West Fraser to build new planer mill Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer West Fraser will construct a new planer at its Williams Lake Sawmill, general manager Matt Ketcham announced Friday afternoon. “I am honoured to share some good news, not only for the company, but for the town of Williams Lake,” Ketcham said. Outlining the company’s history, which started in 1955 by three Ketcham brothers with a one-line planer in Quesnel, Ketcham said it’s been the company’s culture to reinvest in its employees and its facilities to maintain a strong global position. The company will rebuild the planer complex and modernize its equipment. “I believe this will contribute to the long-term success of not only the mill, but for our people. This division has been part of the company since 1957 and the sawmill was rebuilt in 1989,” Ketcham said, adding the new complex will be built close to the existing one.

Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett congratulated West Fraser, saying it was a great day. “It proves that the forest industry is alive and well in British Columbia and in particular, pine beetle country, where we hear so much negative about the future. We’ve said all along we will have a forest industry. It will change, it will not be the same.” The announcement signals confidence in the future for present employees and those in the future, Barnett added. “This gives stability and certainty to the workers and the community.” Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, Steve Thomson, praised West Fraser, describing it as a “great company and a strategic investor.” Echoing Barnett, Thomson said there has been lots of skepticism about the future of forestry in the province; however, West Fraser’s announcement indicates its confidence the industry is here to stay and will have a long healthy viable future in the Cariboo.

“This is a reflection on what we’ve been able to achieve as a province over the last number of years, to be able to put a stable investment climate in place to be able to support those industries that are working to compete globally.” The forest industry has come through a very difficult downturn and very tough circumstances over the last couple of years, but companies are being innovative and continue to invest in the industry, and work through the downturn to look to the future, Thomson added. Mayor Kerry Cook said she recently welcomed Ketcham to the community, saying it’s important to have “younger” people with a family background and rich heritage in Williams Lake return to the community. “Foresty is such an important fabric in our community and it’s so exciting to see West Fraser invest in such a large way,” she said. Ketcham explained that plans for the capital plan are still in process, so he could not name an exact dollar amount that will be expended. The hope is to begin construction

in the new year. The current planer will remain in operation while the new one is being built. Once the new one is open, the old site will be used to expand shop and storage facilities, and for lunch rooms. The new planer will not create an extra shift, and Ketcham does not anticipate any job losses. Presently there are around 180 hourly workers employed at the planer mill. Ketcham also took the opportunity to congratulate planerman Bill Belziuk who has worked at the sawmill 40 years. “He is our best planerman,” Ketcham said. Belziuk has actually worked in the industry 42 years, beginning his career in Dawson Creek. “I started working with Peter Ketcham and then Hank Ketcham, Matt’s dad. Something that makes it all worthwhile is the camaraderie we have here,” Belziuk said.”He is our best planerman,” Ketcham said. Belziuk has actually worked in the industry 42 years, beginning his career in Dawson Creek.

Social Media, recognizes a stakeholder for best practices or improvements in digital marketing via a variety of tools such as social media, websites and online optimization that enhances the tourism industry and Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region’s online reputation, Thacker said The President’s Award went to Richard Wright, chosen and presented by the association chair. The award recognizes a stakeholder for positive, ongoing contributions to the region above and beyond regular business. In addition to the annual awards, special accolades were shared at the Gala event during the

Tourism Summit. Barkerville Campgrounds was presented certification as the first SuperHost business in the region. Williams Lake’s Jason Ryll was awarded a Tourism Ambassador award to recognize his tireless support of small business in rural communities and the role tourism plays in building healthy communities. “Ryll not only volunteers for regional tourism, but is also active with the Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce and Community Futures Cariboo Chilcotin,” Thacker said.

Reporting on her attendance at the Summit during the Oct. 9 regular council meeting, city coun. Laurie Walters said it was CCCTA’s largest annual general meeting to date. “There were lots of great speakers. We had the honour of MLA Donna Barnett, Honourable Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Labour, MLA Bob Simpson, and Spencer Chandra-Herbert, MLA West Vancouver and NDP Opposition Critic.

alizing that the city of Williams Lake needs to step up to the plate and be more involved in tourism.” Growing tourism in Williams Lake and the region is vital, as is working with the CCCTA to move tourism forward, she suggested. “It really hit home, and in conversation with the city of Quesnel councillor as well, how important tourism is and how I feel it is as a city not to have tourism on the side of our desk, but really be more supportive and encouraging to get involved with tourism. Tourism is a very important cog in the wheel of the city and I don’t think that we’re taking it seriously as a priority. We’re moving forward with branding and mountain biking, but we need to do more to be proactive,” she said. - With files from CCCTA

Williams Lake Tribune Tuesday, October 23, 2012 A3


Tsi Del Del Enterprises celebrates 20 years Sage Birchwater Special to The Tribune Tsi Del Del Enterprises (TDD), a joint venture logging company owned by Alexis Creek Indian Band (ACIB) and Tolko Industries Ltd, celebrated its 20th anniversary on Friday, Oct 19 at Redstone. Chief Percy Guichon said the company has come a long way since it began with one skidder and a few chainsaw operators in 1992. “Now the company owns lots of equipment including a couple of logging trucks, and employs 30 employees and subcontractors, both aboriginal and non-First Nations,” Guichon said. He said several businesses run by independent

entrepreneurs are built around Tsi Del Del, and the company has consistently been among the top five logging companies in the region. Recently Chief Percy and company president, Otis Guichon, travelled to Moncton, N.B. to accept the aboriginal business leadership award for 2011, recognizing TDD for its long term environmental and safety record. Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett presented Chief Percy with a certificate from the provincial government recognizing the company’s achievement. “It’s really truly great to see entrepreneurial skills with First Nations moving ahead to create their own opportunities,” said Barnett, making special mention of the

post secondary education fund set up by the company to train young people. Tom Hoffman, manager of Tolko, recognized the leadership of Chief Percy, former chief Ervin Charleyboy, and former Tolko Woodlands manager, Don Niquidet for solidifying the joint venture. He said when Tsi Del Del became safe-certified in March 2008, it exemplified not just the company’s ability to produce logs but to care for its employees as well. Hoffman also credited TDD for its higher level land use planning to protect special places. “What makes this company a success is that the community has direct control over what happens on the landscape.” See JOINT Page A4

Vehicle thefts and break-ins keep Williams Lake RCMP busy Vehicle thefts and break-ins continue to keep RCMP busy in Williams Lake. Over the weekend RCMP responded to approximately 100 calls for service. Many of the calls were also in relation to disturbances, noise bylaws and assaults. In a press release, the RCMP highlighted some events: Oct 19 At 10:38 a.m. Williams Lake RCMP responded to a complaint in regards to  a 1996 Dodge Ram pick-up truck that was broken into. It appeared the perpetrator(s)  had tried to steal the vehicle.   The vehicle’s rear passenger-side window had pry marks where  the perpetrator(s)  tried to open the window but then smashed the window out  instead.   Entry was gained 

into the passenger-side door. Nothing inside the vehicle was disturbed, except for the ignition cover and outside cover, which were both damaged. Further investigation showed shavings of metal inside the ignition where suspect(s) tried to break the  ignition lock and steal the  vehicle. No suspects have been identified at this point. Two bicycles were stolen from a residence on Hodgson Rd overnight on Sept 8, 2012. The first is described as being a black and white Nakamura Monster 6.2. The second is described as being a grey Triumph.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the Williams Lake RCMP or call Crimestoppers. Police responded at 7:41 p.m. to the attempted theft of a ve-

hicle on Pigeon Ave. The perpetrator(s) broke out a back window and damaged the transmission. No suspects have been identified. Oct 20 At  2:49 a.m. police were called to a residence on 6th Avenue South where a male was reported to be trying to get into  a house. The female complainant   said the male was first trying the door handle and was yelling another person’s name.  The  female resident  initially thought the male was intoxicated and confused. The female home owner tried to scare the perpetrator off by activating the panic alarm on her car.   The resident called a friend who in turn contacted the police to attend.  Meanwhile the perpetrator was seen by the resident looking through the window at

her. The perpetrator then ran  off down the back alley.  The resident could  only describe the individual as a Native male,   6 feet tall, lanky and wearing all black.  Patrols by police were unsuccessful in locating the perpetrator.  Anyone with information concerning this incident, is asked to call the Williams Lake Detachment at 250-392-6211 or Crimestoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477). Police responded at 6:30 a.m. to a fight between two men at a residence on  Proctor Street.  One of the men was still upset with  the other   as a result of a previous assault. Consequently while both males   were drinking at the residence on Proctor Street, one tried to hit the other with a baseball bat.  The victim of the bat assault sustained minor injuries

and possibly a broken nose. Neither of the two men wished police to take any action and the injured individual refused medical attention. At 7:37 a.m. a caller reported a break and enter at the Cariboo GM dealership at 370 Mackenzie Ave S. Upon arrival, police observed that the showroom window to the building was broken  and  learned that a set of tires may have been stolen. No suspects have been identified and the matter is still under investigation. Police responded at 9:40 a.m. to the theft of a 1998 GM grey pick-up stolen from a residence on 12th Avenue North.  Police observed glass on the driveway, likely the result of a broken passenger side rear window of the extended cab. The owners of the vehicle heard a diesel truck start

up at approximately 4:15 a.m., heard it drive down to 11th Avenue and then head North on Highway 97. No suspects have been identified at this time and the theft is still under investigation. At 11:08 a.m. police received a report that  a 1999 Dodge Durango had been broken into and   the owner’s  car charger stolen. There were no suspects or witnesses to the event and no suspects were identified. Police received a report at 11:47 a.m. that a brown vinyl purse with a shoulder strap was stolen from   an unlocked vehicle parked  on  Tower Crescent. The victim of the theft later called to state that  she had recovered her purse in her neighbour’s backyard.  At 2:58 p.m. police were called to a report that tires were slashed

on a Toyota Tundra at a residence on Pigeon Avenue some time between midnight and 9:30 a.m. No suspects were identified. Oct. 22 Police received a call at 12:53 a.m. that there were three males outside  a residence on Latin Ave, using a white pickup to steal a Seadoo that was on a trailer.  When police arrived, the vehicle had already fled the scene with the Seadoo. Police made patrols in the area and located the white Chevy pickup and Seadoo abandoned in front of a residence on 3rd Avenue North. Police continue with this investigation and are seeking the  public’s assistance. Any information regarding this incident can be reported to the RCMP at 250392-6211.

Radar checks show drivers speeding through school zones Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A recent Speed Watch radar check showed that 40 per cent of drivers in Williams Lake were in excess of the school zone speed limit. “Some people could have been 31 or 32, but it was over 30, and there were some that were well over 30,� said volunteer Andy Sullivan. Members of Citizens on Patrol volunteer for Speed Watch and on Oct. 12, in conjunction with two RCMP auxiliaries and two RCMP traffic

members, spent around five hours at two different locations. The set up near Columneetza high school on Western Avenue and on Third Avenue North between Marie Sharpe and Sacred Heart Catholic elementary schools. “This came about as a result of concerns regarding speeding through school zones within our city. It was a coordinated undertaking to ensure our students will be safe,� Sullivan said. “That day we monitored 225 vehicles in total. Some tickets were issued to new drivers as well as speeders.�

Joint forestry venture to create stability Continued From Page A3 Chilcotin school trustee Joyce Cooper, who MC’d the event, admitted she was anti-logging when she first became a leader more than 20 years ago. She said she was told by her mentors that it didn’t matter what she wanted any longer, because as a leader she had to listen to the community. “We are out-of-the-box thinkers,� Cooper said. “We did the land use plan despite widespread opposition and distrust in the beginning.� Otis Guichon, who has been involved with the

company from its inception, said the joint venture began with Jacobson Forest Products in 1992. Then in 1994, when Riverside purchased Jacobson, TDD was awarded a fiveyear, 60,000 cubic metre license. “That’s when Tsi Del Del expanded into a highly mechanized roadside logging operation,� Otis said. “Now fifty cents per cubic metre goes to our post secondary education fund for band members.� In 1994 Otis started training youth in silviculture and eventually he formed his own silviculture contracting company. He has been president of

Tsi Del Del Enterprises since 2004. Former chief Ervin Charleyboy said the company got started when members of his community got tired of watching logging trucks going by hauling logs from their territory to Williams Lake. “I remember saying, ‘what are we going to do about it.’� He said the process to start the joint venture was a difficult one. “We had rough going for a while. Meetings and meetings. Then we started trusting each other and built that trust.� Don Niquidet, who served as a director for Tsi

Del Del Enterprises for 13 years, confirmed that some of the early meetings were hot. “We had our share of disagreements. You wanted a piece of the action watching those trucks going by. People wanted to go to work and they had the skills.� One of the achievements of TDD has been to include the broader nonFirst Nations community of Tatla-Tatlayoko-West Branch. Brian Hansen was hired to develop a land use plan that involved both communities, cutting in sensitive areas yet incorporating First Nations values. Peter Shaughnessy,

NEWS Minister for seniors visits lakecity Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Six weeks into his new portfolio as Minister of State for Seniors, Ralph Sultan heard first hand from seniors during a visit in Williams Lake. While at the Senior Advisory Council’s annual general meeting on Oct. 17, members pressed Sultan to advocate for free medical for seniors, to lobby that the Cariboo Memorial Hospital master plan move forward, and requested there be more funding to health authorities. Sultan responded when it comes to Medical Service Plan premiums, there is always debate about whether they should be scrapped and rolled into regular taxes. “People would think we were great until we said we were raising their taxes,” Sultan said. “People should understand that there’s no free lunch in this world and all those medical services you get have to be paid for. The MSP premium pays a small portion of the entire cost.” Cariboo Chilcotin Independent candidate Gary Young disagreed with Sultan. “Seniors in this province have worked hard for 40, 45, or 50 years

to pay taxes, volunteer, raise their kids, and worked with their backs, minds and hearts. In effect it’s the seniors that have created the wealth and equity we see around this province and have already paid for their healthcare and deserve to get it without any more financial constraints. “We made it and you were part of it. Please, don’t treat us as secondclass citizens,” Young told Sultan. Sultan replied he would love to live in that world; however, added the world Young described would have one quarter of the population demanding five per cent

of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) paid for by everybody else. “I think if we put it to a vote, those other folks might have their own views. I think it’s unrealistic to think that a quarter of the population is not going to be asked to pay a significant portion of the health services,” Sultan said, adding the province has a huge number of citizens in B.C., and the percentages will grow from 15 per cent to be 25 per cent of the total population. When Williams Lake resident George Atamanenko asked where Sultan sits on the Cariboo Memorial Hospital master plan being

implemented, Sultan responded he is no expert on the local hospital. “I have heard about it yesterday and today, that equipment is not as modern as it should be, that all of the hospital space is not being used, etc. etc. I think if Williams Lake needs an advocate in Victoria I will do my best, but you’ve got the feistiest raspyvoiced MLA advocating for you. Donna Barnett doesn’t stop until she’s done advocating, demanding and badgering people about getting the very best for Williams Lake,” Sultan said, adding he’ll be playing second fiddle to Barnett when it comes to advo-

cating for this part of the world. To Atamanenko’s query on increasing funding for health authorities, Sultan said the “magnitude” of the total health budget, $17 billion, is an ongoing major policy issue of the government. “There’s no question that in these belt-tightening times, the health budget, as well as all the other ministries of government has been squeezed and squeezed again,” Sultan said, adding it’s his hope as the province comes out of the recession there will be more money to spend on health and the other ministries as well.

Council meets with Minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan Mayor Kerry Cook and members of Williams Lake City Council met with minister of State for Seniors Ralph Sultan Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett October 16. Following a tour of Cariboo Lodge, Council met with the minister to discuss issues for seniors in Williams Lake, including the state of Cariboo Lodge, assisted living and residential care beds, and other issues. The minister indicated there is $20,000 available to the City for a project or projects that contribute to a more age-friendly community in Williams Lake. The City will submit an application for funding on a project to be determined. Council also learned that Williams Lake is one of 18 communities that will host a United Way pilot project called Better At Home, which provides seniors with services that will allow them to remain in their homes longer, such as housekeeping, grocery shopping, yard work, and friendly visits. Minister Sultan also visited Deni House, Retirement Concepts, and attended the Seniors Advisory Council’s Annual General Meeting while in Williams Lake. MLA Barnett announced Williams Lake will also be home to a DriveABLE centre, meaning seniors can access the program without travelling out of town.

I should have asked why FIPPA is being bullied through in such a rush with little  chance for debate. If  Mr. Harper has given up too much of Canada in this treaty, and many think he has, we’ll  have its 31-year lifetime to repent at leisure.    Meantime, JBS, the world’s largest meat packing corporation, is eyeing   XL Foods, the humungeous but troubled  meat processing company. If the sale does proceed, JBS and Cargill, both foreign owned, will   control more than 80 per cent of Canada’s beef processing.

Our Viewpoint

Not about wins and losses The attack and the counter-punch. The jab and the thrust. The set-up and the knockout blow. The winner and the loser. No, we are not talking about the latest round of MMA bouts. We are talking about the story that dominated North American media this week: the U.S. presidential debate. Even way up here in a foreign country, Wednesday morning discussion focused on how the president “came out swinging� and “hammered� the Republican challenger which followed the previous debate, where Mitt Romney “battered� a “passive� president, “knocking him back on his heels.� And it brought home the biggest flaw in what passes for democracy these days: the idea that it is about winners and losers. We love debate. To us it is an opportunity to present ideas we hope may be useful to others, have those ideas sharpened by outside insights and observations, and perhaps push them in directions the original proponent may

not have considered. It is the mechanism societies and individuals should be using for learning, education and growth. Instead, most people tend to use it as a bludgeon to force others into accepting their ideas as the correct ones. Do you think the words “that is a good idea Mr. President, if you combine it with our policy on this, we could come up with something special� will ever come out of Romney’s mouth? Or something similar from Barack Obama’s? No, the presidential debate is pitched, staged, and analyzed as if it were a heavyweight-title bout. These boys aren’t playing for consensus or the common good, they are playing to win. Instead of being about uniting a country — or, on a local level, a community — it becomes about dividing it.

ast week, I wrote about the importance of education, and how funding per student here in School District 27 has increased over the past decade. This week, I’d like to talk about the unique needs of rural and remote schools. Rural and remote schools face challenges that are quite different from urban centres. They have special transportation needs due to the large distances involved, they can face declining enrollment, and they may have vulnerable stuMLA d e n t s .  Musings After workDonna Barnett ing with education partners from all over B.C., and recognizing that rural and remote schools have different needs, our government has made changes to the funding formula for this year. The new model supports the needs of rural and remote schools through several supplements. The first of these is Funding Protection, which ensures that school districts will receive at least 98.5 per cent of the previous year’s funding, despite a dropping number of students. Second is Salary Differential, which gives extra funding to districts that have higher average salaries for educators.  Third is the Unique Student Needs supplement, which provides additional funding to address the unique circumstances of students who have special needs, students who require English Language Learning, and Aboriginal students. In addition, the Unique Geographic Factors supplement provides extra funding to overcome the challenges faced by small communities, rural locations, sparsely spaced schools, and schools with low or declining enrolment. This supplement will ensure an extra $268 million for qualifying districts this school year, including $11.2 million for vulnerable students, $1.5 million to help small, rural and remote elementary schools, and $3.7 million to overcome problems caused by low enrolment. Only through these sorts of supplements can we ensure that students at rural and remote schools have the same opportunities as students in bigger towns and cities. I’m happy to see these changes implemented to make education fair and equitable for all students. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for the Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Hough Memorial sets $40,000 fundraising goal Editor:  Are you familiar with the Hough Memorial Cancer Fund Society?  It is a local non-profit society founded in 1972 by Lillian Hough in memory of her husband, Bill, who died from undetected brain cancer.  Lillian passed away in 1998, but the society is dedicated to continuing the great work she

started. The sole purpose of the society is to provide cancer detection equipment for Cariboo Memorial Hospital. I find it incredible that Hough Memorial has been involved in purchasing almost $3 million worth of equipment for our hospital.  If you have had an operation or procedure at Cariboo Memorial, you probably had the benefit of a

piece of equipment purchased by the Hough Fund. This has saved many of us the stress, time, and expence of having to travel to another community to attend to our medical needs.  It has also helped recruit and retain much needed physicians and specialists in our community. The goal for 2012 is to raise $40,000 for a new gastroscope

Modern square dancing guaranteed fun Editor: I really like to dance. Oh, not the kind of dancing where you jiggle aimlessly to and fro and not the kind where you have to worry about leading, following and maintaining a good frame. Â I like to do modern square dancing. A caller gives easy instructions and the dancing is done in a safe, alcohol-free setting.

I get to dance to great music, socialize with friendly people and exercise mind and body at the same time. It’s multi-tasking at its finest. However, for every one person like me who wants to square dance, seven others must be willing to participate in the fun. It takes eight dancers to make a square and the more squares the better. If there are others out there who would be willing to join in the

modern square dance fun, check out the website at www.wmslk. for details. New dancer sessions start on Friday, Oct. 19, and your attendance would be most welcome. Turn off your TV, put down your computer mouse, get off the couch and come try something new. The more the merrier. Mary Anne Turner Williams Lake

for the operating room. With increased usage, it is necessary to replace some equipment every three years.  This enables our hospital to keep up with the latest digital technology on a continuing basis. Every dollar raised or donated to the Hough Fund is for equipment for our hospital.  Please remember this when you make donations “In Memoriam� of a friend or loved

one. The Society will send cards to the bereaved, acknowledging your donation.  Let’s support our community by supporting the Hough Memorial Cancer Fund Society.  More information can be found at Joan Magee Williams Lake

Plant an eyesore Editor: I read the blurb in the Tribune Sept. 25, 2012 on how wonderful the Pinnacle Pellet Plant is working. I can’t help but think this is done for the public to mitigate what a stinking, noisy, smokey eyesore it is for the town of Williams Lake. Darcy Christensen Williams Lake Editor’s note: The story Mr.

Christensen refers to appeared in our Celebrating Forestry special section, which was published to coincide with National Forest Week. The section celebrates forests and the industry of forestry. The Tribune has run stories on Pinnacle Pellet in our news section of the Tribune, with comments from the public and the plant’s neighbours on their concerns about air quality as it relates to Pinnacle Pellet. We have also run letters to the editor voicing similar concerns.

Gov’t timber report looks strong, foresters say Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The BC government’s action plan Beyond the Beetle takes forestry out of the political realm and puts it back into the scientific realm, the Association of BC Forest Professionals said last week. Speaking with the Tribune, ABCFP’s chief executive officer Sharon Glover said the report released by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations outlines the government’s plan to respond to a number of issues. “It’s a good report that answers a lot of questions that the special committee on mid-timber supply raised after touring the province last summer.” The plan to include forest professionals, communities, and First Nations is also welcoming, she said. “We’re delighted they realize they need the input of forest professionals and the expertise that

they bring to the table.” She’s also pleased the government recognizes the need to update inventory information, something the association’s been focused on for a number of years. “They’ve signalled it’s important. It would be nice if there was more money allocated, but until then we know they are seized with trying to get it done and they should be congratulated for putting it on the radar screen.” Glover emphasized the issue of whether to look at sensitive areas is very tricky, however said the fact the government is suggesting a sciencebased approach, that they’ve accepted that committee recommendation, means the association can only assume that forest professionals, as well as biologists, will be included in the discussions. “Those are the professionals that can look at, not only wildlife, but at the broader ecosystem,

and help out in that review. We also assume they are going to be looking at the long-term health of the forest.” Moving forward from the report, ABCFP plans to work with the government to develop various aspects of forest policy as it looks at various recommendations. “We’ll be working on them with various consultations with our members to see if we can get some input for them. We’ve got over 5,500 forest professionals that have the training and have thought about various issues and how to improve things in the forest. We certainly have the person power to offer advice.” It’s a step in the right direction, Glover said, in comparison to prior to the special committee being appointed. “I think it was mostly politics that was driving this. Now the recommendations are mostly coming from the ministry and it’s going to be

ministry staff that are taking a very careful considered look at these recommendations and working with forest professionals and others to come up with solutions.” When it comes to whether or not the mill at Burns Lake should be reopened, Glover said it’s a difficult decision for any politician to make. “They are well aware of the risks of making promises to any one mill when we have many, many small communi-

“We don’t know what that legislation will say. There are a number of policy issues about how it will work and how will a tenure holder be eligible to switch over and what the province might get in return,” Glover explained.

Stamps send ‘Roos hopping Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer It was exactly what you’d expect from a meeting between the Williams Lake Stampeders and the Quesnel Kangaroos — two teams who appear to, at least on the ice, not like each other. In a game where both teams chocked up 40-plus minutes of penalties, including several fighting majors, Williams Lake managed to march away with an 8-5 victory Saturday night in front of more than 500 fans at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. With the win Williams Lake improved to three wins and one loss on the campaign. “It was a typical Qusenel game,� said Stampeders general manager Kelly Kohlen. “We sort of get sucked into their style of hockey.� The Kangaroos, following goals from Justin Fulton (power play) and Levon Johnson, edged Williams Lake 2-1 heading into the second frame. There, Williams Lake blew it open, scoring six unanswered goals. A Kangaroos goaltending change from

lineup proved helpful as the newcomer potted a goal and added two assists for a three-point night. Lucas also ended with three points (2G, 1A), while Johnson contributed two assists. Kohlen said the trio had never played together before Saturday. “Our first line played well together,� he said. “They’d never played together and I think once they got a period under them they played well. Quesnel tried to match that line with their top line but our guys just dominated them.� Foote, for his part, made 41 saves in the winning effort, while shots on goal went 46-42 in Williams Lake’s favour. The Stampeders now have four more consecutive home games at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex — the next coming back to back this weekend, Oct. 27-28, against the Omineca Ice and last year’s unbeaten Smithers Steelheads, respectively.

Duo competes at worlds Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Two Williams Lake Shogun Martial Arts Academy students competed earlier this month at the World Karate and Kickboxing Council World Championships. Abrie Kilian, 32, and Carl Lam, 17, travelled to Saint-Hyacinthe, Que., along with Williams Lake Shogun Martial Arts Sensei Lee-Ann Lainchbury and team doctor Rochagne Kilian, from Oct. 2-7 for the event to represent Canada, joining other martial artists from countries around the world. The duo earned their spot at the world championships by qualifying at provincial and national tournaments held earlier this year. Both finished in the top four at nationals — also held in SaintHyacinthe in May — to go on to represent Canada. Lam, at his first world championships, competed in point fighting in the 16- to 17-year-old, under-55 kilogram division, bringing home a bronze medal for his efforts.

“It was a lot of fun,” Carl said, adding it was a bit intimidating to compete on such a grand stage. “It was my first time at worlds and I wasn’t quite used to the crowds, I guess.” Lee-Ann said Lam’s fight could have gone either way. “It was really close,” she said. “I told Carl I wanted him to go out and get the first point and he did, then the other guy answered back with one. “Carl got a two-point head kick, then so did the other guy. It was a lot of one point each, back and forth.” Abrie competed in continuous fighting in the men’s under-80 kilogram division against an opponent from England. “What an opportunity and what a privilege to once again represent Canada, B.C. and ultimately my dojo, and my community of Williams Lake,” Abrie said. “In the end I placed fifth overall in my division. I had a very good opponent.” Lee-Ann said both martial artists trained extremely hard in

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Standing strong for all the women in our lives

The real deal on breast cancer prevention With the wealth of health-oriented information available on the Internet, it can be all too easy to confuse reliable, scientific information with unfounded claims of danger. Here are a few breast cancer myths debunked: MYTH: Wearing an underwire bra can cause breast cancer. FACT: The Canadian Cancer Society reports that there is no reliable scientific evidence to support this claim. MYTH: Using underarm deodorant or antiperspirant causes breast cancer. FACT: Several scientific studies have examined this assertion and have disproved any conclusive links at this time. When going for a mammogram, however, women are asked not to use an underarm product containing aluminum, which might lead to inaccurate screening results. MYTH: Radiation emitted during a mammograpy can increase oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of developing breast cancer. FACT: Mammography technology uses only small, safe amounts of radiation. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation affirms that it would take exposure at least 100 times stronger than what is used in a mammogram to pose the kind of ~ tea house ~ ~ gift shoppe ~ risk that outweighs the benefits.

clusive that neither spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) nor induced abortion are linked with breast cancer. MYTH: A hard knock to the breast can predispose the bruised area to developing cancerous cells. FACT: There is no known link between bruised breast tissue and cancer. It is important, however, to be familiar with the contours and texture of your breasts so that any unexplainable tenderness, scaling, or skin irregularities can be checked out by a doctor. The most important fact of all is that early detection saves lives: the Canadian Cancer Society recommends an early detection plan of regular breast selfexaminations, mammographies every two years for women between 50 and 69, and clinical breast examinations for all women every two years.

She is the fourth generation in her family in Canada, stating that it all started with Catherine Ann Gunn and Archibald Buchanan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catherine Ann moved to Canada in the 1800s when she was 11 years old during the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Highland Clearancesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when the Scottish lords threw out poor people and brought in sheep,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Sutherland (northern Scotland) it was the worst. They would â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tumbleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the thatched cottages and burn them; a practice that sometimes resulted in the death of people unable to escape.â&#x20AC;? Catherine and Archibald married and moved to Miami, Manitoba and had 10 kids, each of whom had big families. Vivian was born in Saskatchewan, was raised in Surrey, lived in 100 Mile House for 12 years and moved to Williams Lake in 1971. She said that from day one her family emphasized their Scottish heritage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad played fiddle and loved old time Scottish tunes, and when family members visited from Glasgow and from Manitoba, it was highlighted even more,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than the music--itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Scots are very war-like people, and if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not fighting with their neighbors theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fighting among themselves. My Scottish heritage is what got me interested in history.â&#x20AC;?   She said that there is a natural connection between Royal Canadian Legions and Scottish heritage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly bagpipe bands, adding that Legions are a military-based organization and a pipe band is a military band. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember when I was nine years old there was a May Day parade in New Westminster. I walked all the way across the Pattullo Bridge to watch the parade because of the pipe band. Every chance I got, all my life, I listened to pipe bands: I always found them stirring and inspiring.â&#x20AC;? She said that she was Legion president when the Williams Lake Pipe Band started up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so delighted, and helped out any way I could. I think having a local pipe

COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK Thursday, Oct. 25 Adventure presentation  The Caribou Brain Injury Society is hosting an evening of storytelling and pictures by Colin Labelle, Wes Gregg, and Ryan Veetch who will share their voyageur trip to Hobson Lake in Wells Grey Park, a 200 kilometre trip using one of the Caribouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most legendary portage trails, the Hobson Trail. The event takes place Thursday, Oct. 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Central Cariboo Arts and Cultural Centre on Fourth Avenue.

band adds pride to a local Legion. Our band is very dear to my heart, and whenever I see them performing in a parade or at an event I choke back tears â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having a real pipe band at the cenotaph on November 11 makes all the difference in the world. The pipes are so special: when they play the lament and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fly pastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goes overhead with the fallen soldier formation, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly moving for the crowd.â&#x20AC;? At the Ceilidh guests can enjoy things like tatties and gravy, bashed neeps, haggis and roast beef. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because the Ceilidh includes all things Celtic, last year we served a Welsh soup, English roast beef, an Irish cabbage dish and Scottish haggis,â&#x20AC;? she said. Williams Lake resident Ron Hume, known for his dramatic and entertaining MC contribution at previous Celtic Ceilidhs and for his stirringly authentic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ode to the Haggisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Robbie Burns Night, takes pride in his Scottish heritage. He explained that his grandparents were from southern Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that he grew up in an environment rich with Scottish

tradition, history and culture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was young, living in Quesnel with my family, my dad was very involved with Robbie Burns nights. I used to watch him practicing the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Address to the Haggisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the mirror, acting it out. I started reciting it when I was about seven years old,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad played in the pipe band and I had a teacher who would play the bagpipes for me after school. I always loved the pipes. It is one kind of music that speaks to me â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and has done so all my life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also come from a military background, and my father instilled in me a real pride in where we came from: it was the way we were brought up. He would read to us from a book of Robbie Burnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work that was passed down from my grandparents,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scotland has had a hard time of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a country blessed with a lot of assets and resources, but the people are passionate and fearless. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique and fascinating background.â&#x20AC;? Vivian Macneil said that events like the Celtic Ceilidh and Robbie Burns Nights are events where the community gets to experience part of their culture, or part of one they wished they belonged to. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There

arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many ethnic cultural events hereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and this one is pretty true to the roots,â&#x20AC;? she explained. One attraction for the Ceilidh is that kids are invited, according to Macneil, who said that at the Celtic Ceilidh three generations will perform a Scottish dance: her oldest great-grandchild Gracie, her granddaughter Taya and her daughter Sandy. Five-year-old Gracie said that one thing she loves about dancing is twirling and wearing a kilt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started dancing when I was four years old, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned to dance with my mommy, Kirsten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just makes you happy to watch dancing,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited to dance at the Ceilidh.â&#x20AC;? Hume said that having kids at a Celtic celebration helps connect them as a family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bigger than their immediate family,â&#x20AC;? he stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is about history and belonging.â&#x20AC;? The Celtic Ceilidh hosted by the Williams Lake Pipe Band is on November 3 at the Royal Canadian Legion, and will include dancing to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Perfect Match.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tickets are available at the Legion and at About Face Photography.

Nature’s scribes discover strange beings at Scout Island At a recent workshop at Scout Island kids got to combine hands-on nature fun and unique writing games. They played ‘Eagle Eye,’ transforming themselves into ‘seeking predators’ and ‘hiding prey’ on a nature walk, armed with a mystery word from Anne Theresa White’s inspiration box. The children searched for their words while exploring, according to

Jenny Noble from Scout Island. “They had words like ‘blue’ (you’d be surprised now hard it is to find anything blue in nature this time of year), ‘swimming’ (ditto) and ‘plant’ (some people have all the luck),” she said. “We discovered an unexplained membrane on the water beneath the bridge, which looked like it might contain eggs, but when Julianne
