Langford leads growth in province Housing, population data released from 2011 census Edward Hill News staff

Statistics Canada has confirmed what most people can see with their own eyes: Langford has become a much more crowded place in the past decade. StatsCan released a first batch of data from its 2011 census on Wednesday. Langford has far outpaced any other municipality in the Capital Region, and the province, in terms of population and housing growth. In the past five years, Langford’s population grew by about 6,800 people, or 30 per cent. Over the past 10 years it’s grown by more than 10,000 residents. For housing, the city added 3,600 new dwellings since 2006, a 39.5 per cent jump. It has added 5,500 dwellings in the past 10 years. “West Shore urban centres are growing seven times faster than the downtown core,” observed Dan Spinner, CEO of the West Shore Chamber of Commerce. “This latest data confirms what we instinctively knew. This confirms the West Shore is the economic engine for the Greater Victoria area.” Langford, which has marketed itself as “business friendly,” has seen rapid housing growth at large developments such as Westhills, Bear Mountain, and Kettle Creek and along Happy Valley Road, but also dozens of smaller condominium and townhouse projects throughout the city. Conversely, Victoria, which grew at 2.7 per cent, has less available land for residential development, other than infill condo towers. “Victoria is hardly growing, Saanich even less so,” Spinner said. “The only planned substantial growth is on the West Shore.” PLEASE SEE: Metchosin happy, Page A6

Water spits from a heavy crane claw as it moves to position rock on a new reef, not far from Fisgard Lighthouse. CFB Esquimalt is funding the construction of three new reefs to build up marine habitat in Esquimalt harbour.

New life for Esquimalt harbour DND creates reefs for marine habitat Edward Hill News staff

One heaping claw of rock after another, a new set of underwater reefs are slowly taking shape at the mouth of Esquimalt harbour. A working harbour and navy base for well over a century, CFB Esquimalt is undertaking its first marine life enhancement project by building three rock reefs, each about one-third the size of a football field. With innumerable surfaces and nooks among the nine barge-loads of stone, the military wants to encourage sea life

to take hold. But the $1.2 million project isn’t entirely altruistic – the navy is replacing marine habitat before existing habitat is disturbed or destroyed near the jetties. Mike Waters, a marine biologist with Foundation Environmental, a Department of National Defense agency, said there aren’t any specific plans for in-water work at CFB Esquimalt, but the navy wants to go above and beyond federal fisheries regulations. “This project is being done independently of any specific works in the harbour,” Waters said. “It’s about DND being proactive as far as making sure anything that does happen in the harbour in the future, it will already have habitat set aside ... and no net loss of fisheries habitat.” Work is proceeding at a hurried pace

When Craigflower bridge is closed for replacement this summer, the quick 400-metre trip from Craigflower to Gorge road will become a 4.5-kilometre detour. “We’re having a real difficult time with this,” said Jim Hemstock, manager of transportation with Saanich. With Saanich council’s approval of the new bridge on Monday, along with a sixmonth closure of the 78-year-old bridge and adjacent roads, Hemstock is tasked with figuring out how to best get people across the water. Drivers are out of luck — they’ll have to detour. But pedestrians and students travelling to and from Craigflower elementary from the other side of the waterway won’t be expected to take the scenic route. “Whatever we decide has to come out of our ($10.7 million) budget,” Hemstock said. That budget is already tapped out, covering costs for the new three-lane bridge and road redesigns on the Saanich and View Royal sides. There are really only two options now: building a temporary pedestrian walkway — to the tune of $250,000 — or providing buses to move the students back and forth, at a cost of $50,000. On Monday night, Saanich Coun. Paul Gerrard urged Hemstock to choose the walkway option. “The buses are well for the students, but I’m looking for a way to get ordinary pedestrians over, as well,” Gerrard said. “And I’m quite sure the businesses at Admiral’s Walk and the Canadian Tire are not going to be very happy unless there’s some way of getting their patrons across.” A third option, building docks and offering a water taxi, have been mulled, but Hemstock said the environmental impacts of that would be “pretty substantial.” There’s also the potential for having flaggers guide pedestrians across the bridge during construction. But Hemstock estimates there would be at least two months where the old and new bridge would not be usable. Now that both Saanich and View Royal council have approved the bridge concept, engineers are working on a detailed design. “We’re also looking at much more detail at what happens for traffic (during the six-month closure),” Hemstock said.

Running the Sahara West Shore RCMP auxiliary officer takes on Marathon de Sables ultramarathon Edward Hill News staff

When Don Devenney opened his email last February, one message made his heart skip a few beats. He had been awarded a slot in the Marathon des Sables, a famed 250 kilometre run through the Sahara Desert in Morocco, certainly one of the toughest foot races in the world. Devenney was overjoyed, and a little fearful. “I had mixed feelings,” he says smiling. “I said, ‘What have I got myself into now?’” A marathoner and Ironman triathlete, Devenney is no stranger to gruelling endurance events. But running in 40 C-plus heat, through sand dunes and hardscrabble terrain, with a full pack for six days, is a new dimension of suffering. “I’ve run in heat before, but I’ve never run in a desert,” says Devenney, a long-serving West Shore RCMP auxiliary constable. “They tell us the temperature is usually in the high 30s (Celsius) or mid 40s. Last year had days into the 50s.” A handful of Canadians get selected each year through a lottery system for the Marathon des Sables, and most have to wait a few years, as Devenney did. Despite the obvious hardships of running the equivalent of five-and-a-half marathons through the desert, 700 slots sell out each season. Devenney admits he wasn’t in the best of shape when he got his race entry ticket — his last marathon was in 2009 and his last Ironman in 2006. Being the IT manager for the Canadian Sports Centre Pacific left him little time to train and enter races. On the other hand, being an employee of CSCP has given him access to the most

sophisticated athletic training facility in western Canada. The 53-year-old View Royal resident has ready access to a treadmill in heat chamber — housed in a retrofitted camper — the same one used by Canadian triathletes in preparation for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. He’s had a run at 30 C, and the chamber maxes out at about 40 C. “By the end of March I’ll be on full heat acclimation protocol, spending six to 10 days in the chamber doing hard runs,” he says. “The 30 C run wasn’t bad, but it’s new territory for me. I need to ramp up the temperature and be uncomfortable.” In the meantime, he’s keeping up a relentless six-days per week outdoor running schedule, set out by his coach and ultra-marathoner Mike Suminski. After a year of slowly building endurance, these days Devenney can be found pounding out four hour runs through steep rolling hills in Highlands, with a 20 pound pack. “It comes down to training, it’s so important to build up endurance,” Suminski says. “But also fuelling and hydration is critical. You can do all the training you want, but without a strategy for fuelling and hydration you can have a terrible race. “Don is very mentally tough,” he adds. “You have to be really focused, the mental game is a huge part of training, and especially doing these ultras.” Race organizers supply camps and shelter, and water at the start of each leg, but athletes in the MdS have to carry all their food, clothing, medical gear and supplies to last the week. If runners don’t show up with at least 14,000 calories worth of nutrition, and medical certificates proving they are fit, they don’t start. “Food, toilet paper, snake bite medicine. It’s all on your back,” Devenney says. “Being self sufficient is one of the more interesting aspects of the race. I’m working on finding freeze dried food. It’s minimalist, it’s about filling the void. I’m

Devenney is running this year in the Marthaon des Sables desert ultra-marathon. not worried if it tastes good.” He also has to find ways to keep sand out of his shoes — it can tear feet up and quickly end a race. “Keeping blisters down is a real challenge,” Devenney says. “There are a lot of sand dunes.” Devenney won’t know the route for sure until they’re bused out to the start line in the Moroccan desert, but it’s guaranteed to be long and hot. He tries not to dwell on the scope of the race. “I’m doing the training and I feel strong and ready, but

sometimes I’ll get butterflies,” he says. “But the bottom line is you do the training plan, get to the start line, and what happens, happens.” As part of his run, Devenney is raising money for the Canadian Arthritis Society, in honour of his friend Rhonda, who suffers from crippling arthritis. To donate, see aspx. For more on the Marathon des Sables, see

“The 2011 numbers confirm we are not a bedroom community anymore,” Spinner said. Langford Mayor Stew Young isn’t surprised that Langford is B.C.’s fastest growing city, but he admits it’s not clear the rate of growth will continue at the same pace. Langford is working with the business and development community to develop and retain higher paying jobs in the city, he said. That, along with relatively affordable houses, low taxes and better infrastructure. “We’ve got some of the best recreation in the region now. We’ve made a big effort to make this a community where people want to live. It’s a matter of keeping things affordable,” Young said. “That translates into jobs, good jobs Langford needs.” The West Shore on the whole grew at a much greater rate than other CRD municipalities, such as Victoria and Saanich, but those two municipalities combined still remain home to more than 55 per cent of the region’s residents.

A federal grant ends, but Colwood plugs the gap Edward Hill News staff

Solar Colwood will rescue homeowner grants for solar hot water systems after the federal government ended its ecoEnergy program two months earlier than expected. The federal ecoEnergy home retrofit program offered $1,250 rebates for home solar hot water systems and $500 for ductless heat pumps. The program website noted it has reached its goal of registering 250,000 homes and has ended. EcoEnergy had advertised grants would be available until March 31. “It was a pretty abrupt ending. There was no notice,� said J Scott, Solar Colwood co-ordinator. “Many people thought they had two more months and all of a sudden it was gone.� Before the ecoEnergy grant was cancelled, Colwood homeowners could get a $3,000 from Solar Colwood, $500 from the

provincial LiveSmart BC program and $1,250 from the feds for a solar hot water system, a $4,750 savings on what are typically $8,500 to buy and install. Dipping from a different pot of federal money, Scott said Solar Colwood will offer additional $1,250 rebates allocated from its $3.9 million grant from Natural Resources Canada, until March 31. The program won’t cover rebates for ductless heat pumps. “Getting $4,750 off makes it easier to make the decision (to buy solar hot water). Price point is definitely a deciding factor for people,� Scott said. “Losing $1,250 would make it harder for people to get solar hot water. I’m thrilled Colwood is going to fill the gap.� Solar Colwood has $3.9 million to subsidize 880 solar hot water units and 120 ductless heat pumps in Colwood homes, among other energy saving initiatives. The program is also funding a series of electric car

Fuel spill drunk driving case inches forward Charla Huber News staff

James Allan Charles Smith, the Nanaimo truck driver involved in the Goldstream River fuel spill on the Malahat Drive last year, is one step closer to facing a trial. Lawyers held a pretrial conference at Western Communities Courthouse on Wednesday. In a closed courtroom, defense lawyer Dale Marshall and Crown met with a judge to discuss Smith’s charges of impaired driving, driving with a blood alcohol level above 0.08 and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

Smith, 34 at the time of the crash, was not present in court. Witnesses of the crash on the Malahat also attended the pretrial conference. On April 16, 2011, at 6 p.m., a Columbia Fuels b-train fuel tanker lost control and plowed into a rock face just outside of Goldstream Provincial Park. The crash dumped 42,000 litres of gasoline and 700 litres of diesel into the river. Another pretrial conference has been set for March 8 and the Western Communities Courthouse. Marshall said at that time a date may be set for a trial.

charging stations in Colwood. To date, the program has helped install 20 hot water and 46 ductless heat pump systems in city homes. Colwood Coun. Judith Cullington, the driving force behind Solar Colwood, said the program budget has enough flexibility to fund extra grants. Using money now shouldn’t reduce the number of rebate grants Colwood can offer over the lifetime of the three year program, she said. Rebates can vary with the size of the solar system. “It’s really just internal shuffling of where the incentives go to,� Cullington said. “It’s good news for people who live in Colwood.� The ecoEnergy home retrofit program fell under the $1.5 billion ecoEnergy Renewable Initiative. Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced the program in January 2007 at Pearson College in Metchosin. For more on Solar Colwood, see

Here’s what you can expect: • Typically, meter installation will take place Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m.–8:00 p.m. PST. • Meter installers will have BC Hydro and Corix logos on their trucks and uniforms, and photo identification badges. • You don’t need to be home, as long as we have safe and clear access to your meter—please remove any physical modifications that prevent a meter exchange. • In most cases, the exchange will take less than 10 minutes. • You will experience a brief power interruption, in most cases it will last 60 seconds. For more information about the smart meter installation process, visit

For 50 years, BC Hydro has been providing clean, reliable electricity to you. Today we are planning for the next 50 years by investing in new projects, upgrading existing facilities and working with you to conserve energy through Power Smart.

Bridge fix another hit to business


lot of thought went into how the longterm closure of Craigflower Bridge will affect everything from school kids to salmon. But, municipal planners were less tender with how they treated small local businesses, one segment especially sensitive to any upheaval. Small business owners in the Admiral’s Walk area have been left out of most discussions around replacing the bridge. Motorists will find the quickest way to get where they need to go, and formerly less popular roads will attract traffic before becoming a new tributary. Planners take this into consideration when contemplating changes to traffic patterns. Whether the disruption is caused by road maintenance or more significant upgrades, such as a new bridge, care is taken to try and ease the pain for the public. In the case of the Craigflower bridge, the municipalities it connects — Saanich and View Royal — are primarily looking for options to allow pedestrians and cyclists to still be able to cross that stretch of the Gorge waterway. Motorists, who arguably account for the majority of people shopping at Admirals Walk, will have to journey an extra four kilometres to get across. We hope people will make a choice to stay loyal to those affected businesses that have earned their trust. But that’s a lot to ask. A better solution would have been for municipal planners to give the area’s economic ecosystem the same consideration afforded the natural habitat of the waters that flow under the bridge. The same businesses suffered during the long construction process on Island Highway near Six Mile, and they will struggle again. More information much earlier in the process would have gone a long way to helping business owners prepare for the tough times they’re sure to face.

UVic and UBC are also immune, because of their varsity status. It means James Bay can throw national scrum half Sean White and fly half Connor Braid into the lineup at any time. And when national sevens captain Phil Mack finishes his time at UVic, he too will be free to play for James Bay. The same goes for the Castaway-Wanderers with Michael Fuailefau and Beau Parker. The rule does slow graduating Vikes with national team status from jumping ship to Island clubs, however. National prop Andrew Tiedeman and his Vikes front row mate Toby Peyton came to the Castaway-Wanderers from UVic this year. Tiedeman is CW’s new captain, while Peyton hasn’t played in the premier league yet this year. One would expect Velox to get a boost sooner than later, and hopefully it means their return to the Premier League next year. But that’s still only a few players. Perhaps the answer lies in a return of the Pacific Pride under-23 program, which was also part of the premier league. Whatever the answer, there’s got to be some way to see more of Canada’s rugby team in Victoria besides at practice, or on the Premier League sidelines. —Travis Paterson is sports reporter for Black Press Greater Victoria.

LETTERS Deer problem common sense Re: Nothing humane about deer cull, Letters, Feb. 3; Deer cull humane thing to do in urban area, Letters, Jan. 27, 2012. I have to agree with Dale Lovell. Catherine Culley’s letter is nothing, but common sense. Let’s throw common sense to the wind folks. Who is with me? Would it not be amazing to see cougars roaming free in Victoria. No shooting or relocation in our fair town. They were here first after all, just like the deer. Yes, some cats and dogs will go missing. Possibly a few children. Maybe even a few adults. But don’t worry, we will adapt. And we can hold up our

collective heads and say that we are a humane community living as one with nature. OK, who I am trying to kid. Mark me as a yes for “common sense” culling of the deer herd. I would rather my kids walk safe in this town than put them at risk to both cougars and deer. Todd Stewart View Royal

LETTERS Continued from Page A9

We thank Metchosin Mayor John Ranns for asking the tough questions when faced with the large budget increase requested by the centre’s management and wonder why our other local politicians have not been doing that too. We agree that recreation is important to the community, but why does recreation here on the West Shore have to be all about high-maintenance facilities like arenas, golf courses and swimming complexes. Nowadays, even simple things such as playing fields seem to require huge amounts of money to build and maintain with their artificial surfaces and enormous lights for night time use. We have never attended the violent and

bloody sporting events held at the Bear Mountain Arena, which in our opinion includes pro hockey and lacrosse. Our suggestion for the arena, lose the name and lose the bad karma. We don’t want to see our local rec centre bankrupted like its namesake. Ron Rayner and Eleanor McKinnon Langford

device that produces not one watt more of power? I also submit that the smart meter is just another gimmick by B.C. Hydro to extract more money from over and above their other planned increases to improve their bottom line to justify more bonuses for their executives. We need more ways to create power not gimmicks. I also feel bonuses have no place in this public company that provides an essential service. This cannot become another cash cow for the one per cent to hold us hostage over. I hope the smart meter goes the same way as the as the HST and people rise up in numbers and refuse this meter which is our right, as this is still a public utility. John Wheatcroft Highlands

The legend of cranes a statue dedicated to her at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial in Japan. The performance, by Japanese theatre company Bunkaza, weaves together these stories looking at the implications of nuclear war. The play is performed in Japanese with English surtitles and is suitable for children aged 12 and up. One Thousand Cranes is part of Intrepid Theatre’s 2012 season of international touring theatre, which includes shows from Quebec, Belgium and Japan.

One Thousand Cranes, a beautifully crafted show from Tokyo, puts a human face to nuclear fallout. A young Japanese girl is diagnosed with leukemia after Hiroshima. Determined to live, she folds origami cranes, which are a symbol of hope. Across the Pacific in Canada, a young boy believes that there’s nothing he can do to stop an inevitable nuclear war. The show is based on the true story of Sasaki Sadako, a young girl who discovered that she had radiationinduced leukemia nine years after the bombing of Hiroshima. According to ancient Japanese legend, anyone who folds 1,000 origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Sadako died in 1955 and there is now

WLA Shamrocks draft Jr. Rocks’ Karsen Leung in first round Travis Paterson News staff

Speed was the deciding factor as the Victoria Shamrocks picked homegrown talent Karsen Leung from the junior Shamrocks in the first round of the Western Lacrosse Association draft on Monday. Leung went sixth overall, one of three players from Victoria who went in the first round. Casey Jackson (Coquitlam Adanacs) was third overall and Cody Bremner (Nanaimo Timbermen) went seventh. Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch said he and his staff debated who to take at sixth — Leung or Bremner. Both are talented field lacrosse players in the NCAA, who came out of Claremont secondary but played on different junior teams. Leung is an all-star transition player with a ton of speed and offensive capability. Bremner is a gritty goal-scorer with a great shot, unafraid to take a knock in the dirty areas. “The game today is all about speed and athleticism, and Leung brings that in spades,” Welch said. “We would’ve liked Casey too. Obviously he wasn’t available to us. Our choice was Leung or Bremner, to take nothing away from Bremner. He’s a bright young player, with a gritty low post game. “Leung’s been a call-up to the (senior) Shamrocks the last couple of years, and has been identified for a while as a blue chip prospect.” Going first overall was another transition player, Travis Cornwall, selected by the senior Coquitlam Adanacs from the

Junior Shamrocks player Luke Acton was selected to the Nanaimo Timbermen in the sixth round of the WLA entry draft, held in Burnaby on Monday (Feb. 6). junior Adanacs. Picking second and third, the Burnaby Lakers doubled up on Jacksons, taking Jackson Decker from the Jr. Lakers and one-time Jr. Shamrock Casey Jackson from Coquitlam, respectively. The Shamrocks were without a pick in the second round but chose twice in the third, taking Michael Krgovich from the Jr. Adanacs and Mitch McLaren from the Saanich Jr. B Tigers. “We couldn’t let Krgovich fall any further in the draft with that type of pedigree,” Welch said. “We know there’s a chance Krgovich will take a year or two off of lacrosse. But he was the captain of Minto Cup finalist Adanacs in 2011, a major responsibility under (Ads) coach Curt Malawsky, and we like that.” McLaren was once in the pipeline for a junior-A career but fell out of favour due to philosophical differences with his junior-A team, Welch said. Leung and McLaren are differ-

ent players who will both have a chance to step into the transition role as rookie stud Andrew Suitor has committed to playing in his native Ontario after one year in Victoria. “We think (McLaren’s) one of the top defensive transition guys in the draft, a guy that can bring some of the things we lose with Suitor. He’s not a pugilistic player but is a battler and feisty player.” The Shamrocks picked up a pair of Claremont graduates in the fourth round who went elsewhere for junior-A, Asahel Beaudet from Nanaimo and Steve Higgs from the Delta Islanders. Late in the draft, Victoria products Jake Ryan and Liam Kelly were taken. The Rocks’ last pick was Jr. Shamrocks defender of the year in 2011, Austin Powell, who hails from San Diego and plays NCAA lacrosse with Leung for Bellarmine University in Kentucky. Nanaimo selected Victoria’s Tyler Matheson in the second round. The Jr. Shamrocks grad gets a chance to reunite with Bremner. The two were once junior-A hockey teammates with the Victoria Grizzlies.

Habitat project a first for West Coast navy Continued from Page A1

“Rock is ideal for habitat. It’s stable, long lasting, is minimally affected by weather,” he said. The reef sizes and locations were chosen to maintain safe ship navigation, and that the seafloor in the reef areas is muddy and sandy, while being close to existing kelp beds. Foundation Environmental estimates the rocky mounds will create 11,000 square metres of new habitat. “We wanted areas that could be maintained in perpetuity,

areas optimal for rocky reef habitat. We placed them in areas that appear less productive,” Waters said. “Creating marine habitat it will provide foraging areas for fish, areas to escape predation, attachment for kelp. It will hopefully enhance the ecology of Esquimalt harbour.” If work around existing navy jetties damages more marine habitat than created from the new reefs, Waters said DND will need to fund more reefs. This is the first time, at least on the West Coast, the navy has cre-

ated rocky reefs specifically for marine habitat. “The navy obviously has a strong presence in the marine environment,” said base spokesperson Lieut. Michael McWhinney. “Part of our leadership priorities is to minimize the impact on the environment and improve on conditions.” Major projects at CFB Esquimalt with the potential to impact marine habitat include the continued modernization of the Fleet Maintenance Facility, a $607-million project to replace dozens of obsolete buildings.
