Mid-Island battered by windstorm BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

A wicked storm front that passed through Nanaimo Friday afternoon caused widespread power outages across the region and was responsible for at least one injury in Nanaimo. Powerful winds reportedly reaching gusts of up to 90 km/h blew speaker equipment off a field house at Merle Logan Field just after 1 p.m. Friday, injuring a 65-yearold football fan settling in to watch the John Barsby Bulldogs take on the Clarence Fulton Maroons. The spectator said she

suffered a dislocated and fractured shoulder. She was taken by ambulance to hospital and is now home recovering. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said the storm caused two minor car accidents near Duke Point due to hydroplaning, and police attended National Car Sales on Northfield Road to assist with a blown-over canopy. Otherwise there was no reported damage or injuries locally. The storm moved in quickly from the north, bringing with it hail and pounding rain. ◆ See ‘THOUSANDS’ /6

SALUTING OUR SOLDIERS Canadian war veteran and Sergeant-at-arms Pat Patterson, front, salutes the nation’s war dead Friday during Remembrance Day ceremonies at the Nanaimo Cenotaph. Hundreds of spectators, military, police and firefighters attended the ceremony to honour those who made sacrifices to protect the freedoms we enjoy today.

Social housing supporters step up Inbrief

city scene

Green Light Project founded to counter negative information circulated about supportive housing BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

N

anaimo’s homeless need compassion, not politics. That’s the message a new organization is trying to convey in an effort to educate local residents as the Nov. 19 municipal election nears, hoping instead to bring awareness to the issue of supportive housing rather than a political bias. In recent months, the Housing First strategy, an agreement between the city and province to house 160 of Nanaimo’s homeless, has come under fire as neighbourhoods selected to have low-barrier facilities lashed back at city hall. In the spring, hospital area residents battled council over a proposed 36-unit low-barrier facility on Bowen Road and more recently, north-end residents had a similar reaction to a proposed 40-unit project on Uplands Drive near Hammond Bay Road. Katie Durvin and Shayd Johnson, founders of the Green Light Project, are concerned the needs of Nanaimo’s most vulnerable citizens are being lost in the squabble. “Green Light isn’t about telling people how to vote,” said Durvin, a fourth-year global studies student at Vancouver Island University. “It’s about stating the facts, something we feel hasn’t been done by some organizations on this issue, and raising awareness among Nanaimo residents. “We’re asking people to do their research, decide for themselves how they feel about low barrier housing, and go vote taking into account low-barrier housing and all of the other

It’s about stating the facts, something we feel hasn’t been done on this issue.

issues facing Nanaimo.” The project has a steady core of five ‘executives’ and about 30 people working to bring the message to citizens. Along with a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/supportgreenlight), Green Light assembled a street team to discuss topics with passersby, and members are working on a video that portrays how Nanaimo’s homeless and those who are at risk of being homeless live every day. “I think it’s going to be powerful,” said Johnson. “What has been missing in this whole thing is who the people are we’re trying to help. Yes, some

of them have addictions or alcohol issues, or emotional issues, but they’re not monsters. They’re single moms who don’t have enough money, elderly, people who need help, a place to live, a place to start over.” Both Johnson and Durvin spent Wednesday morning passing out food to people at the 7-10 Club. While Durvin has been an advocate to help Nanaimo’s homeless for some time, it’s Johnson’s first foray into a challenging world. “The experience sort of caught me off guard,” he said. “I wasn’t sure what to expect, but people were extremely polite and helpful, they all said thank you with a smile, even the children.” Green Light members have also visited low-income residents, people who live in private houses, apartments and boarding rooms. They’re concerned about the conditions they witnessed – from squalor, mould, cockroaches and rats to unsafe structures. “And these places charge $400 to $600 for rent. These are not safe places to live, and because of the high rent people

are trapped there, they can’t get ahead,” Durvin said. “You know, so many people are one or two paycheques, or some bad luck, away from that. A lot of people are on the fringe and they need help.” Both Durvin and Johnson say they have faith in the components of the housing strategy, which requires an application process and monitoring of potential low-barrier housing residents before they are accepted to a unit, as well as the service providers chosen to oversee each facility. Johnson, a photographer, said Green Light was created in reaction to a group called Concerned Citizens of Nanaimo, which emerged with some solid financial backing against the Uplands project. Johnson said he felt he needed to do something to provide a counterbalance to that group’s intent to stall or eliminate the project through media ads and an information mail-out to homes in the north end. The title ‘Green Light’ was chosen to present a positive feel with a forward thinking attitude – green means go – rather than the “fear-based” and “aggressive” red motif chosen by CCN. “We’re not competing with them. They’ve brought up issues like process and we agree the process hasn’t been perfect, but that’s not our issue. Our focus is providing people with a safe place to live,” said Johnson. Durvin said conversation between the two groups, mostly through Facebook, has been encouraging, and she hopes it continues to be productive rather than inflammatory. “It feels like we’ve been building bridges, not fences,” she said. “Our campaign is about respect and helping people, and making Nanaimo a better place to live for everybody.”

A Nanaimo man died on the weekend in an ATV crash. Police said they responded at 3:20 a.m. Friday to the fatal mishap, which happened near an old logging road off the end of Lorenzen Road in Lantzville. The ATV was being driven on a trail in the dark when it went over a ledge and tumbled seven metres down an embankment into Hardy Creek. The two men riding the ATV were thrown off, but its driver, Garrett Roger Paquette, 30, was pinned in the creek under the machine. Paquette was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger, 26, was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital with non-lifethreatening injuries. Nanaimo Search and Rescue was called out to help with the recovery of Paquette’s body. Police said alcohol consumption and operating the ATV in the dark on an off-road trail were major factors in the fatal crash. Nanaimo RCMP traffic services and the B.C. Coroner’s Office are continuing their investigation.

Proclamation eyes education Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan has proclaimed Nov. 14-18 International Education Week in Nanaimo. The purpose of International Education Week is to celebrate international education in all its dimensions, and acknowledge the contributions that international students make to campus life.

Issues presented to city candidates BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo voters got a chance to see candidates vying for a spot on city council in action Thursday. Unlike usual all-candidates meetings, a forum at Beban Park Social Centre split candidates into four groups, where they debated a single issue – similar to an actual council meeting. The Coalition for Democratic Nanaimo asked the public to send its top concerns to the website democraticnanaimo.blogspot. com, and then identified the top four issues including: community consultation, planning, economic development and short-and long-term fiscal management. Mayoral candidate Roger McKinnon, council incumbent Diana Johnstone and candidates Arlene Blundell, Brunie Brunie, Brian Filmore and Rob Zver discussed planning and how to balance the principles of the Official Community Plan and the pressures for change. Former mayor and council candidate Gary Korpan was to be part of the group, but did not attend the meeting. McKinnon told the crowd of close to 600 people that while the city must continue to look ahead 20-50 years, it has to be prepared to change with the economic times. “I’m sure you all know [business expert] Michael Campbell. He’s saying long-term planning now is two years. That’s how fast the world is changing,” said McKinnon. “The economy and growth of each city changes plans and needs.” Johnstone said Nanaimo is doing well with its community planning, but could be more collaborative. “We have a lot of talent and expertise in our community and I think we need to involve our youth more, involve the chamber of commerce, the port authority and the airport.” Brunie said council has let the citizens down when it comes to planning. “Most of the work that went into community planning, includ-

ing input by the people, has never been implemented. It never got any further than words,” she said. T h e c o n s u l t at i o n group included Mayor John Ruttan, incumbents Ted Greves and Fred Pattje, and candidates George Anderson, Rod Lomas and Darcy Olsen. Candidate Peter Quinn Ramsay did not attend. Pattje responded to a comment that the city often hides behind incamera meetings by saying communication is a two-way street. “I’ve attended many charrettes, open houses and public meetings and have found attendance is often minimal,” he said. “You haven’t got anything to bitch about if you don’t show up.” Lomas said council is about making informed

decisions and effective communication, due diligence and fair process are hallmarks of good government. “This fails when poor engagement with the community occurs,” he said. “Especially with controversial decisions that impact the community. This breaks down the confidence in the government body.” Ruttan said council has been inclusive. “We’ve been welcoming and listened to people who have come forward,” he said. “Whether we are in agreement is a different matter.” On the issue of lowbarrier housing, Olsen received a round of applause when she said it’s time for everyone to stop being naysayers and move forward. ◆ See ‘COUNCIL’ /6

Car crashes through home’s kitchen wall Residents were evacuated in north Nanaimo on the weekend after car crashed into a house and severed a gas line. The incident happened when a Toyota Corolla and a Toyota Yaris collided at the intersection of Metral and Dunbar drives Saturday at about 3 p.m. The Yaris crashed through a wooden fence, went over an embankment and into the side of a home on Lionel Crescent. The car crashed through the home’s kitchen wall, severing a gas line and narrowly missing a woman cooking in her kitchen. Police and firefighters closed off the area and evacuated residents in nearby homes until Fortis crews were able to turn off the gas. The 79-year-old woman from Port Coquitlam driving the Yaris was taken to hospital for a leg injury. Her female passenger, 50, the woman driving the Corolla, 34, and the woman in the home were uninjured. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said the gas was shut off about 10 minutes after emergency crews arrived. The crash is under investigation while police determine if charges or other actions are warranted against either of the drivers. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Thousands lost power around region Council hopefuls

◆ From /1 Ted Olynyk, spokesman for B.C. Hydro, said no power outages were reported in the

area prior to 1 p.m. Friday, but between 1-2 p.m. almost 7,000 customers had lost power.

Outages peaked just after 3 p.m. with more than 10,000 customers in Nanaimo and Gabriola Island going

without power. “The stor m was pretty intense and it happened very fast,” said Olynyk. “Trees on lines, branches on lines and in some of the more exposed areas, like on Galiano Island, we had 30 spans of line down.” No injuries were reported as a result of fallen power lines. Olynyk said it took crews a significant amount of time to restore power. “It took a while,” he said. “There was some significant damage in some areas and a lot of outages we had to attend to and unfortunately crews weren’t able to attend to all the damage on Gabriola until [Sunday].” As of Monday, all residents in the area had power restored. Olynyk said the first storm of the season should serve as a reminder to have emergency supplies at hand in case of a long-term power outage, and to report any power losses to B.C. Hydro immediately so crews know which areas to attend and restore power. Power outages should be reported by calling 1-888-769-3766. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

debate as groups ◆ From /5 The city’s operating budget dominated discussion with the fiscal management group of mayoral candidate Jim Routledge, incumbent councillor Bill Bestwick and candidates Diane Brennan, Gord Fuller, Bill McKay and Trent Snikkers. Bestwick called for an independent core services review to see where the money is being spent and where there might be savings. “Everything does not have to go up three to five per cent every year just because,” he said. “I think we can find ways for reduction where it won’t cut services.” Brennan agreed in the importance of the annual operating budget, but said council does not need to bring in an outsider to tell it what it wants and needs. “We need to canvass the citizens and find out what is their vision. Only when that is done can we adopt a budget,” she said. Snikkers also wants to bring neighbourhoods into the budget process with participatory budgeting. Routledge said financial management is all about common sense. “You spend the money you have, when you have it and then you wait,” he said. Mayoral candidate Dan Didio, incumbent councillor Jim Kipp and candidates Chris Cathers,

Zeni Maartman and Jeet Manhas debated economic development and what businesses Nanaimo should strive for. Council candidate Chris Oulette Croucher did not attend. Cathers would like to see high tech, manufacturing, marine science and health-care jobs in Nanaimo, but there must be workers to fill them. “Let’s invest in our children and teach them to think for themselves,” he said. Kipp is looking at the agriculture, aquaculture and forestry industries, with a focus on resources. “I don’t want to see anyone ship anything raw out of this country,” he said. “We also need to recognize things that are not sustainable, that don’t work.” Didio wants to reduce red tape at city hall and save taxpayers money by eliminating permits for routine home improvements.

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

Transparency fuzzy on power All the talk about the installation of smart meters has perhaps clouded an even more serious issue at B.C. Hydro – how it keeps its books. Auditor General John Doyle recently released his latest report, B.C. Hydro: The Effects of Rate-Regulated Accounting, outlining how accounting at the Crown corporation doesn’t really paint a true picture of its finances and the fact government has no plan to address the issue. The report examines the implications of B.C. Hydro’s use of rate-regulated accounting, which allows B.C. Hydro to establish deferral accounts into which it can “defer” expenses to future years. As of March 2011, a net total of $2.2 billion in expenses was deferred and, by government’s own estimate, the balance is predicted to grow to $5 billion by 2017. There does not appear to be a plan to reduce the balance of these accounts, let alone halt their growth. Rate-regulated accounting “can mask the true cost of doing business, create the appearance of profitability where none actually exists, and place undue burdens on future ratepayers,” Doyle writes. Canada will be adopting international financial reporting standards in the coming year, which does not allow for deferral accounts. As such, expenses that are currently being deferred under rate regulation would be shown each year, bringing to the forefront the financial consequences of management decisions and highlighting the challenges that lie ahead. But the province is considering not moving B.C. Hydro to IFRS, said Doyle. “It is requiring B.C. Hydro to adopt part of an American accounting standard that allows rate regulation, abandoning the transparency that will be required by Canadian GAAP.” Isn’t this the same government that, not too long ago, was talking about transparency and accountability?

Addiction isn’t only confined to one segment of the population. There are people with addictions living in million dollar homes hidden from everyday view. How is someone supposed to get clean when all their energy during the day is spent on survival? Their main priorities are finding shelter, staying warm and getting something to eat. Some remain cold and hungry. There isn’t a lot of room to work on problems when the day is filled with basic survival procedures. Some people argue that instead of building housing for the street homeless, there should be more housing built for lowincome families and seniors. They question why the city is building homes for this segment of the population when other people need a place to live and are struggling as well. All types of housing are needed. We shouldn’t squabble over who is getting the funding this round, we should be fighting to get more for our community. We must contact the government and say we need money for other kinds of housing in our community. Rent is becoming out of reach for far too many people who need a place to live. There are people choosing between having a roof over their heads or food. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

North-end residents need a wake-up call To the Editor, It seems to be the consensus among those most vocally opposed to the city’s proposed lowbarrier housing project that our draconian city council is condemning the Wonderbread community of the north end by suggesting that mixing the well off and the dysfunctional might not be a bad idea. Not so, claim the nay-sayers, for if the untouchables were to ever infiltrate the north end, our safe, suburban dream would be over, right? Yet how safe is this neighborhood as it is? Are there not already a multitude of drugrelated influences going on within the very high school which is now about to be ‘corrupted’ by the influence of a nearby ‘drug house’? It seems to me the students of Dover Bay have been the subject of a great deal of complaints with respect to causing problems in the neighbourhood, yet it seems that now, as a more visibly dysfunctional group is set to move in, my peers and I have conveniently been redefined as the innocent, suburban children whose safety will be compromised if this project is completed. It is the preconception among those opposed to the project that the housing units will become nothing more than a drug users’ hangout. Of course, our picturesque community couldn’t possibly have a number of what could be called drug houses as it is, could it? I beg to differ: we all have demons in our own backyards, some are just better concealed

than others. Nevertheless, I wonder how loud the public outcry would be if such a project were proposed in a community like Harewood? Are there no schools and children in south Nanaimo? For a society that wants so badly to be ‘drug-free’, nobody seems to want to have the appropriate facilities for such a thing in their own backyard. Righteousness is pretty sick sometimes; everyone pretends like they want to help the less fortunate, as long as it doesn’t inconvenience them at all. Harewood doesn’t need another project, yet I believe our community does, because it might just be the eye-opener some people around here need to understand the real problems facing the less fortunate. People around here look outside and expect to see a mirror – they want to see something familiar staring back at them. It’s time for people to stop fearing being close to that which is different. Maybe then our focus would shift, somewhat, from worrying so much about how our property values are going to be affected, and more about how we can help those whom we seem to know so little about. Maybe then we’d remember just how lucky we are, and how easily it could be our friend, or even ourselves, looking for a way to get better. Something like that would hit us much closer to home than this project ever will. Jay Herringer Nanaimo

Supporters need to follow rules To the Editor, Re: Citizens’ group draws fire for election efforts, Nov. 12. The group calling itself Concerned Citizens of Nanaimo admits it has spent more than $500 and provided a list of supported candidates. But they claim they were not aware of rules governing campaign organizers and they did not check prior to endorsing candidates. Not aware of election rules? Full-page ads, thousands of flyers printed and distributed – sounds like many times more than $500. Who’s funding this group? Joan Harrison, Nanaimo’s chief election officer, says the CCN was potentially a campaign

organization, but an investigation would have to come from the local RCMP. RCMP spokesman Gary O’Brien says they had a complaint, but it was turned away because there was no evidence. Isn’t the statement of the CCN representative evidence? It’s virtually a confession. Political organizations and parties that campaign on law-and-order platforms often turn out to be the most lawless, acting as if they are above the law. The CCN is waging a scare campaign portraying the prospective residents of social housing as users of illegal drugs and petty criminals. And yet the CCN failed to check the election laws

before undertaking its expensive campaign of public persuasion. Are we to elect the candidates associated with the CCN? Have people running our city with so little regard for the rules? I am noting their names as people to keep out of city hall. Paul Glassen Nanaimo

Citizen group acts from place of fear To the Editor, In the American south during the late ’50s and early ’60s, groups formed to “ help maintain our southern way of life”. At first they were called White Citizens Councils, but then became simply

Citizens Councils. They placed ads in papers throughout the south urging people to support segregation. It is scary to see manipulative ads in our own Nanaimo papers by an anonymous group called Concerned Citizens of Nanaimo with the intent to segregate our citizens along economic and social lines to preserve their way of life. In both cases, it appears that people are acting from a place of fear. In reading their recommended voter’s list, I would agree with my grandson who says, “At least I know who not to vote for. “ Dyane Brown Nanaimo

Smart meters a scary prospect for future To the Editor, Perhaps we should be calling those wonderful smart meters marketing meters. Once installed, they will be able to do some of the most incredible things. Should you have the need to buy a new refrigerator, it will already have installed a reader that will be able to not only tell your meter how much electricity you are using, it will be able to read the bar codes on the contents of your fridge. The marketing world would love to know how much and what type of orange juice you drink, how often, the time of day and, yes, even the brand you prefer. That same smart meter can send out a signal to activate the passive transmitters that are now embedded in many products such as clothing. They (Hydro) will be able to tell their commercial subscribers when you may be due for some new underwear so that custom advertizing

to be invaded by thread transmitters, whole fridge bar code readers and even can openers that will be able to communicate through your smart meter to your local grocery store. That way the store can suggest to you that you may be out of beans and should buy some more. Thanks to our government and its Clean Energy Act, Big Brother will not only be able to watch us, he will be able to take care of us, assess our needs and empty our wallets. Alan MacKinnon Nanaimo

To the Editor, Re: Zalm joins the Hydro conspiracy club, B.C. Views, Nov. 3. B.C. Views was half amusing and half scary. These meters in fact do record the precise time power use fluctuates. They know the rate of average draw for evert elec-

trical appliance being used. Zalm may not be far off, truth can be a jagged little pill and hard to swallow. I’ll mention the nearbillion dollar cost and the people pogey is a pretty poor predicament when the world economy is plummeting.

Correction Due to an editing error, the letter Help wanted ads don’t reflect reality, in the Thursday, Nov. 10 News Bulletin contained incorrect information. L. Rumming’s original submission stated that “advertised jobs, newspaper or Internet, only account for 20 per cent of the jobs in any area.” The News Bulletin regrets the error and any inconvenience that resulted.

Recover costs from guilty staff, B.C. told POLICY REVIEW says taxpayers should foot legal bills for workers guilty of crimes related to jobs.

I

BY TOM FLETCHER BLACK PRESS

The B.C. government should try to recover le gal fees paid on behalf of employees found guilty of crimes related to their employment, according to an outside review of the policy released Thursday. University of B.C. president Ste phen Toope was appointed in May to review the province’s policy of covering legal fees for public servants who are sued or charged in connection with their duties. Toope concluded that there are valid reasons to protect accused employees, but if they are found guilty, action to recover costs should be automatic. T h e rev i ew w a s

sparked by a $6 million payout to settle legal fees for ministerial assistants Dave Basi and Bobby Virk, who abruptly pleaded guilty this spring to taking bribes in connection with the sale of BC Rail operations in 2002. Their prosecution stretched out for seven years, mostly due to wrangling over defence demands for disclosure of thousands of government documents. Toope was not asked to review the payout in the Basi-Virk case, which is being investigated by B.C. AuditorGeneral John Doyle. The existing policy leans heavily on the discretion of bureaucrats, and was added to over the years in response to specific cases.

The first time defence costs were paid in a B.C. criminal case was when former premier Glen Clark was charged with breach of trust involving a casino licence granted to a neighbour. Clark was acquitted. Two deputy ministers reviewed the Basi-Virk case and concluded the accused had nowhere near the assets to cover their legal bills. So the province paid the bills and didn’t try to recover the cost. Attor ney General Shirley Bond promised Thursday that the government will take away the discretion to make that choice in future cases. New regulations will specify cost recovery from those convicted, but the government will still use “common sense” to weigh the costs and benefits of legal action, Bond said. NDP attorney general critic Leonard Krog said the govern-

ment ordered Toope’s report to deflect attention away from the Basi-Virk case, which

was settled just as it was to begin calling witnesses. Toope examined the

95 cases since 1999 where legal fees were covered by the province. Most were law-

suits involving public servants, and the average cost was $27,000. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

ing a report to Crown prosecutors. And the RCMP and outside police agency must both request the OPCC. Once that happens, the complaint commissioner will have the power to order a further investigation. While Lowe still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the right to investigate less serious allegations against RCMP the way he can investigate municipal police, the announcement still represents a significant shift by the RCMP, which has been immune to provincial review until now even though it provides street-level policing to most of B.C. The announcement of the deal comes one week after the OPCC and RCMP announced a one-time deal that would allow the commissioner to review the conduct of the Langley RCMP involved in the Aug. 6, 2010 shooting of 22-year-old Alvin Wright in Langley, who died the next day. A Vancouver Police review found no basis for criminal charges. At the time, Lowe said the agreement was limited to the Wright case. Under the terms of the new deal, the OPCC will consider whether the available evidence discloses â&#x20AC;&#x153;a reasonable basis to consider that the conduct of an officer or former officer may constitute an offence under any Federal or Provincial legislation?â&#x20AC;? If it does, the OPCC will submit an investigation report to the Criminal Justice Branch for charge assessment by Crown prosecutors. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Deals target Chinese students More than 20 partnerships or agreements were signed between B.C. and Chinese post-secondary institutions and organizations last week, as both look to increase learning opportunities for postsecondary students on both sides of the Pacific. It is estimated more than 2,500 students will come to B.C. communities, including Vancouver Island University and Nanaimo, over five years as a result of the agreements. Twelve B.C. institutions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Royal Roads University, Capilano University, Thompson Rivers University, Vancouver Island University, BC Institute of Technology, University of BC, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, the University of Northern BC, Douglas College, Trinity Western University, North Island College and the University of Victoria â&#x20AC;&#x201C; took part in ceremonies in either Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing or Chongqing. An agreement between VIU and South China Normal University outlines collaborations for the schools, including a program for SCNU students to spend a year at VIU, student and faculty exchanges, visiting scholars and research collaboration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;International co-operation between B.C. and China means shared experiences, successes and relationships that will continue for a lifetime,â&#x20AC;? said Naomi Yamamoto, Advanced Education Minister, in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;International studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contributions help to create services and programming as well as cultural experiences for our domestic students.â&#x20AC;? The province described the mission as an opportunity to strengthen B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationships in Asia and discover new ways to work together through the development of educational initiatives. It is also an opportunity for government to form the new trade and business relationships that will ensure the success of the B.C. Jobs Plan. About 39,000 international students from more

B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently announced jobs plan, Canada Starts Here, sets a goal of increasing the number of international students by 50 per cent over four years.

VIU rises to occasion Men’s and women’s basketball teams sweep home openers BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

VIU Mariners player Tyler Olsen puts up a tough shot against the Langara Falcons on Friday night at the Vancouver Island University gym.

Vancouver Island University’s basketball teams are both expected to be top contenders this season. After the first weekend of league play, there’s no reason to think otherwise. The Mariners men’s and women’s teams both swept their home openers Friday and Saturday at the VIU gym. The men defeated the Langara Falcons 87-68 on Friday, then beat the Kwantlen Eagles 81-51 the next day. VIU’s women were 72-37 winners against Langara, and followed up with a 75-47 victory over Kwantlen. Fans filled the stands Friday to make for a good atmosphere. “I’m happy we got a win, especially the first one at home,” said Bill McWhinnie, coach of the VIU women. “They got the nerves out, hopefully.” The coach said his team competed hard in the first half and played tough defence. “We came out strong and in spurts we kind of took it to them,” said Jocelyn Jones, who scored a gamehigh 24 points. “We

took a couple plays off and we didn’t really end strong but we won and overall we played good.” Shayna Worthington added 13 points for VIU and she and Jones had eight rebounds each. The highly ranked Mariners women expect that they’ ll sometimes be in blowout games this season, so they’ll have to challenge themselves in those sort of games.

“No matter who we’re playing against, we have to play the way we play,” McWhinnie said. “It doesn’t matter the score or who we’re playing against.” The men’s matchup was the more exciting game as the Mariners trailed by one point after the first quarter and were up by eight at halftime before pulling away in the third. “We were good at times, we were sloppy

at times, but that’s expected, first game of the year,” said Tony Bryce, coach of the Mariner men. He said the Falcons were under manned due to injury and his team was able to wear down the visitors, expecially under the baskets. “It was kind of an ugly win I guess,” said Jacob Thom, who led all scorers with 26 points. “We didn’t come out too strong, we got beat up on the glass and we tried to correct that in the second half and I think we did a better job.” Richard Townsend Gant scored 24 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. T h e n e x t d a y, Townsend Gant had 13 points and eight boards and Harrison Stupich scored 12. I n t h e wo m e n’s game, Jones and Kayla Gromme scored 19 points each. Gromme also had seven steals in that one and Worthington had 15 points and 11 rebounds.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Two of the B.C. Hockey League’s best teams traded blows on the weekend, setting up a premier rubber match. The Nanaimo Clippers split with the Powell River Kings on the road Friday and Saturday, losing the first game 3-0 before winning the rematch 4-2. The first game was closer than the score suggests, as the Kings scored early in first period and the game stayed 1-0 until midway through the third. The home team’s defensive structure was impossible for the Clips to crack. “They’re really established in the systems that they want to play and they stick to them and they don’t really deviate from them,” said Michael Olson, Clippers assistant coach. “A lot of the things they do, we’re trying to implement over here.” Billy Faust suffered the loss in goal with a 30-save effort. Saturday’s contest

saw the Kings score first again, this time early in the second period, but the Clippers answered back the very next shift with Andrew Gladiuk scoring his first of two on the night. “We kind of took over a little bit from there,” Olson said. “We started getting some bounces, we got ourselves a power-play goal and Billy played well for us in the nets. He made some huge saves in the second period and some game savers in the third.” Faust was named first star with 36 saves and Trevor Fitzgerald and Jesse Neher were other goal scorers. The weekend results set up a beauty of a game Wednesday (Nov. 16) at Frank Crane Arena. “It’s two good hockey teams going head to head, playing a similar style but there’s things going on at both ends and it’s entertaining hockey for the fans,” said Olson. GAME ON … The Clippers (10-6-0-3) and Kings (11-6-2) face off Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane … Nanaimo will also be at home Friday to face the first-place Cowichan Valley Capitals (12-5-1-1) at 7 p.m. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Call it the Stor m Bowl. The Barsby Bulldogs and Clarence Fulton Maroons kicked off the 2011 AA varsity football playoffs Friday afternoon in bitter cold, driving rain and howling wind. Fans might forget the final score – 46-0 for the home team – but they won’t forget how their mettle was tested by winds strong enough to blow over loudspeaker equipment at Merle Logan Field. “That’s a game everybody will remember for that reason,” said Rob Stevenson, Barsby coach. “It must have been a rogue element of that storm that hit Alaska. It was wild.” When the Maroons weren’t being pelted by rain, they were being hit by Bulldogs players, over and over again. The home team had more than twice as large a roster as the visitors. “They looked pretty short benched but they fought, gosh darn it,” Stevenson said. The ’Dawgs were dominant, owning field position and chewing up yardage en route

Clarence Fulton Maroons quarterback Kyle Richardson, left, is sacked by Barsby Bulldogs opponent Nick Pedersen during Friday’s AA varsity football playoff game at Merle Logan Field. The home team advanced with a 46-0 win.

to a 40-0 halftime lead. The remainder of the game was played run time. “You challenge them to execute as if the game’s 0-0, [to] finish with the same focus and intensity that you started the game with,” Stevenson said. “Standards don’t get lowered.” Because the score was so lopsided, the Bulldogs were able to share around playing time and it showed on the box score, as Barsby’s seven touchdowns were scored by seven different players. Tyler Vollet had a 51-yard touchdown catch from Isaac Mitchell and Brad

Robson, Jacob Odynsky, Dexter Shea and Tim Hampson all had rushing majors. Nate Berg returned a punt for a TD and Kyle Vollet returned an interception for a TD. It was one of two picks on the day for the JV call-up. Other defensive stats saw Berg make five tackles to go with a sack and Robson with four tackles and a sack. The Bulldogs will now prepare to take on Abbotsford Collegiate at the University of British Columbia; scheduling hasn’t yet been confirmed. So Friday’s Storm Bowl was the last home action of the year for

Barsby, and they appreciated the cheers. “A big shout out to the folks out there in red and black that came out to support their team and endured the exact same weather as everybody on the field,” Stevenson said. GRID BITS … The Nanaimo District Islanders were supposed to play a playoff game Friday, as well, but the contest got cancelled the day before. A mainland team was penalized on a player-eligibility issue, shaking up the Tier 2 varsity playoff brackets and giving NDSS an unexpected first-round bye. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Symphony recreates patriotic concert Last Night of the Proms traditionally ends summer classical music series in Britain BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

he city boasting the longest-running Empire Days celebration will get a boost of British pride, courtesy of the Vancouver Island Symphony. The Nanaimo-based symphony presents Last Night of the Proms at the Port Theatre, inspired by the summer concert series in Britain. The Proms was created in the 1890s to attract a new audience to concert halls through low ticket prices and the option to stand or walk about (promenade) during the concert. The idea was to get people in the habit of attending classical music and slowly raise the standard. The Last Night of the Proms is the culmination of the summer concert series and features a set program in the second half, mainly of British patriotic pieces. Although the Port Theatre isn’t set

up to have people promenading during the concert, the symphony will recreate some of the most recognizable pieces, including Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance and Arne’s Rule Britannia. “It’s kind of rousing music,” said Richard Rosenberg, the symphony’s guest conductor for the show. Rosenberg studied with Pierre Simard, the symphony’s artistic director, at the Peabody Institute. Rosenberg visited Nanaimo twice and got to hear the symphony in rehearsal on his last visit. “We talked about it as far back as then,” Rosenberg said, of his turn as guest conductor. “It’s an incredible opportunity and honour.” Rosenberg is the producer and artistic director of the National Music Festival in Chestertown, Md., which brings together professional mentors and music students for two weeks of concerts and instruction, as well as the conductor for the Union Symphony Orchestra.

In addition to Rosenberg, the Vancouver Island Symphonic Choir, with baritone Aaron Durand, will be featured in the show. Symphony concertmaster, Calvin Dyck, is the featured soloist in Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons – Autumn. “It’s the only Baroque piece we’re doing,” Rosenberg said. Rosenberg learns the repertoire from his home in the U.S. and arrives in Nanaimo a few days prior to the concert to pull the show together or, as he said, “make it live.” “The conductor’s job is to help illuminate the orchestra at how it all works together,” Rosenberg said. Last Night of the Proms begins at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Port Theatre. Tickets $52; $49/seniors; $20/students. Please call 250-754-8550 or visit www. porttheatre.com. For more information, please visit www.vancouverislandsymphony.com.

Prior to Last Night of the Proms, the Vancouver Island Symphony’s concert on Saturday (Nov. 19), the musicians participate in a series of free events to inspire young people to pursue music.

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:

UP TO NOV. 21, 2011

Aries

Taurus

Gemini

Cancer

Leo

Virgo

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, wait until your temper simmers down before confronting someone who has angered you. This way you will have a level head when you address the situation. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, mysterious things come into your life, and for once you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the answers. Go with the ďŹ&#x201A;ow on this and you will be pleasantly surprised. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Patience is something you lack entirely this week, Gemini. But you will make up for it in personality. Just when you think others arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listening to what you say, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all ears. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 A few changes are in store that come as a surprise, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle, Cancer. Rethink your plan of attack later in the week, or you can fall short of your goal. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much you can do at the moment to resolve a certain issue, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to just sit quietly on the sidelines and let everything blow over. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, no one expects you to be perfect at everything, so there is no need to drive yourself crazy with all of the minute details. Focus on the bigger picture instead.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, one minute youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going one way and the next minute another way. People canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow your train of thought, and they may see you as scatterbrained. Calm down SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, happy times are ahead, so relish every moment of the break youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re given and the memories that can be made in the next few days. Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; activities take precedence. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 New factors breathe new life into a stale plan, Sagittarius. This renews your ambition and desire to make changes. Others will be supportive of your efforts. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, ďŹ nancial issues can be quite a problem. You actually may have to ask someone for help until you can get back on track with your accounts. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, many people experience something special but you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the chance. Relax, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have other opportunities shortly.

Choir sings emotional spectrum

I

FROM SADNESS to joy evoked during annual concert.

The A Cappella Plus chamber choir runs the full gamut from joy to sadness during its upcoming concert. Opening the show is a joyful piece called Exultate by Scarlatti, followed by Vier Quartette by Brahms, with accompaniment on piano by Jamie Syer. Although sung by the choir, the piece is more like a duet between voice and piano, as both instruments have equal importance.

Poet’s talents highlighted Art professor Gregory Ball and English professors Daniel Burgoyne and Ross MacKay will shed light on the unique talents of William Blake. Their discussion, “A Printing House in Hell: William Blake’s Illuminated Printing,” is the third Arts and Humanities Colloquium this fall and will include a live performance of original music – Emily Smythe’s composition of William Blake’s The Poison Tree. Blake was one of the most important poets and artists of his generation. Once thought to be mad, Blake is now regarded as one of the geniuses of his era. One of the few artists to produce great works in both painting and poetry, he sought to incorporate more imaginative and expressive forms into his work and to redefine the role of artist in society. This colloquium will afford an opportunity to become acquainted with the work of one of the most inventive and unconventional poets in English literary history. Given the oppressive constraints of what Blake referred to as the “mind-forged manacles,” it should come as no surprise that he was an artist who realized early in his career that he “must Create a System, or be enslaved by another Man’s.” Accordingly Blake, an engraver by trade, adapted traditional techniques of etching to work in relief, a method that allowed more direct creative composition on the surface of the copper plate. Unlike conventional etching where the lines of the design are exposed to an acid, leaving the design incised on the plate, Blake reversed the normal method: he wrote and drew directly onto the plate with an acid-resistant material, and the acid then dissolved the exposed parts of the plate, leaving the design standing in relief. In doing so, he developed a unique way to combine his poems with his illustrations through a form of colour printing, which

he described as “illuminated printing.” Poetry thus became inextricably bound with visual art. The integration of printing and creative composition gave Blake complete control over the total production of his works, from inception to publishing. In The Marriage of

Heaven & Hell, one of the first poems rendered as “illuminated printing,” Blake describes his process in terms of six chambers in a “Printing house in Hell.” This colloquium will recreate the process of printmaking through these six chambers and it will relate the material practice of

Blake’s printing to the aesthetic and political issues of his art. The presentation is set for Friday (Nov. 18), 10 a.m., in the Malaspina Theatre at Vancouver Island University. Discussion will follow. For more information, please e-mail katharina.rout@viu. ca.

Training a key ingredient to success BY BRUCE PATTERSON

Juan Villota’s business administration training in his home city of Quito, Ecuador was just the start of his educational journey. “I’ve always loved to be involved in restaurants and hotels. My final goal is to open a restaurant with healthy food on the menu,” said Villota, who is halfway through his training at Vancouver Island University’s Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island. After completing his business studies in Ecuador, Villota earned a post-graduate hotel management

reviews of VIU’s culinary diploma in Switzerland. He program they were very then was ready to spend positive. I also like Canada time in the kitchen. and I looked at “Cooking is what other advantages I needed to close such as the weaththe circle,” he said. er,” he said. “Now Villota went that I’m here, I’m online to research very happy.” culinary institutes Villota got and their reputahands-on experitions. In addition ence quickly with to VIU, he consida summer co-op ered schools in stint at the Westin Peru and Mexico as Bear Mountain well as Le Cordon JUAN VILLOTA Golf Resort and Bleu in Ottawa. Spa in Victoria. He found VIU There were plenty of learnwas the best fit for quality of education, learning envi- ing opportunities working with Executive Chef Iain ronment and his budget. “When I started searching Rennie, an award-winning

Jim Routledge FOR MAYOR Jim Routledge, a thirty-year resident of Nanaimo, says he believes he can make this a better city for everyone. He says the decision to run for mayor really had its beginnings several years ago when he joined the city’s transportation committee in order to promote the use of electric vehicles. That led to involvement in other areas of decision-making including the new zoning bylaw that allows for greater densification in the city. But it was the supported housing issue on Bowen Road and then on Uplands in his neighbourhood that really provided the final impetus. “With Bowen Road it really became apparent that no one was stepping up and really advocating for it,” he says. “I chose to take a more active role in the North End because it was so close to where I am living and developing properties. I created a petition in favour of the project. And then it was election time. It was clear our present mayor was indecisive. He inherited the homeless initiative from a previous council. He failed on Bowen Rd. I could see Uplands and the whole program failing if I did not step up. I am the only one with the will to see this through.”

culinary arts program graduate and certified Chef de Cuisine. “I had to get used to the speed and pressure, but everything is pretty interesting and I like it,” he said. After his co-op experience, Villota accepted an offer to work weekends at Bear Mountain. He hasn’t had too much time off but he’s learning a lot. Villota is one of 1,687 international students enrolled at VIU. A variety of special events are planned for International Education Week at the school, Nov. 14-18.

Building Nanaimo Together

they move, whether it is to work, retire or start a business. We have tools and resources that can be used more efficiently to market and promote what we have.” He adds that his vision for a pedestrian bridge to Newcastle Island is an example of what can be done to attract people to Nanaimo. “This could be a fundamental cornerstone for the future economic development of Nanaimo.” He points out that past regimes at City Hall have a history of building facilities to accommodate people who come to Nanaimo (i.e. the Conference Centre). Routledge says his approach is to give people a reason to come here – accommodations and other facilities will follow. He identifies transparency as another election issue. “I define it as a communication issue,” he says. “And that is something I would certainly address as mayor. I would initiate a process within the Mayor’s Office to communicate more effectively using some of the social media and modern communication techniques that are available.”

While Routledge says supported housing is crucial, he adds that economic development and jobs are the number one issue facing the city today. “My own son is not working in Nanaimo because he’s not able to find work in his trade as a drywall finisher.”

He adds that like many in Nanaimo, he’s curious about the former city manager, Jerry Berry’s dismissal and would be happy to share the truth. This, he says, is just one area where current mayor and council have fallen down – in not being open and forthright. There has been too much secrecy at city hall, Routledge says.

New house construction activity in the city has fallen off by about 50 percent and that affects everyone and every business in Nanaimo, he says. “We’re definitely not on the pace we’ve been on. I know we have tremendous opportunities to generate interest in the city, to attract people and to create growth. There are things people look for in a community where

Routledge says that many people are concerned about their taxes and how City Hall spends taxpayer’s money. He says he supports the core review process championed by councillor Jim Kipp. “I think a fresh financial look at the books is in order where we can establish some base lines for value – for what we’re getting for our tax dollar and how

we proceed from there to either adjust the services or apply new projects that we would like to take on.” What’s the first thing Jim Routledge would do when elected mayor? “I’d amalgamate the Mayor’s office and the City Administrator’s office eliminating two staff positions. It is inefficient to have the top two people responsible for running Nanaimo in different buildings with separate support staff.” “There is no time for a party,” he adds. “I am used to working seven days a week when needed and doing everything from banking to trash. Things are happening. The supported housing issue is at a very critical phase; the EDC needs time and space to get up to speed. Important connections need to be made including the First Nations, VIU, PBS, Service Canada and the Port Authority.” “There is a lot of work to do. I have the strength, energy and enthusiasm to get it done.” www.jimroutledge.com

Skipping program celebrates 30 years Skipping ropes will be nothing but a blur this school year as thousands of elementary and middle school students on Vancouver Island participate in the 30th anniversary of the Jump Rope for Heart program. The first event was held in 1982 to raise heart health awareness and life-saving funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation with only a handful of Island schools participating. Today, Jump Rope for Heart is one of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s most long-standing and successful programs. It delivered fitness and fun to more than 140 schools and 7,000 students across the Island last year and raised vital funds

for heart disease and stroke research, health education and social change. “We hope to increase that number to 10,000 students to have more children empowered to take an active approach in managing their health,” said Janice Krall, area manager for Vancouver Island’s Heart and Stroke Foundation Jump Rope for Heart raises funds for medical research and health promotions and programs to help prevent heart disease and stroke. To register a school for the program, please visit www. jumpropeforheart.ca or contact Nanaimo’s Heart and Stroke Foundation office at 250-754-5274.

Performing centre needs shift workers

Campaign fights porn Nanaimo’s St. Peter’s Parish Catholic Women’s League is making an effort to raise awareness about pornography and its corrupting effects on society. The league took part in the White Ribbons Against Pornography campaign, calling for action in the fight for wholesome family values, and an opportunity to rally for safe communities and a strong country. Every year St. Peter’s Parish Catholic Women’s League of Nanaimo joins 96,000 CWL members across Canada to collect signatures on white ribbons that read Save Our Children From Sexual Predators. The signed Nanaimo ribbons were presented to Jean Crowder,

Nanaimo-Cowichan MP, earlier this month. Agnes Geiger, St. Peter’s Parish CWL resolution chairwoman, said the idea is to get MPs across the country talking about the concerns of the people. “There are 96,000 CWL members across Canada saying ‘this is a problem, we need to have this addressed’,” she said. “We need to have stricter laws to protect our children from sexual predators.” Canadians Addressing Sexual Exploitation brought the ribbon campaign to Canada from the U.S. in 1988 to raise public awareness of the degrading influence of pornography upon society. For more information, please go to www.4case.ca.
