Meanwhile, the counterweight will be temporarily supported in place while an excavator equipped with a hoe ram breaks it up into smaller pieces. These pieces will then be hauled away in gravel trucks over several days. “We take the material and process it into aggregate,” said Wayne Dalby, general manager for Ralmax Contracting. “We’d probably use it ourselves … for road building mainly.” Ralmax, located on the Inner Harbour, will also process the steel trestle, weighing approximately 200 tonnes. “We’ll use excavators equipped with shears on it to chop the bridge into fourfoot pieces and we’ll barge it to a steel mill,” Dalby said. The city advises to expect minimal delays to traffic, with preriodic short-term road closures from Feb. 14 to 16. Marine traffic will be closed for three days.

Preparatory work at the Johnson Street Rail Bridge is ramping up, signaling its impending demolition. Demolition was expected to start Feb. 15, but the three-week project has been delayed by about a week. The contractor needs more time to secure the 500-tonne concrete counterweight. Disconnecting the counterweight from the trestle bridge is the first step in the demolition project, said Andrew Purdy, CEO of Ruskin Construction, the contractor chosen to lead the project. Once separated, both pieces get dealt with simultaneously. The trestle will be strengthened with steel bracing at key points before it can be lifted by a 600-tonne crane. “The joints require to be strengthened to assure us it can withstand its own weight,” said Purdy. “We don’t know what the (potential) failure would be, but we’re not going to

New Muslim mosque built for new generations, growing community Islam leaders break ground in Victoria ahead of 10-month construction project

space for men and women, an activity room and a kitchen when its doors open at the end of October. Construction costs are estimated at $1.56 million, according to the Victoria branch of the B.C. Muslim Association’s project website. “The community is growing and that’s why we need a bigger space,” said Villalpando’s husband, Ali Hamado, Victoria branch treasurer. The new mosque will be four times larger and accommodate 160 people for daily prayers. “We are building it for our future generation, to be able to provide services for our Muslim community and the non-Muslim community as well,” said Hamado. “It will be a learning centre for those who would like to learn more about Islam.” While other faiths are struggling to fill the pews of their churches, Greater Victoria’s Muslim community is booming. That is largely due to the 400 international Muslim students who come from around the world to attend post-secondary schools in the region, Hamado said. “Victoria attracts many people for many reasons - the weather, the safety and the friendliness,” he said. For details on the reconstruction project, please visit www.

Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin strides across the yard, gently takes the hand of little Bayan Hamado and guides her over to a group of Muslim men who are happily turning sod. “It’s for them, right?” Fortin says of the youngest Muslim children who are the inspiration behind a new Muslim mosque that will be built on Quadra Street in Victoria, across from the Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre. Nearby, Bayan’s mother, Leticia Villalpando, proudly watches her four-year-old grasp a shovel during Friday’s ground-breaking ceremony, attended by more than 70 Muslims. “It’s so exciting,” the Victoria resident said. “I can’t believe it’s happening.” Many of the 1,200 to 1,500 Muslims in the Capital Region have been attending prayer services at two adjacent homes the Muslim community purchased in 1996, at 2216 and 2218 Quadra St. Until last week, women and children attended lectures and prayer services in one house, while next door men prayed and attended classes and other activities at the mosque, which accommodated just 40 people. For that reason, space for prayers is rented at the University of Victoria and Gordon Head Recreation Centre. “You always see the churches, the synagogues,” Villalpando said. “For us it’s always (been) the

Trial to begin for attempted murder of Victoria cop Erin McCracken News staff

The man accused of trying to kill a female Victoria police officer will soon get his day in court. Guy Hervé Seguin will be tried by judge and jury in B.C. Supreme Court in Victoria, beginning Monday (Feb. 13). He faces one charge of attempted murder. Const. Lane Douglas-Hunt, then 24, was investigating a minor theft at a Douglas Street 7-Eleven food store on Jan. 17, 2011. She held the door open for a man, who then allegedly lashed out at her with a knife. Her neck and both hands were cut as she tried to block the blade. A scuffle ensued and she was pinned to the ground. A passing motorist jumped out of his car and raced to help Douglas-Hunt, and another passerby also took action. Seguin, then 57 years old, was arrested at the scene and cuffed by a Good Samaritan. Police said Seguin was known to them and had a history of violence. Douglas-Hunt not only returned to her regular police duties within months of the attack, she took top honours as the Toughest Competitor Alive last August at the World Police and Fire Games in New York City. The patrol officer won gold in the women’s 18to 29-year-old open division, in which competitors were required to tackle eight challenges in one day, from a cross-country run to a rope climb.

Watch the rail bridge come down Continued from Page A1

A handful of engineering classes, some postsecondary instructors, and even a Grade 3 class are keen to get a front row seat to the action. Over the next few weeks, the rail bridge is coming down – and students and teachers are eager to learn from the experience. Victoria’s director of communication, Katie Josephson, confirms she’s received several requests. Andrew Purdy, CEO of Ruskin Construction, said people are welcome to watch, as long as they are in the safe zone. “We just don’t want to have any conflict with our men and our communications and our equipment,” he said. “We want to make sure that our people aren’t distracted with any kind of noise … so we can focus on the work at hand. It is very, very sensitive work and very heavy weights, but if we’re able to follow our procedures as we have them planned for, we should have no issues.” For those stuck at work with no time to stand around and watch the action, have no fear. Watch it all unfold on the city’s webcam, which refreshes a still image of the bridge every 15 minutes. Check it out at www.johnsonstreetbridge. com.

Drug may be deadly New director for Our Place Only a matter of time before Victoria drug users fall sick:police Erin McCracken News staff

Ecstasy tainted with a deadly chemical that has caused the deaths of two people on the Island, three on the Lower Mainland and many more in Calgary is likely already in Victoria, says a Victoria plainclothes police officer. “If they aren’t (here), they’re likely on their way,” said Const. Harvey Stevenson with the Victoria Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit. He has not yet heard of any cases in which a user has become gravely ill after taking the bad drug in Victoria. But it could be only a matter of time before someone buys ecstasy pills spiked with paramethoxymethamphetamine, or PMMA, and becomes sick or dies. Typically, ecstasy is made with methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA. “I think it’s imminent,” he said. The B.C. Coroners Service confirmed on Jan. 16 that PMMA has been linked to five ecstasy-related deaths in the province within the past six months. “If it’s in Abbotsford where people have overdosed and died – that is an hour-and-a-half ferry ride. If it’s in Calgary where people have overdosed and died, that’s an hour flight,” Stevenson said.

“There’s no reason why it wouldn’t be here. I would be shocked if it wasn’t here.” A 19-year-old man went into convulsions after taking ecstasy at a party in Saanichton on Jan. 27. Central Saanich police say the teen suffered an overdose and that his life was likely saved by his friends who called 911. In the wake of the near fatality, Central Saanich Police and the Sidney North Saanich RCMP issued a joint warning about the risks of ecstasy. Police don’t yet know whether the young man’s condition was caused by PMMA. Ecstasy is readily available for purchase in Victoria, particularly at parties, raves and in dance clubs, and is most popular among younger adults, said Stevenson. Some people who regularly take ecstasy may not be aware the pills they are ingesting could be made with PMMA rather than MDMA, which have similar effects. “It’s usually when you’re in crisis mode that you will know the difference,” Stevenson said. -with files from Erin Cardone

Cadet instructor accused of assault Incidents allegedly happened at Saanich armoury and Vernon camp Erin McCracken News staff

An army cadet instructor faces charges of sexually assaulting and sexually exploiting two teen cadets in Saanich and Vernon. Capt. Daniel Moriarity is accused of sexually assaulting a male cadet and having an “inappropriate relationship” with a female cadet, both of whom are teenagers, said Capt. Karina Holder, spokesperson for the Ottawa-based Canadian Forces Military Police Group. The incidents are alleged to have occurred between 2008 and 2011 at the Lt.-Gen. E.C. Ashton Armoury in Saanich and the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. The allegations were reported to military police in Esquimalt last summer by the cadets’ superior officers. At the time, Moriarity was deputy commanding officer of 3005 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, based at the armoury.

“The minute these allegations did come to light, he had no more contact with cadets,” said Holder. Military police from the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service then took over the case. The service investigates serious and sensitive matters involving National Defence and Canadian Forces personnel and property. Moriarity was arrested later that summer, released and ordered to abide by numerous conditions that prevent him from having any contact with cadets or attend any cadet functions. He was formally charged on Feb. 2 with two counts of sexual exploitation and one count of sexual assault, both under the National Defence Act and the Criminal Code of Canada, as well as one count of behaving in a disgraceful manner under the National Defence Act. Military police do not anticipate there are other victims, Holder said.

Moriarity, described by military police as “a younger officer,” became a cadet instructor in 2006. His current location is not being disclosed. He will face a military court martial, which has not yet been scheduled. Holder said she does not know if Moriarity worked in a cadet leadership position at another cadet cadre prior to working at the Saanich armoury and the Vernon summer camp. “There’s stringent checks, there’s police record checks, vulnerable-sector screening checks that they go through,” Holder said. Cadets receive harassment and abuse training from a peer or adult instructor, and are informed on what to do and how to report incidents, she said. “Charges like this are exceedingly rare,” said Holder. “Absolutely no one likes to think that such incidents could occur. “However, at least if they did occur, the cadet organization and the military police dealt with (the incidents) swiftly and appropriately. That’s comforting.”

Langford’s astounding population growth wasn’t enough to bring the wider region’s growth in line with that of the province or the country. On Tuesday, Statistics Canada released the first of many findings from the 2011 Census. Canada boasted a population growth of 5.9 per cent since the last census in 2006; compare that to B.C., at 7.0 per cent, and metropolitan Victoria at 4.4 per cent. Langford led the region’s growth with an increase of 30 per cent, followed by Sooke, Colwood and View Royal. Within the core, Victoria led population growth at 2.5 per cent.

The Bra Lady Is Coming to Size You Up

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in. Chapman is coming to VICTORIA

ON MONDAY & TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20 & 21 to outfit you with

the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly.





















“Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,â€? Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.â€? Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: • Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably? • Does your bust line “bounceâ€? when you walk while wearing your “everydayâ€? bra? • Do you overflow the cup of your bra? • Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? • Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to give you added support? • Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.

YOU’VE TRIED All ThE REST - NOw TRY ThE BEST • No uNderwires • No elastic straps • No straps falliNg off shoulders • No ridiNg up iN the back

You can sign up for Chapman’s bra clinic by calling

2012 Residential Branch Chipping Program The City of Victoria’s Residential Branch Chipping program provides residents with an opportunity to remove large tree branches from their yard.

Monday, February 13, 2012 at 7a.m. is the deadline for Victoria residents to have their large tree branches at the curb for chipping. NEW Tree branches must be 5 centimetres (2 inches) or more in diameter and longer than 1.2 metres (4 feet) in length for chipping at the curb.

Small tree branches, shrubs, leaves and plants jam chipping machines and are a safety concern for crews. Material that cannot be chipped at the curb is left behind for residents to remove.

5 cm / 2" (minimum)

Tips: • Branches are to be loosely stacked into one pile with their cut ends together. • Branches should not be placed in bags, boxes, or tied with string or wire. • Only large tree branches, please. Victoria residents can drop off their leaf and garden waste for free year-round at the City of Victoria Public Works Yard, 417 Garbally Road, Saturdays, from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. Proof of residency is required in the form of a valid driver’s licence.

Businesses must be kept in loop A lot of thought went into how the longterm closure of Craigflower Bridge would affect everything from schoolkids to salmon. However, planners were much less mindful in their treatment of a segment especially sensitive to upheaval these days. Small business owners who count on access to their shops for customers seem to have been left out of most discussions around replacing the bridge. Traffic, it is said, flows like water through a city’s streets. Motorists will find the quickest way to get where they need to go. When one route closes, formerly less-popular roads will attract a trickle of traffic before becoming a new tributary until the blockage is removed. Even then, vehicles will stick to the paths they know unless another route proves itself to be more efficient. Planners take this into consideration when contemplating changes to traffic patterns. Whether the disruption is caused by road maintenance or more significant upgrades, such as a new bridge, care is taken to try and ease the pain for the public. In the case of the Craigflower Bridge, the municipalities it connects – Saanich and View Royal – are primarily looking for options to allow pedestrians and cyclists to still be able to cross that stretch of the Gorge waterway. Motorists, who arguably account for the majority of people shopping at Admirals Walk, will have to journey an extra four kilometres to get across. We hope people will think beyond their immediate circumstance and make a choice to stay loyal to those affected businesses that have earned their trust. But that’s a lot to ask. A better solution would have been for municipal planners to give the area’s economic ecosystem the same consideration as the salmon and schoolkids. More information much earlier in the process would have gone a long way to helping business owners prepare for the tough times they’re sure to face. What do you think?

UVic and UBC are also immune, because of their varsity status. It means James Bay can throw national scrum half Sean White and fly half Connor Braid into the lineup at any time. And when national sevens captain Phil Mack finishes his time at UVic, he too will be free to play for James Bay. The same goes for the Castaway-Wanderers, with Michael Fuailefau and Beau Parker. The rule does slow graduating Vikes with national team status from jumping ship to Island clubs, however. National prop Andrew Tiedeman and his Vikes front row mate Toby Peyton came to the Castaway-Wanderers from UVic this year. Tiedeman is CW’s new captain, while Peyton hasn’t played in the Premier League yet this year. One would expect Velox to get a boost sooner than later, and hopefully it means their return to the Premier League next year. But that’s still only a few players. Perhaps the answer lies in a return of the Pacific Pride under-23 program, which was also part of the Premier League. Whatever the answer, there’s got to be some way to see more of Canada’s rugby team in Victoria besides at practice, or on the Premier League sidelines.

Lessons of desecration should be communication Re: Religion at fault for persecution of the Jews (Letters, Jan. 20). It would be a denial of history to claim that Christian teachings played no role in the development of the homicidal anti-Semitism that claimed the lives of six million Jewish men, women and children during the Holocaust. But history need not chain us. The lessons of the Holocaust impelled Christian leaders to meditation and introspection. Documents such as Bearing

Faithful Witness and Nostra Aetate (In Our Age) – which extended the hand of friendship from the United Church of Canada and the Roman Catholic Church respectively – represent a sincere effort to achieve reconciliation. The Jewish community itself has not been inactive in this regard, and offered Dabru Emet (Speak Truth) as a consideration of the relationship between Christianity and Judaism. These documents do not represent

Readers respond: B.C. Ferries should be run as a business by business people B.C. Ferries has been a product of its own demise largely due to the fact that it is run by the provincial government. In my opinion it should be sold to a private group of investors and run like a business. Having the option of reaching into the pocket of the taxpayer is one that is too tempting and is never going to be a solution to a failing business. By having B.C. Ferries run by a private company, the market will dictate what fares should be and the salaries that should be paid. B.C. Ferries’ record speaks for itself. It has been one problem after another and it appears as though the public cannot wait for some form of failure from the company. We can all think of multiple examples of how this “business” has acted in a manner that we strongly disagree with. So, let the government govern and businessmen run business because history shows you can’t do both. Barrett Smith Saanich

Raising OAS eligibility brings too many problems As an adult educator, I am surprised that there has been little or no discussion of cognitive and physical decline of adults due to normal, healthy aging and the impact of raising the age of OAS eligibility. For example, do we really want high school teachers to teach until age 67 – especially when there are growing numbers of unemployed younger teachers? Do we want 67-year-old propane truck or bus drivers on the road when they have declining coordination and reaction times? Occupations such as mining or nursing – or a host of other occupations that involve physical strength – surely should not require employees to work two additional years before receiving OAS. Cognitive and physical decline with aging is a reality. Research has shown that the decline is gradual, but inevitable. What evidence exists that the federal government has taken such research into consideration as they increase the age of eligibility? Finally, by 2030, when the baby boom bulge has passed, the percentage of GDP expended

the last word in dialogue. Indeed they are barely the first words in a conversation that is long overdue.

B.C.Ferries, OAS, oil by the existing pension schemes will decline – a demographic fact the Tories somehow ignore. I guess it gets in the way of their current promotion of an expensive, corporate private model rather than a more cost-efficient expanded CPP model. Some of us may choose to continue working full or part time, but surely one should have a choice to retire at an age when one still has one’s health and not be penalized for retiring before the Tory-imposed age of 67. No wonder the Tories did not raise the issue during the last federal election. Ron Faris Victoria

It’s time to think outside the proposed Northern Pipeline The two main reasons for the proposed Northern Pipeline are to meet the ever-increasing removal of bitumen from the tar sands and to send the stuff to Asian markets. If we get beyond our need for instant gratification, plan for the longer term and heaven forbid, reduce bitumen extraction instead, not only will we not need the pipeline, but the value of the bitumen will increase over time because of the world’s scarcity of oil. In choosing to live with less oil, we will be motivated/forced to develop and employ renewable energy. As an added benefit, environmental degradation will be slowed. And even if there’s not a consensus regarding mankind’s influence on climate change, it’s simply immoral to burn any more fossil fuel than we have to. Secondly, we should keep our oil for ourselves, which would enable us to stop the ridiculous policy of importing oil in Eastern Canada. Any leftovers should be transported in existing pipelines to markets in the U.S. Thirdly, there is so much money in oil that we should: 1. Reduce the subsidies to the oil companies and direct them instead towards the development of renewables, and 2. Tax the oil companies like they do in Norway: $550 billion and counting in Norway’s rainy day fund. Our politicians need to man up and stop kissing Big Oil butt. It’s Canadians who own this black gold and Big Oil has very few other options. Dave Secco Oak Bay

Mio Takahashi as Sasaki, left, and Yukiko Kobayshi as Buddy star in One Thousand Cranes.

The legend of cranes One Thousand Cranes, a beautifully crafted show from Tokyo, puts a human face to nuclear fallout. A young Japanese girl is diagnosed with leukemia after Hiroshima. Determined to live, she folds origami cranes, which are a symbol of hope. Across the Pacific in Canada, a young boy believes that there’s nothing he can do to stop an inevitable nuclear war. The show is based on the true story of Sasaki Sadako, a young girl who discovered that she had radiationinduced leukemia nine years after the bombing of Hiroshima. According to ancient Japanese legend, anyone who folds 1,000 origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Sadako died in 1955 and there is now

a statue dedicated to her at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial in Japan. The performance, by Japanese theatre company Bunkaza, weaves together these stories looking at the implications of nuclear war. The play is performed in Japanese with English surtitles and is suitable for children aged 12 and up. One Thousand Cranes is part of Intrepid Theatre’s 2012 season of international touring theatre, which includes shows from Quebec, Belgium and Japan. One Thousand Cranes is at the Metro Studio, Feb. 16 and 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18/$23/$31. For more information go to

He’s not a pugilistic player but he’s a battler and feisty player.” The Shamrocks picked up a pair of Claremont graduates in the fourth round who went elsewhere for junior-A, Asahel Beaudet from Nanaimo and Steve Higgs from the Delta Islanders. Late in the draft, Victoria products Jake Ryan and Liam Kelly were taken. The Rocks’ last pick was Jr. Shamrocks defender of the year in 2011, Austin Powell, who hails from San Diego and plays NCAA lacrosse with Leung for Bellarmine University in Kentucky. Nanaimo selected Victoria’s Tyler Matheson in the second round. The Jr. Shamrocks grad gets a chance to reunite with Bremner. The two were once junior-A hockey teammates with the Victoria Grizzlies.

Love that works He is currently the executive officer of supply ship HMCS Protecteur, while Filion works on dry land as a marine systems engineer at the Fleet Maintenance Facility. The View Royal couple regularly go on dates or enjoy a bike ride and breakfast on a Sunday morning, in between raising a baby and a toddler. “We’ll use the time that we’ve got,” Farrugia said. Like every couple “... we have our ups and downs, but we navigate through it,” Filion said smiling. Despite the tumult that comes with military moves – they’re likely relocating to Ottawa this summer – they see it as a relationship-building exercise. “It always keeps things exciting,” Farrugia said. “We love having projects and dreaming,” Filion added. For Cmdr. Todd Bonnar, and his wife Petty Officer 2nd Class Erin Bonnar, their relationship has also been intertwined with military life from the start. The Langford couple met in 1996 through mutual military friends. They became engaged on the deck of a CFB Esquimalt warship and had a military wedding in 2000. Over the years, they have become adept at keeping their romance alive amidst raising two young daughters, moving six times since 1998 and being apart for long and short deployments. Today, Todd is commanding officer of Protecteur, while Erin is fleet logistics budget manager. They agree that having a life partner who also wears a military uniform helps foster

understanding about the demands of the job. “I don’t think a civilian couple would handle, ‘Hey, I’m posted to Afghanistan for a year (with two weeks’ notice),’ very well,” said Todd, who knows military couples that have been through that experience. “So it’s all about knowing that things change quickly in the military.” Time apart, though sometimes stressful, can even help the relationship. “That’s what keeps it alive,” Erin quipped. “Absence makes the heart grow fonder,” Todd added with a smile. “You’re more appreciative when you come back.”
