Run honours Terry Fox: P. 14 And the winner is... Project Reel Life was the winning business proposal pitched by a group of youth from Ladysmith Secondary on Thursday night. The plan hopefully will see the construction of a community movie theatre in the old electronics classroom at LSS. Members of the youth initiative will now work on obtaining a grant from the Community Action Initiative, which could garner them up to $200,000.

Ladysmith’s future discussed Group gathers at Aggie Hall to give voice to five areas of life in Ladysmith and add to visioning process Matthew Peterson THE CHRONICLE

Around 60 people filed into Aggie Hall to discuss sustainability in Ladysmith. The session was led by Mark Holland, formerly of

HB Lanarc, who took the lead hand in Ladysmith’s visioning process in 2008 and 2009. Participants were given the opportunity to pick three topics from a list of five — Economic, Natural Environment,

Built Environment, Social and Cultural and Working Together. Then three half-hour workshops were held where people had a chance to talk about different issues in each section, what actions

see addressed. For Arts and Culture, some of the top priorities selected by the groups were: Better funding for arts programs, rejuvenated and expanded public spaces, developing relationships with

Stz’uminus First Nation. For the Economic section, people would like to see the town look closely at attracting green businesses, exploring eco-tourism and exploring homebased businesses.

In terms of the Natural Environment, the people in attendance wanted to see the expansion of protected areas, protection of Holland Creek and the harbour and more parkland. See Participants Page 3

New Seniors’ advisory council members, from left, Michael Furlot, Gary Richardson, Gerald Fox, June Raabe, Pat Schulson, Sharen Newton, Linda Brown, Trevor Stauffer and Ed Nicholson. Missing: Truus Meijer Drees.

Seniors’ council named Matthew Peterson THE CHRONICLE

Ladysmith has a new seniors advisory council that met for the first time on Sept. 14. The council consists of Linda Brown, Gerald Fox, Michael Furlot, Truus Meijer Drees, Sharen Newton, Ed Nicholson, June Raabe, Gary Richardson and Pat Schulson. Trevor Stauffer will be acting as an alternate member. The councillors met with stakeholders and organizers at the Seniors’ Centre for a brief lunch before it was time to get to business. Nicholson said at the first meeting the group dedicated Newton the interim-chairperson until a permanent person is selected by the group. They have

also asked Pat Edge, who acts as a national seniors councillor, to sit in on the meetings. According to their mission statement “The Ladysmith Seniors Advisory Council will serve as an advocate and representative of seniors in Ladysmith and area, encouraging seniors to contribute their skills, experience and wisdom in support of the social well-being in our community, and to partner with other like organizations to support the health and well being of all seniors and elders. The Ladysmith Seniors Advisory Council will act in an advisory capacity to and in co-operation with, services already in place, and keep seniors informed of services available.” Nicholson said the

council’s concrete goals and how they will go about attaining them has not yet been forged by the group. “I think the council has the potential for a lot of good. But it first has to establish how it works.” “I think maybe some kind of co-ordination in identifying service needs,” said Nicholson of what the council will be doing. Fox said he hopes the council will bring recognition to local seniors for their contributions to the community. “There’s a lot of things that could be done to aid seniors that aren’t being done.” One of the issues Fox wants to see dealt with is sidewalks, noting scooter rides often get very bumpy and driving a scooter on the road is

often a dangerous pursuit. “You take your life in your hands,” said Fox, who himself uses a scooter to get around town. “One of the things they could do is incorporate them into the bike paths,” said Fox, noting they could be wider to better serve all scooterusers. Fox also said there needs to be better coordination between seniors and other groups in town like Rotary or the Legion and youth in the area. “Seniors have a lot they can give to the community that the community is not utilizing.” The Seniors’ Centre is also hosting a complimentary lunch on October 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 630 2nd Ave.

Brown noted one of Ladysmith’s key assets is its beauty and work must be done to protect the mountains and the harbour. “We have to protect both of them,” said Brown, who also sits on the town’s liquid waste management committee. “The harbour is a valuable resource for us, for tourism and our citizens, there is also fisheries value in it. “We have to make sure we don’t push it beyond its capability.” Over the next term, Brown would like to see the Liquid Waste Management Plan completed and secondary treatment completed. “That should be achievable,” he said.

Movie theatre moves ahead

Ladysmith Chemainus Chronicle Tuesday, September 20, 2011 5

Smoke under the hood

Project Reel Life to be submitted for possible grant Niomi Pearson THE CHRONICLE

A group of students from Ladysmith Secondary are moving ahead with a business proposal that could bring a movie theatre back to Ladysmith. The decision was made after two youth initiatives, Project Reel Life and Carpe Diem, a proposal for a youth clothing/surf/ skate/bike store, were presented at the high school Thursday night. Project Reel Life proposes a youth run community movie theatre, housed in the old electronics room at Ladysmith Secondary and renovated by students in the school’s carpentry program. While working on their business ideas, all of the students were mentored by members of the local business community. The six students involved with Project Reel Life were encouraged to look at all aspects of running a movie theatre, including researching the costs involved with renovating the ideal location for a theatre, movie rights, concession supplies and a movie projector, which can cost in excess of $100,000, said project member Brendan Wilkinson. “ Yo u p r e t t y m u c h break even on movie distribution, so that’s why when you go to the movies the popcorn is so ridiculously expensive,” he said. However, using the old electronics room at LSS would not only make use of school district facilities during declining enrollment, but keep operational costs low, said LSS principal Dave Street. “Running as a youth run/school run project, the overhead would be extremely low, and if you couple that with concession revenues, and the chances of something like this breaking even and even doing better is a given,” he said. The youths will now move on to the second stage of the Community

Carpe Diem team members Kristy DeClark and Chad Schoolcraft say they will continue their vision for a student run multi store front clothing/sport store, having already received feedback from interested NIOMI PEARSON/CHRONICLE investors. Action Initiative, a grant application that could net them up to $200,000 for their proposal. Audience members also heard about project Carpe Diem, a proposal to run a youth clothing and more store on High Street. According to project leaders Kristy DeClark and Chad Schoolcraft, the location could accommodate about five or six retailers who would lease a storefront space for their products, while the youth would help run the shop and order in the products. “Because Ladysmith is so small so you only need a small quantity of each brand of clothing or bike,” Declark said. “If there’s a dance coming up and you don’t have time to go to Nanaimo and you want clothing, there’s nowhere really to go.” The pair would like to keep a youth clothing and sport store theme in mind, selling bikes, skateboards and providing bike repair services for the entire community. “The one good thing about it is, the building that we’ve picked has a top floor, and what we are thinking is the bottom floor would be used for shopping and then when we have enough money, make the top floor into a cafe or smoothie shop,”

Schoolcraft said. “Not only would we be introducing youth to being more active, and spending more time learning more sports, we’re also allowing them to have a place where they can have their time and hang out.” Carpe Diem has already received a proposition from Frontrunner, and talks are in the works. The meeting was well attended by members of the community who were impressed by the students’ efforts. “The town can be very proud of our youth,” said Sid Roemer of the Ladysmith Lions club. “I’ve seen so many businesses come up with all the glorious things that are going to be done and suddenly they’re gone. With the youth, I think we’ve got a good chance to set up something that’s going to prosper and make this town even better.” Regardless of the outcome of the grant, the students will look at other opportunities with the community to get their projects off the ground, says project coordinator Sam Corrington, of the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association, who funded the youth initiative through a $10,000 convening grant. Keep tuned to the Ladysmith Chronicle as the projects develop.

I would like to know what it looked like 200 years ago and try to return it to that. Could we harvest oysters there again?” Looking back Whittington said he has enjoyed his first term as councillor and working with a diverse group of people.

Town trashes plan for solar bins The solar-powered trash compactors have been removed from First Avenue. The bins were part of a pilot project the town has decided not to proceed with, said Mayor Rob Hutchins. While the bins were e f f e c t i v e a n d p e rformed well, they sent the wrong message about waste, Hutchins

added. “The solar idea was good, ... but it’s in opposition to our efforts to recycle, reduce and reuse.” The town, he said, will be better served with recycling and organic collection bins around town. “Instead of one large garbage container.” “So we decided not to

proceed.” Hutchins said he is hoping council will look at the new bins during the next budget process. The decals depicting historical Ladysmith scenes were easily peeled off the cans when they were returned, he said. — Matthew Peterson

Council takes watershed resolution to UBCM Niomi Pearson THE CHRONICLE

Ladysmith Councillor Steve Arnett says he is feeling optimistic about the resolution on watershed protection the town will present at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) conference next week. The resolution, prepared by TOL staff, calls on the provincial government to assist communities in acquiring ownership of their watersheds by gifting them the land or providing the funds to purchase them. “It is officially a resolution to be reviewed, discussed and debated and a choice made to endorse or not or refer by the body of all of the communities that belong to the UBCM,” Arnett said. “I’m hoping for a majority vote at the least, if not unanimous.” The resolution also calls for the Ministry of Environment to monitor the activity of all water-

sheds used for drinking water and maintain levels and quality control. According to Arnett, other municipalities have put forward similar resolutions regarding watershed protection, such as pesticide spraying, logging activities, and more local authority over watershed activities. However, none have gotten to the heart of the issue. “None of them were comprehensive and said it all in one fell swoop,” he said. “They are all symptomatic of the broader public issue.” A watershed is defined as an area of land where all of the water that is under it or drains off of it goes into the same place. As such, the land is always environmentally sensitive, and the only way that you can maintain public security of that resource is through ownership, Arnett said. “It’s a very expensive proposition for a small municipality, or even a larger one, but most

particularly the smaller ones like ourselves,” he said. “In the end, you’d always have to make choices about how much money you’ve got coming in, and where your priorities are, well water is a number one priority, but you’d like to be able to drive from your house to the school over top filled-in potholes.” Members of council are preparing a presentation to deliver to UBCM members before it is open for discussion. A failure to initiate a broad public policy across the province, where every community owns and controls its watershed would be a failure of public policy, Arnett said. “If water is life and it’s fundamental to everything we do as human beings, then it seems to me that a community has not only an obligation but a right to own and control its watershed,” he said. “If you don’t have full ownership you don’t have control.”

YOUR WORDS “I think the council has the potential for a lot of good.” Ed Nicholson, Page 3

lection season has not even started and already we’ve heard of a lot of issues that will no doubt be brought up time and time again during the campaign. The candidates who have already declared their intention have brought up a number of issues facing Ladysmith they want to tackle if elected, or re-elected. One issue that seems to keep popping up is the proper development of the waterfront. Pretty much everyone in town sees it as a valuable resource that should be developed, or at least cleaned up. And most everyone agrees that there are better things than just residential development that could go there. What and when and where will depend on the next council. And most of the hopeful councillors agree they would like to see something done for Ladysmith to secure its watershed areas. The visioning session last week was a great eye-opener into what’s on the mind of Ladysmith’s residents. Population density, arts funding and protecting the environment were some of the other topics that were brought up during the visioning session and deserve some attention from the next council. We have a few weeks from when the official nomination period closes to the election date to bring you as much as we can on the people hoping to represent you on a municipal level. So tell us what is important to you in Ladysmith and what issues you want to be discussed in October and November by emailing editor@ladysmithchronicle.com. We will compile your results and see what trends start to emerge. No matter what you do, make sure you take part. Municipal politics is the one division of politics that affects your life most closely — from garbage collection to what will happen with that parcel of land next to your neighbourhood. So know what you want and how to express it.

ICTORIA – The Americanization of Canadian and B.C. politics is gathering speed now that legislated four-year terms are finally settling in at the federal and provincial level. Scheduled elections are an important reform, but the downside is that they seem to lead inexorably to constant campaigning. The latest example is the B.C. Liberal Party’s website and radio campaign directed at upstart B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins. “Strange days indeed,” NDP leader Adrian Dix mused on his Facebook page. “The Liberals, after a week of nasty attacks on the NDP, launched an antiJohn Cummins website. Absent a policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their

problems. This too will backfire as Ms. Clark is again misreading the public mood. People are demanding substance in politics these days, not photo ops and negative attacks.” I see nothing strange in Dix rushing to the defence of Cummins, who represents the NDP’s best hope for a move into the legislature’s west wing. It is a bit odd for Dix to accuse others of lacking policy, as he leads a party that has been distinguished by little other than negative political tactics since its near-death experience in 2001. This is almost as strange as the B.C. Liberals damning Cummins as a politician who “says one thing and does another.” Yeah, 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 stick-men.) 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 antiCummins campaign has a similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto. The website, canttrustcummins.ca, uses a bugeyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gunwielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie.

It was Reform BC that rose from the ashes of Social Credit, and inspired a desperate Gordon Campbell to sing country music and take a hard line on aboriginal relations, to stitch the ruptured right back together. Cummins defined himself as a Reform-AllianceConservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. 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.

Logo feedback Editor: The new logo is a thousand times nicer. Bart Vogelzang Ladysmith Editor: I like the new logo. The only thing that I noticed that was a bit strange, was that the buildings look kind of like a courthouse or a police station... I asked a few other people what they thought and they agreed. But otherwise, it’s beautiful. Nice trees and good placement and balance. Lena Birtwistle Ladysmith Editor: To my eyes the current logo is visually alive and tells me “Vibrant Community.” The proposed logo to me is flat and says “Sleepy Town”. Again, to my eyes, the current logo appears three-dimensional and is a superb design that perhaps could stand a bit of updating without destroying the current ‘feel’. The proposed logo looks like traditional standard fare and seems soooo ‘yesterday’. As far as the web designers go, I cannot fathom why the town would change its logo mainly because the designers have indicated that “ ........ the current logo is difficult to work with ......... “. This surely is the tail wagging the dog. Peter Blumel Ladysmith Editor: I like the new logo, represents Ladysmith town center, and is very recognizable. Brent Browning Ladysmith Editor: Absolutely love the new logo...

As an official media sponsor of the 2011 Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, Black Press has pulled out all the stops to give readers insight into every angle of the Sept. 24 to Oct. 7 ride. We’ve even got a rider – Nanaimo News Bulletin reporter/photographer Chris Bush – on the team. He’s on Twitter (@chrisbushtdr) and has been busy tweeting and blogging (http://blogs.bclocalnews.com/bushsblog/) about his training journey and will be keeping it up throughout the two-week ride. With less than a week to go before the riders embark from Port Alice and start their 1,000-kilometre pedal down-Island, Black Press newspapers have added lots of options for readers to keep updated on the tour’s progress. Of course, our traditional print papers have already offered numerous news stories about the tour, the riders from each community, and the people who help them out. On the web, we’ve expanded our Tour de Rock presence with a ride-specific site (www.bclocalnews.com/tour-de-rock/) with tons of ride-related content. Each of our websites has several clear entry points to lead you to the Tour de Rock site, which includes lots of information about the ride, an interactive route map and official tour program available online, a TwitterFall (People can contribute to the ongoing conversation by following the hash tag #tourderock), a public Flickr photo gallery, videos, links to other Tour de Rock pages, as well as Chris Bush’s blog and ways to donate to him or any of the riders. Readers can expect this site to start getting lots of activity, and even more fresh content. Journalists in our various Island newsrooms will also be tweeting as the tour rides into their towns and loading stories and photos to the website as quickly as they can. Readers can even help contribute by submitting their own photos t o t h e F l i c k r g a l l e r y ( w w w. f l i c k r. c o m / groups/2011tourderock/pool/) or videos – the more the merrier. To upload video, simply go to www.BCDailyBuzz.com, set up a profile and load your video.

The Chronicle reviews Ladysmith Little Theatre’s latest murder mystery Niomi Pearson THE CHRONICLE

Saturday evening’s dark and dreary weather provided the perfect stage for a retelling of a classic Agatha Christie tale. A d u l t e r y, m u r d e r and madness form the primary foundation of The Hollow, which is now in its second week of performance at the Ladysmith Little Theatre. At the centre of this unfortunate series of events is John Cristow (Rob Smith), a successful doctor who has come to The Hollow, home of Lucy and Henry Angkatell (Inge Cathers and Gordon McInnis) for the weekend with his wife

Gerde (Tabi Jasper), With John just having who, while boring has returned late in the wee provided a stable mar- hours of the morning riage for Cristow, after from a visit with Cray, having had his heart it would seem most broken by his ex-mis- likely that Gerde is the tress Veronica Cray, the murderer. movie star.

performances, perhaps the most impressive performance of the evening was that of Malinda Schenker and her portrayal of the tortured and emotional Henrietta. As our summer weather begins to dwindle into less than favorable conditions, it is the perfect time to take in a production at our local theatre. The Hollow, with its twists and turns, provides great entertainment value. The Hollow plays Thursdays to Sundays, with varied performance times, until October 2.

Jeremy Crittenden is taken by the seeming dual personality of Mozart, the musical genius he portrays in Chemainus Theatre’s Amadeus. “I really connect with the character,” said Crittenden, 29, who d e p i c t s Wo l f g a n g Amadeus Mozart at age 26 to his late 30s. “ H e ’s e x t r o v e r t e d with a dirtier sense of humour and strong convictions about how he sees the world, and creativity. “That doesn’t always jibe with the people around him.” Mozart would likely have been a riot at barbecues back in 1780s Vienna. The party animal comes alive in Peter Schaffer’s script for the Amadeus play, and the movie that made Mozart a household name. “Schaffer made some changes for the movie Jeremy Crittenden is Mozart and Samantha Currie is Constanze Weber in the Chemainus Theatre Festival’s but the story line of staging of Amadeus that started last week.

Local Matt Grant eyeing Capital season Capitals GM Jim Ingram looking forward to bring the former WHL forward back onto home ice. Matthew Peterson THE CHRONICLE

Ladysmith’s Matt Grant is making his presence known among the Cowichan Capitals organization. Jim Ingram, associate coach and GM, said Matt’s size is serving the team well and there is little doubt the almost 18 year old will make the team. “He’s a big kid with a lot of skill,” said Ingram of what he has seen so far of Matt. Matt is joining the Capitals after a season with the Moose Jaw Warriors in the WHL. Ingram said the two leagues offer different styles of play and added they are looking forward to Matt’s puck-handling abilities. Plus with a

6-ft-3, 190 lb. frame, Matt is expected to be a great presence in front of the net. “He’s got long legs, long arms, skate’s well for a big kid, handles the puck very well.” Ingram said Matt is slated for a definite offensive position and they are hoping he puts up some good numbers. “He’s still going to have to work very hard at developing his game. You’ve got lots to learn at every level.” “He’s a hard-working forward and hopefully we will see a lot of improvement out of him and if the Western Hockey League comes calling and we’ve been able to help him move along, that’s what we’re here for.

Matt is the young brother of Jordan, who last year climbed the scoring charts to land second overall in scoring in the entire BCHL. Ingram said it is too soon to be drawing comparisons between the brothers. Ingram coached Jordan, too, when he had his Island coaching job with Kerry Park. “Jordan was a pure goal scorer.
