Sewer connection demands start trickling in to city BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Merve Wilkinson looks over a portion of his Wildwood property in Yellow Point in 2008. The outspoken advocate for sustainable forestry practices died last week. He was 97. NEWS BULLETIN FILE

Legendary eco-forester leaves sustainable legacy BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

A

man who stood defiant on a logging road to block clearcutting in the Clayoquot will see his legacy of sustainable forestry continue. Merve Wilkinson, founder of Wildwood in Yellow Point, died last week at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. He was 97. Jay Rastogi, the site steward at Wildwood, remembers Wilkinson for his stories about Nanaimo and how the community changed since Wilkinson purchased the property in 1938. “He had a passion for a whole range of things,” Rastogi said. Paramount was Wilkinson’s love of nature and the 55-hectare forest he logged sustainably, never taking more than the forest could naturally regenerate. Wildwood became a source for university students and educators from around the world interested in researching Wilkinson’s practices. He was less popular with local politicians and forestry experts, who disagreed with his philosophy for

forest management. “He was a strong personality,” Rastogi said. Wilkinson was one of 850 protestors arrested in the War in the Woods in 1993, defying a B.C. Supreme Court injunction to allow logging to continue in the old-growth forest. The sentencing judge at court described Wilkinson as unrepentant. Rastogi met Wilkinson soon after moving to Victoria in 1997. Wildwood attracted Rastogi’s attention and interest, particularly because he was part of a similar operation owned by his uncle in Ontario. “I started to do more of the work around the place,” Rastogi said. A lasting friendship soon formed over the pair’s discussion of forestry practices, Rastogi sharing his science

background with Wilkinson’s intrinsic knowledge of the forest. “It was a great partnership,” Rastogi said. To preserve Wildwood for the future, Wilkinson and his partner sold the property to the Land Conservancy in 2000. The land protection organization manages the forest and the workshops available for the public and university students hosted throughout the year. Bill Turner, executive director for the conservancy, said in a press release that Wilkinson was a visionary, a teacher, an inspiration and a great friend. “I will always remember the many opportunities I had to sit and talk with Merve, to listen to his stories and to share in his determination to make things better,” Turner said. “A man like Merve comes around very rarely and I am honoured to have known him.” Wilkinson, who was named to the Order of Canada in 2002, will have his land continue to educate people for years to come. “There’s still so much to learn,” Rastogi said. Wilkinson is survived by his three children and multiple foster children. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Residents on Stamp Way in Departure Bay are growing concerned their aging septic fields won’t hold up until sanitary sewer services are installed. Five households on the seven-proper ty street signed a petition in July asking to be given the same consideration as Green Lake residents for sewer hookup, which waives the mandatory $1,800 connecting fee for a 12-month period. Since amalgamation in 1975, Green Lake residents were promised sewer hookup and city council finally promised delivery of the sewers in June, voting to cover the $3.2-million installation cost for the 107 property owners. Marilyn Marshall, a Stamp Way resident of 25 years, said people on her street were similarly promised sewer hookup more than three decades ago, and they’re still waiting. “Our septic tank is 32 years old and a septic tank’s lifespan is 30 years. By law you have to dig it up at that point and start over and that is very costly and not something we want to do if we know sewers are coming,” said Marshall. “We feel that the sewer hookup is still owed to us. Meanwhile, we’re sitting here biting our nails not knowing whether or not the septic tank is going to fail between now and then.” She added that at least one neighbour’s tank is already producing unpleasant odours.

Residents at Green Lake found themselves in a similar situation and leaching from the tanks had a negative environmental impact on the lake itself, according to a provincial report. Sewer lines were installed down the street last year, but residents have not yet been allowed to tap into it. Tom Kraft, engineering project manager for the city, said connecting the residents of Stamp Way is on the city’s radar, though it will be up to council to decide if the connection fee is temporarily waived. “The sanitary sewer in question on Stamp Way is constructed and they are waiting for confirmation from the developer’s engineer that it has been tested and is ready for commissioning,” he said. “We haven’t accepted maintenance on it yet so technically the city does not own it at this point. We simply assume it then take on responsibility for operation and maintenance, but it’s also up to the developer to confirm that the sewer is ready to be accepted by the taxpayers.” When it agreed to accommodate Green Lake residents in June by building and paying for a sewer line, council knew it was leaving the door open for other areas to ask for similar treatment. Areas in Nanaimo not serviced include 25 lots along Stephenson Point Road, 125 lots on Jingle Pot, 20 lots at Western Acres and four lots on Maki Road.

Two brownfield sites in Nanaimo can begin the process of recovery and redevelopment after receiving financial help from the province. Through the provincial government’s Brownfield Renewal Funding Program, the city will receive $50,750 to clean up land on Boxwood Road. The work will prepare for an ambitious project connecting Boxwood Road to Dufferin Crescent in the south and Rosstown Road to the north to address traffic congestion in the busy passenger vehicle and industrial corridor. Remediation of the site, which contains pollution from coal mining and debris dumping, is required before roadwork can begin. Nanaimo Shipyards Limited on Stewart Avenue will also benefit from the announcement. It will receive $47,776 to determine the state of that site and start remediation planning. The location was used for decades as an industrial site and must be cleaned up before it is transformed into a planned mixed-use residential and commercial waterfront development.

Opposition to water projects minimal CITY PLANS to borrow $22.5 million.

I

BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo city council will move ahead to borrow money to complete a new water treatment facility after voter opposition fell considerably short. An alter native approval process, which closed Aug. 31, required 6,268 (10 per cent of Nanaimo’s electorate) valid response forms to defeat the bylaw that would enable council to borrow $22.5 million toward a $65-mil-

lion South Fork Water Treatment facility. The city received three forms of opposition in response. If the bylaw was defeated, council said it would have put the issue to a referendum tied to the November municipal election. Failing that, water rates for Nanaimo residents would have increased about 80 per cent for the next three years to collect the required capital for the project. Instead, the city can now secure the $22.5million loan, which will also trigger $17.8 million in federal and provincial funding, $10 million from the Community Works Fund,

$5.9 million in development cost charges and $8.8 million from water user rates. “Construction of the water treatment plant will ensure Nanaimo’s water supply meets federal and provincial drinking water standards,” said Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan. In 2008, secondary water treatment to address viruses, bacteria, protozoa and turbidity was ordered by VIHA in order to meet Canadian Drinking Water Quality Guidelines. In order to keep its permit to operate the city’s water supply, Nanaimo must build the new treatment centre,

which will be located off South Forks Road near Nanaimo River Road. It is expected to be completed by spring 2015. A parallel counter petition regarding a $2.5-million project to establish emergency water access through the Harmac pulp mill’s supply received two elector response forms, giving that project approval as well. Both Harmac and the city will share in the cost. The agreement has a 30-year term. Crews will be gin work on a pipeline and pump station this fall to provide the city with water in the event the main water systems

are damaged or require shutdown. The city must obtain elector approval when borrowing money for a term longer than five years.

A standoff between the owners of Compassion Farm and the District of Lantzville council over urban agriculture is at a crossroads. In July, Lantzville served Compassion Farm with a notice advising Dirk Becker and Nicole Shaw to come under bylaw compliance or face legal action. In response, Becker and Shaw’s lawyer, William Andrews, sent council a note on Tuesday questioning the district’s use of its powers in what he calls a neighbourly disagreement. Compassion Farm was cited last fall as operating in contravention to Lantzville’s zoning bylaw after a formal complaint was filed by a neighbour over the odour of manure, which was used to fertilize the farm’s garden. Becker and Shaw were issued a 180-day cease-and-desist order, but continued to operate the residentially zoned property as an urban garden, prompting council to issue a legal threat to force compliance. Andrews, based in North Vancouver, said in his letter the issue should not only be solved out of court, but in a more respectful manner that doesn’t involve favouring one neighbour over the next. “For whatever reason,” he wrote, “the district has gotten itself into a situation of using the powers of local government on behalf of one neighbour against the other. With respect, I don’t think that is appropriate.” Mayor Colin Haime has emphasized growing food and selling it at farmers’ markets isn’t as much the issue as the process it takes to grow it, which requires large amounts of manure on the property.

He says it’s not a personal attack on Compassion Farm and that the district is working on a new bylaw that will embrace regulated urban agriculture for all residents of Lantzville. He maintains, however, that Compassion Farm remains in non-compliance and the district will pursue compliance as it would with any other case. “It’s not unexpected that an individual who is participating in an activity would challenge whether or not the activity is legal,” said Haime. “We believe that our bylaws have been violated and we believe our bylaws need to be enforced. We’ve attempted to propose a way where we weren’t required to go to court in order to address the concerns that we have with regards to manure. So from that standpoint, at the moment our council’s position is that we intend to proceed.” In his letter, Andrews says that despite the differing views between the neighbours in esthetics, both uses of the respective acreages are legitimate uses of residential property. “My clients have a very presentable house and a beautifully landscaped garden ... On the complaining neighbour’s property there is a mansion-style house at the end of a long, wide driveway flanked by graded flat lawns. Clearly, my clients and this neighbour have applied different esthetics in the development of their respective residential properties.” Becker said he is tired of operating day-to-day “with a sword above our heads, you know, ‘be careful or we’re going to court, but if you do this, this and this we might not go to court.’ It’s no fun, we’re at the 11-month mark and I am, frankly, worn out.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

TTrustees expecting busy start to school year I JOB ACTION one of several issues having effect on district. BY JENN MCGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

N

anaimo educators are sharpening their pencils and readying their day planners for a busy start to the school year. Sharon Welch, Nanaimo school board chairwoman, said the first two months are going to be hectic for trustees and schools, with several reports that will affect district operations coming to trustees, teacher job action set to begin today (Sept. 6) and an upcoming trustee election. “It’s going to be a really, really busy fall,” she said. Phase 1 of job action will mean teachers won’t participate in administrative or supervision duties, but Welch said the district has a plan in place to ensure students are affected as little as possible. For example, staff from the district office will go to schools to supervise students when they are not in classrooms. “It’s going to be a hard time, but

the teachers are doing what they have to do and we’re doing what we have to do,” she said. Reviews of different aspects of the district’s operations are also forthcoming. A human resources review, conducted by B.C. Public School Employers’ Association staff over the summer, was received

by the board last week. The review found that the department lacks direction and guidance and training for new employees. Trustees approved the report’s recommendations to hire both an associate superintendent of human resources to develop a strategic plan for the depart-

TTeachers refusing administrative duties in Phase 1 of job action ◆ From /1 During Phase 1 of job action, teachers will continue to teach in classrooms but will not perform administrative tasks such as filling out forms, collecting data, meeting with principals or other administrators. Teachers will also not be supervising playgrounds or writing report cards. Management and other staff not part of a union will supervise students alongside principals and vice-principals during lunch and recess, said Hutchinson. Management could be expected to work additional hours to carry out their regular duties and each area manager will determine what, if any, duties might be postponed during the job action. “If they move to more stringent restrictions or even a strike, then clearly the impact will be more significant,” said Hutchinson.

a report on what is needed to turn the Rotary Bowl into a multi-use facility will also come to the board in the next two months. Welch hopes trustees will start making decisions about each of those reports before a new board is elected in November, although some decisions may be postponed until after the election. Derek DeGear, president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, hopes to see a mix of old and new trustees on the new school board and a board that is willing to advocate strongly for good learning conditions in classrooms. Lower class sizes and more support for teachers are two things DeGear would like to see this year. “We’ve got some work in front of us with bargaining, with our job action, and I’m hoping that pays off,” he said. The district’s new superintendent, Dave Hutchinson, who started work last month, is looking forward to the startup of full-day kindergarten across the district – last year almost half of Nanaimo schools still had a halfday program. “Everything is ready to go,” he said.

How will teachers’ job action affect classes?

Derek DeGear, president of the Nanaimo District Teachers’ Association, said the job action will give teachers more energy and time to focus on the aspects of teaching most important for students, such as fostering a love of learning through hands-on activities. “I’m excited teachers won’t have to do some of the more onerous activities,” he said. Hutchinson said the district is sending a letter home to parents on Sept. 6 with information on teacher job action and the information will also be posted online at www.sd68.bc.ca.

ment and a manager of labour relations. “I think it’s really going to help us be more efficient,” Welch said. “If we’re going to go after the government for more resources, we have to make sure we’re being efficient with the resources we already have.” A review of the district’s French immersion program – looking at both the program itself and the facilities used – will also be made public this month. “I would like to see some clarity around which facilities should house French immersion programs and how we can best organize them so we deal with the overcrowding at the elementary level and the extra spaces at the secondary level,” said Welch. “I’d like to see us make a plan in terms of the fall of 2012.” The board will initiate a review of its own committees this fall. Welch said the district has a number of committees and trustees want to make sure they are operated as efficiently as possible and staff are not burning out because they attend too many meetings. Trustees will also receive recommendations from staff on ways to improve use of information technology in schools, while

Wilkinson left weighty g y legacy g y Merve Wilkinson promoted sustainable living before it was popular. He lived in a forest that was selectively logged multiple times to show that it was possible to live off the land without destroying the forest. When people in power made decisions he disagreed with, he was unafraid to question them, and he openly voiced his disdain for governments pandering to private forest companies. He stood behind his WILDWOOD protesting convictions, FOUNDER clear-cut logging in left legacy Clayoquot Sound, despite everyone can the threat of arrest. learn from and He garnered respect and friendship from leaders emulate. from all over the world in not only forestry, but also conservation and environmentalism. He did all this from his 55-hectare property in Yellow Point called Wildwood, a place that attracts international experts, university students and anyone with an interest in forestry to learn from Wilkinson’s teachings. Despite his death last week at the age of 97, Wilkinson also had the foresight to ensure his legacy lives on by entrusting his beloved property to The Land Conservancy to continue holding workshops and other educational opportunities for the public. A fitting tribute to the Member of the Order of Canada would be some kind of permanent memorial recognizing the contribution Wilkinson made to sustainable forest practices. Renaming of a woodlot, building or program at Vancouver Island University would be a start. To truly honour Wilkinson, however, would be to see his vision and legacy at Wildwood grow and expand, to show that people can live and use the land without decimating the habitat of other living creatures for our own selfish gain.

I’m excited about the French immersion report, which should contain some solutions to a few of the district’s facilities problems. Schools that offer French immersion are overcrowded, with students sprawling out into portables, while others have empty classrooms. It only makes sense to try to distribute students more equally across the district, although whether this means the province will fund school upgrades and replacements remains to be seen. One project that could finally come to fruition in the near future is the seismic upgrading of Wellington Secondary School, as preliminary discussions with the Education Ministry encouraged district staff to submit an application for final funding approval. And trustees have already vowed to continue working on the province for upgrades to or replacement of Woodlands Secondary School – much needed not only because it is old, but also because the school was originally built as a junior high. Staff are also working on a plan to replace the half-size gym at Hammond Bay Elementary School with a full-size gym – also desperately needed unless some of the students are funnelled into another school. Stay tuned for more on all of these issues. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Better choice needed for city’s mayor To the Editor, Re: Ruttan first to reveal re-election intentions, Sept. 1. I like Mayor John Ruttan. I think of the three choices we had last time, he was the best. But, I truly hope that this time around, we get a better choice. I can’t believe anybody still thinks another hotel downtown will solve the problems there. Ruttan seems to be stuck in a time warp on that issue. And I support the ferry connection to Vancouver. No single project will do more to benefit our economy than this one. I know, as do most others, that this is not a viable option without some form of taxpayer subsidy. And I’m not against subsidizing this; we all benefit, we should all pay. However, Nanaimo ratepayers are about to be taxed well beyond our means. We have to pay for a new water treatment plant, a new annex building and perhaps a new dam. Plus all other rates for services are about to go through the roof. We simply can’t afford to subsidize another project, even though the benefits would far exceed the costs. It’s clear, despite all the rhetoric, this mayor has committed us to paying a high price for projects that will not have an economic return, while the one project that will get us ahead is being allowed to languish. I really do hope we get a better choice for mayor this time around. Dan Appell Nanaimo

Discussions on HST needed much earlier

WebW WORDS Reader feedback posted @ www.nanaimobulletin.com In response to our story, ‘RDN opposes Telus wireless tower proposed for Cedar’ posted on Aug. 30: ◆ John_RC wrote: “Let’s face it, everyone wants cellphone coverage, but how are we going to do that?” BS. I’m a resident and I don’t have nor want cellphone coverage. I admit most do though. Congratulations to the NRD and local residents concerned about the health of our community. It would have been nice for the article to explain “Safety code 6”. I have found this code only addresses the heating effects of electromagnetic radiation. When one chooses to be concerned about all the other potential effects on the human body from electromagnetic radiation from cell towers, living at least 1.2 km from a tower if one has children is a commonly offered precaution. Good advice, especially at least until Telus and the other neighbourhood radiators decide to evaluate health effects other than just the direct heating up of local residents. There are other locations in Cedar for the tower in the same area that will have a lot fewer residents and no school in any 1.2km radius of concern.

To the Editor, Re: ‘People’s victory’ means pain ahead, B.C. Views, Sept. 1. Tom Fletcher and the other apologists for this sad, discredited and ultimately expensive attempt to slip a tax program past an unknowing and possibly unwilling electorate just don’t seem to get it. What we are talking about here is arrogance in power. The merits of the harmonized sales tax versus PST/GST systems can be debated, and should have been, leading up to and during the last election. Unfortunately, such discussions didn’t happen. Rather than going to the polls to get a mandate for their “excellent plan”, the B.C. Liberal government chose to lie to the public to retain power. The sad thing is there is no real evidence to show they would have necessarily lost if they had been up front with the public. But, the desire to cling to office rode roughshod over any democratic discussion on the relative merits of their proposed tax changes. Even granting the Gordon Campbell government’s dubious timeline leading up to their decision to proceed with the HST, no one seriously considered what the people think about this. No. When all was said and done, the

Important aspects of Labour Day lost, forgotten To the Editor, The labour movement is part of humanity’s searching for freedom. Labour unions, or organized labour, arose in the mid 1800s with a set of values (less and less respected these days) – that of solidarity, the good of the whole, mutual assistance, equality, esprit de corps, support for families, disdain for elitism, and that democracy and individual rights do not stop at the workers’ gate. Employees and labourers united for mutual protection and just rights. The labour union movement developed ‘weapons’ – education (supporting freedom) and the strike.

Many discovered strength in unity and to “wrest from monied interests decent wages, better living conditions and leisure, the right of every human”. There are spiritual and educational aspects of the labour movement, oft neglected and unknown. Labour Day celebrations today are lost in the midst of summer’s ending. Let us honour Labour Day and all those who have ‘served’ us in the past year. Let us honour their labours and our labours, too. We are all in service, we are all labouring. We are all valuable. Micheal Razberry, Nanaimo

Campbell government made the timehonoured mistake of all arrogant politicos: “L’etat c’est moi” (The state is me). Today it is said a little differently. “What’s good for me and my friends is good for the state.” I’m guessing they thought once the HST was in place it would all blow over, time would heal all wounds, only a few curmudgeons would complain and in the end, all would be good. Unfortunately for them, the need for public discussion trumped their cliquish view of government. That is the reason why we are now facing the current situation. It is not the “self-centred and unrealistic” great unwashed who voted ‘yes’ in the referendum who caused this mess. It is those who schemed to avoid the democratic process for their own ends. They are the villains in this piece. And current Premier Christy Clark knows it. There is no election on the horizon. The B.C. Liberal Party is hoping by the time of the next mandated election all this will be ancient history and they will have a better chance of getting re-elected. Well, it could happen, but I, for one, hope not. Michael Utgaard Nanoose Bay

Superheroes celebrate students’ volunteer work Parks, recreation and culture Leaders In Training/Quest participants held a superhero-themed wrap-up party recognizing all the hard work put in over the summer. The theme was fitting as the group of just over 100 youth provided more than 12,000 volunteer hours over the course of the past three months. The top three volunteers this summer were: Quest member Joshua Grossgardt with more than 300 hours, and LIT members Ashlee Hayes who logged 250 hours and Taylor Johnstone with 221 hours. The youth leadership programs include a series of training sessions on topics such as public speaking, team building, childminding and interview skills. Participants can focus on specific program areas such as aquatics and arenas, or general recreation. For many it’s a great stepping stone to full

time summer job placements with the department and future work experience. There is focus on building confidence, professionalism and of course making new friends. Program participants volunteer their time with department summer camps and programs and various community events. “We had such a great group this year. They were full of enthusiasm and taught us as much as we taught them. They truly are our superheroes,” said Pene Kellett, LIT and Quest program coordinator. The Leaders in Training and Quest programs have been offered by the department for 29 years and they continues with a fall session beginning in late September. Any youth interested in learning more about the programs can call Cheryl Krytor at 250-756-5200 or visit www.nanaimo.ca

World’s largest can of salmon opened for anniversary party St. Jean’s Cannery and Smokehouse is embracing the old adage ‘go big, or go home’. In celebrating 50 years in business, the Nanaimo cannery has built what it believes to be the world’s largest can of salmon. Started by Armand St. Jean as a

backyard canning operation in 1961, St. Jean’s has grown to offer canned tuna, oysters and chowder as well as producing gourmet products. “The key to our company’s success over the years has been to diversify,” said Gerard St. Jean, company president and general manager. “We’ve

expanded our customer base to include sport fishermen from all over the world, commercial canning and smoking and co-packing for many types of non-seafood items such as jellies, antipasto and mushrooms.” Anniversary celebrations take

place Sept. 15 between noon and 5 p.m. at the company’s Southside Drive office in Chase River. The event includes sampling of products, chef and trade demonstrations, live music and the opening of the world’s largest can of salmon. Please go to www.stjeans.com.

Historian Tom Paterson explains Nanaimo’s coal mining history during a Black Track Tour. The final tour begins Sunday (Sept. 11) at 10 a.m. at Morden Colliery Historic Provincial Park.

Tour highlights coal history Residents wanting to learn more about Nanaimo’s coal mining history have one more chance to hear about it from an expert this summer. Author and historian Tom Paterson leads his final Black Track Tour of 2011 on Sunday (Sept. 11). The tour of Nanaimo area mine sites begins at Morden Colliery Historic Provincial Park (the eastern end of Morden Road) at 10 a.m. and typically lasts

four hours. A reasonable level of fitness is required for the tour. For more information on transportation, what to wear and bring, please go to www.mordenmine.com. Paterson was one of the leading activists in the successful quest to save the Kinsol Trestle and is a proponent of the need to remediate the remaining structures of Morden Colliery. The innovative design of its headframe and tipple

and early use of reinforced concrete are unique on Vancouver Island. Morden Colliery is one of two still standing structures in North America. Tickets for the tour are $30 per person or $25 each for two or more in a party. All tour proceeds go to the fund to promote remediation of Morden Colliery’s unique structures. For tickets, please e-mail cchristo@shaw.ca or call 250-714-0377.

Brett Standerwick is taking his annual ALS Golf-A-Thon to new heights this year. Instead of a marathon session around the golf course, the Fairwinds Golf Club professional is combining golf with hiking to the top of Golden Hinde, Vancouver Island’s highest mountain peak. Standerwick and his fourman team begin the five-day expedition Sept. 16, with him teeing off at the Western mine Trail head in Strathcona Park. It’s then a matter of tracking the ball down and hitting again, all the way to the 2,200-metre summit. People can donate online to support Standerwick in his goal of raising more than $4,000 for ALS at www.golfathonforals.com, or contact him at Fairwinds by e-mail (bstanderwick@fairwinds. ca) or by calling 250-468-7666, ext. 227. The North Central Island Chapter of the ALS Society of B.C. will host a welcome back celebration Sept. 20 at 5 p.m. at Fairwinds. Please RSVP support@alsbc.ca.

Alison Wearing performs Giving Into Light. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts Rosie Bitts (Vancouver Island) www.missrosiebitts.com Mature audience (language, nudity) The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts is an entertaining exploration of burlesque, which forces the audience to look at their attitudes about erotica, freedom of expression, feminism and their own body image. Using burlesque, theatre and music, Rosie explores the sexual politics of female nudity. The show combines neo-burlesque, torch songs and classic burlesque in an entertaining examination of the fight against misunderstanding and censorship still felt by the burlesque stars of today. $10; $8/volunteers From Whence He Came Rice and Beans Theatre (Vancouver) www.riceandbeanstheatre.com 14+ audience A bittersweet story filled

Audience support needed to make festival successful BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

Giving into Light Alison Wearing (Mexico) www.alisonwearing.com General audience Giving Into Lightt is a hilarious, yet deeply moving journey from the eyecrossing exhaustion of early motherhood into the myth and magic of Mexico. It tells the story of a desperate and distraught new mother attempting to survive sleep-deprivation, fluorescent-lit church basement playgroups and prescriptions for depression in the midst of ice-caked Ontario. Her search for happiness leads her on an intuitioninspired journey to a village in central Mexico – a onemonth trip that becomes a five-year stay. As she raises her child amid the colours and textures of Mexico, its bustling marketplaces and interminable celebrations, she finds ‘post-partum illumination’: sweet surrender into the lyricism, the lunacy and the lightness of life. $10; $8/volunteers

Jeremy Banks knows fringe festivals. For the past two years, the former Vancouver Island University theatre student toured the theatre festival circuit across Canada – first as a volunteer, the second as a performer. With a strong theatre community and a city brimming with talent, he decided Nanaimo needed to be part of that culture. “I want to see the theatre community and performing arts community in Nanaimo grow,” he said. “Nanaimo’s got talent and it’s time to showcase that.” Banks organized the Fringetastic Theatre Festival, featuring small, often one-act plays, produced on a shoe-string budget, at three downtown venues Sept. 8-11. “Fringes are the grassroots of theatre,” Banks said. “It allows anyone to put a production together and put it on stage.” The last fringe FRINGETASTIC festival in THEATRE FESTIVAL Nanaimo ran is only four nights long for two years in and will be over when the late 1990s. the News Bulletin Victoria’s fringe next publishes. We’re encouraging our festival, which readers to add their wrapped up Sunown reviews in the day, is the third comments section oldest in Canada on our website and celebrated its beneath each show. 25th anniversary. Please visit www. Fringe festivals nanaimobulletin. are unjuried and com and click on drawn by lottery, ‘Entertainment.’ which means – Melissa Fryer, organizers have arts editor not seen the shows or performances beforehand. It’s a bit of a gamble sometimes that doesn’t always pay off, but more often audiences see thought-provoking and moving pieces in small venues for low ticket prices. Fringetastic features eight shows in total, ranging in price from $8-10, in addition to a fringe festival membership, which is by donation. Multi-passes are also available. Volunteers receive discounts to shows and are instrumental to the success of the festival. To get involved, e-mail co-ordinator Chelsee Damen at chelsee@fringetastic.com. The shows are divided between Nanaimo Centre Stage, Vancouver Island Conference Centre and Diners Rendezvous. The Rendezvous is also the unofficial after-party location, with volunteers, artists and fans gathering at 10 p.m. each night of the festival. “In a very fringe festival way, it will be very spontaneous,” Banks said. Planning is already underway for next year, which Banks hopes will spread to two weekends. To help that become reality, people need to attend this year’s festival. “Just by showing up you help support what’s going on,” Banks said. Please visit www.fringetastic.com.

◆ VIU MARINERS men’s and women’s soccer teams play their first B.C. Colleges’ Athletic Association regularseason games on the road against the Capilano Blues this Saturday (Sept. 10).

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Vancouver Island University Mariners were very good last year; in fact, they were the best. They know they’re going to be very good again this year and they’ll strive to remain the best. The university’s men’s soccer team, defending champions of the Canadian Colleges’ Athletic Association, is hard at work this fall in advance of a new season. A lot of the key players are back, and this time they’re armed with the knowledge of what it takes to be national champions. “We try to treat it as a whole new year – we have some new players,” said Bill Merriman. “But we do talk to them about what helped us get to where we got.” The coach said the leaders from last season – Chris Arnett, Jared Stephens and Matt Mehrassa – are again taking charge in 2011, with many other returning veterans on board. “The core is very strong,” Merriman said. “With the guys from last year, it’s made it that much easier to build around that group.” Notable subtractions this year are Chris Merriman, Kyle Bate and goalkeeper Robbie Cochrane, the MVP of nationals. Local Nanaimo product Scott Brown and last year’s backup,

◆ FIRST HOME GAMES are against the Douglas Royals on Sept. 17. The women play at 1 p.m. at Mariner Field, followed by the men at 3 p.m. ◆ KWANTLEN EAGLES visit Mariner Field Sept. 18 for games at noon and 2 p.m.

Vancouver Island University Mariners Kevan Brown, front, and Brant Losch vie for the ball during practice Wednesday at Mariner Field.

Daniel Mercer, comprise the new goalkeeping tandem. “[They] are doing a good job,” said the coach. “It’s obviously very hard to fill Robbie’s shoes and there’s a lot of pressure on those two guys because Robbie

was the best keeper in Canada.” As far as newcomers go, the Mariners’ most high-profile recruit this year is Kevan Brown out of the Victoria Highlanders U20 program. A.J. Kambere and

Andres Algarin are some other additions. Assistant coach James Merriman said he likes how quickly the new players are adjusting. “Our team is starting to get closer and kind of believe in each other and work hard for each other,” he said. The Mariners are glad to see that, since they know that was one of the reasons they accomplished what they did in 2010. “The team camaraderie and how tight of a team we are, that was one of our keys last year,” said Bill Merriman. “If you get the new guys to understand that, that workrate and how we cover for each other and work for each other, it’s huge.” SOCCER TALK … The M’s lost their final pre-season game to Simon Fraser University on Thursday by a 2-0 score in Burnaby. Brad Crewe and Stephens created scoring chances for the VIU team. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Competitive juices critical for Clippers BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Clippers are going to get the message right away. The B.C. Hockey League team’s training camp started Monday at Frank Crane Arena, and coach Mike Vandekamp wants to see a “rip-your-head-off ” attitude on the ice. Players have to bring it. “Can you teach it? Absolutely not,” Vandekamp said. “I would hope that we’ve got competitive people that are going to realize what we’re asking for from the beginning and show it … How you intend on playing when the puck drops on the regular season is how you need to play right from the beginning.” The team expects to have 42 players step on the ice today (Sept. 6). The Clippers provided a list of 39 prospective players on Friday (see page 30) 0 and planned to finalize three more names over the weekend. Vandekamp, also the team’s GM, said he is considering other prospects including players who are at Western Hockey League camps. “There are more things going on behind the scenes than what you see there…” he said. “So I would suggest that every single player on that list is competing for a spot on our hockey team. There’s not a single roster spot fixed in stone.” ◆ See ‘COACH’ /30

Coach sees more unknowns than in typical training camp ◆ From /28 The coach and GM Vandekamp said he likes the group of players he has to work with, but pointed out that there are unknowns. In a typical training camp, he said, a coach would be familiar with – and perhaps loyal to – certain returning veterans. With a new team, there isn’t that familiarity. Defenceman Josh Phillips is the only player in camp who Vandekamp has coached. So the coach has structured camp a little differently. Some years, he said, he might only have 25 players in camp with a chance to make the team, compared to 40-plus this month. The Clippers will hold practices and scrimmages today (Sept. 6), Wednesday and Thursday and a more formal intrasquad game on Friday before they make a single cut. The remaining guys will then get pre-season games against B.C. Hockey League competition. “The whole process, from [Sept. 5-18], there’s going to be, definitely, a lot to evaluate,” said Vandekamp. ICE CHIPS … Practice times at Frank Crane Arena today, Wednesday and Thursday are at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., with scrimmages at 6 p.m. … A previously unreported trade this summer saw Yannick LaFlamme dealt to

Whitecaps will teach players of all skill levels Nanaimo soccer players are excited about the start of another season and the Vancouver Whitecaps FC are excited to be a part of it. Whitecaps summer camp returns to Nanaimo’s Beban Park Gyro Youth Sports Fields this weekend (Sept. 10-11). Boys and girls in the U9-U14 brackets

can participate, and will be split into two groups: development and performance. The lower level will stress the fundamentals of the game like passing, shooting and ball control, said camp manager Sam Lenarduzzi. “If you don’t learn the basic skills, you’re not going to get to that next level,” he said. “The performance

level is more for the select players. It’s more for those kids that theoretically should have the art of all the skills down pat and then we just put them into situations where they need to use those.” Cost is $129.

comes more specialized and more and more channels are offered, those statistics figure to increase. That could be especially harmful to children, many of whom spend far more time parked in front of the TV than they do sitting in a classroom, conversing with their parents, or even exercising. As Rutgers University psychologist Robert Kubey notes, millions of North Americans are so dependent on television that they fit the criteria for substance abuse. Among the dependency symptoms heavy television viewers can exhibit include: * feeling angry with oneself for watching too much television * feeling miserable when kept from watching * feeling loss of control while watching television * using television as a sedative Understandably, many parents are concerned about television and how much of it their children are watching. With

the aforementioned side effects a genuine possibility if kids watch too much television, finding new and healthier ways to keep kids entertained is of paramount importance to parents. * Encourage artistic pursuits. Oftentimes, the television tends to be used as a babysitter. After a long day at the office, parents are quick to turn on the T.V. for the kids while they unwind and prepare dinner or take care of other daily chores. However, this can prove an unhealthy crutch. Instead of turning on the television, use this time to encourage kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; artistic interests, such as painting, reading or playing a musical instrument. After a structured day at school and/or an afterschool program, kids will grow to embrace this time to simply unwind doing something they love without being told how to do it. * Exercise with your kids. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s common for parents to see their once regular exercise routines fall

by the wayside once their children are born. This not only isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t healthy for parents, but it sets a poor example for their children as well. Rather than flipping on the tube for some relaxation time, take a nightly walk with the kids or involve children in another physical activity that both parents and children can enjoy. * Involve kids in your hobbies. Parents often lament that they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend enough quality time with their children. To increase those opportunities and lessen your kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; television time, choose hobbies both you and your children can enjoy. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biking, hiking, fishing, or more geared toward arts and crafts, choose a hobby that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involve plopping down on the couch and watching television. If you find a fun way to fill the time that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involve watching the tube, kids are less likely to depend on TV as their primary source of entertainment, both now and in the future.

HighSchool experience for Canadian students

Stay physically fit In these tough economic times when every penny counts, costly gym memberships are a common casualty. But that doesn’t mean you should neglect your health. “More than ever, it’s important to make exercise part of your daily routine,” says Don Brown, fitness expert. “You can maintain health, lead an energetic lifestyle and reduce stress by getting regular exercise.” The longtime fitness guru notes that physical health should not be sacrificed to cost-cutting measures. Rather, Brown offers the following tips for those look-

ing to stay, or get, physically fit during tough economic time. * Get outdoors: Walking and jogging are great cardiovascular activities especially for those new to regular exercise and they are free. What’s more, getting outside encourages healthy circulation, strengthens the body’s immune system by increasing white blood cell count and helps improve mood. On days when the weather isn’t cooperative, take your cardio workout indoors. Jumping rope, dancing and running on a treadmill are great traditional indoor exercises.

* Maintain a healthy diet: Brown emphasized the importance of a health diet for everyone, from ardent fitness buffs to those with a more casual approach to exercise. Those who like to dine out or frequently order in can save substantial amounts of money in the current economy simply by eating healthier and often far less expensive foods at home and by eating less. In conjunction with daily exercise, a balanced diet that includes multiple servings of fruits and vegetables is a great way to achieve or maintain optimal health, whether or not you ever enter a gym again.
