Sidney asks neighbours to cost-share for local food bank Emma Prestwich News staff

The mayors of Central and North Saanich are uncomfortable with a suggestion by Sidney town council that they chip in to the Sidney Lions Food Bank. Sidney council approved a recommendation to send formal requests to both Central and “It provides a North Saanich counservice that benefits cils asking for ongoing donations toward the other two the food bank’s utility municipalities.” costs and a one-time contribution to help - Murray Clarke the organization move to its new location in Iroquois Park this fall. Both districts would be asked to annually toss in one-third of the bank’s utility costs, which are about $11,400 a year, and a one-time amount of $12,500 to cover a quarter of the moving cost. Central Saanich Mayor Jack Mar said he had not yet received a letter, but was unsure about the idea. “I’d have to give that some real thought,” he said. “I can see an up-front cost, but an ongoing cost, that would be a real issue for council.” The idea was informally brought up at the trimunicipal meeting in May. Plans to hold an open house dissolved because of logistical issues, according to a Sidney staff report. The idea of involving North and Central Saanich came from numbers that showed the food bank’s clients are evenly distributed between Sidney and the rest of the Peninsula, said Murray Clarke, Sidney chief administrative officer. As well, the Sidney area code also covers parts of Central and North Saanich, he said, so there may be even more users from the other districts. PLEASE SEE: Town gives food bank rent break, Page A5

While it can often be a struggle to choose one’s career, for Brentwood Bay resident, Jon Guthrie, his mind was made up after one tour of Victoria’s shipyards with a family friend. “During the tour, I was able to see multiple trades working together in one place,” explained Guthrie. “I saw what the sheet metal workers were doing and I thought ‘I’d like to do that’.” Guthrie’s interest in metal work began after the tour of the shipyards, but when he was younger, his father also did a stint as a sheet metal worker.

Subsequently, a lot of shows were cancelled because of it. The new ring, two years in the making and designed by a company in Maple Ridge, now has a sand base. Not the kind of sand you’d find at the beach, Dol says, but a special kind needed to handle the weight of jumping horses. She adds that this new ring is also easier to maintain. “This is huge, we never thought we’d get something like this,� said Rob MacGregor, operations manager for the fairgrounds.

In what police believe was a targeted incident, a Central Saanich home was invaded Aug. 25 by assailants searching for drugs and cash. At around 9:45 p.m., police responded to the 1200-block of Verdier Avenue after neighbours reported hearing a gunshot. A man was found unharmed in the apartment but restrained by the assailants. According to police, three men forced their way into the apartment, looking for money and drugs. Two of the men were armed and one blank round was fired. All three men fled the apartment soon after. By the time Central Saanich police and Sidney RCMP arrived in the area, the men had left. Police believe this was a targeted crime and the public is not at risk. An investigation by the Central Saanich Police Serious Crime Unit is ongoing. Police are urging anyone with information to call the Watch Commander at 250-6524441. Those with anonymous tips can call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Cash rewards up to $2,000 are available for tips that lead to a suspect’s arrest.

A troop of parishioners from Greater Victoria churches are making it easy for people to donate to local food banks. About 600 people will drop off bags at 12,000 addresses around the region beginning Sept. 14. They hope residents will fill the bags with non-perishable food to donate to food banks in the lead-up to Thanksgiving Day. “It’s important that, in this time, we as members of the community do something really tangible to support our citizens and families,” said Deborah Nohr, who is helping organize the food drive. This is the first Thanksgiving Turkey/Food drive in Greater Victoria. It started two years ago on the Lower Mainland. This year, five congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brought the

Guthrie’s metal work has silver finish Continued from Page A1

Farmer wasn’t surprised Guthrie did so well in the competition. “I know Camosun has a great program and I know that Jon had the highest mark in his class so it’s no surprise he finished well,” he said. Although obviously proud of Guthrie’s success in Charlottetown, Farmer and Associated Sheet Metal are no strangers to seeing their Camosun College apprentices succeed in the skill-

based competition. In 2007, the company turned out Casey Wilson who was crowned champion in the same competition. Guthrie, a husband and father to a two-year-old daughter, is now in his fourth and final year of apprenticeship. He began the Sheet Metal Worker program at Camosun College just over four years ago and since then, he’s completed the 30-week classroom course and is nearing the end of his hours required as an

apprentice. When completed, he will hold his Red Seal Journeyman certification. Guthrie hopes to one day take his skills in a more artistic direction and has already begun fabricating some art pieces in his spare time. “I love working with metal,” he said. “So my dream would be able to take it in my own direction somehow and fabricate both art pieces and functional pieces.” editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Emma Prestwich News staff

Although Sidney and New York City are on opposite sides of the continent, a Sidney councillor thinks the town is the perfect place for a plaque to remember the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks. “Everybody remembers where they were on that day,” said councillor Kenny Podmore. “Sidney being a little town with a very big heart, I felt it would be nice to commemorate this.” He plans to hold a simple unveiling on Sept. 11 at 1:30 p.m. by the visitors information centre in Bevan Park.

“It provides a service that benefits the other two municipalities,” said Clarke. Mar compared the request to a past suggestion, which was rejected, of cost-sharing for the Mary Winspear Centre, which is within Sidney town limits but used by the other two districts. “All communities have different functions. Communities make use of each others’ facilities all the time,” Mar said. North Saanich Mayor Alice Finall said council is already looking at budget items for next year, so any donations would be for 2012. She also questioned whether council would support the idea, but said she needs more information first. Both she and Mar said they would prefer to receive the letter and exact numbers before mak-

ing a decision. “I’d love to mull that over,” Mar said. But Central Saanich councillor Terry Siklenka said he supports the idea in principle. “I think the food bank is an excellent resource,” he said. “If it comes before council, I’d definitely consider it.” Although the letter recived some support at Monday’s council meeting, Central Saanich deferred Sidney’s request to its 2012 grant-in-aid process. Sidney council also passed a motion to eliminate nearly all of the food bank’s rent, reducing it from $6,000 to $1, beginning Jan. 1, 2012. Clarke said it didn’t make sense to charge rent to the organization, which serves the community on a volunteer basis. news@peninsulanewsreview.com

OUR VIEW

Celebrating labour’s contribution to B.C. There is a history to this long weekend that has been lost for many people in this generation. The first weekend of September is more than just the last chance to enjoy a little free time in the summer. And there’s definitely more to Labour Day than a final chance to hit the mall for another back to school sale. Then there’s the ongoing drama involving the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the Ministry of Education. The dispute has some questioning whether the teachers’ unions have the best interests of our kids at heart. After all, if the education system is disrupted, the hardest hit won’t be the folks in government who make the rules that the teachers are fighting against. To be fair, every indication suggests the BCTF has taken into account the affects on classrooms of any job action. When kids go back to school next, they should be oblivious that their teachers are even partaking in a dispute. That’s the way it should be. The labour movement has come a long way from the days when workers were little more than pawns for people with capital. Over the centuries, hard-fought movements have entrenched rights such as reasonable work weeks, guaranteed vacation days and proper safety standards. In many ways, the labour movement forced the hand of companies to ensure they adopted better management. Isn’t that what unions are — a way for workers to have a say in how they’re managed? These days, the labour movement still serves a vital role as a counterbalance to market forces. Free enterprise and laissezfaire capitalism have been invaluable to our economies and helped ensure our governments are healthy enough to provide so many of the things the population demands. But the labour movement has also enriched our province, both by ensuring a better life for individual British Columbians and by forcing industry to find the benefits of a more dynamic workforce. Happy, well-balanced employees are a resource that anyone can see is something worth fighting for. What do you think?

Readers touched by writer’s ode to Jack Layton Re: Layton’s dedication was inspiring (Comment, Aug. 26)

Layton’s Toronto activism stands out to letter-writer Reading her words, I was overjoyed at Charla Huber’s reflections. That a young woman can show such sensitivity and perception augers well for this generation and our collective future. I count it a personal privilege to have known and worked with Jack Layton during those turbulent years in the 70s and 80s in Toronto. We were fellow activists and fought in many of the same political

trenches around important community issues. One in particular stands out — the fight to save the Toronto Island homes and community from the voracious appetite of developers and their city hall operatives. We won that fight due in no small measure to the consistent work of Jack and other leaders. He had integrity and a tenacious spirit to build a more compassionate and caring community. Like Ms. Huber I mourned his untimely death and joined fellow citizens to salute his life. Thank you Charla Huber for your lovely tribute. Dale Perkins Victoria

Readers respond: Foghorns serve an important purpose It’s been roughly eight years since the Coast Guard silenced most of the foghorns on our West Coast lighthouses to save $75,000 per year. Of course, the main reason they used to justify this move was the increasingly widespread use of GPS devices. But this same Coast Guard still feels it’s necessary to have all their visual aids to navigation in place to this day, and, presumably, well into the future. They maintain their system of day markers, cardinal buoys, lighthouses, etc. So, on the one hand they seem to be saying that regardless of GPS usage, it is necessary to have these aids to navigation in place. (A position I agree with.) On the other hand, they

Many memorials show Canada’s love for late NDP leader

Column captured true essence of Jack Layton

Thank you for your view on Jack Layton. As I listened to the many testimonials on the CBC I, too, thought, this is beyond politics. No opposition to lash out against his humane proposals. Perhaps Jack’s legacy will wake us up to all we have lost: a Canada that cared for its own and for other countries. A Canada for peace, not war. A country for housing, not jails. May you live on in our future, Jack. Joanna Wilkinson Victoria

Charla Huber’s incisive column captured the meaning of Jack. She helped tilt the see-saw toward renewed credibility for political representation. Anyone who has seen the charming “Mouseland” tale on YouTube knows what inspired Jack. The vintage classic video animation shows us why everybody has a political voice. Jack knew that ordinary Canadians could make the meaning of “Mouseland” come true. Larry Wartel Victoria

foghorns, teacher bargaining

appear to say these aids are only necessary when visibility is good. When visibility drops and the fog rolls over you so fast you think someone stole the bow of your boat, you’re supposed to rely on your GPS and only your GPS. Wouldn’t it be beneficial to have navigation aids available when you can’t see where you’re going? Obviously, they’d have to be signals that are heard rather than seen — in a word, foghorns. Their distinctive sound would help confirm your location and would also avoid collisions in the fog, in this case with the land. I spoke to a lightkeeper years ago and he said they fought the removal of the foghorns and they would welcome their return. Now that the government has indicated that staffed lighthouses are here to stay, I’d like to see, or

hear, those lightkeepers turn on the foghorns again whenever the fog drops in. It’s an inexpensive way to keep this foggy coast safer. Glen Farrough Tofino

Teachers have kids in mind during bargaining For the second time this summer I am disturbed by the bargaining (or lack thereof) between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association. Both stories I have read have been grossly imbalanced and paint an unjust picture of B.C. teachers. Tom Fletcher’s coverage quotes BCPSEA bargaining bulletins and covers their

Letters to the Editor

position for six paragraphs but dedicates only one sentence to BCTF president Susan Lambert. According to Fletcher’s article, the teachers have tabled four demands, all related to salary. For your information, here are some direct quotes from the teachers’ bargaining bulletin: “Teachers’ top priorities include: improving teaching and learning conditions (class size and composition, caseloads, learning specialist ratios, and time for class preparation), a fair and reasonable compensation package including benefit improvements commensurate with teachers across Canada (B.C. teachers are the fourth lowest paid in the country), and a return to local bargaining as the best solution to local issues. “Premier Clark has an

opportunity to make her ‘families first’ agenda real by restoring funding to schools and services to students this September. After a decade of deteriorating conditions, students should come back to school as beneficiaries of the ruling that restores teachers’ bargaining rights and funding levels to make up for the $275 million which was cut every year since 2002.” It seems teachers do have the kids’ interests in mind. Let’s make sure that the people who do an invaluable service to our society are appreciated and respected accordingly. Bargaining involves two parties — the least we can do is educate ourselves about both sides of an issue before passing judgment. Lara Kremler Victoria

House tour showcases dream homes Jennifer Blyth Black Press

When Dave and Halina Mitton saw their Cordova Bay property in spring 2008, it was clear that any home they built had to embrace the breathtaking view to the ocean. “This is what we saw,” says Dave, looking out at the ocean. “There was nothing like that in Vancouver.” The couple turned to the architectural talents of Nigel Banks and interior designer Ines Hanl, of the Sky is the Limit Design, whose vision was crafted by Paul and Pat Cullen. The essential wishlist? “We wanted it to be comfortable and to fit the location,” Dave says during a tour of the West Coast/ Craftsman-style home. Main-floor living was also important to the retired college teachers, who spend the majority of their time in the openconcept downstairs living area. Here, custom-stained oak floors lead the eye throughout, while creative ceiling treatments differentiate the kitchen, dining and living rooms, all oriented toward Haro Strait. Vast windows soak

in the view and the morning sun, while French doors open to the roomy patio and steps to the beach. Upstairs are three guest rooms, a media room and roomy play area perfect for visiting grandchildren. A few unique details that make the home special include a custom raised dog shower in the laundry room, complete with a ramp to help the family’s older Labrador in for a bath, and a granite slab turned on its end as a sleek fireplace surround, its colours reflecting the ocean beyond, while the vertical stria-

tions offer illusion of smoke rising from a fire, Dave says. The Mittons’ home is one of six custom designs on next Sunday’s Art Gallery of Greater Victoria House Tour, which also includes a family-friendly live/work home and a Belgianinspired Uplands estate. Custom design features include a one-ofa-kind underground showcase for collector cars complete with auto elevator. A visit to each home offers the opportunity to watch one of Victoria’s finest artists at work. This year’s line-up features painters Adelle Andrew, Robert Amos, Nixie Barton and Grant Leier, Manon Elder, Joan Pattee and Blu Smith as well as ceramic artist Sam Dickie. “People are encouraged to purchase their tickets for House Tour 2011 early, as this popular fundraiser sells out quickly,” said event chair Joan Huzar. Tickets are $40 and are on sale now at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria on Moss Street, Peninsula Gallery in Sidney and all three Garden Works locations. As an added bonus this year each ticket purchased can be used for two-for-one admission at the AGGV.

Peninsula-raised Tyler Carson and Nick Drummond perform at Hermann’s Jazz Club.

Local fiddler returns to roots Former Peninsula performer Tyler Carson will make music with Nick Drummond. The former Kid Carson member will perform tonight in Victoria. “The sound we are creating is unlike anything you might expect from a violin, guitar and voice duo,” Carson said. “Between the two of us we are creating sometimes symphonic sized sound, sometimes eerily otherworldly sound and all from two acoustic instruments.” The pair perform Friday Sept 2, 8 p.m. at Hermann’s Jazz club, 753 View Street. Tickets are $12 available at the door. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Traditional music raises cash to feed those in need A musical feast for the ears will be showcased in support of the Victoria Rainbow Kitchen, a nonprofit group that provides meals to low-income earners throughout the year. Ensemble Laude, a Saanich-based women’s choir that specializes in singing medieval and multicultural choral repertoire and early music, takes the spotlight at St. George the Martyr Anglican Church, 3909 St. George’s Ln. in Cadboro Bay, on Sept. 10 at 2:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.

COPS FOR CANCER/ TOUR DE ROCK SPIN CHALLENGE

An emotional ride

Port Alberni Mountie wells up while explaining his reasons for joining Tour de Rock

All proceeds for this event will be directed to the annual “Cops for Cancer” fundraising drive.

Tom Gill is a mix of emotions as he pauses during a weekend training ride, his bright blue and yellow Spandex cycling outfit a contrast to the dull green of his rural surroundings. He can’t help grinning as he talks about how psyched he is to be riding in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. But the grin quickly fades and tears threaten as he talks about his motivation. It’s the kids. “I’m as soft as they come; kids win,” he says. “The first people I’m interested in all the time are the kids.” Special feature The Tour de Black Press Rock is a gruelling, newspapers on two-week bicycle Vancouver Island tour that happens will publish this every September special feature page and October on spotlighting police Vancouver Island. officers taking part in Law enforcement this year’s Canadian officers and media Cancer Society members embark on Cops for Cancer the journey to raise Tour de Rock. awareness and funds for research into pediatric cancers. This year there are 22 riders who will start out in Port Alice on Sept. 24 and wrap up their Island-wide trip Oct. 7 in Victoria. Gill is an RCMP constable in the traffic division at the Port Alberni detachment. He and the rest of the Tour de Rock team were presented to the public on May 14, but those who had applied have been training since last March in the hopes they would be chosen. A relatively new member to the force – he graduated from RCMP Depot in Regina, Sask. in September 2008 – Gill put his name in for the Tour the first year he was on the force, then trained for a while in his second year. He knew because Port Alberni’s detachment is so small that only one rider could be chosen per year, and last year was not to be his. He was willing to wait. Port Alberni was Gill’s first posting in the RCMP, and he loves living and working here. He started out in general duty and in May switched to the traffic division. He attended a function where Laurel

Port Alberni RCMP Const. Tom Gill prepares to ride in the 2011 Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. He’s trying to raise $25,000. Middelaer spoke about the tragic death of her four-year-old daughter Alexa, killed by a drunk driver in Ladner. Middelaer’s words were powerful, he says. “It’s a focus of mine to take impaired drivers off the road. You can make a difference in a family’s future by making the road safe,” he says. He also wants to make a difference in the fight against cancer. “I believe our youth that are going through this, if we can cure them, they will be our leaders.”

Gill is paired with a junior rider, Brett Wasylyniuk, a young boy from the Alberni Valley who has rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer found in the connective tissue between muscles and bones. He hasn’t spent too much time with Wasylyniuk, though: the boy has been away receiving treatment. To support Gill in his tour, go online to www.copsforcancerbc.ca and follow the links to his personal page. Or support any one of the fundraisers listed elsewhere on this page. editor@albernivalleynews.com
