“We decided I would beautify the pipe so that people would love what’s happening, rather than be annoyed,” Said Waclawik. “I’ve had really good comments from the community, people seem to love what I’m doing, and it’s a bright thing instead of a black pipe.”

 

The pipe has been sitting above ground in the closed street for six weeks. It will eventually run along the Dallas Road waterfront to Ogden Point and go under the Victoria Harbour, ending at a treatment plant being built at McLoughlin Point.

 

Whoops, some basic facts there completely wrong.

The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has posted their decision of a complaint by one of VibrantVictoria's members David Bratzer.

 

The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council has found that CHEK-DT breached the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Violence Code in a report aired during the 5:00 pm CHEK News on September 11, 2017.  CHEK-DT failed to provide a warning before airing disturbing footage of a vehicle accident, contrary to Article 6.3 of the Violence Code.

 

This complaint identified more than one possible infraction of which this is the only decision finding CHEK to be negligent. This complaint was about the requirement to post an alert or warning of graphic video. The news article in question was that of a motorcyclist that was killed in a collision with a truck. CHEK is required to air the decision.

I watch for the decision to be aired at 3AM Sunday morning! That is prime time in Australia!

Effective Journalism 101

If you're going to do a story on the "boom" in construction within a specific segment of the region, it might not be a bad idea to ensure the accompanying photo reflects the contents of that story.

I haven't been out to Langford in a while, so I suppose it might be possible that a building virtually identical to the Legato, on a street that looks suspiciously similar to the 900 block of Yates Street, is under construction, but I have my doubts.

There is no condo boom on the West Shore, but there is a rental housing boom.

 

21 rental buildings are underway on the West Shore, compared to three or four condo buildings.

In fact there are 23 rental apartments currently under construction on the West Shore. Two are condos.

Are we sure that the rental buildings are not strata titled?

I suspect the term "condo" is being used loosely here. The data within the article is also very strange. It just goes to show how "off" statistics can be.

An interesting bit of history from the old CHEK TV when the station was located in Saanich on Epsom Drive; a media chum of my dad's sent this old B&W to me just recently. It dates from roughly about 1961-2.

 

This is a picture of the master control room where the technicians literally ran the show behind the scenes, performed all the sound and video editing, queued up and aired the commercials, etc.The glass booth @ centre-right is where the announcers would typically record voice overs for news stories etc.

 

Spent a huge chunk of my youth from ages 2-11 at this joint literally being babysat on Saturdays by some of the guys in this pic while dad did his thing on his show in the main studio beyond the sound proofed glass partition. They usually pulled out a monitor and perched me on a stool in a corner to watch cartoons which looped over and over all day, probably figuring - correctly - that Gigantor, Batman and later Scooby-Doo and the Banana Splits would keep the little b@stard entertained and out of trouble :).

 

This is actually only a fraction of the equipment much of which is out of frame and behind the fellows sitting at their stations here; also later in the decade (1960's) the control area expanded far to the left of this shot where the bench ends and they added a whole slough of monitors above. A happy childhood memory for sure -
