Scary Halloween eye health risks B.C. doctors of optometry cautio parents to consider potential risks to children during Halloween. It’s not uncommon for this enjoyable holiday to take some notso-fun turns, and there are things people can do to help protect kids - and their vision. One of the main concerns doctors of optometry have is the potential danger associated with the use of decorative or cosmetic contact lenses. “Many people don’t realize contact lenses are medical devices,” says Dr. Surjinder Sahota, president of the BC Association of Optometrists. “And just like prescription contacts, decorative contact lens users should have their eye health examined by a doctor of optometry to ensure their eyes are in good health and to have the lenses properly fitted before using them.” Many retailers, night markets,

beauty salons, and online vendors dispense decorative lenses. Without custom fittings or directions for safe and proper care from an eye health professional, these consumers are at risk for serious eye health complications like corneal scratches, allergic reactions, conjunctivitis and other bacterial infections. Most of these complications are due to improper use and poor fit, and can lead to permanent damage to the eyes, including vision loss. Another concern doctors of optometry warn parents about is pedestrian traffic injuries. “We want kids to be safe this Halloween, and that includes being visible to motorists,” says Dr. Sahota. “BC Doctors of Optometry encourage parents to pick up free “Be Seen. Be Safe.” reflective stickers for their children’s Halloween costumes.” The reflective stickers are available to parents across the province at

a B.C. doctor of optometry’s office, whose locations are listed at The reflective stickers are also provided to RCMP detachments. About 10 per cent of all pedestrian traffic injuries involve children six to 15 years old and occur between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Traditional Halloween activities such as trick-or-treating can be risky because there are more children on the street than usual, and they tend to be excited and pay less attention to traffic safety. Here are some Halloween safety tips from B.C. doctors of optometry: • Avoid decorative or cosmetic contact lenses, which may obscure vision and increase the risk of complications like eye infections. If your child is very adamant on wearing them, make sure to take them to a doctor of optometry for a proper eye health assessment and fitting.

Come! Get to know us. Call today to schedule a personal visit 250.305.1131

• Have a responsible adult accompany trick-or-treaters. • Use iron-on reflective fabric or tape – or pick up a “Be seen. Be safe.” reflective sticker for children’s costumes and/or coats. • Don’t wear a mask, use hypo-allergenic make-up instead – children need to see where they’re going. • Carry a flashlight. • Don’t crisscross the street while trick-or-treating – go down one side of the street to the end, then back on the other side. • Avoid costumes that restrict movement of the head, so children can still easily look both ways before crossing the street. • Ensure that the path to your door is well-lit for trick-or-treaters. • To avoid an eye injury or vision loss, stay clear of firecrackers and sparklers and keep young children away from them. Remember to “Be seen. Be safe.” and have a Happy Halloween!



Prince George cancer lodge opening has been delayed The opening of the Kordyban Lodge has been delayed due to difficulties encountered by one of the sub-contractors. Another sub-contractor is in place and work is resuming to ensure the delay is as minimal as possible. The Kordyban Lodge, which will provide accommodation for individuals and their caregivers travelling to Prince George for cancer treatment, was expected to open in January 2013. A new timeline for the lodge opening is being developed. “This is an unfortunate situation that is beyond our control and we are sympathetic to everyone who has been and will be affected,” says Margaret Jones-Bricker, regional director, Canadian Cancer Society, Northern Region. “Our local contractor, Wayne Watson Construction, has worked very hard to find a resolution that has allowed us to continue work on the lodge.” The Canadian Cancer Society will provide updates on the timeframe for the opening through the Kordyban Lodge website (www.kordybanlodge. ca). In the interim, the Society is continuing to provide financial support for eligible people who may experience financial difficulty either travelling for their cancer treatment or for accommodation.

1-888-939-3333 and Northern Regional Office 250-564-0885 may also be contacted to inquire about alternative accommodation options. When complete, the Kordyban Lodge will cover 25,000 square feet and will include 36 beds for patients and their caregivers. The $10-million facility will be the fourth Canadian Cancer Society lodge in B.C. The other lodges are located in Victoria, Vancouver and Kelowna. The lodge will provide full-meal services as well as a family room, the Novak Family Spiritual and Meditation Room, the West Fraser Timber Lounge, Canfor Dining Room, Northline Credit Unions Library, TELUS Activity Room, and many more services. “The Kordyban Lodge will support cancer patients and their families from rural communities across the North,” adds Jones-Bricker. “It will be a tremendous resource and a compassionate and positive environment – we are all looking forward to its opening and we thank the entire Northern community for the support that has made the lodge possible.” In 2012, it is estimated that more than 23,300 people will be newly diagnosed with cancer in British Columbia. Of these patients, approximately 1,000 will reside

The number of totally new drugs in the research “pipeline” is increasing. These are new molecular entities, not “me too” type variations of medications already on the market. There is a trend to looking for medicines for rarer, under-treated diseases like melanoma, lupus and hepatitis C...good news for sufferers of those diseases. One of our goals as your pharmacist is to keep current on all the new drugs that are coming on the market. Lifetime learning is a philosophy we believe in. It helps us be better pharmacists and be a better healthcare resource for you.

Gaming grants support education, community groups Nineteen District Parent Advisory Councils (DPACs) and Parent Advisory Councils (PACs), and one community group have received a total of $88,860 in Community Gaming Grant funding from the Government of B.C. Across British Columbia, more than 1,500 PACs and DPACs will share up to $12 million in grants, and 141 community groups will share $2,663,704 in provincial gaming revenue. Community Gaming Grants for Parent Advisory Committees help local PACs support important programs such as drama, writing, debating, music, and student societies. Community Gaming Grants help local groups provide important services for British Colum-

bia families. Grant recipients in this round of funding offer programs in arts and culture, human and social services, environment and sport, and Parent Advisory Councils (PACs). “It’s great to have some extra support for these wonderful organizations, and I’m glad to see PACs and community groups in CaribooChilcotin getting funding through Community Gaming Grants,” says Cariboo-Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett.

Protesters denounce pipeline expansion TOM FLETCHER Black Press More than 2,000 protesters gathered on the B.C. legislature lawn Monday, some promising to provoke arrests as well as criticizing proposed heavy oil pipelines from Alberta to the B.C. coast. Organizers offered training in civil disobedience techniques to the more than 1,000 people who signed up for the protest, under the banner of Defend Our Coast. Sponsored by Greenpeace and the Council of Canadians, the coalition includes unions, aboriginal leaders and environmental organizations. Victoria police were out in force to back up legislature security, who locked the buildings down and turned away visitors for the day. The protest focused on two proposed projects, Enbridge’s North-

ern Gateway pipeline from northern Alberta to Kitimat and the pending application by Kinder Morgan to twin its oil pipeline that has been carrying Alberta oil to Burnaby and Washington state for more than 60 years. Among the speakers was David Coles, president of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union. He said his union is “diametrically opposed” to pipeline expansion, despite the fact it represents employees at the Chevron refinery in Burnaby that is supplied by the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Alberta. The new proposals are “job killers” because more diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands will be shipped out raw, either from Burnaby or Kitimat, Coles said. Protesters ringed the crowd with sections of black banner described as being the length of an

oil tanker, and staked it to the legislature lawn. That is technically a violation of legislature rules, which are aimed at preventing people from setting up tents and other structures on the lawn. Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations group on B.C.’s North Coast, said the protest is designed to show Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Christy Clark that people are prepared to “stand in front of the bulldozers” to stop the projects. Other speakers included federal Green

Party leader Elizabeth May and B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert. Maude Barlow, national chair of the Council of Canadians, called for opposition to gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas exports from norhern B.C. as well. Supporters of the oil sands protest include Simon Fraser University professor Mark Jaccard, former United Nations ambassador Stephen Lewis and U.S. environmentalist Bill McKibben, a leading campaigner for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

B.C. liquor policies make life harder for B.C. charities While charities across B.C. are struggling to make ends meet, the B.C. Liberals’ revised provincial liquor policies are throwing up another roadblock, say the New Democrats. “Hundreds of schools, hospitals, theatres and arts organizations across B.C. use auctions of donated wine to help raise funds,” said Spencer Chandra Herbert, New Democrat critic for arts and culture. “Now the Liberal government is telling these groups they will have to cancel these fundraisers because of a minor liquor policy change. This will have damaging consequences for charities across the province.” The Belfry Theatre in Victoria, which has successfully applied for a license for the event the past two years, was told two

weeks before their auction was scheduled to take place that they would need to cancel it due to changes aimed at bringing charities into line with other licence holders. The Belfry expected to raise $20,000 from the auction this year. “After the Liberals made the deepest cuts to arts in B.C. history, and cuts to gaming grants that impacted hundreds of other charities, the need for fundraising increased dramatically,” said Chandra Herbert. “But instead of supporting charities’ attempts to raise money, the Liberal government is now making it harder.”

Maurine Karagianis, New Democrat liquor policy critic, noted that chaos within the Liquor Distribution Branch is nothing new for the Liberals. “From the failed privatization scheme, to these changes preventing charities from raising the money they so badly need, it’s clear that the Liberals are mismanaging the LDB,” said Karagianis. Adrian Dix and B.C.’s New Democrats believe that the creative economy is vital for our future, and are committed to working with the community to ensure its success.

Attack of the U.S. celebrities There was palpable disappointment among reporters when Greenpeace organizers clarified that U.S. actors Daryl Hannah and Mark Ruffalo weren’t actually going to join the sit-in against heavy oil pipeline proposals at the B.C. legislature on Monday. I was disappointed too. I would have liked to learn more about what a washedup mermaid and an easily confused Incredible Hulk really believe about the North American oil industry. In the spirit of celebrity slacktivism, both sent statements of support. To be fair, Ruffalo may still be busy searching for the “truth” about 9/11. In 2007 he declared that the official U.S. government report on the terrorist attacks was “completely illegitimate” because “buildings don’t fall down like that.” I wonder what the relatives of those aboard the hijacked airliners think of him. Hannah has had lots of free time since starring in the 1984 mermaid fantasy Splash. Now she’s mostly famous for getting arrested, and she did so again in Texas on Oct. 3, standing in front of earthmoving equipment building the southern section of the Keystone XL pipeline. It’s worth noting that the project Hannah tried to stop has the support of the Barack Obama administration. The southern section from Cushing, Oklahoma oil storage facilities to Texas refineries is indeed being built by the sinister foreign TransCanada Corp., but it doesn’t carry the dreaded Canadian “tar sands” oil that eco-celebrities are convinced will end life on Earth as we know it. It’s the northern section that Obama has temporar-


ily opposed, after fervent demonstrations such as the one in Washington DC where Hannah’s first celebrity arrest occurred in 2011. At that time, Hannah recited the familiar talking points of the U.S. environmentalists who exclusively target Alberta. In a new book, oil sands pioneer and Suncor founder Rick George dissects Hannah’s claims, and asks why they were reported so widely and uncritically. Hannah claimed “the contribution to the carbon in the atmosphere is unprecedented.” George cites a Royal Society of Canada report that concludes the entire oil sands operation is responsible for five per cent of Canadian emissions. Fossil-fuelled electricity generation is 16 per cent of Canada’s total. Vehicles and other transportation account for 27 per cent. “How does the oil sands contribution possibly qualify as unprecedented?” George asks. Another Hannah quote: “I’ve been hearing about how many people have cancer that live downstream from the tar sands project.” Canadians heard that too, thanks in large part to an alarmist CBC documentary by David Suzuki featuring jet-set movie director

James Cameron. George describes how this allegation was made in 2006 by a doctor who claimed a cluster of rare bile cancer cases in the remote village of Fort Chipewyan, and blamed it on oil sands mining. Headlines blared around the world. George details the Alberta Health Services study

that followed, identifying three such cases in 12 years. Statistically higher, yes. A general risk, no. Other types of cancer in Fort Chip were lower than the general population. This finding was endorsed by Australian, New Zealand, U.S. and Canadian researchers. The doctor who diag-

nosed the original bile cancers admitted: “These results were based on a small number of cases – there is no cause for alarm.” Was this news trumpeted around the world? You can guess the answer. My point here isn’t to make fun of ill-informed celebrities. It’s to counteract the fawning, scientifically

coverage they are routinely given by the mainstream media. And I’m not promoting the oil sands or pipelines. I’m saying they should be considered based on facts, not foolishness. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Friday, October 26, 2012 Williams Lake Weekend


Recreation, entertainment, travel sectors grow British Columbia’s location, bordered by the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west, makes it unique within Canada. Its mountains, opportunities for boating, winter skiing, and other activities such as fishing or sightseeing in coastal or inland waters or experiencing our vibrant cities all make us a worldclass destination. Tourism helps to diversify the economy and also brings new community services to permanent residents. In the Cariboo, visitor numbers have increased, Williams Lake economic development officer Alan Madrigga said. “When we built the Tourism Discovery Centre, we noticed it stopped traffic. People come in there to educate them-

selves, say ‘heh, I didn’t know about that’, and the next thing you know we have people travelling out to the Chilcotin that have never been there.” Visitor numbers recorded at the Williams Lake Visitor Centre (TDC), gleaned from the Chamber of Commerce over the past several years – show a dramatic increase in the number of visitors compared to the past. Annual visitors recorded in the previous location were approximately 11,000. Since the opening of the TDC in the fall of 2006, the annual numbers reached a peak of 33,000 in 2007, and levelled out to a rate of 23-24,000 over the past three years. “We’ve always been able to keep a fairly flat level, which is good in the terms of

sustainability,” Madrigga said of the last few years. The provincial government’s Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will top $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. The fastest growing sectors for tourism job growth over the next decade are expected to be recreation and entertainment and travel services. In the Cariboo recreation continues to be a large draw. Madrigga pointed specifically to the growth of mountain biking opportunities and the subsequent increase in tourist numbers as an example of a local success story. “Mountain biking has been a no-brainer for us. It’s sector we

already have established and have a very positive relationship for, without really doing anything tangible,” he said. Since 2010, the city has collaborated with the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium to develop and promote mountain bike tourism. “The positive thing is that you have people on the business side of mountain biking moving it along, rather than the government or the Chamber of Commerce dictating what needs to be done. They’re doing it already,” Madrigga said. In a sense it’s “economic gardening,” he explained. “There’s something growing already, let’s water it.” After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is

poised to expand, said Arlene Keis, chief executive officer of go2, B.C.’s Tourism Marketing Strategy. Labour shortages are already being felt in places like Northern B.C., the Thompson Okanagan and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province. “The tourism industry often provides people with their important first job and sets them on their career path,” said Keis, adding tourism is also the largest employer of youth, with one in four British Columbians under the age of 24 working in the industry. “This anticipated growth in tourism reinforces the need to plan carefully and ensure that there are enough workers with

the right skills in the right communities to meet the tourism industry’s future labour needs.” Closer to home, in 2006, Census Canada

data showed there were 985 people working in tourism in Williams Lake, its fringe area and nearby First Nations communities.

Memories of Thanksgiving are flying away like the last dried leaves of fall and soon we will be knee deep in jingle bells, tree baubles and (whisper) the white stuff. I was over-the-moon grateful my kids made it home for Thanksgiving and things are looking hopeful for Christmas as well. Truth be told, sometimes I throw a pity party for myself after talking to parents who have adult children living nearby, but then it occurred to me when my kids come home, they come home. They move into their old bedrooms and for a few days and nights we’re the family we used to be. Only taller. And with a daughter-in-law. The only challenging part is the cooking. I have never been particularly gifted in the kitchen and these days making supper for the whole family reminds me of that Stone Soup story, only told in reverse. For those who haven’t heard it, the story starts with a man on the roadside with a fire, a pot, some water

Friday, October 26, 2012 Williams Lake Weekend

News Stone soup


and a stone. People passing by stop to ask what he is cooking and he cheerfully replies, “Stone soup!” The people start to add whatever ingredient they have to spare; a potato, some meat, a handful of herbs. By the time the pot comes to a boil it has morphed from stone soup into a hearty stew. Stew is good. In fact, when it comes to family fare, I am a huge fan of one pot meals. Stews, soups, salads and casseroles are where it’s at. However, our immediate family now consists of a vegetarian, two vegans and two carcass ripping carnivores with a vocal aversion to all things tofu. Mealtime can be com-

plicated. Add in the extended family and their assorted health issues, allergies and aversions and suddenly it’s not just a tussle between the vegans and the carnivores, but nuts, seeds, onions, kiwi, bananas, broccoli, kale, tomatoes and even potatoes are struck from the menu as well. When you’re not an inventive cook to begin with it can seem like the only choice for a one-pot meal is to toss a stone in a pan and tell them to come and get it. Instead our holiday meals entail creating a variety of dishes with lots of add-your-own choices to ensure no one dies or goes hungry. As I piecemeal things together I find myself stopping to think about each person individually ... and there’s nothing wrong with that. I pull the entrails from the turkey with no malice for the carnivores. I place the tofurkey in a pot and tuck a variety of vegetables around it with no irritation for the herbivores. Nuts, cheese and onions go in separate

dishes on the side. It works. And when we’re finished we will sit around the table with our drinks; drinks as diverse as our food. We have wine sippers and abstainers, java bean connoisseurs and those that prefer the dishwater blend. We will sit together elbow to elbow and sip our wine or our coffee; our almond milk or our herbal tea and we will all enjoy one thing equally... each other’s company. And that’s pretty wonderful. Not to go all melodramatic on you, but it gives me hope for world peace. You might think that’s a pretty big leap, but I don’t think so. I believe world peace starts at home. If you can’t respect the differing dietary, political or religious views of your own family what hope is there for the world? Being part of a family is like attending World Peace University. It’s not easy earning your degree. When you feel like smacking Uncle Dick upside the head for his antiquated views on women you get a D. When you


actually smack Uncle Dick upside the head, that’s an F. When you get curious why he thinks the way he does and are able to accept a viewpoint different than your own without needing to change how either of you think that earns you an A. When you can accept the possibility a person’s viewpoints on one subject doesn’t necessarily make him evil to the bone and he may even have some redeeming qualities ... A+! When it occurs to you there just might be things about yourself that are less than perfect and drive other members of your family nuts, well that’s another A+. When you decide that love doesn’t come with conditions you’ve made the honor roll. The holidays are sort of like midterms. And with only two months until Christmas it’s time to start cramming!

Tech career opportunities booming in B.C. “Every system we rely on – water, roads and transportation, telecommunications and Internet, hydro and natural gas, environment, health, forestry, and many more – utilizes engineering and applied science technology professionals working in the background, says John Leech, executive director of the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of B.C. B.C.’s telecom and IT, animation and many other sectors produce new careers every month.” ASTTBC has more than 10,000 members currently working in thousands of careers available to graduates of two-year diploma programs available at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and other B.C. colleges and institutes. Leech calls on government for renewed efforts to build student skills and confidence in

math and science programming. Lisa Kraus, career development assistant for School District in Williams Lake, says she arranges work experience programs for high school students in the city and has received great support from Interior Health, at Cariboo Memorial Hospital, and local mining companies. “We have students that can job shadow a nurse, respiratory therapy, diagnostic imaging, booking, and into the lab there. That’s just one of our sponsors. We also have strong support with Mount Polley and Gibraltar Mines,” Kraus says. Students interested in engineering have gone to job shadow engineers in the mines. Students are supported to go out into the field to try careers they are interested in, she adds. “The experience makes them more ex-

cited. I just took a student to the hospital today to meet the respiratory therapist. She’s so excited and her parents are excited about her having the opportunity,” Kraus says. Science faculty member Marten Lattinga at Thompson Rivers University Williams Lake campus teaches chemistry and physics and describes his small classes as an opportunity for students that are interested in furthering their education to succeed. They can live in their home town where the surroundings are familiar, and if they apply themselves, the small class setting gives them more one-on-one with the instructor, and a better chance of achieving good grades to enrol in programs where the jobs market is “really hot,” he says. “Some of my students go on to Kamloops to finish their

degrees, but this can be a jumping off point to anywhere.” Leech says the opportunities for those seeking work in the technology field are considerable given a wave of retirements of present-generation B.C. technology professionals that is already underway. “Half of our membership is now middleaged at 45-plus, and 22 per cent are over age 55!” he says. “Every region of B.C. shows growing demand,” Leech concludes. “New two-year

technology diploma programs are still needed in the north and central B.C. However, young people are investing to travel so they can earn the necessary tech qualifications.” It would appear their investment is a smart move, as it will result in a broad range of career opportunities. Industries in all regions of B.C. support programs for local trainees to fill engineering and applied science technologist, technician and technical specialist positions.

Cervical cancer survivor urges regular Pap testing Shawnna Taylor cringed at the thought of going for her regular Pap test, so much so that she decided to ignore cervical cancer screening for seven years. Shawnna’s choice seemed justified. She was young — in her twenties— and felt confident she was healthy enough to forego the discomfort and feelings of embarrassment that came with a Pap test. One week before her 29th birthday, though, Shawnna would find out just how misinformed her decision had been. Diagnosed with an inoperable cervical tumour the size of a small kiwifruit, Shawnna was thrust into four months of grueling chemotherapy and radiation treatments, depleting her energy levels and causing intense emotional and physical side effects. One of the most devastating emotional blows Shawnna and her husband received was the news they could never have children. “I know how easy it can be to put off getting a Pap test especially when you are young and feel indestructible,� Taylor says. “I was just like many young women before my cancer diagnosis but I now know the importance of screening. It takes five minutes and can save lives and prevents unnecessary suffering.� For this year’s Pap Awareness Week, from Oct. 23 to 29, Shawnna wants to warn young women that going for a simple Pap test can potentially save lives and prevent the suffering she was forced to endure. A Pap test collects a sample of cells from the cervix and looks for abnormalities that have a high risk of turning into cancer if left untreated. A Pap test can also identify cancer at an early stage, when there are more treatment options available and cure rates are very high.

The BC Cancer Agency recommends that women start getting Pap tests at age 21. After three annual normal Pap tests, women will be advised to have a Pap test every two years until age 69. To help spread the word, The BC Cancer Agency created a web-based community engagement campaign called the LACE Campaign, also known as “Live Aware. Create Empowerment� (LACE). LACE encourages participation in cervical cancer screening by building awareness that simple Pap tests can effectively prevent cervical cancer. Since BC introduced its Cervical Cancer Screening Program in the 1960s — the first of its kind in the world — the province has successfully decreased the rates of cervical cancer by 70 per cent. Women are encouraged to make an appointment with their family doctor for their regular Pap test or go to LACECampaign. com to obtain a list of clinics across the province that offer screening, many that don’t require appointments during the Pap Awareness Week (October 23 to 29). “While British Columbia’s cervical cancer screening par-

ticipation rate exceeds the national target of 70 per cent, there are some age groups and areas of the province where rates are significantly lower than the target,� says Dr. Dirk van Niekerk, medical leader, Cervical Cancer Screening Program, BC Cancer Agency. “It is critical that all women be aware that a Pap test is an excellent way to prevent cervical cancer, and the only way to detect abnormal cells in the cervix which, if left untreated, could develop into cancer.� The BC Cancer Agency is part of the

Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA), a specialist in prevention. PHSA is committed to sharing expertise and knowledge to promote health and prevent illness, manage chronic conditions, and lessen the burden of disease in high risk populations. PHSA encourages British Columbians to participate in screening programs for the early detection of disease to ensure the best health outcome possible.

Beyond the beetle: an action plan for healthy forests Steve Thomson Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations With the release of ‘Beyond the Beetle: A Mid-Term Timber Supply Action Plan.’ we have outlined a clear strategy to help our forests recover from the damage done by the mountain pine beetle infestation. Unfortunately the release of the action plan has led to the spread of misinformation and it’s important for your readers to know the facts. Government is not advocating logging in reserves. Reserves have been set up to manage crucial wildlife habitat, biodiversity, viewscapes and old growth forests. Those reserves are important and need to be kept. If a community believes the reserves no longer serve these purposes, they can initiate a discussion with government. Only then would government consider altering any of those designations. Along with having community support, any proposed changes must be ecologically sound and supported by science. Any such proposals will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Managing our forests is a complex issue, but the outcome we all want is simple: an industry that continues to support workers and communities. In coming up with this plan, we’re building on the $884 million we have spent since 2001 fighting the infestation and its environmental and economic impacts. We’re advocating for better use of the wood in beetle-affected areas, as opposed to increasing the number of trees cut. Not all beetle-damaged timber will supply sawmills, but it will supply the growing wood bioeconomy sector. Any areas harvested will be reforested with improved seed and start to contribute ecological values sooner than they might otherwise. The action plan includes a 10-year forest inventory plan, with the first five years focused on re-inventorying the hardest-hit mountain pine beetle areas - work which is already well

underway. Critics say this work should have started sooner, but while the pine beetle epidemic was at its peak, the ever-

changing landscape of the beetle’s destruction made it difficult to carry out a comprehensive inventory.

We are investing in innovative silviculture practices to grow more trees and grow them faster, and are working with

licensees on comprehensive plans that cover the entire timber supply areas. These plans contribute

to growing fibre but they are equally about growing healthy forests to preserve water, wildlife, visuals and other values.

These five-year plans include our latest knowledge about the effects of climate change and fire management planning.

Trail committee struck Local business leaders and community groups in 100 Mile House are teaming up to ensure that a Cariboo trail with a rich and colourful past continues to have a bright future. The coalition has set up a regional management committee for the Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail to oversee its upgrading and long-term management. The committee plans to ensure the trail continues to be an asset to the Cariboo. “The Gold Rush Snowmobile trail represents a real economic development opportunity for the Cariboo and I am pleased to see formation of a management committee to ensure the trail achieves the real benefits it can provide for the Cariboo,” said Pat Corbett, Hills Health Ranch owner and a longtime supporter of the project. The Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail between Clinton and Wells-Barkerville was formally established in late 1990’s, but

had been used for years previously by local snowmobile clubs. Sections of the trail were also used for generations by First Nations peoples for traditional practices and trade. There are also portions of the Cariboo Wagon Road along the route. The popular Cariboo route received major maintenance during the winter of 2009-10 with the removal of obstructions – mostly trees killed by the mountain pine beetle epidemic. The project was organized by the New Pathways to Gold Society (NPTGS) working in partnership with many organizations, including the District of 100 Mile House, First Nations and local contractors. Over this period, approximately $600,000 was spent on the trail with funds coming from a number of sources, including the National Trails Coalition, Western Economic Diversification Canada, Northern Development Initiative Trust and a pro-

vincial government Trails Development Grant. A key goal in forming the committee is to ensure the investments made in the trail are protected and benefits accrue to the Cariboo. NPTGS co-chair Cheryl Chapman thanked the participants for agreeing to serve on the new committee and spoke to the benefits the trail can provide to Cariboo residents. “It is critical the new committee represent the interests of all people in the Cariboo and I am confident the First Nations representatives will be major contributors to its success,” said Chapman, who is also training and product development manager for the Aboriginal Tourism Association of B.C. The regional management committee was established at a meeting held Oct. 16 at the Hills Health Ranch. The first decision of the committee was to hire consultant Steve Law of 108 Mile to provide administrative support for the new committee.

“I’ve worked closely with New Pathways to Gold and the District of 100 Mile House on the recent project and am keen to assist the newly formed committee to move quickly to implement key components of a preliminary business plan,” said Law. The NPTGS provided assistance to an ad hoc advisory committee that has met over the last year and gives financial resources to develop a business plan that will provide direction as the new regional management committee begins its work. Law says more information on the new committee and the committee members will be provided in the near future once all the details have been finalized. NPTGS is a community-based organization dedicated to economic development through investment in B.C. heritage in communities along the Gold Rush Trails and continued reconciliation with First Nations.

Prayer can do what no power on earth can do. Prayer connects us with God. God then intervenes and changes lives and situations. Someone has said, “More things are accomplished on this earth by prayer than the world dreams of.” You have most likely seen the bumper sticker that reads, Prayer Changes Things .It does. Serious research scientists today have and are conducting studies on prayer and the results are clear. Prayer by those who believe have positive benefits even for those who do not believe. This year is the fiftieth anniversary of the Cold War Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 between the US and Russia. At the time, I was too young to understand its significance but our world was on the very edge of nuclear war. Some reports say that our world was within twenty minutes of nuclear annihilation. Even hardened secular generals in both countries prayed for divine intervention because the risk was so high. In answer God moved the world from the very brink of total destruction. Looking at the many local and worldwide threats that bombard us daily including terrorism, financial instability, famine and natural disasters both local and around the world. We are forced to wonder how many times since 1962 has there been divine intervention in answer to prayer that keeps life continuing on our planet. Recently, President Obama, quoted


BY CAMERON JOHNSTON Abraham Lincoln saying, “Sometimes I fall to my knees and pray because there is no other place to go for answers.” One Christian writer talking about the privilege of prayer puts it this way, “Prayer is the opening of the heart to God as to a friend. Not that it is necessary in order to make known to God what we are, but in order to enable us to receive Him. Prayer does not bring God down to us, but brings us up to Him.” From a powerful little book called, Steps to Christ. Jesus said, “Ask and you will receive.” The truth is that God is more willing to hear and answer our prayers than we are to ask. Somehow in our troubled world

where the war rages between good and evil, prayer gives God an opportunity to act at times and in ways that would otherwise not be possible. I have only been in the Cariboo for three years but I can testify that there is significant prayer going on here. In fact, much good is happening because of the fervent prayer of God’s people in Williams Lake and beyond. Here is one example of answered prayer in Williams Lake. In 2008, the crime rate in Williams Lake peaked and was the highest in Canada. Community leaders were concerned and an RCMP officer called on the Christian community to have a day of prayer for the city. That happened and prayer groups began praying for our city and serious improvements began. David Dickson, the Safer Communities Coordinator with the Williams Lake RCMP says, “There is no doubt in my mind that the decrease in crime over the last four years is directly in response to prayer on behalf of our city.” November will be proclaimed the month of prayer for Williams Lake and I would encourage everyone to take some time and pray specifically for the physical, emotional and spiritual health of citizens in all our communities in the Cariboo. The Apostle Paul encouraged the early followers of Jesus to be continually in the attitude of prayer. This is great advice for us in the Cariboo in 2012.

New court system introduced Tom Fletcher 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 responsive-

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 more can apply for and often re-

ceive 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 governmentwide 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. “The current rules were the result of a wholesale change made over a decade ago to involve judges more actively in the pre-trial phase of proceedings to encourage early resolution and reduce the high proportion of cases that collapse on the first day of trial,” Cowper wrote. “Neither prosecutors nor defence counsel changed their practices in order to realize the potential of the new rules.”

Let’s Play Take a walk to carry out an everyday task and use this time for talking. Point out to your child what you notice on your walk. For example, “Oh, look over there, a cement mixer with the pouring chutes operating...what do you 24 think they are building?” Encourage your child to tell you about what she sees.

Try this way Choose some pages from 1001 Things to Spot in the Town and together find and count the objects in the differ-ent scenes. Follow this with a walk in your own neighbor-hood. Before starting out, and along the way, decide on some of the things that you might see and make a game out of finding them.

Play “I spy” using color, shape, letter, or number cues, e.g. “ I spy with my little eye something that is orange.”

Scientists deepen genetic understanding of MS Five scientists, including two from Simon Fraser University, have discovered that 30 per cent of our likelihood of developing Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can be explained by 475,806 genetic variants in our genome. Genome-wide Association Studies (GWAS) commonly screen these variants, looking for genetic links to diseases. Corey Watson, a recent SFU doctoral graduate in biology, his thesis supervisor SFU biologist Felix Breden and three scientists in the United Kingdom have just had their findings published online in Scientific Reports. It’s a sub-publication of the journal Nature. An inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, MS is the

most common neurological disorder among young adults. Canada has one of the highest MS rates in the world. Watson and his colleagues recently helped quantify MS genetic susceptibility by taking a closer look at GWASidentified variants in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region in 1,854 MS patients. The region has long been associated with MS susceptibility. The MS patients’ variants were compared to those of 5,164 controls, people without MS. They noted that eight percent of our 30-percent genetic susceptibility to MS is linked to small DNA variations on chromosome 6, which have also long been associated with A25

MS susceptibility. The MHC encodes proteins that facilitate communication between certain cells in the immune system. Outside of the MHC, a good majority of genetic susceptibility can’t be nailed down because current studies don’t allow for all variants in our genome to be captured. “Much of the liability is unaccounted for because current research methods don’t enable us to fully interrogate our genome in the context of risk for MS or other diseases,” says Watson. The researchers believe that one place to look for additional genetic causes of MS may be in genes that have variants that are rare in the population. “The importance of rare gene

has a great selection of

variants in MS has been illustrated in two recent studies,” notes Watson, now a postdoctoral researcher at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. “But these variants, too, are generally poorly represented by genetic markers captured in GWAS, like the one our study was based on.” Simon Fraser University is Canada’s topranked comprehensive university and one of the top 50 universities in the world under 50 years old. With campuses in Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey, B.C., SFU engages actively with the community in its research and teaching, delivers almost 150 programs to more than 30,000 students, and has more than 120,000 alumni in 130 countries.

Halloween tips for drivers

No doubt Halloween is a busy night for many Canadian families. With all the excitement of trick or treating, it is very easy for children to forget about traffic rules. Therefore it is important for all drivers and trick or treaters to be extra cautious Halloween night, says Young Drivers Canada in a press release. It is known that children under the age of nine cognitively are not able to make the best choices when it comes to road safety. Young Drivers of Canada Director of Training, Scott Marshall, advises “The easiest way to minimize risks is to choose not to drive Halloween night. If you do have to drive, reduce your speed in residen-

it is clear. This makes driving out safer and helps you see what is ahead if you do need to drive that night. Walk Wisely: Children should travel in groups with at least one adult. If they are old enough to go out without an adult, know the route your child will take. Children should walk on the sidewalk, facing on-coming traffic and cross only at intersections or crosswalks. Be Seen: Costumes should be brightly coloured. Reflective stickers on the front and back of costumes should be used for better visibility. Putting a lit flashlight in the bottom of a loot bag will also help drivers see them.

BC Lions team up to support Foster Family Month Foster families were treated to some BC Lions football action last night, thanks to a partnership between the football club and the B.C. government. Fifty foster families were in the stands at BC Place Stadium to help cheer on the Lions as they faced the Edmonton Eskimos. The foster families also got a chance to go on the field before the game to watch the Lions’ pre-game warm-up. For many of these foster children, it was their first-ever chance to watch a professional football game. Since 2006, the BC Lions, through their Courage for Kids program, have been giving complimentary tickets to foster families. October is Foster Family Month in British Columbia, a time to honour the care, compassion and commitment of the 3,200 foster families throughout the province who open their hearts to give chil-

dren safe, nurturing and supportive homes when they are unable to be with their own families. “The Lions’ generosity is a great example of how we can give back and show our gratitude to the thousands of amazing foster families in B.C.” says Stephanie Cadieux, Minister of Children and Family Development. “A lot of these kids have never had the opportunity to attend a pro football game before, so it’s pretty exciting for them and for us as well.” Jamie Taras, director of community relations, BC Lions Football Club adds: “Supporting the community we live in is an important part of what our football team stands for. So, we are delighted to host the foster families at the game, through our Courage for Kids program. Putting a smile on a young person’s face is what this is all about.” Quick Facts:

Volunteers Needed Help abandoned, neglected & abused animals! Bond Lake Road Hwy 20 A27

• Foster family homes are the primary placement resource for children in care. B.C. has approximately 8,100 children and youth in its care. Of these, about 5,300 children and youth are placed with approximately 3,200 foster families throughout the province. • Thirty-two per cent of children in care who are adopted in B.C. are adopted by their foster family. • There is always a need for more foster families of all cultural, social and ethnic backgrounds so that children in care can maintain their cultural and community connections. • Anyone, 19 years or older, who wants to share their home with a child in need can apply to become a foster parent. • Foster parents must be in good physical and mental

health. They receive training and undergo background, criminal record and reference checks. On average, the approval process takes three months. • Once the approval process is successfully completed, new foster parents sign an agreement outlining their responsibilities and complete the 53hour B.C. Foster Care Education Program within two years. • There are different types of foster homes: • Restricted foster parents care for children they know or are related to their family. • Regular foster parents provide care for up to six children of varying ages and needs. • Specialized foster parents provide care for children with more challenging behaviour or developmental needs.

Dormers and board-and-batten siding always add charm and character to a home, and this three-bedroom design is no exception. The covered entry, providing shelter from rain and snow, leads into a spacious foyer. Located as it is near the entry, this room would make the ideal home office, saving clients a trek through the rest of the house.  Lit by a skylight, the U-shaped staircase leads to both the second floor and the unfinished basement, included with the plans. Opposite the staircase are a coat cupboard and powder room.  An arched half-wall separates the foyer from the dining room, which flows seamlessly into the great room. A vaulted ceiling, fireplace and sliding doors to the terrace add drama and comfort to the great room, which is sure to be a focus for family activities in all kinds of weather.  The kitchen, set off from the great room by a work island that includes an eating bar, features plenty of counter space, as well as a pantry. The window over the kitchen sink overlooks a small covered outdoor area, perfect for the barbecue.  Also on the main floor is the master bedroom, overlooking the back garden. The generous walk-in closet is reached through a four-piece ensuite with a double basin.  The laundry room enjoys excellent access from the double garage, part of which boasts a double-height ceiling. A large coat cupboard provides extra storage

space. Upstairs, the second and third bedrooms share a threepiece bathroom.  Exterior finishes include painted trim and decorative wooden bracing in the gable over the garage door. Stone bases are topped by pilasters, and wooden shutters frame the upstairs bedroom’s mullioned window.  This house measures 40 feet wide by 59 feet, six inches deep, for a total of 2,127 square feet of living space, plus the unfinished basement.  Plans for design 6-3-359 are available for $746 (set of 5), $835 (set of 8) and $890 for a super set of 10.

Nobody starts a business from home with the intent of failing. I know that. Yet 9 out of 10 do not continue, and of those that do, very few are truly successful. Like so many, I gave up. But what would you do if you heard of a business model like this? Consider. This business has no store location, no inventory, no shipping, no office overhead, no staff, no territory, no selling, creates cash flow quickly, and with excellent return on the dollar. It also solves the Home Entrepreneur’s biggest problem. What is that? Finding customers! The company makes customers available to Independent Business owners. The company does the advertising and we share that cost - so it’s a 100% advertising expense. As long as they shop, you get a commission. And by the way, 90% of the income to the company is from customers. The company takes orders, ships to customers and delivers catalouges and magazines to our customers at no cost to us. We have access to a professional Business Services Team for any support needed. I am enjoying business success because of being able to partner with the company in the acquisition of customers and with others of like mind, and similar bigger-than-average goals. Now you know what I did. What will you do? Call me.
