Arrest made Toughin’ it out through the dust in B&E One person was arrested following a break and enter south of Williams Lake Monday. Police say that in the early hours of July 2, the Williams Lake RCMP responded to report of a break and enter in progress at a rural property about 30 kilometres south of Williams Lake on Highway 97. While en route, members were updated that the suspect had fled the scene in a blue Chevrolet vehicle, heading toward Williams Lake. The responding members located the suspect vehicle and arrested the lone occupant without incident. A subsequent search resulted in the recovery of the stolen property as well as  a large quantity of drugs with a street value in excess of $10,000. The drugs are believed to be unrelated to the break and enter. The male suspect is from the Prince George area and well known to police. The suspect remains in custody and was to appear in court July 3.

One of the most exciting, albeit dangerous, events at the Williams Lake Stampede, the Mountain Horse Race, provided four days of action for spectators at this year’s 86th Annual Williams Lake Stampede. This ride, during Saturday’s performance, saw (back from left) Alexis Creek’s Darren Sulin and Merritt’s Chris Dieleman, Patrick McLoud (front from left) and Steve Quilt emerge from a cloud of dust before making their way around the track and into the grandstand arena. This year’s overall title in the Mountain Horse Race was won by Nemiah Valley’s Roger William, followed by Jimmy Lulua, also from Nemiah Valley.

People heading to the Anahim Lake Stampede this weekend need to know there’s been a cluster of positive cases of swamp fever at the Ulkatcho reserve, says Williams Lake veterinarian Dr. Doug Magnowski, adding swamp fever, caused by infectious anemia virus (EIAV), results in the death of horses. “The Canadian Food Inspection Agency found four or five positive cases out of six or seven that were tested at Ulkatcho. It’s not something that’s brand new; there’s probably a reservoir of horses out west that carry it,” he says, noting there hasn’t been any cases for several years. On June 29, he faxed a letter to the Anahim Lake Community Association outlining his concerns. “The problem is we’ve got a very hot strain of virus that is creating an issue and we don’t know how big the issue is. Of the 150 horses that roam the reserve, how many are positive?” he says. Magnowski wants people to realize they will be taking outside horses into the area at the peak of horsefly season. The disease can be transmitted by flies carrying blood or plasma from infected horses, but cannot be transmitted to humans. If people are intent on going to the stampede, Magnowski says they need to be fly aware. Keep horses inside at dawn and dusk when fly times are peak and use effective fly repellent and screens.

Float plane crash kills local man The pilot and lone occupant who was killed in a float plane crash near Williams Lake Saturday has been confirmed to be Montague (Monty) Exton, 77, from Williams Lake. Cpl. Chris McGee of the Williams Lake RCMP reported that at 9:55 p.m. Saturday, June 30, Williams Lake RCMP were advised of an overdue float plane. The private plane had departed Williams Lake around 1:40 p.m. and was due to return to Williams

Lake at 5 p.m. The BC Coroners Service says Exton's privately owned Cessna 185 float plane was reported missing after he failed to return from a routine flight. Search and rescue was advised and a fixed wing aircraft and helicopter were dispatched from Comox, B.C. An aerial search was conducted and a downed float plane was located approximately nine kilometres

north west of Williams Lake, near the Fraser River. "Examination of the scene confirmed the pilot and lone occupant of this aircraft and did not survive the crash," McGee reports. The investigation is now being led by the BC Coroners Service with assistance from the RCMP. The BC Coroners Service, with the assistance of the Transportation Safety Board and the RCMP, is continuing to investigate.

Driver arrested after vehicle crashes and flips A vehicle crashed into a power pole and flipped onto its roof Thursday night. Police say that at about midnight the RCMP attempted to pull over a

1998 Ford pick-up truck after it was observed driving close to parked vehicles, nearly hitting them in the 200 block of Second Avenue North. As emergency lights

and sirens were activated, the vehicle fled, going more than 100 kilometres per hour, southbound, on Mackenzie Avenue. Emergency equipment on the police vehicle was

shut off as it was deemed too dangerous to initiate a pursuit under the circumstances. Moments later, the vehicle was located near Mackenzie Avenue and

Highway 20 where it had crashed into a power pole and flipped onto its roof. The RCMP say the driver and passenger were located at the scene with the vehicle and escaped

with relatively minor injuries that did not require hospitalization. The driver was arrested on an outstanding warrant as well as  impaired driving.

Sport Mart in Boitanio Mall to close doors this November Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer SportMart in Boitanio Mall in Williams Lake will be closing in November. Rob Nicol, associate vice president of govern-

ment relations Canadian Tire corporation, confirmed the closure last Thursday. Sport Mart was owned by Forzani Group, which was acquired by Canadian Tire in 2011.

“Forzani operated banners including Athletes World, Sport Chek, Sport Mart and a few other banners,” Nicol explained. When asked if the Canadian Tire store in

Williams Lake will be expanding its sports goods section, Nichol said nothing has been finalized, but anything Canadian Tire can do to encourage Sport Mart customers to migrate

over to Canadian Tire store will be looked at. “What that entails and what that will look like, exact product assortment, those are details that still need to be figured out.”

City to present to timber supply committee Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Mayor Kerry Cook is first up to make a presentation at today’s timber supply hearings at the Pioneer Complex, beginning at 4 p.m. “It’s important that the province strongly consider the impact of timber supply discussions on communities, workers and businesses,” Cook said at Tuesday’s council meeting. “Municipal government should be directly involved in the release of information from the province to the general public when that information has the volatility to create economic

angst.” Williams Lake has recently gone through having lots of information coming at it with regards to the future and the uncertainty with forests, so this is an opportunity to set the record straight with what’s currently going on, Cook said. “It’s important to ensure we have a sustainable forest industry in Williams Lake for all the people that are involved directly and indirectly in this industry.” Another subject Cook will discuss is mitigation strategies. She said they must be open to community stakeholders, be fact based, and encourage el-

ements of certainty, not foster economic crisis and instability by propagating speculation and rumour. “It’s important to have all the facts for the community to move forward.” Because each area is unique, she said timber

Food vendor pilot project to run in WL Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer People wanting to set up mobile food vending in the city’s downtown have until July 12 to throw their name into the hat to be part of a pilot project that will run mid July until the end of October. The city is proposing four areas that mobile vendors can operate. They include Spirit Square, Kiwanis Park, Boitanio Park and Herb Gardner Park. Council passed a recommendation for the project at its Tuesday council meeting. “This is something that’s up and coming in so many different municipalities and fits into our vision for the downtown and adds to a lively downtown,” said Mayor Kerry Cook. Staff and council had lots of discussion around how to advertise, select vendors, and charge vendors. “We have already received several requests from people that are interested,” Cook said. City planner Liliana Dragowska said the fee for the pilot project will be $200 per vendor, per spot, per month, in addition to the licensing for mobile vending which is $200 for the year. A report submitted to council highlighted how staff looked at a similar project in Vancouver. “We worked with our workyard staff and a number of vendors who have made inquiries and came up with the four areas in town. There are other alternatives that we considered, but we felt there needs to A3

be more public engagement particularly around those sites,” Dragowska explained. Many other communities are moving toward regulating mobile food vendors, and while the city wants to look at regulations, a pilot project was the best way to get things up and running for this season. Dragowska told council there may be some push back from the community on some of the locations and what’s being allowed because so far the bylaws have restricted mobile vending to private property. “We do have some mobile vendors that operate within Williams Lake at the Farmer’s Market or on private property, but nothing on the streets that has been permitted. One of the sites is right in front of city hall in the on-street parking.” City Hall has heard concerns about those sites that sometimes people park too long in the spots and that there is limited street parking available on Oliver Street. However, the city has heard that those spots would be ideal for mobile vending. After the pilot project, city staff will bring a report with recommendations to council. At the meeting council also received a proposal from the Williams Lake Central Business Improvement Area Association for a Chuck Wagon Concession to be erected on Community Corner at Oliver Street and Third Avenue as a year-round food vendor.

City, CRD yet to agree on fire protection Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake city council has resolved to maintain the status quo when it comes to providing fire protection. The resolution has the Cariboo Regional District investigating alternative options because it says the cost is too high for rural taxpayers. At Tuesday evening’s council meeting, Mayor Kerry Cook said the city currently has three agreements for fire protection — one between the city and the province, and two between the city and the Cariboo Regional District. “City council supports continuation of the current agreements to provide Williams Lake rural fringe fire protection,” Cook said. “The two agreements with the CRD have expired and council is in favour of combining all of the agreements and working with the CRD to find an agreement that is equitable for the city and the CRD.”

On Friday, however, the CRD issued a press release stating negotiations on a new fringe area protection agreement had unfortunately broken down after the city rejected the new proposal. “This new agreement would have seen the Williams Lake Fire Department continue to provide fire protection services to fringe area residents under one amalgamated agreement between the city and the CRD,” the press release says. “The new proposal, developed by the Williams Lake Fire Protection SubCommittee established last fall by the Central Cariboo Joint Committee would have resulted in a more equitable cost sharing arrangement for all residents.” Responding Tuesday, Coun. Surinderpal Rathor challenged the notion that talks have broken down. “There are no broken talks,” he said. “We received a letter. The letter stated the four options. We are no differ-

ent protecting our area than the regional district directors protecting their area. We said this was the option we would accept. We want to work with the CRD and not be bashing against each other. It was never the intention of the council and I would respectfully request that my colleagues on the other side of the table should refrain from making such comments.” Cook reiterated that the city wants to work with the CRD to find an agreement that is equitable for both sides. Joan Sorley, Area F director for the CRD, was at the Central Cariboo Joint Committee meeting when the fire agreements were discussed. She said she had told everyone present she was very disappointed “negotiations had broken down” and that there would be a press release going out. Sorley told the Tribune Wednesday the agreement drawn up by the province and the city to provide fire protection to fringe areas pre-dated the

existence of the CRD. “The Cariboo Regional District has never been party to this agreement, but our taxpaying residents are paying taxes based on this agreement. Over the years, what has happened, is that the taxes to the regional district residents have become proportionately more than their fair share.” She estimated rural residents are paying for close to 70 per cent of the service, while around 26 per cent of the calls are to rural areas within the fringe fire protection area. “It’s because of the formula. The city takes the total tax base in the city and the total tax base of the rural area and divides it up to pay for fire protection. In the rural area we don’t have business or industry, but the city does, so business and industry are taking the bulk of that so city residents don’t pay as much.” The CRD proposed to take a total taxation and divide it up so residents are paying equal. It would see rural resi-

dents paying about 27 per cent of the cost of the service, which is more in line for what they’re actually getting, and doesn’t unfairly skew it for the residential tax base, Sorley said. Rural residents have had two big fire tax bills and are upset that their fire protection taxes have doubled for some residents in the last two years, she added. The CRD believes the new agreement it worked on was fair. “It was maybe more than our taxpayers would want to pay, but it was fair and we would support it. We’re not prepared to support anything less than that.” Sorely said there’s no ability for further talks between the city and the CRD. “The province has said they are not prepared to continue with the agreement and the onus is on us to come up with something that will replace it. The city has declined to do that so we need to find alternatives for fire providing protection.”

Williams Lake Tribune Thursday, July 5, 2012



The City of Williams Lake is pleased to announce its Toilet Replacement Incentive Program will be offered again in 2012, and has been expanded to include clothes washers and dishwashers The program has been designed to assist residents of Williams Lake in replacing their old inefficient toilets, clothes washers, and dishwashers with new, more efficient models . Older toilets can use as much as 20 litres of water per use whereas newer low flow toilets use only 4.8 litres or less, some using as little as 3 litres. As a result, changing only one toilet to a more efficient model can save tens of thousands of litres of water per year. Replacing residential toilets also saves wastewater entering the sewage treatment plant, saving on treatment costs and on the amount of effluent leaving the plant. A total of $25,000 is being made available for this program in 2012. The rebates are as follows: Toilets: • The amount of the receipt to a maximum of $75 for a 4.8 litre flush toilet. • The amount of the receipt to a maximum of $100 for a 4.8/3 litre flush toilet. • The amount of the receipt to a maximum of $125 for a 3 litre flush toilet. • A rebate for contractors who build new homes can receive a $75 rebate for installation of a 3 litre toilet instead of the standard 4.8 litre. Clothes Washers and Dishwashers: • Amount of the receipt to a maximum of $150 for appliances that have a Water Factor of less than 6, and the amount of the receipt to a maximum of $200 for appliances that have a Water Factor of 3 or less. For a list of appliances and the Water factor, visit Click on Departments, Planning and Operations, Water Conservation. The City of Williams Lake will be implementing the Toilet Replacement Program between June 1 and August 31 on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is a limit if two toilet/appliance rebates per residential dwelling per year. Applications and information brochures are available at City Hall, and information brochures will be available online at

ELECTRORECYCLE: B.C.’S SMALL APPLIANCE E & POWER TOOL RECYCLING PROGRAM Starting July 1st, 2012, British Columbians will be able to recycle even more of their old or broken electrical products such as small appliances, power tools (e.g. hand-held drills), sewing machines and exercise equipment (e.g. treadmills) as ElectroRecycle expands to include new product categories. About ElectroRecycle, the Small Appliance and Power Tool Recycling Program ElectroRecycle (formerly known as Unplugged) is the first comprehensive recycling program for electrical household products in Canada and the only government-approved program in British Columbia. Developed by the Canadian Electrical Stewardship Association (CESA), ElectroRecycle is one of 14 other successful industry-managed recycling programs operating in B.C. for everything from beverage containers, electrical outdoor power equipment, lights, tires and electronics, to batteries, oil, gasoline and other flammables. The expanded ElectroRecycle program accepts more than 300 different types of electrical products ranging in size from electric toothbrushes, toasters and hand-held power drills to sewing machines, countertop microwaves and treadmills. ElectroRecycle has more than 100 accessible and convenient drop-off locations across B.C. ensuring all British Columbians can recycle their electrical products for free in their communities. For areas not yet served by drop-off locations, there will be scheduled collection events operated in collaboration with other organizations. ElectroRecycle and the Environment B.C. is a leader in recycling programs. A recent survey conducted by McAllister Opinion Research found that 97 per cent of British Columbians were somewhat or very likely to participate in a recycling program like ElectroRecycle , while 89 per cent said they would encourage others to take part as well. Over the past year alone, British Columbians have diverted nearly 20,000 metric tonnes of electronics, 40,000 tonnes of tires and over 1 billion non-alcohol beverage containers from landfills. Before ElectroRecycle existed, most small appliances in B.C. ended up in the landfill. The program offers a number of environmental benefits, such as saving energy: it takes less energy to recycle materials than it does to make them from scratch. For example, it takes 95% less energy to recycle aluminum and 74% less energy to recycle steel. Recycling glass takes 30% less energy to do. Funding ElectroRecycle As a non-profit recycling program, ElectroRecycle is fully funded by a recycling fee applied to the sale of new electrical products such as small appliances, power tools and exercise equipment brought into the province by manufacturers and retailers. The recycling fee covers all program costs, including collection, transportation and recycling, and may be included in a product’s price or displayed as a separate charge at check-out. ElectroRecycle is operated on a long-term cost-recovery basis and all fees collected stay within the program. Product Category Recycling Fees Kitchen Countertop Motorized (e.g. Blender) $2.25 Heating (e.g. Toaster) $2.25 Coffee/Tea (e.g. Coffee maker) $2.00 Microwaves Large (1 cubic foot or larger) $10.00 Small (Less than 1 cubic foot) $7.50 Floor Cleaning Large (e.g. Carpet cleaner) $5.25 Small (e.g. Hand-held vacuum) $1.00 Power Tools Test & Measurement Tools (e.g. Laser level) $0.75 Hand-held (e.g. Hand-held drill) $1.25 Free-standing/Bench-top (e.g. Table saw) $2.75 Measurement Time (e.g. Clock) $0.75 Weight (e.g. Scale) $2.75 Garment Care (e.g. Iron) $1.00 Air Treatment (e.g. Air purifier) $2.25 Desk & Tabletop Fans $1.25 Personal Care (e.g. Hair dryer) $1.00 Sewing & Textile (e.g. Sewing machine) $2.75 Exercise Machines (e.g. Treadmill) $4.25 Leisure, Arts & Crafts Devices (e.g. Electric binoculars) $0.75 Very Small Items (e.g. Electric air fresheners) $0.25 Where to go for More Information: A full list of accepted products can be found online at British Columbians can also submit their questions through the online Ask ElectroRecycle form or find a drop-off location in their community with the easy-to-use depot locator map.

Out of the black hole

Forestry still our future


hat a weekend! I hope everyone enjoyed the Stampede this year as much as I did. Certainly more people enjoyed it — the Stampede broke its attendance record. More than 16,000 people took in the rodeo! Congratulations to the Stampede Association and volunteers. And congratulations to the Daybreak Rotary for the parade Saturday. It was one of the From the best ever! Mayor’s Canada Day celChair ebrations Kerry Cook Sunday were also great. Thanks to the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society, sponsors Save On Foods and Concrete Fitness. I had the honour to welcome Premier Christy Clark to Williams Lake and the Stampede, and we, with MP Dick Harris, presented the Queen’s Jubilee medals to three outstanding citizens and Stampede volunteers: Fred Thomas, Willie Crosina, and Claudia Blair. The honour is well-deserved. Three more medals will be presented to city residents in the coming months. The amazing Kids Running for Kids had a special guest in Carey Price on Saturday. What a fantastic way to kick off their journey. They’ve already exceeded their original goal of raising $25,000 for B.C. Children’s Hospital, and are now shooting for $100,000! I am presenting the city’s statement to the Legislative Special Committee on Mid-Timber Supply today. Forestry has been, and will continue to be, vital to our region, and despite the naysayers, it’s important to remember that forestry will be here next year. The city supports the development of a mitigation strategy and plan that addresses the forecasted mid-term timber supply. It must be done in such a way that it will not adversely affect First Nations or forest users in areas such as mining, ranching, tourism and recreation, and we need to ensure that nothing we do today jeopardizes the future of our children. Finally, the process to develop a mitigation strategy and plan must be open and transparent, it must be done quickly, and the information must be accurate and factual. Forests are a publicly owned resource, so the public and stakeholders have a right to know what’s going on and to have input. We must make sure those kinds of decisions are based on facts and not rumours, speculation or myths. We all want a sustainable future in forestry. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.


Our Viewpoint

Well done The Williams Lake Stampede clearly was another smashing success this past weekend. A heart-felt “good job� goes out to everyone who was involved in organizing and being a part of the 86th annual rodeo. It was also well-attended, with record breaking numbers filling the stands. Though it rained a lot this past weekend, for the most part the rain was kept at bay during performance time. And the Daybreak Rotary Stampede Parade also didn’t get rained on. Yippee! Good job to all of the Rotary folk involved in organizing that event too, and thanks to the many people who chose to get involved this year, either again or for the first time. Many of you wore fantastic costumes, had creative floats, and knew how to carry on the theme of rock n’ roll. The street party was, of course, a hit as well and,

like all of the events this Stampede weekend, seemed to be bigger than usual. We send a “way to goâ€? out to the Central Business Improvement Area Association for organizing that event that is sure to entice visitors to shop in our fine city once again. There were also the Canada Day celebrations on Sunday — it was nice to see so many people take pride in their country by taking part in the celebrations. Until next year ‌ yeehaw! *** The Tribune would also like to send our condolences out to the family and friends of Monty Exton, who was tragically killed in a float plane accident on Saturday. Mr. Exton was well-known and well-respected — his passing is a great loss to this community.

pending too much time in the legislature in Victoria is not a good thing for MLAs, for the staff who serve them, and for the reporters who cover what happens inside its hallowed halls. It’s euphemistically called the “black hole� for a reason. T h e l eg i s l a ture is MLA a world Musings unto itBob Simpson self. It has its own history. Its own code of conduct and its own measure of what constitutes acceptable behavior — some of which would not be acceptable in any classroom in any of the province’s schools. During a long session, like the one we had this past spring, it’s too easy to allow one’s thinking to be distorted by the political machinations that go on day in, day out within the confines of the legislative precinct. To allow oneself to believe that people really pay attention or care about each jot and tittle of a bill. Or, that the attempts to manipulate public opinion through Question Period or through dueling press releases actually affect public opinion. That’s why it’s always such a tonic to get back into the constituency for an extended period of time; to get quality time with the people who elected me and to tour the communities I was elected to represent. It’s the only way for any MLA to get grounded in the reality of the people they are supposed to be representing. This week I brought my Victoria staff up to the Cariboo to give them the same opportunity to spend some extended time in the constituency, so they too can get grounded in the reality of the people whom they serve. Together with my constituency office staff, we spent time touring the riding and meeting with the people whose interests we represent in the BC legislature. Having my entire team understand the geography and the needs of the people of Cariboo North is critical to my being an effective voice for you in Victoria. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

Closed gate a welcome change Question of the week Editor:

An open letter to Mayor Kerry Cook and city council: We would like to thank city council for avoiding a tragedy by closing the emergency gate on the west side of the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Having lived in the 200 block of

Fifth Avenue for many years and walked through this route several times a week we know how dangerous it was. Small children would run out as they played around the bleachers when a baseball game was in progress. Hundreds of children and parents walk across the parking lot to skate, swim or play hockey.

Seniors (that’s us) walk to the Senior’s Activity Centre and many times come very close to being hit by a vehicle. This route was an accident waiting to happen and now has been avoided thanks to the foresight of our current mayor and council. Thank you so much. Doug and Floris Martineau. Williams Lake

Throwing candy forbidden at parade Editor: I would like to congratulate the Daybreak Rotary Club for all the hard work it put into the 2012 Stampede Parade. The parade was well organized and ran very smoothly. Thanks to all the volunteers who assisted.

The one concern I have about the parade is throwing of candy from their entry by the mayor and council. My understanding is that there has been a rule in place for several years that people will hand out candy and not throw it into the crowd. The very good reason for this is the safety of the children who run

out to get the fallen candy and possibly put themselves in danger. Perhaps the council, who are the elected officials, should be setting an example to others and follow the rules, guiding the events in which they participate. Penny McIntosh Williams Lake

Full consultation required by the courts Editor: As BC Conservative party leader John Cummins was in Williams Lake recently, I can’t help but comment on a rather irresponsible remark that he made concerning a single group having veto power over the proposed mine at Fish Lake. John Cummins knows full well that this is not the case. Veto power by definition only applies to power

granted to senates or presidents of republic states. I think that Mr. Cummins needs to re-think his language as his use of this word is not only misleading, but also inflammatory. I don’t know how many times the fact of the matter has to be repeated but I will do so again for the sake of peace, and so that anyone who cares has the facts. In the case of the proposed mine at Fish Lake, full

consultation with First Nations is not only morally necessary, but full consultation is now, as it has been from the beginning, required by the courts of the land. While so many people have gone off in a tangent, valuable time has been wasted, relations have been strained, and for what? Dave Ligertwood Okanagan Falls (former Williams Lake resident)

If we don’t make the transition we will start to die off Editor: If unlimited economic growth is like an aggressive stage four or stage five global economic cancer ‌ what is it that holds us back from an aggressive cure which could help our future generations sustain themselves? Terry Lake (June 27, 2012) says B.C. is going to meet its short-term goal for reducing greenhouse gas emissions ‌ six per cent by 2012. Longer-term goals ‌ 33 per cent reduction by 2020 ‌ 80 per cent reduction by 2050 ‌ are in doubt with three LNG energy intensive plants developed by 2020. Kevin Falcon says we must review our greenhouse gas reductions taking B.C. to an economic


“competitiveâ€? disadvantage to exploit our natural resources. B.C. mining is exploring for coal in the high-Arctic. We have a large coal industry. There are no limits to developing a “cleanâ€? natural gas industry. We want Alberta “dirtyâ€? tarsand bitumen in pipelines across B.C. shipped in our coastal waters. The fossil-fuel industry says any damage will be offset by economic benefits ‌ for who? Rather ‌ we need to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions 80 per cent ‌by 2020 ‌to help global temperatures to stay below 2C. With present efforts ‌ we may expect 2C by 2030 ‌ 3C to 3.5C by 2050 ‌ 4C to 5C by 2099 with a global population of eight billion by 2030 ‌ nine billion by 2050 ‌

all demanding more energy exponentially ‌ green or fossil fuel? Terry Lake might review B.C.’s goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to help the world stay below 2C ‌ instead of priority on an unsustainable unlimited fossil-fuel based economy. Review false security ‌ with all the decencies of civilized life being sacrificed.  Imagine half the world’s human population (four to five billion) or all of us dying off ‌ cruelly.  Exceeding 2C is unacceptable for sustaining any civilization.  We will make an aggressive cure ‌ a rapid transition to a green economy in time ‌ or start to die off.

This week’s online question:

Did your garden survive all of the rain? Log onto the Opinion section at to vote Last week’s question: Are you taking in the Canada Day YES: 32 per cent NO: 68 per cent celebrations?

Be a proud Canadian Editor: Two of the respondents to this question (What makes you proud to be a Canadian?) in last week’s Question of the Week stated that they were proud not to be American. What negative comments! Were they unable to think of even one positive aspect of being Canadian?

Such things as health care, justice, education, freedom of expression come to mind, and especially, the compassion of her citizens for others in times of trouble. If we believe in ourselves and in our country, it is not necessary to define ourselves only by comparison to others. Mary Ellison Williams Lake

Hustlers three-peat as Stampede champs Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer For the third consecutive year the Williams Lake Hustlers marched away from the Stampede Rugby Tournament as champions. This year, however, it was more than winning a coveted belt buckle. They dedicated their victory to fellow Hustler and friend Rayel MacDonald, who was struck and killed by a vehicle earlier this year. Hustlers player and member of Canada’s national women’s team, Kayla Moleschi, said MacDonald gave everyone inspiration. “We had something worth fighting for this year,� Moleschi said, following the Hustlers’ 43-0 drubbing of Capilano in the final. “It wasn’t just to win a buckle, it was more than that. It was deep in our hearts — we’re wearing it on our sleeves and she’s pushed everyone through. We’d be tired and she’d pick us up. Everyone just kept on playing.� The Hustlers had just one try scored against them the entire weekend, finishing with six wins and no losses. The Hustlers beat KABB (Kamloops and Abbotsford) 37-0 to advance to the final Sunday morning using unmatched tenacity, toughness and speed to walk over their opponents. Paul Carnes, coach of the Hustlers, said the play of Claire Lawrence, Moleschi, Krystle Carpenter, Sheridan Davis, Jasmyn Niquidet and Carola Kreis was outstanding. “I’ve had these girls for three years now and each year they improve,� he said. “They’ve matured so well as far as playing ability, and I’m very proud of them. It’s quite emotional [this year] for them. But they’re pro-

fessional about it. They have a game plan and they’re easy to coach.� This year’s most sportsmanlike award, presented to Capilano player Ashley Robinson, was renamed to the Rayel MacDonald Award. Moleschi was also presented the women’s MVP award. The men’s side saw three Williams Lake Rustlers teams in action — one old boys team, one younger team and a team of experienced veterans. The old boys beat Semiahmoo 40-0 before losing to Abbotsford, 15-5. Most sportsmanlike player went to Williams Lake’s Trent Domich, while MVP was awarded to Abbotsford’s Jason Copp. Williams Lake’s younger team opened with a 29-7 loss to Capilano and a 17-0 defeat to Surrey; however, bounced back to win 22-12 over Courtney in the consolation semifinal. The Rustlers experienced team

Saibo Talic brings his renowned soccer camp back to Williams Lake for another year of coaching in Williams Lake.

Prior to that they lost to Abbotsford, 19-17, before beating Courtney, 32-7. In the consolation final Williams

Crash to Pass and All Class Invitational crowd pleasers Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Hundreds of fans turned up for the biggest racing weekend of the year at Thunder Mountain Speedway. And this year’s action didn’t disappoint. Friday night fans were treated to a free-for-all of carnage, mayhem and wrecks when 18 drivers from around B.C. pushed their cars and trucks to the brink of a trip to the scrap yard in the Crash to Pass extravaganza. Williams Lake’s Carl Rosk, the only driver who chose to enter a pickup truck in the race, kept a consistent pace throughout the 100-lap main event, ultimately taking home


first place and the checkered flag. Shortly behind him was Quesnel’s Richard Davis in second, followed by Agassiz’s Bill Koenders in third. Koenders, to his credit, survived a nasty wreck late in the race, flipping his car twice before it landed on its roof. However, just before first aid and track personnel were able to pull him out of the crushed vehicle, Koenders emerged by himself, flailing his hands in the air, signaling to the crowd he was OK. For that he was awarded the best roll over and crowd pleaser award. Saturday night Thunder Mountain hosted the All Class Invitational, featuring drivers from throughout the province.

The City of Williams Lake’s Recreation Services department have teamed up to offer a new one-day flag football camp and a flag football league to young members of the community. The Flag Football Camp goes Saturday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. (eight to 11 year olds) and from 1 to 3 p.m. (12 to 18 year olds). Cost of the camp is $17.50. From there a Flag Football League will run Monday and Wednesday nights at a to be determined location. Age groups are the same, and games will be played from 5 to 6 p.m. and from 6 to 7 p.m. For more or to register contact the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 250398-7665.

Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake kickboxer Kanyon Gleeson kept his perfect record intact during a recent bout in Dawson Creek. Gleeson, 17, who trains out of Williams Lake Muay Thai, improved his record to four wins and no losses following a June 23 test in Dawson Creek against Terrace’s Marcus Bryant. The fight, sanctioned by the Mixed Martial Arts Association of B.C. (MMABC), went the entire three rounds before Gleeson was awarded the decision. Gleeson’s trainer and owner of Williams Lake Muay Thai, Paul Rosborough, said Gleeson dominated from bell to bell. “Kanyon stayed at range with fast, hard jabs

Steven Turner of Cochrane, Alta. scored big points (86) and earned himself a huge payday ($4,613.52) by riding Little Aylmer to the eightsecond whistle in Sunday’s go-round at the Williams Lake Stampede. This spectacular dismount, however, was also worthy of a high score, particularly if he had been competing in a gymnastic event (the 2012 Summer Olympics).

“They call the Cariboo home” Marcel Desponds — a busy beekeeper Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer There does not seem to be any indication that 75-year-old Marcel Desponds of Williams Lake is about to slow down. Although he’s a retired carpenter, he is very busy. He keeps bees, makes furniture, gardens, volunteers, and loves to fish. Originally from the small village of Urdorf near Zurich, Switzerland, he completed six years of elementary school, two years of secondary school, and three and a half years learning the carpentry trade. He grew up playing soccer, doing gymnastics, wrestling and skiing. After a four-month posting in the Swiss army, Desponds and two friends headed to Canada in 1957. The three friends first arrived in Ontario and were hired to work on a farm. Between 1957 and 1958, Desponds also worked as a finishing carpenter. When work dried up, the young men started in Winnipeg and headed west looking for work. They went up to Edmonton and Fort St. John for three weeks, without success, and then headed to Vancouver. “We got work through the unemployment office milking 78 cows on Lulu Island near Richmond. We got up at 3 a.m. to milk the cows. Then we went to pick strawberries in Aldergrove for two and a half weeks in June,” he remembers. From there they jumped around doing odd jobs such as piling peat, with a bit of carpentry thrown in. Then in January 1959, Desponds was hired at the sawmill in Likely. That first mill broke down and eventually Desponds landed a job as a carpenter in the Netherlands Overseas Mill, working on houses and buildings at the site. In May 1959, Desponds quit and got a job in Williams Lake with a construction company, again as a carpenter, and from then on worked for various construction

Marcel Desponds with his garden in the background. companies in the city. While he was working for local contractor Al Siebert, a crew went to Prince George to work on the American Army radar station. “We built the covered walkway from one radar tower to another,” Desponds says. He also helped build a pier for the bridge at Quesnel. In 1963, after working on a high rise in Ottawa, he returned to Switzerland for a visit. While there, he enrolled in a five-week course being offered by the Jesuit fathers to train to work as a lay missionary in Africa. “Everyone in the course had a position to go to, but because I had arrived late in the course I didn’t. When a Canadian bishop came to Switzerland looking for carpenters, mechanics, and other tradesmen, I talked with him and told him I was a furniture maker, and specialized in frame work, but not upholstery.” As a result, Desponds spent 1964 to 1967 in Malawi, Africa, working as a carpenter. At the time Malawi, formerly Nayasaland, had just gained its independence. “There was lots of trouble at that time. Kamuza Bonda, who was a doctor, became Malawi’s first leader,” Desponds says. The walls of Desponds’ living room are lined with some select photographs he took and developed while there.

Pointing to one with a large tree in the foreground, he explains it’s a pointsettia — that’s how big they grow there. Another photograph shows the vast landscape near where he worked, while a third depicts a small child crying. “That’s little Patrick. The M,M,M on his shirt was from the Medical Missionaries of Mary,” he explains. From Africa he returned home to Switzerland and eventually arrived back in Williams Lake in 1969, resuming carpentry work. In 1972 he started P&M Construction with a friend to do concrete frame work, but after a year he quit because the concrete work was bothering his back. He went back to working for other contractors, which he continued doing up until he retired. Some of the projects he worked on in Williams Lake include the CIBC on Oliver Street and the Williams Lake Youth Soccer Association club house at the Esler Sports Complex. These days he continues to volunteer doing carpentry work at Sacred Heart Church and the apartments owned by the Knights of Columbus nearby. Another one of his past times is beekeeping, something he started in 1976 after taking a weekend course at Cariboo College (now Thompson Rivers University).



His first site for bees was up at Kersley near the Marguerite Ferry, until he realized that location was too far away from his home in Williams Lake if something went wrong. He tried having bee hives in his backyard, but when the neighbours put in a hot tub, it attracted the bees, so they asked Desponds if he would move the hives. Attempts at Rose Lake and Soda Creek were thwarted, because they were smashed up by bears, so when another beekeeper, who kept bees on Sunset Drive, passed away Desponds took those bees over and added some of his own. Today he has three hives on Sunset Drive and one more further up on Fox Mountain. “The bears smashed these ones up six times in seven years, even crawling under the fence at the back corner,” he says of his present location. “They take everything out when they leave too.” On one of those occasions, when he arrived and attempted to put the hives back in order, he received 50 bee stings. During a Thursday afternoon routine visit to his beehives, he warns that one should never approach a beehive from the front.

“If the bees are out collecting pollen they’ll come flying back in and possibly get caught in your hair and then sting you if they’re mad,” he says. As he adds a few additional frames into the three hives, he pulls out a few to check on the status of the honey. Honey is in some of the frames, but in others the bees haven’t started making any yet. Desponds is protected in a full beekeeping suit — one that has an official beekeeping sheriff emblem on the left pocket. He secures the neck area with some extra duct tape because he doesn’t want any bees getting inside. Furniture he’s handcrafted graces his kitchen and dining room. There are elegant chairs, a round table, and a built-in bench, the designs he’s used to make for friends as well. Out in his backyard, he offers up a bag of spinach from his garden, and even though the weekend is around the corner, everything’s growing abundantly. There are carrots, spinach, cabbage, potatoes and more. Looking up to the dark clouds in the sky, he looks at the lawn, shrugs and smiles. “I’d better mow it before the rain comes,” he says.

Marcel Desponds inspects the status of his honey at one of three beehives he keeps on Sunset Drive. Desponds has been beekeeping since 1976, trying various locations.
