Suspicious man in van offers girl a ride

Proudly serving Williams Lake and the Cariboo-Chilcotin since 1930

Jousting jest

The Williams Lake RCMP are investigating what they describe as a suspicious occurrence. Last week, an 11-year-old girl was approached by an adult male who was unknown to her. Police say the male was driving a full sized black van and pulled in alongside the girl and offered her a ride to school. The young girl responded appropriately, saying “no,” and then quickly walked away toward her school. She was unharmed. The van is described as a full-size, black, older-model van, with all windows tinted and a broken tail light. Police are reminding students to be vigilant and walk in pairs if possible. If a related incident occurs, the police encourage that person to  immediately tell an adult (parent/teacher) or someone else they trust immediately. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Williams Lake RCMP.

Williams Lake Stampede Princess Terris Billyboy graciously loaned the use of her horse to rodeo clown JJ Harrison during a break in the regular rodeo action at the BCRA Finals Rodeo in Quesnel this past Sunday afternoon. Then she climbed on behind Stampede Queen Alexis Forseille, riding double on Forseille’s horse as the girls participated in a round of full-rodeojousting (using tubular floating devices as lances) in a bout versus the rodeo clown, It was a battle that closed in a draw as no rider was brought down (thank goodness)!

Fringe fire protection options presented Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Cariboo Regional District rural residents living in the Williams Lake fringe fire protection area learned of options for new fire agreements at a community meeting held Sept. 13 in the Gibraltar Room at the Cariboo Memorial Complex. The 250 people in attendance heard a bylaw needs to go to the CRD board on Oct.4 and a referendum has to take place some time in November. “The province is currently taxing you for fire protection services and has said that they aren’t going to do that anymore so we have to make a decision,” CRD chief administrative officer Janis Bell said. New agreements will need to be put in place because the present ones will expire on Dec. 31.

The new rate offered by the city for people under the Williams Lake Fire Department is $130 per $100,000 of residential assessment. Under present agreements residents are paying either $199, $102 or $191, depending which agreement they are under. Residents accessing the Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department, under the new agreements, will pay $111 per $100,000 of assessed value, while under the 150 Mile House Volunteer Fire Department the rate would be $68 per $100,000 of assessed value. “The current formula only uses residential assessment to calculate who is going to pay what. It disregards the fact that there is an industrial tax base and a business tax base. The proposed new agreement considers all of that. It considers the entire tax base as one tax base, regardless of the one assessment base,

regardless of where the boundaries of the regional district are,” Bell said. “It isn’t costing any less money for the city’s fire department. It just means the rural taxpayers are going to pay less.” To be prudent, the CRD will probably set the rate at $140, to build in a bit of leeway, Bell added. A map prepared by the CRD indicated areas where residents could opt for protection under Wildwood or 150 Mile House; however, Bell said residents are required to be within 13 kilometres of a fire hall to realize reduced reductions with their fire insurance. “There’s only a certain segment of the population that has the option to go with one of the other fire departments,” Bell said, explaining if a number of people opted out of being covered by Williams Lake, then the rate would increase to about $140

for everyone else. People who can’t be serviced by Wildwood or 150 Mile House, and who choose not to remain with Williams Lake, will have to go without fire protection, or accept to without it temporarily until residents can start up a rural fire department. The CRD estimated a new fire hall would cost property owners $100 per $100,000 of assessed value. That amount is based on land, a building, new pumper truck and equipment, amortized over a period of 20 years, chief financial officer Scott Reid explained. Esler resident Bud Walters recalled helping organize rural fire departments on Haida Gwaii and Vancouver Island, and said the local situation is problematic. See QUESTIONNAIRE Page A2

Mine panel invites public comment The federal review panel for the proposed New Prosperity gold-copper mine project invites public comment on the draft hearing procedures and confidentiality procedures. The panel invites persons or groups who wish to participate in all aspects of the review during the public hearing to apply for interested party status. The panel invites written comments on the proposed hearing procedures, which detail how the upcoming public hearing will unfold, as well as input on the confidentiality procedures, the process for requesting that information be submitted to the panel in confidence. The panel is seeking input

from aboriginal groups, the proponent, the public and other participants on both these documents. The panel is proposing to hold three different types of hearing sessions during the public hearing. General hearing sessions are proposed to be held in Williams Lake to provide an opportunity for public input into the review in this central location. Community hearing sessions will be held to allow members of the local communities to express their views to the panel in an informal setting. The panel will also hold topic-specific hearing sessions in Williams Lake to allow opportunity for experts to present technical

information. The general and community sessions will provide an opportunity for comments from the public and Interested Parties. At the topic-specific sessions, members of the public may attend as observers but the panel will allow only those who are granted Interested Party status to participate in the proceedings. The panel has determined the process for applying for interested party status. While the panel will allow opportunity for general public input within the environmental review, only those with interested party status will be permitted to participate in all aspects of the review dur-

ing the public hearing. Participants who wish to be registered as an interested party must submit an application to be designated an interested party by the panel. The directions for applying for interested party status are available on the online public registry. Once the panel has made its decisions, the list of Interested parties will be posted on the public registry. Interested party applications, written comments on the hearing procedures and on the confidentiality procedures must be submitted by Sept. 28, 2012. All applications and comments on the procedures will be made public through the online regis-

try. Forward your application and written comments to the attention of Livain Michaud, panel manager, at NewProsperityReview@ceaa-acee. . The application for interested party status, the hearing procedures, the confidentiality procedures along with more information on this project are available on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry at www., registry number 63928. Taseko Mines Ltd. proposes the construction and operation of a large open pit gold-copper mine development, approximately 125 kilometres southwest of Williams Lake.

“When I look at the map the CRD has what I see is a logistics nightmare. We have the Esler area, we have a Dog Creek area, and we have a Fox Mountain area that are completely separate and would require three new fire halls.” One fire hall couldn’t service Esler and Dog Creek unless a highway was built between Thunder Mountain and Mountview School, Walters said. Monica Lachapelle

from Hub International Barton Insurance Brokers told the crowd some insurance companies require people to live within eight kilometres of a fire hall; others allow for 13 km. She also said rates don’t change if a resident is served by a volunteer fire department or the Williams Lake fire department. “The insurance company isn’t distinguishing between which fire hall; if it’s within the required distance your rate stays the same.” Lachapelle explained

within city limits, people living near fire hydrants might pay $500 for insurance, in a fringe area they might have fire hall protection and pay $1,000. No fire protection could cost $2,000, she said. To help frame the referendum questions, the CRD has created a questionnaire, requiring feedback by Sept. 20 because the board will meet to go over the results on Sept. 21. Depending on responses, there could be one or three separate

questions on referendum day, Bell said. “If there seems to be a fairly strong majority of the people that could go to Wildwood or 150 that prefer that, and a clear indication that’s their preference, then we would structure the referendum accordingly so they didn’t even vote on the issue of Williams Lake.” After the meeting Area E director Byron Kemp said he was pleased with the turnout and the presentation done by the CRD staff. “I don’t think every-

one can agree. In my area, however, we need the Williams Lake fire department and fire service. From my point of view right now, I don’t think we can afford to put in our own fire department, unless we’re going to expand out further into Chimney Valley and the Flett Road area, which we looked at back in the late 90s,” Kemp said. Information about the options and the questionnaire are available at or by calling 250-3923351.

Child struck by falling tree The Williams Lake RCMP responded to a number of calls on the weekend, including a report of a child being struck by a tree. • On Sept. 15, at about 3:37 p.m., the Williams Lake RCMP received a report of a single vehicle incident on Hodgson Road at Birch Lane. Police say a black Toyota rolled down Hodgson Road almost hitting another vehicle.  The driver of the vehicle that was rolling out of control got out of his vehicle and left the scene in another vehicle. Police attended the scene and initiated an impaired driving investigation.  The matter is still under investigation. • Later, at about 6 p.m., police were dispatched to a complaint of a collision between two vehicles in the parking lot of Save On Foods. One of the vehicles had been struck by a vehicle that had rolled approximately 100 feet. The driver had put the parking brake on but failed to engage the transmission. As a result, the  vehicle rolled and struck another  parked vehicle and the building. No one was injured. • On Sept. 16 at 11:26 a.m.  police received a complaint of an assault that had occurred sometime overnight  near Deep Creek. Bear spray had been discharged in a residence and there was an assault. The matter is still under investigation

by police. • On Sept. 16 at 2:17 p.m. police responded to a  report  that a  family was biking in front of a residence on Western Avenue in Williams Lake when  a child was  hit by a falling tree. After arriving, police found the child was on the sidewalk lying with her head and chest on her mother’s lap. The child was conscious and alert, police say. Emergency Medical Services arrived and transported the child to Cariboo Memorial Hospital. The resident of the house where the incident occurred was in the process of falling a free on his/her property; however, the tree fell toward the road just as the child was biking past. The tree also struck a pedestrian walk sign and some of the branches hit  the child  on the back of the head. There was some damage to her helmet  but otherwise she appeared she was shaken but unhurt, police say. • On Sept. 16 at 9:51 p.m.  police responded to a report that a residence on Fourth Avenue had been broken into while  the  owner  was away. When returning, the owner noticed the basement door was open and  basement lights were on. The residence was cleared and nothing appeared to be touched or missing.  The RCMP also responded to a number of bear complaints. (See story on this page). A3

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Bear complaints continue to keep the RCMP and local Conservation Officer Service busy. Between Sept. 14 and 16, 17 bears were destroyed in the Williams Lake and Quesnel areas. On Sept. 15, conservation officers responded to bear complaints near Westcoast Road. Sgt. Len Butler of the BC Conservation Service in Williams Lake confirms a black bear sow and three cubs were put down as a result. “The bears had been getting into garbage and ripping sheds apart

The city placed a bear warning sign on a path at Scout Island Sept. 12. The Conservation Officer Service put in a bear trap on the same day but has since removed it, having seen no new evidence of a bear. and having too many confrontations with people in the area,” he says. Around 9 p.m. Sept. 15, officers responded to an alleged black bear attack of a teenager near the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club near Fairview Drive. “We interviewed the

young male and learned he had gone into a camp in the woods at night in the dark. He heard some noises and when he looked up he saw a bear in the tree above the camp. The bear made some threatening gestures and a lot of noise, but the teen took off,” Butler says,

adding the teen was not attacked. The conservation officers went back into the woods with the teen and destroyed the bear that was still up in the tree. “We didn’t take any chances in case there was more to the story.” Many people are

asking why the bears aren’t being relocated because of what they’re seeing in the Lower Mainland, and Butler says that’s a fair question. During his 30-plus years as a conservation officer, Butler has seen relocation doesn’t work. “We used to relocate all bears and generally they come back. When a bear becomes habituated we have no other recourse.” There are so many cows and cubs this year, and it’s catching the conservation office off guard. “Usually it’s the young male boars that are in town roaming around.”

Cariboo firefighters sent to the U.S. Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Thirty-seven firefighters from the Cariboo Fire Centre were deployed in trucks to Omak, Wash-

ington on Sept. 15 to help fight fires. Fire information officer Jenny Fremlin says the firefighters were joined by eight single resource personnel who

will perform various functions. “We always send at least one resource person who will act a liaison,” Fremlin says. The marshalling point

will be in Omak and from there it will be dependent on where resources are needed. At this point there are no fires of concern in the Cariboo region, while

the cause of the small fire in the River Valley Trail across the creek from the area known as the ashtray that took place Sept. 6 remains under investigation.

Help offered for beach cleanup Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Alex Miller with Community Corrections in Williams Lake might be able to help with Scout Island beach cleanup. He’s always looking for community work placements for people who owe community work to the courts, so when he heard from Coun. Danica Hughes about problems with goose droppings at the beach over the summer, he made the offer. “We’ve done some garbage cleanup before, and had people

do some hillside cleanup, depending on the weather and safety of the area. If it’s OK with the city and with Scout Island, we could send some people over there,” Miller said. During a report to council at its committee of the whole meeting Sept. 11, general manager of planning and operations Geoff Goodall said the city wasn’t as diligent as it should have been about cleaning the beach and adjacent grass last summer and will focus more of its attention on the beach in 2013. “Geese are definitely

a problem as they fly in and graze on the grass near the beach and we have no means of cleaning up the grass. Years ago we tried a fence on the beach; that didn’t work. It would seem the number of geese is increasing and staff is having difficulty keeping up with maintenance,” Goodall said, adding the city has ordered a number of swan decoys that will be placed on the grass for next spring. When residents expressed concern about the abundance of goose droppings on the beach after resident Brenda

Ballas wrote a letter to the editor to a local news media outlet about the problem, people volunteered one day in August to clean the beach. The group raked for a little more than an hour and removed 18 20-pound bags from the area. Coun. Surinderpal Rathor described Scout Island as a “jewel in the community” that needs to be kept clean. “It should be made a priority. Swans will help, but there should be no question when it comes to cleaning. Whatever it takes.”

Forestry our greatest legacy

Our interests come last



efore technology shrunk our world, individual rights and welfare meant some-

French Connection Diana French


Mass product i o n , m a s s c o m munications, mass ev-

erything changed that. Today, individuals don’t count for much.  Global interests come first, then the “good of the nation,� with provincial interests coming next.  Local governments are in there somewhere but individual rights and welfare are at the bottom of the political pile. For instance, global interests are number 1 with the Enbridge pipeline proposal given that U.S., Chinese, French, Thai, Korean and Norwegian corporations (and maybe others) have vested interests (megabucks) in our gas and oil industries. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has indicated Canadian interests overrule provincial interests.  Premier Christy Clark is making noises but the concerns of local governments, including First Nations, are low on the list, and tough titty on the individuals who live along the pipeline and tanker routes. We already have the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which let corporations  sue nation states when they don’t like the rules. Canada has been sued, and has lost, a number of times. Canada is now negotiating to join the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), described as “bigger bolder and badder� than anything yet in terms of corporate rule. It could get rid of whatever sovereignty we have left. In the late 1990s a similar plan,  the Multinational Agreement on Investment (MAI) was defeated by world-wide public outrage. In spite of Facebook and Twitter, TPP seems to be going unnoticed. I realize that as the planet gets crowded we have to sacrifice some of the individual freedoms we think we deserve. More people mean more rules. And, as a resource-rich country, Canada should share our resources. But who are we sharing them with?  “Global� interests are corporate interests. Our sharing enhances the pocketbooks of their shareholders, not necessarily the lives of the ordinary people of the world, or even ours. Is this a good thing?

Our Viewpoint

Tough test ahead Despite the brave faces over the mass exodus of several B.C. Liberal MLAs, including some high-profile cabinet ministers, Premier Christy Clark and the remaining members of her caucus have to be quaking in their boots on the inside. Two of the top contenders in the leadership race — George Abbott and Kevin Falcon — are not following the anointed premier into the May 2013 election. They are not alone as there are many other government MLAs who either retired earlier, or have also decided to not run again. While some of the B.C. Liberals opponents liken it to “rats abandoning the sinking ship,� we don’t believe that’s necessarily the case, although a feeling of doom may have figured into the decision-making process. Would Abbott or Falcon be leaving politics if they had won the leadership race? Not likely. However, both these men will likely have much more productive careers in the private sector than they would toiling as politicians. A lot of these retiring MLAs have had long and busy political careers in public service in both the municipal and provincial sectors. Many are tired and they want some

time for themselves and their families. A lot of them were beaten up over the Harmonized Sales Tax, and after pondering their future during the summer, have decided it’s time to hang ’em up. Clark wanted to know what her caucus members’ intentions were going into the provincial election and she found out in no uncertain terms. She had to build a new and winning team if she was going to be elected as premier at the polling stations next year. Certainly, her reassuring words during the cabinet shuffle announcement that this was a “renewed cabinet ... with a renewed commitment to our priorities� ring a little hollow when we look at her restoration project. Clark had to go with the cabinet ministers with the most experience in the key ministries, and she had to even bring in people who had been banished from the inner circle to shore up the inner sanctum. It will be interesting to see how the BC Liberal Party’s resiliency stands up to this current test. It definitely won’t roll over and play dead. — Ken Alexander

he Cariboo-Chilcotin has certainly felt the effects of the mountain pine beetle outbreak. Over the last 13 years, the outbreak has affected an estimated 18.8 million hectares of forest in our province. At times this haunting truth is the focal point of B.C. forestry discussions. Sometimes we forget MLA that B.C. Musings forestry Donna Barnett is, and will continue to be, our greatest legacy. Sept. 18 to 24 is National Forestry Week and it is our opportunity to encourage greater awareness and recognize the importance of Canada’s forests to our nation and province. Our forestry sector is a major contributor to the economy — accounting for more than 53,000 direct jobs which support families all around the province. Forest product exports totaled $9.95 billion in 2011 — a 31 per cent increase from the low point in 2009. B.C. produces more lumber certified to environmental standards than any other region in the world, and we have 53 million hectares certified to one of three internationally recognized sustainable forest management certification standards. Not only that, but British Columbia plants an average of 200 million seedlings each year and is on track to plant the seven-billionth seedling in spring 2013. That’s a silviculture record we can be proud of. B.C. forests are the livelihood of many families, and they’re also our most prized playgrounds. British Columbia’s forests are managed for a multitude of values including fish and wildlife habitat, water quality, cultural heritage and recreation, to name just a few. With more than 1,200 recreation sites and 800 trails around the province, why not get out there and connect with our magnificent land while the weather’s still warm? Happy National Forestry Week! Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

The killing season is here — the grizzly bear trophy hunt. There are two sides to this ongoing battle — those who take part in the hunt and those who could not imagine killing something so magnificent and thereby pay tribute by wanting it to live to see, and be seen, another day. What side are you on? For me it is and always will be the side that speaks against, petitions and rallies to stop this horrific fall custom. A media outlet said Scott Ellis, executive director for the Guide Outfitters Association, “doesn’t

know the difference between sport and trophy hunting.� Are we really expected to believe him, a man who holds such a high position within the association? But in case it is true I will cite right from Webster’s dictionary. Sport — a pastime requiring skill and physical exertion. Clearly sitting in a boat and shooting grizzlies as they graze on sedge at the edge of the water requires neither skill, nor physical exertion. It is simply a trophy hunt. And if that is still not clear enough, biologists have proven since coastal grizzlies’ diet consists largely of salmon. Their meat

does not taste good leaving them undesirable as a food source. So if they are not killed for consumptive purposes you are left with only one other use — to decorate a wall or floor. We live in a beautiful province that can still brag about its diverse wildlife and wild places, which generates millions of eco-tourism dollars annually. But as long as government allows this hunt to continue that is in jeopardy. In my lifetime I have seen abundant species of wildlife simply diminish and in some cases completely disappear. It is a loss for the human race when Mother Earth’s crea-

tures are hunted to near extinction, and if it were not for some First Nations’ communities on the coast, Pacific Wild and BC Coastal Bear and Wolf Patrol, who are on the frontline with their tirelessly effort opposing this barbaric hunt, this story might have the same ending as the Plains buffalo. The time is here. The hour is upon us to have our voice heard and heard loud. Stop trophy hunting once and for all. Do not allow money or self-centred elitists to steer the course yours and my wildlife will take. Sandra Lynch Williams Lake

Interior crisis line and service updated Editor: Recently, several Interior region crisis lines amalgamated services to become the Interior Crisis Line Network with a new toll free contact number: 1-888353-2272. According to recent stats, across B.C. people speak to a crisis line worker every three minutes.

Previously, the Interior Crisis Line provided more than 15,000 calls and 315,000 minutes of support each year. Locally, the Williams Lake Crisis Line was only able to provide service after hours and 24hour service on weekends and holidays. Now, being part of the Interior Crisis Line Network, we are able to provide 24/7 service.

In order to continue being a part of the Interior Crisis Line Network, we need to grow our volunteer base. We will start our next volunteer training on Oct. 11 and we are looking for people 19 years or older, who are good listeners and are teachable. If you are interested in being a part of this new, innovative ser-

vice, please call Janice at 250398-8220, ext. 2040 or Penny at 250-398-8220, ext. 2031. A crisis line application can be obtained at the CMHA office at 51 Fourth Ave. or online at http:// Janice Breck Crisis and counselling programing manager CMHA

Obama’s plan to stimulate economy failed Editor:  Dick Harris, our member of parliament, when recently asked about the American election, commented that he was a Conservative and therefore he supported Mitt Romney. Where should the rest of us stand? I think we as Canadians need to be very interested in the American election. There is no question that the American economy plays a very important role in the Canadian and world economies. With the U.S. economy in the doldrums many of our manufacturers that supply the U.S. market, including our forest industry, normally employing thousands, have suf-

fered through a number of years of American recession, particularly in the home building market. Â Being a president of the United States is somewhat like being the pilot of an airliner. A wrong decision could be catastrophic. President Barack Obama is the pilot of the American economy. He is a wonderful, well-liked guy. He can soothe your ear with a terrific speaking style. He could win the next election by his appeal to the millions of voters who depend on him for what I call his socialistic policies. Millions of Americans love what he has done for them. For this reason he will be very hard to beat. On the other hand, in my opin-

ion, regarding the economy Obama has been an unmitigated failure. He had two full years to freely reign where the Democrats controlled the presidency, the congress, and the senate, and yet today the American economy remains totally stalled, with millions unemployed and thousands still losing their homes. Obama’s hopes of stimulating the economy by massive investment in infrastructure and alternate energy projects have failed miserably. Many government-sponsored alternate energy projects have cost the U.S. billions in bankruptcies. In fewer than four years under President Obama the U.S. national debt has risen almost double the

total debt during former president George W. Bush’s eight -year term and Iraq war years.  The Republicans, on the other hand, do carry the baggage of the Bush presidency. A questionable Iraq war that cost trillions of dollars coupled with bank failures. World wide, Bush became tagged as an unlikeable character. In as much as people like Obama many people did not like Bush. Bottom line, whether you like the Republicans or not, four more years of nice-guy Obama could be the last thing the U.S., Canada, and the world needs or wants. Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Please be respectful of handicap parking Editor: As a handicapped person I am particularly aware of the misuse of the handicap parking service. Handicap spaces are wider than the ordinary parking space. This extra room is necessary if one must load or unload a wheelchair.

If no such space is available one must find two adjoining spaces and there is no guarantee that the adjoining space will be empty when it is time to reload the wheel chair. Also, just because you have a handicap logo in your window doesn’t mean you are entitled to

use a handicap space. Only if the handicapped person will be getting in or out of the vehicle are you entitled to use it. It is also helpful if cars that park next to the handicap vehicle don’t overcrowd too closely. The last time we used a handicap space the car parked next to

us was over the line and we didn’t have room enough to load the chair. The handicap parking is much appreciated by those of us who much use it and we appreciate your respect for this convenience. Margie Kaufman Williams Lake

The Williams Lake Terry Fox Run Sunday saw 94 participants run, walk and wheel either a five- or 10-kilometre route beginning at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Here Deena Williamson (left) and daughter Kyleigh Williamson (right), who also led the warmup, lead the group of runners out of the starting block.

Roberts takes fourth at strongman Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake strongman John Roberts took fourth in the super heavyweight division at the Kamloops’ Strongest Man competition. Roberts, in his first strongman competition, ran the gamut of eight events Sept. 8, battling gruelling 31 C heat and six other competitors in the process. “It was a really, really hot, successful day,� Roberts said. “I’m ecstatic [with my result]. I’m going to keep pursuing it.� Strongman combines strength, speed and, most importantly, technique, pushing athletes and their bodies to the limit through a series of strength challenges. Throughout the course of the event Roberts flipped an 830-pound tire 60 feet, lifted a 225-pound log over his head, pulled a 50,000pound truck with a harness 35 feet, walked 50 feet with two

275-pound weights per hand, did a yolk walk with 500 pounds for 50 feet, circled the Conan wheel for a combined 450 pounds per rotation and lifted a 275-pound atlas stone. His training partner, Williams Lake’s Blair Fisher — also a Canadian powerlifting record holder — injured his ankle during the tire flipping event and was forced out of the competition. Roberts said the event was excruciatingly difficult. “I did not expect it,� he said. “It was absolutely insane. The truck pull was the third event and after that one, especially with the heat, it was almost unbearable. They kept pulling out all this weight and putting it on for the super heavies — they were throwing weight on everything — and it got to the point where I was like ‘I don’t know if I can do this,’ but I kept going ... It was just a matter of mind over matter.� Roberts added he’s going to con-

Lakecity students toured Europe this summer Sharon Smith Special to The Tribune A group of students from Williams Lake Secondary School and Columneetza Secondary School as well as some adults spent 20 days touring Europe this summer. For many of the young people it was their first time flying, and for most their first time being overseas. We travelled with EF Tour (Education First Tours) and our amazing tour guide was Lindsey who was with us 24/7. She looked after all the details and made sure we had a great time. We began our tour in London, England and quickly learned how to use the London Underground or “tubeâ€? to get around. Our group was amazing as they learned to navigate the city of London during their free time. We saw the highlights of London including the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. One evening we did the Jack the Ripper tour walking through the streets where these horrific crimes occurred. Who knew that learning about history could be so fascinating? We then took the high-speed Euro-star Train under the English Channel and all the way to Paris in just a few hours. Paris did not disappoint as we saw the highlights of this world-famous city. We spent time at Notre Dame Cathedral, toured the Louvre Museum where we saw the famous Mona Lisa, went up the Eiffel Tower, saw the Arc de Triomphe, walked along the Champs-Elysees and took a boat ride down the Seine River at night. What a magical way to see this beautiful, romantic city. We went to Versailles, the summer palace of Louis XIV, the Sun King and marvelled at the beautiful gardens and opulent dĂŠcor of this palace. Next it was on to Switzerland and the town of Lucerne. It was a beautiful, sunny day when we took a boat ride down Lake Lucerne and rode the steepest cog railway in the world to the top of Mount Pilatus. The air was clear and cool as we hiked more than 6,387 feet up in the sky. Then it was on to Italy and the city of Florence, the birthplace of the Renaissance. We enjoyed seeing the statues, churches and artwork as well as eating some of the best gelato in the world. Then we travelled south to Assisi, where St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, lived. This was a quaint, little town on the top of a hill with a view that was glorious. Our next stop was Rome, where we toured the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon, and Trevi Foun-

the water and then got lost as we walked through the maze of bridges and canals in this unique city. Austria was our next stop where we visited Innsbruck, with its amazing winter sports for skiers, snowboarders and ice mountaineers. See HISTORY Page A13

Library film nights begin Wednesday Caroline Derksen Special to The Tribune The Williams Lake Cariboo Regional District Library’s National Film Board fall program begins Wednesday, Sept. 19 with the film The Mystery of Mazo de la Roche directed by Maya Gallusstarting. The film starts at 7 p.m. in the library’s program room. Mazo de la Roche was a mystery throughout

most of her life and remains so today, 50 years after her death. The most basic details of her biography — her name, her birth date, her family history, her sexual orientation — are all, to some degree, points of contention. Her autobiography, through its omissions, raised rather than answered questions; her very tombstone carries misinformation. 
What is known is that Mazo de la Roche trans-

formed herself from an obscure Canadian writer into one of the most widely read and internationally renowned authors of her day when, in 1927, at the age of 48, de la Roche created the Whiteoak family and their familial manse, Jalna. 
The  Jalna saga, a 16-book family tapestry, towers above all her other work. The series has sold at least 11 million copies in 93 languages, has been adapted for film,

stage and television, and achieved international popularity out of all proportion to its author’s expectations. The intensely private Mazo de la Roche was made a public figure, whether she liked it or not. 
Mazo’s lifelong companion was her second cousin and “adopted sister� Caroline Clement. Naturally, their relationship engendered much speculation during their lives and after, but the

questions are not limited to their possible romantic affiliation. 
 The Mystery of Mazo de la Roche uses both dramatic and documentary techniques to untie the tangled life of this compelling woman. The film explores her uncommon family life and reveals the secrets behind the extraordinary partnership  that allowed the  Jalna  saga to grow into the phenomenon it is today.

History studied on tour Continued From Page A12 Then to Neuschwanstein Castle, built by Mad King Ludwig. This fairy-tale castle was the model for Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty castle.

Our last stop was Munich, Germany where we visited the BMW headquarters, and the town square with the clock tower. We also visited Dachau, a Second World War Nazi concentration

camp, which now is a memorial museum to those who died during this horrific time. The best part of the tour for me was seeing the students get so excited about the places that we visited.

They were amazing travellers and I was really proud of the way they behaved and the respect they showed toward the new cultures that we experienced. I know that these young people will go on to travel in the future and that this trip really opened their eyes to the world. What a great way to spend the summer. Next March we will go to Italy and Greece on a 10-day tour, which includes a three-day cruise through the Greek Islands with a stop in Turkey. If you would like

Big Creek Roundup a time for games, barbecue and dancing Veera Bonner Special to The Tribune A sunny day and a happy crowd made the Big Creek Roundup held at the hall on Sept. 8 another outstanding success. A cheery campfire blazed where cowboy coffee was free for the taking and hot dogs were there for a donation thrown into a tin can. The game of horseshoes was the usual focal point outdoors with Bob Bradshaw in charge. Bradshaw and Tom Hodgson were the top players of the day. New and a great addition this year were wagon rides donated by Roy Blatchford. The wagon rides had

a nice, old-fashioned, country feel to them as Blatchford drove his big high-wheeled wagon with a handsome team of matched grey mares, Dottie and Leah, down the old road that runs by the hall. Jasmine Weetman and Dina Russell organized games for the kids. They had fun with the sack races, threelegged races and such. The country fair was displayed in a large tent near the hall where the Big Creek ladies took turns looking after it. A sing song with guitar and harmonica accompaniment around the campfire filled the afternoon air with music.

Vern Mulvahill, Levi Purjue, Iris Witte and Lloyd Como and others contributed their talents. Everyone looks forward to supper and it is never a disappointment. Bradshaw carved juicy roast beef at the entrance to the hall with the flourish of a good, sharp carving knife. Roasted potatoes, homemade bread, plenty of butter and an amazing selection of salads topped it off. For dessert you had a choice of homemade pie with whip cream on top and seconds if you please.

Nature’s Scribes writing adventure at Scout Island Nature’s Scribes is a new program for kids to learn about nature writing that will take place on the teacher only professional development day, Sept. 28 and during the school fall break Nov. 13 to 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. The workshops run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Scout Island Nature Centre and are open to children ages seven to 13. Scout Island Nature Centre and the Williams Lake Field Naturalists are presenting the program that will be taught by Anne Theresa White, says nature centre program

co-ordinator Jenny Noble. White and staff teacher Julianne Trelenberg will combine nature walks with writing games to nurture kids’ expressive potential. Noble says White has been mentoring young writers in the community for several years, and her daily walks at the nature centre feed her creative spirit. She has even written a magical children’s book set there. “Observing and absorbing nature connects us to all that is; writing can help us integrate and share what

we experience,” Noble says. “Providing a space and a structure for exploring that process is the goal of these workshops.” Group size is limited, so she advises parents to be sure to register their children early by phoning 250398-8532 or e-mailing The fee is $10 per session or $25 for all three sessions.

New Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine Project Federal Review Panel

Public Notice PROPOSED NEW PROSPERITY GOLD-COPPER MINE PROJECT REVIEW PANEL INVITES PUBLIC TO • COMMENT ON PUBLIC HEARING PROCEDURES, • COMMENT ON THE CONFIDENTIALITY PROCEDURES AND • APPLY FOR INTERESTED PARTY STATUS The Federal Review Panel for the proposed New Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine project invites public comment on the draft Hearing Procedures and Confidentiality Procedures. As well, the Panel invites persons or groups who wish to participate in all aspects of the review during the public hearing to apply for Interested Party status. Hearing Procedures and Confidentiality Procedures The Panel invites written comments on the proposed Hearing Procedures which detail how the upcoming public hearing will unfold, as well as input on the Confidentiality Procedures, the process for requesting that information be submitted to the Panel in confidence. The Panel is seeking input from Aboriginal groups, the proponent, the public and other participants on both these documents. The Panel is proposing to hold three different types of hearing sessions during the public hearing. General hearing sessions are proposed to be held in Williams Lake, British Columbia to provide an opportunity for public input into the review in this central location. Community hearing sessions will be held to allow members of the local communities to express their views to the Panel in an informal setting. The Panel will also hold Topic-Specific hearing sessions in Williams Lake to allow opportunity for experts to present technical information. The general and community sessions will provide an opportunity for comments from the public and Interested Parties. At the topic-specific sessions, members of the public may attend as observers but the Panel will allow only those who are granted Interested Party status to participate in the proceedings. Applying for Interested Party Status The Panel has determined the process for applying for Interested Party status. While the Panel will allow opportunity for general public input within the environmental review, only those persons with Interested Party status will be permitted to participate in all aspects of the review during the public hearing. Participants who wish to be registered as an Interested Party must submit an application to be designated an Interested Party by the Panel. The directions for applying for Interested Party status are available on the online public registry. Once the Panel has made its decisions, the list of Interested Parties will be posted on the public registry. Interested Party applications, written comments on the Hearing Procedures and on the Confidentiality Procedures must be submitted by September 28, 2012. All applications and comments on the procedures will be made public through the online registry. Forward your application and written comments to the attention of the panel manager below at . The Application for Interested Party status, the Hearing Procedures, the Confidentiality Procedures along with more information on this project are available on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry at , registry number 63928. To be added to the distribution list and be kept informed of activities relating to the panel review process, contact: Livain Michaud, Panel Manager New Prosperity Gold-Copper Mine Project – Federal Review Panel 160 Elgin Street, 22nd Floor, Ottawa ON K1A 0H3 Tel.: 613-948-1359 / 1-866-582-1884 Taseko Mines Ltd. proposes the construction and operation of a large open pit gold-copper mine development, approximately 125 km southwest of Williams Lake, B.C.

Come home to natural gas Natural gas offers comfort, convenience and value Your home is perhaps your most important investment. It costs money to maintain it, and needs energy to run it. By choosing the right energy for the right use, you can maximize energy efficiency and value for your energy dollars. Natural gas is a good choice for heating, whether it’s hot water for a shower or warmth from the furnace or fireplace. It’s also great for barbecuing burgers on the patio. And, with the variety of stylish natural gas appliances and rebates available, upgrading your appliances to natural gas is more affordable. Find energy efficiency rebates that meet your needs at

Natural gas makes your summers seem endless A natural gas barbecue never runs out of fuel. If you have a natural gas patio heater or fire pit, you can stay outside long after summer‘s over. And when that blustery storm hits, you can stay warm and well fed with a natural gas fireplace and range. Both will continue working during a power outage. For comfort, convenience and value balance your home’s energy mix with natural gas. Visit to watch our video on how natural gas fits into your everyday life.

Choices to fit your life Stylish, convenient natural gas appliances increase the comfort of your home, indoors and out. Find out more about energy efficient appliances at Furnaces and boilers


Heating systems provide even warmth and comfort throughout the home.

Fireplaces provide ambience and cosy warmth. An outdoor fireplace, firepit or patio heater can extend summer evenings.

Cooktops, ovens and ranges

Chefs prefer natural gas for instant heat, a variable flame and precise temperature control. Barbecues

With a quick connect you’ll never lift a propane tank or worry about running out of fuel. Dryers

Natural gas dryers heat up instantly and dry your clothes with gentle warmth.
