We want to see the stop in the decline of the fishery that weve been witnesses over the last 10 years, said ChristopherBos, SVIAC president. </p><p>In other words we want to return and rebuild the robust, thriving fisheries that we had on South Van-couver Island historically. Its important that we have abundant, healthy fish pop-ulations and we would like to see our wild fish given more respect by our govern-ment and more emphasis on rebuilding those stocks that are of concern.</p><p>We are anglers that need to get the message out about the social significance and the importance of angling to the lifestyles of many peo-ple who live on South Van-couver Island as well as the </p><p>economic impact that webring when we have a thriv-ing fishery. </p><p>Bos stated over the course of 10 years, hes observed increased restrictions and a massive decline of local fisheries like coho, chinook and halibut. </p><p>When I say decline, I use the term of 50 per cent ofour fishing time in the last decade is now under heavyrestrictions or closed com-pared to a decade ago, hesaid. </p><p>We believe the Depart-ment of Fisheries and Ocean is using the reduction of fishing opportunities for commercial, recreational, and the First Nations as a method of recovery, which has proven to be histori-cally a failure. </p><p>He said the DFO is not addressing the root prob-lem in fish stock decline, which could be a result from massive overfishing from commercial fleets, climate changes, destruction of habitat overtime or human caused activities. </p><p>We dont believe that its all nature caused as to why there are these declines and we believe that we can through our lobbying efforts create a positive change, Bos said. Im not saying theres not conservation con-cern on some of the fish, but we believe thats not being addressed properly. </p><p>One of the long-term goals of the society is to hire a full-time lobbyist in Ottawa who </p><p>will speak on behalf of SouthVancouver Island anglers. A position that will come ata hefty price of between $100,000 to $120,000. </p><p>Bos acknowledged the organization has a long road ahead. </p><p>The organization, became a society in July and had its first meeting on Nov. 27 inLangford. </p><p>We had about 125 peopleattend our meeting and we signed up over 60 per centof attendants as members on the spot, Bos said.</p><p>As a new organization, the society has identified the four following tasks: </p><p> Development of a strong membership base. </p><p> Development of a three-year business plan to iden-tify the key components such as details on the professional lobbyists,whether or not to take legal action on issues of impor-tance, and how to proceed with activism cam-paigns. </p><p>Perform an economic study on the fishery of South Vancouver Island for lobbying efforts.</p><p> Introduce themselves and educate all politicians within the SVIAC jurisdic-tion on fresh water and salt water angling on South Van-couver Island. Attain their support for lobbying efforts in Ottawa. </p><p> Generation of a large amount of funds. </p><p>Info at: www.anglerscoali-tion.com.</p><p>Sharron Ho photo</p><p>Lighting up!Sooke Fire Rescue Service volunteer firefighter, Dave Adamson, climbs a fire truck ladder to decorate the Evergreen Centre kiosk with a snowflake light.

The Land Use and Environment Committee had recom-mended that the follow-ing variance be allowed in the proposed subdi-vision: A relaxation of the front lot line set-backs for garage; and a relaxation of the rear lot line for the principle building.</p><p>Lease of Kaltasin Works Yard</p><p>Three non-profit groups and two com-mercial enterprises are looking to do business at the Kaltasin Works Yard. </p><p>A Request for Pro-posal was put out and the non-profits organi-zations; Juan de Fuca Marine Rescue Society, Sooke Region CHI/Vol-unteer Centre, Sooke Community Arts Coun-cil expressed interest in the space. The com-mercial enterprises were the Canadian Sig-nal Company Inc. and Ellice Recycle Ltd.</p><p>Discussion around the council table ensued and Mayor </p><p>Wendal Milne said the district needed some financial basis for this area and stated, I per-sonally dont want to throw out the revenue maker.</p><p>The district was receiving close to $28,000 for rental of the premises from Cana-dian Signal Co. (CSC) who leased on a month-to-month basis.</p><p>Ellice Recycle is pro-posing a waste and recycle facility with a lease rate to be negoti-ated (@$65,000). A con-siderable investment would be required and the operation would not be in place until mid-2013. There are some issues with the type of operation and rezoning which would have to take place.</p><p>The Juan de Fuca Marine Rescue Society is looking for continued placement of the cur-rent portable classroom and would enter into a shared lease arrange-ment. A lease rate has not been negotiated.</p><p>The Sooke Region CHI wished office, meet-ings and storage space for the volunteer centre and member agencies. They want the office building and two stor-</p><p>age bays and are also open to sharing.</p><p>The Sooke Commu-nity Arts Council wants gallery space and artists workshops in four stor-age bays. They also seek shared arrangements.</p><p>The owner of CSC came forward and said that his company, which deals with green technology, is looking at business in excess of $100 million over the next five years, trans-lating into 400 jobs. He said he needs space currently for 50 employ-ees. He said he is not sure where he stands as far as leasing space at the works yard and if </p><p>that didnt work out for him he would look at relocating to Langford or Colwood.</p><p>I need everything, he said. Its already in motion, its already happening.</p><p>Council directed staff to work on lease arrangements for the non-profit groups and CSC. A rezoning will have to occur and staff will bring a report back to council.</p><p>Council signed a let-ter of support to the Ministry of Environ-ment so Atwater Land-ing (the former Grouse Nest) may enter into discussions with the </p><p>MOE for the pre-reg-istration of a satellite treatment plant. </p><p>ReportsCouncil received a </p><p>lengthy report from Fire Chief Steve Sorensen on the sinking of a com-mercial fishing vessel on Oct. 9. Council dis-cussed the fact that it took a lengthy time for responsible agencies to respond and that the Coast Guard boat could not be used.</p><p>Mayor Wendal Milne said they needed to find out who in the Coast Guard was in charge of such incidents and why they couldnt use their boat since it was sitting on </p><p>our dock in our harbour.Discussion ensued </p><p>on whos responsibility it was for marine acci-dents. </p><p>In 2009 there was talk of the fire department acquiring a fire boat.</p><p>This thing concerns me, said Milne. But were not prepared to buy a boat.</p><p>Council will also be looking at developing a policy for donations and sponsorships. Council felt it was appropriate to develop a framework for monies requested and to apply a standard for every group requesting fund-ing.</p><p>SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2012 www.sookenewsmirror.com NEWS A3</p><p>Thumbs Up!</p><p>Up Sooke</p><p>SANTA CLAUS RUN</p><p>THE ANNUAL SANTA Claus Run takes place soon. </p><p>THE S...</p></li></ul>
