Elementary students enjoyed the new playground equipment at the school on Monday.
New playground in use at SESS By Steve Arstad
The new playground at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School was completed on Monday. Elementary students wasted no time making use of the new equipment, in spite of a very wet morning. The equipment
was supplied out of a $50,000 playground equipment grant from the province, and represents the first phase of playground improvements at the school. A new sport court is also in the works, expected to be complete by next spring.
Crime Stoppers in the South Okanagan Similkameen are again embarking on their annual door to door “coupon fundraiser” throughout our area. We have engaged 4 Elements Consulting Inc. (formerly Rocky Mountain Marketing) again this year and trust that their interaction with the public will be as respectful as it has been in the past. This is one of our major fundraisers for the year for Crime Stoppers. All canvassers will be dressed in an orange and black jacket with Crime Stoppers embroidered on the left front area along with photo ID around their necks. We encourage all citizens to ask to have a look at their ID if they so wish. Crime Stoppers is a “community based” program and as such, does not receive government funding nor any police budget, monies so the generosity of our
citizens, service clubs and businesses is integral to the success of our program. We would like to thank all of the businesses that have participated in offering discounts for services they provide in our “coupon booklet” and encourage residents of the South Okanagan Simillkameen to patronize them when possible. The cost of the coupons will remain at $25 plus HST for nearly $1,100 in savings. Crime Stoppers would like to thank everyone in advance for their consideration in supporting our program and helping to keep our communities safe for all. Should anyone have any questions or concerns pertaining to this fundraising campaign or the canvassers, please contact Al Sismey Regional Crime Stoppers Coordinator at 250 770-4721. Again, our sincere thanks for your help in this very important Crime Stoppers fundraiser.

RDOS Directors declare war on excessive signage Enough is enough, declare several directors as committee moves to push ministry to take action By Steve Arstad The Review The regional district Planning and Development Committee discussed the excessive signage issue plaguing the South Okanagan and Similkameen at the October 18 RDOS Director’s meeting. Staff made a hurried presentation outling the results of research performed earlier this year, which included an inventory of signs lining Highway 97 and Eastside Road. Chief Administrative Officer Bill Newell told the board that signage regulations were not being enforced by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. He noted also that enforcement must prioritize and take a long term approach to the issue of eliminating excessive roadside signage. Of particular concern is “third party signage,” that is, signage not related to the property the signs are located upon. Area “C” Director Allan Patton offered to take the issue to the Advisory Planning Committee for

Director’s motion regarding smart meters splits board
Public outcry over smart meters prompts action by Oliver rural director By Steve Arstad The Review
A director’s motion regarding smart meters was presented to the regional district board at the
October 18 regular meeting. Area “C” Director Allan Patton presented a motion to the board “to write Fortis and relevant provincial ministers to ask for a moratorium on the instalation of smart meters in British Columbia until an “opt-out” option is made available to jurisdictions.” E xc e p t i o n wa s
taken to the preamble to the motion, which included suggestions that the wireless meters could be hazardous to health. Director Patton noted that “lots of passionate people were taking a stand against smart meters”, not wishing to get caught up in the technical debate over the issue. “There are lots of
questions out there regarding this - that’s why I brought it up,” he said. Penticton Director Gary Litke also agreed that the board shouldn’t be getting into arguments about health issues, noting as well that people see the issue as significant. Area “F” Director (West Bench) Michael Brydon ob-
served that the issue wasn’t the board’s responsibility. “Why are we doing this?” he asked. Osoyoos Director Stu Wells suggested the motion be condensed down. “We shouldn’t be dealing with the preamble,” he said. The board ultimately chose to pass the motion, voting 9-8 in favour.

Cawston based enterprise is all about small business Direct Organics Plus proves that small business can be a game changer when it comes to building markets and satisfying public demand By Steve Arstad The Review Small business is important to B.C., especially so in the Lower Similkameen. Ninety-eight per cent of all business in the province is defined as small business which are enterprises employing fewer than 50 employees, or a business that is operated by a person who is self employed and working without help. Small businesses are even more important in the Lower Similkameen, where few, if any big business exists. On a provincial basis, small business employs 57 per cent of private sector jobs; in the Lower Similkameen, that number is closer to 100 per cent. Direct Organics Plus, based in Cawston, is one Similkameen based company that understands the importance of small business in the province. The organic packer, one of three in the valley, fills a market niche in the province for smaller shipments of organic fruits and vegetables that larger packers can’t efficiently handle. It’s a case of small business supporting small business. Direct Organics employs between eight and 15 seasonal workers at its packinghouse
on Main Street in Cawston, and one full time position. The company puts together mixed pallets of locally grown produce for distribution to small stores. The facility is supplied by smaller agricultural operations in the Lower Similkameen as well - the largest of the packinghouse’s 15 growers produces 500 bins annually. “We’re referred to as a “hybrid” limited company,” explained organic grower Ron Schneider, who directs the operation along with Ted Abbott. Growers also have shares in the company, which did over one million dollars in sales last year. Schneider describes the operation as “struggling” but viable. “Our costs continue to go up - but food prices aren’t,” he said ruefully, adding that Direct Organics plays an important and necessary role in supplying smaller retail operations as well as providing a place for the smaller grower to bring their produce. Growers who market on their own can also use the company’s facilities as a depot, and Direct Organics also sells directly to the public out of their facility. The company has found a niche sale, assisting in supplying the B.C. schools lunch program, something that is shared locally with Harker’s Organics, also in Cawston. The packinghouse complements neighbour Cawston Cold Storage, who field an operation roughly ten times their size. Cawston Cold Storage do not assemble mixed pallets, working with larger retailers. The two packinghouses work together when
mutually convenient, but for the most part enjoy different markets. Direct Organics markets roughly 40 per cent of its fruits and vegetables through Discovery Organics for distribution throughout the west. The remaining 60 per cent is marketed directly to retailers, who are also located anywhere from the Photo by Steve Arstad Lower Mainland to Manitoba. “Direct Organics approached Colette Banman and Aly Shore pack Bosc pears at me to start this business more the Direct Organics Plus packinghouse in Cawston. than a decade ago,” said Annie Direct Organics, along with distributor Discovery Moss of Discovery Organics.

Keremeos traffic was going to the dogs last Monday.

Fortunately, these two canines were practising their driving skills while their motorhome was parked.
Remuneration review during regular meeting of council By Steve Arstad The Review Keremeos Village Council took a look at their remuneration and expenses during the October 22 regular meeting of council. The current bylaw for mayor and council remuneration does not include a provision for an increase. Staff researched other similar sized municipalities in B.C. and came to the conclusion that Keremeos politicians’ remuneration is below the average. Mayor Bauer kicked off the discussion, commenting that council should
lead by example, pressing for zero increases this year. Councillor Gary Thielmann thought that council should address the issue towards the end of the current term, to set a policy for the incoming council. Council voted unanimously in favour of freezing remuneration. On the topic of expenses, Mayor Bauer expressed a willingness to lead once again with no increase. Further discussion took place over expense policy, with staff advising that the policy should stipulate reimbursement of expenses only for the lowest of mileage or costs of public trans-
portation when travelling on village business. Mayor Bauer disagreed, noting that public transportation schedules often did not coincide with politician’s schedules, making it inconvenient at times to use what might be the less expensive form of transportation. It was ultimately agreed to clarify the accommodation policy, and council received staff ’s report on remuneration and expenses. Council also spent some time reviewing a draft copy of the Official Community Plan, prior to receiving the lengthy document for information.
South Okanagan Concert Society introduces concert season for 2012-2013 Contributed November is often a grey month in the Okanagan, a time between the beauty of fall and the snows of winter. It is a time to be intentional about lifting the spirits. The South Okanagan Concert Society has something that might just do the trick. On Friday, November 2 the stunning lyric soprano, Tracy Fehr, will be performing at 7:30 p.m. in our interim venue, the Oliver Alliance Church. Tracy, accompanied by pianist, Dennis Nordlund, offers a programme that is filled with variety. Maybe an aria from Puccini’s “Tosca” appeals? What about some AfroAmerican spirituals? Favourite showtunes like “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man” might be the thing to warm your heart. Don’t be surprised if that warmed heart is racing by the time the Dvorak and Rachmaninoff numbers conclude the evening. This concert offers it all. Flex pass tickets are on sale now at Beyond Bliss in Oliver and at Imperial Office Pro in Osoyoos. A four admission pass costs only $60. The four admissions are entirely flexible and can be used together or in combination. Single admission is $20. Young people 17 and under are welcome to attend the concert free. A classically trained Lyric Coloratura Soprano, Tracy Fehr holds a Bachelor of Music Vocal Performance from the Univer-
sity of Alberta and an A.R.T.C. in Singing Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto. She has performed in venues throughout the world and has combined her considerable talents with a desire to give voice to those less fortunate in developing countries. In 2008, for example, she formed an organization in Tunisia and assisted over 50 single moms with education and skills training so they could support themselves and their babies. In Guatemala she was involved in musical projects with the Casa Esperanza (safe home for abandoned/neglected children). In 2011 she spent several weeks on a Song for Hope tour in North Africa and the U.K. raising funds and awareness for the work of her livelihood projects. Accompanist, Dennis Nordlund, is also a many faceted musician. He has a BSc in Zoology as well as the Performers A.R.T.C. from the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto! Dennis expresses his passion for music by performing throughout the Okanagan as soloist, accompanist for vocalists, choirs, intrumentalists and theatrical productions. At his Penticton studio he teaches piano, composition, accompanying and music theory . He is a member of a jazz trio and a chamber ensemble. Anyone from the Osoyoos area needing transportation by van to the concert, please call Maureen at 250 495 7978.

Core service review is a good idea Keremeos taxpayers should be pleased at the recent Request for Proposal issued by the village for an upcoming core services review of the municipality’s organization. The review - which was also requested by Keremeos resident Bob Thurston during question period at a council meeting earlier this year - is expected to determine the appropriate number of employees for the village in addition to providing recommendations on union staff wages and management/exempt staff salaries. As well, the report will include a comparison of the staffing component and salaries in comparative B.C. municipalities. The review will come at a cost to taxpayers in the village, but there is a good chance that in the long run, money will be saved through the consultant’s recommendations. The RFP is also coming at a time when organizations like the Canadian Taxpayers Federation are editorializing the need for provinces to control “wage creep” - where the provincial government’s net zero bargaining philosophy has slowed at the that level, but wages continue to rise unabated at the municipal level. “City halls have failed to follow the province’s example and kept increasing their pay scales—and property taxes,” said Jordan Bateman of the CTF. It’s time for an independent, third party look at the village’s operations, in order to ensure the taxpayer is getting maximum dollar for his/her taxes. Regionally, Princeton and Keremeos are the only municipalities that have yet to do a core service review; while not normally in favour of yet another study, this is one which we think will result in genuine tax savings - and increased efficiencies in village operations - to residents of Keremeos.

Little new in B.C. Liberal renewal By Tom Fletcher Black Press 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 preelection 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 government-guaranteed 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 beyond the talking stage. The resolutions continued the theme of confront-
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. 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.

Thanks to volunteers, politicians, not so much
To the Editor I extend congratulations to the “Taste of our Valley” committee and volunteers who made this event on October 20 so successful. Once again we see volunteers helping with events that the entire South Similkameen can enjoy. I was pleased to see all of the Similkameen Winery Association members present. The good variety of food vendors was enjoyed by all. The event was well attended and the silent auction is always an interesting segment. I
noted all the items were donated and supplied by local businesses and small family enterprises. I did not see, or expect to see; any large box stores supply a single item for the auction. Please try to support your local businesses when possible. The other glaring absence, at least to me, was that only two local politicians out of seven were in attendance! Thank you very much volunteers! Walter Despot, Keremeos
Twelve year old tells it like it is To the Editor: I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I didn’t pass on this extraordinary YouTube video link; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bx5S c3vWefE&feature=fvwrel I have to admire the tenacity and resolve of this girl. If one can simply expand the topic of which she speaks to include the ramifications on the state of the globe today, one can surely see how we, the people, are being
enslaved by the system perpetrated upon us by the private banking sector, corporations and the corporate minded governments here in Canada and throughout the world. From resource extraction through human rights violations to re-allocation of wealth from the masses to their “rulers”, this girl has given us reason to grab this tiger by the tail and change its’ demeanor. Thoughtfully, Steve Brown, Kaleden
Remuneration research not a reflection of reality By Steve Arstad The Review Keremeos village staff researched remuneration amounts paid to the mayor and council of similar sized communities in B.C. in an effort to gauge the “fairness” of remuneration paid to officials in the village. Staff concluded that the mayor and council did indeed rate an increase, as their remuneration fell below the average for the communities surveyed. (See table) Fortunately for the mayor and council, they decided not to heed this advice and instead took the high road, denying themselves an increase in spite of “evidence” that they might have used to justify more money. I see problems with staff ’s method of assessing remuneration for the mayor and council. All communities are not created equal; therefore an assessment of remuneration cannot be considered complete based purely on direct comparisions to stipends paid to equivalently sized communities. Taking a look at the list, it is apparent that the communities paying their politicians the highest remuneration are the ones that have
a diversified tax base - simply speaking, they have taxable resources that go beyond those of the residential homeowner. Fort St. James, Gold River Lumby, and 100 Mile House all have an industrial base; Cache Creek has extra cash through revenue received from being a depository for Lower Mainland garbage. On the other hand, the communities more similar to Keremeos’ economy - Kaslo, Ashcroft, Fruitvale, Salmo and Montrose - all have remuneration that is less than what Keremeos’ politicians get. Harrison Hot Springs compensation for their politicians is anomalously high, compared to every other community on the list. (Removing that one entry changes the average remuneration paid to mayors, for instance, by nearly $1,000.) One could argue that it shouldn’t even be on the list. Comparing remuneration based on a simple average of similar sized communities doesn’t cut it. Remuneration for politicians - and wages for municipal staff, for that matter - should be based on factors that more completely describe a community’s ability to pay.

SESS senior boys soccer team heading for the Provincials Cross country team sending three to Provincials in Prince George By Steve Arstad The Review The senior boys soccer team finished third at the Okanangan Valleys tournament on the weekend of October 20-21, therefore qualifying them for the Provincial Finals in Victoria, which begin this week on Thursday, November 1. Sixteen teams are involved in this year’s tournament. Similkameen Elementary Secondary School’s grade eight volleyball team lost to Summerland Middle School two sets to zero on October 23. The SESS grade eight team also lost to Skaha Lake Middle School two sets to zero, but managed a tie against Kettle Valley Railway School, one set each - good enough for a second place finish. Playoffs begin next week
for the junior teams. The senior girls didn’t fare as well at a weekend tournament in Penticton on October 27-28. The girls finished seventh out of eight teams in a tournament that included a number of double and triple A teams. “We are still hoping to make the provincials,” said Principal Marcus Toneatto, noting that the team has not lost a match in the South Zone this year. The next tournament for the girls is the Valleys on November 16 and 17. The SESS cross country running team is sending three runners to the provincials championships on Friday, November 2 for a race on Saturday in Prince George. The runners are Kassidy Todd, Noah Beglaw, both grade nine, and Cael Warner in grade 11. They qualified at the Valleys in Summerland against over 300 runners from single A to triple A schools.

which will be used as a comparison to the prior drill logs. This had been a very exciting and busy month for Canadian Mining. Having a compliant 43-101 Resource Report on the Sun Group Zeolite Project will not only establish the size and grade of the zeolite deposit but brings the company closer to certifying its zeolite for use by municipalities, organic growers, vineyards, composting, animal waste treatment and radioactive containment both nationally and internationally.
The Canadian Mining Company Inc. reported recently that under the supervision of the company’s Mr. John Beck; Hard Rock Drilling has been operating 24 hours a day at the company’s Sun Group Zeolite Project. Mr. Ray Paquette, CEO was also on site to collaborate with the team. Over the course of the past week, roads have been built, pits dug, drilling equipment mobilized and water and power sourced. During drilling, core samples were inspected and delivered to Canadian Mining’s core shack for logging and splitting in preparation for shipping to Maxxam Analytical, Burnaby for whole-rock analysis (WRA) and cation exchange capacity (CEC).

Seven starry sisters
These evenings, if it is clear, you will see a small sickle-shaped group of stars in the eastern sky. Depending upon your eyes and the clarity and darkness of the sky, you will see between six and ten stars in the group. Binoculars will show it to contain hundreds of stars. It is a very good example of what is known as an “open star cluster”. In ancient times, wh e n s k i e s we re clearer and darker, and light pollution had not yet been in-
vented, the cluster was more conspicuous than it is for most of us now. The Greeks called it the Pleiades. The nine brightest stars are named after the daughters of Atlas: Alcyone, Calaeno, Electra, Maia, Merope, Sterope and Taygete, and their parents, Atlas and the sea nymph Pleione. Obviously Atlas was not holding up the sky all the time. Our Mediaeval ancestors called the cluster the “Seven Sisters”. The Japanese call it Subaru. This star cluster was known by the North American Aboriginal nations. In one of their legends, Tio Pepe, or the Devil’s Tower, the volcanic neck in Wyoming featured in the movie “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, was
a refuge for seven maidens pursued by a bear. The vertical striations on the tower were said to be scratches from the b e a r’s c l aw s. The less romantic explanation is that the scratches are columns formed from cooling lava. You don’t have to be an astronomer to enjoy the beauty of the Pleiades, but star clusters like the Pleiades are also jewel boxes from a purely scientific point of view. All the sibling stars in a cluster were born at about the same time. However, some of them managed to capture more material from their birth cloud than the others did. This is important because a star with twice the mass of the Sun radiates energy at more than ten times the rate. It will therefore age five times fast-
er. Grabbing more stuff is not really that good an idea if you are a star. By measuring the relative brightnesses of the stars in the cluster we can estimate their relative masses. By measuring their temperatures as well we can estimate what stage they have reached in their lives, although they were all born at the same time. This makes the star cluster a laboratory for studying the lives of stars and how they work. The stars of the Pleiades are all bluewh i t e i n c o l o u r. Through binoculars they look like a rich sprinkling of diamonds on black velvet. The movement of our atmosphere makes them twinkle, which makes the sight even more spectacular. The stars are embedded in a silvery cloud. We used to think that was the final remnant of the stars’ birth cloud. However, now we
know it is just a cloud of material the cluster happens to be drifting through. Old astronomy books often started chapters with a bit of poetry. One on my bookshelf quotes a bit of Tennyson, “Many a night I saw the Pleiads, rising through the mellow shade, glitter like a swarm of fireflies, tangled in a silver braid”. The poetry might have vanished f ro m a s t ro n o my books, but it has not vanished from astronomy. Grab the binoculars, look at the Pleiades and see for yourself. Mars is low in the Southwest after sunset. Jupiter rises around 8 p.m. and Venus around 5 a.m. The Moon will reach last quarter on the 6th. Ken Tapping is an astronomer with the National Research Council’s Dominion Radio Astro-physical Observatory, Penticton.

Hey, wife beaters - (others may be interested in reading this, too) October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month By Ron Shonk RCMP Victim Services Coordinator Yes, there’s more than one of you. You’re not alone. But don’t take any comfort in that. What you do is wrong. There may be reasons for what you do, but there is no excuse for it. Your behaviour may be understandable, but it is never justifiable. And yes, there are women who abuse and batter men. But there are many more of you than them. (Although these words are meant for them, too. There’s no more excuse or justification for their behavior than there is for yours. Either way – either direction – it’s just plain wrong! And it’s got to stop. T h at m ay b e hard to do for you. Maybe you’re not strong enough to stop. Maybe you’re too weak to control your own behaviour. (Maybe that’s even why you do it. Maybe
deep inside you know you’re weak, or have been told you are, so you act tough with her because you can get away with it, and somehow it makes you feel better. For a while. For the moment.) But it’s still got to stop. If you can’t do it alone, you’re not alone. Or if you are, you don’t have to be. Get some help. That may be hard for you to do too. Not because there’s no help available (there is), but because you work so hard to keep your abusive behaviour a secret (which itself is evidence that you know what you do is wrong). Yet right here is a helpful truth: Asking for help is not a sign of weakness, but an act of strength – a sign of courage. I know you didn’t ask for this article, but even these words are meant to be helpful to you, not primarily to judge you. If you’re honest with yourself, you already know what you do is wrong. I write this to get your attention, and to encourage you to change, and to encourage you to get help if you need it. And … because you’re worth it! I be-
lieve everyone is. It’s sometimes hard to see, or even to believe, but I do continue to believe that everyone – at heart – has goodness and value within them. You’re not a bad guy; it’s that you do bad things. And you, as well as she, deserve better. And change is possible. Better is possible. If you need help, where can you get it? Here are some suggestions. (1)Talk to your doctor, or your pastor if you have one. In both cases, it’s usually confidential. (2)Talk to a friend, or even two of them together. Here in our valley the “Men Together” Initiative has over 100 males who have pledged “never to commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women and children”. They’re all telling you to stop your abusive behavior. Many of them are also ready to help you do so. If you want a list of them, let me know. You’re likely to find among them someone you already know and trust. (3)Go to a counselor. Currently there’s a free counseling service – the “Change for Good”
Christmas hamper committee looking at program changes Contributed
Wednesday, November 28 Friday, November 30 The overwhelming success of the Christmas Hamper Fund has been due to the generosity and commitment of our donors and volunteers. Without you we would not have achieved our mandate. Thank you! We hope you will support this change.
For several years the Similkameen Christmas Hamper Fund has provided hampers and vouchers to many families and individuals in our area. We wish to continue this service but in a new and improved format. This change is a result of increased abuse of the program. Approved recipients will receive a pre - determined hamper filled with a nutritious Christmas dinner suitable to the needs of each applicant. All applications will be accepted at the Keremeos Information Centre Review archive photo on the following days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers pack hampers at Victory Hall during the Monday, No- 2011-2012 Christmas season. vember 26
Program – available for men who want to stop their abusive behaviours. Here’s their contact information: sos_change4good@ yahoo.ca 250-4885 9 3 9 . ( P re s e n t ly, funding is being pursued to continue this program. If unsuccessful, counseling may have to be paid for privately, or sought through BC’s Interior Health or other sources.) Here are a few more sobering facts. They may help motivate you to take action. 1. Spousal assault is a crime. You can be arrested, go to jail,
lose your family. 2. It’s harder to keep your behavior a secret. As community awareness increases, more people – including your own friends, neighbors, and family members – are reporting this behavior and their suspicions to the police, and finding the courage to do so. 3. It’s not a private issue. People are aware that abusive behaviours in your home also affects them. We’re all concerned for the well-being and future well-being of our friends, our mothers, our sisters, and
with bullying behaviors at school and assaultive behaviour on dates. (You may recognize this as part of your own childhood experience.) 6. More men are finding the courage and strength to stop their abusive behaviours, and become healthier and happier persons. You can too. Your family deserves it, and so do you. Remember, you’re n o t a l o n e. We ’re counting on you: Be a real man. Show courage, not meanness. Take control of yourself, not others.
our kids, and we’re speaking out. More and more, spousal and child abuse is intolerable. 4. “But I never hit her.” Even verbal, emotional, and overcontrolling abuse is violent behaviour. And unaddressed, it tends to escalate both in frequency and in severity. It can be deadly. Now is a better time than later to stop it. 5. Children who witness abuse are often deeply affected and hurt. They may also learn to carry the pattern into your family’s next generation, or even sooner

The two leading types of fraud in North America are identity theft and real estate title fraud. You may think that you will never be a victim of fraud, but unless you take the right precautions it could happen to you. Identity Theft In 2009, the Canadian AntiFraud Centre (CAFC) received identity fraud reports from 11,095 Canadian victims, for a total loss of more than 10 million dollars.1 Real Estate Title Fraud Industry experts estimate that the average real estate title fraud amounts to $300,000 and cost Canadians as much as $1.5 billion a year.2 The most common forms are mortgage fraud – when a buyer provides fraudulent information to secure a mortgage; and title fraud – when a person fraudulently assumes the identity of a homeowner and takes over title of the home, sells the property or arranges a new mortgage then takes the money and runs. Avoid fraud frights with these defensive measures: • Keep personal information private. For example, your Social Insurance Number (SIN) is usually required only for tax purposes or banking. • PINs and passwords should never be shared with anyone. Don’t repeat them or other account numbers aloud where they can be overheard. • Destroy all receipts and any forms containing personal info before putting these items in the garbage. • Carry in your wallet or purse only the identification and cards you absolutely need. Keep others, such as your SIN card and birth certificate, in a secure place. • Keep your chequebook in hand and your cards in sight when making purchases and take your receipts with you. • Periodically review credit card and bank statements and credit reports and report any irregularities. • Know billing cycles and follow up if your bills don’t arrive when they should. • Protect your outgoing mail – use only post office collection boxes or your local post office. And don’t leave incoming mail in your mailbox. • Delete spam, especially any email asking for personal or financial info; legitimate businesses would never ask for personal information by email or during an unsolicited phone call. • Be prepared should your credit or bank cards, driver’s license or SIN card are stolen or
