$10,000 security required for Vantreight appeal Ratepayers must post security to continue in court Laura Lavin News Staff

More controversy is brewing between Ian Vantreight and the Residents and Ratepayers of Central Saanich. The ratepayers launched an appeal of the ruling in its challenge to the Vantreight subdivision bylaw in May. On Aug. 11 the Court of Appeal ordered that the ratepayers post security in the “They’ve amount of $10,000 for the been dragging cost of the appeal. The this on since we court ruled that the payment must be made within originally won 45 days, Vantreight’s lawyers, however, have asked the challenge court to reduce that to back in April.” the 30 days. - Ian Vantreight “There’s an element of urgency here,” said Vantreight. “They’ve been dragging this on since we originally won the challenge back in April.” He said his housing project has been in limbo for 250 days at this point. “What they are doing, in my opinion, is trying to drag this out as long as possible. They’re trying to delay it as long and they can so it will cost as much as it can,” Vantreight said. The appeal is set to be heard in Vancouver on Oct. 19 and 20. “A move to Victoria puts it to December,” said Vantreight. “There is no time available in appeals court in Victoria until Dec. 6 or 7.” “We were told 45 days so we set a meeting up so our members could have a say,” said Ratepayers’ president Ian Cameron. That meeting is set for early September. “We’re asking for the 45 days to remain in effect and we’ve asked for the venue to be moved to Victoria. This is where the case is and this is where our members live.” Ratepayer member Lori Waters called the PLEASE SEE: Ratepayers question move, Page A5

Central Saanich asks: tennis anyone? Laura Lavin News staff

Tennis enthusiasts declared their love for Central Saanich’s new tennis park this weekend. The site of the former Oakes Farm at 1859 Hovey Road was transformed into the district’s newest athletic facility which will host hundreds of tennis players well into the future. “Centennial Park has developed over the years to meet community needs,” said Central Saanich councillor Ron Kubek, parks chair. “In the early days through volunteer work parties and fundraising — perhaps some of you here today remember raking dirt to get the rocks off newly seeded playfields, coaching youth soccer teams, baseball teams,

lacrosse teams, maybe flipped a burger and we hope these courts last us for 50 or two in one of the concessions.

Deanna Underwood remembers the good old days when neighbours pitched in to help one another. “As it turns out those days of neighbours helping neighbours are not lost in this community,” she said. Recently several Pauquachin residents, Chief Bruce Underwood, members of the council, staff, and housing committee were joined by eight Safeway employees to clean out a house that was severely damaged by fire in April. “The house is about 35 years old. It can be salvaged but they didn’t have fire insurance,” said Underwood, Pauquachin housing manager. Elmer and Margaret Henry lost most of their possessions in the accidental dryer fire that destroyed the kitchen area of their home and caused severe smoke damage. “(They) are pensioners and have reached a time in their lives when they should be enjoying retirement and not starting a loan or mortgage,” said Underwood. While the Pauquachin First Nation has submitted applications seeking funding assistance to both Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, the family has established a trust fund to help the elderly couple renovate their home. “To make it as cost effective as possible we wanted to go in and do some sweat equity while we are waiting for a response to the application on their behalf,” said Underwood. They were assisted in that by community members and Safeway employees. “The First Nations held a job fair and Safeway participated,” said Underwood. “Through conversation they learned about the two recent fires here.” Henry then contacted Charlotte Penner, Safeway Corporate Social Responsibility who organized a task force of volunteers to help with the job. “Safeway as a corporation is obviously nameless and faceless, but we work in those stores and we love our communities,” said Penner. “Safeway urges us to get out and do good in our communities and gives us the tools to volunteer.” “It was so awesome. Bless each and

with all volunteers,” said Penner. “Chief Bruce Underwood and Danny Henry welcomed us and we got right to work. “As we worked you could actually feel the breath of hope sweeping back in to this home. Elder Margaret, and each of us, was quite overcome with the kindness, laughter and genuine camaraderie that developed as we wove this memory of caring into all of our lives,” said Penner. Store managers Ross ‘Smash’ Prendergast and Roger ‘Bang’ Junker led the charge, dismantling the charred kitchen area, revealing the core structure for further assessment. “During meal break Chief Bruce Underwood and Danny Henry both spoke of the sense of unity and close relationship that Safeway employees have provided to the Pauquachin community and thanked us for joining them to assist a family in need,” said Penner. “It means so much, it’s never happened to us before,” said Underwood. “It’s new for Safeway and for us and we’re just delighted. I don’t know how to describe our appreciation for them.” To donate to the trust fund go to Coast Capital Savings in Saanichton, the fund is under the name Elmer Henry. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Sewer report finds finances in order Jump in construction cost significant factor in North Saanich sewer upgrade Emma Prestwich

project cost from $9 million in 2001 to $14.5 million in 2004, when construction costs across Canada jumped. While she said there was no way council could have predicted the cost increase, it could have been avoided if the project hadn’t been delayed for three years. She defended the then-current council’s rationale for the project, citing the requirement under the Liquid Waste Management Plan to find permanent alternatives to onsite sewage disposal. “The evidence that was presented to the council of the day was sufficient for them to make the decision that they did,” she said. But she said if the public had

Lack of public consultation, rising construction costs and a poorly developed business case were major issues in the Deep Cove, Patricia Bay and McDonald Park sewer project, according to the consulting company hired by North Saanich council to conduct a review of the project. The review report, which cost council $30,000, was presented at the Aug. 22 Committee of the Whole meeting. Project lead Bernadette O’Connor of Opus International Consultants summed up the report.

Councillor Dunstan Browne questioned the report’s conclusion that none of the $14.5 million amount was whittled away. “You found nothing wrong with the financial aspects of the whole contract?” he asked O’Connor, who said yes. Councillor Craig Mearns said he wished Opus had tracked down the then-current administrative staff and engineers, who could have revealed that they consulted extensively with the public. “This was the largest project the municipality had ever done,” Mearns said. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

CRD turns down Co-Op Region won’t take action on Central Saanich decisions Laura Lavin News Staff

The Capital Regional District (CRD) Board denied the Central Saanich Peninsula Co-op supermarket Official Community Plan (OCP) amendment. The board determined that the proposed amendment to the Regional Context Statement (RCS) within the OCP is not consistent with the CRD’s overarching planning document, the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS). The District of Central Saanich applied to amend the OCP and zoning bylaw to facilitate the development of a grocery store on West Saanich Road. The property is designated rural and is located outside the Urban Settlement Area in the OCP. The site is also located outside the

Regional Urban Containment and Servicing Policy Area (RUCSPA) under the RGS. Central Saanich council asked the CRD to review the proposed changes to their RCS as proposed changes to approved municipal context statements must be consistent with the RGS and be accepted by the CRD board. “The evaluation of the proposal highlighted significant servicing policy concerns; the proposal would unnecessarily enlarge the RUCSPA boundary in Central Saanich and is contrary to many RGS policies,” said a CRD media release. “This is a decision the board does not take lightly,” said CRD Board Chair Geoff Young. “Implications of the proposed amendment could potentially open the door to sprawl by unnecessary

expansion of the Regional Urban Containment and Servicing Policy Area.” The CRD had been asked by Saanich Councillor Vic Derman to review a number of other development proposals in Central Saanich for consistency with the RGS. These five additional proposals, including the Vantreight development, Senanus water line, McPhail subdivision, Woodwynn Farms proposed rezoning and the proposed Northwest Quadrant urban servicing were reviewed and the board agreed with staff recommendations that no further action should be taken at this time. “This is vindication,” said Central Saanich Councillor Ron Kubek. “They see that this was a politically motivated motion by Vic Derman.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

case, “a matter of public interest for citizens in the CRD and the district”. She told Central Saanich council that it would be appreciated if the parties would allow the local hearing of the appeal. “This will enable the people most affected by the action to attend the court hearing,” she said. “Conversely, it would be a hardship for a large number of people to have to travel to Vancouver and find accommodation there, simply to hear whether our local Official Community Plan bylaw is enforceable.” “Through the entire challenge in March, my busiest time of the year, I was there through the entire case,” said Vantreight. “The only other people there were (media).” Explaining their absence, Cameron said due to a last-minute change in lawyers and miscommuni-

cation, the ratepayers were unaware the case was being heard. “People were very disappointed last time. By the time we found out about it the day had come and gone, we had no chance to be there,” he said. At its September meeting the ratepayers will vote on whether or not to put up the $10,000 in security for the appeal. Cameron, who is some $30,000 in debt personally for the original case, feels certain the group will go ahead. “I’ll find it,” he said regarding the $10,000. “A couple of people said they’d chip in … I’m of the opinion that you shouldn’t invest money you can’t afford to lose. Probably a lot of gamblers would bet money that they didn’t want to lose and couldn’t afford to lose — if worse comes to worst, I’ll wear it.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

OUR VIEW

Tax policy rejection portends election Let’s face it, the HST referendum and debate wasn’t really over an unpopular tax. People didn’t vote to get rid of it because they loved the PST-GST combination, much less preferred the way it was administered. It was, like so many elections fought over the years, a vote of confidence in or lack thereof in the government and its We must all now policies. What the resulting brace for the vote to extinguish the HST aftermath HST indicates is that the Liberals’ time in power in British Columbia, unless some very drastic steps are taken to woo voters, is fast coming to a close. The HST referendum acted as a kind of dry run to the provincial election. It had very similar elements to a political campaign: dislike for the current government, fanned by the way the combined tax was introduced; an ambitious politician anxious to champion the cause of the so-called “working people” — Bill Vander Zalm; and a simple method of changing things: vote against it. The HST had pockets of support: Oak Bay-Gordon Head residents voted to keep it. But those in NDP-held constituencies overwhelmingly chose to get rid of it. Regardless whether peoples’ reasoning for voting for or against the HST was sound — the complexities of tax policy are lost on most people — it was based on trust. While many have celebrated the result, we all need to brace for the aftermath. The province, having committed to restoring previous PST exemptions and looking at $360 million less in tax revenue annually, will immediately seek ways to make up the difference — the Liberals have no appetite for operating deficits. By the time the province returns to the GSTPST combo in 2013, the B.C. government will have spent hundreds of millions backtracking and recreating tax infrastructure. Then there’s the point of repaying $1.6 billion to the feds. The ironic part of this “people’s referendum” is that we may well have put the Liberals in a similar financial mess to the one they inherited from the NDP back in 2001. What do you think?

It is very close to happening in other European countries, and today B.C. is a step closer to it. When the verdict came in on the HST referendum, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon talked about going around to consult the public on how to reinstate the provincial sales tax. He vowed that B.C. will somehow still balance its budget in two years, and seemed to leave the door open to some minor modifications of the sales tax system. Premier Christy Clark quickly shut that door. It would be “disrespectful” to do anything other than bring back the post-war PST in all its rustic beauty, with the little boutique exemptions like bicycles and Toyota Priuses that have been attached by politicians over the years. Self-employed business people can now look forward to collecting and remitting two separate taxes again. There will be a cost to this “people’s victory.” It will involve reducing public services, raising taxes or both.

LETTERS

RIGHT OR WRONG? Q & A With Rosalind

Uncommon sense for marketplace decisions with Rosalind Scott, Executive Director, BBB

Be neighbourly I totally agree with your observations in your editorial (Good time to be better neighbours, PNR Aug. 5). Let us not gloat over our great American neighbours ongoing problems and current crisis situation. We should not continue to feel overly smug about how much better our economy is compared to the present one in the United States. Let us not boast and grin too much about the misfortunes that have plagued the American people over the last two or three years and that have had ripple effects all over the world, including our country Canada, even though we have somewhat better circumstances here right now. We have strong ties and are closely linked to the United States, in many ways. They are our largest trading partner and we’ve always had a very close relationship with the American people and the U.S. government and this will no doubt continue. Many of us have friends and relatives south of our border and vice versa and we visit each others’ countries often. Let us not forget who is always one of the first to help financially, militarily, with resources and manpower, when natural disasters and upheavals etc. strike in other places in our world. But how many nations have been there to assist Americans, when their country had similar occurrences? As a Canadian, whose family came here when I was barely a teenager, I’m happy to note that this country has always been there for the United States and vice versa. My wife and I lived, went to school and worked in the U.S.A. for some eight years as Canadians and still have many friends and relatives there. Our daughter married a great American fellow, who loves and knows a lot about Canada. They live in southern California. He said to me a while back now: “Canada and Canadians are very easy to like.” This statement has always stuck in my mind. Let’s remind our American neighbours, that we’ll continue to be their friends and that we like them too. Let us not sell the United States short, they are still the world leaders and as in the past, they will forge ahead and their future and that of their North American partner, Canada, is bright. Let us live the American dream together. I have one piece of humble advice for the U.S. government at this time: It is time to stop considering yourselves the policemen of the world and concentrate on the welfare of your own country and people. Walter Sartisohn, North Saanich

If you have a question or experience that you would like to share with Rosalind Scott please email rosalindscott@vi.bbb.org.

Dear BBB, I recently received an email that appeared to come from the BBB complaints department that claimed I had a negative review against my business. The email stated that I needed to click on the link provided, update my business information and to respond to the negative review, in order to ensure my BBB business profile and rating was not negatively impacted. I am confused. I did not think that the BBB used customer reviews in assessing and evaluating businesses? Is it possible this is a phishing scam? ~Bamboozled Business

Laura Lavin/News staff

Sign of respect The Howland family of Sidney paid tribute to NDP leader Jack Layton by placing an election sign in their front yard Saturday. ‘It’s very much out of respect,’ said Ruth Howland who has worked with the NDP on several campaigns.

Time for an election Premier Clark needs to call an immediate election. She has no mandate to be premier. The previous premier resigned because his policies were so unpopular, his mandate in shreds. Premier Clark’s policies are no different, and are equally unpopular, as evidenced by the crushing rejection of the HST. Ms. Clark is premier because 7,000 Liberal party members elected her party leader. It is now time for Premier Clark to go to all the people to let them decide who should be their leader. Bert Slater, North Saanich

Bamboozled Business, You are RIGHT in believing that this is a phishing scam. The BBB does not use customer reviews to assess and evaluate the trustworthiness of a business. The content of a BBB Business Review is determined by information collected by the BBB as it pertains to BBB Accreditation, the outcome of BBB consumer complaints, advertising reviews, investigations, licensing requirements and government actions. The BBB has received calls from a number of consumers and businesses that have recently received an email that appears to come from a fake BBB address (BBBupdate@post.com) in the Atlanta, Georgia metro area. The email falsely requests verification and validation of BBB Ratings. This email is a scam and the legal department of the international Council of BBB’s is working to find out who is behind the scam. We will be taking appropriate action to protect the BBB trademark. Should you receive such an email, please disregard its message, and report it on the BBB’s Scam Portal www. bbb.org/scam/report-a-scam/. This phishing scam just goes to show that any customer, business or organization can become a victim of fraud.

Good Credit...Bad Credit Come & See Us!

Fair representation for BC Stephen Lewis is calling Jack Layton’s final public letter a manifesto for social democracy. I would like Denise Savoie and other BC NDP MPs to tell us why their party is trying to continually delay and even deny the extra 30 seats in parliament for BC, Alberta and Ontario. Before the May election when this was first proposed, Layton wrote to the Bloc Quebecois and told them that he and his party would block any legislation that would lead to a reduction of Quebec’s political weight in the House of Commons. Democracy? With more than 50 per cent of its seats from Quebec, is the party really the NDQ — or can BC get its fairer representation? Steve Newman, Central Saanich

three days. Fortunately I’m going to Cedar to see my brother, and then to Vancouver to see my son who will have just got back from Zanzibar, so it shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll water everything well before leaving. To my delight there are three lovely big tomatoes almost ripe enough to eat. They are sitting right now next to a velvet couch, which, if they could speak would probably ask, “What’s going on here, anyway? I belong outside.” Helen Lang Be patient, m’dears, it won’t be that long before Over the Garden Fence you are back in your regular spot, or part of a salad if you don’t behave. Marcy L. called to share a disaster, hoping I might have a suggestion that might help. Every day she sweeps dozens of dead bumblebees off her deck, and, very upset, wonders what is causing this die-off. There is a glass ceiling over the deck. Could this be the problem? Bees flying senselessly againt the glass until exhausted they drop down dead, rather like flies against a window who never turn and try another route, just keep beating themselves against the glass. Never having heard of such a thing I could only suggest a tall fan directed at the ceiling, which might (hopefully) blow them away from the hot glass, so they can fly to safety. Marcy says there was no pollen on the legs or bodies of these bees. Especially disturbing to lose these valuable creatures, as our bee population is already in decline. Please call me if you have any ideas on what might be done. Do you have a gardening question or comment for Helen? Call her at 250-656-5918 or email editor@peninsulanewsreview.com.

Allan Antliff, who is helping to organize the Victoria Anarchist Book Fair and Festival of Anarchy, sits in his home surrounded by books and posters from previous years’ events.

Anarchists unite at literary feast Family-friendly event welcomes newcomers to explore movement Erin McCracken News staff

Victoria resident Allan Antliff won’t have to travel far to satisfy his specialized literary appetite. Others, however, will soon travel to Victoria from throughout North America for the sixth annual Victoria Anarchist Book Fair and Festival of Anarchy. “It will be larger than ever this year,” said Antliff, a member of the Victoria Anarchist Book Fair Collective. The two-day literary and cultural showcase drew 2,000 people last year. The festival will feature a series of events, culminating with the book fair on Sept. 10 and 11. Anarchists are people “who believe we can do better than we’re doing now in the world,” according to Antliff, an art history professor at the University of Victoria. The movement is about embracing radical change “to reorganize society to make it more equitable, more economically sustainable and peaceful,” he said. “The anarchist’s desire is to address these things constructively.” Antliff acknowledged that many

anarchists and sympathizers are stereotyped as violent activists. “(But) that isn’t the case at all. Anarchism is a very constructive movement.” Some people devote themselves to organic farming, community development, housing co-operatives or volunteering, he said. “When you tally it up, it doesn’t add up to madness or mayhem.” The free book fair will feature 20 different workshops on sustainable farming, workplace rights, surveillance issues and animal liberation, among other topics. There will also be book and information tables and readings on themes such as radical theory, history and practice. The growing popularity of the fair is a sign the anarchist community is thriving in Greater Victoria. Black Raven Records, for example, sells punk and metal music within the anarchist genre, and Camas Books & Infoshop is a not-for-profit anarchist literary resource. “I would say there are hundreds of sympathizers (in Greater Victoria) who support anarchist pro-jects,” Antliff said. The family-friendly book fair is open to anarchists and non-anarchists. There will be children’s activities, and free child-minding. “It’s an event for everyone,” Antliff said. “In fact, we’re looking for people to attend who aren’t familiar with anarchism.” For details or to volunteer, visit victoriaanarchistbookfair.ca. emccracken@vicnews.com

Summer series comes to an end Thirty teams from throughout the Island and Vancouver participated in the Domino’s Doubles Finale tournament, closing the final chapter to 25 years of summer volleyball tournaments.Perfect weather, excellent competition and great prizes marked the last tournament of the Keg Summer Series. Camosun’s assistant coach Dave Dooley partnered with former Camosun star middle blocker, Richard Westergaard to capture the Pro division final. Their spike serving was “on fire” in the final and they had a dominant 21-15; 21-12 win over University of Calgary’s Ali Sandholm and Jesse Knight who played on the AVP semi-pro circuit in the USA. Brett Halgren and Cole Prest used their impressive defence to tough out a three-set tiebreaker win to capture the bronze against brothers Lars and Sven Bornemann. The Bornemann brothers had an upset three-set tie-breaker victory in the quarter-final against brothers Nick and Josh Coutts (former BCAA first all-star) who won the round robin portion of the tournament. The team of Adam Vose and Russ Leedham won the first set 21-13 over the team of Jasmine Kim and Kim Howell in the closely contested Supercomp division.

Eyes at School

We all know that a student should be able to read what the teacher writes on the board, but there is more to good vision than this. Vision skills including depth perception, eye co-ordination and even color vision can have an effect on a child’s performance at school. While parents and teachers recognize the importance of vision in the development and well being of children, there are youngsters who fall behind at school because of undetected vision problems. Today, some school districts perform vision screening for their students. These valuable screenings do catch many vision problems that result in a decrease in visual acuity. However, some vision problems may slip through the cracks and these screenings should not be confused with a thorough vision examination by a Doctor of Optometry. Teachers are often the first people to pick up a vision problem at school. An observant parent is also in an excellent position to pick up on any symptoms of vision problems in a young child. Although the following list isn’t considered exhaustive, signs to look for include: Covering an eye or closing an eye; squinting; turning or tilting the head to one side; rubbing the eyes; headaches; especially after reading; reports of blurred vision; and losing one’s place while reading. If there is any question about a child’s vision, a complete eye examination is recommended.

A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of confidence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.
