Likely Road crash fatal

VOL. 82. No. 31

Vaisakhi celebrated Greg Sabatino photo

The Gurdwara Western Singh Sabha on Pine Avenue featured Vaisakhi celebrations this past Saturday and Sunday at the local temple. Here (from left) Dalraj Veer, 8, Joslyn Mann, 11, Diya Rai, 7 and Manveer Ranu, 10, enjoy some refreshments during lunch time. The main cultural reason to celebrate Vaisakhi is for the selling and success of crops, and the main religious significance is the birth of the Khalsa, which is the collective body of all baptized Sikhs.

A single-vehicle crash on Likely Road left one person dead Friday night. At around 8 p.m. the Williams Lake RCMP Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services responded to the crash, west of Big Lake. An older model pick up truck left the roadway and entered a ditch, rolled over and ejected the driver and the passenger from the vehicle. The female driver was deceased at the scene and a male passenger was transported to Cariboo Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The RCMP, in a news release, says neither occupants appeared to be wearing seat belts. BC Ambulance, Central Cariboo Search and Rescue Auto Extrication and Big Lake Fire Department also attended the scene. The Cariboo Chilcotin Traffic Services Unit is working in conjunction with the BC Coroners Service to determine the cause of the crash.

Taseko holds New Prosperity open houses

SPORTS A8 Bowl for Kids Sake raises $25K.

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

COMMUNITY A11 Cariboo Festival continues.

Around 100 people attended the open house hosted by Taseko Mines Ltd. on Monday afternoon at the Gibraltar Room. Taseko’s vice president of corporate affairs Brian Battison shared two short video presentations on the New Prosperity and Gibraltar Mine projects, and then invited the public to speak one on one with staff members of Taseko. Before Battison began his presentation, half a dozen local First Nations gathered inside the entrance way to drum and sing a traditional song. Once the song was completed, they came into the room to listen to the presentation. During his short presentation, Battison said the mine presents an economical impact that will last for 22 years.

Weather outlook: Sunny today and tomorrow and the next day.

Taseko environmental technician Ashley Overton chats with John Mansell and Glenn Lambe during the Monday afternoon open house Taseko held at the Gibraltar room. “This investment, along with the benefit that will flow from it, can be accomplished without significant risk to the environment and with the very highest standards of mine development being practiced in the world,” Battison said, adding he

hopes the project will receive the approval it deserves. After the presentation, Glenn Lambe and John Massell both said even though it won’t affect them, they hope the mine goes through for the region’s economy.

On the other hand, Tl’esqox Chief Francis Laceese said he didn’t hear his concerns alleviated in the presentation — predominantly he’s worried about high winds at the proposed mine site that will blow tailings dust around the area that will impact terrain and local wildlife. Taseko’s environmental technician Ashley Overton worked for seven years at Gibraltar, before working on the New Prosperity project, and confirmed wind has been a big factor at Gibraltar. “There is a real dust problem there,” she said. At New Prosperity she said they will have to do early mitigation work, such as grass seeding right away. Roger William of the Xeni Gwet’in said he still does not believe that Fish Lake can be saved.

This week at THE WIDER WORLD

Fire started in Boitanio Park

Your Preschooler and… the Wider World

Preschool children are naturally curious about the world - about where they live and the people around them. Supporting a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world and the people in it is important to your preschool child. It helps them to become good citizens. Your own curiosity, more than your knowledge, will encourage your child’s interest in the wider world. Preschoolers enjoy helping in day-to-day activities of their families. For example, by including opportunities to assist with household chores they see how they are a valuable contributor in their family. As children are provided opportunities to care for their environments (e.g. gardening, cleaning, recycling, water conservation, etc.) they will develop an understanding of how their own actions may affect nature and the planet. Talk to your child about different ways they can take care of the planet. During the preschool years, children start to develop an understanding of rules and behaviours. Help your child to begin understanding fairness to themselves and others through your conversation with them and by your example.

Williams Lake firefighters tend to a small fire in Boitanio Park shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday. Fire chief Randy Isfeld said someone reported seeing two people fleeing the area after the fire started.

B.C. is very culturally diverse – some families are new to B.C., while other families have lived here for many generations, including a rich history of Aboriginal people. Your preschool child will benefit from opportunities to learn about their own heritage and culture and the culture of others.

First Ave. fire deliberately set Early Monday the Williams Lake RCMP responded to a suspicious fire outside a residential building at 398 First Ave. North. Residents called the Williams Lake Fire

Department after they heard noises and discovered the side of the building was on fire. When crews attended they quickly extinguished the fire. There were no in-

juries, damage to the building was minor, and the residences are still inhabitable. The fire was deliberately set, has been deemed an arson, and it is believed the resi-

dence was intentionally targeted and was not a random act, the RCMP says. Anyone who may have observed people running in the area of First Avenue and Com-

er Street around 2 a.m. on April 16, or anyone with any information about the incident, is urged to contact the detachment at 250392-6211 or call Crime Stoppers.

years.” Overton added if Taseko wanted to extend the mine beyond 20 years, it would have to go through another environ-

mental assessment. A second open house was held in the evening and then moves on to 100 Mile House today (Tuesday).

Plan for 20 years, not 33: Battison Continued From Page A1 “In 2008 they were talking about a 13-year addition. There’s a 20year plan and then there’s a 13-year addition that will have to go under Fish Lake. The deposit does not go under the lake, but to get down there they will have to go out closer toward the lake,” William said. A proper environ-

mental assessment would look at the 33-year mine, he added, suggesting the present project proposal does not present the full picture. “Our people are saying once you get in, five years, 10 years into the mine, then you’re going to think about the 13year addition and then you might have an easier argument to destroy the lake. In my mind that

lake is going to have to be destroyed; that’s the only way they could do it,” William said. Responding, Battison said the present proposal is for a 20-year mine and an open pit that will eventually extend to within 500 metres of the lake. If the mine were to go to 33 years, the pit would extend to the lake, Battison said, but insisted “this proposal is for 20

Try some of these with your preschooler: To encourage care of the earth: 1. Go for neighbourhood nature walks; take turns pointing out interesting things to each other such as birds, cloud formations, trees, and green spaces. 2. Preschoolers love to collect things. Bring along a container when you go outdoors so your child can collect treasures along the way – seeds, leaves, rocks – and bring them home to examine. 3. At the grocery store, help your child point out items that can be recycled (like cans or cardboard boxes) and show items that are made of recycled materials (like paper products). Help them make artwork and crafts using recycled materials. Actively recycle at home. 4. Encourage help with household chores if your child is interested. Tearing lettuce, folding clothes, making beds and setting the table may be work for you, but these tasks can be fun for your preschooler — and will set patterns for responsible behaviour as they grow up. 5. Help your children understand where food comes from. Show them food being grown in neighbourhood gardens or at local farms, orchards, or greenhouses. To encourage an understanding of diversity: 1. Attend a variety of community events that are taking place near your home. 2. When talking about diversity, point out human similarities first, then help your child appreciate people’s differences. You could say, “everybody needs food, shelter and love, but people have different ways of doing things. Our family’s way is just one way.” 3. Encourage your child to consider other’s feelings. You could ask your child, “what do you think it would feel like if other children would not let you play?” To encourage understanding of culture: 1. Explore your child’s own culture through stories and song, food and celebration. 2. Find an opportunity to introduce and appreciate other cultures. You could visit the library and find and read books about other cultures and cultural celebrations or listen to music from different cultures: French, Latin, Indian raga, Aboriginal drumming, etc. Local libraries have a great selection of multi-cultural music.

Gov’t to spend $200M on Cariboo Connector DeLynda Pilon Prince George Free Press Phase two of the Cariboo Connector expansion is ready to go forward, with the province set to four-lane 30 kilometres more of highway between Prince George and Cache Creek, beginning this summer. Premier Christy Clark made the announcement during her visit to Prince George on Friday, stopping at the Yellowhead Road and Bridge maintenance yard on the Hart, along with several other dignitaries including Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Blair Lekstrom, following a morning that included a cabinet meeting since so many members of the Liberal caucus were in Prince George. Clark likened the provincial government’s B.C. Jobs Plan to a body. The heart of the plan is families, the lungs is the economy and the arteries are the province’s highways. “We know how important they are to livelihoods,” she said. So the government has committed $200 million over the next five years for phase two of the Cariboo Connector project, part of the $700 million also committed over the next five years, to increase capacity on provincial highways and railways. Ensuring goods get to market and stimulating A3

the economy will mean jobs for residents for generations, she said. “We want them for our kids. We want them for our grand-kids. We want to have jobs for a long time,” she said. Prince George — Mackenzie MLA Pat Bell, formerly a professional driver, added the changes would not only help get goods to market but further improve the safety of the roads, which, he said, were challenging in the 1990s. Kevin Higgins, president of Yellowhead Road and Bridge, and representing the B.C. Road Builders and Heavy Construction Association, said the announcement translates to 1,000 jobs during the construction stage of the project. He agreed that the improvements will make for safer roads and easier transport of goods, leading to a thriving economy. “Our ancestors got it, we get it and I’m pleased to say this government gets it too. B.C. is all about transportation,” he said. The premier said the plan is to start four-laning the piece from the Old Cariboo Highway to Sintich Rd. this year. Approximately $28 million of the work will take place in the Cariboo-Chilcotin, including four-laning the highway between Carson Drive to Fox Mountain Road.

Telus to invest $4.5M in lakecity Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer TELUS is investing $4.5 million in Williams Lake in 2012 to further expand and enhance wireless and wireline networks in the city and to bring advanced wireless and wireline broadband to the nearby rural communities of Canoe Creek and Beaver Valley. “We did a similar investment last year and

are continuing this year. It’s part of a $3 billion investment over three years across B.C.” says Shawn Hall of TELUS media relations. In Williams Lake customers can expect to see faster Internet speeds in more neighbourhoods, more wireless capacity, and more wireless coverage because more antennas are being added to existing sites and new wireless sites are being added.

“We are increasing capacity to keep up with explosive demand for wireless broadband services,” Hall says and explains the upgrade includes miles and miles of additional fibre optic cable being installed in the city. The number of people using Smart Phones from TELUS has almost doubled in the last year and Williams Lake is keeping up to that trend.

To make sure the company is one step ahead of that trend, it is adding the additional capacity. The work in rural communities, Hall suggests, will help bridge the digital divide more and more in 2012, building on the work already completed in previous years. “These are big projects. On average it costs us about $650,000 to connect one remote

community. It requires a lot of engineering work and a lot of ingenuity. Year after year we’re connecting more and more remote communities,” Hall says. There won’t be any interruption of existing service; all people might notice is an increase in Internet speed. There are 70 TELUS employees serving the Williams Lake area, mostly technical staff, says Hall.

More ‘inappropriate touching’ cases reported The Williams Lake RCMP are investigating three reports of inappropriate touching by a male in residential areas in the vicinity of Western Avenue, Pigeon Avenue and Boundary Street in Williams Lake. The first incident took place on April 9, at about 6 p.m. on Western Avenue. The offender, while walking past an adult female, inappropriately touched her.

The offender was described as a Caucasian male approximately 16 years of age. He has shoulder length, black, curly hair and was wearing white shoes, blue jeans and a blue T-shirt. He was walking two dogs at the time, a yellow and brown puppy and a small breed dog similar in appearance to a husky. On April 11, between noon and 1 p.m. in the vicinity of Pigeon Av-

enue and Boundary Street, two more incidents of inappropriate sexual touching took place involving two adult females. In this case, the offender was described by one victim as Caucasian and by the other victim as possibly being non-white but with a fair complexion. The suspect is between 16 and 18 years of age, with black, straight, ear-length hair. A distinctive fea-

ture of the suspect in one of these incidents is that he had braces on his teeth. A clothing description for the offender suggests that he was wearing a black and white windbreakertype jacket, black pants and black skater-type running shoes. The police investigation into these incidents is ongoing to identify the suspect and determine if these incidents are related.

The police are encouraging everyone to be aware of their surroundings and to call the police should they witness any suspicious activities. Anyone who has witnessed these events or can provide information pertaining to these investigations is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-3926211 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222TIPS (8477).

Newcomers to Williams Lake, Sue Wolf (centre) and her daughter Amely, enjoyed a visit with author Verena Berger after she had signed a copy of her book, Kool-Aid & Cariboo Stew for the family. They were attending the Authors Fair hosted at the Tourism Discovery Centre on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There were more than a dozen local authors there with their books.

WLIB land process underway Williams Lake Indian Band Chief Ann Louie was in Ottawa Friday attending the Adhesion Signing Ceremony for the First Nations Land Management Initiative. The ceremony was organized and co-ordinated by the Lands Advisory Board and will be overseen by John Duncan, minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, according to a news release from the band. On Jan. 18 the federal government announced that 18 First Nations from across Canada, including eight from B.C., would begin a process to opt out of the 34 land-related sections of the Indian Act and assume greater control over the reserve land

and resources through the First Nations Land Management Initiative. WLIB is one of those First Nations. “The Adhesions Signing Ceremony marks the first step in the implementation of the First Nations Land Management Initiative,” Louie says. “We’re excited to get this process started. Now the work will really begin.” She says the band will develop a work plan and will soon turn to the task of drafting the Land Code, which will set out the rules for the management of the band’s lands. “At the end of the day, our community will be required to approve those rules.” According to the re-

lease, a 2009 KPMG study shows that First Nations with direct control over their reserve lands and resources under the First Nations Land Management Initiative are making decisions at the speed of business and that economic development is much greater in comparison to those whose lands are administered by the government under the Indian Act. The release adds that many of the operational FNLMI First Nations reported a 40 per cent increase in new business overall by band members and 45 per cent increase into different types of businesses, including suppliers and spin-off businesses.

WLIB signs agreement with Horsefly exploration company The Williams Lake Indian Band announced Thursday that it has entered into an agreement with Gold Fields Horsefly Exploration Corporation with respect to exploration activities at the 68,000 hectare Woodjam property near Horsefly. “We’re extremely pleased to conclude this agreement with Gold Fields,” says WLIB Chief Ann Louie. “The Woodjam claims cover a huge part of WLIB’s traditional territory of critical significance to our people and it is good to be building a relationship with one of the major companies conduct-

ing exploration in that area.” TheWLIB/Gold Fields agreement addresses a variety of issues, ranging from communications, permit processes and environmental management, through to employment and contracting opportunities and community investment. The agreement envisions the possibility of a more comprehensive arrangement between WLIB and Gold Fields should the Woodjam project proceed through to the construction of a mine. “We understand that economic activity is going to occur within our

traditional territory, and our desire is to be involved in that development from the outset, so we know it is occurring in a manner which is environmentally responsible, respects the history and traditions of our people, and offers some economic opportunity for our members,” Louie says. “We credit Gold Fields for being proactive, and for entering into an arrangement with us before their project became too advanced. This is the type of commitment to First Nations rights and First Nations issues that we need to see more of in

the mineral exploration industry.” In March 2011, WLIB announced the signing of a protocol agreement with Spanish Mountain Gold, setting out the basis for a relationship between the parties with respect to the proposed development at Spanish Lake. In January 2012, WLIB announced that is had concluded a participation agreement with Mount Polley Mining Corporation to resolve issues in relation to Mount Polley Mine, which has been operating in WLIB’s traditional territory since 1997.

pril 15 was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. April 22 is Earth Day. So what? Everyone knows the story of the Titanic. It was equipped with all the latest technological bells and whistles and it was believed to be unsinkable. The owners were so sure the ship was invincible they didn’t provide enough lifeboats and the crew wasn’t well prepared for an emergency. A l though French he was Connection warned of iceDiana French bergs in the area, the captain was so confident in the ship that he went at full speed. When an iceberg got in the way, he could neither stop the ship nor turn in time. The mighty Titanic smacked into the iceberg and sunk, taking 2,200 people with it. It has been learned since that neither the ship nor the technology was all it was cracked up to be. What has this to do with Earth Day? Well, a growing number of people believe our politicians and big businesses are, like the Titanic, ignoring the “iceberg� of climate change. They say too many of the people who are making money from our current system are in positions of powers and they won’t let go because they believe technology will overcome nature, (human error too?). So even if there is an iceberg out there, it can’t sink us. Well, there is more evidence that the climate is changing than there is that it is not. Earth Day is a good time to consider our position. When the Titanic went down, first-class men, who were praised for letting steerage women and children go first in the lifeboats, actually survived at a higher rate than the third-class children. So, if we want to take our chances on hitting the iceberg, fine, but let’s be sure we have enough lifeboats (arable land and water) for everyone, including those of us in steerage.

Our Viewpoint

Open house informative The Tribune attended the New Prosperity gold-copper project open house at the Gibraltar Room Monday afternoon (another one was held later in the evening). The open house was not only informative but also allowed people to ask specific questions of Taseko Mines Ltd.’s staff. We completely respect the opinions of others who are either for or against this project, but note there is a difference between fact and opinion. From a journalism perspective, it can be very frustrating when the facts are ignored, misinterpreted, or downright twisted. We imagine it is frustrating for others, too. That is why it was so great to see and hear all of the information provided at the open houses yesterday. We hope that they will help quell at least some of the misconceptions of the project.

And yes, the open houses were open to anyone who wanted to attend, opponents of the mine included. A comment was recently made on our website that it shouldn’t be called an open house when one party is involved and has no intentions to discuss the negative impacts or invite any parties who are against the mine to speak with company representatives. We would argue that the whole community had an opportunity to be involved — the afternoon open house was quite open and informal, anyone could attend either session, and anyone could discuss impacts, positive or negative, with Taseko staff. Kudos to Taseko for holding the open houses, which continue in 100 Mile House today. Those who missed them will still have an opportunity to attend the environmental review panel hearings expected to be held later this year.

Vo l unteers MLA across the province Musings selflessly Donna Barnett donate their time and money to create positive change in all areas of our communities. They give their time and energy to help others, and at the same time set an example of leadership and community engagement for their peers.   On April 25, a ceremony will be held at Government House in Victoria to recognize the recipients of this year’s B.C. Community Achievement Awards. The 34 recipients of this award are individuals who have made outstanding contributions in any area of volunteerism or work in the community. One of these individuals is Dave Dickson of Williams Lake. Dickson is the safer communities co-ordinator with the Williams Lake RCMP and the director of the Williams Lake Emergency Social Services team. As the safer communities co-ordinator, Dickson has been instrumental in initiating and expanding programs that have reduced crime and increased the safety of our community. He has spearheaded community policing programs such as Business Watch, Downtown Closed Circuit Television, and Operation Red Nose, and he continues to encourage volunteerism through Citizens on Patrol and the Positive Ticketing program, which rewards youth for positive community activity. As director for the ESS team, Dickson works with local volunteers who provide basic services and supplies for individuals and families who have been evacuated from their homes in emergency situations. The ESS team also provides support to large scale search and rescue activities. Dickson is a valuable member of our community, and I am happy to see him receive the recognition he deserves. He is described as a dedicated individual whose work ethic, professionalism, and passion are unrivaled. He sets an outstanding example for his peers, the people he works and volunteers with, and the rest of our community. Volunteerism creates stronger and healthier families and communities, and I hope that we all take the time to recognize and appreciate the hard work of the volunteers in Williams Lake and across B.C.

I am sorry Future social needs will require funding for my actions Editor:

Editor: To the community of Williams Lake and Town Taxi: It is with my utmost regret that I write this letter. There is no excuse for my actions that night. My behaviour was absolutely horrible. I know that there is no way for me to undo what happened, but I hope that this letter can help mend the situation. It goes without saying that drinking until the point of blacking out is an incredibly irresponsible thing to do, and this experience has left me with a new understanding of the word irresponsible. Since that night, I have not drank to the point of intoxication. Drinking now only brings back the disappointment in me that I felt, and still feel, about the actions of that night. One letter cannot express how sorry I feel, but it is the first step of many in making sure nothing like this ever happens again. I hope that my actions can serve as a learning experience for others who read this. I am willing to do anything in an attempt to make things right for Town Taxi and the community of Williams Lake.

Let’s not kid ourselves — we need to have the infrastructure and industry in place that will ensure that we can look forward to a future of prosperity, not

poverty. In no way is this unattainable. We can protect the Earth and develop our resources, responsibly. There are really no options if we want to maintain our standard of living or raise it. Bill Carruthers, Share the Cariboo-Chilcotin Resources Society

MLA Barnett should take stand against HST Editor: Dear Mrs. Donna Barnett: Let’s see ‌ September 2009 there were protests against the implementing of the HST. In the spring of 2010 Mrs. Barnett received 4,000 signatures in the legislature in protest to the HST. And

then Mrs. Barnett voted in favour of Bill 9 to stop debate on the HST. Then in the summer of 2010 we collected 9,000 signatures to force a referendum on the HST. In the fall of 2010 the province voted to get rid of the HST. Mrs. Barnett, I believe that the reason you would not take a stand against the HST

when everyone else wanted it gone is because you did not want to go against your own political party’s position. You chose them over your own constituency. A broken promise I might add. The BC Liberal party is now in the process of imploding. You have nothing left to lose! Now would you

please take a public stand against the HST and tell your fellow Liberal colleagues that it is time to get rid of the hated tax and save yourself some face in the process. And tell them to quit stalling on its removal. We want it gone now! Eric Freeston William Lake

Bureaucracy a problem in school classrooms Editor: Teacher job action could be attributed to many concerns but some are prominent because of the simple inaction of using a current maintenance schedule. Students are subject to our indulgences of politics, rhetoric, and instructed daycare, overlooking opportunity, skill and challenge. Our children are enriched with net zero, a fair deal and a hydra of ascending administrators, not to mention ministers.

Governments will need a positive cash inflow. Governments are already scrambling to fund a properly functioning system, but it will get worse without new revenue streams from mega resource projects. In the present and the future we will need jobs, and our various levels of government will

Any employee will try to make as much income as possible, and good employees will be as productive as possible. There are organizations in the private as well as public sector that use continuing education and increase flexibility with a reward of higher pay and skills excellence for their staff. Through the seniority system, there are instructors bumped into subjects in which they have little experience and where there is no supporting accredited material

available for pro-D days. Demands for a dynamic system without resource and responsibility without opportunity is a recurring political theme. Problems with the educational system are apparent when a child is obliged to take courses above the requirements to graduate so that a school can receive more money for full-time students. Possibly this could contribute to class size, where it is not homework nor grades that become the challenge, but bureaucracy.

Students recognize institutional intransigence no matter how well the rhetoric is documented. Demands brought into bargaining do not seem to be addressing the broken pipes in the systems even though everyone knows it starts at the top and flows downhill. An act of preventive maintenance could help, preferably before it backs up die to inadequate venting by the general population. Gregg Pritchard Williams Lake

A huge bouquet of roses to the following local businesses that so generously donated to Williams Lake Dry Grad through the BC Liquor Store chocolate sales. Thank you to Pioneer Log Homes, Comer Station Pub, James Western Star, Marshalls General Store, Joey’s Grill and Mica (Huston) Agencies and all of our customers who purchased chocolates or just donated to the cause. To Denice, the LDB clerk who was so dedicated to the chocolate sales, and Holly, who did up the beautiful basket we raffled off, thank you. Denice came in second place for highest chocolate sales and Williams Lake took eight place overall out of just under 200 liquor stores. Yeah, Williams Lake, you did it

The event’s top fundraiser, who won an exclusive stay at the Echo Valley Ranch and Spa, was Trish Moore. The second-highest fundraiser was Luigi Mandarino, who won a bed in a bag donated by The Brick, and a colour consultation, courtesy of Al-

terior Motives Design and Staging. Third-place in the fundraising went to Shandi Warkentin, who won a $100 gift certificate courtesy of Excelsior Jewellers.

Best dressed team: Save On Foods — who won an appetizer platter and a jug of beverages from Boston Pizza. Draw prize: Barton Insurance — Team Barton also won an appetizer platter, courtesy of Boston Pizza. Individuals who raised more than $100 were entered into a draw, and won multiple prizes donated by local businesses.

sports Cariboo United combine to win tourney title The Quesnel Denny’s Strikers, Williams Lake Storm and Prince George Kodiaks joined forces this past Easter weekend to enter a U14 girls team in the Kelowna Icebreaker Soccer Tournament. The team, named Cariboo United, consisted of eight Quesnel players, three Williams Lake players and two Prince George players under the direction of coaches Dave Blagdon, Gilbert Schotel and manager Beth Moore. The team played two games on April 6, the first being a 3-0 victory over the Kel-

owna Eagles. Scoring for Cariboo United were Mitchell Edpath, Maneesha Johal and Christina Grob. During the second game the Abbotsford Tornados came from behind for a 2-1 win after Christina Grob scored the first goal from a free kick early in the second half. The Cariboo United team entered their last round robin game Saturday afternoon in a must-win situation in order to qualify for the gold-medal match on Sunday. They fell behind early when their oppo-

nent, Kamloops, was awarded a penalty shot for a handball. Luck would turn the other way moments later when the Cariboo girls were awarded a penalty shot of their own. However, late in the half they were again trailing 2-1 after Kamloops found the back of the net. During the second half the girls brought new energy to the game and controlled most of the play. They were again awarded a penalty shot and tied the game at two a piece. Despite steady pressure, they

were denied the go ahead goal. The match was settled with a best of five shoot out. After Jadyn Legere, Mitchell Redpath, and Samantha Sameit each scored and keeper Haley Schotel denied four of Kamloops’ attempts, the match was awarded to the Cariboo United. The gold medal match was a rematch with the Abbotsford Tornados. The Tornados took an early lead off a free kick just out side 18 yard box. Jadyn Legere ensured the team went into half time even when she scored off a

corner kick late in the half. During the second half, the defensive team of Morgan Lord, Christina Grob, Keeanna Bautista, Sophia Stoldt, Emily Blagdon and keeper Haley Schotel played a flawless game while midfielders Morgan Moore, Jadyn Legere, Brittany Grob, Samantha Sameit and strikers Maneesha Johal, Melissa Styran, and

Mitchell Redpath put unrelenting pressure on the Tornados. Johal would score the go ahead goal and Sameit sealed the deal with number three. Cariboo United took the Gold medal in the 3-1 victory. “Even though the players were from three different communities they played extremely well together and worked as a

Columneetza students build bright red bookshelves Claire Schreiner Special to The Tribune Bright Red Bookshelves provide an important stimulus to encourage children to read. Children’s books are provided free f o r children and families at various public locations in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy relies on volunteers to build these book shelves. This year, Andrew Hutchinson, a Columneetza wood-work teacher, has some of his older students building two new bookshelves for the program.

This will allow us to start one new Bright Red Bookshelf location here and one in 100 Mile House in the next few weeks. The shelves will be painted their characteristic “fire engine red” by other volunteers. The plan for the shelves was adapted from the website of The Family Reading Partnership of Ithaca, New York. The Bright Red Bookshelves in Williams Lake can be found at Atwood Clinic, Botanio Mall, Cariboo Eye Care Clinic, Ministry of Children and Family Development, Court Services building (second floor), Cariboo Memorial Com-

plex arena and pool, and the Gymnastics Club. We always need more gently used children’s books to keep the bookshelves full. Donations can be left at any of these locations, at elementary schools, Curves, the public library and Heartland Toyota, which is our central collection location. Reading to babies and young children helps them to learn new words and develop an understanding of the world around them. April is Book Drive Month. Help us to promote the habit of life-long reading.

Ranchers work to remain competitive Erin Hitchcock Tribune Staff Writer Local cattlemen are trying to find ways to stay competitive in North American and international markets, which is no easy feat due to issues ranging from carbon tax to countryof-origin labelling. Duncan Barnett, president of the Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association, says the carbon tax makes it difficult to be competitive because it creates an extra cost that Alberta and Washington, for example, don’t have. “We need a regulatory framework that allows us to be competitive,” Barnett says, adding that ranchers aren’t necessarily looking for a subsidy. He says the regional association put forward a resolution, which was endorsed by the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association, asking the government to look at rebates or exemptions from the carbon tax. “The province said no to both of those but they have undertaken a review of the carbon tax.” He says the government won’t provide an exemption to a particular sector and a rebate program would create a lot of paperwork. “We said fine, do what you are doing with some of the other industries and reinvest some of those carbon tax funds in agriculture,” Barnett says, adding that the money could be used to fund the environmental goods and services that

managed ranches provide, specifically a forage carbon sequestration program. “We’re in the business of growing and using forage and they have carbon tax credits for trees and we are saying why not look at a carbon tax program for forage production?” David Zirnhelt, a Cariboo Cattlemen’s Association director and chair of the association’s marketing committee, says work is underway at Thompson Rivers University on how to measure soil-carbon metrics and uptakes. “It is all about the incremental amount you can add to what’s there in nature to the status quo,” says Zirnhelt, who is also on the carbon committee for the Grasslands Council. “Our industry of agriculture relies on a fair bit of fuel, usually diesel,” Barnett says. “You could say that if they provided us with alternatives (to diesel) or if there was work being done on alternatives that got us away from the need for diesel fuel, then it could work out that way. They could exempt it, they could rebate it, they could invest it back into agriculture in some way, and that’s what we need them to do so that we don’t have what’s essentially just an additional cost that our competitors don’t have.” He adds that ranches also provide ecological goods and services that have societal ben-

efits and values, such as wildlife habitat, pollination of plants, landscapes, green spaces, and tourism. Another barrier B.C. ranchers face is meat inspection and licencing of slaughterhouses. While there are some slaughterhouses in B.C., and even the Cariboo, Barnett says that animals cut, killed, and wrapped in B.C. must stay in B.C., whereas Alberta can export out of the country since it has fully federal-inspected facilities. He says while government’s agriculture strategy discusses increasing the export of B.C. beef to China, animals must first be sent to Alberta for slaughter before they are sent to China. Grant Huffman is also a director of the local association, is involved in the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association, and represents a regional and national marketing perspective. He says the reason why B.C. doesn’t have the same level of slaughterhouses as Alberta is due to scale — in order to justify having a federal investigator on site, there needs to be a certain volume to support having one. Country of origin labelling, Huffman says, is also limiting ranchers’ ability to be competitive. He says country of origin labelling, which has been in place in the U.S. for about two years, is a non-tariff trade barrier and imposes regulations

and limits on the desirability of the Canadian product. In a U.S. supermarket, the product has to be marked as coming from Canada, which can be positive because many see the Canadian product as being a superior product, but packing houses have to keep those cattle separate during processing.

Your smile is like the sunshine, each and every day, your great humor and wit uplifts me and makes life seem better in every way. So thank-you my little Grandma, for all you’ve done for me, I am so happy that a day will come when we’ll be together for all eternity. All our love until that shall come to be.

Organic beef in demand Continued From Page A14 The supermarket also has to keep it separate. It’s an inventory problem, he says, that reduces Canada’s ability to be competitive in the U.S. by 10 to 20 per cent. The World Trade Organization, he notes, has agreed with Canada that country of origin labelling is a non-tariff trade barrier, but the U.S. has appealed. A decision on the appeal is supposed to be in June, though Huffman is skeptical that will happen. There are some positives in the industry. Zirnhelt says consumer trends show that people are willing to pay a little more for having a healthier product, such as organic and grass-fed beef, which he says B.C. can provide. But, he says, more infrastructure needs to be built for finishing and operations to help the grass-fed market grow. Zirnhelt has worked to organize a series of workshops to help ranchers learn new skills or how to go back to the old ways of doing things. The first session, which already has been completed, dealt with business models, particularly Manitoba’s. Next, the workshops

Cariboo ranchers Sharon Huffman (left), Duncan Barnett, and David Zirnhelt were among dozens of local ranchers attending a workshop on finishing beef in a natural way on grass held recently at Thompson Rivers University with instructor Jim Lintott from the Manitoba Grass Fed Beef organization. will look at applications and animal evaluations for finishing on grass. Those interested in learning more about the workshops can e-mail cattlemen@xplornet. com. Barnett adds that ranchers aren’t trying to replace grain-fed beef, but rather to develop complimentary alternatives so all of their eggs aren’t in one basket. The international markets are opening up more to B.C. beef, which is especially good news for ranchers who are seeing a drop in

red-meat consumption in Canada. Huffman says in 1995, Canada’s per capita consumption of beef was 54 pounds per person. In 2012, it was 27 — almost half. “It really emphasizes that off-shore markets are going to be more important,” says Huffman, a board member of Canada Beef Incorporated, which promotes and markets beef domestically and offshore. “U.S. is still our largest

export market but the U.S.’s largest export market is Canada, so we trade back and forth.” He says the European market is opening up as well, though with it comes more severe restrictions. Growth promotants, for example, aren’t allowed in Europe. “But we do have a quota there and we didn’t have a quota before, as long as you meet those restrictions,” Huffman says.
