a city, did get a good deal?” The mayor said he could not answer, because part of it wasn’t tendered. “I don’t have the numbers, honestly,” he said. “The roof was tendered, the mechanical, the painting, there was one other that was tendered.” Paré, an engineer, went on to say the procurement policy for anything over $10,000 requires either three bids or a request for proposal. “It appears from the actual amounts that were spent on it, that those values were exceeded and that those rewards were put out without proper public procurement policy,” Paré said. Leigh Harrison, a former attorney, asked if the City has sought legal counsel, to which the mayor answered they hadn’t, since there was no legal problem. “In hindsight, there was errors made, was there any financial damage to the City? We’re not aware of that.”

Growth spurt possible for pool Grand Forks briefs Changing demographics and increasing use of recreation facilities have prompted the 10-person recreation commission of the Grand Forks Recreation Department to once again consider expansion of the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre. Chairman Gene Robert said the reason the recommendation is being considered now is because the current facilities are simply not meeting local needs.

Female bodybuilder takes trophy Sharona Witwicki left Grand Forks in October last year, she returned in November with a bodybuilding trophy in her hands and a big smile on her face. The 32-year-old Grand Forks resident competed in the Figure class at the Sandra Wickham Fall Classic (SWFC) – held in New Westminster on Nov. 10. Witwicki says the Figure class is more feminine than female bodybuilding

but more muscle is required than in the bikini category.

Last Thursday night, Rossland residents packed the Senior’s Hall in hopes of having the mayor clarify the issues around the arena roofing project which had arisen after documents revealed former building inspector Jason Ward’s company, ADA Contracting, had billed the city for $185,000 for work on the arena project, while Ward was the project manager for the City. Ward resigned in 2011 for “personal reasons” prior to the information being released. It was through Freedom of Information requests and a push by Coun. Kathy Moore that the information recently came to light. Granstrom attempted to answer questions, but the feeling in the room pointed to those questions not being resolved. “Without a doubt, this process was regrettable in some in-

stances,” Granstrom said. “As far as we know, there is no loss to the city. The entire process was audited very closely. Second of all the auditor made some recommendations to correct some procedures and those requests have been taken care of. I would also say that I have no knowledge of anything that that is illegal.” Elise Paré noted that after looking at the project budget summary, there was $1 – 1.2 million set aside for the roof project, but the tender came in at just over $600,000. This meant money left in the budget for other repairs. “My question is how was the scope determined for those repairs? Was there a design for a scope of work that was given to the contractors that are listed here getting paid, ADA included, but also several other local contractors, and how do you know if the scope was completed to the fullest ability and that we, as

West Kootenay Advertiser

Part of an ongoing series looking at local collectibles. The Trail Smoke Eaters logo is nearly as well known as the hockey team’s very name. The earliest incarnation — an orange ring with two billowing smoke stacks in the centre — appears to have been designed in the mid-1930s. Mickey Brennan, who played on the 1939 world championship team, told the Trail Times in 1978 that it was designed by a Cominco general office type named Jimmy Rude. “As I recall, he was just a hockey fan with a flair for that sort of thing,” Brennan said. A copy of one of the first programs to use the logo sold last month on eBay for $68 US despite many

missing pages. It was for a March 4, 1936 match between Trail and Kimberley, the third game in the West Kootenay Hockey League bestof-five league final.

Hugo Mackie scored a hat trick in leading the Dynamiters to a 6-3 win. Jimmy Morris, Ab Cronie, and Nick Andreashuk scored for Trail. Kimberley went on

to take the series three games to one. The program, produce by the Trail Booster Club, contains ads for the Company Store, Sherman’s Billiards, and Wagstaff Hardware, among others. It also contained contributions by hockey legends Lester Patrick, Lionel and Charlie Conacher, and Frank Boucher. The logo, which appears on the cover, has since gone through several refinements, most dramatically in 2000 when the team executive agreed to remove the smoke altogether, given financial incentives from image-conscious Cominco. It caused a bit of an outcry at the time — one pundit claimed it was like taking the H out of the Montreal Canadiens logo — but the smoke-free crest, featuring chimneys that look more like upright

finger guns, is the one the team wears to this day. • Another program for a 1962 Allan Cup final match between Trail and the Montreal Olympics sold for $58 US. Trail hosted that series  and won, four games to one. • A 1953 postmark from the Lower Arrow Lakes community of Broadwater sold recently for $56 Cdn.

Grand Forks to host a peewee puck party Karl Yu West Kootenay Advertiser

Grand Forks will host the Peewee Tier 4 B.C. Hockey Championships in March and while the locals will be represented, organizers are hoping people from across the province attend as well. According to tournament co-chair Mike Jourdin, teams have not yet been determined – teams will take part in playoffs in February – but the Okanagan, East Kootenay, West Kootenay, Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, and parts of the Yukon will vie for the title. Jourdin said Grand Forks seems to be off the map for some people but the area has a lot to offer. “What I’ve noticed is that many people do not seem to know where Grand Forks is, particularly when

Head coach Darryl Turner (standing at back) and Grand Forks’ peewee hockey team will be part of the Tier 4 B.C. Hockey championships in Grand Forks in March. Karl Yu photo

it comes to youth sports,” he said. “It seems at times that people often overlook Grand Forks as a sporting destination and look to the larger communities in the area for tournaments. I’m not sure why that is because

Grand Forks has a junior hockey team, the Grand Forks International baseball tournament and all the other minor organized youth sports that one would find in other larger centres.” Hosting this tournament is a good

way to support local minor hockey and showcase all the area has to offer according to tournament fundraiser/co-ordinator Colleen McKay. “You can come and see the sights of Grand Forks,” McKay explained.

“We have our local ski hill (Phoenix Mountain), the Grand Forks Aquatic Centre and we’re also trying to get the Doukhobor ladies on to do a luncheon for the visitors.” Volunteers are also needed whether they are from the local area or beyond. Anyone wishing to help or advertise in the tournament program can contact McKay at cascade4@telus.net or 250-442-0492. The tournament will begin on Sunday, March 17 and continue to Wednesday and Thursday of that week depending on how many teams are taking part. There will be a banquet on the evening of March 16, where rules will be discussed and players and coaches will have a chance to socialize. All games will take place at Grand Forks Arena.

his service rates and decided to keep his business in motion. Customers paid 10 per cent more ($3.45 instead of $3.15) for a start-up fee; 22 per cent more on travel time – $2.51 per kilometre rather than $2.06 – and three per

cent more for wait time. Trail Taxi began in the mid-1960s but when Foglia took over the company in 2000 he changed the name to Champion Cabs and later combined the service with Castlegar Taxi, which

he bought six years ago. He felt the two companies – and an answering service he established in conjunction with the taxi services – would support each other enough to survive as the lone cab company.

Nearly one year after Champion Cabs had requested an increase to their rates, the company has had to make further changes to deal with the bleeding. Company owner John Foglia said that although the rates for his fares have risen, the economy has “slid backwards” and the company has had to cut its hours of service. Since the rate increase in February, the service has gone from operating 24 hours per day, seven days per week to 16 hours per day to now to putting cabs on the road for eight hours per day on only certain days. There is no taxi service available at all after 7 p.m. from Monday to Wednesday in Trail, with longer service available later in the week and on weekends. “It’s getting worse and worse,” he said about the business situation. “It’s not that it’s not enough (the rate increase), but there’s not enough volume to make it worthwhile.” He said the company has had to keep cutting back and did not know how it the situation could be improved. Although his company is up for sale he said there was no danger of it closing right now, as long as it continued to break even. He said the re-institution of the provincial sales tax could erode the bottom line this year and put the service in jeopardy once again. Without demand, Champion Cabs went from having six operational vehicles in Trail and Castlegar to three but only had one on the road between the two communities for this past month. In February Foglia threatened to close his company after requesting a 35 per cent

rate increase from the Passenger Transportation Board because rising minimum wage, high gas prices and growing insurance costs were driving him into debt to the tune of $22,000. He was granted an cumulative hike to

Nelson officers honoured Sam Van Schie West Kootenay Advertiser

A couple Nelson police officers were honoured with long service medals during the annual reception of city council last month. Police Chief Wayne Holland, who himself has been a police officer for more than 30 years, presented the awards to his colleagues. First up for recognition was Sergeant Fred Mansveld who retired last February after 31 years of service (“Which, in anyone else’s book, is the equivalent of 62 years years of performance,” joked Hol-

land). Mansveld enlisted with the Vancouver Police Department in 1981 and 10 years later came to the Nelson department as a constable. He was promoted to sergeant in 2002, and in 2005 he became the sergeant in charge of the Kootenay Integrated Road Safety Unit. “Under Fred’s leadership and style … the Kootenay IRSU unit has been recognized as one of the most efficient in British Columbia,” Holland said. The second recipient of the 30 year police exemplary medal was Deputy Chief Constable Henry Paivarinta, who also

got his start at the Vancouver Police Department, enlisting in 1982. After three years, he transferred to the Nelson department as a constable. Paivarinta was promoted to sergeant in 2000 and the next year he became an inspector. He was appointed to deputy chief constable in 2010. “During his tenure he was a police service dog handler, forensic identification expert, community policing officer and platoon sergeant,” Holland said. “Henry has plans to retire in 2013,” the chief concluded, “and I have plans not to accept his request.”

Highly intoxicated youth on New Year’s Eve may bring a downfall to the free rides offered to all residents by B.C. Transit on that night. Meribeth Burton, spokesperson for B.C.Transit said approximately 200 drunk and rowdy youth surrounded the 1 a.m. free ride in Rossland on Tuesday morning, which prompted a call for RCMP escorts and a review of the service in general. “In the last three years, there have been problems with intoxicated youth, on our buses (in Greater Trail),” she explained. “It’s a problem and something we are taking a very hard look at.” According to Burton, the large group of intoxicated youth surrounded the bus and starting banging on it, accompanied by other, “general bad behavior.” Sergeant Robert Hawton of the Trail RCMP detachment said the police responded to the call but the youth had dispersed. No charges were laid. Burton said that driver safety was addressed a few years ago, with the hiring of a private security guard for each driver on every bus. “This year, the operator and the security detail felt they had to leave the area for safety reasons. “However, for example, Victoria offered exactly the same service, and we had not one complaint.” Approx i mate ly 400 revelers in Greater Trail boarded the New Year’s Eve ride, and 65 riders in Castlegar took advantage of the free program.

Castlegar waits before committing to regional rural business study

JIM SINCLAIR WKA Editor

It was during this month last year when a presentation was made for the benefit of Castlegar city council and chamber of commerce, the pitch outlined a concept regarding business retention and expansion. The outfit behind the idea is the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute, based at Selkirk College in Castlegar.

“It is something that will come up and council is ready to discuss it. Whether we support it or not is still up in the air.” Coun. Deb McIntosh Being touted at the time was a three-year pilot project which was just getting underway. To this point in time work has been done pertaining to Greater Trail and the Boundary country, as well as a broad crosssection of regional businesses having been mined for their input on what they’d like to see in the way of changes to the business-environment. The Castlegar decision in early 2012 was to take the matter into consideration for the

Terri MacDonald

time being. At present the issue is still worth looking at in 2013 according to councilor Deb McIntosh. “It is something that will come up and council is ready to discuss it. Whether we support it or not is still up in the air,” she added. Terri MacDonald is a driving force within the CBRDI, holding the position of Regional Innovation Chair in Rural Economic Development. She recalled the meeting of last year. “It was still early on in the process,” she said earlier this week. “We were still figuring out the logistics of how this is going to work out. At that point the chamber was quite interested but I think the council wanted to hold off and see how it rolled out in the other communities. There may be a request for another presentation to hear about what was learned from the first three pilots and gearing up for the next round.” A press release is due for

publication as of the end of this month, in which detailed information on just how some of these stakeholders plan to retain and expand business in their communities is put forth. Data on the the progress of the project will also be shared at the Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments (AKBLG) convention, set for mid-September in Vancouver. “I’m hoping to share the lessons learned at that conference,” said MacDonald. The regional innovation chair says that even though they’re currently “swimming in data” relating to business survey results from across a wide swath of Kootenay territory, the next round is already set to begin on January 21 at the Castlegar Selkirk campus for reps from the Slocan Valley, Nakusp and Golden. What’s been taking place of late is closely linked with the ‘State of the Basin’ – an effort that’s been ongoing for about five years, as explained in part on the CBRDI website (www.cdrdi. ca). “The State of the Basin is an initiative to monitor and report on information relating to well-being in the Columbia Basin

Boundary region,” it is explained on the group’s website in a release from November, 2012. “With this data, planners and decision-makers can make informed decisions about the future of our region to improve the quality of life for present and future generations. The State of the Basin was first piloted by Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) in 2008. When the Columbia Basin Rural Development Institute (RDI) was created, it brought together CBT and Selkirk College’s research assets and took on the responsibility of providing State of the Basin data moving forward.” Terri MacDonald believes in the work because she’s just as sold on the area the work is focussed on. “We know we live in a great place,” she is quoted on the group’s website, “and we want to be able to support residents and communities to continue to make it an ever better place to live.”

Beyond the suite is access to a variety of common areas which include a games room, spa room, library, dining room, coffee room, crafts room, hair salon and lounges. All areas are easily accessible, full of interesting people, engaging activities and share a wonderful sense of community. Hospitality services at Silver Kettle Village are included in

the affordable monthly rent and include weekly housekeeping, a wide selection of recreational and social activities, 24 hour emergency monitoring, shuttle bus service, and hot, delicious meals prepared by on-site chefs.

Welcome to the world of willow appreciation submitted

Castlegar Garden Club guest speaker, Jim Brockmeyer of Bluestem Nursery, will give a presentation and slideshow ‘Willows the Familiar Stranger’, on Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Community Complex. Everyone welcome. Free admission. Jim Brockmeyer, horticultural legend in the field of willows and ornamental grasses, will share his expertise on willows. As Jim says, “willows are everywhere, but we really don’t know them.” Jim’s knowledge is prodigious and his enthusiasm contagious. Willow lovers in Canada and the U.S., are spurring the wave of willow interest across North America. Liv-

ing willow tunnels, pergolas and fences are setting a trend

in botanical gardens, public spaces, playgrounds, and

backyards. Ornamental, winter interest, hedges/fedges,

branches and catkins for flower arranging, basket making, twig furniture, creeping alpine willows, the only limits are one’s imagination. Willow caskets are popular in England for their environmental friendliness. Jim’s original inspiration for Bluestem Nursery was determining which ornamental grasses were sufficiently cold hardy for the cold Canadian environment. Jim Brockmeyer started collecting ornamental grasses and building up his stock in 1989. By 1994, Bluestem Nursery was British Columbia’s first wholesale nursery specializing in ornamental grasses. A 1996 Gardens West article by Jim kicked off the mail-order

retail division. Local interest in willows inspired Jim to diversify into willows in 1996. Bluestem is now one of the preeminent suppliers of willows and grasses in both Canada and the United States, with 45 varieties of willows and 122 ornamental grasses available. With lots of help, the bluestem.ca website first went online in 2003, beginning its development into the current 300+ page resource of information and images on willows and ornamental grasses. The Castlegar Garden Club welcomes new members. For further information contact Rose Cheveldave 250.365.9600 or castlegargardenclub@ shaw.ca.

Market makes it trail staff West Kootenay Advertiser

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.

All’s well that includes learning opportunities with the program

submitted

Teck Trail Operations’ Inspiring Wellness and Learning (IWL) program has been recognized as one of the top wellness programs in Canada. The program was one of three finalists in the Benefits Canada Workplace Health and Benefit Awards, hosted in Toronto. “It’s fantastic to see this employee-run program recognized on a national stage,”

said Greg Belland, General Manager, Teck Trail Operations. “The tireless efforts of our program leaders and the enthusiastic participation of all employees, from personal health commitments to participating in events such as the Elementary School Hockey Challenge, are what make this program successful.” The focus of the IWL program is to encourage healthy

lifestyles among all employees. The program offers a wide range of healthy lifestyle and learn-to programs that include walking and yoga. Significant focus is placed on health education opportunities, including onsite kidney and m am m o g r ap hy screening. Annual health checks help employees learn about and improve their health

and there are opportunities to better understand mental health concerns with the Beyond the Blues program. Community outreach has also been a goal of the program, through events for employees, their families and the community, including the Elementary School Hockey Challenge, the Silver City Days Fun Run Corporate Challenge and the Kids-Tri triathlon. The program has

benefitted from the hard work and dedication of our Teck Wellness Coordinator Megan Olson and IWL Committee Chair Gord Menelaws. Megan is committed to improving as many lives as possible by offering diverse health-related opportunities; Gord’s can-do attitude means the events run smoothly. His longtime involvement in the community has helped the program to expand its reach

beyond our employees. Teck Trail Operations wellness programs have won numerous awards, including the Active Communities Award of Excellence from BC Recreation and Parks Association in 2009, and a Literacy Award from Canada Post in 2003. If you’d like more information please contact Gord Menelaws at 250-368-9131 or gordon.menelaws@teck.com.

Some straight talk on the markets (and the Fiscal Cliff ) SUBMITTED

Despite reasonablyf good job numbers in America, stock markets had given up some of their recent gains during the fall months because of uncertainty over who would win the U.S. presidential election. In the lead-up to the vote, daily market performance was influenced by shifts in voter intentions. When opinion polls indicated that President Barack Obama would be re-elected (which he was) that had a negative effect on the markets. Obama and the Democrats were generally viewed as less favourable for business and investors.

All of the other countries in the world, and especially Canada, are deeply concerned about our closest trading partner. Clearly, America and its president have been facing a lot of challenges since then. Over the last few months, I’m sure many of you have heard the term “U.S. fiscal cliff ” being tossed around in the media. Not too many really understood the implications of it – but the actual perception of the name “fiscal cliff ” gave ominous overtones. There had been a December 31, 2012 deadline for the Democrats and Republicans to come up with an agreement to avert the full force of some $600 Billion in spending cuts and tax hikes that were scheduled to take effect throughout 2013.

Debbie Perepolkin

The deadline passed, however, and after falling off the cliff for only one day, the House and Senate took action which prevented a fiscal shock that some economies thought would be enough to put the U.S. economy back into a recession. In both the U.S. and Europe, we have seen a pattern develop. It seems that whenever economic growth hits a roadblock, efforts are made to encourage growth. Most recently, we saw quantitative easing by the U.S. Federal Reserve, and bailouts of weak banks by the European Union. The effectiveness of these measures in creating jobs and stimulating economic expansion is questionable. However, based on the track record of central banks and governments, we expect that they will respond with unlimited money-printing if they deem it necessary. When it comes to averting the “fiscal cliff ” - the new U.S. legislation will avoid most of the scheduled tax hikes for the large majority of U.S. taxpayers and it will extend emergency unemployment benefits for one year. However, the legislation does not address larger budget issues such as deficit reduction, tax reform or raising the debt limit. In addition, it delays the automatic cuts to U.S. defense and do-

mestic spending for just two months. This deal postpones most of the fiscal adjustment, which is positive for the economy in the near term – however, the details for a longer-term solution still need to be worked out and the next deadline for action will likely be the debt ceiling in late February. While the debt ceiling situation may

produce more anxiety, a positive outcome could be an important event for investors. If the markets see a credible multi-year plan for taxes and deficit reduction, particularly one that includes tax and entitlement reform, it could be tremendously positive for the economy and the financial markets. So, what we have now is a nation who

is simply “kicking the can down the road” to avoid the immediate impact of tax hikes and spending cuts but it did little to answer the long-term deficit reduction, tax reform and spending questions. No doubt, there will be temporary relief that the cliff has passed, but the stock markets will still want to see meaningful deficit reduction plans down the road.

There is much work ahead in Washington. All of the other countries in the world – and especially Canada, are deeply concerned about our closest trading partner and the ramifications faced by us in our own country. It is so blatantly obvious that something must be done. I just wish they would all quit “playing politics” and implement some meaningful

“action plans.” As a child, I was always told that “money doesn’t grow on trees - yet when it comes to the governments of the world - apparently it does.

Horoscope Michael O’Connor

for the

Week

January 11, 2013

Tip of the Week: The first New Moon of 2013 happens on January 11 at 11:44 am PST at 21 Capricorn 46, in the Tropical Zodiac. This will produce a sobering effect which will become more noticeable as the Moon waxes to full. At best, this may be interpreted as a ‘grounding’ influence that will shift the year into high gear. Mercury plays a key role in this New Moon Seed and it too is in Capricorn which will contribute to the practical, pragmatic, strategic and disciplined tone implied in the overall chart portrait. The lingering influence of Sagittarius up to now has perpetuated visionary ideals, principal based activism, philosophical reflection and perhaps simple desires to be more leisurely. This is one of Sagittarius’s gifts – to step back and see the bigger picture. A good question to ask and to act upon is: Will 2013 prove to be any different than other years? Or will it be strewn with the usual chorus of events, excitements and dramas – the old ‘business as usual’ - ‘same shit different pile’ attitude and approach? To the extent that one lives life reactively, passively apathetically and cynically, this will be the case. Yet, we have free will and are meant to use it cooperatively with life. This is a more accurate interpretation of the word ‘destiny’, a word that is commonly misunderstood and misused. Make the most of your free will and wisdom to cooperate to create greater fulfillment and success and thereby actualize the full potential of your destiny. This is where Astrology can be of valuable assistance.

You are in a serious, sober and ambitious mood as the year gets underway. The New Moon has activated your determination to be seen, heard, recognized and rewarded. You feel the desire and perhaps the need to make some very real changes without, to match what you feel is happening within. Clarify to yourself and others what you want and, if necessary, learn ‘how to’.

A mood to go big continues. You know this will require more discipline and effort. Yet, you feel extra committed. Your sights are set on a brighter future. Many ambitions are brewing within. Regardless how much work you are doing that is apparent, you are likely doing at least as much behind the scenes. Your main interest now is how to work smarter than harder.

You are undergoing a lot of changes at the outset of this New Year – a veritable metamorphosis. It is important that you engage your imagination positively to work with this change, lest it lapse into conjuring negative hallucinations. Positively, you are looking to the power, authority and leverage that others can provide to support you.

Your relationships are getting a lot of stimulation now. This may be the source of plenty of excitement and satisfaction. At worst, others are attempting to control you. At best, these associations are guiding you to new positions, tools, methods and/or directions that will prove empowering. Take a proactive, innovative and cooperative approach for best results.

The time has come for you to make a whole host of improvements. These will be linked to your daily habit patterns affecting your overall lifestyle. Clean, clear and polish is the basic requirement. As well, take inventory of all your talents and assets and be thorough in your approach. Make the most of all you have already in preparation to add to the list soon.

Taking a creative approach to realize your power potential in the world is a central theme now. Be open to the variety of goods and/ or services you can provide and take the same approach in deciphering what outer sources can provide for you. Overall, this is a call to analyze all resources - both outgoing and incoming. Entertain all possibilities.

A good deal of activity close to home and with family is being activated now. This may basically involve an early pitch at cleaning and beautifying your living space. Investing into tools, equipment, appliances and/or decorative supplies is likely. Aim to establish an atmosphere of beauty, function and power as a basis of success for the whole family.

A wide array of places to go, people to see and errands to run are keeping you busy now and will over the next few weeks. This period also contains a good deal of creative potential. Making key contacts and/or strategic moves now will contribute to creating many new opportunities for the coming months. The sooner you can clearly decipher your direction the better.

The process of building upon new foundations continues. This is a very important and powerful time in this regard. Yet, avoid hasty choices and actions. Rather, take a slow and sure approach. This is a good time to create a healthier attitude as well, leading to increased efficiency and effectiveness. What habit patterns from the past are best left behind?

The New Moon in your sign will have the effect of launching you into this New Year. You are likely in a determined mood and are ready to take any pioneering initiatives that are necessary to succeed. Managing the results of previous choices and actions is also important. Aim to consolidate and harmonize existing realities in preparation for new assertions.

An ambitious and determined mood vies with a playful one. Making extra efforts behind the scenes, in an administrative sense, will help you to achieve this balance. So, avoid too much distraction and social activity. If you are focused and diligent and solidify your base, you will feel more at peace to take advantage of those narrower windows to get in some playtime.

The future is beckoning. To answer, you are wise to look to the bigger picture over the long term. This is basically called ‘having a vision’. By tuning-in to your intuitions, dreams and desires, clarifying these and then practically gauging the possibilities, 2013 could prove to be a major leap forward for you. As well, vote for yourself and work on your confidence levels.

When it’s not a good idea to call 9-1-1 for an ambulance Submitted

VICTORIA – Last year Emergency Medical Dispatchers at BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) answered more than 394,000 9-1-1 calls. While many of those calls involved lifethreatening situations from cardiac arrests to childbirth to motor vehicle incidents, some, however, were not of an urgent na-

ture and did not require an ambulance response.  •  I think my house is infested with fleas. Can someone come and check it out? •  I can’t get through to my cell provider. Can you help me? • My husband is driving me crazy. I need you to take him away. •  I need you to get hold of my doctor for me -- the office is

closed. •  I’m out of beer. • I swallowed toothpaste. I didn’t spit it out. Will it make me sick? • There’s a dead crow in my yard. Could I get West Nile disease from it? • I don’t need an ambulance, but if I do, how much does it cost? •   I have a doctor’s appointment in the morning. Could you

call me at 8:00 so I’m not late? •   What’s the phone number to the hospital nearest to me?   BCAS Director of Dispatch Operations Gord Kirk oversees dispatch centres in Vancouver, Victoria and Kamloops, as well as the more than 240 dispatch staff who serve the province.  He strongly recommends that 9-1-1 calls for ambulance service

be used for medical emergencies only. “It’s important to remember that we’re here to help people with emergency medical situations. Calls that are inappropriate divert resources from those who need swift medical attention.” BCAS encourages the public to dial 9-11 for assistance during a medical emergency. Alternatives to calling an ambulance include

contacting the 8-1-1 tele-health service, accessing a walk-in clinic, making an appointment with a family doctor or visiting a hospital emergency department if necessary. Hospital emergency departments triage all patients that arrive, including those by ambulance. BCAS operates under the authority of the Emergency and Health Services Com-

mission (EHSC) to provide residents and healthcare professionals with access to prehospital emergency and patient transfer services. The EHSC also oversees BC Bedline and Trauma Services BC. The EHSC is a division of the Provincial Health Services Authority, which manages high-quality specialized health care services across BC.
