Developer buys West Beach site By Tracy Hughes MARKET NEWS STAFF

A North Shuswap property, which was the subject of a failed attempt to turn it into a 160-unit RV park, has now been sold to another developer. The property, formerly known as the Cottonwoods Campground but renamed West Beach Village, had been under creditor protection after Mike Rink, the previous developer, went into receivership.

The final sale of Cottonwoods Campground was confirmed by court documents, which list the new owner as a numbered company with Greg Darroch as the principal. Darroch, who could not be reached for comment before press time, has developed other properties in the Shuswap. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District denied Rink the zoning for the development, which was to feature 199-year leases on properties

within the West Beach Village development. This was later challenged in B.C. Supreme Court, but in January the courts upheld the CSRD’s right to deny the proposal. News of the sale comes as a blow to community members and environmental activists who were attempting to have the property, located at the mouth of the Adams River, added to Roderick Haig Brown Provincial Park. “The Cottonwoods property al-

ready went through a lengthy and costly rezoning application process, which was wisely turned down by our local government leaders,” explained Jim Cooperman, president of the Shuswap Environmental Action Society. “It would be a significant waste of time and taxpayer’s money to consider another development on this property as it is clear that it would be strongly opposed locally, provincially, nationally and internationally.”

Proposed Sorrento cell tower SilverBacks Hockey has neighbours complaining By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Sorrento residents are upset over the proposal to install a Telus Mobility cell phone tower that will stand 60 metres high, just beyond their living room window. Marilyn and Phil Clark, Sorrento residents, say they are not opposed to the tower itself, but the location. The 0.24-hectare piece of land located at 1043 Dilworth Rd. is directly off the Clarks’ front lawn. This has created a concern for the Clarks regarding what the view from their quiet home may be in a few months. Shawn Hall, Telus spokesperson, says none of the proposed plans are concrete at this point, explaining that the company is still listening to concerns and considering suggestions. The report that was presented to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board on March 23 states that the tower is expected to be 196.85 feet high and will include a small building to house equipment as well as a fence that will surround the area.

Tower in demand to improve cell service Continued from pg.2 Schmidke says moving the tower to Clarks’ suggested locations would be challenging for a number of reasons. “In this specific case, the fact that the land is not currently being used for agriculture is immaterial,” states Schmidke in response to the unused land on the other side of the street. However, the main alternative Telus had suggested to the proposed site is the same one which the Clarks are suggesting. The board report presented to the CSRD states, “In spite of the negligible impact that this small site represents, significant other areas on the property exist that would be less of an impact on the overall agriculture use of the property, should this facility be considered to be located elsewhere.”

# This is the site of a proposed cell phone tower on Dilworth Road in Sorrento. Phil says he wishes the CSRD had consulted with residents before approving the tower. Residents had not been made aware of the plans for the towers until after they appeared before the regional district, when Telus themselves sent out an information package to all homeowners in the area and gave them a month to voice their concerns,

Hall, however, says Telus is still listening to concerns and no official plans have been made at this point. “We are looking at options right now; if you would like to contribute further you can do so now,” says Hall. “We are reviewing all the feedback that has come in.” Addressing the concern some locals have regarding the cellphone tower going up without

Fearing for park safety By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

While Salmon Arm can offer shelter to homeless people in the winter months, in the summer, options aren’t so straightforward. Travelling to Vernon or Kamloops to the shelters there is one possibility, while some people choose to find a spot under the stars. It’s this option that concerns residents such as Sandra Seale, who enjoys Little Mountain Park regularly. She says she noticed someone had been camping in a secluded area of the park, so she requested that city staff ask him to move, mainly because of the fire hazard. “We can’t have open fires burning in our park, and the littering is also unacceptable.” City staff cleaned up part of the mess, said Seale, and then she and a few residents went in last weekend to pick up what was left.

JAMES MURRAY/MARKET NEWS

#Volunteers Sarah Figgess, Bev Gosling, Sandra Seale and Morgan Figgess clean up garbage left in Little Mountain Park. “Empty tin cans thrown around the nearby woods mainly. Also old newspapers, a butcher knife, some tent poles. This person was not a ‘leave only footprints’ kind of guy.” City public works manager John Rosenberg said a fire pit was in the area but it was unused. He said young people build makeshift shelters in the park, but camping is more unusual. However, it does happen sometimes, he

says, in Coyote Park, in an area just west of Peter Jannink Park and, at Little Mountain. “I don’t believe there’s

any way to prevent it from happening,” he said. “If we’re made aware of it, we certainly investigate.”

SILVERBACKS SPOTLIGHT

The BCHL doesn’t keep stats on blocked shots and pain killers taken, but if they did the man to the right would surely lead the league. Twenty year old Kimberly, B.C native and returning defenseman Bennett Hambrook wasn’t just a leader in the dressing room in his first season with the SilverBacks; he did it on the ice as well. With his often terrifying reckless abandon for his own well-being, and he says he’s ready for another season after a grueling summer, “Twice a day work-outs, in the morning and after work, lots of running and a ton of time in the weight room.” Hambrook says the attitude around the Shaw Centre has done a complete 180, “It’s amazing to see the turnaround with the guys coming in, the front-office staff, the hockey staff and the community; everyone’s ready to go and has huge expectations. It is really exciting to be a part of.” It’s clear that he’s heard the message from Head Coach and GM Troy Mick, as well, “We’re not going to sit back; we are going to push. No let-up, no give-up, up by five or down by five the guys are going to go hard no matter what.” Your SilverBacks host the Vipers this Friday at 7pm in the last exhibition game at the Shaw before the Vipers return on Friday September 14th at 7pm for the home opener.

Friday, August 31, 2012 Shuswap Market News

OPINION Changes to ICBC operations overdue The BC Liberals have completely mishandled ICBC. The proof came out on Aug. 16, when a government review showed the Crown corporation has been hiring boatloads of senior managers and paying them more each year — with the Liberals apparently oblivious. There are 32 per cent more managers than in 2007, and they are paid (as a group) 70 per cent more than managers received in 2007. Fifty-four of them made more than $200,000 each in 2011. The Liberal government insisted, on taking office in 2001, that ICBC didn’t need to be privatized, nor did there need to be complete competition in the auto insurance sector. They have also insisted, especially in recent years, that substantial dividends from ICBC go back to the shareholder — the government. This means that all of the Crown corporation’s customers – and that’s everyone who owns a vehicle – are paying additional insurance premiums to boost government revenues. It’s a tax grab, hidden in the guise of insurance costs. The government has now, very belatedly, said ICBC meeds to cut its management costs and manager compensation. At the same time, the B.C. Utilities Commission approved an 11.2 per cent rate increase for basic insurance, starting December. The simple fact is this: ICBC is being used by government for all sorts of purposes that are far afield from its ostensible role as a public car insurance company. This isn’t new — the NDP did this with ICBC back in its earliest days. But it certainly points out that the Liberals are just as good as the NDP at mismanaging Crown corporations and sticking taxpayers with extra costs. – Black Press

Based on science and not politics Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s response to questions about the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project was that the fate of the pipeline will be based on science and not politics. If only that were true. The Enbridge Northern Gateway Project is an estimated $5.5 billion megaproject involving the construction of two parallel 1,150-kilometre pipelines across our province. While its Proponents point out that the project could add an estimated $270 billion to the economy of the nation (over 30 years), those who oppose the project point out that the coastal waters of BC present an extremely risky environment for tanker traffic, not to mention the estimated 400,000 to 1,000,000 barrels a day of crude oil that would be moved by pipeline. While it is hard to wrap one’s mind around such enormous figures, it is not all that hard to focus in on the potential impact such a project could have on the environment. The federal government’s response to people’s concerns

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray about risk to the environment was the establishment of the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project Joint Review Panel which, according to a press release from the National Energy Board, will provide “an open and transparent forum” for all hearing participants to make their view known. The problem as I see it, is the continued fallout from Bill-C38 in the form of all the recent cuts to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. The federal government sent out letters to 92 habitat staff members in British Columbia telling them their positions will be cut, thus reducing the department in B.C. to half the habitat staff it had a decade ago. This begs the obvious question of how all these cuts will impact the

DFO’s ability to effectively supply facts, figures and other relevant information to the Joint Review Panel in a timely manner? “Heavy workloads and staff reductions at the DFO could jeopardize the federal government’s ability to protect Canadians from the negative impacts of industrial projects,” says an internal government document obtained under access to information laws. “Continuity of DFO team members throughout the process is critical to providing clear, consistent, and defensible advice, positions, and permits.” Of course Enbridge has always asserted that if there were, indeed, unacceptable environmental risks posed by their Northern Gateway Project, the Joint Review Panel would simply stop the project from proceeding by enacting regulations under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and the National Energy Board Act. The fact remains that the federal government’s environmental assessment system has only ever found an

unacceptable environmental impact in three cases of the more than 10,000 they have had to consider since 2003. Bill C-38 introduced, repealed and/or amended a significant number of federal laws including amendments to the Navigable Waters Act, the Fisheries Act, the Species at Risk Act, the Canada National Parks Act, the Canada National Marine Conservation Areas Act, the Parks Canada Agency Act and the First Nations Land Management Act. And don’t forget that lost in all of the government’s double-speak were a number of more subtle changes that remove previously existing regulations prohibiting “pollution or harm to fish habitat” and replaces them with new provisions that would prevent “serious harm” to specific types of fisheries considered to be “of commercial, recreational or aboriginal value.” Wouldn’t it be nice if the Prime Minister would make a statement that the fate of the environment would be based on science, not politics.

Explore the heart of the Adams River watershed

SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman After decades of desire, we finally made the nearly four-hour drive up to Tumtum Lake to camp, canoe and explore the area. Upon first sight of the lake its beauty astounded us, as its deep turquoise colour and alpine mountain backdrop reminded us of Lake Louise. In some ways it was better to have waited this long to make the journey, as for years I have heard how the area had been devastated by clearcut logging and now, at least, the loggedover landscape is filled with mostly healthy, fast-growing plantations. However, we did drive by two areas that had been planted with lodgepole pine that appeared anemic, as this species is not native to this Interior wetland ecosystem.

In the 1990s, I participated in the Kamloops Land and Resource Management Planning process, which was the first one for the province. Through intense negotiations with the forest industry, we were able to create the 5,733 hectare Upper Adams River Provincial Park that includes Tumtum Lake, along with a strip of land along the entire stretch of the river between the two lakes. Despite its park status, not a dime has been spent to improve the two former forestry recreation campsites, and we could not even find a park sign. We chose to camp at the lower site, where there are some trees and one old, worn picnic table, as the other site is a large open area with no amenities. It took us only three hours to canoe around the lake, keeping close to the shore to avoid any sudden dangerous, rough water from the frequent winds. At the far end, where the upper, Upper Adams River enters the lake, there is an enormous sand bar that forms a perfect beach. Although the lake is

very picturesque, it is far from pristine and there are actually two cabins. One, a very small log building, is next to the campsite and belongs to a trapper who still uses it every winter. A hunting guide built the other log cabin and the lease was grandfathered when the park was created and now a family uses it as a summer cottage. We learned from the cottage owner how the small glaciers that can be seen from the lake, and are the source of the glacier silt that colours the water turquoise, have melted significantly over the last 10 years. Back at the campsite, we were intrigued by the constant roaring sound of rushing water. The next day, we paddled to the east side of the bay and found a short trail that leads to the approximately 12-foot high waterfall at the outlet of the lake. It is this roaring sound that likely gave the lake its name, which is a Chinook jargon word for “the pulsing of the heart.” Prior to the logging, there was once an ex-

tensive ancient old growth cedar/hemlock rainforest surrounding Tumtum Lake and extending up the valley and along the tributaries. The provincial park now protects small remnants of this more than 1,000-year-old forest, although these trees are not as large as old growth found elsewhere due to the lack of soil richness. A few kilometres to the north of the lake is another small, 286-hectare park.Oregana Creek was named by famed B.C. lichenologist, Trevor Goward for a rare type of oceanic lichen found there. Goward has developed the term “antique” to describe B.C.’s rare old growth Interior rainforests, that indicate these forests are far older than the oldest trees in them. Since Tumtum Lake does not have a Secwepemc name, it is possible the Shuswap people did not have settlements there. However, the 1904 diary of English settler, Spencer Tuck, who spent two winters trapping and gold panning along the Adams River 20 miles north of Adams Lake,

describes the remnants of a settlement, “there is every indication of this having been a large Indian camp at sometime, as there are remains of old sweat houses and wigwams all around.”

NEW FINE ARTS STUDIO HOLDS GRAND OPENING SEPTEMBER 7th

I

nterested in tapping into your inner creativity or wishing to further yourself in a previously discovered art form? You’ll be happy to learn that FACES is opening in the South Shuswap on September 7th. FACES, Fine Arts Community Explorations in the Shuswap, welcomes everyone to their Grand Opening event on Friday September 7th from 630 to 830. The public is invited to come down and tour the new studios, meet the teachers and indulge in a refreshment or dessert. The studios are located on the lower level of the Blind Bay Marketplace Mall, next to the space Field’s used to occupy. FACES has four studios to serve the community with plans to expand, adding a second dance studio within a year. Classes are offered for all ages from tots right through to seniors and all levels, introductory to advanced. Area residents Karen Brown and Claire Burgoyne had a vision to bring a studio of this na-

ture to the community and now it’s finally here. “The residents of this area have chosen to live here for a variety of reasons. Whether raising a new family or entering mid-life or approaching their twilight years, they recognize that there is no place in our province that is more beautiful.” says Brown. “Residents know how to embrace the lifestyle here whether it’s pursuing outdoor activities in the warmer months or taking up new hobbies like an art form in the cooler months. They are up for anything for themselves or their children and we’re hoping that they can explore something new at FACES” Adds Brown “It could have been very easy to start this fine arts program out of an existing centre or hall however part of our plans were to create a space that the residents of the South Shuswap could call their own when it came to pursuing art, dance, music, voice or theatre.” And that has become their mission statement. To the left of the entrance doors reads a

sign “At FACES our goal is to provide our community members with a place to gather while exploring their creativity”. Walking through the doors, one first finds a beautiful, bright art studio where one can take drawing, painting, sculpture, clay, fabric & fibre art and collage, just to name a few of the course offerings. Across the hall, there are two private soundproofed studios where one can take up voice or music lessons. And lastly, toward the back, is the dance studio, complete with a clean air exchange system and a free-floating sprung floor, both installed to keep the dancers and teachers comfortable. “It is very important for students to be dancing on a sprung floor. It not only enhances performance, it greatly reduces chance of injury as well. When we were designing the studios, the dancers’ safety and future health was at the forefront, therefore putting in the sprung floor system was a must.” And the quality of the

studio design is matched by the quality of teachers stepping forward, all eager to teach within its walls. One such teacher is Claire Burgoyne. During her sixteen years as an educator, Claire has worked with children and youth in both public and private education. She led numerous community arts events while teaching in Penticton and Nanaimo

and has enthusiastically worked with young artists to assist youth in discovering their own creativity. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts, teaching credentials from the University of Victoria and is currently completing a Master of Education Technology degree. Claire is passionate about seeing various projects such as student gallery show-

ings and dinner theatre come to our area. She will offer her services to teach a number of visual arts classes at FACES. Throughout the year, FACES will welcome guest teachers in to hold day-long workshops teaching anything from oriental brush painting to the art of bellydance. And beginning next summer, children will be welcomed to enrol

for weeklong camps or daycamps in a variety of fine arts. FACES is certainly shaping up to be a fine arts centre serving all of our community. Registration forms can be downloaded or completed online or you can obtain more information by calling Karen at 250 515 3276. (Paid advertisement)

As well, individual submissions are invited and can be submitted through the new trail report hotline at trailreport@shuswaptrails. com. Send comments on the following: What are the recreational trails and routes that you consider a priority for improved access management? And why? The Shuswap Recreational Access and Trail Management Planning process will include an inventory of existing and proposed recreational trails through-

out the watershed, an environmental audit of those trail systems, First Nations reviews, community participation to establish management priorities, and the creation of a Shuswap Trails Protocol to give direction to future planning and management.

Pair of cadets earn wings Cadets of Salmon Arm’s 222 Shuswap Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron earned their wings after graduating Aug. 17 from the Regional Gliding School (Pacific) at CFB Comox. Cadet Andrew Stoney received his glider pilot wings and a Transport Canada glider license along with Cadet Jackson Calvert, who also received his power pilot wings and private pilot’s license, on the final Wings Graduation Parade, in recognition of their accomplishments. Stoney was one of 45 other air cadets from across B.C. who spent six weeks learning to fly the Schweizer 2-33A glider to Transport Canada’s licensing standards. He was awarded the Harry Astoria Memorial Gliding

Award for being the first runner-up glider cadet who displayed a high degree of flying skills, airmanship, maturity and self-discipline. “The course took a lot of hard work to complete, but was definitely rewarding,” Stoney said. As a grade 10 pianist working on his third concerto, Stoney is accustomed to working hard and being disciplined. It is perhaps the reason he also loves to do drill, and coached the drill team last year. Calvert was among 37 other cadets trained at one of the three flight centres hosting the Power Pilot Scholarship Course in B.C. this summer. He trained for seven weeks on the Cessna 172 at the Victoria Flying Club. Like many who

go on the Power Pilot Scholarship Course, Calvert already had his Glider Pilot license through the cadet program. Calvert will be entering Grade 12 at Salmon Arm Secondary, and plans to apply to the Royal Military College to become a doctor in the Canadian Forces. “These young men and women have worked very hard this summer to become licensed pilots, and we are all very proud of their accomplishments,” said Lt.-Col Tony Appels, Commanding Officer of RGS (Pacific). The Air Cadet program is a co-educational organization for youth between the ages of 12 and 18. For more information, see www.222air. com.

Sea scouts program starts in Shuswap We may not live on the sea, but living on the shores of Shuswap Lake provides ample reason for young people to head out on the water. Now a Silver Creek man is attempting to start a Seafarers group of the Adventurers Association of Baden-Powell, which is a traditional Scouting association, with the addition of a water-based component. Ron Long has more than 24 years of Sea Scouting experience and is looking to start a group in Salmon Arm. It would be open to boys ages of 7 to 11 in the Timberwolves category, and 11 to 18 in the Seafarers. Members would learn many Sea Scouting skills including swimming, sailing, canoeing and power boating, as well as camping and woodcraft. Although the group expects to start weekly meetings in September, the sea scouting year would not shut down for the summer. Instead, the annual cruise onboard the group’s flagship boat, The Brownsea Isle, offers the chance to put seamanship skills into practice. Sea Scouting would also provide the necessary training to meet and exceed the standards of obtaining a Pleasure Craft Operator card, which is required by all boat operators on the lake. The organization is a traditional scouting association, and is run completely by volunteers. This allows membership fees to be kept low and are intended only to cover the insurance package. For more information, contact Long at 250-833-1972, or by email at aabp.seafarers@gmail.com. Adult volunteers are also encouraged and must be prepared to pass a police records check.

Chase News

CHASE Chase acquires new doctor By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Interior Health has announced the latest addition to the two physicians working out of Chase, just weeks after residents in the area participated in a day of protest in reaction to the increase in Emergency Centre closures. As of Sept. 4, Dr. Cornel Barnard will be the latest doctor to set up practice in the Chase Medical Clinic. The new physician plans to begin working at the clinic three days per week with hopes of increasing his clinic days over the next six months, announced Interior Health. Barnard will be accepting new patients who are not already in the care of Dr. Gursharan Gill or Dr. Sandeep Sharma and will be providing much-needed support at the Chase Emergency Department. Since April of this year, Interior Health has issued more than 29 temporary closure notices for the Chase ER,

CAVELLE LAYES/MARKET NEWS

#The Emergency Department housed in the Chase & District Health Centre will be able to open with the arrival of a third doctor. which compares to a total of 16 closure days throughout 2011. Bryan Redford, community area director for Interior Health, explains that in order to keep the Chase Emergency Department open, at least three physicians are needed at all times. Redford says Interior Health tries to avoid closing down the centre whenever possible, and works until the last minute to try to fill the gaps. “Sometimes there is

just nothing else we can do,” says Redford. The lack of adequate health care has many residents in the area concerned and sparked a protest on Aug. 14. Val Donnelly, Chase resident and one of the protest organizers, would like to see more than three doctors in Chase, explaining how the area once had six physicians working out of the village. Donnelly plans on organizing more protests in the future, with the

hope of getting the attention of the government and getting help for her community. Her goal is not to simply attract more doctors to Chase, as she agrees that the Interior Health Authority does a good job doing this, but to convince them to stay once they are here. “Too many of them move away to other areas,” says Donnelly. “We need to figure out why they do not stay here and find solutions to fix this problem.” Whenever the Chase ER is closed, residents must get emergency service at hospitals in Salmon Arm or Kamloops. Interior Health acknowledges the hard times that Chase residents have been facing recently. “We would like to thank residents for their ongoing patience, recognizing the recent changes in our physician group and the resulting impact on ER hours of operation during the spring and sumer,” says the Interior Health in a press re-

Rain welcomed by marshmallow roasters Thanks to rain, the campfire ban in the Chase, Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Merritt and Lillooet fire zones was lifted at noon, Aug. 24. A campfire ban remains in place in all of the Okanagan, including the Vernon and Penticton fire zones. Open burning continues to be prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre, which includes Salmon Arm. This prohibition applies to open fires larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide, fires with a burn registration number, industrial burning, fireworks and burning barrels. The open burning

prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban may be issued a ticket for up to $345. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated fire fighting costs. The open burning prohibition will remain in place until the public is notified that it has been rescinded. For the latest infor-

mation on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road clo-

sures and air quality advisories, go to: www. bcwildfire.ca.

Prairie Roots musicians come to town Song of the Prairies, a concert with Darrel and Saskia, is coming to Chase. On Thursday, Sept. 13, Darrel Delaronde and Saskia, also known as the touring band of Gary Fjellgard, will come to the Chase Creekside Seniors Centre, across from the legion, at 7:30 p.m. They bring a wonderful collection of songs with folk, roots, Celtic and country flavour, along with fabulous harmonies and stunning musicianship. The fact that Saskia & Darrel often tour with Canadian music icon Gary Fjellgaard speaks volumes about their abilities as musicians and song writers. Fjellgard is well known throughout the music industry as being very “fussy” about his sound and the integrity of his show. This dedication to excellence is one of many lessons learned by this dynamic duo from their years on the road with him. On their own, they are a powerful presence in their field; winning Top 5 people’s choice awards, hitting the #4 spot on MSN Radio’s National Top 30 Countdown, and being nominated for Album of the Year, Aboriginal Artist of the Year (times three), as well as Songwriter of the Year in Saskatchewan. Saskia and Darrel remain a perennial favorite on the Indy Euro stations. Their music is blithely described as “Prairie Roots.” Tickets are available at the door for $10. For more information, call Denise at 250-577-3857. Partial proceeds to support the seniors centre.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 ONLY!

What’s On in Chase

HARRISON, YVONNE It is with great sadness and many tears that we announce the sudden passing of Evelyn Yvonne Harrison (Gotobed) on August 25, 2012. Yvonne was born December 6, 1936 in Vernon, BC. She is survived by her loving husband of 48 years John Harrison. Her four children: Terry Lewis (Philip), Jo-Anne Harrison (Shane), David Harrison (Lindsay) and Darren Harrison (Nicole); nine grandchildren, five great grandchildren, whom she adored. Also left to cherish her memory are her sister Maureen (Jim) Halawell and her brother Rankin (Vickie) Gotobed. Yvonne was an amazing giving person; she was a devoted rancher’s wife and community volunteer. She touched the hearts of everyone she met. She had passions for writing, photography, travel, cooking, cake decorating and singing. She is loved and will be missed by many. The family would like to thank the ICU staff at Royal Inland Hospital for the great care and family support. A Celebration of Yvonne’s life will be held in the Chase Secondary School, 420 Cottonwood Street on Friday, August 31, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Should friends desire, donations to a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated in her memory.

Joan Lindsay Blomquist passed away peacefully in Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, BC on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at the age of 89 years. Born Joan Lindsay Turner in Preston, Lancashire, England on February 23, 1923, she was raised by her grandmother, coming to Canada in 1926 to Manitoba and in her late teen’s moving to Vancouver. Joan was proud of her service in the Army Pipe Band during WW 11, traveling to many locations and had the pleasure of shaking hands with the Queen. She married Walter Blomquist on November 9, 1956 and moved to Malakwa, where she quickly started her family. Joan loved nature, animals of all sizes, never giving a second thought to what her girls brought home. She is well remembered for her love of cooking, baking, especially her Chinese Food. Determination and being outspoken was part of her personality, at the same time she enjoyed humor, was very social, and believed happiness was important in this life. Survived by her loving family, husband, Walter; 2 daughters, Judy Johnston of Malakwa, and Coleen (Neil) Reiswig of Sicamous; 4 grandchildren, Hailey and Taren Johnston, Kent and Brennen Reiswig, ½ brother, Joe Welsh of Singapore. A celebration of life service was held from the Malakwa Community Hall on Saturday afternoon, August 25th at 1 p.m. with Jack Bowers the celebrant. Tributes were shared by family and friends with Honors presented by comrades of the Sicamous Royal Canadian Legion. Interment followed in the family plot in Malakwa Cemetery with daughters Coleen and Judy the urn bearers. Honorary Pallbearers were Neil, Kent and Brennen Reiswig, Bruce, Kent and Bryan Blomquist. A reception, provided by the community members, followed back in the Hall, allowing time for friends to continue sharing memories with the family. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC VIE 4N3 Email condolences may be sent to Joan’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Funeral arrangements were in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

TOMPKINS, FLOYD December 8th, 1923 – August 17th, 2012 With heavy hearts we announce the passing of a real cowboy, Floyd Tompkins. He was predeceased by the love of his life Eileen of 40 years. He is survived by his brother Lewis, and predeceased by brothers Eddie, Earl, Russell and sisters Eva and Edna, also predeceased by grandson Harlen. Floyd is survived by his children Harley (Glenda), Echo (Murray), Bonnie (Oliver) and Wayde (Rhonda), his eight grandchildren and ten great grandchildren, and his numerous nephews and nieces. Also, by Eileen’s children Ken (Shirley) deceased, Bob (Barb), Roberta (Will), Allan (Jean) and Susan (Doug), ten grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren. Floyd was the last of 13 children born to Charles and Annie Tompkins in Chilliwack, B.C. At a very young age he left for the Cariboo via horseback. He met up with his brother, Earl, and together they ran wild horses and cows. They built log homes and corrals in remote areas to capture these animals. They would then ‘head and tail’ them to Kamloops to sell. In the late 50’s Floyd ventured to Kamloops/Chase area making a living as a cowboy and big game outfitter to the Americans and Europeans. He was a true gentleman in the sense that there would be no swearing around women, he tipped his hat, opened car doors and walked on the proper side of the lady with the expectations that these traits be carried on by his children and grandchildren. In 1972 Floyd met Eileen Harrison at a Pritchard dance which was the beginning of their 40 years love affair. This love extended to both families. Also with loving hearts they reached out to all. They spent 14 years traveling as snowbirds. Due to health problems their travel was limited however; they still continued to venture to Alaska twice, once by motorhome, which Floyd always said they did not give themselves enough time, and once by ship. In their travels they saw the Grand Ole Opry, Graceland, and all family throughout the country. He always dreamed of visiting Australia. Floyd never missed the opportunity to play a prank, or a joke on any innocent victim. The twinkle was always in his eye. His passion for life lead to the writing of 2 books: The Mad Hunt for Those Ruby Eyes, and Honest Memories of One Man’s Life. The families would like to thank Dr. Avanessian, the special girls at the Cancer Clinic and at Parkside, and the kindness and exceptional care at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home. A funeral service was held Thursday, August 23rd in the Chase Community Hall. Interment followed at Duck Range Cemetery and then followed by tea at the Harrison Ranch. In lieu of flowers the family wishes donations in memory of Floyd Tompkins to the Marjorie Snowden Hospice Association, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S., Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9.

HARPER, BETTY Betty Harper, daughter of Jack and Amelia Gattinger was born near the village of Duff, SK in March 1926. She passed away on August 8, 2012. Betty is survived by two daughters and one son: Marguerite Colborne – Prince George, BC, Elizabeth Konkin – Calgary, AB, and Bill Harper – Terrace, BC; eleven grandchildren and one great grandchild. Betty is predeceased by her parents, sisters Frances Smulan and Roslyn Friesen, and brother Eugene. Besides being a mother, Betty spent more than 35 years in the classroom at Lemberg and Hudson Bay, SK, as well as Terrace and Sorrento, BC. Her heart was in the teaching system where she spent most of her time with first-graders. Music, especially the piano, was a vocation of hers. When retired from teaching, she spent a very happy period of four years, 1985-1989, as an Activity Worker at Ina Grafton Gage Nursing Home in Moose Jaw. Zion United Church was her church-home. All through the years the message proclaimed by the Church was very important to Betty. A Celebration of Betty’s life was held at St.Andrew’s United Church on Monday August 20, 2012. Reverend Jim Tenford officiated. Following Cremation, memorialization took place in the family plot at the Indian Head Cemetery.

important legislature to impact workers in the following century. Union pioneers petitioned their employers for a reduction in the number of hours worked - asking that their workweek be reduced to six, 9-hour days. They formed an organization dubbed the Nine Hours Movement and argued that reducing working hours would benefit both workers and society as more time would be spent with family and community. Employers scoffed at their claims and rejected their demands. At the time it was a crime to be member of a union in Canada yet in a

courageous act of defiance, the Toronto Typographical Union went on strike to secure the nine-hour workday. A parade was held which drew some 10,000 spectators. The workers went on strike. Many lost their job and were forced to relocate. Their employers brought in replacement workers and used this so called ‘conspiracy’ to have 24 members of the movement arrested and jailed. SEPT 3 On June 14, 1872 Macdonald passed the Trade Union Act that legalized union activity, freed the workers and endeared him to the working class. The Toronto printers strike paved the way for unions across North America to demand a 54hour workweek. Canadian trade unionists have ever since, celebrated this day that has been set aside to hon honor ‘those who labour.’ The first Labour Day parade was held in Winnipeg in 1894, and was two miles long. Today approximately 3 30 percent of BC’s workforce is covered by a collective agreement. As Labour Day has evolved it remains a day of celebration, sol solidarity, speeches and recreation. The issues faci facing workers have also evolved. Today’s labou labour unions negotiate on behalf of a changing workforce in an ever-evolving workplace. Bri British Columbians have different challenges to deal with, whether it is record-h record-high housing prices, increasing levels o of debt and living longer. Minimu Minimum wage, overtime, working conditio conditions for farmworkers, health and saf safety and access to affordable daycare are all important labour issues. This Labo Labour Day, take a moment to reflect on the history and significance of the day.
