City soaked Road crews, city staff and residents wade through weekend drenching BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Larry Abenante did everything except build an ark and pair up animals on the weekend as several days of heavy rainfall created Biblical floodwater complications along the Columbia River and throughout the city. The city’s manager of public works and an eightmember city crew fought the forces of nature and rising waters as mudslides took out streets in several areas, with massive mounds of soggy earth, forcing the closure of the “S” Hill— from AM Ford going down into East Trail—Brown Street in West Trail, and Sand Pit Road in Sunningdale. Engineers will be involved in the “S” Hill “I’ve never shut down, said Abenante, seen (the to see what caused the Columbia slide. On Friday a water main River) this burst in Sunningdale when high.” a torrent of storm water coursing through the veins LARRY ABENANTE of the city’s infrastructure backed up the sewer system near the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre, spilling water and sediment onto Columbia Avenue. It was nonstop for the weekend until Sunday afternoon, said Abenante. Crews, heavy equipment, and even Abenante himself working a shovel to clear sewer drains, pitched in to deal with the water. “You have to deal with this as it happens,” he said. “There’s nothing you can do but clean it up and take care of (the situation).” Abenante was on call for the entire weekend since the working week ended Friday afternoon. A water main break in Sunningdale that night started the first chapter of the gospel according to Mother Nature. As a city crew began to dig into the situation, heavy rain slammed the city, commanding a repeat performance Saturday morning. The storm’s machinations maximized the capacity of two of the city’s creeks by noon, prompting Abenante to call in another city crew and equipment in to clear the channels, setting up secondary intakes to ensure the excess water had a place to go. McQuarrie Creek between Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital and J.L Crowe Secondary School stopped traffic around midday when it jumped its channel and created a new creek bed across a neighbourhood road. Gorge Creek in West Trail had a mudslide as well, with city equipment and workers being called in to clear the trash racks.


The weekend downpour brought water up in the rivers and down from the hills. In Trail even boats were unable to use the launch and city staff had to secure the wharf. Gyro Park beach picnic tables were off limits. And the rainfall brought debris and mini mud slides throughout the area including mud which washed down in East Trail on Victoria Street and onto Fourth Avenue.

A little bit of rain didn’t dampen the spirits of motorcycle riders who came out for the inaugural Waneta (Trail) Rotary Show and Shine. Approximately 20 bikes registered for the event, which raised money for Rotoplast and the Greater Trail Hospice Society. Above, Kerry Lockhart (left) and Ian McLeod weathered the rain to judge the various categories of bikes. Unfortunately, Saturday’s downpour washed out the planned group ride.

Mudslides wreak havoc on roadways FROM PAGE 1 Catch basins in low lying areas like Shavers Bench had some major water problems averted when debris—leaves, sediment and grass—plugging up the water routes was cleared by neighbourhood residents, Abenante noted. Even the mountains got into the act. A “significant piece� of a mountain came down near the Sunningdale “Y� in a landslide Saturday afternoon. However, the slide was not removed since it did not impact a roadway. The waters of the Columbia River have all but consumed the city’s boat dock in Gyro Park, as well as the park’s beach area. The river is so high the city had to shut down the dock and the beach, tying off the boat dock, Abenante explained.



“I’ve never seen (the Columbia River) this high,� said the 18-year veteran of the city’s public works crew. “If the river goes up another foot it could have gone down river. It’s up to the top of the pilings.� The city will be extending the pilings Monday in order to give the dock a further range of travel if waters continue to rise. City crews were joined in the water world work by the Trail Fire Department (TFD) firefighters who helped place sand bags on Columbia Avenue, cleared several storm drains around the city, pumped out basements, and performed a rescue on the river. “It was just an overturned boat, and nobody was with it,� said TFD Capt. Grant Tyson, noting the boat was later claimed.

In the Casino area mud flows and water poured forth out of the FortisBC right-ofway Saturday morning, running out of the sand bank hills of the mountainside and washing debris out onto Casino Road. Emcom Services road crews had the area cleared that day. A few hours later Highway 22 near Birchbank Golf and Country Club succumbed to a mudslide and washout, giving highway crews a workout to clear the channel and the remains on the highway Saturday evening. The city and the regional district opened the provincial emergency centre in the Trail Community Centre on Saturday to help people and advise them on the proceedings taking place throughout Greater Trail.

REGIONAL West Kootenay weather turns deadly BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Heavy rains and rising waters also created complications across the West Kootenay, resulting in one death and evacuation orders being issued by the neighbouring regional district in three affected areas. The Regional District of Central Kootenay put evacuation orders into place in the Pass Creek and Goose Creek areas north of the Highway 3A junction, as well the Slocan Valley West Road— affecting 30 homes—and Broadwater Road, where a mudslide, north of Robson, impacted access to Deer Park, Syringa Park and Scotties Marina. The mudslide forced the evacuation of one area residence, while extreme heavy winds knocked down an estimated four dozen trees in the West Lake area of Christina Lake near Grand Forks. On Saturday a 72-year-old

man went to check the water levels outside his Pass Creek home and was found drowned Sunday morning by search and rescue teams from Castlegar and Nelson. Rising waters washed out the bridge to the man’s property on Saturday afternoon. The identity of the body has not yet been confirmed. “Pass Creek has doubled in capacity as a result of the rains,” said Emcon Services’ division manager, Joe Mottishaw. Meanwhile a flood watch continues for the Kootenay River that flows into the Columbia River in Trail, according to the B.C. Rivers Forecast Centre. A release from the centre Friday noted rivers have been responding to rapid snowmelt and wet conditions over the past three weeks as warmer weather reduces the remaining snow pack. A low pressure system off of Washington brought warm and wet weather across the province on the weekend, but


dropped the heaviest rainfall in the West Kootenay region. As a result, Redfish Creek near Harrop is currently topping out its 50-year high flow rate, with the Slocan River the highest it has been in five years. However, additional rises are expected early this week. Ferry service was interrupted Sunday at Glade, the Upper Arrow Lake (southbound) and into Harrop as floating debris compromised ferry cables stretching across the water. And with Kootenay Lake at its thirdhighest level in 39 years, the situation could be repeated this week as the Forecast Centre said inflow levels to lake were still increasing. Highway 1 was also closed in both directions on the weekend between Three-Valley Gap and Revelstoke because of a mudslide 15 kilometres west of the town, with waits of up to four hours at Galena Bay ferry crossing.


Students try to limit bottled water BY ARNE PETRYSHEN Rossland News

Three Rossland Secondary School students embarked on a project five weeks ago to lower the prevalence of bottled water wherever they could. The Grade 8 trio of Maggie Chan, Dakota Mular and Kaiga LewisBelle set out on an inquiry-based learning mission which had to relate back to water. The group decided that they wanted to find out the effects that water has on the environment and other areas and so began research on it.

That would eventually culminate in a presentation for the superintendent of School District 20 and their own principal, with the results being no more water bottles at professional development days, instead they will be replaced by jugs of tap water. Chan said the project would save a lot of water, as it takes much more water to create the plastic bottle than the amount of water it holds. Lewis-Belle agreed, saying the need for people to use water

FOR THE RECORD The Community in Bloom (CiB) budget from the City of Trail is not $140,000— as was reported in the story “Plant theft a growing concern,” Trail Daily Times, June 21—but $125,000. The budget includes historical and neighbourhood signs, clean-up programs, tree planting, maintenance, running the CiB truck, equipment purchases, judging, competition and symposium fees, city wages, irrigation lines, soil, manure, fertilizer, the CiB float, any new projects, plants, shrubs, trees and flowers, promotional materials, and some contracted help.

bottles in areas like the Kootenays, where fresh clean water is abundant is “ a product of a consumer society.” The project was a part of their science class, but seeing the potential that the girls were working with, teacher Vicki Trussler suggested that they present in front of the superintendent as a way to promote a change. “They put this amazing project together and presented it. It was a slick presentation and they managed to convince them. And they’re going to move on and see if they can get bottled water banned from other public events,” said Trussler. “They’ve been working on this project for the past five weeks during class time. It’s an inquiry-based project, so they’re allowed to really explore their interests. The only thing is it had to do with water issues. They presented it in front of our superintendent and director of instruction.”

The girls even put in a few calls to a major water bottling company to find out what chemicals go into the bottles, which could potentially leach out. In fact, they never could get a straight answer on the potential harms, though the company representatives did say that they recommend using the bottles only once. The girls said that at the start of next school year, if they continue on with their project, they will make recommendations to get rid of water bottles in vending machines in the school. They also have plans to petition Ferraro Foods and other local shops to discontinue selling water bottles in Rossland. Mular said that it really doesn’t make sense for people to be drinking bottled water, as it contributes to a lot of waste and 88 per cent of the bottles aren’t recycled, ending up in the trash instead.

New electricity rates coming BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Your electricity bill is going down. Maybe. Starting July 1 FortisBC residential electricity customers will be dealing with a new residential conservation rate on their bill that rewards people with lower rates for lower usage, inflicting a little more pain for higher current consumption. The provincial power company is establishing a two-level rate structure next month, offering a lower rate for the first block of electricity used by residential customers, and a higher rate for use that exceeds the first block threshold. The move was predicated earlier this year by a decision from the BC Utilities Commission to implement this type of rate, said Neal Pobran, Fortis BC corporate communications advisor, in a press release Friday. “FortisBC was directed by the BC Utilities Commission to implement this type of rate which is intended to

encourage conservation and support our customers to use less electricity,” he said. “The new rate is designed to recover the same amount of revenue from residential customers in total.” The change means the basic monthly customer charge drops almost $1 to $29.65 (from $30.52), while the charge per kilowatt hour— up to 1,600 kilowatt hours of electricity used over a two-month billing period—sits at 8.258 cents, jumping to 12.003 cents for electricity used above that amount. That first 1,600 kWh block of electricity used every two months will be billed at a lower rate than the current FortisBC flat rate. However, rates for commercial, wholesale, lighting and irrigation customers will remain the same. As well, the average FortisBC electricity customer uses 2,100 kWh every two months—500 kWh over the first tier—will see no significant changes to their monthly cost of electricity under the residential conservation rate.

The parents of eight boys who streaked through Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary say their kids faced punishment exceeding their crime. On June 14 during the lunch hour, the eight senior students dropped their clothes and ran through the school naked. Such shenanigans, according to some parents, have become a traditional graduation prank at the school. Principal Allan Buggie, who has been at the school for two years, is not turning the other cheek, and suspended the students for three days and told them they were not allowed to show up to the cap-and-gown Grade 12 commencement ceremonies. One of the streakers, Dwight Lilly,17, and his mother Debby are not happy with the punishment meted out by the school principal. “He just said his mind is made up. It’s not changing, and that’s the way it’s going to be,” Lilly said. “He said there are no pranks at his school.” She said the consequences represent a new level of punishment for the offense. There is one boy who won a scholarship, but won’t have the honour of receiving it at commencement, Lilly added. Surrey School District spokesperson Doug Strachan said there’s no specific district policy regarding graduation pranks, but there are rules of conduct for staff and students. Buggie could not be reached for comment.

VANCOUVER - The largest public-sector union in British Columbia says it has asked a mediator to “book out” of contract talks with the provincial government. The B.C. Government Employees Union says two days of mediation this week failed to produce any meaningful progress. Both sides have been talking since January, but negotia-

tions are deadlocked over several issues, including wages. Union members voted 82 per cent in favour of job action last month to back contract demands. Mediator Debbie Cameron was then appointed to try to resolve the dispute. The union representing about 65,000 members says its bargaining committee did not take the decision lightly but has exhausted all its options.

Flood fears spread out across the province THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - At least 1,240 British Columbians are facing flood-evacuation alerts and another 165 are under evacuation orders as a low-pressure weather system anchored off Oregon continues to dump heavy rains around the province. The weather system, which is expected to remain over the province until Wednesday, has dumped about 25 millimetres of rain on the South Coast since Friday night and another 48 millimetres in the southern Interior, said a meteorologist with Environment Canada. While river levels in the Fraser Valley are expected to remain high over the weekend, residents will see a slight reprieve from the threat of flooding during the middle of next week until another pulse of water flows south from the north, said an official with the B.C. River Forecast Centre.

No request for assistance from troops has yet gone out, but an emergency official noted Saturday he’s in regular contact with Canadian Forces personnel who are working in several operations’ centres. Chris Duffy, executive director of emergency co-ordination for Emergency Management BC., said military officials are in close contact with the provincial emergency co-ordination centre and a regional centre in Surrey. So seriously are officials taking the threat of flooding though that Emergency Management BC’s 24-7 co-ordination centre is operational, as are the provincial emergency co-ordination centre and three regional centres, said Duffy. Around the province, 19 local emergency centres are now active, and officials have issued four declarations of local states of emergency, and evacuation orders

in four communities and alerts in another 10 communities, he added. On Saturday morning, the District of Maple Ridge, located east of Vancouver and on the Fraser, issued evacuation alerts to 43 homes in an historic and established community not protected by dikes, said municipal spokesman Fred Armstrong. Officials in Sicamous have evacuated 33 people after rain-swollen creeks spilled their banks and damaged homes, bridges and highways. The District of Sicamous on Shuswap Lake declared a local state of emergency Saturday night and issued a do-not-use water notice for one water system.. RCMP Const. Pat Pyper says a local highway also appears have been washed away in two or three sections, and officials plan to use a houseboat to evacuate some residents.

NATIONAL Shoppers eyeing deals south of the border


THE CANADIAN PRESS LANE, DAVID KEITH — passed away suddenly at his home on June 2, 2012. Keith was born on August 21, 1936 in Rossland and lived most of his life there in the family home. He worked at the Post Office in Castlegar for a short period of time, but spent the majority of his working career at Cominco in Trail. Keith was predeceased by his father Arthur in 1952, brother Bruce in 1961, mother Gladys in 1998, sister Beverley Planedin in 2000 and brother-in-law Bill Planedin in 2002. He was highly involved with the Boy Scouts of Canada for over 50 years and volunteered regularly at Columbia View Lodge (where his Mother spent her last days). He was also an active member of the United Church in Rossland. Keith loved his cats, enjoyed going for coffee with friends, participated regularly in the Senior Chef program and welcomed time spent with family. He was a classic gentleman with an unique sense of humour and will be greatly missed by all. Keith is survived by one sister, Judy (Willi) Wiesinger, of Corvallis, Oregon; three nephews: John (Susan) Wiesinger of Chico, CA, Brent (Cheryl) Wiesinger of Albany, Oregon and David Planedin (Phyllis) of Parksville; three nieces: Linda (Bob) Grieve of Grand Forks, Brenda (Alan) van der Holt of Nelson and Marlene (Ben) Reed of Edmonton, Alberta. A memorial service will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, June 30, 2012 at St. Andrews United Church in Rossland. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Scouts Canada/Camp Tweedsmuir, Box 1620, Scout Road, Fruitvale BC, V0G 1L1 or Columbia View Lodge/Recreation Program, 2920 Laburnum Drive, Trail BC, V1R 4N2. *** MAYNE, ANNA LOUISE — Born May 30, 1931 – Died June 18, 2012. Anna was born in Grand Forks, B.C. She met and married Doug in 1951, lived in B.C, moved to Ontario until her return to B.C

in 1964. She was a cook, homemaker, enjoyed bowling, cards, bingo and especially lotto and her trips to the casinos. One of the last wishes our mother had was to buy and give everyone present on June 16, 2012 a scratch ticket which we had to scratch in the room with her. One of us got a free ticket! She taught us all that a home is always open to those who need a bed, a meal or someone to talk to. Her sense of humour and laughter was always endearing especially when us kids could try her patience. Anna was predeceased by her parents Bert and Muriel Cooper, her loving husband Doug (1979), twin of Deb’s (1955), daughter Heather (1962) and great granddaughter Allyssa (2002) as well as two brothers and two sisters. Anna is survived by her 7 children, Steve (Loreen), Earl, Bob (Gail), Deb (Carl Lysohirka), Bill, Victor (Daphane) and Pam (Rick Moorhead); 17 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, sisters Darlene (Al Hunchak), Mavis Campbell, and brother Lloyd Cooper. So, we say “have a safe journey, enjoy all the rest of the family now with you, we wish you peace, and yes, we will remember that on Saturday, June 16, 2013 you opened your eyes and said, Happy Thoughts.â€? A very special thank you to our Aunt Darlene for being the rock in our lives for the past year, and also to Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ for understanding Pam and Deb’s sense of humour while making her arrangements. Thank you to the staff of 3rd floor medical, Poplar Ridge and C.V.L for the care given to Mom, and also to the family who was with her in her last days. God bless you all, and remember, Happy thoughts. Cremation has taken place, her ashes have been placed. A celebration of Anna’s life will take place on June 30, 2013 - this would have been Mom and Dad’s 63rd Anniversary. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at

OTTAWA Canadians are in a U.S. shopping state of mind this summer thanks to changes in regulations that allow them to buy more without paying duty, a new survey suggests. The Canadian PressHarris Decima poll on relaxed cross-border shopping limits that went into effect June 1 found a large majority in favour of the changes - and 54 per cent of those planning a trip stateside said they intended to spend more. Additionally, four in 10 said they were likely to purchase more dutyfree goods. The telephone survey of 1,000 was conducted between June 14 and 18 and is considered accurate plus or minus 3.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. As outlined in the March budget, the duty-free threshold on stays longer than 24 hours rose to $200 from $50 beginning this month. The limit on stays longer than 48 hours increased to $800 from the current two5)&,005&/":n4 05& &/":n4 0/-:

tiered levels of $400 and $750, depending on the length of stay. In the poll, seven in 10 Canadians said they supported the higher duty-free limits, and eight of 10 of vacationers to the U.S. backed the changes. “The potential number of Canadians travelling to the U.S. this summer is over four million,� said Patricia Thacker, Harris Decima’s vice-president of travel and leisure. “With 54 per cent likely to purchase more under the new dutyfree limits, that’s over two million Canadians spending more in the U.S. this summer alone.� The changes have been criticized by the Retail Council of Canada as just one more blow to merchants who cope with higher costs and must compete with U.S. competitors that often get a better deal from suppliers. With the new rules in place for a little more than three weeks, it is still too early to determine if Canadians have stepped up their shopping habits, said Karen Proud of the

Rio+20: Vengeance too long delayed


here was no law against genocide in the early 1940s; it only became an internationally recognised crime after the worst genocide of modern history had actually happened. Similarly, there is no law against “ecocide” now. That will only come to pass when the damage to the environment has become so extreme that large numbers of people are dying from it even in rich and powerful countries. They are already dying from the effects of environmental destruction in some poor countries, but that makes no difference because they are powerless. By the time it starts to hurt large numbers of people in powerful countries, twenty or thirty years from now, most of the politicians who conspired to smother any substantial progress at the Rio+20 Earth Summit will be safely beyond the reach of any law. But eventually there will be a law. Rio+20, which ended last Friday, was advertised as a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity to build on the achievements of the original Earth Summit, held in the same city twenty years ago. That extraordinary event produced a legally binding treaty on biodiversity, an agreement on combat-

even bothered. “This is an outcome that makes nobody happy. My job was to make everyone equally unhappy,” said Sha Zukang, SecretaryGeneral of the conference, but that is not strictly true. Governments seeking to avoid commitments are happier than activists who wanted some positive results from the conference, and the hundreds of large corporations that were represented at Rio are happiest of all. How did it end up like this? Global greenhouse gas emissions have grown by 48 percent in the past 20 years, we have lost another 3 million square kilometres (1.15 million sq. mi.) of forest, , and the world’s population has grown by 1.6 billion – yet there is less sense of urgency than there was in 1992. You can’t just blame the economy: Rio+20 would probably have ended just as badly if there had been no financial crash in 2008. Twenty years ago the issues of climate change, biodiversity, preservation of oceans and forests, and sustainable development were relatively fresh challenges. Moreover, the world had just emerged from a long Cold War, and there was plenty of energy and hope around. Now everybody understands how tough the

challenges are, and how far apart are the interests of the rich and the poor countries. We now have a 20-year history of defeats on this agenda, and there is a lot of defeatism around. Politicians are always reluctant to be linked to lost causes, and the struggles against poverty and environmental destruction now seem to fall into that category. Thus we sleepwalk towards terrible disasters – but that doesn’t absolve our leaders of responsibility. We didn’t hire them to follow; we hired them to lead. At the recent World Congress on Justice, Law and Governance for Environmental Sustainability, one of the events leading up to the Rio+20 conference, a group of “radical” lawyers proposed that “ecocide” should be made a crime. They were only radical in the sense that a group of lawyers agitating for a law against genocide would have been seen as radical in 1935. One day, after many great tragedies have occurred, there will be a law against ecocide. But almost all the real culprits will be gone by then.

Elected officials need more foresight Over the last few years, the Kootenay Boundary Regional District, the East End Services Committee and some elected representatives of local towns and villages have missed out on the opportunity to enhance the south Columbia region’s long term development. I refer to the delay in building a versatile airport that provides an optional secure boarding area at the Waneta B.C. location (Castlegar pitch for WestJet service gets regional support, June 22). Having one airline service the area consistently from Waneta to Vancouver is an excellent start. Too bad some of those who have elected/

appointed decision-making authority are so short-sighted they don’t consider air access to Kelowna and/or Calgary and points east doable from the more reliable Waneta location. Perhaps there are just too many elected representatives who have no skin in the game and don’t care about advancing this area. A juicy stipend is good enough. Well, summer’s here and you can go back to snoozing. What’s the saying? You snooze, you lose. What a missed opportunity to bring long term future prosperity and families to our region. Families to keep our

schools filled. Speaking of schools, Ray Masleck (Numbers don’t add up in on-going school debate, June 22) forgot to mention why there was such a protest from those “down the hill”. At the time, trustees from Castlegar, Rossland, Fruitvale and Montrose had voted to close down Glenmerry Elementary and Webster Elementary so that RSS would remain open. Today is another day. A new set of trustees has been elected and a new Superintendent appointed. Hopefully they are able to make decisions based on merit. Rose Calderon Trail

New legislation for dental hygienists A dental hygienist is educated and trained in their profession with a focus on the prevention of oral disease and the promotion of oral health. In BC, the legislation permits a dental hygienist to own and operate their own dental hygiene practice. But what many of you may not have been

aware of is the following: Currently in BC, a registered dental hygienist cannot provide any dental hygiene services for you if you have not been to your dentist for an exam within the last 365 days. However, on March 31, 2012 the Minister of Health, Hon. Mike de Jong

announced new legislation in regards to ‘The 365 Day Rule’. Dental hygienists that meet additional education and experience requirements must apply for and be granted permission in order to qualify to work in this category. If your registered dental hygienist meets these requirements

and is approved they will then be able to provide you with dental hygiene services exempt from ‘The 365 Day Rule’. This legislation comes into effect July 3, 2012 and we hope it will increase the public’s access to dental hygiene services. Denise Pawlyshyn Castlegar

Harper’s trade coup a murky one An editorial from the Toronto Star After a stumbling start, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has finally managed to wangle an invitation for Canada to talks to create a powerful new AsiaPacific free trade zone. Fuzzy as the details are, it’s an initiative worth exploring. Canada needs to diversify trade, given the struggling American economy and Europe’s debt crisis, and the boom in East Asia and Latin America. We also need to protect the trade deals we have. While the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) talks are in what Harper describes as a “fairly preliminary” stage, they fit nicely with his drive to build business abroad. The negotiators aim to create a trade zone that encompasses not only the U.S., Canada and Mexico, but also Chile, Peru, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and Brunei. That’s a $20-trillion market of 650 million people. The talks aim to “build on” the existing North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade pacts by reducing tariffs, prying open government procurement, strengthening protection for intellectual property and harmonizing regulations.

Predicting potential gains from all this is a mug’s game. But the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington has just estimated that a TPP could generate almost $300 billion more in annual income among the partners. For Canada, that would imply a $10- billion bump-up. Those gains could be far larger, in the $2 trillion range collectively, if the TPP were to be adopted as a template by the 21-nation AsiaPacific Economic Cooperation group that also includes China, Russia, Indonesia and the Philippines. The relatively modest nearterm stakes may explain why Harper’s interest in the Pacific trade talks, which began in 2005, initially was lukewarm. Ottawa got galvanized only when Washington got involved in 2009. The TPP is U.S. President Barack Obama’s way of deepening ties with key Asian partners, in part to offset China’s influence. Canada couldn’t afford to ignore that shift. Still, the Harper government’s reflexive secrecy has left Canadians wondering just what Ottawa is prepared to trade off, to be part of the club. The Prime Minister’s trade coup is a murky one. Parliament has seen nothing like the cost/

benefit analysis that is called for, even at this early stage. Concerns have been raised by the U.S. and others about Canada’s supply management to protect farmers who produce poultry, eggs and dairy products. About investment in telecommunications and cultural industries. About copyright protection and intellectual property rights. And about our attitudes toward foreign investment. While Harper insists that “Canada has not agreed to any specific measures,” hard bargaining lies ahead. The question for Parliament is: Will the expected economic gains for Canada offset any giveaways we may face? And as a latecomer will Canada be under pressure to swallow deals cut by the original partners? Just now it’s hard to know. If Harper hopes to avoid a maelstrom of public concern for Canadian sovereignty, jobs and culture as talks progress, he will have to sell this trade pact, not just negotiate it behind closed doors. A good place to start would be to shed some light on what Ottawa expects to gain, and what it is being asked to barter away.

Gresley-Jones victorious in playoff BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

Rossland golfer Ben Gresley-Jones snatched his third Christina Lake Open title in dramatic fashion last week. Over 200 golfers teed off at the annual father’s day two-day event, which saw the championship come down to a playoff between Christina Lake’s assistant pro Wil Mounsteven and Gresley-Jones. “It would have been a fourhole playoff and if it was still tied after that it would go to retrogression which I knew, based on my score, I would lose,” said Gresley-Jones. After birdieing four of the first six holes, Gresley-Jones struggled down the stretch to finish the day even and at 2-under for the tournament. A clutch putt on the 18th preserved the tie, and after a quick trip to the driving range Gresley-Jones was ready for sudden death. The Rossland resident hit a good drive on the opening playoff hole, and put his second shot on the green. He

Five British Columbia Hockey League players and one alumni were selected in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft this weekend at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. Prince George Spruce Kings forward Jujhar Khaira broke the ice when the Edmonton Oilers grabbed him early in the third round 63rd overall, up from the number 74 spot that NHL Central Scouting pegged him in its final ranking of North American skaters for the 2012 NHL Draft. Playing minor-midget hockey, the Cloverdale native went undrafted by the Western Hockey League. However, a scout from the Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League saw something in him, and over the last two seasons, the relationship has been beneficial to both sides. In his second season with Prince George, Khaira -- a left wing who now measures in at 6-foot-2 and 182 pounds -- finished 10th in the BCHL with 79 points in 54 games. He also had 29 goals, including a team-best 10 on the power play. After being overlooked by the WHL, Jujhar Khaira shifted his sights on the BCHL. Success there turned him into a top prospect for the 2012 NHL Draft. “He was a big part of the success this year for his team,” Central Scouting’s B.J. MacDonald told “He logged tons of minutes and played on all special teams. An underrated playmaker. He handles and distributes the puck very well, [and] he’s responsible at both ends of the rink. Good size and used it effectively in protecting puck and in the corners.” Prince George GM Mike Hawes told NHL. com that Khaira’s style of play reminded him of another Vancouver-area player -- Boston’s Milan Lucic. “Jujhar is the guy that always leads on the forecheck,” Hawes said. “He has the ability to knock defensemen off the puck and create scoring chances. Once he gets the puck, he’s able to control it and fend guys off with his strength and power and get the puck to the net for opportunities.” Powell River Kings goalie Sean Maguire was next to go, in the fourth round 113th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins. Merritt Centennials forward Reece Willcox of Surrey was taken in the fifth round 141st overall by the Philadelphia Flyers. Highly touted, Coquitlam Express forward Alex Kerfoot was also taken in the in the fifth round, 150th overall by the New Jersey Devils. Rounding out the draft for current BCHL players was Wesley Myron a forward from the Victoria Grizzlies who was selected in the sixth round 177th overall. Also selected was Joey Laleggia from the University of Denver. The Burnaby native played two seasons for the Penticton Vees before heading off to college. Edmonton also picked Russian Nail Yakupov as the number one draft pick from the Sarnia Sting of the Ontario Junior Hockey League.

James Canucks go brings with Gaunce tweets back THE CANADIAN PRESS


MIAMI - LeBron James is back on Twitter, and the Miami Heat star has more followers than ever. The newly crowned NBA champion and NBA Finals MVP ended a nearly two-month break from social media early Friday, posting a 50-second video to thank fans for both their support and their patience. James now has just over 5 million followers. He crossed that milestone Friday, a few hours after the Heat beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5 of the finals to win the franchise’s second championship. James - whose Twitter handle is @ kingjames - said he stopped tweeting during the playoffs in an effort to avoid distractions as he chased his first championship. “I’m at a loss for words right now,” James said in the video. “I want to shout-out my fans. I know I haven’t been with you all the last couple months. Think April 27 was the last time I sent out a tweet. But I want you all to know that I just wanted to try to get as focused as possible on this championship run.” He paused there for a moment, pointing to his hat printed with the words “2012 NBA Champions” and the Heat logo. “And as you can see, I am a champion,” James continued. “But without you guys, it wouldn’t have been possible. “You guys stuck with me throughout the whole playoffs. You guys stuck with me through the last couple years. And thank you guys so much. “You guys share this championship with me and this MVP trophy with me, this MVP finals trophy with me. Love you guys, and I am back.”



PITTSBURGH - The Vancouver Canucks proudly draped a No. 12 across Brendan Gaunce’s broad shoulders after taking him 26th overall in the NHL draft on Friday night. It’s the 2012 draft, after all. Then, almost as quickly, they told the teenager there was no chance he would ever wear that number in their organization. Former Canucks forward Stan Smyl, who has been involved with the club in some capacity for 3 1-2 decades, had his No. 12 retired in 1991, and there are no plans to take it down from the rafters. “I was grateful to have that,” Gaunce said of the short time he had with the special number. “He obviously means a lot to the city of Vancouver and the

team, and that’s special for myself. “I didn’t expect anything on the back of the jersey, so I was happy with that.” The Canucks clearly believe Gaunce, who starred for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League, will make a name for himself - no matter what number he ends up wearing. They won’t need another top-line centre for a while - not as long as Henrik Sedin stays healthy and productive - but it is easy to foresee the six-foot-two, 215pound Gaunce filling that role someday. Gaunce was rated No. 13 among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting after accumulating 28 goals and 40 assists in 68 games last season. He also had 68 penalty minutes.

Stay close with daughter-in-law for good of grandson Dear Annie: My daughter-in-law is bipolar and refuses to take anything for it. Now her illness is affecting my relationship with my 9-year-old grandson. My husband and I practically raised my grandson until he was 4. Neither parent wanted much to do with him. We clothed and fed him without a stitch of help. A few years ago, however, the two of them finally noticed how close we were to the boy, and they began bribing him to stay at home by buying him everything under the sun. He still spent weekends with us, but his mother would grill him afterward to find out what we had talked about. A few weeks ago, she and I talked, and I thought we had a good discussion. We reassured her that all we wanted to know was how our grandson was doing in school. But we discovered that my daughter-in-law was

pressuring him to say something negative about us, and eventually, he started telling her all kinds of things that weren’t remotely true. Now they refuse to let him visit at all, saying he doesn’t wish to come. What’s worse is that my daughter-in-law put our entire estrangement on Facebook and called me a few nasty names to boot. When my daughterin-law spent a week in the hospital, I had to hear it from a friend who watched our grandson for her. I was livid. When my grandson’s school called to ask me to help the kids make bouquets for their mothers, I refused. That

made her angry, but frankly, had I agreed to the bouquet, I know my daughter-in-law would have found some reason to hate it. I still would like to be a part of my grandson’s life, but it isn’t allowed. What bothers me most is that my own son won’t stand up for us. Do we just hope they come to their senses some day? -- At a Loss Dear Loss: These estrangements are heartbreaking, not only because the grandparents lose out, but the grandchildren are deprived of a loving relationship. Some states recognize grandparents rights, but not all, which is why we recommend trying to get back in your daughter-in-law’s good graces, whether or not she deserves it. She controls the relationship. The alternative is to lose contact entirely. Dear Annie: I love my job and the people I work with. However, my immediate supervisor and I have very dif-

ferent social and political views. He seems intent on getting me to come around to his way of thinking. These kinds of discussions make me uncomfortable. I don’t want to tell him what I’m really thinking. And more often than not, I’m completely caught off guard and blindsided by his statements. How do I respond without putting my job in jeopardy or making him angry? -- No Political Talk Dear No: It’s perfectly OK to tell someone that you are uncomfortable discussing politics at work. If that doesn’t help, your safest bet is to politely ignore him, nodding and busying yourself with work. Or plaster a big smile on your face and reply, “We’ll just have to agree to disagree.” Repeat as needed. Of course, if he harangues you, you should mention it to human resources. Dear Annie: “Cash Strapped for College” doesn’t want savings

bonds as gifts because he assumes they are of little immediate value to a student who needs the money for books, etc. My husband and I knew that we might not live to see our last grandchild graduate

from college. We took the same amount of money that we had given the other grandchildren and bought two U.S. savings bonds with it. Well, my husband did not live to see our granddaughter gradu-

ate, but her gift was still from both of us, and no one else could use the money. If we had put cash away, she might not have received it, and at the time, it would have been only from me. -- Grandma of a College Graduate

Dawn Glover

would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to the friends, family, neighbours, and community members who offered an overwhelming show of love and support ad we’ve dealt with the loss of Dave, our beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend. We are deeply humbled and truly moved that so many took the time to share their words of condolence and remembrance with us. With each card, message, bouquet, gift, donation and embrace, you helped us honour the memory of our dear David. We would also like to express our deepest appreciation for all those who attended Dave’s memorial service on June 15th at Trail United Church. Sincere thanks is due to Rev. Keith Simmonds and funeral director Bill Clark for creating such a professional and beautifully personal service. Thank you to all the medical staff who cared for Dave in his last days, particularly Dr. Phillips. Again, thank you, we have never felt so lucky to be a member of this ďŹ ne community.
