Strike targets liquor warehouses Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. Government and Service Employees Union launched strike action Tuesday with a oneday walkout at liquor distribution warehouses in Vancouver, Victoria and Kamloops. BCGEU chief negotiator David Vipond said the strike action is to protest the B.C. government’s plan to sell off the three warehouses as well as back the union’s demands. The union rejected an offer of a two per cent

wage increase this year and another 1.5 per cent next year, and is seeking about six per cent over two years after three years without a raise. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon responded to the union’s strike vote by suggesting the wage offer could be withdrawn. The government describes its current negotiating mandate as “co-operative gains,” where pay increases must be financed by cost reductions in work arrangement. Vipond said the BCGEU’s pro-

posal to raise revenue by opening more government liquor stores on Sundays was rejected. When the plan to sell liquor distribution operations was revealed in February’s budget, the union was told its jobs would be protected in the transition to a private operator if the Sunday opening proposal was withdrawn, he said. The BCGEU also represents deputy sheriffs, provincial jail staff, child protection social workers, forestry and forest firefighting staff. The union has not indicated what the next strike ac-

tion may be, but has vowed not to interfere with any public safety or emergency service duties. Another union proposal was to expand the duties of deputy sheriffs from court security to include traffic enforcement. That was also rejected with no explanation, Vipond said. “We can put three deputy sheriffs on the street for the price of two RCMP [officers],” he said. “They tried it in Alberta, and it was so successful they doubled the crew doing it in just a few months.”

Trustees endorse teacher contract Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. school trustees have embraced a contract extension for the B.C. Teachers’ Federation that promises labour peace in schools until next spring. With 85 per cent of boards of education participating Wednesday, the vote was unanimous in favour of the two-year contract that expires June 30, 2013. The deal imposes a two-year wage freeze on teachers, which had already been accepted by school support staff and other public sector unions in B.C. “Boards of education are pleased that we have been able to achieve agreements with all of our unionized staff in these challenging times,� said Melanie Joy, chair

of the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association. Teachers voted by a three-to-one margin last week to accept the contract extension, with 52 per cent of BCTF members casting ballots. The deal puts off a bitter dispute over government changes to hiring, layoff and performance evaluation of teachers. Education Minister George Abbott said the agreement includes a letter of understanding to continue talks on those issues. Those discussions are expected to resume this fall, dealing with professional development, evaluation and which issues are negotiated at the provincial and local level. The long-running dispute over class size and composition may also heat up again next

year as the B.C. Liberal government heads into an election campaign. BCTF president Susan Lambert said the agreement includes some improvements to teacher

benefits and leave provisions. But the union is going to court to argue that imposing a two-year wage freeze violates their constitutional right to collective bargaining.

Lambert has also indicated that the BCTF will once again work to unseat the B.C. Liberal government, as it has done with advertising and protests in recent elections.

AN APPLE A DAY... For the Olympic games starting in London later this month, the British team has been told to avoid handshaking with fellow participants and others. Since keeping healthy is of prime importance, they are just trying to minimize the chances of their athletes getting sick. Hand-sanitizers will certainly be much in use. One of the myths concerning sun exposure is that darkskinned people don’t need sunscreen protection. In the US, rates of skin cancers are on the rise in African Americans and Hispanics, so skin of all colours needs protection from the sun. The word steroid often conjures up a negative image. But this class of chemicals is flowing through our bodies naturally. Cholesterol is a building block for hormones. Cortisol comes from the kidneys and regulates energy and immune function. Sex hormones like testosterone and estrogens regulate sexual function. Steroids are also found in medications that help many conditions. Prednisone is a powerful oral steroid which is an anti-inflammatory to treat many conditions like severe rheumatoid arthritis. Steroids are also found in inhalers, enemas and skin creams. These products are very helpful in patients with asthma, inflammatory bowel conditions like Crohn’s disease, and severe skin rashes. Prescribed steroids can be extremely effective.

HEALTH, MIND & BODY Fight the bite — take precautions to avoid West Nile virus Interior Health is reminding residents to take extra precautions against mosquito bites this summer. West Nile virus, a disease that is spread from infected birds to humans through mosquito bites, has been present in B.C. since 2009. West Nile virus (WNv) was first detected in B.C. in the South Okanagan during the summer of 2009.  To date there have been three human cases of WNv acquired in B.C. — all of which have been in the Okanagan.  Several WNv cases in IH residents also occur due to travel to nearby provinces or states with higher levels of WNv mosquito activity.  “If you have been bitten by a mosquito, you do not have to be tested for WNv,” says Jennifer Jeyes, communicable disease specialist with Interior Health. “Most people who become infected with the virus will have no symptoms or ill effects at all. About 20 per cent of infected people may experience mild to severe flu-like symptoms and less than one per cent of people who are bitten by an infected mosquito will get severely ill. The elderly and people with compromised immune systems are generally more at risk of developing a severe illness in response to WNv exposure.” If you have mild health symptoms that you think might be from the West Nile virus, you should get plenty of rest, drink fluids, and avoid alcohol. If your symptoms persist and seem to be getting more severe, call your doctor.

While the risk of becoming seriously ill from WNv infection is low, it is important to remember there are preventative steps that everyone can take in order to reduce the risk of infection. The best protection against West Nile virus is to avoid mosquito bites and to reduce mosquito breeding areas. Here are some simple things we can all do: • Use mosquito repellent — apply mosquito repellent to areas of exposed skin. Check the product label for instructions on proper use. Repellents containing DEET are safe if the label precautions are followed.  DEETfree products are available, but may not provide as long-lasting protection. View the HealthFile on DEET (link below) for guidelines on how frequently to apply repellent. • Wear protective clothing — avoid dark clothing — it tends to attract mosquitoes. If you are in an area with lots of mosquitoes, wear loose fitting, full-length pants and a long-sleeved shirt to keep mosquitoes from

biting. Mosquitoes that can carry WNv are most active at dusk and at dawn. Avoid using perfumes, soaps, hair care products and lotions with floral fragrances. • Install mosquito screens on windows and consider staying indoors between dusk and dawn and in the early evening. • Prevent mosquito breeding around your home — It doesn’t take much time or water for mosquitoes to develop from eggs into adults. Anything that can hold water can be a mosquito breeding area. Identify and remove potential breeding areas on your property — empty saucers under flowerpots; change water in bird baths twice a week; unclog rain gutters; drain tarps, tires, and other debris where rain water may collect; and install a pump in ornamental ponds or stock them with fish. Stagnant backyard pools can be a big source of mosquitoes and should be maintained regularly to prevent mosquito growth. B.C. conducts a surveillance program

for West Nile virus which includes testing of dead birds in the corvid family: crows, ravens, magpies and jays. These birds are more likely than others to die from West Nile virus. The program also includes trapping and testing of mosquitoes from numerous sites in the province. Members of the public can report dead corvid birds (crows, ravens, magpies and jays).  For more information visit the BC Centre for Disease Control Dead Bird Reporting page at http://www.bccdc. ca/dis-cond/a-z/_w/ We s t N i l e Vi r u s / S u rveillance/WNvDead-

BirdReporting.htm. Interior Health will continue to collect mosquitoes for testing to detect and monitor the spread of the virus through the 2012 season.  Interior Health traps mosquitoes at 14 sites across the southern Interior and sends them to the provincial lab for testing. It also works with local governments to control mosquito populations and coordinate planning.  In the event that a positive mosquito and/or bird are found in an area that previously has not been shown to have West Nile virus, the public will be notified.

News Words of wisdom watered down

Williams Lake Weekend Friday, July 6, 2012


you turn something to the right — lids, bolts, hose couplings — it will tighten and if you turn it to the left it will loosen. There are a few exceptions, but on the whole you can’t go wrong with this marvelous little mantra. Or such was my thinking when I was recently asked for assistance in turning on a newly installed irrigation system. A lid nestled into the ground by the foundation of the house lifted to reveal a tangle of electrical wires and a row of three knobs. The first knob, I was told, was for starting the irrigation. With an air of confidence and the words, “Righty tighty, lefty loosey” tap dancing in my head, I knelt down and turned the knob to the left. Nothing seemed to be happening. “Lefty loosey,” I

said confidently. “What did you say?” asked the homeowner, starting to look concerned. I spun the knob a little more to the left. At this point water started running out from the bottom of the knob. Not a lot, but enough to catch our attention. For reasons which now seem shaky at best, I felt in order to slow the leak the knob needed to be loosened even more. My thinking was because the valve was not fully open the excess pressure was forcing water to exit where it should not be exiting. “A little more lefty loosey should do the trick,” I said, whistling a little. Whistling is always a good thing to do when you want to appear confident and project an air of calm. It was a short whistle. Imagine, if you will, my great consternation when instead of stopping the leak, turning the knob caused it to come off in my hand altogether. The situation quickly escalated as an impressive geyser shot up from the knob hole, blasted me in the face, wetting my whistle before projecting itself another 20 feet in the

air where it thundered against the soffit and rained back down on our heads. I stood with my mouth hanging open, the lefty loosened knob dangling from my hand, my water logged glasses blinding me to the look on the homeowner’s face, which was probably just as well. Then, since my mouth was filling up with water, I closed it, wiped at my glasses, fought off the urge to flee and bent down to try and rectify the situation. “Oh my goodness!” shouted the homeowner, wondering whatever had possessed her to think that my knowing the difference between a peony and a pansy gave me the necessary credentials to run a high-tech irrigation system. “What shall we do?” “Righty tighty!” I babbled, adding a few other short phrases un-

der my breath best not repeated here. Let’s just say they weren’t from my think box or off a Post-it on my wall and leave it at that. Water sprayed in every direction at once while I frantically tried to thread the knob back onto the spout. Several minutes and a great deal of water later the knob was back in place. “What you might want to do,” I said later, as we stood gasping and dripping all over the sidewalk, “is to only turn the knob a little to the left. That appears to be important. To help you remember just think “a little lefty loosey.” Would you like me to write that down for you?” Shannon McKinnon is a humour columnist from Northern BC.

Over the years I have accumulated a lot of life lessons and words of wisdom. Whenever I come across a phrase or tidbit that causes my inner being to sit up and smile I cut it out or jot it down and tuck it away in my think box. Or sometimes I put it on a Post it and thumb it to the wall behind my computer screen. Stuck to my wall right now are the words, “To change everything, simply change your attitude.” Why is that we are always looking to the outside to find happiness for our insides? That never works. Oh, maybe briefly at best, but it never packs the sort of inner peace that lasts. I believe happiness is more a state of mind than a state of circumstance. And when I forget, I have my Post-it right there on the wall to remind me. Some words of wisdom I use so often I don’t need to write them down. Such is the case with this little gem: righty tighty, lefty loosey. I have always believed that no one should unleash themselves onto the unsuspecting world without it. It simply means if A5

(This article is adapted with permission from a devotional presented recently to the Christian Leaders Network by Jim Tanis, a leader with the Cariboo Community Church.) Yes, contrary to what many Christians may think, Jesus enjoyed a good party. Jesus attended a wide variety of parties and celebrations with participants from all classes of society from the elite to the outcasts. Jesus, however, did not attend parties only for entertainment. Jesus loved people and he attended these gatherings to fellowship and to help hurting people. Jesus mingled with people, made friends and as needs arose he would bring physical, emotional and spiritual healing. The Bible writer Luke describes one of these parties, a banquet given in Jesus honor by his friend Levi. Jesus and his disciples joined with Levi and his friends at Levis’ house. Levi and his friends were not regular church goers and they were considered by the religious leaders as the worst of society. Because Jesus attended this party, his religious devotion was seriously questioned. The religious elites compared Jesus disciples with the disciples of John the Baptist who regularly fasted and prayed while Jesus boys were eating and drinking with sinners. Jesus response was


BY CAMERON JOHNSTON interesting.He suggested that new wine needed to be put in new wineskins. Jesus was an innovator and he was not afraid of change. He knew that change was needed and he even used the parties of his friends to do things differently. He had come to this world to take God to the people and bring healing. He said that it is not the healthy who need a doctor but those who are sick and he had come to seek and save the lost. He took himself and his message to the people where they gathered and did not wait for them to come to him. He met them where they were comfortable at their community gatherings and parties. Jesus’ life focus was ministry to hurting people. He was and is the Saviour of the world. This is who Jesus was and is. As such, he could

go to Levi’s party, not to preach, not to judge, not to condemn but to be a friend and when the time was right he would minister to their needs and eventually invite them to follow him. He established relationships that led to redemption. Jesus loved and was comfortable with people at all levels of society. What was truly remarkable was that people from all levels of society were very comfortable with him, especially the outcasts and hurting. Maybe Christians today need to follow the example of Jesus and move beyond religious activities and find ways to connect with people where they gather. Like Jesus we can go with purpose and be the salt and light of God’s grace to a modern generation. A gifted evangelist once said, “It is impossible to be an effective witness for Jesus and avoid the appearance of evil.� We, like Jesus, need to meet people where they are. Doctors are not afraid of the illnesses of their patients. They bring healing. As Jesus followers, like good doctors, we may need to make some house calls. Many people first met Jesus at a party not in the church. There are many party opportunities here in the Cariboo. If you are a Christ follower, talk to Jesus and find out where he is working around you. He will invite you to join him in his work and he may even send you to a party, that otherwise you might not attend.

Rough seas ahead for BC Ferries B

C Ferries has begun its summer schedule, ramping up sailings for the vacation season that is crucial to the fleet’s bottom line. It’s been rough sailing for BC Ferries so far this year. The corporation released its financial results in June, reporting a net loss of $16.5 million, compared to net earnings of $3.8 million the previous year. Last year’s earnings were boosted by the sale of the former corporate headquarters for $9.3 million, preventing a loss there as well. In the fiscal year that ended March 31, vehicle traffic was down 3.5 per cent and walkon passengers were down 2.8 per cent. As a result, BC Ferries is forecasting a “small loss” for this year as well. The spring “Coast Saver” sale has just ended. That’s a 37-per-cent discount offered Fridays through Mondays, May 25 to June 25 on the major runs from the mainland to Victoria and Nanaimo. The discounts allowed a foot passenger to cross for $9.95 and a car and driver for $39.95. I asked BC Ferries CEO Mike Corrigan last week how the sale went. He didn’t have final figures yet, but he allowed that the boost in traffic was “marginal.” It’s the second year that the spring sale has been offered over weekends, when people are more likely to travel. But instead of generating ad-


ditional trips, Corrigan said the main effect has been to shift traffic from midweek to weekends. One of the primary reasons for this spring’s poor performance is the lousy weather that kept people at home. Gasoline at $1.40 a litre is another big one. Hotels and other tourism services tell the same story. Here’s another problem: student traffic on the ferries was down by a third this spring, because teachers cancelled field trips as part of their lengthy work-to-rule campaign. The simplistic political debate about ferry service starts and ends with rising fares, with occasional fits of temper over executive salaries, and ignores the other factors. Just cut the fares and increase the taxpayer subsidy, say the NDP and their local echo chambers. Of course, taxpayers are already pitching in an extra $80 million this year, bring-

ing the subsidy to the ferries close to $200 million. That’s how Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom sweetened the pot as he unveiled new powers for B.C. Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee to set service levels as well as regulate fares. Macatee’s task now is to travel the coast and endure the demands of island dwellers who want the rest of us to subsidize their splendid isolation.

The proposition for them will boil down to this: You can pay more or you can have fewer sailings. And where the boat is a third full, you will have fewer sailings. This consultation period is an opportunity to ask some hard questions. For instance, does Saltspring Island really need three ferry terminals? And why is there no passenger-only service? Macatee’s term as commissioner started with a de-

tailed review last year that pointed to some other ways to save serious money. But CEO Corrigan says there are no quick fixes. FortisBC has offered an  $11 million incentive for conversion of marine vessels to natural gas, which would give the fleet significant relief from spiraling fuel costs. But a ferry conversion would take six months or more, and another vessel would be needed in the

meantime. Another promising suggestion is overhauling the ferry reservation service, making reservations free and charging extra for those who just show up. Corrigan says a computer reservation overhaul is underway, but it will take three years. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

what to do. Mary Forbes is seeing the fulfillment of a few special dreams this week with the opening of the summer show Community Roots: Inspirations from the Potato House Project at the Station House Gallery Wednesday evening inspired by the Potato House Sustainability Project which she was a driving force in founding; the staging of the Potato Dreams play on the Potato House lawn following the gallery opening, and the birth of her daughter Phaedra Louise Mayette. Here Forbes introduces the six-day-old infant with husband Pierre Mayette during the opening of the gallery show. She introduced the show and talked a bit about the Potato House Sustainability Society and thanked everyone for their support. About 60 people turned out for the Potato Dreams play inspired and directed by Debra McNie. Gaeil Farrar photo

Arts on the Fly next weekend Five Alarm Funk, Fish and Bird, Linda McRae and many more artists will be performing at the Arts on the Fly music and dance festival in Horsefly July 13-14. “Horsefly, B.C.’s incredibly popular summertime festival, Arts on the Fly, is going full steam ahead with its seventh annual festival,” says Pharis Romero. Friday night opens at 6:30 p.m. with a special opening ceremony featuring local elders, cowboy poetry and special programming followed by Jesse LeBourdais and Drum & Bell Tower, all-girl roots-rock act Jungal, the Vancouverbased LunaSea Circus Troupe, roots/folk award-winners Fish and Bird, and local rockers Big Twang Daddy. Saturday opens at 11 a.m. with local bluegrass-folk ensemble Jenny’s Jam, then youth band Calling April, the high school duet of Sam & Rowan, the intricate sounds of the harp-cello duo Crossbow, local singer-songwriter Colin Easthope, and Horseflybased lady of folk and blues Marin Patenaude. The evening show features Spirit of the West member and country crooner Linda McRae, the eclectic jazz-roots

of Danielle Savage, outlaw country singer Joey Only, and the Little Horsefly Country Band. The last two acts of the evening will keep the crowd up and dancing; Tim Readman and the Eire Born Irish Dancers and the 10-piece funk powerhouse of Vancouver’s Five Alarm Funk. Both days will showcase “tweener” acts primarily by local and regional youth. Saturday will also feature an all-acoustic stage with performances by Pharis & Jason Romero, Fish and Bird, Doug Koyama, Crossbow, Christian Hoelderl, and Troy Forcier. Festival goers can take part in workshops — laughter yoga, vocal improvisation, and Irish dancing, wander through the vendors market, enjoy a delicious meal. Kids’ Zone will run most of Saturday, with workshops where kids can make a ukulele with local expert luthiers, or didgeridoo to take home, among many other arts and crafts. Advance tickets are available at in Horsefly at Clarke’s General Store, or in Williams Lake at the Bean Counter and the Gecko Tree.

She will talk about the impact of trauma on the brain development and behaviour of children and youth.
