HST rejected by majority of Saanichites Kyle Slavin News staff

Greater Victoria’s NDP MLAs are celebrating the end of the HST. Four of the five local electoral districts saw strong opposition to keeping the harmonized tax, including Victoria-Swan Lake where nearly 58 per cent of voters wanted to extinguish the tax. “The voices I was hearing prior to (Friday) was mostly people who were not happy with the HOW WE VOTED HST,” said Saanich South MLA Are you in favour of extinguishing Lana Popham, whose constituthe HST and reinstating the PST ents voted 52.52 per cent to in conjunction with the GST? scrap the tax. “And a referendum is great because everybody ESQUIMALT-ROYAL ROADS: gets to express themselves. The Yes- 57.96% No- 42.04% participation rate was high, so I think the people of B.C. need a OAK BAY-GORDON HEAD: pat on the back.” Yes- 48.60% No- 51.40% Victoria-Beacon Hill MLA CarSAANICH SOUTH: ole James says the result of the Yes- 52.52% No- 47.48% referendum – 54.73 per cent of VICTORIA-BEACON HILL: 1.6 million voters wanting to axe Yes- 55.76% No- 44.24% the tax – sends a clear message to the government that British VICTORIA-SWAN LAKE: Columbians want to go back to Yes- 57.73% No- 42.27% the GST and PST dual taxation system. “I think, if anything, this vote says to the Liberals, ‘It’s time to get back to work.’ I want to see legislation introduced that will bring back the GST and PST in a smooth process in a way that works for small businesses and families.” In Oak Bay-Gordon Head, the lone Liberal-held seat in Greater Victoria, the numbers told a different story. That electoral district was one of only 25 in the province to vote to keep the HST. MLA Ida Chong, a former accountant, said she believes the HST failed partly because explaining tax policy to the public is “complicated and … hard to understand.”

Reflections in art Tyler Jones, with CertaPro Painters, paints a garage door frame at the new Arts Centre at Cedar Hill. Among the upcoming exhibits planned for the arts centre is one on contemporary landscape architecture, Aug. 30 through Sept. 25, at the Gallery Café. The exhibition, Drawing on the Land, exemplifies the breadth and aptitude of landscape architecture and its ability to communicate ideas for landscape architectural spaces. The gallery is located at 3220 Cedar Hill Rd.

Cordova Bay’s newest centenarian still spry Natalie North News staff

Don’t be fooled when Cordova Bay’s Bill Noble talks about making radios with peanut tubes. The former radio and phonograph salesman may have celebrated his 100th birthday on Aug. 23, but also has a computer and still keeps up with the latest news in technology. “As a kid, I was always interested in radio,” he says, about what was high tech at the time. “It was the coming thing.” Remarkably, for a man who was born while Sir. Wilfrid Laurier was still Prime Minister of Canada, Noble lives independently with minimal home care support. Should he pass his renewal exam, Noble will also retain his driver’s licence and continue to drive to take his wife Kay out for dinner. To celebrate the big day, Noble’s longtime neighbour Gwen MacPherson organized a surprise party. “He couldn’t believe it,” MacPherson said of the party attended by friends and his two stepsons. “He loves the neighbours and he loves to party.”

Natalie North/News staff

Bill Noble, 100, shows off his 1930’s Kodak pocket cam. Sitting in his easy chair in his living room, Noble smiles at all of the recognition. He has a binder of congratulatory certifi-

cates, including ones from the Queen and the Prime Minister. Nearby, there are an assortment of flowers and cards. However, the bouquet from the local pharmacy is a little odd, Noble says, given that he takes no medications. “I’ve been really very lucky and I realize it,” Noble says. “I never felt that I was getting old until I reached 100, then everybody started telling me.” Noble explains that his love of music and radio led him to move from Vancouver to Prince Rupert to sell RCA/Victor radios in 1940. He later opened Noble’s record, radio and phonograph stores in Prince Rupert and Terrace before relocating to Cordova Bay to be closer to his parents. His father, George Holmes Noble, is the son of pioneering Oak Bay dairy farmers. In his home, a walker parked beside his chair and a hearing aid are some of the few signs of his age. But get him talking, and the tales testify to a time gone by. He recalls driving a Studebaker from Vancouver to Florida in 1928 – Texas was the worst, Noble says, with only 10 miles of blacktop on either side of Houston.

There is also his pocket camera, still in pristine condition, which he’s carried with him since the 1930s when he bought it for 25 cents. As a boy, he would play on the beach in Cordova Bay during family visits to what, in the 1920s, was primarily a summer vacation area. When he returned to Cordova Bay in the spring of 1967, he was with his first wife Evelyn and son Stewart, both of whom have passed. Noble, an only child, is the last surviving member of his father’s bloodline. The family name will end with him, despite a history of long lives. Each of his father’s nine siblings all lived into their 90s, with George making it until just two weeks short of his 104th birthday. Even Noble’s dog Rex lived until he was 23, Noble says with a grin. “It’s in the genes. I don’t even know what the genes are,” he says. “I keep being told I have the right genes, so I’ll accept that.” Noble shies away from dispensing any advice or words of wisdom on his long life. “My mind is an enquiring mind,” he says. “I just know how darn lucky I am.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Business weighs in on referendum results Kyle Slavin News staff

Now’s the time to buy a house. That’s the message from the Canadian Home Builders’ Association of Victoria following Friday’s referendum results overturning the HST in favour of the former GST-PST tax system. “Any additional cost that consumers are paying through the HST, the reduction in housing prices over the past year (as a result of the HST implementation) certainly outweighs those considerations,” said Casey Edge, executive director of CHBA. “We saw a 39-per-cent drop in housing starts in Greater Victoria. … As a result there’s been a significant drop in price as well.” Edge says the average price of a new, single-family home in Greater Victoria dropped $68,000 since July 2010 when the HST was implemented. But he doesn’t anticipate it to stay that way for long. “Our fear is that consumers will continue to hold back waiting for the elimination of the HST. Unfortunately the housing market has been driven by provincial politics with this HST referendum for the past year,” he said. “It’s certainly a good time for consumers to be looking right now because people

are caught up in the HST issue thinking that they’re going to save money if they wait for another year or two.” That said, the CHBA supported extinguishing the tax because of the way it was brought in. There was no consultation with residents or businesses, and there were no tax incentives for consumers. New homes were previously PST-exempt, so purchases only included a five-per-cent GST. When the taxes were harmonized on July 1, 2010, the tax jumped to 12 per cent. Ever since, Fairfield Bicycle Shop coowner Max Cochran says customers there have been complaining about being forced to pay seven-per-cent more taxes on everything in the store. “We had a rush on big-ticket things right before it came in. … Since then we’ve certainly had a number of people groaning about it,” he said. “This 140-per-cent increase in the tax you’re paying, it didn’t sit well with a lot of people.” He anticipates customers will be happy that the PST-GST system will return and bicycles are once again PST-exempt. That’s welcome news to Saanich South MLA Lana Popham, who has been advocating that bicycles be tax exempt since the HST was announced.

He said the savings allowed him to give “The problem that people were expressing to me is they didn’t like the way that raises to his company’s 38 employees. The story is different for the owner of British Columbia was losing control over their tax system. People were quite pleased Eugene’s Greek Restaurant at University with the exemptions in place – it was a Heights.

Man flees after crash A 27-year-old Metchosin driver was arrested after fleeing from a single-vehicle crash that shut down West Saanich Road Wednesday night for several hours. Just before 8 p.m., a white Chevy Geo crashed into a pole and ended up in a ditch just south of the Roadhouse Bar & Grill. When officers arrived the driver was to be found. A police dog “All these curves nowhere searched the scene and located the are well-marked man a short distance north of the crash. He was taken to hospital and and shouldn’t be a treated for minor injuries before being surprise to anybody. released into police custody, arrested for dangerous operation of a motor And yet we still vehicle and impaired driving. find cars go off the “Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor,” said Saanich police road there quite Sgt. Dean Jantzen. He added that the regularly.” nature of the road – which is quite – Sgt. Dean Jantzen curvy – makes the area prone to accidents. “That stretch of road, over the years, has had many similar accidents,” he said. “All these curves are well-marked, well-signed, and shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody. And yet we still find cars go off the road there quite regularly.” West Saanich Road was closed late into the night as police crash analysts surveyed the scene. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Witnesses sought in road rage incident Victoria police hope witnesses will come forward to describe a road rage incident that happened Wednesday (Aug. 24). At about 1 p.m., a woman driving a grey Honda Civic apparently cut off another woman in a black Chevrolet Aveo heading east on Craigflower Road, after turning from Lampson Street. The Aveo rammed the back of the Civic. The two women proceeded to yell at each other while stopped, waiting for construction on Craigflower. The driver of the Aveo then fled the scene, but VicPD officers pulled her over nearby. She got a ticket for failing to remain at the scene, but police are considering more charges if witnesses can provide a clearer description of the collision and ensuing confrontation. Anyone with information is asked to call VicPD at 250-9957654. ecardone@vicnews.com

Goodall brings her story to Victoria Erin McCracken News staff

A worldwide household name synonymous with pioneering research on chimpanzees is coming to Victoria. Jane Goodall will be sharing her stories from the field where she did much of her groundbreaking research, beginning in 1960. The Oct. 15 fundraising lecture, Reason for Hope: Exploring the Challenges of Science and Soul, will support the Torontobased Jane Goodall Institute of Canada, which she founded in 1993. Victoria is one stop on a tour for Goodall, marking the 50th anniversary of the beginning of her pioneering research into chimp behaviour. “We just think it’s a perfectly timed event for this critical time in our history,” said Hilary Leighton, director of continuing studies at Royal Roads University,

which is sponsoring the lecture. Goodall’s dedication to her work led to many discoveries, including that they make and use tools and eat meat, and changed the way we understand our connection with chimpanzees. When the institute contacted Royal Roads University about hosting Goodall, the news caused a stir at the school. “We absolutely said yes,” Leighton said, adding that the connections between the university and the institute run strong since graduates have gone on to work and volunteer at the centre, which supports wildlife research, education and conservation. Tickets for the special evening were quietly launched Aug. 22, and already the response has been incredible, Leighton said. It’s no wonder. The global environmentalist is also a United Nations Messenger of Peace, as

well as a highly regarded author, having published several books which will be signed and sold at the upcoming lecture. “Her work is pivotal in terms of human behaviours and our impact on our planet,” said Leighton. “She’s the person who brings feeling into this work in a rigorous and constructive way. She’s quite an amazing woman.” Premium ticket holders will have the chance to meet Goodall on Oct. 15 and enjoy wine and cheese in Wood Hall at the Alix Goolden Hall, 907 Pandora Ave., from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The main lecture is 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Premium tickets for the reception and lecture are $125.50 plus taxes. The cost of the lecture, depending on seating location, is $45.50 or $65.50. Tickets are available at the Royal and McPherson Theatres Society box office by calling 250-3866121 or by visiting www.rmts.bc.ca. emccracken@vicnews.com

Home tour shows off the beautiful, quirky Erin Cardone News staff

Walking down Oak Bay Avenue, it’s easy to miss one of the region’s most unique dwellings perched above the throngs of people who pass by obliviously each day. Next to the roofline of the Penny Farthing pub, Jim Kirk lives in a flat-roofed, midcentury-modern dwelling. There are the 1970s Barcelona chairs, a nearindustrial kitchen and glossy grey walls. Outside is a bonsai garden with trees that have been growing since the 1960s. The loft at 2233 Theatre Ln. is one of six stand-out houses in Greater Victoria on this year’s House Tour, a fundraiser for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

“We sell out every year,” said Joan Huzar, who chairs the event. “I think it’s about getting inside. These are homes the owners designed themselves.” Kirk, 71, worked with interior designer Diane Kettner on his abode, which he bought in 1988. It’s been through three renovations since then, the most recent taking place last Christmas. He’s happy to have people stroll through his living space. “It’s the least we can do for the community,” he said. Last year’s House Tour raised just shy of $30,000 for the AGGV’s programs and exhibits and the hope is to raise even more this year. An artist will show work and prepare new pieces at each of the

addresses on the selfguided tour. The tour isn’t for children under 12, and there are stairs at all addresses, which could prevent

access for people with mobility issues. The House Tour is Sunday (Sept. 11), from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $40, and are available at

Got a Question? RIGHT OR WRONG?

Q & A With Rosalind

Uncommon sense for marketplace decisions with Rosalind Scott, Executive Director, BBB If you have a question or experience that you would like to share with Rosalind Scott please email rosalindscott@vi.bbb.org.

Dear BBB, I recently received an email that appeared to come from the BBB complaints department that claimed I had a negative review against my business. The email stated that I needed to click on the link provided, update my business information and to respond to the negative review, in order to ensure my BBB business profile and rating was not negatively impacted. I am confused. I did not think that the BBB used customer reviews in assessing and evaluating businesses? Is it possible this is a phishing scam? ~Bamboozled Business Bamboozled Business, You are RIGHT in believing that this is a phishing scam. The BBB does not use customer reviews to assess and evaluate the trustworthiness of a business. The content of a BBB Business Review is determined by information collected by the BBB as it pertains to BBB Accreditation, the outcome of BBB consumer complaints, advertising reviews, investigations, licensing requirements and government actions. The BBB has received calls from a number of consumers and businesses that have recently received an email that appears to come from a fake BBB address (BBBupdate@post.com) in the Atlanta, Georgia metro area. The email falsely requests verification and validation of BBB Ratings. This email is a scam and the legal department of the international Council of BBB’s is working to find out who is behind the scam. We will be taking appropriate action to protect the BBB trademark. Should you receive such an email, please disregard its message, and report it on the BBB’s Scam Portal www. bbb.org/scam/report-a-scam/. This phishing scam just goes to show that any customer, business or organization can become a victim of fraud.

OUR VIEW

Tax policy rejection portends election Let’s face it, the HST referendum and debate wasn’t really over an unpopular tax. People didn’t vote to get rid of it because they loved the PST-GST combination, much less preferred the way it was administered. It was, like so many elections fought over the years, a vote of confidence in or lack thereof in the government and its We must all now policies. What the resulting brace for the vote to extinguish the HST aftermath HST indicates is that the Liberals’ time in power in British Columbia, unless some very drastic steps are taken to woo voters, is fast coming to a close. The HST referendum acted as a kind of dry run to the provincial election. It had very similar elements to a political campaign: dislike for the current government, fanned by the way the combined tax was introduced; an ambitious politician anxious to champion the cause of the so-called “working people” – Bill Vander Zalm; and a simple method of changing things: vote against it. The HST had pockets of support: Oak Bay-Gordon Head residents voted to keep it. But those in NDP-held constituencies overwhelmingly chose to get rid of it. Regardless whether peoples’ reasoning for voting for or against the HST was sound – the complexities of tax policy are lost on most people – it was based on trust. While many have celebrated the result, we all need to brace for the aftermath. The province, having committed to restoring previous PST exemptions and looking at $360 million less in tax revenue annually, will immediately seek ways to make up the difference – the Liberals have no appetite for operating deficits. By the time the province returns to the GSTPST combo in 2013, the B.C. government will have spent hundreds of millions backtracking and recreating tax infrastructure. Then there’s the point of repaying $1.6 billion to the feds. The ironic part of this “people’s referendum” is that we may well have put the Liberals in a similar financial mess to the one they inherited from the NDP back in 2001. What do you think?

This is what has happened in Greece. It is very close to happening in other European countries, and today B.C. is a step closer to it. When the verdict came in on the HST referendum, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon talked about going around to consult the public on how to reinstate the provincial sales tax. He vowed that B.C. will somehow still balance its budget in two years, and seemed to leave the door open to some minor modifications of the sales tax system. Premier Christy Clark quickly shut that door. It would be “disrespectful” to do anything other than bring back the post-war PST in all its rustic beauty, with the little boutique exemptions like bicycles and Toyota Priuses that have been attached by politicians over the years. Self-employed business people can now look forward to collecting and remitting two separate taxes again. There will be a cost to this “people’s victory.” It will involve reducing public services, raising taxes or both.

SAANICH SAANICH NEWS NEWS -- Wednesday, Wednesday, August August 31, 31, 2011 2011 

Writer’s perception of ‘hunter’ was wrong, unjustified Re: Animal lover’s rant was over the top (Letters, Aug. 17) It always amazes me how whenever one dares pronounce the word “hunting” in any negative context, people like letter-writer Justin Barski immediately jump up and viciously attack the brave challenger – no matter how out of context. In this particular case, my remarks were clearly and specifically about entertainment and trophy hunting and not hunting in general. Justin, on the other hand, proudly defends all “legal hunting practices,” so I assume that he also defends trophy hunting as this is, sadly and incredibly, still legal in B.C. I would like to remind Justin that 80 per cent of British Columbians oppose trophy hunting of the grizzly bear and this is an objective fact – not an uninformed, subjective, inane, obnoxious opinion of mine. If the grizzly bear eventually disappears from B.C., and hence from the face of the Earth, we will have to thank people like Justin and their arrogant destructive attitude for driving it to extinction with their legal hunting practices. By the way, in the unlikely event that an asteroid does threaten the Earth and its inhabitants within our human time on this planet, I am not sure if I want to be saved by people like Justin. As I said in my first letter, maybe it would be good if Mother Earth started all over again and humanity was given a second chance. Nabhraj Spogliarich Saanich

Public art should be lauded, not complained about Re: Public process lost in the woods (News, Aug. 12) I have to disagree with Councillor Vicki Sanders about the Lumberworld mural! How can you say it’s “dark?” In fact, it’s all about light – light coming through trees at sunrise or sunset. In my opinion, it’s a sophisticated, not trite piece of work that makes excellent use of an awkward-to-fill wide space.

LETTERS And as far as council deciding that whatever art’s in the public eye that hasn’t been approved by them is graffiti, what utter nonsense! Where on earth do they get off making such a claim?** I really enjoy the Lumberworld piece. My initial reaction upon seeing it was “Wow!” and it’s “Wow!” every time I drive by it, which is often, as I live nearby. I think the artist should be congratulated for coming up with something so original and appealing, and I think Lumberworld should be congratulated for hiring the artist. Anne Swannell Saanich **Editor’s note: As per Saanich’s unsightly premises bylaw, any artwork – commissioned or otherwise – that isn’t approved by council or a jury is considered graffiti.

LRT tax increase would impact rent costs for low-income folk

Re: Public process lost in the woods (News, Aug. 12) I must take issue with Councillor Vicki Sanders regarding the mural on the wall of the Lumberworld building. Yes, it may be a little on the dark side, but it is different from our run-of-the-mill murals. It grows on you. I can agree Saanich may want to look at a proposed mural from the point of view that it is socially acceptable, but to insist they must be involved in the design and selection process is just too much bureaucracy. Harry Felsing Saanich

Unmentioned or perhaps forgotten in the debate about light rail transit are the renters and lower-income individuals and families. The province will have no choice but to allow landlords to increase rents over and above the statutory limit to offset the significant tax impact. Coupled with sewage treatment, this is going to cause many hardships. Secondly, there are going to be so few, relatively speaking, that will benefit from it. Just as minimal will be the benefits from sewage treatment. Both of these expenditures, because of the significance of their tax implications should go to a public referendum, just as we took the HST to public referendum because of its tax implications. We could do it at the same time as the upcoming civic elections. It would save a whole a ton of money. Bob Broughton Saanich

Gov’t mandated smart meters are an invasion of privacy

Kudos to the News for Day in the Life photo feature

The Liberal government has legislated away our privacy by forcing B.C. Hydro to install smart meters in every home without homeowner’s consent. Bill 17, the Clean Energy Act, dictates this must be completed before December 2012. What the act does not take into consideration is how Itron’s smart meters invade one’s privacy.

The decision has been made.” Michael Prince, Lansdowne professor of social policy at the University of Victoria, says the close numbers are indicative of the old political adage that “time will heal all; people will get used to the tax.” The final votes, however, show opinion didn’t shift enough to favour the Liberals. “This will be seen as a victory for those who were outraged at the way this was brought in and dumped on them, and how this was planned and announced,” Prince said. “There could’ve been many other ways the government campaigned or marketed this tax (instead of TV ads with) the little stick men and the promise of a far-off, two-per-cent tax cut.” The way the HST was implemented – suddenly and without public consultation – helped turn popular opinion against a tax policy endorsed by many economists and business leaders. “I think that if the HST had been introduced in a different way it may have ultimately been met with a different reception from British Columbians,” Premier Christy Clark said Friday. “It’s fair to say that’s the one hypothetical you can be certain about.” The B.C. government will have to borrow to pay back the $1.6 billion transition fund from the federal government. The province has said the PST/GST will return as B.C.’s tax system by March 31, 2013. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Greek Fest turns 10 Natalie North News staff

Bring out the baklava, and get ready for lamb for lunch. Greek Fest turns 10 this year and it’s bigger than ever. Ask any fan of the festival and the authentic food is likely to be a highlight. But for organizers, Greek Fest is about more than just 200 roasted lambs. “It’s a bit of everything for the family, for younger people or for older people,” said Michael Ikonomou, president of the Victoria and Vancouver Island Greek Community Society. “We have Greek dancing lessons, so a lot of people come on stage and learn to dance.” The most important element is to showcase Greek culture and heritage. New this year are paintings with classic iconography, completed by monks and nuns in Greek monasteries. The art will be unveiled to the public for the first time, having just arrived at the Greek orthodox church, where the festival is located. Juan de Fuca, a captain in the Spanish navy, was the first Greek to come to Victoria. He’ll be honoured in a heritage display. As well, 25 dance groups from across Canada and Europe will take the stage. But the food is not to be overlooked. In order to maintain the authenticity of Greek Fest, even the barbecues used to cook the lamb are being shipped from Greece. Last year, more than 30,000 people visited Greek Fest. Ikonomou hopes, rain or shine, people will again come out to enjoy the festival – which happens to be equipped with 1,100 covered seats should the West Coast rain roll through.

“We have a word in Greek that says philoxenia, which means we are friends to strangers,” he said. “We make everybody feel at home. It’s a really nice atmosphere and people here have a lot of fun.” The much-loved celebration of Greek food, entertainment and culture takes place at the Greek Community Centre, on now through to Sept. 5.

Proceeds from food sales on Wednesday and Thursday will benefit the Tillicum Elementary school hot lunch program and the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. Seniors also receive a 10 per cent food discount on Thursday. The festival runs daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. at 4648 Elk Lake Dr., beside Commonwealth Place. nnorth@saanichnews.com

The Donnelly Sideshow

From a pun-tastic professional stand-up comedian in a too-short tie to an obnoxious 16-year-old girl, Andrew Barber’s live characters prove he’s more than just an Internet sensation. Barber, star of the Boston Fan in Vancouver YouTube series, assumed four characters over the hour-long, one-man show, each cooly evoking raucous of laughter from the audience. Between sets, those not acquainted with Barber had a chance to sample some of his viral videos, notably Fantasticat!, a bizarre and hilarious peek inside the doors of a cat show, hosted by his lounge singer character Philippe-John Braynard. Fans of Barber’s videos should definitely check this out, as should anyone looking for a solid hour of laughs and a new means of procrastinating online. ★★★1/2 (out of five) Remaining showtimes: Sat.

Musicians team up for intimate café show Ryan Flaherty News staff

It’s been a busy year for Victoria’s Carli and Julie Kennedy. The twin sisters have played shows all over B.C. and recently released their second EP, Small Town Stories. They’ll soon head east for the Canadian Country Music Awards and a stint in Nashville, Tenn., but before that they’ve got a special gig planned right here at home. The show came about after the Kennedys attended the Vancouver Island Music Business Conference in Comox. That’s where the sisters met singer-songwriter Ellisa Hartman. “We became instant best friends,” Julie said. “We like each other’s style of music.

Health care assistants get cash assistance Students hoping to enter health care have a greater chance of getting a classroom seat this fall now that the province is funding 64 health care assistant spaces at Camosun College. The one-time $499,200 will cover 32 additional full-time and 32 part-time seats. “These intakes, in addition to our regular offerings, allow us to educate more students as frontline care providers in long-term care facilities and a variety of community settings,” said Barbara Herringer, dean of Camosun’s school of health and human services. “Faculty in this program assist students in acquiring the skills, knowledge and values they need to provide professional care to the elderly and those facing other health or illness challenges.” The program allows trained health care assistants to provide care to promote and maintain the physical, emotional, cognitive and social well-being of clients in a variety of institutional and community settings including home support agencies and residential care facilities.

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Eyes at School

We all know that a student should be able to read what the teacher writes on the board, but there is more to good vision than this. Vision skills including depth perception, eye co-ordination and even color vision can have an effect on a child’s performance at school. While parents and teachers recognize the importance of vision in the development and well being of children, there are youngsters who fall behind at school because of undetected vision problems. Today, some school districts perform vision screening for their students. These valuable screenings do catch many vision problems that result in a decrease in visual acuity. However, some vision problems may slip through the cracks and these screenings should not be confused with a thorough vision examination by a Doctor of Optometry. Teachers are often the first people to pick up a vision problem at school. An observant parent is also in an excellent position to pick up on any symptoms of vision problems in a young child. Although the following list isn’t considered exhaustive, signs to look for include: Covering an eye or closing an eye; squinting; turning or tilting the head to one side; rubbing the eyes; headaches; especially after reading; reports of blurred vision; and losing one’s place while reading. If there is any question about a child’s vision, a complete eye examination is recommended.

Oak Bay cyclist to wear maple leaf Athlete will compete for Canada at world road racing championships Travis Paterson News staff

It’s 10:30 a.m. and Adam de Vos’ bedhead hair might be hidden beneath his helmet, his sleepy eyes give him away on this summer morning. Decked in his Team Canada cycling jersey, de Vos walks his bike along Clover Point. “I really just got (out of bed) and came down here. It’s all training and sleeping right now,” said the teenaged cyclist who was recently named to Canada’s junior (U19) team for the UCI World Championships in Denmark, Sept. 20-25. The 17-year-old picked up a silver medal at the Western Canadian Games earlier this month, his last major competition. It’s been a steep rise. Ten months ago de Vos was a member of the Oak Bay Orcas swim team, racing at the regional level. Now he’s going international on cycling’s biggest stage. “I feel like it’s been a huge step. I’ve barely been home this summer with all the travel and races,” said de Vos. His hello moment as a cyclist came in June when de Vos broke out at the Canadian junior nationals in Burlington, Ont. He was fifth in the junior men’s road race, seventh in the time trial and sixth in the short-lap criterium. His consistency in all three disciplines got him noticed for Denmark, one of two junior cyclists from B.C. to make the team. The other is Brentwood Bay’s Annie Ewart. De Vos credits local cycling enthusiast Lister Farrar for starting a team at Oak Bay High to compete in the Victoria high school cycling league. “I knew I was done with swimming. If it wasn’t for the school league I’m not sure what I’d be doing.

De Vos made the transition from training in the pool five times a week to the bike just as he was starting Grade 12. “Once we got the team started de Vos was one of a half-dozen kids who kept coming out,” Farrar said. “His first race was the high-school category of the Bastion Square Criterium (June 2010). He wiped out but still made it back to the lead pack. That was something not many people can do.” Right away, de Vos said he knew he was able to keep up with the stronger cyclists. In his first full, high school racing season he won a couple of road races early. “That was what did it. Swimming taught me a lot, particularly how to train properly, and has led to my success,” de Vos said. “Being outdoors is a lot more entertaining and I’m winning at a much higher level than I did as a swimmer.” Before he raced the Western Canadian Games in early August, de Vos took part in the 2011 Tour de l’Abitibi, July 19-26 in Quebec. Abitibi is a junior competition with teams from France, the U.S. and Japan. De Vos managed the best finish by a Canadian, placing fourth on the seventh and final stage.

Juniors pump their tires

This summer, de Vos was one of seven Oak Bay High students to ride as part of the Tripleshot cycling club’s new under-19 racing team. De Vos will compete in the world championship road race but not the time trial. Junior women’s national road race and time trial champion Annie Ewart will do both. Ewart, who turns 18 the week following the world championships, nearly swept all three junior national races but was second in the criterium. Ewart rides with the Victoria Academy of Cycling junior team, also a fairly new program. sports@vicnews.com

Travis Paterson/News staff

Oak Bay’s Adam de Vos will compete for Canada’s U19 team at the UCI Road Race World Championships in Denmark, Sept. 19-25.

B.C.’s youth rugby squads won two golds, a silver and a bronze at the nationals in Calgary ending Aug. 21. Castaway-Wanderers players Mike Dalsin, Stephen Grdic, Fergus Hall, Sean Kinsella and Jeff Nishima Miller helped B.C.’s under-18 team to a 38-33 win in the national championship against Ontario. Both of B.C.’s U16 boys’ teams won medals with south Island help. Chris Myles from Saanich’s Velox rugby club was part of the B.C. No. 1 team that ran away with the national championship, clobbering Newfoundland in the final 88-5. Team No. 1’s biggest challenge was beating B.C. No. 2 in the semifinal 29-17 . Fellow Velox player Kyle Bodnarchuk was on B.C. No. 2 along with a trio of CastawayWanderers: Liam Aylesworth, Jack Nyren and Morgan Tate.
