That was the headline above a story in The Inland Sentinel newspaper more than 125 years ago, days before Albert Mallott became the first man to be hanged in the city’s history. Now it’s 2012 — exactly 200 years since the founding of Fort Kamloops, 50 years since the death penalty was last used in Canada and three decades since workers building the Kamloops Law Courts on Columbia Street uncovered the skeletons of three hanged murderers in unmarked graves. Kamloops was, for a time, the busiest gallows in Canada. Over a 29-year span, 19 condemned men were hanged here. In a five-part series beginning today, Kamloops This Week will examine the history of capital punishment in the present-day Tournament Capital — everything from the aforementioned grave discovery on the old site of the Kamloops Provincial Gaol, to the colourfully dark hangmen who plied their trade on local gallows, to a River Street murder described at the time as the ‘most cold-blooded’ in B.C.’s history. We’ve also dug through local, provincial and federal archival material and countless old newspapers to provide brief summaries of each of the 19 capital case files which saw death sentences carried out in Kamloops — from crime to gallows.

NEW KAMLOOPS CAO

Trawin gets nod to lead city By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It was standingroom only inside the City of Kamloops’ council chambers on Wednesday, March 14, as the city’s new chief administrative officer was unveiled. Dave Trawin, currently the city’s director of development and engineering services, was announced as the new CAO. “I didn’t sleep much last night,” Trawin said while being questioned by reporters following the announcement. The 49-year-old was one of three in-house applicants who made the short list for the CAO job, which will be vacated by a retiring

Randy Diehl on May 1. It was originally believed an announcement wouldn’t come until Friday, but a notice sent out by the City of Kamloops yesterday morning calling an 11 a.m. press conference made it clear a decision had been made. Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar said it was tough wading through the 49 applications that flowed in after Diehl announced his retirement earlier this year. “They were all highly qualified individuals from across Canada,” Milobar said. “It was, frankly, an embarrassment of riches and strengths that we had to deal with.” XSee MAYOR A20

SD73 investigates Pinantan teachers By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Teachers at Pinantan elementary are being investigated by School District 73. SD 73 superintendent Terry Sullivan confirmed the investigation after “serious allegations” against the teachers were received “relating to inappropriate teacher conduct related to the job action.” Sullivan said the investigation continued this week. Jason Karpuk, president of the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers’ Association, said he received a letter from the school district on Friday, March 9, advising him students were being interviewed by administrators that day after reports of an incident at the school. Karpuk said he is unaware of the details and is waiting for a

report from the school district. The school’s principal, Don Poelzer, said he cannot discuss an active investigation. However, KTW has been told the allegations involve teachers who misunderstood the intent of legislation now being debated by the provincial government to bring to a temporary end job action by teachers and require a mediator try to resolve the contract stalemate. The allegation is that teachers divided the 48 Pinantan students in half, taking each half into a classroom and telling the students that would be how their classes would exist in the future, and that some of the teachers would be relocated because classes would be so large. Karpuk said the teachers have been advised to not talk about the situation while the investigation is ongoing.

“What they were trying to do was demonstrate to the students the reality they would be experiencing,” Karpuk said. Shortly after the incident occurred, a letter and petition were sent to Education Minister George Abbott and copied to KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod and the local school board, signed by “parents of the community of Pinantan and Paul Lake.” The document, with 50 signatures attached, expresses concern the school will be reduced from three classes to two, with kindergarten to Grade 3 in one and grades 4 to 7 in the other. Louise Harwood, one of two parents to draft and sign the letter, said she created the petition because of fears larger class sizes will result from teachers’ negotiations with the province — and

affect her area’s tiny school and its teachers. “All we are hearing is class sizes will be getting bigger and we were worried for our teachers,” Harwood said. Harwood said she was inspired by an online petition at thepetitionsite.com/1/kill-bill-22, but wasn’t confident she could get enough Pinantan and Paul Lake people to go online and sign it because of the lack of Internet in the area. However, in a statement, Abbott said Bill 22, the legislation now being debated to deal with the job action by teachers and the negotiation impasse, “does not change existing class-size limits and, therefore, will not affect the size of the number of classrooms at Pinantan elementary. “Decisions regarding the size, number and organization of classes in a school are made by principals

and school districts in consultation with teachers.” Sullivan said he has responded to the letter writers by explaining students at Pinantan are in three class groupings: 14 are in a kindergarten to grade 2 class, another 14 are in the grades 2 to 4 class and 20 are in a grades 5 to 7 class. There are three full-time teachers, a 4.5-hour-per day custodian, a 5.7-hour-per-day school-support worker, a four-hour-per-day rural school-support worker and a fulltime secretary. “So, I feel the staffing there is very generous,” Sullivan said. There are legislated caps on class sizes — 22 for kindergarten and 24 for grades 1 to 3. With mixed grades, the lower number is mandatory. “So, there’s no way we could do what they were worried about, even if we wanted to,” Sullivan said.

Topping Trees is a ‘Growing Problem’ STOP TOPPING TREES

RESULTS OF TOPPING

The tree retaliates by producing an unruly crop of weakly-attached watersprouts, prone to disease and breakage. Disease enters via the stub ends, making the tree a short-lived and potentially dangerous one. The tree ends up looking even bulkier than before; it soon needs re-pruning.

1. Remove dead, damaged, or diseased branches. 2. Remove suckers and watersprouts. 3. Remove badly placed branches: t$SPTTJOHPSSVCCJOHFBDI other t(SPXJOHJOUPDFOUSFPGUSFF t(SPXJOHJOUPXBMLXBZT SPBEXBZT  or buildings 4. If desired, trim slender branch tips a few inches, to a bud or a parent branch.

Stub ends are a sign of poor pruning. This kind of pruning destroys the health & beauty of the tree.

Prune It Right! Four easy steps:

Prune It Right! Here’s how: Make mostly thinning cuts (removal of branches right back to the parent branch or trunk). Avoid creating stub ends. Make your cuts just outside the branch collar (a slight thickening where the branch joins its parent branch or trunk). Flush cuts destroy the tree’s defense zone. Remember: remove no more than 20% of the green.

Now stand back and admire the great pruning job. Your tree will look airy and graceful, and your pruning job will stay done much longer than stub-end pruning. Trees add beauty and value to your home. Protect your investment with proper pruning. Attend our workshop: #184696 Pruning Fruit Trees, Ornamentals, and Shrubs on March 28, 2012. To register call 250-828-3500.

Runner warns of bottle tampering at TCC STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Pam Bragg will be back on the track at the Tournament Capital Centre (TCC) — but her water bottle will be with her. A regular patron at the city facility, Bragg has always left her water bottle on the bleachers, as do others using the track. That’s where it was on Tuesday, March 13, along with an estimated dozen or so other bottles. Bragg finished her workout, went over and sat down. “I took a big swig and felt a lump, but it was too late to spit out the water,” she said. Bragg opened the bottle and discovered someone had placed inside a blood-covered tissue. “I was grossed out,” Bragg said, “and I’ve still got a lump in my chest.”

She took the bottle to the washroom, threw out the tissue and rinsed out the container — but still put it through the dishwasher again when she got home. “You don’t like having the big hep-C word go through your head,” Bragg said, “but I’m going to the doctor to get checked out just to be sure.” Bragg’s doctor sent her for a blood test. Depending on the results, she could face additional blood tests in one and three months. The incident had brought back some bad memories for Bragg. Her late husband contracted hepatitis C through a blood transfusion and was involved in a classaction against the federal government that led to one of the largest settlements in Canadian legal history. The doctor told Bragg she could have been exposed to any

bacteria or virus, depending on the health of the person whose blood was on the tissue. Clint Anderson, recreation supervisor for fitness operations at the TCC, said he is investigating the incident. He has asked staff to determine if there was a first-aid incident recorded that night that might provide some information and has referred the matter to the police “to make sure incidents like this aren’t occurring elsewhere.” Anderson said people need to realize that, when they’re in a public space, “something as simple as a water bottle can be tampered with. People need to keep their belongings with them or locked up.” As for Bragg, she said the discovery won’t stop her from her regular workouts at the track and she

doesn’t blame the facility for what happened. “This is nothing against the TCC,” Bragg said, “but more

about raising awareness, I guess, about leaving your water bottles on the bleachers. “Don’t do it.”

so he felt another 960 estimate was valid for 2012. “There’s been a levelling off at the kindergarten level the last yew years.” The immediate impact is in projected budgeting because classes and teacherhirings will be based on the enrolment figure. The dollar value

Registration for kindergarten in September continues — and Karl deBruijn hopes plenty of people take advantage of it. The assistant superintendent for School District 73 said the week of formal registration saw fewer students registered than he had expected. “I had expected 960, but we were 138 down from what we had anticipated,” deBruijn said. He can’t say for certain, but suspects the lower numbers are a result of the three-day teachers’ strike during the five days of registration at schools. “They weren’t picket lines, but they looked like it,” deBruijn said of teachers demonstrating outside schools during the three-day

of 138 fewer students is $900,000, deBruijn said — although, when the final numbers are determined after the 2012-2013 school year begins, the province will address any discrepancies in funding. In terms of teachers, the shortfall represents about 10 teachers. “It’s worrisome because the number is so big,” deBruijn said, noting the shortfall is scattered throughout the city. Although notices go out to day-care centres and to all families with children in the school system, as well as through media advertisements, deBruijn said there are always families they miss and don’t hear from until school

begins in September. Anyone can still register a child for kindergarten by going to their neighbourhood school.

A birth certificate, the child’s care card and proof of residence are required although, if one of the two gov-

ernment documents is unavailable, school secretaries will help families get them so registration can proceed.

THE HANGED

PART one OF A FIVE-PART SERIES Of the 19 murderers executed in Kamloops, all but two of the hangings can be attributed to one of two men — Radcliffe and Ellis. As Canada’s “national hangmen,” they lived lives as colourful away from the gallows as they were dark when the hoods were down.

HE IRONY OF THE SITUATION is not lost on Steve Lawhead. Sitting in his office on the fourth floor of the Kamloops Law Courts, the Crown prosecutor can easily recall a sunny day in the fall of 1982 when he was summoned to the same address at Fourth Avenue and Columbia Street. It started when his phone rang. At the other end of the line was a police officer. But, Lawhead was not yet a lawyer and the call was not about a criminal file. In the early 1980s, Lawhead was working as an archaeologist. The phone call was in regard to a grim discovery made at the construction site of the Kamloops courthouse — the building now housing his office. “I would occasionally get phone calls from the RCMP where skeletal material had been found,” he told KTW. “They’d want someone to come have a look.” So, on Sept. 27, 1982, Lawhead did just that. Three skeletons had been unearthed by crews moving dirt at the site of the future courthouse. “They’d been interred in some form of historical burial,” Lawhead said. “It was, as far as I knew, not a burial ground or a cemetery.” But, Lawhead said, it quickly became

clear there was nothing suspicious, either. “It wasn’t forensic,” he said. “Police didn’t have to worry about if it was a murder of some kind.” That was made clear by the coffins —

Where are the skeletons now? You might be surprised. PAGE A11 “murderers don’t usually bury their victims in coffins,” Lawhead said — and the fact the bodies had apparently been covered in lime. XSee REMAINS A11

The old Kamloops Provincial Gaol site isn’t the only unofficial graveyard of hanged men to be discovered on the grounds of an old Canadian prison. In 2007, an excavation at Toronto’s Old Don Jail unearthed the remains of 15 murderers, all of whom had been hanged between 1871 and 1932. Thirty-four people were executed at the jail between its opening in 1864 and 1962, when Canada hanged its last murderers. The discovery was featured in a 2009 documentary film, Hangman’s Graveyard.

ALBERT MALLOTT: Dubious distinction for young Revelstoke barkeep Albert Mallott was a 23-year-old bartender at a saloon just east of Revelstoke. On Aug. 9, 1885, Andrew Johnson was among a group of people playing cards in the saloon when a fight broke out over the game. Mallott took the cards, ending the quarrel and the game. Johnson, in response, reached over the bar and helped himself to a handful of ci-

gars before setting off for his camp. Mallott went after him, armed with a rifle, and fired a fatal shot. After being convicted at trial in Kamloops, Mallott was sentenced to hang. His was the first execution in the community. Following the Nov. 1, 1886, hanging, The Inland Sentinel said the event attracted many curious onlookers, despite the fact the scaffold

was partially boarded up. “However, this did not deter large numbers from congregating on the hill overlooking the jail yard, and other available points, to catch a glimpse of the prisoner on his way to the scaffold,” the paper stated. “This being the first execution that has ever taken place in Kamloops, this morbid curiosity is perhaps excusable.”

Fight over booze turns deadly

Posse coaxes Casimir out of hiding

Frank Spencer, 34 at the time of his death, was an American cowboy. He was originally from Tennessee and arrived in Kamloops by train in 1886. The next year, he was working on Louis Campbell’s ranch just east of Kamloops. On May 20, 1887, another ranch worker, Peter Foster, gave Spencer $5 to buy whiskey. Spencer returned, drunk, and offered Foster only a small amount of whiskey. The men began fighting, initially throwing horseshoes at one another. In anger, Spencer ran into the ranch house, grabbed a rifle and began chasing Foster on foot and shot him. Foster was taken to hospital but died the following day. Spencer initially fled the country and wasn’t apprehended until 1889, when an alert Mountie spotted him at a saloon in New Westminster. Spencer was convicted following a one-day trial in Kamloops and eventually hanged on July 21, 1890.

Casimir — identified in government documents as “Casimir, an Indian” — lived on the reserve at Kamloops and took a canoe across the Thompson River to town on the evening of April 15, 1899. He shot Philip Walker twice with a rifle, then canoed back to the reserve. Casimir was arrested on April 17, following a two-day manhunt. News reports from the time describe the entire city shutting down to watch the standoff between Casimir and the posse out to get him. Just as police were about to open fire on him after he was located hiding in Chief Louis’ house, Casimir surrendered. His trial took place the following week. The murder was described in media reports as “the most cold-blooded ever perpetrated in this province” and made headlines across North America. Casimir’s execution went off as planned on June 2, 1899 — just 48 days after Walker’s murder.

It’s all about the students — during school hours, of course

I

T’S ALL ABOUT THE students — as long as those students maintain their needs and interests between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Not only will the latest job-action stunt by the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers’ Association (KTTA) hurt students — and only students — it wipes out any advantage teachers may have gained from the provincial government’s ridiculous offer to pay teachers for having more students in their classrooms. The KTTA has decided its teachers in Kamloops and the region will no longer coach sports teams after hours. They will no longer gather before or after school to have kids practise their instruments or go through drama rehearsal. They will not supervise in the schoolyard during lunch hour and they will not meet after-hours with students to plan once-in-a-lifetime graduation ceremonies. Oh, and it’s all about the students, of course. KTTA president Jason Karpuk told KTW he is aware this latest job action will have an impact on students. However, he added, “the kids will suffer under Bill 22,” the soon-to-be law that will impose a cooling-off period, mandate the appointment of a mediator and extend the particulars of the previous contract between the teachers’ union and Victoria. The problem with this withdrawal of services by Kamloops teachers is that the kids will also suffer — and Bill 22 will still become law. So, what is the point of a teachers’ union punishing students because that teachers’ union is upset with government? There is no logic to the action.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS For argument’s sake, let’s agree with Karpuk that “kids will suffer under Bill 22,” due to diluted class-size restrictions and no improvement in composition numbers. Let’s agree on those points alone because those two issues are the real issues, the true concerns that merit discussion, the issues that give teachers a serious argument in their battle. It’s not about performance reviews, the right to transfer teachers or improving an already envious benefits package. And, it is certainly isn’t about wages. Even under the B.C. Liberals’ netzero mandate, teachers in B.C. will continue to receive generous salary increases for the first 10 years of their careers. A teacher in the KamloopsThompson school district, fresh out of university with a four-year degree and a year of teacher education, will earn a salary this year of $52,840. That wage will jump next year to $55,259, and to $57,677 the year after, to $60,095 the year after, to $62,514 the year after, to $64,932 the year after, to $67,351 the year after, to $69,769 the year after and to $74,353 in the final year of the wage grid. From $52,840 to $74,353 in a

decade — and that is without any salary increases in the provincial contract. Not exactly fodder for a pauper’s protest. And, those salaries rise with increased education. There is also the matter of the last contract, the 2006-2011 deal that gave teachers a 16 per cent hike in those grid numbers and handed each and every teacher a $3,700 signing bonus. So, let’s dispense with any argument about salaries. Teachers in B.C. are very well compensated and enjoy guaranteed annual raises many in the private sector can only dream about. The issues are class sizes and composition. Those are the real issues and they are serious concerns. However, as long as the teachers’ union continues to stick to outrageous wage demands, and as long as the union locals maintain job action that achieves nothing but to make kids suffer, the real issues are not going to be exposed to the public, much of which is understandably weary of the battle, which, with the teachers’ union, rages on in perpetuity, decade after decade, regardless of which political philosophy is running the province. Terry Sullivan, head of the Kamloops-Thompson school district, told KTW community and parental support will be needed to make extracurricular activities a reality. Here’s hoping a flood of volunteers appears to ensure track and field events, flag football programs and grad ceremonies continue to enhance the lives of our children. After all, it’s all about the students, right? editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

The ongoing confusion over the botched deal with Telus over naming rights of the refurbished B.C. Place Stadium seems to indicate a provincial government that is having trouble reading its cue cards. In some ways, this isn’t surprising. One year ago, the B.C. Liberals elected former MLA and talk-show host Christy Clark as their leader. While she had served in cabinet up until 2005, she was definitely out of touch with how the province was being governed — particularly in the backrooms of cabinet and caucus meetings, where decisions are made. She was brought in as a fresh face after severe public dissatisfaction with the governing B.C. Liberals, something that came to a crescendo over the HST. Clark at first seemed to stem the tide of dissatisfaction, but the honeymoon didn’t last long. The HST referendum was hanging over the head of the government and, when the controversial tax was defeated, her government lost much of what credibility it had retained. Since that time, it has seemed to lurch from issue to issue, often in a bumbling fashion. The Telus fiasco is a prime case in point. There was no hint that the stadium renaming wasn’t proceeding, until Telus pointedly did not invite the premier (who has a “jobs agenda”) to a press announcement, where it outlined $3 billion of investments in B.C. Notably, NDP leader Adrian Dix was invited. Then, the rumours started flying, until the government finally confirmed it had shelved a deal in which Telus would have paid $35 million over 20 years for naming rights. There were some conflicts over the fact a prominent B.C. Place user, the Vancouver Whitecaps, is sponsored by a rival phone company, but that didn’t seem insurmountable. Then a whole variety of different stories started flying and it’s hard to separate fact from innuendo and rumour. It is sufficient to note the government has snubbed B.C.’s largest private-sector employer, caused confusion in professional sports ranks and demonstrated that it can’t make basic decisions in a straightforward manner. None of this inspires confidence.

Q&A

Where is net-zero in government salaries? Editor: Now that your intrepid Liberal shill, Tom Fletcher, has crapped all over the teachers with his usual ideological drivel, it is the time to look at the other side of the zero increases brought to us by Premier Christy Clark and the rest of the contemptable thugs running B.C. Helping manage the government’s war on school teachers and public education is Deputy Minister of Education James Gorman. He is a longtime bureaucrat. Public accounts show his salary in fiscal 2006 was $164,085. In fiscal 2011, it was $228,942, an increase of 40 per cent. During that period, Gorman’s expenses were $136,616. Gorman looks positively frugal compared to his colleague, Rick Davis. The education ministry’s superintendent of achievement incurred expenses of $432,234 from 2006 to 2011. Spending more than $6,000 a month on lunches and such can’t leave much time for business — but Davis is consistent, if nothing else. John Dyble, the premier’s deputy minister, has also done well in the land of not net zero. Public accounts show Dyble’s salary rose from $161,455 in fiscal 2006 to $239,121 in 2011. That was a 48 per cent gain in five

years — but the good news for Dyble is his salary was bumped again in March 2011. His new rate is $310,000, about double what he earned five years ago. Keith Miller, assistant deputy minister for the education ministry’s resourcemanagement division, earned $106,172 in fiscal 2009 and $172,381 in 2011, an increase of 62 per cent. Renate Butterfield, assistant deputy minister for the business, technology and online-services division, saw her salary grow 42 per cent from 2006 to 2011. David Loukidelis, a senior Liberal bureaucrat, got 11 per cent more this year, a raise that makes his salary 42 per cent greater than it was in 2006. Valerie St. John, assistant deputy minister for technology solutions, had to make do with a nine per cent raise in 2011. Sarf Ahmed, assistant deputy minister, integrated workplace solutions, took raises in 2010 and 2011 totalling 14 per cent. Brad Grundy, assistant deputy minister for corporate services, did a little better — his 2011 raise was 29 per cent. Dana Hayden, deputy minister of jobs, tourism and innovation, scored eight per cent this year, a raise of almost $20,000. Kim Henderson, deputy minister, Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government, got a raise of 6.5 per

cent in 2011, about $1,200 a month. Stephen Brown, deputy minister, children and family development, had a $2,000 a month raise in 2011, 13 per cent in the government’s world of not net zero. Don Fast, deputy minister in the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, has gained 18 per cent over the last three years. Kim Henderson, deputy minister of labour, got a $1,200 a month bump in 2011. Her 2011 salary of $235,000 is 55 per cent more than the Liberal government paid her in 2009. Pierrette Maranda, associate deputy minister, Intergovernmental Relations Secretariat, earns 23 per cent more now than she earned in fiscal 2011. Peter Milburn, deputy minister in the Ministry of Finance, has had a particularly pleasant ride. This year, his salary rose seven per cent, to $250,000, double what he was paid in 2006. Milburn also does better than most when it comes to expense accounts. Over a number of years, he averaged $3,000 a month. While that is not in Rick Davis territory, it is still an amount that shows remarkable disdain for taxpayers. Ken Barry Kamloops

B.C.’s finance minister was in the Tournament Capital this week, singing the praises of his recently announced provincial budget to a room full of local business people. “We’ve always believed that being fiscally prudent and responsibly managing is important for British Columbia,” Kevin Falcon said during a speech on Tuesday, March 13, at the North Kamloops Holiday Inn and Suites. “The landscape is littered around the world with governments that have forgot that discipline, or maybe never had it. “We’ve kept spending very limited. “It’s not always easy. It means sometimes you have to say no. During difficult times, that is not the time you want to borrow and go deeper in debt.” Falcon’s 2012 B.C. budget has been called the most conservative in Canada, capping spending at two per cent over the next two years. “We are very wellpositioned in this province,” he said. “You go to almost

TO BE HANGED AT KAMLOOPS

Remains ID’d by SFU student XFrom A7

The skeletons were the remains of three men who were hanged and buried on the site of the old Kamloops Provincial Gaol — which used to sit near the front of the current courthouse, on the Columbia Street side. Lawhead said he figures the burial site was approximately where the courthouse coffee shop now sits on the building’s second floor, directly above the firstfloor probation offices and sheriff cells. The oldest of the skeletons was Casimir, who was hanged in 1899. The other two were Joshua Bell and Walter Boyd James, who were executed in 1905 and 1912, respectively.

Because the graves were unmarked, the identities of the skeletons were not immediately clear. However, in 1987, Simon Fraser University archaeology student Lindsay Oliver wrote a report on the discovery and conducted tests that linked the remains to Casimir, Bell and James. Casimir was the first killer to be executed at the Columbia Street site, but his was not the first hanging in Kamloops. Two other men — Albert Mallott and Frank Spencer — were executed before him. In 1886, Mallott was hanged at the site of the original Kamloops courthouse and jail — a white-washed log building located on what is now West Victoria Street,

near where the south end of Overlanders Bridge sits today. Spencer’s execution in 1890 was on another temporary gallows erected at the site of the city’s second courthouse and jail. Located at the corner of First Avenue and Seymour Street, the building sat where Kamloops City Hall stands today. Kamloops Provincial Gaol on Columbia Street opened in 1898. The discovery in 1982 was not the first time bones had been uncovered at Fourth and Columbia. Forty-four years earlier, in 1938, workers installing new heating pipes apparently made a similar find.

However, due to the less-stringent reporting requirements, little is known about what they unearthed, other than the fact they experienced cave-ins on land known to be home to a jail graveyard. Lawhead quit his archaeology job a few years after the courthouse discovery, finding work first as a squash pro and then as a statistics instructor at University College of the Cariboo before finally going to law school. “It is ironic,” he said, referencing the fact he now works in the building on the site of the skeletal discovery 30 years ago. “Of course, at that time, I had no idea I’d ever become a lawyer.”

WHERE ARE THE SKELETONS NOW? Of the three skeletons uncovered at the Kamloops Law Courts construction site in 1982, two of them are no longer in the Tournament Capital. While the remains of Casimir were handed over to the T’Kemlups Indian Band after they were identified, the bones of Walter Boyd James and Joshua Bell headed north. After spending the better part of a century buried in unmarked graves, they are now in a university lab in Prince George. “They’re in our teaching lab and they’re used for educational use,” said Dr. Richard Lazenby, an anthropology professor at the University of Northern B.C. (UNBC).

Lazenby told KTW the remains are used often — “pretty much almost all the time,” he said — and are a rare teaching tool among modern-day universities. While remains from archaeological digs used to routinely wind up in university labs, Lazenby said that practice stopped about 40 years ago. UNBC received the Kamloops Courthouse skeletons from Simon Fraser University in the 1990s, on what Lazenby called “a permanent loan.” He said students are made aware of the fact the remains come from two men who were hanged in Kamloops.

“That’s not a secret,” he said. “We know who they are and we know the circumstances.” The bones of James and Bell are unique because both men were from the United States and neither had roots in B.C. That meant nobody was around to claim their bodies after they were hanged. And, when the skeletons were unearthed decades later, still the pair remained after-life orphans. According to Lazenby, UNBC will likely keep the remains for now. “Until somebody comes forward and says, ‘That’s my relative,’ I imagine we will,” he said. — Tim Petruk

Cop talk tonight at ISC By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A pair of public-input sessions this week will hopefully provide the local RCMP detachment with some information about how to move forward with crime-reduction strategies, according to the city’s top cop. “We feel that, while there is still crime out there, there’s got to be something we can do better,” Kamloops RCMP Supt. Yves Lacasse said during a meeting Tuesday, March 13, with a group of community stakeholders. “I think, internally, there is a sense of pride that we have accomplished a lot. But, we need to stop patting ourselves on the back and look at where we’re going.” The pride Lacasse is referring to stems from the local detachment’s crime-reduction efforts over the last five years, which have seen property-crime numbers fall drastically.

But, according to RCMP statistics, other criminal categories have not experienced the same reduction — and that’s why Lacasse is hosting two publicinput sessions this week, one last night and another tonight, hoping to receive suggestions from the public about future policing priorities in Kamloops. The number of sexual assaults has remained steady over the last three years, with 100 in 2009, 89 in 2010 and 94 last year. Domestic assaults have risen slightly over the same time, from 710 in 2009 to 821 in 2011. Those are two areas of concern for local police, Lacasse said. There have also been significant increases in recent years in drug-offence numbers, but Lacasse said that’s actually a sign of increased enforcement. According to RCMP stats, there were 321 drug-possession offences in 2009, compared to 625 in 2011 — an increase of 95 per cent.

Trafficking and production offences were also up over the same time period, 52 per cent and 67 per cent respectively. Lacasse said those numbers would likely be much higher if the detachment had not been focusing in recent years on keeping gangs out of Kamloops. “Drugs have always been in communities, and drugs will always be in communities, unfortunately,” he said. “But, we don’t have the big gang problems other cities of our size have. We don’t have the problem Kelowna has.” Tonight’s public-input session will take place at the Interior Savings Centre’s Parkside Lounge at 7 p.m. Anyone who was unable to attend, or who wants to submit input to the detachment via email, can do so at kam_strategic_plan_2012@rcmp-grc.gc.ca. Lacasse is slated to meet with City of Kamloops officials later this month to discuss the future of crime-reduction in the city.

Lake says city concerns will be heard By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Concerns expressed by the city hall regarding the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine south of Aberdeen will come through loud and clear, according to Terry Lake, the province’s environment minister and B.C. Liberal MLA for Kamloops-North Kamloops. “The city’s concerned that some of their infrastructure or future planning will be affected,” Lake said. “They are part of the working group, so their concerns will be brought to the table.” City council voted this week to send a letter to the provincial Ministry of Environment expressing some of its concerns, which include

the transportation route from the mine site to the Coquihalla Highway, the location of power lines and the effect the mine operation may have on groundwater in Aberdeen. Lake said those concerns will be heard, and dealt with as necessary, during the assessment process. Meanwhile, due to the concerns from Kamloops residents and because of the proposed mine’s proximity to the city, the province has extended the public-comment period. Originally set for 45 days, the publiccomment period has been extended to 75 days, to March 27. To comment and to read what others have said about the proposal, go online to eao.gov.bc.ca/pcp/

comments/Ajax_ Comments.html. The mine is expected to bring 1,330 direct and indirect jobs during the two-year construction phase, and another 380 direct jobs once the mine is operational. The company also

expects the mine to generate $115 million in municipal tax revenue over its estimated 23-year lifespan. Located within the City of Kamloops boundaries and two kilometres from a pair of Aberdeen elementary schools, the Ajax mine operation

would stretch west to the Coquihalla Highway and is part of the old Afton Mine site. The mine is expected to produce about 50,000 tons of copper and 100,000 ounces of gold per year for the life of its operation.

Lake to keep carbon tax

Public will still have a say on its future By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The carbon tax isn’t going anywhere. That’s the word from Environment Minister Terry Lake, as he prepares to listen to the concerns of British Columbians about the controversial tax. “We’re not getting rid of it,” said the Kamloops-North Thompson Liberal MLA. “If we were to get rid of the carbon tax, we’d have to increase other taxes.” The Liberal government is reviewing the tax, which was impleTERRY LAKE mented by then-Premier Gordon Campbell five years ago. There has been some speculation Premier Christy Clark will axe it altogether, but Lake said that’s not going to happen. But, he said, it might change. “We want to find out what’s the best path forward,” he said. The tax is levied on almost all energy consumption — from school districts heating their

buildings to motorists gassing up their cars. B.C. is only jurisdiction in North America with a carbon tax and Finance Minister Kevin Falcon announced last month the tax would be reviewed this year. The Kamloops-Thompson school district paid more than $106,000 in carbon offsets in each of 2010 and 2011, part of more than $4-million paid by school districts to the Pacific Carbon Trust. That money — including another $14 million from other public institutions — went to subsidize private-sector energy-efficiency projects. The tax was phased in over five years, with increases coming each July. This summer’s increase — which will add 1.2 cents to the cost of a litre of gasoline, Lake said — is the last one slated to take place. Lake said it will be months before the future of the carbon tax is known, but he’s going to try to get feedback from British Columbians to see how they would like the policy to proceed. He said he hopes to begin that public consultation with a Twitter town hall — where users of the social network will be able to interact with Lake and receive answers to their carbon-tax questions. That will likely take place in the coming weeks. Lake said he doesn’t foresee a decision on the future of the tax coming before the end of the year.

2011’s hotel-tax revenue good for Tourism Kamloops year — including the Western Canada Summer Games — had a lot to do with the spike. “Then, on top of our regular tourism, that added another layer that really filled up the city.” Morris said the 10 per cent increase was more than expected. “We went into 2011 with sort of a moderate forecasted growth, because we had such a great 2010,” she said. Tourism Kamloops’ projections for growth in 2012 are five per cent. The hotel-tax revenue goes straight into Tourism Kamloops’ marketing budget.

Last year was a big one for Tourism Kamloops. The local bureau, which has been in operation for less than six years, saw a 10 per cent jump in hotel-tax revenues in 2011 compared to 2010 — which meant more than three-quarters of a million dollars for the agency’s coffers. “It’s absolutely tied to what our levels of accommodation are,” said Lee Morris, CEO of Tourism Kamloops, explaining a number of significant sporting events last

Virtual end for Buy and Sell tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A locally owned classified publication is undergoing some big changes. The Interior Buy and Sell is shifting to a web-only publication, ending its decades-long run in print and resulting in more than a dozen layoffs. “We’re ceasing the printing portion of the paper, but we’re keeping it all online,” said Kelly Pape, who has owned the publication for 26 years. She said readers made the decision a fairly easy one to make. “The paper sales were declining and the Internet was taking off,” she said. “So, we decided it was time.” As a result of the shift, the Buy and Sell let go of all of its employees — 11 workers plus delivery drivers — some of whom had been there nearly 20 years.

Pape said she will now be the sole staffer. “That’s a big change, for sure,” she said. The publication’s website — interiorbuysell.com — will also have a new look. “We are going to try to have a live site,” Pape said. “After next week,

“Fresh, Healthy, Local”

we’re going to be free to post and free to view.” The eventual goal, she said, will be to sell advertising on the site to keep everything up and running. Pape said Buy and Sell is also going to launch a business site in a few weeks, aimed at attracting commercial clients.

Mazda’s 1st time Buyers Program

XFrom A1

“We truly had a very strong field. It makes it out to be a very tough decision.” Trawin said he’s going to take the transition one step at a time. “I’ve got to step back and look at things a little bit,” he said. “I’d like to try to make changes where changes need to be made.” Three early priorities Trawin mentioned

after the announcement were engagement, fiscal initiatives and public accountability. “You want to keep getting more and more efficient as you can,” he said. Trawin has been with the City of Kamloops for nearly nine years. Prior to that, his only other public-sector experience was as an administrator with the City of Terrace. While in the private

sector, Trawin worked as an office manager for an engineering firm

in the Okanagan. Before that, he was employed with a land-development company in Florida. Milobar said Trawin has agreed to a “reduced salary” of $200,000 for the first six months of his tenure as CAO, after which time a performance review will take place. Assuming everything goes well, Trawin’s pay will then be bumped up to the level 1 CAO rate of $220,000.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

ProPASS offers incentives to take bus The City of Kamloops and BC Transit have added an advertising promotion and an e-book-reader contest to its ProPASS program. Purchased through employers via regular payroll deductions for $44 per month, ProPASS offers unlimited travel on transit service throughout Kamloops. “By taking transit, ProPASS users help reduce rush hour congestion and their carbon footprint, plus save money,” said Colleen Lepik, City of Kamloops transportation co-ordinator. “With skyrocketing gas prices, taking the bus is an affordable way to commute to work.”

Compared to monthly bus-pass holders, ProPASS users save $108 a year and, like monthly bus passes, ProPASS is tax-deductible. In addition to saving money, ProPASS is a permanent bus pass, so users no longer have to remember to buy a bus pass every month or have change or bus tickets on hand. The ProPASS program now allows for up to two additional adult family members living in the same household as the ProPASS holder to also sign up for ProPASS and take advantage of the discounted rate. Those signing up before April 22 (Earth

Day) will be entered into a contest to win an e-book reader. Existing ProPASS holders also have a chance to win an e-book reader by sharing their transit story

and why they are a ProPASS user. Employers who register for ProPASS before July 1 will receive six months’ free onboard bus advertising.

LOCAL NEWS CROWING ABOUT THE WEATHER

City of Kamloops A lone crow cries out with his familiar call atop a leafless tree in Riverside Park. While considered a pest by many, the black birds are remarkable intelligent. The PBS documentary, A Murder of Crows, details this fascinating animal. Go to YouTube.com and search “A Murder of Crows” to watch previews of the film. Dave Eagles/KTW

Spring Cleaning Street Sweeping Notice Starting in March, weather permitting, City crews will begin spring sweeping of streets in the valley bottom and working into the higher elevations throughout the City. The Spring Sweeping program on average requires 6 to 8 weeks to complete. In an effort to reduce sweeping time and costs, signs will be posted in the areas that are being swept advising the public not to park on the street. Some high density areas will have parking restrictions posted and/or notices delivered in advance of sweeping, for example, downtown east. Residents who wish to sweep the area in front of their property are advised to remove the pile of sand accumulated as these piles can damage a sweeper, and operators are instructed to swerve around such piles.

LOCAL NEWS Rick Hansen brings the Olympic Torch into B.C. Place Stadium for the opening ceremony of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Hansen will be in Kamloops on Thursday, March 29, as his Man in Motion’s 25th Anniversary Relay makes its way, east to west, across Canada. The relay began last August in Newfoundland.

Man in Motion on his way to Kamloops Twenty-five years after his Man in Motion World Tour began, Rick Hansen is on the road again — and he will be in Kamloops on Thursday, March 29. The Man in Motion tour was undertaken to make the world more accessible to people living with disabilities. The 25th Anniversary Relay began on Aug. 24, 2011, in Cape Spear, Newfoundland. From there, the relay is retracing the Canadian segment of his original tour but, this time, the relay is including 7,000 people from across Canada who have made a difference in the lives of others. The relay will feature medal-bearers who will run, walk, wheel or bike and complete their segments through a variety of forms of movement for all abilities. The Kamloops event will start at 4:30 p.m. at the Tournament Capital Centre and will feature Hansen completing the final 250 metres of his Kamloops segment with Todd Harding, the city’s

local medal-bearer. This event will include demonstrations of wheelchair basketball and Special Olympics floor hockey, as well as a challenging wheelchair-relay race, information booths, entertainment, free food and free parking. The legacy of Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion Tour 25 years ago has resulted in Kamloops being a more accessible community. The two accessible playgrounds at Riverside Park and Prince Charles Park, as well as lift access at Norbrock Stadium and

full accessibility at the TCC, are a few of the projects that resulted from the Rick Hansen Foundation. In addition, there are activities taking place in preparation of Hansen’s visit. The Swimmers in Motion Challenge invites swimmers to record their pool lengths, with lap tracking sheets available at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre, Westsyde Pool and Community Centre and the YMCA/YWCA. The Man in Motion challenge asks participants to record dis-

tances that they walk, run or roll. The tracking sheet is available at the TCC Fieldhouse. As well, the Skaters in Motion challenge is running at Valleyview and Brock arenas, in which skaters are asked to record their laps around the ice. With these events combined, the goal is to travel the full 40,000 kilometres — the distance Hansen completed during his original tour around the world — by March 29.

It was a job he really enjoyed, he liked the kids and they liked and respected him. After he retired they drove to Yuma for winters and once drove all across Canada. He really enjoyed Hawaii as well. He also loved to buy and sell things, and always enjoyed looking for the best deal. He had a great twinkle in his eye and his Coulter charm was known by all. He had a word, a smile and some teasing for everyone he met. He loved sports, curling, baseball and hockey filled his days, and he wasn’t afraid of technology using the computer to keep in touch with friends and family. Recently he discovered a talent for baking, adding muffins to his famous pancake brunches! He was a wonderful father who cared so much for and about his family. He enjoyed where he lived especially his decks and growing his tomatoes. It was close to everything and easy for family to stop by. He looked forward to spring when he could get his scooter on the road and go about his rounds visiting. He was a people person and from playing floor curling to crib games he loved to socialize. The family would like to thank Dr Phil Sigalet and Cheri for their care of dad over the years, he was a regular and felt well looked after by them. His smile and presence will be missed by all, and he leaves a huge hole in our family. We love you dad and were so thankful for all that you gave us over the years.

Passed March 16, 2011 Mom You are my best friend, my hope and my strength. Now that you have surrendered to a peaceful place, I am lost without you. It’s been a year since I saw you last. Things in life are now not the same without you. I think of you everyday and wish you were here so I could tell you how much I miss you and love you. You always tried to lead me in the right direction but often I took the wrong path. I never told you how much strength, courage, grace and beauty you showed me after all you had been through for years. If you are listening, I believe in you and hope you are that angel on my shoulder forever. I want my beautiful Mom to be at peace forever, wherever she may be. Love, Your daughter, Michele You are sadly missed by all your children Todd, Brad and Michele, all your grandchildren, family, dearest friends and especially your mother, Noreen McNight xoxo

The Time Is Now (Author Unknown)

If you are ever going to love me, Love me now, while I can know The sweet and tender feelings Which from true affection flow. Love me now While I am living. Do not wait until I’m gone And then have it chiseled in marble, Sweet words on ice-cold stone. If you have tender thoughts of me, Please tell me now. If you wait until I am sleeping, Never to awaken, There will be death between us, And I won’t hear you then. So, if you love me, even a little bit, Let me know it while I am living So I can treasure it.

Provincial spots on the line at Wild West Fest By Marty Hastings SPORTS REPORTER

HE KAMLOOPS Gymastics and Trampoline Centre (KGTC) will not host a bigger event this year than this weekend’s doublewhammy — the Wild West Fest (WWF) and the provincial trampoline championships. “This is the big annual event and this is the largest its ever been,” said John Carroll, the KGTC’s artistic director.

“Everyone will get those performance jitters, of course, because they’re going to stand up in front of an audience and also some judges.” The group of gymnasts that will likely feel the most heat is the artistic Level 2 athletes, all of whom are competing for a place at the provincial championships, which run from April 13 to April 15 in North Vancouver. KGTC’s Level 2 athletes: In the under10 division, Bella Wood, Christine Strain, Emma Guertin, Linnea

Ganstal and Taylor Baxter; in the 10- and 11-year-old division, Chantal Martens, Martina Fish and Ericka Campbell; and Hope Harvey in the 12- and 13-year-old division. There will be about 260 athletes in competition at WWF and about 160 in action at the trampoline event. The field will be made up of Zone 2 gymnasts representing clubs from Salmon Arm, Penticton, Kelowna, Cranbrook, Smithers and Fort St. John.

Level 2 competition will start at about noon on Saturday, March 17, and run to about 8:30 p.m. The action will pick up again at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 18, and wrap up at about 3:30 p.m. Athletes competing in the provincial trampoline event will get underway on Friday, March 16, at about noon and finish at about 7 p.m. The trampoline action will also run for most of the day on Saturday. A weekend pass for

the event, which will be held at the Tournament Capital Centre, is $20 for adults, $10 for youth and $50 for families of four or more. Day passes are $8 for adults, $3 for youth and $20 for families of four or more. Carroll said there has been a little more excitement than usual at the practises leading up to this weekend’s big events, and the athletes are raring to go. “I think most of them are excited to participate in an event that’s hosted by their club,” he said.

The TRU WolfPack hockey squad will be in British Columbia Intecollegiate Hockey League playoff action at Memorial Arena on either Thursday or Friday. A win against Okanagan College on Wednesday, March 14, would put the WolfPack in action on Friday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m. A loss would set up an elimination game at 4 p.m. at Memorial on Thursday, March 15. For those who can’t make the games, all of the tournament’s tilts will be broadcasted live on playfullscreen.com.

Fog surrounds Storm’s KIJHL future It’s all up in the air for the Kamloops Storm. Game 7 of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League Doug Birks Division final series between the Storm and Sicamous Eagles was played on Wednesday, March 14, after KTW’s press deadline. A win for the Storm and they host Game 1 of the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference final on either Friday, March 16, or Saturday, March 17, at McArthur Island Sports Centre. Dewar said he would like to play on Saturday because his team is “pretty banged up,” but he suggested the Storm’s opponent (should Kamloops win, they will play the Kelowna Chiefs) will do everything in its power to play on Friday.

to one by Washington in the first round of playoffs. The Blues were worse — they finished a dismal 11th in the Western Conference, missing a playoff spot by 10 points. Fast forward 11 months: The Blues, under coach Ken Hitchcock, who took over from Davis Payne after 13 games (6-7 record), were — huge surprise! — the No. 1 team in the West. The Rangers, riding the hot goaltending of Henrik Lundqvist and the determined coaching of John Tortorella, who won a cup in 2004 with Tampa Bay, have been the class of the East all season.

If you want to put down a fiver that says the national anthem singer will finish singing in less than a minute and 30 seconds at a college basketball game in Tulsa next Thursday, somebody on Las Vegas Boulevard would likely quote you odds without a snicker. But you probably would have got a smirk — or maybe even an outright giggle or a belly laugh — had you wagered money last October that the best two teams going into the National Hockey League playoffs in April would be the New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues.

The Kamloops terminal, which is also a receiving site for other Kinder Morgan products from northeastern B.C. bound for the West Coast, contains two storage tanks with an overall volume of 144,000 barrels. The terminal is located at the west end of Kamloops, just off Highway 5.

Pipeline expansion ‘flying under the radar’ By Wanda Chow BLACK PRESS editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE WOMAN ON THE OTHER LINE WAS CONCERNED. A Kamloops resident, she had called the office of BurnabyDouglas MP Kennedy Stewart after participating in a telephone survey he had commissioned to gauge support for a potential twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. She said, “When you phoned, I pushed yes to support the pipeline, then I realized it passed through my backyard so now I want to vote no,” said Stewart, the New Democrats’

associate critic of natural resources. It’s an anecdote that explains part of the concern over the proposal, for which Kinder Morgan has yet to officially make an application to the National Energy Board (NEB). The Trans Mountain pipeline carries crude oil and finished oil products and runs between Edmonton and Burnaby, with a branch line to refineries in northern Washington state. There’s little understanding of what expanding the pipeline means, with some people thinking it’s just a matter of installing pumps to increase capacity, Stewart said. In actual fact, such a project would require excavating the right-of-way

where the pipeline runs, with a construction safety zone of about 300 feet, “which is like a four-lane highway,” he said. Stewart asked the NEB at hearings on the subject in Ottawa whether expropriation of additional land would be required. They replied it’s “very rare,” he said, but most of the time in Canada, pipelines don’t run through densely populated urban areas. The fact the pipeline is underground, and has been there as long as most people can remember, is part of the issue: People simply aren’t aware it’s there and what the potential impacts are if it’s expanded.

Danger of human error The fact the pipeline Kinder Morgan proposes to expand is in an existing right-of-way appears to improve its chances of being approved by regulatory bodies, said Ben West, a campaigner for the Wilderness Committee, a non-profit environmental group. “It seems to me like Kinder Morgan has been trying to sneak under the radar, basically, because they’ve got an existing

pipeline in an existing right-ofway,” he said, which gives the company a “pretty attractive position.” With Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in northern B.C. and TransCanada Pipeline’s Keystone XL pipeline proposal through the U.S. looking like they’re “in trouble,” West said: “I don’t think anybody is happier than [Kinder Morgan CEO and co-founder] Richard Kinder.” The Wilderness Committee’s

“goal is to shine a light on it,” he added. When the organization went door-knocking in Burnaby, he said many residents were not aware the Trans Mountain pipeline has already twinned sections to expand capacity. The discussion is to expand it from a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day to 600,000 barrels daily, something that received strong support from export customers in a recent market test.

WINDOW FASHIONS & DRAPERIES

The BC SPCA believes that if landlords were aware of the signiďŹ cant beneďŹ ts of pet-friendly housing, they would be more inclined to offer it.

This map shows Kinder Morgan pipelines in Western Canada and the U.S.

Lengthy process still to come XFrom B2

West said that would result in a massive expansion of oil-tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet. In 2005, the year Kinder Morgan bought the pipeline, it filled 22 tankers. That has grown to up to 70 per year, with an estimate of 280 by 2015-2016. He noted that, if the proposal goes ahead, it’s expected supertankers will be used that can each carry upwards of two-million barrels of oil. “Every additional tanker is a new threat of an oil spill,� said West. Port Metro Vancouver is considering dredging Second Narrows to accommodate the larger ships with heavier loads. West added Kinder Morgan would also require additional storage capacity at its tank farm if the expansion is approved. As for newer pipeline technology and infrastructure being an improvement over that of decades ago, he said: “They’re definitely less bad, but there’s no such thing as safe because human error can make anything unsafe . . . “Human error is the No. 1 cause of oil spills.

One of the biggest direct advantages of offering pet-friendly housing is increased rental income, since people with pets will pay 20 to 30% more for housing. People with pets also stay longer – an average of 46 months, compared to 18 months for people without pets – saving landlords from having to spend time advertising for, ďŹ nding and screening new reliable tenants. Companion animals have even greater beneďŹ ts to society at large. They assist children with the development of language skills, empathy, responsibility and self-esteem.

STEWART KENNEDY

“I think it’s to be expected there will be incidents,� said West. “If you just look at the last month, there was the rupture at the storage tank on Sumas Mountain [in Abbotsford] and then a week later, there was an explosion at the other end of the pipeline that goes to the refinery in Washington state.� Indeed, the NEB’s most recent report released in December states that in 2009 there were five pipeline ruptures in Canada, three in Ontario, one in Alberta and one in British Columbia.

Studies have also shown that companion animals help reduce feelings of loneliness, anxiety and stress. The BC SPCA recognizes both the need for petfriendly housing, and for responsible tenants who do not abuse the privilege of having pets in their homes. For more information, visit www.spca.bc.ca

Kinder Morgan encouraged by responses XFrom B3

On average, there are 1.9 ruptures on NEB-regulated pipelines each year. There were 83 pipeline incidents reported to the NEB that year, nearly double the 10-year average of 45.1, and included the release of 7,837 barrels of liquid hydrocarbons.

A local example B.C. residents need look no further than the Westridge neighbourhood of Burnaby, which had crude oil showered on it when the pipeline was ruptured in 2007 after a city contractor struck it during sewer-line construction. The incident highlighted the pipeline issue to city hall, said Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, so the proposal has it concerned about direct issues involving possible land use and expropriation, emergency procedures and safety and security of the pipeline. It is also concerned about the potential environmental impact, noting the Westridge spill is “minimal compared to the things that could happen.” From an economic standpoint, “Canada is importing oil on the east coast and exporting oil on the west coast, that doesn’t make sense to a lot of Canadian people,” Corrigan said. “We want to be energy self-sufficient,” he said, noting there are concerns that Chevron, the Lower

LEXA HOBENSHIELD

Mainland’s only refinery, could close. “There’s a multitude of issues and most of it has yet to be discussed,” he said. “I think it’s flying under the radar right now, I think intentionally so.” Without significant opposition to it, the National Energy Board is likely to approve it, said Corrigan, who has yet to form an official opinion until he learns more details but, “so far, it’s not looking good.” Corrigan said what’s worse is a seeming inequity between provinces. “One of the biggest problems of being the corridor for Alberta oil is that Albertans make a lot of money out of this, and British Columbians take a lot of the potential environmental impacts but get very little out of it.”

positive commercial response we received from our customers for a proposal to expand the Trans Mountain pipeline system,” wrote Lexa Hobenshield, its manager of external relations, in an email. “Our next step is to prepare initial project designs and determine the scope and requirements of the proposed project. “We anticipate making an announcement on the scope of the proposed project later this spring.” Following that, it will be 18 to 24 months before it files a comprehensive application with the NEB to initiate the required regulatory review. “We will undertake extensive environmental, socio-economic and other assessments and an open and thorough engagement pro-

cess with communities along the pipeline route and the marine corridor as well as First Nations, industry, governments, and non-government organizations,” Hobenshield wrote. She confirmed there are places along the existing right-of-way where the route of the new pipe would need to change due to factors such as “urban infill” and it “will be engaged with our landowners in discussions about routing in the coming months.” As for safety, she said: “The Trans Mountain pipeline has a safe and efficient track record.” Pipelines are the safest and mostefficient way to transport large volumes of crude oil and natural gas over land, she wrote, add-

ing the company has also been “safely loading oil tankers at Westridge Marine Terminal for almost 60 years.” Kinder Morgan has also actively participated in a five-year process to strengthen existing safety procedures for navigation of Second Narrows. “In our business, we don’t own the product we trans-

TRAVELJb2

Feeling at home in Malaysia By Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

A

SONOROUS CHANT WAKES ME UP. I peer blearily at my watch — 6.a.m. It is a call to prayer from the village mosque and the baritone voice is haunting, the cadences mystical. The sound dies away. Others take its place — a cockerel’s lusty crowing, the chirrup of birds and, from somewhere inside the house, a muffled conversation. Time to get up. I am in Kuala Medang a kampong (village) in the Pahang province of Malaysia, staying with a Malaysian family. We don’t share a common language, but my gentle-eyed host “mother” urges me to eat breakfast with a series of gestures. Malaysian breakfasts are hearty — rice, a bowl of chicken mee goring (fried noodles) and aubergines in a spicy sambal sauce, washed down with milky tea. The young men of the family have already left for work at a nearby palm plantation but my elderly host “father”, dressed in a traditional Malay sarong and tunic, is watching a political rally on TV. He smiles and responds to my greeting, “salamat pagi” (good morning), with a slight bow, hand on heart. Charming! Malaysia’s homestay program has been in place for about 10 years and my host family’s large, Tourism Malaysia-approved bungalow has several bedrooms for family members, in addition to a guest room and bathroom set aside for visitors. The guest book offers comments by local students, as well as quite a few appreciative European visitors. Remarks focus on the grassroots experience of life in a rural setting

— a refreshing change from impersonal city hotels — even though frills like air-conditioning and Western toiletry supplies are absent. Our homestay involves not only our host families, but the entire village community. We drop into a spotless communal kitchen to watch, fascinated, as two women produce skeins of noodles to sell at a local farmer’s market. In an adjoining kitchen, we get handson experience at making traditional Malaysian sweets — dodol (made from glutinous rice and coconut milk), ondeonde (rice and palm sugar balls covered in grated coconut) and curry puffs with dainty fluted edges. Our reward is a high tea, where we sample our Malaysian delicacies and chat about recipes with our hostesses, with the help of our guide and translator, Kamal. The next day, we head into a jungle to visit the Semai — a tribal people living in a world far removed from technological wizardry — to get a cooking demonstration of a very different sort. A wrinkled old

woman and her granddaughter hack away the bark of tapioca roots, stuff the pieces into a hollow bamboo stump with water and salt, and then, along with rice wrapped in Lerek leaves, place the stumps over an open fire. The roasted result is tastier than it looks, specially when eaten along with dry salted river fish. The Semai depend on the forest for their food — whether fruit, plants, vegetables, fish or game. When hunting animals, they wield their traditional hunting tool, a blowpipe. We take turns at blowing through the mouthpiece while aiming at a paper bag hanging off the branch of a nearby tree. While most of our group manage to hit it, my effort goes wide of the mark, evoking much merriment among the tribal children in the audience. Visit over, the group boards dug-out canoes fitted with outboard motors to travel up river — an experience that is at the very heart of Malaysia. The river, like thick brown treacle, winds through dense tropical

jungle of mango, palm groves, rambutan trees and flowering creepers bend to the water’s edge. The air smells of green vegetation and moist soil. Disembarking at a village community centre, we are plunged into activities that are not only unusual but also a lot of fun. Most of us supermarket shoppers only know rice in its sterile packaged form but, today, we run our fingers through yellow kernels from a nearby paddy field. Some of our group, coached by our hosts, roast, crush and thresh soaked paddy to remove the husks from the grain and the result, cooked into a traditional riceflour sweet, is served to us at tea-time. “Top spinning is a fiercely contested sport here in Malaysia,” says Kamal, beckoning us over to watch a topmaker as he painstakingly crafts tops from Malaysian hard wood. Later, we watch a lively top spinning competition between two teams.

Urged on by our hosts, some of us wrap the large heavy tops with sturdy string and whip them with varying degrees of success onto a mat. The day wraps up with a colourful cultural dance performance at the kampong’s Community Centre. I fall asleep to the whirr of my bedroom fan and the faint scent of ripe mangos wafting through my window.

GLOBAL VIEWS

China is building — and facing financial crash

B

UILDING A SKYSCRAPER is the ultimate expression of economic confidence — and more than half of the 124 skyscrapers under construction in the world are being built in China. But, confidence is often based on nothing more than faith, hope and cheap credit, and a frenzy of skyscraper-building is also the most reliable historical indicator of an impending financial crash. The Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, the twin symbols of New York’s emergence as the world’s financial capital, were started at the end of the Roaring Twenties, but completed in the depths of the Great Depression. The Petronas Towers in Malaysia were built just before the Asian financial crash of 1998. Burj al-Khalifa in Dubai, now the world’s tallest building, was just starting construction when the Great Recession hit in 2008. China avoided that recession by flooding its economy with cheap credit — but, that credit has mainly gone into financing the biggest property and infrastructure-building boom of all time. Such booms always end in a crash — but, this time, we are told, will be different. “This time will be different” is the traditional formula used to reassure nervous investors in the last years before a great economic bubble collapses. It was a constant refrain in the run-up to the Western finan-

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH cial crash of 2008 and 2009 and now it is being heard daily about the Chinese property boom. People in the West want to believe China’s economy will go on growing fast because the fragile recovery in Western economies depends on it. Twenty years of 10 per cent-plus annual growth have made China the engine of the world economy, even though most Chinese remain poor. But, the engine is fuelled by cheap credit — and most of that cheap money, as usual, has gone into real estate. Take the city of Wuhan, southwest of Shanghai and about 500 kilometres in from the coast. It is only China’s ninth-largest city but, in addition to a skyscraper half as high as the Empire State Building, it is building a subway system that will cost $45 billion, two new airports, a whole new financial district and hundreds of thousands of new housing units. It is paying for all this with cheap loans from state-run banks. Last year, Wuhan municipality spent $22 billion on infrastructure and housing projects, although its tax revenues were

When construction began on the Empire State Building in New York, it was the end of the Roaring Twenties. By the time it was done, the world was grappling with the Great Depression. Columnist Gwynne Dyer sees the same financial crisis coming as China goes through a building boom.

only one-fifth of that amount. The bank loans were made to special investment corporations and do not appear on the city’s books. The only collateral the banks have is cityowned land — and that is not a reliable asset in current circumstances. Land in Wuhan has tripled in price during the property boom and could quickly fall back to the old price or below if confidence in the city’s future was to falter. That is quite likely to happen, since Wuhan’s housing stock is already so overbuilt that it would take eight years to clear even the existing overhang of unsold apartments at

the current rate of purchase, never mind all the new stuff. Multiply the Wuhan example by hundreds of other municipal authorities also borrowing billions to finance a similar “dash for growth,” and you have a financial situation as volatile as the “sub-prime mortgage” scam that brought the U.S. economy to its knees. Except that, when the Chinese property boom implodes, it may bring the whole world economy to its knees. It would be nice to think the worst of the recession is over in the developed countries and the emerging economies will continue to avoid a recession at all. But, sometimes the

cure can be worse than the disease. China’s strategy for avoiding the economic crisis that has gripped the developed countries since 2008 has laid the founda-

tions for an even worse home-grown recession in the near future. “If you have had a good crisis, success can become a curse,” wrote Albert Edwards, chief economist at the French bank Societé Générale, in late 2010. At that point, Chinese bank lending had almost doubled in three years; it has now almost tripled in four. The government knows the property bubble is dangerous and is trying to switch spending to consumption, but that is a delicate operation that has to be done slowly and there just isn’t enough time. When a housing and credit bubble goes out of control, Edwards warned, “You tap your foot on the brakes and whole thing starts crashing and you can’t control it.” China is heading for a classic “hard landing” and, when it comes, it will slow the whole global economy

to stall speed. The next global recession is not far off, it will be at least as bad as the last one and this time few of the emerging economies (except perhaps India’s) will be exempt. Nobody knows what will happen in China itself when growth stops and unemployment soars, but the Communist regime is clearly frightened of the answer. Maybe it can ride the crisis out until growth resumes at a slower pace in a few years, but with its Communist ideals long abandoned, its only remaining claim on people’s loyalty has been its ability to deliver constantly rising prosperity. If that collapses, so may the regime. Gwynne Dyer is a London-based journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

“It starts with our name — Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc is who we are. Our roots have brought us to the traditional name, our footprints are deep in our lands and it echoes through the wind to the mountaintops.” The band changed its name through a band council resolution, the result of a unanimous vote by the membership almost three years ago however, the change had not been formally accepted by Aboriginal Affairs Northern Development Canada until this week. “We are proud of who we are and the future is only going to be brighter as we continue to develop and foster change for the future,” Gottfriedson said.

The First Nation formerly known to most Interior residents as the Kamloops Indian Band has received official confirmation from Ottawa its name has been replaced with the title of Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc. Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc is the band’s traditional name. Translated into English, it states it is the Tk’emlúps (Kamloops) division of the Secwépemc (Shuswap) Nation, with the word Tk’emlúps meaning “where the rivers meet.” The phonetic spelling of the name is “t-kem-loops tuh sek-wep-am-ooc”. “We are going back to our traditions and customs,” said Chief Shane Gottfriedson.

FAITH

Reclaiming Lent from its morass

T

HE SEASON OF LENT IS WELL UNDER WAY. Whether the 40-day period is practised or not, the eyes of the faithful are upon its culmination on Good Friday, falling on April 6 this year. At the heart of the message of the Word of God is the Cross of Lord Jesus Christ. The Cross has immense implications which affect all men and women everywhere. The implications of that message can be summed up in three words suggested by the language of Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:14,15: “For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one NARAYAN MITRA died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who You Gotta Have live might no longer live for themFAITH selves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.” • Substitution: “He died for all.” Those four words strike at the root of the Christian gospel and tell us God has dealt with sin. Our sin of rebellion and pride — our claim to the right to be independent of Him — He has dealt with this in the person of His Son who was obedient unto death. The Cross declares God has not winked at sin, but has punished it. The sword of His justice has been buried in His own heart for, when Jesus laid bare His breast to the stroke of God’s judgment on human guilt, God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself.

The punishment which was due to us He has borne Himself. Here is the great fact of substitution, seen most clearly at Calvary, yet revealed not only in the death of Christ for us, but also in His life of which His death was simply the climax. • Identification: “One died for all, therefore all died.” This tremendous truth of Christ, by which we may receive forgiveness for our sins, has this immense implication God has nothing of His blessing for anyone except it be in Jesus. The life He lived and the death He died has involved the setting aside by God of every other kind of life. The acceptance of the life of Jesus in heaven is the inevitable rejection of all others. It is impossible for anyone to claim Christ for me in forgiveness, unless they are prepared to accept I with Christ in life and death and resurrection. It is this truth which is desperately in need of re-emphasis today. So many seem to take Christianity upon themselves so easily, almost flippantly. There has been little, if any, understanding of what sin is or of what it has done to all of us in throwing our personality off centre and making us the victim of appetite and desire instead of being the masters of it. Nor is there real appreciation of the fact it is only through our oneness with Christ in His life, death and resurrection that we are not only forgiven, but so made one with the Lord that we are enabled to live victoriously. Now, how is all this possible? That question is answered in the third word which lies at the very heart of Paul’s message. • Sovereignty: “That they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him.”

The offer of God’s free grace demands God’s full government. There can be no conversion without His complete control. We cannot accept Christ as Saviour and live as we like. He must be Lord. But, this is no awful bondage. It is, in fact, perfect freedom. “The love of Christ controls us,” Paul says. It is not his love for Christ, but the love of Christ shed abroad in his heart by the Holy Spirit. This revelation of Christ for us as our substitute and us with Christ in His death has been accompanied by the imparting of His nature within each one of us. This double truth of Calvary, through which we have forgiveness and then share His victory — it is this which controls and restrains, which compels our glad surrender and enables us to do the will of God. The greatest lessons I have learned through years of Christian experience are these: God expects nothing of me except failure. And, as long as I go on trying to be something other than a failure, I shall go on failing. But, God has given to me, in answer to faith and submission, His Holy Spirit, that I need not fail. Every demand that can ever be made upon me in any circumstance is therefore a demand upon His life within me. And, He is always sufficient. That turns Christian living from drudgery into luxury. The discovery of that secret would solve the vast majority of mental and psychological problems. It would also transform defeated, frustrated, despairing professing Christians into radiant men and women of God. Narayan Mitra is a chaplain at Thompson Rivers University.

Are mentally ill more likely to be arrested?

D

ID YOU KNOW 20 TO 25 PER CENT OF CANADIANS WILL BE DIAGNOSED WITH A MENTAL ILLNESS IN THEIR LIFETIME? We have no idea how many Canadians go undiagnosed every year as they struggle to hide the symptoms of their illness out of misplaced feelings of shame and denial. The vast majority of people are not rewarded or even supported when they reveal a mental illness to employers, coworkers, neighbours or even family and friends. Last week, a study done in British Columbia and sponsored by the Mental Health Commission of Canada revealed 40 per cent of people with a mental illness have been arrested at some point in their lifetime. There’s more incentive to reveal your mental illness! Worse, the study indicated incidents involving stun guns, police shootings and fatalities were much higher for this group than for average Canadians. One in 20 police dispatches relate to people with a mental illness. Some police departments, such as the Vancouver Police, said their research of 2008 data indicated that number is much,

much higher for them, with one in three dispatches relating to dealing with a person with mental illness. The study found one in seven contacts with police resulted in an arrest for a person with mental illness. Eighty-five per cent of the mentally ill people surveyed said they were treated respectfully by police, but 90 per cent said police needed more training. The study’s chief investigator, Dr. Johann Brink, who is the clinical services director at the Forensic Psychiatric Services Commission at the University of B.C., was assisted by professors and researchers at UBC, Simon Fraser University, the University of South Florida and the Canadian Mental Health AssociationBC Division. Study participants had a great deal to recommend for police departments: Better training to understand mental illness and its effects and how mental illness might affect a person’s cognition and behaviour. They said officers need training to know how to better communicate in a respectful way with people who

have a mental illness and to treat people with more compassion. Still others suggested police officers have more training and become more skilled at non-violent approaches for dealing with people with mental illness. Many of the surveyed people said how a police officer responds is the major factor that influences whether or not an encounter between police and a mentally ill person will escalate into violence. People in Kamloops are accustomed to the RCMP in this city being proactive in dealing with public issues, so it will come as no surprise that, more than a year ago, the RCMP detachment in Kamloops worked with CMHA staff to bring more information and awareness to frontline officers. In fact, Supt. Yves Lacasse arranged for every active member to receive orientation and training from CMHA regarding dealing with persons with mental illness. The training was brief and had to be fit into officers’ already busy schedules, but the early results are

promising and the Kamloops RCMP

continues to look for opportunities to increase knowledge and skills in dealing with people who have mental illness. Hats off to the RCMP for once again leading the way in
