Solutions sought for ongoing violence MIKE D’AMOUR CITIZEN

Q of A shows what We can do KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

So inspired were the eight students from Queen of Angels School who attended We Day in Vancouver last fall, they wanted to bring the event to their classmates. The result was Mini We Day, a scaleddown but still impressive version of the youth empowerment celebration organized by Craig Kielburger’s Free the Children charity, held at the school on Thursday. “The kids came back motivated, pumped. They were at my door every

day with ideas for things they could do in the community,” said Yvonne Van Ryk, Q of A’s First Nations support worker and mentor to student council (renamed “We Council” this year). “[Mini We Day] happened because they were committed to doing things.” Mini We Day included speakers like Richard Peter, the three-time Paralympic gold medalist and member of Cowichan Tribes, and Matthew [Snoop] Blokker, head coach of the three-time national junior football champion Vancouver Island Raiders. The school also got entertainment from dancers and

the band Dirt, a punk ensemble of Q of A students. Tickets to We Day Vancouver are in high demand, and can’t be purchased, but have to be earned by schools. The school has already secured 22 spots for We Day 2013 by taking part in Free the Children initiatives like We Are Silent (taking a vow of silence and earning money for those who don’t have a voice of their own), We Create Change (collecting bags of pennies — $500 worth — for Water for Life), and We Stand Together (raising Aboriginal awareness in the school and community).

Members of the Cowichan community are being asked to take part in a workshop to discuss ways to end the scourge of domestic violence that plagues our communities. “The rates of violence against women are so high [and] I’m sure we’re probably still double the provincial rate,” said Kendra Thomas, a communitybased victim services worker with Cowichan Women Against Violence Society. Statistics Canada reported that one out of four women in Canada experience violence every year. Shawnigan Lake RCMP recently reported incidences of domestic violence are noticeably high, and have seen a “significant rise” in the number of incidents in the South Cowichan community. Thomas said there has been some movement to battle the crime, but just not enough. “We’ve had a number of initiatives in the last several years,” she said. One was the designated domestic violence (DV) court in Duncan that started in March 2009. “It was a one-year, funded pilot project,” said Thomas. “The Crown [prosecutor] wanted to see the cases expedited because they tend to drag on and on and the number of case the Crown was seeing was astronomical.” The funding ran out long ago, but the domestic violence court continues to function, but it isn’t getting less busy.

Feral dogs remain at large around Cow Bay DANGER: Authorities urging common sense MIKE D’AMOUR CITIZEN

While they have managed to elude all attempts at capture, a clearer picture of a pair of bloodthirsty dogs is beginning to emerge. “I’m getting the feeling these dogs are feral,” said Brian Duncan, manager of the inspections and enforcement division of the Cowichan Valley Regional District. “You can’t play with these dogs, this is serious.” So far the pair of male dogs is described as black/tan markings, rottweiler/shepherd-crosses, one about 50 pounds, the other at least 10 pounds heavier, both with long bushy tails. The smaller dog is believed to be injured as it has been seen limping. During the last seven weeks or so, the hounds are believed responsible for killing several goats, numerous sheep and several chickens and cats, all in the Cowichan Bay area. And, said Duncan, if a farmer gets to them before they’re trapped, it probably won’t go well for the dogs. “If a farmer shoots them in the act, well, so be it,” he said. The dogs are roaming a wide area, from Cowichan Bay Road,

“We’re going to do whatever it takes, no matter how long it takes.” BRIAN DUNCAN, CVRD enforcement division

to Koksilah and Wilmot Roads, and Telegraph Road to the Trans Canada Highway. The dogs are known to return to the scenes of their crimes, and that’s where authorities have been setting traps — including one from Alberta that’s commonly used to trap cougars and wolves, using dead chickens, chicks — and even urine from a female dog in heat. So far the dogs have eluded capture. But Duncan said he’s not worried about the empty traps. “I’ve said from the beginning we have to be smarter than the dogs and we have to be patient and think farther ahead.” The dogs have some sort of “street smarts” that are helping them remain free, he said. “They usually don’t sleep in the same place twice and seem to bed down on the run,” he said. Still, Duncan vowed he will see the dogs trapped. “We’re going to do whatever it takes, no matter how long it

“All I’m asking is for people to use common sense,” he said. “If they have livestock and a place to put them at night, by all means do it, and if they feel

safe leaving their dog outside in a fenced yard, well that’s up to them.” Anyone who might see the dogs is asked to call 250-709-3786.

Police seek help in identifying fraudster SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

KEN EVANS YOUR VALLEY

DEALERSHIP

TOP SALESPERSON FOR MAY THANK YOU to all you wonderful people from the Cowichan Valley and as far away as Fort McMurray, who have trusted David “Ford” Faithfull to provide Safe, Reliable and Affordable transportation for your families for almost 25 years. “Support for Life, your one stop shop, Dave takes care of it all.”

North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man they believe might have made a fraudulent transaction at the Bank of Montreal’s Duncan branch on May 16. The unauthorized withdrawal of $500 occurred about 11:50 a.m. after a woman forgot to remove her card after using the bank machine. “A 67-year-old Duncan resident had used the ATM at the bank, but forgot to remove her card,” said North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP spokesman RCMP Cpl. Jon Stuart. “When she returned a few minutes later, there had already been an unauthorized withdrawal of $500 from her account.”

Mounties would like to identify the man who used the ATM right after the cardholder, and allegedly withdrew the funds from her account. The suspect is described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, with brown hair. “Police would like to remind people to be diligent when using an ATM or debit machine,” Stuart said. “ Safeguard your PIN, remember to remove your card after the transaction is complete, and monitor your account for any unexplained activity.” Those with information about this, or any other crime, are encouraged to contact the North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

When Jim Barker read last week’s Citizen story about family ties in the CVRD boardroom, he just had to tell his dad. “I rushed out to my father’s grave and I said to him, ‘did you know that they totally ignored us?’” he said with a laugh. It turns out that the Barker boys, father Doug and son Jim, have both sat at the CVRD board table. “I was on the regional board from 1988 to 1993 and my father was Mayor of Duncan before that, but served on the regional board as the City of Duncan’s representative,” Jim confirmed. An alderman for many years, records show Doug Barker spent 1985 on the CVRD board. Jim was Cobble Hill’s area director and spent 1992 and 1993 as board chair. “I think my father’s greatest fear was that I would sit across the table from him,” Jim said. “Politically we weren’t on the same side of the table.” His father’s claim to fame wasn’t his work at the CVRD board table but his work in the City of Duncan, Jim said.

“The City of Totems, that was his idea. That whole thing.” The younger Barker said a photo still hangs on his wall of the original totems. It was a gift presented to his dad by the city. “The other thing he did was start the summer festival. It used to be called the Festival of Flowers and Song,” Jim said. Nowadays there isn’t a “beauty contest” during the summer festival in Duncan but young women still vie for such titles as Lady of the Lake. Back in the day, however, Jim said it was women from the seniors’ centre that fought for the title of Ms. Cowichan Valley. “Ms. Cowichan Valley was an elderly lady who represented the Cowichan Valley so it was kind of cute,” he recalled. “Time marches on and things change.” The things Jim is most proud of during his time in politics are introducing 9-1-1 to the region and bringing transit to the district. So, while cool that alternate director Dave Darling and his father Earle Darling have carried on the tradition, history shows that the Barker boys were the first to accomplish the feat.

A new look on the horizon for James Street THE ROSSCO: Towering mixed-used building to replace Eddy’s Hockey Shop and two homes on the Garden Street corner MIKE D’AMOUR CITIZEN

It’s full steam ahead for the first bit of the revitalization set to take place on James Street and surrounding area. Ground has barely been broken on the Rossco, a multi-storey, $4.5 million commercial/condo development on the corner of James Street and Garden Street, but the developer said he expects to have stores in place and condo owners enjoying their new digs in about 12 months. “Yes, it will probably take a year to get it done,” said Mark Mitchell, president of Crosswind developments. Mitchell, a former owner of Eddy’s Hockey Shop — the land where the new development is being built — said he lived in the house beside the store and always enjoyed where he lived. “You can walk to the grocery store, or go to a restaurant and enjoy the walk home,” he said. “I love the location, and I hope other people will too,” he said. In 2011, North Cowichan council finally, after years of bandying it about, adopted a new Official Community Plan. The OCP identified the University Village area, which includes James Street, as one

Two homes have been picked up and carted away by movers and workers are preparing to level the old Eddy’s Hockey Shop at the corner of James and Garden Streets to make way for The Rossco, a four-storey multi-use development. [SUBMITTED; MIKE D’AMOUR/CITIZEN] of three growth centres. The Rossco, named for Mitchell’s dad, will be built on a 120 square-foot lot and will contain a mix of commercial and residential properties. “The bottom floor will have space for three

smaller shops,” Mitchell said. “I can see maybe a coffee shop, maybe a real estate office, an insurance business or what have you on the bottom floor.” The next three floors will all be condominiums, 17 of them, ranging in size from about

552 square feet, to more than 1000 square feet. Mitchell — who has already snagged one of the condos for himself — said he reckons the prices will be in the $200,000 to the $230,000 range. Check it out at www.therossco.com

Resources desperately needed for both offenders and victims From page 1 “DV court is every second Wednesday and it’s always full, the courtroom is always standing room only,” said Thomas, who noted there are a couple of programs available to the offenders. “But only once they’ve gone through the legal system,” she said. “One of the difficulties we have in this community is we don’t have an agency like ours where (offenders) can get service before police and the courts are involved.” Despite the number of violent incidents that occur in the Valley, there is no 24/7 phone line for women to call in case of emergency. The funding for that ran out long ago.

“Of course we still run a crisis line, it comes through our front desk and women still call in crisis” Thomas said, in a voice strained with frustration. “But we don’t have the funding to have the staff to meet that need.” During weekdays, victims of domestic abuse are urged to call 250-748-7000. After hours and on weekends, please call he Nanaimo-based Crisis Line that is staffed 24 hours a day: 1-888-494-3888. “At least by calling there people can connect with somebody in the moment and they can do some crisis intervention work and connect with resources and whatnot,” said Thomas, who criticized the fact the Valley doesn’t have a similar way to help. “It is an outrage and it’s one of the reasons

we’re reaching out to the community and putting together this workshop,” she said. Thomas said it’s vitally important that community members come forward at the workshop to talk about domestic violence. “We have a great representation of agency members coming to our workshop, but we’ve already been talking with each other.” The “Together Against Violence” workshop will include conversations such as: understanding barriers for women and young girls to report violence, developing responses that are supportive and create change, building on our strengths for individual responses, individual action that becomes social action, exploring actions taken in other communities, and

OUR VIEW

Community-wide change can end the violence E

nough, already. Enough. They are our sisters; our mothers, our aunts, nieces and wives. And the violence against them must stop. The Cowichan Valley has long had the miserable reputation as a hotbed for domestic violence — at times doubling the provincial average in numbers of incidents — and we must do anything and everything we can to bring it to an end. And yes, it is “we.” Much of the provincial funding that once helped establish programs to help Valley victims and their abusers has dried up.

Police resources are stretched to the point there is absolutely no wiggle room left. In the North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP detachment, a single officer is tasked with domestic violence cases. To say the load is staggering is a wicked understatement. We do not even have the funds to staff a 24-hour crisis line for women in dire need. Yes, we know sometimes men can be victims of domestic abuse, but the number of women who bear the bruises and cuts at the hands of the men they love eclipses that number.

ABOUT US

OTHER VIEWS

Frightened and battered women often don’t know where to turn for help, who to ask for guidance. We must ask why that situation exists. We can, of course, blame the government that spent billions on a Winter Olympics that benefitted only a few. We can dream about what could be done with just a fraction of that money, but wishing and dreaming will get us nowhere. We, as in we as a community, must put our heads together and come up with a made-in-the-Valley solution to the problem of

domestic abuse. We have to stop it before little boys who want to emulate their fathers grow into men, before little girls grow into young women who subconsciously seek out partners who remind them of their dads. We have an opportunity to do just that. On Wednesday, the Cowichan Women Against Violence Society will host “Together Against Violence,” a workshop to engage our community about the issues of violence against women here in the Cowichan Valley. Topics on the agenda include

Let’s get them dancing at the Duncan market

My vision is to have a tradition of babies, kids and adults dancing to live music at the Duncan Farmer’s Market. Musicians are encouraged to play danceable music and to encourage the little ones to get up and dance. Adults will soon join in. Or some adult dancers could invite babies and young kids to learn new dance steps. Parents can also encourage their shy children to get out and dance and the older children and adults will soon join in. Dancing will add another dimension to the live music and add to the fun atmosphere of the Farmer’s Market. The dancers love it as well as the grandparents who as spectators are reminded about their own kids now grown or their grandkids living in Ontario. We will know that a tradition has been established when the kids ask, “Is today the time to go dancing at the Farmer’s Market?”

We urge everyone in the strongest possible way to attend the meeting because we can no longer wait for the cops, the government or others to set things straight in our own backyard.

Regional District thumbs nose at taxpayers The CVRD board has again thumbed their noses at Cowichan taxpayers in approving the 2013 budget. The tax increases are two to eight times the rate of local inflation and brings spending increases in the past decade to more than 100 per cent when inflation was less than 25 per cent. Contrary to the nonsense from directors about “tough budget decisions” the biggest single increase again this year is in pay to themselves and the already well-paid 220 CVRD employees. More than 25 CVRD staff will collect over $100,000 in pay in 2013. At least $375,000 of new

taxes is going straight into employees and directors’ pockets this year added to the whopping $14 million wage bill. That doesn’t include the generous pay scale increases of up to 10 per cent that a number of CVRD employees will also be given. At the last minute this irresponsible board added to an already bloated 2013 budget by pork-barrel additions to grants in aid. The CVRD continually breaks its own policies by repeatedly giving money away to the same special interests year after year. This board allows themselves and employees to spend over $1,000 each and every day of the year on taxpayer paid meals, fancy hotels, conferences and

travel using the more than 50 CVRD credit cards issued to directors and employees. We recently heard about the $45,000 the directors spent on sending themselves to an irrelevant conference in the Maritimes. You can expect a repeat of this sort of behaviour again in 2013 because when it comes to spending the CVRD has shown it could care less about taxpayer’s interests. The CVRD simply adds spending year after year to everything they do without any real diligence on whether it’s wasted, of any real value or if someone else could do it cheaper. W.E.

Vancouver Island company worth its salt That was a great article on the Vancouver Island Salt Company last Friday. I use their salt all the time and I love it so it was good to learn who’s making it and how they do it. The salt’s great flavour and saltiness means I don’t use as much as other brands. I find that a $5 bag lasts two of us about two months — not expensive at all. Way to go guys! Mary Lowther Mesachie Lake

Community feedback plays an integral roll in Kerry Park plan

Have your say, Cowichan! Be part of our online poll This week’s question: What would you like to see done with the Kerry Park Recreation Centre? A) Only a basic fix B) A complete renovation C) I don’t care; I don’t use the facility Tell us what you think! To be part of our poll visit:

www.cowichanvalleycitizen.com Look for the results of this week’s poll question in next Friday’s edition of the Cowichan Valley Citizen.

Last week’s question: On May 31 we asked you: What makes it hardest to buy local food? A) Price 71% B) Quality 10% C) I can’t find it here 20%

Kerry Park is a valuable asset in our South Cowichan community; on that there is agreement. Now, what to do with this aging recreation centre? This is what we have asked South Cowichan residents over the last few weeks. Repairs to Kerry Park could continue to be approached piece by piece – at a growing cost to taxpayers – or through a retrofit of the facility that would require long-term borrowing. This spring, after talking to residents, users and businesses—some who were against any kind of repairs that might increase taxes and others who want to see Kerry Park expand significantly to include costly amenities, we were able to find agreement on a few key principles: 1.) Any repairs must take into account the cost to taxpayer 2.) Basic repairs are a must 3.) Need to make Kerry Park more than ‘just’ an ice rink and provide amenities that serve a broader range of people Based on this feedback, three options for repairs were presented: 1.) Basic repairs (electrical, mechanical, plumbing, seismic) – total borrowing cost of $9.4 million 2.) Basic repairs and change rooms – above, with new change rooms to the field side of the building – total borrowing cost of $12.3 million 3. ) Basic repairs and community space

– above (1 and 2), plus the addition of a dedicated seniors space, childminding, fitness area and multi purpose space for multi-age programs – total borrowing cost of $14.4 million Some good points were raised at the recent open houses. I’d like to address some of the questions we heard: Why not tear the building down and start from scratch? According to architect estimates, building new could cost $20-30 million. We didn’t feel this was a viable option due to the result of the 2009 referendum asking to borrow $25 million and community feedback around keeping taxes in check. Why are the basic repair costs so high? Kerry Park is almost 40 years old and faces major repair issues, including the replacement of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. You can take a video tour of the facility online at www. yourkerrypark.ca The bulk of the repair costs ($2.75 million) are for seismic upgrades. This was a voiced community concern, as the facility is a designated Emergency Reception Centre for South Cowichan. Why do you have to go to referendum? The regional district is legally mandated to ask for public support when borrowing long term. We are continuing to seek other funding options to keep any borrowing costs at a minimum. This includes gas tax grants, sponsorships, partnerships with private sector and fundraising efforts.

Kerry Park Rec Centre is in need of an overhaul. [CITIZEN FILE] The Kerry Park Commission will look to community feedback as it decides how best to move forward with ensuring the sustainability of the centre and balancing taxpayer concerns. It’s important to note that no matter what the commission decides, ongoing repairs and maintenance will continue at Kerry Park. Thank you to all the community members who participated in this process to date. Mike Croft Kerry Park Commission Chair

SAY FAREWELL TO AN OLD FRIEND

Thwarted rave attempt has police questioning parenting MIKE D’AMOUR CITIZEN

The old Chemainus River Bridge, adored by photographers, historians and many a passerby, will be closed starting June 11 so a new bridge can be built. The bridge will be closed to all traffic, including bikes, vehicles and pedestrians during construction, which is expected to last until Oct. 11. Sorry folks, you’ll have to take the long way around. [CITIZEN FILE]

Police and other authorities are still shaking their heads over an alcohol-fuelled high school bash not only condoned by some of the students’ parents, but planned by the adults as well. “Parents not only knew about it, it was arranged by some of them,” said Brian Duncan, manager of the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s inspections and enforcement division. Despite a warning not to go to Chemainus River Park last weekend, a couple of busloads — and several carloads — of students from a Victoria high school tried to have a “wet grad” at the popular Cowichan Valley site. Tipped off that the students were coming, Mounties greeted the wannabe revelers at the highway entrance to the park. The students were strongly advised to return to Victoria, which they apparently did. However, members of the RCMP went into the park and found that a music DJ and a large amount of alcohol were waiting for the students. Police said they are contem-

plating charges, but so far none have been levied against anyone involved in the event. However, the fact parents were involved frustrates police, who are often left to deal with the aftermath of such parties. “The notion that parents are willingly facilitating a rave in the middle of the bush, where no cell service exists, should be embarrassing,” North Cowichan/Duncan Sgt. Jack McNeill wrote in an email to Duncan. “The idea of an unsupervised rave with youth, drugs, alcohol and no means to call for help is a disaster waiting to happen, and we all know who is left to pick up the pieces.” Duncan said it was no surprise the revelers were from the Capital City. “Most of the people who frequent Chemainus River Park are from the Victoria area,” he said. “The locals know we’re patrolling it so they don’t bother. They go someplace else.” Duncan said it’s often visitors to our area who create a mess. “The CVRD does not tolerate these revelers who like to come up here and cut trees down and run

their ATVs all over and desecrate our parks then go home and not think twice about it,” he said. “There is zero tolerance for that kind of thing.” Duncan said the best way to deal with transient partiers is not let them even set up. “Once they set up and start drinking and we go in there and kick them out of the park, now we’ve got drunks on the road and we don’t want that. So we usually set up an information roadblock out at the highway and Hillcrest Road and anybody who drives in and looks like they’re ready to camp for the weekend, we just say, ‘Nope, you can’t do it.’” If the partiers give the authorities flack, well, they’re ready for that, too, said Duncan. “We tell them: ‘Look, go in another three miles and there’s another roadblock with armed conservation officers, park rangers and RCMP that will tell you the same thing and can forcibly turn you around.’ “Ninety-nine times out of 100, they turn around and go someplace else.” The RCMP is continuing to investigate the weekend incident.

Want to be heard by officials at the Municipality of North Cowichan? Be prepared to identify yourself. Council agreed to a policy on Wednesday evening whereby they will not consider anonymous communications “due to the inherent pitfalls” associated with nameless entities. Mayor Jon Lefebure explained the process that the municipality will undertake should council receive a nameless piece of correspondence. “I did ask staff what we would do if somebody sends an anonymous communication and we would tell them we don’t accept it,” said

the mayor. “And, if they then identify themselves then it solves that problem.” If they don’t the information simply isn’t considered. Coun. John Koury wanted to know what would happen if the municipality received an anonymous tip that suggested a threat to public security. “I do have one cautionary note that I want to raise,” Koury said. “There are, in my political experience, from time to time people in the public that put forward anonymous communications out of fear and it might be their own fear or for fear of retribution by someone or something that they’re complaining about or they might reveal some kind of clear

Wheelchair rugby tackling mobility challenges MURDERBALL: ‘Rough and tumble’ sport raises needed cash SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Duncan City Square morphs from a quaint spot to eat your lunch to a venue for “rough and tumble” wheel sports this Sunday, June 9 as the Cowichan Wheels Society hosts its ninth annual wheelchair rugby tournament. “This is a fun event that families can come out to enjoy, experience and learn,” said James Coleman, founder and chair of the Cowichan Wheels Society. “Wheelchair rugby is a great sport, and this tournament helps raise awareness of spinal cord injury and the way it impacts our daily lives by letting people get in the chairs and experience it themselves.” This year 16 teams will duke it out for the coveted Discovery Honda Cup. Spectators are welcome and encouraged to try the sport out on a third court, in a less competitive atmosphere. The day will be opened by the Cowichan Spirit Drummers at 10 a.m., after which play on the square’s two courts will begin backed by the live music of the McCandless Family band. Just Jakes, the Firehouse Wine Bar, and Tin Cup Coffee will all be on hand to help keep bellies full. A time-out will be called at noon sharp for a one-block walk and wheel led by local pipers and the tournament final is anticipated to take place at 1:45 p.m. Wheelchair rugby is a team sport for athletes with a disability. It is also known as “quad rugby” because players are required to have disabilities that include at least

some loss of function in at least three limbs, and most are medically classified as quadriplegic, Coleman explained, noting it was originally called “murderball: because it is a rough and tumble sport that is exciting to watch and fun to play.” The event is expected to raise an estimated $10,000 to support spinal cord injury research and local accessibility projects. This year, the plan is to contribute $3,000 to the City of Duncan to help initiate a proper wheelchair accessible railway crossing near the train station. “Cowichan Wheels is very pleased to be able to help the City of Duncan resolve this important accessibility issue in our community,” Coleman said. “We are encouraged that the city is looking at the issue, and hope this money will help them get it done.” Another $2,500 will be put toward paving the a disabled parking spot at the Cowichan Sportsplex in order to make it more practical and accessible for people with mobility challenges.

Bear cubs found on road suckling on dead mother

Jail time for captain after child porn conviction

Two orphaned bear cubs, rescued in Nanaimo, will spend the first year of their life at the North Island Wildlife Recovery Centre in Errington. They were discovered suckling on their mother, who had been struck and killed by a vehicle on the Nanaimo Parkway on Thursday. The pair bolted up a tree when a police officer pulled over to make sure they didn’t wander into traffic. It took the joint efforts of Nanaimo Fire Rescue and the B.C. Conservation Service to get the cubs down safely.

A Canadian Forces captain based at 19 Wing Comox has received a 90-day jail sentence and three years of probation for accessing and possessing child pornography. Capt. Glen Engebretson, 47, was sentenced Friday in Courtenay Provincial Court. Military police and members of the RCMP’s Internet Child Exploitation unit raided Engebretson’s Comox home in April 2010 and seized two computers. On the hard drives of those computers, investigators found deleted evidence of 122 images and 150 video files containing child pornography. Some of the videos were fragments of larger files.

Paper mill boss wonders where the workers are The Catalyst Paper Mill in Port Alberni has been through some rough times in the past few years, but as it recovers from its financial woes a looming labour shortage could be the next largest hurdle it has to clear. Alberni mill general manager Fred Chinn believes they are coming out the other side of their bankruptcy issues and will be stronger than ever, but first they have to figure out how to replace the skilled employees who are retiring on a regular basis from

the Port Alberni operation. “We have to educate people on the possibilities,” Chinn explained. “There are lots of jobs here that people don’t even know about.” He explained that when the layoffs hit in the 1990s, many of the younger workers were the first to go because they did not have enough seniority to keep their jobs. That left the mill with a workforce that consisted of mostly men of similar ages and experience levels. Now, a lot of those employees are ready to retire. Catalyst is now having a hard time attracting young skilled workers.

◆ SAYWARD

Lost tourist rescued after spending night outdoors The annual lost-hiker season has officially started. A large-scale over night search for a 54-year-old British man ended happily after he was found safe and sound near where he was reported lost. Police officers, firefighters, an RCMP helicopter, police dogs and local search and rescue personnel took part in the search. The RCMP say the man was reported missing Saturday afternoon, after he and his wife were separated in a forested area near Sayward. He was spotted by the helicopter which helped ground crews to find the man, who police say had appropriate food and clothing and was discovered in good health. Vancouver Island News Group

Strides made in the return of nearly extinct birds NEW VISITORS: Western bluebirds are making a comeback in the Cowichan Valley thanks to a dedicated crew of helpers SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Western bluebirds were pretty common on Vancouver Island until the early 1950s, when it is believed a rapidly shrinking Garry oak habitat and invasive birds drove them all away. “They are actually locally extinct,” confirmed Carolyn Masson, the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team’s communications coordinator. “They are a missing piece of our local ecosystems,” she said, but thanks to some dedicated volunteers, they are making a comeback. Last year —the first of a five-year project — four adult pairs and nine juveniles were transported to nestboxes in the Cowichan Garry Oak Preserve from the U.S. Army Lewis-McChord Base in Washington. This year in addition to those birds who chose to return to the area, another 10 pairs have been brought up from Washington in the hopes of continuing to grow the population. While the transporting of birds continues, the big news is the birds appear to be returning to the preserve of their own accord. “We now have three active nests,” Masson said. “Those first two now have seven eggs each and the females are incubating them and then another pair was formed, which

was really great news because there was a lone male that had migrated back with his two siblings…and he was singing by himself at the Cowichan Garry Oak Preserve for a couple of weeks.” He was lonely and needed a mate.

Last year, one of the first pairs built a nest and laid five eggs. Four hatched, and that family was seen around the Cowichan Valley all summer.

“It was very sad because there are so few bluebirds,” she said. “But one of the other females that had been translocated here from Washington found him. They have a nest now. I don’t know if we’ve seen eggs now or not.”

“Lakehouse” was designed by renowned architect R. Douglas James in 1929 after the original home was consumed by fire. The original home built by a Mr. James Clarke burned to the ground in 1927, while tenanted by a Major-General, F.G. Willock. At that time it had been owned by C.E. Bromilow who then sold it to Colonel J.H. Prichard of Cowichan Bay in 1928 (Pritchard Rd., Cowichan Bay) and he then hired architect Douglas James to design the new home which was then built by Mr. Lee. The original farmland off Stamps Road (named after a Mr. Stamps who farmed land in this area) was known by locals as “Ardlochan”. In 1938 Major-General Ernest and Lady Walker purchased the property. Later Mr. Ernest was to be knighted “Sir Ernest”. In 1945 the property was purchased by The H. Hulbert Hop Gardens Ltd. and in 1947 Mr. G.A. Glay and Mrs. W.M. Glay and Nettie M. Flom bought the property. Mr. & Mrs. Ormonde Granby Springford bought the property in 1954 and in 1989 the property was bought by Joe and Thia Swann and then sold in 2005 to Dr. Murray Woods and his wife Lia, the current owners.

Construction began in January and since then it’s been a steady stream of labourers working hard to make the new facility a reality for Lakers. Joy Adams Bauer, a VIRL communications officer said this week that the exterior of the building is very close to completion with work also progressing well on the interior. “This new purpose-built library will be more than twice as big as the current branch and will include: more public access computers, a lap top bar, study tables, and comfortable lounge seating,” she said.

The arrival of the first E&N passenger train in Lake Cowichan (Part 2) (The Chronicles is celebrating the 100th anniversary of this momentous day in the Lake’s history with a four-part series).

I

n 1902, 16 years after completion of the E&N Railway between Esquimalt and Nanaimo, businessmen of that mid-Island community and Vancouver were lobbying the CHRONICLES provincial governT.W. Paterson ment for links to Parksville, Courtenay, Alberni and beyond — all the way to the Island’s west coast at Barkley Sound. E.J. Palmer, manager of the Chemainusbased Victoria Lumber Co., said that his firm had offered to build a railway to Cowichan Lake without government subsidy. Nanaimo wasn’t pleased. Trust those Victoria businessmen, sniffed an editorial in the Free Press, to do all in their power to “influence the building of the road that way and to sidetrack Nanaimo. “The Victoria board of trade is a wide awake institution, and when its members undertake to secure the benefits of an enterprise which naturally belongs to Nanaimo they may succeed in making their contentions stick, if not checkmated in time. “The business men of Nanaimo know that if the road is built on such a line as will be of the greatest benefit to the West Coast of Vancouver Island, it will be built from Alberni to Nanaimo, and feeling cer-

We probably never would have had any railways ha it not been for immigrant workers such as this Chinese section gang. — Kaatza Station Museum tain of that they are apt to be a little too confident of the outcome. “Experience has taught the people of the coast cities of British Columbia that trade does not always flow through its natural channels. It can be caught by the exercise of energy and clever manipulation, and diverted... The Victoria board of trade is against us; it is putting forth its energies and manipulating to sidetrack us. Let us be up and doing.” So, how did it all come out? Nanaimo ultimately got its extensions of the E&N to Alberni and Courtenay.

For a time it appeared that Cowichan and its back-handed Victoria support for the Canadian Northern Pacific would prevail but no one had foreseen a devastating recession, the First World War or changing times followed by Great Depression. A line was completed from Patricia Bay and Sidney to Victoria and, as part of Canadian National Railways, later made its way to Nitinat (Kissinger) at the head of Cowichan Lake, with a shortline from Deerholme to Cowichan Bay, but tracks were never laid beyond as originally planned.

The E&N built an extension from Duncan’s Hayward Junction to Lake Cowichan but also failed to make it to the West Coast. Ironically, although trucks were beginning to replace trains — some of them using abandoned railway grades for roads — Lake Cowichan continues all these years later to lobby for a public highway to Alberni. Duncan businessman Harry Smith’s silver-lead prospect never materialized and Barkley Sound’s copper mines never achieved production, so there was no need for a smelter there. Henry Croft’s copper mine on Mount Sicker, and that of the competing Tyee Company, rich though they were, were short-lived. Without the anticipated Sicker ores, the Crofton smelter operated only sporadically until finally torn down. As noted, the Cowichan Valley did get two railways, both of which were meant to go on to Alberni. But neither of them made it and, after decades of services, their tracks were torn up. Today they’re an integral part of the Trans Canada/Cowichan Valley Trails. Such is the way of history. On May 1, 1905, ownership of the 78-milelong Island railway, the infamous E&N Land Grant (two million acres–almost a quarter of Vancouver Island–with water, timber and base mineral rights, tax free and still remembered as B.C.’s Great Train Robbery!), two steamships, a tugboat and the Ladysmith Water Co. passed from James Dunsmuir to the Canadian Pacific Railway.

‘Dunsmuir had no real idea of his land holdings’ worth’ From page 16 All this for just $2.33 million, Dunsmuir retaining the coal mines from which his family had made its incredible wealth, and mineral rights to the coal and fire clay. That the railway/steamship service accounted for almost half of the sale price clearly shows that Dunsmuir had no real idea of his land holdings’ worth. Nor, as it happened, did the CPR, at least not initial-

ly, but that’s another story. With its deeper pockets, the CPR set to work replacing high-maintenance wooden trestles with steel or with gravel-fill and culverts, going to heavier rail and better rolling stock, improving passenger service, promising to extend the Mainline through to Parksville and Port Alberni and, at long last (so far as Cowichan Valley residents were concerned), initiating a survey for an extension to Cowichan

Lake. In December 1906, Capt. C. Palmer, John Hirsch, PLS and a Mr. Nathan of the CPR began a preliminary survey from Duncan to Alberni. “There is no doubt that this road will be started in the near future and this may be the initial move,” the Cowichan Leader confidently predicted, having noted that the threesome was close-lipped but packed enough baggage for six months. They were followed, months later, by a

14-man party with instructions to make a detailed survey between Duncan and Lake Cowichan. This time the Leader was a little more tentative: “The valuable timber limits around Cowichan Lake would make the road profitable, and it is considered that in time it would be extended to some point on Barkley [sic] Sound.” (To be continued)

Keep eyes peeled for bluebirds From page 14 “They were finding what they needed here,” she said. “They were seen until late October and then it was assumed they migrated south to Oregon or California.” Masson called it “huge news” when three of those birds flew together back to Cowichan on their own this season. “They chose to come back to the Cowichan Garry Oak Preserve.” What it means is the birds are slowly but surely reestablishing themselves in the Valley. With the help of members from the Cowichan Naturalists’ Society, Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team technician Julia Daly monitors the birds closely through two bands on each leg. “We actually put meal worms out for them to boost their health and also to make them believe that this is the best place on Earth so that they’ll stay,” Masson explained. There’s still much work to be done, she cautioned. “There are still a lot of birds that we’ve released that we don’t know their whereabouts,” Masson said. “We really need the local people to be on the lookout. There might be a bird at their feeder or nesting in their yard somewhere and we’d really like to know about it so we can come check it out.” Western bluebirds are smaller than a robin. They don’t have a crested head like a blue jay. The female is light blue — quite inconspicuous — with the same kind of rusty breast as a male, which has a much brighter blue back. Report possible bluebird sightings to bluebird@goert.ca or 250383-3427. To learn more about the Bring Back the Bluebirds Project, see www.goert.ca/bluebird

Cowichan Valley Citizen | Friday, June 7, 2013

From How to Train Your Dragon to We Bought a Zoo, there is something for everybody this summer at the Crofton Old School Museum Field starting on June 22. [SUBMITTED]

Movies in the Park series returning to Crofton FREE FAMILY FUN: Any donations will go toward a skatepark SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Bring your blanket, grab your chair, pack the popcorn and whatever you do, don’t forget the kids. The Crofton Community Centre’s Movies in the Park series is back this summer. “This is a popular family oriented event that’s been on hiatus for a couple years and is back,” said Amelia Breckenridge, one of the organizers. “It’s free or by donation with any proceeds going towards a new skatepark,” she said. The six-movie series begins on June 22 with How to Train Your Dragon and carries on for five more summer Saturdays.

On July 6 The Princess Bride is showing. On July 20 it’s X-Men and on Aug. 10 a fanfavourite — Yogi Bear — is playing. Aug. 24 will feature Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom before the series concludes on Sept. 7 with Matt Damon and the gang in We Bought a Zoo. All shows are weather-dependent and begin at dusk (approximately 9 p.m.) So, pack your picnic baskets and head out to the Crofton Old School Museum Field (at Queen Street and Joan Avenue.) A concession will be on site for extra treats. “Even though the event is in Crofton, everyone in the Cowichan Valley is invited,” Breckenridge said.

On behalf of the community of Cowichan Bay, Cittaslow would like to offer heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in making the 5th Annual Spot Prawn Festival a roaring success. At Cittaslow, our mission is to celebrate quality of life for residents and visitors. Part of that is through celebrating our rich fishing history, craftsmanship and good food & drink. The event could never have happened without our generous sponsors and tireless volunteers, and most of all the residents and visitors who came out to celebrate our community and the festival. We, the community, would also like to thank those who so willingly gave of themselves at the Alexandra Morton fundraiser on May 18. Over $6,500 (net after expenses), was raised that evening to help further the attainment of Alex’s vision for a sustainable, disease-free, Pacific Coast wild salmon fishery. Well done everyone !!

Mel Zajac meet allows Stingrays to swim with some of the sport’s biggest stars for the Stingrays after her first year at Queen’s University in Ontario, and entered four races, collecting two personal bests and climbing in the rankings for two events. Natalia Garriock competed in six races and claimed four personal bests. She climbed in the rankings of five events, including a jump from 85th to 47th in the 200m individual medley. Her best finish was ninth in the 50m butterfly. Garriock also broke her own team records in the 50m and 100m fly. Laura Kissack set personal bests in each of her six races, and climbed in the rankings in five events, her biggest climb coming in the 100m backstroke, where she moved from 102nd to 75th, and the 100m fly, where she rose from 95th to 71st. Chelsea Langelo took part in five races, setting personal bests in three, and climbing in the rankings in all five. Langelo’s biggest move was in the 50m fly, from 83rd to 62nd.

Sonny honoured with renamed field KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

One of the great builders baseball in Crofton baseball, and a long-committed volunteer in the community, has received permanent recognition in the village he called home. Ron (Sonny) Collinson, was memorialized with the renaming of the Crofton baseball field last Friday, as his daughters, Sandra and Tracy, unveiled a sign dedicating the diamond in his name. Collinson passed away after suffering a stroke on April 17. The renaming of the field was announced at his celebration of life on May 19. Collinson was a well-known, lifelong resident of Crofton, said Sandra. “He grew up here, went to school here,

lived all his life here,” she related. “He worked 41 years at the [Catalyst] mill.” He also spent 35 years coaching baseball throughout the Cowichan Valley. “He was known for coaching, from Duncan to Ladysmith,” said Sandra. Collinson’s friends Gerry Hurst and Mike Rochon helped spearhead the effort to have the field rededicated in his name. Both men were on hand as Sandra and Tracy revealed the sign. The whole town turned out for Sonny’s celebration of life — “It was standing-room only,” said Sandra — and it was a similar situation last Friday, when dozens turned out from Crofton and Chemainus. “It’s nice to see this many people here,” said Sandra. “You know he’s watching us from the ball diamond in heaven.”

The Duncan Stingrays were in elite company at the Mel Zajac Jr. International swim meet in Vancouver late last month. Among the Olympians and international competitors at the University of British Columbia pool on May 24-26 were American stars Ryan Lochte, who won five medals, including two gold, in London last summer, and Elizabeth Beisel, who collected a silver and a bronze. “All of the higher-level swimmers were likely using this competition as a mid-cycle test leading into World Championships in a short six weeks,” said Stingrays head coach Leanne Sirup. “Our members, as well, were racing this competition mid-cycle and thus only had a couple of days of rest leading into this meet. Our goal going into this competition was to maintain the technical aspects from training and look for heat wins and thus climb the rankings.” Dominique Austin returned to compete

’Dogs put bite on Nanaimo KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Cowichan Bandits filled Chad’s shoes. [SUBMITTED]

‘Chad’ are world-beaters KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The African nation of Chad is currently 166th out of 207 countries in the FIFA World Rankings. They might want to recruit some Cowichan Valley kids to help improve their position. Representing Chad at the 2013 Mini World Cup soccer tournament in Parksville, the U11 Cowichan Bandits had a perfect record with four wins, beating out some international powerhouses. On the first day, Chad defeated Turkey (A.K.A. Comox) 2-0 on goals by Adyn Lamont and Nick Mendenhall, with Jake Dorby earning the shutout in goal. They also beat Costa Rica (Powell River) 5-1, thanks to two goals each from Finn Glass and Sophie Miranda and one from Lamont. On the second Day, Chad doubled up the Czech Republic (Campbell River) 6-3. Justin Marinier scored a hat trick, while Mendenhall, Glass and Peyton Moreside also found the back of the net. In their final game, Chad downed Austria (Alberni) 61, with Miranda scoring twice, and Glass, Marinier, Moreside and Shane MacLeod potting one apiece. “By Day 2, ‘Chad’ was playing so well they often had to ‘handicap’ themselves by playing shorthanded, but the team still managed to control the flow of the games,” said Ron Glass, who coached the team along with Derek Lamont. Other players on the team were Ben Williams, Raphael Park and Cam Stevens.

The pre-atom Cowichan Bulldogs got back in the win column and got some revenge at the same time as they beat the Nanaimo Lions 22-6 in a Greater Victoria Minor Football Association road game last Sunday. The win showed just how far the pre-atom ’Dogs have come this spring. “Our season started slow with a loss to the Lions, but the team has really pulled together, and as we near the end we wish we were just getting started,” said coach Devon Lawrence. Cowichan started in excellent form as they marched the ball down the field on their first possession, finishing up with a touchdown by running back Treyton McCuaig-Jones. The Bulldogs defence matched the offence’s effort, shutting down the Lions’ first scoring attempt with a quick two-and-out led by guard Hunter Fenn. The Cowichan defence held the Lions to just 30 yards in the game. Outside linebacker Kaylum Billings caused several losses of yards by getting in on behind-the-line tackles. On offence, Jack Napier-Ganley scored the first of his two touchdowns behind the blocking of Jeevan Nijjar, and caught a pass for his second major. The second half saw running backs James Morton and Jaxson Jones both come close to the end zone, while the Cowichan defence kept pushing the Lions back, eventually scoring a safety when McCuaig-Jones sacked the Nanaimo quarterback in his own end zone. Linebacker Sawyer Ellison made sure none of the Lions got past the fiveyard mark, and Max Vaesen made some huge tackles of his own. “It is the combination of practice and drive that has made our defence a force to be feared amongst the pre-atom teams,” said Lawrence. The pee wee Bulldogs collected their fourth straight shutout and have scored 132 unanswered points in that span after a 42-0 win over the Nanaimo Redmen. With Cowichan shutting down their ground game, the Redmen tried to go to the air, but couldn’t do that either, thanks to plenty of pressure from the Bulldogs defensive line and superior coverage from the defensive backs, Hunter Miller in particular. Linemen Ryan Haywood and Dennis McDonnell led the defensive charge, and

Treyton McCuaig-Jones of the pre-atom ’Dogs runs through the Lions’ defence. [SUBMITTED] Brayden Belton came up with a pair of sacks and a handful of tackles. The Cowichan offensive line overpowered the Redmen defence from the start, led by centre Logan Swanson, while Dalin Koons and Amy Swanson made key blocks. Offensive tackle Bradley Wilson opened holes on the line that coach Trent Jones described as “big enough to drive a bus through.” Quarterback Rieley Zarate completed three of five pass attempts, including two that Damian McCuaig-Jones took in for touchdowns. McCuaig-Jones ran for his third major late in the first half, with Owen Kirk nailing the extra point. Bailey Lamont rumbled over the Nanaimo defence throughout the day and finished with 100 rushing yards and two touchdowns, while Jake Paras also scored. “This was by far the best team effort I have seen from this group of kids,” said the coach. “The team is playing outstanding football, but will have to keep working hard because there is always room for improvement.” The atom Bulldogs lost a close one as the Nanaimo Bombers evened up their season series.

Both teams played tough football in the first half, and Cowichan gained valuable ground on a catch-and-run play to William (Wild Bill) Hardman, but huge defensive plays on both sides — including spectacular work from the Bulldogs’ Boston Hardy and Felix Wilson — kept the game scoreless. The Bombers took advantage of a broken play in the third quarter to score, but Cowichan’s defence made Nanaimo fight hard for every yard, exemplified by the work of nose guard Liam Hennig. The Bombers scored again on a broken play in the fourth quarter, but Cowichan’s Rhys Smiley returned the ball more than 80 yards to score his team’s only touchdown of the game. “Despite the final score, the Cowichan atoms played well and played as a team,” said coach Jeff McDonald. “The coordination between the players was great. Many players played through out the swelter and for that were unsung heroes. Both Cam Wright and Hudson Spencer played their hearts out, as did everyone.” All three Cowichan teams will close out the regular season with games against Sooke in Langford this Sunday.

Teams continued to jockey for playoff positioning as the Cowichan Women’s Football League played its last full weekend of regular-season games. Last Friday evening, the Ravens quenched the Wildfire 40-6, while the Roofco Sirens upset the Blue Steel Brew 21-14. The Ravens got two touchdowns each from Dana Thorne and Jamie Russell, and one each from Emily Williams and Rikki Wylie. Williams added a pair of converts and Russell had one, while Wylie made one of her two interceptions on a Wildfire convert attempt and ran it back 100 yards for a single point. Brittany Williams and Morgan Rogers also recorded interceptions of their own. The Wildfire’s lone touchdown came from Marika Richard. Haley Atchison and Ginette Bilina had sacks, and Dieneke Pedersen grabbed an interception. The Sirens got two of their three touchdowns off interceptions, as Carmen Brown and Deanne Mearns scored on defence. Shelly McKay had the other touchdown, and added an interception of her own for good measure. Lenneke Vinoly also recorded a pick, and Jessica Kato-Koch had four sacks. On Sunday, Moo’s Law defeated the Wildfire 52-13, the Matrix beat the Ravens 26-12, and the Crew shut down the Sirens 52-6. The Law got their touchdowns from Zazil Martinez and Marika Richard, with a con-

vert from Pedersen and a sack from Atchison. The Law’s stats were not available. Scoring for the Matrix were Baljinder Irvine-Manj, Gloria Locke, Emily Verbruggen and Marcie Welcher, with Verbruggen and Welcher adding converts. The Ravens got a touchdown and two picks from Wylie, while Barbara Smith added a major. The Crew didn’t provide stats for their victory, but the Sirens’ touchdown came courtesy of Mearns, while Brown had another interception and Kato-Koch had a sack and a safety. The final regular season games will be played this Friday evening, with much yet to be decided. At 9-2, the Crew have first place locked up, but the Ravens and Law are tied for second at 7-4, and the Blue Steel and Matrix are close behind at 6-5. The Sirens are 2-9, and could still move ahead of the 2-10 Wildfire if they can upset the Law. After the regular season wraps up this Friday, quarterfinals go on Sunday, semifinals are next Sunday, and the finals are on Saturday, June 15.

Are you ready to Shuffle through Chemainus? KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Less than two weeks remain until the 29th running of the Chemainus Legion Twilight Shuffle 5K on June 18, but it isn’t too late to register. Online registration for the unique evening road race is open at raceonline.ca, and in-person registration can be done at the

Chemainus Legion on race day, right up until the race begins. Created by Chemainus native Phil Nicholls — who would go on to win the Royal Victoria Marathon and be ranked nationally — and his mother Lorna, the Twilight Shuffle has maintained strong ties to the Legion since its debut, with volunteers from the Legion making the event possible.

Funds raised go to a variety of local causes, including bursaries at Chemainus Secondary School As many as 1,000 entrants have run the race through the streets of Chemainus, including Olympians and world-class triathletes. Still, the race maintains a local profile, attracting runners and walkers of all abilities. “We don’t use a high-paid race

director and don’t have a huge corporate sponsor,” said Nicholls, proudly. “Plus, there are a lot of trendy athletic events now. I ensure an accurate course, a race like I have always run, and in the end, community is what it is about. We will always strive to be better.” For more information, contact Phil Nicholls at 250-595-2378.

Hopwo gives his notice at eponymous tournament KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The namesake of the Hopwo Baseball Tournament announced that this is his last year as president of the Chemainus Baseball Association at the tournament last weekend, but it remains to be seen if that will hold up. “Larry announced on the weekend that he is retiring this year,” said Phil Simpson, the association’s vice president and Hopwo’s appointed successor. “He has tried before, but I think this time he is serious.” The mosquito-age tournament has honoured Larry Hopwo for nine years, but his commitment to the association goes back much farther than that. “I don’t think we would have Chemainus ball if not for him,” said Simpson. “He has kind of single-handedly kept things together up here.” Chemainus didn’t have the numbers to field a mosquito team of their own this year, but pushed ahead with the seven-team tournament regardless, inviting four squads from Duncan, and one each from Saltspring Island, Parksville and Comox. “It went really well,” said Simpson. “The weather cleared up for us, and the pancake breakfast went off really well.” The top three spots in the tournament were taken by Duncan teams. The Rockies beat the Pirates 9-2 in the battle for first place, while the Duncan Blue Jays edged Saltspring 5-4 for third. Comox was selected as the Most Sportsmanlike Team.

WOODWARD, Iva Ruth December 23, 1921 - May 31, 2013

Bill passed away peacefully Tuesday morning surrounded by family. Bill leaves his family to mourn him: Wife Kathy Edwards, son CJ (Kerri) daughter Kela, step-children Michelle, Melissa (Andy) Matthew, and Mark; along with grandchildren, Sydney, Isabella, Ethan and Athena, sister Vicki (Bob Hodes) nephews Mike Hodes (Jamie) and Robert Farrel (Lori) and Mother Julia. Bill lived an exciting life serving in the US Marine Corp, followed by working as a scuba instructor in throughout the Hawaii Islands, then travelling the world as a contractor, finally settling down as much as Bill would in Canada starting his own contracting business, still managing time to travel to many more exotic locations. Thank you to Dr. Malherbe and the staff at CDH 2nd floor for their care and support. In lieu of flowers, hug your family and tell them you love them. The family would be pleased to have friends join us in the garden of our home, 17 North Shore Rd, Lake Cowichan on June 9th from 2pm - 4 pm to remember Bill.

As you share the stories and the memories of how they lived their lives and how very much they meant, may you find comfort...

Ferris, I. Henriette Passed away peacefully in Duncan on June 1st, 2013. A woman of fortitude, gentleness, humility, playfulness and deep ‘inner knowing’, she cannot be summed up in a word. She was loving, proud, loyal, appreciative, wise, hard-working, determined, respectful, strong, compassionate and sensitive. She prevailed through many trials in her life, but she always came through them by saying, 'We can always learn from our experiences.' She encouraged laughter and sought wisdom of others, when, in fact, she was the source of wisdom for many whom she met. She did not suffer fools gladly, yet she was respectful of others’ beliefs and values, as equality and fairness were important to her. She will be deeply missed by many, but especially her children: Margaret, Heather, Brian, Shirley, Jenny, their spouses and all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. A celebration of her life will be held on July 5th at 10 am in the hall of the United Church, 246 Ingram Street, Duncan. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Cowichan Hospital Fund or a charity of your choice in Henriette’s name.

Bella Michaud (December 7, 1909 – June 5, 2013) The family of Bella Michaud are sad to advise that our beloved mother passed away peacefully with family at her bedside Cairnsmore Place in Duncan on June 5, 2013. Mom was born December 7, 1909 in St. Eustache, Manitoba to Alphonse Lamontagne and Emma Desrochers. She was one of fifteen children. The family moved to Dumas, Saskatchewan in 1915. She and her first husband, Orphir Beauchesne, had six children. They moved to Victoria, BC in 1946 and to Duncan in 1951, where they operated a restaurant in the Commercial Hotel. She was predeceased in 1953 by Orphir and in 1998 by her second husband, Lucien Michaud. She was also predeceased by her parents, ten brothers, three sisters, her daughters, Bernadette Kueber and Esther Campbell, her son, Albert, and her three sonin-laws, Bernard and Joseph Kueber and Bruce Campbell. Mom (Memere) is survived by her daughter Janet Kueber, two sons, Hector Beauchesne (Donna) and Ernest Beauchesne (Moira), her sister, Lou McLean, twenty grandchildren, thirty-seven great grandchildren, eight great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. The family greatly appreciates the care Mom received over the years from Dr. Pullan and Dr. Thompson and Home Support staff, and more recently from second floor nursing staff at the Cowichan District Hospital and staff at Cairnsmore Place. Mom maintained a positive outlook throughout the ups and downs of her life. Her cheerful attitude and constant devotion to family and faith, was a wonderful example to all of us. She was much loved and will be greatly missed by family and friends. Prayers will be offered at St. Edward’s Church, 2085 Maple Bay Road, Duncan, BC at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, June 12, 2013. A funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Edward’s Church on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 11:00 am. Our thanks to Father Alfredo. Donation in Mom’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice.

It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to our dear aunt and sister as we celebrate the wonderful life she had. Auntie Iva was the oldest of 5 children and is predeceased by her brother Lorne Woodward, sisters Jean Knight and Marion Kasha and dear friends Vi Clement and Eleanor Blamey. She is survived by sister Margaret Grosland (Emery), brother-in-law Ron Kasha, nieces Denta Persinger (Don) Lynne Pavlik (Doug) Karolee Zawislak (Larry) Roberta Strangways (Paul) nephews Scott Woodward (Sheryl) Kevin Kasha (Kim) Keith Kasha, Kent Kasha (Linda) and their children and grandchildren. Auntie Iva was born in Lamont, Alberta and after finishing grade 12 she went on to Normal school to become a teacher. She then taught the next 4 years in Northern Alberta. In 1946, she moved to Vancouver to take her training in social work with the BC Government and after completion, moved to Duncan and started her career. She moved up the ladder to Supervisor and eventually Regional manager which included 10 Island offices Duncan north. Auntie Iva worked for 35 years and retired in 1981. She spent many happy retirement years with family and friends of all ages. She loved “The Midgard” and enjoyed cruising the B.C. waters. She was most content at home at Cherry Point where she lived for over 50 years and had many friends in the Cowichan Valley area. We all enjoyed her quick wit and sense of humour. She was always game for anything and loved to sit, visit and reminisce. In 2006, she moved to Victoria to be closer to family where she enjoyed her home and all her friends at The Wellesley. Our family would like to thank all the doctors, staff and caregivers that made Auntie Iva’s life so full and enabled her to keep and enjoy her independence. A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 at 2:30pm in The Magnolia room at the Wellesley, 2800 Nanaimo Street, Victoria, B.C. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to Heart & Stroke Foundation, #106-1001 Cloverdale Avenue, Victoria BC V8X 4C9 or Victoria Hospice Society, 4th floor-1952 Bay Street, Victoria BC V8R 1J8. 272213
