the ones in Oak Bay makes them prime photo subjects. “They’re just so beautiful with their white heads.” According to mainlandbased wildlife biologist David Hancock, bald eagles generally mate for life and their tendency to return to the same nest, year after year, creates a bond between the birds and those who watch them. “In a sense, what we’ve developed is kind of a guardian of wildlife,” he said. “Some of them know every movement of every bird.” Hancock’s eponymous Wildlife Foundation is involved in a number of conservation initiatives, but it’s perhaps best known for installing web cams in several eagle nests on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

BOORMAN’S

An Oak Bay police officer’s allegations that he was passed over for a promotion, unjustly criticized and left off a special assignment because of his race have been accepted by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. Const. Davinder Dalep’s three allegations of racial discrimination – part of a list of complaints included in his submission to the tribunal last September – have not been proven. The 14-year member of the department names Deputy Chief Kent Thom as playing a leading role in those incidents. Dalep, who is Indo-Canadian, is the only visible minority in the 25-member organization. The Oak Bay police board has until the first week of August to file a response to the claims. On June 13, a tribunal member accepted three points from Dalep’s evidence as admissible in a hearing. The hearing has not been scheduled and may not take place, if the officer and the board agree instead to go to mediation. Several other allegations submitted by Dalep, were filed late and not accepted, said the tribunal’s registrar and advisor, Vikki Bell. “When (the complaint) was screened, it looked like not all of it amounted to allegations that happened within the last six months,” Bell said of Dalep’s submission. Complaints can only be filed on events alleged to have happened within that time frame or are deemed continuing contraventions of the B.C. Human Rights Code by a tribunal member.

Deer overpopulation inter-municipal issue Communication, co-operation key to solving problem Kyle Slavin News staff

Maintaining the status quo of doing little to control the region’s deer population will result in a greater financial burden for governments and continued risk of injuries or fatalities from car-deer collisions.

So says a Capital Regional District report released last week. Saanich Coun. Vic Derman, vicechair of the CRD’s planning, transportation and protective services committee, complained it took eight months to write a report stating an already well-known fact. “It just says there should be essentially an inter-municipal committee formed,” he said. “We need to get together with stakeholders, need to create a plan for action and need to look for ways to fund that.”

Derman brought forward a motion to Saanich council last October to create a municipal deer task force, but Oak Bay Mayor Christopher Causton beat him to the punch at the CRD level. Derman and Causton sat in on a Ministry of Environment presentation about deer at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference in September. Ministry staff admitted that deer populations should be controlled by the province, but no money is available to do it. The CRD can expect to foot the

$125,000 bill to get the ball rolling if the issue is enough of a priority to be budgeted into next year’s regional financial plan. “I’ve read the report … this doesn’t need to be studied,” Causton said. “I hate to make the pun, but it seems that everybody is just passing the buck, literally. No one seems to be taking responsibility for this. To me, it’s clearly a provincial responsibility.” Solving the deer problem, the report stated, will likely require a number of actions, including mod-

ifying deer and human behaviours, amending government regulations and reducing the herd size. The integrated plan will require participation from local and provincial governments, as well as the general public. It is expected an inter-municipal committee will be established and a significant public consultation process will need to be held. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Neighbours rally to search for cat with a personality

COMMUNITY NEWS IN BRIEF

Canada Day chess interactive

Actions of residents show that animals can connect community Don Descoteau News staff

Like his namesake, he craves relationships with people. In his younger years he was a champion ratter who used his speed and wiles to capture unsuspecting rodents in a tangled mess of underbrush near his home. A talkative sort, he is quick to start up a conversation and is pleased when someone responds in kind. Of late, however, Buber the cat – named for 20thcentury Austrian philosopher Martin Buber – has been ill. He becomes disoriented and, due to periodic seizures likely caused by a brain tumour, blind for short periods of time. Nevertheless, this 11-yearold Bengal tabby cross has struck a chord with residents of the Oak Bay neighbourhood where he lives on Clive Drive with Margaret and Michael Asch. He strolled quietly away from their home on a sunny May

29 and has since been the subject of an intense hunt that has involved, directly or indirectly, no less than two dozen people. “He reaches for community,” Margaret Asch says. “He touches people and they don’t forget him. They don’t know how they’re connected, but it’s through this cat.” Given Buber’s condition, the Asches felt they had done all they could to try and recover him by midJune. They began taking down their missing posters, which overlapped the time that Hampshire Road resident Stephanie Steele was putting up posters saying she had found a cat. The Steeles already have a cat – a protective one at that – so they chose not to bring in the stray who had been hanging around for a week. “Usually we chase (other cats) away, but there was something about him,” Steele says. “His sweetness and his vulnerability. He had this

Margaret and Michael Asch hold posters advertising their lost cat, Buber, and the fact he was found. In the mix-up and concern over his being lost and found then lost again, the 11-year-old feline has drawn together a neighbourhood. lost sort of look about him.” The visitor, whose mournful meows and sweet nature were tough to resist, she says, was on her porch the night of June 19. But by the time the Asches connected with the Steeles at around dinner time the next day, Buber was gone and has yet to return. In the week following, Asch has received more than two dozen calls or emails from people saying they had seen the found poster with his picture on it – only a couple callers said they had actually seen him.

“Strangers are so concerned about this cat and are so engaged and so helpful,” she says. “I’ve had people run after me after putting a ‘still missing’ poster up saying they’d seen him or seen one of (Steele’s posters). I have to let them down easy and tell them he’s not there anymore.” Seemingly spurred on by a sense of community and recognition of the role an animal can play in a family, some people have walked the neighbourhood trying to spot Buber, Margaret says. At some points she fears

the worst, that he has had another seizure and fallen into nearby Bowker Creek, or been attacked and killed by rats or even eagles. If they get him back, he will have to remain an indoor cat, she says. If not, they’ll at least know he has touched people’s lives the way he always has – and brought a community together. Anyone who has seen Buber is asked to call Margaret Asch at 250-592-8112 or email margaret@mayan world.net. editor@oakbaynews.com

People looking to crown themselves king or queen for a day are invited to a unique event on Canada Day this Friday (July 1) – with no throne provided. Greater Victoria’s superstar chess champion, Jason Cao, will try to out-manoeuvre an opponent in a game of live chess in Market Square. Live chessboard pieces are needed for the event, which is scheduled for 11 a.m. to noon. Kings, queens and other prospective chess pieces should have an understanding of chess rules and be able to stand for up to 45 minutes at a time. “The ideal king or queen would be someone with royal blood, or someone who thinks they have some royal blood. Some theatre experience could help out as well,” said Brian Raymer, co-ordinator of Victoria Junior Chess. To sign up as a chess piece, go to 2011livechessvictoria. eventbrite.com. ecardone@vicnews.com

POV executive director Patrick Corrigan characterized the Heffelfingers – Jane is one of only two honorary lifetime members of the organization – as being like “parents” to the company staffers. “Jane has, throughout the company history, been the most tireless advocate and fundraiser and champion of Pacific Opera,” he said.

Jane Heffelfinger While she had begun to slow down her active pace in recent months, Corrigan said, she attended shows right up until this spring. Heffelfinger leaves behind a great legacy, he added. “Our organization today is deeply influenced by the culture she spearheaded. Thanks to her we have a very vibrant, forwardthinking organization.” Heffelfinger was given Leadership Vic-

Pearson College of the Pacific. In 2000-01, she and Oak Bay Mayor Christopher Causton lobbied for an arts centre to be built on the Inner Harbour. That project did not happen, but their efforts led to a refurbishing of the Royal Theatre, Causton said. A private service will be held this week. The family is also planning a public celebration in July. The details have not yet been finalized. editor@oakbaynews.com

Sunglasses, clip-ons and tinted lenses are used to block out the glare of bright sunlight. They can also filter out ultra-violet (UV) rays. These rays are invisible to the eye, yet potentially harmful. Ultra-violet is thought to be absorbed mostly at the corneal level. This is the cause of “snow blindness,” an extremely painful condition. Recent evidence indicates that some UV may play a role in cataract formation and may also be one of the causes of macular degeneration. Misconceptions exist regarding sunglass selection and protection. It is true that you can’t tell how much UV a pair of sunglasses is blocking by the color or the density of tint. This doesn’t mean that UV light is difficult or expensive to block. An inexpensive pair of sunglasses that claims to block 100% of UV almost certainly does. The advantage of the more expensive brands lies in the quality of their optics and the visual comfort they afford the wearer. To get the best advice about sunglasses talk to an optometrist.

Oak Bay women fight for girls’ education African school helped financially by local fundraisers Ryan Flaherty News staff

For many people in this part of the world, the prospect of being denied access to education is difficult to fathom. But in Malawi it’s a harsh reality, especially for girls. However, a school in the East African nation is giving hope to a number of girls who would otherwise face a bleak path, thanks in part to a group of generous Oak Bay women. “Without APU, I would be a married lady already with no more learning in my future (and) all I would be doing is cooking, cleaning, farming and the like,” writes student Bridget Guzani on the school’s website. “APU is my saviour.” APU stands for Atsikana Pa Ulendo, or “Girls on the Move.” The school provides housing and a comprehensive education for girls from rural Malawi who would otherwise be unable to continue their education due to poverty. “This school has kept them from getting married when they’re

With the school firmly established, the college has become the

top fundraising priority. Davison emphasizes her group is working on a very short timeline. “The urgency is quite real, because the girls graduate this spring and if they have nowhere to go, they’ll have to go back to their own village and they’ll be forced into unwanted marriages.”

The first phase of construction, which includes one hostel and one classroom block, has an estimated cost of $140,000. At an afternoon cocktail party earlier this month, the Oak Bay group managed to raise $20,000 toward the project. Although the next major fund-

OUR VIEW

Finger-pointing on deer pointless Deer overpopulation is a problem that has been brewing for decades in the Capital Region. For most of those years, we have, as predominantly urban-dwelling individuals and families, thrilled at opportunities to see nature up close and personal. In recent years, however, that wonder has turned to anger, as deer find their way into gardens and gnaw away at flowers and other vegetation delicacies lovingly and painstakingly cultivated by homeowners. Outraged residents argue to local politicians, animal control staffers and the provincial Ministry of Environment that something has to be done. But the ministry claims it has no money to take action on the problem. So whose problem is it, anyway? Is it the fault of the underfunded MoE, which is charged with managing wildlife in urban, rural and remote areas? Or the Capital Regional District animal control specialists, whose main function to this point has been managing the dog and cat populations? We must come to grips with the fact there are unintended consequences of keeping natural predators of deer – mainly cougars – away from urban environs. People are safer, of course, but deer have been left to breed largely unchecked for years. The province clearly has no appetite to organize a cull or relocate deer families living here or any other urban area in B.C. Essentially it falls upon residents to take action, but not by arming themselves with various forms of weaponry. As representatives of the region, the CRD board needs to listen closely to the electorate to see if it’s an important enough issue to spend money on. If so, a committee could consult with say, a conservation officer to come up with a localized business plan for the professional and humane reduction of deer population. The plan would then be presented to the Ministry of Environment for approval. Sure, there will be outrage from animal lovers. But remember, if society is going to tolerate unnatural wildlife imbalances in urban areas, residents may have to stomach a cull. What do you think?

Plenty of contaminants lurking on beaches Re: Willows no-dog bylaw reasons clear to resident (Letters, June 15) I have serious doubts that it was dog feces that caused the serious illness of the writer’s children and husband on Willows Beach, as there are many more likely candidates. What she described sounded more like food poisoning (salmonella), which comes from bacteria build-up in improperly cooked food or food left out in the sun. Another source could be ducks, geese or seagulls, as their droppings are everywhere, and wild fowl are known to be carriers of certain deadly viruses which could also cause these severe symptoms. Remember the bird flu scare? Plus, drunk people have been known to urinate and defecate on the beach. Some boaters illegally dump the contents of their caustic chemical toilets over the side, instead of disposing of them properly. The contaminants wash up on the sand and can cause burns to the feet and poisoning. No beach in the world is totally uncontaminated. We just have to use a bit of common sense to protect ourselves. Willows Beach is a wonderful place to spend a day and our fourlegged friends should be able to enjoy it too. Rosemary Schneider Oak Bay

Minister’s representation of tax facts not reality Re: HST Op/Ed (News, June 17) Thanks for running parallel op-ed pieces by Ida Chong and Carole James. What struck me as inaccurate is Ms. Chong’s statement: “We introduced the HST for . . .

The preservation of built heritage can bring economic benefits through tourism, renovation projects and specialist services. A community that encourages rehabilitation and maintenance of historic buildings fosters increased private investment in heritage preservation and creates a more livable community for existing and new residents. It promotes neighbourhood revitalization and stability, enhances the community’s self-image and pride, supports renovation and the benefit of B.C.’s economy. Under the PST, businesses paid sales tax on many of their input costs and passed those costs on to consumers in the form of higher prices.” I have been a manufacturer in B.C. for more than 15 years. Under the PST, all the supplies and materials I required to produce my goods were PST exempt. If I sold those goods to a customer who used them as part of a project for resale, he did not pay PST to me. If my goods were sold to the final consumer, I was then obliged to charge PST and remit it to the government. A later provision allowed certain manufacturers of taxable items to buy equipment and machinery PST free. This change made upgrading and/or expanding my business less expensive and no doubt, in some small way, stimulated growth in certain sectors of the economy. Under the HST, I must now pay tax on all of my supplies and materials, so the costs of doing business have increased. It makes replacing older or purchasing new equipment more expensive, so I’m potentially less likely to reinvest in my business. On sales of my goods that are destined for resale I must now charge HST, which makes my product more expensive to some of my customers. So, quite simply, my costs have increased and my products are more costly. I don’t see how this benefits B.C.’s economy. What is more disturbing is Ms. Chong’s inaccurate description of the PST system. Whether it’s her own misunderstanding or misrepresentation is one matter, but if it reflects the government’s understanding of its own regulations, then that’s simply inexcusable. Kerry Swartz Oak Bay

building trades and promotes the development of a sustainable community. On the other hand, replacing historic buildings with new construction can adversely affect the ambience of the community. Doing so threatens to destroy heritage streetscapes, erode greenspace, disrupt neighbourhood livability, damage the fabric of neighbouring heritage homes and alter patterns of drainage and water runoff. Much new construction lacks the

architectural considerations of mass and scale and ignores the historic context of the neighbourhood, thus presenting as an eyesore rather than improvement. I support any efforts council may undertake to maintain the heritage character of Oak Bay through its planning and building incentives. It is the mature streetscapes, wellmaintained gardens and character homes that make our community special. Jean Sparks Oak Bay

LEADERSHIP VICTORIA AND VANCITY:

Making connections for a stronger community By Jennifer Blyth Black Press

From the perspective of first a participant and now a volunteer, Danella Parks knows first-hand about the many benefits of the Leadership Victoria program. A member of the program’s 2004-05 cohort, today Parks remains involved through her role as Community Development Manager for Vancity in Victoria, and by volunteering her time and talents in various capacities, from recruitment and selection to the Victoria Leadership Awards. “It’s about having an ongoing relationship with the community and seeing how all the different pieces can work together in so many ways,” Parks says, commending Leadership Victoria on the scope of the program. “Its breadth allows it to look at all aspects of the community and offers the opportunity to reach so many people across the community, bringing them together to work toward a common goal.” Founded in 2000, Leadership Victoria is a community-based, voluntary organization committed to developing, supporting and celebrating outstanding community leaders. Over the last decade, it has become the go

Vancity’s Danella Parks (bottom row, far right) and her fellow Leadership Victoria participants from 2004 -2005. to organization for community leadership in Greater Victoria, graduating more than 230 leaders from diverse backgrounds who continue to work to improve their community, and facilitating over 40 community action projects that span a wide range of themes, issues and partnerships. Leadership Victoria leads three essential initiatives: the signature ninemonth, experiential-based learning program; the annual Victoria Leadership Awards, in partnership with the Victoria Foundation, University of Victoria, Vancity and Rotary Clubs of Victoria; and special programming providing opportunities for key people

to gather and challenge conventional wisdom on pressing social issues. Quite simply, “Leadership Victoria believes the community’s future is in our hands,” explains Ivan Watson, alumnus and Leadership Victoria’s Communications Director. “Because community leadership can be taught and learned, as a community we are accountable for developing emerging leaders and ensuring the current generation passes on its skills and wisdom to promising new leaders.” As the community faces many challenges, experienced, trained leaders are required more than ever to tackle those challenges head on.

“Our program is designed to impact in three strategic ways: to equip individuals with the essential skills and knowledge of effective leadership; to benefit the community with an active network of engaged alumni; and to enhance leadership capacity in the workplace,” explains Jack Shore, Leadership Victoria’s Executive Director. “Many employers sponsor staff to take our program and they’ve found that their employees return with increased practical skills, greater understanding of organizational challenges, stronger cross-sector networks and enhanced motivation gained as part of high performance teams.” Such is the case with Vancity. Beyond Parks’ personal involvement with Leadership Victoria, Vancity is also involved at a corporate level, sponsoring staff as participants, making presentations, providing grant support for community action projects and community learning days, and sponsoring the Vancity Youth Award at the annual Victoria Leadership Awards. In all, for participants, volunteers, mentors and corporations, the benefits are many. “I invite anyone who is interested in Leadership Victoria to approach Jack (Shore) and learn about the many opportunities available,” Parks says.

Community Action Projects, 2010-11 Team Four Peace, with community partner South Island Dispute Resolution Centre Society Goal: To recommend strategies for delivering a conflict management/resolution program for elementary schoolaged students who are newcomers and may have language or cultural barriers. Two events with community stakeholders first explored what was happening and needed, then emphasized interaction to create an action plan where participants can now share resources, skills and arrange cross-organization opportunities to strengthen services for the children. Team Salmon – Bulldog Green Initiative, with

community partner Belmont Secondary School & Climate Action West Shore Goal: To work with Belmont students to develop a sustainable, long-term recycling initiative. By surveying those affected and studying similar programs elsewhere, a communication strategy was created to help students and faculty better understand the importance of recycling.

Team Eggplant

– Youth Action for Homelessness, with community partner the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness Goal: To engage youth and raise awareness of issues surrounding homelessness in the Capital Region. The team created a youth video contest, reviewed by high-profile judges, with prizes including laptops, educational bursaries, and scholarships for a local film school.

Got a Question?

RIGHT OR WRONG? Q & A With Rosalind

Uncommon sense for marketplace decisions with Rosalind Scott, Executive Director, BBB If you have a question or experience that you would like to share with Rosalind Scott please email rosalindscott@vi.bbb.org.

Q: Dear BBB, I recently saw a brochure with the BBB’s Top Ten Scams of 2010 listed. I was shocked to see that you had listed some normal, reputable industries as being rife with frauds and scams. This seems like an unfair generalization and didn’t make sense to me. In fact, you even have some BBB Accredited Businesses operating in a few of the industries that were noted in your Top Ten list. I am confused; this seems hypocritical and doesn’t make sense to me? ~ Confused Consumer A: Confused Consumer, You are WRONG to assume that the BBB’s Top Ten Scams list is an attack on ALL businesses within specific industries. The purpose of the Top Ten Scams list is to identify for consumers and business the top 10 scams that had the greatest impact in our region. Sometimes these scams contain information about obvious frauds (i.e. Nigerian Letter Scams, Foreign Lotteries), other times they contain information about ongoing unethical business practices by SOME businesses operating within a specific industry. The purpose of these Scam Alerts is not to paint all businesses in one industry with the same tainted brush, but to identify unethical business practices occurring by some businesses. In almost every industry or business category there are businesses operating legitimately and ethically, and businesses that are not. By “identifying the bad” the BBB is better able to emphasize the importance of doing business with reliable, reputable, trustworthy businesses (such as BBB Accredited Businesses, who have been screened and agree to abide by our Standards of Trust and Code of Business Practices).

The Victoria Hospitals Foundation is warning Greater Victoria residents to be wary of a fraudulent caller. The foundation does not solicit donations by phone, but has learned someone has been calling residents asking for donations in the foundation’s name. The Victoria Hospitals Foundation is currently running a direct mail campaign for donations toward neurosurgery equipment at Victoria General Hospital. The campaign was paused during the postal strike and lockout.

The third nest, next to an Island Road house, is not quite as accessible as the other two. However, the eagles that live there have a favourite perching tree at the south end of Anderson Hill Park which is much more visible. The male is also often spotted sitting on a marker on Trial Island. For Steer, the eagles have almost become extended family members. “You get to know them so well when you’re watching them,” she said. Steer and her fellow eagle-watchers – of which there are dozens – share photos and document the birds’ movements on the Hancock Wildlife Foundation website, which has forums dedicated to many different animals.

Bringing his magic to the Belfry stage Young magician plans to wow Victoria crowd Edward Hill News staff

I pick the nine of diamonds and throw it back in Camilo Dominguez’s deck of cards. He shuffles faster than I can see. He asks if my card is the 10 of hearts and I’m struck with worry – either he’s a lousy magician or I can’t remember anything beyond four seconds. He flips the 10 card under the Bicycle playing cards box, and somehow, of course, it’s flipped into my nine of diamonds moments later. Even under the all-seeing eye of a video camera, it’s hard to spot the cool sleight-of-hand of the 21-year-old magician. The young son of Colombia has come a long way since wowing students in the halls of Belmont secondary with his preternatural talent to make the cards dance. Since graduating from high

school in 2008, he’s honed his magic show at the Havana Club in Vancouver and is launching his first professional performances in Victoria, tonight (June 29) at the Belfry Theatre. “I’ve tried to move my magic to a different level,” Dominguez says. “I use two projection screens and a camera so the audience can see the magic close up.” He was drawn to sleight-of-hand as a child and attended the Bogota School of Magic as a teenager, before moving to Canada for high school. He learned the secrets of pulling rabbits from hats and sawing people in half, but he prefers the simplicity of a pack of cards. “At Belmont I was challenging myself with the language and getting in front of people,” he says. “Now it’s more about surprising the audience with two hands and a deck of cards.” His four Belfry performances are titled “Continuum,” based on the theme of time and connections. His setup is simple and intimate: chairs for him and an audience member, a table, a deck of cards and video projectors to make sure

Edward Hill/News staff

Belmont secondary alumni Camilo Dominguez returns to Victoria for four magic shows at the Belfry Theatre this week. the crowd doesn’t miss a beat. “For Continuum, I do tricks that are a challenge in 10 seconds or 20 seconds, whatever the audience asks for,” he says. “It’s about surprising the audience and surprising myself. Each show I try to make it fresh, but a show is set by the mood of the audience.”

His parents are travelling to Victoria to see his show, the first time they’ve seen him perform outside of Colombia. That’s a big thrill, Dominguez says, and he hopes his friends from Belmont will also come out to see him on stage. Dominguez says despite the thematics, every performance is differ-

ent and evolving. New tricks come during interactions with audience members and friends, many who just throw out odd ideas. “My friends will say ‘make a card appear in a soccer ball or some different object,’” he says. “I go home and try to create it with the tools and skills I have.” He is in his final semester of theatre production school at Studio 58 at Langara College in Vancouver, part of his larger strategy to make a career as a working magician. Understanding the nuts and bolts of stage management – lighting, sound, set design – can be as critical as stage presence. It all must come together before the cards come out. “That is the most fascinating thing about magic. Anything you want, you can make it happen – with practice, of course.” Continuum shows at 8 p.m. tonight and Thursday, and 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $20, available at the Belfry box office or by calling 250-3856815. For more details, visit www. camilothemagician.com. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Stepping up at nationals Field hockey nationals spot lights Oak Bay teen Travis Paterson News staff

Oak Bay High student Maddie Secco will be taking full advantage of playing at home at the Senior National Field Hockey Tournament starting today at the University of Victoria. Secco will play for the junior national team, one of 10 women’s teams in the tournament. It’s full circle for Secco, who will play against a number of local seniors including Ali Lee, the St. Margaret’s grad who won the CIS championship with UVic in 2009. “It’s a funny story,” Secco said. “Lee coached me on the B.C. Summer Games team in 2008, and now when I train with the (senior team) we get to play together.” Their link goes back even further. Secco’s mom Debbie, a teacher and coach at St. Margaret’s, introduced Lee to field hockey. And though Secco only turns 17 this year it’s already her second nationals. She played with the 18-and-under B.C. team at last year’s tournament, also held at UVic.

The advantage of playing at home isn’t lost on Secco, who helped Canada’s U17 team win the Pan American Championship in November 2010. “When you’re on the road you can always call home, but it’s nice to have the support of friends and family on the sidelines cheering for you.” Carded and training with the senior national team since November of 2010, Secco has all but given up on other sports, though she’ll likely return to the Oak Bay Breakers soccer team next spring. “It’s pretty much all the best players in Canada so it’s really fun to measure yourself,” said Secco. “I haven’t been able to do a lot with the senior national team because of (commitments) with the junior team.” Secco isn’t the only youth field hockey prodigy coming out of Oak Bay High. The school’s recently named female-athlete-of-the-year, Kathleen Leahy, is set to play for the Vikes in September. Unfortunately, an injury will keep Leahy on the sidelines this week.

B.C. led schedule The four B.C. teams are in a 10-team women’s division made up of B.C. Blue, B.C. White, B.C. U18 White, B.C. U18 Blue, Alberta, P.E.I.,

The men’s division has two B.C. teams, Blue and White, against the junior nationals, Alberta and Ontario. All eyes are on the national team players as women’s coach Louis Mendonca is looking to select the Canada team that will play in the

Pan American Games, this October in Mexico. For Secco, the more realistic option is to crack the Canada ‘A’ development side, a mix of junior and senior players, that will host the 4-Nations Classic in Vancouver against Chile, Japan, and Trinidad & Tobago in July. sports@vicnews.com

Prize fighting returns to armoury Bay Street Armoury tradition carries on Travis Paterson News staff

Sixty-six years ago, 2,500 fight fans jammed the Bay Street Armoury to see the great Joe Louis dust his boxing opponent Bob Frazier. According to reports in Victoria’s daily paper on Dec. 11, 1945, Louis needed only one hand to defeat Frazier in a fight titled Veterans of France. Both Louis and Frazier fought in the Second World War. The armoury has a history of hosting prize fighting and on July 16 the historic courtyard will open its doors for Summer Slugfest V. “This is downtown, an exciting return to the (inner) city,” promoter and kickboxing trainer Stan Peterec said. “The past few years we’ve been on the West Shore with Western

Speedway and we’ve been in Saanich (Velox Rugby Club), but there’s nothing like having it in the heart of the city.” Peterec has held events in the armoury before, “but its been about 15 years.” Since then he’s fine-tuned the Slugfest series as Victoria’s premier annual fighting event for amateur boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts (the local Armageddon Fighting Championship is a professional, MMA platform only). And Peterec has tweaked Slugfest’s format once more by bringing back the King of the Ring tournament format among a card of regular Muay Thai and boxing fights. “There’ll be eight kickboxers with the finalists doing up to three fights. It’s not just fan friendly, the fighters love it too,” he said. That group includes Victoria’s Karl Bergen, who won his MMA match at AFC 6 on June 18. Alex Tribe, a rising Muay Thai

The Victoria Royals hockey team plays its first Western Hockey League game in Kamloops, the first of five exhibition games announced for early September. The Royals play five road games, starting with the Kamloops Blazers and Kelowna Rockets on Sept. 2 and 3. Victoria will then re-acquaint and renew its rivalry with the Vancouver Giants on Sept. 9 in Ladner and Sept. 10 in Maple Ridge. Victoria finally hosts its first WHL game since 1994 on Sept. 16 against the Kelowna Rockets at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. Training camp opens Aug. 20. The Royals’ 2011-12 regular season schedule will be announced on June 29.

Early roster for Rugby World Cup

Coach Kieran Crowley has released the early, 50-man Canadian squad for the September Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. The final cut to a 30-man squad isn’t due until July. Among the 50, several are Victoria produced players and many others have strong club and developmental ties to the South Island. Ed Fairhurst, a 2007 World Cup veteran and St. Michaels University School grad, returns to the mix at scrum half, where he is in contention with another local, Sean White, who graduated from Oak Bay High. Other Oak Bay High products hoping to make the cut are second rower Mitch Gudgeon and fly half Connor Braid, as well as their James Bay teammate DTH van der Merwe at wing.
