Westerly News Photos of a pile of construction debris viewed Sunday at the site of the future Lost Shoe Creek Commercial Centre drew concern from West Coast residents. The pile photographed Sunday included what appeared to be debris from the burned-out and rebuilt Thornton Motel in Ucluelet. Both the Lost Shoe property and the motel are owned by the Ucluelet First Nation. Photos posted on Facebook of a controlled burn at the site Monday prompted more questions.

Team disentangles endangered sea lion mama JACKIE CARMICHAEL

Westerly News West Coast marine mammal biologist Wendy Szaniszlo helped disentangle the first Steller sea lion ever to get disentangled by Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Centre this weekend. The female Steller sea lion was found in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve off the West Coast of Vancouver Island, still nursing her pup, and suffering from a deep wound from the plastic packing strap bound tightly around her neck. Head veterinarian Dr. Martin Haulena was able to dart her with anesthetic while she rested on her haul-out, and performed a “textbook disentanglement,” which

included not only removing the packing strap, but cleaning the wound, administering antibiotics, taking a blood sample for further study, collecting the debris she was tangled in, and tagging her. “Stellers are a species at risk (listed as Special Concern under

federal SARA). Higher conservation priority than non-listed species,” Szaniszlo said. “Also, Steller sea lions are larger and generally found in more isolated haulouts where conditions make rescues very challenging - for both people and animals. The animal we rescued was a mom nursing a pup. Her rescue likely affected not only her but her pup as well. Pups nurse for 1-3 years and are not adopted by other females if a mother dies,” she said. Previous rescues carried out have all involved California sea lions. “Best of all, she’s going to be in much better condition to care for her pup now.”

COMMENT

Come celebrate Salmon to Sea Central Westcoast Forest Society (CWFS) is pleased to announce our 4th annual Salmon to Sea Fundraiser taking place on Friday June 27th 2014 at Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet. The Salmon to Sea Fundraiser is a celebration of the efforts made by CWFS in regard to salmon habitat restoration. Spring AMELIA VOS is a /LOCAL VOICE very important time in the life cycle of salmon; eggs have hatched in the natal streams and the tiny salmon have developed from alevin into fry and are now going through an important transformation into smolts as they prepare for their big journey from freshwater streams and lakes into the ocean! CWFS is monitoring this out migration of salmon from Lost Shoe Creek to Florencia Bay. CWFS Biologist Dani Francis is checking the smolt traps daily

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

COMMENT

Not forgotten

from May- June 15th. Dani and her amazing team of local volunteer’s record important information on the species, size, weight, health and development of the smolts as they make their journey downstream. This research will provide integral information in regard to salmon populations here on the West coast, facilitating a greater understanding of the salmon survival and health, and habitat quality. This year all proceeds from our fundraiser will go directly towards funding CWFS 2015 Smolt Trap Project! The Salmon to Sea Fundraiser is an evening of delicious food, drinks, silent auction, bluegrass music courtesy of The Poor Pistols and The Lonely Heartstring Band, dancing, and socializing, and we invite all who are interested to come and attend! Tickets are available on June 9th at Black Rock Resort, CWFS office in Ucluelet, and at Surf Sister in Tofino. If you wish to donate or for more information please go to clayoquot.org

Today June 10 is the Regimental Funeral for the fallen RCMP officers,, Constable Dave Ross, Constable Fabrice Gevaudan and Constable Douglas Larche of Moncton. We are saddened by the events that took place, taking these officers lives. We are sending our condolences out to the families of the fallen officers. Chapel of Memories have donated a mémoire being held by Mackenzee Moore, daughter of Constable Mike Moore of Tofino, who asked her father if she could wear her Red Serge today in honour of the fallen officers. A condolences book was also donated and will be at the detachment on Wednesday for one week, for anyone wishing to send a message of condolence to the families. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Thanks to a local business that has been there through thick and thin The Co-op has supported students and teachers of Tofino for many years - from bake sales to car washes, they have always provided a venue for our fundraisers. The funds from these events have allowed us to KLERI enrich VENEZELOS the /LOCAL VOICE lives of children both locally and globally. Thanks to the Co-op’s helping hands, children of Tofino have been able to get out and experience nature, and have participated in a wide variety of field trips. With its community spirit, the Co-op is assisting by opening doors to a future of actively engaged youth. By allowing students to do fundraisers, the Co-op plays a pivotal

role in the lives of Tofino children. Not only has the Co-op helped children locally, it has also indirectly benefitted children all over the globe. Wickaninnish has now become a “We School”, which means we fundraise for the Me-toWe and Free the Children organizations. Our latest focus has been helping to rebuild a school in the Philippines after the recent hurricane. Without the Co-op, none of this could have happened. The Co-op has been there for us whenever we need a venue for our fundraising. The enriched experiences made possible through our local fundraising efforts would not have been available to us, nor would the children we fundraise for globally have benefitted, without the generous support provided. Thank you, Tofino Co-op, from the bottom of our hearts!

Above, Hjalmar Kristiansen crosses the line first - again. Left, a runner from Sweden. Bottom middle, the top water station team. Complete rankings at www.edgetoedgemarathon.ca

From Page 1: Marathon a Ukee show this year; Vancouver runner keeps crown, praises new course rush all the time and here it’s nice just to relax.” It was the fifth time Kristiansen has raced the Edge-to-Edge and he has improved every year since a time of 3:32:01 earned him 13th place in 2010. “This is the first marathon I ever ran so it’s a yearly thing, I always come back and do it again and it’s nice to see how it changes,” he said. He saw a huge change in this year’s course as Tofino and the Pacific Rim Highway were nixed from the run and he said the new course was tougher with more hills to power through but he enjoyed the new sightlines. “There was a lot more going on, the scenery was changing all the time, it wasn’t just running a straight line on the road,” he said. “It’s definitely slower because of all the gravel and the turning around but it’s nice, I like it, it’s a good track for sure.” Race director Sue Payne said the new Ucluelet-based course received high marks from runners. “We’ve had lots and lots and lots of positive feedback and for the most part everybody loved the course,” she said.

“It’s a challenging course but at least it’s a very challenging and safe course because there were no real traffic issues, not like the last few years where it’s been so congested on the highway.” She said she was thrilled to see Ucluetians come together to make the event a success. “It went amazingly smooth. Everybody pulled together, the volunteers were amazing, the community was amazing, we’ve had so many comments from runners and supporters that the community was so upbeat, so happy and so positive and cheered everybody on and they really, really appreciated that,” she said. Payne said that while it’s nice to see a local come first like Tofino’s Jim Gardner did in 2012, the race’s popularity draws formidable competition. “We love it when a local wins but this has become such a destination race people are coming from all over the place because they can spend the weekend here and it’s such a gorgeous place to hang out,” she said. Wayne Crow of Comox won the Edge-to-Edge half marathon with a time of 1:29:30 followed by

Andrea Lee of Black Creek who finished in 1:34:11 and Julian Mackenzie-Feder who finished in 1:34:35. It was Mackenzie-Feder’s first Edge-to-Edge and his time earned him the top spot in his 20-29 age category. “It’s a super fun race, very difficult, very challenging, but it’s beautiful out here and it’s great; I’ll be back here next year,” he said. Coming in with a time of 1:35:23 was Julianne “Jules” Kucheran of Delta who was the second female half-marathoner to cross the finish line. It was Kucheran’s first Edge-

to-Edge experience and she was stoked on the course and the community. “It was awesome, the trail portion was beautiful,” she said. “The hills were very challenging but a lot of fun, a lot of great views and the people were awesome; all the cheering people (and) all the volunteers were so awesome.” Kucheran crossed the finish line with friend Erin Udal enthusiastically cheering her on. “I’m so proud of her,” said Udal of Gabriola Island, Kucheran’s longtime friend who carried a sign reading ‘heart u Jules.’ “I came to watch her because I

love this area of Vancouver Island and thought it would be a great way to support my friend and have a great weekend.” The pair turned the event into a West Coast vacation and planned to go surfing that evening. “I had never been to this area of Vancouver Island and so we made a trip out of it; we’re going to go surfing later hopefully my legs aren’t too sore,” Kucheran said. Ucluelet’s Danny Osborne was the first local to cross the halfmarathon’s finish line and earned first place in the under-19 category with a time of 1:48:29. He attributed his successful run to Ucluelet Secondary School running coach Shannon McWhinney. “We have a running club at school and I’m really thankful for Ms. McWhinney for doing that,” he said. “She really motivates a lot of us to come out once or twice a week for a run and that gives us the ability to do stuff like this.” For full marathon results check out www.edgetoedgemarathon. com. reporter@westerlynews.ca

How you can help scientists save ailing sea stars ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News If you have a camera, or a phone that doubles as one, you can help scientists get to the bottom of a disease currently crippling sea star populations across the West Coast. The mysterious sea star wasting disease is threatening devastation of epidemic proportions and locals are being called on to assist a citizen science project by taking photos of sea stars they encounter and handing the images over to the Ucluelet Aquarium. Citizen science projects provide opportunities for non-professionals to assist with scientific research and photos of sick sea stars can help researchers map out a strategy to take on the fastspreading and fatal disease. “There’s lots of groups of people that are involved and the research extends outside of the lab,” said aquarium curator Laura GriffithCochrane noting the disease is wreaking havoc across the entire West Coast of North America. “The

sea star wasting disease went all the way down the Pacific...It’s not just Vancouver Island it’s the whole North Pacific.” Scientists are trying to zero in on the root of the disease but have yet to reach any conclusions and are

hoping to draw on the assistance of concerned citizens. Griffith-Cochrane urges locals to be on the lookout for sick looking sea stars and to capture images of any they spot. Infected sea stars can be iden-

tified by white lesions, which spread rapidly throughout their body before decay sets in. “The Ucluelet Aquarium, because we’re on the water we have a pretty good picture of what’s going on in the harbour, we test

everything everyday...and we’re there everyday so we can take photos everyday,” Griffith-Cochrane said. “We might not necessarily be out on the Wild Pacific Trail or out on all of our other local beaches so anyone that’s there and sees these kinds of things and is able to take photographs and send us them, with date and time, they can help to take part.” The disease shot through Vancouver Island and the mainland last summer but largely bypassed Ucluelet and Tofino’s shores. This year, according to GriffithCochrane, local sea stars have not been so lucky as the rampant running disease is turning local shorelines into grim graveyards of wiped out sea stars. Oregon, like Ucluelet, avoided last summer’s sea star wasting disease outbreak but according to a recent Victoria Times Colonist article penned by Sandra McCulloch, the disease has purple ochre sea stars in Oregon facing possible extinction this summer.

Reports at the time said she had been feeding the seals at the fish cleaning station earlier in the day. Bringing sea lions in where boats are can be deadly, Beckmann said. “Propellers rarely mix well with marine mammals in close proximity,” he said. “Any time you start habituating wild animals to seek out people, it often causes prob-

lems for animals. They don’t go back to foraging for themselves on remote inlets if there’s a chance of a hand-out,” Beckmann said. Fines may be issued under the Marine Mammal Regulations.

LAW ENFORCEMENT

Missing couple found boating on Kennedy Lake ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News A communication breakdown caused a Ucluelet couple to be reported missing last week while they were safely boating on Kennedy Lake. The couple was reported missing by their 15 year-old son who had come home from school on June 4 and was puzzled by his parents’ absence. He returned from school to find them still missing on June 5 and notified police. When the call came in around 3 p.m. June 5 police immediately launched a full-scale search and the couple was found safely on board a boat about 6 hours later, according to Sgt. Jeff Swann. “In the evening a tip came in that the couple might be out on Kennedy Lake,” Swann said. “We found them safe and sound.” He hopes the event serves as a reminder to locals to let people know before leaving town. “If you’re going to be going somewhere, or if you’re leaving somewhere, let people know where you’re going,” he said.

bizarrely; just erratic behaviour not typical for the people that we generally see in town.”

Charges laid against David Bird in Port Alberni shooting

Locals called police in the early evening of May 31 after seeing the man at Big Beach and police had a suspect in custody within an hour.

Eight charges have been laid against 34-year-old Port Alberni man David Bird, who is the suspect in a shooting at a residence last Tuesday night on 10th Avenue, according to Crown counsel Todd Patola.

The suspect has been identified as Jason Gough who was carrying a concealed machete at the time of his arrest, according to Argyle. “No one was harmed but police ended up taking him into custody in front of the (Coastal Community) Credit Union on Peninsula Road,” she said. “He had a machete concealed on his person; not sure why anyone would need that walking down the street in Ucluelet.” Gough faces charges of possession of a weapon contrary to an existing prohibition order, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and carrying a concealed weapon. He will remain in police custody until a June 12 court date in Port Alberni. reporter@westerlynews.ca

The charges against Bird, who is suspected to have shot Gregory Rawlinson in the leg, are aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, using a firearm while committing an offence, possession of a firearm against a prohibition, possessing a firearm dangerous to the public peace, two counts of possessing a firearm without a licence, and one count of storing a firearm contrary to regulations. Patola could not say if Bird had any prior charges against him, however he did say there would have had to been a firearm prohibition order made against him. Bird was arrested without incident near Sproat

Lake at approximately 5 a.m. by the RCMP’s Island Emergency Response Team early Wednesday morning. Bird was remanded by RCMP and remains in custody. “When you’re arrested you’ve got 24 hours to be taken before a judge because we don’t hold people in Canada,” Patola said. However, Bird had his bail hearing adjourned for a week under his own consent Thursday, a hearing that will now take place July 12 in Port Alberni. Port Alberni RCMP took the emergency call Tuesday night at approximately 7 p.m. When they arrived at the scene, they found Rawlinson suffering

from a gunshot wound to his leg, according to RCMP Cpl. Jen Allen. They believe Bird had since fled the scene, and managed to escape for close to 10 hours before being arrested near Sproat Lake. Allen said Tuesday that Bird and Rawlinson were known to one another, as well as police, and that the incident was apparently not a random attack. Because of that, Allen said there was no threat to public safety. There has been no update regarding the condition of Rawlinson, who was said by police to be in serious condition in a Victoria hospital. SMcKenzie@avtimes.net

FIRE SAFETY

Controlled burn sparks controversy near Junction ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News A controlled burn on Ucluelet First Nation treaty land sparked confusion and online-outrage on Monday. The Nation had scheduled a controlled burn of its recently demolished Thornton Motel’s remains but the Ucluelet volunteer fire brigade responded to what they believed was an unsafe fire, according to the Nation’s Development Corporation CEO Trevor Jones. Jones said the Nation had informed the district of Ucluelet of the controlled burn on Monday morning expecting the district to make its fire department aware of what was going on “The district, it looks like, maybe hadn’t let everybody in the fire department know,” Jones said. “That information didn’t make it

down to everybody on call so when the call came in they assumed it was actually an out of control fire and they responded.” The Ucluelet fire brigade arrived at the site around 7:15 p.m., according to Jones who noted both the fire chief and deputy chief were off-site. “They unfortunately weren’t part of that call out so they weren’t able to communicate to the crew because I believe they were aware of what was going on,” he said. Jones said a passerby reported the fire but the fire dispatch centre did not understand the burn was occurring on Treaty land and contacted the wrong fire crew. “They incorrectly called out the Ucluelet fire department when in fact they probably should have called out the Ucluelet First Nation’s department,” he said adding the Nation’s fire department was never contacted.

Burn, continued from Page 1 request for information about Monday’s burn. “The (Ucluelet) Government was informed that a burn permit was issued from the Province of BC to deal with a logging debris pile from the clearing of Lost Shoe Creek Commercial Centre,” he stated. Photos of the large debris pile showed a mix of materials but the government was assured by Trevor Jones, YFN Management Services CEO, who was in charge of the burn, that only wood from those piles was used as fire starter and that the remainder of the debris would be land-filled, said a statement from communications coordinator Lisa McKnight-Yeates.

“The Ucluelet fire department responded outside their jurisdiction, they showed up at a gate and didn’t deploy...I had been in communication with the district (of Ucluelet) administrator (Andrew Yeates) during the course of the events and he was trying to get a message to the crew to stand down.” Yeates confirmed this conversation took place but added that it is not in the Ucluelet fire brigade’s nature to ignore a call. “We were talking in the morning about it and I was trying to get a hold of the (fire) chief and others about the controlled burn going on,” Yeates said adding, “It’s always difficult because if dispatch calls them out they’re going to go out.” Jones said he arrived on site to explain the situation and later that night received an apology from the Ucluelet fire brigade.

not make it to the landfill before closing time so were stored in the area waiting to be picked up the following day and these piles contained unsafe burning material that locals saw and assumed would be burned. “Unsuspecting citizens who are meaning well walk onto the site and figure everything looks like that when in fact it was only a couple piles up front,” he said. Jones said the controlled burn would continue into the week with one remaining pile of Thornton Motel remains set to be burned. “That pile has been permitted by the forest service to be burnt this week,” he said. “We’ll be done on that site I would say probably at the latest Thursday but hopefully by the end of the day (Wednesday).” reporter@westerlynews.ca

Rescue, continued from Page 1

“We were informed that clean construction waste would be used help start the fire. Today we have been questioned about the content of the burn pile and there are allegations that hazardous material may have been burned. We understand the seriousness of these allegations and it will be investigated thoroughly,” McCarthy said. The Ucluelet (First Nation Government) has jurisdiction over Treaty Lands and they are subject to the Ucluelet (First Nation) Government Environmental Protection Act which is aimed at protecting air, land and water and prohibits the discharge of contaminants.

TOWN HALL MEETING ON RECYCLING

“I ended up getting a call last night from the deputy (fire) chief Mark Fortune who apologized and basically said it was miscommunication,” Jones said. Fortune did not immediately return calls by press time. Jones said by the time the matter was sorted, social media speculation was already rampant as locals were incorrectly reporting unsafe materials were being burned. “Unfortunately no one ever called us to get clarification they just sort of get on social media and start to speculate,” he said. The social media confusion was sparked by several piles of debris that were not part of the burn as the Thornton Motel demolition involved various debris that was sorted into piles some set to be burned others set for the landfill, according to Jones. He said two loads of debris did

Research currently underway at the Vancouver Aquarium, as part of the North Pacific Universities Marine Mammal Research Consortium, endeavors to explain why Steller sea lion populations are declining. Entanglement in garbage and marine debris is one of the human-caused issues they’re facing: it’s estimated there are as many as 400 sea lions ensnared in trash in just the Pacific Rim National Park region of B.C.’s coast. “This again was a plastic packing strap, a material we’re seeing repeatedly in these rescue efforts,” Haulena said. “We now have almost 500 recorded entanglements reported in the region from 2005-2012. This likely represents approx. 300 individual sea lions (when re-sights are reporter@ westerlynews.ca accounted for). We have two more funded rescues, and I still more data analysis to do,” Szaniszlo said.

out, which is why Dr. Haulena is currently the only vet in Canada able to perform these rescues, but he has support from staff at the Marine Mammal Rescue Centre, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and from Vancouver Aquarium affiliate researcher Szaniszlo, who has been documenting entangled sea lions on our coast since 2005. Since this rescue effort took place in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, it also required assistance from Parks Canada staff, and Brian Congdon of Subtidal Adventures in Ucluelet provided his boat, time and equipment. This was the fourth disentanglement trip — the team will make a total of six rescue trips under current funding. It’s an expensive endeavor: as well as travel and accommodation expenses for the team, medical supplies are costly; the anesthetic used to immobilize the animals is more than $300 per dart. Efforts are partly funded by a grant from the Canadian Wildlife Federation, provided for this pilot project to develop protocols and

techniques for disentangling sea lions in the wild, something that had never been done successfully in Canada before. The continuing plight of B.C.’s sea lions is a reminder to all to be more careful with garbage. It’s important to note that sea lions are large, wild animals and rescues should not be attempted by the public. If you see a marine mammal in distress, call Vancouver Aquarium’s Marine Mammal Rescue Centre at 604 258 SEAL (7325) or Fisheries and Oceans Canada at 1 800 465 4336. “Do not try to handle marine animals,” said Dr. Haulena. “Improper removal of entangled gear may make the injury worse as vital structures, such as veins, arteries and nerves lie in close proximity to the entanglements.” With files from the Vancouver Aquarium.

EAT/PLAY/LIVE: EVENTS

Robotic Horse Mechanical Sun here this weekend Special to Westerly News Robotic Horse Mechanical Sun will perform two evenings of unforgettable music in the West Coast’s twin capitals. They take the reins on Friday, June 13 at Jack’s Pub in Tofino and on Saturday, June 14 at the Army & Navy and Air Force Veterans Club in Ucluelet. Best described as “outlaw roots,” RHMS perform original material that tells real life tales close to the heart and the funny bone. Their songs are both sweet and gritty, richly textured with deep harmonies laced with the mandolin, double bass, electric and lap

steel guitar, and percussion. “The music is brewed with elements of country, folk, rock, and blues. It is country music that has been hijacked by poets and rebels … We have some colourful history under our belts”, says RHMS drummer Andrew Bate. “Our music reflects this. You write different material when you are older. What is important to you changes.” RHMS are at home in any folk or country music venue. With their refreshing alternative sound, they really appeal to the hipster crowd. Because of the acoustic roots of their music, they have the versatility to

perform unplugged or full-on electric. The cast includes Brent Fitzsimmons on guitar, banjo, vocals; Jeff Doran on guitar and vocals; Andrew Bate on drums, vocals; Jamie Swann on double bass and vocals and Jason Lambing on lap steel, mandolin and vocals. Robotic Horse Mechanical Sun are based on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. You can learn more and listen to their music at www.robotichorsemechanicalsun.ca Right: members of Robotic Horse Mechanical Sun.

EAT/PLAY/LIVE: WEST COAST WEEKEND

Markets in Ukee, Tofino places to ‘mingle, mix and be’ When 250,000 visitors earmark the Tofino Public Market as someJACKIE CARMICHAEL thing they /MANAGING want to EDITOR get to while visiting the West Coast, I believe them. Rumour has it, according to a visitor’s sur-

vey, 25% of the respondents put the market on their ‘do list.’ I am a fan of both the West Coast markets - and if I make it to the Ukee Friday Night Market, chances are good I will get to the Tofino market on Saturday. I have even been known to pick up a guitar and hoot a bit with friends; kinda partial

to Peter, Paul & Mary – that sort of thing. There’s a line from one of my all-time favourite movies, “You’ve Got Mail” where Tom Hanks’ character calls his book store chain a piazza “a place where people can mingle, mix and be.” I feel that way about bookstores myself - and that goes double for our markets.

FRIDAY NIGHT

The West Coast markets are a place where you can mingle with other West Coasters - and people from places as diverse as Germany and Nanaimo. To market, to market, to buy a ... well, you wouldn’t believe what you can buy at market. You can mix up your shopping, grazing for perogies and tamales and Flo’s pie and home-made cookies and everything from delicate handmade jewelry to sturdy furnishings hammered out from driftwood and cedar roses. You can hear local talent, acoustic, electric, downhome, uptown. You can see a balloon whale materialize right in front of your eyes and take it with you on your day or evening journey. You can browse around at nearby stores, or make reservations with nearby expert guides to rent kayaks or watch whales. You can sup or sip at nearby and very hospitable restaurants and watering holes, grab a tea or a coffee or a healthy juice loaded with fresh, local goodness. You might want to stroll down to the nearby docks - there’s several in both towns - to see the working waterfront in all its salty glory.

BUFFET

You can just be yourself - in the lovely outdoors, whether its bright or a bit drizzly; you can be entertained with local musicians providing the soundtrack for a lovely West Coast Day, with the ocean and rainforest and shopping at local stores and dining at local restaurants all close at hand. Over the summer market season, look for a new West Coast Markets page in the Westerly News. We’re excited about it – and we’re looking forward to seeing YOU at the markets.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you are ready for something or someone new. Right now is a good time to reach out and connect with a new passion. Things will get more interesting rather quickly. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 You need to focus and get back to work this week, Gemini. Things have slipped out of your fingers, and it could take a little while before you get back on a schedule. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Shop around for the best deals before making a big purchase, Cancer. A little extra work can lead to substantial savings. There are deals to be had, so be patient. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Expect to reach a milestone in your life, Leo. This may have something to do with your family or career. Either way, the praise you will receive is warranted. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Sometimes it can be easy for you to get fixated on a certain way of doing things, Virgo. There are really many different paths to the same outcome when you are open to ideas. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, do not panic when a glitch arises in your plans. Just approach the situation from a different angle, and you will find a solution in no time. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Try not to push yourself too hard this week, Scorpio. This is a good time to maintain a low profile.

This is an ideal time to get things accomplished. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 You are never one to walk away from a challenge, Capricorn. This week you will be presented with a big obstacle, and you will have to step up to tackle the hard stuff.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Someone gets bent out of shape over something that seems laughable to you, Pisces. You may need to adjust your view.

COMMUNITY

Ukee salutes RCMP Sgt. Jeff Swann ANDREW BAILEY

Westerly News Ucluelet laid out the star treatment to one of its finest last week as the community gathered to salute Sgt. Jeff Swann. The event was organized by Ucluelet local ‘Hitchhike’ Mike Gitelman and was set up as a surprise to Swann who was lured to the community centre by a fauxreport of an unidentified male causing a disturbance. Swann arrived expecting to make an arrest but was instead greeted by the Jr. Canadian Rangers and marched into the centre’s main hall where a packed audience of supporters cheered him in. “It was a huge surprise,” he told the Westerly after the event. “It was overwhelming, it absolutely was.” As he was taking in the overwhelming atmosphere, the stage’s curtain was drawn back to reveal Swann’s family and a slew of special guests on hand to join the celebration. RCMP staffer Gaylene Thorogood kicked off the accolade-train as the event’s master of ceremonies. “He is the hardest working person I know, he cares about this community and the surrounding areas and I know this by his actions,” Thorogood said of Swann. “Jeff, your compassion, devotion and time are all valued and appreciated by all of us...Actions do speak louder than words and your actions go always above and beyond.” After providing some lighthearted jabs through a poem he penned for the event, municipal councillor Geoff Lyons presented

are in abundance while success stories like Swann’s are refreshingly inspiring. “We often hear of what can go wrong but rarely do we hear of when things go right, which is why so many people are here today to recognize what can be accomplished in a community with strong and capable leadership,” he wrote. “Your work has allowed the positive natural values of the area, the culture, environment, and sense of community to outshine and overcome the darker challenges of society.” Swann’s parents attended and expressed pride in their son and appreciation for the community’s hospitality. “We’re very proud of this boy,” said Bob Swann, Jeff’s father, who served over 30 years with the RCMP. Jeff’s mother Mavis said the event’s attendance illustrated how thoroughly reciprocated Jeff’s love of Ucluelet is. “I think this town is awesome; this is a wonderful, wonderful, thing that you’ve done for our son,” she said. “Thank you Ucluelet for appreciating our son.” Jeff’s sister, Const.

PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT

New MMBC program wreaks recycling havoc at curb JACKIE CARMICHAEL

Westerly News The province’s new MMBC program for residential recycling is creating some serious challenges for local residents and their collector on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, Sonbird Refuse & Recycling Ltd. Under the MMBC rules there are some new items that can now be included but there are also items such as soft plastics that can’t be included at curbside. The newly imposed system is wreaking havoc at the curb, said Chris Bird, owner

of Sonbird. “Some residents are doing their best while others are frustrated and taking it out on our employees. We are getting comments such as: ‘I’ve been doing this for years’, ‘all the rules have changed’, and ‘I am too confused so I’ll just put it in the trash.’ We’ve endured a lot of verbal abuse over the last little while,” he said. On a recent pickup day, Sonbird audited the contents of the recycling bins and the results were very concerning, Bird said. “Over 20% of the stops had product not acceptable to MMBC. Contamination

included glass, Styrofoam, soft plastics, dual material products and unclean materials,” he said. Contamination is a serious issue as MMBC is authorized to levy some serious fines for non-compliance, he said. “We no longer receive funding for the recycle depot – it has been a disaster to not have that available to the public free. The funding for curbside is so greatly reduced that the system now wants to pay us for our recycling by the tonne when we bring it to Nanaimo. If we go into the community and the contamination rate

is high and we don’t pick up your recycling because of contamination which was at 25% on our last pickup, we then have less recycling to turn in and less revenue coming in,” Bird said. “Now we’ve got one tonne to take over there, we’ll get $100 for that recycling, and we’ve run our truck around community at a cost of $500 a week to get $100 for recycling. If we do send contamination through the system, there are fines imposed by the company that’s running the MMBC program that are up to $1,100 per incident,” he added. Despite handing out new

guidelines and sifting through where possible at the curb, there were 87 “soft plastic violations” in their last load on Wednesday, he said. “The other big problem with this program is it doesn’t cover multiple-resident units, like apartments, trailer parks, condos, stratas. Vinyl Village in Tofino isn’t covered.” The province is now charging producers such as newspapers fees for recycling, but if frustrated consumers toss recyclables in the trash – or if they upcycle them, using newspapers in garden projects or papier

mache or craft projects – the companies that printed those papers still have to pay recycling fees. There are town hall meetings scheduled next week in Ucluelet and Tofino to share information and discuss how to make the new program work for the West Coast, Bird said. “We’re appealing to the community to read the instructions and follow them,” Bird said, directing residents to www.WestCoastRecyling.ca Editor@westerlynews.ca
