CRD will look at Central Saanich development Residents aid request Laura Lavin News Staff

Saanich councillor and Capital Regional District director Vic Derman expressed concerns about recent decisions made by Central Saanich council to the CRD board last week. Derman made a motion to the Capital Regional District to request staff to bring forward “Vic’s got a reports on several projects in Central certain agenda of Saanich which he his own and he’s said can be considto be inconsispersuaded the CRD ered tent with the Regional board to go along Growth Strategy and the municipality’s with it.” context statement. - Jack Mar The projects include the Vantreight development, the Peninsula Co-op’s proposed grocery store, the Senanus waterline, a subdivision on McPhail Road, the proposed rezoning of Woodwynn Farms and the proposed Northwest quadrant water service area. In his rationale, Durman stated the “action of Central Saanich municipality have threatened the integrity of the Regional Growth Strategy and its amending process.” Central Saanich councillor Ron Kubek called Derman’s motion “ill-advised” and wrote to the CRD board outlining his concerns. “There’s no legitimate basis for Derman’s declaration and accusation that Central Saanich’s thorough decision making process and official actions are inconsistent with the RGS and context statement. His statement that ‘it can be considered’ assumes the truth of something he wants to be able to prove, but can’t and he’s basing his beliefs on incorrect information,” said Kubek.

Brave sailors paddle for the win during the 26th annual Slegg Lumber Build a Quick Boat competition that ends the Sidney Days Canada Day festivities.

Record number of boats afloat Laura Lavin News Staff

From sleek kayaks, like eventual winner Sea Biscuit, and rafts strung together with garbage cans to a ‘submarine’ that barely got off the beach, the 26th annual Slegg Lumber Build a Quick Boat competition helped end Sidney Days with uproarious laughter. For four hours during the afternoon of Canada

Day, would-be sailors pounded nails and used rolls of plastic and duct tape to secure their boats for the race around the bouys off Glass Beach in Sidney. Crowds filled the beach to watch the popular race, and with plenty of good-natured rivalry a record number of 19 boats hit the waves and paddles flew as they vied for trophies provided by the local company.

School district balances books with extra cash The Saanich School District balanced its budget after receiving a last-minute release of funds from the province. Since April, district trustees have said they planned to contravene the School Act and put forward a deficit budget for 2011-12 school year by the June 30 deadline. When the Ministry of Education released $171,289 in holdback funds to the district on June 24 — an amount based on enrolment numbers and usually held until the fall — the board tweaked its budget to eliminate the remaining $26,000 shortfall.

Our post-Afghan role will change July 5 isn’t likely to leave a lasting mark on history. However, the end of Canada’s mission in Afghanistan is a historic moment for our nation. The book is closed on our decade-long involvement and it will take at least as much time before we’ll truly understand what our soldiers were able to achieve. Locally, more than 300 members of the Canadian Forces stationed at CFB Esquimalt took part in operations in Afghanistan. These men and women served as doctors, nurses, medical assistants, construction engineers, divers, military police as well as roadside bomb disposal and combat support in one of the most dangerous places on the planet. The question now is what’s next for Canada’s military? After spending so much time and resources in Afghanistan the culture of our forces has been indelibly shaped by this experience. Of course, some of the attention is now focused on Libya and its ongoing civil war. From CFB Esquimalt, 250 personnel are preparing to sail for the North African nation. HMCS Vancouver, a frigate considered one of the workhorses of Canada’s Navy, is expected to leave from here early next week. It will join Canadian troops already fighting with NATO forces. But this does not appear to be the kind of endless conflict that was Afghanistan. And then there are plans for a ramped up military presence in the Arctic. This will also take tremendous resources but will be an entirely different kind of mission. The question remains about what our military’s role should be outside our borders. The war in Afghanistan cost Canadians more than $11 billion, a number that could double as we deal with the legacy of returning veterans. Despite our departure the work continues, including by a contingent of Canadians tasked with training Afghans to take charge of their own security. Elsewhere in the world we can only guess where the next trouble spot will be. We might not make a big deal come next July 5, but Canadians can take pride in the work done by our military personnel over the last decade and feel confident that whatever comes next, they’ll continue to make a difference on the world stage.

LETTERS Freedom to make our own decisions vital Re: U.S. assisted suicide cases poor examples (Letters, July 1) The letters from south of our border are poor examples. First of all, the doctor from Oregon probably works in a private hospital and his patient is able to afford good health insurance. It’s different here where universal health care (which I’m grateful for) means health care in a public hospital with wait lists for beds and bed pans. The co-ordinator of an organization that is against assisted suicide and not living in Canada can only offer information that supports his bias and describe legal issues relevant in his state. The lawyer from Seattle does not give credit to the individual who has made the personal and private — and I’m sure very difficult — decision to end his/her life within their circumstances which includes family dynamics. I doubt a physician would give the lethal dose of medication to someone who is not in an end-of-life-or debilitating condition. Whether or not that person is helped to take the medication is not the issue. It is the freedom to make decisions for ourselves, for our bodies. Francine Halle North Saanich

Climate reference for Victoria was incorrect In your Best of the City issue (vicnews. com), you refer to Victoria’s climate as Oceanic or Marine West Coast. This is incorrect. In the widely used Koppen climate classification, this would be Cfb (Oceanic), whereas Victoria is Csb (Mediterranean). The difference between Cfb and Csb is that Csb has dry summers,

defined as less than 30 millimetres of rain per month during the summer months and less than one third of the rainfall during the summer months, compared with the wettest winter month. In Victoria (as measured at Gonzales), summer rainfall is well below this threshold (21 mm in June, 14 mm in July, and 20 mm in August) and the summer months receive less than one-fifth as much precipitation as the wettest winter month. It looks like you got this from an incorrect statement in the Wikipedia article about Victoria’s climate. (The same article also states that Victoria’s climate is Mediterranean.)

Rail ambivalence fuelled by rising costs While the promise of investment by the province has improved the chances for the Island Corridor Foundation, the level of service required to maintain the endeavour may be the least of the challenges, as some conditions of the facilities and rail infrastructure may come at the expense of other categories in mass transit. There remains a significant backlog of repairs and potential new construction. Like any system, that means rail track requires maintenance and improvement all the time to reach good condition. Investments will be required to improve conditions at rail maintenance facilities and yards, yet many buildings and yards remain in fair to poor shape. If the province and feds fail to invest adequately in the rail, the level of service will suffer, and they will find themselves off the rails again, and we the taxpayers will never recover that investment.

On health, wind power blows away the alternative

David Suzuki

with Faisal Moola

Wind energy is increasingly being considered a viable and attractive power source. Many countries, including the U.S., Germany, Spain, China, and India, are putting policies into place to drive the development of their wind energy industries. In Canada, the amount of wind energy being harnessed for use in our homes, offices, and factories has grown quickly over the past few years, led by Ontario with its Green Energy Act. However, a backlash has been growing in many places where wind power is being developed. In Ontario, one of the main criticisms of wind development has been its impact on human health, mostly because of the noise that wind turbines produce. Yet, the peer-reviewed scientific research indicates that the sound from windmills, which generally falls into three categories (audible sound, low frequency, and infrasound), has little to no impact on human health. This is especially true if windmills are built far enough away from residences. For example, the required setback in Ontario is 550 metres. At this distance, the audible sound from windmills has been found to be below 40 decibels, which is around

the level of sound you’d find in most bedrooms and living rooms. Studies from the University of Massachusetts similarly found that even if the sound were audible, annoyance would be minimal. Critics have also pointed to low frequency sound and infrasound as the source of health impacts from wind turbines. These are sounds that are either difficult to hear or inaudible to humans. However, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health did a review of the scientific literature and found no evidence that low frequency sound from wind turbines causes adverse health effects. Research from Sweden and the Netherlands may shed some light on the opposition that windmills are facing, despite the lack of evidence for human health impacts. At or just under 40 decibels, 73 per cent of people could notice the sound and six per cent were annoyed. But those who did not like windmills or found them ugly were more likely to notice the sound and were more likely to be annoyed by it. Though we should always remain open-minded about new and emerging research on any issue, the evidence seems clear that wind

turbines built with appropriate setbacks do not constitute a health hazard. And wind becomes a more attractive energy source when you consider the health impacts of the main energy alternative, burning coal and other fossil fuels. The Canadian Medical Association estimated that in 2008 Canada’s air pollution was responsible for 21,000 premature deaths, 92,000 emergency room visits, and 620,000 visits to a doctor’s office. Even if you look only at the health impacts of Ontario coalfired power plants, the numbers are significant and startling. When considering whether Canada needs to curtail the development of its wind resources or expand wind power in the way that Ontario’s Green Energy Act proposes, we should heed the conclusion of Maine’s Centre for Disease Control. After dismissing the notion of a moratorium on wind development due to its health impacts, the Centre’s Dr. Dora Ann Mills concluded, “If there is any evidence for a moratorium, it is most likely on further use of fossil fuels, given their known and common effects on the health of our population.” As for the impacts on wildlife,

that’s another story. But most scientific research shows that newer technologies and proper locating can overcome most of the threats to birds and bats. One recent study also noted that “the number of birds killed in wind developments is substantially lower relative to estimated annual bird casualty rates from a variety of other anthropogenic factors including vehicles, buildings and windows, power transmission lines, communication towers, toxic chemicals including pesticides, and feral and domestic cats.” It’s never easy to find energy technologies that will satisfy everyone, but with the world facing ever-growing negative consequences of burning fossil fuels, we must weigh our options. In doing so, wind power comes out ahead. If we ensure that care is taken to use technologies with minimal environmental impact and to locate turbines in areas where effects on humans and animals are also minimal, there is no good reason to oppose wind power.

Cars smashed in Central Saanich spree Police are looking for vandals after a spree in Central Saanich left a wake of destroyed vehicles. Saturday night police were called to various areas of Saanichton and Brentwood Bay with reports of vehicle windows being smashed. “Police seized several terra cotta tiles that were used to break the windows,” said Cpl. Janis Jean in a media release. “In

one instance, the culprits broke into a car and physically moved it to an adjacent lot. In the course of this event, the vehicle windshield was smashed and the door frame broken.” The next night vehicles were targeted with old paint cans. Vehicles in the Tanner Ridge, Mount Newton X Road and West Saanich Road area had windows smashed using old rusty paint cans.

“Forensic Identification Officers are working in conjunction with patrol investigators to solve these crimes,” Jean said. Anyone with information on these crimes should call the Central Saanich Police Watch Commander at 250-652-4441 or call Victoria CrimeStoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). reporter@peninsulanewsreview. com

“Vic’s got a certain agenda of his own and he’s persuaded the CRD board to go along with it,” said Central Saanich Mayor Jack Mar. “Until the CRD investigates it and finds anything wrong, what are we supposed to do? “We have a right to do these things and for the CRD to step in and say we’re doing something wrong — I don’t think so,” Mar added. Kubek pointed out that the Vantreight decision was upheld in BC Supreme court, although a Central Saanich ratepayers group has appealed that decision. He also pointed out that the Senanus waterline was approved by the CRD, and that council is not in favour of rezoning Woodwynn Farms. Kubek also said, “it is unjustifiable that Mr. Derman would be opposed to an area that is onetwelfth of the municipality getting potable drinking water and fire protection. The other eleven-twelfths of the district has municipal water, yet you don’t see condominiums, townhouses and such on Glidden, Martindale, Island View and other areas. We thought that it was good to look at how we could provide a steady supply of municipal water for drinking and fire protection. There is no legitimate basis for Mr. Derman’s desire to deny any of the residents of Central Saanich safe drink-

ing water.” “I think (Derman’s) got his facts mixed up,” said Mar. “Vantreight, the waterline, the Northwest quadrant … Woodwynn Farms we turned down in a seven to nothing vote — what does he want us to do, give them commercial zoning?” Mar said allowing the Senanus waterline included an amendment to Central Saanich’s Official Community Plan. “It was sent to the CRD in 2009 and they passed council’s recommendation with no debate — now Derman’s jumping up and down talking about the waterline? He was there when it passed and there was no discussion at all,” said Mar. “When we make decisions in Central Saanich we are aware that 75 per cent of our land is not available for growth,” said Kubek. “We make decisions very carefully and I find it repugnant that the CRD director would take such a position with only partial information. It is improper for the CRD director to wield undue influence over elected municipal officials in other districts based on his personal opinions alone. He was not elected in Central Saanich as were no other on the CRD board other than the mayor.” Several residents who say the council is not acting in accordance with the OCP and RGS spoke in favour of the review and Derman’s motion was passed by the board.

Officers located a male who had been drinking and, to ensure his safety, drove him to his home in North Saanich.

Safe ride

A passenger asleep on the bus drew Central Saanich Police around 1 a.m.

on July 2. Police woke the cooperative man and drove him home to Brentwood Bay.

Cells hotel

A Nanaimo man spent the night in cells on July 2 after officers found him in the 1100 block of Verdier Avenue. The man was located laying on the side of the road, and had been drinking, police said. After failed attempts to contact family the man was placed in cells until sober and released in the morning.

Impaired charges

Police were called by the public about a possible impaired driver at Mount Newton X Road and Highway 17 on the eve of July 2. Police located a vehicle near Mount Newton and Central Saanich Roads and detected an odour of alcohol, plus noted signs of alcohol consumption. The officer started an impaired investigation and the North Saanich man driving was taken to the office for breath samples. He was given a roadside suspension and released on a promise to appear on charges of impaired driving and driving over .08.

CounterAttack time

A series of drivers were checked during a roadblock at Mount Newton X Road on July 2. At 9:25 p.m. an officer stopped a vehicle and after noting evidence of alcohol consumption, administered a

roadside screening. A Central Saanich man was issued a three-day immediate roadside prohibition and his vehicle impounded. Around 10 p.m. a North Saanich driver showed symptoms of alcohol consumption, after a roadside screening she was subsequently issued a three-day roadside suspension and the vehicle was impounded. Minutes later another driver, a Central Saanich man, earned a similar fate at the roadblock with a three-day suspension and vehicle impounded. The officers moved to West Saanich Road and Wallace Drive around 12:30 a.m. There, a Central Saanich driver showed signs of alcohol consumption and after a roadside screening the man was issued a three-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was impounded. Minutes later a Victoria driver exhibited symptoms of alcohol consumption and after a screening, the woman was issued a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Remove all valuables

A series of thefts from vehicles kept police hopping July 4. In the 7900 block of East Saanich Road a cell phone was stolen overnight. In the 7600 block of East Saanich a GPS and coins were stolen from another nearby vehicle. In the same block, another cell phone, a charger, iPod adapter and change were taken from a vehicle. A third vehicle was rummaged in the same block.

It may be months away, but John Doyle of Doyle and Bond garden design is already in the Christmas spirit. Doyle has put together a project that will see 21 fully-decorated Christmas trees donated to Saanich Peninsula Hospital in time for the festive season. Doyle said the donation was inspired by a talk he had with hospital volunteers, who believe the trees will help lift the spirits of patients staying at the hospital over the holidays. The “designer Christmas trees,” as Doyle refers to them, will each have their own theme, designed by a local

Sidney riders surged past last year's total on the big bike fundraiser ride. Teams took to the bicycle made for 30 and toured around Sidney to raise money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The community nearly dou-

bled its efforts raising $14,670 well up from last year's $8,680 total. “The spirit and dedication of the Sidney community is truly inspiring,� said Jeremy Loveday, Victoria’s community development coordinator, Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon. “Thanks to the efforts of all of our Big Bike rid-

ers and their sponsors we beat last year’s fundraising total by almost $6,000.� The goal is to raise $1.6 million in B.C. this year.

Peninsula teen overcomes major injury, returns to nationals Travis Paterson News staff

Not only did Sarah Bodine make the catch, she never dropped the ball. It was the first game of the 2010 Bantam Girls Fastpitch Canadian Championship held in View Royal last July. Bodine, who recently finished Grade 11 at St. Michaels University School, was playing first base for ’94 Victoria Devils. She chased down a foul ball and caught it, but broke her leg in two places as she collided awkwardly with the catcher. The bang-up resulted in major fractures to Bodine’s tibia and fibula. The nurse told her if the breaks were any more severe, the tendon damage would’ve been beyond repair. Bodine narrowly avoided amputation. A year later Bodine is back, a tumultuous journey behind her. But new challenges lie ahead. Her Devils are at the Canadian Open, playing in the U19 Futures Gold division. Their first two games are Tuesday, July 12. Playing in the Futures Gold is a coup for his team, said coach Bruce Lubinich. However, the tourney is more about experience than winning. He isn’t counting his team out, but the opposition is not only elite but up to three years older, and he wants the team to keep realistic expectations. As for Bodine’s presence on first base, it’s a boon, he said. “The big thing with having Bodine back is not only an excellent ball player but someone who keeps the team together on the field and in the game. “Her energy is amazingly huge, she gets everybody going and it’s tough to not have one of those types of players on your team.” At the time of her injury Bodine had no idea of its extent. She lay field-side in a state of shock before going to the hospital an hour later. The team played on and eventually finished fourth. Lubinich thinks Bodine’s injury had a lot to do with losing that game, and the team’s overall performance at last year’s nationals. “There were about five teams, any of which could have won on a given day,” he said. “We were rolling along (in the first game) up until Bodine’s

Sarah Bodine is back playing baseball for the ‘94 Victoria Devils, one year after a major leg injury suffered at last year’s fastpitch nationals in Victoria. injury, and I think the team had a hard time recovering from it. They were so concerned with her health.” Bodine’s return is a grand achievement. The 16-yearold could easily have given up sports, as it is still early in her recovery. She also got lucky the titanium rod in her leg didn’t stunt her leg’s growth, although the injured leg is now two inches longer than the other. During the recuperation Bodine lost 35 pounds (16 kilograms) to muscle atrophy in her lower body. It took her five months to walk, which she had to re-learn, and another two more after that before she could run. “I still can’t run well but I feel comfortable enough running the bases. Although, my mom says I look ridiculous,” Bodine said. It’s been a long year, an eyeopener and a time of spiritual

growth. To be back with the team means a lot more to Bodine than playing baseball again. “It was a mental injury. Dealing with it was all (upstairs). It brought me to where I’m at now, who I am, with a lot of faith in God.” Following the Canadian Open the ’94 Devils will challenge for the provincial title in Cloverdale. A top-three finish qualifies for the 2011 nationals in Winnipeg. Canada cupped Three Victoria teams are attending the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championships (formerly the Canada Cup) in Surrey, July 9-17. The Strawberry Vale Stealth are competing in the Showcase Select (16U) International Championship. The ’93 Victoria Devils will play in Pool A of the 27-team Futures Gold U19 division.

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. ta All it takes is an hour or so after school Wednesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required.
