Cougar shot in downtown Wild animal killed by Conservation officer after sighting in Sidney Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

A conservation officer killed a cougar on the Sidney waterfront early Friday morning (July 8). The Sidney North Saanich RCMP were called for a cougar spotted near the McTavish Road interchange around 12:30 a.m. “They found the cougar and followed it … to the Town of Sidney, right downtown,” said “They found Cpl. Chris Swain of the cougar and Sidney North Saanich followed it … to the RCMP. While police awaited Town of Sidney.” conservation officers, - Chris Swain the wildcat made its way down Beacon Avenue to the Beacon pier. “We surrounded it and contained it until conservation arrived,” Swain said. BC Conservation officers determined that it was unsafe to attempt to tranquilize the animal and it was shot and killed. Last week, RCMP and BC Conservation issued a warning to the public about confirmed sightings of an adult cougar in Horth Hill. “It is unknown at this time if the cougar shot and killed is the same cougar that has been spotted in the Horth Hill Region of North Saanich, however the proximity of the two events can not be ignored,” Swain said. Police are still asking the public to remain vigilant and take the necessary precautions, to ensure they minimize the chance of interaction with a cougar. Closely supervise young children and pets, stay to well travelled routes, and avoid travelling alone. Those who spot a cougar should stay calm and keep the cougar in view, according to Conservation literature. Pick up children immediately and back away slowly ensuring that the PLEASE SEE: Attack back with cougar, Page A5

The District of North Saanich will harvest lavender this week.

FledgeFest draws worldwide visitors Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

The population of people exploded on one West Saanich Road bend last week as eagle watchers celebrated FledgeFest. “Each year we meet at the south fence … to watch the Sidney eaglets take their first flights,” said Karen Bills, of Hancock Wildlife Foundation which created the Peninsula’s most-watched online reality show. On July 7, the municipally-owned green space adjacent to Patricia Bay quickly filled as more than 30 people, carrying cameras and binoculars, gathered to watch Ma and Pa Sidney and their trio of eaglets. It was the day the eldest, Flyer, turned 12 weeks old, the usual age for

David Hancock checks his watch as if guessing what time Flyer might make his first move to fly. son admits he’s hooked. He too discovered the Hornby eagle nest camera in 2006, during an event at the Maritime Heritage Centre in his hometown Campbell River. “When we went home we went on to the computer … and got to watch this camera,” he said. “It’s just fascinating to watch wildlife that way; the chance to see magnificent bird like the eagle, raising the young, laying the eggs, the whole shebang. Just fascinating. And then the youngsters, when they

take off …” That first year, the camera was far off enough that they could watch ‘Big’ and ‘Little’ fledge online. The next year FledgeFest started, and Simpson was there. “It’s neat to see the people behind the crazy names that we use, handles you might say, I’m known as ‘eagledude’ on the site,” Simpson said. To paraphrase one of the many posters in the online forum: they come for the eagles, and stay for the friends. Introductions, catching

up and conversation made up for the lack of eaglet flight at this year’s FledgeFest, where Ma and Pa took to the skies, as did a 443 Sea King helicopter and a pair of turkey vultures, but no juvenile eagles, despite Hancock’s prediction. “Seven minutes,” joked Hancock, the man who started it all. The crowd got wound up a couple of times as Flyer neared the edge, or ‘branched’ (hopping off the nest to a branch). Though it’s difficult to tell with the nest camera a bit of a blur after the eaglets ‘fouled’ it, they figure at least one of the young ones, Flyer, Burrows or Snuggles is out and about. “A fledge has occurred at the Sidney nest,” Bills said Sunday. “At least one of the eaglets is now flying in and out of the nest. The other two have been seen branching, which is what we call it when they jump to other branches in the nest tree. Without a clear lens on the camera we cannot yet determine if the other two have truly fledged yet.” reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

If a cougar shows interest or follows you, respond aggressively. Maintain eye contact with the cougar, show your teeth and make loud noise. Arm yourself with rocks or sticks as weapons. Crouch down as little as possible when bending down to pick up things off of the ground. If a cougar attacks, fight back. Convince the cougar you are a threat and not prey. Use anything you can as a weapon. Focus your attack on the cougar’s face and eyes.

OUR VIEW

Conservatism creep evident In Greater Victoria, we can take for granted our ability to live in relative safety and security, to move and act freely, as long as we don’t harm others or someone else’s property. With the discreditable conduct decision against Victoria police Chief Jamie Graham for an offhand comment he made at an Olympic security conference to be reviewed, it has us reconsidering just how free we are. Whether there was, as Graham claimed, an undercover Victoria police officer driving a bus filled with protesters to Olympic torch relay events in Vancouver is almost beside the point. Graham made the comment at an event focused on security for a major international event, presumably a venue where serious strategies for dealing with breaches of security were being tossed around. At best, such a comment could be considered a show of braggadocio among police officers. At worst, it indicates a belief that it’s acceptable for police to infiltrate the ranks of people planning or travelling to an otherwise legal and peaceful protest. Were there individuals on this bus who were known to police and considered a threat to engage in illegal or unsafe activities related to the torch relay? We don’t know, since the police haven’t told us. Even if there were, inserting a spy in the midst of a group of predominantly law-abiding people is not cool. It’s not the democratic Canada we live in. Other methods could have sufficed, like following the bus and keeping an eye on suspect individuals. The discreditable conduct charge against Graham for making the comment out loud is moot here and has deflected attention away from the real issue. The more serious point — one which we would like to call conservatism creep — is that the police would even consider planting a spy in such an environment. It smacks of authorities thinking they are somehow above the public, not a part of the community. That is a scary thought, indeed. What do you think?

And then we hear of floods in Pakistan or Manitoba, forest fires raging in northern Alberta, and thinning sea ice in the Arctic, retreating glaciers and drought in rainforests. Reports about floods and droughts and sea ice and climate change get sandwiched between clips about scandals and celebrities, and so we view them as isolated events. An environmental perspective would consider the possibility that many of the events are connected to an underlying cause. Such a perspective would help us get to the root of problems rather than trying to stamp out brushfires without identifying the source of a conflagration. We tend to think of environmentalists as folks concerned about nature or an endangered species or threatened ecosystem. Environmentalists are accused of caring more for spotted owls or trees than people and jobs. That’s absurd. In seeing a world of interconnections, we understand that people are at the heart of a global ecocrisis and that genuine sustainability means also dealing with issues of hunger and poverty, of inequity and lack of justice, of terrorism, genocide and war, because as long as these issues confront humanity, sustainability will be a low priority. In our interconnected world, all of these issues are a part of the unsustainable path we are on. If we want to find solutions, we have to look at the big picture. www.davidsuzuki.org

BEEFS

BOUQUETS

I would like give bouquets to everyone who came out and made our Sidney Days celebrations the best ever. From the Community Dinner (thank you Sidney By The Sea Rotary) to the fireworks on Canada Day eve through to Canada Day itself was truly amazing. When I stepped out to sing O Canada at the start of the parade I was looking down a vast tunnel of people along Beacon Avenue it brought tears to my eyes. Special thanks to the members and volunteers of the Celebrations Society who work quietly in the background making everything happen. Special kudos to Ted Daly our parade marshall who never ceases to amaze me the way he puts the parade together. For 26 years Slegg Lumber have sponsored our now world-famous Build a Boat contest, we had so many laughs down on the waterfront, thank you Slegg Lumber and especially Wayne Ruffle. We live in a truly wonderful town that is full of truly wonderful people. To each and everyone of you,thank you. Kenny Podmore Proud town councillor and Town Crier I have been volunteering at our community garden on the corner of East Saanich Road and Wallace Drive for several years and it is gratifying to have people expressing their enjoyment of the flowers and shrubs. People walk, bike and run along the paths through the garden. I have a request. The weeding takes a lot of time and is never ending. If everyone who enjoys the garden would take the time to pull three weeds and put them in the compost box, it would

be very helpful for those of us who do it on a regular basis. If you are not sure what is a weed, grass and dandelions are a safe bet. Thank you in advance, Michelle Campbell A big bouquet and thank you to all that supported us with either a donation or coming out to cheer us on as we rode the Heart and Stroke Big Bike on Bevan and Beacon on June 24. For those who couldn’t donate, our most heartfelt thanks for cheering on our work. Curves Cyclers Heartfelt thanks to the person who found my magnifying glass which I mislaid while shopping at Safeway on June 6. You kindly left it at the customer service counter where I picked it up. I have a severe vision problem and it is so good to have my “eyes” back. Thank you so much, Eileen MacFarlane To the family who rescued me and escorted me home when I fell three weeks ago on a Thursday evening around 8 p.m. near Monk Office. I’m fine, with a few stitches. Thank you, Jeanne Guy Send your beefs or bouquets to us at 9843 Second Street, Sidney, fax: 250-656-5526 or email editor@peninsulanewsreview.com.

And kudos to teacher Charlene Rozen and the many others just like her who are teaching our kids important lessons in social responsibility. As Bayside students have shown, when kids get fired up about something they care about, whether it's animals or other kids facing difficult times, there’s simply no stopping them. Thank you for giving Bayside students the recognition they deserve and in doing so, encouraging other kids to get equally passionate about issues that concern them.

If the current bus changes to the Peninsula are not enough, the current plans of BC Transit is to end the #70 and #75 at Uptown once the LRT is built. Everyone commuting from the Peninsula will be expected to transfer to the LRT at Uptown. Further to the changes lately, the new #70 Express is, according to the BC Transit schedule, no faster than the #70 was before the dropped stops. Why make the change if the buses are no faster?

NEWS REVIEW

A unique fundraiser at Parkland secondary brought in $1,700 for the special needs class and took a ton of junk off the streets. Superior Metal Recycling set up a bin at the school and students encouraged neighbours to drop off recyclable metal objects. “The community really came together to rise $1,700,” said Kate Anthony, co-owner of the Central Saanich company. Old refrigerators, stoves, bicycles, barbecues and even vehicles were dropped off or picked up by the company, which split the profits with the school. “It’s a good way to create awareness of what can be recycled, said Anthony. “And it’s a good way for them to fundraise as well.” Anthony hopes to spread the word to others hoping to raise money by recycling and to work with the school again next year. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

When you exercise you are bringing in fresh oxygen into your lungs which then gets circulated throughout your body. Improving circulation helps to regulate your endocrine system which then recharges your kidney/adrenals or ‘batteries’. The point is to move your body for 40 minutes per day, not to become a professional athlete. Step 3, Nutrition: Just as you must stop for meditation and exercise it also important to stop and pay attention to your nutrition. Your food should be fresh and ideally cooked at home.

Modern life seems to progress forward at such a rapid rate that sometimes we forget to stop and smell the roses. Before we know it our health has spiraled out of control and everything and everyone in our lives are suffering. Why is it so important to take control now and slow down? In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it is believed that the ‘battery packs’ of our bodies are contained within our kidneys/adrenal system. Just as it is essential to recharge reusable batteries it is also important to recharge yourself. How can you take control? The following are three simple steps to start incorporating into

your life. Step 1, Meditation: There are many variations of meditation but the most important point about it is breath. A series of deep regulated breaths help to oxygenate your cells. Breathing in this way then allows your immune and endocrine system to work more effectively. When we are stressed we pant shallowly which prevents blood from circulating properly. Breathing deeply helps us to take stock of what is happening within our bodies before illness spirals out of control. By paying attention to our bodies we are then connecting our minds, bodies and spirits, the true meaning of meditation. Step 2, Exercise: The benefits

As the sun goes up, bring out the shades Sunglasses essential in protecting eyes against sun Lauren Coulter News staff

To protect against the sun on these hot July days, it becomes just as important to take care of your eyes as it does your skin. Sunglasses are more than just a very popular summertime fashion accessory, as they are necessary in shielding your eyes against the sun’s harmful rays. “You can equate (sunglasses) to suntan lotion, but for your eyes,” said Fima Korduner, optician at Sidney Eyeland Optical. Like suncreen, sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB radiation, which can cause damage over the long term. The level of sensitivity to UV rays varies with each person, and sensitivity can also be increased with certain types of medication. Most pairs of sunglasses nowadays have 100 per cent UV protection, even the cheap

plastic kind. The difference between those and higher priced designer pairs, Korduner said, is the difference in quality. A more expensive pair will have better quality lenses that don’t distort the wearer’s view. The most recommended type of sunglasses are ones with brown or amber lenses, which eliminates “blue light.” Blue light is highly visible light that causes macular degeneration, a break down of the important back part of the retina which takes in light and translates that to the brain. Other options include sunglasses with polarized lenses, or “filter lenses.” Although they can be more expensive, polarized lenses filter out other reflected light from shiny surfaces, such as water or snow. Korduner strongly recommends them for boaters, or for driving long distances on hot days. Transition lenses, lenses that go darker based on the light, are

Sunglasses make the sun safer for everyone. very popular for budget reasons. But, Korduner points out that they are not “true sunglasses,” as they don’t go as dark as regular shades. Korduner also reminds parents that eye protection is just

as important for children as it is for adults. As it is difficult to keep sunglasses on a baby, however, he said a large brimmed hat will do the trick. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Has my vision changed? How frequently should one “change ones glasses?” There is no hard and fast answer to this question. Certain people are able to keep the same prescription for two or three years, sometimes longer, while others require more frequent changes. Nearsighted children and adults between age forty and sixty, usually fall into the latter category, often requiring new prescriptions annually for several years. Typically, most adults will require lenses for reading and near work, when they reach their early forties. If distance vision is good without glasses, “readers” are often all that is necessary; but if distance correction is needed, bifocals or progressive lenses are most commonly prescribed. The reading prescription usually changes about every one to two years until age sixty or so. After sixty, barring eye health problems such as cataracts, the vision is usually very stable, and only minor changes are required. The best way to monitor these changes is to have routine eye examinations. Not only do these timely visits ensure the eyes are healthy, they are the most effective way to ensure a person is seeing as well as he or she should.
