Notorious dumpsite comes up clean Flu shot season arrives Once a threat to groundwater, sewage lagoons erased from Millstream Meadows Charla Huber News staff

The sounds of birds chirping and frogs croaking in a meadow nestled in Highlands is a far cry from the toxic dumpsite it once was. Muddy craters filled with murky water have been replaced with a manicured field of gravel at Millstream Meadows, a former regional dump that once threatened to contaminate Highlands groundwater. The site is on the homestretch of a long, expensive process of remediation. Of the 13-hectare area, two septage lagoons near Millstream Road were deemed the most unsafe. Lagoon 1 was excavated and filled with clean earth. A portion of Lagoon 2 was excavated and left open and fenced off, with bedrock still exposed. In total 76,000 metric tonnes of contaminated soil was excavated and trucked away in the fall of 2008 in a $10 million project. The contaminated area was less than one hectare. “The lagoons are safe in terms of that there is no evidence (of any contaminants) moving out,” said Mary Anne Fillipone, manager for the Capital Regional District's environmental programs. Golder and Associates is monitoring Millstream Meadows quarterly through 35 wells scattered throughout the property. One of the wells in the centre of Lagoon 1 reaches down to bedrock, and is monitored monthly. “We do this to ensure the water quality is good and no contamination moves back into the area,” Fillipone said. “When we excavated we believe we got the bulk of the main source of contamination.” There is no evidence that contaminants remain or are migrating out of former sewage lagoons, Fillipone said.

Health officials aren’t expecting a mass H1N1 vaccination like last year, but people should still get their flu shot as soon as possible, says Vancouver Island’s top doctor. “The vaccine is the most effective way to protect yourself from flu epidemics that happen every year,” said Dr. Murray Fyfe, chief medical health officer with Vancouver Island Health Authority. While cold and stomach flu viruses made the rounds in past months, Fyfe points out it’s still early for more serious influenza attacks, which usually affect people between November and January. “It’s best to get vaccinated as soon as you can,” ■ Seniors, toddlers and he said. “It takes other at-risk groups can about two weeks get a free flu shot today for your system to (Oct. 14 at West Shore build up immunity Parks and Recreation, to the flu strains in Lookout Lounge, 9:30 the vaccine.” a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Seniors over 65, toddlers between six and 23 months of age and caregivers, among other at-risk groups can receive a free flu vaccine beginning today (Oct. 14). This year’s flu shot includes protection from H1N1 and two other strains of the virus. Fyfe expects a fairly regular flu season this year, given there haven’t been outbreaks of new viruses in other parts of the world. Still, it’s no guarantee. “Flu viruses are very unpredictable and can mutate mid-season,” Fyfe said, explaining that is why people who are vaccinated may still get the flu.

Camosun monitors health of Colwood’s Coburg peninsula Sam Van Schie

“A healthy dune will slow (erosion) down, but it won’t stop it.”

News staff

An ecology class at Camosun College is helping track the re-growth of native plants at Esquimalt Lagoon. The project began in 2007 when the Esquimalt Lagoon Stewardship Initiative planted grasses and flowers on the Coburg peninsula beach to restore dune habitat on the ocean side of the lagoon. “We didn’t know if the plants would even survive. There’s a lot of human disturbance from people using the beach,” said ecology instructor Dave Blundon. Each semester his students inventory everything growing in areas where the plantings took place and compare that to unaltered control areas. Research plots are intentionally unmarked, so they’re just as likely to have people trample them as anywhere on the beach. “So far what we’re finding is native species are increasing, both in areas where they were planted and in control plots,” Blundon said, explaining that seeds from the native species drift into the control areas. A healthy dune ecosystem can help protect the lagoon against erosion, which has been eating away at beach since the Royal Bay gravel mine closed and cut off the constant supply of sediment that helped create the peninsula.

–Dave Blundon Ecology instructor

Sam Van Schie/News staff

Camosun students Josh McInnes and Maria Samuels record gum weed growth at the Esquimalt Lagoon, a species planted to slow erosion of the Coburg peninsula.

Roots of planted species — including dune grass, gum weed, bur weed and beach pea — helps hold the sand in place. This is important when big storms hit. “With rising sea levels and global warming, storms are becoming more intense,” Blundon said. “The plants’ root systems should hold the sand and keep it from eroding away.” Blundon hopes the findings from his class’s study will prompt new funding to plant more native species in the dunes. The City of Colwood has looked into engineering options to prevent erosion of the beach, including replenishing the beach with sand every five to 10 years, for a cost of $2 million. Blundon said if nothing is done to prevent erosion of the peninsula, it will turn into barrier islands over time, making travel on it impossible. The dune is only part of the solution. “It’s the natural cycle,” he said. “A healthy dune will slow (erosion) down, but it won’t stop it.”

Thrifty co-founder Alex Campbell passes away He was a man who in his retirement gave more of himself and his accumulated wealth than most people expected. Alex Campbell Sr., co-founder of Thrifty Foods, community booster and philanthropist, passed away early Tuesday morning at age

70, after a lengthy illness. Victoria-born Campbell worked to help various charities on the Island after retiring from the grocery business, both in a leadership role and as a face for fundraising efforts. Campbell contributed more than $2 million in

personal and corporate donations to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation, and gave more in terms of his time. Campbell received numerous awards in the later stages of his career, including the Order of British Columbia in 1999 and a 2011 Leadership Victoria award.

New candidates bring fresh competition to Colwood council Sam Van Schie News staff

Three more Colwood council hopefuls have announced their intention to run in the November municipal election. Current Coun. and Solar Colwood champion Judith Cullington will seek a second term. A small business owner and 17-year resident of Colwood, Cullington spent the past three years as chair of the transportation and public infrastructure committee and sat on several other municipal and Capital Regional District committees. She spearheaded the Solar Colwood initiative, securing government grants to reduce the cost to residents retrofitting their homes with solar hot water and other energy-saving devices. “I would like the opportunity to carry on the work that I have started,” Cullington said. “I want to continue to build strong and productive relationships with community partners, to build a strong local economy, and to work towards a more sustainable community.” The two other candidates stepping forward are new to the ballot but have both served as volunteer members of council committees. Robert Martin, a member of Colwood's sewage oversight committee, wants to increase his role at the council table. The 13-year resident is concerned about municipal tax increases and the need for new city infrastructure. "Council in 2012 will need vision and strong leadership to help pilot our way through some turbulent times,” Martin said. Shari Lukens, a member of Colwood's planning and land use committee and the mayor’s task force for energy and economic growth, will have her name on the ballot. A national figure skating coach, Lukens says she'll advocate for a review of core municipal services and look for ways to improve civic operations. She also wants to attract new business and development to the city. "I'm prepared to listen, to research and to make decisions that will enable Colwood to be a sustainable and exciting place for families to live, and a destination waterfront community where businesses prosper," she said. These candidates and others will have a chance to voice their issues at an all-candidate meeting Wednesday, Nov. 2 at the Church of the Advent, 510 Mount View Ave. news@goldstreamgazette.com

For those who are losing the last of their natural teeth we can prepare a denture ahead of time so they will never have to go without a smile. With many clients coming in from Sooke for their services, Boos knew the time was right to expand services to that community. Come mid-November, Westshore Denture Clinic will open a second location at 6689B Sooke Road, at the corner of Otter Point Road, in the Academy Dental offices. “The Sooke region is growing quickly therefore we’re going out there to meet a need in the community,” Boos says, noting that prebookings for November are available through, 778-425-2255.

TOWN OF VIEW ROYAL NOTICE TAX EXEMPTION BYLAW (COMMUNITY HALLS) NO. 814 Take notice that the Council of the Town of View Royal intends to adopt Tax Exemption Bylaw No. 814, 2011 under the authority of section 224 of the Community Charter.

Peter Tennant and Vern Walker show their bald heads in front of Langford Rona. The store raised more than $20,000 for Tennant’s cancer treatment.

The purpose of the bylaw is to exempt the non-profit organization listed below from a portion of the property taxes imposed under section 197(1)(a) of the Community Charter for the year 2012 to the year 2022, inclusive. Organization Name and Property Description

Rona raises $20k for colleague Sam Van Schie News staff

Bald heads are everywhere at Langford Rona. Last Friday, 20 employees shaved their heads in support of their colleague Peter Tennant who is battling leukemia and needs a stem cell transplant from his sister, who lives in South Africa. The Langford store and other Rona locations on Vancouver Island raised more than $20,000 in two months for medical and travel expenses to help Tennant — over twice what they’d

hoped to bring in. And the fundraising continues. “This is the biggest fundraiser we’ve ever held at the store,” said Debra Downton, who coorganized the effort with Vern Walker, both of whom work at Langford Rona. “We’re always fundraising at the store, but usually it’s for outside charities,” Walker added. “When one of our own needs help, we really pull together.” This week the Langford store has a silent auction of art donated by creative employees, and donation buckets at tills are

still available to chip in. Tennant, who began sick leave at the end of September, had his head shaved along with his co-workers. Some men also had their beard shaved. “This whole thing has completely blown me away,” he said. “I’ll be forever grateful for what they’ve done. I’m looking forward to getting back to work here when I’m better.” Tennant’s sister will fly into Vancouver and the two will undergo the procedure for the transplant later this month. Tennant could be off work for up to a year afterward.

Sewage funding yet to materialize Sam Van Schie News staff

The Capital Regional District may need an extension on building its sewage treatment plant, with the province yet to give a firm funding commitment. In 2006 the province gave the

region 10 years to establish secondary sewage treatment, ending the current practice of pumping liquid waste into the ocean. Then-premier Gordon Campbell said his government would fund one-third of the cost. The deal has yet to be put in writing. “It’s going to be impossible to

meet the current deadline,” said Denise Blackwell, a Langford councillor who chairs of the CRD sewage treatment committee. “It’s a frustration for sure. We’ve had no indication on when they’ll come forward with the funding.” Ida Chong, minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, said the project is currently being reviewed by the treasury board. “This is a large project and unfortunately it does take this long to go through,” Chong said. “We need to know exactly how we are going to roll it out, and over how many fiscal years, before any funding announcement.” Blackwell said it’s hard to know how a delay would impact the overall project cost, estimated at $782-million. But if the province delays too long, Blackwell said a secured federal grant could expire. “Our biggest question right now is: when? When will we get the funding? When can we move forward?” Blackwell said. Chong wouldn’t speculate on the answers: “Even I don’t know that.”

Before Millstream Meadows can be sold, the CRD will apply for a certificate of compliance from the B.C. Ministry of Environment to deem the site safe for use. Millstream Meadows was a regional dump for septage, sewage and solid waste from the 1940s until closing in 1984. After a severe winter, diesel was detected in monitoring wells at the edge of the property in April 2007, indicating contaminants were migrating out, potentially into groundwater used for residential consumption. In November 2007, the CRD went as far as distributing bottled water to nearby Highlands households, and then fast-tracked the cleanup.

Royal Roads university has a few new artifacts from its days as a military college on display. A mace, which symbolized the school’s authority to grant degrees during convocation ceremonies, and a replica of a plaque quoting ViceAdmiral Lord Horatio Nelson have found a new home in the foyer of the Grant Building. Both items, along with the HMCS Royal Roads navy bell and the Queen’s Colours flag which were put on display at this time last year, are on long-term loan from the Esquimalt Naval & Military Museum. They’ll remain at Royal Roads for years to come. David Bindernagel of the Royal Roads military heritage committee said he’s pleased with the growing collection. “We hope to keep doing this, bringing something new each year,” Bindernagel said. “It’s important to remember the school’s history.” The artifacts were presented to the university at the annual homecoming celebration in September, a reunion attended by some 300 formercadets who’d attended Royal

RRMC held its first convocation ceremony in 1977, the same year the mace was presented to the school. Weighing about 20 pounds, the mace features four coat of arms — one for each incarnation of the school prior to it becoming a military college. RRU senior foundation officer Paul Longtin said the school is considering using

the military college mace alongside one held by the university at future convocation ceremonies. Both would be carried to the stage and would be displayed while students are given their degrees. “Using both together, it would show the long standing educational history in this building,” Longtin said, noting that many staff at Royal Roads are the same from its military days. “We really treasure our history and need find ways to honour it.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

OUR VIEW

Something stinks with sewage funding

I

t seems a little hypocritical to tell the Capital Regional District it must begin treating its sewage with a near-billion-dollar project, then backtrack on a commitment to pay for one third of it. That’s what the province appears to be doing, as we now hear its contribution is contingent on Ottawa being the first to show us the money. And as the CRD passes the five-year mark since studies began on implementation of sewage treatment, why hasn’t funding been committed to the project by the senior levels of government? The regional district has already invested a huge amount of taxpayer dollars, abiding by what the province asked of it. The feasibility of building a facility has been investigated, a thorough plan was created and McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt was selected as the future home of a treatment plant. While all three levels of government are expected to pay an even share of the cost, it seems that only one level is walking the walk and trying to move forward on the project. The cost of upgrading or building a component of infrastructure rises the longer it is dragged out. But the foot-dragging in this case is being done by the senior levels of government. If the B.C. Liberal and Conservative governments are waiting on each other to act before progress can be made, it looks like sewage treatment won’t be here anytime soon. But if either level is actually committed to this project, discussions need to begin to allow the CRD to move ahead on this regionally significant project. The promise to work together with the federal government and the CRD to make the project happen — made by then-premier Gordon Campbell in 2006 — hasn’t been kept, and is hindering progress. The CRD shouldn’t spend a dime more on such an expensive project until it gets assurances that regional taxpayers won’t be left holding the bag on sewage treatment. What do you think?

Perhaps that’s what a group of perplexed tourists from Delaware thought when they were awakened by our morning warm-up with music and sirens blaring in the motel parking lot in Port McNeil. How would I describe the tour? It’s an 1,100-kilometre high-output and, at times, physically gruelling bike ride that collects money to fight cancer and send children with cancer to Camp Goodtimes. But anyone fortunate enough to ride with the tour knows it’s impossible to fully describe what it really is or means other than to say it’s the most rewarding two weeks they will likely ever experience. One thing for certain, there’s nothing quite like the Tour de Rock. Its life, energy and response from the public comes from and, I believe, is unique to Vancouver Island. And the tour changes everyone who takes part in it. photos@nanaimobulletin.com —Chris Bush writes for the Nanaimo News Bulletin.

LETTERS Too many problems with smart meters

Colwood should vote in Langford council

Re: Dumb leaders attack smart meters, B.C. Views, Oct. 7, 2011. I am amazed that Black Press newspapers allow anyone to get space as an editorial to write false accusations, misinformation and biased statements. Tom Fletcher is demeaning honest councillors and mayors who listened to their constituents, considered the information given them and decided at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference to vote to ask the province for a moratorium on smart meters. Calling them ignorant and fearful just shows how out of touch Fletcher is, or rather how in touch with the B.C. Liberal party he is. The problems with the smart meter program are many: 1) the meters emit a 2b carcinogen, the same classification as DDT and lead. If I can’t put DDT on my lawn why is Hydro allowed to put this on my home? Fletcher has no understanding of the health risks. 2) The chips in the meters will gather personal information not needed for billing which until now has only been provided with a court order. In the U.S. this information has been sold. In addition, wireless technology is easily hacked. This is an invasion of privacy not allowed under our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. 3) Everywhere smart meters have been installed monthly utility bills have increased drastically — 80 per cent and more. 4) Inexperienced people with only two weeks training are doing what an electrician should be doing, resulting in damages to homes and appliances. Hydro and Corix are not accepting responsibility. 5) No democratic choice — everyone is being forced to have one despite legitimate concerns. 6) No energy savings will be realized — they haven’t anywhere else. To this, Energy Minister Rich Coleman and Premier Christy Clark say they don’t share our concerns. I say they should. Fletcher should stop being allowed to present himself as a reporter when he is, in fact, the government’s mouthpiece. Sharon Noble Colwood

At a time when Colwood is poorer than poor and barely treading financial water I was shocked to learn that our fair city went on a hiring binge increasing salaries that we have to pay by $500,000 each year — positions like deputy engineer, deputy finance director, deputy fire chief. What’s with all the new “deputy” positions? The two declared individuals running for mayor of Colwood have failed to address this situation with an action plan. For direction, they need look no farther than our successful neighbour Langford. Their mayor has had a consistent vision and an action plan to make things happen. Anyone living in Langford can run for political office in Colwood. Therefore, we need to convince one of their successful councillors, someone like Lillian Szpak, to run for mayor of Colwood. This makes perfect sense as she is part of the team that put Langford on the map. She would get rid of the high-paid administrative extras at Colwood city hall and significantly reduce red tape in Colwood. Currently, it takes 18 months to get a straight-forward commercial building permit in Colwood and only three months in Langford. Getting a building permit in Colwood should be called the “Colwood Crawl.” Colwood also needs to change its tax base by adding significantly more commercial development — a Langford speciality. Why are we constantly trying to reinvent the wheel in Colwood when we have specialists next door in Langford who can show us how to get the job done? Bring in a hired gun for mayor. John Townson Colwood

Drip. Drip. Drip.

Hydro hides reason for smart meters I am wondering if anyone is as dizzy as I am, from all the spin being put on the smart meter issue by BC Hydro and other vested interests. A few examples: Hydro literature boasts about creating up to 300 new jobs, but fails to mention the inconve-

There’s still a life nient reality of the far greater number of jobs lost through this automation program. They tell us that “everybody” is making the change to smart meters. This is the “monkey see-monkey do” argument. Hydro is already touting “savings” of at least $30 to $40 million in the first two years of the program. However, even if true, this would mean the meters would “pay for themselves” in a mere 50 or 60 years — assuming, of course, that there was no interest charged on the original $930 million required to implement the project. A major issue not receiving nearly enough attention is security. Hydro assures us that nobody will ever be able to tell which appliance you are using at a given time. What does concern the truly professional thief is patterns of usage; particularly periods of very low consumption which would indicate a family is away, perhaps on vacation, making the home an ideal candidate for a break-and-enter. Any claims or promises by Hydro that signals so cavalierly broadcast in open air cannot possibly be intercepted and hacked by techno-savvy crooks are of course specious.

LETTERS Continued from Page A9

In an era when an English teenager is able to successfully hack insanely protected United States government computer systems, and we are warned about special card readers that can pick up private information from your credit card chip, just by passing very close to you on the street, any claim that any openly broadcast signal is “secure”

cannot possibly be seriously considered. BC Hydro understandably is saying as little as possible about the real centerpiece of the smart meter program: differential power rates. Hydro intends to charge premium usage rates for power consumed at times when you most need it. This is why, despite vague nonsense about “saving money,” most users in systems now fully imple-

mented find their bills go up significantly. Of course, you have the alternative of cold cuts and cold showers, but how smart meters facilitates that “choice,” which is what they claim, is beyond me. Nobody in their right mind

would argue against spending money on our electrical infrastructure, to do everything in our power to make it as safe and reliable as possible. However, to tout the smart meters as “an essential part of our hydro infrastructure” is an egregious abuse of the

term. They are not infrastructure; they are nothing but an obscenely expensive bill collecting device, and to spend almost a billion dollars just to make it easier for Hydro to collect money from us is an outrage. Dave Conrad Langford

Victoria’s Johnson St. Bridge costs rise and fall Roszan Holmen News staff

The good news is that the liftable span of new Johnson Street Bridge can be shorter, and therefore cheaper than originally budgeted. Less soil contamination than anticipated will also bring savings. The bad news? Dealing with the Telus line under the bridge has proven more complex and costly than first estimated. Victoria’s bridge team came to city council last week with these findings as part of its quarterly status update on the $77-million replacement project. So will the costs and savings balance each other out? At this point, there’s no answer — except that any net overruns will be taken out of the 15 per cent contingency fund. Here’s what we know so far: • Telus line relocation: The one-metre-wide duct services all Victoria West, Esquimalt and the Department of National Defence, and runs directly underneath the bridge. The line likely carries sensitive information to CFB Esquimalt, said Joost Meyboom of MMM Group, the engineering company overseeing the project. “During construction, if you were to hit that duct, it would be a very expensive mistake. Most insurance companies won’t cover it.” The new plan is to relocate the entire line instead of just a small portion of it, bringing the cost from $1.3 million to $2.4 million. The job will take one year. • Liftable span length: Currently, when a ship travels under the Johnson Street Bridge, a span 39 metres in length rises to allow the passage. An early study to replace the bridge determined the channel should be extended to 47 metres. Consultation with the Upper Harbour users, however, concludes 41 metres will serve both the present and future needs of the marine industry. The six-metre reduction in scope will create less strain on the bridge mechanics over time, and

cost less to build. Next, MMM Group will analyze the cost savings involved.

• Soil contamination: While a multi-year cleanup effort of nearby Rock Bay has been

dogged by worse contamination than expected, the opposite finding on the west

approach to the bridge promises significant savings. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

William Head actors break out of ‘same-old’ mould Latest production kicks off tonight on the prison stage Sam Van Schie News staff

In an isolated old castle where nothing changes, a young man longs to break free from the tired structure. It’s a situation inmates-turnedactors at William Head Institution can surely relate to as they get into character for their production of Gormenghast, opening tonight at the penitentiary. The fantasy classic, based on a trilogy of novels by Mervyn Peake and adapted for stage by John Constable, follows Titus Groan, a young king who secretly wants to leave Gormenghast castle, and a kitchen boy named Steerpike, who would gladly overthrow him. Intrepid Theatre’s Ian Case is directing the cast of nine inmates and three local actresses. He’d been holding onto a copy of the script, which a co-worker found for him in a bargain bin, eager for

a chance to use it. “The guys got right into it. We did casting and they got their lines in August, and when we started rehearsals in September they were completely off book,” said Case, who in previous years directed Elephant Man, Macbeth and Waiting for Godot at the prison. Ingrid Hansen directed and acted in CHALK at William Head last year and returns to the prison stage in the role of Fuchsia Groan, Titus’s wild sister and Steerpike’s lover. “I kept telling the guys they’re making us (actresses) look bad because we were still reading off the page and we’re supposed to be the professionals,” Hansen laughed. Indeed, the William Head on Stage theatre company has much to boast about. Run completely by inmates, it’s in its 30th year and on its 50th production – the company used to put on shows twice a year, back when offenders were bused downtown for performances. Still, the group runs without the support of any grants or external funding. The company relies on

Ingrid Hansen, as Fuschia, reacts in a scene from Gormenghast, as a Willam Head on Stage inmate performer cavorts with skeletons. The play opens tonight (Oct. 14) at the prison in Metchosin. its box office sales to fund future productions. Case says theatre fits well with the prison’s role of rehabilitating offenders to function in society.

“It teaches them to work together and trust each other,” he said. “It’s inspiring to see how they do that throughout the course of rehearsals.”

Hansen, who keeps in touch with some of last year’s actors who have since been released, said she was told by one man that before acting, he never thought he could be good at anything besides crime. “When people come up to them after the show and tell them they did a great job night after night, they slowly start to believe it, and their barriers come down,” Hansen said. Gormenghast opens tonight with a 7:30 p.m. show. Subsequent performances are Fridays and Saturdays through Nov. 12, with Thursday shows Nov. 3 and 10 at William Head Institution, 6000 William Head Rd. in Metchosin. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance at My Chosen Cafe, 4480 Happy Valley Rd., online through www.ticketrocket. org or by phone at 250-383-2663. Patrons must be 19 or over and must pass through a security check. The gates open 6 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. show. No latecomers will be admitted. news@goldstreamgazette.com

Author Hodgins, illustrator Bridgeman capture book prizes The Master of Happy Endings, Uirapuru lauded by jurors A Victoria-area man’s tale of a widower’s quest to quell his malaise has earned the author this year’s Butler Book Prize. Jack Hodgins’ novel The Master of Happy Endings was acclaimed by the prize’s jurors as “an exuberant novel about the power of narrative to serve as a compass for human odysseys. “Hodgins’ story is as much about the terrain of the heart and spirit as it is about the phys-

ical world, and he moves confidently from one to the other, his literary skill in service to his rich imagination.” Also honoured during a gala ceremony Wednesday night at the Union Club of British Columbia was illustrator Kristi Bridgeman of Saanich, who won the Bolen Books Children’s Book Prize, for her artistic interpretation of the late P.K. Page’s book, Uirapuru. “Kristi Bridgeman’s extraordinary accomplishment in Uirapuru is to tell a story with illustrations so richly layered and complex, so warm with colour, humour and detail so as to draw the reader back into its haunt-

The other four finalists for the Butler prize included Carla Funk, Stephen Hume, Sylvia Olsen and John Schreiber. Sarah N.

Vic Marathon: the big picture

SPORTS NEWS

Despite Toronto’s major cash prizes, Victoria still matters

Belmont sports roundup

IN BRIEF

Travis Paterson News staff

Runners of all ages and levels capitalized on the perfect conditions of the 2011 GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon on Sunday with a pair of elites netting serious cash. Kenyan Thomas Omwenga led the day with a first-place time of two hours, 14 minutes and 33 seconds, breaking Steve Osaduik’s 2006 record of 2:16:49. Omwenga pulled away with $7,000 in prize money, making it well worth his trip. Were he Canadian he would’ve scored a course record bonus of $5,000 more. As it is, Omwenga won $4,000 for finishing under two hours and 15 minutes and $3,000 for being first overall. Lucy Njeri also banked $3,000 for first plus a $3,000 incentive for running under 2:38, but also missed out on the Canadian bonus for breaking the 1989 course record held by Val Chowaniek. That we’re seeing course records fall is part of an upswing in Canadian marathon running right now, said Brent Fougner, coach of the University of Victoria Vikes cross country and track running teams. Omwenga, for example, owns a marathon best of 2:10:44. Victoria was his second marathon in two weeks, having finished second at the Montréal Oasis Marathon on Sept. 26 with a nearly-identical time of a 2:14:35. “You have to think he’s capable of going a bit faster,” Fougner said, of Omwenga’s quick turnaround. Despite acting as the B.C. championship (with local Ryan Day taking that honour in third place, 2:26:42), the Victoria marathon is known as a destination event for runners and is over-

shadowed on the national scene by this weekend’s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. “(Victoria’s) is a beautiful course and there’s always some quality athletes so people can witness a top runner, even if its not their top time,” Fougner said. “(But Victoria) hasn’t attracted our top Canadians because you can only do so many in a year

and the STWM has gone after top Canadians and internationals, making sure its a fast race.” Buzz around Toronto this week is of taking down Jerome Drayton’s Canadian marathon record of 2:10:09, which he set in Japan in 1975. At $36,000, the prize to do so is considerable. Organizers of the STWM have put up $1,000 for every year the record has stood. One of the runners who could do it is Vancouver’s Dylan Wykes, who warmed up by winning last month’s McNeill Bay Half Marathon in Oak Bay. Runners also prefer Toronto’s flat course to the inclines of Victoria. Weather conditions were perfect on Sunday, however, helping Port Moody’s Natasha Wodak join Owmena and Njeri in the money group by setting the women’s half-marathon course record. Wodak won an extra $1,000 on top of the $1,000 half-marathon prize when she broke Marilyn Arsenault’s 2009 course record

Belmont junior varsity football made history after playing its first AAA league game in Vancouver versus New Westminster. Unfortunately the boys came up a bit short and lost 21-8 but they had chances to defeat the Mainland team. Bulldogs JV play Notre Dame this week in Vancouver and is looking for its first victory in AAA. Belmont varsity football defeated Vanier last Friday night 11-10. It was a low scoring game but with plenty of offense with a huge passing attack from the Bulldogs and a tough grinding run game. This was the varsity team’s first league game and victory of the season. Bulldogs varsity play district rivals Edward Milne from Sooke Friday 3 p.m. at Bear Mountain stadium.

Senior girls volleyball: Senior girls stand at an impressive 10-2 in league play after defeating Spectrum and Glenlyon Norfolk last week, and losing a close match to Lambrick Park. At last weekend’s Camosun tournament the girls had an overall 3-2 record and won the consolation final against St. Michael’s University School to finish ninth out of 20 teams. Junior girls volleyball: Belmont junior girls opened league play with straight set wins over Spencer and St. Andrew’s. Senior boys volleyball: Senior boys beat Spectrum and Pacific Christian School, and lost to Oak Bay. In the Malaspina tournament the boys beat Woodlands, and lost to Reynolds in two and Gulf Islands in three. They lost in playoffs to Claremont.

by 12 seconds, 1:15:27. Arsenault finished third in the half (1:18:03) and was the top masters’ runner in that event with another former Vike, Craig Odermatt, who was fifth overall (1:10:43).

Royals jerseys, Rockets hit Victoria this week

The Victoria Royals open a two-game set with the Kelowna Rockets tonight (Oct. 14) and Saturday, 7:05 p.m. at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. This week also marks the release of Royals’ official replica hockey jerseys for purchase. Jerseys go on sale prior to tonight’s matchup beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Royals’ Court merchandise store at Gate 1. Youth ($90) and adult size ($115) jerseys are available in both the road white and home blue colours. The Royals are coming off a rough weekend having lost three of four. During the stint the Royals were victimized by last week’s CHL player of the week Emerson Etem, who led the Medicine Hat Tigers with five goals during the Tigers’ two game visit to Victoria, Oct. 6 and 7. Etem, an Anaheim Ducks prospect from Long Beach, Calif., added another goal on Oct. 8 as the Tigers beat the Vancouver Giants, 5-4. The Royals are third in the B.C. Division with four wins in nine games.

Cameron Lawson

June 29, 1941 – Oct 3, 2011

Surrounded by his loving family, Cam slipped into eternal rest following a valiant battle with cancer. Cam is survived by his wife Patricia, daughters Kathleen (Brad), Lori (Cliff), Colleen (Marty), Karen(Steven) & Rob; six Island kids – Cleo (Guy), Glenn (Anya), Monte (Debbie), Hope (Dave), Shawn(Sandra), Patrick; 21 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren and sister Jay (Lance). He was predeceased by his mother, Margaret, father, Harold; brothers Barry, Teddy and son, Ross. Born in Cornwall, Ontario, Cam moved British Columbia in 1968 where he resided in the Lower Mainland & Fraser Valley areas. He relocated to Victoria in the mid ‘70’s where he remained until his death. Cam served several years in the Canadian Armed Forces, a member of the Black Watch where he proudly served the Queen Mother at a formal dinner in Montreal in 1962. When he retired from his military career, Cam spent the remainder of his working life in Food Services for the Dept of National Defense in Victoria. He was a long time member and stellar player at the Victoria Horseshoe Club. He also held memberships with the Black Watch Association and the Royal Canadian Legion #91. A celebration of Cam’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion on Station Road in Langford on October 22, from 2-4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Victoria Hospice Society for their compassionate and loving palliative care. Rest in eternal peacehusband, father, grandfather and friend.

Sardul Gill makes $5M donation to UVic Erin Cardone News staff

A large financial gift to the University of Victoria’s business school last week marked a list of milestones. Not only was Sardul S. Gill’s $5-million donation the largest-ever gift to a UVic graduate program and the largest-ever gift from an alumnus to the university, it might also be the greatest to any Canadian university from a person of South Asian descent, according to UVic. “Mr. Gill’s generous donation will do a great deal to strengthen graduate level business education and allow us to reward outstanding academic achievement and foster excellence in teaching,”

says UVic president David Turpin. The money will be used to set up a permanent endowment fund that will fuel scholarships and financial awards, as well as international projects, teaching and research. In return, the graduate business program at UVic will be renamed the Sardul S. Gill Graduate School — another first. No similar Canadian institution has been named after a Sikh Indian philanthropist. Gill, who declined interviews, said in a statement: “I made this gift to honour my parents. My father immigrated to “My parents Canada from the Punjab 1906. He laboured were staunch all his life and encourbelievers in aged me to pursue my education at a education, and now time when there were I want to honour significant barriers to people of Indian them ...” descent in this coun–Sardul Gill try.” As real estate investor paid his own way through higher education, Gill worked in some of the same saw mills on the Island that his father did. After graduating from Victoria High school, Gill attended Victoria College — UVic’s former incarnation — then received his commerce degree from the University of British Columbia. “I owe the fact that I got this far to my parents,” said Gill, who now lives in the Cedar Hill area of Saanich. “My parents were staunch believers in education, and now I want to honour them, and the value they placed on higher education by giving something back to the institution that gave me a start in life. “My greatest hope is that this gift inspires others to give back to their own communities — perhaps just as my father and mother inspired me.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com
