Director accused of fear-mongering Fanned flames of waste incinerator controversy during civic election KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Outgoing councillor Roy Grant says a newsletter written by a Strathcona Regional District director, accusing Campbell River council members of supporting a mass burn garbage facility, is “slanderous” and “fear-mongering.” Grant said Jim Abram, regional director for Area C (Quadra and Discovery Islands), lied in a memo that was circulated on Quadra Island through a local newspaper. “This article is nothing short of slanderous mis-information. Nothing short of intentional fear-mongering,” Grant said at last Thursday’s Regional District board meeting. “Our city council has not discussed a mass burn site at the Elk Falls Mill site, either in public city council meetings or in-camera (behind closed doors). There are no secrets.” Abram, who writes a twice

monthly report in the Discovery Islander to keep his constituents informed and up-to-date, wrote in a newsletter on Nov. 7 that “Campbell River has high hopes for a facility at the Elk Falls mill site for a ‘mass burn’ site...that means no sorting, just dumping raw garbage into an incinerator and lighting it up.” Abram goes on to tell his constituents “as you can imagine, I was horrified, having spent so many years monitoring the pollution from the mill.” Abram finished the letter by saying “I thought you should know about this since it will be a very major dispute in the next few months. This will affect us. I must say here, that so far we have no details and it may never happen. But keep informed just in case.” Abram said there was “absolutely nothing slanderous and anything intentional in the newsletter” but that he was informing his readers on Quadra Island of what occurred at a Comox Continued on A8

Also, a donation jar will be set up downtown this Friday at Starlight Shopping and many other fundraising ideas are in the works. Although Massey said police received reports of a young man setting off fire works shortly before the fire started, he said these reports do not appear to be related to the fire. He said the fire is not suspicious in nature. “At this juncture, we’re quite comfortable that the fire itself was caused from within the residence,” said Massey. “It looks like probably a situation in the home with a woodstove, perhaps with some combustibles.”

Ballot card rejection clarified An article titled ‘The ins and outs of ballot counting’ which appeared in Friday’s Mirror reported that 156 ballots were rejected in the municipal election and that a ballot was rejected if a section of the voting card was left blank. However, if a voter did not vote in either the race for mayor, for councillors, or school trustee, just the section that was left blank was rejected, not the entire voting card. For example, if someone voted for mayor, for councillors, but not for school trustees, that person’s vote for mayor and councillors would still be counted but the school trustee section would be counted as rejected.

It’s a lot of turkeys,” said Reynolds, adding that 100 would go to the Salvation Army and 600 would go to the foodbank. “I brought Butterball Corporate into this. I’m pretty confident that we’re going to do 700 turkeys. “Every family in Campbell River will be guaranteed a turkey dinner this year.”

T

he River radio station’s third annual River Relief Truck kicksoff this week, and is expected to be bigger than ever. Dave Reynolds, 99.7 The River’s program director and morning show host will live in a 53 foot trailer in an effort to help out the local foodbank. He will sleep, eat and broadcast his morning show from the trailer, and won’t stop until it’s full of non-perishable food items, which will go to the Campbell River Foodbank. He’s confident the community will help fill the trailer quickly. “I’m pretty sure this is going to be our best year yet,” said Reynolds. “Ultimately, my goal with this event is to sustain the Campbell River Foodbank year round.” Reynolds will move into the truck tomorrow. The location has changed from last year; this year it will be in Mariner Square, (parking lot near London Drugs and Save On Foods), instead of Merecroft Village.

Dave Reynolds (right) gets some musical support from musician (and Spirit Square manager) Jim Creighton during last year’s River Relief Truck effort.

Last year, the River Relief Truck raised about $250,000 in nonperishable food items, filling the truck in just eight days, and supplying the foodbank until this past July. The initiative does not solicit people for money, only nonperishable food items. However, Reynolds said there are some people who would like to donate money to the foodbank, and now there’s an option for online donations on

the Campbell River Foodbank’s website. While Reynolds said he is not sure how fast the truck will fill up, especially with the change of location, if the initiative turns out to be “off the chain,” and the truck fills up really fast, Reynolds’ said that won’t be the end. “We’re going to play it by ear and we’ll see how the first truck develops, and if we can load up one truck in five days, we’re

A fire on Nancy Greene Drive set off blue and white flames, destroyed property and ate away at trees last Friday afternoon. “It was a flashy fire with a lot of black smoke and large flames,” said Ian Baikie, deputy fire chief. “When I arrived it was rocking and rolling.” Baikie said firefighters were called to the 700 block of Nancy Greene at 3:50 p.m. and were on scene by 4 p.m. “A shed was quite involved when we arrived and we struggled to prevent it from g etting into some trees,” Baikie said. He said the fire star ted in a shed behind the house and

Baikie said a fire investigator could not determine the exact cause of the fire but said there are two possibilities. “We found an extension cord out there which the homeowner said went to a light,” Baikie said. “There could have been something left on the cord and it (the cause) could have been electrical.” He also said it’s pos-

sible the fire may have been started by a cigarette. Although the homeowner was not home at the time of the fire, Baikie said a couple of people were in the shed smoking before they left the house. Baikie said because the shed was covered in a rubber pond liner, “it made for a hot, smoky fire.” He also said the shed was full of camping gear, including some

propane tanks, which caused three different small explosions. Baikie said it took 10 firefighters, with two fire engines, about 20 minutes to put out the fire. Neighbours on Ralph Hutton, which runs parallel to Nancy Greene, also pitched in by bringing their garden hoses to the back fence. Baikie said no one was injured in the blaze and there was no damage to any homes.

Shelter receives funding to help keep homeless out of the cold KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Funding passed on to the Salvation Army from the city will allow the Extreme Weather Shelter to be open longer this year. City council received $50,000 from the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) in July and then directed the city’s Homelessness Coalition to decide where the funds could best be spent. The coalition made the decision to grant $6,780 of the funding to

the Salvation Army at a meeting on Nov. 10. “This money would allow for an extension to the shelter hours and allow them to open for an additional 15 days this year,” said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services, in a report to council. “It is clear that this expenditure directly addresses the homelessness issue.” The Extreme Weather Shelter provides a safe, warm, dry place for the homeless. Through the shelter the Salva-

tion Army provides low bar rier emergency housing, safety and referrals to support services. At the shelter, each person is given toiletries, a shower, and a clean set of pajamas, said Kevin Mack, Salvation Army community ministries director. For the past five years, the Extreme Weather Shelter has been open from Nov. 1 to Mar. 31, weather dependent, typically from 9 p.m.-7 a.m. Last year Radiant Life church opened

its building from 6-9 p.m. to help extend the hours of the shelter, however, this year it was unable to do so. “Radiant Life has now requested that the

Salvation Army take over this initiative,” Mack said in a report to council. “Unfortunately we, the Salvation Army, don’t have funds in our budget to

cover the additional cost. We love working with volunteers but must have two staff on while the facility is open for safety purposes.”

Managing 4x9 Your Money INVESTORS A Loonie powered portfolio Over the past year, the Canadian dollar – the Loonie - is doing well relative to the U.S. dollar and many other major global currencies. But for Canadians with foreign mutual fund investments, a rising Loonie can have negative consequences – unless you ignore the current currency volatility and stay the course for the long term. Here’s why. • Historically, the Canadian dollar has had many ups and downs against its U.S. counterpart. In 2002, the Loonie hit a low of 61.79 cents followed by a climb to parity and beyond. • Oil is a major reason why the Loonie has appreciated. Historically, the Canadian dollar is highly correlated with the price of oil. Canada is a signi¿cant oil supplier and as demand (and crude prices) increase, the demand for Canadian dollars increases as more must be purchased to pay for this commodity. • For Canadian dollar investors

with international investments, the ascent of the Loonie has meant a portion of returns generated by global indexes have not been fully realized. Even though Canadian investors buy units in foreign investments with Canadian dollars, those dollars must be converted into foreign currencies so the fund manager can buy foreign securities. When the Canadian dollar appreciates, the foreign currency will be worth fewer Canadian dollars – causing a negative effect on that Canadian investor’s foreign assets. When the Loonie depreciates, the foreign currency is able to buy back more Canadian dollars than

Waste-to-energy controversy impacted the mayoral race – candidates KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Director Jim Abram’s “false statements” greatly affected Campbell River’s mayoral race, says outgoing councillor Ziggy Stewart. Stewart, who ran for mayor along with fellow outgoing councillor Roy Grant, says Strathcona Regional District Director Abram’s newsletter regarding a mass burn site tainted the election. “His comments caused irreversible damage to mine and councillor Grant’s mayoralty campaign,” Stewart said. “I expect him to acknowledge he was wrong

and apologize publicly to myself, councillor Grant and really the citizens of Campbell River.” Abram wrote in his twice monthly director’s report, distributed to his constituents on Quadra Island, that “Campbell River has high hopes for a facility at the Elk Falls mill site for a ‘mass burn site’ site... that means no sorting, just dumping raw garbage into an incinerator and lighting it up.” The Waste-to-Energ y facility was one of seven options a consulting firm laid out in a report to the Comox Strathcona Solid Waste Management

Board for dealing with the region’s solid waste. But Stewart said that option did not make the short list for consideration and said Abram’s report contained “false statements.” “He flat out lied,” Stewart said. “He could’ve corrected his statements at any time, but he chose not to. This was politics at its worst, which overshadowed common sense with fear and misinformation.” Stewar t said during the election campaign, rumours of a mass burn site spread like wildfire and both he and Grant received several angry phone calls and e-mails. One e-mail,

from a community-formed advisory committee, lead by Duncan Bay road residents, singled out Grant and Stewart for supporting burning garbage at the Elk Falls mill site and told other members of the group who they should and should not vote for. “It was all based on Abram’s comments – they were false,” Stewart said. “So all of this was crap.” Abram said his newsletter had nothing to do with the election. “I cannot be held responsible for what happened in the Campbell River mayoral race,” Abram said. “I’m not going to rise to the bait. The fact is I was

reporting what came out of the Comox Strathcona Solid Waste Management meeting (Nov. 3). “I apologized profusely to both candidates who feel they have been wronged at the meeting, apparently for something I had no intention of doing.” Grant said Abram’s words have caused irrepairable damage. “This article was very unfair to the Campbell River directors around this table (Regional District) and to the two incumbent city councillors not on the SRD (Strathcona Regional District) Board,” Grant said. “Then, without both-

ering to first gather any facts, and with the purpose of fear-mongering to the Campbell River public, this article was used by one of the Campbell River mayoral candidates by advertising ‘no burning garbage’ in both local newspapers, the day before the municipal election. “It doesn’t matter how the Quadra director (Abram) tries to stickhandle his way around this issue, it did significant irrepairable damage to our community. What a way to destroy the trust, the collaboration and teamwork we (most of us) had built up over the years.”

Waste-to-energy controversy: Area D director Jim Abram says all he did was report to his constituents Continued from A1 Strathcona Solid Waste Management Board (which Regional District directors sit on) meeting on Nov. 3 in Campbell River. Abram said at that meeting, there was a conversation between the directors about whether or not any municipality in the region should be able to regulate a deal with a waste management corporation without having to refer it back to the Solid Waste Management Board. Abram said he and two

other directors wanted to see the Solid Waste Management Plan incorporate their concerns of allowing municipalities to go ahead with waste management deals without consulting the board. “We lost fair and square and all I did was report that to my constituents which I had every right to do as a director,” Abram said. “I was reporting information and they (directors) took it as having to do with them when it had nothing to do with them. Period.” Outgoing councillor

Ziggy Stewart, who also sits on the Solid Waste Management Board, said Abram made “false statements” about what happened at the meeting. Stewart said Abram was unhappy the other directors would not agree to strike the option of a Waste-to-Energy facility at the mill site from the AECOM consultant report, which provides seven recommendations for dealing with solid waste and the Campbell River landfill which is near capacity. “He was politicking,

the man’s got no morals,” Stewart said. “The fact is the Solid Waste Management Board was doing due diligence in learning what options were available before spending millions of dollars to dig another hole in the ground, which is all in the report. The mass burn site was brought up by AECOM but it was not under consideration. “If there was justice in this world, Mr. Abram would apologize to the Waste Management Board for his false comments.”

Claire Moglove reaffirmed Grant and Stewart’s statements in a recent press release. “A mass burn incinerator is not being considered as part of the Comox-Strathcona Regional Solid Waste Plan,” Moglove said. “To be clear, the City of Campbell River is not taking ‘bids’ on anything to do with the Catalyst site. The Catalyst site is privately owned, and the city has no authority to ‘take bids’ for any enterprise on privately-owned land. The city can facili-

tate meetings, the city can introduce potential investors to land owners, but the city cannot take ‘bids.’” The Solid Waste Management Plan will move to the public consultation phase in 2012 before a decision on how to deal with the region’s solid waste is made. Options being considered are one regional landfill in the Comox Valley, one regional landfill in Campbell River or two regional landfills, one in Comox Valley and the other in Campbell River.

Highway 19 reopened after landslides cleared J.R. RARDON BLACK PRESS

Weekend visitors to North Vancouver Island, including several women’s and youth hockey teams, were stranded for a day and a half after a series of landslides late Saturday night forced the closure of Highway 19 between Beaver Cove Junction, just south of Port McNeill, and Sayward Junction. The highway r e o p e n e d M o n d ay afternoon to singlelane, alternating traffic as work continued to clear and secure the roadway. Those prevented from returning to their permanent residences by the slides were eligible for vouchers through E m e r g e n cy S o c i a l Services centres set up Monday afternoon in Port Hardy, Port

McNeill and Campbell River, said Chuck Lok, local coordinator for the Provincial Emergency Program. “There is some assistance available for meals and accomodations for travelers unable to return home to their permanent residence,” said Lok. “If people are simply in transit while on vacation, they’re normally not eligible.” Last week’s weather caused several additional travel disruptions. Traffic on Highway 30 between Port Alice and the Highway 19 junction was reduced Sunday to intermittent, singlelane alternating traffic due to heavy flooding. And BC Ferries was forced to suspend service on the Tri-Island route between Port McNeill, Malcolm Island and Cormorant Island for most of the

day Saturday as heavy winds battered the B.C. coast. The road from Port Hardy to Holberg also remained closed Monday afternoon due to mudslides, though Western Forest Products is running a supply boat from Coal Harbour to Holberg. The Holberg to Winter Harbour Road remains open. The slides on Highway 19, which closed 115 kilometres of roadway, were triggered by torrential rains that fell Friday evening and throughout the day and night Saturday. There were at least six slides on the highway between Woss and Sayward, said one Emcon worker who had been on site early Sunday. Three of those were major slides that will require more than 30 hours to clear enough to allow the single lane

of traffic to pass. “I guess we’re going back to the Haida Way and hang out there for a day or two,” Parksville’s Gail Downey said Sunday afternoon. Downey was one of a number of parents who accompanied the Oceanside Generals peewee hockey team for games in Port Alice and Port McNeill this weekend. “We’ve been checking around, and there’s a bowling alley in Port Hardy. We’ll probably go to the lounge later to watch the Grey Cup.” Three women’s hockey teams in Port Hardy for the annual Wild Women’s tournament were stuck following Sunday’s playoffs. Two players with young children at home and no backup child-care plan actually flew to Vancouver Sunday to catch a ferry back to the Island

below the slides. Fourteen more chartered a flight Monday morning, but players who drove their vehicles to Port Hardy remained stranded. “One of the girls was telling me her $300 tournament was now a $600 tournament,” said Marnie Ordano of the host Port Hardy Wild team, who was scrambling to help the stranded players with food and accomodations. “I’ve got six girls on my team willing to make food, like pots of chili and soup. But we’re looking for a place to take it that they can come to eat.” The road closure has disrupted not only child care, but work and school schedules as well. The women’s hockey players in Port Hardy include a number of locals who attend col-

le ge or university down-Island and who were home just for the weekend. Hockey teams are stuck on both sides of the closure. The North Island Eagles midgets appeared headed to Nanaimo following their game Sunday in Port Alberni and will remain downIsland until the road is reopened. The PHSS wrestling team, however, managed to slip through before the slides came down, after competing in the first meet of the season Saturday in Duncan. “We got in (Saturday) night about 11:30,” PHSS wrestling coach Joe Humphreys said while watching the hockey in Port Hardy Sunday. “Apparently we just missed the closure.” The flooding and slides were the lat-

est in several days of weather-related disruptions on the North Island late last week. An extreme high tide combined with heavy onshore winds Thursday undermined a coastal home on the Fort Rupert Reserve, threatening to topple it into the water. A f t e r vo l u n t e e r s hastily removed belongings, workers with heavy equipment – including a backhoe and small bulldozer – attempted to preserve the home by fortifying the seawall with large rocks and logs. Also, power was knocked out to homes in Nimpkish Heights and Hyde Creek south of Port McNeill for about two hours during Friday’s high winds.

Victim succumbs to injuries A man succumbed to injuries sustained in a two vehicle collision near Roberts Lake. According to North Vancouver Island Traffic Services, a 36-year-old Cumberland man was airlifted to a Victoria hospital with serious injuries after the collision at about 11 a.m. Sat., Nov. 12. He passed away in hospital just over a week later, on Mon., Nov. 21. His name is not being released. A 29-year-old Victoria man driving a GMC Sierra pick-up was transported to Campbell River hospital via ambulance at the time of the collision, but was later released. The 36-year-old Cumberland man was driving a Toyota pick up. Neither vehicle had passengers.

According to North Vancouver Island Traffic Services’ Sgt. Mark Whitworth, the GMC was travelling southbound through a curvy section of road when it lost control and slid into the oncoming lane. The Toyota was travelling northbound and flew off the road when it hit the GMC in the passenger side. The Toyota “subsequently ended up overturned down the embankment,” said Whitworth. “The road conditions with the fresh snow – slippery conditions definitely contributed to it.” Investigators do not believe alcohol was a factor, according to traffic services. The investigation is ongoing, with the BC Coroner’s office and an Island District Analyst/Reconstructionist now assisting.

While Whitworth said he is unsure if speed was a factor in this particular collision, he said he’s seen too many accidents in this area related to drivers going too fast for road conditions. He gives a general warning for drivers to slow down. “Clearly people don’t understand the grave danger that exists,” said Whitworth. “Unless you’re lying in a ditch with water trickling down through the windshield, you don’t realize you were going too fast. “Don’t ever wait for that to happen before you slow down.” Anyone who witnessed the collision on Sat., Nov. 12 is asked to contact North Vancouver Island Traffic Services at 250-286-6221 or Crime Stoppers at 250-287-8477.

Our View

Voters leaving system behind If the aim is to engage more of the electorate, getting citizens involved at a young age is a great idea. But the province’s plan to register 16-year-olds two years before they’re eligible to vote is missing the point. We say: Time for The idea of providing high school students with a better understanding democracy to of our system of democracy is somecatch up with the thing that should have been done long ago. With dismal numbers in municirest of society pal elections across B.C., and turnout dropping at both the federal and provincial polls, it’s time to take a long look at what role citizens want to

play in government. The concept of electing candidates and essentially giving them the keys to the cupboards for three years has served us surprisingly well. But most people aren’t comfortable with the idea of voting in a benign dictatorship, which in many ways is what we do – at least at the federal and even provincial level. The electorate prefers to have confidence that it holds the hammer, ready to wield it on any government that pushes its luck a little too far. We also have learned to exercise our rights in other ways, exerting a collective will through choices we make as consumers and the causes we stand behind.

If anything, democracy seems to be thriving everywhere but at its most symbolic core – the ballot box. Perhaps it is that citizens want to feel like they are engaged and that they can contribute in ways that are tangible. One of the inevitable changes coming to the way we pick our politicians is by allowing online voting. We’ve already seen with the last census that there are ways to engage citizens securely, and in a way that keeps individuals from being counted more than once. It’s time for our democratic system to catch up to the rest of society. – Black Press

Good point: Occupy People from the Occupy Campbell River movement who have been gathering at Spirit Square every Saturday morning met last week and decided to adjourn any further protests until mid January. At that time, anyone interested in carrying on the Occupy protests can meet and decide on future actions. At the Saturday rallies, people from all age groups had discussions, sang protest songs and carried signs with the central message being to take back democracy from greedy corporate control. Like other similar Occupy protests around the world, Occupy Campbell River protesters wish to participate actively in bringing about changes to the government and systems we live under that do not work for us - changing them into a more equitable and cooperative way of living with each other and keeping our planet’s environment healthy. This starts with opposing what is occurring in most countries and promoted by most governments: furthering the goals of mega corporations, banks and billionaires – goals to maximize profits for the top 1% of the population at the expense of increasing inequities for 99% of the earth’s population and emphasizing ‘economy’ over ‘ecology’. Occupy movements oppose the lowering of standards in environmental protection, lowering wages and benefits, decreasing access to adequate health care, shelter and other basic human needs and lowering the standard of living – all in the name of maximizing profits for the top one per cent. In summary, the Occupy movement is about getting Continued on A13

Case backlog puts court system close to collapse

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

One of the last exchanges in the B.C. legislature’s fall session was over the state of the court system. Drug dealers are walking free, NDP leader Adrian Dix reminded Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond in the final question period. Dix referred to a Prince George case this fall where a convicted cocaine dealer racked up more trafficking charges while he was on trial, and then was released because he couldn’t be tried in a timely fashion. The NDP was picking up on an unusually political speech last week by B.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Bauman. Speaking to the annual B.C. judges’ conference in Las Vegas, Bauman warned that fund-

ing cuts have the B.C. court system “going over a cliff in slow motion.” The cuts are real. By next year, court service budgets are expected to be down 10 per cent since 2008, and staff down 15 per cent. The provincial court is down 17 judges from 2005. There aren’t enough clerks. And the federal government is about to push through new sentencing guidelines that will add more inmates to B.C.’s overflowing prison system. Bond, the overworked B.C. Liberal minister doing double duty as Attorney General, replied that some of the budget cuts are being reversed. More sheriffs have been trained, and

14 provincial court judges have been hired in the past two years (Meanwhile, provincial judges are suing the deficit-laden government, demanding a six-per-cent raise). Bond also pointed to long-term strategies being implemented to relieve the flood of court cases. It’s this kind of systemic change that has the most potential for long-term reform of our archaic system. Right now there are an estimated 2,000 cases in provincial court that are running long enough to risk being dismissed due to delays. It’s not a crime wave; a quarter of all cases in provincial and B.C. Supreme Court are family disputes over kids and property.

The Family Law Act has been in the works for years, and it sailed through the legislature with NDP support. It encourages out-of-court settlements in family breakups, equalizes common-law rules with those for married couples and does away with the terms “custody” and “access” that suggest children are to be fought over as if they are property. Bond also pointed to B.C.’s harsh new administrative penalties for drinking and driving, which have kept most routine impaired cases out of court. Police have the authority to impound vehicles and impose heavy fines on the spot, when drivers fail Continued on A13

Occupy to return Continued from A12 involved to make things better in the world. To quote the vision statement from Occupy Wall Street: “… we work together to protect the global environment to ensure future generations will have safe and clean air, water and food supplies…learn to live in harmony and embrace principles of toleration and respect for diversity and differing views of others…secure civil and human rights of all from violation by tyrannical forces and unjust governments.” How to get there can involve everything from examining our own value systems and living more within our means to getting involved in social causes and groups and being the change you want to see in the world. To ordinary citizens wanting to participate in this global movement and bring these ‘Occupy’ ideas into action, we’ll see you in mid January at a date/time/ place to be announced. For further information, check out the Occupy Campbell River facebook site on the computer. Rich Hagensen

Encourage apprenticeships Kudos to the 30 per cent of the electorate that voted on Nov. 19, thanks to the candidates who offered their service and thanks for electing me as a Trustee. During the campaign, where the candidates’ exposure was limited, I tried to emphasize the importance of “trades” in the future plans of our students and the community needs for these specialized skills. Canada predicts a one-million person trades shortfall by 2020. The B.C. projection for this region is a shortfall of 6,850 carpenters and cabinet makers by 2019. To meet this anticipated need North Island College, Comox Valley campus developed a plan for a “Trades Training Centre.” The Centre was opened last February; cost $9 million, boasts 2,700 sq. meters, serves 112 carpentry apprentices annually, plumbing and piping,

marine education (piloting) and upgrading for trades programs; 160 students capacity. A nearby campus is a plus for Campbell River secondary students moving into “hands on” stuff. I am looking forward to the Century 21 Learning Initiatives being introduced by B.C. Campbell River (SD 72) has an existing carpentry training program at Carihi (sponsored by Seymour Pacific) that offers dual credit first year college accreditation (at NIC) courses to graduates. Sealand Aviation offer aircraft structures courses at Timberline high school. There are other trade initiatives and opportunities out there. My plan is to lobby my fellow trustees, senior management, educators and the senior governments with the long range purpose of seeing the College build our

own “trades centre” right here in Campbell River. The Comox Valley enjoyed federal and provincial funding aid, support from industry and the greater community. The reality is that the success of the Comox Valley centre will have a direct {pilot} bearing on whether further funding / new centers are forthcoming. Our young people now have a close by opportunity for quality trades apprenticeship training. We should encourage them. At the same time we should try to start the ball rolling for that day when the need and the political tide may yield a centre here. In the meantime our school district and the community at large might look at ways to expand the trades’ initiation/offerings in our secondary schools. We traditionally think of traditional “shops” and the Continued on A14

Rotary Club does it again T

his year’s annual Rotary Live TV Auction grossed over $80,000 this past weekend. “Rotary appreciates the local businesses, organizations, and individuals who have generously donated cash and over 550 items that were auctioned off over the past weekend,” said Rotary’s Jim Forsyth. “Also a big thank you is in order to all those bidders who helped us with another successful fund raising event.” The Rotary Club of

Campbell River was founded in 1946 and it has over 85 members. They meet at noon every Wednesday in an atmosphere of club spirit and fellowship. They participate in a wide-range of community, youth, and international projects including hosting international students in our community and sponsoring local students to visit other nations through Youth Exchange. Over the years, the club has put millions of dollars and tens of thousands of volunteer hours into making the com-

munity and the world a better place to live. Rotary projects in Campbell River have included such projects as the Seawalk, the outdoor pool and Cari’s Infant Daycare Centre. In the Spring of 2012 the construction of the Campbell River Water Park will start and it has been decided by the club that the majority of the money from this year’s Rotary TV Auction will go towards Elk Falls Suspension Bridge. “We are also very proud of the contribution we make to

the local community through the Campbell River Rotary Club Foundation which has accumulated a total of $140,000 as a permanent fund for distributing bursaries to local students,” Forsyth said. “To date, the Foundation has distributed over $60,000 to 53 local students.” So...What is Rotary? “Rotary is an organization of business and professional persons united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.” Rotary is the world’s oldest service club – a worldwide organization of more than 1.3 million business and professional people in more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries. Club members are called Rotarians, and they volunteer their time and talents to serve their communities and the world.

Education

Continued from A13 attendant high costs of their operation. I support those programs. I see a need for an elective course or two that would address the students need for trades knowledge as in what is available, where, when, the need, the process, the qualifications, contacts and most importantly, what is it {future job} all about. The cost of getting industry speakers, retired personnel with trades experience, films, inter active stuff etc. would be negligible. Hear and see stuff on the oil sands, Ft. McMurray, ship building, sea farming, forestry, firefighting, police and other items of interest. Could we better serve this potential segment of our young that is now perhaps over represented in attrition and drop out statistics? I will be one voice in seven on the board. There are other priorities/interests. A common lobby, where needs are voiced by many, is effective. Tell your trustees what you think. Ted Foster School trustee-elect

Student converts car to electric be a candidate for electric conversion. The car also had a manual transmission, doors, and locks, and a reputation for burning oil, making them more affordable on the used car market. “I wanted to see if I could do it,” he said. “I was looking at the electric cars that were coming out of Detroit and I thought it might just be possible.” Davidovics took out the gas engine and transmission, sourced recently available lithium batteries, an electric motor and components, cut a hole in the trunk to make room for a third battery, and contacted a machinist to build custom parts. The process was not without setbacks or cost, but Davidovics was deter mined to make the Saturn his main form of daily transportation in and around Campbell River. The car costs $4 to charge and has an estimated range of 160 kilometres per charge. Depending on his use and speed, a single charge lasts about a

said NIC instructor Cory Batch, who graduated from the program himself about 15 years ago. “It literally uses all the same equipment, controls, and feedback that our students learn in class. It will be interesting to see how David integrates the skills he learns in the program into his own or other electric cars.”

NIC continually works with industry and employers to ensure students have the knowledge and applied skills to grow with the industry. “David’s skill set is right on target,” said Batch. “Electric cars are the technology of the future. Our students need to learn the theory and applied skills to work in the industry.”

From the outside, David Davidovics’ car looks like any other older-model four-door sedan, but on the inside this car has an electric secret. Davidovics designed and created the e-car himself over three years, then registered in North Island College’s (NIC) Electronics Technician Core program to perfect the car’s performance. “After building the car, I decided there was still a lot to learn about electronics and there is only so much you can do at home,” he said. “I wanted a program that would allow me to understand the car’s electrical components. Anyone can buy components and install them; I wanted to know what goes into them.” About three years ago, Davidovics bought a 1996 Saturn in Victoria and headed home to Campbell River determined to test his idea. Though he’d never driven an electric car before, Davidovics knew the Satur n frame was both light and sturdy enough to

Sand bags were made available to residents in flood prone areas. While mudslides occurred on sections of the highway up past Sayward, Campbell River faired this storm with no major raincaused events. BC Hydro also prepared for the big storm, and while the water in the reservoir rose, it was kept under control. “ B C H yd r o w a s able to absorb the full brunt of the storm for flood risk management because of the lower than normal reservoir level for the time of year,” said BC Hydro spokesperson Stephen Watson. “Leading up to this intense but shor t duration storm event, the weather had been cool and dry, and what precipitation that did occur fell as snow.” Starting Saturday night, the Upper Campbell Reservoir/Buttle Lake rose approximately one and a half metres in 36 hours. The peak hourly inflow into the reservoir hit a very high 1500 m3/s at 7:00 a.m. Sunday, which Watson said is almost a one in ten year storm event. The reservoir is now about one and a half metres from levels where BC Hydro begins to spill water through the system for flood risk management. There are no spills forecast for the immediate future.

CITIZENS ON GARBAGE PATROL “Citizens On Garbage Patrol” need your help identifying areas where garbage has been illegally dumped. If you come across an area you suspect as an illegal dumping site please email a picture, details of the items and location and we will print it. cogp@campbellrivermirror.com

Old Aquarium Dumped in the John Hart Lake Watershed in the past year. Broken aquarium used to house living creatures, now dumped in the John Hart Lake watershed to harm them. You could have recycled the glass to make road material and the cardboard to make more cardboard. Instead, the cardboard will rot, leaving the sharp glass to injure some unsuspecting bear or deer. For more info on what to do with your unwanted household items, visit campbellriverrecycles.ca or call 250-203-2316.

Anyone with information on the person/s who illegally dumped these items can call CRIMESTOPPERS 1-800-222-TIPS or 250-286-5700. Think you won’t get caught? Think again! Go to: www.campbellriverrecycles.ca for locations that will take this kind of garbage!

Five local martial artists make provincial team medal in the men’s black belt plus 84 kg sparring. Following his lead were Brody Waterton who placed third in the boys 14-15 sparring, and Kyell Erickson, a medalist at last year’s national championships, moved up to the 16-17 division and managed a hard fought bronze medal at this tournament. Not to be outdone the girls turned in a stellar performance with Courtenay Brake leading the way with a silver in girls 16-17 sparring. Brake, only 15 had to challenge up as she is aiming for a national championship berth and will turn 16 before nationals so must compete in 16-17. Valerie Doyon turned in a strong performance as well.

Bantam Tyees crush Cowichan Capitals The Tyee line of Travis Goodwin, Gavin Rauser and Grady McInnes was simply unstoppable, combining for 21 points as the No. 1 Auto Body Bantam ‘A’ Tyees cruised to a convincing 12-1 victory over the Cowichan Valley Capitals Sunday afternoon at Strathcona Gardens. It was the second lopsided win in a row for the Tyees over the Caps and improved Campbell River’s record to 2 wins and 3 losses in VIAHA Tier 1 league play. Head coach Peter Martin says his team may have turned the corner and likes the way things are shaping up for the second half of the season. “A lot of these guys played together on the peewee team that won the provincial championship two years ago,” he said. “And at the beginning of the season they may have thought it was going to be easy to do it again.But what they’ve been reminded of recently is there’s a lot of hard work involved. I give them credit because they stuck together and persevered through a real tough stretch and some frustrating results.” McInnes led the attack for the Tyees, scoring five times, while Rauser and Goodwin had two apiece. Singles went to Tyees Joe Gage, Sage Lim, and Nick KleinBeekman. Bryce Eppler also contributed, adding a pair of assists. “There’s no question Grady is a finisher,” Martin said of McInnes, who piled up nine points in the contest. “Playing on the wing has given him more freedom and when he gets the puck in a one-on-one situation he’s very dangerous.” The Tyees led 3-1 after the first period and a whopping 8-1 after two. They outshot the Capitals by a final count of 42-12. Martin also praised

first year winger Sage Lim for his improved play of late. “Sage has always

been a great goalscorer, but this year, with the players so much bigger and faster, he has had

to adjust his game,” Martin said. “He’s taken his lumps but continued to work hard. What impresses

me most is the size of his heart – he never gives up. He’s a real inspiration to his teammates.”

The Tyees hit the road for a pair of games this weekend. They take on the Clippers in Nanaimo

Saturday afternoon and then travel to Port Alberni for a date with the Bulldogs on Sunday. TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS

All About Starlight Shopping.... Doug Folkins, Bob by Jan Tees BIA Events Coordinator Robertson, Cat & the jantees@hotmail.com For the past 13 years the Downtown Campbell River Business Improvement Area (BIA) has held an event in early December called Starlight Shopping which marks the beginning of the holiday season. This year the event is scheduled for Friday, December 2nd. Downtown comes alive! Shoppers Row, Tyee Plaza, Pier Street and 11th Ave businesses decorate their windows and stores. Most stores are open late until 11:00 pm offering special promotions plus hot mulled cider, hot chocolate, cookies or appetizers to name a few - a thank you for choosing to shop Downtown. Entertainment in Spirit Square features

sticks, candy canes and reindeer antler hats. The tantalizing aromas of warm mini-donuts, Kettle Korn, donairs, falafels and Asian spices will fill the air. Take a stroll over to the Art Gallery and learn how to create home made Christmas cards. Head up 11th Ave for an Art & Tasting Event or wander down to Pier Street for Whales Tails and punch balloons music at Shot in the Dark and Quench. A quick hop across Shoppers Row and you can enjoy music at Nesbitt’s Island Coffee, dancing in the Tidemark Courtyard and carollers at

B-Sides, Shoo Shoo the Clown and the Willow Point “Old School Jugglers”. To keep everybody toasty there will be a fire pit compliments of Spirit Square Manager, Jim Creighton. School Bands from Carihi and Phoenix, the Salvation Army Carollers and Street Theatre, Job’s Daughters, the Girl Guides and Imagine Campbell River liven up the Tyee Plaza with music, face painting, taffy pulling, cookie decorating and reindeer crafts. Children will enjoy pictures with Santa plus free glow

Stillwater Books & Art. Definitely something for everyone! Kicking off the evening is the much anticipated, ever popular Big Truck Parade sponsored by 97.3 the Eagle! There is nothing like watching these rolling works of art. The parade is magical. Again this year, we have over 30 participants taking the time and making the effort to become involved. We have trucks of all description - antique fire trucks, dump trucks, cement trucks, tow trucks, flatbeds, a school bus, bobcats, trucks pulling boats and finally a logging truck!

The holidays are a wonderful time of family, friends and giving and are a great example of how communities can come together to support one another. For many however, the holidays are also a time of stress and difficulty. We worry about organizing family, about money, about food, and about what we may not be able to give. Staying resilient throughout the holidays is a struggle for many of us but can be important in ensuring the holidays are a positive experience for all. Resilience is a measure of how well we manage stress. Some ways of helping build resilience throughout the holidays include: Stay positive. If you are feeling particularly negative (your family is driving you bonkers) then do an experiment where you list all the things that are good in your life. This may in

turn help your emotions become more positive even under stress. Also, if you expect things to work out in general, your deep optimism can create balance in an unstable situation. Know your boundaries. If every year you stress over the amount of money you spend and feel as though the New Year begins with you feeling over your head in debt, then stop spending as much! Try giving the gift of your time or an activity to do as a family, create your own gift, or if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not crafty, set a reasonable budget amount that your whole family will abide by. The more aware you are of your boundaries and priorities, the better you can take preventative action to avoid being negatively triggered. That said, being mentally and emotionally adaptable can be helpful in the quest for a pleasurable holiday. Encourage balance. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to go overboard on the

food and neglect exercise during the holidays or otherwise get imbalanced. Understand your priorities for yourself, your job, family, nutrition, exercise, self-renewal etc. and see if it makes sense to set aside those priorities during the holiday or stay consistent with them. Take time for yourself and do your favorite stress management activity (deep breathing, meditation, yoga, exercise etc.) for a few minutes -- it may help foster the joy and abundance that holidays are supposed to celebrate. Resilience over the holidays is important so that you can enjoy the extra time with family and friends and bounce back into a fresh New Year. Be sure to take moments for yourself and enjoy the spirit of community. Happy Holidays from everyone at Imagine Campbell River!

CR Singers Perform 7p.m. at Stillwater Books & Art Boutique on Shoppers Row In 1978 the Campbell River Singers Community choir was started by Kay Goodrich. She placed an ad in the newspaper looking for singers and that spring CR Singers was born. The choir has been singing to audiences for the past 33 years. They put on two concerts a year, a Christmas concert in December and

a spring concert in April. Usually there are 55 to 65 members at each concert. As a community choir they do not hold auditions but encourage adults who like to sing to come out and try singing with them. Along with their two concerts a year they also like to sing at Yuculta Lodge, New Horizons, Evergreen Seniors Home and

Ironwood Place during December to bring music to those who can’t always get out. This season their talented musical director John Montgomery has chosen Vivaldi’s Gloria as their classical piece and other lighter Christmas pieces. They are also lucky to have Helen Moats and Lynn Montgomery as their accompanists.

Humourist, Bob Robertson, to make Starlight Shopping part of his Cross-Canada Tour

When the Mayan Calendar runs out on December 21st, 2012, all manner of possible disasters will befall the earth, from a collision with a rogue planet, to biblical flooding, to being attacked by swarms of gnats. But just because life as we know it will come to an end, it doesn’t mean you can’t survive and even prosper financially in the post-apocalyptic world. Bob Robertson’s Mayan Horror:

How to Survive the End of the World in 2012 gives you all the vital information you’ll need to come through smiling after Armageddon wreaks havoc on the planet. All your questions will be answered: who are the Mayans? Is Maya Angelou one of them? Are oven mitts useful against the earth’s molten core? Is there a team of disaster DJs and news-readers ready to swing into action on the Emergency Alert System and do they take requests? Will the Diefenbunker protect you against landslides, unlike the one that crushed the Diefenbaker? Should you start collecting pairs of animals? Mayan Horror: How to Survive the End of the World in 2012 is the handbook you’ll

want to have in your pocket when the Mayan Calendar ticks down and all hell breaks loose. Coho Books Manager, Erika Anderson invited Robertson to come to Campbell River last summer when he was promoting his upcoming book. “I was a huge fan of Double Exposure and when I saw his hilarious presentation about this book I knew that it was an event I wanted to host at Coho Books.” The presentation will be on Spirit Square stage at approximately 7pm, with a book signing to follow at Coho Books from 7:30 to 8:15pm. Bob Robertson is a successful comedy writer in books and newspaper columns as well as co-creator and
