Via Times Colunist:
In the race to decide the largest geographical district on Vancouver Island it was veteran experience versus upstart exuberance.
In the end, experience won out as Quadra Island resident Claire Trevena secured a third term as North Island MLA-elect in a battle over BC Liberal candidate Nick Facey.
Trevena, the New Democratic Party’s opposition critic of children and family development, was elected in 2005 and 2009 by relatively modest margins. She won again in 2013 by a comfortable margin of nearly 2,000 votes with 133 of a possible 153 polls reporting.
BC Conservative Bob Bray was well behind and out of the running early.
“The campaign we ran was based on policy and issues,” Trevena said from her election party, held at the Labour Hall in Campbell River. “Real concerns about ferry fare and concerns about poverty, things that are important to out constituents. I feel very honored.”
Facey, a doctoral candidate in the school of business at Vancouver’s Simon Fraser University, campaigned for responsible development in the resource sector. Facey graduated from Campbell River’s Timberline Secondary, and has deep family roots in the forest industry.
Defeat notwithstanding, Facey felt a sense of pride over his inaugural political campaign. “Honestly, I am extremely thankful for my team. I’m really happy with the campaign we ran.”Email This Post to a Friend
As many of you may have heard already, there has been a cougar in the Dogwood Drive area. This cougar is not scared of humans and has been reported watching people, perhaps stalking.
At just after 9:00pm last night, a resident was walking his dog at the top of Dogwood, and this cougar appeared 15 feet behind him. His dog lunged towards the cougar, coming out of her collar in the process. Tragically, the cougar then picked up the dog and ran back across the street and into the bush.
Conservation is aware of this situation, and as of late last night, the RCMP were attempting to locate the cat as well. The Buzz is not yet aware as of this morning whether the cat has been found or not.
Please be extremely cautious! Do not let your children walk back and forth to school on their own – even during the daylight. Bring your pets inside and keep them inside. It would be wise to avoid walking in the area as well due to the fearless nature of this particular cat.
Tips to remember:
If you meet a cougar:
If a cougar behaves aggressively:
