    Infusion of funding for local projectsBritt SantowskiSooke News Mirror

    On Wednesday, Aug 28, the Government of Canada announced spending specific to Sooke, which will ben-efit infrastructure proj-ects at Camp Barnard, the Sooke Region His-torical Society (our museum), and the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre. In total, $80,100 are being invested in the com-munity of Sooke. The funds come from the federal governments Community Infrastruc-ture Improvement Fund (CIIF).

    Youth attending Camp Barnard as a part of the cross country running group listened on the edge of their seats as the Honour-able John Duncan Minister of State, Chief Government Whip, and Conservative MP for Vancouver Island North made the announce-ment at the camp. Hon-ourable Michelle Rem-pel, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification, was unable to attend.

    In his speech about the funds given to local programs, Duncan said These [programs] are very much a founda-tion for our communi-ties, bringing families, visitors and residents

    together, will enhance the qualify of life in our communities, and to generate economic activities and jobs.

    Program organizers took the opportunity to express their grati-tude and announce how their individual programs were going to use the funds.

    Camp Barnard received $23,250. The funding model for Camp Barnard is pretty straightforward accord-ing to Gary Hendren, the spokesperson for Camp Barnard. The user pays a fee, and the camp makes up the difference with money raised through local fundraising events.

    One of the prob-lems that we do run into using that model is major infrastructure replacement, said Hendren. The upcom-ing 2015 Scouts Jam-boree, where the orga-nizers at Camp Barnard are expecting about 3,000 attendees, height-ened awareness of needed infrastructure upgrades. The funds they received will go towards replacing a piece of pipe (that) was put in on a tempo-rary basis in 1987, said Hendren. Currently, that pipe leaks like a sieve.

    The Sooke Region Historical Society received $27,500. Lee

    Boyko, the executive director at the Sooke Region Museum said the funds would be put towards roof upgrades, the installation of LED lights making the museum more energy efficient and space upgrades, allowing for larger groups to come through the infor-mation centre and museum. This funding will allow the museum to prosper, develop and grow summed up Boyko.

    The Charters River Salmon Interpre-tive centre received $29,350. Speaking on behalf of the Charters River Salmon Interpre-tive centre, Elida Peers said We are a strug-gling group of volun-teers dedicated to both enhancement of salmon habitat and to education in promot-ing understanding in the needs of our West Coast salmon popula-tion for future sustain-ability. To further their mandate, the centre will use their funds to install skylights, cre-ate viewing areas and seating, provide pro-tective viewing cover-ings and install win-dow blinds. Septic upgrades and hookup are also planned. These improvements will assist in their plan to accommodate an on-site caretaker.

    Action for Sooke Elida Peers, speaking on behalf of the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre, addressed the infrastructure improvements that will ultimately help with their plan to accommodate an on-site caretaker. The federal government came through with funding which will see improvements made to the centre. Funding was also given to Camp Bernard for upgrades and also to the Sooke Region Historical Society for fixing the roof of the Sooke Region Museum and installing better lighting. In total the federal government handed out just over $80,000.
