Armed robbery at Subway

Proudly serving Williams Lake and the Cariboo-Chilcotin since 1930

VOL. 82. No. 37

WLSS staging Alice — A Wonderland

A woman was arrested following a report of an armed robbery at the Subway restaurant in Williams Lake Monday evening. The Williams Lake RCMP say they responded to the armed robbery call at about 6:30 p.m. A 22-year-old woman, who is known to police, was arrested in the incident. The RCMP say that limited information can be provided at this time, as the details of the robbery are sensitive. The investigation is still ongoing.

Williams Lake Secondary School drama students will be staging the musical Alice — A Wonderland by Canadian writers Roy Surette and Sandra Head in the school commons June 12 to 23. The play, based on Lewis Carroll’s popular classic Alice In Wonderland, is being directed by drama teacher Sidonie Boll who is very familiar with the play having played Alice in the first professional production of the Canadian musical staged at the Carousel Theatre in Vancouver. In the WLSS version, Boll was given permission to expand the play’s original small cast to include 25 drama students. Although just 14 and in Grade 8, Nicole Curbello won the role of Alice, but despite her young age, Boll is confident Nicole will be brilliant in the part. “We have a better Alice than even I was,” says Boll, who was a professional actor of 29 when she took on the role. Look for more on the story in future editions of the Tribune.

More and more information found on the Internet is being used to verify the character of scholarship or job applicants, deny insurance claims, or lead children as young as seven to live pornography sites, says social media expert Jesse Miller. Speaking before two dozen parents and youths at Columneetza Secondary School in Williams Lake Tuesday evening, Miller described how he has worked for eight American universities this year to identify character and ethics of scholarship applicants by searching them on the Internet, how he’s worked with the RCMP to help them with cases and been called into schools where students are involved in illegal activity because of the information they are sharing via social media. Last year Miller spoke to 175,000 students in B.C. schools and is convinced society needs to take the Internet back. “People haven’t changed that much, but the Internet has amplified human behaviour that we’ve chosen to ignore,” Miller says, adding a student known as a motivator letting the world know he’s lazy or disgruntled through his Facebook or Twitter feeds will come back to haunt him.

Separate fires set to vehicle, stairs Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Two nuisance fires this week have not amounted to much damage, but have required the Williams Lake fire department and RCMP’s attendance. The first, an abandoned vehicle fire at the Dairy Fields on Monday evening, resulted from youths throwing Molotov cocktails at the vehicle,

fire chief Randy Isfeld says. He says the vehicle has been there for a long time. “I have no idea how long. It was pretty much wrecked at the time. There wasn’t much to burn. The seats inside caught on fire, but the fire was almost out by the time we got there. It only took us a couple of minutes to get it out,” Isfeld says, adding the act itself was disturbing. The second fire took place Tues-

day and involved the stairs at an abandoned building on Mackenzie Avenue. Sgt. Rick LeBeuf says the RCMP were advised that a person walking a dog noted the back of the building had been burnt. “Police attended and noted smoke coming from part of the building and the fire department was called to the scene.” Isfeld adds that someone had lit

part of a staircase on fire at an abandoned building. “The fire itself was pretty minor, but the act itself wasn’t. Somebody had lit it, although it was actually just smoldering,” Isfeld says. LeBeuf adds there are no witnesses to the fire, but a bottle located at the scene contained a possible flammable substance. The case is still under investigation.

Art submissions welcomed for cabinet wrap initiative in WL The City of Williams Lake and the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society are inviting art submissions for their cabinet wrap initiative. Winning submissions will be printed on vinyl and wrapped around the 13 city-owned utility cabinets, with credits to the artist on both the installed art and on the city’s website. The city says the initiative will not only help beautify Williams Lake, but also address one of the blank canvasses for graffiti in the community. Submissions will consist of photos or photos of artwork that relate to the 10 priority areas of the Official Community Plan: • Social well being • Lively downtown • Active and convenient transportation • Affordable housing and livable neighbourhoods • World-class recreation • Cherished local ecosystems • Arts, culture and heritage • Partnering with First

Nations • Resilient economy • Local food and agriculture The submission deadline is June 15. A submission committee made up of City of Williams Lake councillors and representatives of the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society board will select the winning submissions. Winners will be invited to attend the installation of the vinyl wrapping of the utility boxes, their biographies will be posted on the city website, and will be recognized by city council for their contributions to the City of Williams Lake. “This initiative is an opportunity to partner with artists and the art community, to make our city even more beautiful, and to protect city infrastructure from graffiti,” says Coun. Laurie Walters, chair of the Community Services Committee in a press release, along with councillors Geoff Bourdon and Sue Zacharias, a member of the Submission Committee. “I encourage everyone to submit their work and be part of this excit-

ing project.” For more information contact Liliana Drag-

Trial dates set for mountie accused of assault The trial dates have been set for the assault case involving Const. Andy Yung. Yung has pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault, following a Sept. 10, 2011 incident when 17-year-old Jamie Haller was alleged to have sustained injuries while in the custody of Williams Lake RCMP. Yung will appear in

court on Nov. 7 for a pre-trial conference with a judge regarding the confirmed trial dates of Jan. 21-25, 2013. In March 2012, the Abbotsford Police Department concluded its investigation of an incident involving the arrest of the teen. At that time, it recommended a charge of assault against Yung.

Columneetza high school Parent Advisory Council member Tom Hoffman and social media expert Vancouver-based Jesse Miller after an information session held at Columneetza May 15. Miller was handing out information cards for parents on social media safety and awareness programs. He was also presenting to high schools students Wednesday.

sified and display ad deadline for the Tuesday, May 22 paper will be Thursday, May 17 at 5 p.m.

Insurance companies could cancel a theft if it turned out a kid posted that he was “bored in Maui on a family holiday,” hence letting the world know the family home is empty. Or, if someone who is texting on his/her phone while driving ends ups in a collision, ICBC will be able to trace the phone activity. Most alarming are the growing number of incidents where children are seeing or are involved with pornography via social media. Miller visits many schools where children are being disciplined for issues around “sexting,” where they’re saying explicit things in text messages and are also producing associated photos of themselves. More and more schools are dealing with these issues and are having to involve the police because, under the Criminal Code, it’s considered child pornography if children under 18 are

involved. Recently Miller was called to a school where the boys in Grade 8 were encouraged by the girls in Grade 8 to take pictures of their private parts. They got more points if they were exposing themselves in class. “Fifty-four kids got letters home saying this is what your kid’s doing,” Miller said Tuesday at the forum that was sponsored by the parents’ advisory council and the RCMP. “Most parents didn’t show up to the parent advisory meeting because it wasn’t ‘my kid.’ How do we get our kids to pay attention? After they are in handcuffs?” Miller checks out Twitter and Facebook accounts before he goes into a high school to give a presentation so he can give local examples. Before arriving in Williams Lake he learned that local youths were complaining about “Cariboo” problems, “firstworld” problems such as not knowing what shoes to wear, or the fact the

RCMP broke up a bush party on the weekend. Suggesting that most kids have already seen inappropriate things on the Internet, Miller encourages parents to make their children feel comfortable in telling them so that parents can report those sites. “There are so many websites out there that parents should be afraid of. You just don’t know about them yet. Tomorrow I’m going to mention a couple of websites that you don’t know about and your kids are going to laugh because they’ve seen these things and know that these websites exist.” More and more content is being shared through “friendship,” especially on Facebook. Showing how easy it is to connect by typing in Williams Lake and the name of one of the high schools, he shows how suddenly he accesses hundreds of people in Williams Lake. He also demonstrates how photographs taken on Iphones show the location where the photo-

graph was taken. “Go to the happy little sunflower where your pictures are. At the bottom of the screen it will say albums and places. Click places and the red dots that appear will broadcast where you were when you took the photo. The metadata includes the longitude and latitude of where you were standing,” Miller explains, adding it also applies to the Ipod, Ipad, Blackberry and Android phones. “More and more we need people aware of what our phones do.” Ninety-five per cent of Canadian schools are connected to the Internet, kids are connected at home, and if they aren’t they will use it at libraries or friends’ homes. “I would like to see Facebook and Twitter in the schools as tools to learn because these devices are amazing, but you can’t do that when every single kid out there is thinking they have to capture something right now.” Parents are encouraged to get involved with why their kids like what

they like on the Internet. “If they’re playing Angry Birds find out why? It could be the physics,” Miller says. He also says credit cards are better to use to purchase items on the Internet, rather than gift cards, because parents can see what their kids are buying. A credit-card bill might be better than a lawyer’s bill down the road, he adds. “More and more parents need to be involved when kids are buying things on the Internet. And if they are free there could be stipulations like going on a webcam for 20 minutes — some kids do that.” To keep kids safe he advocates not giving out excessive personal information online, to refrain from posting anything that would embarrass someone later, and not to believe everything seen on the Internet.

CMRC comes in under budget Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Financial figures at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex look rosy for 2011. Despite closures due to the pool shutdown to repair leaks in the summer, and an expected loss of up to $95,000, the CMRC was able to meet its targets budget-wise.

In a report to council, director of community services Geoff Paynton also noted that scheduled capital projects were completed in 2011 and the actual cost figures came in $160,000 less than the $448,000 budgeted. By August the Joint Committee was advised there could be shortfalls due to expenses and rev-

enue losses. As a result, measures were taken immediately by staff to try and control costs. “The measures mainly included reducing expenses in other areas, and attempting to increase revenue through several targeted market campaigns,” Paynton noted. Projected losses in revenue came in lower because after the pool

re-opened, users returned in large numbers, and increased revenue came from arena and rinkboard usage, advertising sales for the Active Living Guide, and modest increases in the Gibraltar Room and special events. “The end result of the increased revenue in other areas combined with cost saving resulted in a

small operating surplus of $15,000,” Paynton said. Council applauded staff for its work in coming in under budget. “It’s a small surplus, but fantastic for a recreation facility in this economy,” said coun. Ivan Bonnell. Coun. Laurie Walters added it’s not something seen very often.

High school grad gets boost Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer High school graduation ceremonies in Williams Lake will get a boost. While the city turned down a community grant application in the fall to support dry grad and the cap and gown ceremony because the grad committee had a savings account and couldn’t demonstrate

need, the city has now reached agreements to cover the costs of a three-day rental of the complex. “The total cost for both events is about $7,000. The intent is through the Joint-Use agreement to make the cap and gown event free. And the intent is to wave the dry grad fee under the fees and services provision as well,” said Mayor Kerry

Cook during last Tuesday’s regular council meeting. “We’re saying we value these events because they are important,” Cook added. In addition, the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex will also absorb the direct

costs of removing arena glass and providing a lift for the cap and gown ceremony. Dry Grad chair Betty Turatas hadn’t heard the news until contacted by the Tribune but said it’s wonderful. “That will definitely

help us out. With the economy the way it is we’re not getting the donations we had hoped for. “It will make life easier for a lot of us and it shows the city’s support for out students.”

Day-care centre wins award Williams Lake & District Daycare Centre has been awarded a Child Care Legacy Award for 40 years of service by the Ministry of Children and Family Development. “It’s important for families to have the

support they need to be successful and the Williams Lake & District Daycare Centre has been that rock for busy families for over 40 year,” says CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett says in a media release. “ I want to con-

gratulate them on their incredible accomplishment and thank them on behalf of all families in our region.” The Child Care Awards of Excellence recognize outstanding contributions made by child-care profession-

als, innovative individuals, organizations and local governments who support child-care initiatives in their communities. Award recipients were nominated by peers, parents and local governments and

chosen by a selection committee made up of individuals knowledgeable in the childcare field and ministry representatives. The awards are held during the month of May to celebrate Child Care Month in B.C.

School District 27 receives almost $11K in Dry Grad funds through BC Liquor Store campaign School District 27 has received $10,943 from the BC Liquor Store’s Support Dry Grad campaign to support alcohol-free high school graduation celebrations in their communities. A total of $540,692 has been donated by BC Liquor Store customers to support high schools across B.C. that are planning alcohol-free graduation events. The campaign is part of the Liquor Distribution Branch’s corporate social responsibility program to promote the responsible use of alcoholic beverages — a program that includes the prevention of underage drinking and promotion of zero consumption for minors. These funds will help local high school Dry Grad committees plan alcohol-free graduation events and activities such as boat cruises, ski trips and dances. The contributions by liquor store customers supplement funds raised by parents,

students and teachers who volunteer yearround to raise funds for dry grads. “I’m so proud of the kids for making it this far,” says CaribooChilcton MLA Donna Barnett in a news release. “It’s a really special time in their lives but it’s still really important to be careful and safe. “These funds will allow them to have exciting, memorable celebrations that are responsible as well.” From February 25 to March 31, BC Liquor Store customers throughout the province were asked if they would like to support dry grad celebrations in their communities by donating one dollar. This year, 55 school districts participated in the campaign. All donations collected are distributed to high schools hosting dry grad events. The Fort Street Signature Store in Victoria raised the highest amount this year, with a total of $12,509,

followed by the Fort St. John store with $12,290 and the Westshore Signature Store in Langford, which raised $12,168. Since the Liquor Distribution Branch’s

first annual Support Dry Grad campaign in 2001, more than $4.4 million has been donated by government liquor store customers for alcohol-free high school graduation

events in communities across British Columbia. Customers were given chocolates in recognition of their donation to the Dry Grad Campaign.

MORTGAGE NEWS Why Use a Mortgage Broker There are two ways you can get a mortgage in Canada: from a bank or from a licensed mortgage broker. While a bank only offers you products from their institution a licensed mortgage broker offers you mortgages from Canada’s largest banks, credit unions, and trust companies. This means you have access to hundreds of mortgage products. As a result, you benefit from the security of knowing you’re getting the best mortgage for your needs. Mortgage brokers are compensated by the lenders, at no charge to you, for bringing you to them. A fee is charged only for the most challenging credit solutions, and it’s especially under those circumstances that a mortgage broker can do for you what your bank likely won’t. Better rates, personalized service, and flexibility of products are what you’ll get when dealing with a broker.

Through the eyes of children

Maximizing our potential



ouncil received a presentation from Brian Groves, CEO of Spanish Mountain Gold, and the news is very exciting. The project continues to move forward, with the economics shaping up right for the company. Capital costs of the Spanish Mountain Gold mine near Likely would be at least $500 million; up to 600 construction jobs would be created, and the mine would employ up to 300 full-time workers. T h e From the c o m pany has Mayor’s already Chair signed Kerry Cook protocol agreements with the Williams Lake Indian Band and the Xat’sull First Nation. This project will be a very welcome addition to our regional economy. I attended the BC Summit on Cities Fit For Children last week, and joined mayors from Penticton, Vernon, Kamloops, and Nelson discussing our communities. I spoke of the great initiatives going on in Williams Lake — our Junior Council, the Cataline/Seniors Village Intergenerational Project, our bike park, Communities That Care, and others, as well as the Success by Six program, the Rotary literacy projects in the Chilcotin, and others. If we plan our cities through the eyes of children, we create a safe, accessible community for us all. This week, I am off to the firstever B.C. Mayors’ Caucus with more than 85 other mayors. We all have common issues, and one is the need for more partnerships with senior levels of government for infrastructure needs. Sixty-five per cent of all public infrastructure in B.C. is owned by municipalities; everything from roads to water and sewer systems, rinks, and swimming pools. I’m excited to share ideas and solutions with mayors from around the province. Local governments have the most impact on daily life in Canada, and the better a municipality can serve residents, the better off we all are. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Our Viewpoint

It’s a dangerous cyber world A speaker visited Columneetza Secondary School on Tuesday to educate parents and teachers about the dangers of social media and other aspects of the Internet (see story, pages A1 and A3). Many Facebook users have experienced that embarrassing realization that they were tagged in a somewhat embarrassing photo on their friend’s Facebook page. Though their friend may find the photo hilarious, it’s actually no laughing matter. That one picture could have devastating consequences if or when it is viewed by others, such as a potential employer. But Jesse Miller, the speaker at Tuesday’s forum, raised some even scarier scenarios, especially those that relate to our children. Though many adult social-media users understand some of the dangers of sharing personal information online, many children do not. It is our responsibility as parents and as teachers to

make sure our children know the dangers and potential consequences of sharing absolutely anything and everything online. Just as we make sure we know where they are going and what they are up to in “the real world,� it is also important we know what our children are doing in the digital world. Even a child posting on his status that he is on a family vacation can literally open the door to his home being broken into. And the dangers don’t just rest with Facebook, but also in other areas of the Internet, and even on cellphones, some of which can actually pinpoint the location of where a photo was taken. “People haven’t changed that much, but the Internet has amplified human behaviour that we’ve chosen to ignore,� Miller warned. We feel that it’s an issue that should be ignored no longer.

he Cariboo region has an abundance of opportunities to expand mineral exploration and extraction as a means to offset any falldown in economic activity resulting from the mountain pine beetle. Along with the expansion of the Gibraltar and Mount Polley mines, opportunities exist for both new and expanded hard rock MLA and placMusings er operations. Bob Simpson E ve r y mineral opportunity realized will create jobs and bring economic benefits to Cariboo communities. In order to realize this potential, however, mining must adhere to three basic principles: minimal ecological footprint, respect for First Nations rights and title, and maximum economic and social returns to British Columbians, who are the true owners of B.C.’s mineral resources. The evolving relationship between Mount Polley Mine and the Williams Lake Indian Band serves as an example of how companies can have productive relationships with First Nations. Spanish Mountain Gold provides another example. The government has also recently taken a leadership role in addressing the First Nations referral backlog in the Cariboo region by assigning a specific staff person to this function for placer operations. However, the mining community has informed me that they still have “permitting angst� — that the permitting process is still understaffed and economic opportunities in both mineral exploration and extraction are being lost as a result. The industry also has concerns about a growing skilled labour shortage and fears that without a plan to address this, more temporary foreign workers will need to be used, limiting the social and economic benefits that local communities will receive from mining activity. A concern I’ve also heard is the increasing regulation and fees imposed on mineral exploration and small to medium-placer operations. As we celebrate Mining Week, my hope is that the government will make sure the issues that may prevent us from realizing the full potential of mining in the Cariboo region are addressed, in partnership with miners, First Nations, and local communities. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

More Viewpoints

We seem to trust others to know what’s best for our children Editor: How we raise our children has been passed down to us from generations of parents with the advice that insurance companies and those running our schools should have growing influence over our lives. During the three-day strike parents were encouraged to keep their children at home since there would not be enough administra-

tors to see to the student’s needs, while adults could not volunteer because of liability issues. Not to worry; the barriers school board lawyers have erected will keep our children from harm in this unsupervised environment. The sports fields are also fenced for physical well being with disclaimer forms, insurance levies, and fearful coaches. A good Samaritan law where volunteers cannot be sued, except

for criminal acts, would allow parents to partake in their children’s education. But those in power believe there are no good Samaritans left in British Columbia. We acquiesce our influence to for-profit organizations and selfinterested officials for the best, for they have better judgement than we, the parents. Gregg Pritchard Williams Lake

Mine opposition creates party confusion Editor:   In a recent radio interview, Williams Lake’s provincial NDP candidate Charlie Wyse said that he had sent a note to Minister of Environment Peter Kent in support of First Nations drumming. I find nothing wrong with those who support people of various persuasions in following what they believe to be fair presentations; everyone should have the right to their opinions and Wyse expressed his on this subject. Wyse followed up his comments, however, regarding the First Nations drumming by expressing the view and the position of the NDP party regarding the development of the New Prosperity mine. Wyse said that the NDP, as expressed by leader Adrian Dix when he was here in Williams Lake last year, was against the development of the New Prosperity mine. A7

As the forest industry heads into decline, where many jobs in the greater community will be lost, I find that any position against the development of alternate industry that would in the process develop employment opportunities, whether it be the development of a new mine or otherwise, to be an astounding position for any political party to take. Taking a position against alternate employment sources, in the Williams Lake Area where the NDP is both generally speaking supported by labour and having at the same time a sincere hope of winning an election, unless I am wrong, is in reality shooting themselves in the foot. Unless the NDP party is supporting something on the horizon that could offer employment opportunities somewhat equal to what the New Prosperity mine is offering to this community, many people in the community

are going to be in a quandary as to whom or whom not to vote for in next year’s coming provincial election. It is good for the NDP to enunciate their position on issues of importance in communities such as Williams Lake. However, to be against something of this nature and to say it out loud at this time seems like very strange politics to me. I would say that those who speak up against job creation at a time like this and prior to an election will, without alternate development plans, create confusion within their own party. I for one see life as a matter of give and take. Being against something without offering something in exchange makes no economic sense.  Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Are you sticking around for the long weekend?

Log onto the Opinion section at to vote Last week’s question: Do you agree with city council’s decision to close the fire lane at the complex? YES: 34 per cent

NO: 66 per cent

As one thrives, another seems to struggle


he upcoming Victoria Day long-weekend heralds the start of the 2012 summer-vacation season and many British Columbians have hauled out (of storage) and cleaned up their camping and fishing gear in anticipation of heading off on their first outdoor get-a-way of the year. B.C. ranchers are OK with that but want the pleasure-seekers to be aware that the Cariboo rangelands are in desperate need of moisture. It’s really dry out there and


Cattle Fodder Liz Twan ranchers live in fear of a repeat of the 2010 summer of wildfires. The fires are all too- often ignited by human-error, so please recreate responsibly (douse campfires thoroughly/keep ciga-

rette butts within your vehicle). Oh, and could you please remember to re-latch the gate after you pass through? Something else to ponder, as one sector of the beef industry thrives (cattle producers) it appears another seems to struggle. Now, while cattle prices seem to have finally recovered or surpassed pre-BSE levels (paid to producers), the beef packing industry has been taking it on the chin, reporting losses instead of profits. However, a recent report

( Jane Gabbett) suggests a turnaround in that sector as well. “Beef packers (U.S.) made, on average, $6 per head (cattle) in the week ended — April 27, 2012 compared to a loss of about $45.74 per head a week-previous, and a loss of $96.48 a month ago as cattle prices have eased and both cutout and by-product values rose,� Gabbet says. This past week the cost of choice steers was down a bit again (from a week prior), adding up to about a five cent drop

per-hundred-weight over the past month, and since cattle sale prices trend the same, no matter where “the beef is,� our local cattle market reflected the decline. At the BC Livestock Co-op cattle auction last Thursday in Williams Lake, the yearling-cattle on offer sold slightly down from the month-prior, leaving some producers moaning (a little) in hindsight!

NEWS Committee recognizes truckers Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Local truckers were acknowledged May 11 at a Trucker Appreciation Day sponsored by Cariboo Chilcotin Truck Compliance Committee (CCTCC). Around 80 truckers were present along with representatives from the committee. West Fraser Timber named Jim Stewart as Outstanding Driver. Tolko Industries named Matt Guertzen as Rookie of the Year, and Greg Pilkington and Nola Toop for Outstanding Drivers of the Year. In addition, three former long-time drivers were acknowledged and honoured for their service — including Larry Patenaude, Doug Leik, and John Yuill. All three have passed away and will have renovated rooms at the Williams Lake Curling Rink named after them. “All of those three drivers were heavily involved in the truck associations over the years,” said Jerry Mooney, area supervisor for Tolko. It had been three years since the CCTCC held an appreciation lunch, committee member and fleet owner operator Bruce Coombs said. “With the downturn in the economy it hadn’t happened, but we felt it was important to bring it back again.” Committee member George Foisy, now retired from the Ministry of Transporation’s Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement, recalled the climate of trucking in the mid 1990s and the reason the committee was

They came up with a plan that drivers would only get compensated for legal loads; everything above would go into a fund that would go back into the community. “You think about the toll of overweight loads. Accidents, damage to roads, and overall safety. I remember attending four or five accidents a week. Now there are very few,” Foisy said. That local “thinking outside the box” caught the attention of the premier, and in 2004 the CCTCC garnered the Premier’s Award. Since then the program has expanded to Terrace and Prince Rupert and it is being tried in Prince George, Foisy said.

Today members of the committee include representatives from the Ministry of Transportation, RCMP, Ministry of Forests, ICBC, CVSE, local mills and WCB. Since its formation, relationships with all those agencies have really improved, Foisy said. The community has also benefited financially to the tune of almost $600,000 since 2009. In 2012 alone the Williams Lake Loghaulers Association donated $93,375 to the community through Tolko, and $29,000 was donated through the West Fraser Trucker’s Association. Before the awards, truckers were updated by Rick Welke, operations superintendent for West Fraser Timber, on the upcoming Logging Truck Driver Training program being offered through Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake campus, starting later this month. “We’re looking for drivers that will mentor in the program,” Welke said. “You will show the driver, and then as he or she progresses, you will let them take over.” Betty Turatus from TRU said there are 16

spaces available in the training program and that people who have already completed the Class 1 training are still eligible to apply because while they purse the safety tickets and airbrakes aspect of the training, it will open up funding for more people to pursue the Class 1. The program is geared to people who are unemployed, not currently receiving employment insurance, or have not had an EI claim in the last three years or in the case of maternity/parental five years, or to people who are employed but are low-skilled workers. The hope, Welke said, is to have people trained and eligible to work by winter. “They’ll go out again with a mentor in winter to see if they can handle the roads.” A heavy equipment operator forest harvesting program is also being offered in January and February 2013 through TRU in Williams Lake. It will include two weeks of theory/classroom component and seven weeks at a logging production site. For more photos, visit

Martial artists ready for nationals Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Eight Williams Lake martial artists will be competing for national titles this weekend in Montreal at the World Karate and Kickboxing Council’s National Championships. Abrie Kilian (men’s point fighting and continuous fighting), Glen Rogers (men’s continuous fighting), Katharina Koppe (women’s continuous fighting), Wes Nustad (men’s point fighting and continuous fighting), Tanna Lauriente (13-15 girls point fighting and continuous fighting), Carl Lam (16-17 boys point fighting), Adanna Nustad (12 and under girls kata, team kata and point fighting) and Macy Lainchbury (12 and under girls kata, team kata and point fighting), all from Williams Lake’s Shogun Martial Arts Academy, will represent the lakecity and Team B.C. at the event. The WKC National Championships start Friday and wrap up Sunday where competitors hope to land berths at the upcoming WKC World Championships, also being held this year in Montreal from Oct 2-7. In preparation for nationals two Shogun Martial Arts Academy students — Macy and Kilian — recently competed at tournaments. Another student, Raiden Lainchbury, 7, also brought home medals but because he’s not old enough isn’t allowed to attend nationals. In April Kilian travelled to Vancouver for the B.C. Open finishing with a silver medal in continuous fighting and a silver medal in point fighting. Kilian said the tournament

Shogun Martial Arts students (back) Abrie Kilian, (front from left) Macy Lainchbury, 10, and brother Raiden Lainchbury, 7, recently competed at tournaments in Vancouver and Smithers, respectively. was great preparation for nationals. “It was a wonderful tournament and very well set up,� Kilian said. “I got silver in both continuous fighting (75 to 85 kilograms) and silver in

point fighting (70 to 95 kilograms). They had to combine weight classes in point fighting. The guy I fought in the final was a giant.� Kilian, originally from a small

town in South Africa, said he’s looking forward to the opportunity to represent Williams Lake at nationals. “For me it’s very nice to give my support for Williams Lake in such a manner,� he said. “Coming from South Africa I’ve got such respect for people from small towns who go kick butt against the bigger cities. I’ve always said a neighbour’s success is my success and the other way around and I think that’s something that’s shared in Williams Lake. “I would like to have Williams Lake show that, and I hope everybody that goes and represents B.C. all do well.� More recently on May 12 Macy and Raiden joined close to 80 other martial artists in Smithers to compete at the Battle of Shoguns — an invitational put on by B.C. Shogun Martial Arts Academies. Raiden won a gold medal in the 7-8 boy’s point fighting and a silver medal in 7-8 boy’s kata. Raiden said his last match was his favourite. “I had three matches in point fighting and won them all,� he said. “But my last one was the toughest because I was against a really good guy and only won by one point.� Raiden’s sister Macy, 10, finished with a gold medal in 9-10 girls kata, plus competed in a point fighting match losing by just one point in overtime. Also at the tournament athletes had the opportunity to watch demonstrations from Team B.C. members. Additionally at nationals, Williams Lake Shogun Martial Arts Academy Sensei Sheldon Lainchbury will travel with the team as a coach.

Kids Running for Kids continue to train for trek Angela Manning Special to The Tribune Kids Running for Kids are busier than ever preparing for their upcoming journey from Williams Lake to BC Children’s Hospital. Fundraising efforts have nearly doubled the original goal set out by this group of keen runners. The kids themselves have non-stop energy, training at least three times a week and displaying such passion for their objective to help sick kids in B.C. Last week members of KRFK introduced themselves at the city council meeting. Adriane Kennedy, Gabrielle Pierce, and Jaxon Passeri touched the hearts of council in their Powerpoint pre-

sentation explaining the purpose of KRFK. Mayor Kerry Cook and council were impressed with the group’s progress and commended them for being good ambassadors of Williams Lake. Many youth in the Cariboo lounge on Sunday mornings, but not this group. You can find the 60-plus members of KRFK at the Williams Lake Secondary School track every Sunday morning, training for covering the kilometres between Williams Lake and Vancouver. The group uses a walk-to-run program similar to that of KidSport. Just when you’d think they’ve shown enough exertion rounding the track, the group then move on to sprinting.

Sunday mornings not only focus on physical training; it is important for the families involved to become a team. The group end their sessions by playing various icebreaker games to get to know each other better. Soon, they will be spending eight days together travelling and camping in communities from Williams Lake south. The group had initially planned on running relay style on the actual highways from Williams Lake to BC Children’s Hospital. After much deliberation and remembering our main concern — safety — the executive has decided to revamp the original route. See NEW Page A12

Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Nearing the end of its competitive season, Williams Lake Gymnastics Club members are already setting large goals for next year. Mike Stinson, coach of the WLGC, said it’s great to see and he hopes to continue to notice improvement in the club’s athletes. “Next year is going to be a big one for us,” Stinson said. “We want to represent our zone at the B.C. Championships next year. We did well this year so the group made a goal to be on the podium for all around next year — not just for individual. “It’s good that they’re looking forward to next season. For them to set that for themselves, it was great to see that there’s some dedication being shown.” The club recently returned from the combined Prince George Invitational and the Zone 8 Championships May 5-6 at the Prince George Gymnastics Club with multiple strong results.

Teammates Carson Coldwell, Chloe Lutters, Thea Lutters, Abayah Hunt, Michaela Newberry and Samantha McKee also scored

some solid marks. Newberry finished first overall on beam in level two 12 and over women’s gymnastics, and McKee took second overall in vault. Chloe finished third in vault and fifth on bars in level one argo, while her sister, Thea, finished ninth on floor. Abayah also took 10th on vault in a category featuring 18 gymnasts. Coldwell used a strong floor routine to capture third in level

one 12 and over women’s gymnastics. “They’ve come a long ways since I came here a year and a half ago,” Stinson said. “They’ve come together more as a team ... The boys and girls teams are becoming one team, so that’s good to see. I was impressed.” The club now has one more meet, June 16-17 in Smithers, before finishing its competitive season.

Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo goes May 26-27 Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo returns to the Eagle View Equestrian Centre in Williams Lake May 26-27. Horse lovers of all disciplines are invited to participate in events or just come out and watch.

There will be a sampling of equestrian events throughout the weekend in three different arenas, trade booths, a concession and a whole lot more. “It will be a jampacked family weekend,”

says Lori Rankin. Saturday’s events include jumping demonstrations, dressage, driving demonstrations Hoof N Woof, gymkhana games, and reining demonstrations. Sunday’s events inTribune file photo

Williams Lake’s James Allan rides Sprocket, a twoyear-old previously unhandled colt during last year’s trainer’s challenge at Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo. Trainers were given four onehour sessions with their colts. This year’s event goes May 26-27 at the Eagle View Equestrian Centre. Spectators are invited to attend.

clude cutting demonstrations, cattle sorting, buckle series cattle sorting, bridle-less demonstrations, jumping, and champion versatility

horse presentations. The versatility competition features both English and Western events with each horse receiving points for placing in

each of four events, accumulating to determine the champion. Both days there will be trade booths to visit, a horse sale barn, tack sale,

concession and a kids corral. Events run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day May 26 and 27. Admission is by donation.










New route, same goal Instead of occupying the busy highways and uncontrollable factors involved, the group will run just as many kilometers, if not more, by setting up in communities along the route. KRFK will partake in the Williams Lake Stampede Parade, and then arrange at the WLSS track for the afternoon. There the runners will run the track while KRFK family members and helpers will have booths set up. July 1 the group will join the 108 Heritage Site Canada Day Celebrations, running the lakeside trails. Similar running tracks and displays are being confirmed along the itinerary. All the while, mileage run will be re-

corded and tallied until the group reaches the hospital. The athletes will have more opportunity to run further each day and will bring much more awareness and community involvement. We suspect the total kilometres run will surpass the original plan. We thank our donors for understanding our change of plans, though keeping our main goal of raising funds to the hospital a number one priority. As the weeks progress until KRFK hit the road, they will be more visible. This weekend, a KRFK family is joining the World of Wheels Car Show spreading the mission in Peachland. On Saturday, May 26 the group is having a garage sale at Mountview Elementary School. There will be a concession with hot

dogs, drinks and goodies, as well as a table for buying baked goods. Tables are $15 each or two for $25 and can be booked by contacting Carrie Knox at 250-392-7449 or If you have unwanted items you would like to donate to the sale items will be accepted at the school on Friday, May 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Again, KRFK wishes to thank the Cariboo for such generous support thus far. The group is determined to make a big statement in the province and cannot do this without your assistance. If you can help KRFK in their journey, please e-mail or read more at www.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Work Together As people approach end-of-life, it is increasingly important for pathways of communication to remain open between family and all professionals and volunteers involved in a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continuum of care. The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association has developed the theme:

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Work Together! Support networks are there to help! Health care teams, caregivers, volunteers, family and friends are valuable resources, keep them in the loop.â&#x20AC;? Kate McDonough, Executive Director of Central Cariboo Hospice Palliative Care Society in Williams Lake states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the mission of the Society to provide a lay volunteer service dedicated to supporting those persons approaching the end of life, or those with a diagnosis of terminal illness, as well as respite, support and bereavement followup services for their families and friends, in the Williams Lake area. Our hospice volunteers and staff work cooperatively with Home Care Nursing, physicians, Home

these volunteers, and the numbers of patients needing the services has increased. The Society is funded partially by a Community Gaming Grant from the Province of B.C., a grant from the City of Williams Lake, donations from the community and fundraising. Three part-time staff coordinate and support the volunteers, who are really the â&#x20AC;&#x153;heartâ&#x20AC;? of the organization. Sharon Vignjevic, Volunteer Services Coordinator, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Volunteering for Hospice is a unique and rewarding experience. Volunteers are privileged to work with clients, their families and caregivers at a very vulnerable time on their lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey, providing a listening ear and compassionate support.â&#x20AC;?

the road less lonely Bereavement support is available Have you ever heard the comment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She just needs to get over it and move on?â&#x20AC;? This could be a comment made in response to someone who is grieving the loss of a loved one. People mean well, but their tendency is to want to fix the person who is grieving. However, grief

and emotional pain cannot be â&#x20AC;&#x153;fixed.â&#x20AC;? There is no â&#x20AC;&#x153;fixingâ&#x20AC;? a broken heart. There is no time limit to grieving. So how do we help those who are grieving? Instead of negating the emotional pain and grief, we can create a safe place for it to be expressed and heard.

Central Cariboo Hospice Palliative Care Society offers bereavement support to help survivors cope with their loss and to facilitate the natural grief process. They offer a tenweek bereavement support group that recognizes that sharing is an important part of the healing process.

They also offer individual support to those who are grieving and have a library which contains a variety of books, CDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, audio tapes and videos available for loan. Phone Central Cariboo Hospice (250-392-5430) to learn more about our current bereavement support.

Who would speak for you? What if you found yourself in the hospital and were unable to communicate? Who would speak for you? Most Canadians have not talked to their family or to their doctors about their desires regarding health care treatments should they be unable to communicate. By failing to plan in advance, people risk being subjected to treatments they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wish to receive, put undo stress on family members, and place added pressure on the health care system. All of this can be

avoided by preparing an advance care plan. An advance care plan is a written, legally binding document instructing health care professionals about what health care a person wishes to accept or

decline. The most important part of advance care planning is having a conversation with your Substitute Decision Maker, someone who will speak on your behalf and make decisions for

you. Your advance care plan would only be used in the event that you become incapable of consenting to or refusing treatment or other care. Patients who have end of life conversations with

health care professionals and family members are much more likely to be satisfied with their care, require fewer aggressive medical interventions at the end of life and are more likely to take advantage of hos-

pice resources or die at home. This is a difficult topic which many people would prefer to avoid, but there is a helpful resource guide avail-

able called: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Voice: Expressing My Wishes for Future Health Care Treatmentâ&#x20AC;? which can be downloaded at

Heavy Metal Rocks provides hands-on experience COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK

Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer More than 30 people were involved in delivering the Heavy Metal Rocks program in Williams Lake May 2 to 12. The program gave 16 boys and two girls in grades 11 and 12 handson experience running heavy industrial machinery. School District 27, WorkSafeBC, local industry, and government representatives teamed up to provide the program. Participating students interested in a career in the construction industry were selected for the program through an application and interview process, says Gordon Armour, School District 27â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, coordinator for transition, training and trades programs. If the school district had to put the course on alone Armour says it would cost more than $600,000 but thanks to involvement by local business the costs to the district are minimal. Even the diesel fuel and flood lights for night security were provided by industry, Armour says. The program started with the students taking orientation sessions in the classroom along with industrial first-aid and work-place safety training. On site, Fortis and BC Hydro started by provided demonstrations on what can happen if equipment accidentally hits a power line or buried gas line, reinforcing directives to find out before you dig where gas, water and other lines are buried and taking care when using heavy equipment around power lines and poles. Then over a two-and-a-half-day period each of the students was given an hour-and-a-half of hands-on experience on each of 16 pieces of heavy equipment loaned for the program by the participating businesses who also provided the experienced equipment operators as trainers and supervisors. Armour says the students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just push dirt and rocks around for the experience either. They are doing work with a purpose to reclaim the exhausted Centennial gravel pit site on Bond Lake Road. He says the work to smooth out the site and return it to a natural state will be completed in about six years by successive groups of students participating in the Heavy Metal Rocks program. Bucket truck, crane truck, skid steers, excavator, mini excavators, loaders, dump truck, dozer, packer, grader, water truck, back hoes of various sizes and other equipment could be seen busily working around the site with students at the controls and mentors close at hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent.

Jesse says he is very mechanically inclined and it is helpful to know how to use a piece of heavy equipment if you have to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The safety skills I have learned I can carry around with me because

they apply to everything pretty much,â&#x20AC;? Jesse says. Ryley Gardner a Grade 12 student participating in the program is also an ACE-IT student in the heavy duty mechanic program who works part-time for Peterson Contracting as part of his high school pre-apprenticeship training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really enjoying it and learn-

Armour says the students participating in the program worked a close to normal work day being picked up at 7 a.m. and bused to the site and working from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. About 30 trainers, supervisors and other support people participated in delivering the program including members of the Lions Club who provided lunch on site for the participants, and on site security at night. Paul Allan, superintendent of human resources at Mount Polley, and John Purdy, senior foreman of mine production at Gibraltar Mine, also helped with the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already arguing about who will get one of the students,â&#x20AC;? Purdy jokes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its a great program.â&#x20AC;? Purdy says students who have never been around heavy equipment before get to try out all types of machinery and see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out there in the way of future careers. Allan says one of the trainers provided by Mount Polley for the Heavy Metal Rocks program took a similar program 20 years ago and is now a foreman at Mount Polley. Steve Rothman, Ministry of Mines senior health and safety officer for South Central B.C. along with Mark Harper from WorkSafe B.C. were also both on site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an excellent program, Rothman says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of well trained people working with us.â&#x20AC;? Harper adds: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of students donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they want to do when they graduate. This helps them to make up their minds. If for no other reason it is good work experience and exposes them to a whole new environment.â&#x20AC;? To view more pictures, see our slideshow at

Naghtaneqed celebrates Culture Week Sage Birtchwater Special to The Tribune

Kaleena Tanis, 16, (right) helps Harley Billy, 6, with a traditional beading project at the Naghtaneqed School Culture Week festivities in Nemiah earlier this month. The whole Xeni Gwet’in community gets involved with the culture week activities.

Sierra William, 9, and Nellie Lulua, 9, have fun making traditional bannock at the Naghtaneqed Culture Week celebrations.

The Naghtaneqed School in Nemiah celebrated its 25th annual Culture Week early this month. The school’s 35 children, teachers and staff and the whole Xeni Gwet’in community gets involved in passing on and preserving age-old traditions. This includes a surprising list of activities: making traditional toys; camping at various sites around Xeni Gwet’in territory; building and using sweatlodges; making gill nets and fishing with gill nets; making gaff hooks; cutting up, cooking and drying fish; skinning deer; cutting, drying, smoking and cooking meat; tanning hides; sewing buckskin; beading; rope braiding; digging wild potatoes; horse management; horse shoeing; basket making; bannock making; gathering traditional medicines; playing lehal; drumming and singing. Over the years various schools from around School District 27 have come out to share Culture Week with the Naghtaneqed students. Students prefer holding culture week early in May to coincide with the first harvest of mountain potatoes on the south-fac-

ing microclimate slopes at the base of Nemiah Mountain. Principal Joan Simmons has been teaching at Naghtaneqed for 16 years. She says Culture Week is less formal than the regular classroom setting, but its educational value is very high. “It helps me build a better rapport with the kids,” she says. “They always teach me. You sort of become a student with them.” Over the years she has watched students who have gone through Culture Week return to the school to teach the next generation. “It’s come full circle. Students who have mastered some of our activities are coming back to teach others.” She says one of the key functions of Culture Week is the sense of belonging it creates for the children. “We are proud of that and want to celebrate it with our children.” Former chief Roger William, now a Xeni Gwet’in councillor and a Cariboo Regional District board member, says he had only been out of high school two years when Culture Week began in 1987. “Twenty-five years is a long time. Culture is so important.” This year William instructed a drumming workshop with Jessica Alphonse and Patrick Lulua.

“They call the Cariboo home” Brenda Beaton finds strength in family and Cariboo friendships Brenda Beaton Special to The Tribune It was the summer of 1973. My father, looking for adventure, decided we would leave Alberta. He borrowed his oldest son’s truck and canopy. With an eight-by-19-foot travel trailer in tow, we set out for B.C. Divorced for many years, Dad had six children to deal with. Both my sister Morgan and brother Doug were working in Alberta. In the cab of the truck we packed in like sardines, all four of us girls. I was 16 and miserable leaving my friends in Sundre. Sister Colleen was 13 going on 30, and sisters Tracy and Lisa (twins) were seven and yappy. Our dad Charles, nicknamed Doc, was a very patient man. Camping along the way, we stopped for a couple days at Canim Lake. Back on Highway 97, rain poured down as we came along to Williams Lake. Raindrops dancing on the water, lush green hills, a mist over the lake, it just took a hold of me. I will never forget the feeling of peace at that moment. Motoring onto Quesnel, we visited with Dad’s brother Norman. He was the editor of the town’s newspaper. We set up our little trailer at Ten Mile Lake. Dad had initially wanted to live in Prince Rupert. Norman told him about the openpit mine a McLeese Lake. My father was a road builder from the time he left the Navy after the war. He could do anything with heavy equipment. We took a drive to Gibraltar Mines. He went into the office, and 30 minutes later came out with a job. After the last few years in Alberta, making $325 a month, this new job was three to four times more money and it felt like we hit the mother lode. We moved to Freemans Trailer Park and set up our piddly

Brenda Beaton (nee Flaherty) has lived in the Cariboo since 1973, after moving from Alberta. little home, three miles from the hamlet. Jean and Frank Grimards owned the Oasis Restaurant, a motel, and cabins on the shore. They took an interest in our family, as did the Goyettes’ at their store, along with the rest of the community. Not too many people would see such a devoted father. One of the first treasures we found was Jean’s butter tart, oh so good! We had a ritual at the cafe a couple of times a week to savour the flavour, and get the local news. My brothers arrived from Alberta, securing work at the mine and staying at the camp. Colleen and I had a lucrative business. We were the resident babysitters for all the families with children in the park. Autumn was showing her colours, so Dad traded the trailers for a brand-new, 25-foot travel trailer, and we built a

porch next to it. We were warm and happy, most of the time, when we girls weren’t at each other’s throats. The twins went to school in McLeese Lake and we took the bus to Williams Lake. In late spring, when Dad had weekends off, we took drives around the Cariboo. We fished at Polley, Dugan, and Tyee lakes in Morgan’s new 16-foot canoe fitted with pontoons and a small motor for trolling. We got stuck trying to get in and out at Jacksons’ Hole. It was the best of times. Summer, yahoo! I graduated and got a job at the mine. It was a family affair. I was a warehouse parts person, first of three girls hired for labour. At the time, Williams Lake had only steel-toed boots for men. I had to buy the smallest size, a snoot boot. My nickname was Boots, of Five Foot Two. The best part of my job was the money, $4.50 an hour, overtime, and the eye

candy all around me! I blushed easily when the men came to the counter wanting a part. Giving me a bogus order, I’d write out the request — 100 feet of shoreline. When I looked up at him, he burst out laughing and then I got it. All the rented cabins at the Oasis were brimming with good lookin’ men. My brothers rented one, and we practically lived there. We hitched a ride on their days off, and we stayed till dark. It was so much fun, lots of sun, swimming, and fishing at the creek. Love was in the air for my brothers with their girlfriends, and for my first boyfriend. Doug bought a speed boat. Water skiing for whomever wanted to do it. They mounted a toilet on the float. Sitting on thew can holding the ropes, we talked Dad into buying yet another, bigger trailer. A 12-by48 replaced the other, one foot at a time. I married my boyfriend, Al Beaton, a miner from Ontario. Dad had to sign for me because

I was still 17 years old. We put our brand new 12-by-60 furnished trailer in the park, 100 feet from my family. The décor, deluxe harvest gold, brown, and orange. Yikes! (I had a dress in the same colours, and if I stood in front of the curtains I was almost invisible, with only my face and my legs showing). Two years later, all of my family went back to Alberta. Al and I moved to Williams Lake and bought our house. We reared our two sons, born with severe disabilities, with love. Thirty years into marriage Al learned he had cancer. He fought the battle but it took his life. Seven years later I remain here with my sons in their group home, four doors from mine. I love it here. The Cariboo is a way of life. The scenery is amazing, but it’s the good, hard-working people, great friendships, people on the street who are quick to smile, and those who take the time to help each other. That’s what makes us strong.

DALLYN, TAB Tab was born on Oct. 23, 1969 to Lorne and Gail Dallyn in Williams Lake, BC.and passed away on April 29, 2012 in W.L. B. C. Tab was a fun loving, caring and thoughtful person. He was always willing to help family, friends and even strangers. In fact he would go out of his way to do so. When someone needed him Tab was there. As was evident the past few years when he stood up and took over the responsibility of being the primary caregiver for his mother. Tab was strong spirited and loved to be free. He enjoyed his toys like the quads, watercrafts and snowmobiles. He loved the power and speed of these toys and was always modifying these units to try to get a little more out of them. Tab loved his son Damian and was very proud of him. He cherished their time together, whether it was quadding, snowmobiling or just a passion for their toys and music. Tab’s good sense of humor, his infectious laugh and teasing will be sadly missed by family and friends.

Warren Ford 1949 ~ 2012

On May 10, 2012 Mr. Warren Henry Ford of Kamloops passed away peacefully at the age of 62 years. Warren is survived by his loving family: father L.S. Ford; brother Jim (Melanie); nephews Lucas and Stuart and many cousins and friends. He was predeceased by his mother Ida, his special friend Mary-Ann and four legged companion “Scamp”. Warren was born in Kamloops on May 26, 1949. He spent his early years working for Forestry at Bowron Lake building portage trails or working fire suppression. He worked many years in the auto parts business, finishing his working career with the highways contractors in Williams Lake. He was an avid car collector throughout his life. When he wasn’t building models or restoring his Mopars he could be found spending time with his family camping. His fishing lessons to his nephews will never be forgotten. He still found time to volunteer wherever he was: Royal Canadian Legion, Boy Scouts, Kinsmen and both Williams Lake and Kamloops Street Rod Clubs. Members of any car clubs are encouraged to attend and join the procession. A Celebration of Warren’s life will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2012 at 1:00 pm in the Schoening Funeral Chapel, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops with Pastor Don Maione officiating.
