WL baby dies Big Bike brings in big support in Kelowna Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer An eight-month-old boy who had currently been living in Williams Lake died in Kelowna on Monday morning. He was staying in a motel with his family when he began having difficulties breathing. When the family contacted BC Ambulance, the call was also referred to the Kelowna RCMP. “At about quarter to ten in the morning we received the report. When we arrived both the ambulance and fire department were on scene and had commenced life-saving efforts, but when the boy was transferred to hospital he could not be revived,” says Kelowna RCMP Cst. Kris Clark, adding the infant’s death is not considered suspicious. “It will be up to the coroner. The autopsy may show more, but right now we have no cause for suspicion,” Clark says.

The City of Williams Lake, the Cariboo Regional District and the Royal Bank of Canada ride the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Big Bike through the lakecity Tuesday afternoon. The bike, which is on its way across the province, helped the organization raise more than $10,000 in Williams Lake through pledges raised by riders from multiple teams who participated.

Contaminated soil to be cleaned up Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer It is anticipated that soil contamination at the old fire training area at the Williams Lake airport will be cleaned up by 2015, says acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall. “The city’s understanding is that the site will be cleaned up earlier than anticipated,” Goodall said. “They have a mobile system that comes up to the airport for pumping ground water out.” Mayor Kerry Cook requested the item be discussed at Tuesday’s city council meeting after she, other councillors and city staff members were contacted by Joe Minor, a biologist from Hamilton, Ont., who has been advocating on a local level that the federal government clean up similar contamination at the Hamilton airport. Reading from a report prepared by chief administrative officer Brian Carruthers, Cook said the city entered into an agreement with the

federal government for transfer of the airport to the city in July 1996. At the time, Transport Canada contracted UMA Environmental Limited to conduct a baseline study of the airport. Soil contamination was identified at the fire training areas and Transport Canada confirmed in a letter date Nov. 29, 1996 to then chief administrative officer Wayne Thiessen it would perform the required remediation. That work would involve remediating contaminated ground water and surface soil contamination at the existing fire training area and remediating deep soil contamination at the existing and former fire training areas. The consultant’s report identified a number of priority items; however, it stated there were no known threats to human health or safety. Of those priorities, 28 were noted around violation of federal, provincial and municipal law, 21 for noncompliance with a policy, guideline, and code and 16 not reflective of

good environmental practices. Under a contract with Public Works Canada, a private environmental engineering firm began the remediating work in 2005 and has continued every year since. Coun. Ivan Bonnell asked about changes in the timeline slated for cleanup at the airport. Originally it was 2038, but has now been reduced to 2015. “I don’t know what the impact of all that means,” Bonnell said. Minor told the Tribune Tuesday morning, the main thing Williams Lake should worry about is that for several years running the federal government said it would stay and help Williams Lake clean up this mess until 2038 and on May 4 of this year changed its mind and decided it was going to leave in 2015. “All that pollution will become the city’s responsibility, he warns, adding the city needs to be told more by the federal government about what’s happened. Because it hasn’t been cleaned up, it will continue to spread, and you’ll be responsible

for figuring out how far it’s spread. That costs a lot of money, that ongoing monitoring.” Minor voiced concerns about the water affecting nearby wells; however, Bonnell said he thinks that people in Hamilton probably think the airport is closer to residential areas than it actually is. Minor described Hamilton and Williams Lake as two cities linked in a tale-of-two-cities-kind-of-way, because both airports were “badly” contaminated with chemicals. “I was the person, as a citizen volunteer, who figured out that these chemicals were leaching off Hamilton’s airport into a local waterway where they were badly contaminating fish and making them unsafe to eat,” Minor said. For more than a year Minor has attempted to retrieve information about what chemicals were used in Hamilton and in Williams Lake. See ONTARIO Page A3

courthouse locked down Wednesday morning Monica Lamb-Yorski photo Williams Lake RCMP members stand outside the courthouse building on Borland Street Wednesday morning. The building was on lock down due to reports of someone brandishing a firearm inside. Insp. Warren Brown of the Williams Lake RCMP says that at about 10:30 a.m. a male phoned the Williams Lake RCMP detachment to say that a male dressed in a black hoody attended an office at the courthouse and had a gun. The RCMP, along with Sheriff Services, locked down the building and conducted a systematic search. However, the search did not confirm that there was someone inside with a gun. “The investigation is continuing to determine whether or not this was a hoax,” Brown says. “Due to the vague details, we could not determine which floor or office the alleged incident occurred nor could we determine the source of the call.”

leave of absence. At the Williams Lake city council meeting

Chiefs protest at Taseko AGM Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Tlet’inqox Chief Joe Alphonse, along with other First Nations leaders from B.C. and leaders from South America, protested outside of Taseko Mines Ltd.’s AGM held Friday in Vancouver. “There were supporters from various groups. There were about 50 or 60 people, which was

better than what we could have expected,” Alphonse says, explaining that he was one of several speakers at the event. “We wanted to show and demonstrate that there is opposition to the development of the New Prosperity mine. We wanted to be consistent with our message. If we let up then Taseko will say there’s no protest and that the Tsilhqot’in are in support

of the development.” There was extra security personnel outside and Alphonse says Taseko was not willing to meet with the media. For Alphonse the support and media coverage of the protest was more than he could have hoped for. “We were supposed to be there for two hours, but when all was said and done I think we were there for three and a half

hours.” Inside, Taseko’s AGM was actually completed in seven minutes, vice president of corporate affairs Brian Battison says. “It’s a regulatory requirement. The formal part of the meeting involves the appointment of auditors, re-appointment of board members, procedural things. The formal part was over in a very short period of

time.” It’s not the first time there’s been a protest outside the AGM, Battison recalls. “There was one a couple of years before. I don’t think there was one last year, but it was the same situation and the same concerns as the last one.” Battison adds there were no comments made about the protest inside at the meeting.

Williams Lake Tribune Thursday, June 7, 2012 A3


Ombudsperson speaks on seniors report Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer B.C.’s ombudsperson is optimistic that if seniors speak up about reasonable expectations seniors care will improve in the province. Speaking to local seniors at a meeting hosted by Independent MLA Bob Simpson at the Pioneer Complex in Williams Lake Tuesday, ombudsperson Kim Carter and her colleague Bruce Ronayne, executive director of intake and systemic investigations, presented the ombudsperson’s latest report — The Best of Care: Getting it Right for Seniors in British Columbia (Part 2). The report was first released in February and outlines 143 findings and 176 recommendations to the Ministry of Health, Ministry Responsible for Housing, and five regional health authorities. It investigated home and community care issues, home support, assisted living and residential care and a spirit of ensuring people are treated fairly. “We found people need assistance to navigate the system, that people who deliver care need support, and that there needs to be clear, objective, enforceable standards,” Carter says. “There also needs to be a straight forward and responsive complaints process. We found they weren’t there and in some cases people

were not getting any answers.” Highlighting statistics, the report shows payments for home and community care can range from $10 a day for home support to more than $2,900 a month for residential care. Seniors can be paying up to 80 per cent of their income as long as they have $325 left for themselves. Carter says seniors are the consumers and have the ability to have an influence. When it comes to reporting abuse and neglect, the report looks at the requirement of staff to report abuse, and discovered that some workers said they were afraid to speak up. The report includes both shorter-term and longer-term recommendations. For the shorter term, one of the key recommendations suggests standardized training and registration for community health workers. Under its longer-term recommendations, the report calls on the Ministry of Health to report out every year. “An annual home and community report needs to be put out there so people understand what’s happening,” Carter explains. In 2009/2010, at least 24,500 seniors received subsidized long-term home support services, of which health authorities spent approximately

Around 60 people attended a meeting about the Ombudsperson’s report on Seniors Care in BC. Ombudsperson Kim Carter was there on the invitation of Independent MLA Bob Simpson. $339 million providing subsidies. Interior Health expended 582,632 hours in subsidized long-term home support services and supports of independent living in 2009/10, down from 882,283 in 2008/09 and 919,999 in 2007/08. “These are the types of figures people need in order to have a good conversation,” Carter says. Specific cases are outlined in the report, one about a woman’s home support hours being reduced by half. “We learned that health authority staff had approved a reduction in services because they believed that the same number of tasks could be performed in less time,” Carter says. Later the health authority acknowledged that wasn’t

the case and agreed to restore most of the original time allotment. When it comes to home support, the report calls on the Ministry of Health to establish clear, specific and enforceable standards. Ronayne said there were 194 registered assisted living residences in B.C. as of May 2011, with five regional health authorities providing $74.7 million in funding in 2010/11. A total of 4,380 units were subsidized; 2,451 were not. The Interior Health Authority in 2010/11 had 57 residences, 926 publicly subsidized units and 904 private pay units. Subsidized residents pay a maximum of 70 per cent of their after-tax income — an amount that ranged from $801 to $3,860 per month,

and averaged $1,224 per month as of March 2010. In 2008/09 the average wait after assessment for placement was 185 days for residents in IHA, 146 days in 2009/10, and 160 in 2010/11. One of the shorter term recommendations around assisted living is to provide legal authority to recognize a wider range of relationships for residents who can no longer care for themselves. A longer-term recommendation focuses on legally-binding quality care of standards around things such as food safety and records keeping. Another recommendation advocates that the office of the assisted living registrar be expanded to have broader powers. In 2010/11 there were 5,279 publicly subsidized

residential care beds up from 4,304 in 2005/06 for IHA. Daily hours of direct care provided per resident in 2011 averaged 2.85 hours in IHA, up slightly from 2.80 hours in 2008. There are no legislative requirements around time, the number of staff or who should be on duty. While child-care facilities have strict guidelines, elder-care facilities do not, Carter observes. “In the Ministry of Health’s report to us, one of the recommendations was that the report would benefit from direct input from seniors,” Carter says. The Ministry of Health is also soliciting feedback on establishing a seniors advocate. While public consultation meetings are not being held in Williams

Lake, local seniors are encouraged to submit feedback either by mail, e-mail or phone. Simpson says people can either contact his office or MLA Donna Barnett’s for more information. Seniors Advisory Council member George Atamanenko wonders if there’s a “true” buy-in from government and public health authorities to the recommendations and how long it will take for any of them to be implemented. Carters says there’s the voice of buy-in. “We’ve made the recommendations. There can be buy-in, but it’s easy to be distracted. What’s really going to make a difference is that public interest in getting key recommendations implemented.”

Ontario resident concerned with soil by airport Continued From Page A1 “Like Sherlock Holmes on the Internet, I’ve been trying to figure out what was done with firefighting chemicals and came across little abstracts

that say in the Interior of B.C. there is a very bad problem with PFCs, PFOCs and PFOAs contamination and we’re working on it.” He added it was only by very carefully looking at every

record that contained the word “fire” that he figured out there was a mess being dealt with in Williams Lake. “I wondered if people in Williams Lake knew about this and I began sending out emails,” Minor said.

Minor read the CAO’s report for Tuesday evening’s council meeting and said he was disappointed. “It doesn’t tell you where the contamination is or how much there is. I’m telling the city to let me know if

I’m wrong, but please give me the data and show me why I’m wrong.” Carruthers’ report, however, said the remediation program is focused on removal of hydro carbons resulting from the burning

of petroleum products at the training areas and not PFC/PFOC, as these chemicals are not identified as requiring remediation by the provincial government. “The city’s interests are not affected by the

contaminated site as the airport groundwater source is isolated from the contamination. There are no other health or safety issues affecting the airport lands or operations,” the report stated.

The city is asking owners of the closed Slumber Lodge Motel in Williams Lake to secure the building after receiving complaints that unauthorized persons have been occupying the building.

Unwelcome guests squat at motel Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Owners of a closed motel in Williams Lake’s downtown are being asked by the city to do some remedial work by July 12 because the site is unsafe and poses a hazard. At its Tuesday meeting, council heard the city continues to receive several complaints about unauthorized person(s) occupying the Slumber Lodge Motel, which is located near Oliver Street and Seventh Avenue south. Options for the owners include beefing up security to prevent entry by unauthorized people or hiring the services of a security company to provide security 24/7. If the city does not hear back from the owner by June 25 of this year, the city will carry out remedial action itself at the owner’s expense. Mayor Kerry Cook says the RCMP has received several complaints and, on May 23, 2002, the Williams Lake Fire Department issued a BC Fire Code order for the owners to comply with certain provisions that have not been remedied. “The RCMP and Citizens on Patrol are doing

regular patrols of this area,” Cook says, adding there’s a high risk for death and serious injury. Williams Lake RCMP Insp. Warren Brown says some people use the Slumber Lodge to drink and/or sleep in. “They have no permission to do this; however, the central location, the lack of security, and accessibility make it a welcome place, not to mention there is no rent. There is still electricity to the building so this offers an added bonus to the ‘squatter.’” The RCMP is concerned that due to the high-risk behaviour that occurs in the suites, there is a high potential for a fire or some other looming accident that could cause risk to human life/safety. “The city has been very co-operative and is taking steps to remedy our concerns,” Brown says. Acting chief administrative officer Geoff Goodall says the city has been dealing with the issue over the last month and the activities are a real concern. “The remedial action that we’ve presented here is the quickest option for us to get some security to that building,” Goodall says.

Coun. Surinderpal Rathor asked who would be responsible if something were to happen within the next few weeks before the notice for remediation goes

out. Goodall says the option is the fastest, legal way the city can get authorization to go in and do something if it has to.

The Tribune visited the site after Tuesday evening’s council meeting and met with the owners. However, they declined to comment on the issue.

PUBLIC INPUT SOUGHT ON RENTAL SUITES IN SINGLE FAMILY HOMES The City of Williams Lake encourages residents to fill out a survey in order to collect public input on rental suites in single family homes. A survey is available online at and at City Hall, 450 Mart Street.

Patricia Higgins Director of Finance City of Williams Lake 450 Mart Street Williams Lake, BC V2G 1N3


The survey asks questions regarding whether the City should allow secondary suites where the homeowner does not live in the home, and how the City should approach duplexes with secondary suites. Currently, the Policy states that suites are not allowed in homes where the owner is renting both the main part of the house, as well as the suite. This requirement reflects a higher number of complaints about noise and property maintenance, where homeowners do not live in the home. It is believed that if the owner lives in the home, there will be fewer issues and complaints from both the neighbourhood and the tenant. Houses with both the main and secondary suite rented are not permitted and would either need to remove their suite or consider an application to rezone to an R-2 designation (Two Family residential).

Milestone celebrated

No, I’m not on vacation


illiams Lake welcomed the Imperials Metals Annual General Meeting recently, the first time the company has held its AGM outside Vancouver. I attended the meeting, and later a tour of the Mount Polley mine. It was great to From the see ImpeMayor’s rial Metals Chair making Kerry Cook the effort to show its shareholders and guests one of its key assets in person; and also giving those investors a glimpse of the communities and people who support the mine. The city’s Business Expansion and Attraction Strategy calls for the city to work with local mining companies to identify suppliers and urge them to relocate to Williams Lake. We want to be the province’s supply and training centre for mining. There is so much happening around us in this industry — Mount Polley, Gibraltar, the New Prosperity and Spanish Mountain Gold proposals — and the city wants to be poised to capitalize on the economic development benefits. I attended the Federation of Canadian Municipalities annual conference in Saskatoon, and what stuck out to me was it’s not just Williams Lake, or the cities at the BC Mayors Caucus, but cities across the country that want to see better funding arrangements with the federal government. Municipalities get eight cents of every tax dollar, and that has not changed in years. More and more services are downloaded to municipalities. There needs to be stable funding for public infrastructure, such as roads and water systems, most of which is built and maintained by municipalities. Williams Lake has joined the chorus of municipal voices calling for a better funding arrangement. Lots of grads and their families are busy this week with pictures, family barbecues, and other activities as the big weekend approaches. I’m one of those parents, and it is a very busy time. But it’s a good kind of busy. We are celebrating an important milestone in our children’s lives, and they should be celebrated for their hard work. I wish all the grads of 2012 the very best as they start the next chapter of their lives. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.


Our Viewpoint

Protests begin Federal politics are getting stranger all the time, and more than a little bit scary. It is frightening to watch the antics of the federal Tories under Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The Conservatives had been straining at the long leash of a minority government for years, drooling at the thought of taking full control of the House of Commons. Well, their wishes have come true and they are steam rolling over the Opposition, as the federal NDP lost its leader shortly after the election and, undoubtedly, Canadians were relying on Jack Layton to temper the Tory enthusiasm. The former powerhouse federal Liberals are a shadow of what they once were, and now appear to be rudderless on the political landscape. It appears there is little opportunity to slow Mr. Harper in his push to reshape Canada. The prime minister will do what he thinks is best and folks better watch out if they get in his way. The Tories want to close the investigation on the F-35 fighter jet fiasco. It’s absolute nonsense to

close the investigation when so many things went wrong in this messy affair. Now, the Tory government wants to push Bill C-38, the Budget Implementation Bill, through the House. It includes some six dozen laws that will significantly affect the lives of all Canadians now and into the future. The trouble is most folks, including the folks we send to Ottawa, don’t know everything that’s in the bill — let alone the fine details or the pitfalls it may create in the future. So, how do people slow down the Harper Express? They try to encourage their elected representatives to urge the prime minister to give more time to scrutinize the bill. If that doesn’t work, they do what British Columbians did when the B.C. Liberals rammed the HST down our throats. This is exactly what 30 or so concerned citizens did when they held a protest rally in front of Cathy McLeod’s office in 100 Mile House on June 2. The pebble has started rolling down the mountain. — Ken Alexander

t’s great to have Quesnel as my home base again after the long spring session of the legislature. The end of session does not mean MLAs go on vacation, however. They simply move their base of operations back to t h e i r commuMLA nities. I ’ m Musings always Bob Simpson taken aback by people who believe that MLAs don’t work if the B.C. Legislature isn’t sitting. I had someone come up to me this past week and tell me they think we get too much time off now that the legislature supposedly sits in accordance with a fixed calendar. “Must be nice to be off till the fall,� the person quipped.   The reality is that when the legislature sits MLAs simply add the burden of their Victoria workload to their ongoing constituency obligations. Once the Victoria workload disappears, MLAs re-orient their focus back to full-time constituency work. Ministers don’t have it that easy. They must carry on with their ministerial obligations (equivalent to those of a CEO of a small, medium, or large corporation, depending on the ministry) as well as their constituency responsibilities. I don’t envy ministers when we’re in Victoria and they have to add estimates and legislative debates to their workload, while being lobbied by every MLA because of their increased accessibility when the House is sitting. So, no, I’m not on vacation now that the session has ended, but I do have the luxury of being more focused on constituency matters and in getting around to the various communities in the riding. Constituency work is the most enjoyable and fulfilling part of this job, and I can’t always say the same about the nature of my work in Victoria when the legislature is in session. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

Thanks for Relay for Life support Question of the week Editor: I am writing to thank the people of Williams Lake for their continued support of the Canadian Cancer Society, in particular for their support of the eighth annual Williams Lake Relay For Life held June 2-3 at Boitanio Park. Thank you for sharing your strength and community spirit in support of cancer patients and their families. A very special note of thanks goes to the volunteer Williams Lake Relay For Life leadership committee and to all of the additional volunteers who contributed their time and energy during the weekend. Thank you also to the donors,

sponsors, and participants whose contributions enable the Canadian Cancer Society to continue its mission to eradicate cancer and to enhance the quality of life of those people living with cancer. Thirty-three cancer survivors completed their victory lap, 13 teams raised much-needed funds, and 83 participants walked or ran a part of the 12 hours in Williams Lake. This year, the Williams Lake Relay For Life has exceeded $36,000 in contributions to date, with pledges supporting cancer patients and their families in northern British Columbia through Canadian Cancer Society practical and peer-support programs. Your support ensures contin-

Budworm to be sprayed in region The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations plans to aerially treat up to 46,000 hectares of forest in the Cariboo to reduce populations of western spruce budworm. The proposed treatment locations are in the Cariboo-Chilcotin and 100 Mile House districts, covering approximately 30 sites within a 30-kilometre radius of Williams Lake. The pest management plan and maps of treatment areas can be viewed at the Cariboo Region Forest Health Program office at Suite 200, 640 Borland St., Williams


Lake or online at: http://www. We s t e r n _ S p r u c e _ B u d wo r m _ Spray_2012_Cariboo.htm. The biological agent Foray 48B will be applied by fixed-wing aircraft on or about the period from June 20 to July 4, 2012, weather permitting. The ministry says Foray 48B is a biological insecticide that is widely used in B.C. and is registered with the Organic Materials Review Institute. The active ingredient in Foray 48B is the naturally occurring bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis

var. kurstaki (Btk). The ministry says this spray only affects moth and butterfly larvae and can be used safely around humans and other animals; birds, household pets, fish and beneficial insects (including honey bees) are not affected. The western spruce budworm is an insect that is native to B.C. and the Pacific Northwest. In its larval stage, it defoliates Douglas fir, true firs, spruce and larch trees. A budworm outbreak has the potential to seriously harm or kill trees over large areas.

This fox was sitting on the side of the road a kilometre south of the Esler soccer fields Friday evening. The fox got up to leave after a second truck came driving by.

City CAO takes two-month leave Brian Carruthers, the city’s chief administrative officer, has taken a twomonth leave. At the Williams Lake

city council meeting Tuesday night, Mayor Kerry Cook said the CAO is expected to return to work Aug. 1 and that

Geoff Goodall, general manager of of planning and operations, will act as CAO until Carruthers returns.

Mayor Kerry Cook returns from FCM Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Mayor Kerry Cook has returned from the 75th Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) annual conference held in Saskatoon June 1-4, confident that communities across the country are standing united to lobby government for funding opportunities. With the theme being “strong cities, strong communities, strong Canada,” the conference highlighted that Williams Lake is on the right page, Cook says. “That whole piece around long-term financial planning and sustainable infrastructure funding, of which our city has put a resolution forward to the Union of BC Municipalities, which was also the focus of the BC Mayors Caucus, was re-

ally one of the main focuses of this whole convention.” Former NDP leader Jack Layton was honoured on Saturday, with his widow Olivia Chow there to hear the tribute. “Jack Layton had been a keynote speaker in the past,” Cook explains. “He was honoured for his past involvement with municipal governments.” While Prime Minister Stephen Harper addressed the 1,600 conference delegates via video conference, other political leaders such as Bob Ray, Thomas Mulcair and Elizabeth May were there to give keynote speeches. Cook says there were different meetings throughout the weekend, including a short session for resolutions, and individual caucus meetings for each province. “What was exciting

for the B.C. caucus this year is that Vancouver city councillor Raymond Louie was elected third vice-president on the FCM board. It was a highly contested position, because once you get in you can move up into the presidency. He was the successful candidate out of four campaigns.” The conference also saw Cook spending a lot of time networking with mayors from other communities. “Having the BC Mayors Caucus a few weeks ago, it was great to have the opportunity to catch up with many mayors within the province, even sitting on the plane talking with a mayor from Salmo and a councillor from Port Moody. It’s so valuable to be able to find out what’s working in other communities,” Cook says.

Williams Lake’s Shaylene Tucker competes in the barrel racing portion of the Kispiox Valley Rodeo June 2-3 near Hazelton. For local results from the rodeo see the Scoreboard on page A13.

SPORTS NOTEBOOK Saturday, June 9 COPA for Kids and Williams Lake Flying Club host free flights The Canadian Owners and Pilots Association and the Williams Lake Flying Club partner to host a free flying session for youth in the community June 9 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Williams Lake airport. Young people ages eight to 18 will have the opportunity to fly but to register must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. There will be entertainment, hot dogs and snacks with 80 to 100 kids expected to attend.

Sunday, June 10 Pedal by the Puddle

Soap box derby a first of its kind Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Lorne Doerkson, sales manager and partner at Cariboo GM, is inviting everyone in the community out to the first ever Williams Lake Soap Box Derby. “The course is going to go from the top of the hill by Cariboo GM on Fourth Avenue,� Doerkson said, adding the event will be held June 22 at 6 p.m. “There’s going to be some great head’s up racing.� The event is being held as a fundraiser for Kids Running for Kids, who are raising money for BC Children’s Hospital, and plan to deliver that money after running, relay-style for the distance it takes to get from Williams Lake to Vancouver this summer. There will also be a barbecue at the derby, with all of the proceeds going to KRFK. Adults and kids are invited to build their own soap boxes to enter in the races.

“People can enter however they want, as teams or individuals,� Doerkson said, noting sign up will be done the night of the races. “We’ll probably have three classes and we’ll make the classes based on combined weight between the car and driver.� Building a soap box is simple enough, he said, and noted kits are available in town or online. “There’s lots available in town to build these,� he said. “The deal with the soap boxes is it has to have brakes, and the driver will have to have a helmet on.� Doerkson said there should be some interesting cars entered in the races; however, the cars can be as simple as some wheels attached to a piece of plywood. “There are some units that sound like they’re going to be a bit fancier,� he said. “The car club is building one and it’s going to be something else. Leo Nieuwland from our shop has got an aluminum hood on his and it sounds like it’s headed for the spray booth soon.

The popular Pedal by the Puddle mountain bike event celebrates its fifth year in the lakecity this Saturday, June 10. The race features an “Enduro� format, is non-competitive and features a fun and social atmosphere. Registration must be completed by Saturday, June 9 at noon. Potential volunteers are also asked to contact Donna Bentham at dbentham@ To register, or for more information, visit

They can come down and sign up and race. We just want to have some fun. With the Laker’s Car

Club coming down with all their hot rods it should be really good and it’s a bit unique. “This is to celebrate hot rods and summer.�

Locals to compete at B.C. Provincial Cup of soccer Three Williams Lake girls are on their way to the B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup. The girls, Paige Gudbranson, Morgan Moore and Melissa Styran, are part of the Quesnel Denny’s Strikers U14 team. The Quesnel team cinched their spot in the B Cup last Saturday after a tough two-game battle with the Prince George Kodiaks. Though the Quesnel team, with the help of the three local girls, had the edge in possession, both matches ended in draws — the morning 0-0 and the afternoon

game 1-1. The winner then needed to be decided in a penalty kick shoot out. After six shots each, Quesnel came out with a 5-4 victory. Gudbranson, Moore and Styran became part of the Quesnel team through a series of events starting last fall, when their Williams Lake team travelled to Quesnel for a series of exhibition games with Quesnel and Prince George in Quesnel’s indoor soccer facility. During these meets coaches Beth Moore (Williams Lake), David Bladgon (Prince George) and Gilbert

Schotel (Quesnel) decided to join forces and enter a Cariboo United team in the Kelowna Ice Breaker tournament in early April of this year, which resulted in the girls taking home gold. Shortly after, when the Williams Lake girls learned that the Quesnel team would be unable to recruit enough players to form a team, they offered to join their new Quesnel friends. “The Williams Lake girls have fit in very well, both in terms of skill and socially with our group. We are very pleased to have them on our team,” said Gilbert

Schotel, Quesnel Youth Soccer technical director. Beth added: “Even though travel to Quesnel twice a week is a bit of a chore at times, the positive way Quesnel has welcomed us has made it worth it. The girls love it.” After finishing the Cariboo Youth Soccer League schedule (Williams Lake June 10 and 100 Mile House June 17) the girls will head to Kelowna July 5-8, where they will meet seven other teams from around the province to compete for the coveted Provincial Cup.

Pedal by the Puddle entrants on the rise Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Participation at this Sunday’s Fifth Annual Pedal by the Puddle enduro-format mountain bike race looks like it’s increasing again. Organizer Ivor McMahen said so far 81 people have registered for the race — up 11 riders from last year at the same time. “We’re ahead of last year which is nice,” McMahen said, noting participation has increased each year the race has been held. “Last year

we had 137 total and typically most of the entries pour in the last few days.” The race, wildly popular among not just locals, but also out-of-towners, situates itself on some of South Lakeside’s famous singletrack including sections of Rotnee, Twizzler, Cabin Loop, the South Lakeside Ridge, Moose Drops and the old Gun-A-Noot downhill, Guiness and Leppard Spots. The objective is to complete the greatest number of laps as an individual, or as part of a

team of two in six hours. The Pedal by the Puddle also features a Micro Pedal by the Puddle for youngsters, along with a 1.4-kilometre Mini Pedal by the Puddle for kids a bit older. McMahen said it’s nice to see more youth getting involved with this style of racing. “We are seeing a slow but steady increase in the number of under-20 participants in the main event which is good to see,” he said. “Traditionally that age group tends to do the shuttletype riding ... but some

of the more competitive riders in that age group have discovered if they can improve their cardiovascular fitness their downhill performance actually improves.” Scott Bicycles will be on hand demoing bikes for participants to test out around the course, and Kamloops’ legendary freerider Brett Tippie will be MCing the event. In addition, for riders exhausted from multiple laps around the course, Satya Yoga Studio will be providing a warmup session and recovery

yoga throughout the day. McMahen cautioned participants to get their registrations in early to avoid any problems. “It really is a fantastic setup,” he said. “It’s in the middle of some really great trails that are very suitable for this type of event.” The race kicks off at 10 a.m., but riders are asked to arrive by around 8:30 a.m. to take part in pre-race activities. Signin closes at 9:15 a.m. For more information, and for registration packages, visit www.

Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo showcases events Williams Lake’s Eagle View Equestrian Centre played host to its annual Horsin’ Around in the Cariboo May 26-27, showcasing an impressive display of horsemanship and equine events. “We had a lot of fun with our event this year, offering a smorgasbord of different events so the public could come see all the different activities we offer,” said Lori Rankin, manager of the Eagle View Equestrian Centre. “The featured event this year was an Equine Versatility Challenge

and Rankin. “Caz,” as he’s known, is a 10-year-old quarter horse and was ridden by Rankin at the event. Reserve champion was Devil’s Advocate, also known as Deavon — a five-year-old Oldenburg mare ridden and owned by Hayley Pinfold. Other events included buckle series cattle sorting, a hoof-n-woof (horse and dog agility), mini horse agaility and many great demons including: bridle-less cutting, reining, free jumping and hands free jump-

Alice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Wonderland on stage next week Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Nicole Curbello is only in Grade 8 but she has landed the role of Alice in the Williams Lake Secondary Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Musical Theatre production of Alice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Wonderland starting its run Tuesday, June 12. While just 14, Nicole already has a strong background in performance arts having played Shrek in a choir production at Cataline elementary and been the storyteller in the Studio Theatre production of Just So last year. Alice will be her biggest challenge yet. The musical will be a wonderfully colourful and charming event for the whole family with Alice arriving straight through the rabbit hole from high above the stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to flying,â&#x20AC;? Nicole says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the air I will be able to feel myself falling through the rabbit hole.â&#x20AC;? In Lewis Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book Alice in Wonderland, upon which the musical is based, director Sidonie Boll says Alice is wearing yellow, but they are dressing her in blue because that is the colour most people have seen Alice wear in the Disney productions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I splurged on fabric for her costumes because she is on stage in every scene in the play,â&#x20AC;? Boll says. While Aliceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costume may be in Disney colours Boll is proud to say the musical version they are doing is purely Canadian, written by Canadians Roy Surette and Sandra Head. The original script was for a small cast of six actors, but Boll says she has been given permission to expand the play to include a cast of 25 students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know the writers and they told me I could do what I want with the play and add more scenes to get more kids in it,â&#x20AC;? Boll says. Boll knows the writers because she played the part of Alice herself as a young professional actor when it was first staged at the Carousel Theatre in Vancouver. She was a seasoned actor of 29 at the time, but believes Nicole is well up to the challenge of the part despite her young age. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a better Alice than even I was,â&#x20AC;? Boll says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually these lead roles go to Grade 11 or 12 students but she was perfect for the part.â&#x20AC;? She says Stephanie Johannesen, who recently graduated from acting school and is featured in some prominent television commercials these days, was the last Grade 8 student at WLSS to land a lead role, Boll says. After the first run-through, Boll says she thought she might have to replace Nicole because project-

of work on her part, Boll says Nicole was projecting well and adding mannerisms of her own to the

character. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad I waited that week,â&#x20AC;? Boll says. In Just So Nicole says the actors were supported with microphones and she was just talking. She has taken singing lessons with Angela Sommers at Angelkeys Music Studio for three years, which she says has helped her to adjust to the big stage. She also plays the flute and piano and fits in lots of rehearsal time at noon and after school. Her brother and mother also run lines with her at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never memorize our lines â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we learn them until there wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be anything else to say,â&#x20AC;? Boll says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way everyone doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to think about what they are saying. You talk and respond as if you were really there.â&#x20AC;? Boll says Nicole has taken on a huge responsibility for someone so young and always with a smile on her face and never a complaint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a lot,â&#x20AC;? Nicole says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really realize how much went into the production of a play.â&#x20AC;? At first Nicole was shy about working with the older students but soon found her footing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little scary at first because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know any of them but once I started working with them and got to know them I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like such a little kid,â&#x20AC;? Nicole says. The musical, like the book, is lots of fun with numerous colourful costumes and beloved charactersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; the cards, flowers, caterpillar, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the Mad Hatter, and the White Knight. The show features some amazing costumes and props such as a baby that turns into a pig. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took a long time to figure out how to do that one,â&#x20AC;? Boll says. Retired teacher Jim Sims built a giant chair for Alice to sit on and an old fashioned camera that is part of the set. A special harness was also acquired for Aliceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flying scene. Boll says the musical, starts the way Carroll wrote the book with Alice Liddell and her sisters reading the story together, before she falls down the rabbit hole and into a fantasy world. Nicole says her favourite part of the play is when she is pronounced guilty of stealing a tart and everyone is running around after her. The cost of the production is about $15,000 of which Boll hopes to recoup $10,000 on ticket sales and the rest in program advertisements. Alice â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Wonderland is on stage at 7 p.m. June 12-16, June 2023 with a matinee and meet the actors at 1 p.m. June 23. Tickets are available at the school, The Hobbit House and The Open Book.

Young Naturalists visit research forest Julianne Trelenberg Special to The Tribune The Williams Lake Young Naturalists’ Club had another fantastic trip this month. We visited the Alex Fraser Research Forest with Cathy Koot. We hiked up to the top of a bluff exploring along the way. We saw many neat things, different types of insects and where they live, beautiful flowers, edible plants, and

evidence of forest fires past. We learned how to age a tree, and la piece de resistance, we saw a skunk wandering around below. At the top of the bluff we had an amazing view of the valley. While we were resting and enjoying the view we were treated to a spectacular show by a turkey vulture. There were so many curious minds, and so many neat things to see and hear.

Have You Considered a 50/50 Mortgage? Our next trip will be a voyageur canoe trip on Rose Lake at the end

of July. The Young Naturalists’ Club is a club

whose goal is to get youth outside and participating in nature.

The purple bins can be used year round for the recycling of clothing, soft items such as bedding, towels, draperies etc. People can also recycle accessories such as shoes and purses, and well-loved stuffy toys. The purple bins can be found at the Share Shed, Surplus Herby’s, Safeway and Canadian Tire. BBBS thanks all students, and their parents, for cleaning out their closets to participate in the program.

This means you get the best of both worlds – the security of fixed payments with the flexibility of a variable rate. With a hybrid mortgage product, half of your mortgage is locked into a five-year fixed rate and half is at a five-year variable rate.

The 50/50 mortgage product is well-suited to a variety of borrowers, including those who: • Would normally go fully variable but suspect prime rate is at its bottom • Aren’t comfortable being locked into a fully fixed rate • Can’t decide between a fixed or variable mortgage • Savvy first-time homebuyers Some features of the 50/50 mortgage include: • 20% annual lump-sum pre-payment privileges • 20% annual payment increase ability • Portability (the option to transfer your existing loan amount to a new property without penalty)

Hybrid mortgages – known as 50/50 mortgages – include both a fixed-rate and variable-rate component within one mortgage.

You can convert your variable-rate portion at any time without paying a penalty. As well, each portion of the 50/50 mortgage operates independently – like two separate mortgages – yet the product is registered on title as only one collateral charge.

Purple bins help BBBS recycle campaign Big Brothers and Big Sisters is in the midst of a “purple bin” awareness campaign. One of the strategies it has undertaken is to promote the use of the purple bins and have clothing drives at Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools. For every bag of clothing students brought into the school, a ballot was entered in their name for a $500 gift certificate to Caribou Ski Source for Sports. Williams Lake Secondary School held its drive earlier in the month. The winner was Spencer Neufeld.   The Columneetza secondary draw was held Friday, June 1 at lunch. The grand prize winner of that draw is Grade 8 student Chloe Storoschuk.


Although there was a time in recent years when mortgage experts considered a variable-rate as the obvious choice to save consumers money over the long term, with fixed rates remaining near historic lows, a 50/50 mortgage is becoming a great alternative!

“Inspired to Print” Workshop with Jenn Robins, Victoria printmaker

Beginner to Advanced Printmaking Workshop

Grad parade this Saturday Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer Motorists should be on the lookout for students in a bit more excited state than usual this week, being it’s the big week and weekend for high school graduates. The formal graduation ceremonies actually start today, May 7 with the GROW/Skyline graduation ceremonies for 56 students taking place at 1 p.m. in the Marie Sharpe Elementary School gymnasium. Friday night Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary grads will be participating in rehearsals at the Cariboo Memorial Complex where the formal graduation ceremonies will take place during the day Saturday, followed by the Dry Grad parade and Dry Grad festivities. The Columneetza Secondary School graduation ceremonies for 135 students are set for 9:30 a.m. in the main arena at the complex followed by the Williams Lake Secondary School graduation ceremonies for 109 students at 1 p.m. The grad parade will start marshaling on Second Avenue North by Sacred Heart Catholic School by 5:30 p.m. and will start rolling at 6:30 p.m. The parade will travel south on Second Avenue, left on Borland Street, left on Third Avenue, and right onto Proctor Street to the complex for arrivals starting about 7:30 p.m. The grad parade in Williams Lake is usu-

ally quite interesting for viewers with students riding on horseback, in horse-drawn carriages, in vintage vehicles, on trailered boats, on bicycles, in big trucks and even in the shovel of a backhoe last year. Parents are encouraged not to stop traffic flow for picture opportunities, say organizers. There will be photo opportunities at the back of the complex and inside the complex. Each graduate will receive two tickets which will allow two family or friends at a time to enter the main arena to see the prom decorations and take pictures. The visiting session is between 7:30 and 9 p.m. Visitors will enter through the side door of the complex on the Boitanio Park side of the building. For fire safety reasons the number of people visiting inside at a time is limited. After viewing is complete the family or friends will drop off their prom pass at the exit so that it may be used by other people waiting to view the prom area. Guests entering the complex may be asked to have their purses and bags searched for safety purposes, organizers say. Visitors will leave the complex at 9 p.m. when the prom and other Dry Grad festivities for grads and their escorts will begin. This year’s theme, chosen by the grads, is Stars and Constellations, says Orlena McColl, who is heading up the decorations committee.

Grads and escorts will be able to dance, play on the “big” toys and participate in different games in the carnival-themed activities area. There is also a hypnotist who will be putting on performances throughout the night. “It will be a fun-filled event, and About Face Photography will be on site for professional photos between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m., and John Dell will be capturing it all as he is producing DVDs of the entire event, which will be available for purchase,” McColl says. There will be prizes drawn throughout the night, but grads must be present to win the prizes. Grads and escorts who leave the building early will not be permitted back in the building. Food will be served throughout the night, but breakfast will not be provided. Parents or guardians will pick up grads and escorts between 4 and 5 a.m. Sunday. Grad committee cochair Betty Turatus says the dry grad committee had a few challenges this year with their grant-inaid, a solution for which has been worked wonderfully with the city and CRD, and with finding volunteers. She says having more volunteers would have meant shorter shifts at Dry Grad but preparations are going smoothly. “The grad event for this weekend is going great,” Turatus says. “The decoration committee starts on Wednesday (June 6) morning to do the set up. They will continue until they are done on Friday.

Anyone wanting to help is welcome to go to the complex any time from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.” She says students were also to receive their last newsletter about Dry Grad requirements on Wednesday along with their visitor prom passes for family and friends, and baggage check tags for the rehearsal and baggage check-in on Friday evening. “It is important the grad brings his/her bag and their guest’s bag to rehearsal on Friday,” Turatus says. “It might be a good idea for parents to ask for the newsletter if they haven’t seen it.” While teachers are not expected to participate in the formal graduation ceremonies due to job action related to stalled contract negotiations, Turatus says the teacher job action has not affected the Dry Grad event which is a parent/community organized event. She thanks the community for its “continually fantastic support” for Dry Grad whether it is via donations of funds or prizes, the opportunity to do fundraising or volunteering. “It really does take the whole community to make the event a success,” Turatus says. “The committee this year has been great and it has been a pleasure working with all of them.” Dry Grad co-chair Bill Page says the event is quite expensive to put on costing about $50,000. to cover costs for food, entertainment, arena rental and the like. He says the truck raffle will likely be

Cariboo Art Society show opens tonight Wonder is the theme of the Cariboo Art Society’s 68th annual show and sale opening at the Station House Gallery tonight, June 7. The June show features the latest works of 11 art society members, Sharon Prevette, Elisabeth Hoelderl, Karen Mayers, Kris Andrews, Jennifer Bazan, Yvette Rogers, Lorne Lazzarotto, Gladys Wheatley, Anne Kohut, Marilyn Dickson, Jenni Bazan and Tracy Pajamaki. Everyone’s vision of “wonder” is different of

course and works in this show reflect the wonderful memories and experiences of individual members working in their own styles and mediums. For the past two years the artists have met at 10 a.m. every Saturday morning in the new Central Cariboo Arts Centre next to city hall. The art society has a history in the Cariboo dating back to founding members such as A.Y. Jackson, Vivian Cowan and Sonia Cornwall, who while gone now, continue to inspire more

recent members with the legacy of work they have left. During their Saturday sessions members new and old glean fresh ideas from each other. Trying new mediums is part of the process of learning. The opening reception is tonight, June 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. and everyone is welcome to attend. Many of the featured artists will be there to discuss their work and maybe inspire “wonder” in a new crop of people wishing to enrich their artistic side.

The next two gallery openings in July and August will be on Wednesday evenings rather than the traditional Thursday evenings to accommodate the Performances in the Park which are held on Thursday evenings during the summer. Community Roots: Inspirations From the Potato House, will open July 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. followed by the play Potato Dreams. The opening for the show Conspiracy Case by Edwin Janzen, will be Aug. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Brain injury society in 10th year Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The Caribou Brain Injury Society is celebrating its 10th anniversary and it’s an anniversary that coincides with Brain Injury Awareness Month, this June. The society is a nonprofit organization that supports, advocates and serves brain injury individuals and their families by helping them face the challenges of living with a brain injury. “We provide advocacy, one-to-one support, group support, peer support, awareness and prevention, brain injury education, and life skills support,” says Shilo Labelle, executive director of the society. Generally the society hosts a group meeting once a week — focusing on coping strategies, or simply talking about current events. “Sometimes we’ll go bowling even,” Labelle adds. Following the Whatever it Takes model, the society meets with a survivor to help determine what supports that survivor needs. “Is it housing? Is it applying for persons with disability funding? Or to get them connected with the services in Williams Lake that can help them. Is it budgeting? Is it education around what brain injury is and looking at coping strategies? Maybe they need group support to help them realize that they are not all alone in this journey.” What are ways a person can be helped to realize that things will get better?

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Shilo Labelle invites the public to the open house celebration for the 10th anniversary of the Caribou Brain Injury Society that will take place at the New World coffee shop from 2 to 4 p.m. June 20. “We’re helping with not only the physical challenges, but the cognitive challenges as well and the emotional challenges, whether that’s one-on-one, peer support or group support. Whatever it takes to get them back to their new normal.” Throughout the year, the society also provides a nine-week education series — Understanding Brain Injury and Coping Strategies — that’s free for survivors. In the past, the series has been offered to professionals as well. Prevention is crucial and one of the things the society does every year is go into elementary schools in the month of June to

talk to students about brain injuries and ways to prevent them from happening. In November, the society conducts a shopping cart safety program because one of the leading causes of brain injuries in children under five years old is falling out of shopping carts. “For four years we’ve gone into Zellers, Save-On Foods, Safeway and Canadian Tire and we set up a little table with information and we talk to families about shopping cart safety and what they can do to keep little ones safe.” In the United States, every year 20,000 plus injuries occur from children falling out of

shopping carts, Labelle adds. “Those are brain injuries. We don’t have those statistics for Canada.” They are also giving pamphlets to pizza places in Williams Lake for distribution this month that contain some eye-opening statistics. “One in 26 Canadians live with a brain injury, an estimated 1.3 million. Within in the next hour six Canadians will suffer a brain injury, one in five sports-related injuries are to the head, and brain injuries are the number one killer and disabler of people under 44 years of age.” Labelle’s area of service covers Williams Lake to 100 Mile House, where she spends 18 hours a week with individuals that have brain injuries, aside from group support. She’s been with the society for six years. Before that she was an Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder worker, another type of brain injury but organic, she explains. “I was also a youth worker for five years, and my parents were foster parents for 18 years, so it’s been my lifestyle working with people with learning and physical disabilities and behavioural challenges, so that’s how I got involved.” On June 20, the society will host an Open House at New World coffee shop on Oliver Street from 2 to 4 p.m. During the afternoon society staff will be there sharing information around acquired brain injuries. Everyone is welcome.

Bass problem still not resolved Bruce MacLeod Special to The Tribune The bass problem in the Beaver Lakes system is apparently still acute. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans is still working on eradication, but has not been successful to date. The Horsefly River Roundtable has not received an up-to-date re-

port recently. The last report I heard is that only the one bass had ever been seen in Big Lake, but this was last year’s information. For those who are unaware of the damage these bass can do, they will ultimately wipe out all other species of fish in the Beaver Lakes including trout, burbot, chub, and squaw fish. A21

Some people fear they might escape to the Quesnel River and somehow into Quesnel lake, and wipe out everything. Bass prefer warmer water, so this is unlikely to happen; however, the whole problem would never have occurred had someone not transported bass from somewhere else to the Beaver Lake

system in the first place. The next time the roundtable gets a report from DFO, I will ask how much money has been spent to date on the eradication program, and pass this information on. If you catch a bass in the Beaver Lakes please do the right thing and report it to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

“They call the Cariboo home” Mitch and Janette Minchau cruise to new adventures Erin Hitchcock photo

Janette Minchau Special to The Tribune It all started when they said “I do.” Mitch Minchau and Janette Armstrong drove all over Alberta and British Columbia to find a place to start their lives. In 1981, they fell in love with the Cariboo and moved from Edmonton, Alta. to a small acreage on the Likely Road and have been there ever since. Mitch was a Fisheries technician but a carpenter by heart and decided to build a log home. Back in the ‘80s, one was able to get enough logs for a home from a cash sale for $25. In the winter of ‘82 the logs were cut down and hauled to the acreage and in the spring construction began. For two city slickers, they really had many challenges. In two years, the house was completed and they started their family. Three children, Jessie, Matthew, and Kallie, whom kept them busy with 4-H and all sorts of projects.

noe or row boat, but a 27-foot cabin cruiser. Special lumber known as vertical grain fir was cut from logs from the Caribou Lake area, and a band saw was

used from Big Lake. It has taken more than 10 years for the boat to be completed with more than 3,000 hours of craftsmanship involved. The hull was built upside down and the wood frames were covered with plywood. The lumber had to be steamed and bent to obtain the streamline curves the boat required. The hull was turned over and the wood was fiber-glassed and the inside was treated with epoxy to pressure the wood. The cabin was constructed to provide beds, bathroom, kitchen, and a lounge area. The neighbours would joke when it rained for a couple days that “the Ark” must almost be done. This August will be the maiden voyage of the “Makai,” Hawaiian for Towards the Sea. They intend to have some great adventures on her out on the B.C. Coast and Quesnel Lake with family and friends. When they retire, they don’t have to move anywhere, as they have a little piece of Heaven on Earth they call home right here in the Cariboo.
