Call it a test run. A new plan for downtown Victoria is meandering its way through city hall, paving the way for a different approach to city planning at the micro level. Neighbourhood plans are decades old in many cases, and change is on its way to a street near you. Don’t expect a simple update to outdated plans, however. OURH B It’s about being strategic, said senior planner H Cameron Scott. “Originally we had gone forward with this idea of planning neighbourhoods, one by one, as we had done historically,” Scott said. AT E Public feedback, however, called for a IS S U different approach. “What people said was to strategically A multi-part series examining Victoria’s focus on village areas, corridors and other parts of the city that don’t necessary follow neighbourhoods, asking what defines neighbourhood boundaries,” he explained.

The downtown core area plan, for instance, encompasses all of the downtown, Harris Green, the southern portion of North Park and Burnside Gorge, and smaller sections of James Bay and Fairfield.

The interests of residents, businesspeople and commuters intersect – and sometimes collide – as our neighbourhoods grow. Left, city councillor and downtown shop owner Philippe Lucas navigates the streets where City Hall meets the Douglas corridor.

Tougher impaired rules here to stay Jeff Nagel Black Press

The province won’t soften its 10-month-old roadside administrative penalties for impaired driving, citing a 50-per-cent drop in drunk driving deaths since the rules took effect. Nor will it embark on a public information campaign previously pledged to help revelers decide how much they can drink before they might exceed the lower blood-alcohol limit of 0.05 if caught behind the wheel. Preliminary numbers show 30 deaths in alcohol-related crashes in the first seven months of the new regulations, down from an average of 61 fatalities in the same October-to-April period of the previous five years. Police credit the new regulations – with the threat of stiff fines and car impoundments – for the improved driving safety record. Police can now impose an immediate penalty on any driver who blows in the “warn” range between 0.05 and 0.08. Instead of issuing a 24-hour suspension or a formal impaired charge, police can impose a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impound the vehicle for 30 days, with the owner on the hook for towing and storage. Former Public Safety Minister Rich Coleman had promised a review of the new rules late last year after the bar and restaurant industry com-

plained of lost business because patrons were drinking less. He had indicated that might lead to an appeal period where drivers caught by police could lodge challenges before the penalties are applied. But no such legislation was tabled this spring. B.C. Restaurant and Foodservice Association president Ian Tostenson said his members now accept that the rules are here to stay. “When the theme of Families First came through from the premier, it was pretty obvious no one in their right mind was going to say families are important – and by the way, we’re going to loosen up on the impaired driving penalties,” he said. Business was down much more steeply in the immediate months after the change, he said. Now, the worst-hit businesses are down perhaps 10 to 12 per cent from before the change, possibly as patrons understand the rules and make alternate transportation arrangements. He said it’s also difficult to say how much of the losses stem not from the drunk driving penalties but from consumers’ reluctance to spend due to the sluggish economy or the imposition of the harmonized sales tax. editor@vicnews.com PLEASE SEE: Our View, Page A10

Friends tackle earthquake relief with sumo Erin McCracken News staff

Manami Kamijo’s wedding was more bittersweet than celebratory. Missing from the James Bay resident’s guest list were two best friends who chose to remain close to their home in Japan in the aftermath of a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and killer tsunami on March 11. Given that communications following the catastrophe were so faulty, “it made everyone more scared about the earthquake,” Kamijo said. The decimation of entire communities on the island nation covered media headlines for weeks, but the stories have since faded from the spotlight. “I kind of feel everyone is forgetting this,” Kamijo said, adding that three months later her homeland

Crack-cooking operation busted in James Bay Four cooks arrested in two-month investigation Erin Cardone News staff

Behind the walls of an apartment on sleepy Simcoe Street, a dirty business operated. While seniors strolled by on the sidewalks out front, four people worked a crack-making cookhouse, according to Victoria police. “These guys (were) supplying to mid-level drug dealers,” said Const. Mike Russell. “They’d take that powder cocaine – that’s how it comes to B.C. here. It comes to a cook house and they convert it into something that can be smoked, rock or crack. Once they do that, it’s sold to (dealers).” For two months, Victoria police officers watched the apartment and gathered intelligence. On July 7, armed with search warrants, they entered the apartment and found evidence of a cook house: measuring cups, scales and baking powder. Also inside were two large rocks of crack, weighing about 60 grams each, plus more than a half-kilogram of powder cocaine, and a small amount of marijuana.

Altogether, the drugs are estimated to be worth $30,000 on the street – and about double that amount when broken up and sold to consumers. At the apartment, a 37-year-old Victoria man and a 37-year-old Langford woman were arrested. “This is a large amount of drugs, certainly not the largest we’ve seen, but it’s going to make a dent in the local market,” said Russell. The quiet area of James Bay was never at risk

On crack and gold Crack sells for about the same price as gold. Both commodities trade at about $1,500 per ounce. “It’s quite remarkable,” said Sgt. Conor King, VicPD’s drug expert with the department’s focused enforcement team. He added the prices of both have steadily risen in recent years. The price of cocaine in powder or crack form depends on supply and demand, as well as conditions in supply countries, such as some South American regions and Mexico. The current war on drugs in that country is toying with prices.

– the cooks likely did most of their transactions away from the property and cooking crack is benign. When powder cocaine is mixed with baking soda and microwaved, it becomes crack. As part of their investigation, police officers also had a search warrant on a Langford house. VicPD officers worked with RCMP to raid that house, although police refused to disclose the location to protect the identity of the suspects until charges have been approved. Inside the house, investigators discovered $25,000 in cash – the house acted as a store room for the cook-and-sell operation. Three vehicles found at that address were seized and could be transferred to B.C. Civil Forfeiture where they would be auctioned as revenue for the province. Two other suspects were arrested in a “highrisk takedown” on the Royal Oak offramp to the Pat Bay Highway. Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team officers identified a vehicle believed to be part of the cook operation and pulled it over. They arrested a 27-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman, both from Langford. Each of the suspects could be charged with possession of drugs and possession for the purpose of trafficking. They have all been released on promises to appear in court. ecardone@vicnews.com

Crime in Victoria and Esquimalt is down eight per cent overall between January and May 2011, compared to the same period last year. The number of crimes against people, crimes against property and traffic offences were all down from last year, though other types of offences increased, such as indecent acts, which doubled because of reports of a man masturbating at bus stops. Drug offences are also up from last year, though Insp. Clark Russell attributed the increase to more police-initated drug busts.

Sweet treats to subdue violence?

Police and public figures tried a new tact to quell violence in Victoria on Canada Day: lollipops. City Coun. Charlayne Thornton-Joe said she and police officers handed out about 11,000 red lollipops on July 1 after she heard about U.K.-based studies that showed the act might be effective. She told the Victoria police board she walked into tense situations that diffused immediately when candy appeared.

Understaffed, under budget

Uncertainty about whether Esquimalt will continue to receive its policing from VicPD is keeping the department understaffed – and under budget. Financial controller Scott Seivewright said the budget will likely see an operating surplus of $440,000 this year, because VicPD has put off hiring four new members until that uncertainty is resolved.

Village plan set for referendum Ballot question will ask residents to OK changes to official community plan Erin McCracken News staff

In addition to voting for the township’s next mayor and council this fall, Esquimalt residents will get to answer a nonbinding referendum question on their elec-

tion ballots about the future of the Esquimalt Village Plan. “I think at a referendum you get a better cross-section (of people), albeit it’s not the greatest, but it’s better than what we get at public hearings,� said

Coun. Bruce McIldoon at a committee-of-thewhole meeting Monday night. The ballot question will ask residents to vote yes or no to allowing the Township to adopt changes to the official community plan and zoning bylaws that would pave the way for the development of phase one of the Esquimalt Village Plan.

comes after the village plan stalled after drawing the ire of residents unhappy at living in what they say could be the shadow of an eight-storey residentialcommercial tower and a 12-storey condominium in Municipal Square. Mayor Barb Desjardins and Coun. Lynda Hundleby opposed holding a referendum. Coun. Don Linge was absent from the meeting. “I’m actually uncomfortable with the idea of having a referendum, partly because I don’t think it gives us the full information that we’re looking for,� Hundleby said. “I know it gives us a hint or a flavour, but what does it really mean in terms of the hint?� The village plan has been in the works for the past five years, and there were several opportunities along the

way for residents to provide input, said Desjardins. “This may suggest to them that we negate all of that input, that we have not heard them, that their input over the last five years doesn’t mean enough to us to be able to make a decision, and that really bothers me,� Desjardins said. According to township staff, the referendum won’t mean additional expense for taxpayers since it will coincide with a municipal general election on Nov. 19. A second public hearing on the village plan will be held next spring. Workers are now in the process of dismantling the old public works yard and former municipal hall, where the proposed development could be built. emccracken@vicnews.com

Think tank sets sights on hospitals Natalie North News staff

Acute stroke patients in Greater Victoria hospitals were at a higher risk of mortality than those treated elsewhere in B.C. in 2008-09. Heart failure patients at Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals, however, were more likely to live. The Fraser Institute released its British Columbia Hospital Report Card July 7, rating inpatient quality and safety in each of the province’s 95 acute care hospitals. Rankings are based on volumes of procedures, utilization rates, and rates of adverse events. Among adverse events tracked were accidental cuts or wounds during procedures, of which higher than average rates were documented

in Greater Victoria for every year of the report (2001-02 through 2008-09). The institute lauded B.C.’s health care transparency and accountability for being the only jurisdiction to provide names of all hospitals for the report. “B.C.’s health ministry should be applauded for providing patients, taxpayers, and health care providers the opportunity to learn more about the performance of local hospitals. This stands in stark contrast to Alberta and Ontario, where the performance of public institutions is concealed behind a veil of anonymity,” Fraser Institute spokesperson Nadeem Esmail said in a press release. The report draws on more than three million anonymous patient records and is available online at www.hospitalreportcards.ca. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Public Service challenge’s goal to save lives Civic workers compete to be top blood donors Roszan Holmen News staff

The blood challenge is on. City of Victoria employees are battling other public service departments across British Columbia for a chance to be the biggest blood donor. New this year, the Guns and Hoses Challenge, for the police and fire department, is joining forces with the Public

Service Challenge. They're being combined for a greater impact, said Catherine Sloot, of the Canadian Blood Services Victoria-Vancouver Island branch. Friends of family of public servants are welcome to participate, said Sloot. Simply sign in under the team you wish to support when you donate blood at the clinic at 3449 Saanich Rd. In 2010, Immigrations Canada, B.C. Public Service Agency, and the Regional District of Fraser Fort George won the competition for the highest rate of participation among employees.

Within the City of Victoria, police donated the most, at 29 units. Fire and municipal employees followed at 18 and 22 units respectively. The challenge runs June 13 to Aug. 13. It's a way to bring in new donors at a time when many regular donors are away on vacation, said Sloot. Donations are low during the summer, "yet the need never stops." To book an appointment, Please call 1-888-236-6283. Check out the website, www. bloodservices.ca, for upcoming blood typing clinics. rholmen@vicnews.com

Downtown

The region’s economic hub, despite growing threats from the ’burbs. Downtown is also the city’s fastest growing neighbourhood, but still one of its least populated. Taller buildings, and more amenities such as parks promise to change that. Growing the residential community is a key component to a vibrant business district.

D OW N T OW N C O R E A R E A P L A N

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Hugh Kruzel and Wendy Bowkett, members of the Downtown Residents Association, love the convenience of their neighbourhood. Home requires no lawn mowing, and an evening out requires no driving or planning.

Over the next 30 years, 10,000 people are predicted to move to the downtown core, up from a 2008 estimate of 6,050. The city’s challenge is to keep up with demand for space. That means, in part, rezoning for much higher densities along the Douglas corridor and Harris Green. The core encompasses the downtown proper, plus dense bordering areas. The draft Downtown Core Area Plan also calls for preservation of the heritage district; a push to stimulate light industry in Rock Bay; three new parks and the completion of the Harbour Pathway. The principles are generally supportable, according to members of the Downtown Residents’ Association. But there are qualifications. The controversial density bonus system, for example, needs more clarity, said co-chair Wendy Bowkett, speaking only for herself. If adopted, developers would contribute toward a public-amenities and heritage-preservation fund, in exchange for being granted extra density beyond the area’s zoning allowance. Asked Bowkett: What defines a public amenity? She points to the Union, a mixed-use development proceeding in Chinatown. The developer has offered Theatre Alley as a boon to the public, yet offered no covenant to prevent the future condo strata from gating it for private use, she explained. Added co-chair Hugh Kruzel: offering bonus density threatens to negate the city’s careful planning, potentially leading to big buildings in the wrong places. Now it’s your turn to weigh in. City council sent the draft plan to a non-statutory public hearing, scheduled for early fall.

Central living vibrant, but requires patience Residents rave about downtown despite serious challenges Roszan Holmen News staff

Balcony gardening is piquing the interest of downtown residents these days. After launching one successful workshop, Wendy Bowkett has arranged a second at the Silver Threads seniors’ centre. It’s about growing on a vertical plane, said Bowkett, whose to-do list also includes a series of raising-the-rooftop-garden parties for downtown residents. Attracting and retaining downtown residents is a key strategy for city hall, to build a healthy downtown where commercial activity thrives outside the work day. According to representatives of downtown residents, these efforts are paying off. Tax incentives have helped convert aging heritage buildings into condos. Improvements to Centennial Square have transformed the once deserted space. “I was totally amazed by the very first nice day this year, there were kids playing Frisbee, there were people having picnics,” said Bowkett. She is co-chair of the Downtown Residents’ Association, but qualified her comments only represent her own opinion. Walkability and vibrancy rank high for residents who are enthusiastic advocates for downtown living, despite facing serious challenges. “I can walk to work,” said Cathy Brankston, who has lived downtown since 1986. “There’s so much diversity for shopping.”

City of Victoria graphic

Hugh Kruzel, co-chair of the association, said his teenage daughter has ample activities close to home. And that means there’s no dad’s taxi service required. Downtown living isn’t all trendy restaurants, local market places and arts festivals, however. As president of his strata in Harris Green, Kruzel makes daily calls to police for prostitution, drug injection and other disturbances. Last night, for instance, a police dog woke him at 2 a.m. and he admits he’s been tempted to move a few times. Street issues, in part, influced his teenage son to leave.

“His classmate was killed in front of the Times Colonist (building),” he said, referring to Justin Wendland. He emphasizes, however, that street disorder is noticeably improving. Bowkett, who lives near Chinatown, faces different, but less serious challenges, such as kids climbing the fire escapes and loud motorcycles circling the block. A city study from 2007 indicates most new condo owners in the core are young professionals or mature singles or couples. “None of the Downtown projects currently marketing is attracting a significant number of families.” Bowkett and Kruzel, however, insist the neighbourhood defies categorization: families with kids do live downtown, and condos sell at a variety of price points. Pricing, however, is a factor for some. The longtime voice of the DRA, Rob Randall, recently left for Saanich. “We were pretty much priced out of Victoria,” said Randall, via email. “I fear there has not been as much progress as we had hoped. The influx of new residents has slowed and while many new businesses have opened, many have closed.” Still, downtown is one of the city’s fastest growing neighbourhoods. The Aria, the Astoria, the Hudson and the Juliet have all sprung up in recent years, making the 2006 Census population estimate out of date. Since community funding is tied to this number, the formula shortchanges the DRA, leaving them wanting for a new website and a community centre. “I think it’s harder to connect with residents in a community like this (because) people are coming from everywhere and the downtown belongs to everyone,” Bowkett said. For this reason, having a physical space to connect would help, she explained. rholmen@vicnews.com

Double Robbery

In the evening of both June 15 (7:41 p.m.) and June 16 (7:10 p.m.), the Subway restaurant at 1568 Fort St. was robbed. In both cases the suspect produced a small knife and demanded $100 from the cashier. It appears the same person committed both robberies. On both occasions he stated he needed the money for his daughter, who was in the hospital and she wasn’t doing very well. The suspect is described as approximated six feet tall, in his 40s, with a short, scruffy beard that was dark mixed with grey. During the first robbery he wore a black baseball hat, sunglasses and a dark green army style jacket. During the second robbery, he wore a beige toque with coloured stripes, sunglasses and a light-coloured jacket.

New approach to local planning raises concerns

Continued from Page A1

It promises better results for no man’s lands -- i.e. hot zones caught between two neighbourhoods. Doug Rhodes, chair of the Quadra Hillside Neighbourhood Plan, illustrates the point while standing along his community’s western border. It’s hard for pedestrians to cross Blanshard Street to get to Mayfair Shopping Centre, he points out. The 1.5-kilometre stretch, between Bay Street and Tolmie Avenue, has only two crosswalks. “There’s two islands on either side of Blanshard,” said Scott. That’s because neither the Burnside Gorge Neighbourhood Plan, to the west, nor the Quadra Hillside Neighbourhood Plan to the east, looked explicitly at the major roadway. “Doing a corridor study allows you to look at those types of interventions,” he said. North Park Village is another example of an area split down the middle, added Scott. A new local area plan for the village will be involving “people from Fernwood and people from North Park, and really looking at a vision for that area.” The new approach to planning has spurred some concern from neighbourhood associations, however. These micro-governments, charged with reviewing all land-use decisions within their borders, fear losing some jurisdiction as neighbourhood plans take a back seat to local area plans. “I think we’ve created a fair amount of uncertainty,” said Coun. Pamela Madoff, after a presentation of the draft downtown core area plan. There is a perception the downtown is pushing outward, because the study area of the core has been expanded, explained Madoff. As the council liaison for the North Park Association, Coun. Philippe Lucas echoed the

Court orders third psychiatric assessment

Local area planning ■ The city has no time line for completing local area plans, but has prioritized areas according to need. Phase one includes the downtown core, followed by the Douglas Street corridor, responding to possible investment by B.C. Transit. Next up, the city will focus on the Fort Street Corridor and the eastern half of Vic West. Phase three looks at the Hillside corridor, and lastly, phase four looks at nine village plans including Moss Street Village, Haultain Corners and James Bay Village.

concern. While calling the plan a “great piece of work,” he acknowledged that lumping a portion of North Park in with the core has “raised some concern there are going to be some big buildings beside them.” Scott, however, said the downtown core area plan is in draft form and the boundaries of the study area are still up for discussion. “Neighbourhood plans will continue to exist and provide direction for council. Once the local area plan is completed … we would update relevant portions of the neighbourhood plans through which it falls. “There still is a lot of good directions in those plans.” rholmen@vicnews.com NEIGHBOURHOODS AT ISSUE: Downtown, Page A7

A man who refused two earlier psychiatric assessments was ordered to take part a third time by a provincial court judge. James Richardson is charged with attempted murder, assault and two counts of sexual assault from a string of incidents on May 9. Police stopped Richardson three times in two hours – the third time was when his girlfriend called officers after he allegedly tried to strangle her. On July 6, Richardson was ordered back to a psychiatric hospital on the Lower Mainland for a third 30-day assessment. He is scheduled to appear again in court on Aug. 17.

OUR VIEW

Public ahead of politicians Count drinking and driving as another element of the 20th century’s car culture that’s been left behind in the 21st century. Earlier this week the province made the obvious decision to keep tough rules introduced 10 months ago that have worked to curb the carnage caused by intoxicated drivers. Tougher laws Across B.C., there more in line with have been 30 deaths in modern attitudes a seven-month period that averaged 61 fatalities in each of the previous five years. This is more than enough evidence to keep the laws as they are -- there had been talk of easing the rules after bars and restaurants complained the laws were too harsh and hurt business. However, while this has been somewhat true, we’ve also witnessed an evolution in how people think about their drink. Whether switching from boozy beverages to mocktails or planning an alternative way to get home, the general public appears to have adapted to the new reality. Part of this can be attributed to fear of getting caught, but we’d like to think it also signals a sea change in society. Younger generations have grown up being told about the dangers of drunk driving and their education has rubbed off on older citizens. The days of glorifying gas guzzlers are long gone. City planners looking at ways to keep people out of vehicles rather than planning urban freeways. And driving and drinking, once far too common, is also a relic of an archaic time. Taxis, bus service and even courtesy rides from good Samaritan organizations are now readily available for people who want to go out for a drink and get home without driving. The message is clear: There are options to avoid hitting the road hammered. These tougher rules work and it’s time for all B.C. drivers to work with them. What do you think?

The trail has deluxe composting toilets, bear bins, cable cars, ferries and two restaurants. There’s cellphone service and rescuers in zodiacs to evacuate the injured.

VICTORIA VICTORIA NEWS NEWS -- Friday, Friday, July July 15, 15, 2011 2011

LETTERS Readers respond: What about the shifty implementation? It seems to me the biggest issue in the HST debate is being politely avoided both in the press and in the government literature. B.C. residents were exceedingly offended when the newly re-elected Campbell government announced the introduction of this tax without mentioning this major policy change in their election campaign. It was not debated in the legislature and received very little discussion in the press. Citizens of B.C. felt so angry and powerless that they were willing to be rallied by a highly unpopular former premier with his Fight HST campaign. Our income tax laws are more complex than our criminal justice laws. Over the decades, politicians have fiddled with the income tax system to gain favour from the voters, and indeed this continues with the federal government recently tweaking the system with transit credits, health and fitness credits, etc. I personally know a number of people that have not filed income tax returns because they are intimated by the process. Consumption taxes on the other hand are fairly straightforward and hopefully will remain so. The burden of collecting and remitting the taxes falls on businesses and not individual citizens. Those that consume more, pay more tax. Many B.C. residents will vote to reject the HST because they are angry with the way the tax was implemented and want to teach the Liberal government a lesson. To my way of thinking, that is like taking a sledgehammer to a new car because you didn’t like the salesman or dealership you bought the car from. Please cast your vote in the upcoming referendum according to the tax issues. The matter at hand is too important to the province’s financial future to be used simply as another opportunity to chastise the Liberal government over its introduction of the HST. William Miller Saanich

Pro-HST ads are misleading to voters I am absolutely livid about the B.C. government’s advertising regarding the HST versus the GST and PST. Are they not attempting to influence voters (which they said they would not be doing) by stating the HST is 10 per cent, while the GST and PST equal 12 per cent? If this isn’t influencing the voters, I don’t know what else to call it.

HST, transit, Gaza

They make no mention that it will be three years before the HST is at 10 per cent and they also do not mention that the PST is not applied to various services such as restaurant dining and hair cuts and many small trades’ work, whereas the HST is on such things. The way the referendum question is worded is not very clear and they have attempted by this wording to have people misread it and answer no when they really mean yes to extinguish the HST. This was purposely done in my opinion. I strongly resent my tax dollars being used to fund this dishonest and deceitful advertising. Where is a third party to vote for come next election? M. Blainey Saanich

my new transfer once. Oneway travel only! I was so angry that I had to use three bus tickets in 1.5 hours of travel. I used to be able to get three or four quick errands done and be home within my transfer expiry time. This cost me twice my regular cost and I was very disappointed with my bus service for the first time and felt let down by B.C. Transit. I don’t get any savings for disability as I can walk, don’t need a wheelchair or an escort which is fine but did they have to triple my cost for a couple of quick doctors appointments, and a couple of store errands? Does B.C. Transit want more people to ride the bus or not? Maybe they think more auto traffic is better. Goldie Cox Victoria

Shift government offices to Langford

Flotilla’s aid hitting wrong target

From time to time I am caught in the traffic congestion leading into Victoria. Only by rescheduling my day can I avoid it. It seems that many commuters are government workers heading to their downtown offices and home again at the end of the day. Does it not make sense for some of these offices to relocate into empty office spaces in the West Shore? Would this not remove thousands of cars from the Trans-Canada Highway beyond the Langford turn offs? It may seem simplistic, but fewer downtown commuters should mean fewer cars funneling into Victoria. Larry Smeltzer Langford

Israel’s encroachment on Palestinian territory is much like our invasion of Canada’s native people, except our natives are probably much worse off – they suffer from low life expectancy, suffer from diseases and live in poverty. But I guess it is only human nature to send supplies to the Gaza strip instead of to those we have ravished – it feels better to point the finger at someone else than at ourselves. Andy Mulcahy Langford

Bus fare increases cut into fixed incomes I write to you today as I know that there are many Victorians feeling much like I do. I hear comments from people at bus stops and also boarding the bus. We feel B.C. Transit has become greedy. OK, I’m sure they have some higher expenses to maintain our busses and keep them fuelled, but for golly sakes, we as the riders have the right to go about our costly lives as well! I have epilepsy and have not been able to drive or work for the last year and a half. I must use the bus to get my daily errands done. I don’t ride enough in a week to warrant a monthly pass, but I do buy bus tickets regularly. I rode from Victoria General Hospital to downtown and received one of the new bus transfers from the driver. I went about my errands throughout the city to find I could only use

Raven Coal mine could present a ‘calamity’ From minehead near Union Bay to the coal port in Port Alberni, and all along the route in between, the proposed Raven Coal Mine in the Comox Valley is drastically riddled with hazards. Risks to human health, to water tables and water quality, to wildlife, fish, and shellfish from toxic mine tailings, to public safety from coal truck tandems travelling 24-7 on winding highway corridors from Qualicum to Port Alberni, to the dredging up of toxic dioxins and furans to “enhance” the coal port facilities at Port Alberni; these are probably the most significant. To add insult to injury, we are told that the metallurgical coal produced at this proposed project would not be used for Canadian steelmaking but rather shipped to Asia for their steel production. An independent ecological risk assessment is essential, as is an urban risk assessment. Lacking these, the proposal is a calamity-in-waiting and should be turfed ASAP.

City, navy eye sub tours Erin McCracken News staff

Greater Victoria residents and school kids may one day see the Canadian military in a whole new light – from deep within the belly of the submarine HMCS Victoria. “There is an opportunity hopefully to get it into the Inner Harbour – it will depend on tides and a few other things – where people can see it, and there might even be a chance to tour it (inside),” said Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin. The city will also explore

opportunities to bring school children from Greater Victoria school district to the boat, whether it’s moored at CFB Esquimalt or in the Inner Harbour, Fortin said. Public tours of the sub would be an opportunity for residents to connect in a very unique way with CFB Esquimalt personnel, Fortin said. The navy’s enthusiasm for the initiative gives Fortin hope the tours are only a matter of time. “Everyone’s encouraging,” said the mayor. “It’s a fantastic opportunity.”

Summer vacation time is here, and many of us are planning on going away and enjoying some well-deserved relaxation. However, vacationing away leaves your home vulnerable to breakins and theft-related crimes. A burglary can shatter your peaceof-mind and destroy your family’s sense of security. As you know, prevention is better than cure, so it helps to know what thieves are looking for and how to avoid common mistakes when leaving your home unattended.

• Install motion detector lights outside to ensure the perimeter of your house is well lit. • Organize or participate in a community watch program.  Don’ts • Leave a message on your answering machine saying that you aren’t at home. • Let newspapers and mail pile up.  Ask someone you trust to collect your newspapers and mail daily while you are away.

Also, ask someone you trust to “house sit”, especially if you plan to be away for an extended period of time. If possible, leave an itinerary and contact details with a reliable neighbour, friend, or family member. Ask them to ‘keep an eye’ on your home and report anything suspicious to police.

Officials with Canada’s Navy agree the idea has merit. “Touring a submarine is a little more difficult (because of the confined space), but I expect when available and when appropriate the boat will be opened for some public viewing,” said Gerry Pash, Canadian Navy spokesperson. It is too soon to tell when the tours will happen, Pash noted. Work on HMCS Victoria, which is tied alongside a CFB Esquimalt jetty, is ongoing as it is prepared for full operational status. emccracken@vicnews.com

Traffic fines pumped back into policing Erin Cardone News staff

Better driving habits mean fewer traffic fines, but also less money to run the Victoria Police Department. Since 2004, the provincial government has divvied up revenue from traffic fines to municipalities, to put toward policing and public safety initiatives in their community. This year, funds from traffic fine revenue (and a smaller amount from Strategic Community Investment Funds) amounted to $2,333,668 for VicPD, which polices Victoria and Esquimalt. A spokesperson for the Government Caucus of B.C. said the money from traffic fine revenues comes from tickets that were handed out for traffic infractions, so less money means fewer tickets were handed out. Essentially, it means that people were driving better. In years past, the revenue was higher for VicPD: $2,675,460 in 2009 and 2010, and $2,576,210 the two years before that. The funds go into general revenue to put toward the department’s operating budget, said VicPD spokesman Const. Mike Russell. The traffic fine revenue pays about six per cent of VicPD’s $40-million annual budget. ecardone@vicnews.com

Finding Franklin’s lost ships UVic launches Arctic search for sunken wreckage

SATURDAY, JULY 23 s 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Natalie North News staff

A great Canadian mystery could be solved next month, as the University of Victoria joins Parks Canada’s search for the lost ships of Sir John Franklin in the Northwest Passage. In 1845, 129 men set sail on the HMS Terror and HMS Erebus to explore the Northwest Passage and find a safe route from Europe to the Orient. The Franklin expedition was meant to last three years but after just 18 months, the vessels disappeared. On Aug. 9, a three-person engineering and operating team from UVic’s Ocean Technology Lab, along with their autonomous underwater vehicle, the Bluefin-12, will join a crew from Parks Canada to search the waters off Nunavut’s King William Island. “In cold water like that, these ships are fairly well preserved, so we hope that there will be a

John Luton called for a feasibility study of the project. The block-long path starts at Chandler Avenue and ends at Pemberton Park. The Friends of the Gonzales-Chandler pathway launched a website, www.sites. google.com/site/ reopenpathway. The path provided a mid-block route to Margaret Jenkins school until the 1970s, when it closed due to neighbours’ safety concerns. While council wants to move forward, there could be some massive capital cost issues, warned Coun. Chris Coleman. “We don���t want to try and signal that we’re going to do it next year.” Neighbours often fear pedestrian paths will devalue their houses and increase crime, he said. “Time and again that gets proven as a false argument as long as there’s a good management plan.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Pre-programmed with co-ordinates and monitored during each mission, the $800,000-vehicle will move 100 per cent autonomously when submerged. “The vehicle is smart enough to know when something’s going wrong and it will surface and let us know that it encountered something,” Proctor said of the Bluefin-12, which usually operates in Saanich Inlet. “We’re now headed up to completely unfamiliar territory,” she

said. “I think we’re all going to be surprised at what is thrown at us and we’re going to have to adapt fairly quickly. It won’t be freezing conditions for the crew to endure, but it will definitely be harsher than we’re used to.” The search marks Parks Canada’s third attempt at locating Franklin’s ships. In 2010, a Parks Canada research team found the HMS Investigator, one of the vessels that had been searching for the missing Franklin expedition when she sank 155 years ago. nnorth@saanichnews.com

Paint-In: chance for artists to shine Shelley Lipke News staff

Nature landscape painter Jeffrey Boron remembers his first experience with the TD Art Gallery Moss Street Paint-In. “It’s like being put into a carnival of light and colour,” he said. “It gives an artist a feeling (that) ‘yes, it does matter what I’m doing. Look at all these people who have come out to see my work.’” For Boron, who will participate in his sixth Paint-In this Saturday (July 16), the creative process began at age six. He remembers sitting at the dining room table painting tree after tree until his family asked, ‘Why don’t you paint something else?’ “I guess where I grew up, trees were a significant part of the landscape,” said Boron of the towering elm trees in Southern Ontario. Each year he strives to complete 100 paintings. As an avid outdoor and marine enthusiast, he never has a shortage of subjects. “I paint generally very heavy – Impressionistic, you may say. I describe my work as Canadian

West Coast Impressionism. “Primarily I’m looking for light. If I’m walking along and I see something that hits me with light, or contrast between dark and light and colour, I always have my camera with me to take photo references. If I am painting outside I know when the camas lilies should be blooming, so I might go to Uplands Park to paint them.” Although he’s used watercolours and acrylics before, these

days he’s sticks with oils, due to their vibrancy and texture and the feel of the medium in his strokes. Each year the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria receives hundreds of submissions from artists who want to be part of the Paint-In. Last year more than 35,000 visitors wandered up and down Moss Street between Dallas Road and Fort Street, mingling with artists and viewing their paintings, sculptures, pottery and carvings and

taking in mini-workshops and performances. Getting accepted is a competitive process. There are 150 artists allowed each year, 25 per cent of whom are new or emerging artists selected by a jury. “I am astonished every year that we have been able to keep that practice up,” said event co-ordinator Mary-Ellen Threadkell. “As you can imagine, there are always disappointed artists who don’t make it in, but there are many stories of success following multiple applications. The gallery and the artists want the Paint-In to represent the best of the year’s applicants.” Paper machier sculpture artist Jen Wright is excitedly gearing up for her first year at Paint-In, where she’ll display her sculptures and paintings. She crafts a range of pieces reflecting peace, such as a dog stretching or a sleeping horse. “I am thrilled to be included in the Moss Street Paint-In. I’m busy getting organized. It’s hard to decide what to bring. I’m worried that I’ll leave some crucial tool

behind and have trouble demonstrating,” she said. “I’m hoping to have fun and get a chance to share my work.” editor@oakbaynews.com

VICTORIA July 15, 15,2011 2011 OAK BAY NEWS NEWS -- Friday, Friday, July

Carr-inspired contest invites varying genres A new visual arts competition aims to reignite the region’s love affair with Emily Carr. The Underlying Spirit, spearheaded by the Victoria College of Art and held in partnership with various other local arts and cultural organizations, offers an opportunity to pay homage to the legendary West Coast artist. “We really are in the long-standing tradition of West Coast art here,” said college director Peter Such. “Our whole feeling is we are a world art centre that hasn’t been recognized as that – a whole, big art culture.” The competition, which is free to enter and open to visual artists from painters to sculptors and all mediums in between, was inspired by a line from Carr’s journal: “There is something bigger than fact: the underlying spirit, all it stands for, the mood, the vastness, the wildness.” The judges will be looking not for replications of Carr’s art, Such said, but works that embody the connection she felt from her natural and cultural surroundings on the West Coast. “I like anything that inspires an awe and beauty, and reflects the people’s environment and society and culture and personality – and also adds a fresh understanding of human life.” Such will be joined on the judges panel by wellknown arts figures Kerry Mason, Martin Segger, Fran Willis and Michael Warren, as well as Emily Carr House manager Jan Ross. The top 35 works will be shown at Madrona Gallery starting Sept. 9. From there, the top three pieces will receive prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second and $250 for third. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Aug. 19. See entry details at www.vca.ca/the_underlying_spirit or call 250598-5422 or email info@vca.ca. editor@oakbaynews.com

High tech comes home to historic Vic West building By Jennifer Blyth Black Press

M6 Security thrives on the challenge of doing things differently – embracing the proverbial “out-of-the-box” approach to critical thinking, and finding solutions for their home and business clients. It’s a philosophy that has served them well in the Victoria offices of the family-run company, which painstakingly refurbished an old building at the corner of William Street and Esquimalt Road into a funky office that embraces both its heritage and its current hightech role. Originally a bakery built in 1908, the property also housed a second building – the stable for the horses that would have delivered the baking and brought in supplies. Later, between the wars, the buildings would become home to a toy factory, creating toy soldiers for children wanting to re-create the battles from the war front. Unfortunately, the lead left over from those efforts also meant a four-month remediation of the property, as part of the renovations. The results, however, are nothing less that extraordinary, highlighted by a Heritage Restoration honour for M6 Security Corporation from the Com-

mercial Building Awards. Remnants of these early incarnations of the building have been preserved here and there. In addition to the carefully refurbished brick walls and a whitewashed tongue-and-groove ceiling, iron works that would have been used to secure the horses today add a touch of historical whimsy to the high-tech setting. Behind the outer office’s brick walls, fir timbers and custom barnBefore style doors with stable-inspired hardware, is a series of separate rooms housing the cutting-edge electronics systems that are the cornerstone of the company’s work. In one corner, bright with windows, high ceilings and bold colours, is the European-inspired company kitchen, designed for gathering and relaxing...and getting revitalized for the work ahead. The refurbishment of the historic building points to Swiss-born owner Willy Disler’s appreciation of the European model of taking the best of both the historic and the modern and integrating them into communities that

Modern, urban-style metal light fixtures, for example, are perfectly in tune with the Deco-style tilework, heavy beams and woodwork, some original, some designed to look it. In the charming third-floor upper apartment that accommodates staff on visits from Vancouver or Kelowna, or even family members in for a visit, the remains of bakery shoots can still be seen, where flour would have been dropped form the attic storage area to

the bakery below. When Disler purchased the building, it housed a number of artists, many who still have their studios on the middle floor – at one point during its colourful existence a fur vault for the Hudson’s Bay Company. The heavy iron door still allows entry to the now bright, airy space that offers room for several painters to pursue their passion. The incorporation of art into the building was a natural for Cont. on page 19

Birth of the Victoria International 7s Sean Duke, right, is a core part of Canada’s national sevens team. He’ll lead Canada as the favourite to win the Victoria 7s tourney. Ian Muir/Rugby Canada

On Saturday, Victoria has a chance to see rugby sevens at an world-class level for the first time on local pitches Travis Paterson News staff

T

he first ever Victoria International 7s rugby tournament is Saturday at the University of Victoria’s Wallace Field. The tourney is set to become an annual affair and festival weekend. Visiting for the first ever international event are the Mexican and Cayman Islands’ national teams as well as a Fijian team called Ratu Filise. UVic Vikes rugby coach and former national sevens manager Doug Tate is an organizer of the event and said not to underestimate the visiting countries. But Mexico and the Cayman Islands will have their hands full with the Canadian national team, the Fijian squad and Team Molly Maid. Molly Maid: Originally organized by Jim Mackenzie, the chairman and CEO of Molly Maid Canada and father of ex-Vikes and professional players Phil and Jamie. However, the brothers were both named to the 30-man Rugby Canada squad and are training full time with the team. Instead, the Molly Maid team could sweep the title with a core of national-level James Bay players. Watch out for: Neil Meechan, Morgan and Jeff Williams, and Taylor Paris. All have played for Canada on the international level.

Canada: This team is devilishly good, even without some of its regular stars. Watch out for: Phil Mack. He narrowly missed the 30-man world cup squad and has captained Team Canada to bucketfuls of trophies on the international stage. Watch out for: St. Michaels University School grads Andrew Crowe and Beau Parker. A rare chance to see Crowe, who plays university rugby back east. Also a rare chance to see Parker on the open field. Watch him run. Young Canada: Canada’s future boasts a tonne of talent but less experience. Watch out for: Michael Fuailefau, a SMUS grad and Castaway-Wanderers youth player who is now a Vike. Watch out for: Dustin Dobravsky, he’s Canada’s future fly half on the 15s team. Barbarians: This local group of spare parts boasts some of B.C.’s best backs. Watch out for: Velox’s Pita Savea and CastawayWanderers’ Matt Buckley.

Tribe will go toe-to-toe with Jason “the Jackal” Szakal of Kamloops for the International Kickboxing Federation’s junior Canadian welterweight belt. “We had it here 15 years ago and fighters said it was like the crowd was right on top of them, right in the ring,” said Slugfest organizer Stan Peterec. “You don’t get that intimate of an event anywhere.” Fighting for his second national title in a matter of months is a quick turn of events for Tribe. Three months ago the 19-year-old Saanich kid stepped in as a late opponent against local karate instructor Leigh Mueller, and won. The match was supposed to give 29-year-old Mueller a shot at the ISKA belt until Tribe took the fight. “Winning the (International Kickboxing Sport Association) was an eye-opener, especially coming in late,” Tribe said. “Everybody respects Mueller. This time I’ve been training even harder. I’m ready.” Tribe should be quicker and more technical than Szakal. According to Peterec, Szakal will be bigger and carry a bit more power. It’s the headline match out of 14 amateur kickboxing, boxing and mixed martial arts fights. The

Slugfest is an annual event for Peterec but it’s been 15 years since he held an event at the armoury. “People ask why we don’t go in the big arenas. This has atmosphere unlike anything.” Doors open at 6 p.m., fights start at 7 p.m. sports@vicnews.com

Jr. Shamrocks jump ahead in playoffs A commanding lead to open the game gave the Victoria junior Shamrocks a 16-9 victory over the Nanaimo Timbermen in game 1 of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League playoff series at Bear Mountain Arena on Tuesday night. Victoria held leads of 7-2 and 15-6 as Karsen Leung, Jesse King and Brody Eastwood each had hat tricks. Leung tabbed four assists and King had threemore. Luke Acton had a six point game and Jake Emms a five point game but the biggest goal by Mitch Meilleur, the first of his junior-A career. Cory Mayzes stopped 32 of 41 shots in net. Game 2 of the best-of-three series was in Nanaimo on Thursday. If necessary, game 3 goes at Bear Mountain Arena at 5 p.m. on Saturday (July 16).

Eagles soar as midget-B Island lacrosse champs The midget-B Victoria-Esquimalt Eagles lacrosse team are Island champs. The Eagles defeated the Campbell

River Ravens 7-4 on Sunday for the Island championship, a one-game affair. It’s the final year of minor lacrosse for the 16, 16-year-old players on the team, and they’re going out in style, with a berth in the midget-B provincials in Coquitlam, July 22 to 24. The team also has five 15-year-olds. Victoria-Esquimalt earlier swept both the Saanich Tigers and Oceanside Sharks in their best-of-three playoff series. Graeme Bates led the Eagles past the Ravens with three goals in the final while goalie Kiefer Hagedorn was “outstanding” in net, stopping 41 shots, said coach Mark Hackwell. “We had the lowest goals against average, and the lowest penalty minutes. We’re a very disciplined team, a class act and its been a pleasure to coach them.” The Eagles owned a regular season record of 12 wins and two ties in 14 games, second place behind Campbell River. Recently the Eagles went undefeated at the Penticton Barnburner midget-B tourney, defeating the Semiahmoo Rock 5-1 in the final. The organization draws from Victoria, Esquimalt, Oak Bay and View Royal.

ith only one chance to make every kilometre count, four South Island police officers have their bicycle pedals primed to make a difference. Victoria Police Department constables Alvin Deo and Mike Massine, Oak Bay reserve constable Jarrod Christison and Cpl. Mary Brigham, a CFB Esquimalt military police officer, will be among 22 police and media riders in this year’s Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock fundraiser. Participants can only take part in the event once, which is why these four Special feature officers are striving to Black Press raise $75,000 for the newspapers on event.

Christison, who is looking to raise $30,000, recalls when past riders stopped at his school. “Seeing them do the tour, I always looked up to that,” he said. “I also think it’s the ultimate form of volunteerism.” The 1,000-kilometre, 14-day journey from Port Alice to Victoria will be physically and emotionally demanding. The cyclists will meet children with cancer and people wanting to donate. Brigham is planning to shave her head during the ride to show solidarity with young cancer patients who have lost their hair through treatment. “It’s going to be emotional,” the military police officer said of the journey her team has been preparing for since March. “Regardless of all the training we’re doing, it doesn’t compare to what these (kids) are going through with their chemotherapy and recovering,” said Brigham, whose goal is to raise $5,000.

The 22-member Tour de Rock team is preparing to ride in support of pediatric cancer research and a summer camp for kids whose lives have been touched by the disease. Among those riding are Oak Bay reserve Const. Jarrod Christison, left, Victoria police constables Mike Massine and Alvin Deo, and CFB Esquimalt military police officer Cpl. Mary Brigham. “It’ll be a real mix of emotions,” said VicPD’s Massine of the upcoming ride. “I’m not above crying.” Massine’s desire to participate dates back to 1998 when he was a Saanich cop and his police colleague Const. Martin Pepper initiated the first Tour de Rock. Massine is also inspired by his 19-year-old stepdaughter who has a rare syndrome for which she requires constant care. “It’s opened my eyes to the needs parents have when they do have kids who are sick in one way or another,” said Massine, who hopes to fund raise $25,000. It was only natural for Deo to help kids

in need since, as a youth investigator, he spends most of his day doing just that. He is also a father to three young children. “I have kids of my own and just the thought of them suffering from cancer is pretty terrifying,” said Deo, who aspires to raise $15,000. “Realizing there are other families out there that are going through this right now, I just wanted to do whatever I could to help out.” Tour de Rock happens Sept. 24 to Oct. 7. To donate, please call 250-592-2244 or visit www.cancer.ca, select your province and click the Vancouver Island Tour de Rock link.

ON TOUR: This year’s Tour de Rock begins in Port Alice on Saturday, Sept. 24 and ends Friday, Oct. 7 in Victoria. Tour de Rock raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research and programs.

Water awareness urged Safety initiative unveiled at Oak Bay’s Willows Beach Erin Cardone News staff

While drownings are rather infrequent in Greater Victoria, a new campaign aims to remind people to be aware on and around the water. Whether it’s at Willows Beach, Thetis Lake or the backyard pool, drowning deaths and accidents are preventable. That’s the message behind a new joint campaign of the Canadian Red Cross and B.C. Hydro called Preventable – short for the Community Against Preventable Injuries. The campaign kicked off under sunny skies last week at Willows Beach, where organizers blew up a three-metre beach ball and laid out towels printed with the words “Before you think only other swimmers drown – have a word with yourself.” “It’s all about making sure you don’t think it’s somebody else that might drown, but thinking about yourself,” said Bruce Andrew, spokesperson for the Canadian Red Cross Coastal Region. “We call it Preventable because if people go out to a lake and had learned how to swim and taken courses on safety in the water, they’re already able to recognize what they should do.” A change in attitudes and behaviours could help prevent some of the 60 drowning deaths that happen in B.C. each year, he added. Most drownings involve children in swimming pools and bathtubs, and often happen when they are alone or unsupervised. About 35 per cent happen in lakes, rivers and streams and another 10 per cent happen in the ocean, according to the Lifesaving Society’s B.C. and Yukon division. “Often it’s people unfamiliar with the water
