The owners of the Oak Bay Beach Hotel will unveil details today of a partnership with the David Foster Foundation which will span the next decade. Foster, a former Victoria resident, is expected to attend the announcement, which involves “one of the largest donations to our foundation in our history,” said Michael Ravenhill, the foundation’s chief executive officer. Kevin and Shawna Walker, owners of the hotel, will be making a seven-figure contribution to the foundation, which provides financial support to Canadian families with children in need of organ transplants and promotes organ donor registration throughout North America. “This (announcement) not only is something that shows a financial commitment, but a commitment to the cause in the form of an awareness campaign that the hotel will be making in a big way,” Ravenhill said. The deal has been in the works for nearly two years. Kevin Walker initially approached Ravenhill with “the seed of an idea.” “I wondered if David Foster would like to return to Victoria to celebrate the opening of the hotel,” Walker said. “Mike knew that I was warm to the philanthropic work that David was involved in, and it didn’t take long for us to start working on this.”

Public input on city planning overwhelming Roszan Holmen News staff

After months of gathering feedback on the official community plan, City of Victoria staff were worried they might need to ignore it to meet target deadlines – unless the deadline was extended City council says it was wiser to slow down the clock and incorporate some of the public’s wishes. Between April 7 and June 10, city staff gathered feedback from more than 6,000 people at 57 events, such as meetings and workshops with different stakeholder groups including youth, First Nations and community associations. The total far surpassed the city’s target of 5,000. Coun. Marianne Alto called the public engagement, reaching almost 10 per cent of the population, “extraordinary.”

People’s ideas on the draft document, which lays out the groundwork for growing the city over the coming decades, spanned the gamut. “I think it’s fair to say the public is generally supportive of the draft plan … in terms of a strong downtown core and a network of town centres,” said senior planner Scott Cameron. People did point out some areas they’d like to see added, however. “People really wanted to see performance measures added to all the sections,” Cameron said. “A number of stakeholders indicated we needed more of an emphasis on the harbour and the role it plays in the city.” City council passed Cameron’s recommendation to push the adoption of the plan back to March 2012, rather than aiming for October 2011.

Gov’t House takes food from the yard to the table Emma Prestwich News staff

Standing in Government House’s gleaming steel kitchen, volunteer Penny Tennenhouse grins and holds up a handful of purple Japanese beets. “The beets are the showgirls today,” she says. Tennenhouse laughs with chef Christophe Letard and volunteer Bill McKechnie as they admire the day’s pickings from the property’s new vegetable garden. “We make enough to supply a lot of produce. If we were market gardening, we would make a few thousand a year,” says McKechnie, who came up with the idea to grow food three years ago. While planting began last year, this is the first season the garden has been in full production. This is as local as it gets for Letard, who takes the best of the harvest for the dishes he makes for Lt.-Gov. Steven Point, his wife, Gwendolyn, and their guests. He says since the Points have such hectic schedules, they want fresh, healthy food when they come home. “I keep it simple. I’m going to give them nutritious meals to help them cope with whatever

they’re about to do,” Letard says. The garden can support small receptions of up to 25 people. Letard still has to get many ingredients from other local growers, but McKechnie says they’re developing a planting schedule to supply him with more produce at peak times like September, when Government House is bustling with visitors. The remainder of the veggies go to the seven volunteers, who keep up the garden through donations. Friends of Government House has been looking after the grounds since 1992, after Prince Charles visited the gardens and

said they needed upkeep. When McKechnie first started the garden, he was planting alone in a small concrete box. Last year, the Friends of Government House gave him a $500 startup grant and he has since been joined by seven volunteers. In the main part of the garden grow winter vegetables and lettuce. Old brick structures house berries, artichokes, tomatoes and herbs. McKechnie says Rideau Hall in Ottawa is the only other similar institution that has a garden. “We’re the envy of government houses across the country.”

Play it safe over summer. Summer season is in full swing, with great weather, summer vacations, and outdoor entertaining the order of the day.

Before you fire up the BBQ or jump in for a cool down, remember these safety precautions to keep your family, friends, and home safe.

insurance outlook


Whether you’re insurance entertaining family with and friends or just Janella looking to cook Wilson up a tasty dinner, barbeques present a safety risk to you and your home. Before you fire ‘er up, remember these handy tips: • Always light a gas barbeque with the lid open. A leaking or open valve can cause propane to accumulate under the lid or in the basin, and the gas could explode when lit. • Before you turn on the propane, the match or lighter should already be burning. If the barbeque doesn’t ignite, turn the control valves off, wait five minutes and try again. • Once the barbeque is lit, do not move it or leave it unattended. • Barbeque on a solid surface, away from shrubbery, overhangs and foot traffic. Ensure a flow of air for combustion and ventilation. • Never use a barbeque indoors or in a garage. • Use long-handled utensils and beware of loose clothing that could catch fire. • Check for leaks. Leave the barbeque valve off and the cylinder valve on. Spread a soapy solution on all fittings and

• Keep a fire extinguisher handy. Don’t try to put out a grease fire with water - it will only spread the flames. If fire has engulfed the propane tank, evacuate the area immediately - at least 200 metres away from the tank - and call the fire department.

Another summertime fun activity is cooling off in the pool. Owning or using a swimming pool represents a liability risk. Follow a few poolside rules to keep everyone safe: • Supervise children near water at all times. • Enroll children in swimming lessons. Water safety skills are life skills and must be learned. • Use PFDs (personal floatation devices) for children under five when playing near the water. • If in doubt of the depth, do not dive in head first, instead wade into the water. • Make sure you set clear rules. Last but not least, ensure your home, belongings, and liabilities are adequately covered.

Behind him two excavators from H.L. Demolition and Waste Management chewed their way through the hall, built in 1929. A few early risers witnessed the building come down, scheduled by the demolition company to happen on a weekend, likely to minimize impacts on pedestrian and vehicle traffic since Park Place was partially closed, Miller said. “It’s like watching a bit of history,” said Esquimalt resident Amber Hemminger, who watched with her boss, Ray Kennedy, owner

The demolition tugged at Kennedy’s heartstrings. “I was in the navy for 30 years so I’ve seen the building for that length of time, (and) it’s kind of sad to see it go,” Kennedy said. “It’s progress anyway. There’ll be something nice and new in there. It’ll be good.” “It was kind of an eyesore,” Hemminger added. They said they have no objections to the

Craigdarroch Castle celebrates with garden party Erin McCracken News staff

Strolling minstrels, jugglers, the lilting strains of live music, ladies and gentlemen partaking of cake and sipping tea – the decadence of the Victorian era will come alive this weekend on the newly refurbished south lawn of Craigdarroch Castle. The free outdoor garden party for the public on Saturday (Aug. 13) celebrates the end of $750,000 worth of restoration and refurbishment work on the castle grounds, which lasted two years. Now, when visitors arrive, they will be transported back in time when they pass through replica four-metre-high sandstone and iron gateposts marking the original entrance to the estate where Fort Street and Joan Crescent meet. “It’s pretty exciting,”

Laura Torbet, Craigdarroch Castle floor supervisor, prepares to enjoy a spot of tea courtesy of Elisabeth Hazell, the castle’s assistant manager of operations and development. said Elisabeth Hazell, assistant manger of castle operations and development. “When you come up on Fort Street, you can actually see them and it

gives you a much better sense of what it was like to pull up to the castle (by carriage) back in the 1890s.” The effort and expense were worth the

results, which have captured the former grandeur of the Dunsmuir mansion, built in 1890, said Hazell. If Dorothy Laundy, one of the national historic site’s more active champions who died in 2006, was still alive “she would have been absolutely thrilled,” Hazell said. Laundy’s family will be at the garden party for a plaque dedication that will honour their loved one’s contribution. “It literally was her dying wish to have this project completed,” said Hazell. Laundy, a long-time volunteer and past president of the Craigdarroch Castle Historical Museum Society, left an endowment to help pay for the grounds to be restored. The remainder of the work was paid for through museum admission fees. The 78,000-square-

foot south lawn today echoes how it looked in the past, complete with a huge esplanade with walking paths and garden benches. The archi-

tect’s original plans were used for authenticity. “Now it’s just really elegant,” Hazell said. The free outdoor public garden party hap-

pens tomorrow (Aug. 13) from 2 to 5 p.m. Craigdarroch Castle is located at 1050 Joan Cres.

Facing the music on STIs There’s a centuries-old saying about good intentions most people should be familiar with. And while the idea of reducing the spread of sexually transmitted infections is noble, there are a few problems with the plan to let people email their lovers to warn them they could have an STI. First of all, the rather cute e-cards developed for the B.C. Centre for Disease Control could make some people believe the issue of STIs is not something to take seriously. This is particularly a concern for young people who are just beginning an active sex life. The ability to send these e-cards anonymously, with quips about being “screwed” or taken “out Nothing cute of action” is supposed to about disease make it easier for people to warn their lovers to get checked. That’s great if it allows someone to get a diagnosis and be treated before a disease can do irreparable damage. However, there’s a problem if the message some people hear is that transmitting an STI is no big deal because you can anonymously inform your partners after the fact. Managing intimate relationships has always been tricky territory for men and women. That’s no exception for the current generation of young adults who seem to spend as much time communicating electronically as they do in person. Many older adults find it mind-boggling that some people feel it’s fair to end a relationship by changing your status on Facebook. And maybe it’s a little old-fashioned but we share the belief that some things should be done in person. Having sex requires a level of maturity and if someone is old enough to be intimate with another person they need to be able to understand the potential consequences of their action. It’s fine to take a shortcut if it saves someone from a lifetime of suffering because of an untreated STI. But let’s not pretend sending an anonymous e-card is the same as taking personal responsibility. The only way to do that is to face the music and talk to your partner (or partners) in person.

I’m a big supporter of any initiative to get us out of our cars. But I’m not convinced the timing is right for rapid transit. I’m worried our population can’t swallow the $950-million price tag, even if the federal and provincial governments provide their twothirds share. We need more information to make a sound decision, which is why I applaud Victoria MP Denise Savoie, who called for an independent study of the issue on Tuesday. I’d like solid financial analysis of the experience of smaller cities that have built similar lines. By the year 2040, (when the rapid-transit line promises a significantly faster option than the car) the Capital Region’s population will have grown by about 60,000. That’s many more taxpayers to share the significant capital costs, and many more potential riders to pay into the system’s ongoing operating costs. More riders justify more frequent trains, ensuring no half-hour waits on Douglas Street at 9 p.m. Roszan Holmen is a reporter with the Victoria News.

Bike infrastructure Tougher laws needed for cyclists pays big dividends Most arguments against bike lanes are absurd. Consider this: we have wide roads everywhere to accommodate cars. On either side of many of those roads, we have pedestrian sidewalks. In most large urban areas, we also have bus lanes and transit systems. When cyclists ride on roads, drivers often get annoyed. If they ride on sidewalks, pedestrians rightly get angry. Human-powered transportation will only get more popular as gas prices rise and as the negative consequences of our carcentric culture increase. We should be doing everything we can to discourage single-occupant automobile use while encouraging public transit and pedestrian and pedal-powered movement. In many North American cities, commuters scream bloody murder if it takes them an extra two minutes to get to their destination by car. There’s also the argument that slowing car traffic down is a good thing. In some European cities, planners are finding that making life more difficult for drivers while providing incentives for people to take transit, walk, or cycle creates numerous benefits, from David Suzuki reducing pollution and smog-related health Science Matters problems to cutting greenhouse gas emissions and making cities safer and friendlier. Building bike lanes also creates jobs and other economic spinoffs, according to a study from the Political Economy Research Institute in Amherst, Mass. Researchers found that bicycling infrastructure creates the most jobs for a given level of spending. For every $1 million spent, cycling projects created an average of 11.4 jobs in the state where the project was located, pedestrian-only projects created about 10 jobs, and multi-use trails created about 9.6 jobs. Infrastructure combining road construction with pedestrian and bicycle facilities created slightly fewer jobs for the same amount of spending, and roadonly projects created the least, with a total of 7.8 jobs per $1 million. One of the main reasons is that more of the money for roadbuilding goes to materials and equipment whereas with bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure more goes to wages and salaries. It’s important to note that European cities have matched disincentives to drive with improved public transit. After all, not everyone can get to their destination by walking or cycling. But with fewer cars and reduced gridlock, those who must use automobiles – including service and emergency-response vehicles and taxis – have an easier time getting around. Fortunately, the backlash against cycling infrastructure improvements appears to be subsiding. As oil becomes scarce and pollution and climate change increase, people are finally realizing that transporting a 90-kilogram person in two tonnes of metal just isn’t sustainable, especially in urban areas.

What is it going to take for politicians of all political stripes – both provincially and federally – to wake up and see that a major shakeup is needed in our judicial and transportation systems? I’m talking about cyclists. All cyclists should have insurance, be licensed and wear a helmet. Bicycles should have their licence visibly displayed, have a horn and working signal lights. These rules need to be strictly enforced. Explain one thing, and this is a true story as it happened to a colleague of mine: If a pedestrian is in a marked crosswalk and gets hit by a cyclist who doesn’t stop to help, and in the meantime the victim’s medical bills are steadily rising is that fair? An answer would be greatly appreciated. Joe Buczkowski Victoria

Oregon does it right; B.C. has long way to go The saddest aspect of the whole HST referendum debacle is how Elections B.C. has frittered away its wonderful reputation. As a British Columbian, I find it downright embarrassing how the mail-in voting process was carried out in such a hamhanded manner, compared to the smooth, efficient way it is done in Oregon. It’s like the difference between a performance by the Bolshoi Ballet and one by the Three Stooges. In Oregon, there is none of this cloak–and-dagger nonsense of processing and counting votes at some secret location. There is a “sunshine” policy with 36 election centres across the state at which citizens are not only permitted but

encouraged to observe the entire process from the arrival of the envelopes in the mail through the final counting of ballots. Moreover, the ID accompanying every single ballot is carefully checked in Oregon – not just a small random sample, as in B.C. And if officials in Oregon have doubts about identification on any certification envelope, the ballot isn’t arbitrarily discarded as in B.C. – the voter is instead contacted and given 10 days to come to an election centre and verify their ID. In addition, if Oregon citizens arrive at an election centre at the last minute to cast their ballot, the doors aren’t shut in their faces. Officials instead try to make sure everyone who is in the vicinity of the election centre at the time of the deadline gets a chance to vote. I can’t understand why election officials in B.C. stumbled along trying to reinvent the wheel on mail-in voting when all they had to do was borrow the wheel that has been spinning smoothly and efficiently for so many years in Oregon.

Government should leave ICBC money alone No one likes paying car insurance, but under a public system we’re supposed to have some say in where the profits are going. ICBC employees have worked exceptionally hard and have been a key part of ensuring ICBC’s value to B.C. drivers. Unfortunately for employees and drivers, the B.C. Liberal government clawed back ICBC’s profits into general revenue:

$990 million. Meanwhile, ICBC has increased compensation for body shops, physical therapists, and lawyers. And now B.C. drivers are being told to expect rate hikes when they should be receiving rebates. Drivers have a right to be angry with the way the Liberal government has skimmed the profits that should have gone into rebates. A public auto insurance system is the best way to go, but before it can reach its full potential to serve British Columbians the government needs to stop taking money out of ICBC.

Don’t let the highest property values in the city fool you. The majority of residents in Rockland are tenants, living in apartment buildings near the downtown, or in estate homes split into suites. The peaceful ambiance can be deception, too. Neighbourhood association members are frequently challenging city hall, and they’re tenacious.

Gems and draws Government House grounds Art Gallery Langham Court Theatre Craigdarroch Castle Moss Street Paint in Music on the Lawn

Challenges Insensitive redevelopment Lack of parks Garden-eating deer

Marketplace Starting in 2005, average single-family homes rose sharply from about $618,000 to $825,000 by 2009. Since then, values have stagnated while most other neighbourhoods continue to climb. Despite its proximity to downtown, Rockland has kept the commercial-creep at bay. The neighbourhood has fewer than a dozen retail outlets and residents insist on keeping it that way.

Don Denton/News staff

Because of the abundance of large lots in Rockland, many of these so-called “two-headed monsters” have sprung up, to the chagrin of the neighbourhood association. President Janet Simpson, right, hopes recent bylaw changes prohibiting these semi-attached dwellings will save houses from demolition.

Protecting neighbourhood values Roszan Holmen News staff

Walking through the canopied streets of Rockland, lined with historic estates tucked behind stone gates, one could be forgiven for mistaking it as the Oak Bay of Victoria. Certainly, its heritage and grandeur make it a gem within the city, reinforced by the four walking brochures and 20-odd daily tour buses showcasing its streets. While Oak Bay is known for high-priced houses, Rockland’s average single-family home is valued at more than $800,000. Both communities also have a reputation for resisting change. While most neighbourhood associations are pushing for updates to their decades-old neighbourhood plans, Rockland’s governing body likes its 1987 plan just fine. “We’re happy with it,” said Rockland president Janet Simpson. The problem is the city planning department doesn’t recognize it, she said, adding character homes are frequently lost to redevelopment. The neighbourhood association has gone as far as seeking a lawyer to enforce the plan’s land-use principles, such as preserving historic homes, mature trees and gate posts. Simpson points to Despard Avenue as an example of

a neighbourhood eye sore, where redevelopment hasn’t respected the character of the neighbourhood. Other examples of conflict include the redevelopment of the proposed Caroline Macklin estate and the recovery centre on Fort Street. The city’s garden suite pilot project also rankles. At the last annual general meeting of the association, director Bill Brooks strung up a big blue tarp, the size of an allowable garden suite, to illustrate exactly how much green space could be lost to the rental unit.

But lest one likens these objections to the anti-secondary-suite vehemence dominating Oak Bay, Rockland is not a neighbourhood fearful of renters. “We’re not a bunch of rich people that are living in big houses,” said Brooks, insisting it’s not about NIMBYism. Most of the big homes are subdivided into many suites, he explained, adding 70 per cent of the neighbourhood’s residents are tenants. “I’m amazed at how well owner residents and rental residents get along,” said Brooks. The 20-somethings add so much energy to the neighbourhood, he added. Reaching out to them, however, has proven to be problematic. That’s because the association can’t drop flyers or newsletters into mailboxes of apartment buildings. “Rental people are welcome … and they have the same voice at city council,” added former director Lois John. These days, the association is trying to draw more members. Their idea is to introduce more social events, instead of mainly dealing with land-use issues which leaves volunteers feeling burnt-out and ineffectual. For instance, residents were encouraged to bring a friend to a $10 wine-and-cheese party at Government House. The cost also covered the association’s annual membership fee, explained John. “What a deal, heh?” A9 ••A11

Tango music arose from a clash of cultures, and true to its roots, Victoria’s Tango Festival will blur the line between tango, jazz and Latin American music. “There’s a big crossover in Buenos Aires and other places between Latin music and tango,” said event co-ordinator June Waters. Dance floors in Argentina will vary between the dance styles, giving everyone a chance to get up and dance, she said. Local group Kumbia, known for helping to start the salsa scene in Victoria, will perform, giving audiences a chance to listen and dance to their tango and broader repertoire. “We also have a jazz concert this year that has jazz, jazz-tango and tango in it, because … we’ve got a fabulous musician who is a world champion harmonica player that isn’t bound to one (style),” said Waters. The annual event, in its fourth year, has a mandate to increase live tango music in Victoria. While many people think of tango as a style of dance, this festival is about the music. The style of music started in

the culture clash “that began in Buenos Aires in the late 1880s,” said Waters. A large immigrant population contributed influences from Cuba, Italy and other countries. “It was their grief and longing for their homeland that was expressed in the tango music. Then it was transported to Europe … and it continued to evolve.” Composer and musician Astor Piazolla changed the genre radically in the 1970s, drawing on an existing movement by tango musicians. “They didn’t want to play just dance music. They wanted to go further and develop and expand it,” said Waters. Piazolla’s music was intended for concert halls, rather than dance halls. It’s his style, called “tango nuevo” that

Friday,August August12, 12,2011 2011--VICTORIA OAK BAY Friday,


Local author shortlisted for culinary book award Ryan Flaherty News staff

The solution to many of the world’s food supply problems are in your own backyard. That’s the philosophy behind Carolyn Herriot’s book The Zero Mile Diet: A Year Round Guide to Growing Organic Food. And if reaction to the book is any indicator, it’s an idea that’s catching on. The Saanich resident was recently named to the shortlist for a 2011 Canadan Culinary Book Award in the special interest category for the book, which teaches readers how to feed themselves in a sustainable manner. “I was inspired by (Vancouver couple Alisa Smith and J. B. MacKinnon’s) 100Mile Diet,” Herriot said, “but it doesn’t tell you what to do. It outlines the difficulties

and the problems and the challenges. “Zero Mile is a solution guide. It’s not just another vegetable gardening book. This is a book about how to feed yourself from your own backyard.” Herriot, who runs an organic seed business called Seeds of Victoria, says global insecurity over things like climate change, world hunger, and even the fact that Vancouver Island could be hit by a major earthquake at any time all helped inspire the book, her second. “It seemed to me that having more selfreliance was a good way to go,” she said. Making the shift to sustainable gardening is easier than most people realize. “We don’t grow our own food anymore even though gardening is the number one leisure pursuit in North America,” she said. “It only requires a small paradigm shift. We can keep gardening but instead

of growing only ornamental plants, grow edible ornamental plants.” The Zero Mile Diet takes readers through “the A to Z’” of vegetables and culinary herbs, Herriot said. It also teaches them how to save the seeds for future crops. “For me, sustainability and food production has to take seed saving into account.” The Canadian Culinary Book Awards recognize excellence in food and beverage writing while promoting Canadian food culture. Gold and silver prizes are awarded in three categories. The winners will be announced on Nov. 7. “It makes perfect sense to me to go back into the garden, grow more of your own food, get your children involved, and sit around the table together,” Herriot said.

Sex partners urged to disclose infections via Internet e-cards


It’s an Internet greeting card no one really wants to receive. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control is promoting a free online service that helps break the news to former sex partners that you may have given them a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Users of the inSPOT service can send anonymous e-cards via email to up to six partners warning them that they should get tested. Recipients get a link to information on how and where to get testing. The site,, also offers information on STIs. Dr. Mark Gilbert at the BCCDC said notifications are critical to combatting and preventing the spread of sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea and HIV. “Anyone can use inSPOT. It doesn’t require visitors to login or register to use the service,” he said. “It’s free, simple and easy to use.” Users select an e-card with one of several different messages, enter the partner’s email address and can also add a personal message. “Sometimes there are strings attached,” reads one of the e-cards. Another says: “It’s not what you brought to the party, it’s what you left with. I left with an STI. You might have, too.” The service has been implemented in other North American cities after being developed in 2004 in San Francisco. InSPOT stands for Internet Notification Service for Partners or Tricks. OUR VIEW: A question of accountability, Page A8 • A15

Dragon boat festival launches today Roszan Holmen News staff

Ninety dragon boat teams from the Pacific Northwest are trained and ready to have their spirits awoken for the great race at Ship Point this weekend. Their competitive spirits will be ignited at a traditional eye-dotting ceremony, which kicks off a full weekend of racing and entertainment at the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival. It all takes place at Ship Point. Races, called heats, take place all day Saturday and Sunday. The 20-person teams, including 22 from

Victoria, will be randomly matched on the first day. Once teams are categories by skill, Sunday’s races promise to be nail biters as dragon boaters race the 500-metre course to beat others with similar experience levels. There’s also lots to do for non-racers. Two stages host entertainment, including multicultural dancing and music with such acts as Furusato Dancers, Harmony Belly Dance, The Midnights, and Salsa Caliente. There’s also a food court, activity centre for kids, beer garden ongoing throughout the weekend.

Eco-friendly living at Woodland Creek Jennifer Blyth Gold is green these days in Sooke – at least for new home owners in the Woodland Creek development. Built by locally owned and operated developer Totangi Properties and priced from $384,900, the project’s latest release of single-family Craftsman-style homes offers a variety of floorplans to choose from – all certified Built Green Gold. The fifth phase of the Woodland Creek project, just outside the Sooke village, sits near the Galloping Goose Trail, SeaParc Leisure Centre and schools. In addition to standard green features, such as low-VOC paints and energy-efficient fixtures, Woodland Creek is the first development in Sooke to have individual exchange heating, cooling and hot water. The technology and costs are now at a place where the geothermal can be offered and the homes still kept affordable, explains Totangi’s Blair Robertson. The results are resonating with buyers. “People like the quality of the finishes and they are very much

offer, Built Green features also tend to be very healthy, with little off-gassing of chemicals, for example. While traditionally Sooke home sales have tended to be more about location and affordability, these homes are also attracting buyers who have researched the green features and like what they’re offering. “It’s more about features that are consistent with their values.� Of course, the style offered is a selling point, too. Standard features of Woodland Creek homes include natural gas fireplaces with wood mantles, designerselected light fixtures, premium engineered wood flooring, master suite walk-in closets, heated tile floors in the ensuite and main bathroom, gourmet kitchens with energy star stainless appliances, landscaped yards, future-proof media wiring and more. When complete, Woodland Creek will feature 110 single-family homes, 80 townhomes, a neighbourhood commercial-zoned area and public parks, complete with a pond, walking trails and playground.

City launches second annual Park(ing) Day

Friday, August 12, 2011 - VICTORIA

The possibilities presented by three-by-nine metres of pavement are endless. Last year, people got their first crack at transforming the downtown real estate, typically known as parking stalls, for one day.

Only eight groups stepped forward on short notice, but they presented a wide range of ideas. Park(ing) Day is a global initiative, with a mandate to spark dialogue about the way cities allocate space. On Sept.

16, the City of Victoria is offering up a second opportunity to take over one of 20 parking stalls. To apply for a permit, call 250-361-0257 or email by 4 p.m. on Aug. 26,

One of the highlights of the new partnership is a gala celebration planned for next May that will be the centrepiece of the hotel’s grand opening. Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre will host the event, which will begin with a black-tie affair for about 800 people featuring dinner, award presentations, and a live auction of “about six or seven priceless items,” said Ravenhill. Following the auction, the doors will open to the general public for a concert by multiple Grammy award winner Foster, who will be joined by a number of special guests throughout the evening. “Most fundraising events are expensive affairs,” Ravenhill said. “We wanted to make this accessible to everyone and allow the David Foster public to be involved.” “It really will be a show you don’t want to miss,” he added. “One you will always remember, and for a cause you will never forget.” The partnership coincides with the foundation’s 25th anniversary. “Victoria essentially funded the foundation for its first 17 years,” Ravenhill said. “It only seems right and natural to come back to Victoria for a celebration.” The full extent of the Walkers’ 10-year commitment were announced today, after the News’ deadline, but it was also confirmed that the partnership will be tied into the hotel’s dinner theatre. It’s an opportunity to give back to the community, Walker said before the announcement. “We’ve met many of the families that have been helped by the Foster Foundation, and these are some of the stories that we’re going to begin telling in great detail (today).”

Triathletes lead Team B.C. at Western Games

Mavs headed to 2012 Nationals Mavericks all-stars sweep provincials Travis Paterson News staff

Studded with former collegiate and pro players, the Victoria Mavericks all-star baseball team swept its way to a B.C. championship in Kelowna. Pitcher Keith Shaw threw six shutout innings in the final game, a 1-0 win over the Coquitlam Angels. Matt Atkinson relieved Shaw in the seventh inning for the save and Lanny Burrows scored the game’s only run. The win qualifies the Mavericks for next summer’s Canadian National Championship in Prince George. Victoria last won the men’s national championship in 2008 in Brandon, Man. General manager Patrick Nahirney

credited his team’s early leads as a key role throughout the provincials. “(Our) pitching staff and defence were impeccable, with two starters logging shutout wins, and the entire pitching staff allowing only five runs in five games. The team never trailed,” he said. Centrefielder Kyle Pockett was awarded tournament MVP for hitting 10-for-15 in the leadoff spot. The tourney ran July 29 to Aug. 1. Next up for the all-star squad is the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament on Labour Day weekend, Aug. 31 to Sept 5. The Grand Forks field includes 12 teams, one from Australia, with a money prize to the winner. The players chosen to the Mavericks all-star squad come from the six-team Mavericks men’s league that plays out of Lambrick Park in Gordon Head. This year’s Mavericks season is nearing its end with playoffs starting Saturday (Aug. 13).

Mavericks provincial recap Game 1: Shaun Loglisci throws complete game, 4-0 shutout against the Trail Orioles. Kyle Pockett bats 3-for-3 with a walk. Game 2: Former Victoria Seals pitcher Graham Campbell throws another complete game, 3-1 over the reigning national champion Burnaby Bulldogs. Game 3: Matt Atkinson throws the team’s third-straight complete game, a 7-2 win over the Kamloops Sun Devils. Sean Murphy hits a three-run home run. Game 4: Jesse Dill pitches the Mavericks to a 6-2 playoff win over the Coquitlam Angels, clinching the Mavericks’ spot in the final. Game 5: Mavericks defeat Angels again, 1-0, after Angels win an extra playoff game to get to final. - with files from Shelley Lipke

Olympian wins prize at Sooke Tri

Langley ends Shamrocks’ season

Olympic triathlete Brent McMahon won a well-deserved $15,000 purse of cash and prizes as the first man to cross the line of the Olympic distance (1.5 kilometre swim, 40 km bike, 10 km run) Subaru Sooke Triathlon on Sunday. Colorado resident Amanda Stevens took the women’s prize, finishing 19 minutes back of Victoria-based McMahon. The race drew 40 pro triathletes representing Canada, U.S., Mexico, and Australia, many of them competing in The Chase, a non-drafting Olympic distance event where the women are given a 15 minute headstart on the men. Up-and-comer Alison Hooper of Sooke did well on her home turf, finishing 22nd overall, just 36 seconds back of Sidney’s Lucy Smith in 20th. American Jonathan Shearon won the half Iron event (1.9 km swim, 90 km bike, 20 km run) in four hours, 17 minutes, with Victoria’s Adrian Walton the top local in third at 4:37:21. The race day also featured a sprint category at half of the Olympic distance in which three under-19 athletes from Victoria finished in the top four. Jericho O’Connell finished the sprint in first 1:04:12, with Chris Sundby third and Trevor Marc fourth, one second apart at 1:09:25 and 1:09:26.

Two regular season ties were as close as the Victoria Shamrocks could get to defeating the Langley Thunder in Western Lacrosse Association play this year. On Monday night the Thunder elminated the Shamrocks 13-8 in Langley, completing a fourgame sweep of the WLA best-ofseven semifinal series. The Shamrocks were seeded second, four points ahead of the third-place Thunder. But Langley was undefeated (1-0-2) against Victoria during the regular season. In Monday’s deciding game, the teams traded goals for the first 50 minutes, with neither side able to lead by more than one. But after Victoria evened the score at 7, the Thunder took control with four unanswered goals.

Victoria’s Hillary Wille picked up three gold medals leading a group of South Island triathletes to near domination of three triathlon events at the Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops last week. Wille, a Claremont secondary grad, and Oak Bay High’s Lehm Maguire, won the women’s and men’s gold in the individual triathlon on the first day of the Games, Saturday, Aug. 6. Wille’s medal was also the first gold of the Summer Games, which bring together 2,300 athletes from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and the Yukon Territory. Fellow Victoria triathletes Megan Kinghorn won the women’s bronze and Connor Foreman won the men’s silver. “I was a swimmer before I was a triathlete so I knew I’d be strong in the swim,” said Wille, who was first out of the water. I had a bit of a slow transition but I made up for it on the hills.” Wille’s winning time on the hilly course was 1:07.31. Maguire’s was 1:01:56. On Tuesday Wille and Kinghorn joined Maya Munzar of Cobble Hill in winning the women’s team event while Maguire and Foreman joined Megan’s brother Jordan Kinghorn in winning gold in the men’s team event. Wille Kinghorn and Munzar won gold again on Wednesday, this time in the individual relay with Munzar swimming, Wille biking and Kinghorn running. Foreman (swim), Jordan Kinghorn (bike) and Maguire won silver in the men’s individual relay behind Manitoba.

Tracking UVic gold On the track, University of Victoria Vikes athlete Stephanie Trenholm set a Western Canada Summer Games record in the 1,500 metre run with a time of 4:27.86. Fellow Vike Brittany Therrien won bronze. Brittany’s brother Cody, who will suit up for the Vikes this fall, won silver in the men’s 1,500 m. Mount Douglas grad and UVic Vike Hannah Swift pole vaulted to 3.3 metres for sixth while Oak Bay High’s Kira Craig settled for ninth at 3.1 metres, below her personal best of 3.5. A pair of Vikes were strong in the strategicminded 800 m race on Tuesday as Reynolds grad and Vikes athlete John Pratt won gold by outracing White Rock’s Sean Keane. The latter held the lead for much of the race. Pratt finished in one minute, 52.83 seconds, just ahead of another Vike, Thomas Riva who placed third.

Gorge paddler ahead of pack Another Claremont grad, canoe and kayak racer David Nykl, seemingly won medals at will. By Wednesday he had a medal count of five. Nykl started his run on Sunday winning silver as with the four-man (K4) team in the 1,000 m. On Monday he won bronze on his own in the solo K1 500 m and paired with Nicholas Foellmer of West Vancouver to win bronze in the K2 500 m. On Tuesday Nykl was at it again, winning silver in the K1 2,000 m and silver in the K2 2,000 m with Del Muench from Langley. The Games wrap up on Aug. 14.

Riding for a cause Kristen Douglas Black Press


fter losing his mom to cancer at the age of 16, Campbell River’s Shawn Hall knew he wanted to do something to help others fight the disease. When the opportunity to ride in the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock came along, he jumped at the chance. “I’ve always wanted to do something for a worthy cause, especially Special cancer,” said feature Hall, a firefighter and an auxiliary Black Press police officer newspapers on with the Vancouver Island Campbell River will publish this RCMP. “It’s special feature something I don’t page spotlighting wish on any kid. police officers I saw the tour as taking part an opportunity in this year’s to help.” Canadian Cancer Although Society his cycling Cops for Cancer experience was Tour de Rock. limited, Hall said other police officers recognized the tour as something he would enjoy and be successful at. “Working up at the detachment, a couple of officers said, ‘Hey Shawn, you’d be good at that,’” Hall said. “It was definitely something I wanted to do, but I didn’t know if I was in good enough shape. I wasn’t too sure.” Before signing up for the tour, Hall occasionally would take his road bike for a spin, but nothing too serious. He has, however, cycled competitively on two different occasions. Twice he took part in the Comox Valley’s Royal LePage Snow to Surf Adventure Relay which combines skiing, running,

Campbell River firefighter and auxiliary RCMP officer Shawn Hall will ride the length of Vancouver Island in the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock to raise money for pediatric cancer research. mountain biking, kayaking, road cycling and canoeing. To gear up for the much longer, 1,000-kilometre Tour de Rock, which takes cyclists from one end of the Island to the other, Hall has been cycling three days a week. He and a team of police

officers and media personalities who represent the north half of the Island, ride together to build up their strength and endurance. On Tuesdays the group focuses on hill riding, typically 30 to 40 kilometres at a time, while Thursday night is reserved

for practising speed, again usually a 30- to 40-kilometre ride. Sundays are when the group does a more relaxing, but longer ride. Those trips tend to be around 100 kilometres. As the northern most member of the team, Hall typically has to drive down to either the Comox Valley, Parksville or Nanaimo for each ride. “It’s a lot of travel, definitely the whole summer it’s been a big commitment between training and fundraising, but it’s a good cause,” Hall said. So far, fundraisers have included a golf tournament at Storey’s Creek, bagging groceries at Thrifty Foods and cycling for about an hour on a stationary bicycle during Canada Day festivities. Hall plans to hold a few car washes and barbecues later this summer, as well as a possible wine tasting in the fall. The highlight of the journey so far for Hall was a recent trip to Camp Goodtimes on the Lower Mainland, a week-long summer camp for kids and teens battling cancer and their families. “We hung out with the kids and did a casino night with them,” Hall said. “We each took a game station and the kids went through and used fake money and they had a great time. We even had a pay-itforward booth where the kids could donate the money they had won to a charity.” Hall said thinking of those kids, and others who are battling cancer, will be what helps him push through the gruelling 14-day ride this fall. “It’s a long time to be on a bike, but then it’s not so bad when you think of why you’re riding and you just push through the pain because you know there’s kids going through worse than you.”


Campbell River Mountie gears up to take on cancer and Tour de Rock
