B.C. teachers withdraw services

Teachers in Grand Forks and the surrounding area gathered at Gyro Park for a CUPE-organized rally on Tuesday. A withdrawal of services began this past Monday for three days. .CASSANDRA CHIN PHOTOS

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Monday saw the start of a three-day, full-scale withdrawal of services by teachers across B.C. Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association (BDTA), pointed out that information leaflets will be distributed at various schools during the job action. “We have to look at the details,” he said Monday. “The LRB (Labour Relations Board) ruled we are not allowed to block any of the entrances of school sites. Technically, we’re not allowed to call it a picket, but we will be handing out leaflets and information to the public.” The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) organized a rally on Tuesday, March 6 in Gyro Park, which included several speakers. “Teachers (walked) from the BDTA office (near Flexus) and met at Gyro Park,” stated Sabourin. According to the LRB ruling, teachers can withdraw their services for three days this week and then one day a week every week after that, provided that Bill 22 legislation hasn’t been introduced. Members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) met on Feb. 28 and 29 to discuss the escalation of job action in response to the government’s proposed Bill 22, the Education Improvement Act. According to a BCTF press release, Bill 22 seeks to impose a net-zero contract, restrict the ability to negotiate improved learning conditions and eliminate fundamental civil and labour rights for teachers. According to a press release from the Ministry of Education, Education Minister George Abbott stated Bill 22 demands careful debate and full understanding by all members. “Bill 22 sets a cooling off period and suspends the teachers’ union strike action while calling on the assistance of a mediator,” he stated. “It also implements the $165-million

Fe ve r? “ G o t S p ri n gJoin Flexus

Learning Improvement Fund and other measures that will play a fundamental role in the future of education in our province.” Abbott and the ministry stated they were disappointed by the BCTF’s decision to hold the strike. “A strike of this nature will significantly disrupt student learning and creates tremendous concern for parents and families,” he said. “Parents are encouraged to find child care arrangements.” Sabourin added he hasn’t heard anything from the government about legislation as of Monday. “(As of Monday) the legislation (was) in its second reading, so it (was) still under debate. Once it gets done with its second reading, it will then have to do a third reading but it depends on how long the debate goes,” Sabourin said. “It will be my assumption that the earliest the bill could be passed and brought into law would the end of this week and very possibly into next week.” In a letter to parents in School District 51 (SD51), Superintendent Michael Strukoff noted that during the three-day strike, “there will be no classes, buses will not run and parents need to keep their children home.” Earlier this week, Strukoff stated, “There seems to be a pattern between the disputes between BCTF and the government. I truly hope both parties find some alternatives and allow the kids to continue with school and things return to normal by the end of spring break.” Spring break is the last two weeks of March, beginning on March 19. The SD51 website will be updated to keep parents in the district informed and any questions can be directed to Strukoff at 250-442-8258. Teachers will be back in the classroom tomorrow (March 8). Of the 32,209 teachers, 87 per cent (27,946 teachers) voted yes in the province-wide vote conducted Feb. 28 and 29.

Daring dog rescue near York Road on Saturday

RDKB Area C out of BEDC after 2012 in budget plan

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

In the early morning hours of Saturday, March 3, Grand Forks RCMP, Boundary Animal Control and Grand Forks Search and Rescue were called out to assist a couple and their dog, who was stuck on a steep cliff. At 1:08 a.m., RCMP were dispatched to assist two people who were stranded on a cliff just above the rail grade near the north end of York Road. The couple attempted to climb the hill to rescue their dog but became stranded themselves on the hill because it was too steep and they were unable to climb back down. From there, Grand Forks Search and Rescue assisted the couple to safety. “The two constables climbed the hill in the early morning hours and located the two that were stranded. They directed them to a safe location to get off the hill,” explained Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “Once the couple was safe, members attempted to get the dog down but the dog had gotten itself lodged in the cliff side. It couldn’t get down and wouldn’t go up, so the constables made the determination that it was too treacherous to continue to rescue the dog at that time.” Later that day, Grand Forks Search and Rescue brought their rope crew in and managed to scale down, put a harness around the dog (Hasha) and repel down to the bottom. Fire Chief Dale Heriot added, “We were

able to locate the dog and execute the rescue. Everybody is okay – the dog was checked out by one of the local veterinarians. It had (some) scrapes and bruises but otherwise it was good. (Hasha) was quite scared and quite happy when we got him down.” “Nobody got hurt, so that’s the important part,” Harrison went on to say.


Interfor continues upgrades, lost-time accident free since 2011 CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

International Forest Products Limited (Interfor) in Grand Forks is happy to note that the mill is one-year lost-time accident free since Jan. 13, 2011. Interfor was also ranked 14th out of 50 sawmills in British Columbia and has a medical incident rate (MIR) of 1.9. This rank places Grand Forks’ sawmill second best in all of Interfor’s productions in B.C.. “We’ve gone through the whole year lost-time free,” explained Don Johnson, plant manager for Interfor’s mill site in Grand Forks. “If you look at day 365 plus the days up until now, it’s pretty respectable.” Lost-time accidents are when production and the mill have to stop due to a workplace injury. “We’ve had some first aid minor things, but nothing serious, nothing that would have someone go off the job.” As a part of their job, workers at the sawmill go through regular work procedures and processes such as work reviews. “I’m pretty proud of everybody that’s here and that they’ve managed to string together days without a serious or loss-time injury,” stated Johnson. “It’s indicative that it can be done in an industrial environment with a little bit of hard work and commitment.” Grand Forks mill upgrades Upgrades to Interfor’s sawmill in Grand Forks and Castlegar are ahead of schedule. In Grand Forks, the plan involves the installation of a new small log line to replace the existing

two-line facility. The project is budgeted at $19 million and also includes the installation of an automated lumber grading system and incorporates the same technology recently installed at Interfor’s Adams Lake sawmill. “We’re in the process of demolition at the moment,” explained Johnson. “We’ve bought some equipment and we’ve ordered a lot of equipment but it won’t be here for several months yet. We still need to install it all so there’s a lot of work ahead of us. We’re well on our way and we’re committed to getting her done.” Demolition of a portion of the mill where the new double-length canter, which helps position and feed logs, will be placed is currently at the halfway mark. “Basically we’re upgrading our sawmill and putting down a new breakdown, what we call a double-length canter,” concluded Johnson. In Castlegar, the project is budgeted to be $5 million and consists of a series of high return projects, including an automated lumber grading system. The grading system is aimed at increasing productivity and value extraction at the mill. Upgrades at both sawmills are expected to be complete sometime in 2013. According to reports, when completed, the mills will operate with a combined capacity of 375 million board feet on a full two-shift basis. Interfor’s board of directors announced in November 2011 that they had approved a $24 million capital plan to upgrade the sawmills in Grand Forks and Castlegar.

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary’s (RDKB) Area C (Christina Lake) discussed budget cuts at this year’s town hall meeting to increase funding for milfoil, including a withdrawal from the Boundary Economic Committee (BEDC) after 2012. In the five-year finance plan, Area C Director Grace McGregor noted after 2012, Area C will no longer participate in the BEDC. Until then, Area C’s proposed budget for 2012 is $173,811, down from $179,905 in 2011. As a result, Area C plans to increase spending for noxious weed control, most notably, milfoil to $295,906 ($141,889 more than the previous year). In 2011, Area C spent $153,350 on milfoil. “We need to get on with it, we need to double our divers, which is what we’re going to do for the short term and we need to make plans for the long term,” said McGregor. “The plans for the long term include the milfoil weevil. They’ve had very good luck with the weevil in other areas.” McGregor hopes to use the Solar Aquatics System to help develop a weevil-breeding project and eventually sell the weevils to other troubled milfoil communities. The Solar Aquatics System is located adjacent to the Christina Living Arts and Welcome Centre and filters the waste water from the facility. “If we can become a supplier, we can probably offset our costs in the long run,” she added. “We all know how milfoil got into the lake, so we have to be really careful with what we do with it.” The current budget figures are only proposed and will be determined at the end of March. The recreation commission may also see a decrease from $77,573 to $62,248. Alongside Area D, Area C also participates in sub-regional activities, including the $30,000 budget towards the Boundary Museum Service. The Grand Forks Curling Rink, another sub-regional service, may see an increase from $35,529 to $40,869. For regional parks and trails, there may be a slight decrease from $186,330 to $184,731, while fire protection in Area C may also see an increase from $384,303 to $667,709. This year, the animal control contract with Craig Caruso and his company Good Governance Solutions is to expire, which leaves the RDKB to determine what will happen next. The RDKB will also be rewriting the animal control bylaw, which is considered dated, to include different aspects like barking to be included into a newer bylaw. Animal control for Area C is proposed to increase from $110,862 to $117,874, while mosquito control may see a slight dip from $28,835 to $28,735. In terms of the regional library services, which may be set to increase from $292,725 to $355,331, McGregor is opposed to supporting other services with Area C funds until other districts pitch in for the costs of milfoil removal. There may also be a decrease in 9-1-1 emergency communications from $914,218 to $726,209. In 2011, Area C spent $66,688 for grant-in-aids, and the proposed budgeted for $57,241 in 2012. According to Statistics Canada’s census, Area C saw a population decrease since 2006 from 1,435 to 1,391, a negative 3.1 per cent population change.

❚ Our View

Better if city water chlorinated Despite being small in stature, the City of Greenwood accomplished something big by taking home the Best Municipal Water in the World award from the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting Competition in West Virginia. Mayor Nipper Kettle and the city have been featured in articles and news stories across the country. Greenwood does not use chlorination and draws its water from three untreated wells, which are pumped from an aquifer. The fact that the city down Highway 3 and its awardwinning water isn’t chlorinated has some in Grand Forks wondering why that city’s water has to be chlorinated – Grand Forks doesn’t have a filtration or purification system but rather uses a chlorination system. While having untreated water that is free of chlorine in Grand Forks would be good, it isn’t ideal. According to Sasha Bird, Grand Forks’ manager of technical services and utilities, the city is mandated by Interior Health to chlorinate water because of E. coli concerns and has been doing so since 2007. While E. coli is found in humans’ lower intestine and most strains don’t cause harm, some variations have been known to cause food poisoning. E. coli had a detrimental effect on the community of Walkerton, Ont. in 2000, when a deadly strain of the bacteria got into the water supply and people began suffering a series of ailments, including diarrhea – in some cases the ailments led to death. That community’s utilities commission initially said that its water was OK but eventually issued an advisory for residents to boil water. Health Canada’s website states that based on current scientific data, the benefits of chlorinating drinking water is greater than the byproducts that are produced from chlorination, such as trihalomethanes (THMs). Greenwood should be commended for having untreated water and in fact, it has with the award from the competition. But places like Greenwood, that don’t chlorinate water, are more exceptions than the rule. Walkerton was a tragedy and if it can be prevented by the use of chlorine in Grand Forks’ water, then so be it. Besides, if people in the city want to have better tasting drinking water, there are always filters and faucet attachments that can filter out chlorine and other water contaminants.

Once again Canadian politics head south While I am influenced by American culture, I find it disconcerting that Canadian politicians are using American-style tactics more and more. During the last federal election, it seemed like there were more attack ads being used and it has been suggested by some that then-leader Michael Ignatieff and the federal Liberals fared poorly due to those advertisements. The Liberals lost their status as official opposition party (an honour that would go to the lateJack Layton and the federal New Democratic Party) and in fact, Ignatieff was even beaten in his own riding (Etobicoke – Lakeshore). The attack ads against Ignatieff began long before an election was announced and some accused him of returning to Canada after a three-decade long absence strictly to gain power. The election is supposedly history but accusations of robocalling – automated phone calls –

❚ Yu Speak


have been made recently against a number of political parties. The automated calls were made to voters and allegedly told them that their polling station had changed locations. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the federal Conservatives have been accused and in turn, they’ve accused the Liberals. Conservative aides are denying any sort of dirty election tactics were used but according to a March 3 story in the Toronto Star, 14 Conservative Members of Parliament signed with a Republican company – Front Porch Strategies. According to The Star’s Linda Diebel, “On its website, Front

Porch Strategies, a ‘voter contact and constituency outreach’ firm based in Columbus, Ohio, boasts: ‘In May’s federal elections, Front Porch Strategies won all 14 of their races.’” The RCMP and Elections Canada are currently investigating the situation and the latter traced some of the automated calls to a disposable mobile phone that was registered to someone with the name Pierre Poutine. Attack ads, robocalls and the like are tactics that are slowly souring me to politics. Taking aim at a politician’s poor record or hypocritical comments is fair game for sure but propaganda and dirty tricks aren’t necessary and give Canadian politics a black eye. If the robocall investigation does find out who Pierre Poutine really is and what party he was working for, an attack ad for the next federal election would be just deserts, though.

Time for change Editor: Time for change. You can spend all you want on cutting edge technology of the pedagogy. Good teaching, good learning outcomes; poor teachers, poor learning outcomes until we solve the problem of assessing teachers and tying their pay scale to performance, anything we attempt to accomplish with technology, personalized learning, anything that is, will only have partial success, if any. Until then, we will remain somewhere below fully meeting expectations. Once again inclusiveness is to the boards as assessment is to the teachers.

Curling club “rocks” Editor: Our men’s (curling) team Bothamley from Creston was one of 16 teams who came to curl in the BC Masters Playdowns that were held at the Grand Forks Curling Club from March 1 to 4. This was the second time that our team came to curl at your curling club, the first being at the Retiree’s Bonspiel held in December of 2011. At each visit, we were treated with

great hospitality and there was great ice and great service that made our curling experience in Grand Forks memorable. We look forward to coming back in the 2012/13 season and we would like to thank Mel Lungle, Guy Dubeault, Paul Plamondon and Dwight Hagle and the other volunteers at the Grand Forks Curling Club for making this event a huge success. Grand Forks must be proud to have such a well-run curling facility. Ross Gowan, Creston


Pure water Editor: Greenwood is acknowledged for having the best drinking water in the world (according to judges at the 22nd annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting in West Virginia). As least somebody has their priorities right. We used to have decent drinking water until they decided to poison us with chlorine. Chlorine does in peoples’ thyroid glands. Thanks a lot. Rather than dumping hundreds of gallons of bleach into our drinking water how about testing the level of E. coli and if we are nearing an uncomfortable level then add the poison but until then, find someone with high integrity and common sense to be in charge of our drinking water. To do less is criminal and evil. It’s time to clean house on those who are authorizing such audacity. Nadine Heiberg, Grand Forks

Learning from Walkerton BARRY BRANDOW SR.


The role of the Advisory Planning Committee


Bruce Davidson, an activist from Walkerton, Ont. who has made over 100 presentations, will tell his story at Grand Forks Secondary School’s auditorium March 14 at 7 p.m. Remember Walkerton? Over 2,300 seriously ill, seven deaths and over 40 left with serious health problems, all from cow manure in one of the town’s water wells. Rock Creek’s Al Grant will start the evening with a short presentation that will demonstrate why Bruce’s presentation is relevant to water management in the Boundary. This event in a large way, is driven by comments by a B.C. Cattlemen’s representative and a government employee at a Grand Forks City Council meeting in May of 2010. In response to concerns about the unlimited access by cows in the Granby River and rehabilitating the muck holes on the Gilpin grasslands, the range employee and representative stated that pathogens from cow manure were not a health issue. Their argument was that properly functioning riparian areas would quickly filter out pathogens. In other words, ranchers and range staff are the arbitrators of public health everywhere the cow is allowed to trespass on Crown land. How is it possible that in modern society, public health and the Ministry of Environment are not on the point, speaking strongly on behalf of the public interest on all issues connected to our water? Remember, rural B.C. is growing rapidly and responsible water management is more important than ever. In 2005, the executive director of the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association was hired to oversee the provincial range bureaucracy and no surprisingly, the Forest Practices Board issued a news release on Dec. 3, 2009 criticizing range management after examining over 200 range plans and many on-site inspections. This criticism was quickly followed by an email from well-known biologist Ray Demarchi and his colleagues criticizing range management in the East Kootenay. There are plenty of examples in the Boundary that reinforce the argument that responsible range management is a thing of the past. Responsible water management has to examine all human activity but the management of cows is a serious concern that looms large over the future management plan for the Kettle River and the ongoing proposed changes of the Provincial Water Act. A point reinforced by the fact that range plans are no longer available for public scrutiny and stakeholders have no input. Good government supports ranching but it should not continue deny the truth and public interest and will mandate the removal of the cow from sensitive, important environments: domestic watersheds, parks and quality recreation areas. Davidson’s presentation will make the case that proactive water management that puts the public interest first is a small price to pay when you consider the cost of mitigating a health management disaster like Walkerton.

❚ In the Spotlight IRENE PEREPOLKIN

We have been getting a number of questions and comments recently regarding the role of the Advisory Planning Committee (APC). There have been erroneous comments that this committee makes the final decision on applications be they rezoning,

subdividing or mining etc. The role of the APC in the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) is to be the eyes, ears and advisors to each of the directors of the electoral areas. They are appointed by the director and endorsed by the board of the RDKB for a one-year term. There are restrictions for sitting on the committee. APC members cannot be an employee of the RDKB, or a member of the RDKB Board of Directors. The members are volunteers and receive no remuneration. They are a very valuable component to the referral process to the Planning and Development Department as well. The APC meetings are open to the public but these meetings are not intended to be public hearing forums. Input from the public can be provided elsewhere in the application process. Applications and referrals with an introduction, background, implications, Official Community Plan (OCP) designation, zoning and any other pertinent information are sent from the Planning and Development Department to be reviewed as received at a monthly meeting. Comments and feedback are recorded and referred back in a report from the APC. This is the first step that starts the application process. It follows through with the Electoral Area Services comments and then onto the board of directors before it is sent back to the planning department, who refer it to the appropriate agencies Referrals on mining applications are one of the processes we deal with. Referrals on mining come from FrontCounter BC to the planning department, as well as to affected ministries and local and municipal government for comments. The APC reviews this application, along with information given by the planning department, and records its concerns, comments and recommendations and returns it to the planning department. The process from there is as any other application or referral received and the last step is to refer it back to FrontCounter BC. FrontCounter BC allows a 30-day period to receive all information from the various levels of government and agencies it sent the notices to. It is up to FrontCounter BC to decide if a public hearing in the communities closest to the proposed site is required. If it deems a public hearing necessary, it is then the responsibility of the applicant to set this up and bear the costs. The province had a review process to address public issues or concerns/comments regarding any of these applications and referrals – the Ministry of Mines is the contact for this. Information can be obtained at your local Service BC office. The APC is the first step in most applications and referrals.

Greenwood water “best in the world� CASSANDRA CHIN

CASTLEGAR A Sunshine Award is presented to:

Gazette Reporter

The City of Greenwood has been awarded Best Municipal Water in the World in this year’s Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting Competition. Based out of Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, a water sample was taken across the border to Colville, Wash. and mailed to the organization. “We sent our water sample out about a month and a half ago,� he added. “I was monitoring the internet because I knew they were testing it on Feb. 25. On Feb. 25, I looked on the Internet and found out that we won gold for best quality tap water in the world. We were pretty stoked.� The water sample was drawn from well number four, a 110-foot (33.53 metres) well tapped into a pretty good aquifer. The city currently has three untreated, active wells. “According to the rules, you have to draw it from a tap,� Kettle stated. “I know we have great quality water here but when you send in your sample with things like that, you never know what or who you’re up against.� Kettle pointed out that the result of the contest has drawn interest from various parties looking to invest. “It’s all very positive at this time,� he said. “We’re getting lots of offers but you know, at the end of the day we have to see what will actually work out but we’re hoping.� This is the third time Greenwood has entered the competition, with the city placing third for best municipal water in North America in 2010. “We’re pretty happy and it’s created a buzz and things moving and people thinking in our city,� Kettle said. “The spinoff we’re hoping will turn into something good for our city. The Berkeley Springs competition features more than 100 water samples from around the water, from wells to carbonated water. Water is judged based on clarity and taste. Other Canadian cities with winning water sources include a gold in the non-carbonated bottled water category for Jackson Springs Natural Premium Spring Water out of Winnipeg, Man. Source Saint-Elie and Saint Elie-de-Caxton in Quebec placed fourth in the carbonated bottled water and the people’s choice for package design categories. Greenwood will be presented with an official award early next month.

Grand Forks mandated by IH to chlorinate water

Jo Balazs, Chris Burt, Sharon Fausten, Carol Johnson, Sylvia Jmaiff, Sharon Kennessey, Kay McCaffrey, Louise Popoff, Jill Talarico, and Marjorie Wunder – thank you for volunteering at the Mammogram Screening Clinic

While Greenwood basks in the glory of having the “Best Municipal Tap Water in the World,� some in Grand Forks wonder why their water is chlorinated. Grand Forks has five wells that go through a chlorination system before it heads out to the rest of the city. “It’s not necessarily filtered or purified, because we don’t have a treatment plant,� explained Sasha Bird, manager of technical services and utilities for the City of Grand Forks. “We were mandated by Interior Health to chlorinate because we had E. coli in the water.� “Water is a staple and if it’s contaminated, people can get sick and die,� she added. “If Greenwood is able to not chlorinate, that’s great, but there are very few municipalities out there that don’t chlorinate. We’re a small community and treatment plants are expensive.� Bird said it’s the first time she’s heard of the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting Competition. “I heard through the grapevines that (Greenwood) had sent some samples to the States to get tested,� she said. “I’ll have to look into it but I’m sure we could (send in a sample).� The City of Grand Forks began chlorinating its water in 2007.

Truck hits car, no injuries On Feb. 28 at 2:13 p.m., a 33-year-old male from Castlegar was driving a Chambers truck and hit a 2004 Taurus that was turning left off the highway near Christina Lake. The truck was unable to stop in time and struck the left rear corner of the vehicle, causing over $1,000 in damages to the car. No one was injured, but the 20-year-old female driver of the car from Christina Lake was taken to the hospital because she is nine months pregnant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted to make sure everything was OK, and thankfully it was,â&#x20AC;? said Grand Forks RCMPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. Public disturbance On Saturday, March 3 at 8:14 p.m., there were two calls of a disturbance from residents. RCMP attended the scene and located a 20-year-old individual who has been living in Grand Forks but is from Trail.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They arrested him for being drunk in a public place and causing a disturbance,â&#x20AC;? explained Harrison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was subsequently charged with being drunk in a public place and we (placed him in a cell) for the evening to sleep it off and to stop him from bothering people.â&#x20AC;? Broken windows on trucks Two Chambers trucks were reported with broken windows on Feb. 27 at 6:46 a.m. Parked near the City Grand Forks Works Yard, both driver side windows were broken. Nothing was taken and there were no witnesses. Alberta car struck outside restaurant On March 2 at 2:09 p.m., an accident originally reported as a hit-and-run occurred near New Century Restaurant. A white, 1988 Ford pickup truck backed out into a 2007 Toyota Rav 4 from Alberta and left damage worth over $1,000. The driver of the truck was located and he subsequently reported he had left the scene and was going to report the accident to police. There were no injuries.

Responsible budgeting in an uncertain world. To prosper in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turbulent global economy, discipline and focus are essential. All around us we see governments paying the price for overspending and uncontrolled debt. In BC, we have a different story.










Net Debt-to-GDP ratio is a key measure of debt affordability.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working to keep BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy strong in the face of global economic uncertainty. When other economies are looking inward, BC is reaching out to seize opportunities around the world. British Columbia. Canada Starts Here.

The teacher’s strike began Monday across B.C. but while teachers in Grand Forks and area are off the job, School District 51 (SD51) says the community can still use its facilities. “School District Number 51 (Boundary) school facilities will continue to be available for scheduled community use despite the teacher strike,” explained SD51 Superintendent Michael Strukoff in a release. “Our support staff will be at the schools as usual so afterschool events, Strong Start, the Glanville Centre will all be operating as normal.” Boundary District Teachers’ Association (BDTA)

President Norm Sabourin told The Gazette last week that a ruling from the Labour Relations Board will not allow striking teachers to block entrances to schools. Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC) will not have any additional programs for parents looking to keep their children busy but the arena will be open today (March 7) between 2 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. Lilly Bryant, program co-ordinator at GFREC stated, “We’re not doing any pool activities and we can’t extend the hours due to budgetary reasons but we are able to open up the arena.” Teachers will be back in the classroom tomorrow, Thursday, March 8.

â?&#x161; HOUSING

Locals consider cohousing concept KARL YU Gazette Editor

Stuart McKinnon and Wolf Willow were in Grand Forks at Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Saturday evening to discuss the concept of cohousing and it could be something that is applied locally. The couple came from Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Middle road Cohousing Community and said that cohousing is a form of intentional community and has six characteristics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, it has a participatory process,â&#x20AC;? explained McKinnon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one is making all the decisions and telling you how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be. As a part of being in the community, it means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be participating.â&#x20AC;? Cohousing also includes a neighbourhood design, privately-owned homes that are supplemented by common areas, resident management and as mentioned, decisions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made hierarchically and could be done by consensus. McKinnon also said that there are communal communities that generate an economy together but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall into the realm of cohousing. Rod Gustafson thought that his Broadacres Care Facility could be used for cohousing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he said his complex is fully-operational and is in a ideal location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The location is close to town, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to 10 acres (four hectares) there and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite the outbuildings on the property already,â&#x20AC;? said Gustafson, adding there was also a fire suppression system.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the main residence, which could be opened up for assisted living and could be part of the community as well.â&#x20AC;? Gustafson said Broadacres also had a gym, a workshop and a number of barns, which could be utilized. Habitat for Humanity Boundaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Executive Director and Building Co-ordinator Rick Friesen was also on hand and saw potential for cohousing as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would see the potential of incorporating the low income housing ownership model that we provide together with the cohousing project as long as the rest of the residents or participants of the cohousing program were agreeable to having low-income families living in their midst,â&#x20AC;? Friesen said. Friesen also noted that for the majority of lowincome seniors in the area, home ownership isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a practical reality and low income subsidized rental probably is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They still need community and if we can incorporate that into a community model, I can see a lot of benefit to that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ed MacLeod, project manager of the Ponderosa EcoVillage proposal at Christina Lake, said if approved by regulators, Ponderosa will use cohousing once it becomes established. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have 37 lots for sale, if everything goes according to (plan), eight of those acres will be dedicated to cohousing and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be hopefully creating the community waste disposal facility, similar to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Christina Lake now at the arts centre,â&#x20AC;? MacLeod said and went on to say there would be consensus-style decision making.

The Bra Lady Is Coming to Size You Up

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably seen on Oprah or read in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in.

GRAND FORKS ON TUESDAY MARCH 13 to outďŹ t you with

Chapman is coming to

the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the beneďŹ ts of good bras and measuring their bodies properly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most women just want to ďŹ nd a good-ďŹ tting bra thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncomfortable,â&#x20AC;? Chapman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.â&#x20AC;?

Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ t somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: â&#x20AC;˘ Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that ďŹ t comfortably? â&#x20AC;˘ Does your bust line â&#x20AC;&#x153;bounceâ&#x20AC;? when you walk while wearing your â&#x20AC;&#x153;everydayâ&#x20AC;? bra? â&#x20AC;˘ Do you overďŹ&#x201A;ow the cup of your bra? â&#x20AC;˘ Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders leaving red and painful marks? â&#x20AC;˘ Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to give you added support? â&#x20AC;˘ Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.


You can sign up for Chapmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bra clinic by calling

1-800-254-3938 BY MARCH 11TH

She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come into town very often so she advises booking as soon as possible.

March is Nutrition Month and Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC) would like to help you get started eating healthier and learn the difference about what is good and what is not when it comes to the food we eat. Canada’s Food Guide is built on healthy eating practices, which will help meet your needs for vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Making healthy food choices helps reduce your risk of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer and osteoporosis. Nutrition information has never been more accessible than right now. Millions of Canadians have ready and easy access to the Internet and other forms of social media. You must consider where the information is coming from and make sure you are researching credible sites. Small changes can make huge difference to the way you feel and look in a short time. *** GFREC offers many different fitness classes weekly at the pool. Spring is fast approaching and we are now taking registration for our spring fitness circuit classes. Check out the new spring class that will be held from 12 to 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. This session will run from April 3 to May 31.

Phoenix Mountain Racers shine at Nancy Greene zone race NANCY GABRIELSE Submitted

The Phoenix Mountain Racers shone at the Nancy Greene Zone Race hosted by Phoenix Ski Hill on Feb. 26. Snow, sunshine and smiles were plentiful as racers from Red Mountain, Whitewater, Summit Lake and Salmo competed with Phoenix on a dual slalom course. Seamus Carlyle placed fourth and Sean Phelps was fifth in races in the E2 division while Ella Churchill came in an impressive first overall in the E1 category. “Our whole club is performing incredibly well and the race results are proof these kids are capable, strong and fast,” said Coach Astrid Kihl. “The Phoenix Mountain racers – from an entirely community supported ski hill, with an allvolunteer coaching staff – are competing quite favourably against some very strong Kootenay teams like Red Mountain and Whitewater.”

“Spring is on it’s way... Are you ready?” “We’ll keep your motor purring”

The 10-week ski program introduces kids to proper ski-race technique and hones their overall skiing skills. “My daughter has made remarkable progress since she started with the club in January,” commented Rob Chornenki. “She came in pretty much as a complete beginner and is now doing beautiful parallel turns. All the kids are thriving. It’s a lot of fun and very affordable – about half what some of the other hills are charging.” After the zone race, prizes were awarded to winners of the raffle draw. Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all those who bought tickets. Thanks go out as well to all the volunteers who made the race such a great success. Lots of positive feedback was given from visiting teams, as Phoenix provided a festive, friendly atmosphere with good food, music and a wide variety of ski runs enjoyed after the race.

The Pughe rink from Royal City and the Skinner rink from Summerland will be representing British Columbia at the National Curling Championships in Montreal. Hosted in Grand Forks, this year’s B.C. Masters Curling Championships went from March 1 to 4 at the Grand Forks Curling Club. Mel Lungle, Region 1 director (Grand Forks, Trail, Naskup and Nelson) for Curl BC, stated, “It’s been very successful. We have some very, very good curlers here and some curlers who are here have an excellent resumé of what they’ve done in the past and there’s some superb curling.” Lungle pointed out the curlers are so good that anybody can win at any time. “I’m very happy that the community has been supporting us and there have been a number of sponsors who have come forward to assist us and it’s very important that we do work as a community,” he added. The finals in the men’s division had two teams from Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster facing off against each other. The Pughe rink played against the Lightbody rink in a tight match throughout the eight ends. It was in the last end that the Pughe rink managed to pull away with two points to win the Championship 6-4. Skip Rick Pughe will be heading to Montreal with third John Zwarych, second Jack Finnbogasson and lead Bob Byrne. “(The tournament) was very good,” Pughe said. “The ice was very good and the hospitality was great.” He stated the competition was pretty tough,

as usual, but hopes to continue play the same way at the nationals. “This is a great place to come and curl,” he added. The women’s division also saw a tight match with the Kelowna Curling Club against the Summerland Curling Club. The beginning of the match had the two teams in close contention before the Skinner rink pulled away in the last two ends. Though the Bird rink was close, led by Skip Maureen Bird, the Skinner rink won 6-4. Representing the women’s Masters team for British Columbia, Skip Beverly Skinner will be joined with third Wendy Archer, second Betty Raymond and lead Rosemarie Fenrich in Montreal. “This year’s competition was absolutely wonderful,” Skinner stated. “It was a great field of girls and there was competition from the coast, and the interior, as well as the island.” Everyone curled their hearts out and the camaraderie here was unbelievable.” This is the first time Skinner has made it to the provincials and she is excited to continue and play in the nationals. “I’d like to thank the Grand Forks area because we were here three weeks ago for the bonspiel and everybody’s kind of taken us under their wing,” she stated. “We felt like the hometown team and it’s been unbelievable support from Grand Forks. “People on the streets were waving and saying ‘way to go!’ or ‘go for the gold.’ It was awesome.” Teams participating in the BC Provincials Masters Curling came from around the province, including Comox, Kamloops, Nanaimo, Quesnel and Duncan.

Notice of Passing


BCPA delivers $3 million gift to health authorities BC CARE PROVIDERS ASSOCIATION Submitted

Valmore Joseph Roberge December 1927 – March 2012 Our precious husband, father and grandfather began his journey onward from this human experience, peacefully with all his loved ones around him. He was born at Nelson, B.C., to Ugene and Georgina Roberge, with a French, Irish and Iroquois background. He was the youngest of 10 siblings, born on his eldest sisters’ birthday. He lived and worked all over Canada in the very best years – from the army in his younger years to mining and railroads to ranching and rodeo cowboy, just to name a few. From the Rockies to the prairies, and everywhere in between. As a youngster his first love was hockey. He trained at 16 in the NHL with many of the late greats. He played many instruments to accompany and had a dynamite singing voice. He loved camping and his biking, hiking and swimming. He was united in marriage to Elsie Popoff in 1958 and was blessed with three children. They eventually made Grand Forks home to raise their family. He was predeceased by his entire original birth family, as well as his son, Kevin in 1998. He is survived by his wife, Elsie; daughter, Eve; son, Tom and his wife, Diane; and grandchildren: Nolan, Josef, Darryl, Mandy and Cody; many, many nieces and nephews and treasured friends of Grand Forks. He was all about the sunrise and firelight as each day he rose and retired with them. He was the Iroquois; his father’s name for him was “Barefoot”. Tiny but tough with a heart of gold n’ sunshine – this was our father. “Oh sweet mother, embrace and comfort him as he arrives For of this earth he was a gem so rare!” We as a family have been so blessed to be a part of this man. My father requested that we skip a memorial, and celebrate his life later this year. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society may be made. Cremation has taken place. Grand Forks Funeral Home had care of arrangements.

Publically-funded residential seniors’ care and assisted living employers in British Columbia provided a $3-million leap year gift to the province’s health authorities on Feb. 29. B.C. does not adjust public health care contracts with non-profit, denominational and private employers to reflect the operating and staffing costs associated with providing 24-hour care an extra day on leap year. As a result, care providers had to fund the full cost of the Feb. 29 service day. “(On Feb. 29), employers (absorbed) an additional $3 million in costs to provide publically-funded care for our most vulnerable B.C. seniors,” said BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) CEO Ed Helfrich. “While most provinces account for cost increases associated with providing care for an extra day on leap years, B.C. care providers are expected to provide the service without funding.” Instead of calling on the ministry to fund the leap-year shortfall, BCCPA is calling on the government to respond to the B.C. Ombudsperson’s recommendations to improve the province’s seniors care system – particularly as they relate to the historic funding inequities that have remained in the system. Among other things, the Ombudsperson’s investigation confirms realities care providers have been raising for years. Hundreds of seniors are waiting too long in B.C. hospitals for placement into residential care beds and it is having a negative impact on their health. Sufficient funding has not been provided to achieve provincial staffing levels at most residential care facilities in B.C. Health authorities’ services cost more than the same complex residential care services delivered by contracted non-profit, denominational and privately-owned providers. Historic funding anomalies need to be addressed and a consistent model should be established that considers the needs of seniors, actual costs, taxes and capital expenses. New user fees the province has collected from seniors over the past two years have not been Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the outpouring of love and fully returned to facilities for enhanced staffing support during Mom’s illness and her final days in the hospital.

The purpose of Pest Management Plan (PMP) No. 131-0024-12/16 is to reduce overall mosquito annoyance in select areas of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary by using an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach to control. The PMP emphasizes larval mosquito control initiatives and employs public education, physical site modification and biological controls to reduce larval mosquito populations and conserve or enhance natural mosquito predators wherever possible. Adult mosquitos may be controlled to limit their annoyance. This Pest Management Plan is a renewal of the recently expired 5 year PMP for this program and is proposed duration is from 01 May 2012 to 15 September 2016.

Mosquito larvae require stagnant or non-flowing waters, temporary or permanent, to develop. When physical alterations (drainage, filling) are neither practical nor desirable, developing larvae will be treated using VectoBac or VectoLex larvicides. VectoBac 200G (PCP # 18158) contains the natural-occurring soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis and VectoLex CG (PCP # 28008) is made with the related bacterium Bacillus sphaericus. Both of these products are classified as bio-rational products, they do not accumulate in the environment and provide species-specific control of mosquito larvae. They are non-toxic to other organisms including fish, birds, wildlife, man and domestic animals. Applications of VectoBac 200G and VectoLex CG will be made using aerial (helicopter) and ground-based, hand-broadcast methods. Adult mosquitos may be controlled (adulticided) with Gardex Micro-spray containing pyrethrins (PCP # 11855) or similar products including Industrial D-Trans Micro Spray (allethrin, PCP # 15494) and Permanone (permethrins, PCP # 26476). Adulticide applications would be made using either back pack or truck-equipped Ultra Low Volume aerosol misters. All applications will be conducted within, and adjacent to, the communities of Grand Forks and Christina Lake. Treatment areas could include forest and thick brush (mosquito harbourage) areas adjacent to residential, commercial, golf courses and industrial areas. No treatment of residential streets is planned. This Pest Management Plan for mosquito control is being prepared for the RDKB by D.G. Regan and Associations Ltd., an environmental services firm, with extensive experience in pest management plan development and local mosquito control operations. Information on proposed treatment areas, annual mosquito control program operations and this PMP are available to the public by request from D.G Regan and Associates Ltd., #413 - 500 Klahanie Drive, Port Moody, B.C., V3H 5L1, (604) 931-4565, Facsimile (604) 931-4563, or email; For VectoBac or VectoLex product information please see the manufacturers website Adult mosquito control product information is available through the distributor at A person wishing to contribute information regarding a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of this Pest Management Plan, may send copies of the information to D.G. Regan and Associates Ltd. (agents for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary) at the contact addresses above within 30 days of the publication of this notice.
