Greyhound cuts won’t speed transit service by John Arendt

While Greyhound wants to cut its service in the South Okanagan, B.C. Transit is not rushing to replace the bus with a regional transit service. The municipality has been working to bring a regional service to the area for several years. Although Summerland now has transit bus shelters in place, nothing more than a rudimentary service is in place. “We have to learn more,”

Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino said. “We have to look at what the costs are.” Greyhound has announced it is cutting its service because of low ridership. Instead of offering four buses in each direction each day, the proposed cuts will bring the service to two buses each direction each day. Perrino said the low ridership should be a concern. “If Greyhound’s doing that badly, will it be that bad for B.C. Transit?” she asked. Greyhound uses 54-pas-

senger buses for all its routes, including the Summerland to Penticton route. The buses do not reach capacity. The least used of the buses averages 3.9 passengers. Perrino said a regional service must be planned carefully to ensure people will use it. She said potential passengers will not use a service if it is a significant inconvenience to them. “We need to have it at least four to six times a day,” she said.

Unless volunteers step forward to join the Summerland Fall Fair’s board of directors, the 103-year-old festival is in danger of folding. Connie Davis, past president of the fair, said there are just five people on the board. Ideally, the board would have 12 members, although it is possible to function with nine. “It’s rather discouraging,” Davis said. “We can’t proceed with just five directors.” When the fair is held on the second weekend of September, volunteers step forward to help out. The difficulty comes in the rest of the year, when planning and preparation work are required. For several years, the board has been losing members, although those who remained were willing to take on extra responsibilities. This year, Davis has said she will step down from the presidency, although she will remain on the board as the past president to assist the new president. Davis said new volunteers help to provide fresh ideas and fresh connections to the board. While a suggestion has been made to cancel the fair for one year, Davis said the board voted against such a move. In its history, the fair has been cancelled just once, during one of the world wars, she said. She believes cancelling the fair for now would result in it closing permanently. The board will meet on Wednesday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Fall Fair office on Kelly Avenue. At that meeting, the future of the fair will be determined, depending on whether volunteers have come forward to serve on the board. Board terms are for two years. The board meets once a month for an hour to an hour and a half. Members then have responsibilities between board meetings. Those interested in volunteering are asked to contact Davis at 250-494-1448.

Arrests made in gun trafficking ring Summerland storage locker used during international smuggling operation by Kristi Patton Black Press Two Penticton men were arrested, and subsequently released, for their alleged involvement in an international gun trafficking ring.

“One was arrested after officers stopped him, and a man he was with, in a vehicle, with officers finding seven firearms and prohibited firearms-related devices including a silencer in the car,” said Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. Chief Officer Dan Malo, at a press conference in Vancouver on Thursday. Maureen Guylas,

Police report Driver prohibited

On Oct. 24, while conducting a road check, police noticed a motorist attempting to evade the check. The driver was later stopped on Blair Street. He had been prohibited from driving. He is now facing charges of driving while prohibited.

Trees hit

Overnight on Oct. 20 to 21, a motorist on Herron Road drove into a pair of maple trees. Residents noticed a 1960s Ford pickup truck speeding away from the scene. Police are still investigating the incident.

Vehicles collide in roundabout

On Oct. 16 at 12:15 p.m., police were called following a two-vehicle collision at the roundabout at Prairie Valley Road and Rosedale Avenue. A Ford Taurus was in the roundabout when a Chevrolet Cavalier entered and struck the rear passenger side. The driver of the Cavalier received a $121 fine for entering the roundabout when it was not safe to do so.

media liaison for the CFSEU-BC, confirmed two Penticton men were arrested but no formal charges have been laid yet so their names cannot be released. The gun trafficking investigation is continuing and Malo said they expect further charges to be laid. Vernon man, Riley Stewart Kotz, 32, was a primary target formally arrested on Oct. 19 and charged with 34 firearms related offences. Malo said Kotz allegedly tried to pull

out a handgun hidden in his clothing in an effort  to disarm two of the arresting officers before he was able to be handcuffed. Simultaneous to this arrest and the Penticton arrests, warrants were executed in Pace, Florida where a woman associated with the suspect was arrested. Officers searched houses in the 400 block of Bennett Street and 2000 block of Sandstone Crescent in Penticton, a storage locker in the 9900 block of Victoria South Road in Summerland and a home

in Vernon. From these properties they seized close to 40 firearms. Acting on a tip, the 10-month investigation began with undercover police officers purchasing numerous guns and accessories off of Craigslist that are illegal in Canada. These included magazines modified to increase their capacity, handguns, machine guns that were re-engineered and some that were made into fully automatic firearms. Malo said it is

believed some of the guns and magazines were purchased in the U.S. and smuggled into Canada by driving them across the border to be sold to the highest bidder. He said most likely the seized guns would have ended up in the hands of gangsters, some who would pay up to $4,500 for them. C F S E U - B C recovered approximately 80 firearms, over-capacity magazines and thousands of rounds of ammunition during the investigation which

among heavy users of Facebook or Twitter. More mainstream use of social media means cyber-bullying is becoming more widespread and not just limited to online chat rooms, according to 6S Marketing president Chris Breikss. “Considering the speed of social media and its availability — through smart phones, tablets — harassment has become inescapable,” he said. “It turns into a round-the-clock

nightmare.  The internet’s immediacy gives bullies a perception of power and the sheer volume of these unmoderated interactions can have devastating consequences.” About 46 per cent of B.C. adults use Facebook daily ­— rising to 64 per cent of 18- to 34-year-olds —  and levels are higher in households with teens. Sixteen per cent use Twitter daily (37 per cent in the 18-34 group.)

Poll shows cyber-bully fears run high About 23 per cent of B.C. teens have been victims of cyber-bullying, according to a new survey of parents. The online poll of 504 B.C. adults by West-6S Marketing found widespread concern about cyberbullying, with 89 per cent very or somewhat concerned. Eight per cent of adults surveyed also said they’ve been cyber-bullied and that rose to 12 per cent

LEGALLY SPEAKING...

A public service message from Bell, Jacoe & Company

Fall is upon us! It looks like we have turned the corner into Fall. We have enjoyed a very nice September. While not everyone is a snow fanatic, we all enjoy the Okanagan for having a little taste of winter without the prairie-like temperatures. No matter what outdoor activity you enjoy, the fall and winter season is a time when everyone should take extra precautions when driving or traveling. Arriving safely is far more important than getting there quickly. Soon the roads are going to be getting icy and snow covered, so slow down and take that little time that will ensure your safe arrival. If you are going to enjoy more spirited beverages this fall and winter, please take advantage of Designated Drivers and Taxis. We will all be better off for it.

our pick

Finding volunteers If volunteers do not come forward soon, Summerland might not have a fall fair in 2013. The fair has been a Summerland tradition for 103 years, but organizing it takes a lot of work. Ideally, the board would consist of 12 members, although it is possible to take care of the organization with nine members. At present, there are just five board members. The fair is a popular event in Summerland. It draws good crowds and it brings in many exhibitors. Getting volunteers to help set up and take down the fair has not been too difficult. The problem has come with getting people to commit to a two-year board term. Without a board, there is no way to run a fair. If the fair shuts down for one year, it is doubtful it could ever start up again. It is far easier to continue the fair than to bring it back once it has stopped. The shortage of volunteers is nothing new. In the past decade, the organizers of the fair have put out several calls for volunteer directors. Those calls were answered and the fair was able to keep going just a little longer. This time, we wonder if we have heard the final call for help from the fair. While many organizations have trouble getting committed volunteers for the planning process, it is puzzling that in a community of this size the necessary help could not be found. In three weeks, the board will meet once more. At that meeting, the members must decide how to proceed. If additional directors still have not come forward, then maybe it is time to regretfully acknowledge the end of a long-standing Summerland tradition. Keeping a community event on life support is not a good solution.

Summerland kids are fortunate to have a fun, safe place to celebrate Halloween. The annual Halloween Haunt at the community pool hosts more than 300 children. The event has become a popular Summerland tradition thanks to aquatic centre staff and volunteers from many parts of the community who assist in making the evening memorable for the children and teens who attend.

Little new in B.C. Liberal renewal WHISTLER – 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: “ To g e t h e r. Building BC.” This slight Tom Fletcher 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

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

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. the theme of confronting 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

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 acrossthe-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, well-attended event that contradicts the notion of a party in disarray. The bad news is, nothing has really changed.

culls

Even though Summerlanders will soon have less bus service from Greyhound, plans for a regional transit service are not moving any faster. The cuts to Greyhound service will reduce the number of buses from four a day in each direction to two a day in each direction. We hope the provincial government takes notice and provides us with a regional transit service. The need now is greater than ever before.

Agreement not good for Canada Debate Dear Editor: Have you heard about the deal in Parliament? Most of you probably have not. The deal is dubbed Canada-China FIPA (Foreign Investment and Protection Agreement) and so far as I understand, it appears to protect only one player: China. If finalized this week, it will open doors to multi-

billion dollar buyouts of Canada’s resources. A Globe and Mail writer has called the deal “tantamount to a commercial bill of rights for China in this country” and goes on to say “Nexen is important. But it’s a tree. The investment deal is the forest.” If this deal goes through, Chinese companies will have the right

to sue your municipality, province, and the federal government. FIPA could allow Chinese companies to challenge our laws, and sue our pants off if they don’t get their way. The losers in this situation: employees, the environment, healthy communities, and of course, Canadian taxpayers. This is a 31-year deal

and there is no escape route for Canada if relations begin to falter. This is not a good deal for Canadians. The political agenda of the few running our country is scary to say the least. The fact that the federal government is secretly selling Canada’s resources and rights to the Chinese is taking it to the limit.

As of Oct. 25, no debate had occurred. Without debate or vote, the deal could automatically be approved by Nov. 1. Call MP Dan Albas and find out what’s happening. As Canadians we must stand up to be heard, and stop ignoring the values we hold true before they crumble away. Erin Carlson Summerland

The Early years

A major rain delay

Photo courtesy of the Summerland Museum

Heavy rains in November of 1949 washed out the railway tracks just north of Penticton on the east side of the lake. This train was slowly proceeding on an uphill grade when the engine and one car derailed and went over the bank. Thankfully there were no injuries to crew or passengers. It must have been quite a job to get the hillside stabilized, the rail fixed and the massive engine back on its feet. According to the good ol’ Farmer’s Almanac, we won’t have to worry about heavy rains this November. The forecast is for warmer than average temperatures and slightly less than average precipitation.

absent on deal

Dear Editor: In one week, Prime Minister Stephen Harper could commit Canada to the most sweeping trade deal in a generation without a single debate or vote. If the Canada-China FIPA passes, it will pave the way for China’s massive companies to spend billions buying-out Canada’s natural resource companies. Under FIPA, China’s companies can sue Canadian governments, federal, provincial or municipal, in secret tribunals outside the Canadian court system if those governments do anything that would limit the companies’ profits in Canada. The FIPA would tie our hands for 31 years, making it possible for China’s companies to challenge Canadian laws that create jobs, protect our environment and build healthy communities with billiondollar lawsuits that would cost taxpayers dearly. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and right now Belgium is facing a $3 billion suit from one of China’s companies because of a similar foreign investor agreement. Why would Prime Minister Harper lock us into this secretive and extreme deal? It’s short terms gains for long-term pain, and Canadians and Chinese alike have a right to have a say in the decisions that will shape our lives. M.P. Albas, how can you in good conscience support this? K. Staley Summerland

Passenger service essential in region Dear Editor: From the time the Canadian Pacific Railway was built, subsidized passenger rail travel was provided — the distances in Canada

between settlements, towns and cities was too great. Ordinary people in the early days could not afford to pay the actual cost of passenger service.

Over the many years since passenger rail service was provided, the passenger trains always lost money. CPR and later CNR was paid a subsidy to keep the pas-

senger service rolling. Today, the one railway that is not openly subsidized is the Rocky Mountain Rail Service. Today bus service between towns and

cities is an essential service: The Okanagan Valley has   large numbers of retired senior citizens: Many of those folks on limited pension, cannot afford the cost of air

allow Greyhound buses to carry first class mail. The government would kill two birds with one stone. Greyhound, in the 1950s actually started the courier business in North America. Bus Parcel Express was a winner; why Greyhound dropped their courier monopoly is a mystery. Regardless of why they did it should not matter. The mail service should be reinstated. The mail transportation business would actually not be a subsidy. Carrying passengers and first class mail would be a winner for everybody.

CN-CP Rail sold their passenger rail rolling stock to Via for $500 million. What Via — the taxpayers — had actually acquired was $500 million worth of rolling junk. Most CN-CP passenger rail cars were worn out. By the winter of 1991-92 one hundred cars were taken out of service due to major under carriage failure. Those worn out cars were replaced by the Quebec manufacturer, Bombardier. God only knows how much Bombardier was paid by taxpayers to build the new Via Rail cars.

Tech firm relocates to Summerland Company has worked on numerous international projects

by John Arendt

Communications technology

A worker at North West Technology’s Panama project sets up a communications tower. The company, which relocated to Summerland, has worked on communications infrastructure projects around the world.

Smart meter installation project nearly completed by Tom Fletcher Black Press BC Hydro is getting close to the end of its installation of 1.7 million wireless electricity meters, but the “smart grid” won’t be functional until next spring. Until then, meters will still be read manually or consumption estimated for billing purposes.

Cindy Verschoor, BC Hydro’s communications manager for the smart meter program, said about four per cent of the meter installations remain to be done. Some of the old meters remain in locations around the province, either because they are inaccessible or because owners have refused new ones.

A Canadian technology company, which has worked on projects around the world, has relocated from Alberta to Summerland. North West Technology Inc. designs, supplies and installs communications infrastructure for industrial projects. Its clients have been in mining, oil and gas and forestry industries. Some of the projects have been in Madagascar, Panama, the United States and Canada. Many are multi-year projects in remote locations. Company president Dean Colpitts said the move to Summerland came because of the high cost of land in Alberta. “The cost of doing business in Alberta has grown exponentially in the last 10 years,” he said. “Most of our income is international. That allows us to pick and choose where we’ll be.” The company was formed in Edmonton early in 2003. Since that time, it has

BRENDA MINES

grown and taken on significant projects around the world. At present, North West Technology has nine employees and numerous contractors for its projects. Some of the positions are project-based while others are fulltime.

The company bought a 511 square metre building at 9202 Shale Ave. earlier this year. A 186 square metre office addition was constructed on the north side of the building. There are five people on staff at the Summerland office,

although the staff on site is expected to grow to eight to 10 people, Colpitts said. The Summerland facility also includes warehouse space, allowing the company to store equipment needed for its various projects.

Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry November 8 4 p.m. & 7 p.m. At the LANdmArk 7 CiNemA 250 WiNNipeg, peNtiCtoN

“This is a film about freedom of expression ...” Chinese artist and political activist Ai Weiwei first captured international attention when he was appointed the design consultant for Beijing’s Olympic “Bird’s Nest” stadium. Regarded as one of the most powerful contemporary artists working today, he was runner-up for TIME Magazine’s 2011 Person of the Year. But in China, he is subjected to surveillance and endures swift censorship of his work and activities. This timely film is a portrait of a key contemporary artist and an examination of China’s internal politics in the wake of Olympic promise and growth. (PG)

“In many areas around the world, you can lose your freedom simply because you are asking for freedom.” ~ Ai Weiwei Pre-purchased Tickets: Gallery members & students: $10 • Non-members: $12 Available at the Penticton Art Gallery, 199 Marina Way (250-493-2928) and The Book Shop, 242 Main Street (250-492-6661).

Are electric vehicles right for you? (NC)—Consider a battery electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle if you’re looking to improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle, reduce fuel costs, and reduce CO2 emissions. To get the most benefit, you’ll need access to home charging. You’ll also need to understand your driving habits and decide whether the reduced range of a battery-operated vehicle will be a limitation for you.

Although standard 120 volt home outlets will work, charge time is about 16 to 20 hours. A 240 volt home charging station can be installed to reduce the charge times to six to 10 hours. Two hundred and forty volt outlets are commonly used in homes for electric stoves, clothes dryers and central air conditioning. Commercial charging stations use much higher voltages to reduce charge times to less than 30 minutes. Industry is working to improve battery technology and looking at the feasibility of widespread commercial charging or battery swapping infrastructure.

Rotary Club promotes polio initiative Campaign to end disease has been going since 1985

Signs of support

Rotary members Nick Zaseybida and Bob Van Balkom were among the members of the Summerland Rotary Club holding signs for the Rotary’s polio campaign.

On Oct. 24, members of the Summerland Rotary Club held signs to promote their polio campaign. The campaign is an ongoing Rotary initiative. In 1985, Rotary International launched its Polio Plus program. Polio is a highly infectious disease that primarily affects children under the age of five. It can cause paralysis within hours. However, every child can be immunized with an effective oral vaccination for only 60 cents. In 1988, realizing the effect of this disease, Rotary spearheaded the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Rotary International works with the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Cen-

tres for Disease Control and Prevention and the governments of the affected countries. Since 1985, more than two billion children have received the oral vaccine. Since that time, the reported cases of polio dropped dramatically. In 1988, there were 350,000 cases in 125 countries. In September, 2010, there were 717 cases in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. Rotary International has contributed nearly $800 million to its polio campaign. The Bill and

Melinda Gates Foundation awarded Rotary a $350 million grant for its work. Members also earned another $200 million by the end of June, 2012. This September, Rotary International, the Canadian Federal Government and the Bill Gates Foundation agreed to supply another $1 million each. Since 1988, Rotary International has supplied more than $1.2 billion. More than 2.5 billion children have received the oral vaccination. India has been free of polio for 20 months.

Carla McLeod Special to the Summerland Review

Children and teens gathered at the Summerland Aquatic Centre on Saturday evening for the annual Halloween event, organized by the Parks and Recreation Department.

Test drives raise money for drama department Test driving a new Ford this weekend can help to raise some money for the drama department at Summerland Secondary School. The test drive, a partnership between Skaha Ford and the high school, will help to raise up to $6,000 as part of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School program. For everyone who test drives a Ford Edge, Escape, Focus or F150 during the event, Ford of Canada and Skaha Ford will donate $20 to the school. Heather Ayris, drama teacher at

the school, said last year the event raised $4,500. The money went to pay for costumes needed as the school staged Phantom of the Opera. This year, she hopes to raise the maximum of $6,000 through the test drive program. The school’s production of Hairspray, which will be staged in February, does not require the elaborate costumes used in Phantom, so instead the money raised will go to equipment to benefit the theatre. Ayris said 85 students are already

involved in Hairspray and by the time the show is staged, she expects more than 100 will be involved. The musical features some big dance numbers. Ayris said the students have been working hard to prepare. “I’m more than proud of what they have done so far,” she said. The test drive will take place at the school on Saturday, Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Participants must be 18 or older and must have a valid driver’s license.

There is a limit of one test drive per household.

Concert raises $2,500 to assist orphanage A sold out benefit on Oct. 20 raised money for the Gaige Children’s House in Nepal. The concert was held at the Critteraid Charity Shop on Main Street. With a silent auction of many donated  items, local children performed, a kids helping kids theme prevailed. Performing were 11-year-olds Tiana  Ferlizza and Katarina Sterk, from Summerland,  who sang and danced,  followed by  12-yearold Shaughnessey Rose from Vernon, who  sang and played acoustic guitar. Her version of  the song Imagine by John Lennon had the entire audience joining in. Those who attended opened their hearts and their cheque books as they donated $2,500. The money raised  will enable three more  orphaned children to be placed into

Donna Rutherford, chair of the Legion’s poppy committee, said the campaign is an important way to remember and pay tribute to those who have been killed in wars. While most veterans in Summerland served during World War II, she said it is also important to remember those who are still serving. “There are still people fighting,” she said. “There are quite

a few in Afghanistan.” Since 1921, the poppy has been a national symbol of remembrance. Rutherford said there is good participation for Remembrance Day in Summerland. The schools will all have Remembrance Day events on Friday, Nov. 9. A communitywide Remembrance Day ceremony will be held on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Making music

Shaughnessey Rose, 12, performs a song at a benefit concert at the Critteraid Charity Shop last month. The money raised at the benefit concert went to support an orphanage in Nepal.

Gaige House. This is life-changing for them. Support for the event came from Critteraid Charity Shop, Zias Stonehouse Restaurant, Summerland Wellness Centre and Reflexology, Wellborne Health, The Wild Scallion, The Gym in Penticton, Nepalese Indian Restaurant in Westbank, Natural Waves

Hair Salon, IGA in Summerland, Tiki Shores Resort and Spa in Penticton, Best Western Chelsea in Coquitlam. Another benefit is being planned for early December, with  all funds raised  for Willows Animal Shelter. For more information call Brenda at 250-494-4072.

Health Matters Clinical depression is more than just a passing blue mood. While individual symptoms can vary, feeling persistently sad for at least 2 weeks plus weight loss/gain, insomnia or somnolence, feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fatigue, difficulty concentrating or loss of interest in things you normally enjoy can indicate a problem to be addressed. If you experience these symptoms, talk to someone – soon. Many people understand alcohol is a depressant, but a recent study looked at the relationship between alcohol use and depression in women. While there is a relationship, what was less clear was whether alcohol use precipitated a depressive episode or whether alcohol use was a self-medicating tactic to manage depression. Regardless, it can become a vicious cycle, so seek more appropriate therapy.

Poppies worn for Remembrance Day

Summerlanders are wearing poppies as Remembrance Day approaches. On Friday afternoon, Lt. Col. Harry Quarton of the Summerland Legion presented Mayor Janice Perrino with a poppy to launch the annual poppy campaign. From now until Remembrance Day on Nov. 11, more than half of the Canadian population will wear poppies on their lapels and collars.

Dysthymia is a mood disorder, not as crippling as a major depression but it still reduces your “zest for life.” Although you are still able to go through the motions of day-to-day life, you experience symptoms similar to depression and they persist for at least 2 months. Dysthymia is often missed and lasts an average of 5 years. Many effective therapies exist, so don’t suffer needlessly. According to a study in the Journal of the American Geriatric Society, seniors with a pet suffer lower rates of depression that those who don’t. In addition to giving you someone else to focus on, they provide companionship, improve self-esteem and calmness and even reduce blood pressure and stress hormone levels. Not to mention the benefits of getting out for a daily walk! Pets: the miracle drug? Our pharmacists are also good friends to have when you feel things aren’t quite right. Share your symptoms with us for a fresh perspective on your individual situation.

Canada is not for sale If you believe everything you read on the Internet and some letters to the editor, you have likely heard false and erroneous claims that Canada is essentially being given away to China as a result of a secret FIPA (foreign investment promotion and protection agreement) that has been hastily put together solely to give away our Country’s natural resources. Let me state for the record that such claims are complete nonsense, and in many cases are intentionally fabricated falsehoods that use fear-mongering and misinformation in order to mislead others. While stating personal opinion is an important and fundamental aspect in our free and democratic society, I remain concerned how online information, or in this case misinformation, is increasingly being used in an effort to deliberately deceive Canadians. My report this week is not in any way intended to seek support from those who oppose measures that encourage trade but rather to provide factually correct information so citizens can have a more informed point of view. What is a FIPA? Contrary to what you may have read,

a FIPA is not a formal trade treaty but rather is an agreement between two different countries that outlines the rules, obligations, administration and dispute resolution mechanisms that can both protect and promote foreign investment in each other’s respective country. In essence a FIPA agreement establishes important guidelines that promote a fair and transparent process for those investors looking to do business in another country. FIPA agreements are not new, in fact the current proposed FIPA agreement with China actually began negotiation almost twenty years ago back in 1994. Further, these agreements are not secret. The current 31-page proposed Canada-China FIPA is publicly posted online with 24 other FIPA agreements that have been reached with various countries over the past two decades. Please contact me if you are interested in viewing any of these agreements. Does a FIPA agreement hand over Canada’s natural resources? Absolutely not and any claim that it does is patently false. Acquisitions of Canadian resources by foreign invest-

Ottawa Report

Dan Albas ors are subject to the Investment Canada Act that cannot be overridden by a FIPA agreement. Further, it is specifically written into the Canada-China FIPA agreement that decisions made under the Investment Canada Act cannot be subject to the dispute settlement provisions in the FIPA agreement. I will be happy to share the exact language directly from the FIPA agreement on this or any point to confirm this information to anyone who is interested. With respect to the parliamentary process on a FIPA agreement, these agreements must be tabled in the House of Commons for 21 sitting days of Parliament. During this time the opposition, through opposition day debates, has the opportunity to debate a FIPA agreement or any other issue. To date the opposition parties have decided not to debate this particular FIPA agreement. I should also add that this particular FIPA agreement was brought forward and reviewed by the Standing Committee on International Trade at request of parliamentarians. Why pursue a FIPA Agreement with China? Canadian exports to China have increased more than 27 per cent since 2010 and as a result, China is now Canada’s third largest export merchandise market. Over the past five years Canada’s exports to China have increased by 77 per cent. This past year British Columbia actually exported more lumber to China than to

the United States. Several large scale employers and even some small business operations in Okanagan-Coquihalla are now exporting into the Asian marketplace. As China has one of the fastest growing economies in the World there are increasing opportunities for Canadian companies to grow and expand into China. However agreements like FIPA are necessary to protect Canadian investments and business dealings in foreign countries such as China to ensure our interests are protected by due process. I spoke to an owner of an industrial company several weeks ago as I wanted to know if he saw China as a potential market for his Canadian made specialty equipment for mining. He said that he thought it was a big opportunity but due to what he viewed as a lack of patent and investment protection, he wasn’t interested at this time. Currently Canada has an excellent reputation internationally as a safe place to do business and invest, largely due to our stable way of life and commitment to the rule of law. If we are to expect Canadian companies to grow and expand on their expertise, government must build that certainty so we and future generations can benefit from increased investment and expanded trade. I appreciate that there are always those individuals who oppose trade, however it should not in my view be overlooked that we have employers throughout Okanagan-Coquihalla who depend on access to foreign markets that help provide jobs locally and support our regional economy.

Busy hockey club

The Summerland McDonalds Atom House team was busy this past weekend with two games. They beat West Kelowna but lost to Penticton.

Committed volunteers make events happen As you read this article I am actually flying into Australia to play in the Pan Pacific Games. The Pan Pacific Games is Australia’s largest sporting event with over 10,000 athletes from 20 countries playing 40 different sports. It is a Masters event (over 35 years of age) and I play fastball at the competition. For an event of this magnitude to happen someone had to have a vision and the volunteer time to make it happen. Here in Summerland we are coming up to the Festival of Lights, a type of special event I had never seen until I moved to Summerland. All the work done by Christine Petkau, Sophia Jackson and Shannon Brilz of SCEDT and all their volunteers

Leisure Times

Dale MacDonald should be applauded as the throngs of people hit the streets for lights, entertainment, food and fireworks on Friday, Nov. 30. Even on a smaller scale I observed the Pro D Day skate and swim with 100 children. The party is organized by Ed Casavant, and it can only make you smile watching all the children having so much fun. Our annual Halloween Haunt, with

McDonald’s Atoms House working hard The Summerland McDonald’s Atom House team was busy this past weekend with two games. For Saturday’s game against West Kelowna, in spite of a strong effort capped by two goals from Zachary Boerboom, two by Craig Preston and one by Sarah Paul, the team found themselves in a hole down seven goals to five at the end of the second period. Backed by strong defending they roared back in the third period to score seven goals and take the victory 12 to eight. Kai Reid led the attack with four goals in the third period,

while Zachary Boerboom, Levi Doerksen and Cameron Budney added a goal each. On Sunday the Atom House team faced strong opposition from Penticton, losing 12 to two. The team tried their best but were limited to single goals by  Zach Boerboom and Brett Cerutti. Seth Doan  was awarded the McDonald’s Golden Jersey for his hard work during Sunday’s game. A big thank you goes to the Atom House sponsor for new jerseys and socks and a thank you goes to the coaches: Chris Pagliocchini, Darren McWatters and Clayton Budney.

“Celebrating Lives Together�

250-494-7752

1907-2012 Roy was born at Lula Junction, Georgia, USA December 12 1907. His father was a Mining engineer who moved the family frequently. When Roy was 2 yrs old, the Bertrams moved to Walhachin, where father “Bert� was hired to survey the new settlement. In the early 20s they homesteaded at Black Pines , north of Kamloops. Roy took his limited schooling in Vernon and later joined a B.C Light Horse unit with his brother John and trained in Vernon. From here he travelled to the coast and became a faller in the logging industry at Mission B.C. In 1935 he started to work on tug boats and to continue to educate himself getting his diesel mechanics ticket and his masters papers . When the 2nd war came he enlisted and became a second officer in the Army Service Corp supplying the coastal defence unit along the B.C. Coast. Before long he was given his own ship and took part in towing a burning ammunition ship (the Greenhill Park) out of Vancouver harbour and on another occasion assisting the U.S. Coast guard in getting the burning C.N.R. Vessel, Prince George, away from the dock in Ketchican Alaska. After the war he bought his own boat and went commercial fishing with his life long friend Bob Breaks. Roy and his wife Olive fished together for a number of years and then started to look for a drier climate and a place where he could have a horse as he loved to ride. In 1964 they, settled in Garnet Valley in Summerland. Roy continued to fish to support the new orchard and Olive stayed home to look after the gardens. Except for a short spell in Parksville Vancouver Island the Bertrams spent the rest of their lives in Summerland where they were very involved with the Sportsmans Club and the Riding Club. Olive passed away in 1998 and Roy continued to live in their home on Thompson road until 2010 when he moved into Parkside Assisted Living on Brown street in Summerland, where he was welcomed and well cared for until this September when he moved to Dr. Andrew Pavillion. He passed away October 22, peacefully, 6 weeks before his 105th birthday. He was an amazing man who led an amazing life and saw this world change in ways we can never imagine. When he was born in 1907, there were only Jules Verne dreams of space travel, wireless communication, and undersea exploration. Today, children have never lived in a world without a microwave and can’t remember what a VCR is. He lived through world wars, the Great Depression, and watched a lot of his friends pass, from old age, twenty to thirty years ago. He had his driver’s licence until 6 years ago, and lived in his house until he was over 100; Up until a few weeks ago he had a lovely private room where he could walk down to breakfast and have his shot of Scotch after dinner. He made every moment count and, really, what more is there? He will be missed by his nieces and nephews: Pat (Gerry) Bowes, Gary (Lucy ) Smythe, John (Julie) Bertram, Janet (Larry ) Burbidge, Tom( Cindy) Patterson, Norm(Judy) Patterson, and David Patterson. His many Great nieces and nephews, as well as great- great nieces and nephews who had the good fortune to know him, and hear him tell some of his stories. Roy specifically asked for no service; he felt his big “Celebration of Life� was at Janet and Larry’s, when we all joined for his 100th birthday. He did say, though, that he hoped his many good friends would “lift a glass� when they met, and remember him then. ----- A Long Life, Well Lived-----Condolences may be sent to the family through providencefuneralhomes.com.

Guaranteed Lowest Prices *Applies only to our major supermarket competitors’ print advertisements (i.e. flyer, newspaper). We will match the competitor’s advertised price only during the effective date of the competitor’s print advertisement.

We Match Prices! *Look for the symbol in store. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES (note that our major supermarket competitors may not). Due to the fact that product is ordered prior to the time of our Ad Match checks, quantities may be limited. We match select items in our major supermarket competitors’ flyers throughout the week. Major supermarket competitors are determined solely by us based on a number of factors which can vary by store location. We match identical items (defined as same brand, size, and attributes) and for fresh produce, meat and bakery, we match a comparable item (as determined solely by us).
