Sexual assault trial begins for physiotherapist DUNCAN: Campbell Crichton faces 22 charges KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Infrastructure know they were furious at the removal of their rural camera. For Ian Morrison, regional director for Area F, the highway cam is a lifeline for his constituents in winter, a lifeline he was ready to fight for. See SWITCH FLIPPED, Page 9

Crown counsel called its first of an expected 31 witnesses on Wednesday as the sexual assault trial of physiotherapist Campbell Crichton got under way in Duncan. Crichton, 54, is facing 22 sexual assault charges dating over his 19year career as a physiotherapist in the Cowichan Valley, from 1992 to 2011. His trial before Judge Keith Bracken is scheduled to last until at least July 10. He was initially charged on March 25, 2011 with five counts of sexual assault between 1996 and 2009. Those numbers grew as more alleged victims came forward. Crown prosecutor Leah Fontaine was pleased to finally begin the trial more than three years after the first charges were laid. “We’re happy we’re proceeding now and giving these women a chance to tell their stories,” she said outside the courtroom on Wednesday morning. The 31 witnesses are expected to include Crichton’s 22 alleged victims. Charges had been laid in a 23rd case, but the complainant died in a car accident last year, and the Crown has opted not to

pursue the charges. The first witness called on Wednesday, whose name is protected by a publication ban, was among those who came forward to police after reading about the initial charges. She was asked why she hadn’t said anything at the time the alleged assaults took place. “I had never been to a physiotherapist before,” she said. “Going to a professional physiotherapist, you think they will treat you how they are supposed to treat you. At that age, you don’t know.” The witness testified she had been in a car accident in late 1994 when she was 17 years old, and began physical therapy in 1995. She stated that Crichton touched her inappropriately over three visits to his Gibbins Road practice, after which she stopped going. Crichton’s defence lawyer, Michelle Daneliuk, however, produced documents, including a signed affidavit from 1999, showing she had attended 25 appointments with Crichton. The witness said she couldn’t recall if that was accurate or not. The trial was expected to resume Thursday and Friday with further witness testimony.

Decision on cutting school board size expected soon LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

The Cowichan Valley could know as early as the end of June if the number of trustees is to be cut from the current nine. Trustee Mike McKay told a meeting Wednesday, June 18, “there will certainly be a decision soon, probably by the end of June or early July and it’ll be earlier rather than later.” McKay will not make the decision. Any cuts would be made by Education Minister Peter Fassbender. The district called the meeting to hear public comment on the idea of reducing the number of trustees. Only about 15 people turned out, with about a third of that number made up of people who had served as trustees in recent years.

McKay took over July 1, 2012 after the elected board sent in a deficit budget triggering the provincial government to firing them and replace them with a trustee. He pointed out that, as a new board will be elected in the general municipal election on Nov. 15, people who might want to run for trustee should know soon if there is any decision to change the number of trustees. Only the minister can make that decision and his options are for a board of five, seven or nine trustees, McKay said. The idea of cutting the size of the board has been suggested and rebuffed more than once at the board table but is coming up again now because the public has expressed interest in the idea, McKay said. A ward system introduced when

Trustee Mike McKay the district was formed after the amalgamation of the Cowichan and Lake Cowichan districts ran from 1996 to 2002, and since then elections have been held district-wide. McKay said that during consultations on restructuring the district in the past year he had discovered

there was a desire among certain members of the public to see the size of the board reduced as parents were asking about ways to save money and make the school board more efficient. “I passed that information along to the minister,” he said, pointing out that the district parent advisory council had also written a letter at that time in support of cutting the board’s numbers. “I will make no recommendation myself to the minister. He’s sensitive, though, that this can’t wait too long. There are people who are considering standing for election,” McKay said. Caroline Kirman, DPAC president, said the question about saving money by cutting the size of the board comes up in her group every year, even though it is known that trustees are the

most poorly paid employees of the school district. Mary Dolan said “there is no point in saving money if trustees can’t fulfill their responsibilities” and wondered if a reduced board could do all the work. McKay said when he moved from Saanich to Surrey he found the huge Surrey district actually got by with fewer committees and shorter board meetings than Saanich, showing that some boards have traditional ways of doing things that may not be actually related to effective governance. Kirman suggested that some of the new time-saving practices introduced during McKay’s tenure could be implemented. Anyone who wants to share their thoughts for McKay to forward to the minister can send them to officialtrustee@sd79.bc.ca

Theft prompts RCMP warning to keep valuables out of sight

Lake Cowichan RCMP hunting for stolen golf bag

After a theft from a vehicle in Mill Bay, Shawnigan Lake RCMP are advising residents of the area to keep their eyes open for similar incidents. “In recent years Mill Bay has experienced similar thefts from motor vehicles where keys, and or garage door openers are stolen, which the thieves can then use to gain access to the vehicle owners house,” Const. Kevin Hopkinson said. “Police would like to remind residents to make sure valuables, and any means of house access are stored out of sight.” Anyone with information about thefts, or who sees any suspicious activity should call the Shawnigan Lake RCMP at 250-743-5514.

RCMP in Lake Cowichan are trying to track down a stolen golf bag. The black and grey Wilson brand bag full of clubs and other assorted equipment was snatched out of the back of a black Chevrolet pickup truck sometime after 5:30 p.m. on May 24, somewhere between the March Meadows Golf Club in Honeymoon Bay and the Riverside Inn in Lake Cowichan. Anyone with information should contact the Lake Cowichan RCMP at 250-749-6668. Or you can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). If you province information leading to an arrest and charge you may be eligible for a reward. Kevin Rothbauer, Citizen

Enzo joins force as cops’ new canine colleague KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The latest addition to the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP complement bears little resemblance to his colleagues. Enzo is the new Police Service Dog with the detachment, serving alongside his handler, Const. Garfield Henderson. A purebred German shepherd, Enzo was born in Innisfail, Alberta, as part of the RCMP dog-breeding program. He is just over two years old and is trained for a range of duties, including tracking, searching, and criminal apprehension. Enzo and Henderson became a fully operational Police Service Dog team in March following an intensive dog/handler validation process. Police Service Dogs specialize in searching for either drugs or explosives, and Enzo’s specialty is drugs. “Enzo is Const. Henderson’s second fully trained Police Service Dog,” Cpl. Jon Stuart related. “Most dogs go into training around the age of two, and the service life of a Police Service Dog is about seven years. Enzo was labelled as a ‘high flier’, and was the strongest dog in his litter.” Henderson and Enzo have been serving the North Cowichan/Duncan detachment

Residents of North Cowichan and Duncan will have a better feel for what their local police are up to with the addition of a new siren to the fleet. The detachment has started using the “Rumbler Siren” to enhance safety during emergency calls, adding to the effect of a regular siren. “The Rumbler acts similar to a subwoofer, utilizing low frequency tones that penetrate hard surfaces better than the higher pitch of the regular siren,” Sgt. Chris Swain said. “Drivers and pedestrians will be able to both hear and feel the police vehicle coming.” Swain explained that there are several reasons for employing the Rumbler.

“Due to better sound insulation in newer vehicles, the use of vehicle stereo systems, and pedestrians/bicyclists wearing headphones, this technology will assist in making everyone using our roads safer,” he said. “Police vehicles will still be using their regular sirens, but can activate the Rumbler at the same time, if required.” In recent years there have been at least two instances where vehicles from the detachment were involved in accidents while rushing to emergencies. “North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP and the municipalities we police are committed to doing everything we can to make our roads and our responses to emergencies as safe as we can for everybody using them,” Swain said.

District aims for year-round use of Chemainus wells LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

The municipality of North Cowichan is applying to amend a BC Environmental Assessment Certificate to use the controversial Chemainus Wells year round. Council voted at its June 4 meeting to start what Mayor Jon Lefebure described as “a fairly onerous process”. The municipality is going to tread warily as a strong reaction by the Halalt Nation to the construction of North Cowichan’s Chemainus Wells saw the question end up in the Supreme Court of Canada. Municipal CAO D ave Devana explained that they’re considering yearround use of the wells because the alternative would cost a lot of taxpayer dollars. “Island Health is going to require us to put in UV protection at our Holyoak Lake/Banon Creek system, which will add significant costs. We believe, and we have to start the process, that we can demonstrate that the Chemainus well water, which is excellent water, will be able to provide for the needs of Chemainus all year round,” he said. The municipality will have to go through an environmental assessment process, and Devana said they’ve already had a first meeting with the Halalt band. Coun. Al Siebring was concerned about the Halalt reaction to the process.

Mayor Jon Lefebure “We’ve been to cour t already once over this. Do we have any sense that we can talk about publicly at least about the Halalt position on this latest development?” he asked. “All I can say is we met with the Chief and some of their key representatives a couple of weeks ago,” Devana replied. “We were very open and transparent about what our intentions were, what the process might look like and that we were going to apply. We have indicated to them that we do have a mitigation strategy in the event that there is any harm to the aquifer or the river flow levels.” The strategy involves taking Holyoak Lake water and putting it upstream in equal amounts to the water North Cowichan would be taking out downstream. “They [the Halalt Nation] seemed open but we don’t know until we start the process and do the proper studies,” he said. “Hopefully we don’t make any

of the mistakes we made last time and keep them well informed this time. Hopefully this thing will go smoother than it went last time. But in the end it’s up to the minister and the EAO to decide.” Lefebure ag reed that everything is up in the air. “The Chief said right up front that this was just an information meeting, that was the stage we were at,” he said. Coun. Ruth Hartmann also wanted to know what a UV filtration system would cost to build and municipal engineer John MacKay told her it would be at least $10 million in capital costs alone. Devana added that Island Health has been flexible with the municipality so far but the cost would be high when maintenance was factored in as well. That brought discussion around to who’s paying. “It’s a water system, funded by the Chemainus water users. It’s not like the municipality as a whole can fund this. If we were forced to go to that UV protection we would be having to look to federal or provincial support to ease the burden on the Chemainus water user base,” Devana said. Coun. Jennifer Woike, concerned about costs for the water users, said, “If this ever came to this, I would hope council of the day would look at a public-private par tnership project.”

OUR VIEW

Next federal election a pipeline showdown A

s most expected, the federal government announced its conditional approval to Enbridge’s proposal to build the Northern Gateway pipeline on Tuesday. Enbridge must still meet 209 conditions in order to build the $7 billion project that would send northern Alberta bitumen through to a new super-tanker port at Kitimat. And, of course, there’s the litany of opponents who were quick to issue their own pronouncements against the pipeline, including promises to fight the development with all their might.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made no secret of his government’s financial vision for Canada, the backbone of which is transporting Alberta crude to one of three coasts for shipment overseas. Energy East, which would head from Alberta eastward through Quebec to New Brunswick on the Atlantic Ocean, the Keystone XL Pipeline through the central United States to the Gulf of Mexico and Northern Gateway are major planks in this administration’s future economic platform. Immediately, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal

ABOUT US

OTHER VIEWS

leader Justin Trudeau vowed that Northern Gateway would not happen should either of them form government in 2015. Many First Nations officials also objected, though a secondary proposal to construct the pipeline by the Aquilini Group and Eagle Spirit Energy, comprised of several First Nations, was brought forward in April. Thus the battle lines are drawn. We know what the next election will be focused on. Without question, the 2015 election will be fought over Northern Gateway. A vote for the Conservatives

is a vote for the pipeline. A vote for the NDP or Liberals is a vote against. Interestingly enough, most political pundits agree that provincial NDP leader Adrian Dix effectively blew last year’s election over his mid-stump pronouncement against the twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline to Vancouver. It is strongly believed that Dix lost the support of his traditional labour support instantly. Online polling is a dubious marker of true public opinion, and increasingly becomes an unreliable gauge of true public

Regarding Sharon Jackson’s comments on June 11, 2014. I am not one to comment on stuff in the paper. I believe this is my first time. Do we live in a democracy or do all the counsellors have one voice? I don’t see the reason to attack an opposing view on any issue. It allows for healthy debate. Is it not Sharon who is running to the paper? Mr. Barker is just sharing an opinion and no one has to agree with it, but it is nice to hear or read another side before you make a decision on an issue. Sharon is free to disagree, but her attack seems a little out there. Really, eating babies, what a terrible image to get your point across.

sentiment. Recent elections have proven that. With professional fundraisers, an influx of financial backing from the U.S. and media-savvy special interest groups involved, it is very difficult to determine if the majority of British Columbians are for or against this pipeline. We will hear much about it, for and against, in the next year and a half, and then it’s off to the polls. There is much at stake, including the jobs of many Vancouver Islanders. The pipeline vote is about our future.

Barker has every right to his opinion Shocking sentence for Cobble Hill driver I am very impressed with the sense of generosity and forgiveness by Mrs. Little’s daughter Susan. However, reading the comments by Judge Sue Wishart I thought that the judge was going to throw away the keys, instead a soft slap on the wrist. When you examine [Owen] Kelly’s lengthy list of driving offences it appears that he is a man who just doesn’t give a damn and has no fear of consequences. And Judge Wishart has proved to him that it’s okay. I imagine the police must be highly frustrated, all those offences over more than 20 years,

causing the death of a human being and Kelly gets off. If Kelly was genuinely remorseful he would have stopped driving immediately after Mrs. Little’s death. To be caught that many times by the police Kelly must have committed hundreds of traffic violations. It’s worth noting that Mrs. Little could have reasonably expected to live another 20 years. Not bad, 21 days for stealing 20 years. One has to ask, what kind of message does this give to other drivers who are reckless like Mr. Kelly? The answer is “no worry”.

N. Cowichan should stop spending on pet projects

Rob Robinson Chemainus

V. Dobson Duncan

Regarding the letter to the editor “North Cowichan property tax increases are intolerable”, I totally agree with Christoper Paton-Gay and Alex Currie that property taxes have increased far too much. Spending on “pet projects” and non-necessities needs to stop, including the so-called Climate Action Plan as carbon dioxide (CO2) is one of the essential gases for life on this planet. If we want to get rid of CO2, we could all just STOP BREATHING!

After some reflection, I would like to say that Councillor Barker has every right to his opinion on GMOs. Because I and the other members of council do not agree with him does not mean I have the right to ridicule him personally. I should have stuck to the issue at hand. As it turns out, the paper approached him, not the other way around. Sharon Jackson Duncan

Government responsible for teachers’ strike I am amazed at the number of people I hear blaming the teachers for the current labour dispute. Have they been living on a windswept crag? Surely atop even the most remote peak they can now get a Wi-Fi connection? Every news media has reported over the last year how the BCTF went to court and proved that the B.C. government has spent the last dozen years violating the workload language they agreed to in collective bargaining. The teachers gave up wage increases for smaller class sizes and the government broke their promise. Now, despite the ruling of the court, Minister Fassbender and his co-conspirators are refusing to correct their wrongdoing. Should we be surprised? When the Hospital Employees Union bargained workload language the government ignored it. When they bargained contracting out language that was ignored as well. The courts ruled that the violations of the HEU collective agreement were illegal, but that is small comfort to those workers who never got their jobs back. Go to a hospital today and see if the washrooms are as clean as they were before Gordon Campbell and Christy Clark urinated

on a signed contract. Is it only a coincidence that since the privatization of hospital cleanliness that the rates of c difficile and other infections have become epidemic? The Liberal government have applied the same labour relations methods to our public school system as well. How should we expect this to work? The teachers are standing up for themselves, but they are also standing up for our children. We need to support their demand for smaller class sizes, so that every child can get the attention he or she needs to learn. We can’t all afford $1,500 a month per child for a private school with a reasonable teacher/student ratio. We need to let this government know that they are not fooling the taxpayer. The office number for Education Minister Fassbender is 250-387-1977. Let him know that he will be held personally responsible. Premier Clark has an office number as well. She can be reached at 250-387-1715. Her email is premier@gov.bc.ca When you call, please remember that the person who answers the phone is a working person doing their job. Be polite.

David Lowther Mesachie Lake

As a resident here in Duncan, I felt the need to write you and let you know that I am disappointed that you chose to do an entire article on Barker for being against the GMO issue instead of celebrating such an obvious victory that our little town is making such a positive impact. How dare he even go as far as to say that activists may use us as an example — something I would be very proud of! I hope every other town on Vancouver Island follows suit and than the mainland and the rest of our country. There is overwhelming evidence to support the GMO science experiment has too many

I stand behind our council 100 per cent and I hope you choose to write another story — a positive one, with real facts about genetic engineering and its downfalls instead of an article that seems to imply you want everyone to think the council made a bad decision. Even your poll is slanted. The only option for yes is “yes” but the other two options are far more detailed and both seem to be for the GMO argument. Wouldn’t it have been more fair to put, “Yes! Genetically modified foods are a danger to our health and the environment!” instead of just “yes”. Shame on Barker. Andrea Jones Duncan

Original artist touching up the face of Chemainus LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

All this week, renowned artist Paul Ygartua has been in Chemainus, restoring his famous mural, Native Heritage. The painting, with its arresting images of First Nations faces, is considered THE mural to see first by most visitors. Ygartua, who celebrated his 69th birthday with a paintbrush in his hand Monday, is delighted to be back again for his restoration job. It’s his third trip to Chemainus. “I suppose this is the mural here. I guess it’s because it’s a little different. I didn’t do it to represent the history of Chemainus or to itemize different people, I chose subject matter that was, in a sense, dynamic, a little controversial at the time. “It was a challenge to do it because I knew I wanted to do the faces really big. It was also the first time I’d ever painted a mural in my life. And that was in 1983. In those days I was fit enough to climb scaffolding,” he laughed. “Now we have a ladder lift, which is better and safer as well.” Ygartua enjoyed painting his subject matter. “I thought it was important to have the right faces, it’s impressive. Then, I did another mural for Expo 86: the United Nations pavilion, and there I did the same thing. It was a painting of a large Haida chief in the middle. “That was another thing that caused a lot of riot and controversy. I had people ask, ‘why do you want to put a native Indian in the middle?’ And I replied, ‘Well, can you think of anything that represents B.C. more than the natives?’ Then, they thought about it again,” he said. Times have changed and Ygar-

Paul Yguartua restores Chemainus’s most iconic mural. [ANDREA RONDEAU/CITIZEN] tua’s mural has become the iconic image of the entire Chemainus outdoor gallery. Few visitors leave the area without having experienced its magnetism. “It was the entrance to Chemainus, too, and it was a stopper. You can see it from a hundred yards away driving down the road. The eyes are so penetrating,” he said. The painter has spent three days this week reclaiming the image. “I practically had to paint it over. It was faded, it was white. I’ve had to put colour in all the faces, going into all the details again,

repair some little damage in it. The totem poles? They’ve never looked this good,” he said. “The first time I painted it, I took a week and there wasn’t much money so I didn’t spend a lifetime doing it. I did the faces exactly like this but I didn’t do a lot of detail on those poles. Now I’ve repaired them with much more detail and I think they look much stronger than before.” This is the third time he’s been back to restore the piece, as he said the sun sucks the colour out of it.

To renovate the painting, he’s been using previously taken photographs of the mural. As he looked around downtown Chemainus, Ygartua is still surprised at how it’s changed since he first saw it in 1983. “Even when I came they were starting to put in a lot of new buildings. They started with four or five murals. Now they’ve got 40 murals or more. Can you imagine that? It’s great. Because when people are heading towards Victoria or Nanaimo, it’s a long drive. They want to stop and have

something to eat. It’s a perfect little place. “They’ve done a lot here but they have to make an effort to keep it up because if you start letting the murals slide, that’s the worst thing.” The restoration job on Native Heritage is costing just under $18,000, according to the Festival of Murals Society. Since he first painted his mural in Chemainus, Ygartua has gone on to create 15 more. His work now adorns walls in Canada, the United States and Europe. Festival of Murals Society president Tom Andrews dropped by and complimented Ygartua on his work. “It’s beautiful. It was so faded,” Andrews said. Asked if this work was part of an overall revitalization plan for Chemainus, he said, “not specifically but the murals do need, as Paul says, to be repaired every 10 or 12 years because of exposure. And this one was due. And it’s the iconic mural. So, it does fit in with the restoration and revitalization that is going on in town right now.” The entire site has been refurbished. “We re-did the park here. You can see all the groundwork that’s been done. We cleared all the bushes out from this garden that were really blocking people’s views. Some of those rhododendrons were getting tall. “And in downtown, they are doing Waterwheel Park in the fall and hopefully Chemainus Road will get re-done between the theatre and River Road with a roundabout and boulevard put in to make a beautiful entrance into town. Our timing here fits right in,” Andrews said.

Duncan man caught in child porn bust KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

A 29-year-old Duncan man was among more than 150 individuals arrested or under investigation across Canada as part of Operation Snapshot III, a massive child pornography bust coordinated by the RCMP and involving dozens of police agencies across Canada. Five children were also rescued from sexual exploitation. The Duncan man, whose name has not been released, is facing two charges of possessing and accessing child pornography. Twenty-nine investigations were conducted in B.C., including 22 in communities policed by the RCMP. As of Thursday, 32 charges had been laid against 11 men through those investigations.

“A number of these investigations remain ongoing,” said B.C. RCMP media relations officer Sgt. Rob Vermeulen. Operation Snapshot began in February 2014 and was coordinated by the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre. It is the third such operation conducted over the last three years. “For every person arrested and prosecuted, dozens of potential future victims are saved from harm,” RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson said. “Over the past three years, Snapshot has built on the dedication, partnership and collaborative efforts of police agencies, sending a message to would-be abusers that we will not be deterred from protecting children.”

Coun. Jennifer Woike

Coun. Al Siebring

Council wants changes to law to protect livestock LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

North Cowichan is going to ask the Union of BC Municipalities for backing in pushing changes that would allow livestock owners to protect their animals from attacks by uncontrolled dogs. A case last year that saw a farmer successfully sued after a shooting now means that farmers need support, councillors agreed. Amendments to the Livestock Act should: • allow livestock owners to protect their animals from attack by uncontrolled dogs • defend livestock owners from

lawsuits by dog owners, and • clearly place the responsibility for dog control on dog owners and not on livestock owners. Coun. Al Siebring wanted to ensure that wording still meant that a farmer had the right to shoot a dog harassing livestock. Coun. Jennifer Woike said she hoped the amendments would go forward as farmers needed the support now. The need came as a surprise to Coun. Ruth Hartmann who thought farmers already had the right to deal summarily with dogs harassing sheep and other farm animals.

Switch flipped, camera is live PUBLIC OUTCRY, From Page 1 He was delighted to announce last week that the replacement camera was up and running. “Wednesday I received an email from [transportation] ministry officials telling me that the switch had been flipped and it was live,” he said. Morrison, who lives at Honeymoon Bay himself, knew, like many other Lake area residents, that it was coming, because he’d been told over the Easter weekend that the ministry had taken a

second look at the situation after all the complaints they’d received and decided to reinstate the popular webcam. Again, like a lot of motorists, he’d seen the construction start and was watching the Drive BC website like a cat outside a mouse hole, hoping for news. Looking at the new camera, he said, “The solar panels are a little bigger than the other ones. Everyone says the images are fantastic. Now, we just need to get some hydro here so we can get a light to see conditions at night.”

The Cowichan Station brickyard never made it into serious production as did this New Westminster firm. —TWP products then used in construction projects on the Island came from Washington State with duties and freight charges attached. This company never even got off the ground, at least in its original guise, a victim of bad timing and circumstances totally beyond its control. 1912 marked the beginning of the end of one of the greatest development booms B.C. has ever experienced, one primarily financed by British and German investors. I said beginning of the end because, even then, growing political dissension in Europe leading, just two years later, to world war, was beginning to chill investment. As we’ve seen, its 1927 successor, the XL Sand, Gravel & Brick Co., was also doomed by poor timing. This, after going to the considerable expense of build-

ing two large kilns, damming Moss Falls to provide hydro-electric power, and importing large and expensive equipment from England. For the XL, it wasn’t world war that brought them down but the (socalled) Great Depression. The stock market crash that plunged the world into an economic drought lasted right through the Dirty ’30s. The late Jack Fleetwood, a lifetime Cowichan Station resident, blamed mismanagement and the resulting loss of investor confidence for its failure. In 1935 — less than 10 years from start to finish — the rusting machinery was cut up for scrap. George Highmoor operated Cowichan Brick Co. on the site of the ill-fated brickyard, 1930-44. www.twpaterson.com

MUSINGS of a Magpie Mind (Bits and pieces of history, travel and trivia, collected over the years by Bill Greenwell)

Colourful commentary: the charm of old travel guides

I

discovered a bundle of tour guides in a drawer the other day and mused that for most of us, planning a holiday is almost as much fun as being there. And we usually look to the web to help whet our appetites, where colourful brochures from the various tourism organisations are available at the touch of a button. How different things were for the traveller a couple of hundred years ago. Even wealthy aristocrats, determined to take the “grand tour” of Europe, were hard pressed to find information on what to expect. Word of mouth over the dinner tables of the privileged was relied on to identify the attractions that were not to be missed. Then around 1827, along came Karl Ludwig Johannes Baedeker, with a bright idea, which helped spawn the industry that

VANCOUVER ISLAND’S

Thomas Cook and his competitors developed. Soon the whole world would be open to prepackaged tours, usually escorted by unctuous local guides, suitably costumed, who naturally expected a sizeable collective tip. Today those early old Baedeker tomes and similar guides from Miche-

lin, etc., are much sought after by collectors. One reason they’re so precious is the pithy observations of the people who were paid to describe their experiences to avid new travellers. Let me quote one or two passages from an early edition. We are warned that in Tsarist Russia “fleas are of a vexatory disposition!” If a visit to Luxor is scheduled, we are told that “fish dishes in Egypt have a strong taste of mud”. The German commentator reporting from the Costa Brava chastised his countrymen who “use their elbows like flails to get to the trough”. Among these old guidebooks, Murray’s are the most explicit and their Handbook for Spain, published in 1845, written by Richard Ford, is typical. He was the most stimulating, uninhibited traveller in print. Consider his views on the good citizens of

tion, and had not been compelled to work at the local coal face with your sister and your other siblings, from the age of eight or nine, or in a cotton mill on a 12 hour shift. Yes, those were the heady Victorian days of Empire, emerging technology, and fashionable travel, but only if you belonged to the privileged class who had the means to enjoy such blessings. Most Brits didn’t; including my folks. Nor did they know what a Baedeker was. (Bill Greenwell prospered in the ad agency arena for 40 years. He retains a passion for medieval history, marine paintings and piscatorial pursuits. His wife Patricia indulges him in these interests, but being a seasoned writer from a similar background, she has always deplored his weakness for alliteration. This has sadly had no effect on his writing style, whatsoever.)

from

Valencia: “They are perfidious, vindictive, sullen, mistrustful, fickle, treacherous....devoid of all virtue, snarling and biting like hyenas and smiling as they murder!” But he adds, “The typical Valencian likes and trusts an Englishman.” The superior Mr. Ford, so typical of his race, had a sweeping contempt for what he called “foreigners”, even on their own turf. And if we wonder about the quality of education that our kids are getting these days, while watching our government tussling with their teachers, consider this item from Murray’s Handbook for Greece, “Any Englishman having the usual knowledge of ancient Greek will be able to read the Athenian papers with ease”. That’s what it says, and it was probably true, so long as you had enjoyed the privilege of an expensive classical educa-

No shortage of highlights for DCS athletes KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

EX D JU E TEN LY AD D 25 LIN ED ,2 E 01 4

Even though they contend for titles year after year, the value of competing for a provincial championship is never lost on the athletes of Duncan Christian School. Provincial tournaments were recurring themes as the school’s top athletes commented on the 2013/14. T he volleyball championships, which DCS hosted, were highlights of the year for senior girls Athletes of the Year Becky Bazinet and Lauren King-Nyberg, as well as junior girls Athletes of the Year Brenna Bazinet and Danielle Groenendijk. As King-Nyberg pointed out, volleyball was the only sport in which DCS’s girls team qualified for a provincial tournament, but the experience was bigger than that. “We improved so much in our hometown, and we had the fans and everything to support us,” Brenna Bazinet said. Becky Bazinet lauded the way the school came together to put on both the boys and girls B.C. championships. “It was a good community effort to make it all happen,” she said. Becky Bazinet was an Island allstar in three sports: volleyball, basketball and soccer, and the school’s MVP in volleyball and basketball. Two years ago she was named junior Athlete of the Year, so she was pleased to wrap up her high school career with another award.

DCS athletic award winners Jenna Bakker, Brenna Bazinet, Danielle Groenendijk, Lauren King-Nyberg, Becky Bazinet, Doug Groenendijk, Mike Brandsma, Adam Kapteyn and Matt Brandsma. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN] “I loved playing sports here, so it’s a good way to finish off,” she said. King-Nyberg, who has a year left at the school, shared basketball MVP honours with Bazinet, and was also an Island all-star in basketball. She was also named school MVP in badminton and soccer, and played volleyball and ball hockey. Still, she wasn’t expecting to be honoured at the end of the year. “It feels pretty cool,” she said. Doug Groenendijk capped off a dominant year in multiple sports by being named DCS’s senior male Athlete of the Year. He earned MVP honours at the Island cham-

pionships in both volleyball and basketball, and was a first-team all-star at provincials in both sports. He was also on the school’s ball hockey and track teams. “It felt good [to be honoured],” he said. “It shows that hard work and practicing pays off in the end.” Groenendijk will continue his volleyball career next year with Thompson Rivers University, but he admitted he will miss Duncan Christian. “It kind of sucks, but it’s going to be good at Thompson Rivers,” he said. “They have pretty good volleyball there.” Both junior girls Athletes of the Year had familiar names as

Brenna Bazinet and Danielle Groenendijk continued their families’ legacies. A key player on the basketball and volleyball teams, Bazinet saw the honour as a reward for a year’s worth of hard work. “It wasn’t a goal, but I always believe I should try my very best in everything I do, so it’s nice to be recognized for something I really tried hard for,” she said. Groenendijk was named MVP at the Island volleyball championships, and was an honourable mention all-star at provincials, as well as playing basketball and track. In addition to Doug, older sib-

lings Megan and Cam have also helped the family accumulate hardware over the year, and Danielle is more than happy to add to the total. “It would be nice to do as good as they did, but I’ll just do my best and see what happens,” she said. Both junior boys Athletes of the Year — Mike Brandsma and Adam Kapteyn — admitted they had their sights set on the award all year, but were pleased to share it with each other. “There was a lot of competition this year,” Brandsma said. “It felt good to share it with Adam as well.” Despite being junior athletes, both Brandsma and Kapteyn played on the senior boys volleyball and basketball teams, as well as the badminton and ball hockey squads. Both cited basketball provincials as highlights of the year. “It just felt good to be so young and playing at a high level and doing well,” Brandsma said. “It felt good to actually play,” Kapteyn added. “Last year I went with the team, but I just sat there.” Jenna Bakker and Matt Brandsma were named Athletes of the Year, kicking off promising high school sports careers. Both were also the MVPs for their respective volleyball and basketball teams. “It’s uplifting for next year,” Bakker said. “I’ll probably want to work towards that goal again.” “It feels pretty good to put in all the work and get an award out of it,” Brandsma said.

Shorthanded jr. Thunder fall to Tigers Closson club wins debut skins tourney KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Short on players, with half of their 14 runners called up from the intermediate B ranks, the Cowichan Valley Thunder suffered a 16-11 loss to the Saanich Tigers in a Pacific Northwest Junior B Lacrosse League game at the Island Savings Centre last Friday. The Cowichan players had no shortage of heart, but couldn’t keep up with the Tigers in other areas. “I thought our effort was really good, but we were outmatched in size and age,” coach Lorne Winship said. Graham Winship had two goals and five assists for the Thunder, Tyson Black had two goals and three assists, and Chance Koughan scored twice. Luke Anderson and Jamie Jensen finished with one goal and two assists apiece, Joey Robb and Kelvin Philp each had a goal and an assist, Alex Hayton scored once, and Colin Winship, Jimmy Johnnie and Bryson Weberg all had single assists. The intermediate B Thunder split their two games over the last week, losing 9-7 to Saanich last Thursday and beating Juan de Fuca 14-5 on Wednesday night. “It was a funny game,” coach Winship said of the loss to Saanich. “We just didn’t have our best effort.”

KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Graham Winship slips past a Saanich defender. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN] Black scored three times in the defeat, Colin Winship had a goal and five assists, and Brandon Corby had a goal and one helper. Steven Robertson and Corwin Trent scored singles, Mitch Page had two assists and Johnnie added one. A slow start had the team trailing JDF 3-1 after the first period on Wednesday, but a goalie switch and a pep talk helped them reverse their fortunes. The team rallied to lead 9-5 after the second period and cruised through the third. “We definitely got our act together in the second period,” Winship said. Black finished the night with five goals and one assist, Colin

Winship had three goals and five assists, and Mat Jung collected three goals and two assists. Cowichan also got single goals from Trent and James Taylor, while Page had three assists, and Robertson and Kaine Dreaver each had one assist. Dallas McLaughlin played strong in net down the stretch. The intermediates have two games left, including a huge home date against Saanich at 7:45 p.m. on June 27 that will likely determine first place in the league. The juniors’ next home game is on June 28 at 4 p.m. Both teams are holding a fundraiser this Saturday at the Cobblestone Pub beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.

A first attempt at running a skins tournament worked out just fine for the Gord Closson Forest Products Fastball Club earlier this month. The Duncan team hosted three other squads for the tournament at Glenora, with plenty of cash on the line. The first six games were worth $70 apiece or $10 an inning. That went up to $140 per game in the semifinals and $210 in the finals. “It was a different format altogether,” manager Joe DiLalla said. “I think we’ll do the same thing next year.” The host team cleaned up with $530, more than double the total of the second-place Sooke Smoke, who collected $240. Nanaimo’s Palladian claimed $100, while the Nanaimo midgets earned $30. Closson won the final game by a single run, beating Sooke in the eighth inning. “We had a good weekend,” DiLalla acknowledged. “We did most of the damage. We’re fortunate that we’ve got a couple of good chuckers.” Resuming the regular season, the Duncan team managed a 40 road victory over Palladian on June 12.

They got on the board in the third inning when Shane McLaughlin walked, then got to third on a double by Alan Ross, and scored as Trevor Gicas was tagged out at first. McLaughlin blasted a solo home run in the fifth inning. Joey Massingham then singled and Gicas doubled before Brad Robinson sent them both home on a single. Korrey Gareau pitched the first four innings, giving up just two hits while striking out 11. Craig Snyder pitched the next three and surrendered one hit while striking out three. At home on June 17, Duncan beat Baker Supply 8-0 on Tuesday, mercying the Nanaimo team in six innings. “We didn’t have a huge inning, but it added up to eight, and we’ll take the win,” DiLalla said. Rick Smith pitched a completegame shutout with 14 strikeouts and helped his cause by going 2-for-4 with three runs batted in, including a walk-off two-run homer. Marty Steen also starred, going 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs, with a two-run homer in the fourth. Massingham, Bob Court, Dom Mansueti and Dave Devana each had two hits. The team is at home to Palladian on June 24 at 7 p.m.

Atom Bulldogs save their best for Silver Cup semis KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Saving their best game for last, the atom Cowichan Bulldogs bowed out of the spring football season last Sunday after a hardfought 24-12 loss to the Westshore Warriors in the Silver Cup semifinals. The Bulldogs struck early with an 80-yard touchdown from Koda Lang on the opening kickoff. “It was incredible to watch,” coach Devon Lawrence said. “But also was all the blocking being made by the Bulldogs which gave Lang the room to run.” Cowichan generated numerous first downs in the first half, sparked by centre Ethan Giles making space for running back

Zack Pearson. On defence, the Bulldogs made the Warriors work for every inch, led by defensive end Brock Lamont’s many tackles, while Lang had an impressive game at outside linebacker. In the second half, it was the offensive linemen who led the way for Cowichan, standing their ground as the Warriors were called for no fewer than eight offsides in the half. “We have been working on this for the past few weeks as it is a difficult concept for players at this age to grasp, but they did a terrific job and were rewarded,” Lawrence said. Defensive linemen Parker Sparks and Harrison Padur challenged every attempt by the War-

riors to run up the middle. Near the end of the fourth quarter, Pearson broke free and sprinted 60 yards to the end zone for his first touchdown of the season, shaking off a Westshore defender along the way. “It has been incredible to see the development of the team from the beginning of the season and I wished it was only the beginning,” Lawrence said. “It is my hope that everyone from the team returns for next spring to continue what we have started as I could not be more proud.” Both the pre-atom and pee wee Bulldogs will play for their respective Silver Cups this Saturday at Westhills Stadium in Langford.

Shuffle hits Chemainus streets Tuesday night KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Twilight Shuffle will return to the streets of Chemainus for its 30th run at 7 p.m. next Tuesday. Phil Nicholls and his mother, Lorna, started the 5km run/walk in 1984 as a way to celebrate sports in the community. “Starting the Twilight Shuffle with my mother in 1984 was a great way to give back to the community where I had my start in running,” said Nicholls, a three-

time winner of the Victoria Marathon. “This year we’re encouraging everyone to take part to celebrate the long history of this event and raise money for an important cause — supporting our Legion.” The Twilight Shuffle has raised money for a wide range of groups over its three-decade run, but for the last 10 years, the focus has been on the Lorna Nicholls Memorial Bursary awarded by the Chemainus Legion to a local

high school student. “It is great to give back to the community while honouring one of our former members,” said Janet Mitchell, an executive member of the Chemainus Legion. Unique in the running world, the Twilight Shuffle takes place on a weekday evening, while most runs start on Sunday mornings.

Pair of off-season trades shake up Capitals’ roster KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Cowichan Valley Capitals added a big defenceman and a veteran forward in a pair of trades earlier this week, one of which saw the Caps give up a top offensive producer. In the first deal, Jacob Kearley, a 19-year-old, 6-4, 220-pound blueliner comes to Cowichan from the Victoria Grizzlies, while 20-yearold forward Dane Gibson heads the other way. In the other exchange, the Caps received 20-year-old forward Alex Bechtold from the Drumheller Dragons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League for defender Clint Filbrandt. Kearley brings an offensive touch for a defenceman, having accumulated 26 points last season on six goals and 20 helpers over 57 games, and another four goals and four assists in 16 playoff contests. Kearley is expected to help anchor the Cowichan defence, which lost several veterans after last season. “We are extremely pleased to add Jacob to our D corps,” Capitals head coach and general manager Bob Beatty said. “There aren’t many players that have the combination of skill, size, and character that this young man has.”

Dane Gibson is on his way to Victoria. [CITIZEN FILE] Gibson had a career year with the Caps in 2013/14, scoring 20 goals and added 33 assists for 53 points in 57 games. His goal and point totals were second on the club, while his nine powerplay markers were a team high. Bechtold is a 6-1, 206-pound forward who had a career-best 23 points in 35 games with the Dragons last year before adding 12 points in 13 playoff games, good for fourth in league scoring. “Alex is a big, strong, power forward and he’s an extremely hard working player that is excited to join the club,” Beatty said. “He is developing a reputation of being a big game player and we are excited to add him to our group.” Filbrandt, 19, played 22 games with the Caps after coming over in the trade for centre Steen Cooper, collecting six points.

Aaron Pritchett is always a crowd favourite in the Cowichan Valley. His previous performance at Sunfest garnered him a lot of local fans. [CITIZEN FILE]

SUNFEST stars

Aaron Pritchett Aaron Pritchett is a popular addition to the Sunfest lineup. He’ll be opening for superstar Tim McGraw on the huge festival’s final night, Sunday, Aug. 3. In addition to having relatives in the Cowichan Valley, he has proven himself to be one of the hardest working and sought after artists in the business. He’s spent just over a decade at the forefront of the Canadian country music scene, but Pritchett is just as driven as

ever and with a great single, Suntan City, on the charts, he has a lot to be excited about. Onstage he’s energetic and dynamic but also one of the nicest guys around. Over his career he has earned many accolades, including a CCMA for Independent Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year in 2007 for Hold My Beer and songs like Let’s Get Rowdy and My Way still get airplay.
