Kids in judogi will start throwing each other around at Parkland secondary this week. Come fall it will be a class. For more than two decades, judo club has pumped up kids, building both strength and confidence through judo. At least that’s the report from the kids in today’s judo program at Parkland, which starts its season this week.

“It really builds your confidence because it’s not a team sport. You have to get out there and fight somebody,” said Lauren Wallace. “I only weighed 90 pounds when I started. Now I’m 125, so I definitely got fit. It’s a strength sport.” The Grade 12 student will begin her fourth year of judo this week. Trevor Bolduc starts his second season with the club. “There’s nothing like [judo] really. It’s built my confidence a fair amount,” the Grade 10 student said. He likes the people and the pace of the group, which meets twice a week.

School prepares to host an academy for the martial art Bethany Lyon-Justice, 17, found judo two years ago simply for fitness, but was rewarded with more. “It lets out anger, stress and I get to beat guys,” she said. “It’s helped build strength and makes you confident.” Mickey Fitzgerald, a sixth degree black belt who also coaches the Victoria Judo Club, will be the man developing strength and confidence among students.

Co-op must release members’ information, judge rules Organization hasn’t decided whether to appeal decision Erin Cardone News staff

A Peninsula Co-op member who fought – and won – to have members’ contact information distributed said it’s a victory for democracy.

When he came to the North Saanich high school 23 years ago, Fitzgerald began imparting his wisdom on students. “I just decided to see what would happen,� he said. “We really feel like we meet a need with the kids. We try to be mentors to the students.� He’s seen a few fierce competitors since, but his favourite kids are those “at a loss.� “It kept me on the straight and narrow,� he said of his 40 years of practising the martial art. “For me it’s not a sport. It’s a way of life.� The school will maintain the club, but starting in September students can sign up to learn that way of life in the Parkland judo academy. “If I have the chance, I’m going to snatch it up,� said 15-year-old Bolduc.

Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Gaul ruled the Co-operative Association Act says members’ contact info must be released if the requester plans to use it for corporate purposes. For Peninsula Co-op general manager Ron Heal, it means a breach of privacy for its 56,000 members. “We take the privacy of our members’ information very seriously,� he said. “It was our opinion and belief that the Per-

Supreme Court in January 2011. “The more you engage people in the policies of the Co-op and what the future of the enterprise can be, the more people are going to be paying attention and the better the Co-op will be, the more accountable the directors will be to the membership. “That’s the one underlying element of

lifelong interest in personal physical and mental well being through the judo training alongside a curriculum that includes history, nutrition and psychology. “It’ll broaden the horizon for judo,� Lyon-Justice said. “It’s an alternative to gym, plus it’s fun.� It’s the perfect class for someone in search of an experience and looking to challenge him or herself, said Andre Gogol, a Stelly’s teacher adding judo academy to his workload. “There’s a tremendous amount of expertise here,� said Jose Tudela. The Parkland teacher holds a brown belt and is among the four instructors to take on teaching the academy. Vice-principal Spencer Gray rounds out the qualified instructors for the judo academy.

Trustees considered moving recess effective Feb. 13, but felt there should be more time to address safety and logistical concerns expressed by parents. “If we’re going to do it we need to make sure there’s time for those concerns to be addressed,” said Dunford. Elder was confident teachers would deal with giving students exercise and nutrition breaks as they see fit, as they do during other long classroom periods that aren’t broken up. However, he was concerned with the logistics and safety of students and asked for time to plan for a “safe and manageable handoff to parents” at the end of the school day at 2:40 p.m. The board stipulated it wouldn’t move recess if safety and logistics could not be addressed. They also asked that information going home be clearly worded so parents don’t feel pressured to pick up kids early. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

The Saanich school district will develop some form of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender diversity policy in an effort to have all staff and students feel safe. “Although the district has in place several policies which prohibit discrimination in general, it is a timely issue and we want to be ahead of it,” said trustee Tim Dunford. “It is prudent that this board consider that specific approach at this time.” The goal, according to a report to the school board from superintendent Keven Elder, is to ensure the district meets its motto “safe places to be.” “The issue has not presented itself overtly in Saanich, but bias and disrespect continue to be evident across B.C.,” Elder wrote in a report to the board. “While this is primarily a quiet epidemic, where ignorance and negativity are perpetrated out of sight of adults, it can surface in self-destructive attitudes and behaviours of the victims, up to and including suicide.” The board asked Elder to engage with staff, school LGBT clubs and student leadership groups and return with draft policy language later this month.

Marigold Nurseries’ Brooke Smith’s roots in the family business made her a finalist in the 2012 B.C. and Yukon Outstanding Young Farmer Awards. Smith was nominated for the honour after judges selected her among B.C.’s top three people under 40 working in the agriculture industry. Smith, the third generation of the Smith family to operate Marigold Nurseries, runs the garden centre on Bell-McKinnon Road in Duncan. “My grandfather started the nursery back in 1944 in Saanichton, and my father and our family started the garden centre in Duncan two years ago,” Smith said. Marigold Nurseries in Central Saanich was strictly wholesale until the early 1970s, when the business branched into retail. The current retail store was built in the early 1980s. Ray and Len Smith started working with their dad Les full time after high school. Since Len retired in 2001, Ray runs the business with his three children, Brooke, Rayanne and Randy, who work at the nursery full time. Brooke Smith can be spotted with her clan in the nursery’s TV commercials and the kids help out at the store. A pair of farmers from Chilliwack won the award at the B.C.

Free tickets to Haida sailboat stolen Hearts awards from Brentwood Bay available now “Come one, come all.” That’s what Beacon Community Services board chair Bob Cronin and Peninsula News Review publisher Jim Parker are saying about the Feb. 16 Hearts of the Community Volunteer awards ceremony and free community luncheon. Co-sponsored by Beacon Community Services and the News Review, the 14th annual event will celebrate and honour Peninsula volunteers. Tickets are free but the theatre often fills for the event, Cronin said, so people are advised to get their tickets well ahead of time. “People look forward to it,” Cronin said. “It’s a really wonderful, heartwarming ceremony, with fabulous entertainment by talented musicians and actors from Stelly’s secondary, good food and a strong sense of community and caring.” “This is a giant community thank you to the volunteers who help make this such a great place to be,” Parker said. “It’s become something of a community tradition. We’re proud to continue it and we’re looking forward to seeing as many members of the community as possible there.” The event kicks off at 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Mary Winspear Centre. It’s the culmination of an awards process which began in early January, with the public being invited to nominate people whose volunteer work has benefited the Peninsula. Nominations closed Jan. 30; award winners will be announced at the public ceremony, which will be immediately followed by a free luncheon for all attendees. Free tickets are available from the Peninsula News Review office at 6-9843 Second St., any Beacon Peninsula thrift store, Beacon’s 9860 Third St. office, and the Shoal Activity Centre.

Central Saanich police want boaters to be wary of a stolen sailboat on the seas. The 26-foot blue and white Haida Shahbandar bears the registration number 14K39917 on the side. It has blue sail covers and a grey stripe along the side. It is valued around $4,500. The boat was moored in Brentwood Bay and was last seen by the owner in mid January. Anyone spotting the boat, or with information on the theft should call Central Saanich Police Service at 250-652-4441.

Central Saanich ratepayers group applies to take Vantreight issue to highest court Erin Cardone News staff

A residents organization in Central Saanich has applied to take its concerns about the Vantreight Farms development to the Supreme Court of Canada. Last Wednesday, Jan. 25, the Residents and Ratepayers of Central Saanich Society announced they applied for leave to appeal a B.C. Court of Appeal decision on the development. “We figured we’d spent enough money on this issue,” said Ian Cameron, president of the society, “but our

lawyers felt that it was an important issue, and we decided to apply for leave if we could do it at no cost to us. West Coast Environmental Law provided funding, so we’re going ahead with it.” The society is challenging a Central Saanich bylaw that allows the development of 37 acres of land on the Vantreight property, to create 57 single-family houses. “The Central Saanich [official community plan] says there will be no development outside of the urban containment boundaries,” Cameron said.

“The proposed Vantreight subdivision is clearly outside of the Saanichton containment boundary and is not allowed by the OCP. The OCP was reviewed only two years before the bylaw passed and at that time the people of Central Saanich reaffirmed loudly and clearly that they did not want sprawl to eat up farm land. Growth was to be within the urban containment boundaries. This isn’t. It doesn’t

seem reasonable that four people should be able to flout the will of hundreds of residents, elected or not.” Vantreight won rulings from the B.C. Supreme Court and Court of Appeal that decided the development did not violate Central Saanich’s official community plan. Ian Vantreight recently told the Peninsula News Review he believed the changes of the case making it to

that level were slim. He plans to break ground on the development in the spring. The development on Vantreight’s farm also includes 7.5 acres of farm land donated to the district for a community garden. Onethird of the site would be set aside for park use, open public space and trails. Central Saanich council approved the plans one year ago. editor@peninsulanews review.com

OUR VIEW

Re-evaluate Co-op’s policy Peninsula Co-op pleaded protection of its members’ contact information when it responded to a B.C. Supreme Court ruling issued last week. General manager Ron Heal told the News Review the Co-op had withheld members’ names and addresses, despite requests for the information, for the sake of privacy. Under the Co-operative Association Act and as upheld by Justice Geoffrey Gaul, that information must be released if it is requested for certain purposes, such as contacting members before election time for its board of directors, which happens this spring. In signing a Peninsula Co-op membership application, members agree their information can be used for “communicating with you regarding your membership or other matters of concern to the Co-op and its members” and “meeting legal and regulatory requirements.” Some members have already expressed dismay at the ruling. Part of the problem might come from the somewhat ambiguous wording on that application form. It’s doubtful many Co-op applicants would read the Co-op Act before signing up. Peninsula Co-op must be more forthright with its members about the use of their contact information by rewording that application form. For the sake of democracy, members must be contacted at election time – annually – to inform them of who the candidates are and what they stand for. Most importantly, the Co-op can’t continue to hide behind its perceptions of information protection laws. The 2009 board of directors election was nullified by an arbitrator due to its “oppressive” style that tried to turn results in the incumbents’ favour. The popularity of the co-op model is evident by the 56,000 members who subscribe to the Peninsula organization. A co-op is meant to be run by its members, for its members. Its nature is different than other types of businesses. Peninsula Co-op should take a hard second look at why it is withholding this information and return to the values behind its namesake.

BCPSEA estimates the union’s proposal would cost an additional $880 million over three years. And that’s not counting the union’s demand for $300 million a year to reduce class sizes and increase special needs support staff. Teachers are still being compensated under the final terms of a contract that provided 16 per cent in wage increases over five years, in the midst of a harsh recession. And here’s a fun math fact. With percentage wage increases, three plus six plus six doesn’t equal 15. It’s closer to 16, because later raises are calculated on a larger base. So on wages alone, the BCTF wants the same in three years that it just got in five, at a time when private sector unions take layoffs and wage cuts, and the province is billions in the red. The president of the Langley Teachers’ Association went on CKNW radio and succinctly summed up the BCTF’s position. Raise income taxes across the board. Gordon Campbell cut everyone’s taxes by 25 per cent in 2001, and cut education to pay for it. They’re still fighting the 2005 election.

PENINSULA NEWS NEWS REVIEW REVIEW -- Wednesday, Wednesday,February February1, 1,2012 2012 PENINSULA

LETTERS Columnist misses many Liberal ‘elephants’ Re: Harsh year ahead for B.C. politics (B.C. Views, Jan. 4) Tom Fletcher’s column identifies some immediate problems facing the province in 2012, but misses some large elephants in the room. Mr. Fletcher cites Liberal rhetoric about “personalized education” as an issue, but ignores the thousands of classrooms that exceed mandated class sizes, and numbers of special needs students per class – a curious omission since the courts recently ordered the Liberals to restore the funding they illegally stripped from teachers’ contracts. The potential $250 million shortfall in health transfers to B.C. announced by the Harper government is a problem. But the no

strings deal also means the Conservatives are abandoning their role in protecting and reforming public health care. The Liberals are silent on the new Harper crime bill that could download hundreds of millions in annual costs onto the B.C. justice and corrections system already reeling from provincial cuts. On energy and environment, Mr. Fletcher supports NDP proposals to fund transit with carbon taxes and to stop transfers of carbon taxes from schools and hospitals to large industrial polluters. But why do these large polluters pay no carbon tax on their emissions? The proposed Northern Gateway tar sands pipeline threatens hundreds of fish-bearing streams in B.C., and our pristine northern coastline, yet creates no more

Readers respond: Kudos for criticism on U.S. meddling Re: Questioning U.S. “environmentalists” (B.C. Views, Jan. 25) Congratulations on the column by Tom Fletcher. The de-marketing of Canadian industries to favour those of the U.S., exposed by Vancouver researcher Vivian Krause, with major opposing funding from deep pocketed U.S. foundations is digraceful and potentially extremely harmful. This situation has only recently been fully recognized as a serious threat by our federal government. Peter Chance Sidney

Questioning Tom Fletcher’s tastebuds Re: Questioning U.S. “environmentalists” (B.C. Views, Jan. 25) Permit me to refute for the moment just one of the “three entrenched notions” by environmentalists that Tom Fletcher outrageously dismisses as false that Alaska salmon is better than farmed salmon. Anyone who has any

interest in food at all knows that wild salmon tastes vastly superior to farmed salmon. Fletcher obviously has no interest in seafood and that statement, especially here on the Pacific coast, shrieks of ignorance. Certainly his taste buds, if he has any, have never been developed. What does he live on, factory food? Hans Edwards North Saanich

‘Other farmers’ would benefit Brett Smyth asks “What about other farmers in NS?” (Letters, Jan. 25). Smyth and all farmers should remember that half of revenue from the commercial development on Sandown for the first five years is earmarked for agriculture in general in North Saanich, which would include, but not be limited to, improvements to Sandown. It could be used to promote agriculture and support all farmers in North Saanich as well. Other benefits to local farmers would be the opportunity to establish a full-time farmer’s market there, and possibly

facilities to add value to farm products. And along with all North Saanich taxpayers, local farmers would also benefit from Sandown’s commercial tax revenue. On “subsidizing” farmers: The purpose of subsidies is that they are meant to provide for a need that the normal market forces will not fill. That’s why we subsidize housing, education, medical care, community and fire halls, roads, sewers, recreation centres – and even agriculture. In fact, our farmers already have to compete with U.S. farmers who are also subsidized. We cannot count on locally grown food being produced here if new farmers have to buy the land they farm – they simply can’t afford it. However, there is no intention to subsidize farming at Sandown. Lease rates could be set at market rates. The irony here is that many North Saanich farmers are farming land that was bought by their parents or grandparents when land was still far more affordable than it is now. If Smyth wanted to start

But let’s not pull up the drawbridge now: Smyth’s farm is not big enough to support everyone who needs to eat from it. However, if Sandown goes through, Smyth will be able to lease land there, too.

SPORTS Panthers beat Islanders in OT Friday night finished the way every game should end: on the last shot by the home squad in sudden death overtime, with the crowd leaping to their feet, cheering madly. The home bench pours over the boards and spills onto the ice and 20 crazed young hockey players race to the ice in a frenzied mob to celebrate together. This storybook finish played out in spades Friday evening at the Panorama Recreation Centre when hulking 6’3”, 205-pound Panthers defenceman Grayson Vickers unleashed his fury, wiring a laser beam past Kerry Park Islanders goaltender Jackson Jane from the high slot with two minutes left in the extra frame to lift the Cats to a 6-5 heart-stopping win. The game-winner was the rookie’s first goal of his junior career. Vickers, who happens to wear #6 looked eerily like another #6 – Vancouver Canuck Sami Salo, with his composure, his knack for making the big play in overtime, and the sheer power of the game-winning blast. “Yes, that is a great comparison on that play,” said Pan-

Josh Bloomenthal, Ryan Hunter and Dane Gibson added singles while 19-yearold Peninsula Minor Hockey product Zach Wear stopped 39 of 44 shots – many of them outstanding – in collecting the win. “I feel [Vickers] like quite a few others, has grown in the past several weeks and even though we are sitting around .500 we could really surprise coming down the stretch and into the second season when the games really matter most,” Zubersky said.

Vikes swimmer splashes closer to Olympic Games

Open-water swim specialist Richard Weinberger of the University of Victoria Vikes is narrowing in on an Olympic berth for Canada at the London Games. Weinberger won bronze in a FINA 10-kilometre swim in Brazil over the weekend, with a time of two hours, 11 minutes and 42.34 seconds. His finish was just seconds behind world champion Spyros Gianniotis (Greece) in first and second-place Nicola Bolzonello (Italy). If no other Canadian places higher than third next week in Argentina, Weinberger will compete in the Portugal Olympic Qualifier race in June.

February – time to think about planting indoors Helen Lang

Over the Garden Fence

Well, hello, February, one month closer to spring and I for one am glad to think that winter is almost over. Oh, we’ll get the odd storm with wind and rain, but not likely any more snow, for which we should be thankful. Annie has already brought me a bouquet of snowdrops, some

head start, I’ll keep them inside until the seeds sprout, and then put them outside, covering the mini greenouses with some Reemay cloth, to further protect the (hopefully) youthful plants. I got a call from Alice D. to ask if she had brought a chunk of fat into the house

small daisies and a spray of winter jasmine, a token of things to come, so it won’t be long now. Cher has given me something I’d never seen before: a couple of miniature greenhouses, large enough to start some seeds and I propose to start sweetpea seeds just to give them a

when it was frozen, could she now put it back outside. I’d say she could, especially if she kept the fat in the fridge. Birds that will eat worms probably wouldn’t object to fat that had seen better days and talking about birds, I was shocked to see a flock of 10 robins on the bare ground

across the street. Alice also asked if I’d tell you she has too many house plants and would be happy to share them. Her telephone number is 250-652-1511. Helen Lang has been the Peninsula News Review’s garden columnist for more than 30 years.

Ministry investigates fuel spill reporting Erin Cardone News staff

Environment ministry staff and contractors are monitoring a diesel fuel spill near the Tseycum First Nation that might affect Patricia Bay. Up to 800 litres of fuel spilled from a generator at Epicure Selections, at 10555 West Saanich Rd., likely on Jan. 22. The spill was reported on Jan. 24, shortly before 6 p.m. “Ministry staff continue to discuss the spill and response actions with the Victorian Epicure and liaise with other agencies and stakeholders. … Staff will be conducting further on-site follow-up this week,” said Emily Laing, a ministry spokesperson. “Emergency response staff’s initial priorities were to ensure that the spill had been stopped and any gross contamination was being appropriately addressed by Victorian Epicure.” Ministry staff met with Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Tseycum First Nation to discuss the spill and remediation. “We’re concerned about the environment, the beach. We’ve been working on it for 15, 20 years and we’d like to have a good working relationship with our neighbours,” said Kristen Bill, band administrator for the Tseycum First Nation. The ministry tasked Epicure Selections with providing an environmental impact assessment. “Staff have also advised both federal enforcement staff and the Conservation Officer Service of the incident and concerns relating to the reporting of the spill in order for enforcement related issues to be appropriately investigated,” Laing said. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGUES CONTESTS PRODUCTS STORES FLYERS DEALS COUPONS BROCHURES CATALOGU

Coast Guard celebrates its 50th at ceremony in North Saanich Erin Cardone News staff

Although the Canadian Coast Guard celebrated its 50th anniversary on Thursday, the service has been around much longer. “Services on the water were provided by the federal government in one way or another, probably since the 1800s,” said Vija Poruks, assistant commissioner for the Canadian Coast Guard’s Pacific Region. “Even though the formal organization didn’t officially occur until 1962, we’ve really been around much longer than that.” She and other Coast Guard brass from the west were on hand at a small ceremony to mark the occasion at the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’ Institute of Ocean Sciences. About 45 Coast Guard employees ate birthday cake and listened to speeches. In part, the future looks bright for the Coast Guard’s Pacific division. It’s getting four new vessels – a new offshore oceanographic fisheries vessel, based at Victoria’s Huron Street station, two new mid-shore patrol vessels and a new hover craft

Meanwhile, the organization is subject to cost cutting, like many other branches of the federal government. Poruks said the Coast Guard will have to reconsider its use of technology, try to cut the red tape required to get some

things done and consider business partnerships to minimize its budget. “It’s not going to be easy, but I’m confident we can live up to these challenges,” Poruks told the group. Visibility and interaction with the community is also a major goal for the coming year. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Randy Pearson, shown at his Saanich farm, recently won a B.C. Supreme Court case which could force Peninsula Co-op to release the contact information of its 56,000 members for certain purposes.

Legal battle follows controversial election Continued from page A3

Pearson’s application to the court stems from a 2009 election for the Co-op’s directors, during the time the Co-op was applying to build a grocery store on land it owns on West Saanich Road. “It was an absolute chaotic situation and probably the most undemocratic meeting I’d seen in my life. I was just appalled,” Pearson said. “I left there and I thought, you can’t do this stuff, it’s so bad.” Pearson launched an arbitration soon after and in early 2010, arbitrator Jakob de Villiers nullified the 2009 election, and ordered a re-election. “I’m a member of this Co-op and I want to speak out against [the development]. That’s what brought me to the [election meeting],” Pearson said. “But when I saw how it was run and when I saw the general manager get up on the podium and say vote for the incumbents … it was so wrong and so bush league. That’s what motivated me.” Heal couldn’t confirm whether Peninsula Co-op would appeal Gaul’s decision. “We’re going to assess our options

“We’re going to assess our options on how we can continue to keep that information secure.” – Ron Heal, general manager, Peninsula Co-op on how we can continue to keep that information secure. I don’t know right now where that avenue’s going to take us.” In signing a Peninsula Co-op membership application, members agree their information can be used for “communicating with you regarding your membership or other matters of concern to the Co-op and its members” and “meeting legal and regulatory requirements.” Pearson said he is requesting the membership list be released to him. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

United Way’s helping work continues despite fundraising goal shortfall Annual workplace campaign short of $6.3 million goal Children, families, adults, seniors – the United Way of Greater Victoria has touched countless lives in 75 years. This year, the organization will distribute almost $5 million to 68 Greater Victoria and Gulf Island charities and 117 programs and services. Much of the $5.9 million recently generated through its recent annual workplace campaign will assist nonprofit groups in 2013, the United Way announced on Thursday, Jan. 26.

“Although the United Way is somewhat short on achieving this year’s goal – 94 per cent of the $6.3-million goal was raised – the organization is totally committed to the approved programs and looks forward to very positive outcomes for children, families, adults-in-need and seniors,” Linda Hughes, CEO of the United Way of Greater Victoria, said in a statement. The United Way of Greater Victoria strives to support children and youth, people with mental health, addiction or disability issues, as well as helping adults find housing and employment. emccracken@vicnews.com

Canine dental maintenance costly Your pet’s mouth: home to a dental emergency? Natalie North News staff

A

digital heartbeat pumps out across the room as a woman in scrubs approaches a steel operating table. The two furry legs of a four-month-old black labrador about to be spayed flop across a heated blanket. Veterinarian Sue McTaggart points to a broken baby tooth in the mouth of the anesthetized animal. If the dog wasn’t put under to be spayed, McTaggart wouldn’t have been able to convince the dog owner to pay for the tooth extraction, she said, even though the rot could spread below the gums to the adult tooth and on to the dog’s jawbone. A Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry trained at the University of Saskatoon and a teacher of veterinary dentistry through her North Saanich practice, McTaggart is speaking up about what she sees as a little-known epidemic among dog and cat owners: untreated dental emergencies. “Animals suffer in silence because, in the wild, the weakest is killed by the leader, which at home is the owner, so that’s the last person they’re going to complain to,” she said. Inside another exam room at Dean Park Pet Hospital, McTaggart revisits images of infected mouths she’s seen come through her office, some showing exposed roots or bleeding gums, others capturing bone loss. Many illustrate dental diseases on back molars – too far back to be cleaned without anesthetic, she said. Dental specialists, such as McTaggart, maintain that anesthetic is required to reach all sides of all teeth and to extract trapped food, hair, grass or bacteria below the gum line. However, a growing number of registered businesses offer cosmetic cleaning above the gums, without using anesthetic, for far less than the suggested cleaning prices set by the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia. One such business is K-9 Brite Bark, which has operations in Saanich, Gibsons and Duncan.

Natalie North/News staff

Dr. Sue McTaggart, a Fellow of the Academy of Veterinary Dentistry holds Norm – a pug cross – inside an exam room at her McTavish Road practice. Sylvia Macdonald, who operated a former Oak Baybased grooming business known as The Barking Lot, founded K-9 Brite Bark after years of witnessing pets die due to anesthetic use, she said. Macdonald charges between $200 and $500 to clean dogs’ teeth and up to $300 for felines. The College of Veterinarians of B.C. sets the range for cleaning, including antibiotics, pain medication and X-rays at $600 to $700 for dogs and $538 to $545 for cats.

In 2005, the provincial veterinarians college, known then as the B.C. Veterinary Medical Association, sought a B.C. Supreme Court injunction against Macdonald. She was ordered to stop providing any dental care, remove the word “dental” from her business name and cease all advertising from the veterinary section of the yellow pages. However, the court noted that the Veterinarians Act does not clearly define what dentistry entails and thus could not rule on whether

cleaning above the gum line should be classified as dentistry. Dr. John Brocklebank, the college’s deputy registrar, said the college has since lobbied for a clearer definition of dentistry to distinguish what constitutes cosmetic procedures. Macdonald retains the right to continue cleaning teeth above the gums. “This is not a medical service,” Macdonald said. “I’m not poking or prodding. I’m taking the calculus and tartar off of the teeth before it goes underneath the [gums] and creates the problem and I’m teaching the client how to maintain. It’s a completely different service.” The B.C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ chief animal health officer sympathizes with the fear of anesthetics from those who may have experienced pet loss in the past, but ultimately agrees with Brar and McTaggart. “If you’ve had to experience it, the trauma and the loss [of losing an animal due to anesthetic] is huge and very real,” said animal health officer James Lawson, noting anesthetic complications have greatly decreased over the last two decades. The death rate of pets anesthetized at the SPCA hospital is about one in 20,000 for all surgeries. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Vision Vision Matters Matters Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Caring for Your Glasses We wash our windshields when they are dirty, why not do the same for our glasses? Dirty, scratched, and misaligned glasses distort our sight, and increase glare problems. They do not, however, harm our eyes. Scratches may weaken the lenses’ resistance to impact. The following are some easy tips for proper eyeglass care: • Clean your glasses regularly using warm water and soap or special eyeglass cleaners to remove oils and dirt from the lenses. • Keep your glasses in their case when not in use. • Never set glasses down with the lenses touching the table or counter top. • Put on and take off your glasses using two hands. Hold each temple about midway, and gently slide them over your ears. • Avoid letting others try on your glasses as this may throw off the alignment. • Have your glasses readjusted periodically. If vision problems persist even with clean, dry, and properly adjusted glasses, consult your Optometrist.

Become a Psychiatric Nurse in your own community There is an urgent need for more Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPN), particularly outside the urban areas of the province. And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other financing options available to qualified applicants.

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.
