The Selkirk Free the Children Club is comprised of 14 active and energetic student volunteers who have dedicated time and energy to raising money and awareness in support of social issues that affect us locally and globally. The students can be seen trick-or-treating around Halloween for non perishable food that is donated to the local food bank, collecting pennies for the fresh water project, or raising money to build a school in Haiti. To date the students have raised over $5700 of the $8500 needed to build the school.

Making the transition back to PST Businesses must register for a new PST number C AROLYN GR ANT

It has taken some time since the referendum in the summer of 2011 indicated that the will of the people was that the Harmonized Sales Tax be repealed and the Provincial Sales Tax returned, but things are now moving quickly. The return to the PST/GST tax system is official on April 1,

2013. For the consumer, the only noticeable change will be a few more pennies in the pocket as many items that were taxable under the HST at 12 per cent, will now only be taxed under the five per cent GST. A full list of those items is available at For businesses, it means registering to collect the tax. The registration process began on January 2, 2013 and businesses must register in order to receive a new PST number. There are three ways to register. • Online - go to: Online registration should take about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. • In person - go to the Service BC Centre in Cranbrook. • By mail or fax - complete the Application for Registration for Provincial Sales Tax (FIN 418) found at: (Go to Forms and Publications.) Businesses also can get the form at the nearest Service BC Centre, or by calling 1 877 388-4440 to have one mailed to you. Mail or fax the completed form to the address or fax number shown on the form, along with the appropriate documentation.

A new PST number will be assigned once the business registration application is processed. Minister of State for Small Business, Naomi Yamamoto is directing the changeover for business. “This early opportunity to register online is just one of the ways government is working with businesses to help them transition back to the PST. We’re also offering webinars, PST seminars, extended hours for phone assistance and special consultations with tax specialists,” Yamamoto said.

New ID cards to prevent health fraud To m F le tc h e r Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government is rolling out its new hightech medical services cards starting Feb. 15, in an effort to phase out millions of CareCards in the hands of non-residents. The new cards will be combined with the B.C. driver’s licence, with a similar “BC Services Card” available to those who don’t drive. Residents will be required to re-enrol to renew the card every five years, whether they drive or not.

Qualified residents can enrol in the Medical Services Plan at any provincial office that issues driver’s licences. There is no fee for the health services card only. The current $75 fee for a five-year driver’s licence renewal will apply to the new combined cards, discounted to $17 for seniors. There is no requirement to get the new card until your driver’s licence needs to be renewed. The government’s plan is to change over all eligible B.C. residents between the ages of 19 and 74 to the new cards over the next five years. To be eligible for MSP coverage, you must be a citizen or approved permanent resident of Canada, living in B.C. at least six months of the

Cards in circulation. The total population of B.C. is 4.5 million. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the new card is designed to comply with B.C.’s information and privacy law, which re-

Dear Townsman readers; For those who tried to contact our office between the hours of three and five Monday afternoon and found us to have mysteriously disappeared, no, a giant spaceship did not come down and snatch us up. No doubt the temptation is to think so — it was as if we vanished off the face of the earth. But what in fact occurred was our power supply was shut off so that BC Hydro, bless ‘em, could upgrade our

entire system so that we could operate our new press, the installation of which is nearing completion. To those with pressing (no pun intended) Townsman business Monday afternoon, we regret not being at hand to serve you. We are, rest assured, once again available as of Tuesday morning at 8:30. In the meantime, stayed tuned for further exciting new press news, coming soon to these pages.

Doyle decision protested by Macdonald, defended by Clovechok From Front Page Doyle has been involved in a number of investigations in his six year term, including the investigation into the government’s decision to pay the $6 million legal bills for two former ministerial aides, Dave Basi and Bobby Virk, who pleaded guilty to leaking information related to the sale of BC Rail. He has also focused on Legislative travel expenses, a lack of resources in the environmental assessment process and deferral of expenses at BC Hydro which made it look more profitable than it actually is. All good work, says Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald, and all good reason for Mr. Doyle to have been reappointed. “This is a gentleman who is very highly regarded and who has done very good work — work that shines the light on what government is doing,” Macdonald said. “The BC Liberals are sending a message — if you do your job and are critical of the government, you will not last here in B.C. “This is a gentleman who would be hard on the government of the day, whether Lib-

It’s difficult to imagine that any successor to John Doyle will not read the writing that was written on the wall with this decision: if you want to be reappointed don’t do the job of Auditor General too well.” IntegrityBC executive director Dermod Travis eral or NDP.” Macdonald says that all of Doyle’s investigations have been demonstrably in the public interest. “Few people are more important to the taxpayer,” he said. It’s not just the NDP who are crying fowl. Watchdog organization Integrity BC is also protesting the decision. “Government watchdogs are supposed to have teeth, not wear muzzles,” said IntegrityBC executive director Dermod Travis. “It’s difficult to imagine that any successor to John Doyle will not read the writing that was written on the wall with this decision: if you want to be reappointed don’t do the job of Auditor General too well.”

The organization has launched an online petition in the wake of the Doyle decision calling the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia to freeze the appointments or re-appointments of all Legislature Officers until after the May 2013 B.C. election and introduce new policies to ensure that all such appointments or re-appointments take place within six months of each fixed-date general election. The petition can be found on the organization’s Facebook page www.facebook. com/integritybritishcolumbia or at https:// w w w . c h a n g e. o r g / e n - C A / p e t i t i o n s / freeze-the-appointments-or-re-appointments-of-all-legislature-officers However, Doug Clovechok, BC Liberal

candidate for Columbia River Revelstoke has a different view. “Let me begin by saying the office of the AG is not going anywhere and the NDP conspiracy theories around this decision is just more of their meaningless rhetoric,” clovechok said. “The Premier and our party are committed to this very important position that acts as the watch dog on government spending. Simply, the current AG’s term ended and the vote to re-hire had to be unanimous from the committee and it was not. The decision was an in-camera one made by a committee comprised of both BC Liberal and the NDP members and as such how votes were cast will not be made public. Tax payers need to rest assured that going forward this same committee will appoint the best person to do the job that will hold government, legislators and agencies to account. The BC Liberals continue to work very hard to control government spending and clearly understand the value of the AG’s office to British Columbians and their families.”

The Bard is back for 2013, and flesh is selling by the pound. If you thought service charges were bad today, you never did business in 16th century Venice. Bard in Your Own Backyard, Cranbrook’s Shakespeare society, is mounting an intriguing production of one of Shakespeare’s most famous and challenging plays. “The Merchant of Venice” opens Thursday, Jan. 24, at the Key City Theatre in Cranbrook. “Merchant” follows a dual storyline — the wooing of Portia, a rich heiress, by several suitors, and the debt of the businessman Antonio to the moneylender Shylock the Jew. Antonio has borrowed the money from Shylock to finance his friend Bassanio’s pursuit of Portia. The two storylines with their main characters merge at the play’s climax, but a mix of comedic and tragic elements makes “Merchant” one of Shakespeare’s more challenging plays to produce. The production marks the directorial debut of Dean Nicholson, who also plays one of the lead characters, Shylock the Jew. Nicholson was intrigued by the contrast of the two storylines, the first a

fluffy romance and the second a dark drama exploring human weakness, and he has sought to create a production that seeks to meld the two with commentary that is relevant to today’s audience. Contrasting scenes of broad physical humour, witty dialogue and intense drama into a cohesive whole was the challenge Dean undertook. “Merchant of Venice” is certainly one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, and one of his most performed, but it is also a difficult play to stage. It is potentially troubling to modern audiences because of some of its central themes, which can be construed as anti-semitic. Nicholson said the BYOB production focuses less on the religious concerns, however, and more on the ease with which people create divisions between people, whether based on age, status, wealth or gender. In this production, the anachronistic use of modern technology in an Elizabethan setting underscores one such division between the technologically savvy young and the older generation who risk becoming out of touch, and are only seen as a

source of money. “Merchant” presents a host of Shakespeare’s notable characters — Portia and her suitors, Antonio and Bassanio and their entourages, and various eccentric secondary personages. “Although Shylock is most often remembered because of his enraged pursuit of justice, all of the characters demonstrate a willingness to let ethics and integrity slide in the pursuit of money, status, love and revenge,” Nicholson said. Shakespeare ostensibly wrote the play in the midst of an anti-semitic time and culture (Elizabethan society has been described as “judeophobic”); even so, Shylock remains one of his most intriguing and sympathetic cwharacters. His ostricization from the society around him is made plain, as are the reasons for his resentment. One can sympathize with Shylock after the flight of his daughter with his money, and the transference of his rage to Antonio, who has been forced to borrow from the Jew even while despising him. Thus, the whole “pound of flesh” metaphor turns around the rage of an underdog. “In the end, the production looks at the ex-

periences of insiders and outsiders, and what individuals are willing to do to belong to a more desirable group,” Nicholson said. “Do any of the characters get what they want, and want do they have to give up to belong?” Once again, Bard in Your Own Backyard has tapped into the local acting community for the broad range of roles required to bring Shakespeare to life on stage. The cast, featuring both veteran actors of the scene and newcomers, includes: David Prinn, Dean Nicholson, Don Davidson, Josh Klassen, Jarrod Bondy, Drew McGowan, Graham McBean, Mark Casey, Bob Wakulich, Nathan Staplin, Alan McBean, Jeff Cooper, William Nicholson, Danielle Nicholson, Kimberley Davidson, Michelle Heinz, Hannah van der Roest, Jean Ann Debreceni, Joe Debreceni, and Joel Vinge. “Merchant of Venice,” directed by Dean Nicholson and produced by Susan Hanson, runs Jthursday through Saturday, Jan. 24, 25 and 26, and Thursday through Saturday, Jn. 31, Feb.1 and Feb. 2. Tickets are available at the Key City Theatre box office.

Only when I laugh at myself What’s Up?

“Looking foolish does the spirit good.” John Updike


a shame but young people have not the slightest conception of the fun that old people enjoy every minute of their days. One of the first really old people that I knew was my grandma, who lived with us for several years. Granny Flo had two pairs of glasses: her near-tos and her faraways. She seemed unable at any given time to know which pair she needed and so she donned the first pair that came to hand and then, with the whole family in action, searched for the others. I think she really enjoyed the situation and repeated it frequently. The other day, I was endeavouring to fix a stair rail that had come apart with me desperately clinging to it. I survived and so, eventually, set to work to repair it. It’s darkish on that stair so I sought a pair of glasses in order that I might actually see what sort of screw-driver head I was to need. The glasses, probably a drug-store special, came from my computer desk. I use them when people send me messages in ridiculously small print, like the stuff hidden at the bottom of a guarantee, the stuff you’re not supposed to read. I went outside to fetch the appropriate screw-driver; it was only a short walk but I was positive that I was suffering from some fatal attack. I was so dizzy; I reeled and clutched at things but finally reached the shed, fumbled with the latch, found the right screw-driver, then reeled back indoors to lie down somewhere and there expire. However, when I took off the glasses, I recovered fully and suddenly realized how

Granny Flo must have felt so long ago. A few weeks ago I was wrestled to the ground by a pair of overalls. This event led not to laughter on my part but almost hysteria. At the end of the bout I lay helpless on the cold concrete floor of the basement and had hysterics. I was helpless in the grip of those overalls, pinned. I’d just come back from getting in the way of a friend who was building things but, as I stepped into my own basement, a sudden, serious toilet urge caused me to endeavour to get out of my cov-

Peter Warland eralls quickly. This, however, was not to be accomplished with ease. In fact, it ended in an epic battle with me on the cold concrete floor, helpless, and laughing fit to burst. It was only later that I discovered that the winners of that bout, the coveralls, were not even mine; they belonged to a much smaller relative; I’d tossed my own away years before. The serious giggles

started for me last summer when I attempted to step up (unaided) on a chair. I wanted to weed the geraniums in the box outside the living room. There were some unwanted things like feral dandelions and sunflowers growing up there but I couldn’t reach them so I tried to use that kitchen chair. However, neither leg would accomplish the task without me tugging on something, and, because the window box was of my construction, I didn’t even think of hauling on it. I tried several times but the gerani-

ums went un-weeded until I bothered to drag out a ladder. For days after that incident I giggled at my body’s ineptitude. As is the case with many elderly people, I have a back that will not always bend as much as I would like it to. This sometimes causes me to get into predicaments like attempting to slide into the seat of a small car or undo my badly knotted laces of my hiking boots. It is not really painful though; it only hurts when I laugh at myself, something I seem to be doing an awful lot these days of my dotage .

A real hero for aboriginal people


he century-old plight of Canada’s aboriginal people is back in the public eye, thanks to protests dubbed Idle No More. As with Occupy protests last year, the demands are vague. One of the claims, repeated in media coverage of protests, is that the federal government is moving to end the historic Indian Act restriction against selling reserve land. A look at the federal legislation, Bill C-45, shows this is not the case. Amendments ease restrictive provisions for leasing reserve land, which remains property of the Crown held in perpetuity for the aboriginal community. This change was initiated by B.C. aboriginal leaders so they can follow the trail blazed by one of the most entrepreneurial chiefs in Canadian history. His name is Ron Derrickson, and he served six terms as chief of the Westbank First Nation near Kelowna. One of my first big reporting assignments was covering a Royal Commission into his administration’s business affairs in the mid-1980s. There had been an astonishing 17 federal investigations before that, stemming from local claims that Derrickson was just too successful. He drove a big black Mercedes, wore expensive suits, and established a bunch of enterprises, including

Canada’s first water slide. The commission was chaired by John Hall, then known as the Crown prosecutor who put serial killer Clifford Olson away, and now an appeal court judge. Derrickson’s suit jacket had a conspicuous bulge as he took the stand each day. He was packing a semi-automatic pistol, having demanded and received a carry permit after a brutal attempt on BC VIEWS his life. The hit man, an ex-cop, Tom was hired by people who Fletcher didn’t like the bottom-line way Derrickson ran Westbank’s lease-hold mobile home parks. He showed up at Derrickson’s home one day and tried to beat him to death with a metal bar. Badly injured, Derrickson made it to his gun cabinet and shot his assailant, who survived to go to prison. Derrickson testified that his approach to the Indian Affairs bureaucracy was simple. He did business, and if they didn’t like it, they could tell him. Reserve land can’t be sold, so he leased it, offering people a low-cost way to enjoy the sunny Okanagan. His business plan was also simple. Drive to California and see what they’re doing. Drive back and do it in B.C. A 2007 profile of Derrickson by Greg Fjetland in <I>Canadian Business</I> magazine describes how he came by his

approach to Ottawa. He grew up “dirt poor, living in a tar paper shack.” His family name was Tousawasket, until the local Indian Agent drew an Anglo name out of a hat. He and his brother were the first aboriginal kids to attend public school in Kelowna. Racist bullying drove his parents to move him to a residential school in Washington State. He dropped out in Grade 9, toiled on farms, learned to weld, and worked his way into ranching, real estate and politics. He never gave up or backed down, ever. The Hall commission and all previous government probes concluded that he did nothing wrong. Derrickson sued his local accusers and won, and Ottawa began to change its racist, paternalistic ways. Which brings us back to today. Derrickson’s pioneering work is still changing the Indian Act for the better. This effort is under dishonest attack from people whose legacy is mainly incompetence and failure. Protesters demand more unearned public subsidy, and a petulant soup-only strike is celebrated as an act of bravery. Choose your own hero. I’ve chosen mine.

Shirley returns from U17 tournament TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Collin Shirley is back. The 16-year-old rookie rejoined the Ice for practice on Monday in a return to his home WHL club after competing in the U17 World Hockey Challenge in Quebec over the Christmas break. His squad, coached by Don MacGillivray of the Winnipeg Blues in the MJHL, had a tough go, finishing in 9th place, losing four games, while getting a lone win against Slovakia.

Collin Shirley Despite the outcome, Shirley said he had a blast. “It was good,” said Shirley. “It was quite a treat to go over to Quebec—never been there before.” Shirley, who hails from Saskatoon, SK, was named to Team West in November in the 10team tournament, which pits five Canadian squads against competition from Europe and the U.S. “In a short-term tournament, you kind of got to come together quick as a team and just play in roles, whatever the coach tells you to do, you got to accept that and just be ready to go,” Shirley said, on what he took away from the experience. Shirley followed in

the footsteps of Jon Martin, Sam Reinhart and Jaedon Descheneau, as all three represented the Ice while competing in the tournament last year for Team West and Team Pacific. It’s always special to play in international competition and develop further as a player, Shirley added. “You gotta take a role that the coach gives you and I think that’s going to help down the road— wherever they need you to play, you can play it,” said Shirley. MacGillivray had Shirley on the second and third line, instructing the young Kootenay forward to take advantage of scoring opportunities while playing with some grit. It’s a role he’s pretty familiar with anyways. Shirley has six goals and four assists so far with the Ice and the rookie is excited to return to a hot team that has won five games in a row. Kootenay head coach Ryan McGill added that he’s happy Shirley is back as well, noting that his presence bumps up the forward count to 13, which will foster some healthy competition for lineup spots. “This is now a competition and that’s a good thing,” said McGill. “He’s a good young player that we need to develop and now it just becomes a development process and a healthy, healthy competition between the other 12 forwards in the lineup, knowing that he has an opportunity to take somebody’s position.”

Daly anticipates a 48-game schedule for NHL season CHRIS JOHNSTON Canadian Press

NEW YORK - The NHL is most likely to play a 48-game season after its new collective bargaining agreement is ratified. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Canadian Press on Monday morning that hope for a 50-game schedule was already fading as the league and NHL Players’ Association continued to

work towards finalizing the document their constituents will eventually vote on. “It depends on ratification timeline for PA, but it’s looking more and more like 48 games is going to be the only option,” Daly said in an email. The NHL’s Board of Governors is scheduled to gather in New York on Wednesday to hold a ratification vote.

Work ethic key to recent success: McGill TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

They say winning isn’t everything, but it’s gotta feel pretty good for the Kootenay Ice. The hometown WHL club has strung together five consecutive victories, which is the longest streak so far in the season. Not a bad reversal of fortunes after going through an eight-game losing slide at the end of October. Overall improvement—as individuals and as a team unit— have been a large part of Kootenay’s post-Christmas turnaround, however, there is still lots of work to be done. Along with improvement, Ice head coach Ryan McGill notices his players are playing with an impressive work ethic. “One of the biggest things is we’re doing a good job of sticking to our high compete level—a good solid work ethic—and not getting away from that too much,” McGill said. “Obviously in this league, with young teams, sometimes you forget that you need to work first and do a few other things second. I

think, for the most part, we’ve been consistently working as a group and not just individuals. “That’s the biggest thing for me, for sure, in five games.” McGill also credits Skapski’s work in net between the pipes and the work of the power play and penalty killing units. “A lot of games are won and lost on special teams and I think last night was no different,” said McGill, pointing to Sam Reinhart’s powerplay buzzer-beater in the second period against the Rebels on Sunday that tied up the game at 1-1. “That goal with a second left in the second period was a huge goal for us, regardless of the fact that we felt we had competed really hard in that period,” McGill said. “I just think that psychologically, going into the third period at 1-1 is a lot better psychologically than knowing that you’re competing really hard and should’ve had more goals, but didn’t get them.” From an individual standpoint, guys like Levi Cable, Luke Philp and Tanner Faith have been standing out with

some solid performances on and off the scoresheet. Cable notched two assists over the weekend, and the Ice forward in his sophomore season has been playing with a lot more confidence. Philp, while not a rookie per se, as he got in 17 games with the Ice last year to cover injuries, is in third place for team scoring, with 11 goals and 10 assists. Faith had a great weekend as well, posting an assist as Brock Montgomery tipped his point shot for a goal against the Broncos on Friday. The 17-year-old rookie has been paired up with veteran overage defenceman Joey Leach, and the results are pretty positive. For his part, Faith is happy to be paired up with Leach on the blue line. “It’s amazing,” said Faith. “Some of the things he does helps me out a lot. It helps me out more and lets me do my stuff, knowing that I can rely on Leach.” “…He’s a really smart hockey player, so the things he does, all the little things, build up to winning hockey games.” McGill said he had

wanted to pair them up earlier, but Leach got injured at the beginning of December for eight games. “Tanner’s done a lot on his own, obviously, but anytime you can play with Joey Leach, it just gives you that much more confidence that he’s going to be there to help you,” McGill said. “There are a lot of intangibles that go into playing this game and a lot of intangibles that the coaches can’t give you but other players can and Joey has that leadership ability to do that and he’s certainly

helped him along the way.” The Ice are also benefiting with the return of forward Collin Shirley, who spent the Christmas break represeting the Canadian Prairies for Team West at the U17 World Hockey Challenge in Quebec (see adjacent story). McGill confirmed that he’ll be back in the lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Edmonton Oil Kings. That leaves 13 other forwards, which will mean players will have to start competing for spots in the lineup.

Local hockey player called up to AHL SUBMIT TED

The Texas Stars, American Hockey League affiliate of the Dallas Stars, announced on Monday that Dallas has reassigned defenseman Jace Coyle to Texas from the Idaho Steelheads, their ECHL affiliate. Coyle, 22, made Texas’ opening night roster out of training camp, but did not appear in a game before he was reassigned to

Idaho on October 23. The Cranbrook, British Columbia, native has played in 18 games for the Steelheads this year, scoring 13 points (1 goal, 12 assists), 18 penalty minutes and a +9 plus-minus rating. Coyle suffered an injury in early December and missed ten games. He returned to the lineup this past weekend and in Idaho’s last two games he had two assists and a +6 rating.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am a 50-year-old adoptee. About 10 years ago, I was finally able to locate my biological mother. It took me months to work up the nerve to phone her, and the call was a nightmare. Her first words were, “How did you find me? I was told nobody would ever know.” That was followed by, “What do you want from me?” I explained that the laws in Kansas had changed, and they released the information. I told her I didn’t want anything except family medical history and some knowledge of where I came from. I told her I understood those were different times and I hold no ill will because I’ve had a wonderful life with adoptive parents who love me. I cried for three days after that call. I was completely crushed. Four days later, she called back, quite apologetic, and we talked for more than an hour. Obviously, she needed time to get past the shock. Here’s the problem. She has three other children who are all adults now, and she doesn’t want them to know about me. She told her late husband, but she spent years fearing I would contact her. I do not agree with her position. I feel the kids have a right to know they have a half-sister. Your thoughts? -- Conflicted Adoptee from Kansas Dear Conflicted: We agree, but try to see this from your bio mom’s perspective. She believes knowing that she had a child before she married the children’s father would devastate them and change how they feel about her. Instead of pressuring her, help her see that her children might be surprised, but not necessarily upset. And they may be angry if she withholds this information and they find out later. Encourage her to see contact between you in a more positive light. Dear Annie: My son is a dedicated anesthesiologist. He took a job at a small hospital in a small town, hoping to enjoy a reasonable life. The pay isn’t as good as that of a large hospital in a big city, but he was willing to take a cut in order to work there. I realize that the hours are never good for his type of specialty, but I am so upset that the people at this hospital expect him to put in 24-hour days with little sleep. I thought the lack of sleep for doctors was studied and determined to be unacceptable and harmful to patients. What on earth are these people thinking? I would be very concerned about stretching a doctor’s exhaustion to the brink of something serious happening. What can I do? -- Worried Mom Dear Worried: In order to prevent fatigue-related medical errors, rules were put into effect limiting residents’ work hours. Last year, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education updated those rules. At the moment, first-year residents cannot work longer than 16 hours straight. But more advanced residents can work up to 24 hours straight. If your son is past his firstyear residency, his hospital is doing nothing unusual. We know you don’t want your son to be overextended, but you need to let him handle this however he sees fit. Dear Annie: “Sickened on the East Coast” was in a dispute with her child’s middle school over their summer reading list. I was in a similar situation several years ago with my son’s high school. I read the recommended book along with my son so we could discuss it. I felt the book was inappropriate for a number of reasons. At the beginning of the school year, I requested a meeting with the head of the English department. I explained my objections and also provided alternate titles for future summer reading assignments, pointing out life lessons that could be taught with my suggested titles. I think most people are willing to listen to our complaints when we also provide a solution. -- A Mom Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Experience the romance of the Mediterranean Joyce Termuende Special to the Townsman

A Mediterranean cruise can be rewarding in so many ways – culturally, educationally, visually and historically. The Mediterranean is the second most popular cruise region in the world. It is generally divided into two cruising areas: the Western Mediterranean – France, Spain, Portugal and Italy and the Eastern Mediterranean – Italy, Croatia, Montenegro. Although the standard Mediterranean cruise season is from May to October, it can start as early as March and finish as late as November. The sailings usually vary between seven days to 14 days. Celebrity Cruise’s popular 12day Adriatic itinerary, sails from Venice to Rome between April and November, giving the traveler an opportunity to experience the beautiful Adriatic Sea with its historical coastal towns such as Dubrovnik and Split in Croatia, or Kotor in Montenegro. Experience the spectacular and romantic Amalfi coast where you can wander the narrow streets of Naples and Sorrento or stroll through the ruins of Pom-

Westjet plane slides off Kelowna runway C ANADIAN PRESS

KELOWNA, B.C. — Passengers aboard a WestJet (TSX:WJA) plane that slid off the tarmac and had its wheels stuck in the snow at the airport in Kelowna, B.C., were left waiting for another way to get to Alberta. WestJet Flight 150, destined for Edmonton, was carrying 134 passengers and six crew members as it pulled away from the terminal shortly before 8 a.m. on Monday, said airline spokesman Robert Palmer. The plane was moving at about 15 kilometres per hour when at least some of its wheels left the tarmac. There were no injuries. A storm was blanketing the area with heavy snow at the time, causing poor visibility, but Palmer said the exact cause was still under investigation. ``It appears to be weather related at this time — they’re having quite the snowstorm there and it’s difficult to see where the tarmac stops and the grass starts because it’s under a whole bunch of snow,’’ Palmer said.

``It would be similar to your car, if you were making a turn and as you made the turn you slid sideways a little bit and ended up catching a bunch of snow.’’ The airport’s director said all of the plane’s wheels were off the tarmac, but Palmer said the information he had indicated only the nose wheels and the wheels below the right wing were off the pavement and in the snow-covered grass. All the passengers were OK and were being rebooked on other flights, Palmer said. However, the snowstorm had cancelled other flights into and out of Kelowna and it wasn’t clear when all of the passengers would make it to Edmonton. WestJet planned to pay for their meals, accommodation and travel until they were able to depart, Palmer said. He said crews were inspecting the plane for damage before determining if it could return to service but that the slow speed meant it’s unlikely the aircraft sustained any serious damage.
