At least two in the running for Colwood mayor Four-way election race possible Sam Van Schie News staff

Sangster elementary school students Ben Woodman, 9, (front) and (left to right) Ella Woodman, 6, Maggie Fehr, 8, and Alex Arnott, 8, want people to donate scrap metal the PAC fundraiser.

School fundraising gets creative Sangster kids seek scrap metal Charla Huber News staff

Sangster elementary school wants your metal, any metal. The parent advisory committee is hosting a fundraiser for the school and it’s collecting any and all scrap metal, including old household appliances. The school plans to sell the metal to Steel Pacific Recycling for a rate greater than market value for the materials. “We will take anything a magnet

will stick to,” said Sean Kay, marketing representative from Steel Pacific Recycling. The items donated can be anything from old dishwashers, car rims, bicycles and even Christmas light strings, without the bulbs. Sue Fehr, PAC fundraiser, said even donations of nuts and bolts can really add up in weight. The PAC will be paid per metric tonne. “Other places you have to pay to get rid of this stuff, but here it’s free,” Fehr said. “People could even donate an old car.” The PAC will use the money to help fund school field trips, library books and sports gear. “People should donate so we

can get money for library books and field trips,” said student Maggie Fehr, 8, who enjoys going on field trips to the pool. On Oct. 1 and 2 a large bin will be at the school at 3325 Metchosin Rd., where people can drop of metal appliances. Items can also be arranged for pick up throughout the West Shore. For more information or to schedule material pick up call Fehr at 250-721-3569. Items can also be dropped off at Steel Pacific Recycling, 307 David St., and entered under the account Sangster elementary school, until Oct. 15.

A current and a former Colwood councillor have confirmed they'll run for the mayor's seat in November, while two others are on the fence. Coun. Brian Tucknott and former councillor Carol Hamilton announced this week they will vie for the top job. Current mayor Dave Saunders announced earlier this summer that he won’t see re-election after one term at the helm, citing a desire to spend more time with his family. Hamilton ran against Saunders in the 2008 election, when they were both single term councillors. She was defeated by 300 votes. Tucknott said if he's elected mayor, there will be no municipal tax increases during his term. “Municipal tax has gone up 30 per cent in the last three years, which is concerning to me,” he said. “It's something that can't continue." In 2009 and 2010 taxes spiked in the municipality after Royal Bay industrial lands were reclassified to commercial-residential and RCMP costs shot up, creating a $1.6 million hole in Colwood’s budget. Hamilton is also concerned about large tax increases, but

said she isn't one for campaign promises. "They're just empty words," she said. "I don't think people are opposed to taxes if they can see their money is being spent responsibly." One thing she could commit to is a long-term commitment to her role as mayor. She said she's interested in serving successive terms. "It's hard for a City to change leaders frequently," she said. "What Colwood needs is stability and consistency that the neighbouring communities have from long-serving mayors." Coun. Judith Cullington knows she wants to continue representing Colwood and is debating between running for mayor or for a second term as councillor. Former councillor Jason Nault, who retired his position last election, may also put his name forward for mayor. The only councillor who has confirmed he'll run again is Ernie Robertson, Colwood's longest serving current councillor, who will seek a sixth term. Coun. Shaun Wysiecki confirmed he won't run for a second term, as he wants to focus on his career at Coast Capital Savings. Cynthia Day and Gordie Logan, both veteran councillors, haven't yet revealed their intentions for the Nov. 19 election. Candidates have until Oct. 14 to submit their nomination papers.

Sweet donations for Savory students Charla Huber News staff

The fire that swept through part of Savory elementary has left school supplies layered in soot and off limits to kids, but the community has stepped up to replace what was lost. Langford Fire Rescue has ordered the school district not to allow children to use any personal school supplies left in desks or lockers, said Jim Cambridge, SD 62 superintendent. “Even though some items looked like they could be wiped down, like pencils, books and paper, unless they are professionally cleaned we can’t use them,” Cambridge said. When word came in that the 155 students would need brand new supplies, Monk Office Supply decided to help out. On Monday afternoon a Monk truck arrived at the Sooke School District office with dozens of boxes of supplies for each student in the school — pens, pencils, crayons, books, rulers, binders, paper and more. The donation is worth about $5,500. “This is absolutely fantastic. (We are grateful to) all the people have helped and donated school supplies,” Cambridge said. “Monks has outfitted every stu-

He expected parents would have to buy supplies just

a few weeks after stocking up for the new school year. “It’s quite overwhelming and it’s astounding at how people want to help in this situation,”

Benker said. “It’s been so stressful for the the children and their parents.” The Sept. 11 fire destroyed the administrative offices of

the school. Two Langford teenagers have been arrested and charged with arson. The cleanup is expected to take a few more weeks. James Mckenzie, president of Monk Office Supply said that saving a few pens and pencils is not worth the risk of kids ingesting toxic soot. “With the little ones, every pencil goes in their mouths,” Mckenzie said. “It was just a shame especially at the beginning of the school year when the kids come to school with all their supplies.” All items in the school, except school supplies purchased by parents, will be professionally cleaned before children go back to classrooms at Savory. Kids’ personal school supplies are not cleaned because they are not insured by the district, Cambridge said. Other local businesses and groups have offered the small elementary school a helping hand as well. Staples donated $1,500 in gift cards and is offering a 15 per cent discount for all Savory students and teachers. Grand & Toy donated school bags and backpacks. George Jay and Willway elementary schools offered up donations, as well as many individual donors.

Driven RRU student leaves a transit legacy Edward Hill News staff

Lindsey Poepping came to Royal Roads University to finish her degree in communications, but managed to leave behind a legacy of affordable transit for students. BC Transit opened its U-Pass program to Royal Roads students in August, barely six months after Poepping made a phone call to transit CEO Manuel Achadinha. “I called up Manuel and asked what do we need to do to get the U-Pass?” said the 23-year-old president of the RRU Student Association. “I said we’ve got the students, you’ve got the buses. Let’s set something up.” The student association quickly organized a referendum in the spring asking if students would be willing to fund a U-Pass — 83 per cent gave it a thumbs up. The first undergraduate cohort in August had $250 tacked to their fees for the full year of bus passes. Twelve months of bus passes for post-secondary would normally cost about $900. “Without Lindsey this wouldn’t have happened. Royal Roads implemented the U-Pass with lightning speed,” Achadinha said during a U-Pass kickoff ceremony last week at RRU. “This is the quickest U-Pass program we’ve ever implemented. That says a lot for this institution.”

Edward Hill/News staff

Royal Roads student association president Lindsey Poepping kick-started the university’s bid for a U-Pass into gear in March. By August RRU undergrads were in the program. The U-Pass at Royal Roads was likely inevitable as it expands undergraduate programs that draw students from other institutions, such as the University of Victoria and Camosun. Poepping said she was used

to having a U-Pass when she attended UVic, a common sentiment from RRU undergrads completing third and fourth year. One student sent in a letter asking for a U-Pass earlier this year, and the ball started rolling from there.

“Most of the undergraduates come from other institutions, and the majority have a U-Pass. Once you have it, it’s hard to give up,” Poepping said. “Once we got that one letter, we we started asking around and hearing a lot more

grumbling from students.” Students got their U-Pass, but RRU isn’t exactly a transit hub. The No. 39 Royal Roads is the only bus that enters the campus and the No. 52 Wishart community bus rolls along Sooke Road. RRU vice-president Steve Grundy admits it’s a catch-22 — students won’t use a U-Pass without a high level of service, but BC Transit won’t provide service without demand. On the other hand, the university has to find ways to chip away at 93 per cent of its students accessing the campus via a single occupancy vehicle. “We need a critical mass of students. The tricky part is about demand and service,” Grundy said. “Fortunately the students went for the U-Pass program. We’re hoping over time BC Transit will improve service for the campus.” The RRU U-Pass program will benefit a few hundred students now, and will grow as the university expands longer residency programs. Achadinha said BC Transit tracks usage and ridership closely. UVic and Camosun tripled student ridership after bringing in the U-Pass. “Every institution does the same. It really takes off,” he said. “And from a student point of view, they don’t have to worry about a car. These bus passes really help students financially.”

Bilston group buffers reclaimed creek Edward Hill News staff

A creek in Langford once packed with the leftover rubble of a highway project will get the finishing touches of a restored ecosystem on Sunday. Bilston Watershed Habitat Protection Association volunteers plan to plant trees and shrubs alongside Martin brook, capping off a multi-year project to rehabilitate the fish-bearing stream. “We are happy to have people come out and help out, and to see the project, to see an area that at one time looked pretty sad,” said Ian McKenzie, a volunteer with the Bilston protection association. “This is helping to recreate the whole ecosystem.” Martin brook, accessible from Woodruff Road, runs along Highway 14 (Sooke Road) near the four-lane stretch in the western edge of Langford. The stream flows into nearby Bilston Creek. The Bilston association dug out the channel about a decade ago, after the Ministry of Transportation used the area as a rock quarry and storage area during the project to widen the highway to four lanes. “The (ministry) built a trench so water could run away, and then left,” McKenzie said. “It wasn’t very good and there really wasn’t any place for fish.” Bilston members repaired the dam of a holding pond and built a series of channels and pools, complete with spawning gravel and logs to provide cover. The Ministry of Transportation again used the area to deposit rock after

Volunteer Ian McKenzie plans to plant western maples among other trees alongside Martin brook, a fish-bearing tributary to Bilston Creek. upgrading Sooke Road at the bend near Slegg Lumber this year. McKenzie noted that this time a government biologist worked with the Bilston association to protect the stream. The ministry even funded the purchase of trees for this weekend’s planting effort. Earlier this year the Bilston group dumped off truckloads of soil in preparation for the last phase of the Martin brook enhancement project. “Highways is doing things correctly this time,” he said. “They are a lot more aware of doing things without damaging

(ecosystems) now.” The group has never stocked the Bilston system with fish, but Martin brook is home to cutthroat trout. Members of Langford Lakes and Area Protection Society and Habitat Acquisition Trust are lending a hand to plant firs, pines, willows, alder and dogwoods, as well as dozens of shrubs and native plants. Anyone who wants to volunteer to help can show up at Woodruff Road on Sept. 25, 10 a.m. See www.bilstoncreek. org for more information.

Small appliance recycling starts Oct. 1 Charla Huber News staff

Getting rid of a blender, toaster or vacuum has never been so easy. Starting Oct.1, a province-wide program called Unplugged will enable B.C. residents to recycle small appliances at more than 100 locations. At the same time, a fee is being added to the purchase price of small appliances to fund the program.

Unplugged was created to keep the two million small appliances discarded each year out of B.C. landfills, said Mark Kurschner, president of the Product Care Association, a non-profit industry association that manages the program. Dropping off the items is free. All the collected items will be taken apart and sorted into groups such as plastic, glass and metal. The fee pays for transporting and disassembling the items. Metals are melted down and recycled

into other metal products, while plastics and glass are sorted and sold or reused in various manufacturing processes. “People can just take (small appliances) in and drop them off,” Kurschner said. Recycling fees on new items vary from $0.25 for an air freshener up to $10 for a large microwave. For household items such as blenders, coffee makers and bathroom scales, the fee is around $2. “Of the people we polled well over 90 per cent of them think it’s a good idea (to

West Shore chamber awards next week

Woodchips ignite patio fire

The West Shore Chamber of Commerce is celebrating its community awards at a celebration at Westin Bear Mountain on Sept. 30. Thirty-eight West Shore individuals and businesses have been nominated in 10 award categories. See for ticket information.

Langford Fire Rescue contained a patio fire from igniting a Weaver Place home Monday morning. Fire broke out about 1:30 a.m. and was called in by a Happy Valley Road neighbour who smelled smoke. The occupant told Langford fire inspectors that hot wood chips from a smoker machine were laid out on a wooden board on the wooden deck after smoking meats. “It was a perfectly square burn hole, it was like a branding iron

Langford fire inspectors want to remind people not to place smoker machines or similar devices on wooden surfaces and to store hot woodchips in a metal bucket soaked in water. “Certainly you want to place a smoker in an area without combustables — on a cement patio away from things that burn,” Aubrey said.

Saanich teenager arrested for home invasion in View Royal Sam Van Schie News staff

Two young men attacked and robbed inside their View Royal townhouse Monday afternoon can take comfort in knowing the first arrest has been made in the case. Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz of the West Shore RCMP confirmed that a 17-year-old Saanich resident was arrested as part of the investigation, and the West Shore detachment is working with Saanich police to find three other suspects. “It helps (the investigation) that this happened in the daylight, in a residential area where there are many poten-

Four young men entered the townhouse in the 1400block of Craigflower Road around 4 p.m. Monday, wearing hoodies and bandanas over their faces. According to a media report, the occupants were bound with duct tape and

assaulted while the house was robbed. Rochlitz wouldn’t confirm details of the home invasion or what was stolen, but confirmed that one of the victims was brought to hospital and treated for minor injuries. “This is an extremely unusual type of occurrence, it’s not something you expect to happen,” Rochlitz said. “The number of young children that live in the area makes it extremely concerning.” Anyone with information in this case can call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or Crimestoppers at 1800-222TIPS.

Library e-readers popular

What will you do with your savings? RATES THAT FIT YOUR NEEDS & YOUR BUDGET 5 YR FIXED

Sam Van Schie News staff

A second batch of e-readers are now in circulation at Greater Victoria libraries. Friends of the Library covered the cost of 28 new Kobo e-readers after the initial 21 it bought for the libraries as a pilot project in February racked up nine-month wait lists. “They’ve been very, very popular,” said Rina Hadziev, technical services co-ordinator for the Greater Victoria Public Library. Initially Kobos were nonreservable and could only be picked up from the loan desks at the Central, Juan de Fuca, and Nellie McClung branches. But in April libraries started offering holds with pick-up available at any branch. The wait lists have been long ever since. It also helps that the library loads the Kobos with popular titles that see highest demand in their print form. “For a lot of people, especially seniors, being able to read recent releases on a tablet means they can control the size of text and don’t have to lug a heavy book around,” Hadziev said. “The e-readers make reading more accessible to more people.”

Besides a some minor, repairable damage to screens, Hadziev said there have been few difficulties with leading out Kobos, which retail for about $150. “We’ve had no theft, no malicious damage, not even many over-dues with the e-readers,” she said. The new batch of Kobos are touch-screen style, which Hadziev said is even more intuitive to use than the original style that have a rubberized pad is used to flip the page.

Victoria fans deserve WHL


et the glorious clang of cowbells begin. Expect the signature sound of junior hockey to deafen Saturday night as the Victoria Royals make their season-debut in front of a home crowd. The sold-out game will be one for the history books. It marks the beginning of the end of a journey that began as soon as Victoria lost its former Western Hockey League club in 1994. The construction of a new Memorial Arena was undertaken with the idea of bringing the WHL back to the city. That deal is done. Soon it will be time for the franchise to prove it is worthy of our long-standing support but for now, anyway, it’s simply time to enjoy the honeymoon. On Saturday, more than 7,000 people will watch the Royals take on their natural rivals, the Vancouver Giants. With 6,000 free cowbells set to be handed out before the game, this moment in history is sure to be loud.

Rugby players making Canada proud The return of the WHL is the milestone moment for this city’s sporting community. But half a world away, another team with deep Island roots is playing what are arguably the most important games of their lives. Canada’s national rugby team includes eight players with connections to Victoria. The team also announced this year that it would be permanently based out of Langford. On Monday (Greater Victoria time), Canada has a chance to earn a berth in the next Rugby World Cup with a victory over Japan. Both teams are considered middle powers in the hierarchy of the sport. The quadrennial competition, which is much more modest to host than either the soccer World Cup or the Olympics, is nonetheless among the most watched events on the planet. A good showing by Canada might start the conversation about whether we’re ready to host the tournament. What do you think? Give us your comments by email: or fax 250-478-6545.

that can really come back to bite you. There hasn’t been much of an anti-Dix effort yet, but you can be sure there is one sitting on the shelf, prepared for Clark’s recently-abandoned fall election plan. The “nasty attacks” Dix complained about were focused on his federal party’s sudden preference for Quebec seats in the House of Commons, and sniping about which Premier Clark hired more political staff — Christy or Glen? And it was the NDP who started the negative cycle with their own TV ad, featuring “Campbell Crunch” and “Christy Crunch” cereals, both “loaded with HST.” (I can put to rest the ghastly rumour that the B.C. Liberal war room will soon unleash a gang of angry, unemployed HST stickmen.) The U.S. tactic of going negative

early, to define your rivals before they can define themselves, has worked spectacularly for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. They scorched federal Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and public distaste for these methods does not seem to have hurt them. The anti-Cummins campaign has a similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto.

His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit. Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy or merely more photo ops. B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning. —Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

LETTERS Smart meters key to a smart grid Re: Smart meters invade privacy, Letters, Aug. 31, 2011. To listen to the misinformation put forth from a small, but very vocal group of smart meter opponents, one might be inclined think the apocalypse will arrive shortly after the installation of these new meters. In her letter to the editor, Lara Allsopp’s contends that “Itron Smart Meters invade people’s personal privacy … the meter’s record and report in five-minute intervals what specific electronic devices are on in your house.” One part of that is true: today’s new meters do measure electricity consumption more frequently and accurately than the once-per-month meter reader of the past. A growing number of utilities today use smart meters to measure consumption on a daily basis, some hourly (as in California and as BC Hydro plans to do), some every 15 minutes (Texas), and yes, the meters are capable of measuring consumption in five-minute increments. However, these new meters do not allow the utility or anyone else to know what specific devices are used in a customers’ home or when. They measure total energy consumption for the residence and transmit that data back to the utility, usually one to three

times a day. More importantly, why is measuring electricity usage more often important to all of us? Think of electricity more fundamentally. It can’t be stored like natural gas, or propane or water. It must be generated in real time, kept in near-perfect balance with fluctuating demand, and delivered over an antiquated delivery system. Yet at the same time, we, as consumers, continue to insist on low cost, reliable power, even as demand in the electronic age increases. All these broadly desired outcomes: greater efficiency, improved reliability, integration of renewables and greater consumer awareness and control of energy use and costs, require a smarter grid, and smart meters are a fundamental building block of that smarter grid. These meters provide the ability to measure energy demand more accurately and in a more timely manner. They provide the ability monitor voltage and power quality over the entire system, while also detecting outages and verifying when power is restored. Most importantly, as energy costs continue to increase, they provide consumers with a source of information to manage power usage and costs more effectively. Itron and the thousands of utilities we serve worldwide are committed to providing consumers with clear and accurate information about our products and sys-

Esquimalt Lagoon has off-leash dog area Re: Dogs need to be leashed in Lagoon, Letters, Sept. 14, 2011. After reading the letter about “dogs needing to be leashed at the lagoon” I feel I need to add a correction. At Esquimalt Lagoon beach, to the west of the bathrooms, is an off-leash dog running area. Colwood bylaw has failed to post this at that end of the side road, as I have called numerous times about it. I have also asked for a garbage can for poop bags near the end of the side street. People need to be aware that the west side of the bathrooms is off-leash and if the people have a problem with dogs running at large, then they need to tour the east side of the bathrooms where dogs are legally supposed to be leashed. Walking dogs at the Lagoon I have also encountered “nasty” dogs that should not be roaming in the off leash dog park. The owners are not aware that the west side of the bathrooms is off-leash and many times that is why there are issues. People with dogs who show any signs of aggression should not be at the off-leash

park, unless they see it is clear of people. Then go for it, exercise your dogs. Peeing on people’s stuff is not acceptable either. As I have noticed being an animal caretaker and running into “nasty” dogs, it’s usually the owners who are just as nasty as the dogs. By nasty I mean aggressive and ill trained. Usually dogs that are running free are nice non aggressive dogs. It’s only a few with irresponsible owners who let the troubled ones go. Please don’t lump all dog owners into one bucket.

Welcome to your Legion! Prince Edward branch welcomes the local community Jenn Blyth The Royal Canadian Legion is well known for its services to veterans in the community. But what can be less well known is its many social offerings for adults of all ages. The evolving nature of today’s Legion represents not only the younger age of veterans and their families, but also a change in membership requirements, explains Patti O’Hara, secretary manager of the West Shore’s Prince Edward Branch. Members no longer have to be a veteran, or directly related to a veteran. Today, all are welcome to join the Legion, after filling out a membership application. Annual dues of just $49 offer a variety of benefits, not the least of which is essentially a very affordable, very welcoming social club. “There’s none of that cliquishness to it,” O’Hara says. “We have different age groups and we are always looking for younger members.” The restaurant at the Prince Edward branch is open for lunch and dinner, offering delicious, affordable, pub-style fare – look for a brand new menu launching Oct. 1. Pool tables are free, along with dart boards and shuffleboard, while seniors are welcome Tuesday and Thursday morning for indoor carpet bowling. Friday night brings jam sessions with entertainment from the local community, and a great opportunity to meet new friends.

Special events are a big part of the Legion calendar. Coming up is a steak night Oct. 7, with music and dinner included for $20, an October sports fundraiser, and a Halloween Dance, for example. Last year also featured the inaugural New Year’s Day Levy, so look for that on the winter calendar. In addition to the many regular activities hosted by the Prince Edward Legion, the branch also has a large hall that’s a popular choice for weddings receptions, private functions and community gatherings. Their catering department – volunteer-run with professional chefs – offers exceptional fare at very affordable prices, O’Hara notes. Even better, profits from the hall rentals, just like memberships and bar proceeds, all go back to the community, helping veteran, senior and youth programs throughout the West Shore. In addition, the Prince Edward branch also operates a car service for veterans and their dependants, where a car and volunteer driver is available for those needing help getting to a doctor’s appointment, for example. “We’re just out and about everywhere,” O’Hara says.

CRD petitions province to buy JDF lands The development application would have seen 257 cabins, one resort lodge, two recreation buildings, six caretaker residences and a public park constructed adjacent to the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail. Three days of public hearings in Sooke showed almost unanimous public opposition to the proposal. “There was very little support for a resort development of any size,” Hicks said. He said that there were only three options for the lands in question: rezoning, logging or purchasing. “Now we’re down to log it or buy it. I’ve given it a lot of thought and not everyone is

Pirjo Raits News staff

Marine Trail Holdings cabin development in rural Juan de Fuca is dead in the water, but the game isn’t quite over. After the Sept. 14 vote to deny rezoning 236 hectares, JDF electoral area director Mike Hicks put forward a motion to petition the province to purchase the lands from owner Ender Ilkay. “I made the motion coming from comments (at the public hearings). It was very clear that the people in the Juan de Fuca (want the province) to purchase the land from Mr. Ilkay,” Hicks said.

grasping the reality,” he said. Hicks said Ilkay can sell the property in seven separate parcels and each owner can log or extract resources from the land without the CRD having any power to stop operations. “We have to accept that,” said Hicks. “I feel content, in my heart I did the right thing for the Juan de Fuca constituents, now the onus is on the province. It is (close to) a provincial park and I hope they step up, it’s important to protect that land and move on.” He supports the CRD using some of its parks allocation funds to help the provincial government purchase these lands.

Getting Punked out Victorian fantasy brings artists, inventors to Craigdarroch Castle Erin McCracken News staff

Rick Van Krugel appears in his kitchen wearing a black top hat, homemade goggles and a burgundy crushed-velvet blazer, and doesn’t look out of the ordinary. It’s no wonder, since his kitchen also serves as a steampunk workroom. Van Krugel and his wife, Linda Rogers – Victoria’s poet laureate when wearing her other hat – channel their inventive spirit to create steampunk jewelry. “It’s Victorian futurism,” he said of their brass, copper and steel earrings, necklaces and hair combs, made by soldering together Victorian-style keys, clock gears and springs, antique postage stamps, pearls and dip-pen nibs. “It has a Mad Max quality, a Dr. Who and Jules Verne feel,” said Van Krugel, touching an especially bold necklace built with a clock’s mainspring and a pearl. The Vic West couple will be

among a dozen artists displaying their unique talents at this weekend’s Victoria Steam Exposition II. The expo will be hosted at Craigdarroch Castle, a venue sure to provide an authentic period backdrop to the 19th century tribute to the steam-powered era. “Steampunk is a wink and a nod at the absurdity and excess of the exuberance of the Victorian age,” said Jordan Stratford, event impresario. Last year’s expo was the first steampunk event of its kind in the country, he said. Think Victorian-inspired jetpacks, ray guns, corsets and woodand-feather angel wings. Many vendors and visitors will be wearing their homemade creations, though costumes are voluntary. Stratford plans to wear his goggles, which have become synonymous with steampunk fashion. “I think it says I’m about to do something dangerous. It says adventure and tinkering, which are definitely the two core virtues

of steampunk and the Victorian era,” Stratford said. There will be artists, music, food, readings and panelists speaking on such topics as corset-tying and prop-making. An adults-only cabaret burlesque show entertains on Saturday night. Last year’s convention inspired Van Krugel and Rogers, as well as Rogers’ son, daughter-in-law and her granddaughter, to begin making their SteamPlanet creations. The proceeds of that venture have helped put their granddaughter’s South African pen pal through school – she graduated earlier this month from an information technology college. In addition to supporting a good cause, steampunk has given Rogers the chance to work with new tools and explore another creative side to herself. “I love it. It’s really relaxing,” she said, and then laughs. “Sometimes it’s frustrating. My ideas exceed my skill level.”

Don Denton/News staff

Rick Van Krugel and Linda Rogers create steampunk-inspired jewelry in their kitchen studio in Victoria West.

Foreign student plan recycled, NDP says Tom Fletcher Black Press

Premier Christy Clark stopped at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops Tuesday to unveil the second part of her jobs plan, a goal of increasing the number of international students in B.C. by 50 per cent. But critics were quick to point out that at least one of the measures, an international education council, is already in place. Clark announced that B.C. will use existing trade offices to help connect international students to B.C. education opportunities, send more students overseas, and “create an international

education council to help build strong relationships in both existing and emerging economies, like China, India, Brazil and Saudi Arabia.” In November 2008 the B.C. government announced the formation of the B.C. Council for International Education. Clark said Tuesday that regional workforce tables will be set up to work with local employers, labour, First Nations and others to use $15 million in available federal funds for training to address local labour needs around B.C. Victoria-Beacon Hill MLA Carole James said the money is welcome but it only restores funds cut from apprenticeship

So she's putting back $15 million. She's holding the line, not increasing amounts of money for skills training.” International students are already big business for B.C.

Volleyball, football and cross country teams are all in full swing at Belmont said teacher and athletic director Ken Lowe “School sports are such a valuable experience for these kids,” Lowe said. “It gives them a sense of success ... that’s why extra curricular activities haven’t been a part of the job action. We don’t want the kids to miss out.” Teachers are refusing to do administrative work as phase 1 of the “work to rule” strike across B.C., but coaching and athletics doesn’t fall under those restrictions. The school is actively seeking anyone interested in coaching of the teams as well. Belmont is also seek donations for an upcoming silent auction to raise money to go towards the athletic program. To donate an item or to become a coach contact Lowe by phone at 250-478-5501 ext. 118 or by email at klowe@

Royals sell out home opener Facing off against Vancouver, Victoria welcomes back WHL hockey Travis Paterson News staff

The Western Hockey League season kicks off tonight (Sept. 23) with the Victoria Royals in Vancouver against the Giants. Low scoring or high scoring, Royals coach Marc Habscheid said it’s tough to predict just what to expect this weekend. The Royals host the Giants in the second game of the home-and-home series on Saturday night, 7:05 p.m. at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. “It’s the beauty of junior, the kids will be nervous, mistakes will be made and it will make for exciting hockey.” One thing is for sure, this town is abuzz. Harbour Air got so excited about the Victoria Royals they painted a DeHavilland DHC-3 Turbine Single Otter seaplane in Royals’ colours and offered discounts for ticket holders. No, the Royals won’t be using the planes to travel but fans sure can. “It was a nice flight, a great way to see the area,” Royals goalie Keith Hamilton said. “Hammy,” as he’s known, is one of two offseason trades made by Habscheid to bring some experience into the Royals’ lineup. “I know (our) team is tough to play against, they work hard,” said Hamilton, who came here from

Victoria Royals mascot Marty the Marmot poses in front of the Harbour Air Seaplanes’ DeHavillland Otter plane that has been painted with the Royals logo. Victoria faces the Giants tonight. Portland where the Winterhawks had rivalries with U.S. division teams such as Seattle and Spokane. He also recently witnessed an animosity between the Royals and Giants that’s carried over from the Victoria team’s previous incarnation in Chilliwack. “There are some guys who don’t like each other, it will make for some pretty good games.” Hamilton is battling for one of two available roster spots, along with 20-year-old Braden Gamble and 17-year-old Jared Rathjen. The team’s starting position is still up for grabs. Portland lost in the WHL finals to the Kootenay Ice. Fittingly,

another of the Royals’ off-season acquisitions, Hayden Rintoul, was with the Ice and went on to the Memorial Cup. “Certainly with (Rintoul and Hamilton) we wanted to bring in some experience. We’re going to be one of the youngest teams in the league,” Habscheid said. “(But) we don’t want patchwork, we want to build this team properly.”

Cowbell opera

With tickets as low as $5, president Dave Dakers of RG Properties’ sports and entertainment division is seeing through a com-

mitment to give everyone access to Royals’ games. Opening night against the Giants officially sold out Tuesday afternoon. Adding a little magic to the night is opera voice Mark Donnelly — the famed Vancouver Canucks’ anthem singer — who will perform O Canada before the game. The first 6,000 people to arrive will also get a cowbell, the preferred noisemaker of WHL fans. Play-by-play man Marlon Martens makes his live-game debut on The Zone 91.3 FM. The broadcast is also available at VictoriaRoyals. com.

Maritime supporters rally for museum in CPR terminal Roszan Holmen News staff

Supporters of the B.C. Maritime Museum met at the lawn of the legislature Tuesday to show their support for its bid to fill the CPR Steamship Terminal. “We’re just trying to send the message that we’re still strong believers that this is the best use of this public facility,� said museum president Jamie Webb. The terminal used to house the Royal London Wax Museum until being shut for seismic upgrading. Now, six candidates are bidding to lease the space, once the renovations are complete this fall. The B.C. Maritime Museum is currently located in Bastion Square, but its building is too small and not suitable for the exhibits, Webb said. A move to the Inner Harbour would bring more tourist traffic and better suit its seafaring theme. It would also open up new revenue streams, Webb added, such as food

and drinks, public performances, and a gift shop. The museum’s board estimates it would cost $5 million to set up shop at the CPR Steamship Terminal. As for rent payments, it “does not expect to pay the same rate that would be charged for a Granville and Georgia type of location as it is offering a huge social and economic benefit to the city,� according to board communications. Webb said major donors have expressed willingness to contribute if the museum wins the lease. But, he added, “it’s hard to get support on something intangible, which is what’s it’s been up until now.� Webb’s was one of three lease applications rejected in April. Since then, he’s characterized communication with the building’s manager, the Provincial Capital Commission, as “resounding silence.� Also applying for the space are pub owner Matt MacNeil, and Bob Wright of the Oak Bay Marine Group.

UVic student stunt leads to criminal charges A University of Victoria student had a poor start to the year, thanks to an initiation stunt. At about 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 11, the 17-year-old male student drove the wrong way around Ring Road, sideswiping a security officer's vehicle, crashing into a pole and trying to drive away from the scene. An Oak Bay police investigation

determined the wrong-way driving stunt was part of an initiation dare led by a campus club. It was also determined the driver had been drinking that night. He lost his driver's licence for 90 days, had his car impounded for 30, plus was charged for driving contrary to restrictions and for failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
