Man airlifted after electrocution out of hospital SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Less than 24 hours after an electric shock estimated at about 14,000 volts coursed through his body 20-year-old Kenton Forbes was released from hospital. The electrocution occurred while the young man was working on the deconstruction of the Chemainus River Bridge on Tuesday. “I just seized up. I couldn’t move. I couldn’t do anything,” Forbes told CTV on Wednesday. WorkSafeBC spokeswoman Ally Skinner-Reynolds said Forbes had been standing next to a crane on the bridge when the incident occurred about 2:15 p.m. Part of the deconstruction process involved the placement of what’s called a bridge panel, a platform that crews work from while removing an old span and rebuilding a new one, she said. “They were bringing in the bridge panel using a crane and the crane came in contact with a high-voltage power line,” Skinner-Reynolds confirmed. “It looks like there was a young worker who had his hand on the bridge panel, I guess he was guiding it into place, and so of course the current went from the power line, down the crane and to the bridge panel and gave this young worker an electric shock.” North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP Cpl. Greg Pask told media that the Forbes was initially unconscious. “I guess I was out for a half hour then I came to and the paramedics came,” Forbes told CTV. Pask said Forbes was transferred to Victoria General Hospital and was conscious and breathing

Pask said the victim’s father was also at the scene working when the incident occurred.

“I understand it was a bit of a family operation,” he said, noting the North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP victim’s services unit had been made available to the family. Investigation into why the incident happened is still underway. “He has been released from the

hospital but our fatal and serious investigations team is still investigating just because of the high potential for serious injury,” Skinner-Reynolds said. “We want to find out what went wrong there. Regulations limit how close equipment may be to functioning

power lines, she noted. “It’s called limits of approach and there is a 10-foot rule, so equipment can’t be within 10 feet. We’ll also be looking at the training and education that was given to the workers and a coordination with the electrical contract crew that was on site.”

Province approves contaminated soil dumping MIKE D’AMOUR CITIZEN

Contaminated soil from Greater Victoria will likely find a new home in the Shawnigan Lake area in less than a month after getting the official okay from the province to do so. “At a meeting [Wednesday] morning between the Ministry of Mines and the Cowichan Valley Regional District it was confirmed a final permit will be recommended for issue for the South Island Aggregates Contaminated Soil Facility within the next few weeks,” said Shawnigan Lake CVRD Dir. Bruce Fraser. In effect, South Island Aggregates has been approved a permit to annually dump more than 100 million tonnes of contaminated soil — containing chemicals that range from hydrocarbons to chloride — into a gravel pit on Stebbings Road. Despite protests from the Shawnigan Lake community and others, the Ministry of Environment appears to be ready to let the dirty soil operation begin, said Fraser. “The only option that appears to

Shawnigan residents have been out in force protesting the permit for South Island Aggregates. [CITIZEN FILE] be legally available is an appeal to the Environmental Appeal Board when that decision comes down,” he said. The Shawnigan Residents’ Association is gearing up to do just that, already having hired counsel and by starting to raise funds. “In the meantime we’ll try to point out to government officials and to cabinet this is not a decision that’s kindly to the Shawnigan community and they need to think twice about making that decision,” said Fraser. “I don’t think they have a full

grasp at all of what’s going on in Shawnigan. The ministry ... should know allocating the SIA permit will bring great and completely illegitimate anguish to our community.” MOE staff members are convinced the SIA application can now be positively approved because it satisfies “the standards of the day,” and that risks, while acknowledged to be greater than zero, are “adequately reduced with the system proposed by SIA,” he said. “No amount of technical justi-

fication is adequate to permit the deliberate addition of a contamination risk to a community watershed,” Fraser said. “It’s all for cash.” The CVRD director said he challenged government officials on the many threats and risks to the Shawnigan watershed, which includes the implications of climate change on the quality and quantity of the water supply affected by private land logging, by gravel pits, by illegal dumping, by lack of sewage facilities around the lake and a burgeoning popula-

tion, among other arguments. “Those form the context upon which this kind of decision should be made,” Fraser said. “Common sense would suggest you look at the whole picture and make a decision based on the integrity of the entire watershed, not just on one application.” One of the more shocking aspects of the decision by the government to issue the permit is the fact all the results of environmental tests are not yet known. “Last May we prevailed with [Environment Minister Terry] Lake to conduct a series of tests on what is actually coming into the Shawnigan watershed, which they got around to doing in the fall,” Fraser said. It’s only now that initial test results are dribbling in, he said. But unless “something major comes out of left field” there is no impediment remaining to the issuance of the permit in the view of the technical personnel and the statutory decision maker within the MOE, Fraser said. “This applies to both the water and airborne pollutants that could emanate from the operation.”

Council caps Echo Heights construction at 20 per cent SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Only 20 per cent of the 52-acre parcel of land dubbed Echo Heights could be developed now that North Cowichan council has firmed up its plans for the contentious Chemainus woodland. The municipally owned, second-growth Coastal Douglas fir forest has for at least two decades been at the forefront of a battle that has seen a group of Chemainus residents rally against the municipality’s development aims. But an end to the saga may be in sight. On Wednesday evening council voted to all but abandon a 2011 development plan that would see about 40 per cent of Echo Heights built out in favour of a new idea that would cap construction at 20 per cent, and confine it to the already disturbed south east corner of the property, while preserving the remainder. Councillors John Koury and Al Siebring were the only two opposed. “I look at the comprehensive development plan, the hundreds of thousands of dollars that got us to that point,” Koury said. “I think it’s a huge mistake, a huge mistake, to rescind this.” Siebring said council has a broader responsibility to the taxpayers outside Chemainus and shouldn’t be bullied by one special interest group claiming to be the majority.

Nevertheless, a decision has to be made, he noted. “This discussion has been going on for a long time,” Siebring said. “I do think it’s important, whatever we do with this, that we finally get this settled. Let’s have the discussion and let’s have it out.” And so they did. In an hourslong debate, they all had their say. Coun. Ruth Hartmann admitted to changing her mind from a pro-development stance in 2011 to a more preservationist approach today. “At that time I believed that that was the way to move forward. I’m glad however we’ve had time to reflect and to listen and to gain more experience and to learn more,” she said. Coun. Kate Marsh made no bones about wanting 100 per cent protection but said she could support the 20 per cent idea if only to ensure that at least 80 per cent of Echo Heights would remain intact. “After sitting at this table for a year and a half I really do fully understand the need to sometimes develop municipal land to keep taxes affordable,” Marsh said. “I believe we do have to balance development and conservation. It’s too late for balance now, really. I feel we must push back and try to save the remaining rare and endangered forest that we have…and allow them to recover.”

Residents who packed the North Cowichan gallery urged council not to develop Echo Heights. [CITIZEN FILE]

Preservationists plead for protection SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

Nearly-12-year-old Rachel Woodruff stood before North Cowichan council scared to death about what she was about to do. “I’m not professional but I believe that I can still speak,” she said through tears. “I’m never spoken in front of a bunch of adults before.” But, behind her was a gallery full of folks who regularly challenge council, who from their encouragement, most certainly had her back, and, in front of her a smiling Mayor Jon Lefebure said she was among friends. “We’re very pleased to hear from someone younger than the average,” he said. “We really would like to hear from you.” And with that, Woodruff was off. Showing maturity beyond most her age, Woodruff ’s speech on why council should preserve Echo Heights all but brought the house down. “I’m 11 but I’m almost 12. It’d

be a nice birthday present if you keep Echo Heights as it is. There’s many other places that we can build aside from Echo Heights,” she said, noting the many environmental, educational and cultural opportunities the 52-acre forest provides. Giving up the habitat would be a mistake, she said, as they’ll just encroach on people’s yards or take to the streets — both things undesirable. “Would you like a weasel or fox in your backyard killing your chickens?” she asked. “I certainly wouldn’t. Or a deer eating your tulips? No, that wouldn’t be very nice, would it? Unless you preserve the place the animals will just come running through the streets.” Woodruff said she was speaking for every student at St. Joseph’s school and was amazed at their support when she told them of the issue. “Every child would like to see this protected because we don’t inherit the earth from our ances-

tors, we borrow it from our grandchildren,” she said. Woodruff was backed by the likes of the Chemainus Residents’ Association’s Bernie Jones, who said, “It’s a wrong-headed decision to tear down any of it for housing,” as his group could use municipal data to prove North Cowichan doesn’t need the extra residences. Dr. Kelly Banister, an ethnobotanist who urged council to look at the mass of information gathered by scientists and professionals within the community and not just the single-source report prepared by Madrone Environmental, which had acknowledged limitations, such as no input from the Local First Nations, who hold Echo Heights in high esteem for both its medicinal features and as a prayer station. “The data is there, it can easily be assembled. I think the evidence and knowledge is there to justify the 100 per cent protection,” Banister said. “I think what’s missing is a little bit of common sense.”

OUR VIEW

Will of community ignored in broken system omething in our provincial government system is seriously broken. Nothing could have brought this into sharper focus than the news this week that a permit for South Island Aggregates to import and dump millions of tonnes of contaminated soil into a pit on their property within the Shawnigan Lake watershed is all but a done deal. This, in spite of mass opposition from virtually every single resident of the Shawnigan Lake area, and the Cowichan Valley Regional District. Protest rallies, denunciations

S

of the plan from every provincial election candidate for the Cowichan Valley riding in the spring election — including Steve Housser who ran for the Liberals — and questioning of the science behind the proposal haven’t, apparently, made a dent in the province’s decision-making process. Our local government is against it, the people are against it. Yet that seems to count for nothing at all. We have to ask ourselves: how is it that the wishes of an entire community can be utterly ignored in favour of benefitting

one private business? There is no up side to the community in this move, only risk. That’s to say nothing of the general wisdom of allowing contaminated soil to be dumped in a drinking watershed that supplies a community. Even if precautions are taken to prevent leakage, there are always uncertainties such as earthquakes (particularly in our neck of the woods) that can have a profound effect. If contamination happens, it will be too late. We can never put it back the way it was. We think this is a chance it’s

better not to take. There’s too much to lose. It might be different if that wasn’t the way the community sees it. But they do. Which leads us back to our initial conclusion that something is seriously wrong with our system. The will of the many (the very foundation of democracy) is being completely ignored in this case. Apparently there is no necessity that the fury of the public be considered. There should be. The interests of one busi-

As a taxpayer in Shawnigan I read with interest Mike Croft’s letter regarding the Kerry Park plan. Three questions arise: 1) If the “bulk of the repairs is seismic upgrades” costing $2.75 million, why are we borrowing $9.4 million for basic repairs? 2) The change rooms cost $2.9 million! Is there a construction company in the Valley who could build these changes rooms less luxurious but equally utilitarian for less than $1 million? 3) If we pay annually for repairs and maintenance why are there suddenly in need of such extensive repair? Where is the contingency fund? How much longer can we, the taxpayer, afford to pay?

ness should not be allowed to run roughshod over an entire community. It rather reminds us of the closing of Cowichan Lodge, another high-handed provincial government move that had no support whatsoever from the general public. Yet the Vancouver Island Health Authority plowed ahead, just as the Ministry of Environment is doing now. The attitude of “we’re going to do what we like and there’s nothing you can do about it” is unacceptable. It’s time to fix what’s broken.

Food bank story an eyeopener The Citizen article highlighting the challenges facing the Cowichan Valley Basket Society (Duncan food bank) was an eye opener. The food bank fills a growing need in our community. The board of directors, staff led by Colleen Fuller, and volunteers do their best to accommodate the dietary needs of clients. This is incredible knowing the budget constraints they work under. I can’t help but think, there must be something we can do. Here are a couple of ideas: • When something is on sale, buy two and donate one. Colleen

can give you a list of items the food bank needs. • Social clubs and organizations, have collection boxes at your meetings. • Gardeners, bring your extra produce to the food bank — fresh is always appreciated. One time donations are welcomed, but regular commitments are what help the Society meet its monthly operating budget. The Cowichan Valley community cannot afford to lose the food bank. The people of this Valley are known for their generosity. If each person does a little, the effect is huge! Maggie Davenport and Jim Block Cobble Hill

How do we mobilize the masses? The Occupy movement seems to be stalling. I see fewer and fewer references to “occupy’ events. I am disappointed. I had high hopes for the movement as a means of working politically for fundamental change. The Occupy movement popularized the terms the one per cent-ers and 99 per cent-ers. This refers to the growing wealth gap between the one per cent obscenely rich and we, the 99 per cent-ers. I am disappointed that the Occupy movement has not made an issue of this mal-distribution of wealth. I still hope the Occupy movement can rejuvenate itself by

becoming politicized. I hope that the Occupy movement can focus on the fundamental cause of the accelerating wealth gap — the political process which is causing this growing mal-distribution of the wealth which we the people produce. In a democracy where every citizen has a vote, the logic of our overwhelming numbers as the 99 per cent-ers, is a people’s government which legislates in our legitimate self-interests. How do we mobilize and create an identity as 99 per cent-ers? How do we use the process of defining our common wants to unify into a political power? Gerry Masuda Duncan


Opinion

Cowichan Valley Citizen | Friday, June 21, 2013

Echo Heights a mockery Copy of a letter to North Cowichan mayor and council, re: Echo Heights back on council agenda. This constant re-presentation of proposals rejected by a majority of affected parties is making a mockery of democracy. You remember democracy? Government of the people, for the people, by the people? It is distressing beyond description that once again decisions affecting the continued security and enjoyment of Chemainus residents are being manipulated by unelected members of North Cowichan municipal staff. The rationalization that development of Echo Heights, an area that represents all that makes SuperNatural British Columbia the goal of retiring Canadians, is needed to fund “responsible urban growth” is specious. Chemainus is not urban (or, by official definition, even a town). We are a rural community, a village, really — as the dictionary definition describes it, “a self-contained district or community within a town or city, regarded as having features characteristic of village life”. Unless the undeclared strategy of North Cowichan municipal staff is to make Chemainus and similar surrounding rural areas the bedroom communities for Duncan, it is absurd to destroy vast tracts of land to erect homes unsupported by employment opportunities, educational and health requirements of “future populations”. Financial support for these essential services is currently being reduced; don’t expect provincial or federal involvement to address future deficiencies. Furthermore, it is

ludicrous and self-contradictory to describe this proposal as providing “opportunities for growth in order to prevent sprawl and costly non-contiguous development”. How can covering up to 54 acres of pristine forested landscape be described as preventing sprawl? Opportunities within Chemainus for expanded development on previously developed land have been thwarted at every turn by lack of support from municipal staff. So where is the cause and where is the cure for urban sprawl? Reference reports contain several attempts at rationalization. Staff reports say that Echo Heights has been previously logged. There is a vast difference between logging (mostly undertaken in the previous century when environmental concerns were not as pressing) and permanently defoliating a scenic area. At reference (b), [North Cowichan Planner] Mack says, “This report has specifically and intentionally not addressed the financial implications (costs and revenues) of development vs. protection (in consideration of the fact that the municipality is the owner, and would be the developer of the subject properties) due to a desire to allow council to focus first on land use and OCP policies which should direct our decisions on the highest and best use of the subject properties.” Would it be too presumptuous to suggest that avoiding the elephant in the room, the financial implications, may avoid the inevitable inclusion of recent escalation of municipal budget items, not the least of which is executive salaries? B.C.’s premier might be relieved to accept the level of responsibility enjoyed

More gas exports not long-term thinking

man, was on CBC and elsewhere promoting the export of gas — he was saying that gas is good, gas is clean, gas will create jobs. Sorry Mr. Coleman, it’s not true. Contradicting the idea that gas is good was an article from our own B.C. Royal Roads University which says that emissions of

greenhouse gases from the natural gas sector are significantly greater than reported, and may lead to a 20 per cent loss of natural gas into our atmosphere, equivalent to more that two million cars on our roads. Therefore, increasing gas exports will cause more climate

destroy our shared climate — a classic case of the tragedy of the commons. Lots of people in government know that — hey, we have a climate action secretariat within our own B.C. government. But Mr. Coleman ignores inconvenient facts and focuses on his immediate political needs. We must tackle the very big task of phasing out the burning of fossil fuels. Maybe a lot of people need to die before our leaders act — more hurricanes, more tornadoes, more flooding and more droughts. I sure hope a change in attitude comes soon, because I need a holiday — a flightless passage on a cargo freighter to Europe — yes, it’s possible. Alternatives to exporting more gas, oil or coal are available. We have the technology to switch to renewable energy sources that would create more local jobs and allow our kids a good sustainable life. Mr. Coleman, what is so hard about that concept?

change damage to our economy than admitted by government or industry. Natural gas is not clean. In effect, Mr. Coleman is ignoring our need for a sustainable climate or economy. The effort to export more and more gas and oil and coal is short-term economic thinking that will cause enormous damage to our economy from climate change impacts in the future. The victims of this short-term thinking, our kids, will have to deal with the damage. I am discouraged, because it’s not just about Mr. Coleman. It’s about us. Any expression of concern for the environment, or the next generation, is like putting a dead rat in front of a nest of maggots — it starts an automatic feeding frenzy of self-entitlement. Yup, climate change is a fact and economic damage is piling up — Hurricane Sandy alone will cost about $70 billion. So a rational, and moral, response would be to phase out burning fossil fuels.

Group protesting Saltair development SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

A group of Saltair residents is crying foul, claiming the Cowichan Valley Regional District is helping developers instead of looking out for its taxpayers. Sherry Durnford said her group has applied thrice to speak as a delegation before the CVRD’s board of directors and all three times has been turned down. At issue for Durnford and friends is a piece of property in Saltair that was at one time a mobile home park. Years ago a developer bought the land and evicted the park’s residents, citing a plan to construct his family estate there. Those plans never materialized and the developer now seeks to subdivide the property into smaller lots for a new manufactured home park. “We feel that the developer’s interests have superseded the other residents’ from day one,” Durnford told the committee. She believes the CVRD has worked around their own bylaws to help park owners increase the housing density to much greater level than would be allowed with any other zoning. “There seems to be a determination at the CVRD to satisfy the developers of manufactured home

The original completion date for the $8-million contract was set for June 30 but has been pushed back three weeks to July 20.

parks at the expense of long-term residents in the community as a whole, rewarding developers…and removing affordable housing,” she added. Backing Durnford up were neighbours Ray Bradford, who called the CVRD a party to the “fraudulent evictions” of the old mobile home park’s former tenants, and Richard Graham who said residents aren’t opposed to all development, just this particular plan. Cobble Hill Area Dir. Gerry Giles explained to Durnford and company that they were indeed being afforded their democratic rights in speaking to the electoral area services committee Tuesday afternoon. “This committee is the committee that is charged with making land use decisions in electoral areas and although the board has the stamping authority on that it is the members of this committee that make that decision,” she said. As for the issue they are fighting, staff ’s recommendation to move ahead with the new development plans was approved during the meeting, according to planning and development manager Tom Anderson, and has been forwarded to the CVRD board for consideration.

Transportation and Infrastructure said. There have also been delays relocating utility lines. The busiest time to travel north on the Malahat is Friday afternoon. Heading south, it’s Sunday afternoons. The improvements include widening sections of the Malahat to accommodate medians, a safety measure meant to reduce the number of head-on collisions.

Cowichan Secondar y Grade 12 student Roland Ferguson was the big winner of the Cowichan Crime Stoppers organization’s poster contest. “The purpose for the contest was to raise awareness of the Crime Stoppers program in schools and to also promote the local Lions Clubs’ aims of supporting youth involvement in the community,” said Cowichan Crime Stoppers president Derek Crawford. The rules of the contest were simple. Students were asked to include the Crime Stoppers relevant contact information including “all calls are anonymous” in the makeup of the poster. The sky was the limit beyond that. When the dust settled Ferguson came out on top, winning a $500 prize thanks to his poster featuring a handful of anonymous callers signaling for the long arm of the law to pick up a would-be crook.

RCMP offering to take that gun off your hands during amnesty SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

North Cowichan/ Duncan residents can feel a little safer knowing six less firearms are in the community thanks to a provincewide gun amnesty. “So far we’ve had six firearms [turned in] which doesn’t sound like a lot but any firearms we receive is beneficial,” North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP spokesman Cpl. Jon Stuart said with one week to go in the turn-in period. “It’s very successful.” Stuart said five long guns (rifles/ shotguns) and one handgun had been turned in at the central Cowichan detachment alone. To participate in the program, all people will need to do is call their local police offices and give some details about where they live and about the weapons they’d like to surrender. Police will swing by the caller’s home to pick up the firearms and transport them away safely. The amnesty helps those who have inherited a gun or come

Cpl. Jon Stuart, RCMP upon one they don’t know what to do with, dispose if it safely, Stuart said. “You can have us take it off your hands and you wouldn’t be charged with possession of a prohibited weapon. That’s what the amnesty is designed to do — to get those guns off the street, as long as they’re not ‘crime guns’, that is guns used in the commission

of an offence.” After the amnesty ends on June 30, folks can still turn in their weapons if they choose. “I think the public needs to be aware that we are always open to them giving us a call and having you turn over to us any firearms or anything you have,” Stuart said, “It’s something that we like to see anyways.” Provincial statistics for just how many guns were turned over should be available in the first week of July, Stuart said. “While exact figures have not been determined, roughly 600 firearms and hundreds of rounds of ammunition have already been turned in to RCMP detachments across the province so far into the amnesty,” said Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens, commanding officer of the BC RCMP. “We are pleased with the participation we have received from B.C. residents and know that many more people out there are considering disposing [of] weapons they no longer want or need.”

The challenge this year was to construct coat racks, “and they are absolutely beautiful,” Lefebure said. “I heard one [North Cowichan] staff member trying to purchase these away from the proud parents.” Of course that didn’t work. For his third place efforts, Stokes earned a $200 prize. “Excellent,” said the mayor of his functional

The 10-stall, red brick roundhouse with turn table is a citydesignated heritage structure. The CPR argued in Supreme Court that, as a federally charted railway, its operations aren’t subject to municipal regulation. (Meaning that the roundhouse could go on leaking and rotting, “heritage” be damned.) After the city argued that the portion of the structure in question was no longer in use, both parties agreed to an out-of-court settlement by which the CPR committed to temporary roof repairs to the value of $100,000. “This could buy both parties,” in the words of a Heritage Canada press release, “the time needed to find a more permanent solution.” And so it goes, usually at the cost of more of our history. And so go I, raging against our shortsightedness and lobbying for our heritage when and where it can and should be saved. If that makes me a crank, so be it. I appear to be one of too few (alas) Canadians who care enough to take a stand. A stand for the ever fewer surviving relics of the millions of unsung men and women who built this land that we inheritors so blithely take as our own. We don’t seem to recognize that, for the most part, it’s ours by default not by merit. We didn’t build Canada, they did. They should be remembered and honoured. We can, we should — we must — do better than this. www.twpaterson.com

Lisa Pink wins national instructor award SARAH SIMPSON CITIZEN

With a warm smile, a helping hand and a complete and unwavering commitment to helping those who need it, Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association’s (CTRA) Lisa Pink is indeed a rare breed. That’s why it comes as no surprise to those associated with the program that Pink was this year’s recipient of the Andrea Gillies Award for Outstanding Instructor as presented by the national governing body for therapeutic riding in Canada, the Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association. “Lisa is an amazing instructor and it does not take long watching her interact with participants to know that you are witnessing someone who is incredible at what they do,” said Jennifer Barnes van Elk, the Cowichan organization’s executive director. “Lisa works with some of the most challenging situations and makes it look like a cake walk.”

An accomplished equestrian since her youth, Pink has turned her love of horses and of the sport into a way to help those who can truly benefit from the bonds created between horse and rider. The goals of therapeutic riding, also called equine assisted therapy, are different for every rider but the aims are to facilitate well-being by providing opportunities for persons living with disabilities. Positive physical, mental, behavioural, and cognitive results can result — but it takes a special instructor to help create change. “You would be hard pressed to find a person more dedicated to therapeutic riding and positively changing the lives of others,” Barnes van Elk said. “Lisa is at CTRA most days of the week — training horses, teaching lessons, mentoring candidate instructors, meeting with co-workers...Her dedication to the program knows no bounds.”

From the handsewn clothing on their backs, to hand-forged ironware tools and weapons, everything is as authentic as it can be. Later, well-known local musician Chuck McCandless will share his music out on the Pier, sponsored by the Rock Cod Café and Radway Studio. There will also be museum tours, conducted tours of the refitted 38-foot. Halcyon II flagship, a kids’ boat-building station, a bubble blowing station and a chance to win a

CUPE donations boost youth sports, arts

The union representing staff at North Cowichan, the CVRD, the City of Duncan, and a host of others around town, gave three deserving youth charities a welcome boost last week. On Friday CUPE Local 385 President Ron Salvati presented representatives of KidSport, Jumpstart, and the Cowichan Valley Performing Arts Foundation each with cheques for $1,000. Salvati said it was the first, but won’t be the last time that Local 385 will donate to such groups. “We are proud to give back to the community,” he said. KidSport Cowichan chair Deb Savory Wright said the organization is “thrilled” to receive the donation. “Having a local organization like CUPE support the work of KidSport Cowichan means more children in our community will have access to the positive experience of organized sport and physical activity,” Savory Wright said. Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program also helps kids get in the game by helping to offset the costs of sports equipment and registration fees. “We are very excited for CUPE’s support,” said Jumpstart administrator Denise Williams. “The need is always there.” The need has been well documented in sport but it’s also there in the world of performing arts. The $1,000 CUPE donation will help the fledgling Cowichan Valley Performing Arts Foundation, created in early 2012, help kids participate in arts-based endeavors. “With a mandate similar to KidSport, our goal is to provide some much-needed funding to underprivileged children and youth in the Cowichan Valley who wish to participate in performing arts activities,” said President Olivia Boudreau. “We look forward to sharing these funds with children and youth in need, as well as supporting Performing Arts programs throughout the Valley.”

ike Hennessy has ridden 16 MS Bike Tours, starting in the Lower Mainland and Alberta, and riding every Cowichan Valley Grape Escape since its inception in 2000. “My first tour in Richmond was just for fun — I’d never done a 70 kilometre ride in my life at that point. I’ve carried on riding as my primary way of keeping fit, and the MS Bike Tour fits in well to that plan.” Hennessy’s connection to the MS Society came through the event but soon he became an active volunteer for the society as well. “I didn’t know anyone

with MS at the start, and I still don’t have a personal connection to anyone with MS other than the many great friends I’ve made since 1994. I was recruited to the board of directors of the South Vancouver Island chapter where I contributed for nine years.” Hennessy’s family has also been involved in the event for many years. His triplet grandsons have been an annual feature. They attended first as babies and progressed to doing an honourary start on the second day on their tricycles. Now nine years old and adept two-wheelers, they look forward to following in their

grandfather’s footsteps and riding the entire route with him one day. Over the years Hennessy has raised close to $45,000 for the MS Society and has vowed not to stop until he hits $50,000. “We coined the team name Miracle Spinners to represent what this whole ride is about: making miracles possible, either in the research for a cure or in helping enhance the lives of people living with MS.” This year’s MS Bike Tour, takes place July 6 and 7.

ArtBeat takes Chemainus by storm June 28 With one year under its collective belt, ArtBeat is poised for another season of music, art and community building. The regular Friday night event that drew thousands of visitors to downtown Chemainus last summer will soon be back with just some minor tweaking to the format. “We were thrilled with the response to last year’s ArtBeat,” said organizer Phil Mavis. “So we’re just going to tighten up a few things and build on the success of what was a much-talkedabout event that Chemainiacs and visitors seemed to really enjoy.” ArtBeat will start a 10-week run beginning June 28 and will run Friday nights until the end of August. Another change will see the major entertainment showcase begin at about 8:15 p.m. “We know people want to be able to browse the artist’s booths and visit the stores on Willow Street, so we decided to hold off on the entertainment until later in the evening,” Mavis explained. “That way people can check out the artwork, listen to the buskers, do some shopping and then sit back and relax for a few minutes.” An exciting component of ArtBeat this year will be the addition of theme nights. The first will be “Hat Night” when organizers invite folks to don their most outlandish headgear and show it off. Painters, sculptors, photographers, potters and other artists and artisans who participated in the inaugural ArtBeat said they were pleased with the response from the public. Most of the same artists will be returning this year with several others are expected to be a part of the event that’s an excellent showcase of local and Vancouver Island talent. “ArtBeat brought the south block of Willow Street to life last summer,” Mavis said. “It was great to see people grooving to the music, dancing in the street and marveling at all the talent. “We know it’s going to be bigger and better in 2013.”

Seemingly confined specifically to the area right around the start line of Tuesday night’s Legion Twilight Shuffle in Chemainus, a rain storm pushed back the time of the 29th running of the 5k race, but wasn’t enough to cancel it. “It’s not that comfor table when it’s a downpour before the start,” organizer Phil Nicholls acknowledged. Other than the weather, there were no glitches, leaving Nicholls with a “good feeling” about the future of the event. “I want to make something great for the 30th year,” he stated. “We’ll get the numbers going in the other direction, make it bigger and better. I do have plans to make it a big surprise.” Next year’s Shuffle will take place later in the month, set for

June 24, which Nicholls thinks will help bolster participation. This year’s race attracted 150 entrants, down from nearly 1,000 at its peak, when special guests included Canadian country music star Michelle Wright and cast members from the Trailer Park Boys. Nicholls is grateful for all the support he has had from the Chemainus Legion and the Cowichan Valley, and wants to get it back to those lofty numbers. “We’re definitely capable of hitting 1,000,” he said. “I know that’s a big bar I’m setting.” Neil Holm of Courtenay had the top result on Tuesday, with a time of 17 minutes and 16 seconds. Shawnigan Lake’s Nancy Baxendale had the top female result, finishing in 19:23. In the under 10 age group, the top times were recorded by Danika Adelborg (32:54) and Dom-

inic Adelborg (34:45). In the 1115 group, it was Nyah Miranda (20:39) and Keating Teft (20:34), and for 16-19, it was Emily Adams (22:19) and Eric Hartford (19:17). The top runners in the 20-29 group were Robin Younie (30:08) and Taylor Adams (20:56). Angela Etherington (19:50) and Rick Lane (21:02) set the pace for the 30-39 division, and Tanya Goldsbury (23:39) joined Holm to lead the 4049 group. In the 50-59 group, Baxendale and Peter Holmes (18:37) had the top times. Rae Trajan (31:24) and Rhys Harrison (21:08) were first across the line in the 60-69 division, and Christine Rodgers (30:44) and Lynn Thompson (26:31) led the 70-79 group. There were no female entries in the 80-99 age class, but Jim McLean had the top male time at 30:32.

Chemainus midgets win division KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

A late surge in the final game gave the Galletto Market Chemainus Midgets first place as the division playoffs were held in Chemainus and Ladysmith last weekend. Chemainus fell behind Ladysmith by six runs in the final before Taylor McCormick kicked off a five-run rally in the fourth inning to narrow the gap to one. In the bottom of the seventh, with Chemainus batting last, Mason LaFrance came in to tie it up. Jared Roberts came to the plate with the bases loaded and

was hit by a pitch, forcing in the winning run. Other than the host teams, the eight-game tournament included Port Alberni, Nanaimo, and two teams from Oceanside. Alberni mercied Oceanside #2 to claim third place. The Chemainus players had a scare in their game against Nanaimo when catcher Keith Fukakusa had to be helped off the field with a torn medial meniscus and hamstring suffered while sliding in safely to third base. Chemainus’s tournament MVPs were Fukakusa, McCormick and Liam Hutchinson.

The last few weeks have produced some more fantastic results for the Duncan Dragons fastpitch team. Facing some of the best teams in the Pacific Northwest in the International Youth Challenge tournament in Mount Vernon, Washington, earlier this month, the Dragons placed second. The Duncan squad lost their opener to the Washington Crusaders (A) by a score of 5-1. Bouncing back quickly, the Dragons blew up the Washington TNT 9-1. Kailin Snow and Makenna Campbell each went 3-for-3 with a double. The following Day, Duncan lost 6-1 to the Washington Shock (A) before beating Island rivals Peninsula 10-9 in extra innings, followed by another win over the Washington TNT, this time 7-5.

Reaching the final, the Dragons ran out of gas and lost 9-1 to the Sno-Co Express. A week after the Mount Vernon tournament, the Dragons were in action at their district playoffs. Needing a third-place finish to qualify for provincials, the Duncan team did exactly that. The Dragons beat Strawberry Vale 7-1 in the quarters, then lost 8-7 to Peninsula in the semifinal. “We spotted them eight runs before the girls got it going,” said Coach Olender. “Unfortunately we just came up short. Our goal this year has always been to get back to the show and see if we can have another run like last year.” The Dragons will be back in action next month with the Canadian Open Fastpitch Championships in Vancouver on July 12-15 and the midget B provincials at Cordova Bay on July 18-21.

CWFL’s Crew retain their title KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Crew may have lost some of their players to the upstart Blue Steel Brew at the start of the Cowichan Women’s Football League season, but they didn’t lose any of their dominance. The Crew once again won the CWFL championship, beating the Ravens 53-7 in the title game last Saturday. “We didn’t know what to expect this year with so many players leaving the team to start a new one,” said longtime Crew star Jackie Harrison. “We had a few obstacles this season with a lack of players in the beginning and a few injuries, but we were able to pick up some great additions to the team. Some new players and a couple of veterans from the league made for a successful season in the end.” Harrison had a touchdown and an interception for the Crew. Mary-Lou Sullivan had three majors, Willy Toews had two, and Alita Mattin, Jenni Hittinger and Janelle Mould also contributed singles. Toews and Mould added interceptions, and Mattin, Sullivan and Hittinger had converts. Jamie Russell had the first touchdown of the game for the Ravens. Unfortunately, it was all the team would muster. “The Ravens were determined to win and stay in game mode,” said Dana Thorne. “We marched

With a handful of players absent, the pee wee Cowichan Bulldogs had their work cut out for them as they faced the secondranked Westshore Warriors in the semifinals of the Greater Victoria Minor Football Association’s Gold Cup. The Bulldogs found a way to win, however, and vanquished the Warriors 18-16. “I am so proud of this pee wee team for the grit and determination that they have shown not just in this last game, but throughout the entire season,” said coach Trent Jones. The Cowichan offence was stymied early on, but the Cowichan defence got things going when Jake Paras forced a fumble that was recovered by Reiley Zarate,

“We didn’t know what to expect this year with so many players leaving the team to start a new one.”

as time ticked down. After the next kickoff, the Cowichan offence called a time out, and Swanson stepped up as team captain, delivering an inspiring speech. On the next play, McCuaig-Jones followed a wall of blockers, including Brayden Belton and Ryan Haywood, around the left side and ran 67 yards to give his team the lead. “That touchdown run was scored by every player on that field during that play,” said Jones. “We had blocks all the way to the third level. It was a very impressive team effort.” The pee wees will play the Saanich Wolverines for the Gold Cup at Bear Mountain Stadium this Sunday at 3 p.m. On Saturday, the atom and pre-atom Bulldogs will play for their respective Silver Cups.

the ball down the field and just before scoring the first touchdown of the game our QB Rikki Wylie injured her hamstring and was unable to run. This brought us down to six players and left our morale low.” The Ravens were helped somewhat by the return at halftime of one long-injured player, but the loss of Wylie was impossible to overcome. “It was heartbreaking to say the least to make the finals for the first time to have one of our key players taken out from injury in the first 10 minutes of the game,” said Thorne. Marika Richard of the Wildfire was named the league’s rookie of the year, and Jamie Olson of the Law was named CWFL MVP. “She proves time and time again how valuable and strong she is on the field,” Thorne commented. The seven CWFL teams will be joined this weekend by nine more from out of town for the Sun Bowl XXVIII. Games will take place at McAdam Park and Cowichan Secondary School on Saturday, and at McAdam on Sunday.

who ran back 85 yards for a touchdown. Westshore took over from there, and moved the ball down the field to take an 8-6 lead. Bulldogs fullback Bailey Lamont broke free for a touchdown, but had it called back on a penalty. Three plays later, Zarate completed a pass to Damian McCuaig-Jones, who went to the end zone for a touchdown that counted. A fumble by Cowichan allowed the Warriors to get great field position before halftime, but linemen Logan Swanson and Dennis McDonnell led a defensive stand that kept the lead in the Bulldogs’ hands. The third quarter went scoreless, but Westshore once again gained good field position after another fumble, and punched into the end zone to take a 16-12 lead

A 12-3 win over Vic-Esquimalt last Saturday kicked off a strong stretch for the bantam B Cowichan Valley Thunder. The Thunder scored seven times in the first period of the rout. Zander Cozine allowed just three goals, all in the second period. Gavin Spencer scored a hat trick, Caleb Nordstrom, Liam Joe and Parker Teufel had two goals each, and Brayden Grantham and Clayton Raphael scored singles. The Thunder travelled to Port Alberni the next day, and kept the

game close until the final seconds, when they lost 5-4. Michael Shepherd provided half of the Thunder’s offence, while Grantham and Spencer had one each. On Wednesday, the team headed north for their final regular-season game against Oceanside, winning 6-1. Teufel strapped on the pads in Cozine’s place and did a great job. Grantham and Will Wright had two goals apiece, and Nordstrom and Raphael potted one each.

The Lion Hunter PURSUING A DREAM:

Bulldogs’ youngest coach is all business KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Hunter Brockenborough made his coaching debut with the atom Cowichan Bulldogs this spring, and is hoping to climb the ranks all the way to the CFL’s B.C. Lions. [KEVIN ROTHBAUER/CITIZEN]

Hockey Players Get Ready for the 2013/14 Season!

Hunter Brockenborough dreams of coaching the B.C. Lions. It’s a goal he takes very seriously. When Lions running back Andrew Harris heard of Hunter’s plans, he said to the 10-year-old Cowichan kid, “Maybe you’ll coach me.” “If you’re any good,” came the reply. When it comes to football, Hunter is all business. Travis Lulay found out when Hunter wouldn’t let the Lions’ star quarterback — one of his favourite players — sign his hat lest it look less than perfect. Hunter made the first steps in his career this spring when he joined the Cowichan Bulldogs’ staff. His first choice would be to be on the field in uniform, but unfortunately, he is battling a rare skeletal disease — Klippel-Feil syndrome — that prevents him from playing contact sports. “Football, of course, is his absolute favourite sport,” said Hunter’s mom, Linnette, rolling her eyes. Hunter comes from a family of football fans, particularly of the CFL. In his case, however, it goes a little farther. “It’s a bit of an infatuation,” said Linnette. As Linnette was driving Hunter to school earlier this year, an ad for Bulldogs registration came on the radio, and she couldn’t help but notice her son’s reaction. “His face just fell,” she said. Linnette went home and “ranted” on Facebook. “I said, ‘My kid loves football so much. Does anyone know a way we could get involved?’” she recalled. “Within 20 minutes, I heard from the organization.”

Big Mountain Hockey School Lake Cowichan Arena

It turned out that there was an opening for an assistant coach on Jeff McDonald’s staff. McDonald met with Hunter and decided to take him on. “It has been the most incredible experience,” said Linnette. “The whole organization is a family. Everybody has totally embraced him.” Hunter hasn’t been the only beneficiary of the partnership. “He’s had a huge effect on the organization,” said McDonald. “He’s definitely a member of the family now.” McDonald has coached with the Bulldogs for many years, but having such a young and wellinformed assistant is a new experience for him. “We get to see the players grow as players and develop their football IQ, and now we get to see it with a coach,” he said. “He’s on the sideline now, and he makes sense. It’s amazing how much he knows.” McDonald has always promoted football as a sport that anyone can be involved in. Hunter has only helped bolster that argument. “It’s proof in the pudding that football has a place for anybody.” Typically the atom players — ages 11 and 12 — listen to Hunter, although there are times when they can be frustrating. “Sometimes they don’t [listen],” he noted. Hunter has to abide by the same rules as the other coaches, including a ban on swearing, which he says he has never done. Not that it makes a difference to the players. “Some of the players already know bad habits,” he grumbled. One of the coaches with whom Hunter has aligned himself closely is offensive coordinator Dallas Price. “It’s been amazing,” said Price. “He’s inspirational. Not just for the kids, but for me, too. I’m glad we took him on.” The players on the atom team respect Hunter, who has started calling plays and creating his own drills for practice. “He knows the game,” said Price. “I think he’s learned a lot this year.” The spring football season is

LINNETTE BROCKENBOROUGH, Hunter’s mom

just about over. The atom and pre-atom Bulldogs will play for their respective Silver Cups in Langford this Saturday, while Hunter’s brother Gavin and the pee wee Bulldogs will play for the Gold Cup on Sunday. Hunter is a little wary going into the Silver Cup final because his team will have to make some big changes in terms of strategy. “This game, we’re playing something we’ve never played before,” he said. “The league is making us play 12-man football. We’ve been playing nine-man all year.” Because of their low numbers, the Bulldogs have played nine-aside all season, and their opponents have respected their wishes. For the final, however, that’s not going to fly. Hunter isn’t too concerned, knowing his players can handle the change. “They’re gonna figure it out easily,” he said. The season might be ending this weekend, but Hunter’s fight with Klippel-Feil syndrome will continue. “His battle’s not over by any means,” said Coach Price. Hunter faces a costly trip to Texas for treatment at the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio. On June 30, a fundraising barbecue will be held at Zanatta winery’s Vinoteca restaurant. Tickets are available from the Brockenborough family, Zanatta, and Bistro 161 in downtown Duncan. The event will feature a silent auction, including items donated by Hunter’s Xbox buddy, Lions linebacker Adam Bighill. Linnette has already been overwhelmed by the Cowichan Valley’s support of her family. “The community has been phenomenal,” she said. “I can’t say enough about this community coming together when a family needs it.” COUPON
