Public needs say, developers told

‘I wasn’t sure I was pregnant’

Council rejects another project because of lack of consultation Kyle Slavin

Mother charged in death of newborn testifies before jury

News staff

A plan to dramatically change a Saanich neighbourhood’s skyline was rejected last week. A better effort at public consultation is needed, said council, if developers hope to proceed with plans for three six-storey buildings in the area known as the Cloverdale triangle. “You’ve come a long, long way,” Coun. Vicki Sanders told the applicants behind the Shire Condos, a 102unit complex proposed for Inverness Road and Quadra Street, which has come before council in a number of different incarnations over the past eight years. But she said making development decisions Artist’s rendering just to beautify an empty lot isn’t a smart way to approve projects. “This has to go back to the community.” It’s a comment that is often repeated to developers at council meetings. Several projects have been stalled or halted completely because of inadequate public consultation. In the case of the Shire Condos, their attempt at letting neighbours know about their plans was limited to a scarcely attended open house held one year ago. “You need to go back to listen to that community,” said Coun. Wayne Hunter. “And you’re going to get beaten up – but at least you’re out there. It’s important that everyone has the air time and everyone’s opinion is heard.” Coun. Judy Brownoff agreed, adding it’s about more than just paying lip service to the neighbours. “I think what developers feel is that they’re not going to get a consensus anyway on some aspects. But, for council, if we see you do that, have the consultation and you amend your project in some way, that’s a plus for you if we see that you’ve been working with the community,” Brownoff said.

Dog’s life Penny Stone, manager of the Victoria branch of the SPCA, holds threemonth-old Loopy Lucy, a beagle cross. Lucy suffers from seizures making her hard to adopt. See Page A3 for story on our local animal shelters and photos of some of the pets looking for a new home.

A 21-year-old Japanese exchange student who gave birth in the bathroom of a Saanich home, wrapped the newborn in a bag and left it in her bedroom testified Monday that she wasn’t confident she was pregnant. Narumi Bito was 20 when she was arrested last September, after the body of the baby was discovered. She said she made no plans to give up the baby, which she says was conceived in December with a former boyfriend. “Why not drop out of school or make plans to become a mother?” defence lawyer Christopher Mackie asked. “Because I wasn’t sure whether I was pregnant or not,” Bito replied, through a Japanese interpreter. Mackie, addressing the 12-person jury tasked with determining whether Bito is guilty of disposing of a body and offering indignity to human remains, said he anticipated Bito would testify about the night in the bathroom of a homestay host when she gave birth to a “fetus (that) showed no signs of life.” Bito told the jury she first suspected she may be pregnant in June 2010, two months before she was set to fly to Canada.

Adoption options abound Summer typically sees more animals in need of homes

ne year after the Victoria branch of the SPCA changed its policy around viewing cats, the animals’ rate of disease has dropped by half. “The cats would get so stressed that when people actually came Sheldon, SPCA to adopt, the cats were hiding,” manager Penny Stone said. The current rule requires anyone wanting to go into the cat room to take the time to begin the adoption process before viewing the animals. “The cats now are so much calmer.” And with the official start of summer, it’s full-blown kitten season at the Burnside Road SPCA where 195 of 358 adoptable animals are either adult or young cats. The shelter is currently housing one-third more animals than usual. Loopy Lucy, top, and Elmer, SPCA With less stress to the cats, improved health was inevitable, Stone said. Some of her favourite Jacob, SPCA animals, though, have been slow to be adopted. Kittens with hypoplasia (resulting from distemper during pregnancy), tend to stumble as though they’re intoxicated and deter potential owners, despite otherwise good health, she explained.

Your empty mailbox should be a little extra stuffed this week as Canada Post carriers deliver mail that has piled up since workers began initial job action in early June. The Crown corporation, which locked out workers on June 14, is open for business again after the federal government passed legislation on Sunday forcing the 48,000 Canada Post workers back to work. Members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, including mail sorters at the Glanford Avenue plant, resumed shifts Monday evening. Carriers were back on the street delivering mail by Tuesday when regular hours and services were also restored at Canada Post outlets. “Everybody wants to get to work since we’ve been without pay and benefits for some time now, but under (the government mandated) conditions it’s not good,” local CUPW president Janet Barnet said. The back-to-work law imposes wage increases over the fouryear contract, but leaves other issues up for arbitration over the next 90 days. Until that time, work will resume under the former contract that expired on January 31. Local CUPW members lauded

The local union has no intentions of defying the legislation, Barnet said. Rather, CUPW will fight for pensions through their support of the Canadian Labour Congress’s current campaign to increase the Canada Pension Plan benefits. In the week before the June 14

lockout, a “large volume” of mail had already piled up at the plant as a result of sorters not working overtime, Barnet said, unwilling to predict when Greater Victoria will be caught up with the backlog. “A lot of people thought we were on strike when we weren’t,” she said. “We were saying two weeks ago, unlock the doors and we’ll negotiate a contract but it never happened.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Success is being seen in the form of smiling faces bearing graduation certificates from the Atsikana Pa Ulendo (Girls on the Move) school in Malawi, thanks in part to local Rotary Clubs. Last Saturday the secondary school, near Lilongwe, Malawi, saw 72 girls graduate after completing four years of schooling. The project was supported by Rotarians across the country, including Oak Bay Rotary, which hosted the school’s co-founders in November 2008. “Our club gives a couple thousand a year towards the school fees for the girls, but we also put up $11,400

two years ago to put in a water system for the school,” said Oak Bay Rotary president John Edgell. “It is one of the treasured projects in the Oak Bay Rotary Club.” Rotary member Tricia Timmermans went to Malawi in 2005, before the school was built, and has made this school a focus of her attention for the last six years. Her motivation stems from the fact Malawi women are typically married off by the time they’re 14, their future already written. “These girls are now understanding that they are actual people, and are people with a choice. To me, that’s huge,” Timmermans said.

‘Passing the buck’ on deer Kyle Slavin News staff

Maintaining the status quo of essentially doing nothing to control the region’s deer population will result in a greater financial burden for different governments, and continued risk of injuries or fatalities from cardeer collisions, according to a CRD report presented last week. Saanich councillor Vic Derman, vice-chair of the Planning, Transportation and Protec-

tive Services Committee, says it took eight months to get a report stating something that was already wellknown. “It just says there should be essentially an inter-municipal committee formed. We need to get together with stakeholders, need to create a plan for action and need to look for ways to fund that,” he said. Derman brought forward a motion to Saanich council last October to create a munici-

The school provides girls with the experience to become self-sufficient through education, rather than having someone else make decisions on their behalf. “I think that the school has a great future,” Timmermans said. “These girls will have a great future, their families will have a much better future than what they would’ve had without an education.” For more information on the school, visit www.malawigirlsonthemove.com. - with files from Oak Bay News kslavin@saanichnews.com

pal deer task force, but Oak Bay Mayor Christopher Causton beat him to the punch at the CRD level. Both Derman and Causton sat in on a Ministry of Environment presentation about deer at the Union of B.C. Municipalities conference in September, where the province told municipalities that deer populations should be controlled by the provincial government, but that there is no money to do it. The CRD should expect to foot the $125,000 bill to get the ball rolling if the issue is enough of a priority to be budgeted into next year’s regional financial plan. “I’ve read the report … this doesn’t need to be studied,” Causton said. “I hate to make the pun, but it seems that everybody is just passing the buck, literally. No one seems to be taking responsibility for this. To me, it’s clearly a provincial responsibility.” Solving the deer problem, as indicated by the report, will likely require a number of actions, including modifying deer and human behaviours, amending government regulations and reducing the herd size. The integrated plan will require participation from local and provincial governments, as well as the general public. It is expected that an inter-municipal committee will be established and a significant public consultation process will have to be held. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Police plan connects with community No kissing babies, but new police policy resembles traditional political campaigning Kyle Slavin News staff

Your friendly, neighbourhood police officer is about to become more visible. Saanich plans to bring in a program that tasks officers with visiting community events, tournaments and large gatherings of people to connect with residents on a more personal level. “With the old police post program, which goes back about 14 years, we’d tell people where an officer was going to be and at what time,” Sgt. Dean Jantzen said.

“It was time to freshen up the program to afford our officers more flexibility. We will take on the politicians’ mantra of never passing by a large group of people without stopping to say hello.” Uniformed officers are usually at large events in the municipality, anyway, Jantzen said, conducting such duties as foot patrol or traffic control. The rebranded Community Connections program is an extra effort to reach out. “These will be frontline officers not impeded by logistical requirements at these events, free to enjoy ice cream and talk with people, share stories and break bread, wander around and interact with our constituents,” Jantzen said. The goal is to create personal connections between residents and officers, which isn’t possible when conversations are all problem-based and work-related.

“We will take on the politicians’ mantra of never passing by a large group of people without stopping to say hello.” – Sgt. Dean Jantzen “The connection between our department and this community is deep and well-entrenched, and we want to just grow that and expand upon what’s already there,” Jantzen said. The hope is that talking with an officer in a less formal setting will stimulate deeper connections, Jantzen said. “That means open dialogue and freer information sharing – that’s an outcome we hope to achieve.” kslavin@saanichnews.com

These rays are invisible to the eye, yet potentially harmful. Ultra-violet is thought to be absorbed mostly at the corneal level. This is the cause of “snow blindness,” an extremely painful condition. Recent evidence indicates that some UV may play a role in cataract formation and may also be one of the causes of macular degeneration. Misconceptions exist regarding sunglass selection and protection. It is true that you can’t tell how much UV a pair of sunglasses is blocking by the color or the density of tint. This doesn’t mean that UV light is difficult or expensive to block. An inexpensive pair of sunglasses that claims to block 100% of UV almost certainly does. The advantage of the more expensive brands lies in the quality of their optics and the visual comfort they afford the wearer. To get the best advice about sunglasses talk to an optometrist.

OUR VIEW

Finger-pointing on deer pointless Deer overpopulation is a problem that has been brewing for decades in the Capital Region. For most of those years, we have, as predominantly urban-dwelling individuals and families, thrilled at opportunities to see nature up close and personal. In recent years, however, that wonder has turned to anger, as deer find their way into gardens and gnaw away at flowers and other vegetation delicacies lovingly and painstakingly cultivated by homeowners. Outraged residents argue to local politicians, animal control staffers and the provincial Ministry of Environment that something has to be done. But the ministry claims it has no money to take action on the problem. So whose problem is it, anyway? Is it the fault of the underfunded MoE, which is charged with managing wildlife in urban, rural and remote areas? Or the Capital Regional District animal control specialists, whose main function to this point has been managing the dog and cat populations? We must come to grips with the fact there are unintended consequences of keeping natural predators of deer – mainly cougars – away from urban environs. People are safer, of course, but deer have been left to breed largely unchecked for years. The province clearly has no appetite to organize a cull or relocate deer families living here or any other urban area in B.C. Essentially it falls upon residents to take action, but not by arming themselves with various forms of weaponry. As representatives of the region, the CRD board needs to listen closely to the electorate to see if it’s an important enough issue to spend money on. If so, a committee could consult with say, a conservation officer to come up with a localized business plan for the professional and humane reduction of deer population. The plan would then be presented to the Ministry of Environment for approval. Sure, there will be outrage from animal lovers. But remember, if society is going to tolerate unnatural wildlife imbalances in urban areas, residents may have to stomach a cull. What do you think?

Making the right to mobility safe for everyone While shopping downtown recently I was literally run down from behind by a mobility scooter, a red Shoprider Flagship Scooter to be exact. The scooter was missing a front bumper and sported a hole in the cowl by the right front wheel. This combination enabled the driver to knock me down and snag my feet. People ran over to me while scolding the driver for going too fast, not paying attention, etc. They helped me up and offered to call paramedics. I declined, assuming that because I could walk I was okay. I finished my errands, drove home, and had a nap. When I woke up my feet were hideous black and blue balloons. Three hours in the emergency room and seven

X-rays late I was found to have extensive soft tissue damage. What if I’d been seriously hurt? There are no laws regulating motorized wheelchairs or mobility scooters. In fact, Section 2 of the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) states that the MVA and its regulations shall not apply to the driving or operation of a mechanically propelled invalid’s chair that is used only for the purposes for which it is designed. A disabled person in any type of wheelchair is considered a pedestrian who must follow pedestrian rules. So the result is fast, heavy machines, capable of carrying another 350 to 500 lbs, driven on sidewalks, by people with

physical and possibly intellectual challenges who are not regulated or monitored by any governing body or law enforcement agency. We have unlicenced and uninsurable vehicles and drivers on our sidewalks. Fast-forward 10 years from now: hundreds of aging baby boomers denied their driver licences will still demand their right to mobility. Can you imagine the traffic jams on the sidewalks? Making the right to mobility safe for everyone must be addressed sooner, rather than later. Lana Burns Saanich

Finding a good balance for parking Parking variances are becoming common practice for rezoning applications. But what is the optimal parking supply? Recently the majority of council supported a new six- and four-storey development on the corner of Tillicum, Burnside and Albina, providing 104 rental units from studio to two-bedrooms with den. This project will also have a commercial component on the main floor. Under our current parking policy 156 spaces are required for the 104 units plus 32 visitor spaces and nine commercial spaces. The project will build 62 residential spaces, nine commercial spaces and no visitor spaces except the use of eight of the commercial spaces from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. This is a 60-per-cent variance on residential parking and a 75-per-cent variance on visitor parking. This area around Tillicum Mall is designated as a major centre. There are five public transit routes that run on

Why must we wait for HST decrease? Finance Minister Kevin Falcon asks the taxpayers not to kill the HST to spite the government. What burns me about their proposition (aside from the fact that they’re using taxpayers’ money to promote their side) is that once they decided to implement the HST it didn’t take them long to do it, and, come hell or high water, it was done. Now that they say they’re going to reduce it to 10 per cent they emphasize the 10 per cent part and do their best to

average every 25 minutes in peak hours, and 30 minutes in off-peak times. There is a belief that on-street parking is available nearby. On street parking in the evening shows Albina is full and during the day, with school traffic, this neighborhood is under attack! The motion was to support these variances as a test case option, but what if it doesn’t work? What is the contingency, or will this neighborhood have to live with the test case results? The real issue is that Saanich needs to establish with neighbourhoods around major centres what the requirements are for parking or variances. Not having a plan may mean test cases that have no contingencies. We all agree that we need a balance investing in transportation, and with density on major transit and service corridors there may be less car usage. Judy Brownoff Saanich councillor

downplay the fact that they’re going to take four years to do it. Why is it taking four years to knock it down? The HST part is in place – it can’t be that complicated to knock two per cent off the machinery. I’m pretty sure the reason is so they can get four more years of the current HST out of us and fill their coffers to do whatever they want with the extra money. Christy Clark has a nice political smile and the basis of a realistic promise, but I don’t trust her or Kevin Falcon any more than I trust any politician nowadays. You want me to possibly vote to keep the HST? Drop it to 10

per cent right now! Larry Zilinsky Saanich

Reverting from HST is step in wrong direction If we could kill the HST tomorrow and go back to the old way of taxing we would be turning the clock back a year. Instead it will take two to five years untangling it all, while other jurisdictions in Canada and the rest of world are implementing an HST-style tax. Why would we want to do that?

Coun. Lief Wergeland said neighbours and the community association also need to make an effort to inform themselves, and ask questions of the developer throughout the whole process. It’s not enough to complain about a project at the 11th hour, he said. One of the most common problems is that even immediate neighbours aren’t always aware of what’s being planned next door. It’s unfortunate when that happens, Mayor Frank Leonard said, because public consultation is a “critical” part of the development process. The Shire Condos’ open house, held on June 22 last year, drew 19 neighbours who signed a guestbook. Five of those also noted their concerns about the height of the buildings. Last week, three neighbours voiced concerns about the height, which remains at six storeys, as well as the perceived lack of public consultation. kslavin@saanichnews.com

Project postponed ■ The June 20 application included three six-storey buildings (one 30-unit, two 36-unit). ■ Surface parking would be kept to a minimum, and a secure underground parking garage would accommodate residents’ cars. ■ Ten of the units would be guaranteed for low-income seniors. ■ Among councillors’ concerns was a confusing, four-lane entrance to the site off Inverness that would lead to both the front entrances of the buildings and the underground parking. ■ Concerns also stemmed from guidelines from Local Area Plans and the Official Community Plan regarding density and building height.


Assaulted officer’s twin brother helped push through new legislation Kyle Slavin News staff

The province’s first criminal charges handed out under a new law against injuring police service dogs could be laid against an East Sooke teen for kicking a Saanich police dog. Saanich canine officer Const. Jason Whittaker was instrumental in getting the B.C. law passed in late May – and, coincidently, his twin brother, Const. Justin Whittaker, and his dog Taz are believed to be the first victims who will be protected by the new law. Whittaker was called by Central Saanich Police last Tuesday night to help find a suspect. He and Taz tracked the suspect through dense bush along the ocean shoreline.

Don Denton/News staff

Saanich Const. Jason Whittaker with police service dog Brock. “In the process of being apprehended, the suspect kicked the police dog in the head several times and both the police service dog and the suspect fell into the water below,” said Cpl. Janis Jean, media liaison for Central Saanich Police. “The suspect, in an effort to escape arrest, tried to choke the Saanich canine officer.”

Neither Whittaker or Taz suffered serious injury, said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen. “His brother drove the legislation. This appears, to me, to be the first circumstance that fits with this service dog legislation in the province,” Jantzen said. This is a prime example, Jantzen said, of why Jason pushed for the legislation to protect the animals they work beside on a daily basis. “They’re certainly an asset to our community. Anything we can do to offer protection to them is important to us, and it’s important to our community.” A 16-year-old East Sooke teen faces numerous charges including assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and injuring a police service dog. Under the province’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act it is an offence to cause harm to a service animal. The penalty is up to two years in prison and/or a fine up to $75,000. – with files from Christine van Reeuwyk kslavin@saanichnews.com

Our mission is Leadership Building leaders. Building community.

To develop, support, and celebrate leaders who are passionately engaged in building a vibrant community.

LEADERSHIP VICTORIA AND VANCITY:

Making connections for a stronger community By Jennifer Blyth Black Press

From the perspective of first a participant and now a volunteer, Danella Parks knows first-hand about the many benefits of the Leadership Victoria program. A member of the program’s 2004-05 cohort, today Parks remains involved through her role as Community Development Manager for Vancity in Victoria, and by volunteering her time and talents in various capacities, from recruitment and selection to the Victoria Leadership Awards. “It’s about having an ongoing relationship with the community and seeing how all the different pieces can work together in so many ways,” Parks says, commending Leadership Victoria on the scope of the program. “Its breadth allows it to look at all aspects of the community and offers the opportunity to reach so many people across the community, bringing them together to work toward a common goal.” Founded in 2000, Leadership Victoria is a community-based, voluntary organization committed to developing, supporting and celebrating outstanding community leaders. Over the last decade, it has become the go

Vancity’s Danella Parks (bottom row, far right) and her fellow Leadership Victoria participants from 2004 -2005. to organization for community leadership in Greater Victoria, graduating more than 230 leaders from diverse backgrounds who continue to work to improve their community, and facilitating over 40 community action projects that span a wide range of themes, issues and partnerships. Leadership Victoria leads three essential initiatives: the signature ninemonth, experiential-based learning program; the annual Victoria Leadership Awards, in partnership with the Victoria Foundation, University of Victoria, Vancity and Rotary Clubs of Victoria; and special programming providing opportunities for key people

to gather and challenge conventional wisdom on pressing social issues. Quite simply, “Leadership Victoria believes the community’s future is in our hands,” explains Ivan Watson, alumnus and Leadership Victoria’s Communications Director. “Because community leadership can be taught and learned, as a community we are accountable for developing emerging leaders and ensuring the current generation passes on its skills and wisdom to promising new leaders.” As the community faces many challenges, experienced, trained leaders are required more than ever to tackle those challenges head on.

“Our program is designed to impact in three strategic ways: to equip individuals with the essential skills and knowledge of effective leadership; to benefit the community with an active network of engaged alumni; and to enhance leadership capacity in the workplace,” explains Jack Shore, Leadership Victoria’s Executive Director. “Many employers sponsor staff to take our program and they’ve found that their employees return with increased practical skills, greater understanding of organizational challenges, stronger cross-sector networks and enhanced motivation gained as part of high performance teams.” Such is the case with Vancity. Beyond Parks’ personal involvement with Leadership Victoria, Vancity is also involved at a corporate level, sponsoring staff as participants, making presentations, providing grant support for community action projects and community learning days, and sponsoring the Vancity Youth Award at the annual Victoria Leadership Awards. In all, for participants, volunteers, mentors and corporations, the benefits are many. “I invite anyone who is interested in Leadership Victoria to approach Jack (Shore) and learn about the many opportunities available,” Parks says.

Community Action Projects, 2010-11 Team Four Peace, with community partner South Island Dispute Resolution Centre Society Goal: To recommend strategies for delivering a conflict management/resolution program for elementary schoolaged students who are newcomers and may have language or cultural barriers. Two events with community stakeholders first explored what was happening and needed, then emphasized interaction to create an action plan where participants can now share resources, skills and arrange cross-organization opportunities to strengthen services for the children. Team Salmon – Bulldog Green Initiative, with community partner Belmont Secondary School & Climate Action West Shore Goal: To work with Belmont students to develop a sustainable, long-term recycling initiative. By surveying those affected and studying similar programs elsewhere, a communication strategy was created to help students and faculty better understand the importance of recycling.

Team Eggplant – Youth Action for Homelessness, with community partner the Greater Victoria Coalition to End Homelessness Goal: To engage youth and raise awareness of issues surrounding homelessness in the Capital Region. The team created a youth video contest, reviewed by high-profile judges, with prizes including laptops, educational bursaries, and scholarships for a local film school.

Vancity’s Maria McLeod, centre, and Team Fruit Salad

Team Fruit Salad – Growing the Good Food Box, with community partner the Capital Region Good Food Box Goal: To assist the Good Food Box to become a self-sustaining organization by securing one large or several smaller community agencies as long-term partners. Aiming to establish the University of Victoria as a venue for the public to order, pay for and pick up Good Food Boxes, the group identified main stakeholders, established a working relationship between the Good Food Boxes and campus sponsor organizations, and promoted the service at UVic.

THE ARTS Transporting his tricks to the Belfry stage Young magician plans to wow Victoria crowd Edward Hill News staff

I pick the nine of diamonds and throw it back in Camilo Dominguez’s deck of cards. He shuffles faster than I can see. He asks if my card is the 10 of hearts and I’m struck with worry – either he’s a lousy magician or I can’t remember anything beyond four seconds. He flips the 10 card under the Bicycle playing cards box, and somehow, of course, it’s flipped into my nine of diamonds moments later. Even under the all-seeing eye of a video camera, it’s hard to spot the cool sleightof-hand of the 21-year-old magician. The young son of Colombia has come a long way since wowing students in the halls of Belmont secondary with his preternatural talent to make the cards dance. Since graduating from high school in 2008, he’s honed his magic show at the Havana Club in Vancouver and is launching his first professional performances in Victoria, tonight (June 29) at the Belfry Theatre. “I’ve tried to move my magic to a different level,” Dominguez says. “I use two projection screens and a camera so the audience can see the magic close up.” He was drawn to sleight-ofhand as a child and attended the Bogota School of Magic as a teenager, before moving to Canada for high school. He learned the secrets of pulling rabbits from hats and sawing people in half, but he prefers the simplicity of a pack of cards. “At Belmont I was challenging

Edward Hill/News staff

Belmont secondary alumni Camilo Dominguez returns to Victoria for four magic shows at the Belfry Theatre this week. myself with the language and getting in front of people,” he says. “Now it’s more about surprising the audience with two hands and a deck of cards.” His four Belfry performances are titled “Continuum,” based on the theme of time and connections. His setup is simple and intimate: chairs for him and an audience member, a table, a deck of cards and video projectors to make sure the crowd doesn’t miss a beat. “For Continuum, I do tricks that are a challenge in 10 seconds or 20 seconds, whatever the audience asks for,” he says. “It’s about surprising the audience and surprising myself. Each show I try to make it fresh, but a show is set by the mood of the audience.” His parents are travelling to Victoria to see his show, the first time they’ve seen him perform outside of Colombia. That’s a big thrill, Dominguez says, and he hopes his friends from Belmont will also come out to see him on stage. Dominguez says despite the thematics, every performance is different and evolving. New

tricks come during interactions with audience members and friends, many who just throw out odd ideas. “My friends will say ‘make a card appear in a soccer ball or some different object,’” he says. “I go home and try to create it with the tools and skills I have.” He is in his final semester of theatre production school at Studio 58 at Langara College in Vancouver, part of his larger strategy to make a career as a working magician. Understanding the nuts and bolts of stage management – lighting, sound, set design – can be as critical as stage presence. It all must come together before the cards come out. “That is the most fascinating thing about magic. Anything you want, you can make it happen – with practice, of course.” Continuum shows at 8 p.m. tonight and Thursday, and 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $20, available at the Belfry box office or by calling 250-385-6815. For more details, visit www.camilothemagician. com. editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Stepping up at nationals Field hockey nationals spot lights Oak Bay teen Travis Paterson News staff

Oak Bay High student Maddie Secco will be taking full advantage of playing at home at the Senior National Field Hockey Tournament starting today at the University of Victoria. Secco will play for the junior national team, one of 10 women’s teams in the tournament. It’s full circle for Secco, who will play against a number of local seniors including Ali Lee, the St. Margaret’s grad who won the CIS championship with UVic in 2009. “It’s a funny story,” Secco said. “Lee coached me on the B.C. Summer Games team in 2008, and now when I train with the (senior team) we get to play together.” Their link goes back even further. Secco’s mom Debbie, a teacher and coach at St. Margaret’s, introduced Lee to field hockey. And though Secco only turns 17 this year it’s already her second nationals. She played with the 18-and-under B.C. team at last year’s tournament, also held at UVic.

The advantage of playing at home isn’t lost on Secco, who helped Canada’s U17 team win the Pan American Championship in November 2010. “When you’re on the road you can always call home, but it’s nice to have the support of friends and family on the sidelines cheering for you.” Carded and training with the senior national team since November of 2010, Secco has all but given up on other sports, though she’ll likely return to the Oak Bay Breakers soccer team next spring. “It’s pretty much all the best players in Canada so it’s really fun to measure yourself,” said Secco. “I haven’t been able to do a lot with the senior national team because of (commitments) with the junior team.” Secco isn’t the only youth field hockey prodigy coming out of Oak Bay High. The school’s recently named female-athlete-of-the-year, Kathleen Leahy, is set to play for the Vikes in September. Unfortunately, an injury will keep Leahy on the sidelines this week.

B.C. led schedule The four B.C. teams are in a 10-team women’s division made up of B.C. Blue, B.C. White, B.C. U18 White, B.C. U18 Blue, Alberta, P.E.I.,

All eyes are on the national team players as women’s coach Louis Mendonca is looking to select the Canada team that will play in the

Prize fighting returns to armoury Bay Street Armoury tradition carries on Travis Paterson News staff

Sixty-six years ago, 2,500 fight fans jammed the Bay Street Armoury to see the great Joe Louis dust his boxing opponent Bob Frazier. According to reports in Victoria’s daily paper on Dec. 11, 1945, Louis needed only one hand to defeat Frazier in a fight titled Veterans of France. Both Louis and Frazier fought in the Second World War. The armoury has a history of hosting prize fighting and on July 16 the historic courtyard will open its doors for Summer Slugfest V. “This is downtown, an exciting return to the (inner) city,” promoter and kickboxing trainer Stan Peterec said. “The past few years we’ve been on the West Shore with Western

Speedway and we’ve been in Saanich (Velox Rugby Club), but there’s nothing like having it in the heart of the city.” Peterec has held events in the armoury before, “but its been about 15 years.” Since then he’s fine-tuned the Slugfest series as Victoria’s premier annual fighting event for amateur boxing, kickboxing and mixed martial arts (the local Armageddon Fighting Championship is a professional, MMA platform only). And Peterec has tweaked Slugfest’s format once more by bringing back the King of the Ring tournament format among a card of regular Muay Thai and boxing fights. “There’ll be eight kickboxers with the finalists doing up to three fights. It’s not just fan friendly, the fighters love it too,” he said. That group includes Victoria’s Karl Bergen, who won his MMA match at AFC 6 on June 18. Alex Tribe, a rising Muay Thai

The Victoria Royals hockey team plays its first Western Hockey League game in Kamloops, the first of five exhibition games announced for early September. The Royals play five road games, starting with the Kamloops Blazers and Kelowna Rockets on Sept. 2 and 3. Victoria will then re-acquaint and renew its rivalry with the Vancouver Giants on Sept. 9 in Ladner and Sept. 10 in Maple Ridge. Victoria finally hosts its first WHL game since 1994 on Sept. 16 against the Kelowna Rockets at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. Training camp opens Aug. 20. The Royals’ 2011-12 regular season schedule will be announced on June 29.

Early roster for Rugby World Cup Coach Kieran Crowley has released the early, 50-man Canadian squad for the September Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. The final cut to a 30-man squad isn’t due until July. Among the 50, several are Victoria produced players and many others have strong club and developmental ties to the South Island. Ed Fairhurst, a 2007 World Cup veteran and St. Michaels University School grad, returns to the mix at scrum half, where he is in contention with another local, Sean White, who graduated from Oak Bay High. Other Oak Bay High products hoping to make the cut are second rower Mitch Gudgeon and fly half Connor Braid, as well as their James Bay teammate DTH van der Merwe at wing.

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.

Q: Dear BBB, I recently saw a brochure with the BBB’s Top Ten Scams of 2010 listed. I was shocked to see that you had listed some normal, reputable industries as being rife with frauds and scams. This seems like an unfair generalization and didn’t make sense to me. In fact, you even have some BBB Accredited Businesses operating in a few of the industries that were noted in your Top Ten list. I am confused; this seems hypocritical and doesn’t make sense to me? ~ Confused Consumer A: Confused Consumer, You are WRONG to assume that the BBB’s Top Ten Scams list is an attack on ALL businesses within specific industries. The purpose of the Top Ten Scams list is to identify for consumers and business the top 10 scams that had the greatest impact in our region. Sometimes these scams contain information about obvious frauds (i.e. Nigerian Letter Scams, Foreign Lotteries), other times they contain information about ongoing unethical business practices by SOME businesses operating within a specific industry. The purpose of these Scam Alerts is not to paint all businesses in one industry with the same tainted brush, but to identify unethical business practices occurring by some businesses. In almost every industry or business category there are businesses operating legitimately and ethically, and businesses that are not. By “identifying the bad” the BBB is better able to emphasize the importance of doing business with reliable, reputable, trustworthy businesses (such as BBB Accredited Businesses, who have been screened and agree to abide by our Standards of Trust and Code of Business Practices).

Q&A with Joel Lowry The News talked to Joel Lowry, who was drafted 140th overall from the Victoria Grizzlies to the Los Angeles Kings on June 24 Born in 1991, Lowry was passed up at last year’s draft, his first year of eligibility. Thanks to a successful B.C. Hockey League season, scoring 67 points in 42 games, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound forward earned the attention of the Los Angeles Kings. Lowry was part of a unique draft for Victoria Western League and BCHL fans as Joel’s 1993-born brother Adam (6-foot-4, 187 lbs) was also selected on Friday, 67th overall to the Winnipeg Jets from the Swift Current Broncos. Joel is headed to the Cornell Big Red of the NCAA for the 2011-12 season.

Even though (our) dad was there we never really talked about it. I actually went to the gym (near our Calgary home) and missed the beginning of the draft. I watched just in time to see my brother (Adam) and myself get picked.

Q: Your father Dave is an assistant coach with the Calgary Flames. What kind of interest did you get from them and how did it go compared to the Kings and other teams? A: I know my dad talked to them about (Adam and I). A couple of other teams talked to me. Mostly I was (just) hoping there were teams interested. I never actually talked to Calgary.

Q: Only two current BCHL players were drafted. Were you surprised there weren’t more, considering your competition this year? A: I was a little surprised. Josh Manson (of Salmon Arm) was drafted (160th) but wasn’t even ranked. I was really expecting Destry Straight (Coquitlam) to get drafted after being so highly touted.

Q: Did you go to the NHL Draft in Minneapolis? A: Adam and I didn’t go Adam was iffy about going.

Q: Have you talked to former Grizzly and future Cornell teammate Dustin Mowrey about what to expect this year?

Q: What was it like watching the NHL Draft? A: It was both really exciting and relieving to have it over with. Sitting and watching, I was getting sick to my stomach. I don’t know how those (projected) first rounders do it when they slip (to lower spots) and don’t go so high.

Don Denton/New staff

Recently drafted to the L.A. Kings, Grizzlies’ product Joel Lowry was born in St. Louis and then lived in San Jose before playing major midget hockey in Calgary. A: I just talked to Mowrey for a long while the other day on what to do this summer to get ready. I’ll also know a bit more about how it’s going to go with the Kings in the next couple of weeks. I’m sure they’ll have high expectations. Q: Have you talked to fellow Grizzlies who were talked about but weren’t drafted? A: Madison Dias said he wasn’t expecting anything but I had my fingers crossed for him (and for Pearce Eviston).

They go back into the draft (just like Joel did) next year and I’m sure there’ll be more interest. Q: Do you feel any added pressure going to your first training camp for the Cornell Big Red as NHL property? A: You still have to earn your ice time going in (to camp). There’s already a few guys who’ve been drafted and I’m one of three freshman coming in who were just drafted, and we’ll all be fighting for spots. sports@vicnews.com
