Running for public office? What you need to know if you plan to run for council

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

About 18 people filled the gallery at the District of Sooke council chambers on Thursday, Sept. 15 to listen to consultant Rob Roycroft explain what it means to run for public office.

The two-hour session covered such topics as why people run for council, the challenges, what they need to be aware of and the upside as well as the pit-falls.

“The vast majority have a deep desire to make their community the best it can be, the electorate want and expect a good council,” said Roycroft.

He said everyone who runs is an independent and because they are out in the

community everyday they are open to criticism and praise and have to be aware of their actions and stances on issues even before they seek a council seat.

People with self-interest, specific issues, business or professional interests simi-lar to those of the district are likely not the best can-didates.

The time commitment is a tedious one and candidates can expect to spend more time on council business than they ever thought. Council meets four times a month and then there are the committee and board commitments.

“There are demands dur-ing the day, evenings, week-ends and at the worst possi-ble times,” stated Roycroft. “It can impact your personal and employment life.”

The compensation is not much but Roycroft said that should not deter or pre-clude someone from run-

ning for council.“Expect to spend a lot of

time on district business. The community is best served by a body represent-ing the broadest range of interest and abilities. He said that once elected a council member could expect to be available 24/7, nothing is off the record and confron-tation and arguments are commonplace.

“It’s a dirty world out there,” Roycroft warned.

The mayor’s position pays a stipend of $20,100 plus expenses and councillors get $10,050 plus expenses. Conferences and travel are covered by the district.

CRD to lobby province to purchase JDF landsPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

The development proposal put forth by Ender Ilkay and Marine Trail Holdings may be dead in the water after the zoning was turned down by the Capital Regional Dis-trict (CRD) Land Use Committee A but the game isn’t quite over.

On Wednesday, Sept. 14, after the vote to deny the rezoning applica-tion, JDF Electoral Area Director Mike Hicks put forth a motion to petition the province to purchase the lands from Ilkay.

“I made the motion, coming from the comments (at the public hear-ings) it was very clear that the peo-ple in the Juan de Fuca joined the people in the CRD, to purchase the land from Mr. Ilkay,” said Hicks.

From the Sept. 15, 2011 regular council meeting.

Public HearingsNo one opposed the

recommendation of amending Bylaw No. 493, Official Commu-nity Plan Amendment, for Atwater Landing (Grouse Nest) at 1424 Gillespie Rd. Council gave third reading and moved to approve the amendment.

The applicant applied to change the designation of the property from Rural Residential to Compre-hensive Development. The proposed rezon-ing will primarily be for residential housing with limited local com-mercial space including a park designation, as well as access to the water for things like canoeing and kayaking, said municipal planner Gerard LeBlanc.

“They are looking at a full range of mixed multi-family residences from duplexes to apart-ments,” he said.

Coun. Ron Dumont said there was a need for some road improve-ment to the area, and Atwater president Doug Regelous replied there will be “a lengthy pro-cess before doing any work.”

The development

will be “adjunct to Sooke, and will benefit the community,” said Regelous.

No speakers opposed the amendment of Bylaw No. 504, Zon-ing Amendment Bylaw (270-91) and Bylaw No. 505, 6826 Grant Road West Phased Develop-ment Agreement Autho-rization Bylaw 2011. Council gave third read-ing and the motion to pass the amendments was carried unani-mously.

The applicant requested 6826 Grant Road West be rezoned from Village Residen-tial 1 Zone (R-1) to a Medium Density Multi-Family Residential Zone (RM-3). Approximately 20 units are proposed subject to a Phased Development Agree-ment.

SubdivisionCouncil approved an

applicant’s proposal to the Agricultural Land Commission with a rec-ommendation of sup-port for the subdivision of two houses at 1810 and 1820 Connie Road into a strata conver-sion.

The application is required because the proposal would sever the ALR land which runs along Veitch Creek, with a house on either side.

Development Vari-ance Permit

Council approved the issuance of Devel-opment Variance Per-mit PLN000906 to allow living space on the ground level of a one-storey commercial building at 6580 Sooke Road. It was originally purchased by the own-ers in 1999 to be used as a chiropractor’s office with living quar-ters behind the office. At the time, the zoning bylaw allowed a resi-dence to be attached to a commercial building. In 2002, the bylaw was amended to only allow residential use above the first floor in the C-2 zone.

The building was put up for sale last year and a potential buyer has made an offer to purchase the property with the condition that

the living quarters be allowed to remain on ground level. The vari-ance permit is to mod-ify the required loca-tion of residential use on an upper floor.

Sooke resident Gail Hall said she doesn’t believe “the district should make it easier for people to sell their property,” and that it is not allowed to vary the use of the original intention of the prop-erty. LeBlanc replied “we’re not varying use, we’re varying the loca-tion of use. We permit upper floor residential use, we’re just moving it to the ground floor.”

Sign BylawCouncil gave third

reading and moved to amend Bylaw No. 480, Sign Regulation Bylaw.

During the public

input portion, Ellen Lewers asked whether a farm was permit-ted to display sand-wich boards under the amended bylaw.

Mayor Janet Evans asked council and staff whether farm was clas-sified as a home-based business. LeBlanc said a development vari-ance permit should be required for a farm, but the issue was raised that a DVP costs sev-eral hundred dollars and that there should be some kind of excep-tion depending on what the permit is for. Coun. Maja Tait said a perma-nent sign doesn’t make sense for some home businesses and farms that are seasonal, since they wouldn’t want cus-tomers potentially visit-ing during off-season.

Coun. Dumont inquired about whether illuminated signs were permitted. Tait said they are “not encour-aged” but would be allowed for businesses like a bed and breakfast off the main road that would otherwise not be visible at night.

Lewers spoke again, and said that business is tough enough for farms as is, and there is no other alternative to attract business besides sandwich boards.

“The proliferation of signs are a a sign of the times,” she said.

Evans said sandwich boards for farms are still permitted until the bylaw is adopted, at which point farm own-ers should apply for a

COUNCIL BRIEFS

Cont’d on page 5

Bennett, Kasper

and Evans announce

their political

intentions

David Bennett, a resi-dent of the District of Sooke since 1993, and a current councillor, for-mally announced his intention today to seek the position of mayor in the upcoming munic-ipal elections on Satur-day, Nov. 19 (with the pending retirement of Sooke’s second Mayor, Janet Evans).

“I am extremely hon-oured that the citizens of Sooke put their con-fidence in my abilities and my potential to contribute to the well-

being of our commu-nity as a councillor in 2008. I hope that I may continue to serve our dynamic, wonderful community for the next three years as mayor.”

Saying it’s time to restore “trust in local government,” Rick Kasper made it offi-cial and announced he is running for Sooke council in the Novem-ber election.

“Let’s work together to bring back trust and transparency to our local government.

For me, it’s about doing what’s right for the community as a whole,” Kasper said. “That means reasoned decisions in the best interests of our com-munity, with fair and respectful treatment for everyone.”

With 20+ years expe-rience in provincial and local government, Kasper is well versed in the rules and proce-dures.

Kasper served on District of Sooke Coun-cil from 2005 to 2008.

Before that, he served as MLA for Malahat Juan de Fuca for 10 years, and as CRD director for nine years. He has no political party ties, and no affiliation with any special interest.

Mayor Janet Evans announced she will be running for School Trustee in the Milnes Landing Zone of Sooke School District #62.

“Although I am step-ping away from local government I would still like to be involved in the greater commu-

nity of Sooke and Juan de Fuca. I feel I have the time, energy and ability to contribute to pub-lic service as a school board trustee.

“Our school district is the fastest growing on the island and we need to plan and deliver the best facilities and edu-cation for our youth. I look forward to hear-ing from parents and staff on their issues as we move forward to November 19,” she said.

SHORELINE CLEANUP

THE STAFF AT the Sooke News Mirror will be putting on their gloves and packing their bags and heading to Billings Spit to clean it up, as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup from Sept. 17-25.

ALTHOUGH THE TEAM

Council Briefs continue

DVP. Leblanc said, “A sign

legally in existence at the time the bylaw is adopted, even if it doesn’t conform, is per-mitted as long as it’s kept tidy.”

Dave Mallett asked about homes that aren’t businesses but just have a display sign, for instance with a family name. Evans said “depends on if it’s on the home or at the front — it’s something we can look into, those kind of things can come later.”

EPCORCouncil approved a

five-year wastewater management agree-ment with EPCOR Water Services and authorized the mayor and the chief administrative officer to go ahead.

CAO Even Parliament said there had been a lot of questions about the increased operat-ing and maintenance cost of the agreement over the previous con-tract, and that every-thing is “attributed to growth and protecting the asset.” Approxi-mately $300,000 of the new contract goes toward tipping fees (charges imposed by the waste process-ing facility), hauling, chemicals and opera-tional performance; another $100,000 is for asset protection and growth planning; and an additional $30,000 for enhanced customer service.

“All capital, of course, will be paid for and directed by the dis-trict in the future as we

move forward, mean-ing council can deter-mine where the system wants to expand based on petitions or govern-ment grant or the will of the council of the day to use reserves or any other sources of fund-ing,” said Parliament.

Coun, Herb Haldane asked how the district can pay for increased costs if projected rev-enue growth doesn’t occur. He pointed out last year the district ran a deficit in the budget, and wondered what will happen if a deficit occurs again. Parlia-ment said in that sce-nario the district would have to increase parcel taxes and slash expendi-tures. Haldane opposed the agreement.

Agricultural PlanCouncil unanimously

recommended staff prepare an Agricultural Plan for the District of Sooke.

LeBlanc said there isn’t a lot of agricultural land available, but there are a lot of people farm-ing. The plan, which will cost $7,500 to prepare, is being headed by Elis-abeth Nelson, district municipal engineer.

Coun. Haldane he hopes it will take into account the road net-working that will be required.

Mutual Aid Agree-ment

Council temporarily tabled the endorsement of a five-year Mutual Aid Agreement with the City of Colwood and the Colwood Fire Res-cue Service.

and if you have to ask the question, you likely are in conflict, either real or perceived.

If you have a pecuniary interest in an item on the agenda, you cannot participate in discussion with staff and council and you cannot vote. You are obligated to remove yourself from the council table.

“A reasonable expectation of bias is also problematic,” he said. “Coun-cil must always approach an issue with an open mind and listen.”

Pecuniary interest is difficult to access and it is not black and white.

“You need to be guarded by both your head and your heart — if you think you are, you are. The gover-nance function itself has to remain neutral.”

Roycroft said one of the best ways to figure out if one is in a conflict of interest is to ask the common per-son. if you ask, ‘do you think I would be in a conflict of interest,’ if they say ‘yes’ you would not pass the test.”

He stated that once a charge is lev-ied in a conflict situation a person pays a huge price and the corpora-tion (District of Sooke) pays a really huge price if it goes to court. He said a bylaw can be tossed out if a biased decision is made and it will cost the municipality a lot of money.

Care has to be taken in one’s pub-lic life as well as one’s personal life when they are on council.

“Embarrassment can be long last-ing.”

Carrying on Roycroft said that the first year on council was the least influential as current issues, con-tractual obligations and such were already ongoing. Effecting change takes time and at times it can be overwhelming due to demands, pres-sures, sensitivity.

There are decision-making con-straints and you will find yourself in a legislative straight jacket, said Roy-croft.

“I guarantee a newly-elected offi-cial will get frustrated.’

He spoke of a code of conduct and the necessity to run a clean cam-paign.

“Once elected you are now part of the system and you are all on the same team. When a decision is made, it becomes a corporate decision and it is the responsibility of all to sup-port it.”

Healthy debate is positive but it is important to stick to the issues and avoid personalities. He said the com-munity elects the entire council to work for positive outcomes.

Roycroft went on to talk about in-camera meeting and the importance of knowing that what was carried on behind closed doors stayed behind closed doors.

“There is no such things as ‘legisla-tive immunity’ at the local level.”

If a councillor does end up in court, the district indemnifies the council-lor when they act in good faith, but some actions can attract organiza-tion and personal liability.

“You have to be careful what you say,” Roycroft emphasized. He said this applied to one’s personal com-ments as well as public ones.

As everything is on public record, with the exception of issues of land, labour or law, a councillor or mayor’s notes, files, emails, correspondence are open to inspection.

The seminar ended with discus-sion on budgets and decision mak-ing processes. For more information a council hopeful can go to: www.civicinfo.bc.ca, as well the District of Sooke has a lot of information on the website: www.sooke.ca.

LOOKING BACKA trip back through

the Sooke News Mirror time machine...

Sept. 22, 2010 — Hello, Port Renfrew

Residents in Port Renfrew are finally get-ting a secure phonesystem.

Thanks to an infu-sion of funds from Capi-tal Regional Emergency Services Telecommuni-cations Inc., the Prov-ince of B.C. and Telus, an emergency phonesystem is going to be installed.

Mike Hicks, JDF director, had beenseeking funding earlier this year and a July 1 deadline had come and gone without a secure funding source for the $100,000 price tag.

The proposed switch system allows Port Ren-frew to become a closed service with 911 access which is diverted to the ambulance service. The one satellite system can then be used to bring inhelp in an emergency, if required.

Sept. 20, 2006 — Remembering Jeso-kah

A small memorial onthe side of Sooke Road serves as a reminderthat it has now been five years since JesokahAdkens was last seen.

It is every parent’s worst nightmare — a missing child. Scan-ning the Missing Chil-dren Society of Canada, one is astounded at the hundreds of children reported missing.

Jesokah is one ofthem. Five years ago, on Sept. 6, 2001, shevanished while walking to the bus stop at thecorner of Sooke Road and Idlemore Road. Shenever got on the bus and hasn’t been seensince.

Jesokah is describedas being 5’5” tall, 100 lbs. with long, straight blonde hair. She has a scar on her chin and is right handed. She would now be 22 years old.

Anyone with infor-mation about Jesokah Adkens should call theSooke RCMP at 250-642-5241 or the MissingChildren Society of Can-

ada at 1-800-661-6160.

Sept. 19, 2001 — Terrorism strikes theUnited States

No place in the world was untouched by theevents of Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001. Not evenSooke.

“I was absolutely dev-astated — it’s hard to articulate,” said Larry Malmgren, visiting from Eugene, Oregon on theday of the tragedy. “My wife and I feel numb.”

Malmgren was suf-fering from a doublewhammy that black day. He suspected hisson-in-law’s best friend was “probably gone.”The man worked in the World Trade Cen-tre. Also, a son-in-law’s nephew had just beenkilled in Mexico and the father could not return to the United States with the body.

“Our situation has been compounded,” Malmgren said. “There’s an extra layer of pain.”

Sept. 18, 1996 — Local hockey cream of the crop

The Sooke Minor Hockey Association cel-ebrated a major victory last week.

They were named Minor Hockey Associa-tion of the Year by the B.C. Amateur HockeyAssociation.

SMHS edged outother larger associa-tions in the running forthe Frank Spring Tro-phy, named in honour of Frank Spring, past president and life mem-ber of the BCAHA.

An average of 10 or11 of the province’s 135 associations are nomi-nated for the award each year.

The award recog-nizes the organizationwhich best develops and fosters the growthof kids in a community setting, said BCAHAproject coordinator Johnny Misley.

Sept. 18, 1991 — No no to doo doo

Parks commissioner Paulette Batt is on a crusade to eliminate dog poop on WhiffinSpit.

Met with support from her colleagues

at last week’s meet-ing, Whiffin Spit parkand other Sooke parks will be outfitted with“squatting dog” signs to remind pet owners thatthey should not permit their pets to do theirbusiness in parks.

Ms. Batt reported tocommissioners on a survey she had made ofGreater Victoria munic-ipalities to find out how they handled the prob-lem.

She said Saanich has developed a very expen-sive system of provid-ing plastic bags for dogdroppings in parks with the request that thebags be dropped off in garbage containers.

How times have changed in Sooke

At the corner of Otter Point and Eustace Road

today, a walker might be heading towards a morning coffee. In the late 1940s when this photo was taken, there was no coffee, and it was two gas pumps that dominated the scene in front of the McMillan General Store.

If the camera lens had been aimed a bit to the right, the view would have taken in Otter Point Road, up the hill. The little cottage seen here at the northwest corner of Eustace and

Otter Point was at that time the home of Bill and Ruth Lindley. Right after World War II, Bill Lindley had established the first machine shop to serve the commu-nity, further along Otter Point Road. (Today the building he erected would be recognized as “The Tin Grotto” or as “Sooke Trading.”)

In this photo, propri-etor Jenny McMillan is posed with her friend Madeleine Soule. For a decade, Ken and Jenny McMillan oper-ated this corner retail shop and raised their

two daughters, Phyllis and Mary. In the 1950s they sold their busi-ness to the Frank and Marge Bowles family, who added a coffee bar, catering to the young crowd.

In the late 1960s, Dick Davidge and Don Roberts purchased the machine shop after Bill Lindley’s passing. The Sooke Legion Housing was later established on the site of the Lind-ley cottage, on the cor-ner behind the white picket fence.

Madeleine Soule, a Sooke artist and wife of

pioneer Rupert Soule, passed away a few years after this photo. The Soule house stood on West Coast Road, at the site of today’s Ed Macgregor Park. Rupert Soule and his second wife, Gladys Graignic enjoyed many years at their water-view property, tending the beautiful gardens that later became part of the civic park.

B.C. Views

The Americanization of Canadian and B.C. politics is gathering speed now that legislated four-year terms are finally settling in at the federal and provincial level.

Scheduled elections are an important reform, but the downside is that they seem to lead inexorably to constant campaigning. The latest example is the B.C. Liberal Party’s website and radio campaign directed at upstart B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins.

“Strange days indeed,” NDP leader Adrian Dix mused on his Facebook page. “The Liberals, after a week of nasty attacks on the NDP, launched an anti-John Cummins website. Absent a policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their problems. This too will backfire as Ms. Clark is again misreading the public mood. People are demanding substance in politics these days, not photo ops and negative attacks.”

I see nothing strange in Dix rushing to the defence of Cummins, who represents the NDP’s best hope for a move into the legislature’s west wing. It is a bit odd for Dix to accuse others of lacking policy, as he leads a party that has been distinguished by little other than negative political tactics since its near-death experience in 2001.

This is almost as strange as the B.C. Liberals damning Cummins as a politician who “says one thing and does another.” Yeah, that can really come back to bite you.

There hasn’t been much of an anti-Dix effort yet, but you can be sure there is one sitting on the shelf, prepared for Clark’s recently-abandoned fall election plan. The “nasty attacks” Dix complained about were focused on his federal party’s sudden preference for Quebec seats in the House of Commons, and sniping about which Premier Clark hired more political staff – Christy or Glen?

And it was the NDP who started the negative cycle with their own TV ad, featuring “Campbell Crunch” and “Christy Crunch” cereals, both “loaded with HST.”

(I can put to rest the ghastly rumour that the B.C. Liberal war room will soon unleash a gang of angry, unemployed HST stick-men.)

The U.S. tactic of going negative early, to define your rivals before they can define themselves, has worked spectacularly for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. They scorched federal Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and public distaste for these methods does not seem to have hurt them. The anti-Cummins campaign has a similar style, and there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto.

The website, canttrustcummins.

ca, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gun-wielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie.

It was Reform BC that rose from the ashes of Social Credit, and inspired a desperate Gordon Campbell to sing country music and take a hard line on aboriginal relations, to stitch the ruptured right back together.

Cummins defined himself as a Reform-Alliance-Conservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit.

Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy, or merely more photo ops.

B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning.

Pay heed to letters policy

OUR VIEW

The letters page is an expression of opinion, a forum for issues in the community. But, it is not a soapbox for extolling the virtues of political candidates.

As of this edition, we will not be printing any letters by declared candidates running in the municipal and school board elections, until after the Nov. 19 election.

We have been very fortunate to receive letters from a wide array of residents and interested

readers. The Sooke News Mirror, over the past 40 years has been the voice of the community and the readers have never disappointed us. The Sooke News Mirror has always received many letters because our readers are involved, aware and

outspoken on topics of current interest. This has helped make the Sooke News Mirror a multi award-winning newspaper across the province and the country.

To reiterate, please confine your comments to 300 words. If you have trouble getting your point across, then your letter needs some editing. We ask that you provide your full name and address as well as your telephone number so we can clarify the letters to ensure they are legitimate. Names will be withheld only in cases where retribution is likely should an identity be revealed. The editor and publisher will however know who the writer is.

We do not publish poetry, thank you letters or announcements from non-profit groups, especially when they contain long lists of names.

We are responsible for libel and slander if such a letter or article is printed. So, keep it clean, honest and valid.

Loose dogs unsafe

I want to comment about all the canine owners in Sooke. I am tired of dealing with an all too common prob-lem.

It is great that Sooke seems to be a dog town. No huge breed issue, no huge stamina issue. But what it does have is a huge loose dog issue.

I cannot walk my dog off his property without encountering a loose dog, at least three times a week. I/we don’t care if your dog is friendly and won’t bite. Mine will. Not because he is naturally aggres-sive, but because loose dogs in the past have attacked him and he was hurt. As was I. So, now, he will protect me and himself at all costs.

I do not wish for other dogs to get hurt for something careless on the owner’s side. Leash your dogs, or contain them in your house, in a secure yard/pen and look after your dog. We seem to manage to keep our dog safe... why can’t you? It’s really not that hard. Honest.

I can 100 per cent guarantee the safety of your dog if it walks by us while on leash and under control. But I can-not guarantee its safety if it approaches us off leash. It will not be our fault. My dog does not need more train-ing, nor do I need to be more calm. You need to ensure the safety of your dog, not me.

Just today, my dog and I just got off our street and a loose dog approached us. We just narrowly escaped a dog fight, if it wasn’t for a bystander seeing the issue and helping me out (thank you whom-ever you are). Then, the loose dog narrowly escaped getting hit by a vehicle. It is not safe to have your dog run loose. There is more than just my dog out there that is a potential hazard.

Please Sooke dog owners make sure your dog is secure at all times. Go check their yards for dug out holes, loose boards in the fence, anything that can get your dog out. Make sure it has its collar, and a leash when you walk it. Licensing is a great way to insure your dog, if it gets loose, it gets returned. Heck, even a name and number on a tag helps. Let’s make Sooke a safe place for all its residents.

Also, please refresh your memory of the town’s bylaws concern-ing animal control here: www.sooke.ca/assets.

Who loses?I’m trying to wrap my

head around this. The uber-NIMBYs of

the Dogwood Initiative prefer a clear cut to a resort. Do they really believe that the prov-ince is going to give them $5 million so they can have their own pri-vate park?

It was made abun-dantly clear when Western Forest Prod-ucts sold the land that the B.C. government wasn’t going to buy it. Now, when there’s a global economic down-turn and the BCTF just got over two billion rea-sons why they won’t be getting their raise, Mike Hicks thinks that they’re going to give him $5 million to buy land that they already rejected. Stridency and arrogance win out again.

Thankfully China is buying softwood lum-ber so at least our local loggers will have employment for a few years. I guess there’s something of a silver lining to this after all. Just not for the local trades, the local First Nations, the local busi-nesses or anybody that would have benefitted over the long term.

Loose dogs are dangerous

I am writing as a visi-tor from Alberta. The topic: loose household pets, in particular, your family pet dog. We have had several incidents of close encounters with loose dogs, with no “owner” in sight, while visiting your beautiful area.

We noticed that there are pet parks in your area where you can take your pets for a friendly walk and meet other families with their pets. Most of the time, your pets have to be on a leash, why? Because they can attack any thing or per-son at any time. There are good reasons why bylaws are instituted but mostly for the safety of others.

When your pet dog is loose throughout town, it makes it dangerous for your pet as well as those who come upon the animal in question. People will respond to loose aggressive ani-mals in different ways and running away is not one of them. Also with the amount of vehicle traffic in your town, your animal is not safe. They are like children and need to be watched and cared for at all times.

I know that most pet owners are responsi-ble, take care of their animals, take them to obedience school, and willingly own up to any incidents. How-ever, let’s not have an

incident where people will be hospitalized or the animal sent to be destroyed. There are many ways to avoid a heartbreak in the fam-ily. One of those — take care of your animal by making sure they are at home with you.

Thank you for your consideration of others in your neighbourhood and visitors in your beautiful town.

Trespassing on park property

To the person that is accessing Harbourview Road off of the power-lines with their full-size vehicle.

It might be a good idea not to be doing multiple 50 metre-long burnouts on Harbour-view Road. Not only are you bringing unneces-sary attention to your-self and others like yourself that are tres-passing, but the ero-sion to the road will be significant when the rains come.

The OHV crowd can’t figure out why CRD will not let them into the parks? Just take a walk up Harbourview Road and you will see why.

Poor parking/bike rack decision

There’s a new bike rack down on Whiffin Spit parking lot.

What genius thought that one up?

It’s bad enough you took away most of the parking spots with those ‘No Parking’ yel-low lines and an exces-sive number of handi-capped spots that will see little use but why lose another parking space to a bike rack?

It could easily have been placed in the yel-low No Parking zone and still leave plenty of room for service vehi-cles to pass through the blue gate.

And another thing... be sure and leave the bike rack painted black so one dark and stormy night someone can back their vehicle into it and sue the municipality.

More scoop on the poop

Two concerned dog owners, in last week’s letters, expressed their outrage about the num-ber of people who are failing to ‘scoop the poop’ of their dogs in public venues around Sooke. The amount of dog feces deposited, especially along our wonderful trails, is becoming intolerable, unsightly and danger-ous.

As a member of a Sooke walking group, we are very aware of the problem, e.g. along the iconic Whiffin Spit, parts of the Gallop-ing Goose trail and even small Ella Beach. Nowhere seems to escape the behaviour of a number of dog own-ers who fail to clean up after their pets. Then the same people won-der why others may become hostile to them and dogs.

Spit in conjunction with the annual fall fair. For participants the col-lecting of materials on the beach for the sculp-tures was made more difficult and unpleasant as the sculptors tried to circumvent the pools of dog poo. Visitors from Orlando, Florida, after coming to dine at one of Sooke’s fine restau-rants, decided to have a stroll to view the sculptures and scenery along the path strewn with dog feces, some in the free brown bags (supplied free by the municipality). What a memory to take away how Sooke residents care for their environ-ment and other people.

The municipality has posted notices to remind dog owners of their responsibilities, and even provided waste disposal facilities in heavily frequented places. Where notices or provision are not offered, this should not be used as an excuse to fail to collect one’s dog’s feces.

If there continues to be a wanton disregard by some dog owners to clean up after their pets, the only course the municipality will have is to ban all peo-

ple walking with dogs on trails and public places. As a previous dog owner, this loss of enjoyment and exercise by humans and their pets is indeed a high price to pay for the irre-sponsibility of some very selfish dog owners who fail to ‘scoop the poop’ of their pets. M. Trouton

Preserve and protect

The Public Hearing for Marine Trail Resort was truly awareness-raising. Perhaps most of all, for residents of Juan de Fuca. How many of us knew just how much the Juan de Fuca Trail is loved and valued by people from all over? This is something that I, for one, learned from the experience.

I also learned that many of us locals – whether we came there “for” or “against” the proposal – shared the same essential con-cerns. We want the trail to be protected and

maintained. But we also want the same for our communities. We know that this is a very spe-cial but fragile place. And that it’s about the people, no less than the superlative geography. We agree that we need to preserve, protect, grow and sustain – all at the same time.

We citizens must increase our participa-tion in decision-making, governance and stew-ardsip of Juan de Fuca.

I hope we will con-tinue speaking up and coming together about this. Now is the time; not only in the wake of such a transformative Public Hearing, but also in preparation for the November elections.

Mistake in numbers

Controversial words from members of the community relative to my statement in the Sooke News Mir-ror, Aug. 31, 2011, are meant to make it seem as if I can’t count. I can

count and I can under-stand just fine. I will always ask questions and make proper inves-tigations. I can also clarify things that seem murky or questionable. So sometimes after say-ing things and hearing things more questions need to be asked.

I invite you to see money amounts bro-ken down into proper portions so you can understand. Tax rev-enues, grants and park reserve funds are of great importance in openly discussing proj-ect costs in and with the community. Casino funds are grants from the province to the Dis-trict of Sooke. These were indeed awarded by the B.C. Ministry of Public Safety and Solici-tor General.

After all grants, including a casino grant of $235,000 and in kind monies are calculated, District of Sooke taxes are paying $300,000, out of $1.74 million for the boat launch.

I was mistaken in reporting park reserve funds had been used in our land purchase. They were to be used and this changed, so there would be no con-

flict on property of com-mon use with Prestige. The Park Reserve Fund is where some amenity contributions go and all monies from selling park land go.

I was not mistaken in my use of the term grant relative to the purchase of land for our boat launch. A casino grant of $325,000 was awarded. We paid $600,000 from our tax base to equal $925,000, $900,000 is our total cost to Sooke taxpay-ers for land, dock and boat launch, worth $2,665,000.

I do not mind being corrected, there is no misery in not being right. Proper is honest and we honestly need as much as we can get to make our commu-nity strong.

To claim that taxpay-ers are paying for every-thing every time there is a payment no mat-ter where the money comes from is confus-ing. Clarity is what we need in our society and here it is… listen to who you want to. Enough of the bad mouthing of responsible people.

I’ve done the mea-suring of the park-

ing spots. All of these spots exceed expecta-tions and are up to par with the exception of a 29’ spot that measured 28’. The rest are bang on or over.

Housing and the homeless

I can’t help noting a certain irony about the Prestige Hotel being held as the venue for the District of Sooke’s recent forum on home-lessness and affordable housing, however, the sound system didn’t work and they couldn’t seem to control the air conditioning, so I sup-pose even the affluent have their problems.

The district posed the question to the charitable minded room, “what do you need from us?” My ini-tial thoughts were, gov-ernments can’t touch anything without mak-ing at least two more

problems for every one they propose to fix, and the road to hell is paved with good intentions. While some hands were out, the answer that resonated best with me was “get out of our way,” in respect to a rezoning application by one organization planning to provide a facility on Church Road. It was also sug-gested “not to let per-fection stand in the way of good enough,” which I thought was a great line.

“…the poor you have with you always,” and there is a valid place for government in our affairs, so long as it is kept in mind that the government takes from us by force that which would otherwise be given charitably, then wastes most of it.

The morning rant off my chest, I have some suggestions:

1) The sewer tax is charged on vacant properties, which is patently unreasonable. To balance things out, the district could off-set sewer charges to chari-table developments,

particularly if laundry and public shower facil-ities are offered.

2) Poor people have children, and housing is but one of a host of problems caused by lack of money, not nec-essarily any deficiency of character. Children are expensive. Pro-grams like Strong Start cannot be run without a place. Schools could be given an offset in sewer charges to make space and facilities available for children’s programs.

3) Every other Tues-day we have literally thousands of dollars in blue-box money sitting by the curb, protected with an enforced CRD “no-scavenging” bylaw. Apparently the recy-cling program really needs the money. I think if anyone is will-ing to humble them-selves to pick through the garbage, they prob-ably need it more than the CRD does, and we should give them a per-mit to do so.

4) The typical response by the district to a complex problem like this is to charter an expensive consul-tant. This issue is nei-

ther novel nor new, and a good start for Sooke would be to go to this web site and down-load The Municipal Role in Meeting Ontar-io’s Affordable Hous-ing Needs. http://www.ontarioplanners.on.ca/pdf/Handbook_022801.pdf

Carrol Pedersen and Leanna Young are host-

ing a revolution. A food revolution through social media to be exact.

Earlier this month, the two Sooke women lead a global discussion on “Bagged Lunches for Back-to-School” over Twitter with Brit-ish celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

They tweeted with other foodies and talked of ideas and ways to entice kids to eat healthier and enjoy doing so.

They were one of five or six business people chosen as guest hosts by Jamie Oliver to share information on a Twit party. They gave away prizes and facilitated the conversations then submitted an article to Jamie Oliver’s website.

Pedersen and Young are the brains and hands behind Lunchali-cious, a small business intent on providing schools with healthier food options for their special food days. Usu-ally the schools offer hot dogs and pizza.

The two moms met seven years ago at a baby talk session and have become the best of friends and business partners. Talk naturally turned to food and kids and school and health.

“We talked of lunches, fun foods that could be healthier options and we took matters into our own hands,” says Pedersen.

They began with their

own kids and when oth-ers commented on the “cute” lunches, they knew they had a win-ning idea. Fruit lolli-pops, sandwiches in fun shapes, organic and locally grown veggies and gluten and sugar free options for treats were all on the lunch box menu.

“If we give a fun name to something kids are more likely to eat it, they love anything on a stick,” says Young. “We have a lot of fun with the creativity and baking things in fun shapes.”

They have been in business for two years catering mostly to private kid-oriented events. Now they want to branch out.

They want to approach Parent Advi-sory Committees about their healthy lunch spe-cials and have them in the schools as an option for those who might wish them for their children.

Both women agree that those PACs mak-ing special food days are often overburdened with work and ideas and they think this is a perfect way to ease the work load. It also means parents have to make one less lunch a week and know their kids are eating healthy.

Healthy lunches pre-pared and delivered to the schools is not a new idea, it is a proven concept in the east and in the United States.

“A lot of schools are teaching more healthy lifestyle choices. They learn reading, writ-

ing, why not healthy eating?” stated Peder-sen. “There is a defi-nite initiative there for schools.”

Lunchalicious also takes the money chang-ing out of it, they offer Paypal and on-line ordering.

For now, they will be attending a lot of PAC meetings and talking about their service.

Where will they be in five years?

Pedersen would like to see franchises across Canada and Leanne, more realisti-cally, would like to see healthy lunches offered

every day prepared in their own commercial kitchen with staff.

It is a labour of love

and both women have the passion and com-mitment to see things through. They give a

lot of credit to social media, Facebook and Twitter where they get a lot of support.

New man takes the reins at the museumBenjamin YongSooke News Mirror

Regular patrons of the Sooke Region Museum may think they see a new face wandering the site, which is actually not a new face at all.

As of this month, Lee Boyko took over as executive director of the museum — again.

“I started Sept. 1 but I’m recycled, because I actually ran the museum 15 years ago.”

Boyko, born and raised in Steveston, first managed the facil-ity in the late 1980s, tak-ing over for Elida Peers at the time. He saw the original job open-ing for Sooke when he was helping run the Museum of Northern B.C. He stayed for five years before moving on to work for the Brit-ish Columbia Museums Association in an edu-cational capacity as a professional develop-ment coordinator, help-ing train employees in museums across the province. He said the timing was right in his career to return.

“(Sooke Region Museum) gave me a call and said ‘Would you be interested in coming back to run the museum again?’ And life circumstances were such that yeah, it made sense.”

Replacing Linda Eversol, Boyko will be looking after every-thing from curatorial

duties — working with the artifacts and exhib-its — to administration such as grant writing. In a smaller museum, a director has to “put on a lot of hats” including janitor, he said, laugh-ing.

His immediate focus for the facility is to expand on program-ming.

“More youth pro-grams, more lecture series, that type of stuff.”

He said beyond that, there is some general maintenance that needs to be done and orga-nization of exhibits to make more efficient use of the space to allow for future expansion.

“We’re pushing the limits of what the site can do, but there may be some things there.”

Finding innovative ways to draw public interest to museums is what got Boyko to fall in love with museums as a teenager over 30 years ago. His career has taken him all over B.C. and Saskatchewan, but his first exposure was close to home.

“In Steveston I got to know a gentleman, he was starting a historical society there. Harold Steves is his name, and he asked if I wanted to be involved. And that’s it, everybody should be asking young people to get involved, I think that was the key thing for me.”

He was invited by Steves to help get the

Steveston Museum started up, and soon became “a jack of all trades” performing research and develop-ing new exhibits.

“I was actually a founding board mem-ber, although I don’t think legally I was allowed to be a board member at the time because I was 14.”

As the son of a film-maker with the National Film Board, Boyko’s childhood wasn’t like that of most people. He said he spent a summer at Fortress Louisbourg in Cape Breton Island when he was 10 that was particularly memo-rable.

“For a kid to have a fort, 50 acres to play in (it’s amazing). So his-tory has always been an interest.”

What If ...? Of all the questions we ask in life, the "what if?" questions seem to be the

most popular. What if this happens? What if that doesn't happen? What if so-and-so doesn't come through on his promise? What if she were to do such-and-such? What if ...? When consumed with worry, we tend to ask the "what if" questions, even

though they rarely have answers. Jesus’ disciples did the same thing. They turned worrying into frantic

questioning. "What shall we eat?" "What shall we drink?" or "What shall we wear?" Jesus explained to His followers that to be free from anxiety involves asking a completely different set of questions -- questions with simple answers:

Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the owers of the eld grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the eld, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the re, will he not

much more clothe you?...If God so clothes the grass of the eld, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you? (Matthew 6)

The disciples knew the answers to these questions, and so do we. Dwelling on the simple, unchangeable truths will turn our focus away from

our cares which already reside in God’s very capable hands. "What if" we learned to leave them there?

West Coast Wrecks & Other Maritime Tales

by Rick JamesPublished by Har-

bour Publishingwww.harbourpub-

lishing.com128 pages, paper-

back

Men who go down to the sea in ships are a brave and adventurous lot. They live for the sea and the ships they sail on, fending off certain death tossed at them by the often murderous winds, waters and rocks off the West Coast.

All up and down the coast of British Colum-bia there are ships that have succumbed to the tortuous conditions on the Pacific Ocean.

Not for the timid are the ships that plied the waters bringing provi-sions to coastal commu-nities and taking away the resources found in the remote and often isolated places along the coast.

No matter how large, well-constructed or swift these ships were,

they were all at risk every time the winter storms howl and send the waves crashing into their hulls.

West Coast Wrecks & Other Maritime Tales is the newest contribution on maritime lore from author Rick James. He has done his homework well and provides the reader with accounts of the ships that floun-dered and often sank in the treacherous waters off British Columbia, as

well as the long forgot-ten rescues and heroes who carried them out.

They are tales of bravery and bravado, sadness and fear. These stories fill in the history of working ships and the men who survived and those who perished. Well-re-searched and laid out, West Coast Wrecks is of interest to anyone with even a passing interest in our maritime lore. It portrays a vision of the

coast from 140 years ago to more recent times. Many wrecks lay unnamed and unre-membered until James took the time to float their stories to the sur-face.

Did you know that Wreck Beach off Van-couver is not named for the ships wrecked there in storms but for the ships scuttled to serve as a breakwater? The book gives one another look at the past history of the coast, far beyond the high-rises and condo develop-ments into the working life of coastal communi-ties. It’s what this place was and how economic opportunity presented itself to those brave enough to set sail.

Photos and newspa-per accounts from the day flesh out the pages of this 128-page volume in the Raincoast Chron-icles series.

A Field Guide to Edi-ble Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest

by Daniel WinklerPublished by Har-

bour PublishingEight-fold pamphletColour photos

When people talk about a pocket guide, they usually mean a book. Author Daniel Winkler has produced a fold-out pamphlet which is the perfect reference companion for those who are out gathering edible mush-rooms.

It is bendable, water-proof and compact and would easily pit into a jacket pocket. It isn’t heavy and it contains all the information one might need when

searching the forests, lawns and roadsides for those gourmands who love wild mushrooms.

The author identifies 30 edible varieties and clearly separates the toxic toadstools from the flavourful fungi.

Discover the wonder-ful culinary delights of the boletes, chanter-elles, matsutake and oyster mushrooms.

Liza Dawson-Whisker photo

Liza Dawson-Whisker, a new student journalist in the Applied Communications Programat Camosun College happened to be in the vicinity of a rescue event on Whiffin Spit last Thursday evening. She took photos as it unfolded and interviewed the gentleman who found an unconscious woman and called for help. Here is her report and photograph.

Sooke Emergency teams responded promptly to a call from Whiffin Spit today when an unconscious woman was discovered around 6.15 p.m. on the beach. Gordon Schmidtz was playing with his dog on the beach when he spotted someone in a green jacket hunched over some rocks. He thought at first the woman was bending over taking a photograph, but quickly realized she was not moving.

“As I got closer I asked if she was okay but didn’t get any response at all and realized she was in trouble” he said.

He didn’t think she was breathing but he couldn’t tell. He immediately stopped some passers-by who called 911. Paramedics arrived promptly and the woman was taken to hospital. It is a miracle Mr. Schmidtz spotted her since it was later in the day and she was 100 yards or so away from the popular dog-walking trail in a little traversed area of the beach. Newcomer to the area Schmidtz credits his dogRider for drawing his attention in her direction.

John GroebApril 5, 1920-September 16th 2011

John Groeb. born April 5, 1920 in Harta, Hungary, passed away at home in Sooke on September 16th 2011.

His long and happy life was fi lled with adventure and drama that he enjoyed reminiscing about in his later years.

After serving in the 2nd world war, John lived in Austria until he immigrated to Canada where he worked at various occupations, includiing the heath, tobacco, mining, and restaurant industries. At one time the then unknown Robert Goulet worked and sang in John's restaurant. he became a mining instructor in Greenland where he met the Danish Queen.

He returned home to Sooke recently to reunite with his family and rest up before he travels to Columbia, South Carolina for the PGA Tour qualifying school.

Stuart Anderson back home clubs smokin’Benjamin YongSooke News Mirror

After nearly three consec-tutive months

on the road with little more than a suitcase and his clubs, Cana-dian professional golfer Stuart Anderson has finally returned home to Sooke.

The six-foot-some-thing golfer with shaggy brown hair just wrapped up the National Golf Associa-tion Hooters Tour in South Carolina. He fin-ished a close second to American Adam Long after forcing a playoff at the Woodcreek Classic. Prior to that, Anderson left Windsor, Ontario the Canadian Tour

champion.“I feel like mentally

and (my) maturity level with the game is defi-nitely to a point where I know myself, I know my capabilities out on the golf course,” said the 33-year-old Anderson, who had been on the road for tournaments almost seven weeks in a row.

Not having as much quality time with his wife, Crystol — a medi-cal assistant in Victoria — and their two kids as he’d like at their Otter Point residence, Ander-son hopes to make the most of his stay.

“(I’m) looking for-ward to spending some time with the girls, my dog, just relaxing and putting the clubs away

— for a couple days, anyways.”

Anderson has been travelling and playing competitively since October, with only brief breaks in between. Originally from Calgary,

he also made a trip to his old hometown of Fort McMurray, Alberta

in June where he was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame.

“I’ve played some really good golf, my name was at the top of the leaderboard quite a few times this year. The middle of the year I just kind of got burnt out,” said Anderson, who feels he’s near the peak of his career right now. He attributed that success to taking some time recently to go back to school.

“When you play so much you skip the fun-damentals of alignment, posture, ball position,” he said. “I started to create bad habits in my golf swing so I needed a second set of eyes to look at my golf swing to tell me what I could

work on to find some confidence and hit some good shots.”

Under the advice of friend and competitor David Miller, Anderson worked closely with instructor and former PGA player Ron Gring based out of Mobile, Alabama just before the Canadian Tour Championship. And it paid off — Anderson said he was striking the ball very well about two weeks before the competition and “good things were starting to happen.”

Following some R&R in town, he will be back in Columbia, South Carolina concentrating all his efforts towards the first stage of PGA Q(ualifying) School

in October, a series of mini-tournaments that grant select profes-sional golfers member-ship to the PGA Tour.

“Ultimately, where I am in my career, that’s what it comes down to is moving on to the next

level,” said Anderson.“I know I’m good

enough to play with (the best players in the world), I just need to get there.”

It’s time for kids to get out of the potholes and into the pool at SEA-PARC as Island Swim-ming starts up again.

The Coho swim club is looking for people to join their Island Swim Skills bronze (ages five to eight) and silver (seven to 10) clubs.

“These are pre-competitve groups,” said Coho head coach Gord Veldman. “They do compete, but not in actual sanctioned meets.”

There are six in-house local Island Swimming meets that gives the kids an idea of what they can expect at an advanced level as they get older. The bronze group swims twice a

week after school, with the silvers going three times a week.

The idea is to provide a “fun introduction” to competitive swimming. Many of the swimmers in the past have gone on to the next group

competing in regional meets all over the Island, but the focus at this stage is to build interest.

“We’re really trying to make them have fun while they learn, that way they stick with the

sport.”Monday was the

first day back in the water, but registration is ongoing. To join, give SEAPARC a call at 250-642-8000 or go on their website at crd.bc.ca/seaparc.

If the Sooke Celtic’s first game was any indi-cation, the div-1 men’s team shouldn’t have too much to worry about this season.

The team bested Juan de Fuca 6-0, with centre mid-fielder Mike Moon collecting a hat trick against a team that didn’t seem like their usual selves.

“They weren’t as strong as last year, that’s for sure,” said player coach Steven Scott.

Moon, 32, scored with a header, a penalty kick and off a rebound. Second-year player Cam Fischer, 19, also contributed with his first goal for the team.

Scott, who has been a Celtic for about eight years, said they have a strong young team this year. They picked up 19-year-old defence-man Chris Hackett dur-ing tryouts in the sum-mer.

“He played really well, super solid back there (on the field). Good distribution going forward.”

Another youngster on the team is goalie Blake Ridley, who Scott said was “on fire.”

“He kept us in every game last year,” he said. “Good hands, can’t really pick up on a weakness.”

Hackett was the only person to make the team from tryouts, and the roster is full with 17 players.

The team also faced off last Friday in an

away game against Cowichan, last year’s Jackson Cup champi-ons. They were unde-

feated against Sooke last season, and thar streak continued with a 3-0 victory.

“We had a couple chances early, Doug Armstrong hit the crossbar,” said Scott, who added the striker played “really well up front.”

He said the bounces just weren’t going their way — the Celtic were unable to convert on any opportunities and were down by two goals at halftime. Cow-ichan took off add-ing one more goal to their eventual shutout shortly before the final whistle.

“They’re a good team,” said Scott of the black white and gold squad. “They definitely did us in for a portion of the second half, that’s for sure.”

Sooke plays at home this Friday against Lake Hill at The Log (Fred Milne Park) at 7 p.m.
