Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

A

lot has changed since Yassine Ghomari first walked on the grounds of UBC Okanagan back in the fall of 2007. In addition to the construction of dozens of new buildings all across the Kelowna-based campus, the 23-yearold from Vancouver has watched student enrollment nearly double in just five years to more than 8,000. As a player with the Heat men’s basketball team, Ghomari has also witnessed firsthand the evolution and growth of varsity sports on campus and how Heat athletics are, at least in some way, helping to define UBC Okanagan’s identity. See story A3.

CLOSE-UP

Athletics presence growing at UBCO from A1 This fall, four Heat teams—men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball—are entering their second full season of Canadian Interuniversity Sport competition, the highest level of postsecondary athletics in the country. “Of course, the school itself has changed a lot,” said Ghomari, who first suited up for the Okanagan Lakers of the BCCAA in 2007-08. “When you’re an athlete you see another side of it, too. Athletics has grown so much, the funding, the exposure it gets has really gone up. “We’re getting better facilities all the time, we’re getting bigger and better recruits, our coaching is very good. It’s exciting for us to be a part of the CIS and to see what’s happening here on campus.” The first year of Canada West competition created its share of challenges for the UBCO athletics department but

athletics director Rob Johnson has been encouraged by the way Heat coaches and players responded to the considerable step up from the college level. All four teams enjoyed a degree of success on the court, particularly the Heat men’s volleyball squad which made the Canada West playoffs on its first try. But as much as there was emphasis on wins and losses in year one, Johnson said proving UBC Okanagan would be a viable and respected Canada West member for the long-term future was the primary focus. “It was a big learning curve for us on all fronts, for the student athletes and the competition level they saw, and from an administrative aspect, it was all new,” Johnson said. “But so far, so good I would say. I thought as a group we did a pretty good job, from the conduct of our student athletes, to our coaches who showed strong leadership. “A culture has been

created where expectations are clearly understood of how we want people representing UBCO, and that’s the direction we want to keep moving in.” If all goes as planned, Heat varsity athletics will officially become a permanent fixture in the Canada West conference by next spring. The program’s threeyear probationary period ends with a vote in May 2013, and with 75 per cent approval from Canada West membership, the UBCO would attain fulltime member status. UBCO has also applied for admittance for both Heat soccer programs and if successful, the men’s and women’s teams would join the Canada West conference in the fall of 2014. Although Canada West competition is still a relatively new concept at UBCO, it hasn’t taken long for athletes, students and the community at large to realize just how significant a move it has been for Heat programs.

DALE ABBEY/HEAT ATHLETICS

VOLLEYBALL player Jim Bell (left) is one of many top-level recruits UBC Okanagan Heat has been able to attract since joining the Canada West conference. Women’s volleyball coach Steve Manuel said the impact of CIS sports on the local campus can’t be overestimated. “There’s much more of a feeling now that (the CIS) is the real deal,

there’s a real buzz about what’s happening here,” said Manuel, in his 12th season as coach of the women’s volleyball team. “There’s real a recognition factor and respect that comes with being in

Canada West. “It’s exciting and we’re getting known not just on campus, but in the community, in the province and across Western Canada. “We’re making a

name for ourselves in a hurry and people are taking notice. “For lack of a better term, we’re in the bigtime now.”

Plans to partner Okanagan Sun football club and UBCO remain on hold With UBC Okanagan basketball and volleyball teams already competing in Canada West and the soccer programs not far behind, many in the valley are wondering when university football might make its debut in Kelowna. While UBCO remains interested in partnering with the Okanagan Sun and the potential of adding football in

the future, athletic director Rob Johnson said any such plans are, for now, on hold. “I think the institution and the Okanagan Sun are still very intrigued by the possibilities,” said Johnson. “There would be lots of positives that could come from that kind of arrangement. But it’s something we can’t really consider until we become full mem-

bers in Canada West.” Johnson said UBC Okanagan isn’t allowed to apply for any new sports until after the institution earns full membership from the Canada West conference. Canada West will hold a vote on UBCO’s status in May 2013. “The earliest we could get approval for any new sport is May 2014,” Johnson said. “The Sun have told us

they’d need two full years from approval to get ready for the transition.” The Sun organization has already made a commitment to sharing the operating costs with UBC Okanagan should such a move happen. Because of the large numbers of players and staff required, football is typically the most expensive program for a university to run.

“Yes, it’s a step we want to take but not before we’re in a position to make it work. You don’t start something that significant without a solid foundation. We’re going to do our best to make sure that’s the case,” Johnson said. “This will ultimately be a decision for the UBC Okanagan executive at some point in the future.” —Warren Henderson

UBCO’s appeal makes waves along the recruiting trail Athletics from A3 For UBCO studentathletes, such as volleyball’s Kendra Wayling, competing in the big-time against the country’s best athletes, has required a whole new level of commitment and dedication. Even with a full load of classes piled on top, the fourth-year player from Castelgar isn’t complaining. “We take things a little more seriously, we all have to work harder at it than we did in the college league,” Wayling said. “Every match is huge for us, you feel like there’s something at stake every time you play. You sacrifice a lot more, working out, trying to balance school and all the volleyball and stuff, so you have to be committed and organized. But it’s so much fun. I couldn’t ask for anything more.” Since its move to Canada West, UBC Okanagan is now going headto-head with many of

the bigger, established schools when it comes to competing for and recruiting the top available talent in Canada. As members of the BCCAA, that wasn’t often the case. “It seemed to take a while to get some traction, but once we got into Canada West, recruiting became that much easier,” said Johnson. “Athletes who have looked at UBC, Alberta, or Victoria in the past are also looking at us now. “Those high-level athletes who wouldn’t give us a second thought before are now seeing us as a viable option. “For me as an administrator, that’s a beautiful thing.” What also brings a smile to Johnson’s face is the popularity of Heat apparel, as the student body and the community have clearly climbed board with the brand of UBCO athletics. Sales of clothing bearing the Heat logo are

more popular than ever. “You really see people buying into it, they want to know where they can get Heat apparel,” Rob Johnson said. “The kids with our junior Heat basketball program are really excited to wear it. It’s great that people are connecting with the name and logo.” While much of the focus the last several years has been preparing for and ensuring the success and viability of the Heat’s Canada West varsity squads, Johnson said the athletic department is in the process of widening its scope. “The whole application process and the first year of Canada West took a lot of time and energy,” Johnson said. “Now we can work on organizing things a little better, reflect on what we’ve done and see what’s the best way to function. “Now we really want to focus on campus recreation and facilities, to

We see UBCO as being a valuable community hub.” Part of that initiative includes a new fitness centre currently under construction beside the UBCO gymnasium. Named The Hangar,

the majority of the $4.1million project has been financed by Kelowna’s Lapointe family, on behalf of Kelowna Flightcraft. The two-floor, 9,000 square-foot facility features a wide range of fitness equipment and studio space, and should be completed by the spring

of 2013. Another of Rob Johnson’s visions is the potential addition of a wellness and recreation centre to the existing gymnasium. The blueprint for the big-box style structure calls for a new three-court gymnasium, research facilities and a sports medicine clinic.

“The biggest need in the Okanagan is more court space and more artificial fields and this would address some that need,” said Johnson, who hopes to see the facility added within five years. “It’s another way for us to connect to the community.” whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Lucas admitted weather has hindered growers in the east this year. Kelowna grower Angie Ritz placed third for the Ambrosia variety in the New Varieties division, as well as second for Aurora Golden Gala. Gurinder Saran of Kelowna came third for the Nicola variety, and Narinder and Surinder Gosal of Kelowna topped the other varieties class with their Nicolas.

STAFF REPORTER

B.C. apples were the apple of the judge’s eye at this year’s national apple competition at the 90th annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto this week. Not only did local fruits take top place in a number of variety categories, they also brought home the grand and reserve champion awards in each of the three divisions, commercial varieties, heritage varieties and new varieties. B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association general manager Glen Lucas said he believes this year’s results are the best Okanagan apples have placed since the national contest was resurrected four years ago, after a 40-year hiatus. “We even won in the Honeycrisp category, which eastern growers grow very well,� he commented. “We took the fair by storm this year.�

A Kelowna family is upset with the B.C. Ministry of Health’s recent decision to deny funding for treatment of a brainthreatening disorder. Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a rare disorder that occurs when the body is unable to process phenylalanine, an essential amino acid found in the protein of most foods.

Ten-year-old Connor Laing, of Kelowna, was diagnosed with the disease at birth through B.C.’s newborn screening program. “We have to watch everything he eats and have a very regimented intake,” said Connor’s mother, Lisa Laing. Currently there are 150 patients living with PKU in B.C. The first and only pharmaceutical treatment for PKU is a drug called Kuvan. According to Canadian PKU and Allied Disorders Inc. president John Adams, the drug works for approximately 40 per cent of PKU patients by reducing blood phenylalanine levels when taken in conjunction with a phenylalanine-restrict-

ed diet. Since Connor started taking Kuvan his blood phenylalanine levels have been cut in half. The favourable results have allowed Connor to eat more natural foods. “It’s been a drastic change,” said Lisa. “Simply put, the poison that’s running through his body is cut in half— that’s with him eating two or three times as much natural protein as he was taking before.” The B.C. Ministry of Health completed a review of Kuvan this summer and decided it would not fund the drug for PKU patients “because of unclear benefits and high drug costs.” Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the annual cost of medi-

cation can be as high as $180,000 annually per patient. But according to Adams, that number is “highly misleading.” He suggested the average annual cost would be more along the lines of $70,000 per patient. The province has also opted not to fund medical food, which helps PKU patients manage their blood phenylalanine levels. “The ministry of health doesn’t fund food,” said MacDiarmid. “There are a lot of other conditions that require a special diet and we’ve made the decision that’s something that wouldn’t be covered under the health ministry.” Adams said B.C. is the only provincial health

City in Action Council received the results of the Alternate Approval Process (AAP) for the Electrical Utility Restructuring Opportunity. A total of 91 signatures under the AAP were received, well below the 9,484 signatures (10 per cent of the voting population) required to halt the sale of electrical utility assets to FortisBC. Fortis will now submit an application to the British Columbia Utilities Commission for approval to buy the utility.

Results of the Alternative Approval Process related to funding for the downtown parkades were received by Council. This Alternative Approval Process was to seek citizen approval to borrow $15 million to expand the Library parkade and construct a new parkade on the Memorial Arena property. The number of petitioners opposed to the borrowing was 165, or less than 0.2 per cent of electors. This is below the 10 per cent of electors (9,484) needed to defeat the borrowing bylaw, so the project will proceed.

His parents, Lisa and Miles, are frustrated the provincial government won’t help those with the disorder by providing funding for the drug, Kuvan, the first and only pharmaceutical treatment for his ailment. ministry in Canada that doesn’t cover the medical food for PKU patients. Although Kuvan has been approved by Health Canada, MacDiarmid said the decision to not provide funding for the drug was based on direction from the Common Drug Review and Drug Benefit Council.

The Common Drug Review is administered by the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health and analyzes how well a drug works when compared to similar drugs that treat the same condition and whether the drug provides value for money. The Drug Benefit

Council considers whether the drug is good value for B.C. residents, whether PharmaCare already covers an equally beneficial drug and looks at available information on the clinical effect of the drug. See Funding A7

NATURAL FACTS PRP and Stem Cells

All the parts of your body, including your eyes, skin, bones and muscles all developed from stem cells. Stem cells have the ability to grow into any part of your body, and in effect regenerate parts of your body with â&#x20AC;&#x153;newâ&#x20AC;? cells. Until only a few years ago it was thought that stem cells in an adult were only available from other people, speciďŹ cally taken from the blood in an umbilical cord at a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth, or from an aborted fetus. Stem cell treatments were thought to be impractical because of this. Platelets are naturally present in our blood and are well known as part of the system in our bodies to make blood clots that are necessary to heal wounds and other injuries.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cost eďŹ&#x20AC;ective way of activating your dormant stem cells to create real healing and long lasting pain relief.

Platelets also contain platelet derived growth factors. We now know that we all have stem cells throughout our bodies that are sitting dormant. We also now know that when we take platelets from our own blood, in a preparation known as platelet rich plasma (PRP), we can use them to activate our own stem cells. I ďŹ rst heard about PRP at the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine (AAOM) annual convention in April of 2010. Presentations on PRP treatments reported great results in resolving difďŹ cult to heal injuries. The next year, at the 2011 AAOM convention I attended ďŹ ve separate presentations on PRP. They covered everything from research results to the

practical aspects of delivering PRP treatments to patients. In June of 2011 I completed PRP training and started to offer PRP treatments to patients. PRP treatments are the most effective treatments I have found to regenerate and heal joint and tendon injuries in the shoulder, back, knees, hips and ankles. PRP treatments have been effective for athletes and tradesmen, men and women, and active people of all ages. If you want to heal a new or an older injury PRP may be just what you need.

Time to rezone Cedar Park

To the editor: Re: Cedar Park Last year, before the almost wholesale change of the (Kelowna) city council and mayor, there was a large controversy brewing. I am referring to the Cedar Park controversy. At issue was the very heart of what Kelowna is and stands for, not just now, but for future generations to come. The stakes could not of been higher. On one side was the staff of the city of Kelowna. In their minds, the seven publicly owned rental properties along the 2000- to 3000block of Abbott Street should be rezoned and turned into a mutli-story, view blocking, limited access commercial building combined with some public walking paths and limited greenspace. In the minds of the vast majority of Kelownians, however, their choice could not have been made more clear. They wanted a large park on the lake. They wanted a place with a view. They wanted a place to take their kids, and a place where their kids

The things we can learn from nature’s genius

I

’ve always been more interested in organisms that can move on their own than in stationary plants. But when I canoe or hike along the edge of lakes or oceans and see trees that seem to be growing out of rock faces, I am blown away. How do they do it? Think about a seed. Once it lands, it’s stuck. It can’t move to find better soil, moisture or sunlight. It’s able to create every part of itself to grow and reproduce with the help of air, water and sun. After it sprouts and sends out roots and leaves, other species want to eat it. It can’t run, hide or fight back. It’s a wonder trees are able to survive at all, yet they can flourish and live for hundreds of years. They’re evolution-

ary wonders that have developed a bag of chemical tricks to ward off predators, infections, storms and fires, and ways to communicate and even share scarce reDavid sources. In Ecuador’s Suzuki Yasuni National Park, I saw a tree that is reputed to “walk”! We have much to learn by studying nature and taking the time to tease out its secrets. Biomimicry, a word coined by biologist and writer Janine Benyus, means to copy nature. It’s a science that asks “What does nature do?” instead of “What’s it for?”—the question usually posed by human endeavour. Since life originated some 3.9-billion years ago, organisms have been confronted with strikingly similar chal-

SCIENCE MATTERS

lenges: where to find nourishment, how to keep from being eaten, what to do when infected by a parasite or disease, what to do with bodily wastes, and how to reproduce and ensure offspring survive. Over billions of years and in billions of species, the solutions to these problems have been myriad, often subtle—even surprising—but always highly informative. Almost all species that have existed are estimated to have gone extinct within an average of a few million years. Humans are an infant species, a mere 150,000 years old. But, armed with a massive brain, we’ve not only survived, we’ve used our wits to adapt to and flourish in habitats as varied as deserts, Arctic tundra, tropical rainforests, wetlands and high mountain ranges. We’ve accelerated the rate of cultural evolution far beyond the speed of biological or genetic change.

Technological creativity has been critical to our success. From the time we first picked up a stick or rock to get at something or defend ourselves, we’ve devised tools like bows and arrows, knives and axes, and needles and pottery. Those often took decades, centuries or millennia to hone and improve. Now, new technology comes along weekly. These powerful innovations affect our lives, and the way we live and think of ourselves. When I did my first television series in 1962, the medium was denigrated as the “boob tube”. We said it jokingly, but it reflected an anxiety about the negative aspects of this new instrument. Over and over, we have become enamoured with the immediate benefits of technological innovation without rec-

▼ CANADA-CHINA

Time to speak out against trade deal To the editor: Perhaps my letter is adding to the dissent expressed by thousands of others who decry this FIPA (trade agreement with China) and the government that has pushed very secretly for its execution. Under FIPA, Chinese companies can sue Canadian governments, feder-

al, provincial, territorial, or municipal, in secret tribunals outside the Canadian court system if those governments do anything that would limit the companies’ profits in Canada. This fact was verified by the minister of international trade in a technical briefing to (Green Party leader) Elizabeth May on Oct. 24.

She added this to the public record when adspeaking in the House of Commons. In stark contrast to NAFTA, where cancellation could be achieved in six months, the FIPA would lock Canada in to the proposed agreement for 15 years, a one-sided agreement if ever there was one.

It is to be hoped that an eleventh-hour postponement can be achieved in recognition of the strong public outcry such that a more equitable agreement can be drafted. Your readers can contact their MP and their mayor to express their view on this important departure from parliamentary procedure such as

the drafting of this agreement, that has hardly seen the light of day as it progressed towards execution. Time is of the essence, people. For those who are not up to snuff on this dangerous situation, there is always Google. Ronald W. Haslock, West Kelowna

During my 11 years as a Kelowna resident, I have never seen the populace so adamant about having their wishes heard. t At public meetings, there was overwhelming topposition to the commercialization of this precious klakefront public property. Support for the city proposed project amongst the populace was virtually non-existent, perhaps

in the two or three per cent range. But what did the council at the time do? Did it do the right thing and rezone the space as park? No. For some reason I can’t fathom, they passed the whole thing along to the new council. And what has the new council done about it in the 10 months since? Nothing. Not a peep. Councillors seem to be keeping their heads down and not wanting to

cause trouble. In this one instance, I don’t think they could be making a bigger mistake. By rezoning this property as park, for now and for future generations, they can make the bold statement that our most precious resource is not for sale to the highest bidder, that they know the true value of things, that they can hear what the people are telling them in no uncertain terms. They can show that as

the council that was elected by this populace they will follow the obvious wishes of those who elected them. This isn’t something to let drag on. This isn’t something about which to wait and see. This is something to get done. Right now. The entire area is on hold. Nobody is doing anything. Progress has stopped. Small rental houses sit on large oversized properties waiting. The city desperately needs

more density and attractive apartments and condos in that area, but everybody is waiting. Nothing gets done. Show some foresight, council. Show some grit. Stand up for what’s right and follow the wishes of the residents. That’s what you’re there for. Cal Condy, Kelowna (Editor’s note: Cal Condy ran unsuccessfully for mayor last year.)

NEWS ▼ ASHLEE HYATT TRIAL

Arguments at fatal Peachland teen party played out in court Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Slain teenager Ashlee Hyatt’s character was scrutinized during the cross-examination of a witness who was by her side after she was fatally wounded. When speaking to the young woman, who had held a sweater to Hyatt’s neck as she bled out from a knife wound, defence lawyer Donna Turko asked questions seemingly aimed at getting a fix on the 16-year-old Hyatt’s activities. “Maybe I’m just old school…” she started, directing the witness to a statement given to police June. 3, 2010, the morning after the fatal attack. In that transcript, the witness told police that Hyatt had made out with several other boys over the course of an undetermined period of time, and some of them were there that night. “You didn’t call her a slut, but… what are you implying about your good friend (Hyatt)?” said Turko. The witness said she wasn’t implying anything, just stating facts, and indicated she took umbrage at the suggestion she was. It wasn’t the first time that defence homed in on the personal lives of the

Ashlee Hyatt teens. There were a number of intersecting teenage love triangles that seemed to have been an issue that night, Turko suggested several times. The fatal altercation, however, took place June 2, 2010, after the accused, then 16, kissed one boy, while her boyfriend was nearby. Hyatt could be heard after that calling her a “skank” in a raised voice, said witness Clive Sutherland. Sutherland took the stand Thursday afternoon, and testified he went to the teen party with his wife as a favour to a friend. The mother of the two teens hosting the party was at work that night and their gathering was going on in her Peachland house, unbeknownst to her. As such, Sutherland and his wife went to clear the scene. “My wife told every-

one that they had to leave,” he said. “Within a few minutes most left, then seven, eight, or nine were still left in the house. They were all prepared to leave… they just needed some time.” Sutherland said his wife then decided to work on a plan that would allow her to stay the night at the house, so the party wouldn’t migrate back. During that time, he heard repeated arguing on the deck. “It was always between the same people,” he said, noting it was the “girl who passed away” and the accused. “(Hyatt) was calling the other girl a skank… three, four or five times,” he said. He couldn’t remember if the accused said anything, but surmised she had. “Did the argument cause you concern?” asked Crown counsel Murray Kaay. “Not overly. It was a little uncomfortable, but not over the top,” Sutherland replied. At some point as the teenage drama moved along, the Sutherlands decided that Clive would go get the family’s second car, drop it off, and then his wife would stay the night and make sure the house stayed safe.

He was just leaving when he heard yelling and screaming. “Two girls were in the middle of the road wrestling, and another girl was lying on the shoulder, while two people were standing above her… there were two more in the distance,” he said. Of the girls struggling in the middle of the road, one had a knife and the other had her by the wrists. “One girl said, ‘Drop the knife, you stabbed my friend,’” said Sutherland. He identified the teen speaking as the “one without the knife,” which was a point of contention for defence lawyer Turko. She later pointed out that it was deviation from what was said in the pretrial, as Sutherland never offered the fact that it was the “girl without the knife” who said that “drop the knife” in the past. Regardless, Sutherland said he went over to the teens, who he couldn’t identify because they had hair in their face, and grabbed the wrist of the girl with the knife. “Then I grabbed the knife with my other hand,” he said, noting he folded the four-inch blade up and stuck it in his pocket. The teenage girls kept fighting, as he went to Hyatt. “I recognized her as the girl on the deck, who was accusing the other girl of… being a skank, or whatever,” he said. “She was motionless, breaking very lightly, and pale.” A gash to the right side of her neck was visible, as was a pool of blood. Next to the wound a balled up shirt lay from where a teen had earlier tried to help stopped the flow. “I applied as much pressure as I could to stop it from bleeding,” he said, noting there were two teenagers, a girl and a boy, standing next to her. Later, when the police arrived, he handed the blade to them. The trial continues.

Building a lasagne garden L asagne gardening is a relatively cheap and easy way to make a new raised bed of good soil. The process consists of layering the same materials you might use in a compost, in the place where you want to create the new bed. It’s also an easy way to get rid of some lawn. Although most often made to create a vegetable bed, the lasagne gar-

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele den can be used to grow almost anything. First, choose your spot. If you plan to grow vegetables or plants requiring sun, make sure

there will be at least six hours, daily, of full sun during in the growing season. It is best to stay away from trees. In my experience, most have wide reaching root systems that always make a beeline for good soil and extra moisture. Also avoid making the garden on top of morning glory weed as it, too, will thrive in the good soil. To make it on top of

lawn, first cut the grass as short as possible. Then soak the ground and cover it with an overlapping layer of wet cardboard. Appliance boxes work well. The cardboard helps smother the lawn and draws earthworms. They like cellulose and help break up the turf while eating the cardboard. Fall is a good time to make the bed as there are lots of materials around. Begin with a layer

THIS LASAGNE GARDEN built in spring included layers of straw, alternated with rotted leaves, mushroom manure, garden and kitchen waste, soil and compost, yielding a bountiful crop of squash the first year and lush greens in the following years. of chunky material such as frost killed vegetation from your gardens or used animal bedding (straw and manure mixture). Then add layers of green/wet/nitrogen materials such as compost, manure, grass clippings, kitchen waste and soil, alternated with brown/dry/ carbon materials such as shredded leaves, straw and frost killed plants. Make sure each layer is very wet before you put the next layer on. The ‘green’ layers can be two to four inches thick and the ‘brown’ layers, dou-

ble that. To further enhance nutrients in the bed, supplements such as bone meal, wood ashes, and worm castings can be sprinkled over upper layers. Keep repeating alternating layers until the bed is about two feet high. Leave it to rot down over winter. To speed the process, you can cover the bed with black plastic and weight down the edges. In spring the bed will be about half the height. You can plant through holes in the plastic for such things as squash or remove the plastic and put

a wooden or other framework around the bed to contain it before planting. A lasagne garden can be made at any time of year and planted immediately. More detail can be found in books on lasagne gardening by Patricia Lanza. Three are available at the library.

Up to MPs now to take steps to conserve B.C.’s salmon I

t won’t satisfy the most radical environmentalists, nor those on the opposite end of the spectrum, but it’s a measured, thoughtful, firm set of recommendations to save the salmon. Commissioner Bruce Cohen made 75 recommendations to improve the future sustainability of the Fraser River salmon fishery, following more than two years of hearings and nearly a thousand submissions by the public, in a 1,191-page report. Although he stopped short of calling for removal of all net-pen fish farms in the Discovery Islands off the coast of B.C., he did recommend a freeze on salmon farm production in the area until scientific work is completed into the impacts of such aquatic farms on migrating wild stocks. That must be completed before Sept. 30, 2020, and if by then the Department of Fisheries and Oceans can’t confidently say the risk of serious harm to wild stocks is minimal, then all net-pen salmon farms should be prohibited there. If it’s discovered before then that the salmon farms pose more than a minimal risk, the existing farms should be removed immediately, he wrote. He also wrote of his

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves concerns about recent changes to the environmental assessment process and to the Fisheries Act in the federal omnibus budget bill that raised so much controversy. Immediately, he recommended the fisheries minister should get his ministry out of the business of promoting salmon farming, in order that its mandate to conserve salmon stocks not be in conflict with that role. A new position should be established in the ministry to implement the Wild Salmon Policy,

which was released seven years ago to maintain biodiversity in Pacific salmon species and conserve stocks. That new associate regional director-general should publish a detailed plan for implementing the policy by Mar. 31, 2013, he recommended. He also made recommendations regarding funding, fishing and licensing, collection of fish health data from salmon farms and he recommended specific research be done to establish the likelihood of the farms contributing to the decline in Fraser River sockeye stocks. Rather than a single cause to the problem of declining stocks, Cohen listed a perfect storm of issues plaguing the iconic B.C. fish. To read the entire,

three-volume report, go to www.cohencommission.ca. If the federal government implements all the recommendations of the Cohen Commission inquiry into the decline of sockeye salmon in the Fraser River, I’m confident the state of those stocks would improve markedly over time, if we’re not too late. It may require some pressure from those of us who care about conservation of this precious stock to help our MPs make the decision to implement all his recommendations. So I suggest you drop a quick note to your local MP and to the fisheries minister making that suggestion—just so they know it’s an issue that’s even important to those of us living far from the Fraser River. Unfortunately, at the moment, the fisheries portfolio is being ‘caretaken’ by minister for national revenue Gail Shea, since the recently-appointed minister, Keith Ashfield, who hails from New Brunswick, just suffered a heart attack.

Cleaning up the old basket or planter is a simple matter of cutting off the plant material to the soil surface with hand pruners leaving the root system intact. One of the advantages of using a previously planted container is the remaining root mass provides a good anchor to hold the greens firmly in place. One of the enjoyable activities when creating your work of art is searching out the materials to use. Don’t hesitate to think out of the box when doing this because quite often something as simple as a twig will look great when combined with other materials. The main thing is to gather as much variety as possible to have a nice assorted pallet to choose from once you get started. There is a tendency to lose focus if the process is

Look for a variety of textures and colours taking larger pieces if possible; it’s easy to cut these into smaller pieces rather than trying to make a small piece larger. Gathering these materials can often be accomplished in one’s own yard. Sometimes, a hunting expedition around the neighbourhood is in order but before you start pruning the neighbour’s trees and shrubs it is imperative that permission is given. Stick to large plants that won’t miss a snippet or two.

You can start just about anywhere but don’t think too much about it or it just seems to get too complicated. I believe starting with a crown at the top perhaps with some golden juniper makes sense. The key to avoiding a busy look is to have something repeating throughout the piece such as Oregon grape.

Some colourful and rigid blue spruce can be cut into smaller pieces and used as fillers. Work your way downward to give it the cascading look of a hanging basket using rhododendron and hemlock foliage. Always be careful your enthusiasm doesn’t take over to the point of sticking in more and more materials. Take frequent short breaks to re-group your thoughts. Keep in mind an important creed of the accomplished jazz mu-

Place some pyracantha clusters here and there and finish it off with a few sprigs of curly willow or filbert branches. This is a project that is easy, inexpensive and fun and I’m sure it will rival the pleasure you have each year decorating the Christmas tree.

Job fair can help plan your career Countries around the world are climbing on board the airline industry, and that’s turning into an unprecedented number of career opportunities in aviation, according to both industry and educational experts. In June, Kelowna Flightcraft landed a significant long-term structural maintenance contract with WestJet that sent the company into a hiring frenzy, picking up students from Okanagan College’s Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) programs. “Over the last 12 months, Flightcraft has hired 60 new maintenance staff in Kelowna to support our growing business,” said Grant Stevens, director of human resources for Kelowna Flightcraft. “In fact, we have committed to hiring the majority of this year’s graduating AME-Structural class to add to our 30 AME apprentices already on staff,” he said. The same is true for the airline industry, which

is looking for pilots worldwide as more countries in Asia, most significantly China, climb on board. “It used to take 10 to 15 years to get in with the major airlines, now it’s only taking three to four to become a first officer,” said Marc Vanderaegen, Southern Interior Flight Centre director with Okanagan College. Both Vanderaegen and Kelowna Flightcraft will be among those chatting with the public about opportunities at this Sunday’s Career Fair, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College in Kelowna. Vanderaegen said there’s no question what’s happening here is an accurate reflection of this global phenomenon. A 2010 study from the Seattle-based plane manufacturer Boeing projected this would come to pass, and only soar. At the time, it estimated world demand at 466,650 pilots and 596,500 maintenance per-

sonnel from 2010 to 2029, with many of those personnel needed in Asia, particularly China. A follow-up Boeing study in 2012 backed that trend, and Vanderaegen is seeing the results. “One of our grads is now a pilot with Cathay Pacific in Hong Kong. They’re all over the place,” he said. “Canadian pilots are in high demand even overseas, because of the quality of training that Transport Canada insists upon here,” Vanderaegen said.

“And our program here offers unparalleled training in Canada, due to the real-world blend of diverse geography and varying weather.” The same is true for the aircraft maintenance engineering programs, said Dale Keegstra, who teaches AME at the college. “Graduates from the AME programs are experiencing the best job market prospects in recent years,” he said. “The retirement of the baby boomer generation, combined with the expansion of the industry, has created a large list of apprentice job postings on a host of industry websites.” Bottom line, if students train in the Okanagan, it can take them anywhere. The aircraft industry is just one of more than 100 career options the public can learn more about at the 31st annual Career fair.

Chiefs eye another successful season

Kevin Parnell

STAFF REPORTER

When the Kelowna Chiefs went all the way to the KIJHL final last year, they did it with an offensive team that outscored its opponents most nights. If they are going to go all the way again this year, it appears it will be on the strength of a deep defensive core that is experienced and talented. For soon-to-be 20-year-old Kelowna native Braeden Hikichi, an offensive defenceman, another long run in the playoffs would be the perfect way to close out a junior hockey career that started in Nelson but will end in his hometown. “That run last year was just incredible,” said Hikichi, in his second season with the Chiefs after playing two years in Nelson. “I’d say experience is one of the most important attributes in the KIJHL. For the guys that got the experience last year it’s going to be so helpful this year.”

The Chiefs have 10 players back from that memorable run to the league final last year that ended just short of a KIJHL championship when the Chiefs lost to Beaver Valley. Included in those returning players is a defensive core that is deeper than most and something that the team is relying on this year. The Chiefs enter this weekend having won three games in a row and allowing just a single goal against in each of those wins. “We set a team goal to have the lowest goals against average in the league,” said Hikichi. “Last year we could get away with allowing three or four goals against because our offense was so good but this year we are more focussed on defense.” Chiefs coach Ken Andrusiak agrees with that assessment and has been preaching defense first this season. It’s not something that every team preaches but for the Chiefs it has been a focus since

day one this year. “That’s the kind of team we are trying to build here,” said Andrusiak. “It’s tough to convince this age group that defense comes first but if you can get your players to buy-in to that philosophy then you are looking pretty good.” A smooth skating, power play quarterback, Hikichi spent two years with the Nelson Leafs in the KIJHL before begin acquired by the Chiefs in a trade prior to last season. The six-foot, 200-pound blueliner had tryouts in the BCHL along the way but has found a home in the KIJHL and with the Chiefs and this year is taking business courses at Okanagan College while playing out his final year of junior eligibility. He says playing in his hometown has been a great fit. “When I heard they got the team in Kelowna I was pretty excited,” said Hikichi. “Getting to play at home in front of friends

and family is cool. It’s a fun league. It’s the perfect league for me. When I played junior A it was a little too serious for me. The KIJHL is a lot of fun and everyone I know who has played in the league has enjoyed it.” Hikichi won’t rule out continuing to play after his junior eligibility this year but like most players whose time in junior is coming to an end, he prefers to focus on the season at hand and trying to get back to the league final and win the championship that the Chiefs got so close to last season. “The way the team is shaping up right now, I have a lot of faith in the team this year,” he said. “I think that we absolutely have a shot to win it all this year.” The Chiefs have a three game weekend coming up this weekend as they host Princeton tonight (Friday), play in Kamloops on Saturday and return to Kelowna to host Summerland on Sunday.

WHL figures show how league supports player education With the fledgling Canadian Hockey League Player’s Association making waves and talking about unionizing junior hockey players, the Western Hockey League has released figures showing how it supports its players when it comes to education. WHL Commissioner Ron Robison announced this week that a total of 301 WHL graduate players have been awarded

WHL Scholarships for the 2012-13 academic year including scholarships to eight former members of the Kelowna Rockets. The WHL Scholarship recipients are enrolled as full-time students in 68 different post-secondary institutions throughout North America at CIS schools and other post secondary institutions. “The WHL takes great pride in providing our graduate players with

the most comprehensive hockey scholarship program available in North America today,” said WHL Commissioner Ron Robison. “The WHL Scholarship provides the flexibility for our graduate players to enroll in any university, college, technical school or any other postsecondary career enhancing program of their choice.” Players are awarded

a year of post secondary education for each season they play in the WHL, no matter the number of games. The scholarship includes tuition, textbooks and compulsory fees, to a post-secondary institution of their choice. When it comes to schools, the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon) boasts 34 WHL graduates enrolled in fulltime studies while 28 for-

mer WHL players are registered at the University of Manitoba (Winnipeg). The University of Alberta (Edmonton) has 26 WHL graduates who are attending full time classes.

Royal University (Calgary) has 12 WHL graduates, and the University of Regina has 11 WHL graduates enrolled in full time studies. Administered centrally by the WHL Office, the WHL Scholarship is solely funded by the member Clubs of the WHL. This season WHL Clubs will contribute close to $2 million to graduates utilizing the WHL Scholarship. Here are the former

High school swimmers make a splash Local high school swimmers carried over their impressive seasons with individual swim clubs and then represented their schools at the Okanagan Regional High School swim meet in Kelowna last weekend. There were 192 swimmers attending the high school meet from local schools Okanagan Mission (OKM), Kelowna Secondary (KSS), George Elliot (GESS) and Mount Boucherie (MBSS), along with 17 other schools from the Okanagan region. The OKM swim team comprised of 45 swimmers had an outstanding meet and took first place with 528.5 points in the combined team score, they also topped the men’s

and women’s overall point categories. The weekend was highlighted by many best times and records being broken by local swimmers. There was a lot of great relay swims at the event including OKM’s Dominique Frost, Mary Koehle, Emalie Schueler and Ealin Ran who broke a record set in 1985 in the 400m freestyle B division relay. The team took two seconds off of the previous record. The girls relay team also placed first in the 200m medley B division relay and second in the 200m frreestyle B division relay. Mount Boucherie’s team of Lauren Fau-

chon, Kassidie Cornell, Liz Aguiar and Danielle Douglas joined OKM breaking a 2008 record in the 200m medley open division relay. The KSS girls open relay team also beat thesame 200m medley meet record, coming second with help from Lacey Falkingham, Christina Russo, Jen Short and Skye Kinnear. Zachary Torres from OKM smashed three records in the 50m free, 100m free and 50m fly in the para division. Top two relay finishes were also swam by OKM, KSS and Mount Boucherie in the 200m medley/ freestyle open div relay for both boys and girls. The top three swims in each event qualified for a

place at the B.C. School Sports provincial aquatic championships, to be held Nov. 16 and 17 in Richmond. Individuals with qualifying swims included Aaron Obedkoff (OKM), Danielle Douglas (MBSS), Christina Russo (KSS), Cam Feil (KSS), Craig Mathieson (MBSS), Garrison Frost (OKM), Genevieve Lutsch (KSS), Josh Zakala (OKM), Denzel Mohammed (KSS), Mary Koehle (OKM), Ealin Ran (OKM), Jen Short (KSS), Kassidie Cornell (MBSS), Lacey Falkingham (KSS), Zachary Torres (OKM), Matthew Tran (KSS), Scott Andreen (MBSS), Sam McDonald (KSS), Ian

Hey, NHLers. What about us fans?

D

ear NHL player: As you hang out in the Okanagan killing time before you return to work, I hope you realize what you are doing to hockey and to our game. Have you taken the time between workouts to stop and think about regular working folks, many of whom hold down two jobs just to be able to live in the Okanagan and support their families? For these folks it’s a constant battle to make ends meet. Pay cheque to pay cheque we go, in and out of debt, grinding it out, dragging our kids to the hockey rink and back. We claw together money for food every week so we can give our kids the best things in life like kraft dinner and peanut butter sandwiches. Once your parents dragged you to the rink at 5 a.m., raced you home to get ready for school and then went off to work in the real world, where the average male income is about $56,000 a year, according to Stats Can. Does that salary figure mean anything to you? We are the silent majority. We are the people that cram 50 hours into every day, just trying to get our daily duties done by 7 p.m. when low and behold, we used to be able to escape to the couch for a couple hours to watch a hockey game on TV and enjoy your talents. Have you thought about us at all? The people who spend every cent they have so their kids can chase the same dream you once did? The people that, in a million years, couldn’t afford to actually go see one of your games live and in person. What about the folks that are way worse off than us? The people that ask us for a toonie every time we hit up Tim Horton’s on the way to the kids’ game? Sometimes we find some change to give. Other times we have nothing left. We envy you with your ability and your pay cheques. Some of us want our kids to get where you are: To not worry about money and bills, not worry about debt or how we will stretch to get to the next payday. We used to think of hockey players as heros, warriors, gladiators, good guys. And I’m sure you

NO BOUNDARIES

Kevin Parnell are all that. But now you are also more than that. You’ve changed the game for the worse. You’re greedy. You don’t want to split revenue 50-50. You don’t want to scale back a salary from 5 million to 4 million. How about working a job where if you actually get a raise it’s two per cent per year; less than the increase in the cost of living. And in case you skipped out of math in school, two per cent of F– –all equals, roughly, F– –all. You and your bosses are killing our love of the game. Your greed and your fight over money is taking the love and turning it to hate. You used to be our heros. You used to thrill us with skill that we wished we had when we skated at midnight and drank beer in the parking lot. We used to love you guys. But now you’ve sucked the life out of the game. You’re not heros. You are businessmen, looking for the most money you can get. Ya the owners suck too. But they were never our heros. They were the businessmen. Now we are starting to side with them. Do you see what you have done? Sure, most of us will come back. We are Canadians after all and there is something ingrained in us. We love hockey. This lockout will become a thing of the past and you can go on making more money than most, even if you are a fourth liner. But you’ve lost something. You’ve lost our hearts. You’re not a symbol of grace and athleticism and heart and effort. When our kids ask us about hockey players, what do you want us to say? Should we tell them that you play for the love of the game? Or should we tell them you play for money? It’s a question that needs no answer. You’ve answered it by your actions. You are in it for the money. And that sucks. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ COFFEE HOUSE

New business separates fact from (pulp) fiction Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Thirty-five years ago, when Max Sloan started collecting pulp fiction, he knew he would one day open a store. That he could have imagined it would become the one-in-a-million find it is, well that might have been foreseeable too. Sloan is, after all, a geologist by trade and the unreal collection of pulp fiction, classic hardcovers, magazines and collectibles he has crammed into what was previously the home of Kelowna radio station SilkFm at Lawrence Avenue and Pandosy Street is the kind of gem only someone who has travelled the world in search of treasure might create. “I don’t know of another place like it in the Pacific Northwest,” said Sloan, noting he’s already been visited by book dealers. With poster finds from Brussels and original copies of Anne of Green Gables, the shop, bannered as the Pulp Fiction Coffee House, has something for everyone. In fact, it’s really four separate businesses in one. In addition to the coffee house, the cavernous space, divided into little nooks, contains Robbie Rare Books, named after Sloan and his wife Gloria’s standard poodle Robbie, Britannia Antiques and Art Deco Nouveau, and boasts a grand schematic ranging from posters for hipsters to Hemingway for bookworms. Sloan has the Hardy Boys and a lamp that depicts Napoleon’s retreat that was made for the Paris Exhibition and found in a Lebanon, Tennessee shop. He’s got titles like The Destroyer and The Wolf of Wall Street in the hallway behind the ’50’s diner swivel seats and tiny coke bottles. What he doesn’t have is any memorabilia focused on John Travolta, Bruce Willis or Uma Thurman. “People keep thinking it’s named for Pulp Fiction the movie, but it’s not. Pulp is actually a term for

cheap paper,” said Sloan. During prohibition, printing on pulp paper for everything from paperbacks to posters produced a plethora of quick and

dirty material tales, rife with with heady crime dramas playing out in the streets. Sloan says he simply loves the art of it all. “I’m not a big reader. I like the aesthetic,” he explained as he stood looking into the glass encased bookcase of collector’s paperback pulp. Whether you’re looking for a $500 copy of Jim

Thompson’s The Transgressor or a chance to hear a live poetry reading, Sloan says he just wants people to come in and hang out. “I really enjoy young people,” he said. “So we want the university kids to come in, get a poster for their dorm room or sit and read. But we know we need the well-heeled middle-aged set for the antiques and a few of the grey-hairs too.” As for retirement, he says working his passion is about as much of a break as he needs.

New Wallflowers album proves to be a hit-and-miss affair

THE WALLFLOWERS: GLAD ALL OVER (COLUMBIA)

SOUNDING OFF

Critics and old fans of Jakob Dylan seem to be pleased that he has put aside his solo career, which saw the release of two albums that got a middling reception, to reunite his rock band The Wallflowers. Glad All Over is the band’s first new studio album in seven years, an attempt to recapture some of the magic of yesteryear, Dylan & Co. have worked a couple of songs with ex-Clash member Mick Jones. With Jones, The Wallflowers experiment with a little of the reggae-rock of The Clash on Sandinista and play with a bit of Jones funk-dub with his later group Big Audio Dynamite. In fact, the two best songs on Glad

Bruce Mitchell All Over are the ones with Jones, where they have scored a minor hit with Reboot The Mission that name drops Joe Strummer, while Misfits And Lovers sounds like The Clash with Bruce Springsteen and Bruce Cockburn on board. After this, Glad All Over is a hit-and-miss affair. There are just too many overly wordy and incomprehensible songs that ramble around and never seem to completely pique the interest. There is a hint of garage rock with a dash of The Black Keys on The

ANTS? 250-826-8430

Devils Waltz, but other than this solid tune Dylan sounds like he is busy working and playing with sufficient energy but with only so-so results. There is too much chaff in the wheat and it is looking like The Wallflowers will never enjoy a bigger hit than their signature song One Headlight of fifteen years ago. C+

PLACIDO DOMINGO: SONGS (SONY) He is better known for arias and opera rather than popular songs but Placido Domingo has taken a stab at several contemporary pop songs on his new studio release. Songs is perhaps too perfunctory a title but it makes its case with these 14 well-known tunes

where many are recorded with other big stars as duets. The biggest selling point here is most likely Domingo’s duet with Josh Groban on Sous le Ciel de Paris that is a romantic song to and about the cityof-lights, while Domingo simply overpowers Susan Boyle on their rendering of From This Moment On, the Shania Twain hit. A better duet comes with Harry Connick on the old Tin Pan Alley gem Time After Time, while Chris Botti blows his ever-reliable horn on Besame Mucho. The best type cast song here is Domingo’s solo take of Parle Pui Piano Theme From The Godfather (Domingo now looks like that senior from the beer commercial about being the worlds most interesting guy) while the worst type

cast song here is The Girl From Ipanema where Domingo can’t sing in a wistful whisper. Meanwhile Katherine Jenkins is equal to the task of soaring through a solid take of Come What May from Moulin Rouge. These sort of pop to pop-era albums have remained the rage in quasi classical circles for a couple of decades now and Domingo proves he is no slouch on his version of Songs. Note that this package seems to be aimed more for the European markets with most songs sung in Italian, French and Spanish. B-

Some of these Church renditions sound live off the studio floor and sound the better and most natural for it. Church is also smart to hedge his bets for a better paycheck with a cool Yuletide song, Christmas Is Love, as that season approaches and a couple of originals that fit in well with the genius that was in Sam Cooke’s songs.

But unfortunately Cooke was shot and killed by a hotel worker under mysterious circumstances not understood or explained today, although theories abound. Cooke was only in his mid-30s and had a huge career ahead of him due to his supreme good looks, enormous talent and his ability to crossover to the pop charts. Jarvis Church offers

Happy birthday to Canadian icon

I

t’s not too often one gets to wish someone a happy 90th birthday, and it’s especially meaningful when that character is one of your dearest friends. Howie Meeker is much more than just a good buddy. In many ways he is also a mentor, brother, father, grandfather and hero. Not to mention, a true Canadian icon. I had the unique and distinct pleasure of hanging out almost daily with the ‘golly-gee’ guy for nearly five years during the 1990s when Howie and I worked on two books together, including his biography, Golly Gee It’s Me. It was a wonderful and life altering experience. To say he is a class act is an understatement. Many readers remember Meeker as the voice and face of Hockey Night in Canada and TSN for literally decades of broadcasting. Yet there are many other impressive attributes about the man. The most significant is recently winning the prestigious Order of Canada, one of our country’s highest civilian honours which recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to community, and service to the nation. No man who better personifies the word professional. I saw him at the best and worst of times and my respect never faded, once. Howard (Howie) William Meeker was born Nov. 4, 1923, in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario, and he learned early the value of hard work and integrity. He was already a promising young junior hockey player in Stratford when WW II broke out. Like many, Howie accepted the challenge to make a difference. As far as Meeker is concerned, anything and everything he has done in life since one day in the spring of 1944 has been a bonus. On that day a grenade blew up between his legs —knocking him into the air, out of the army, and certainly out of contention as a potential candidate for the NHL. In fact, after removing more than 60 pieces of lead and Bakelite from his ankles, legs, groin and testicles, medical doctors told Howie he’d be lucky to walk again, let alone skate. Those Allied Forces doctors,

HODGE like many NHL PODGE scouts and future

opponents, did not know the burning tenacity within ‘Hurricane Howie.’ Meeker thrived Charlie on beating the odds, Hodge on overcoming obstacles and challenges. It was that same gusto and initiative that not only earned him the 1946-47 NHL rookie of the year award (Calder Trophy) and two rookie records, but also his first Stanley Cup. When his first NHL season was complete, Meeker had scored 27 goals, including an amazing fivegoal affair against Chicago, and 45 points. The 27-goal record survived until Bernie Geoffrion scored 30 in his 1952 Calder winning season. However, Meeker’s five-goal game performance still stands today. Ranger rookie Don Murdoch tied the one-game output in 1976 but no one has eclipsed it. Not a bad rookie year for a guy who was never supposed to skate again. “When I made the National Hockey League that first season I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. I was the happiest man in Canada. Absolutely nothing beat that feeling those first few games wearing a Maple Leaf sweater on my chest,” Meeker recalled. Howie also beat another promising Red Wing rookie for Frank Calder’s legacy mug, a strapping 17-year old named Gordie Howe. The lanky forward from Floral, Sask., saw limited action, but caught plenty of attention and everyone knew he was going to be a superb player. Howie beating Gordie for the Calder Trophy is one of the alltime great hockey trivia answers, and even Meeker grimaces at the comparisons.“That had to be the greatest miscarriage of hockey justice ever. Actually the comparisons were not even fair and back then no one saw it that way either. I was a 24-year old man just back from war; he was a 17-year old gangly kid. You knew he was going to be a star some day, but he was just barely out of diapers. “Shucks, in the years to come I couldn’t have carried Gordie’s equipment bag.” While playing for the Leafs he also was elected and served as an

MP (Conservative for WaterlooSouth). During the eight seasons he played in the league, he garnered four Stanley Cup rings and some very memorable moments. After leaving the NHL, he immediately coached Pittsburgh of the American Hockey League (the Leaf farm team) for two successful seasons and then spent one dismal season as coach of his beloved Leafs. The following spring he was named GM of the Leafs but was canned a few months later after punching Stafford Smythe (Conn’s kid) in the nose. “It was my best punch in hockey,” he chuckled. Meeker moved to the Maritimes and went to work coaching senior and junior hockey, and eventually ran the entire Avalon Minor Hockey system in St. John’s, Nfld. He also earned a living working regular radio and TV sports shows, traveled the entire ‘Rock’ as a sales representative and supplier for various companies including Samsonite luggage, Winchester Guns and Ammunition and Brunswick Bowling, and he also began his own hockey schools. In 1968, Meeker was invited to sit in as a guest colour commentator for a Hockey Night in Canada broadcast in Montreal and wound up staying behind the cameras of professional hockey broadcasting for 30 years. His efforts were finally acknowledged in 1998 when he was named to the Hockey Hall of Fame as the recipient of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for broadcast excellence. Perhaps Howie’s greatest legacy to hockey, and to life, has been his relentless work with youth in teaching the game of hockey. He instructed hockey players across North America in the fundamentals of the games through his famous hockey schools for more than 30 years, and spent countless hours involved in fund raising and charity events—particularly those involving youth and the Special Olympics. “I’m a lucky man in many ways and hockey has been a very big part of that. Everything I have I largely owe to the game. Howie received his Order of Canada for, “his contributions to hockey as a broadcaster and coach to players across the nation.” Being a class act is simply icing on the cake.

Eliminating the stigma behind dementia Kelowna families living with the impact of dementia are also coping with stigma, according to a new study. Nearly three-quarters of people with dementia, and 64 per cent of family caregivers, believe there are negative associations for those diagnosed with dementia, says Alzheimer’s Disease International. Another alarming statistic revealed in a recent ADI report was 40 per cent of people with dementia say they have been avoided or treated differently. “The report puts a spotlight on stigma as a real issue that impacts individuals and families who are living with Alzheimer’s disease,” said Michelle Hallgren, the local support and education coordinator for Kelowna and the North Central Okanagan with the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “We want residents to know that there is hope and there are ways for overcoming stigma so that we can

all better support families on the dementia journey and work with decision-makers to ensure that the rights of people living with dementia and their family caregivers are recognized.” The society offers education programs and support groups for both the individual who has been diagnosed with a form of dementia and their caregivers. A free local support and information group serves as a forum for sharing practical tips and strategies for coping with the disease. It helps create support and friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia. For more information contact Michelle Hallgren at 250-860-3035 or mhallgren@alzheimerbc.org.

Tourism labour strategy looks to keep pace with an expanding B.C. industry For some, a dream job would be a vacation planner—for themselves! Vacationing in B.C. can take so many forms that it would indeed be a full-time job. The tourism and hospitality industry is an extremely diverse industry with over 400 different occupations, including occupations that lead to longer-term careers, as well as those that fit well for those seeking parttime work, like students or older workers who are not yet ready to retire. British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the B.C. tourism industry’s human resource association. The Tourism Labour Market Strategy, released in the spring of 2012 by go2, sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train the workers needed to keep pace with the growth projected for the industry.

Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province, adding 44,220 more jobs to the provincial workforce by 2020. The other approximately 57,000 openings are due to replacements (i.e. retirements). “The labour strategy co-ordinated by go2 is a key pillar of industry growth in the province. Without it, we simply wouldn’t have the skilled workers in place to deliver the visitor experience throughout B.C.,” said Lana Denoni, chair of the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia. British Columbia’s location, bordered by the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west, makes it unique within Canada. Our mountain and coastal scenery, opportunities for summer sailing, winter skiing, and other activities such as fishing or sightseeing in coastal or inland waters or experiencing our vibrant cities all

Lana Denoni make us a world-class destination. Tourism helps to diversify our economy and also brings new community services to permanent residents. B.C.’s tourism and hospitality industry is now the single largest “primary resource industry” in the province, generating an annual real GDP ($2002) of more than $6.4 billion in 2010, ahead of forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. Tourism and hospital-

ity generated $13.4 billion in annual revenue in 2010. Overall, between 2004 and 2010, industry revenues grew by a total of 25.5 per cent, representing an average annual growth rate of 4.2 per cent. The provincial government’s Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will top $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. The fastest growing sectors for tourism job growth over the next decade are expected to be recreation and entertainment and travel services. There are an estimated 17,943 tourism-related businesses across the province, employing about 260,000 workers, or 10.8 per cent of B.C.’s total labour force of 2.4 million people. More than 80 per cent of tourism’s new job openings are projected to come in Food and Beverage Services (43,410 openings), Recreation and Entertain-

CONTRIBUTED

B.C. TOURISM Minister Pat Bell (left) with Arlene Keiss, CEO of go2, and Ian Powell, go2 board chair. ment (20,530 openings) and the Accommodation sector (18,920 openings). “After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand,” said Arlene Keis, chief executive officer of go2. “Labour shortages are already being felt

in places like Northern B.C., the Thompson Okanagan and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province. “The tourism industry often provides people with their important first job and sets them on

their career path,” continued Keis. “Tourism is also the largest employer of youth, with one in four British Columbians under the age of 24 working in the industry.” www.go2hr.ca/careerstourism www.go2hr.ca/strategy

Ponce recalls 19th century colonialism in Puerto Rico Suzanne Van Atten CONTRIBUTOR

PONCE, Puerto Rico—There was a time, not that long ago, when visitors to Puerto Rico’s second-largest city were cautioned not to stray from the central plaza after dark. Many of Ponce’s ornate 19th-century buildings were vacant and falling to pieces, and the poorly lit streets were made even shadier by some of the characters

who roamed them looking for handouts—or worse. What a difference a few years make. Ponce has undergone a dramatic recovery that has restored its status as La Perla del Sur (The Pearl of the South) and made it a destination that rivals San Juan in culture and history. Throughout the 19th century, Ponce was a thriving port town, attracting European and Latin American plantation owners, rum makers and

merchants. Their wealth helped create a colonial cityscape of shady plazas and stunning architectural confections, combining rococo, neoclassical and Spanish revival styles. All that changed after the U.S. gained control of Puerto Rico in 1898 and centralized shipping operations in San Juan. A downturn in the local sugar and coffee industries followed . Thus began Ponce’s long, slow slump. But during the 1990s,

a multi-million-dollar revitalization project was undertaken and the results today are dramatic. Historic homes have been restored and freshly painted in pastel shades of yellow, blue and green. Plazas have been spruced up and new parks built. Downtown is thick with pedestrians patronizing new shops and restaurants. A trolley transports tourists to points of interest around town. The heart of Ponce is

Plaza de las Delicias, a large, shady square containing the French neoclassical Catedral de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe and the striking black-and-red striped pavilion, Parque de Bombas, originally an exhibit hall for the town’s muchballyhooed 1882 Exposition-Fair and now a museum devoted to the city’s firefighters. On one corner of Plaza de las Delicias, a colonial structure built in 1882

has been transformed into a full-service hotel by Ramada International. On another corner is the entrance to Paseo Atocha, a pedestrian street mall chockablock with shops selling clothing, housewares and electronics . The sidewalk is lined with street vendors beneath brightly colored umbrellas selling fresh flowers, lottery tickets and sundry tchotchkes. At the end of Paseo Atocha, just a few blocks

from the plaza, is Nueva Plaza de Mercado Isabel II, a recently restored indoor marketplace built in 1863. Here, vendors sell fresh produce, meats and seafood. There are also several very good food stalls serving fresh fruit frappes, empanadas (fried meat or cheese turnovers) and heaping plates of savory rice and beans. In the evenings, the

Many museums illustrate city’s rich history Ponce from A25 plaza thrums with activity. On any given night, you might find a band playing salsa music, a street preacher saving souls or artists selling their wares. A testament to Ponce’s rich history and deep cultural roots are the city’s many museums, devoted to music, history and art. But the 800-pound gorilla in town is Museo de Arte de Ponce. Recently renovated and expanded to the tune of $30 million, the institution boasts an astonishing collection of 3,000-plus pieces of European and North American

artwork spanning from the 14th century to the present. The museum specializes in Italian baroque, British pre-Raphaelite and Puerto Rican artworks. In the heady days of Ponce’s prime, as many as 50 plantations operated in the area. A reminder of its 19th-century agrarian roots can be found 15 miles north in the foothills of the Cordillera Central. Tucked into the lush tropical forest is Hacienda Buena Vista, a restored coffee plantation established in 1833. The buildings and machinery were abandoned for decades until 1984, when the Con-

servation Trust of Puerto Rico took it over and restored them to their 19th century glory. Today, the Trust gives guided tours of the property and grounds. In many ways, Ponce is the antithesis of San Juan, the island’s more popular destination. San Juan is a cosmopolitan city with flashy nightclubs, pricey restaurants and a fast-paced, “Americanized” vibe. Ponce’s charms unfold more slowly, recalling another era when elegance and civility were prized traits, and strolling along the promenade of the central plaza was the perfect

▼ REFRESH

Hyundai Genesis Coupe gets a huge power boost for 2013 Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s the mantra of some automobile companies, but not Hyundai. The upstart South Korean automaker makes a habit of one-upping the competition by constantly upgrading its lineup. Case in point is the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which bowed in 2009 as a 2010 model and now gets a significant refresh for 2013. Hyundai’s re-do of the car for 2013 is much more than the nip here and a tuck there that other manufacturers might call a refresh. To start with, the 2013 Genesis Coupe gets a serious power boost. Thanks in part to direct injection technology, the 3.8-litre Lambda DOHC V6 engine in my GT tester gains 42 horsepower to 348 and 29 lb/ft of torque to 295 that will propel the car from 0-100 km in the low five-second range. The power boost amounts to increases of 14 and 11 per cent respectively.

Add to that a more aggressive exterior design with new front fascia, grille, headlights, fog lights and hood design and you end up with a Genesis Coupe that has significant improvements for 2013. Other new features for 2013 are retuned, low-velocity control suspension dampers, electroluminescent gauge cluster with information display, telescopic steering wheel added to the tilt function, power lumber adjustments for the driver’s seat and redesigned centre stack. All this comes at a price, though, as my GT tester with six-speed manual sells for $36,999 or $38,799 with a sixspeed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Meanwhile, the base 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged engine is also significantly more powerful with a new twinscroll turbocharger and a larger, more thermally efficient intercooler. That engine now makes 274 hp (up from 210) on premium fuel, although anti-knock technology allows you to run

it on regular fuel if desired. The base model Genesis Coupe 2.0 with manual transmission is priced at $26,499. A track-ready 2.0 T R-Spec model is priced at $28,799 and includes a bunch of high-performance equipment like Brembo brakes, 19-inch wheels with summer tires, limited slip differential and a stiffer suspension. This model finished a strong third in the SportPerformance under $50K category in the recent Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) 2013 Car of the Year testing. The Genesis finished a scant three points behind the Ford Focus ST in testing and posted a 0-100 km/h time of 6.9 seconds and topped the 10-car field in braking with a 100-0 km/h distance of 37.9 m. A 2.0T Premium model upgrades the interior of the standard 2.0T and adds items like touchscreen navigation system, 360-watt Infinity audio system, leather seats with two-stage front heaters, and power sunroof.

CONTRIBUTED

THE HYUNDAI GENESIS COUPE, in 3.8 GT form here, is an affordable performance car aimed at the driving enthusiast. The big news is a boost in power from 306 to 348 hp for the 3.8-litre engine and 210 to 274 hp for the 2.0T. This is priced at $29,899 for the six-speed manual and $31,699 for the eight-

speed automatic. Fuel economy is better all-round in the new

Outside, 18- and 19inch alloy wheels on the Genesis Coupe are all new for this year as are LED taillights. Even with the more muscular look, the car’s proportions are unchanged with short front and rear overhangs, creating a wedge-like profile with broad shoulders and a wide stance. The biggest improvement I found in the new model is in the ride comfortã I know I couldn’t live with the outgoing Genesis Coupe on a daily basis with its extremely harsh ride. Spring, damper and bushing ratings have all been recalibrated this time around for better road feel, more precise body motion control and best of all, more ride comfort. The 3.8 GT we tested came with a track-tuned suspension that has firmer front and rear spring rates, and even with the firmer suspension, ride comfort shows a huge improvement. The Genesis Coupe was already a great car, but with the improvements we’ve outlined above, Hyundai has made it even better for 2013. There’s no standing still for Hyundai.

MOTORING ▼ NISSAN

Sentra grows in size, still sips fuel CONTRIBUTOR

NAPA, Ca.— Always a stable seller, Nissan’s Sentra has trailed the likes of Civic, Mazda3 and Corolla but that’s about to tchange. Nissan is currently in the midst of launching a whole slew of new products starting with the Pathfinder reviewed on these pages and now the seventh-generation, 2013 Sentra. Nissan makes it easy for buyers to choose with one engine, two transmissions and four trim levels. The power plant is Nissan’s familiar 1.8-litre inline four-cylinder driving the front wheels producing 130 hp and 128 lb/ ft of torque through a sixspeed manual (on the base S and SV) or “next generration” Xtronic CVT. Pricing on the four rtrims starts with the tentry-level S M6/CVT at $14,848/$17,548, the SV M6/CVT at $17,548/$18,848, the SR CVT at $19,948 and topping out with the SL CVT at $22,998. Nissan was one of the early adopters of CVTs and remains the leading proponent of the system. The CVT used on the Sentra is equipped with a sub-planetary gear that contributes to improved fuel efficiency at high speeds and better response at lower speeds. Fuel economy with the CVT is rated at 6.6 L/100 km city, 4.9L/100 km highway and a claimed fclass-leading 5.8L/100 km combined all on regutlar. The manual is rated at 7.5/5.5L/100 km city/ highway. Note the CVT is better on gas than the manual, which Nissan points to as proof they are on the right track with the CVT. Nissan starting phasing out automatics 20 years ago and to date has installed more than nine million CVTs in their vehicles. Another factor is weight, which is reduced by 150 lb over the outgoing model plus a rather slippery 0.29 drag coefficient, which is surprising due to its largish size for a compact. With the CVT you can select either “Eco” or “Sport” or just leave it in “Normal” using rocker switches on the dash to the left of the steering wheel. Select Eco and it changes the valve timing and

transmission mapping for improved fuel economy. Go to Sport and the reverse is true with a noticeable pickup in power. Like the 2013 Pathfinder reviewed on these pages, I was lucky enough to have a Sentra to myself for a day with no restriction on where to go. I grabbed a SV CVT (which will probably be the volume model) and headed west towards the coast from my hotel at the north end of Napa Valley in California. On the high-speed Highway 101, I went to Sport to get on the freeway and the engine responded well and without the “rubber banding” that so dogged early CVTs. On the highway at the posted 65 mph limit, I pushed the Eco button and the engine immediately dropped 300 rpm like I had put on the brakes slightly. Throttle response was sluggish compared to Sport but the tach proved less fuel was being consumed. Over more than 300 miles and some five hours of driving my average fuel consumption in a US-spec car was (US) 39.7 mpg or 5.9L/100 km. Now I did most of the driving in Eco on roads that were primarily 35-55

mph but the fuel number, considering this was real world, impressed me. The 2013 Sentra is slightly longer and lower than the 2012 model, but looks bigger. It has been restyled with the twin arrow grille treatment now being used by both Nissan and Infiniti, overall it is a pleasant design but not bold. Inside it’s another story with available leather and maple wood trim but it’s the instruments that stand out for their clarity and simplicity. The main gauges are Nissan’s Fine Vision electroluminescent design that are backlit even in daylight, providing a highquality look that is also easy to read thanks also to the large numbers for aging eyes. But it is in the back seat where the Sentra shines with legroom of 949.96 mm and that’s with the front seats all the way back. The rear seat is a standard 60/40 split folding design, offering versatile access to the 428 litres (15.1 cu ft) of trunk space, which is 57 litres larger than the 2012 Sentra. The SV model I drove was fitted with the NissanConnect system with Navigation that includes a Hands-Free Text Messa-

ging Assistant. It not only reads incoming text messages and allows drivers to reply without taking their hands off of the steering wheel, but also gives real-time fuel prices, flight times and weather updates. It also allows Streaming Audio via Bluetooth and a largish 5.8-inch touch-screen monitor. I never text anytime to anybody, but I did use the Navi system extensively. I know the highways and byways of Napa/Sonoma pretty well and this was a chance to go down a number of roads I’d seen before but was afraid of getting lost on, as the rolling hills in this area look relatively the same in all directions.

Born in Mission B.C., Stan passed away unexpectedly at the age of 53 on October 20th 2012. He was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, stepfather, grandfather and friend. A professional truck driver and oil field worker, he also ran a custom motorcycle shop for many years. Motorcycles and old cars were his true passion, and he could often be seen riding his beloved Harley everywhere, or simply spending hours restoring, polishing, tweaking, or just plain talking about them. He loved everything about them, including the history, sights, and sounds that made them tick. He was a fun loving, caring man who brought joy to so many lives and so much laughter in many hearts. His friends and family take forward a lot of happy memories and our lives are richer for having known him. A memorial service will be held November 3, 2012.

He will always be missed, but never forgotten by those whose lives he has touched.

BESSIE GNYP 1921 - 2012 It is with deep sadness that the Gnyp family announces the passing of our Mother, Grandmother and Greatgrandmother, Bessie Gnyp, on Wednesday, October 24, in Kelowna, BC. Bessie was born on February 14, on the family farm near Aaron Saskatchewan. Living on a farm meant that Bessie developed an excellent work ethic from a very young age, and this tireless devotion to work and to help others, continued her entire life. Bessie left home at an early age and had several jobs in Regina during WW2. She met William (Bill) Gnyp in Rhein Saskatchewan, and they were married in Ontario, on October 31, 1945. Following their marriage, they moved to Yorkton Saskatchewan, where they purchased a farm and raised 6 children. In 1974, Bessie and Bill moved to Kelowna to begin their well deserved ‘retirement’. Bessie will be remembered fondly for her love and commitment to her family, her gardening, her preserves and her natural ability to organize and cater meals for a variety of Ukrainian events held at the Church Hall. Bessie was always thinking and doing for others. Bessie was predeceased by her sisters, Nellie Hartfield, Mary Roy; her brother John; her husband, Bill and her son-in-law, Norm MacDonald. Bessie is survived by her 6 children: Elmer (Jean); Judy; Eleanor; Janice; Ben (Marie) and Della; 6 grandchildren (Brian, Neil, Daniel, Megan, Lucy and Will) as well as 3 great grandchildren (Natalie, Reid and Sienna). Bessie was a longtime resident in the Hollywood area of Rutland, and had many friends there. The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to all the caring staff at Three Links Manor. By request, there will be no funeral. Instead, a special celebration of Bessie’s life will take place at a later date.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Our thoughts are ever with you Though you have passed away. And those who loved you dearly Are thinking of you today. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, And only God can tell us why. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come to Me.â&#x20AC;? A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands now rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Nothing can ever take away The love a heart holds dear. Fond memories linger every day Remembrance keeps you near Your presence we miss, Your memory we treasure, Loving you always, forgetting you never.

In Flanders Fields by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago, We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

Baby boomers have an impact on the housing market

Parents pick up fiscal slack Rebecca Burstein CONTRIBUTOR

When young home buyers come to family for financial help, purchasing property can turn into a tug-of-war. “The dependency of the younger generation on their parents has increased in recent years,” says Mary Sblendorio, a real estate agent on the W Network reality series My House Your Money, a show that documents prospective home buyers that turn to their extended family members for financial help. “In the past, parents have always tried to help their kids, if financially capable. Now, it seems the parents are expected to ‘help’—more like ‘finance’—their chil-

dren’s dream homes. “The rationale for children is that they have been accustomed to living a wealthy lifestyle and the thought of downsizing or downgrading is implausible.” And since both parties have a say in the purchase, real estate agents are working harder to ensure properties appeal to varying age groups. As more parents accompany their adult children to viewings, homes must be strategically staged to please everyone involved. This boils all the way down to the paint colour on the walls. Having been through the process previously, parents tend to be much more critical in home purchasing and are a bigger

Mixing family and financing is never simple and when it’s a case of generational home buying, conflict is inevitable. The reality series, My House, Your Money on W Network chronicles the family dynamic that young home buyers are facing in the current market.

When it comes down to it, winning this war is easier than imagined for the new home buyers, says real estate agent Helene Baguley. “Most parents or extended family members, even if they are providing the down payment, want to see their kids happy at all costs.”

W OF PRIME INTEREST

Mortgage playing field continuing to shift Changes made to Canada’s mortgage lending industry this year continue to see a further tightening of the qualification rules. For consumers, that impact is felt significantly in trying to borrow against the equity value of your home. The maximum equity refinance level has dropped to 80 per cent of the value of our properties. And home equity lines of credit have been reduced to 65 per cent of the property value. Meanwhile, the maximum amortization on high ratio mortgages dropped from 30 to 25 years. Large discounts from the prime rate on variable rate mortgages has largely disappeared. Many lenders have backed

away from investment properties. We are also seeing more bank and credit unions registering a mortgage as a collateral charge, a running account, or simply having a line of credit placed in behind. A collateral charge is a different way to secure a home loan from a standard mortgage. The terms of a collateral mortgage are outlined in a loan agreement that’s not registered as a standard mortgage agreement would be. Effectively, collateral charges allow lenders to change the interest rate and/or loan more money to qualified borrowers after closing, without involving a lawyer. That saves the borrower legal costs if he/she needs to withdraw

equity from their home. At first glance, the opportunity under this arrangement to access more money in the next few years without extra cost may be appealing. However, the downside comes at renewal time. For consumers who want to keep their options open at maturity, this is an unfriendly change. That customer will now have to pay legal fees to switch lenders. People switch lenders for many reasons, not the least of which is better rates or features. In the past, most every mortgage at renewal could be switched for free. With the real estate mar-

ket not seeing the gains from the past and the rules tightening as to withdrawing your equity, you may not have the extra equity in the home for refinancing and this change in registration leaves you at the mercy of possible higher posted interest rates when time for renewal of your mortgage. Of Prime Interest is contributed by local mortgage brokers Arlyne Wilson, 250-862-1818, awilson@lenderapproved.ca; Kristin Rosdal, 250-878-3007, kristin@ kelownahomemortgages.ca; Trish Balaberde, 250-470-8324, trishb@kelownahomemortgages. ca; and Darwyn Sloat, 250-7184117, dsloat@kelownahomemortgages.ca.

Over the past several years, Canada’s real estate market has experienced a coast-to-coast cool down of sales activity and a correction in housing prices. But what has yet to be brought into the equation for the future housing forecast is the effect that baby boomers will have on the market. The baby boomer generation refers to the estimated 10 million people who were born between the years of 1946 and 1964. It has been reported toREAL ESTATE day that there are about six RUNDOWN million baby boomers between the ages of 48 and 66 years that live in Canada, and that by 2036, that number will be in the vicinity of 25 per cent of Ceinwen Canada’s population. Morgan It is not unusual to find that most homeowners nearing retirement begin to think about downsizing from a single-family property to something more suitable to their needs. And for empty nesters, perhaps their two-storey family home has become too large or having less yard work has become a greater desire. Perhaps this demographic scenario will create more sales activity in a currently saturated condominium market, as con…CURRENTLY dos will become more ABOUT 2.5 popular for baby boomMILLION er generation buyers. It PROPERTY has been forecasted that HOMEOWNERS by 2030, the condo market will increase to 68 per ARE OVER THE AGE cent of Canada’s real esOF 60. tate market. That should come as no surprise given that currently about 2.5 million property homeowners are over the age of 60. This should have an incredible impact on the housing market as more sale signs start to pop-up as retirement approaches, and homeowners begin liquidating their house asset to downsize to condos or other smaller properties. But so far, the real effect of that market trend has yet to be felt, but whether baby boomers in the future decide to downsize to condo living or simply decide to stay, their decisions will inevitably have a tremendous impact on our economy. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
