Stunned community mourns cheerful, family-Ärst teen Obituary: Recent Brentwood grad Obituary: killed after car rolls down Shawnigan Lake embankment Peter W. Rusland

F

amily was ¿rst in Victor David Anderson’s life. Then came friends, especially those on Brentwood College’s basketball team that scored third place in B.C. last year. Anderson’s number-11 shirt is being benched by coach Blake Gage to honour the point guard

who died Thursday in a single-vehicle accident along Shawingan Lake Road. Anderson graduated from Brentwood last month. He was 18. “He’ll de¿nitely be the last guy to wear number 11 as long as I’m here,” said Gage who coached the six-footer in Grades 11 and 12. “He was just a remarkably resilient, cheerful and caring young man; a good player and a terri¿c teammate.” Friends, teachers and family are expected to pack St. Edward’s Catholic Church in Maple Bay for tomorrow’s service celebrating Anderson’s short life. It ended in the early hours of July 7 when the family’s Toyota Corolla left the road, hit a tree, then plunged down a 10-foot embankment

near Filgate Road, police say. Parents Rachel and Egils Anderson thanked the driver of a convertible for saving them the aguish of searching for their boy. The driver’s hat Àew off Thursday afternoon, and he noticed the Corolla after pulling over to get his hat. The Andersons believed Victor was tired and fell asleep at the wheel while headed home after visiting friends. “We think he wanted to get home for his mom’s birthday, and didn’t realize how tired he was,” Egils said of the trip to Cobble Hill from Shawnigan Lake. The family knew nothing of Anderson’s death until being called by police Thursday afternoon — they thought he’d stayed with his pals.

Facebook tributes show the gregarious Anderson was well-loved and respected by many. Mom and dad say they are mourning a regular kid who put family ¿rst and gave his best every day. “He was a normal kid,” Rachel said. “Everywhere Victor went, he brought comfort, joy, and assurance life was good. “We were the most important thing in his life, and whatever he took into his community, he did ¿rst with us.” Anderson appeared in Brentwood’s productions of Carousel, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. He worked especially hard at basketball, noted Gage. more on page 9

UP FRONT

Truck stolen and set ablaze in Cowichan Lake-area woods A recent theft/arsonist attack is boggling local RCMP. A vehicle was stolen from Lake Cowichan’s Lakeview Park Campground day use lot, then lit on fire a few hours later down the nearby Fairservice Mainline logging road, during the early morning hours of Tuesday, July 5. “I can’t imagine the thought process of someone lighting a fire to a vehicle in the forest, nearby

the town. It boggles my mind,” Lake Cowichan RCMP Sgt. Dave Voller said. “It is alarming. RCMP are still investigating the incident, and looking into where the vehicle accessed the road. With the main entrance locked, the thief must have entered from another location. The fire itself caused quite a stir on the TimberWest property, Coastal Fire Centre fire information officer Margie Drysdale said.

A 20-unit team from Port Alberni, a five-person initial attack team from Cobble Hill, and five TimberWest firefighters convened on-site after being called in at about 4:30 a.m. The continued blaze throughout the day, reaching about an acre in size. “It’s actually still on patrol,” Drysdale said, Friday, July 8. “They’ll check up until they’re absolutely sure it’s not still going on.”

orget long-time local lawyer, or former Duncan mayor. Mike Coleman’s new claim-to-fame may be ‘The Last Spike Guy.’ Coleman’s name was drawn as the winner of the Kinsol Trestle last spike contest. That means he will be the ¿rst to cross the re-opened, re-vamped trestle come July 28 — the date set for the grand re-opening celebration bash. “I was delighted really,” Coleman said Tuesday. “I could see the humour in it and I have been getting a lot of comments from people saying it’s ‘too funny.’” The long-time Cowichanian won South Cowichan Rotary’s lottery to drive the last spike on re-opening day as well as bragging rights to be the ¿rst to cross the revamped structure. His two grandkids, two-year-old twins Grace and Blake, will be tagging along with him come celebration day, “depending on their napping schedule,” Coleman said. A huge trestle supporter, Coleman was tickled with the opportunity. “As my son Jamie reminded me, I was around for the driving of the ‘original’ last spike of the trestle. It’s going to be an extra special day, and

Former Duncan mayor and long-time local lawyer Mike Coleman will be the Ärst to cross the re-opened Kinsol Trestle July 28 with his grandkids, two-year-old Grace and Blake. one that I know we’ll all remember.” The CVRD is inviting Cowichan to join the celebration Thursday, July 28 at 11 a.m. “It feels absolutely wonderful,” a happy-sounding Cowichan Valley Regional District chairwoman Gerry Giles said Tuesday morning. “When I ¿rst got on the board, the mantra of the regional district then was to tear down the Kinsol Trestle, and after two or three votes, the community came forward and said, ‘No, we don’t want you to tear it down and we’re quite prepared to support you moving it forward, but as a restoration, and not tearing it down and building a replica.” Giles stresses the importance of sav-

ing historical structures. “When people go out to the Kinsol Trestle, I always ask them to remind themselves this was built in the early 1900s without the heavy-duty cranes and equipment we have now. So it’s manpower, blood, sweat and tears, and somebody’s ability to dream and then the necessary impetus to make the dream come true.” The family-friendly event, showcasing the tallest wooden rail trestle in Canada, or what the CVRD’s now calling “Jewel in the Crown” of the Cowichan Valley Trail will include refreshments, entertainment, information booths and more. The $7.4-million restoration project included replacing unsound timber,

reinforcing 17 structural piers, and ¿nishing a new 614-foot walkway atop the structure for hikers, cyclists and equestrians. Landscaping, a walkway into the Koksilah River canyon, and an information kiosk are also in the plan. “We’re thrilled to be able to open it to the public in time for the B.C. Day Long Weekend as we know it is going to attract people from far and wide,” CVRD parks and trails manager Brian Farquhar said. July 28 event organizers will have a shuttle service running on the big day, leaving regularly from the Shawnigan Lake Community Centre at 2804 Shawnigan Lake Road, starting at 10 a.m.

he trial for a North Vancouver man facing seven charges including two counts of criminal negligence causing death got underway yesterday in B.C. Supreme Court in Duncan. Lucas Ian Brown made his ¿rst appearance in Duncan court to answer two counts of criminal negligence causing death, two counts of failing to stop at an accident scene involving death, two counts of break and enter, possession of stolen property over $5,000, and possession and use of a stolen credit card. The charges arise from a Feb. 20, 2010 incident that led to the deaths of Saanich couple Martha Ralph, 56, and Larry Machnee, 59. Ralph and Machnee were killed when their Yamaha touring motorcycle was struck near Bamberton by a 2007 Honda that had been stolen in North Vancouver earlier that day. The driver Àed the scene of the crash, police said at the time. Brown, meanwhile, was arrested without incident near the Mill Bay ferry terminal and remanded into police custody. Crown prosecutor Scott Van Alstine said the trial is scheduled for 10 days. A jury heard opening words as well as statements from two witnesses Tuesday morning. Proceedings resumed at about 2 p.m. after an extended lunch break. The trial continues today.

North Cowichan tapped into increased monitoring of home water use Niomi Pearson

orth Cowichan is hoping to turn off the tap on residential water leakages by increasing the frequency of meter readings conducted each year. Meters in the Chemainus, Crofton and South End private water systems will now be read three times a year after council approved the staff-recommended increase at the July 6 council meeting. During the past two years, approximately 18.6 million gallons of water have been wasted through residential water leaks. Staff noted that amount is equivalent to 28 days of average water use in Chemainus, and 99 days in Crofton. John MacKay, director of engineering and operations, said not only will the additional reading prevent leaks by early detection, but assist with vital water conservation awareness as well.

“Reading more often, zeroing in on high-use months, then you bring it to people’s attention that they’re using a lot of water,” he said. A report provided by staff in March to the Public Works Committee estimates an additional reading will cost the municipality approximately $10,000. Residential water meters within the municipality are currently read in March and October and water usage is averaged over the six months prior. Under the new schedule, usage will be averaged out over three four-month periods, from November to February, March to June, and July to October. During discussions, councillors Dave Haywood and Al Siebring expressed concerns that homeowners may exceed their water allotments during the July to October period, which includes three of the year’s driest months. “That’s only 28,000 gallons and I would suggest that not only is there an increased activity for watering lawns, there’s increased activity for

power washers, washing cars, showering... there’s going to be a tremendous amount of water used,” Haywood said. Siebring proposed altering the schedule to break up the summer months but it was voted down 4-2. “I’m not saying we don’t en- Dave Haywood: courage water conservation but leakage significant this is going to have a major impact on people’s water bills,” he said said. Councillor Ruth Hartmann argued it will be possible for residents to keep to their allotments, and that averaging the billing period out would skew true consumption numbers. “It hides what people use and it needs to be brought to their attention,” she said. “Maybe that will add to the conservation.” Mayor Tom Walker also pointed out that homeowners will save money in the event of a water

leakage. “We want to read more often and stop these extreme bills going out to folks, that’s what’s driving this,” he said. “If they want to use lots of water, y just write out a cheque, that’s no problem. you We’ll sell it to you.” “The water leakage problem is signi¿cant, so for that I am prepared to support moving from two to three readings per year with three billing periods,” Haywood concluded. The recommendation passed with councillors S Siebring and John Koury opposed. The decision brings North Cowichan in line with other municipalities such as Ladysmith, Sidney and Courtenay which check residential meters three times a year, however there is no set standard for meter reading. Some municipalities such as Ucluelet have their meters read monthly while Duncan, Nanaimo Regional District and Parksville have their meters checked every six months.

Police incident blocks silver bridge for two hours

A

distraught teenager who threatened to jump from Duncan’s silver bridge Saturday night was talked off his perch by police while highway traf¿c was blocked for about two hours, police say. News Leader Pictorial photographer Andrew Leong said police,

Cowichan Search and Rescue members, and Âżre trucks from Duncan and North Cowichan attended the tense scene that started at around 10:30 p.m. It was unclear why the Duncan teen climbed the bridge and threatened to jump into the river several stories below. He was coaxed down by a police

negotiator, then taken by ambulance to Cowichan District Hospital for assessment, police said. Traf¿c was rerouted along Allenby and Boys roads during the ordeal that ended around 1 a.m. Sunday, Leong said. No injuries occurred during the incident, RCMP said. — Peter W. Rusland

Malahat commuter bus ridership doubles in three years Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

M

¿le

Cowichan’s Victoria express buses have become an increasingly popular option for local commuters.

ore Cowichan folks are hopping on the transit trend. That’s according to ridership records showing an 118 per cent jump in users since 2008 for the Cowichan to Victoria commuter. The average number of passengers boarding the 66 Duncan and 99 Shawnigan Lake Connectors rose each month from 2,727 to 5,890. “The success of the Cowichan Valley Commuter Service has exceeded expectations,” president and CEO of B.C. Transit Manuel Achadinha said in a press release. “These results really show that our customers see the service as a safe, cost-effective and sustainable transportation option.” A passenger survey also release

this spring indicated more happy Cowichan commuters — two-thirds of which said the service was “very good” or “excellent.” “We welcome the positive feedback we have received. This information is important and will help us improve the service and meet the needs of the commuters,” said Cowichan Valley Regional District transit committee chairman George Seymour. “Although we have experienced growing pains with this service due to heavy demands, we are pleased the encouraging feedback shows we are on the right track. Cowichan residents have demonstrated increasing satisfaction with the value of the service, commenting favorably on our drivers’ professionalism, knowledge and their positive demeanor.” Both connectors offer six round trips daily Monday to Friday, leav-

ing from the Village Green Mall, Valleyview Centre and Frayne Road, as well as Cobble Hill Station Park and Ride, Shawnigan Beach Estates, Shawnigan Village at Shawnigan-Mill Bay Road “As the Cowichan Valley grows, and continues to realize the bene¿t to the environment in reducing the number of vehicles on the roads, more residents will see the value of transit service,” said CVRD chairwoman Gerry Giles. “As the service grows, we will require additional transit expansion hours and infrastructure from B.C. Transit and the province to sustain the service.” The cost of running the service is shared between the CVRD, Victoria Regional Transit Commission and B.C. Transit. B.C. Transit is also creating a 25-year Transit Future plan fort the Valley. To learn more, visit www. bctransit.com/transitfuture.

Cowichan dog-lovers in mourning as WafÅe succumbs to her injuries Recovery attempt fails: Internal damage from being shot, hit by a car proves too much to overcome really quickly Monday evening,” local SPCA manager, Sandi Trent, said Friday morning. Emergency surgeries couldn’t repair the damage done by whoever is responsible for her injuries. “The amount of internal damage,” explained Trent, searching for words, “it was a mess. It was an absolute mess.” Now she’s grieving along with the rest of the Cowichan & District SPCA

staff, workers at Central Cowichan Animal Hospital, and the many community well-wishers who were phoning staff on a daily basis, asking about WafÀe’s recovery. The small shepherd-cross was believed to be just six or seven months old, and was pregnant at the time of her troubling injuries, which included a bullet wound, fractured pelvis and dislocated hip. Trent praised the staff, volunteers,

and vets Dr. Keith Olsen and Jay Pollock who did what they could to help WafÀe. “To WafÀe, it was a privilege to have known and loved you for the few short weeks we had,” Trent wrote in an obituary. “It is a crime that such a sweet, gentle soul died. We’re so sorry the world let you down.” The Cowichan SPCA can be reached at 250-746-4646.

Commercial Äsherman Äned $120,000 for exceeding quota Paul Rudan

Service tomorrow at St. Edward’s from page 1

“For him, it was more about his relationships and teammates.” Those players, plus tons of friends across Cowichan, are expressing their grief to the family that includes Anderson’s sisters, Emma and Madlen. “The goofy guy you see enjoying every moment, that was Victor,” Egils said. “We feel comfort that somehow, for the 18 years he was given, he did very well and I

wouldn’t change a thing.” His upbeat son attended Queen of Angels School before heading to Brentwood on scholarships. Anderson was on the private school’s maintenance crew. He was socking dough away to travel before making postsecondary decisions. “He had the ability to do anything,” Egils said, adding Anderson was attracted to Coast Guard rescue work. That ¿t Anderson’s bent for helping folks, said Rachel,

remembering her son’s compassion for Third World kids after seeing photos at the Cowichan Exhibition. “I suggested he get into nursing, or working in longterm care.” It just boiled down to Anderson being a God-fearing guy. “He believed in Jesus Christ, and that side of him is making us stronger,” said Egils. “That’s how we’re getting through this.” St. Edward’s service is set for 11 a.m. July 14.

commercial ¿sherman who is suing Fisheries and Oceans Canada was ¿ned $120,000 last month in Campbell River provincial court for unlawful possession of halibut and rock¿sh. “The sentence is disappointing. I don’t know how a pensioner is going to pay for this,” said lawyer Phil Scarisbrick, who represents Gerald Dalum. Scarisbrick has ¿led an appeal, but Dalum’s days as an independent ¿sherman are more or less over. He still has his 65-foot long-liner Double Decker that’s tied up in Cowichan Bay, but due to the outstanding ¿ne, his ¿shing licences are worthless. “Basically, they’re saying I deliberately made $90,000 to retire on,” said Dalum during a phone interview. “I don’t like ¿shing politics and I don’t like the quota system.” Dalum, 67, has been commercial ¿shing since 1968. Typically, he brought in 100,000 pounds of halibut and rock¿sh. When Dalum returned to Port Hardy from a ¿shing trip in March 2007, he was carrying approximately 31,000 pounds of

halibut over his quota as well an excess of various rock¿sh. But this wasn’t unusual. In the past, he would buy quota from other licence holders in order to make up for the overage. According to court documents, in previous ¿shing seasons Dalum bought extra quota from Blake Tipton of SM Products. But in 2007, he did not do so and had arranged from two other ¿shermen to buy extra quota. However, when the two ¿shermen apparently reneged on the verbal agreement, Dalum believed he had no other choice but to sell the ¿sh to SM Products. He also assumed Tipton would deduct $90,000 in quota fees, but this never occurred. “For reasons unknown, Tipton, although he purchased the ¿sh, would not or could not provide quota,” wrote Scarisbrick, in a document ¿led with the court. As a result, Dalum was charged with nine counts of possessing ¿sh over his limit, but ¿ve of those charges were stayed by Crown counsel Digby Kier after Dalum obtained quota. “One of the reasons that the Crown cites for staying counts 5-9 is the good faith effort of the defendant to secure quota only two months after the halibut trip,” wrote Scarisbrick. “This

goes to the character and belies the likelihood of the defendant deliberately failing — as the Crown contends — to obtain quota in order to save $90,000.” But Judge Brian Saunderson didn’t see it that way. “In short, Mr. Dalum took a calculated risk in purchasing insuf¿cient quota,” the judge said in a written decision. “One of the guiding principles of the Plan states that, ‘Fishers will be individually accountable for their catch.’ That is a clear warning that non-compliance with the ¿sheries regulations will result in sanctions.” During sentencing last week, the Crown was seeking $147,000 in ¿nes from Dalum and his self-owned company G.P. Dalum Enterprises Ltd. In the end, Judge Saunderson levied a $120,000 ¿ne. While Scarisbrick has ¿led an appeal, Dalum is still battling the Department of Fisheries and Oceans on another front. Dalum runs the website ¿shingforfreedom.ca and in December 2007, he helped fund a class-action lawsuit against DFO on behalf of commercial halibut ¿shermen. The still-pending lawsuit claims that DFO withheld 10 per cent of the annual halibut harvest from 2001-2006.

OUR ELECTRICITY GRID IS ABOUT TO GET

A WHOLE LOT SMARTER

STARTING THIS SUMMER, BC HYDRO WILL BE UPGRADING HOMES AND BUSINESSES WITH NEW SMART METERS. MOVING TO A MORE EFFICIENT, MODERNIZED GRID WILL CREATE IMMEDIATE SAVINGS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. YOU MAY BE WONDERING... What is a smart meter? The smart metering program will modernize our electricity system by replacing old electro-mechanical meters with new digital meters. A smart meter is a digital meter that records the amount of power you use. It helps improve the efficiency of the power grid, means less wasted electricity and gets BC ready for future power needs. What are the benefits for me as a customer? You will be able to see your power use in near real time and it will be faster and easier to open and close your account if you move. What happens if the power goes out? With smart meters in place, BC Hydro can pinpoint power outages and restore power faster. How does it make my community safer? The new meters reduce public and worker exposure to theft-related safety hazards, such as house fires, live wires and premature transformer failures. How will my meter be read? There will be remote, two way communication between your meter and BC Hydro. Smart meter signals are short, infrequent and will last less than one minute per day. Is the signal safe? Yes. The signals are low level frequency, meeting and exceeding Health Canada safety standards. Is my information secure? Similar to online banking systems, the data from the meters is secure and your privacy is protected.

Preservation of Kinsol Trestle a great moment Opportunity seized: Capitalizing on our splendid past and spectacular surroundings worth celebrating

I

n Cowichan we like to brag about our world-class status as a wilderness destination. We can regularly be heard boasting about our intriguing pioneer and cultural heritage. And we’ve all heard insiders and outsiders alike exhorting us to fully capitalize on those qualities. But for every Chemainus mural project, or B.C. Forest Discovery Centre, there seems to be a lost Duncan Chinatown or Simon Charlie Village. We are more than pleased to announce that on July 28, the Kinsol Trestle will This time we join the ranks of the opportunities that were not missed, but, instead, were got it right seized. When former Duncan mayor Mike Coleman (and how coincidental was that?) and his grandkids drive home the ceremonial last spike, and make the ¿rst of¿cial crossing of the trestle, it will mark a great moment in Cowichan history. It will mark a moment when we looked at a place where the wonder of natural surroundings and the pioneer spirit of our past came together in perfect synchronicity and we refused to let it disappear. It wasn’t quick and it wasn’t easy. Truth be told the rehabilitation of the Kinsol was a longshot at best ¿ve or six years ago. That was a time when authorities looked at the historic span as little more than a roadblock to the Cowichan leg of the Trans-Canada Trail and a threat to effective risk management. Fortunately, locals like historian Tom Paterson and heritage builder Gordon Macdonald thought deeper and were persistent. Fortunately, the powers-that-be like Jack Peake listened. We hope you’ll come out to the Koksilah River in two weeks, or in the weeks beyond, to celebrate. This time we got it right.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like While North Cowichan can be accused of less-than-progressive thinking in some areas of environment and conservation, its latest move in stepping up water meter reading is a good one. It’s going to reduce waste and could save homeowners from some nasty surprises in future water bills. It’s a small step, but it certainly is a step in the right direction.

Car theft, joyriding, careless use of fire — three things high on any community’s list of things not liked. So we guess the aggravation is tripled when some moron decided to combine all three near Lake Cowichan recently. The only way to fight against such stupidity is to watch out for each other and speak out when you see things like this occur.

Water meters reduce water waste.

On B.C.’s teachers, pests and threats to wildlife Jeff Nagel

Black Press

B

.C. news as Tom Fletcher takes a break: Action urged on threatened wildlife A task force report that calls on B.C. to bolster its protection of species at risk doesn’t go far enough, environmental groups say. Critics call the 16 recommendations vague and lacking teeth. The Species At Risk Task Force report concludes the extremely large number of species assessed at risk – 1,900 and rising – means B.C. should shift from a focus on individual species to a broader ecosystem-based approach when considering new development. It warns the species-by-species approach “is leading us down a path of increasing complexity, overlapping initiatives and unsupportable costs even as the numbers of at-risk species continues to grow.”

It does not propose a provincial endangered species law equivalent to the federal Species At Risk Act – a tougher legislative approach that conservation groups prefer. Threats to wildlife highlighted in the report include climate change, degraded ecosystems and challenges in protecting species on private land. Species at risk in B.C. include grizzly bears, spotted owls, phantom orchids, Vancouver Island marmots and killer whales. Law-makers eye pesticide ban A provincial committee has convened to consider a possible blanket ban on home use of pesticides for cosmetic purposes throughout B.C. Liberal MLA Dr. Margaret MacDiarmid, a cancer survivor, heads the bipartisan special committee now weighing the potential to outlaw the sale of pesticides and the possible impact on farmers and forestry. Dozens of B.C. cities already have local bans on residential use but MacDiarmid said the ability to buy a herbicide or insecticide in one area and use it in another means there are grounds to consider a

B.C. standard. “There’s a real patchwork around the province,” she said. Retailers currently sell pesticides even in cities where their use is banned. The Canadian Cancer Society argues longterm exposure to residential pesticides poses a cancer threat to children. Teachers demand extra leave Public school employers say contract demands tabled by the B.C. Teachers Federation would cost the system nearly $2.2 billion more each year. The demands include doubling the provision for bereavement leave to provide 10 days paid leave on the death of any friend or relative. The union also wants teachers to be able to take 26 weeks off each year as a fully paid leave of absence to provide compassionate care to any person. The BCTF also wants wage parity with other provinces, although it hasn’t yet tabled an exact pay hike demand. Salary parity would mean a 21 per cent raise for most teachers to match levels in Alberta and cost

an estimated $618 million, according to the B.C. Public School Employers Association (BCPSEA). More rioters step forward Thirty-four people have now turned themselves in to the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) in connection with their roles in the June 15 Stanley Cup riot. The 50-member Integrated Riot Investigation Team continues to pore over thousands of photos and videos – sometimes working frame-by-frame to capture the clearest image of a face or an identifying article of clothing. And they’re now encouraging more photos, tips and information about riot suspects to be sent to a new email address: riot@vpd.ca. Jeff Nagel is a reporter with Black Press.

North Cowichan spending too much of my money

Water meters proven tool for conservation

Dear editor I was dismayed to read how insensitive municipal council is to raising municipal taxes in North Cowichan. Council has no business being in the property development of the curling rink land or ownership of the curling club. If the municipality wants to be of assistance, it should assist the curling club with subdivision of the land and wading through municipal hall red tape to make it happen at minimal cost. The municipality does not have to own the curling club. All the taxpayer can expect with ownership of the curling club is higher taxes. The mayor suggests hefty tax hikes would not be needed to repay the loans. These loans just add to the spending spree our council has been undertaking for some time. From 2005 to 2010, North Cowichan has raised per capita taxes by 32 per cent. In addition, our tax bill for 2011 reÀects an increase in municipal expenditures of 7.2 per cent. No one, at least in the private sector, has had that kind of pay increase. These tax hikes are indicative of poor execution of municipal plans. At a time when Canadians are sitting on record levels of debt (more than $140,000 per household), it is unconscionable for the municipality to show such high-handed disregard for the public purse. Get involved. Send the municipal hall an Elector Response Form and oppose the loan bylaw by Aug. 15. I will remember this on election day. Don Swiatlowski

F

lat rates for water use are often popular, but they are very poor public policy. Flat rates encourage waste. Flat rates discourage conservation of water and energy, and devalue their importance. Flat rates make conscientious citizens pay for the bad habits of wasteful neighbours. And Àat rates are generally too low to pay for the full cost of the resources consumed. So Àat water rates are on their way out in Canada. More than 10 years after the Walkerton tragedy, Canadians remain among the most wasteful water users in the world.

Entering the heart of Duncan’s most festive month Summerfest: Weekend activities Summerfest: highlight of what has evolved into a month-long festival Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

S

ummerfest has taken claim to all of July as the hostess with the mostest for the city’s favourite family-fun, summer party. From what used to be just a weekend must on local checklists, Summerfest is now a month-long celebration, which kicked off this Canada Day long weekend. The heart of the 32nd-annual Summerfestival’s long-standing activities, including the Children’s and Grande Parades and the deep-rooted Duncan Daze, Âżre up Friday. And Duncan-Cowichan Festival Society artistic director and president Longevity John Falkner says everyone’s on board with this year’s spread of activities, new and old. “There’s always someone who steps forward with great ideas,â€? Falkner said. “But it’s not always about having ideas, it’s about implementing them.â€? Falkner, along with the society’s board, has “attempted to do some crazy thingsâ€? with this year’s lineup. “We all have one common goal: that it’s different every year.â€? Duncan Business Improvement Area Society’s Duncan Daze will see downtown Duncan store owners Ă€ooding the streets, showing their merchandise as well as rolling out wicked deals alongside a ton of fun, all-age activities. The famous kids-on-bikes Children’s Parade kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Friday night from Kenneth and Jubilee streets, and pedals all the way to city

hall. This year’s host is the Duncan Volunteer Fire Department, which promises, “all kids are winners as are the parade watchers.â€? More entertainment will pour from the downtown core following post-parade, with both the Charles Hoey Park and city square stages rocking out full steam. Day two of Duncan Daze rises with an All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast dished out by the Rotary Club of Duncan at 8 a.m. and running to 11:30 a.m. at Duncan city hall. The Saturday breaky includes Ă€apjacks, sausages, juice and coffee. It acts as a fundraiser for the local Rotary chapter, whose members will be asking adults for $7 and children, 10 and younger, $5. A limited version of the Duncan Farmers’ Market takes place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., while the Grande Parade starts its trek at 11 a.m. from James Street and wraps up on Festubert Street. The Military Tattoo strikes again at the Legion branch on Kenneth Street at 2 p.m. Cowichan Pipes and Drums plays host. The weekend action caps off Sunday with Cowichan Valley Museum & Archives and Seniors Resource Centre’s Elders Day at 12 p.m. at Charles Hoey Park. And that’s not all folks. Tunes from local musicians and out-of-town groups play through to Sunday, July 31. Summerfest 2011 boasted the Âżrst-ever beach volleyball tourney Friday, July 1. Musicians have continued to storm Charles Hoey Park stage from July 2 onward. Other lead-up events included the All Things Bicycle – Green Day, Show and Tell Tattoo Competition as well as Summer Fest Sunday staple Children’s Day. A month-long Summerfest won’t just be a onehit wonder either, Falkner said. “Do I see any longevity to a month-long

Chemainus ballÄeld going to the dogs

C

hemainus dog owners will continue to have a place to walk their beloved pooches during the fall and winter months after North Cowichan reaf¿rmed its decision to allow use of the Chemainus ball¿eld as an off-leash

dog park. The park will be open to dog owners from Sept. 1 to March 15. They will be subject to regulations according to the animal control bylaw. In addition, dog owners will be subject to ¿nes if they do not pick up and properly dispose of their animal’s fecal matter or if their dog is found to be excessively barking. As part of the recommendation, the municipality will also consider including a fully fenced stand-alone dog park in the 2012 Parks and Recreation Capital budget and in the Chemainus Town Centre Revitalization Plan. The recommendations were approved June 15. — Niomi Pearson

Gadget query hooks some answers

S

omething’s ¿shy about Obie Olson’s gadget. Literally. Olson asked News Leader Pictorial readers for help last month in determining the purpose of a wooden device in his possession he believes dates back from the 1920s. Mill Bay resident Emerson Dobroskay is one of a handful who suggested the unit was a ¿sherman’s friend. “I’m a senior citizen who grew up in Saskatoon, but I’ve seen a similar tool up in Saskatchewan’s north where the ¿shing is fantastic. “The a-ha moment came when I saw where this tool came from. Cape Breton has never been home to the wealthy — hardworking and resourceful, yes. “I believe this home-made tool is a ¿sherman’s third hand. By sliding a ¿sh’s tail ¿n in and locking it down, it would permit the ¿sher’s other hands to be available to de-scale and ¿llet a ¿sh. “It would be a very useful tool for the price of a couple of pipe hold-downs. I can’t tell from a black-and-white picture, but I will guess that the pipe hold-downs are copper or brass. In that case, the metal pieces would, in fact, add a measure of health safety, given the antibacterial properties of copper (and brass to a lesser extent).” Another take came from Tom Budd who suggested it could be used to tighten the girth of an English saddle. — John McKinley

She ¿gures the night after it was all over was the ¿rst time in a year she got a full eight hours’ sleep. As the southern Vancouver Island co-ordinator for healthy lifestylepromoter TOPS, Connerly was tasked with organizing the massive event that welcomed more than 600 people from around the province in May. Organizing these kinds of events is a life-dominating job. “Two years ago I started gathering information — I had a terrible time trying to ¿nd a location,” Connerly said. Victoria was her ¿rst choice because of Cowichan’s lack of hotels. “We have beautiful facilities like the track and the pool that bring events into the area, but where are the people going to stay?” Connerly asked. However, she ended up vetoing Victoria due to conÀicting availability, poor suitability or high price at potential facilities. “We tried to keep the cost (of the event) down because people are already paying for the ferry — that’s a real deterrent,” Connerly said. “Some people didn’t come just because of that.” She found a perfect venue in the Island Savings Centre arena, but of course accommodation was still an issue — especially considering a gymnastics tournament was happening the same weekend. “The Travelodge was the head-

Singing is not the only talent expected to be on display this weekend during the annual Duncan’s Got Talent competition, part of Summerfest downtown.

Festival. Ringmaster Longevity John Falkner stressed DGT is all about having fun. “It’s competition but we don’t really see it as competitive.” He’d ideally like a dozen or more performers to show up at today’s 5 p.m. talent-testing preliminaries on the Charles Hoey stage beside the train station. “Don’t be shy.” Thursday and Friday’s semi-¿nals decide which hopefuls head to Saturday’s 3 p.m. ¿nals judged by audience participation, valley actor Les Broadway and others. Critiques Thursday will give performers tips about improving their act for Friday’s semis. Singers pick their own song and Falkner said to bring a CD with background music if necessary during the all-ages event. Performers are asked to register at the caboose downtown by 5 p.m. today, or ¿nd Falkner at the Hoey stage. The top three ¿nalists will showcase their routine in the Duncan Garage Showroom and the winner can do three songs. For more, call 250-597-1554 or 250-748-7246.

ith only one chance to make every kilometre count, four South Island police officers have their bicycle pedals primed to make a difference. Victoria Police Department constables Alvin Deo and Mike Massine, Oak Bay reserve constable Jarrod Christison and Cpl. Mary Brigham, a CFB Esquimalt military police officer, will be among 22 police and media riders in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock fundraiser. Participants can only take part in the event once, which is why these four Special feature officers are striving to Black Press raise $75,000 for the newspapers on event.

Christison, who is looking to raise $30,000, recalls when past riders stopped at his school. “Seeing them do the tour, I always looked up to that,” he said. “I also think it’s the ultimate form of volunteerism.” The 1,000-kilometre, 14-day journey from Port Alice to Victoria will be physically and emotionally demanding. The cyclists will meet children with cancer and people wanting to donate. Brigham is planning to shave her head during the ride to show solidarity with young cancer patients who have lost their hair through treatment. “It’s going to be emotional,” the military police officer said of the journey her team has been preparing for since March. “Regardless of all the training we’re doing, it doesn’t compare to what these (kids) are going through with their chemotherapy and recovering,” said Brigham, whose goal is to raise $5,000.

The 22-member Tour de Rock team is preparing to ride in support of pediatric cancer research and a summer camp for kids whose lives have been touched by the disease. Among those riding are Oak Bay reserve Const. Jarrod Christison, left, Victoria police constables Mike Massine and Alvin Deo, and CFB Esquimalt military police officer Cpl. Mary Brigham. “It’ll be a real mix of emotions,” said VicPD’s Massine of the upcoming ride. “I’m not above crying.” Massine’s desire to participate dates back to 1998 when he was a Saanich cop and his police colleague Const. Martin Pepper initiated the first Tour de Rock. Massine is also inspired by his 19-year-old stepdaughter who has a rare syndrome for which she requires constant care. “It’s opened my eyes to the needs parents have when they do have kids who are sick in one way or another,” said Massine, who hopes to fund raise $25,000. It was only natural for Deo to help kids

in need since, as a youth investigator, he spends most of his day doing just that. He is also a father to three young children. “I have kids of my own and just the thought of them suffering from cancer is pretty terrifying,” said Deo, who aspires to raise $15,000. “Realizing there are other families out there that are going through this right now, I just wanted to do whatever I could to help out.” Tour de Rock happens Sept. 24 to Oct. 7. To donate, please call 250-592-2244 or visit www.cancer.ca, select your province and click the Vancouver Island Tour de Rock link.

ON TOUR: This year’s Tour de Rock begins in Port Alice on Saturday, Sept. 24 and ends Friday, Oct. 7 in Victoria. Tour de Rock raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research and programs.

DEATHS

BAKKER, Arthur (Age) Arthur was born September 3, 1926 in Hindeloopen, Netherlands. He was predeceased by his parents: Detje Ritskes and Doede Bakker; brothers Simon, Peter, Jim and sister Tina and granddaughter Anita. Arthur is survived by his Wife, Rose; Brothers Gerry (Ellie) Bakker and John Bakker; his children: Dan (Janice) Bakker, John Bakker, Deta Sinnamon, Lorne (Betsy) Bakker, Tena (George) DeGraaf, Simon (Shari) Bakker and Susan (Gord) McKenzie; his grandchildren Art(Ashley)Bakker, Jane (Doug) Anastos, David Bakker, Daniel Bakker, Rebecca (Kristian) Deighton, Luke (Brittany)Bakker,Tabatha (Rob) Morrison, Mike (Krystal),Sinnamon, Craig Bakker, Lydia Bakker, Danica Bakker, Jennifer DeGraaf, GeorgeDeGraaf Jr., Leesa DeGraaf, and Meranda McKenzie. His GreatGrandchildren: Andon Morrison, Arthur Anastos, Emilie Deighton, Megan Deighton and Ariel McKenzie. Even though Arthur grew up in Holland during the war, he spoke fondly of his idyllic childhood in his small Friesian village where he would walk the dikes, swim in the sea and roam the village in his wooden shoes. After serving in the Dutch Army in Indonesia from 1946 – 1949, Arthur immigrated to Canada in 1950 - where he began his lifelong career in agriculture. He married his “dream wife” Rose Kock in 1953 in Peterborough, Ontario. Together, they farmed in Ontario for 30 years – where they raised their family. He was a very proud father, farmer - and Canadian. He travelled across Canada, from coast-to-coast, and decided to retire to the “warmland” of the Cowichan Valley in 1980. For Arthur retirement wasn't about slowing down – in fact, for him, it meant speeding up! He took on the challenge of training and competing in five Iron Man competitions, and numerous Triathlons and Swim Meets. He loved the personal challenge of the training, the thrill of competition and the camraderie of the sporting community. When Arthur wasn't on his bike, he could be found camping in his motorhome or fishing on one of his sons' boats. He loved to spend time outdoors - but most importantly with his family. A celebration of Arthur's life was held on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at the Christian Reformed Church in Duncan. Donations in Arthur's memory can be made to the Tuition Assistance Fund through the Deacons of the Christian Reformed Church, 930 Trunk Road, Duncan, BC V9L 2S1, phone 250-748-2122.

Topsy-turvy results for Mustangs

Best for last: Fourth game of the weekend finally yields an important victory Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

oubleheader games against the same team on back-to-back days couldn’t have been more different for the Cowichan Valley Mustangs. The B.C. Minor Baseball Bantam AAA League squad knew Cloverdale would be a tough opponent Saturday at the Chemainus Ball Park. Cloverdale and the Vancouver Mounties are deemed to be the top two teams in the league. Cloverdale’s power de¿nitely showed in the ¿rst game that ended in an 11-0 whitewashing of the Mustangs. But it was a much different story in the second game. The Mustangs still failed to score but pitchers Jared Champoux and Jeevan Sall did a phenomenal job holding down Cloverdale in a 1-0 defeat. “You just have to throw strikes,’’ said Mustangs’ assistant coach Ken Diewert. That was the key to keeping things close and the defense took care of

Mustangs’ catcher Zach Komst and pitcher Robert Busch discuss strategy. the rest. The second doubleheader of the weekend at the Chemainus Ball Park brought another oddity. The Mustangs were blown out 17-7 by Burnaby in the ¿rst game, but came back to win the rematch 7-6. The Mustangs got out of the ¿rst inning of the opener without allowing a run, but then all hell broke loose. “We were down 14-1 after three innings,’’ pointed out Diewert.

Luckily, it didn’t get too much worse. The Mustangs saved ace pitcher Zach Diewert for the weekend ¿nale. He was one out away from a complete game, but Robert Busch came in to end it with one pitch. “It was back and forth that one,’’ said Ken Diewert. The Mustangs opened up a 3-0 lead before Burnaby went ahead 5-3. The Mustangs turned the tables again when Zach Diewert hit a twoout double in the sixth inning that scored two. Keegan Hankins, a AA player, had the game-winning RBI. Zach Komst hit two triples during the day. The Mustangs now have 10 wins on the season and are in a great position to be among the four wild card ¿nishers to challenge for two extra spots in the 10-team provincial tournament at Victoria. Zach Diewert and older valley players Liam Joyce and Luke Skingle have all been invited to Team B.C. camps to determine high performance teams.

hemainus Baseball Association house league baseball teams ¿nished the season on a high note. The midgets started the season as part of a seven-team league, but Nanaimo and Ladysmith pulled out to leave only four at the end. Chemainus was joined by two teams from Oceanside and Port Alberni for the north island zone playoffs. Chemainus, with a lineup com-

posed of 16- to 19-year-olds, won both the semi¿nal and ¿nal by the mercy rule during the tournament at Parksville. Chemainus beat Oceanside 2 13-3 in the semi and Oceanside 1 14-3 in the ¿nal. The team was coached by Sean Hutchinson and Larry Irving. Team members included: Dan Draper, Isaac Godkin, Brandon Bonke, Keith Fukakusa, Carson Genis, Jesse Jenks, Josh Chipman, Colin Hutchinson, Liam Hutchinson, Wyatt MacWatt, Cole Whitelaw, Ethan Whitelaw and Cam Galloway. The Chemainus bantams, coached

The Midget B girls’ fastpitch team played a ¿nal exhibition game against Cordova Bay last Tuesday before heading to the Lower Mainland for the prestigious Canada Cup tournament at South Surrey’s Softball City and Cloverdale. The Red Hots lost 5-0 to Cordova despite the return of some prominent players to the lineup.

Jaimie Michieli played for the ¿rst time this season and Jolene Bull, who’s been pitching for the Victoria Devils, rejoined the Red Hots for the game and shut down Cordova with a no-hitter over her four innings of work. Jenna Bugden laid down two perfect bunts in the game, but the Red Hots still couldn’t score. The Red Hots otherwise tried players in different positions in advance of the tournament that concludes today. The Red Hots had games against powerhouses such as the Abbotsford ‘93s, South Surrey-White Rock ‘93s and the Ridge Meadows Rage ‘93s.

Todd Heard Skiers everywhere have heard about the skiing prowess of the Heard boys. Todd Heard, 12, is the youngest behind brothers Max and Riley who are achieving great things on the slopes. Todd dominated the B.C. Freestyle Ski Association’s boys’ super youth category this past season. He won six gold medals and two silver to finish first overall in his category. B.C. series events held at Apex, Silver Star and Whistler consisted of single moguls, dual moguls, big air and slopestyle. Heard doesn’t hesitate when asked what he enjoys most. “Jumping,’’ he said. Heard plays lacrosse and water skis during the off-season but the break from the slopes doesn’t last long.

owichan junior ¿eld hockey players are bene¿tting from all sorts of experiences. A visiting team from St. Edward’s of Oxford, England provided two groups of young players with a great opportunity to hone their skills in international games. Reinforcements for Cowichan Saturday at the Cowichan Sportsplex came from experienced valley players Sarah Keglowitsch of the junior national team and Kyla Pronk, who leaves in early August to start at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Keglowitsch, who’s attending UBC in the fall, scored twice and Pronk — nor-

mally a goalkeeper — added another as the Cowichan girls fought to a 3-3 tie with the largely older English players. “We had 12-year-olds out there playing 18-year-olds,’’ said Michael Keglowitsch, who assisted Jamie Goodman with the coaching of the Cowichan girls. The Cowichan team, he added, “was really mixed, from 12 to 16, kind of thing.’’ A different group of Cowichan girls and Pronk played Oxford Sunday at Shawnigan Lake and lost 4-0. It’s been a busy season for Cowichan junior ¿eld hockey that included a May long weekend festival, four Under 12 teams travelling to Richmond for a festival, two U14 teams going to a North Shore festival and a U12 team that came back from a Club India tournament with a gold medal.

he lacrosse season is heading down to the wire, with several Cowichan Valley Thunder teams ready to make an impact at the provincial championships. The Cowichan K2 Stone-Paci¿c Truss Bantam A1 Thunder is coming off a great performance at a tournament in Calgary, as it heads into the provincial playoffs this week in Victoria. “It’s THE tournament to try to get to,’’ said Cowichan coach Lorne Winship of the Calgary experience. “We applied for it six months ago.’’ The Thunder won all its games in the round robin before losing a heartbreaker to West Edmonton Blues in the ¿nal. Cowichan had a 2-0 lead on goals by Braylon Lumb and Brandon Corby, but West Edmonton fought back for a tie with just 13 seconds left and went on to win 3-2 in overtime. “The kids played amazing with 12 runners,’’ said Winship. Round robin action started with a 15-3 rout of the Calgary Hornets, led by the incredible eight-point efforts of Lumb (¿ve goals, three assists) and Taylor Martin (two goals, six assists). An 8-3 victory over Okotoks, Alberta followed. Martin and Lumb again set the pace with three goals and one assist apiece. The West Edmonton Blues had not lost a game in two years, but fell to Cowichan 7-4. They would later get revenge on Cowichan with the lategame dramatics in the gold medal

Cowichan’s sweep of the round robin was complete after a 5-1 win over Team Saskatchewan. The game MVP was Tyler Glan¿eld. Goalie Appollo Claxton had a shutout going in the ¿nal until the late stages and had no chance on the goals that beat him. In fact, he was named game MVP for his team. The Thunder had a preceding playoff series against Westshore, the only other A1 team in the league, and lost 9-5 and 4-3 with some great efforts.

“We played them close all year, probably three or four goals difference,’’ said Lorne Winship. “We were just a little bit overmatched in size. They’re a very big, strong team.’’ Cowichan will see Westshore again at the provincials along with Lower Mainland heavyweights Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, New Westminster and Burnaby in a six-team round robin playdown. “I told the kids we are the only association for the size that we are to have an A1 team,’’ said Winship. “Our development has been excellent and we compete very well. “We’ve got a core of kids that play with huge hearts.’’ • The Cowichan Valley Midget A2 team, coached by Neil Gailey, also went to the Calgary tournament and placed sixth with two wins and three losses. The midgets are currently into the island ¿nals with Westshore and also aiming for a spot at provincials. Even if they lose, there’s a chance for a wild card game to advance. Cowichan’s C1 and C2 Bantam teams are both going to the provincials this week. Derek Harris will be taking his Midget C team to Coquitlam. The Cowichan Thunder beat Nanaimo 7-3 to win its Junior B playoff series in two straight games. Shots were 56-30 in favour of the Thunder. Darren Wiersma and Stephen Harris each scored twice for the winners. Luke Cuthbert and Sully Young each had a goal and two assists while Chase Jackson-Puff also scored.

1. Municipal Hall Expansion Purpose: To borrow up to $3,000,000 to construct an addition to the North Cowichan Municipal Hall of approximately 1,011 square metres (10,877 sq. ft). 2. Diking Purpose: To borrow up to $745,475 to construct approximately 2,330 metres of diking along Beverly Street (from Lakes Road to the Trans Canada Highway); remove gravel, realign the channel, stabilize the north bank at the confluence of the Somenos Creek and the Cowichan River, and flood proof 23 homes (along the north bank of Somenos Creek, between the end of Seine Road and Rosewood Avenue. 3. Duncan Curling Club Property Purchase Purpose: To borrow up to $551,500 to purchase 3191 Sherman Road and lease the property back to the Duncan Curling Club to operate. The impact of these borrowings on an average North Cowichan home (valued at approximately $340,000) over each of the next 20 years is $15.86 (i.e. $11.38 for the Municipal hall expansion, $2.66 for the diking improvements, and $1.82 for the Curling Club property purchase). In each case, Council may adopt the Loan Authorization Bylaws unless at least 10% of North Cowichan’s electors sign Elector Response Forms and submit them to the Municipality by 2:00 pm on August 15, 2011. If 10% of the electors sign and submit Elector Response Forms by that date, Council may only proceed to adopt that particular Loan authorization Bylaw if it first obtains the assent of the electors at a referendum (assent of the electors is obtained if a majority of the votes counted as valid are in favour of a bylaw). Each elector approval process is separate, and electors may choose to sign none of the Elector Response Forms, or one or more. The only persons entitled to sign the Forms are qualified North Cowichan electors. The Municipality estimates that 2,150 is the number of electors who must submit signed Elector Response Forms for each Loan Authorization Bylaw in order to prevent the Council from adopting the Loan Authorization Bylaws without the need to obtain formal assent of the electors by voting. Elector Response Forms must be in the form established by the Municipality of North Cowichan, and are available on request from the Municipal Hall (7030 Trans Canada Highway, Box 278, Duncan, B.C. V9L 3X4), by visiting the Municipality’s website (www.northcowichan.ca), or calling 250-746-3100.
