Dollars for Dogwood concerns student advocate Natalie North News staff

A basic stepping stone to higher education will soon be a little slipperier for adults looking to go back to school. In the fall, Camosun College will begin charging hundreds of dollars in tuition on some high school equivalency courses. The college will still have about 1,700 free spaces for students looking to earn their Dogwood. That’s 500 more than mandated by the province. But the concern is that some of the available free spaces will no longer include courses needed to pursue a post-secondary education. Sahra MacLean, external executive for Camosun College Student Society, says the problem runs deeper than the number of seats. “It’s who gets those seats, what classes those seats are in and when they’re offered,” said MacLean, who is also the B.C. executive with the Canadian Federation of Students. “By just saying we’re offering x-number of seats, it’s not really addressing the issue. It’s a quality over quantity issue.” Students accessing the adult basic education courses are coming back to school for any number of reasons, facing any number of challenges, whether they’re young or single parents, people with disabilities, or new immigrants, MacLean said. “They all come together here to try and get that education,” MacLean said. “Grade 12 is what everyone in this province should be able to get.” Camosun is in the midst of replacing a selection of adult basic education courses, including all high school equivalency science courses, to 100-level, tuition-bearing courses. Grade 11 and 12 equivalency courses in chemistry, physics and biology, for example, will now cost $361.80 or $440.10, depending on the course. Last year, equivalency courses were tuition free. “It’s not a path that we’re absolutely thrilled about,” said John Boraas, dean of Camosun College’s school of access.

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Sahra MacLean, external executive of the Camosun College Student Society, is concerned that tuition fees being introduced on some high school equivalency courses could keep some people from getting a higher education. “It’s not my first choice on how we would have responded. It’s balancing fiscal responsibilities.” Boraas oversees the delivery of all English and math courses, some of which will also now charge tuition. The depth of those new 100-level courses has been expanded to meet both student needs and course prerequisites in preparation for college and university programs, he said. But not all of the new courses are

university-transferrable. “We either had to decide that we just wouldn’t (offer adult basic education), or find a different way to create some capacity that gives students some options,” Boraas said, lauding the student society’s efforts to stand up for accessible education. “For us, our problem is how do we deal with too little money and too much demand?” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Biking to school for a cure Selflessness runs deep

Teen sets out to pedal his way to first day of university – in Ontario

Those who know Adam Beaudoin best say his ambitious charity ride comes as no surprise. It’s just one of many examples of a social conscience and a level of maturity that belie his youth. “I have a career of 46 years working with youth,” said Allen York, chair of the Oak Bay High counselling department. “Rarely have I seen someone as altruistic as he is.” York taught Beaudoin peer counselling at the school, and says the teen has had a profound impact on the lives of several students, to the point of preventing suicides. “I can absolutely guarantee that there are two people alive because of Adam’s skill ... in being able to get a young person to speak about their dark secret and trust him enough to go with him for appropriate medical intervention,” he said. Beaudoin is modest about his ability. “I’m a pretty compassionate person,” he said. “I guess it sounds corny, but I see the good in people.” Another way Beaudoin has shown his desire to put others before himself came when he helped lead a campaign to raise funds for a pair of solar panels for his school. His group raised $40,000. Now he’s taken on his biggest challenge yet – riding 4,700 km in a month to raise funds for the B.C. Cancer Foundation. “We’re all just floored here,” said his mother, Ann Marcotte. “We’re constantly amazed by his initiative and spirit.”

Ryan Flaherty News staff

S

itting astride his Cannondale bicycle in a striking red jersey, Adam Beaudoin looks ready to take on the world. “Two and a half years ago I read Lance Armstrong’s book It’s Not About the Bike,” said Beaudoin, 17. “That really inspired me.” Armstrong’s story about his will to defeat testicular cancer lit a spark in the Oak Bay teen. When two of Beaudoin’s aunts were diagnosed with cancer soon afterwards, that spark rapidly grew into a full-on inferno. He knew he had to do something -- anything -- to fight the deadly disease. Beaudoin fired his first salvo last summer in Seattle. Joined by his parents, brother, and a friend, Beaudoin took part in a Livestrong challenge in support of Armstrong’s cancer charity. Riding 120 kilometres in a mere four and a half hours, Beaudoin raised roughly $2,500. It was a good start, but he was eager to do more. The proverbial lightbulb went off this spring. Beaudoin, a member of Oak Bay High’s class of 2011 -- which included two friends stricken by cancer -- had been accepted to Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., to study kinesiology. Knowing that he would soon be moving, Beaudoin hatched an ambitious plan. He would ride his bike to Kingston. “This ride will surpass my physical abilities far and wide,” Beaudoin said. “But I’m not doing this for myself. I’m doing it for the thousands of people who are threatened by cancer.” After taking the ferry to Tsawwassen on Saturday morning, Beaudoin set out for Hope. It’s an appropriately named destination for day one of a month-long ride that will see Beaudoin cover 4,700 km of Canadian highway, all in the name of charity. The goal is to raise more than $70,000 for the B.C. Cancer Foundation. That’s no pie-in-the-sky figure either. A close friend of Beaudoin’s family, Steve Clark, himself a cancer survivor, has pledged $5 per kilometre that Beaudoin rides, and will match any further donations up to the equivalent of another $5 per km. “You are an exceptional young man, right out of high school and not only striving to be your best but also to use this expe-

Adam Beaudoin is cycling to Queen’s University where he plans to study kinesiology. Beaudoin hopes to raise $70,000 for the B.C. Cancer Foundation. rience to raise awareness for a valuable cause,” Clark wrote in a letter explaining his pledge. The distance alone is immense. But the fact Beaudoin plans to complete his ride in time for move-in day at Queen’s on Sept. 4 makes his quest even more challenging. In order to finish on schedule, he plans to ride about 160 km per day. “I do crazy physical challenges all the time,” said Beaudoin. “I ran in the Grand Canyon earlier this year for four and a half hours without much training.

“But this is way more intense.” Beaudoin acknowledged that while physical stamina will be key to completing his mission -- he’s been riding up to 130 km per day leading up to his departure -- it will be even more important to remain mentally strong during the long, solitary ride, which will include a five-day stretch without any accompaniment. “I’ll think about anything -- calculus, chemistry, friends, situations in my life. It’s kind of like meditation for me,” he said. The day before Beaudoin set out, his

mother, Ann Marcotte, still couldn’t fully grasp the magnitude of what her son was about to undertake. “We’re very proud. Our heads are spinning a bit,” she said. Beaudoin’s head, however, is about as straight as can be. “When people hear that I’m doing it, they say ‘wow, you’re amazing!’ But I don’t see myself as an amazing kid at all,” he said. “It’s just the way I choose to live my life.” Beaudoin is chronicling his ride on his blog, at Adam-beaudoin.blogspot.com. The blog contains links to his B.C. Cancer Foundation donation page. Beaudoin had already raised close to $5,000 before leaving on his journey. “I’m doing this for my family, I’m doing it for my grad class,” he said. “I think I have the mental strength to make it through.” editor@saanichnews.com

“There’s such a difference you can make by being a donor. It’s allowed me to live a normal life,” Dobson said. Dobson is the honoree for this year’s Give the Gift of Life Walk, sponsored by the Kidney Foundation of Canada. The focus of this year’s walk is organ donation. Dobson received his kidney from a cadaver. But the president of the Victoria chapter – John’s mother Diana Dobson – said she’s seeing more living donors giving up an organ. Live donors account for half of donations every year. The recipient often fares better with an organ from a living, healthy person. Recovery after the surgery is constantly evolving. Donors no longer have to wait several weeks to recover. The transplant list for those waiting for kidneys is several years long. “For me to have two transplants within five years was a miracle,” said John Dobson. He was a healthy, active 21-year-old when he was diagnosed in 1992. He was on dialysis for three years before he received a new kidney, but his body rejected it. A second transplant was successful and he has been living with the kidney for the past 14 years. But there’s no telling when the disease might strike his body again and reject the organ. The Give the Gift of Life walk begins at 9 a.m. Sunday (Aug. 14) at Clover Point. The route ends at Mile Zero. There will also be children’s activities, musical entertainment, mascot Sidney the Kidney and donor registration forms. intern@vicnews.com

MLA’s office struck by fire Natalie North News staff

Saanich South MLA Lana Popham was at a conference just outside Kamloops Saturday night when she received a call at 11:30 p.m. from her 12-year-old son Kye. Popham’s husband, an Oak Bay firefighter, heard the Saanich fire department over the emergency radio responding to fire at 4085 Quadra St. He called home to get his son to relay the news. “Kye phoned me up in Barriere and said ‘Mom, your office is on fire,’” Popham said. “So there was nothing I could do about it. I thought he was joking.” Twelve firefighters and officers responded in two fire engines, one ladder truck, one rescue and one command vehicle. Popham stayed in touch with the Saanich fire department that evening. By 12:30 a.m., firefighters managed to extinguish the fire, which was contained to the roof of the two-unit building. “They saved the office,” Popham said. “Fifteen more minutes and the office would have been gone.” The following day, the building’s landlords Neil and Michelle Salmond sopped up the water in what is an almost entirely paperless office. Popham’s greatest concern was for local art she has on display but fortunately it wasn’t affected. The office will reopen Thursday morning. While none of the building’s contents were destroyed, there was damage to the hardwood floors and the roof. The cause of the fire has not been determined. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Anna Melnik doesn’t own a vehicle, but when she needs to shop for groceries or run other errands that aren’t a quick trip by bus, there is always a car at her beck and call. For the past year and a half, Melnik has been a member of Victoria Car Share, a non-profit co-operative that recently expanded its 22-vehicle service to three more neighbourhoods: North Park, Jubilee and Uptown. “There were some things that were hard to get to,” said Melnik, a University of Victoria environmental studies graduate student. Demand for the Victoria Car Share has been growing since 1996 when five friends in James Bay decided to buy a vehicle and share it. Volunteers kept the service going until staff were hired in 2007. “They planted the seed back in the day and it’s just taken off,” said Keane Gruending, who co-manages the region’s only car share program with Nicole Buchanan. “It’s still relatively a new concept that’s emerging,” Buchanan said of the service which is available in Victoria, Vic West, Oak Bay and Saanich. There are plans

Live Jazz! “A lot of people are hesitant to shift to just biking and walking,” said Gruending. For Melnik, the service saves her the expense of buying a car, she enjoys the convenience of reserving a vehicle online and she appreciates that, thanks in part to Victoria Car Share, there are fewer cars on the road. “I like the idea of having and using (cars) more efficiently,” Melnik said. “Everyone has their own everything. It’s nice to be able to share.” For pricing and membership information, please visit www. victoriacarshare.ca. emccracken@vicnews.com

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Range of Vision If you have normal vision, you should be able to see objects clearly whether they are near or far away. When your eye doctor examines your eyes he will measure your vision at long distance as well as close up. The measurement for distance vision is usually taken at 20 feet. A test for near vision is usually taken at the normal reading distance or about 16 inches. Near vision is used for reading, sewing, eating and any other activity in which the object you are looking at is within arms length. Intermediate vision includes computer screens, music on a stand, cards on a table etc. Distance vision is considered anything beyond that point. This would include looking at television or at people across the room, even though the distance is relatively short. You need to see clearly wherever you happen to be looking. Straining your eyes to try to see objects clearly can often cause headaches and other discomfort. If you think you may need glasses or contact lenses or a new lens correction, see your family optometrist for an examination.

to one day expand the service to the West Shore, Royal Oak in Saanich and Sidney. “I think rising gas prices have helped.” The co-op’s growing success is due in part to its partnerships with developers and government, which can offer car share memberships to tenants or employees and help ease parking constraints. The service has also attracted people looking to transition more easily to a lifestyle that is not so vehicle dependent, yet they can access a mini van, pick-up truck, convertible Smart car, two hybrids and sedans, among others.

OUR VIEW

Hold officials accountable It would be hard to argue that knowing the name of every person slapped with an administrative penalty for drinking and driving was in the public interest. But what if that person is a senior official responsible for public safety? Three months ago, an Esquimalt assistant fire chief was pulled over and given a 90-day driving ban for drinking before he drove, off-duty. Neither Hold public the fire department, safety officials nor the Township of released the to high scrutiny Esquimalt, information to the public. Even some Esquimalt councillors, who have the ultimate say in the department’s management, weren’t informed. In fact, the incident only came to light after an anonymous source tipped off a local media outlet. Had George McGregor been criminally charged with impaired driving, the information would have been made public through court records. For someone in his position, that information should have been provided to the public regardless of a criminal charge, off-duty or on. The same rules apply in any B.C. municipality – the names of public safety officials who receive administrative driving penalties are not released. Only a criminal charge would bring such transgressions to light. McGregor’s actions represent a potentially dangerous indiscretion unbecoming of a public safety official. While public safety officials are human, just like the rest of us, they have a responsibility to display a high standard of discipline as role models. Public bodies must remain accountable, especially where safety is concerned. While the rules might not dictate so, these agencies should step up and disclose the transgressions of their members – criminal or otherwise. For one thing, it would encourage these individuals to be more mindful of the important role they play in the eyes of the public. More importantly, in circumstances like McGregor’s, it could have opened a public dialogue into the usefulness and validity of the police-juried roadside prohibitions for drinking and driving.

I attended the recent British Columbia Teachers’ Federation convention in Victoria, where this entitlement culture was on display. During a news conference about the BCTF’s many demands, someone stood behind Education Minister George Abbott and held up a sign for TV cameras that demanded “No Tankers.” This was no campus radical slipped in from the street. It was a middle-aged BCTF delegate, one of many decrying the industrial economy we need to pay for their pensions. B.C. aspires to be a shipbuilding economy but it can’t do shipping? According to our public sector union elites, we’re too precious to allow oil tankers in B.C.? Apparently some have still failed to notice that oil tankers have been going up and down the coast for decades, and back and forth under the Lion’s Gate Bridge for years.

LETTERS

Editorial needed the other side of the story While I agree with the point made in the July 27 editorial, that ease of access to government information is a positive step, your inference of secrecy in government and a lack of transparency of government exists owing to the lack of accessibility to government information is misleading. The expenditures of the province have always been available and published in the annual Public Accounts. The salaries of politicians and public servants, including their travel expenditures were published. They also list the amount paid in grants and to suppliers. As reporters, you certainly must be aware of the existence of such public documents, so why are you inferring secrecy and lack of transparency

in government? I was a public servant for 31 years with the province of British Columbia. While always mindful of public perception with respect to expenditures and the need to be accountable to the public whose tax dollars are being used, you are only reporting one side of the story: the expenditure side. You fail to balance the reporting with what is achieved and accomplished as a result of the travel. Cabinet ministers and staff do not travel simply for travel sake; there must be legitimate government business to be conducted. Not everyone can afford the cost of a trip to Victoria to meet with elected officials or Cabinet ministers. You fail to

acknowledge that the role of a Cabinet minister extends to the entire province, not just the constituency of the MLA. It is important that Cabinet ministers and officials go into constituents’ “home courts,” particularly to rural British Columbia. This means travel. The province depends on federal transfer payments to fund important and valuable services in the province. These transfers do not just happen without interaction between the two levels of government. For example, the agriculture and food sector in British Columbia benefits from federal transfer payments, which provide greater funding than contributed by the provincial Ministry of Agriculture for services and

programs to farmers and the food industry. Those transfer payments would not materialize without Ministers and staff travelling to Ottawa to meet federal officials to secure the best possible agreements for the province. In the future, I would like to see responsible journalism, with the report presenting the two sides of the story, not simply, a sensational statement intended to incite negative reaction. Do your homework as reporters to demonstrate the hard work that is involved in being a public official. You too have a role to play in building trust in government. Harvey Sasaki Saanich

Water Delivery Famine in the Horn of Africa Bulk CRD Approved Drinking Water is a man-made disaster Droughts are common in the sub-Saharan regions, but only rarely produce a famine. Somalia did experience severe draughts in 1975 and 1982 which did not lead to widespread famine. Well-organized national and international efforts prevented such humanitarian crisis. Unfortunately the Somali nation and its state structures have been devastated by a civil war since 1991. Somalia’s last major famine was in 1992 and was not caused by drought. The epicenter of that famine was in Bay, one of the country’s most productive agricultural regions, and starvation was induced by warlords who used food as a weapon against farmers and pastoralists. This has led to a U.S.-led military intervention which ended in the disaster depicted in the film Black Hawk Down. After the U.S. withdrawal, the country descended into a state of lawlessness and the warlords reigned supreme. The Somali population became vulnerable to natural disturbances because of the unstable political and military situation in the country. Such instability gave the U.S. the alarm bells that Somalia was declared to be in the front of the “War on Terror.” Any Somali group with the slightest hint of Islamic leanings was designated a terrorist. Thus, in 1996, when the Somali Islamic Courts movement took control of the capital

Mogadishu, and brought peace and order not seen since 1991, the U.S. moved quickly. The new regime was unseated by unlawful invasion of the Ethiopian army with the express blessing of the U.S. government. The invasion resulted in further devastation of the Somali nation and its foundations. The ongoing confrontation between the U.S. and the local militias have created circumstances in which local food resources are exhausted and assistance from outside is denied or delayed until tens of thousands of innocent lives are lost. The world community has to come to grips with the ugly reality that is there for all to see. Sending aid by airplanes is not sufficient to stem the crisis in any meaningful way. The situation demands massive humanitarian, political and military efforts not only to end the famine, but also to enable Somalia to stand on its feet once again. If the 1995 Rwandan genocide has taught the international community a valuable lesson, it is that carelessness and indifference will not make the problem go away. Rather, a manageable crisis will metamorphose into a humanitarian disaster. We can only hope that Somalia will not be another black mark on the world’s conscious. Malcolm H. Zoraik Saanich

Police warn of hit man email scam Another email scam is, pardon the pun, “hitting” inboxes. Saanich and Oak Bay police are warning of the so-called hit man scam, in which a spammer claims to have been hired to murder the recipient of the message. The email goes on to request payment in exchange for information about who has taken out the hit. “This is an extreme example of phishing,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “Typically, they don’t have any mention of violence. This one does.” Police say the best way to ward against electronic scams is to be critical of any emails that are not addressed to you specifically, as well as those with poor grammar or which request an electronic transfer of funds. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Garden party celebrates castle’s restored look Erin McCracken News staff

Strolling minstrels, jugglers, the lilting strains of live music, ladies and gentlemen partaking of cake and sipping tea – the decadence of the Victorian era will soon come alive on the newly refurbished south lawn of Craigdarroch Castle. The free outdoor garden party for the public will celebrate the end of $750,000 in restoration work on the castle grounds, which lasted two years. When visitors arrive, they are transported back in time as they pass through replica fourmetre-high sandstone and iron gateposts at the original entrance at Fort Street and Joan Crescent. “When you come up on Fort Street, you can actually see them and it gives you a much better sense of what it was like to pull up to the castle (by carriage) back in the 1890s,” said Elisabeth Hazell, assistant manager of castle operations and development. The outdoor party happens Aug. 13 from 2 to 5 p.m. Craigdarroch Castle is at 1050 Joan Cres. emccracken@vicnews.com

Victoria residents get first look at Monty’s replacement The days appear to be numbered for Victoria’s last downtown strip club.

Twenty residents of the area applauded the unveiling of proposed plans to redevelop the

corner of Government Street and Pandora Avenue, home to Monty’s Showroom Pub and the

Victoria Plaza Hotel. When the property officially changes hands next month, businesses

GREEN

such as Cabin 12 restaurant and several hotel tenants will have to find a new home. Still, there was enthusiasm for the $14-million six-storey residential-commercial project when it was presented for the first time at a Downtown Residents’ Association meeting last week. “While we may have some of the most to lose in this, we’re actually wholly supportive,” said Cabin 12 co-owner

Corey Judd, who asked that developer Lorne Milne consider his eatery for the building’s future ground-floor restaurant. “We’d love to serve as your ambassador into that community.” Should Victoria city council approve the rezoning, the development will include retail space and possibly live-work units on the ground floor, said Milne, CEO of Griffiths Milne Clough Projects,

which is partnering with League Capital Partners in the sale. It would take about 15 months to construct the project, beginning in late 2013, early 2014, said Milne. Plans also call for underground parking, 30 rental units and 75 strata units. The front of the 101year-old hotel will be preserved, and a sidewalk café may replace the city’s green urinal location. emccracken@vicnews.com

Motherhood play brings laughs to Belfry Shelley Lipke News staff

A mother lode of comic adventures in parenting is now playing at the Belfry Theatre. Five Vancouver-based moms are back with a compilation of their funniest skits, dances and songs in Mom’s the Word: Remixed. This hilarious parody of childrearing began in 1993 when the actress moms decided to take the highs and lows of parenting on stage. Since then this play has spread worldwide with actresses in many countries performing it in their own languages. Actress and mom Barbara Pollard called the skit wacky, colourful, fun and something to which moms of any age or demographic can relate. “These are stories about our journeys as mothers,” she said. It began when the moms, all working professionals in theatre, had kids around the same time and couldn’t find any work. At the time there were lots of textbooks on raising children,

but nothing being acted on stage involving raising children, so they set out to change that. “We were grappling in the dark. When we first did the show we gathered together as a group of friends telling stories and tried to plant a framework (for the skit),” said Pollard. Jill Daum remembers the first show. “We were supposed to run for three days and the arts club in Vancouver picked us up and we ran for nine months. The first night the audience stood up, clapped, walked toward the stage and hugged us. Back then we were just talking heads. We were talking about parenting and telling stories and there was very little plot.” Over the years they evolved to get a director, a set and costumes. “It’s more polished now,” said Daum. Dressed in outrageous superhero costumes decorated with scouring pads, cheese graters, eggbeaters and vegetable strainers, they sing to the Pussycat Dolls song “Don’t Cha.” “The costumes are alienators

furthest extreme of mortification,” explained Daum. The show stars Daum, Pollard, Beverley Elliott, Alison Kelly, and Deborah Williams. Scenes take the audience through birth, raising children, co-parenting conflicts, and the dreaded teenage years. “It shows the good, bad, and the ugly. That is the secret of the success,” said Kelly. “If you wrote only funny stories, it wouldn’t have the truth. We let out secrets and it’s a show for everybody who has had a mom. After 18 years, I still adore the lines.” “It is being acted by women worldwide and people can’t believe it’s Canadian. People can’t believe how it speaks to the universality of parenting,” she said. Mom’s the Word: Remixed runs until Aug. 21 with tickets ranging from $23 to $38 available by phone at 250-385-6815 or at www.belfry. bc.ca/tickets. It shows nightly Tuesday to Saturday at 8 p.m. with a 4 p.m. matinee on Saturday and a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday. The Belfry is at 1291 Gladstone Ave. editor@vicnews.com

Willock tops series Olympic cyclist racing in peak form prior to World Championships Shelley Lipke News Staff

It’s described as one of the highest quality racing series in the world and Saanichton’s Erinne Willock has come through it ranked No. 1. From May to July, the 29-year-old athlete pushed herself to the extreme for the Women’s Prestige Cycling Series, held at various locations across the U.S. Willock picked up enough points to earn elite status. The series included four stage races: The Redlands Classic, SRAM Tour of the Gila, the Nature Valley Grand Prix and the Cascade Classic. Despite missing Gila due to injury, Willock’s point tally from the other three races was enough to win. “My strengths have always been stage races, especially the hilly ones. It was unfortunate that I was injured for Gila, but I came back with good form in the last two races,” said Willock, who represented Canada at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. “I have worked closely with my coach Houshang (Amiri) from the Pacific Cycling Centre to improve my time trialling and sprinting this year and it has paid off.” During the series she placed second in the Redlands Classic and Nature Valley and came fourth in the Cascade Classic.

Each race had about 100 cyclists from the best North American teams competing over several days. Willock was part of Team Tibco/To the Top. Back home in Victoria Willock is instrumental in mentoring Pacific Cycling Centre athletes at their off-season training camps. She’s been a member of the Canadian National Team since 1999. This year has been a banner year for her with wins at the Snelling Road Race in Merced, Calif., and the Bastion Square Grand Prix in Victoria. She’s also been named to the national team for the World Championships in Copenhagen, Denmark Sept. 19-25. Willock comes from a family of cyclists. Her dad Martin an Olympian in 1984. She grew up with a racing mentality and started competing at 14. “I definitely learned my bike-handling skills and early tactics from him. I’ve been really lucky to have a big team of supporters, including my husband Tony, my mom and my coach. I would not be where I am today without the help from all four of those people,” she said. “Her dedication and commitment to the sport makes her one of the top female athletes in Canada and on the world stage,” Amiri said. Next on her agenda is a three-day Chicago race and a World Cup race leading up to the World Championships in Copenhagen. sports@vicnews.com

Raiders duodecuple Rebels in Island meet-up The Westshore Rebels suffered a tough loss to their up-Island rivals, losing 72-6 against the Vancouver Island Raiders Saturday night at Bear Mountain Stadium.

Westshore Rebels quarterback Cat Todorovich eludes Glenn Boyce of the Vancouver Island Raiders in the Rebels’ 72-6 loss at Bear Mountain Stadium on Saturday.

The Victoria Kaos claimed bronze at the Western Canadian senior-B women’s fastpitch championships in Burnaby on the weekend. Kaos catcher Kara Shelley took the tourney MVP award by going error-free for 52 innings with seven put-outs and seven hits in 21 at-bats. Victoria finished first in the round robin with five wins in six games, but lost in the quarterfinals to the tourna-

ment’s eventual champions, Strathmore Magic, who Victoria had previously beaten in the round robin. Kaos lost its chance for another shot at the Magic in the final when the Victoria team lost to the Manitoba Aces in the semifinal. Last year, Kaos won the provincial senior-B championships and were bronze medalists when they hosted the B.C. tourney at Hyacinth Park earlier this summer.

Grizz’ bolster line-up with trade, signing

A pair of off-season moves have reshaped the Victoria Grizzlies for the 2011-12 season. The Grizzlies traded away 17-year-old Evan Richardson for the rights to 20-yearold goalie Jamie Tucker in a three-team trade between the Penticton Vees and Powell River Kings. Tucker is a Victoria product who played for the junior-B Saanich Braves before joining the Western Hockey League. He broke in

as a Vancouver Giant before moving to the Prince Albert Raiders where he played 40 games last year. Victoria also got 18-yearold defenceman Braden Pears and 18-year-old forward Scott Renner. Victoria originally secured the rights to B.C. Hockey League goaltender of the year Michael Garteig, before sending him to Penticton. Pears is from Victoria and has played two years in the BCHL with the Kings. The Grizz’ also acquired character leader Brad Gehl, the current captain of the Trenton Golden Hawks in the Ontario junior-A hockey league. Gehl, 20, is a 6-foot-3, 220 lbs. forward who scored 132 points in 86 games over the past two seasons.

Royals ship d-man for forward, pick

The Victoria Royals picked up forward Justin Spagrud and a second round draft pick from the Tri-City Americans for defenceman Mitch

Topping. Head coach and general manager Marc Habscheid keyed on the importance of getting a high draftpick along with Spagrud, a resident of Gull Lake, Sask. Spagrud, 16, spent last season with the Swift Current Legionnaires midgetAAA team and played for Team Saskatchewan at the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax in February. Topping, 18, played 71 games for the Bruins last year.

Eagles run ends with bronze medal

The Victoria Eagles won bronze at the recent mosquito-AAA (9-10) provincials in Richmond.

UVic golden at Henley The University of Victoria Vikes men’s and women’s summer rowing teams won the prestigious Henley Efficiency Trophy as the top Canadian Club at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in St. Catharines, Ont., over the weekend. The Vikes won nine gold medals. The Efficiency Trophy was implemented in the 1970s to give smaller teams, like UVic’s 38 rowers, a chance to compete against the 100-plus rowers of second-place St. Catherine’s Rowing Club. UVic’s biggest day came on Aug. 4 with five gold medals from the U23 women’s lightweight eight (Leanne Fells, Katie O’Connor, Ingrid Braul, Alex Meiklejohn, Johanna Weber, Anna Braunzier, Emma Sheehan, Stef Miklosovic, Jane Gumley), the senior lightweight women’s double

White Rock’s third baseman Dylan Yeager waits for the call after tagging Victoria Eagle’s Mike Varley at Carnarvon Park during the bantam-AAA provincials.

Eagles win bantam-AAA title in Oak Bay A dramatic two-run home run by Sam Stevenson took the lead back in a see-saw final as the Victoria Eagles won the bantam-AAA provincial baseball championship. Victoria defeated the Vancouver Mounnties 8-5 in Sunday’s final at Carnarvon field, where the provincial tournament played out from Aug. 4-7. Stevenson’s dinger made it 5-3 for Victoria late in the game. The Eagles added three more runs, two from a big single by Mitch Bryan. It was a revenge win for the Eagles who lost to

the Mounties 11-8 earlier in the tournament during a delayed game. The Eagles started the tournament in fine fashion outscoring Burnaby and TriCity 22-3 before the loss to Vancouver. A win over Abbotsford put the team in the semifinals against Cloverdale. Pitcher Kurt Horne struckout 15 Cloverdale hitters and as the Eagles won 7-1. The Eagles will now travel to Vaughan, Ontario to compete in the 2011 Bantam AAA Nationals. sports@vicnews.com
