Sturgis North will be rolling back into Sicamous this summer, for not one, but two events. Though Sturgis has moved the base location of its second annual motorcycle rally and music festival from Salmon Arm to the MotoPlex Speedway and Event Park in Spallumcheen, Sicamous will once again have an opportunity to host the Sturgis burnout competition during the event, slated for July 18-22. But plans are also in the works for Sicamous to host something of a teaser event for the rally, a cabaret/concert, slated for May 26 at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre. “The council has supported, in principle, the concept of having a large cabaret in the rec centre… and we have big bands that are on the table to come to that event,” says Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton. Confirmed to play Sturgis in July are The Guess Who, The Stampeders, Nick Gilder, Sweeney Todd and the Edward Winter Band. The mayor could not say what band or bands might be coming to Sicamous in May. Recreation centre manager Wayne March didn’t either, though he did express his pleasure in seeing the arena utilized for such an event. “It will be good for the rec centre and the community,” says March. “You’ve got to remember, this is a community building… And bringing in bands from Sturgis North is one more item people can see.” Trouton says Sturgis will help promote the May event, but it will be up to Sicamous to run it. He adds it will take place on the same weekend as a ladies fastball tournament at Finlayson Park. See Two on page 3

Tractor tune-up

Directors lobby for more police By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

Concerns about inadequate police coverage in rural areas will be sent to the Southern Interior Local Government Association via a resolution approved at the Feb. 16 Columbia Shuswap Regional District board meeting. “My favourite topic,” said Area D FalklandSilver Creek-Ranchero director René Talbot as discussion began. “We supposedly have a detachment in Falkland, but nobody’s ever there. We have two officers and a constable but they’re so busy in Armstrong, so we’re

left out.” An irate Talbot, who has long sought an increase in police coverage for Falkland, said he had been told about a woman who, from the road she was on, heard a domestic dispute going on inside a home, called 911, and waited for police for over an hour. As well, Talbot told directors many members of local RCMP detachments are on longtime disability. “In one month, they had 39 sick days,” he said, noting it took police over an hour to respond to a serious accident. “It’s unbelievable. The rural areas suffer and that’s totally unac-

ceptable.” Happy to vote in favour of the motion, Area E Rural Sicamous director Rhona Martin said discussions about problems with rural policing have been going on at the CSRD board table for many years. “It needs to be looked at,” she said. “I know municipalities pay a lot, but we pay as well and we should get adequate coverage.” City of Salmon Arm rep Debbie Cannon said Salmon Arm Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane told city council he has 19 active members and policing in Area C South Shuswap has not increased in 30 years, despite the

huge population increase. Cannon told directors policing costs amount to 24 per cent of the city’s budget. “Quite often our municipal officers go out to rural areas, but there’s no way to account for that,” she said. “They don’t want officers to be alone, but they don’t have the budget for it.” If the regional district’s resolution on increased policing is endorsed by SILGA it will be sent on to the Union of BC Municipalities’ AGM, a move that does not instil Martin with confidence. “When we go to UBCM we don’t have

enough time or clout,” she said. “Maybe we need to go to Victoria with this.” Area C South Shuswap director and board chair Ted Bacigalupo also supported the resolution, which passed unanimously. “I know Salmon Arm spends a lot of time in C and F because of agricultural industry,” he said. “We need to rekindle the process of dealing with the RCMP.” The board will send an invitation to the superintendent and local RCMP detachment staff sergeants to speak to the board about communication and policing needs in electoral areas.

“So the ball diamonds will be full, the arena will be full, which will help fill up the community,” says Trouton. “In saying that, we’re working with all the non-profit organizations and groups so they will have a piece of that, so it helps stimulate the economy within the community for the non-profit groups. “It’s a matter of the whole community pulling together to put on big events like this.” As to who exactly will be doing all the organizing for the Sturgis events, Trouton says council is looking at a “concept where the district will support someone to work at arm’s length, to help promote events like this and make sure they move forward with a positive, fair attitude.” Security was an issue at last year’s burnout event. Fencing around the burnout area was inadequate and security, provided by the fire department, was called away when an accident occurred on the Bruhn Bridge. Trouton says it was a learning experience for the community, and that more appropriate arrangements will be made. “You learn from that and you move forward,” says Trouton. The mayor says he was impressed with what he saw from Sturgis last year, not just in Sicamous but in Salmon Arm, and he sees only opportunity in the integration of the Houseboat Capital of Canada with the hottest motorcycle rally, music festival and trade show in the country. “If you were down at the fairgrounds last year when they had Sturgis there, I would say 90 per cent of the bikers in today’s society are, let’s face it, they’re the wannabe bikers, people who buy these expensive toys… they’re out on the open road and enjoying the week,” says Trouton. “That’s all they want, a holiday. It’s a fun atmosphere.”

Friday, February 24, 2012 Shuswap Market News

OPINION Tory Internet bill dubious at best The Conservatives’ proposed online surveillance bill is one of the worst pieces of legislation ever conceived. Indeed, police need better tools for tracking crime on the Internet, but are we willing to abandon the rule of law and allow unfettered access to personal information? Currently, police must get warrants in their investigation to balance the conflicting interests of the state and people’s right to privacy. According to public safety minister Vic Toews, to oppose the plan to do away with that balance in Internet cases, means we are “standing with the child pornographers.” It’s just this type of fear-mongering that brands opponents of such legislation in a negative light. It’s a political strategy to stave off criticism. Toss out the words ‘child pornography’ and we all recoil in horror — reasonable people want this crime to stop. Then the government will point out child porn crimes have gone up. Statistics Canada’s outline of police-reported crimes in 2010 showed there were 2,190 child porn cases, 36 per cent more than 2009. It sounds like the police are doing their job already, and finding the criminals or criminal acts. The attack on child porn in this bill is only a small part of its potential uses. The feds also want to track organized crime. This, despite an almost across-the-board drop in crime rates. As Internet-based crime continues to be a concern (child porn, scams, bullying etc.), it’s important for police to be able to keep up and get the information they need in a timely manner. But we shouldn’t abandon the checks and balances in place to insure the state’s interests do not override our own. — Parksville/ Qualicum News

A who’s who of outdoor mysteries It would seem that I’m not the only person who is a fan of murder mystery books, especially ones that are set in the great outdoors. Last December I wrote a column, entitled Getting In Touch With My Feminine Side that was exclusively about women murder mystery writers who write in such a genre. Since then I have been asked many times for a copy of that column so readers could have a list of the books and authors. I figured I would go one step further. Here is a list from that column, as well as a few more women murder mystery writers whose books are set in the wilds. Nevada Barr (Blood Lure, Endangered Species, Winter Study and High Country) is a former park ranger with 16 books to her credit. The main character in all her books, Anna Pigeon, is also a park ranger. Each book, oddly enough, takes place in a national (U.S.) park. Barr’s prose flow like a mountain stream, her characters are more than believable and her plots are well-crafted. One cannot help but feel like you’ve been to each of the

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray parks once you’ve read her books. Sue Henry’s books (Murder on the Yukon Quest, Murder on the Iditarod Trail, Dead North and Degrees of Separation) take place in the north. She knows her stuff when it comes to dog sled racing and life in the rugged wilds of the far north. Henry combines the murder mystery genre with the reality of a musher’s life along the trail. Victoria Houston (Dead Angler, Dead Frenzy, Dead Hot Mama and Dead Deceiver) writes fishing murder mysteries. Need I say more. A couple of years ago someone left one of her books on my desk at work. I still don’t know who it was. I took it home to read over

the Christmas holidays and couldn’t wait for the stores to open so that I could order more. I’ve read them all. Dana Stabenow (Dead in the Water, The Mysterious North, A Fatal Thaw and A Fine and Bitter Snow) is another murder mystery writer whose books mostly take place in the north (Alaska). She too has a feel for the land. Although I would have to say that her plots are somewhat darker and more sinister than some of the others whose books take place in the wilds. I like her attention to small details. Her books really are the kind that keep you turning the page to read “just a little more.” L. R. (Laurali Rose) Wright (A Chill Rain in January, Fall From Grace, Prized Possessions and The Suspect) was Canadian. Although she died far too young, she did write a fair number of really good murder mysteries, most of which took place in and around Sechelt on the West Coast. I think one of the reasons I particularly like her books is because her heros are almost as flawed as her villains.

Her characters are real, down-to-earth, everyday people. Sharyn McCrumb (She Walks These Hills, The Rosewood Casket and The Ballad of Frankie Silver) is best known for her Appalachian “Ballad” novels set in the Tennessee mountains. They are as connected to the land as they are to the lives of the characters in her books. These are just some of the many, really fine female writers whose books take place on the land and in the outdoors. Not to mention writers such as B. J. Oliphant, a pseudonym for Sheri S. Tepper, whose books take place in both the outback and remote rural areas, or M. C. Beaton, a pseudonym Marion Chesney, whose books are set in the rugged highlands of Scotland. I am sure there are a lot of other female murder mystery writers, whose books are set in the outdoors, that I have yet to discover, just as there are a lot of good male murder mystery writers who’s books take place in wilderness settings. Next week I will cover some of the men.

What’s behind the census numbers?

to work in construction that had been focused on new recreational developments. Now, according to Delisle, family breadwinners are either having to commute to work in the oil patch or families have left. As well, many aging North Shuswap seniors find it difficult to live in a community with inadequate health care. Delisle is now helping the newly re-established Scotch Creek Health Clinic to remain open and viable. The North Shuswap, according to Delisle, has typically been a cyclical place for employment. Yet, when the forest industry employed many more workers than it does now and the population was much lower, the school population was as large or larger. Interestingly, while there has been a steady population decline in rural communities, the Shuswap First Nation communities have experienced a significant population increase of nearly 11 per cent. It appears that as the standard of living and the quality of life continues to improve for local bands, so does their population growth. Even though many experts claim the economy is recovering, there seems to be no end in sight for the economic factors behind our declining population. Unless new value-added industries or new tech-

nology businesses move to the Shuswap, it is unlikely that we can expect any further influx of young families or see our young people remain. Instead, there should be a greater realization that the major economic driver for the Shuswap comes from the retiring boomer generation.

Even though we all live on a finite planet with finite resources, our economy is fuelled by growth that is ultimately based on population. The latest Canadian census numbers have been released and while British Columbia grew from 2006 to 2011 by seven per cent, the Shuswap region experienced a substantial decline. Except for Salmon Arm, which grew by nine per cent, most of the smaller and rural communities lost people. Just what are the factors behind these numbers and what are the consequences? Salmon Arm’s growth amounts to an additional 1,478 new people, which is equivalent to approximately 591 families. Interestingly, over approximately the same five-year period the city’s building permit data shows construction costs for dwellings totalled nearly $130-million. This works out to $219,546 per new family, which is likely close to the average construction cost of a new home

and 8.8 per cent in Sicamous) is that when young people graduate they usually move away to attend post-secondary school or to where they can find work. In Malakwa, another sign of the changing demographics is the status of the elementary school, which at one time had over 150 students, the largest number in the district. It was closed last year when its enrolment dropped to just 40, but the parents worked to keep it open for just 17 students through the Self-Design program. As well, the high school in Sicamous which once had an enrolment of over 400 students is now down to just 150. Exacerbating the problem is a policy that allows parents to send their children to other schools, so some Sicamous students attend in Salmon Arm. According to the census numbers, the North Shuswap experienced the largest decline in population, where it dropped 13.3 per cent, a loss of 363 people. The area is now beset by shuttered businesses and failed developments. Former Area F CSRD director and long-time resident Denis Delisle is not surprised and blames it in part on the recession, which has dramatically slowed down the North Shuswap’s building boom. Many of the newcomers had moved to the area

or condo. Out of the total amount spent on dwelling construction, 14.5 per cent was for multi-family dwellings and 8.6 per cent was for modular homes. And the data shows a significant drop in building from the high of $40.5-million in 2007 to $15-million in 2010 and just $11-million last year. Another key factor in understanding the region’s population dynamics is the school enrolment. During the last five years the number of public school students has declined steadily, with 646 fewer in 2011 than in 2006. The significant population increase in Salmon Arm is likely attributable to an influx of primarily senior citizens, rather than young families. And the population decline in the rural communities is due in part to young families leaving the Shuswap. It is no wonder that young families are leaving, because, as CSRD Area E Director Rhona Martin explained succinctly, “there is no work.� She went on to describe how the Sicamous, Malakwa and Mara Lake region is suffering because the forest industry no longer employs many workers and the houseboat building industry has collapsed. Martin believes that another cause for the population decline (12.6 per cent in Malakwa/Mara Lake

Sharing traditions in dance On Monday Feb. 20, a group of young aboriginal dancers from Vernon were accompanied by the band Little Hawk, at a performance in the gymnasium at Carlin Elementary Middle School. The session was narrated by Okanagan Indian Band elder Emery Robins, and presented to two separate groups of students, one for elementary students, followed by another performance for middle school students. The first dance at

powwow gatherings, Robins explained, is the Grass Dance. The grass dancer in this case was Tyler Jensen, who blesses the ground for the celebration, and beats down the grass with dancing feet, for proceedings to follow. Music for the grass dance is upbeat and powerful, and brought out some emotional feelings. Little Hawk Band members were Tim Edwards, Bill Robins, Derek ‘Buck’ Sheena, and Sammy Seymour.

What motivates people to bully each other is dependant on where we came from. Bullies often have been bullied in the past, it’s a method of control learned through behavioral experience. Once again communication breakdown is likely a factor. I’ve written an entire chapter in my book ‘QA: KISS (Quality Assurance: Keep It Simple) on how bullying affects the quality of work life, degrading the bottom line of the business. That’s where a great sense of humour, an open mind, with willingness to forgive will take us far in this world, along with mindfulness of certain issues under our control.

Myths about foreign investment FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes Investment of capital to create wealth in a country is critical for nation building. Not all capital needed to build the economy and create jobs is derived from within. Foreign investment is also critical to the economy. Canada’s Foreign Investment Review process is triggered when a significant investment is

made by a country or foreign corporation that might compromise the sovereignty of Canada’s economy. Such was the case with the Saskatchewan Potash purchase that was rejected last year. Currently, Caterpillar Ltd is closing the Electro-Motive company operations in London, Ont. and moving their operations to the USA. Unfortunately, 450 workers in London were laid off and the opposition parties are using this example as an attack on our government for not protecting Canadian workers. You need to know the rest of the story. Myth: Electro-Motive

was a Canadian company that was sold to the American company, Caterpillar. Truth: Electro-Motive has been owned by several American companies since 1930. In fact, Electro-Motive has been a Canadian subsidiary of different American companies for over eight decades. Myth: The federal Government gave money to Electro-Motive. Truth: No federal Government money (Conservative or Liberal) has been given to Electro-Motive. Myth: The Prime Minister visited the EMD plant a few years ago to announce a tax

break for Electro-Motive. Truth: The PM visited the Electro-Motive plant and announced a tax change that would make it more affordable for Canadian rail companies to purchase the newer, better and more environmentally-friendly locomotives. This was a tax write-down for the customers of companies like EMD, not for EMD. The government of Canada cannot arbitrarily force a foreign company to keep their operations in Canada but we can keep corporate tax rates competitive to retain and attract foreign investment. Your government will

Build your defence against colds and flus LIVING WELL A strong immune system is the body’s best defense against colds and flu. Good nutrition is key to building your body’s defences. Help fight common bugs by filling your diet with healthy foods. Load up on fruits and vegetables. They contain powerful antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which will build up your immune system to help fight off illness. Choose brightly coloured or dark green fruits and veggies for the most antioxidants. Aim for seven to eight servings per day. One serving equals one

small to medium sized piece of fruit or vegetable or half a cup of chopped. Digestive health plays an important role in preventing sickness. Normally, your body contains “friendly” bacteria, or flora, that help fight off any “bad” bacteria trying to gain access to your system. Diets high in refined sugar, frequent antibiotic use, and everyday stress can disrupt this healthy balance of “friendly” versus “bad” bacteria, leaving one more vulnerable to sickness. You can help restore healthy digestive flora by eating foods that naturally contain good bacteria and/or by taking a probiotic supplement. Probiotics can

B.C.’s new financial plan is drawing mixed reaction across the North Okanagan. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon presented his 2012 budget in the Legislature Tuesday. “They put $15 million into advertising their jobs plan but they ignored post-secondary and training needs,” said Carole Gordon, North Okanagan Labour Council president. “They are doing nothing to create the skilled jobs they’re advertising for.” As part of the budget, first-time buyers will be eligible for up to $10,000 for a new residence. “That’s good for the building trades but it doesn’t help the average family which traditionally purchases existing housing,” said Robinson. Victoria’s goal is a $154 million surplus in 2013/14 and $250 million in 2014/15. To get there, spending growth will be limited to two per cent. “It’s a necessary approach this time around,” said Darren Robinson, Enderby Chamber of Commerce executive director, who questions, though, what tighter spending will do to stimulating the economy. For Robinson, businesses will see some direct benefits from the budget. “Their (government) approach isn’t an increase in taxes,” he said. The small business income tax will remain at the current 2.5 per cent. The B.C. Fruit Growers Association is upset there’s no new cash for the Ministry of Agriculture. “In B.C. we have had four years of negative net farm income, for all of agriculture,” said Jeet Dukhia, BCFGA vice-president. “The lack of agriculture programs is preventing our sector from growing and creating jobs.” Dukhia says B.C. could trigger an additional $88 million in federal funds by bringing its contribution up to the national average. “B.C. is leaving federal funding on the table to the detriment of local farmers.” Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA, defends the government’s financial plan. “It’s a conservative budget but it addresses health care, social services and education,” he said. “We’re not blowing the bank and going into unnecessary debt.” Falcon forecasts there will be a balanced budget just before the May 2013 election, but Foster insists this isn’t the Liberals’ attempt to hold on to power. “We are striving to be a place where people want to invest,” he said.

Icebreakers finish final game in tie The Shuswap Icebreakers faced Kelowna in their final home game of the season this past weekend, coming away with a 9-9 tie. Kelowna stormed out to a 2-0 lead early in the first, before Natasha Kociuba tucked the ring past the Kelowna netminder for the Icebreakers’ first goal of the game. Ewan Runciman scored the next three goals for Shuswap, recording a natural hattrick and giving the Icebreakers their first lead of the game. Cadence Petitclerc-Crosby scored a pair of goals of her own in the first, the Icebreakers taking a 6-5 lead into the first intermission. Mikaela Curdyk, Petitclerc-Crosby with her third of the game, and Kylynn Rosenberg would round out the scoring for the Icebreakers, their final goal coming with just over three minutes left in the game to tie it up. Teagan Findlay was exceptionally strong on defence for the Icebreakers, recording four helpers. The Icebreakers travel to Rutland this weekend.

Bacigalupo chairs library board At the Feb. 15 meeting of the Okanagan Regional Library Board of Trustees, ten new members joined for their first meeting. The 25-member ORL board is comprised of representatives from municipal councils, regional districts, and First Nations councils throughout the library district, and with municipal elections held last November, ten board positions now have new representatives. Executive members were also chosen, with Ted Bacigalupo from the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District being elected as Chair for his fifth year. Other executive include: - Carol Zanon (West Kelowna), Vice Chair - Mark Pendergraft (Okanagan Similkameen Regional District), Finance Chair - Peter Schierbeck (Peachland), Policy and Planning Chair - Marilyn Harkness (Princeton), Personnel Chair At the meeting the board also heard an update on construction progress of the new Vernon branch, set to open to the public on May 5. Substantial contributions from Telus, the Vernon Friends of the Library, and community members are being explored that will make the new branch the most technologically up-to-date in the ORL system. This grand opening will coincide with the Vernon Friends of the Library Book Sale, held from May 3-6 at the Vernon Curling Rink, so book lovers in the North Okanagan will be able to enjoy a weekend of special activities. Additionally, the board discussed plans for other branches. The Westbank branch will be undergoing renovations later this spring to increase its size from 6,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet, in recognition of the area’s growing population. The Summerland branch is also due for size upgrades and the board will receive a report on recommendations for next steps at the next meeting in May.

ING BULLY STOPS HERE

JAMES MURRAY/MARKET NEWS

Support anti-bullying

I

t started in September 2007, when two teens at a Nova Scotia high school stood up for a younger student. David Shepherd and Travis Price, both in Grade 12, heard about a Grade 9 student at their school who had been bullied and threatened for wearing a pink polo shirt on his first day of school. They decided they should do something about it and went to a discount store, where they bought 50 pink shirts and tank tops to wear to school the next day. They also went online to round up support for their anti-bullying cause, which they dubbed a “sea of pink.” It worked. The next day, dozens of students were outfitted with the discount shirts, but even better – hundreds of students showed up wearing their own pink clothes, some from head to toe. The bullies were reportedly never heard from again. This year, Feb. 29 is Pink Shirt Day in B.C. and other parts of Canada, an annual anti-bullying event that started after the now-famous 2007 “sea of pink” campaign. The need for awareness and action against bullying remains as strong as ever, say those involved in the pink event, including local radio station CKNW, Black Press, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver, and London Drugs, where people can buy the official ‘Bullying Stops Here’ pink shirts for 2012. “Awareness of what bullying is and understanding that it hurts is important,” says Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver president and CEO Carolyn Tuckwell. “It isn’t just a rite of passage. It doesn’t have to happen. And it’s relevant to everyone, whether in school, after school or in the workplace.” According to www.bullyingcanada.ca, as many as 25 per cent of children in Grades 4 to 6 have been bullied and approximately one in 10 children have bullied others, while a 2004 study published in the Medical Journal of Pediatrics found that about one in seven Canadian children aged 11 to 16 are victims of bullying. It is important to recognize what bullying is, and that it happens in many forms – verbally, socially, physically and online (cyber bullying), says Tuckwell. “By wearing pink, people show they’re making that commitment, to not let bullying happen,” she says. In 2009, 20,000 pink shirts were sold and in 2010, 30,000 helped the effort. Last year, 46,000 T-Shirts were sold and this year we hope to sell 60,000. Tuckwell and others emphasize that the pink shirt is secondary to raising awareness about bullying and getting people involved.

CHILDREN’S CORNER Sue Rossi The Shuswap Early Childhood Development committee believes in the importance of the investment in young children, and their families, in order for them to have the best possible future. Our committee uses local research, knowledge and skills to determine how we address the needs of families living in the Salmon Arm region. We take the time to develop a strategic plan that looks at what resources and services are available and which ones do we need to cultivate. Our most recent addition to services sponsored by the Shuswap Early Childhood Development Committee is the new Mother Goose program offered at the North Canoe Elementary School. In the next month, the committee is supporting the Baby Talk pro-

gram in partnership with Interior Health at the Salmon Arm Public Health Unit. We share information about these and other free or lowcost programs through our monthly calendar and Children’s Services Directory. A portion of our funding is received from Success by 6. Just recently, Success by 6, provincially, received a new annual investment of $3.4 million from the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Last year, Success by 6 provided funding for 646 different early childhood development programs in 400 BC communities with the support of an estimated 140 local community planning tables. Our Shuswap Early Childhood Development Committee is scheduling our upcoming annual strategic planning event. We welcome your input and ideas as community members. If you would like to join our committee or participate at our strategic planning retreat, please contact me at 250-833-0164 ext. 6 or email ecd@shuswapchildrens.ca.

#Dick Owings, half of One Camel Short with Murray MacDonald, plays an intricate melody as part of the fifth annual evening to raise funds for and awareness of Akonjo Village in Kenya.

Bacigalupo chairs library board At the Feb. 15 meeting of the Okanagan Regional Library Board of Trustees, ten new members joined for their first meeting. The 25-member ORL board is comprised of representatives from municipal councils, regional districts, and First Nations councils throughout the library district, and with municipal elections held last November, ten board positions now have new representatives. Executive members were also chosen, with Ted Bacigalupo from the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District being elected as Chair for his fifth year. Other executive include: - Carol Zanon (West Kelowna), Vice Chair - Mark Pendergraft (Okanagan Similkameen Regional District), Finance Chair - Peter Schierbeck (Peachland), Policy and Planning Chair - Marilyn Harkness (Princeton), Personnel Chair At the meeting the board also heard an update on construction progress of the new Vernon branch, set to open to the public on May 5. Substantial contributions from Telus, the Vernon Friends of the Library, and community members are being explored that will make the new branch the most technologically up-to-date in the ORL system. This grand opening will coincide with the Vernon Friends of the Library Book Sale, held from May 3-6 at the Vernon Curling Rink, so book lovers in the North Okanagan will be able to enjoy a weekend of special activities. Additionally, the board discussed plans for other branches. The Westbank branch will be undergoing renovations later this spring to increase its size from 6,000 square feet to 10,000 square feet, in recognition of the area’s growing population. The Summerland branch is also due for size upgrades and the board will receive a report on recommendations for next steps at the next meeting in May.

ING BULLY STOPS HERE

JAMES MURRAY/MARKET NEWS

Support anti-bullying

I

t started in September 2007, when two teens at a Nova Scotia high school stood up for a younger student. David Shepherd and Travis Price, both in Grade 12, heard about a Grade 9 student at their school who had been bullied and threatened for wearing a pink polo shirt on his first day of school. They decided they should do something about it and went to a discount store, where they bought 50 pink shirts and tank tops to wear to school the next day. They also went online to round up support for their anti-bullying cause, which they dubbed a “sea of pink.” It worked. The next day, dozens of students were outfitted with the discount shirts, but even better – hundreds of students showed up wearing their own pink clothes, some from head to toe. The bullies were reportedly never heard from again. This year, Feb. 29 is Pink Shirt Day in B.C. and other parts of Canada, an annual anti-bullying event that started after the now-famous 2007 “sea of pink” campaign. The need for awareness and action against bullying remains as strong as ever, say those involved in the pink event, including local radio station CKNW, Black Press, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver, and London Drugs, where people can buy the official ‘Bullying Stops Here’ pink shirts for 2012. “Awareness of what bullying is and understanding that it hurts is important,” says Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Vancouver president and CEO Carolyn Tuckwell. “It isn’t just a rite of passage. It doesn’t have to happen. And it’s relevant to everyone, whether in school, after school or in the workplace.” According to www.bullyingcanada.ca, as many as 25 per cent of children in Grades 4 to 6 have been bullied and approximately one in 10 children have bullied others, while a 2004 study published in the Medical Journal of Pediatrics found that about one in seven Canadian children aged 11 to 16 are victims of bullying. It is important to recognize what bullying is, and that it happens in many forms – verbally, socially, physically and online (cyber bullying), says Tuckwell. “By wearing pink, people show they’re making that commitment, to not let bullying happen,” she says. In 2009, 20,000 pink shirts were sold and in 2010, 30,000 helped the effort. Last year, 46,000 T-Shirts were sold and this year we hope to sell 60,000. Tuckwell and others emphasize that the pink shirt is secondary to raising awareness about bullying and getting people involved.

CHILDREN’S CORNER Sue Rossi The Shuswap Early Childhood Development committee believes in the importance of the investment in young children, and their families, in order for them to have the best possible future. Our committee uses local research, knowledge and skills to determine how we address the needs of families living in the Salmon Arm region. We take the time to develop a strategic plan that looks at what resources and services are available and which ones do we need to cultivate. Our most recent addition to services sponsored by the Shuswap Early Childhood Development Committee is the new Mother Goose program offered at the North Canoe Elementary School. In the next month, the committee is supporting the Baby Talk pro-

gram in partnership with Interior Health at the Salmon Arm Public Health Unit. We share information about these and other free or lowcost programs through our monthly calendar and Children’s Services Directory. A portion of our funding is received from Success by 6. Just recently, Success by 6, provincially, received a new annual investment of $3.4 million from the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Last year, Success by 6 provided funding for 646 different early childhood development programs in 400 BC communities with the support of an estimated 140 local community planning tables. Our Shuswap Early Childhood Development Committee is scheduling our upcoming annual strategic planning event. We welcome your input and ideas as community members. If you would like to join our committee or participate at our strategic planning retreat, please contact me at 250-833-0164 ext. 6 or email ecd@shuswapchildrens.ca.

Sex and the Kitty

Here comes the new divide in Africa

GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer Sudan has been bombing South Sudan again, only a couple of months after the two countries split apart. Sudan is mostly Muslim and South Sudan is predominantly Christian — but the quarrel is about oil, not religion. Yet, it is really about religion, too, since the two countries would never have split apart along the current border if not for the religious divide. Ivory Coast was split along the same Muslim-Christian lines for nine years, although the shooting ended last year and there is an attempt underway to sew the country back together under an elected government. But, in Nigeria, Africa’s biggest country by far, the situation is going from bad to worse, with the Islamist terrorists of Boko Haram murdering people all over the country in the name of imposing sharia law on the entire nation. “The situation we have in our hands is even worse than the civil war that we fought [in 1967-1970, which killed between one- and three-million people],” said President Goodluck Jonathan. That’s a major exaggeration — the current death toll in Nigeria from terrorist attacks

and army reprisals is probably only a few hundred a month — but the potential for much greater slaughter is certainly there. In an interview with Reuters, Jonathan said: “If [Boko Haram] clearly identify themselves now and say . . . this is the reason why we are confronting government or this is the reason why we destroyed some innocent people and their properties, why not [talk to them]?” But, it’s pointless: He already knows who they are and what they want. “Boko Haram,” loosely translated, means “Western education is forbidden,” and the organization’s declared aim is to overthrow the government and impose Islamic law on all of Nigeria. In a 40-minute audio message posted on YouTube two weeks ago, the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, threatened his next step would be to carry out a bombing campaign against Nigeria’s secondary schools and universities. This is not only vicious, it is also completely loony. There is no way Boko Haram could conquer the entire country. Only half of Nigerians are Muslims and they are much poorer than the country’s 80-million Christians. The Christian south is where the oil is — and the ports and most of the industry, so that’s where most of the money is, too. The same pattern is repeated in many other African countries: Poor Muslim north, prosperous Christian south.

There was no plan behind this. Islam spread slowly south from North Africa, which was conquered by Arab armies in the seventh century, while Christianity spread rapidly inland once European colonies appeared on the African coast in the last few hundred years. The line where Islam and Christianity meet runs across Africa about 1,100 kilometres north of the equator (except in Ethiopia, where the Christians have the highlands and the Muslims the lowlands). In general, the Muslims ended up with the desert and semi-desert regions of Africa because Islam had to make it all the way across the Sahara, while the more fertile and richer regions nearer to the

“The same pattern is repeated in many other African countries: Poor Muslim north, prosperous Christian south.”

equator and all the way down to South Africa are mainly Christian because the Europeans arrived by sea with much greater economic and military power. But, some 350-million Africans live in countries that straddle the Christian-Muslim fault line. There probably won’t be a full-scale civil war in Nigeria this time around, but Boko Haram is targeting Christians indiscriminately.

www.rosmanrv.com

The Nigerian army, not known for its discipline and restraint, is almost as indiscriminate in targeting devout but innocent Muslims in the northern states that are home to the terrorist organization. Christians are already moving out of the north and Muslims out of the south. It will get worse in Nigeria and it is getting bad again in what used to be Sudan — and Ethiopia is an accident just waiting to happen. Even Ivory Coast may not really be out of the woods yet. There is a small but real risk these conflicts could some day coalesce into a general Muslim-Christian confrontation that would kill millions and convulse all of Africa. Christianity and Islam have been at war most of the time since Muslim armies conquered half of the thenChristian world, from Syria to Spain, in the seventh and eighth centuries. There was the great Christian counter-attack of the Crusades in the 12th century, the Muslim conquest of Turkey and the Balkans in the 15th and 16th centuries and the European conquest of almost the entire Muslim world in the 18th to 20th centuries. It is a miserable history and, in some places, it is likely to continue for some time to come. But nowhere in subSaharan Africa does the frontier between Muslim-majority and Christian-majority areas derive from conquest: These populations are not looking for revenge. Boko Haram’s style

of radical Islamism is an import from somewhere else and it would be a terrible mistake for large numbers of Muslim Nigerians to embrace it. On the other hand, it will be a terrible mistake if Nigeria doesn’t get a chokechain on its army, whose brutal actions are all too likely to drive Nigerian Muslims in exactly that direction. -Gwynne Dyer is a London-based independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Chase Museum visited by Simon Fraser University A crew of Simon Fraser University archaeology students from Vancouver, led by Dr. Barbara Winter, visited the Chase and District Museum last weekend to help clean up smoke-damaged artifacts. The students joined in on the restoration project near the end of the arduous process made necessary following arson attacks last July. Michael Koole is one of the visiting students who reported after the visit: “It was a good experience to visit the Chase museum, participating in an important project, and giving back to the community.”

How to hold onto children stunt healthy development through the flight from feeling, immaturity and lack of individuality, aggression, the making of bullies and victims, precocious and inappropriate sexuality, and difficulty learning. Maté gave instruction on ‘how to hold onto our kids’ (or to reclaim them) through, collecting the child, inviting dependence, making relationship the priority, having structures and restrictions, and providing attachment-friendly discipline.

Dr. Gabor Maté is a physician and bestselling author from Vancouver, whose books have been published in nearly 20 languages worldwide. Maté spoke to an audience of approximately 300 educators, health professionals and parents Monday, Feb. 20 at the Adams Lake Indian Band Conference Centre. Conference spokesperson Marnie Baxter remarked: “The audience turnout is great, a very positive response to Dr. Maté’s full-day workshop.” The workshop title, Why Relationships Matter, covered what causes developmental problems, bullying and addictions, and how to solve them. There was detailed discussion for professionals, outlining the mental-health implications of early childhood emotional loss, whether due to abuse in the family or stress on the parents. The impact of the environment on brain development was discussed, along with ways of recognizing and helping heal the negative consequences of early loss. Importance of early child rearing was em-

Maté stressed that relationships are fundamental to functioning brain-circuit growth, especially access to a consistently available, emotionally stable, nonstressed, nurturing parent or caregiver. He spoke of ‘The biology of loss’ and how it can be passed through generations: intrapartum stress, early separa-

tion, postpartum stress and childhood abuse. Maté said, “Implicit memory has a life-long impact when people are influenced by past experience without any awareness that they are remembering.” He continued: “If our society were truly to appreciate the significance of children’s emotional ties throughout the first years of life, it would no longer tolerate children growing up, or parents having to struggle, in situations that cannot possibly nourish healthy

growth.” Peer orientation versus parental relationships was explained, noting how attachment supports parenting and child-rearing. He said there are six ways of attaching: senses, sameness, belonging and loyalty, significance, feeling and being known. When parents are engaged in child rearing, attachment or the drive from the child for physical and emotional closeness and contact are a result. Peer orientation can

Heat take home hardware By Scott Koch CONTRIBUTOR

The Chase Heat Junior Hockey Season concluded with two home games and a Sunday night Awards Banquet. Friday night in the local barn our boys took on the dastardly Kamloops Storm. A very entertaining game ended with a 3-1 loss. The three stars were 1st Jacob Mattes, 2nd Aiden Silzer-Hooker and 3rd Jordan Steel. The lone goal was off the stick of Kurtis Johnson from Jared Seutter and Steel on the power play. Mattes went the

distance stopping 40 of 43 between the pipes. Saturday night saw the third-place North Okanagan Knights take a 8-2 victory back to Armstrong in the team’s last regular season game. It was a costly victory for the Knights, as three thirdperiod tilts resulted in injuries to two of the Armstrong players. Chase got goals from Kevin Leschuk on the powerplay and Reese Forman shorthanded. This spirited contest was closer then the score indicates with all the puck luck going to the Knights. Mattes once again provided

top-notch backstopping in net. Sunday night saw the first annual Awards Banquet take place at the community hall. Board members and team volunteers put on a sumptuous dinner prior to the presentation. The packed hall crowd was clearly there to see which of their favourites would go home with some shiny new hardware.

Award winners: Carlin Family Award (Top Scorer) to Salmon Arm’s Kevin Leschuk; Ernie & Mary Erickson Award (Top Scholastic Player) to Reece

Forman; Blue Spruce Award (Unsung Hero) to Jared Seutter; Norm & Jean Stelter Award (Most Improved) to Jacob Mattes; Heat Jr. Hockey Society (Most Dedicated) to Ethan Kalugin; Silver Fox Award (Rookie of the Year) to Reece Forman; Bob Koch Memorial Award (Most Sportsmanlike) to Jared Seutter; Chase Heat Award (Fan Favourite) to Owen Barker; Harry & Jane Torbohm Award (Top Defenceman) to Mitchell Rosko; Patterson Family Award (Most Valuable Player) to Kurtis Johnson

The entire Heat Organization believes that each of the players is an award winner. During the season the team won some, lost a few, provided enjoyable entertainment and will be back with a vengeance next season. The hours that were put in this year by the society, hockey operations and volunteers were countless. Support for the team has been much appreciated. A Winter Rust Removing Dance will take place March 3 for $20, and Spring Camp goes March 30 to April 1.

When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You must not tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many beautiful years. I gave to you my love, you can only guess How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you’ve shown me, But now it’s time I travel on, alone. So grieve a while for me if you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your hearts. I won’t be far away, for life goes on. So, if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near and if you listen with your hearts, You’ll hear all my love around you, Soft and clear; and then when you must Come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a Smile and say, “Welcome Home.”

TERRENCE “TERRY” STANLEY LINES 1929 - 2012 It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of our husband, Dad, Gramps and GreatGrandpa, Terrence (Terry) Stanley Lines. Terry passed away peacefully in Salmon Arm, BC on February 18, 2012 at the age of 82 years. Terry was one of four children to the late Wes and Edna Lines and was the beloved husband to Yvonne for 60 wonderful years. Terry will forever be remembered by his sister Isadora Shank and brothers Lawrence and David Lines. He will be lovingly remembered by his 8 children Rod, Bruce, Sandra, Wendy, Karen, Dale, Donna and Bev, caring in-laws, and deeply missed by his 19 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. Terry will be missed by countless friends and other family whom were blessed to know him. Terry married his lovely wife Yvonne in Edmonton, Alberta in 1952 and began farming and raising a family in Athabasca, Alberta. In 1956, Terry became a Forestry Service Officer, moving his family around northern Alberta. In 1959, Terry moved his family back to his farm in Athabasca where the last of his children were born. In 1966, Terry joined the Northwest Territories Game Management Service as a Fish and Game Officer. He moved his family throughout the Northwest Territories, where he experienced many adventures including training guides, vaccinating buffalo, enforcing laws, and trekking to the edge of the world in the high Arctic. He was known as the great white hunter and worked his way through the ranks retiring from the government in 1976 as the Regional Superintendent of Fish and Wildlife. Terry and Yvonne travelled to the sunny Okanagan and decided to move to Salmon Arm, BC. where Terry owned a garage and fuel station, patrolled as a security officer at a sawmill and farmed in his spare time. In 1984, Terry and Yvonne moved back to Athabasca where he started a bulk food store and deli, then eventually re-settled back into the outskirts of Salmon Arm. Terry finally began his retirement and built his own houses, farmed his land, enjoyed many family gatherings and had fun travelling with Yvonne as snowbirds to the U.S. for 13 years. Terry and Yvonne eventually left the mountaintop and moved under the cliffs to a quiet little street in Enderby. This is where he enjoyed his garden, pond, workshop and his dog, Lady and always made time to be a helpful neighbour, fun loving Gramps and Great Grandpa. Terry and Yvonne recently moved back to Salmon Arm where they made a new home for themselves and continued to enjoy family and friends. Terry was a man of integrity and faith who was committed to instil strong values in his family. He was a generous, kind hearted and hard-working man that enjoyed socializing with friends and loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Terry was passionate about hunting, fishing and being outdoors. He also loved travelling to visit family, gardening and watching sports. A prayer service will be held at Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm on Wednesday February 22, 2012 at 5:00 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Salmon Arm BC, on Thursday, February23, 2012 at 11 am. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Intensive Care Unit of the Shuswap Lake General Hospital or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
