  2. A wealth of artist demos and gallery tours, all online, aim at fostering creativity and community. A DAY AFTER stringent new COVID measures were announced by Dr Bonnie Henry on November 19, the Bridge Crawl planning team at Arc.Hive Artist Run Centre were feeling both relieved and excited. Relieved because when they had started planning the multi-venue/multi-artist event last spring, they decided to incorporate a lot of digital components into it, just in case COVID-19 was not behind us by the fall. And they were excited because only some fine-tuning to keep everything safe was nee

    LUCA FOGALE EXCLUSIVE CONCERT SERIES 2 NIGHTS • 50 PEOPLE DECEMBER 4 & 5 - 7:30 PM The honesty in Luca’s voice is impossible to ignore, elevating songs rooted in the folk tradition to soulful hymns about the human condition. With influences from Joni Mitchell to Bob Dylan, Luca's reflective and sometimes melancholic songwriting pulls the listener into a deeply hypnotic meditation on redemption and transcendence.

  6. I agree with SRB’s comment about the rules being open to interpretation, and as I noted in my story, inconsistently applied. After being told by my mother’s care home management that it was not permitted by Island Health that the Designated Visitor status could be shifted to another family member (me), my sister found a statement on the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority indicating that in “extenuating circumstances” it could be (which makes total sense). Our facility manager agreed to look into further with Island Health and (hurray!) I am about to become the Designated Visitor. So prod those

  9. The literary and visual arts come together in Stanzas, a city-wide poem Concrete is Porous: the anchoring stanza Kegan McFadden, executive director of the Victoria Arts Council, is excited about the new, city-wide Stanzas exhibit running in September and October. With a background in both visual arts and creative writing, he says such an exhibit, bringing the two together, has always been a dream of his. That dream was about to come to fruition last April, but was covid-cancelled. Now, with some adjustments, it’s set for relaunch in early September with 6 galleries and 75
  10. September 3, 2020 A “ DEMAGOGUE,” states Wikipedia, “is a leader who gains popularity in a democracy by exploiting emotions, prejudice, and ignorance to arouse some against others, whipping up the passions of the crowd and shutting down reasoned deliberation.” Reading further, we find the “methods” of a demagogue include scapegoating, fear mongering, lying, promising the impossible, personal insults and ridicule, accusing the opposition of weakness and disloyalty, folksy posturing, gross oversimplification, and attacking the news media. Now who does that fit to a T? The new
  11. Thank you Garth for responding here. It would be more helpful to the conversation around this topic if you could explain your reservations about the ideas expressed in the op-ed, rather than calling them ridiculous and idiocy.
  12. Posted August 28, 2020 Image: The author and her sisters visit their mom Jade at the James Bay Care Centre, pre-COVID 19 The one-visitor limit for care home residents, along with a lack of outings and other stimulation, could well be posing a greater risk than the coronavirus. Go to story
  13. The one-visitor limit for care home residents, along with a lack of outings and other stimulation, could well be posing a greater risk than the coronavirus. TWO MONTHS AGO, on June 30, the BC government announced a “relaxation” of their essential-visitor-only policy for long-term care facilities that had been in place since the pandemic’s first victims in the province in March. The earlier no-visitor policy had caused much anguish among elders and their families, but it’s debatable that the new, still highly-restrictive rules are much better. The policy, which went into pract
  14. July 3, 2020 THE FOREST AROUND OUR QUADRA ISLAND HAVEN is aglow right now with droopy white plumes of ocean spray (Holodiscus discolor), ruby-jewelled salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis) and huckleberry (Vaccinium parvifolium). I feel so lucky to have been here through the full pandemic-infused spring as I have been able to watch and photograph each stage of these plants’ evolution from bare branches through the unfurling of their leaves, blossoming of their flowers and swelling of their berries. The salmonberries and huckleberries are plump and juicy, thanks to copious rain over th
