Beyond the season of charity – BCers want leaders to bring down poverty Nearly 95 per cent of British Columbians donate to charity and this is the time of year that many charities appeal to the public’s compassion towards the less fortunate. But according to recent polling, British Columbians expect leadership for more permanent solutions to poverty. Seventy eight percent of British Columbians say that it’s important or very important for political leaders in BC to address poverty, according to a recent poll conducted on behalf of the BC Healthy Living Alliance. A provincial poverty reduc-

tion plan with clear targets and timelines to reduce the number of British Columbians living below the poverty line’ was the most popular response. British Columbians were asked to consider a number of health measures that leaders should act on now. Last week, the BC Healthy Living Alliance brought people from around the province together in an on-line forum to discuss income and health and a poverty reduction plan for BC. Trish Garner with the BC Poverty Reduction Coalition

said, “current income assistance rates leave people structurally dependent on food banks and other charities but they still struggle day-to-day to meet the most basic needs. Legislated targets and timelines have been used in other provinces to reduce poverty. We can do it here in BC too. But it will require leadership and accountability.” Ted Bruce, Executive Director of Population Health for Vancouver Coastal Health, described how “the gaps in health, attributed to inequality, are costly to the health care system.

$1.2 billion in costs could be avoided each year if people in the lowest income group were making the same as those just one level up.” “Our polling shows that the public understands the relationship between poverty and health. More importantly, they expect government to act on the facts,” said Scott McDonald, BCHLA Chair and CEO of the BC Lung Association. British Columbia currently has the highest provincial poverty rate. It is one of only two provinces without a provincial poverty reduction plan.

NEWS Clean sweep for the holidays

I’m lucky this year. Both of my sons and my daughter-in-law are coming home for Christmas. In anticipation I started airing their rooms, putting on fresh bedding and dusting. And then things started to get out of hand. Have you ever noticed how a house that feels pretty clean gets dirtier the more you clean it? You sweep the floor and then realize it could use a mopping. While you’re mopping you notice the baseboards could use a wiping. This leads to washing walls and pretty soon you’re scrubbing down the tops of cupboards and doors. After that it’s just a matter of time before Q-tips and old toothbrushes are called into action. I think it was Erma


Bombeck who claimed that housework, if done properly, will kill you. The weirdest thing about my cleaning frenzy is that I am cleaning the house to impress my own children. You know what this children have achieved guest status. The same children who helped throw clutter under the couch when unexpected company pulled in the driveway. The same children I

once waged epic weekend battles with over cleaning their rooms. The same children who are as likely to inspect their bedroom door tops for dust as they are to set their heads on fire. What’s more, it won’t last. Within an hour of their arrival all the cleaning will have come undone. But such is the nature of housecleaning. It has often occurred to me that it would make more sense to clean house after an event instead of before. Once the guests have infiltrated the building with their scattered coats, boots and bags you scarcely see any surfaces. In a matter of moments of gathering around the table there are crumbs on the floor and beverages being

Happy Holidays

spilled. Wouldn’t be great if it was socially acceptable to hand your guests cleaning paraphernalia as the party was wrapping up? Dust rags for Grandpa, a vacuum cleaner for Grandma, some Windex and cloths for your siblings. The tall Uncles could take care of those door and cupboard tops in no time. Good friends might even clean the bathroom. It would be sort of like an old fashioned barn raising only better...because they’re cleaning your house and you don’t have a cow. As a result of the rampant stress in today’s society, studies show people no longer entertain, or even get together for coffee, the way we used to. At the end of a long work week the last thing

most people feel like doing is making their house guest worthy. House cleaning parties could change all of that. We could get the face time we’ve been missing and a sparkling house in the bargain. I’ve often thought the same concept could be applied to garden tours. As visitors come through the gate they would be handed a tool and their instructions. No one leaves without at least pulling a dozen weeds. Think of the earth you could move, the rocks you could pack and the deadheading that could be done over the course of the day with a hundred helping hands! It would be educational too. You’d actually be doing your visitors a service. Sadly, that’s not how most humans are wired.


Testing new drugs requires seeing how they might affect body organs like the liver, kidney and heart. They use live subjects in this testing. The National Institute of Health in the U.S. is funding research into 3-D tissue chips using living cells that model the structure and function of the real organs. Once developed, these chips will be used to test new drugs and result in bringing them to market faster. The words “cold chain” refer to the need to keeping vaccines and certain antibiotics cold (2-8°C) from manufacturing to administration. This is important when shipping products overseas because half of the vaccines are lost due to exposure to heat. A new idea using silk as a stabilizer in the product will allow a greater range of temperature variations. Should be in use in about five years. We get kind of smug in Canada thinking that being overweight is more an American problem. But today, 59% of Canadians are either overweight or obese. By 2026 this is expected to reach 70%. Now is the time to do something about it.

It’s certainly not how I am wired anyway. In the unlikely event I even considered hiring a housekeeper, I would still end up spending the week before cleaning the place myself so he/she wouldn’t think I was a slob. And I would be more comfortable running naked down Main Street than asking guests to help clean my house. Unless...unless those guests were my own children. Oh my goodness! I have completely messed up. Or rather, I have completely cleaned up. Instead I could have handed my children/ guests cleaning tools as an early Christmas gift; a gift to me, but a gift all the same. Ah well, it might be too late for the precleaning but it’s definitely a tantalizing idea

for the day before they leave. If nothing else it will make the day of parting easier for all of us. They’ll be tripping over themselves and their dust cloths to get out of here while I will have a sparkling house to admire in their wake. Though the truth is I am a bit like that Monica character on the old sitcom Friends. Obviously not in looks but in character. I use cleaning the house as therapy. When the kids leave it helps to wield a few cleaning weapons over the next couple days to help fill the silence and the ache. And if they leave a few thoughtless messes behind, so much the better. It looks like they’ll be retaining their newfound guest status. For now.

In camera meetings called into question Secret or in camera meetings are becoming too routine at city halls, school boards and police boards across the province with little if any oversight regarding the justifications for such meetings and no penalties for violating the statues that permit them, according to IntegrityBC. The organization is calling on local B.C. councils and boards to take Toronto’s lead and institute an open data policy as one check on the practice. Toronto’s data policy allows citizens to verify

meeting attendance, the total time councils meet in closed session, the number of items considered, and the number of closed sessions themselves. The organization is also calling on the B.C. government to amend the Community Charter to set penalties if the privilege of holding in camera meetings is abused, allow for citizens to request an independent investigation into a meeting they believe was improperly held in camera, and to reduce the number of reasons that permit in camera meet-

ings in the first place. IntegrityBC noted that Toronto, whose 45 member city council oversees an annual budget of $1.9 billion and 50,000 employees, has met 12 times in camera in 2012 for less than 10 hours to discuss 24 items (to 2 November). The in camera sessions represent five per cent of the total time council has sat during this period. In contrast, Central Saanich with a seven member council and an operating budget of $32.2 million has met 17 times in camera for at least nine hours

and 15 minutes in 2012, according to a review of its council minutes. “Ontario’s Ombudsman has gone so far as to propose jail time for councillors who hold unnecessary in camera meetings,” said IntegrityBC executive director Dermod Travis. “The B.C. government could at least start by putting some teeth into the law through penalties escalating from fines, removal from office to barring councillors from running for public office in the future.”

To our family, friends and clients, the very best the season has to offer.

Season’s Greetings, as again over two billion Christians celebrate an obscure birth that happened in a little town outside of Jerusalem called Bethlehem. Why all the fuss over a Jewish baby boy born to poor peasant parents over two thousand years ago? Historically, this baby grew up to be known as Jesus. Today, worldwide he is the most dominant person to have ever lived on the planet. The famous writer, C.S. Lewis, an atheist turned Christian said that Jesus was either the God he claimed to be in human flesh or he is the greatest imposter the world has ever seen. Which is it? Here are a couple facts to consider about this baby in the manger. Many ancient prophecies predicted the arrival of a Jewish messiah, one specifically pinpointed the town of Bethlehem. Another prophecy, by the prophet Daniel five hundred years beforehand, specifically indicated that his death would be at the Passover of AD 31. The life of Jesus perfectly fulfills these and hundreds of other predictions about the coming savior king. Jesus himself said, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” Then there are the miracles, impossible healings of lepers, men born blind given their sight, the dead being raised back to life. In fact, three days after his lynching on a cross, he came back to life. Hundreds of people saw him alive after his death


BY CAMERON JOHNSTON and Christians believe he is still living today! The good news and the heart of the Christmas story is that the baby in the manger brings with him the favor of God for everyone willing to receive and accept him.The message recorded in Luke 1:30 specifically given to Mary, was also for all mankind. “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God.” NIV “Greetings! The Lord is with you; you are very special to him.” ERV Mary was favored and given the unique blessing and responsibility of being the human connection in the birth of the one and only divine-

human son of God, Jesus Christ. In accepting this profound gift and unique role among humans, Mary became an example of how the grace of God is given to fallen human beings – simply as a free and gracious gift. The birth, life and death of Jesus takes the love of God and his affection for humans to a whole new level. Now every imperfect, hurting and rebellious human can hear and experience those profound words, do not be afraid, you have found favor with God. This is the gospel that Jesus brought that first Christmas. The same angel said to Joseph, “What is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. . .give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins. . . they will call him Immanuel which means, “God with us.” Matthew 1:20-23 The sin from which we need to be saved is the rebellion and separation from God that has plagued our planet with selfishness since our first parents refused to love and trust God. The good news is that God has made a way of escape through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Peace and joy, come with the gift of the season, the person of Jesus real and practical in your life. Through Him we have favor with God. Receive Him and enjoy the gift today.

Keep kids safe during winter sports Keeping kids safe during winter sports all about planning and protection say the BC Children’s Hospital nd BC Ambulance Service in offering tips for parents. Kids need to wear the right and appropriatelysized protective equipment when participating in any winter sport. A properly fitted, CSA-approved helmet approved for specific sports such as skiing,

hockey, snowboarding, tobagganing, or biking should be worn at all times. Wrist guards are also a good idea for snowboarders since sprains and fractures are a commonly-experienced injury. Make sure kids learning a new activity get proper instruction and stay within their individual skill level. For sports that in-

volve going downhill, make sure kids know how to control their speed and stop properly, especially if they are just learning or have not mastered certain skills. When picking a slope for tobogganing, make sure it is away from roads and free from obstacles like rocks, trees, and fences. Younger children should always be supervised by an adult. Never ride on a


sled that is being pulled by anything motorized. Know the environment and the surrounding area where kids are going to be in when playing sports. Local authorities will often help determine if ice is thick enough for out-

door skating. Stay in bounds when skiing/ snowboarding. Parents and caregivers should learn first aid. More information is available from HealthLink BC atwww.  or by calling 8-1-1.

Thank you family & friends for making our anniversary so special. Thanks for all your help and the gifts and lovely cards.

Be fire safe this holiday season While the incidence of fire increases during the holiday season due to greater use of natural Christmas trees, decorations and electric lighting, Canadians are taking further risks as more than 29 per cent of homeowners admit they don’t have a fire extinguisher in their home, according to an RBC Insurance survey. “Between shopping for gifts and attending holiday parties, the last thing you want to worry about is your house being damaged by a fire,” explains Tim Bzowey, vice-president, Home & Auto, RBC Insurance. “Luckily there are some precautionary

measures you can take to help keep your family safe this holiday season.” • Keep your tree securely tethered and away from any and all heat sources. This includes electrical outlets, space heaters, radiators and fireplaces. • Do not leave Christmas lights on all night. Unplug the tree lights and any other lighting before leaving your home or going to bed. The lights could short out and start a fire. • Choose decorations that are flame-retardant, non-combustible and non-conductive. For example, do not use metallic ornaments on the

tree, as they could make contact with defective wiring and become a shock hazard. • Closely monitor flame burning candles. Avoid using candles on windowsills; particularly those that have curtains, as even the smallest drafts are capable of

spreading a flame. • Make sure fireplaces and chimneys are properly cleaned and maintained. Have a professional inspect your fireplace annually for any cracks and always use a screen in front of your fireplace while it is burning.

Dix seeks balance with business NDP leader Adrian Dix has completed year-end interviews with members of the legislative press gallery. Here are highlights from my discussion with him. On the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline expansion proposal, federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair says the federal environmental process would have to be strengthened before a project like that could get a thorough enough hearing. Do you agree? AD: The B.C. Liberal government has signed an equivalency agreement that says that the federal decision is the provincial decision on these projects. If it applies to Enbridge Northern Gateway, presumably the B.C. Liberals would apply it to Kinder Morgan. They could have done a joint process, where [the final decision] would have gone to both cabinets. They chose instead to give up jurisdiction. They were so afraid of making any decision on Northern Gateway that they sent it over to the federal government. So what we’ve said is within a week of coming to office, we would end that equivalency agreement, and British Columbia would make decisions about both Enbridge Northern Gateway, which applied in May 2010, and any other pipeline, including the Kinder Morgan proposal, for which no application has been made. Obviously it would have been desirable for everyone had they chosen a true joint review, as they have in Site C [dam proposed for Peace River], as they did with Kemess North [rejected mine expansion proposal] and other cases. TF: You don’t want du-


plicated review processes here, you just want a provincial cabinet say in the decision? AD: That’s right. TF: On your relationship with the B.C. Federation of Labour, your caucus is considering a proposal that B.C. should once again do away with secret ballots for union certification. AD: The B.C. Fed makes a case to the government on a series of issues on employment standards every year. Labour law, every year. WorkSafeBC, every year. Trades and training, every year. With respect to [accepting signed union cards for certification], it is a democratic process that the Newfoundland Conservative government just put into place a few months ago. So it’s a proposal from the labour movement and we’re looking at it. For most of B.C.’s modern history, since World War II, we’ve had that cardcheck system in place. The question would be whether [returning to that system] is a priority for this term in government. TF: So those kinds of things will be made clear in your platform? AD: Absolutely. TF: You picked up some serious money from the

business community at a fundraiser in October. Is that some kind of a record for the NDP? AD: [Laughs.] It might be a record, I don’t know. I think the business fundraiser we did at the Hotel Vancouver netted $350,000. I think what it reflects is, this year I’ve had about 230 meetings with the business community. The purpose of it has been principally to build understanding, particularly on issues of skills training. With the priority I give to skills training, I think I’m much more attuned to their concerns than

the government has been. TF: I suppose that kind of success in fundraising might make it more difficult to follow through with your pledge to ban corporate and union donations.</I> AD: I don’t think so. The B.C. Liberal Party has a very high level of corporate donations as a percentage of its total. We’re overwhelmingly dependent on individual donations.

Polar Bear Swim kicks off a new year For those brave enough, or even those who just want to come out and witness the spectacle, the 13th annual Williams Lake Rustlers Rugby Football Club’s is coming up Jan. 1 at Scout Island. Swim organizer Brad Bulow, said there’s really no better way to ring in the new year. Close to 100 swimmers annually experience the ice-cold waters of Williams Lake. “Everyone’s welcome,” Bulow said. “Sign up is at 12:30 p.m. Take the plunge at 1 p.m.” Proceeds go toward youth rugby programs

in Williams Lake. Participants are asked to collect pledges with some interesting results. “There are guys who have, in the past, done a by-the-minute pledge where they’ll go around and ask people if they’d be willing to pledge them for $10 a minute or something, and they’ll stay in the lake for four minutes, and get a $40 donation,” he said. “This year the Williams Lake Boy Scouts are going to be a part of it, too. The boys I guess told their leaders they were interested in doing the swim and fundraising and they got a hold

of me, and they’ll be donating half of what they raise to youth rugby and the other half will go to scouts.” Prizes will be awarded for best costumes, high pledge earners and more. The Rustlers have put out a request for a lifeguard and notified the BC Ambulance Service to be on hand just in case. Hot beverages will be served. semi-

trailer warming huts are also employed.. Bulow says swimmers should bring a change of warm clothes, two towels, two pairs of shoes and a lawn chair to use in the warming trailers. If anyone is interested in volunteering for the event they are asked to contact Bulow at 250267-1725 as volunteer positions are still available.

Five things anyone can do to end violence against women 1. Listen to women and believe them. It is extremely rare for a woman to make up a story about violence. You may be the first and only person she tells. Believe her and support her decisions, without being judgmental. 2. Make violence your business. Keeping violence against women private helps no one. If you believe someone is being abused -- ask them. They might not tell you right away, but

it will send a signal that you are someone they can trust. Don’t put yourself in danger by intervening in a violent situation. Call the police. 3. Raise non-violent children. Talk to the children in your life about violence. Help them find nonviolent ways of resolving conflict. 4. Help girls protect themselves. Help the girls in your life develop confidence and strong self-esteem. Let them know they’re important as individuals, in or out

of a relationship. Talk frankly to them about sex and dating, stressing respect and their right to choose. 5. Encourage people who commit vio-

lence to get help. Don’t judge. Let them know their behavior is unacceptable and that there are counsellors and support groups to help them change.

REALTOR TIPS BURGLARY PREVENTION FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON • It is best not to leave a spare key outside, but if you must, choose a spot far from the front door, or better yet with a trustworthy neighbour. • Invest in an alarm system, if you can’t afford one you can get official looking stickers for you doors and windows at the hardware store in the meantime. • Most burglaries occur during the day when people are at work. Turn on a radio or tv to make it sound like someone is home • Use an automatic timer to turn on lights, radios or televisions on and off in realistic patterns. • Make it look like you are home, stop delivery of mail and newspapers, and have someone shovel snow.

News Operation Red Nose a holiday resource

madd wishes for a responsible holiday

Mothers Against Drunk Driving held a multi-media presentation recently at Columneetza secondary with help from principal Gregg Gaylord and Chaouki Hamka, the MADD representative for Western Canada pictured here with Andrea MacDonald who came to the event with her daughter, Rilla, and a picture of her daughter, Rayel, who was killed earlier this year in a motor vehicle incident. “They were so strong, so brave,” says local MADD co-ordinator Pam Herman. “Andrea really wanted to let the students know that they have a lot of power, power to change things, and to not drink and drive or allow their friends to. We gave out red ribbons and asked them to tie them on an antenna of a vehicle of someone they love, someone they did not want to lost to impaired driving.” MADD is also selling bracelets and keychains at Excelsior Jewellers.

If you drink alcohol and don’t feel fit to drive, call a relative, a friend, a cab or Operation Red Nose at 250-392-2222. This is the message that the Rotary Club of Williams Lake is extending to the community during the upcoming Operation Red Nose campaign which will be operational each Friday and Saturday evening from Nov. 30 to Dec. 31. In Canada, this year, an impressive 90 plus host organizations will provide the Operation Red Nose service. Teams of three volunteers will travel our communities’ roads and highways again this year in order to provide a simple and accessible way for their fellow citizens to ar-

A family Christmas tradition that has embraced a communityfor 14 years continues to support kids and families at 142 Country Club Blvd. this Christmas season in Williams Lake. The 139 Christmas House is alight with whimsical and entertaining displays that include a penguin ice rink, an elaborate gingerbread house, a Santa tree fort, the 139 Express and a bird house collection box for the 139 Children’s Fundraising Society. Ken and Julia Berry have been decorating their home for Christmas for 25 years—a tradition that evolved 14 years ago into a unique support for local kids and their families when they need to travel for medical treatment. The project started with Ken and Julia and their kids, and now includes three ‘Berry’ generations when grandkids are home for the holidays. The 139 Christmas House has raised $16,000 for local kids, and Ken Berry explained that they’re getting close to their longtime goal of $20,000. It’s a constantly evolving project, with fun new displays right through the first week of January. LeRae Haynes photo

Williams Lake Weekend Friday, December 21, 2012


Nature Centre needs a new furnace Williams Lake and District Credit Union’s Community Investment Fund supports local nonprofit organizations and community groups with projects and initiatives that contribute to economic revitalization and improved quality of life. The fund’s recent generous donation kicks off Scout Island Nature Centre’s latest fundraising campaign, say project organizers. The funds will bring Scout Island and the Williams Lake Field Naturalists closer to achieving a much needed energy upgrade. An ageing oil furnace, tired out from 30-plus years of warming the Nature House, is being replaced with a cleanerburning, more efficient, emissions-free electric furnace and Energy-Star rated heat pump. New insulation will make the building warmer in winter and cooler in summer, not to A21

This Week’s Crossword Lyndsey Carter, retail loans officer/community investment fund member (left) joins CEO Jim Zimmerman in presenting a cheque for $1,250 to Sue Hemphill (centre) of Scout Island Nature Centre. Photo submitted mention cheaper to heat and easier to keep clean. The little ones in the Discovery Pre-School will enjoy warmer basement quarters thanks to improved ducting. As you can imagine, this is not an inexpensive project. Scout Island’s staff and volunteers are hard at work writing grant proposals, but these sources typically only cover part of

the costs. This community has shown that it values what Scout Island adds to our way of life, and we hope that groups and individuals will again contribute what they can to help us function more sustainably. If you would like to help us upgrade the Nature House, please send a cheque payable to Scout Island Nature

Centre, 1305A Borland Rd, WL V2G 5K5. As always, you will receive a charitable receipt for tax purposes, and if you decide to make your donation in someone else’s name we will give you a gift card. This would be a welcome holiday treat for the nature lover who has everything.

U-SHAPED STAIRWAY This two-bedroom home, designed for a lot that slopes to the back, includes an unfinished basement that will provide lots of room for a growing family or space for an in-law suite or mortgage-helper. A covered entry, flanked by wood pilasters with brick bases, leads into the foyer. To the left is a coat closet, and further along the corridor, a three-piece bathroom. Past the U-shaped stairway to the unfinished basement are the great room, dining area and kitchen. The great room’s vaulted ceiling lends it a touch of drama. Deep windows look out to a covered deck and the back garden beyond, and a gas fireplace will cast its rosy glow as far as the kitchen and dining room, which has access to the deck through sliding glass doors. The kitchen is separated from the great room and dining room by a large island that contains the dishwasher. Natural light will illuminate the area near the double sink, and the U-shaped counter configuration will save steps for the cook. A corner pantry will provide always-welcome storage space. The master suite overlooks the back garden for privacy, and includes a spacious ensuite with double sinks and a shower stall, as well as a soaker tub with a tiled surround for added spa-like luxury. The walkin closet, reached through the ensuite, will be roomy enough for even the most fashion-conscious couple’s clothing.

A linen closet is located near the laundry room, which will double as a mud room, thanks to the coat closet and access to the double garage. Ceiling heights throughout measure nine feet. On the exterior, narrow horizontal siding and painted trim, along with wooden shingles in the gables and brick accents, lend the home a charming cottagey look. This 1,470 square foot home measures 42 feet by 55 feet. Plans for design 1-2-647 are available for $664 (set of 5), $745(set of 8) and $792 for a super set of 10.

DON’T DRINK & DRIVE B.C.’s drinking-driving laws are saving lives Two years after B.C. introduced Canada’s toughest provincial impaired driving law, an estimated 104 lives have been saved and impaired driving has dropped significantly.

Police in B.C. can issue an immediate roadside prohibition to an impaired driver with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .05 or higher. (The BAC is based on a breath sample into a roadside screening device.) The vehicle the person is driving can also be immediately taken off the road and impounded for three to 30 days. Costs related to these offences can add up to an estimated $600 to $4,060 - even if it’s the first time a driver is caught.

MADD’s mission is to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime.

250-398-3328 • 318 N. Broadway

MADD offers programs for victims’ services, public awareness, legal research, chapter services and youth services.
