Cities disputing who will resolve sewer dispute BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Talk about a stalemate. The Silver City is currently ensnarled with the Golden City over who they will choose as the mediator in their ongoing dispute over who pays what in the delivery of regional sewage services. The City of Trail’s lawyer has spoken with the City of Rossland’s lawyer and the two parties are not in agreement over a preferred arbitrator. This means the dispute resolution officer will likely have to make the final selection, Trail city councillor Robert Cacchioni said. “What is most disconcerting at this time is Rossland’s ongoing suggestion, or position, where they believe the jurisdiction of the dispute and resolution officer to order arbitration is questionable,” he said. “And it remains unclear if this is going to be challenged by Rossland through the courts.” If Rossland does legally challenge the jurisdiction issue, it will ultimately delay the arbitration hearing and raises the concern for the matter that will not be fully resolved until the end of the year. That would put the city into arrears of five years—at $109,000 per year—that they believe they are over paying in the service, said Cacchioni.

Invasive plants posing a problem BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Fruitvale has been invaded – by plants. On Monday night in Fruitvale’s regular council meeting, the Central Kootenay Invasive Plant Committee’s spokesperson Jennifer Vogel gave an annual presentation to advise council of invasive plant species within the area. Fruitvale has a few areas that have invasive plants, including a small area on the northside hill on Highway 3B, close to the west

New YCDC co-ordinator eager to engage youth BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

A new school year and a new youth co-ordinator. Liz Johnston was hired at the Columbia Youth Community Development Centre (YCDC) in mid-August, and recently began preparing special programming for youth. “It’s going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to meet everyone,” Johnston said. “I’m ready to jump in and get busy, and get some use in here.” She noted that now the summer doldrums have passed for young people, she planned to contact schools to raise awareness of what the centre contained. “I want to start making connections,” she said. “I’m going to be going in there and talking with them, and letting them know what kind of programs are being offered at this moment.”

“Basically I want the youth to plan what they want and I’ll work my hardest to get it for them.” LIZ JOHNSTON

Currently, the YCDC offers movie nights for high school seniors on Monday nights 6:30-9 p.m., and juniors on Wednesday nights from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday is available for special programming, but Johnston planned to wait to finalize those plans until she got feedback from program participants. “I want to incorporate my love of the outdoors with the youth and get some sort of outdoor recreation program going,” Johnston said, after explaining that Red Mountain lured her from Ontario to

Rossland roughly 15 years ago. “Basically I want the youth to plan what they want and I’ll work my hardest to get it for them.” She has been researching the Columbia Basin Trust’s (CBT) Community-Directed Youth Funds (CDYF) for applications, and will be applying for financial aid through the application process. The CDYF is part of the CBT’s recent Youth Strategic Plan to rid youth of boredom, by providing a hub for teens between the ages of 12 and 15 years old. It ensures $100,000 to communities over a fouryear period—a sum Fruitvale recently received—with funding provided in annual $25,000 payments. A CBTrelated workshop is expected to take place in late-October. In addition to seeking financial aid for the YCDC,

Johnston has joined the Skate Park Committee and she has been developing an online presence with youth via Facebook. Johnston has also been brainstorming for ideas about specialty programs, like Beauty, Brains and Badass—a program-possibility that could run for girls over the age of 13 if there is enough interest. She wants to provide girls with opportunities to learn new skills that enhance their physical, mental and emotional well-being by exposing them to new activities, ranging from positive peer support to community mentors.

Rossland resident and tireless volunteer Bobbi LaFond was presented with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal on Monday night. People packed into the Rossland Legion Hall to be a part of the ceremony, where representatives from many diverse organizations LaFond has been a part of talked of her importance to the community. To celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year on the throne, the medal is given to prominent volunteers in the community. Kim LaFond, Bobbi’s brother introduced speakers, while Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom, John Greene and Senator Nancy Greene-Raine sat alongside Bobbi at the front. Over the years, LaFond has played an instrumental part in organizations such as Scouts Canada, Rossland United Church Women’s Organization, Girl Guides, Heart and Stroke Foundation, Rossland Health Care Auxiliary, Meals on Wheels, Rossland Legion and the Rossland Curling Club. John Greene, owner of Rossland Hardware, was a part of the nomination committee. “A couple weeks ago I got a call from Nancy wondering if there was someone in town worthy of this medal,� Greene said. After asking around it was LaFond’s name that came up over and

When it was finally time for LaFond to talk after receiving the medal, she couldn’t read her notes because of the tears in her eyes. “I’m thankful for having lived most of my life in this community and raise our family here,â€? LaFond said. “I volunteered as a way to pay back the community.â€? She said that when she was raising her 15 children, it was with the help of school teachers, coaches and other leaders that helped. “You don’t do it alone, you do it with everyone,â€? she went on. “Over the years, I’m thankful for being able

to volunteer. I met a lot of great people in Rossland. I’ll never ever forget all of the people that I’ve known and the good times that we’ve had.� LaFond described her career of volunteerism as “doing a few things here and there,� and said it’s meant as much to her, as anybody she’s volunteered with. Laurie Karn, who spoke on behalf of Rossland Fall Fair, Rossland Curling Club and 2nd Rossland Cub Mothers, said LaFond had turned her on to volunteering when her oldest son joined Beavers in 1985. “Within the first few weeks, Bobbi had somehow signed me up with the cub mothers auxiliary,� Karn said.

“Before long, I was helping at bottle drives, serving at teas, cooking and cleaning up at banquets and involved in many other events and fundraisers.� LaFond also persuaded Karn to join the Fall Fair Society, which brings Rossland together to celebrate old-fashioned community. “That is what’s important to Bobbi, her community,� she said. “She is an inspiring example of dedication, commitment and service to this community.� In 1978, Lafond and Deyanne Davies started Rangers together, a group for grades 10, 11 and 12 high school girls. Davies recalled she had wondered to herself at the time: “Why would Bobbi, who is so busy

with her family and her community stuff... take one night a week to work with other people’s teenagers? (Bobbi) responded by saying that she wanted to do something for herself for a change.� Senator Nancy Greene-Raine awarded the medal. She was also the one who called LaFond last week to tell her she would be honoured. Greene-Raine noted the influence LaFond had on her large family and the community. “Our country grew with big families and nowadays we don’t have big families anymore,� she said. “I think we’ve become a little bit selfish. It’s truly wonderful to see a family like yours, a family that is so strong.�

LOCAL HIGHWIRE ACT

Rossland, Trail at odds over cost sharing FROM PAGE 1 But Rossland Mayor Greg Granstrom said the city could not reveal its hand right away on the matter as to what position they were taking. “We have a position that we think is legal and plausible,” he said. “But, in the end, we’d like everybody to sit down and discuss this in person, and not have to go through the (legal) channels.” Lois-Leah Goodwin, executive director of Intergovernmental Relations and Planning under the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, was appointed as the dispute resolution officer last month to help settle the matter of who pays for what in the delivery of regional sewer service between Trail, Rossland and Warfield. Goodwin was required to review the matter and, under the Community Charter, direct the dispute to binding arbitration. Trail city council had notified the province in late May it wanted to engage in the process of arbitration with the City of Rossland to determine the correct percentages of shared costs for sewage service in the Greater Trail region. For four years the question of who pays what portion of the cost of sewer service among Trail, Rossland and Warfield has been booted around like a political football. Trail currently pays close to 70 per cent of the regional budget following a formula created in the late 1960s, based mostly on population and projected growth.

FROM PAGE 1 entrance of the village, where Scotch broom has started to take a foothold. Although it is unclear what action council will take at this moment, the village was eager to stay in the loop. In the interim, councillors have been urged to review additional information about relevant bylaws pertaining to invasive plants. “They do some work for the regional district and keep us in the loop as to their activities and possible expansion of the invasive species in our area,” concluded chief administrative officer Lila Cresswell Tuesday morning. In addition, the Fruitvale Creek bed at First Street has Himalayan balsam (also known as Policeman’s Helmet) and Japanese Knotweed in various locations along the highway shoulders and along Beaver Creek. Japanese knotweed has been dubbed as toxic waste in the United Kingdom, and Vogel said there is some concern about it in Canada. It has the ability to grow through tarmac and pipes, and for some it even impacts mortgage applications.

NDCC union votes in favour of job action THE NELSON STAR Unionized staff at the Nelson and District Community Complex have voted “overwhelmingly” in favour of job action. The members of CUPE sub-local 2262, which represents 55 employees at the arena, swimming pool, and fitness facility, held the strike vote on Saturday afternoon, according to a news release from the union. A majority of members turned out to cast ballots, and all voted in favour of a strike. The union issued 72-hour notice Monday before 4 p.m. Their employer is the Regional District of Central Kootenay. “No one wants to go down this road, but the regional district has left us little choice,” local president Leford Lafayette said in the statement. “It all comes down to wages, term, and benefits: we asked for

cost of living and minor benefit increases, but they said no.” Lafayette said they have been offered a two-year agreement that expires in six months. Since the last collective agreement expired a year and a half ago, the sides have met several times, but been unable to reach a mediated settlement, he added. They’ve been bargaining since February and last met with mediator Mark Atkinson Thursday, but weren’t able to reach a deal. “They came after every cornerstone of our collective agreement: seniority, hours of work provisions, and full-time/ part-time designations,” Lafayette said. “We spent a long time negotiating back and forth on language.” He said the regional district offered wage increases of one per cent in each of the two years, but no benefit increases.

“If the union were to agree to this, we’d be behind the cost of living by three per cent over the last three years.” The union is seeking a three-year contract with a cost of living hike over the term. Lafayette said it’s “quite possible” picket lines could go up, but they don’t intend to shut the facility down entirely or prevent any Nelson Leafs games. “We would be trying everything in our power not to do that,” he said. “We’re working to minimize any impact we would have on the hockey season. We’re going to try our darndest that no games are affected.” CUPE 2262 members include fitness technicians, lifeguards, aquafit and swimming instructors, as well as maintenance, custodians, customer service reps, and child minders. Management at the complex could not immediately be reached for comment.

PROVINCIAL WINTER MAKES FIRST APPEARANCE

New pipeline deal will feed LNG exports BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

Two months after opening its newest natural gas processing plant near Dawson Creek, Spectra Energy has announced a partnership that will more than double its B.C. capacity with a large-scale pipeline to Prince Rupert. Texas-based Spectra and British Gas (BG) Group plc announced Monday a development agreement to construct an 850-km large-diameter pipeline connecting its hub of operations near Fort St. John with proposed liquefied natural gas facilities near Prince Rupert. The pipeline would connect vast shale gas resources in the Montney formation near Fort St. John and the Liard, Horn River and Cordova Embayment shales near Fort Nelson. Its capacity of 4.2 million cubic feet per day compares to Spectra’s existing gas handling capacity of 2.4

million cubic feet per day. BG Group has optioned an 80-hectare site in the Ridley industrial area owned by the Prince Rupert Port Authority for a possible liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility. Operating gas production facilities in 20 countries, BG is currently building a new LNG plant in Australia. The joint announcement, the companies said “early conceptual routes” have been developed, with consultation planned for affected routes. The project timeline is to begin construction by 2015 and complete the pipeline by 2020. Spectra’s B.C. operations started as Westcoast Transmission Corp. with construction of B.C.’s first gas processing plant on the Peace River at Taylor in 1949. It still operates that plant, and pipeline network that supplies natural gas to the B.C. Lower Mainland.

Police investigate ‘free baby’ ad BY KYLE SLAVIN Victoria News

A classified ad offering a baby, “free to a good home,” has Victoria police officers attempting to find the would-be seller to ensure no children are at risk. The investigation began around 10:30 a.m. Monday after police were made aware of an ad posted on UsedVictoria.com, offering the baby for free with a photo of a young infant attached. “Obviously this is disconcerting,” said Const. Mike Russell. “The first part of me thinks, ‘It must be a hoax.’ “Then you have a sober second thought, ‘You know what? Whether it’s a hoax or not, this needs to be

investigated because we need to ensure there’s no kids at risk here.’” On Monday afternoon Russell said investigators were still trying to track down where the posting came from, but said, “It’s probably not from our jurisdiction; not on the Island.” Erin Richards, marketing coordinator for UsedVictoria, a Black Press-owned website, said they are co-operating with police. “First and foremost, our concern is the welfare of the child and what is in their best interest and that is why we removed the ad immediately after it was posted,” she said. “We have given information to the Victoria Police Department, who are now investigating.”

PEACHLAND

Fire 75 per cent contained but some residents still out of homes THE CANADIAN PRESS PEACHLAND, B.C. - Phil Kachanoski is relieved to be able to set foot inside his house again after a rapidly moving forest fire burned through the countryside near his home in Peachland, B.C., and forced him and roughly 1,500 others to flee. Kachanoski, a 42-year-old dentist, was among the two-thirds of the evacuees who received the all-clear to return home Monday evening, after a tense 24 hours in which flames destroyed four houses and came dangerously close to many others. By Tuesday morning, another 150 were allowed home, leaving 258 on evacuation order. Cool temperatures and periods of rain Monday slowed the fire as crews worked to bring it 75 per cent under control. But officials note the danger isn’t completely gone - 1,300 still remain

on evacuation alert and will have to leave if the fire flares up. Kachanoski, who dropped off a few items at his home before returning to a hotel for Monday night, wasn’t taking anything for granted. “We’re very happy that obviously they had gotten things under control enough that we could go back,” said Kachanoski. “Until they know for sure that they’ve got most of the hot spots out, you’re never out of the clear in B.C.” Those who remained under an evacuation order live near where the fire first began on the northwestern edge of town, in the same subdivision of homes, vineyards and acreages where the four houses were destroyed. The fire started Sunday afternoon in an area on the outskirts of Peachland, a community of about 5,200 people located 380 kilometres northeast Family Co-operative Pre-school Program

of Vancouver. Strong winds caused the fire to spread rapidly, covering three kilometres in a little more than an hour. Four houses, including one on the vineyard where Canada’s first commercially released icewine was born in 1978, were destroyed on the first day of the fire as gusts of wind pushed the flames into the houses. The fire left a mess of charred trees, ash and a coating of red-coloured fire retardant that blanketed homes, roads and fields. The weather helped calm the fire, but the cool temperatures and rain are expected to be replaced by more hot dry weather for the rest of the week. Jim Mottishaw, a forest protection officer with the provincial government, said the hot weather won’t be a problem as long as the winds remain calm, as predicted. “The forecast is for hot, dry weather through to the weekend. That means we’ve

got to secure the lines as quick as we can, and if another wind event comes up hopefully we’ve been able to hold the line,” Mottishaw said in an interview. “Wind is the biggest concern, and because we’ve got containment around a good portion of it and lots of resources, anything that flares up we can jump on it quick. Without wind, things are looking very good.” Forest fires are a perennial concern in the Okanagan Valley, an area where a hot, arid climate can create dangerous conditions. Residents here remember an inferno in late August of 2003 that surrounded Kelowna, about 25 kilometres up the road from Peachland, and forced 27,000 people from their homes. The fire eventually destroyed 239 homes, and left a landscape of bald mountainside directly across Okanagan Lake from Peachland, a constant reminder of the fire threat.

Oilsands reaching pollution limits

Harper heralded as ‘World Statesman of the Year’

THE CANADIAN PRESS

THE CANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON - Industry figures suggest oilsands development will soon push air pollution past limits set out in Alberta’s new management plan for the region. Newly filed regulatory documents for Shell’s proposed Jackpine mine expansion project say two major gases causing acid rain will exceed annual emission limits. Shell’s study concludes sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emission limits will be surpassed if all the approved and planned developments go ahead. The limits came into force this month as part of a plan by the Alberta government’s to balance oilsands development and environmental protection. Environment Minister Diana McQueen said when the plan was introduced that the limits will be legally enforceable. Simon Dyer of the Pembina Institute says the government’s response to Shell’s figures will be the first test of the plan’s credibility.

OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper is being hailed as “World Statesman of the Year� by an American organization that previously feted Jean Chretien and British prime minister Gordon Brown. The Prime Minister’s Office says Harper will travel to New York on Sept. 27 to receive the award from the Appeal of Conscience Foundation. Harper, according to the organization, will be recognized as a “champion of democracy, freedom and human rights.�

The Appeal of Conscience Foundation describes itself as an “interfaith coalition of business and religious leaders (that) promotes peace, tolerance and ethnic conflict resolution.� According to its website, “The foundation believes that freedom, democracy and human rights are the fundamental values that give nations of the world their best hope for peace, security and shared prosperity.�

TORONTO - Three powerful unions representing Ontario teachers and education workers declared war Tuesday against the governing Liberals after a controversial anti-strike bill passed in the legislature. The two biggest unions representing elementary and secondary school teachers are urging their members to withdraw from any voluntary activities as a show of protest of what they’re calling “draconian� legislation. The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation is telling its members not to do any voluntary activities - such as coaching sports teams - on Wednesday. The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario is urging its members not to participate in “any school-based or system level meetings of any kind� on Mondays. They’re calling them “McGuinty Mondays� after Premier Dalton McGuinty, Ontario’s selfstyled “education premier� who is now facing the ire of his former allies who’ve helped him remain in power for nine years. CUPE Ontario, which represents 55,000 workers such as custodians and school secretaries, also opposed the legislation. The unions were also furious after they were asked to leave the legislature shortly after the passage of the bill. The minority Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives teamed up to pass the legislation, which will shortly become law once it receives royal assent. The bill imposes new contracts on thousands of teachers that reins in wages and cuts benefits, such as sick days, for two years. It also gives the government the power, for at least two years, to stop strikes and lockouts.

Cutting ties with Iran is knee-jerk and hypocritical

L

ast week`s decision by the Harper government to break diplomatic ties with Iran was a knee-jerk, hypocritical decision that looks like a sop to “Israel-first, Canada-later” voters in swing ridings. The decision, however, is unlikely to affect the debate in Israel. The decision also seems to help those in the U.S. who are beating the drums for war on Iran. As usual, they pose as champions of freedom. I am no fan of the Mullahs who, since the 1979 revolution, have operated a repressive regime. But they overthrew another repressive regime, run by the Shah, a U.S. puppet. Iran is also surrounded by repressive regimes, also fast friends of the U.S., such as Saudi Arabia. The great sin of the Mullahs was not the repression of Iranians. It was the nationalization of U.S. oil companies. Iran’s oil was controlled by British companies since colonial times. In 1953, the U.S. and Britain overthrew Iran’s democratic government after it nationalized Anglo-Iranian Oil.

They installed the Shah, who promptly reversed the nationalization and transferred most of the oil rights to U.S. companies. After the 1979 revolution, Iran came under siege by the U.S. Had the Mullahs allowed the oil revenues to keep flowing abroad, they would probably have been praised like the Shah, Saudi princes, Hosni Mubarak, Saddam Hussein (while he behaved), and other dictators sponsored by the U.S. Let us turn to some reasons offered by Canada`s Foreign Affairs minister John Baird for cutting ties with Iran. I shall contrast relevant aspects of the U.S. and Canadian record. Baird says that Iran violated the Vienna convention on consular relations. So too has the U.S., blatantly. In 1999, Arizona put to death a German citizen named Walter LaGrand. It did so shortly after the International Court of Justice asked the U.S. to suspend the execution so the court could consider an international complaint by Germany. The U.S. federal government did little to discourage the execution.

VAN HARTEN Troy Media

Later, the international court found that the U.S. had violated the Vienna Convention by failing to give LaGrand, along with others on death row, proper access to consular advice. Baird says further that Iran gives military assistance to Syria’s Assad regime. Not long ago, U.S. and Canadian agencies supplied Syrian Military Intelligence with questions, under torture, for prisoners labeled “terrorist”. Recall also that Saudi Arabia’s government has armed the menacing elements of Syria’s opposition, shortly after it invaded Bahrain to suppress that country’s Arab Spring. Baird says that Iran supports a terrorist organ-

ization, Hezbollah. This is another label. Hezbollah was founded in the 1980s to resist an Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon. Just six countries, led by Israel and the U.S., have classified Hezbollah as terrorist. Whatever Hezbollah’s abuses, they fall well short of, for example, the U.S.backed death squads that terrorized Central America in the 1980s and 1990s. The death squads killed tens of thousands of civilians. And, the death squads recently returned to Central America after the military coup in Honduras in 2009. Nearly every country in the hemisphere condemned the military junta. The Harper government supported it from early days. In 2011, it even inked a trade deal with the Generals. Baird says finally that Iran ignores human rights. On this, Iran has company. Perhaps the most heinous international crime is to wage an unlawful war. The illegal invasion of Iraq led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. It caused untold suffering and destroyed a country. It ruined the status of Iraqi

women, left mass deformities in newborns, and led to another corrupt and repressive regime. Stephen Harper, we should recall, supported the war on Iraq. He gave cover for U.S. right-wingers then, and his government is giving cover for them now on Iran. These examples are not meant to compare Iran, Saudi Arabia, Canada, and the U.S. History is complex, like the world. The point is that Baird’s charges against Iran are vague, simplistic, and easily manipulated. For decades, Canada was respected for its balance and decency in international affairs. We supported peace and diplomacy and were not so beholden to the U.S., let alone the crazed crowd that now dominates the Republican Party. If Canada was an international boy scout, we are becoming the noisy sidekick of a schoolyard bully. Gus Van Harten is a professor at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.

Valley’s community events greatly appreciated As a mother of two children under the age of five, I am writing this letter to express my sincere appreciation for all of the activities our community offers for young children. Our family frequents the downtown play park on a regular basis. It is always a safe, well-kept place for the children to play, meet friends or have a picnic. This was the first year we were able to enjoy all that Beaver Valley May Days has to offer. From the parade, to the entertainment and activities in the

arena, to the new play area near the baseball field, we had thoroughly enjoyed ourselves before lunch time. We very excited about the addition of the Village’s dig dirt area this year. This area, staffed by the Mayor, CAO and public works staff screamed committed community to me. Everyone was having such a great time watching the kids play in a fabulous, unstructured, “get dirty� environment while learning about the machines, which maintain our community. As spring came to an

end and we were planning summer activities, I was thrilled to learn about the Beaver Valley and Montrose summer camp. I quickly picked up the phone to call Kelly at the arena to register my son. Kelly, as always, excitedly answered the phone and provided all of the information I needed. When I asked if I could pay over the phone or should send a cheque on the first day, she indicated the camp was free. I had heard great things about last year’s camp and was fully prepared to pay to have my son attend

this year’s. My son participated in a couple of days of camp and is still talking about it, a month and a half later. I think it is so amazing that we live in a community where events like this are offered on a regular basis. To have them free is a bonus, which ensures equal access to all families. I am proud to live in Fruitvale and thankful our family continues to benefit from everything our area has to offer. Keep up the great work! Bree Seabrook Fruitvale

Place for compassion in courts An editorial from the Winnipeg Free Press The 23-year-old student looter who became the poster child of the Vancouver Stanley Cup riot in June 2011 following the Vancouver Canucks Game 7 Stanley Cup loss to the Boston Bruins caught a break from the judge who sentenced her last week. University of British Columbia student Camille Cacnio, whose notoriety went viral after a widely viewed video posted on Internet websites captured her carrying pairs of stolen pants from the smashed-out storefront of Vancouver clothier Black & Lee Tuxedos, had earlier pleaded guilty to theft. The riot, which caused an estimated $4 million in damage over several blocks of downtown Vancouver, saw rioters smash windows, set cars on fire and loot stores until police in riot gear and on horseback brought crowds under control. When the video and still photos of Cacnio’s theft appeared on the Internet, she turned herself in to the police. She subsequently posted a rambling, 3,500-word apology on the Internet that attempted to explain her actions by saying she was drunk and caught up in mob mentality. Cacnio was, rightly, spared jail by a compassionate judge, who concluded the 15 months of online and mainstream

WEBSITE POLL RESULTS:

media attacks she’d been subjected to since the riot were more than enough to ensure she’d learned her lesson. The Crown prosecutor had sought 15 to 30 days in jail, to be served on weekends. But the judge declined to incarcerate Cacnio. He gave her a suspended sentence, two years’ probation, a daily nighttime curfew and ordered her to perform 150 hours of community service. Although the judge declined to jail Cacnio, he denied her the conditional discharge sought by her lawyer, which would have allowed her to avoid a criminal record. Only a handful of the 140 people facing charges arising from the riot have been sentenced to date. But so far, only Cacnio and one other rioter, who was sentenced to a term of house arrest, have avoided jail. Online reaction to the sentence hasn’t been kind to the judge. Most online bloggers and posters criticize the decision as too lenient. But some judicial compassion was in order. In the months after the Game 7 loss, Cacnio became the favourite target of online “shaming� websites that replayed video of her crime, attacked her at length and received posted comments -consistently negative -- from all and sundry. She lost three jobs due to all the publicity and had to put her education on hold because of harassment

at school. The judge properly took into account the raft of extra-legal consequences she’d suffered prior to pronouncing sentence. The Criminal Code’s sentencing principles were also duly heeded. The Criminal Code expressly provides that a judge must consider all other penalties before ordering incarceration -- particularly in the case of a first-time offender such Cacnio. Judges, except for offences for which Canada’s Criminal Code prescribes a minimum sentence, have fairly broad discretion as to what penalty should be imposed. The Criminal Code also stipulates a sentencing judge must consider certain principles, including that the penalty imposed should be reduced to account for any relevant “mitigating circumstances relating to the offence or offender.� In the 15 months since the Vancouver riot, Cacnio had become a lightning rod for Internet attacks, publicly whipped across cyberspace in blogs, tweets and video postings. The presiding judge was well aware of her celebritydefendant status. Cacnio’s sentence was just and appropriate. It was also tougher than some web critics allow. Long after her name fades from public memory, she’ll continue to live with the stigma and consequences of a criminal conviction.

Orchids named after royal newlyweds and Princess Diana THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SINGAPORE - Prince William and his wife Kate saw an orchid named for them and another for his late mother Princess Diana in Singapore on Tuesday, 15 years after she was to have viewed the flower herself. Diana was due to visit the white orchid named in her honour in 1997, but was killed in a car crash two weeks earlier. William stared at its delicate flowers, saying, “It’s beautiful, it’s beautiful.” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to Singapore Botanic Gardens was their first stop on a nine-day tour of the Far East and South Pacific. Manager Alan Tan Chye Soon said he was preparing for Diana’s visit when the car crash occurred. “It was so sad that she never saw it. It is one of our favourite orchids, and most popular,” he said. “It was like William and Kate are fulfilling her promise today.” The royal couple was also shown an orchid with white and purple blooms that is jointly named for them. Kate wore a pale floral dress to the event. She was carrying an orchid bouquet when she and William greeted staff and spectators at the historic Raffles Hotel later in the day. The couple will also visit the Solomon Islands and Tuvalu in honour of the queen’s Diamond Jubilee marking her 60 years on the throne.

Toronto man presents big cheque to bullied bus monitor Online efforts to raise money for victim’s holiday rakes in over $700,000 THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - A Toronto man’s campaign to give an American grandmother a vacation from a workplace in which she was tyrannized by teenage bullies ended Tuesday with the retired school bus monitor receiving a cheque for $703,000. Karen Klein, 68, of Greece, N.Y., was in Toronto for the ceremony. The funds were presented by Max Sidorov, a 25-year-old nutritionist who felt compelled to help Klein after watching a video of her

fielding profane taunts and outright threats from a group of middle school students during a bus run last June. The cellphone video posted online by a fellow student drew millions of viewers. The video shows Klein trying her best to ignore the boys’ insults. One student is heard taunting: “You don’t have a family because they all killed themselves because they don’t want to be near you.” Klein’s oldest son killed himself 10 years ago. Eventually, Klein appears to break down in tears. The video and what began as a simple campaign to send Klein on holiday brought about much more permanent change, said Sidorov.

LIFESTYLES HEAVY SMOKERS

Tuition fees rising faster than inflation and income, report warns THE CANADIAN PRESS

(AP PHOTO/ACHMAD IBRAHIM)

An Indonesian man smokes a cigarette in Jakarta, Indonesia, Tuesday. Indonesian men rank as the world’s top smokers, with two out of three of them lighting up in a country where cigarettes cost pennies and tobacco advertising is everywhere. A survey released Tuesday found that 67 per cent of all males over 15 years old smoke. The sprawling archipelago ranked second only to Russia overall with a rate of 35 per cent.

Fewer people getting traditional TV service but still use televisions THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - The number of U.S. homes that don’t get traditional television service continues to increase, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have TVs. The Nielsen company said in a report issued on Tuesday that three-quarters of the estimated 5 million homes that don’t get TV signals over the airways or through cable, satellite or telecommunications companies have televisions anyway. Many of these homes are satisfied to use their TVs for games or get programming through DVDs or services like Netflix or Apple TV, said Dounia Turrill, senior vice-president for client insights at Nielsen. The company’s report shows how the nature of TV service is slowly changing. Before the percentage started declining about three years ago, more than 99 per cent of TV homes received the traditional TV signals. Now that has dipped just below 96 per cent. Part of the decline is also economic - service deemed expendable by people struggling to make ends meet, Nielsen said. Because of the changes, Nielsen is considering redefining what it considers a television household

to include people who get service through Netflix or similar services instead of the traditional TV signals, Turrill said. During the first three months of 2012, the average consumer spent about 2 per cent less time watching traditional TV than the previous year, Nielsen said. They more than made up for that by spending more time watching material recorded on DVRs or on the Internet through TVs, computers and mobile devices. The typical consumer spends 14 minutes a day using gaming consoles, although it’s more for owners of Wii, XBox and PlayStation 3, Nielsen said. Many of these devices are also popular sites for accessing video, Turrill said. “The gaming devices are becoming entertainment hubs,” she said. People over age 65 spend nearly 48 hours, on average, watching television each week, Nielsen said. At the other end of the spectrum are teenagers aged 12 to 17, who spend an average of 22 hours per week watching TV. Blacks spend an average of 210 hours per month watching TV, more than whites (nearly 153 hours), Latinos (131 hours) and Asians (100 hours), Nielsen said.

OTTAWA - A new report suggests tuition fees are becoming less affordable for many Canadians, forcing an increasing number of students to take on heavy debt loads. The report from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives shows that since 1990, average tuition and compulsory fees for undergraduates have risen by 6.2 per cent annually - three times the rate of inflation. It now costs, on average, $6,186 a year to study at a Canadian university, and that doesn’t include the cost of books or food or lodging. The left-leaning think-tank adds that extrapolating from past growth and announced government intentions, that number will rise to $7,330 in four years. The findings are in line with other reports on the subject. A recent survey from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants found that setting aside sufficient funds for tuition was becoming increasingly difficult for the average family. Nearly a quarter - almost twice as many as two years ago - reported they were falling behind on saving for their children’s education. Also Tuesday, the Bank of Montreal released a survey showing that 60 per cent of parents who have not opened a Registered Education Savings Plan say they cannot afford to contribute. The CCPA report also shows there is wide divergence in the cost of post-secondary education across the country. It ranges from low-cost provinces such as Newfoundland and Labrador ($2,861) and Quebec ($3,278), to high-cost jurisdictions like Ontario ($7,513) and Alberta ($7,061). In four years, tuition for undergraduates will vary from a low of $2,893 in Newfoundland to a high of $9,231 in Ontario. For Quebec, the report shows fees would have gone up to $4,472 if the recently defeated Liberal government’s controversial proposals for increases were adopted. That would move the province from the second least expensive to third, behind Manitoba and Newfoundland. Using what the CCPA calls its “cost of learning” index, which measures increases in tuition against the rise of income for the average family, the group says university education is most affordable in Newfoundland and Quebec, and least affordable in Nova Scotia and Ontario. Co-author Erika Shaker said the intent of the paper was to track what provincial governments are doing to make higher education more affordable for families of modest means. The findings, she said, show that most provinces have opted not to keep costs down, but rather turn to schemes to offer students loans on favourable terms, or easy repayment options. The problem with that approach, Shaker said, is that 60 per cent of undergraduate students go into the working world with an average debt of $27,000, and that is likely larger if private debt is included. According to Statistics Canada, about half of youth from families with incomes in the top 25 percentile attend university by age 19, compared to less than a third for those from families in the bottom quartile. Shaker says young Canadians are constantly

being warned they must get a university education to have a chance at good jobs, but many provincial governments are off-loading more of the cost of university to families and students. For instance, the proportion of provincial support as a percentage of total university expenditures has declined from 84 per cent to 58 per cent between 1979 and 2009, while tuition has increased from 12 per cent to 35 per cent in that time, the report states.

J. L. CROWE ATHLETICS

A smashing opening BY TIMES STAFF The J. L. Crowe high school sports season gets underway in earnest this weekend, as the Hawks senior girls volleyball team hosts its 40th invitational tournament. High school sports, as well as classes, are back on track after an uncertain year of job action and back to work legislation eventually resulted in a reluctant accord between the BC Teachers’ Federation and the provincial government in June. J. L. Crowe Athletic Director Larry Reid says everything is back to status quo, with parents and teachers taking on voluntary coaching duties for high school sporting teams throughout the year. Volleyball, soccer, and aquatics start up the season and tryouts for junior

and senior boys and girls divisions go this week, with the Grade 8’s starting late this week or early next week. The senior girls tournament is traditionally the first event of the year. The Crowe Hawks will hit the volleyball court against four teams from Mt. Sentinel in Slocan, Selkirk Secondary from Kimberley, Nelson’s L. V. Rogers and Golden Secondary on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, the Hawks play Mt. Sentinel at 2 p.m. and Selkirk at 3 p.m. They face L.V.

Silver for KSYS girls BY TIMES STAFF The Kootenay South rep girls soccer team found a silver lining in Revelstoke on the weekend as they finished second at its annual tournament. The team, which consists of players from Rossland, Trail, Fruitvale, and Castlegar, won three out of four games falling only to eventual champion Kamloops. The girls outlasted Williams Lake 3-2 in the opening match before losing a close game to Kamloops 4-2. However, they bounced back to take down Canmore, Alta. 3-1, and shut out Golden 7-0 on Sunday, a game in which Sarah Pengelly notched a hat-trick.

Veteran players return to Hawks’ Nest BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks have been buoyed by some unexpected returnees from last year’s championship squad as they prepare to open the season Friday in Grand Forks. At the start of training camp it looked as though the Nitehawks would be loaded with first-year players, but with the unexpected return of versatile defenceman Archie McKinnon and standout goalie Zach Perehudoff last week, the lineup received a significant boost. “I would have never expected to get Edwards, McKinnon, and Perehudoff (back),� said Hawks coach and GM Terry Jones. “Arguably you could have said that all three guys were our MVPs in the playoffs last year . . . we’re excited to have them and have them lead our team, that’s for sure.� McKinnon finished last season with two goals and 14 assists, while Perehudoff appeared in 26 games winning 19, with three shutouts, a 2.84 GAA, and .900 save percentage. The pair joins returning veterans forward Ryan Edwards 35-60-95, defencemen Nick Perez 7-25-32, and Arie Postmus 5-17-22. The Nitehawks also added some size in six-foot, 205pound defenceman Walker Sidoni, acquired earlier this year in a trade

with Nelson, and six-foot-five forward Danny Vlanich. As expected, the team is heavily laden with rookies, however, the Hawks will continue to make roster additions as players filter through the Junior A camps. In exhibition matches last week the Nitehawks managed a win and a tie against Nelson, before dropping two 4-2 games to Castlegar and an 8-2 loss to Selkirk College on Sunday, in its third game in three days. “We’re pretty excited about the group of young guys we got,� said Jones. “I think the game against Selkirk College fatigue played a factor, but the games with Castlegar were competitive and was a good test for our players.� Rookies like 18-year-old Brad Gaboury from Grande Prairie, Alta. has impressed the coaching staff with his speed and work ethic over the camp. Jones also said he liked the skill set of defencemen Jaymes Veitch and Jordan Bandura and the character of players such as Taylor Stafford. The Hawks will also retain Connor Brown-Maloski from Kamloops and Trail’s Riley Brandt as their 16-year-old players. “We’re really excited about Connor Brown-Maloski, he brings a lot of skill and intelligence up front for us, and I was really impressed with the tough-

ness and solid play of Riley Brandt. He just kept working and working, and has proven he can get the job done. He’s been a very reliable player.� The Nitehawks are much improved with the injection of the veteran presence, but early results indicate that traditional rival Castlegar Rebels with returning veterans Erik Alden, Stuart Walton, and goalie Jordan Gluck may be the early favourite in the Neil Murdoch Division. “At this point our short term goals are to become a really competitive team and just get the guys playing on the same page and buying into the things we need to do to be successful. It’s too early to say if we’re going to get to that (same) level.’� The Nitehawks played a last exhibition game against Creston Valley last night, and will open the season with a home-and-home series in Grand Forks on Friday against the Border Bruins at 7:30 p.m. and at home at the Beaver Valley Arena Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Nitehawk notes: The line consisting of former Nitehawk Mason Spear, captain Jordan Wood, and former Trail Smoke Eater Logan Proulx combined for eight points in the Selkirk College Saints’ 8-2 victory over B.V. Sunday, with Proulx scoring twice and assisting on two other markers.

on Saturday if a new collective bargaining agreement hasn’t been reached. Donald Fehr, who took over as union head two years ago, said his players are resigned to a work stoppage, which would follow lockouts last year in the NFL and the NBA. Many of those players will gather in Manhattan this week in

this off-season’s biggest show of force. Industry revenue has grown from $2.1 billion to $3.3 billion annually under the expiring deal. Owners asked players to cut their share of hockey related revenue from 57 to 43 per cent, and then modified their offer to 46 per cent during a six-year proposal.

Players are concerned management hasn’t addressed its problems by re-examining the teams’ revenue-sharing format. The sides haven’t had a full bargaining session since Aug. 31 and the strife is threatening regular-season openers scheduled to start Oct. 11, the preseason Sept. 19.

NEW YORK - NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly says the owners and players are both to blame for their failure to reach a new collective bargaining agreement before the Saturday deadline for a work stoppage. Daly wrote in an email to The Associated Press that he hoped both sides would meet before Saturday. “But to this point, we have received no indication that the union has anything new to say to us. And right now, we have nothing new to say to them,” he wrote Tuesday. “It’s unfortunate, but it’s the reality of the situation.” The NHL’s labour contract expires at midnight Saturday night, and a lockout appears certain. It would be the league’s fourth work stoppage since 1992. “Ultimately, we just want to negotiate a fair deal that will give all our clubs an ability to be stable and healthy,” he wrote. “We hoped (and still hope) we can do that without causing any interruption to the upcoming season. Logic would have suggested we would have been able to. The fact that we haven’t yet is extremely disappointing, and is a failure for which we both must share blame.” More than 250 players are set to attend the NHLPA meetings Wednesday and Thursday here to discuss the current state of CBA negotiations. The board of governors will meet Thursday at the NHL offices here and could authorize Commissioner Gary Bettman to proceed with a lockout

Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations officials blitzed the Kootenays over the Labour Day long weekend, looking for infractions like unattended campfires, environmental violations, illegal logging and illegal occupation of Crown land. Locally, the thrust of the enforcement blitz focussed on camping along Lake Revelstoke, reinforcing an initiative to make the patchwork of prime lakeside spots on Crown land more fairly accessible. Setting up a summer camp has long been a summer tradition for locals and visitors alike. Hardcore campers stake out a spot in late spring and occupy it until the fall. Some build semipermanent structures, including snow roofs for campers, cabins, boat docks and even gardens. The situation led to fairness complaints – those who didn’t get there early enough felt shut out of the prime waterfront property. Gerald Hills, the Resource Compliance Supervisor with the Revelstoke-based Columbia Field Unit, said the long weekend blitz reinforced a new system implemented last year. The new policy for Lake Revelstoke — and other similar lakeside Crown land used for camping near Cranbrook and Golden — is a two-week maximum. “Two weeks. You don’t have to go home, but you have to go somewhere else,” Hills told the Times Review. “It just opens up those prime spots [so] someone else can camp there. We’re not saying you can’t camp all summer ... you just can’t camp in one spot.” The issue also extends to a number of backcountry snowmobile or ski sheds in the area. Aside from being illegal, Hills said the issue is the old trailers or campers often fall into disrepair and are then abandoned. The enforcement blitz also uncovered other infractions, including minor instances of illegal logging, unattended campfires, and discharging trailer holding tanks directly into the lake, “It is public land,” Hills said. “We want it to be available for everybody and it’s just not fair when someone takes ownership of a piece that’s everybody’s.”

welcome. So should we go or wait until she is more eager to see us? We don’t want to be labeled as disinterested grandparents, nor do we want to be resented. The joy of meeting our new granddaughter has been diminished by Luella’s attitude. What would you do? -- The Undoubtedly Wicked Stepmother Dear Stepmother: Go. Luella will never be “more eager.” Yes, her hand was forced, but you arranged that, so take advantage. Don’t make this about Luella. It’s about seeing your grandchild. Stay in a hotel if you can manage it. Bring a house gift for the parents, as well

mentioned to him that I would appreciate it. Am I being too sensitive? -- Feeling Insecure and Unappreciated Dear Insecure: Your sensitivity is perfectly understandable, but after 25 years, you need to decide what you can tolerate. Your husband is never going to be Mr. Romance. You might get him to spend more time with you if you schedule activities that interest him. The fact that he comments on other women doesn’t mean he finds you less attractive, only that it’s easier to express these things about strangers than about someone he is close to. If his other qualities make up for these deficiencies, please accept his limitations. Otherwise, consider counseling. Dear Annie: I disagree with your suggestion to “Old in Indiana” that the division of her estate “should be relatively equal.” She has every right to divide her estate as she feels

proper and deserving. The ones who give the least always expect the most. -- Reward the Deserving Dear Reward: Yes, some children deserve more, and parents can do what they like. Our concern is what hap-

pens to the sibling relationships when the parents die and one child inherits more than the others. It’s a recipe for lifelong estrangement, and parents should take this into consideration when making out their wills.

Annie’s Snippet for Grandparents Day (credit Alex Haley): Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children.

as a gift for the baby. Be sweet and pleasant. Some children are simply difficult, and you must deal with them as they are in order to stay in their lives. Dear Annie: I have been married for 25 years. My husband is a wonderful father and provider. The problem is, he never compliments me or shows affection in public, such as a kiss on the cheek or an arm around my shoulder. I can count on one hand the number of times he has told me I look nice, yet he will say that other women are gorgeous. This hurts my feelings and makes me feel insecure. Other people have told me that I am attractive, but apparently not enough for my husband. He has a lot of interests that keep him busy, so we don’t spend much time together. I hate feeling like a nag by asking him to cut back on his hobbies, even though I have

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for 30 years. We each have adult children from previous marriages. One, “Luella,” only wants a relationship when it suits her. We don’t hear from her on Father’s Day, but if you miss something for her, she’s “hurt.” She’s a taker, not a giver. A year ago, Luella had a baby. We asked about visiting, but Luella simply didn’t respond. We offered to help when the baby came home from the hospital, but were told they wanted to “bond as a family,” and we respected that. Finally, in desperation, I put the ball in her court. She didn’t like it one bit, but after a particularly vitriolic email, she finally gave us a date to come visit. Luella lives across the country, and it’s not easy to get there, financially and physically. We would be willing to go if we felt we were

LEISURE

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a perfect day to make long-range plans for vacations, your children, the entertainment world or the hospitality industry. Even play needs planning. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Serious family discussions about real estate or something having to do with securing your family in the future will take place today. Practical results need practical input. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) In one way, you feel lighthearted, but in another way, you feel rather serious-minded. (Go figure.) Fortunately, there are two of you, so you can take turns. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You will like doing financial planning today or devising a budget. You feel frugal and concerned about finances in

your long-term future. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign, flirting with Jupiter and walking in step with Saturn. You feel optimistic about your future, but you’re not counting your chickens before they’re barbecued. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Behind-the-scenes research will go over well today. You’re in the frame of mind to quietly keep looking for the answers you seek. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Ask for advice from someone older or more experienced today. It’s always good to learn from the mistakes of others (and generally cheaper). SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) People in authority will be impressed by how sensible you are today. They might learn details about your private life, but don’t worry -all is well.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day to make long-range plans regarding travel, publishing, the media or anything that has to do with higher education. You’re taking a careful, sensible approach to everything. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You’re in the right frame of mind to clean up loose details of inheritances, insurance matters, taxes and debt.

You won’t overlook anything, and you definitely will take a long-range view of things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Someone close to you has received advice from someone older or more experienced. That’s why this person is prepared to do something to build for the future. You might want to listen. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You can accomplish a lot

at work today because you’re in a serious frame of mind. You have focus, and you’re paying attention to detail. In addition, you’re looking down the road in your future and wondering what might happen. YOU BORN TODAY You are devoted. You have focus, concentration and stamina. Your approach to life is no-nonsense and practical. Your persevering attitude often demands a lot from others. Once you

Black Press helps Reach-A-Reader campaign Buy the Trail Daily Times from an agent or volunteer on the street on Oct. 10 and your donation goes directly to a program in our community. SPECIAL TO THE TIMES The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL), a non-profit charity, joins with Black Press for the second annual Reach-A-Reader campaign on Oct. 10. On Oct. 10, when you buy your local paper from CBAL and Black Press staff and volunteers out on the town, all funds go to supporting literacy programs in that community. “The Reach-A-Reader campaign is an important way for us to promote our region-wide commitment to building literacy skills and healthy learning communities,� said Ali Wassing, CBAL Executive Director. This joint campaign demonstrates Black Press’s dedication to building literacy skills in the communities it serves and helping CBAL stretch its reach. Reading is at the heart of CBAL’s drive to help citizens improve literacy skills, engage in life-long learning and increase their confidence to get involved in the community. “We have 16 coordinators delivering services in 77 communities,� said Desneiges Profili, CBAL Regional Program Manager, West Kootenay and Boundary. “Their work with children, adults, fam-

ilies and seniors to build reading, writing, numeracy, computer and workplace skills is in demand. Fundraisers, such as our Reach-A-Reader campaign, help support communities to meet this increasing need.� CBAL is working hard to expand services to meet growing and changing needs in communities across the region. In addition to regional funding received from Columbia Basin Trust, Selkirk College, College of the Rockies and the Province of British Columbia, local partnerships and fund raising campaigns are critical to developing more communityled programs targeting local needs. The Reach-A-Reader campaign demonstrates this shared commitment. “We partner with businesses, community organizations, libraries, schools and colleges to help meet demand for our services,� said Betty Knight, Regional Program Manager, East Kootenay. “Getting the communities involved in supporting us through the partnership with Black Press and the Reach-A-Reader campaign takes our message to the heart of the communities we serve.� Over the last 10 years, CBAL has delivered an average of 230 programs to 7000 participants each year. Positive feedback, living examples of the benefits and community response has been very supportive. Participants can choose from a variety of programs such as: Love 2 Learn, Young Parents Education Program, Cyber Seniors and English as a Second Language. You can make a difference in your local

Resort Municipality Infrastructure Fund. With that money the society was able to hire a professional to build the trail. Jeff Cook of Cornerstone Excavating then designed and built the rest of the project. Other supporters were the Kimberley Nordic Club, City of Kimberley and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. Route markers are expected to be installed this fall and trailhead signs will be put in place in spring of next year - just in time for the first full season on the trail.
