Cops for cancer crusader Devon MacKenzie News staff

Kynan Smith was inspired to start fundraising by watching the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock last year. A friend of his raised a bit of money for the cause and Kynan thought he could help out too. “He just came home one day and asked me if I would help him,” said Jolene Hook, in reference to her son’s wishes to begin fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. Kynan, who turns eight this month, began his crusade to fundraise for Cops for Cancer this spring. By the end of June, he had already raised a respectable $800 — almost halfway toward his goal of $2000. “I first started thinking I wanted to raise $1,000 but then I decided I could do

better than that and I changed my goal to Locks of Love, an organization that produces wigs for children who have to $2,000,” explained Kynan excitedly.

Three months in, there aren’t any official numbers on the new trio of roundabouts that make up the McTavish interchange, but emergency services professionals are confident in what they’ve seen so far. “We’ve had a few minor crashes reported in the roundabouts — nothing with serious injuries,” “The said Cpl.

Over the same timeframe last year, officers were called three times to accidents at the McTavish Road and Pat Bay Highway lighted intersection. In 2008 and 2009, before construction began, RCMP were called to the intersection five times between April 9 and June 30 each year. “When the lights were there, we had a lot of rear end collisions when the traffic got congested there,” Swain said. “Those obviously don’t occur anymore.” He expects that as people become more accustomed to using the traffic circles the minor incidents will decrease as well. “You need to be aware of the other users of the road and yield to them as you enter the roundabout,” Swain said. “If you miss your turn go around once and take the scenic route.” The North Saanich Volunteer Fire Department has responded to two “fender benders” on the Lochside Road roundabout on the exit off the PLEASE SEE: Crash rate lower, Page A5

Crowds awaited the opening to see what six months of renovations created at the corner of Wallace Drive and West Saanich Road as Fairway Market officially opened in Brentwood Bay. “I’d like to thank the Yuens for bringing the Fairway Market into Central Saanich. What a beautiful store,” said Jack Mar, mayor of Central Saanich. “They spent a lot of time and they renovated the store. The old store was worn out and a little tired. If you look at it from the outside as a new customer you’d think it was a brand new store.” Fairway founder Don Yuen cut the ribbon alongside Mar to officially open the 10th store in the local grocery chain. Fairway boasts more than 700 employees. “They’ve actually increased the staff. I understand there’s going to be

about 55 employees, so that’s going to bring a lot of jobs and good economic development to Central Saanich,” Mar added. Since opening the first store in 1963, Fairway Market has grown to become one of Vancouver Island’s largest independently owned grocery stores. “Fairway has been in business in Greater Victoria for over 45 years and in the Peninsula for over three years. We are very excited to open another store here in the Peninsula,” said Robert Jay, spokesman for Fairway Market. “We look forward to bringing our great selection of authentic specialty items from countries such as Britain, Japan, Mexico, Denmark and China as well as your normal everyday items.” Over the next few months the store will implement new programs, starting with its current contest to win groceries for a year. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Ferguson flies into fame Devon MacKenzie News Staff

Long-time Peninsula resident and rookie pilot, Graeme Ferguson, has been catapulted into the world of reality television. Ferguson, a Stelly’s graduate, began his flying career shortly after high school. “My parents booked me a discovery flight package out of the Victoria Flying Club and I remember going up with the pilot in the afternoon. We flew around for a while and he let me the controls, and “There were lights take after that I was totally everywhere and the hooked,” said Ferguson of his first flight expecamera people were rience. “I signed up for all over the place, the private pilot course that same night,” he it was definitely a said with a laugh. surprise.” After he completed his private pilot’s licence, - Graeme Ferguson Ferguson moved on to his goal of conquering his commercial pilot licensing. In the spring of 2009, Ferguson was finally ready to start looking for full time work in the industry. “I had a friend who knew of some openings up north, so we went up and started working as rampies,” said Ferguson. “I took a job in Hay River and he took a job in Yellowknife.” Soon, Ferguson was working as a rampie, an airline employee who loads and unloads airplanes parked on the airport ramp, full time for Buffalo Air, the company which is featured in the History Channel’s hit show Ice Pilots NWT. “I remember when I started they kind of told me that they were going to be doing some filming for a show — I didn’t really know what it was all about and I didn’t really think too much of it and then I got there,” said Ferguson. “There were lights everywhere and the camera people were all over the place, it was definitely a surprise.” The show, produced by Omni television productions, airs regularly on the History Channel. It has been airing for two seasons and is one of the channel’s most popular shows. Ferguson explained what it was like to be a part of the experience of reality television. “It’s pretty amazing to see how they put these shows together. The camera people are always

They film so many hours of our day-to-day activity and really only a small portion ends up actually airing, it’s kind of bizarre.” Ferguson, who will be 26 this year, moved from being a rampie to a rookie pilot after an exciting introduction to the flying world from the company’s founder, “Buffalo” Joe McBryan. He plans to stay with Buffalo for the foreseeable future. “I’m just enjoying it all while it lasts,” he said. “It’s definitely been a crazy ride and you never really know what’s going to happen from one day to the next.” Ferguson is spending the summer months based out of Hay River, NWT fighting forest fires. “I’ve already been out there fighting fires this season on the DC-4 (a Second World War aircraft) and I’m sure there will be plenty more to come,” he said. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

The province won't rip up the deal that promises BC Ferries CEO David Hahn a $315,000-a-year pension even though Premier Christy Clark has condemned it as far too rich. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom said Wednesday he was not previously aware of the arrangement but breaking it would be very costly. “I’m not prepared to stand up and break a contract,� Lekstrom said, adding a “contract is a contract� whether it involves unionized labour or a high-profile CEO. The comment was a reference to when Lekstrom stood on principle and voted against the BC Liberal government’s 2002 decision to tear up health sector contracts to privatize hospital support staff — a move ultimately overturned by the Supreme Court of Canada, which ordered the province to pay compensa-

Clark had called Hahn’s pension “way, way too big.� But BC Ferries board chair

Donald Hayes said the legislature confirmed the pay and pension provisions in 2010 when the government amended the Coastal Ferry Act. Hayes said in a statement that the compensation package for Hahn was negotiated in 2006 at private sector rates in part to retain him in light of possible competing offers from other large private-sector firms. Hahn’s base salary of $500,000 is topped up with a bonus and other benefits, pushing his annual pay to more than $1 million for 2011.

CRD decision gains local support TwoNReasons ook ot tothisCSummer! Laura Lavin News Staff

The community is fired up over a Capital Regional District Board decision to review several recent decisions made by Central Saanich council. “I’m speaking as a grandfather who hopes that my grandchildren have the same opportunities I’ve had to enjoy food security, the produce of good farms, and the ability to roam and wander in beautiful rural areas,” said North Saanich resident Jack Thornburgh. “(A) key responsibility of a municipal elected official is to uphold, protect, and defend the democratically-legislated bylaws, mandates, and regulatory processes of my municipality and region — until such time as these bylaws and regulations are duly amended through public consultation and full democratic process.” Others echoed Thornburgh’s sentiments. “In the past three years, citizens of Central Saanich have spent thousands of hours of volunteer time, and to date $95,404 of donated funds to take the mayor and council of Central Saanich to task for approving these developments, which are not in the public interest,” said Central Saanich resident Lori Waters. Waters is part of the Mount Newton Neighbourhood Association which was successful in its court challenge against Central Saanich in the Senanus waterline case. The district has since changed its approach, which has allowed

While some minor crashes likely go unreported to police or fire, ICBC doesn’t yet have claims statistics to compare between the lighted intersection and the new interchange, primarily because the changes are so recent, and people have years to submit a claim. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Moreover, the court greatly needs the assistance of a party that can inform them on the Regional Growth Strategy agreement, and of the importance of staying true to the spirit of these visions for the broader community and public good. The CRD board must not allow the test of the electorate versus a council be its sole test of the validity of the RGS,” said Waters. editor@peninsulanewsreview. com

OUR VIEW

Public ahead of politicians Count drinking and driving as another element of the 20th century’s car culture that’s been left behind in the 21st century. Earlier this week the province made the obvious decision to keep tough rules introduced 10 months ago that have worked to curb the carnage caused by intoxicated drivers. Tougher laws Across B.C., there more in line with have been 30 deaths in modern attitudes a seven-month period that averaged 61 fatalities in each of the previous five years. This is more than enough evidence to keep the laws as they are — there had been talk of easing the rules after bars and restaurants complained the laws were too harsh and hurt business. However, while this has been somewhat true, we’ve also witnessed an evolution in how people think about their drink. Whether switching from boozy beverages to mocktails or planning an alternative way to get home, the general public appears to have adapted to the new reality. Part of this can be attributed to fear of getting caught, but we’d like to think it also signals a sea change in society. Younger generations have grown up being told about the dangers of drunk driving and their education has rubbed off on older citizens. The days of glorifying gas guzzlers are long gone. City planners looking at ways to keep people out of vehicles rather than planning urban freeways. And driving and drinking, once far too common, is also a relic of an archaic time. Taxis, bus service and even courtesy rides from good Samaritan organizations are now readily available for people who want to go out for a drink and get home without driving. The message is clear: There are options to avoid hitting the road hammered. These tougher rules work and it’s time for all B.C. drivers to work with them. What do you think?

part because of the number of people that do it – up to 25 permits are handed out per day from each of the two trail heads – and because of all the hiking aids, including ladders and boardwalks. The trail has deluxe composting toilets, bear bins, cable cars, ferries and two restaurants. There’s cellphone service and rescuers in zodiacs to evacuate the injured. Still, seven days of hiking for six to ten hours per day can be described as nothing short of an endurance test. My group started on the easy end, closer to Bamfeild. We had three long, easy days hiking along beaches (including bare foot for a stretch), before hitting the infamous 100-rung ladder section and other challenging terrain closer to Port Renfrew. Counting down the final five kilometres, we couldn’t wait to see civilization again. I’d managed to pick up a nasty stomach virus on day three and one of my companions was hobbling from blisters-turnedgaping-open wounds. Even the healthy among us were exhausted and we’d become the ones asking passing hikers, how far to the trail head. Still, we finished the trail triumphant and, over a well deserved dinner at Canoe Club, agreed we’d definitely do it again. news@goldstreamgazette.com Sam Van Schie is a reporter for the Goldstream News Gazette.

Victoria Police Department constables Alvin Deo and Mike Massine, Oak Bay reserve constable Jarrod Christison and Cpl.

Christison, who is looking to raise $30,000, recalls when past riders stopped at his school. “Seeing them do the tour, I always looked up to that,” he said. “I also think it’s the ultimate form of volunteerism.” The 1,000-kilometre, 14-day journey from Port Alice to Victoria will be physically and emotionally demanding. The cyclists will meet children with cancer and people wanting to donate. Brigham is planning to shave her head during the ride to show solidarity with young cancer patients who have lost their hair through treatment. “It’s going to be emotional,” the military police officer said of the journey her team has been preparing for since March. “Regardless of all the training we’re doing, it doesn’t compare to what these (kids) are going through with their chemotherapy and recovering,” said Brigham, whose goal is to raise $5,000.

The 22-member Tour de Rock team is preparing to ride in support of pediatric cancer research and a summer camp for kids whose lives have been touched by the disease. Among those riding are Oak Bay reserve Const. Jarrod Christison, left, Victoria police constables Mike Massine and Alvin Deo, and CFB Esquimalt military police officer Cpl. Mary Brigham. “It’ll be a real mix of emotions,” said VicPD’s Massine of the upcoming ride. “I’m not above crying.” Massine’s desire to participate dates back to 1998 when he was a Saanich cop and his police colleague Const. Martin Pepper initiated the first Tour de Rock. Massine is also inspired by his 19-year-old stepdaughter who has a rare syndrome for which she requires constant care. “It’s opened my eyes to the needs parents have when they do have kids who are sick in one way or another,” said Massine, who hopes to fund raise $25,000. It was only natural for Deo to help kids

in need since, as a youth investigator, he spends most of his day doing just that. He is also a father to three young children. “I have kids of my own and just the thought of them suffering from cancer is pretty terrifying,” said Deo, who aspires to raise $15,000. “Realizing there are other families out there that are going through this right now, I just wanted to do whatever I could to help out.” Tour de Rock happens Sept. 24 to Oct. 7.

Indexbeating strategy

During financial consultations I am often asked by clients how they can invest in equities while still minimizing risk. I always preface my response by explaining that there is no equity investment strategy without some risk. However, I assure them there is an approach I have used successfully, which has never failed to beat the S&P/ TSX Index. That statement always gets their attention. What is this magical approach? Investing in a well-diversified ‘basket’ of companies with a consistent track record of not only paying dividends, but also of increasing them annually, greatly reduces an

investor’s market risk. Regular dividend payments reduce the negative impact of market corrections on a portfolio, while dramatically improving long-term returns. The proof? Consider the following comparative performances within the S&P/TSX Index over the challenging 10-year period ending December 31, 2009. The total Index produced an average annual return of 5.6 per cent. The non-dividend paying component of the Index averaged a 1.1 per cent annual return. The dividend-paying stocks within this Index produced an average 11.4 per cent annual return. GUTTER CLEANING • WINDOW CLEANING • POWER WASHING

NEWS REVIEW NEWS REVIEW

Those dividend-payers with a track record of annual increases in their dividends produced an average annual return of 13.5 per cent. These numbers assume that all dividends were reinvested as they were received. The clear conclusion from this is that dividends are an extremely important component of the total return achieved from Peter Dolezal equity investments. Financial Savvy Regardless of which historical decade one examines, this has always proven to be true. So how can an investor take advantage of this knowledge? Fortunately a number of Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) and Index Funds offer â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;basketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of dividend-paying, and even dividend-growing, companies. Many mutual funds offer similar investments, but with much higher investment and management costs which will usually erode some of the returns for the investor. All of these options are available for Canadian, U.S., and even some international markets. The risk-mitigating advantages of dividendpaying equities are clear. However, even these investments are exposed to periodic negative market movements. For that reason, every investor must first determine what proportion of his or her total portfolio to allot to equities versus fixed-income investments, such as GICs, bonds, preferred shares, or diversified funds holding such securities. I certainly sleep better knowing the equity portion of my portfolio is in ETFs comprised of more than 50 of the best dividend-paying companies on whichever index I choose, whether Canadian, U.S., or international. I know that even when markets fall, dividends cushion the decline of my portfolio. When markets rise, dividends enhance the gains. Although this strategy may not be risk-free, it represents for me the most prudent way to participate in equity markets, especially over a longer-term holding period. A retired corporate executive, enjoying postretirement as a financial consultant, Peter Dolezal is the author of three books. His most recent, The Smart Canadian Wealth-Builder, is now available at Tannerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Books, and in other bookstores.
