    Reaching the skyGlade Thomas decided to measure his sunflower Wednesday because people in the Oregon Road neighborhood were starting to take notice. The verdict? Fifteen feet and still growing. I was expecting something in the range of 5 - 6 feet to add a little colour to my small garden but this is crazy, Thomas said. The guy that delivered the garden soil this spring said it was so good that Id be able to grow rocks in it. Havent managed that yet but have grown some giant mutant sunflowers.

    Mayoralty candidate Andy Adams admits to being frustrated by the strife and conflict that has charac-terized city council.

    Thats one of the reasons he has decided to run for mayor.

    That has been somewhat frus-trating which is part of the reason why I am stepping up, Adams said. Because I think Campbell River can do better. I think the citizens of Campbell River deserve better and they expect a council to operate in cohesive manner, in a professional manner and guide the community. Thats what they elect us for.

    Adams did not want to engage in a war of words with the current mayor but he made it clear that if he becomes mayor, he will be focused, positive, professional and credible.

    In fact, he said, those will be key-words of his mayoralty.

    I will guide council to work together in developing a clear vision of what we want to do and how we are going to get theretogether, he said. We must be focused, posi-tive, professional and credible. I will draw on the strengths and expertise of council, mentor and delegate to enable all members of council to be

    contributing members of a team. Council and City Hall must reach

    out and engage the community at large, whether it be community groups or individuals to ensure that we grow and prosper.

    Adams referred to the deteriorat-ing morale and climate at City Hall with incumbent Mayor Walter Jake-ways history of criticising senior city staff.

    We have had significant chal-lenges over the past three years in retaining and recruiting staff due to lack of support and leadership from some of our elected officials, Adams said. As with any organization there is always room for improvement, and a review of structure and roles to ensure that we are providing the best value for tax dollars at City Hall will be done.

    The next four years will be the most critical in establishing the vision and future for Campbell River, Adams said.

    For years the common phrase has been Campbell River has so much potential, he said. We need a plan and vision on how best to reach that potential. The current boom in building of commercial and residen-tial development, and the infusion of economic stimulus of the $1 billion John Hart Hydro Project and the $300 million Campbell River Hos-pital project (all initiatives of previ-ous councils) will last through 2017. In that four-year window, council must set the foundation for long

    The Homalco Indian Band, located just south of Campbell River, has received an additional 826 hectares of land located on Sonora Island and Thurlow Island, just off the east coast of Van-couver Island, as part of an Incremental Treaty Agreement (ITA).

    The province intro-duced ITAs in order to accelerate the treaty pro-cess by providing earlier treaty benefits before final agreements can be reached between bands and the government.

    According to a press release from the Min-istry of Aboriginal Relations and Recon-ciliation, ITAs build trust among the parties, create incentives to reach further milestones and provide increased certainty over land and resources.

    The opportunities these land transfers will create for the Homalco Indian Band through their ITA demonstrate the partnership that the provincial govern-ment and First Nations undertake on the jour-ney towards treaty, said Minister of Aboriginal Relations and Recon-ciliation John Rustad. I

    look forward to continu-ing this partnership and to seeing the tourism and forestry businesses of the Homalco flourish

    in the future.The three-stage

    transfer of the land to Homalco is B.C.s 16th ITA, and will begin with 352 hectares of land at Camelion Harbour, Thurston Bay and Owen Bay as soon as the ITA is signed, followed by 180 hectares of land at Hemming Bay and Crawford Anchorage once Homalco approves their Treaty-in-Principle with the government. Once the final treaty is signed, an additional 295 hectares of land at Young Passage will also be Homalco land.

    Homalco Chief Rich-ard Harry sees the ITA

    as key in allowing the band to realize our vision of integrated resource management that will provide long term sustainable jobs and income to our people, according to the government release.

    The Homalco band owns and operates Homalco Forestry and Homalco Wildlife Tours, two businesses they hope can grow due to this new deal with the government.

    This is a huge step forward in our treaty process and paves the way for a successful treaty with B.C. and Canada.
