Im still in shock, heart bro-ken, it just wasnt meant to be.</p><p>He said he thought the lacrosse project would have been the most green, kid-friendly project with a whole lot of support from parents and children.</p><p>I feel bad for the kids. Of all the projects approved, this one was totally geared to the children</p><p>Hicks said he would apply again.</p><p>Meanwhile District of Sooke Mayor Wendal Milne said the $250,000 grant they will receive will be used to build a eight-foot wide trail extending from Phillips Road to the corner of Char-</p><p>ters and Throup Roads. The district opted for a trail rather than a sidewalk as the trail could accommodate people, cyclists and horses. The trail would promotephysical activity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.The trail is on the first sec-tion of the Grant Road Con-nector which will eventually end up at West Coast Road.</p><p>The Grant Road Connec-tor is currently on holdand Milne hopes they can still build the trail on its own without the connector road.</p><p>He said it is unfortunate and he is disappointed that the lacrosse box grant was not forthcoming as he also wanted to see that project go ahead.</p><p>Ida Chong, Minister of Community, Sport and Cul-tural Development said, Total project funding through the Community Recreation Program for southern Vancouver Island represents more than $2.8 million. Thats a significant investment in our region, in the health of our residents, and in building more robust communities with better amenities and more jobs. Programs like this can have a profound impact on com-munities, well beyond what we see on the surface. </p><p>District of Sooke receives funds for multi-use trails</p><p>Steve Arnett photo</p><p>One big fishThe winners of the second annual Sooke Halibut Festival and Derby stand by their 119.8 pound halibut caught west ofJordan River. </p><p>Pictured from left to right are: Matt Gillie,Pat Williams, Dave Gillie and Steve Whitmore kneeling.</p><p>The winning fish brought $4,000 into the pockets of the four-man team. </p><p>Money from the derby was donated to Charters River Salmon Interpre-tive Centre, and a $1,000 donation was given to the Sooke Food Bank as well as over 100 pounds of halibut. </p><p>Ron Larson from The Q was emcee for the event and handed out prizes to the top 10 fish-ing groups, along with hidden weight and food bank prizes.</p><p>The weather on Satur-day was brutal with the northeast wind, although the skies were sunny. Sunday proved to be a nicer day, good for those who gave it a shot.</p><p>642-6480 Oliver Katz Personal Real Estate Corp. www.oliverkatz.com </p><p> we look after you </p><p>BRIGHT UPDATED OCEANFRONT CONDO Affordable Oceanfront living can be yours in this bright spacious 2BR level entry condo in the ever popular Beachcomber complex, laminate floors, romantic wood burning FP, slider to priv. patio. </p><p>6986 BRAILSFORD PLACE 6BR W/2BR SUITE Unbeatable value here in this 3100SF home w/legal tenated 2BR in-law($950/mth.) upscale gourmet granite kitchen open to LR/DR, priv r/yard w/matching garden shed-Shows beautifully! </p><p>1750 sq ft LUXURIOUS 2BR+DENTOWNHOME The Pointe former show home holds prime posi-tion in this upscale development &amp;

His boat was launched into the water for the open-ing ceremony. </p><p>Although Hales joi-ned the festivities, the idea of celebrating a public boat launch in light of the tentative fis-hing restrictions in the area was not ideal. </p><p>I almost didnt come today, he said. Its redundant. I dont even want to think about whats going to hap-pen.</p><p>Hales said the recent announcement from the Department of Ocean and Fisheries would negatively impact local </p><p>commercial businesses as Sooke relies heavily on the tourism boom that happens during the summer months -- tourists who tend to be on fishing trips. </p><p>The future looks really, quite bleak here, he said. </p><p>The same concerns were shared by Mayor Wendal Milne, who was also present at the opening ceremony, along with Councillors Kerrie Reay and Rick Kasper. </p><p>The closure of fis-hing is a real prob-lem for Sooke. I mean theres so many busi-nesses -- charter busi-ness, bed and break-fasts, community busi-nesses -- that depend on people coming to fish, Milne said. A lot of the boat use is fis-hing, its not just an out cruising kind of thing, he said. </p><p>But Milne said the looming restrictions does not nullify the need for a public boat launch. </p><p>Political dignita-ries, MP Wai Young on behalf of Minister Lynne Yelick, Western Economic Diversifica-tion and Minister Ida Chong, Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, were present to congra-tulate the Sooke com-</p><p>munity on the recent infrastructure addition. </p><p>Its always rewar-ding to visit local com-munities and to see first hand the tangible results from our govern-ment investments, Young said. </p><p>The boat launch, located behind the Best Western Prestige Oceanfront Resort, was funded through a partnership with the federal, provincial and municipal government in a program called the Building Canada Fund. The federal and provincial government cumulatively provided $605,000 of the estima-ted $1.84-million cost. </p><p>The total cost of the boat launch is still being calculated, but the District of Sooke funded $635,000, and $200,000 was provided by the Prestige Hotel with an additional $500,000 from in kind donations. </p><p> Sooke currently has two privately owned boat launches at Sunny Shores and Jocks Dock. There is also Sooke Har-bour Marina, which is a moorage launch. </p><p>The public boat launch was officially open to everyone on Nov. 1, 2011.</p><p>SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28, 2012 www.sookenewsmirror.com NEWS 3</p><p>Thumbs Up!</p><p>Up Sooke Public boat launch officially opened</p><p>Sharron Ho photos</p><p>Federal MP Wai Young, left, Sooke Mayor Wendal Milne and Ida Chong, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development were on hand for the official opening of the Sooke Boat Launch.</p><p>Ken Hales launches his boat at the new public boat launch.</p><p>Sunny skies were in evidence as the new boat launch was officially opened last Friday.</p><p>GIRL GUIDE COOKIE SALE</p><p>MARCH 31 AND April 1GIRL GUIDE COOKIE </p><p>BlitzCOME AND BUY your </p><p>classic chocolate and vanilla cookies. </p><p>THEY WILL BE available at different town core locations. </p><p>EARLY DEADLINES</p><p>THE SOOKE NEWS Mirror advises that the upcoming advertising deadlines are on Thursday at 12 noon to allow for the Good Friday long weekend. </p><p>THE OFFICE WILLBE closed on Friday, April 6.</p><p>CHAMBER CHANGES</p><p>KEL PHAIR, HAS resigned as president of the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce, citing personal reasons.
