New year serves up hectic calendar

From provincial election to 50th anniversary of Silver City Days BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

It wasn’t the end of the world as we knew it, as prognosticated by pundits citing doom at the end of the mesoamerican (Mayan) calendar on Dec. 21. So most of us are feeling fine now as we look ahead to what 2013 holds for Greater Trail residents. Like a May B.C. provincial election or the return of the provincial sales tax, both slated for an appearance on the calendar this spring. It’s no fooling. On April 1 B.C. will change the way its sales taxes are administered, splintering the Harmonized Sales Tax back into two pieces: the Provincial Sales Tax and the Government Sales Tax. Six weeks later polling, policy and predictions roll into the polls for the B.C. election, with Christy Clark’s Liberals preparing to defend what has been a rocky road and record since she assumed the premiership almost two years ago. Whomever wins, the election coincides with the Chinese Year of the Snake, that begins Feb. 10, four days before the election. Draw any inferences you feel are appropriate. This year will be an academic one for local school trustees as the board of School District 20 (Kootenay Columbia) will be schooled on possibility of shutting down both Rossland Secondary School and Castlegar Elementary School on Feb. 25. The board will be well rested to make their decision, however, by taking in the first B.C. Family Day holiday on Monday, Feb. 11—after the premier created the new day of rest last year. Greater Trail residents will likely say farewell to the Zellers store in the Waneta Mall in March, after the nation-wide chain was sold to Target Canada last year. Unlike many of the locations, Trail will not be receiving a Target store in the old location for 2013. But the chain says additional stores will open in

2014 and Trail could be on that short list. The year could hold the answer in one of the more bitter disputes in the Greater Trail region over who pays what in the delivery of water and sewer services. The arbitration case is now before the province, pitting the cities of Rossland and Trail against each other. In February, 2013 Trail will play host to the best in curling from across the province as the senior men’s and women’s provincials descend on the Silver City. The event could be a preview to who will win the national or world championship. And with the Trail Smoke Eaters in the playoff hunt in the BCHL right now, this year could also put an end to their one-year hiatus from post season play in March. May marks the 50th anniversary of Silver City Days, the city’s venerable and popular spring festival in the downtown. On the hill, Teck Trail Operations is expected to complete its $125 million No. 1 Acid Plant this year. This project consists of building a new acid plant to replace two older acid plants, significantly improving the company’s operational reliability and environmental performance. And if refuting the Mayan predictions was not enough, Kevin Costner’s “Postman”—filmed at nearby Metaline Falls, Wash.,—that saw global society collapses and nuclear war has crippling civilization, was set in 2013. Unless the bombs are en route, this scenario is unlikely to play out soon. And in closing, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation says it’s going to be an expensive New Year for Greater Trail residents, who will face tax hikes on everything from health care to property, along with an increase in hydro rates. Medical service premiums in the province are expected to rise for the fourth straight year, with the family rate jumping to $133 per month, up $60. B.C. Hydro rates will rise almost four per cent on April 1, and municipal property taxes will jump in most B.C. cities in July.



The proper technique for weight lifting is essential for those embarking on a New Year’s resolution to get into better shape or lose weight, says personal trainer Barb Shields, left, who instructs new gym inductees Brady Shields, middle, and Joel Williamson at Performance Fitness. Jody Fors’ gym on Cedar Avenue has been a hub of activity for those looking for a fresh start on the new year, but they always have room for one more.

City of Trail utility rates climb BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

New Year’s Day ushered in 2013, but it also marked a jump in utility rates in Trail. City council approved hiking the rates for the new year for garbage collection and water and sewer, adding up to a total $16.10 increase for the 2013 year. The total utility bill for a

Trail resident will increase to $669.10 for the year, a rise from the $653 in 2012—and works out to an increase of $1.34 per month. The increase could be minimized for Trail residents, however, by paying the utility bill early. There’s a 7.5 per cent discount for paying before the end of February. That would lower the total bill to $619, a $50 dif-

ference in the total utility bill. “By taking an incremental and long term approach we are protecting ratepayers against significant increases in any one year,” said councillor Kevin Jolly, who chairs the general government and finance committee. The cost for garbage collection and disposal is going See NEW, Page 3

Whether it was held outside by the Esplanade or inside the Cominco Gym, the Trail market proved to be a popular addition for the public and business alike. people, said councillor Kevin Jolly. For someone who was no longer with the chamber, Jolly gave the for-

mer executive director accolades. “I think it needs to be said out loud that ( Maggie Stayanovich)

Grand finale with a grand slam

Thank you!

Deadline: 11am 1 day prior to publication.

The Trail Outdoor Market was the success story of 2012, says the city’s mayor. Dieter Bogs said the market managed to turn a profit for the city after completion of its first year, with over 300 vendors attending 10 market events, and over 6,000 people coming through in the course of the season. A cheque for the amount of $2,743.04 was handed over to the city after the last market of the year on Dec. 14 in the Cominco Gymnasium. The total profit— accrued from vendor permits—was split between the city and the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce. With a total revenue

of $6,080, the market went from 15 vendors at its inaugural market in June, to over 44 during the summer months, finishing with 62 in December. “The (market) committee had high expectations of having 20 vendors by the end of the season, which was met by the second market,” said former chamber executive director Maggie Stayanovich who sent a letter to council. The markets ran every second Friday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the Esplanade. The increasing number of vendors had stretched the market from the corner of Spokane Street and the Esplanade into Jubilee Park. The market was a result of a collective action of numerous

Program helping communities meet carbon neutral goal

Support from Shoppers

By Timothy Schafer Times Staff

Submitted photo

On Pledge Day, Shoppers Drug Mart owner Linda Seib (centre) presented a $1,534 donation in support of Digital Mammography. Proceeds were generated through the Tree of Life Campaign.  KBRH Health Foundation representatives Carol Schlender, chair (left) and Janet Goth, director (right) accepted this donation.

New communications coordinator hired FROM PAGE 1 up about four per cent, while residential water service is increasing two per cent, or about $6. Sewer service costs to taxpayers will increase 2.3 per cent, or nearly $6. The annual lump sum to be paid for garbage and waste after Feb. 28 will be $110 per individual dwelling unit per year, with an early bird discount of $8 at $102 before Feb. 28. “It is noted that the garbage fee is self funding and the fees totally cover the costs of providing the service,” said Jolly. Council remains committed to enhancing investment on infrastructure, said Jolly, and the water budget reflected a 3.36 per cent increase in capital expenditures for the year. For sewer, the budget was calling for a 2.5 per cent increase. “The increase is slightly

higher than water, due to the fact the overall user fee collection is lower and the revenue generation capacity is lower as well,” said Jolly. Capital funding in the sewer funding has been increased by three per cent to reflect the need to replace and repair the aging infrastructure. New hire The city has hired a new communications and events coordinator. As of today Andrea Jolly (no relation to councillor Kevin Jolly) will take over the role of keeping the citizens of Trail informed of what is happening and going on in the city. “Andrea comes to the city with a diverse background and skill set in marketing, communications from Teck Resources Ltd.,” said Kevin Jolly.

She was a marketing and communications coordinator with the business development group at Teck. As well, Andrea served as the marketing coordinator with B.C. Ferries, and also has other experience in the private sector with marketing and communications. Her focus will be on enhancing communications activities the city has with the public on a daily basis. In addition, Andrea will fill a significant void in the area of events coordination and will directly coordinate citysponsored events. “She will also be a community asset as far as being a secondary resource for other events in the city where there is a public benefit,” said Kevin. Andrea will also be handling the city’s Facebook site as well as its webpage.

Nothing like keeping it local. A new Carbon Neutral Kootenays program administered by three regional districts is helping local governments meet their carbon neutral commitments and keep money in the Kootenays. Through a joint procurement of Kootenay-based offsets, 12 local governments have signed on to commit to buying Kootenay-based carbon offsets together, meaning the local municipalities and regional districts will save again while keeping the investment in the region. A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide or greenhouse gases made in order to compensate for or to offset an emission made elsewhere. The purchase of the carbon offset credits allows the local governments to reach their goal of attaining carbon neutrality, said Regional District of Central Kootenay chair John Kettle. “While it is not realistic for us to completely eliminate fossil fuels from our operations, we can take responsibility for reducing our emissions and keep those investments in the Kootenays,” he said in a press release. The regional districts of Kootenay-Boundary (RDKB) and East Kootenay (RDEK) are also involved, as are the cities of Trail, Rossland and Greenwood, and the municipalities of Fruitvale, Kaslo, Midway, Slocan and Invermere. Earlier this week the Village of Montrose signed on for the purchase of carbon credits. A carbon credit is any tradable certificate or permit that gives the holder the right to emit one tonne of greenhouse gas (usually carbon dioxide). There are many companies that sell carbon credits—realized from individual “green” projects—to commercial and individual customers interested in lowering their carbon footprint. By working together over the last four years, local governments across the Columbia Basin and Boundary areas are estimated to have saved up to $750,000 on energy in their own operations, said Larry Gray, chair of the RDKB.

“We are saving energy, emissions and money in our operations through actions such as retrofits,” he said. “We are piloting approaches to save emissions in our communities such as organics diversion. Becoming carbon neutral is one part of that commitment.” For the three Kootenays-based regional districts and 28 member municipalities, the combined carbon footprint for the corporate operations of these local governments (2008) is approximately 21,000 tonnes of CO2e per year, according to a July, 2010 report “Carbon Offsets for Kootenay Local Governments.” Purchasing offsets for these emissions will cost approximately $525,000 annually, it was found, beginning in early 2013 for the 2012 year. What those local projects will be is not known, however. In the report, identifying local offset projects was a primary goal of local governments and it was expected that the demand for offsets for the next few years would exceed the available supply. “There is not a simple system (e.g. a map, or screening tool) that could be used to define the possibilities for offset projects,” wrote Ron Macdonald and Dale Littlejohn in their report. “As more protocols become developed, it may be possible to use other data (land use, census stats, etc.) to conduct some form of screening for offset projects.” Carbon Neutral Kootenays (CNK) project is a multi-year effort supporting local governments and First Nations that are working towards becoming carbon neutral. The project is focused on reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from municipal, regional and First Nations’ corporate operations. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions at this level and scale is unique and involves 28 Kootenay municipalities, five First Nation communities and three regional districts. CNK is funded jointly by Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) and the regional districts of Central Kootenay, East Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary.

Provincial/National Kelowna swimmer completes ice mile THE CANADIAN PRESS KELOWNA, B.C. A Kelowna athlete has braved the frigid waters of a southern B.C. Interior lake to join an exclusive club of global ice swimmers. Paul Duffield may well be the first Canadian to swim 1.6 kilometres - dubbed the “Ice Mile” - in water colder than 5 C sporting only a swimsuit and cap. The 43-year-old joined on Sunday a list of 25 people who have completed that distance worldwide. The swimmer decided to take the plunge after reading about the International Ice Swimming Association last January, and he kept the goal in mind while training for a swim across the English Channel that’s coming next summer. Duffield emerged

with bright red skin from Gellatly Bay in Okanagan Lake to the cheers of two dozen supporters, and did not need assistance from waiting paramedics. He says it was as much a mental challenge as a physical feat. “It certainly is an extreme challenge,” he said. “The physical is obviously the pain of the cold. If you are not mentally prepared, then the physical will just take over and you won’t succeed.” After the swim, his wife helped him put on a fleece jacket and toque while drinking hot sports liquids. He placed hot water bottles under each arm, then put on a ski jacket, sweatpants and snow boots. Duffield immediately climbed into a vehicle with its heat-

er on full and was whisked away to his nearby home to complete the warming process. “Clockwork,” said Mark Fromberg, a doctor who monitored Duffield’s progress from the shoreline. “You couldn’t ask for a better result. I knew he could do this, he’s been training really well. ... It takes a special bit of discipline to stay calm in this kind of circumstance, but Paul has the right kind of demeanour to do that. It’s all about mental control.” John Smirl, an Okanagan Masters Swim Club coach, encouraged Duffield from a kayak and documented a distance of 1.75 kilometres in a time of 36:50. “The stroke looked really, really good the whole time,” he said.

“He was very conversant, coherent. It was the best possible scenario. That was a really, really well-done swim. It was awesome.” Duffield took advice from U.S. cold water swimmer Lynne Cox, who said in her book, Swimming to Antarctica: “If you focus on the cold, you’re focusing on something that is not going to get you to where you want to be.” Duffield said he’s heard two words from people the week before Sunday’s swim: “Crazy” and “why?” “Am I insane? Maybe,” he said with a chuckle before the swim. “I don’t know. I passed a physical earlier in the week, so physically I’m prepared for it. Mentally? “There may still be a few questions to answer there.”

Notable quotes from 2012 THE CANADIAN PRESS A list, in chronological order, of some of the notable quotes from Canadian news events in 2012: “If the NDP actually has any information, we challenge those members to give that information to the authorities. We have yet to see it and no reason to believe them.” - Prime Minister Stephen Harper in the House of Commons on Feb. 28 in response to a question from New Democrat interim leader Nycole Turmel about the so-called robocalls affair. “Our future is limitless if we get our priorities right.” - Newly elected NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, speaking after he won the leadership in Toronto on March 24. “I need a bonus for this.” Kelly, a handywoman who didn’t want her last name used as she contemplated the prospect of cleaning a blood-spattered Montreal apartment on May 30 that was rented by alleged murderer Luka Rocco Magnotta and where police believe atrocious acts took place. “It’s time for people to wake up and stop loafing about. It’s lasted long enough. We heard them. We listened. They should stop. It’s costing the city a fortune. It makes no sense.” - Racecar driver Jacques Villeneuve on June 7 ripping into Quebec student protesters who he also called “rebels without a cause.” “It was almost like a little mini earthquake, like a big bang, and then gone. There was nothing there. Everything started to cave in, water was pouring out of the pipes.” - Heather Richer, who owned a restaurant in the Algo Centre Mall in Elliot Lake, Ont., and was at work when the roof collapse occurred on June 23. “If Alberta doesn’t sit down and talk about it, the project can’t go ahead. It’s as simple as that.” - B.C. Premier Christy Clark in a July 24 interview with The Canadian Press after the province issued its five conditions before B.C. will consider supporting Enbridge’s Northern Gateway project. “We feel like we didn’t lose, we feel like it was taken from us. It’s a shame in a game like that that was so important, the ref decided the result before it started.” - Captain Christine Sinclair says officials robbed Canadian women’s team of a semifinal win over the United States at the

Summer Olympics on Aug. 6. “I was astounded the more I heard about it, I just thought, ‘How in the name of God did anyone miss all of this?’ Well, the answer may be in the fact that security is just ridiculous. It’s Swiss cheese.” - Mike Taylor, lawyer for Sub-Lt. Jeffrey Paul Delisle, speaking on Oct. 24 after his client pleaded guilty to espionage charges. “I want to say this is for all the haters who thought I was just here for one or two years. I feel like I’m going to be here for a very long time.” - Justin Bieber after winning American Music Award for favourite pop/ rock male on Nov. 18. “Am I unhappy about the prospect? You bet I am. It’s absolutely something that torments me. But by the same token I have a long-term responsibility to this game and to the fans of the game to make sure we have a healthy product. Too many people are forgetting where we were 10 years ago. And the fact is we didn’t have a healthy game, and we had too many franchises that couldn’t continue. We did what we had to do in 2004 to make it right, and we’re focused with our owners on what we need to make this game healthy for our fans.” - Commissioner Gary Bettman is asked on Dec. 6 how he could justify cancelling another NHL season. “The most important benefit of this development is that it allows us as Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to stand tall and proud on the national stage, knowing that as our forebears persevered to etch an existence on the edge of the North Atlantic, so will we with unrelenting focus and steadfast determination overcome all obstacles and transform challenges into success.” - Premier Kathy Dunderdale of Newfoundland and Labrador on Dec. 17 after giving final approval to the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project. “I ask you to imagine how you would feel, put yourself in the shoes of one of the missing and murdered women and think how it would feel if you were dismissed, considered unworthy of attention by the majority of the people in your city. What if you were made to feel invisible, unworthy?” - former B.C. Court of Appeal judge Wally Oppal, who led B.C.’s inquiry into the Robert Pickton serial murder case, upon release of his report on Dec. 17.

After seven years, Harper remains a polarizing figure

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Stephen Harper, we hardly know you. Almost seven years after Harper led his Conservatives to office and ended more than a decade of uninterrupted Liberal power, the prime minister remains a polarizing figure who inspires a bewildering array of reactions. Steely ideologue, pragmatic centrist, unprincipled partisan: Harper’s political management has inspired all these descriptions - sometimes on the same file or issue. With political 2012 now in the books, Harper has finally completed his first full, unfettered year with a majority mandate. Are Canadians any wiser about the man and his Conservative party that are leading the country? “If success is measured by getting your agenda accomplished, I think for the most part they have. They’re making strides,” says Alex Marland, a political scientist at Memorial University in St. John’s, N.L., who

OBITUARIES Gary Bacon Gary Bacon of Castlegar, B.C. died peacefully December 25, 2012. Gary was born in Rossland, B.C. on March 29, 1948 to Margaret and Floyd Bacon. Gary leaves to mourn his death his wife Maria, his son Sean (Robyn) and their children Brittany and Brandon of Penticton; his daughter Peggy Maerz and her children Denise and Savannah of Kelowna and Armstrong; his sons Dennis (Gail); Ken and Raymond and many nieces and nephews. Gary was predeceased by his parents and his brothers Clifford and Wayne. Vigil services will be help at St. Rita’s Catholic Church on January 3rd, 2013, at 7 PM, with Mass of Christian Burial being celebrated by Fr. H. Clark and co-celebrated by David John on Jan. 4th, 2013, in Castlegar Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Rita’s Haiti School, care of St.Rita’s 513 7th Ave. Castlegar, V1N 1R3. Donations would be greatly appreciated by the family, as would expressions of sympathy. Gary’s family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to Drs, Hii, Schumacher and Jacobsen and the nursing staff of Interior Kootenay/ Boundary Palliative Care, and the many friends and family who supported Gary through his bout of cancer.

example to close out a year of mixed government signals and muddling along. Harper permitted a Chinese state-owned company to buy up a significant Canadianowned player in the Alberta oilpatch, but in so doing, he effectively barred further such ownership bids. Harper also attempted to turn the page on a multiyear propaganda exercise designed to sell Canadians on the F-35 stealth fighter. Government stonewalling over the ballooning cost of the developmental jet helped spark the 2011 election, when Conservatives said it was the only option and vowed to complete the purchase. The government announced on Dec. 12 that it was “hitting the reset button” - a term heard so often that day, it was surely tested extensively with focus groups - on the F-35 procurement. Conservatives took a pounding on the F-35 file for a variety of sins, from mismanagement to deceit - “incompetence tainted by arrogance,” in the words

of NDP Leader Tom Mulcair - but ultimately made the right call. Perhaps that was why Harper, usually an efficient but dour performer in the Commons, appeared uncommonly jovial in the final sitting days, unburdened at last of weighty decisions on foreign investment and military procurement. “I think the issues are getting rougher for them,” Bob Rae, the Liberal interim leader and former Ontario premier, said of the Conservatives and Harper in a year-end interview. But Harper, Rae argued, is “limited by the nature of his message and he’s limited by the kind of (political) movement that he felt he had to create.” If so, 2012 was a year that showed Harper testing the boundaries of those perceived limitations. On April 26, Harper’s government whip, Gordon O’Connor, led off the Conservative response to a private member’s bill (from a Conservative backbencher) that would have re-opened Canada’s abortion

debate. “I cannot understand why those who are adamantly opposed to abortion want to impose their beliefs on others by way of the Criminal Code,” O’Connor stated in a speech that cited the prime minister’s own feelings on the issue. “There is no law that says that a woman must have an abortion. No one is forcing those who oppose abortion to have one.” The legislation was defeated. And although much was made of the fact 10 cabinet ministers defied Harper and voted in favour of the bill, the message from the top was clear. On gun control, the Conservatives vanquished the long-gun registry that was such a touchstone for the party. Yet by autumn the government was clearly reining in any signs of firearms triumphalism, choosing to downplay developments such as the destruction of the registry data. Harper ended the year with a public rebuke of the government’s own, handpicked firearms advisory committee, which has been pushing for further easing of gun control regulations. Communications consultant Gerry Nicholls, a longtime conservative commentator and former colleague of Harper at the right-wing National Citizen’s Coalition, said 2012 tells him that Harper “is not a conservative prime minister or an ideological prime minister.” “If anything, his actions of the past year prove he’s first and foremost a pragmatic politician pursuing pragmatic political policies,” Nicholls said in an email. It was a year that saw several courts begin to chip away at the government’s punitive new suite of

mandatory minimum sentences, but no evidence of any softening in the Conservative “tough on crime” stance. An emphasis on expanding trade helped in part explain Harper’s extensive global travels, which included separate trips to China, India, Australia, Russia, Colombia and the Congo. Almost inextricable from trade was the government’s focus on resource extraction, pipelines, the oilpatch - and the demonization of those opposed to environmental deregulation. “ U n f o r t u n a t e l y, there are environmental and other radical groups that would seek to block this opportunity to diversify our trade,” Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver wrote last Jan. 9 in an open let-

ter that would set the government’s tone for the year. Perhaps not coincidentally, what would a year in Canadian politics be without the Conservative party battling its perceived institutional enemies? An ongoing investigation into fraudulent election calls from 2011 raised a great cloud of smoke, but as yet no fire - pending the outcome of an Elections Canada investigation into a seemingly widespread voter suppression scheme by parties unknown. The government fought the parliamentary budget officer, nursed new media grudges and lambasted environmentalists, “big union bosses,” the United Nations, immigrant “queue-jumpers” and crooked consultants.

Is gas the enviro-villain of 2013?


hey’re well on the way to stopping the expansion of oil exports to Asia. Now will B.C.’s American branch-plant environmental machine turn on natural gas? A couple of weeks ago I described the dispute between the Haisla Nation and the rest of the Coastal First Nations group over the pioneering of liquefied natural gas development on Haisla territory at Kitimat. Powerful chiefs of the Heiltsuk, Gitga’at, Haida and others in the so-called Great Bear Rainforest oppose the idea of kicking off a new LNG export industry without extending the hydro grid to support renewable power for the region. LNG is shaping up as B.C.’s largest-ever industrial project, if it gets built. And there are signs the American-directed environmental attack is swinging to our gas boom. Some in the Canadian media insist no such U.S. influence exists, or that it is trivial and benign. They

mock federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver’s description of “foreign radicals,” pretending this applies to everyone opposed to oil pipelines. There weren’t many reporters with me when I covered the negotiations for the Great Bear Rainforest in 2006. To the Vancouver media it was just a big forest deal up in the middle of nowhere. Along with B.C. cabinet minister Pat Bell, Coastal First Nations and forest companies, the Sierra Club, ForestEthics and Greenpeace muscled their way to the table. How they did so became clear in early 2007. Behind these big three eco-propaganda groups was a $60 million war chest from an obscure outfit called Tides Canada. Another front group, as it turns out. The actual source of the money was the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, the Wilberforce Foundation,



the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Most made their billions in computers and software in San Francisco or Seattle. They’ve funded scientifically suspect campaigns such as “Yellowstone to Yukon” and “boreal forest” aimed at turning more than a third of Canada into parks. Increasingly, they are partnering with aboriginal people in B.C. and across Canada. Some in B.C.’s major media have since grudgingly credited independent B.C. researcher Vivian Krause with filling

in the blanks. She has shown that starting in 2002, these foundations began formally organizing against Canadian fossil fuel production. When the B.C. and Canadian governments matched the $60 million Great Bear Rainforest fund for “ecosystem-based” forest management, they didn’t realize they were reinforcing a blockade against oil exports. Tides and its backers have continued to fund and create new protest groups, which are quoted as they pop up by credulous B.C. media. Their argument against oil exports centres on the sexy but false premise that Alberta’s “tar sands” somehow uniquely threaten the global climate. Lately, as the size of B.C.’s gas development has become clearer, the protests have started to refocus. Now we hear dire claims about the decadesold technique of “fracking” in gas development, and previously obscure groups are springing up

to protest gas projects. Hollywood is about to gas us with an anti-fracking movie starring Matt Damon. Previews suggest that “Promised Land” works the usual evilgreedy-capitalist themes, in the “Avatar” tradition. ForestEthics, Sierra Club and Greenpeace, meanwhile, are campaigning against their original forest preservation deal on B.C.’s Central and North Coast. Sustainable development solutions aren’t good for their business model. If people think a problem is solved, they stop sending money. Meanwhile, the U.S. is surging ahead with its own shale oil and gas boom. Plans are underway for LNG exports from the U.S. to Asia. I think 2013 would be a good year for Canada to start making its own decisions on energy development. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - There’s an implicit promise every long-running TV show makes to its loyal viewers: When the time comes, favourite storylines and characters will bid farewell with an exhilarating, satisfying finale. For those that fail to make good on that promise, the wrath of online ranters and watercooler critics awaits - and in this day and age, that griping can linger for years. (Anyone looking to debate the merits/shortcomings of the “Lost” and “Battlestar Galactica” finales should have no trouble igniting a lively back-and-forth out in the ether.) Next year, beloved series including “30 Rock,” “Breaking Bad,” “The Office,” “Fringe” and “Less Than Kind” wrap their runs. Will they be satisfying conclusions? “The expectations are high on how this is going to end,” “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston notes of his grim AMC drug saga. “The pressure really is all on Vince Gilligan. He should (have) and deserves the lion’s share of the praise by far. My hope is that he is able to find the nuance that he wants to bring to the finale.” Of course, the most memorable finales tend to be of either two extremes - the ones we love (who didn’t adore the “Newhart” ending?) and the ones we hate (the “Seinfeld” finale stands as a disappointing series low). “30 Rock” creator and star Tina Fey says she’s determined to end her show on a high. “We’ve been trying to watch great TV finales, one a day, in our writers’ room and we cry at all of them,” Fey said on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards earlier this year. “Like, the other day, the staff started crying when Frasier took his dad’s chair out. So yeah, we feel pressure not to blow it.” At least Fey and Gilligan have the advantage of knowing well in advance their show is coming to an end. So many shows are cancelled before writers have a chance to craft a proper farewell. “I’m a sci-fi fan and it just drives me crazy when you get to the story and it’s just, snap, the end, rather than a grand finale,” says “Fringe” star Joshua Jackson, who promises a solid conclusion to his mind-bending Fox/Citytv serial. “We get our grand finale. And hopefully it will be satisfactory to the people who have come with us on the journey.”

New shows coming MONday & Movies to tube in January MONDAY EVENING

THE CANADIAN PRESS Canadians can look forward to an avalanche of new fare kicks off TV’s second season in January. January also brings one of the most-watched shows of the year in Canada, the final game of the world junior hockey championship. TSN has it Saturday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. If Canadian network programmers made any New Year’s resolutions it may have been to provide more original scripted Canadian content. CBC premieres the new psychological police drama “Cracked” Jan. 8 at 9 p.m. ET. David Sutcliffe (“Gilmore Girls”) stars as a cop coping with post-traumatic stress disorder. The Halifaxbased comedy “Mr. D” also returns to the CBC schedule Jan. 7, with comedian Gerry Dee back as the teacher you hope your kids never get. “Murdoch Mysteries” premieres its brand new sixth season on CBC the same night. “Arctic Air” also takes off for a second CBC season (Jan. 9). Today is the start date for one of the most expensive dramas ever shot in Canada: “Transporter.” The HBO Canada thriller stars Chris Vance (“Prison Break”) as a driver-for-hire who can deliver any package. Shot in Toronto and Europe, the series promises plenty of action with stunt drivers flown in from France for the tricky road work. CTV launches the new hour-long police drama “Motive” Feb. 3 in the coveted post-Super Bowl slot. Kristin Lehman (“The Killing”) and Louis Ferreira (“SGU Stargate Universe”) star in this Vancouver-based “how-dunnit.” Among the big imports scheduled for the New Year is “The Following,” launching Jan. 21 on Fox and CTV. Kevin Bacon stars as an ex-FBI agent back on the trail of a serial killer in this dark, edgy crime drama. “Touch,” Kiefer Sutherland’s new thriller, returns for a delayed second season Feb. 8 to Fox and Global. The long-awaited return of NBC’s cult comedy “Community” bows Feb. 7. A late night favourite, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” gets bumped ahead to a new time, 11:35, starting Jan. 7 on ABC. And the highest-rated TV series of the past decade, “American Idol,” launches its 12th season Jan. 16 with new judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban joining Randy Jackson.

End the dithering on pension reform An editorial from the Toronto Star It’s becoming a December ritual. Every year Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial finance ministers get together before Christmas to discuss economic priorities and every year pension reform comes up. The outcome is always the same: federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty finds a way to delay any action. He’s done it again. Arguing that the economy is too weak to boost the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and he needs unanimous approval from the provinces before moving, Flaherty proposed that federal and provincial officials study the problem for six months and draft a strategy to boost contribution rates. This is the third study Flaherty has ordered, keeping the issue in abeyance since the 2008-2009 recession. The first, written by Jack Mintz of the University of Calgary, produced the result Ottawa wanted. The Alberta tax specialist declared Canada’s retirement income system adequate and said there is no immediate need for reform. “Canadians are, by and large, doing relatively well in ensuring that they have adequate savings for their retirement,” he wrote. “Overall, the Canadian retirement income system is performing well.” The second study, undertaken by federal bureaucrats, posed more of a challenge for Flaherty. It found that Canada lags behind most industrial

countries in providing income security for retired workers. The principal reason it cited was that workers and employers contribute relatively little, compared to their counterparts in Europe and the United States, to a public pension plan. And it concluded that a modest expansion of the CPP was quite affordable. That was the backdrop for December’s gathering in Meech Lake, Que. Several provincial ministers, led by Dwight Duncan of Ontario, pushed for an enhancement of the CPP. It now provides a retired fulltime worker with a maximum of $12,500 a year. That is not enough to live on, even combined with Old Age Security to which every Canadian senior is entitled. It pays a maximum of $6,552 a year. Rather than responding with an outright no, Flaherty resorted to his usual tactic, commissioning yet another study. “We’ll talk about - if we were to do this, when would we do it?” Contrary to popular belief, beefing up the CPP would not be a sop to baby boomers. It’s too late for workers 45 or older. Even if Ottawa started raising contribution rates right now, it would take two generations to bring the CPP up to a livable level. For workers with a generous company pension, a public sector job or a healthy nest egg, this may not matter. But for the 60 per cent of employed Canadians with no workplace

pension, it does. Many will retire with large debts, unpaid mortgages and minimal savings. They simply won’t be able to pay their bills. Those in the private sector, where 76 per cent have no workplace pension, are particularly vulnerable. That is where most of the precarious, lowwage jobs that come with no benefits or security are concentrated. It’s true, as Flaherty frequently points out, that Canadians have a responsibility to save for their retirement. But the finance minister and his provincial colleagues need to take into account that household incomes (after inflation and taxes) have been stagnant since the recession. Government fees and costrecovery schemes have proliferated, eating into household earnings. In addition to that, many workers who should be prepared for their retirement are supporting grown children who have graduated from college or university but can’t get a foothold in the job market. The longer the finance ministers dither, the greater the likelihood that Canadians who have worked hard all their lives will face an anxious, pinched retirement. There’s no need for another study. Economists, financial planners and actuaries have been churning out papers and proposals for years. All the numbers Flaherty wants are in the last one he commissioned.

An unexpected addition to the ‘61 Smokies legacy will join the Coppa Fiat and the iconic Team Canada jersey that hangs in the Trail Memorial Centre, as a further tribute to the 1961 Trail Smoke Eaters’ World Championship team. A framed copy of a Globe and Mail article written by James Christie in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Silver City team’s big win over Russia in the final game of the ‘61 World Championship was donated to the city and Trail Historical Society by Nick McIntyre, nephew of ‘61 Smokies’ player Pinoke McIntyre. Nick won the framed tribute in an auction at the Smoke Eaters November banquet and thought it would be better served by sharing it with the community. “It’s something that I thought he (Pinoke) would appreciate me doing because he was such a big part of the ‘61 Smoke Eaters,” said Nick. “I thought it would be something in his memory for his kids to see, and it would be nice to have it somewhere where everyone can enjoy it, rather than just sitting in my house.” The ‘61 Smokies gathered at the Royal Theatre in March of last year to mark the 50th

anniversary of the win and enjoy some rare footage of the 5-1 victory over Russia. It was where the author spoke to many of the players. The Globe article outlines the Smoke Eaters’ journey to the championship and includes interviews with players like Cal Hockley, Don Fletcher, Seth Martin, and Dave Rusnell, and how a group of boyhood friends from a small industrial town rose to prominence on the world hockey stage by defying the odds and going undefeated against the juggernauts of world hockey. “It (the ‘61 championship) is an important part of the hockey legacy of Trail,” said Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs upon receiving the frame. “In ‘61 I lived that part of the hockey history in Trail, and I said before, when I came to Trail in ‘61, I’m a sports fan so it was like I died and went to heaven. . . We had the Russians here, the Czechs here, the Swedes here, the best in the world really, and of course our team was also part of the best in the world. So its part of the legacy and I am very proud to receive this . . . it will be cherished by the citizens of Trail.” The tribute was originally presented to Trail City Councillor and ardent Smokie volunteer Eleanor Gattafoni-Robinson by the McIntyre family at the Smoke Eaters’ Dec. 15 game against the Vernon Vipers. It was accompanied by the World Championship footage played for the crowd on the scoreboard.

THE CANADIAN PRESS There was victory and heartache as Canadian athletes made headlines around the world in 2012. From no NHL hockey to just one Olympic gold medal, here is Canadian Press’ take on the top-10 sports stories of 2012: No. 1 - The Lockout The NHL lockout likley had a bigger impact on more people who watch or make a living off sport than anything else in 2012. Arenas were dark, players and owners lost hundreds of millions in pay and revenue, bar and restaurant owners scowled at empty seats and fans grumbled and wondered when it was all going to end. Facebook groups like “NHL Fans Against the Lockout” sprung up, trying to muster support for a boycott in 2013. No. 2 - The Penalty Referee Christiana Pederson’s call in an Olympic women’s soccer semifinal pretty much had a whole country gnashing its teeth and feeling betrayed. The call against Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod for holding the ball too long - which observers agreed was almost unprecedented gave the U.S. the break they needed to send the game into extra time and win. “We feel like we didn’t lose, we feel like it was taken from us,” said Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, who was later fined and suspended for comments she made after the game, although she first helped the team to a bronze medal. “It’s a shame in a game like that, that was so important, the ref decided the result before it started.” No. 3 - The Tragedy B.C.’s Sarah Burke was the golden girl of freestyle skiing, widely considered a favourite for Olympic gold in 2014, when she crashed and died in January. Burke was only 29 when she had what looked like an innocuous fall in Park City, Utah, during a halfpipe training run. It ruptured an artery that carries blood to the brain and renewed calls to look at safety in the sport. In March, Canadian skiing suffered another loss when Nik Zoricic died after a crash during the finals of a World Cup skicross event in Grindelwald, Switzerland. It has also led to an investigation to see whether proper safety precautions were in place. No. 4 - The Cup The Grey Cup game celebrated its centennial in 2012 with a party in Toronto made even sweeter by the home team’s victory A late season surge brought the Argonauts to the big show where they dominated the Calgary Stampeders in a storybook ending for the city and the CFL. No. 5 - The Cyclist In a year when cycling suffered its biggest black eye ever with the Lance Armstrong doping scandal, there was one shining story for

Canadian cyclists - Ryder Hesjedal’s win at the Giro d’Italia. In May, the Victoria native became the first Canadian ever to win one of cycling’s three Grand Tour events. The Giro is not as famous as the Tour de France, but it’s a torturous three-week endurance test that Hesjedal won on the last day. No. 6 - The Trade It was a late contender but it certainly got the attention of the baseball world and made headlines throughout North America. Toronto walked away with allstar shortstop Jose Reyes, pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, catcher John Buck and infielderoutfielder Emilio Bonifacio. The 12-player trade was startling enough to warrant a more careful review than normal. Commissioner Bud Selig took his time but eventually gave it his blessing. No. 7 - The Horse You could argue I’ll Have Another shouldn’t be on this list but the country of the Kentucky thoroughbred’s birth is taking second-place here to the birthplace of the colt’s owner. It was a heartbreaker when, after winning the first two legs of the Triple Crown, the horse was removed from the running of the third just one day before the Belmont Stakes due to a tendon injury. He could have become the first Triple Crown champion in 34 years. No. 8 - The Kid It was a holdover from 2011 but - when there was NHL hockey this past year - Sidney Crosby’s return after another concussion-induced absence was treated like a moon landing. TSN said more than 2.2 million Canadians tuned in to watch some or all of Pittsburgh’s 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers in March. Crosby had two assists after returning from a three-month layoff following his second concussion in less than a year. No. 9 - The Other Trade While it didn’t get the same scrutiny as the other trade on this list, the NBA world was certainly rocked when Steve Nash went from the Phoenix Suns to the Los Angeles Lakers. After eight years in Phoenix (his second stint there) and two MVP awards, Nash went to the Lakers for an estimated $27 million over three years. The Suns got four draft picks. No. 10 - The Gold Dubbed “Bronzilla” for its thirdplace-heavy medal count at the London Olympics (12 out of 18), Canada’s spirits were lifted with a gold medal from an unexpected source. As expectations of highly touted Canadian athletes plummeted, a King City, Ont. gymnast named Rosie MacLennan bounced her way to Canada’s only Olympic gold on the trampoline.

This is obviously the only thing he has to brag about, and he’s not going to stop as long as he thinks he can still get mileage out of it. Try to be tolerant. When he mentions his award, plaster a fake smile onto your face, pat his arm and say, “Yes, Ralph, we know,” and then change the subject or walk away. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Some Talk, Please,” who reports that her husband is otherwise a good guy, but rarely talks to her and sulks for sex. She also said that one of her children has been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. I would like to remind her that the apple does not fall far from the tree. If they have a child with Asperger’s, it is possible that her husband may have the

same diagnosis. This was the case with my son and my husband. I strongly suspected my husband had some form of autism. He was gracious enough to see a psychiatrist, who diagnosed him with Asperger syndrome and

schizoid disorder. My husband truly is clueless about intimacy. There are resources available on the Internet for spouses of people with Asperger’s and also for those who want to learn how to be intimate. I let my

hubby know I am grateful for all he does. I also let him know that when my emotional needs are met, then I will engage in sex. -- Been There, Done That

Dear Annie: My husband and I have a friend who was given an award a few years ago. Many of us attended the event, and friends from afar sent congratulations and accolades. Since then, however, “Ralph” brings up the award at every occasion, showering everyone with photos and bragging to the skies. This is getting rather tiring to the rest of us. Some people have made a few comments to him, saying it’s time to “let it go,” but it doesn’t help. Ralph thinks he’s truly hot stuff now, and it’s become unbearable to be around him. We all enjoy the company of his wife, who unfortunately doesn’t try to curtail his boasting, but we certainly don’t wish to be around Ralph anymore.

Dear Annie: I was diagnosed with depression more than 20 years ago. When I was in high school, I was hospitalized for close to a year. Because money and insurance have been sporadic, I have been on and off of medication. Plus, once I get on a good medication, I start feeling that I don’t need it anymore. Last year, my husband lost his job, so I have no insurance and have been off of medication since. Annie, my depression feels like it is crushing me. I am tired all the time and not interested in doing anything. I interpret everything my husband says as insulting or angry, although I know it isn’t. Part of the problem is, we haven’t had sex in three years. He says he just doesn’t want to. So I feel pretty worthless. I fantasize about dying. I feel this dark cloud hanging over me. I try to put on a happy face, but it doesn’t

One Hit Wonders coming to Trail By Timothy Schafer Times Staff

All it takes is one show to deliver the one hit wonders of the 1960s and 1970s. And all it takes is a ticket to Rann Berry and the One Hit Wonders to catch them all. Berry and his band will pay tribute Jan. 11 at the Charles Bailey Theatre to those big hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s that you forgot you love. The show pays tribute to that time between the mid ‘60s to the mid ‘70s when bands and songwriters were free to express themselves, both musically and idealistically, said Berry. “The songs in this show are all considered

to be ‘one hit wonders,’ which means they were the single big hit for each band or artist, or the song they are primarily known for,” he said. Due to the popularity of these hits back then, many of these songs were subsequently covered by major artists such as Glenn Campbell, Tom Jones and even Elvis. Berry appears with special guest Diamond Jones and his Las Vegas Revue. The show takes place at the Charles Bailey Theatre on Friday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Charles Bailey Theatre box office or by phone at 250-3689669.
