Updated design unveiled for Oak Bay Lodge replacement Oak Bay High Grade 12 students Liam McDonough and Emerald Pringle study their options for scholarships, guided by teacher Scott Alexander in the school’s career centre.

Council, Baptist Housing commit to thorough process Ryan Flaherty News staff

year. They range from major awards worth tens of thousands of dollars to $400 contributions from service clubs or families. For students trying to defray the mounting costs of higher education, they all add up, says Scholarship Preparation 12 teacher Scott Alexander. The high-energy instructor has done plenty of research on what’s out there. With his students in the thick of scholarship application season, he says school advisors can be a key resource for students, by helping them navigate through the multitude of online and print information. “We really become a coach,” he says. “If the kids choose to apply themselves and search out what’s available, there’s huge results that can be achieved.”

After a three-month break, round two is officially underway. Oak Bay council got its first look Monday at the revamped proposal from Baptist Housing for a new facility to replace Oak Bay Lodge. The new design addresses many of the concerns raised during the original variance application last fall. Baptist Housing CEO Howard Johnson was on hand to give an overview of the changes. He was also there to assure all concerned that this time the consultation step is being handled properly. “We think this is a much better process this time around,” Johnson told the News Tuesday. In addition to concerns raised in the fall over the height, access points, and overall impact of the original design, there were also complaints that the entire application had been rushed and that council was forced too quickly into making a decision. This time, however, an independent planning consultant is being hired to guide the municipality through the process. “This gives them a tremendous value in terms of understanding, from a technical point of view, that everything seems to be appropriate from a planning perspective,” said Johnson. He pointed out that Oak Bay doesn’t have the same size planning department as larger communities such as Victoria and Saanich. Johnson added that Baptist Housing will pay for the consultant, but that they will report to council. “They very much need to be independent of us and be able to give council unbiased advice.”

Planning for transition Scholarship application time offers good prep for post-secondary life Don Descoteau News staff

You’re in a room, thousands of kilometres from home. People you’ve only just met are throwing questions at you. You try to answer the best you can, knowing there’s $75,000 at stake. Oak Bay High Grade 12 student Emerald Pringle was one of 76 scholarship applicants in that scenario last week in Toronto. They were in the final stages of adjudication for the 2012 Loran Award. Only 30 would be chosen, out of a pool of 3,900 initial applicants nationwide. Pringle found out Sunday night after arriving home, that she wasn’t selected. She did, however, earn $3,000 as a finalist and took one more step toward a major transition in her young life. “The weekend was an amazing opportunity … I learned so much about myself

and met so many amazing people,” she says. The process began for her back in October. “I had to do four essays of 300 words each. The name of the game is getting them to want to talk to you so you can express yourself in person.” The Loran Award rewards young people not only for high academic achievement – Pringle is averaging 95 per cent this year – but active community involvement and leadership. It is the crème de la crème of scholarships in this country and as such, requires the most work to apply for, especially if one advances through the regional and provincial stages. But the Loran is only one of countless monetary awards available to students moving on to post-secondary education. At Oak Bay High alone, roughly 100 students were offered more than $1 million in scholarships and bursaries last

Population growth minimal in O.B. Region’s growth trails B.C., national averages Oak Bay’s population grew by barely 100 residents between 2006 and 2011. Those numbers, along with a regionhigh jump of 30 per cent in Langford, were listed in the latest Statistics Canada census data, released Wednesday. Single-digit increases in Victoria and Saanich were major factors in the Capital Region’s overall growth of 4.4 per cent to 344,615. The region’s growth rate trailed both B.C. and Canada’s rates. The country grew by 5.9 per cent in the five-year period since the previous census, while B.C. jumped seven per cent. While West Shore jurisdictions enjoyed healthy growth, Victoria led population growth in the core at 2.5 per cent. During the same time frame, Esquimalt’s popula-

tion shrunk by 3.7 per cent. The numbers fall well below growth estimates released after the 2006 census. At that time, the Capital Regional District predicted an extra 30,000 people by 2011. Only half that growth materialized. “I never thought Victoria would meet those projections,” said Larry McCann, a professor at the University of Victoria’s department of geography. “Victoria has always grown very slowly. Historically, it just inches along, inches along.” The economic downturn put a real halt to condo development, he said. “Part of that estimate was more retired people would be moving into the metropolitan area, and that just didn’t happen.” Victoria’s growth isn’t keeping up to the provincial or national average because the people it does attract are older with smaller households, he said.


March honours missing women The fourth annual Memorial March for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women takes place Sunday (Feb. 12). Participants are asked to meet at 11 a.m. outside Our Place, 919 Pandora Ave. The march begins at noon and ends at

Thunderbird Park at Douglas and Belleville streets. There will be speeches, songs, food and prayers starting at 1 p.m. The march originated on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside to call attention to the disproportionate number of indigenous women who had gone missing.

also repositions the buildings so that less of the facility faces Cadboro Bay Road and neighbouring houses on Hampshire Avenue. It’s also more centred on the site to allow for preservation of all but three Garry oaks. Other changes include reducing the site’s access points from two to one by eliminating a proposed Cranmore Road entrance/exit, increasing the number of parking spaces by two to 109 (one for every three beds) and

I’ve always said that if the process is good, I will not object.” Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen said he expects things “will be a lot smoother” the second time around. “One of the things that we learned last time is that creating an artificial deadline for this important process is not a very good idea,” he said. “We’ll certainly move the process along expeditiously, but not so fast that people won’t have a chance to participate.” Council expects to confirm the consultant at its Feb. 13 meeting, and will determine a timeline for the consultation process in the coming weeks.

Businesses must be kept in loop A lot of thought went into how the longterm closure of Craigflower Bridge would affect everything from schoolkids to salmon. However, planners were much less mindful in their treatment of a segment especially sensitive to upheaval these days. Small business owners who count on access to their shops for customers seem to have been left out of most discussions around replacing the bridge. Traffic, it is said, flows like water through a city’s streets. Motorists will find the quickest way to get where they need to go. When one route closes, formerly less-popular roads will attract a trickle of traffic before becoming a new tributary until the blockage is removed. Even then, vehicles will stick to the paths they know unless another route proves itself to be more efficient. Planners take this into consideration when contemplating changes to traffic patterns. Whether the disruption is caused by road maintenance or more significant upgrades, such as a new bridge, care is taken to try and ease the pain for the public. In the case of the Craigflower Bridge, the municipalities it connects – Saanich and View Royal – are primarily looking for options to allow pedestrians and cyclists to still be able to cross that stretch of the Gorge waterway. Motorists, who arguably account for the majority of people shopping at Admirals Walk, will have to journey an extra four kilometres to get across. We hope people will think beyond their immediate circumstance and make a choice to stay loyal to those affected businesses that have earned their trust. But that’s a lot to ask. A better solution would have been for municipal planners to give the area’s economic ecosystem the same consideration as the salmon and schoolkids. More information much earlier in the process would have gone a long way to helping business owners prepare for the tough times they’re sure to face. What do you think?

in the World Cup was heavily flavoured with that same CW team. A stipulation to the rule says that carded players who are “developed” by the teams for which they are playing are exempt. UVic and UBC are also immune, because of their varsity status. It means James Bay can throw national scrum half Sean White and fly half Connor Braid into the lineup at any time. And when national sevens captain Phil Mack finishes his time at UVic, he too will be free to play for James Bay. The same goes for the Castaway-Wanderers, with Michael Fuailefau and Beau Parker. The rule does slow graduating Vikes with national team status from jumping ship to Island clubs, however. National prop Andrew Tiedeman and his Vikes front row mate Toby Peyton came to the Castaway-Wanderers from UVic this year. Tiedeman is CW’s new captain, while Peyton hasn’t played in the Premier League yet this year. One would expect Velox to get a boost sooner than later, and hopefully it means their return to the Premier League next year. But that’s still only a few players. Perhaps the answer lies in a return of the Pacific Pride under-23 program, which was also part of the Premier League. Whatever the answer, there’s got to be some way to see more of Canada’s rugby team in Victoria besides at practice, or on the Premier League sidelines. Travis Paterson is sports reporter for Black Press Greater Victoria.

Lessons of desecration should be communication Re: Religion at fault for persecution of the Jews (Letters, Jan. 20). It would be a denial of history to claim that Christian teachings played no role in the development of the homicidal anti-Semitism that claimed the lives of six million Jewish men, women and children during the Holocaust. But history need not chain us. The lessons of the Holocaust impelled Christian leaders to meditation and introspection. Documents such as Bearing

Faithful Witness and Nostra Aetate (In Our Age) – which extended the hand of friendship from the United Church of Canada and the Roman Catholic Church respectively – represent a sincere effort to achieve reconciliation. The Jewish community itself has not been inactive in this regard, and offered Dabru Emet (Speak Truth) as a consideration of the relationship between Christianity and Judaism. These documents do not represent

Readers respond: B.C. Ferries should be run as a business by business people B.C. Ferries has been a product of its own demise largely due to the fact that it is run by the provincial government. In my opinion it should be sold to a private group of investors and run like a business. Having the option of reaching into the pocket of the taxpayer is one that is too tempting and is never going to be a solution to a failing business. By having B.C. Ferries run by a private company, the market will dictate what fares should be and the salaries that should be paid. B.C. Ferries’ record speaks for itself. It has been one problem after another and it appears as though the public cannot wait for some form of failure from the company. We can all think of multiple examples of how this “business” has acted in a manner that we strongly disagree with. So, let the government govern and businessmen run business because history shows you can’t do both. Barrett Smith Saanich

Raising OAS eligibility brings too many problems As an adult educator, I am surprised that there has been little or no discussion of cognitive and physical decline of adults due to normal, healthy aging and the impact of raising the age of OAS eligibility. For example, do we really want high school teachers to teach until age 67 – especially when there are growing numbers of unemployed younger teachers? Do we want 67-year-old propane truck or bus drivers on the road when they have declining coordination and reaction times? Occupations such as mining or nursing – or a host of other occupations that involve physical strength – surely should not require employees to work two additional years before receiving OAS. Cognitive and physical decline with aging is a reality. Research has shown that the decline is gradual, but inevitable. What evidence exists that the federal government has taken such research into consideration as they increase the age of eligibility? Finally, by 2030, when the baby boom bulge has passed, the percentage of GDP expended

the last word in dialogue. Indeed they are barely the first words in a conversation that is long overdue. We ignore the sounds of hate that echoed through the sacred space of the Emanu-El Jewish Cemetery at our shared peril, but we cannot permit that ugly growl to drown out the words that we must speak to each other. Len Rudner, director Community Relations and Outreach, The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs

B.C.Ferries, OAS, oil by the existing pension schemes will decline – a demographic fact the Tories somehow ignore. I guess it gets in the way of their current promotion of an expensive, corporate private model rather than a more cost-efficient expanded CPP model. Some of us may choose to continue working full or part time, but surely one should have a choice to retire at an age when one still has one’s health and not be penalized for retiring before the Tory-imposed age of 67. No wonder the Tories did not raise the issue during the last federal election. Ron Faris Victoria

It’s time to think outside the proposed Northern Pipeline The two main reasons for the proposed Northern Pipeline are to meet the ever-increasing removal of bitumen from the tar sands and to send the stuff to Asian markets. If we get beyond our need for instant gratification, plan for the longer term and heaven forbid, reduce bitumen extraction instead, not only will we not need the pipeline, but the value of the bitumen will increase over time because of the world’s scarcity of oil. In choosing to live with less oil, we will be motivated/forced to develop and employ renewable energy. As an added benefit, environmental degradation will be slowed. And even if there’s not a consensus regarding mankind’s influence on climate change, it’s simply immoral to burn any more fossil fuel than we have to. Secondly, we should keep our oil for ourselves, which would enable us to stop the ridiculous policy of importing oil in Eastern Canada. Any leftovers should be transported in existing pipelines to markets in the U.S. Thirdly, there is so much money in oil that we should: 1. Reduce the subsidies to the oil companies and direct them instead towards the development of renewables, and 2. Tax the oil companies like they do in Norway: $550 billion and counting in Norway’s rainy day fund. Our politicians need to man up and stop kissing Big Oil butt. It’s Canadians who own this black gold and Big Oil has very few other options. Dave Secco Oak Bay

Youth rec pass sales spike A pilot project to sell youth recreation passes at a discount has proved wildly successful for Recreation Oak Bay. The special promotion, which runs until the end of March, makes annual youth passes available for $99 instead of the old rate of $250. The result has been a massive spike in sales. In the month of January alone, more passes were sold than the total for 2011. As of last week 263 passes had been sold, compared to 153 through all of last year. “It doesn’t mean there weren’t as many kids here last year, but they may have been buying single admissions or 10-packs,” said Janet Barclay, manager of recreation program services. Recreation staff will be meeting with the municipal parks and

recreation commission soon to look at lowering the annual youth rate permanently, though likely not as far as $99. Barclay envisions the promotion becoming an annual tradition around the holidays.

Mio Takahashi as Sasaki, left, and Yukiko Kobayshi as Buddy star in One Thousand Cranes.

The legend of cranes One Thousand Cranes, a beautifully crafted show from Tokyo, puts a human face to nuclear fallout. A young Japanese girl is diagnosed with leukemia after Hiroshima. Determined to live, she folds origami cranes, which are a symbol of hope. Across the Pacific in Canada, a young boy believes that there’s nothing he can do to stop an inevitable nuclear war. The show is based on the true story of Sasaki Sadako, a young girl who discovered that she had radiationinduced leukemia nine years after the bombing of Hiroshima. According to ancient Japanese legend, anyone who folds 1,000 origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Sadako died in 1955 and there is now

a statue dedicated to her at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial in Japan. The performance, by Japanese theatre company Bunkaza, weaves together these stories looking at the implications of nuclear war. The play is performed in Japanese with English surtitles and is suitable for children aged 12 and up. One Thousand Cranes is part of Intrepid Theatre’s 2012 season of international touring theatre, which includes shows from Quebec, Belgium and Japan. One Thousand Cranes is at the Metro Studio, Feb. 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18/$23/$31. For more information go to

The gym was a rockin’ on Tuedsday night as Mount Douglas hosted a loud, proud and inyour-face contest between the Rams and Oak Bay Bays senior boys basketball teams. A late run by Mount Doug wasn’t enough, despite a series of baskets by their unstoppable guard, Elliot Rowe, as Oak Bay prevailed 73-69. Rowe ended the match with 20 points, tying the Bays’ Liam Horne for the game high in scoring.

wsky, and we like that.” McLaren was once in the pipeline for a junior-A career but fell out of favour due to philosophical differences with his junior-A team, Welch said. Leung and McLaren are different players who will both have a chance to step into the transition role this summer as rookie stud Andrew Suitor has committed to playing in his native Ontario after one year in Victoria. “We think (McLaren’s) one of the top defensive transition guys in the draft, a guy that can bring some of the things we lose with Suitor. He’s not a pugilistic player but he’s a battler and feisty player.” The Shamrocks picked up a pair of Claremont graduates in the fourth round who went elsewhere for junior-A, Asahel Beaudet from Nanaimo and Steve Higgs from the Delta Islanders. Late in the draft, Victoria products Jake Ryan and Liam Kelly were taken. The Rocks’ last pick was Jr. Shamrocks defender of the year in 2011, Austin Powell, who hails from San Diego and plays NCAA lacrosse with Leung for Bellarmine University in Kentucky. Nanaimo selected Victoria’s Tyler Matheson in the second round. The Jr. Shamrocks grad gets a chance to reunite with Bremner. The two were once junior-A hockey teammates with the Victoria Grizzlies.

Bridge debate spurs decorum breakdown Victoria councillor scolded, newcomers finally brought up to speed on bridge plans Roszan Holmen News staff

The City of Victoria’s official map of the future Johnson Street Bridge is giving residents a false impression of the replacement project, according to some new members of council. “Residents are being completely misled right now,” said Coun. Shellie Gudgeon at last Thursday’s meeting of the governance and priorities committee. At issue is a map indicating green space south of the downtown entrance to the bridge,

published on www.johnsonstreet The map gives no indication of a development being considered by council on this land. Pending approval of a rezoning application, council has committed the land to Reliance Properties. Coun. Ben Isitt agreed with Gudgeon’s take. Citing an in-camera discussion Jan. 19, he said, “I would suggest this map is inaccurate.” But Mayor Dean Fortin defended the map. “This is currently what is being proposed,” he said. “It is truthful

until such time as we decide (otherwise).” “That’s crap,” Gudgeon replied. “Excuse me?” Fortin interjected, reminding her of the decorum expected at the council table. Decorum quickly returned, but the incident highlighted a greater, and growing concern. Nearly nine weeks since their inauguration to Victoria council, the three newly elected councillors were still in the dark about the city’s biggest, most controversial infrastructure project. “I’m getting inundated with questions and I’d like to be brought up

to speed,” said Gudgeon. Others at the table, including the mayor, echoed her call for a full briefing. The new councillors “need to understand everything we went through,” Fortin told his engineering staff. Until that happens “we are going to continually lurch.” Council voted to move the briefing up from the end of the month to Feb. 7, after press deadline. As for the map, project director Mike Lai promised, “we can certainly make a modification to indicate the pending application.”
