Craigflower bridge work expected to start in June View Royal, Saanich consider final design

The first aid cross is faded but legible on the back of the 1949 Buick Flxible, Langford’s first ambulance. Langford volunteer firefighter Brad Cambrey hauled the car home last summer from Clearwater

Sam Van Schie News staff

barely legible “Langford� stenciled on the doors gave it away. “I spent 10 years trying to get old vehicles back and I finally found one,� he said. “There was light at the end of the tunnel.� After more than a year of negotiation and a promise to restore the car, in August Cambrey towed it home from the Interior. He was surprised how well it held up to decades of use, first as hearse, then graduating to an ambulance in 1957 in Langford, before being sold around 1966.

The new look for Craigflower bridge is being considered by View Royal and Saanich councils this week. The final proposed design is a combination of two bridge styles presented at an open house in View Royal last month. It incorporates the arched steel base and aligns the roadways at a slight curve to allow wider bike lanes and more amenity space on the downriver side of the bridge surface. “The level of feedback we received has been excellent,� said Saanich transportation manager Jim Hemstock, noting that 300 people attended the open last month and many more have emailed their thoughts on the design. “This is a highly visible bridge in a predominant location. People want it to look good.� If both councils approve the design, the busy bridge will carry three lanes of traffic, estimated at about 18,000 vehicles per day. Concrete barriers will separate two-metre wide cycling lanes and concrete sidewalks on each side of the street. The bridge will have an additional platform at the centre of the downstream side, which could be used for herring fishing or as a viewing platform with seating. “I’d like to see someone selling hot dogs there,� Hemstock remarked.

Driving home history Firefighter tracks down Langford’s first ambulance Edward Hill News staff

Capt. Brad Cambrey can see past the rust and mouldy upholstery — the 1949 Buick Flxible is a valuable piece of Langford’s history. A tough whale of a car, what was Langford’s first ambulance has spent the past decade living in a field in Clearwater, B.C. Now it sits in a storage shed on

city property, waiting for restoration. Cambrey, a 26-year Langford volunteer firefighter who rescued the vintage vehicle last summer, plans to rebuild it from the chassis up. “It’s actually in remarkable condition. The frame is solid, the motor is intact, the tranny is intact,� he says. “It just looks ugly.� As a hobby, Cambrey has spent years trying to track down Langford’s historic fire vehicles, which were often sold after their service life came to an end. He found one old Langford engine on Galiano Island, which that fire department plans

to restore. One was recently destroyed in a fire in northern B.C. Another old engine sits upIsland under a tarp at an undisclosed fire department, rusting in place. “That was one of our first trucks. We still have the receipt,� Cambrey said. “But they don’t want to sell it back. We’ve had no luck.� Many of the tips come from fire truck sales staff travelling the province, many who have a keen eye for antique engines. But about two years ago Cambrey zeroed in on the city’s first ambulance on a property in Clearwater, thanks to a Langford auto mechanic. Faded and

Metchosin weighs in on legalizing pot Charla Huber News staff

In a symbolic gesture meant to send a message to the federal government, all but one of Metchosin councillors said they support decriminalizing marijuana. Coun. Larry Tremblay is worried about council’s image. “I am one of the few who have never tried it,” Tremblay said at a committee meeting last week. “I’ll probably go down as the Neanderthal in Metchosin who doesn’t support it, but I don’t want to go down as the pothead council of Metchosin.” “In my view this is long overdue,” countered Coun. Bob Gramigna. “I’ve tried it, not here in Metchosin, and I’ve lived here for 15 years — but let’s get real folks.” Coun. Moralea Milne, chair of the finance and environment committee, had the issue added to the committee’s agenda. Milne argued the illegality of marijuana is responsible for criminal behaviour, such as mouldy, unsafe grow-op houses and the theft of electricity. “I think it should be released and taxed like alcohol,” Milne said. “We need to bring some sanity to our lawmaking. The problem with marijuana is a failed policy.” While Milne admits to trying marijuana in her younger days, says she hasn’t touched it in 40 years. “It’s not a personal issue for me, it’s a social issue,” she said. Milne became inspired to bring the issue to Metchosin council after attending the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in September. Typically, UBCM members vote each year on a resolution on giving police more power to fight grow-ops, and each year it is defeated. At the meeting, Milne spoke about the failed war on marijuana. “I know it’s in a federal jurisdiction but it needs politicians to change their minds,” Milne said. “It was astounding ... she got the largest ovation,” noted Coun. Jo Mitchell. Metchosin’s motion came on the heels of the Health Officers Council of B.C. endorsing a call to decriminalize and tax marijuana due to the public health risk from criminal activity. “It’s not just a bunch of pot-smoking hippies saying this,” Milne said. The finance committee passed a motion to bring the issue to council. If council endorses the legalization motion, it will be passed on to the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities. “It’s a tough question, but obviously what we’ve been doing hasn’t worked,” said Mayor John Ranns. “I fear organized crime more than just about anything.” reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

Solar Colwood helps First Nation youth Sam Van Schie News staff

On the roof of a Colwood home, Edward Hale tightens the bolts on a newly installed solar panel and pulls off the protective covering. “Let’s get off this roof,” he calls out to two men helping with the job. And with that, the 19th solar hot water system installed through Solar Colwood is up and running. The homeowner, Colwood Coun. Judith Cullington who spearheaded the federally funded green energy program, watched the installation from her deck. “This is part of my retirement plan. I’m buying hot water for the future,” said Cullington, who expects savings on her energy bill will pay for the cost of the system, while increasing her home’s resale value. But there’s more for Cullington to celebrate than her own energy savings. During the municipal election, Solar Colwood was a political hot potato that a group of unsuccessful candidates vowed to shut down. But a tough month defending the program paid off, as it’s future now appears secure. “There was a lot of misinformation out there,” she lamented. “I’m glad to have it behind me.” At the heart of the controversy was the amount the program costs tax payers. Initially a $3.9 million federal grant was expected to cover

Sam Van Schie/News staff

Edward Hale removes the protective covering from a solar panel installed as part of Solar Colwood. A member of the T'Sou-ke First Nation, he is one of 11 local aboriginal people who received free training and certification to install the panels. the full cost of Solar Colwood. During the program’s launch event Cullington said residents would pay nothing, a claim she has since revised to “almost nothing.” Colwood will pay $31,400 over four years, about $5 per household, for the program. Opponents of the project argue it eats up municipal resources, such as staff time and office space at city hall. Adding those costs into the price of the program makes it look like more of a financial burden, though those services are considered to be “in-kind” contributions and don’t add any costs to the City budget.

“The bottom line is Solar Colwood is a robust program and we’re continuing to move forward with it,” Cullington said. “There are so many that can benefit from this program. It’s something to be proud of.” Coming down from Cullington’s roof, Hale is a prime example of somebody who’s benefited from Solar Colwood. A member of the T’Sou-ke First Nation, he is among 11 local aboriginal people who received training to be become a certified installer through the Canadian Solar Industries Association, with the cost paid for by Solar Colwood.

Hale has been hired on full time by Pacific Solar Smart Homes, one of Solar Colwood’s approved installers, which now needs more staff to keep up with demand. Pacific Solar owner James Smyth said his work load has increased exponentially since Solar Colwood launched. “We used to do two installs per month, now we’re doing two per week,” he said. “This industry is really incentive driven, the systems aren’t getting any cheaper ... We need programs like this to encourage people to buy the technology.” For more information see www.solarcolwood.ca.

Cold hikers rescued from Gowlland Tod park Edward Hill News staff

Three young men and a dog spent a cold night on a rocky cliff after getting lost in Gowlland Tod Provincial park on Sunday. Three men — two from Highlands, aged 20 and 28, and a 21-year-old from Colwood — started hiking north from the Caleb Pike trailhead in the late afternoon, and quickly became disoriented as darkness set in. Realizing they were lost, one of the men called his mother on a cellphone,

who called emergency services. The men then stayed put on a cliff west of Jocelyn Peak, well off the trail and about four kilometres from their car. “It got dark quick,” said Highlands fire Chief Guy Brisebois. “They tried to turn back, got disoriented and totally went off the path.” Highlands firefighters and West Shore RCMP were called at 8 p.m., and Metchosin search and rescue a few hours later to search the snowy, rocky trails in Gowlland Tod. In cellphone contact with police, the men could see water, prompting auxil-

iary Coast Guard unit from Brentwood Bay to lead the men toward their boat by shooting flares into the sky. The crew helped guide them down the cliff to the beach, and had them in the boat by about 1 a.m. Only one of the trio had clothing appropriate for the freezing weather, Brisebois said, while the others had on windbreakers. The men were cold, but none had hypothermia. “They definitely weren’t dressed for the weather,” he said. “I think they were pretty cold by the time they got in the boat.”

View Royal saves on fire truck after buying U.S. cash Sam Van Schie News staff

View Royal has ordered a new fire engine to replace one of its aging trucks. The $550,000 apparatus will take nearly a year to build in an Abbotsford factory and will come into operation by the end of 2012.

A strong Canadian dollar worked to the Town’s advantage for the purchase, which is paid for in U.S. dollars. Anticipating the expenditure, financial staff bought $600,000 USD when the Canadian dollar was above parity early last year. At the current exchange rate, buying that amount of currency would have cost $32,000 more.

The Town also budgeted $100,000 for loose firefighting equipment for the truck, which will be paid for separately. The purchases will be paid for in the 2012 budget year, with $112,000 from the fire department equipment reserve fund, $100,000 from casino revenue and the remainder will come from a short-term loan to be paid back over five years.

“It was a prudent move by the Town’s financial department,” said fire Chief Paul Hurst of the cost saving. “We’re getting good value on this purchase.” The contract to build the track was awarded to Safetek Fire Apparatus, which was the lowest of two Mainland firms that bid on the job. The new vehicle will replace a 25-year-old engine.

At that time, fire and ambulance crews were one and the same, and the vehicle served largely rural communities between Saanich and East Sooke. “The doors are on it, all the glass is intact, it’s drive train is intact. You can make out ‘Langford’ on both the doors,” Cambrey said. With a muscular straight-eight motor, power windows and an automatic transmission, he called it a car ahead of its time, and a valuable nugget of Langford’s history. “It will be good for parades and special events, but more importantly for me and others, it’s a piece of history coming home,” he said. Cambrey plans to form a new historical society to manage the restoration process and to fundraise. Volunteer firefighters have a wide range of skill sets, he said, and should be able to muster the know-how to restore the Buick back to mint condition. “There’s a lot of work to do, but between (firefighters) and the community, I think we can pull this off,” he said. “It’s not meant to be a speedy project, but it’s a doable one.” “It’s a good thing for the guys to work together on a project that has meaning for the department. It’s teamwork outside of the firefighter training stuff.” If anyone has information on this vehicle or any other historic Langford emergency vehicle can email Cambrey at bcambrey@cityoflangford.ca. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

BC Hydro uniforms stolen prior to rash of wire thefts Kyle Slavin News staff

A number of BC Hydro employee uniforms were recently stolen from work vehicles, which is how, police say, thieves have been able to successfully steal sizeable amounts of underground copper wire undetected. “Hydro’s had some of their jackets and vests go missing from trucks, of late. It might explain why these thefts aren’t being reported,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. Three-thousand pounds of copper wire, 300 metres in length, was stolen from the 4000-block of Borden St. recently. It was reported to police on Wednesday afternoon. “We really want people out there to keep a watchful eye on their neighbourhood. If you see crews working at unusual hours and it’s not in relation to an obvious power outage, call

police,” Jantzen said. Hydro crews also reported that underground wiring was cut at McKenzie Avenue and Century Road. “It does seem that these things happen in waves. And this is likely one sophisticated group going around doing this in various communities,” Jantzen said. According to BC Hydro, five separate thefts of underground wire have been reported in Greater Victoria last week — two in Langford, two in Esquimalt and one in Saanich. “We’re approaching $100,000 worth of wires in lost copper (this month in Greater Victoria),” said Bob Harriman, chief security officer for BC Hydro. He says that cost is inclusive of the original stolen wire and the replacement costs. On Jan. 5, it was reported that 5,000 pounds — or 770 metres — of copper wiring was stolen from below Langford Parkway.

West Shore RCMP said that theft likely took three days to complete. It was described, by BC Hydro, as one of the largest copper thefts ever on Vancouver Island. Harriman says a number of uniforms and safety equipment were stolen from a construction trailer in Langford last July. “If the public saw a BC Hydro crew, they should be able to recognize if it’s a modified crew or not. There would be a clearly marked BC Hydro truck, a crew with uniforms, lights, barricades and safety cones,” he said, presuming that whomever is stealing their wire doesn’t have all the necessary equipment to properly portray a legitimate BC Hydro crew. “It is a BC Hydro top priority to support the police forces to identify these criminals. It is an organized crew and a very specialized crew committing this crime,” Harriman said. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Trial dates to be fixed for school arson Charla Huber News staff

Trial dates will likely be set soon for the two teens accused of arson in last year’s fire Savory elementary school. Jordan Deluca, 19, from Langford, is charged with arson in connection with the fire in the administration wing at Savory

on Sept. 11, 2011, which caused about $50,000 worth of damage. His next court appearance is set for Feb. 2, at 9 a.m. at Western Communities Courthouse. Deluca’s defense lawyer Paul Pearson was in court last Thursday and told the judge he needed a few weeks to look over witness statements and other materials he received

from the Crown. “We’ll probably set a date for the trial now that we have the materials,” Pearson said. A 16-year-old Langford male, who can’t be named, has also been charged with arson linked to the fire at Savory. His next appearance is Jan. 19 at 2 p.m. to fix a date for trial. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Capital Regional District Notice to Customers of Capital Regional District (CRD) Integrated Water Services in the West Shore Comunities and Sooke The 2012 retail water rate for customers in the West Shore Communities, Sooke and serviced parts of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area has been set at $1.5922 per cubic metre, an increase of $0.0513 per cubic metre, effective January 1, 2012. This will result in an additional $2.57 per bi-monthly billing period for the average household. The rate increase reflects the increase in the wholesale cost of water, ongoing investment to replace aging infrastructure and general increases in costs of energy, labour and materials. Questions regarding the water rate change may be directed to CRD Integrated Water Services at 250.474.9600.

Pearson student lands major scholarship Charla Huber News staff

Applying for university can be a stressful time in a young person’s life, but the pressure is off for Pearson college student Chloe Houle-Johnson. Houle-Johnson was recently awarded a Blyth Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Scholarship, worth about $150,000. “When you apply you picture (being selected),” Houle-Johnson said. “I would wake up with a smile on my face and say to myself ‘Chloe, come on what are the chances?’ I did imagine it, but I didn’t think I’d get it.” Earning the scholarship was based on more than just grades. “You have to be focused,” said Houle-Johnson explaining she had to write an essay and attend an interview. “I

Floaters

Little black spots, bugs and spider webs, … Optometrists hear these descriptions of floaters on a daily basis. What are floaters? The majority of the eyeball is filled with a jellylike substance known as vitreous. The vitreous is surrounded by the retina, the thin layer of the eye which contains the light receptor cells. The retina is like the film of a camera and is essential for sight. The vitreous is attached to the retina at a number of points within the eye. As we age the vitreous tends to condense, shrink and become less transparent. Little globs of dense gel floating around cast small shadows on the back of the eye. Those shadows are what we perceive as floaters. Over time all of us will have some of these floaters. However, not all floaters are this innocent. As the vitreous shrinks it tugs at the retina. This tugging can occasionally tear the retina and subsequently cause a retinal detachment. When a detachment occurs, vision can only be saved by prompt medical intervention to repair and reattach the retina. If you experience a sudden onset of new floaters, flashes of light, a shadow or curtain in your vision, or a sudden decrease in your vision, seek advice immediately. Don’t wait a few days to see if the symptoms decrease. If the shadow or curtain occurs on a weekend, go to Emergency. Retinal detachment is painless but serious. Your optometrist can help distinguish between normal vitreous changes and situations which require immediate referral to a medical specialist. Routine eye examinations are a great way to maintain good eye health.

TOWN OF VIEW ROYAL 45 View Royal Ave, Town Hall APPOINTMENTS TO VIEW ROYAL BOARD OF VARIANCE The Town of View Royal is now accepting applications from interested residents wishing to serve on the View Royal Board of Variance. The Municipal Council will be appointing three members with three-year terms to begin on March 1, 2012. The Board of Variance is an autonomous body with the power to vary regulations in situations where compliance with respect to the siting, dimension or size of a building or structure would cause a person undue hardship. The Board of Variance may not vary the density or use of land. In addition, the Board may grant minor variances, with limitations, to the provisions of the Tree Protection Bylaw and to requirements under Sections 911(5) and 938(1)(c) of the Local Government Act. The three member volunteer Board meets as required (typically monthly). In addition to this time commitment, members undertake site inspections prior to the meeting. All meetings are open to the public and involve the weighing of information and evidence to determine if variances are to be approved or declined. For more information about the Board of Variance, please contact Lindsay Chase, Director of Development Services, at 250-479-6800 or via email to info@viewroyal.ca. HOW TO APPLY: View Royal residents interested in being considered for the Board of Variance must submit a one page covering letter with resume to the Clerk’s Office by 4:30 p.m., Friday, February 3, 2012. Our address is: Town of View Royal, 45 View Royal Avenue, Victoria, BC, V9B 1A6, fax 250-727-9551 or email to info@viewroyal.ca. Residents submitting applications are requested to include the following information in their application: name, address, postal code, home and/or business telephone number, e-mail address, occupation, history of community involvement, other relevant history, technical or special expertise, and reasons for seeking appointment. Short listed applicants will be requested to provide references prior to interviews.

Lampposts will run along the bridge to illuminate the vehicle lanes, and bike lanes will be brightened by lights embedded in the concrete barrier. The design doesn’t incorporate wood from the current bridge, which had been suggested for use on the sidewalk. Hemstock said the public wasn’t big on the idea because a wood surface would be bumpy for people in wheelchairs or pushing strollers. It’s also more expensive to maintain. “We’re still going to keep the beams (from the current bridge) to incorporate into something — maybe a bench or the railing,” he said. A second public open house will be scheduled next month to work out those finer design details and to brainstorm ways to reduce the impact of construction. Hemstock said nearly everyone he’s spoken to agrees the bridge should be shut down completely for six months during construction, rather than spending about $2 million to keep a single lane open and causing the project to last 18 months. The bridge could be open in as little as three months if construction crews work around the clock. While the bridge is closed, traffic will have to detour to Tillicum or Helmcken roads to cross the Gorge Waterway. For pedestrians, and school children in particular, there’s talk of providing a water taxi during construction. The design concept and construction schedule was considered by View Royal council yesterday (Jan. 17, after this paper went to press) and will go to Saanich council Jan. 23. Work is expected to commence in June. Replacing the nearly 80-year-old Craigflower bridge with the proposed span is estimated to cost $10.8 million, of which $10 million will be paid through gas tax funds allocated by the Capital Regional District. Sannich will cover 60 per cent of the remaining bill and View Royal, because it’s smaller, will contribute the remaining 40 per cent. Updates on the project are available at www. saanich.ca/services/roads/craigflower.html. Feedback on the designs can be emailed to admiralsroad@saanich.ca. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Langford man arrested for violent sexual assault Erin McCracken News staff

After an 11-month police investigation, a 31-year-old Langford man was arrested Thursday for the violent sexual assault of a Victoria female sex worker. The pair had finished their business in the 3000-block of Douglas St. on Feb. 19, 2011 around 5 p.m. when the accused allegedly attacked the woman without provocation and sexually assaulted her, said Const. Mike Russell, Victoria police spokesperson. The 30-year-old woman eventually fought off her attacker and called 911 as the man was

making his escape. Nearly a year later, the accused was arrested by Victoria police officers without incident at his residence in the 2800-block of Aldwynd Rd. off Goldstream Avenue in Langford. Edward Burman appeared in Victoria court on Friday. He faces charges of assault causing bodily harm, sexual assault causing bodily harm and robbery. Burman was scheduled to appear in Victoria provincial court yesterday (Jan. 17) for a bail hearing. Police said the key to cracking the complex case was linking it to another offence in a national database known as the

Violent Crime Linkage System. In that incident, another Victoria female sex worker was violently robbed of cash in December 2009. The match prompted investigators to run a DNA check. Samples from the two crime scenes were matched through Canada’s National DNA Data Bank for convicted offenders, he said. Cpl. Tara Roberts connected the cases through the Violent Crime Linkage System. “Of course, it’s a good feeling. You want to get predators off the street if you can,” said Roberts, an analyst with the RCMP’s Behaviours Sciences Group in Surrey. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Cougar spied near View Royal elementary Charla Huber News staff

Students at View Royal elementary were ushered into the school during recess on Thursday after a cougar was spotted near a playing field. Principal Rob Parker was one of the supervisors on duty, Jan. 12, during recess. While watching the children, Parker believes he saw a cougar in the woods near the E&N railway. The cougar was not seen on school grounds. “It looked like a real cougar and it was about 100 metres away,” Parker said. “I’ve never seen that before.” The woods and railway track are separated from the school field by a six-foot-high fence. “We immediately instructed the students get

back in the building,” Parker said. “As a precaution we kept the students inside at lunch too.” West Shore RCMP and conservation officers were called and attended, but were unable to determine if a cougar was in the area. Students who walk to school alone called their parents to see if they could get picked up instead. “We just wanted to err on the side of caution,” Parker said. “Students and staff responded immediately and under the situation I am very happy it ended successfully.”

What Parents Need to Know Dear Parents, The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA), given to Grade 4 and 7 students, does not count towards your child’s marks. The results do not actively support your child’s learning. • FSA tests are expensive and waste money at a time when cuts are being made. • FSA tests do not help students learn or teachers teach. • FSA tests take valuable time away from more meaningful learning. • The data does not provide real help to students, parents, or schools. • The results are misused to rank schools and promote privatization. Teachers in the Sooke District recommend that parents write a letter to your school principal requesting that your child be exempted from the FSA. To learn more about your child’s progress and the real assessments done in the classroom, talk to her or his teacher.

OUR VIEW

Premiers wield collective clout B

.C. was among a handful of provinces comfortable with federal plans to base health-care transfer payments on gross domestic product starting in 2017-18. No surprise there. The stance ties right in with the B.C. Liberals’ current philosophy on labour contracts and other budgetary strategies. But at this week’s premier’s conference in Victoria — since 2003 the group has been collectively known as the Council of the Federation — Premier Christy Clark expressed concern about the per-capita funding model contained in the plan. She argued rightly that the feds need to factor age trends into their calculation of transfer payments. With seniors making up an increasing portion of B.C.’s population, the cost of health care here has the potential to rise by more than the six per cent annual boost in funding the feds have scheduled for the next five years. And certainly so in the years after that, when the guaranteed part of the yearly increase drops to three per cent. Having already chosen to avoid negotiating with the provinces on its health-care funding plan past 2014, when the current intergovernmental agreement expires, the Harper government will have to be given a good argument why it should change course. That will take sending a unified message to federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. The split in opinions between provinces on the Conservatives’ health funding plan showed cracks in the Council of the Federation. Clearly some jurisdictions are in a tougher financial position than others and need more help paying for health-care delivery. Clark’s bringing up the age factor in health-care transfer payments offers a good opportunity for the premiers to speak with a unified voice. It’s a perfect chance for the provinces to exercise the clout envisioned when the Council was formed and provide taxpayers with a level of federal oversight that holds more sway than our now-toothless Senate.

is naturally watching the Enbridge battle closely. A Kinder Morgan representative provided the following information about tanker traffic from their Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. In 2011 there were 32 tankers loaded at Westridge, down from 69 in 2010. Demand varies widely (there were no tankers in 2000) and current traffic is similar to what went out of Burrard Inlet in the 1970s. Contrary to popular belief, there is not yet a major surge to Asia. For every 10 ships that load at Westridge, on average eight sail to California, one to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries, and only one to Asia. Current Port Metro Vancouver rules allow Aframax-class tankers (80,000 to 119,000 dead weight tons) to pass under the Lions Gate and Second Narrows bridges, but they can’t take on a full load. That would require dredging in Second Narrows, which would increase general shipping safety as well as capacity. Kinder Morgan has not yet formally applied to twin the Trans Mountain line. If it does expand its priceless right of way, the capacity would be greater than the Enbridge proposal. One way or another, that oil will move. The professional environmentalist gong show over Enbridge is still to come. More on that next week. tfletcher@blackpress.ca —Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

LETTERS Return photo radar to the Malahat I heard on the news photo radar is proposed for the Malahat Drive to save lives. When did I hear that before? Why, back before the B.C. Liberals traded its existence for votes a decade or so ago. Times do indeed change. With former premier Gordon Campbell now gone to his unjust rewards, the matter has once again become worthy of pursuit. Anyone know how many lives have been lost to speeding on that often discussed, often lamented, stretch of island highway. How many lives could have been saved had photo radar not been cancelled back then? And now, hope in sight, how long will it be debated before re-implementation? Don Wilkes Langford

Pipeline too risky, too costly for B.C. Enbridge and their front men in Ottawa (Stephen Harper and Joe Oliver) must think us coastal “radicals” are dumber than a bag of hammers if they think we will buy off on their Northern Gateway Pipeline. The environmental concerns threatening our fragile river systems and coastline are well documented. I feel B.C. is being treated like a thirdworld country by some colonial superpower. The benefits for B.C. to transport bitumen from Alberta to the markets in Asia are minimal. Enbridge thinks they can hand out trinkets to native bands along the proposed route and provide only 2,000 permanent jobs for the rest of the province (half of which will be in Kitimat). Here in B.C. we will assume all the risk from this project and Alberta gets most of the economic benefits. Alberta needs B.C. as a partner to get their heavy oil to the West Coast. We should share equally in the Asian revenues with our province to the east.

Alberta should provide a “heritage fund” for B.C. to provide rainy day money for oil spills (it will happen) so we can afford to clean up the messes. Remember, Harper is currently initiating legislation in Ottawa to limit Enbridge’s liability on this pipeline so we need a good insurance policy. I hope the Northern Gateway Pipeline never happens, but if it does then let’s run it down through Burnaby where there are three million people who can help clean up the inevitable oil spills. Not in my backyard they say. I say not in B.C.’s backyard. Message to Alberta — if you want to create more jobs, build new refineries and we will gladly provide the hard hats and the bodies to help make it happen. Message to B.C. — this is a cause worth fighting for so tape your ankles and get your game face on because we are going into battle. John Townson Colwood

Public support for pipeline lacking Maybe someone at Enbrige of Calgary missed math class. Enbridge claims a recent Ispos-Reid poll of 1,000 British Columbians counters the perception that the majority in B.C. are against their pipeline from the Alberta oil sands to are West Coast. Yet it says right in the first line of the article that 48 per cent support the Northern Pipeline project but 48 per cent is not a majority. The same poll showed that 55 are either not very aware or not are at all. Here is something else Enbridge should be aware of: 55 per cent is a majority. How can 55 per cent support a pipeline they are not aware of or understand very little about? Also 20 per cent said they don't know whether they support it or refused to say. That leaves only 80 per cent and 31 percent are opposed either strongly or somewhat. I am neither for nor opposed to the

Northern Pipeline but I suspect someone at Enbridge are fudging the numbers in their favour. Andre Mollon Langford

Save Canada’s tax dollars for Canadians Regarding Prince William and Kate Middleton, tax dollars should be put to better use (the list will be too long) than paying for the “royals” little holiday in Canada when the sky is a bit gray in England. Beside, William is not a head of state yet. Aren’t they one of the richest families in the world? If so, why do we have to pay million of dollars for not only them but their entourage, hotels, meals, security etcetera. The “royals” don’t pay for my trip when I go to England, but of course I am not a “royal,” I just pay taxes. Philippe Bures View Royal

No good option but to leave Kyoto Accord To all those who criticize Canada’s decision to cease supporting the Kyoto accord, I say this: What if anything, do they expect our government to do in dealing with the position China, India and the U.S. have taken to not accept the terms of this agreement, and therefore continue to pollute in an unrestricted manner? Why should Canada continue to play the role of example setter if, by doing so, other nations pollute the environment to the max with impunity and without concern? Consider this: By Canada insisting that all nations must act as equal partners in the protection of the environment, real pressure is being applied to all, not just a few. Especially to the nations who were previously unwilling to sign on. Since Canada has opted out of the Kyoto Protocol, China, the second-worst offender, is beginning to make noises about

addressing the problem. So, too, is the U.S. These countries are suddenly willing to talk about this topic since Canada has opted out of the accord. This is proof that Canada’s position has had positive effects on the worst polluters. The Canadian position on this subject is the correct one. I am not in the least ashamed about the decision our government has made in cancelling our commitments regarding the Kyoto Protocol. The actions achieved thus far, due to this decision, will produce positive results in the long run and more expediently, than with that lopsided and unworkable agreement.

Re: Police recommend Malahat patrol, News, Jan. 13, 2012. Focusing traffic safety enforcement on the Malahat Drive appears to have shown the effectiveness of more police on the street, but subsequent discussion sounds like a BandAid approach. Few dangerous drivers live on the Malahat — they come from elsewhere, probably driving dangerously where they live. A comprehensive approach is necessary to change the tone of the street everywhere. That will take much effort initially to overcome the effect of years of poor education and neglect of policing. But will voters develop and support politicians with the decency and guts to curb the jerks who deliberately endanger other people? Voters have instead been electing politicians like those of Esquimalt who spend on cutesy medians that only serve to hide jaywalkers instead of on policing. And bureaucrats become constipated about driving tests when the problem is attitude that can’t be evaluated adequately in a test — notice the number of dangerously driven vehicles with the N label.

I ask everyone fussing about safety on the Malahat if they are working to re-orient current politicians and help develop better ones. Keith Sketchley Saanich

Consultation needed on Craigflower bridge I live in a lovely part of Saanich, close to the Gorge Waterway. And because I care about where I live, I’m involved with my neighbours in the Gorge Tillicum Community Association. Recently we have been in close contact with the engineering department as the work on Admirals Road has progressed, all realizing that it has particular traffic issues, at certain times of the day. So when it was announced in spring 2011 that the Craigflower Bridge is to be replaced, we assumed that community consultation would ensue. In early summer, to much political acclaim, we heard that a substantial grant had been awarded using gas tax funding to replace the aging bridge. It was only in the fall that we realized the successful application for funding the new bridge has been based upon three

vehicle lanes, plus adjoining pedestrian and cycling paths. But nobody asked us. From October to December three public consultations took place, all in View Royal, none in Saanich. All bridge options presented were based on three lanes, and imagine our consternation when we learned that the bridge will expand from its current 8.5 metres to 20 m in width. Next time you cross, imagine a bridge 2.5 times larger. And despite our growing objections, they seem like a fait accompli. In 2011 the University of Victoria brought a proposal to Saanich to build a new large parking garage close to the McKinnon Gym. There was public outcry, so much so that UVic is sent packing, not once, but twice by council, as they have not conducted “meaningful community consultation.” But if UVic has to conduct meaningful community consultation, doesn’t that mean the Saanich engineering department should be expected to do the same? To this community activist, there seems to be a disconnect here, and the principle of consultation lies lost in the mud. Harry Lewis Saanich

This is such a concern because many popular cans of soft drinks contain up to 12 teaspoons of sugar per can. The analysis was based on 17,000 participants who were asked to recall what they ate in the last 24 hours in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Drinking sugary drinks isn’t bad or harmful in moderation, but it is the tip of the iceberg on the road to healthy living. Making a conscience choice to choose healthier drinks a proportion of the time is a great doable lifestyle change you can make.

Christopher Groves has been released on bail pending an appeal of his manslaughter conviction. In 2009, he pushed Ariana Simpson, who fell into the street and died instantly after being struck by a passing bus in downtown Victoria. He was found guilty in the fall and sentenced to one year in prison in December.

On Dec. 23, after Groves spent nine days behind bars, the Court of Appeal granted his application for release pending the appeal. He’s been released on recognizance with sureties in the amount of $50,000. Though free from prison, Groves must abide by many conditions, including staying away from Quadra Street and Pandora Avenue and not pos-

sessing or consuming alcohol. He’s also to surrender himself to the Victoria Law Courts on Oct. 26, 2012 or on the date set for the hearing of his appeal. It’s not uncommon for bail to be granted in these circumstances, said Crown spokesperson Neil MacKenzie. But the bar is set higher for those already convicted of a crime than for those who are awaiting trial.

GOLDSTREAM GOLDSTREAM NEWS NEWS GAZETTE GAZETTE -- Wednesday, Wednesday, January January 18, 18, 2012 2012

Accused in Sooke murder to have psychiatric assessment In the meantime the Sooke man will be assessed by a forensic psychiatrist “to see whether he is grounded in reality to retain and instruct counsel,” Conte's defence lawyer, Bill Heflin, told the Victoria News outside the courtroom. Conte spoke only a few words when answering questions posed by his lawyer. Sooke RCMP officers responded to a 911 call for help that came in on Jan. 8 at 3:30 p.m. from a home in the Park Village community of Sooke, at 2615 Otter Point Rd. Upon their arrival, investigators found a woman's body. Conte was arrested at the scene.

The man accused of the seconddegree murder of a 53-year-old Sooke woman is now working his way through the legal system. Alex Conte, 21, appeared via video conferencing in a Victoria courtroom last Thursday from the Vancouver Island Regional Correction Centre in Saanich. A publication ban enacted at the start of the court proceedings protects much of what was discussed before provincial court Judge Susan Wishart. Wishart scheduled Conte to appear by video at the Western Communities Courthouse in Colwood on Jan. 19 at 10:30 a.m.

Sisters of St. Ann art set for preservation Arnold Lim News staff

The Sisters are taking centre stage. While it won't be for another two years, 18 pieces of art, including an early Emily Carr painting given to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria from the Sisters of St. Ann, will be featured in an exhibition in 2013. While the wait may seem long, some have waited decades to see the Sisters finally getting the recognition they deserve. “I think they are a vital piece of the whole story of art and culture in our community and in B.C.,” said Art Gallery of Greater Victoria chief curator Mary Jo Hughes. “It is a part of the story people don't know about.” The four nuns, sisters Marie du Sacre Coeur Valois, Marie Angele Gauthier, Marie de la Conception Lane and Marie Lumena Brasseur travelled from Quebec and became the first nuns to arrive in British Columbia in 1858. Upon arrival they promptly turned a modest log cabin into a school for children and care home for the sick – eventually expanding their facilities over time to care for orphans and teach art to hundreds, if not thousands, of young girls. “If we do want to present the history of art-making and appreciation in the province this really adds a piece of the story we didn't touch upon before,” Hughes said. “It is also important to the history of wom-

Sister Marie Zarowny, Sisters of St. Ann Provincial Leader and Jon Tupper, Director of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria with some of the paintings from the Sisters’ art collection they have donated to the gallery. The painting between the two is of Mére Marie-Michel, one of the first four Sisters of the order. en’s art in B.C. Other than Emily Carr, we often just hear about the men in historical art. These were pioneer women artists that really made a difference in the community.” That difference was providing health care to the community which eventually led them to Carr’s sister Elizabeth, who suffered from cancer. As a thanks to the Sisters

who helped her, the artist gifted Wild Lillies, a painting she completed when she was 20 – which now resides in the AGGV as the oldest Carr in the collection. The Sisters’ vision eventually grew to include St. Ann's Residence (a care facility), Queenswood (a retreat centre) and national historic site St. Ann's Academy. After selling the academy to the province in the 1970s

and closing Queenswood after 43 years, showing the art became more and more challenging and the society gave the AGGV first dibs on the entire collection. “There is a certain nostalgia turning it over to the public but that is far outweighed by the assurance they will be well cared for and made available into the future,” said Sister Marie Zarowny, provincial leader for the Sisters of St. Ann. “There is no point having them and having them hidden in a cupboard. We felt they would provide really good stewardship of our paintings and provide them to the public in a way that was advantageous for the paintings, and make our legacy with regards to the art to the community known.” Other works from the collection include a Sister’s rendition of Raphael's Virgin and Child. Also included are local scenes of Clover point, Beacon Hill Park, the Gulf Islands and the Malahat – all from more than 100 years ago. Zarowny however, hopes the enduring memories will be of their influence on women’s art. “I would hope that what comes across is, even in pioneer times the recognition of creative expression being integral to the life of a human person is very important,” Zarowny said. “The importance of women artists … being recognized as valuable artists throughout history." editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Cougar Annie Tales brings life to light In the early 1900s the legendary west coast settler Cougar Annie was anything but a typical woman. She trapped more than 70 cougars, homesteaded a rainforest bog, opened a remote post office, and outlived four husbands. California-born Ada Annie Jordan settled in the Clayoquot coastal rainforest in 1915 with her first husband and three young children. A five-acre garden that she carved out of the wilderness provided food and income throughout her life. The bounty on cougars supplemented her income and she earned her nickname, Cougar Annie. Annie gave birth to eight more children in the remote location, and rarely left the property until old age and blindness forced her move to Port Alberni, where she died at age 97. Singer/songwriter Kat Kadoski lived in Clayoquot for three years care-taking Cougar Annie’s garden and immersing herself in the folklore surrounding the legendary pioneersettler. Drawing on many sources, including Annie’s family, Cougar Annie Tales uses stories, images, letters, and original compositions to celebrate the unconventional life of one of B.C.’s most colourful characters. Cougar Annie Tales is presented as a development workshop performance on Jan. 21, at 8 p.m., at Intrepid Theatre, Fisgard at Blanshard in Victoria. Tickets are $12 and $14 and are available at the door and at www. ticketrocket.org. For more information go to www. katrinakadoski.com.

Café Scientifique puts research in perspective Natalie North News staff

When University of Victoria astronomy and physics professor Chris Pritchet held a talk about dark energy and cosmology at a Calgary pub, he knew he had to bring the initiative back to Victoria. “I was just blown away. The level of questions was really high, the enthusiasm of the audience was really high,” Pritchet said. “There is a feeling among scientists that we don’t do enough to communicate what we do to the public. And when we do, we use media such as Powerpoint (that) create some distance between the speaker and the audience.” When Pritchet began organizing the events in 2009 — independently held discussions, in a casual setting, on popular topics between scientists and the public — he found he wasn’t the first to conceive of the plan. The Centre for Biomedical Research, led by Paul Zehr, had already hopped onto the worldwide trend in 2008 and has been hosting open discussions on medical issues at casual downtown Victoria locales ever since. “It’s a real first-person narrative,” Zehr said. “We’re really talking to the people who are doing those things, in many cases who are world leaders in what they’re discussing.” Last year Zehr welcomed Pritchet and the UVic Faculty of Science onto their slate of presenters. With growing demand,

the two groups have split to double their public outreach. “The Victoria community has really bought into UVic researchers coming out and working with them in an informal way,” Zehr said. “I’ve been keen to encourage more colleagues to do these kinds of events because there is a real appetite for them.”

“I’m a public servant and it’s my job to go tell people what I’m doing with their money.” –Colin Goldblatt Professor of earth and ocean sciences

Colin Goldblatt, professor in the Earth and ocean sciences department, discussed the evolution of the universe in layman’s terms on Jan. 10 when he presented the Physics and Chemistry of the Apocalypse: Runaway Greenhouses, Earth's Future and Venus’ Past — a challenge he puts into perspective with a quote from famed chemist Ernest Rutherford. “Back in the day, when you could say politically incorrect things like this, he’d say ‘if you can’t explain your physics to a barmaid, your physics probably aren’t very good,’” Goldblatt said. “If we can’t explain what we’re doing to everybody who’s intelligent and interested, but not trained, then I don’t think

it necessarily helps us to learn anything. I’m a public servant and it’s my job to go tell people what I’m doing with their money.” The Centre for Biomedical Research has held 30 talks and continues to fill the Maple Room at the Strathcona Hotel to capacity each month. Zehr hopes the success will inspire more of his colleagues to get involved, as UVic’s Centre on Aging has recently. “I think it’s really important to have this informal exchange between the university and the communities who are hosting these universities,” Zehr said. “It’s really nice interplay between the theory and the practical applications,” Pritchet added.

Next open discussion • All Café Scientifique events for the Centre for Biomedical Research will be held in the Maple Room of the Strathcona Hotel, 919 Douglas St. at 6:30 p.m. Events are free, but seating is limited. Reserve at cfbr@uvic. ca or 250-472-4067. • Up next: Dr. Alexandra Branzan Albu will lead Artificial intelligence: Friend or Foe, on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

After waking up one day with numb thighs, Darcie James’s life has been a tough battle. She was diagnosed in 2001 with multiple sclerosis and she has been unable to work since the diagnosis. “It’s crazy. (Multiple sclerosis) attacks the central nervous system,” Darcie said. “Day by day I don’t know what body part won’t work.” For her ongoing struggle, Darcie experiences numbness, tingling and vibrations throughout her body. Multiple sclerosis affects her vision, bladder and even her thought process. With the stress on her body mentally and physical Darcie struggles with fatigue. “It’s not just waking up tired it’s pure exhaustion,” Darcie said. “The fatigue is a huge thing,” added Darcie’s husband Kevin James.

Club and event organizer. This is the fifth year for the event that started out with humble beginnings. The first year the event raised $8,500 and last year was able to generate $110,000. “Our goal this year is to raise $115,000 and we want to help people locally,” Kowalski said. “The more money we raise, the more (researchers) will know and eventually they’ll figure out (a cure).”

All money raised at this event will stay within the South Island chapter of Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. “I honestly and truly believe there will be something (in MS research) in Darcie’s lifetime that will affect her life in a positive way,” Kevin said. “When MS is cured or is no longer an issue, VIGSA will continue to give back but it will be a different charity,” Kowalski said. The hockey game and banquet are on Jan. 28. The pre-banquet reception at the Westin Bear Mountain hotel, 1999 Country Club Way is from 5 to 6:45 pm. The banquet runs from 7 to 10 p.m. and is followed by the dance and other celebrations from 10 p.m. to midnight.

Royals end losing skid WHL, BCHL players listed in NHL rankings Travis Paterson News staff

The Victoria Royals ended their ten game losing streak with a 4-3 shootout win over the Brandon Wheat Kings on Saturday. It was the second stop of the Royals’ six-game jaunt through the prairies, which opened with a 7-3 loss to the Regina Pats on Friday. Saturday’s game came just five days after Victoria traded its top scorer, Kevin Sundher, to the Wheat Kings for defenceman Jordan Fransoo, forward Dakota Conroy and a first round bantam pick. As fate would have it, Sundher, Fransoo and Conroy all earned points in the game. Fransoo and Conroy even connected on the same goal. Sundher recorded two assists, but only after an uncharacteristic start. In the first 10 minutes he was called for high sticking, then slashing. Things got even worse when, with four minutes left in the opening period, Sundher was called for embellishment

on a hooking call against the Royals’ Tim Traber. However, any jokes about Sundher’s alliance were put to rest when he set up Mark Stone’s power play goal at the end of the first period to make it 2-0. Victoria had to come from behind to tie the game 3-3 on goals from Conroy (assisted by Fransoo), Brandon Magee and Jamie Crooks. Royals rookie Ben Walker scored in the third round of the shootout to win it. Prairie travels continue as the Royals visit Swift Current on Tuesday (Jan. 17), followed by Moose Jaw, Prince Albert and Saskatoon.

Scouting Vic players Saanich’s Wade Murphy has joined a pair of Victoria Royals in the mid-term rankings of the Central Scouting Services top eligible players for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Listed at No. 204 among North American skaters, Murphy is low on the list. But just the fact he’s on the radar, is what’s most important. Having been traded from the Victoria Grizzlies to the Penticton Vees, Murphy’s stock should rise. The Vees are the toast of the

B.C. Hockey League with just three losses in the team’s first 40 games. Murphy will be on centre stage as the Vees are favoured to win the Fred Page Cup as BCHL champions and have a good chance to represent B.C. and Alberta at the RBC Cup. Ranking a little higher than Murphy are Royals players Steven Hodges (Delta) at 55th and Logan Nelson (Rogers, MN) at 108th. In his second WHL season Hodges has 28 points on13 goals and 15 assists. Nelson is third in rookie scoring with 42 points – 18 goals and 24 assists.

Grist gets first goal It was a long time coming for Sam Grist as the North Saanich defenceman scored his first WHL goal on the weekend. A member of the powerhouse Tri City Americans, Grist is 6-foot-4, 200 lbs., and plays a reliable, stay-at-home style of game. It took him 96 games – nearly two full seasons with the Americans – to get his first goal. It came in a 5-3 loss to the Spokane Chiefs on Saturday when Grist blasted a slap shot from the point that caromed in off a defender. sports@vicnews.com

Watching the battle for Libya unfold before their eyes won’t be a memory hundreds of military personnel aboard an Esquimalt-based warship will soon forget. HMCS Vancouver is now heading home to CFB Esquimalt from the Mediterranean Sea, where it patrolled the Libyan coast with NATO allies last fall, and later hunted for terrorists in the politically fragile region. As rockets fired into the night along Libya’s coast last October, Vancouver’s crew marked the progress made by advancing Libyan interim government forces. Moammar Gadhafi forces finally fell in late October. “A lot of people fortunately don’t see this (type of conflict)

every day,” the ship’s captain, Cmdr. Brad Peats, told reporters by phone from aboard Vancouver. “At night it’s almost like fireworks. The rocket fire would light up the sky at night and you could see explosions, and even during the day you would see the puffs of black smoke. “We understood the gravity of the situation that was going on there.” The frigate left CFB Esquimalt last July, carrying about 250 people, including an air crew and Sea King helicopter from 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron in Pat Bay. “Over three patrols totalling 58 days Vancouver travelled the Libyan coast, from Tobruk to Tripoli, conducting operations such as escorting mine sweepers, boarding vessels of interest and gathering information on Gadhafi forces’ movements,” Peats, an Esquimalt resident, said adding that Vancouver’s crew boarded three vessels. “Being over there, and certainly during Operation Unified Protector, I’ve no doubt that Vancouver ... saved lives.”

In fact, the ship’s crew collected intelligence that, along with data compiled by other allies, allowed NATO to conduct air strikes to take out scud-missile launch sites, Peats said. That operation ended Oct. 31, but the work didn’t. The Canadian government announced it would maintain a presence in the politically charged region until the end of 2012, as part of the counter-terrorism mission, known as Operation Active Endeavour. HMCS Charlottetown, from Halifax, will take up where Vancouver leaves off. Vancouver’s long-term deployment, which touched the four corners of the Mediterranean Sea, cost about $1.4 million a month. Peats credited his crew for their hard work and said everyone is now looking forward to seeing loved ones. “You can see it in the crew’s faces that we’re starting to think of home,” he said. “To say that we’re excited about coming home would be a bit of an understatement.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com
