New hospital deal aims for cleanliness

Contract adds more cleaning staff at NRGH, better monitoring of work BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Rick Anderson, left, jots down information as Gary Barbero tries to scrub a graffiti tag off a Canada Post box on Selby Street. The Downtown Community Policing volunteers, out making their rounds through the Old City Quarter Monday morning, said there is less graffiti than there used to be and it is easier to clean up, thanks to new coatings on fixtures and buildings.

TTourism kiosk planned at parkway rest stop BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

A long-awaited visitor information centre off the Nanaimo Parkway is a step closer to opening this spring. The tourism kiosk, a replacement

for the visitor centre at Beban House which closed its doors in mid-December, will be built at the Rotary rest area off the parkway at Northfield Road. “I’ve been here five and a half years and there has always been a discus-

sion of moving the tourism kiosk at Beban House to a higher profile location with better access,” said Ian Howat, city director of strategic relationships. “And there has always been a desire to have it on the parkway.” ◆ See ‘EXISTING’ /6

Increased cleaning services, more staff and additional auditing tools will help fight infection outbreaks at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. The Vancouver Island Health Authority signed a new contract Compass Group Canada for housekeeping services at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and Dufferin Place residential care facility. The health authority announced it was looking for a new cleaning contractor in May 2010, but has stayed with Compass, which will provide cleaning through its Crothall Services Canada division. WorkSafe B.C. inspections in recent years found Compass in violation of various health and safety standards at NRGH, which had several outbreaks of Clostridium difficile in recent years. A B.C. Centre for Disease Control report about the first C. diff outbreak at NRGH, which lasted from July 2008 to May 2009, found insufficient cleaning staff to meet the daily needs of the facility and inadequate training. Murray Hutchison, VIHA’s corporate director for general support services, said the health authority has made a “considerable investment” to increase cleaning standards. The former contract with Compass was about $8.2 million per year; the new contract amounts to $10.6 million per year for the next five years. Hutchison said the cost difference is mainly due to increased staff – full-time cleaners in Nanaimo will go from almost 86 to more than 98 with the new deal, or almost 13 new positions. ◆ See ‘OUTBREAKS’ /6

Double-transplant recipient grateful

Last April, Deborah’s liver had deteriorated to the point that doctors put her on the critical list for a transplant. She got the call in July and had the operation at Vancouver General Hospital hours later.

BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

F

ive months ago, Deborah Graves lay dying in a Vancouver hospital. Her liver was shutting down, she had lost a dramatic amount of weight because she was too nauseous to eat and her body felt like it was on fire and numb at the same time. In moments of lucidity, she was aware of the sadness in the eyes of loved ones surrounding her, but she was often unaware of her dire situation due to heavy doses of pain medication. Thanks to a team of dedicated medical professionals – and someone’s decision to sign up as an organ donor – Deborah, 51, is alive and feeling better than she has in years. She and husband Mike want to thank everyone, from the medical professionals to people around the world who prayed for her as she underwent two liver transplants last summer. “I am so thankful about how many people were so intimately involved,” said Deborah, who is still running into strangers who come up and tell her they prayed for her throughout her ordeal last summer. “She basically could have died two or three times throughout this process,” said Mike. “There were times she was barely hanging on and [the medical staff] just didn’t stop. We can’t thank them enough.” eborah was in good health D until a couple years after moving to Nanaimo from South Africa

in 1997 to start Oceanside Church International on Jingle Pot Road. Doctors attributed her health issues to stress and other conditions and it wasn’t until 2005, when she got extremely ill after a trip back to South Africa, that they discovered her liver was failing. The cause of her liver disease was pegged as a water-borne parasite found in Africa. For more than five years, Deborah was in and out of hospital and often lethargic. For the past two years, she lived mainly on nutritional shakes due to digestion problems. “Her eyes were yellow,” said Mike. “There were days she couldn’t get out of bed.”

hings were fine for several T days, but then Deborah’s body rejected the organ. She had a sec-

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Mike and Deborah Graves are grateful to B.C.’s medical system. Deborah received two liver transplants, which ultimately saved her life after her liver was severely damaged by a parasite.

Organ donors save lives Deborah Graves is alive and well today because someone made the decision to become an organ donor. Her husband Mike said the couple wants to get more actively involved in promoting organ donation registry. While it might feel weird to some people to plan for what happens after death, Mike said one person’s decision to become an organ donor can save the lives of multiple people. Deborah said people can wait for months for a transplant and her family feared that in her case that the availability of a liver would come too late. “If I didn’t have the transplant, I wouldn’t be here,” she said. B.C. Transplant’s website states there are more than 300 British Columbians currently awaiting organ transplants – including two dozen people awaiting new livers – and that the need far outweighs the number of organs available for transplant.

Teachers refuse to supervise B.C. exams BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

expected – and she’s been on the mend ever since. While she will be on immune system suppressants for the rest of her life to prevent organ rejection, Deborah says it is a small price to pay for her return to health – she has a healthy glow to her cheeks again and she’s enjoying all kinds of foods that she couldn’t eat in the last few years of her illness, such as hamburgers.

Teachers will skip exam supervision due to ongoing job action. Derek DeGear, president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, said similar to playground supervision duties, teachers will not supervise provincially mandated exams. “It is job action – we aren’t doing it,” he said. But teachers will step in if needed, DeGear added. “If there’s a difference between an exam occurring or not occurring, we’ll definitely be bringing the teachers to supervise, but it’s on an emergency basis,” he said. In the past, principals and vice-principals handled some exam supervision duties alongside teachers, so the main difference this year is that senior managers and district staff will have to travel to the school to carry out these duties in place of teachers, said DeGear. Chris Southwick, assistant superintendent, said district staff will cover all of the exams, but it will take away from each staff member’s regular duties. Donna Reimer, school district spokeswoman, said secondary exams take place Jan. 24-27 and 30 district staff members will head out to schools. Elementary schools have between Jan. 16 and Feb. 24 to administer the Foundation Skills Assessments and principals might be able to do this without bringing in senior managers to help.

ond transplant several weeks later, but needed a third surgery to stop internal bleeding. “The doctors said to me in between the two operations that her liver is shutting down and they didn’t have another liver and if they did, they didn’t know if it would work,” Mike said. “But they never gave up. I was hoping they wouldn’t and praying they wouldn’t. It was just a thing of trusting God.” The hospital staff allowed the family to bring one important milestone to her. At the beginning of September, her daughter Michal was supposed to get married in Nanaimo, with a pre-booked honeymoon following right after. Since Deborah was still in hospital, staff allowed the young couple to get married on a terrace at VGH so that mom could participate in the big day. Family and friends – as well as the media – showed up for the unusual wedding. Two weeks before the ceremony, Michal was preparing herself for her mother’s imminent death – she watched a normally bubbly woman who did her best to hide her illness from others start to literally waste away before her eyes. “When my mom came out of hospital, that’s when I had a bit of a meltdown,” said Michal. “It’s still kind of surreal that she’s actually OK.” eborah was released from hosD pital about a week and a half after the wedding – sooner than

‘White team’ targets drugs I MOUNTIES PUT new emphasis on dealers trading in powders. BY CHRIS BUSH

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Mounties unleashed the newly formed White Team on drug dealers who trade specifically in powdered drugs. The team is a specialized enforcement unit created to tackle the distribution and sale of heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine and crystal methamphetamine in Nanaimo. It made its debut Wednesday at about 7:30 p.m. when team members netted several ounces of cocaine, plus stolen wallets and identification, along with two suspects at an apartment in the 400 block of Third Street. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said one wallet was stolen from the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre Nov. 3 and other wallets and pieces of stolen identification were taken during vehicle break-ins over the past several months. Reginald Butler, 27, and a 25-year-old woman were arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of stolen property. Butler was held in custody

following a bail hearing in Nanaimo provincial court Thursday. The female suspect was released on a promise to appear in Nanaimo provincial court Feb. 21. “The White Team was created to deal with street level drug dealers in Nanaimo who are actively involved in the drug culture,� O’Brien said. The winter months tend to be less busy, freeing members from the regular duties for special projects such as the White Team, which will augment the capabilities of the municipal drug squad. The team is made up of six general duty, traffic and plain clothes officers who are led by two senior members. “They will develop skills in surveillance, cultivate criminal informants and write search warrants,� O’Brien said. “It’s the same mandate as the Green Team, except the Green Team targets marijuana grow ops.� Projects like this offer opportunities for members to develop new skills and versatility as police officers, O’Brien said. It was a traffic member who wrote the warrant for Wednesday’s search. The White Team is designed to be effective against a large number of suspects over a

short period of time, unlike the municipal drug squad, which focuses on more extensive investigations that can last several months. “This will, on a daily basis, target different individuals,� O’Brien said. “They’re not long-term investigations. We’re filling in a void that hasn’t been targeted.� O’Brien said there needs to be a focus placed on powdered drugs, which are an issue in every community. Drug-related crime works its way through communities in waves as new drug come on the market. Cocaine, crack cocaine and heroin have long been staples of the drug trade along with ecstasy. More recent drugs, such as crystal methamphetamine, which O’Brien said is the current drug of choice in Nanaimo, are particularly dangerous. “They’re cheap, they’re highly addictive and they’re devastating,� he said. The team has a list of dozens of suspects it plans to target aggressively over the next several months until it disbands, the team members return to their regular units and the detachment reviews the team’s performance and effectiveness. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

spokesman, said the union would prefer the health authority resume direct control of cleaning services, as opposed to contracting out, but it is good news that the provider will not change. “If they had flipped the contract to another company, it would have meant a lot of disrup-

tion and anxiety for our members,” he said. “The other important thing is the health authority has acknowledged that there has been a staffing shortage. There hasn’t been enough staff to adequately clean the hospital over the past few years.” reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Existing shelter to be closed in for new building ◆ From /1 The project was approved by city council during the 2011 budget process, but time was needed for grant applications. The city received a $155,000 grant from the Island Coastal Economic Trust. A cost estimate on the project came in at $500,000, but Howat hopes construction bids will come in lower. “A lot of the structural components are already there,” he said. “The picnic area will be enclosed, the washrooms upgraded and heated and there will be a couple of offices, counter space and display racks.” Howat said bid packages are ready and the goal is for an opening on the May long weekend.

VIU pen recycling helps environment, fundraising BY BRUCE PATTERSON

The pen may be mightier than the sword but when it’s used up, it tends to be just more trash destined for the landfill. Vancouver Island University is working with one of its major suppliers to collect and recycle pens, markers and other writing instruments. “The university purchased 16,000 pens, markers and whiteboard markers from Grand and Toy last year,” said Margot Croft of Environment and Sustainability, Infrastructure and Ancillary Services at VIU. Collection boxes will be placed near the Bookstore entrance and by the Welcome Centre near the main cafeteria at the Nanaimo campus. Croft says other locations are being considered. The pens and markers will be recycled or “upcycled” into products such as tote bags, shower curtains and purses through technology developed by TerraCycle, an international eco-products company. The recycling program, called The Write Path to a Healthier Environment, offers an added bonus for the university, says Croft. For each recycled Sharpie, uni-ball, Paper Mate, and Expo writing instrument, two cents will be donated to the VIU Foundation through a partnership of Grand and Toy, Newell Rubbermaid Office Products and TerraCycle.

LEADERSHIP HOPEFUL brings NDP bid to city for meet-and-greet. BY RACHEL STERN

RCMP credit re-enactment for charges in assault case

THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY CHRIS BUSH

THE NEWS BULLETIN

Tom Mulcair wants to build a more sustainable future for Canada as the next leader of the federal NDP. The leadership candidate visited Nanaimo Saturday to discuss his political platform at the Nanaimo Museum. Creating a sustainable development is a key platform issue for Mulcair, who spoke to about 50 people. “We can’t continue to do what we are doing,” he said. “We’re leaving future generations to clean up soil that is being fouled.” Principles of sustainable development are important for Canada, because current policies are negatively affecting the environment, and social and economic aspects of the country, Mulcair said. Canada has great opportunities for green energy development, especially wind power, because Canada has some of the “most consistent wind currents in the world”, he added. In order for the NDP to win more seats, the party has to talk to people who share “our soul and vision who didn’t vote for us,” Mulcair said. He said the party has to put forward a platform that “respects fundamentally” who the NDP are, but appeals to more Canadians. That means the party has to go back to the drawing board and create poli-

FALCON

B.C. finance minister visits The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce and Vancouver Island Real Estate Board are teaming up to host the province’s top financial officer. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon will be at the Newcastle Island lobby at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre at 10 a.m. on Friday (Jan. 13). There is no charge to attend the reception and the public is welcome, but the chamber requires registration to attend by calling 250756-1191.

Nanaimo seeks budget input Nanaimo city council and senior staff will host three special meetings over the next week to allow for provisional budget discussions. Meetings will be held today (Jan. 10) at 1:30 p.m., Jan. 16 at 3 p.m. and Jan. 17 at 1:30 p.m. All meetings will be held in the boardroom at city hall. The public is welcome to attend. The $160-million budget is in the public consultation/council deliberation stage. Nanaimo residents will also be able to address budget concerns or comments at regularly scheduled council meetings until the end of February.

cies that resonate with Canadians and choose its priorities, understanding that the NDP can’t accomplish everything it wants at once, he added. “We have to become the light that people can go to and say, ‘I have confidence in you’,” said Mulcair. “We are going to be there to make our dreams a reality for Canadians.” Lorraine Erickson, who travelled from Victoria to volunteer at the event, said Mulcair is a politician who is doing something for Canadians. “He is focused, he is thoughtful and he has a strong background trying to expand the NDP vision to include practical common sense

goals for the future,” said Erickson. Colin Pacholuk, who attended the event, said Mulcair was one of the front runners for him when the leadership race began. “He was honest and straightforward,” said Pacholuk. “If he didn’t know the answer he didn’t try to make up an answer for it.” Mulcair is the fourth NDP leadership hopeful to visit Nanaimo. Nathan Cullen, Brian Topp and Peggy Nash previously visited the city. Cullen was also in town again Saturday evening. The NDP leadership vote is March 24. Each member of the federal party will be eligible to vote. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

Three charged after elderly man beaten A brutal attack in broad daylight at a busy downtown park has left one man in hospital and three people facing assault charges. A 74-year-old man was approached by three men at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday at Maffeo Sutton Park. The victim was asked by one of the attackers for a cigarette. After informing him he did not smoke, he continued walking along a path that led under Pearson Bridge. The three men followed him, demanded his wallet

then knocked him to the ground from behind and repeatedly punched and kicked him. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said the assault only ceased when a nearby pedestrian heard his screams and yelled at the attackers to stop. “This was a cowardly, senseless act,” said O’Brien. “The victim had less than $30 in his pocket and may require months of rehabilitation to fully recover from his ordeal.” The Good Samaritan

called 911 and stayed with the victim until police and paramedics arrived. The victim was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and underwent emergency surgery for a broken shoulder. Based on descriptions of the attackers by witnesses, two of the assailants, ages 17 and 18, were arrested about 20 minutes later by police near Townsite Road and Holly Avenue. A third suspect, 18, was arrested several hours later at his home in the 200 block of Haliburton Street.

Cousins Joshua Prince and Keith Prince, both 18, were both charged with robbery and assault causing bodily harm. Joshua Prince was released on a recognizance and returns to court Jan. 17. Keith Prince was held in custody. The third suspect, 17, cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. He was also charged with robbery and assault causing bodily harm and was held in custody, appearing in court Monday.

Police are crediting a Crime Stoppers re-enactment with helping identify a suspect in the beating and robbery of a woman in a Nanaimo alley last summer. Christopher Douglas Bartos, 19, appeared in Nanaimo provincial court Dec. 20 where he was handed a nine-month sentence for assaulting and robbing a 23-year-old-woman Aug. 5. The victim was walking to work about 8:30 a.m. in an alley between Ashlar and Howard avenues when Bartos allegedly approached and asked for a cigarette. As she was rolling a cigarette for him, Bartos hit her in the head with a hard object and kicked her repeatedly once she was on the ground before he grabbed her tobacco and ran off. Police initially had no suspect for the crime, but investigators got a break when Bartos turned himself in to Nanaimo RCMP Aug. 15 over an unrelated Canada-wide warrant for breaching his parole. While in Edmonton, Alberta, in 2010, Bartos was convicted of assault with a weapon, escaping lawful custody and robbery. He was paroled in early 2011, but breached parole by coming to Nanaimo instead of staying at a halfway house in Edmonton. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said Bartos’s name came up early in the investigation, but police had insufficient grounds to arrest him for the robbery. Police followed up with a Shaw TV Crime Stoppers reenactment which was broadcast in September. “It’s because of the media exposure and the Crime Stoppers re-enactment that further information came to light and we were able to substantiate the charge against him,” O’Brien said. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Real estate a sensible buyy

A lot of numbers get trotted out every year at this time as the assessment authority releases its annual evaluation of the price of property around the province. We’re given an astronomical dollar amount representing the total worth of so many theoretical average homes. Of course, for most of us, any number in the billions is as useful as the number of stars in the sky and grains of sand at the beach. Perhaps the best thing we can take away from B.C. Assessment’s latest statistics is that Vancouver Island is a solid place to invest in for individuals, families and people looking to do business here. Buying a home for the vast majority of people should be first and foremost about having a place to live. It is the single biggest expenditure most people will ever make, especially for those of us living in B.C.’s southwest. And while housing prices here are exceptionally high, there is some comfort in knowing our region has a few exceptional factors in its favour. Over the last few decades, property values here have risen dramatically, dipped slightly and stayed relatively flat for extended periods of time. The latest figures from B.C. Assessment seem to confirm that homeownership is a relatively stable place to put your money. That said, there are warning signs emerging that real estate across the country is showing signs of a classic bubble, according to a December report by economists with the Bank of America Merrill Lynch. It should concern anyone thinking they can continue to reap huge profits by flipping properties. However, for the majority who are not land speculators, the long-term ownership of a home continues to be a sound investment.

Also, trying to find an invisible dragon terrorizing the countryside is challenging. Player forums have reported other problems such as the game constantly crashing. I’m not sure if that is a hardware problem the player has or programing glitches, as it hasn’t happened to me. Downsides for character development includes my avatar’s hairstyle leaving much to be desired – helmets are good to protect the noggin and ensure you don’t look like a dork. So far I haven’t found many cool, colourful robes that make you feel awesome. Unlike the heavy armor wearers who can craft ebony and glass armor and look really cool, the light armor folks are left with the dregs they loot off monsters. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

Tuesday, January 10, 2012 Nanaimo News Bulletin

Layoffs will disrupt residents’ lives To the Editor, Re: Nearly 180 health-care workers facing layoffs, Jan. 5. Here we go again, disrupting the lives of our seniors. I blame Bill 29 for this. Sharon Henderson, spokeswoman for Chartwell Seniors’ Housing REIT, says there will be no disruptions to residents. Bonnie Pearson Hospital Employees’ Union representative says differently. As does Leonard Krog, Nanaimo NDP MLA. I worked in a long-term care facility as it was called then, as a nursing assistant and know there are many residents who do not have family and no one comes to see them, so they develop friendships with the staff. Some come from other areas of the country to be close to family and going to a facility, if they haven’t been in one before is very stressful. If they lived alone they aren’t used to so many people being around them, and often find routines difficult to adjust to. Chartwell says the

decision to lay off staff was difficult and will ensure Malaspina Gardens is “a viable candidate for redevelopment in conjunction with Vancouver Island Health Authority”. Valerie Wilson of VIHA denies this. So what does “redevelopment” mean? My mother-in-law lived at Malaspina Gardens after she had a stroke and my husband and I can’t say enough about the excellent care she received right up until she passed away. They are wonderful, compassionate people and I wish them all the best in the future. Theresa Kowall Ladysmith

Discarding loyal workers a tragedy To the Editor, Re: Nearly 180 health-care workers facing layoffs, Jan. 5. I came to Malaspina Lodge in 1987 as a practical nursing student. My instructor at the time told me Malaspina Lodge had the worst building, the lowest wages and the best

staff in town. A few months later, I graduated and became a proud member of the Malaspina team until my retirement last year. I consider it an absolute tragedy that these same excellent people are so casually being discarded. Is this the reward they get

for all their hard work and loyalty? Year after year, these folks have consistently dealt with some challenging residents and made it work. Less challenging residents who were waitlisted for so-called “better facilities” have frequently changed their minds and stayed when their names came up. They did not choose to stay because of the building, they stayed because of the staff. That staff, for years, has been family to those who had none and they have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make the residents’ lives more pleasant. Is there not another way to finance an upgrade of the old building than to punish these excellent people and their families? Or is this upgrade just an excuse to contract out 177 jobs and put more money in Chartwell’s pockets? Gordon Campbell may be gone but his legacy remains. Only in this case, the orders come from Ontario. Premier Christy Clark claims to speak for B.C. families. So speak. Vivian Johnson Nanaimo

Readers respond: Feedback on legalizing marijuana Prohibitionists losing legal debate To the Editor, Re: Legalizing pot isn’t appropriate answer, Letters, Jan. 7. The prohibitionists arguments against legalizing and regulating cannabis, as seen in Raegan Eisfeld’s letter, have become laughable. We have seen prohibitionists try scare tactics (reefer madness), puritan ethics (just say no), totally unscientific claims (cannabis is addictive and is a gateway drug) and outright oppression through imprisoning fellow citizens whose ‘crime’ hurt no one else, including themselves. Now we see a final frontier of the truly desperate in their losing struggle: legalizing cannabis won’t hurt gangs as they will find something else to do. This argument is patently ridiculous. Cannabis is an easy-toproduce, easy-to-move, and easy-to-sell drug with a huge North American market. In other words, it is the light, sweet, crude oil of the drug world with low investment, low risk, high return. Removing this easiest source of income from gangs

will drastically impact their financial capacities. Eisfeld then asks whether we should legalize all activities the police cannot combat. The answer is no, and her ignorance is abundantly clear. Cannabis should be legalized because it is relatively harmless and is a potent and effective natural medicine. Comparisons to B&E and rape are offensive, especially to those who suffer in jail for imbibing a plant, and those who have suffered through the violation of having their home or body invaded. Whelm King Lantzville

Evidence shows pot has medical benefits To the Editor, Re: Legalizing pot isn’t appropriate answer, Letters, Jan. 7. I think Raegan Eisfeld really needs to rethink the strategy in comparing legalizing marijuana to legalizing B&Es and rape. I find it offensive that this person would write a letter with this message. They have obviously not experienced two things: smoking weed and getting raped. There is outstanding evidence that pot can help

people who are in the most need of it. Cancer paitents who otherwise cannot eat. Multiple sclerosis patients who cannot operate without painkillers that attack your liver and kidneys, putting even more strain on our already overloaded healthcare system. All you have to do is look at California for a scale of how medical marijuana works once it is lealized and regulated. The tax money alone is invaluable – so long as it goes either back into the healthcare system or our school system. Shocking isn’t it, how such a bad thing can have such positive benefits to all of the community? If Eisfeld ever had any experience with gangs, drugs and violence, she would know that 90 per cent of the gangs involved in heroin and crack sales will rarley bother with selling weed. I remind her that heroin in its many forms is widely used as painkillers. I don’t see her protesting cancer patients and herion addicts for using oxycontins. Nor do I see her petitioning the pharmaceutical companies to stop manufacturing opiates, which are 85 per cent more addictive. Ashley Suggett Nanaimo

Marijuana laws harmful to society To the Editor, Re: Legalizing pot isn’t appropriate answer, Letters, Jan. 7. Raegan Eisfeld believes the current marijuana laws are not working. She’s correct. She does not believe in decriminalization or legalization though, and gives no other options. Criminals are going to be around no matter what the consequences, that’s not the point. The point is that young people are being saddled with a criminal record for a harmless drug. Comparing B&Es to possession of marijuana is a ridiculous example. There is no victim to someone smoking marijuana in their own home. As far as a marijuana skin patch goes, there are thousands of compounds in marijuana, that are difficult to reproduce artificially. As far as inhaling marijuana goes, there has never been a case of cancer attributed to smoking marijuana. Oppositely, there is plenty of evidence that marijuana shrinks cancerous tumors.

Eliza Smith navigates the music industry, releasing her first album next month BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

N

othing will knock Eliza Smith from her path to a career in music. Not riots outside her Bangkok hotel and definitely not anyone who tells her to give up. The Gabriola-raised singer was always singing to her parents’ records, from Bob Dylan to Anne Murray. “Nothing that I would listen to now,” she said. The youngest of six children, Smith would listen to her older siblings’ albums, which was where her love of R&B came from. She left a tape in her VCR to record her favourite songs whenever they came on MuchMusic. At 13, a friend entered her into a singing competition, which was when she decided that music was what she wanted for her career. She started singing lessons, working at a burger joint to pay for them. Her brother, Stephen, was her biggest supporter. “I was really shy,” she said. “I would only sing for him.” Stephen was killed at a house party in Nanaimo in May 2003. Family and friends decided to build a skate park on Gabriola in

his memory and Eliza Smith organized a benefit concert to raise money. It was her first big performance. “I was shaking so much I could hear it in the microphone,” she said. Surviving such grief at her brother’s death gave Smith the resolve to pursue music, despite having few contacts within the industry. “If I gave up on music, it was like I was giving up on him,” Smith said. She started at the bottom, singing with other bands and performing when she could, all the while writing and recording demos of her original music. She was featured in a Best of B.C. segment on Virgin radio and opened for Canadian singer Jully Black and Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon. Her latest song, Right Now, features Vancouver rapper Snak the Ripper and is receiving radio play in that city. Right Now is off her first full-length album Born Knowing, which will be out next month. The album follows a whirlwind tour of Asia with a Top 40 cover band, which saw the singer performing with musicians who grew up with gospel music. “Their vocals were insane,” she said. ◆ See ‘LESSONS’ /20

Eliza Smith knew that her life would involve music, which is why the former Gabriola resident called her first full-length album Born Knowing.

Lessons learned on tour ◆ From /19 After four months in Indonesia, working six days a week, Smith and the band headed to Thailand, just as pro-democracy riots broke out in Bangkok. For three weeks, they couldn’t leave the hotel. “I was eating dinner at night and I could hear bombs going off,” she said. Once the riots ended, the band was able to get back to work, beginning with vocals and choreography in the morning, sound check in the afternoon, and performances which ran from 9:30 p.m. to about 2:30 a.m. or later.

They did that six days a week, for three months. While the rock star lifestyle was fun for a bit – Smith would get bombarded with autograph seekers and some simply exclaiming, “You look like Barbie!” – the tightly controlled atmosphere is not what she envisions for her career. Smith wants to do it her way, which is how she’s done it all along. For more information on the release date of her new album, please visit her Facebook page or follow her on Twitter @elizasmithmusic. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Superball ends with super finale I

HOST WELLINGTON teams win in both girls’ and boys’ play. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Wellington Wildcats won Superball, in a game as intense as it gets in exhibition basketball. The school’s senior AA boys’ team got past the D.W. Poppy Redhawks on Saturday afternoon at the Wellington Secondary School gym 87-85, but needed triple overtime to do it. A foot-stomping, snare-drumming crowd helped inspire the home team to victory. “It was pretty intense,” said Wildcats post player Aaron Copley, who scored a game-high 36 points. “The crowd really helped us to get this win.” After the ’Cats led most of the second half of the game, Poppy pulled ahead late. Cole Musto hit a game-tying shot with 30 seconds left to force overtime. In OT, Wellington’s offence slowed, but strong defence gave them a chance. Elijah Thornton made a steal with five seconds left in triple OT to deny the Redhawks a final shot. “[We were] playing hard D,” Copley said. “If we shut them down on defence, offence will just come naturally.” Brad Jenks scored 17 points, Till Inkmann added 14 and Dustin Olsen contributed 11. Poppy made the Wildcats work for every basket. “It shows that we can beat really good teams, because Poppy is a really good team,” said Copley. “This is a step forward for us.” Also participating in Superball were the Cedar Spartans senior AA boys, who lost in overtime to the Ladysmith 49ers in the fifth-

place game Saturday. Cedar’s first game at the tourney was an 85-63 loss to the Ballenas Whalers. Jake Crow scored 21 points in that one, with Justin Engevik scoring 17.

The girls’ side of the draw at Superball saw the Wellington Wildcats go undefeated to win. One team pulled out of the tournament at the last minute, so the ’Cats senior AA girls played on

both halves of their draw, tying themselves for first place. Wellington’s Mariah Van Sickle said good team chemistry was a main reason for the victory, and she also credited the fans. “It was good, everyone was cheering for us. It was fun,” she said. Welly’s Sara Simovic was selected tournament MVP. The most notable victories came Thursday against Cedar, a 60-23 win, and Friday against Woodlands, a 63-36 win. Simovic scored 24 points in the win over Cedar, with Vicky Brown adding 11. Megan Cawthorn led the Spartans in that contest with 13 points. In the game against Woodlands, Van Sickle was top scorer for the ’Cats with 11 points and Ksenia Malenica of the Eagles scored a game-high 16 points. Also hosting tour nament action on the weekend were the Woodlands Eagles senior AA boys. They went undefeated Friday and Saturday, defeating the Barsby Blazers twice and the Nanaimo District Islanders twice. The Eagles’ Bryson Cox was tournament MVP, scoring at least 25 points in every game including a 41-point effort in a 76-62 win over NDSS on Saturday. Erik Van Waes and Aaron Halsall were other top scorers for Woodlands. The Blazers and Islanders split their games, with Barsby winning 72-64 on Friday and ND prevailing 65-45 the next day. Jordan Kuziek had a 31-point effort in one of his games and ended up as Barsby’s top scorer at the tournament. Aidan Goodall and Tyler Norris were ND’s high scorers.

The Nanaimo Clippers kept pushing and pushing, and finally shoved the opposition to the ice. The Clips defeated the Langley Rivermen 6-2 on Friday night in B.C. Hockey League action at Frank Crane Arena to snap a string of three losses.

“ We d e f i n i t e l y needed this win…” said Tristan Lowenberger, who scored the game-winning goal. “We talked about it as a group. It was a mustwin game and we came out and battled hard.” The outcome was in doubt for the first two periods, as the Shipmen carried the play but were unfortunate to be down 2-1 through

40 minutes. “We worked hard constantly throughout the game and I think it [wore] them down until finally things started to go in for us,” said Colton Cyr, who scored two goals. “It was good on us to come out in the third and stick with it because it’s not always easy when you’re not scoring.” ◆ See ‘WIN’ /26

VIU Mariners smart at school

The Vancouver Island University Mariners teams are all about getting that W. But when they’re in class, they’re all trying to get an A. The university released its academic excellence list for the fall semester and 36 VIU studentathletes made the grade with an average of B+ or better. The men’s volleyball team had the best grade-point average of VIU’s teams, while the women’s soccer team had the highest number of athletes on the academic excellence list. Top student-athletes for fall 2011 were soccer player Stephen Ewashko and basketball player Heather McCarthy.

Win builds confidence for squad ◆ From /25 Kyle Kramer was able to tie the game just 38 seconds into the third period, which was important, said coach Mike Vandekamp. “Scoring early was a huge boost for us. It took pressure off just a little bit because you can start to really squeeze your sticks when you’re generating a lot of shots and lots of chances but you’re not getting any results,” he said. “Especially when you need a win bad and the pressure starts to mount a little bit.” Just a minute after Kramer’s goal, Lowenberger scored off a shot from the wing. Cyr added his pair, both scored in tight around the crease, and then Brett Hartskamp closed out the scoring with a minute left. Trevor Fitzgerald scored Nanaimo’s firstperiod goal and Billy Faust was the winning goalie as his team dou-

bled the opposition in shots, 56-28. The Clippers also liked the way they played in an overtime loss against the Surrey Eagles last Wednesday, so they felt like their g ame was coming around after their Friday win. “Guys had a lot of confidence in themselves today,” said Cyr. “Just from the good start and the fact that we had good puck possession right from

the start of the game. I think guys wanted to be that guy who got the next goal, and when everybody’s playing like that and still taking care of the D side of the game, then good things are going to happen.” Good things, like the first home win of 2012, a happy crowd and an excited locker room. “When every line’s contributing, when everyone’s getting out there and working

hard and sticking to the system, then the next line going out just feeds off their energy,” said Lowenberg er. “ W h e n t h e wh o l e team’s going, it’s fun to play hockey.” GAME ON … The Clippers visit the Eagles on Wednesday (Jan. 11) in a 7 p.m. start. Nanaimo then hosts the Cowichan Valley Capitals on Friday at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
