Adult literacy SANTA RIDES THROUGH TOWN JINGLING ALL THE WAY gets boost The B.C. government announced Nov. 26 that adult learners around the region will get help to improve their literacy and numeracy skills, and advance their education and career goals due to funding for the Community Adult Literacy Program (CALP). The government is providing $2.4 million to support 68 community-based adult literacy projects in 2012-2013, benefitting close to 6,400 British Columbians. Projects funded under CALP provide instruction and support to adult learners in everything from basic literacy to high school completion. Most projects offer one-onone tutoring by trained volunteers, small group classes and other types of learning tailored to adults, aboriginal learners, young parents and others in the community in need of support.

Fire rips through lakecity transfer station Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A fire broke out Monday morning (Nov. 26) at the transfer station in Williams Lake at around 8:45 a.m. The fire, which has now been extinguished, caused approximately $50,000 worth of damage to the structure the Cariboo Regional District confirmed. The fire began when CRD contractor, Peterson Contracting Ltd., started up the 966C rubber tired front-end loader in the transfer sta-

tion building it unfortunately ignited. The operator tried unsuccessfully to extinguish the flames, and subsequently called 9-1-1 to dispatch the Williams Lake Fire Department. Peterson Contracting Ltd.’s comptroller Ryan Bailey said the loader was around 20 to 25 years old. While the fire was still active, there was the odd “boom” sound coming from the building. Bailey, who did not witness the fire, said the sound was most likely tires catching on fire.

Fire chief Randy Isfeld said fire crews fought the fire from the outside before going inside. Wildwood Volunteer Fire Department sent two water tenders to assist. “There are components that could blow off that machine, which is why we try to have a go at the fire from a distance first and then move up on it once we’ve got it cooled down.” By 9:40 a.m. the fire was locked down, and an examination of the facility by the fire department show it was safe to re-open it.

The final results show with a vote of 978 in favour and 30 against, Cariboo Regional District residents living in the fringe fire protection area have chosen to continue receiving fire protection from the city of Williams

eral election day 479 votes, for a grand total of 1008 eligible voters. “This is one of the best turnouts we have had for any CRD referendum in my experience with the organization. This positive turnout shows that people understood what was being asked of them, and they obviously felt

it was important to exercise their right to vote and have their say,” Bell said. The CRD will now be moving forward to finalize details under a new agreement with the City of Williams Lake based on the outcome of this referendum and the message received from affected residents.

Donna Barnett acclaimed by local Liberals Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

It’s been a big week for Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. She turned 70 on Nov. 17 and on Nov. 21 was acclaimed the BC Liberal candidate for the next provincial election in May. At the nomination meeting held at the Pioneer Complex Nov. 21, Barnett said she believes the Liberals have accomplished “a lot” in the riding. “There’s been lots of money put into roads, we got Deni House open, we’re working diligently to keep our schools open, even though populations are decreasing. Many good things have happened. We’ve got great working relationships with people, organizations, local governments of all levels.” Noting the forest industry has downsized because of the mountain

to see it come to fruition in this region. I’ve also had lots of success helping the agriculture community, another industry that in my opinion needs more help and innovation. I’m prepared to work as hard as I have in the last four years for the next four years.”

Responding to NDP candidate Charlie Wyse’s most recent criticism of the Liberals’ “mismanagement of the forest industry” Barnett said Wyse does not remember the pine beetle. “It came in the late 90s. You weren’t allowed to go into parks

when his government was in place. We must also remember what happened in the Chilcotin back in the late 90s when the NDP cancelled the forest licenses of the West Chilcotin Carrier Mill and it cost taxpayers of B.C. over $100 million in compensation, and look at what it did to the Chilcotin, so please Charlie, don’t try and tell me that you know about economics.” Critical that the “NDP do not support Prosperity,” that leader “Adrian Dix has said it and Charlie Wyse has said it,” Barnett questioned how jobs will be created in the region if nothing is allowed to happen. “How can you create jobs when you take forest licenses away? I’m proud of our record in creating jobs and I will continue to work to help create jobs. I know child poverty is a big issue and the best way to

Small business accord visits Williams Lake Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Business owners met with Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett for a small business roundtable discussion in Williams Lake Nov. 22. Hosted by the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce, the meeting attracted about 20 people who shared ideas on how government can make it easier for business to do business. “We discussed government initiatives and programs that would make communities more business friendly and what kinds of red tape

are impeding small business and causing problems,” Barnett said. The group advocated for more funding for local Thompson Rivers University apprenticeship programs and trade opportunities. “A lot of time businesses will spend money sending employees away to obtain certification, they’ll come back, and then they’ll leave. Somehow we have to find ways to keep them here. There’s nothing in the labour laws that specifies that.” Chamber president Jason Ryll described the roundtable as important because it gave local

business the opportunity to speak face to face and candidly with government. “It was very productive. We as the chamber would like to move forward with the ability to educate our younger work force in develop-

ing some employable skills, not necessarily only trade skills, but give them some usable skills that would prepare them for the work force.” The meeting was one of several being hosted in November to gather input for the Small Busi-

ness Accord initiative coming out of the Minister of State for Small Business Naomi Yamamoto’s office. “Hopefully direction for government in the next few year will come out of these meetings,” Barnett said.

solve child poverty is to put people to work, put food on the table, and shoes on their kids. To me that’s what it’s all about.” Barnett said as she looks toward the next term she is fortunate to be healthy and energetic. “I feel very passionate about helping our region.” Cariboo Chilcotin Liberal Riding Associa-

tion president Bill Carruthers said no one else came forward to be vetted as a candidate. He recalled that Barnett won the election in 2009 by 88 votes over NDP candidate Charlie Wyse. “People say their vote doesn’t count, but up here it does. This is a swing riding. In 2005, the NDP won by 114 votes,” Carruthers said.

Local unions protest foreign workers program Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Union members gathered at Herb Gardner Park in Williams Lake at noon Nov. 23 calling on Premier Christy Clark to say “no” to temporary foreign workers in B.C. coal mines. Held strategically across the street from Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett’s constituency office, participants held signs, gave speeches, and called out for Barnett to come outside. Barnett, however, was not in Williams Lake. “When Christy Clark and Pat Bell went to China on a trade mission and signed all those multi-million dollar contracts they forgot to tell British Columbians that they were also allowed to bring in foreign workers,” said Bob McNair from the United Steelworkers Union Local 1-425. “These demonstrations are taking place right across Canada.” His union’s workers are employed at Mt. Polley Mine, he explained. Mitch Van Dale, also with the Steelworkers union, said it’s not appropriate for the provincial or federal government to allow foreign

Canadian Auto Worker Local 3018 negotiating committee member and trustee Ed Adams and his son, Nolan, 3, were among those who attended a rally in Williams Lake Nov. 23 protesting the B.C. government’s temporary foreign workers program. workers to come into Canada to be subjected to substandard wages and safety conditions. Also at issue is the fact Canadians are not being hired for some of the jobs, Van Dale said. “There were a number of Canadian people that applied for the positions and a number of them were turned down. One of the conditions they have for bringing them in is that they

have to be able to speak Mandarin. Another issue is the $12,000 requirement to get on a plane and a bus to come over here plus an additional $400 a month per individual.” It’s an inappropriate use of workers and a slap in the face to Canadian workers,” Van Dale said. Steelworker Will Phillips pointed to Johannesburg, SA where

miners are being shot for rights. “Are we going to start doing that to these Chinese when they want to be treated like B.C. workers? “We’re introducing slavery. We’re bringing people here without the rights,” Phillips said. Ed Adams, negotiating committee member and executive trustee with the Canadian Auto Worker (C.A.W.) Lo-

cal 3018, employed at Gibraltar Mine for six years, said he wants there to be mining jobs in the future. Holding his threeyear-old son Nolan in his arms, Adams said Canadian workers are not being given a chance to work at Chinese owned coal mines. “I have two sons. By the time they get older are there going to be any jobs for them? I

work at a mine. It gives me great benefits and I am able to raise my family because of it. “Mining is a great opportunity. Fish Lake [New Prosperity] is a great opportunity if they run it properly. You don’t need to bring foreign workers in to run these mines. We need to promote Canadian citizens,” Adams said. “If you need to speak Mandarin, not too many electricians, millwrights, or heavy duty mechanics are going to meet that requirement.” Steelworker Dave Lautsch has worked at Tolko’s Soda Creek mill for 25 years. He echoed his fellow union members and said it’s unfair to both Canadian workers and foreign workers. “For this to be condoned by any government branch is unconceivable,” Lautsch said. Cariboo Chilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse said the temporary foreign workers program is one of “exploitation.” There is no case to be made for a shortage of skilled workers. “Steelworkers have stated very clearly that the trained workers do exist in B.C. and in Canada. “It’s a matter of taking advantage of the tempo-

rary foreign worker. If indeed there is a shortage then rather than using a temporary foreign workers program, they should be dealing with an immigration program in which people are encouraged to come to Canada, have landed status and become a Canadian citizen,” Wyse said. If there is a shortage, Wyse suggested, it demonstrates a lack of skilled training dollars by the Liberal government in the last 12 years. “An Adrian Dix NDP government gives the commitment of enlarging the openings and trainings for skills and technology. “We’re also committed to renewing the land base so its use is properly done, and committed to skilled jobs,” Wyse said. “All of those things require investment in order for the province to continue developing.” Brian Battison, Taseko Mines Ltd. vice president of corporate affairs, said Nov. 23 the company presently has 600 active resumes on file from people wanting to work for the company. “We would have no need to look outside of the country for workers,” he confirmed.

Taseko’s Gibraltar Mine local takes a strike vote Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Members of the Canadian Auto Workers (C.A.W.) Local 3018 have voted 99 per cent in favour of striking at Taseko’s Gibraltar Mine near Williams Lake. Voting took place by union members on Nov. 21 and 22. “We’re hoping that it will get some momen-

tum in terms of bargaining,” C.A.W. national representative Pete Smith said Friday, Nov. 23. “We’re meeting again with the employer on Dec. 3 and 4.” While Smith wasn’t willing to pinpoint main issues presently at the bargaining table, he said there are “a lot of outstanding issues pending both in the non-monetary and the monetary

components.” There are approximately 470 C.A.W. members presently employed at the mine. Prior to the expansion of the mill over the last couple of years there were around 250 C.A.W. employees. The number has almost doubled. At this point, the workers are not in a legal position to strike. They will have to

serve 72-hour notice, but won’t consider that until after the outcomes of the meetings with Taseko in December, Smith said. Brian Battison, Taseko’s vice president of corporate affairs, said the employer wants to move forward without any labour interruptions. “We’ve invested $700 million to secure Gi-

braltar as a long term producer so that it can survive the ups and downs of the metal markets. When we reopened the mine after keeping it closed for five years after we acquired it, we had 280 total employees,” Battison said. “This year alone we invested $325 million. Gibraltar was one of the highest cost producers in the world. It’s

one of the lowest, if not the lowest grade copper mine in the world. It’s hard to operate and make money.” In order to make the mine an economic success and secure its future, the company invested and reduced its operating costs, making it a more “economically stable mine” compared to other mines in the world, Battison

said. “We’re now in the middle of the pack and we need to continue to move our efforts forward, but we need to make sure we’re managing the mine within the economic realities we face.” Battison said total work force at Gibraltar is 630, and with the expansion the plan is to hire more workers in the future.

NEWS Northern Development hopes to grant more $ Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Northern Development Initiative Trust says money is being left on the table that communities could be using for everything from upgrading community halls to marketing and investment attraction programs. “When the trust was created, each region decided to set up its account separately,” Janine North, NDIT executive director told the Cariboo Regional District board Nov. 16. “That’s why the Northeast has a combined trust account and the other regions have partitioned or segregated accounts, with allocations by communities and regional districts.” North said NDIT would like to see an additional $3 million to $7 million go out of the trust for investment in communities every year. The combined trust account approach would increase the average annual funding to the region by up to

Monica Lamb-Yorski photo

Northern Development Initiative Trust executive director Janine North at the CRD. $1.5 million. “We’re not talking about taking money away or providing new money, but simply reallocating the trust in each region to maximize the amount of money that communities and rural communities can get.”

Small communities won’t lose out, she explained. Today 75 per cent of the amount of funding that NDIT spends has been invested in communities with less than 5,000 people. Per capita basis, communities such as Wells and

Lytton have received $791 where as the average across the pooled trust areas is about $155. “Smaller communities have done much better than larger communities and I think you can attribute that to fact that around the table at the regional advisory committee, every community and every regional interest has a vote.” North said NDIT understands there may be a desire from many communities to ensure there’s equity if the proposed approach was taken. As a result NDIT would do quarterly reporting of project approvals to date, the projects for communities and rural areas since inception, and the sharing of statistics, such as per capita spending. “We also understand that many smaller communities have effectively saved up their allocations to go toward larger projects down the road. We’ve learned that that’s an unintended result of going to those segregated accounts.”

If the accounts had been combined from the beginning then those projects would have been able to go ahead much sooner and there wouldn’t have been that saving involved. “A new combined trust account would let that happen. Rather than wait for the income stream off the smaller accounts build up over time, every year you would have access to about a million dollars of funding, based on projects coming in and the merit of the project. We looked at surpluses in the combined accounts,” North said. NDIT looked at the account for Prince George and saw that every community could have a major project every year for the next three years and it still wouldn’t take off the surplus that’s been building up. The board would like to have communities consider two new programs and one enhanced program. Currently there’s an economic diversifica-

tion infrastructure program that allows up to a $100,000 grant for major community projects that

diversify the community.

Proposed Kwaleen closure draws anger More than 100 people gathered at Kwaleen Elementary School on Nov. 20 to discuss the Initial Options Report produced by the Board of Trustees, and the board’s proposal to close Kwaleen Elementary and four other schools at the end of the 2012/2013 school year. Kwaleen Parent Advisory Council (KPAC) president, Katie Dyck, and Russet Bluff Community Association (RBCA) representative, Kirk Dressler made a presentation that addressed: the reasons reported by the school district as justification for the closing of Kwaleen Elementary; the quality of education offered at Kwaleen School; the probable impacts of closing Kwaleen School on the city and the region; and the deficiencies in the Initial Options Report public engagement exercise.

School District 27 Superintendent Mark Thiessen prepares a slide show on information contained in the Initial Options Report. Parents and residents expressed shock and anger that one of the district’s top performing schools was being selected for closure, and many questioned why other alternatives or options had not been presented by the school district, KPAC and RBCA said

in a joint press release. “The school district mentioned that they had developed five or six other options, and yet they are choosing not to disclose these options to the public,” said KPAC president, Katie Dyck. “We’re entitled to know what the other options are

and to provide input on those options. This is a public body making decisions about public resources that have a profound impact on our children and our community. The process must be fair, open, transparent and meaningful. It has not been that thus far.”

NDIT proposes more programs Continued From Page A4 It’s being proposed that the $100,000 be increased to $250,000 for each major project. “Right now the trust could provide $1 for every $2.50 that’s been from other sources. In essence that’s 28 per cent of the project. The board and the community, and other sources, provide around 72 per cent.” A second program would focus on encour-

aging downtown revitalization — $20,000 going to communities and the regional district, regardless of the size of the community. Chambers or Business Improvement Areas could partner with the business community on signage or a theme, North suggested. “It’s Cataline to encourage businesses to work with Marie Sharpe design Mountview guidelines and enhance the downtown area.” Alexis Creek 150 Mile House Communities could determine Big the Lakefunding


The board of trustees acknowledged they would discuss the possibility of extending the engagement period at the duly convened board meeting of Nov. 27. “I’m pleased to hear that the board will be giving consideration to the extension of the engagement period,” Dressler said. “It is also my understanding that the board will be discussing the issuance of another report. “The description of the first report as the ‘Initial Options Report’ clearly tends to suggest that there will, or should be, another report setting out advanced or refined options. “There has been extensive public input so far, so let’s roll out in a report what that input has been and go from there.”

Manage resources thoughtfully

Diverse needs, unique responses



orests are a renewable resource. Right? The trouble is, it takes many years to grow a tree, and many trees to make a forest. At the moment, nobody knows how many trees we have, never mind how well they are growing. Wouldn’t it be sensible for the provincial government to take an inventory before it opens new logging areas? Another issue is the impact of climate change on our French forests Connection a n d Diana French other natural resources. Potable water is a renewable resource, and B.C. has been blessed with plenty of it, but now there are concerns. The  latest science on climate change is even less optimistic than the much maligned IPCC’s 2007 Fourth Assessment report. The  World Bank’s new report Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4C Warmer World Must be Avoided, warns “we’re on track for extreme heatwaves, declining global food stocks, loss of ecosystems and biodiversity, and life-threatening sea level rise.” U.S. President Obama cites the need to act on climate change “for future generations.” Our Federal Environment Minister  Peter  Kent  says no one has to convince him climate change is a “real and present danger” that needs to be addressed.  Locally, the Cariboo Regional District and the city have a recent study of the effect of climate change on the San Jose watershed. Alarm bells are ringing in northwestern  B.C. because  the fracking process used by the natural gas industry to get the gas is taking so much water from dams, lakes, and streams. We don’t have fracking  yet in the Williams Lake area but we do have major developments either underway (Prosperity Ridge) or in the planning stages (Williams Lake Band, the CRD’s community development) and the city is always looking to “move forward.” Hopefully our local governments are thinking far enough ahead to make sure our water resources will be sufficient for future challenges.

Our Viewpoint

Change needed A study released this month has revealed the cost the failed war on drugs is having on the British Columbia economy. A new study by a coalition of researchers from the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University estimates the B.C. cannabis market could provide the government with $2.5 billion in tax and licensing revenues over the next five years. “If you begin to stand back and calculate just how much potential tax revenue is instead going to fuel organized crime, it really highlights how we need to start questioning our current approach,” said Dr. Evan Wood, senior author of the study. The study is just the latest blow against those who remain committed to preserve and protect the profit margins of organized crime. The study challenges one of the primary arguments against regulating marijuana: that the market cannot be taxed. Critics had previously pointed to U.S. drug laws as a reason why B.C. shouldn’t move towards decriminalization. But when Colorado and Washington state voters approved the

legalization of marijuana use, that argument went up in smoke. “When you look at the enormous potential to save on policing costs, raise government revenue and wage economic war on organized crime, you understand why U.S. states have recently taken the taxation and regulation approach,” said former B.C. premier Ujjal Dosanjh. The list of those calling for changes to marijuana laws has grown to include those from across the political spectrum. The Union of B.C. Municipalities passed a resolution earlier this year calling for the decriminalization of marijuana. Stop the Violence B.C. is a group B.C. law enforcement officials, politicians, legal experts and public health officials advocating changes to the government’s marijuana policies. It seems the only ones left still supporting the current drug laws are those who make their living in organized crime — and their unwitting allies in the provincial and federal governments. - Quesnel Cariboo Observer

ast week was Restorative Justice Week in B.C., which celebrates the important work being done by groups dedicated to restorative justice. I would like to take a moment to talk about this important issue and thank the community volunteers who make these programs so successful, helping so many in our communities. The idea behind restorative justice is to repair the harm that has been done to those who have been victims of crime a n d MLA violence. It holds Musings those Donna Barnett w h o h a v e perpetrated these crimes accountable and is based on a process that takes into consideration the individual needs of victims. The theme of this year’s Restorative Justice Week was “Diverse Needs; Unique Responses,” and I think this really goes straight to the heart of what restorative justice is all about. Every crime is different and impacts different people in different ways; by looking at the specific circumstances of individual cases and the impacts that they have had on the victims, restorative justice tries to achieve fair outcomes which leave both victims and offenders better off than they would be under a traditional approach to justice. Offenders who participate in a restorative justice process have much better outcomes than those who do not. Having participated in a process that allows them to realize the consequences of their actions, and to help repair the harm they have caused, they begin to take responsibility for their own decisions and so are less likely to fall back into crime. Here in B.C., we are fortunate to have volunteers who make these programs possible, such as the Williams Lake Community Council for Restorative Justice. Across the province, in communities both large and small, they take on about 1,400 cases and spend more than 90,000 hours a year helping both victims and offenders reach better outcomes. To those of you working or volunteering to make restorative justice programs so successful, I would like to thank you for your hard work and dedication; you are truly making a difference in peoples’ lives. Donna Barnett is the Liberal MLA for Cariboo-Chilcotin.

Dependence on food banks cause for concern Editor: I appreciate the comments directed at me, by Ms. Joyce of 150 Mile. One of the philosophies that I live by is, “Don’t expect others to do for you what you can do for yourself.” I guess as a senior that is an age thing. My parents, my grandparents and my great grand parents each before me struggled through periods of impossible economic times. My second eldest daughter, living in Alberta, a single mother of four children, two in high school, an adopted pre-schooler, and an autistic son. She receives dialysis treatment for a kidney disease three hours a day, three times a week. When asked why she does not use the food bank, says, “I am sure that there are others in far more need than I am.” With no help from a former husband she works at living within her means. That is my question, regarding the growing number of people dependent on the food banks, are

they doing all they can to help themselves. I recall a National Geographic magazine article about Medellin Columbia, the article discussed how the poor people in tightly packed neighbourhoods of shacks helped provide for their families needs, without gardens, by growing food in pots wherever they could find room to put a pot. Ms. Joyce compares me to a mean old bear; I recall a very sad case of a very hungry momma bear. Momma bear had been raised for generations on garbage, the garbage dump had been closed and moved several kilometers away, momma bear with two tiny cubs had no food, had not learned to survive on plant life or even how to fish. I stopped my service truck beside her, I observed that the poor animal was giving her body to provide for her cubs; she was just a bag of bones. How different is that, where the less needy go to the food banks while those in dire

need say, “I’ll get by, there may be others more in need than I.” The growing dependence on food banks is comparable to the people of Greece that have be-

come so dependent on an entitlement society, that like the starving momma bear, just don’t know how to survive. Living within our means,

means that those that truly are in need, can get the help that they need. Doug Wilson Williams Lake

Stampeders host Kangaroos The last time the Williams Lake Stampeders and the Quesnel Kangaroos faced off it was quite the spirited affair, to say the least. Williams Lake walked away 7-4 winners but the Kangaroos will likely have payback on their minds. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex. Currently the Stampeders sit at 6-3-1 in a first-place East Division tie with the Lac La Hache Tomahawks.

Wellburn discusses role in bike film Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium Special to The Tribune This is the first part in a three-part series that examines the Cariboo’s involvement with the recently released mountain bike film Where The Trail Ends. Three individuals from the region were involved with the film which is a reflection of how significant mountain biking is becoming in this area. John Wellburn, who is a frequent contributor to website and the consortium’s work in general was one of the producers for Where The Trail Ends. We caught up with John from his home in Mendoza, Argentina to talk about his role in the film. Consortium: Tell us about how you got involved with Freeride Entertainment and the Where The Trail Ends Project? Wellburn: I got a call from Jeremy Grant, the director of the film in 2009 after meeting him through Mike Kinrade. Mike and Jeremy wanted to do a trip and had there eyes on Argentina. They needed a photographer and someone to set stuff up on the ground etc. The plan was to shoot a short piece for the Banff Film Festival, a film that would come to be called the Argentine Project. After a few phone calls, we arranged the trip. It was on that trip that we discovered the potential of the Salta area. In a matter of speaking, the Where The Trail Ends project was born after that trip. Consortium: You are one of the producers of

John Wellburn (right) was one of the producers of recently-released mountain bike film Where the Trail Ends. the film. Tell us about that role and the kinds of things you were responsible for? Wellburn: Generally, I was the man on the ground. There is a huge amount of logistics that go into these films. From translation, accommodations, transportation, location management and all the little details that make the film work is the responsibility of the producer. Once the film was born, I worked with Derek Westerland from Freeride to coordinate and fine tune the details of the Fraser and Argentina segments. We hatched over details and logistics before trips on the phone before and throughout the trips. Consortium: You are based in Argentina for half of the year. You own the Alltimerides touring company, have a house there and speak the language, so obviously you had a huge role in managing the Salta location. Tell us about that part of the film? Wellburn: I was familiar with Salta from the 2009 project with Kinrade, so I had a good idea of what it would take for Where The Trail

Ends to pull off this segment. One of the things that had changed from the 2009 shoot was that part of the area had become a park when we returned. So after a few days of filming, the Argentine Park Rangers showed up to find out what we were doing. I spent two days on the phone with Government officials working with them to coordinate the film. In the end it worked out fine and they were satisfied that we were not damaging the environment, but that gives you some idea of what my role was on the ground. [John is then interrupted by a phone call with some dude in Spanish about a property he is selling — obviously the man on the ground]. Consortium: You were also involved with the Gobi Desert segment, tell us about those two trips? Wellburn: This was a bit simpler, I was there as a photographer so my role was clear and is reflected in the book that has been released with the film as well as the articles, etc. The cool thing about the Gobi trip is that I also supported

the director to a certain extent and got to provide some input into how the segments were going to be pulled together. It was a change to have the Chinese guides take over all the logistics! Consortium: That segment of Berrecloth welding up the rack in China, was that real? Wellburn: Darren Berrecloth is a pretty hard core dude. That segment was totally real. You should have seen the equipment we had, or didn’t in this case. At first he didn’t even have a mask and was throwing this thing together. So yes, real deal and a real rider. Consortium: Obviously we are all stoked on the Fraser River segment of the film, tell us about that? Wellburn: This was a cool part of the film being on home turf. I was there supporting Doug Green of Cariboo Chilcotin Jet Boat Adventures as a camp manager of sorts. This segment has a bit more ‘backcountry’ than the balance of the film, so there was a lot more to do in terms of support-

Stampede royals fashionable in Edmonton Alexis Forseille Stampede Queen November! Yes that meant for most of us to quickly get our winter tires put on before the snow truly flies but for the Williams Lake Stampede Royalty that meant yet another wonderful and grand adventure. This time to the Canadian Finals Rodeo! I, Alexis Forseille, was fortunate enough to be taken to Edmonton on Nov. 8 to join Princess Terris Billyboy, and our chaperones Brigette Peel and Jamie Tannis for an action-packed weekend at the CFR. Upon my arrival in the snowcovered city we quickly made our way to Rexall Center to take in the Thursday night rodeo which was the second performance out of six taking place over the weekend. Luckily for us, Terris and Brigette had already been in Edmonton for a week and knew the ins and outs of getting to and from Rexall Center by the LRT transit. When we reached Rexall Center I was absolutely blown away with it all. From the opening act of the night, Chris Young, to the very end of the bull riding and everything in between, it felt like an incredible dream to be watching the finals in person. Thursday night was the evening of the season leader saddle presentations which we happily enjoyed watching after the rodeo. I remember thinking that if Thursday was any indication of how the weekend was going to play out we were in for one wonderful treat! Friday started out with an early morning preparing ourselves for a busy day helping out at the Red Carpet Rodeo Fashion Show. The fashion show is an annual fundraiser hosted by the Ladies of the Canadian Rodeo Association. All proceeds go towards the CPRA Cowboy benefit fund and the Canadian Pro Rodeo Sport Medicine Team. The luncheon was simply extraordinary to attend. Terris and I helped sell tickets for the Gold Buckle Table where if your name was drawn you won an eight person formal table setting and the table you were sitting at was moved to a table beside the runway with additional prizes to be won. After our selling duties were done we enjoyed a lovely catered lunch and a great fashion show. The rest of the day at the event consisted of us helping to sell boas for the ladies to be entered into more prizes and Brigette making it all the way up on to the stage with the heads and tails hat game. We met several of the co-ordinators for the event and many of the Miss Rodeo Canada co-ordinators as well. It was a great experience and

Williams Lake Stampede Queen Alexis Forseille and Stampede Princess Terris Billyboy (fourth and fifth from left) joined royalty from across Canada and Miss Rodeo Canada Gillian Shields (third from left) in participating in the Canadian Professional Rodeo Finals Fashion Show in Edmonton in November to raise funds for the CPRA Sports Medicine Team and Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. I would without doubt like to attend the function again! When we had completed our duties at the fashion show, we quickly changed and headed to West Edmonton Mall to build ourselves each a Build-A-Bear. Mine ended up being called Queenie, while Terris’ was called Princess. The staff really enjoyed having us build our bears and they were wonderful helpers during the process. When our bears were complete we had to quickly head over to Rexall Center for the Friday night rodeo action! During the rodeo the 2013 Miss Rodeo Canada competitors were introduced with a presentation ride of each girl. The rest of the rodeo was just as wonderful to experience as the night before with many arena records being tied right before our eyes! When the rodeo was over we decided before heading home to watch some live music and fortunate for us, it was Gord Banford! Our busy Friday had been perfect. Saturday at the CFR has a one o’clock and a seven o’clock rodeo. At the first rodeo we watched Jillian Shields be crowned as the 2013 Miss Rodeo Canada! After watching the crown be passed over, Terris, Brigette, Jamie and I, quickly hurried to the reception where Terris and I welcomed guests at the door while taking ticket money and

hanging coats. We also met up with Sharon MacDonald and Kirsten Braumandl to watch the beautiful reception and the ladies who ran for Miss Rodeo Canada receive their awards. With the completion of the reception we decided to go to the Farm Fair, which has many trade booths to go through and a special area for kids. To sum it up, the Farm Fair is one big shopping spree! We toured through it and managed not to break the bank accounts before heading off to the second rodeo of the day. The Canadian Cowboy of the Year was awarded to Scott Schiffner who rightfully deserved every piece of it. You could tell the pressure was beginning to get to the cowboys and cowgirls during the second to last rodeo. However, even with the amounting pressure the rodeo was still just as amazing to watch! Sunday Nov. 11, we woke up bright and early to bundle up as much as we possibly could, before walking over to the Edmonton City Hall for their Remembrance Day ceremonies. We participated in the very cold ceremony by laying wreathes on the cenotaph. Terris laid the wreathe for the Williams Lake Stampede Association and I laid the wreathe for the City of Williams Lake. The ceremony was very well done with many digni-

taries and many city representatives laying wreathes while a large crowd watched the proceedings. After warming up we took the LRT to Rexall Center to watch the last rodeo of the 2012 Canadian Rodeo Finals. The place was packed with rodeo fans and the energy was at an all-time high. Some of the most amazing rides and some of the greatest runs of the weekend unfolded before us as many cowboys laid all they had on the line to win their respective titles. Immediately after the rodeo the champions were rewarded their buckles and saddles in the arena. We watched the awards being given to some very deserving cowboys and cowgirls then headed over to the Farm Fair for one last browse through. I would like to thank Willie Crosina for inviting us to attend his CFR tour dinner at the spaghetti factory and the reception afterwards. It was a great way to connect with everyone that travelled with Willie to the CFR from Williams Lake and surrounding areas. The dinner seemed to top off a wonderful week! From my experiences this year, I am already looking forward to the next time I attend the CFR! I would like to thank everyone who helped make our experience at the 2012 Canadian Finals Rodeo extraordinary!

Elks donate apples to food bank The Elks in Williams Lake recently participated in their eighth annual apple drive. The Williams Lake food bank was among eight communities in B.C. to receive apples. “Our Elks Lodge received 5,000 pounds of apples which we gave to the local Salvation Army who will distribute them with the Christmas hampers,” says lakecity Elk Arnie Zimmerman. The Elks of B.C. partner with orchardists in Osoyoos on the apple project which actually includes pears as well. This year 14,000 pounds of apples and pears were donated by three grower fami-

lies, Ken and Mellhina Thibalt of Cassa Del Mell, Joe and Vera Hilario of Lighthouse Orchards, and Joe and Louisa Carvahlo of Carvahlo Orchards, says project spokesperson Ken Thibault. The Elks of Osoyoos transported the fruit to Prince George where it was disbursed to eight community food banks by the Elks in Vanderhoof, Fort St. James, Burns Lake, Mackenzie, McBride, Quesnel, Prince George and of course Williams Lake. Over the past eight years this event has supplied more than 56,000 pounds of freshly picked apples and pears at no cost to recipients.

Carrie Elkin performs at Juniper Trails house concert Award-winning Texas folk/country singer, Carrie Elkin, is set to entertain an intimate gathering of music lovers on Friday, Nov. 30, at Juniper Trails Bed and Breakfast (www. in Williams Lake. With her Red House Records debut release, Call It My Garden, Carrie Elkin ( has emerged as one of the defining new voices in the world of Texas singer/songwriters, being celebrated by Penguin Eggs as their Criticsʼ Favourite Discovery of 2011. Penguin Eggs isn’t the only Canadian institution to recently dis-

Carrie Elkin cover this wispy Texan, as 2011 has seen her explode from the ranks of the unknowns to being a headline artist in major

festivals all across Canada, says her biography. She’s an artist full of contrast and contradiction, with a voice that’s somehow both gritty and pristine. The Austin Chronicle calls it “an earthy combination of strength and compassion . . .” The contrast is reflected in her writing, as well, which is at once devastatingly intimate and embracingly universal. It’s this ability to make a greater connection from the minutia of life that makes Elkin’s songwriting so compelling. The voice, the stories, the images, the grace and infectious enthu-

siasm - it’s a complete package. But it’s the power of her live performances that really have been creating an incredible buzz around this young artist. Maverick Magazine said: “I have never seen a performer so in love with the act of singing.

You are invited...

That’s the gospel truth, and from what I’ve subsequently learned, I’m not the only one to believe or state that.” For more information and to reserve your seats, contact Steve and Emily Harkies at at 250398-8296,

Perfect Match CD a fundraiser for volunteers in Peru Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer They call themselves The Perfect Match, and hearing their perfect harmonies at community events around the community most would agree. LeRae Haynes and Cindy Nadeau both come from different parts of “out west” but share a common love for writing, singing and performing music. Haynes moved to the lakecity from Bella Coola 10 years ago. A longtime Chilcotin resident Nadeau moved to Williams Lake five years ago from Kleena Kleene. “We connected in Williams Lake when Cindy’s daughter, Danielle, joined my kids’ singing group Borderline, and the two of us started playing music together about three years ago, “ says Haynes who is also a freelance journalist, and co-ordinator for the Success by 6 program. The duo has played for dances at the Legion, for the Stampede Street Party, at Canada Day, Performances in the Park, the Harvest Fair, Cowboy Christmas, the Lions Club 400, Relay for Life, Robbie Burns, the Celtic Ceilidh, Remembrance Day and a wide range of fundraising events.  “We play country, rock, pop, celtic, 1940s tunes,” Haynes says. “We play music that makes people want to dance and sing along.” Haynes says they joke that between the two of them they have about 150 years singing experience. Cindy got her start playing oldtime favourites on pub stages as a young teen in Vancouver and LeRae came from a gospel music background, singing on stage for the first time with her dad when she was three years old. They each played with a range of bands over the years. Nadeau toured and recorded with the Cycles, including a stage stint in Scandinavia. Haynes directed a kids’ music group, Borderline, for more than

20 years. Playing and singing together as Perfect Match, Nadeau is the lead singer and plays guitar while Haynes plays keyboards and sings harmony. “We were dubbed ‘Perfect Match’ almost immediately because of our close vocal blend and how much fun we have on stage,” Haynes says. “We often play with Mark Lees on bass guitar and vocal harmonies, and have also played as a five-piece band with Randy Pokeda on steel and lead guitar and Jim Holloway on drums. Now the duo has teamed up with their musical friends to create a CD called Stop on the Bridge. “Our debut CD includes Randy and Mark, with Danielle Schultz on cowbell and spoons, John Sykes on tuba, Glenn Robson on trumpet and Geoff Patenaude on banjo, featured on individual tunes,” Haynes says. “The original songs that Cindy and I brought to this project are Wake Me in the Morning, Frog, Cariboo Pant Leg Polka, Galahad, She Doesn’t Know, Plastic Pink Corvette and Stop on the Bridge.” Haynes and Nadeau got together a couple of times this fall at Nadeau’s cabin in the Chilcotin wilderness for songwriting retreats. “They were really just an excuse to go off-grid for a couple of days: canoeing, quadding, hiking, log chinking and woodpecker roof proofing,” Haynes says. “I loved it. And that’s where we polished off Stop on the Bridge and wrote She Doesn’t Know.” The Perfect Match and friends will launch their CD this Friday at a special dinner, slide show, silent auction and dance and auction taking place at Thompson Rivers University this Friday, Nov. 30 to raise funds for longtime Chilcotin residents who are now volunteering in Peru. “DESEA Peru is a project put into place

LeRae Haynes (left) an Cindy Nadeau have been playing and writing music together in the lakecity for the past three years and just recorded their first CD Stop on the Bridge. They will launch the CD with a fundraising dance at Thompson Rivers University Friday evening for a family from the Chilcotin who are volunteering in Peru to provide health services and clean water for poor people in that country.

by Chilcotin residents Sandy Hart and Sandra McGirr,” Haynes says. “Sandra went to Peru as a volunteer registered nurse and worked to develop a rural nursing program. Sandy, with a background in hydrology and geology, went to help engineer and install household water filter systems.” Along with their two children, Niall and Tarn, Sandy and Sandra have spent the past four-and-a-half years in Peru. Haynes says that Sandra, who is coming home for the fundraiser, tells her that almost everyone in Peru lives in poverty. The average family has six to eight children and lives on an average of $2 a day. The area has the second-highest rate of mother and infant mortality in South America caused by bacteria and parasites in the water, and people also suffer from severe malnutrition.  There are no phones or transportation; there is minimal health care, no running water, very little electricity, no bathrooms, and before DESEA Peru, there was no potable drinking water.  Nadeau says the DESEA project hits close to home for her. “We take basic things like water, food and health for granted, and for a family to uproot

and immerse themselves in making a difference like this takes dedication and selfless determination,” Nadeau says. “It shows true Cariboo Chilcotin grit and ingenuity. Putting on this event to coincide with our CD release made perfect sense to me.”    Dance for DESEA will feature a buffet meal, a great silent auction, a presentation by Sandra McGirr about their work in the Andes, live music by Perfect Match and friends, plus entertainment by local dancers. Tickets and more information are available at Hobbit House and Dandelion Living. According to their web site DESEA Perú is a registered Peruvian association based in the village of Lamay in the Sacred Valley of the Incas near Cusco. In indigenous communities in the adjacent mountains, DESEA Perú has undertaken a comprehensive program of household water treatment and community healthcare. The community health program involves operation of bi-weekly clinics in each community by a Canadian expandedpractice nurse and a Peruvian community nurse; engagement of two trained community health workers in each

community to assist with family education and community health needs; and on-going education for families, community groups, and schools in water filter operation, hygiene and sanitation practices, nutrition, and community health. Workshops for construction of bio-sand water filters are operated by trained local residents with the volunteer assistance of community members who are to receive filters. In this way, smallscale enterprises are established and families and schools contribute to their own water treatment systems. Tickets to the fundraiser Friday evening are $20 for adults and $10 for children and students. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the slideshow presentation is at 6 p.m.
