The federal review panel for the New Prosperity mine project will conduct a site visit of the project area this month. A letter to registered parties from panel chair Bill Ross says the visit will include the mine site location, transmission line corridor, access road and the load-out facility near Macalister. The panel will not meet with Taseko Mines Ltd. or any registered parties during the visit due to fairness concerns. A summary of the tour will be posted on the public registry. The panel is inviting registered parties to suggest areas or features that the panel should see during the tour. Suggestions should include a map, if possible. Suggestions should be submitted by July 6. All correspondence received will be considered part of the public record. Questions or comments about the visit or other matters related to the project can be sent to Livain Michaud, panel manager, at or via fax at 613-957-0941.

Petroglyph ownership in dispute

COMMUNITY B1 French Immersion settles in. Weather outlook: Sunny with showers today and tomorrow and the next day.

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A recently repatriated petroglyph rock is at the centre of a controversy in the Cariboo Chilcotin. After two years of working with the Museum of Vancouver, the Stswecem’c/Xgat’tem (formerly known as the Canoe Creek Nation) celebrated the rock’s return to the Churn Creek Protected Area on June 13. The rock had been removed from the Crowsbar area on the Fraser River in 1926, first residing in Stanley Park and then at the Museum of Vancouver. On the morning of the repatriation celebration, Tlet’inqox chief Joe Alphonse contacted the Tribune, saying the markings on the rock were Tsilhqot’in. While he applauded the petroglyph’s return, he said his nation would be holding its own ceremony in the near future. Alphonse also complained there was no consultation with his na-

tion by either the Stswecem’c/ Xgat’tem or the Museum of Vancouver over the petroglyph rock’s repatriation. Two weeks later, the Stswecem’c/ Xgat’tem issued a press lease voicing its disappointment. In the release, Stswecem’c/ Xgat’tem chief Hank Adam said it was unfortunate that the Tsilhqot’in National Government (TNG) has challenged the repatriation. “My late grandfather and father lived in Stswecem’c and Stswepe’7eca (Crowsbar) all their lives and there are no accounts of Tsilhqot’in speaking people living in or near the area,” Adam said, adding the Tsilhqot’in never lived in the round pit-homes, which were the traditional winter homes of the Secwepemc people. The Northern Secwepemc te Qelmucw (NStQ) have been trying for more than four years to negotiate a resolution of the boundary with the TNG, Adam said. “The TNG have suggested that

consultation by Stswecem’c/Xgat/ tem should have taken place prior to the rock coming home. TNG felt this was necessary because the petroglyph went through TNG territory. This has been strongly disputed by the Secwepemc, and the Tsilhqot’in continue to refuse to work on an agreement with the NStQ boundary,” the press release stated, adding the TNG refuse to engage in constructive resolution issues between the two nations and are making public statements and asserting territory far beyond their traditional territory. “It appears that the Tsilhqot’in want to attempt to establish a claim to Secwepemc Territory through the media. “This is unfortunate and we certainly hope that they will reconsider the benefit of entering into a constructive relationship.” Alphonse took exception to the statements in the press release and told the Tribune Thursday he was astounded. “I think it’s absolutely disre-

spectful and I’m taken aback,” Alphonse said. “They’re the ones that went through the media announcing the repatriation of the petroglyph rock without notifying us. It’s not just us that they did that too. The Lilooett Nation contacted us and want to have a joint ceremony with us so we’re in contact regarding that.” Regarding the overlap of boundaries, and the discussions between the two parties, Alphonse alleged NStQ has not moved an inch in the four years of meetings. “There’s give and take on both sides. When dealing with those issues, those issues we insist should include community members and elders. What we’re talking about and are most interested in is healing, because in dealing with that, you have to deal with the intertribal warfare that happened and occurred. You have to bury the hatchet,” Alphonse said. See WE Page A3

William, Alphonse react to B.C. Court of Appeal decision Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Roger William’s reaction to the B.C. Court of Appeal decision on the William Case last week is mixed. “I think in a sense we feel that we have title and are certainly disappointed, but at the same time the appeal did uphold our rights, which is very strong. In that sense I’m very happy,” said William, one of the three plaintiffs. The other two who appealed the case are the provincial and federal governments. Regarding title, William said the judge ruled that he didn’t feel that an overall territorial title was warranted in the case. “We won’t be going to the Supreme Court of Canada pushing for site specific rights,” William said. “The Tsilhqot’in understanding of title is title for the whole area. There’s no place in the country or the world that has title to specific areas. You can look up any country and see that they don’t have title that is site specific; they have title to a whole area and they have a boundary.” William said First Nations have tried treaties, but they have been broken, and court cases seem to be the

only option. “Certainly it is status quo in terms of the Judge Vicker’s decision where we feel and understand that our declaration of rights to hunt, to trade, to trap and use wild horses means that Canada and B.C. have to prove to us that they will not infringe on those aboriginal rights to those areas.” William said as he listened to the ruling he was thinking about the elders and children in his community. Some of the members from his community who testified are no longer alive. His mood changed from being disappointed to feeling things could have been worse. “What about trade. What about horses? That still remains. The ruling hands down lots of protection and issues that we can work on,” he said. Tlet’inqox (Anaham) Chief Joe Alphonse said the William case and subsequent appeal have been a long fight for the Tsilhqot’in Nation. “Since 1992, we’ve been struggling with this issue, but the verdict in the court of appeal today upheld our rights and access to resources on our traditional lands,” Alphonse

said Wednesday. One area he says is weak is the ruling around recognized title. “We’re describing it as a postage stamp approach. As Tsilhqot’in we recognize having ownership to the whole territory, not bits and pieces. It opens the door to take that specific issue and challenge to the Supreme Court of Canada.” By right, Alphonse

says he thinks an issue that large should go to the Supreme Court of Canada. It’s an issue that all First Nations across Canada are struggling and fighting with. And if it’s overruled there, the implications will be felt all across the country, not just in B.C. Alphonse says, adding there’s still work to do to push the issue. “We’ll continue to

Groups receive tourism funds Four local groups are eligible to receive funding for projects to help grow tourism, announced the B.C. government Wednesday. The funding comes from the province’s Community Tourism Opportunities program administered by the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association.
Local communities receiving CTO funding include: • Cariboo Regional District - $12,00 for accessible trail kiosks; $4,000 for visitor information; and $7,000 for art route • South Cariboo $15,000 for visitors guide; $1,500 for a slideshow; and $5,000 for a website. • West Chilcotin $3,100 for collateral and distribution; $2,500 for web and social media; and $3,600 for consumer shows. • Williams Lake $5,000 for an online marketing campaign; $2,500 for a billboard; and $1,000 for travel writing. The government says tourism is one of the key economic sectors identified in Canada Starts Here: The BC Jobs Plan. A3

“Our world-famous Stampede is just the tip of the iceberg here in the Cariboo-Chilcotin,” says Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. “There’s so much to do and see I really hope this helps bring ‘round some new faces.” The CTO program is administered by the province’s six regional destination marketing organizations, which receive the funding from the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. Successful applicants must have matching funds for their projects and they receive their funding after successful completion of their projects. This is the fifth year the CTO program has been in operation. Both marketing and development projects are eligible under the program which reimburses communities following successful completion of their approved projects. Some examples of initiatives supported include print and broadcast advertising, event promotion, interpretative maps, tourist-related signage, online activities, tourism brochures and research.

unity riders gather for last push to stampede

Members of the Chilcotin Valley Riders Unity Ride waited at the Welcome to Williams Lake sign on Hwy. 20 before riding into the city Thursday afternoon. There were around 35 riders on horseback and 25 cyclists, as well as several support vehicles for the annual five-day journey to the Williams Lake Stampede.

‘We did due diligence,’ museum says Continued From Page A1 “If we can’t do that then there’s no use coming to an agreement on a boundary because at the end of the day our biggest interest is healing for all First Nations in and around Williams Lake,” Alphonse said and added he’s willing to go into any of the communities and talk about

this issue with community members. When asked why he hadn’t raised concerns about the repatriation in advance of the repatriation celebration, Alphonse said the TNG would have entrusted the Stswecem’c/Xgat’tem to take the lead. “For whatever reason that fell through the tracks. Some of that we will have to look at

ourselves and ask what happened on our end. We have referral workers at the national office that didn’t deem this as a priority, but those things are very important,” Alphonse said. Museum of Vancouver director of collections and exhibitions Joan Seidl was unavailable for comment by press time. However, on the museum’s website a posting

by Seidl about the repatriation referred to the overlapping outstanding land claims between the two groups. “At the MOV we did due diligence to find the appropriate nation to whom to repatriate the rock,” the post says. “We researched the records thoroughly and consulted an expert in petroglyphs who knew the general area well.

We approached the Stswecem’c Xgat’tem in good faith. It is the MOV’s hope that the return of the rock will be an occasion for unity and empowerment among all the First Nations of the region. The decision to place the rock at Churn Creek may aid in this, as it’s a traditional gathering place and point of trade for many interior First Nations.”

CRD to present to timber supply committee Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The Cariboo Regional District will make its presentation to the legislative special committee on mid-timber supply in 100 Mile House July 5. Chair Al Richmond said while the final presentation was being pulled together the day after the board held a special meeting in Williams Lake on June 27, he could share the highlights. “We went through a pretty in-depth analysis of what we have. We feel that the chief forester should report directly to the legislature so that he’s independent. We want to see some of the decisions based on science and the long-term interests of the forest,” Richmond said. Additionally, the CRD recognizes there will be a reduction in the Annual Allowable Cut (AAC). The hope is that it can be a phased reduction to allow communities to transition into that cut reduction. “One of the other things we’re making a very strong point on is that we need to have complete utilization of the fiber we have.” He said huge slash piles are being burned in winter. “We believe there’s opportunities for better utilization of fiber by other people. Just because one person logs it, it doesn’t mean there isn’t another use for that fiber.” Some of it could be

pellets, or maybe a small operator can use it for a value-added product. “Right now we’re looking at three large piles of logging debris that are sitting within eight kilometres of an OSB plant in 100 Mile. It’s obviously not economical for the people logging, even though they’ve handled it, to haul it. “The costs are so high that it’s more cost-effective for the owner to

burn it rather than find other ways of utilizing it.” Efforts have to be made to make it more cost-effective so the fiber doesn’t go to waste, he added. “Some forest licensees have suggested that perhaps up to 30 per cent of what they touch is staying in the bush in some cases.” Richmond, along with Area C director John Massier, who also owns a woodlot license, will

appear before the panel at 10:15 a.m. The hearings take place in Williams Lake

at the Pioneer Complex from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. July 5 as well. Transcripts of the

DND preserves Meldrum Creek training area Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The 40,000 hectares owned by the Department of National Defence in the Chilcotin continues to be used as a training area, while measures are being taken to protect and preserve the area’s grasslands. At an open house in Williams Lake on June 19 at the Coast Fraser Inn, the public had the opportunity to meet biologists, natural resource technicians, and two members of the military to hear firsthand how those two efforts coexist. National Defence acquired the land in May of 1924, after negotiations began to exchange a parcel of land it owned in Vancouver’s Point Grey area, presently UBC Endowment Lands. “The process began in 1912 with an Order in Council authorizing the exchange of Federal Crown Land with the Provincial Crown Land, and was completed on May 10, 1924,” said Mike Harrison, property officer, Area Support Unit Chilliwack. Over the years DND has used the site for winter and summer training, and the officer training program ran courses from the mid-1970s to 1990s. In addition, Search and Rescue from Vancouver Island and troops from Edmonton, Chilliwack, Kelowna and Vancouver area all use the site for training, Harrison added. Warrant Officer Martin Brink, 1 Combat Engineer Regiment Edmonton, said his unit hasn’t trained in the area since 1996, but will be returning in late September with 500 to 600 people for a three- to four-week training exercise. Some will arrive by army vehicles, others by buses - part of the training “We haven’t been in a green environment for a long time. There’s not much green in Afghanistan,” he said. His regiment has invited some infantry personnel to join in, as well as service battalions. “Every year we have to train together and meet certain expectations around working together,” Brink explained.

Truck drivers will help move bridging and equipment to certain areas and need to be included in the plans. Infantry also has to be included, because it serves as protection when the engineers are building a bridge. “They are going to be doing patrols, number one making sure there’s no cows coming in the area while we’re building, or two, if it’s a real enemy. If we see cows, we’d call them in as refugees,” Brink said. Before they can actually blow up a bridge while training, there are standing orders to conduct a four-kilometre search of the area around the blow area. Brink said they’ve carried out several base cleanups over the years as well. Rules have changed and it’s expected. “We’re going to be blowing things up like engineers do and because we know civilians go into the training area and cows go in there, if we blow a hole in the road, we have to fill it in. We don’t have a choice.” Natural resource technical officer Angela Manweiller has worked for DND since 2005 and is based in Chilliwack. “I work with species at risk and invasive species, working with other organizations to maintain the training area in a natural state. One of our big goals is sustainable terrain so the area is always good for training and for others,” she said. Manweiller is a civilian — there is no environment trade in the army, she said. “Our section is all civilians. If you look at

the army environment program there are a lot of things we deal with. Noise, anything that can be considered the environment, air, dust, and fires.” In fact, the 2010 Meldrum Creek Fire burned a quarter of the training area, she said. “Now they’re actually doing salvage logging in there. Trees on the training area are managed by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada. Anything that comes out of there is for the benefit of the First Nations. Whatever profit is made goes back into managing the forest.” Manweiller described the training area as a huge migratory bird pathway. “Environment Canada is doing research in the area on Burrow’s Goldeneye and installing transmitters on ducks they’re tracking in the training area,” she said. Water quality testing is done annually, to measure the effects of global warming and track what’s in the water to determine what water bodies are safe to drink from. “There are a lot of metals in the soils in this area and there are quite a few water bodies that are not suitable for livestock to drink from,” she said, pointing to an area on a map that’s big for cattle use where some of the water has been contaminated by fecal coliform. The water quality fluctuates with the seasons, and anytime NDN does testing, the information goes out to local ranchers. “I believe seven different ranchers have rights to our training area. Part of the Becher Prairie is in the training area too,

“ Manweiller said. Another display showed that over a 30year period a third of

the grassland was lost to encroaching forest cover, some of that due to fire suppression. Since 2007, Area Support Unit Chilliwack has partnered with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada to support ecosystem restoration. “To keep it open we’ve been cutting down the smaller trees that are moving into the grasslands. We were considering prescribed burning, and we’re going to have one this spring, but it didn’t happen because of the weather,” Manweiller said. They have also hired local First Nations to cut trees under 20 centimetres that are growing in

the grasslands and have restored 1963 hectares of grasslands and removed 2.9 million small trees. University of Saskatchewan biology professor Karen Wiebe has been returning to the area every summer for the last 15 years to study the Northern Flicker. “We have a tent camp in the bush, behind the old firefighting camp. We’re biologists studying flickers out on the military land, but we aren’t connected with the military.” Over the last 15 years, Wiebe and graduate students have been involved in a long-term project, catching and colour banding about 150 pairs. They track reproduc-

tion all summer to see which Flickers return each year. “We put radio transmitters on the juveniles to measure survival rates and where they move on the landscape. One student is looking at how the level of food provisioning affects nestling growth, colouration and corticosterone levels, which is a stress hormone.” Flickers are migratory and fly south to California, migrating back in the spring. A 2009 natural resource inventory of Drummond, Lye, Greer, Roundup and Jackson Lakes, determined the most common species in the area are Lesser Scaup, Barrow’s Goldeneye and Bufflehead.

Tax me, but spend wisely

Stampede is a wrap


ome of us older ladies were talking about attitudes to elders (white hair helps) the other day and the matter of opening doors came up. All of us noted the people who go out of their way to open doors for us are young First Nations men. We do appreciate it. *** I paid my city taxes a few days ago to avoid a n y French lineups. Connection I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t m i n d Diana French paying taxes. No one has yet come up with a better way for governments to provide the services we need. What I mind is where the money goes. I did and still do object to the HST, not so much at the tax itself but the way it came about and at the way it remains. Premier Christy Clark knows a good cash cow when she sees one, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in no hurry to let it go. Too many politicians, once they are government, get their snouts in the trough and think the tax money belongs to them. People are probably OK paying for hospitals, education, pensions, and, hopefully, other social issues, but it really puts me off when politicians piddle my money away. How many of us truly want our money to go to Defense Minister Peter MacKayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s war toys? Politicians at all levels like travelling at our expense, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too often hear if the benefits to taxpayers justify the costs. Do we take joy in funding International Cooperation Minister Bev Odaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lavish spending habits? Just what does she do to co-operate internationally anyway? Are we happy giving seuro executives generous bonuses (i.e. Community Living BC) for messing up? What I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand is how governments, especially â&#x20AC;&#x153;right wingâ&#x20AC;? governments who are supposed to be the best economic managers get us into debt.

Our Viewpoint

Children lose in labour fight As in any non-decisive battle between implacable foes, both sides are claiming victory after a Labour Relations Board decision last week. LRB vice-chairwoman Ritu Mahil ruled the B.C. Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t authorize an illegal strike by directing members to refrain from â&#x20AC;&#x153;activities which occur outside of class time/instructional hours and are truly voluntary and extra-curricular.â&#x20AC;? The decision means teachers have the right to withdraw their participation in voluntary extra-curricular activities. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win for teachers, says BCTF president Susan Lambert, because it clarifies the distinction between voluntary and non-voluntary extracurricular activities. Summoning the wisdom of Solomon in the middle of an especially tense B.C. labour relations showdown, Mahil also ruled that teachers have to participate in

after-hours things that are part of their work duties. This includes parent-teacher interviews, district committee meetings, school-based team meetings and Ministry of Education initiatives. So, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a victory for the B.C. government and the B.C. Public School Employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association, which filed an LRB complaint claiming the union struck illegally. Of course, if both sides partially won, they also partially lost, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not dwell on the optics of the public relations spin cycle. There are more important issues at stake. One of which is what to do with a new school year that is only three months away. The LRB ruling helps, but to avoid the uncertainty and disruption that plagued this school year, both sides must remember whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for students. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Comox Valley Record

Well we just wrapped up the 86th Annual Williams Lake Stampede and what an event it was! I t â&#x20AC;&#x2122; s always so great MLA to see Musings so many p e o p l e Donna Barnett from the community come out for such a great time. The 63rd Annual Bridge Lake Stampede was also held this weekend and while I was unable to attend I know that it is always a great family favourite in the South Cariboo. Rodeo season isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over just yet. Out west we have the upcoming Anahim Lake Stampede July 7 & 8 and in the south we have the Interlakes Rodeo Aug 4 & 5. Rodeo riders from all across the region come to compete and show off their skills at these wonderful community events. Be sure to check them out! I also want to take this opportunity to talk about some really amazing youth who are participating in an event called Kids Running for Kids. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a group of 70 Williams Lake kids who want to make a difference and help raise funds for the BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital by running all the way from Williams Lake to Vancouver. Each of them have been affected by conditions that require the special care of the BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital, or know someone who has. These valiant young sprites arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t running from their problems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running for a cause! They departed on June 30 and will arrive at the hospital on July 7. The kids range in age from 6 to 18 years and will tackle about five kilometers per day. The really amazing thing about this group is that they started with a fundraising goal of $25,000, but have already raised $52,000! With so much momentum and success already, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now aiming for a grand total of $100,000!

More Viewpoints Lakecity has Bullying hurts people in many ways great theatre â&#x20AC;&#x201D; use it


Editor: I was recently in Williams Lake to visit family and friends (my husband was born and raised in Williams Lake) and on a rainy Saturday we decided to take in a matinee at Paradise Cinemas. Coming from the Lower Mainland, where almost all local and independent theatres have been shut down, we were heartened by the ability to see a current release (Rock of Ages) at a reasonable price ($7) in a comfortable sized theatre.  We were concerned, however, at how few people were there with us. There were six people viewing the show and only a smattering of people in line to see the other offerings.  I really hope the people of Williams Lake patronize this theatre or you will lose it as we in the Lower Mainland have and, as the saying goes, you really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what you are missing until it is gone.   Jennifer Thuncher Burnaby

Bullying comes in lots of different ways, like cyber and verbal. Bullying can hurt others in all kinds of ways, makes them stress and lose focus and makes others upset. Bullying hurts people in many ways. It makes the people scared

and lose focus on schooling and work. Bullying affects friends and families because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scared that something bigger might start. Then they will stress because their friend or family member is getting bullied. Being a bully can turn into something bigger or can be stopped. Being a bully is not a

good thing because you scare others and give yourself a bad reputation. Bullying is never good because you can hurt others. When bullying is happening, you should stand up for the person getting bullied and go tell an adult before it gets bigger. Name withheld by request

Council changes cheque policy Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Cheques issued by the city up to $2,000 in value will now have electronic signatures. At its committee of the whole meeting June 26, council debated a recommendation that cheques of $500 or less in value be signed electronically, but after the discussion went with the greater amount. Coun. Geoff Bourdon presently signs cheques on behalf of council. “We had gone with $500 but when I go through and look at the cheques, most of them have gone through the check point, and the formality is to sign them,” he said. Director of finance Pat Higgins looked at other municipalities and noted that $500 is quite low. “Staff has some authority to sign purchase orders for that low. It was discussed at the general governance committee that 50 per cent of the cheques were below $500, so

we thought it would be more efficient to use electronic signatures. I think $2,000 is reasonable,” Higgins said. At its June 5 regular meeting council approved having the monthly cheque register made public. Bourdon said he’s comfortable with the electronic signatures because of the cheque registry. “Everyone can look at that,” he said of the registry. He also said the advantage is if something comes up quickly that has to be paid for then city staff don’t have to find him to sign a cheque. While council passed the motion to use electronic signatures, councillors Surinderpal Rathor and Danica Hughes, along with Mayor Kerry Cook, were opposed. Cook said she would have supported the $500 amount. Rathor said he has questions over checks and balances, especially around expense reports.

“As it is right now you have three sets of eyes looking at the cheques. Two eyes when the manager authorizes the expense, second set when staff signs the cheque, and third set when council members sign the cheque. When a mistake is made, it could be made anytime so that’s my reason for being opposed.” After further discussion, council passed a motion to review its checks and balances procedure. “Council needs to be aware in black and white what the procedure is,” Cook said.

Lakecity â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Muddersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hit Whistler Steve Dickens Special to The Tribune Despite the early weather forecasts for rain in Whistler, BC, competitors saw lots of sun. And despite the fine weather, course runners saw lots of mud. Tough Mudderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 inaugural voyage onto Canadian soil was a resounding success. The 4 a.m. wakeup call Saturday, June 23 jolted us into the harsh reality. Today, our team, â&#x20AC;&#x153;True Grit,â&#x20AC;? would be tested. Even with the availability of YouTube to scan previous Tough Mudder courses, the challenge of facing 11 miles and 22 obstacles was still a mystery. Had all the training and doing our â&#x20AC;&#x153;Minnie Mudderâ&#x20AC;? in Williams Lake a month ago been enough preparation? Developed by the Ex British Forces and used as a fundraiser for the Wounded Warriors Project, the Whistler course turned out to be a

challenge that did not disappoint the 16,500 competitors. Beginning at 8 a.m. and every 20 minutes later until 2 p.m., a new batch of 500 athletes would be set loose on the course. The atmosphere at the starting line was continually charged with a mixture of adrenaline and energy as Tough Mudder staffing laid out course etiquette and cautions (such as no electrical course obstacles for people with pace makers, etc). Some athletes were there as individuals but the entry line was covered throughout the day with teams wearing colorful jerseys and elaborate costumes coming from various communities around B.C. and even Washington State. Not long into the course that rainbow of beautiful colours was soon changed to the ubiquitous brown of B.C. mud. At the opening bell, competitors raced up a ski run about one kilometre, only to run back down to their first obstacle which was a mud-

New bike billboard looks to capture attention A 10 foot by 20 foot billboard has been strategically placed en route to Whistler in an effort to promote Williams Lake, and area, as a premiere mountain biking destination. The billboard, which will remain in place for the majority of the summer, is the result of a partnership between the City of Williams Lake, the Cariboo Regional District (CRD), the Cariboo Mountain Biking

Consortium (CMBC) and the Northern Development Initiative Trust. The billboard directs viewers to the www. website. The website showcases the unique trails and mountain biking culture that the Cariboo has to offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sea to Sky are has long held the majority of the mountain bike market in British Columbia, and for good reason â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they have great rid-

ing to offer,â&#x20AC;? said Justin Calof, executive director of the Cariboo Mountain Biking Consortium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But times are changing and the Cariboo offers something unique that mountain bikers are increasingly seeking. Uncrowded trails, fast, tight and floy single track and a relaxing mountain bike culture to chill with is what we invite people to experience.â&#x20AC;? The promotion of Williams Lake as a moun-

tain bike destination is identified in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Business Expansion and Attraction Strategy (BEAS). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were really fortunate to secure that particular location for the billboard as the majority of mountain bikers in B.C. travel that length of highway each summer on their way to Whistler,â&#x20AC;? said mayor Kerry Cook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ideally, we will tap into that market and steer people from the Lower

Rankin runs for ALS Williams Lake resident and runner Leo Rankin ran a 109-lap marathon around the Williams Lake Secondary School track Saturday, June 23 to help raise money for ALS. He finished in four hours and 50 minutes — just in time to join members of the community for the first Walk for ALS Saturday in Boitanio Park. Rankin was running as part of Team Rankin in remembrance of his brother, Ron Rankin, who passed away from the disease three years ago. “The track marathon is just a means to an end,” Rankin said. “The really great thing is that we raised A11

Mudders cross finish line as team riors closer to their ultimate goal of completing the challenge. And yet, the true meaning of mud was yet to be discovered. Many of the next obstacles involved wading through knee-deep muck and swampy slime. Invisible rocks and branches tripped some weary athletes, precipitating face plants and mud baths. Good sportsmanship and high levels of camaraderie were often observed as fellow competitors, even total strangers, were quickly on the spot to lift others out of the mud and mire. By the end of the course, it was not uncommon to see these dirtied, limping athletes make their way to the finish line. The whole event was built to challenge, and by and large this was accomplished. “Although the course was made one mile longer than expected, I was preparing myself for

Leo Rankin ran a marathon June 23 to help fundraise for ALS. $1,545 for the Walk for ALS, which was the objective.” He said Lynn Ann Cheverie and Leah Johnson helped him raise around $500 more through ice cream sales and collecting spare change. “We’ve been impacted by ALS and it is important to work

toward finding a cure for this lethal disease,” he said. “The support from the community was wonderful — particularly from the people working in the Government Resource Building in forestry, environment, agriculture and other government sections.”

By 8:15 a.m. our team found this a shocking way to begin our day. The course then took competitors away from the crowds at the Whistler Olympic Park roughly eight miles through a well marked course comprised mainly of cross country ski trails. Here, rocky scrabble waited to twist ankles and knees. Snow patches and mud puddles dotted the trail, keeping all feet soaking wet and filthy. Many hill climbs raised body temperatures and increased sweat levels. In order to remedy this, course organizers directed the trail to a 15-metre snow slide down a 45 degree gradient emptying into a small lake surrounded by snow and ice. On and on the course progressed with every step taking the mud war-

some obstacles that were not here,” said True Grit member, Brooke Greig. Her brother, and fellow “True Grit” teammate, Jay Greig, echoed that toughness and courage. “I heard once that pain is only weakness leaving the body,” Jay said. “When the course got tough, I kept this thought in mind.” Bobbie Dickens, another team member, said “It was really special for me to be able to do this event with my brother and sister, both of whom impressed me in many ways. My brother was the anchor for our team, using his animal-like strength to pull or push all of us over and up the various obstacles. I loved that our team stuck together through the whole event and that we were able to cross the finish line holding hands as we ran through the ‘electric shock therapy’”. The Concrete Fitness

team took a similar approach to Tough Mudder and determined to stay together as a team. “We finish together or we don’t finish at all,” Tyler Hamm said. Teammate Cher Sytsma was impressed with her team, led by Stefan Hoelzler and Brian Doering who helped them through the course. “It was definitely as tough as I expected,” Sytsma said. When the “True Grit” team crossed the finish line just prior to noon, our squad was far off the course record (of one hour and 40 minutes), but we were all smiles. “We came to do this course as a team, and we accomplished that goal,” said Kevin Ernst. “Now I can cross that item off my bucket list. “Indeed, events like the Tough Mudder reinforce the concept that life is all about the journey, not the destination.”

French Immersion settles in at Glendale Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer It may not have been the easiest transition but students in the elementary school French Immersion program are now well settled into their new home at Glendale Elementary School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think things went well,â&#x20AC;? says Kari Urquhart, president Canadian Parents for French Williams Lake Chapter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is always the transition period where everyone is adjusting. Our French books are slowly making it out on the shelves, the French signs from Marie Sharpe have been moved over. I guess all in all the year has been pretty good.â&#x20AC;? The French language books didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start arriving from Marie Sharpe until after Christmas. Earlier this year some students said they were fine and even more than fine with the move while others said they miss their friends and teachers at Marie Sharpe Elementary School. The elementary French Immersion program was moved from Marie Sharpe to Glendale last September in a cost cutting measure by the School District 27 board. By moving French Immersion to Glendale elementary the district was able to move the Skyline and GROW programs from rental accommodation into the annex on the Marie Sharpe site, thereby saving $87,000 per year in lease fees. Special events planned for the annual Francophone and French Immersion Week March 4 to 10 had to be cancelled this year due to the teacher job action but eventually the students did make their way to city hall for a tour and to sing Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Canada in French. Theatre La Seizieme from Quebec also visited the school in May. The French Immersion program runs on the regular school year calendar, September to June, while the English speaking program at Glendale runs on a modified year-round schedule with a longer break in the spring and a shorter summer break. Principal Matt Cullum says the French Immersion program has about the same number of children as it had at Marie Sharpe. Because of the small number of students attending the school most English and French language classes are split grade classes. In French immersion this year he says there were 20 students in the Kindergarten/Grade 1 class taught by Jocelyne MacDonnell; 20 students in the Grade 1/2 class taught by Julianne Wellinger; 20 students in the Grade 3/4/5 class taught by Nicole Ratko; and 24 students in the Grade 5/6/7 class taught by

Mme. Nicole Ratko goes over some reading material with Grade 3 student Shay-Lee Thompson.

Austin Boehm Grade 5, (left) and Ashlyn Ross, Grade 6, in the library with Mme. Sonja Kurkiniemi.

Sonja Kurkiniemi. Sonja is one of several teachers in the Williams Lake area who have followed their parents into the field of education. Her mother is WLSS teacher Susan Kurkiniemi. And ironically Sonja took her Grade 9/10 science and French classes with Nicole, who is originally from Ontario, and whose first language is French. After graduation Sonja continued her studies in French at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. On the English side there are three split classes: a Kindergarten/ Grade 1/2 class; a Grade 3/4/5 class and a Grade 5/6/7 class. Cullum notes the school has 9.5 full time equivalent teachers (including prep time). Given the number of split grades the school is also provided with 65 hours a week of teaching assistant time. He says students have friends in both the English and French immersion streams and he believes parents are happy with the change. He says they encourage friendships between French Immersion and English stream students by having mixed student activities and sporting events such as volleyball, and basketball, and lunch time activities such as crazy carpet sledding. For awhile, when the weather was cold enough, he says the school had a skating rink. He says the French Immersion group has also been hosting movie nights for all students to raise funds for a trip to Quebec for the Grade 6/7s in May 2013 which will cost approximately $2,000 per student participating. Sonja Kurkiniemi says the French immersion students do all their studies in French and are required to speak french during all classes, but they can speak English outside of class at lunch and recess. One class is even raising sockeye salmon in a tank in French which will be released in the spring. In Grade 4 the French Immersion students also start taking English lessons for about 95 minutes a week. For their social science projects some of the Grade 7s are researching and writing about French speaking countries such as Senegal, Luxembourg, Belgium and of course Quebec in Canada. They have found 29 French speaking countries to write about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes a word or two comes out in English,â&#x20AC;? Sonja says. School District 27 trustee Sheila Boehm, who has two children in the French Immersion program, says she is happy to report that there is a waiting list for the Kindergarten French Immersion program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited,â&#x20AC;? Boehm says of the future of the program.

STORK REPORT Catherine Belleau dedicated to children DICKSON - Kai wants to let everyone see a picture of his new baby sister, Shae Leta Dickson. She was born on May 2, 2012, weighing 5 lbs. 15 oz. Kai introduced Shae to his grandparents, Dickson and Fletcher. Kai’s parents, Megan and Lann allow Kai to snuggle Shae, as long as he is very gentle. Kai and Shae are

JONES - We are thrilled to announce the safe arrival of our precious grandson, Lucas Arthur Jones,

happy to be brother and sister. Welcome to the family, Shae!

born at Royal Inland Hospital, Kamloops, B.C., May 8, 2012, weighing 9 lbs. 2..6 oz. Congratulations to proud parents, Tyler and Sarah Jones, and big sister, Nathalie. Ecstatic grandparents are Donna and Moe Monita and Cheryl and Fred Bott.  

“If children are our future, then we are in good hands with Catherine Belleau’s dedication,” says Esk’etemc Chief Fred Robbins. A First Nations elder, Belleau has enriched the lives of three generations of her First Nations community. It was 35 years ago that Cathy began her work with the daycare centre, serving the community’s infants, toddlers and youth with gentle loving care. She has been instrumental in keeping the daycare centre open in some of the most challenging times. She has mentored the child care workers who have followed in her footsteps. Belleau has supported her work with educational upgrades such as receiving her Infant and Toddler Certificate at the age of 60. When asked how long she will continue, she replies, “as long as

I feel young, I’ll keep going.” At the age of 60, Belleau went back to school for Infant/Toddler Certification, passed with As throughout the course outline, went to school in Kamloops and then Williams Lake for the last six months. A respected elder, she received a BC Achievement award in May 2012 for her work and dedication. As a winnner, she was presented with the award by Honourable Steven Point in Victoria. Today, at the age of 76, she continues to work with the Esk’etemc Headstart/ Daycare in Alkali Lake and is well respected and known throughout the territory for her dedication and contributions to First Nation children’s success. Robbins says he once asked Belleau why she has been able to do the work she does for so long a period. Her re-

ply: “All children deserve respect, love and recognition, as long as I can give it I will.” Over the years, she made a small store at her small three-bedroom home, and filled it with chips, pop, ice cream, pizza pops, homemade cookies/cakes, etc. All the funds she raised went to less fortunate children who couldn’t afford to play organized sports, as well as assisting parents with food costs. Today Belleau donates her time to ensure

the children and parents of the Headstart/ Daycare get a field trip (vacation) and she is instrumental in fundraising efforts. She lives a traditional lifestyle and with what little she has, she gives, knowing the need is always there. Complete strangers leave her home with full stomachs and food for the road ahead. Through her experiences, she will ‘never’ leave anyone behind, children are her life. She was a sun dancer

for four years and today she supports and teaches the ways a Secwepemc speaker keeps the language strong. Even today when words can’t be found, people will call Belleau and she gladly delivers. With her gentle, kind soul, she can be seen and recognized walking and even running. She always participates. Where you see children enjoying themselves, Belleau will be there as a participant or the cheerleader.


Billboard promotes Cariboo mountain biking A 10’ x 20’ billboard has been strategically placed en route to Whistler in an effort to promote Williams Lake, and area, as a premiere mountain biking destination. The billboard, which will remain in place for the majority of the summer, is the result of a partnership between the City of Williams Lake, Cariboo Regional District (CRD), the Cariboo Mountain Biking Consortium and the Northern Development Initiative Trust. The billboard directs viewers to the www. website. This website showcases the unique trails and mountain biking culture that the Cariboo has to offer. The promotion of Williams Lake as a mountain bike destination is identified in the City’s Business Expansion and Attraction (BEAS) Strategy. “We were really fortunate to secure that particular location for the billboard as the majority of mountain bikers in British Columbia travel that length of highway each summer on their way to Whistler. Ideally, we will tap into that market and steer people from the lower mainland to all the great mountain biking that we have in the Cariboo,” says Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook. The billboard image, which was provided by John Wellburn, captures Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium sponsored rider James Doerfling along the “Ashtray” near Williams Lake and is sure to grab attention from passing motorists.

To the bankers & shareholders of our major forest industries and their employees; mill, plant and forestry workers from First Nations and independent forest companies; reman plants; professionals; concerned citizens: Please join Mayor Cook, TRU Dean Dr. Ray Sanders, Paul French Steelworkers Union, Chief Irvine Charleyboy and myself to encourage our government and our major mills to discover a new business model that includes these benefits: • A healthy forest as the new reduced Annual Allowable Cut combined with this business model will prevent 1.2 billion pounds of wood waste from reaching our dumps each year and provide the needed fiber supply. • Revenues will double. • There will be no job loss. • Williams Lake will not suffer any lost wages or production down time. • First Nations and independent forest companies will maintain current harvest levels. • This model optimizes the many lengths offered by our trees so there will be a substantive reduction in left over slash piles. • An opportunity arises for a social contract that earns profits for the industry (i.e. the development of patents needed now and into the future). • The model can be fully operational in 15 months. This model also includes 3 key reasons for success: 1. We can offer the lowest price. 2. Industry leading quality products for customers and carbon credits 3. Producer/customer partnership in preventing 1.2 billion pounds of garbage each year. A meeting to reach a memorandum of understanding needs CEOs and their choice of saw and planer mill experts, an accountant and government officials to discuss the details. Find out more at the Special Committee on Timber Supply meeting, Thursday July 5, 2012, Time 8pm at Conference Room B #118, Pioneer Complex, 351 Hodgson Road, Williams Lake.
