Not the quiet spot he hoped for A young elephant seal in moult chose the wrong beach to haul out on, but local marine mammal ecologist Wendy Szaniszlo is hoping passersby will respect his privacy and keep their pets leashed and away. Moult is natural for seals, but stressful, Szaniszlo said. SUBMITTED PHOTO

By JACKIE CARMICHAEL The Westerly News A young bull seal pup has chosen a Ucluelet beach for his moult and he’s attracting attention when it’s the last thing he needs. “People get quite concerned like the animal is sick or dying, but it’s natural – it just looks worrisome,” said West Coast marine mammal ecologist Wendy Szaniszlo. “Physiologically, it’s quite stressful for them … They lose their fur and it’s quite catatrophic as they sluff off part of their skin as well,” she said. The seal pup will probably be at

Big Beach for a month, and was above the tide line Monday. “They go for whatever beach seems suitable to them - they’re not thinking where humans are or not, and as they’re coming to beach they can’t assess whether there’s a parking lot near by,” she said. “I hope it doesn’t draw people – unfortunately for the seal, it chose the wrong beach to haul out on.” Szaniszlo urges people to keep their distance, and to keep dogs on leash and out of the area. “When they are done moulting, they will make their way back to

water,” she said. Male elephant seals end up with large, bulbous noses and can reach up to 2,000 kilograms in weight. “They are wild animals, they can have a vicious bite if they feel threatened and they carry a lot of diseases, so that’s a good reason to keep your distance and keep pets away as well,” Szaniszlo said. If you encounter wildlife you think may be stranded or injured, call the Department of Fisheries and Oceans stranded marine mammal line at 1-800-465-4336. A stranding network can help.

West Coast real estate: prices drop, sales soar By JACKIE CARMICHAEL The Westerly News With real estate sales prices down 30% since 2007 levels on the West Coast, buying opportunities are up, and buyers are starting to snap up local properties. Year-over-year sales of residential properties are up almost 10%, to 57 properties sold from 52. Re/Max broker Judy Gray said new buyers are coming in from Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, Calgary and Edmonton. Residential home sales jumped from 18 in a year to 25, from June 2011-June 2012 to June 2012-June 2013, Gray said. Of 25 family homes sold in the past year, six were waterfront – three on the harbour, three on the ocean. A starting price in Ucluelet for a three-bedroom, winterized, waterfront property on a standard-sized lot is $549,000. In Tofino, a similar property is $769,000. Oceanfront sales are picking up, with two oceanfront sales in May and June after a dry spell of several years. Gray said she wouldn’t speculate as to how May’s provincial election impacted the market per se, but she noted that 10 properties sold from May 12 to now in Ucluelet, and that’s a jump. “There’s no GST payable on

residential real estate unless it’s brand new – so the fact that we’re settled with the GST thing might have something to do with it. Likely it’s post-election confidence,” she said. Seven condos at Waters Edge Resort have sold over the past 12 months, up from four sold the prior year. It’s a popular investment for people who want overnight rentals to cover their expenses, she said. “People will rent them if there’s enough to cover their holding costs – insurance, maintenance, taxes, strata fees – and the rest of the time keep it available for themselves,” she said. Sales in residential condos are picking up, Gray said, noting that of four such sales in the past year, two were in the past month. “People are buying again for recreational use, but they’re buying at lower end of the market. Instead of a $400,000 recreational use place, they’re buying a $200,000 one. We’re not selling any higher-end vacation rentals,” she said. “There isn’t a middle of the market right now in vacation homes.” According to a Re/Max report, Comox Valley-Mount Washington area is still in a slump compared to pre-recession highs and raw land waterfront values there corrected by 50% since 2008-2009.

Accounting changed after former employee turns in $10K ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News The district’s financial monitoring will change after a former employer recently handed over $10,000 of change. Ucluelet has revamped the financial accounting requirements of its harbour manager position after Steve Bird handed in about $10,300 in cash on his way out. He had been collecting the money from the harbour’s laundry and shower facilities and storing

it in his safety deposit box, outside of his routine deposits to the district. Ucluelet CAO Andrew Yeates says the money was a routine part of Bird’s contract wrap-up. “We did a bunch of accounting to finish up that contract and that was just part of it,” he says. “There’s nothing here, this is a contract that’s ended and it got settled up.” Mayor Bill Irving said the situation was inconsistent with the way

the district handles contracts and monitoring efforts will be upped to ensure a similar event doesn’t occur in future. “We’re still going through tidying up the numbers,” Irving said. “It’s a strange anomaly and it’s certainly not the way we generally do business.” He said the long-time harbour manager brought in the money along with moorage-related paperwork after being asked by the district’s financial officer to make

sure everything was accounted for. “We were happy that he did step forward and bring the money into the district,” Irving said. “We didn’t find the numbers askew or anything like that because we had no idea that the money had not been part of the monthly deposit.” He said Bird’s contract included a 45% commission on business generated at the harbour, including the laundry and shower, so a full-press accounting process must occur to make sure Bird is

paid out fairly and the new harbour manager starts out with a clean slate. “The contract was very clear, you turn the money in you get 45 per cent of it and that’s your expectation,” Irving said. “(The district) doesn’t go down everyday, stand over his shoulder, and make sure he’s accounting for every penny correctly. What’s the point? We might as well do it ourselves then.” SEE PAGE 16

Mayor asks visiting Tory minister to make on-shore processing a priority By JACKIE CARMICHAEL

The Westerly News With Thursday’s visit from federal Conservative government officials looming, Ucluelet Mayor Bill Irving had two concerns topping his list: the closure of the Coast Guard station at Amphitrite Point and the importance of on-shore processing. Member of Parliament James Lunney and Government House Leader Peter Van Loan were expected in Tofino on Thursday to

tout the $5 million airport expansion. Lunney was expected at the Tofino Chamber Luncheon and to meet with the Tofino and Ucluelet councils. “There’s a huge investment Pacific Seafoods has put into the community,” Irving said. The Portland, Ore.-based company has made Ucluelet its Canadian processing hub, buying two plants and leasing a third. Upgrades and new equipment have meant millions invested by

the company – and hundreds of area jobs, Irving said. Follow-through is required at the federal level, Irving said. “Don’t trade it to off-shore processors and leave on-shore plants in the lurch … Hopefully, the minister will get the impression there are foreigners investing in Canada, but they need federal help to make sure it’s a priority,” Irving said. “I’d like the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans to meet with people

Closing Amphitrite Point not worth the national risk With changes afoot at the federal level with the current Minister of Fisheries and Oceans stepping down from cabinet, the next appointee needs to come to the West Coast, meet leaders, see issues – and take the picture back to Ottawa. That minister will be in charge of the Coast Guard, who in 2012 cited “efficiencies” when they announced a three-year plan to close a vital monitoring piece in monitoring shipping along the B.C. coast and beyond, and consolidate operations in Sidney. Closing Coast Guard operations at Amphitrite Point on the West Coast means opening the door to risk. Eliminating a second station – and backup – is not efficient.

Jackie Carmichael Editor

It’s risky – and it’s silo thinking. Odd, considering Prime Minister Stephen Harper has stressed the importance of carrying Canadian products to Asian markets, and the importance of environmental vigilance. The Coast Guard station at Amphitrite Point, with its vessel traffic management, marine radio station and the technical support hub, is crucial to quick response and that environmental vigilance over vessel and tanker traffic in

ever more crowded shipping lanes. Amphitrite Point monitors and screens 14,000 vessel movements a year bound for Canadian ports of call – Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo – and American ports in Puget Sound and Rosario Straits, including Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia. Each of the 15,000 vessels that ply the West Coast each year carry 500,0000 litres of fuel oil, minimum. Not to mention some 300 tankers carrying millions of barrels of oil apiece. On average, the site handled 367 incidents per year from 2007 to 2011. Accidents have been kept to almost zero because of efficient and safely redundant traffic management, so we know Amphitrite

Point’s working. For all that safety and monitoring, the Ucluelet facility sits on land that leases for $1 a year. That’s efficiency at a bargain. There’s also room to add climate change monitoring, another federal commitment. Meanwhile, Victoria’s Coast Guard facility sits on one of the most valuable properties in Victoria, where the city seeks critical expansion for its cruise ship receiving capacity and residential expansion. Three kilometres away, the Department of Defence could accommodate the Coast Guard. The federal government is investing billions on the Asia-Pacific gateway: the Port Mann Bridge, pipelines, lanes for container

ships and tankers. This is not a West Coast issue, or an Island issue. This is a B.C. issue – and a Canadian issue. Retaining investment in monitoring at the West Coast gateway to the corridor makes efficient, economic sense for Canada. With pledges to the environment, to increased Asia trade, to efficiency and to support rural Canada, the federal Conservative government has a place here to show it means business. Mayor Bill Irving and Ucluelet leaders will meet with B.C. Conservative caucus senior staff July 25, and hope to make the agenda of the B.C. Conservative caucus in September. Let’s hope they listen.


Court upholds First Nations concerns On July 2, the B.C. Court of Appeal upheld their original decision in the Ahousaht et al vs. Canada court case. That means Canada’s latest attempt to overturn the trial decision has failed … Last fall, the Supreme Court of Canada rejected Canada’s request to appeal that earlier decision, sending the case back to the B.C. Court of Appeal for reconsideration in light of the Lax Kw’alaams vs. Canada SCC decision. On reconsideration, the three-judge panel unanimously reconfirmed that five Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations (Ahousaht, Ehattesaht/Chinehkint, Hesquishy, Mowachaht-Muchalaht and Tla-o-qui-aht) have Aboriginal rights to harvest and sell all species of fish.

During the reconsideration, the Court of Appeal was tasked to review the Ahousaht et al vs. Canada case based on the Lax Kw’alaams vs. Canada decision, where the trial judge found that apart from eulachon grease, the Lax Kw’alaams people did not trade in fish on an economic scale. In Ahousaht et al vs. Canada, the trial judge found that economic trade in fish was a defining feature of Nuu-chah-nulth culture. This trade happened regularly, in substantial quantities and was integral to Nuu-chah-nulth cultural practices ... Once again, the courts have recognized that Nuuchah-nulth Nations have an aboriginal right to fish and sell the fish harvested from their territories on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.

Police: tough laws take drunk driving down By JACKIE CARMICHAEL

The Westerly News Newly-tough provincial drinking and driving laws – among Canada’s strictest – are saving lives and cutting down on driving after drinking in Ucluelet. That’s according to Const. Jonathan McKinney. “The amount of drinking and driving we’re finding on the road is significantly less,” McKinney said. “We have to check way more vehicles before we find an impaired driver and that’s because of stringent and immediate pen-

alties through the Motor Vehicle Branch of ICBC and the office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles.” Last year, Ucluelet RCMP conducted 14 impaired driver investigations; so far this year, those numbers are down, McKinney said, “because people are seeing the penalties are so immediate and severe.” Instead, drinkers are finding rides home, grabbing a taxi or a designated driver. “People being smarter about their transportation decisions

after having consumed liquor,” McKinney said. Provincewide, the laws have saved an estimated 143 lives - cutting the drinking and driving death toll by 51%, said a note from the Ministry of Justice. The figures, which cover the first 30 months of B.C.’s Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) program, are the lowest ever recorded. Fatalities due to drinking and driving have dropped to an average of 56 per year, compared to 114 a year average before the IRP program came into effect

in September 2010. In the first four months of 2013, police throughout B.C. served 5,638 IRPs, including 3,860 to drivers who blew in the “fail” range

Ukee RCMP long weekend busy Drunken B&E on Coral Way There was a break and enter on 1100 block of Coral Way in Ucluelet on June 27 in the early morning hours. “A suspect (in his early 20s) was arrested on scene, he was charged with break and enter and uttering threats. He was released and is awaiting a future court date,” said Const. Jonathan McKinney. “He was intoxicated to the point where he was looking for a friend of his, and he thought his friend lived there,” McKinney said.

Merc impounded for 160kph spree A newer Mercedes was impounded for seven days for traveling in excess of 160 kph on the highway near the Ucluelet Cemetery. Just before 5 p.m on Saturday, he was clocked on radar at 160 kph. The driver, a male in his early 20s, was issued a speeding ticket for over $400 and their vehicle was impounded for seven days; there’s an automatic impound for more than 41 kph over the posted speed limit.

Hangover nets man suspension Just because someone drank last night doesn’t mean they’re not still intoxicated today. That may be the lesson from Ucluelet Const. Jonathan McKinney, who suspend-

ed a a man in his 20s Tuesday morning after the hung-over driver blew .053 on the roadside approved screening device. “He hadn’t had anything to drink today, but he had drunk a lot last night to the point where he shouldn’t have been driving. He had 12 drinks the night before,” McKinney said, estimating that it takes, on average, an hour per drink per to sober up for an average size person. “A hangover is what it is, but generally a hangover is still at a level of intoxication. It’s not that they’re sick because they drank too much, it’s that they’re still drunk and they shouldn’t be driving,” McKinney said.

Vonda Tugwell to be laid to rest July 8 Bud & Vonda Tugwell in 1946.


By JACKIE CARMICHAEL The Westerly News A Ucluelet icon is returning home to rest. Vonda Tugwell died May 23 in Creston. She will be buried in a graveside ceremony at Ucluelet Cemetery July 8 at 1 p.m., with a reception to follow at Forest Glen, where she was a resident before moving to Creston to be close to siblings. Her husband, Thomas Frederick “Bud� Tugwell, for whom Tugwell Fields are named, died in 2006 – just two weeks short of the couple’s 60th anniversary. The Tugwell family was in rooted in Ucluelet in 1910. Vonda Tugwell came later, hailing from a farming family in Saskatchewan. Many remember her from her work at the Ucluelet Coop for many years, but she started her career in the fishing industry.

“She came out to the West Coast in 1942, she cooked for the girls’ bunkhouse at the fishcamp at Port Albion,� said daughter Loraine Pilon. Bud Tugwell was among the first to go ashore at Normandy on D Day in World War II. As a member of the Royal Canadian Engineers since 1941, his job was to clear the beaches in preparation for the Allies’ tanks. When he returned home after the war, Bud became a logger. He met that pretty bunkhouse cook, and they wed. Bud was very involved in the community, serving a couple stints on the district council, remaining active in the athletic club and what would become the Tofino Legion. “They stayed together for 60 years. They used to do a lot together. They bowled, they golfed, they walked the beaches and they gardened,� Pilon said. “They got on well.�

Legion: cautious in wake of sting The Westerly News Government interpretation and enforcement of liquor laws has Legions around the province concerned, according to HCL Cam MacDonald, secretary of the Clayoquot Sound branch, after Inga Kruse, Executive Director issued a warning to B.C. and Yukon branches. Branches can only serve alcohol to members and their bona fide guests. “Recently two liquor inspectors came to a branch, and pretended to be just visiting. The branch signed them in with members on site, the two were allowed to order a drink, and were served,� Kruse said. “The branch would have viewed them as potential new members and probably would have approached them in welcome during their visit. The branch received a 24-hour suspension on the spot. No warning was issued. “This suspension was handed to them based on the very strict interpretation of the license,� Kruse

said, adding the Legion has been assured more warnings will be issued. MacDonald said in spite of the Royal Canadian Legion’s best efforts to work with the Liquor Control and Licensing Board to simplify regulations, they face such tactics regularly. “If our staff seems picky or unreasonable at times, it is because we are attempting, to the best of our ability, to interpret and implement the LCLB regulations and thus to avoid suspensions and heavy financial penalties. We also find a wide variation in the interpretations by various liquor inspectors which further complicate the situation - for what one tells us is proper, another might impose an immediate suspension. It is a difficult situation and we’re doing our best to work within it to provide reliable, safe, and pleasant service to our members,� he said.

ToďŹ no pioneer church turns 100 By JACKIE CARMICHAEL

The Westerly News A constant in Tofino over the past century., little St. Columba Church – is marking its 100th year of service this coming weekend. The church was a fixture by 1914, when there were ust trails and the 1st Street dock and a steam ship that brought supplies into the isolated fishing outpost and a handful of homesteads. “In Europe and the British Isles, 100 years is not old – but on the West Coast it is,� said church secretary Dorothy Arnet, whose husband’s family helped found the church, as did area pioneer and beach namesake John Chesterman, whose $12 initial gift helped buy the lots for $100. St. Columba has seen 30 ministers, five organs, a merger between Anglican and United communities. It cheered its congregation through World War I, the Great Depression and World War II. Like many churches, St. Columba has had ebb and flow. There’s a small but devoted

congregation now; lay leaders conduct most services, but the congregation’s hoping a brand new rectory will help draw a minister to lead them. “People of Tofino love the church, whether they come to the church or not. If we’re painting, people come and say, ‘What are you doing to our church??’� she said with a smile. There’s another congregation – an international one. Tourists come as they are, and they’re welcomed at the little church. “Throughout the tourist season, we get people from around the world who come to church – and they leave their surfboards outside,� Arnet said. This weekend’s 100th anni-

versary celebrations at St. Columba include an open house Friday from noon to 4 p.m., guided historical walk around Tofino at 10 a.m. Saturday; a presentation

The Westerly News Someone with a pellet gun downed a big bird visiting Tofino last week. A Greater White-fronted Goose was taken to wildlife veterinarian Dr. Malcolm McAdie. “It had been captured on the beach unable to fly and it sounds like people had seen it in the area for over a week. It was unable to use its right leg therefore it was x-rayed. The x-ray showed again another bird shot with a pellet gun,” said Sylvia Campbell. A long-lived bird, the Greater White-fronted Goose maintains permanent pair bonds and provides extended biparental care to its young, often into the next breeding season and beyond. A highly mobile bird and one of the first fall migrants, the Greater White-fronted Goose undertakes long seasonal migrations from Alaska to Oregon and from arctic Canada across the boreal forest to the northern Great Plains. In North America, the Greater White-fronted Goose has seen declines resulting from overexploitation and loss of habitat. Shooting is one of the top things that sends wildlife to hospital, Campbell said. “Just recently we compiled documentation of the animals and birds that have been admitted to the centre since June of last year. It stuck us that many of the birds brought into our care that been shot by either a rifle or pellet gun,” Campbell said. For information about the NIWRA and their raptor programs, visit

According to Irving, the district has already implemented a new financial accounting process and the new harbour manager Kevin Cortes is keeping regular records. “One reason he scored well on the interviews is that he’s familiar with accounting processes,” Irving said of Cortes. “I can see where people have questions. We’re certainly trying to respect the former manager but also make sure we’re consistently closing off everything properly and it’s fully accounted for and we don’t, sort of, slip into gray areas anymore.” Irving said he doesn’t believe Bird ever intended to keep the money, because it had been set aside and Bird’s commission based salary entitled him to 45% of it. “By sitting on it he didn’t get his cut so i don’t see the advantage to him,” the mayor said, adding the district hasn’t received an explanation from Bird on why the money had not been part of the routine deposits. “When we asked we did not get an answer that was fully satisfying,” Irving said. “He hasn’t explained it to me or staff in a way that makes sense to our long term relationship.”

Bird told the Westerly News he never received an explanation from the district on what he was supposed to do with it. The district placed an advertisement in the April 7, 2011 Westerly News looking for someone to operate the harbour’s newly installed showers and laundry facilities. The ad said the deadline for applications was April 29, 2011. Bird said no one was hired to the position and its duties gradually fell under his harbour manager umbrella - despite never officially being assigned to him by the district. “I got no direction whatsoever,” he says, “They never said for me to even do it.” The coin-operated machines filled up and stopped working when they were full so he began collecting the change, Bird said, adding that with no direction from the district on what to do with it, he stored it in a safety deposit box. “I informed them that I had it and got no response,” Bird said. “It’s painful because you don’t like to hang onto it because something could happen but they gave me no direction...So I just kept collecting it.”

Mock climate war pits ToďŹ no vs Buxton, UK By JACKIE CARMICHAEL

The Westerly News Newly honoured in a recent BBC report as one of the most attractive towns in the British Isles, Buxton, England has a new challenge: a climate war with Tofino, B.C., a site that connects people around the world with information about communities, is host to a post war started by Vancouver poster deneb78, who started the fireworks with â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought this would be an interesting battle...Curious to see what people choose. I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give the slight edge to Tofino in spite of the fact its wetter.â&#x20AC;? Tofino Mayor Josie Osborne said her parents are British, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perhaps genetically predisposed to liking British weather. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, Tofino has the better climate,â&#x20AC;? Osborne said, noting that if Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cloudier in the summer as a poster said, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Tofinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can always get through winter, but you want to have a nice summer, right?â&#x20AC;? Osborne noted one poster had posted a sunset picture of Tofinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beauty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beat this, right? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful up there (in Buxton), but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on the ocean, is it?â&#x20AC;? The mayor said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping the faux climate-war could attract some visitors to the West Coast. A Buxton company bottles the local waters for sale; Osborne said perhaps someone will bring some over for a blind taste-test comparison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would definitely challenge them for Tofino water vs. Buxton water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we can hold our own,â&#x20AC;? she said. Both towns have their charms. Buxton was ranked in a June BBC report as one of the most attractive towns in the British

Isles; Tofino was ranked by Outside magazine as the top surf destination in North America. In the cultural mix: The Gilbert & Sullivan Festival vs. the Whale Festival. Buxton Cricket Club vs. Cox Beach. Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spa dates to Roman times to use geothermal water from St. Anneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Well; the imprisoned Mary Queen of Scots was brought to â&#x20AC;&#x153;take the waters.â&#x20AC;? Tofino has Hot Springs Cove in Maquinna Provincial Marine Park. Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Derbyshire surrounds are referenced in the works of Jane Austen. Tofino was the backdrop for movies like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Alaska,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fogâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Big Year.â&#x20AC;? The two towns are far from twins. Buxton is 1,000 feet above sea level; Tofino is surrounded by mountains but sits at just 30 feet above sea level. Buxton gets 51 inches of rain a year; Tofino averages over twice that. Tofinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest average monthly temperature is 7.6 degrees in January; Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lowest average monthly temp sinks to just under zero degrees. Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population in 2001 was almost 21,000; Tofinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population is less than a tenth that. Buxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural cavern has unique poached-egg shaped stalagmites; some people in Tofino have been known to eat poached eggs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buxton is Z- So A star for Tofino. Woop woop!!!!!!!â&#x20AC;? said owenc of Northern Ireland.

ToďŹ no/Ahousaht RCMP report On July 2 at 6:30 a.m. RCMP responded to a report of a unresponsive male lying near the First Street dock. It appeared the male had been assaulted. Police found the male near some bushes. The male was unresponsive but breathing, ambulance was called immediately. The male had a gash above one eye and appeared to have been in a fight. The male was transported to the hospital by ambulance. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember very much to assist police in finding out what happened to him. He was released from hospital. RCMP will investigate further.

Quad driver injured after running stop On July 1 at 10:49 a.m. RCMP were called to a collision at Hellesen Road and Abraham Drive where one driver was injured. Police arrived to find a vehicle and a quad had been in a collision. The driver of the quad was bleeding profusely from the nose. Police rendered first aid to the driver. There was damage to the vehicle that did not render the vehicle inoperable. The investigation revealed the quad driver was on his way to a party down the street, ran the stop sign and drove almost into the middle of the vehicle. The quad operator kept repeating profusely how stupid he was. Another police officer came to the scene. As ambulance was still enroute, the officer drove the quad driver to the hospital in the police car. The quad driver will receive violation tickets for running a stop sign and operating an uninsured vehicle on a highway.

But Buxtonian poster Weatherfan7 said it was a tough decision because Tofino is â&#x20AC;&#x153;so damn wetâ&#x20AC;? but has fewer thunderstorms.

Congratulations to winners so far in the Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby. June’s winners included 1st place, Steve Ondre from Courtenay, with a cash and prize value of $2,500 for his 36 lb 09 oz fish. “Steve has an annual derby ticket and he stayed at the Bayshore Waterfront Inn where he got his ticket and was out fishing with his buddy,” said the Derby’s Lisa Brisco. Ondre’s fish was caught with a needle fish hoochie at South Bank June 15. In 2nd place with $500, Sheila Archer from Victoria stayed at Black Rock and was out fishing with Big Bear Salmon Charters. Her fish weighed 28 lb 04 oz. “Sheila had a one-day ticket. She too caught her winner with a hoochie at South Bank, on June 2,” Brisco said. In 3rd place, Bruce Moores from Sicamous is a regular on the docks and has played the derby since day one. He was fishing at Sail Rock at about 90 ft with a Trurol lure on June 10. “He too was fishing with friends George Smith and wife, Princealine along with their good luck charms. Summer residents at the West Coast Motel, Bruce & Princealine are well known on the docks and

we are thrilled to see them in the winners circle,” said Brisco. Bruce wins $100. The derby found unexpected generosity in a May winner. First place winner Colin Shore of Black Diamond, Alberta donated his $500 winnings to the hatchery. He and 3rd place winner Robert Higgins were both fishing with Big Bear Salmon Charters. The Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby is a four month long salmon fishing derby run by the Ucluelet Salmon Enhancement Society to raise funds and awareness for local salmon enhancement projects on the West Coast. Through sponsorships, donations and ticket sales, the derby is able to reward over $10,000 in monthly cash and prizes for the biggest fish on the ladder. Qualifying anglers for the two day September Fish Off then compete for a cash and prize award, valued up to $10,000; as well participants vie for a $250,000 Hidden Weight Grand Prize “In three seasons the Ucluelet Salmon Enhancement Society has presented the Thornton Creek Hatchery, near Ucluelet, with $12,000. This year, another $500 has been donated to both the Pacific Salmon Foundation and Central Westcoast Forest Society to help promote a healthy stock of salmon in our waterways,” Brisco said.

SD70 rep’s resignation carries $15,000 price tag ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News Barbie Mayor’s recent resignation from her post as West Coast representative on the school board has a $15,000 bill headed towards the table of an alreadycashstrapped school district. She reportedly made an attempt to reverse her decision when she was informed of its financial impact but her letter of resigna-

tion was already in the hands of the school board and apparently the point of no return had been passed. A by-election will be held on September 14 to fill her seat. “If it happens that there is an election then it could cost us up to $15,000,” said School District 70 (SD70) secretary treasurer Lindsay Cheetham, adding the cost will be significantly less if only one candidate is nominated.

He said the cost of having the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District run the election is worth the amount of staff time it would save. He’s banking on the regional district’s expertise will help ensure no do-overs are necessary. “If you make any small slip and somebody calls you on it then you have to turn around and do the whole thing again,” he said. “It’s not something that’s done very often and nobody here at the dis-

trict has ever done it because the ACRD has always run it.” Mayor had served as the West Coast’s representative SD70’s board of trustees since winning the seat by acclamation in 2011. Trustees are elected to three-year terms and Mayor’s successor will serve a term ending in November, 2014. The nomination period will run from July 30-Aug. 9. Nomination forms and additional information

can be found on SD70’s website. Candidates must be West Coast residents who are at least 18. Trustees receive $10,380 a year. Mayor did not return calls by press time but in an email to the Westerly News on May 28, she cited an increase in other commitments as her reason for stepping down.

Tofino hatchery honoured for 3 decades of spawning success ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News About 30 years ago a group of Tofino locals hatched a plan to revive Tofino’s salmon population and what started as a small operation in a trailer on Bay Street has spawned into a multi-systemed fish-hatching success story. The Tofino Salmon Enhancement Society was recently presented with a plaque from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) in recognition of 25 years of service. “We’ve been continuously in operation for all this time and we haven’t ever missed a season,” said secretarytreasurer Whitey Bernard. “We’ve been told by the fisheries biologist from DFO that if it wasn’t for the Tofino Salmon Enhancement Society, it’s quite likely that Chinook salmon would be extinct in Cypre River

and Tranquil River.” Four different systems now hatch over 500,000 salmon each year, with a 98% survival rate from egg to fry. Volunteers access remote streams by boat and then truck through deteriorating logging roads to collect the eggs. “Out here, when you go out to catch your fish to get the eggs, you’re going out when the fish are ripe and that also means the rivers might be in flood and there are always bears,” Bernard said. Along with egg-collecting, the hatchery’s operations must be meticulously organized and kept clean. “Raising fish is like raising any kind of critters; their environment has to be very good,” he said. The society’s only paid employee Doug Palfrey, general manager of operations, also works with Ucluelet’s Thornton Creek Hatchery.

“With the Thornton Creek guys and our guys working together we’re able to get the amount of eggs that we need,” Bernard said. Eggs hatch into fry, which are raised at the hatchery until they reach 5 grams. They are then returned to the same river they were collected from. Some salmon, particularly Chinook, are held back and put in net-pens at the mouth of the river for several weeks until they are

about 7-8 grams. The society’s operating cost of $35,000 a year is largely paid through community support and dona-

tions with DFO kicking in $7,000. The annual Tofino Saltwater Classic Fishing Derby boosts the society’s bank account.

The district of Tofino is a significant contributor by leasing the land for $1 per year and providing a vital guaranteed water supply during the hatchery’s October to May season. “We appreciate all the support we’re getting and we appreciate the recognition that we’ve got and we’re going to keep doing what we do,” Bernard said. Donations can be sent to P.O. Box 476 or brought into the hatchery at 700 Sharp Road.
