    SOOKESOOKE NEWS 2010 WINNERM I R R O RNew CAO hired for district

    Mayor Wendal Milne is pleased to announce thatMr. Gordon Howie is the suc-cessful candidate in the Dis-trict of Sookes competitive search for the Chief Admin-istrative Officer (CAO) posi-tion.

    Mr. Howie brings con-siderable experience and knowledge in local govern-ment and economic devel-opment to the position of CAO for Sooke, said MayorMilne, Council and staff are looking forward to workingwith him.

    Mr. Howie has spent 37years in senior leadership positions in local govern-ment, most recently as Chief Administrative Officer for Prince Rupert, B.C. He will commence work with the district the first of Feb-ruary, 2013.

    Milne said there were more than 100 applicantswho applied for the top post in the municipality.

    Howie has signed a three-year contract with the Dis-trict of Sooke. The district interviewed five potential candidates shortlisted by a local headhunting firm.

    The last CAO, Evan Par-liament, left the districts employ after five years when he resigned by mutual agreement on July 31.

    The District of Sooke has had three full-time CAOs and a couple of interim short term CAOs since it was incorporated in 2000.

    Three adult males and one adult female who were inside the residence at thetime were arrested. One of the suspects attempted toflee from police and was quickly apprehended withthe assistance of a police dog. Sooke RCMP continueto investigate.

    Bylaw 500 open house draws concerned residentsPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    A number of local resi-dents came to an open house on the proposed Bylaw 500 at Sooke council chambers on Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    District planner Tracy Olsen spoke to the assem-bled and explained the rea-sons for the open house.

    Apart from the lack of public notification, staff is looking at other issues

    which came forward after Bylaw 500 was passed and adopted by council in 2011. It replaced Bylaw 270.

    Olsen said the bylaw shows significant changes to various zones in Sooke and they are examining some of the impacts of Bylaw 500 on properties. Proposed changes include setbacks and densities in the Manu-factired Home Park Zone, a reduction in the minimum lot size in the Rural Residen-tial Zone, as well as deletion

    of the CD10 zone. Council will be looking

    at six options in the Rural Residential Zone. In Sooke there are eight neighbour-hoods where there are large blocks of land zoned RU4 which will be affected in varying degrees. There are 178 lots in the RU4 zone, in areas such as Whiffin Spit, Sooke River Road, Kaltasin, Otter Point/Pascoe Roads and Gateway residential.

    Mayor Wendal Milne said that some of the changes to

    the zoning in the town cen-tre were meant to stimulate growth in the core area.

    He told those in atten-dance that if their property was affected by the changes, they should tell us.

    We will try to make peo-ple as happy as we can, he said. Theres a lot of good work done on Bylaw 500.

    He added Bylaw 500 can not be in conflict with the Official Communitiy Plan.

    Bylaw 500 will remain intact with minor changes,

    said Milne.Property owners can look

    on the District of Sookes website to ascertain whether their properties are affected by any Bylaw 500 changes.

    A second open house is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012 at the municipal hall between 4 and 8 p.m. Presentations will be made at 5 and 7 p.m.

    Dozens of peo-ple were scrambling around the far end of the community garden at Sunriver last week pushing wheelbarrows, planting shrubs and mixing dirt.

    Sixteen horticulture students from Camosun College were at the gar-den volunteering their time and getting some hands-on experience at the same time. They were there to help pre-pare a wetlands pond and build a fence.

    The wetlands pond will provide another aspect to the com-munity garden which already has garden plots and an orchard with heritage fruit trees.

    A good garden takes a long time, said Phoebe Dunbar, one of the original people to

    propose an allotment garden in Sooke. The land was an amenity provided to the District of Sooke by the Sun-river development.

    The plants being planted on Nov. 7 were bought through fund-raising efforts, like the annual Lily Walk up to the Kludahk Trail. The wetlands pond project at the community gar-den received a $3,500 grant from the District of Sooke and an unso-licited donation.

    People loved what we were doing, said Dunbar. Good ol Sooke.

    Lisa Greig, a Sooke resident and instructor at Camosun, said This is one of the most beau-tiful community gardens Ive ever seen. Ive seen beauty and progress just before my eyes.

    Grieg is no stranger to gardens, she is one

    of the horticulture instructor at Camo-sun. She has toured community gardens in many places in North America and what she says she noticed at the Sooke garden is a huge warmth and throught-fulness.

    The Sunriver Allot-

    ment Garden had over 65 volunteers last sea-son and as the popular-ity of gardening grows, so will the numbers who come out to help.

    The Sunriver Allot-ment Gardens is a initia-tive of the Sooke Food CHI and the District of Sooke.

    More need help in cold weatherPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    With the winter rains and cold weather on the horizon there are peo-ple in Sooke who have to choose between pay-ing their hydro bill of buying food. There are others who do not have warm winter clothing. Its a sad situation and it is getting worse for those who have the most basic of needs.

    The Sooke Crisis and Referral Centre on Church Road is a place where people go for help. It may be for a little food to tide them over until they get paid, or it may be a place to go for morning coffee and a small snack.

    There is an increase in need in the past year, said Liz Johnson, a vol-unteer at the centre. Its really different than it used to be, the prices have gone up and the income has not. Some-times its the hydro bill or groceries.

    At this time of year there is a special need for warm winter coats, toques, scarves, gloves

    and especially socks. Johnson said many needy folks get their feet wet and they have no where to wash or dry their socks, they just change them.

    Socks are a huge thing, she said.

    Another need for those homeless in our community is for sleep-ing bags and blankets. Johnson said there is always a need for those.

    The crisis centre serves a need in the community and at min-imum 20 to 30 people come every day for help. Some come by the centre for com-panionship and coffee, while others come for emergency groceries. The shelves at the cen-tre are not laden heav-ily with goods and they give what they can, often soup or beans.

    We always need food, canned goods and we always need money, said Johnson.

    The crisis centre accepts donations at 2043 Church Road. For more information on hours call 250-642-0215.

    Patricia BayeSpecial to the Sooke News Mirror

    During the past month there was a mag-nitude 7.7 earthquake in the Haida Gwaii and the devastating storm, Sandy which trav-eled its way through the states and up to the provinces. Although many people were shaken by the Haida Gwaii earthquake, for-tunately no one was hurt.

    The storm Sandy however not only left casualties and devasta-tion, the clean up from the storm will take some time and life has changed for many peo-ple.

    As seen by these two events, disasters can happen at any time, any place and may last a few seconds, minutes, several hours or days. The extent of a disaster varies from little dam-age to extreme damage. No area is immune to extreme weather con-ditions, flooding, earth-quakes, fire, oil spills or any other potential threats or hazards.

    What would you have done?

    Remember, emer-gency personnel and units would be deal-ing with the immediate issues of the disaster; downed power lines, fire, and they may not be able to reach you due to road destruc-tion, fallen trees, and floods.

    How would you cope?

    How long could you manage without power? Without water? With-out food?

    Could you manage for three days? Could

    you manage for a week? Perhaps three weeks?

    What about after disaster? How long do you feel it would take for you to recover?

    How prepared are you for a disaster?

    Although planning and preparation is no guarantee disaster will not affect you, planning and preparation will hopefully prepare you enough you to handle and deal with the disas-ter and to minimize the impact to you, your family, property and neighbourhood.

    Through the follow-ing articles of informa-tion it is hoped you, your family and your neighbourhood will prepare yourselves to handle an emergency or disaster should the need arise, which of course we hope never will.

    There are various government emergency preparedness websites

    that will inform you how to plan and pre-pare for a disaster.

    The following is an excerpt from http://www.getprepared .gc.ca/cnt/rsrcs/tlbx/rtcls-eng.aspx website. This is but a small sam-ple of what you can do to start to help prepare yourselves and your neighbourhood.

    Family Prepared-ness: Is your family prepared?

    Preparing for an emergency is impor-tant and something the whole family can do. By taking a few simple steps, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergen-cies and minimize the impact on yourselves and your families.

    Here are three simple steps to better prepare your family to face a range of emergencies:

    Know the risks Although the conse-quences of disasters

    can be similar, know-ing the risks specific to our community and our region (like what to do in the case of floods, tornados, earth-quakes, storm surges, hurricanes, and tech-nological or environ-mental accidents such as chemical spills and power failures) can help us better prepare.

    Make a plan Every Canadian house-hold needs an emer-gency plan. It will help you and your family know what to do if disas-ter strikes. We should all practice what to do in different emergency situations.

    Get an emergency kit During an emer-gency, we may need to get by without power or tap water. We will all need some basic sup-plies such as; three-day supply of water, non-perishable food, flash-light, batteries, battery-operated or wind-up

    radio, first aid kit, pocket knife, prescrip-tions, extra set of keys, money, and copies of important documents.

    Is your neighbour-hood prepared?

    Preparedness goes a long way towards neighbourhoods being able to cope better both during and after emergencies/disasters.

    Talk to your friends, family and co-workers about emergency pre-paredness. Develop the plans you need to make sure you are ready.

    Volunteer to help your neighbours and co-workers get pre-pared, and consider volunteering for a local emergency organiza-tion.

    Lead efforts in your community. Edu-cate others by teaching them of the importance of emergency prepared-ness and by encourag-ing groups to coordi-nate their efforts.

    Take stock of the emergency response agencies in your com-munity. Ask them what they need and how you can help.

    Take a moment to check out the various emergency prepared-ness websites. Also check out the Sooke Fire Rescue Service and Sooke Emergency Pro-gram websites.

    Remember a disas-ter can happen at any time, in any place and the extent of a disaster varies. No one knows how long the emer-gency/disaster will last or how long the clean up may take.

    Take a moment to get yourself, your fam-ily and your neighbour-hood prepared.

    Georgia Medwedrich knows of what she speaks about. She is a good example of how people often discover they have Type II Dia-betes. She found out she was pre-diabetic during an annual visit to her doctor. She was overweight but had no other symptoms of diabetes although diabetes did run in her family.

    A lot of people are walking around and dont know they have pre-diabetes, it can turn in Type II, said Med-wedrich. Just like her.

    So she was put on diabetes medication and worked at control-ling diabetes with diet and exercise. After a set back she struggled to get back to where she was but found she had to be on insulin.

    Exercise is the key, she said. The numbers are unbelievable, there are millions of people (with diabetes). They dont realize its the number one killer and can lead to heart prob-lems if they dont care

    for themselves.Medwedrich is a

    member of the Sooke Harbourside Lions and when she wanted to enter a marathon in support of Juvenile Diabetes (Type I) they helped her out tremen-dously. She was grate-ful and in turn came up with a fundraiser, the annual Rubber Duck Race.

    November is Diabe-tes Awareness Month

    Nov. 14 is designated as World Diabetes Day

    by the United Nations as it is the birth date of Sir Frederick Banting who was the co-discov-erer of insulin along with Dr. Charles Best.

    The Sooke Harbour-side Lions Club would like to take the oppor-tunity to publicly thank the approximately 45 Sooke businesses and residents for their con-tinued support in hav-ing our Change for Dia-betes collection con-tainers in their stores and the public for their generous donations. It helps make a differ-ence.

    This fundraiser was originally started many years ago by the Sooke Lioness Club (Pennies for Diabetes) and in later years continued on by the Sooke Harbour-side Lions (Change for Diabetes). Lion Barb was the Penny Lady for many years.

    Since her passing, Lion Jeanette now looks after the regular col-lecting from the busi-

    nesses. Also in Novem-ber, most of the Sooke elementary schools and some businesses participate in collecting for that month.

    From the year round Change for Diabetes donations and Har-boursides Annual Duck Race in the Spring, the Lions donate approxi-mately $6,000 annually towards the Canadian Diabetes Association and Juvenile Diabetes to aid in research, advo-cacy, education and service for diabetics.

  • Norma Stolth Lajeunesse 1926 - 2012

    Her friendly cheerful smile was her hallmark, this daughter of immi-grant Swedish parents, Norma (Stolth) Lajeu-nesse, as she lived out her life in our commu-nity from the age of five in 1931. She was the youngest child of Char-lie and Ida Stolth, raised on property bordering the river, far up Sooke River Road. In company with her big brother Elmer Smokey and sister Eleanor, she walked the four miles to attend Sooke School during the 1930s and into the 40s.

    On the way stood the Sooke Telephone Office at Milnes Landing, and before long Norma had a job there as a tele-phone operator work-ing under chief opera-tor Agnes Milne Robil-lard. While her dad Charlie Stolth first went to work on the railway when he arrived on Van-couver Island, he soon got a job in the woods. Like many pioneer fam-ilies he ran a small farm as well, using horses. One of Normas favor-ite pastimes was taking her horse riding in the Sooke hills.

    While Normas blond good looks and fun personality attracted

    a number of suitors, it was Bob Lajeunesse who won her hand, and the couple married in 1951. When Bob was a student at Milnes Landing High school, hed become known as the handsome young rake who had his own vehicle and squired the girls about town but all that changed when he met the effervescent Norma.

    Bob embarked on a career with Canadian Puget Sound Lumber and Timber Company at Jordan River and before long, the couple were in a camp house supplied by CPS. Both warm-hearted, they

    embraced family life, also taking a big role in enhancing the commu-nity as a comfortable place to raise children. Dances at the little community hall (an army camp building left over from WWII) were another source of friendly times for the tight-knit little com-pany town as it was in those days.

    Both Norma and Bob enjoyed a great sense of humour and practi-cal jokes, livening up any occasion. Five children were born to the family, who were able to attend the still-existing two-room Jor-dan River school, just

    a few blocks away. As the children grew it was only natural for Norma to become a Cub Scout leader, where she went by the title of Baloo.

    Norma also became known for her role as the official poll officer for local referendums held over the years; it seemed if there was any record-keeping or orga-nizing to be done, it was her job. Apparently she also became renowned for a heavy foot on the gas pedal. While she learned to drive in her dads Model T Ford now on show at the Sooke Region Museum, it must have been her versatility in helping

    her husband move log-ging trucks and heavy equipment that gave her the lead foot.

    With Bob moving from his warehouse job for CPS to bullbucker

    Social media is great. Its a use-ful public relations tool for busi-nesses and governmental bodies, an excellent platform for news media to disseminate content, and a good method for people to connect in their personal lives.

    When used properly communication platforms like Twitter and Facebook are invaluable. But the con-stant usage and prolifera-tion of social networking has drastically altered how people communicate with one another, and proven to be harmful on occasion.

    Bullying has always been present in the school yard. The differ-ence with bullying in todays age and in the past is that it can now fol-low you home.

    Kids and teens cant escape their tormentors if they continue to be harassed online. And unfortunately, social media provides the perfect platform for cyber-bullying. Relent-less taunts and hurtful messages can continue to be conveyed, regardless of whether or not a child is safely at home.

    Photos that are posted due to

    poor judgement can be removed, yes. But they can also be swiped off a website to be used in the future for purposes of defamation, black mail and harassment.

    Social media, which was originally designed to share per-sonal content, has also bled into the professional realm.

    Employers and recruit-ers can, privacy settings permitted, check up on employees or potential candidates.

    Needless to say, there are more than a few

    people out there who have regretted posting status updates lam-pooning their boss or photos of innocent

    debauchery. Young, working professionals now

    have to be cognizant of what sort of image they would like to present.

    Another evil of social media is its use for criminal purposes. Social media sites that facilitate immediate location check-in can put people at risk for home invasion. Burglars can easily prowl through social media to find out whos home and whos not.

    And finally, although not as dia-

    bolical, is the effect social media has had on interpersonal communica-tion.

    Nowadays, people are rarely an arms length from their smart phones, which provide them access -- sometimes unlimited -- to their favourite social networking sites.

    Checking your cellphone at din-ner was once considered rude, but with todays younger generation, its commonplace to be out at dinner with someone intermittently tinker-ing on their phone. Perhaps sharing or tweeting a photo of their most recent meal before they devour it.

    Is this the way it should be? Eyes plastered on your phone rather than the people youre spending time with?

    Whats the point in socializing with people if theyre having their own party through social media? You may as well be dining alone.

    Case and point, its more impor-tant than ever to be prudent when constructing your online persona in a web-based world.You never know who maybe looking.

    Crosswalks are dangerous

    OUR VIEW

    Okay, its time to say something.

    Last week, we almost got run over at the cross walk on Townsend Road. The driver of a large truck came within inches of wiping out a co-worker. The driver was so busy looking for an opportunity to get into the busy traffic on Sooke Road that she forgot to look at what was going on in front of her. She actually stepped on the gas when two people were in front of her bumper.

    Everyone who tries to walk through the town core takes their life in their hands everytime they have to cross the street. The four-way at Otter Point Road and Sooke/West Coast Road is a nightmare. The walk signal lasts only as long as it takes for a person to cross half-way before the no crossing hand comes up. And you

    cant cross at all in some spots. The drivers take the corners pretty sharp turning right onto West Coast Road or right onto Otter Point Road and you better not be sticking your feet, or baby carriage, too far out into the roadway. But, then its hard to tell where the sidewalk ends or starts and where the roadways are. Whos fault is it? The districts or the Ministry of Transports? Who cares, it needs to be upgraded. A little paint for visibility on the crosswalks wouldnt hurt either. Do the residents of Sooke have to wait until someone is seriously injured or killed before something is done?

    Lots of small towns have decent sidewalks. Why is it so difficult for Sooke to get a walkable, pedestrian-friendly town core?

    ... its hard to tell where the sidewalk ends or starts...

  • Firefighter survey

    The district is on a quest to find out what we can do to keep members enrolled in the volunteer program at the firehall.

    There is a survey circulating to ALL past and present members. This survey will ask what can be done to improve the system and tackle any issues that cause problems.

    We need participa-tion in this survey if we are to make positive changes and encourage membership.

    It is important we support this proud tra-dition, please take the time to fill out a survey.

    Memorial has vanished

    A five-year-old site where two young men lost their lives, once stood on a utility pole in Sooke, which now holds a sign for a craft fair. In the years gone by, the pole was shared by both.

    This site has become a part of our com-munity. It has been a teaching tool to thou-sands of our communi-tys young. It is a place where many friends, strangers and loved would go and hang hats, notes and flowers in remembrance.

    As many other road-side memorials that have become symbols

    of our communitys losses, they all are respected and should be preserved.

    Although this memo-rial site has been destroyed, it will be rebuilt to remind its community of its loss and to attempt to pre-vent further loss.

    If anyone knows of the whereabouts of the removed mementos, please return to the pole anonymously.

    Finding drama in Shirley

    Anyone who believes that the economic

    future of our entire area should rest in the hands of the core, navel-gaz-ing movers and shak-ers of Shirley, deserves the thunder storms of tumult, that inevitably follows.

    If one likes drama go to a Shirley meeting. If one wants conflict make a development proposal there, how-ever much an improve-ment it may be.

    Shirley is a remote community. Stubbornly remote. Improvements are unnecessary, as it is already perfect in Shir-ley.

    In fact, you can hear the quiet in Shirley, all the way to Sooke, in fact, all the way to the CRD in Saanich.

    want?No more than one

    Weather hard on homeless

    The Extreme Weather Emergency Shelters for homeless people in Sooke and Victoria discussed in the Sooke News Mirror on Oct. 31, page 6, should be open now, because the weather here is truly extreme from the onset of rains. In most of Can-ada dry autumns and winters enable people

    to stay warm relatively easily, but the damp-ness here is far worse than sub-zero tempera-tures. Up until the rains started I considered myself a Grey Nomad, one of those happy, retired people touring in camper vehicles, my home on wheels a sort of micro-mini van. But once the rains began I truly felt like a home-less person, which was far from a com-fortable feeling, espe-cially because I made the error in judgment of booking my win-ter flight to Maui Nov. 21 instead of Oct. 21. That judgment based on experience living in Metchosin 25 years ago for three winters when, it seems, we had a day or two of rain followed by a day or two of sun-shine.

    The weather here is not just hard on the homeless. I have lived across Canada in several provinces, and I have never seen a change so dramatic and sudden in the gen-eral population any-where as I saw here when the rains began.

  • 10 OPINION www.sookenewsmirror.com WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2012 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR

    That general popula-tion stopped smiling... depression was obvi-ous. Now, consider how extreme the situation is for the homeless. I can-not imagine how they have a hope of staying dry and healthy.

    This area is one of the wealthiest I have seen in Canada. For homeless shelters to be open only in Extreme Weather is cause for the general population here to wonder how Christian their Chris-tianity is, how Jew-ish their Jewishness, Islam the Islamists are, how humanitarian the humanists are, and how religious other members of religions are. We all need to do more.

    Leave a legacy

    As a taxpayer and naturalist, I agree with Corinne Bains whos letter Green space will be lost was published in the Oct. 24 issue of the Sooke News Mirror.

    The lands adjacent to the offices of the Dis-trict of Sooke are a nat-ural wildlife sanctuary

    within walking distance of every residence in the Sooke core.

    What a legacy to leave in the heart of Sooke for all genera-tions to come!

    Every year, white-fronted geese winter here and there are many other species of birds and other wildlife which can be viewed here as well. Young families can bring their children here to see salamanders and frogs, etc.

    If council wants to help the bike skills group, I respectfully submit that helping them acquire some land in another loca-tion (within bike riding distance) should be considered.

    Lets leave the green space as a sanctu-ary for wildlife for the enjoyment of all.

    Leave clocks alone

    This past weekend

    was the weekend we rolled back the clocks and it always seems to publicly come up about gaining an hours sleep in the fall, and los-ing one in the spring. Personally, Ive never understood that line of thinking at all.

    Though Im now reti-red, and dont set an alarm clock anymore, I spent 37 years in the work force and was never once affected by the seasonal changing of the clocks. I go to bed when Im tired, not when the clock strikes 10. Ive never lost or gained anything by the changing of the clocks, other than daylight.

    I feel for those who let the clock run their lives, but I admit that I just dont get it.

    Low usage equals price hikes

    Apparently the Greater Victoria Water board attended the same kindergarten

    school of business that BC ferries executives attended.

    When water usage or ferry ridership is down then it is time to raise the rates/fares again rather than encourage usage by lowering rates or at least maintaining the same costs.

    Unbelievably, a report from BC Fer-ries CEO Mike Corri-gan says that losing $16 million was good news as they had pre-dicted losing $20 mil-lion. In a similar tone, the deputy water com-missioner of the GVWD says that conservation is a good thing even as he raises your rates to cover that. Are you kid-ding me, did these guys actually go to school?

    The problem I have is not the increases in water costs or ferry fares. If the increases were actually deserved due to infrastructure, requirements or oper-ating expenses I could see the rationale, but clearly both of these groups are raising prices due to misman-agement, a flawed busi-ness model, and ulti-

    mately no regard for the users.

    The message to the water consumer is that conservation does not pay. In the last 15 years the Westshore popula-tion increased 14 per cent and water usage has declined 11 per cent yet they want to raise our rates? The message to the ferry users is to find alter-nate transportation or stay at home.

    BC Ferries reported losses of more than $16 million last year, with vehicle traffic on its ships at a 13-year low and passenger traffic at its lowest in 21 years.Mike Corrigan, BC Fer-ries president and CEO, said it could have been worse. The com-pany had actually fore-cast a $20-million loss at the start of the year, but company-wide cost-saving measures cut the final figure by $4 million. Now they want us to suck up another $26 million in cuts to ferry service.

    The Greater Victoria Water District reports that the Westshore might see sharper water-bill increases as water sales have not meet expectations.

  • SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2012 www.sookenewsmirror.com OPINION 11

    Hikes come even as the average homeowner is using less water. Users in the Westshore, includ-ing Langford, Colwood, View Royal, Sooke, Highlands, Metchosin, Sooke and East Sooke, could be facing an average rate increase of about $25.97 a year. The bulk of the West-shore increase is due to the fact that water sales there have not met bud-geted expectations.

    Maybe it is time to try and recruit people that know how to run a business, people that understand the margin between profit/loss and how to increase busi-ness without gouging the consumer.

    In my humble opin-ion, the people making the decisions for these corporations would not know how to balance a personal checkbook, yet they are being paid huge salaries.

    Facts on pipeline

    Yesterday, an article appeared online whichwas titled Awareness video tracks pipeline,talks to people, by Sooke News Mirror. Wewould like the opportu-nity to respond to thisarticle based on the facts.

    The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association represents Canadas transmission pipelinecompanies who operate approximately 110,000kilometres of pipelines in Canada. In 2011, ourmember companies moved approximately1.2 billion barrels of liq-uid petroleum productsand 5.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

    In the article, it states that diluted bitumen,or dilbit, is more caus-tic to pipelines and much more difficult

    and expensive to clean up than conventionalspills. This is not true. Our pipeline opera-tors transport a range of petroleum productsand have done so for years, including trans-porting diluted bitumen from the oil sands areaof Alberta. Based on an independent studycompleted by Alberta Innovates, there is no evidence to suggest that pipelines carry-ing diluted bitumen are more dangerous or cor-rosive than other types of petroleum products.

    The article also sug-gests that emergencyresponse plans are not developed to addressdiluted bitumen. Our member compa-nies have emergency response plans thattake into account dif-ferent product charac-teristics. These plans

    are activated as soon as the pipeline opera-tor becomes aware of the situation. They are also reviewed regularly by the regulators toensure they meet regu-latory requirements.

    We hope that this let-ter helps clarify someof the misinformation reported in your article.If you need further infor-mation on transport-ing diluted bitumen in pipelines or emergencyresponse, we have fact sheets available on ourwebsite at www.about-pipelines.com.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.If you have any further questions, please donot hesitate to contact me at 403 221 8778 orvia email at preicher@cepa.com.

    Get financial house in order first

    Proposed uses for John Phillips MemorialPark. Why did Mayor Milne give the SookeBike Club $3,600 of tax-payers money (plusanother $3,000 to the horseshoe group?) In fact, one Sooke council-lor actually offered theclub $50,000.

    If the bike club hasover 300 supporters/members as they claim,why doesnt each mem-ber contribute $15 (plusGST) to cover their own initial planning costs?

    The district currently has many more urgentfinancial obligations which should take priorityover bike parks and cov-ered horeseshoe pitches. Take, for instance, our

    seriously underfunded sewer system.

    Opportunities are plentiful in the tradesHere in British Colum-

    bia, skilled workers are needed in numerous sectors, with opportu-nities to be found both here at home and far-ther afield.

    The BC Jobs Plan 6 Month Progress Report recently noted, for example, that Seaspan Marine Corporations $8 billion contract to build non-combat ves-sels for the Canadian Coast Guard and the Royal Canadian Navy at their shipyards in North Vancouver and Esquimalt will provide long-standing jobs, directly and indirectly, for roughly 4,000 Brit-ish Columbians.

    Mila Puharich hopes to be part of this good news. Shes just start-ing her career but shes already forging uncharted territory as the first female metal fabricator in her work-place in more than 60 years.

    Im really truly the first woman theyve ever seen in the steel fitting trade there. They are welders, electri-cians and riggers, but Ive yet to meet another woman fitter.

    She also gets to hone her craft on all kinds of marine vehicles from boats, to ships, to sub-marines.

    For heavy duty mechanic Taylor Paul-son, inspired to follow his uncle into the trade, Camosun Colleges heavy-duty mechanic certificate program gave him everything he needed to launch his new career. The program was great. After 10 months in the classroom I was happy to start the hands-on stuff, the good stuff,

    says Taylor. I received grants for my program, which were a nice boost early on.

    Today, Paulson is working in Tumbler Ridge, in northern B.C., supporting the prov-inces booming mining industry. I make sure the mines are running smoothly: I diagnose and repair support trucks and equipment, sometimes Ill be on-site, and other times Ill have to do repairs at the shop. Im proud that I work here in B.C. its beautiful here, the hunting is fantastic, theres amazing hiking, a world-class snowmo-bile system and fresh river fishing, too.

    For Puharich, two programs were key in connecting her as a female metal fabrica-tor with her job: WITT or Women in Trades and STEP. WITT is geared towards help-ing employers in B.C. get the skilled workers they need by match-ing them with women who have some experi-ence, or who want to start a career, in the trades. STEP is a no-fee employment program

    that works to match potential workers with employers. They assist eligible people by pre-senting them with opportunities for train-ing and employment.

    Its no surprise Puharich gets excited when talking about WITT. The WITT pro-gram is awesome. Karen McNeil at Camosun is the goddess of appren-tices. She directed me to funding, grants and helped connect me to the STEP program. The support system there is like a trampoline, it just makes you go higher! STEP (then) helped get me the interview with Victoria Shipyards.

    To find out about these and other skills training programs visit https://www.workbc.ca/Education-Train-ing/Programs/Pages/Employment-Programs.aspx.

    Puharich continues with on-the-job training and additional courses, learning from mentors with the know-how to build more awesome boats, ships and yes, even submarines.

  • We want to welcome everyone to come out and join us this Satur-day, Nov. 17 for this months regular Cof-fee House evening at Holy trinity Anglican Church.

    We start, as always, with our fabulous and always unpredictable open stage and after the break our feature act, David Godkin with Rick Van Krugel on mandolin and Jake Gal-braith on bass.

    David Godkin first drew the attention of Vancouver Island music fans nearly seven years ago under the name David Kosub. A discovery about his true heritage (Scots-Irish) prompted David to change his name. A subsequent trip to Ireland to dig deeper into his ancestral roots found him playing in an old fashioned ceilidh band and re-commit-

    ting to his own brand of maritime ballad, folk and blues.

    The name may have changed but the ver-satile and memorable songs of this talented s i n g e r - s o n g w r i t e r remain the same. God-kins tunes are featured on his CD entitled From Away, filled with remi-

    niscences about his upbringing in Atlan-tic Canada, lost loves and the occasional tri-umphs of ordinary peo-ple he has met during his musical career.

    Godkin is joined on stage by mandolin player Rick Van Krugel and bassist Jake Gal-braith. Van Krugel is

    an entirely self-taught play-by-ear performer who perfected his style of mandolin years before the instrument got trendy. His straight-forwardly raw intuitive style is to be treasured in todays tech-ob-sessed culture. Having played over 45 years, he still loves nothing more

    than getting behind a good song.

    Jake Galbraith is a mainstay of the Van-couver Island music scene having anchored numerous groups such as Light Sweet Crude, The Clankies, Open Heart and Mandolirium (with Rick Van Krugel). His rock bottom bass lines and sweet vocal harmonies make him a genuine favourite of music fans everywhere.

    The goal for all three musicians: to entertain and uplift, tell simple stories about the down-trodden and misbegot-ten, about war and peace, friendship and love.

    Do join us for this evening of fine music. Doors open at 7 p.m. with open stage at 7:30 and our feature at 9.

    It all happens at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, 1962 Murray Road.

    Gone are the days of grandma in an utilitarian frumpy apron with her red hands in the sink. These days aprons are high fashion and grandma has a dishwasher.

    Sophisticated aprons are hot ticket items. Not only are they a practical way to protect your clothing, they are really useful.

    Toya Jacobson makes aprons under the label, Aprons for the Domestic Goddess.

    About three years ago, she and a friend who is an artist were trying to come up with some money making ideas.They thought about starting a market store, but her friend never got started and Jacob-son did. Shes been sitting behind the sewing machine ever since and selling her high

    end aprons at craft markets.People want a sophis-

    ticated glam look, said Jacobson. I use fabrics you wouldnt expect to see in an apron thats what people wanted.

    Jacobson never wore aprons before she started making them. Now she uses them when she cleans. She incorporated a towel in the body of the apron because, as she said, everyone wipes their hands.

    Jacobson will be selling her aprons, some with matching rubber gloves, at the All Sooke Arts & Crafts Fair, Nov. 23-25 at the Sooke Community Hall.

    Her product line includes aprons for men. A popular style is one which is black and red with a bit of a Scot-tish plaid.

    She sells about about 300 aprons a year as gifts. The

    prices range from $30 to $45 for the mens aprons (which are more work to make). The matching rubber gloves run at $15.

    They are gifts wonder-ful gifts, said Jacobson. You might as well have fun if you have to cook and clean.

    She said she has a friend with a B&B who loves the aprons because she doesnt have to think about what to wear to serve breakfast to her guests.

    You can entertain and still look good, she said.

    Jacobson is the volunteer co-ordinator with the Sooke Hospice and leads a busy life. She would, at some point, love to make clothing out of upcy-cled materials, but for now shes sticking to Aprons for the Domestic Goddess.

    Moon TanningAuthor: Gwynn

    Davies152 pages. Hardcover

    and paperbackPublished by Xlibris

    Corporation

    Gwynn Davies is a fanatic. His whole world seems wrapped up in motorcycles, parts, repairs and of course, hitting the open road.

    In his book Moon Tanning, Davies takes the reader to work with him. One learns about all of the char-acters he works with in a motorcycle repair shop in a small town in British Columbia. It is not about hogs and Harleys as much as it is about the luxury BMW motorcycles.

    For anyone who is a motorcycle fanatic this book might grease your gears and rev your engine. It is a bit heavy in motorcycle jargon and lingo but it is well-written and the author could have a future in writing if he were to broaden his scope. Five years in the making, Moon Tanning is Davies first novel and self-pub-lished by Xlibris. He is planning another book, but this time, he said, it wont be so motor-cyclist.

    Born in Manitoba, Davies spent a few

    years as a missionary child in Zaire. He is well travelled, having adven-tures through Asia, Rus-sian, Europe and other amazing locations. He is a well-trained motor-cycle mechanic and adventurer who enjoys a number of other out-door sports and inter-ests.

    An excerpt from the book:

    Albert, Harry, and I were the three mis-matched mechanics of the shop. We caused trouble in the small motorcycle dealership located in the town of Evangel, British Colum-bia. Our captors held us there for nine hours a day minimum, even through the rain and snow. This story takes place in a time without war, with a lack of con-cern for the environ-ment, and when you could go full throttle on

    your motorcycle with no regard for the law. I remember it as if it only happened yesterday.

    Davies will be hold-ing a book signing at the Reading Room bookstore on Saturday, Nov. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    Living Artfully: Reflections from the Far West Coast

    Anita Skinner and Christine Lowther, Edi-tors

    Key Publishing House Inc.

    242 pages, soft cover

    Forty-three artistic minds have contrib-uted their reflections on living on B.C.s west coast. From the small islands to the larger, each author speaks of how and why they came to live along the coast. Their stories are all different but there is a common thread bind-ing them all together their love of the coast.

    They each tell stories of how they are inspired

    to create and how the islands shape their reality forcing them to become grounded on the rocky shores and grow roots which are both tangible and psy-chological. The stories are familiar to any of us who have moved from our inland homes to the shores on the edge of Canada.

    Author and editor of this anthology, East Sooke resident Anita Skinner, in her contri-bution 48 37 N123 68 W talks about three women who helped shape her appreciation for the creative minds and souls living on the edge of the rainforest. Her friendship with Eliz-abeth, Mrs. Dixie and Barb remains threaded in who she is. These women exemplify the artful spirit which is so prevalent on the shores of the West Coast. They will also be recogniz-able to locals in the Sooke area.

    Co-editor Christine Lowther is a published author living in Tofino who welcomes the

    foul weather which makes her grounded and undistracted in her writing. She says writ-ers are isolated and she has found her solitude in that coastal commu-nity. She says in her story, A Beautiful Impo-sition, in my experi-ence, west coast places cause art. They demand expression. So it is with all of the contribu-tors in this anthology, they demand expres-sion and the editors have given them voice.

    Living Artfully works two ways. It gives the writers creative voice

    and it gives the reader a small glimpse into the artists eye the win-dows to their souls. It inspires.

    Living Artfully: reflec-tion from the Far West Coast is available at the South Shore Gallery on Otter Point Road in Sooke.

    Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

    SEAPARC employee Jacklyn Evans, 26, has been brightening up the leisure centre with colourful and elaborate murals for the past five years.

    I get tons and tons of people just saying how it brightens it up in here and it just adds life to the place, Evans said.

    Throughout the year, Evans will complete between three to four large murals and about 10 smaller artworks. The larger works are usually painted along windows surrounding the pool area.

    She is the master-mind behind each design, which, depend-

    ing on the size, can take up to 40 hours to plan.

    The idea starts on paper, where the murals features are carefully mapped out.

    Usually Ill just come

    up with a theme and just start building off of that theme, Evans said, adding the themes are usually holiday-related or generic.

    Some of the themes

    Evans has whipped up include an underwater theme, featuring char-acters from childhood favourites like the Little Mermaid, Shark Tales and Finding Nemo.

    And a space theme that featured all of the planets and every-bodys favourite lonely robot, Wall-e.

    Evans then single-handedly draws the design with a dry-erase marker onto the window and paints the artwork.

    She started doing the intricate paintings

    on her own time, and was soon after allotted hours by SEAPARC to continue doing murals for upcoming events and seasons.

    Although clearly talented, Evans, who works professionally as a life guard and swimming and fitness instructor, has no his-tory with art.

    I didnt really know I could paint, but then I just tried it and could, she laughed.

    I love it, its so much fun.

  • A review of Alice in Wonderland Jr.

    As the lights dim at Edward Milne com-munity theatre, youre probably thinking that the show will be not bad. Disney, all children, so it will be cute, right? After all, half of the cast is between 5 and 10, so you shouldnt expect too much. You might also be thinking that even with lots of enthu-siasm and a skilled pro-duction team, most of the cast have never performed before so theyll try hard, but lets not get our hopes up. Right? At $12 a ticket for all ages, you should only expect marginal entertainment. Right?

    Wrong. The show opens

    with a bright, vibrant presence of young tal-ent, all smiles and smooth, coordinated movement. The vocals, largely dominated by the chorus, are strong and cheerful; and yes, with perfect pitch and enunciation.

    One of the many pleasant surprises with Alice in Wonderland Jr. is the mind-blowing skill of the principals. Caitlin Thompson, Kate Robertson and Nona Robertson (small, nor-mal and tall Alices) are brilliant, who carry the perfect demeanour for the production.

    Angel Fitzner, Grant Lewers and Hannah Gei-sler-Magnus (Cheshire Cats) have the perfect mixture of slyness and fun that keep the pro-duction moving for-

    ward. Tyler Scheubel (White Rabbit) hits the high notes with impec-cable accuracy while adding the right amount of frantic energy dur-ing his opening solo. Mercer Balzer (Mad Hatter) is absolutely hilarious, and times his antics perfectly during his first appearance in the famous Tea Party scene.

    Vanessa Drmla and Courtney Schutt (Twee-dle Dee and Tweedle Dum) are appropriately silly, and Arran Was-Little (King of Hearts) gives a performance rich with sincerity as he tries desperately not to upset Johanne Thompson (Queen of Hearts). Jamila Parkin-son (Caterpillar) has amazing vocal prowess and energy.

    Alex Bidner (The March Hare) gives the air of a performer with years of experience, and Carina Strong (Door-knob) is beyond ador-able. Sammy Radlfin-ger (Do Do Bird) has impressive stage pres-ence, and a winning smile that will win you over instantly. Kierra Balzer, Raven Van Net-ten and Shale Rain-shadow (Violet, Rose and Lily) are also note-able through their con-fident movements and humorous badgering of Alice during Golden Afternoon.

    If you missed open-ing weekend, tickets are still available for Nov. 16 18, with Fri-day performances at 7 p.m. and Saturday/Sun-day matinees at 2 p.m..

    Colourful sets, great music, excellent cho-reography and fantas-tic vocals are all part

    of this show that will leave you smiling, clap-ping and singing along. The new generation of talent within our com-munity has made their

    mark, and you want to be a part of this magical experience! Next stop Wonderland!

    TThe he PPastor's astor's PPenenThe Art of Respect

    "Respect your elders." How many times I heard that growing up! I knew I should, but I didn't always want to. In those days a great deal of effort was given to teach me respect for family members, teachers, and other signi cant adults. As a teenager, I confess, I didn't always give respect inwardly, but I usually tried

    to show it outwardly. Joseph was a teenager when his jealous brothers sold him to Ishmaelite

    traders who took him to Egypt and sold him to Potiphar, a member of Pharaoh's personal staff. Noticing his responsible nature, Potiphar soon elevated him to ruler of his entire estate. But Joseph had a problem. He was well-built and his physique soon caught the eye of his boss's wife who invited him to indulge in immoral sexual activities. Joseph refused.

    His refusal incurred scorn and false accusations, resulting in another trip to jail, but not before he had a chance to demonstrate his respect for respect. Even though Joseph worked for a foreign ruler he respected his authority over him. He could have easily covered up an affair with Potiphar's wife, but she was off-limits. Joseph even respected her in spite of her immoral enticements.

    Joseph respected right and wrong and what God established in each category.

    When I was a teen, respect for authority was in short supply, and I've noticed that the supply continues to dwindle. Breaking the cycle requires action from parents, grandparents, teachers, government of cials, and everyone in general. Respect can be contagious, but to be caught, it must be taught.

    Will you, like Joseph, take a stand, even if no one else does?

    Pastor Gordon Kouwenberg

  • and then to the posi-tion of woods foreman, the couple decided to make Jordan River their permanent home. They bought a water-front house facing out to a view of the pound-ing breakers that roll in from the Strait. Norma loved cooking and her house became a gath-ering place for young-sters. As well, with Norma as helpmate and cheer leader, Bob took a leadership role in coaching sports and driving teams to inter-community games. This meant Jordan River kids could participate in many sports, espe-cially minor hockey and softball.

    By the time Bob retired in 1987, the com-pany had gone through name changes of CPS, Alaska Pine and Cellu-lose, and Rayonier, and eventually to Western Forest Products Ltd. His long service meant a big Western Forest Products party on his retirement, held at the

    Sooke Legion. Bob and Norma took advantage of their new opportu-nity to travel together, visiting throughout Canada and flying to Hong Kong.

    One of the remark-able attributes of Norma Lajeunesse was her ability to remain positive throughout dif-ficulties, demonstrating good cheer, kindness and understanding. Though she and Bob had suffered the pain of serious accidents affecting their family, they both remained a source of strength and encouragement to all throughout their lives.

    Their grandchildren were a special joy to them both, and the whole family enjoyed their get-togethers at their summer place alongside the Sooke River. Normas zest for life is shown in the photo demonstrat-ing that even a Harley didnt faze her.

    When Bobs pass-ing left her alone in 1996, Norma remained at their Jordan River

    beachfront home in the quiet community until her own health deterio-rated, when she went into Eagles Bluff Lodge. She enjoyed the com-panionship of longtime friends at the facility. More recently she was a resident of Ayre Manor where she passed away Oct. 13.

    Predeceased as well by her brother Elmer Stolth, her sister Elea-nor Arden and her daughter, Alexis, Norma leaves her daughter Leslie (Bob), her sons Mark (Coleen); Dana, Lance (Deb) grand-children Cindy (Kyle) Chelsea, Kyle and Cody, great grandchil-dren Togan and Matea, daughters-in-law Cathy and Lorraine. She also leaves sister-in-law Gail (Gordon Hall) brother-in-law Danny Lajeu-nesse and many nieces and nephews. Family services have been held.

    A local Shirley man will be competing in the Tough Mudder World Championships, an event that has been touted as, probably the toughest event on the planet.

    Justin Gilbertson, 31, was invited to par-ticipate in the Tough

    Mudder World Cham-pionships on Nov. 17 after participating in the Whistler event this May.

    In the Whistler event, Gilbertson, along with 17,000 other partici-pants, trekked through muddy mountains, jumped into glacier waters, ran through electric wires charged with 10,000 volts, and crawled underneath barbed wire.

    He completed the 18 kilometre distance course in one hour and

    47 minutes, earning him a qualifying spot at the Tough Mudder World Championships. Only the top five per cent of competitors are selected.

    One of the reasons I actually like Tough Mud-der is even though its a sporting event, its not meant to be competi-tive, youre meant to be helping one another,

    Gilbertson said. Its the only event Ive ever done where you can actually be disqualified for not helping a fellow competitor.

    The hogde-podge of physically demanding obstacles is also what entices Gilbertson to challenge his body and mental grit.

    Although the hard-core sporting event may be harrowing for some, Gilbertson did not find it insurmount-able.

    I honestly didnt

    find it as difficult as I thought it would be. Its supposed to be one of the most extreme events that you could possibly do. That being said they do have to make it so that people who arent as physi-cally fit or athletic can complete the course, he said, adding that some obstacles, how-ever, were ridiculously challenging.

    Gilbertson, who located to the Sooke area about seven years ago, said the region is perfect terrain to train for the Tough Mudder events.

    Im lucky that I live out in the Sooke area. I live out in Shirley so... where I live basically is what a course looks like -- theres cold water, theres forests, [and] theres mountains to run up and down.

    He has been training for the World Cham-pionships for the past six months. The event takes place in rural New Jersey, and will last over a 24-period.

    The event will search for the toughest man, woman and four-person group in the world.

    Individual competi-tors vying for the top title will have to com-plete the most laps of a 13 to 16 kilometre

    course within the allot-ted time frame.

    The course is not unveiled until the day of the event, but Gilbert-son expects the typical obstacles like running through fire, climbing suspended cargo nets and ice-water courses.

    Gilbertson, who works as a traditional blacksmith by day, said he has always been ath-letic. At one point, he even played golf profes-sionally.

    Ive been involved in athletics since I was young, he said. Ive always just continued to do sports no matter where Ive been in the world.

    He is also a vegan athlete, and has been an activist on behalf of vegan athletes for the past 10 years.

    Ive done vegan activism in 50 countries the last 10 years and one of the things I talk about is that this diet doesnt really restrict you from being athletic or doing anything of that nature, Gilbertson said.

    Going up against some of the toughest mudders in the world at the championships, Gilbertson said his goal is to complete five to six laps.

    Lions send kids to poolSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    The Sooke Lions Club is once again funding introductory swimming lessons for all Grade 2

    students in Sooke. According to Al Bed-

    dows, Lions immediate past district governor, the program began over 10 years ago in response to teenage deaths at the Sooke

    Potholes. We thought that if

    you teach the kids at Grade 2, which seemed to be the optimal time to teach them how to swim, that when they became older they

    would have the skills to save their own lives.

    The Lions supplied around $6,000 to local elementary schools for the program this year. They do not play a role in co-ordinating the

    program. When we do some

    of these programs, we really dont want to get in the day-to-day man-aging of it. Well just fund it and leave it up to the professionals, Beddows said.

    They arrange for buses, pay SEAPARC, and they take the kids down there for swim-ming lessons through the course of the year.

    Beddows added the

    Lions hope to continue the program into the future, funding permit-ting.

    We believe in this program and every year we get some really nice feedback from the kids.

    Thats in our man-date, to help the young people of our commu-nity. And thats money raised in Sooke and we spend it here.

    The Lions also fund programming to send students from Port Renfrew swimming and skating in Sooke.
