CRD wants boundary discussion with IHA

COMMUNITY A12 4-H show and sale wraps up.

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

Weather outlook: Sunny with cloudy periods and rain in the forecast for today and tomorrow.

After hearing back from the Interior Health Authority it doesn’t have a mandate to discuss boundary changes, the Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District is going to make one more effort to have a meeting with the authority. In April the CCRHD wrote a letter advising Northern Health and Interior Health it wanted to initiate a discussion to explore the potential advantages of the entire CCRHD being located within Northern Health. Replying on July 18, IH Board of Directors Chair Norm Embree said boundary changes fall under the purview of the Legislative Assembly. “Potential changes as you have discussed fall outside the authority of the health authorities,” Embree wrote, adding IH believes it is inap-

propriate to engage in a discussion that is inconsistent with its mandate and provincial direction. Unhappy with the response from Embree, the CCRHD board passed a motion at its regular meeting Aug. 24 to write another letter insisting on a chance to have a discussion. “I want to express our disappointment that they are reluctant or there’s an absence of an offer to have a discussion,” CRD chair Al Richmond said. “We have some issues with what’s going on, and Cariboo Memorial Hospital is an example, as well as recruitment and retention issues. I think we need to give them one more opportunity to talk about their service delivery model and how they meet the needs of rural communities in comparison to Northern Health.” He also said he was disappointed that Interior Health wasn’t willing to come and hear the board’s con-

cerns. Area H director Margo Wagner said she felt the board should write the minister of health. “I feel we’ve given Interior Health more than enough opportunity to respond to our concerns. The fact that they themselves have brought up that it’s inconsistent with their mandate and inconsistent with provincial direction indicates that they are looking for a higher authority than us to start engaging them. “I think we can write a letter, but then we’re just wasting another four to six weeks. This probably needs to get going sooner rather than later and if they’re going to pull out the mandate and the provincial direction part then I think we should take it to the minister of health.” During the meeting, the board deferred a motion to write to the minister of health for up to six months, pending any subsequent

meeting with IH. Wagner, however, was opposed to that motion. Williams Lake Mayor Kerry Cook, who also sits on the CRD board, questioned if picking a fight with Interior Health will serve the taxpayers’ best interest. “We can fight or we work to get the decisions made so we can get the upgrades to the hospital,” she said. 100 Mile House Mayor Mitch Campsall, also a board member, described the letter from IH as an insult. “It’s almost like they don’t care, that we’re a small community and we don’t matter. It’s an insult to my community, to my doctors, and to staff members in hospitals in our area. I really take offense to it.” In an e-mail IH told the Tribune it is always interested in meeting with officials to answer any questions or concerns they may have.

Vehicles collide at Fairview Drive and Highway 97

A vehicle collision occurred on Highway 20 at Fairview Drive around 5 p.m. Thursday.

Speed reader boards installed Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Four traffic speed reader boards will be placed around Williams Lake in the near future. The Insurance Corporation of BC (ICBC), through its sharing road improvement program, has agreed to reimburse the city for the cost of two boards in the amount of $14,000, while the city will cover the cost of the other two. The initial cost of the project is $24,274, excluding taxes. At its regular meeting Aug. 21 council heard the city will use $40,000 from the 2012 budget to cover all costs. Each reader board is $5,918 plus tax, and then there’s an additional cost

of data-logging software. In a report to council Kevin Goldfuss, director of municipal services, said the boards purchased by the city will be placed in areas of concern, such as school zones. “The data that will be collected will be extremely important to staff and council and will assist the city when decisions are made regarding speed reduction, traffic calming and public awareness.” Coun. Ivan Bonnell asked if the expense was approved in the 2012 budget discussions and heard from chief administrative officer Brian Carruthers an error was made when council asked staff to go back into the budget to identify potential areas to

reduce the budget. “We gave council two options and, by error, the speed boards had been put into that, when in fact approval had been received for the speed boards with funding coming out of the community works fund and did not affect general revenue at all,” Carruthers said. “I think that may be where the confusion came in, that it had been removed because it wasn’t. We did intentionally resubmit the project to council for approval because it didn’t affect general revenue.” Council voted in favour of the speed boards, except for Coun. Danica Hughes, objecting to the added cost to the city of data-logging software.

Emergency personnel attend a motor vehicle collision on Highway 20 at Fairview Drive in Williams Lake around 5 p.m. Thursday. The Williams Lake RCMP say one vehicle was crossing Highway 20 from Terra Ridge to Fairview Drive/Country Club Boulevard while the other vehicle was westbound on Highway 20.

The driver of the vehicle crossing the road did not see the vehicle on Highway 20 and struck the rear end causing it to spin out. No one was injured. There were single occupants in both vehicles. The driver of the vehicle crossing the road was charged under the motor vehicle act for not yielding.

Vehicle slams into business Early Wednesday morning, just after midnight, the Williams Lake RCMP responded to a motor vehicle accident on Second Avenue North near Oliver Street. A witness reported that he saw a blue Ford pick up drive into a business at that location after driving through a cement planter and parking sign. The vehicle then struck two businesses, A3

causing minor damage to one while breaking the pane of glass to the other. The vehicle then fled prior to police arrival. A few hours later, the RCMP located the suspect vehicle. The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information or knowledge regarding this incident is encouraged to phone the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392-6211.

Fibre report received Aug. 24 the Cariboo Regional District received the recently released report from the Special Committee on Timber Supply titled Growing Fibre, Growing Value. The report contains twenty recommendations. In general

terms, the recommendations are consistent with the Regional District’s suggestions, including using a science based approach, promoting utilization of marginally economic forest lands, better fibre utilization and more.

Chilko River sockeye salmon run strong as ever Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Tlet’inqox (Anaham Lake) Chief Joe Alphonse describes the 2012 Chilko River sockeye salmon run as strong as ever. “We always get a good run. There will be reports coming in that there are missing salmon in the Fraser River, but that won’t be true for our Chilko Lake run. It’s the last healthy run left on the Fraser River and every year we get over a million fish,” Alphonse says.

Tsilhqot’in fishermen are catching fish in abundance, at Farwell Canyon and all the way up through to Siwash Bridge, east of Alexis Creek. “Lots of people fishing and lots of people getting lots of fish, which is what we like to see. It’s gathering season for our people.” Alphonse is planning to haul some horses with boxes down to the river to transport some of the catch home. “The trails are still there. It’s time to get some horse tracks back

on those trails again.” While the runs won’t be measured until later, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans confirms the Chilko sockeye run is the largest population coming back so far. “They’re the dominant ones,” DFO area director for the Interior Barry Rosenberger says. “The Chilko River stock has been one of the strongest Fraser sockeye populations for quite a few number of years. There are populations, like the Adams

River on the Shuswap, that is very large in one cycle year. It goes in this cycle of millions, few hundred thousands, few thousands and then a few hundreds.” To some degree the Chilko run used to do that, he explains, but since the late 1980s it has been a very strong consistent performer every year. “It’s the river system that has the most fish. If you’re averaging the four years together, and looked at who produces the most fish every year aggregate, the Chilko

would be the strongest stock in the Fraser River right now.” DFO has been working with the University of British Columbia and Carleton University to study the sockeye salmon in the Fraser River for a number of different scenarios. “One of the things they’ve come up with is that the Chilko sockeye are like the Olympians of the sockeye in the Fraser River. They have the biggest hearts and can endure changes in temperature,” Rosenberger notes.

Part of their physique is due to where they spawn. They have to swim up the highest elevation of any sockeye to spawn. Not the further distance, although it is quite a long distance, however, they do have to gain elevation. “Over time they’ve probably developed as stronger athletes of a species, so they’ve been doing very well. In more recent years, we’ve had this warming of the water in the Fraser and it may well be something that’s

benefitting the Chilko Lake system.” As well, higher numbers of egg-to-fry survival have resulted and the fish are larger in size. “When they’re leaving to go back to the ocean, their average size has been increasing,” Rosenberger says, adding the Chilko is one of the systems that has been studied consistently over 50 to 60 years so there is a large amount of data available for people wanting to make any comparisons.

Public reminded to prepare for bears Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Sheila Rowe was eating breakfast at her home on Broadway Ave. North Thursday morning when she noticed an unwelcome visitor was peering in through her window. “I heard a thump on the trailer and there was

a bear looking in my window,� Rowe says, adding the sighting happened at about 10 a.m. “It scared the heck out of my cat.� She says the bear stayed at the window for five to 10 minutes before leaving to go up a nearby hill. “He sat up there for about half an hour and

I was watching him and finally he left, and he went toward Toop (Road).� Rowe says she tried to contact the Conservation Officer Service immediately after seeing the bear. “But they never came and they never phoned,� she says, adding she wants people in the neighbourhood to be aware there is a bear in the area. Ken Owens from the Conservation Office in Williams Lake confirms there have been several bear complaints in the last 10 days in the Williams Lake area. All calls go to the main office in Victoria and then are conveyed to conservation officers’ Iphones. Recently two bears were euthanized — one on Aug. 21 near McLeese Lake and one Aug. 26 on White Road. Members of the predator attack team were called out to McLeese Lake in the early hours of Aug. 21. “It was a minor injury. The bear made contact with a

person. It stood up on its hind legs and threw out a paw and hit the guy on the upper right shoulder,� Owens says. Insp. Darcy MacPhee of the Thompson/Cariboo Region notes the bear was feeding on saskatoon berries, clover and garbage in the area. “That was a bit of a problem in that general area so the bear had been to a few houses, and this guy was the unfortunate one that was harmed, fortunately it wasn’t very serious.� The bear was captured on the property, euthanized and sent in for a necropsy. “We do that to see if there is any indication why the bear would have struck this person,� MacPhee says, adding in the case of an animal that attacks someone, there is no option but to put it down. MacPhee notes it was unusual to have a report of a bear attacking in a standing position. “It’s not something we have seen in an attack.� Owens says bears are

Bridge being replaced Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer An old wooden bridge in the Williams Lake River Valley Trail is being replaced due to safety concerns related to the five-tonne load limit with the existing structure. The replacement structure is a used bridge that meets all existing highway axle loading and safety standards, says the Ministry of Forests Lands and Resource Operations. Due to the work, the bridge will be closed Aug. 27 through Aug. 31, although staff said there’s a possibility work will be completed a day ahead of schedule,

RCMP respond to assaults Over the weekend the Williams Lake RCMP responded to two different assault incidents. At approximately 10 p.m. on Aug. 25, the Williams Lake RCMP responded to multiple complaints of an assault with a weapon at the Elks Hall. There had been a dance at the hall when three to four males attended and concealed their faces with bandanas. For no apparent reason this group of males then began to bear spray people inside and outside of the hall.   Dozens of innocent bystanders were contaminated. The aggressors shouted out gang affiliated names and identified themselves as members of a local gang.  Several victims had to be  taken to Cariboo Memorial Hospital for treatment. On Aug. 26 at 4 a.m., the Williams Lake A5

RCMP responded to a disturbance in the 1000 block of Third Ave. North. A group of six individuals (young adults) were assaulted while walking on Third Ave. by another group made up of three to four males and one female using weapons. Injuries were minor in nature. The incident is still under investigation. Anyone having information regarding either incident is asked to contact the Williams lake RCMP at (250) 3926211  or Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-8477 (tips). Over the past couple of months, there has been an increase in crimes related to vehicles including mischiefs (damage), thefts from

and thefts of. While the RCMP believe it is small group of individuals involved, the spike in these crimes has been quite significant. Over the past weekend,  the Williams Lake RCMP auxiliary constables were out on patrol in neighbourhoods notifying vehicle owners of at risk vehicles. Specifically, if personal items (valuables) were in plain view, the auxiliary constables either left a notice on the windshield of the vehicle alerting the owner of a tempting and opportunistic vulnerability or knocked on the door at the residence and spoke personally to the owner. The vehicles of choice for auto thefts recently have been Dodge pick-

Employment a concerns now


Labour Day history

e don’t often hear from our MP Dick Harris at this end of

his riding. I guess he is too busy with his parliamentary duties and looking after his constituents, but last week he was reported by Greg Fry on Cariboo BC Online, as saying the possibility of having NDP governments was scary. By opposing mega developments (i.e. Enbridge pipeline, Prosperity Mine) he said they French would Connection d o o m the area Diana French to unemployment. Dissing the opposition is fair game, it’s part of a politician’s job, but if Mr. Harris is so concerned about unemployment he could do something about it right now. People who live in areas devastated by the Mountain Pine beetle epidemic have known for years there would be unemployment when all the beetle-killed timber had been logged. Some years ago, forward-looking local politicians formed the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition (CCBAC) to develop strategies to mitigate this situation. “BACs� were also formed in other beetle- hit areas. The federal government said it would kick in dollars to help out. In a recent column, Prince George writer Peter Ewart (Opinion 250 Online) says little of this money ($1 billion) has been forthcoming, and some that did disappeared into other programs. The thing is, mills are closing now, two in Williams Lake already. I believe CCBAC has strategies ready to go. Wouldn’t this be a good time for the federal money to start kicking in? Mr. Ewart quotes Mr. Harris saying in 2006 that he supported this funding. Is he working to get it for us now? *** Prince Harry and Conrad Black have been in the news lately. Prince Harry’s latest escapade is hardly earth shattering but Mr. Black is a bit much. He’s a convicted felon who rejected his Canadian citizenship. Why should he keep his Order of Canada? Others have lost theirs for lesser reasons. Diana French is a freelance columnist for the Tribune. She is a former Tribune editor, retired teacher, historian, and book author.


Our Viewpoint

Remember the Paralympics One of the greatest sporting events is about to take place in London. No, I haven’t been cloistered away somewhere, unaware the Olympics have just ended. Aug. 29, the Paralympics 2012 begin in London and run to Sept. 9 bringing some of the world’s best athletes to the spectacle. In listening to one of Canada’s paralympians speaking, he reiterated sentiments expressed time and time again. He stated the public needs to be educated on the equal value of the paralympic games. He spoke of the same level of training, the same competitive spirit, the same pride of country and the same elation and disappointment over medals won and lost. With one runner in the Olympics competing with prosthetic legs, maybe it’s time to integrate the two spectacular events, allow the glory to be shared and the world to see world class athletes, both abled and disabled, on the same stage.

Tennis matches with the same coverage, the same worldwide audience, the same accolades and same participator satisfaction. After the Olympic 2012 games ended, there was much talk of games hangover, the deflation and the returning to the mundane once the stands were empty and the athletes had returned home. Will the public re-energize, tune in and cheer on the Paralympians like they did the Olympians in London? I admire every one of the athletes who train and follow their Olympic dream, regardless of their sport or their ableness. It’s certainly something I can only appreciate from a distance. Paralympians are no different, no less worthy and certainly no less thrilling to watch than able-bodied athletes, possibly more. Give these exemplary athletes the same credit and cheer them on for the exceptional people they are. - Black Press

abour Day weekend is nearly upon us. One of the most highly anticipated long weekends of the year, it’s one last summer hurrah for grownups and back-to-school kids alike. I’m sure you’ve all got something planned, whether it be last minute school supply shopping or one more summer weekend out of town. But how many of us have actually considered the origins of this national holiday? L a MLA bour Day Musings began Donna Barnett in 1872 when a parade was staged in support of the Toronto Typographical Union’s strike against a 58-hour work week. At the time, union activity could still be charged with conspiring against the government, and 24 leaders of the union were arrested. On Sept. 3, labour leaders called another demonstration to protest the arrests. In B.C., much of our province was still covered by woods in the 19th century. Hard-working people fell trees, constructed bridges, and erected buildings. Sadly, many lives were lost. Even though workplace standards have evolved a great deal, only recent generations of workers have seen the benefit of many workplace rights we’re accustomed to today. So aside from that last chance for everyone to soak up some summer, Labour Day long weekend is also an opportunity for us to take the time to recognize and thank the people who have made our province a better place to work and play. Before Labour Day weekend I’d also like to let everyone know about the Salvation Army’s backto-school campaign. Every year the Salvation Army collects school supplies for families in need. Because of the economic downturn we’ve faced in recent years, the program’s demand has more than doubled. The Salvation Army assembles backpacks full of school supplies so that kids who need it most can start the year off right. Why not drop off some extra items in the midst of your family’s back-to-school shopping? Items can be dropped off at the Salvation Army food bank at 272 Borland St. It’s a really great program and I hope you’re able help out. I hope everyone had a safe and exciting summer! Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Wheelchair accessible trail opens in Lac La Hache The community of Lac La Hache, is the latest community in the Cariboo Chilcotin to develop a wheelchair accessible trail, announces the Cariboo Regional District. It’s called the Lac La Hache Community Trail and was built in partnership between the Cariboo Regional District (CRD); the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development; Northern Development Initiative Trust; the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition, and the Lac La Hache Community Club. “I am extremely pleased that we have now completed the Lac La Hache Community Trail,� stated CRD Chair and Electoral Area G Director Al Richmond. “This is the next step in making the Cariboo Chilcotin one of the most attractive wheelchair accessible tourism destinations in the world. Projects such as the Lac La Hache Community Trail show what can be accomplished through regional collaboration and commitment to improving the quality of life for residents and visitors of all abilities.� The wheelchair friendly trail is approximately 620 metres long, and takes visitors to picturesque views of Lac La Hache from several viewpoints. The trail starts from an expansive accessible shelter with picnic tables, and heads down to the lakeshore where it meanders along the lake until it crosses an accessible bridge. After crossing the bridge, users can loop back to the accessible shelter, or continue along the lakeshore enjoying the scenery along the way. The trail is made of a packed, crush gravel surface and includes a gentle grade with one steeper section after the bridge that loops back to the accessible shelter. “I have been involved in the Lac La Hache Community Club for more than 20 years and during that time, the club frequently discussed constructing a trail beside the lake so the current Garlic Festival site

ble places for people of all ages and abilities,� said Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. “With the new upgrades, this wilderness trail gives everyone the opportunity to get out and enjoy the magnificent outdoor amenities this region has to offer. I commend everyone involved for bringing this valuable project to fruition.� “Northern Development is pleased to assist Lac La Hache and many other communities in the Cariboo expand their wheelchair accessible tourism opportunities through our Community Halls and Recreation Facilities grant program,� Janine North, Chief Executive Officer, Northern Development

Initiative Trust. “The Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition (CCBAC) funds projects like these where there are strong partnerships to help our region economically, environmentally and socially,� said Mayor Kerry Cook, Chair CCBAC. “The Lac La Hache Community Trail  is beautiful and a scenic highlight for our area.� Construction funding was provided through the provincial Community Recreation Program, Northern Development Initiative Trust, the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition, and the Lac La Hache Community Club. Ongoing management of the site will be pro-

vided by the Lac La Hache Community Club. The board passed a resolution in 2006 to work towards developing the Cariboo Chilcotin as a world leader in accessible outdoor recreation and tap into niche tourism markets for persons of low mobility. Other wheelchair accessible sites within the CRD include Tatlayoko, Kersley’s Sisters Creek Trail, Cottonwood Historic Site, Sepa Lake Accessible Trail and the Horsefly Salmon Spawning Trails. There are currently 13 other accessible wilderness trails being developed by the CRD, some of which were funded through the Community Recreation Program.

Horsefly River Salmon Festival goes this weekend Maureen LeBourdais Special to The Tribune You won’t want to miss the upcoming Horsefly River Salmon Festival taking place this FridayAug. 31 to Sunday, Sept 2. The weekend kicks off on Friday night at the Horsefly Community Hall with a family square dance, music provided by the Fraser River Buckaroos (Pharis and Jason Romero, Marin Patenaude and friends). Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the dance at 8 p.m.


The cost to attend is $10 each and $25 for a family of three or more. Saturday morning you can sing along and learn with the best at a free signing workshop with Pharis Romero at the Horsefly Hall from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. Sept. 1 and Sunday Sept. 2 will see fishy activities for the whole family down at the river from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., as well as kids crafts, salmon and watershed info, the ever popular fish dissection tent, interpretive walks, Northern

Shuswap traditional fish drying demos, artisan and food vendors, and more. Visitors will also enjoy a Gyotaku fish art print making workshop (a Japanese term pronounced ghe-yo-tahkoo, meaning fish gyo and print, rubbing, or impression taku). Sunday afternoon, buy a ticket on your lucky number for first prize in the Sockeye Salmon Egg float in the Spawning channels just past the bridge, co-ordinated by to the Horsefly SAWS (Seniors Ac-

tivity and Wellness Society). This year’s Salmon Festival is a collaborative event sponsored by the Horsefly River Roundtable, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, BC Hydro, and the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society. As in previous years, this is a family-focused, all-ages event aimed at celebrating and understanding more about the highly significant Horsefly sockeye salmon run. The obvious next question is, “How many salmon will there

be?� 2012 is the fourth year in the Horsefly’s sockeye cycle, which means this is likely the smallest run of the four. Nonetheless, early September is expected to be prime viewing time for the sockeye that make this remarkable journey from the Pacific Ocean back to the river of their birth.

City soccer champs crowned Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Sean Glanville scored twice and Josh Maynard added a single to help lift Windsor Plywood over Boston Pizza, 3-1, in the final of the Williams Lake Men’s Soccer League Saturday at the Esler Sports Complex. Nick Iachetta potted the lone Boston Pizza goal with just a few minutes remaining. The match, for the most part, was a back and forth affair until early in the second half when Glanville, after being delivered a perfectly placed ball from his defender, found the twine on Boston Pizza keeper Travis Nystoruk. Maynard scored what held up as the game winner on a low blast from about 40 yards out just minutes later, before Glanville sealed the deal on a low, short-side goal near the 70-minute mark. Boston Pizza, however, didn’t go without its chances — drilling a couple of posts in the second half that could have changed the outcome, drastically. Both teams advanced to Saturday’s final after playing two semifinal contests earlier in the week. Boston Pizza eliminated the Storm, 4-1 and 3-2, to advance, while Windsor Plywood tied United Carpet, 1-1, before winning Thursday, 3-2, to earn a berth in the final. On the ladies side it was Beamac beating Windsor Plywood, 6-5, and Caribou Ski beating New World, 8-6, to advance to a Thursday-night clash in the final of the Williams Lake Ladies Soccer League. Tuesday’s semifinal between Beamac and Windsor Plywood was tightly contested. Windsor Plywood mounted a comeback late in the second half after falling behind 4-1 early to push the match into overtime and, eventually, a shootout, before falling just short. Tuesday’s other semifinal between No. 1-seeded Caribou Ski and No.4-seeded New World also went down to the wire, where Caribou Ski squeaked out the victory. In the final Caribou Ski dealt with a short-sided squad and were downed by Beamac for the title. In the bronze-medal match Thursday Windsor Plywood defeated New World to take third. Saturday night teams converged at the Overlander Pub for a year-end awards banquet and dinner. Ladies’ awards were as follows: • Top forward: Vanessa Hansen • Top midfielder: Sara Fulton • Top defender: Angela Vicars

Go-karts get green light Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines — there’s a new, fun activity in town for the entire family to take part in. Gabe Pukacz, owner of Bell-E-Acres, recently opened up a new go-kart track on the property. He said so far the response from the community has been outstanding. “It’s been really good,” Pukacz said. “Kids really like it, teenagers really like it, 20 year olds really like it, 30 year olds really like it and I think the 40 year olds like it more. “Everybody seems to go, ‘What a great

idea. We’ve needed one of these in town for a long time.’” The initial process of building a go-kart track began about three years ago, Pukacz said, and took until this year to get the necessary permits to operate. Peterson Contracting Ltd. completed construction of the track early July. “It’s taken a while to get this done,” he said. “I just thought, not everyone’s a golfer and thought we’d diversify a bit.” Pukacz purchased all of the karts — 10 singles and four doubles — brand new from a company called Kartworld in Ontario. “You’ve got to be 54 inches tall to drive on

your own, but if you’re smaller than that those double karts are really popular,” he said. “We’ve had lots of kids from really young to 10 years old that have been passengers.” The track is 800 feet long and 18 feet wide, allowing for some fun opportunities while racing, he added. “That gives you lots of room to pass and race your friends,” he said. “Sometimes you’ve got to pick your corners, though, but it’s really all good. “We just want to keep things fun for the entire family. It’ll give people one more thing to do in this town, and it puts a smile on lots of peoples’ faces.”

City appoints committee to negotiate fire protection agreements with Cariboo Regional District The Province advised the City of Williams Lake in July that the current Provincial fire protection agreement covering some areas on the fringe outside the City would be discontinued as of December 31, 2012 and that alternate arrangements will be required to provide fire protection to those properties. Additionally, two fire protection agreements between the City and the Cariboo Regional District are expiring and require renewal. City Council has appointed a committee comprised of Councillors Walters, Bourdon and Zacharias with support from CAO Brian Carruthers and Director of Finance Pat Higgins. Negotiations will commence immediately in order to allow the CRD sufficient time to obtain the elector approval for taxation for continued fire protection services. The City of Williams Lake Council currently provides fire protection services to a number of properties on the fringe of the City of Williams Lake under three separate fire protection agreements. The first agreement is with the Province under the Local Services Act and covers a large number of properties on the immediate fringe of the City. The other two agreements are with the Cariboo Regional District and include areas beyond the Provincial agreement including Fox Mountain, Esler and upper Dog Creek Road. The Cariboo Regional District has expressed an interest in pursuing an agreement with the City of Williams Lake to continue providing fire protection services to the rural residents covered under the existing agreements. Any questions regarding fire protection services to properties outside the City of Williams Lake should be directed to the Cariboo Regional District.
