British Columbia’s Labour Relations Board (LRB) has ruled public school teachers in the province may initiate further job action and walk out of the classrooms. A full withdrawal of services for up to three instructional days is allowed by the ruling, providing prior notice of at least two school days is given. Following that, teachers may also be off the job one out of five days a week, again with notice of not less than two days. Falling on the cusp of Education

Minister George Abbott tabling legislation on Feb. 28 to force an end of the teachers’ job action, the LRB is effectively providing B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) members a legal route to escalate the current limited strike action. Cariboo-Chilcotin Teachers’ Federation president Joan Erb says LRB’s decision on a limited withdrawal of services is “reasonable.” “It provides the best of both worlds to both sides. “Parents will be happy because there will be two days minimum notice given.” The thing that really surprises her is picket lines are not allowed in the ruling,

she adds. Because LRB has not set essential-service limits for International Union Of Operating Engineers (IUOE) members, the school support staff can’t be barred from work duties by any BCTF disruptions, she explains. That is good news in the sense that their IUOE colleagues won’t be faced with any blocked entries, Erb says, adding she is meeting with the local IUOE president this week to find out how those members might react to escalated strike action.

Nothing tame about wildlife dinner Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Grizzly bear pâté, beaver, moose and deer were just some of the tasty treats people were able to sample at the Lone Butte Fish & Wildlife Association (LBFWA) Wild Game Dinner at the 100 Mile Community Hall, Feb. 25. Roast bison was the main course, and LBFWA member Jude Dion says the dinner was phenomenal and the dance that followed had people up and cutting a rug until nearly 2 a.m. Earlier in the day, the hall was filled with displays and demonstrations by local outdoors organizations. “The different groups really did a super job inside the hall. It was something to see.” Free antler scoring was also offered, with the most notable trophy of the day being a mule deer antler that scored 190 inches. Chris Nickless photo “That’s excellent,” says Dion, adding 175 is the minimum for having a score registered in the Amaranta Chrétien, left, samples moose sausage served by Ken Wildlife Records Club of BC Big Game Records of LePage at the Lone Butte Fish & Wildlife Association Wild Game British Columbia book.

DVD offers safety tips for children Injury is the leading cause of death among Canadian children and youth. Preventable injuries, such as falls, burns, choking and poisonings, are the most common cause of hospital visits for young children in Canada. Each year, approximately 2,900 infants, toddlers and preschoolers under five years go to BC Children’s Hospital emergency department for treatment of preventable injuries. Up to 90 per cent of these injuries are pre-

ventable. Give Your Child a Safe Start helps parents, caregivers, and educators raise awareness of the prevention of unintentional injuries in this age group. This new educational resource provides

safety tips on the prevention of burns and scalds, choking, falls, and poisoning. It also gives straightforward useful information on car safety, product safety, safe sleeping, and water safety. The 30-minute video includes powerful stories from parents and caregivers whose children were injured, often in a split second.

BC Children’s Hospital, with financial support from the Provincial Health Services Authority’s Population and Public Health Program, is distributing Give Your Child a Safe Start DVDs to public health units and non-profit organizations across British Columbia, along with an accompanying booklet, for use in pre-natal classes,

STRIKE… from page 1 BCTF president Susan Lambert says that given its lack of success in getting government to meet them half way, its members are compelled to try to increase the pressure on both its employer and government. Erb says she hopes the teachers don’t go out until after the weekend because they have an important Pro-D [conference] on today (March 2). “So we are extremely hopeful that we will not be escalating job action before Monday. We have Dr. Martin Brokenleg coming in; we have spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours organizing this Pro-D event.” The legislation will see an end to the withdrawal of non-essential services underway since last September, prevent any further withdrawal of duties, and assign mediation. Meanwhile, the

Local teams head out of town JOIN CLUB for weekend hockey tourneys MAYVIN Arlene Jongbloets Free Press

Last weekend was quiet for minor hockey, with the RE/MAX Cup adult hockey tournament tying up home ice at the South Cariboo Rec. Centre and Rolf Zeis Memorial Arena in Lac la Hache. A few teams played in out-of-town tournaments, including the Sunrise Ford Mustangs Peewee squad which travelled to McBride. They started with a 5-2 loss to Edson, with both 100 Mile House goals scored by Masen Fernandes. The Mustangs had a tough

go with Chase in game 2, suffering an 11-3 loss with goals by Caden MacMillan, Fernandes and Reid Davidson. The team then lost to McBride 9-5, with their last three goals scored in the third period. Davidson was good for a hat trick. Fernandes notched one as did Kolton Allwood. Atom division Primal Electric Shockers and Free Press Sharp Shooters were in Lillooet where they had mixed results. The Shockers opened with an 8-5 loss to Lillooet, but turned it around in game 2 against Williams Lake with an 11-0 shutout victory. Game

2 ended in a 4-2 Kamloops victory, and the Shockers’ final with Lillooet ended in a 4-3 loss. Free Press skated to a 2-and-2 record, opening with an 8-3 loss to Kamloops and following up with a 5-2 defeat to Mission. They met Williams Lake in game 3 and dominated with an 11-1 victory. They met Williams Lake again and won 10-3. Novice Central RV Ramblers and Transformers Collision squeezed in a game at Rolf Zeis where the Ramblers led all the way to a 7-2 win, with a hat trick scored by Mason Pincott.

Salmon disease surveillance in B.C. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is seeking comments on a disease surveillance plan for salmon in British Columbia. The aim of the surveillance is to get a comprehensive picture of the health status of B.C. salmon. Fish will be tested for three diseases: infectious haematopoietic necrosis, infectious pancreatic necrosis and infectious salmon anaemia. The CFIA will lead the surveillance with support from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), the province of B.C. and industry. All testing, as well as any activities undertaken to respond to confirmed cases of disease, will be directed by science, international guidelines and national aquatic animal-health requirements. Approximately 5,000 wild salmon will be collected per year for a minimum of two years, starting in this spring. In addition, the CFIA will evaluate ongoing, industry-led testing of farmed salmon. The design of the

proposed surveillance plan was based on internationally accepted surveillance principles and developed by the CFIA in consultation with DFO, the province of B.C. and the United States Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. A summary of the initiative is available on the CFIA website at www.inspection. To request a copy of the detailed draft surveillance initiative, or to submit comments, contact NAAHPPNSAA@ Comments will be accepted until March 16, 2012. For more information on salmon diseases, visit www. aquatic or call 1-800442-2342.
