In an attempt to encourage more involvement in the political process, a number of Nanaimo organizations are thinking outside the box to get voters to the polls for the Saturday (Nov. 19) municipal election. The South End Community Association compiled community input from a 2008 blog on neighbourhood concerns and posed the top three questions to this year’s candidates for mayor and council in an online forum. The responses, posted at http:// nanaimosouthendvotes.wordpress.com, allows voters to compare candidates’ views. Not all candidates responded, but Ed Chan, association member, said the group is pleased with the responses they have received considering so many groups created their own forums. “The south end is probably facing more transitions over the next decade than any other neighbourhood in Nanaimo,” said Chan in a press release. “We want to ensure that we elect representatives who understand what’s important to us, who will listen to us, and give us the support we need to manage the changes that we will be facing. In order to do that, we need to get out and vote.” The Young Professionals of Nanaimo hope to reverse the trend of low voter turnout with a rallying call to the polls. ◆ See ‘CITIZENS’ /6

Teachers’ rally a reminder of ongoing battle

Groups urge more people to cast votes

Quality & Service at Budget Prices

VOL. 23, NO. 86

BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Teachers rallied at secondary schools across Nanaimo Tuesday afternoon as a reminder the union is fighting for better working and learning conditions. “It’s to rally our teachers, to get them reinvigorated and it’s also to get the message out there that teachers are still here and we’re still fighting for improvements,” said Justin Green, first vicepresident of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association. Teachers have been without a contract since June and job action, which consists of refusing to do certain administrative and supervisory tasks, began when school resumed in September. The union is asking for improved working and learning conditions – including more stringent limits for classroom sizes and the number of special needs students in each class – improved wages and benefits, and more local bargaining power. ◆ See ‘FUNDING’ /3

EVACUATION ORDER Firefighters bring a rescue stretcher to retrieve a woman who fell and broke her leg in Colliery Dam Park Monday afternoon. Emergency personnel at the scene said the woman, in her mid-20s, slipped when she lost her footing on a wet log. Wet and cold fall weather has created slippery conditions on woodland pathways, especially around roots, fallen trees, and wooden stairs and walkways. CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Alcohol, evidence of cocaine found in driver’s system BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

◆ From /1 More than three dozen teachers gathered at Nanaimo District Secondary School at about 3:30 p.m., carrying signs in English and French. Virginia Burns, a special education teacher at Cinnabar Valley Elementary School, said she wants people to be aware provincial funding levels are inadequate. “Funding isn’t meeting the needs of the kids right now,” she said, adding her school has three education assistants who are trying to meet the needs of more than a dozen students in different classrooms. Ann Rainboth, a teacher at Pauline Haarer Elementary School, said she feels limited by the job action, but teachers are willing to stay the course to fight for more funding. “I know some of my colleagues have six special needs students and they don’t have full time aids,” she said. “The teachers can’t

do it alone. We just want to teach. We want to get our job done.” Fairview Elementary School teacher Karen James supports the teacher job action because she feels like she’s doing something to try to get better supports in schools. “At least I’m standing up for students and working conditions by being on strike,” she said.

James’s Grade 4/5 split class has 26 students, six of whom are on individual learning plans and are designated special needs students. She is allotted one education assistant to help these children, but the EA spends most of her time with one child, who is a safety risk. “It leaves me very scattered and unable to meet the needs of my students,” said James.

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

ABOVE: Shelley Serebrin, teacher on call, centre, joined more than 30 other teachers in front of Nanaimo District Secondary School Tuesday to raise awareness about challenges confronting teachers in the public education system. BELOW: Rachel Fritz, left, and Cassie Squire, Nanaimo District Secondary School Grade 10 students, stepped out to join ranks with their teachers.

3956 Victoria Ave.

“It makes me feel guilty.” Erin Currie, a special education teacher at Fairview, said she has double guilt – she feels like she’s letting down not only students but also teachers because she’s trying to do to much with her time. NDSS Grade 10 students Cassie Squire and Rachel Fritz joined teachers at the rally. “We’ re getting blank report cards,” said Fritz. “If you fail a class, you’re not going to know until after the job action is over.” Squire said it’s not fair that students won’t get formal grades because teachers are not preparing report cards, but thinks teachers deserve more from the government than they are getting. Green said more than 80 teachers showed up at Dover Bay and he counted about 50 at Wellington. “For something we put together in less than a week, it was good,” he said.

Alcohol, evidence of cocaine use and anti-depressants were found in a blood sample taken from a Nanaimo woman after she was involved in a tragic car crash. Clare Bekkers faces eight charges relating to a car crash on the Island Highway near the Cassidy Inn Dec. 22, 2008 that killed her two sons and injured her two daughters. Her trial in Supreme Court in Nanaimo resumed Monday after a two-month adjournment. Ronald Pon, an RCMP forensic toxicologist, told the courtroom Tuesday he found 42 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood – under the legal driving limit of 80 – in a blood sample taken at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital about an hour and 40 minutes after the accident. He also found three compounds produced when the body is breaking down cocaine, which indicates Bekkers took cocaine at some point, although Pon couldn’t say exactly when. Pon said the blood sample also included a higher amount of an anti-depressant drug than the normal therapeutic range, adding one of the known side-effects of overdosing is drowsiness. Each of the substances found in the blood sample could potentially affect a person’s ability to drive, he said, although he couldn’t conclusively say if Bekkers was impaired. A person in the “crash” phase of cocaine use can be tired, depressed and irritable, Pon testifed, and a person’s vision, depth perception, attention to surroundings and reaction time are potentially affected by blood alcohol concentrations under the legal driving limit. The Crown asked Pon to give his opinion on what Bekkers’s blood alcohol content was at the time of the accident and earlier in the day. His analysis determined it was between 59 and 76 milligrams per 100 millilitres of blood at 4:20 p.m. – the time of the crash – and above the legal limit at 1:30 p.m., around which time a previous witness placed Bekkers in the Victoria area. On Monday, five people involved in the collision described the fatal crash. Ken Wilson, heading southbound to Ladysmith, said he saw the headlights on a vehicle heading northbound towards him “bucking” up and down. He watched the car fishtail to one side and then the other, but expected it to stay in the northbound lanes. Wilson decided to change from the left lane to the right to warn the drivers behind him there was a hazard on the road. The Crown’s case was expected to wrap up Wednesday. The defence has requested a short adjournment.

sparks a hotel deal. But he added it is too early to say for sure if there is any commitment. “We’re expecting a submission from one group we’ve had ongoing discussions with for some time, about two or three months really,� said Ruttan, adding there has been no formal proposal. “Like any other commodity, there is a lot of back and forth.� The city entertained several interested parties over the past three years since the original developer, Millennium Properties Ltd., defaulted on the original agreement. Ruttan said he has heard inquiries from Chinese investors and Vancouver hoteliers, among others, though none have resulted in a commitment due to doubts about profitability. “The thing is we’ve had so many people come right up to the altar and we’re expecting them to say ‘I do’ and they don’t,� said Ruttan. “Hopefully this added incentive will be what is needed to get that ‘I do’.� The new 10-year tax e xe m p t i o n , wh i ch would be provided to any new hotel or existing hotel that spends more than $2 million in renovations, could save a developer as much as $1 million annually on a $40-million hotel. The tax exemption was passed with the intention of increasing

the number of quality rooms downtown to allow the conference centre to operate at its potential, something it hasn’t done since opening in 2008. There are currently 400 hotel rooms in the downtown area suitable for hosting conference participants. The VICC can seat 1,300 people and feed 950 at a sitting. Since being built, Nanaimo taxpayers have subsidized the VICC for roughly $1 million annually to make up the shortfall. Ruttan said uncertain financial viability and financing in the hotel sector has deterred commitments for the project, often resulting in incentive demands. “Most groups demand a list of concessions before talks even begin,� he said. “Incentives are what they are looking for. We needed to be flexible in a very difficult market and we’re not going to be able to achieve the goals we set out unless we create some opportunities.� One of Ruttan’s first acts after being elected mayor in 2008 was to ensure the city retained ownership of Millennium’s detailed drawings of the hotel, an act that could also result in the additional incentive of saving a developer some preliminary legwork. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Diabetes symposium aims to foster healthier living Quickfacts

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

An upcoming diabetes symposium aims to help people make small changes that will have beneficial impacts on their health. The Canadian Diabetes Association hosts its annual educational symposium Saturday (Nov.19), from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Coast Bastion Inn, located at 11 Bastion St. Keynote speakers include Clair Biglow, presenting Is your Doctor Enough?, and Patricia Chuey, presenting Weight Management for Good. Chuey, a registered dietitian and nutrition consultant and chairwoman of Dietitians of Canada board, said the symposium is beneficial regardless of whether people have diabetes. “It’s basically a healthy living event,” she said. Chuey’s session will examine what people are eating, lifestyle habits and small changes people can make to maintain a healthy diet. She said it’s proven that when a person’s weight is in the healthy range and blood sugar is under control, there are fewer complications. When people are first diag-

nosed with diabetes, there are a lot of questions. People often feel pressure at every meal or snack, wondering if they’re eating the right thing, said Chuey, who plans to help answer those questions. “It’s already stressful to face a diagnosis of diabetes,” she said. “I want people to go away from the seminar feeling like there is no need to feel deprived of any food out there. They can fit it into a diabetes diet.” It’s vital for people to get their blood sugar under control, but that doesn’t mean people have to carry a calculator with them everywhere they go and count every calorie. Often the missing link in people’s diets is balanced eating, eating in a way that will jumpstart the system for optimum weight loss, said Chuey.

City receives grant money

in helping inform voters

Nanaimo is getting nearly $371,000 from the province as a grant in lieu of taxes. The grant is paid on property owned by the provincial government, for which property taxes aren’t paid. In total, 64 B.C. communities shared $16.9 million in grant compensation, as a way of reimbursement for municipal services the properties use.

◆ From /1 The group hoped to have many of its members vote at Wednesday’s advanced poll at Bowen Park and urges everyone to vote. Leif Bogwald, YPN president, said youth engagement in politics is important, and with candidate information available online, it helps cater to the younger demographics. “Most people I know

haven’t attended many of the all-candidates meetings, but are going online to get their information,” he said. “When you have 26 people running for council and mayor and 13 running for school trustees, it’s hard to make an impact on the voters when you have less than five minutes to speak at a meeting.” Bogwald said YPN sees the importance of choosing someone who has a vision of what they want Nanaimo to become both in the short and long term. “Research online, talk to friends and family, watch videos and do your homework,” he said. The Coalition for Democratic Nanaimo hosted a forum Nov. 10 with candidates split into groups to debate a single issue, rather than fielding questions from the audience. Issues were chosen from public submissions to the group’s bog – http://democraticnanaimo.blogspot.com. More than 600 people

attended the meeting and co-organizer Karen Hovestad said judging from public feedback, she believes the success of the meeting will translate into more people at the polls. “The intent was to let the audience see how the candidates processed an issue, how they worked together, or didn’t work together,” she said. “We didn’t get as much interaction between candidates as we had anticipated, but a lot of people came up to us later and said they loved it. Our goal was to provide something different and inspire people to get out and vote.” Voting stations are open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.

Small donations earn big reward Annual Pennies for Presents campaign collects coins to benefit Nanaimo charities

That’s what people say. The only problem with Blundstone boots is that they never seem to wear out. Oh, people try. But after a few years of kicking the bejeez out of them, they’re more comfortable than ever and still going strong. Expensive? Nope, they get cheaper by the day.

BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

P

ennies for Presents is an enthusiastic recycler. Using coffee cans, jam jars and peanut butter containers, people of all ages gather up loose change to donate to the annual fundraising drive. Often containers are re-used from year to year, with faded stickers adhering to dented tins, which sit on shelves all year collecting change. Money donated to the Pennies for Presents campaign helps three charities in Nanaimo - the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive, the Salvation Army and the Nanaimo Boys and Girls Club. Those charities provide toys for underprivileged children so that no one is left empty-handed on Christmas morning. The annual campaign was started by Frank Legh, a Black Press advertising consultant, in 1996 and since then raised more than $148,000. When choosing collection jars, make sure they’re small – pennies, in large numbers, weigh an awful lot – and easy to empty. People can take their containers with them after donating. “We’ve had pennies donated in all sorts of containers,” said Mitch Wright, News Bulletin managing editor. “Water-cooler bottles are always popular, but when choosing a container, keep in mind how easy – or difficult – it will be to remove pennies later.” Pennies for Presents kicks off today (Nov. 17) and will continue until Dec. 16. During that time, donations of all denominations – from pennies to $100-bills – can be made at the News Bulletin office at 777 Poplar St., or one of our community drop-off locations: InPrint downtown; John’s Bedroom Barn; Northridge Fitness;

OPINION

www.nanaimobulletin.com The Nanaimo News Bulletin is published every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday by Black Press Ltd., 777 Poplar Street, Nanaimo, B.C., V9S 2H7. Phone 250-753-3707, fax 250-753-0788, classifieds 250-310-3535. The News Bulletin is distributed to 33,372 households from Cedar to Nanoose.

EDITORIAL

Groups strive to fight apathy Community groups in Nanaimo are doing their best to keep one aspect out of Saturday’s (Nov. 19) municipal election – voter apathy. From online forums created by the South End Community Association, rallying calls to get out and vote by the Young Professionals of Nanaimo and a fresh version of an all-candidates meeting by the Coalition for Democratic Nanaimo, opportunities are available to learn more about those EFFORTS TO INFORM seeking office and ask questions about their voters rely them platforms and vision for the on voters who city. care enough to In a campaign dominated pay attention. by the social housing issue, these groups provide one key ingredient necessary to cast a vote – information about a candidate that can’t be clearly gleamed from a glossy pamphlet or 30-second sound bite during a question and answer period. In the case of the Democratic Nanaimo forum, it wasn’t so much about the issues as allowing the audience to see how candidates interacted with others and might perform if elected to council. Social media has become the go-to forum for people to get informed. That’s why the News Bulletin made sure in its reporting, each candidate profile included a website, blog or Twitter address (if they were available). But as you can only lead a horse to water but not make it drink, the final responsibility lies with the voters. In the 2008 civic election, about onethird of eligible Nanaimo voters turned out to choose who would guide our city and school district. This year, community-minded citizens have taken the first step to erase that apathy, to give the people every reason to vote and have a say in Nanaimo’s present and future. Now, it’s up to the voters to take the all-important next step.

School board elections have become even more of an insider activity. To take one example, a school trustee candidate forum in Abbotsford last week started with a protest march by 18 teachers. They carried their message inside, demanding smaller classes, more special needs support, the familiar list of demands in their dysfunctional relationship with the provincewide bargaining agent. Of course school trustees have no actual authority over these huge and costly issues. The province took away school board taxing authority long ago, because the teacher and support staff unions have the money and voting numbers to control low-turnout local elections for their own benefit. Now the unions have to settle for vetting candidates according to their willingness to lobby the B.C. government on behalf of unions. There are still things you can do to compare candidates, and it doesn’t take long to sort through a dozen or two hopefuls. Please, check this paper’s website for recent surveys and stories on the local candidates, and take some time on Saturday to back the people who you think have the best experience, independence and understanding of the community’s needs. Occupy the voting booth. ◆ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Meters a cash cow for government To the Editor, Re: New technology a matter of choice, Reporter’s Viewpoint, Nov. 8. I am sorry to hear that the writer needs a smart meter to tell him when he is using too much hydro. I think anyone knows when you flip a switch or plug in something or use anything electrical, you are using hydro and I don’t know how much more in real time it could get. It has yet to be shown to me how exactly a smart meter will cut my consumption. I am quite aware when I use hydro. The only thing smart meters will do is charge you more money during peak demand hours. The government says this is not the case, but it will happen. This smart meter is the government’s cash cow. That is why smart meters were invented in the first place. They record exactly how much power you use and exactly when you use it, then they charge you a higher rate during the hours most humans need power. But the government wants you to believe that that won’t happen here. S. Fisher Nanaimo

votes in low information races. School district trustee political races have traditionally low information and low voter turn-out. Unfortunately, name recognition is not the best criterion to use in casting your votes. In the previous election, I cast my votes based on observed performance. I noted the trustee who took an interest in attending PAC meetings during a year when the facilities’ plan was being pushed. At the board meetings, I also noted which trustees were confrontational to queries from concerned parents, evasive and/or dismissive of concerns. I also noted the trustees who did not fully research their facts, used false claims as pivotal arguments, and publicly attacked parents in the media rather than focus on the issues at hand. I’d hate to see any trustee voted in based solely on the number of yard signs they have and I urge everyone to research and discuss current and past performances of former trustees and new candidates.

We have some good candidates and some low performers. Choose wisely – our children’s education counts and our taxes are paying for trustees’ salaries and the decisions that they make. M. Holubeshen Nanaimo

Federal crime legislation will be costly, ineffective To the Editor, I am writing out of concern that the federal government, led by the Conservatives, may push through a crime bill bringing in legislation that has proven costly and ineffective in other jurisdictions. Canada is one of the safest places in the world and my understanding is that our crime rate has been dropping. If we’re going to take a stance on crime, let’s focus on what has been working – crime prevention and rehabilitation. Punitive crime laws would clog the justice system, create a need for expensive jails and turn minor offenders into hardened criminals. Quebec and Ontario are already refusing to pay for this failed strategy. Let’s encourage our federal government to focus on addressing problems that really exist and use our precious resources for health, education and the environment. Joe Basnett Nanaimo

Housing development exploits environment To the Editor, After reading Toby Gorman’s opinion (Environment an all-important issue, Saturday Beat, Nov. 12), I would like to provide the following excerpt from Richard Bach’s book One. The book was written in 1988 and I have watched programs on TV going back as far as 1971 with the same warnings as we are hearing today – 41 years later – which kind of backs up the statement below of us having had millions of warnings and chances. “Evolution made civilization steward of this planet. A hundred thousand years later, the steward stood before evolution not helper but destroyer, not healer but parasite. So evolution withdrew its gift, passed civilization by, rescued the planet from intelligence and handed it to love. “A dear culture in so many ways, a gifted society, trapped at last by its greed and lack of vision. It ravaged the forests into desert, consumed

the soul of the land in mine pits and waste, smothered its air and its oceans, sterilized the earth with radiation and poisons. A million million chances it had to change, but it would not. From the ground, it dug luxury for a few, jobs for the rest, and graves for the children of all. In the end, the children didn’t agree, but the children had come too late.” I would like to touch briefly on development as one, local example. We pave over more and more grasslands and forests and farmlands in order to provide housing for others who wish to move here. I hear the argument from the development camp that these developments provide jobs and tax bases for the city. Yes, the developments do provide high-paying jobs for some for a few months and then what? The land is gone forever. We find that instead of our

taxes going down because of more contributions, they actually go up as our infrastructures need to be increased. And these houses? They will in most likelihood be put on the market in a year or two. I have never understood the development camp’s argument that we have no right to keep others from moving here. It’s true, we don’t. However, we have a glut of houses on the market, already built, already developed. Why can people not purchase these houses instead of needing something brand new? Then, once all the houses already on the real estate market are gone, we could perhaps provide a new development of houses until these are gone. How can anyone argue with the logic of that?

Canada’s ‘ethics’ on oil disingenuous tect the royal family in exchange for access to Saudi oil and influence around their oil policy. This deal secured a future for the House of Saud as one the wealthiest dynasties on earth and true to their word, America has sold Saudi Arabia $100 billion in advanced military weapons and stationed thousands of American troops there. This long-standing relationship gave the House of Saud the kind of power that ensured any boat-rocking democratic reform was unlikely. If Saudi oil is what we profess it to be, for us to champion a position of morality we should completely halt its purchase and denounce any nation that imports it. That is implausible because belying our hollow ethical rhetoric is the pragmatic truth that given our global addiction to oil, our current pipeline and refinery infrastructure and Saudi Arabia being a major American arms purchaser, the U.S. and Canada will continue

to buy Saudi oil. If we are to entertain ethical discussions, why not consider the morality of furthering an argument for expansion of our oil sands by exploiting violent Saudi oppression, when common sense dictates we know we will not stop buying their oil. What is our ethical responsibility to the environment or future generations as we annually turn 350 million cubic meters of glacial Athabascan river water into toxic sludge, laden with carcinogenic elements? The attempt to sanitize the oil sands by trying to portray a greater ethical purpose around human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia is, in and of itself, an acknowledgement that the oil sands cannot defend their production on an environmental platform. ◆ Retired Nanaimo resident Ron Heusen writes every second week.

August was a record month for Nanaimo Airport. About 19,000 people passed through the terminal, chalking up a 9.4-per cent rise over statistics for August 2010. “The month of August is a record month for us,” said Mike Hooper, Nanaimo Airport president and CEO. “We’ve never had so many passengers go through and this year we’re expecting a new record for the year.” S e p t e m b e r s aw 15,000 passengers pass through the terminal for an eight-per cent increase above September 2010. Hooper credits i m p rove d p a s s e n ger services in the expanded terminal, which include larger waiting rooms and new passenger screening and baggage handling systems.

Doctors worried about crowding in pediatrics I ADULT PATIENTS being housed in beds intended for children creates compromise in care, doctors say.

BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

A doctor in the pediatric unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hos-

pital is concerned that hospital overcrowding is compromising care for sick children. Dr. Jane Pegg said a year ago, staff in the

pediatric ward came into work one day to find the treatment room in the middle of the ward filled with adult patients. While staf f were told it was a temporary measure, adult patients continue to be housed in the unit the majority of the time.

“We are a year later now and essentially that room has been chronically filled with adult patients,” said Pegg. “It no longer feels like a contained, safe space for children.” A letter signed by Pegg and four other doctors connected with the unit was sent to the media last week. Pegg said the decision to go public was made after an adult patient was placed in the ward two weeks ago that staff felt could potentially be a safety risk to younger patients. Then on Monday, an adult on the ward was diagnosed with Clostridium dif-

important part of current standards of care, said Pegg. Children do best if they are staying in a room that they feel safe in, where they know that someone’s not going to come in and poke them with a needle or do other painful things to them, she said. She said the health authority recognized the need for such a room and built another one next to the unit, but it only holds one patient at a time and does not solve the problem of the influx of adults in the middle of the children’s ward. While the unit is not always full of children, Pegg said physicians want the space reserved for kids. “We haven’t even hit influenza season,” she said. “This is going to get worse. We need more beds somewhere. There’s no concrete plan to solve the overcapacity situation at the hospital.” Val Wilson, Vancouver Island Health Au t h o r i t y s p o ke s -

woman, said a fourbed patient room in the pediatric unit is used for overflow adult patients when needed. “We know it’s not ideal, but we put patients in the room when we need the space,” she said. The room is the last to be used in an overcapacity situation – all units are expected to take overflow patients when the hospital is over capacity – and the first area cleared and patients are screened for infectious diseases before being admitted to the ward. The health authority is working on various strategies to try to address its overcapacity, added Wilson. One of the hospital’s biggest challenges is the number of patients in hospital waiting for a spot in residential care facilities or other community care services, she said, and the health authority has been working with these services and facilities to address the capacity issues. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, the Saskatchewan judge appointed five years ago as B.C.’s first independent Representative for Children and Youth, has been reappointed for a second term. Vancouver-Quilchena MLA Colin Hansen announced the appointment to a standing ovation in the B.C. legislature Tuesday. Hansen chaired the all-party selection committee that voted unanimously to extend the term of one of the provincial government’s toughest independent critics. Turpel-Lafond was hired in 2006 to oversee services delivered by the Ministry of Children and Family Development, on the recommendation of former judge and conflict-of-interest commissioner Ted Hughes. Hughes conducted an inquiry into the 2003 death of Port Alberni toddler Sherry Charlie, who was killed by a relative in the home where she was placed under a ministry program. The ministry continues to struggle to implement a policy for delegated aboriginal child care programs around the province. Turpel-Lafond has recently suggested her mandate be expanded to advocate for young people who turn 19 and become clients of Community Living B.C., the delegated agency for adults with developmental disabilities.

Residents get reminder of flood risk Residents in flood and landslide-prone areas are being urged to plan ahead this fall and winter. Between 2007 and 2010, the La Niñaa weather phenomenon caused flooding and landslides in several areas of the Regional District of Nanaimo, and residents could see similar occurences in the next few months. “Landslides and flooding can happen very quickly – fast moving mud and surface water can knock down trees, flow over roadways and cause significant damage to homes,” said director Dave Bartram, chairman of the RDN Emergency Management Select Committee, in a press release. Slope instability and potential landslide can occur in some areas if approximately 50 mm of rainfall is received over a 24-hour period, or if there has been heavy extended rain for a week or more. In some circumstances, such as extended power outage (lasting more than a day or two) in extreme cold, the RDN might open one of its Emergency Reception Centres to help residents keep warm. Emergency Reception Centres equipped with generators include the Cranberry Hall, Rollo Seniors’ Centre on Gabriola Island and Nanoose Place. Keeping an eye on rainfall amounts, preparing a Grab ‘n’ Go Bag and making a family recovery plan can make all the difference in an emergency situation. A family recovery plan should include information on how to shut off electrical power and natural gas sources, safe meeting places out of the flood-risk area, an out-of-province contact, plans for pets and livestock, and a neighbourhood safety plan that identifies people who might need help. Information is available on the RDN website at www.rdn.bc.ca and at www.pep.bc.ca.

Landslides and flooding can happen very quickly.

Family law overhauled BY TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

The B.C. government has introduced sweeping changes to family law, to reflect modern trends from test-tube babies to the rising number of commonlaw relationships. B.C. now has three times the number of couples moving in together as are getting married, and those common-law relationships are more likely to break up. The legislation treats those similar to a marriage, in caring for children and division of assets. T he new Family Law Act is designed to encourage out-of-court settlements in family breakups, which account for about one

fourth of all cases in B.C. courts. It does away with the terms “custody” and “access” and emphasizes parental responsibility and guardianship instead, with new penalties for parents who refuse to provide parenting time or fail to spend time with children as agreed or ordered by a judge. The act also creates a new protection order for cases involving family violence, with any breach of the order treated as a criminal offence. Tracy Por teous, executive director of the Ending Violence Association of B.C., said civil protection orders under the Family Relations Act are not taken seriously by

police or coordinated with criminal investigations. Domestic violence cases are the second largest category of criminal charges in B.C. behind impaired driving. “Hopefully, under this legislation, [judges] are not going to arrange to have someone who’s threatening to kill the mother to have custody of the child,” Porteous said. Eugene Raponi, a family lawyer and mediator in Victoria, said common-law s p o u s e s c u r re n t ly have a difficult process to divide assets if they split up. The new legislation exempts inherited assets from settlements, and whether the couple is married

City pumps up marine firefighting Nanaimo Port Authority unveiled a new fire pump Monday that should bolster its marine firefighting capability. The $80,000 pump is installed aboard the port authority vessel MPA Eagle and incorporates a compressed air foam fire suppression system. T h e b o a t ’s s i z e enables it to get firefighters and equipment into remote areas and the pump will improve firefighting effectiveness around marinas

and waterfront facilities. The City of Nanaimo paid for the pump as part of a partnership

with the port authority to improve emergency management, public safety and eliminate duplication of services.

or not, it calls for even division of assets accumulated while they are together. It also protects voluntary agreements from being overturned by a judge, and provides for mediation and arbitration to reach agreements. The new law clarifies legal status for children where sperm or egg donors are used. An “intent to parent” definition ensures that donors do not have legal standing as parents. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Jeneece Edroff, the driving force behind fundraising for the construction of Jeneece Place, was scheduled to flip the switch to light up two large Christmas trees at the Grand, and be at The Bay in Woodgrove Centre promoting a gift registry of items needed at the residence. Supporters can shop online by visiting www.Hbc.com and clicking on their national gift registry. Enter ‘Jeneece’ for the first name and ‘Place’ for the last name and select special occasion. There will be a Facebook and Twitter campaign going on for this event until the end of Christmas. A project of the Queen Alexandra Foundation for

Children, Jeneece Place is a 10,500 sq. ft. home containing 10 bedrooms, a large communal kitchen, dining room, music, games, media and laundry rooms. Edroff, 17, was diagnosed at age three with neurofibromitosis, a disease that has caused tumours to grow off every nerve ending in her spine. She has undergone 13 surgeries and numerous chemotherapy sessions in Vancouver. From this experience, she knows how important it is for her family to have a place to stay close to the hospital so they can support her. The project is set to open Jan. 20, 2012 – Edroff ’s 18th birthday. It is expected to serve 600 families a year. For more information, please visit www. queenalexandra.org.

Cedar hall floored by RDN deal Cedar Community Hall visitors will have a bounce in their step thanks to a new eastern oak floor. The Regional District of Nanaimo and the Cedar Community Association have established an agreement where the RDN, in providing the association with funding for hall improvements, will receive reduced rental rates for five years. This helps the association make improvements to the hall and increase its usage, while providing the RDN with an affordable location for Area A recreation and culture programs. The RDN provided a total of $48,000 from its Area A community parks budget, which can also be accessed to assist local nonprofit organizations with improvements to community recreation facilities. The association received $27,000 in 2011 for the new floor, and will receive $21,000 in 2012 to be used for exterior painting and new accordion-style doors in the facility.

Jim Routledge FOR MAYOR

Well fellow voters and taxpayers, we have two days to the election. Are you going to vote? Yes? Good. No? Hummmm? Only 32% voted in 2008 for the local elections. 68% didn’t vote!!! What do you lose by not voting? As a parent, you lose a say in how our public school system operates. As a senior, you lose the opportunity to recommend ways to help your tax dollars get the best bang for the buck. As a business person you could lose out on opportunities to help train new employees who will stay in the community and add value to your enterprise. Who to vote for? The School Board has been reasonably working well together to improve policies and programs will increase that opportunities for student success while saving tax payer dollars. Six of the nine current Board members are seeking re-election. Re-electing these incumbents would provide the continuity needed to move forward with the implementation of the Board’s current plans for facility and program improvements. Electing three new people candidates, with demonstrated community service commitment and the related skills, will further strengthen the Board’s ability to carry out its mandate on behalf of public education. Our district and school system is in good shape. Yes, we can make improvements, and, if elected, I will continue to work diligently to implement new initiatives. I urge you to support candidates who want to make our district a true leader in education. I ask for your support on Saturday, November 19th. Visit www.nanaimoelection.ca for additional information. PLEASE PARTICIPATE – PLEASE VOTE.

Balanced Efficiency My vision for Nanaimo is efficiency in balance. I want to attract people and grow the city; provided for that growth by moving people efficiently and sustainably; make good use of the tools and resources we have to provide responsible, sustainable growth and a safe and caring community that includes housing for all.

Building Bridges I want to see Nanaimo continue to grow and develop and move up to the next level. It’s becoming a bigger city. We have to balance the needs of growth with the needs of the people who live here - and the people we are trying to attract. “Building Bridges” also includes a pedestrian bridge to Newcastle Island - to make this gem in our harbour accessible to all.

Making Connections I am connected to the youth in this community, to the seniors and to the business community. I am a successful business person and I want to give back to the community that brought me to where I am today.

Biography highlights accomplishments of sports great BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

H

e has four Grey Cup rings and is the only athlete to play in both Canadian football’s biggest game and the Stanley Cup final in the same year. He was runner-up for the Lou Marsh Award in 1957, given to the country’s most outstanding athlete, second only to Maurice “Rocket” Richard’s 500-goal milestone. Yet his name is hardly known outside the most die-hard sports

fan circles. With his new biography Kid Dynamite: The Gerry James Story, author Ron Smith hopes to change that. “He’s very modest about his accomplishments,” Smith said. James followed in the footsteps of his father, Eddie, who was considered one of the greatest running backs in the 1920s and ’30s in the Canadian Football League. Twenty years later, Gerry James did the same as running back for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. James’s career started at the age of 17, making him the youngest player in CFL history. He led

the league in scoring in 1957 and held the record for most rushing touchdowns in one season for 43 years. Not content with just playing football, James also won the Memorial Cup in 1955 with the Toronto Marlborors and played four seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, going to the Stanley Cup final in 1960 – six months after winning the Grey Cup with Winnipeg. “I found records that he wasn’t aware he held,” Smith said. “He just doesn’t talk about himself.” Smith and James became

friends on the golf links near their homes in Nanoose Bay. “I didn’t know him from Adam the first time I played with him,” Smith said. But Smith had an indication that James was more than he seemed by the competitive way he played their friendly golf rounds. Smith said it reminded him of an athlete. So he did a little digging. Sports records, scrapbooks compiled by James’s mother containing more than 1,500 articles from childhood to professional sport, and the memories from James him-

self provided the background for the biography. Smith describes it as a “wartsand-all” biography, covering aspects of his life James rarely discussed, even with family. “He was uneasy at times,” Smith said. “I treated it really seriously. “More than just sports people will enjoy it.” Smith will be signing books at Royal Bank in Woodgrove Centre Nov. 25, 1-4 p.m., and at the credit union at Red Gap shopping centre in Nanoose Dec. 2, 1-4 p.m. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Authors present poetry, Short stories, essays offered by writers memoirs during reading Join award-winning writers Theresa Kishkan and John Pass for readings from their newly released books of memoir and poetry. The Autumn Leaves Reading Tour features Kishkan reading from her imaginative and original memoir, Mnemonic: A Book of Trees, and Pass reading from crawlspace, his first collection of poetry since he won the Governor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Award for Poetry in 2006. They will be appearing at Harbourfront library Tuesday (Nov. 22) at 6:30 p.m. In Mnemonic: A Book of Trees, novelist and essayist Theresa Kishkan intertwines the mysteries of trees with the defining moments in life. For Kishkan, trees are memory markers of life, and through the pages of her book she explores the presence of trees in nature, in culture and in her personal history. Naming each chapter for a particular tree, such as the

Garry oak, the Ponderosa pine, the silver olive, and others, Kishkan draws from various strands of mythology from classical and contemporary sources to blend scientific fact with natural history and the artifacts of human culture, exploring her personal past within a botanical/historical context. The poems in Passâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crawlspace work within the narrowing passages imposed upon us by the inevitable strictures and limitations of living and experience: aging, love and loss, tightening or unravelling family ties. Pass was nominated for the Governor Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Literary Award for Water Stair and won for the book titled Stumbling in Bloom. He has also won the Canada Poetry Prize and was twice shortlisted for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. The reading is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 250-753-5411.

Two Vancouver Island authors celebrate the launch of their new books at the Nanaimo Museum Tuesday (Nov. 22), 2:30-4:30 p.m. Nanaimoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kim Clark will read from her feisty new short stories Attemptations and Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awardwinning writer Madeline Sonik will read from her fascinating collection of personal essays, Afflictions and Departures. All eleven stories in Attemptations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ranging from microfiction to near maxifiction â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are peopled by women, often physically challenged women. Disease and desire, mothering and the mundane propel her ongoing journey between poetry and prose. Affliction and Departures are first-person experiential essays by Sonik.

and feelings recaptured from memory, Sonik seeks out connections between the microcosm of the daily events of her childhood and the

Although Sonik explores some of the salient personal experiences of her young life, the essays are not traditional memoir. In addition to incidents

Former student supports conservatory BY NIOMI PEARSON BLACK PRESS

Trombonist Linda Pearse is bringing Baroque back for a benefit concert that will help young local musicians with their studies at the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music. Pearse, a former Yellowpoint resident, returns to the Island Nov. 27 with ¡Sacabuche!, a sackbut and cornetto ensemble based out of Indiana specializing in 16th and 17th century music. Pearse said it will be the first time in several hundred years since some of the works performed during the concert will have been played in public. “Music of the 17th century unfolds at a time of great cultural and social change,” she said. “It was recognized that the sun did not, as previously thought, orbit the Earth, and faith and the role of religion in everyday life were

questioned in a much more critical way. These developments are related to a shift in musical style.” Dramatic leaps and chromatic passages became popular musical devices, and instrumental works displayed flamboyant and breathtaking virtuosity, Pearse said. “[The] music becomes a bit crazy.” The sackbut, from which the ensemble gets its name, is a trombone from the Renaissance period used often in Baroque style music. “I love the gentle sound that the sackbut makes. It is particularly well-suited to accompany voices and blend with the organ,” Pearse said. “Audience members will be surprised at the sonorous beauty of the instrument with this funny name.” The concert will feature the voices of tenor Benjamin Geier and countertenor Steven Rickards, and violinists Martie

LINDA PEARSE

Perry and James Andrewes. Pearse grew up in Yellowpoint and studied piano with her nana from a young age, and first developed her love of the trombone in North Oyster Elementary School. She would later move to Montreal to pursue a jazz degree, and then spent a year in South Africa before heading to Europe for almost 10 years. While there, she was introduced to the Baroque trombone through teacher Abbie Conant. “I fell in love with

the detailed mannerisms and the improvisatory approach to playing that mirrors the jazz of my youth in so many ways,” she said. Pearse now lives in Sackville, New Brunsick, as the newly appointed assistant professor of music (brass specialist) at Mount Allison University. Three times a semester, Pearse travels to Indiana to teach Baroque trombone at the Jacobs School of Music Early Music Institute. Pearse said she felt compelled to support the Nanaimo Conservatory by giving the very gift she learned during her time there. “The scholarships that they provide for youth benefits our future musicians not only financially, but also psychologically,” she said. “I studied music theory through the conservatory as a child, and I benefitted from a scholarship that was put towards

my studies at McGill University.” The benefit concert will take place at St. Paul’s Anglican Church at 2 p.m. on Nov. 27. Tickets are $20. Please call 250754-4611. For more information, please visit www.sacabuche. com. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even look at the standings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re preparing for games, we treat it like every other game and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it should be, because no team in this conference is more special than any other team,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x2014;&#x2020; See â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BOTHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; /B2

The VIU Mariners returned to Nanaimo this week with bronze medals, not the exact shade of neckwear theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped for. But Bill Mer riman, coach of the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soccer team, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group and its achievements. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to search for answers as to why the team didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t repeat as national champs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the answer, as they say, is blowinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the wind. The Marinersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dreams of back-to-back gold faded on the first day of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian Collegesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Athletic Association championships, on a windswept pitch in Quebec City. The Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were up 1-0 against the Holland Hurricanes when the P.E.I. team booted a ball from 70 yards out toward the VIU goalkeeper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wind caught it and it went up over his head and in,â&#x20AC;? said Merriman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a little bit devastating.â&#x20AC;? The Hur ricanes got another break on the winning goal, as an Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearing attempt ricocheted off a playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leg into the net. So by the time the final whistles sounded, the VIU players found they had lost 2-1 without allowing hardly a shot on goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They definitely didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deserve to lose it but they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish their chances,â&#x20AC;? said the coach.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They stayed focused and bounced back for the other two games and they basically did what they had to do to try and get back in the tournament. But unfortunately they needed help from another team and that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen.â&#x20AC;? The Mariners needed the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Canes to lose by a goal, and also needed to win their next game by three goals. It might have happened, but Holland squeezed out a win, so VIUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-0 win Friday propelled them to the bronze-medal game, not the gold-medal final. There, they defeated F-X Garneau 3-1 on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really wanted to make sure that we did get that bronze and we wanted to work very hard as a group because we wanted to prove that we deserved to be there and we wanted to represent the PacWest well,â&#x20AC;? Merriman said. The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Ooks won gold, beating Holland in the final, 2-1. The Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s know that they could easily have been in that game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without a doubt I can say that,â&#x20AC;? said Merriman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even talking to the coach from NAIT and other coaches and even the coach of the Holland team that beat us, I think everybody thought we were good enough to get to the final.â&#x20AC;? SOCCER TALK â&#x20AC;Ś Merriman was named the CCAAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coach of the Year at nationals and Jared Stephens was announced as a CCAA All-Canadian. Stephens and Stephen Ewashko were selected as tournament all-stars. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

For the Clippers to win the day on Friday, the flow of traffic in front of the creases will be key. The Clips’ goalie said the Capitals battle hard in front of the net, so he’ll be counting on his teammates to clear guys out of that area and keep the action in front of the Caps crease, instead.

Playoff-ready Redmen look to rein in Stamps MIDGET FOOTBALL team steps on gridiron after first-round bye.

I

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The regular season had its ups and downs for the Nanaimo Redmen. There were injuries, scoring slumps, wins and losses. “When you’re a good team, [you’ll] often find a way to win when you haven’t played your best and we didn’t do that as well this year as we would have liked and as a result it cost us a couple of positions in the standings,” said Sean Roden, coach of the Redmen. “But we’re all starting from scratch here now.” The Redmen (7-3) did enough to earn a first-round bye in the Vancouver Mainland Football League playoffs. Now, that bye week is behind them and they’re ready to face the Langley Stampeders (8-3) on Sunday (Nov. 20). The coach said dealing with adversity this fall means the Redmen are a battle-tested squad.

They’ve won and lost battles since they defeated the Stamps 21-7 way back in Week 1. “We were a better team then and we’ve both changed, but we believe we’re the better team now, too,” said Jordan Pugh, Redmen safety. Nanaimo and Langley have similar-looking personnel and playbooks, said Roden. “I think we match up well against them but I think that they probably think they match up well against us, too,” he said. “We both play smashmouth football, nothing really flashy from either team. So it’s going to be won in the trenches, for sure.” Especially in playoff-football conditions in the north end. The red team hopes it can pound the ball better than a Stamps team used to the firm footing of a turf field. “They’re not used to getting down in the muck as much as we are and with the weather, we’re supposed to have some pretty good rain and maybe even snow,” Roden said. “I’m looking forward to that, actually.” GAME ON … Sunday’s kickoff is slated for 2 p.m. at Pioneer Park. Admission is free. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

SNORING?

SLEEP APNEA?

Most snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (Government website). Millions suffer needlessly and most can stop their nightly ordeals first night. NPN #80027595.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS  For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is #23 heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.  Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing. Suzie Weigel, 60, Chattanooga, TN No need to make claims. Bell is using 100% truthful user testimonials and gives a refund guarantee.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President #1 We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONCancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QCOthers write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister. Hundreds more people on the Bell website.

FOR MEN GUARANTEED

Eroxil is the best of all the supplements for men I’ve tried. Boosts my sex drive and I’m able to function anytime. Angus Gutke, 45, Calgary, AB Regained virility in 3 days.

Dr. Louis Rolland, 72, St. Hyacinthe, QC Having orgasms off the Richter scale. It’s like I’m a teenager again. The world owes you big time.

TEAMS WIN North Island titles.

N a n a i m o ’s h i g h school volleyball teams are rising to the challenge of playoffs. The Dover Bay Dolphins senior AAAA girls and Cedar Spartans single-A girls won North Island championships this past weekend and will be among the favourites at Islands this coming weekend. Dover had homecourt advantage at North Islands and took advantage by going undefeated over its five matches, never dropping a set. The closest of the matches came Thursday night against the Frances Kelsey Breakers, a 25-16, 28-26 victory. The AAAA Island championships will be held in Victoria. Cedar’s girls were just as thorough at their North Island tournament at Campbell River. The Spartans won all seven of

their matches without dropping a set. The final saw Cedar handle its rival Duncan Christian by scores of 25-14, 25-17.

The result means the Spartans, hosts of the Island championships this Friday (Nov. 18) and Saturday, will be favoured to win again

and advance to provincials. Another team looking to advance is the Nanaimo District Islanders. There were no North Islands for senior AAA girls, so ND is jumping right into the Island championships this weekend in Courtenay. The team has been dealing with some injuries, said Kyla Nichol, one of the coaches, but other players have stepped up and every girl has a role. “All the girls have embraced those roles and have done really well with them, so this is the time where you want every person to shine,” Nichol said. “We have a lot of confidence in them.” We l l i n g t o n w i l l also compete at AAA Islands. Woodlands’ senior AA girls played a challenge game Wednesday after press time to try to advance to their Island tournament. Barsby’s senior AA girls have been eliminated from contention. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Islanders get serious as playoffs arrive

I

NDSS FOOTBALL meets Timberline, as always.

If the Nanaimo District Islanders are going to reach new heights this post-season, the ascent starts against a familiar foe. The NDSS Islanders and the

Timberline Wolves meet Friday (Nov. 18) in Tier 2 varsity football playoffs for the third straight autumn. ND eliminated Timberline last year and the Campbell River squad won the year before, so this week’s tilt is a rubber match. More importantly, it’s a win-or-go-home game. Coach Nate Stevenson said his players were showing

the right attitude at practice this week. “The fellas were quite serious about what’s going to take place on Friday,” Stevenson said. “The want and the discipline and the hunger in their eyes was definitely evident.” The Wolves have a hardthrowing quarterback and talented running back, but

the hard-hitting Isles have been keeping offences in check all season. “What we’re hoping to do [is] play our game, play some tough, physical ND football,” Stevenson said. GAME ON … The Islanders and Wolves kick off Friday at 12:30 p.m. at Nanaimo District Secondary School field. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Barsby Bulldogs love to tackle, so this week’s playoff matchup suits them just fine. John Barsby Community Secondary School’s AA varsity football team will take on Abbotsford Collegiate in the second round of the post-season on Friday (Nov. 18) at the University of British Columbia’s Thunderbird Stadium.

Barsby coach Rob Stevenson said Abby is a “super physical” team, and will have momentum, just like the ’Dawgs. “The next team not only won the right to be in the playoffs, but they won a playoff game, so that’s a hot team,” Stevenson said. The winner of F r i d ay ’s m a t c h u p advances to the provincial semifinals.

Experience the difference that Quality makes!

Outlander is the ‘jet fighter’ of SUVs MITSUBISHI vehicle mixes style, power.

I

BY NEIL MOORE

ntil the past few years, shopping for a compact SUV could be a real snoozer. Not that there was anything wrong with vehicles in the segment, but they shared the same unimaginative, trucky styling. Thanks to increased competition, today’s exteriors are more inspired, but none are more distinctive than the Mitsubishi Outlander. A makeover in 2010 gave this previously competent but bland SUV the company’s signature ‘jet fighter’ front end, borrowed from the rally-proven Lancer Evolution. This aggressive new treatment, with its large, blacked-out mesh grille, sharp hood creases and wedgeshaped projector-style headlamps is accompanied by a redesigned rear quarter panel fascia and door mirrors. But the changes are more than cosmetic. The XLS model, for example, now also benefits from an upgrade to Mitsubishi’s slip-andgrip 4WD system in the form of its super allwheel control. The Outlander has also received some tweaks to its available 3.0-litre V6 engine, boosting horsepower from 220 to 230, and with improved fuel economy. The current-generation model is nearly tied with the Lancer as

Mitsubishi’s top selling vehicle. Despite a relatively small dealer network, much of its sales success can be attributed to a competitive price point with plenty of standard features and available content. The ES 2WD base

model comes with a long list of standard items including power windows, keyless entry, air conditioning, heated front seats, 60/40 split fold/tumble second row, six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, multi-information display, privacy glass

and more. Outlander also gets a full suite of standard safety features such as four-wheel disc brakes with ABS and electronic brakeforce distribution, stability control, traction control and tirepressure monitoring.

Add 4WD and you also get hill start assist. Both ES models are powered by Mitsubishi’s 2.4L 16-valve, DOHC inline four-cylinder that provides 168hp, mated to a CVT transmission that can be shifted manually, if you so choose.

The LS trim level comes standard with 4WD and gets the more powerful 3.0L 24-valve SOHC V6 engine that delivers 230hp. Mated to Outlander’s V6 is a sixspeed automatic transmission. This smoothshifting unit comes with steering wheel paddle shifters in XLS trim. Move up to the XLS S-AWC and in addition to the LS features, you get automatic climate control, leather seating surfaces in the first and second rows, power driver’s seat, rain-sensing wipers, power sunroof and head-pounding sound system. Another big step up is the previously mentioned all-wheel control system. It can move torque from left to right and front to rear, depending on vehicle dynamics and road conditions. And making it more driver-friendly than typical 4WD systems is a three-position dial labelled ‘Tarmac,’ ‘Snow’ and ‘Lock.’ This system works seamlessly with the vehicle’s traction and stability control systems, cutting power or applying brakes at each wheel to help keep the Outlander on its intended path. During my week of testing, I had the opportunity to try it on all kinds of asphalt – wet, dry and snowy – and believe me, it works. I had expected the system to apply a heavy hand in the snow, but it wasn’t overly intrusive – even when giving a little extra throttle around turns. ◆ See ‘ALL’ /B16

Infiniti will park closer to key market Nissan has announced that Infiniti, its luxury brand, will locate its new global headquarters in Hong Kong. The move comes as Infiniti seeks to lift total global sales to 500,000 vehicles a year, as part of Nissan’s six-year mid-term business plan.

Infiniti’s growth strategy is expected to be driven partly by demand in China and other fastgrowing Asian markets, which the company says can be served more effectively in Hong Kong. Engineering and manufacturing branches will remain in Japan.

Buick LaCrosse refines its style When designers set out to capture the essence of Buick luxury for the LaCrosse GL concept vehicle, they looked to the fine cuisine, heirloom objects and enriching experiences the brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers savour. Buickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colour and trim designers worked from a palette of cabernet red, dark cocoa brown and caramel choccachino. They took inspiration from the burnished metal of antique jewellery, ombre patina on vintage guitars and flocked lining of keepsake boxes. The concept is on display this month in L.A.

â&#x2014;&#x2020; From /B9 Super all-wheel control also works on dry pavement in more spirited manoeuvres. The system applies brakes on the inside wheel during understeer and outer wheel during oversteer, and transfers torque where needed to improve cornering stability. Lean is minimal in the turns, and on the straighter stretches, Mitsuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprisingly responsive 3.0L V6 provides gutsy acceleration. And delivers it with a nice, raspy exhaust note. The vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crisp handling and good driving dynamics can also be attributed to a rigid unibody built on Mitsuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s global performance platform and sport-tuned suspension. The Outlanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maximum cargo capacity, at 2,056L, is competitive with other mid-size SUVs. With the compact third-row bench folded flat and the 60/40 second row tumbled forward, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of space for a couple of bikes or for your next big-box shopping trip.

upright, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a very usable 1,025L of space with a flat cargo floor. And with the flap-fold tailgate dropped (and hatch raised), loading is easy. The small tailgate can also serve as a seat, able to support 200 kilograms. The shallow depression where the seats are stowed contributes little space, unlike minivans and other SUVs that typically have a deep well behind the third row. But the Outlanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is less commodious for a reason. The rear seat is little more than fabric stretched over a steel frame, with little pop-up headrests. I would call this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;emergencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; third-row seating, unless you like riding with your knees under your chin. The Outlanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interior fit and finish is good â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on par with any of the segment leaders. It can be optioned up with a rear-view camera and other goodies. Overall, the Outlander has a lot to offer SUV buyers and provides a driving experience I would expect from a more premium product.

A FUN BOUQUET to Casino Nanaimo for their Monday night Ladies’ Night. This week I had my nails “blinged”, a giant appy and a beverage for $15 – best deal in town! I can’t wait to see what’s coming up next. A HUGE BOUQUET OF CRUISE TICKETS AND YELLOW ROSES to Terri at Expedia CruiseShipCentres for going above and beyond, helping and caring.You are No. 1. A HUGE THANK YOU BOUQUET to the Nanaimo Fire Rescue Station 3 fire chief who stopped on his dinner break to help with an injured owl on Vista View Crescent. Your time making phone calls to have the owl rescued was greatly appreciated by us. I’m sure the owl feels the same. A BOUQUET OF YELLOW ROSES to Franca at the Departure Bay ferry terminal. Thank you for going out of your way to help me through the confusion of my medical transportation over to Vancouver. It’s people like you who put a smile on other people’s faces. Because of you, I will have a better long weekend. Your kindness will always be remembered. BOUQUETS to the Stewart Avenue family that decorates and brightens the neighbourhood during all seasons. A BOUQUET OF DOGGY BONES to the staff at Dog n’ Suds for having all your staff trained in Dogsafe K9 First Aid. You are clearly the daycare of choice when it comes to looking after everyone’s dogs.

A NICE CLEAN GARBAGE CAN to the worker who put our garbage can back on the grass after my last beef. We really appreciate it. Keep up the good work. A HUGE, FRAGRANT BOUQUET OF SWEETPEAS to Nanaimo Dive Outfitters and all the participants and prize donors in the Great Pumpkin Dive held recently at Neck Point Park to raise funds for the Kidney Foundation. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

BOUQUETS OF SHARP HEALING NEEDLES to Clayton Willoughby of Island Community Acupuncture. My doctor told me there is no effective treatment for tinnitus. Clayton manages to control that and another stubborn condition that defies conventional treatment. Ahhh relief. A HUGE BOUQUET to the person who turned in my calender and personal papers at the north end Shoppers Drug Mart. GARDEN BOUQUETS to our hospice volunteer – she has been a “Rae” of sunshine in our lives. A BOUQUET OF FORGET-MENOTS to Jan, our home care nurse, for all the coaching and support over the last few stressful weeks. A CARING BOUQUET to Dr. N. Schulson. You are the greatest doctor one could ever have. Thank you for going above and beyond the line of duty. A BIG THANK YOU to the Rutherford Dental Centre for donating dental hygiene items to the ICCS.

bouquets HUGE BOUQUETS to the members of the Nanaimo Concert Band for the wonderful concert at the Port Theatre last weekend. They truly are incredible musicians. The drummer is a star. In fact, they all are and they deserve accolades for their brilliant performance.

an excellent repair job by a polite young man. A GOLD BOUQUET OF ROSES to Bill at Bastion Jewellers for checking my old Harley watch battery. It’s working and not missed a second yet.

A VERY BIG THANK YOU to Shane Moscrip from ABC Precast for his generous surprise to three couples at the Keg one recent Saturday. We were blown away by your thoughtfulness and wanted to say thanks. We will never forget what you did for us and neither will our stomachs.

A BEEF to the lady who recently sent out the mass e-mail telling us who to vote for in this upcoming municipal election and to forward the e-mail to everyone we know. Isn’t this our right, to make our own choices when voting? Shame on you for trying to take this away. I hope that people make their own choices when voting this weekend.

THIRTY-SIX BIG HUGS to A-Line Roofing Company for the awesome job making our new roof. We lived for almost four years with a tarp and many leaks. Now we are safe and dry. Hugs from the staff.

A COW-SIZED BEEF to the Nanaimo RCMP. At least once a week you set up speed traps and seat belt checks in front of my house. That would not normally be an issue except for the fact that you block my driveway every time. I am unable to leave or come back to my house because you never move when I need in/out.

A HUGE BOUQUET OF CELLPHONES to Jeff at Rogers at Nanaimo North Town Centre. You have been a tremendous help every time we have gone in there (especially lately with all the issues with our daughter’s cell). We appreciate your knowledge, patience and smiling face.

A STINKY BEEF to the person who complained about their family’s cat being killed by a car. I hardly think you would put a family member out on the streets who may be scared and apparently with no street sense. The reality is you need to blame someone else.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Jacob Lajennesse of Alpha Doors LTD for repairing our broken garage doors on very short notice. A great firm and

A NOSY BEEF to my neighbour, who threatened to have my brother’s truck towed last week. He cannot sell it if people cannot see it. Since you pounced on me the day after the plates came off, it’s obvious you’ve had a problem with us for a while. Act your age. BEEFS to all customers who come into a store and expect immediate service, budging in front of customers who are already being served. These are pushy and selfish people and I suspect they are not even aware of their lack of manners. Professional service is on a firstcome, first-serve basis and people need to be patient, pay attention and wait their turn. A HUGE BEEF to the newspaper carrier who only delivers a paper sometimes to our north Nanaimo home. We expect it and want it every time it is published. A BEEF to those who want a holiday weekend in February and want to get rid of Thanksgiving to do so. B.C. Day came about simply because we didn’t have a holiday in August. I don’t think religious holidays should be tampered with for our conveniences. I know most people think Thanksgiving was invented so we could have three straight days of football, but it’s a religious holiday. We’ve gotten along quite nicely up to now without a February holiday, and I’m sure we’ll continue to survive without one. A HUGE BEEF to the lady in the parking lot in Ladysmith who told my daughter she should be ashamed of herself for parking in a disabled spot. My daughter has been battling cancer and she is weak. Just because she’s young, you assumed she was just taking up a space. You should be ashamed of yourself. You really upset her. She’d like nothing more than to be able to walk. A SCRAPPY BEEF to my northend neighbour who has a shipping container parked in his front yard. Please clean up your yard, I’m tired of staring at the mess. Another beef to the city for spineless bylaws.

McNAB,, Barbara Viola

(nee Kuepfer) September 25, 1924 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; October 27, 2011 Barbara Viola McNab passed away peacefully at her home on October 27, 2011 surrounded by family. She was born on September 25, 1924 in Hutchinson, Kansas. Barbara is survived by her children James (Jayne), Philip (Trish), Lorilee, Carla, and daughter-in-law Diane of Ontario; Archie (Sigrid), Murray, Bruce, Ross, Bonnie and Jessie (Stan) of Vancouver Island. She had 30 grandchildren, 28 great- grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandchildren. She is predeceased by husbands Leslie Nau and Archie McNab, son Robert Nau, daughter-in-law Carol McNab, granddaughter Mareena and great-granddaughter Katrina. Mom moved from Kansas to Ontario at the age of 16. She and Dad moved to BC in the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and they purchased the farm in Yellow Point in 1960. Through hard work and perseverance, they raised 6 children there and built a reputation on growing sweet corn. Even with all the work to do, Mom always made time for others. She loved children and they loved her. She had a way of ďŹ nding something good in everyone. Anyone who met Mom never forgot her and she never forgot them. Mom was an avid knitter; quilter and she also enjoyed crocheting. She knit hundreds of pairs of socks for children who were in the hospital during the last 20 years of her life. Mom loved going for walks and was a familiar sight walking in the Yellow Point area. For a lady who never drove or joined any groups or organizations, she touched the lives of many people. Mom had an amazing inner strength that kept her going despite numerous health restrictions. She never complained of what she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to do, but instead embraced what she was still capable of doing. The family would like to thank their friends and the community for their love and support. They would also like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Zuccaro for caring for Mom. Flowers are gratefully declined. Donations may be made in memory of Mom to the Nanaimo Hospital Foundation. No service by request. A gathering will be held at the McNab Farm in May, date and time to be announced later.

Garry, a resident of Nanaimo, passed away at Stanford Place, Parksville, BC on November 13, 2011 at the age of 77 years. Survived by his wife of 38 years, y , Valerie;; sons: Craig g (Sue), ( ), Kenneth,, Kirk, stepson Mark; also grandson, Brent and two sisters, Bette Anderson and Joyce Wilson. Garry spent 22 years with the RCAF and 26 years at London Drugs Warehouse in Richmond, BC. Garry was a gentle and caring man who loved sports on TV and playing cards with friends at the Legion. No service by request. Cremation. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations to the SPCA would be appreciated.

THIS CLOSE We’re very close to a historic moment. Thousands of Licensed Practical Nurses in BC have signed up with BCNU. With a few more signatures, we’ll unite the nursing profession. Then healthcare will improve and practice conditions will advance.

– and being seen – is crucial to one’s safety. So Auto Check, at Unit J 11 Cliff St., is aiming headlights toward safety and charity. For minimum donation of $20, Auto Check will align a vehicle’s headlights and donate the proceeds to Haven Society and Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank. For best results, a vehicle’s gas tank should be at least half full. The fundraiser takes place Saturday (Nov. 19) and Nov. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, please e-mail karen@autocheckca.
