Few choices for special-needs youth entering adulthood West Shore families launching own day program

behavioural and cognitive issues. The girls — Corrine Eisenstein and Ciarra Blahitka — have cerebral palsy and limited mobility, and are in wheelchairs. Since turning 19, the group aged out of their Belmont secondary lifeskills day program, but no similar programs for adults at the necessary level of care exists on the West Shore. In response, the parents are launching their own program from scratch, called West Shore InclusionWorks. They are pooling limited funding resources to rent a suitable space, supply it with activity gear, and hire three specialized, full-time care workers. Each youth is allotted funding from Community Living B.C. (CLBC) for support hours, and together the group has $42,000 per year in funding from the South Island Distance Education School (SIDES) for two years, although it remains unclear if that is enough to pay for the high level of care. “The plan is to pool whatever funds from CLBC, SIDES into one pot,� said Kris Eisenstein, mother of Corrine. “The question becomes: is that amount enough to sustain one-on-one support for Ben and Shayne and enough for the two girls?� The group found inspiration from InclusionWorks in Victoria, started by Arlene Zuckernick and Eleanor Liddy in September 2010. Zuckernick said a key goal for the West Shore group is to build

In his Henrik Sedin jersey and padded helmet, Shayne Downton smiles and hugs his mom, and goes off to watch Disney cartoons. Gregarious and friendly, the big 19-year-old loves his computer, swimming and delivering newspapers. Born with Dravet syndrome, his motor skills and speech development are similar to a three-year-old and he suffers grand mal seizures, perhaps once a week these days. “He needs one-on-one care. He can’t be left alone at all,� said his mom Debra Downton at their Langford home. “He has no concept of safety. He could run into the road or burn himself on the stove. And his seizures have increased in the past few years — the bigger he is harder he falls.� The Downtons and three other West Shore families are bonded together through their adult children, all who live with developmental challenges and all who turned 19 this year. The boys — Shayne and Ben Defrane — have Dravet and autism respectively, with associated

Shayne Downton and his mom Debra share a laugh in their Langford home. The Downtons and three other West Shore families are banding together to create a day program for their children.

“They are out of school, but their needs don’t change. Their disabilities don’t magically disappear, but the supports disappear.� –Kris Eisenstein

partnerships within the community — Victoria InclusionWorks networks with University of Victoria and Camosun, and a number of businesses and agencies. “You have to look locally for resources, create partnerships and assume you’ll get as much as you give,� Zuckernick said. “You

just have to jump in and do it. If you wait for the system to catch up with you, it won’t.� Where Victoria InclusionWorks focuses on preparing specialneeds adults for jobs or volunteer positions, the West Shore group has a different aim, and an added dimension of difficulty. They need to rent a space that’s wheelchair accessible, on a bus route and can meet the specific and complex physical needs of the boys and girls. “The girls are very sociable, their cognitively a lot higher. Their needs are totally different (than the boys),� Eisenstein said. “But they are physically dependent. That is the catch." The parent group says it’s been a frustrating process learning that the Belmont program is closed off and then having barely a few months to cobble together something similar. The stress is mount-

ing — the parents work full time jobs and care for their kids, which is a full time task in itself. None of the four teens can be left alone for extended periods of the day. It’s also frustrating the funding rules change at an arbitrary point. The level of provincial support fell as the kids ticked over to age 19, said Scott Downton, Shayne’s dad. Shayne’s $1,000 per month for respite and support workers was cut by more than half. “They are out of school, but their needs don’t change,� Eisenstein said. “Their disabilities don’t magically disappear, but the supports disappear.� “Turning 19 is traumatic,� agreed Zuckernick. “It’s like falling off a cliff, but the system is much better than it used to be.� PLEASE SEE: Parents, Page A7

Young farmers take the rural life online “People interested in local food want to know the story behind their vegetables. Knowing I have a wider readership gives me more incentive to write.”

Sam Van Schie News staff

As young people everywhere put their lives on display on networking websites, some Metchosin farmers are using social media to share the rural life with city dwellers. Heather Ramsay, 28, was living in Vancouver before taking an apprentice at Uminami Farm, where she now spends long days working alone in the fields. “It was a struggle to adjust to not seeing people,” she said. Already a casual blogger, Ramsay started posting entries about her time on the farm to keep her friends and family updated. And because the 15-year-old farm hasn’t joined the online world with a website of its own, her blog also attracted attention from Uminami customers. “People interested in local food want to know the story behind their vegetables,” she said. “Knowing I have a wider readership gives me more incentive to write.” This season, her second with Uminami, Ramsay has chronicled the growth of her greens through a colder-than-usual spring and shared her experiments with watering techniques. Recently she wrote about planting seeds for a winter harvest in the height of summer. “It can be hard to find the time (to blog) when there’s so much that needs to get done around the farm,” Ramsay admitted. But as any entrepreneur knows, holding a presence online is becoming an expected part of doing business. Since taking charge of the Sea Bluff Farms, Adam Saab, 29, has pushed the 30-year-old farm into the digital age, opening a company Facebook, Twitter and BlogSpot account. He’s currently finalizing logos and design to launch the farm’s first official website. “People used to want to come out and see the farm, but now they can just look at photos online and see what we’re doing,” Saab said.

–Heather Ramsay Sea Bluff Farm

Sam Van Schie/News staff

Metchosin farmers Heather Ramsay and Adam Saab each write blogs about their work for an audience of city-dwellers. They also organize the Metchosin Farm Hub to connect with other farmers online.

“It’s a way to nurture relationships with clients, which any small business needs to do to stick in people’s mind.” The farm blog centres around its Bluff Box program, which delivers seasonal vegetables to homes in Victoria each week. Saab posts weekly recipes using box ingredients, including suggestions from his subscribers. “This is all on top of the regular farm work,” Saab said. “It’s usually after the sun goes down that I have time to post.” In the off season, Ramsay and Saab also moderate a Google group of about 30 local farmers, dubbed the Metchosin Farm Hub. They currently use it to organize and promote social events, such as potlucks and harvest celebrations for volunteer workers on area farms. But they hope it could develop into a tool to stay connected with the neighbours year-round to ask advice or give warning of new pests that may be affecting crops. “It can really become whatever people want it to be” Ramsay said. “We just started it as a way to feel less alone out here.” Farmers in or near Metchosin who want to join the group can send a message to metchosin-farm-hub@googlegroups.com.

Region’s housing sales lean to buyer’s market Greater Victoria is seeing continued downward pressure on housing prices as statistics released this week show slowing sales and an uptick of inventory on the real estate market. July had 523 home sales in Greater Victoria, which include single family homes, townhomes, condos, mobile homes and empty lots, according to the Victoria Real Estate Board’s multiple listing service. The volume is nearly 100 less than June

2011 with 618 sales, but is similar to July 2010 which had 527 sales. “In the coming months, we anticipate that market activity will remain relatively stable and similar to what we saw during the summer and early fall months of last year,” Dennis Fimrite, Victoria Real Estate Board president said in a release. The region had 5,094 properties for sale at the end of July, a 14 per cent increase compared to a year ago. June 2011 had

5,050 properties for sale. With that volume, Fimrite said sellers need to be “realistic in pricing,” suggesting Greater Victoria to some degree is a buyer’s market. Home sales on the West Shore remain relatively robust, with 30 single family home sales in Langford and 13 in Colwood in July. The main difference from a year ago is price: this year the average sale price in

Langford was $493,000 versus $499,000 in 2010. Colwood too saw downward pressure, with the average sale price at about $490,000 versus $513,000 one year ago. The story is the same for condominiums. Langford saw 19 sold in July for an average $276,000. More condos were sold than in July 2010, but for about $7,000 less on average. See www.vreb.org for current and historical pricing statistics.

Malahat bypass frustrates Highlands District seeks better traffic management for highway crashes Charla Huber News staff

When tragedy strikes on the Malahat Drive, often it’s Finlayson Arm Road in Highlands that ends up picking up the slack. After the fatal motorcycle crash on July 1, many Highlands residents had a hard time getting home due to a long string of cars on Millstream Road trying to bypass the crash scene by using Finlayson Arm Road. On Canada Day, Highlands Coun. Sigurd Johannesen was heading into Langford on Millstream Road, when he came up to the traffic jam. He got out of his car and started walking the line of cars talking to the drivers. “The road was all backed up and no one knew why,” Johannesen said. He found many frustrated Highlands residents had to wait in line along with the drivers heading toward the Malahat. The Ministry of Transportation uses a pilot car to guide one-way traffic along the three-kilometre

Finlayson Arm Road during crashes that shut down the highway, but Johannesen said waiting drivers should pull to the side of the road. That would allow Highlands residents to get home without waiting long periods of time. “The idea is getting traffic (waiting to use Finlayson Arm Road) on the shoulder,” Johannesen said. He also suggested that the ministry needs at least two people helping direct traffic, with one at the entrance to Highlands to explain the situation to waiting motorists. In April when a fuel tanker truck crashed on the Malahat spilling more than 42,000 litres of fuel into Goldstream River, traffic plugged Finlayson Arm Road while the highway was closed for 22 hours. In the wake of the crash, Highlands met with the Ministry of Transportation, the City of Langford and roads contractors. “The issue is there are two types of traffic trying to get into Highlands and they need to remember that,” said Highlands administrator Chris Coates. “They need to stage the traffic and extract the local traffic.” Coates noted that Millstream Road is wide with large shoulders, and drivers could easily pull over so local residents could

Sigurd Johannesen, standing at the intersection of Millstream Raod and Finlayson Arm Road, wants to see some changes for how rural lane is used during emergencies. pass by. “In a bad (crash or emergency) it can be a while. (Waiting in the car for) an hour would be nothing, it could more than a couple hours,” Coates said. Johannesen also noted that many people are now using the

winding single-lane Finlayson Arm Road to bypass highway traffic. The rural road is the only bypass for crashes between Goldstream Park and Langford, other than the Marine Circle Route from Sooke to Lake Cowichan and Duncan.

“People get frustrated because of the congestion on the highways on the weekends,” Johannesen said. “The real solution is (for the province) to find an alternative route.” reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

After five years of painstaking work, civilian employees at CFB Esquimalt are celebrating a year of major accomplishments as they prepare Canada’s flagship submarine HMCS Victoria for diving. “All these major milestones are long overdue and great for morale,” said Phil McEvoy, production manager of the fleet maintenance facility, tasked with overhauling and outfitting the vessel with weapons capabilities. The boat, which was tugged out of drydock in April and tied alongside a dockyard jetty, is being readied for a dive this

summer, possibly in early September. “What that tells you is that it can go down and come back up on her own air systems, which is critical,” McEvoy said, noting the boat will be relocated to a nearby jetty for the day-long event. “They’ve (dredged) out a spot where she actually can go all the way down without touching bottom and be actually submerged (12 to 18 metres deep),” McEvoy said. The complexity of Victoria’s overhaul makes it difficult to schedule far in advance when major milestones will take place, such as when the boat undergoes a deep-sea dive in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Although Victoria’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Christopher Ellis, hoped to navigate the vessel into the strait in July, the plan now is to conduct full sea trials later this year.

“(Submarines are) a very complex thing, so one little thing can delay you a day or two,” said McEvoy. “Even when you start to involve yourself with them, you start to scratch your head on how complex they are,” he said. “This is all brand new ground. Even the Brits didn’t do what we’re doing to this class of vessel.” Changes made to the sub are significant. “It’s night and day,” said McEvoy. “She’s in pristine condition from when we’ve started. “When refits are done, it’s quite impressive — the shave and a haircut — what it can make a ship or a boat look like.” Workers at the fleet maintenance facility will also continue to maintain and repair other Canadian subs HMCS Chicoutimi and Corner Brook once they are operational. HMCS Windsor is being refitted in Halifax.

Gas line break clears Langford homes Edward Hill

Anyone digging into the ground is recommended to call the “BC OneCall” service to obtain maps for any underground utility, Wong said, and any operator should hand dig until they find the utility line. Dyck, who used to run an excavator himself, said he witnessed the contractor hand digging the trench in search of the gas lines. Happy Valley Road was closed for most of the morning and early afternoon near Klahanie Drive into Metchosin as Fortis crews worked to shut down the leak. A few residents and a day care were evacuated as a

precaution, but Beckett said risk of explosion was limited. A risk of ignition exists from a cigarette or static electricity but lighter-than-air natural gas dissipates into the atmosphere quickly. “It sounded like a jet engine going off. It’s a lot of high pressure, a lot of gas being released into the atmosphere,” Beckett said. “There is a risk, but under these conditions, being a six-inch, had there been a source of ignition, the flames would have gone directly into the sky.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Come September, it will be a tough transition for the four youth. Shayne, for one, has spent the last five years at Belmont — it’s what he knows and is looking forward to. With his support worker, he went swimming and shopping at the mall. They’ve helped sort bottles at Alpine recycling and he holds a small paper route with the Goldstream Gazette. “Shayne talks about school everyday, about his computer, about his TA,” Debra said. “They need structured programs. They want to be active members of the community.” “They had such wonderful support at Belmont and they want to stay in this community,” remarked Lynne-Mari Defrane, mother of Ben. “If we want that to continue, the only way to do that is to set up a program like this.” The parents are seeking a space that is affordable and meets the specific needs of the group.

If you have normal vision, you should be able to see objects clearly whether they are near or far away. When your eye doctor examines your eyes he will measure your vision at long distance as well as close up. The measurement for distance vision is usually taken at 20 feet. A test for near vision is usually taken at the normal reading distance or about 16 inches. Near vision is used for reading, sewing, eating and any other activity in which the object you are looking at is within arms length. Intermediate vision includes computer screens, music on a stand, cards on a table etc. Distance vision is considered anything beyond that point. This would include looking at television or at people across the room, even though the distance is relatively short. You need to see clearly wherever you happen to be looking. Straining your eyes to try to see objects clearly can often cause headaches and other discomfort. If you think you may need glasses or contact lenses or a new lens correction, see your family optometrist for an examination.

Langford residents were evacuated from their homes after a contractor accidentally cracked open a natural gas main on Lomalinda Drive in the Happy Valley area last Thursday. The roar of venting natural gas could be heard across the area from 9 a.m. for more than twoand-a-half hours as FortisBC crews dug two holes in Happy Valley Road to crimp the six-inch line. Resident Dennis Dyck was enjoying a coffee in his backyard when he heard what to him sounded like a torn air compressor hose. “The sound was amazingly loud,” he said while waiting in his truck a few blocks from his house. Langford fire Chief Bob Beckett confirmed a backhoe operator hit the gas line while digging into Lomalinda Drive for the instalVideo lation of a larger water line. online “The operator wasn’t aware the This story has accompanygas line was in this ing video images at www. location, according goldstreamgazette.com. to his plans,” Beckett said. FortisBC spokesperson Marcus Wong couldn’t say if there are discrepancies between the gas line map and gas lines in the ground in this case, but stressed the company provides detailed maps to the public. “When it comes to maps we have a proven track record, we have very accurate maps,” he said. Wong confirmed the company doesn’t mark gas line locations on the roadway prior to roadwork. A different contractor broke open a smaller natural gas line earlier last week on the other side of Lomalina Drive. Beckett said two breaks near the same location is a concern and WorksafeBC and Langford engineering are working with FortisBC and the contractors.

OUR VIEW

Hold officials accountable I

t would be hard to argue that knowing the name of every person slapped with an administrative penalty for drinking and driving was in the public interest. But what if that person is a senior official responsible for public safety? Three months ago, an Esquimalt assistant fire chief was pulled over and given a 90-day driving ban for drinking before he drove, off-duty. Neither the fire department, nor the Township of Esquimalt, released the information to the public. Even some Esquimalt councillors, who have the ultimate say in the department’s management, weren’t informed. In fact, the incident only came to light after an anonymous source tipped off a local media outlet. Had George McGregor been criminally charged with impaired driving, the information would have been made public through court records. For someone in his position, that information should have been provided to the public regardless of a criminal charge, off-duty or on. The same rules apply in any B.C. municipality — the names of public safety officials who receive administrative driving penalties are not released. Only a criminal charge would bring such transgressions to light. McGregor’s actions represent a potentially dangerous indiscretion unbecoming of a public safety official. While public safety officials are human just like the rest of us, they have a responsibility to display a high standard of discipline as role models. Public bodies must remain accountable, especially where safety is concerned. While the rules might not dictate so, these agencies should step up and disclose the transgressions of their members — criminal or otherwise. For one thing, it would encourage these individuals to be more mindful of the important role they play in the eyes of the public. More importantly, in circumstances like McGregor’s, it could have opened a public dialogue into the usefulness and validity of the police-juried roadside prohibitions for drinking and driving.

municipalities. As a result, local representatives, including school district trustees, more than ever before directly affect the quality of our lives and our families' lives. We ought to make sure we pay careful attention to all their actions and policies in the lead up to the elections this fall so that we re-elect or elect the best of them. Voter turnout in municipal elections in B.C. is woefully low and we must all work to reverse this trend. Paying close attention to municipal issues has drawn us to look more carefully at the Capital Region District. Did you know that the CRD has an operating expense budget of almost $185 million for 2011? This is an astounding amount. To be clear about $88 million of this from taxes but another $90 million is from user fees. This huge bureaucracy has

over 500 full time equivalent staff positions, many at high salaries. One way or another you pay for all of it. Not only is the CRD questionably large and an additional level of costs and bureaucracy in addition to our 13 municipalities and two electoral areas in the CRD, but it many say that it may well have structural flaws in its decision making processes. We need a close examination of how we govern ourselves in southern Vancouver Island. Currently the CRD makes all its major decisions on the basis of population size or budget size of each municipality — in other words it is in effect a “weighted vote.” This means that Victoria and the Saanich municipalities can, and often do, out vote the West Shore municipalities on many issues. This is very troubling

given the fact that the West Shore is growing at an unprecedented rate while Victoria and Saanich are growing very little. Granted the West Shore municipalities need to do a much better job of speaking with one voice. A recent example of CRD decision making is the support by Victoria and Saanich for the BC Transit $1 billion light rail plan, but no municipality in the West Shore endorsed this overall plan, preferring instead the use of the E&N corridor at a much lower cost. Those representing the past (slow growth municipalities) are deciding the future for high growth municipalities — a sure recipe for disaster that has to change. Let's enter a healthy debate about how to do just that. dspinner@westshore.bc.ca — Dan Spinner is the CEO for the WestShore Chamber of Commerce.

LETTERS Colwood’s mayor hard to replace Re: Colwood’s mayor stepping aside in November, News, Aug. 3, 2011 In my opinion not having Mayor Dave Saunders run again is a loss to Colwood taxpayers. Saunders has done more for Colwood than any mayor they have had before and he will be hard to replace. But things change, and usually for the better. Good luck for the future, Mayor Dave Saunders.

been nothing short of appalling as they try to again mislead voters. Government is clearly just lackeys for big business, nothing new with Premier Christy Clark. It is clear that families first for her is the same big business family Campbell loved. As the Gazette is owned by big business it is no shock your biased editorial sides with government.

Birds of the same feather? Politics posturing. An example:

the U.S. debt crisis. Were those people in Washington, as seen on television, really trying to hammer out a deal or were they just grandstanding for political gain? And, here in Canada, does the Ottawa crowd act any differently? Who there really cares about important issues that need addressing? It would be a treat to see and experience real support for what is truly important to taxpayers, from whom those in Ottawa receive a good income and an even better pension. Don Wilkes Langford

BC Hydro needs to change course Re: Green Party gets lost in the static, B.C. Views, Aug. 3, 2011. Tom Fletcher is correct. The 2009 B.C. Greens platform had a time line that included smart metering by 2012. We did not recommend wireless meters because, as Fletcher mentioned, we have precautionary policy on EMF radiation. Our policy was revised in 2010.

John Horgan

The initiatives we wanted implemented prior to new meters — feed-in tariffs, time-of-day pricing and regional management boards — were not in progress at the end of 2009 so that the timeline for smart metering was eliminated. Without being tied to substantial energy conservation, BC Hydro’s smart meter program is simply a different and more expensive way to collect data. A billion dollars invested in conservation and energy retrofits, diversifying to renewable energy or any number of priorities should precede changing meters. Fletcher may dismiss health concerns associated with Wi-Fi but people have a right to feel safe and healthy in their own homes. Those who choose not to use wireless technology should not be forced to do so. As I said at the news conference, wireless smart meters are a technological solution looking for a problem. With shrewd marketing, the companies that developed wireless smart meters have become wealthy with sole-source contracts from government after government. Letters continued on Page A10

City of Langford Notice of Disposition of Closed Road The City of Langford gives notice of its intention to transfer the closed portion of Isabell Avenue, which was closed by Bylaw Number 1225, 2009, as amended, as shown in Plan EPP11687 below, to 689265 B.C. Ltd. The closed portion of highway will be transferred to 689265 B.C. Ltd. in exchange for new Strata Lot 7 as shown in Plan EPS395below, to be transferred to the City of Langford promptly after the strata subdivision occurs. The closed road portion is 227.4 m² in area and Strata Lot 7 is 383 m² in area.

At some point, given deficits and debt load, we will need to reverse the decision-making process so long-term plans actually precede implementation of new technology. Other jurisdictions are putting moratoriums on or cancelling the installation of smart meters. We are recommending BC Hydro listen to valid privacy, security and health concerns and change course. Jane Sterk Leader Green Party of B.C.

Another disaster lurks in Africa With the famine in Somalia a new threat to millions of lives, it might seem an unlikely time to call for increased spending on HIV/TB co-infection. But the disaster in the Horn of Africa has been years in the making, in no small part due to global neglect. It’s the old thumbs twiddling while Rome burns. Much could have been done, but wasn’t, and now the world is responding after the

fact, when countless lives have already been lost and aid is much more difficult to provide. As in Somalia, there is another long-term disaster stalking Africa that is the result of neglect. But unlike Somalia, it is absurdly simple to solve. It is estimated that of the millions of individuals being treated for HIV infection (at a cost of hundreds of dollars a year per person), less than five per cent have been screened for TB, which is the primary killer of those living with HIV. This despite the fact that screening is very simple — eight questions are asked, and if the results are positive the patient is given a medical test. Treatment is less than $20 per year. It is estimated that two million HIV survivors will die from preventable TB in the next three years. Somalia is an example of what happens when the world looks the other way, and given the violent politics of the region, easy or quick solutions to the crisis are not available. Recently the federal government committed $50 million in assistance and promised to match dollar-for-dollar any

donations made by Canadians. This is laudable, but at the same time, Canadian funding for HIV has decreased, and spending on TB has been stagnating for years. We have a choice: we can bury the bodies after the fact, wasting millions of dollars in the process, or we can be proactive and easily save lives. TB might be less dramatic than dust storms and packed refugee camps, but the results are the same. Nathaniel Poole Victoria

BC Transit creates recipe to kill ridership I am delighted to hear of the increased ridership for BC Transit. I wonder if the increase in ridership in Victoria had to do with the two-way transfer which would allow for a return ride and a shopping trip.

Your plants are happier without soggy roots.

Give shrubs & plants the right amount of water. Many problems with shrubs, hedges and perennials result from over-watering. Before you water, check the soil to a depth of 10 to 15 cm (4” – 6”). If it is moist, it is not necessary to add more water. Call CRD Demand Management for more information or for a copy of our Waterfacts sheets on watering flower and vegetable gardens.

Despite the time-consuming job, a waiting list of ships requiring the drydock did not materialize. “What probably hurt the most was we sometimes do work on some of the more auxiliary, the smaller (vessels) around here that we would use the drydock for, and those basically got contracted out,” said Phil McEvoy, production manager of the base fleet maintenance facility.

B.C. film fund to pitch locations Tom Fletcher Black Press

Do you need a castle for your super-hero action movie? Rolling ranch land for a western? The B.C. Film Commission and its regional agencies around the province are building up their library of film locations in an effort to maintain B.C.'s $1 billion film and television industry. The provincial government contributed $275,000 to that effort last week, to be shared by film and tourism organizations around the province. Of that, the Greater Victoria Film Commission received $40,000. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Ida Chong made the announcement at Hatley Castle, which became famous as a location for the X-Men movie franchise. B.C. Film Commissioner Susan Croome said B.C.'s spectacular scenery and movie expertise have helped it become the third largest film and television production centre in North America, behind only Los Angeles and New York. About 25,000 people work in the B.C. industry. Peter Leitch, chair of the Motion Picture Industry Association of B.C., said the funds will help local people supply information and pictures for producers matching scripts with possible locations.

Man faces charges in stabbing death Erin Cardone News staff

Joshua Tyler Bredo could be charged in connection with the stabbing death of Daniel Jordan Levesque on Aug. 3. Bredo, 26, of Victoria, appeared at a telebail hearing Thursday evening. Police forwarded a murder charge against Bredo, but Crown counsel has yet to approve that charge. At about 5 p.m., someone from the Corazon building at 732 Cormorant St. called 911. Police and paramedics attended the scene. Levesque and Bredo were both rushed to Victoria General Hospital with stab wounds, where Levesque, 20,

later died from his injuries. Const. Mike Russell called the scene “chaotic” when officers arrived. Police had difficulties gaining access to the building, due to its security system. “It was frustrating when we first got there, but it didn’t take very long for us to get into the building,” he said. Eventually, a resident leaving the building let officers inside. When they arrived at the suite, both men were bleeding. Levesque was in critical condition; he later died at hospital. Bredo was in serious condition, but was conscious. He was released from hospital later Wednesday night and was transferred directly to police

custody. Levesque recently moved to Victoria from Revelstoke. According to a Facebook post, he came to the capital to pursue music. He was an active songwriter, and sang and played guitar recently at the Baja Surf Grill on Yates Street. He also recently had a poem published in youth-oriented Scratch Magazine called “The Man Without Jewels.” Neither man had a history of run-ins with Victoria police. “We don’t have any indication of motive right now,” Russell said. “Our officers are waiting to interview this male and see where the investigation goes from there.”

Motherhood play brings laughs to Belfry Shelley Lipke News staff

A mother lode of comic adventures in parenting is now playing at the Belfry Theatre. Five Vancouver-based moms are back with a compilation of their funniest skits, dances and songs in Mom’s the Word: Remixed. This hilarious parody of childrearing began in 1993 when the actress moms decided to take the highs and lows of parenting on stage. Since then this play has spread worldwide with actresses in many countries performing it in their own languages. Actress and mom Barbara Pollard called the skit wacky, colourful, fun and something to which moms of any age or demographic can relate. “These are stories about our journeys as mothers,” she said. It began when the moms, all working professionals in theatre, had kids around the same time and couldn’t find any work. At the time there were lots of textbooks on raising children,

but nothing being acted on stage involving raising children, so they set out to change that. “We were grappling in the dark. When we first did the show we gathered together as a group of friends telling stories and tried to plant a framework (for the skit),” said Pollard. Jill Daum remembers the first show. “We were supposed to run for three days and the arts club in Vancouver picked us up and we ran for nine months. The first night the audience stood up, clapped, walked toward the stage and hugged us. Back then we were just talking heads. We were talking about parenting and telling stories and there was very little plot.” Over the years they evolved to get a director, a set and costumes. “It’s more polished now,” said Daum. Dressed in outrageous superhero costumes decorated with scouring pads, cheese graters, eggbeaters and vegetable strainers, they sing to the Pussycat Dolls song “Don’t Cha.” “The costumes are alienators

furthest extreme of mortification,” explained Daum. The show stars Daum, Pollard, Beverley Elliott, Alison Kelly, and Deborah Williams. Scenes take the audience through birth, raising children, co-parenting conflicts, and the dreaded teenage years. “It shows the good, bad, and the ugly. That is the secret of the success,” said Kelly. “If you wrote only funny stories, it wouldn’t have the truth. We let out secrets and it’s a show for everybody who has had a mom. After 18 years, I still adore the lines.” “It is being acted by women worldwide and people can’t believe it’s Canadian. People can’t believe how it speaks to the universality of parenting,” she said. Mom’s the Word: Remixed runs until Aug. 21 with tickets ranging from $23 to $38 available by phone at 250-385-6815 or at www.belfry. bc.ca/tickets. It shows nightly Tuesday to Saturday at 8 p.m. with a 4 p.m. matinee on Saturday and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. The Belfry is at 1291 Gladstone Ave. editor@vicnews.com

Lifetime of fitness a fountain of youth Charla Huber News staff

Two West Shore retirees are being mistaken for women a lot younger than themselves. Now both in their mid-50s, Jill Denise and Debbie Hanlan, keep their bodies strong and youthful by staying active and pumping iron. Recently during a grueling workout, a man about 45 years old turned to Denise and said, “wait until you are as old as me. You’re body won’t work the same.” Denise, 55, laughed to herself but never corrected the man on her age. For her entire life, she has stayed fit and enjoyed developing a healthy sheen of sweat on her skin. In her mid-20s she found passion on a soccer field. Now she is active in cross-fit, yoga, cycling, hiking and training on stairs. But her active lifestyle comes at a cost. Denise has knee issues that she pushes past everyday. “It’s from soccer. My knees are bone-on-bone. When I was 42 the doctor told me I have the knees of an 80 year old,” Denise said. “If you sit on the couch and do nothing your knees will still be sore, so you might as well use it.” She broke her wrist in December and has been recovering from that as well, but she won’t slow down. “When you break something at this age (if you’re not active) you are going to get arthritis all over the place,” Denise said. “I can’t imagine sitting on a couch.” Hanlan too said people often don’t think she is 56, let alone a

Debbie Hanlan and Jill Denise squat with medicine balls during a CrossFit workout in Langford. Now in their mid-50s, their fitness regime has adjusted, but hasn’t slowed much with age. grandmother. In July, Hanlan cycled from Vancouver to Seattle on the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Her mother, father and sister have all been struck by cancer. In 1992, Hanlan was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma. “It took six months to diagnose and then four months of treatment (chemotherapy and radiation),” Hanlan said. “My children were in their teens then, that was

the worst part.” Prior to her diagnosis, Hanlan had been an avid runner, but the pain in her hip from where the cancer was located was too great, and she had to stop running. Within the year, Hanlan went into remission. Nearly every day Hanlan works out, attending CrossFit classes five days a week, cycling and taking yoga. When Olympic weightlifting, she can dead lift 115

pounds. She also does push-ups off her toes. Hanlan retired this year, but even before she moved into retirement, Hanlan still found herself at the gym five days a week. Both women credit their health to a lifetime of healthy living. For other people who may not be in their prime, Hanlan wants them to know, “It’s never too late to start working out.” Fitness, wellness and rehabilita-

tion programmer Kristy Webster for West Shore Parks and Recreation sees many seniors heading to the gym to help stay healthy. It’s important to work on balance for fall prevention and strength training for bone density. “It’s about setting up foundations to continue independent living,” Webster said. Many seniors have challenges when working out that their younger counterparts don’t. For instance, aging people often cope with arthritis. “You have to find exercise that doesn’t hurt and that can be a challenge,” she said. If someone has arthritis in their hands, Webster said lifting free weights may cause pain but lifting weights with a cable machine, “puts the point of pressure above the hands.” In her job Webster said she sees seniors coming into the gym who are noticing they have lost flexibility or mobility and want to get it back. For people with heart issues or on various medications such as blood thinners, Webster said instead of striving for a specific heart rate the clients are encouraged to work out at a point where they can easily say their name. “You don’t want to be gasping for air, but you don’t want to be able to have a whole conversation either,” Webster said. She also sees seniors who have lead healthy lifestyles for decades. “I notice their energy level, confidence, mobility and obviously their fitness level,” Webster said. “Often they will look 10 to 15 years younger than they are.” reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

UVic golden at Henley The University of Victoria Vikes men’s and women’s summer rowing teams won the prestigious Henley Efficiency Trophy as the top Canadian Club at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in St. Catharines, Ont., over the weekend. The Vikes won nine gold medals. The Efficiency Trophy was implemented in the 1970s to give smaller teams, like UVic’s 38 rowers, a chance to compete against the 100-plus rowers of second-place St. Catherine’s Rowing Club. UVic’s biggest day came on Aug. 4 with five gold medals from the U23 women’s lightweight eight (Leanne Fells, Katie O’Connor, Ingrid Braul, Alex Meiklejohn, Johanna Weber, Anna Braunzier, Emma Sheehan, Stef Miklosovic, Jane Gumley), the senior lightweight women’s double

White Rock’s third baseman Dylan Yeager waits for the call after tagging Victoria Eagle’s Mike Varley at Carnarvon Park during the bantam-AAA provincials.

Eagles win bantam-AAA title in Oak Bay A dramatic two-run home run by Sam Stevenson took the lead back in a see-saw final as the Victoria Eagles won the bantam-AAA provincial baseball championship. Victoria defeated the Vancouver Mounnties 8-5 in Sunday’s final at Carnarvon field, where the provincial tournament played out from Aug. 4-7. Stevenson’s dinger made it 5-3 for Victoria late in the game. The Eagles added three more runs, two from a big single by Mitch Bryan. It was a revenge win for the Eagles who lost to

Stars come out to Westshore Town Centre for neighbours in need Westshore Town Centre rolled out the red carpet for celebrity look-alikes from this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest box office hits to raise funds for the Goldstream Food Bank. The opening of Cineplex Odeon Westshore provided the perfect opportunity for a summer celebration and to welcome a new tenant while also supporting the local food bank. Westshoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hollywood-style red carpet setting provided the ideal backdrop to strike a pose with favourite movie characters. Visits from celebrity impersonators Captain Jack and entourage, a wizard named Harry and friends, Marilyn, and everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite bear and friend were on hand to have their picture taken with the public. Gourmet cupcakes and coffee were served by who else but....the Queen! Entertainment, face painting, Lego displays and more rounded out the festivities. All funds raised through photos and refreshments will go to the Goldstream Food Bank.
