Armorworks is part of a consortium of major multi-national companies bidding on a purchase and maintenance contract with the Canadian army for the Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle Program (TAPV). On April 3, Armorworks, located on Jim Bailey Crescent, hosted a supplier conference, to meet and greet potential supply chain companies should the contract bid be successful. The conference was deemed a success by Armorworks as hopes are high that the expected June federal announcement will be favourable. Armorworks supplies and installs “survivability� products. In the TAPV program, that means the company would install blast protection seating, strategic shielding of the vehicle and other important components that boost the survival and protection factor for Canadian troops operating in combat environments. The TAPV sought by the federal government is to be highly protected and incredibly mobile. The program cost has been budgeted $1.3 billion. The federal government has a strong requirement that contract dollars be spread across Canada to support jobs in diverse communities.

The intention of the Armorworks group is to entirely build the TAPVs in Canada. Armorworks invited Western Canadian companies to identify quality suppliers. Decision makers with the multi-nationals that Armorworks has partnered with were also on hand to meet the 80 conference attendees from 48 companies. Martin Cronin, dir-

WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND QUALITY PEOPLE LOCALLY. Martin Cronin

ector of government and corporate relations for Armorworks, said most Canadians would be pleasantly surprised to find out there are many high-quality manufacturers in Canada. “There are some very, very good companies doing the type of work we need in Western Canada,� Cronin said. “There are steel fabricators, heating, cooling, cable systems, many of which are in the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.� Should Armorworks and its partners win the contract, it would mean jobs at those companies and a huge injection of

jobs directly into the local economy. “If we are the successful bidder, there would be an initial hiring for 12 to 18 months, an intense build period and then a 29-year service contract,� said Cronin. The numbers attached to that are approximately 150 long-term jobs at the Armorworks buildings and an additional 200 to 300 supply chain jobs, mostly in the Okanagan Valley. Should the contract be awarded to Armorworks there is an export market to approved countries waiting to be approached as well. The jobs would be high quality, including skilled manufacturing, as well as engineering and administration. Armorworks has taken on extra space at its current location to handle the expansion inhouse. The company is currently managing growth with a separate project that has seen an additional 35 jobs in the past few months at the company. “We have been able to find quality people locally,� said Cronin. Winning the TAPV contract would have a long-term impact on the company and the community, Cronin added “Obviously this contract would be a huge win for us and it would allow us to chase larger projects in the future that we can’t yet go after,� he said.

Winfield Easter egg hunt Easter eggs were in high demand last Saturday as hundreds turned out for the annual Easter egg hunt at Jack Seaton Park in Winfield. As a warm-up for the hunt, the crowd was entertained by magician James Johnson (below), prior to heading off into the woods in search of the chocolate treats (right). Even the little ones, like Lenneth (bottom right), who hung out with her mom, Kathleen Pearson, enjoyed the day. And to help make the event a success, the sun shone brightly throughout the day’s festivities.

Province gives regional district the green light to build new breakwater BOBBI-SUE MENARD CONTRIBUTOR

The Central Okanagan Regional District has received written approval from the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations to construct a new breakwater at Safe Harbour this summer. RDCO received written approval from the ministry on March 28.

The work will include a new solid wall on the south side of the harbour and refurbishment of the north wall. The south wall will be constructed south of the existing recreational fishing pier. The new wall will be constructed on steel piles, but will not have decking. The public will not be able to access this wall. The south break water

wall will be constructed first between the months of late April to June 21, while water levels are still relatively low. Full pool of Okanagan Lake usually occurs around late June. The refurbishment of the north breakwater will take place later in the season, between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30. Those dates are between the fisheries in-

stream work window. The north break water will be getting an extensive face lift that should improve both the look and functionality of Safe Harbour. Rotten wood piles, decking and batter boards will be replaced with new wood piles and treated wood timbers. The design of the breakwater, recreational fishing pier and courtesy

dock were based upon the design criteria set out by the province. There is a red zone designation over the harbour. The red zone areas on Okanagan Lake are very important to Kokanee productivity, for habitat and spawning. Red zone criteria for construction include the elevation of docks must be a half meter above high water mark, no bat-

ter boards on docks, no floating structures, and no piles within the foreshore spawning area. The regional district has sent out the request for proposals and it is hoped the work can be get under way as soon as possible. Safe Harbour is the destination of choice for boater on Okanagan Lake in the Lake Country area when unexpect-

ed severe weather comes up the lake. There are few other points on the lake to safely tie up during a squall and Safe Harbour has proved to be a refuge for boaters on many an occasion. It is also a popular boat launch site with locals sometimes taking the chance to drop a line in the lake from the public fishing pier.

Time for us to get tough on cyclist and motorbike helmet usage

DEADLINES

To the editor: Both levels of government should take a long hard look in the mirror and question themselves as to their possible part in the tragic death of two men recently. First, a man was in a collision with a truck and trailer while not wearing a no bike helmet. Why not? I would assume that (Kelonwa) city council has not made it a priority for the RCMP to enforce the law; a law which is very much enforced in Victoria. There, no one, absolutely no one, rides without a proper helmet. I asked a cyclist in Victoria what happens if they do ride without a helmet and he just smiled and replied that the helmet cost is far less than the fine, so everyone wears one. But not here.

v Second, a man was struck from behind while riding his motorcycle. It was not his fault he was not wearing a Department of Transportapproved helmet. Why not? Simply because our provincial government does not require it. Surely the pain and suffering of a brain injury, not to mention the cost to our medical system, would make such a requirement mandatory. In both cases, I don’t lessen the responsibility both these gents had for their decisions on riding with improper head gear. Many laws imposed on us are put there to protect us from some of the poor decisions we are all capable of making from time to time. Jerry Hlady, Kelowna

Political spotlight falls on B.C. Conservative leader

T

he information age might have sped up B.C. voters’ mood swings, but the basic dynamic hasn’t changed since the days of Social Credit. When familiarity breeds contempt, people vote to reject the familiar and see what happens. Or as one radio talk-show caller summed up his decision to climb on board the B.C. Conservative bandwagon, he knows two things about leader John Cummins: “He’s not Adrian Dix and he’s not Christy Clark.” It’s been more 21 years since Gordon Wilson reshaped B.C. politics and launched the modern-day B.C. Liberal Party with a single quip in a leaders’ debate between a bickering Rita Johnston and Mike Harcourt. Cummins has about a year to show he’s earned his rising poll numbers, and to refute the conventional wisdom that he’s

BC Views

Tom Fletcher the best friend the NDP has had since Wilson put them in power and later joined them. So let’s get to know Cummins a bit better. He’s 70, and has an 18year record as a ReformAlliance-Conservative MP. His Ottawa days are mainly remembered for battling treaties and aboriginal-only fisheries, and for being the first Reform MP to reverse himself and take the MP pension. That pension pays him about $100,000 a year as he tries to build a second political career in B.C.

Another legacy of Cummins’ federal record is his support for the harmonized sales tax. As he hastens to clarify, he supported Conservative legislation to enter into HST deals with any province, which Ontario and B.C. subsequently did. Cummins said B.C. could have brought in the HST at a lower rate to reflect its broader reach, as Atlantic provinces did. But they tried to make it a “tax grab” and now they’ve “poisoned the well” for many years. “We’re going to have to pay the price I guess, in the sense that where it has been introduced, it has been shown to have grown business,” Cummins said. “Think tanks on both the left and the right have come to that conclusion.” To me this beats the NDP’s crude coffeeshop populism that simply ignores HST benefits for small business and

the poor. Speaking of crude, Cummins further distinguishes himself from the B.C. Liberals by endorsing the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline to Kitimat.

‘‘

CUMMINS SAID B.C. COULD HAVE BROUGHT IN THE HST AT A LOWER RATE TO REFLECT ITS BROADER REACH.

He applauds the federal government for moving to place limits on submissions to federal environment hearings, citing the thousands of Internet sign-ups that have clogged the Northern Gateway hearings. His record on aboriginal issues suggests he has little sympathy for territorial objections from First Nations, those

with treaties or those without. The April 19 by-elections in Port MoodyCoquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope offer a chance for the B.C. Conservatives to present policy alternatives. So far they’re against gas taxes, especially the carbon tax, against a second Metro Vancouver garbage incinerator, and in favour of fixing the “catch and release” justice system. These are the slogans that stand in for actual policies needed to govern. Cummins will be going door to door in the by-elections, especially in Chilliwack-Hope, where he believes his upstart party has a real shot at winning. He offers a telling anecdote about the last time he was door-knocking in Port Moody, the premier’s former homeSEE FLTCHER A5

Youth art on show at LCAG KATIE BRENNAN CONTRIBUTED

Since she began her practicum at the Lake Country Art Gallery this past September, fourth year UBC Okanagan bachelor of fine arts student Heather Leier became more aware of how close the Lake Country Art Gallery is to George Elliott Secondary. “People kept mentioning to me that we’re right across the street from the high school and, ‘What do we do to get kids in the door?’” This inspired Leier, a natural self-starter, to create the Lake Country Youth Art Project, for which she wrote a successful grant application to the United Way, which secured some funding for this initiative. The project began with Leier contacting George Elliott art teacher Angela Hansen to talk about what kind relationship the gallery and school could create to best serve the students. “We decided on doing

something for the older students, Grades 11 and 12”, says Leier. “There are lots of opportunities for students to become more involved in sports or band or theatre. “In art, there isn’t much beyond what happens in the classroom and sometimes going to a gallery to have a look

with the books being our found objects. We played with drawing in books, cutting them up, making them into sculptures. We’re also thinking about how these as pieces can become part of an art installation.” Through brainstorming sessions with the students about what kind of projects they would like to pursue––the dropin sessions are all learner-focused––Leier has discovered just how diverse the students’ interests are. “One night, they just wanted to do still life drawing. I was really surprised, but they really wanted to do it. They wanted some practise at it. “They would also like to do some life drawing hopefully.” For some of these students, this is likely the most interaction they’ve had with art in a long time. Some haven’t been in a gallery since they visited on an elementary field trip. The Lake Country Youth Art Project has the students working in the gallery, in amongst the exhibitions, which has led them to consider the work hanging on the walls in a different light.

I’ll keep doing it as long as it is possible. “And then maybe down the road, they can become the leaders, when I have to step out and it can continue to grow on its own,” she said.”

“Waiting for the Parade” by John Murrell is continuing its run at the Creekside Theatre. The play is a perennial favourite for Canadian audiences as it features the lives of five women as they struggle to keep the home fires burning while their men are away during World War II. “This is a story about love, and war, and how heartache is balanced with humour and endurance,” said Aliske Webb, the play’s director. “It’s seen through the eyes of five very strong women and rings as true today as it did in past generations.” The play, which started last weekend, wraps up this weekend with a 7:30 p.m. performance April 13, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. performances April 14, and a 2 p.m. matinee on April 15. Tickets are $20 or $60 for a group of four. Playhouse 25 is a newly formed theatre co-op in Kelowna and this is it inaugural production. It will also be entered into the Theatre BC’s Ozone Festival in May this year taking place in Armstrong.

There’s plenty for those with green thumbs to do in the garden at this time of year

T

his cool weather is keeping some gardeners from doing some important early season purchasing. Even though the weather is not as comfortable as it could be, there are things that should be done cool weather or not. The garden centres are now stocked up on Dahlia roots, begonia tubers, lily bulbs, Walla Walla onions, garlic and of course seeds. Some of these things will deteriorate on the shelf if they are not purchased early and planted in the ground. Lily bulbs in particular should be purchased and planted right away. The best time and one could argue the right time to plant lily bulbs is in Oc-

Gardening

Don Burnett tober however most garden centres do not include them in their fall program because the mainstream wholesalers cannot get them ready for market in time. Instead they are processed in the fall and stored over winter in a controlled environment for distribution in the spring. The problem is

when they come out of the controlled environment, the deterioration begins immediately so the sooner they are purchased and planted the better. Lilies do very well here in the Okanagan especially the Asiatic varieties. In fact an Asiatic lily bulb planted this season will bloom year after year and even multiply for you. The Oriental varieties such as Stargazer are a

bit more finicky to grow. They need an acid environment and for the most part we have the opposite conditions. Applying some Tiger 90 granulated sulphur each year will do the trick to acidify the soil. Another one you want to get in early is Walla Walla onions. After all the plants you see in the garden centres have just been dug out of a field this spring after having been planted in Au-

gust of last year by seed. The faster they get back in the ground the better. Walla Walla Spanish onions have been a favourite summer barbeque compliment forever however they are not good keepers so plant accordingly. If you wish to have some winter keepers as well then plant some Stuttgart onion sets which are also at the garden centres now. As far as seeds go

there are many that can be planted this early. Peas, of course, can go in right away, and carrots as well. Also all the cold crops and salad greens should be sown early and this should be repeated each month right through the season to have fresh produce coming on all the time. One good thing to remember though never do your shopping for garden seeds on an empty stomach or you are

bound to over buy. Those pictures of juicy vegetables are just too tempting when you’re hungry. Also a tip for men— never plant more garden than your wife will look after. I have seen far too often guys planting a huge garden and then leaving it to look after itself while they pursue other more recreational spring and summer activities like golf.

pring is here, the park gates are open. Soccer and baseball players are out on the fields and tennis players on the courts. Our clinic becomes busy this time of year as our community becomes more active and the risk for injuries increases. Many of the injuries we see can be prevented, or at least less severe,

simply by being more educated about the most effective methods for warming up and cooling down before and after your activity. You may be aware of the longstanding debate on stretching. In fact, there is some research that implies that static stretching before an athletic performance may actually be detri-

mental and play no role in decreasing risk of injury. However, we cannot assume that just because static stretching prior to an athletic event may not be recommended, doesn’t mean that static or other types of stretching aren’t beneficial at other times for other reasons; whether you are an athlete or not. Let’s explore what flexibility and stretching are really all about; and if, when, and why we should stretch. Flexibility is the abil-

ity to move a joint smoothly, without injury or damage, through its complete range of motion. Many components can influence flexibility such as muscle lengths, ligaments, fascia, the joint itself, and even skin. We will be exploring the muscular component. When a muscle is shortened or tight, your joint will be less able, or unable, to complete its full movement. So if you quickly kicked a soccer ball,

it may result in a muscle strain or injury if the hamstring muscles at the back of the thigh are tight. However, if the muscles were ‘flexible’ enough, they would have been able to withstand that range of movement without any tear or injury. Studies have shown that increasing joint range of motion by increasing muscle flexibility by stretching does indeed reduce the risk of injury. Improved flexibility of certain muscle groups can also improve postural alignment and body mechanics, therefore reduce incidences of repetitive strain injuries and other conditions such as back, neck or shoulder pain. So, if we know flexibility and stretching are beneficial, why are many experts questioning it? Actually, they are not saying that stretching isn’t beneficial, but rather, that certain types of stretching are better than others depending on when they are performed. There are many different types of stretching, but we will discuss two main types of stretching, static and dynamic. Dynamic stretching is when muscle action produces active movement to result in a stretch, such as with gradually deepening walking lunges or increasing amplitude of arm circles. Static stretching is when muscle groups are placed and held for approximately 30 seconds in a lengthened position, and no movement occurs. There are several more subcategories of effective stretching methods within these main categories that your physiotherapist may introduce to you, but for simplicity

we’ll stop here. Research shows that dynamic stretching is preferred over static stretching prior to an athletic event (to improve performance and decrease risk of injury during performance). v Research also shows that static stretching is instrumental in increasing overall joint range of motion, therefore decreasing risk of injury, and is most safe and beneficial when performed when muscles are warm, typically after the activity. Therefore, the most effective warm up routines should involve actively warming up the large muscle groups by gradually increasing the speed and amplitude of the activity (deep lunges, arm and leg circles, light running drills, jumping jacks, etc). If you are experiencing a particularly tight area, take time to perform a prolonged static stretch to those muscles once you are warm. Post-activity, it is highly recommended to perform prolonged static stretches to help improve and maintain muscle lengths to decrease risk of injury. Your physiotherapist can show you the stretches that are most safe, effective, and specific to your activity. Maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle including regular stretching, strengthening, a healthy diet, and stress management are often overlooked, but all very valuable, for injury prevention.

Aircraft maintenance trade offering jobs Bruce Fossen, a 46year-old cattle rancher from Rock Creek, is one of 16 students taking part in Okanagan College’s inaugural class of aircraft maintenance engineer structures (AME S) program. Fossen said a passion for aviation and the convenience of training in the Okanagan led him to the program. “I grew up with airplanes, both my father and brother are pilots, and I’ve always had a strong interest in the mechanical side of things,� said Fossen. “I love the idea of taking a flat piece of metal and turning it into something as elegant as an airplane. “When I toured the facility at Kelowna Flightcraft I saw a Canadian Forces Twin Otter that had some damage to its nose gear. Just the other day I watched as it

was ground-tested and it was amazing to see the transformation.� Okanagan College launched the program in February at its Aerospace facility located at the Kelowna airport. The addition of the AME S program positions Okanagan College as the region’s largest provider of aviation training. Developed in partnership with industry input from Kelowna Flightcraft and with significant support from BCIT, the 37-week AME S program positions graduates for immediate entry into the field of aviation. “We took a great deal of care in ensuring the curriculum and training for this program were inkeeping with the current industry standards and had a significant amount of help from our partners at Flightcraft and BCIT,� said John Haller,

dean of trades and apprenticeship at Okanagan College. Structures engineers focus their efforts on maintaining and repairing the exterior elements of aircraft of all kinds. The work is both technical and artful. “There is a fairly significant difference between those who work on mechanical systems and the people who are licensed in structures,� explained Murray Palmer, AME S instructor at Okanagan College. “If you use the automotive industry as a comparator, the structures engineers would be the equivalent of those who work in automotive collision repair—they deal with all of the outer elements: the fuselage, wings, tail and skin.� Fossen plans on using his newfound skills and credential to work on aircraft in the Okanagan—

apprenticing at Kelowna Flightcraft would be his dream job. Flightcraft’s director of human resources, Grant Stevens, played an instrumental role in offering advice on behalf of the industry through the development phases of the program. He said that despite the shut down of Aveos Fleet Performance Inc., opportunities for AME S graduates are plentiful. “There’s really never been a better time to be involved in aircraft maintenance,� said Stevens. “A significant number of graduates of Okanagan College’s AME S program will be employed in the region, which hasn’t been impacted by the layoffs in any way. Looking across North America, the bottom line is there is still the same number of aircraft flying today as there was a few weeks ago.�

Oyama Traditional School

APRIL 2012

Literacy takes on a new twist at OTS BY MR. ROSS HETT, PRINCIPAL Literacy is a key focus at Oyama Traditional School, and we are using a unique model to improve student achievement on District Literacy Assessments. On March 27th, the Primary Teaching Team along with Mr. Banting, our Learning Assistance teacher, and Mrs. Murdain, collaborated with a District Literacy specialist in order to examine

various assessment data from the Early Learning ProďŹ le, and then arrange students in ďŹ ve speciďŹ c learning groupings so that intensive daily instruction can be delivered over the next several weeks tailored to students’ ability levels. Just a few short days later, on April 4th, the Intermediate teachers collaborated to evaluate their students’ ďŹ nal writing projects (from an intensive eight-week period

of writing instruction taught to multigrade groups during term 2) and planned on where to focus next. The Intermediate students made signiďŹ cant gains in their ability to organize their writing and express themselves using developed ideas during the eight week session. This collaborative model of support is a research-based best practice and I am excited to see that the very gifted teachers

here (both at the Primary and Intermediate levels) are taking a lead within the district with this model of instructional delivery. Literacy is of crucial importance for our students’ futures, and using assessment data to plan targeted instruction based on students’ individual ability levels and needs is going to help them maximize their achievement and academic growth each year.

The varied roles of leadership at OTS Student Leadership

BY DANIKA Five Oyama Traditional School students went to We Day last October, and it was very fun. We saw Hedley, ClassiďŹ ed and Down with Webster perform. When we were there, we heard some very amazing speakers like Craig and mark Kielburger. They spoke about how they started Free The Children. Also, we heard Spencer West talk about life growing up with only half his body. It was very inspiring. We Day was an experience I will never forget. My favourite performance was

The Partner, side portrait by Taylor, grade 7.

Hedley and the most inspirational speaker was Spencer West. Note: since returning from We Day the ďŹ ve We Day student leaders have made several conference calls with Free the Children personnel in Vancouver, planned and organized fundraisers for local charities as well as Haitian relief, and have also arranged for two members of Free the Children to travel to our school in the Okanagan to present on the organization to a school assembly.

House Team Leadership BY BRIDGET The House Team student leadership at Oyama Traditional School is deďŹ nitely a big part of school spirit. Every Friday students from two grades will come and participate in a school activity in the gym based on what the House Team leaders decide who organize it all. All of the House Team captains have their own house team colour red, yellow, blue, and green. All of the teams are named in Japanese writing. Every student is assigned to their own team and every month there is a draw to see which

students gets a prize for earning a house point. Every student must show positive behaviour in order to get a house point and put their name in for the draw. Also every month, House Team captains must tally the points that each house has earned. At the end of every term Mr. Hett, the Principal, takes a plaque and gets the house team name engraved in on it and puts it in a display case for the whole school to look at. Oyama Traditional School deďŹ nitely has a lot of school spirit.
