NDP nomination meeting for Cariboo North Sunday Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer

PM 0040785583

This Sunday NDP members in the riding of Cariboo North will determine who their next candidate will be at a nomination meeting taking place at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Quesnel. Their choice is between Quesnel city councillor and forest industry worker Sushil Thapar and 150 Mile rancher and former Cariboo Regional District director Duncan Barnett. Both candidates will speak and answer questions. The meeting kicks off at 1 p.m. and will feature keynote speaker

Adrian Dix, B.C. NDP leader. NDP Constituency Association president Brian Kennelly said the public will have an opportunity to see and hear Dix and CaribooChilcotin NDP candidate Charlie Wyse talk about the NDP’s ideas to change B.C. for the better. “It’s a chance for people to hear Adrian’s ideas for positive change and I think that will resonate with a lot of people because I think a lot of people are waiting for change,” Kennelly said. “Dix has been putting forward practical ideas to support good jobs, provide workers with better training and make post-secondary education more affordable for

young people.” Kennelly has been part of the NDP Association on and off for 30 years. “This was a Social Credit riding for quite a while, and then we had an NDP MLA by the name of Frank Garden, and then we had a few terms with a Liberal candidate and then it went to Bob Simpson who was elected for two terms with the NDP,” he recalled, adding Simpson left caucus in January 2011, and then decided to run as an Independent. “There is a sizeable portion of people who worked during the elections of 2005 and 2009 to

get an NDP MLA elected who believe in the NDP values and platform and want to see that continued,” Kennelly said, adding it’s difficult to know what an Independent’s philosophy and without a party platform, what an Independent stands for. “I guess two questions are: who they are accountable to and who their audience is, will they be listened to without being a member of government or a member of the Opposition?” Although only previously registered NDP members are eligible to vote, the general public is welcome to attend and hear the speakers.

Logging truck collides with pick-up There were no injuries sustained in a twovehicle motor vehicle accident that happened Monday evening on Highway 97 south near the Mission Road turnoff to Sugar Cane. Williams Lake RCMP, 150 Mile Department and BC Ambulance responded to the accident at approximately 6:25 p.m., Monday on Jan. 14. The RCMP said it is believed that an empty logging truck was travelling north towards Williams Lake when it spun out of control causing the truck to go into the north bound

ditch. The two trailers that were being towed by the truck came to rest, blocking both north bound lanes. A pick up truck traveling south was subsequently struck by the rear trailer of the logging truck. Although the vehicle was severely damaged, the occupant in the pick up truck was not injured nor was the logging truck driver. BC Ambulance Service confirmed it did not transport any injured people from the scene. The matter is still under investigation.

accident, trouble returning from a foreign country or they need bail money. Victims don’t verify the story until after the money has been sent as the caller specifically asks that they do not want other relatives to know what has happened by asking “Can you please help me? I’m in jail (or in the hospital, or in some type of financial need). But don’t tell dad. He would kill me if he found out, please send the money ASAP. I’m scared.” Wanting to help their grandchild, the victim sends money by a money transfer company such as Money Gram or Western Union. Variations on the scam exist such as an old neighbour, a friend of the family etc. but predominantly the emergency scam is directed toward the grandparents.

Scam on senior averted in lakecity On Jan. 14, a male who fraudulently identified himself as a lawyer contacted a local family by telephone and requested several thousands of dollars to be wired to him via Western Union to cover legal fees for his representation of a family member. The family immediately became suspicious and reported the matter to the Williams Lake RCMP. Though the “Emergency Scam” (or sometimes referred to as the “Grandparent Scam”) has been around for years, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre warns the public to be on alert after noting a marked increase in the number of complaints in the last two months. In the typical scenario, a grandparent receives a phone call from a con-artist claiming to be one of his or her grandchildren.

Salvation Army gets new kitchen in Williams Lake Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer The ribbon was cut to officially open the newly renovated kitchen at the Salvation Army community and family services building on Borland Street in Williams Lake Jan. 15. What the Salvation Army thought would be an $88,000 project unfolded into a $380,000 project because of the increased volumes of people accessing the soup kitchen and the required upgrades. “All of a sudden because of the volume of traffic coming through the building, we were told we had to upgrade the building to current codes,” Salvation Army Cpt. Claudine Kadonaga said, adding those costs also included new furnaces and duct systems. Eliza Mitchell, a rancher from Tatlayoko Lake, is a director on the Garfield Weston Foundation, and a member of the Weston family. She was

able to secure funding from the foundation — $185,000 — and the Salvation Army divisional headquarters contributed $150,000 toward the renovations. “If we had to do it on our own, Williams Lake had run out of funds and it wouldn’t have happened,” Kadonaga explained. Mitchell said her grandparents were the original ones to support the Salvation Army in Canada. “They made the first donation in 1956 and have done so every year since,” she said. Over the last three years, a total of $515,000 has been spent renovating the building, making an exercise room, a large activity centre, classrooms, small meeting rooms, a larger eating area, and larger food bank storage area. It’s been suggested that the Salvation Army could have bought a building for the amount of money used for renovations, but Kadonaga said there’s

Claudine Kadonaga cut the ribbon during the official opening of the Salvation Army’s newly renovated kitchen. “no way” they could have found another building that would have suited their needs and provide the operating space required. Operating on an annual budget of $696,783, for programming and 13 staff, the Salvation Army serves 2,000 individuals through the food bank. Without its 45 to 50 volunteers, Kadonaga said the Salvation Army could not operate. Outdated bread and

produce arrives from local grocery stores. “We’re reclaiming food that would have otherwise been thrown out,” Kadonaga added. Non perishables come from local food drives, and every three to six weeks a truck load arrives from the Canada Food Bank Association, with foods she said are filler items such as cereal, cookies, personal hygiene items. They aren’t staples, but they help to augment

hampers. Present users of the food bank are 80 per cent on social assistance, 13 per cent on pension, and seven per cent working or on Employment Insurance. Between 2007 and 2012, the Salvation Army saw a 1,000 per cent increase in service needs. “A lot of that is not because the needs went up by 1,000 per cent, but with all the renovations and increase in staffing,

we’ve got added ability to provide services to more people.” In 2012, 456 new households accessed the service. People who used the food bank for the first time or were amalgamated because they moved into another house. The first two weeks of January have shown a 25 per cent decrease in the numbers of people receiving hampers compared to the same time period in 2012. “That’s an encouraging picture,” Kadonaga said, adding she’s hoping those first two weeks are an indication of the future. “It would be great because unfortunately our donations over Christmas were down about 40 per cent for food items.” Presently about 85 lunches are served Monday to Friday. In 2012 25,899 meals were served free of charge in the dining room, plus 30 lunches daily to needy students at Marie Sharpe elementary school. Those meals and food bank distribution totalled

a over $500,000 in food value, Kadonaga said. “Not bad considering our food services budget, which includes the building and everything is $300,000.” The thrift store generates $310,000 in sales, of which $115,000 is granted as a profit back to food services. Kadonaga’s been asked if the food bank is sustainable and answered it’s not always a “hand out” but rather a “hand up.” “It’s sustainable as long as we can give people a hand up,” she explained, adding spiritual and emotional development, drug and alcohol counselling, employment development, fitness, games, and craft programs, life skill classes, budgeting courses, and group meetings are some of the ways they try to meet that challenge. With the new kitchen the plan is to offer basic line-cook training, as well as janitorial and retail merchandising training.

Initial Options discussion continues at open meeting tonight Gaeil Farrar Tribune Staff Writer In a special open board meeting Tuesday School District 27 trustees hinted at the direction they might take when it comes to ratifying or rejecting recommendations for closing and consolidating schools in Williams Lake contained in their Initial Options Report. The trustees scheduled the meeting to begin open discussions on proposals in the report, taking into consideration input gathered during the recent public consultation process. But given several indepth updates and reports from staff and two public question periods, the meeting went into overtime, continuing on for four hours and prompting

the trustees to call a second special open board meeting for tonight to continue the discussion. The trustees only had time to voice their opinions on the recommendation to make Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools into one grades 7 to 12 secondary school on two campuses. They didn’t have time to express their opinions on proposals for closing Wildwood, Glendale, and Kwaleen elementary schools which will be the primary focus of discussion tonight. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. and opens with a half-hour question period for the public on items on the agenda. Meetings also close with questions from the public on items not on the agenda. There were about a

dozen people in attendance for Tuesday’s meeting. Several people took the microphone to express concerns about issues such as extra portables needed to support the influx of new students at Cataline, Chilcotin Road and Nesika elementary schools from the schools proposed for closure. There were also concerns expressed about losing the year round program at Glendale elementary, and why the trustees didn’t present alternate options for the one secondary school on two campus model. One speaker said many parents also felt their concerns were not being heard and that the decisions to close schools had already been made. Secretary treasurer

Bonnie Roller presented a comprehensive update on current enrolment figures along with projected enrolment for 10 years into the future. Her report also included a comprehensive analysis of bus routes; a detailed financial report on implications and savings for each school proposed for closure; and details on what would be needed to accommodate students at the elementary schools receiving students from the schools proposed for closure. Superintendent Mark Thiessen presented a detailed report on research staff had done on how Salmon Arm and Dawson Creek operate their one school/two campus secondary programs. He also presented two options on how the con-

cept might be implemented at Columneetza and Williams Lake secondary schools. Several trustees spoke in support of the second scenario that would see one campus being a middle school for grades 7 to 9 and the other a senior campus with grades 10 to 12, but still allowing for some travel opportunities between schools for electives, still under the one school/two campus management option. Trustee Doug Neufeld noted that keeping the one school/two campus model allows for more flexibility when it comes to offering courses for students and movement of teachers to accommodate the programs offered. Trustee Jackie Austin said she preferred the middle school to be lo-

cated at the Columneetza campus which is further away from the downtown core than is the WLSS campus. She noted that parents had expressed concerns about young Grade 7 students having easy access to going downtown unsupervised during their lunch breaks. After the meeting Neufeld and Boehm concurred with Austin that the middle school should be located on the Columneetza campus. Boehm also noted that the idea of making Nesika elementary part of Columneetza secondary and consolidating all secondary students on that enlarged campus was rejected by parents in the Our Kids, Our Future public consultations of a few years ago because it would mean

making WLSS into one large elementary school. She and Neufeld noted that parents didn’t like the idea of creating one mega-elementary school that would funnel students into the downtown core. Neufeld also noted that creating a mega-elementary school would also require the closure of more elementary schools in the Williams Lake bowl area than are currently proposed for closure. He said it was also unlikely that the Ministry of Education would approve of making the city’s newest and specialty equipped secondary school into an elementary school. All of the reports shared at the Tuesday meeting will be on the district website linked to the latest Initial Options Report update.

Search on for beloved three-legged orange tabby Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer A Nimpo Lake family is hoping someone will find their cat Happy Feet Pete last seen running up Midnight Drive to Eleventh Avenue Lane on Jan. 11. Pete is an orange cat, missing his right hind foot. Tracey Walker found him at the Nimpo Lake dump on Jan. 2. She’s made it her mission to rescue cats from the dump and routinely visits the dump to see if any cats are hanging out there. “Our dump out here is kind of an open pit dump,” Walker said, adding it’s located a few hundred feet back from the highway. “I started last year making sure there were no cats at the dump. In 2011, we moved four cats from the dump over the Christmas weekend.” The cats were trapped because they were very fearful. The Walkers found homes for two, kept one, and gave one to the BC SPCA Williams Lake. “The SPCA has been great. Last winter I transported 19 puppies out of here to the SPCA. They’ve been amazing.” On Jan. 2, she did her usual stop and there had been a bit of fresh snow a few days before. When she jumped out and looked for cat tracks in the snow, she approached an old camper that had slipped over, an orange cat ran out and headed to a pile of metal scraps and vehicles. “Heh buddy, I’m coming back for you this afternoon,” Walker told the cat. After her shift at the Nimpo Lake post office,

A Nimpo Lake family is hoping someone has seen their newly adopted cat Happy Feet Pete who has been missing in Williams Lake since Saturday, Jan. 12. she went home, picked up her trap and a can of sardines, and returned to the dump. As she emerged from her truck, she deliberately made a ton of noise, and walked toward the camper. “I could see that he was curled up sleeping in there so I could see that he was very tired,” she recalled, adding it took three different comments for her to finally awake him. He started meowing at her, she began feeding him from her hands, and then picked him up and put him in the trap and brought him home. “He was the sweetest cat,” she said. “We named him Happy Feet Pete because those front feet of his never stop. He’s always kneading and I had to go in there with either my work pants or snow pants because when he sat on my lap, if I just had jogging pants or jeans on it hurt really badly,” she laughed.

When he was kneading, while he was sitting, the absence of his right hind foot caused him to wiggle his bum back and forth and it would slide on the floor. “It was the cutest thing. I’ve never seen a cat do that before. We decided that the feet he had left were happy.” It did not take long for the family to decide they wanted to keep Pete and didn’t want him transferred to a shelter. Their nine-year-old Maria was excited because they’d lost an orange tabby cat not too long ago. My husband and I both don’t work at really high paying jobs so sometimes we’ll go to the community and ask for help with the cats we rescue,” Walker said. “We’ve got lots of people here that have too many animals and we’ve got people that have money who don’t mind helping out.” The community raised $190 to take Pete to the

Williams Lake Veterinary Hospital and Dr. Ross Hawkes checked him out and said his leg was fine, but he will need some arthritis management. He was neutered on Jan. 10 and when the Walkers picked him up they placed him in their pickup truck inside a large dog kennel with a litter box, house, food and water, all insulated to keep him warm. They were staying with some friends in Wil-

liams Lake. Unfortunately the next day, when the truck door was opened for a few moments, Pete bolted. Walker knocked on many doors in the neighbourhood of Eleventh Avenue Lane asking people to keep an eye out for him, and said people were very receptive. “People were great and said if they see him they will let the vet hospital know,” Walker said. The family left Williams Lake on the weekend to return home, sad they didn’t have Pete. “Maria was crying last night, but I told her it’s OK and we have lots of people trying to help us.” Pete is on quite a few different Facebook pages throughout Williams Lake and area and there are lots of people communicating back and forth, but the only word the family has had so far is that somebody thought they saw him at 2 p.m. Monday on Eleventh Avenue Lane. The family’s home phone isn’t working right now, but Walker or her husband Jeff can be reached at 250-7423405.

NO GLASS IN RECYCLING CARTS PLEASE DO NOT put glass in the recycling cart. Glass in the recycling cart could end up broken. Broken glass spoils the recyclables and puts the workers who do the sorting at a great risk of injury. Instead of putting glass in the curb side recycling cart, it can be taken to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station or Canadian Tire.

Here are some easy do’s and don’ts that can assist everyone in making the collection of recyclables and solid waste easier for you, as well as the City of Williams Lake’s contractor.

sponsored by:



Don’t put your carts on the street the night before your collection day. The cart’s subject to vandalism.

Have the garbage/recycling cart at the curb before 7:00 am. Take the garbage/recycling cart off the curb the same day as it is collected.

Sunday, February 17th 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm sponsored by:


Residents are asked to put garbage and recycling carts on the curb the morning of their collection day, not the night before, and to remove them from the curb as soon as possible following collection.

The proposed term of the lease is for two years. The consideration to be received by the City for the disposition is, not including HST, $3,455.88 for years one and two.

Cindy Bouchard Manager of Legislative Services City of Williams Lake 450 Mart Street Williams Lake, BC V2G 1N3 A5


Please bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Bank.

Don’t put the garbage/recycling carts any closer together than 1 meter.

Put shredded paper in a bag. Loose paper may escape when tipping the cart.

Don’t leave your cart on the curb. This interferes with snow removal or street cleaning.

Record the serial number on the side of your cart to identify your cart from your neighbours.

Don’t put your cart any closer than 2 meters from any obstruction such as vehicles or landscaping.

Ensure the lid of the cart is fully closed. Partially opened lids will not be picked up. Clean all recyclables before putting them in the recycling container.

Don’t take the carts when you move. The carts belong to that address, NOT TO YOU.

Avoid putting organic material, such as grass clippings, branches, or garden waste, in the solid waste cart. These items only add unnecessary weight to the solid waste stream and increase the costs for every resident in Williams Lake. This material can be brought to the Central Cariboo Transfer Station on Frizzi Road and dropped off free of charge. The only items that are permitted go into the curb side recycling cart are: 1. Paper products – office paper, magazines, newspapers. 2. Cardboard – corrugated cardboard and regular cardboard such as a cereal box. 3. Plastics – must have the recycling symbol on it and the number inside the symbol must be 1 through 7. No Styrofoam allowed. 4. Metal food cans – food or beverage containers. Note: all above mentioned products must be clean.

Sunday, March 3 2:45 pm to 4:15 pm sponsored by: For more information contact the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex 250-398-7665

Other recyclable material, such as glass, lead acid batteries, or propane bottles that cannot be put in the curb side recycling cart can be dropped off at the Central Cariboo Transfer Station. Even more recyclable items can be brought to several locations in Williams Lake that participate in the product stewardship program. A list of these companies can be found at the Encorp website (, the Encorp toll free number 1-800-330-9767, or by calling the BC Recycling Hotline at 1-800-667-4321.

City always looking to improve on service

What to make of Idle no More



e’ve heard from residents about snow removal this winter, and I want to assure everyone that when it snows, every available piece of equipment is out and crews are working hard to clear the snow. Council has increased the snow budget over last year by $70,000, up to From the n e a r l y Mayor’s a half a Chair million Kerry Cook dollars. P r i ority is given to the downtown core, and routes to the hospital and schools. Clearing the snow from the downtown can only be done at night, and complete snow clearing everywhere can take days. City staff work hard to remove snow promptly, and you can help them out by not parking on the street overnight, and waiting to put your garbage and recycling carts out the morning of your pickup. The City is always looking to improving our delivery of service, and we appreciate comments and questions. The process of hiring a new chief administrative officer for the city is moving along well. We had interest from over 90 candidates, we have done the screening, and we are in the interview process. We’re happy with the caliber of candidates. Stay tuned! With all of the news in the last few months about the rural fire protection agreement with the CRD, I want to stress the importance a positive, constructive relationship. Despite disagreements, the city is committed to finding ways to work together in a respectful manner. The city has always intended to deliver the service; the issue is strictly around agreeing on the cost of providing fire protection. Kerry Cook is the mayor of Williams Lake.

Our Viewpoint

Don’t be idle tomorrow The scenes painted by the thousands who’ve lined Canadian streets for the Idle No More rally has packed undeniable power. So it would be unfortunate if that power is allowed to fade like some emotional scene in last month’s movie as the media gaze moves on to the next issue of the day. Protecting the land. Protecting the water. Providing the education and employment opportunities for people to lift themselves out of poverty. These are issues central not just to First Nations people, but to Canadians in general. And few among us would disagree these are things we would like to see enshrined as guiding principles for our nation. That said, few among us would disagree these are principles that existed, or at least should have existed, long before Chief Theresa Spence and Attawapiskat entered the national consciousness.

And that is what concerns us. We seem to have energy to stand up and demand change. But we question our stamina and our ability to follow through, to bring about that change. Marches, signs and sweeping statements are a great way to attract attention. But they need to be followed with pinpoint demands, plans of action, transparency in implementation and accountability at the end of the process. And ultimately, the engine for making that happen is the voter. “Be the change you want to see” is a cliche because it is true. Take charge of yourself and your community and keep plugging away until the changes you want occur. If you support the goals of Idle No More, don’t be idle no more for just a little while. Pay attention to the final two words. Be idle no more. - Cowichan News Leader Pictorial

have mixed feelings about the Idle No More protests. There are growing divisions within the First Nations leadership, and the lack of clarity on how best to address First Nations’ poverty and unresolved rights and title claims. However, we must be very careful not to judge these protests too quickly or too harshly. The freedom to protest is a key tenet of a healthy democracy. While we might be inconvenienced by protests or even disagree with the reasons for the MLA protest, it’s imMusings portant to Bob Simpson remember that the freedom to protest is a fundamental democratic right. We must take care that our impatience with the personal inconvenience does not enable our government to exercise authoritarian control over our freedom to express ourselves. The Idle No More protests have been a long time coming. They are a result of increasing frustration with treaty processes that are set up to fail, an Indian Act that maintains a paternalistic relationship with First Nations, and the development of natural resources that continue to have unresolved ownership claims. Our federal and provincial governments pay lip service to resolving these long-standing issues but their focus on accelerating the development of natural resources has brought the issue of resource title and benefit sharing to a head. In the absence of consultation processes that work, clarity of ownership over these resources, and equitable sharing of the benefits of resource development, First Nations’ frustrations have built to the point that they feel compelled to take to the streets. When the treaty table doesn’t work, when the government won’t resolve long-standing legal rights issues, and when companies and the government make money from natural resources to which they don’t have clear title, what is left for First Nations to do but disrupt the status quo to force action on these issues? Instead of grumbling, if we take the time to educate ourselves about these issues and join the call for reform maybe this time our political leaders will finally start doing the hard work of resolving these complex issues. Bob Simpson is the Independent MLA for Cariboo North.

A simple questionnaire would be nice Editor: Everybody has an opinion. Everybody has a right to an opinion. Not every opinion is right. This old cowboy’s opinion. Re: South Lakeside Drive and Highway 20 intersection, and the road leading up to Walmart and Prosperity Ridge. After spending some time in reflection on last year’s frustrated dealing with Mayor Kerry Cook and manager of engineering ser-

vices Geoff Goodall, it occurred to me if the City of Williams Lake was interested in doing what is best for all concerned that the city mayor and council would put out a questionnaire asking city residents a couple of very basic questions. 1. Are you happy with the present intersection from Highway 20 to Hodgson Road? Yes or no. 2. Do you wish the City of Williams Lake would start rebuilding present intersections and a road to Prosperity Ridge before an alter-

nate route into and out of Prosperity Ridge is built? Yes or no. For the safety of residents and businesses on South Lakeside Drive, also for more cost-effective construction with minimal traffic interference. I do not wish the city to spend more money on South Lakeside Drive until the road out of Prosperity Ridge, as originally planned, is built. Peter Epp Williams Lake

Portable classrooms are an unfit learning environment Editor: School boards in numerous school districts in B.C. are striving to get rid of portable classrooms and get students into real classrooms in school buildings. At the meeting of the School District 27 trustees on Tuesday, Jan. 15 the board heard a presentation about the closure of fringe schools (Kwaleen elementary, Glendale elementary and Wildwood elementary) from the secretary treasurer. She said: “We can put two portables at Nesika (elementary),

drop two into Chilcotin Road (elementary). “And we can put two at Cataline (elementary) if we can find the space on the school grounds. “Space for students will be tight at Chilcotin Road but I think we can do it.” In other words, six new portables. The trustees stared into their laptop screens or nodded their heads. Portable classrooms are not a good learning environment. They are also expensive to heat and expensive to maintain.

If the school board goes ahead with the school closures, parents need to be concerned about their children winding up in portables. They need to protest in the strongest possible terms that this is an unacceptable solution to the board’s financial problem. It must not be solved at the expense of a reasonable learning environment for some children. This is an adult problem. Don’t make children pay the price. John Dressler Williams Lake

Thunder rally to Fulton Classic win Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer The Williams Lake Thunder senior girls’ basketball team drove through all challengers on the weekend, bringing home the Clarence Fulton Classic championship from Vernon. The Thunder edged the Princess Margaret Mustangs 58-53 Saturday night in the final to take the title. Ana Lomavatu, Latasha Diaz, Montana Reid and Dakota Bailey were the team’s top scorers. Reid also hauled down the most rebounds. Thunder coach Raj Lalli said it was a tough battle, but added the girls’ late free throw shooting proved to be the difference maker. “During the first quarter both teams struggled to score,” Lalli said. “It was about 7-5 after the first quarter. By half we’d taken the lead 2521, but they took the lead from us

with about four minutes to go.” Lomavatu then hit the Thunder’s only three-pointer of the weekend to put her team back on top with time winding down. “From there it became more of a free throw game where we made three out of our five to win by five,” Lalli said. The Thunder began its tournament with a 61-39 win over Trail’s J.L. Crowe Hawks, before beating the host Clarence Fulton, 52-47, to advance to Saturday night’s final. Lomavatu, Reid and Diaz were the team’s top scorers in both games. “This was probably the best tournament that this team of girls I’ve been coaching the past three years has had,” Lalli said. “They were mentally strong, emotionally strong, and they had no major lapses in defence or offence. “Even when we struggled in the first quarter in the final there were still a lot of opportunities — it just

Groundwater 1-3 to start Scotties Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Williams Lake has representation at the B.C. Scotties Tournament of Hearts provincial curling championship. Simone Groundwater (skip), Laura Ball (third), Surrey’s Mallory Sandhu (second) and Cindy Brady (lead) qualified after successfully competing in the second of three women’s qualification events at the North Shore Winter Club in North Vancouver Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.

The team is now in the midst of the competition — which began Jan. 14 and wraps up Jan. 20 at the Cloverdale Curling Club. Groundwater’s rink began play Monday, dropping a heartbreaking 8-7 loss — giving up one in the final end — to New Westminster’s Kirsten Fox rink. Groundwater’s second match was against Juan de Fuca’s Sarah Wark rink. The Williams Lake rink played right alongside Wark for the first seven ends, however, gave up five in the eighth to

drop the draw. Tuesday, Groundwater’s rink bounced back with an impressive 10-5 win over Vernon’s Roberta Kuhn rink. Groundwater stuck three in the first and four in the seventh to walk away with its first win of the competition. Later, Groundwater’s rink fell to New Westminster’s Lori Olsen rink, 7-5, in a tightly contested draw. Olsen scored three in the third, but Groundwater answered back with two of her own in the sixth, before Ol-

sen, again, sat two in the seventh to take the victory. The Williams Lake rink, coming into Wednesday, was scheduled to meet tournament favourite Kelly Scott of Kelowna, before playing four more draws following that to wrap up its round-robin Friday.

Bantam T-wolves take silver in Kamloops The Williams Lake Bantam Tier 2 Timberwolves skated away from a 10-team tournament in Kamloops on the weekend as silver medalists. The team played two games in round robin play Friday, winning both. The first was a 3-0 shutout over Semiahmoo, followed by a 6-1 bashing of Kelowna. In game one Griffen Outhouse posted the shutout for the T-wolves. Saturday, Williams Lake continued its winning ways beating Westside — one of the top ranked teams in the prov-

ince — 3-2. In game two Saturday Williams Lake skated to a 3-1 win over Penticton, capping off its round robin with a perfect 4-0 record. Sunday, Williams Lake faced Kamloops in the semi-final, winning 5-1 to advance to the final to meet Westside once again. This was the third tournament this year that Williams Lake met Westside in a final. Williams Lake lost the first two in close games — the first in overtime, and the second by a lone goal. Williams Lake jumped out to an early 2-0 lead,

but penalty trouble and some bad luck allowed Westside to score two quick goals to claw back into the contest. A debatable goal further added to the T-wolves’ frustration, allowing Westside to increase its lead to 4-2. Williams Lake would answer back to make it 4-3, but couldn’t put the equalizer past the Westside netminder. The team said despite the loss they played exceptional hockey and put together a strong team effort. They added they’re very much looking forward to meeting Westside again.

Together We Can forum held in Williams Lake Monica Lamb-Yorski Tribune Staff Writer Organizations supporting children and families at risk attended a two-day forum this week in Williams Lake. Hosted by Knucwentwecw Society of Williams Lake at the Gibraltar Room, the Together We Can forum was an opportunity for organizations in the region to network. The back wall was lined with tables and displays from each organization and throughout the two days, spokespersons from each organization took a turn at the microphone. Sheila Dick, health administrator for the Canim Lake Band, said one of the challenges for her staff is the fact that people “have the right to live at risk.” People might be brought to the hospital, but in a day or two return home and are back to some of the same habits. “As a staff all we can do is walk this road together and be a really good strong unit and do the best that we can,” Dick said. “I do admire anyone who works in that situation.” Dick has noticed over the years that it takes time for people to trust workers in the community because they don’t know if that person is going to stay or not. “We’ve had a nurse in our community for 10 years now and we’re very proud of that,” she said. Canim Lake also has a Circle of Life HIV-AIDS support group that’s existed for more than 15 years. “Our people will come home HIV-AIDS infected and if we don’t do something about their situation they could share that infection with others in the community,” Dick said. “It could become an epidemic.” Volunteers who are part of the group, many of them youth, meet once a month in the community and hold intervention workshops. “They attend conferences and have been well-trained,” Dick said. “Every few years we have to recruit new volunteers and every year we have an AIDS walk and candlelight ceremony for those people who have passed away because of AIDS.” RCMP Cst. Kevin Neufeld and Cst. Becky Munro are with First Nations Community Policing. “There is a tripartite agreement between the federal government, provincial government and the First Nations bands that allows for members to work with the communities on reserves,” Neufeld explained. In Williams Lake there are four First Nations policing liaisons working in the city and at Soda Creek, Sugar Cane, Alkali Lake and Canoe Creek. Munro is one of three liaisons stationed in Alexis

A contract is signed between the three parties with responsibilities on all sides. “The band is responsible to provide a community consultive group that comes up with a list of expectations for the First Nations policing section to use as a general guideline,” Neufeld said. Examples might include youth engagement, elder engagement, and community engagement, such as attending potlucks. Sometimes activities will be driven by a police officer’s own interests. For Neufeld it’s fast pitch. “We have a fast pitch team made up of young men from Sugar Cane, Soda Creek, Dog Creek and Canim Lake and we play at 100 Mile House,” he said. “That interaction with everyone on the ball team is amazing. It lets them see us in a different light, that we are normal people outside the uniform.” Neufeld also enjoys interacting with young students at the Little Chief primary school at Sugar Cane. “I’m able to have beneficial talks about stranger safety,” he said, adding it’s about being proactive, which means often the police are encouraging community members to access the organizations attending the forum. Obviously the police have enforcement responsibilities as well, however, the healing circle restorative justice program is one aspect of his job Neufeld finds rewarding. “For the most part these young kids are good kids that have made a mistake and are willing to take responsibility for what they’ve done wrong,” he explained. “Through volunteers we’re able to arrange a circle where victims are involved,

an elder is involved, and everyone sits down to talk about what’s happened.” After the discussion the offender receives some sanctions. “Maybe they will chop wood, help at the rink, or a ball field. It brings some responsibilities to that youth and gives them a sense of pride giving back to their community,” Neufeld said. It’s a route they try to take more and more, although it doesn’t always work. “If a person is a chronic offender, the judge won’t lean to go that route,” Neufeld added. Brenda Kennedy, New Beginnings Program manager at Three Corners Health said her organization serves Sugar Cane, Soda Creek and Canoe Creek, and people from those communities living in Williams Lake. They work very closely with pregnant women, meeting with them twice a month up until the baby is six months old. The moms meet with a dietician, they receive food boxes, learn crafts, and attend a luncheon with other pregnant moms. “An elder also comes in to support the moms, we have a home visiting program, and we try to provide transportation,” Kennedy said. When a baby is born, the staff meets with the mom and plans the type of baby celebration she is comfortable with. Each woman is presented with a blanket made by staff and people in the community. “A lot of well-wishing goes into the making of the blanket,” Kennedy added. Focusing on early attachment is also a priority, and if staff notices a baby is not reaching certain milestones, they will put the mom in

contact with the Child Development Centre. There’s also a strong focus on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) prevention with education beginning as early as possible. “It takes a lot for a birth mom or a grandma to come forward,” Kennedy said. “We walk with our moms and grandmas and help them to get that little child assessed because when they go to school it’s tough and is not a good experience.” If a child gets assessed, then a “road map” outlining both strengths and areas where they will have difficulty can be developed. A young girl was not going to graduate, received a late FASD diagnosis, but eventually graduated. “She has a driver’s license and is doing so well because we figured out what her strengths were and did not focus on what she couldn’t do well,” Kennedy said, adding the most powerful thing was to see her in her grad dress. Lynn Dunford has been with Three Corners Health for 13 years and said her focus is to have fun with the preventative part of addictions programming. During the National Addictions Awareness Week campaign they organized 121 youth together for the Amazing Race where they broke them up in teams and sent them out to various resources in the community. “We hoped they would see for themselves that these kinds of supports are out there and if the need ever arose they would feel more comfortable getting in touch with those services,” Dunford said. A popular event is the So You Hate Christmas campaign because there are many people who struggle at Christmas time. “We just want to make them aware of all the resources that are available to help them get through that time of year,” she said.

The Williams Lake Library kicks off Literacy Week this Saturday, Jan. 19 with special events for kids. Games for kids start at 10:45 a.m. to be followed by a special story time at 11 a.m. with local author Victoria Greenley and illustrator Raylene Hale who will showcase their new book I Don’t Like My Grumpy Face.

Film Club screens The Intouchables Tuesday Krista Liebe Special to The Tribune And now for something simple, absolutely crowd pleasing. That is the film presented by the Williams Lake Film Club next Tuesday, Jan. 22, at the Gibraltar Room, 7 p.m. Back doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the Gibraltar Room is located in the Cariboo Memorial Complex by Boitanio Park. The Intouchables has broken box office records in its native France and across Europe. The film is the official entry of France to the Best Foreign Language Film at the 85th Academy Awards 2013 and is one of the selected five contenders. Because it is such fun to watch. However, that does not mean it is a piece of fluff. The film does touch on serious subjects like immigration, poverty, and severe physical disability. But it does this in such a manner that you are thoroughly entertained all the way through the story. And the story is this: newcomer Omar Sy plays Driss, just out of jail and trying to collect welfare. But first he has to prove that he is trying to get a job. So he casually applies as caregiver to a wealthy quadriplegic,

To his surprise and indignation he actually does get the job, on a try-out basis. The jailbird and the millionaire click, and Driss brings some new things into Phillipe’s life. Like taking him on fast rides around town, introducing him to marijuana, cracking quadriplegic jokes, and so much more. Even more amazing is that this film is based on a true story. Philippe, played by Francois Cluzet, was the CEO of the

well-known Champagne Vineyard Pommery. His real name is Philippe Pozzo di Borgo. After his horrible accident he needed a caretaker around the clock and he chose 21-year old Algerian Abdel Yasmin Sellou, who just got out of jail. He actually ended up working for Phillippe for 10 years and they developed a deep friendship. They travelled together many, many times and ended up living not too far from

each other; Philippe with his second wife and two daughters in Morocco and Sellou with his wife and three children in Algiers. The real Philippe and Sellou are introduced at the end of the film. The film is based on the autobiography of Pozzo di Borgo, which was published in France in 2001 titled Le second souffle (The second Breath). One of Pozzo di Borgo’s conditions when making this film was that five percent of the proceeds shall  be donated to his foundation for the handicapped, called Simon von Cyrene. So far the foundation has received about one

million Euros. And this means that the proceeds of our screening next Tuesday, Jan. 22, will benefit two causes, mainly the LDA, the Williams Lake Chap-

ter of the Association for Students with Learning Disabilities, and the Foundation for the Handicapped. Admission is $9 regular, $8 for Film Club members, and

Flyover slide show at the library Friday The Cariboo Regional District’s Williams Lake Branch Library will host an evening with local author Sage Birchwater and photographer Chris Harris on Friday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. The event will focus on their most recent collaboration, Flyover: British Columbia’s Cariboo Chilcotin Coast: an aviation legacy. “This is a chance for anyone who may have missed the slide show book launch in October to come and see some amazing photographs and hear some interesting stories,” says Birchwater. The aviation history of the Cariboo Chilco-

tin is rich and colourful with float planes coming first, followed by wheeled planes and helicopters. Harris and Birchwater take you on an aerial journey, told visually through Harris’ photos and Birchwater’s storytelling to draw on the memories and experiences of both bush-pilot pioneers. The evening will include a slideshow presentation with commentary by Harris and Birchwater, and time for questions and answers.  You can also expect to hear about upcoming works and projects. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Depression—the way out comes to Williams Lake LeRae Haynes Special to The Tribune Rita Corbett is an instructor at a unique workshop coming to Williams Lake this month: one that deals with something that can change who you are, how to feel and how you relate to important persons in your life. The workshop is Depression—the way out, described by Corbett as “a mental health education program with scientific credence for everything in it.” The workshop starts on Jan. 28 and goes through March 18, with participants meeting for eight Monday nights and then doing work on their own for 12 further weeks with support and backup. “The guy who originated this workshop, internist Dr. Neil Nedley, divided it into 10 ‘hits’ or categories of things that cause depression. “These include things like genetics, developmental issues, whether you were raised by both of your biological parents, unresolved or recent grief, nutrition, lifestyle, frontal lobe issues such as brain injuries, and addiction issues,” Corbett explained. “You need four ‘hits’ to be categorized as depressed. What we do in the workshop is take the ones we can modify and get rid of them. Everyone has some of these things, but if we can modify the ones we can change, we lessen the number of hits until we’re not depressed.”

Instructor Rita Corbett is bringing a unique depression workshop to Williams Lake starting Jan. 28. She explained that they get doctor referrals for the workshop, and added that people come to the workshop because it works. “People are sick of side effects and failure and they don’t know what else to do. “Anyone can take the workshop, and literally anyone will benefit from it, even the teacher,” she continued. “It’s a mental health education course where you learn to get the most from your brain. Whether you’re suffering from depression, or are a caretaker or loved one, you can benefit.” Depression is not a bad attitude, according to Corbett. “Attitude makes a difference, but they’ve discovered that before depressive symptoms start, brain scans show

It’s FUN! It’s FREE! It’s

that there is reduced circulation and function in the frontal lobes,” she noted. “One of the first things we do is to increase circulation in the frontal lobes, and sometimes that all it takes for people. Often just one or two things prove to be so helpful. The hippocampus changes 20 per cent in one year, so if we change our thinking, we can become different people over time.” The workshop covers everything from confidential testing to find out if you’re anxious or depressed, to offering food samples that can improve brain health, as well as recognizing cognitive errors, dealing with addiction and living above loss.

“I would say that some of the main misconceptions about depression are that it’s only an attitude and that it only occurs in middle-aged people,” she added. “The biggest misconception is that once people are on antidepressants they’re on them for life.” She explained that, on a national level, about half the people who attend Dr. Nedley’s classes have attempted suicide. These are people truly looking for answers,” she said. “Depression is isolating. People lose courage and they can’t make decisions.” “What helps people overcome the barrier of shame that can come along with depression is offering genuine change and scientific understanding of what depression actually is, according to Corbett. She added that people learn not to sit in the ‘blame chair’ telling themselves they’re not doing things right. “Depression is traditionally treated with medications and talk therapy, but it’s known now that there is only one kind of talk therapy that’s effective. We teach people to do it themselves. We don’t use group therapy, but we make sure people know how to do it themselves,” she said. “What makes your brain healthy makes the rest of you healthy, too. These treatments are non-medical—healthy things that work for the whole body.”

She said that people whose lives are not working come to this workshop and they go home saying, ‘I can fix this myself.’ Participants also come back to this course anytime, anywhere in the world for a tune-up. “I love handing people who are depressed a quick success that actually works and can be permanent. Our completion rate for this program is 92 per cent,” she stated. “We do not take anyone off medications or ‘sub’ ourselves in for anything. A typical course of events is that a few weeks after the course, people are feeling better and they go to their doctor and say, ‘I’m feeling better and don’t like the side effects of these drugs: can I cut back?’ “And they keep doing that. We hear that a lot.” She said that she has taught many different workshops and courses in her life, but that this is her favourite. “It has a very positive impact

on social health—everything is better when your brains are working better. “Here’s some feedback we hear from people. ‘You’ve given me my life back’ and ‘I can concentrate better and I am making better decisions.’ People will often say, ‘I feel that my lights are back on.’” She said the workshops include everyone from young teens to seniors. She also said that men may be less likely to be depressed than women, that when they are depressed it’s more serious—they’re much more likely to commit suicide. “We give out a lot of information, but it comes down to a few simple principles. You get good background and you end up with workable stuff,” she said. “Although the workshop is not specifically geared for people with bipolar disorder, there is nothing in it that will mess anyone up.” Positive nutrition is

one of the most important areas of understanding for depressed people, she said, and added that it’s a matter of tweaks: a little more of this and a little less of that. “Dr. Nedley often says, ‘Isn’t it strange that in a time when we have so many more fun things to do than we’ve ever had before, we have more depression than ever?’ “I think we have far more understanding and less accountability in society; people grow up wanting to be helped and understood, but wanting less to direct their own lives. “This workshop gives you the tools to take charge of your mental health. It often surprises people that the answers are so easy. It’s not expensive,” she explained, “and the only side effect is happiness.” For more information about the workshop phone Rita at 250-3926598 or email her at

Williams Lake Tribune, Thursday, January 17, 2013 A19

“They call the Cariboo home” Bruce Mack: a passion for literacy Greg Sabatino Tribune Staff Writer Bruce Mack has an undeniable passion for community development. It started early on with his post-secondary education and it’s built steam ever since. Bruce is now the president of the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy and has made it his, and the society’s mission, to help promote awareness on literacy issues in the community. Bruce, his wife Lil, their two children and four grandchildren, now all share a passion for Williams Lake and the Cariboo. “We never really knew it [Williams Lake],” Bruce said. “We moved here in January of 1980 from Kitimat. I had a job — we’d just come back from West Africa — working as the district planner with First Nations in the area. We thought we’d give it a try for a couple years and that was 33 years ago.” Bruce earned a degree in political science. Lil’s degree was in English and library science. Following graduation they went with CUSO (Canadian University Service Overseas) to live in Ghana, Africa. “We wanted to travel, and CUSO sounded like a good option,” he said. “It really worked out well and we really enjoyed it. And, in a lot of ways, it really shaped our careers and where we’ve been since.” What was originally supposed to be just two years turned into six. “The first time we were in Ghana I did some adult education classes,” he said. “I was 21 at the time and one of the teachers asked if I’d help out with English. These were adults who just wanted to be able to read the newspaper and

support that.” The CCPL now offers programs such as Partner Assisted Learning, Books for Babies, financial literacy, computer literacy, workplace literacy, a Bright Red Bookshelf program and more. He said through it all, he hopes it’s helped make a difference in the community and in individual peoples’ lives. “You feel you can be involved and help make a difference, and that’s one of the things I like here,” he said. “And there’s been a huge change. Most of the real change is individual’s lives. Williams Lake is probably one of the few, maybe the only city, that has literacy as one of the goals in its official community plan. “If you’re in Vancouver what do you do? That’s the way it is and you kind of accept it. Whereas, here, I think you can get actively involved and make a difference.” He added the family has always been actively involved in sports and Williams Lake offered a great place to do that. “There really isn’t anything you can’t do so it’s been really good that way,” he said. “It was a great place to raise the kids.” Next week Thursday’s Tribune will be its Reach-AReader edition, worked on in conjunction with the CCPL featuring stories and photos about literacy. “Reach-A-Reader is one of our big events of the year,” he said, noting it used to be one of its biggest fundraisers until the province stopped matching the funding it received. “It’s still our biggest public awareness event and a great promotional tool.” Every copy sold of Thursday’s Tribune by CCPL volutneers will go directly to the CCPL to help with its goals.

Jill McLennan Jennings

June 10, 1957 - December 15, 2012 It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of Jill McLennan Jennings, at the age of 55 years, after a courageous battle with breast cancer. Jill died peacefully on December 15, 2012 at her home in Lac La Hache, BC surrounded by her loving family. Jill was born on June 10, 1957 in Elk Lake, ON to John and Elaine McLennan. She was the eldest of their four children and always took care of her younger siblings. Not surprisingly, she became a nurse. Jill was knowledgeable and always supportive of her coworkers. Her bright smile, positive outlook and caring heart, were a comfort to the patients that she came in contact with during her career. Jill will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Lauren, twin sons Kent and Scott, by her parents John and Elaine, her sisters Lorri Spaans (son Kyle and partner Brent Field), Patti Lucas (daughters Kristen, Alicia and husband Brian) and her brother Chris McLennon (sons Rylend, Brodan and Connor). Jill will be sadly missed by her partner Pete Neuner and his family of British Columbia (his son Clayton, daughter-in-law Jillian and grandson Easton, his daughter Tanya, grandson Braeden and twin granddaughters Mackenzie and Kaia). She was a cherished niece of Mickey and Joanne Major and Claude and Bertha Pellerin. In addition, she will be missed by many cousins, aunts and uncles and will be fondly remembered by Loretta Jennings and her family. Jill had many friends that she met while living in Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia that will miss her dearly. These include her nursing friends from college, nursing friends and colleagues in BC and Alberta, neighbours and people she met and worked with in the communities of High Prairie, AB, Fort Frances & Kenora, ON and Williams Lake & Lac La Hache, BC. Jill will also be missed by her Yellow Lab, Kobe and her cat Buster. She dearly loved all the animals that she and Pete raised on their “ranch” in Lac La Hache. She particularly loved their cow “Forrest”, her cat Gizmo, her chickens, the horses and many other animals that they often rescued. The family would like to gratefully acknowledge all the flowers, visits, donations, masses, prayers, food, phone calls and cards that were given to us by family, friends and neighbours to comfort us during this difficult time. Your kindness and generosity was greatly appreciated. The funeral arrangements, which were handled by LaPrairie’s Alternative Funeral Services of Williams Lake, took place on December 20, 2012. Donations to the SPCA, or the BC Cancer Foundation,, will be gratefully acknowledged by the family. Jill’s family will hold a celebration to honour her life in the spring of 2013 in Ontario.
