Neighbours sick of legal Shawnigan grow operation SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Neil Haley and his neighbours are wringing their hands over what to do about the nuisance that’s recently moved into their Shawnigan Lake community. A legal marijuana grow operation, licensed by the federal government, has been up and running inside a garage for upwards of five months now. “The stench coming out of it is causing families to be ill with headaches and nausea,” Haley said. According Shawnigan Lake RCMP Cpl. Jason Kerr, whose officers inspected the property last week, there was no illegal activity going on inside the garage that housed the pot factory. But neighbours tell another story, says the CVRD’s Shawnigan Lake Dir. Bruce Fraser. “They’ve seen late-night parties going on next door in the adjacent lot with people running in and out of the facility with the suspicion that it’s a drug supply for parties and not strictly a medical [operation],” Fraser said. Residents now have worries about organized crime coming to their community. “There is lots of suspicion about where else the material may be going,” Fraser said. “Neighbours

are not happy that this is what it is actually purported to be.” The odour is making it impossible for the young families and seniors in the area to enjoy their homes and gardens, he said. “It’s an abomination for them. That, you would think would be correctable with the proper filters but I think the owner of that facility has shown extreme disregard for the comfort of their neighbours,” Fraser said. Haley has spoken with Fraser, the RCMP, MP Jean Crowder’s office and to Health Canada — and thus far none of them have been able to allay his concerns. Nanaimo-Cowichan MP Jean Crowder said many regional districts and municipalities don’t have bylaws in place to regulate where these operations can set up shop but the CVRD could act if other bylaws are being broken. “The licensing is one piece of it but if they are contravening bylaws…just because you’ve got a licenced grow op doesn’t mean that you can flout whatever other regulations are in place,” she said. Fraser is working with CVRD staff and with legal advisors to see if there is anything in the zoning bylaws or the nuisance provisions See Small grows • page 9

Prolific offenders vacating SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Staff Sgt. Jack MacNeill says the North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP have a “very good problem” when it comes to their prolific offender management program. The initiative is working too well. “The program is now at a point where it is becoming more challenging to identify candidates who meet the requirement to be designated,” he said in his report outlining the detachment’s last quarter of work. The prolific offender management pro g ram aims to treat, incarcerate or get the small percentage of criminals in the region

who account for the greatest amount of the crime to voluntarily relocate outside the Cowichan Valley. After several years of the program being among the detachment’s top priorities, MacNeill said undoubtedly, it’s working. “We are hearing from local bad guys that the police in the North Cowichan/ Duncan detachment monitor you so closely that it is hard to do ‘business’,” MacNeill said. Because of the initiative’s success, officers are using it as a model in their domestic violence work. The goal is to create new policies and procedures in an effort to reduce repeat offenders in that realm as well.

MacNeill’s report also boasts thriving foot and bike patrols — especially welcomed in the communities of Crofton and Chemainus where senior residents in particular feel much safer having them so visible. “Over the last two years we have found that our bicycle and foot patrols are really paying dividends in enhancing our visibility,” MacNeill noted. “We are getting excellent feedback from the public and [are] managing to deter criminal activity and/or catch them in the act.” There are bike and foot patrols in downtown Duncan and at special events in other communities.

he felt something wasn’t quite right. “When he went to the vehicle he noted a considerable amount of cash and his cell phone had been stolen,” Webb said. Police patrolled the Beach Estate area and managed to identify one of the youths believed to be involved. That led to others being identified. “The youths [who] were located were remorseful and returned the full amount of money taken to the owner,” Webb said. The officer said it is a crime of opportunity that s h o u l d n’ t h a p p e n bu t unfortunately does. “Although we have not seen a big increase in thefts from vehicles this summer, this incident is certainly a reminder to lock your vehicles and keep your valuables hidden at all times,” Webb said.

Man trying to return shoplifted items Merchants in Duncan are being warned by the Cowichan Community Policing and Crime Prevention office to be on the alert for a smooth-talking, polished shoplifter. The man is described as having “fairish hair”, standing about five-foot-nine and being in his late 30s to mid 40s in age. “He attempts to return items, without receipts, that he has likely shoplifted from businesses, possibly your own store,” said a business fanout posted on the Community Policing group’s Facebook page. “Beware, this guy is good, very polished and well rehearsed.” Those who feel they’ve been in contact with the suspect or who may have information as to his iden-

Officials are warning campers to make sure their fires are out before leaving them, as danger ratings soar in the Valley. [CITIZEN FILE]

Campfires okay despite high danger ratings SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Despite the high and extreme fire danger ratings, campfires are still permitted in the Coastal Fire Centre. Fire information officer Marg Drysdale confirmed Wednesday that her data shows the risk for Duncan proper remained at high but practically every community surrounding the city has now been deemed at extreme risk. She said Duncan’s exclusion is likely an anomaly and we could see it bumped to extreme at some point too. Meanwhile, Cowichan communities south of Duncan, including Cowichan Bay and Mill Bay, those to the west, like the greater Lake Cowichan area, and those north of Duncan, from Chemainus to Saltair are either at, or very close to having an extreme risk rating. It’s for that reason Drysdale is urging campers to be beyond careful with their campfires. “One of the things that we really want to get across, particularly in these conditions, is we really need people to put out their campfires, to make absolutely sure they are out,” Drysdale said. “Just because it’s in

a metal ring doesn’t mean they can walk away from them.” Those are considered abandoned campfires, she noted. “It’s not good. A light wind on it could bring it back up and it could catch because of embers. If you light a fire, you are responsible for the fire and absolutely make sure that you put it out.” Drysdale said the number of human-caused fires is a factor considered when authorities look at banning campfires but it’s not the only one. “It completely depends on the science, the weather and human behaviour. How that’s weighed completely depends on where the risk is highest,” she explained. So, even if the community is diligent in taking care of their fires, things like lightning strikes — which she said have been occurring in the Port Alberni area — combined with continued hot, dry weather may ultimately mean campers may have to go without their smores. Should citizens witness a lightning strike or an unattended fire, they are urged to call 1-800-6635555 or *5555 on their mobile phones. Learn more at www.bcwildfire. ca

Valley songstress Mary Egan was over the moon Wednesday evening when she confirmed a song she wrote will be associated with a country legend. “It’s official! The Jones Boys are recording my song Where Are You for The George Jones Tribute Album, in production in Nashville as we speak! I’m celebrating!” she posted on her Facebook page to an instant chorus of congratulations from her friends. Widely known as a talented performer and an enthusiastic teacher of music and musical theatre, Egan has been sitting on her news, not daring to believe it was actually happening. “I got it all confirmed and I thought, holy crap! I’ve known for some time that it was going to be coming around but I finally heard yesterday. I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, it’s my song.’” A tribute to the country legend, who died earlier this year, might be expected to just contain his own songs but apparently promoter Charlie Ray informed Egan that Jones’s band, the Jones Boys, weren’t going that way. “When he passed away they wanted to do something different. It’s my song but it’s not going to be my voice or anything. It will be really weird to hear a guy’s voice singing my song but very cool,” she said.

Mary Egan will be part of a George Jones tribute album. [SUBMITTED] This particular selection was not the first of her songs that came to Ray’s notice, either. “This all happened completely by chance. It was the right time and the right place. It was one of those things, which never happens to me. I’m always in the wrong place!” she laughed. “I sent in my album because a radio station liked one of the songs off of it,” The station passed the album along to a promoter. Charlie Ray liked her song The Feeling. Ray then wrote Egan a letter telling her about the tribute project, saying he felt her song would be a perfect fit. “But then I sent in a different one that was even sadder and more moving and they picked that one instead,” said Egan. “It was a song I wrote with my brother, all about where you’d be when you passed on, kind of making people around you feel better. It’ll be called In Whatever You Do but I have it

titled differently. But I retain all the rights to the song, too, which is good.” It’s being recorded in Nashville right now, joining a group of selections by other writers. “Mine will be one of 10-12 songs on the album. I still can’t believe it. This kind of thing doesn’t happen very often,” Egan said. “This is very, very cool. Hopefully, in the next little while, I’ll get to go down there and meet him and I’ll get copies of the disc once it’s fully produced. It’s going to be distributed lots of different places.” Her version of the song is on the Reverbnation website. “I’m going to throw a link to it onto Facebook so people can actually hear it. It will be the one I actually sent them, just me and a guitar. It’s actually a really pretty recording. I’m going to put it up there today. It’s a nice tear jerker,” Egan said.

Supreme Court declines Halalt appeal KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Supreme Court of Canada has declined to hear the Halalt First Nation’s appeal of a Supreme Court of B.C. decision regarding the Chemainus Wells project. On July 11, Supreme Court Justices Louis LeBel and Andromache Karakatsanis issued their judgment, dismissing the appeal with costs to the Halalt. “We’re definitely not happy,” said Chief James Thomas. “We

can’t say too much, because they didn’t tell us on what grounds [the appeal was dismissed].” The case around the Chemainus Wells dates back a decade, to when the project, which taps into the aquifer under the Halalt reserve, was approved by the provincial government in 2003. In July 2011, the Supreme Court of B.C. ruled that the province had failed to properly consult and accommodate the Halalt when the system was approved.

The province and the Municipality of North Cowichan appealed that decision in May 2012, and their appeal was upheld by the Supreme Court of B.C. in November of that year, clearing the project for use. The Halalt filed their appeal with the Supreme Court of Canada on Nov. 22, 2012. Thomas said that the working group would be meeting with their lawyer, and would be issuing a further statement next week.

OUR VIEW

Having masses of stuff can detract from life any of us could learn something from Alix Reid. The Duncan lawyer, whose house was severely damaged by fire last week had these words of wisdom: “lives are irreplaceable and stuff is just stuff.” (Read her entire letter to the editor below.) Indeed, she is correct. She is referring to the fact that her two dogs were rescued from her home, and her two cats escaped the blaze as well. Definitely more important than saving the sofa, or your clothing, or even your photographs.

M

Losing these essentials is a pain, for sure, but as Reid says, they can be replaced (mostly). And the fact of the matter is, most of us have a whole pile of stuff we’d never miss if it went up in flames. As a society, we suffer, by and large, from too much stuff. There are many, many people whose garages are so filled with odds and ends there’s no room for the car. From broken TVs to boxes of books and old recreation equipment that hasn’t seen the light of day in a decade, many people have piles of things they don’t

need and will never use again. They just keep it on the off chance that they might — the conclusion of which is as inevitable as chasing a will-o’-the-wisp. Or they never got around to getting rid of it (and no, that’s not an intimation that you should take your junk out to the bush and dump it). Some folks without garages have a room in their home. They “store” it, and close the door. Out of sight, out of mind. Similarly, some have outbuildings on their property crammed with all the cast off bits and pieces of their lives.

Some even have entire households full of stuff that they’ve inherited after the death of a loved one. We understand that it can be very difficult to go through these items and their associated memories, but it’s not better in the long run to cram it all away somewhere and refuse to deal with it. Others have gone so far as to rent storage for all this extra stuff. It’s no coincidence that mini-storage sites have proliferated in the last few years. We can only conclude that most of us have way too much stuff if

We all must demand that our voices be heard in this major development. If you wish you views to be heard, contact your CVRD representative soon.

On Thursday, July 11, while I was at work, my home on Molly Avenue was severely damaged by fire. I understand the sanitation worker noticed smoke coming from my garage and sounded the alarm, and that he then kicked open my dead-bolted front door so my neighbour, Ken Stubbs, could get inside, and run upstairs to rescue my two dogs. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to both of them. My dogs were the two most precious things in my house that day. My two cats, who both must have been outside, also survived: one returned the night of the fire and the other on Saturday morning. Thank-you to everyone who kept an eye out for the second one. Once I had her back the fire that could have been a tragedy turned into just a major inconvenience. Many, many thanks to all the volunteer firefighters who responded to the call, especially for protecting my neighbours’ houses when the fire threatened to spread beyond mine. To all my neighbours, thank you for your kind words and support, and to the children of Molly Avenue, my apologies that you had to go through such a frightening afternoon. Davey and Brodie are going to miss your pats and ear scratches while we are temporarily displaced, but we will be back. Fire exposes your priorities and reminds you that lives are irreplaceable and stuff is just stuff.

we cannot even hold it all in our houses. If you haven’t looked at it in several years, chances are you don’t need it — or even really want it.

Need public consultation on gravel proposal Shame on the Cowichan Valley Regional District. As a resident of Cowichan Bay, I was appalled to discover that our CVRD directors voted July 2 to support an application to construct a new open pit gravel mine on land within our Agricultural Land Reserve. The extraction of gravel and the processing facility will be located on the 69-acre property located between Cowichan Bay Road and the Trans Canada Highway opposite the Douglas Hill subdivision. The residents of this area received no notice of the commercial development nor did the

CVRD directors care to consult with a single resident prior to their shameful, overwhelming vote of support for the project — seven to one in favour with only Director Loren Duncan dissenting. Not only was this vote veiled in secrecy from the public but the CVRD support did not include any reference to the impacts this industrial project would have on the environment (air, water, noise, dust, truck traffic, etc.), on our residents, or on our neighbourhoods and community. The CVRD full board then met July 10. Cowichan Bay Director Lori Iannidinardo sponsored a new motion for the CVRD to reconsider forwarding their support to the Agricultural Land

First the CVRD always paid management adequately historically, but then a decade or so back, the demand for certain skills and abilities was influenced by shortages in the private sector complemented by a bubble of growth in local governments across Canada. The CVRD hired consultant and human resource witch doctors to advise. We decided, under professional advice, to set the pay scale benchmark at the CVRD at the 75th percentile of our peer regional districts, to be competitive, to retain staff, and to be an employer of choice. Large salary increases ensued. Trouble is, almost all of our peers adopted the same plan; probably used the same HR consultants. Analysis showed we were still far behind the 75th percentile point. Large salary catch up packages

we wish to declare that no one at any time consulted with us about this project. We were blindsided by the revelation of this information. How does something this monumental in terms of consequence to the community get the thumbs-up approval from the Cowichan Valley Regional District without their first consulting everyone concerned? Cobble Hill Director Gerry Giles needs to explain why she would support this plan without first hearing all the facts, from

Loren Duncan ensued. Most of our peer employers played catch up too. I think you see the pattern here, large salary and benefit increases kept us in place at about the 50th percentile level. HR, management, and politicians clearly saw that no more large increase packages were politically possible. Quietly, the CVRD abandoned the 75 per cent goal, reentrenched at the 50 per cent comparative level with our peers — a place where we are today. The bulge in the middle. First there was a bubble in the private sector demand for skills, then a bubble in local government growth, complemented with a ratcheting up of management pay scales, then a collapse of the private sector economy in

both sides of the issue. As a community, all of our opinions count, not just Mr. Balme’s. Our trust in receiving fair support from our CVRD has been broken. A letter of apology to the Douglas Hill residents published in the newspaper would be a good first start in renewing our faith that she is working on behalf of the whole community. We expect this letter to also include a date and time for a public forum where all parties involved can properly discuss

2008. Private sector wage levels retreated and are still in retreat for the most part. Not so for local government across Canada. Next, the HR people and senior management advised the CVRD board that management salary increase be patterned on the CUPE union increases two to three per cent a year. The board, somewhat perplexed and antsy about it all, agreed. It is understood that management is in a bit of conflict here, lobbying effectively for their own interests, and that the CVRD board has put their fingerprints on the agreements, all in closed session. Closed session is a problem as well here in my opinion, the only alternative is then the press, where we are now discussing what should be at the CVRD board table in open session with reporters present and watching. A conundrum. Presently the CVRD union contracts have relatively modest increases compared to management of two to three per cent per year, still about 50 per cent above inflation these days. At the federal government, employment union level wages are pretty much at zero per year, except where efficiencies or layoffs complement increases. Same

for the province: zero-zero. As most of you know, private sector wages are not growing, pensions, etc. are not growing much. In 2001 the province did a core review and fired about 7,000 employees; today Minister Bill Bennett is at it again, looking for fat, looking for efficiencies, the zero-zero dialogue heard often. Local government everywhere is headed in a different direction than other government levels — a different pattern — efficiencies are words seldom spoken about, layoffs rare, or unknown. Connectivity to today’s private sector realities are stretched, and being further stretched and we, the politicians, are being challenged to rectify these glaring discrepancies. Actually, I am more concerned about the efficiency question than the remuneration question. But, in my opinion both are not sustainable patterns going forward and I have stated that for a long time now. I am concerned, but having been part of the problem, find it a challenge to effectively become part of the solution. This is not an easy one. Here, there, anywhere.

this very serious matter.

operators on the old E&N land grant have enjoyed virtual “carte blanche” treatment by the government, being allowed to do as they please, paying nothing for the timber they harvested, or damage caused.

The Cowichan Valley will have some representation in the provincial government after all. Sort of. While Cowichan Valley and Nanaimo-North Cowichan NDP MLAs Bill Routley and Doug Routley will likely play significant roles as members of the official opposition, Cowichan product Suzanne Anton has been named as B.C.’s justice minister (formerly known as Attorney General). The daughter of prominent lawyer David Williams and his wife Laura, Anton was born and raised in the Cowichan Valley and attended Queen Margaret’s School, where she graduated in 1970. “As Queen Margaret’s School has been educating boys and girls in the Cowichan Valley since 1921, we have a rather large Alumni base, many of whom have led very interesting lives,” said Head of School Wilma Jamieson. “We are pleased

to have been Suzanne Anton’s (née Williams) school from 1964-1970 where she excelled in leadership positions and athletics.” According to Jamieson, Anton graduated from QMS Class of ’70 as a prefect and captain of the tennis team. She also received various honours for her academic achievements, and athleticism in tennis and field hockey. “We wish her well in her new position,” said the Head of School. After her time in Cowichan, Anton went on to become a math teacher, before following in her father’s footsteps and going into law. After a time as a Crown prosecutor, she set her sights on elected office, and spent nearly a decade serving on Vancouver park board and Vancouver city council. Though the firstterm MLA has lived in Vancouver for more than 30 years, and now represents the Vancouver-Fraserview riding, Anton hasn’t forgot-

ten her roots. “I have fond memories of Duncan and my family and I continue to gather in Duncan for family reunions. We all agree that there is nowhere better to swim in the summer than the Cowichan River,” Anton said. She went on to say that the government is committed to the public safety of British Columbians “and ensuring our justice system is timely, transparent and has the confidence of the public.” The new Justice Minister said the province’s crime rate is the lowest it’s been in nearly 40 years but crime reduction strategies will continue in addition to continued work on reducing court backlogs and finding ways to make the justice system more efficient and cost effective. Two other priorities are “being tough on impaired drivers and implementing recommendations from the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry,” Anton said.

$8,000 grant to help radio station hire staff LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

A timely grant of $8,000, called “Celebrate the Lake” will help the Cowichan Valley Community Radio Society (CICV) to build its operation by helping fund a couple of workers. The group announced Friday that they’d received the cash from the Community Radio Fund of Canada’s (CRFC) Radiometres program. Along with building skills among its volunteers, the money will help fund an outreach program aimed at enriching and expanding the tiny station’s locally focused programming. Mike Bishop, chair of the CICV board of directors, said it took two tries but finally the Valley group secured some funding. The station, which has been running recently out of the old ranger station in Lake Cowichan has been asked to vacate by its landlord, the Town of Lake Cowichan. After negotiations this spring, the station has secured space in the unused band building at Lake Cowichan School. But, the money won’t help fund the relocation. “It’s a grant they give for operations of community radio stations. It’s not going to help us at all with our capital expenses, the move and everything, but it gives us $8,000, with $2,000 of that apportioned to the station manager and another $2,000 for an outreach coordinator — somebody to look after volunteers and try and get extra people. “That could involve work with the Ditidahat First Nation, folks in the Paldi area. We’d like to see

The Lake Cowichan radio station’s volunteers will soon have some paid help thank to an $8,000 grant. [CITIZEN FILE] a real cross section of folks from our area involved in the station,” Bishop said. He said the station is “threequarters of the way” moved into its new digs and “by the end of this month, we’ll be broadcasting from there.” Building the station’s footprint in the area takes time. “We may be just on fold-up tables with a microphone sitting on a table at that point but we’ll be physically able to broadcast from there. Then we’ll be able to go ahead with building our soundproof booth and everything and we’ll be on our way.” They will be broadcasting through the Internet for the time being. “We’ll have the studio in that location, with the transmitter where it presently is, and once that gets done we can look at

Small grows on way out

getting a new transmitter site and getting our signal out to a broader area.” Negotiations are still underway with various land owners for a better site for the transmitter. It took more than one application to secure the $8,000. “We didn’t read the grant criteria carefully enough originally and asked for $20,000 for moving our antenna and setting up our new studio. But they rejected it because they don’t do anything with capital expense.” “I said to myself: oh darn, there’s that one gone. But, I think is was Katherine Worsley [of the Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce] who said, ‘they only disapproved the capital portion, why don’t you put in for the operations portion?’ I didn’t want to go back and bug them but she said, ‘do it!’”

Bishop is delighted to see funding for two part-time positions. “That’s a godsend because we’re all volunteers right now and trying to organize with volunteers, and then run the station, which is such a hands-on thing, is really difficult. Now staff can look after booking students from the school to come in for tours. They can make sure the right volunteers are there when production students want to come in. And then schedule another staff member for another day when students want to learn how to be on-air folks. We’re going to have a much more coordinated and well-oiled machine now,” Bishop said. The fund-granting agency said Friday they are delighted to be back helping community radio stations. “For the second time, the CRFC is pleased to invest $1 million in Canada’s community radio sector through Radiometres to enable stations to better meet the needs of their communities,” said CRFC President, Jean-François Côté. “Whether it is by improving their programming, training volunteers or enabling the community to participate in their activities, campus and community stations strive to remain relevant and play an active role in their communities,” he added. The CRFC supports the 170 licensed campus and community radio stations across Canada. For more information about CICV and “Celebrate the Lake”, visit www.cicv.ca.

◆ HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Westholme park marks 50 years SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Stewards of Eves Provincial Park in Westholme celebrated the park’s 50th birthday last month. A half-century ago, the 46-acre parcel was offered up as a park by landowner Janet Goodall who wanted to see the old growth Douglas fir and red cedar trees preserved. “I never felt they belonged to me. They have always been a trust I was privileged to watch over,” she said. Those comments are posted on a plaque in the info kiosk. The anniversary of the land being dedicated as a provincial park was celebrated on June 8 by a group of 65 children and grown ups who enjoyed a nature walk, a bird walk, speeches, music, art and activities. The group also took some time out to pull out invasive species like Scotch broom. A class ‘C’ provincial park, Eves Park is managed and maintained by a volunteer board and receives no government funding, so they rely on donations. The park features a trail network through the old growth trees that intersects with two bluffs, a pond, a creek and a grassy spot. A nature centre is also on site. To access the beauty Eves Provincial Park has to offer, visit 8107 Little Mountain Rd. in Westholme.

From page 1 of their bylaws that would be able to ameliorate the situation. But Crowder says it won’t be much longer until small medical marijuana growing operations like the one in question are done with for good. “As a result of numerous complaints and problems, Health Canada is revamping the program and licences will not be renewed [as of October 2013]. These grow ops will be gone,” she said. A more commercial process will replace what exists, all but eliminating the one-off growers and replacing them with massive industrial operations. Until then, if citizens have concerns, they need to contact Health Canada and if they don’t get anywhere, Crowder can reach out on their behalf, she said.

VOLUNTEER WORK PARTY COBBLE HILL MOUNTAIN JULY 25TH 5:00-7:30 pm Volunteers Needed! The CVRD Parks and Trails Division is hosting a volunteer work party on Cobble Hill Mountain Thursday, July 25. Participants will meet at Quarry Nature Park at 5:00 pm and will work until approximately 7:30 pm. The project involves deactivation of an unauthorized trail to reduce erosion and damage to local vegetation. All tools and refreshments will be provided. Pants and sturdy hiking boots are required for all participants.

The Shawnigan Players are back with another blockbuster en plein air, as the talented crew step up with Shakespeare’s romantic comedy Twelfth Night in seven shows starting Thursday, July 25. The gang is back in the orchard at the Gem of the Isle farm in Cowichan Station, for a second summer. There will be four evening performances: July 25, 26 and Aug. 1, 2 at 7:30 p.m., plus three matinee performances: July 27, 28 and Aug. 3 at 2 p.m. Director Alex Gallacher said he’s excited with the cast. This time, there are several actors who have never appeared with the Shawnigan Players before. Of note to many is Drew Kemp, who will be playing Sir Toby Belch. Kemp is widely known for his directing skills, having helmed many local productions both for the Bard at Brentwood and for the South Cowichan Musical Theatre Society. “It’s fun to see Drew in the cast. He did very

Sylvester and Bob Sullivan round out the cast, which will be under Gallacher’s direction and the production skills of Megan Bourns. Ever since last year, wh e n t h ey b r o u g h t Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice to the Valley in a wildly popular outdoor production at the Gem of the Isle, the Shawnigan Players have been fielding requests from avid theatregoers about a new production. “It was such a success, which was great. We want to make it an annual event, but we’ll have to see how the audience goes this year. Last year, they were phenomenal, way more than we expected, because it’s an out of the way place. And, we were really lucky with the weather last year as well, for sure. Hopefully, people will remember from last year and they will come

out again. Of course, Twelfth Night is such a great play, too,” he said. Following the reaction to Pride and Prejudice, the Players did talk about producing Austen’s Sense and Sensibility this year. “That was the question: whether it would be Shakespeare or Jane Austen again. I actually auditioned for both plays but at the auditions I thought no, we need to do Shakespeare for sure.” Part of the reason was also that the summer Bard at Brentwood series has vanished from the scene. “This will hopefully be a good replacement for the Bard, too,” said G a l l a c h e r, wh o h a s acted in several Bard productions. However, Austen fans, that doesn’t mean you are left out in the cold. “I’d like to do Jane Austen again. For example, we could do Sense and Sensibility next year or one of the other novels. We could even alternate Shakespeare and Jane Austen,” he said. The venue is located at 2465 Koksilah Rd. in Cowichan Station, not far from St. Andrew’s Church and the Cowichan Station HUB centre.

Before western bluebirds took centre stage with efforts to bring back their populations in the Cowichan Valley, there were Purple Martins. On July 21 Valley residents are reminded of this other recovering species as the BC Purple Martin Stewardship and Recovery Program hosts its ninth annual open house at the Ladysmith Maritime Society marina. Western Purple Martins are a species at risk in B.C., but thanks to nest boxes that have been installed and maintained by volunteers, the local population has gone from just five breeding pairs in 1985 to about 800 in 2012. Last summer was a good one for the birds, said Charlene Lee of the Georgia Basin Ecological Assessment and Restoration

Society in a news release. “There has been an exceptional return of first year birds (subadults) this year. Many small to medium-sized Central Island colonies are again fully occupied and some are overflowing which is very exciting to see,” said program biologist, Bruce Cousens. “The martin colony at the LMS marina is the largest on Vancouver Island and we’re expecting over 60 pairs this year.” From 3-5 p.m., visitors will be able to watch adult Purple Martins feed their babies, learn more about conservation and hear about activities around the Strait of Georgia and elsewhere in Canada. At 4 p.m. visitors can view nestlings being banded. Purple (blueberry) milkshakes will be served while quantities last. Visitors are encouraged to wear something purple.

Lavender and Arts Festival has something for everyone It’s time for the third annual Lavender and Arts Festival at Cowichan Valley Lavender Farm & Labyrinth to benefit the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society. From 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., on Saturday, July 20, visitors can mingle with artists, stroll through the lavender labyrinth, pick their own lavender bundles, watch distillation demonstrations, enjoy lavender lemonade and lavender cookies and more. There will be quilters from the Just Over the Bridge Women’s Centre, plus members of the Maple Bay Painters, some Visions group artists and others. Find the farm entrance opposite 6357 Wicks Rd. in North Cowichan. Andrea Rondeau and Lexi Bainas, Citizen

A Victoria woman with multiple sclerosis will take to the water July 20 to swim the 34-kilometre length of Lake Cowichan. Susan Simmons, a 48-year-old provincial government employee, and her friend Alex Cape will swim from Heather Campground to Lakeview Park in the Town of Lake Cowichan. She expects the swim to take 10 to 11 hours. Simmons said she wants people who have MS to know that exercise and physical activity is not only possible with the disease, but she believes it can slow its progression. “I want to stay healthy, but it’s also important to me that people with MS see that exercise is something that can help,” she said. She said she was first diagnosed 20 years ago. The most severe symptom she has had so far was going temporarily blind in the left eye, twice. Other symptoms progressed to the point where she felt severe tingling and numbness in her hands and feet. Over the length of her spine, the tingling felt like a zipper was being fastened. Chronic fatigue also became an issue. But about eight years ago, Simmons took up swimming, which she believes is the ideal physical activity for her. Heat was always a trigger for her MS symptoms, but in the water, overheating is not an issue. Her symptoms have now receded and she credits her swimming exercise regime and her devotion to a healthy diet. And she has progressed. Initially, 20 laps of the pool would demand a recovery of a two-to threehour nap. Now she is an accomplished long-distance swimmer. Two years ago, she and a group of friends swam across the Strait of Georgia. Last year, she swam solo from West Vancouver to Kitsilano Beach in the 10-kilometre Vancouver Open Water Swim Bay Challenge. She now swims with the Victoria Masters Swim Club. Her workouts and training see Simmons swim as much as 50 kilometres a week. She also does yoga, spends time in the gym and conducts swim workouts for people with MS. “The pool for people with MS, especially when you are not mobile, is great,” Simmons said. Simmons hopes to raise money for MS research through her Lake Cowichan swim. She also plans to swim Thetis Lake in a sponsored fundraiser on July 28. Simmons said people with MS are stepping up and out to engage in physical activity more and more, from swimming to marathons. “It’s practically a movement these days,” she said.

mind, was his unwillingness to do that which was most required of a homesteader, work: “Never in his life would the hand trained to scholasticism be soiled or fretted with [an] instrument of physical labour.” Not, snorted Dougan, so much as a potato! As opposed to Dorothy Rogers who, as Dougan came to know her, was friendliness and graciousness personified: “Sweet... self-denying to help others...intellectual...culture and refinement reflected in her gentle countenance which shadowed great privations patiently endured.” Even as a boy Dougan had realized that this sad-faced and bent woman was aged before her time. She and the children were the real casualties of Alfred’s complete unsuitability for a frontier life. Even the choice of a home site, at the westernmost edge of their land so as to take advantage of the view, was a mistake as there was no immediate water supply. Just 400 square feet (the size of a garage) and sparsely furnished, it was divided by curtains into living room and bedrooms for the parents and daughters, the former dominated by an enormous stone fireplace which served as cookstove as well as providing heat. The boys slept in a semi-loft. Into this rustic abode Rogers had moved his wife and children ranging from the cradle to, perhaps, 11 years, with more to come. While young Dougan had little regard for the old man, he recognized that the sons, Geof-

frey, Godfrey (“Gaffey”), Arthur and Alfred Jr., and three daughters did try to make something of themselves and the “farm” as they grew into adulthood. Long and hard had Godfrey, Arthur and Alfred laboured to drain a water-logged meadow beside the lake for planting. With only hand tools they battled clay and hard-pan gravel to dig a trench, 300 feet long, three feet deep. But when the water drained away and the black earth dried, it revealed a submerged mass of ancient trees, snags and stumps, most of them perfectly preserved. Not that it really mattered. Having inadvertently strayed over the property line, their drainage ditch was found to be on their neighbour’s land. For all that it was the boys who kept the family going, with some scrawny cows, a small vegetable garden beside the lake, carrying water by hand from a spring at the foot of the ridge, and keeping

the voracious fireplace roaring. What few store-bought supplies they could afford came from Ordano’s at Cowichan Bay. In 1891 they contracted to build 2.5 miles of Shawnigan-Mill Bay Road. The 16-foot-wide rightof-way had to be cut through dense first-growth forest with only a yoke of oxen, a plough, a scrounged scraper and hand tools, as they couldn’t afford blasting powder. Three months’ back-breaking work for the grand sum of $585, less their tools and fodder. And all this was achieved by learning on the job. As Dougan noted with disdain, their father had grounded them well in Latin and poetry but he hadn’t been able to show them how to milk a cow. For more than 20 years the brothers struggled to get by while demonstrating a family loyalty that impressed Nathan Dougan. As did Dorothy Rogers’ stoicism. But the never-ending struggle just to survive finally wore her down. One afternoon in the early ’90s, she felt well enough to walk a mile to meet some newcomers to the area. When she suddenly became ill, her alarmed hosts sent a runner to the Rogers home. She died shortly after Arthur brought her home in an oxcart, leaving the three youngest, a boy and two girls, aged nine-13. Life improved after the brothers traded their emaciated cattle See Gold rush • page 19

Gold rush tempted two away

From page 18

for a pair of oxen for which Arthur built a cart of scrounged materials. There wasn’t an iron bolt or nail in it, Dougan recalled with awe in one of the many historical reminiscences he contributed to the Cowichan Leader in the ’50s and ’60s. But it was good enough to get them another road building contract, this one a section of Lakeside Road, now part of the Island Highway beside Dougan Lake, and the money earned

bought them a team of horses with real harness and a real wagon. Then it was off to the Yukon gold rush for Alfred and Geoffrey, the horses were sold and Arthur became the family’s sole support through doing odd jobs. It wasn’t enough. When an old mortgage came due and was foreclosed upon the remaining family had to go and the old cabin with its infant’s grave has long given way to erosion.

Kirilenko has a “Capital” Connection

W

hen one mentions Maria in tennis many people think of Maria Sharapova, but there is another very fine Maria playing tennis as well, Maria Kirilenko of Russia.

While I was at the Aegon International Tennis tournament in Eastbourne, England recently, covering the event for Tennis Canada and an online network, I really wanted to interview Kirilenko for a number of reasons. She is ranked as the 12th best women’s singles player in the world and she has a strong connection with Canadian Tennis, albeit from a number of years ago. I would personally like to thank Maria for taking the time to chat with me and the help given by the LTA at Eastbourne and the WTA for making the interview possible. Here is the majority

of the interview with Kirilenko. Q: At the beginning of the year just after 4 doubles matches, you decided not to play doubles this year, after making that decision are you still happy with it? Maria: “Yes, of course, even for example yesterday I did not have a match and I was able to practice for my singles and I just have more time to recover as well enough, for me it is very important to recover.” The last year and a half have been quite amazing for you, winning a bronze medal at the Olympic Games with Nadia, getting into the top ten of singles, which is quite an achievement and now three 1/4 finals in grand slams. Q: I remember you said a few years ago at the Australian Open you would love to win a grand slam, now there is Serena Williams and your good friend Victoria Azarenka and a couple of others, is there anyway you think that this is still a possibility?

Q: is there any one aspect of your game that you think need to improve or is it just... you fight really hard on the court, you go to the net really well and I think a lot of players really see that as a very tough thing to deal with when they are playing Maria Kirilenko,.. when you played Victoria your good friend, you did very well in the first set at the French Open and then faded a little bit, is that a strength problem perhaps?

Maria: I mean of course it is going to be ahh always in my mind because I won that tournament and then I won straight after the US Open, that was my two big wins as a junior . And..ya I mean it was such a long time ago, 11 years but of course it is history and it is good history!!” After my questions to Maria, I mentioned that we have the only grass court club in Canada here in the Cowichan Valley, the South Cowichan Lawn Tennis Club and we also have the world’s largest hockey stick. I said to Maria, “I made a photo of this for you and our local team is called the Cowichan Valley Capitals, same as the Washington Capitals.” I mentioned to Kirilenko that Greg Adams played for the Washington Capitals in the 1980’s, so there is quite a tie in with Washington Capitals. Maria in her sweet voice said “Thank You!”

Kirilenko is a very vivacious lady, yet I was struck by her inner beauty, she is reserved, respectful and very charming to talk to. Maria does not grant too many one on one interviews and I was privileged to have the honor to talk to her. I can only wish her the very best, on and off the court.

Sion Griffiths brought home four medals from the 2013 BC Athletics Junior Development Provincial Championships for athletes ages nine to 13 in Nanaimo last weekend, leading a terrific performance by the Ceevacs Jaguars contingent. Griffiths, 13, had personal bests in the four events he medalled in, taking gold in hammer, silver in javelin and triple jump, and bronze in shot put. He also placed seventh in the 100m and ninth in long jump. Margo Blumel, 9, entered nine different events, her best result a gold in the 800m race walk. She also placed fourth in the 1,000m, sixth in the 100m, eighth in the 600m, high jump and shot put, 10th in the 60m, and 11th in the 60m hurdles and long jump. Reece Fougner-Rukus, 11, placed seventh in high jump and shot put, 12th in javelin, 14th in the 60m hurdles, and 17th in long jump. Griffin Fougner-Rukus, 13, finished fifth in triple jump and seventh in the 1,200m. All four athletes would like to thank the anonymous donor who paid their entrance fees. Older athletes from the Ceevacs club will be attending the provincial jamboree in Kamloops this weekend.

Swimmers pour into Fuller Lake at the start of last Sunday’s Cowichan Challenge Triathlon. [LEXI BAINAS/CITIZEN]

Challenge is a real treat TRIATHLON: Everyone

gets DQ’d in the end KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

All participants in last Sunday’s Cowichan Challenge Triathlon ended up DQ’d. And they were thrilled about it. DQ didn’t mean “disqualified,” which is usually the case, but instead stood for “Dairy Queen,” as all the finishers received Dilly Bars. “They all thought that getting DQ’d was awesome,” said Janine Frank, who led the Ceevacs Roadrunners organizing committee. “In tri terms that is usually a bad thing.” The weather was perfect for the sold-out event, noted Frank, who is stepping down after this year. “It was a perfect way to end my reign,” she said. Frank pointed out that she is not completely done with the Cowichan Challenge. “ I w i l l b e m e n t o r i n g my replacement, but I am going to actually do the tri next year,” she emphasized. Dave Trill won the main event, finishing the 1,000m swim, 34km bike and 9km run in one hour, 42 minutes and 25 seconds. He was followed by Sean Clark in second (1:45:19) and Jim Nelson in third (1:51:05). Kirsten Arensen had the top women’s time at 1:59:36, followed by Shelley Thomson (2:00:04) and Jill Ramstead (2:00:30). The Cycletherapists had the top main event relay time at 2:04:14. The top time in the sprint event — 500m swim, 16km bike, 5km run — belonged to Chris Eidsvik at 1:06:07. Second place among men went to Orphee Bernard (1:06:25) and third went to Wyatt Church

Athletes head out on the bike portion of the Cowichan Challenge Triathlon at Fuller Lake last Sunday morning. [LEXI BAINAS/CITIZEN] (1:08:29). Holly Henry had the top women’s time and was third overall at 1:06:55. Behind her were Abby Spiers (1:08:52) and Farisha Arensen (1:10:27). Because of construction on the Chemainus River bridge, the bike route went north from Fuller Lake through Chemainus and Saltair, rather than its traditional path to the south. The response to the change was positive. “The temporary bike course was well received,” said Frank. “The athletes actually liked it better than the other as they got to see other cyclists along the way as it was mostly an out and back. We may take that into account for next year.” The Ceevacs allow the race directors to donate money from the race proceeds to a charity of their choice, and Frank has picked the Cowichan Valley Hospice Society in memory of her father. The total won’t be known until all the triathlon’s bills are paid. “They provided excellent care and support during our difficult time,” Frank said of the Cowi-

chan Valley Hospice Society. Frank expressed her gratitude to the race sponsors, including Cycle Therapy, who helped with package pickup and prizes, as well as donating a child’s bike as a prize for volunteers, which was won by Ben Marrs of the Ceevacs. Frontrunners Nanaimo sponsored the run and donated several prizes, including a wetsuit. Wilderness Kayaking sponsored the swim portion. Owner Nancy Hamilton has been part of the Cowichan Challenge since the mid-’80s. Suzanne Erickson won the oldest shirt contest, earning a free entry for next year by bringing a shirt from 1993. “I think she has done every race at [Fuller Lake] plus some when it was in Maple Bay,” said Frank, who noted that she has the same shirt. After 14 years as race director, Frank explained how much she has enjoyed the work. “I love to give back to my community and spread the joy of fitness,” she said.

Stingrays crush club records at BC AAA long course meet KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Duncan Stingrays have been fast in the past, but they’re getting even faster as time goes by. At least one club record fell each day as the Duncan Stingrays competed in the 2013 SwimBC AAA Long Course Championships at the University of British Columbia from July 4-7. Day One: Tamara Garriock beats her own record in the female open breaststroke, her time of 2:45.58 edging by 0.15 seconds the time she recorded in May 2009. Day Two: Oliver Castle surpasses the old club record in the 11/12 male 800m freestyle, his time of 11:00.54 better than Colby Smith’s 2002 mark by 0.11 seconds. Making the feat even more impressive is the fact that it was accomplished as the 800m split during the grueling 1500m free. Day Three: Natalia Garriock’s time of 59.83 seconds in the 15-17 female 100m free beats the 1:00.63 her sister Tamara recorded in June 2009. Day Four: Castle is king once again, setting a new record of 5:10.52 in the 11/12 male 400m free, more than a second better than Kurt Vollmerhause’s record that had stood since 1982. Also on Day Four: the open female 4x100m medley relay team of Natalia Garriock (backstroke), Tamara Garriock (breaststroke), Laura Kissack (butterfly) and Montana Prystupa (freestyle) records a time of 4:47.53, exactly two seconds better than the old mark set in 2007 by Katelyn Hayward, Veronica Reid, Tamara Garriock and Christine Ridenour. Still on Day Four: Natalia Garriock sets a new club record in the 15-17 female fly, her time of 1:04.87 beating her mark from May of this year by 0.30 seconds. Stingrays head coach Leanne Sirup called the team’s assault on the record books “the greatest highlight” of the meet, one of the most prestigious that the club sends a large group of swimmers to. Three of the swimmers — Natalia Garriock, Haakon Koyote and Malia Prystupa — each earned four personal bests and another three — Castle, Kissack and Tamara Garriock — recorded two PB’s

each. Montana Prystupa was entered solely in relay events. “It was our goal going into the swimmers’ major focus competition, to race with our personal strategies at the front end — not be swayed by the competition — and trust our training in the back end of the races,” said Sirup. The Stingrays send seven representatives to the meet, where they raced with 617 swimmers from 51 teams from across B.C. and Canada — “open” championships in B.C. allow racers from outside the province to compete, which results in a faster competition. It was reportedly the largest swim meet that B.C. has ever held. The Duncan swimmers also rocketed up the provincial rankings. Castle led the way, climbing in all five of his events, including a jump of five spots to 11th in the 200m backstroke, three spots to 11th in the 1500m free, and three spots to ninth in the 400m free. Natalia Garriock climbed the rankings in five of her six events, leapfrogging 13 places to fifth in the 100m free. Kissack moved up in four of her five events, including jumps of five spots to 19th in the 200m free, and four spots to sixth in the 400m IM. Tamara Garriock climbed in four of six events, her most impressive jump taking her up 20 spots to third in the 100m breaststroke. Malia Prystupa moved up in three of her five events, including a jump of four spots to 11th in the 50m free. Koyote moved up in three of his five races, including a jump of three spots to 15th in the 200m free.

NOTICE OF INTENT TO CONSIDER THIRD READING OF ZONING BYLAW 3520 Bylaw 3520 is applicable to: Electoral Area A – Mill Bay/Malahat, Electoral Area B – Shawnigan Lake, and Electoral Area C – Cobble Hill NOTICE is hereby given that the CVRD Board of Directors will consider Third Reading of South Cowichan Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 at the regular Board meeting of July 31, 2013. South Cowichan Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 will replace Electoral Area A – Mill Bay/Malahat Zoning Bylaw 2000 (adopted in 1999), Electoral Area B – Shawnigan Lake Zoning Bylaw 985 (adopted in 1986) and Electoral Area C – Cobble Hill Zoning Bylaw 1405 (adopted in 1992). The intent of Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 is to implement the 2011 South Cowichan Official Community Plan and provide a modern and robust land use bylaw for the future of the three affected electoral areas. Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 would be one comprehensive zoning bylaw with common terms and conditions of use for the three electoral areas, and it would also maintain distinct height and setback regulations for each of the three electoral areas. Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 divides the lands and water surfaces within Electoral Areas A, B and C into 68 different zones. These zones are classified under the following general land use categories: Agricultural, Rural Resource, Rural Residential and Recreational, Village Residential, Rural Comprehensive Development, Village Comprehensive Development, Rural Commercial, Village Commercial, Industrial, Parks/Institutional and Water. Regulations for each zone generally include a list of permitted uses, minimum parcel size for subdivision, density (typically the number of dwelling units permitted per parcel of land or dwelling units per hectare), setbacks for buildings and structures, maximum permitted building height, and the degree to which land may be covered by buildings and impervious surfaces. Some zones contain other regulations – for example, requiring a parcel to be connected to community water and sewer services. In addition to the specific regulations concerning each zone described in Zoning Bylaw No. 3520, there are general regulations that apply to all lands and water surfaces, related to land use, siting of buildings and structures, subdivision, off-street parking and off-street loading spaces. There is also a list of definitions, for terms commonly used within the Bylaw. Subject Property Location: Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 affects all lands in Electoral Area A – Mill Bay/Malahat, Electoral Area B – Shawnigan Lake and Electoral Area C – Cobble Hill.

Senior soccer Novice Thunder strike tryouts set to start gold at Jack Crosby KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

After experiencing unprecedented success in recent years, Cowichan’s senior men’s soccer teams are eager to get back in action. Tryouts and practice sessions for the Div. 1 and Div. 2 squads will begin later this month, and they are searching for new talent. The Div. 2 team, Cowichan United, lost a handful of players including Steven Zorich, Jordan Korven and Jason Ovans, but that’s not a huge concern for manager Neall Rowlings. “In Div. 2, you lose some good players every year,” he said. “We didn’t even sign some of those guys until the end of the year.” The players who are returning should be competitive. “We’ve got a good group coming back,” said Rowlings. “It will be a strong team. It’s exciting, that’s for sure.” Tryouts for the Div. 1 and 2 teams start on July 30 at the lower Sherman Road pitch and go every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30-9 p.m. “We’re looking for new, young people,” Rowlings noted. “We

have a ton of veterans and experience.” Both teams have been among the best in their respective divisions in recent years. The Div. 1 team, Cowichan Sussex, won the Jackson Cup, the Island championship, in 2011 and 2012, and reached the final in 2010. Last year, they finished a close second in league play, and reached the semifinals of the provincial tournament. The Div. 2 team won their league last year, and reached the quarterfinals of the Jackson Cup. “We hadn’t won the [league] title for about 13 years,” Rowlings noted. The Div. 2 team will play some games outside of the league this season, participating in the resurrected McGavin Cup tournament, with games on Wednesday nights at Victoria’s Royal Athletic Park. Teams from all Vancouver Island Soccer League divisions are welcome to enter, but Cowichan’s Div. 1 team isn’t likely to take part, as it focuses on winning the provincial championship. For more information email Neall.Rowlings@corix.com or call 250-510-6747.

There is no provincial championship for novice lacrosse, but the Cowichan Valley novice intermediate Thunder won the next best thing earlier this month when they captured the Tier 3 gold medal at the Jack Crosby Memorial Tournament in Burnaby. “We were all very proud of the kids and how they represented the Cowichan Valley,” said Mike McCluskey, who coached the team along with Gord Macdonald and Dwayne Owen. “Throughout the season, the kids practiced hard, putting the time and effort into developing their skills and learning the game of lacrosse in more detail, and it did show at the tournament with great passing and defence.” The Thunder did it with just 12 runners, competing against allstar teams from some of the biggest lacrosse associations in the province. After beating North Shore, Penticton, Port Coquitlam and Burnaby to finish the round robin with a perfect record, Cowichan crushed North Shore in a tiering-round rematch to advance

Isles retain coach Purinton KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Dale Purinton will be back behind the bench for the Kerry Park Islanders for the coming Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League campaign. The team announced on Tuesday that Purinton has signed an extension to coach the team through the 2015/16 season. “Dale is an outstanding coach and we are absolutely thrilled to have him stay on with our club,” said Islanders owner Mark Osmond. “Dale is committed not only to our organization, but the community. His knowledge, passion, teaching ability and positive

THAT’S IT. THAT’S ALL. THAT’S RIGHT.

enthusiasm are beyond exceptional.” Osmond brought Purinton on board when he bought the Isles in December 2012. Purinton had previously coached the Cowichan Valley Capitals from October 2009 until spring 2012. He played 181 games as a defenceman for the NHL’s New York Rangers between 1999 and 2004. “We believe that stability and continuity are important factors in achieving our long term goal of developing young players for the next level and becoming perennial league contenders,” said Osmond. “Securing Dale to an extension was a priority in achieving those goals.”
