Campaign 2011 There’s no shortage of issues to think about for Central Saanich’s two mayoral candidates, who are vying to replace outgoing Mayor Jack Mar. Today we speak to Christopher Graham and Alastair Bryson Don Descoteau/News staff

Christopher Graham paddles to the dock at Van Isle Marina, where he operates a kayak rental business. The former fourterm councillor also operates a family farm on Senanus Drive.

Stories by Don Descoteau News staff

Growing up on council Christopher Graham, the one-time teenaged councillor who served 12 years on Central Saanich council and is taking his second run at the mayor’s chair, says he’s learned something from all three mayors he worked with. Wayne Hunter, Alison Habkirk and soon-to-be-retiring mayor, Jack Mar — whom Graham lost to in 2008 — each demonstrated characteristics that are useful in leading a municipality, he says. Hunter showed him the ability to place people in areas where they had strengths, Habkirk was a talented critical thinker and Mar an excellent listener. Now 33, Graham believes his own leadership style borrows from all three. “People like feeling empowered,” he says, noting that such a scenario helps move projects toward completion more

efficiently and effectively. Empowering residents with the feeling they are being heard is crucial for council to making decisions that are right for the community, he says. Graham gives as an example a council decision to remove the owner-occupancy clause from the secondary suite bylaw. He takes issue with council revisiting the clause, when more than 80 per cent of residents surveyed five or so years ago supported the owner-occupy rule. “When there’s no evidence that’s changed, that, to me is a form of topdown democracy. I believe in a bottom-up approach — enacting the community’s agenda rather than my own.” PLEASE SEE: Graham, Page A4

Central Saanich Councillor Alastair Bryson leans against the gate to his Mount Newton Valley farmland. Bryson is a farmer and veterinarian by trade.

Opportunity knocks Driving down a long, sloped pathway off Mount Newton X Road, one reaches the home of Alastair Bryson. The property, bounded to the west by Woodwynn Farm and to the south by Tsartlip First Nation land, sprawls across a chunk of the Mount Newton Valley. “Don’t worry about your shoes. As you can see, this is a farmhouse,” Bryson, the mayoral candidate, tells the visitor, who notes the unfinished wooden floors. The home is not showy or flashy, but appears perfectly functional. It should come as no surprise then, that this two-term Central Saanich councillor hasn’t been hitting the campaign trail hard, shaking hands and making appearances around the municipality. “The campaign is a bit of a flash at

best,” he says. “The question (for voters) is how have I represented them over the past six years? I trust the community to make the decision and decide who can make the most useful mayor.” Voters have many concerns, from the state of the district’s finances, to boosting a struggling Keating X Road industrial park, to accommodating and allowing for residential and commercial growth. In his time on council, Bryson, 52, has seen the district’s financial position continue to take a nosedive. Cutting into the current $13-million debt will take “careful financial management,” and increasing the district’s tax base through various types of development, he says. PLEASE SEE: Bryson, Page A4

PENINSULA PENINSULA NEWS NEWS REVIEW REVIEW -- Wednesday, Wednesday, November November 16, 16, 2011 2011

Council battle royal

In the last instalment of our candidate profile series, the Peninsula News Review hears from individuals running for North Saanich council positions in the Nov. 19 elections. We present their responses here and on page A6. Allan Collier

Age: 65 Occupation: Retired Family status: Married Political experience: Two years as School District 63 trustee How long have you lived in the municipality? 18 years What do you feel is the single biggest issue in this election? Continuance of open and responsible governance. How do you hope to solve it? By being elected. Allan Collier What do you think council has done well this term? Opened communication with community, capped tax increases, added youth to commissions. What would you do on council to improve it? Streamline approval information for residents and businesses.

Celia Stock

Age: Did not provide Occupation: Consultant Family status: Married with four children and six grandchildren. Political experience: I was elected alderman on Yellowknife city council and chaired the finance and legislation committee. How long have you lived in the municipality? Six years. What do you feel is the single biggest issue in this election? For now and over the next three years it is dealing with the shortfall between the cost of providing municipal services and the revenue generated. This has an implication for both residential and commercial taxes. How do you hope to Celia Stock solve it? In these recessionary times, I want to be careful with our tax money and maintain a strong tax base. I will ensure that we receive maximum value for our money, continue the rebuilding of our reserve funds and keep property taxes low. What do you think council has done well this term? Encouraged development and improved communication with residents. They have been sound financial managers, won an award for their agricultural policy,

encouraged the Flavour Trail and farm markets and acted positively to improve cycling infrastructure. What would you do on council to improve it? Encourage development within the framework of the official community plan, protect our marine habitat, farmland and parks and preserve the integrity of the Agricultural Land Reserve; help complete a comprehensive drainage plan for the District. Community outreach, cycling infrastructure and streamlining the permitting process are also important.

Elsie McMurphy

Age: 65 Occupation: Retired Family status: Married Political experience: School trustee for nine years How long have you lived in the municipality? 35 years What do you feel is the single biggest issue in this election? On the doorstep, North Saanich residents tell me they would like to see a little more development and some more affordable housing, but the single biggest issue is how much they value and want to preserve the nature of our community: “I like it just the way it is.” How do you hope to solve it? The official community plan gives council a powerful statement of direction: to retain the rural, agricultural and marine character of North Saanich. I look forward to engaging with Elsie McMurphy the community in the five-year review of that document. I support slow, controlled development and the regional housing and growth strategy. What do you think council has done well this term? Kept taxes low, improved communications with residents, simplified bylaws and expanded land-use regulations. Great bike paths. Excellent potential in the Sandown lands. Award-winning community agriculture strategy. What would you do on council to improve it? My experience as a school trustee in handling public finances, stretching tax dollars and reconciling conflicting demands, along with my commitment to open, respectful communications will enhance work council is already doing. North Saanich residents should be able to count on clear, complete information from their municipal hall.

Jack Thornburgh

Age: 72 Occupation: Semi-retired counsellor and caregiver Family status: Married Political experience: Served on Port Alberni city council in the 1990s How long have you lived in the municipality? Five years. What do you feel is the single biggest issue in this election? Differing views about the District’s official community plan. How do you hope to solve it? Helping educate people about the role, purpose and community benefits of the OCP. What do you think council has done well this term? Council has set a tone of civil dis- Jack Thornburgh course; has pursued some good initiatives such as the Sandown proposal, the pilot project on secondary suites, and bike lanes; and has taken care to work within the official community plan. What would you do on council to improve it? My background includes much experience in mediation and consultation, and I believe I can help improve communication between the District and residents on issues of mutual interest and importance.

Ted Daly

Age: 59 Occupation: Labour relations consultant Family status: Engaged with two grown children. Political experience: 18 years municipal experience, including nine years on Sidney council (1990-99) and nine on North Saanich council (1999 to 2002 as councillor, 2002-08 as mayor), six years as a director on the Capital Regional District Ted Daly board. How long have you lived in the municipality? 12 years What is the single biggest issue in this election? The Sandown proposal. There are too many questions and not enough answers. This issue needs comprehensive public input and consultation. What you do to solve it? I would ensure there is extensive opportunity for

public review and input. No decisions should be made until all details have been fleshed out and presented to the public. What has council done well this term? Improved the sound system in the council chambers and made webcasts of their meetings available. What would you do on council to improve it? Bring a balanced approach. The council has served the residents who live in the agricultural areas of the district well, but the residents who live in other areas haven’t been given the same attention. I would ensure that we listen to our entire community.

Conny McBride

Age: 64 Occupation: Retired insurance broker Family status: Widow with extended family in Victoria. Political experience: No publicly elected experience. How long have you lived in the municipality? Moved here in 1999, but had been a weekender since 1991. What do you feel is the single biggest issue in this election? Sandown, it’s a complicated issue. Free land is tempting, but the costs could cripple the taxpayers for years to come and make it a white elephant. It is already in the Agricultural Land Reserve, so we are not “saving” it. Dealing with the buildings, drainage, water, electrical environmental studies, and making land farmable would be expensive. How do you hope to Conny McBride solve it? Come up with a comprehensive business plan, with input from the community, and not just a few people. Not all this land is farmable and our hands should not be tied for years to come. Further, open discussion is needed on the exact use of this property, i.e., what type of agriculture and who will use it. What do you think council has done well this term? Web cam for council meetings lets the taxpayers see what happens at these meetings. What would you do on council to improve it: Be more inclusive, appreciate all opinions and decide on the best course of action. Appreciate the diversity of this community, after all, we are not all farmers. PLEASE SEE: North Saanich, Page A6

Graham … Continued from Page A1

Revitalizing the Keating business district is also on the minds of voters, he’s found from talking to hundreds of residents in the municipality. After spending resources building up Brentwood Bay and Saanichton, Graham says, it’s time for the district to devote time and energy to bringing business back to Central Saanich’s primary industrial/

Keating, Saanichton, Brentwood Bay or elsewhere. “Dollars are lost by not having a defined vision,” Bryson says. Making Central Saanich a more inviting place to do business requires changing from a “persuade us” approach to development proposals to “What can we do to help you?” “It’s a bit of a land-of-plenty, complacency approach,” Bryson says. “Fiscally that may not be sustainable.” It may take a change in the culture of staff as well as for politicians to show a will to

change things, he adds. Asked what Central Saanich’s biggest challenges are, he uses his favourite word: opportunity. “We have to keep Central Saanich providing opportunities for farmers to make a living, for businesses to thrive and for families to have opportunities to live and obtain affordable accommodation.” Recognizing that a healthy, prosperous municipality depends on all of those aspects is critical to moving Central Saanich forward, he says. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

commercial district. In creating a businessfriendly climate there, he says, “You wouldn’t use the Keating model in Brentwood Bay or Saanichton. You’ve got to recognize it for what it is.” Instead of creating specific zoning for the area that would throw up a stop sign for certain businesses, he says, why not open it up for myriad potential uses, after hearing from residents what they wouldn’t like to see allowed there? Asked how he’d deal with a $13-million municipal debtload,

Graham first clarifies that a major factor in the district’s need to take on debt was a $1.25-million cut in annual funding from the provincial and federal governments. “That’s a big hit for a small municipality.” Doing due diligence on infrastructure projects such as the new fire hall, and such community amenities as the Wallace Drive tennis courts, an $800,000 facility whose cost tripled from the original plan, will help the district keep a handle on its debt, he adds. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Alastair weighs in

Chris weighs in

On recording council votes: “When you’re thinking about the details of an item, it can be tough to remember to ask that your vote be recorded. It should just be automatic.” On supporting farmers: “We’ve done a good job protecting agricultural land from development. We have to look closer at the potential of the land and represent that to the region.” On housing for local employees: “Under our densification policy, there is an opportunity to create higherdensity developments with street-level commercial. That will provide housing and help our tax base.”

On Keating X Road: “The district has limited resources, (but) making Keating work should be a top priority in terms of planning. On hiring an economic development officer: “There’s merit in the idea — in branding our area for tourism and for farmers. If you can attract people to the gate, farms will benefit.” On dealing with debt: “We’ve been a pay-as-you-go municipality, rather than setting aside money for future projects. (Setting aside funds) has the effect of keeping people’s hands out of the cookie jar, because they know that cash is allocated for something.”

Dunstan Browne

Age: 68 Occupation: Lawyer Family status: Married Political experience: 10 years as a councillor in Natal, South Africa; elected to North Saanich council. How long have you lived in the municipality? 23 years What do you feel is the single biggest issue in this election? Restraint; unnecessary spending in relation to the over-emphasis on the promotion of agriculture and on useless consultant reports, which also applies to the proposed acquisition of the Sandown lands. How do you hope Dunstan to solve it? Browne Change the way council deals with issues, from an emphasis on process to a common-sense approach that results in taking action within our means. What do you think council has done well this term? The introduction of controlled video/ audio of council meetings. That is good communication and good transparency.

Don’t Retire Vision You don’t have to worry about running out of vision. It’s not like you can use it up and then there is no more left. As long as the eye is healthy it will pick up visual signals and transmit them to the brain to be interpreted. It will go on doing this indefinitely without ever quitting. The muscles of the eye, on the other hand, can become fatigued. Long periods of concentrated reading or close work may weary them to the point where they just cannot go on responding to the demands put on them. The need a temporary rest. It is this feeling of the eye fatigue which has let to the myth that vision can be “worn out”. The sad thing about this is that many older people voluntarily limit the use of their eyes. They cut back on their reading, sewing and television watching for fear of losing their remaining eyesight. Well, there’s no reason to retire vision. With good health and suitable vision aids, there are no limits to what you can see. And, in fact, the one person you should make a point of seeing on a regular basis is your Optometrist.

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW - Wednesday, November 16, 2011 

Seeking four-legged, furry models

Bill Kierans sees the streets of Sidney as characterized by the plethora of dogs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are dogs on the sidewalks, in cars, in businesses, and outside restaurants,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dogs are always good conversation starters so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual to see a dog in the centre of a group of chatting pedestrians, and maybe even looking up as if participating. It all adds to the friendly atmosphere, and to tourist memories.â&#x20AC;? For the last few months, the Sidney man has been taking candid photos of local dogs in their everyday surroundings and recording anecdotes and background about their life for a promotional book called The Dogs of Sidney by the Sea. Publication is expected early in 2012, not as a moneymaking venture, more to showcase Sidneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friendly atmosphere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the pictures were candidly taken in downtown Sidney but some in nearby communities as well,â&#x20AC;? Kierans said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not a contest but something much more important; a candid collection of dogs as they appear everyday on the streets of Sidney. No posing, no enhancing (the) background, no breed stance, no treat held in the air, just the dogs as seen every day in Sidney and nearby communities.â&#x20AC;? Every dog has a story and their owners, walkers, rescuers, and babysitters are sharing background anecdotes about their four-legged family member. The stories recount their favoured

OUR VIEW

Sign pollution will end soon One of the first signs of election season is the sprouting of candidate signs all over the landscape. On the agriculturally rich Saanich Peninsula, the crop of signage has been a bumper one, with posters of all colours and sizes hammered into the ground from Tanner Ridge to Swartz Bay. Election signs As we head into the final days of the 2011 a fact of life, municipal election ugly as they are campaign, the signage is at its ripest point, ready to be picked. Candidates have a relatively limited number of ways to get their message out in a broad manner. Other than advertising in print or online publications, or speaking at an all-candidates’ meeting, they usually involve either putting out as many lawn signs as possible, or distributing leaflets to mailboxes in their respective municipalities. The accumulation of signs in high-traffic areas, such as the corner of the Pat Bay Highway and Beacon Avenue, and the highway and Mount Newton X Road, is almost to the point of being a hazard to drivers. On the one hand, the larger signs appear almost like an extension of the billboard section of the Pat Bay Highway and thus, don’t seem so out of place. On the other, the small signs often appear more as a blight on the landscape given their proliferation. Now, we’re all for freedom of speech and of expression, but in this way election time offers up the most extreme example of democracy run amok. We have to question just how effective peppering a block with signs is, in terms of securing name recognition for a candidate. But hey, we’re not experts in human psychology. We appreciate the need to get one’s name out there in an effort to get elected, but we also appreciate when the elections are over and the signs come down. What do you think?

become even more of an insider activity. To take one example, a school trustee candidate forum in Abbotsford last week started with a protest march by 18 teachers. They carried their message inside, demanding smaller classes, more special needs support, the familiar list of demands in their dysfunctional relationship with the provincewide bargaining agent. Of course school trustees have no actual authority over these huge and costly issues. The province took away school board taxing authority long ago, because the teacher and support staff unions have the money and voting numbers to control low-turnout local elections for their own benefit. Now the unions have to settle for vetting candidates according to their willingness to lobby the B.C. government on behalf of unions. (If anyone has attended a trustee forum that wasn’t taken over by teachers, please e-mail me. I haven’t heard of one for years.) There are still things you can do to compare candidates, and it doesn’t take long to sort through a dozen or two hopefuls. Please, check this paper’s website for surveys and stories on the local candidates, and take some time on Saturday to back the people who you think have the best experience, independence and understanding of the community’s needs. Occupy the voting booth. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

LETTERS Co-op member sees tax hit ahead

Unlike Occupy, reader doesn’t begrudge banks The recent Occupy protests perplex me. I recently noticed a banner in downtown Victoria proclaiming the “people’s protest.” I have nothing to protest. I am not one of those “people.” I presume my upbringing was different from those in the square. I prefer to make my own way and my own money; I am doing that well, if I do say so myself. I don’t want any bankers to give me their “enormous” profits. They can earn it and spend it wherever they like and assist our consumer-based economy. In my opinion, these protesters are too busy hanging about while the rest of us make what we can of our lives. If they don’t like the way their life is going, they should change it themselves, not protest that someone else should change. They may want to start with a shower, a shave and a job interview. Michael Klassen Sidney

Don Descoteau/News staff

Another boring day at the waterfront A seagull sitting with a cormorant and a fellow gull appears weary of the situation during a Sunday afternoon sit near the Beacon Pier in Sidney.

Incoming Sidney council should consider pay freeze People need to ask themselves before Saturday’s municipal election (Nov. 19) how is my tax dollar being spent? While I have respect for our municipal employees, I think a 13-per-cent increase in costs for the hourly paid staff (over three years) is pretty rich, but a 26 per cent increase in costs for management staff is unacceptable. One wonders who’s in charge of our municipality. I would expect the mayor and incoming council to consider a three-year freeze on wages and

undertake a serious review of management salaries. If the Sidney retail community enjoyed this sort of remuneration, we’d be out of business in six months. The past three years have been tough on business, and residents living on investment income. The Town should be cognizant of the local business economy and act accordingly. Clive Tanner Sidney

Re: Co-op member feels left out of development loop (PNR Letters, Nov. 9) I wholeheartedly agree with the letter writer and have expressed the same concerns, via email to the Co-op board of directors. To date, no one from Co-op has replied back or made any attempt to contact me. I, too, wonder why this new move was never put to the membership and agree, it is likely because it would have been voted down. Not only will Co-op’s move to Stelly’s X Road disrupt the current country atmosphere, it will do so with a likely high financial burden to Central Saanich taxpayers. Stelly’s X Road as it is now will not accommodate the expected increase in traffic. It is a narrow road and pedestrians

must be very cautious walking on the narrow shoulder. As stated by Central Saanich council, a move to the Tsartlip land will result in a tax loss to our community of approximately $70,000. Is Co-op going to pay for the necessary road widening or, the traffic signals that will eventually be required at either end of Stelly’s in order to accommodate the expected increased traffic volumes? No, it will most likely revert to we taxpayers. Co-op will lease the land for the new store. Are there no properties big enough to lease in the nearly empty Keating area? Taxpayers of Central Saanich, express your concerns to both Co-Op and council. Your pocketbook will thank you. Terry Albrecht Central Saanich

Not surprising given the makeup of the audience, all four men vying for mayoral seats on the Peninsula say they will support business if elected. Alastair Bryson and Christopher Graham, seeking the top job in Central Saanich, answered questions alongside Sidney mayoral candidates Larry Cross and Jack Barker during a luncheon meeting hosted by Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. Alice Finall, the mayor acclaimed in North Saanich, also participated in the discussion. Transportation, highway access, housing and a businessfriendly culture on the Peninsula all made the question session and got similar answers from the candidates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sidney is struggling to look at worker housing,â&#x20AC;? Cross said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our challenge is land, and because we have so little land, costs are high.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree with Larry, we need to look at that,â&#x20AC;? Barker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need affordable and attainable housing in our three communities.â&#x20AC;? They also agreed in principle on signage issues in the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to revisit this, but

we need to be careful of our signage,â&#x20AC;? Barker said. Huge signs could ruin the quaint atmosphere of the main streets, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sign bylaw, like many of our other bylaws, is antiquated â&#x20AC;Ś Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prohibitive, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfriendly,â&#x20AC;?

dates, too, found places to agree, noting that the Keating X Road industrial area provides opportunity for growth. The businessbased audience asked whether it was realistic to envision achieving safer access from the highway to Keating anytime soon.

good business case will get the ball rolling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely an issue of dollars and priorities for the province,â&#x20AC;? Graham said, adding it could be a long, uphill battle. While the series of roundabouts at the airport werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the simplest concept for an interchange, candidates agreed, they do function. The roundabout slated for Ocean Avenue and Lochside Drive split the Sidney candidates. They were asked that if the project appeared to be over budget, would they not only consider constructing a four-way stop instead, but reinstate the visitor centre removed to create Iroquois Park. The roundabout, funded with gas tax funds, would need public review, Barker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to talk about what is best for our community.â&#x20AC;? The problem, he and Cross agreed, is ferry traffic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(A roundabout) will keep that traffic flowing and it will be traffic calming for (vehicles) coming north into Sidney,â&#x20AC;? Cross said. The plan now, he added, is to divert ferry traffic into Sidney to the visitor information centre on Bevan Avenue. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com

Inspired by the Metis and First Nations art show in Tulista Park, Doug Lafortune will gather his creative pals this weekend at Tsawout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people came by (the Tulista show) and they wanted to meet artists and support local artists,â&#x20AC;? said Lafortuneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Kathy Horne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really hope a lot of people will come out (this weekend.)â&#x20AC;? With a long list of notable artists in the Rolodex through Lafortuneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work life, the couple knew it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be difficult to pull together a show at the local recreation centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realized we know many people through Dougâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work,â&#x20AC;?

Council supports artists, students Artisans Christmas on now at Tulista Park centre The Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula plays an important role in the local creative community. First, the council hosts a variety of shows featuring work of local artists at the community art centre at Tulista Park. Examples are the current Artisans Christmas Gift Gallery, and the successful First Nations and Metis show in September and October. Secondly, the centre is used as an arts resource where area groups can bring brochures and posters for distribution. A goal in the new year is to acquire a larger kiosk to accommodate even more handouts and newsletters. Thirdly, each year the arts council budgets an amount to provide financial support to member groups.

This year the council financially supported: the Sidney Concert Society, the Sidney Concert Band, Via Choralis, Palm Court (concert in Sidney), Sidney Shutterbugs, Deep Cove Folk and Sidney Serenaders. Another supportive effort of the arts council is directed to young people. Through its Arts in the Schools program in 2011, director Audrey Waugh presented Saanich School District with $5,000 to bring artists, writers and performers into the schools to offer instruction. The funds come from the Sidney Fine Art Show, a raffle of donated work and a private donation. The

Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC).
