Mike Cardinal of Canadian Tree Services rescues a hawk that became trapped in the webbing around the Duncan Meadows Golf Club’s driving range Thursday morning. Cardinal said the bird appeared to have a leg injury and took it to Island Veterinary Clinic in Nanaimo to be examined. Other than a bite from the bird that went through Cardinal’s leather gauntlet, he rescue went smoothly.

Cowichan River: Investigators suspect toxins flushed in via storm drains

News Leader Pictorial

T

hree salmon kills around Duncan’s Fish Gut Alley this summer are being probed by all levels of government. The suspected culprit in the killing of thousands of juvenile coho is a possible toxic cocktail of motor oil, dog feces, detergents, and/or pesticides mixing in storm water Àushed into the heritage Cowichan River during rains. “The speculation is material gets built up in

the storm system during dry periods and when rain water Àushes it out, there’s a potential toxin to ¿sh,” said Rodger Hunter of the Cowichan Watershed Board. “It may have been someone pouring things down a storm drain.” Those ideas are being sleuthed by folks with municipal, provincial and federal governments, plus Cowichan Tribes. “There could also be other things contributing to water quality in that (Fish Gut) area,” Mayor Phil Kent said.

“We’re testing above and below the outfalls.” But sample testing hasn’t pinpointed a speci¿c toxin yet, he noted. “Our outfalls are old and they go straight in (the river). “We want to determine the sources and look at possible mitigation,” Kent said. That could mean taxpayers paying to treat the city’s storm water. “We’ll have to face what we have to and the way we manage our storm water,” he said.

Despite the recent coho kills, council was already studying its storm-water capacity, potentially toward treatment options, noted Kent. That capacity study, without treatment ideas, could hit city hall in about two months. Kent noted Duncan’s current dike work also “brought to light a (storm-water) problem that could have been going on for some time.” Meanwhile, Kent signalled plans are afoot for council to revisit its program of putting eco-symbols near storm drains to remind people against pouring toxins into the river. Hunter agreed. “We need to do a better job of education.”

UP FRONT

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A3

Pair of contaminated sites get cash to help deal with clean-up Cowichan is getting nearly $90,000 to help deal with toxic soil issues. Last week, the Ministry of Natural Resources announced more than $112,000 in provincial Brownfield Renewal funding to assist in the redevelopment of three local brownfield sites. According to a ministry press release, -

$72,964 has been dedicated to help the Vancouver Island Health Authority rehabilitate the Duncan Public Health Centre. VIHA had suspended services at this mental health facility after discovering an old heating tank had leaked into the ground, contaminating the soil. Meanwhile, $16,000 will assist the Cowichan Valley

Regional District in developing a closure plan for the ash-contaminater Meade Creek incinerator, which was shut down in 1998. “ Sites like these have great potential for redevelopment when the issue of contamination is addressed,” Natural Resource Minister Steve Thomson said.

Womyn’s Centre gets cash, loses storefront Looking for new home: Donations pour in, but too late to make rent deadline Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

R

ed Willow Womyn’s Centre is now homeless and looking for new storefront premises downtown. Managers of the struggling citysquare facility — providing advocacy and resources to Cowichan women — said they received enough donations during the weekend to pay September’s $642 rent.

But that help came too late to save them from eviction. The centre’s Zoe Moorhouse said their landlord changed the locks at 277 Craig Street Saturday or Sunday. She admitted Red Willow had gotten landlord warnings Zoe Moorhouse: a after falling behind in the rent hope and a prayer several times during the past two years at its Craig location. “We run on a hope and a prayer, and can appreciate his point of view — we just wanted a reasonable amount of time to relocate.” However, she stressed Red Willow’s programs are not jeopardized as the facility’s leaders remain

committed to helping local women. “Donations are still coming in,” Moorhouse said, cheering response from Friday’s News Leader Pictorial story about Red Willow’s dire ¿nancial straits. “Because of those donations, it’ll get us moved and relocated, and should get us well into the fall.” Red Willow is also chasing various operating grants. “It’s just really confusing,” she said. “Where do women go when they show up, and what happens to those with donations? “Finding a new place to rent doesn’t happen over night.” For potential locations, questions about service access and offers of donations, can be made by calling Moorhouse at 250-748-7448.

n the past 38 years, North Cowichan has given exactly three people the community’s highest honour. On Wednesday, it doubled that number. Former Mayor Anne Murray, longtime councilor Glen Ridgway and recently retired administrator Jim Dias were all granted Freedom of the Municipality during a special ceremony at the municipal hall. “Considering nominees for this award is not a role that council takes lightly,” Mayor Tom Walker noted of a decision that must be unanimously endorsed by council. A North Cowichan release Jim Dias: respect called the honour the “highest and esteem symbol of respect and esteem a local government can bestow upon an individual.” North Cowichan’s ¿rst female mayor (1996-99), Murray was recognized for her six years as councillor, 12 years as school trustee and her continuing volunteer efforts on a number of local fronts. Ridgway spent 23 years as a North Cowichan councillor, 18 years as a Cowichan Valley Regional District director, and eight on the school board. He also served on the board of the former Malaspina College and is the past-resident of The Law Society of B.C. Dias, meanwhile, was employed by North Cowichan for 36 years, becoming chief administrative of¿cer in 1991 and continuing until his retirement in 2010. His role in the creation of the new Vancouver Island University campus, the new Cowichan Exhibition, the Evans Park sports ¿eld, the Cowichan Aquatic Centre and his contributions to a variety of community groups were all cited. Freedom of the Municipality was ¿rst issued in 1973, when Charles Alexander Phipps Murison, Reginald Clegg and Donald Christopher Morton were honoured. Since that time, Adolphe VandeCasteyen (1975), Margaret Robertson (1991) and Henry Rex Hollett (1997) were added to the ranks.

ISSUES

Province says programs there to help create self-sufÄciency After hearing concerns about the province’s social safety net, the News Leader Pictorial posed a few questions to the Ministry of Social Development. Minister Harry Bloy did not consent to interview requests from the NLP, but ministry communications manager David Haslam offered some answers. Haslam said the province’s goal is to help people and families become self-sufficient so they can contribute

to an expanding economy and healthy communities. “We’re investing $341 million in employment services across the province this year, and there are many services available in the Cowichan region to help people improve their lives by preparing them for work and helping them secure a job,” he said, citing organizations such as Global Vocational Services. Haslam also responded to concerns about a lack

of communication between various provincial and federal agencies. “We work with our federal partners every day,” he said. “When a person loses a job there is a wait time for Employment Insurance benefits. It varies depending on individual circumstances. People waiting for Employment Insurance can apply for hardship assistance from the province,.”

Not the life you want for your mother or daughter Word on the street: Homelessness knows few boundaries, but women face special challenges Krista Siefken

News Leader Pictorial

C

omfort zones can be dangerous. Just ask Patti Delisle. As the founder of Red Willow Womyn’s Centre, she sees the result of complacency come through her door every day. “If the boat’s sinking, the ¿rst thing we save is women and children — and this boat is sunk,” says Delisle. “Women are starving, living in violence and poverty, and yet we don’t put them ¿rst. And we see the effects all over the place: in youth crime, in violence against women, in the mortality rate, in the emergency room, in the use of drugs and alcohol, in mental health. I don’t think it’s that dif¿cult an equation.” Homelessness in general is a problem, but Delisle stressed it’s a whole other ballgame when it comes to homelessness and women. “Women are more vulnerable and susceptible to violence and crime, and it’s very invisible,” she explained. “There’s a higher rate of discrimination against homeless women.” Then imagine adding children to the mix. “One of the highest risks of poverty is motherhood,” says Delisle. “When we look at the stats and the numbers, the majority of people on the bottom are women and children.” But what homelessness looks like varies. For some women, it’s sleeping on a couch or the back of a car. For others, it’s returning to an abusive relationship, or forfeiting custody of her children so the kids can have more than she has. “I hear the stat all the time — something like 51 per cent of the population in poverty is children,” says Delisle. “And I always say, ‘Who do you think is standing next to the child?’ That child has a mother who’s stopped eating long before the child did.’” It doesn’t help, says Delisle, when the social safety net is riddled with holes.

“There are gaps between the systems that seem to disable women from ever getting anywhere,” she says. “If a women gets housing, then she has no food, or is still ¿ghting for her kids, or she can’t pay her rent on time because her child’s father didn’t pay his maintenance, so she gets evicted.” And stigmas and stereotypes abound. But people like Serena Haire Ày in the face of those preconceived notions. Haire was renting a basement suite until she lost her job, and despite actively searching for work virtually every day, the job hunt went poorly at ¿rst. Meanwhile, Employment Insurance staff hemmed and hawed over her claim, just as welfare staffers refused to consider her until EI made its decision. “So these two systems that you’re supposed to go and are supposed to be there are essentially the reason I’m homeless,” said Haire. And for many, the loss of a home comes with a loss of dignity. “I would much rather be working and supporting my own way, but at the moment, that’s not possible,” Haire said. “For me, this is about educating the population a little bit.” A group of women who recently gathered at Red Willow to discuss homelessness quipped that although some believe those on welfare sit at home watching soap operas and eating bon bons, the reality is they can’t afford the bon bons or the cable. In many cases, they can’t even afford a roof over their heads. A single mom with half-custody of two children gets $660 a month for housing and utilities. A single woman on disability gets $375 per month of rent. “The three issues that always, always, always come in our door are affordable housing, safety and food,” says Delisle. “I’ve had people say to me, ‘Well, can’t she just go to the food bank?’ and I say, ‘You betcha, and she can get a free manicure, too.’ “People want to believe that because it’s easier than getting educated about it — because the minute you move into your discomfort zone and know the reality of this, it will require you to do something, to get out of that discomfort.” She suggests instead of dropping a box of Kraft Dinner into the grocery store’s donation bin, take F Estimree ates

Women at Red Willow Womyn’s Centre scan the rental listings, but safe, affordable Ändings are scarce. it down to the food bank and see the reality in person. “There’s so much illusion around so much of this, and it enables us to stay in and perpetuate this system.” Red Willow is planning to host a community forum about women and homelessness in the fall, in the hopes the real, lived experiences of local women can help shape Cowichan’s response to the problem.

“I think that’s our greatest resource: our humanity,” says Delisle. “I would love to encourage people to step into the corners they’ve yet to discover, and stretch themselves beyond their comfort zone into the discomfort of really understanding what this means for all of us as a whole, because it may be hidden to some, but it’s happening.” Editor’s note: This story was researched and written prior to the closure of Red Willow Womyn’s Centre.

The role of Dad changing in the Cowichan Valley Friday, September 9, 2011

Father facts: Tradition not what it used to be Krista Siefken

News Leader Pictorial

amily dynamics are shifting in Cowichan, with fathers taking on an increasingly involved role. Men are doing more housework, and spending more time actively involved in childcare than ever before. “Men are getting increasingly more involved in those kinds of traditionally female tasks, which shouldn’t be too surprising, because women are more active in the workforce than they were previously,” said Social Planning Cowichan’s Linden Collette. Statistics Canada data from 2006 — the most current stats available — indicate 25 per cent of men spend ¿ve to 14 hours a week doing housework, and 33 per cent of men spend 15 to 20 hours a week doing housework. Nine per cent of men spent ¿ve to 14 hours a week on childcare; six per cent spend 15 to 29 hours on it; three per cent spend ¿ve to nine hours on it; and two per cent spend 10 to “Without dads in the 19 hours on childcare each week. family unit, there’s Women still do the majority of an imbalance.” housework and childcare, but as ¿nancial responsibilities have been spread more evenly during the past few decades, so too have domestic responsibilities. “I think that’s a real bene¿t for children,” Collette said. “What we know about early childhood development is that those relationships, and strong ties with family and with

people who love them and help them develop, and really, really crucial in terms of preparing them for life later on, in all kinds of ways.” Another trend is the growing number of single-parent families with a dad at the helm. Census data shows that of Cowichan’s 3,570 single parents, 850 are dads. “One of the notions that we labour with in our culture — that I think is a disadvantage — is this idea of the nuclear family being everything,” Collette said. “I’m not saying that isn’t a good thing — having two parents working together is great — but even when you have that, you still need schools and playgrounds and sports and all the other kinds of things that support families: community.” That doesn’t change, Collette said, whether you’re in a two-parent family, a single-mom family, or a single-dad family. “You might use community differently, you might lean on it a little bit more, but we all need it,” she said. Grant Waldman, executive director of Cowichan Men’s Resource Centre, agreed, but said more resources are needed for dads, and kids without an active father in their lives. “We can’t underestimate the important role dads play,” he said. “Without dads in the family unit, there’s an imbalance, and it needs to be met in some way, shape or form elsewhere.” The men’s resource centre has been running its mentoring program, Boys To Men, for a few years now, but there isn’t much else offered outside of the CMRC. “I think the Cowichan Valley is challenged around supporting men in an emotional way,” Waldman said. “More programs need to be put in place, and there needs to be more recognition of the need to support men emotionally. “I get calls from men almost in tears, saying, ‘I don’t know what to do. My wife just left with the kids, and I need support.’” Part of the challenge, Waldman said, is

“Our valley is aging — when you look at our population proportionally, it’s shifting — but what hasn’t changed is that we look to the children to be the future,” Collette said. “So while we need to take care of those folks who are aging, we can’t lost track of those kids, because they’re the future, so we need to be investing there as well.”

owichan’s focus on food security will be boosted if Duncan council passes its proposed bylaw allowing up to six backyard chickens, Cowichan Green Community’s Judy Stafford said. “I’m excited, this is a long time coming. There’s an educational component so people understand what they’re getting into.” Details will be discussed during Monday’s community meeting —the second hosted by city hall on the topic — at city hall about the proposed egg- and meat-bird bylaw. The proposed bylaw calls for a maximum of six chickens, no permanent roosters, a minimum

lot size of 450 square metres, no slaughtering on premises, coop regulations and pen parameters. From Stafford’s roost, she saw no down side to Judy Stafford: city folks having unruffled hens. “It’s a great step forward. “It should be region–wide. It’s really a no-brainer,” she said. “It’s one more piece of the local food-security puzzle, really. It allows people more choice.” And many Duncanites won’t simply run out and buy birds, she noted. “They’re lots of work.” That’s where Chicken Rearing 101

comes inn. Those smarts, Stafford explained, include rat-proo¿ng chickenfeed. “If you go to all the trouble to have chickens, you won’t leave expensive feed out for rats — it’s common sense to keep feed in a secure location.” t And Duncan’s planned bylaw isn’t unique. u “Saanich, Oak Bay, and Victoria allow chickens,” she said. “We’re not breaking new ground and this is important.” Your ticket What: Duncan community meeting to discuss backyard chickens When: 7 p.m., Monday Sept. 12 Where: Duncan city hall Information: call Duncan city hall Okanagan at 250-746-6126.

We’re looking forward to some informed debate Civic election: Early interest shows promise

W

e’ve barely passed Labour Day and we already have three declared candidates for the mayor’s chair in North Cowichan. Two more have already indicated their desire for the City of Duncan’s chains of of¿ce. It looks like there will de¿nitely be races for the three southernmost area of the CVRD, and we’re already getting announcements trickling in for a variety of council tables and board seats. The upcoming Nov. 19 civic election promises to be one of the most hotly contested campaigns in years. Could it be the voters are ¿nally waking up? Here’s to We hope so. And we hope the camsome effective paign is conducted in such a way that it generates not just heat, but light. democracy in Newcomers approaching the campaign action with the mindset the status quo is made up of blind idiots probably aren’t going to get too far. Incumbents dismissing criticism as the ranting of a self-interested few could be in for a rude awakening. Local government is about three things: prudent use of tax dollars, appropriate decision-making on land use, and building and maintaining a sense of community. Those who have a reasonable approach to each based on regular contact with those who live in and care about their community should do well. We’ve seen political passion bubble up in unfortunate ways during the current term. But if it is passion that is causing people to become involved, so long as they don’t topple over the edge, we’ll take passion over apathy every time. The next step is to temper passion with wisdom and consultation. For democracy to work people need to be engaged. For it to be effective people need the give-and-take of informed discussion. You can disagree on policy, but nobody can disagree with that.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: attacking invasive species The case against

The case for It doesn’t take much argument to convince most nature-lovers that man is the most invasive species of them all. And while we continue our painful journey to minimizing our own impact on the Earth, we also need to take responsibility for those creatures that have piggybacked on us during our rapacious swath across the globe. More resources must be poured into correcting our attack on the balance of nature.

Invasive giant hogweed is being targetted in Cowichan.

Clark’s Liberals battling Campbell’s legacy Patrick Hrushowy

News Leader Pictorial

G

ordon Campbell, Gordon Campbell, Gordon Campbell,— enough already! There must be people in Premier Christy Clark’s of¿ce who pray for the day when a week goes by, or maybe even two weeks, when there is “Campbell loyalists no mention of the former name in the did not recognize he premier’s daily news cycle. is still a potent and The chance for Clark to be premier came controversial politionly because Campbell cal ¿gure.” had become a political lightning rod about the HST debacle. In the end he chose to step down because the ¿restorm was focused on him, not the issue.

Hrushowy

Mercifully, Clark was not dogged in her ¿rst months in of¿ce directly by Campbell but she had to deal with the political paralysis that seized the government in dealing with the HST. In very real terms there was little she could do to imprint her style of government; constrained as she and her cabinet were in trying to come up with ways to deal effectively with the HST, the pending referendum and its outcome. Along the way the focus of Clark’s government kept being diverted to deal with other aspects of Campbell’s legacy. We had a 30 per cent-plus rate increase application from BC Hydro that a panel of senior bureaucrats appointed by Clark’s government later said was at least half driven by policies Campbell imposed on the utility. That has to be undone. The Clark government has appointed yet another review to see what can be done to deal with the BC Ferries operating structure designed by Campbell that has become a political millstone around the government’s neck.

Isn’t the evolution and migration of plant and animal life, well, natural? And if we believe in letting nature find its natural order, then why should we waste time and energy chasing giant bullfrogs and grey squirrels? When the species in question is endangering the health of a community, as is the case with giant hogweed, then it should be dealt with. Otherwise, let nature take its course.

AN EXPERIMENT OF ONE

Complaints about excessive salaries and skyrocketing ferry fares have landed squarely on Clark’s desk, and need to be dealt with. As if all of this was not enough, we also have the public relations disaster of school boards having to spend money for carbon offsets rather than on services and materials in classrooms — another Campbell legacy. The same goes for hospitals. To his credit, Campbell disappeared from public view in apparent recognition that his continuing presence would serve as a political distraction as a new premier tries to rebuild the B.C. Liberal brand. Somehow, Campbell loyalists did not recognize he is still a potent and controversial political ¿gure. They could have taken a hint when they saw the strong negative reaction from the government’s political opponents to his appointment as Canadian High Commissioner to Britain. But, here we are today, immersed in yet another

political ¿restorm focused on Gordon Campbell — the fact he is being awarded the Order of B.C. Here he is again, crowding centre stage when Clark is about to unfold her government’s major economic initiatives and put her own stamp on the administration. All the political polling indicates Clark remains a popular leader but the B.C. Liberal brand lags behind. With friends like these, Campbell loyalists would better serve their colleagues in government by leaving history to decide the assessment of the former premier. If they are not careful, Campbell’s many accomplishments will be eclipsed by the roar of controversy. And that will be his legacy. Patrick Hrushowy writes every Friday in the News Leader Pictorial.

YOUR TURN

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A11

Does former premier Gordon Campbell deserve to get the Order of B.C.? “God no. He screwed us with the HST and he got caught drinking and driving. Let’s get a real hero out there.”

“Campbell should get it. He’s a Liberal and he got the NDP out.”

If we’re NIMBYs, then it’s certainly a big backyard

Am I the only one feeling some Dayliner nostalgia?

Dear editor Is anyone missing the Dayliner passing through Duncan? I used to time my morning walk in order to see and hear the Dayliner as it made its way through town. I miss it and yes, some days we’d wave to passengers who usually waved back in return. We wondered who they were and where they were from. When our children were young we’d sometimes have a train ride from Duncan to Chemainus as part of a birthday treat. It was fun and a ¿rst for many children. When I was young we always waved as the passenger train passed through the town I grew up in. In those days it was the CPR. There’s something compelling about a train. It helped having family members who worked with the railroad. We have a wonderful train station in Duncan and how sad it’s no longer in use as a station. It was always interesting to watch arrivals and departures. Now I’m left standing at the crossroads, looking down the track at overgrown weeds and the wooden track disintegrating as it leads towards the train bridge. R. Pearce Duncan

Trespassing dirt bikes remain a problem on local trails

Dear editor A year ago you were kind enough to publish an article about a mishap I had with my horse on the trail near Skutz Falls. It involved two youths on dirt bikes who should not have been on the trail at all. I am glad to report the number of dirt bikes on the trail has decreased. Unfortunately they have not ceased altogether. Recently I met a dirt bike at almost the same place as last year. It’s a white bike with black. Three times I said “stop the bike.” No doubt he could not hear me above the noise of his bike, as he continued toward me. He did ¿nally stop and turned round once my horse was already dancing a jig in the middle of the trail. I later met a couple on bicycles that kindly stopped to let me by. I mentioned the dirt bike and they said he had roared past them spraying them with gravel. It seems this hooligan is not just ignorant around horses but the public in general. Nancy Hendry Skutz Falls

M

Lack of municipal action on invasive species is troubling

Dear editor Considering North Cowichan’s mayor has recently been quoted as to how well the municipal forest is being managed, I ¿nd it disappointing that invasive species removal as a result of logging operations in Stoney Hill is left for the residents to work on. Is there no budget in place to deal with this issue? Considering the revenue generated from clearcut logging in Stoney Hill it is a shame the inÀux of invasive species is not being dealt with. This is yet another example as to why the present logging practices of North Cowichan should be reconsidered. Perhaps the citizens who own this forest should speak up to council about the matter. Jeffrey Birkin Stoney Hill

Time for North Cowichan critics to put up or shut up at the polls

Dear editor In her ruling in the Chemainus Wells dispute, Justice Wedge clearly places responsibility for consultation on the Crown, i.e. with the DFO and the MOE through the Environmental Assessment Of¿ce. She clearly shows the EAO had meetings that excluded the Halalt and that it had signi¿cant reports it withheld from the Halalt, including one it had for nearly two years and only gave to the Halalt after the certi¿cate was issued. On the other hand the municipality adjusted its proposals twice in the proceedings to minimize the scope of the project. Holding to the basics of the project is not a failure to consult. These people don’t seem to get it. It’s the

So you want a letter published? Here are some tips: Keep it short — 300 words or less; Keep it local — letters raised in response to issues raised in our pages get top priority; Keep it clean — attack the issue, not the individual. You must include your full name, home community and a phone number where we can reach you during office hours. Addresses and phone numbers will not be published. Letters will be edited for clarity, grammar, length and good taste. Name-withheld letters will not be published. We receive more letters than we have space for. Publication is not guaranteed.

same tired song. They need to realize an ounce of sugar goes a lot further than a tonne of salt. They speak as if they speak for all Chemainus residents when clearly they do not. Frequent critic Mark Kiemele is known to be a consultant to First Nations. Both he and Kathy Wachs are involved in the CRA, which also would have folks believe it speaks for all residents of Chemainus. It does not. This constant diatribe against staff and elected of¿cials has to end. If these people are so certain of their position they should get on the ballot in November and sell their ideas to the electorate better than they did in 2008. Then we will see how effective they are in running North Cowichan and advancing the interests of Chemainus. Alex Currie Chemainus

I’m glad to see they are protecting democracy from the rabble

Dear editor It is good to see Her Chair-ship is to campaign again. Now area ratepayers may get the answers to questions ignored or prohibited at the CVRD meetings, especially with the revised public conduct rules. Democracy has been so precious it has been kept under lock and key lest it run rampant among common taxpayers. Dee Shoolingin Duncan

r. Siska’s Aug. 31 guest comment on the ECO Depot requires a response. He apparently does not understand we have the right to legally protest and to use the courts and provincial ombudsperson. Both institutions do not deal with frivolous issues. Two investigations of the CVRD by the ombudsperson’s of¿ce are underway. Two legal actions against the CVRD on waste management have begun. We strongly resent the implication by Mr. Siska and CVRD chairwoman Gerry Giles that we had anything to do with those ugly incidents involving garbage and oil being placed on Giles’ property. I wrote to Mrs. Giles assuring her we were not involved. We do not condone any such childish behaviour. Was the driver of the blue pick-up truck seen stealing our signs also responsible for the garbage on Giles property? Mr. Siska, claims we are against recycling and waste reduction. He is wrong. We have always been supportive of the CVRD’s recycling and waste reduction initiatives provided they are done in appropriately zoned locations. He believes the ECO Depot site will be a model recycling facility. The proposed depot is designed as a solid waste, garbage, and recycle transfer station. Items such as asphalt, drywall, batteries, gas and oil, antifreeze, pesticides, garbage, etc. will be collected there and then transferred elsewhere. CVRD’s Bob MacDonald’s statement “This is going to be a mini-Bings Creek facility,” makes that clear. As for Cameron-Taggart Road, both the road and the intersection at Cameron-Taggart and Shawnigan Lake Road will require, at signi¿cant cost to the taxpayers, safety improvements to meet Ministry of Transportation standards. While this site may be located centrally, it is not a convenient location. Will those who live east of the Trans-Canada Highway or in Mill Bay ¿nd the location convenient? As for our community support we have more than 1,400 signatures on our petition, from registered property owners, stating our objections to the CVRD’s plan to put the ECO Depot where the zoning does not permit. Proof of our widespread community support is evident during our sign brigade activities and from the fact we have raised enough money to challenge the CVRD in the Supreme Court. The real issue is the zoning in Area B (Shawnigan Lake) which does not permit waste management. The CVRD’s position is that it has the right to override the zoning bylaw. We disagree and have asked the Supreme Court of British Columbia for advice on the law. Fifteen months ago the CVRD bought the site; why then is the ECO Depot not up and running? Joseph Gollner is a member of the CT Group working in opposition to the proposed South Cowichan ECO Depot

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A13

KidSport Cowichan all about giving kids a chance to play Tip off: Help out there to cover the cost of registration Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

K

idSport Cowichan is still in its infancy, but growing pains aren’t a part of its upbringing. The main mission of the non-pro¿t organization has more to do with making sure people in need know about available funds to cover registration costs for kids who might otherwise be unable to play sports. The organization was founded in May of 2010 but only started dispersing funds earlier this year. “We said we needed to make sure we were sustainable before we started handing out money,’’ said chairwoman Deb Savory. A variety of sources helped the organization attain ¿nancial stability, including one-time grants. Running the silent auction at last year’s North Cowichan-Duncan Don Bodger Sports Wall of Fame ceremony brought in Chad Gurski of Valley Floors Carpet One and KidSport Cowichan chair Deb Savory display $4,000. The organization will run another silent a Canuck jersey signed by Orland Kurtenbach that will be among the silent auction items auction as a fundraiser at this year’s inducup for grabs at the North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall of Fame induction, Oct. 15.

tion ceremony Oct. 15 at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club. Various groups have taken on fundraisers and turned over a portion of the proceeds to KidSport Cowichan. Golf tournaments are the usual avenue for fundraisers, including one by Saunders Subaru of Victoria and another at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of B.C. that yielded $3,800 for the organization. Audie Williams, who runs the Davey Derby in Port Renfrew, provided a grant to KidSport and smaller donations, such as a recent used book sale at the Royal Bank, have given the organization’s coffers a boost. Chad Gurski of Valley Floors Carpet One is donating a percentage of sales in September to KidSport. This month was chosen for a very speci¿c reason. “A lot of sports groups and clubs start up this time of year,’’ said Gurski. “We’re really looking at avenues where groups take up fundraising and we support them — be it signage or volunteers, things like that,’’ said Savory. “Teams are trying to fundraise as well. It’s not up to us to get into the hot dog sales, that kind of stuff. It takes a bit away

from what local sports associations and teams are trying to do.’’ KidSport has already assisted 70 children and nine organizations and handed out nearly $12,000 in just ¿ve months. Savory said the aim for the ¿rst year is $20,000. Application forms are straightforward, she added. Information is on the organization’s web site, www.kidsportcowichan. com. “We don’t ask to see tax returns or anything like that,’’ said Savory. “That’s not our mandate.’’ It’s the grateful replies from the families make it all worthwhile to Savory. “That’s my full-time volunteer job,’’ she said. “There’s some great not-for-pro¿t organizations that do great work and we’re another one that will ¿t in. Sport is just one avenue if things aren’t so great at home. There’s an opportunity for them.’’ Funding is provided up to $200 at the moment, but “we’ll revisit that,’’ Savory said, to make sure it’s in keeping with rising costs. KidSport allocates funding on a monthly basis. “The parents need to get the application in before the season starts,’’ stressed Savory. “Financial reasons shouldn’t be a reason why kids aren’t playing now.’’

As Fall approaches, thoughts turn to colds and how to prevent or shorten them. Zinc supplements are commonly suggested to help but shouldn’t be taken for more than a week or so. Too much zinc can rob our bodies of copper and can cause other problems. See our pharmacists for advice. The message about the dangers of high blood pressure is getting through to Canadians. We have one of the lowest average blood pressures in the world and because of this, deaths from heart attacks are greatly reduced. The “normal” blood pressure used to be 120/80. Now, doctors are preferring 115/75 as the goal. To combat obesity in American society, the U.S. government has come up with a better way to visualize food quantities. One cup equals the size of a baseball. One serving is the size of a deck of cards. A computer mouse equals a medium potato while

one pancake is the size of a CD. These commonplaced items hopefully will help people reduce their food intake and lose weight. New drugs are often discovered from natural products. An Asian tropical plant, the pinwheel flower, contains conolidine, a natural pain-reliever. Unfortunately the shrub contains so little of the drug that scientists have synthesized the same chemical in the lab. It represents a whole new class of pain-killers and shows much promise in the future treatment of intense pain. If it’s new, we’ll know about it. Keeping up to date in our profession is our #1 goal.

From the hallowed halls of the past Been there before: Cow High looking for input into series of alumni profiles News Leader Pictorial

A

blast from the Warm Land’s past is planned by Cowichan Secondary School principal Charlie Coleman. Standing beside framed photos of hundreds of CSS grads, Coleman wants to hear about their post-graduate lives through a series of Alumni Pro¿les to be posted on the school’s website, and perhaps elsewhere. “I’d like as many pro¿les as possible — I’ve got a dozen or two already started,” the class of ’83 grad said. He likened the alumni-pro¿le question-andanswer format to the News Leader Pictorial’s popular Valley People feature. Questions for grads are simple: year of graduating class, current career, hobbies and life experiences, and words of advice for current students. A photo is also requested. “We hope to have the ¿rst ones on the website

this fall, then we hope it becomes self-perpetuating. “With 60 years worth of grads, lots of people have done lots of interesting things. “We want a real cross-section, not just the rich and famous,” stressed Coleman. “We want people who’ve been successful and who contribute to our community in various ways — the arts, athletics, business. “We’ve produced a couple of MLAs, business people, doctors, lawyers, NHL players — the list is endless.” He saw Cow High’s Alumni Pro¿les as a nice way to acknowledge folks who’ve gone through the school in the past six decades. “We want to show kids the kinds of things alumni have done in life after high school, and how to contribute to their community. “It’ll be so inspiring for our kids to see who came from Cow High, and this may cause them to say ‘I can do something like that.’” Cow High opened in 1950, with its ¿rst grad

DATELINE: COWICHAN

After a year’s training here, the 62nd Field Battery left for Shilo camp, Manitoba. The City of Duncan and the North Cowichan Municipality combined to give each man 50 cigarettes before they left by special train.

by Ann Andersen

1940: bumps

South Cowichan’s ďŹ rst junior tennis tournament attracted 26 people. The young athletes were divided into two zones. North zone winners Christopher Stead and Sophie Lloyd beat Diana Fox and Therese Miller, south zone 6-2 in a ďŹ nal play-off.

Three-dozen Duncan businessmen on a trip to the Youbou mill praised its speed and efďŹ ciency but said something had to be done about the nine-mile road between Lake Cowichan and the mill described as “narrow, twisty, bumpy and dusty.â€?

arlier this week, about 8,000 Cowichan students headed back to local public schools. They will learn in 18 elementary, four middle and four secondary schools; three alternate programs; four open learning programs; and one adult education centre. Anyone interested in the valley will know that school enrolment has been dropping since 1997, just as it did in September 1940. Then, as The Second World War got underway, families of enlisted men left to be closer to their loved ones. At Duncan elementary school with principal Mr. H. E. Blanchard, 410 students were enrolled with an average of 38 students per class in the intermediate grades. Primary classes were smaller: 34 and 28. At York Road one-room school Miss E. Stoddart taught a combined grade one and two class of 37. At Duncan high school and junior high school — then near Duncan elementary — 309 students were taught by 10 teachers led by principal Mr. R. Hodgson. It’s interesting to note the 66 students in Grade 7; only 24 in Grade 12; and 11 in Grade 13 senior matriculation. In Chemainus, 256 students were enrolled in grades one to eight. Chemainus sent its 70 senior students to Ladysmith.

Thrifty Foods considering a return to plastic bags in Cowichan In the bag: Firm asking its customers what they think about a switch back

lastic shopping bags haven’t returned to Cowichan’s two Thrifty Foods stores — yet. But the 26-store grocery chain — with branches in Mill Bay and Duncan — has returned plastic bags to three of its mainland branches. Now management wants Cowichanians’ comments about bringing plastic sacks back here, spokeswoman Erin Kelly said. “Tell us what you think. It’s an information-gathering period for the next three months.” After Oct. 31, Thrifty will consider its next move after returning plastic bags to stores

in Coquitlam, North Vancouver and Abbottsford due to customer demand. Thrifty removed plastic bags from its checkouts in spring 2009 while offering paper bags plus recycling for both types of sacks. Thrifty’s has recycled 12.5 million bags at its 26 stores since 2010. Kelly had no ¿gures about the ¿rm’s Cowichan stores. The chain’s recycled plastic bags were used to make home decking, she explained. But Thrifty brass would rather not hand out any sacks that are environmentally costly to make, buy and recycle. “We prefer the reusable bag,” Kelly said of durable cloth grocery bags. “I have 10 in my trunk.”

Stores also display cloth-bag reminder signs. Some competing chains offer compostible bags made of rice or other materials, while Thrifty’s plastic bags are made from petroleum oil. Thrifty consumer-demand studies show plastic sacks stand up better than paper. “Our paper bags are durable but there’s problems with inclement weather and issues with sogginess. “A paper bag without a handle is no good. — plastic bags are about convenience.” That’s why Thrifty stores are Peter W.

IF A TREE KNOCKS DOWN A POWER LINE, YOUR SMART METER WILL CALL FOR HELP FASTER THAN YOU CAN READ THIS. BC Hydro will be changing the old power meters on homes in BC to new smart meters. In the event of a power outage today, you need to let BC Hydro know there’s a problem. Unlike your current meter, smart

meters will report a power outage immediately, so we can restore your power faster. It’s all part of the plan to renew BC’s electrical systems, to ensure clean, reliable power for generations to come.

f you timed it right, you might have seen them roll through. Two gnarled brothers in the blues, perched behind the wheel of gigantic Lincoln Town Car with a speaker mounted on the roof, headed up the TCH and over the Hump to Port Alberni for tonight’s gig. Doc MacLean, a self-proclaimed vagabond from the dark side of the blues highway, and Big Dave McLean, the man Colin James called Canada’s great undiscovered bluesman, are about to launch a nine-month Canadian tour that will bring them from coast to coast coast. Stop three is Sunday in Duncan. The Bad Boy Blues acoustic tour will bring a combined 80 years of blues experience, stories, and good humour to the stage. “Expect a trail of genuine, white stripe, satin tour jackets to be left across the country,” a post on Doc’s blog states. “And expect the real deal from two acknowledged masters in their prime.” Doc is a traveller, a collector and teller of songs and stories— a songster in the blues tradition that Blues Revue magazine called “the Prince of Darkness.” Prairie-based Big Dave is a disciple of the legendary Muddy Waters who has dedicated a lifetime to his guitar and his art.

Doc MacLean, left, Big Dave McLean According to the promotional material, the tour is rooted in the blues tradition. It’s motto: “no venue too big or too small, no place too forsaken.” “It’s not about fancy buses and slick, new guitars. It’s Doc and Big Dave driving through town to promote the show. It’s the guys hauling in their own gear. “It’s a lifetime of songs and stories delivered by two veteran bluesmen who have been there and done it all.” Your ticket What: Doc MacLean and Big Dave McLean When: 8 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11 Where: Duncan Garage Showroom, 330 Duncan Street.

Downtown Duncan is Delicious! By Arno Featherstone As you take a moment to consider all the amazing wineries, farms and eateries the Cowichan Valley has to offer for this 7th Annual Wine and Culinary Festival and plan your route accordingly, be sure to include Downtown Duncan in your travels. Amongst the banks, professional of¿ces and clothing stores are nestled galleries, eateries and bookstores that will surely impress the true gourmand and casual grazer alike. You will ¿nd many of the eateries shopping for their menu items at our local Farmer’s Market here in City Square or at the Community Farm Store where fresh local produce and pride of community is in abundance. Those of us who have chosen to live in this Valley feel a very special connection to the land and to our community. It isn’t every community that bene¿ts from such abundance and when a moment arrives to celebrate that fact, it’s a moment to savor and experience to its fullest effect. Continued on page 21

F&M explored in Duncan Garage Showroom

ON STAGE

F&M is built around Edmonton-based songwriters Rebecca and Ryan Anderson. During the past four years and three albums, the couple and an evolving cast of bandmates have developed a signature sound at the crossroads of folk, pop, and epic rock that is stubbornly its own thing, drawing on such a rich history of cross-

genre influences and the flickering contours of modern adulthood. They return to Duncan tomorrow with special guests Mike Angus and Trainsleeper, 8 p.m., Duncan Garage Showroom, 330 Duncan Street. Tickets are $10 advance, $12 door. Call 250-748-7246.

New book inspired by the old and sour Meet Suzie: One hundredyear-old dough keeps local author cooking Peter W. Rusland

all Cowichan author Kathy Sager a sourdough. That’s what former valley poet Robert Service named Klondike folks who baked uniquely Canadian breads and other foods from a Àour-based blend of ingredients. Cowichanians can learn all about sourdough — then taste some — as Sager and Czech-born illustrator Eliska Liska launch their 44-page rhyming-prose book for all ages called Suzie’s Sourdough Circus next week in Duncan. “Working with children inspired me to write this book,” Sager said of her ¿rst book. Circus is populated by artist Liska’s troupe of yellow-colour sourdough performers and their high jinks while blowing bubbles to make young Suzie’s bread rise. Mom and Dad can r the tale to their read little one, then Àip to the back of the book to pick p out at a sourdough recipe for Àapjacks, r b bannock and more to cook together, just like Suzie and her dad did Kathy Sager: keeps in the story. The bread that her starter pure inspired Sager’s story is not made from some everyday dough. Her sourdough ‘starter’ reaches back a century to a hunk of original sourdough made during the Gold Rush. Folks buying books at her reading in Ten Old Books will get their own sourdough starter, and try fresh goods made from Sager’s prized starter

Island showcase hopes to stop the hate The concert of finalists in the Imagine a World Without Hate song and spoken word poetry contest, which had been scheduled for Aug. 27 in Courtenay, has been moved to Cowichan. It will now be held tonight at the Duncan Garage Showroom. “It is disappointing to us,” said Bruce Curtis, manager of the project, “but we had considerably more entries than we were expecting.” He explained that the contest’s success meant much more work for the professional judges’ panel, and the turnaround between contest closing on late Tuesday and a concert on Saturday was just too short. The quality of the entries is extremely high and the variety of approaches taken and messages developed will surprise and amaze when the poems and songs are performed at the finalists’ concert. There will also be an opportunity for the audience present to have their input into the judges’ final decisions. The evening event and new venue in Duncan will allow for live streaming over the Internet when the concert occurs. Information will be printed as soon as arrangements have been confirmed. The contest is part of the Diversity Caravan project this summer. Caravan staff have been visiting community events and festivals throughout the Vancouver Island and Sunshine Coast area, promoting a wider, more diverse and inclusive community. The project is part of the Organizing Against Racism and Hate Regional Network. The network includes the seven communities in this region that have completed a Critical Incident Response Protocol and are continuing to engage in educational work around the issues of racism, homophobia and hate crime. The Diversity Caravan’s Imagine a World Without Hate song and spoken word poetry finalists perform, 7 p.m. in the Showroom. Suggested donation: $5-10. Call 250-597-7875 for further info.

Q May 29, 2004 Sept 4, 2011. With much grief & sorrow we would like to announce the passing of our beloved pet and best friend. He came down with a sudden and unexpected illness and had to be placed in heaven. Just too soon. Being a rescue pup we adopted him at 4 months and he has never had such a wonderful and great life. He lived for the long hikes up the mountains and the crunching of the baby crabs on the beach. He had lots of friends in Crofton and lots of people knew him. He will be so sadly missed. Love Mom & Dad xoxo Lloyd and Holly Kelly

MAPLE BAY FIRE HALL

MEMBERSHIP

The North Cowichan Fire Department’s Maple Bay Fire Hall is accepting applications for Paid on Call positions. Applicants must be a minimum of 19 years old. Application information may be obtained at the Maple Bay Fire Hall on Thursday evenings between 6:30 and 9:00 pm. or Sunday mornings between 9:00 and 11:00 am. A message can also be left on the Maple Bay non-emergency line at 250-748-8654 in Fire Chief’s mail box.

ltimate is quite literally the ultimate game for people of all sports backgrounds. Experienced players and newcomers trying to get the hang of it were on the ¿eld at the Cowichan Sportsplex Sunday for the ¿fth-annual Duncan Huck-Up tournament. Basketball and soccer players catch onto the game quickly. There are some elements of football with the pull at the beginning — like a kickoff — and the end zones where teams try to reach to score. Those with different specialty sports pick up the skills pretty well just through pure athleticism that goes a long way, too. Best of all, the social aspects of the sport are appealing to many looking for an alternate recreational choice. The complete package was brought together at the tournament with players from all over the island attending. It’s called a hat tournament where players were made up into four teams purely at random. “Everyone signs up, they give a skill level and we sort the teams to make them even,’’ said Mike Cloutier, spokesman for the organizing team. “It gives people a chance to play with people they’ve never played with before.’’ Three females had to be among the seven team members on the ¿eld on each side. “It is a good co-ed sport,’’ said Cloutier, who’s a newcomer to the area from Ontario. “You can still be competitive and fun at the same time.’’ Other ultimate hat tournaments are held on Cortes Island and in Parksville and Nanaimo. For those so inclined, team

It’s really physical and really fun. It requires more energy and stamina than the average game.’’ Cowichan Ultimate meets Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. at the Sportsplex. During September, the team will be on the ¿eld hockey turf. Drop-ins are always welcome.

Football roundup: Opening of the season brings optimism at all levels Don Bodger

nother football season is off the ground, with Cowichan Bulldogs teams in action in three divisions. The Midget Bulldogs were in Victoria Labour Day and lost their Vancouver Mainland Football League opener to Victoria 18-6. “Unfortunately, our lack of execution and untimely penalties hampered us on both offense and defence,’’ noted head coach Joe Lobo. “As in all sports, mistakes were our downfall as we gave up ¿eld position to the defending B.C. champions and we gave up two majors in the second half to lose the game.’’ The ¿rst half ended in a 6-6 tie. Cowichan ¿elded a team of 30 players, the largest in ¿ve years. “It certainly was a treat for our players to be able to play one position and have enough energy to last the whole game,’’ Lobo observed. “We have been used to playing ironman ball in the past three years. This was new territory for us.’’ The lone Cowichan touchdown came on a 45-yard run by Blake Torok-Both. Excellent blocking was provided by senior linemen Keelan Deigh, Patrick Warren, Brandon Atkinson and rookie Eric Maslen.

Duncan 709-8886

Don Bodger

Doin’ the twist helps Cowichan Peewee Bulldogs’ Damian Jones to turn away from a Victoria Hitmen tackler in the backÄeld. Jones was a standout for the Bulldogs along with James Price and Carter Price, who scored the team’s lone touchdown. Many rookies contributed in the game. Quarterback Ryan MacDonald ran a complicated offense in the transition from running back while Adam Marchetti, Kamen Stewart and defensive backs R.J. Piche, Nico Ceska, Cory Lewis and Brandon Nyberg were all solid. Meanwhile, the Cowichan Bantam Bulldogs also opened their season in Victoria and posted a 27-7 win. “We struggled offensively in the ¿rst half,’’ noted coach Doug Williams. Drayson Price scored the lone TD and Darian Slater converted as Cowichan went into the break with a 7-0 lead. “The offense started to move the ball better in the second half,’’ Williams pointed out. Price scored his second TD and then Victoria switched up its game

to run an Auburn University style offense. “It took us by surprise and they were able to march the ball and score their only TD on a dive to former Cowichan Bulldog Matt Pastro,’’ Williams indicated. But Eric Williams restored order for Cowichan, running the ensuing kickoff back 87 yards for a TD. Cowichan took the wind out of the Spartans’ offense and scored its ¿nal TD on a slot reverse to Eric Williams that went 45 yards. The defence played great, Doug Williams indicated. Last year’s defensive line of Brock Gowanlock, Clayton Key and Landon Conville moved to the linebacking positions. Price went to running back behind lead blocker Bobby MacWatt while Brandon St. Clair returned to safety after missing last season

with a broken arm. Newcomers Ryan Jackson and Curtis Gronnestad held strong on the defensive line, with Slater and Travis McDonald as the base. Andrew Ketola returned to halfback and Riley Caljouw moved from offense to corner. Eddy Walt, Garion Ferguson and Trysten Kynaston-Wong rotated at the other back positions. The Cowichan Peewee Bulldogs turned in a gritty effort during an opening 41-6 loss to the powerful Victoria Hitmen at McAdam Park. “They didn’t give up the whole game,’’ said Cowichan coach Trent Jones. “That’s what I was impressed with. “In the second half, we were able to move the ball quite good. It’s a slow start to the season just because of summer vacation. I expect great things from the team this season.’’

dam Benning didn’t just beat his personal best run total. He shattered it. Benning, 33, a native of Sydney, Australia provided Cowichan with an amazing 163 not out during a Victoria and District Cricket Association victory at Metchosin Saturday. When asked about his previous best, Benning immediately recalled the time he scored 116. “Players remember stuff like that,’’ he said. “It’s a game of stats.’’ Benning ¿rst took up cricket as a teenager, but had been out of the game for several years before coming to Canada. He played three years in Vancouver, went back to Australia for a year and then returned to live in Victoria and joined the Cowichan cricket team in 2005. Benning was the driving force behind the ¿rst wicket stand on his record-setting day with fellow opener Rick Fletcher, who had 53 against the undermanned opposition. “I get to 100 probably once a season,’’ said Benning. “Usually when I get to 100, I’m so tired I lose concentration.’’ That wasn’t a problem this time. “I kept my concentration long enough to stay in there,’’ said Benning. Subsequent batsmen scored freely and quickly after the sound start. Nagy Thomas, with 25, and 39 not out by Brent Johns helped run Cowichan’s total to a massive 322 for four in the allotted 45 overs. That was the team’s highest total in the last 10 years. Metchosin faced an impossible task but its trio of Kiwis — Blair Boardman (50), Jamie O’Brien (38) and Paul Wilson (35) — kept the game going well into the early evening before the innings came to an end at 172 after 36 overs. Johns had the best bowling ¿gures for Cowichan, taking ¿ve wickets for 16 runs. Cowichan plays Carico in the semi¿nal playoffs Sunday at Beacon Hill Park in Victoria. “On paper, we’re probably the second strongest team in the league,’’ said Benning. Cowichan ¿nished third in the league and Carico was second behind ¿rst-place United Victoria. But Cowichan has fared well against Carico and beaten United this season. “I think we’re con¿dent going into the playoffs,’’ said Benning. “We’ve got a good sound team. We get along on and off the ¿eld. That helps a lot.’’

There’s no luck involved. It’s pure skill. Youbou resident Jerry Melissa keeps racking up the ringers and the championships. The longtime horseshoe pitching sensation is again the provincial champion in his class. Melissa defeated all his competitors last

weekend to claim the title. It was the fourth time this summer Melissa has emerged victorious from a tournament. He also won the B flight in the Canadian horseshoe championships held in Blainville, Quebec earlier this month. Melissa has one more tournament remaining this season.

Ingram’s return brings high expectations Back home again: “I’d say we’ve got a real good mix of everything,’’ he observes Don Bodger

J

im Ingram’s hockey coaching career has gone full circle. Ingram grew up in nearby Ladysmith and caught on in the B.C. Hockey League as an assistant to Scott Robinson with the Cowichan Valley Capitals in 2003. After stints as the head man in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League with the Kerry Park Islanders and the BCHL Trail Smoke Eaters, he’s back with the Caps as general manager and associate coach alongside Dale Purinton. “Junior hockey is a lot of fun,’’ said Ingram, who turned 40 on May 31. He’s undeterred by the frustration of trying to move players who haven’t wanted to play here. Ingram went through that situation many years ago while playing for a powerhouse BCHL team in New Westminster. Unlike many of today’s players who balk at a trade, however, Ingram readily reported after being dealt to Merritt. “I didn’t even bat an eye at it,’’ he said. “I spent the next two seasons there and loved it.’’ Ingram chalks up all the kerfufÀe over player demands today to changing times. “Kids are starting to dictate where they will or will not go,’’ he conceded. “These are the type of kids we don’t want here, for sure. “I don’t understand not wanting to play junior hockey and get the best opportunity for a scholarship or whatever.’’

Ingram came on board with the Caps in mid-April and relished the chance to work under owner Stew Gordon again. At the same time, he was pleased with his four seasons in Trail. “This was something that came up very, very quickly and I acted as quickly as I could,’’ Ingram said. “I love it in Trail. I think we made that pretty clear when this came down.’’ In fact, Ingram’s wife Dee obtained a great job in Trail and has stayed behind there for the time being with their kids Emma, who turns 13 in November, and twins Marty and Nate, who will be 10 in November. “Right now, it’s a bit of a tough go,’’ said Ingram of his fragmented family life. “We’ve done it before and we knew this day would come when we went to Trail. There may be a change that required a move and here we are.’’ Normally, it’s a ¿ring that leads to such a change in scenery but Ingram saw the Capitals’ job as an opportunity he couldn’t pass up. “I left for my reasons,’’ he said. Moving disgruntled players Travis St. Denis, Brandon Tanev and Nick Amies consumed much of Ingram’s time during the off-season. “I had this summer more guys that didn’t want to come here than I had in four years in Trail,’’ he conceded. “I want kids that de¿nitely want to wear the Capitals’ uniform.’’ To make up for those jumping ship, “we have to make sure we do a good job of recruiting and scouting,’’ said Ingram. He also thinks it might be high time for the BCHL to have protected lists

for teams. Williams Lake and Quesnel are already gone from the league partly because attracting players to either city was an impossible task and the BCHL can ill afford to lose any more franchises. “All major junior leagues have drafts and protected lists,’’ said Ingram. “I don’t have the blueprint how that draft or protected list looks. “You’re only as strong as your weakest franchise. I think it’s important we do look at our league and decide which direction we want to go.’’ Trail is constantly on the bubble and Ingram knows that ¿rst-hand. “I’ve seen how hard the board works to keep it there.’’ Ingram added the BCHL has a good working relationship with the Western Hockey League, but its real battle — if you want to call it that — is with the United States Hockey League. Off-season changes have included going to a 21-man roster from 23, requiring Ingram to take the appropriate action. “We’re going to have strong af¿liate relationships,’’ he said. The switch to a top-four playoff format in each conference is proving controversial. “That one bafÀed me,’’ said Ingram. He’s optimistic of a good season. “This is a tremendous spot to play,’’ Ingram said. “We’ve got to get everybody on the ship here and pulling in the same direction. “It’s been great working with Dale. We’ve been super honest with each other. “We work off each other. There hasn’t been an awkward moment.’’

Don Bodger

Occupying a desk in the Cowichan Valley Capitals’ coaches’ ofÄce is a comfortable place for Jim Ingram. “It’s been awesome coming back,’’ he said. “But I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed it in the Kootenays. I’m not running from anything.’’
