Shift in running of Big White and Silver Star ski resorts

Curtis Rd. access to campus for cyclists cut off Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The president of Kelowna and Area Cycling Coalition says his group is disappointed with a B.C. Supreme Court ruling that bars cyclists from using a privately owned extension off Curtis Road to access the UBCO campus. Landon Bradshaw said he had hoped something could have been worked out between the cyclists and area residents who went to court claiming years of use by cyclists and walkers, who they feel have made the private easement a public road to UBCO, was an intrusion and an invasion of their privacy. “We’re quite disappointed in several different ways,” said Bradshaw. “Not the least of which is that there will not be a safe route to the university.” He said there are safety concerns with using the one remaining route, Highway 97, because of traffic and the condition of the shoulder on the traffic flyover that now crosses the highway. Last Friday, the Kelowna lawyer for the residents, Tom Smithwick, announced the ruling by the B.C. Supreme Court, saying the court action was launched because residents were upset that their private “driveway” was being used by students, staff and others at the university as a public road. “The easement grants only a private right of way, and the respondent (UBCO) has no right thereunder to hold out to any person that the right of way is other than a private right of way on private land nor to allow any person to use the right of way in a manner inconsistent with the private right of way,” said the court ruling. And it added: “For greater clarity, the use of the easement as a private right of way does not include use of it for field trips to Robert Lake, nor does it include use of it as part of a running race course. Further, it does not include using it for exercise by walking or cycling.” The court said it will be up to the university to take “reasonable steps” to ensure, the any extent possible, that the easement is not used in such a manner. The university had contended the easement could be used by students who walked or cycled on the route. A few years ago a gate was installed by the residents but the courts had ruled it must be left open.



HEALTHY KIDS DAY… The annual free event put on by the Okanagan YMCA-YWCA at the Kelowna Family Y in Rutland last Sunday attracted a large crowd of kids able to take part in free activities and snacks while their parents learned more about available resources to help raise healthy kids. Some of those activities included watching acrobatics in the air (top photo), contributing to a giant Healthy Kids Day banner (lower left) or creating the popular Capital News Do-Dah Birds (lower right).

The Okanagan’s two biggest ski mountains will no longer function as one. Big White and Silver Star have “severed their ties,” said Michael J. Ballingall, senior vicepresident of Big White. “They’re acting as independent companies right now.” Ballingall was tight lipped on what prompted the split, saying it was for “personal family reasons.” “There’s nothing untoward here,” he said. “The presidents remain the same—they’re brother and sister—and everybody is going to go about their business…the two teams will still work closely.” Internally, the change will mean smoother operations, in terms of diminished paperwork. Kelowna residents should only notice that dual mountain passes are off the table. In the months to come, however, the change may take another form. Ballingall said he expects to see each distinct

Club Penguin co-founder inspires 2012 graduating class


Okanagan College’s 2012 Honorary Fellow, Lane Merrifield, didn’t excel in post-secondary school. At last Saturday’s convocation ceremony, the former C-average student told Okanagan College graduates he never would have imagined that he would be asked to give inspiring words to those who likely earned higher grades than he did. “I spent many of my younger years just trying to get through,” said Merrifield. “I didn’t fit in very well with the traditional system. “Back when I was

in school, inventing new ways of doing things was called ‘cutting corners;’ creating characters and stories was called ‘daydreaming.’” Although Merrifield was a less-than-ideal pupil, the success he found after education is what led Okanagan College to name him the 2012 Honorary Fellow: An award that is given to those who have made significant contributions to the college, the Okanagan Valley, the province or the nation. Merrifield co-founded Club Penguin in 2005 out of a desire to provide a safe online space for children around the world to connect. The company grew significantly and was ac-

Merrifield now serves as executive vice-president of Disney Online Studios, where he oversees Disney’s virtual worlds and connected games.

“I found my joy. I found my muse, my element. I was lucky enough to discover exactly what I feel like I was created to do—then I did it with all my heart,” Merrifield told the OC graduates.

“That’s what I believe has enabled me to find success.” The Club Penguin cofounder urged graduates to steer away from chasing the dollars until they have found what they are

passionate about. “Before you dash into that new career or next level of education, please make sure you’ve found your element,” Merrifield told the graduates. “You’ll know when

you’ve found it, because not only will you become incredibly successful at it, more importantly you will love doing it. Work won’t feel like work.” wpaterson


Rain in the forecast offers weather recipe for potential flooding

Significant rainfall forecast for the Central Okanagan this week could result in rising water levels in area creeks and streams. For today and last night, up to 30 millimeters of rain was forecast as possible for our area. As a result, the Cen-

tral Okanagan Regional Emergency Program is advising those property owners living in lowlying areas near creeks to remain alert and take steps to protect their properties in case water levels rise quickly. Information and pamphlets on flood pre-

paredness including a recommended method for sandbag diking are available from the Regional District of Central Okanagan office (1450 KLO Rd.) and the main City of Kelowna fire hall on Enterprise Way as well as on the Regional Emergency Operation Centre web-

sitewww.cordemergency. ca and the Emergency Management BC website: Local officials will continue to monitor levels and conditions in area creeks as they have since the spring runoff began in April.

Anyone noticing a potential problem or flooding concern in the Central Okanagan is asked to call the Regional Fire Dispatch at: 250-469-8801. Sandbags are available at local fire halls for any property owner facing imminent danger from flooding.

At this time of year, Central Okanagan residents are asked to use caution around all local rivers, creeks and lakes. People are reminded that water levels may rise unexpectedly and they and their pets should stay safely back from creek banks, which may be slip-

pery or subject to erosion from the spring runoff. In the event of an emergency and activation of the Central Okanagan Emergency Operation Centre (EOC), the latest information will be available online at the new EOC website

Appeal of court Overpass campus access delay has tied city’s hands ruling pondered Cyclists from A1

Smithwick said he hoped all the parties involved will respect the rights of the others and, in future, continue in a good neighbourly fashion. “Curtis Road residents are delighted to have this behind them and request that all parties stop the

trespass upon their private lands,” Smithwick said. Meanwhile, the city said some relief may be coming for cyclists trying to get to the UBCO campus from the east side of Highway 97, in the Rutland area. But, at best, it will be the fall before work starts on a new $3.5-million

path and railway overpass to get them safely to the university. And, it will also depend on the city gaining the approval of CP Rail for the project because the overpass would be built over the existing railroad tracks. Kelowna regional transportation man-

You can create a lasting legacy of love for all of BC’s children.

ager Ron Westlake said plans for the project have been drawn up, money set aside and the province and university are on board. The overpass approval is being sought through the province, said Westlake. Victoria has said it feels there would should be no problem getting the railroad company to approve the overpass because it would be the same height as the existing Ellison road overpass that takes Highway 97 over the railroad tracks. The bike overpass would be built three metres from the highway overpass. But while it will help Rutland area cyclists, Westlake said riders from the Glenmore area would still have to cross Highway 97 at Adam’s Court to connect to the bike path to UBCO. Bradshaw said his group worked with the city on the planning of the new pathway and overpass last year and said he was disappointed work on construction has yet

to start. The city does plan to start building the first phase of John Hindle Drive, from Glenmore Road to the Kelowna landfill, this year, with the aim of having it open to traffic by the summer of 2013. But the city has said it does not have the money to build any additional phases to take the road to UBCO in the immediate future. Doug Gilchrest, acting city general manager of corporate sustainability, said the city has not taken a position on the court ruling because it considered it a matter between to outside parties. He said the ruling does not change the city’s position that the multimodal transportation needs in the area around UBCO need to be addressed. He said that is especially true for cycling routes as cycling is no longer simply recreational. It is now a legitimate form of transportation for many people.

It’s too soon to name winners and losers in the B.C. Supreme Court’s decision on a controversial access point to UBC Okanagan, say university representatives. “We just need to understand who the users are who have a legitimate use of the (Curtis Road) right-of-way,” said Bud Mortenson. “It’s unlikely it will be everyone but it’s also unlikely it will be no one.” Mortenson explained the court reiterated that the Curtis Road easement is a private right of way, and indicated that the university shouldn’t be holding it out as anything other than a private right-of-way. “And we haven’t done that anyway,” said Mortenson. That said, the court also upheld the view that UBCO has some rights to use the extension off Curtis Road that’s used to access the campus, in a portion of the decision that’s being closely scrutinized by the university counsel. “If we go back in time to the original property, there were a number of parcels of land and one of them is Lot Six,” he said, explaining that Lot Six is a 13-acre chunk of land in the southwest corner of the campus, where a num-

ber of university amenities now exist. “It was consumed by the overall campus when they consolidated.” The controversial Curtis Road easement is registered against that 13 acre piece of land, and anyone who has official cause to be there, is allowed to traverse the pathway—and that’s where the confusion comes along. Among those who may still be allowed to use the pathway are cyclists riding to and from classes taking place in that specific lot. There are also amenities for students in that area, such as the bike racks. “Does that constitute proper use?” said Mortenson. “We think so, but we’re not sure.” Another area of confusion is how to enforce the change. The courts upheld an earlier decision that the resident-erected gate blocking campus access must remain open, so Mortenson said that leaves the university to an education campaign. “As soon as we have a solid handle on what we’re able to do, we’ll be communicating that out as widely as we can,” he said. They’re also holding off on making a decision to appeal the decision or not.

Anti-abortion message plastered across touring vans Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A group of anti-abortion activists want to stop legal abortions by returning to the beginning of the battle—recreating the 1970 Abortion Caravan, which launched an 18year fight to win women full control of their own reproductive health. On Monday, the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform brought two large cube vans through Kelowna outfitted with two-metre by 20-metre posters graphically illustrating fetuses they say have been aborted. “We hope that people are more bothered that abortions are actually hap-

pening in Kelowna than they’re bothered by the image,” said Stephanie Gray, executive director of the CCBR. Gray noted that it took the feminist movement 18 years to successfully win women the right to a legal abortion in Canada—a right earned in 1988 with a Supreme Court of Canada ruling in the Morgentaler case—and as such the group has devised an 18-year plan to end abortions in Canada. The Morgentaler ruling determined women must have the right to an abortion under section seven of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which protects the individual’s auton-

Dr. Henry Morgentaler fought for a woman’s right to control their own reproductive health in two separate cases, this second after opening a clinic with two other doctors in contravention of laws dictating women needed certification from a medical panel in order to obtain an abortion and only a certified hospital could conduct the procedure.

Sports field maintenance schedule underway Have you ever wondered how Kelowna’s sports fields stay in good condition and ready for you to enjoy your favourite sports? The city’s park services department provides turf management services for all city parks and fields used by sports teams and clubs, schools and the general public. All fields are reviewed regularly to determine if repairs or maintenance is needed to keep the fields in the best possible condition for play. “As we work through our maintenance schedule, field closures will be required,” said Ted Sophonow, parks, beaches and sport fields supervisor for the city. “We ask everyone to help our crews out by staying off fields that are closed

for maintenance.” Field closures typically last three weeks and it involves sprinklers operating during the day for the grass seed to grow. Signs are posted at the site to inform the public of the field closure. Using fields that are closed for maintenance can cause damage that will affect the turf’s quality. With ongoing foot traffic, poor turf density can cause safety issues during the season, requiring longer closure periods. Sports fields currently under maintenance: • Parkinson sports field #10 (Soccer) closed until June 17; • All sport fields will remain open while being fertilized until June 17.

New pizza shop gives jumbo donation to KGH Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Jumbo Pizza held its grand opening Saturday and generously gave proceeds from the first three hours of business to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation. A total of $500 was raised from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the new pizza shop, which is located at 2189 Springfield Rd. According to owner Tejpal Randhawa, the business felt strongly about wanting to assist the hospital. “Everyone has to go to the hospital once or more in a lifetime. The hospital is doing a lot for us, I thought we should do

something (for the hospital),” said Randhawa. The Kelowna store is the third Jumbo Pizza to open in B.C.—the others are located in Chilliwack and Cloverdale. Randhawa said he likes the central location and figures that it will allow the business to deliver pizzas quickly to most parts of the city. The owner noted he has received very positive feedback from those who have gotten the chance to try the pizza. “Our chef has 10 years of experience; we have a very good recipe.” Randhawa said he hopes to make the fundraiser an annual event.


Old Age Security changes affecting future seniors


he Old Age Security pension is a monthly benefit available to most Canadians 65 years of age or over. However, the 2012 federal budget included provisions for changes to future OAS income for seniors. The changes do not affect anyone who is 54 or older as of March 31, 2012, while those born on or after Feb 1, 1962 will be eligible for OAS at age 67. Those born between April 1, 1958, and Jan. 31, 1962, will be eligible between ages 65 and 67. The eligibility age for OAS and Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) will start in April 2023, and will be fully implemented by January 2029. In line with the increase in the OAS/GIS eligibility age, the ages at which the allowance and the allowance for the survivor are provided will also gradually increase from age 60 to 64 (under current rules) to age 62 o 66 starting in April 2023. This change does not affect anyone who is 49 years of age or older as of March 31, 2012. Many Canadians in the future will continue to work to age 67 if they financially need to; or supplement income with personal savings or other company pensions prior to age 67. Many 65-year-olds are fit to work, and many want to continue working.


CHEF MAJOR DHILLON puts a couple of pizzas through the oven in the kitchen of Jumbo Pizza. The pizza shop


Doreen Smith The past December saw the federal government eliminate the mandatory retirement age, which in most cases was based on age 65. The average amount of OAS paid monthly now to Canadians over the age of 65 is $510.21, an amount indexed quarterly. The maximum annual OAS pension is currently $6,481. The maximum annual GIS benefit is $8,788 for single seniors and $11,654 for couples. For those wishing to work longer, the government will allow for the voluntary deferral of the OAS pension, for up to five years, starting on July 1, 2013. This gives individuals the option to defer receiving their OAS pension to a later time to subsequently receive a higher, adjusted pension. This increase is 0.6 per cent for each month of deferred pension. The government has confirmed the Canada Pension Plan is financially sustainable for at least the next 75 years at the current contribution rate of 9.9 per cent of pensionable earnings. No changes to premiums are proposed

at this time. You can access information on monthly government programs at the website Canadians are living longer and healthier lives. In 1970, life expectancy was age 69 for men and age 76 for women. Today, it is 79 for men and 83 for women. We are living about seven years longer than we did when the OAS pension was introduced in 1952. Canadians are living longer and hopefully may enjoy working longer with the increased age for OAS and GIS eligibility. The OAS is the single, largest federal government program. The changes announced in Economic Action Plan 2012 are necessary to ensure the OAS program remains on a sustainable path, according to the federal government. The proposed changes to the age of eligibility for the OAS program will not affect anyone who is currently receiving benefits.

Another bad move for RCMP


here has been much outrage over the RCMP decision to ship a Mountie who abused his position as head of a polygraph unit in Edmonton to B.C. Don Ray exposed himself, had sex with subordinates, and kept a well-stocked liquor cabinet in his crime lab. His punishment for all of this was to be demoted to sergeant from staff-sergeant, lose 10 days pay and come to B.C. From a public relations per-

spective, it was like spraying a wasp nest with insect repellent – in the middle of the day. The B.C. public is extremely cynical about the RCMP (as an organization) right now. This is the result of a number of incidents. The most notable ones are the widespread perception that some men within the RCMP systematically harass female members and civilian workers; the tasering death of a confused Polish man at the Vancou-

ver Airport; the Mountie who left the scene of a fatal accident and fortified himself with vodka; and the shooting death of an unarmed prisoner at the Houston police detachment. Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens, who has taken over as the top Mountie in B.C., says things will change—but this transfer tells people that things aren’t changing. Coming on the heels of renewal of the RCMP contract in B.C. for a 20-year period, it’s

too much for many. The vast majority of Mounties are upright, honest people whose devotion to the force’s goal “to serve and protect” is obvious. It would be hard to believe that most of them aren’t as disgusted with the decision in regard to Ray as the rest of us are. It’s even harder to imagine that the RCMP brass who made the decision didn’t see the terrible public optics.

come on the heels of the B.C. government, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, issuing zombie survival tips as a way of getting people to think about what they would need in case of a real emergency, such as flooding, fire, earthquake or any other natural or man-made carnage. Earlier this week, the well-respected U.S. Centres for Disease Control even went so far as to officially announce—in the face of growing public concern—that a zombie virus is not circulating south of the border. That was comforting given there are 10 times more people in the U.S. than in Canada, so the chance of our southern neighbour having more

zombies than we have in Canada is far greater and crossing the border is supposedly easier now—or so the U.S. president and the Canadian prime minister would have us believe. On top of that, it’s getting to be holiday time and even zombies like to load the kids into the station wagon and take a road trip. Where better to drive to than the Okanagan, with its sun, sand and Canada brains aplenty. Now that witches and wizards are passé and vampires are, like, so five minutes ago, zombies are the new scary kids on the block. The CDC announcement came in a response to the reputable Huffington Post, which posed a question to

the CDC about a possible zombie virus making the rounds. So fear not, there is no zombie pandemic. But if you are still concerned, the B.C. government’s emergency preparedness site does have those tips still posted. Of course, to keep the population calm, it claims they are only there because if you are ready for zombies, you are ready for other catastrophe. But hey, who are they kidding?

MDs want lack of retinal care addressed An open letter to the Interior Health Authority: With the recent opening of our new multimillion dollar, state of the art, tertiary care, UBC-affiliated teaching hospital, it seems quite extraordinary that a retinal service is not offered to the residents of this community. The general public’s concern and bewilderment at the lack of such a service has been well documented in recent letters to the editor and we do not feel it is necessary to repeat the cogent and compelling arguments already listed by these individuals. As local physicians we feel it is important to show our strongest support for the early establishment of a retinal program in Kelowna. We feel that whatever the reasons given by IHA there is simply no real justification to

withhold such a service. The only explanation offered seems to be one of finances—too much money required for too few patients. Could IHA confirm how many patients in the South Okanagan do, in fact, require specialist retinal care and how many are actually transferred to Vancouver rather than to Kamloops. Comments on the media by senior medical director Dr. M. Murray seem to confirm that IHA’s major concern is that the cost/benefit ratio is unfavourable. (That means financial cost exceeds patient benefit.) That may be so from a bureaucrat’s perspective, but perhaps he would feel differently if he or a loved one had a detached retina that could only be dealt with by travel to either Kamloops or Vancouver.

KGH will have a retinal program eventually. We feel it must be sooner rather than later. We are certain that with the political will, the obstacles preventing a retinal service in Kelowna could be overcome. As family physicians whose first priority is our patients’ welfare, we urge IHA to prioritize the establishment of a retinal program in Kelowna.

Condescension puzzling to newcomer

To the editor: Congratulations to Lloyd Vinish (Condescension in Column Puzzling to Newcomer, May 24, Capital News) and thank you to others like him for clearly seeing two sides to Mark Consiglio’s plans for Kelowna Mountain, and very eloquently displaying a common-sense attitude in his letter. As a relative newcomer to the valley from even further “East,” I can understand Capital News reporter Jennifer Smith’s apparent dislike for foreign imports and her intimation that change is not good. I am not a retiree, nor an “overseas landowner.” I was lucky enough to stumble across Kelowna in 2006 and moved here a year later with my family and three bags of belongings each— ours is not a story of riches and privilege. Currently, I am out of work and willing to drive big trucks,

clean, analyse data, project plan, walk dogs and mow lawns for the right person/company. You see, my skill set is wide and varied lending itself to entrepreneurial endeavours, just like the Kelowna Mountain project appears to be. So I feel the collective pain of the “Consiglio crew” and the frustration that must be present every day when all they’re trying to do is improve everyone’s lot. Okay, so a millionaire gets richer—again. What’s new, or wrong with that? Of course, Mark Consiglio isn’t doing this purely as an altruistic gesture for the city. Why would he? Why should he? Surely it is better to have the Kelowna Mountain project go ahead and offer the kind of allseason modern facility this city so desperately needs, to create a couple of thousand decent jobs in the construction process. There’s only one thing in

life that stays the same—everything changes. We humans call it progress. And so it is with all things—people, places, nature, ideas—projects all change, or evolve. We have an ability to control much of what changes around us by effectively planning what we want as an outcome. It seems to me that Mark Consiglio and his team have been carefully planning their desired outcome while Kelowna and the Regional District of the Central Okanagan blissfully failed to join in with a viable planning process for a long time. Current result: A regional district, city and local population at odds with a development project that would bring thousands of additional tourist visitors per year into this wonderful valley we are fortunate enough to call home. Come on Kelowna, see the sense in what’s being done here


Gas buyers gouged again

To the editor: While the price of a barrel of oil has now dropped more than 20 per cent, down to $83 a barrel from $107, the U.S oil companies in Canada are “engineering” a stand-pat hold on retail prices, and Canada’s Suncor Petrocan follows along. In central B.C., the retail price has been held at $1.26 a litre for too many weeks as international prices plummeted. Meanwhile, diesel prices were pushed higher than gasoline—so much for incen-

tives to supply truckers and cars with the cheapest produced cost diesel fuel . The gougers are allowed to continue to demand as much as they can get from the consumer while the federal government stands by and say: “It’s just the free enterprise competitive market at work.” Dither, dither is more like it, as government helps their friends to “stick it” to the retail customers across the country. John O. Powell, Kelowna

More hypocrisy for Catholic Church

To the editor: Regarding the Catholic Church, the Pope’s butler has been arrested for leaking documents that expose corruption within the Vatican and the Vatican Bank, thereby causing considerable embarrassment to the Pope and other high-rank-

ing officials. It seems swift and decisive action is taken when the truth concerning financial improprieties comes to light. But when members are accused of heinous sexual crimes, the remedy is to quietly move them

to another location where they’re able to re-offend without further ado. Apparently, hypocrisy still flourishes in the Catholic Church. Will the scandals never end? Guy King, Kelowna

on the South Slopes. What an advertising and marketing opportunity for the city and Okanagan Valley. I’ll bet that when the Kelowna Mountain project delivers its goods, there will be an improvement in the city’s tax coffers, regional tourism numbers and overall popularity of Kelowna as a go-to destination. Some folks don’t want to trek all the way out to Big White or cross the Bennett Bridge to get a couple hours of ski time and fresh air in the winter months. And neither Big White nor Crystal Mountain offer full four-season operation, which Kelowna Mountain proposes to do. Let’s all be proud to back local entrepreneurs and investors lest they look elsewhere for support.

Limited-term job contracts can be trap for employers N ow is the time of year when many employers are filling out their seasonal workforce. The mistake of routinely hiring employees on “one year” contracts is a trap into which these employers routinely stumble. If used properly, socalled limited-term contracts can be a useful and effective tool for structuring employment relationships. In my experience, however, there are three common outcomes from the use of limited-term employment contracts and two of them are undesirable. The purpose of a limited-term employment contract is to document a


Robert Smithson relationship which is truly time-limited. The employer hires an employee for a particular period of time and when the contract expires the employee simply departs. Upon the expiry of the term agreement and the cessation of the relationship, the employer has no obligation to provide working notice or any pay in lieu. Correspondingly, the employee has no basis for severance-related claims

against the employer. This use of a limitedterm contract is perfectly legitimate and, if properly utilized and administered, can be a very effective tool for documenting the relationship with the employee. That’s the desirable outcome. Often, however, limited term contracts are not utilized properly and this leads to the two undesirable outcomes. The first arises from employers’ tendency to hire the same individuals year after year. Although the employees go through an unpaid layoff each year, between seasons, they regularly come back to work each spring and there is no question that their employment will pick up

right where it left off. In this scenario, the employer believes it has the protection of the “one year” limited-term contract of employment which it has the employees sign each year. It thinks it can simply cut employees loose at the end of a season with no risk of liability. But what the employer often isn’t aware of is the tendency of courts to disregard the limited-term label after a few years or seasons of employment. When that occurs, the relationship is relabeled as “indefinite” in nature— this raises the implied obligation on the employer’s part to provide reasonable notice of termination and, if it doesn’t do so, the likelihood of wrongful dis-

missal actions by terminated employees. The second undesirable outcome arises if— as is often the case—the employer decides to sever the relationship prior to the expiry of the term of the agreement, it is critical to have an early termination formula built into the contract. This is important because of the common law rules regarding early termination of a limitedterm contract. The common law requires that, in the absence of an early termination formula, the severed employee is entitled to be paid out for the entire balance of the contract period. It seems that employers usually don’t realize they’ve been caught by this rule (or that it even exists) until the relationship has been severed and it’s too late to avoid this sizeable liability. In a recent case, the B.C. provincial court emphasized the rule apply-

ing to early termination of limited-term contracts. Frederic Ntibarimungu was a teacher employed by the Vancouver Career College commencing in 2006. He was signed to a new contract in 2007 stating that his employment would expire in January 2008. In the interim, however, the college claimed to have received complaints about his teaching style and to have concluded that he had a poor teaching attitude. As a result, Frederic’s employment was terminated. The court did not accept the college’s position that Frederic was terminated for reasons amounting at law to just cause for summary dismissal. That left the court with the task of assessing damages owing to Frederic as a result of the termination. The court re-stated the “general principle in law…that wrongfully dismissed employees on

fixed-term contracts are not entitled to reasonable notice but rather to the balance due under their fixed-term contract.” The college was ordered to pay Frederic damages representing the wages he would have earned during the balance of the term of his agreement. I’d say that misuse of limited-term contracts definitely falls within the top ten mistakes made by inexperienced employers and human resources staff. Avoiding this trap simply requires some basic knowledge of how the courts view employer’s use of limited-term contracts.

SPORTS Goodwin to play for hometown Heat Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

One of the elite players in B.C. high school basketball the last two seasons has chosen not to export his talents south of the border. And no one supports that decision more enthusiastically than UBC Okanagan men’s coach Pete Guarasci. Kelowna Owls’ star point guard Mitch Goodwin has committed to the Heat for the 2012-13 Canada West basketball season. The 6-foot-2 Goodwin had initially planned to attend Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey next season but, after careful consideration, opted for basketball and an education right in his own backyard. “There were so many good reasons to stay here, the education part of it, being close to home, and

playing for Pete (Guarasci) was an important aspect, too,” said Goodwin, 18, who worked previously with Guarasci at the Okanagan regional training centre in 2009. “I know Pete from before and really liked working with him.” And with the quality of Canadian university basketball continually improving, Goodwin says there is no great sacrifice in playing the game in the Great White North. “(The CIS) is getting better and better all the time, we need to keep developing basketball in Canada,” Goodwin said. “Maybe by staying in Canada, I can inspire other guys to do the same and we can keep improving the quality of the game here.” In each of his two seasons with the KSS Owls, the explosive Goodwin often dominated games and, along with post play-

er and teammate Braxston Bunce, made for B.C. high school basketball’s most dangerous duo. Goodwin, who averaged 23 points per game in 2011-12, was named MVP at two major tournaments during the season, the Telus Classic and Legal Beagle. He was a first team all-star at three other tournaments. Guarasci, the Heat’s first-year head coach, is understandably thrilled to be bringing Goodwin aboard. “Mitch is the type of player and the type or person you want to have on your team,” said Guarasci, a former Canadian Olympian and pro player in Europe. “I’m confident he made a great decision and he’s going to help our program going forward. Based on his ability and work ethic, I can see him immediately having some sort of impact.”

With the Heat coming off a 3-15 inaugural season in the CIS, Guarasci sees Goodwin as a good fit and an important building block for the future of the men’s program. “We don’t have any specific expectations of Mitch, we just want him to come in work hard, allow himself to be coached, and look at getting better every day,” Guarasci said. “He has an incredible work ethic and determination and really wants to win. “There’s lots of work to be done with his game and that’s what’s exciting. As a point guard, he hasn’t even scratched the surface of what he can be.” For Goodwin’s part, the step up from high school to the university level is a challenge he’s looking forward to. “I think it’ll be great for me playing against guys 22 and 23 years old, I won’t be one of the big guys

win. “I know university will be a big step. I’m looking forward to it.” Goodwin is the second local player to sign with

the Heat men’s basketball team this spring. Immaculata guard Dario Gini committed to UBC Okanagan in April.

Okanagan Sun duo getting a look over at Lions camp A pair of Okanagan Sun veterans are getting a good, thorough look from the B.C. Lions. Defensive lineman Steven Doege and receiver Danny Turek have both been taking reps at the CFL team’s training camp in Kamloops.

Doege and Turek impressed the defending Grey Cup champs enough at rookie camp from May 30 to June 1 to earn invites back to the Lions’ main camp which began Sunday morning. Sun GM Jay Christensen said attending a CFL

They’ll both learn some of those nuances of the pro game and ways to improve.” Both players are hoping their association with

Lift off for Kelowna Falcons’ 2012 season Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

With no returning players on the roster and a new coaching staff, the 2011 season was indeed a bumpy ride for the Kelowna Falcons. Twelve months later, with six players and field boss Al Cantwell back for another tour of duty, there is an air of both familiarity and optimism for the West Coast League club. “We’re just really excited to back here and try it again,” said Cantwell, a Canadian who coaches high school baseball in Louisiana. “There was so

much new last year it took a while to really find a routine, to be part of the recruiting process, and to know more of the kids. So on the whole, I think we’re a little ahead of the game from where we were last year, I’m excited about the group we have coming in. “Our six guys coming back are really going to help out in the day to day stuff and with little questions that guys have,” added Cantwell who will be assisted by Lloyd Gage. “It’s a big advantage for us.” The Falcons, who went 19-34 last season, will open up the 2012

A’s sweep into first in Premier League Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

With nearly half of its season still remaining, the Okanagan Athletics Premier Baseball League team has tied the franchise record for wins in a season and sit in the lofty position of first place in the BCPBL. The Athletics climbed into first place with a four game sweep of the Whalley Chiefs on the weekend, improving its record to 23-5 and equalling the most wins ever in a season by the franchise in their

eight year history in the PBL, considered the top midget baseball league in Canada. It’s also the first time the franchise has been in first place in the PBL this late in a season since it entered the PBL in 2004. “It’s awesome,” said head coach Evan Bailey, now in his third season at the helm of the Athletics, formerly known as the Kelowna Cubs. “When I came in and took the team over they were always at the bottom and we’ve managed to work our way up over a couple of years.

It’s really rewarding. It’s kind of surreal. We are just trying to keep the endgoal in sight and that is to be there in the end, to be in that final game and win a championship.” Against the PBL’s last place team on the weekend, the Athletics played their best baseball of the season, outscoring the Chiefs 32-2. It was a weekend where the A’s were expected to win and Bailey says the players really came through with great performances from all parts of the lineup. “Those weekends can

be tough because you have the feeling you are expected to win,” said Bailey. “Even though they (Whalley) weren’t the best team, I thought those were by far the best four games we have played this year. We put everything together. All our guys hit the ball, we had four strong starts from our pitchers and we played well defensively.” After winning twice on Saturday the Athletics completed the sweep on Sunday with two convincing wins including a 5-1 series closing win on Sunday. Morgan Lofstrom

pitched a complete game three-hitter in the win. Earlier Sunday James Walker pitched a complete game five hitter in a 9-0 win. On Saturday Clinton Heidebrecht earned the win a 7-1 decision while Dillon Kakoshke pitched a complete game shutout in an 11-0 rout to open the weekend The Athletics host the North Shore Twins this weekend at Elks Stadium before heading to Nanaimo to play the second place Pirates in two weeks.

Kelowna Men’s Soccer League summary for the week

In Division 1 play, Brandt’s Creek Pub FC fought their way to a 1-0 win over Illegal Aliens. With the loss, the Aliens drop down to fifth place, while Brandt’s retains ttheir hold solely in second place. Mike Jaschke got the winner for Brandt’s 15 minutes into the second half off a 20 yard volley. Brandt’s could have opened the scoring earlier through Morgan Marrs, but a great diving save by the Alien’s Paul Gosset kept it knotted at zeros. In the second half Gostset made a great save on a break-away by Brandt’s Gary Allen and he was lucky to not be chipped after an exquisite shot from Brandt’s Scott Johnston that struck the crossbar. KonKast Stallions ended their winless record with a 2-1 win over LCSC Woody’s Pub. Woody’s could not take advantage of an undermanned Stallions early in the game and the Stallions got a quick two goals before half. They would continue to carry the play in the second half, even with Woody’s Scott Twigg getting a late consolation goal from the penalty spot. Ecora FC used their topportunity to jump up into a tie for third place with a 3-2 win over SOB FC. Ecora would get three goals in the first half through a pair from Chad Forman and one from Matt Gomez. In the second half SOB stormed back to get two goals from Lucio Pucci and put a scare into the Ecora side. League leaders, Modern Furniture Pikeys, had an easy week with a decisive 10-0 win over the short handed Subcity/ Executive Flooring. Scoring were: Matt Reese (4), Justin Kandola (2), Dan Hunt, Nathan Samaddar, Kyle Logan and Brian Stephenson. Dakoda’s Celtic also took advantage of Illegal Aliens slip up to jump into a tie with Ecora FC for third place with a 3-2 win over Boca Juniors. In Division 2 action: Euro FC took the sole possession of the division two’s top spot with a 3-1 win over basement-dwelling Barcekelona. A pair of goal from Mike Janz and a final tally from Alex MacNaul would lead the way in the victory. Lifeworks Chiropractic won 4-2 over, now second place, Invisibulls. The Bulls got an early goal from Braeden Pistawka, but a

four goal onslaught by Lifeworks would put the game out of reach through James Whillans’ double, Luke Turri, and Mike Ber-

toia. Pistawka would get a late one, but it was all for not. Iris Optometry Wave FC cruised their way to a 7-2 victory over an eight-

man LCSC United. Goals from Nic Race (3), Stirling Wood (3), and Kevin Mueller led the way for the Wave. Spartan Mvetal

got two goals from Develyn Barker and one from Dylan Vicaretti to hold onto a 3-2 win over Fresh Air FC. Arsalan Karimi

would get two for Fresh Air in the loss. YOLO slipped from third to fifth with a 2-0 loss to an FBFC team that played

half the game, one player short, after a red card. John Albrecht and Paul Myhr scored goals in the first half.

quality players on the list,” said Barry Ebl, CORE Director responsible for Rugby Excellence. “We expect a very competitive match on June 7, as players compete for spots on various rep teams.” The UBC Okanagan and Kelowna Crows coaches will also be on hand to identify promising graduating players for their university sevens and Crows Under-19 teams. “The Senior All-Star Game is a chance for graduating players to connect with the coaches of adult teams,” said Ebl. “Last year’s game brought high quality players like Jared Curry and Bryce Stirling to the Crows top team.

OKM Huskies a solid 5th at provincial rugby tournament The Okanagan Mission Secondary Huskies turned in the best performance ever by a valley school at the B.C. high school boys AA rugby championship. On Saturday in Abbotsford, the No. 6 ranked Huskies claimed fifth place in the province

with a 21-7 victory over McRoberts. With a bruised and battered squad, the Huskies took a 14-0 lead to the half. The Richmond school battled back in the second but OKM stemmed the onslaught to win by 14. “The boys, many play-

ing their last game for the Huskies, played with vigor and intensity all game,” said Huskies coach Steve Doyle. “The forwards were immense and dominant all game and they got an equally impressive effort from their backline on the day.” In the quarterfinals

Wednesday, OKM ran into No. 3 Rockridge Secondary and despite putting up a fight, dropped a 36-22 decison, the Huskies’ only defeat of the season. On Thursday, the Huskies rebounded with a solid 10-5 win over Southridge to advance to

the 5th/6th place game. Huskies hooker Andrew Barr led his team offensively with seven tries in four provincial playoff contests, and for this efforts was named to the Commissioner’s XV, an honorary team of the tournament’s best players. Coaches Doyle and

Chuck Bullock are proud of the achievements of the OKM squad this year, particularly for the Huskies’ ability to handle adversity with a tough team resilience that is part of every winning team. “Just shows what can happen when you have a dedicated group of play-

ers,” Doyle added. The Huskies 10-1 record included the Okanagan Valley championship. The Kelowna Christian Knights also competed at provincials and finished in 11th place after defeating L.V. Rogers 24-5 on the final day of competition.

How a public guardian appointee can support seniors W hen seniors need help to manage due to an illness, accident, disability or diseases associated with aging, their judgment may be impaired. Seniors may no longer be able to perform daily tasks which are important to their health and safety, and may be unable to make informed choices. The decision as to whether seniors are capable of managing their


Sharen Marteny financial and legal affairs, or making personal decisions, is a legal one, based on medical evidence. A doctor must examine the senior and determine whether that indi-

vidual has the mental capacity to understand the impact of the decisions faced in their lives. Seniors may have authorized someone else to make decisions through an Enduring Power of Attorney or Representation Agreement. If no such agreement is in place and there is a demonstrated need for assistance, the Public Guardian and Trustee (PGT) may be appointed. The PGT is put in


Planning with seniors, not for seniors Art Kube CONTRIBUTOR

It’s nice to be remembered. And it’s for a whole week, not just 15 minutes. The provincial government has proclaimed June 3 to 9 as Seniors’ Week. Political leaders will issue statements about the contributions seniors have made to our province’s economy and society as a whole. A few of us old folks were talking about it the other day. We’re honoured to have a whole week. Someone noted that mothers and fathers only get a day, and we qualify for those days as well. It’s always welcome when people say nice things about you – especially when they do so before you’re dead. But we also came to the conclusion that something is missing in the discussion of seniors’ issues. The key point is that we’re still alive, still as active as we can be, still anxious to help build a better province. There’s a large demographic shift underway. The people of B.C. and Canada are getting older. It creates both opportunities and challenges. It also creates a real need for political leadership. We have a hodge-podge of approaches to aging. Responsibility is divided among a host of federal and provincial government ministries. Local governments also have a role in creating agefriendly communities. There’s no doubt it’s easier said than done, but what we really need is a com-

prehensive, coordinated approach to this demographic change. The driving force should be to help seniors stay active, healthy and independent. Too often, government programs treat symptoms rather than reach for the real goal. They put a cast on the broken leg, rather than working to prevent the fall. They provide inadequate home care and home support services, forcing many seniors into residential care homes, or even acute care beds. It doesn’t make sense economically or socially. Other countries have faced demographic shifts. We’re not the first. Their solutions are quite different from what we see here today. They focus on independence. Home care. Home support. Independent living arrangements. Opportunities for social contact. And public pensions sufficient to lift seniors out of poverty. We don’t claim that age gives you wisdom, but it does give you experience. Seniors are an asset, not a liability, to society. We have no desire to be put into expensive facilities where we can vegetate and wait to die. We want to fully participate, advocate on public issues, fulfill our responsibilities as citizens, and help to create a more civil society for our children and grandchildren. And we must be involved in planning our own futures. Art Kube is president of The Council of Senior Citizens’ Organizations of B.C., is a federation of 80 organizations throughout the province, representing more than 80,000 seniors.

place to protect the legal rights and financial interests of seniors who can’t protect their own interests and have no one else to help handle that responsibility. The PGT is independent of government, intended to make decisions in their best interest of their client senior. When the PGT is appointed by the court to manage a senior’s affairs, their role is to protect a senior’s property and financial interests, and has authority to deal with those assets.

If at some point a senior is medically declared capable to manage their own affairs, the PGT’s involvement is ended. The PGT’s goal is to provide the level of help the seniors need, and to make decisions, where necessary, that the seniors would have made had they been capable. The PGT pays expenses from a senior’s trust fund. If the individual is in a care facility, the PGT pays their maintenance charges and provides additional money for small purchas-

es if a senior can afford it. If a senior lives on their own, those costs are looked after as well. If the senior does not have money to cover living expenses, the PGT can apply for income assistance on their behalf. The PGT involves the seniors and their families in all major financial and legal decisions, subject to such things as the senior’s wishes, prior history and ability to understand, the interest and availability of family, how urgent the matter is and confidentiality.

If a senior dies while the PGT is in effect, all of that client’s assets become part of their final estate. Until those assets have been transferred, the PGT safeguards the assets and continues to collect any income where warranted. For further information on the role of the PGT, call 604-775-1007 or email Sharen Marteny is a services consultant for seniors.

An interesting week Dollar Store in the Mission robbed in Parliament for MP A Police are looking for a robbery suspect after a man demanded money from the clerk of a Mission area Dollar Store on Saturday night. The Kelowna RCMP received a report of a robbery at a Dollar Store located at 3155 Lakeshore Rd.,at 7:42 p.m.

“Apparently, a man had given the clerk a note demanding money before fleeing on a bicycle with a small amount of cash. No weapon was produced and no one was injured,” said Const. Kris Clark. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, and around 40

years old. He was wearing a dark baseball cap, sunglasses, dark hoodie and dark pants. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

News from your community Capital News

s I write this column, it is 1 a.m. last Wednesday morning as my colleagues and I were gathered in the House of Commons preparing to vote on C-39, the back-to-work legislation that would get CP Rail moving again. It’s been quite the week with some big wins and one particular disappointment. First and foremost, my mind is on our veterans. I was reassured to see Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence, and Steven Blaney, Minister of Veterans Affairs, announce that the federal government of Canada will not appeal the federal court’s May 1, 2012, decision regarding the offset of Pension Act disability benefits from the Service Income Security Insurance Plan. “The men and women who serve and sacrifice in Canada’s name need to know that their government will stand behind them and provide the ben-



Ron Cannan efits they need when their service is complete,” said MacKay. “I am pleased to announce our government will discontinue the offset for Long Term Disability benefits.” Since 2006, the government has put in place a wide range of programs and benefits to support ill and injured veterans, military personnel and their families. These complement the Long Term Disability group insurance plan for Canadian Forces members that is administered under SISIP. This program has done a tremendous amount of good by giving veterans with a long-term disability a benefit equal to 75 per cent of their pre-

release salary. Second, with the help of my assistant Louise I have been in discussion with Veterans Affairs to see if there is some way, despite the necessary cutbacks, to retain some local service for Veterans here in Kelowna. I am confident that we will be able to come up with a better solution than requiring local veterans to drive to Penticton. It’s just too far for some of our oldest veterans to travel. So, stay tuned. I’m fairly confident we can turn this one around. Speaking of confidence, I was also fairly confident that Bill C-311, An Act to amend the 1928 Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act, tabled by my colleague MP Dan Albas, was going to pass last week. Based on my motion 601, C-311, will allow Canadians from out of province to buy wine directly from our local vintners in B.C. and other provinces, a win-win for consumers and vintners alike. Bill C-311, has had all party support from the get go, a testament to the common sense of the legislation and the hard work of Albas. But instead of popping a cork to celebrate the victory for consumers and our vintners, the NDP pulled the plug choosing that moment to refuse to allow the bill to complete third reading, the final stage a bill passes before it is sent to the Senate. If the legislation is not passed until the fall, the NDP have just ended up hurting the industry, especially our smaller vintners, who were really looking forward to the bill’s passage. All in all, it’s been an interesting week with a few wins and some setbacks. I’m signing off now to vote on C-39. By the time you read this, Bill C-39 will have passed: The trains will be rolling again, the growing disruption to the economy will be rectified, and, hopefully, the two sides will be back at the negotiating table signing an agreement they can both live with. Ron Cannan is the Conservative MP for Kelowna-Lake Country. 250-470-5075

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen berry fresh spring It’s a good idea to arrive at berry and cherry season armed with lots of good ideas so you can make the most of what is a very flavourful time of year, but not a very long season. On the other hand, there are also many uses for frozen berries, which retain their unmatched flavour when picked fresh off the vine within a few miles of the kitchen and immediately frozen. There are also dried options for fruits such as cherries, and dried ones are crammed full of concentrated cherry flavours. They can be an option when local fresh cherries simply are not available. However, in the coming weeks, we will be able to taste fruit that’s fresh from local farmers’ fields and orchards—the first of the season—so here are a few ideas of nice, light main dish salads that feature those first local fruits. This is a golden time of year to m ake green salads using a huge variety of edible leaves and flowers, topped with other fresh, local produce such as peas, radishes, berries and green onions. A cupful of a lean protein such as fresh, B.C. shrimp or prawns, beef, chicken, seafood or cheese and you've got a quick and healthy, lean meal. Berry and cherry flavours, especially in fresh salads, pair beautifully with the dry, but fruity rose wines now made in the Okanagan, so try one with the following recipes and see if you're not pleasantly surprised. For lots of other recipes made with local fruits and greens, and other B.C. produce and protein, pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, published by the Okanagan Institute and available wherever books are sold—plus a variety of local wine shops and the B.C. Wine Museum. Incidentally, congratulations to Jenna Angle for winning the B.C. Junior Chef of the Year to represent B.C. at the national conference in Halifax in June. The menu she concocted from her black box ingredients to win this award sounds absolutely mouth-watering, so it’s not surprising she placed so well. We all wish you the best in Halifax and we hope to see that national trophy coming to the Okanagan, Jenna!

Steak & Cherry Salad with Sprouts & Feta Cheese It may be a bit unusual, but these flavours are terrific together. Try it, you’ll love it. And, it’s a complete meal in a bowl full of fruit and vegetables, beef, cheese and nuts. You could substitute a blue or gorgonzola cheese for the feta and leave off the seeds or nuts or try different ones. And, once the fresh, local cherries are available, substitute pitted, halved fresh fruit for the dried, and use two or three times as many. 4 c. (1 l) fresh salad greens 1 c. (250 ml) fresh bean sprouts 1 c. (250 ml) thinly-sliced beef steak 1/2 c. (125 ml) crumbled Feta cheese 1/4 c. (60 ml) dried cherries 1/4 c. (60 ml) sunflower seeds

1/4 c. (60 ml) roasted pine nuts Rinse and dry fresh young greens such as lettuces, spinach, mesclun, spring greens… and tumble into a large salad bowl. Rinse and drain fresh, crisp bean sprouts and add. Thinly slice a tender beef steak, perhaps left over from a previous night’s barbecue and add. Crumble feta cheese over the salad, along with dried cherries, sunflower seeds and roasted pine nuts. Serve with a light dressing such as a raspberry vinaigrette. Serves 2-4.


Greens & Berries Salad with Goat Cheese & Herbs There’s nothing with quite the flavour of freshly-picked strawberries or raspberries and both would be fabulous in this light spring salad of fresh greens. The watermelon is optional, but a very good addition later in the season when there are fresh ones available. I’d leave it out until then. Do think outside the box when it comes to the greens because fresh herbs and unusual greens are a great match with fresh berries. 4 c. (1 l) spinach and other greens 1 c. (250 ml) watermelon 1 c. (250 ml) strawberries 1/2 chopped Vidalia onion 1/4 c. (60 ml) crumbled goat cheese 1/4 c. (60 ml) cilantro leaves

2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh parsley coarse sea salt, to taste freshly-ground black pepper Tear up washed and dried spinach and other fresh greens into a salad serving bowl. Dice watermelon and chop strawberries and onion, then finely dice or crumble goat cheese into the greens and reds. Coarsely chop cilantro and parsley and toss on top. Top with a sprinkle of coarse sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper, and use a light vinaigrette such as raspberry or lemon. Serves 4.

Some simple guidelines for readers of Jude's Kitchen There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. *I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg *usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable *usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste *I generally use sea salt

*fresh ingredients top frozen or canned *organic products are my first choice *wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed *include a variety of them, when possible *wherever possible, I use fresh herbs *fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh

*I use extra virgin olive oil *I use grapeseed or olive oil to cook with *I don’t deep fry *feel free to substitute. I do *have fun in the kitchen *encourage others to as well
