Region gets an early taste of winter BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff


The newly fallen snow was a treat for ski enthusiasts but more of a trick for motorists and this scary Halloween character guarding a home on Davis Street in Fruitvale Tuesday morning.

Lead and dust levels continue to drop


Lead and dust falls from Teck Trail Operations have been on a downward trend in the summer, but the levels in the air in Tadanac still remain high, says an official with the mining giant. In a September meeting of the Trail Health and Environment Committee, Teck superintendent

Winter is a part of life in the West Kootenay but its arrival often catches people by surprise. Such was the case on Tuesday as residents woke up to a variety of levels of snow accumulation from 22 centimetres in high elevations to a light covering in the valley. “We had a cold air mass for a couple of days then some moisture came up from the south,” explained Chris Cowan, weather forecaster for the Southeast Fire Centre. “But I don’t think winter is here for good yet.” He added there was over 15 ml of rain recorded in Castlegar Tuesday morning while snow dumped over 20 cm in the mountain ranges. “There’s a base of snow (in the mountains) that won’t go away. Some of it will melt but not all of it.” That’s good news for skiers but bad news for drivers. The West Kootenay Traffic Service was reporting several small accidents over the last few days including

of environmental remediation Mark Tinholt said in his air quality report that Teck has reduced overall metal emissions through equipment upgrades, changes to plant processes and improving maintenance and operations. This has resulted in a 95 per cent decrease in emissions of metals to air and water, something that has been decreasing since the


City of Rossland employee Curtis Nichols, spent Tuesday morning shovelling the more than 20 centimetres of snow that fell on the city. one Tuesday morning between the Nancy Greene Junction and Castlegar. Two people were reportedly taken to the Trail hospital. “Unfortunately this is usually what we see in the first week or two after the first snowfall,” said Sergeant Derrick Donovan. “We’ve had a few accidents over the last couple of days on the passes.” He also warned motorists of black ice. With near freezing temperatures and the road surface even cooler, the chance of black ice forming is very high. Cowan said drivers should expect those conditions for the rest

mid-1990s. The total suspended particulate is on a downward trend for East Trail and the hospital area, Tinholt noted, but the opposite was true for Tadanac, likely due to fugitive dust emissions. “Tadanac does have a higher concentration and it is closer,” said Tinholt. In January of 2011, the lead

in dust falls rose to .1 milligrams per square decimeter hour (mg/ dm2), the highest it had been in six years. It reached .8 mg/dm2 one year later in 2012. Teck has recently initiated a focused fugitive dust project, with the objective of further reducing fugitive emissions from the company’s site.

Meanwhile with the sudden snow comes the sudden surge of motorists looking to put winter tires on their vehicles. And Tuesday was no exception. “It’s pretty crazy,” said Verna Dickson at OK Tire in Trail. “In all the years we’ve had the business I don’t remember it being this booked up this far in advance.”

Vickie Fitzpatrick and Alita Parisotto judged more than two dozen wines at the Columbus Day Banquet and Wine Competition on Saturday at the Colombo Lodge in Trail.

Judgesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; put local wines to the taste test BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Many years ago the Italico Club of Trail put a series of long-standing viticulture traditions to the test, but now two Greater Trail women are the gatekeepers of the Columbus Day Banquet and Wine Competition. Vickie Fitzpatrick and Alita Parisotto judged more than two-dozen wines at the Columbus Day Banquet and Wine Competition on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our second year doing it,â&#x20AC;? the girls said in unison. Fitzpatrick and Parissotto smiled widely, adding that they were the first women to judge this competition last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they asked us back so I take that as a good sign,â&#x20AC;? Parisotto said with a giggle.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can tell that their heart and soul really went into these wines.â&#x20AC;? VICKIE FITZPATRICK

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love coming home. Trail will always be my home.â&#x20AC;? Aside from the familiarity of being home from Vancouver, Parisotto took judging the wine competition seriously. Both judges utilized a series of rigorous wine tasting guidelines with each bottle of wine, criteria ranged from appearance to nose and pallet to finish. But the judges unanimously agreed that judging a wine competition in Trail was unique in comparison to other tasting events.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can tell that their heart and soul really went into these wines,â&#x20AC;? Fitzpatrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people have been doing this for years and the community knows that the Gulch has been known to kick out some awesome wines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We found that out last year.â&#x20AC;? Parisotto whole-heartedly agreed and added that she realized many of the participants in the area have set-up mini-wineries in their basements instead of having a warehouse, like in a winery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent wine all around,â&#x20AC;? Parisotto said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an easy job even though everybody thinks it is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of this if a wine has a beautiful appearance, a lovely nose and a delicious palletâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to win

The Columbus Day Wine Competition winners were: Red 1 Gino Berno 2 Gord Mattson 3 Dave Kendrick Honorable Mention Beppe Bertuzzi Brian LeMoel White 1 Dave Ross 2 Victor Pozzobon 3 Gord Mattson Honorable Mention Sergio Peloso the wine competitionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we base our judging on all three categories.â&#x20AC;? Prizes were awarded for first, second and third places in both red and white wines during the banquet.

Council denies rezoning bid BY ARNE PETRYSHEN Rossland News

Council voted in favour of a staff recommendation to not advance the application of Brenda Trenholme to amend the OCP and zoning bylaw to permit a subdivision on her property at 2302 Happy Valley. The amendment is necessary as currently Trenholme lacks the 10 acre minimum stated in the Official Community Plan to subdivide in that location. After much discussion, council voted in favour of not allowing the amendment to go ahead, though it was split. Trenholme spoke during public input period saying that she does feel that it’s important to preserve agricultural land, but gave reasons for an exemption. “There is a reason that this land isn’t in the agricultural land reserve, and that’s because it’s steep, it’s rocky , it’s boggy and it’s not meant for large farms,” Trenholme said. “If you look around, most people that have farms have small plots and make good use of them locally.” Coun. Kathy Moore: said this was not an easy case. “I understand and sympathize with the applicants wish to subdivide, but really I feel compelled to support the staff recommendation, Rossland’s OCP and zoning has been consistent for years,” Moore said. “Happy Valley has been sort of set as the place that we weren’t going to subdivide any farther than it’s already been.”

Air quality monitored Governments call for new formula FROM PAGE 1

The project includes studying the feasibility of enclosing open piles in mixing areas to further reduce fugitive emissions. Air quality is monitored at a variety of locations throughout the Trail area. Metals (including lead and arsenic) and sulphur dioxide are measured at stations at Birchbank, Warfield, Butler Park

and Columbia Gardens, 24 hours a day. Dustfall is also collected on a monthly basis at 11 locations throughout the area. This information is collected and analyzed by Teck’s environment staff and routinely reported at THEC meetings, as posted in the meeting minutes on the THEP website, The Trail Health

Rain in the forecast FROM PAGE 1 At Integra Tire in Trail Larissa Johnson said the shop was filled for the day and already had a list of cars to attend to today. She said the nice weather for most of October kept people from thinking about winter tires. “But the season changed so quickly,” she added. The immediate forecast is calling for rain for the next couple of days with snow at higher elevations.

and Environment Committee (THEC) is a collaboration among the City of Trail, Teck, Interior Health, the BC Ministry of Environment and community members. The THEC grew out of the Lead Task Force, a partnership formed in 1989 to reduce preschool children’s blood lead levels. Lead levels were identified as a key area of focus, and to a lesser extent, arsenic, through extensive studies undertaken prior to the formation of the task force, and continuing through to the present. Currently, the air quality in Trail meets all applicable standards. The THEC has set goals to achieve continued reduction in lead and arsenic in air by 2018.


You’re a local government in the Kootenays, with an urgent and expensive infrastructure project. You apply for a provincial grant to help cover the costs. But the program is oversubscribed and you get a letter back saying “Better luck next time.” Now what? Borrow money and pay for the full shot yourself? Put it off until next year and try again? A lobby group for municipalities and regional districts in our region says this scenario happens all the time — but shouldn’t. The Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments is calling on the BC government to replace the present system of ad hoc grant funding with a “long term revenue sharing formula.” Association president Andy Shadrack, the regional director for rural Kaslo, says local communities provide a “broad range of services,” but can’t keep it up

when they only receive eight cents of every tax dollar. (The remainder goes to senior levels of government.) “We want the province to work with us to end the policy of having local governments compete against each other for grants,” Shadrack said in a news release. “We believe that every local government should be treated as a partner when it comes to long-term planning and budgeting for our infrastructure.” Shadrack said local governments need “ongoing, predictable” funding, versus the present approach, which makes it difficult for communities to accomplish their goals. In an interview, he added they haven’t yet specified how much they are seeking, but pointed to the federal gas tax fund as the kind of revenue sharing scheme they have in mind. Since 2005, the fund has provided permanent, per capita funding to local governments






for capital projects. “It was a huge step forward,” Shadrack said. “If infrastructure is important, then let’s have a solid funding base.” Shadrack said their request is critical in light of downloading from senior governments — municipalities and regional districts are asked to take care of certain services without additional funding, shifting the burden from income and sales taxpayers to property owners. “There’s an ongoing discussion about us taking on responsibility for dikes, but no offer of any money,” he said. “There’s an endless list.” The issue has already been raised by the BC mayors’ caucus, and Shadrack says as a region they want to put provincial party leaders on notice that they want a change. The call for the new approach to distributing provincial revenues comes following a meeting Friday involving 60 local government officials from throughout southeastern BC.

New changes aimed at unclogging courts BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

VICTORIA – Attorney General Shirley Bond has launched a new court management system designed to improve efficiency and cut down the backlog of criminal cases. The changes are based on a review of the system conducted by lawyer Geoffrey Cowper, which analyzed a “culture of delay” that resists change. Cowper concluded the problem is

partly because there is an incentive, particularly for defence lawyers, to delay cases, and no system for enforcing timely hearings of evidence. “During the review there was a general sense that judges and lawyers have their own, insulated sense of what constitutes timeliness and responsiveness,” Cowper wrote in his report, released in September. Bond announced the first phase of changes,

including the establishment of a new oversight organization. “The Justice and Public Safety Council will be asked to publish performance measures, and we’re going to look at designing and determining what those measures are, and there will be targets attached to them,” Bond said at a news conference in Kamloops Monday. Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association, said he welcomes the changes to a system that has prosecutors in some communities overwhelmed. “Not every courthouse has a delay problem,” Lakshman said. “We have acute delay issues in the busiest courthouse in the province, which is Surrey, as well as places like Fort St. John, Nanaimo and Richmond.” In Surrey, he said it currently takes 14 months or more to schedule a half a day for a brief trial. Defendants who have waited 18 months or

Samiran Lakshman, president of the B.C. Crown Counsel Association, says new measures are good for the long term, but more provincial court judges are needed to reduce a backlog of more can apply for and often receive a stay of proceedings because their case has taken too long. Both Lakshman and NDP justice critic Leonard Krog have repeatedly pointed to a reduction of 16 provincial court judges since 2005. Lakshman said the recent imposition of a government-wide hiring freeze has slowed the replacement of prosecutors, sheriffs and court clerks, because each new hire requires approval from the head of the public service. Bond has questioned why waiting time in courts goes up

even when the crime rate and the number of new cases declines. She says it should not take an average of seven appearances in court before a criminal case goes to trial. In his report, Cowper noted that 98 per cent of criminal cases end with a guilty plea or a stay of proceedings, but the system treats all cases as if they are going to trial. He said the number of new cases dropped sharply last year as most impaired driving charges were replaced with roadside suspensions, and now is at the same level as the early 1990s.

VANCOUVER - Opponents of pipelines across British Columbia and oil tanker traffic along the B.C. coast plan another round of demonstrations in the province today. The protests are part of the Defend Our Coast day of action slated for more than 60 communities. Sit-ins or rallies are planned for MLA offices including many on the Lower Mainland, Okanagan, southern Interior, northwest coast and in central and northeastern B.C. Many of the events are slated for noon but the demonstration in Prince George is planned for 5 p.m. Wednesday while protesters will gather outside Environment Minister Terry Lake’s Kamloops constituency office at 3:30 p.m. Regulatory hearings are mulling a plan by Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) to build an 1,100 kilometre dual pipeline from Alberta to the B.C. coast, carrying bitumen for shipment overseas while pumping condensate back to Alberta. Kinder Morgan Inc. has also applied to expand its pipeline, which moves oil from Alberta to the West Coast via the Trans Mountain network, crossing southern B.C. to a refinery and port in Burnaby.

Road safety blitz busts traffickers THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Mounties conducting a road safety blitz on two northern B.C. highways last week found more than just a few seatbelt violations - they also made several big drug busts. The traffic stops along Highways 5 and 16 were aimed at making sure people were buckled up and commercial vehicles were in good repair. But officers also discovered five kilograms of marijuana concealed in the pontoons of an inflatable fishing boat, leading to drug charges against a 32-year-old man from Williams Lake, B.C. On another stop, police found 11 kilos of marijuana in a large hockey bag, resulting in the arrest of a 27-year-old Alberta man. A 46-year-old man from McLeese Lake, B.C., is also facing drug charges after officers discovered marijuana, some hash and about $13,000 in cash in his vehicle. In addition, the driver of a commercial truck is facing charges after he admitted to smoking marijuana and taking the pain killer Percocet that had not been prescribed to him.

PEOPLE OBITUARIES FISCHER, JOHN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was born in Regina April 2, 1920 to parents John and Anna, and passed away in his sleep October 21, 2012. He was the last surviving member of a family of nine - two brothers and six sisters. John loved sports and his promising hockey career ended abruptly in 1941 with an eye injury. He was the goaltender with the New York Rovers, the farm team for the Rangers. John played every game of the year in 1940-41 for the Rovers until the incident with 3 games left in the season. As well, John was a ďŹ rst-rate young boxer. He won the welterweight division Championship of Saskatchewan in 1937. John was employed as a millwright machinist at Cominco for 28 years and was known in Trail as a colourful and feisty softball pitcher for several years starting in 1947. He is survived by Jean, his wife of 67 years, sons David and Gordon and daughter-in-law Marion, ďŹ ve grandchildren: Marjorie, Michael, Jonathan, Zachary and Benjamin, and three great grandsons: Jordon, Zachary and Kai. Johnny was predeceased by daughter Marjorie Fischer, RN, 1968 graduate of St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Nursing in 1969, and two infant children. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remains have been donated to the UBC Department of Cellular and Physiological Sciences, Faculty of Medicine (Body Donation Program) to be followed by cremation. Private services have been held. Donations may be made to charities of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice.


Activist fought for American Indian causes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - Russell Means spent a lifetime as a modern American Indian warrior. He railed against broken treaties, fought for the return of stolen land and even took up arms against the federal government. A onetime leader of the American Indian Movement, he called national attention to the plight of impoverished tribes and often lamented the waning of Indian culture. After leaving the movement in the 1980s, the handsome, braided activist was still a cultural presence, appearing in several movies. Means, who died Monday from throat cancer at age 72, helped lead the 1973 uprising at Wounded Knee - a bloody confrontation that raised Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awareness about the struggles of Indians and gave rise to a wider protest movement that lasted for the rest of the decade. Before AIM, there were few national advocates for American Indians. Means was one of the first to emerge. He sought to restore Indiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pride in their culture and to challenge a government that had paid little attention to tribes in generations. He was also one of the first to urge sports teams to do away with Indian names and mascots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one except Hollywood stars and very rich Texans wore Indian jewelry,â&#x20AC;? Means said, recalling the early days of the movement. And there were dozens, if not hundreds, of athletic teams â&#x20AC;&#x153;that in essence were insulting us, from grade schools to college. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all changed.â&#x20AC;? AIM was founded in the late 1960s to demand that the government honour its treaties with American Indian tribes.

Persistence pays off for Billy Idol fan THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE - Michael Henrichsen has ideas about how he might celebrate his 26th birthday this week. First, Billy Idol rolls up in a limo and tells him to hop in. There are women everywhere. And later, when the British rock icon takes the stage and rips into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rebel Yell,â&#x20AC;? bras start flying and 1,800 of his closest friends go wild. Far-fetched? Maybe not. After a two-year campaign that was part resume stunt, part charity drive and part heartfelt effort to get his farflung friends together for a great time, the irrepressible Seattle man has actually persuaded Idol to play his birthday party Friday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is surreal,â&#x20AC;? Henrichsen says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should not be happening.â&#x20AC;? So why is it? In his bedroom, surrounded by Cyndi Lauper and Madonna records, a drumstick he picked up at an Idol show two years ago, and rock posters, Henrichsen explains: In October 2010, he had just turned 24 and was having an early life crisis. Friends were getting married and moving away. He was working three jobs and making little progress paying off $40,000 in college loans. Salvation came over the stereo at the Bellevue Square Mallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billabong clothing store, where he worked. It was â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Wedding.â&#x20AC;? Henrichsen turned to a coworker: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be cool if we got Billy Idol to play at my birthday party?â&#x20AC;? She laughed. He laughed. No way, right? But he went home and thought about it. He loved the way Idol blended pop and rock. Idol seemed like a fun guy. Henrichsen loves other music from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s, but he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see Prince or Duran Duran agreeing. Idol, who


Michael Henrichsen created a website and enlisted friends and celebrities around the world in a two-year effort to convince Idol to come play a concert on Oct. 26 at a Seattle music venue to raise money for charity and celebrate Henrichsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. lives in Los Angeles, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to leave his time zone. The first step was getting a friend, Jim Stamper, to build him a website, . â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was never gonna work,â&#x20AC;? Stamper says. The next step was to get people to look at the website. Henrichsen hauled a boom box through a deserted Pike Place Market at night, dancing as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mony Monyâ&#x20AC;? blared, then

posted a video of it. He and friends held a banner over Interstate 5. But the site didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start getting much attention until he decided to collect some celebrity endorsements. Comedian Kevin Nealon came to town to do standup, and Henrichsen got him on a 12-second video, telling Idol, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You gotta come to Seattle next October to do ...â&#x20AC;? Endorsements from other B- and C-listers followed: musician

5)&,005&/":n4 05& &/":n4 0/-:

Rick Springfield, former Seattle Mariner Jay Buhner, porn star Ron Jeremy. Hanging out at book signings and other celebrity appearances became a fourth job. Only Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue and comedian Tom Green turned him down. Local media outlets started to notice. And the Google news alerts made their way to Idolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people. They called Henrichsen and told him the campaign was cool, but that they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promise anything. In the meantime Henrichsen, who sings, plays guitar and does a passable Idol impersonation, put together an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s cover band, Nite Wave. They began playing charity concerts dubbed Billy Idol Aid and raised more than $10,000 for the American Red Cross and Northwest Harvest,

which supplies meals to food banks. But when October 2011 came around, Idol didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show. Instead, he sent a video, saying he was sorry he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it - but there was always next year. Finally, last August, Idolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people called from Japan, where he was touring, and said Idol was in, with his band. Henrichsen says he started screaming and running laps around the mall. And when 900-plus people showed up for Billy Idol Aid IV, they were treated to an official video announcement from the man himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people of the world have spoken!â&#x20AC;? Idol thundered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dream will become reality ....â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna be pretty much the coolest night ever,â&#x20AC;? says Henrichsen, whose birthday was Monday.

tockton-on-Tees, a small city in northeastern England, has only one claim to fame: the first railway tracks were made and laid in the city in 1822, and the first-ever train ran on those tracks in 1825. But it might one day have another claim, also related to transportation: a locally based startup company called Air Fuel Synthesis has just produced the first gasoline from air and water. It isn’t a lot of gasoline – five litres (one gallon) in two months – but Peter Harrison, the company’s chief executive, hopes that within two years they will build a larger plant producing a tonne a day. He envisages refineryscale operations within fifteen years. “We’ve taken carbon dioxide from air and hydrogen from water and turned these elements into gasoline,” Harrison told a conference at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London. Since the carbon dioxide that goes into the air when this fuel is burned exactly equals the amount that was taken out of the air when it was fabricated, it is a carbon-neutral fuel. Provided, of course, that the electricity used in the pro-

cess comes from renewable sources. No wonder that people who worry about global warming are excited about this breakthrough – but they should get excited slowly. The question was never IF you could create a complex hydrocarbon like gasoline from just air and water, but HOW MUCH it costs to do it, compared to just pumping oil out of the ground and refining it. The answer in the past has been: far too much. Splitting water molecules to get hydrogen is expensive in terms of the electricity required. Carbon dioxide is easily available as the byproduct of burning coal or oil, but using that CO2 as the feedstock for artificial gasoline only postpones the moment when it gets into the atmosphere by a few days or weeks. If you want a truly carbon-neutral fuel, then the carbon dioxide you use must come straight from the air. Prototype machines have been built (by Klaus Lackner of Columbia University and David Keith of the University of Calgary) that can extract CO2 from the air in industrial quantities, but the price per tonne at the moment is about $600.


DYER World Affairs That’s far too much, but as Lackner points out, the cost of any new technology plunges steeply once it goes into volume production. And the cost of getting hydrogen from water may also drop dramatically. Daniel Nocera of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has developed a catalyst made from cobalt and phosphorus that can split water at room temperature. “I’m using cheap, Earthabundant materials that you can mass-manufacture,” Nocera said in 2008. “As long as you can charge the surface, you can create the catalyst, and it doesn’t get any cheaper than that.” So if the hydrogen is cheap, and the cost of extracting carbon dioxide from the air also falls dramatically, how much would it cost to combine them into gasoline?

That’s what Air Fuel Synthesis is working on: an integrated, scalable industrial process that takes carbon dioxide from the air and hydrogen from water, combines them into methanol, and then turns that into gasoline. Peter Harrison is cagey about his current production cost per litre: at the “proof-ofprinciple” stage, everything costs a fortune. But as he told “The Independent” in a recent interview, “You’re in a marketplace where the only way is up for the price of fossil fuel. At some point there will be a crossover where our fuel becomes cheaper.” David Keith sees it the same way. “You’re selling this fuel, and they’re burning it, putting carbon in the air, but then you’re recapturing the same amount of carbon and selling it to them again. That’s a business model that could conceivably take a whack at the global transportation market, which is the hardest part of the climate problem to attack.” Maybe Harrison’s process will not win the race to capture that market. Maybe the cheaper option will be to grow green algae in waste water or salt water, crush it to extract the oil from it, and then refine the oil into

gasoline, diesel and so on. (Exxon-Mobil is currently spending about $100 million a year to develop that process.) But one way or another, the gasoline we put in our vehicles in 25 years’ time will probably not come out of the ground. An entire industry employing millions of people, and the national budgets of entire countries, and much of the military planning by the world’s great powers, all rest on the assumption that this will never happen. Of course it will. The pressure to cut greenhouse gas emissions will grow as the temperature rises, and the desire for “energy independence” will only get stronger as oil price rises. Back in the 1890s, it was still unclear whether the new “horseless carriages” would ultimately be powered mainly by gasoline, steam or electricity. But it was already clear to those with any understanding of the interactions between markets and technology that the day of the horse-andbuggy was over, and the smart money was already getting out of buggy whips.

MLA has facts wrong on TFW Bill Bennett should spend more time researching his facts before defending the use of Temporary Foreign Workers (TFW) in BC mines. In 2007 Dehua International Mining applied to the federal government to use TFWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from China. But in March 2011 BC Jobs Minister Pat Bell boasts each of the four Chinese owned mines would create â&#x20AC;&#x153;300-400 jobs... plus another 5,000 to 6,000 spin off jobs.â&#x20AC;? No mention of guest workers. In November 2011 , BC Premier Christy Clark claims $1.4 billion investment from China in BC mine development will â&#x20AC;&#x153;create over 6,700 jobs and other economic benefitsâ&#x20AC;? under the BC Jobs Plan - still no mention of TFWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. By April 2012, Prime Minister Harper changes TFW rules allowing companies to pay TFWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15

per cent less than prevailing Canadian wages. In 2012 Dehua advertises jobs to Canadians but requiring Mandarin as a second language and wages reflecting Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 per cent wage reduction strategy. Dehua then announces it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find Canadian workers and will import 200 miners from China to their Murray River operation, with cheerleader Pat Bell saying Canadians lack skill in coal mining. Under pressure from United Steelworkers, Bell backs off, suggesting Chinese workers will learn 100 English words related to safety and be able to train Canadians. Shocking, considering the fact 50,000 miners were killed in Chinese mines between 20012011. The latest is a Tyee inves-

tigation revealing employment agencies in China illegally charging miners C$12,500 to come work in Canada. Meanwhile, PM Harper introduces the Canada-China Investment Treaty allowing foreign investors to sue Canadian taxpayers for interfering with their profiteering. If Mr. Bennett cared about the citizens of BC or the coal miners in his own Kootenay East riding, he would understand the ramifications these policies will have on our communities and province. Canadian workers will ultimately be forced to work for less as they compete against cheap foreign labour in their own country! Alex Hanson President, United Steelworkers Local 9346 Sparwood, B.C.

Is multiculturalism stifling bilingualism? THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Have the two forces that have defined Canadian culture for the past 40 years - multiculturalism and bilingualism turned on each other? The final release of 2011 census data this week will offer Canadians some insight into the answer. Today, Statistics Canada will publish language data showing how many people speak English, how many speak French, and how many speak a myriad of other languages - a consequence of increasingly diverse immigration. In the last census, in 2006, the number of people who called French their mother tongue was almost - but not quite - on par with the number of people who identify other languages as their first.


If the trend lines continue, as the experts expect they will, they could cross come Wednesday. Measured in terms of percentage of the total population in Canada, French is expected to continue its long, slow decline as a mother tongue and â&#x20AC;&#x153;otherâ&#x20AC;? languages will continue their ascent, with the number of allophones - those with a mother tongue other than Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two official languages - surpassing their francophone counterparts. So have we reached the point where the twin forces unleashed during the 1970s are now competing forces, with multiculturalism drowning out bilingualism? Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commissioner of official languages understands well the temptation to

answer that question with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes â&#x20AC;? - especially if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a francophone in Quebec. But in fact, Graham Fraser said in an interview, the answer is â&#x20AC;&#x153;No.â&#x20AC;? Fraser draws his answer from the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism that was published in 1969. It was the report that set Canada on the path of becoming a country defined by bilingualism and multiculturalism, two policies that were â&#x20AC;&#x153;linked at birth, if you like: the Siamese twins of Canadian social policy,â&#x20AC;? Fraser said. At the time, there was a push to give Canada a third official language: Ukrainian. There were about 450,000 Ukrainian speakers in the 1950s, Fraser recounts. By 1981, there were about

a tenth as many. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an indication how rapidly language usage can change,â&#x20AC;? Fraser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has not been that kind of change in francophone communities.â&#x20AC;? Other languages and cultures have always been popular in Canada, and in some communities those third languages are in the majority. But no single â&#x20AC;&#x153;otherâ&#x20AC;? language is giving French or English a run for predominance across the country or even in a single region. And none of those languages has the staying power of French or English. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Historically, the pattern in Canada has been that immigrant community languages do not survive to the third generation as a language spoken at home,â&#x20AC;? Fraser said.

Ski swap set for Saturday BY TIME STAFF Nothing like heavy snow and a chilly nose to get the heart racing for the ski season, and there’s nothing like the Red Mountain Racers’ annual ski swap to get new and old skiers outfitted for it. The Red Mountain Racers will be holding its annual Ski Swap on Saturday at the Willie Krause Field House with tons of new and used gear at bargain prices. Gear check-in goes from 8:30 to 11 a.m. at the low cost of $1 per item, and experienced vol-

unteers will be present to help price and sort items. Vendors such as Village Ski Hut from Nelson, Mallards in Castlegar and Powder Hound from Rossland will be unloading new gear at discount prices. The RMR executive will also be on hand to take registration for the Nancy Greene Ski League. The League is for skiers age five to 12 who have the ability to ride Red Chair.

Knippelberg defeats Davis

Beaver Valley Recreation’s Karate Dojo sent three competitors to the Zone 1 and 2 playoffs on Saturday each looking for a spot in the provincial tournament. Tyson Nelson, 9, Megan Campsall, 9, and Macy Verigin, 10, were the only competitors from the entire Kootenay-Boundary region to attend this year’s playoffs, as over 200 competitors aged seven to 65 from across the Thompson-Nicola-Okanagan and Kootenay-Boundary regions gathered in West Kelowna for the two-day tournament to try and qualify for the B.C. Provincial Championships in Burnaby Nov. 17th at B.C.I.T. Amateur Karate practitioners have a choice between Kata, Kumite, and Kobudo Weapons and are judged using a base score of 6.0. Five judges score the Kata by dropping the highest and lowest scores to come up with an average 18.0 base line with only the top-four scores qualifying for the provincials. Macy scored an impressive 18.1 and was awarded a bronze medal, qualifying to go to the provincial championships. However, Megan and Tyson, in his first tournament, narrowly missed qualifying as both scored a hard fought 17.4, but placed fifth in their respective divisions. “I am so proud of these students, they all were amazing,” said Karate sensei Scott Sheldon in an email. “Especially as each one worked so hard in

are stacked with Hall of Famers - Willie Mays, Ty Cobb, Carl Hubbell, Al Kaline and many more - yet they’ve never faced each other in the post-season. Not too much recent history, either. The clubs have played only 12 games since interleague action began in 1995, most recently last year at Comerica Park. That series was notable because the Tigers fired pitching coach Rick Knapp following the final game, a day after Barry Zito and the Giants trounced Max Scherzer in a 15-3 romp. Much has changed since then. Prince Fielder arrived in Detroit this year after a seasonending injury to Victor Martinez, and teamed with Cabrera as a most formidable tandem. Melky Cabrera joined the Giants and won MVP honours at the All-Star game. But he was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball a month later for a positive testosterone test, and isn’t on the post-season roster. The Giants bol-

stered their infield by trading for scrappy Marco Scutaro in late July and fortified their outfield a few days later by getting Pence from Philadelphia. Earlier this year, Pence’s bad-hop grounder broke a bone below Cabrera’s eye and caused a bloody gash that needed eight stitches to close. Cabrera recovered fine, and will be the first Triple Crown winner to play in the World Series since Carl Yastrzemski and Boston lost in 1967. The Tigers also have Verlander totally rested for the opener. The reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner is dominating this post-season, going 3-0 with a 0.74 ERA, striking out 25 in 24 1-3 innings. Hardly the form he flashed in the All-Star game, when he couldn’t control his 100 mph heat and Sandoval’s triple highlighted a five-run first inning. Cain wound up with the win, the NL romped and earned home-field advantage in the World Series.

Right choice to remove daughter from bullying in-law


Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

not with her stepfather and me. I’ve been the one to support her and be there her whole life. Now she’s living with her biological father, and it breaks my heart. He’s a good dad, but I feel like I let her down. I write today because I am having a hard time forgiving my mother-in-law. I understand that our conflicting parenting styles can be hard on her in her house. What I can’t understand is why she’s taking it out on my daughter. -Mother in Mud Dear Mother: You made the right choice to get your daughter out of the home of your bullying, stubborn

going to be together. Hank is a great father to our children, but I cannot find it in my heart to let this go. He claims there was no affair, but I don’t believe it. It is weighing heavily on my heart. How can I forgive him? -- Lost Dear Lost: Addicts say and do whatever they have to in order to score what they need. Your problems are bigger than whether or not Hank slept with another woman. He may love his children, but he is a terrible role model. Until he gets clean and sober, he is no good to any of you. Please contact Al-Anon ( and Nar-Anon ( and ask for help. Dear Annie: I had to respond to “Not a Meanie,” whose sister misinterprets everything she says. I could have written that. My sister hears only what she wants to hear. When making plans

for anything, large or small, “Ellen” would hear something entirely different from what I said. She would then complain to our middle sister, and it could take weeks to fix the misunderstanding. My solution was to

email all plans to Ellen and copy our other sister. Then there was a written record and no chance of my looking like the bad guy. “Meanie” should try this. It will save her a lot of frustration. -Been There in Hamden,

Conn. Dear Hamden: This is a great idea -- as long as you communicate only in writing. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains the same number only once.

mother-in-law. While we would have recommended that your husband put his foot down a little harder, apparently neither of you could set boundaries that stick. Until this situation is resolved, it may not be possible to forgive the woman for her unconscionable behavior. Please find a way to get out of there as soon as possible. Dear Annie: I’ve been with “Hank” for what seems like a hundred years. He is an alcoholic and a drug user. Last year, in an effort to save our marriage, he was in and out of several rehabs. None worked. Here’s the real problem. While in rehab, he relapsed and was kicked out, along with several others. I refused to pick him up, so all of them stayed in a hotel room together. While there, Hank used one of the other addicts (a female) to get drugs and alcohol. He promised her that they were

Dear Annie: I’ve been out of work for two years. My family has suffered greatly, and my daughter’s mild depression turned severe when this started affecting her life. Recently, my in-laws were kind enough to let the three of us move in so we could save what little we have. But the summer could not have gone worse. My mother-in-law has turned into a bully. She doesn’t approve of how I raise my daughter and has been taking it out on the child. Mom calls her hurtful names and has told her that all of our financial problems are her fault. My husband has spoken to his mother numerous times, and I have, as well. But she is stubborn. My daughter has a history of self-harm and low self-esteem, so we began to work on alternate living situations. Sadly, I know the best place for my daughter right now is

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Take a realistic look at your life to see if you have enough money and resources to live the way you want to live. It’s good to know what you have and what you don’t have. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Lately, relationships have taken on a serious quality. Remember that for a relationship to be successful, you must be as good for your partner as he or she is for you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You will take your work responsibilities seriously today. Because of this, choose work that is routine and requires attention to detail. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Carefully assess your situation with respect to children, sports and social events. What are your responsibili-

ties in these areas? It’s important to know this. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a good day to assess what you need to do to secure your home base. Think about repairs to where you live and possible residential moves. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Careful planning can make a difference to your immediate future. Talk to others about what you can do to achieve the goals you want to achieve in the next two years. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a good day to think about your budget, earnings and expenses. What can you do to reduce your debt? Even a little at a time will make a difference. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Today marks a turning point for you. You’re starting to create a new identity for yourself, so quite literally,

today is the first day of the rest of your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day to think about how you can streamline your life, because you will be giving up people, places and possessions in the next few years. How should you begin? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your relationship with clubs and groups is an impor-

tant part of your life now. It’s important to be true to yourself and not sell out to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Today marks the beginning of a time of harvest for your sign. In the next few years, you’ll see clearly what is working and what is not. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Ask yourself what special preparation you need to do

to achieve your goals in a few years. Training and homework always pay off. YOU BORN TODAY You are a complex being. Outwardly, you appear solid, strong and very much in control of your world. But inwardly, you are whimsical, imaginative and constantly changing. You like your world to be orderly, which is why you like to maintain control. In the coming year, you will build or construct something impor-









tant to you. (Your rewards soon will follow.) Birthdate of: Pablo Picasso, artist; Ciara, singer; Coco Robicheaux, musician. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
