Council responds to complaints about councillor Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

On April 4, 2011, council resolved to retain an independent investigator with expertise in relation to respectful workplaces to investigate alleged conduct by one of its council members. The investigator interviewed complainants as well as the councillor and delivered a confidential report to District of Sooke council setting out the investigator’s findings in relation to the complaints.

The investigator reported to council on a confidential basis, and recommended that council take certain actions in response. These include adoption and commitment to new policies, training programs, better orientation for new councillors, and an agreement between the district and the councillor setting out responsibilities and facilitating council activities. All members of council received this report in-camera on June 27, 2011, and council members had the opportunity to

discuss policies and procedures to improve its practises. On May 9, 2011, council unanimously adopted six policies, which include a Respectful Workplace Policy and an AntiHarassment Policy. All council members and district officers will be required to provide a signed acknowledgement that they have read the policies and agree to comply with them. Further, the district will be implementing a comprehensive training program for employees and council mem-

bers in order to follow up on its commitment to provide a workplace that is free from harassment, mistreatment and bullying. The district and the councillor, the mayor, and all other councillors have agreed to the implementation of the recommendations made by the investigator, and the councillor has agreed to limit his contact with staff to ensure constructive engagement and to facilitate his full participation in council business.

Art in the park Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

There’s a new art display in town, and it’s not where you might expect. About 45 kids and a handful of volunteers came together last week to redecorate two of the walls at the Sooke skatepark, under the guidance of skateboard coach and community volunteer Debbie Qayum. “It’s for the kids -- I’ve been trying to put a positive light on skateboarding, trying to break (the negative) stereotype” said Qayum. Working with the District of Sooke, and the Capital Regional District, the project was about three years in the making. Qayum first got the idea while helping with the skateboarding exploratory program at Journey middle school, and was tired of seeing all the “really rude stuff” that was tagged everywhere at the skatepark. Qayum handed out surveys to about 400 people at schools and other places in the community and said 98 per cent of responses were in favour of the project. Several sponsors came on board to help with the project, including Sooke Citizens on Patrol, Sooke RCMP and SEAPARC. The local Home Hardware also donated over $1,000 worth of paint and supplies. There were also five prizes awarded for categories such as best art. The kids initialed their contributions and Qayum did the judging, she said. Born on the island, Qayum has lived in East Sooke for the last 13 years and has two teenage boys whom she credits with her participation in the sport. “My kids were interested so I said ‘let’s go for it!’ And then I end up dragging them half the time, and now I love it.” Qayum recently started a new business called SideStep, where she will be offering group skateRiverfront 14 Acres boarding classes as well as one-on-one instruction 2875 Phillips Rd. starting July 5 at John Stubbs Memorial school in Beautiful farmland in the ALR.

Sooke electors nix EPCOR deal Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

“Sooke’s Real Estate Professional”

Sooke’s #1 Realtor for 14 consecutive years*

TESTIMONIAL #142

The electors were then left to make up their minds. The AAP needed 975 votes or 10 per cent of the eligible voters to pass. Wendal Milne said the door-knocking resulted in a strong representation of the thoughts of about 40 per cent of the people of Sooke in regard to this 21-year deal. He said comments were that the 21-year deal was too long; and the district failed to look at a competitive process. “What bubbled over was a frustration with the current council and the perception that a lot was done in secret,” said Milne. “For some it was just the perception, right or wrong.” He thinks the district should sign a one-year deal with EPCOR and then look at other options. “All I want is the best deal for the citizens of Sooke,” Milne said.

Sooke News Mirror

At the start of the CRD board meeting on June 29, every regional director received a brown paper bag with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The sandwich was in response to previous comments made by Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Director Mike Hicks to the Sooke News Mirror in regard to the Dogwood Initiative and its student “army” eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on summer holiday. “They took my comments with a great spirit of humour,” Hicks said. “It was refreshing that they can enjoy the humour.” Included in the agenda for the meeting was the Marine Trail Holdings application which would have gone to first and second reading and then a scheduled public

hearing, if Land Use Committee A gave it the go ahead. Instead Director Vic Derman, a Saanich councillor, asked staff to look into a number of decisions made in Central Saanich that were inconsistent with the Regional Growth Strategy (RGS). The RGS was being used by opponents of the Marine Trail Holdings development proposal as reasons for not allowing the resort development to go forward. Hicks made a motion to change the order of the agenda to move the Marine Trail Holdings Ltd., Rezoning Application further up, but this was defeated and the application will come forward at the July 13 board meeting. “If they don’t deal with it on July 13, I won’t subject my alternate Wally Vowles to deal with this,” Hicks said, adding the application would then have to wait until September.

“It is a total injustice to the applicant, the process and all the people involved,” said Hicks. “I’m almost powerless against the full might of the CRD Board, if they want to exercise their power.” He said the board was procrastinating and all this was doing was delaying the process and driving wedges between people, directors and groups. “My goal is to get on with it one way or another. This is festering now because of the CRD Board – it is not my style,” Hicks said. Almost 50 speakers turned up to the June 29 meeting, and CRD staff had to bring up visitors one or two at a time because the sixth-floor boardroom was over-capacity. Staff set up a teleconference room on the main floor for additional visitors. - with files from Emma Prestwich editor@sookenewsmirror.com

For the past six years, EPCOR Water Services has been operating and maintaining the wastewater treatment plant in Sooke. Council was considering entering into a 21-year agreement with the company for their services but the electorate said “no.” An Alternate Approval Process (AAP) had been initiated and 2,036 electors said they were opposed to the long term agreement. “This is the democratic process at work,” said Mayor Janet Evans, “We have heard from the public and council will now consider options for going forward for the operation of our wastewater system.” There was a concerted campaign of door-to-door knocking where community members got the AAP into the hands

of homeown“This is the ers. Grassroots town hall meetdemocratic process ings, letter at work …council writing, and advertising on will now consider the opposition side brought the options for going issue to the fore forward” front in the com– Mayor Janet Evans munity. A Fair Sewer Services for Sooke committee comprised of mayor hopeful Wendal Milne, Rick Kasper, former MLA and District of Sooke councillor and current Councillor Herb Haldane spearheaded the drive for a ‘no’ vote. Joining in the campaign against the 21-year agreement was a group called Sooke Water Watch supported by COPE 491. The District of Sooke sent out information from its perspective outlining the benefits of having EPCOR continue operating and maintaining the plant.

Sooke comedian wins national contest

Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

Kevin Banner is officially one of the funniest people on the Island. And he just happens to be born and raised in Sooke. Banner came back from the east about a week ago with a heavier wallet after a successful appearance on a televised competition to find Canada’s funniest stand up talent. Called Stand Up & Bite Me, the show is hosted by Colin Mochrie from Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and is shown on Bite. ca, a speciality cable channel. “I never thought I would get flown out to Toronto,” said Banner, who was accepted into the contest after sending a 15 minute demo tape. He won $5,000 for beating out seven other contestants in an online poll (his routine was put on the Bite.ca website and garnered the most clicks). Banner has been very active in the comedy scene both in Sooke, where he does a monthly show at Mulligans, as well as Victoria where he is a regular fixture at Hecklers Bar & Grill. He’s done 70 or 80 shows so far this year at the only venue for comedy in the city. But the road to success has been a long one. “I’ve been doing (stand up) for six years – I’ve been funny for about 18 months,” Banner said. Now 28, Banner said when he was in high school he wanted to be a professional wrestler. “I went down to California to do a boot camp thing and

Sooke comedian Kevin Banner, back from Toronto after winning $5000 in a Toronto comedy competition. it hurts, (in comedy there’s) a lot less folding chairs to worry about.” Stand up was something he always wanted to do, but never seriously pursued. “The whole thing of writing my own material – I didn’t think it was something I could do.” Tired of working odd jobs, Banner decided to pick up the phone and start calling local pubs and clubs to see if he could get a spot during open mic night. When he started out, Victoria didn’t have much of a comedy scene, he said. “It’d be 10 guys doing Jack Johnson and Sublime covers on their acoustic guitars, and then I’d do stand up. It was always kind of awkward.” He started out doing shows at Logan’s Pub in Victoria, while performing here and there in Sooke. It wasn’t until he got to Hecklers that his career started to take off. About a year and a

half ago, Hecklers started having amateur comedy nights once a month. Now it’s featured every second Sunday. “For the longest time it was just me – I wasn’t learning much, I wasn’t growing much. And now Hecklers being there has just been monumental for that.” Banner currently collaborates with some of the top Canadian performers – he opened for Alberta funnyman Dan Quinn on New Year’s Eve at Hecklers, and is bringing in another Albertan performer, Graham Clark, to a show in Sooke. Clark has appeared on HBO and has his own Comedy Network special, Banner said. You can see Clark, as well as musical comedian Wes Borg at Mulligans this Friday at 9 p.m. Tickets are $6 at the pub. For more information, visit Stump Ranch Comedy on Facebook or @BANNERkevin on Twitter.

OUR VIEW

Feast or famine? As the controversy, arguments and tempers continue to rise over the proposed development in the Juan de Fuca Rural Resource Lands, people are forgetting about the farmable lands which are being swallowed up by subdivisions and encased in concrete. Common sense appears to have flown out the window when it comes to undeveloped property. On one hand you have a relatively small development on 236 hectares surrounded by over 131,000 hectares of forest lands and a provincial park. On the other hand you have many small properties surrounded by thousands of hectares of development. Now wouldn’t you think the “activists” would be rallying their forces to protect those small bastions of agricultural land? Land that can still be used to feed people. Land that supplies some green space in the forest of concrete and steel. Densification really is an ugly word. It brings forth images of concrete jungles, houses crammed one up against another, and tiny, tiny oases of parched lawns where children can play. That is urban sprawl, that is what we shouldn’t want. If all of the energy that has been spent on opposing the Marine Trail Holdings development was expended on saving our precious, useable agricultural land then we would be accomplishing something more worth while. Even there, one has to use a little common sense and save those lands which can be used for agriculture and farming, not just any old chunk of land without buildings on it. Reason should prevail and we should be taking stock of what we still have as far as our land “bank” goes. You won’t grow much of a garden in the Juan de Fuca lands, but you can grow a lot in areas such as Saanich, North Saanich, and further up Island. As the placards protest the JDF development, attention is being diverted away from what is really happening to our land. Put that youthful energy and idealism into fighting for farm land. Recreational land will remain recreational if we save it for that. Farm land is what is being squandered and sold to development. What is your priority? Food or forest?

Densification really is an ugly word.

YOUR VIEW

WE ASKED YOU... Do you think we are saving enough agricultural land for the future?

“Not really, it never is (enough). And I think it’s going fast.” -George Mowez

“I don’t think there’s a plan to preserve the ruralness of Sooke. There’s a blanking out of farms and rural land.”

“There’s certainly more of an awareness and more need to protect it, but I think we need to be more proactive about it.”

-Bev McFayden-Hill

-Brenda Finstad

“Definitely not in Metchosin, and especially around Langford with those developments.” -Joanna Gower

ANOTHER VIEW

Open letter to the District of Sooke To the District of Sooke: As it’s not clear how much of this council is aware of, I have taken the liberty of forwarding it. It is nothing short of astonishing that long time Sooke residents like Mayor Evans and Councillor Dumont do not inform staff from personal knowledge that the owner of the Harbourview road system, Eric Bernard, intended that it be freely used by the public, and that the public did so for decades. That applies equally to the provincial government for the section of road that runs through the Sooke Provincial Park, as staff would know if they bothered to review the historical account rendered by Elida Peers and published in the Sooke News or simply asked passers-by on the streets of Sooke. That constitutes the two parts of a common law dedication – intention by the owner and acceptance by the public, one of the statutory means the Transportation Act sets out for how a highway comes to be dedicated, which staff would also know if they bothered

to read the Transportation Act. Being a lawyer is not a prerequisite to the ability to read. That this remains an ongoing issue for over 10 years is, like the sewer deal, a representation of just how disconnected this administration is from the interests of the public that voted it in. From the initial parking lot zoning, to the wholesale giveaway of $187,000 in rezoning area fees in the zoning bylaw review and 20 per cent of the taxable land base of the district, not to mention the lost intangible value to quality of life offered by close access to community lakes, this administration has simply rolled over and handed it all to CRD Parks with no concession. What did the district get? Nothing but a gate, a one size fits all park plan, and further frustration of the public interest in access to our lakes, which, by the way, are Crown land and do not belong to the CRD. The province’s written request that provision be made for public access to Crown holdings has been similarly ignored. People from all over the CRD

would come to Sooke to take the kids to the lake, if they could. This issue is not, as Mr. Parliament apparently wishes and hopes, settled “for once and for all.” There seems to be a collective amnesia over all of the discussion in council leading the public belief that there was a will to use district control of the zoning as a negotiating asset to bargain for the public interest. Negotiation using zoning was the political solution. What remains is the blunt legal fact that Harbourview is a highway, and no sell-out of Sooke by this administration derogates that. The proper process is removal of the highway dedication through due process, not a simple minded assertion that the road doesn’t exist because it’s not in the provincial highways inventory. It is as likely that the voting public of Sooke will accept removal of the dedication as it was that we would accept having the sewer deal shoved down our throats. Terrance Martin director South Island Recreation Association


SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, JULY 6, 2011

A sweet success The Strawberry Tea and take-outs event, held at Knox Presbyterian Church on June 22 was an overwhelming success. A highlight was when Bill Dryden piped in four RCMP officers. To everyone’s delight they were dressed in their red serge as they served to guests cake, strawberries, whipping cream and tea. Earlier 285 of the take-outs were delivered to Sooke stores as an outreach project. We wish to thank the Sooke News Mirror for their article in the paper and the Sooke business community for their support. Proceeds from this Strawberry Tea will be used for the work at Knox Presbyterian Church and the Women’s Missionary Society. Amy Chwojka, convenor

Lower taxes for residents The number of voters opposing the sewer deal illustrates exactly how disconnected this administration is from the electorate, and the monthly bill from EPCOR further illustrates exactly how bad the deal was. The monthly bill from EPCOR is $69,415.49. Add that to principal and interest for the system, and it’s only $463 per parcel, not $515. Absent the fact that the monthly rate is considerably less than the 21-year contract rate, one is left to wonder what the remaining $52 of the increased $515 parcel tax is really for, since we’re stuck with it with or without the EPCOR deal. It looks to me as though this administration planned to gouge the existing rate payers to subsidize the sewer extension east of the river. Kaltasin Road properties are not getting developed without it. In 2003 the District spent $3,509,497. In 2004, the first year of Janet Evans as mayor, it spent $10,835,532. In 2005 it spent $19,914,894. In 2006 it pulled back to $6,253,739 and it has increased every year since, to the 2011 budget of $15,294,991. The budget through 2015 averages $14,996,549 p/yr. The legacy of this administration should scare the pants off any-

The filly is the first to make such an arrival at the popular horse haven. one that owns property, particularly those on a fixed income. The Sooke Committee for Lower Taxes has been struck to brainstorm solutions to this mess, which, according to the Mayor’s statement in council prior to the sewer petition, could include Sooke being sued by EPCOR for not giving them the deal. I look forward to hearing from voters with an interest. There are solutions other than raising property taxes to crippling levels, and come the November election I would like see a council prepared with solutions. Terrance Martin Sooke

No appetite to change CRD policy Let’s see... time for the facts Mr. Martin. 1) CRD owns the sea to sea park. They have a policy of no OHV traffic period. That policy underwent a thorough public consultation process and the public deemed it necessary to restrict motorized access to this park. 2) MoT has investigated said private road and have concluded that said road is indeed private for no evidence suggests otherwise. 3) District Solicitor provided legal opinion which categorically concluded two realities... One, CRD Regional Park is outside DOS jurisdiction. Any local issue arising from Sooke Council must be directed to our CRD

representative, which is myself and delivered at CRD board for discussion. Two, road in question is private. No public funds were ever expended on said road. 4) Ombudsman office thoroughly investigated this file as a result of a complaint laid by Mr. Martin. Ombudsman office concluded that no improprieties were evident on behalf of the municipality as alleged by Mr. Martin. As a result of the above, they have now closed the file. 5) The zoning, the taxes, etc are irrelevant points. Not germain whatsoever to the above noted facts. 6) If user groups wish to lobby the CRD to change the said policy, then they should channel their energies and focus on the CRD parks policy and the CRD administration. I fail to see the confusion here? Even if the DOS disagreed with the CRD policy of no motorized access to regional parks....we would need to convince the CRD board and I have made it patently clear there exists zero political appetite to change the existing policy. Mayor Janet Evans

A lot of helping hands at bike club AGM Last night, (June 24) the Sooke Bike Club held its Annual General Meeting, and our first ever mountain bike film festival at the Prestige Hotel here in Sooke. Apart

from Darcy Turenne’s film, which was shot in Bali, almost all the movies shown were filmed either here in Sooke, or elsewhere on the south island. Lots of talented Sooke riders were featured in these films, as Sooke somehow seems to breed the toughest, most skilled riders of any place I’ve been. Similarly, the skill shown by the film makers was extraordinary, and a big tip o the hat to Pelle Gustavs- a Sookie- whose fresh perspective and bright vibe was a real highlight of the evening. The Sooke Bike Club has been registered with BC as a non profit society for the past 4 years, and this is the first time we’ve been able to hold our AGM somewhere other than the bike shop. It was a really big deal for us. It feels like the club is finally coming of age, and the venue which Prestige provided us was just the kick start we needed to bring our efforts to the next level. There are currently plans underway to hold a mountain bike festival in Sooke, and the Prestige will no doubt play a crucial role in that. I just wanted to give a shout out to Bonnie Sprinkling and the District of Sooke staff who not only supported the club’s effort to start a mountain bike film festival, but who handily facilitated our effort to secure the Prestige venue. A huge thanks as well to the Prestige Hotel, and particularly to Krista and Jacob for ensuring that all our

www.sookenewsmirror.com

needs were met, for providing the space free of charge for our society. They went to great lengths to ensure that we had everything we needed, and when we found that we were lacking a cable to make the sound work, Krista jumped into her car and bought us one at Home Hardware. In fact, I think she cleaned them out, buying any cable which looked like it would work! It was personally important to me that our event was attended by a Sooke council member. David Bennett is a progressive, forward thinking, open minded individual, and he really seemed genuinely excited about the club and what we are striving toward. It was great to have you there Dave, thanks so much for coming out and showing your support for what we’re about! If anyone reading this is interested in finding out more about The Sooke Bike Club, please visit our website at www.sookebikeclub. com, and/or friend us on Facebook. Our film festival and AGM went off great, and we’re very excited to grow this event into something that will gain wide recognition. With the ability to use such a scenic and well supported venue, which the Prestige offers in spades, it’s easy to imagine how big and cool this will become in the coming years. Lorien Arnold Sooke

Continued from A9 will save the park and trail from future degradation and damages. I think it will do the opposite and our worst fears of damages will soon be realized. a) If this development is denied, the seven large upland lots upon which the development is situated will be sold individually to wealthy people who will build a large home with a view on each lot. b) Extensive clearing, probably to the park boundary may occur to enhance views, as well as other clearing and logging to develop that lot. c) the lots and park boundary could be fenced which will affect natural animal corridors and could possibly cut off the trail where it trespasses on private lands. d) Gravel extraction from a developed gravel pit can also be expected. Our pleasant view of the rain forest from the highway would be significantly altered for the worse. One way to stop the sale and normal developments of these large lots is to buy them all. However, at the last

LETTERS count, there were no CRD or B.C. government funds available. Besides, I doubt if any government funds would be forthcoming when the owner is wiling to protect the park by 98 hectares of park dedication. He is also willing to protect the rain forest by placing an additional 105 hectares under covenant. This is not an open housing development, it is a soft environmental footprint with the cabins within the trees at a minimum distance of 150 metres from the trail. So, once you contemplate the almost certain destruction caused by normal development of these large lots, you may conclude that the best way to protect the park is to allow this development to succeed, with its guaranteed protection. These issues were crystal clear to the seven member land use commission that voted 5-2 in favour of the application. G.B. Miller Shirley

Alternative review process not “blackwater coalition” I am writing in response to Mr. Shortt’s letter last week. I was invited by the organizers of the event to provide an update on the progress that the Fair Sewer Services Committee was making in relation to the alternative review process on the 21-year sewer deal. That is what I did. I take no pleasure in having to go through a process like this, rather am disappointed it has to get to this stage. The Fair Sewer Services committee has always used the figures provided by the District of Sooke in the proposed contract and in their financial statements, as well as their long term projections, to evaluate the contract. The District of Sooke has been unable to explain adequately, in our opinion, the reason for a 21-year contract. They also have in our

opinion not been able to explain the massive increase between what the new contract states and the cost projections provided prior to 2006. It is unfortunate that Mr. Shortt chooses to describe legitimate questioning of the figures provided as “fearmongering.” I don’t see the numerous people involved in the alternative review process and the 2,000 plus people who signed petitions as a “black water coalition” out of touch with the community of Sooke, as

described by Mr. Shortt. I see a group of concerned citizens, trying to do what is best for families who struggle to pay rising taxes and rising sewer fees. The Fair Sewer Committee estimates that only approximately 40 per cent of the households in Sooke were contacted so when compared to the number of voters, 3,500 or so in the last election this response was overwhelming, and clearly representative of the community. I am not nor do I intend to be involved in any coalition for the upcoming election. Wendal Milne Sooke

Campfires required Fatality reported at Fairy Lake to shrink by half

Bus driver turned bomb squad

New regulations on campfire size came into effect July 1 to reduce the risk of human-caused wildfires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we head into peak camping season I want to remind people that more than 850 fires resulted from careless human behaviour in 2009. That number must come down,â&#x20AC;? said Forests and Range Minister Pat Bell. Under the new regulations, campfires cannot be larger than 0.5 metres in height and 0.5 metres in diameter. Previously, campfires were permitted to a maximum size of one-metre by one metre. Failure to comply will result in a $345 fine. An additional $345 fine will be levied for campfires lit during a ban.

B.C. Transit driver Glenn Dickie has dealt with high-pressure situations before in his job, but nothing like last week when he was handed a potential bomb. Dickie was just pulling out of the University of Victoria when a student passenger approached him with a package that looked like an explosive device. Keeping his cool, Dickie held onto the object and looked for a safe place to empty his bus, which had about a dozen people on it. The the bus empty and isolated in a UVic parking lot, Saanich police arrived to examine the suspicious package, which turned out to be a fake.

The body of 50-year-old Patrick Doherty of Duncan was found dead on Sunday morning near the shore of Fairy Lake by Port Renfrew. The camper went missing the previous night and Juan de Fuca search and rescue went looking for him with no luck. Sooke RCMP reported initial evidence suggested Doherty had been drinking prior to entering the lake on the evening of Canada Day. The coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigation continues, but indications are that Doherty suffered a heart attack. Foul play is not suspected in the incident. RCMP were initially approached at a road check by Dohertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend who said his friend had gone missing in the lake.

Logger sports are a staple of Sooke Canada Day celebrations. This shot is from the 2006 event at Sooke Flats.

Photography is a popular segment in the show and though it may seem like a tricky art to demonstrate on site, Savoy says it has been done to good effect in the past. A photographer had a computer set up to show how photos can be manipulated and

enhanced in a creative, artistic fashion. In some cases, such as metal sculpture and welding, for example, an outdoor area (with all appropriate safety precautions, of course) may be used. Maureen says the best demos are the ones that get the most “hands on.” The interactive nature of the demos, therefore is vigorously cultivated. All in all the demos are a valuable component to the Sooke Fine Arts Show – artists get to share their passion and raise their profile in the process, while the public gets a close look a something very interesting, and in many cases they can even try their hand at it. Sooke Fine Arts 2011 runs from July 23 to August 1 at the SEAPARC Arena, 2168 Phillips Road.

!

fter 25 years of of staging the annual Sooke Fine Arts Show the organizers have “gone to school” on what works well and what could work even better. As always a good variety of submissions is hoped for, across a broad range of artistic mediums. Making the show appealing in every way possible is the challenge for the volunteers who turn the exhibition into a reality. The show runs for about ten days each summer but hard work goes on for many weeks and months on each side of the event. The artist demonstration is one consistently popular facet of the show and it’s easy to understand why. Seeing the creative process up close can be every bit as compelling as a finished work of art. The demos are entertaining and beneficial for the onlookers and the artists who take part. Maureen Savoy has been coordinating this attraction for the past number of years and described many of the details in a June 18 conversation with the Sooke News Mirror. Once the slate of successful applicants has been determined, the forms are examined. On the application is a box the artist can check off whether they wish to be considered as a demonstrator. Those selected are paid for their time, $50 per two-hour demo, and volunteers help them with set-up and tear down in the gallery at the opposite end from the lobby. “There are three slots per day,” informed Maureen, “11 to 1, 2 to 4 and 6 to 8, two artists at a time.” She noted that care is taken to ensure artists are paired with those of different disciplines.

Cute and cuddly but leave them alone They’re cute and defenceless - and they may look lonely - but baby deer and other wild animals should not be touched or moved. Every year, well-intentioned people try to “rescue” fawns and other young ungulates mistakenly thought to be orphaned, but these interventions do more harm than good. Mother deer, elk and other species may leave their young alone for long periods. To avoid attracting predators, a mother may only return a few times a day to nurse. When she does return, she can be expected to defend her baby from real or per-

ceived threats - including nearby humans and their pets. Remember: It’s typical for young ungulates to lie quietly in vegetation for hours at a time, especially in the first two weeks of their lives when they’re not strong enough to follow their mothers. Fawns are as small as a cat when born, and their camouflage and lack of scent hide them from potential predators. Although these babies may look abandoned, they are not. However, if humans remove them from their rest spots, they can end up being orphaned. If you see a baby

deer, elk or moose, stay away. Keep your children and family pets away, too, because they could be injured. Their fawns and calves are helpless and their mothers protect them from real or imagined threats. This means humans of all ages and their pets within reach. Give them lots of room when you are nearby. Quick Facts: • If you find a fawn that you think may be orphaned, these are things that you should do: • If the fawn is lying quietly and appears uninjured, leave it alone. It is normal for a mother deer to leave

her baby alone for periods of time. Remember that the mother deer will be wary of you and is likely watching you, so your presence in the area could discourage her from returning. Leave the area. • Keep pets away from the area. • If you think the fawn is not being cared for by its mother, return the next day to check on it. If it is in the exact same spot and bleating, it may be orphaned. • If you do believe the fawn is orphaned, or if it is injured, contact the Conservation Officer Service at 1 877 952-7277 or a wildlife rehabilitator as

soon as possible, but do not touch or move the fawn. If you know the fawn is injured or orphaned (i.e., there is evidence the parent is dead) it will need prompt attention and you should make contact immediately. • It is important to handle deer orphans carefully and minimize human contact in order to give them the best chance of surviving and returning to the wild. To find a wildlife rehabilitator near you, visit the Wildlife Rehabilitators Network of British Columbia at: h t t p : / / w w w. w r n . bc.ca/find_a_wildlife_ rehabilitator.htm

Cafe owner follows his passion Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

The Stick owner David Evans recently came back from a trip to Columbia, and brought back with him a renewed appreciation for coffee. Evans was in Bogota for the 11th annual World Barista Championship, a competition showcasing the best of the best coffee artistes around the world. “It’s a mecca for coffee wisdom, coffee knowledge, coffee information. Everything coffee in the world in that week was happening in Bogota, and I wanted to be a part of it.” And so he made his way there with friend Rob Kettner, Canadian barista champion and co-owner of Victoria’s Fernwood Coffee Company. “I went down there with the support team, carried stuff for him, things like that,” Evans said, dressed head-to-toe in a green that resembles the colour of raw coffee beans. A self-professed “coffee geek,” Evans said the trip to origin -- a term meaning a coffee producing nation -- is always an eyeopening experience. “The first time I went to origin was a couple years ago, and in a hard seven hour day, hard physical labour for seven hours, I was able to pick and pulp and process and hull and drain and sort and bag one kilogram of coffee. When I came back, I realize we spill a pound of coffee not because we mean to, not because we’re bad people it’s because we’re busy and things happen,” he said. “Coffee deserves more respect that we give it in the first world.” To give it that respect, Evans, who in a previous life was a landscaper for 10 years, purchased his own coffee bean roaster about a year and a half ago.

Barista Rebecca Swinburnson, left, and owner David Evans enjoy a cup of expresso behind The Stick’s bar. “I want closer ties with my coffee -- I want to know where it comes from, how it’s roasted, and the care that’s put into it,” he said. “If I could make every single cup of coffee at the counter, I would.” Despite only being in the the business since 2007, Evans’ passion for coffee is evident the moment he starts talking about it. Surprisingly, he only started drinking the dark beverage about seven years ago when a friend in Cobble Hill offered to brew him a cup. “He had this wonderful brass and copper expresso machine that he had inherited, and he made me my first good cup of coffee. And I was 37.” One cup was all it took. Soon after, Evans travelled south to Oregon to get his barista certification. Traditionally a tea enthusiast, he said coffee provides an unmatched complexity. “It’s like red wine versus white wine -- white wine is great, but red wine is wow! There’s just so much in there.” Evans said he is learning about coffee every day, and he passes on the knowledge to his customers through the drinks

he makes: everything from a $2.50 cup of standard expresso, to $15 for hard-to-get gourmet coffee like the Panama Esmeralda that he brings in from time to time. “The people have come to expect a level of quality,” said Evans. “If we serve a bad cup they call us. They say this isn’t as good as normal, what’s up?” He broke down his client base, which he said continues to grow every year, as 75 per cent people who know and like good coffee, 15 per cent coffee aficionados, and the rest who just use it as fuel to get through the day. His efforts haven’t gone unnoticed -- The Stick has been featured in numerous online and magazine reviews and recognized as one of the top expresso bars on the Island, which is “pretty awesome for a town like Sooke,” said Evans. The Stick is celebrating its four year anniversary on Saturday July 9. There will be a DJ, live music, and a charity barbecue with proceeds going towards coffee industry charities.

Sooke woman found dead in Goldstream park

!"#$%&'()*+,-"#./, 0)(12()*3&)2(. ")4*,5%6

Continued from Page A1 Her body was found about 100 metres from the campsite, down a nearby trail that leads to the shallow, rocky river. Two outhouses are near the trailhead and portions of the trail are steep and dry. Police tape is blocking access to that area of the river, but police said she was found near a rope swing. The cause of death is unknown, but an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday. Police are treating the death as suspicious and investigators are interviewing people she was camping with and other people at nearby campsites. “The cause of death is unknown and we are investigating it seriously,” Staff Sgt. Danny Willis said on Sunday. “We don’t know if foul play was involved.” It’s unclear how many people Langford was camping with.

Langford’s Facebook page shows three photos uploaded Friday evening at 11:43 p.m., all featuring two young men identified as being “French” and sitting in front of a tent. Her campsite remained sealed behind police tape on Monday, with a dome tent with clothing strewn about inside, two camping chairs and a few personal effects, including three pairs of glasses on the picnic table.

Cpl. Kathy Rochlitz said investigators are interviewing Langford’s friends and other people at the campsite to reconstruct Langford’s actions and movements over the last few days, but no one is in custody and no one has been deemed a person of interest in her death. “Anytime we have a death with no specific cause it is suspicious

until proven otherwise,” Rochlitz noted. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-800222-TIPS. “Anyone who was at the Goldstream Provincial Park campground on Friday July 1, 2011 or Saturday morning July 2, 2011, who heard or saw anything unusual are asked to call West Shore RCMP at 250-474-

Robertson receives stewardship award Local forest owner Ken Robertson received a private forest stewardship award from the Private Forest Landowners Association (PFLA) last week. Eighty-three-year-old Robertson, a Korean

War Veteran, has been carefully tending the family’s private forest land on Sooke Road and Humpback Road for almost three decades. He received the award for his commit-

ment to responsible forest stewardship, hard work, dedication and for the example he has provided to others. PFLA members enjoyed a visit to Ken’s forest last week, where they learned about

and discussed a broad range of topics including reforestation, protecting trees from deer, timber marketing and best management practices to protect water and fish habitat. We all thanked Ken

Robertson for his efforts and our very enjoyable visit and we encouraged him to keep up the good work. The award was a framed certificate and a drum of diesel for Ken’s excavator.

Hot rod summer

Brendan Herlihy

Unique cars, such as this 1932 Ford, are often seen along Sooke Road during the nice weather. The drivers enjoy the road with its windy curves and scenery. The ’32, known as the Deuce, is often considered the prototype of the classic hot rod because of its distinctive grill.

Canada Day gets competitive at Sooke River Flats Benjamin Yong photo

Things heated up on the water at Sooke River on Friday during the raft building and race. The bank was filled with hundreds of spectators who showed up to watch the event put on by the Rotary Club of Sooke at the 16th year of Canada Day celebrations at the Flats. The rafts launched from shore and had to navigate around buoys and dodge powerful streams of water shooting from a fire hose on land.

The crowd watched in awe while members of the Sooke Loggers’ Sports Club fearlessly hacked at logs beneath their feet with razor-sharp axes during the Logger’s sports demo put on by Sooke Home Hardware.
