Third site enters cop shop debate BEVERLY VS DRINKWATER SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Theatre dining room ready for act two LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

Dropcloths on the stairs, huge garbage bins outside: it’s clear even to the most casual visitor to the Chemainus Theatre that something big is afoot. There are big changes coming for the iconic Playbill Dining Room, known to a generation of theatregoers as the home of

the luscious pre-performance buffets. The big room has been stripped to the bare walls in preparation for a totally new look, the first renovation in 20 years. “We’re just a couple of days into it so we haven’t had too many surprises so far. But, we’ve got a great team and we’ve done a lot of planning, so hopefully we

won’t find too many snakes,” said Randy Huber, managing director for the Chemainus Theatre Festival. “It’s been 20 years and this is long due for a refresh.” Diners who have been used to seeing the space decked with its curtain dividers would be astonished at how large the room really is once everything is removed.

A third site is now in the running for the new North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP detachment. North Cowichan Chief Administrative Officer Dave Devana pitched his plan to council during Wednesday afternoon’s council meeting and they agreed to take the next step. “I had a meeting with SD79 on Friday and they identified to me that they’ve deemed that the district office site at the corner of York and Beverly is now deemed surplus to educational need,” he told council. “That site is only one block over from our Beverly Street site. If it was available at a reasonable price I think it’s worthy of council consideration for a potential RCMP site.” Councillor John Koury was adamant the third option should simply replace the second — the plot of land at the corner of Ford and Drinkwater Roads that the municipality uncovered late last week it had been working at acquiring. Koury maintained that land was only ever intended to be a

No to voting machines in 2014 SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

If it went ahead it would have cost taxpayers more than $15,000, but in the end, a split decision has done away with the idea of North Cowichan renting electronic vote tabulators for the 2014 local election. “We’re trying to modernize our election process and this is a very common way,” Chief Administrative Officer Dave Devana explained to council Wednesday. “We think it is a good idea as it is an improvement in the way we conduct an election. We do it the old fashioned way and that’s fine, but that’s not the most modern, effective way.” The voting machines being considered are similar to those used for the 2011 election by the Cowichan Valley Regional District, Cowichan Valley School District No. 79, and the City of Duncan. The rental and associated technical support would cost at least $16,600, with an additional $8,500 needed to pay for administrative support. Contingency funds raise the total to close to $27,000 but other savings and one-third of the overall cost would be recovered from School District 79 as the municipality handles their elections. No money would be saved in using the devices but the units would “create efficiencies and help streamline the election process,” said Deputy Municipal Clerk Mary Beth MacKenzie in a report to council. “Before coming to North Cowichan, I used electronic vote tabulators in three other municipalities, and highly recommend their use,” she wrote. “The machines are easy to operate, and can produce accurate election results within minutes of the close

of general voting.” While not difficult for the public to use and convenient for the municipality when counting time rolls around, it means losing a lot of, however brief, job opportunities. “I certainly have a concern with this,” Mayor Jon Lefebure said. “I understand from Ms. MacKenzie’s point of view in terms of having an efficient election…but on the other hand, we hire people,” he explained. “There’s actually income going to people to do this work and we get the result. It’ll just be a couple of hours later normally. Although this comes forward to us, I feel we could use that money better elsewhere.” Devana noted that during the last election it took well into the night to count and recount ballots. In the end, the mayor’s seat was decided by just 16 votes. Spoiled ballots could have changed the outcome and the electronic system would reduce the instances of those. Councillor John Koury was on board with the idea of investigating the expenditure for accuracy and expediency’s sake and also in an effort to “ramp up the sophistication” of the municipality’s operations. “This drastically reduces human error and brings forward those results faster,” Koury said. “The time is now to bring in these kinds of systems.” The slim majority of council opted to decline Devana’s request for them to receive the deputy municipal clerk’s report and have staff add the expenditure to the budget — but only as a supplemental item for consideration by council during budget discussions.

Shawnigan takes $50K step towards water management SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Preliminary bylaws have been passed, paving the way for the Cowichan Valley Regional District to collect more taxes from Shawnigan Lake residents for the purpose of funding the fledgling Shawnigan Basin Society. If everything goes according to plan, residents could see a maximum $2.98 per $100,000 increase on their tax bills specifically earmarked for the Society. The goal is to collect $50,000 annually. An alternative approval process (AAP) was held in late December and early January to offer those opposed a chance to quash the idea. Only 10 per cent of eligible voters (570 residents) was needed, but just 152 voiced their displeasure, which gave the project the green light if the board agreed. “This is quite a bellwether move on behalf of the people of Shawnigan,” area director Bruce Fraser said after the bylaw was passed at a board meeting Wednesday evening. “In effect, by approving the AAP for raising a $50,000 a year fund from the tax base, the community is actually, I think, probably amongst a very small number in British Columbia who provided direct money from their own tax base to actually fund the development of a watershed management capability.” He said the move would put them in a good position to further fundraise. “This gives us leverage. It says we’re prepared to put our own

The initiative looks decades into the future of water management, said Shawnigan Lake area director Bruce Fraser. [CITIZEN FILE] money up front and that gives us the legitimacy to apply for other people’s,” he said. Fraser noted the Shawnigan Basin Society aims to set up the broadly based Shawnigan Basin Authority to work on watershed management and public safety issues within the Shawnigan and upper Koksilah basins. “This is part of an initiative which looks 10 to 40 years into the future, not just today, because of course the Shawnigan basin as everyone knows is heavily impacted and is likely to continue to be so because all of the land is privately owned and therefore subject to private agendas,” he said.

While none of the board disagreed the issue was an important one to tackle, some wondered if there wasn’t a different way to go about the same type of plan. Duncan Mayor Phil Kent lauded Fraser and Shawnigan residents for their commitment to the project’s goals and objectives but wondered if other organizational options were considered. “I’m wondering, were there other thoughts as to how a function like this could be funded through the regional district? Could we have met the same objectives: the leveraging, the collaboration and coordination?” he asked. “I am a little bit concerned about what the actual business plan for these annual contributions and will the board have some input with regard to how that money is distributed?” Fraser said the set-up would be no different than other outside projects the CVRD funds. “If they receive money from the regional district they are accountable to the operation here and also to the board,” Fraser said. “Therefore they have to file annual reports, annual budgets, show what is being done, show value for money both publicly and to the authorities which are providing the funds.” The passing of the Shawnigan Basin Society Annual Financial Contribution Service Establishment bylaw only permits the CVRD board to move ahead with the plan. Further work on the initiative needs to be done before any funds are collected.

Public education about, and eradication strategy to deal with invasive species will be a priority for North Cowichan’s 2014 environmental student’s work program, council voted Wednesday. Council is also urging all local governments in the region to join in making invasive species education and eradication a priority in their jurisdictions.

Valley teacher suspended, must Climate change talk attend anger management class first up in new series The district suspended her without pay for five days in September 2013. The district also has previously issued letters of expectation to Abgrall on June 27, 2008 and June 5, 2009 regarding her obligation to treat students in a professional and respectful manner, according to the agreement. The Commissioner considered this matter Sept. 17, 2013 and proposed the consent resolution agreement to Abgrall. This suspension is a step in a system, according to Joe Rhodes, School District 79’s superintendent of schools. “Discipline is always a progressive process. You wouldn’t start at suspension unless it’s very, very serious. It got to the point where we took the action that we took as the result of the progressive process,” he said Wednesday, Jan. 15. Why hasn’t the public heard about things like this agreement and suspension before? “First of all, something like this is a very rare occurrence. And then, the old College of Teachers system was changed a couple of years ago, and the new process came in. The idea was to make the system more transparent. It’s only been in effect for a relatively short time,” Rhodes said. A look at the Ministry of Education’s special website regarding teachers (bcteacherregulation.ca) shows that teacher professional conduct decisions have only been posted on that site since March 22, 2012. Sending the case to the BC Commissioner for Teacher Regulation is the final step in a process the district has to follow, Rhodes said.

A Cowichan Valley teacher has been suspended and required to attend an anger management class following incidents including throwing a book across her classroom, kicking chairs and yelling at students. Penelope Dawn Abgrall was teaching Grade 8 at Mt. Prevost Middle School at the time of the incidents, according to an agreement published on bcteacherregulation.ca — part of the Ministry of Education’s website. On July 18, 2013 the Cowichan Valley School District made a report to the Teacher Regulation Branch regarding Abgrall under section 16 (3) of the School Act. On Jan. 7, 2013, during the time Abgrall was teaching a Grade 8 Math class at the school and in the lunch break time that immediately followed, Abgrall criticized a student for not doing her math correctly, saying that she was going to fail unless she worked harder. Then, according to the published agreement, “Abgrall walked away from her desk and started yelling about working harder and that the work was easy if Student A worked at it. During this time Abgrall was pushing and kicking desks and chairs in an inappropriate manner. She says she was doing so to put them in order. One of the students left the classroom because he was scared by Abgrall’s conduct.” The agreement continues by saying, “Then Abgrall threw a math book across the classroom.” Abgrall came to a settlement with the Teacher Regulation

[CITIZEN FILE]

Branch under section 53 of the School Act. That settlement ag reement states, “Abgrall agrees to a suspension of qualification for three school days under sections 53 and 64 (b) of the Teachers Act. The suspension will start on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014 and end on Friday, Jan. 24, 2014.” The teacher also agreed that by Aug. 30, 2014 she will successfully complete the course Dealing with Anger through the Justice Institute as well a pre-requisite course in conflict resolution. If she fails to provide satisfactory proof of completion of these courses by the condition date, the Commissioner may require the Director of Certification to suspend Abgrall’s certificate of qualification until such time as she does complete them. Abgrall also acknowledged that the agreement will be published in accordance with the Teachers Act. This is not the first time Abgrall has been up for discipline.

The Cowichan Watershed Board and Vancouver Island University are presenting Richard Hebda speaking on climate change at the first of what is hoped will be a series of monthly sessions at VIU. “We haven’t nailed it down but we’re trying for the third Tuesday of every month for our speaker series,” said Watershed Board spokesman Rodger Hunter. The first one is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. in the main VIU lecture room. Admission is free. “We’re doing this because we want the public to be better informed about the wonders of the Cowichan watershed but also the pressures it faces and approaches to addressing those pressures. The first one, as you might expect, is climate change,” Hunter said. Hebda is curator of botany and earth history at the Royal BC Museum. He also teaches earth science at the University of Victoria and focuses his botanical research on fossil plant remains and the information they provide on evolution and the history of the landscape and climate. “I think he’s been at the museum for 34 years, he’s an expert in his field,” Hunter said. “The wonderful thing about him is he’s not only a great scientist, he’s articulate and entertaining and people will really enjoy him.” Lining up the series with Vancouver Island University has “worked out really nicely,”

Richard Hebda will give an ‘articulate and entertaining’ talk on climate change at VIU Tuesday, part of a new speaker series. [SUBMITTED] according to Hunter. “I was talking with the administrator Warren Weir and he said he was hoping to do more outreach at VIU and that they’d love to partner with us at the board. Of course, from the board’s perspective, it’s part of our public education mandate, so during the coming year, we’ll talk about the pressures and opportunities there are surrounding issues in the Cowichan watershed,” Hunter concluded.

OUR VIEW

High ground better, though option 2 tempting he decision about where to put a new detachment for the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP just got less cut and dried. After some consideration, however, we stand by our previous opinion, stated in these pages, that the potential site opposite the Cowichan Commons mall off Drinkwater Road is the better on, with the former school board offices a close second. It’s going to be a tough decision though. In the end we find the arguments about the desirability of building a police station on

T

higher ground to be the convincing factor. The area around Beverly Street where a housing development and schools sit never should have been built on in the first place because it is a floodplain. We saw the dangers of this up close and personal in 2009 when waters rose in the area causing significant damage. Since then, a new dike has been built to (hopefully!) stop such a flood from happening again, but there are never any guarantees when it comes to the force of Mother Nature. New building there should cer-

ABOUT US

OTHER VIEWS

tainly be discouraged, and even the idea of taking over the school board’s old buildings needs careful consideration, though the fact that there are already structures on the site must be considered if it can defray some of the cost of the project. We were also swayed by Councillor Al Siebring’s statement that the site off of Drinkwater should be used as agricultural land, but we have to consider that, since it is not in the Agricultural Land Reserve and is (as pointed out by Councillor John Koury) in a commercially developing area, that it seems

unlikely it would end up being put to this purpose should council choose not to build an RCMP detachment there. So, unless significant cost factors are brought to light that favour the old school board site, we say build the cop shop on higher ground where, in an emergency, it will remain out of the fray, as pointed out by Councillor Kate Marsh. One thing is very clear. With two other viable options the idea of constructing a new building off of Beverly should be discarded. In the ALR and on a floodplain? Double whammy.

Legalizing prostitution leaves vulnerable unprotected If prostitution is legalized that won’t make it legitimate. To be legitimate a law must serve its intended purpose, which appears to be allowing prostitutes the safety of controlled work environments, otherwise known as brothels. A noble thought for some; a business opportunity for others. This because only those who could meet requisite standards of employment would receive the protection of such employment, while it would appear that those folks are already largely well self-protected.

Meanwhile the most vulnerable of all — those who for mental, health or social reasons couldn’t or wouldn’t meet requisite standards — would be rendered even more vulnerable by leaving them to work the streets where they would be the remaining prey for those who would not choose or dare to use a house or, worse, for the Picktons of the world. The real beneficiaries of these proposed changes to the law are the business people who would own and operate brothels. Not unexpectedly, it seems that those pressing for legalization are seeking a means of furthering their own interests. At least equal efforts of our government brain trust should be directed at correcting the

problems experienced by those most vulnerable as well as at enacting stronger penalties for those choosing to victimize those most vulnerable. Pat Mulcahy Saltair

Most letters to the newspapers are in response to a news item or an editorial in that paper. This letter is about a matter that I am very concerned about, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the TPP. I haven’t read about that anywhere in Canadian papers, local or national. Why not? This is a very important socalled free trade agreement and corporate rights deal between at least 12 nations led by United States. Why aren’t we hearing more in media? If it’s such a great deal for us why do we have to read foreign papers or search the Internet for information? Washington Trade Daily reports that Canada has dropped its opposition to some of the most outrageous demands of the United States in negotiations being carried out at present.. I have called it a “so-called free trade agreement” because of the 29 draft chapters being negotiated only five are concerned with trade. The rest deal with how government regulates issues like pharmaceutical patents, which affect how much we pay for drugs, banking and taxation, and environmental issues. It appears to be far more comprehensive than even NAFTA in how democracy will suffer in the interests of multinational corporations. Does our government think we are so stupid that we wouldn’t be able to understand what is being negotiated, or perhaps too smart to let them get away with it? We need some current information on what the government is negotiating in our name. We must insist that the text of these negotiations be made public. Trudy Thorgeirson Duncan

Friday, January 17, 2014 | Cowichan Valley Citizen

What’s wrong with leaving mementos at loved ones’ gravesides? Re: new cemetery bylaw I read in your newspaper Friday, Jan. 10 the letter from Joanna Mellor and thought I would also respond. My beloved husband died from esophageal cancer Feb. 14, 2009, five years ago. We thought it was acid reflux and he was tested by his GP for that several times and it wasn’t until they did the scope test that they found his cancer. One week later after his biopsy

we were told it was terminal — doctors would keep him comfortable for the pain to come. My husband was so brave, he never complained, and we knew we were in the battle for his life against cancer. Robert was from Caycuse, or Camp 6 as people knew it, and he worked all of his life here in Duncan at Pro Mac — Metal Tech — and finally Geo Tech as a machinist. He also was a commercial fisherman and owned his own boat for many years fishing for sockeye and chums. Robert knew there was no hope at the very beginning of his

fight; he made his own funeral arrangements with Harold Wallace here in Duncan and it was HIS CHOICE to be buried at Mountainview cemetery. His father and mother and aunt and uncle were at burial in Cedar but he said he was born in Duncan — lived here for most of his life and he wanted to be close for his family and friends and especially me to make it easy for us to visit him after he was gone. I have visited the cemetery many, many times with flowers — baskets — solar lights and an angel — left there for him by myself and his family members

to a woman about this and she informed me that there had been concerns about safety issues for the caretakers who do the lawn work there and that they would have to remove items from gravestones for that reason. If I had known this five years ago my husband would not have been buried there. I really believed that he would be able to rest in peace and he should and that his family, friends, and myself have the right to mourn him the way that we want to when we want to.

and friends. I have seen how many times people have grieved for their loved ones when I’ve been there and I can’t imagine why now, after five years of being allowed, for all of the mourners who come there for comfort and leave notes and things of remembrance for their loved ones. I’ve even noticed trees and benches for remembering someone loved and in the spring even some flowers were planted such as crocuses and tulips for the spring to come up. What harm is there in people showing their love for someone who is no longer here? I’ve talked to the caretakers who do the lawn work there and never did I get the understanding that there was a problem. I too believe that people should be allowed to show their respect and honour their dead in a way each individual chooses. I sincerely hope and pray that North Cowichan council changes their minds and leaves the cemetery alone and doesn’t take the effects and personal items away from the gravestones. I phoned North Cowichan with my concerns and talked

35 years of service honoured

“fallback” location if the Agricultural Land Commission rejected the application to remove the initial Beverly Street land from its farmland reserve. The application was approved, paving the way for the paving over of the dry side of the dike. “I’m encouraged by the surplus lands by SD79 and I think that is a viable option that may reduce some of our construction costs,” he said. “The Drinkwater location is the commercial best and highest use. That is what that location should be developed into as far as I’m concerned.” Coun. Al Siebring also wanted to see the end of the Drinkwater location debate but he disagreed with Koury about why. Siebring said the area offers some of the region’s highest quality farmland, and if at all possible, it should be farmed. “It was only by a fluke of history that it wasn’t included in the Agricultural Land Reserve,” he said. Councillors Ruth Hartmann, Kate Marsh and Barb Lines agreed with Mayor Jon Lefebure and the CAO that the more options to explore for a new detachment site, the better. “I’ll support anything that allows us as many options as possible,” Lines said.

All three women had concerns about the ability of anything built in the Beverly Street area to withstand disaster, and thus for first responders to be able to function when the community will need them most. “This is about our first responders being available in the best location and be disaster proof,” Hartmann said, adding that it was too early to rule out any of the potential options. “I would like to say let’s continue to do our best due diligence,” she said. Marsh’s safety concerns were balanced with her worries about the environmental impacts of Beverly Street construction. “I think it’s a great idea to have the RCMP and the hospital on higher ground,” Marsh said. “I’m not convinced building on a floodplain, building on an ecological asset like that is the way to go but what I do know is that we can’t evaluate all three sites unless we get all the information.” Lefebure said financial and environmental concerns, among many other factors could be looked at for all of them once council authorized Devana and company to do so. “It’s really common sense and responsibility to have all three sites as options,” Lefebure said. Before decisions are made the public will be consulted.

Engineering Services Manager Brian Dennison comically recalled the year 1978 on Wednesday evening much to the delight of those in attendance at the regular meeting of the board. From the availably of Star Wars family pajama sets at local stores for just $6 to $12 to the popularity of Happy Days on TV, there was a lot of cheesy goodness in that second-to-last year before the 1980s began. But pop culture wasn’t the point of the evening’s walk down memory lane. “This evening in particular, we want to recognize that in November of that year a spry young fellow named Thomas Turner joined the CVRD,” Dennison said. Turner was being recognized for his 35 years of service to the regional district. “I guess this is as close to a roast as I’ll get,” Turner said, as Dennison outlined his various duties over the years. He began doing odd jobs, maintenance and janitorial work for $5.70 an hour back in the day and has since moved up the ranks to become the Cowichan arena’s ice maker. “Guys like this are hard to find, that are willing to work hard and do good for the community,” Den-

CVRD board chair Rob Hutchins and Engineering Services Manager Brian Dennison flank longtime CVRD employee Thomas Turner during a presentation honouring his 35 years of service. [JOE BARRY PHOTO]

nison said. Turner was gracious. “It’s been an honour and a privilege to work here. I’ve met more managers than I know what to do with,” he laughed, “but I have met some really great people.” The CVRD is in Turner’s blood. His father Murray Turner was Cobble Hill’s area director from 1972-1975. “He was a good men-

tor,” Turner noted. The younger Turner outlined his own time at the regional district in a few big chunks. “When I started with the CVRD I was pretty young and thought, you know, this is a good place to get your feet wet, you’ll stay a couple years and you’ll use this experience and move on. About five years went by and I thought I’d get another couple years of experience and thought I’d move on. Ten years went by and I thought, well, I’ve been here a while and I kind of like it but you know it’s not too late to get your feet wet somewhere else,” he said. “I just want to tell you that after 35 years I’ve decided that I think I’m going to stay.” The board learned from Dennison and board chair Rob Hutchins that Turner considered retirement in 2012 but decided to stay on board so that he could help finance the construction of a new home and, more importantly for the admitted foodie, his dream kitchen. In recognition of his service on behalf of the board, Hutchins presented the long-time employee with a gift certificate to a local kitchenware store in the hopes he could further outfit his kitchen without having to go to the bank. Turner received a standing ovation from the board.

The Cowichan Pipers and Drummers Robbie Burns Day celebration always hits the traditional highlights. [CITIZEN FILE] PRODUCED BY KOBA ENTERTAINMENT

The Cowichan Pipers and Drummers Society is reminding everyone that Robbie Burns Day is just around the corner and that means it’s time for the group’s 15th annual celebration of the Scottish bard. This year the event is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 25 at the Duncan Travelodge. Doors open at 5:30 with the program starting at 6:30 p.m. Entertainment will consist of performances by the Cowichan Pipes & Drums band, the Kathy White Highland Dancers and this year it will also feature a musical tribute to the Immortal Memory of Robbie Burns by Ted Rhodes. Tickets to the event are $50 for adults and $25 for children under

16. The ticket price includes a full course meal. There will also be a no host bar. Last year’s event raised funds that helped the Pipers and Drummers enjoy a “very successful trip” to Monterey, California, said the group’s Wayne Coombs. “We were invited down as the host band and the response was so positive that they’ve asked us to go down five years from now when they celebrate their 50th year. They were quite impressed with us. At the opening ceremonies we actually marched down with our band and played concerts every day as well.” The upcoming event celebrates Robbie Burns’ birthday on Jan. 25, 1759 in Alloway, Scotland. “It has been a real success in both celebrating Burns’ birthday,

and in promoting the Scottish culture, food and music in the Cowichan Valley,” said Coombs. “This celebration begins with the parading in of the haggis accompanied by a piper, sword bearer, haggis bearer, as well as a bearer of the Scottish national drink. This is followed by the address to the haggis, Selkirk Grace, and then a full course meal of haggis, roast beef, ‘neeps’ (turnips), ‘chappit tatties’ (mashed potatoes, vegetables, salads, dessert and coffee/ tea. There will also be a fish dish for those who cannot eat meat. Once everyone has had their fill of good food, the celebrations of toasts and music will begin,” he said. Once the toasts have been completed, the pipes and drums will play many of the tunes, both traditional and contemporary, that they performed during the concerts that they gave during the Monterey Highland Games, according to Coombs. The dancers will be accompanied by Pipe Major Dr. Gordon Pollock and the emcee for the evening will be Peter Leckie, the Piping Golfer. The event will also include a silent auction to help generate additional funds to help buy equipment and uniforms, and to support the band as it prepares for a trip to China in 2015. “We’ve been invited to go to China in 2015. We’re scheduled to go in September. The Chinese government will pay for our accommodations and travel within China but we have pay for the fare to and from there. Gordie Pollock has been there once before, with the Maple Ridge Pipe Band, so this trip will give us the chance to spread a bit of Scottish culture and enjoy all their heritage and the sights over there,” Coombs said. “That’s what the silent auction is for, to help generate funds for this trip.” For tickets to the event, contact Chuck Robertson by e-mail at chuckrobertson@shaw.ca

‘It’ll be like a runaway train till we’re finished’: managing director From page 1 hanging down will all be gone. We won’t have them in the new year.” The buffet will be placed in two different sections, in an L-shape at the back. The kitchen is not being renovated but the area near it is changing, he said. “We’ve moved the back corner wall out a little farther so all the server stations that used to be located throughout the dining room will be taken off the floor into the back. It will leave a cleaner, more professional experience for dining.” Huber said the colour scheme was “a bit of a secret at the moment” but promised it will be “elegant and dramatic and hopefully timeless — seeing as we’re a theatre, the more dramatic the better.” Some of the furniture will be repurposed. “What’s nice is that all of the chairs have been moved down to our rehearsal hall. We’re going to be using them to do some studio work down there. Freud’s Last Session, which is actually a studio show, is going to be staged down there. We’ll use those chairs down there. And we’ll have new chairs here,” Huber said. And everything will be completed in time for Buddy: the Buddy Holly Story, which opens Feb. 11. “We started Jan. 2. We had all our crew in here, all the trades

The elegant Playbill Dining Room is getting a major facelift before Buddy opens in February. [LEXI BAINAS/CITIZEN] in and, starting at 11 a.m., they began work, pulling up the carpet, doing the framing. They stripped everything out in three hours. It was amazing,” Huber said, adding the project is flying a little under the radar for a lot of the public. “We haven’t promoted this change much but we’re planning

an unveiling in February.” A huge difference in the look of the Playbill will be the addition of a bar/lounge area. Located near the entrance, it will boast a fireplace and its own style. Exact future uses of the lounge area are still under consideration. It’s definitely a case of watch

that space. But it will be a beautiful space to watch. “As soon as people come in, there will be this nice warm fireplace with a lovely stone mantel. It’s going to be lovely, it will have hardwood flooring in that area, the rest of the dining area will be

carpet. And there will be a different style of tables and chairs, just to kind of set it apart from the rest of the room. I think it will be great. We’re up for trying anything once, so we’re looking at all kinds of ideas,” Huber said. “We’re hoping that, if people haven’t been in for a while to the Playbill, they will come in and try us out again, have the full experience.” Rob Reid, site supervisor for contractor RW (Bob) Wall Ltd., said there are some exciting building materials going into the project. “One of the materials is a silver grey. It’s silk and really quite beautiful. I didn’t know I had $15,000 in those four bolts of material in my truck the other day when I was driving it back from Nanaimo,” he said, smiling. Renovating the room has looked a bit like some of those TV home improvement shows. Getting rid of the old cash register site to make room for the fireplace, for instance. “Terry took great pleasure in taking a sledge hammer and beating that over sideways,” Reid said. “And on Saturday, I had my two sons in here with me and we were going nuts tearing everything apart. Now, we just have to get a bunch of questions answered and then it’s ‘stand back, or you’ll get nailed to the wall.’ It’ll be like a runaway train till we’re finished.”

Mairs memorial marking 100th anniversary SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

“A Martyr to a Noble Cause the Emancipation of His Fellow Men.” Those words mark the gravesite of Joseph Mairs, buried in the Ladysmith Cemetery since 1914. “I think that says it all,” said Joseph Mairs Memorial Committee chairman Alastair Haythornthwaite of the reason the labour martyr is celebrated each year. Haythornthwaite, of the International Association of Machinists, said Mairs was a trade unionist and a coal miner who died on Jan. 20, 1914 after being arrested by armed government troops during a mass uprising of miners in Ladysmith as part of the great strike of 1912-1914. Imprisoned Aug. 15, 1913 for

what was to be a one-year term, Mairs died in custody. He was just 21 years old. His death was not in vain. Like strikers up and down the Island, Mairs wished for things taken for granted today: eight-hour workdays, union recognition, and health and safety regulations. “His fellow miners in the United Mine Workers had been trying to organize the mines for many years, mostly because of how dangerous they were,” Haythornthwaite said. “If you go in the Ladysmith Cemetery you’ll see so many men died in different explosions that occurred in those mines.” Mairs’s sacrifices have been honoured for the last 10 years on or near the anniversary of his death. This year is no different. “The kind of monopolies that

“We feel there’s a continuity in the struggle...” ALASTAIR HAYTHORNTHWAITE, committee chair

Joseph and his co-workers faced are not very different from the monopolies of corporations that we face today,” Haythornthwaite said. “We feel there’s a continuity in the struggle they had to improve people’s and worker’s rights to what goes on today to defend and extend the rights people have over corporations.” This year, working people will honour the young martyr in the hall at St. Mary’s Catholic Church (1135 4th Ave., Ladysmith) at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 19. “As always, our general theme for the day is ‘Our Common Condi-

tion,’ however this year is a special one — it is the 100th anniversary of Joseph Mairs’s death and in that spirit our topic this year will be ‘The Next Hundred Years,’” Haythornthwaite said. A group of young people will sit with the panel, which also includes Haythornthwaite, Duncan Brown and others, to discuss the future of the province, the country and the globe in the context of labour and its contributions, Haythornthwaite noted. Live music from the likes of Art Farquarson, Beverley McKeen and Martyn Jones and Charlie Fox will also be featured. Piper Frank Nichol will lead a procession to the cemetery to place flowers at Mairs’s graveside. For more information please visit josephmairs.ca

Joseph Mairs of Ladysmith is remembered each year as a labour martyr. [SUBMITTED]

Speaker talks how to create leaders David Marquet knew he had a problem with leadership on his nuclear submarine when he gave an order to a junior commander that couldn’t be accomplished. Marquet, author of the awardwinning book Tur n the Ship Around! and a former captain of the fast-attack submarine USS Santa Fe, said he ordered that his vessel shift into a higher gear and his subordinate didn’t question the command, even though he knew it couldn’t be done. The incident radically changed the way Marquet approached leadership issues and was instrumental in his decision to begin challenging the age-old style of command in which some people give orders and others follow those orders without question. As a result, his crew went from being “worst to first” in the American submarine fleet. The ship had a disproportionate number of its officers and enlisted men promoted to positions of increased responsibility, including 10 who went on to become submarine captains themselves. Marquet retired from the navy in 2009 and has focused much of his efforts on “turning followers into

leaders” ever since with his book and travelling the world talking to business groups, universities and other organizations who want to learn more about his style of leadership. He will be in Nanaimo on Feb. 19 to speak at the Port Theatre in an event sponsored primarily by the Nanaimo Daily News and the Coastal Community Credit Union. Marquet’s presentation, called “Creating Leadership at Every Level,” is the latest in a series of leadership initiatives that is being sponsored by the Daily News and other community groups. “Fundamentally, most of us have a picture of leadership that has been around for centuries in which some people take control and give all the orders,” Marquet told the Daily News from New York. “But I’ve discovered it’s far better to ask people what they think should be done and provide input instead of just being told what to do. It’s a far more effective style of leadership.” Tickets to attend Marquet’s presentation are $44 and are available at the Port Theatre.

in Grand Forks... Dad left Grand Forks in 1915 to serve in the Canadian Army. He was [a] pharmacist in a tent hospital, #5 Canadian General Hospital in Salonika in the Mediterranean for three years. After the war he joined the Hudson’s Bay Co. and opened the drug department in their new store in Victoria; after three years he was transferred to Vancouver to manage the drug department there. He moved to Duncan in 1927 and operated a store there until he died in 1969. The sign in the front window read, ‘A.R. MANN CHEMIST.’ He practised for 60 years.” His father’s younger brother Edward began his apprenticeship in hometown Peterborough, Ont. before moving to Nelson and Prince Rupert. Another family graduate of OCP, he was licensed in B.C. in 1916, operating his brother’s store in Grand Forks until 1919 when he moved back to Rupert to work with C.H. Orme. “It was decided to open a store in Terrace and so Ed and the complete drug store stock went up the Skeena River by boat. Unfortunately, the vessel hit a rock or sand bank and capsized; no lives were lost but the stock was and so the store never opened. In 1928, Ed left Rupert and joined his Uncle Willie and so Mann-Rutherford Drugs was born. Ed received the Robins Bowl of Hygeia Award in 1967. He remained in Nelson until his death in 1973. He served as a druggist for 54 years.” Maternal uncle Bert Tovey, after graduating from OCP after an apprenticeship in his hometown of Peterboro, “served the community of Unity, [Sask.] for his whole working career owning his own store. For many years he was the senior pharmacist in Saskatchewan. He died at age 93 in 1975” after a 50year career. Art even married into the profession, his fatherin-law Percy M.

Shared a Bunsen burner with Pierre Berton

SAUNDERS SUBARU

From page 18 cousin Roy Wesley Mann, from Nelson, was a classmate in 1949 in the first UBC pharmacy course. Roy worked with his father in operating two pharmacies in Nelson until his career was cut short by MS and his death in 1961. There is no Art Mann III but Art Jr.’s daughter Megan Elizabeth [Maitland] graduated from UBC in 1980, worked for a time in Kitimat before moving with her family to Nanaimo. “Megan,” wrote Art with pride, “has the distinction of having both grandfathers and her dad as pharmacists.” Which brings us to Arthur Rutherford Mann whose good fortune in sharing his father’s initials meant no expense of changing signs, labels or stationery when he assumed proprietorship of the Craig Street drug store. While attending Victoria College he’d “shared a Bunsen burner” with future author Pierre Berton. With his characteristic good humour, Art recalled having “registered as an apprentice in 1937, paid $1 and immediately retired. “The reason for this quick move was the fact that a rumour had it that [Senior] Matric Latin would be a new requirement and I had [had] enough problems with Grade 12 Latin. [I apprenticed with the] Vancouver Drug Co. in Victoria in 1939... Joined the armed forces and served in the Dispensary of #16 Canadian General Hospital in Britain, France, Belgium and Germany. Returned to B.C. and was in the first class of Pharmacy at UBC, graduating in 1949... “Thoroughly enjoyed the 20 years [that] Dad and I operated in Duncan and then I operated another 20 years on my own until selling and retiring in 1989.

BC sevens have real Shawnigan flavour KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Shawnigan Lake School, Brentwood College, and the Cowichan Rugby Football Club are all well-represented on the BC Elite Youth Sevens men’s rosters for the upcoming Las Vegas Sevens Tournament. Tyler Beselt and Michael Henderson, who play for both Shawnigan and the CRFC, have been named to the BC U18 team, while George Barton, who also plays for both teams, is on the U17 squad. Henderson and Barton competed in the Las Vegas

tournament last year. Also from Shawnigan, Marshall Fremlin and Wesley Wong are on the U18 team, and Aaron Hersant of Brentwood was selected for the U17 roster. The Las Vegas Sevens is the first major tournament of the season for the Elite Youth program, and will help identify players for future Olympics and World Cups. The Vegas tournament begins on Wednesday, Jan. 22. The BC U18s will play in U18 Elite Pool A, and the BC U17s will be in U18 Elite Pool B.

Valley foursome bound for Vegas sevens with BC KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Four Cowichan Valley rugby players, including three returnees, will try to help the BC U18 women’s sevens team improve on a third-place finish at last year’s Las Vegas Sevens tournament. Brentwood College’s Ciel ArbourBoehme, Shawnigan Lake School grad and current UVic Vike Nicole Crowley, and Cowichan Secondary School senior Adrienne Saari will be joined by newcomer Hannah Morten, also of Cow High. The athletes were among approximately 50 who attended trials in December and a camp earlier this month as Brad Skene, head coach of the BC U18 team and Cowichan Secondary, put together the team. “Part of Adrienne’s strength is her intelligence as a player,” Skene noted. “She knows her limitations and what she does well. She will put her hard hat on and go to work being a physical presence. “Hannah brings very good game sense to the field. She is faster than she appears and is a competitor. We will need her to defend well and help win the ball at the tackle.” The BC U18 team will be making its second appearance in Vegas later this month, with more than a dozen other teams in the Girls High School division. “Our goals this year are to develop the players’ skill level, to execute fundamental strategies and to compete in every aspect of the game,” Skene said. “I would like to say one of our goals is to be in the final, but it is so difficult to predict how the opposition will play without having previous knowledge of them. This is a great situation for our players to test themselves against strong competition.”

With their all-star games and cup draws completed, Cowichan’s senior soccer teams are set to return to regular-season action. All three teams are scheduled to play at home this weekend: Div. 2 Cowichan United will host Saanich Fusion at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Div. 2 Cowichan FC will host Castaways on the Ladysmith turf at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, and Cowichan’s Lower Island Women’s Soccer League entry will host Castaways at Evans Park at noon on Sunday. All three teams were well represented in their all-star games earlier this month, notably Cowichan United, which had four players on the Div. 2 all-star team, led by coach Neall Rowlings. The Div. 2 all-stars defeated the Div. 3 all-stars 4-1, getting a goal from Cowichan’s Jordan Korven and a shutout half from Darian Achurch. Jose Muro and Jacob Ready also suited up. “All of the guys were great and the Cowichan boys represented very well,” Rowlings said. “It was a good league-building exercise and very entertaining. The Div. 1 all-star team, including Cowichan’s Brad Thorne, Jesse Winters, Tyler Hughes and Steve Scott, lost to the Fraser

Valley all-stars on penalty kicks. Cowichan’s Marilyn Pugh helped coach Team Blue in the combined Div./Premier LIWSA all-star game, joining players Nicole Pugh (a three-time all-star), Ashley Porter and Kerynne Bain. Nicole Pugh scored in the first half but had it called back on a questionable offside, and Bain earned a shutout in her half of the game, a 4-1 win for Team Blue. “All in all, though it was very cold, it was a great game and a good experience,” said Marilyn Pugh. Both Cowichan United and Cowichan FC were pleased with the results of the Jackson Cup draw, also held earlier this month. United has a bye through the first round, and will face another Div. 2 team in the quarterfinals. “Three years running we’ve made it to the quarterfinals,” Rowlings noted. “This year we start there.” Cowichan FC will have to win a play-in game with Gorge’s Div. 2 team to get into the first round, where they would face another Div. 2 team in Gordon Head. “Starting like that is better than last year,” said FC coach Glen Martin, whose team bowed out early in a much tougher draw in the 2013 tournament.

Charles and Hudson lead T-Birds to easy home win over Alberni Armada Despite a 10-day layoff between senior boys basketball games, the Cowichan Secondary Thunderbirds showed no signs of rust as they easily defeated the Alberni District Secondary Armada 72-45 in Duncan on Tuesday. Josh Charles showed his versatility all over the floor, pacing the offence with 23 points, shooting 4-for-7 from three-point range, and adding 11 rebounds. Tyler Hudson contributed 12 points and seven boards. Braydon Aumen and Travis McDonald scored nine points apiece, and Aumen had a team-high five steals. Jordan Frost grabbed 12 rebounds to go with his six points. The T-Birds outscored the Armada in every quarter, dominating in particular the first and third quarters, 15-5 and 18-7 respectively. Cowichan is competing in the Pitt Meadows Air Show Tournament this weekend, and will play host to G.P. Vanier next Tuesday.

Duncan Christian School’s senior boys basketball team collected its best finish ever at a B.C. Christian Championship, placing third in the tournament in Surrey last weekend. The Chargers capped off their impressive run at the tournament with a 7950 win over Langley Christian in the bronze medal game. Nick Kapteyn, who was named to the tournament all-star team, led DCS with 31 points and eight rebounds, while Doug Groenendijk had 22 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists, and Jesse Vanwingerden chipped in with 18 points. The Chargers cruised through the first round of the tournament with an 87-25 win over High Road Christian Academy, getting 35 points and nine rebounds from Kapteyn, 16 points from Vanwingerden, 10 from Michael Brandsma, and eight points, six boards and 10 assists from Groenendijk. DCS put up another dominant performance in the quarterfinal, beating Pacific Christian 53-26. Kapteyn led the way with 22 points and nine rebounds, and Groenendijk added 17 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists.

Johnny Caron and the Chargers defeated Dwight on Wednesday, just days after claiming bronze at the provincial Christian tournament. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN] The Chargers’ lone defeat was also their closest game: a 57-49 loss to Unity Christian in the semis. Kapteyn scored 15 points, Vanwingerden had 12, and Groenendijk added 10 points, 14 boards

Stingrays swimmers dive off the blocks during a race at last month’s Time Trial. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN]

Duncan Stingrays break in new scoreboard at December Time Trial The new display board, in use for the first time, wasn’t the only bright spot as the Duncan Stingrays held their Winter Time Trial meet at the Cowichan Aquatic Centre last month. The board is one of only three of its kind on Vancouver Island, and the club used the minor competition to test it prior to the Vancouver Island Regional Short Course Championships this weekend. “We’ll be able to hold higher-level meets and provincial championships,” Stingrays head coach Leanne Sirup commented. “It will raise the profile of our team greatly.” The December meet also saw two new regional championship qualifiers: Mathias Bell in the senior male 100m breaststroke, and Mya Smith in the 10 and under female 50m freestyle. A new club record was also set as Oliver Castle swam the 11/12 male 100m individual medley in 1:14.34, beating Brian Hill’s time that had stood since 1995. The Stingrays had 56 competitors in the meet, including 19 first-time racers, several of whom came up through the I Can Swim program. New competitors included Camryn Beck, Hallie Bryant, James Bryant, Karis Jonat, Tembi Jonat, Clara Kodweiss, Calem Lander, Rahma Lossing, Ziad Lossing, Brendan Lucas, Eamon Manley, Spencer McKay Fisher, Hannah Richards, Katelyn Seery, Chong Teng, Jacob Thomas, and Taylor Walters.

Improvement coming for CSS senior girls KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Things are improving for Cowichan Secondary’s senior girls basketball team, even if the wins haven’t yet materialized. The Thunderbirds lost their last two games — 63-42 against G.P. Vanier in Courtenay last Thursday and 49-27 at home against Alberni District on Tuesday — but both contests were close at halftime and the coaches see that the players are improving. Much of Cowichan’s game — rebounding, passing, running of the offence, fast break and press-breaking — took a step forward

against Vanier, where the T-Birds trailed just 29-24 at the half. Against Alberni on Tuesday, the gap was again just five points at halftime. “The game with Port Alberni followed the pattern of most of our games recently,” coach Jim Nugent said. “In the third quarter the girls had about a three- or four-minute lapse and were unable to close the gap after that. Despite another loss, the coaching staff can see improvement and were really happy with girls compete level.” Sarah St. Cyr was Cowichan’s top scorer on Tuesday with six points.

Tournament victory for pee wee Caps

DON’T M ISS OUT... GET YOU RS TODAY! This book is a pictorial celebration of The Canadian Scottish Regiment’s first 100 years. It stands as a tribute to the men and women who have defended the nation, serving with dignity and honour. “They know, as their father’s did, the Regimental motto ‘Deas Gu Cath’ (Ready for the Fray) will always be upheld.” - The Honourable Peter McKay, Minister of National Defence

Fighting through the playoffs to the goldmedal final of a January tournament that attracts 40 teams from across British Columbia, the Selkirk Recycling pee wee Tier 1 Cowichan Valley Capitals met a team from just up the highway in the final. The Capitals battled through the Platinum tier at the 55th annual Chilliwack Pee Wee Jamboree only to face their league rivals from Nanaimo in the championship game. It worked out in Cowichan’s favour, as the Capitals won 5-2 to claim the title. Kahlil Fontana led the way in the final with a hat trick, while Luc Wilson and Corson Hopwo each had a goal and an assist. The Capitals’ biggest heroes in the tournament may have been goalies Will Gurski and Sacha Rouselle, who combined for a .902 save percentage and 2.00 goals-against average, winning the Robbie Tallas Award as the tourney’s top netminders. The tournament started with a 5-1 win over the Juan de Fuca Grizzlies. Hopwo scored twice, Jo Jo Tanaka-Campbell had a goal and two helpers, and Ty Brant was

named Player of the Game. Wilson scored twice in the next game, a 4-1 victory over Ridge Meadows. Brant and Kabore Dunn also scored, and Rouselle was named Player of the Game after making 21 saves. The round robin wrapped up with a 6-3 win over the Kelowna Rockets. Gurski preserved his team’s lead as Cowichan was outshot in the third period. A hat trick netted Player of the Game honours for Cody Shepheard, while Tanaka-Campbell had two goals and Hopwo chipped in with three assists. The quarterfinals saw Cowichan top Surrey 9-3. Wilson had a hat trick and one assist, Fontana had two goals and a helper, and Easton recorded a goal and two assists and was named Player of the Game. The semifinal was a rematch with the Kelowna Rockets. The Capitals went ahead on goals by Isaac Leik and Easton, only to see the Rockets force overtime, followed by a shootout. Shepheard had the lone goal of the shootout, and player of the game Gurski turned aside all three Kelowna shooters to send his team to the final.

Dance night with Diallo up Friday

J

uno award-winning Alpha Yaya Diallo brings the sounds of West Africa to the Comox Valley. As a child growing up in Guinea, West Africa, Alpha Yaya Diallo was surrounded by music. His family moved around frequently to various regions, exposing him to a variety of cultures and musical traditions from the Malenke, Sousou and his own Foulani people and he was eager to soak up as much as he could. “I started playing music when I was very young,” says Diallo. “At first, I was playing percussion with different kinds of sticks and then I started making my own guitar with electrical cables. My mom got me my first guitar. I kept playing it while listening to different kinds of local music and jamming with friends on the street.” These early influences transformed Diallo

into a multi-talented artist — a guitarist, singer, songwriter — whose dexterous acoustic and electric guitar-playing, with its fluid melodic lines and compelling grooves, places him in the front ranks of African musicians. Diallo is performing during the WinterBites Festival in Comox Valley on Jan. 17 as part of the West African Dance Night at Best Western Plus the Westerly Hotel & Convention Centre, in Courtenay. The four-time Juno award winner moved to Vancouver in 1991 after playing the Vancouver Folk Festival. WinterBites Festival is Jan. 16 to 31. Tickets for West African Dance Night are $25 and are on sale now at winterbitesfestival. com (Doors open at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m. in the Best Western Plus the Westerly Hotel & Convention Centre.)

Odds, Grapes of Wrath band together

I

t seems natural, as a cultural hub, that Comox Valley inspires musician collaborations — a trend that rang true when two Canadian bands, the Odds and The Grapes of Wrath, played together for the first time two years ago at the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay and will, once again, reunite on stage during WinterBites Festival on Jan. 24. “Even though we know those guys, we hadn’t seen them in years,” said Pat Steward, the Odds drummer. “At that particular show we did our set and then we stuck around to watch their set, and all night we were going, ‘oh my God I forgot about that song.’ They just had so many great songs. Since that night, we have done about half a dozen of those shows and it is a really good double bill of ’90s guitar pop.” Adding to the energy of two great bands,

and as a special treat for WinterBites Festival goers, a third Canadian band will join the bill. Shaun Verreault, guitarist and vocalist of Wide Mouth Mason, will join the Odds in place of vocalist Craig Northy, creating what they humorously call themselves, “Odds Mouth Mason”. The Grapes of Wrath and Odds featuring Shaun Verreault of Wide Mouth Mason play at the Florence Filberg Centre, Jan. 24. WinterBites Concert + Stay packages for the double bill are being offered through Old House Village Hotel & Spa ($94.50 per person) and Holiday Inn Express Hotel ($99.95 per person). Individual tickets are $40. Doors open at 8 p.m. and show at 9 p.m. Ticket information, packages and concert listings are available at www.winterbitesfestival.com
