PRIDE CELEBRATES IN RAINBOW OF COLOUR Many Greater Victoria residents lined Government Street Sunday afternoon, with rainbow flags and colourful beads, as the the annual Pride Parade made its way through the downtown core.

Colourful floats and characters filled the streets from Pandora Avenue to Macdonald Park in James Bay, with several politicians and local celebrities taking part. editor@vicnews.com

To lighten the financial load of paying for municipal policing, the province should change the way it doles out money to municipalities, says Victoria’s city council. Under the current formula, the province passes on federal funding to municipalities serviced by the RCMP. The feds cover 10 or 30 per cent of RCMP costs, depending on population. “A 10-per-cent grant from the federal government to Victoria police officers, that’s probably around $4 million. That’s an extra 40 cops on the street,” said Victoria Mayor Dean Fortin, who also chairs the Victoria Police Board. Municipalities, such as Victoria and Esquimalt, solely fund their own municipal police services, he said. Council decided July 7 to ask the Union of British Columbia Municipalities to include the issue for discussion at its September convention. “When we take a look at our average caseload, compared to everyone else, we are about 40 cops short from what we need to get our caseload down to the provincial average,” Fortin said.

chair Dean Fortin (also mayor of Victoria). Fortin, as board chair and discipline authority over Graham, found Graham guilty of discreditable conduct in April 2011 and issued him with a written reprimand. Soon thereafter, Graham asked the OPCC for a review, while Dean asked for a public hearing. “(Potentially) outing an undercover officer deserves worse than a letter,” Dean said in an interview with the News. “As soon as I heard what he did, I said, ‘Wait a minute, he can’t make jokes about outing an undercover officer.’” Dean said he hopes people attend the review and that Filmer finds “errors” in the investigation process. “Well, to me, the biggest thing is it’s shameful that (Graham is appealing the finding).

A retired judge will look at a decision that found Victoria’s police chief guilty of discreditable conduct. The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner said Friday it will hold a review on record, which is a public meeting that takes another look at the decision. Former judge Alan Filmer will review the decision. A date has not been set. The finding of discreditable conduct against police Chief Jamie Graham stemmed from a security conference in November 2009 where Graham said he had an officer driving a busload of Olympic protesters over to Vancouver for to the 2010 Olympic torch run. Victoria resident Bruce Dean complained, saying the comment jeopardized the undercover officer’s safety. It has never been proven whether an officer was, in fact, driving the bus. An investigation by RCMP Chief Superintendent Rick Taylor found Dean’s allegations against Graham were substantiated. Those findings were forwarded to Victoria police board

gle time he’s avoided accountability on it. He’s wasting taxpayers’ money by not saying, ‘OK, I’m wrong.’ What kind of role model is he for children? What kind of role model is he for his department?” Deputy police complaint commissioner Rollie Woods said, “A review on the record is a quicker, less expensive adjudicative avenue to take.” Woods said Filmer’s review will look at the reports submitted on the issue and can call for submissions from Graham and Dean, rather than presiding over a “full-blown hearing” with witnesses and a trial. Police complaint commissioner Stan Lowe said in a report the review on the record is necessary in the public’s interest. Graham did not return phone calls to the news. VicPD spokesman Const. Mike Russell said the department would not comment on the issue until the process was complete. ecardone@vicnews.com

To effect change, council hopes other B.C. municipalities will join in asking the provincial government to change the funding process so they too receive the same financial support as municipalities that have RCMP services. There are still many benefits to having a municipal police service, rather than an RCMP force, such as the autonomy that comes with a municipal police board, Fortin said. “So you have an opportunity for greater input from a community level. You don’t have that with the RCMP,” he said. The federal government costshares RCMP services, which can be redeployed throughout Canada in the event of an emergency, according to the B.C.

Greater Victoria harmonized sales tax opponent takes fight to region’s roadways Edward Hill News staff

Finding a patch of soft earth, Brad Slade spikes his blue anti-harmonized sales tax sign into the side of the road. Looking at it’s message, he never thought he’d be a “yes” man. Slade was a key anti-HST organizer in Greater Victoria during last year’s provincewide campaign that triggered the HST referendum, and is still working at keeping the controversial tax in the public eye. In past weeks, the View Royal resident has been dotting the highways and byways of the Capital Region with “vote yes to extinguish the HST” signs, a project he started after seeing proHST ads on TV during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Getting permission from the Ministry of Transportation to line the Trans-Canada and Pat Bay highways with signs was no easy task. Slade discovered rules for referendum messaging was an unknown quantity. Ministry managers were left scratching their heads for weeks. Slade, 47, kept pressing the transportation minister’s office for an answer. “Eventually they told me they’d treat it like election signage,” he said. “Needless to say, I was jumping for joy.” The sign request has set precedent for the rest of the province. After mulling the issues, Victoria, View Royal, Metchosin, Sooke, Esquimalt and Saanich also gave the OK for Slade to post referEdward Hill/News staff endum signs on municipal roadways.

Panel expects HST to help, economy, create jobs Edward Hill News staff

The independent panel that studied the ramifications of the B.C. HST expects families to pay an average of $350 more per year, and about 17 per cent of goods and services are taxed higher under HST. Rent, most groceries and fuel are the same, for instance, but items such as home repair, restaurant meals and professional services cost more. The panel report noted that under PST, business tended to pass on an “invisible” seven per cent on consumer goods to offset tax paid by the business when it purchased those goods as wholesale. The HST should help push prices down, the report said. The panel also expects the HST to ramp up economic growth, wages and employment over time, and that moving back to PST-GST will have negative consequences. At the same time, the HST will have an impact on consumers’ bottom line –- after rebates and tax credits, B.C. residents will pay $1.33 billion more in sales tax and businesses will pay about $730 million less in tax in 2011-12. “Our consensus is the HST will be a net benefit to the economy. But you shouldn’t expect dramatic results overnight,” the panel report concluded. editor@vicnews.com

Paint-in transforms Moss Street into studio en plein-air Erin McCracken News staff

Did you know?

With practised hands and an eye for detail, Alain Costaz can bring a plain piece of paper to life when he draws a model posing before him. “I’m not trying to make perfect replicas of the figure,” the Victoria artist said. “I’m trying to capture expression and emotion.” People who haven’t had the chance to try life drawing for themselves, have that to look forward to at the TD Art Gallery Paint-In along Moss Street on Saturday (July 16). The event, which grown over the past 24 years, serves as the largest open-air artist studio on the Island where spectators can also embrace their creativity, said Mary-ellen Threadkell, paint-in co-ordinator and assistant director of advancements at the Greater Victoria Art Gallery. “A lot of artists are teachers even if they’re not teaching professionally. They love to have that interaction,” Threadkell said.

■ The paint-in happens on Moss Street between Fort Street and Dallas Road on July 16, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ■ The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria will be open that day by donation, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ■ A food and beverage garden will be held in the gallery parking lot from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., where Latin dancing courtesy of Kumbia will also held from 5 to 9 p.m. ■ For details, please visit www. aggv.ca, or call 250-384-4171.

Fire chief retires after 5 years Live Jazz! New chief, Jeff Lambert, arrives from Port Moody July 25 Erin Cardone News staff

Leadership of the Victoria Fire Department is changing hands. Fire Chief Doug Angrove will retire July 29 after five years at the helm of the department and two more as deputy chief. He’ll pass the reins to the former chief of the Port Moody Fire Department, Jeff Lambert. “I will miss the people,” said Angrove, 54. “But I’m looking forward to not thinking about the safety of our members, the safety of our community 24-7. “You’re always thinking about work. You realize that every moment our workers are out there. And I told my wife she’ll get me back 100 per cent.” Lambert spent six years as fire chief in Port Moody.

So, he joined the Canadian Forces as a marine engineer for the Canadian Navy and worked in Halifax, which required shipboard firefighting.

Vision Matters Dr. Stephen Taylor

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Has my vision changed? How frequently should one “change ones glasses?” There is no hard and fast answer to this question. Certain people are able to keep the same prescription for two or three years, sometimes longer, while others require more frequent changes. Nearsighted children and adults between age forty and sixty, usually fall into the latter category, often requiring new prescriptions annually for several years. Typically, most adults will require lenses for reading and near work, when they reach their early forties. If distance vision is good without glasses, “readers” are often all that is necessary; but if distance correction is needed, bifocals or progressive lenses are most commonly prescribed. The reading prescription usually changes about every one to two years until age sixty or so. After sixty, barring eye health problems such as cataracts, the vision is usually very stable, and only minor changes are required. The best way to monitor these changes is to have routine eye examinations. Not only do these timely visits ensure the eyes are healthy, they are the most effective way to ensure a person is seeing as well as he or she should.

Weird and wonderful performers take to inaugural Buskers Festival Erin Cardone News staff

Surrounded by hundreds of expectant faces, Victor Rubilar has the calm disposition of a seasoned professional. And a professional he is – one that plies his trade juggling soccer balls with his feet, spinning them on his forehead, stalling them on his back and juggling five of them at a time. The guy’s got a way with soccer balls. Hailing from Sweden, Rubilar holds four Guinness World Records. Last year, he performed at 251 shows and this year, before making his way to the inaugural Victoria International Buskers Festival, he’s spent a few weeks in Qatar, at the Asian Football Cup. He’s one of more than 15 acts coming to the festival, organized by John Vickers. “I hail from the Maritimes originally,” Vickers said, referencing the successful Halifax International Buskers Festival. “It struck me that Victoria has such a picturesque downtown and we seem to be lacking when it comes to free-to-attend familyoriented festivals.” After taking in the East Coast version of the event, Vickers teamed up with Sharon Mahoney, who goes by the performer’s name Tallulah. “John and I worked together to create as much of a diverse lineup (as we could),” Mahoney said in an email from Ireland, where she was performing. The range of acts at the festival, which takes to six stages between July 15 and 24 span from the goofy (“contemporary clown” Fraser Hooper from the U.K.) to the awe-inspiring (the U.S.-based Aerial Angels, who dangle overhead from bright pink ribbons) to the shocking (New Zealand’s Bendy Em can fit herself inside a 40-centimetre-square box). Those are just the visiting acts. Plenty of local buskers will perform during the week-long event as well, including the lower causeway’s one-man band, Dave Harris.

Photo submitted

The U.S.-based Aerial Angels will perform during the Victoria International Buskers Festival, July 15 to 24. Vickers said he’s looking forward to Flame Oz, a group of dancers and performers whose props include fire. “They’ve won people’s choice awards at other international festivals around the world,” Vickers said. For more information, pick up the festival booklet for $2 at the Bay Centre’s lower level kiosk. Proceeds go to the Victoria Youth Clinic. ecardone@vicnews.com

IN BRIEF

Living flag sets new record A human Canada flag created on July 1 on the B.C. legislature lawns has set a new local record, and outpaced this year’s goal to have 2,500 participants. An estimated 3,222 people wore red or white T-shirts to form the living flag, blasting last year’s record of 2,100 people. Victoria has been creating the flag since 2006, but Winnipeg provided some friendly competition by creating its first living flag this year with about 3,400 people. “We are delighted to have started this and to see it take off across the country,” said Ken Kelly, general manager of the Downtown Victoria Business Association. “We may be unable to say for certain who won this year, but next year you can be guaranteed we will have mechanisms for counting in place.”

Candidates lineup for Esq. council seat Four rookie candidates throw hat in ring for fall civic election Erin McCracken News staff

Four Esquimalt residents, who have never served on the township’s council, plan to include their names on the election ballot in November. Tim Morrison works in communications for B.C. Assessment, is one of 10 co-chairs with the Esquimalt Residents Association and is editor of the online news magazine EsquimaltReview.com. His political experience includes two terms as a North Vancouver school board trustee, and he volunteers on the township’s parks and recreation advisory committee. “We need to focus on what should be down and what should be up in Esquimalt,” said Morrison. “We need to keep our property taxes down in

order to make our community more affordable to younger families while upping economic opportunities for new businesses to locate here in support of our tax base.” David Hodgins has extensive administrative experience at the municipal and provincial political level. Retired, he was a B.C. fire commissioner and assistant deputy minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. He now works as a fire rescue and emergency management consultant, and volunteers as co-chair of the Esquimalt Residents Association and as national vice-chair of the Boys & Girls Club of Canada. Earlier this year Hodgins sought the federal Liberal nomination for the Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca riding, but lost to Langford Coun. Lillian Szpak. “I want to be involved,” Hodgins said. “I’ve served in administration for 34 years, 27 of them at the municipal level. I have a real passion for public service.” Bob McKie, who has lived in the township since 1967, first ran for

Steffler, an employee of Country Grocer at the Esquimalt Plaza, helped organize and run the Fight HST petition for the Esquimalt-Royal Roads riding. “I love Esquimalt and I want to help it grow and become the world class community I know it has always been,” Steffler said. “I am also running to keep an independent voice in the council, so that our city is not just a farm team for political parties.” Municipal elections will be held throughout B.C. on Nov. 19. emccracken@vicnews.com

A provincial committee is considering a possible blanket ban on home use of pesticides for cosmetic purposes throughout B.C. The committee is now considering the potential to outlaw the sale of pesticides and the possible impact on farmers and forestry. Dozens of B.C. cities already have local bans on residential use – including Victoria and Esquimalt – but the ability to buy a herbicide or insecticide in one area and use it in another means there are grounds to consider a B.C. standard.

OUR VIEW

Conservatism creep evident In Greater Victoria, we can take for granted our ability to live in relative safety and security, to move and act freely, as long as we don’t harm others or someone else’s property. With the discreditable conduct decision against Victoria police Chief Jamie Graham for an offhand comment he made at an Olympic security conference to be reviewed, it has us reconsidering just how free we are. Whether there was, as Graham claimed, an undercover Victoria police officer driving a bus filled with protesters to Olympic torch relay events in Vancouver is almost beside the point. Graham made the comment at an event focused on security for a major international event, presumably a venue where serious strategies for dealing with breaches of security were being tossed around. At best, such a comment could be considered a show of braggadocio among police officers. At worst, it indicates a belief that it’s acceptable for police to infiltrate the ranks of people planning or travelling to an otherwise legal and peaceful protest. Were there individuals on this bus who were known to police and considered a threat to engage in illegal or unsafe activities related to the torch relay? We don’t know, since the police haven’t told us. Even if there were, inserting a spy in the midst of a group of predominantly law-abiding people is not cool. It’s not the democratic Canada we live in. Other methods could have sufficed, like following the bus and keeping an eye on suspect individuals. The discreditable conduct charge against Graham for making the comment out loud is moot here and has deflected attention away from the real issue. The more serious point – one which we would like to call conservatism creep – is that the police would even consider planting a spy in such an environment. It smacks of authorities thinking they are somehow above the public, not a part of the community. That is a scary thought, indeed. What do you think?

A how-to for environmentalists businesspeople, artists, scientists Young people often ask me – to see and understand the world what they have to do to be that way because once we “get environmentalists. They want to it,” we treat our surroundings in make a difference. My answer is, a radically different way, with the “Follow your heart. Do what you respect that we should love most and pursue it have toward our own with passion.” bodies and loved ones. You see, environFor most of human mentalism isn’t a existence, we were profession or discipline; hunter-gatherers who it’s a way of seeing our understood how deeply place in the world.

playoff or a devastating tornado in the southern U.S., and then trumpet Oprah’s last TV program and another sex scandal. And then we hear of floods in Pakistan or Manitoba, forest fires raging in northern Alberta, and thinning sea ice in the Arctic, retreating glaciers and drought in rainforests. Reports about floods and droughts and sea ice and climate change get sandwiched between clips about scandals and celebrities, and so we view them as isolated events. An environmental perspective would consider the possibility that many of the events are connected to an underlying cause. Such a perspective would help us get to the root of problems rather than trying to stamp out brushfires without identifying the source of a conflagration. We tend to think of environmentalists as folks concerned about nature or an endangered species or threatened ecosystem. Environmentalists are accused of caring more for spotted owls or trees than people and jobs. That’s absurd. In seeing a world of interconnections, we understand that people are at the heart of a global ecocrisis and that genuine sustainability means also dealing with issues of hunger and poverty, of inequity and lack of justice, of terrorism, genocide and war, because as long as these issues confront humanity, sustainability will be a low priority. In our interconnected world, all of these issues are a part of the unsustainable path we are on. If we want to find solutions, we have to look at the big picture. www.davidsuzuki.org.

City staff raises irk readers Re: City’s big earners on increase, (News, July 8)

Spokesperson’s new title raises reader’s eyebrow

Pay hikes indicate ‘no recession at city hall’

As a taxpayer who sees property taxes go up every year, it is very disheartening to hear of so many city employees making such high salaries. It is unlikely that these are the people doing the actual work such as road and sewer repair, grass cutting, building inspection, etc. The city employs about 760 people – why are 28 per cent of them paid more than $75,000? We are confronted by an ever-increasing body of upper and middle managers, who argue that if they are not paid so highly they will move to other employers. Well, let them go – likely we can find some great people willing to work for $100,000 to replace those making more than $150,000. Just what additional benefit did taxpayers get for the extra $27,000 raise and promotion for Katie Josephson to director of communications? As her prior position of manager of corporate communications no longer exists, could it be that Ms. Josephson is doing the same work but with an unjustified new title and higher salary? Mayor Fortin thinks to save money

Your article could have been labelled “How green is my pork barrel?” There is no recession at city hall. After hiring four flacks at a quarter-million dollars, council gives the chief flack a $27,000 raise. That is a hike of $2,250 a month; $520 a week; $74 a day; $3 an hour. Get real. Then the council porkers dip into the barrel for expenses: $9,000 for John Luton who, just to rub the taxpayers’ noses in it, flippantly says: “I’m the new guy. I’ve got more to learn.” I don’t think there is enough money to cover what he has to learn. In 2008, Luton and his chums voted themselves a 50-per-cent pay hike to eliminate the one-third tax-free allowance for expenses. They pocket that $13,000 and still charge for expenses. For this lot, the pork barrel is bottomless. Patrick Murphy Victoria

Readers respond: Pride Day an event worthy of pride It was the summer of 1991, a Sunday, and Victoria’s first Pride Day celebration. It was held in a corner of Beacon Hill Park. A picnic of sorts, about 200 of us were there. So many things have changed since then, so many things to be thankful for in Victoria and Canada: • sexual orientation added to the Human Rights Act. • HIV antiviral drugs • hate crime laws • pro-GLBT sex-ed programs and anti-bullying in schools • same-sex marriage • gay and lesbian adoption • gay men and lesbians openly serving in the Canadian Forces. I’m thankful to all the caring people, the doctors

Staffers’ union appears to outmuscle council What appears to be happening is that the mayor is no longer in charge of the finances of the municipality because CUPE is in charge. And CUPE has set the wages of the workers higher than an average worker in the private sector would get for the same job. Also, the mayor might not also be able to reduce expenses by letting workers go, because CUPE is likely also in charge of that. So, who is in charge, CUPE or the mayor? It looks like CUPE.

who treated HIV in the early years when others would not and those behind the scenes who lent an ear, a hand up and those special words, “It’s OK to be gay;” businesses that donated time and funds to help our community over the years; GLBT bars for giving us a safe space to “be” and straight bars for welcoming “me.” I am so thankful to all the people who made Pride possible year after year, especially Mr. Terry Froud.

MAYOR’S OPEN DOOR

by capping expenses for councillors. Fine, but this is a drop in the bucket as the total of such expenses is less than $50,000. Better to save on such projects as “customer service improvements and inquiry centre: $2.5 million.” “new full-time energy co-ordinator position: $127,000,” sewage treatment, or the new bridge. Another obvious savings would be through amalgamation. Roel Hurkens Victoria

While I am delighted that CFB Esquimalt is lessening the carbon load by providing a ferry service for its personnel, I wonder about the fairness? Please tell me they pay for it, or that it is classed as a taxable benefit. This is a question your reporter apparently failed to ask. It is fine that one sailor is saving $60 a week but are the poor stiffs caught in the Colwood Crawl footing the bill for this? Anne Moon Victoria

Fortin’s track record fails to impress As a taxpayer of Victoria I am very unhappy with Mayor Dean Fortin. Since he became mayor, it appears he is on a spending spree that will not end. The debacle over the

Johnson Street Bridge, the purchase of two Traveller’s Inn motels for the homeless, the work that was done on Pandora Avenue. Fortin has taken many costly trips that he says are in the interest of the people of Victoria, but what do the taxpayers have to show for it? Their approval of the parking garage for luxury yachts in the Inner Harbour against the wishes of many Victoria residents. My property taxes went up almost 10 per cent. I shudder to think what they will be next year. The businesses and residents of Victoria are very unhappy with his spending spree. Taxpayers cannot afford another term with him as mayor.

4.7% hike too high for 2012 tax rates Victoria council tells city staff to base 2012 budget on a maximum increase of 3.5%

goals of affordable housing, he said, adding property tax increases also affect renters. Mayor Dean Fortin called for a new target of 3.5 per cent. “We have to get really aggressive,” he said. Coun. John Luton suggested parkade advertising as a possible revenue source, or a review of solid waste collection as a possible savings. Most, however, shied away from talk of service cuts. “People enjoy the service levels they have,” said Fortin. Coun. Pam Madoff warned against taking public suggestions about service cutbacks. While some people may not value city parks, for example, their comments do not necessarily reflect others, she said. Service cuts, however, aren’t the whole solution. The city can’t continue funding areas of provincial responsibility, said Warner. The remark was in part pointed at the city’s 2011 purchase of two Traveller’s Inns for affordable housing. Cost estimates for the motels’ conversion are rising, and Warner listed them as some of the risk factors not included in the 2012 budget. rholmen@vicnews.com

The message from Victoria’s finance director Brenda Warner was crystal clear. Increasing cost pressures facing the city require action. “Some services must be reduced or eliminated,” she said. Warner recommended that city council approve a 4.7 per cent property tax increase in 2012, as approved by council last year in the city’s five-year financial plan. And even with the 4.7 per cent increase, the city will need to make cuts, she warned. It was a message council unanimously rejected. “Our residents can’t absorb another 7.1 per cent tax increase,” said Coun. Philippe Lucas, referring to this year’s residential tax hike, a segment of taxpayers that bore the increase disproportionately. The increase runs counter to

Craigflower surplus funds continue work When municipal and provincial politicians gathered along Craigflower Road in Esquimalt on Friday, their celebration was twice as nice for the township. They marked the June 28 completion of a $5-million overhaul of Craigflower Road between Admirals and Garthland roads, which includes traffic-calming features, bike lanes and new sidewalks, among other components. And because the project, funded with federal gas tax dollars, came in under budget due to favourable bidding conditions, Esquimalt can put the $1-million surplus towards unfinished work on Craigflower Road, between Garthland Road and Arm Street. Work will likely begin next year on the storm water system, sidewalks and the installation of more bus shelters, said Jeff Miller, Esquimalt’s director of engineering and public works. emccracken@vicnews.com

An accordion renaissance Edward Hill News staff

Edward Hill/News staff

Jelena Milojevic, in Tempo Trend Music’s accordion room on Burnside Road, headlines this weekend’s Victoria Accordion Festival.

Forget what you know about accordion music – this isn’t your grandmother’s polka. Hundreds of the best accordion players in North America descend on Victoria this week for competitions and concerts, led by the city’s own Jelena Milojevic, Canada’s foremost classical accordionist. Growing bigger and better, this fifth Victoria Accordion Festival has expanded its competition prize purse to accordion orchestras for the first time, drawing three teams from Alberta. “We should have 70 or 80 people in the competition alone. We are expecting hundreds of musicians,” says festival director Aleksandar Milojevic, husband of Jelena. “Every year people say the festival is spectacular and this will be the biggest festival in Canada soon. But we are still growing, still experimenting and trying new things.”

One of the events will be a live-streamed, interactive workshop from an accordion master in France. This year, American accordion virtuoso Frank Marocco is sharing the stage with Jelena during Saturday’s concert at St. Andrew’s Church, and both will lead workshops. “Frank Marocco is a living legend in accordion,” Jelena says. Adds Aleksandar: “Any accordion music from a Hollywood movie is (Marocco’s) recording. He is the most recorded accordion player in the world.” The Milojevics are the driving force behind the small, but growing renaissance of accordion music in Greater Victoria. Beyond organizing the festival, they have established a two-year accordion program at Camosun College, the only location outside Toronto a musician can earn a post-secondary certficate in the accordion discipline. “It’s growing, but it’s not that easy to start. Our goal is

teaching the next generation,” Aleksandar says. “Our idea is to promote classical accordion as much as we can. We do classical, jazz and tango, not just old polka music.” Jelena is known for her passionate and striking performances of classical accordion and has helped boost Canada’s profile. Last year she placed third at the accordion Coupe Mondiale (world cup) in Rome, the best showing ever for a Canadian. At 29, the native of Croatia is energizing a new generation of fans. “Younger performers definitely attract younger people. They come in with fresh ideas and enjoy exploring new things. They push the limits.” The Milojevics are setting the stage for Victoria to host the Coupe Mondiale in 2013, coined as the Olympics of accordion performance. It would be the largest accordion event ever held in Canada. Aleksandar, who is on the jury for the 2011 Coupe Mondiale in Shanghai, China, is

lobbying the International Accordion Federation hard for the 2013 slot. “I should know by the end of July,” he says. “I’ve got to convince a few more people. But everything is in our favour. We are so close.” editor@goldstreamgazette.com

Accordion action ■ Victoria Accordion Festival runs July 14 to 17. ■ The concert of orchestras happens July 14, 7:30 p.m. at Alix Goolden Hall. ■ Frank Marocco and Jelena Milojevic perform July 16 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church. ■ For a list of workshops, competitions and events, visit www. bcaccordion.ca.

Crashes slow Hesjedal, team

The crash-filled 2011 Tour de France continues to plague team Garmin-Cervelo and Ryder Hesjedal of Victoria. Friday’s Stage 7 saw both Hesjedal and teammate Tyler Farrar go down in a pelotonseparating tumble that forced one favourite, Bradley Wiggins (U.K.), out of the race due to injury. Hesjedal recovered with Farrar but each lost three minutes on the day. By Monday’s rest day, Hesjedal had slipped to 9:33 minutes back of the lead, 43rd out of the remaining 180 cyclists. His team was fifth out of 22, 1:50 back of leaders Europcar.

Trackletes off to Pan Am games

Five athletes who train out of Victoria qualified for Team Canada at the Pan American Junior (18and 19-year-olds) Track and Field Championships, July 21-24 in Florida. Only those athletes who finished first or second in their event at the National Junior Track and Field Championships at the University of Manitoba, July 8-10, made Team Canada. Recent high school grads Adam Keenan (Lambrick Park) and Zarria Storm (Oak Bay High), both of Pacific Athletics track and field club, won gold in the hammer throw and silver in the heptathlon, respectively. The other three are all coming off their rookie season with the University of Victoria Vikes. Jenna van Vliet will represent Canada in the women’s 1,500 metre, Ryan Cassidy in the men’s 3,000m steeplechase and Rachel Francois in the women’s 800m.

Keeping the pace West Shore runners are timing the race industry Edward Hill News staff

It’s not just a beep. It’s the sound of months worth of training put into a number. For any race director, the electronic chirp as runners pass over timing mats is music to their ears. The beeps acknowledge the runner’s time has been logged – recording hundreds or even thousands of personal victories. Under the umbrella Langford Running Company, Mark Nelson and Nick Walker bought RaceDay Timing services two years ago and are now timing the vast majority of running, triathlon and adventure races on Vancouver Island and are quickly expanding to the mainland. Complementing that, they’ve also developed Raceonline.ca, an online race registration company. “It’s a real growth time for

the business. The last three or four years have been the real punch forward, with 80-hour work weeks,” says Nelson, who with Walker also operates and owns Langford Frontrunners. Now their chip timing company is growing with a staff of its own.

“The fun part for me is the ... pressure. Everyone’s time comes down to you not messing up.” – Mark Nelson

In 2010 they timed about 30 events on the Island. They’re on track for 45 this year and 60 in 2012, including events on the mainland. Last year Nelson and Walker jumped into paper thin radio-frequency tags (RFID tags) glued on race bibs. “They are crazy accurate and you can have a million people crossing the line,” Nelson says. “The fun part for me is the race timing. There is pressure. Everyone’s time comes down to

you not messing up.” RaceDay now owns 40 mats and five computers to log runner times, and is timing sizable events such as the Oak Bay, Comox and Whistler half-marathons, the Tour de Victoria cycling event and the Frontrunners Island race series. Busy enough to turn down some local events – RaceDay have their eyes on bigger prizes, the Victoria marathon and TC10K, events with over 10,000 participants. “We’ve got to keep growing with the industry. We’ll be doing Twitter and Facebook updates as people cross the line,” Nelson says. “People want results right away and the technology allows for that now.” Nelson estimates they’ve invested $100,000 in gear and web development to be in a position to grow the running services company, but notes that what people pay to enter a race usually doesn’t match actual production costs. Equipment rentals, race announcers, traffic control, policing, medical crews, food and liquids, and por-

Victoria spinning with Hesjedal in the headlines Road cycling popularity on rise with teens, boomers Travis Paterson News staff

The Tour de France thing is kind of a big deal right now. Or, at least because of Ryder Hesjedal, it’s more popular in Victoria than ever. So will Hesjedal’s Tour de France presence mean more kids racing road bikes on the South Island? Right now, it’s too early to say, Oak Bay Bikes owner Karl Ullrich said. A two-wheel fanatic who’s been involved with the Victoria Cycling League long before spandex entered the scene, Ullrich and his store are huge supporters of competitive cyclists. He’s enjoying the healthy buzz created by Hesjedal in France and from Hesjedal’s June presence for the Victoria Cycling Festival. “He’s a drawing card for cycling passion, for sure, but it would be premature to say there’s been an impact in terms of numbers on the cycling league so far this season,” Ullrich said. “If there’s been a spin off (among local road racers) from Ryder’s effect, we’ll see that in three or four years … the long term effect of kids who are jumping on their bikes right now.” If anything, it should be noted that Hesjedal is a prime example of a return to the road after the

Grant helps students get gardening Five schools in the Capital Region will soon have new gardens to teach students to grow food. The LifeCycles Project and the Capital Regional District teamed up to create an initiative called Growing Schools: From Classroom to Table, which recently won a $25,000 grant from the Keg Steakhouse and Bar’s Thanks a Million campaign. The Growing Schools initiative aims to teach young people about food, health and climate

change through hands-on gardening. Students will be able to participate in on-site workshops that are related to their studies in other subjects, such as math and science. LifeCycles’ education and outreach co-ordinator Danielle Stevenson said the five schools that will receive gardens haven’t been chosen yet. ecardone@vicnews.com
