Man in Motion reaches Salmon Arm Rick Hansen: Celebrations will take place on April 4 at city hall’s Spirit Square. By Lachlan Labere MARKET NEWS STAFF

Hometown heroes will be in the spotlight next week when the 25th Anniversary Rick Hansen Relay walks, runs and rolls into town. To date, 29 Salmon Arm residents have been selected to carry the Rick Hansen

medal on the local leg of the cross-Canada tour that follows the journey Hansen took as part of his worldwide Man In Motion tour to raise awareness, and funds, for spinal cord research. “While our route plans will respect the original Man In Motion World

Tour’s dates and communities, highlighting the progress made over the past 25 years, one of our goals will be to tell the story of everyday Canadian heroes who are making a difference in their communities, their country and the world,” writes Hansen.

Selected for having made a difference in their respective communities, Salmon Arm’s medal bearers include Hannah Baskill, Nora Kennett, Brian Ennis, Nicole Nadin, Patti Brock, Barry Dearing, Petronella Peach, Kate Hiscock, Silken Kleer, Teresa Mckerral,

Amanda Jones, Cathy Evans, Donna Flatman, Linda Hlina, Chali Pattison, Wende Winn, Debi Podruzny, Anne Ram, Abby Vandermeulen, Tyler Stefanyk, Marleen Maas, Malaya

Grow ops busted in rural area By Tracy Hughes MARKET NEWS STAFF

RCMP have taken down their third marijuana grow op in six days in the rural areas surrounding Salmon Arm. The latest search warrant involved a property in the 5300 block of Sunnybrae Canoe Point Rd. where police were looking for an illegal electrical power diversion. The police search on March 26 netted just over 100 marijuana plants. A 24-year-old woman was arrested on site,

while a second woman, 20, later turned herself in to police. Charges of theft of power service are being recommended against both women, who were residing in the home. The women are not being named until formal criminal charges have been laid. Last Thursday, March 22, members of the Salmon Arm RCMP detachment were in Blind Bay, where they executed a warrant in the 2600 block of Blind Bay Cres. The search yielded a marijuana grow of 703 plants. In addition to police

involvement, the dismantling of a third grow operation on Wednesday, March 21 was assisted by Ministry of Environment officials, who were brought in to investigate possible pollution into a nearby creek. Preliminary results leave no cause for concern. The grow operation was being run out of a large shop on a rural property in the 2500 block of Skimikin Rd. RCMP found 860 plants as well as a sizeable amount of dried marijuana bud, with an estimated value of $250,000.

Local citizens to carry medal Continued from front Wolff, Bert Revel, Debra McDonald, Marci Hyatt, Melanie Kohinsky, Dawn Hughes and Dee Lewis. Each medal bearer will travel 250 metres before passing it on to the next person. The medal will stop in Salmon Arm at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 4. Its final desti-

nation of the day is the Spirit Square in front of city hall, where an end-of-day celebration marking the occasion will take place from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Event organizer, Coun. Debbie Cannon, says Amy Witt, a teacher who works with special needs youth at Salmon Arm Secondary, has been given the honour of being the last medal bearer of the day.

Paralympic athlete Marnie Abbott of Enerby will be guest speaker at the event, which will include music, dance and refreshments. The medal stays in the community until April 7, when it will be carried east to Canoe, and onward to Sicamous. In total, the medal will travel through 600 communities on its 12,000 kilometre journey.

Okanagan-Shuswap New Democrats are rallying behind the party’s new national leader. Quebec MP Thomas Mulcair replaces the late Jack Layton as the leader of the country’s official opposition. He won Saturday’s leadership convention, beating strategist Brian Topp and five other candidates. “He’s going to be a great leader. With the support of the new members in Quebec and Quebec supporting a federalist party, it’s a great thing,” said Nick Hodge, Okanagan-Shuswap NDP riding president. Hodge initially supported Niki Ashton’s leadership bid, but then moved to Nathan Cullen through preferential balloting Saturday. Once it was down to Mulcair and Topp, Hodge voted for Mulcair. “It’s important that the leader of the opposition be in Parliament Monday. I didn’t want to wait six months for a byelection,” said Hodge of Topp not having a seat in the House of Commons.

Colin Mayes, OkanaganShuswap’s Conservative MP, is waiting to see if Mulcair changes the dynamic in the House of Commons. “He’s got a job to keep us accountable and I appreciate that,” said Mayes. “I hope the opposition will keep to the issues of governing and not the mudslinging we’ve seen.” Mayes says the Conservatives will certainly try and make Canadians aware of the difference between them and the NDP but he isn’t aware of any plans for negative advertising against Mulcair. Mayes also points out the opposition parties have also been known to pursue negative campaigns against the government. “They always say, ‘We have to get rid of this Harper.’ They can be cruel. It’s important to get your message across but in a civil manner.”

Mark Olsen, provincial Vernon-Monashee NDP candidate, supported Mulcair right from the start. “He’s the right guy to take us to the next level,” said Olsen of the NDP trying to form the federal government in 2015. “He’s well spoke and bilingual in both official languages, which is important. He also strikes me as someone who stands up for what he believes in. He will hold (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper’s feet to the fire.” Former Okanagan-Shuswap candidate Nikki Inouye backed Peggy Nash and Topp, and she is urging Mulcair to continue with what she considers was Layton’s positive message. “He has charisma and speaks very well, a good contender to take on Harper,” she said of Mulcair. “I just hope he sticks to Tommy Douglas’s plan and doesn’t try to move our party to the centre. Positive thinking is what got the orange wave surge and the popular vote. Jack Layton’s message will prevail.”

Symmetry in slaughter GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer After Mohamed Merah died in a hail of French police bullets on Thursday, March 22, people who had known him talked about “a polite and courteous boy” who liked “cars, bikes, sports and girls.” His friends had trouble believing that he had murdered seven people, including three children, in a 10-day killing spree in the city of Toulouse, and none of them believed his claim to be a member of al-Qaeda. “Three weeks ago, he was in a nightclub,” one said. The following day, in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was charged with murdering 17 Afghans, including nine children, in a lone, night-time attack on sleeping civilians in two villages near Kandahar two weeks ago. “I can’t believe it was him,” said Kasie Holland, his next-door neighbour in Lake Tapps, Wash. “There were no signs. It’s really sad. I don’t want to believe that he did it.” There are startling parallels in these cases, right down to the fact that Merah held a little girl by the hair as he shot her in the head, and that Bales allegedly

e l a S

Friday, March 30, 2012 Shuswap Market News

pulled little girls from their beds by their hair to shoot them. And there is, of course, the underlying symmetry of the motives: Both men were responding, in confused ways, to the “war on terror” that former U.S. president George W. Bush launched after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. In Bales’ case, the trigger may have been a fourth deployment to a combat zone after three one-year deployments in Iraq since 2003, during which he suffered a concussion and lost part of a foot. He also had money problems, but it was Afghans he shot, not bankers. In his mind, it was Afghans, Muslims, whatever, who were causing his problems. Both men had runins with the law — Bales for assault in 2002; Merah for stealing a woman’s handbag in 2007. But, Merah spent two years in prison for the mugging and, while there, as is often the case with teenage Muslim thugs, he was converted to the extremist Islamic ideology called Salafism. Merah videotaped his attacks, so we know that just before he shot his first victim, an unarmed French paratrooper, Merah told him: “You kill my brothers. I kill you.” He was an unemployed, small-time criminal with delusions of grandeur, and he wanted to “bring the French state to its knees” in retaliation for French participation in

Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association

America’s war in Afghanistan. Merah’s claim to belong to al-Qaeda; however, was probably just a private fantasy. Predictably, Marina Le Pen, leader of the extreme right National Front, called on French voters to “fight… against these politicoreligious fundamentalists who are killing our Christian children, our Christian young men.” The incumbent rightwing president, Nicolas Sarkozy, says much the same thing, but less bluntly. Yet two of the three French paratroopers Merah killed were Muslims. The other dead soldier, a Christian of West Indian origin, just had the bad luck to be in the street with two Muslim comrades when Merah found them. (He was deliberately targeting French Muslim soldiers as traitors to his cause.) Merah was hunting another Muslim soldier when he found himself outside a Jewish school and seized the chance to murder a young rabbi, his five- and three-yearold sons, and eightyear-old Myriam Monsonego. It was a monstrous act but, in his disordered mind, he believed he was taking revenge for the Muslims who had been killed in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It’s no excuse, but it is an explanation And, the more relevant fact is only one out of perhaps two-million young Muslim French males has committed such an atrocity.

What happened is appalling, but it is statistically insignificant. It should also be politically insignificant, but that may be too much to ask in the midst of a presidential election campaign. The United States is also heading for a presidential election this year, but the only role the war in Afghanistan has in the campaign is ritual accusations by Republican candidates that President Barack Obama is “soft on terror.” (On the contrary, he has become the willing prisoner of the Washington foreign policy consensus that still defends the profoundly misconceived Afghan adventure.) As for the Bales atrocity, it is already being written off by the American media and public as a meaningless aberration that tells us nothing about U.S. foreign policy or national character. Not so. It tells us the character of American soldiers is no better or stronger than soldiers from any other country and it is a reminder that 10 years occupying a foreign country will make any army hated from without and rotten from within. The army will become even more demoralized and undisciplined if it is a professional force that rotates the same soldiers through repeated combat tours with no visible success on the horizon. Obama should not wait until 2014. It’s time to go home.

Friday, March 30, 2012 Shuswap Market News

OPINION Political dirty tricks a turn off Every time an election rolls around there is plenty of hand-wringing and angst-ridden postulating about getting more people out to vote. How do we engage more of the electorate? How do we engage more youth in the political process? The easiest way would be for our politicians and the minions who work for them to stop doing what they’re doing. Two separate incidents to come out of Ottawa that should enrage the Canadian public but will, more likely, just result in them tuning politics out. The first is the revelation that a Liberal party staffer was responsible for the Vikileaks website. This was the one that was Tweeting personal details about Public Safety Minister Vic Toews’ divorce. The excuse that the information was readily available to the public falls flat in light of Vikileaks’ purpose … to smear Toews. Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae apologized in the House of Commons this week. Fair enough, but it’s still dirty politics. Then comes the so-called Robocall scandal. This is where calls made on election day by a firm linked to the Conservative party were directing people away from polling stations. This, if proven to be true, is a lot worse than trying to smear a politician. It’s election tampering, and those responsible should spend some time looking out from the inside of one of the Conservatives’ new prisons. Sadly, this is what politics has become, so those who don’t want to stoop to gutter-sniping and dirty tricks avoid politics… and that’s a shame because our country suffers for it. The only way this type of cellar-dwelling politics can end is if our politicians say “no” to such tactics. And if politicians want more Canadians to become engaged and involved, all they have to do is bring integrity and honesty back. -Prince George Free Press

Changes could have negative impact (Part two of a two part series) As I wrote in last week’s column, the federal government, under Prime Minister Stephen Harper, is currently proposing a number of changes to the Canada Fisheries Act which they are trying to slip through attached to the government’s Budget Omnibus Bill due at the end of the month. These changes would not only virtually eliminate any enforcement of our habitat protection laws, they would also allow industry to, for all intent and purposes, selfgovern their own environmental impact when it comes to various projects, not to mention monitor their own self compliance. I don’t know, but it all seems a bit “iffy” to me. I mean, it was only a couple of years ago that the federal government, under Harper, tried to put through changes to the Navigable Waterways Protection Act. In a similar fashion, these changes were not readily evident. They were contained in the Budget Implementation Act.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray Why would anyone have thought to look within the Budget Implementation Act for possibly changes to the Navigable Waterways Protection Act – changes that would have a negative impact on our lakes, rivers, streams and oceans? There were a number of specific amendments designed to eliminate the public’s rights, through the Navigable Waterways Protection Act, on thousands of waterways across Canada. Those amendments were designed to also eliminate any obligation on the part of industry and developers to consider the impact any new project may have on navigable waterways when building such things as roads, bridges, causeways,

or dams on, through, or around the waters they may cross or cause to change in any way. Back then the federal government introduced their proposed changes to the Navigable Waterways Protection by including wording that exempted “minor waters” and “minor works” from the act and by redefining the word “navigation” under the act in a way that stripped all legal protection from recreational navigation. The government’s “rewritten” act ignored all whitewater rivers, all seasonal waterways, and all vessels with less than a one-metre draft – which effectively included most fishing and/ or water sport boats. At the time, Mark Angelo, chairman of the Outdoor Recreation Council and head of the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s Fish, Wildlife and Recreation Department, stated that “such changes would create a tiered system of waterways, granting government the discretionary authority to identify those waterways deemed worthy

of federal protection… while limiting any assurance of an open and accountable public approval process.” The federal government argued that the changes were intended to remove an antiquated regulatory burden from developers and governments for “shovelready” projects to stimulate the economy. All I know is that all these proposed changes, to the Canada Fisheries Act and the Navigable Waters Protection Act, only serve to allow both levels of government to impose legislation that puts our lakes, streams, rivers and oceans at risk. And I don’t like it. Now, I’m not prone to things like conspiracy theories. Nor do I even totally distrust the government. But I do have a hard time with any government, federal or provincial, that would seem to be intent on sneaking through things that are supposed to be for the good of we, the people – not to mention our lakes, rivers, streams and oceans.

AN UNFORGETTABLE GOLF EXPERIENCE!

Disputing Mayes’ claims Enbridge: Writer not reassured about pipeline plans. MP Colin Mayes claims that the proposed Enbridge pipelines would give Canada energy security (March 23, Shuswap Market News). He fails to mention that when the federal government signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), it gave away control of our energy resources to the market and big oil companies, leaving Canada without an energy security strategy. Unlike Mexico, which negotiated an exemption for its energy supplies, Canada is subject to NAFTA’s proportional sharing clause that obliges Canada to continue exporting oil and gas to the U.S. in the same proportion of total supply as was sold

to the U.S. over the three previous years. Even if Canada is faced with an energy shortage, we can’t prioritize the use of Canadian supplies if this requires reducing the proportion of our supplies that are exported to the U.S. Similarly, if Canada wanted to cut back 10 per cent of its oil production next year for conservation purposes and to fight climate change, it would still have to export 67.5 per cent of its oil to the U.S., leaving Canadians with a domestic shortfall of 46 million barrels of oil a year. As for Mr. Mayes’s claim about taxes and royalties benefiting the economy, consider this: Extracting bitumen from

the tar sands uses vast amounts of natural gas, currently about 15 billion cubic metres a year. But more than half the cost of this gas is paid for by the public through the $1.7 billion in federal and provincial tax breaks that tar sands corporations receive. Furthermore, the corporations can double dip and deduct these same fuel expenses from royalties payable to the Alberta taxpayer. As for the 30,000 jobs that Mr. Mayes claims the Enbridge Gateway Pipeline would bring to B.C., the company’s own web site estimates the number of permanent jobs at 560.

of the spectrum when it comes to resource quality and their environmental impacts are both high frequency and high impact. The surface environmental footprint of the oil sands has expanded exponentially since production got started in the late 1960’s, and grew to 1.5 million barrels per day in 2010. The amount that has been reclaimed is miniscule. The rate of expansion forecast by CAPP, the oil and gas lobby organization Mr. Stringham works for, in its “growth” scenario calls for oil sands production to grow to 3.7 million barrels per day

by 2025 – that’s two and a half times 2010 production (which took 40 years of development). If this forecast is realized, the amount reclaimed will remain very small by comparison. There is no doubt that the oil sands have a large environmental impact, which was pointed out in the Royal Society report Mr. Stringham references. There is also little doubt that oil sands production will continue to grow as the projects currently under construction will see production expand by 50 per cent over 2010 levels. The oil sands production growth rates

that projects such as the Northern Gateway pipeline are based on are highly unlikely to be realized, for capital and logistical reasons. The no-holds-barred oil sands expansion plans of governments and CAPP are unrealistic and demand a national discussion on energy policy to protect the long-term energy security and environmental interests of Canadians.

Oil sands approach detrimental to Canadians Regarding the letter, “Executive disputes oil sands information” Friday, March 16. The letter writer, Mr. Stringham, cites the oil sands as being “the third largest oil reserve in the world...”. This may be true in a simplistic comparison of purported numbers, but is “apples and oranges” when comparing oil sands to the large conventional oil deposits in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. With oil production “there is no such thing as a free lunch,” in that there are always environmental impacts to varying degrees. Oil sands represent the bottom end

# The Titlewave Book Club of Buckingham Palace poses outside the gates of their workplace. The club has invited the Blind Bay book club of the same name to meet sometime.

London calling book club A pen pal was a special friend when I was a child. Getting that letter in the mailbox with a stamp and postmark from a foreign land was exciting. Today’s email is certainly reminiscent – I marvel at the speed which we are able to communicate around the globe. Sharing common interests is a way of connecting with each other, even though we are physically a vast distance apart. Reading a book is even more enjoyable when we can share our perspective with others. The Titlewave Book Club in Blind Bay was contacted recently by a club with the same name in, of all places, Buckingham Palace in London, England. With the search engine tools available online, the Buckingham Palace group discovered the twin club and mailed a meeting invitation, on of-

OUT AND ABOUT Lynda Hooper ficial stationery, to the Blind Bay group. The London Titlewave Book Club is made up of staff who work at Buckingham Palace, and no, Queen Elizabeth II is not a member. The club members take turns hosting meetings at their homes. Upminster, Cranham, Hornchurch, and Gidea Park (where most of the members live) are some of the towns which make up the London Borough of Havering. It is some 15 miles east of central London, and forms part of outer London. Because of the

proximity to London, many commute to London, where they work in a variety of mostly financial services institutions – banks, insurance companies, the stock market and accountants. Havering is part of a large suburban sprawl, bordering on green spaces. There are some 230,000 people in 43 square miles, and more than half the borough is metropolitan green belt. Havering has the lowest unemployment rate in Greater London, and one of the lowest crime rates. According to Wikipedia, the modern settlement originated in Anglo Saxon times when it consisted of Havering Palace, and the surrounding lands that belonged to Edward the Confessor, being one of his primary residences. Queen Elizabeth I is said to have ridden with her courtiers down what is now Up-

minster’s high street, commanding “Corbettstay,” whereupon the street became known as Corbets Tey. King Henry VIII (he of the six wives fame) used to hunt in Havering-atte-Bower. Following the Second World War, when there was a lot of bombing in London and many were made homeless, people moved out of London particularly, from the east end, to what was then the countryside. A large proportion of those now living in Havering have progressively moved here since the last generation. The area is known for good schools, largely owner-occupied houses, and some with large gardens. As we know, a significant number of Brits emigrated to British Columbia after the Second World War, some settled in the South Shuswap.

Funding helps to finish Blind Bay Road trail The Columbia Shuswap Regional District received a $690,000 grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development to assist construction of a parallel paved trail along Blind Bay Road. This project will provide a safe and accessible transportation alternative for residents currently sharing the busy roads with vehicles. The trail has been in progress for eight years, and is about 50 per cent complete. The CSRD has been funding the work of the South Shuswap Recreation Trail Society in this project by way of an annual grant-in-aid bylaw which is set to expire in 2012. The South Shuswap Recreation Trail Society completed many sections of the trail, but bypassed the sections with difficult terrain. This provincial grant, given under the Community Recreation Program, will provide funding to complete this portion which has rock bluffs, steep slopes and poor stability. This grant will enable connections between com-

pleted portions, as well as beginning construction at the Sorrento end of the Trail. “I’m extremely happy,” says Judith Nerbas, one of the Directors of the South Shuswap Recreation Trail Society. “Hopefully we can get a good portion completed. It’s wonderful.” CSRD Parks team leader Marcin Pachcinski says this is good news for local residents and for all who have worked hard on this project. “We are thrilled about this funding announcement. It will certainly give people the opportunity to get out of their vehicles more and enjoy Blind Bay on foot or bike,” says Pachcinski. “Project wise, the good news is that all the engineering drawings have already been completed. We will be meeting with our engineers in a few days to get a better sense of how quickly we can put shovels in the ground.” South Shuswap Director Ted Bacigalupo says he’s pleased to have this generous financial boost for the trail.

“This very significant support provided by the province, with the help of our MLA, will go a long way in helping complete the Blind Bay Roadside Trails in the South Shuswap. The South Shuswap Trail Society and the CSRD have been working on this project for nearly 10 years to provide a safe walking, biking and exercise trail. The financial support could not have been timelier and it couldn’t be more appreciated.” Shuswap MLA George Abbott says the grant for this project, along with one for Sicamous ($314,989 for Finlayson Park) and Spallumcheen ($128,000 for McLeod Subdivision Park), are significant investments in the local area. “I am very pleased that the communities of the Shuswap have received such a substantial investment through the Community Recreation Grant Program, which will promote physical activity and healthy choices by creating new and enhanced places for residents to get out and get fit.”

Historic routes recognized By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

Twenty-five historic street signs will be created this year to increase awareness of the historic pattern of development in the city. The plan is part of the Community Heritage Commission’s proposal to implement a Historic Road Names Program. Unlike some road signs in town that already have a contemporary sign above with the historical equivalent on a much smaller marker below, the new signs will include a regular sign on top with a brown, more rustic name plate of nearly the same size below. The budget for the 25 signs is $2,000.

City staff reported there are 360 potential locations for the sign program. At the March 5 meeting of the city’s planning and development services meeting, Coun. Alan Harrison, the city’s rep on the heritage committee, said he’d like to thank the committee for all its work, particularly because the sign program has been complicated to create. Some signs were straightforward, he explained, in that the current name of 2nd Avenue NE is quite different than its historical equivalent Harris Street, for instance. Where it can get complicated is in cases like Ross Street, which was previously Ross Avenue. Instead of having a strange combo of conflicting

signs, the committee decided to have the historic sign in that case say “Historic Route.� Harrison said the committee wrestled with whether to have the signs state “Historic Street� or “Historic Road� or “Historic Avenue� and decided on Historic Route so there would be no confusion based on the street’s current status as a street or road. Coun. Denise Reimer thanked the committee for planning to have both the historic and contemporary names well-marked, noting that as a person who works in emergency services, she know how important having well-marked signs is for the ability of personnel to respond quickly.

Cameras give hunter a new view By Lachlan Labere

“It’s a great hobby for anybody that’s interested in photography or wildlife, other than your cameras going missing from time to time, it’s lots of fun, and it gets you out in the woods and you really get a feel for what’s around,” says Hutchinson.

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Knowing one’s quarry is key to being a successful hunter. Bow hunter Andy Hutchinson has an intimate understanding of local deer, as well as coyotes, bear, elk and other animals, because he shoots them regularly – with a camera. Hutchinson is something of a wildlife photographer. Not in the traditional sense, where one stands in the wilderness, camera mounted on tripod, waiting for that perfect moment to release the shutter. No, like many hunters and outdoors enthusiasts, Hutchinson has adopted digital camera technology to compliment his bow hunting. He uses a variety of small, weather-sealed digital camera devices, contained in small boxes that are intended to be attached to trees. The devices run on a timed motion sensor, and when an animal, or anything, passes in front, the camera is triggered to take stills or video. Hutchinson says he’s been shooting this way for about five years, and over that time he has acquired thousands of pictures and video clips of various animals undisturbed in their natural environment. Although, he says sometimes the animals are curious about the cameras and, on the odd occasion, put on more of a show than bargained for. One example is a series of video clips of a bear discovering, and subse-

They give him a visual record of what’s in the area and, in the case of deer, of their size and maturity. “For archery, you really have to know deer, understand them to get close enough to shoot them. So this is a real useful tool,” says Hutchinson. “ And when you target specific deer… It makes it quite a bit more challenging, interesting and personal.” The camera devices range from around $70

and up, and offer a variety of options for image capture, including infrared for nighttime pictures and video, flash photography and time-lapse video. From a photographic standpoint, Hutchinson says he’s been highly impressed by the image quality he’s obtained from these little outdoors cameras. “I’ve had some really nice pictures where people have said, you can’t get pictures like that from a cheap camera. Well, it did,” laughs Hutchinson. While the cameras have proven a useful tool for Hutchinson, there is a downside to leaving such gear unwatched in the woods: theft. Hutchinson says he’s had people take his memory card and turn the cameras off. More recently, an entire camera was jacked from a tree near Bud Sherlock’s property. This time it wasn’t a bear. Hutchinson knows this

because of the twocamera method he was using, where one camera was in view of the other. “What’s interesting about this instance is I actually had a camera close to where the other camera was and they didn’t notice the one, they took one and left the other one,” says Hutchinson, who has a video of a quadder pulling up by the tree and the rider getting off. He says he isn’t interested in taking the video to the police, but asks that the person who took the camera simply call the phone number written on it, and see that it’s returned – no questions asked. Hutchinson can also be called at home at 250-836-3059. Despite such incidents, Hutchinson remains very enthusiastic about this type of photography and recommends it to anyone seeking a different view of the natural world, uninhibited by man.

Legalizing marijuana raises many health concerns I am writing on a subject that I do not have personal experience with, nor am I an expert on. In fact, I have never used this illegal drug. I will be referencing people that are experts on the effects of marijuana regarding the health and social wellbeing of users. One of the problems our government is dealing with is the medical use of marijuana. Canadians can grow marijuana for medicinal reasons if the drug is prescribed by a physician and a growing permit is acquired. The permit only allows the cultivation of quantities needed for the single user. Very few permit holders abide by the guidelines. In Abbotsford, in 70 per cent of the illegal grow operation busts by police, the producer does have a medical marijuana permit. So what to do? Should doctors be disciplined for not being more conscientious in prescribing the drug? Should there be better monitoring of the permit holders by a regulatory body, (this would be expensive)? Well, the answer might be in classifying marijuana the same as any other drug. For example, contract private enterprises to supply the drug and have it dispensed through local pharmacies. In this way, those that have a prescription for medical marijuana can only obtain the drug through a controlled supplier. Any other sale of marijuana would still be illegal. There are side effects to marijuana as there are in many drugs that are used to address various health needs. Here is a quote from Dr. Henry T. Chuang: “As a psychiatrist who has been practising for more than 30 years, I have seen the extensive harm smoking pot has done in terms of mental well-being for countless people and their families. Many small marijuana growers share or sell their crop with others, whose brains became poisoned, resulting in paranoia, psychotic behaviour, amotivation and many

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes of these damages become chronic and long lasting, contrary to what most people think.” Wow, these are serious side effects. Journalist Brian Hutchinson states in one of his articles: “The facts are: cannabis products are laden with harmful chemicals; marijuana smoke contains car-

cinogens and damages respiratory systems; consumption impairs cognitive functions, especially among youth, who are more susceptible to serious psychological and physiological effects than adults.” Wow, that is dangerous to our youth. So the question I have is – why would the NDP and Liberal parties wish to legalize this drug? I thought that our responsibility as elected representatives was to provide policy that would protect the health and safety of Canadians, especially youth. I think anyone that believes in organic foods, natural health products, healthy life-

FLEMING, LOIS With heavy hearts we announce the passing of (MaryJean) Lois Fleming nee McCauley at the age of 60 in Salmon Arm Friday March 23, 2012. A long-time resident of Salmon Arm and more recently Enderby, Lois had several health issues and was in the care of the Shuswap Lake General Hospital when she suffered heart failure. Born Sept. 30, 1951 in Burns Lake BC to Jim and Audrey McCauley; the oldest sibling of Enid, Martha, and Dan McCauley, she grew up in Salmon Arm going to Salmon Arm Secondary High School. Upon graduation she studied at the Okanagan College. She became a Dental Assistant working with Dr. Shields in Salmon Arm where she became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It was there she met Alfred J. Fleming and was married to Alfred July 13, 1974 in Cardston AB and embarked upon her happiest years as a mother of 7 children. Being a mother and a grandmother was her crowning achievement and the delight of her life. In so doing she served in numerous capacities in the schools where her children attended developing cherished relationships and making life-long friends. She also was involved in Boy Scouts serving as a leader and area trainer. Many friends were made throughout her life all of which she tenderly cherished. Lois is survived by her husband Alfred Fleming and her children Joseph (Patty) Fleming, James (Tanis) Fleming, Lanny (Tanis Elaine) Fleming, Jesse Fleming, Laura Fleming (Nathan Appleby), Leah (Dan) Broadwood, and Anna (Willie) Olsen and her 12 grandchildren. She is further survived by her father Jim McCauley and sister Enid McCauley, her sister-in-law Kathy McCauley and numerous nieces and nephews. Lois Fleming is pre-deceased by her mother Audrey McCauley, her sister Martha McCauley and her brother Dan McCauley. A funeral service will be held at the LDS church in Salmon Arm Friday March 30, 2012. Open casket viewing will be from 9:30 – 10:30 am and the service will commence at 11:00am. After the service a reception will be held in the same facility after which she will be interred in the Enderby Cliffside Cemetary. All who wish to attend the ceremonies are welcomed to do so. Finally, the family of Lois Fleming would like to sincerely acknowledge and thank all those who have visited, called, and sent gifts in her honor. They have been gratefully received. We would like to thank Bower’s Funeral Home and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for their support and assistance at this difficult time. E-mail condolences can be sent Lois’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Funeral arrangements are in the Care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm, BC

styles or social responsibility, but supports legalizing marijuana, for anything other than medicinal purposes, is hypocritical. Using marijuana has negative effects on the health of

the user and undermines the social well-being of society. By the way, in citing other products that are legal but have negative effects on society, does not justify legalizing marijuana.

Proposed Road Name Change

Juniors, masters represent ski club well

TRAIL TALES Marcia Beckner The end of March and the ski season is winding down in the Larch Hills. With the warm, wet weather, the tracksetter does what it can but even if it hasn’t been out, spring skiing is lovely. This is when those waxless skis are brilliant. And if you don’t mind a bit of finger stickiness, klister is terrific. Daily reports on the Larch Hills website give the lowdown on the conditions, and the webcam shows that there is plenty of snow in the stadium area. (www.skilarchhills.ca) How exciting to head to the Zone 4 website during the Canadian Championships last week and see the terrific results of the Larch Hills racing team members. First off, John Connor and Thomas Hardy garnered a silver medal in the sprint relay

in a very competitive age class. Imagine ski racing on the Plains of Abraham. On our last trip to Quebec City, Jim and I spent hours walking the plains and reading all the plaques and monuments there surrounding the Montcalm/Wolfe battle. So much history – and now our skiers make history on those same plains. The National Championship races were split between the Plains of Abraham and the trails at Mont Sainte-Anne. Later that week, John Connor skied to gold and Alysson Marshall skied to silver. And the rest of the race team did very well in their results. Proud of the skiers making such a good showing for the Larch Hills Nordics. Al Hardy, who accompanied the LH team as waxer, says the team arrived to winter in Quebec but two days later it was spring. Very challenging waxing! He went through many tubes of klister, for sure. Snow was a scarcity on the Plains of Abraham later in the week so 100 truckloads of snow were brought in. That snow was mush in a couple

Independent of the races, the team managed to get a taste of Quebec with a visit to a maple bush – sap has already been running a couple of months. Also attended the downhill ice skating races. Thousands of people lined the track to watch these extreme skaters. Our athletes at the Canadian Masters Championships in Golden acquitted themselves well with Abbi and Brian May each winning their prospective 30-kilometre loppet distance on the final day of the championships. Reports from other attendees indicate the championships were fun and a success.

The LHNS AGM was held early March with reports on this year’s committees, programs and events, and looking to next year’s ski season. Looking around the room at the cadre of dedicated volunteers and realizing this is just the tip of the iceberg, I can see why our club is so strong and attracts 950 members. I am proud to be a part of this vibrant scene. This is it until the fall and the new ski season. For a change I am not going to say ‘think snow!’ Instead, let’s get on with spring – but realize there will be nice spring skiing in the Larch Hills well into April.

Multiple achievements Two UBC Okanagan Heat athletes have placed among the 162 student-athletes from across the nation that have combined excellence in collegiate athletics and academics – one of them from Salmon Arm. Salmon Arm’s Cody Bell from the Heat’s golf program, and Hayley Carlson, a Heat women’s soccer player, are among the recipients of Academic All-Canadians. Bell is a first-year golfer for the Heat who earned the PACWEST Golfer of the Year honours after having the lowest aggregate score among all PACWEST men’s golfers for the fall of 2011. The SIRC (Sport Information Resource Centre)

– Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Academic All Canadian award is the CCAA’s most prestigious studentathlete honour, epitomizing both organizations’ commitment to academic success and athletic achievement. Honourees must attain academic honours at their institution, in addition to obtaining athletic achievements. For UBC Okanagan, only athletes from the golf and soccer programs were eligible to win the award this year as the volleyball and basketball programs now compete in the CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport). The CIS will honour their Academic AllCanadians in the fall.

MEETING NOTICE

Lynda Hooper While many students were kicking back taking it easy during spring break, there was a group at the Adams Lake Indian Band who participated in a Crime Prevention: Gang Awareness Program. The two-day conference was attended by middle school-aged students upward including adults from surrounding areas. Reid Narcisse, Rebecca Jules, and Curtis Ahenakew were facilitators, with story telling by Lawrence Michel in between workshops. Curtis Ahenakew was the facilitator Tuesday, March 20 at the ALIB gymnasium. Ahenakew is an actor/film producer from Vancouver, who has had personal experience through a daughter’s gang involvement. He said she is no longer a gang member but the brainwashing has not completely left her even after years on the outside. Though Vancouver is the centre of gang activity in Canada, the network is vast with 130 known criminal gangs in B.C., 102 of which are youth gangs. In the last three years, there have been more than 100 murders linked to gangs and gang violence in B.C. Most gang members (60 per cent) are visible minorities. “Even though our gun laws prohibit the sale of handguns, illegal weapons are coming over the U.S. border, purchased easily south of the border

The Canada Day Committee will meet on

Monday, April 2nd at 4:30 p.m. at the Village of Chase municipal office. Volunteers are needed to ensure a successful event. See you there!

# Curtis Ahenakew speaks about the power of

colours in forming a gang. With a blue tag over one knee and a red tag on the other, he led a session of role playing while speaking about how the old ways of ‘tagging’ have been replaced by tattoos and joining groups through social media. and smuggled north,” Ahenakew said. “These weapons are appearing all over Canada in our communities.” He cited young people as the most targeted of the population by gang recruiters, more easily drawn in to the ‘thug life’ from a naive attraction to adventure and easy money selling drugs. Poverty, a need for belonging and dysfunctional family dynamics can create the environment for vulnerability where gang recruiters will find likely candi-

dates for crime involvement. One woman, whose identity cannot be revealed under victim protection, spoke of how the problem is real in our area. Her family had been moved out of the community to avoid further gang involvement. Salmon Arm high school student Julianna Arnouse and conference participant remarked: “I want to learn so I can help free the community from gang activity.” Ahenakew referenced information from a previous workshop

he’d attended with Dr. Martin Broken-Leg. According to BrokenLeg, kids get into trouble between 3 and 6 p.m., usually when parents are working and there is no supervision. He said children/ youth will stay in school if there is one staff person in that school who makes them feel special, that they are wanted. It can be the teacher, lunch room monitor, librarian, principal. All it takes is for that one person to show an interest in them. Children have already decided subconsciously in Grade 7 whether they will stay in school and graduate, he said. Conference organizers Andrea Stelter and Craig Duckchief were pleased with the successful event.

about the same amount of sodium. Try adding flavour to food with salt-free spices, herbs, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, and onion instead of salt. Myth #4 – There’s no such thing as “too much sodium” for kids. Kids only need 1,000-1,500 mg of sodium per day. Most Canadian children consume more than this and in the long term it can lead to health problems like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and high blood pressure. Snack foods that are popular with kids, like crackers, chips, instant noodles, beef jerky, and packaged lunch kits, often contain a lot of sodium.

BOYLE, MITCHELL DUANE 1961-2012 Mitch passed away peacefully at Shuswap Lake General Hospital on March 19, 2012, after a long illness. He was born on May 4, 1961 in Hawthorne, Nevada, USA. He was predeceased by his father, Richard Lee Boyle, in 2006, and his oldest daughter, Melisa Boyle, in 2010. He is survived by his mother, Nelly Boyle and Al Balch, daughter Tracy Moore, grandchildren Tamieka Mazur, Destiny Mazur, Camilla Moore and Logan Moore. Also, brothers Eric and Nathan(Angela) Boyle, nephews Nick Boyle, Demetri Boyle, niece Mercedes Boyle and step-nieces Stephanie and Melissa Peterkin. He also leaves many caring aunts, uncles and cousins. Mitch was always a hard-working person. He worked in a variety of fields over his lifetime, including logging, heavy equipment, truck driving, cab driving, and construction. He drafted and built/re-built several houses. Mitch highly valued working and found ways to keep busy even when injured or ill. Mitch’s favorite pastime was fishing. He loved taking his daughter, niece, and nephews out on the boat for a half-day, just to relax and enjoy the sport. He also enjoyed cooking, especially when others were at the table. In a sense, Mitch led two lives--his earlier days were darkened by numerous mistakes and character defects that surely have lead many to dislike him. But those of us fortunate enough to spend time with Mitch in his later life got to know a wonderful man, with a warm heart, respectful demeanour, and wholesome values. In his later days, Mitch held a boundless optimism that carried him through the hard times and led him to always try and try again. His greatest desire was to help and serve others, though, tragically, as this desire increased his body’s abilities decreased. His daughter hopes that as people remember Mitch’s life they will forgive his errors and celebrate his passion for life, for family, that kept him up when pain wanted to keep him down. May he now rest in peace. By request there will be no service. Online condolences can be sent through Mitch’s obituary at www.bowesfuneralservice.com. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Service, Salmon Arm, BC.

Honesty Makes a Difference

McCOY, KEITH DENLY Keith Denly McCoy passed away on March 20th, 2012 at Piccadilly Care Center with his family by his side. Keith was born July 27th, 1921 in Vancouver, B.C. The ocean was a huge part of his upbringing and he spent many hours swimming and paddle boarding with friends in English Bay. As a young man he competed on a sculling team. After graduating from High School, Keith worked as an airplane inspector for Boeing in Vancouver and served with the Air Force during the Second World War. After the war, he took his teacher training. He was an industrial arts teacher and eventually a Vice-Principal at Revelstoke Senior Secondary. There he met and married Doran Vimy Middleton in Revelstoke, where they brought up their two children, Deni and Mark. During the early part of his teaching career, he spent summers in Field B.C. building trails and buildings for Parks Canada. In later years, Keith spent the winters skiing with his family and the summers fishing at the family cottage on the Shuswap Lake. After retiring in June of 1979, Keith designed and built a beautiful home for he and Vimy in Sicamous. He was an extremely skilled carpenter. He could repair anything and took great care and pride in the quality of his work. His attention to detail in everything he did was equal to none. Keith and Vimy travelled the world and filled their home with items collected from every continent but Antarctica. The photographs depicting their journeys were outstanding. Keith lived by several mottos: measure twice and cut once; never give up; do your best; earn others trust and remain loyal. His influence and direction made a difference in his family and students’ lives. Keith was predeceased by his wife, Doran Vimy, son Mark, parents Frances Sadie and Jack and sister Joyce. He is survived by his daughter, Deni and grandchildren, Keenan, Ryan and Dana. Thank you to Dr. Beech and the staff at Piccadilly Care Center for their kindness and care. Thank you to our families and loved ones for their support and love. Special gratitude goes to Sue McCrae for her constant support on his final journey. A celebration of Keith’s life was held at Bower’s Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, March 27th, at 3:00 P.M. Donations in memory of Keith can be made to the Cancer Society. Online condolences can be sent through Keith’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.
