them about 30 yards. Timberline then threw a perfect pass to a wide-open receiver for another TD and added a two-point conversion to make it 28-0.

control Timberline’s running and passing, but another defensive interference penalty set them back on their own 10-yard line. Timberline scored again and tacked on a twopoint convert. At this point, because of the large point difference, the referees went to a run time where the clock keeps running unless there is a time out or an injury. Timberline kicked off and Vanier returned the ball to the Wolves’ 10-yard line with some hard running and shear willpower. Vanier’s drive stalled once

more against Timberline’s defence, so Vanier kicked a field goal for Vanier’s first points of the game. Vanier kicked off and recovered the ball on the 50-yard line. Timberline’s defence stopped Vanier once more, and the Wolves ran the ensuing punt back for a major. “Their player was able to get outside (our) contain and by some poor tackling by our offence,” said Campbell. The two-point convert was good. Timberline kicked off and Vanier drove the ball up the field.

RABU – Louise Marie Josephine (née Lezoraine) An adventurous 92 year journey, which began on August 15, 1919 in Brittany, France and continued on to Australia (1949), then Winnipeg (1958) and eventually Vancouver Island (1971), ended on November 5, 2011 when Louise decided it was time to join Marcel, her loving tango partner of 67 years whom she missed so much. This true Bretonne, who taught 3 generations of Rabus how to wield a crêpe pan, will be remembered for her fierce strength, love, wit and her love of theatre, dogs and 'la famille'. She leaves behind a large family of admirers: her 3 children Michel Rabu (Kim Black), Lily Brennan (Peter Brennan), Joëlle Rabu (Dusty Rhodes); her 8 grandchildren: Daniel Rabu (Angela), Rachel Diamont, Yanik Allard, Leah Jensen, Nicole Ronse (Peter), Patrick Brennan, Jace Rhodes (Lisa) and Nico Rhodes (Jamie), and her 11 great grandchildren: Gabrielle, Adrien, Alexandre, Joshua, Dominique, Tyler, Nathan, Laurent, Sasha, Alexander and Luca. By request, there will be no public service, as the family will gather in a private ceremony.

September 30, 1919 – November 13, 2011 It is with great sadness his family announces his passing on November 13, 2011 at Campbell River Hospital.
