Malahat drivers feel the heat Crackdown targets speeders, commercial trucks Sam Van Schie

Highlands OKs land gift for community centre

News staff

The electronic message board above the Trans Canada Highway near Langford says it all: increased traffic enforcement ahead on the Malahat Drive. It's no secret that as drivers wind their their way through the twists and turns of the main highway connecting Greater Victoria to communities up Island that extra police are watching them. The “Making the Malahat Safer� enforcement campaign launched at the beginning of July and in the first two weeks officers wrote almost 600 speeding tickets, 11 of which resulted in a seven day impoundment for excessive speed. Another 100 drivers were slapped with fines for offenses ranging from failure to wear a seat belt or using a mobile devise while driving. Five were caught impaired and two without a valid licence. Last Wednesday officers were joined by members of the Ministry of Transportation’s commercial vehicle safety and enforcement branch who closed one north bound lane on Peden's Stretch to stop and inspect commercial trucks. The routine check was similar to what would normally be performed at the weigh scale in Duncan. “We're looking for the minimum operating requirements — checking breaks, tires, lights,� explained Brian Kangas, manager of vehicle inspections and standards with the CVSE. After the inspection, which can

If something is seriously wrong the vehicle is taken off the road. Also of concern is driver fitness. One driver was fined almost $600 for going three days without filling out a driving log, another watched his truck towed for driving with an expired licence. “Commercial vehicles make up a significant amount of highway users and can do a lot of damage if they aren't fit to drive,� said RCMP Const. Robert Figueiredo of the Integrated Road Safety Unit.

“Commercial vehicles make up a significant amount of highway users and can do a lot of damage if they aren’t fit to drive.� –Const. Robert Figueiredo IRSU In April, a fuel tanker truck driver was allegedly impaired when he crashed and spilled 42,000 litres of gasoline into the Goldstream River while rounding one of the many sharp turns on Malahat Drive. More recently, on July 1, a motorcyclist was struck and killed by another allegedly

drunk driver just south of the Malahat. “It's a dangerous road and we want to see it as safe as possible for everyone,� Figueiredo said. While the lane was blocked off, police also had their licence plate scanner to watch for people driving without the appropriate licence or insurance, as well as watching for speeders. Traffic was backed up for a few kilometres as a result of the lane closure, but officers cleared the road by 2 p.m. to avoid slowing down commuter traffic. Making the Malahat Safer campaign will continue throughout the summer. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Highlands is one step closer to building its long-awaited community centre. Council passed bylaws on July 18 allowing resident Fred York to gift 20-acres of land to the District in exchange for allowing him to subdivide his property. York plans to divide two adjacent properties at the intersection of Millstream Road and Finlayson Arm Road into 11 lots, each between three and five acres. The 90 acres, including land for the community centre, is still subject to rezoning. The land gifted to Highlands, which is the eastern portion of York’s property at Millstream and Finlayson Arm roads, is the favoured site for the future community centre. The District needs to break ground soon — a provincial grant for the building project expires in March 2013. The grant will cover 80 per cent of the cost of the centre or up to $400,000. “We only have two or three letters on file in opposition,� noted Coun. Sigurd Johannesen. “If I look at this (application) without a community centre I think I can support it, so by adding a community centre it’s just a bonus.� During the public hearing last week, council heard plenty of community support for the project.

Gene Simmons and clan hit View Royal Hundreds line up for chance to meet rock legend Charla Huber News staff

It was worth the long wait and long lines as hundreds of people came face to face with rock legend Gene Simmons and family in View Royal on Saturday. The famed reality TV clan — Simmons, his wife Shannon Tweed and their kids Nick and Sophie — were met with screams and cheers from more than 1,500 people packed outside the Great Canadian Casino. Speaking about the roaring audience, the Kiss frontman shrugged: “The rest of the world says Canadians are nice. It’s true.” In quick interviews with the Gazette and other local media, Simmons, 61, played coy on if he plans to wed his long-time partner Tweed, as alluded to on their reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels. Tweed was not wearing a wedding band during the event. “I’ve never been married. I desperately love Shannon Tweed. We’ve been together 28 years,” Simmons said. “We have two great kids. Tomorrow is another day. All I can deal with is today.” After decades of success with the rock band Kiss and the longrunning reality TV show, Simmons says he has always lived the life he wanted. When Simmons was a boy growing up in Israel and then the U.S., his parents only had one dream for him. “They wanted me to be anything (I wanted to be). Healthy and happy,” Simmons said. His advice to kids dreaming of becoming rock stars is be prepared to go “where the fires are burning.” Waxing philosophically, he said if you have the talent and the drive often people have to find the right place at the right time for themselves. “Whatever it is you want to become, sometimes where you are from doesn’t have it all. That’s just life,” Simmons said. “Be proud of who you are, but the mountain is never going to come to you.” Now in its sixth season, Gene Simmons Family Jewels has cast

View Royal Mayor Graham Hill smiles for a photo op with Gene Simmons and his daughter Sophie Tweed-Simmons. Simmons’ partner and kids in the spotlight, and helped him gain insight into his own personality. “I think it has made us a closer family,” Simmons said. “(The show) helps me realize my perception of myself isn’t accurate. Sometimes I can be short, arrogant, selfish. It’s good to watch.” Despite a busy schedule with the reality show — which was filming during the View Royal stop — and touring dates with Kiss, Simmons still revels in the personal meet-and-greet events, such as in View Royal.

This story has accompanying video images at www. goldstreamgazette.com. “Staying home and twiddling my thumbs and watching I Love Lucy reruns or coming out here, what would you chose?” Simmons asked. Sophie Tweed-Simmons, Simmons daughter, said she loves travelling with her family and coming to places such as View Royal. “I have been travelling since I was 13,” said Sophie, 19. “I have been to 15 different countries and lived in five.” Even with a rock-star father and model mother, Sophie said her parents are strict. “There is zero tolerance for drinking or partying. My parents do encourage us to go out, but just not to be idiots about it.”

Fans waited in the morning sun for hours and some all night for a chance to meet the rock icon and his family. Crowds waiting to get a glimpse of the Simmons family were mostly made up of families themselves. Along with his parents, Landen Shaw, 11, brought his guitar in hopes of getting a photo with the Simmons family. When Landen met Simmons on stage, he played him a few chords of the Kiss song “I was Made For Loving You” and got some guitar pointers from the Kiss bass player himself. “This has got to be the biggest day in View Royal history,” remarked View Royal Mayor Graham Hill. “I have been asked to welcome royalty here today.” Rob Cuitanovic of Victoria, brought his children Sofia, 8, and Marco, 6, to meet the Simmons family. A hardcore Kiss fan, Cuitanovic brought the board game Kissopoly, “Kiss This” bottle of wine and a 1997 Kiss tour program. He’s been collecting Kiss memorabilia for 14 years and seen Simmons perform three times. “I think it’s cool (Simmons and family are coming). As a family they are pretty grounded. Not like typical celebrities.” “Meeting Gene would make my life,” remarked Kayla Butts, 16, who drove from Salmon Arm for a chance to meet the family. “My dad has listened to Kiss my whole life. My 95-year-old grandma loves them too.” reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

Supporters spoke of the need for a community hall and the generosity of York offering the land to the community. “Communities are built on crossroads,” Highlands resident Neville Grigg told council. “The plan makes sense.” Some residents are concerned over the construction of future homes and whether they would meet progressive environmental standards. The proposed single family dwellings are already “over represented in the Highlands,” remarked resident Pattie Whitehouse. Former Highlands mayor Mark Cardinal spoke in support of the project. “I wish in my time (on council) that we has an application that was this so easy to decide on as this application,” Cardinal said. “This is something the community has long deserved.”

Jail break foiled at Wilke

ARE YOU A BUDDING FILM MAKER? DO YOU LIKE TO TELL STORIES?

Kyle Slavin News staff

An attempted prison escape reminiscent of the breakout in the film The Shawshank Redemption was foiled at the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre. Two prisoners were involved in the attempt, which was uncovered the morning of July 17 by corrections officials when they discovered a large hole in the ceiling of a cell inside the maximum security facility. The escape attempt was first reported by the Gazette’s sister paper, the Saanich News. “The circumstances are dramatic and very movie-like,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “I can confirm that our detectives are investigating this incident … It involves the potential for a breach of security at the jail.” The hole was large enough for an individual to fit through, though Jantzen could not say whether any prisoner actually breached his cell. “At no time was there any risk to public safety,” Jantzen said. The Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General won’t comment on what happened, but did confirm an incident took place. “As soon as the hole was dis-

Prisoner overcrowding is being blamed by some for an escape close-call at the Wilkinson Road jail earlier this month. covered, B.C. Corrections contacted Saanich police to start an investigation into the attempted escape,” a ministry spokesman said. Dean Purdy, chair of corrections with the B.C. Government Employees Union said no staff members were injured, but the attempt had “the potential to be very serious.” “I can say that overcrowding in the living unit where this occurred possibly played a part,” Purdy said. The prison was built in 1985 to hold 206 inmates, but routinely houses 350 to 400. He said 15 to 20 guards would’ve been working at the time of the incident. VIRCC, located on Wilkinson

Road, is both a remand facility and a prison for inmates sentenced up to two years less a day in jail. William Head in Metchosin, the other prison in the region, is minimum security and has group housing units instead of cellblocks. Neither Saanich police or the ministry would say whether the two inmates involved are in remand or serving a sentence. “This is another example of how difficult the job of a correctional officer is,” Purdy said. “We have to be ever-vigilant against escape attempts, homemade weapons, assaults on staff and the ongoing violence that occurs inside our correctional facilities.”

North Langford nets new playing field Edward Hill News staff

Over the span of a workday, a new grass community playing field sprouted up at Lakewood elementary school last Thursday. English Lawn crews rolled out dozens of thick Western turf grass bundles, methodically carpeting 62,000 square metres of earth. It’s been a long time coming — the site has been ready since last fall, but consistently rainy weather stalled laying turf. The project is split between Langford and the Sooke School District, with each chipping in about $175,000, said Langford parks manger Mike Leskiw. It’s a steal of a deal — at $350,000 the 95 by 65 metre field cost less than half then full asking price. Leskiw said companies donated or sold at-cost soil, irrigation piping and retaining wall blocks. “We got a lot of great deals. The soil alone would have cost $400,000 but most was donated,” he said. “A lot of products came for free or

Using a rolling machine and hard labour, foreman Ricky Styles

said they can build a field in less than a day, but they have to move fast. Turf has a short shelf life. “You have to be careful, it’s definitely a delicate process, especially laying it on sand,” Styles said. “But we can do this in a day.”

“This is a really good example of the school district and City working together to save money and build something for the whole community,” Leskiw remarked. “And it’s the only full-sized field north of the highway.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Province launches one-stop, online database Tom Fletcher Black Press

Government communications have traditionally been built around a stream of propaganda, with the emphasis on pictures and text arranged to show the ruling politicians of the day in a flattering light. Mundane public services such as permit application forms have been more difficult to find, requiring citizens to know which ministry is responsible for which service. And less flattering information has often been available only to those who demand it under freedom of information. Some of that changed for the B.C. government, as it unveiled a reorganized set of official websites that chooses information priorities based on what citizens are most likely to be looking for. The home page of the B.C. government website at www.gov.bc.ca still features the smiling portrait of Premier Christy Clark. But it’s now as easy to find a cabinet minister’s travel expenses (www. openinfo.gov.bc.ca ) as it is to find a picture of his or her latest ribbon-cutting. Services and application forms are now prominent on the main government website, based on the number of public requests for them and surveys conducted in recent months. Features such as DriveBC and emergency flood updates are included in a “carousel” of most popular sites at the centre of the home page. B.C. Information and Privacy Commissioner Elizabeth Denham issued a report last year that called on the provincial government to begin routine disclosure of information. Denham said the new policy requires ministries to routinely post responses to freedom of information requests and to designate categories of information for routine release at no charge. She is encouraged by the first step. “This policy demonstrates intent by government to adopt a presumption favouring disclosure,” Denham said. The project also includes a searchable public database of government statistics on more than 2,000 subjects, such as birth rates, public sector salaries and school test scores. Clark said the intention of DataBC (www. data.gov.bc.ca) is to allow independent researchers to find new ways to use the data and contribute to public policy.

Police chase ends in Saanich swamp A View Royal man suspected of impaired driving tried to elude police and crashed into a swamp Wednesday morning. A Victoria police canine handler going off duty spotted the a truck being driven erratically near Tillicum Road at about 5 a.m. The vehicle veered onto dead-end Kent Road in an effort to evade police. A passenger, who wasn’t located, jumped out of the pickup as it was moving. The driver pulled a quick U-turn and sped at the pursuing police vehicle, lost control and crashed into a grassy, wooded area. The police dog found and nabbed the 19-year-old man in four feet of water. He advised police that he couldn’t swim. Saanich police found out the truck was stolen in Sooke that night. Sgt. Dean Jantzen said the man wasn’t impaired after all, “he was just driving the stolen truck poorly.” The View Royal man is well known to police and faces charges of possession of stolen property, possession of break-in instruments and a breach of conditional sentence.

OUR VIEW

Expenses list good first step T

ravelling the province is an integral part of an MLA’s job in B.C. We get that. But when the travel expenses of a minister who lives in the same town as the legislature are third-highest of any government cabinet member — Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and Oak BayGordon Head MLA Ida Chong — it causes us to raise our eyebrows. The expense information on Chong and other ministers was available — if you knew where to look — prior to the Liberal government’s introduction last week of its DataBC website. But it took the government’s example, that similar information for all B.C. MLAs can now readily be found by the public, for us to take more notice of spending by cabinet ministers. The increased transparency on MLA spending is a step in the right direction. While the bills chalked up by other Capital Region politicians in their duties as MLAs didn’t raise any red flags, the fact that anyone can now access such information is a better public service. It’s important also that transparency in government be taken further. B.C. still lags behind other provinces in terms of availability of receipts and other more detailed expense accounts. Since there is no real watchdog in B.C. for appropriate expenditures by elected representatives, it’s up to the public to keep watch on such things. And it’s also up to the public and taxpayer lobby groups to keep up the pressure on government to open up the accounts to more public scrutiny. The perception of secrecy in government is one of the key ingredients in a denigration of trust in government. Moving to make the accounting by elected individuals, as well as government as a whole, more transparent is the surest way to gain favour with the electorate. That’s something current and future administrations in B.C. may wish to take a closer look at as they head toward election time. What do you think?

da’s House of Commons, and its increased popularity, is now under temptation to bland down into one more Liberal-Conservative party and thereby become the secret friend of the corporate power elite. Arguably such a move would be like climbing aboard a sinking ship. Anger is rising against a political and economic system that crushes the poor and cushions the rich and powerful. Barely a hint of that rage in the blogosphere reaches us through the gee-whiz view of the world supplied by daily newspapers, radio and television. In the daily media, suffering appears as entertainment. Bloodshed provides shock and thrills. Where millions of people are under threat of death from starvation, disease, gang violence and war, the glimpses of horror are comfortably sandwiched between sales pitches for soap, summer drinks and more and more stuff to display in our mortgaged houses. A chorus of voices on the Internet reject this fuzzy popular viewpoint. How does the NDP stay true to its name as the party of new practical ideas in the Tommy Douglas tradition while treading carefully to avoid offending the elites? I don’t know how, but I believe the party can achieve the miracle. gemort@pacificcoast.net —G.E. Moritmore is a Langfordbased writer. Think About It appears every second week in the Gazette.

events are accelerating due to huge consumption of fossil fuels and emissions of greenhouse gases. I’ve been careful not to make any sweeping statements about the evolving science of climate change. But the sheer power of recent weather events, and the scars left by bark beetles and fires, are difficult to ignore. Australia has just taken bolder steps than those of B.C., imposing a carbon tax on the country’s 500 largest carbon emitters. The government proposes to collect the revenues for three years and invest them in renewable energy, transition for coal and steel industries and tax cuts for consumers who will have industrial carbon taxes passed on to them in the price of goods. Then the Australian carbon tax is supposed to convert to an emissions trading system designed to push industry into a cleaner future. B.C.’s carbon tax doesn’t exempt industry as its critics sometimes claim. The tax is imposed on all fuels used in industry, but hasn’t been extended to industrial process emissions. By far the largest greenhouse gas source in B.C. remains vehicles, at around 40 per cent of the total. tfletcher@blackpress.ca —Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

It’s great to hear that a push is on to reduce Malahat woes: lower speeds, grab offenders, save lives. However, I do wonder how many lost lives and injuries could be attributed to Gordon Campbell’s B.C. Liberal election promise (actually kept) to abolish the photo radar. I drove that stretch during its presence and slowed down, and I’m sure it was an effective program, both in terms of cost, officer deployment and results. Why not bring that back? Don Wilkes Langford

Feeling the effects of climate change African famine is something we have been exposed to by the media for most of our lives and so we say: “isn’t that too bad” and go on with our lives. This time, however, we are looking at a disaster of unprecedented proportions when we look at what is happening in East Africa. According to estimates by the UN’s World Food Program, as many as 38 million Africans are living under the threat of starvation, and many will succumb if emergency relief does not reach them in time. To put that in perspective look at that as being more than the entire population of Canada and you will get a grasp of the horror of what is happening to the human race in that part of the world. We really do not have to look that far afield to see the upswing in flooding, fires, droughts, tornados and other natural disasters happening on the North

American continent. Perhaps we could look at it as the usual situation in our comfortable lives, unless we stop and look at the realities of global warming. The United States and Canada rank No. 2 and No. 7 in carbon dioxide emissions globally. So looking at those stats perhaps we can make a link to our glut of energy consumption and the climatic disasters happening worldwide. Most scientists accept that CO2 is the problem while less than one per cent question that link. There are some steps we can take here. First of all, send whatever donations you are able to make for African relief to whatever agencies are involved in alleviating the impact of African famine. Secondly, take steps to reduce your own energy usage, and third, lobby your MP and your federal government to recognize the disaster that world wide global warming is quickly becoming and to start from the top down to put policies in place to reduce the impact of carbon fuels. This is not just a disaster that is happening in a far off place. We on Vancouver Island have been extremely fortunate so far, but how far down the road will it be when it will come to us in higher fuel prices, food shortages and natural disasters? We all need to do our part, no matter how small. Shirley Stirrett Langford

The following are points I have observed or had been told by Nisga’a people: • The treaty land area is only five per cent of the traditional land area, making it difficult for Nisga’a to benefit from resource extractive industries in the area. In particular, the current trend to export whole logs from timber areas makes it difficult, if not impossible, to generate “value-added employment” opportunities. Letters continued on Page A10

Victoria’s first foodies featured in new museum book Some colourful characters kept residents fed and watered in city’s formative years Kyle Slavin News staff

Well before the savoury flavours of Pig BBQ Joint graced Blanshard Street and before Wannawafel’s sweet Belgian treats could be smelled in the Inner Harbour, Victoria’s relationship with food looked quite different. That scenario is the subject of a new book co-authored by the Royal B.C. Museum’s manager of human history, Robert Griffin, and museum volunteer Nancy Oke, who spearheaded the project. “We have quite a food packaging collection. And looking through it, we didn’t know a lot about it,” Griffin recalls of the initial discussions eight years ago that prompted the book. “How do you capture food and

Sooke-based funny man knocking them dead Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

Kevin Banner is officially one of the funniest people on the Island. And he just happens to be from Sooke. Banner won $5,000 in an online viewer poll at Bite.ca as part of a comedy competition called Stand Up & Bite Me, hosted by comic Colin Mochrie. “I never thought I would get flown out to Toronto,” said Banner, who was accepted into the contest after submitting a 15-minute demo tape. He beat seven competitors for the top prize. Banner, 28, has been active on the comedy scene in Victoria,

where he is a regular fixture at Hecklers Bar and Grill on Gorge Road, and in Sooke, where he hosts the Stump Ranch Comedy night once a month at Mulligans Bar and Grill. He’s done 70 or 80 shows so far this year. But the road to success has been a long one. “I’ve been doing (standup) for six years – I’ve been funny for about 18 months,” he said. In high school, he wanted to be a professional wrestler. “I went down to California to do a boot camp thing and it hurts. (In comedy there’s) a lot less folding chairs to worry about.” Standup was something he always wanted to do, but never

Tired of working odd jobs, Banner began calling local pubs and clubs to see if he could perform during open mike nights. At the time, Victoria didn’t have much of a comedy scene, he said. “It’d be 10 guys doing Jack Johnson and Sublime covers on their acoustic guitars, and then I’d do Photo contributed standup. It was always Comedian Kevin Banner collected kind of awkward.” He started out doing $5,000 for winning a national contest. shows at Logan’s Pub seriously pursued. “The whole and performing here and there thing of writing my own material in Sooke. It wasn’t until he got to – I didn’t think it was something I Hecklers that things started to take off. could do.”

About a year and a half ago, the pub began having a monthly amateur comedy night. Now it’s featured every second Sunday. “For the longest time it was just me – I wasn’t learning much, I wasn’t growing much. Hecklers being there has just been monumental for that.” Banner has collaborated with some top Canadian performers – he opened for Alberta funnyman Dan Quinn on New Year’s Eve at Hecklers, and recently had Graham Clark do a show in Sooke.

Provincial gold for bantam B1 lacrosse Charla Huber News staff

A young team of West Shore lacrosse players took home the gold medal at the bantam B lacrosse provincials on July 17. The gold medal game was a head-to-head match between the West Shore lacrosse B1 bantam team and Port Coquitlam, at Panorama Recreation Centre. Each time the West Shore team scored a goal it was matched by the opposition until the score was tied at 3-3. Eventually the Port Coquitlam team could not keep up and the West Shore boys won 5-3. “It was pretty amazing,” said bantam captain Jake Campbell, 12, from Langford. “We aren’t all star players but we played as a team and passed the ball a lot.” Even with the team finishing up its season with a bang, Hayden Francis, 13, from Langford said the team had its struggles. “We didn’t gel as a team until midway through the season,” Francis said adding once the team doubled its practices the players grew closer together. Francis unfortunately suffered a concussion after being checked into the boards during the first game, and had to sit out the rest of the tournament.

Charla Huber/News staff

Josh Soberg, Jesse Gough, Jake Campbell, Derek Kuhnert and Hayden Francis, of the West Shore bantam B1 lacrosse team, are happy to wear their first place provincial gold medals. Another set back the team found was having only four left-handed players. Derek Kuhnert, 13, from Colwood, said being a “lefty” allowed him more time on the floor during games. The advantage for the southpaws was to be able to throw the ball from areas of the box that a righthanded player would have more trouble with. “Left-handers are hard to get (on a team), I don’t know why,” said coach Ken Passfield. Over the season the team played 14 games, winning nine, losing two and tying three games. “I was very happy with this group of boys. They

have been improving from Day 1 to the end of the season,” Passfield said. “This is the first time any of these boys have won a gold medal (at provincials).”

Peewee C2 takes bronze in provincials After conquering the Island championships, the West Shore peewee C2 lacrosse team earned a bronze medal at provincials. The team travelled to Vernon to compete against the top eight- to 12-year-old players in the province. While returning home with a bronze medal around their necks, some players

were a little disappointed hoping they would have made it farther in the competition. “(A bronze medal) is better than nothing,” said Carter Wood, 10, from Langford. The team had a diverse group of players. Some had been running with a lacrosse stick for half their lives while other players were freshmen to the sport. Ethan Howes, 12, from Colwood, towers over his teammates and said he enjoyed his first season in the sport. “It’s really fun, and I get to hit people,” Howes said. At the beginning of the season the team didn’t have a coach, which led to a slow start for the season. Within a couple weeks of the season starting, Mike Jensen took on the responsibility as coach. “This is a really good group of kids and their camaraderie was great,” Jensen said. “I was really impressed.” The team won the Island championship in Kerry Park when they beat out Nanaimo in overtime on June 26. At that point in the season, Nanaimo was an undefeated team, Jensen said. “This is the best team I’ve ever coached,” he said. sports@goldstreamgazette.com

Got a Question?

RIGHT OR WRONG? Q & A With Rosalind

Uncommon sense for marketplace decisions with Rosalind Scott, Executive Director, BBB If you have a question or experience that you would like to share with Rosalind Scott please email rosalindscott@vi.bbb.org.

Q: Dear BBB, This morning I received a threatening phone call from a man that claimed I had a court action filed against me. He gave me a legitimate sounding file number for the court action as proof. The man claimed that the matter was in regards to a loan of $4000 in my name that I had not paid. He told me, in a rather aggressive tone, that I would be arrested if I did not pay the loan promptly as per the court action. He then proceeded to make a claim that for $250 and my Social Insurance Number, that they could stop the warrant for my arrest. The caller was so threatening and aggressive, I was unnerved, but I was pretty sure that this was a scam of some sort, so I just hung up the phone. Is this a scam? Has anyone else reported something like this? Is there something I should be doing to ensure that there isn’t a court action against me? ~ Frightened Friend A: Frightened Friend, You were RIGHT to assume this caller was a scam artist and to hang up the phone. If you legitimately had a court action filed against you in regards to an unpaid loan, you would likely have been informed, prior to this phone call, about the matter. They key red flags that this is a scam include the aggressive approach of the caller, the threat that a warrant for your arrest could be stopped with a payment, and the request for your Social Insurance Number. If you are concerned for some reason that there is an unpaid loan out there in your name, it would be wise to check your credit report (with Equifax or TransUnion) to see if there are any unknown loans on your file. I doubt you will find anything suspicious. It is probably more likely that this fraudster was hoping to bully you into giving out personal information for the purposes of identity theft or financial fraud. We have not received other reports locally about this matter, but I am sure the scammer is randomly targeting phone numbers (possibly world wide) in hopes that someone will fall for his threats. Besides informing the BBB it would also be wise for you to inform your local police and to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (1 (888) 495-8501) to report this.

SPORTS NEWS IN BRIEF

Vision Matters

Self treatment of tired eyes

If your eyes get tired or inflamed occasionally, taking eye drops to make them feel better may actually increase the risk of future problems. Your eyes are very precious and delicate. They should never be treated without the advice of your eye care professional. Valuable time may be lost in detecting vision problems if you decide to treat tired or inflamed eyes yourself. It could be that the eye drops feel soothing or you believe washing out your eyes with a home remedy is all you need to relieve a minor eye problem. True, not all inflamed eyes are a sign of something serious, and perhaps the condition will soon alleviate itself. However, any persistent eye problem, even a minor one, should have professional care, as it could be a symptom of something more serious. You should have your eyes examined regularly, even if you’ve never had a problem in seeing clearly. You should have them examined to ensure they remain healthy and function properly.

Probe continues into sub crash Erin McCracken News staff

PM

Pastor: Fr. Paul Szczur, SDS

A military investigation continues after a Canadian submarine struck the ocean floor off the west coast of Vancouver Island. The Canadian Forces launched a board of inquiry less than a week after HMCS Corner Brook, Canada's only operational submarine before the accident, hit bottom on June 4 while on a 12-day advanced submarine officer training exercise. Lt.-Cmdr. Paul Sutherland took command of the vessel in May. Since June 10, the investigation team is taking witness testimony and reviewing evidence to determine what led to the collision and who, if anyone, may be at fault, said navy Lt. Heather McDonald, with public affairs at the Department of National Defence in Ottawa. “After the investigation is

completed, the results will be reviewed by the chain of command before any public release is considered,” McDonald said. Boards of inquiry are called when there are serious or complex incidents involving the Canadian Forces or a military member. At the time of the crash, two submariners received minor bruising in the collision. Sixty submariners were on board. They were receiving refresher training in anticipation of their boat achieving full operational status next spring. Corner Brook was to continue operating at sea for another three weeks, but the board of inquiry began and the boat never returned to the water. Instead, a team of submariners and civilian defence workers began preparing the vessel for extended maintenance next year, said McDonald. Pre-maintenance work on the sub will continue at CFB

Esquimalt until it is moved to the federal government’s drydock across Esquimalt harbour next July, to “provide the Victoria-class submarine’s 200-plus systems with the deep maintenance required to allow the boat to operate for another six years, prior to entering another (maintenance period),” McDonald said, adding how long that process will take and how much it will cost isn't known since the amount of work varies vessel to vessel. Work on each sub must be individually negotiated within a larger 15-year contract of up to $1.5 billion that the Department of National Defence awarded to the Canadian Submarine Management Group in 2008. Victoria Shipyards is a subcontractor on the project. “Given that submarines are among the most highly complex machines that exist, maintaining them is a very complex process,” McDonald said.

old! Gold! Gold! It seems like that’s all you hear about nowadays, but with good reason. “It’s a modern day gold rush”, says Roadshow expert Kevin Duncan. “Ever since the recession hit in 2008, there’s been a major shift in economic stability. Precious metals have seen a tremendous rise in value, with gold trading at record prices and silver climbing close to where it used to be in the early 1980’s.” Here at the Roadshow we’ve noticed an enormous increase in the amount of gold scrap, gold jewelry, gold coins, silver scrap, silver jewelry, and silver coins that have come into our showrooms. Gold scrap has single-handedly been the most seen item at the Roadshow in the past 12 months. All types of broken jewelry, missing earrings, charm bracelets, and anything gold that’s collecting dust should definitely be brought into the Roadshow!

“Here at the Roadshow we’ve noticed an enormous increase in the amount of gold scrap, gold jewelry, gold coins, silver scrap, silver jewelry, and silver coins that have come into our showrooms. Gold scrap has single-handedly been the most seen item at the Roadshow in the past 12 months..” At one of our shows in British Columbia, a man walked in who was a retired dentist. Throughout his years of practice, he accumulated a jar of gold fillings from his patients who required them to be removed. “The patients never wanted to take them home, so I kept them in a jar, and over the years it turned into a large pile of golden teeth!” , exclaimed dentist Jeffrey Adams. Along with his golden teeth, Dr. Adams brought in some of his wife’s broken and unused jewelry, and was able to walk out of the Roadshow with over $8,000! Not bad for a jar of old teeth and broken necklaces! During a time where the average household income is living from paycheck to paycheck, now is the best time to come into the Roadshow and exchange some of the old or broken jewelry that’s just sitting around in your drawer, and get paid on the spot for it!

See you at the Roadshow!
