Teachers to vote on plan of action in face of Bill 22 BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff


Isis, left, and Nebula belly danced for a good cause on Monday inside the Ferraro Foods foyer to raise awareness of the Flash Mob they have planned for May 12 (International Belly Dance Day) in Trail. The two, along with the rest of the Soul Fire Dance troupe, will be in the city that day to fundraise for the women’s shelter. People can donate ahead of time by emailing


Bright idea produces green benefits BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

There aren’t many people who would argue with saving 93 per cent on their electricity bill. A proposed plan to cut power usage to city street lights down to seven per cent will be unveiled this week as a summit of another sort sits when the top political minds of the Kootenay-Boundary region convene in Trail. Under the umbrella of the Association of KootenayBoundary Local Governments convention that begins

Thursday, the West Kootenay Climate Leadership Summit (WKCLS) will gather and mull over their latest green idea: LED street lighting. Although the City of Castlegar came up with the LED lighting idea, and they have implemented it in one of their subdivisions, Trail councilor Gord DeRosa said the Silver City is still toying with the idea — and considering the payoff. He said light emitting diodes are 13 times cheaper than fluorescent lighting. A lighting experiment this sum-

mer with the mural on the Cominco Arena wall could drop a $1,200 power bill in 2011 to around $84 this year. “That’s the sort of savings you have with LED,” he said. “But it’s a matter of estimating how far technology is going to take you and where is your best bang for your buck.” The nature of LED street lightning is still very new technology, said DeRosa. Although Trail has a green first philosophy — one that saved 45 per cent of the heating and cooling costs at the Aquatic Centre — he felt the

city would wait and see what results Castlegar uncovered. The summit this week will go a long way towards building a case for instituting wide spread LED street lighting, and will build on what has been an ongoing roundtable discussion of what communities should do to reduce carbon emissions. The WKCLS is group of 13 mayors, councilors and regional district directors from across the West Kootenay that have been bandying about ideas on a number of green topics.

This week will be the testing ground for whether the province’s back-to-work legislation has sufficiently cowed teachers across the province. Members of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation — including over 250 Kootenay Columbia Teachers Union (KCTU) members — will be voting today and Wednesday on their action plan in response to the province passing Bill 22, legislating them back to work late last month. Although the tenets of the teacher’s action plan are confidential and remain in committee, they will be made public on the day the voting results are tabulated, said KCTU representative Andy Davidoff. “I really don’t know which way it is going to go,” he said about the vote. “I guess we’ll see what the membership will decide to do and then it will get interesting after that.” Some information is available online on what possible strategy the teachers are considering, including stopping all voluntary activities, holding a vote on a province wide strike and working to defeat the Liberals in the May 2013 provincial election. The strategy includes continuing to teach, but not participate in any BC Ministry of Education

Report cards due BY TIMES STAFF The Labour Relations Board ruled Monday that teachers must produce report cards from the beginning of the school year when they staged a limited strike. The B.C. Public School Employers Association had applied to the Labour Relations Board for a decision on report cards, arguing teachers should write two missed report cards so parents know about their children’s progress. Teachers were legislated to resume full duties last month. “We are not doing retroactive reporting because that is struck work in our opinion,” said Davidoff prior to the Monday ruling.

Graduating sheriffs ride into West Kootenay courts Ministry of Justice adds two new sheriffs to roster BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

There’s a new sheriff in town. Make that two new sheriffs, working at the Rossland Provincial Courthouse and circuit courts throughout the West Kootenay. Based in Nelson at the central Sheriff Services, the two new sheriffs will join a complement of six sheriffs — including one inspector — that serves the entire West Kootenay area’s courthouses such as Rossland and Castlegar. The need was there, said a Ministry of Justice official, even though the caseload has not specifically increased in the last few years in the Rossland court. “The number of sheriffs required at a courthouse varies each day and is based on a number of factors, including but not limited to the number and types of cases being heard and whether there are any in-custody accused,” said the official. “But we continually assess needs for court administration and support staff.” Overall, British Columbia’s justice system has been strengthened with the addition of 23 new deputy sheriffs who began working in courtrooms throughout the province last week. The sheriffs received their badges at the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) in New Westminster two weeks

ago following intensive training, and now they will help ensure safe and efficient courts. The new graduates bring to 57 the number of new sheriffs to have joined the justice system over the past five months. The cost for training each sheriff recruit is approximately $25,000 and is part of the more than $1 billion the province spends annually on B.C.’s public safety and justice system. Their main responsibilities include: escorting prisoners between court, correctional centres and police lock-up facilities; courthouse and courtroom security, including the management of courthouse lock-up facilities; and jury management. Across the province 17 new sheriff recruits have been deployed to courthouses throughout the Lower Mainland, including in Vancouver, Richmond, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Surrey, Port Coquitlam, Abbotsford and Chilliwack. One new deputy sheriff has started in the city of Cranbrook and will also assist with circuit courts throughout the East Kootenays, two in Prince George and another in Fort St. John. There are more than 500 sheriffs working in 45 courthouses and 44 circuit courts in communities throughout B.C. The Justice Institute of B.C. has trained and deployed 57 new sheriffs in the past five months alone. TIMOTHY SCHAFER PHOTO

Free hot dogs were handed out Monday by Melanie Mason, right, and Sherri Bond, outside Ferraro Foods as Trail FAIR (Family and Individual Resource Centre) Society participated in The Clothesline Project, to recognize Prevention of Violence Against Women Week (April 15-21). Hand-painted T-shirts by local women who’ve been exposed to domestic and other forms of violence were hung on the wall to deliver the message of an abuse-free community.

Union objects to appointed mediator FROM PAGE 1 initiatives, and agree to write a single year-end report card for each student this year. If accepted, the teachers will launch a public campaign — including advertising, public meetings, and print material — to educate about the impact of Bill 22, and mobilize opposition to it around the province. As well, they could still hold a future province-wide vote of members to support a full withdrawal of services commencing on a date as determined by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation execu-

tive committee. Many teachers are demoralized because they feel the province does not respect them, said Davidoff. He called the Education Improvement Act (Bill 22) “draconian” and contained some harsh provisions built into it for any acts that contravene legislation, including a $475 per day fine for each teacher. He expected the government would enforce those provisions if teachers contravened any portions of the act. A legal overturn of the government-appointed

mediator, Charles Jago, is being mounted. Davidoff said the BCTF is contending Jago is not an independent mediator, he has no labour relations training, and he participated in writing Bill 22. As a result, they have gone to the Labour Relations Board and have tried to have him removed. “How could somebody that wrote the legislation mediate a settlement between the teachers and the province? “It just doesn’t seem fair,” said Davidoff. The hearing is pending.

Court approves use of pot brownies and THC tea Supreme Court of B.C. rules medical marijuana users can ingest ingredients in ‘safest and most effective,’ manner BY JEFF NAGEL Surrey North Delta Leader

Medical marijuana users can legally eat pot brownies or drink THC tea rather than just smoke the drug, B.C. Supreme Court has ruled. Justice Robert Johnston found Health Canada’s Medical Marijuana Access Regulations unreasonably limited users to possessing only the dried form of pot. The judge ruled users should be able to choose “how to ingest the medicinal ingredients in the safest and most effective manner” and that the rules are unconstitutional. The decision is part of a marijuana trafficking case against Victoria man Owen Smith, the hired baker of the Cannabis Buyers’ Club of Canada, who turned marijuana into cookies, oils, capsules and ointments for the club’s 3,700 members. Defence lawyers argued the dried-only rule forces people to

smoke to get the medical benefit, adding that’s more unhealthy than eating it or applying it topically. The court heard evidence that orally consumed marijuana may deliver the therapeutic benefit more directly for gastrointestinal conditions and that oral ingestion prolongs the effects, which is important for those with chronic pain or glaucoma. Crown prosecutors argued the rule allowing medical users possession of dried pot only helps police or regulators easily determine if a user is exceeding the possession limit, which would be more complex if a user instead had marijuana cookies or cannabis butter. “I conclude that this restriction is arbitrary,” Johnston ruled. “I am not prepared to infer that it is necessary to restrict medical marijuana to its dried form in order to make enforcement of the drug laws possible.” The decision was a ruling on part of the evidence in the case against Smith, which is still slated to go to trial because he may have provided pot products to nonauthorized users. It’s not clear whether the ruling will take effect immediately or if Crown will appeal.

The Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako is calling for an independent audit of forestry practices


District questioning ministry’s data BY ANDREW HUDSON Houston Today

Troubled by an audit of how the B.C. government manages timber, mayors and rural directors at the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako (RDBN) is seeking independent advice on forestry. Last Thursday, the RDBN’s forestry committee discussed what Smithers Mayor Taylor Bachrach called a “pretty damning” report released in February by the B.C. Auditor General. The report found B.C.’s forests ministry lacks clear timber goals and is not doing enough to replant trees, invest in silviculture, provide accurate forest data, manage big-picture changes or publicly report its results in a measurable way. In response to the first issue, the ministry said its key timber goals—to maintain a valuable timber supply and keep wood costs competitive—are set out in law, while more precise targets are decided regionally. On other issues, the ministry largely defended its record. For example, the ministry noted that since 2005 it has stepped up replanting to 20 million seedlings to recover areas hit by pine beetles and wildfires. On the final recommendation, the ministry did agree to start publishing the results of its long-term timber plans in a measurable way.

Lack of public information seemed to be the sticking point among members of the RDBN forestry committee. “Some of my concern is that quite often this stuff is held behind closed doors,” says Bill Miller, RDBN chair and director of the Burns Lake rural area. In other cases, Miller said the problem is that the ministry itself seems to lack up-to-date forestry data. On tree counts, Miller said, “They do a lot of ‘circle the area, count the trees, and extrapolate. That’s not accurate, the AuditorGeneral has said that, and we’ve known that for years.” The ministry also needs to start doing inventories of biomass as well as sawlogs, Miller said. Pellet plants, biofuels companies and others have asked local governments for data on available waste-wood and unconventional timber, he explained, but so far the ministry hasn’t inventoried those types of stands. A more long-standing problem, Miller says, is that anyone who holds a licence to cut Crown trees—whether they are industry, a community forest, or a First Nations tenure—has to follow stricter stewardship laws than the government itself. Even before they circle a group of trees for harvest, Miller explained, licence holders are legally required to make detailed plans on how they will protect

wildlife, waterways, road access and other values. After logging, the licence holder has to replant the trees and raise them to “free-growing” stage—a process that takes between seven and 20 years— before the stand returns to the care of the B.C. government. “Once it turns over to the Crown, there’s no forest stewardship plan anymore,” Miller said, noting that even freegrowing stands are vulnerable to wildfires, diseases and new resource projects that all require updated plans. Aside from long-term issues such as the pine-beetle impact and wildfire risks, the RDBN may turn to independent experts to gauge the province’s recovery plan for the Burns Lake sawmill. Expected by the end of April, the plan will likely relax some forestry rules, such logging restrictions in scenic areas. That is a measure all B.C. municipalities have asked the province to consider before, but one that RDBN members said requires input from each local community, particularly those with a tourism sector. “It’s us, at the local government level, who are tasked with ensuring that for our communities,” Miller said. “So what we’ve been saying all along is that we need to have far more input into that decision-making process.”

Vandals strike government offices THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL - Vandals targeted Quebec government offices on Monday, smashing windows and using what police said appeared to be Molotov cocktails. Gabriel Retta, the manager of the office of Marguerite Blais, the minister responsible for seniors, says he went to the office after receiving a phone call from an alarm-system company. “When we arrived, there were already police here and we went in by the back door and when we went in the office, we smelled a strange odour and the police decided to call the firefighters,� he said in an interview. Retta would only say that a substance was found inside the office. “They said it’s a bottle, so maybe it’s a Molotov cocktail,� he said.

Retta added the whole building was evacuated for safety reasons. Montreal police said windows were smashed and incendiary devices were also found in a building in the riding of Justice Minister Jean-Marc Fournier. No arrests were made, although two provincial police investigators were called in for assistance. Along with the vandalism, graffiti in the form of red squares was also painted on the sidewalks outside Blais’ office. The red square has become the symbol of students who have been staging protests against the Quebec government’s plan to hike tuition fees over the next five years. Thousands of students have staged walkouts and blocked entrances to classrooms in the past few weeks.

MP apologizes for robocall accusation THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - An NDP MP says he’s sorry for falsely accusing an Edmonton company of being behind the robocall affair. Pat Martin says he now knows RackNine and its owner, Matt Meier, had nothing to do with the misleading automated phone calls in last May’s federal election. “RackNine was merely an innocent intermediary not a participant in electoral fraud,� Martin said Monday. “I apologize for any damage my statements may have caused to Mr. Meier personally or to RackNine, and I have been specifically authorized by the NDP to apologize on behalf of the NDP for any similar damage the publications on the NDP website may have caused.� RackNine filed a $5-million defamation lawsuit against Martin and the NDP last month over the MP’s remarks and comments published on the party’s website. “Martin’s words were defamatory, and, in the very least, carried the innuendo that Meier and/ or RackNine had committed criminal activity, fraudulent activity, participated in a conspiracy, intimidation, sabotage and/or deceit,� the statement of claim says. The lawsuit stems from comments Martin made during a February news conference, which he repeated in the days that followed. “I now know that the statements I made insinuating Mr. Meier’s and RackNine’s participation in an electoral fraud conspiracy were wholly and unequivocally false,� Martin said. “In my rush to express my personal outrage and the outrage of the NDP caucus, I jumped to conclusions I now know are unsupported by fact.�

Martin says to his knowledge, neither Meier nor RackNine have ever been investigated for electoral fraud. He acknowledged that RackNine provides a “legitimate� service, similar to services used by many political parties. Martin did not take questions after he finished reading his apology. Canadians from every part of the country have complained to the elections watchdog about misleading telephone calls during last May’s federal election.

Quick course in environmentalism for dummies


avid Suzuki has resigned as a director of his namesake foundation so it won’t be the target of federal government “attacks.” This news is conveyed to me in a “Globe and Mail,” report that is typically tilted in deference to “Canada’s most famous environmentalist.” The usual assumptions are woven in: Suzuki is a saint. His every utterance is treated as scientific fact, even when it’s a leftwing political rant. The Conservative government is a front for Big Oil that has “attacked” environmental groups by reminding them that political activities are not eligible for charitable tax exemptions. In recent years, the David Suzuki Foundation’s campaign focus has been noticeably in step with the large U.S. foundations that fund most of B.C.’s enviro-scare industry: first salmon farming and now the Alberta “tar sands” in all its exaggerated

horror. Suzuki’s personal activities aren’t easily distinguished from those of his foundation, as was illustrated with his recent CBC documentary that demonized the “tar sands.” Diseased fish were displayed, but natural contamination of the Athabasca River was glossed over. Aboriginal objections were highlighted, while local support and economic benefits were overlooked. This isn’t science or charity. It’s tabloid journalism. Sensationalize, ignore facts that weaken the drama, play to people’s emotions. And he expects to be subsidized by the CBC and charitable tax exemptions as well? This news comes as I finish reading Patrick Moore’s book, “Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout.” I was one of many young fans who cheered as Moore, Bob Hunter and the other 1970s Greenpeace pioneers set out from Vancouver to disrupt Soviet nuclear testing, and


FLETCHER B.C. Views then turned to the regime’s slaughter of whales. In 1986, Moore split with Greenpeace and worked to set up a family chinook salmon farm. He said Greenpeace opposed aquaculture because it destroys tropical mangrove swamps. Tropical prawn farms have no rational connection with B.C., but a global organization needs simple ideas that sell. This approach was seen in an earlier 1980s campaign against chlorine in pulp mills. Greenpeace protests against dioxins and

the herbicide 2,4,5-T were eventually dumbed down to opposing the use of chlorine in all industries, including production of PVC plastic. Pulp mills developed a way to eliminate trace dioxins from their production, but that didn’t matter once Greenpeace had a global campaign going. They still used chlorine, so they’re bad. Speaking of chlorine, PCBs are polychlorinated biphenyls, a persistent background toxin. Tests found levels three to five times higher in some wild salmon compared to farmed. But the wild salmon results were ignored in a 2004 study, used by Suzuki to depict farmed salmon as poisonous. His foundation’s salmon farm campaign quietly disappeared down the memory hole after its PCB claims were debunked. Moore highlighted another bit of greenwashing in a visit to Victoria last year. The vaunted “LEED” certifi-

cation for green building standards gives you points if your concrete is locally sourced, but no points for using wood instead. That’s because the long campaign by major environmental groups has devolved to “logging is bad.” Here’s the latest example. Greenpeace, ForestEthics and the Sierra Club were bankrolled by U.S. foundations to negotiate with the B.C. government, aboriginal people and forest companies for the 2006 “Great Bear Rainforest” agreement on the B.C. coast. Economic opportunity was delicately balanced against preservation, and First Nations gained new control of forests. Now the big enviros have begun campaigning against their own deal. As much as 50 per cent could still be logged, they say. It seems this particular green peace is bad for their business. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press

Movie fans continue to eat up ‘Hunger Games’ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Movie fans have chosen real violence over the slapstick variety as “The Hunger Games” held off “The Three Stooges” to remain the No. 1 weekend movie. Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games,” the blockbuster about teens competing in a televised fight to the death, stayed on top for a fourth-straight weekend with $21.5 million. That raises the film’s domestic total to $337.1 million. Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s slapstick update “The Three Stooges” opened in second-place with $17.1 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The acclaimed horror tale “The Cabin in the Woods” debuted in third-place with $14.9 million. On the 100th anniversary of the ship’s sinking on April 15, 1912, the 3-D version of James Cameron’s “Titanic” sailed past the $2 billion mark worldwide. “Titanic” is just the second blockbuster to top $2 billion, trailing only the next film Cameron made - the sci-fi sensation “Avatar,” which took in $2.8 billion.

Wake up Canada My parents said to me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You will never be a politician. You were brought up the right way. Always tell the truth and respect your elders.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious how the politicians are fairing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what with the high overruns on the F35s, subs, etc etc. Wake up, Canadians, you have been had. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a change. Remember what mom and dad said. Bill Rae, Trail

Residential parking isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for downtown workers A parking lot or a residential street? This is what residents of the 1400 block of Columbia Avenue are trying to figure out. When the Credit Union moved its offices from Waneta to downtown on a floor of the clinic some of the employees figured it would be cheaper and, I imagine, easier to park in East Trail and walk back to work over the bridge. So we have Kiro Wellness employees in one half of the block and employ-

ees from downtown parked in the other half of the block. Then we have people who need treatment in Kiro but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay long. Perhaps we should install our own parking meters if then we would be able to park in front of our own homes or make some money on the side. Tell me how would you like us to park in front of your house all day? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no room for company to park and you have to go into the alley to

unload your car. Perhaps the Credit Union should be providing parking for their employees. Something for these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;unwanted parkers,â&#x20AC;? to think about; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do unto others as you would have them do to you.â&#x20AC;? The reason Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m writing this today is there is a resident who has a son who is disabled and the man of the house was out first thing this morning.

The answer is by ance management and interopbeing part of a military alliance erability, we come to a crucial based on shared interests and question: of those remaining, values, like democracy, the rule how do you choose one?


Based on the debate around the F-35s, one might conclude that everyone from the Auditor General, the Parliamentary Budget Officer, the Opposition and most newspaper editorialists, the answer is cost. We should hold an open competition and choose the cheapest fighter good enough to do the job. Rubbish. Why? We are on the cusp of a great change in fighter jet technology. Fifth generation jets have information technology, weaponry, stealth capabilities and other overwhelming advantages. Yes, not all the bugs have been worked out, but they will be. The stakes are simply too high. America is getting out of the fourth generation business and putting all its eggs in the F35 basket. European manufacturers are stumbling in the technology race; they will not make the shift to fifth generation. That means a future with only three cutting edge fifth generation planes: the American, the Russian and eventually the Chinese. Final question: if in coming decades, God forbid, Canada needs to fly combat missions against enemies with the latest technology, do we intend to win, or to send our pilots into combat with outdated equipment that was â&#x20AC;&#x153;good enoughâ&#x20AC;? years ago when we bought them in a time of technological ferment? You have now gone through the thought process that led most of our allies, the Canadian military, and governments, both Liberal and Tory, to conclude that there is no realistic alternative to the F-35. They are right and the government should have the courage to say so and defend the price tag that goes with it.

Toronto crowd shows its love for Oprah Winfrey THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO Embattled media queen Oprah Winfrey brought her travelling roadshow north of the border Monday, reaching out to an audience of hardcore Canuck fans who pledged their support to the veteran talk show host. “Oprah’s Lifeclass: The Tour” - a five-hour parade of life lessons and motivational cheer from a who’s who of spiritual gurus - brought thousands of devotees out of their seats to cheer Winfrey in a cavernous convention hall that was turned into a TV studio for the day. In turn, Winfrey declared her affection for Canadian fans and thanked them for sticking by her. Dressed in a bright coral dress, she bound-

ed onto a white stage flanked by two massive banners emblazoned with the logo for her ailing specialty network, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Channel. “Canadaaaaa!” Winfrey bellowed to an enthusiastic crowd who shouted their love for her. “I love you back immensely, deeply, profoundly. Seriously.” Winfrey was in town to tape back-to-back episodes of her selfhelp series “Oprah’s Lifeclass: The Tour” and she poked fun at the fact it was the first time she’d ever shot a show north of the border. “What took me so long to get to Toronto? I had a little show. I had a little day job,” she said to chuckles, referring to her long-running day-


Oprah Winfrey (right) and Anthony Robbins arrive for “Oprah’s Lifeclass Tour” in Toronto on Monday. time series “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” which wrapped last year. “But I will say that every single day in 25 years of the show I would ask people where they came from

and every single day there’d be someone from Canada.” Winfrey elicited frequent hoots and cheers from a crowd organizers estimated at 8,500. “I am feeling the love in Canada,” she said. “This is so great you all came and you knew Beyonce isn’t here.” Audience members listened to various selfhelp gurus for almost three hours before Winfrey finally took the stage.

Spiritualist Deepak Chopra kicked things off with a lesson on connecting with the universe, drawn from his book “Spiritual Solutions: Answers to Life’s Greatest Challenges.” Iyanla Vanzant then got spirits soaring with an exuberant walk through the audience, urging people to stand and clap along to upbeat music that filled the cavernous hall. Bishop T.D. Jakes

and motivational speaker Tony Robbins wrapped the pre-show with their own take on facing adversity and being your best self. But the real star of the day was clearly Winfrey. Hundreds of fans showed up hours in advance of the first two-hour taping, forming a queue that snaked several blocks around the convention centre. Several of them described a chaotic seating scene when they got inside, complaining that ticketholders from multiple lower tiers raced into the venue with little guidance. Barb Barone, at the show with her daughter Stephanie, says they were initially forced to sit in a $60 section even though they bought $250 tickets. “It was ridiculous,” says Barone, who eventually moved into the proper section after complaining. “They weren’t placing you in sections. They just said, ‘Find a seat.”’ Even when they had

settled into their allotted spots, Stephanie noted they were so far back from the stage they had to watch the show on the massive movie screens. “I may as well sit at home, I’m watching it on TV,” she said. “I expected more for that money.” The theme of the morning show was “gratitude.” It’s set to air April 30. An evening show about forgiveness was set to air live on OWN Canada on Monday night. The two shows come as Winfrey embarks on a tough battle to ignite sagging ratings for OWN, which is run by Corus Entertainment as OWN Canada north of the border. Admitting she’s made mistakes in the launch of the channel, Winfrey has boosted her presence and influence both in front of and behind the cameras. A large part of that has been through her popular series, “Lifeclass,” which includes a strong social media component.

Calgary couple offers up free concert tickets THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - They could potentially make a pretty penny scalping two tickets to a Garth Brooks concert that sold out in about a minute on the weekend. But Michalle Lemanne and her boyfriend Matt Lamb have RECYCLABLE BUTTON




decided to give away the spare pair to the July 12 show at the Calgary Saddledome. They say in an ad on Kijiji that they’ll give the tickets to the fans they deem most deserving, based on emails sent to them by the end of May. The couple are part of a group

that bought the maximum six tickets, but only needed four in the end. The quick sellout has led to a storm of criticism aimed at ticket re-sellers. One ad on Kijiji is offering to sell floor seats to the concert at $1,500 a pop.

Cooper commits BCHL - The Trail Smoke Eaters leading scorer Erik Cooper has accepted an offer to play for the NCAA Div. III national champion St. Norbert College Green Knights for the coming season. Cooper, a native of Anchorage, Alaska, caught fire in the second half of the season, picking up the scoring pace after Clayton Chessa was traded at the beginning of January. The 20 year old scored 32 of his 49 points in the second half of the season. In all Cooper played 99 games with the Smokies scoring 30 goals

and 45 assists over two seasons. The 5-foot-11, 178-pound forward will become the sixth BCHL alumni to join the Green Knights roster. Cooper joins former Smoke Eater Cullen Bradshaw, Nanaimo Clippers alums Justin Favreau and Joe Perry, Victoria Grizzlies/Quesnel Millionaires alum Sam Higgins and Powell River Kings grad Reid Campbell on the team. St. Norbert won its second straight Div. III title on March 17 with 4-1 win over Oswego State.


Host team wins in OT ABBOTSFORD NEWS


Close to 40 athletes turned out for the Gerick Cycle Fun Run, Sunday on Hwy 22A. The five and 10-kilometre run is a good way to kick off the warm weather season whether training for a triathlon or just getting a little exercise.

The Abbotsford Pilots navigated their way to a double-overtime victory against the Victoria Cougar Sunday to claim the Cyclone Taylor Cup. At 4:17 of the second overtime period in the championship game, the host team’s Garett Lynum lobbed a wrist shot from the left point

that floated through a crowd of bodies and found the top corner behind Victoria Cougars goalie Evan Roch. When the puck hit the twine, it set off a wild celebration on the ice at MSA Arena, as the Pilots punched their ticket to the Keystone Cup, the Western Canadian championship tournament in

Saskatoon next week. Asked what happened from his perspective on the gamewinning goal, Lynum could only shrug and chuckle. “I don’t score much, so I don’t really know,” he said with an ear-toear grin. “But seeing it go in the net was the best thing ever.”

made more turnovers than the City Bakery, including an incomprehensible minus-4 on the power play. Henrik Sedin was lost without his brother Daniel. He literally skated circles around the L.A. Kings, but had no linemate remotely connected to his radar. The Kings kept Sedin and most of the shots to the perimeter all night. The Sedins have played Lines together since they were five, together they are a dynamic duo, a playmaking force. Singularly, it’s another story- it’s like macaroni disenfranchised of its cheese – it just doesn’t work. So whom will a Canuck fan’s spurious logic blame if the President’s trophy winner becomes the first such team to be swept in the opening round? Daniel Sedin of course. Out with concussion-like symptoms, the 2011 MVP candidate hasn’t played a playoff game yet, but


is the obvious scapegoat for Vancouver’s woeful offense. His absence may potentially cost the Canucks the series. Which makes me wonder - after watching AM Ford’s Fight Night Saturday, I saw more than a dozen guys and two girls get hit harder than the talented Swede. I’m not saying his injury isn’t legitimate, but the headshot is emerging as a reactionary epidemic where every single hit is grounds for suspension and a holiday from the rink for both hitter and hittee. Perhaps Canuck players should train with Pride Gym fighters, learn how to take a hit and give one occasionally, but most of all, they need a lesson in how to get up off the mat after being knocked down. Hopefully they can do that in Game 4. My revised bold prediction: I’m going with Fruitvale native and new sentimental favourite, Barrett Jackman’s St. Louis Blues. The Blues had a great season and Jackman, with nearly 600 career NHL games under his belt, would like nothing more than to top off an outstanding career with a Cup. The Blues in six over Philadelphia.

How the mighty have fallen. It took less than a week for the Vancouver Canucks and Pittsburgh Penguins to go from Stanley Cup contenders to potential first-round fodder. Over a matter of days, the Canucks and Penguins both dug big 0-3 holes - a deficit that has been virtually insurmountable over the history of the NHL. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m surprised to see both of them on the ropes,â&#x20AC;? said Kevin Weekes, a former NHLer who now works as a broadcaster for CBC. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s far from alone. The Canucks head into Game 4 at Los Angeles on Wednesday night looking to avoid a dubious entry in the record book - they could become the first team in the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s post-expansion era to finish with the most points in the regular season and get swept in the first round of the playoffs. There isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much debate over the difference in the series so far. Vancouver has mustered just four goals - a number matched by Kings captain Dustin Brown alone - against Los Angeles goaltender Jonathan Quick through three games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to give credit where credit is due, and obviously they are getting a great performance by their goaltender,â&#x20AC;? Canucks coach Alain Vigneault said after a 1-0 loss in Game 3 on Sunday night. Weekes, a former goaltender himself, agrees with that assessment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accomplished this year is probably something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen before,â&#x20AC;? he said of Quick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only does he play on the lowestscoring team in the league, but he became an allstar and led his team to the playoffs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dominik Hasek-eque, to be honest with you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sick.â&#x20AC;? The Penguins have been left with a sick feeling after getting outscored 20-12 over three games by the Philadelphia Flyers. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be facing elimination on Wednesday night when Game 4 is played at Wells Fargo Center. Only three NHL teams have ever come back to win a series after being down 3-0, with the 2010 Flyers the most recent to achieve the feat against Boston in the second round. The Canucks and Penguins were both labelled Cup favourites this spring for a good reason and could still reverse course to become the fourth franchise to climb out of a big hole.

Trail Daily Times Tuesday, April 17, 2012 A15


Do not feel guilty for being unable to help mother Dear Annie: I am 24 and have four small children under age 10. My mother was in a car accident last fall that left her paralyzed from the chest down, and she now lives with us. With hardly any help from my older sister, I struggle every day trying to take care of everyone’s needs. Mom screams at me and makes the smallest of things seem like the end of the world. I don’t want to see her in a nursing home, but I cannot do this 24/7. I’m losing my mind and my life. My kids don’t want to be around me, and my oldest son’s grades are declining. Do I keep going, hoping things will get better? Or do I break the news to my mom that I love her dearly but can’t take care of her? -- A. Dear A.: You sound like a wonderful, caring daughter, but Mom is probably depressed and angry, and is taking it out on you. There are limits to what you



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

can reasonably do for her without sacrificing the well-being of your children. Please don’t feel guilty. Your mother needs more help than you can give her. She not only requires round-the-clock physical care, but also would benefit from counseling to deal with her other issues and come to terms with her current situation. Please look into home-health care options, including a full-time caregiver (perhaps your sister would contribute to the cost), as well as nearby nursing homes. Most do an excellent job, and you can visit Mom every day, not only to cheer

her up, but also to check on her care. Then please get some counseling for yourself in order to get through this, because we doubt Mom is going to make it easy. Dear Annie: Is it OK to ask my 80-year-old parents whether they will leave any inheritance for my siblings and me? I’m not looking to spend it. But getting an answer will help with our future retirement planning. Of course, as with most families, there are all kinds of additional “wonderful” dynamics at work that complicate asking. What is your stance on this? -- Wondering Dear Wondering: Children should never assume there is an inheritance to receive. Plan your retirement according to what you can manage on your own. You can, however, discuss your parents’ plans for their future care, asking whether they have a health care power of attorney, a will, any wishes

for their funeral, etc. These are important things that ought to be arranged while your parents are capable of doing so. However, if they resist discussing end-of-life issues, please leave it alone. Dear Annie: I teach treatment of sexual dysfunction at Loma Linda University School of Medicine. You correctly identify low testosterone as an important cause of loss of desire. However, I have found in many cases that the cause is simple boredom with a wife’s participation. Men and women both require an average of 12 minutes of foreplay to reach full arousal. A wife who takes turns providing pleasure should find her partner more eager for sex. Men respond to action far more than words. When there is an expectation of prolonged mutual pleasuring, it creates a lovely aura of arousal long before the clothes come off.

Please remind women that a man is aroused by the sight of his wife’s naked body not because she’s a supermodel, but because her body is only shown to him. Mood lighting can help. A semi-closed

dressing gown or the sight of her in one of his not-quite-longenough shirts can be a powerful visual stimulant to a man who sees offering sex as the most powerful statement of love and caring. You do great good by

helping women understand that men will never behave or understand them the way a girlfriend does. We men really are different and often are unable to express our needs clearly. -- D.B. M.D. Loma Linda, Calif.



Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to Friday. SOLUTION FOR YESTERDAY’S SUDOKU


Tuesday, April 17, 2012 Trail Daily Times


YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Wednesday, April 18, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Get ready to expect the unexpected today, because this is definitely an unpredictable day. (In part, this is because you feel restless and impulsive.) You are part of the formula! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Today you have that feeling that something unexpected might happen. (It’s in your gut.) Well, you’re right. Therefore, be on the lookout for something, and allow extra time for everything so that you can cope gracefully. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You can expect a friend or perhaps a member of a group to surprise you today. Alternatively, you might meet someone new who is unusual or even bizarre. It’s an interesting day!

CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Bosses, parents and authority figures might throw you a curveball today. Don’t overreact to whatever they say or do. And don’t quit your day job. Just be cool. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel plans might change or be canceled today. School schedules also might change suddenly. Expect to meet interesting people today! VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Stay in touch with your bank account to make sure you know what’s happening. Something unexpected could be going on. (Oh no.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Partners and close friends are feisty and rebellious today. You definitely can sense this. Just give them a lot of rope. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Staff shortages, computer

crashes, power outages and canceled meetings are par for the course today at work. Stay light on your feet and be patient so you can go with the flow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a mildly accidentprone day for your children, so be extra vigilant. Romance could hold a few surprises as well. (This is minor stuff, but something you should be aware of.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Small appliances might break down at home today. Or you might run out of something or suffer from minor breakages. Stay patient with family members. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a mildly accidentprone day for you so be mindful of what you say and do. Keep your eyes open! Be careful when driving.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might find money today; you might lose money. Ditto for your possessions. Everything that has to do with business, commerce and cash flow is a bit touch and go. YOU BORN TODAY At times, you’re heroic. You will vigorously defend what you believe in. However, you are not radical; you’re a traditionalist. In particular, you









will always fight for the rights of the underdog. Honor and loyalty are important to you. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved in for about nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new. Birthdate of: Maria Bello, actress; Eric McCormack, actor; David Tennant, actor. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

2786 Queen Street, Rossland

Three mountain caribou are wandering around Fort Steele and Mayook, and have even been sighted on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spray irrigation fields. The endangered animals are part of a herd of 19 caribou brought down from northern B.C. last month in an attempt by the provincial government to revive a dwindling herd in remote parts of the Purcell mountains. There are less than 1,700 mountain caribou in existence. The East Kootenay herd has less than 15 animals. To boost the local herd, 20 mountain caribou (17 females, three males) were taken from a healthy herd near Dease Lake, fitted with GPS radio collars then brought down to the Kootenays in specially designed animal trailers. One female caribou died on route. Ten of the translocated cari-

bou were released near an existing herd in the Purcells, but because of weather conditions, the remaining nine were released into vacant caribou habitat, according to Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of the nine who were put in vacant caribou territory, three of them have split off and the fourth (has travelled) over to the West Kootenay,â&#x20AC;? said Bennett, sharing information from government wildlife biologist Leo DeGroot, who is spearheading the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the new caribou are exploring the lower elevations which puts them at a much higher predation risk. There is one group of three who spent some time near Skookumchuck. They are currently near Fort Steele. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A single one is over in the Crawford Bay area. It actually swam across to Ainsworth at one point and then swam back again,â&#x20AC;? he said.
