Emotional reunion Emma Price, 8, holds on to her teddy bear she calls Teddy as she watches a Canadian Coast Guard hovercraft approach Nanaimo’s visiting vessel pier Friday morning. Four years ago, Price, near death from leukemia, was transported to B.C. Children’s Hospital by the hovercraft because foggy conditions didn’t allow for air transport. The coast guard employees who helped save her life that day, and gave her Teddy to comfort her, returned to the pier for an emotional reunion. For more, please see page 6.

Inbrief Firefighters feel pretty in pink province

B.C. residents issued ID cards The replacement for B.C.’s CareCard will provide online access to medical records, and may also be used to confirm B.C. residence and age while keeping other information private. Health Minister Mike de Jong announced the new “smart card” plan in May, saying it will also offer the option of doubling as a driver’s licence. The government is phasing out the existing CareCard, mainly because there are 9.1 million cards in circulation and only 4.5 million residents eligible for the Medical Services Plan. The new cards will have a picture and an electronic chip, and be renewable every five years. Labour, Citizen Services and Open Government Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the government hopes to start issuing them in 2012.

Liberals expand probation options Attorney General Shirley Bond has introduced changes to B.C. law that add new sentencing options for street disorder, unsafe driving and other provincial offences. The amendments would allow charges of being drunk in public to be laid under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act instead of the Criminal Code. Offenders could be placed on probation with conditions such as paying for damages, writing an apology and performing community service, and a new offence of breaching a probation order would be available. Probation options are also being added to existing fines and jail terms for serious Motor Vehicle Act offences such as driving with undue care and attention.

CAMPAIGN AIMS to raise funds for cancer society. BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Fire Rescue members are man enough to wear pink, especially when it raises money and awareness for breast cancer. Lieut. Peter Hyne organized the effort, which will see all firefighters wear pink T-shirts during the month of October, while raising about $1,300 for the Canadian Cancer Society. “The money came entirely from our members buying shirts,” said Hyne. “We feel it’s important because it raises awareness for cancer in general, and we all go home at the end of the day to our own families, and some of us face issues at home that deal with cancer.” The T-shirts also represent the fight against cancer some firefighters face as a result of being exposed to carcinogens while on the job, he added. F i re f i g h t e r s a c ro s s Canada and the U.S. will be wearing pink T-shirts in October to support

the cause as part of their efforts to find a cure for the disease. Among Canadian women, breast cancer continues to be the most fre-

quently diagnosed cancer with an estimated 23,200 new cases diagnosed in 2010. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of

cancer mortality among women and takes the lives of approximately 5,400 people annually. “Everybody from top to bottom was on board right

City takes possession of Oceanview properties BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Property that was scheduled to be the site of a sprawling golf resort is now in the City of Nanaimo’s hands. Two properties at Oceanview Resort and Golf Course, formerly Cable Bay, were purchased by the city last Monday at a tax sale after the property’s owner, Canadian Property Investments, failed to pay about $100,000 in taxes over the past three years. The city purchased the 24-hectare parcel at 1170 Phoenix Way as

well as the 36.5-hectare parcel at 1270 Phoenix Way. Those properties were recently assessed at $2.3 million and $3.4 million respectively. The upset price was $39,858.62 for 1170 Phoenix Way and $60,990.12 for 1270 Phoenix Way, said Laura Mercer, spokeswoman for the city’s finance department. “They have one year to pay off all of the taxes owing and then they can get the property back,” she said. The city routinely purchases properties at the annual tax sale, both residential and commercial,

to give the owners an opportunity to keep their property and pay their taxes. The city’s goal, Mercer said, is to collect the taxes rather than have the property transferred. Kim Richard, spokesman for Canadian Property Investments, said that the company intends to move forward with the project once the economic climate improves. Canadian Property Investments purchased the entire 190-hectare piece of land for about $5 million and tried to flip it last year for $60 million with no takers. The project was the subject of

controversy in 2008 when its owners applied to move Nanaimo’s urban containment boundary to accommodate the design for the 18-hole golf course. That move was defeated through an alternative approval process. The property was successfully rezoned, however, into resort land, which many residents said compromised the Official Community Plan. The plan for the resort includes 2,677 multi-density housing units, an 18-hole golf course, spa, hotel and retail centre. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

University plays prominent role ◆ From /1 “Every city would be thrilled with a t e ch n o l o g y s e c t o r, but the reality is that we may need to find something different,” said Ruttan, who has been working closely with Bell’s ministry. “We want to find some niche markets. For example, there are lots of new wood fibre products being developed. We’re ready, we’ve got the infrastructure, Va n c o u ve r I s l a n d University will be able to provide training and what we’re trying to do is find something innovative, that is new and will create new positions.” A q u a c u l t u r e, a n industry both the city and VIU recognize as a possibility with large economic benefits, is another option, said Ruttan. Bell echoed the sentiment that VIU is an excellent resource and points to similar knowledge-based economic success in Kamloops and its partnership with T h o m p s o n R iv e r s University. “When I think about Nanaimo, the immediate opportunity that comes to mind for me is inter national education at Vancouver Island University,” he said. Bell also said the Community Safety And Crime Prevention

province is expanding international offices in growing markets like Japan, India, China and Korea, and once the city determines a direction it wants to take, those provincial resources will become available. “If those areas are of interest to Nanaimo then we would assist in facilitating the recruitment of international students and make sure that process is organized. Nanaimo would have access to all of the province’s facilities,” said Bell. Ruttan said he is optimistic about Nanaimo’s economic future and the possible sectors that can be pursued, but added job creation is new to municipalities and will take some time to develop. “Job creation has t r a d i t i o n a l ly b e e n the responsibility of provincial and federal governments,” he said. “We aren’t in much of a financial position as a city to generate much in the way of funding for these programs. “All we have to work with is development cost charges and property taxes but we’re looking forward to working with the provincial government while defining our own economic future.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Innovation celebration showcases businesses THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo boasts plenty of technology trailblazers and forward-thinking entrepreneurs. Of the 33 nominees for the Mid-Island Science Technology and Innovation Council’s Innovation Awards, announced last week, 11 are Harbour City businesses. Nominees manufacture products ranging from underwater inspection-class remotely operated vehicles to a non-toxic treatment for lice and pre-fabricated micro homes that have tiny physical and environmental footprints. “There’s a lot of [local] businesses that are competitive in world markets,” said Paris Gaudet, MISTIC executive director. “But the sector that we work with is very much a hidden sector.” The goal of the annual awards event – set for Nov. 2 at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre – is to shine a light on innovative, science and technology-based companies from Malahat North to the tip of the Island, the Sunshine Coast and the Gulf Islands, recognizing

their contribution to the local economy. Many of these companies have less than five employees and some have no visible storefront, so their names are not necessarily familiar to people, said Gaudet. “It’s really showcasing – or demystifying – what science and technology are,” she said. “People don’t know about what’s going on in their backyard. It gets people thinking about that culture of innovation.” The awards were created in 2006. This year’s 12 categories are: technology leade r s h i p, a dv a n c e d manufacturing, agri foods, digital media, emerging product, environmental excellence, excellence in innovation, information technology, innovative start-up of the year, value added product and a new category – young innovator award. Gaudet said the yo u n g i n n o v a t o r award was added this year to encourage youth to look at careers in science and technology and show them all the unique, innovative opportunities there are in these fields. Nanaimo nominees are: Seamor Marine

Ltd., iDus Controls, Qmata Technologies Inc., Ace Line Hauler, Nit Nannies, Inuktun Services Ltd., Resonance Software, Twelve Cubed, Island Daily Deals, ABC Precast & Ready Mix Ltd., and Riley Richters (young innovator). Winners will be announced Nov. 2 at the ceremony. Before the awards,

MISTIC will run a tradeshow from 8 a.m to 2 p.m., also at the VICC, showcasing the innovative products and services manufactured on the Island. Admission to the tradeshow is free. Tickets for the Innovation Awards are $95 and can be purchased online at www.mistic. ca.

Children benefit from centre’s services I FUNDRAISING GALA aims to reduce waiting list for programs. BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Almost 350 children are still waiting up to a year for services at the Nanaimo Child Development Centre. It’s an improvement from a few years ago when more than 400 children could wait up to two years for service, but the centre wants to reduce wait times even more. “To me it’s still horrendous. It’s hard to think of a family waiting that long but it’s still a far cry from two years,” said Michelle Kocourek, resource development for the CDC. Reducing wait times takes money. To raise funds to provide needed services to children, the CDC is hosting its sixth annual Opening Doors Gala: Teaming Up for a Better Tomorrow on Friday (Oct. 14) at the Coast Bastion Inn. The centre hopes to raise $20,000 to fund programs such as speech and occupational therapy. This year’s event features bronze medal Olympian Steve Podborski as the guest speaker and is hosted by popular television personality Bruce Williams. Andrea Forester, who has spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, helped plan the event for months, with her care attendant Christy Michel, and CDC staff Dino Tsembelis and Kocourek. The cause is close to Forester’s heart. She received help from the centre at age five. Now almost 30, she is trying to

Andrea Forester, left, and her care attendant Christy Michel have been busy helping to plan and promote the Child Development Centre’s Opening Doors Gala, on Friday (Oct. 14). Forester, who received help from the organization as a child, says money raised is important to help children access services and decrease the wait list.

give back to an organization that made such a difference in her childhood. “They need the money so they can hire the staff to help these kids,” said Forester. “I want the child development centre to keep helping kids.” Forester said she doesn’t remember the details of the occupational and speech therapy, but what stuck with her is how the therapists made it fun. She participated in activities that kept her engaged and they helped her gain valuable skills that she would use the rest of her life. The child development centre

helps kids in the community and when people donate, they know what the money is being used for, Forester said. At the gala, the centre is asking guests to donate based on hours, therapy or specific programs. A $60 donation gives a child one hour of therapy, while $420 will provide an assessment that includes seven hours of therapy, or allows a child to attend the 10-week Caterpillars to Butterflies program that helps children with social and emotional mental health issues. The gala includes dinner, auction and a raffle for a WestJet travel voucher for two to any

scheduled destination. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in their favourite team colours and jerseys, or as a tacky tourist, for the sports and travel theme. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the dinner begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $80, or $750 for a table of 10. Tax receipts will be issued in the amount of $30 for each ticket purchased. To buy tickets, please call Kocourek at 250-753-0251, ext. 227, e-mail michelle@nanaimocdc. com or drop by the centre, located at 1135 Nelson St. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

No movement on auditor’s land reserve recommendations BY JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS

Little to no action has been taken in the year since B.C.’s Auditor General red-flagged a series of big holes in the Agricultural Land Commission’s ability to protect farmland. Auditor General John Doyle’s original report in the fall of 2010 contained nine recommendations, some of them urging the ALC to fix inaccurate maps of Agricul-

tural Land Reserve boundaries and tighten enforcement against those who degrade farmland. The commission’s budget has been cut 30 per cent since 2002 and the audit had found the agency is underfunded and understaffed to carry out much of its duties. But in a new follow-up report, Doyle scolds the inaction over the past year. Nothing has been done with five recommendations and the rest are only partly implemented.

“I am disappointed that the ALC has made negligible progress,” he said in the report. The ALC tabled a new strategic vision for the future last November but the proposed new directions are stalled in Victoria because the provincial government has yet to make any decisions. On all nine of the original recommendations, Doyle’s report says the ALC is “awaiting direction from government.” The commission is seeking

The future food-growing productivity of the ALR continues to be damaged by illegal activity such as the dumping of construction material and tainted fill on farmland.

EDITORIAL

City struggles with economy As bleak as Nanaimo’s economy looks right now with the highest unemployment rate in the province, there does appear to be a light on the horizon, thanks in part to Premier Christy Clark’s job plan, but also because of the creation of the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation. While no government at any level has the ability to magically manufacture jobs, identifying potential and established infrastructure suggests Clark’s priorities are in the right place. But while formerly struggling cities like Kitimat and Prince Rupert have seemingly been gifted strong futures through the plan’s mining and natural gas focus, Nanaimo will have to fend for itself in determining which sector to pursue to create enough work for residents. Traditionally, federal and provincial governments have been responsible for job creation and economic stimulation. Now senior levels of government are essentially saying to cities, ‘tell us what you want your economy to be and we’ll see how we can help you’. Limited by revenue from property taxes, development cost charges and a few other nominal sources, it is a tremendous task with which to burden already overwhelmed cities. In Nanaimo, possibilities include aquaculture, which Vancouver Island University is wellinvested in; new wood fibre products that could be marketed in Asia; tourism; and attracting foreign students. While all of these are not sure-fire job manufacturers – everything succeeds or fails based on variables well beyond anyone’s control – they at least suggest that somebody has agreed to take the helm to provide direction. In Nanaimo, that task has been assigned to the new economic development corporation. It’s a big job, but then again, isn’t putting people to work what it’s all about?

Tired politics in need of fresh satire BY JIM ZEEBEN

I can remember the first political platform that I actually took the time to think about. It was on page 8 of the April 26, 1979, edition of the Ottawa Citizen in a story written by staff writer Linda Drouin. The article was about the unveiling of a local candidate in a federal political party. Their platform included a proposal to return to the British custom of driving on the left side of the road. In order to give Canadians time to adjust, the change would be done over a five-year period. In the first year, only trucks and buses would use the left side. The next year, “big American trucks” would make the switch, followed by small imported cars in the third year and, in the final year, two-wheeled vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and wheelchairs. On first read I crinkled my nose and looked around for someone to share my disbelief. Then I got it. The idea was meant to be ridiculous. I was still in elementary school, but the Rhino Party had made such an impression on me that I spent the next day trying to explain their politics to befuddled classmates. And while the image of cars caught up in a chaotic policy switch was silly enough to capture the imagination of an

11-year-old, the satire also helped shed some light on the very real issue of bureaucratic foolishness plaguing the government. Other Rhino policies of the day included leaving the corner of the dollar bill blank so cashiers could pencil in the value at the time of transaction. This in an era when most commentary about our battered currency was either dire or abstruse or both. The Rhinos made many issues facing Canadians accessible in ways that only good satire can. The humour offended some – the Rhinos actually had 53 candidates, which shocked plenty of people who didn’t have any sense of hee-haw. The original Rhino party disbanded in 1993, after a dispute about a new rule that required parties to run candidates in at least 50 ridings, with each paying a fee of $1,000. A new party bearing the Rhino flag was reborn in 2007 and fielded 14 candidates in the 2011 federal election. A dozen were in Quebec but B.C. and Alberta also had one candidate each. So far they’ve failed to capture Canadians’ imaginations on the scale their forebears did. Satire, as good as it is at shedding light on dense subjects, is very difficult to pull off well. Finding the right mix of irony and sarcasm is critical. It can come across as angry,

COMMENT

even hateful, if not done with care. At one time, satirical columns were common in newspapers but these days most editors are wary of risking the trust of readers. That, and the fact readers are inundated with websites that miss the mark when they attempt satire, but really deal in mock news that’s more misinformation than clever commentary. There are still great sources of satire, of course. Stephen Colbert remains hugely popular around the world and The Onion magazine’s website provides constant fodder for people to share through sites like Facebook. If you can relate to the Brits, the U.K. also continues to pump out comedians with that rare ability to skewer sacred institutions while tickling your funny bone. In Canada, Rick Mercer’s rants consistently find that sweet spot between comedy and crassness. And in the Capital Region, I suppose we’ve seen successful satire with the now-retired Mr. Floatie and his campaign for sewage treatment. I’m curious about the state of satire. I know many letter writers have a rapier-like wit and can take a poke at some of the issues affecting folks. But I wonder if it still has life? ◆ Jim Zeeben is editor of the Saanich News, a Black Press newspaper. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

School still People must be included in society in session for teachers To the Editor, Sometimes school is in session for teachers but not for students. On those days, family routines and childcare plans change. Even though students are not in school, teachers are working – developing their skills to enhance student learning. Those days are devoted to professional development, or PD. Topics for PD come from the classroom experience of learning and teaching. Teachers decide individually and together the issues to address. They work with their colleagues at their school, attend workshops and occasionally travel to conferences around the province. PD days are held throughout the year so that teachers can reflect on, and deal with, the emerging issues facing schools. For the teachers in the Nanaimo school district, plans for PD days are well underway. These plans are designed to enhance our teaching and take new skills and knowledge back to the classroom for the benefit of students. Teachers have a long history of working with parents to support their children’s learning. We know that when parents and teachers work together, they make a difference in the lives of children. Jan Thorsen PD chairwoman Nanaimo District Teachers Association

To the Editor, I am very saddened by the response by north-end residents about social housing in the north end of Nanaimo. We live close to downtown in a condo where there is social housing in the area. We live next to an apartment building which, when we moved here seven years ago, was the pride of the block. It was beautifully maintained, including its gardens. There were tenants who had lived there long term. It was sold to someone who lives not a million miles from the area in dispute for social housing. All the decent tenants who

can afford it have moved. The building falls increasingly into decay, tenanted mostly by drug addicts. The RCMP has threatened to declare it a nuisance building. Please remember that this is a privately owned building, not social housing. I heard recently that the owner of the building has bought a bigger apartment building on Uplands Drive. My heart goes out to the tenants of that building. About all that I can say to north-end residents is that, if you think social housing is bad, just wait. Do the north-end residents

Perform own research with smart meters To the Editor, Re: Dumb leaders attack smart meters, B.C. Views, Oct. 6 Tom Fletcher’s article in which he calls our municipal leaders dumb – yes, you heard it right – only proves that he is the true member of “the dumb and misinformed” club. I suppose that Lloyd’s of London is truly dumb since they have stopped providing liability insurance to companies that install cell towers and other Wi-Fi technology. I suppose the economist that recently stated in the Globe and Mail that Wi-Fi could collapse the global economy should it prove to be the next asbestos is bordering on the classification of moron. I encourage everyone who reads this to search ‘smart meters’ on the Internet and

start following the links – don’t be misled by Fletcher’s clearly transparent governmentcorporate partisanship. I then encourage you take a stand along with the “tiny group of protestors” to which he also refers in his article. James G. Smith Nanaimo

Companies should err on the side of caution To the Editor, Are smart meters safe? I don’t think anyone knows for sure. But considering past regulatory approvals of thalidomide, UFFI insulation and aluminum residential wiring, the record for agencies getting safety issues right is less than stellar. Therefore, if some B.C. Hydro customers want to err on the side of caution, they should have the right to do so. The claim that mechanical

landlords are the problem. We see drug dealing going on. Often, it is well-dressed people waiting to pick up. Some of them may come from the north end. To the residents of the north end, you need to get rid of your “silo” mentality. We need to include, not exclude people. You can put as much “lipstick on the pig” as you like, but the truth is that you are worried about your property values. In the current financial climate, there, but for the grace of God, go you.

As well, the consumer benefits from smart meters seem highly overrated. There are still many hydro customers who can figure out that lights and appliances that are turned off use less power than those that are turned on. What this really boils down to is a customer’s right to choose against a monopoly’s right to do as it pleases. In virtually all other cases customers have the right to buy or not to buy a product, whether their reasons are sound or frivolous.

Even if some day it is proven that smart meters pose no health hazards, in the meantime, forcing citizens to constantly live with a device that causes them stress and anxiety definitely is a health hazard.

Refugee family welcomed to new Harbour City home It takes a whole community to welcome a family, and the Nanaimo Refugee Sponsorship Group said thanks for the effort. The group sponsored Ashraf, Hala and Abdullah Auqab, a Palestinian family which spent the last six years in the El Hol refugee camp in Syria. On Oct. 2, the family was officially welcomed to Nanaimo with a dinner at St. Andrew’s United Church. The event was also a thank you to all the people in the community who made this sponsorship possible. Special recognition was given to children and young people who initiated creative fundraising ideas. Ashraf Auqab spoke on behalf of his wife and son, thanking the people for not

only bringing them to Nanaimo, but for providing a warm and generous welcome. As Nanaimo awaits the arrival of its second sponsored family, other Island communities have been inspired to sponsor. Eight churches in Cedar, Ladysmith and Chemainus are working with their communities to bring another family of three to Vancouver Island. Comox and Courtenay plan to sponsor a family of five and discussions are underway in Victoria to initiate a sponsorship. Three Anglican churches in Victoria already sponsored three families more than a year ago. “People involved in the sponsorship recognize that Nanaimo has its own important issues around poverty and homelessness

which need to be addressed by all citizens,” said Eva Manly of the refugee sponsorship group. “At the same time we want to thank everyone who shares in our small contribution to a massive world problem.”

Youth serve in politics

I

PARTICIPANTS TAKE part in legislative work over winter holidays.

The B.C. Youth Parliament is after 95 young men and women to visit Victoria this Christmas, debate important service projects to benefit the youth of the province, and put those plans in place in 2012. Community and youth leaders across the province have until Oct. 26 to nominate young people to take part in this opportunity. “BCYP is education and community service in action,” said Jessica McElroy, premier for the upcoming year of youth parliament. “We’re after young people who want to learn more about our system of government, make lifelong friends, and take part in proj-

ects that benefit our province’s youth.” The youth parliament is a nonpartisan, non-demoninational service organization. Members spend time at the legislature in Victoria between Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve to debate and vote on the organization’s proposed activities and issues of local, national, and international importance. All sit as independents, and are free to vote according to their conscience on the issues. Potential BCYP members must be: between 16 and 21 years of age; residents of the province for the past year; able to commit to a year’s worth of service; and interested in learning more about how the democratic system works. More information and membership applications are available online at www.bcyp.org.

When it comes to meal convenience Rawmbas Restaurant, located at 101-572 Stewart Avenue in Nanaimo, has redefined the meaning of fast food take-out. Rawmbas’ owners, a family affair, along with Raw Food Chef and mentor Diana Marchand are committed to offering 100-per cent gluten free, dairy free delicious popular vegan meals such as wraps, pizza, burgers and smoothies. Rawmbas menu is as fresh and flavourful as it gets. The smoothies, made with no additives, are branded with names like Green Dream, Fancy Footwork, Rocksteady Berry and Living Green to name a few and the absolutely mouth-watering wraps, pizza and burgers are all made in-house. Rawmbas is worth venturing in for a sumptuous meal whether it be the “already becoming famous” pizza starting with a creamy cashew cheese, layered upon a sprouted buckwheat and sundried tomato pizza crust, heaped with marinated veggies and topped with a tangy ranch dressing or perhaps the spicy falafel balls loaded into a house veggie wrap layered with creamy humus, tzatziki, fresh greens, cucumber, shredded carrot, tomato and sprouts. The menu offers other recognizable food that is

unequalled in terms of freshness and nutrition. In consideration of the many for whom coffee is an experience as well as a desire, Rawmbas offers a full coffee indulgence which includes milk and whipped cream along with non-dairy alternatives such as almond and soy milk so everyone can enjoy their lattes and cappuccinos to their liking. Rawmbas coffee is rich, full flavoured, award winning, organic and fair trade. For those with Celiac Sprue disease, Rawmbas is a take-out dream come true as there is no chance of cross contamination. It is therefore a perfect fit for Rawmbas Restaurant to support the Canadian Celiac Disease Association and any donations or tips they receive are committed to this worthy cause. Sustainability is part of Rawmbas’ mission alongside their promise to provide healthy cuisine and fast friendly service. The take-away food containers and smoothie cups are made from 100 per cent renewable and certified compostable biodegradable products. Rawmbas has its official “Grand Opening” on Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be gifts, give-a-ways, free samples of their scrumptious food and smoothies. For further information please call Rawmbas Restaurant at 250-5912114.

Concerto contest seeks musicians

Liszt feted with piano concert

Young musicians have the opportunity to win a spot to play with a full string orchestra. The Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra seeks applications for its sixth annual Young Musician’s Concerto Competition in February. Open to musicians 21 years old or younger, the competition is announced with plenty of time for students to work with their teacher to prepare a piece of work. The orchestra hosts the competition as part of its mandate to provide mentorship, encouragement and opportunities for promising young students. The orchestra hopes students choose to participate in auditions. SEAMAS FINNERTY The winner and the runner-up receive cash prizes, with the winner featured as the guest artist for the orchestra’s two concerts in June. Students who previously auditioned are encouraged to do so again, having had another year of development under their belts. Over the past five years, the orchestra featured two violinists, a bassoonist, a flutist and a pianist, each playing a full concerto. Last year’s winner, Seamas Finnerty, won $500 and played Haydn’s Piano Concerto in D with the orchestra in Nanaimo. The Grade 11 student at Nanaimo District Secondary School earned his Grade 10 in piano, under the direction of Lynn Gauthier, and continues to study the instrument.

To celebrate the 200th birthday of one of history’s great composers, pianist Sayuri Kubota performs a concert of his work. Kubota’s second piano recital features the music of Franz Liszt as well as that of some of her favourite composers, Schumann and Chopin. The composers lived during the same period and were friends. Kubota began piano lessons at age four and while she wanted to be a professional musician she became a math teacher instead. Piano became her hobby until she moved to Canada in 1992. Despite the busy life of a high school teacher and mother, she resumed piano lessons with Teresa Marusarz-Borek more than six years ago. Since then, Kubota performed regularly at recitals and master classes in Nanaimo. Kubota performs Saturday (Oct. 15), 7:30 p.m., at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. Admission by donation, with proceeds to Nanaimo Conservatory of Music.

Notice of Public Open House Session Moorecroft Regional Park Management Plan

Crews wrap filming near Cassidy BY MATTHEW PETERSON BLACK PRESS

Faster than a speeding bullet, the new Superman movie Man of Steel wrapped up filming in Cassidy. A spokesperson for the film Autumn Frost, the code name reportedly being used for the Superman movie, said the crew of around 240, including 38 local extras, were at the site of the Cassidy Pub off the TransCanada Highway for two days

on Wednesday and Thursday. Crews filmed on a closed set, which meant no media access and little revealed as to what role the pub and the local actors play in the film, set for release in 2013. Several logging trucks were brought in for the shoot, along with some out-of-season snow. It fits in with a casting call in Nanaimo a few months ago, which called for extras who fit a hard-working lumberjack profile. Hundreds of hopefuls

lined up outside the Coast Bastion Inn for a chance at a spot in the film. Filming also took place in Ucluelet and Vancouver, as well as locations in the U.S. “It’s been great,” said the spokesperson. “It’s pretty quick, in and out, but it’s always nice to be on the Island. It’s beautiful, as long as the rain holds off.” The movie stars Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe and Amy Adams.

The Regional District of Nanaimo, Recreation and Parks Department, is currently developing a management plan for Moorecroft Regional Park. Residents of the Regional District of Nanaimo are invited to attend the first Public Open House Session to share ideas and help shape the future of Moorecroft Regional Park.

Saturday, October 22, 2011 12:00pm - 4:00pm Kennedy Lodge (in the park) 1563 Stewart Rd Nanoose Bay For information, please contact Kelsey Cramer, RDN Park Planner at moorecroft@rdn.bc.ca or 1-888-828-2069.

WHITE, Dr. Lloyd Archibald January 7, 1942 ~ October 2, 2011 It is with great sadness we announce the sudden, yet peaceful, passing of Dr. Lloyd Archibald White at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on Sunday, October 2, 2011, with his son by his side. Lloyd is survived by his daughter; Laurel (Don) Burgess of Bermuda; son, Aaron (Lauren) of Saskatoon, SK; and grandchildren: Jackson, Abigail and Seth, who he described as the “apples of his eye.” He is also survived by his father, Earl; brothers: Philip (Darline), Lee (Dawnelda), and William; as well as his niece, Adrienne (Alex) and nephew, Curtis (Deanna). He will be deeply missed by many cousins, colleagues and friends; as well as his beloved cat, Katie. He was predeceased by his mother, Ethel (nee Cox), and an infant sister. Lloyd was born on January 7, 1942 in Truro, NS. He was educated at town and county schools, and went on to receive his B.Sc. (Acadia), M.Sc., (Guelph-OAC) and Ph.D. in Microbiology (Macdonald-McGill). He was a long time Public Servant for the Department of National Defense, developing strategies to defend our country against biological warfare agents. He was employed at the Defense Research Board of Canada in Suffield, AB, and served at DND National Headquarters in Ottawa, before retiring to Nanaimo, BC. He lived his life constantly exploring, through his work as a scientist, his canoe trips in Canada’s west and north, in his motor home throughout North America, and on his many travels around the globe. He was a loving father, an adoring grandfather, a die-hard hockey fan and former coach, and an avid supporter of the Conservative party. A Memorial Service will be held at the R.C. Legion #256, 1630 Wellington Rd E, Nanaimo, on Friday, October 14, 2011 at 2:00pm. With a lunch afterwards.. Interment in Truro, NS will follow later this month. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Lloyd to Acadia University Associated Alumni (giving.acadiau.ca), 512 Main Street, Wolfville, NS, B4P 2R6. “We love you, Dad. Thank you for passing on your adventurous spirit.” Telford’s of Nanaimo 250-591-6644

 Kenneth

(Ken)

George D’Orsay June 21 1944 ~ Sept. 28, 2011 It is with great sadness and heartache that we announce the sudden passing of Kenneth (Ken) George D’Orsay on Wednesday, September 28, 2011, following a very short battle with cancer. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on June 21, 1944, Ken was the adopted son, and only child of loving parents, Mary and James D’Orsay. At age 50, following a long and eventful search, Ken found and met his birth mother, Betty; 5 siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins, many of whom resided in Fox Harbour, Newfoundland. He, and they, were thrilled and their love flourished and grew. The majority of Ken’s career was in the forest industry, driving logging truck and as camp manager at various locations up and down the West Coast, the interior of BC and in Haida Gwaii. He was well known for his abilities in conflict resolution and his firm, but fair work ethic. He also drove fuel truck, city bus and most recently, in retirement, was a courier for LifeLabs. Ken had a lifelong passion for the sea and sailing, and was a member of the Nanaimo Yacht Club and the Canadian Power Squadron. He enjoyed motorcycling and playing guitar and piano, singing many a jaunty east coast ditty. He was a long-time friend of Bill W. Ken’s most memorable talent was his ability to “tell his story,” for the benefit and mentorship of others, with impeccable timing, wonderful humour and heartfelt emotion and compassion. Ken is predeceased by his parents: birth mother; stepson, Jim Hughes and his special friend and sidekick of 18 years, Simba. He is survived and sorely missed by his loving wife, Robin (Humphrey); 5 step-sons, 2 stepdaughters, 4 siblings and their families. Our heartfelt thanks and appreciation are extended to Dr. Davies, Dr. McLaughlan, Dr. Roe and the nurses and staff on the 3rd and 5th floors of the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, for their compassionate care and concern... and, by the way, he loved the food. Ken’s love and friendships will last our lifetime, and his spirit lives on in the hearts of all who experienced the gift of having met this wonderful man. May your soul fly away briefly, and with its rebirth, the world will, again, be an even better place. A Celebration of Ken’s Life will be held on Sunday, October 16, 2011 at the Coast Bastion Inn, Nanaimo, BC at 1:00p.m. In lieu of flowers, we strongly encourage donations to Canadian Cancer Society for Bile Duct Cancer Research or the Nanaimo Hospice Society (250-758-8857)

Clippers: ‘It’s there for the taking’ Inbrief

Long weekend delays scores

New forward Fitzgerald brings winning mindset to Nanaimo franchise BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

revor Fitzgerald only knows junior A hockey at its highest level. The Nanaimo Clippers newcomer has been to the Royal Bank Cup national championship tournaments the past two springs with his former team, the Vernon Vipers. He knows what it takes, so to speak, and there’s good news: the Clippers have the makings of a championship team. But so do 15 other clubs around the the B.C. Hockey League. “Every team’s got it,” Fitzgerald said. “I think the difference is just how much you want it. Some teams want it more than others.” Differences in size and skill are less pronounced at playoff time, the veteran said, and it comes down to character, the willingness to battle. “We have the makings of it if we want it. It’s there for the taking.” This time of year is a starting point, when all the pieces are starting to fit together. Fitzgerald is one newcomer among many on the 2011-12 Clippers, but he was perhaps the most highly touted off-season acquisition. Traded from his hometown Vipers to the Prince George Spruce Kings in the off-season, Fitzgerald wasn’t thrilled about playing in P.G. and requested a

trade. Prince George was willing to deal him, but only for a Spruce Kings’ ransom – Fitzgerald, blueliner Josh Bryan and another player were swapped for Gerry, Myles and Leo Fitzgerald and defence prospect Jesse Ursic. The triplets were Nanaimo’s most popular players last year and are off to a hot start in P.G., but the Clippers’ new Fitzgerald said there’s no point feeling any pressure that way. “There’s not much I can do, other than do my best and show the fans that I want to be here,

that the trade was worth it,” he said. Clippers fans won’t have any complaints so far. Trevor Fitzgerald couldn’t have had much of a better debut in orange and black, scoring a huge game-saving goal with 30 seconds left in the season opener in Powell River. At press time he was the team’s leading scorer with three goals and three assists in five games. It’s the sort of offensive output Mike Vandekamp had hoped for when he traded for the veteran. ◆ See ‘FITZGERALD’ /33

Nanaimo sports fans have a lot of good teams to be thankful for at this time of year, but readers will have to wait a couple more days to find out about those teams’ accomplishments. Due to early deadlines necessitated by the long weekend, sports scores from the past few days were not available at press time. The big game saw the V.I. Raiders and Okanagan Sun do battle Sunday in Kelowna for first place in the B.C. Football Conference. For a recap, please visit www.nanaimobulletin. com.

Fitzgerald called upon for leadership, scoring ◆ From /32 The Shipmen knew the 6-foot-1, 190 pounder would bring size, grit and leadership, but they also felt he could regain the offensive flair he showed in junior B when he scored 67 points in 49 games with the North Okanagan Knights. Fitzgerald said he’ll score goals any way he can. “I’ll stand in front of the net and bang home a couple of rebounds, I’ll shoot the puck, do whatever I can to put the puck in the net.” Fitzgerald – and the rest of the Clippers – always know where they stand,

as the coaching staff holds players accountable for every mistake they make within a structured system. But as long as everyone’s buying in and working hard, the Clippers will be able to separate themselves from those other 15 BCHL teams. “We set goals for every game and we’re reaching more of those,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s showing in the win column.” GAME ON … The Clippers face the Victoria Grizzlies on the road Wednesday (Oct. 12) at 7:15 p.m. at Bear Mountain Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
