CMH redevelopment plan goes to minister Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Interior Health is forwarding Cariboo Memorial Hospital’s redevelopment plan to the Ministry of Health. “They said that they would present it as a capital request,” said John Massier, Cariboo Chilcotin Regional Hospital District chair, “We’ve had their verbal promise that it’s going to be put on the list.” A meeting between IH and the Ministry of Health is slated for Nov. 15. Massier is hopeful the plan will be put on the list then and the region can begin moving forward to update the hospital. “It was explained to us that IH has a list with around 22 major capital items across the region, items of $1.5 million and greater. Our first request would be around the $600,000 range, to do the next step, the functional plan.” Peter Du Toit, area director of acute care Thompson Cariboo, confirmed the CMH redevelop-

ment plan is definitely on the list, but said it will not necessarily be discussed at the Nov. 15 meeting. It is not a capital planning meetings, but the start of meetings. “It’s not a single process, but a series of meetings where we are taking the next steps in the capital planning process and that includes the submission of the list of priorities to the Ministry of Health,” Du Toit said. “We’ve had some very good discussions with the CCRHD chair recently and really do look forward to working with him in the future. We know this is a very important development for the residents of the Cariboo, the redevelopment of Cariboo Memorial Hospital and it’s also important for Interior Health.” Massier said once the list is sent to the Ministry of Health, with rankings that are not made public, it’s out of the hands of IH and in the hands of the ministry who receives capital requests from all of the province’s health authorities. “The ministry then makes the

decisions on how projects move forward. It’s out of the hands of Interior Health. I think that’s where local, political pressure can come. Once the CMH plan is on the list then we as local politicians and users of the service need to lobby our MLAs and our Minister of Health to make sure this functional plan rises up through that list and actually gets funded in the next fiscal year so they can get on with this next stage of planning,” Massier said. As far as priorities go, Massier said all of the regional hospital board chairs in Interior Health were given the list of capital plans. “That’s a list of $880 million worth of projects. I got it out of them that the service plan is basically projects that have been funded and probably 80 per cent of its already completed. There’s probably $100 million or more of the Kelowna expansion that’s still in progress and not completed yet, so that money’s already been approved and in the works, but it’s

not reflected in Interior Health’s budget yet. It will come into their capital budget in the years that it gets built.” On the next “wish list” of the 22 projects that totals about $1 billion, there is $700 million ahead of the Cariboo Memorial Hospital project, Massier added. “Unless the order of that list changes, we’re still going to be waiting some time, but even on that list, it’s prioritized by Interior Health, but I can tell you there are priorities that were listed behind us that have been announced and moved forward. It doesn’t necessarily go in order down the list the way Interior Health would like it to go. It’s up the ministry once the list is submitted.” DuToit agreed with Massier’s comments, adding the steps do take some time. “But I can assure you when the CMH redevelopment does happen it will be a significant capital investment into the region and it’s exciting,” Du Toit said.

Yunesit’in health centre opens Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The new health facility for the community of Yunesit’in (Hanceville) officially opened Nov. 2. The $2-million building features a traditional room for medicine and some First Nations practices, room for an alcohol and drug program, a nursing station, home support and rooms for specialists, such as optometrists who may visit one or two days a month. There is also space for prenatal and postnatal aftercare. “It will be a facility for the whole area, Yunesit’in and Tlet’ingox (Anaham),” Chief Russell Ross Myers said. “At the opening we had the architect, people from Health Canada, and some of our leaders that have helped with the project from the very beginning.” Anaham opened a similar facility a year ago, and Toosey (Riske Creek) will be opening one next. The new buildings have come about as Health Canada

B.C.’s minister of agriculture, Norm Letnick, has been touring areas of the province this month to meet with food producers. “I’m trying to get a good handle with what’s actually happening on the ground so that when I make my recommendations to government, probably some time in early in January, I’ll have a good idea where the challenges are, what some of the key options are for solutions and improvements and can articulate to other members of government why I have selected a particular course of action,” the minister said. A city councillor for nine years, in Banff, Alta. and Kelowna, Letnick said he learned it’s a challenge to make recommendations without knowing what’s going

health needs and be able to help design and envision health services.” First Nations history has involved land alienation or a forced loss of traditional livelihood, and many health illnesses are related to those historic factors, Ross Myers explained.

“Having health planning happening in the community with people who understand what happened to our people and why we’re in those situations will be a benefit.” There isn’t a name for the new facility yet. Construction was completed last month

on. Two particular focuses have dominated the tour. First off, the departure of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency from B.C. in 2013, and how the province should proceed. “They told us they were leaving a few months ago so we’ve had to look at how we handle meat inspection regulations and the meat inspection itself once they leave. Over the last year we’ve had a lot of consultation with industry, generated and released the B.C. Abattoir Report. We’ve gone back out to the public with four stakeholder meetings to look at the recommendations,” Letnick said. The other point has been meat inspection in smaller abattoirs. In 2004, the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) scare, resulted in

the regime of A and B abattoirs. In 2010, after a few years of the original regime, rural communities voiced concerns about the lack of abattoir capacity and options in rural B.C. “Government at that time brought in the Ds and Es, which are really small scale abattoirs,” Letnick said. “D is for remote areas with up to 25 animal units a year, usually a unit is a cow, so 1,000 pounds. Es are really small, up to 10 animal units a year. Ten cows, but if you translate that into chickens that’s a lot more chickens.” MLAs in the region have told Letnick there still needs to be some adjustments. “My goal is to recommend some replacements for CFIA but also some changes to the way we do rural processing so it can ac-

commodate rural B.C. a little better,” he said, adding he doesn’t know what the answer is, hence the tour. “I’ve tasked my staff to come back with some options by mid-December and I am also going to host a roundtable near the end of November with some key stakeholders so I can hear different perspectives on what we change or what we should keep the way it is.” During the tour, he’s also talked with farmers about organic farming, potato farming, and challenges rural B.C. faces. Letnick is not going to be in Williams Lake, he said, but was in 100 Mile House, 70 Mile House last week, and will tour Vanderhoof, Prince George, Valemount, Hixon, Clearwater to talk with honey producers, Barrier and Kamloops.

and since then the community has been ironing out the kinks in the building, Ross Myers added.

CRD fringe fire protection advance polls open Wednesday Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Residents living within the fringe areas of Williams Lake will vote on Nov. 24 whether or not they want to continue receiving fire protection from the Williams Lake fire department. When voters go to the polls they will be asked one question; whether or not they want to continue to receive the service they have already been receiving. If residents want to receive the service they should vote “yes” and if the don’t, they should vote “no,” understanding that as of Dec. 31, they will no longer have fire protection services. Around 50 people attended an information meeting on Nov. 6 hosted by the CRD, where Chief Executive Officer Janis Bell went over the referendum and answered questions. Bell said afterwards there is still lots of confusion about the referen-

dum. “The referendum question is confusing because we have to put certain wording in the question about the bylaw and the tax rate. Some people think the rate will be in addition to what they are already paying, but that’s not true. For some people the cost may even be going down,” Bell said, adding the cost to taxpayers will not increase. They will simply continue paying for a service they are already paying for. Many people have told the CRD if nothing’s changing then why is there going to be a referendum. “We need to go to referendum because the province of B.C. had a contract with the city of Williams Lake to provide the service and has taxed the majority of rural residents for that service for many, many years since before the regional district was created,” Bell explained. The province is no longer going to be

Advance polls are Nov. 14 and Nov. 19 at the CRD board room at 180 Third Ave. North. involved with a fire protection contract and has asked the CRD to take over the responsibility. “The CRD cannot simply tax people with-

out their permission. If we could, the referendum would not be necessary and the services could simply continue. In simple terms, we’re

asking if we can assign the provincial contract to the regional district. But we need permission.” Another part of the confusion is the fact that

there were three existing fire protection agreements. A large one with the province that covered most of the fringe area, and two smaller contracts the CRD had with the city of Williams Lake. The rates for the three contracts were different for the same service. “Because the province wanted to end its agreement, it presented an opportunity to amalgamate the three agreements into one that would result in fringe area taxpayers paying the same rate for the same service,” Bell said. Initially there were discussions about going to two referendum questions where residents could opt for service from the 150 Mile House or Wildwood fire departments, however, that is no longer part of the discussion. In the end, the CRD resolved to go with one question for the referendum: “Are you in favour of

the adoption of Bylaw No. 4776, 2012, which would establish a fire protection service in portions of Electoral Areas D, E and F, with a maximum annual requisition of the greater of $619,167 or an amount raised by applying a tax rate of $1.55/$1,000 to the net taxable value of land and improvements in the service area? (Based on 2012 assessed values, the current rate would be $1.37/$1,000, which translates to a residential rate of $129/$100,000.)” Between 1,500 and 2,000 properties are within the fringe fire protection area, however, the results of the referendum will be determined by the votes that are cast. The CRD is encouraging as many voters as possible to take advantage of the advance polls being held Wednesday Nov. 14 and Monday Nov. 19, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. in the Cariboo Regional District (CRD) board room, 180 Third Ave. North. created for ranchers and farmers Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A new web-based enterprise tool for agriculture producers from 100 Mile House to Quesnel was launched by Community Futures Cariboo Chilcotin (CFCC) on Nov. 2. The web-based tool,, is a direct result of a combined effort between various community partners including CFDC, the Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition (CCBAC), Agriculture Enterprise Centre (AEC) based in 100 Mile House, and the Ministry of Agriculture. Wylie Bystedt, a producer based out of

Quesnel, coordinated the project. “I was hired by Community Futures in spring of 2011. There had already been some work around this, so I was hired to implement some of the recommendations that had come forward for a web-based tool,” Bystedt said. She went out and talked to producers in the region to determine what they wanted from the web-tool. On an individual basis, many producers were accessing information and making connections via the internet, she found, so the point of developing was to move forward. “The internet is going

to be the way business is done so we needed to get a tool that people could use. Even producers who we traditionally thought were too far away to regularly access the internet, if they were on party lines or things like that, we found that even they were coming into town and using computers at libraries and friends’ houses,” Bystedt explained. One of the advantages of the tool is that producers who do not have their own websites can have a page on the new web-tool. By clicking on “Find Local Products,” on the website, local producers that have signed up to be part of the list so far can be viewed.

There’s information about where they are located, what they sell, where their products are available, if they offer agri-tourism, or even if they are looking for a farm sitter. By making the webtool broad enough, anyone involved with agriculture will “find a home” on the site, Bystedt explained. “The page is devoted to them, so for producers that don’t have any other web presence, they now have a page. They can now direct people to this page.” While the initial launch was Nov. 2, the site has been live for about three weeks, said Jason Ryll, CFCC marketing and public rela-

tions manager. “We wanted to make sure it’s functionality was up to par and to make sure we could help agriculture producers get a head start going into winter. Agriculture isn’t necessarily on the forefront of everybody’s minds, but now is a good time for producers to start determining what kinds of demands will be there for the next growing season,” Ryll said. Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett said is the result of a long process, including a great deal of regional consultation and research. “I’m happy to see all the hard work bear fruit,

producing an effective tool that agricultural businesses can take advantage of. With the improved ability to research market demand that this website gives to our producers, it will open up new opportunities for them that will benefit consumers as well.” “Investing in agriculture is important to the Cariboo Chilcotin region as we diversify and grow our forest dependent communities beyond the mountain pine beetle devastation,” said Kerry Cook, chair Cariboo Chilcotin Beetle Action Coalition and Mayor of Williams Lake. In a press release CCFC noted there are

approximately 1,160 farms/ranches in the Cariboo Regional District farming over 486,000 ha. of land. However, most farms in the Cariboo and surrounding regions earned less than $50,000 annually from total gross farm receipts.  Compounding many of the challenges facing agriculture in the area is the average age of farm operators at 53.8 years of age.

NStQ raises alarm about declining moose population Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer For the first time ever the Northern Secwepemc te Qelmucw (NStQ - formerly Northern Shuswap) are going public with concerns about over-hunting of moose within their traditional territory. “Non-Secwepemc First Nations are harvesting cow and calf moose,” said Chief Ann Louie of the Williams Lake Indian Band and NStQ spokesperson. “These actions are unacceptable to NStQ leadership and we do not condone the harvest of cow and calf moose even amongst our own members.” In addition to declining moose populations that have been identified within parts of the Cariboo, non-Secwepemc te Quelmucw First Nations hunters are disregarding protocol and hunting within NStQ traditional territory without the knowledge and permission of the NStQ governing bodies, Louie added. “Williams Lake Indian Band traditional territory is being heavily impacted because of its proximity to the city of Williams Lake and the high number of First Nations that live within the city.” Presently the proper protocol for non-Secwepemc First Nations hunters is to contact the appropriate NStQ member community and request permission to hunt within their re-

Moose populations in the Cariboo Chilcotin are declining due to overharvesting. spective traditional territory. Once an application is made, the NStQ bands of Williams Lake, Soda Creek, Canim Lake and Canoe/Dog Creek review the application and then issue a permit that designates that person or persons to hunt for a specified species, gender and period of time. Without a permit those hunters are considered to be hunting illegally within the NStQ traditional territory and legal action can be taken under the BC Hunting Regulations. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, in an emailed response said ministry staff continue to review policy options on the question of First Nations hunting in another First Nations’ traditional territory. First Nations indi-

viduals hunting outside their traditional territory are asked to abide by all other Wildlife Act requirements for resident hunters such as LEH requirements, open seasons, bag limits, gear restrictions etc., although would not require a hunting licence. If any First Nation

believes that unlawful hunting is occurring in their territory, the ministry encourages them to report the offence to the Conservation Officer Service, who will investigate and take action as appropriate. “While the Wildlife Act does not specifically address these situations, we encourage First Nations to resolve any territorial disputes among themselves and to be respectful of each other’s traditions,” the ministry said. Recent counts have shown a decline of the moose population by 60 per cent in the region. “WLIB members have had the poorest year ever with moose harvesting. The majority of us that use the resource, including myself, did not get a moose last year,” Louie said. “Community members take their role as stewards of the resources very seriously, no matter what it is. I think it’s critically important

that we play an integral role in the permitting process, not only for us, but for hunters in general.” If moose numbers are declining, then the number of permits should also be reduced, she suggested. “It’s an opportune time for First Nations to become involved in a guardianship program where we can become directly involved in monitoring what’s going on on the land.” Responding the ministry said NStQ is interested in pursuing an agreement with the province aimed at helping conserve moose, other wildlife and fish populations. Work to date has focused on population studies and examination of hunting regulations in hopes of developing harvest allocations that better serve the needs of the First Nations. To date no formal agreement has been reached.

Commissionaires help war vets find employment Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Canadians are becoming more concerned with the plight of modern veterans struggling to make the transition from the Canadian Forces to civilian life. According to a Nanos survey conducted Oct. 4 to Oct. 11, sampling 1,000 Canadians, 94 per cent of those surveyed agreed Canadians have an obligation to ensure modern veterans find meaningful employment after they’ve finished their service in the Canadian Forces. Founded in 1925 as a not-for-profit society, Commissionaires helps provide meaningful employment for veterans as they make the transition from the Canadian Forces to civilian life. From his home in Langley, Bill Sutherland, chair of the National

Board of Commissionaires, said in B.C. there are two divisions of Commissionaires that service the province. One is located on Vancouver Island and serves the island, Victoria and Yukon. The other is BC Corps, based in Vancouver, with regional offices across the province. A veteran, serving with the Princess Patricia Light Infantry for 28 years, Sutherland has volunteered for the Commissionaires on its national board of governors since retiring from the military in 1997. “We’re the largest employer of veterans in Canada. We’re kind of unique. We employ the whole spectrum of veterans. We have veterans from the Second World War all the way through to newer veterans who served in Afghanistan, who didn’t actually serve in a war zone, but have

recently left the Canadian Forces.” In Canada there are over 5,000 people who leave the Canadian Forces in any given year. There are over 600,000 veterans according to Veterans Affairs, Sutherland added. Employment for Commissionaires is primarily focused on security, such as guarding positions for people with skills in the high tech world such as digital fingerprinting, in municipal bylaw enforcement, and security consulting and training. The jobs go well beyond traditional guarding, and the organization works very closely with police forces and the federal government. “We have the constant challenge to meet the needs of all kinds of veterans. With the skills and experiences that today’s veterans are coming out of the forces with, we

need to be able to turn those into finding meaningful employment for them,” Sutherland said, adding veterans retiring from the RCMP are also served by the organization. There are several veteran advocacy organizations that already exist in Canada, Sutherland said, Commissionaires does not attempt to duplicate those efforts. “We’ve found it’s best for us to remain neutral in these things and focus on finding employment. We are the largest employer of veterans in the country.” The challenge is to constantly evolve as an organization, Sutherland suggested, and while focusing on employment for veterans it’s also important to hire nonveterans. “The combination of the two means we have a broader spectrum of em-

Too soon

B.C. world class destination


aybe I’m a grump, but November is too early for Christmas stuff, like decorating halls and lamp posts. I agree with the consumers who complained about Christmas music in the stores already. Starting after Remembrance Day is bad enough, never mind Hallowe’en, why not wait until December? The city has the wreaths up downtown already. I guess it’s handier to put them up before it gets too cold but too much of any good thing is still too much. *** According to some reports, Prime Minister Harper’s trip to India didn’t turn out as well French as he’d Connection expected. Diana French I wonder if having his own armoured limousine flown over for his convenience impressed the Indian government. Did the RCMP think there were no safe vehicles in India or were they concerned over India’s security system? They must have had a good reason for spending over $21,000 an hour to get the PM’s own vehicles there. Maybe Mr. Harper could make fewer trips abroad. *** Premier Clark has reinstated the government’s Tourism BC, which was dumped by Gordon Campbell, with a Crown corporation, Destination BC. Let’s hope whoever is in charge of it will be fiscally responsible. Some Crown corps are out of control. After a government audit found problems at ICBC, the insurance company cut 250 staff, including top management. That is expected to save $29 million next year, but severance pay could come to $26 million (at least) so insurance rates aren’t likely to drop for awhile. Question. If the company can provide the same service with so many people gone, why were they there in the first place? ICBC isn’t the only Crown with money issues. A whopping $11 billion debt didn’t stop BC Hydro executives from getting bonuses of up to $100,000. Whoever runs BC Ferries isn’t doing such a wonderful job either, with high executive salaries and few passengers. Is nobody minding the store?

Sled dog memorial a reminder of need for tougher cruelty penalties A heart-breaking case that served to shine attention on animal cruelty around the world found closure in a tranquil setting just outside Penticton. Several dozen mourners gathered at the B.C. SPCA pet cemetery in Penticton recently to pay their respects to 56 sled dogs who were killed in Whistler in April 2010. The dogs were shot or had their throats slit as a result of a drop in demand for sled dog tours following the 2010 Olympics. The mass killing launched the largest animal cruelty investigation in B.C. SPCA history, with the former general manager of Howling

Dog Tours pleading guilty to causing unnecessary pain and suffering to animals. “We could not save you, but we could be your voice demanding justice for these unspeakable crimes,” the SPCA’s Marcie Moriarty said during the Penticton ceremony. Although incidents like the mass killing are thankfully rare, the suffering and neglect of helpless animals is all too common. And it is these cases where our attention is most needed. “It has opened our eyes to the lack of penalty there is for the abuse that happens to animals. “We hope this case in particular

will set things in motion to change things,” said Phil Jensen, an SPCA volunteer who travelled from his home in Chilliwack for the memorial service. While Friday was a time to mourn the cruel fate suffered by those 56 dogs, now is the time to focus our efforts on bringing stricter penalties for those found guilty of abuse and pledging our support for programs that provide comfort to animals in distress. Because it is that support that will be the greatest tribute we can give to those 56 dogs who have touched the hearts of so many of us. Black Press

have always been so grateful to live in a province as diverse and beautiful as British Columbia. Williams Lake is a perfect example, as the rural charm has always been a big draw for our tourists, who choose to visit us time and time again. We are the lake city of B.C., and a part of B.C.’s cowboy country the Cariboo. It would be wonderful if we could share the many activities our area provides: our ranching culture, our rich gold rush history, our trail-clad hillsides, MLA o u r Musings whitewater Donna Barnett r a f t ing, our shops and local restaurants, and our annual stampede each July. We have a wide range of activities that everyone would certainly enjoy. As with the rest of our province, tourism is a fundamental part of our economy. We, as a tourist town, have a deep understanding and appreciation for this. Those who are not familiar with our spectacular province and what it provides will soon have a better opportunity to discover it. The government made an announcement just this past Monday that helps cement British Columbia as a world-class destination spot in the decades to come. Destination BC is a new, industry-led Crown corporation that will work together with tourism stakeholders across B.C. to market our beautiful and exciting province. We will finally have a chance to share with others, worldwide, what we enjoy every single day. Destination BC was designed by tourism operators, who understand how a tourism marketing organization should be structured, in order to help them grow their industry and create jobs. It will take full responsibility for operations on April 1, 2013. For the first year of operations, it will receive the full funding that the government has used for tourism marketing. Following that, funding will be set based on a percentage of annual sales tax activity, and enshrined in legislation. I am excited about the future of our great province and seeing the many new faces Destination BC will bring to Williams Lake. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.

More Viewpoints A successful Poppy ESCAPING WINTER GEESE TAKE FLIGHT Campaign in 2012 Editor: As we approach the final hours of our Royal Canadian Legion national Poppy Campaign, and on behalf of the millions of Canadians who have had the opportunity to wear a poppy this year, I want to thank our more than 330,000 legion members in more than 1,500 legion branches across Canada, the United States and in Europe for their support and dedication for this campaign. With an estimated 18 million poppies worn this year, our efforts to remember the more than 117,000 servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice have been recognized. By making a donation and wearing a poppy, Canadians of all ages support Canadian Forces and RCMP veterans and their families as well as the many communities where we live. The Poppy Campaign makes it possible for the legion to operate a service bureau which acts as an advocate for veterans and RCMP members and their families to ensure their quality of life is the best

it can be. Every year, the money collected through the Poppy Campaign is used to provide direct assistance for veterans and their families who are experiencing financial distress. The funds are used to pay for food, accommodation, utilities, hospital comforts and dental and optical services. The legion truly cares about all veterans, not just by advocating on their behalf, but by engaging in everyday activities to make their lives better. In fact, our most recent records show more than $13 million were disbursed as benevolent awards to Canada’s veterans and serving personnel. Again, thank you to the thousands of legion members who helped with our Poppy Campaign and to the millions of Canadians who have proudly supported our campaign this year. We are truly grateful.  We will remember them,  Gordon Moore Dominion President The Royal Canadian Legion Dan Hicks photo

Advocating for hospital plan a must Editor: An adequate and functional hospital should be the cornerstone of our community infrastructure and would help us retain our medical professionals in this community and attract others that are needed. During a recent brief stay in Cariboo Memorial Hospital, I found the facility extremely cold and drafty. It was not clear whether it was a result of a dysfunction of the heat system, or just an old system in a very old building. I’m sure there have been many others who have also experienced

this type of discomfort in the current facility. The nursing staff was excellent as always and did their best to mitigate the problem. The purpose of this letter is to encourage the citizens of Williams Lake and area to insist that Interior Health and the Ministry of Health work together to begin to implement the Cariboo Memorial Hospital Redevelopment Plan immediately.

Smoking on school grounds a concern Editor: There have been numerous times I have driven by the Marie Sharpe/GROW school property and have seen over 10 people just outside the school doors, still on school property smoking cigarettes. I have personally spoken to the principal at the GROW who informed me his hands are tied on this issue and he has

tried telling them to move off the property. This location is where children attend school, a daycare centre, bus stop and a busy Strong Start is located. I am appalled that nothing has been done to get these kids off school grounds to smoke somewhere else. I would never send my children

to attend Marie Sharpe Elementary School for the fact that they can watch these older kids smoking on school property. There is an act in place under the Tobacco Control Act that prohibits smoking on school grounds, this should be adhered to in our community. Lindsey Shewchuk Williams Lake

MLA already discloses expenses Dear Editor: In your article on MLA expenses there is a statement that suggests my expenses have just recently been made available to the general public. In reality, I have published my travel expenses on my web page ( about-bob/bobs-expenses/) since September 2011, more than a year ahead of the decision by the two political parties to allow the pub-

lication of their own MLAs’ travel expenses. This past September I began to publish all of the expenses associated with running my offices in Quesnel and Victoria from the beginning of this fiscal year. The Legislative Management Committee, made up of representatives of the BC Liberals and BC NDP have yet to decide if and how these other expenses will be pub-

lished. As is clear from my own disclosure, I believe all of the taxpayer costs associated with being an MLA and all of the taxpayer costs of the political party Caucuses should be publicly disclosed as soon as possible. Bob Simpson Independent MLA Cariboo North Twitter: @bobsimpsonmla

Smart sugar substitutes for diabetics Monitoring glucose levels in the blood to ensure they are at an acceptable level is a vital task in a diabetic’s life. Unstable levels can mean the difference between living a healthy life or illness and even death. Eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated with plenty of water and possibly using medication or insulin injections are a few of the ways to maintain one’s glucose levels. When a diabetic eats, the sugar in his or her food is digested into glucose. Sugar is normally used by cells for energy. Insulin is a hormone that is secreted by the pancreas and helps to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats while removing excess glucose from the blood, which could prove toxic. Individuals who have no insulin production (type 1 diabetes) and those whose insulin is inefficient at moving sugar out of the bloodstream (type 2 diabetes) may have to take insulin and regulate their sugar intake to keep the body in balance. Although having diabetes means a lifelong regimen of watching what you

Ever-Changing Sky: A Cariboo Memoir Sage Birchwater Tribune Staff Writer Doris Lee had been married less than two years when she moved from northern California with her husband, John, to Big Lake. It was February, 1951, an odd time of year to start ranching in the Cariboo. To top it off, Doris was a city girl from Redding, and hardly prepared for such a radical change of lifestyle. John was several years older than she, and had grown up on a ranch. Doris was a school teacher with only a couple years of teaching under her belt. She had different dreams and ambitions than heading to the wilds of British Columbia so far from family and friends. But it was the woman’s prerogative in those days to go where her husband could support his family, and she did. In fairness, John was a kind and gentle man, and allowed his wife to make the difficult choices to join him as a rancher’s wife so far away from home. It took Doris several years to stop being homesick and to learn the skills of backwoods living. She persevered and drew on her strength of character learning to pull calves, work in the hay fields, trap, hunt, herd their big flocks of sheep into the alpine of Yank’s Peak north of Likely, and raise their two sons, Michael and Gary. Sixty years later she sat down to write her story. Doris’s memoir, Ever-Changing Sky: From Schoolteacher to Cariboo Rancher, takes the reader by the hand on an intriguing journey into the world she discovered moving north to the Cariboo. Through the eyes of a newcomer, you are introduced to the wiles of ranching, the warm friendliness of country neighbours, the challenges of making do without all the modern conveniences, putting food by for the winter, the births and the raising of her two boys, trapping, hunting, guiding, breeding and training Kelpie stock dogs, and some hair-raising adventures. Doris had been in the country 10 years and her children were no longer babies when she came to the realization she was no longer a dude. “Despite the many tears and exciting and sometimes horrendous experiences, I had accomplished the feat of becoming a rancher’s wife,” she writes. She was now considered a good hunter and an excellent shot. “I was also a rugged individual who could strap on a backpack and compete with the best. Guiding was something I could do well. I cooked, took out extra hunters, skinned and cared for their meat, wrangled horses, and did whatever else needed to be done.”

Top left: Doris Lee as she is today. Top right: School teacher Doris becomes a competent guide and hunter. Middle and at left: Husband John Lee herds sheep from the mountains around Yanks Peak through the village of Likely and across the Likely Bridge to their ranch at Big Lake.

Doris tells of one discovery in August, 1963, while exploring with her kids at their Yank’s Peak sheep camp. Following some blazes they came upon a towering grave marker five feet tall, 14 inches wide, and two-and-a-half inches thick. It was inscribed, “Sacred to the memory of William Luce – Native of Maine, USA, Died 28 May, 1881, Aged 60 years.” Nearly 30 years later, Doris took historian, Dave Falconer to the site and the grave marker was still there unchanged except for a lengthwise crack.

They took the headboard to the Cedar Creek Museum in Likely and left a replica in its place. Doris conveys the competency and sensitivity of shooting two caribou at the sheep camp. “We field dressed these caribou, then skinned and hung the meat back at camp,” she writes. “Neither John nor I enjoyed killing them. I had lived with them all summer and it felt like killing a friend. We vowed never to shoot another caribou and we didn’t.” This week, Doris’s memoir, Ever-Changing Sky: From School-

teacher to Cariboo Rancher, published by Caitlin Press, will be launched at several locations. There will be an informal book signing at the Seniors Activity Centre in Williams Lake on Wednesday, Nov. 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a more formal launch at the Williams Lake Library on Friday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. On Saturday, Nov. 17, Doris will have a table at the Cowboy Christmas in the Gibraltar Room, and on Saturday, Nov. 24 she will be at the Made In The Cariboo Craft Fair at the Tourism Discovery Centre.

The Museum of the Cariboo Chilcotin will host its annual Cowboy Christmas trade show at the Gibraltar Room from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17. The trade show is followed by a Cowboy Christmas concert in the evening starting at 7 p.m. Concert tickets are $15 and available at the door.

Corey RobertsReynolds, a masters student at Thompson Rivers University in the environmental science program gave a talk, Thursday night, Nov. 8 at Scout Island Nature Centre on parasites endangering two species of frogs near Kamloops. He explained how the life cycle of wormy parasites causes deformities like extra limbs, skin webbings, and twisted limbs on Pacific tree frogs and Spotted frogs, which affect the ability of the frogs to survive. He also noted that deformities are a natural phenomenon in nature, not necessarily caused by contamina-

tion of the environment. The study conducted at Isobel Lake near Kamloops tracked the flat worm parasite moving through three hosts, including migratory birds, snails and frogs. Roberts-Reynolds said he did his research under guidance of TRU’s Dr. Tom Dickinson, but outside the masters program. He said his study is a good example of high level civilian science. “Dr Tom Dickinson helped me get the permits for the work,” he said. Roberts-Reynolds did his first two years of university at TRU’s Williams Lake campus before getting his BSc and taking the graduate program in Kamloops.

Good Food Box makes a nice charitable gift for Christmas

Photo submitted

Carmen Kallman with one of the healthy food boxes of vegetables available through the Women’s Contact Society’s Good Food Box program available at low cost prices.

Once a month, the Good Food Box Program offers families a chance to participate in a bulk-buying program, which allows participants to include fresh produce in their diets. For the low cost of $10. for a small box and $15. for a large box a family receives a box of high quality fresh fruits and vegetables that would normally cost 40 to 50 per cent more if purchased at full retail cost, says program coordinator Carmen Kallman. “The box also includes recipe ideas for economical healthy meals,” Kallman says. While the cost is reasonable, Kallman is asking that people who can afford it to consider sponsoring a less fortunate family this Christmas. “Despite the low cost of the boxes we are finding an increasing number of families in our community cannot afford to participate,” Kallman says.

“We invite you to sponsor a family or an individual’s participation in the Good Food Box Program. You can choose to sponsor for up to 12 months. It is a simple and inexpensive way to have a major impact on a family’s health and wellness by giving the gift of good eating, a gift that is directly related to improving health and preventing disease in our community.”

While you’re thinking about giving to others, how about yourself? she continues. “Are you confident that you and your family are getting maximum value and nutrition for your dollar?” The Good Food Box is open to everyone, regardless of income. In fact, the more households that participate, the stronger the program gets. Increased participa-

tion means greater purchasing power, which in turn puts more food in the box. “The Good Food Box is a low cost, high quality gift that keeps on giving. It offers you an economical, nutritious and convenient way to tell people you are thinking about them.” For more information call Carmen Kallman at the Women’s Contact Society at 250392-4118.
