Investigators comb through plane crash site Investigators have started removing the wreckage of a small plane that crashed into rugged terrain near Brenda Mines on Monday, leaving one person dead and three others clinging to life. The Piper PA30 Twin Comanche was en route to Boundary Bay from Penticton Monday afternoon, when it plunged into the wooded area just off the Okanagan Connector, 30 kilometres west of Kelowna. Just after 3 p.m. the impact set off an emergency beacon that a WestJet plane picked up and relayed to the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Victoria. A Buffalo search and rescue plane homed in on it at around 5 p.m., said Rod Braun of the Central Okanagan Search and Rescue, and that’s when it became clear that a rescue effort was necessary and ground crews pushed through the difficult terrain to assist. Passenger Jayson Dallas Wesley Smith, 30, of South Surrey, was found dead at the site. But three others, including the pilot, made it through an impact that was intense enough to bend the small plane in half. It’s been reported that at least one survivor

was able to speak to rescue workers as they approached, but all were in critical condition. “A man and a woman were airlifted to Kelowna General Hospital and a second woman was airlifted to Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital last night from the crash site,” said Const. Kris Clark of the Kelowna RCMP. The woman who was initially transported to Kelowna, was later moved to Vancouver as her health declined. No further information about her, or the others’ condition was available as of Wednesday afternoon. If they recover, however, the Transportation Safety Board investigators want to talk to them to see if their recollections clarify why the small plane smashed into the mountainside. To that end, two investigators had already started cataloguing everything at the crash site by Tuesday afternoon, and their efforts were expected to continue throughout the week. “They’ve related to me they’re dealing with a complete wreckage, but there was no fire,” said Bill Yearwood, of the TSB. “At least we don’t have to deal with that.” That means they should have a better chance at figuring out why it crashed—some-

thing that’s been a challenge with the investigation into a floatplane crash that killed three in the same area four months earlier. While Yearwood wouldn’t speculate if the Brenda Mines area was particularly treacherous for pilots, he did say that would be a focus of the investigation. “The mountainous region is challenging for pilots, but the particular challenges in that area are not documented or specific. It is going to be part of our investigation to see if there are any similarities to this accident scenario and the one from May,” he said. “If we determine anything that’s an immediate threat to aviation, the safety board will issue an immediate warning.” The air quality may also have been a problem for the pilot. “I was flying (Monday) at the time, and we too had hazy conditions,” said Yearwood. “I don’t know what (air quality was) in Kelowna at the time, but our investigators will get as much information as we can.” Anyone who was on the highway or may have seen the plane are encouraged to call into the TSB and offer their recollections, as it may assist with the investigation.

A PLANE CRASH MONDAY near Peachland happened almost two years to the day since a similar tragedy that also originated in Penticton and resulted in a massive search and rescue effort and just a few months after a float plane went down in the same area.

NEXUS to ease airport waits Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Just flashing a NEXUS ID card at Kelowna’s airport will give flyers a chance to skip the queue and feel like VIPs. NEXUS checkpoints—a joint Canada Border Services Agency/ U.S. Customs and Border Protection program that expedites the border clearance process for preapproved, low-risk travellers—were launched at medium sized airports like

Kelowna’s this week. “This keeps YLW among Canada’s leading travel spots,” said Kelowna’s mayor Walter Gray. It’s a notable distinction for the airport, he explained, considering that Kelowna is the 22nd largest travel market, but the airport is the ninth (or 10th depending on the month) busiest in the country. Kelowna Lake Country MP Ron Cannan explained NEXUS is a benefit to frequent flyers, and

something he’s wished for in the past, when he’s been stalled in lines and watching others zip through at a rapid pace. While local flyers will be able to use the NEXUS checkpoint once they get the card, they won’t be able to get the card locally. Applications papers can be picked from the web, but it’s a rigorous process to get approval that includes a retina scan and being interviewed by CATSA members at a

These screening procedures will enable the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority to reduce wait times for travellers by using practices already established in Canada’s larger airports.

NEWS ▼ CONSERVATION OFFICERS

Oil dumping investigated Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

If you have seen a truck around West Kelowna with a box that’s dripping with used engine oil, conservation officers would like to hear from you. Ed Seitz, a local conservation officer said about 50 gallons of dirty, black, used engine oil was dumped over the bank up Smith Creek Road in West Kelowna either Monday night or in the early hours of Tuesday morning, along with plastic totes, barrels and used engine oil filters. The grasses and wild plants are coated with the oil, the ground is saturated with it, and there’s a trail of the black oil leading from the site down to Elliott Road, along Reece Road toward Old Okanagan Highway and along there towards Shannon Lake Road, said Seitz.

“It looks like the guy just backed up to the ravine and let the whole pallet full of stuff fly out of the back of his truck,” commented Seitz. However, he believes the lids on the plastic totes must have popped off on the way up, allowing the dirty oil to slop out and drip off the back of the truck. A similar incident occurred in the Smith Creek Road area in March when someone dumped a variety of auto parts and oily waste alongside the road, noted Seitz. Although that suspect was never found, it was reported by some businesses that a fellow was collecting the junk for disposal. He was described as in his early 40s and he drove a light blue, beat-up, late 1980s or early 1990s Ford F150 pickup with a regular single cab, a short box and an exhaust leak.

It’s possible this may be the same person, said Seitz. If any business has had someone haul away used oil or filters, the CO service would like to talk to them. Call the tips line toll-free at: 1-877-9527277 if you have any information that could be helpful. Some of the oil filters were very large such as might fit a large diesel engine and as well there were two or three 15-gallon black rubber tubs, a blue tote, a blue bucket, a couple of five-gallon pails, two large yellow fuel filters and a white one, some four-litre jugs and a blue wooden pallet. Used engine oil can be recycled without charge at many local automotive shops, Seitz said. Dumping such waste in the bush is an offence under the provincial environmental management act and is liable to fines of

City demands design change before flying right to life flag Kelowna city hall has once again proclaimed the last week of September as Protect Human Life Week in the city. And this year, it has also agreed to fly a pro-life flag over City Hall during the week. But approval for the flag flying was withheld until changes were made to the flag’s original design, say Kelowna Right To Life officials. According to the group, the original flag had the statement “From

Conception to Natural Death” printed on it. But that was rejected by City Hall because it did not meet the city’s requirement that such flags reflect the actual event and because it was felt to advocate a point of view. Kelowna Right to Life agreed to remove the statement from the flag and city officials have agreed to fly it during Protect Human Life Week. The proclamation for the week reads in part: “It is the intention of this

Human Rights Tribunal in the late 1990s when he was mayor and arbitrarily changed the wording of a requested Gay Pride Day proclamation, banned city proclamations for the rest of his time in office. But his successor, Sharon Shepherd reintroduced

them when she was elected in 2005. Gray has carried on the practice since returning to the mayor’s office last November. Shepherd proclaimed the first right to life week in Kelowna four years ago. KRTL executive director Marlon Bartram said his group is grateful to the city and the mayor for accommodating its proclamation and flag-flying requests. “At a time when prolife groups on Canadian

college campuses are routinely censored and prolife initiatives get very little positive exposure in the news media, it is certainly refreshing to have our mayor’s office recognize our efforts on such a consistent basis.” He said Kelowna City Hall’s continuing proclamation of Protect Human Life Week shows the rest of the country that Kelowna truly is an “inclusive place that respects the many diverse communities comprising our great

STAFF REPORTER

Tammy Arishenkoff is nearing a grim anniversary she’s been keeping for decades, and the end of a personal journey she’s been on for months. August 23 will mark 30 years since six members of the Johnson-Bentley family were murdered and one month until Ari-

shenkoff will read her victim impact statement at their killer’s parole hearing. “It’s going to be unpleasant,” she said of going to the hearing for David William Ennis, or as he was previously known, David Shearing. “I’ve been looking at his picture trying to get ready.” Delving into the dark

memories of that time and facing Ennis is daunting, she said, but she felt compelled to take on the task for a number of reasons. For one, she feels like it’s her responsibility to speak for her murdered childhood friends Janet and Karen Johnson, even if it means facing down the man who killed them. Arishenkoff also wants to support their sur-

viving family members, who have been forced to face down Ennis and relive their pain whenever a parole hearing is held. “Or maybe it’s because I just remember the devastation of 1982,” she said. “It’s a moment frozen in time that none of us connected will ever forget. This man is evil and I want my friend and her family

to have some peace. We can’t forget.” At 53, Ennis has been in jail for more than half his life, yet, according to his parole records, said Arishenkoff, he hasn’t taken any meaningful efforts to facilitate his rehabilitation in nearly 20 years. Knowing that he’s See Ennis A6

Challenging firefighters’ efforts was the design of the building. Roelofs said it made the fire difficult to locate and firefighters were faced with zero visibility and extreme temperatures while searching for the main fire area. \ “Once the fire was located in the kitchen area of the café, it was quickly

brought under control, but hot spots kept the crews busy for over an hour,” he said. Although the fire was contained to the one business, there was smoke damage to two adjacent businesses. A fire investigator has been requested to determine the cause. Preliminary damage estimate is in excess of $150,000.

Plane crash victim remembered as someone who ‘lived life to fullest’ Dan Ferguson CONTRIBUTOR

Dallas Smith was remembered as a loyal friend who lived life to its fullest at an informal memorial Tuesday night in White Rock for the

30-year-old man who died in Monday’s plane crash near Brenda Mines, west of Peachland. Smith, a White Rock native, was one of four people aboard the Piper PA 30 Piper Twin Comanche when it went down.

The B.C. Coroner’s Office said Smith was pronounced dead at the scene and the three other occupants of the plane were airlifted to Kelowna General Hospital and Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital.

As of Wednesday, all three were listed in critical condition. “It still doesn’t feel real,” Smith’s long-time friend Tim Proznick said following the Tuesday night get-together. “Any second, you’d expect Dallas to make an entrance.” Proznick met Smith at Semiahmoo Secondary, and they kept in touch. Proznick, a professional musician, said he could almost always count on seeing his friend in the audience at his concerts. Smith was part of a close-knit group of friends from the White Rock and South Surrey area, some of them dating back totheir time together elementary school. Another longtime friend, Alexis Bennett, called them “the boys,”

now young men, who all moved to Vancouver about the same time after leaving school. The “very good looking” Smith was genuinely charming, Bennett said. One of his best friend’s mothers nicknamed the 5’11” Smith “her little George Clooney” for his resemblance to the movie star. When they were kids, Bennett said, she talked Smith into being her boyfriend, briefly, then decided they were better off staying friends. And they did. Years later, they were platonic roommates for about a year, and never lost touch, she said. Even after moving to Vancouver, Bennett said Smith would make regular trips back to the White Roack area to reconnect

The motto on Smith’s Facebook page is a quote: “everybody dies, but not everybody lives.” “He was adventurous,” Bennett said. “He did more than most people do in a lifetime. I’m just happy that he got to do as much as he did.” “He definitely lived his life to the fullest,” Proznick said. Smith’s girlfriend, a White Rock resident, had bought him flying lessons as a present, but it’s not clear if the flight he was on was part of the package she purchased.

NEWS â–ź SWEETHEART

Trail blazing local cherry nets itself a top award Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

A locally-created cherry that has turned around the cherry industry in the Okanagan has been awarded the outstanding fruit cultivar award for 2012 by the American Society for Horticultural Science. The Sweetheart cherry, bred at the federal Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland, matures later in the

season and is self-fertilizing, so fruit sets even during cooler spring weather when bee activity can be hampered. Lengthening the cherry season has helped rejuvenate the cherry industry, by expanding the months that fresh cherries are available to send to market and diversifying in order that inclement weather doesn’t affect all varieties. The later season allows the industry to tap

into new markets, later in the season, when conventional varieties have disappeared from the shelves. Sweetheart was nominated by Denise Neilsen, a research scientist at PARC and a member of the ASHS, who noted that they ripen about 10 days after Lapin cherries and a week before Staccato. The three varieties have helped to revive the industry in B.C., she said. All are products of the cherry breeding program at PARC. “The sweet cherry industry has been a bright spot in the horticultural sector in B.C. and worldwide,� she commented. In the 1990s, cherry exports only accounted for $500,000 in sales, but in 1999, that increased to

work was continued by Frank Kappel who retired last year and the work is being continued now by Cheryl Hampson, who also heads up the apple breeding program. Richard MacDonald was the technician for the program and has also now retired. Orchardists who tested the variety included Kelowna-area orchardists Hugh Dendy and David Geen, as well as Kyle Mathison and Garfield Marshall. Christine Dendy, president of the Okanagan Kootenay Cherry Growers Association noted the research centre’s efforts put B.C. cherries, as well as international cherry production, into a new realm of production of later varieties.

The award is ironic, she added, considering the federal government’s lack of interest in continuing to fund research and to support research centres such as PARC. In announcing the award, federal agriculture minister Gerry Ritz said, “Our government is proud to support internationally-recognized research and innovation in cherry breeding. “Such cultivars have allowed growers to gain a top-notch reputation in the world marketplace as producers of high-quality crops. “This boost to the cherry industry has helped stimulate and diversify job creation, benefiting our overall economy.� jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

more than $1 million, and by 2005, it had increased almost 15-fold, she said. The cherry industry’s exports accounted for nearly $40 million in Canadian agricultural exports in 2011. The variety has become an important international cultivar, planted extensively around the world. Even in neighbouring Washington State it has become the second most important cultivar, next to the Bing. Officially released in 1994, the Sweetheart cherry is also the parent of several other new cultivars, including Staccato, Sentennial and Sovereign. All were part of the breeding program when research scientist David Lane headed it up. His

young enough to kill again, said Arishenkoff, is he should stay behind bars and the response she’s had from the community supports her point of view. In just a couple of months, a petition drive rounded up 8,000 signatures, locally. “I don’t have any idea what’s been submitted (to the parole board) from other locations from

around the country,� she said. Dozens of victim impact letters were also submitted. “The community effort has really restored my faith in humankind,� she said. And that knowledge is what will fuel her when she has to read aloud how Ennis changed her life and community all those years ago. The Johnson-Bentley families didn’t return

from their camping vacation in the Clearwater area of B.C., late August, 1982. Two weeks later their scorched remains were found inside the Johnsons’ burned-out car, which was hidden in a thickly wooded area. Police launched a massive investigation, pursuing thousands of tips and in late October 1983, forestry workers happened upon the Bentley’s truck and camper not far from

the murder scene. Further investigation led to Shearing, whose 1984 confession described how he stalked the family in the 24 hours before the murder. He claimed to kill the four adults as they sat around the campfire the following night and told investigators he shot the two children moments later. In fact, the girls were kept alive and sexually tortured for some time.

Police seek ‘violent’ man

The RCMP is warning the public not to approach a wanted man they believe to be in the Okanagan as he is considered violent. Const. Lesley Smith, media relations officer, said Jared Heath Agar had his parole suspended on July 19 and a warrant for his arrest has been issued. The RCMP have attempted to locate the 30-year-old man and believe he is in the Okanagan area. Agar has a criminal history which includes robbery with violence, assault with a weapon, other property related offences, breach of conditions, drug related convictions and fraud. RCMP said he is known to use multiple aliases. He is described as caucasian, six feet tall, 181 pounds, brown hair and hazel eyes. Agar has a tattoo of the initials M.V on his right hand, a Chinese symbol and name on his right forearm and a heart and guns on his chest. Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Agar is asked to contact the RCMP and not to approach him as he may become violent. If anyone has information on the man and would like to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

FLOYD VEDAN, far left, was injured at a house party and Kelowna’s musical

community has stepped up to offer its support as he recovers from a head injury.

â–ź FUNDRAISER

Music community steps up to help one of its own Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Every summer the word “communityâ€? seems to be on the tip of peoples’ tongues, as art shows and neighbourhood barbecues and events like the Downtown Kelowna Association’s Block Party fill the streets with happy Okanganites. But if there’s a true test of community spirit, it’s in peoples’ willingness to lend a hand in times of need. And this summer, one Kelowna musician is in need of just such a boost. Floyd Vedan, of the Floyd Vedan band, was assaulted three weeks ago at a house party after playing a gig. He remains in hospital with a serious head injury that will take months, possibly years of recovery time. “As soon as I found out that he had been hurt and he was in hospital, it was like: what can I do?â€? said Jane Eamon, Kelowna singer/songwriter. â€œâ€Ś He takes the time to really connect with everybody he comes in contact with and he knows a lot of people.â€? Eamon wasn’t alone

with her offer. While the musical community may not be one with copious funds to spare, it’s plenty strong on talent and heart and the offers to make use of both soon littered a Facebook page for Vedan. Now just starting to get day passes to leave the hospital, Vedan’s good friend, Jimmy LeGuilloux says the burly frontman knows it could be six months to a year before he’s capable of returning to work as he once did and he has a girlfriend and children depending on him to make a full recovery. “Floyd’s been here since the ‘80s,� said LeGuilloux. “He’s pretty much a staple of the Kelowna music scene and we need him.� As such, local musicians Brad Krauza (also the publisher of Gonzo Magazine), LeGuilloux (a longtime rocker), Paul Sexsmith (playing with The Hip Replacements) and music producer and Interior Music Awards organizer Mark Greenhalgh stepped up to connect the people who know and love him on a concert venture designed to provide financial support.

“We went for recording acts, names that will draw people in, so none of us (organizers) are even playing,� said LeGuilloux. As such, Floydfest at the Kelowna Community Theatre will feature: Darby Mills, lead singer for the Headpins; new hipster band Fields of Green; a reunion of Ten2Nine; Leah West; Just About Janice (a Janis Joplin tribute); Jane Eamon and Gord Brush; Gary Turlock and Theresa Bishop. There is also to be a surprise guest the organizers are refusing to reveal. Rose’s Waterfront Pub is sponsoring the event and will host an open mic jam session beginning at 11 p.m. after the show. Put on by the Floyd Vedan Band, the after party is open to any local act that wants to contribute and the group is looking for silent auction items. To donate an item to the silent auction, please call 250-215-5777. Floydfest is by donation and will be held Sept. 6 at the Kelowna Community Theatre, doors opening at 6 p.m.

Bronze is the new gold in Canada

S

ometimes, it seems that bronze is worth as much as gold. Such is certainly the case for the Canada’s Olympic women’s soccer team, whose inspirational win came, not in the hoped-for gold medal game, but in the final bronze round. The bronze medal they came away with is Canada’s first Summer Games medal in a traditional team sport since the 1936 Berlin Games, when the men’s basketball team won silver. These women sum up all that is best about athletic competition—spirit. This team refused to give up, not after

a humiliating last place finish at the World Cup last year, and not after a heartbreaking 4-3 loss in extra time against the U.S. in the semifinals Monday. The team was clearly crushed after the loss, but by Friday had put that aside as they headed into a game against the highly-favoured French team. Again, another grueling game, but the squad hung on for a scoreless 90 minutes. Then, two minutes into extra time Diana Matheson drove in the winning goal, and put their team into the record books and Canadian soccer on the international map. But the goal did more than that. In Can-

ada, where sports revolve around hockey, many are surprised to find that more people play soccer than the national sport. And it is for the upcoming players that the women’s soccer bronze medal win may have its most lasting effect. All those young players have not only an example of where the sport might take them—to the very highest levels of competition—but an example of competitive spirit to show them that it is possible to make a dream reality.

Itching for a new cold war to take shape in the Arctic Gwynne Dyer CONTRIBUTOR

Russian television contacted me recently asking me to go on a program about the race for Arctic resources. The ice is melting fast, and it was all the usual stuff about how there will be big strategic conflicts over the seabed resources—especially oil and gas—that become accessible when it’s gone. The media always love conflict, and now that the Cold War is long gone, there’s no other potential military confrontation between the great powers to worry about. Governments around the Arctic Ocean are beefing up their armed forces for the coming

struggle, so where are the flash-points and what are the strategies? It’s great fun to speculate about possible wars. In the end I didn’t do the interview because the Skype didn’t work, so I didn’t get the chance to rain on their parade. But here’s what I would have said to the Russians if my server hadn’t gone down at the wrong time. There are three separate “resources” in the Arctic. On the surface, there are the sea lanes that are opening up to commercial traffic along the northern coasts of Russia and Canada. Under the seabed, there are potential oil and gas deposits that can be drilled once the ice retreats. And in the water in between, there is the planet’s last unfished ocean.

The sea lanes are mainly a Canadian obsession, because the government believes that the North-West Passage that weaves between Canada’s Arctic islands will become a major commercial artery when the ice is gone. Practically every summer Prime Minister Stephen Harper travels north to declare his determination to defend Canada’s Arctic sovereignty from—well, it’s not clear from exactly whom, but it’s a great photo-op. Canada is getting new Arctic patrol vessels and building a deep-water naval port and Arctic warfare training centre in the region, but it’s all much ado about nothing. The Arctic Ocean will increasingly be used as a shortcut between the North Atlantic and the

North Pacific, but the shipping will not go through Canadian waters. Russia’s “Northern Sea Route” will get the traffic, because it’s already open and much safer to navigate. Then there’s the hydrocarbon deposits under the Arctic seabed, which the U.S. Geological Survey has forecast may contain almost one-fourth of the world’s remaining oil and gas resources. But from a military point of view, there’s only a problem if there is some disagreement about the seabed boundaries. There are only four areas where the boundaries are disputed. Two are between Canada and its eastern and western neighbours in Alaska and Greenland, but there is zero likelihood

of a war between Canada and the United States or Denmark (which is responsible for Greenland’s defence). In the Bering Strait, there is a treaty defining the seabed boundary between the United States and Russia, signed in the dying days of the Soviet Union, but the Russian Duma has refused to ratify it. However, the legal j uncertainty caused by the dispute is likelier to deter future investment in drilling there than to lead to war. And then there was the seabed boundary dispute between Norway and Russia in the Barents Sea, which led Norway to double the size of its

Enbridge OK says former pipeline worker

To the editor: By now most readers must know that people who are against pipelines know nothing about what they are talking about or writing about. Did they ever work for a pipeline? Did they ever sail on a cruise ship making sharp turns on the inside passage? Maybe. Have they ever been a crew member on a merchant freighter passing through Maracaibo Lake in Venezuela and pass by the many epumps pumping the oil to shore-based batteries? I was on a Dutch merchant freighter and never saw any oil leaks. I worked for 14 years for South Saskatchewan Pipeline (SSPL): The first year as an oiler to increase my knowledge of the English language, the second year as a pump station operator. During that time I never heard of any oil spills anywhere. Our crude oil went from Cantuar in southswest Saskatchewan to Moose Jaw and then to Regina where it was taken over by Interprovincial Pipeline. The oil was heated and the pressure increased because of the cooling of

it in the pipeline. A small plane checked for leaks several times a week between Cantuar and Regina. I am one of many people who knows anything about the feeling and smell of crude oil. My job as an oiler was checking two, 80,000 barrel tanks and the quality of oil by checking for the amount of sediment and water in it. While I was busy at my job, I was interrupted by the newly appointed foreman who told me to take large nuts off bolts which held the flange down on the packing of the plunger pump as the packing had to be renewed. When I got the nuts off the bolts I was suddenly blown off the six-foot high pump by a blast of 1,200 lb pressure crude oil—soaked from top to bottom with crude oil. Luckily I did not hurt myself when I landed on the floor which had been beautifully shiny before this happened. The oil blew all over and made a terrible mess. The foreman simply forgot to close the valve to the mainline and also did not drain the pump itself. When I was given an order by the chief en-

gineer when I was a merchant marine engineer I never asked questions, simply because he was my boss. This time I made a big mistake by not asking questions. (The foreman asked his superior to fire him but they gave him another chance to do his job.) When I was hired by SSPL I was the only one of 10 people who worked at the pump station who had worked before with large diesel engines on the ship. I had sailed on other ships which had steam and triple expansion engines. Now Enbridge is building a pipeline through a totally different landscape than the prairies, yet even though it is a more difficult terrain I am not against it. The company explains that it will have much better monitoring than when I worked for SSPL which means many more places where pressures and flow of the crude oil are measured—not to forget one or more times a day being flown over by planes or helicopters. Also hiring the most qualified employees to do the job of regulating pumping equipment. T. Pyper, Kelowna

Comments from the Web on dangers of marijuana COM MMEN MM ENTTS S FFROM RO ROM COMMENTS kelownacapnews.com

To the editor: Re: We’d be Crazy to Legalize Marijuana, Aug. 7 Capital News. Just another case of a brainwashed individual tying two or more unrelated issues together. What does legalization of marijuana have to do with not being intoxicated at work? Alcohol (and yes even glue) are legal, yet dangerous, if consumed at work. Legalize marijuana? Yes please. The benefits you ask? Nerve protector, anti-convulsive, anti-psychotic, cancer killer, natural non-addictive pain relief, the cannabinoids attach to the cannabinoid receptors in our bodies which form the very basis of our immune systems, etc.

Know what else is full of cannabinoids? Mothers’ milk which is said to be the healthiest thing we can put in our children’s bodies. Speaking of tying unrelated issues together, don’t even get me started on hemp ,which is so very heavily regulated even though the cannabinoid “CBD� is a natural high blocker making it impossible for any user to ever get high yet has over 50,000 industrial/medicinal uses. A proper hemp-based industry would spark (pardon the pun) a new industrial revolution creating a plethora of jobs while working in concert with our beautiful environment. These jobs (and profit) would have the added benefit of staying in the localized economies allowing the money to be re-spent rather than the extraction of ressources/ riches that is happening now. The author subtly touched on “intelligence� in his letter. Well, intelligence is defined as the abil-

ity to acquire knowledge and skills. The problem lies when one is bombarded with the wrong information. I would be more than happy to debate the author, or anyone else for that matter, that shares his archaic, absurd, and yes harmful views anytime. It is said knowledge is power, but I prefer to think that wisdom is. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit, while wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad. Eduardo Sanchez Nearly all the harms you mention are also true of alcohol. Should we make that illegal as well? Oh, wait. We tried that decades ago and it caused more problems than it solved, just like marijuana does now. If your crane operator had been drunk at the time, would you have blamed it on the alcohol or the idiot that was drinking on the job?

Why would they keep trying prohibition if it has never worked even once? Albert Einstein would refer them to be insane, trying the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results. Randy Meloche

Judie Steeves lowed the pair, and everyone watched as the trio crossed the back yard and began pulling at the green leaves on some bushes at the edge of the property. The antlers were still smothered in the soft velvety fuzz that covers them each spring as the bony antlers grow in, even though it was past midsummer. Luckily my friend wasn’t growing any prize roses on the bank above his patio, because those boys would have made short work of all the buds and the tips of the branches, just as they shredded the bushes they found instead. I had to laugh the other morning when I headed out for a walk at first light and glanced into my neighbour’s yard. There was a doe seated very comfortably, dozing—right in the middle of the green lawn. And the morning before, I’d nearly walked right into one on the side

of the road before I realized she was there. She was unperturbed by my presence and just turned into a neighbour’s yard. In none of these instances were the deer spooked by the appearance or the voices of humans. That’s in sharp contrast to the behaviour of deer you spot when you’re out in the woods hiking along a path or trail. The quick flick of a tail is usually all you see of those ones as they hightail it in the opposite direction to where you’re heading, usually into thick cover. And, the two are like different animals: one is wild and easily startled by any small sound you make and the other has become habituated to humans and is at home in human neighbourhoods. It’s when wildlife stops being wild that human conflicts begin occurring. A couple of months ago does with very young fawns were acting very aggressively in a number of parts of this region, charging people and beating up dogs, but on the whole, the biggest complaint about deer is the feasting they do on people’s gardens.

JUDIE STEEVES/CAPITAL NEWS

THIS NEIGHBOURHOOD mule deer doe is so confused she thinks this planter of flowers right at the front door is her feed trough. Contrary to most years, this year I haven’t been seeing many deer in my garden, though I have seen both does with twin fawns and single does in gardens around mine, so I’m wondering whether the deer repellent I’m trying is actually working. Bobbex Deer Repellant is apparently an allnatural tropical plant repellent that will not wash

off in the next rain or irrigation cycle. At the urging of the manufacturer I agreed to try it out and see if it made any difference to the agonizing losses I’ve sustained over the years to my optimistically-planted flowers and vegetables. I must admit it smells pretty foul when you first spray it on, but after a day or two my sniffer is not

sensitive enough to be bothered by it. I used it on plants that have traditionally been very attractive to my neighbourhood deer, and they do seem to be doing much better this summer than usual. In particular, I used it at their normal entry points to my yard and I simply haven’t seen them in the yard nearly as much as usual.

It’s available at Ace Hardware in Peachland, Westwind and Byland’s in West Kelowna, Art Knapp, the Greenery and Elysium in Kelowna. Now if I could only catch whatever’s eaten every last one of my kale plants! Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

BUSINESS ▼ EDUCATION

Okanagan College appoints its first director of learning and teaching The first dean of the Okanagan School of Business, and one of Okanagan College’s longestserving employees, is now taking on the newly created role of director of learning and teaching. Jayne Brooks has spent the last year in an interim role developing the position, which includes providing leadership for the college’s Institute for Learning and Teaching. “Through her long association with the college, Dr. Brooks has developed a thorough understanding and appreciation of the college’s objectives,” said Andrew Hay, vicepresident of education. “This position further establishes the college’s commitment to providing the best learning experien-

ces and highest program quality standards using the most progressive and proven techniques available today,” Hay added. “It’s essential that the college have someone in this position to provide the required leadership and I’m confident Dr. Brooks will fill that role admirably.” Brooks said the new position allows her to use her wide-range of skills and experience in academia in a new way that she hopes will further the college’s reputation as a place where students feel comfortable, supported, and positively challenged in their education, and where all employees feel equipped to handle the challenges and opportunities within their positions.

“Research has proven that quality instruction has a lot more to do with building relationships within the classroom and getting students engaged than it has to do with topdown delivery or material,” Brooks said. “Learner-centred instruction is our focus and our aim is to enhance learning and teaching methods at Okanagan College to help students and employees reach their goals.” Brooks is an alumna of the college’s business administration program and served on the program advisory committee after graduation. She spent 20 years in the classroom teaching before becoming dean of the Okanagan School of

Business, a position she held for 10 years. Brooks has an MBA from McMaster University, a doctorate in education from the University of Texas, Austin, as well as MEd in college administrative leadership from Simon Fraser University. In addition, she is a certified management accountant. Brooks has received numerous awards, including being the first recipient of the OUC Distinguished Alumni Award, and the YWCA’s Women of Distinction Award for Career Leadership. She is also the recipient of the Kelowna and District Arts Council’s Honour in the Arts Award for outstanding contributions to the advancement of the arts here.

▼ LEADERSHIP

Building credibility and trust when becoming entrepreneurial

W

hen you break the definition of an entrepreneur into its key elements, what you get are four operatives—innovator, organizer, manager and risk taker. It is these basic elements that make a good business venture a great one. However, those are precisely the factors that will stunt growth if they’re not checked on from time to time and kept relevant in the context of future growth. A good entrepreneur,

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young the literature tells us, is also a builder of trust. You simply can’t do all of the other things an entrepreneur is supposed to do if you can’t get others to trust you. Trust begins with credibility. Admittedly, it isn’t

easy these days being an entrepreneurial leader. With trust, credibility and confidence levels dropping rapidly among employees, leaders face an uphill task in rallying staff, conveying messages and moving forward toward the organizations goals. The usual gripes I hear in the Okanagan is that leaders don’t show up, are not putting value on communication, aren’t straightforward, don’t listen and don’t take feedback seriously from their personnel.

Establishing credibility amongst personnel, investors and the external world is just as important when dealing with individuals and organizations external to the entrepreneurial venture. In a recent survey about entrepreneurial leadership, leaders didn’t fare well on questions dealing with ethics and a willingness to admit mistakes. Although it is definitely true that a lack of ethics and an unwillingness to admit error can adversely affect internal operations

of any entrepreneurial venture, they can also be devastating when an entrepreneur goes looking for investment capital. Surveys continue to report that trust among CEOs and leaders appears to be eroding. People tend to believe so-called experts and people like them instead of leaders. For example, it is not enough in these trying times for leaders to make decisions among themselves. Employees are seeking inclusion and transparent decision-making methodologies.

Employees don’t seem to be convinced if their leaders are only visionaries and strategists. They expect them to gain their trust and walk the walk. Building leadership credibility is also about being available and wearing multiple hats for the variety of scenarios that exist within any venture. Good communication skills are absolutely essential to increasing credibility. So make communication your mantra. Often, communication is the last resort when it

comes to reviewing flagging morale or addressing a crisis. Employees not only expect to get clarity on a host of topics such as revenue and growth but they also want to know what their leaders are doing about attrition, engagement and social and fiscal responsibility. Their interest clearly is about the honest, transparent practices within their organization, how the organization treats its people, how leaders listen

BUSINESS ▼ OMREB

House sales in the Okanagan appear to be rebounding The Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board says sales activity in July improved in all areas over the same month last year. And, it says, the local housing market is maintaining stability and steady growth moving into the third quarter of the year. “Things are continuing to look up in the Okanagan-Shuswap,” said Rob Shaw, OMREB’s president. “Housing sales have strengthened during the

past four months, with the typical leveling off of activity in July as summer vacations began and thoughts turned to camping, and boating.” He added the Central Okanagan carried the rise in sales for the month, with overall units sold up 13 per cent from the same month last year, while sales for the North Okanagan are on par with 2011. Listings and sales were slightly down in the

Shuswap compared to last July. “Single family residential sales were strongest in the Central Okanagan in July, with a 40 per cent jump over 2011. Apartment and townhouse sales continued to improve in the Shuswap and North Okanagan. The North Okanagan reported a 37.5 per cent increase in apartment sales last month, while townhouse sales were up 16.7 per cent from last year.

In the Shuswap, eight apartments were sold in July compared to none in 2011 and townhouse sales rose 25per cent. Year-to-date, total residential sales have improved over last year throughout the area, up 10 per cent in the North Okanagan, nine per cent in the Central Okanagan and six per cent in the Shuswap area. “The outlook is generally positive in our board area as the market con-

tinues to stabilize,” Shaw said. “Inventory is still a bit high but coming down with the ongoing sales fuelled by pent-up demand and growing consumer confidence.” While new listings have leveled off during the past two months, the selection is still there for buyers, he added. Record low interest rates are expected to continue to underpin home sales.

However, the recent tightening of mortgage rules may affect affordability, especially for firsttime buyers and consumers with less than 20 per cent equity in their homes. With the dynamics in the Okanagan, there are up and down fluctuations in each OMREB zone monthly depending on the community, housing type and price point, said Shaw. “Now, more than ever, it is important for anyone

thinking of buying or selling to ask their realtor how their property type is currently faring in the overall market and, more significantly, in their particular neighbourhood.” He said working with a real estate professional to understand the current local market conditions and to provide comparisons specific to your area is essential for sellers as home values vary based on the type and the location.

Leaders need to be trusted by their customers and employees Young from A16 and engage with relevant stakeholders. Also, be available. At great workplaces leaders are approachable via chat shows, email and face-toface sessions. You need to have your voice. Your employees appreciate hierarchy but are open to seeing it as a structure for better governance. As a leader, you

are expected to communicate to those you find yourself in front of. So be focused on the future and articulate opinion and vision. Align your managers to solve problems directly and be prepared to be scrutinized and treated as equals: Research shows middle managers in an entrepreneurial venture are key to the success of any in-

itiative or organizational goal. Getting managers to walk the floors is the most effective way to engage and gain trust. While an annual engagement survey will give you a sense of how the morale of your venture is, it also helps to keep a regular tab via direct feedback mechanisms and face to face connections. Being a “ hands-on leader” is seldom a chal-

lenge for an early stage entrepreneur. It becomes a greater challenge as the venture grows. As an entrepreneur, you need to help make the transition go smoothly by empowering the management team of your enterprise at every opportunity. With information freely available and the speed at which it travels, organizations need to understand that entrepreneur-

ial leaders can no longer be exempt from public scrutiny. What they do at work and outside will always be questioned and monitored, even if it has no direct relevance to the venture’s prime business model, be it in their neighbourhoods, the supermarkets they use, the clubs they visit and the schools their children attend. Trust is magic in

everything we do in life not just as entrepreneurs but as citizens of the world.

to the snowfield in Mount Hood, Oregon for training. “I go to Okanagan College this time of year because it’s the only time I’m free from training and racing, so it works well with my schedule,” she said. “I came back from four weeks of dry land training in Whistler to take my finals, and I wouldn’t be able to do that if it wasn’t for the college.” Serwa, who turns 23 in September, has taken classes in anatomy, physiology, English and psychology, all in preparation for a degree in physiotherapy. “I like the smaller classes because you don’t feel intimidated asking questions,” she said. “The teachers give you the guidance you need, but you’re really working independently. And I think there’s more of a relationship between the students as well. We’re all willing to help each other.” Serwa works hard on the slopes, and equally hard on the books. Entering into exams,

WHAT I ALSO LIKE ABOUT SCHOOL IS THAT IT KEEPS YOUR BRAIN WORKING IN A DIFFERENT WAY. Kelsey Serwa

Serwa said she’s one of the few members of her team who not only put time into her sports career, but also into her studies. “You can’t be an athlete forever,” said Serwa,

noting her body is still recovering from the knee injury she sustained last January when she crashed during a World Cup race in the Alpe d’Huez resort in France. “What I also like about school is that it keeps your brain working in a different way. Competing at a world class level requires great mental abilities, but when I’m in school, I’m developing a different kind of skill,” she said, adding her parents always reminded her that no matter what, school came first, sports second. Now with her finals all done, Serwa can focus her attention on the upcoming season, which includes plans to defend her FIS Freestyle World Ski Championship title in Myrkdalen, Norway in February. “No matter whether it’s school or sport, people are always more motivated to learn what they want to learn, and it makes a real difference to be in a place where instructors are helpful, the setting is beautiful, and students are willing to share.”

▼ ASSAULT

Cops seek witnesses

The RCMP are still seeking the assistance of anyone who may have witnessed an assault in downtown Kelowna on the long weekend. On Aug. 6 at 1:20 a.m., while conducting vehicle patrols in the downtown core, an RCMP member was waved down and advised of an assault that had just occurred on the corner of Bernard Avenue and Ellis Street. Apparently two men had been assaulted by a larger group, with at least one of the victims suffering serious non-life threatening injuries. Both men were taken to the hospital for medical treatment. Witness reports indicated there were five to six men involved in the assault, which appeared to be unprovoked. The suspects are described as all about 25 to 30 years of age with large builds in the range of 240 pounds. One man was seen wearing a white tank top. Police have spoken with a number of witnesses but are seeking further information in an attempt to identify suspects. Anyone with any information regarding this crime is asked to call Kelowna RCMP Const. McQuade, at 250-762-3300.

SPORTS Krause ready for NCAA step this fall Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Singing the anthem with her teammates following Canada’s gold medal victory this year at the world under-18 women’s hockey championship understandably ranks as one of the highlights of Jordan Krause’s hockey career. Earning a scholarship at an NCAA Division 1 university also gets a huge thumbs-up from the 17-year-old Kelowna product. Krause arrived at the University MinnesotaDuluth this week where she’ll pursue an education while playing with the Bulldogs women’s hockey program. Krause, who plays defense, chose UMD over two other serious contenders, Ohio State and Cornell. “It wasn’t any one thing that made me choose (Duluth), everything just kind of clicked for me,” said Krause, who paid a visit to UMD in October. “It felt comfortable, I liked the other girls, and I could really see myself

playing four years there. There are players from all over the world I’m going to be playing with, it’s a very international team, so that’s nice, too.” It didn’t hurt either that UMD has one of the most successful women’s programs in NCAA history having won five nationals titles, the last one coming in 2010. “I think we’re going to have some pretty high goals set, and we’re going to be after another national title. There’s a big group of freshman on this year’s team, so there will be a new energy there. It’s going to be pretty exciting.” Krause came up through Kelowna’s minor hockey system, then played the 2009-10 season with the B.C. Female Midget AAA League’s Thompson Okanagan Rockets. The last two years, she played for Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence program. For Krause, the transition to university hockey in the U.S. will be a challenging, yet exciting step. “I’m looking forward to being in an NCAA league, to be able play at

KELOWNA’S Jordan Krause (left) kisses the championship trophy along with Canadian and POE teammate Halli Krzyaniak at the world under 18 women’s hockey championship in January in the Czech Republic. Krause will attend the University of Minnesota-Duluth this fall. that level, and to have the opportunity to play games every weekend that really mean something,” said Krause. “At POE we played pretty much all tournament games, so this will be very different. It’s going to be exciting to play in the NCAA environment.”

Over the last two seasons, POE coach David Roy said Krause’s game took some significant steps forward, and he has little doubt she will be ready to make the jump to the highest level of collegiate hockey in the U.S. “(Jordan) has a great work ethic, she was one

of the leaders on our team, and she has tremendous passion for the game,” said Roy, who also attended UMD. “As a D-man with us, she continued to get better. She’s smart, very composed and didn’t get rattled easily. That helped her get on to Team Can-

ada and it will no doubt help her at UMD.” As is the case for so many elite athletes, Krause’s successes in her sport haven’t come without sacrifices and a lot of hard work, including hundreds of hours training in the gym. Moments like Can-

ada’s gold medal win at the world under-18 championship in the Czech Republic last January make it all worthwhile for Krause. “I think working hard and all the time you put into it makes it just that much sweeter when you do have success,” said Krause, who hopes to get future opportunities with Hockey Canada. “When we heard our anthem and started belting it out together, you really just forget about all the sprints, the early mornings and the workouts that go into it. I still love playing.” At University Minnesota-Duluth, Krause will work on a major in Bio Chemistry, with plans to pursue a degree in dentistry. Krause is one of several local female minor hockey products who this year earned scholarships. Other Kelowna players heading south to the NCAA include Julia McKinnon (Ohio State) and Brittany Berisoff (Connecticut), while Stephanie Schaupemeyer will play in the CIS with the UBC Thunderbirds.

Allen in town for Okanagan Sun annual club dinner A Canadian Football League legend will be in town for the Okanagan Sun’s 2012 Dinner. Four-time Grey Cup winner Damon Allen will be the keynote speaker for the third annual fund-raising event Oct. 11 at the Coast Capri Hotel. Allen was recently elected into the CFL Hall of Fame after playing 22 seasons with six different teams—the Edmon-

ton Eskimos (twice), Ottawa Rough Riders, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Memphis Mad Dogs, B.C. Lions and Toronto Argonauts. He currently sits second in all time throwing with 72,381 yards and is third in all time rushing the ball, collecting 11,920 yards. The San Diego native played 370 games, completed 5,158 passes and threw 394 touchdowns.

WATCH FOR OUR

Damon Allen He also rushed for 93

touchdowns on 1,766 carries. Allen retired on May 28, 2008 and is currently working on a number of different projects including acting as the Argos special advisor to CEO Mike ‘Pinball’ Clemons. Dinner chairman Les Weiss said Allen is a good choice to deliver the keynote address. “Obviously with a quarterback you have a

guy who was a leader throughout his career, so he’ll no doubt have a lot of interesting things to say,” said Weiss. “I think he’ll be a great speaker.” Corporate sponsors JDS Mining and Scotiabank provide funds each year to the Sun’s scholarship program. Between donations and the dinner itself, close to $50,000 was raised last year, with the majority go-

ing towards scholarships and the remainder for the club’s operating expenses. The scholarship program is designed to assist Okanagan Sun players in furthering their educations at a post-secondary level, whether at UBC Okanagan, Okanagan College or trade schools. Last season, 17 players on the Sun received financial assistance while attending post-secondary

institutions. The 2012 Sun Dinner will feature a live auction for two tickets each to the Cotton Bowl, Sugar Bowl and U.S. Open Golf Championship. Tickets are $150 each or $1,200 for a table of eight. For tickets or more information on the Sun Dinner, send an email to les@ chemtecwest.com, or call 250-859-5603.

Raiders second in ▼ BASEBALL B.C. men’s lacrosse A’s duo impresses with Team B.C. Warren Henderson

The Kelowna Raiders put up a fight but had to settle for the silver medal at the B.C. Lacrosse senior C box lacrosse championship in Port Coquitlam. Named in honour of former Raiders player Dave Bannister, the provincial tournament was part of a dual championship featuring a total of nine teams from B.C. and Alberta. After beating the Alberta champs from Calgary 9-6 in their opener on Friday, the Raiders followed up with a 9-6 loss to the Coquitlam Cobras. On Saturday, Kelowna

dropped two tough games to the Ladner Pioneers 1210 and 10-6. Ladner, a bigger and faster squad, burned the Raiders with their fastbreaking style. The Port Moody Express won both the provincial and tournament gold medals. On the basis of goals for and against, the Raiders ended up with the silver provincial medal, with the bronze going to Prince George. The Raiders won the Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League title last month, their sixth senior C men’s valley title in the last seven years.

Just days after helping the Okanagan Athletics win a provincial baseball title, Dawson Yates and Morgan Lofstrom didn’t look the least bit out of place playing on the national stage. In fact, the A’s teammates both thrived as members of B.C.’s U17 team at the Canada Cup from Aug. 8 to 12 in London, Ont. Over the course of nine games at the national tournament, Yates batted .414 with 12 hits, including two home runs, three doubles, eight runs and 13 RBIs. Yates’ defining moment of the week came in B.C.’s semifinal win over Quebec when he hit a grand slam, clearing the 390-foot centre field fence by a good 40 feet. “(Dawson) was pretty stoked about it,” said his dad, Gary Yates, the A’s manager who made the trip to London. “He’s been waiting for his power to

come alive and it finally did.” Yates, 17, played first base for Team B.C. throughout the 10-province event. Lofstrom batted .286, scored five runs and had a pair of RBIs. The Mt. Boucherie student also caught the last six games for Team B.C. “Morgan went into the tournament potentially as the backup catcher, but then by the fourth game he took over the starting job and never looked back,” Yates said. “He had a really good tournament.” Team B.C. made it as far as the final on Sunday at the Canada Cup before losing to Ontario 9-8. The Canada Cup is an annual tournament staged by Baseball Canada to identify future prospects for the national junior program. The top players will be invited to join the Canadian junior team for a training camp in Orlando, Fla., in October. The Canada Cup is

sevens that will be introduced at the 2016 Brazil Olympics. He says the games are each different from one another. “The position I play in rugby union is on the wing. Because the game is more structured than league, I don’t get my hands on the ball as often. I enjoy the pace of rugby sevens as well. They are all great games to play.� Locals can see Canadian player Jared Curry at 3 p.m. on Saturday,

Connor McGowan used home-pitch advantage to become the new Canadian junior (under 19) lawn bowling champion. The 17-year-old from Kelowna rolled his way to the national title at the Canadian Junior Bowls Championships this week at the Kelowna Lawn Bowling Club at City Park. McGowan, a threetime B.C. Under 19s champion who placed sixth in the nationals in 2011, took the title before an enthusiastic hometown crowd at the local bowling green. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Connor played really well, especially in the later stages,â&#x20AC;? says Alan Stirling, the event organizer and McGowanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of hard work and practice has paid off. The goal now is to do the same next year in Prince Edward Island.â&#x20AC;? McGowan made it through the round-robin against Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest with a record of four wins and two losses before hitting the semi-finals where he faced Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant Wilkie, the reigning junior champion. That game went to a nail-biting tiebreaker with

some amazing shots by both players, with McGowan coming out on top to move on to the final. Wilkie was fourth when the competition was over. McGowan, who is going into Grade 12 at Okanagan Mission Secondary School, handily defeated Cameron Lefresne of Nova Scotia in the final, going 9-1 in the first set and 7-2 in the second. Lefresne took the silver. The girls champion (Under 19s) was Stirling Wood of Ontario, who defeated B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Priscilla Westlake of Tsawwassen by close scores of 6-4 and 6-5 to take the silver. Lucas Caldwell and Nicole Leblanc, both of Ontario, took the boys and girls bronze medals respectively. From an organizational perspective, Stirling is pleased with the way the event came off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The championships have been a huge success,â&#x20AC;? said Stirling, who is also the KLBC vicepresident, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This tournament has put Kelowna on the lawn bowling map, not only with Connor winning the gold, but also showing the KLBC is more than capable of holding such a prestigious event.â&#x20AC;?

NEWS ▼ SOUTH OKANAGAN

Government remains mum on why Osoyoos jail site picked Joe Fries CONTRIBUTOR

Three sites at either end of the Okanagan Valley were short-listed as potential homes for a new jail, but the deciding factors remain locked up in secrecy. The B.C. government eventually settled on a plot in a new business park outside Oliver that’s owned by the Osoyoos Indian Band. Premier Christy Clark made the

announcement there in February, and the 360-cell provincial remand centre is expected to open in 2016. Two of the seven sites offered by the Village of Lumby also made the top three, but pitches from the District of Summerland and the Penticton Indian Band did not, according to government documents, and it’s unclear what set those proposals apart from each other or the eventual winner.

The evaluation matrix was severed from records about the decision process obtained by the Penticton Western News through a freedom of information request. The matrix was attached to a December 2011 briefing note to the Minister of Justice and it is therefore considered a matter of cabinet confidence. “For a government that says it’s going to be open and transparent…it’s been like pulling teeth trying

to get information,” said B.C. NDP public safety critic Kathy Corrigan. In a statement sent by email, the provincial government’s communications branch said only that “key considerations included project costs, zoning, environmental impacts, accessibility to major transportation routes and the projected completion date.” The short-list of potential sites was included in a package sent to the NDP

in response to its own FOI request about the jail, which the party shared with the Western News. Brian Titus, who heads the Osoyoos Indian Band Development Corporation, did not address his winning bid’s merits in an email response to a request for comment. Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino was told by the province that the selection boiled down to infrastructure, and the unserviced plot of Crown

land put forward by her community just didn’t have any. She wasn’t surprised to learn her bid didn’t make the top three: “We knew ours was a stretch.” The FOI documents also indicate the cost of the facility is expected to be higher than the number that was made public. A government press release issued the day of the premier’s announcement referenced the jail’s “estimated construction cost of approximately $200 million.” However, a briefing note sent to the Treasury Board in November 2011 estimated the construction cost at $214 million, and the total capital cost, including items like furniture and equipment, at $273.5 million. And because the B.C. government expects to spend over $50 million on the project, the note said, “a public-private partnership is being considered as the base case.” It goes on to peg the prison’s annual operating cost at $60 million. Titus, from the OIB-

DC, said the project is expected to go to tender in the fall, and construction is projected to begin in 2014. On the issue of public acceptance, the November 2011 briefing note also mentioned that local governments in the Okanagan had been petitioning for the jail, which presented a “rare opportunity.” “Gaining local government and community acceptance in the Lower Mainland could take years,” the note continued. Public input on the proposed jail was sought by local governments in each of the communities that put forward bids. In Penticton, a June 2011 referendum found jail opponents outnumbered supporters by a two-toone margin, and the city then withdrew from the process. The FOI documents also detail an alarming need for a new jail in B.C., because, at present, the “safety of public, staff and inmates is at risk.” Penticton Western News

▼ NORTH OKANAGAN

Sunset ceremony to mark end of summer training at cadet camp Residents and visitors in the North Okanagan will be treated to an evening of military pomp and circumstance tonight. Standing tall on Dieppe Square, marching to the music of the combined bands, honouring the best among them, more than 600 Army Cadets from western Canada will bring the 64th summer of training at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre to an end tonight. Relatives, friends, and visitors are invited to watch the pomp and ceremony of the final parade and Sunset Ceremony, which begins at 6 pm, with a demonstration of precision rifle drill by cadets in the drill and ceremonial course. Following the drill demonstration, the centre’s school of music cadets will play a series of selections. Parade markers will be called at 6:30 p.m, the cadets will march on to the parade square at 6:35 p.m. and the reviewing officer will arrive at 7 p.m. Reviewing the final

parade will be Col. David Anderson, brigade commander for 1 Brigade Group Land Forces Western Area. Included in the evening’s activities will be an inspection of the cadets on parade, the march past, the presentation of awards and an address to the cadets by Anderson. Assisting him in the inspection will be three officers who have earned lifetime achievement awards from the Cadet Instructor Cadre: Lt-Col. Terry Kopan, a former commanding officer at VACSTC, Capt. John Hunger and Maj. Reg Tweten, the officer commanding Charlie Training Group this summer. The Sunset Ceremony will include the firing of the Feu de Joie, a series of blank rounds, the playing of Amazing Grace, which is highlighted by a lone piper on the backdrop, the sounding of Retreat, the playing of O Canada and God Save the Queen and the lowering of the national flag.

Three Saanich police detectives and a forensic technician were in Penticton this week conducting an external investigation into the death of a

30-year-old man who died in police cells. Steven Joseph Scott was arrested in Penticton Aug. 9 and remanded by a justice of the peace. He

was found dead in his cell the following morning. “When we do an external investigation, we’re focusing on the manner of the death, and any caus-

al factors that may have led to his death,” said Det. Sgt. Chris Horsley, one of the four officers sent to Penticton. “That includes the movements

of the deceased prior to coming into contact with the RCMP.…In this case we’d want to know what people he’d come into contact with, what he was

doing, was there anything that happened prior to him being arrested by RCMP that may have been a causal factor in his death.” The B.C. Coroners

Service conducted an autopsy on Monday. “We’ll await the outcome of the autopsy to determine if there’s a (conclusive) cause of death; however, we will certainly be awaiting toxicology reports from the lab, which can take some time to process,” Horsley said. Because the death happened while Scott was in police custody, all his movements and interactions since his arrested were caught on film. “Our mandate here is to conduct an external investigation to determine if there’s any criminality involved in the manner of death,” Horsley added. Scott, of no fixed address, was initially arrested as a result of a disturbance call and a refusal to leave a Penticton residence. An RCMP policy relating to police-involved incidents that result in injury or death requires that an external investigation be conducted by an outside police department. The costs are paid for by the RCMP. South Okanagan RCMP are under investigation for a number of recent incidents. A complaint was lodged in June of an alleged in-custody assault by a Penticton RCMP officer. New Westminster police are investigating the incident that allegedly occurred during an arrest last August. The officer is currently on administrative duties until the investigation is completed. Delta police are investigating Princeton RCMP after an incident where they attempted to pull over a speeding driver that led to a police chase. The man was later found deceased in his vehicle in an apparent suicide. A man accused of domestic assault in Osoyoos tried evading RCMP which ended in a deadly fiery crash on Highway 3 in June. Witnesses said they saw the vehicle drive through a police blockade then go down an embankment and flip before bursting into flames. Abbotsford police are investigating. In January an inquest took place into the death of Gordon Amyotte who collapsed while Penticton RCMP officers were walking him to a police vehicle in May 2010. A jury determined he died of methamphetamine consumed before RCMP took him into custody. Penticton Western News with files from Kristi Patton.

Crews snuffing out hot spots in grass fire south of Vernon Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS STAFF

Aggressive action continues to be taken on the Bella Vista grass fire south of Vernon. As of 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15, the 36.3-hectare blaze near The Rise neighbourhood was 70 per cent contained. “Crews are diligently working to get it 100 per cent contained this afternoon,” said Jack Blair, a Vernon deputy fire chief. Ministry of Forests personnel have been digging guards to ensure the fire doesn’t spread if there is a flare-up again. The fire broke out just after 3 p.m. Tuesday. Fire crews were getting the better of the blaze, before afternoon winds picked up and fanned the flames. Residents from two homes were forced to evacuate. “The neighbours were here and they grabbed everything important—

pictures, passports,” said Sharon Ertl, who just moved to Vernon from Red Deer, Alta. Ertl and the occupants of the other residence were allowed to return home by 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. “I kept waking up to see hot spots. But the guys were all out there so I knew we were safe,” said Ertl. A thermal scan will be conducted Thursday morning to determine where further hot spots can be found. “It could be as late as a week before it (a hot spot) pops up,” said Blair. “We will be monitoring this for the next week or two weeks.” A cause for the fire has still not been determined, and Blair would not speculate on whether an abandoned cigarette may be responsible. “It’s still under investigation at this time,” he said.

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ AT THE CIRCUS

Jump rope never looked so good Skipping taken to its artistic heights in new Cirque du Soleil show. Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Cirque du Soleil is jumping to get to Kelowna. Previewing their show Quidam, coming here next week, the Cirque troupe sent along Adrienn Banhegyi to introduce its jumprope-themed storyline and show off the impressive things one can do with a little rope. From the beaded variety to cotton lariats one might find in a climbing store, the skipping protégé who solos in the show certainly knows the ropes of performance—in more ways than one. This performance marks a lifetime of hard work and dedication to a craft her father found for her by fluke. “I started about 20 years ago at the idea of my dad because he saw a movie and they were do-

ing Double Dutch in it and he thought it would be worth a try,” said Banhegyi. Initially, he picked up the ropes for the girls in his boarding school classes, but as Banhegyi followed along and improved, father and daughter soon found themselves in Hungary at the International Rope Skipping Federation researching competition and a possible role on the world stage for Banhegyi. She would go on to win the IRSF World Championships three times and the IRSF European Championships five times before finding a more playful role. “About six or seven years ago, I made the decision in my jump rope career that instead of competing, I wanted to try doing more performance,” she said. Enter Cirque du Soleil and the Quidam production. Quidam is about young Zoé, a bored little girl whose distracted parents are ignoring her enough she decides she

Adrienn Banhegyi must find meaning in life through the imaginary world of Quidam. Inside this world she is greeted by all manner of characters—20 of whom had to learn jump rope skills like Banbegyi to fill out her solos—and launches on an emotional journey culminating in a reunion with parents and finding happiness in family. Banhegyi’s life sounds somewhat similar, for she certainly enjoys a fairy tale lifestyle in which she meets an abundance of interesting characters. After competing in jump rope internationally, she sent an audition tape

to Cirque and was taken into a world where talented people intermingle every day, sharing their eccentric gifts. After the performances are through, members of the troupe offer circus skill classes where a skipper, like Banhegyi, can try her hand at any of the other acts. Her favourite at the moment is a Spanish Web which uses a lot of upper-body climbing strength she ordinarily wouldn’t exercise. “We learn from each other and it’s fun because you get different workouts,” said Banhegyi. “And then you wake up very sore the next day.” Cirque du Soleil will perform Quidam in Kelowna from Aug. 22 to 26 at Prospera Place for eight performances. Tickets are available at www.cirquedusoleil.com/ quidam or by calling 250762-5050. The production includes 52 acrobats, musicians and singers, including a live orchestral accompaniment capable of matching the performers timing perfectly.

ParaNorman

Nothing better than a two-movie weekend

Davis from B3

THE BOURNE LEGACY

ity of this kind of overthe-top action movie and play it up. This is definitely a movie you have to check out in the Xtreme auditorium at the Landmark Cinemas 8 in West Kelowna. From the makers of the wonderfully imaginative Coraline comes ParaNorman, a stop motion animated adventure that might be scary for younger children, but will be a visual delight for older kids (and the young at heart). It is the story of Norman, a misunderstood local boy who is able to speak to the dead. When the small town he lives in comes under siege by zombies, only he has the ability to prevent the destruction of his town by a centuries-old witch’s curse. And zombies aren’t his only problem: He will also have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst of all, grown-ups which will push his paranormal powers to their limits. It is

co-directed by Sam Fell (Flushed Away, The Tale of Despereaux) and features the voices of Casey Affleck, Leslie Mann, John Goodman and Tempest Bledsoe. Again, it may be scary for the younger children but for the ones who loved either A Nightmare Before Christmas or Coraline, this is a definite must-see. Paramount Theatre is opening two acclaimed movies this week. Safety Not Guaranteed is a quirky comedy about three magazine employees who head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel. The Intouchables is a French language film about an aristocratic risktaker who becomes quadriplegic from a paragliding accident and hires a young man from the projects to be his caretaker.

This has been one of those circumstances where I have enjoyed far more the books, rather than the movies and this latest in the Bourne franchise is no exception. The beginning of the film is very confusing with the show jumping around the world from Virginia, Washington, Alaska, London, New York, Korea, Chicago and Pakistan with seemingly neither rhyme nor reason. There is also less action and more talking in this one than one might have hoped for, with the exception of the very long motorcycle chase. In an attempt to “burn the program to the ground,” OUTCOME tries to eliminate all agents. Yes, there was more than just Jason Bourne. With actors Jeremy Renner playing Aaron Cross (we really don’t miss Matt Damon), Scott Glen as Ezra Kramer, Stacy Keach as Retired Admiral Mark Tursco, Edward Norton as Retired Col. Eric Byer and Rachael Weisz as Dr. Marta Shearing, the cast did a great job at believability and seamlessness, but there was something missing—perhaps an element of surprise and drama.

BEHIND THE SCREEN

Susan Steen One quote I liked was: “Are you going to kill me or give me a pep talk?” (Teenagers everywhere might relate to this one.) This may be worth seeing despite its oddly unsatisfactory ending, but it won’t be the summer blockbuster that we might expect. Here are my top five things to do if you’re a fugitive from the law (in any country). 5. Cut and dye your hair 4. Invest in a wig of an another colour 3. Don’t look directly at a security camera 2. Don’t trust anyone. And the number 1 no-no: Don’t get involved with a guy with a gun in the first place (that might eliminate numbers 2 through 5) I give it three reels.

HYSTERIA I also saw Hysteria (it’s a good weekend

when I see two movies). This has got to be one of the most quirky shows you’ll see in a while, and I’m not sure what age group this will entertain. Hysteria is the catchword for the sexually frustrated ladies of the 1880s. My mother would not have been amused, but then she was British. My father, of Irish ancestry, would have found this funny, so who knows. Taking place in London when doctoring consisted of leeching and a variety of Dr. Feelgood type pills, the opportunity arises for a young

physician to make a living from the treatment of ‘hysterical’ women. There is also the opportunity to revolutionize that very treatment. This is not a show you’ll be talking about for years to come, but it is worthy of your time if you’re fairly broad minded and can find humour in the mindless and inane (which, frankly, I can) so it was a fun movie for me. Best line: “I will regret this to the end of my days.” The handsome Hugh Dancy plays Dr. Mortimer Granville, Maggie

Gyllenhaas as Charlotte Dalrymple as always is superb, and other major cast members Johnathan Pryce, Dr. Roberet Dalrymple and Felicity Jones, Emily Dalrymple were right on point. Again, it’s not what you might think it is, so go with an open mind and, oh yes, relax. It gets 2 1/2 reels.

NEWS â&#x2013;ź ENVIRONMENT

People are getting sick of manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environmental destruction

P

reventing illness is the best way to get health-care costs

down. So why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t governments doing more to protect the environment? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve long known that environmental factors contribute to disease, especially contamination of air, water, and soil. Scientists are now learning the connection is stronger than we realized. New research shows that 60 per cent of emerging infectious diseases affecting humans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those that rapidly increase in incidence or geographic range â&#x20AC;&#x201C; start with animals, two thirds from wild animals. Lyme disease, West Nile virus, ebola, SARS, AIDSâ&#x20AC;Śthese are just a few of the hundreds of epidemics that have spread from animals to people.

SCIENCE MATTERS

David Suzuki A study by the International Livestock Research Institute concludes that more than two-million people a year are killed by diseases that originated with wild and domestic animals. Many more become ill. According to an article in the New York Times, â&#x20AC;&#x153;emerging diseases have quadrupled in the last half-century.â&#x20AC;? The increase is mainly due to human encroachment into and destruction of wildlife habitat. For example, one study concluded that a

four per cent increase in Amazon deforestation led to a 50 per cent increase in malaria because mosquitoes, which transmit the disease, thrive in the cleared areas. Another example from the article shows how interconnected life is. Development in North America has destroyed or fragmented forests and chased many predators away. This has led to a huge increase in white-footed mice, which carry Lyme bacteria. The mice are not good at removing ticks and their larvae and so the ticks pick up bacteria from the mice and spread it to other mammals, including humans. Because the number of Lyme-infected ticks has multiplied, more are transferring the disease to humans.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we do things in an ecosystem that erode biodiversity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we chop forests into bits or replace habitat with agricultural fields â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we tend to get rid of species that serve a protective role,â&#x20AC;? Lyme disease researcher Richard Ostfeld told the New York Times, adding that our actions tend to favour species that act as disease carriers. Global warming is adding to the problem. A study in the journal Nature, Impact of Regional Climate Change On Human Health, notes that heart attacks and respiratory illness due to heat waves, altered transmission of infectious diseases, and malnutrition from crop failures can all be linked to a warming planet. And economic and political upheaval brought on by climate change can

damage public health infrastructure, making it difficult for people to cope with the inevitable rise in sickness, according to a study in the Archives of Medical Research, Global Warming And Infectious Disease. Research has also shown that warming ocean waters are increasing the incidence of waterborne illnesses, including those caused by toxic bacteria in shellfish. This is costly to the economy as well as to human health and survival. The World Bank estimates that a severe influenza pandemic could cost the world economy $3 trillion. Environment Canada says air pollution alone costs the Canadian economy billions of dollars a year because of increased health-care costs, missed work days, and reduced

productivity. A key solution, according to the One Health Initiative, is to look at the links between human, animal, and ecological health and to manage our activities in a sustainable and holistic way. The U.S.-based initiative is bringing experts in human, animal, and environmental health together to study these links. Another promising area of research is natural capital evaluation. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult, if not impossible, to put a dollar value on the numerous services nature provides, leaving them out of economic calculations means they are often ignored. Forests and green spaces filter water and store carbon. Urban green spaces provide cooling and protection from storms.

And, ecosystems in balance help to protect us from disease outbreaks. Destroying these systems and replacing them with human-built infrastructure or paying for the consequences often costs much more than profits gained from exploitation. With the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human population now at seven billion and growing, and the demand for technology and modern conveniences increasing, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control all our negative impacts. But we have to find better ways to live within the limits nature and its cycles impose. Our physical health and survival, and the health of our economies, depend on it. David Suzuki is a scientist and broadcaster based in Vancouver.

â&#x2013;ź GUEST COLUMN

Provincial health officer urges people to get flu shots this year Dr. Perry Kendall CONTRIBUTOR

As summer vacations come to an end, and we begin to look forward to the fall, it is a good time to start thinking about how to best protect ourselves and our loved ones from illnesses like influenza. The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that between 2,000 and 8,000 Canadians die every year from influenza and its complications. British Columbia provides the flu shot for free each year to those considered at higher risk of developing influenza complications, or those who care for them. That list includes: â&#x20AC;˘ People over age 65 and their caregivers â&#x20AC;˘ Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts â&#x20AC;˘ Health-care workers â&#x20AC;˘ Emergency responders â&#x20AC;˘ Healthy children aged six months-five years â&#x20AC;˘ Household contacts and caregivers of children aged zero-five years â&#x20AC;˘ Pregnant women who will be in their third trimester during the influenza season â&#x20AC;˘ Residents of nursing homes and other chroniccare facilities â&#x20AC;˘ Aboriginal peoples â&#x20AC;˘ People who are very obese (those with a body mass index of 40 or

more). Even if you are not considered a person of high risk, if you regularly interact with or work around someone who is, I strongly encourage you to get vaccinated for their sake. High-risk populations can suffer severe consequences from influenza, including death. Bacterial pneumonia, an infection of the lungs, is the most common complication from influenza, especially in elderly people. It can also lead to more complications for people who have heart, lung or other health conditions. For these reasons, it is especially import-

ant that health-care workers get their flu shot each year, and I would like to acknowledge and thank those health-care workers who do get vaccinated. As a physician myself, I know how important it is to protect patients. All of the major professional health care bodies, such as the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia, support vaccination of health-care workers. Unfortunately, each year throughout B.C., fewer than 50 per cent of health-care workers get immunized against influenza. This rate is too low â&#x20AC;&#x201D;patients deserve better. Some jurisdictions in the United States have man-

aged to achieve 95 per cent coverage of healthcare workers. There is significant evidence in longterm care facilities that high health-care worker influenza vaccine coverage results in diminished illness and fewer deaths. Getting the flu shot should be considered standard patient safety practice for all health-care workers who come into contact with patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as important as following effective hand hygiene practices, staying home when ill or wearing a mask in the operating room. I would like to briefly address the concerns that some people have about the vaccine, as each year

Hemochromatosis presentations coming to Kelowna, West Kelowna

▼ AUDIT

Wade Paterson

An audit of how well forest and range practices are protecting water in two community watersheds in the Okanagan has found mixed results. While forestry operations are complying with requirements to protect water quality, range operations are not. “Our auditors found low risk to water quality, quantity or timing of flow from current forest practices,” said board chair Al Gorley. “Sediment was well managed on forestry roads and harvesting practices

STAFF REPORTER

If you type “how to get enough” into Google’s search box, the fourth predictive option will guess you’re trying to find out “how to get enough iron.” It’s likely because iron plays an important role in the body; too little of it and you could become anemic. But according to the non-profit Canadian Hemochromatosis Society, too much of it isn’t a good thing either. According to Frank Berto, event coordinator for CHS, Hemochromatosis—better known as HHC or iron overload—is the most common genetic disorder affecting Canadians. “Iron overload is an inherited disorder that causes the body to absorb two to three times the normal amount of iron,” said Berto. “That iron goes in and it builds up in vital organs, joints and tissues. It can kill you.” Ross Gilley, past president of the CHS, knows the dangers of HHC first-hand.

His father was diagnosed with liver cancer 10 years ago despite not being a heavy drinker. Gilley went online to research causes of liver cancer when he stumbled across HHC. After seeing some of the symptoms, the realization set in that he too might be a victim of iron overload. “The good news is I was diagnosed at age 48, so I still got the chance to live a decent life,” said Gilley. At the height of his battle with HHC, the former president of the CHS gave blood weekly for two years in order to get his iron levels to normal. “Those weren’t the best two years of my life, but you come out of it.” Now Gilley is only required to give blood every 56 days to keep his iron at a normal level. That blood also has a second use as it is donated to Canadian Blood Services. He said those diagnosed with HHC will often have family members that are also affected by the disorder—his brother and sister were diagnosed shortly after him.

Although hemochromatosis affects one in 300 people of mostly northern European descent, the disorder has yet to become a household name. Gilley said this is because the disorder was not easily detectable before 1996. “Since many doctors went to school prior to 1996 they didn’t learn about it in medical school. It’s the younger doctors that are really up on it.” Gilley said early detection is key to beating the effects of HHC. “If you get diagnosed early, you’re going to live a very normal life as long as you give blood, which is easy enough to do.” An informative presentation will take place at Two Eagles Golf Course in West Kelowna Saturday, Aug. 18 at 9:30 a.m. A Kelowna presentation will be available at Best Western Plus Hotel and Suites Aug. 20 at 7 p.m. For more information on the CHS, visit toomuchiron.ca or call 1-877-BAD-IRON (2234766).

Vaccines a major medical advance Kendall from B 5 that matter). It is far safer to get the vaccine than to get sick—especially if you or someone you love is considered high risk. Vaccines have been one of the most important medical advances of the

modern era and have been responsible for wiping out (or nearly eliminating) once common illnesses, such as smallpox. This year, if you are eligible for a free flu shot, I encourage you to get immunized. If you care for vulnerable people, I espe-

cially urge you to get immunized, and if you are a health-care worker providing care to patients, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization considers influenza immunization an essential component of the standard of care.

Finally, if you are a parent, ensure that your child’s other vaccinations are up-to-date. Vaccines are safe and effective. They reduce illness and save lives. Dr. Perry Kendall is B.C.’s provincial health officer.

WEST ▼ HISTORIC EXHIBIT

Westbank Museum trapper cabin to recognize Fur Brigade Trail Wade Paterson

“Right now our focus is getting the roof finished so we can enclose that. We’ve got doors and windows that need to be custom made (as well).”

STAFF REPORTER

Two hundred years ago, the fur trade impacted the way of life in the area that is now known as West Kelowna. It’s a piece of history that hasn’t been forgotten by the Westbank Museum; their newest attraction will focus on telling the story of the Okanagan Fur Brigade Trail. Construction is underway on the new exhibit: A trapper cabin located beside the museum. The cabin was recently donated to the museum and it will aim to help stir visitors’ imaginations as they are educated on the fur trade. “It’s a part of Westbank’s roots that we’re really pleased to display for people,” said museum president, Margaret Jackson. Jackson added the cabin is a work-in-progress, but the entire project should be complete by the winter.

IT’S A PART OF WESTBANK’S ROOTS THAT WE’RE REALLY PLEASED TO DISPLAY FOR PEOPLE. Margaret Jackson

Jackson said although the exhibit will not be completely finished, it will still be showed off at two upcoming events. This Saturday the Westbank Museum will celebrate the first anniversary in its new location. On Aug. 30, the museum will host a Fur Brigade Trail celebration breakfast for a group of 120 visitors from Oregon. Katharine Welsh, planner and designer for the

museum, said museum staff is focused on making the trapper cabin look as authentic as possible. “We’re looking for items that anybody in the community (might) have. Animal traps, fur, furniture, anything that relates to that era—we would greatly appreciate that,” said Welsh. “Right now we’re trying to put together items that we have, but we’re very open to donations of items or artifacts.” West Kelowna council unanimously authorized a commercial development permit Tuesday to allow the museum to add the cabin, as well as a covered storage area, to its property. “I see this cabin as kind of neat,” said Coun. Gord Milsom. “The Fur Brigade (Trail) is a big part of the history of the Central Okanagan; I think it’s unique to have this cabin there and I figure it will make the museum even better.”

Blathering away on a cell phone is perfectly legal in B.C. as long as it’s hands-free. The arm flexing prohibition didn’t do anything to improve safety, it simply caused British Columbians to go out and stimulate the cell phone industry by purchasing hands-free devices.

Driver distraction does not come from the minimal manual dexterity required to flex the arm and position a cell phone against the side of your head.

WESTSIDE ▼ MP’S REPORT

Constituents have opportunity to comment on riding change

A

lthough Canada’s next general election is not scheduled to occur until 2015, there could potentially be some major changes that may be of interest to citizens living in many areas of the province including Okanagan-Coquihalla. These changes are not related directly to politics but rather the riding boundaries that separate one electoral district from another. In some instances the changes may be relatively minor and in other cases the proposed changes may be more significant. For example as the current proposal stands, Summerland and Penticton would end up in different riding boundaries whereas Merritt and



Dan Albas Princeton, currently in separate ridings, would end up in the same electoral district. Conversely, Keremeos would no longer be in the same riding as Princeton, but would join Penticton, Oliver and Osoyoos in an expanded South Okanagan riding. Over in the Kootenays there would also be some

significant changes as Salmo and Nelson would be separated however Nelson would end up in the same riding as Penticton and Okanagan Falls. From a political perspective these boundary proposals are also noteworthy given that currently the southern riding is represented federally by an NDP MP and in Okanagan-Coquihalla, I was elected as a Conservative MP. From my perspective I believe it is important that as federally elected officials we avoid directly commenting on these changes and avoid any perception of attempting to influence boundary changes that may either enhance or work against partisan political interests.

West Kelowna’s Full Service Small Animal Hospital

That being said, I do believe it is important for both local and regional government representatives and more importantly citizens to be aware of these proposed changes and give consideration on accessibility of current electoral boundaries and those that are being proposed. To learn more about how your community may be impacted by these changes I encourage citizens to visit the 2012 federal electoral redistribution website or to call the commission at 1-855747-7236. If you would like to submit your comments or make a submission to the commission, your application to do so should be filed no later than Aug. 30, 2012. The commission can also be emailed directly at bc-cb@rfed-rcf.ca

While these proposed changes to the boundaries of our riding are top of my list for this year’s summer listening tour, it is far from the only item of discussion. With roughly three weeks left on my annual summer listening tour I had a chance over the weekend to compare notes I compiled from last year’s tour. It is a very worthwhile exercise to learn what concerns remain, what new topics are arising and what subjects are either less often mentioned, or no longer a topic that I am hearing about. One topic that was far more frequently raised last year when compared to this year is gas prices. Although not a topic I am hearing extensively about recently, it was a dominant topic last year and one that I covered in

a previous report and as a result have been researching and investigating gas prices over the past months. Why I am hearing fewer concerns expressed about gas prices this year compared to last may be somewhat related to fuel pricing being more stable over the past 12 months than the previous 12-month period. As an example this year gas prices have fluctuated in a range roughly within 12 cents per litre whereas the previous year there was an increase in excess of 20 cents per litre. My research to date confirms that there are many variables that contribute to the final price of fuel at the pumps and I could compose several more reports on this subject from that perspective alone.

However the question I am most commonly asked is why gas prices are significantly higher in some communities in Okanagan-Coquihalla compared with others. This is a more complex question and the one that I have focused on for many months now, and more so as the answers I have received to date do not adequately, in my view, address that question. Fortunately I have recently received information and more importantly documentation that I believe will be of benefit in taking this matter forward. I look forward to reporting back to you again in the very near future on this topic. Dan Albas is the Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla.

ARE YOU READY TO BUY A HOME? FIRST - do you have the financial resources? You should have five percent of the purchase price of a home for the down payment, but ideally even more. Are there other priorities in your life e.g. starting a new business, which require your savings? If not, buying a home should be on your radar. SECOND - do you expect to stay in your new home for some time? Moving can be expensive and you will want to build some equity before having to relocate. Your job and home life should be stable.
