Co-op signs with Tsartlip Local First Nation community welcomes grocery store development Laura Lavin News Staff

The Peninsula Co-op has opened up its options. The Co-op announced Thursday (July 21) it had come to an agreement with the Tsartlip First Nation to lease more than five acres of land at the corner of Gowdy Road and Stelly’s X Road in Central Saanich to build “I feel we’ve a grocery store, gas bar and retail centre. achieved what “Our community has looked forward to havthe community ing an economic venture asked for.” there for many years,” - Wayne Morris said Tsartlip Chief Wayne Morris. “We canvassed our people and checked to find out what they want. What we asked for is exactly what we’ve agreed to (with the Co-op), a food store and gas bar. I feel we’ve achieved what the community asked for.” Morris said the Tsartlip First Nation community has been working on a development project for more than two years. The interim agreement signed between the Peninsula Co-op board and the Tsartlip will have to be ratified by a referendum at Tsartlip that should be held in early October. “The agreement allows us to fulfill the commitment made to all of our members that we will make every effort to locate our new food market and head office in Central Saanich where we began 35 years ago and have a substantial customer and employment base.” said Ron Gaudet, president of the Co-op’s board of directors. The Co-op has been working with the District of Central Saanich to build its new store on West Saanich Road near Keating X Road. Because that land is outside of the district’s urban containment boundary, the application must go to the PLEASE SEE: Plan vital to Tsartlip future, Page A3

BC Aviation Museum flying along Devon MacKenzie News staff

Almost a year after it opened its newest hangar, the BC Aviation Museum (BCAM) is flying along on one of its biggest projects ever — the restoration of the Trans Canada Airlines Vickers-Armstrong Viscount 757. The BCAM, which has been in operation now for more than 20 years, came to own the Viscount after it was able to purchase it from the BC Institute of Technology in 2005. It was brought over on a barge from Vancouver and placed at the museum until work could begin to restore it. In 2007, work began on the exterior components of the aircraft which will eventually be restored to how it was when it was in service as a passenger

Capital Regional District Board for approval. “We have been very concerned with the way things were going (with the application) and the determination of those who are opposed to it,” said Co-op board chair of planning, Gordon Denford. He said the board believed it would have to move the store and Co-op headquarters out of the area entirely. “We were prepared to go to the Western Communities, but the board was not happy about it, I was not happy about it. Then the opportunity arose to join the Tsartlip and to negotiate an agreement to build a new store along with auxiliary rental units and a gas bar — it’s quite a substantial investment,” he said. “To us it’s not only financially good, but it means we are moving forward, benefiting our community by way of employment and having a service station there. Not only for ourselves, but for the whole community of Central Saanich,” said Morris. “Because Co-op is so big, with so many members it will be a benefit to everybody.’ The Co-op will continue with its application for development on West Saanich Road until the Tsartlip referendum is held. “If the referendum passes, that’s where we’ll build the store and gas bar,” said Denford. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Alycia Coulter, couldn’t be more excited about what the next year will bring. Coulter, 18, who lives in North Saanich and graduated from St. Margaret’s school this year, began considering a career in politics when she was in Grade 10. “I attended the Forum for Young Canadians in Ottawa in April 2009 and I knew then I wanted to be a part of the political world,” said Coulter of her aspirations. With her experiences at the Forum for Young Canadians in mind, she decided to apply for the House of Commons Page Program in Grade 12. The page program has been a fixture in the Canadian Parliament for more than a century. The program selects 40 young adults from hundreds of applicants all over the country every year. The selected candidates get first-hand experience at being in the senate during meetings and assisting in duties such as the distribution of documents and passing of messages between members. In between her duties at school as Head Girl, her leadership for the basketball and volleyball teams of St. Margaret’s, her extracurricular softball participation, volunteering with Queen Alexandra Youth Advisory Committee, and a part time job as a bank teller, Coulter began the page program applica-

In mid-February I was contacted by phone for the second language quota, that was the part I was most nervous for,” she explained. “My only experiences in the French language come from my French courses in school which wasn’t French immersion. “Most candidates selected for the page program are either bilingual because they grew up in a place where French was spoken regularly or because they attended

French immersion. I didn’t do either, so it was a big challenge for me to get my French to that point,” she said. Coulter credits her French teachers at St. Margaret’s for her success in being chosen as a page. “I couldn’t have done it without them. All the hours they spent with me after school and on the phone walking me through interview scenarios — they were so supportive. I never thought I would be able to do it, but with their encouragement I did.” On May 11 Coulter got the call

from Ottawa. “I saw the caller ID said Ontario and I knew right away, I was so excited,” she said. At the end of August, Coulter will travel to Ottawa and get settled in at Carleton University. She will be studying Public Affairs and Policy Management and says she is excited about this year in the House of Commons. “With the election being so recent, it will be a very exciting and interesting year in Parliament — I’m really looking forward to it.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Sidney loses long time supporter Laura Lavin News staff

The man known as ‘Mr. Sidney’, Donald William Trivett died July 17, just two weeks after he was honoured by the little town he loved. Born Aug. 21, 1929 in Calgary, Alberta, Don and his wife Doreen retired to Sidney, after selling a successful stationery store in Victoria. He became a tireless volunteer, giving his time to many local causes for more than 40 years. Trivett’s dedication to the wellbeing of the citizens of Sidney began when he took over the ailing Sidney Festival Society, reorganized it and changed its name to the Peninsula Celebrations Society. Under his energetic and dedicated direction the community and the Celebrations Society were once again able to take pride in the renewed enthusiasm with which the community celebrates events. Trivett was the chair of the Celebrations Society for 10 years in the 1980s and 90s and was a big supporter of the Sidney Days festivities. “One of the most time-consuming and satisfying things I’ve done was help with the resurrection of Sidney Days,” said Trivett in a 1999 interview with the PEN-

Don Trivett died July 17.

NEWS REVIEW. Trivett, in his work with Peninsula Celebrations, was actively involved in other events such as the 1988 Olympic Torch ceremony, Miss Sidney Pageant, 100th Birthday Celebrations in 1991, the MacKenzie Artificial Reef Project, Saltwater Festival and the International Town Crier’s Competitions. Trivett was a big part of establishing the Sidney Lions Food Bank in 1980 and helped start the annual Santa Claus parade in 1994. In addition to his volunteer work with the Peninsula Celebrations Society, Trivett was a supporter of the Memorial Park Society. He served as a director until 2002.

INSULA

In the mid 1990s, Trivett was integral in the pre-planning of the Sanscha Community Cultural Centre Foundation (SCCCF), the foundation formed to raise funding and oversee construction of a new community and cultural centre, and in 1996 was a founding member of the SCCCF. Trivett was a key player in the building of the new Mary Winspear Community Cultural Centre and fundraised the first dollars. For his outstanding community support and making the community a better place to live, Trivett was awarded the Mayor’s Community Builder Award by the Town of Sidney on June 30. The award honours and recognizes his outstanding, long-term initiative and leadership in the development of Sidney. A commemorative plaque outlining his achievements was placed in the garden area surrounding the Beacon Park Pavilion. Trivett leaves behind Doreen his wife of 58 years, his daughter Debra with children; Jessica and James, and son David with his daughter Sarah. A celebration of his life will be held at the Mary Winspear Center in Sidney on Sunday, Aug. 21, at 2 p.m. - with News Review files editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

OUR VIEW

District’s loss is Tsartlip’s gain To use an antiquated idiom, the Peninsula Co-op has shown the District of Central Saanich and the CRD that there is indeed, more than one way to skin a cat. Thinking outside municipal boundaries the Co-op should be able to achieve its goal of keeping its grocery store/headquarters within the same geographic area, while at the same time, Bureaucracy forced avoiding the district’s restrictive Co-op to look in urban containment boundary. another direction By coming to an agreement with the Tsartlip First Nation, whose land is governed by themselves along with the federal government, the Co-op will be able to build its development — and more — on Tsartlip land in Brentwood Bay. The location is not as ideal for shoppers as its proposed West Saanich Road property, or even it’s current location on Keating X Road. It will locate the new store within a few kilometres of two existing grocery stores in the area, leaving residents of the northeast corner of the community to travel, most likely, to Saanich for their groceries. While the economic benefits to the Tsartlip people are undeniable, those tax dollars could have easily been in Central Saanich’s pocket, had bureaucracy not been in the way. The district, and therefore its taxpayers, may also be on the hook for improvements to Stelly’s X Road and other infrastructure leading up to the development — an added cost to the municipality without the benefit of additional revenue from tax dollars. And what will become of the Co-op’s land on West Saanich Road? It has never been seriously used as farm land to grow crops and could potentially be sold or developed in another way. While bureaucracy has favoured the Tsartlip First Nation in this instance, it may well be a wake-up call to all municipalities who are also home to First Nation communities to cut the red tape.

is relatively easy to make with precision. Job growth does depend, however, on a competitive tax environment, with competition from Ontario and elsewhere. The public accounts also confirm what we found out last fall, that HST revenues have run ahead of expectations. HST haters like to claim the tax was promised to be revenue neutral. That finance ministry estimate was only for the first year, and it proved pessimistic. As with gasoline prices, external forces drown out B.C. tax adjustments in the short term. Currently it looks as if going back to the old provincial sales tax will cost the treasury about $600 million in revenue in each of the next few years. HST rate cuts are made up by economic growth. Or we can return to a 60-yearold retail sales tax developed for a post-war, pre-service economy, and continue a B.C. political debate that revolves around 30-year-old socialist ideology. The deficit will immediately jump back up to the 10-digit range. So if your HST referendum envelope is still in the bottom of your recycling bin, you might consider fishing it out and casting a No vote. They have to be delivered to Elections BC by Aug. 5.

LETTERS Two-tier health system Re: Tsartlip Dig For Health (PNR July 13). So, after much bickering and arguing, it turns out we all ready have two-tier health care in this country? One for aboriginals and one for everyone else. Both of which are paid for by everyone else. Couldn’t the Tsartlip people, and other aboriginals in the area, just use the newly completed, multi-million dollar private health care centre on the Tsawout reserve? John MacIntyre, Central Saanich

Destroying democracy I wonder, do we really live in a democracy? Teachers demands for a new contract show they think they are a little better than the rest of us, and you can’t get rid of the bad ones. The police seem to be able to do anything they want and nothing will happen to them, BC Ferries, hydro, municipalities and others think we are a bottomless pit of money they can take from and there is nothing we can do about it. Some day, soon I hope, people are going to have had enough. They aren’t going to put up with this anymore. What they will do I’m not sure. I just know we are drifting towards a situation where people won’t care about anything but themselves and trying to survive. This is a democracy? Vick Henderson, Central Saanich

HST signs misleading The Pat Bay highway southbound between Haliburton and Royal Oak Avenue has sprung some signs concerning the HST referendum which smacks of BC Liberal obfuscation. There are a series of them which say: Keep our 1.6 billion: Keep our nurses, Keep our doctors, Keep our teachers, Keep our police, Keep our judges, and Considering the HST benefits. Well the inference here is that without the HST there will be no nurses, doctors, teachers, judges or police. (There was a sign about larger class sizes now gone — so class sizes would be huge.) Quite apart from the misleading suggestions, I would challenge the author and installer of these signs to tell us all exactly how many new nurses, doctors, teachers, police and judges have been granted to us since the HST came into being. I am sure we would all like to know and more particularly where are they now? Jeremy Arney, Central Saanich

North Saanich council critique not warranted It is laudable when an individual makes a charitable donation to a cause of his choice, as did Craig Mearns with his donation towards a playground for the North Saanich middle school (Private donation pushes playground ahead PNR June 29). However, it is disappointing that councillor Mearns used the event as an opportunity to publicly criticize North Saanich council in respect of a decision which he supported. Each year, North Saanich council receives numerous requests for grants in aid from local organizations to support worthy causes in the community. It is established practice that applications need to be received by Jan. 31 each year. Unfortunately the request in regard to the playground was not received until April 28 and therefore could not be considered for this year, since all of the funding for grants in aid had already been allotted. Further councillor Mearns is quoted as saying “After turning down the application from the school [council] passed one from the CRD …”. This was not a grant in aid application, nor was it made to the CRD. What he is alluding to is a separate matter, a donation to the Regional Housing Trust Fund. North Saanich is one of 11 regional municipalities regularly contributing to the fund which has been extremely successful, through partnering with senior levels of government, in providing affordable housing in the Capital Region. Since 2005, 361 housing units have been provided, housing more than 120 families and more than 235 individuals. Finally, the article states Craig Mearns sees his donation as a little bit of a payback. Regardless of his motivation, by not accurately and completely stating the background facts councillor Mearns casts his council in an unfavourable light which is both unjustified and inappropriate. Alice Finall, Mayor, North Saanich

PST/GST versus HST I have been taught to think it out and do it right the first time. Let me say first that I am glad that the HST was proposed as a ‘combined’ tax. It simplifies accounting procedures, reduces administrative burden and greatly trims price distortions in the marketplace. It makes sense. What upsets me immensely is the way the provincial government introduced this taxation and what assessed components of consumerism were included in the HST tax. In fact I would not be surprised if the people of B.C. Vote down the HST based solely on the representational process of this tax. I do stand corrected that the HST does not apply to basic food items such as bread and milk, or to prescription drugs. However the fact remains that it has become a major contentious issue in competitive small business practises because of what this tax does include. Another serious problem lies in the fact that this government thought it could appease the public by lowering the overall tax — possibly within three years, and not really face the realworld problems people are discovering today in accumulative daily net income loss. The pity is that if the HST referendum is turned down, the government in its mistaken approach again, will apparently be changing back to the PST and GST taxation system instead of making the necessary changes to the HST to allow it work work properly for the all citizens of this province. If I had one wish to be granted it would be that this government not play politics with our tax system and make the real and essential changes to enhance our economy over the long haul.

Cadet leads survival training Kathryn Pratt is spending her summer leading youth in basic survival. Lieut. Pratt, 22, is a Reserve member in the Cadet Instructors Cadre (CIC) branch of the Canadian Forces and routinely works with the local 676 Kittyhawk air cadet squadron. This summer sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working at the training centre at Albert Head Air Cadet Summer Training Centre in Metchosin as a Flight Commander for the Basic Survival Course. There she will lead air cadets learning about surviving in the field, ground search and rescue techniques, and ground navigation skills. Pratt, a University of Victoria student, has been a member of the CIC for three years and was an air cadet for six years. On July 13 Lt.-Col. Richard Mudryk, commanding officer at Albert Head, presented Pratt with her commissioning scroll, a certificate that officially declares her an officer in the Canadian Forces. The cadet program is designed to contribute to the development and preparation of youth for the transition to adulthood, enabling them to meet the challenges of modern society through a dynamic, community-based program. Canadian Forces Reserve Cadet Instructors Cadre Officers are responsible for cadet training, supervision and administration. The vast majority serve the Canadian Forces on a parttime basis while continuing full-time studies or pursuing a civilian career. The CIC celebrated 100 years of service to Canada in 2009.

Many of us start out with a condo, progress to a townhouse, then a first house, followed by a larger one, then again move to a small house or strata property upon retirement. Despite these natural pressures however, we can rationally consider and plan relocations which are truly beneficial and cost-effective as we move through the various life-stages. An impulse move, simply out of boredom, may be better solved with a nice $5,000 vacation in Hawaii, rather than an unnecessary $50,000 relocation cost. Average Victorians moving into their first home can expect to own at least five more homes in their lifetime. That’s 10 more buying and selling transactions — an aggregate of over $6 million in property values. If prudently avoided, just one less buy-and-sell during our lifetime can make a significant difference to our ultimate net worth — and more trips to Hawaii.

The Pacific Cycling Centre athlete was among those in the 103 kilometre race on the outskirts of Burlington, Ontario. It consisted of eight laps with some challenging climbs including a steep finishing climb up the Niagara Escarpment. Willock’s strength is hills and each of her climbs challenged the pelaton. The lead pack wasn’t decided until the last climb when Veronique Fortin sprinted to the finish. Willock was just edged from second place by Lex Albrecht. sports@peninsulanewsreview.com

Don’t bonk

Pacific Cycling Centre athlete Annie Ewart put in a gold medal performance at the Junior Nationals in Ontario, coming away with two golds and one silver medal. “It went according to plan I guess,” Ewart said, in a phone interview. The Central Saanich teen took on the nation during the Canadian Junior/Master/Paracycling Road Championships June 30 to July 3. Ewart won the Junior Women’s 16.7km time trial title in 24:08. “It’s what I’ve been focussing on this year,” she said. “It was hard … it’s the ultimate race, it’s just you against the clock.” The following day she placed second in the Criterium, although she was also in the running for a first place finish, being beaten at the line by Allison Beveridge. “We did it on the Indy F1 track in Toronto … at the CNE. It was pretty neat,” she said. “I was happy with silver, a good friend won, she definitely deserved the

win.” On July 3 she took her second gold in the 68-kilometre road race. She was riding in the pelaton with three laps to go when she made a break with three other riders. She won it on the last lap in 2:02:09 ahead of Beveridge and Alizée Brien. “It was brutally hot, 32, 33 degrees and that’s without the humidity,” Ewart said. “I don’t mind the heat, you’ve just got to make sure you’re drinking constantly otherwise it’s pretty easy to bonk. I was really focussing on drinking at least every five minutes.” In the last quarter lap she gave up on the water and just went

for the win. “It was just head down and hammer to the finish line,” Ewart said. After the races, Ewart was among the 16 athletes chosen for a post-nationals week-long training camp. “It was great … we never see each other. It was really good to get to know everyone,” Ewart said. “It’ll be a lot easier and a lot better when we go to worlds or youth Commonwealth games to race with them.” Ewart hopes to represent Canada at the Junior World Championships in October. “Annie is one of those athletes that knows what she wants and knows what works,” said coach Houshang Amiri of Victoria’s Pacific Cycling Centre. “Despite her very young age she is doing everything according to the plan on the bike and off the bike … Her performance at the Nationals is the result of commitment, dedication, work ethic, family support and confidence in herself.” reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Cougars’ camp opens Aug. 15 and Nathan ChenMack, Kyle Richter, and Trevor Chown should be there. Coach Mark Van Helvoirt still has a lot of spots to fill but is happy with the recent additions. Both Chen-Mack and Richter are 17-year-olds coming off a season with the South Island Thunderbirds of B.C.’s Major Midget League. Van Helvoirt calls Chen-Mack, a five-foot-10, 180-pound forward, a wellrounded, hard working player. He accumulated 11 goals and 12 assists in 43 games. Richter is also five-foot-10, but with a little room to fill out at just 150 pounds. Richter was a point-per-game player with 18 goals for 41 points in 41 games with the T-Birds last season. Chown is a five-foot-11, 175-pound, defenceman from Calgary’s midget-AAA league. He scored 25 points in 40 games last year and is described by Van Helvoirt as an all-around defenceman who should play a key role on the special teams.

Vision Matters Dr. Paul Neumann

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Self treatment of tired eyes If your eyes get tired or inflamed occasionally, taking eye drops to make them feel better may actually increase the risk of future problems. Your eyes are very precious and delicate. They should never be treated without the advice of your eye care professional. Valuable time may be lost in detecting vision problems if you decide to treat tired or inflamed eyes yourself. It could be that the eye drops feel soothing or you believe washing out your eyes with a home remedy is all you need to relieve a minor eye problem. True, not all inflamed eyes are a sign of something serious, and perhaps the condition will soon alleviate itself. However, any persistent eye problem, even a minor one, should have professional care, as it could be a symptom of something more serious. You should have your eyes examined regularly, even if you’ve never had a problem in seeing clearly. You should have them examined to ensure they remain healthy and function properly.

Japan’s past disasters spring to life through prints Sam Van Schie News staff

When an earthquake and tsunami turned Japan’s northeast coast into a swampy wasteland earlier this year, photos were only an Internet search away. But when three similar disasters struck the island nation between the mid-1800s and early-1900s, before the days of film cameras, the Japanese government had to rely on more creative means to show the devastation. Artists would be commissioned to design posters to depict the carnage that resulted from the ocean’s pounding. Their images would be mass produced using a woodblock printing method that involved carving wood stamps for each colour and handpressing the layers onto the poster, one at a time. “It was a very labour-intensive process,” explained Barry Till, curator of Asian art at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, where dozens of these disaster prints are on display. The posters look something like watercolour paintings and they would be distributed throughout the country. People would collect them to hang in their home, though the subject matter was rather grim. One print included in the exhibit shows a naked woman in a wooden bathtub riding atop a wave filled with bodies, as a man clings to a pole trying to rescue someone from the water. A volcano explodes in the background. “The woman survived — the wave dropped her and her bathtub on a hilltop,” Till said, explaining that the

Curator of Asian art Barry Till points to a woman in a wooden bathtub that was ripped out of her home by the force of a tsunami wave. Woodblock prints from the 1800s and early-1900s are on display at the Greater Victoria Art Gallery until Sept. 5. prints were based on true events. “Each one is a little history lesson.” Other posters show people jumping from a wooden bridge as it burns or a train derailed by the shifting earth. All depict many casualties. “This is how the government recruited people to help rebuild the cities or to donate money for relief,” Till said. While the exhibit, which opened in June, was timely because of the March earthquake in Japan — the gallery scheduled it long before that tragedy — there’s more than just disaster prints on display. Japan also produced numerous propaganda posters using the wood-

block method during the 1894 war against China and the 1904 war with Russia, to help recruit soldiers and build national pride. Unlike the disaster prints, the war posters rarely showed death or injury and when they did, it was usually an enemy down. “They glorify the Japanese soldiers as heroes,” Till said. Before the two wars, the Japanese military had received training in Europe. The posters show the Japanese wearing Western-style uniforms and

using more advanced artillery than the opposing soldiers. “Some of the posters are quite racist, and we’re expecting some people will be offended by them,” Till said. “We include the controversial prints because they were part of the art of the time.” The exhibit, War and Disaster in Japanese Prints, continues at the Greater Victoria Art Gallery until Sept. 5.

Got a Question?

RIGHT OR WRONG? Q & A With Rosalind

Uncommon sense for marketplace decisions with Rosalind Scott, Executive Director, BBB If you have a question or experience that you would like to share with Rosalind Scott please email rosalindscott@vi.bbb.org.

Q: Dear BBB, This morning I received a threatening phone call from a man that claimed I had a court action filed against me. He gave me a legitimate sounding file number for the court action as proof. The man claimed that the matter was in regards to a loan of $4000 in my name that I had not paid. He told me, in a rather aggressive tone, that I would be arrested if I did not pay the loan promptly as per the court action. He then proceeded to make a claim that for $250 and my Social Insurance Number, that they could stop the warrant for my arrest. The caller was so threatening and aggressive, I was unnerved, but I was pretty sure that this was a scam of some sort, so I just hung up the phone. Is this a scam? Has anyone else reported something like this? Is there something I should be doing to ensure that there isn’t a court action against me? ~ Frightened Friend A: Frightened Friend, You were RIGHT to assume this caller was a scam artist and to hang up the phone. If you legitimately had a court action filed against you in regards to an unpaid loan, you would likely have been informed, prior to this phone call, about the matter. They key red flags that this is a scam include the aggressive approach of the caller, the threat that a warrant for your arrest could be stopped with a payment, and the request for your Social Insurance Number. If you are concerned for some reason that there is an unpaid loan out there in your name, it would be wise to check your credit report (with Equifax or TransUnion) to see if there are any unknown loans on your file. I doubt you will find anything suspicious. It is probably more likely that this fraudster was hoping to bully you into giving out personal information for the purposes of identity theft or financial fraud. We have not received other reports locally about this matter, but I am sure the scammer is randomly targeting phone numbers (possibly world wide) in hopes that someone will fall for his threats. Besides informing the BBB it would also be wise for you to inform your local police and to contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (1 (888) 495-8501) to report this.

Teen actors tackle opera Charla Huber News staff

Teenagers with larger-than-life voices will soon be belting out stellar notes. About 15 talented singers have signed on to the St. Michaels University School summer voice academy and will perform a youth opera in Victoria next week. The cast includes youth from across B.C. and Alberta ranging from Grade 8 through 12. “Most of them are very accomplished singers,” said Dawn Wilson, director of education extension and international programs at SMUS. In applying for the program, students submitted audio recordings of themselves performing several pieces of music. “They were selected based on their musical ability and singing quality,” Wilson said. While this is the first time the youth opera program has been offered at the school, it’s the third year for the academy of voice. “This is quite unique (to be)

April, Braico sang The Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera. Once of the judges was Joanne Hounsell. She was moved to tears listening him sing and ultimately offered him a scholarship to the SMUS youth opera program. “I thought he had a beautiful, natural talent,” said Hounsell, artistic director at SMUS. “I want to encourage kids who have career voices, but they need to get a foundation.” At first he was wary of joining a group of teens who have studied the craft for years, but eventually he was persuaded to join the group. “This is a great experience and a lot of good training,” he said. Pandora’s Locker performances are July 29 at 7:30 p.m. and July 30 at 2:30 p.m. at the Philip T. Young Recital Hall at the University of Victoria. Tickets are $20.50 for adults and $17.50 for students and seniors, available at the McPherson Box Office (250-386-6121) or online at www.rmts.bc.ca. reporter@goldstreamgazette.com

learning about this genre,” she said. Students are learning and rehearsing Pandora’s Locker, an opera sung in English and based on the Greek myth, Pandora’s Box. The story is set in a high school, making it easier for the singers to relate to it, Wilson added. Surrey resident Dylan Braico, 18, is one of two male students in the group, but is the only male boarding at the school during the program. “I am not going to lie, it’s nice being the only guy,” he said, adding that he’s still a bit intimidated approaching a large group of girls. Braico has performed on stage most of his life, starting with his debut as the lead in The Muffin Man at age six. He has a vocal coach and enjoys singing jazz and anything by Frank Sinatra. Even with that level of experience he has never studied opera, or thought about it much. But everything changed at a recent competition. At the Fraser Valley Music Festival in
