Sidney goes to the birds Laura Lavin News Staff

Local wildlife will get a higher profile thanks to a signage initiative. Krista Englund, Important Bird Area caretaker coordinator for BC Nature, spoke to Sidney council about the importance of local bird populations and increasing awareness of the local shores and birds that make Sidney their home. “If you want to protect these birds then you have to protect their habitat all across their entire range and that is exactly what the Important Bird Area program does,” said Englund. “The nice She explained that BC thing about bird Nature and Bird Studies are interested in watching is you Canada developing interpretative don’t have to go signs for the Sidney Chanout on a boat to nel Important Bird Area. “The nice thing about do it, you can do bird watching is you don’t it right here from have to go out on a boat to do it, you can do it right the waterfront in here from the waterfront in Sidney,” she said. Sidney.” “This council, previous – Krista Englund councils, have focussed on developing, I think, one of the finest walkways along the waterfront in western Canada. With this particular initiative … we’ll have some interest, I suspect,” said mayor Larry Cross. “I support an initiative like this and I’d like to make a motion to refer to staff to work with the presenters tonight to make it happen,” said councillor Cliff McNeil-Smith. There are 600 important bird areas across the country. “We’re moving on to protection and monitoring,” Englund said. “When I say protection, I don’t mean drawing a circle around an important bird area and saying that’s it, nothing happens in there. What it means is finding a way, within those areas, for people and birds to coexist. And that’s where the monitoring comes PLEASE SEE: Signage part of larger plan, Page A6

Book celebrates women Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Christine van Reeuwyk/News staff

Staff from Nickel Bros. lift the historic Shady Creek United Church to add a little support.

Boosting faith Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Shady Creek United Church is standing strong and steady, ready to celebrate 150 years next year. In preparation for the party, the little church on East Saanich Road got a bit of a boost, and support, as Nickel Bros. replaced a rotting beam beneath the building. “For this “Another 150 years would be nice,” said Rev. Jonelle McLellan, who was on hand as the church church the got a boost. “For this church the building is very building is very treasured.” treasured.” While Shady Creek United turns 150 next year, the building was erected in 1895. A national - Jonelle McLellan historic site, the little church needed some support. As Nickel Bros. lifted the historic church, and replaced the old beam, board chair Jack Mather couldn’t help but chuckle: “(They’re) putting the church on a firmer foundation.”

Merna Foster knows the intimate details of more than 200 famous and not-so-famous Canadian women and Jennie Butchart is among them. Foster grew up in a small town where never really heard of any great women. She knew of Nelly McLung, only because of a family connection and a small collection of first-edition McLung books. “When I went to school I didn’t learn about any notable women, and even when I went to university ... really I didn’t learn much about women,” Foster explained. Her interest piqued she sought out her own heroines, story-bystory she learned about vital women in our nation’s history. “I thought I should create a website,” she explained. At www. the stories and photos became so prolific Forster couldn’t stand it anymore. Her one-woman website is so busy, she gets the occasional job application from those expecting the site’s run by a larger organization. Then came a push. Forster, living in Ontario at the time, realized how few women were on the CBC’s 2004 survey of the 100 greatest Canadians. She had to write a book. Forster created the ultimate guide to cool Canadian women from every corner of the country in 100 Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces with tales of remarkable women in Canadian history, from the adventurous Gudridur the Viking to murdered Mi’kmaq activist Anna Mae Aquash. Forster went on speaking engagements that literally engaged the audience. The public actively participated sending emails and traditional mail full of tales, suggestions, documentation and photos.

“Unfortunately I couldn’t include all of the suggestions,” Forster said. So prolific were the ideas, alongside traditional research and women she stumbled across in her travels, Forster released the second installment, 100 More Canadian Heroines: Famous and Forgotten Faces earlier this month. One of those heroines is Jennie Butchart. “I found out really she was the mover and shaker behind the gardens. Some local people here are aware of that, I suspect most people across Canada aren’t,” Forster said. “She was an environmentalist before such a thing became popular.”

Did you know? � October is Women’s History Month.

A Legacy of Blooms goes beyond the little details. Butchart was orphaned as a teen, earned an art scholarship to Paris, had a certificate in chemistry and worked in the cement plant laboratory. Then came the garden. “I think it’s sort of fun to know a bit more of the background about her,” Forster said.

Others in the book will be even lesser known to Vancouver Islanders. “In this last book, I was able to connect with a number of relatives of the people in the book,” Forster said. That included Trevor Bennet, son of Myra Bennet, pioneer nurse in Newfoundland. “For decades she offered the only medical help in this really remote coastal area of Newfoundland,” the author explained. Through the internet, Forster connected with the son, now in his 80s. “He was a wonderful source of information for the book,” Forster said. “He has an incredible memory and he remembers every detail from such a long time ago. The past history is augmented with women from modern history, including Sindi Hawkins. The first Indo-Canadian woman to hold a cabinet post in provincial government, Satinder Hawkins, Trailblazer is plumped with information from the late MLA’s family. In both books, Forster strove to feature famous and forgotten faces across the board, in science, sport, politics, war and peace, arts and entertainment, and many other fields. “I hope that the stories are inspirational to people and will help ensure that these people are remembered,” Forster said. “It saddens me that a number of people were buried in unmarked graves.” Her hopes are to see Canadian women rank higher, should anyone opt to do another poll of greatest Canadians in history. “It’s just one book but I hope that one small book might make a difference,” she said. “I continue to give presentations and do my bit.” Visit to learn more about the author and where the buy her latest book.

Heritage Acres enchanted Halloween may be the Day of the Dead, but it doesn’t have to be scary. Enchanted Halloween is a celebration for the whole family, and for the second year it will be held at the turn-of-thecentury village and grounds at Heritage Acres. This event will again showcase the best of Halloween-related cultural traditions and activities. “We were convinced there are a lot of people who love to celebrate Halloween, but are put off by the ‘shock and gore’ that has become over-represented in presentday Halloween culture,” said Alice Bacon, creative director for Shine*ola Communications and Events and co-producer for Enchanted. Last year’s event attracted more than 4,000 people, encouraging the organization to make this an annual event. There is a wide variety of activities planned for all ages. These include a pumpkin trail with interactive, costumed characters handing out treats, a ‘Wicked’ tableau and other themed displays such as the Mexican-flavoured “Day of the Dead”, kids crafts, magicians, stilt-walkers, performers, storytellers and much more. Intrepid Theatre, producers of the Victoria Fringe Theatre Festival and Uno Fest, are co-producing Enchanted Halloween, bringing with them many volunteers and performers. “As Halloween is arguably the most theatrical of all holidays, we think this is going to be great fun,” said Janet Munsil, Intrepid’s artistic director. “Enchanted presents a unique opportunity for some of our performers to create small-scale “pocket” performances, which people will chance across as they wander through the village.” A major change this year is that there will be no on-site parking at Heritage Acres. Event-goers are asked to assemble at Gateway Park in the Keating Industrial area and ride the shuttle bus to the Heritage Acres site. Only vehicles displaying valid disabled parking permits will be allowed to park at Heritage Acres. A shuttle bus will run every eight minutes from the 500-space parking area. Munsil said there will be a story-teller on

Small is successful

The Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce is hosting a free workshop event for all small businesses on the Peninsula. Small businesses with fewer than 50 employees create jobs, invest in employee training and development, pay taxes, and take risks. While the economic instability in recent times has created challenges for these risk-takers, there are also a number of opportunities that small businesses can capitalize on — if they are properly prepared. “Canada continues to make positive headway in international markets, but only nine per cent of small companies export,” said Doug Taylor, executive director of the chamber. “There are many small business success stories from this region where small companies effectively get their products or services to foreign customers.” Taylor, also an international business consultant, is one of several speakers at the event. Others include Milica Ivaz, a certified financial planner and division director at Investors Group; Pooja Sund, B.A., an established business financial analyst at CIBC Securities Inc. in Saanichton; Mike Lenz, the first certified business intermediary on Vancouver Island and principal of Vancouver Island Business Sales; and Ryan Labelle, owner of Honeycomb Webworks. RSVP to 250-656-3616 or email The workshop is Friday, Oct. 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Mary Winspear Centre. •• A5 A5

Densification study deferred to 2012 Laura Lavin News Staff

Central Saanich council deferred the public input process for a Residential Densification Study until early 2012. The Residential Densification Study is to address the concerns raised by neighbourhoods when proposals are submitted requesting increased density in the district. The district’s Offi-


cial Community Plan notes that residents have expressed concerns about the impact of densification on their property and quality of life. The policy encourages council to undertake a process to develop a set of guidelines for rezoning, comparable to the Design Guidelines for Infill Housing and to give direction to potential developers and provide a sense of security for neighbourhoods.

For your inspection and permit or any questions please call the Fire Department at 250-656-1931 or visit our website: HALLOWEEN BONFIRE AND FIREWORKS Please join the North Saanich Fire Department for our annual bonfire and fireworks on Monday October 31; bonfire, hot dogs, and drinks starting at 6:30 p.m., and fireworks at 7:45 p.m. Fire Chief Gary Wilton

“After meeting to discuss the timelines it was noted that due to the upcoming municipal elections, and in light of the fact that the project is an important community consultation that will not benefit from being rushed, council agreed with a recommendation to defer the public input process until early 2012,” said councillor Adam Olsen. editor@peninsulanewsreview. com

Times Colonist has new owner as the Globe and Mail newspaper last month reported that Postmedia was exploring the sale of the Times Colonist as part of a broader strategy of paying down the company’s debts after it bought the Canwest media conglomerate for $1.1 billion. Postmedia was formed in mid2010 to buy out bankrupt Canwest. Glacier said in a news release that “the acquisition will be financed with bank borrowings.” The sale also includes real

estate and associated Postmedia digital operations. Glacier, traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol GVC, says “the transaction is expected to close on or about Nov. 30, 2011, and is conditional upon regulatory and other customary approvals.” Glacier owns magazines and newspapers across Western Canada and in Ontario. Among these are 17 papers in B.C., including four daily newspapers.

New avenues inform voters With the growing popularity of websites, blogs and other social media outlets, residents will have to make a conscious decision not to participate in this year’s municipal election. The rise of virtual networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn means voters have more access than ever to candidates Social media running for a seat on council this opens up fall. discussions Residents can use those social media platforms to ask questions, participate in discussions and ultimately make an informed decision on who is best to guide a municipality for the next three years. Uncensored by media, organizers or other special interest groups, voters can interact directly with candidates and pose the questions on issues that matter most. The same can be said for those candidates answering the questions. New avenues of communication don’t negate old forms, however. More traditional campaign communications, such as allcandidates forums, door-knocking and the oft-maligned signage, are still relevant, but for how long is anyone’s guess. Candidates — and voters — who find themselves technologically challenged might also find themselves at a disadvantage. Citizens often complain post-election about the lack of information and access to candidates as a reason they failed to vote. With the advent of social media and its use by today’s politicians, that excuse no longer holds water. The avenues and channels to reach a municipal candidate and share ideas are wider than ever, leaving few excuses for residents not to cast an informed vote in the Nov. 19 election. — Nanaimo News Bulletin

It wants a backlog of 2,800 applications for new or increased service eliminated, apparently without any efficiency moves. It wants an “independent review” of CLBC followed by a fulltime independent advocate for developmentally disabled people. (The NDP also wants independent advocates with office staff and investigative powers for seniors and forest workers. B.C.’s independent children’s advocate continues to pile up reports with questionable effect in another area of intractable and growing social problems.) Cadieux says CLBC’s internal service quality advocate has a high success rate resolving family complaints. A toll-free line has been set up to direct service issues to a new client support group.

LETTERS Wildlife deserve better from humankind

A pair of deer munch a lawn in North Saanich.

News Review/file photo

Animals should complain Instead of complaining about the wildlife, people who don’t want to live with wildlife should live elsewhere, and those who do want to live with wildlife should farm products, or plant and design their gardens, appropriately. We think we are the supreme species, but humankind is the only species to cause climate change; ocean meltdown; rampant, cross-pollinating genetic plant mutation; super bugs and the decline of bee populations due to pesticides; antibiotic-resistant bacteria; industrial and domestic air pollution covering the globe; and a list of extinctions that grows daily. We are the only species that has the capacity to discern and utilize vegetable protein, yet we clearcut the rain forests and destroy the prairie soil to maintain a seemingly insatiable lust for beef. Although we are the only species to understand how to control our own populations, we are at the eve of global destruction and enormous human suffering because we have not done so. In this area the average home or business has a driveway unnecessarily covered with toxic petroleum by-product, a lawn unnecessarily maintained through constant watering and the use of toxic chemicals, and a garden maintained to ridiculous standards with a variety of unnecessary polluting tools. Leaf-blowers alone, in addition to the appalling noise pollution, have the adverse health effects of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and particulates generated in the exhaust and problems related to dust. Most areas have no municipal, enforced regulations in place to protect our environment from water pollution due to leaking marine engines; from the air pollution of small motors and the burning of wet leaves and toxic substances; and, with the exception of more enlightened Canadian cities such as Sarnia and Calgary, from songbird extinction due to unregulated outdoor domestic and feral cats; even though these are basic, simple procedures. We have no right to complain about the deer or any other animal, but every other species on the planet has the right to complain about us. Virginia Smith, North Saanich

Taxation is the issue Re: Nothing wrong with rewarding hard work (PNR letters Oct. 21) I would urge Bob to ask his late-20s or early-30s son/daughter to attempt to get a 3 million dollar loan to start a grocery store. Or to even try and buy a piece of land to put a car dealership on. Long gone are the days when anyone could start a business and not be so competed against that failure isn’t a “what-if”, but a when. The problem with the system (and the main focus of occupy wherever) is taxation ….The lowest incomes shouldn’t be taxed, the higher tax brackets should pay the biggest sums, because they can afford to. That is what we wish to see in a fair world. Noel Gagnon, Sidney

Every road we travel, paved parking and building reduces wildlife habitat. Every one of us, now totalling seven billion worldwide competes with wildlife for our place on Earth. We cannot co-exist with wildlife within our populated areas. We have destroyed their world in order to have ours. We are all guilty of natural habitat destruction if we make use of roads and buildings. Yes, there are still many trees growing in many areas around here. If there weren’t, all of the animals would be on the roads, in our yards, in our farmlands, and in the city. Where else could they be? We have created a tragic imbalance that is up to us to correct for the good of these beautiful creatures that deserve a better world than we have made for them. Think about how each of the creatures we see beside our roads and highways have died. Lonely, lingering, painful deaths in too many cases. Think of the tragedy and grief produced by anyone of our loved ones being killed or maimed as the results of wildlife accidents in our vehicles. Think about the tragedy of cougar attacks on small children, beloved pets and valuable domestic animals as a result of being drawn into our populated areas by the over-abundance of deer, geese, racoons, and rabbits. Think of the cost to farmers and consumers from crop damage (which is huge around here) at a time of rapidly shrinking fossil fuel supplies that supports the far-reaching food industry that feeds the majority of us. We have some difficult and unpalatable choices to make in the face of our exponential resident animal population explosion. Let’s all look together toward the proper management of this unnatural situation we have created and mismanaged for far too long. These beautiful creatures deserve better from all of us. Brian Trotto, Central Saanich

Wednesday, October October 26, 26, 2011 2011 -- PENINSULA PENINSULA Wednesday,


Sidney centre part of unstoppable team Arnold Lim 27 wins, no losses. 1031 points for, 98 points against to go with two championships and no losses in the history of the franchise. Not bad for a new team of nine, 10 and 11 year-old football players — and they aren’t done yet. “These kids are great,” said head coach Darryl Pollock of the young Victoria Hitmen, a team he has coached from game one. “It is the kids that execute it … They are the ones working their tails off.” It wasn’t always so easy, a slow start with only seven kids signing up for the then upstart Greater Victoria Minor Football team in 2009, Pollock was forced to work the phones, contacting parents hoping to get children to play so they could field a team that year. Little did he know, the team he assembled would set the ground work for an undefeated season, then two and if he has his way three. “Other coaches bicker and moan they will say we stack our team and the other teams get the (worse) players,” Pollock said. “I don’t (care) what other people say, I am loyal to my kids and my kids parents. I don’t really care.” Connor way, a Grade 5 student St. Michael’s University junior school is one such student who is helping the team on it’s way to a third consecutive undefeated season and just can’t get enough.

Victoria Hitmen centre Connor Way has his eyes set on an third straight undefeated season and another provincial championship. “Football is a wonderful sport … I would recommend it for anybody,” the 10-year-old Sidney resident said. “In most sports like soccer and baseball, you don’t really get to hit. I like the hitting part.” Five games into their third season they are

already hitting on all cylinders amassing a 5-0 record after a 60-0 win over Nanaimo. Half way through their eight-game regular season, the offensive line captain already has his eyes on the prize. “We have a great team,” Way said. “With our team this year, I think we will win it again.” The young leader plays a position that seldom gets much of the glory but coach Pollock heaps heavy praise upon the hard-working 10-year-old. “He is one of the hardest working kids I have ever coached. He will do whatever coaches ask for, he is not a selfish player at all,” Pollock said. “I look forward to huge things from him. He will be one of the strongest kids in the league will develop and be a star for somebody some day.” At the end of the day, seeing that development and improvement from his players day in and day out is what drives him to spend so much time with the team, not just the wins and losses. “I have kids (starting out) running away from the ball,” Pollock said laughing. “They come back the next year, (we) give them a chance and next thing you know they are a star.” Playoffs start Oct. 30, while provincials are in Kamloops Nov. 12 and 13.

The UVic Vikes women’s field hockey season closed with a 2-2 tie against the Calgary Dinos on Sunday. The Dinos will host the CIS National Championships. The young Vikes squad finishes 2-8-2. Marisa Davidson and Sam Purcell scored in Sunday’s tie, while Courtney Low and Whitney Siegmann scored in the Vikes’ 6-2 loss to Calgary. Meanwhile, coaches voted Victoria product Robyn Pendleton as the 2011 Canada West field hockey Most Valuable Player. She scored six goals this year, helping the Thunderbirds to a ninth straight conference title and a spot at next month’s nationals in Calgary. UVic and national team player Kaitlyn Williams was named Canada West Goalkeeper of the Year.

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Double Vision The sudden onset of double vision is a frightening experience. Double vision occurs when the two eyes don’t point at the same object. Each eye sends an image to the brain which attempts to superimpose the two images. When this works we have depth perception, when it doesn’t we have “diplopia” or double vision. Some people experience occasional diplopia when they are tired or taking certain medications. This occurs because the central control of the muscles used to align the eyes is compromised. This condition, while a nuisance, disappears when the cause is remedied. Sometimes diplopia occurs for no apparent reason. Possible causes include a stroke, a tumor, diabetes or multiple sclerosis. It is important to have a medical evaluation to ensure nothing untoward has occurred. Often normal vision returns gradually. Spectacles with prism can be helpful in aligning the images until the diplopia has resolved or stabilized. If you suffer from double vision, be sure to have a thorough examination by an optometrist regularly.

V-ballers set for good start Parkland fall sports are off with a shot and the Panther teams are well in to their busy seasons. The Junior and Senior girls, and Junior boys volleyball teams are in action representing Parkland in league play and tournaments. The Senior Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team is having a successful season so far. They recently hosted Stellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Claremont and were able to defeat their Central Saanich rivals. Captained by Kim Neville-Rutherford the team has strong leadership and a desire to compete. Their goal is to reach the finals of the Vic Lindal Cup in November. Coaches Ty Mickelson and Paul Flater both feel this team has the determination to go to the Island championships this year. Coaches Katie Fast and Larry Green are pleased with the improvement their junior girls team this season. They were at John Stubbs Memorial School last Saturday for a tournament where they won two out of three games. They showed vast improvement in their passing and serving. Both Kristy Gallagher and Meghan King showed they were

a force to be reckoned with at the net and blocked numerous balls that ended with points for Parkland. Paige Judson also stepped up to the plate and played in the setterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position for the first time. The girls looks forward to improving as a team and winning games as the season continues. The Junior Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volleyball team is showing great potential this year. Caelen MacEwan and Garnet Roberts, returnees from last year, are leading with strong spiking and blocking. Returning setters Kyle Dong and Lawrence Sauler are also having a strong year. A number of talented Grade 9s have joined the team this year. Power hitters Michael Ram, Richard Xie and Royce Maneses have done well. Middle blocker Russ Bennett and setter Steven Ehlich has also been impressive. The team played in the Camosun tournament a couple of weeks ago and will be playing in the Nanaimo this weekend. Coaches Lorne Chan and Jesse Smart have been happy with the progress of the team this season. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Parkland secondary school

ARTS Town plans increase in seaside art Wednesday, October 26, 2011 - PENINSULA

Laura Lavin News Staff

Sidney is expanding its network of public art. The Sidney Seaside Sculpture Walk is planned as an outdoor gallery of spectacular artwork for the public to enjoy as they stroll along the shore, and purchase if they wish. “We will install 12 pieces this year, and every year add to it,” said Richard Paquette, organizer. The town, working in conjunction with the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula, is looking for artists who are interested in exhibiting their outdoor public art for a two year period as part of the walk. “Eventually there will be 50 or 60 or 70 pieces as you walk along … imagine the seaside walk like that … that’s the vision,” said Paquette. The sculpture walk stretches two kilometres along the Sidney waterfront from Henry Avenue to Weiler Avenue. A committee will be formed to evaluate submissions and make recommendations to the town. Artwork must be original, made of vandalism-resistant, durable material that is suitable for an outdoor, exposed

Waiting game Lineup starts early for unique artwork Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

The Sigouins should be owners of a fine new Robert Bateman original. The family came early and stayed all day awaiting the opening of the Peninsula Gallery’s 25th anniversary show. “My parents are trying to buy a new Robert Bateman original,” explained

Dustin Sigouin, who did homework while taking his turn waiting. “Because he’s such a famous artist they wanted to make sure,” added friend Jade Duong. Bateman created a piece just for the 25th anniversary show. The kids didn’t mind taking their turn in the breezy walkway on Beacon Ave. “It was a good excuse to come to the Island,” Duong said. reporter@peninsulanewsreview. com

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

Dear BBB, I just received a call from an aggressive sales person claiming they were a representative of the local hydro company. The caller claimed that they had some sort of energy conservation product that would substantially reduce my hydro bill. The deal sounded pretty good, but the sales person was rude and pushy so I hung up the phone. Now I am regretful that I didn’t take advantage of this offer. Do you happen to know anything more about this energy saving product? ~ Conscientious Consumer Conscientious Consumer, You are likely WRONG about having missed out on a great energy conservation product and probably RIGHT to have just hung up the phone on this sales person. The BBB has recently received an influx of calls from consumers reporting deceptive and misleading sales practices related to a device known as a “power saver device.” Reports suggest that some telephone sales people have been misleading consumers into thinking they are calling on behalf of a local or provincial power company. The caller then claims that they have a power saver device available that will reduce the currents on power supplies and appliances in the consumer’s house. Hydro savings promised range from 25% to 50%. The device itself is being sold on average for somewhere around $150.00. Many of the consumers that have called the BBB allege that the power saver device does not work. While there may be some companies out there selling legitimate products capable of helping you to reduce your energy consumption, it is important for consumers to be aware that there are also companies selling power saving devices that are reported to not work and which do not meet the Electrical Safety Authority’s Canadian Safety Standards. This is a great example of why it is really important to do your research before purchasing any product.

CEO defends disabled care Tom Fletcher Black Press

As the opposition kept up the political pressure on the B.C. Liberal government to halt the closure of group homes for developmentally disabled people, the interim CEO of the agency responsible held a rare news conference at the B.C. legislature Wednesday. Doug Woollard was promoted to replace Community Living B.C. CEO Rick Mowles, who was fired last week amid reports of families being pressured to accept home-stay placements instead of group homes with 24-hour staff. Woollard acknowledged that there have been 15 to 20 cases where CLBC did not consult adequately with the families of clients before changing their living arrangements. He said the intent is to reach agreement with families before changes are made For one of those cases, the Williams Road group home in Richmond, Woollard gave a specific assurance: “If we don’t reach agreement with the families, we won’t change it.” Under opposition questioning in the legislature Tuesday, Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux announced that her deputy minister, along with deputies from children and family development and the health ministry, are reviewing the way all provincial services go to developmentally disabled people. Cadieux continued to reject the NDP’s call for a moratorium on group home closures, and Woollard agrees. A moratorium would make the system too inflexible as it deals with rising demand, he said. He confirmed that 65 group homes have closed, leaving 700 more around the province. CLBC has a budget of more than $700 million, and a waiting list of 2,800 people seeking either new or increased service. Woollard said the government is aware of the demand, and CLBC’s estimate that it would cost $51 million to $65 million more to meet it all. Part of the demand can be met by providing service at lower cost, and it is up to the government to decide how much to increase the budget, he said.

B.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong gets his flu shot from pharmacist David Pavan at the B.C. legislature Monday.

Flu shot season starts Tom Fletcher Black Press

Doctors’ offices, clinics and pharmacies have begun the annual influenza vaccination program, which is free for seniors and children between six and 23 months old. Others eligible for the vaccine at no charge include health care and emergency workers, caregivers for seniors and children under two years old, pregnant women in their third trimester during winter flu season, aboriginal people and those who are very obese. Other B.C. residents not in high-risk groups can get a flu shot by paying a dispensing fee. The influenza vaccine is formulated each year to target the dominant strains of the respiratory virus that infects between 10 and 20 per cent of the population each year. The vaccine program was expanded in 2009 with the emergence of the H1N1 strain around the

world. With pharmacists trained to provide the injections, about 40 per cent of B.C. residents received the vaccine in the largest mass immunization in Canadian history. There were 55 deaths in B.C. related to H1N1, mostly of people with underlying medical conditions. Hundreds of people die each year from seasonal influenza. “Influenza vaccination is a great way to avoid infection with influenza viruses and to protect other, more vulnerable individuals,” said Dr. Perry Kendal, B.C.’s provincial health officer. “And of course, it is still important to follow basic hygiene practices, such as washing your hands and coughing into your sleeve, and staying home when you are feeling sick.” B.C. residents can find the nearest flu shot clinic by calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 or using the online B.C. flu clinic locator at

Standing in a doorway is passé. Running outside takes too long. The best way to protect yourself from falling objects in an earthquake is ducking under a desk or sturdy table, or crouching and protecting your head from impact until one minute after the shaking stops. Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond, Speaker Bill Barisoff, MLAs and staff interrupted the legislature session Thursday morning to demonstrate the latest strategy for responding to an earthquake. Schools, government offices and families around the province also participated. The “Great British Columbia Shakeout” is Canada’s largest earthquake exercise, with more than 500,000 people registered to take part. The drill was also held in Oregon, California and other U.S. states in the Pacific region where faults could produce a major earthquake at any time. “When an earthquake does occur, the ground will shake and jerk sideways, which creates sudden back-and-forth motions,” said Kelli Kryz-

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).
