Northern B.C. mines not set in stone

Mandarin not required for potential mines, MLA says. But skills to work in underground coal mines are increasingly rare in Canada ANNALEE GR ANT Townsman Staff

Temporary foreign workers are necessary to ensure investment in B.C.’s mining industry, says MLA Bill Bennett.

Cougar spotted in Marysville neighbourhood C AROLYN GR ANT bulletin@cyberlink.ca

A cougar was sighted in Marysville on Sunday evening, and it wasn’t even trying to keep to the shadows and not be seen, says resident Ellie Brouer. Brouer lives on 310th Street in Marysville and her house is surrounded by others. She says she is about four houses down from the Rails to Trails. She says Sunday evening, her 19-year old son was home and watched a cougar try to run into their backyard. “The cougar was chasing prey and ran into the mesh fence around the yard,” she said. “I don’t think he saw it. My son watched it. It looked like it got caught up in the mesh for a bit

and then got out. He took his prey across the street and finished it off.” Brouer says her son thought the prey was a young black dog. She says her son thought of following in his car to keep an eye on the cougar, but lost sight of it. “I called the CO,” Brouer said. “He took a report but that’s all. But my thought was, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s only three days to Halloween, there will be kids everywhere.’” Meanwhile Marilyn Bancks, principal of Marysville Elementary, says there was a report last week of a cougar on Main Street and a message was sent home to parents. She said the school would notify parents again to be cautious.

samples at proposed coal mines in northern B.C. that will utilize longwall mining techniques. Once the sampling has been done and should the mine go ahead, Bennett said the provincial government will look at ensuring Canadian miners can fill

the jobs longterm. “There will be no opportunity, no need to train anyone, unless this bulk sample is taken and a decision made to build the mine — and that can’t happen without these temporary foreign workers,” Bennett said.

The jobs were posted by HD Mining, Canadian Kailuan Dehua Mines, and Canadian Dehua International Mines Group. The United Steelworkers have slammed the provincial government for not ensuring B.C. residents were eligible for the job.

They point to a job application dated October 12 that required workers speak Mandarin. “Never in the history of Canadian mining have we ever seen a requirement to speak Mandarin mentioned in

a posting for a job in a Canadian mine,” said Steve Hunt, the Steelworkers’ Western Canadian director. “A requirement like that automatically eliminates the vast majority of Canadian job applicants

Councillors get first-hand fire experience Submit ted

Experiencing what it takes to be a firefighter with the Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services, is something not everyone has the chance to do. Mayor Wayne Stetski, members of council and CAO Wayne Staudt had the opportunity to experience it firsthand during a special Fire Operations 101 program, hosted by Fire and Emergency Services, at the fire hall on Tuesday October 9, 2012. Mayor, council and staff had the opportunity to experience a mock confined space rescue, manoeuver themselves and required gear through various obstructions, enter a dark, smoke filled room and finally assess and extinguish a fire. The intent of the event was to help pro-

Act now on climate change, experts urge Sandford, Harford provide advice to East Kootenay residents on how to prepare for changes to our water resources Sa lly MacDonal d Townsman Staff

Two climate change experts were in Cranbrook last week to urge Columbia Basin residents to get informed about the predicted changes to our water resources. Bob Sandford, the EPCOR Chair of the Canadian Partnership Initiative in support of United Nations “Water for Life” Decade, and Deborah Harford, executive director of Simon Fraser University’s Adaption to Climate Change Team, visited Cranbrook and Kimberley on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to give public lectures at McKim Middle School and the College of the Rockies, also meeting with students in both cities. The series was sponsored by Citizens for a Livable Cranbrook, Wildsight and the College of the Rockies. The pair spoke about how predicted climate change will affect our water resources, and what we in the East Kootenay can do to prepare. “My message for the Kootenays is that what is happening in the rest of Canada and around the world suggests you are in a very positive position with respect to the benefits that will accrue here as a result of managing water more effectively,” Sandford told the Townsman.

Deborah Harford “By decreasing water usage, by being very careful in understanding natural processes and ecosystem needs for water, by understanding the larger dynamics of the Columbia River Treaty, you can position yourself as a region to have a very positive future.” Harford explained the impacts climate change will have here in the East Kootenay. “You will get warmer, wetter winters with more rain falling as snow on lower elevations, and more heavy precipitation events

that are unpredictable. So you’ve got more chance of flooding. There will be longer, hotter, drier summers, without the benefit of the snowpack and ice that used to be there at lower elevations running off, so you are more likely to get drought at the end of the summer,” she told the Townsman. “All of those things have implications for everything from civic infrastructure, to farmers and their water allocations, to how we deal with the Columbia River Treaty.” Sandford agreed that reconsidering the Columbia River Treaty is a pivotal opportunity for our region. It gives us the chance to make policy based on the current understanding of ecosystems, an energized hydrological cycle, equity with First Nations, and the fact that climate change could affect surrounding regions differently to how it affects us. “The reconsideration of the Columbia River Treaty is an opportunity to address all of those things simultaneously so that you might be able to use crafting of new conditions of the treaty as an adaptation strategy for the entire region,” said Sandford. B.C.’s water act has elements that are more than 100 years old, Harford went on. “It predates climate change, it

Bob Sandford predates pretty much everything that has ever happened in B.C. We really need to encourage our leaders to keep that on the table,” she said, adding that it doesn’t contain groundwater protection policies. “I encourage people to write to their mayors and councillors, to their MLAs and MPs, and to think about this in the provincial election next year,” said Harford. “Find out all about it and then write to the current premier and the opposition and tell them, I want to see this on the table be-

cause we need to protect our water in B.C.” The Columbia Basin is uniquely positioned to make a difference to the province, Sandford pointed out. “Water act modernization, nesting that in the Columbia River Treaty, and responding to these larger issues is an economic and a social opportunity for the people who live in the Basin and ought to be considered as such,” he said. “In this town, your mayor is a central player in some of those considerations. You have people in your municipal government who have influence on these matters. They would appreciate the best advice they can get and the best understanding of what their constituents want.” Harford echoed the importance of speaking up. “We really need to let our leaders know that we care about it. Anybody in this region who does care about our water systems would be helping by bringing that up,” she said. “Let local leaders know you want to see these issues considered in policy, and that you are prepared to help and support.” You can learn more about B.C.’s water act at www.livingwatersmart.ca.

Crews from Hebditch Holdings drive down sheet steel piling to create a new weir at Elizabeth Lake on behalf of Ducks Unlimited, Friday, Oct. 26.

Ducks Unlimited replaces weir at Elizabeth Lake S ally MacDonal d Townsman Staff

Ducks Unlimited have been busy at Elizabeth Lake building a new weir. The existing concrete water control structure is now 40 years old, but it made all the difference for Elizabeth Lake. “We put in the structure in 1971. By 1980, this was one of the most significant bench land wet-

lands in the Rocky Mountain Trench,” said Ken Johnson, the head of habitat asset management for Ducks Unlimited Canada, who managed the construction. The new weir is made with sheet steel piling. The structure will allow Ducks Unlimited to continue regulating the water level of Elizabeth Lake to create

optimal conditions for bird nesting, especially for waterfowls. The steel water control structure is now complete. The project cost around $70,000, with $10,000 coming from Columbia Basin Trust. There is a trail bridge over the old concrete weir, which the City of Cranbrook will continue to maintain.

But Bennett said that simply isn’t the case. “The company is not requiring Mandarin as a condition of employment,” he said. The Health, Safety and Reclamation Code of B.C. which governs the province’s mine industry, says that all fire bosses and shift bosses are required to be conversant with the English language to be issued a competency certificate to work in a B.C. mine. The code also says no person will be issued a valid blasting certificate without being able to give and receive orders in English. The B.C. Ministry of Mines confirmed that is the case with all proposed mines in B.C., and there will be no exemptions for these operations. “The province under the Health, Safety and Reclamation Code for Mines in B.C. requires underground coal mine managers and foremen (fire bosses) to be fluent in the English language and pass an examination in English,” said a ministry spokesperson. “Longwall mining is an underground coal mining method. Fire bosses will not be exempt from the English language requirements.” There are now only two underground coal mines left in the country — one on Vancouver Island and the other in Alberta. “Canada has no surplus underground coal mine workers because the industry has almost died out,” Bennett said. “The skills required for underground coal mine workers are extremely different from open pit coal mine jobs and even quite distinct from underground metal mines. It takes a minimum of two years training and many more years than that for the more specialized jobs.” NDP candidate for Kootenay East Norma Blissett said the lack of workers qualified for underground coal mines stems from the B.C. Liberal government’s lack of investment in training skilled workers. “Under the Liberals we’ve had a decade where we’ve failed to

educate skilled workers,” she said. “We’re mining other countries of their skilled workers. We want those high paying jobs for our people.” Blissett said northern B.C. is experiencing a 10 per cent unemployment rate. “We have people who need jobs — but they need training,” she said. Mining coal underground can be a dangerous occupation because of the explosiveness of coal dust and build-ups of methane gas.

“It makes no sense to invest tax dollars in training underground coal mine workers before we know we have an underground coal mine.” Bill Bennett “Only experienced underground coal mine workers can do this dangerous work and Canada has none,” Bennett said. The World Coal Association has said that fatalities in underground coal mine operations in China are “unacceptably high, particularly due to the number of unregulated small coal mines that have operated in recent years.” As of August 31, there have been 62 fatalities in Chinese coal mines. Bennett said he has seen first hand the commitment to safety in Chinese mines. “China has lots of small family-operated coal mines that are dangerous,” Bennett admitted. “They also have some of the safest mines in the world. I toured one in 2006.” Blissett said if the mine goes forward, mine inspectors must be able to communicate with the work force to properly do their jobs. “We need to ensure that those safety concerns are met before this goes ahead,” she said. With the industry shifting due to higher prices of metallurgical coal, more companies are beginning to explore

underground mining in Canada, Bennett said. “The considerable extra cost of building and operating underground coal mines versus surface mines is now worth it and many mining exploration companies have been drilling and exploring for underground opportunities,” he said. The temporary foreign workers will be sinking a shaft down to collect a bulk sample, which will determine the viability of a new mine. “The temporary foreign workers will take four to six months to extract the bulk sample,” Bennett said. “Then the company will assess the quality of the coal and will make a decision as to whether to invest the hundreds of millions required to build an underground coal mine.” Bennett said that if the mine goes ahead, Canadians will be trained for the jobs. “If B.C. does get an underground coal mine – and that is still very much unknown – we will be training Canadian workers to take the jobs. It makes no sense to invest tax dollars in training underground coal mine workers before we know we have an underground coal mine.” Bennett said temporary foreign workers are important to Canada’s economy. “There are tens of thousands of temporary foreign workers working in Canada today,” he said. “Our ski hills couldn’t survive without them – neither could parts of the agriculture industry.” In the case of the northern B.C. mines, Bennett said the workers will only be in the country for four to six months, not 10 years as has been predicted by the NDP opposition. Blissett said she questions how long the workers will actually be in the province. “There’s been estimates that these people could be here three to four years,” she said. The first wave of temporary foreign workers was set to arrive by the end of the month, part of 200 that will work in northern B.C. altogether.

A Contemporary poet Sharlande Sledge saint is someone loved by God. For me, writes, “‘Thin places,’ the Celts call this that includes everyone.

But there’s something more. All Saints Day reminds me again that the church remembers people differently than the world remembers. Secular history is usually the story of conquerors. The world measures their greatness in terms of power. How many wars have they won? How many peoples have they subdued? Will Cuppy says that Alexander III of Macedonia “is known as Alexander the Great because he killed more people of more different kinds than any other man of his time.” But the church remembers people differently. We honour those who sought to make the world a better place, who suffered unjustly, who alleviated or prevented the suffering of others. We remember people like St. Hugh of Lincoln. In the 12th century, King Henry II of England elevated Hugh to be prior of a new monastery the king had built. Hugh refused to accept the office until the king housed and compensated every peasant who had been evicted in order to build the new monastery. Imagine what might happen if we held our government accountable in the same way when the homeless are evicted for public spectacles like the 2010 Olympic Games. In that way, All Saints’ Day renews in me the priorities of the gospel. I invite you to reflect on the thin places in your own life. Where are the thin places, where your spirit is refreshed and where the door to the threshold of the sacred is opened? Yme Woensdregt is Pastor at Christ Church Anglican in Cranbrook

Opinion/Events

Wow — what a shock when I unfolded the paper and saw the front page on Oct 15, 2012. To think that someone in our culture would really eat people. At the bottom of the photo it reads: “WARNING – GRAPHIC CONTENT”. Unbelievable to see this in our local paper. The picture of the ‘zombie’ eating a brain brought back unsettling memories of the incident on a Greyhound bus where a man cut off another person’s head. To think of a scenario like that is bad enough, but to put a graphic picture such as this in the paper – it’s unnecessary. What are we coming to as a society? Then I read on and see it was in fact people in Cranbrook thinking this is a way of entertainment. Do we not have enough awful things happening to people in our town to have to put on such a gory spectacle? I read the Zombie Walk was put on as a fundraiser for the Food Bank. Does the group that sees the families with the most needs — people who have suffered from physical, sexual and mental abuse and mental illness — condone this kind of thing? What kind of a message is it sending to the people they serve? Horror is now OK — we know you live with it, but we can get entertainment from it and make it even more graphic? I am beyond words to explain how I feel. My first reaction was to throw up, my second was to never buy the Townsman again, and my third was to never support the Food Bank again. My next thought was: So do the people that get dressed up go to someone in

Cranbrook that has been beaten up, or someone who has seen their parents or someone else be beaten up and ask if the costume looks real enough? Or do you watch people who are on drugs, because of the hurts in their life, to see how they walk as the living dead? I guess none of my first reactions would be of much use: 1) If I throw up — I would have a mess to clean up 2) If I stopped taking the Townsman — I would just miss out on the good things it has in it, such as who won scholarships, who raised money for a good cause, etc. 3) If I stopped supporting the Food Bank — It would only hurt the people who are served by the Food Bank, not the culture that drew people to the Zombie Walk in the first place. Thank you for letting me tell you how I feel. Just knowing that this is creeping into our culture as a new form of entertainment is very upsetting to me. Not sure what good this letter will do, except maybe make a few people stop and think about what they are getting involved in and who they are following. Georgina Paul Cranbrook

With everyone’s help I have always been impressed by the help I have received from strangers over my decades of living in the East Kootenay. On Monday, Oct. 22, My husband and I were at a local coffee shop when he slumped in his chair and appeared to be in distress. People were quick to clear the

area of tables and chairs. Staff offered assistance and the use of their coats to put on the floor to lay my husband on. Then four men swung into action. One used his cellphone to phone 911 for emergency response and directions until Emergency Personnel arrived. The others lay their coats on the floor, moved my husband to the floor and followed 911 directions. One of the men started CPR. My thanks to the staff and other customers that comforted me. And then,the staff and owners at the coffee shop sent flowers that were on the altar at the funeral. Our thanks to First Responders, Ambulance Personnel, and Emergency Staff at EKRegional Hospital who provided great service.We, the family have so much gratitude for all of your help.

Booknotes Just a short note to say how much I enjoy “Mike’s Booknotes,” by Cranbrook Public Library reference librarian Mike Selby, which is a regular feature in the Daily Townsman. In these days when so many are turning to digital information on the Internet, or God forbid, Twitter and Facebook, Mike’s informative and incisive columns demonstrates there’s still a place for good old print on paper. It also shows the strength of our local library and its high quality staff that helps the public to better appreciate the facility. Gerry Warner Cranbrook

Little new in B.C. Liberal renewal

B.C.

Liberal delegates gathered for their convention on the weekend at the Chateau Whistler, the same luxury hotel where Gordon Campbell fired up the troops in 2008. Back then the advertising slogan was “Keep BC Strong.” Unveiled at Premier Christy Clark’s pre-election pep rally: “Together. Building BC.” This slight change hints at the big difference. Campbell led a front-running party to a third straight majority, while Clark is a struggling underdog pleading for unity to turn back an NDP tsunami. Hence “Free Enterprise Friday,” a discussion open to non-party members. Clark began with an upbeat speech urging party members to “reach out our arms, open the tent and be as big as we can possibly be.” So did they? Dashing between three concurrent sessions, I missed a fair amount of it, but there were some provocative suggestions to appeal to those inclined to support the resurgent B.C. Conservatives. An accountant spoke to a packed room about the growing unfunded liability of public sector pensions, most of which are still of the “defined benefit” variety. Based on bond interest rates that have since sunk to all-time lows, these governmentguaranteed pensions are now a free ride

for those lucky enough to have them, funded by the taxes of private sector workers who in many cases have no pension plan at all. There was talk of passing a law that all new public sector hires be restricted to a “defined contribution” plan where the employee and employer contribute equally and the pension is based on what those contributions yield. This would provoke the mother of all confrontations with the B.C. Federation of Labour, but there was no evidence yet that this is going BC Views beyond the talking stage. The resolutions continTom ued the theme of confrontFletcher ing the labour movement, ritual combat that seems to be an inescapable part of B.C. elections. Delegates passed two motions, one calling for public sector unions to disclose what they spend on salaries, political activities and lobbying, and another advocating a ban on unions spending compulsory dues on political campaigns. This is a pet project of Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad, whose constituency sponsored both motions. Rustad presented a private member’s bill last year to require detailed disclosure, but it was left to die on the order paper. Like all the policy resolutions debated at the convention, these ideas are not binding on the government. Again, there is no actual change on the horizon.

Letters to the Editor Cranbrook Zombies

tuesday, october 30, 2012

Delegates rejected another motion that would have made membership in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation optional. This would have been a declaration of war on B.C.’s most militant union, just as Clark and Education Minister Don McRae embark on a long-shot bid to end the decades of confrontation that have defined that relationship since teachers were relegated to the industrial union model of labour relations. There was a brief debate on a motion to scrap the carbon tax, sponsored by northern members who see it as unfairly punitive on those who endure cold weather and long highway drives for themselves and the goods they need to have trucked in. This was rejected too, after delegates were reminded that the tax now takes in more than $1 billion annually that is used to reduce business and personal income taxes. Scrapping it would amount to announcing across-the-board income tax hikes, contradicting 12 years of B.C. Liberal policy just before an election. The good news for Clark is that the 2012 convention was a high-energy, wellattended event that contradicts the notion of a party in disarray. The bad news is, nothing has really changed.

V SAIT wins soccer provincials with local talent 250.426.5201

SUBMITTED

RED DEER — A mere glance at the history books says everything about the promise and the heartbreak that has surrounded the SAIT Trojans men’s soccer team over the past three decades. On Sunday afternoon, on the frozen, windswept tundra of the Red Deer College pitch, the Trojans at long last struck gold. “This gold medal,” reflected veteran SAIT head coach Grant Stevens, who’d been moved to tears only moments earlier, “is for all those who have come close. “And we’ve been very, very close in the past.” Sunday afternoon, the Trojans finally made it to the promised land — crowned ACAC men’s soccer champions after a 2-1, extra-time win over Edmonton’s NAIT Ooks, the two-time defending ACAC champions and the province’s perennial odds-on favourites. One way or another, the Men of Troy had already qualified for the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) national championship tournament, being held Nov. 7 to 10 at Douglas College in New Westminster, B.C., by virtue of Saturday’s 3-0 ACAC semifinal win over the Lakeland College Rustlers of Lloydminster. Thanks to Sunday’s result, they’ll head to B.C.’s Lower Mainland in two weeks’ time with another feather in their cap. Midfielder Mike Hamm (2nd year, Cranbrook, B.C., business administration) scored the winning goal by splitting the NAIT defence and tapping the ball into the corner of the NAIT net with about 10 minutes to go during Sunday’s second of two 15-minute extra sessions. SAIT captain and sophomore midfielder Jaron Broom (2nd year, Calgary, business administration) — who would later be named MVP of this ACAC provincial championship tournament — had staked the Trojans to a 1-0 lead in the 80th minute, only to see the Ooks equalize on a goal by

250.427.5333

Dexter MacLachlan no more than two minutes later. “We have one of the best teams I’ve ever played for this year. At every single position, we had the strongest player out there. And every player out there today played their hearts out,” said Broom, a two-time ACAC all-star. “We went 8-1-1 this season (to win the ACAC’s South Division), and we just came together today. Everything was firing on all pistons. I’m so happy right now, it’s ridiculous.” Broom found room between two NAIT centre-backs and put a light touch on the ball following a cross from Gbenga Ajibulu (2nd year, Kogi, Nigeria, bachelor of applied technology petroleum), giving SAIT the game’s first goal after a very tense 80 minutes. But after MacLachlan had pulled the Ooks even just minutes later, the Trojans held their ground, said Broom. “Not one boy put his head down. Everybody just kept plugging away, and plugging away,” said Broom. “Not one person gave up.” And after Hamm capitalized on that lead pass in overtime from Adilson Moises-Cuteta (4th year, Edmonton, aircraft maintenance engineer), there were still about 10 minutes until the three peeps of the referee’s whistle. Earlier this week, Broom, striker Amadou Diallo (5th year, Montreal, bachelor of applied technology petroleum engineering), and midfielder Jacob Walmsley (1st year, Cranbrook, B.C., journalism arts) had been named ACAC all-stars for the 2012 season. Sunday afternoon, defender Jeff Hamm (2nd year, Cranbrook, B.C., business administration), centre-back Miguel Castro (2nd year, Manaure, Colombia, petroleum engineering technology), and striker Peter Pestka (5th year, Calgary, bachelor of applied technology geographic information systems) were named tournament all-stars.

Triton Swim Club to host Olympians TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Heads up, Cranbrook—two Olympians are coming to town. Scott Dickens and Brent Hayden have accepted invitations from the Triton Swim Club and will come up to the Key City this weekend to do some sessions in the water with the club at the Aquatic Centre inside Western Financial Place. Dickens competed in the 2004 and 2012

Summer Olympics and won two gold medals at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Hayden captured a bronze medal in London at the 2012 Summer Olympics and is a Canadian record-holder in the 50, 100 and 200-metre freestyle. Hayden is also a former world champion in the 100-metre freestyle. Dave Chisholm, who coaches with the Triton Swim Club, said getting

the two Olympians to come out to Cranbrook was as simple as sending an invite. “We just asked them, they said they’d come,” said Chisholm. “We’ve been working on getting someone here for a year now but because of the Olympics and everything, no one was available. “We tried to get somebody but then we got both, so we said, ‘OK, let’s have both’.” The two mentors will

take to the water in two separate sessions on Saturday and Sunday, with roughly 30 athletes attending each one. “We wanted to do something for our swimmers and the swimmers in the region, get them motivated a bit,” said Chisholm. The sessions are closed, but the Tritons opened up spots to other clubs in the region after filling all the available space with their own athletes.

“We’ve got some coming from Fernie, Columbia Valley, Invermere, Radium and possibly some from Nelson,” said Chisholm. “It all came together really quick, because we found out just under a month ago.” Needless to say, his athletes are pretty stoked on getting the chance to get some tips straight from their Olympic heroes. “They’re excited, and so are the parents,” Chisholm continued. “Scott Dickens is a breaststroke specialist and Brent Hayden is a freestyle specialist, so I’m hoping they’ll work on those two strokes and give them some hints. “Also, what it takes to an Olympian, and to be a swimmer at that level.” The Triton Swim Club also returned from a successful meet in Canmore this past weekend, where ten local swimmers put in some excellent times. The local athletes went up against roughly 100 other competitors for the Subway Rockies Invitational meet, as swimmers from 6 to 17 years of age took to the water.

Women’s Avs tune up with international match Trevor Crawley Sports Editor

The women’s Avalanche team got a taste of international play on Monday, hosting a college team from Colorado as it made a quick side trip to the College of the Rockies during a tour of the Northwest U.S. The Lady Spartans of the Colorado Northwest Community College rolled through Monday evening— which is a practice night for the Avalanche anyway—and the two teams went at it on the court. The outcome didn’t affect the Av’s position in the Pacwest standings, which meant it was a good opportunity for the ladies to get more game time experience, said head coach Agata Bendkowska. “This is totally different,” said Bendkowska.

“Today, I played a lot of players who usually sit on the bench, who don’t get a chance to play as often as they want to. Today they had a chance to prove themselves for the future, so the game was for that reason.” The two teams didn’t play a match proper, rather they played setby-set, with both sides winning two each. Both the men and women’s Avalanche teams had a bye in the Pacwest league this past weekend after winning two games in their opening road trip two weeks ago, but Bendkowska said her girls are itching to get back into league matches. “The girls are hungry,” Bendkowska said. “We won those two games—almost three— so now they know how it feels to win and they want more.”

Nash dreams of winning NBA title with Lakers Monte Stewart Canadian Press

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Steve Nash is about to begin a new — and final — era. When Nash suits up in a Los Angeles Lakers uniform for their regular-season opener Tuesday night against the Dallas Mavericks, the 38-year-old will embark on his last quest for an NBA championship that has eluded him for 16 seasons. “That’s a big reason why I’m still playing,’’ he said after practice Monday at the Lakers’ practice facility. “It’s because I enjoy the challenge. I haven’t won a championship, and I’d love to know what that feels

like. “Obviously, I can’t say (what a championship would mean) until it happens, but it would be a great cap to my career — for sure.’’ Barring an unforeseen turn of events, the legendary Lakers will “most likely’’ be his last team in a storied career that has included two NBA most valuable player awards, back-toback in 2004-05 and 2005-06 with the Phoenix Suns. “I’ll be 41 at the end of this deal,’’ he said. “We’ll see how my body feels and my mind is, and if I’m still effective and enjoying (playing).’’ The Victoria native inked a three-year con-

tract with the Lakers following a sign-andtrade deal in the offseason that saw him leave Phoenix after a second stint that lasted eight seasons. Nash helped both Dallas (2000-01) and Phoenix (2004-05) reach the Western Conference finals, but the Suns have had limited success in recent seasons while going through coaching and management changes and rebuilding efforts. Now, the veteran point guard is being asked to help provide some of the passing and shooting wizardry that have helped him rank among the all-time greats of the game after

Nash’s championship quest will be aided by a star-laden Lakers squad that includes Kobe Bryant, who is nursing an injury and may not play Tuesday, newcomer Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace. While dishing the ball to them, and not playing favourites, Nash will also attempt to introduce a sense of unselfishness to a squad not necessarily known for it. He will also try to provide cohesion among the brash per-

sonalities. “Guys have been great _ so far,’’ said Nash with a smile. “I’ve enjoyed it. We have a great group of guys — guys that are hungry — and, obviously, guys just have to be honest and have the best interests at heart.’’ While Bryant is perceived as the face of the franchise and the key to its attack, Lakers coach Mike Brown said Nash will drive the offence. “He’s extremely intelligent and helps out a lot,’’ said Brown. “But, I think, at the end of the day, he understands that he has the keys to the engine, and we’re going to go as he wants us to go.’’

SAN FRANCISCO — For the second time in three years, San Francisco is gearing up for a ticker-tape parade to celebrate a World Series victory for the Giants. Plans for the Wednesday bash were being made as the city cleaned up after a rowdy celebration Sunday night turned violent in some neighbourhoods and police arrested three dozen people. “I’m not going to let the spirit of this city be destroyed by 36 people,’’ Mayor Ed Lee said. “We’re going to move forward with a great parade, a wonderful celebration.’’ The parade will take a slightly different route from the one that followed the Giants’ 2010 championship. Instead of the financial district, it will start at the foot of Market Street. The new route is safer and affords better views than the previous route, which followed a path taken in 1958 to introduce the Giants to San Francisco after their move from New York, Mayor’s Office spokesman Francis Tsang said. “A lot has changed since then,’’ he added. Regardless of the route, hundreds of thousands of fans are expected to turn out and rival the crowd that celebrated in 2010, when players, coaches and other luminaries rode in open-air buses designed to look like cable cars and vintage convertible cars. Tens of thousands of people crowded into a

park across the street from City Hall at the end of that parade to hear players, coaches and executives thank fans for their support. This year, the parade occurs on Halloween, a historically notorious night for San Francisco, with landmarks such as Coit Tower and City Hall bathed in orange and black light. In previous years, hundreds of thousands of revelers descended on the Castro neighbourhood, and authorities struggled to control the crowds. After a shooting in 2006 wounded nine people, officials cancelled the party and the night is now marked by a heavy police presence. As some city workers were busy Monday erecting VIP stands in front of City Hall, others were sweeping up broken glass and charred debris left behind in the Mission District and other neighbourhoods where the revelry turned violent after midnight. The Police Department arrested 36 people, the majority in the Mission. Two were taken into custody on gun charges. However, Sgt. Michael Andraychak said the vast majority of celebrations throughout the city, from the gay mecca of the Castro to touristy North Beach, were rowdy but peaceful. Fans doused each other with beer and champagne and danced in the streets, blocking motorists who happily honked their horns in celebration while stuck in gridlock.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I was with my ex-husband for 18 years before I divorced him. We have three children, and he hasn’t been the best father or husband. Lately, however, he has been nice and comes around to visit the kids. I appreciate the fact that he is doing this, but he is now saying things to me that make me uncomfortable. He slept on my couch a couple of nights because he stayed late with the kids when I was out. But now he is coming every day and staying over every night. We often end up sleeping together. I told him to stop coming around with the expectation that we are getting back together, because we are not. But he refuses to listen, and now he has asked me to marry him again. He won’t take “no” for an answer. What should I do? -- Think I’ve Been Too Nice Dear Think: For starters, stop sleeping with him. By allowing him to spend the night in your bed, you are leading him on, encouraging him to believe there is hope. If you are serious about keeping him as an exhusband, you must put an end to the couch sleepovers. When you return home, insist that he leave the premises. If you don’t have the backbone for that, drop the kids at his place instead of letting him come to yours. Or hire a babysitter. You are creating this problem. You can stop it. Dear Annie: How do you handle someone who constantly interrupts? She always knows more about the story and makes me feel inadequate. She’s loud, abrasive and obnoxious. We had a good group of friends, and this person ingratiated herself into our clique. Only one of the other women likes her, but it’s enough to keep her around. I’d love to put her in her place, but don’t want to cause a rift with my friends. -- Annoyed Dear Annoyed: Does she do this with everyone, or only you? If it’s just you, it could be that you take a long time to get to the point, or you monopolize conversations more than you realize. However, if she does it to everyone, you can say, “I’m sure you have something to add, but I’d appreciate it if you would let me finish first.” Many people who interrupt do not realize they are doing it and need to be reminded, nicely, when they overstep. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Bring Back Wedding Etiquette,” who thought it was tacky that the bridal couple requested that guests contribute to their honeymoon. My son and his fiance also set up a website for guests to contribute to certain categories of their honeymoon expenses. They did this because they reside in a foreign country, but the wedding ceremony is in the U.S. They cannot carry gifts back with them, nor do they have a place here to store them. They are making the suggestion that if people want to give them a wedding gift, they can donate online. It may seem tacky to some, but they came up with the fund in order to be helpful. It is in no way meant to coerce anyone into paying for their honeymoon. People should consider the circumstances of the couple involved before they criticize. -- Proud Mom of a Considerate Couple Dear Proud: Couples who live overseas, particularly those stationed in the military, are given dispensation to request monetary gifts because otherwise it becomes complicated, if not downright impossible, to give presents. However, honeymoon websites are deliberately specific categories, and when those are the only options available, it seems like pressure even if that is not the intent.

Still nasty Sandy morphs from hurricane to hybrid Seth Borenstein Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The storm called Sandy messily morphed from hurricane into hybrid storm, losing the hurricane part of its name, but not the weather mayhem surrounding it. The National Hurricane Center officially pronounced the storm “post-tropical’’ Monday evening, as the centre of Sandy perched 20 miles south of Atlantic City, knocking at the coast’s door. The change is part of a transition into a more diffuse storm that is bigger and sloppier, even as its force weakened. Sandy continues to merge with what was once two cold weather systems already dumping snow in West Virginia, forming what the hurricane centre calls post-tropical and others call Frankenstorm or Perfect Storm 2. Whatever name it visits as, it isn’t leaving the Eastern U.S. anytime soon. The storm lost its status as hurricane because it no longer has a warm core centre nor the convection — the upwards air movement in the eye — that traditional hurricanes have, but it is still as dangerous as it was when it was considered a hurricane, according to National Hurricane Center spokesman Dennis Feltgen. It tipped into the posttropical category because it has become “devoid of thunderstorms

Ken Blevins, The Associated Press, The Star-News, The Associated Press

Waves pound Carolina Beach, N.C., Saturday, as hurricane Sandy churns up the Atlantic Ocean. near the centre,’’ said Ed Rappaport, deputy director of the NHC. That should mean a storm that is larger in physical dimensions affecting more people, but with weaker peak winds, meteorologists say. Sandy already had been among the largest-sized hurricanes with tropical force winds that once extended across 1,000 miles over open ocean. Meteorologist Jeff Masters of

Weather Underground said that as a hybrid, Sandy’s wind damage will be even wider. High wind warnings extend from the Canadian border to central Florida and from Chicago to Maine, he said. But those winds will be less intense than those around the eye of a hurricane. That the storm grew so large Friday, Saturday and Sunday was a sign it was already in the process of

B.C. post secondaries hit by picket lines C anadian Press

VANCOUVER – Teaching assistants at the University of B.C. and support staff at other post-secondary schools around the province are stepping up job action while employees at some institutions have yet to ratify agreements. Negotiations involve about 15,000 members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees at various colleges and universities. About 2,300 UBC teaching assistants, tutors, markers and English language instructors of CUPE Local 2278 planned to picket a building at the Vancouver campus at 3 p.m. on Monday, when their strike notice was to take effect. They’re pushing for demands in a new contract to replace a deal that expired in 2010. Two other CUPE locals at UBC have reached tentative agreements involving

``I think, honestly, morale is down on every single campus. But way more important is (the morale) for the student body. If I’m entering into a four-year program I want to know that I’m going to have no disruption.’’ Ian Mclean labourers, trades, clerical and administrative workers, said Tracey Mathieson, CUPE BC universities sector coordinator. She said about 12,000 support staff are involved in negotiations at six universities, including the University of B.C., Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria. Along with the two UBC locals, tentative agreements have been reached at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and the University of Northern in Prince George, but the new deals have not yet been ratified. Ian McLean, co-ordinator of the colleges

sector for CUPE’s B.C. chapter, said support staff from eight colleges are also currently negotiating agreements with the Post Secondary Employers Association. They include Vancouver Community College employees who were expected to refuse overtime Monday and walk out Tuesday at two campuses. The union said it’s planning rotating, escalating job action to push for productive negotiations after that. The 420 members of Local 4627 represent library technicians, clerical and cafeteria workers, along with administrative and technical staff.

The other institutions are North Island College, College of the Rockies, College of New Caledonia, Camosun College, Langara College and Emily Carr University and Vancouver Island University, which were formerly colleges. McLean said a total of about 3,000 CUPE members are represented at the eight institutions. Settlement proposals have been made to employers at College of the Rockies, which has six campuses, Vancouver Community College, which has two campuses, and the three-campus Vancouver Island University. ``I think, honestly, morale is down on every single campus,’’ McLean said. ``But way more important is (the morale) for the student body. If I’m entering into a four-year program I want to know that I’m going to have no disruption.’’

merging with the western cold front, experts said. Its massive girth will extend as far as Chicago The transition from tropical to wintery won’t affect the massive and life-threatening storm surge expected along the eastern coast, Masters said. But Sandy hasn’t been easy to label, said Chris Landsea, the hur-

ricane centre’s science officer. Meteorologists had expected Sandy to lose its tropical characteristics before Monday afternoon, but it approached the shoreline with the name hurricane attached even if some parts of didn’t act that way. Sandy’s wind and rain fields aren’t showing classic hurricane symmetry and instead are lopsided. As an example of how this storm has stymied even the experts, the National Hurricane Center for the first time ever included a whole section about snow in its advisory Monday, Landsea said. But at the same time the energy level in the eye was that of a category 1 hurricane. “Nature doesn’t really give a darn what we call it,’’ Landsea said. “The name isn’t crucial, but knowing what the winds may be, what the storm surge may be, what the rainfall may be is.’’ One reason Sandy may have stayed tropical so long was the unusually warm waters of the Gulf Stream, a river of warm water that flows from the Caribbean up into the North Atlantic. It was 5 to 9 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year. And as a tropical system, Sandy fed on those warm waters and kept travelling north, Masters said. That could account for the last-minute boost in speed, too, that Sandy had as it neared shore, accelerating to 28 mph.

B.C. communities don’t wait for tsunami warnings C anadian Press

QUEEN CHARLOTTE, B.C. – The timing of the B.C. government’s response to a weekend earthquake and subsequent tsunami warning is under scrutiny, but many local officials say they don’t wait for the province before putting their plans into action. The magnitude-7.7 quake struck off Haida Gwaii on Saturday evening and triggered tsunami warnings along the B.C. coast and as far away as Hawaii, though there

were no reports of major damage. Questions have been raised about how long it took for the province’s emergency program to issue a tsunami alert, with several municipalities confirming they didn’t receive official word for about an hour. But those same communities say their emergency plans don’t hinge on official warnings from the province, and were put into action as soon as the ground stopped shaking.

Mayor Carol Kulesha of the Village of Queen Charlotte says she believes the government took too long to notify local officials, but she says the community’s tsunami plan took effect immediately after the quake. She says residents in her remote community know they will be on their own in the early hours of a disaster, and she says many started moving to higher ground without anyone telling them to.

Spokesman Kevin Gaudet says eliminating plastic bags will cause job losses in the plastic manufacturing industry, including family-owned small businesses. The coalition says the ban won’t reduce pollution, as some supporters have argued. The group says consumers will start using more paper bags, which

don’t recycle well and consume three times the energy to produce. The ban, which council narrowly voted in favour of last June, is set to go into effect on Jan. 1. Mayor Rob Ford is a vehement critic of the ban, and city solicitor Anna Kinastowski has warned it could spark legal action.

Torontonians group up to fight upcoming bag ban C anadian Press

TORONTO – A coalition of environmentalists, retailers and taxpayer advocates has formed to fight Toronto’s upcoming ban on plastic bags. The alliance of 15 organizations launched a campaign at city hall on Monday to inform the public about the ban’s shortcomings.
