    A police cruiser is parked at a residence where a womans body was discovered on Sunday, July 20.

    The public is not at risk, say Sooke RCMP after a womans body was discovered on a quiet residential street in Sooke.

    RCMP received a call at around 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 20, of a deceased woman in a house on the 2200 block of French Road. Pamella Dyer, 64, was found dead in her Sooke home.

    There is no one in custody in regard to the suspected homi-cide at this point. The death is being treated as suspicious and the neighbours are being

    canvassed.Thirty-six-year-old

    Michael James McCor-mick, Dyers son was arrested Sunday night. He is charged with one count of uttering threats against his ex-girlfriends boyfriend and remains in police custody.

    Police would not confirm that he is a suspect in his mothers death, although neigh-bours have said police have been called to the house several times in the past month. McCor-mick suffered from addiction and mental health problems say

    some of those who knew Dyer and he had spent time in jail.

    The investigation into the cause of death is being done by the Sooke RCMP, the Van-couver Island Major Crime Section, and the BC Coroners office.

    Dyer was the bar manager at the Legion in Sooke for many years. She retired three or four years ago. Dyer had attended Esqui-malt secondary school.

    grow op facilities bylaw goes to third readingPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Two public hearings were held at the Juan de Fuca Local Area Services building on Wednesday, July 16.

    At issue were two bylaws, Bylaw 3922 and 3929, which dealt with definitions of Medical Marijuana Licenced Producer and to define and regulate marijuana production facilities in both Otter Point and Port Renfrew.

    The intent is to define and regulate marijuana production facilities as Intensive Agriculture - Medical Marijuana on lands with the Agricul-tural Land Reserve.

    The actual Bylaw will be reviewed to deter-

    mine specifically how particular lands may be affected,

    There were only three people who came forward to ask questions of the bylaw amendment.

    Currently there is an application in for a grow-op and process-ing facility in the indus-trial park in Otter Point. The facility will not be a drive-to dispensary, any medical marijuana will be sent out to the customer. Everything is accountable to the government. The facil-ity could employ up to 10 people and intensely strict security will be in place. Criminal record checks, security cam-eras monitoring every-thing and every square

    inch, intensive reports, safety features, types of clothing, etc. Every single scrap off the marijuana plants are accounted for as is the amount shipped from the facility.

    Both bylaws will go before the CRD Board on July 23 for third reading.

    Did you know? The largest known Western Red cedar canoe in

    the world today, KWA Q YUK, was created right here in Sooke by carvers of the TSou-ke Nation, in the early-1990s.

    The Honourable Judith Guichon Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia graced Sooke with her presence on the morning of July 19 to commemorate the 150th year of the founding of Leechtown with the unveiling of a new monument at the Kampoor Regional Park Reserve (for-merly a part of Leechtown).

    The Vancouver Island Placer Min-ers Association (VIPMA) committed to construct a new monument for Leechtown, about 3.5 years ago, as the old one exists on private land, is dilapidated and is not available to the general public. In partnership with CRD Parks, CRD Water Shed, VIPMA started the process of re-con-necting with potential stake holders to resurrect a new monument. Rep-resenting VIPMA were Bruce Chaytor as chair, Bart van Den Berk, co-chair and Donna Chaytor, coordinator of the event.

    In attendance were Wendal Milne, the mayor of Sooke, Chief Gordon Planes, of the TSou-ke Nation, Elder Shirley Alphonse, and a long list of representatives from various histori-cal associations.

    On Saturday, the years of planning came to pass. After several brief pre-sentations, a new commemorative monument was unveiled by Her Hon-our Judith Guichon and VIPMA chair Bruce Chaytor.

    The Honourable Judith Guichon

    addressed the crowd with a lovely poem by Robert Service, and shared memories her time in the Yukon and her connection to gold.

    Bart van den Berk author of the recently released The History of Leechtown Part 1, had his daughter Laura present a copy of his book to Her Honour. The book is based on the authentic journals and letters of the Vancouver Island Exploring Expe-dition on the discovery of gold.

    On hand was Fred Zarelli, the eldest person with knowledge of the Leech-town area. Also in attendance was special guest, Beverly Smith who was born in Leechtown in the early 1940s.

    Leechtown has a long his-tory which was started with the announcement of payable gold, and was followed by many diverse people and ways of life in the past 150 years. Leechtown and the area has always had a way to stay in the hearts of people as a special place, and as such deserves the recognition of a bit of special attention for her 150th Commemoration.

    Celebrations continued into the afternoon at the Sooke Regional Museum, which included outdoor events, music, food, and some very fine beverages. Her Honour Judith Guichon toured the Sooke Region Museum for about 30 minutes with the museums executive director Lee Boyko and president of the Sooke Historical Society Ray Vowles.

    I was driving out to East Sooke last Sunday and a doe and her twins ran across the road. The last baby had a broken leg and my heart just sank. It was get-ting left behind and I knew what that meant. I called my partner who got in touch with Wild Arc. Well you guessed it, there real-ly was nothing they could do. I have also noticed a lot of large bucks around with large antlers still growing. Please be careful and slow down many of us call them hoofed rodents but they are beautiful!

    Port Renfrew on the brink of discoveryBritt SantowskiSooke News Mirror

    Port Renfrew. On first glance, it appears to be an accidental splatter of about 200 surfers, fishermen, and tree huggers all living in an unorganized sprawl. Which is to say that theres no downtown per se, although there is a school, business cen-tre, store and library. Here, and there, and over yonder. It is also home to the Pacheed-aht First Nation, who according to Aboriginal Affairs have 121 mem-bers living on reserve lands in Port Renfrew, with a total registered population of 268.

    Anyway you cut it, the numbers are small.

    But if you lift that up just a tiny corner of that lazy hazy blanket, you might just discover a vibrant, growing com-munity that is at the brink of being discov-ered by the outside world.

    According to Karl Ablack, the Director/Sales of Live Port Ren-frew, its a community ready to explode into a fully fledged profitable tourism town.

    Were on the preci-pice, said Ablack, and things are going to really begin to catapult within the next two years.

    As far as popula-tion growth, Ablack sees the opportunity for telecommuters, remote labourers (as in Fort MacMurray), and young families inter-ested in capitalizing in one of the remain-ing affordable places on the island to buy a home. VancouverIs-land.com puts the pop-

    ulation at 190. And theres work to

    be had too, albeit sea-sonal.

    If you want work, come up here, said Rosie Betsworth, refer-encing the many sea-son opportunities in the tourism industry. Betsworth is the for-mer president of Port Renfrews chamber of commerce, business woman, and currently works with Ablack on the Live Port Renfrew project.

    Theres a lot of need for trades up here, said Ablack, referenc-ing the last few years of development seen in their community.

    The tourism industry appears to be booming.

    Ive got rental cabins. Were sitting at about 85 - 87 per cent occupancy for the summer, said Betsworth. This is the best summer weve had so far, and I think its just because Renfrew is finally on the map. Betsworth refers to the glossy Port Renfrew flier that lists over 25 accom-modations, over 10 fish-ing charters, and camp-sites, marinas, restau-rants, stores and other businesses in town.

    People are coming

    faster than the services are, observed Dan Hager, president of Port Renfrews Chamber of Commerce. Hager is also a member of the Live Port Renfrew group.

    Key to the growth in the tourism industry in Port Renfrew, speculate all three, is the com-pletion of the Pacific Marine Circle Route (complete in 2009). The construction of the Sombrio Bridge #1 has also helped straighten the road, making it less hazardous to travel. In total, over $20 million in improvements have tremendously benefit-ted the little town of Port Renfrew.

    A 2012 pamphlet from the Port Renfrew Development Fund speculated that some of the interest might be driven by the devel-opment of an iron ore mine near Port Ren-frew, known as the Pearson Project. A 2013 document from the B.C. Ministry of Energy and Mines reports, Recon-naissance work began in 2013 and the Minis-try of Mines is process-ing a Notice of Work that includes drilling. The vendor, Pacific Iron

    Ore Corp published an inferred resource for the Bugaboo Creek area in 2011 consisting of 14.3 million tonnes averaging 60% magne-tite at a cut off of 20% magnetite.

    The Pacific Iron Ore Corporations web-site reports that as of March 31, 2011, the Pearson Project had 285 claims on Van-couver Island cover a combined 170,648 hect-ares. These are split 266 claims and 162,420 hectares for the Port Renfrew Block and 19 claims and 8,228 hect-ares on the unexplored northern claims.

    Our requests for comment to the Pacific Iron Ore Corporation went unanswered, so there is no confirma-tion or denial of a pos-sible mine in the Port Renfrew vicinity.

    But whatever the driving force, the recent road improvements are indeed driving many tourists to Port Ren-frew, say the three from the Live Port Renfrew project.

    Which has in turn created a very fur-tive environment from business start-ups. The opportunities may

    exist for those willing to take a chance.

    Be forewarned though, the entrepre-neurial gains wont be instant, said Hager.

    Theyre not going to make money like that, says Hager, snapping his fingers to make the point. They have to go in with some cash and get set up. And sit there and wait. Because they are coming.

    And according to this group, they have already been found by tourists. By many, locally and from afar. And business has been year-round. Hager co-owns Handsome Dan cottages together with France Turcotte. Business is booming, year round, at the cot-tages. Hager estimates that over the winter months, they are at 70 per cent capacity.

    But for all its antici-pated growth, its magic is in the wilderness. Port Refrew is the gate-way to many hiking trails, freshwater and ocean fishing, surfing, kayaking and canoing, crabbing, whale watch-ing and bird watching. There are a number of beaches for day trips and camping. And Port Renfrew is also home to the Davey Derby and the Tall Tree Festival.

    Betsworth, Ablack and Hager all see a clear opportunity for Port Renfrew to position itself as a natural desti-nation similar to Tofino, but much, much closer. Its pristine wilderness sits at the doorsteps of Victoria, only about two hours away.

    Its raw, unfil-tered nature, said Betsworth. People get a chance to relax out here.

    The wilderness is what Port Renfrew is all about.

    Charles King house in Saseenos

    Its hard to see clearly in this 1927 photo, but on the porch facing Sooke Road are three figures, each impor-tant in our history. When I drive by I notice the house still stands today, on the upland side of the road in Sas-eenos, and it seems like the current owners may have recently done fur-ther alterations.

    On the porch are John Murray, Marga-ret King and her father Charles King. Were not sure what year the house was built, but the acreage was purchased in the mid-1920s, by Charles King of Otter Point, soon after the 1,000 acre sub-division of Saseenos was developed for sale in 1920/21.

    Charles King, an English gardener and orchardist, had arrived in Otter Point in about 1898 (think King Road). In 1903 his sweetheart by correspondence, Jane Camp, came out to join him in their Otter Point log cabin. Middle-aged when she arrived, Mrs. King was in deli-cate health after giv-ing birth to a daughter Fanny Margaret in 1907. Jane King passed away when baby Margaret was three, and the little girl went to live with the Murrays (think Mur-ray Road). Mrs. Mur-ray had recently retired as matron of the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Vic-toria and married Scot-tish immigrant John Murray, who served as a local Justice of the

    Peace. Childless them-selves, the couple was devoted to the little girl.

    By the 1920s Charles King had left Otter Point and was trying out life in sunny Sasee-nos. His acreage was dissected by the gulley which carried Saseenos Creek, and he built a curved wooden bridge to join the two halves of the property (it backed onto Blythwood), plant-ing fruit trees and rows of raspberrries for the Victoria market.

    After the passing of Charles King, the cot-tage was home to his daughter Margaret and her new husband, Dan-ish immigrant Kai Jen-sen, who had married in 1929. Before long the young couple had sold and moved to larger

    property to run a dairy farm a bit further east on Saseenos Creek. Families that I recall living in this cottage in the following years included the Learys, the Jenners, and the Philip Paskins. By the 1980s the cottage was home to retired federal diplomat Murray Cook and his wife.

    Almost 90 years since it was built by a carpenter neigh-bor, William Dempster Brown, this house has seen many additions including a basement, and it has surely seen almost a century of good healthy country living as well.

    9:30 am Bible Study 11:00 am Church ServicePastor: Mike Stevenson

    In the world today there is an increasing diversity in the source of learning for ethics and values. This, of course, is a factor which accompanies a diverse and culturally varied community.

    Since the 1950s one of the most powerful in uencers of culture and values has been the television. Broadcast into our homes at any given moment is a plethora of visual and aural opinions of what is and what is not important to us.

    I know that many people say they dont really listen or accept what is said through this medium, but the fact of the matter is that, subtly and consistently, our worldview is not only in uenced, but changed through the window of television. What once was described as common knowledge is no longer common, due to the many differing sources of information. Increasingly it is the opinion of the reporters rather than the actual facts that are being expressed.

    The Psalm of our day has become:

    The TV is my Shepherd; I shall not want. It makes me lie down on the sofa. It leads me away from the Bible, It destroys my soul. It leads me in the paths of sex and violence, For the sponsors sake. Yea, though I walk in the shadow of my Christian responsibilities, There will be no interruptions; For the TV is with me. Its cable and its remote control-- They comfort me. It prepares a commercial before me, In the presence of my worldliness. It anoints my head with humanism. My coveting runs over. Surely laziness and ignorance shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house watching TV forever.

    You may think this bit of satire does not relate to you, but do not fool yourself! No longer can we say, You are what you eat but we can de nitely declare, You are what you watch!

    Perhaps it is time for us to seriously look at what our true source of teaching and value is. If we spent as much time reading the Bible as we spent watching television, would we have the opinions we do? Would we think differently? Would our worldview be the same?Pastor Gordon Kouwenberg

  • June brought the end of what seemed a very long session of Parlia-ment, especially since the Conservatives forced sittings to mid-night every night for the last month. They also set a new record for cutting off debate by using time alloca-tion 75 times in the last session.

    As soon as Parliament adjourned the Conser-vatives started making announcements in the hope of escaping scru-tiny during Question Period in the House of Commons. Several of these announcements will have big impacts locally. Hot on the heels of adjournment came Jason Kennys reforms to the Tem-porary Foreign Workers Program. Previously the Conservatives had argued there was noth-ing wrong with a pro-gram that had brought nearly 450,000 tempo-rary workers into the country and left them vulnerable to exploi-tation by unscrupu-lous employers, not to mention the programs impact on keeping ser-

    vice sector wages low and making it hard for young Canadians to get entry level jobs. Ken-neys changes prom-ise to cut the number of future temporary workers in half, but will not displace those who already came here under the program in good faith.

    Just after adjourn-ment we also learned that the Harper gov-ernment has cut the funding to the Path-way Youth Employ-ment Project on the Westshore. This is an extremely successful program for getting at risk youth into jobs or back into school, something that hap-pened over 90 per cent of the time over the 13 years it has been oper-ating. When you think of the loss of potential for these youth and the future social costs asso-ciated with the failure to meet their needs, this program is a bar-gain. I issued a press release expressing my concerns about the canceling of this proj-ect and I also wrote to the Minister asking that

    this bad decision be overturned.

    June marks the beginning of what some call Pride season in Canada with events stretching across the country throughout the summer. This year Toronto hosted World Pride and the World Pride Human Rights Conference. I was hon-oured to be asked to chair a session at the conference and to be part of what was prob-ably the largest and most diverse LGBTQ human rights gathering ever. I am disappointed to report that the Con-servatives in the Senate are continuing to block my Private Member`s Bill C -279, the bill that would close the gap in Canadas human rights record by guaranteeing equal rights for trans-gender Canadians.

    Just days before MPs left Ottawa the Con-servatives announced their unpopular deci-

    sion to approve the Northern Gateway Pipeline.That day I was proud to stand with NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and all 12 of our BC NDP MPs at a live news conference to express our unani-mous opposition to the Northern Gateway project. As most of you know I have long been an opponent of expanding pipelines for oil export and the resulting increase in tanker traffic on our wild west coast. These pipeline projects not only threaten our local environment and exist-ing sustainable jobs in tourism and fishing, but they also represent a stubborn failure to rec-ognize the urgent need to begin the transition to a low carbon econ-omy now.Let me wish all of you a happy and active summer. Have a great summer!

    Public safety should be the #1 priority

    Sooke is no longer the sleepy little town where you can leave your doors unlocked and know your vehicle wont be ransacked for spare change. We have crime here.

    Two deaths in the past two years have made their way onto the pages of newspapers and in both cases, it appears that mental health issues were contributing factors. We can provide medication to those who need it, but we cant force them to take them. Thats where our system fails. Human rights and liberties supercede public safety in many cases. Our mental health system is overwhelmed with people in need and there are fewer and fewer resources available. There is no place for some of these people to go and they end up on the streets or back at their parents homes. No parent will deny helping their child, even if they are in danger.

    When is the government going to realize that turning people with severe mental health problems out into society is like giving them a ticking time bomb? When will the health system recognize their responsibility to all of us? Its not just about money, its about assessing those who are at risk and putting everyone in a safe zone. There has to be a way to deal with those with mental health issues, and addictions whether they are alcohol or drug related. Because of this we have more property crime, homelessness and threats. It doesnt have to be the way it is and it could change if there was the will from government. Its a real shame.

    On another note, the recent incidents along isolated roads around Sooke of men trying to get women into cars serves as a warning. Pay attention to what is going on around you. Dont put yourself in harms way and report anything suspicious.

    Sooke is still an amazing place and it is safe for the most part, its just important to use common sense and to watch out for each other.

    ANOTHER VIEW

    When British Columbians call 9-1-1 to seek emergency medical assistance, they do so because they are experiencing a situation that requires an immediate response beyond their own capabilities. Fire-fighters, as the first responders in BC, are generally first on-scene and provide medical and scene manage-ment support until paramedics are able to respond.

    Last fall BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) made changes to how it allocates its resources by having ambulances respond to cer-tain medical calls in a routine or non-priority manner as opposed to previous designation of emergency or lights and sirens. The BC Ambu-lance Service (BCAS) argued these changes contained in the Resource Allocation Plan (RAP) were neces-sary to improve response times for those patients with the most urgent medical needs.

    At the BCPFFA, were calling this move what it really is: the Ambu-lance Services scramble, as directed by the BCEHS, to manage a short-age of available ambulances and paramedics. The BCPFFA is strongly opposed to these changes and sup-ports the call for more ambulances and paramedics.

    As any emergency worker can tell you, once a call is downgraded to non-priority from emergency, the timeline to get to the incident changes. Our members have seen a number of cases where patients in distress (heavy bleeding, head inju-ries, spinal injuries and loss of con-

    sciousness) are being considered non-priority, leading to increasingly longer response times by ambu-lances, which we find simply unac-ceptable.

    Since these changes were qui-etly implemented last fall, firefight-ers across the province are notic-ing much longer wait times for para-medics to arrive at an incident. In an increasing number of cases the wait for an ambulance can be between 40 and 50 minutes longer than before the protocol changes. Is this what you expect when you call 9-1-1?

    One of the biggest obstacles pro-fessional firefighters encounter in serving the needs of their communi-ties is the inability for simultaneous dispatch, where 9-1-1 operators can send what the system views as an appropriate level of response. Fire is dispatched only when certain cri-terion is met or after its determined that an ambulance is unavailable to respond as required. Critical min-utes are lost in this process, and timely on-scene assessment and patient care is being compromised.

    In our view, operators should be sending on-duty trained firefight-ers to determine the level of patient care needed and granting them the authority to upgrade or downgrade the level of response required by ambulance. No matter how skilled 9-1-1 operators are, only trained responders on scene can effectively prioritize patient care for the best possible results.

    In Canada, the standards for emergency medical response are

    less than nine minutes in nine out of 10 calls, or in the 90th percentile. BCAS chooses to report only aver-age response times, which in our view is not a true reflection of how emergency responses should be dis-closed.

    The North American standards are much higher, at four to six min-utes for most medical emergent calls. BCEHS targets 12 minutes, and meets that goal 52 percent of the time for the highest priority calls. Prior to the recent RAP changes, first responders attended 35 percent of medical calls.

    By changing its response to 74 of 868 call types, including downgrad-ing 39 to non-priority, BCEHS is con-doning a delayed response to the emergent needs of your community. Is this acceptable to you and your loved ones when emergency medi-cal care is required?

    We are urging the government through the BCEHS to return the medical response to what the Cain Report in 1989 envisioned of an ambulance service, which was a layered response, with firefighters being simultaneously dispatched to medical emergencies within their communitys jurisdiction. Wait times are becoming dangerously long and putting undue stress on those in need of immediate care.

    sional Fire Fighters Association (BCPFFA)

    Town without mercy

    The phone just rang and we are starting to feel like if we are going to become crazy sooner than what we have thought we would be. At noon a couple will be dropping a cat they cannot take care of her any more and we are happy to receive it. We thank people who bring them to us instead of abandoning them in isolated areas.

    In addition to wel-coming this gorgeous white female cat, we also have to go pick up five more kittens from the colony we have been working on dur-ing this past week.

    Therefore, lets put all this in context:

    Without counting the other 16 adult cats and 26 kittens we have res-cued since April, and without counting the males that we have not yet caught from the property we are work-ing on, the total num-ber of cats rescued just from this tax payers home in Sooke raised to six pregnant females and eight kittens. The six mothers will pro-duce another 30 cats raising up the number of animals saved to 44 cats.

    In other words, sav-ing these animals and stopping feline over-population has become the responsibility of good hearted citizens and not of politicians. The responsibility of finding money to feed, shelter, spay/neuter/

    de-worm/vaccinate/de-flea, and provide medi-cal attention to these 44 victims of humankind lays just on those with compassion and not on those with power.

    Forty four cats do not seem too much, but when we calcu-late that in two years 1,450 new cats would be born from just one female the scenario - statistics - and reason-ing changes. SAFARS is preventing 63,800 new cats to be born just from one property.

    As the indifference of others grow regard-ing this ticking problem so does our alarming worry to find a piece of land where to keep these animals. As you all know by now, the owner of the barn we have been refurbishing for the past two years sold the property.

    The sad part of Sooke becoming like a town without mercy is that we are now search-ing to move to a more pet caring and friendly town.

    Response to Lewers letter

    I just finished read-ing your opinion article in this weeks Sooke News Mirror and I have to say I am appalled and unsure of the pur-pose of you writing it.

    It would be completely understandable if you were being awarded with the title of hero and in modesty argued the use of the term. To outrightly discredit and undervalue the acts of our firefighters, policemen and military is both spiteful and unnecessary. You argue that because they are trained and equipped they are exempt from this recognition. I argue that this does not negate the risk they are taking, it makes them educated and more effectively able to help those they are serving. In fact, having the time to fully understand and contemplate the risk they are assuming makes them even more heroic.

    I am the wife of an individual who is both a volunteer firefighter and member of the military. I can tell you from first hand expe-rience, every time my husband answers a page from the fire hall or is deployed on a mili-tary exercise I cannot completely relax until I know he has com-pleted the task at hand and is safe. For an indi-vidual, especially a fam-ily man (or women) to put themselves in situ-ations where the out-come is uncertain and their well-being; physi-cally, emotionally, and mentally; are compro-mised is a heroic act.

    Given that you claim to have once been a member of the fire

    department you must know of the likelihood of long term health effects brought on by exposure to the hazard-ous materials firefight-ers are exposed to. The emotional and mental turmoil of first respond-ers is not to be taken lightly.

    I am extremely grate-ful for all service peo-ple who are ready at a moments notice to put their lives and the live-lihood of their families on the line to serve our communities and coun-try. Oh, and in case you are interested, the actual definition of a hero is hero: noun; a person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities; a per-son who is greatly admired (taken from the Websters diction-ary).

    I wish you all the best and are hopeful you have a change in attitude.

    Intent of letter not understood

    It has come to my attention that some people in the fire department think I was or am actively trying to damage their recruiting campaign.

    Let me be clear, this could not be further from the truth. My let-ter was written over three weeks ago in

    response to a Times Col-onist article not related to fire departments, and was intended for both a national or regional publication, but it exceeded the word count. I had no idea about the Com-munity Hero campaign that was about to be launched.

    As an ex-member of the fire department, I have continually fought politically for the rights of volunteers (although not always through spending of cash). I have faithfully backed the fire department via my Facebook account and actively encour-aged people to join the volunteer fire service.

    Not once in my opin-ion piece did I attack anyone or intention-ally undermine anyone, except perhaps media and politicians. This let-ter was to address what I perceive as a bigger issue than local, for me it represents an issue that impacts most of North America, and the lack of willingness of politicians to manage

    We asked: What is the value of public markets, to Sooke?

    Its an opportunity to showcase locally made food and art. Its

    an important part of our community-based economy.

    Phoebe DunbarSooke

    The value of any community market is to bond the people with those who bake and create their

    own food. It bonds people with others who care for the

    environment.

    Sheila TourondSooke

    It is a awesome opportunity for locals to share their skills,

    whether it's art, jewelry, gardening or other things. It

    brings the community of Sooke together.

    Kerrie ReaySooke

    The value is tremendous. It brings the people out, and

    families with their children. Its a great way to showcase what

    Sooke has to offer.

  • our affairs on facts and logic rather than emo-tion and easy votes.

    There are many great reasons to serve as a volunteer firefighter in any community, such as camaraderie, fit-ness, adrenaline rush, free training, serving the greater good of your community, help-ing others, being part of a great organiza-tion, annual banquets, reduced tax burden etc. and these positives should be marketed to any potential recruits.

    I find it very doubt-ful that my observa-tions of politicians and media over use of the word hero to describe such a broad spectrum of groups, acts, or ani-mals, would have any impact on recruiting, and if anyone is want-ing to join just so that they can be called a hero, well, I would just question if that would be the right person for the job.

    Spot zoning for waste transfer

    I am concerned to find so much of our industrial land poten-tially zoned for Waste Transfer i.e., all proper-ties zoned M2.

    In our case Cana-dian Food Inspection Agency mandates processing facilities must be located in a clean environment and specifies dust, insects, rodents, birds as being potential issues.

    Imagine their enthu-siasm for rats gambol-ing about in the adja-cent waste transfer facility.

    Imagine the enthusi-asm of an international firm coming for a due diligence inspection of your facility.

    If we are ever to encourage clean high tech industry to our region we must con-sider they may not want to locate next to a property that could become a waste trans-fer facility.

    I believe sewage, garbage, composting are the responsibilities of the communities in which they are created.

    Planning for these issues is fundamental to the quality of life in a community.

    In this case let us look at spot zoning only and have our plan-ning department work towards a real program

    for garbage, waste recycling, and com-posting.Lets stop ship-pingwaste off for less worthy regions to deal with.

    Park purpose statement and zoning

    Director Hicks, writ-ing about motorized access to lakes in the CRD parks and park reserves, said he would like a shuttle service for the general public. He concluded that until the various parks plans are revised with the interest of all relevant stake holders consid-ered, he wont spend time on the issue. This is straightforward and practical. To say Direc-tor Hicks is pandering

    for cheap votes is, in itself, demagoguery.

    The BC Parks zon-ing for Sooke Moun-tain Provincial Park is Natural Environment. While the zone does describe both mecha-nized and non-mecha-nized access generally, each park has its own plan. The management guidelines with the zoning key state that visitor access may be restricted to pre-serve the recreation experience or to limit impacts.

    The purpose state-ment and zoning plan for Sooke Mountain Provincial Park current in 2012 lists environ-mental damage from mountain biking, dirt biking, horseback rid-ing and ATV and 4x4 use in management issues identified in 2003. Proposed miti-gation includes work-ing with the CRD and private land holders

    to close 4x4 access in order to address the impacts. Under Rec-reation, the plan states that ATV and 4x4 use and dirt biking are not considered appropriate uses in the park. Mark-ing the park boundar-ies is a response to the issue of people not rec-ognizing when they are in the provincial park.

    Access to private property in the Sea to Sea Green Blue Belt is a problem for the prop-erty owners. Access to private property that runs through parks, Crown land or other private property should not be confused with giving motorized vehicles access to the parks or lakes in the parks, or other pri-vately held parcels.
