Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre asks for cash to give Sidney new label

Christine van Reeuwyk/News staff

The Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre will seek a cash infusion from the Town of Sidney to implement a four-pronged focus. The Peninsula aquarium that says it ranks third in Island attractions behind Butchart Gardens and the Royal B.C. Museum celebrated its two year anniversary in June and is building a plan for growth. “We see the centre as needing to take a leadership role in promoting Sidney,” said executive director Angus Matthews. “We are expected to be an economic generator in the community.” The marine centre drew 287,000 visitors through its doors and into the downtown core over the past 30 months. Matthews said 53 per cent of visitors came from Vancouver Island and a quarter came with people who live in the area. “The message we’ve taken is tourists aren’t strangers; they’re friends and family of locals.” Along with the just over $42,000 grant from the town each year – the same as the previous marine ecology centre – they’ll seek $37,500 to add to a $60,000 budget from SODC to start marketing Sidney as the gateway to the Salish Sea. “We need to do more to promote Sidney as a family destination,” Matthews said. Their approach includes four initiatives: branding; destination marketing regionally, nationally and internationally; added programming; and a focus on community quality of life issues. A community branding process started last year and in the next two months, those working on branding, including Matthews, will finish up discussions with businesses on the Peninsula and plan to ask the public for input.

Time to dig out your snow shovels

Property owners should be ready if the snow predicted today materializes. In order to keep neighbourhoods from becoming treacherous, residents in Central Saanich are asked to clear adjacent walkways of snow and ice

within 24 hours. In Sidney, the town plans to keep major arterial and collector streets open and to clear snow and ice from as many local streets as possible, particularly downtown. Snow and ice will be cleared from the sidewalks at intersections and bus stops,

with general priority given to locations serving higher pedestrian volumes. Residents however, should clear snow and ice from the sidewalk in front of or abutting their property or face a possible fine of $75. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

African girls sport Peninsula colours Soccer sides in Ethiopia, Uganda benefit from donated jerseys, shorts Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Peninsula soccer uniforms are running up and down fields in two African countries. “The conditions that they play in is a lot different than what I’m used to,” said Cassie Byron. The 17-year-old soccer player saw girls running along the rocky ground wearing no shoes. Sticks in the ground marked the goal posts. The eye-opener came during Cassie’s first humanitarian aid trip with her grandmother, Sidney Rotary member Judy Byron. Judy’s recruited Cassie a number of times for local Rotary volunteering and always promised a humanitarian trip anywhere in the world – when she was older. Now in Grade 12 at Parkland secondary, Cassie joined a national polio immunization tour in Ethiopia that went hut to hut doling out polio drops. “I loved being with the kids, that was my favourite thing,” Cassie said of the polio clinic. “The kids were just so excited we were there, they were so energetic. They were running with two casts on their legs, kicking a ball around.” The Byrons also dropped off soccer balls for a pair of girls schools and soccer uniforms donated by the Peninsula Soccer Association to schools in Uganda and Ethiopia.

The Gulu public school girls’ soccer team win the championship in Uganda wearing Peninsula colours. submitted photo

“The girls don’t play sports at all in that [Ethiopian] system, so this is a beginning, for them, of a sports program,” Judy Byron said. Peninsula soccer donated 150 jerseys and 50 pairs of shorts. “Traditionally, girls do not play team sports in Ethiopia. Our uniforms are the first step in this process,” said Bob Hope of Peninsula soccer. “We look forward to receiving pictures of our uniforms making headlines in Addis Ababa,” the capital of Ethiopia. In Uganda, Byron presented the jerseys and

shorts to Siong Ng who is associated with the Gulu public school girls’ soccer team and some were donned immediately for the championship game against the Kasubi primary school. “The girls love their new uniforms and got many good compliments from the crowd. They got the championship trophy,” Ng wrote in an email. “Most of them will go on to play [with] their new teams with their secondary schools with football scholarships. Thanks to [Peninsula soccer] and Rotary International.” reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

place.” Through Hearts of the Community, Beacon Community Services and the Peninsula News Review will jointly honour outstanding volunteers in six categories, including service to seniors and service to children and families. An outstanding youth volunteer will receive a $1,000 scholarship. People are encouraged to nominate candidates by Jan. 30. Beacon Community Services board chair Bob Cronin noted vol-

unteers are sometimes reluctant to step into the limelight. “They work out of the goodness of their heart, not because they expect a reward,” he said. “Still, it seems only right for the community to thank them. And by accepting a Hearts nomination, they also focus attention on their particular project and on the importance of volunteerism – they may even serve as a model, or inspiration, for others to get involved in our community.”

Hearts of the Community nomination forms are online at www. beaconcs.ca, at the Peninsula News Review office, at 9843 Second St., at any Beacon Community Services’ Peninsula thrift store, the Shoal Activity Centre or at Beacon Community Services, at 9860 Third St. All nominees will be honoured at a special community ceremony and luncheon on Feb. 16. The event, including lunch, is free to the community. Complimentary tickets will be available soon – watch the Peninsula News Review for details. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Arts start flowing for sculpture walk

Mayor Larry Cross and Coun. Marilynn Loveless will be the council portion of the new Sidney Sculpture Walk acceptance committee. They’ll be joined by Richard Paquette, Sue Meyer, Grant Rogers, Larry Hanlon, Lisa Makar, Ryan Labelle, Diane Thorp, J.C. Scott, Aaron Bremner and support from town staff in selecting artwork for the proposed Sidney art walk. Already 26 artists have submitted work for the project launched by the Town of Sidney and the Saanich Peninsula Community Arts Council in September. The project will see sculptures added along two kilometres of the seaside walkway starting at the foot of Beacon Avenue. Follow the progress at sculpturewalk.ca.

Recruiting a leader

Last Monday night, Jan. 9, marked the final council meeting for Murray Clarke, chief administrative officer for the town. Council earmarked $23,500 plus personal expenses for Waterhouse Executive Search to find a replacement.

The upcoming renovation of the Sidney public works yard will be done by WJ Murphy Contracting. Council awarded the tender for building foundations, door installation, interior improvements and electrical upgrades. WJ Murphy came in at $518,896 for the work that has a $1.1 million budget. The town previously awarded C&W Campbell Homes $297,196 to supply and erect steel buildings onto completed foundations.

Complimentary tea, cookies and Rogers’ chocolates served at 1:45 pm in the lobby.

My African violets inside seem to like being here, growing large and producing a few flowers. Talking about flowers, although there was a request for no gifts on my birthday, there were two large and lovely bouquets left without cards at my birthday party. Thank you, thank you.

Floaters

Little black spots, bugs and spider webs, … Optometrists hear these descriptions of floaters on a daily basis. What are floaters? The majority of the eyeball is filled with a jellylike substance known as vitreous. The vitreous is surrounded by the retina, the thin layer of the eye which contains the light receptor cells. The retina is like the film of a camera and is essential for sight. The vitreous is attached to the retina at a number of points within the eye. As we age the vitreous tends to condense, shrink and become less transparent. Little globs of dense gel floating around cast small shadows on the back of the eye. Those shadows are what we perceive as floaters. Over time all of us will have some of these floaters. However, not all floaters are this innocent. As the vitreous shrinks it tugs at the retina. This tugging can occasionally tear the retina and subsequently cause a retinal detachment. When a detachment occurs, vision can only be saved by prompt medical intervention to repair and reattach the retina. If you experience a sudden onset of new floaters, flashes of light, a shadow or curtain in your vision, or a sudden decrease in your vision, seek advice immediately. Don’t wait a few days to see if the symptoms decrease. If the shadow or curtain occurs on a weekend, go to Emergency. Retinal detachment is painless but serious. Your optometrist can help distinguish between normal vitreous changes and situations which require immediate referral to a medical specialist. Routine eye examinations are a great way to maintain good eye health.

‘Explosion’ prompts call to firefighters Central Saanich fire is often in the education business, as was the case Friday night. Around 5 p.m. on Friday the 13th, the fire department was called for an explosion near West Saanich and Marchant roads. Turns out a resident doing some backyard burning used an accelerant. When he lit the match, it went kaboom. The resident was burning outside of regulations, so the fire was allowed to peter out and Central Saanich fire went over burning bylaws with the resident.

Correction The photo titled Solemn occasion (News, Jan. 11) should have stated Sidney firefighters attended a memorial ceremony for fallen firefighter Daniel Botkin in Enderby.

OUR VIEW

Info was needed from the start For a team so interested in seeing the Sandown proposal become reality, it’s surprising North Saanich staff didn’t put all the cards on the table earlier. Before the New Year, four councillors – Dunstan Browne, Conny McBride, Craig Mearns and Ted Daly – cried “show me the money” to get an idea of what the whole deal might cost the municipality. Prior, staff had assembled a business case, but it didn’t outline what kinds of costs taxpayers would incur to do the deal. Turns out, the number approaches $700,000, according to staff, who add they’ve padded that number with contingency dollars. Some councillors, though, namely Browne and Mearns, worry the final number could be higher. In any municipality, it’s vital that council is fully informed before making a decision. In this case, the information presented at the Dec. 12 meeting wasn’t enough, prompting councillors to ask for more. It delayed the process, much to the dismay of the deal’s supporters. In a June 2011 public meeting, residents told the council of the day they were optimistic about the deal, but wanted to see a business plan and didn’t want to subsidize farming activities. Today, some are complaining the deal feels it is being rushed. The sentiment could have been avoided had the information sought by the public been compiled months ago and presented before the Jan. 9 committee of the whole meeting. It would have given council more time to mull the risks, and time for the public to give their opinion of the costs involved. On Nov. 30, the News Review published an editorial that recommended the land stay in the ALR. On Jan. 11, we ran another recommending some land be sliced off for development, for the sake of cost recovery. The costs make a significant difference to opinions on the matter. The responsibility wasn’t all on staff – council has the duty to direct staff to gather such information. Perhaps it was the pending election, which dominated October and part of November, or maybe it was an oversight. Opening the books on these costs in crunch time isn’t doing the proposal’s timeline any favours. What do you think?

battle closely. A Kinder Morgan representative provided the following information about tanker traffic from their Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby. In 2011 there were 32 tankers loaded at Westridge, down from 69 in 2010. Demand varies widely (there were no tankers in 2000) and current traffic is similar to what went out of Burrard Inlet in the 1970s. Contrary to popular belief, there is not yet a major surge to Asia. For every 10 ships that load at Westridge, on average eight sail to California, one to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries, and only one to Asia. Current Port Metro Vancouver rules allow Aframax-class tankers (80,000 to 119,000 dead weight tons) to pass under the Lions Gate and Second Narrows bridges, but they can’t take on a full load. That would require dredging in Second Narrows, which would increase general shipping safety as well as capacity. Kinder Morgan has not yet formally applied to twin the Trans Mountain line. If it does expand its priceless right of way, the capacity would be greater than the Enbridge proposal. One way or another, that oil will move. The professional environmentalist gong show over Enbridge is still to come. More on that next week.

PENINSULA NEWS NEWS REVIEW REVIEW -Wednesday, -Wednesday, January January 18, 18, 2012 2012  PENINSULA

LETTERS Mixed emotions from residents still simmer on Sandown Like it or not, this is a business deal and Mr. Randall, I am sure, realizes this proposal is the best for him, but not for residents of North Saanich. He knows selling some of those front parcels will be very difficult and his cost for cleanup of the whole parcel will be significant, which is why this needs to be reviewed further. I challenge North Saanich taxpayers to turn on their computers and review the ALC report and find a place where it states that we will have class A1 land at the end of this endeavour. I hope council will look at this from all sides and not get caught up in the frenzy to save a race track posing as farm land. L. Jack Saanichton

I am very glad North Saanich is having a sober second look at the Sandown proposal. Here are a few things I feel need to be considered. A shaky business plan was made for the commercial part, but was extremely lacking in the ALR part. Land can be a gift, but can become a lead weight if there is no practical and financially sound use for it. The environmental costs scare me as they are upfront costs of which we would have no idea the full amount. A small community such as North Saanich would find it difficult to bear considering the current financial pressures. Besides, I feel this is owner Bill Randall’s responsibility, not that of the taxpayers and residents of North Saanich.

Readers respond: Give down-the-middle Summer Market a chance Re: Summer Market stuck in the middle (News, Jan. 11) The article says 48 signatures against the current Thursday night market setup, but to be specific that’s 48 business owners on Beacon Avenue, not 48 random passersby willing to sign a petition. These are the people who make up each individual disc in the backbone of our little town. Also Edward Connor says “it would be a logistical nightmare” for booths to get set up, but that’s not if they dump their loads on the sidewalks and go find a car parking spot (ironically, just like they do now). Then, when the road is clear, they can move their tables and tents from the sidewalk and set them up on the street. If you have a piece too heavy to lift, special accommodations could be made for those few special needs booths, where once the street is closed, a car could bring the heavy load in, guided by a volunteer. Despite the Sidney Business Association’s claims that the market can’t operate in any other configuration, it seems it can. Why

��� When asked how many in the crowd of more than 400 people at the Friends of Sandown Community Farm information meeting last Wednesday were in favour of the proposal, an overwhelming majority raised their hands. Dozens spoke in favour and only three raised possible objections -- two of them prefacing their concerns by saying they are in favour of the proposal. One even said, “I think everyone is.” Councillors Ted Daly and Dunstan Browne preface their remarks in council with similar statements of support for the Sandown proposal before voting against any actions that would move it forward in a meaningful way. They also speak in opposition to a covenant that would set

Cartoon didn’t get a laugh from one reader Your cartoon from Jan. 11 (B.C.’s tough new DUI laws) was mildly funny. Obviously, the cartoonist is from that segment of society that regards tougher enforcement as a cash grab by government. Clearly, she has not yet been impacted (pun intended) by an impaired driver. Lessons have to be learned somehow, if you cannot figure them out for yourself. Maybe one day, the artist will lose someone near and dear to an impaired driver. If that happens, and it may, the next cartoon will not be very funny at all. Brian Shepherd Sidney

Cyclists should pay to maintain Peninsula roads I think the time has come for the

Financial theft may be tied to stolen UVic banking info Kyle Slavin News staff

Saanich police on Monday confirmed fraudsters took money directly out of the bank account of at least one University of Victoria employee. They say the financial theft, worth thousands of dollars, is associated with the theft of a storage device that contained the social insurance numbers and banking info for 11,841 UVic employees, past and present. “It shows that whoever is in possession of this information does either have some knowledge in how to use it to their advantage, or knows who to pass it on to that might have knowledge to do these kinds of frauds,” Sgt. Dean Jantzen said. Two other cases of fraud

reported to police are believed to be linked to the theft, but detectives are still investigating. “I think this is likely to get worse for us before it starts to stabilize,” Jantzen said. “It’d be foolish to say otherwise.” All the cases appear to have originated online, police said, noting that will make investigating these cases more challenging. The best way for current and former UVic employees to minimize risk is to heed the advice of the university: contact your bank and contact the credit bureaus to put a flag on your account in the event of any credit application. On Friday, the university announced it would pay to have one year of credit monitoring services provided to any

employee who requests it. Though the service is worth $150 per person, the university will be getting a discounted rate, through agreements with credit bureaus Equifax and Trans Union. The paid monitoring service provides users with alerts to any changes in their credit, updated credit reports, ongoing monitoring, identity theft insurance and access to fraud prevention experts. Questions and concerns should be directed to the University of Victoria at 250-472-4333, or to your financial institution. Anyone with information on the break-in or fraud is asked to contact Saanich police at 250475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. kslavin@saanichnews.com

“We really need to invite all sectors,” Matthews said. “We see Sidney as the capital of the Peninsula.” Input from residents and businesses across the Peninsula need to be considered, he said. “Branding isn’t just about slogans and logos. It’s about values you represent. You can’t promise stuff you can’t deliver.” Destination marketing would also be diverse. “We see the first market as the 360,000 people who live in the [Capital region],” Matthews said. A larger goal is to see the Salish Sea have name recognition like Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. “Gulf Islands National Park is one of the great secrets of the West Coast.” Sidney would be the gateway. “We think we can claim that identity,” Matthews said. SODC is already working at expanding programming outside the building at the base of Beacon Avenue to span the Gulf Islands. He said the Peninsula will also see the long-contemplated trolley become a reality. It would be a shuttle connecting the major destinations including the aquarium, Town of Sidney, Butchart Gardens, Brentwood Bay and both local Washington State and B.C. ferry terminals. The fourth need to focus on community is one of creating inclusivity. SODC has a group of 160 volunteers that begins at age 11 and a staff that includes First Nations members. The aquarium has taken “inclusive steps” including having a small group of elders that advises the centre as it teaches visitors about the Salish Sea. It’s a good starting place for building on a relationship that exists with First Nations in the area, Matthews said. The Town of Sidney’s finance committee will discuss the $37,500 funding request in advance of the budget in February. “The centre is prepared to allocate $60,000 to this initiative,” Matthews said. “If there isn’t money behind good ideas, they’re just good ideas.” reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Sidney Members of the Sidney Rotary Club.

The Rotary Club of Sidney was chartered on Aug.14, 1946. Since it was formed, the club has sponsored the formation of three other clubs, the Salt Spring Island Rotary Club, the Brentwood Rotary Club and the Sidney by the Sea Rotary Club. The Sidney Rotary Club is a dinner club, which meets at the Glen Meadows Golf Course every Wednesday, at 6:30 p.m. The club has been involved in many local and international projects, along with providing scholarships and youth training opportunities for the youth in the area. The following are some examples of our participation in both the community and abroad. On the international front, the Rotary Club of Sidney has provided funds for clean water projects in many Central and South American towns and villages. We have purchased more than 100 EcoKalan stoves for a Habitat for Humanity project near Dumageti City in the Philippines. At home, the Rotary Club of Sidney has been very active in the community. The Saanich Fair has been operating for more than 130 years. Our club has been involved with the fair since 1953, when the club oversaw most of the operation of the Saanich Fair. We brought the first children’s rides to the fair along with establishing the children’s games and games of chance for the adults. The operation of the children’s games and games of chance is the major fundraiser for the club each year. This year the Rotary Club of Sidney purchased a defibrillator for the Mary Winspear Centre. Sidney Rotarians were also involved in staffing the Salvation Army Kettles this Christmas season. Sidney Rotary operated the most successful blood donor clinic in the province for more than 40 years. Our club helped build the non-profit Wakefield Manor, the Rotary baseball park, adjacent to the Victoria airport and the original bandstand at the end of Beacon Avenue. In the past few years the club provided the Town of Sidney

with a town clock on Beacon Avenue, established the Heart Smart Walk along the Sidney waterfront, assisted the North Saanich fire department purchase two thermal imaging cameras for firefighting safety, purchased the first set of jaws of life for the Sidney fire department, paid for the printing of a fundraising cookbook to assist Jeneece Edroff in her goal to raise funds for B.C. children with special needs and assisted at the Shoal Centre by rebuilding a fence. Our club also collaborated with the Brentwood and Sidney by the Sea Rotary clubs to provide furnishings for the palliative care unit at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital and most recently, contributed to the purchase of laparoscopic equipment for their new operating room. The youth in our community hold the key to our future, and the Rotary Club of Sidney has been very active in this area. We provide two $1,000 scholarships each year for graduating students from Parkland and Stelly’s secondary schools to further their education in British Columbia. Each year we send a student to Ottawa as part of Rotary’s Adventures in Citizenship to learn about our country and how its government operates; a student to the Rotary Youth Leadership Assembly in Tacoma, Washington to help build confidence and leadership abilities; and to Adventures in Technology in Saskatchewan to learn about careers in the technical field of science and industry. Along with the Sidney by the Sea and Brentwood Rotary clubs, our members also assisted in presenting the junior achievement program at Parkland school in 2009 and have donated library books to the local elementary schools. In September of 2011, the Rotary Club of Sidney will be sending a Rotary youth exchange student out for a one year cultural exchange. We will also be happily accepting a student from the program into our community.

The Four-Way Test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions: • Is it the truth? • Is it fair to all concerned? • Will it build goodwill and better friendships? • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

The Brentwood Bay Rotary Club turns 31 this year. It was chartered on Oct. 3, 1981. Originally the club met at the old Brentwood Bay Inn as a dinner club, but moved to the Waddling Dog Hotel, where it still meets on Tuesdays, but now at noon. Being a small club with just 21 members, all members know each other and the meetings are relaxed and fun. A variety of speakers and presentations provide both education and information. Our major fundraising event is the Saanich fall fair, where the club runs a concession, affectionately called the Sugar Shack. Over the Labour Day weekend all of our members, their spouses, family and friends pitch in to sell candy floss, snow cones, hot dogs, and soft ice cream. In November and December we sell poinsettias. This year we are planning a new and exciting fundraising event in the spring. These events provide us with funds to support our international and local projects. The club is currently involved with Garry Brooks of the African Community Project to assist in the economic and social development of the people in a small community just outside the city of Lusaka in Zambia. For the last nine years, Garry Brooks and the African Community Project have been involved in helping communities, through education and example, demonstrating how villages can improve their health and living standards. This project will see the construction of a tree nursery and the germination of 12,000 seedlings and the planting of 12,000 trees, plus the supply of some basic school equipment, and supplying and distributing mosquito nets, digging a well and upgrading sanitation facilities. The planting of 12,000 trees will be the first step in establishing a community forest with the resulting firewood and charcoal industry, helping to bring economic prosperity, and in the long term, self-sustaining economic independence to the community. The supplying of mosquito nets, clean water and better sanitation will dramatically improve the health of the community and reduce child deaths. During the last Rotary year, we completed a clean water and educational project in Orit, la Villa de San Antonia, Honduras. This involved constructing a reservoir and gravity feed pipeline,

to provide the village with clean, safe drinking water. The Club Rotario Comayagua, in Honduras, assisted us by overseeing and monitoring the project. Prior to this project, we had partnered with the Harbourside Rotary Club, to provide water to the village of El Espino, in Honduras. Over the years the club has funded a clean water and educational project in Orit, la Villa de San Antonia, Honduras, provided funds to build water wells in Kitogata, Uganda, and northern India, a girls dormitory in Katesh, Tanzania, provided an emergency generator for Mengo Hospital, in Kampala, Uganda, as well as supporting National Immunization Days world wide to eradicate polio. Through the organization Project Unity, a coalition of Greater Victoria Rotary clubs, our members provide micro loans and Kids Kits for AIDS orphans, and assist with funding their projects. Last year we provided funds for the SenseABILITY project, which provides a kit for parents of sight impaired children, enabling them to start teaching literacy skills to the children, before they start school. A recent book drive initiated by a member produced 1,500 new and gently used books to be shipped to countries in need, to start libraries for children. The club provides manpower and financial support for the Terry Fox Run and Brentwood Bay Days, as well as awarding the Darcy Lazarz Scholarship at Stelly’s secondary school annually. Locally the club supports the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, and has contributed funds for new hospital equipment and the palliative care unit, as well as the Mount Newton Centre. Sluggett House received an emergency generator, to provide for the comfort and safety or the residents during power outages. We have enabled a hoop court to be built in Chatterton Park, so the local teens have a place to shoot hoops. A donation to Sea Change, a local environmental group, planted eelgrass in the Saanich Inlet. These are just a few of the many projects the club has done over the last 30 years.

We are always on the lookout for new projects and members, so if Service Above Self interests you, please contact us: club president Jock Halliday at 250-544-1120.

Viking Air staff could strike Thursday as labour negotiations drag on

REVIEW

Strike deadline is noon tomorrow for workers at Viking Air. Many staff at the aircraft manufacturer near the airport are members of the Canadian Autoworkers Union which issued 72 hour strike notice Monday. The workers at Viking Air voted 94 per cent in favour of strike action last October. “We’re going to work hard in bargaining this week to reach a fair deal as a strike at Viking Air will completely disrupt production and further delay deliveries of many new Twin Otter aircraft that are already behind schedule,” said Gavin McGarrigle, CAW national representative. The current collective agreement expired Oct. 31, 2010. CAW Local 114 represents 270 workers at Viking Air including aircraft mechanics, machinists, sheet metal mechanics, painters, welders, stores persons and labourers.

Veenesh Dubois will bring her fringe-winning Under the Mango Tree to the Charlie White Theatre. Under the Mango Tree is a one-woman show that debuted at the 2009 Vancouver Theatrical Fringe Festival. Written by and starring Dubois, it played to sold out shows and competed against nearly 70 other shows to win Pick of the Fringe. Timal is a precocious girl who relishes her life under the mango tree. She misses her mother, but still has her grandmother and her beloved Bappu, her father, who she waits excitedly for at the end of each workday. Then, one day, Bappu tells Timal that he is leaving for Canada, a far off country where he will try to build a better life for them both. Timal cannot go, but Bappu promises to write. Through the letters the audiences sees Canada from afar, as a land of hope and home to an alien culture. Under the Mango Tree plays at the Charlie White Theatre on Jan. 22 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 available online at www.mary winspear.ca or at the box office 250-656-0275.

Panthers call up young netminder after cut

Richard Hyde photo

Panthers captain Jake Bryan wheels through the neutral zone before sliding past Generals defenceman Garrett Kemmler in VIJHL hockey action last Friday at Panorama.

With the standings in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League becoming ever so tight, the Peninsula Panthers dug in their claws and split a pair of games. Friday evening in front of the home faithful, the club wasted no time getting the Oceanside Generals to stand at attention tallying three unanswered goals in the first 20 minutes of play. The Panthers never looked back, winning 5-3. Joe Densmore gave the Panthers the lead three minutes in and added another late in the first to sandwich a marker by 16-yearold Fraser Sutherland. The Generals scored two goals in the second period, but Panthers captain Jake Bryan continued his knack for scoring with his reply. The Generals’ Taylor Gray scored 56 seconds into the third period, but when the Panthers’ Josh Bloomenthal closed out the scoring four minutes later, it would be all she wrote

“The penalty kill units did a super job killing off every one of Victoria’s seven power play opportunities.” – Rob Armstrong for the Generals. The Panthers were missing goaltending tandem Kylar Stern and Zach Wear due to injury, but 16-year-old call-up Stephen Heslop stopped 37 shots for the win. The young ’tender was acrobatic and brought the crowd to its feet as he handled the puck beyond the confines of his crease. He was named the game’s first star. “Stephen’s puck handling was well beyond his years,” said coach Rob Armstrong. “He was calm and decisive in moving the puck to his wingers and he even surprised me when he managed to clear the zone while we were short-handed.”

The night before, Heslop was also between the pipes as the Panthers travelled across town to battle the Victoria Cougars. He was on the losing end of a 3-1 count in his junior debut. Ryan Hunter was the lone marksman for the Panthers. “The game was physical and filled with emotion,” said Armstrong. “The penalty kill units did a super job killing off every one of Victoria’s seven power play opportunities. It hurt when we lost Wear midway through the first, but I thought that Heslop did an excellent job when he was forced to jump in there cold.” Wear left the game and got 12 stitches after he was cut by a Cougars skate. The Panthers host the Saanich Braves at Panorama Recreation Centre on Friday night, Jan. 20, at 7:30 p.m. sports@peninsulanewsreview.com

Grist gets first goal It was a long time coming for Sam Grist as the North Saanich defenceman scored his first WHL goal on the weekend. A member of the powerhouse Tri-City Americans, Grist is 6’4”, 200 pounds, and plays a reliable, stay-at-home style of game. Though he shies away from taking offensive chances, the former Victoria Grizzlies player has also endured a bit of bad luck. He needed 96 games – nearly two full seasons with the Americans – to get his first goal. It came in a 5-3 loss to the Spokane Chiefs on Saturday when Grist blasted a slap shot from the point that caromed in off a defender. Grist is bound for a big playoff run as his Tri City Americans are the No. 1 ranked major junior team in North America.

Stellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girls steal first

Shootout ends Royal string of losses

Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

A strong Stellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior team snagged first place at Parkland over the weekend. The girls basketball team finished first, defeating a Surrey secondary school for the top slot leaving Earl Marriott school in second. Nanaimoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wellington secondary rounded out the top three with a win over Gulf Islands. The host Parkland team finished seventh in the eight-team tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite some unfortunate results, the Parkland ladies did play hard and are showing a lot

Travis Paterson News staff

The Victoria Royals ended their 10-game losing streak with a 4-3 shootout win over the Brandon Wheat Kings on Saturday. It was the second of the Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; six-game jaunt through the Prairies, which opened with a 7-3 loss to the Regina Pats on Friday. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game came just five days after Victoria traded its top scorer Kevin Sundher to the Wheat Kings for defenceman Jordan Fransoo, forward Dakota Conroy and a first round bantam pick. As fate would have it, Sundher, Fransoo and Conroy all earned points in the game. Victoria had to come from behind to tie the game 3-3. Royals rookie Ben Walker scored in the third round of the shootout to win it. Prairie travels continue as the Royals visited Swift Current in Alberta on Tuesday, Jan. 17, followed by a swing through Moose Jaw, Prince Albert and Saskatoon. sports@peninsula newsreview.com

The girls were filling a space left by the Parkland senior girls who pulled out of that eight-team Nairn Howe tournament that saw both boys and girls teams descend on Gulf Islands secondary school for the weekend. Mill Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brentwood College girls finished first in that tournament, with Gulf Islands in second and Woodlands secondary from Nanaimo in third place. sports@peninsulanewsreview.com
