Did you know Bobby Fowler? Police looking for any information about man who lived here in the ‘70s DELYNDA PILON

Bobby Jack Fowler murdered 16-yearold Colleen MacMillen, a girl whose name was listed among the 13 unsolved homicide victims the E-Pana task force was formed to investigate. Named among the Highway of Tears victims, MacMillen, who lived in Lac la Hache, planned to hitchhike to a friend’s house on Aug. 9, 1974. She walked up to Hwy. 97, and was never seen alive again. Her body was found 46 kilometres south by a logging road. With the expanding precision of forensic science, DNA evidence, preserved over the years by the RCMP, was tested in 2012. A hit with CODIS proved that Fowler, who died in an Oregon prison in 2006, was responsible for her murder. Though he has been eliminated in eight of the 13 homicides and five missing women cases E-PANA is investigating, officers believe he may be responsible for other murders, in particular the murders of 19-year-old Gale Weys, who was last seen hitchhiking from Clearwater on Oct. 16, 1973 and whose body was found six months later, and 19-year-old Kamloops resident, Pamela Darlington, whose body was found in Pioneer Park on Nov. 7, 1973. He also remains a suspect in the murder of Ramona Wilson, who was last seen alive in June of 1994. Her body was found in April, 1995. Wilson’s family, including her mother, attended a press conference in Prince George held by E-PANA investigators on Wednesday. Her daughter stood and asked whether Ramona was one of the eight murders Fowler was eliminated from as a suspect. “Ramona has not been eliminated,” Insp. Gary Shinkaruk, officer in charge of B.C.

woman. He served 10 years of that sentence before dying of natural causes in prison. His final conviction was the last of several, including one in 1970 for killing a man in Texas during a vicious assault. “We believe continually, throughout his life, Fowler committed violent crimes on men and women.” Police also believe there will be unreported cases involving Fowler. Fowler, a transient, liked old cars that he drove until they quit. At one time he drove a white ‘61 Chrysler. A car matching that description was seen in the area during the time Pamela Darlington was murdered. Living in motels or renting, Fowler frequented restaurants and bars where he was violent towards men and women alike. He enjoyed picking up hitchhikers. Police are are asking the public to help them gather information on Fowler. “We believe there are people

We are asking you to think back to the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s at your own memories of that time period, then have a look at his photos, and please call us with any information you have about him,” Shinkaruk said.

Respect has been the cornerstone of our relationships with Aboriginal groups across Canada. That’s respect on their terms, not ours. And that means having an understanding of, and sensitivity to, the values and the issues that are important to them. When we started talking to Aboriginal communities about the Northern Gateway Project, they told us, unequivocally, that they wanted meaningful, long-term involvement in the labour force. That’s why we established a $1.5-million Gateway Education and Training Fund — and it’s not dependent, in any way, upon Northern Gateway regulatory approval. This fund supports training initiatives based in the pipeline, construction, and energy sectors. It is not training for the sake of training; it is totally focused on employment outcomes. And along Northern Gateway right-ofway communities, Enbridge is already connecting industry and community to help create Aboriginal career opportunities. Catherine Pennington, Northern Gateway’s Supervisor of Community Education, Training, and Skills Development, reports that we’re already co-funding training programs for surveyors and ironworkers. We’re purchasing seats in existing Aboriginal trades programs, and partnering with provincial and federal bodies to help develop skilled tradespeople in the areas

Join the conversation at

of heavy equipment operation, pipefitting, welding, and construction craft labouring. We’ve also co-ordinated the first of many “workforce connections” workshops, bringing together representatives of Northern Gateway equity First Nations and companies with labour-force needs for some meaningful employment discussion. We’ve heard, loud and clear, from Aboriginal communities that they don’t want to be bypassed anymore by economic opportunities created within, near, or around them — and we’re doing something about it. The Gateway Education and Training Fund shows our commitment to community and workforce development. We want to be connected to the Aboriginal community and not just because it makes good business sense. It’s about partnership. It’s about responsibility. And, ultimately, it’s about respect.

Fake baby giveaway ads irk many Local animal activist says the posting are designed to raise awareness DELYNDA PILON

A series of ads on the Prince George Kijiji site have drawn the ire of a number of locals who say they are offensive, however the woman posting them has no intention of stopping. Michaela Loiselle admits the ads border on the absurd, however she maintains they are posted to raise awareness, and the reaction she’s getting from them proves they are working. Loiselle, an animal activist, said she became tired of the many sad stories she hears about pet owners moving, only to either give their animals away or abandon them. “I see a lot of people coming in and out of the place I work with animals, and then they don’t have them anymore. One customer told me he moved into a new place and there was a dog already living there, abandoned by the former tenant. Basically I’m posting these ads to raise awareness that if you’re going to have an animal it’s just as much a commitment as if you’re going to have a child,” she said.

The ads are worded to sound like the ones she sees that say the pet owner is moving and needs someone to give Fluffy or Fido to. She’ll say she’s the mom of two children, is moving, and can’t take them with her. Can someone provide a good home? The children might have a bit of a glitch. For instance, the young boy might still pee in the house, or the baby girl might have a bit of a nipping problem. “I’ve had responses from people who were highly offended,” she said. Her ads generally only stay up for a few days before being flagged then removed. However Loiselle has no intention of stopping. The activity is just one she’s taken on to defend the rights of animals. She also helps friends run a home-based rescue centre. “Basically we rescue anything with scales or tails,” she said, however their focus is on reptiles. They also have a FaceBook page dedicated to helping people understand how to properly care for reptiles. The rescue centre usually keeps the animals until they are assessed

and rehabilitated, if necessary. Then they follow-up on placements because finding a good stable home for a pet is important Loiselle added. “Changing homes or being aban-

doned entirely is traumatic on a pet, she said. “If you are going to own one, research the breed. Know there is not going to be a chance in the near future to get rid of them. People believe once a dog grows to

decent size it should behave like a fully grown mature dog.” Loiselle added that, if you read the ad right through, the point she is trying to make becomes obvious.

RD looks at genetically-modified food labeling DELYNDA PILON

The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George will consider a resolution requiring mandatory labelling on genetically modified foods. Director Lara Becket presented a report to the board at its last meeting with a recommendation to declare the regional district free of genetically modified foods. Though the recommendation was defeated, a report will be presented at

a future meeting regarding mandatory labelling. “It was a good discussion paper,” board chair Art Kaehn said. “The board didn’t completely understand the issue, and there were different views on the issue, so the motion was defeated. The second recommendation the board is considering is the mandatory labelling of genetically modified foods.” He said the board decided it felt more comfortable with that recommendation. Staff was directed to provide a report

on the subject which will be presented to the board at a future date. Kaehn said though he is no expert on the subject, and since the report on genetically modified foods has yet to be prepared for the board, he doesn’t know how much of it is being sold locally. “Likely more than we realize,” he said. “But I can’t say for sure. We haven’t received a report back. My understanding is it’s not about breeding. Instead it’s introducing organisms or traits of an organism into another.

That’s my understanding. That’s what up for discussion,” he said. He added he’s learned similar resolutions have been forwarded to the Union of British Columbia Municipalities in the past. If the recommendation is passed by the board, it will be forwarded to the North Central Local Government association. If that entity endorses it, then it will be sent to the UBCM. “Then we’ll work on trying to advance mandatory labelling,” Kaehn said.

Possible service cuts outlined Core review

Union slams report

It’s the kitchen sink of cutbacks. KPMG’s core services review document, published to the city’s website Friday, lists 193 “opportunities” for the city to trim expenses. Everything from selling off the Civic Centre to reducing firehall staff and/or using volunteer firefighters, to reducing tax exemptions to charities, to having the Four Seasons pool operated by a third party, to selling off city lots, to developing a municipal police force to not running snowplows until 12 centimetres of snow have accumulated are in the document. The intent of the document released Friday is to invite comments on the validity of the suggested cutbacks. The changes suggested in the document have been evaluated against assessment criteria approved by the Select Committee on Core Services Review. The city is seeking input from staff and the community on the suggested changes via an online survey available on the city website at and through consultation sessions. Here are some of the suggestions: • Reform IPG governance to increase accountability and communication with the city – could have some range of decisions vetted by city administration, or by council, could add more members of administration or council to the board. • Move IPG function into the city. • Sell the North Nechako city land (roughly 10 acres); potential $3 million sale price with $900,000 to service for a net revenue to the city of $2.1 million. • Sell lands at University Heights and other city-owned single-family lots for a potential $3.6 million in revenue. • Sell city-owned downtown commercial sites. • More pro-active enforcement of city bylaws. • Reduce the number of bylaw enforcement officers. • Examine the type and time of calls to fire stations to look at staffing requirements. Options include reducing staffing at stations three and four to two per shift; use volunteer and/or part time firefighters for some stations; vary staffing by time of day and day of the week. • Merge fire dispatch operations with regional district’s 911 system. • Determine the process to decrease the number of councillors from eight to six. • Reduce the permissive tax exemptions for charities and non-profits by limiting eligibility. • Contract out payroll. • Encourage a third-party operator for the Four Seasons pool. • Close the Four Seasons pool. • Sell/transfer Civic Centre to private sector operator. • Seek private sector operator to manage and operate the Civic Centre. • Contract out CN Centre and recreational arenas. • Sell the entire Pine Valley golf course lands (40 acres).

Changes suggested in the KPMG core services review could drastically impact the quality of services Prince George residents receive, says the union representing a large number of city employees. “We want residents to be aware of the implications of these ‘opportunities’,” said Janet Bigelow, president of CUPE 1048, in a press release. “Privatizing services, selling off assets and changing the way we run public facilities could mean major changes to public services in Prince George. This could include higher costs and lower quality of services.” The Prince George core services review is nearing an end, and as part of its final phases KPMG has released a list of 193 ways the city could reduce costs, calling them “suggested opportunities to inform consultative process.” The intent of the document, released Friday, is to invite comments on the validity of the suggested cutbacks. The report suggests changes for public service delivery in Prince George, including a reduction in fire staff, privatization or sale of the Four Seasons Pool and the sale of city

assets including the Civic Centre and Pine Valley Golf Centre. Bigelow also notes that the list of ‘opportunities’ provided by KPMG looks only at cost cutting measures. She says that to have an effective and meaningful discussion the mayor and council must also consider revenue generating ideas. CUPE 1048 has been working with CUPE 399 and other community groups over the past several months on the “I Heart PG” campaign, which has aimed to educate Prince George residents on the importance of public services. CUPE 399 president Gary Campbell says that the campaign has been very successful to date. He says that one of the key issues they have seen support for is keeping the Four Seasons Pool a public facility. Campbell notes that keeping the pool public would ensure that it remains accessible to all members of the community. KPMG is due to issue its final report October 26, in the meantime the public has the opportunity to comment on the draft report through a public consultation session which will be held Tuesday October 2 from 6-9 p.m. at the

The front steps and front lawn of City Hall was packed Sept. 21 as the city officially welcomed international students to Prince George. It was a perfect day, very warm for fall. With a blue sky overhead and crispy orange and yellow leaves trickling from the overhanging tree branches like a colourful shower, high school, college and university students listened to a variety of music, played games and ate their fill at the barbecue. “Prince George is a very welcoming and inclusive city, “ Mayor Shari Green said. She added it is a place where cultural diversity is valued and celebrated. Green said it champions equity and respect for all people. “You contribute to community growth,” she said. John Bowman, president of the

College of New Caledonia, said that 300 students from 15 different countries are attending school at CNC alone. “All of us who work at the institution and live in Prince George are going to benefit from you,” he said. “You each bring exciting and enriching experiences to our city, “ School District 57 chair, Sharel Warrington, said. Dr. John Young, Dean of the University of Northern British Columbia, reminisced about his years in university, studying in countries like Germany, Russia and Japan. He said doing so broadened his horizons and enriched his perspective. Young suggested the youth present get involved in their host communities to further enhance their experience. The afternoon continued with games, door prizes and cake.

The core of the matter A

s far as politically correct titles that don’t really say what the subject matter is go, the subhead on KPMG’s core services review has to take the cake. It lists the 193 recommendations on ways the city can trim costs as “suggested opportunities to inform consultative process.” Technically, it makes sense as it has thrown in everything, including the kitchen sink, into its recommendations to city council on reshaping the city and the document is designed to spur community debate. But let’s be clear – it involves cutting costs in order to save money. That’s not to say that many of them aren’t warranted. They are. No one will argue with the city selling off a lot of, if not all, the commercial property it owns. Makes sense. However, the report also outlines eliminating, reducing, or privatizing many city services. These will all have an impact on how city services are delivered and to what level they are delivered. Much of what is in the report, if implemented, will result in job losses and/or reduced city services. No one should be shocked by this. That’s what a core services review is supposed to do … outline what services the city offers and evaluate whether the city should be providing those services. There is plenty chew on in the KPMG report. And we are the first to normally suggest that the city should be open and up front with what it is doing. However, by opening this up to public debate now can, and likely will, result in a screaming match in the community as we all fight to keep the services we want. What then ends up happening is city council is likely going to decide which services to keep based on who screams the loudest or has the largest campaign donation rather than what really is best for the city. In addition, the city must be a very, very unpleasant place to work right now. The report is far-reaching in its recommendations, as it should be, but clearly outlines full time equivalency positions that can be eliminated in specific departments. If you work in those departments, job security has to be front-and-centre right now. Council would have been better off to whittle down the recommendations it feels would be warranted and present those to the public rather than the catch-all that creates unnecessary upheaval.

Filling all those new job openings Many jurisdictions around the world are struggling with high unemployment rates and unstable economies. Here at home, we face a rather different predicament. In the coming years, British Columbia expects to see one million new job openings in the province. Of those one PATBELL million new job openings, approximately 43 per cent of them will require trades and technical training. What’s especially important to us as a government is ensuring British Columbians have the right skills, in the right places, at the right times.

Last week we announced the comprehensive Skills and Training Plan to expand and align skills training programs with upcoming economic opportunities. As part of the BC Jobs Plan, the Skills and Plan will be built MLA Training on four key of action: Report Promotingareas and profiling today’s training for tomorrow’s careers: government will work to promote the dynamic opportunities in the trades and technical fields and improve policies to support these choices. Investing $75 million to improve training facilities and equipment, and ensur-

ing the availability of technical education teachers, particularly with trades certification. Getting the right mix and quality of trades and technical programs and reducing the time required to achieve certification while maintaining the high standards required by employers. Matching economic immigration selection to meet British Columbia’s labour market needs. In addition to the newly developed Skills and Training Plan was last week’s announcement of $17 million in funding to upgrade skills training equipment at public post-secondary institutions around

the province. We were very pleased to have the premier in Prince George to join us at the College of New Caledonia for the special announcement. Equipment upgrade examples may include pumps, welders, wheel balancers, diesel engine trailers, and drill presses so students can build their skills in optimum learning environments. These initiatives are about having an aggressive plan in place to meet the demands of tomorrow. They’re about making sure British Columbians are provided with the necessary tools to take advantage of the vast opportunities of our future.

NEW FIRE SAFETY PROGRAM This fall, Prince George Fire Rescue is introducing a new Fire Safety program targeting grade four students. The program will focus on the importance of working smoke alarms and the development of home escape plans.

Tourism operators to gather in Prince George A gathering of tourism operators will bring people from all throughout northern B.C. to Prince George next month. The Northern BC Tourism Association (NBCTA), one of the six official tourism regions of the province, holds its conference and annual general meeting from October 28- 30. “Tourism contributes $1.1 billion annually to the northern B.C. economy,” said NBCTA CEO, Anthony Everett, in a press release. “And this conference brings together the partners who support our sector in northern B.C. We are the largest tourism region in the province, so it’s always exciting to get together to learn and network with our colleagues from all throughout the region – from the Alaska Highway to Terrace to Haida Gwaii ” The conference includes professional development sessions, and some key guest speakers. VIP presenters include Greg Klassen, Vice President of the Canadian Tourism Commission; Pat Bell, current Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Spencer Chandra Herbert, official opposition critic for tourism. As a special treat, Jowi Taylor, former CBC host and owner of Canada’s most unique guitar, Voyageur, will explain how the guitar paints a portrait of Canada. Voyageur is made of 64 pieces of Canadian history, including wood from The Golden Spruce of Haida Gwaii, Pierre Trudeau’s canoe paddle, and Nancy Greene’s ski. Jowi travels the country with the guitar, which took 11 years to plan and six weeks to build. All those involved in tourism are welcome to attend.

Kate Knuff is an active and modern young woman who spends her leisure time hiking in summer and skiing in winter. But the UNBC student is equally at ease – whatever the season – with a pair of knitting needles in her hands. Knuff has been knitting since the age of 11. Now at 21, her original “Sweetheart” knit pullover pattern is featured in a major magazine. “Interweave is one of the larger [16 magazines for arts and crafts, 30 special issues per year] magazines, so it’s very exciting,” Knuff told the Free Press. “If I can’t find a pattern I want, I make it up myself.” More than just a passtime or hobby, knitting is a big part of who she is, she said. “Knitting is more of a personality trait with me. I can’t just sit still without doing something so I knit because it’s handy.” Previously, another sweater pattern and one for knit socks was accepted for publication. Her Sweetheart pattern is recommended for intermediate level knitters although Knuff points out that all knitting is based on two stitches, purl and plain. Knitting is a practical and creative way to add a personal touch to her wardrobe. “About one third of my clothes are handmade – and I only wear socks that I knit myself,” she says. Knuff is from Williams Lake where she had formed a knitting circle for seniors. Top Drawer Yarn Studio owners Darlene Shatford and Alanna Siemens invited Knuff to join their knitting group last Friday.


Linda J. Rempel, 250-614-0585

“Kate had to knit up the sweater for the photo shoot and I think she had only a month to do it. When she came to Top Drawer I asked her to talk to us about how she got published and about part of the pattern, the picot-edged turned-up hem. She showed people how to cast-on using a provisional cast-on method.” Shatford thinks Knuff’s achievement is ‘remarkable.’ “Interweave Knits is an internationally renowned magazine – the ‘New Yorker’ of knitting. And even though Kate has been published online, she is quite a young designer with limited designing experience – she definitely has the math-mind needed for designing, sizing and knitting.” Knitting is becoming more and more popular with men and women of all ages, said Shatford. “Especially [with] younger women who are taking part in a “do-it yourself” culture and who enjoy creating quality items for everyday use. The quality and luxuriousness of the yarns of this century differ a great deal from those of even 15 or 20 years ago.” In May, Knuff graduates from UNBC where she’s studying biology and business. She hopes to become a doctor. In her spare time she volunteers at blood donor clinics and soup kitchens. Knuff’s knitting designs can be found at The link to her pattern with Interweave is at media/p/95546.aspx. Top Drawer Yarn Studio is located above Books and Company on Third Ave.

A loved one lost: A wound that never heals TERESA MALLAM

Her name was Eunice. She went missing in the 1960s, never to be heard of again. Robert Ryan is manager of Fire Pit, a downtown drop-in centre which offers the homeless and people down on their luck a safe sanctuary where they can have a cup of tea or bowl of soup and where they can socialize with others. Eunice was Ryan’s aunt. He remembers – like it was yesterday – how the agonizing pain and baffling mystery of her disappearance tore his family apart. “I lost my aunt back in the ‘60s when she was a teenager. She was our babysitter. One day she just left and never came back. “We have no idea what happened to her. She just vanished. My parents talked about it all the time,” he said. “It’s been so sad for us over the years because we’ve never heard any news of her. We just kept thinking she would come home. My aunt was loved by all of us and [to this day] she is still missed.” Police investigations failed to turn up any leads in the case, he said. The family looked in vain for Eunice. “We were living in Cassiar Cannery, a fishing community on the Skeena River [25 miles from Prince Rupert) at the time. I think back then the police just thought she was a runaway – not that we think that. But I do wonder about that trucker route from Prince Rupert to Prince George.” Ryan says he also has a good friend who has spent the last 11 years looking for his own long lost daughter.

“He takes time out to travel the highways looking for her. He keeps thinking he will find her. He says he will never give up hope.” The news this week that at least one case in the Highway of Tears (Highway 16) file of murdered and missing women has been solved by police – the 1974 death of Colleen MacMillen of Lac La Hache – rang a little hollow with Ryan. “Two things hit me. He’s an American and he’s dead. That seems just too convenient to me. It seems he’s a scapegoat or something.” Saying that, Ryan acknowledges that police deserve credit and they have solid evidence of Bobby Jack Fowler’s guilt [with a DNA sample.] Ryan says his words actually convey his frustration that it has taken so long for the loved ones of the murdered and missing women to have answers. Despite assurances in the media that investigators plan to push on and hopefully solve other cases, Ryan shrugs and says, “One case in all these years? However, people in the Te re s a M A LLA M / Fre e Pre s s community are helping in Robert Ryan with the cross-stitch work donated by Janice Merwin their own way to honour to remember the women of the Highway of Tears. and keep in mind the women that I would try to make the con“There is not one person who who have gone missing, he nection.

“HIV does not change who you are.”

HIV is a real concern within our communities. You can contract HIV primarily through unprotected sex and by sharing needles. HIV can live in your body for years without you knowing and all the while you can be passing it to others. At least 25 per cent of people who are HIV+ do not know and these 25 per cent are estimated to be responsible for 75 per cent of new infections. Northern Health, in collaboration with its community partners, is working with the Province of BC to prevent the spread of HIV by expanding HIV testing, treatment, and support services to British Columbians.

John Fogerty plays at CN Centre Tuesday night. over, Fogerty and his five-piece band had put on a two hour show showing off stellar musicianship, lush lighting, sweet video clips and special effects suited to each song.

vine. Sooooo good. Dramatic red lights. My personal pics: Up Around the Bend (lyrics by Fogerty,) CCR’s hit song Long As I Can See the Light – for this one the stage had light cones that grew bigger like the flame of a giant candle. There was a great rendition of Who’ll Stop the Rain and Run Through the Jungle with Fogerty on harmonica. I Ain’t Never heard it done so well. Solid song set. Forgive me if I can’t rattle off all the tune titles due to space restraints – besides, I think Fogerty put a spell on me. But I learned a lot of things about Fogerty from the bio/video that ran before the show – like how he bought his first guitar at age eight and now owns 300 guitars and travels with about 25. I think we saw him play all 25... And we were introduced to the one thing that brought Fogerty out of the fog after legal battles and long hiatus had taken there toll. The joy of his life. He asked us, “Have you found love? I have found love... and her name is Julie. She’s sittin’ right over there.” Luckiest Man Alive? You bet. And we were a lucky audience who got to see this living legend perform - still at the top of his game – on Tuesday night.

BC HYDRO CIVIL CONSTRUCTION —PRINCE GEORGE BC Hydro is undertaking the construction of two underground concrete duct banks in Prince George. One ductbank will be 225 meters in length and will be constructed along 5th Avenue and Dominion St. The other ductbank will be 450 meters in length and will be constructed along Carney and 1st Avenue. These underground ductbanks are required to modernize BC Hydro’s infrastructure. The ductbanks will be buried within the municipal roadbeds. All roads listed above, including sidewalks and curbs, will be impacted to facilitate the installation. Construction is scheduled to start Monday October 1st, 2012 and will run from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday to Saturday inclusive. Work is estimated to be complete in approximately three weeks on or about October 20th, 2012. Traffic management and rerouting during the proposed three week construction window will be required to balance the safety practices of BC Hydro’s contractor with the continuation of daily activities for the public. Roads, sidewalk and curbs will be restored. Construction is scheduled to start Monday October 1st, 2012. For further information, please contact Bob Gammer at 250 561 4858.

populated by misunderstanding and possibly even fear. PGCOS is often called upon for volunteers to assist seniors through home visits or tasks like snow shovelling and yard maintenance. Seniors often express their hesitance about youth volunteers. PGCOS is also aware that many youth are not particularly interested in volunteering with seniors. The generation gap seems to be alive and well in both age directions! PGCOS has just launched a new venture called “Finding Common Ground”. This project is designed to bring seniors and youth together to explore the challenges and opportunities of intergenerational communications, and is being funded by New Horizons for Seniors. On Saturday September 22, a fabulous – and very thoughtful – group of young people (between 13 and 30) enjoyed a “Pizza and Dialogue Day” and contemplated important questions like “what messages do you get concerning seniors

What’s in an ‘elders’ label? RITA WIEBE Special to the Free Press

Many yeas ago when I was in my 20s and 30s, thought I knew everything, and that I was quite intelligent. I discovered in my 50s that I probably would have made some better choices for my life with the guidance of wisdom and maturity of my own respected family members. Perhaps, having had the intestinal fortitude to ask their opinion before making life changing decisions would have probably been a great benefit. The “Elder” label has an inference of wisdom and respect along with a mystery of how they acquired those qualities. My curiosity about this “Elder” phenomenon prompted me to attend a meeting of the All Nations Elders group. I sensed the group was very much about being self-proclaimed regarding age, race and wisdom, and that even

I could be an “Elder” if I choose. Could it be that the word “Elder” be replaced with the word “Senior” as it may be more relevant to the advancing years of the Boomer generation? It would seem be a somewhat more fitting terminology and has nothing to do with a fear of getting older. It has everything to do with expectations of respect and worthiness as we move into life’s second half. Paul Michel, Director of the First Nations Centre at UNBC explains that the term “elder” has a powerful, spiritual and dynamic meaning in First Nations communities. Michel is careful to qualify his comments as there are varying First Nations interpretations of the term “elder.” However, he says that the commonality amongst First Nations is that an elder is widely regarded as being a respected, wise and caring senior

within their respective communities. He further explains that First Nations elders are keepers of our healing medicine knowledge, our sacred stories and spiritual ceremonies. Elders are pillars of wisdom and they help guide and share transformative philosophies with everyone in the community. Traditionally, First Nations value community and family values much like rural Canadian com-

munities. Michel suggests that in our fast paced urban centres, we must revitalize our connection with our elders and in turn, our quality of life will improve exponentially. In summation and whatever label we use, need to be ever mindful of societal “isms” whether they be racism, sexism, classism and even ageism. We are living in an era of change, and the First Nations influence

Celebrate Seniors Day Oct. 1 DAVID HAY Special to the Free Press

Seniors aren’t problems to be managed, and aging is not an illness. But too often we talk about older British Columbians that way, in terms both inaccurate and demeaning. There are certainly challenges in growing older. But nothing happens at 65 that suddenly makes someone less of a person. Seniors contribute a great deal. Like everyone else, they work, volunteer, support family members, nurture friendships, pursue hobbies and interests, and participate in community life. In B.C., more than 10,000 children are being raised by their grandparents with not a lot of support - a great challenge and contribution. Yes, many British Columbians require society’s support as they age. But so do people of all ages – families needing day care, university students needing bursaries, commuters needing good roads and everyone needing health care. Yet, somehow, support for seniors tends to be viewed as a special burden. Admittedly, demographics create some challenges. In 2001, there were 135,000 British Columbians over 80. By 2011, there were 197,000, a 46 per cent increase in 10 years. Similar increases lie ahead; by 2036, one in four of us will be over 65. While we talk about supporting people as

they age, we aren’t delivering. The B.C. Ombudsperson reported last year that the number of publicly subsidized residential care beds increased by 3.4 per cent between 2002 and 2010. Meanwhile, the population over 80 - the main client base - increased by 34 per cent. (Home support services also failed to keep up with the growth in the over-80 population.) Those of us in the community social services sector know it is a mistake to think seniors’ needs revolve around health care, as if aging is an illness. Families do great work helping their elders. But not everyone has family members nearby, and often, professional skills are required.

That’s when the agencies that employ thousands of expert, dedicated people in the community social services sector take over. They support seniors in their homes. They help with shopping and meals. They provide physiotherapy, and counselling on everything from medications and health to emotional issues. Our work produces pragmatic benefits. For example, while it costs $72,000 a year to provide residential care (shared between seniors and government), a few hours a week of home support can help people stay independent at a fraction of that expense. Community support is the best way to reduce demands on the health

care system. But really, this is about doing what’s right. Seniors should be supported in their desire to live full, rich lives, and contribute. Our commitment also has to extend to the professional, dedicated people who provide the support. The number of seniors has been increasing, but government support has not kept up. Frontline workers have been increasingly stressed and stretched, and seniors have suffered from reduced care. It’s good that we recognize our elders through National Seniors Day, Oct. 1. But seniors don’t really need a day, or a press release. They need a citizenry and a government that treat

Jordan Hall facing tough tests in Timberwolves net ALISTAIR MCINNIS

This season on the soccer pitch, UNBC Timberwolves goalkeeper Jordan Hall has faced a barrage of shots unlike anything she’d seen previously. The 18-year-old Prince George product been knocked down,

kicked around, and has bruises to show for it. Following their latest game, a 3-0 loss to the Regina Cougars on Sunday at the North Cariboo Fields, she was holding an ice pack to her leg. It’s the price to pay. No pain, no gain. Hall and her teammates are closing the

gap on the opposition. The Timberwolves, a first-year entry in Canada West, held the lead in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to the Saskatchewan Huskies. Rookie striker Sidney Roy recorded a first-half goal, the team’s first Canadian Interuniversity Sport marker. With zero wins, five

losses and one tie (0-51), outscored 34-1 in the process, it appears as though UNBC has suffered more pain than pleasure. You’d be short-sighted to look only at the overall numbers. Twentyeight of those goals against were surrendered over three consecutive games: they followed an 11-0 defeat against the Manitoba Bisons in Winnipeg on Sept. 9 with two lopsided losses at home, 10-0 to the Victoria Vikes on Sept. 15 and 7-0 to the Fraser Valley Cascades on Sept. 16. Hall has backstopped the Timberwolves the majority of the way, only sitting for a half hour or so during the second half of their contest at Manitoba. Those numbers don’t do justice to Hall. Consider these figures and you’ll appreciate what the 2011 College Heights Secondary graduate has done for UNBC. She’s played five full games over 16 days, only sitting for a half hour or so during the second half of their contest at Manitoba. She leads the 13-team league in saves, with 63, and already has a shutout to her name. Hall went the distance for the Timberwolves in their scoreless draw against the Winnipeg Wesmen in their opener on Sept. 8 in Winnipeg. Then there’s the inexperience factor.

we just kind of have to take it with a grain of salt and learn from it and not make excuses for ourselves, but realize that we are a young team, first year in this and I think there will be good things to come.” Hall, a Biomedical Health Science student, is a second-year player on a team short on veteran leadership. Midfielder Rebecca Irving is the only fourth-year member of the team, with a pair of thirdyears on the 16-player roster, defenders Riley Flannagan and Georgia Lahti. The lineup is absent of fifth-year players and has six rookies. With so much youth, there’s a lot of room to improve. Hall says she’s always challenging herself. She’s faced stronger, faster and more skilled players at the CIS level. “No one holds up on the teams. Not that any teams did last year, but there’s no holding up and you have to be just as aggressive as them or more,” she says. “And that’s just one thing. You just got to be the first one to the ball.”

UNBC Timberwolves goalkeeper Jordan Hall attempts to make a save against the Regina Cougars on Sunday. Thirteen months ago, Hall was still preparing for her first college game. One season in the PacWest division of the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association behind her and she’s a starting goalie at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport level. The jump has been an eye opener. “We did play at a high level last year, and throughout my youth, we did play at a pretty high level,” she says. “But just everything is just so differ-

ent, and just the teams. But I don’t really think about the goals for and against, just because I think about how well our team has been doing the last couple of games, and going into these games. These aren’t easy teams and I’m proud of the team that we kept them off for as long as we did.” The Timberwolves managed to hold the Cougars (4-0-0) and Huskies (3-1-0) off the scoresheet in the first half. Their last two defeats were an improvement from the previous three, which Hall admits taught them a lesson on competing in the Canada West Universities Athletic Association. “We knew going into this that it wasn’t going to be easy and that there were going to be big scores like that,” she says. “But

SCHEDULE The Timberwolves, who completed a four-game homestand on Sunday, will be back on the road this weekend. They play in Calgary against the Mount Royal Cougars (0-4-1) on Saturday before travelling to Edmonton to meet the Alberta Pandas (3-0-2) on Sunday. After this weekend, the Timberwolves will return to Prince George for their final home weekend of the season. They host the Calgary Dinos on Oct. 6 before a visit from the Lethbridge Pronghorns on Oct. 7.

You could call them the PGSS Pink Polars. It’s a title that would suit members of the junior varsity football team just fine. They know that raising money to battle breast cancer is a worthwhile cause, and have no problem showing off pink with the pigskin. “I love it. I think it looks great. It fits me,” Grade 10 quarterback Dusten Betker says. The Polars, a firstyear entry in the B.C. high school football AA junior varsity Northern Division, are running a campaign known as Rock Your Socks this season. On top of wearing pink socks to home games, they’re carrying a sign and donation bucket to each contest. Each time the Polars either score a touchdown or record a sack on the opposition, representa-


change, anything,” she says of the Sept. 20 contest. “There were bills all the way down to pennies, they just gave whatever they could. It was crazy. After one game, to make $107, I think that kind of we expected to make that in a season. We didn’t think that we’d make it in a game, so we’ll see how it all goes.” The Polars also have an upcoming exhibition game against Kelly Road, scheduled for Oct. 10 at PGSS. Williams also suggested the team enter Sunday’s CIBC Run for a Cure, Canada’s largest single day event dedicated to raising funds for breast cancer research and awareness. The Prince George event is on Sunday at the Civic Centre, with the run beginning at

10 a.m. The PGSS players will turn in their donations at the end of the season. The regular season ends in October, with provincial playdowns in November. In addition to raising money for breast cancer awareness and prevention, Prince George football players are honouring the late Marlene Bundock this season. Bundock, a major supporter of the sport in the city, lost her battle with cancer in July at 44 years old. For Grade 10 centre Tyler Scully, the Rock Your Socks campaign is the first major fundraising effort he’s been a part of. During games, he’s enjoyed every minute of it. “I like it. We can give back to our community and other people, and

The funds support the CBCF in its efforts investing in research, education and health promotion to work towards breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care. The campaign began on Sept. 20, with $107.62 raised in the first game, a victory over the College Heights Cougars.

Coach not taking opposition lightly ALISTAIR MCINNIS

The UNBC men’s soccer team could reach an important goal soon. This weekend may represent the best chance so far for the Timberwolves to win their first Canada West game. After playing undefeated teams its last four games, UNBC hosts a team with a losing percentage on Saturday before welcoming a .500 squad to Prince George on Sunday. After hitting the pitch against the Calgary Dinos (1-4-1), the Timberwolves will battle the Lethbridge Pronghorns (2-2-2). But the Timberwolves, with six losses in as many games, would be foolish to get ahead of themselves. Head coach Alan Alderson isn’t taking the opponents’ records too seriously. “(The Pronghorns) are usually one of the weaker teams, but I’ll use that term loosely,” Alderson says. With his experience with soccer in Western Canada, including a tenure guiding the Trinity Western Spartans, Alderson knows a few things about Canada West. He says it’s usually a fine line separating the top and bottom teams. “But there was never an easy game with Lethbridge, it was usually a onegoal game that was really tight, and their issue is always depth because they’re not in a big centre. Depth is usually a problem and that will be one of our issues as well as we go forward.” Certainly UNBC doesn’t have the depth to match the big universities.

UNBC Timberwolves midfielder Cheona Edzerza, right, runs the ball along the sidelines while being defended by Brayden Volkenant of the Trinity Western Spartans on Sunday at the North Cariboo Fields. They have a 23-player roster, but 10 of those members are rookies. “It’s our first year. We need to get bigger and stronger,” Alderson says. The Timberwolves are coming off a pair of losses at home to the Spartans (5-0-1). Trinity Western downed UNBC 2-1 on Saturday and 4-1 on Sunday. A couple of players have missed action with health issues, and as a result, the Timberwolves have had to make lineup adjustments. Third-year midfielder Alessandro Deviato has been battling chest pain and was scheduled to go for a test on Thursday. If he passed the test, he’ll be in the lineup this weekend. Second-year

defender Logan Phenuff had to leave Sunday’s game early after reaggravating an ankle he initially hurt in their road game against the Alberta Golden Bears on Sept. 15. Fourth-year midfielder Sourosh Amani scored both goals against Trinity Western. Phenuff’s injury left Amani spending more time in the back end on Sunday. “(Amani) would be our best player in any position we put him in,” Alderson says. “Obviously we would like to put him in the attack because he’s an incredibly talented player. He can create goals, he can score them so that’s why we like him at that end of the field.

ito who went on national television to lash out at the Vancouver fans that booed the Canadian players off the ice: “To the people across Canada, we tried, we gave it our best, and to the people that boo us, geez, I’m really, all of us guys are really disheartened and we’re disillusioned, and we’re disappointed at some of the people.” It looked bleak going to Russia especially after the Russians took Game 5 5-4 erasing a 4-1 deficit. Thank goodness Canada had the leadership of Esposito and the uncanny scoring of Henderson who notched the winner in Game 6 (3-2), Game 7 (4-3) and Game 8. I still remember the audacity of the Russians who stated that if Game 8 was tied they would be declared the winner because of total goals. Forty years ago, there was an unparalleled game in history when J.P. Parise nearly swung his stick at the incompetent referee, Josef Kompalla; Alan Eagleson was subdued by the Soviet police and was escorted across the ice by the coaches and Paul Henderson delivered a moment that will not be duplicated. A national campaign is now underway to induct Henderson into the Hockey Hall of Fame. His NHL (236 goals, 241 assists in 707 games) and WHA numbers (140 goals, 143 assists in 360 games) may not be worthy but he deserves a spot since quality is often more important than quantity. In Canadian hockey terms, this “Paul” was clearly a “Saint”. Hartley Miller is the sports director for radio stations 94X and the Wolf@97fm. He also writes for the Opinion 250.
